I have been playing FM for a long time now, and have got myself into a habit of wishing my team luck before a game, then just getting my assistant to do the half time team talk and I will make a full time team talk based on the result I wanted. What does everyone else do? Does anyone else have a set team talk routine they go through every game, or are you looking at morale, the way players react, or their rating? I'd also like to hear some proven methods because a good half time team talk is often the difference between a great comeback and a devastating loss.
When at home i'm more demanding!
I play a continental reputation team so, i expect to win every home match, so i act really pissed of at half time if i'm loosing, and disappointed if i'm drawing! it usually works!
when you're playing away thats another matter!
it depends on the importance of the match you're playing, but most of the times i either say 'play for the fans' or let my AM take care of business!
usually at the end of the match i often talk directly to the man of the match and congratulate him more than the rest of the team, but only when he really played good like 7.80 and so on!
