Hi, first post so go easy!

I'd like:

1) An option whereby you can readjust wage budget/transfer budget midseason. For instance I've had many occasions where I've had a decent transfer kitty but when it comes to offering contracts I can offer peanuts because I'm so over the wage budget. But then, perhaps this isn't such a realistic option...

2) When picking teams, an option to show just Match Fit players. I'm not sure how much difference match fitness actually makes to the game but oh well [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

3) Being able to suggest why you'd like a feeder club (i.e. for loan or for profit), and also an improvement in the standard of said feeder clubs - I don't want to link my Premiership club with a semi-pro club in the 3rd division in Sweden!

That's about all I can think of for now!

YES! i think in real life a team would be willing to offer a little (or even a lot) more money to keep their star player. i would like to be able to go to the board and ask for more wage money for ONE player, by name.

It would be nice to be able to view player attributes for long throws from the Tactics screen, just like you can view how good players are at penalties, corners, and free kicks.

It would save a lot of hassle from having to flip back and forth between the Tactics and Squad screens when designating throw-in takers.

You can. Just go to view, attributes and then pick long throws. It goes something like that anyway. You can do this both in match and any other time.

I just have listings for free kicks, corners, penalties, and influence under View-->Attributes.

My suggestion is to include long throws under View-->Attributes as well.

I would quite like to see a feature where you could buy Brazilian under 18s in advance like what Man United did with the twins - Rafael and Fabio. This would be quite a nice little feature I think.

Id like to see when you are a international manager club managers recommending there players. They could do this privately but if you reject they go to the media and depending on the player the fans could start demanding they are in the next squad.


When you are a club manager it would be nice to have an option to recommend a player to an international player.


Id also like to see the transfer market become easier to get rid of players. There was a case where i offered a plyer out eventually on a free but other clubs said no. So i ended up realsing him only for real madrid to offer similar wages and sign him on a free.

1. Really like that idea of having the option to be an Assistant Manager, could be asked on decisions like out of the two players who should play? If you choose a player and he plays well then maybe this could be how you build your reputation at first, or if you make a player happy at the club following a bust up or poor form.

2. Also the referee table should be shown in the match screen, otherwise you have to go back and forth to see if the ref favours home, away give pens or lots of red cards etc.

3. Favoured personel for managers should be there and could be picked throughout the game by yourself. Staff or Players.

4. Having a choice at the start of working your way up and earning coaching badges, which would be required to manager higher up. Like the Uefa badge need to manager a team in european comp. Could start as Assistant for league two side and work way up to being able to apply for managerial posts. Obviously could be complicated but this could just be a option that you choose to tick or not at the start like the start unemployed tick-box.

5. Interviews, like aims for the club when taking over, or at the start of each year. When you leave a club, they should ask why, and your future plans. E.g Time out of the game, international management or another club wants you.

6. The Plans for the future and general happiness should be able to be used so we could set our happiness at the club or plans for the future.

Very cosmetic but I would like to see kits change.
I realise this could throw up problems but it would be cool to see them change.

It would also be cool to have some say on the matter i.e. you are presented with several options and get to make a recommendation. I realise irl managers don't have a say with kits but it would be sweet.

I quite agree with Monsterhyde2 about this,

As a "newbie" we need help to get thrashed & a lot more patience from people who have been playing the game for years.

Perhaps a specific thread from newbies could be set up so that we can get helpful tips from people who want to help us & those that want to moan can ignore us

The ability to do filtered searches for players by current wage and reputation would help.

Also, increased ability to view player stats in general from the Tactics screen.

A better ability to edit the game, failing that make it possible to have a proper league system had up of International teams where you can't have transfers due to nationalities so have to rely on brining up better youths to improve.

How about a couple more stats from the game. In the A League, they use a stat called Balls in Penalty Box which I think is a very good stat to get more of an idea of how your team is attacking.
And also, how about an individual stat to see how many kilometers each player runs in a game. That would really see how much work rate a player does.

Re: searching by current wage, it may also be helpful to allow "sorting" by current wage when on the general player search screen. Future wage demands are generally similar to current wage demands for most mature players, so this sorting/filtering can help a manager determine more easily which potential signings will (a) fit under his projected wage bill and (b) will satisfy the per-player salary constraints imposed by the board.

Also, it would be very nice if we can temporarily assign players to alternate training schedules other than "Rest." e.g., we may have a standard "Striker" training that we assign our forwards to, but after a particularly intense game, we may want to assign a player to "Light Striker" training for 2-3 days. That way, the player gets the benefit of a less-intense workout session, but his stats will not drop as much as if he were simply assigned to rest for a few days.

I think that for fm08 their should be the following:
1) Possibility of employin General Managers at clubs to run the fianancial side of the club so you can focus more on the playing side (lyk hat Sammy Lee wants to do at Bolton)
2)In modern day football agents are a lot involved in transfers in fm08 how about the possibility of includin agents in the game some way or another ?
3) on the game you are informed you are on a wage eg: at newcastle im on £25,000 a week but were does this money go ? couldnt their be a managers bank acount and then you the player could do stuff with this money eg: invest into the club or even consider buyin a club yourself and running it as chairman ?
4) Ino i just said it above and the game is Football manager but what about the possibility of not bein a manager on the game and being a chairman aswell ?

ne way just afew thoughs their that i think would be good

I would like see the incluse of Contracts neoigations in place for International Managerment. At moment you get offered the job and accept or turn down. Should be more like real life and club version. They should offer you wage, Signing on Fee, Length of Contract, then Bonus money for Winning one of big cups.

yes to number 7!!

i have a few.

1) a minimal one which has been suggested, stop the ball sticking to the back of the net (not a huge problem, but annoying all the same especially after the comment "he loves to power them in"

2) when you put a player in reserves until match fitness returns, make sure they actually return!! too many times, theyve rotted in reserves for a month or two after a minor injury that should only require a week or two

Name me one person who wouldn't skip every single on of these after watching them a few times?

Personally I'd skip them after the first time without fail.

If you want to hear national anthems and competition themes, buy a CD and play them yourself.

If you want a trophy celebration then [url="http://home.i-cable.com/stephenchiu1/photo/The_cup.jpg"]here[/url].

Why on earth would you want to watch two rows of blobs walk past each other at the beginning of a match?

It can't be released earlier.

It needs to wait for the summer transfers to be completed so it can be up to date, and that's Septemeber already. Then it has to collate all that information, implement it and test it. Once everything is seen to be ok they have to send the game off to manufacture, which isn't quick.

October is pretty much the earliest you can expect an up-to-date football management game.

just a couple of things that i'd like to see added to FM08, would be.

- On the manager stats screen it says league and cup wins, i think this should go into more detail, such as how many promotions and relegations you have had in you career this would be a great small addition.

- On the match day with attendance of the game there should be a figure for away attendance as well, and maybe have a average attendance league in the league stats. On the club info screen, the clubs capcity, should also inclube away capcity.

Sorry, I haven't the time to read 19 pages but, forgive me if this has been suggested already, more feedback on games would be useful, both during and after.

During the game it would be helpful if you could find out not only what formation the opposition is playing but also the style of play. This need not always be accurate, mistakes could be factored in depending on the stats of the assistant manager. Information along the lines of:

The opposition are closing down very vigourously today, or

The opposition are playing a high defensive line, or

The opposition are playing a very direct style.

I don't think the 2D graphics really convey this information sufficiently, although it is something that a manager would be able to tell watching a game.This way you would be able to counter the opposition's tactics more rationally. You would also be able to pick up tips from successful computer opponents by analysing more closely how they play. Surely this is something which real managers do.

Perhaps more interaction with the Board. Like telling them that signing a mediocre 29 year old midfielder for £18M is not the best piece of business ever. Particularly when I already have at least six players at the club younger and better in his position.

I quite fancied lambasting the chairman in the papers but had to make do with transfer listing the player and dumping him in the reserves.

[quote] [B]Specific training[/B] [/quote]

I'm not the biggest fan of the new training SI implemented, that's not to say it should be removed, more that I think it's too vague.

How about being able to tell a player to improve a certain area of his game?

At the moment I have no decent free kick specialists, the best I have is poor to say the least, yet unless I buy a player to fill that role I'm stuck.

Why can't I say for example, [I]I want you too...[/I]

Work on your free kicks
Do extra speed training
Practice penalties

etc etc.

I know that I *could* set up a whole new training schedule for him, but that's no guarantee that he'll work on those specific areas.

[quote] [B]Loaning club feedback[/B] [/quote]

At the moment, we don't hear anything from a club that is loaning our players, either during or after the loan, would it be a bad idea to make it so they did?

If we send a player on a season long loan, a once a month review would be nice. Something along the lines of...

[I]Player X has been brilliant for us this month, if he keeps improving like he his, he's a star for the future[/I]

[I]Player X has had a poor season, his performances have dropped and he's not playing as well as we'd like or as good as he can be[/I]

[I]Player X has been injured this month, he is recovering well with our physio's[/I]

Or end of season review...

[I]Player X was an integral player for us, his performances have helped to qualify for Europe. We really think that his performances at this level means that he you should consider him for your 1st team next season[/I]

[I]Player X had a poor season, although he's young, we don't see him featuring for a club of your stature in the future[/I]


[quote] [B]Loan player attributes[/B] [/quote]

Can we have it so we can see how our players are improving whilst on loan? The little red and green arrows would be great. If you want, only implement it if we have scout reports active, as they're being watched every game, so the scout should be able to see how they're improving.

I would like to see:

1) innapropriate chairman interference, ok when a chairman steps in to sign a world class player thats fine, or when he sells for a ridiculous over price on a player.

But in my game ive had chairman accepting measley 20m for top class players, despite finances being very healthy,eg arsenal over 300m in bank but accepts tottenhams offer for 20m despite him being a young english prospect.

2) There should be a award section on players achievement cleary showing medals won by player, maybe represented by picture

Proper Team numbers for Friendlies/Internationals.

I'm fed up with having one of the midfielders being number 9!

Make it
1;
2,5,6,3;
7,8,4,11;
9,10

Rather than
1;
2,4,5,3;
7,9,6,8;
10,11;

Or whatever ridiculous numbers thay take at the moment.

Or, which might be easier, just prompt for squad numbers to be decided before each friendly/international.

That would make me happy.

Something similar to these real world examples..

The Tevez/Mascherano affair

[quote] [B]Possible rule changes[/B] [/quote]

I have suggested for a while now that SI should consider putting in rule changes, well sensible rule changes.

Such as:

Increasing number of subs in England from 5 to 7.

Removal of away goal ruling.

Number of relegation/Promotion places increased/decreased

Number of foreigners regulated.

Homegrown players for the league.

All these are ideas that have been discussed in real life, if they were to be introduced by the game, they would be introduced with several years notice in some cases (such as homegrown players) and in intervals.

I think it would be good, as has been shown, some players play up until 2040 and the rules in the game stay the same, which as we know in real life doesn't happen.

there is one thing i'd like to see in the game next time;

Under the move to affiliate option you should be able to pick an option which specifies for how long, eg until work permit/2nd nationality gained. It seems to me that they would then not have to waste time coming back to you in the summer, and gain the 2nd nationality quicker, and i think it would be relatively straightforward to include.

Just an idea for the future game.

It is fairly common in real life for teams with youth academies to basically cull the players from their squad that they won't feel won't make the grade. Many use an approach where they basically tell the player to find himself another club before his contract / scholarship finishes e.g. usually February / March time. The player then has trials at other clubs to try and win a contract there and if he is successful, he is released early and he signs.

In FM 2008, I would like to have an option where you can say to a player who has 4-6 months to run on his contract basically to find himself another club. With this, the players agent then approaches clubs and basically tries to line a club up for his employee at the end of his contract, basically in bosman . This can be applied for youth teams and also first team players who do not feature in your squads.

Just a quick thought on the option to let the Assistant Manager's take the team talks.

I'd like the option to step in at half time of a match if we're in a crisis situation or if it's a desperately important situation that you feel the Assistant Manager can't handle.

Just at half time where you move the mouse over Reggina tactics and get 'Quick' and 'Detailed' an added on 'Take Over Teamtalk' option would be good.

Also, being able to use your money to buy into clubs.... You wouldnt be able to buy many shares in say Arsenal, and when you take board votes etc (which would have to be included also) your votes wont count for much at all, but if you spent a bit on a lower club, you could vote yourself chairman and run the club (not tactics however, that would be your manager) how you wanted, assinging transfer budgets, wage budgets, even buying players a la chelsea and shevvy. How awesome would that be?

what I want: shirt #13 available if you want it in friendlies. I think its a bit harsh not having the choice to use it.

Seen it mentioned but I woudl like to re-iterate: More sensible AI squad numbering, also change the tactics around so that the defaults end up with more sensible squad numbering. We all know that #7 and #11 send to be MR and ML, with #9 and #10 usually being forwards, but this is not reflected in the tactics. I have had to spend about half an hour at the start of every incarnation of FM just to tweak all the basic tactics I use to reflect this. I know its a cosmetic thing more then anything but its the little things that make the difference.

I woudl also like to see more interaction with the squad captain, maybe having a big hoo-har over who the captain is. How about when you join a club, you are asked to pick the team captain. Say you are told who the current captain is and asked if you want to keep the current one. Then if the captain leaves the club, you are then asked again. You could also make a big fuss if you decide to strip the captain of the arm band for whatever reason.

Ok im done....

I'm guessing this has already been mentioned many times but......I'd like to see more interaction with the Assistant Manager during the match. It'd be nice to have a half time cuppa and discuss where the team is failing before letting rip on the players for 10 minutes or so.

Also more importance put on the captain. I'd like to be able to appoint a club captain from the start of the season. He could then be used to get the players together if the team was in relegation trouble.
