  1. Championship Manager 4 and FM 2005 had individual drills. As manager, we could develop training schedules, with different drills per day, and assign players and coaches to each schedule. I forget why it was simplified.
  2. If I'm keeping track of the letters correct, the following are possible with the letters given (and not repeating use). Dynamic Faces Dynamic Potential 1v1 Training Set Piece Training Here are my counts of letters and numbers (114 total) A: 10 B: 0 C: 7 D: 4 E: 10 F: 2 G: 3 H: 1 I: 10 J: 0 K: 0 L: 5 M: 2 N: 9 O: 7 P: 3 Q: 0 R: 9 S: 9 T: 11 U: 3 V: 1 W: 0 X: 1 Y: 5 Z: 0 1: 2 2: 0 3: 0 4: 0 5: 0 6: 0 7: 0 8: 0 9: 0 0: 0
  3. Players Outperforming their PA

    With the right tactics and instructions a CA/PA player can out perform a player with a double digit advantage in CA/PA.
  4. Contract Histories

    How much of each performance bonus or fee was actually paid out could be useful too. 30x appearance fee, 15x unused sub, et cetera
  5. It would be nice to be able to filter the scout assignments hub. I know I can go to a scout's profile and see his individual assignments. However, that doesn't let visualize and reduce overlap or redundancy. I know I can sort the scout assignments page by columns. But every time I drop an assignment, it scrolls back to the top. Therefore, I think it would be nice to filter by assignment type (geographic, competition, or specific player/position, loan reports), by geography. Filter by Assignment Fairly straight forward. If I filter by regional assignments, I see all of the regional assignments. National filter, national assignments. Competition filter, competition assignments. Player; player assignments (including loan reports), where as filtering for loan reports, only returns the assignment for my loanees. Filter by Geography/Confederation Alternatively, if I filter on geography then I see the scouts and assignments within that geography. For example, only want to see European Assignments. I'll be returned with my scouts assigned to the Central Europe region, scouts assigned to France, England, Italy, et al, and scouts assigned to Premier League, UEFA Youth LEague, Champions League, et al.
  6. Would like to see a screen that displays a contract history of players or staff members, including base wage, signing bonus, agent fee, and performance bonuses (and whether they were paid out).
  7. When you request a feeder club, you do get to choose one from a list of options. My post was in regards to when you pick the club for the board to negotiate a deal with. Rather than submit Club A and basically get a 50/50 shot, I'd like to submit Clubs A, B, C, and D. At which point the board goes away, negotiates, and comes back "We were able to negotiate these deals with Clubs A, C, and D; pick one." Or even, be able to populate an ever present list of clubs that the board considers when requesting feeder clubs.
  8. Could always try recreating historic tactics https://visual.ly/community/infographic/history-football-tactics-1863-2014 https://www.football-bible.com/soccer-info/old-football-formations.html
  9. When given the option to pick your feeder club, it would be nice to provide a shortlist of clubs, rather than a single recommendations.
  10. That's what FM is missing! Need more John Williams introductory fanfares and the Hans Zimmer's BRAMMS and Shepard tones;
  11. As a part of player/media interaction, could I, as a club manager, make a statement that could potentially influence a national team manager's squad decision? For example, I found a 25 year old Brazilian newgen, natural DM that can play as a DC, who looked to be a good option for my Arsenal side. I signed him up, but he failed to get a work permit because he hasn't had any international appearances. Sidebar, he's a 25 year old regen that I signed in January 2018. I didn't realize newgens would be created in their mid twenties. I loaned him out to FC Gronigen, where his form has been pretty good. Playing primarily as a central defender, 17 games, 4 goals, 3 assists, 5 player of the match awards, and a 7.21 average rating in his first season in the Eredivisie. The first half of his second season on loan, thus far, 17 games, 2 goals, 0 assists, 1 PoM, and a 7.05 avg rating. He's listed as the key player on the squad profile page. As his manager, and in the interest of my team, I'd like to be able to make statements to the media that I think a player's form deserves a call up. Or, as a counter to the media items that a player should be dropped from his national team for lack of appearances, that I can make a statement that a player's absence from my starting 11 doesn't reflect negatively on his ability, and that I believe he can still help his national team.
  12. Three parties (if not more) in every deal. Hopefully he's playing well enough that you might find a buyer in the next window?
  13. Old version question

    Ah, found it. Championship Manager 4. Way back when before the breakup of the SI/Eidos relationship. Makes me realize I'm getting old. I surely thought that was a feature in Football Managers (or World Wide Soccer Manager as it was known state-side). But no, it was back when I was still in high school.
  14. Old version question

    Ah, forgot about that training. The more complex one, where you would have to build training routines with various exercises...5-a-sides...keep away (pig/monkey in the middle)...sprints...distance runs...weight training...tactical review.
  15. Which release of the game had the complex training module with the various exercises? Did a brief internet search, but couldn't find it.
