  1. Hello again, I have a few ideas, but i want to ask how best to present them, should i make a single thread for each or one big thread with all of them presented ? World Cup in FM is very under utilized i think. I as a manager i am always subscribed to the WC when it comes around but i almost miss it, the only reason i notice it is because my players get called up. This item should be very publicized / Important in the the "world of FM" when it finally rolls around it should be the front menu item every time you press continue. Right now i have to dig down into the interface to even find the games that are being played or see results. I know maybe not everyone think this should be front material of their Management carrier when they are a club manager, but maybe a month before the tournament you could have a button like for when the transfer window closes that you could option in or out to participate in the tournament. You could be offered a job analyzing the games for a TV station or you could decide to watch it from the couch at home At least the results of the games and top 5 players form the games should be plastered over the screen when you press continue. The WC is an example, i feel all international tournaments should have more importance. For me WC and Euros are the biggest, but others like Copa America and Africa cup of nations, would probably interest others more. Also the results of the tournament dont seem to have a big influence in the game. Players reputation for performing well at a WC should skyrocket while a under performing one should take a hit. Most large clubs now dont want to discuss transfers of players involved in WC until after the tournaments, this could easily be implemented too.
  2. Right now i feel only a small amount of this is featured in FM, We have media items about a number of players transferred to and from your club, and in transfers there is confidence metering on how good each deal was, but i think added depth would give more realistic media items. Statistics showing the squad value when you took over a club and how it has changed over the period of your management. This could be tied to both transfers confidence and finance for your performance review or the teams yearly review on if it has increased or fallen. If doing impressively or poorly, there could be media items to criticize you or praise you for your performance in this department. Media items talking about your spending through the years, that could give you labels as a shrewd wheeler dealer or a manger who buys success. Media items talk about a player who "got away" (a player sold, for low amount, to a lower reputation club, now performing great or recently sold again for high price to a high reputation club.) When taking over a new club, Media could discuss how your transfer policies have been at previous clubs, drag up statistics that this may be a first job where you have considerable transfer budget as your previous clubs have not have not had that and discuss how you will handle the pressure of dealing with that or not. The reverse could also apply, going from a rich club to a poor one.

    It seems to me that it is a very special occasion if i see a curve ball in the match engine. While watching football, almost half the passes/shots have some curve (side not up and down). I notice this especially when shooting on goal and crossing, which realistically should be much more of a curve ball.
  4. Hello, I often find myself with an unhappy player or fans, as i can be quite ruthless when selling a player. But my motivations for the transfer are not seen at all in the game. Now my idea would be to be able to discuss a players status within my team after a season. Right now i can talk to a player after i sell him but only in very exceptional cases do i get any thing positive from those conversations. I would like to be able to sit down with a player after the season and say "hey you are getting on abit, and i cant see you playing more than 15-20 games next season and we have exciting prospects coming through that will need some playing time, will you accept that or do you want a transfer." I´m usually fine with keeping the player, but i know he will get unhappy if i do so i sell them and then the Fans are mad at me. What i see in this is also an opportunity to make interactions with players little bit more deep, my example here above is just an example. I may want to transfer one of my star strikers because i dont feel they fit the system anymore, and i would be little bit more tactful than sending them an SMS while they are on their way out
  5. i need 2 instructions or the passing of the ball needs to be improved for this game. I simply cannot get my wingers and full backs to cross the ball!! yes i´ve tried to give them instructions to do so but they keep passing the ball backwards, or towards the midfield. This is very very annoying, and to add to this if a winger gets to the byline in the box he will ALWAYS take a shot instead of passing it to a teammate in the 6 yard box for a simple tap inn. The two instructions i would want added, was "pass the ball forward" as i feel there are way to many back passes in the game, and "cross to the six yard box" and quite possibly if it coulc be implimented "pass to a teammate in a better position". it can get very infuriating when a winger in a bad position has 2-3 teamates in a better position take a shot on goal.
  6. i am getting realy realy fed up with managers from other teams heaping praises on some of my players, i´m not a high repped team, and i have managed to get some very impressive players while they where young and now i have fx the boss of lyon praising one of my players every month. now this is happening to alot of my players and i think its because of my teams rep, and that could maybe need a fix, but what i´m hateing most is that i cant respond, i want to tell them to stop talking about my players, i want to be able to report them for tapping up my players, and i want my chairman to step in and threat these teams with "reporting" them for tapping up in the media. another thing and i think this is maybe nto a feture .. but a fix .. i´m in the prem but low repped .. and my players are valued very very low .. even if its the best player in the prem.
