This is correct. In the second half of the season the matches should be in the same order as in the first half.

In which league?

It's certainly not in the the English leagues

Fixtures will probably never ever replicate real life fixtures, do you have any idea what goes into scheduling a footballing season? It would take more processor power than the game itself would if they tried to replicate real life exactly in that aspect.

An easier to see reputation type thing, and being linked with more jobs when you're out of work to help me have a guide as to my level.

For example, if I managed in the Brazillian leagues for 5 years and did quite well, I have no idea what kinds of clubs in England would see me as a good managerial prospect. Would lower PL clubs look at me, or should I be looking at League 1?

Spain, Italy and many other leagues.

Sorry, but I didn't know that this is not the case in English leagues.

Really? Are you playing on an Amiga 500 or something?! :-)

I'm not expecting exact accuracy and realism, but find it hard to beleive that the current system is the best possible solution, bearing in mind the two completely unrealistic senarios I mentioned above happen so frequently

Allthough of course it doesnt completely ruin games I personally think it does take a lot away.

If FM were to try and incorporate EVERYTHING that goes into deciding the fixture list for a season you would never play it, trust me, a read of this gives a tiny idea of what goes into the process. Then keep in mind FM has to arrange however many leagues you have running each year.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/paulfletcher/2009/06/secrets_of_the_fixture_compute.html

The amount of possible problems is incredible and things you would never expect can decide what game happen when, i would imagine if they could the people in charge would have it as simple as FM makes it.

Aye its a great read, i honestly had no idea what went into the fixture list, and thats just a brief article on it all, i can imagine it being a complete nightmare to go through. I'd imagine SI have taken the simple option purely because of processing time, it can take a while as it is to start a new season, especially when your 10-15 seasons in, so they will want to make something like fixture scheduling as easy as possible on the game.

On the contract negotiation screen there should be an option to lock out a contract clause. So I can say no you can not have a Yearly Wage rise, or no you can't have a Highest Earner clause under any circumstance. It is tiresome to remove them from every round of negotiations. Even better would be having settings in the Team Policy section where you can select an option to have them locked out of every contract negotiation. It would be nice if agents learnt/knew that you don't ever offer these clauses and it a waste of time asking for them.

Agents that accept wage reductions, removal of clauses, reduction of loyalty fee, on the behalf of their clients for a massive increase in their own fee (which saves the club money in the long term) should get sacked by the player. They are meant to be acting for the benefit of their clients not the club and themselves. I'd actually like to see that behaviour removed completely or limited to greedy agents, right now it's possible to do it with every agent in the game.

Agree completely with the first paragraph, I never offer yearly wage rises and it gets annoying removing them everytime. As for the second paragraph I havent really noticved that seeing that I try to pay as little as possible to agents out of principle.

Just a little thing I'd like to see added. A weekly message telling you what players out on loan played etc similar to the one you get during Internationals.

Isn't this possible with the help of the loan reports?

I mean when you send a player on loan you have the option to ask one of your scouts to compile a loan report. But I never used this, so I might be wrong.

Sorry if I repeat some things here, but the following are what I would like to see:

1. Better interaction between managers, i.e. instead of always "has no opinion", "has a poor opinion" or "feel you could become friends" how about adding "you are good friends" or "depsises you and would not wish to do business with you" as I believe Mark Hughes had with fulham lately?

2. These relationships should have an impact on transfer and loans, such as if the other manager dislikes you then its difficult to come to an agreement but if you get on well then you may get discount

3. As ive seen in FM handheld, when you tell a player that they have to wait for their turn in the first team, the fans give their opinion, as do the board. this should be brought into the PC version

4. The possibility of buying a player and loaning them back to the club youve bought them from for the rest of the season would be greatly received I think.

5. i STRONGLY agree with this: How about this idea:

Manager can send coaches to visit seminars. As an example: I am playing for Leeds. I want to send my assistant manager or coach to a tactical seminar. The seminar will cost the club 100k pounds. The higher ambition and/or determination and/or professionalism - the higher is the chance that my coach will have a "+1 increase" to the tactical training. We can build a scale, so that money needed to be spent will vary. Say, if the coach has Tactical Coaching 10 - the seminar will cost 50k. If Tactical Coaching is 15 - the seminar will cost 500k.

I guess everyone understands what i mean - there can be many ways to integrate this into FM13. Only if SI is interested in the idea.

6.

I have a few ideas, but not sure if any have been mentioned before.

The first one I would love to see is interviews with the board before getting a job.

I think you should be able to have an interview in kind of like a board interaction style meeting in which you outlay plans or at least long term objectives, tell them what kind of football you'll be bringing to the club and other questions I haven't thought of yet.

I think it would add to the sense of achievement when you actually get a job rather than just holidaying and waiting. Maybe even be able to ask the board questions some how so you know what they are expecting in more detail/more long term.

In real life you hear a lot about manager relationships with the board/chairman, it would be good to get it more involved within the game to.

Another idea is maybe adding in a press interview after you have resigned or been sacked from a job.

Outlining why you quit, or your view on why you were sacked with the aim of bigging yourself up for your next job.

You often hear about managers being sacked for no apparent reason (Lee Clarke for one), would be good to be able to come and have a moan.

Also think that the way you receive training reports needs to go into more detail.

It would be good to know exactly how players are training week by week so you can give them a rollocking rather than relying on a generic coach report to show you a sliding bar or just have the players say they are either happy or unhappy with training levels.

Not sure how this could be done, but I think it's an area that could be improved.

I agree with all this too. :thup:

Would be great to see this implemented in FM13 :)

Another thing I find frustrating is that when trying to sell quality players e.g Mesut Ozil or Bony Wilfried, I get reports saying that the asking price is too much. I have on many occasions, gradually lowered my asking price from 20million, to 15, then down and down and down until it reaches zero, but still I get messages saying that the asking price is too much?!?

Another thing I find frustrating is again when offering players out, I get messages stating that the players wages are too high...surely the club after the player should at least make an attempt to offer a contract to see what they can manage!?

Same with offering a player out on loan for 0 fee and 0% wages! I'd expect clubs to be biting my hand off, but instead there is no interest?? I am sure if tomorrow morning, Robin van Persie was offered to Inter Milan on loan for no fee and Arsenal continued to pay his wages, RVP would be snapped up immediately unless he himself refused!!

I feel this is something that has a big impact on the game, as a large part of it is selling players!

I would like to see an overhaul in the sponsorship department. From what I've learned, and please correct me if I am wrong here, the sponorships are based on the city in which the club is based in, its reputation but for the most part its the sponsorship deals already in place (in the editor) that for the most part decieds your future in this department.

For example, even if i support Liverpool with all my heart, if I choose to manage another team I've never seen them win the EPL. This should of course reflect negatively on their sponsor contracts and they should after a few years have a lower income from sponsors.

This should of course go the other way. If I manage Wigan to the Champions League the sponsor deals should increase at a larger rate than if i didn't.

At the moment I'm managing Southampton. I have a £90k sponsorship on my kits. As I earned promotion I would like to see at least a few new sponsorship deals. Of course I didn't get any and this annoys me greatly. IRL as West Ham has been relegated to the Championship, I assume that their sponsors will give them less money if they stay down compared to a promotion.

The suggestion to SI is therefore to add a function where I or some "PR-director" can negotiate new sponsorships during the game, not only in the summer.

If I meet a deal with a sponsor as Southampton and they give me, lets say £5m for one season in the EPL and they also give me a £2m bonus if I stay clear of relegation. If Liverpool negotiates a new deal for £10m they could get £5m if they win the EPL or £3m if they qualify for the Champions League.

I hope you understand what I mean :)

Presidential elections at Real and Barca that shake the footballing world, with election pledges to sign world stars. Also I'd like to see ambitious rich presidents at any club, present you with a new signing that they have bought sometimes and expect you to fit him into your side.

I also don't think you should be automatically in charge of all transfer dealings at all clubs in the game. If we have to suffer through press conferences, cos they're realistic (if you say so...) then this should be a feature in the game too as it's completely unrealistic that you would be fully in charge of your club's transfer dealings at all the clubs in the game. Perhaps it's something you could negotiate control over as you get more established, so you wouldn't always be limited in your role, and it would also I would think make you consider which club to take over, based on how much control you're offered by the chairman/president.

A board member profile

This would say things like age, gender, favourite club, where they made there money, there past sport ventures (if any), style (as in do they like to be hands on or leave manager to do it) and things like that.

Better press conferences

At least triple the amount of questions as there is just not enough variation, as well as more options on how you would like to respond.

Real life events

For example things like Fifa debates (goal line techonology), supporters getting angry, aggression on pitch, feud between players, players careers cut short due to injuries or ill health and long term suspensions (for example Rooney, Suarez and ferdinand).

No idea if it's been said as this thread is like, miles long lol, but in contract negotiations, if I'm signing a playmaking midfielder, I'd like to be able to add an assist bonus, you can have goal and clean sheet for goalkeepers and strikers, but just think that'd add a nice touch, then he knows, the more goals he creates, the more money he's gonna get, therefore, it'd be a nice incentive for him.

This will add next to nothing to the game but when the commentary says that the fans are leaving the ground I want to see the stands emptying.
After playing cm/fm for years and seeing all the improvements throughout the years there are a couple of little things that could be made for future improvements,

1. With player interactions with younger players you could suggest to the player that a loan spell will help his development and tell them what level you think will be best for them.

2. when it comes to the feeder clubs you could be able to discuss with players about going on loan to them.

3. more young players asking for a chance to go out on loan instead of just wanting first team football and only options being i will try send you on loan or transfers them.

4. the last thing i would like to suggest would take longer to do and i understand not everyone would like it. i would like to have the top 5 or 10 records so i can see how my players match up to players in history

Thank you for reading and hope some people agree with some of these ideas

Include relevant Latest Scores' date=' so in my case here it would be Group H Latest Scores.... Would love to see this implemented into the game! :)[/quote']
Filter agent offers to be changed, at the moment I do not exclude any because basing your decision of the players contractual/transfer status is foolish. What I'd prefer is to set what type of players I'm looking for, Poacher, Ball playing CB, Inside forward, etc, it's damn annoying to be constantly bombarded with keepers when I already have 2 excellent guys to place between the sticks or defenders to be added to my impenetrable back four.
id love to have the option to ask retired players to come out of retirement
Transfer deadline day is massive in R/L, so think this should be a massive in the next football manager. Even the last week of the transfer window should be alot more busy than the start.

Deadline day - Loads of roumors, reporters asking questions, deals falling through at last minute, deals going through at last minute, players registration not going through on time, waiting on results of medicals, Clubs offering and bidding on players. Clubs offering more money for players. Agents getting more involved, media asking questions etc.

I agree with all the above suggestions! :applause::thup:

I also think that:

1. In player interaction we should be able to tell players that if they get booked again they are going to be dropped or something, as some players will just pick up cards no matter how you play them or where, but you cannot discipline them for this until they get a match ban. Then, all you are left with is putting them in the reserves or selling them.

2. Why is it that I am forced to pay £40 million for some players who frankly do not merit this amount, yet when I sell players who merit this amount, I am forced to accept half the amount as other clubs will not bid this?? VERY frustrating

3. I think there should be interaction like a conversation, with the assistant manager regarding players development e.g. I say I want to send this player on loan, what do you think? Why yes Mr manager, that is great. Ok, what club/division should he go to? then the ass man can either say a club for them to go to, OR he could say mr manager, I will check suitable clubs for this player to go to, do you want him to get A. Playing time, B. good training or C. Both? something like that anyway....

4. In my news, I often get, Arsenal has offered blah blah to Real Madrid for £XXX. I would like to be able to target specific clubs/divisions where I feel a sale would be most likely.

5. I can tell a player how poorly they are doing in training, yet I cannot praise a player for their efforts that they are making ESPECIALLY after telling a player I will not sell them provided they make the effort to keep their place - this should be in training, NOT just on the pitch!

It would be GREAT to say to a player "You really have put in the effort lately, and I am going to give you a game in the first team to see how you get on etc etc" or "its good to see you have made the effort in training, I am going to give you that starting place you have been after"

I would jump with glee if these changes were brought into FM13 :D

I have a question: The suggestions are still open to FM 2013 or SI are decided the features?
<br><br><br>I think early for they have decided all the features. Decided or not, share your wishlist :)<br>

<br>

<br>

While playing FM, I’ve had an idea that may or may not have occurred to the team. I think it would be a great and quite innovative feature if the user had the possibility to click on the area where he’d like a player to pass the ball. Indeed, for example, sometimes your team is counterattacking and there are 3 players against only 1 defender + the goalkeeper, but the player in possession shoots with no angle and fails, which is really annoying as he could have passed the ball for a perfect (and very obvious/realistic) assist!<br>

Besides, I think it would be fun to kind of “assist” the players at times, thereby also taking risks, in case of interception for example (but there’d be no one to blame but yourself <img src="http://planetsmilies.net/winking-smiley-17138.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Wink" smilieid="4" class="inlineimg">).<br>

This way we’d be watching the game even more carefully and be even more active in the game.<br> Tell me what you think of that.

<br><br>I prefer like CM 2010, where u had a arrow pointing where/who you would like that player passed the ball mainly<br>

<br>

Okay, some new ideas and some that I already posted:<br>

<br>

<br>

<strong>Smaller additions:</strong><br>

- Dynamic rivalries: Depending on geographical distance between clubs, whether they are in the same league and past events (competing for the same table positions for some years, Manager A insulted Manager B, Club A won cup final against Club B...)<br> 

<br><br>I'm crazy to see it on game.<br>

<br>

I would really like there to be post-tournament win celebrations. Like with winning the CL, have the team celebrate in front of the fans for a short while and then have the medal presentation. It would be a nice visual reward for accomplishing a big win. Of course for those who don't want to watch it there could be a skip or continue option.
<br><br>it would be a nice addition<br>

<br>

7 year old thread.<br>

<br>

Would love to know how many ideas from this thread have actually be implemented as a result of them being in this thread.

<br><br>Could do a list the ideas that were used on game.<br>

<br>

<strong><u><font size="5">A board member profile</font></u></strong><br>

<br>

This would say things like age, gender, favourite club, where they made there money, there past sport ventures (if any), style (as in do they like to be hands on or leave manager to do it) and things like that. <br><br>

<strong><u><font size="5">Real life events</font></u></strong><br>

<br> For example things like Fifa debates (goal line techonology), supporters getting angry, aggression on pitch, feud between players, players careers cut short due to injuries or ill health and long term suspensions (for example Rooney, Suarez and ferdinand).

<br><br>1- FACT, I would like that too about the board member<br><br>2- This would be amazing, because this we would make us crazy to look for a good formation when those problems happen, making the game more dinamic<br>

<br>

Sorry if this is a re-post of some ideas, I haven't checked ALL of the replies... I'd like to see:<br>

<br>

1)Women's leagues - It would be great to be able to move from the women's game to the men's and vice-versa. Maybe the players could move too (i.e. women into the men's league, depending on league rules).<br>

<br><br>No no no, I prefer to see added Women's leagues and World Cup/Olimpic Games.<br>

<br>

<strong>International Management</strong> - The ability to encourage a dual nationality player to play for your nation, or the ability to discourage a player to play for another nation. It's frustrating when managing a lesser nation, and a talented player would rather play for his other nationality, even though he'll never be good enough to play for the nation. e.g. dual Welsh/English nationality...
<br><br>+1<br>

<br>

<font color="#006666"><strong><font size="5">Warm-up before substitution.<br>

<font size="2"><br>

</font></font></strong></font><font color="#003333"><font size="5"><font size="2">IRL planning a substitution managers usually tell the player they want to come on the pitch to go and warm up. In FM we also see some players warming up near the bench but it seems it isn't related with planned substitutions. Sometimes IRL managers plan their substitutions watching opposition players warming up so they can respond with their own substitution in time. Sometimes (in case of injury for example) a player has to come on the pitch without warm-up. In such cases it takes 5-10 minutes to him to join the game completely. So, what I suggest:<br>

<br>

- <strong>an option to tell the player to go for warm-up.<br>

</strong>- <strong>if player is coming on the pitch without warm-up, his condition should be 15% less than normal for first 10 minutes he is on the pitch.<br>

</strong>- <strong>an ability to cancel the substitution any time before the player comes on the pitch.</strong> Sometimes we make substitution and have to wait for several minutes till the player comes on. But often the situation in the game changes during these several minutes and we can change our decision but can't cancel substitution in FM. IRL manager can cancel substitution even if the player is already standing near central line.</font></font></font>

<br><br>+1 and the player would go in the game with more moral and confidence than no warm-up.<br>

<br>

a better training system please, it's the big shame of FM seriously. even CM did something better. Can see the training in 3D, make shedule ect.<br>

We are in end 2011 and the FM training system is freaking old and outdated. training is one of the most important thing in football, and in FM what you have to do? *moove a small bar two times in a season* <img src="http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif" border="0" alt="" title="Frown" smilieid="11" class="inlineimg">

<br><br>I'm according to u +1

Absolutely shedloads of ideas in here that I agree with and it'll take too long to c & p them into one reply! Would like to see these though:

* International Management improvement: Main gripe here is with squad selection. Previously, you had your squad from previous games and it told you which players were unavailable etc, you could go into national pool and add / remove from squad. Now it seems your AM selects his choice of squad and you can say yes or no to it. If you say yes, that's it - the squad is chosen. What I would like to see is an ability to say yes on principle and then add / remove from that. OR back to how it used to be with addition of just a news item saying who your AM determines should be chosen / dropped.

* Would love to see additions to ME / stadium graphics (i.e. more stadium types, supporters moving) but tbh this seems to be getting exponentially better each release so this is fine for me

* Training needs an overhaul - it'll always be tough to get this right and I know SI have overhauled it several times before (I especially remember when we could choose piggy in the middle - would it be that bad to go back to that "idea" though, maybe change it a little bit?

* Definitely top 5 / top 10 records, would love to see that. Can then see how your club regens / stars are doing compared to past club icons / legends.

* More views from club icons / legends - i.e. publishing a column in the club matchday programme that gets posted to your newsfeed. This could be anything from how they think you are doing to stories of their playing / non-playing past. Main obstacle with this is the huge creative writing task in making sure this doesn't become stale.

* More buildup for selected games - this could be televised games, first game of the season, last game of the season etc just to make it a much bigger deal as it is IRL. Survival Sunday or something to that effect. The repercussions on what would happen from all clubs if they won title / got relegated / promoted etc etc. Maybe even pundits giving their opinions on the matter.

* What about a TV highlights package at the end of each game week? Something showing the main goals / highlights of each game in the division linked together by pundits / features?

I'll stop now and the above has probably been said anyway!

Regarding Finances and the Wage Budget...it would be nice to have a breakdown of each player's loyalty bonus. When it was started, how much has been paid/how much is owed, how much will be paid to the player upon transfer.

Transitional periods.

When you build teams of 16-19 year olds they will eventually become too old to perform effectively, leading to an overhaul of the squad. However, if you have been dominating, the game expects you to continue doing so without failure. As we see quite often in real life, this is unrealistic and the upper echelon understand the need for reform.

I'd like the option to tell the board that this will be occurring so that the expectations are lowered.

I whole heartedly agree i with 3 options in the discussions (we have players retiring, squad too old etc). And the club could ask you to have a transition period depending on the stats of the chairman - so if the chairman realises the average age of the first 11 is 30, or the club has sold a number of players over your head, they could ask you to lower the age/rebuild the team at the cost of league expectation.

I'm sure this is an old idea but being able to try and tempt a player to change International allegiance via a private talk. Australia managed to tempt Shane Lowry and Rhys Williams, but failed with Gulum. The system where it says the player has a preference is a bit too inflexible. Better there be a conversation, whereby the player can articulate the reasons why, and the possibility to changing their mind + plus a media item where a manager can publicly wish, entice, plead for a player to change allegiance, or a player can say they come and get me when their dream of appearing for a different nation seems to be unlikely. (Obviously real players with Declared for Nation set can't be enticed either way.)

The ability to talk to a player about any aspect of his performance in the last match.

This is probably a bit far-fetched but in real life, players and managers aren't only involved with press conferences, they also they also feature on panel shows like 'A Question f Sport' or work as a tv pundit for live football coverage every now and again. You should get news items saying you're player got an easy question wrong or invitations for yourself to work as a pundit for a particular match.

When working as a pundit you will watch the match in a similar way to how attending a particular currently works in FM but before the match, in the half-time interval and after the match you will be able to discuss the match and comment on it with a couple of other pundits and managers as well as a presenter.

I've said for a few years now that I think Job Interviews should be included as it would make the game more realistic, rather that clubs just offering you the job straight after applying

The idea of having to undertake a job interview sounds like a good one but I fear it would end up being exactly like press conferences, before long they'd become utterly tedious & we'd pretty quickly work out what we should & should not say.

teams not taking skill drops when away.

morale having an effect, a team with low morale should not be magically better then a team with high morale

it also appears that my Left and right backs are magically at under 95% every other match in the 2nd half of the season.

also, media sources from abroad about players, aka africa. you miss a lot unless you go physically looking, whereas if there is a good player you usualy hear about it AND THEN go and look.

and man utd sent coaches out to scout IRL you cant do this in game.

In a conversation with a player that has been fined for a sending off there needs to be an option to say they have repeatedly been sent off in the season (three times in the last case) and they were fined for repeated offences. The players seem to have no idea that getting repeatedly sent off is a bad thing and the more times they get sent off the worse the disciplinary action I take. I suppose that comes under improving Player Interaction/Press Conferences/Talk to the Press which are still awful and downright "broken" in some cases.

It would be nice to know what the board expectations are when you're offered a job, it's all well & good being promised £60m to spend but how am I supposed to work out if that is money for an immediate title challenge with a squad of has-been's or the initial investment in a rebuilding project that is planned to take a few seasons?

Definitely agree with these!

Also: I see in my news that a manager has come to the game to watch my player as he is interested in buying him.....so why can I not go to a game to watch a player that I am interested in buying?? not fair!

You can watch AI v AI games, all you need to do is click in the '-' symbol on the fixture list & it will change to attend, it's also a very useful option when you're trying to get a job.

:-O really? so they would think that we could be interested in a player?? and I may be being thick here, but how is it helpful when trying to get a job? where is this symbol found then?

Just go the team's fixture list, the symbol will not always be there because your team will have matches at the same time but if there are any matches that do not clash with your commitments you'll see the '-' where the result will go once the match has been played.

As for the job thing if you're interested in/linked with a job & go to watch the team it increases the press talk about the possibility of you moving to that club, whether it has any influence beyond a cosmetic news item is something I'm not sure about.

The CA/PA Question

The system in itself is good, but i would like sometimes that attributes would change more dramatically.

What I am trying to say is that in real life you see some young player pop up from nowhere, Oxlade-Chamberlain being one for example. Not just him but sometimes players that maybe have been so-so for some time then have one season where they really explode.

I would sometimes like to see a young player get a boost in CA and maybe PA, because they are so many young players existing in the database that just end up nowwhere, staying too static.

I have noticed that when you attend reserve or youth team matches you cannot have a private chat and comment on their performance. Whilst it can be assumed that the respective managers do that, I on the other hand would also like to be able to comment.

It would I think, be good to be able to say to one of the reserve or youth players that they are doing/did well in their respective teams, and what is more it has not gone unnoticed, by me the first team manager.

Given that you can discipline a player for poor performance in either reserves or youth without having to go to the match, it does seem strange that you cannot also praise.

Obvious benefits would be morale boost and an increase in determination, possible increase in work rate... maybe.
