Not too long ago we dropped the question on our social media channels which features you would like to see improved in Football Manager 2020. Well, we have collected all the comments (thank you for that) and have created this article.
Ability to create your own character more
There are too little options for the manager to really create a character in Football Manager. You can select the way you look, but the background story or your personal life is something that has very little to no options in the game. We have seen this wish for years now and it keeps coming back.
Improve international management
This area is still very poorly implemented in Football Manager. Where you have tons of options as a club manager, you lack the options as an international manager. You should be able to select training methods, rest players and so on. We hope to see some improvements in this area in FM20, but seeing these options have been left out since FM06 we aren’t to optimistic…
With Womens football sky rocketing in the past few years, the wish to add womens football into the database of Football Manager. This should have its own structure with its own leagues, clubs and of course player database. FM20 may be coming a little bit too early for this, but we hope to see this being added at one point in the future.
More realistic transfers by AI
Ever had the AI spending tons of money on a player they will never use? Sound familiar? Well, we have seen this in the comments on social media and we can only agree. AI clubs and manager should be buying more players that suit there tactical needs and recent performances instead of looking at reputation and CA/PA.
Who expected Jamie Vardy ever to become a Premier League top goalscorer? He defied all the odds and developed from a mediocre non-league striker to an absolute star in the Premier League. Performances should be affecting potential more than it does in Football Manager and it should be possible for potential ability to change.
Being able to manage U21 or Reserves
One of the wishes we have seen on more than one occasion: the ability to start as a U21 or U19 manager and earn your reputation the hard way. No transfers for these teams, only squad building, tactics and development.
Although the game has been developing its graphics over the years, Football Manager is still way behind games like FIFA or PES. Fans are not asking for similar graphics, but at least make the game look better and not if you are playing a game on a Super Nintendo.
By adding the German Bundesliga in FM19, the number of licences in Football Manager has grown. However, we still want to see more licenced leagues and teams in the game, especially with the upcoming new privacy laws and the usage of logo & facepacks for content creators and bloggers.
Has the number of leagues in Football Manager changes in the last couple of years? The amount of standard leagues in FM has been on the same level for years now and it would be awesome to see more leagues added by SI and not the community. There are massive improvements available in Africa, North America and even big continents like Europe and South America. We want more leagues SI!
Do you feel we have missed out on any wishes you have?
