  1. Would be nice to start contract negotiations by approaching the player (or player's agent) about contract negotiations and get their offer first. Player Interaction -> Discuss Contract -> "The club is open to negotiating an extension to you deal. What are your terms?" Responses: "Not interested in renewing. Period" "Not interested in renewing unless conditions are met." (improve squad, increased status, playing time, et al) "Interested in renewing, not at this time." (basically gambling that performance in the upcoming season will increase contract") "Interested in renewing, here are my terms..." Player Interaction -> Discuss Transfers -> Transfer -> "We've signed [select new player] and plan to use him in your position. We expect you to [fight for you place] or [rotate with new player] or [mentor new player] or [be transferred away from club]." Responses: "WTF Mate, you don't respect me. Here's my transfer request" "This concerns me, but I'm willing to fight if you guarantee me fair rotation" "Bring on the challenge" "I'll help [new player] acclimate to the position and role" Player Interaction -> Discuss Transfers -> Transfer -> "We're looking to sell you because [you don't fit into my plans] or [you're not going to get enough playing time] or [we need to offset recent transfer outlays]." Responses ranging from willing to have agent seek transfer/loan offers to expressing desire to stay and fight for place. Player Interaction -> Discuss Squad Status -> "Your importance to us has changed and we're [increasing] or [decreasing]" Responses ranging from transfer request to gratitude and increased respect for manager.
  2. Agreed. For one, would like a more robust wage commitment page like the below (mocked in Excel) And a bonus tracking page that helps me better understand how much is being paid out in performance bonuses.
  3. You'd have to ask lomekian. The picture in my post (since removed) is from his post with the tactic.
  4. When in contract negotiations, it would be nice if there were a tab or list of players (and their contracts) that gave us an idea of what players of a similar position and reputation are getting paid around the league.
  5. That wasn't my match, was from the original post by lomekian.
  6. Have to say, this Arsenal 90s tactic is devastating. I tweaked the midfield roles slightly, using a MEZ on the side of the IF and alternate between a flat 4-4-2, an AMR, and an AML. After the latest update, the long throw-in seemed to be defended better (or appropriately) , so I changed to quick throw. My latest season saw a treble win. Aubameyang with 40 goals, Lacazette with 30+ goals, and Belotti scored 25+. Everyone of my first team outfield players scored at least one goal. I made Leno my penalty taker for the last three PL games, so even he scored a goal. Set PL records for goals scored, games won, and points gained. Had a league GD > 100. Aubameyang broke Henry's Arsenal record for league and season goals (and then I sold the 31yo to Real for £70M).
  7. Would appreciate it if the in-match notification of a goal also indicated how many goals the player has scored in the competition. Example: ALEXANDER LACAZETTE 22nd goal of the season, 16th goal in Premier League Assist by Mesut Ozil
  8. The scout report will indicate if the player is susceptible to injuries. Now, maybe this could be a hyperlink to the player's injury history, sure.
  9. You can see a player's injury history. Player -> History -> Injury History
  10. So, when does Mustafi get an update that reduces his decision making to 1? Partially saying this tongue in cheek, but whatever his decision value is, it's too high.
  11. I'm sure there would be a market for such a thing. It's that the NHL/NHLPA would want it's cut for the rights to use the registered trademarks and player likenesses.
  12. Does the wage contribution stay on my wage bill? Does it come out of the transfer fee? I sold Danny Welbeck to Newcastle for 15M upfront and 30M over two installments, with a wage contribution of 2.72M per season. The news item said 17.5M will be added to my transfer budget. On the Finances -> Wages -> Salary Commitments page, Welbeck's wages are not listed (nor Mustafi or Mkhitaryan's, whom I also sold with wage contributions). However, on the Transfer -> Clauses page, I do see the amount there.
  13. I doubt SI has a license to generate revenue off of a data update that has real leagues/players in it. And acquiring that license would likely negate any revenue from sales.
  14. When it's brought to your attention that a player out on loan isn't being played in a position or as often as warranted by the squad status agreed, it would be nice to adjust the understanding of the loan or even ask that the loan be terminated.
  15. Sounds like a similar request made here
  16. Would be interesting (in theory, and probably a little redundant and mind numbing in current media implementation), as a high reputation manager, to be offered a punditry job during major tournaments. Maybe be offered jobs in your home nation at first, but as your reputation increases, offered punditry position for other nations broadcast.
  17. On the one hand, it's cool that so many clubs are interested in your service. On the other, sounds like what you want is similar to this idea (more recent than your post). We, the manager, have an agent to whom we can indicate whether we are interested in new opportunities (and designate specific leagues/country/reputation).
  18. Agreed. There already is a comparison in the team report of may squad relative to the league. The ask that current squad players be compared against individuals in the same league of their positions. Or that scouts report where a scouted player would fall.
  19. You can tell your player to mark a specific player (or position) in the player position instructions.
  20. Congrats on the family expansion Riz! I missed that when it was first announced.
  21. I use my real info as well. That first time when I could use my real age was distinctly a weird moment. I did use "Sven Ahlmann" as a Swedish alter ego back when I managed Sweden to a World Cup victory in 2006. I still use that if I start a save and go on vacation through the end of the first season.
  22. The analysis they provide on upcoming opponents can be useful if you gameplan for each opponent.
