I wish for… A much better match engine! Some people won’t like this but I think they should make it more like the current fifa manager engine, which is far superior. Obviously football manager is the better game but it needs a better match engine.

3 main points:

1. carreer mode; begin in a sub-21 team and then you climb your way up. i reckon there is already a way of doing that yourself simply by applying for the reserve or sub-21 team, but there is no structured and custom made triggers that will enrich that experience

2. players can have press conferences as well, not only managers. that way will trigger repercussions within the squad, in the relationship with other clubs/players, etc.

3.investing in infrastructures is still so poor. there are tons of ways in which the game could be more realistic on that matter. what does it mean having a ‘stablished youth structure’ and a ‘state of the art’ one? we should be able to choose what kind of infra we wanted, such as dorms (for more youngsters’ slots), training fields (for faster tactics development), gyms (physic development), schools (less unsettling probs), etc. fifa manager has taken that matter to another level.

I wish for……a more realistic transfer system. All the previous games seemed to be if you want a top player you have too offer triple the asking price, especially in England and that just isn’t true. More in depth transfer negotiating for me thanks, perhaps meetings with chief-executives and agents, family members for younger players etc….

I wish for a more realistic league settings for the asian countries, espiecially in the south east asian countries. SI have indicated players in wrong positions, like players playing striker in real life is labeled as a defender. I also wish for more south east asian leagues like the Thai Premier league to be introduced into the FM14 arena. Thanks.

New feature: some sort of “Match Simulator” for testing formations without having to play actual games. You could pick a team to play against (as well as a formation/tactics to play against) and set your players up how you like them and find out how effective your formation really is!

Certain Transfers Go through which According to the Game Reputation System wouldnt Go through like Deulofeu to Everton on Loan, Wilfried Bony to Swansea, Victor Wanyama to Southampton, Ricky van Wolfswinkel to Norwich.
So I would like a Feature where We can have a Conversation with a Player who has no Interest in signing for your club even though his Club has Accepted the Buying Club’s Bid.

Some sort of implementation of sports science. For example, Steven Gerrard is “injury prone” in FM13. Up until the end of the season he was playing 90 mins in every match in the league thanks to special training etc. and it would be realistic to be able to do this rather than a player being injury prone for ever and ever and not being able to do anything about it

For me it would have to be integrated updates with real life new prospects as they happen in real life so a live update each month with added players from real life as they are discovered rather than regens, Also some sort of live form/ability update so for example if rooney is on fire in real life then he is also on fire within the game etc (for me these features are what will really take the game into the next generation of football manager simulation)

That wouldn’t work though. You couldn’t introduce a real life player aged 14 in game in the year 2016 for arguments sake, because it still wouldn’t be factual and would be worse than having regens and the less bright gamers would complain the game is wrong with the players age etc. Also live form updates wouldn’t work, otherwise what would be the point in playing the game, all your hard work would be worthless as the players form would rise and dip regardless of what you did, the whole point of the game is you change the players form, not real life. Seems like you want something more like FIFA, but thats not next gen, its just a different type of game.

I see your point (as every body plays the game at different speeds and the form thing would have the same problem. But this was a “wish” :) Also i9 know the difference between fifa and football manager thanks darren lol ive been playing champ manager/ fm manager since 1996 buddy lol

I never said you didn’t know the difference between FIFA and FM. I said it seems like you want FM to be more like FIFA, but I personally think that would be a terrible move as it would destroy the game. Felt like you were implying FM can’t step into the next generation before it becomes more like FIFA in some aspects, but what I was trying to explain is that would not be the next generation for a game like FM.

Well I’m sorry if I instigated anything, certainly not my intention and I can see how Gaz may have taken the comments badly, I don’t think he handled it well but I guess I can understand. I was simply offering my opinion but this is a wish list so peoples opinions should be left alone as opposed to debated, I didn’t really think that part through I admit so for that I am sorry.

Either way, its done as far as I’m concerned, I’m not the one with a problem to be honest. I just apologize if questioning the wish was seen as rude.

Kevin is spot on with this one. Id also like to be able to give my DoF filters in searching players much like you can when manually searching them (ie. Position, language, min/max age, nationality, etc). Too many times I either get great players for positions I already have covered or bad players for positions I desperately need. Might be fun if you could get into a few arguments with owners/DoF over signings. I know Im just asking for trouble in my fm14 Newcastle save but I would enjoy the new dynamic. (Think possible Alan Pardew-Kinnear rows that might occur irl)

Some sort of way to spend our money. Right now manager salary is just a number, you don’t accept the salary raising, because you can’t do anything with it. It could be more realistic, if I had the chance to buy something( House, car). Or with your money you could help a footballer with a poor background.

And once again thanks for the last year’s competition. It’s so much fun to play with my gift FM13 and I’m thinking about this site everyday since I got mine copy!!

I have been playing with danish side Odense Boldklub for quite some time now and i have been trying to implement the “Youth to Gold” system by Darren. When i say trying, it is because my players won’t rise in value at all. I have been playing for 20 seasons, won everything in the last eight and a have the best players in the world. Still, my best players are not valued at more than 5-6 mill. and not a single of my players have been nominated to the big individual prices, despite multiple golden boots, team of the year nominations in Chl and the highest match ratings in Europe.

A more dynamic system for the player values is needed. it shouldn’t rely entirely on the league ranking.

I should mention that OB is ranking nr. 1 in the world while the danish league has climbed to nr. 7.

if this isn’t chanced i will have to control every danish side playing European football to ensure the danish league ranking improves. Which of course is way to much work, if i have to enjoy the game as well.

How about an improvement to board request?
For example rather than just asking for the stadium to be expanded, you can set forward a number of reasons for the chairman to do so. Like “I think we have an excess of cash and it would be a good investment” and something like “We’re in Europe and we only have a tiny stadium” – that sort of thing.
I’d likefor it to seem like the chairman is properly taking these considerations into account

Ronan Donovan
7 years ago

I think maybe introduce a manager-chairman relationship thing so that if your relationship with him is good you’re more likely to get requests granted and less likely to be sacked.

The relationship would be dependent on things like results, how you manage finances, your behaviour in the media and how often you annoy him with requests.

Better interactions with staff, player, media and board. Especially the board is very static. (asking for parent club, stadium etc is too static).

More leagues such as Cyprus or even better an better editor so we can do it ourselves.

I like the game…obviously a few tweaks and the things mentioned above mainly seem like good ideas it was to improve the game. My suggestion is slightly different (so much so that I don’t even know if it can be done). I would like to see a separate programme (similar to the way that the editor is) called ‘Download Manager’ (or something like that). I would was this program to be accessible from within the game.

What I want is this to be a database of all the tactics, training schedules, graphics packs, skins etc that have been submitted to official affiliated websites . I would like it to work seemlessly with the game. For example I loaded a new league and most of the club badges aren’t there I would go to settings>download manager where the program would open up and I would search through the relevant categories until I find my desired logo pack, download it and then once back in the game I could just check or uncheck a box to enable my download.

Also it could have popularity and ratings where people would be able to see at a glance what tactics etc are popular and work well

How about voice commentary in FM14? I know it’s difficult what with the sheer number of players and the database size. But could start with a few leagues. Commentators could make references to the good/bad attributes of players while they attempt an action relevant to the attribute.

Would be awesome!

Better interactions with everyone. With players, team and the board. Current options are not enough. More work on the DoFs (maybe he can send me a report about a guy that wants to sign before he makes an offer) so I can talk to him and set some strategy in signing the players so he’s not after a striker if my academy is full of them.

And one thing I’m, dreaming about – tabs. For example when searching for a player I’d like just to open a new tab (like in a web browser) with his info and reports. Or even in my team when picking the squad I’d like just to open a new tab, check what I need and close it.

David Warner

I have several wishes, but only one entry. Oh well :P … In no particular order:

1) Make home teams less utterly dominant – I don’t know if I’m the only one that’s experienced this, but I frequently play away games against lesser teams (especially in the league) where, despite their quality being significantly lower, they play like Barcelona on a good day. I know teams should be better at home, and that unlikely victories can happen, but you should hardly ever see Man United or Chelsea – with their best teams – losing repeatedly to Norwich, Crystal Palace, Leicester, Watford and Derby County.

2) Better player decision making in the Match Engine – I’m pretty tired of quality players with good composure, decision-making, creativity and passing/finishing running into acres of space and not passing the ball when the opportunity is there, encountering defender(s) and then shooting/passing straight into the opposition, giving the ball away. Also, increase the willingness to pass the ball as opposed to taking low-percentage shots.

3) More contractual options – wage increases if continental competition qualification achieved, release clauses for failure to meet continental qualification stipulations.

4) A bit more variety in press conferences. Please, for the love of all things football, let’s get more options!

5) Make it a bit easier for clubs to loan players. In the real world I’ll bet many lower-league/level clubs would LOVE to take on young players from good clubs FOR FREE. I find that I struggle to get players loaned out, even for free, especially if I request them to have first team status. I’m careful to ensure that the player is equal or better than the teams current first team players, but I often am unable to get anyone to take these players… perhaps a bit more transparency other than “No viable offers for Player X”, for example “No clubs were willing to take Player X on loan as they feel he will not get the desired amount of game time”. To me, running into a non-descript wall whenever offering players for loan is not very realistic or productive.

6) Young players to be less mental about game time. You’re 16 for crying out loud. Calm down, have a drink of water, and get back to getting your ‘dribbling’ skill higher than 3.

Also more transfer clausules. An example, you are buying a new young player from lower league and the other club put as clausule that they hire the player for the next year
