Should definately have manager team bonding activities, like take the team for a meal if they win a derby game or something, also have improved youth set-up, like youth camps all over the world, and training camps.
FM09 makes it quite hard to sell players sometimes too, i'd like that to be improved so i can afford some young tallent! lol.
i would also like to be able to be able to declare intrest in jobs even if the clubs current manager is very stable etc.
Affiliated clubs should be able to be chose by the manager, like the pick as favourite team option.
And also a nice effect would be if a player is injured the manager can visit, or on a players birthday, just some manager-player time
