ASSISTANT MANAGER HINTS AND TIPS

By Updated on Oct 08, 2010   77376 views   2 comments
The following assistant manager hints and tips for FM 2011 are taken from the preview build of FM 2011 and may be slightly different from the final ones on the official release. Once the FM 2011 demo gets out, we will review them and change if needed.

Beginner Level

When viewing your team screen you can get your Assistant Manager's assessment of your squad by selecting 'Get Team Report' from the actions menu.

You can get your Assistant Manager to arrange pre-season friendly games by selecting 'Manager' -> 'Options' from the menubar and selecting 'Responsible for arranging friendly matches'.

You can get your Assistant Manager to renew your players' contracts by selecting 'Manager' -> 'Options' from the menubar and selecting 'Contract renewals handled by Assistant Manager/coach'.

When viewing your team screen you can get your Assistant Manager to pick your squad for a match by selecting 'Ask To Pick' from the actions menu.

The relationships that form between the backroom staff can now be stronger. This can mean that backroom staff, who have each other set as favourite staff, may leave the club together when the manager is sacked or gets a new job.

Your assistant manager will now give you up-to-the-minute feedback when in a game, providing analysis on tactics, performance, statistics and his pre-match observations.

You can get your Assistant Manager to speak to the media and handle press conferences in your place by selecting 'Manager' -> 'Team Name -> 'Settings' from the menubar and then selecting 'Responsible for attending press conferences'.

    Heres a few tips I picked up;

    1... Depending on who your Asst Manager is, they will not give you as in depth an analysis of a player as a FITNESS COACH would. (when you select "Reports" you can get one from any member of staff, but the Fitness Coach gives that additional info that other coaches cannot... eg, they will tell you if the player is the 1st/2nd/3rd best striker in the squad, they will give you a better analysis of the player's personality, etc)

    2... ALWAYS make sure your Asst Manager is responsible for arranging friendlies. You can choose whether or not you want to control the friendly match, but I would recommend against it. The Asst Manager will rotate all of the players during friendlies to ensure each player gets enough match practice to be fit to start the season. Plus should you forget to arrange a friendly this could be disastrous to your season, and the Asst will always select sensible dates to play these matches.

    3... If you have a good Asst and you trust him, always go with his nsuggestions rearding "Opposition Instructions"... other coaches will suggest you mark/tackle certain players, but if you just click on "apply Asst Manager advice" when you're in the Opps Instructions screen it will pay off 90% of the time. Unless you are playing a big big team (like Man Utd, Barcelona, etc) you may want to take the time to select your own, but it makes life a lot easier using the Asst's advice re: Opposition Instructions

    Hope this helps someone lol
