Stop the match engine allowing players to run through other players
1. Allow you to praise/warn multiple players at once for training, last match result or form.
2. Include women football, as well as allowing you to be a manager for U18 and U23.
3. Include pressure from media and supporters to increase/reduce play time of players, and let it affect their happiness/morale.
4. Include biased media, in which journalists have teams they support and some are less professional about it. Also, allow you to argue with journalists and even ignore them in interviews.
5. Allow training schedules to be set for the whole year in a easier way.
6. Make training schedules affect the tactic directly. For example, if you train play through the wings, players use the flanks more often, increasing the chance for them to take decisions in that direction.
if not playable, then at least make it easy for us database makers to 'add' that league as playable...
Bring back old scouting, nowadays I send scout to check player and create report card for just one week, why do I later get same report 1283928392 times, suddenly showing up again?!
In last two editions they've messed up something in database, in the past you will get wonderkids from more counries even if you won't load their leagues, and won't add players from top clubs/players from top leagues,
but nowadays it's messed up.
fix youth rating to be more 'flat'
One South American country shouldn't be 155, and other European country shouldn't be 69, just make it something in range 100-150 or 90-140 for all countries in South America/Europe.
Improved faces for the newgens
Better and more realistic sounds in the match (I know I am in the minority here)
RESTORE PREVIOUS MENTORING
The new mentoring (the one introduced a few years ago, I don't remember exactly) is something that I have been unable to understand and accept for several editions and that I find extremely annoying and amusing at the same time.
In my opinion, the previous idea (I do not remember in which exact edition of FM mentoring was changed) was more more more realistic.
A simple example - a new, young player comes to the team.
A more experienced footballer establishes some kind of friendship-mentoring relationship with him, maybe even at the request of the club manager (that's us :-)). For example, he drives him to training, trains with him in tandem during training sessions, gives him small tips, etc. etc.
Does this happen in reality? Yes or no? Of course it does! It was realistic in previous FM editions.
Nowadays in FM it looks like this: an experienced player wants to mentor a new player, but the President or Director of the club comes to him and shouts that "this is not possible, because the mentoring group must consist of a minimum of three players!!!" :-)
Then a resigned Cristiano Ronaldo spreads his hands and apologizes to the young player from the academy, while forcefully looking and wondering who could be the third in the mentoring group.
Does this happen in reality? Yes or no? Of course it does not!!! It is completely unrealistic!
After all, this is totally strange and I don't understand where this ridiculous idea comes from.
This absolutely must be changed.
Alternatively, there should be an option that an experienced player can have more than one player under his mentorship, say two would make sense.
In my opinion, there should also be two options: the manager directly asks for mentoring, or the player himself on his own initiative takes care of a younger player.
What do you think about this?
Being able to invite a player to have a conversation with them, specifically to iron out issues that the player has, such as not wanting to sign a new contract etc. This option should be available at any time (with the player having the option to accept or decline the meeting if they wish). It gets annoying when you have a player with 12 months left on a contract and they are unhappy about something, and you can't trigger a discussion to rectify it.
Being able to choose particular stands in the ground, to update. Be nice if you could select a particular stand, and ask to upgrade it/extend it etc.
Being able to adjust prices in the club store/merchandising, so you can try to generate business/more funds
Being able to approach the board with a suggestion of an affiliate with a particular club from around the world, and the chances of it being agreed being greater. Would be great if you could select a particular club with brilliant youth setup etc, and suggest to board, rather than asking for an affiliate and hoping they pop up in the suggestions.
