What's that? A new Wishlist Thread? What you would like to see in future FM versions.

Recommended Posts

The ability to set an automatic response to loans - similar to that of transfers of e.g. 'reject bid but accept higher'.

In this case it would reject this squad status but accept higher.

Even better put it in the development list options.

I'm sick to death of putting someone on development just for the AI to accept 1 bid of valuable and 20 of cover, and then the player goes on loan and never plays.

So I have to go into transfer centre and manually reject all the loans offering to use him as cover.

It doesn't need to be this frustrating

My suggestions:

- FMC/FMT (desktop version) editor.

- Cross-version save (what I mean is a feature that enable you, to transfer your FM16 save and play in FM17 went it will be released).

- Ability to create my version of roles and save it for future use. I know this is bit debatable, but my idea of certain roles are not the same from SI interpretation of them. Sure might they be wrong? Sure, but the idea here is for us the player be free to create our own roles.

I love those last two ideas! I don't use editors for anything really though.

Totally agree with this. It could make you seem like you have more of a personality.

I also think that there should be more things for you to say during team talks.

There could be options like 'Have a 30 minute rant' after performing badly or 'Open champagne' after securing a title

I would like, when a player complains about whatever and it gets to the point they want to leave, to have the option to say 'put a transfer request in then' and relevant options further down the line if other players talk to you about that transfer/ other player complaining etc. Things like , well he put in a transfer request so it became hard to hold onto him, or, he didn't want to be here, so I sold him so we could make some money before he left on a free.

Is it possible already to have dynamic preferred squad numbers? If not, can it become possible?

I.e. if you have someone break into your squad with a number outside say 1-18 that you have given them then sometimes if they do well they will want to keep that number going forward

Kinda like this idea, many players have strange numbers that they prefer. This would help out with that.

It's already partially there as newgens come through with unusual preferred numbers, but I'm not sure yet if your giving a player a number can lead to it becoming preferred

When you receive the press conference question "Manager X has identified player Y as the weak link your team", there should be a reply option along the lines of "he hasn't played a first team game for me in X years, so its irrelevant".

I often get this item about players who I don't play anyway

Really like this idea actually. Would also mean that if you handed the player the number 7 (for example) and they held it for a few years and grew a preference for it, taking it off of them for a new star could be a big point of contention for the manager.

An option when vacationing for the vacation to end if contract offers or job offers come in... Been asking for this for years now.

Haven't scrolled through all the suggestions so I apologise if they've been said previously.

1. More options to persuade a player to sign for you. Quite often in real life a player will drop a league to get match fit on non contract terms, players should be more accepting to this role.

2. Having chairman ratings, giving them personalities and more features for example the Leeds chairman has a habit of sacking managers quickly this should be considered.

3. A small minor detail would be to add the away attendance to the match features, I'm managing little Ilkeston and would like to know how many fans we've taken to Macclesfield on a Tuesday night in January.

4. I've said this before but I'd like for us managers to get agents to scout around potential clubs and negotiate a new contract.

Apply for jobs/holiday indefinitely and it always stops for interviews/jobs for me.

Admittedly I only tried it 2/3 times but haven't had a problem. If thats not working it needs reporting in the bugs forum.

That only happens when you are unemployed to my knowledge

My suggestions:

- Intergrated dynamic CA (to create more James Vardy, Ryan Mahrez and Ighalo - sb who come from nowhere and shine)

- Improve scouting system or at least provides some template assignments to reduce the time setting up scouts (who would not looking for < 18 years old wonderkids come from south america ?)

- Improve the coach advice in backroom meeting (How the hell my coach advise me to train my 3 players to focus on penalty kicks at the same time ?)

- Improve the assistant feedback in the match.

When you get staff tactical advice in backroom meetings, e.g. Defender X is currently a BPD but is better suited to LD then clicking on implementing it should do it ONLY for that player when picked there.

I feel there is already the framework for this in e.g. the individual responsibilities, so it is frustrating that (as far as I can tell) it doesn't work like that for staff advice.

Sorry if I'm wrong

The possiblity to sign players you cannot register for training purposes, especially before an arranged transfer.

E.g. some of the youth candidates I had let leave before changing my mind and trying to sign. Due to free agent deadlines they are now free agents until the summer. I'd like to think that they would still come and train with my youth team IRL even if they couldn't even feature in games at those levels.

In fact the same probably goes for all signings of free agents set for a later date, that they should join club as unavailable until date opening of transfer window, but if this isn't allowed under IRL rules then fair enough, perhaps SI can enlighten.

If there are no IRL rules regarding training facilities, then it might even be possible to see contracted players with future transfers arranged and 100% unwanted by their current club be allowed to start training at new club (albeit unable to play at any level and old club still paying wages)

Considering that Barcelona were signing players who they could not register during their transfer(registration) embargo I think that other than than the wages bit that's a reasonable feature to bring FM into line with real life.

Maybe by the year 20177 that might be possible, but doubt it'll be for 2017. Too much work for too little reward to maintain a number of databases.

Good idea, yes it is. Viable? No, as there will be only small group that would use such a feature. But I would be one of that group. :)

I have to disagree about this one. Those examples are simply players who are in good form in teams that are clicking well and suited to their playstyles in a league that is all over the place. They have not magically over night become way better. Situations like this can already happen. A guy in my save was nominated for the Ballon d'or with 156 CA (i had to check). That is decent but nowhere near Ballon d'or level. He simply had a good year in a team suited to his playingstyle, much like the players you mention.

Having started a couple of career games more recently (as opposed to building a dynasty at 1 club) one thing occurs to me - managers must have agents too?

I'm currently in the MLS and while I am not actively seeking a new role I am starting to get itchy feet. But rather than apply it would be great if there were ways in which you could instruct your agent to get you ideas of clubs / level of clubs that might be open to taking you on? I might say I fancy a role in France or Portugal etc (I don't want to go to a prem club just yet) and the agent would start discreet conversations with chairmen (or however they actually do it!) I imagine this sort of stuff happens in real life

In addition it would also be good for my agent to manage my contract renewals - i.e. i either get approached by the board or I ask for one. I'd like the option (maybe similar to the option to advise your PA to do stuff) to manage my contract renewals i.e. seeking better terms if I make them successful, extensions if its starting to run down, better terms if I show loyalty etc. Likewise if they become over zealous telling them not to seek new terms until x time remains would be useful

So often have I found myself not being able to do what I want to do with tactics.

In real life now, the majority of teams are adaptable to any situation, and have a style that's so intricately designed it's not able to be replicated in FM16. I would like to see a set of sliders or something of the nature to allow us to say things along the line of "don't close down until opposition are within 30 yards of the goal" or "don't shoot from these areas" etc.

Obviously it's unrealistic to expect it for FM17 - but i'd really like to see something like this implemented, it's something that could really propel the game to the next level of realism.

Isn't it possible to add College soccer to FM? I think it would be more of a challenge since you'll have seniors leaving and random freshmans coming in. This would make it more difficult to win the cup 2 years straight.

Something I hope that can be added in FM17 in regards to Scotland.

In the Premiership and Championship, squad numbers are mandatory whereas they are optional in the two lower divisions, League One and League Two.

Some clubs do use squad numbers in those leagues, Stranraer in League One and Clyde and East Fife do in League Two.

I was wondering if this could be included along the lines of when you're putting together your training camp squad for pre-season that you could be asked to choose between not using them and using them.

When managing lower league I usually give a trial to every foreign unemployed player that the agents offer me, to check out if they're any good. I rarely keep any of them. However, the problem is, a few months later I keep on getting offered the same players I already decided weren't good enough. Can there please be an option to filter out these agent offers? (specifically players that you've trialled before)

One feature I think that would be popular among the FM community would be classic databases.

For example you could instead of just having the current year, you could have other years i.e. 2004 -05 or 1988-89 whichever years are most wanted.

It would just be nice to play with classic teams, players and coaches rather than the current ones from today.

I'd like to see more options for starting reputation when creating a new manager, as the current Sunday league is too high - it takes all the fun out of starting in Scottish league two or Conference North and being headhunted by Scottish championship or league two clubs when you can actually just get those jobs after starting unemployed and Sunday league rep. No fun at all.

Additionally, and conversely, I'd also like to see the option to when picking your starting rep set it to that currently held by human managers on other saves located in the save directory.

E.g. Manager x starting rep = manager Y in save file 'man utd' at last game save date 25/12/2020.

That way you could start Sunday league and work your way up in one file, then start over with that character in terms of reputation, but not have to worry about carrying over detailed history or trophy wins that might cause database duplications or clashes.

Your manager wage should mean something other than putting a strain on your club's budget.

It does, it is a balancing act between high wages and contract length making it harder to sack you as your own club will have to pay more compo, but also harder for you to be offered another job as that club will have to pay more.

I just agreed a deal for a 20 year old goalkeeper to join me and my burgeoning group of young, high potential keepers. Looking at his attributes, he is is slightly better than my current three first team keepers, with much higher potential. The problem is he speaks no English, and I wouldn't be happy sticking a keeper straight in with no English. It would be nice to be able to pay for him to go on a language course now, so his English is better, or at least semi-existent, on arrival.

As a further idea, it would be a great touch if players with a high level of professionalism took language courses off their own bat, and you got a message on joining "Player A has spent the last few months learning English in preparation for his new environment. Player A can now speak X language level, when previously he could only speak Y language level."

In the miles tweet it seemed to happen automatically without an option, it is just the FM tweet where you get the option post-arrival.

Maybe it doesn't happen in every case though and your feature request could be for instances/options of it to be expanded

Would be nice to have the ability to export my tactics and training away from the main game, tinker with things via a web interface/app/program in a another location (Ahem....work) and import those changes back into the main game when I return home.

I'm just reading Harry Redknapp's autobiography and in one chapter, he describes how the then manager, Ron Greenwood would go and watch the youth team, even at one point blowing off a first team match for a youth cup away game at Wolves and how it made him feel ten feet tall as the manager really cared about the kids.

I know the option is there to attend the youth games but I'd like to see it make an actual difference to the players on the day. Perhaps there's a player close to the first team who puts in a proper performance because he knows you're there or another who has loads of potential who goes missing under the spotlight of the first team manager watching. Or even it helps the player add you to their favourite personnel list because you care enough about the youth team to go and watch them on a cold, rainy night in Stoke.

I would like to have an option to notify me about request from unhappy players while I'm holidaying so that I could attend to them.

It's very annoying to come back from holiday with a bunch of unhappy players due to some of them just happen to have period while I'm holidaying...

Hi, could it be possible to let us choose more than 3 countries on FM Touch 16 for players with iPad Air 2 who is powerful ?

I have been a longtime player of FM on PC but now that i can play on tablet everywhere i prefer the Touch experience. I know the Touch version is more streamlined but i would prefer to let players choose what we prefer without restrictions if our tablet power can afford it :)

I would like to see the same treatment of club managerment to National managerment. Kinda training, you having private talks with the national players (praising for example). My major annoying is i cant choose how many days to apply a training, intensity, the type, like in clubs.

While I like the changes that have been made with team shapes, there seems to be no reason why it still affects creative freedom, other than you didn't want to change too much at once. Decouple creative freedom from the mentality framework and expand the number of creative freedom settings from 3 to 5 to compensate.
