Please correct this too.

It generally happens when the schedules gets forwarded due to other matches that crops up. But playing 15 matches in march-april when it is known beforehand that national & continental matches are also there is not understandable.

In a league where you can't play more than a certain number of foreign player. How can you increase your standing if recruitment is so poor, despite having finance and winning 2nd tire continental competition thrice.

Will the Juve v Notts Co friendly be coded in. You could never arrange that fixture from the Notts Co side in game due to reputations but its "real life" so be good to see it in the game. Would probably lead me to trying a County save.

I guess I'm the only one who wants dynamic rivalries in next years FM? There was some rumbling about that a few months ago before I left for deployment, now it seems the community is fine with the static rivalries.

Please S.I. can you add dynamic rivalries, that way whenever the player brings up a club from the lower echelons of a league system they can have new rivals to challenge the player on sells/buys or trophies. I don't think Liverpool or Man Utd envisioned Chelsea as one of their rivals but they probably do now since Chelsea got taken over and challenging for all honours also.

Yeah, rivalries grow and fade irl. Long term saves with lower league clubs really need this.

Manage Anywhere, Anytime – the ability to add or take away playable nations in your saved game as often as you want. Manage in that country at the start of the next season- meaning you don’t have to stay in the nations which are chosen by you to be playable at the start of your career.

---------------------------------

The most importnant feature that I am looking forward too. Will love teh ability to swap continents at ease once you have conquered one. I usually only have Europe and the Argentinian and Brazilian leagues selected as playable to save time.

Yeh going to make for a dynamic career. Might do a Wenger and manage over in Japan for a while. Do the old switcheroo then. Eventually I'd like to end up back in Europe with the familiarilty of it all, but the biggest stumbling block before was only being allowed a certain amount of leagues (due to computer being not good enough lol). This feature will definitely open up the world of Football Manager.

I also wrote thousands of words about FM12 for blogs. Now just need them approved, translated, screenshots taken, videos done & approved, which is all out of my hands. Hopefully they'll be able to start in a week or so.

all the new features look brilliant and will ad something extra. The only problem i have with FM is when you play as a wigan or swansea and lost against manchester united and the fans are concerned.

New game looks top notch

Regarding the demo, you used to be able to do one league, english, spanish etc, and then get to 6 months and it would stop, and then be able to carry on the save once you have the full game but be restricted to the quick start league you picked, my question is, will we be able to do that in FM 2012 and then carry on, and then be able to change leagues still?

Transfers & Contracts – significant changes to the transfer and contract systems, including loyalty bonuses, better implementation of amateur and youth contracts, an improved transfer centre and the ability to lock areas of the contract negotiation when you aren't prepared to budge. This helps you to manage your budgets and gives you flexibility in what you offer money hungry players, or agents, as incentives.

I'm glad about improvements here, hope they work out as well as we all hope. I would love to see a transfer centre tab that shows something similar to this below. Would make deadline a bit more interesting I think:

FWIW, FM '11 was released first week of November, and that date was announced in mid-September.

EDIT: And FM '10 was released at the end of October (right about Halloween)

i was hoping the goal celebrations might have been worked on a little instead of players just running then standing next to eachother, yeah its a little thing but im a perfectionist :-)

Also saw a listing for the 22nd of October, so presuming it will be within a couple of weeks of that.

Made it myself - it's a mock up of sorts. It's just the sort of thing I would like to see in FM and I reckon it would be easily - comparitively with the other features already in FM - to implement.

I hope you added the posibility of organizing friendly matches in neutral grounds (This kind of matches only happen at the begining of a save, then only the World Cup and the continental cups, but those are not friendly). And...maybe it's not that important but, when a country is hosting an international tournament (World cup or continental cup) the team should be recognized as local, and not neutral like the other teams.

One thing i like to see implement is, on international management, you should be given the option to choose a pitch size for home games.

If they do anything with international management it should be able to assign preferences to what players you call up.

I.e., I can mark players with a "1" and the next international I'm asked if I want to call up those players.

Of course I'd have players marked in "2" also.

So if a player isn't available you can go to your number 2 choices and see.

Just make it easier.

I suspect that this will be possible, but the real limitation will be the starting database size. The demo comes with a very limited database IIRC, and as I understand the 'Manage Anytime Anywhere' feature, adding leagues will simulate player histories from the starting database. So adding if you add a new league, there would not likely be any real players but only fake players or regens.

The aspect of the game I'd like to see changed most would be really simple and would create a much better game for everyone;

Simply; add a box to the 'new game screen' that says something like "play with 'b' teams as 'reserve teams'", so basically the 'b teams' become reserve teams that you can control the squad & transfers & training etc.

Just so I can finally play a game in Spain. It's the best league in the world, but I can't use it on FM because of the stupidity of the 'b teams'... Now some people may like a management simulation where you don't actually manage all of you team, but not me.

That's how the Spanish league works. It's nothing to do with any "stupidity". Spanish managers don't control their B teams. That's how the league is structured.

Had someone explain it to me before, I'll see if I can find the thread.

Although I am waiting for FM12 to be released as soon as possible, I have to admit that I cant see the regular pre game hype that used to surround the forums in previous editions of the FM games...

That's cos I feel a lot of them are prima donnas that seem to think that SI or Sega owe them.

I'm excited about the game.

Any update to the regularity of team specific chants?

Please tell me that awful 'tune' that's played when certain teams score isn't coming into the game.
