The Football Management game can be played in so many ways and i love how everyone approaches it.
Some play to see the future and simulate, some to find the next big talent, some play for the financial fun and some play for joy of player development from youth academy to 1st team glory.
AND WE ALL LOVE WINNING
The rubiks cube that is Management.
Whichever way you like to play….. do it, live it, breathe it and enjoy it.
Me personally, i hate organising pre-season games.... that just kills me but everything else i love.
I do like the paragraph from Rober’s post:
It's not all about tactics. It's about training, moral management, picking the right players for the tactic, keeping all fit and happy with enough games. It's about squad hierarchy and personalities for your players.
It's a puzzle, the tactic might be the frame, but you will need a lot more than that.
This is very true and personally I believe that, FM is about building a vision plus a culture, a way of playing and finding the players to help you achieve that, within the system you establish.
Sometimes I think people forget that the FM engine does also have a stronger non-tactical side to it as well. To be honest, I wish this side of the game was developed further.
Not to mention there are lots of ways you can impact a game before, during and after the match. Tactics definitely help, and are important, but that alone will not get you all the trophies.
Also i forgot to add one very important thing.
....... Coaches are so under-rated and almost forgotten about in the game. They are the most important peolpe you need to have when trying to work-on and improve the tactics of your team.
