Hi This is something I have thought of before and I think it is something that can really add to the game as press conferences can get a little samey. As an example I have just declared interest in the Arsenal job , I got an interview, didn't get it but it went on for weeks. Yet in every press conference for the games it was never mentioned. In the real world the journalists would have been bombarding the manager with questions over his future almost ignoring the upcoming match. This would be something that would really add to conferences, also big issues could be brought in. Things like, questions on VAR, or general questions about the standard of refereeing, maybe after a controversial decision in a big game involving other teams. A general question about diving in the game for example. Also in Olympic years you could be questioned about other sports. I think it would be a big addition
I would like the "PR" symbol to come with more information than "Player is happy/unhappy with Manager's comments." The press conferences often cover several topics, not just the match, and include several questions that pertain to tactics and players. It is impossible to know exactly what ticked off the player as it is now. I just know that he is unhappy, but not whether it's because of a comment I made about a teammate, the match, transfer rumours, etc.
is it just me or is the way a match plays out a little too dependant on pre-match press conferences. Making your team out to be a way better side than it actually is in press conferences can usually completely change outcomes of games. Just cause I've build up my below average team in a press conference doesn't mean they should perform like Barcelona on the pitch. before when I used to let my ass man handle the press, I always noticed him saying things like it would be a difficult task to beat an opponent that in fact I should be easily crushing. But just cause he said it, it changes the entire dynamic of the game. ever since I took charge of press conferences I noticed I could beat better teams way more frequently and I'm losing to crappier team way less frequently. it doesn't just affect the scoreline, it also affects how teams play. I would understand if it was between 2 similar level teams, a manger could seek a little boost from press conferences, but its been too influential in FM in my experience. I don't want to get into another ramble but I think the reputation of a club is more influential on the match than the players playing, morale, and form. but this is a whole other topic.
