    This Soccer Manager Forum has been created with the intention of providing members with a comfortable place to discuss and debate primarily, but not exclusively, the game of Soccer Manager and football itself. The Forum presents members with an opportunity to share information, exchange ideas, ask questions and generally just to meet and enjoy the company of other football enthusiasts from around the world. Forum Rules & Guidelines. I. Posting Rules Note: Rules of conduct apply to posting and all profile fields of your user account, including, but not limited to username, user title, web site, avatar, signature, location, or any other informational field that is available for edit in your personal profile. While the Devs / Supervisors and moderators of this forum will attempt to remove or edit any generally objectionable material as quickly as possible, it is impossible to review every message. Therefore you acknowledge that all posts made to these forums express the views and opinions of the author (poster) and not the administrators, moderators or Soccermanager (except for posts by these people) and hence will not be held liable. You agree not to post or link to any abusive, obscene, vulgar, slanderous, defamatory, hateful, threatening, and sexually-orientated or any other material that may violate any applicable laws. Doing so may lead to you being immediately and permanently banned (and your service provider being informed). The IP address of all posts is recorded to aid in enforcing these conditions. You agree that Soccermanager / Devs, Supervisors and moderators of this forum have the right to remove, edit, move or close any topic at any time should they see fit (if the latter happens always remember before getting mad and saying something you may regret that it can be appealed against. Yes, a thread may not have needed to have been closed etc; but closed/deleted threads can always be re-opened). As a user you agree to any information you have entered above being stored in a database. While this information will not be disclosed to any third party without your consent the webmaster, administrator and moderators cannot be held responsible for any hacking attempt that may lead to the data being compromised. II. Basic Rules 1. Flaming 1.1 Do not post any messages that harass, insult, belittle, threaten or flame another member or guest. Debates are fine, but argue with the point, not the person. 2. Trolling 2.1 Do not come to this site with the purpose of starting a dispute. Anything seen as trolling may result in you being infractioned by SM Moderator or a straight ban by SM Dev / Supervisor depending on the severity. 2.2 Note that a person disagreeing with your opinion is NOT trolling; keep it civil, even if you're sure the other person is wrong. 3. Spamming/Spam bot attack 3.1 Please do not double post or cross-post the same message in multiple forums. 3.2 You will not mass-PM or mass-email multiple members of this site the same message. 3.3 Worthless posts with no content and nonsensical posts eat up space and waste everyone's time. These are not allowed on any of the boards. 4. Offensive Posts, Links or Images 4.1 Do not use profanity, racial, ethnic, religious, sexual or other slurs, or post any other offensive or vulgar material. We have members from different countries, religions, backgrounds. Even if you express a point of view that is very popular in your culture, it may generate a negative reaction from members in another part of the world so please exercise tact. 4.2 If you post links to other websites that contain offensive or vulgar material then this should be accompanied by a warning alerting other forumers to this. For example, if you wish to post a link to a Youtube music video where the lyrics contain swearwords, please comment that it contains swearwords. A common sense approach should apply and will be applied by the moderators. Mods have absolute discretion to remove any links they deem unsuitable (the inclusion of a warning will not alter this). 4.3 Do not post any images that be construed as sexually gratifying, offensive or racist in nature. e.g. women in bikinis, underwear or any semi naked picture. 5. No Disclosure of Personal Information 5.1 Do not disclose any other member's email, real name, address, phone number, IP address, or other personal information. 5.2 This includes the posting contents of emails and private messages without the sender's consent. 5.3 Do not bring personal disputes into the forums with Moderators or Supervisors as bans and warnings issued to other users are considered personal information. 6. Misleading Titles 6.1 The subject line of the post should be as informative as possible about the content of the post. This also reduces duplicate posts. Deliberately misleading titles may lead to warnings and/or infractions being issued. 7. Duplicate Posts 7.1 Use the search tool at the top before posting and make sure someone has not already done a post similar to yours. 7.2 Duplicate or similar threads are subject to being merged or closed at the discretion of the moderator. 8. Playing the Role of Moderator 8.1 Members that are not a moderator should not correct posters like one. If you have a problem with a post, use the "Report This Post" button, rather than playing the parent. More often than not, that causes more problems than it fixes. Let us handle what is ours to handle. 8.2 This includes (but the list is not exhaustive) reminding another user to use the search tool; pointing out a duplicate thread or accusing another member of posting spam. 9. Attacking/Disobeying the Moderators 9.1 If you disagree with the actions of a Moderator, it is fine to do so as long as it is done so in a polite and constructive manner by PM. Creating threads on the matter instead is not a suitable method of resolving an issue, and said threads may be closed. 9.2 If you are unable to discuss and resolve an issue amicably, then please refer your grievance to a Supervisor; providing evidence to support your side of the dispute. 9.3 Dancing around the rules, purposely skirting them just to invoke a reaction is not advised. If you are deemed to be doing this then appropriate action may be considered. 9.4 No posting on behalf of someone who's banned. That'll probably get you banned, too. The idea of being banned is that they're no longer a part of this online forum community and are no longer allowed to interact here. 9.5 No making threads that give glory to banned people. It's not a violation to mention them in passing but no threads that focus on them. Prohibited threads include "What banned member do you miss/would you bring back?" type of threads. They're banned; don't give them that attention. If a Dev / Supervisor or Moderator gives you specific instructions in a warning, and you blatantly disregard it, you are subject to being banned. 10. Board Specific Rules 10.1 Please check the sticky threads at the top of each board for any board specific rules. 11. One Account per User/ Ban Circumvention 11.1 Multiple accounts are not permitted for members of the forum. 11.2 Never create another account in order to get around a ban. This may lead to this account being banned and your banning time being extended on your first and at an exponential rate thereafter. 11.3 If you have a grievance with being banned then please contact a Supervisor. 11.4 If you feel that you have a good reason for needing more than one account, contact a Dev / Supervisor and ask for permission prior to setting up a new account. 11.5 The actions of trying to get around a certain ban that has been put on you such as registering under a new e-mail, username, or IP address will not be tolerated. This could highly result in a permanent ban on all levels (not just forum but the actual gameworlds that you are in), so please use the appeal system and wait until your case has been resolved. 11.6 Using an account solely to report posts is not permitted. 12. Thread Hijacking and general etiquette 12.1 Taking a thread off-topic to pursue one's own agenda is not permitted. 12.2 Excessive use of caps is widely regarded online as shouting, so please avoid this. 12.3 Please avoid the use of excessively large fonts. 13. Abuse of Report Bad Post 13.1 Multiple reports per thread, duplicate or frivolous reports will be deemed abuse and subject to warning and/or infraction. Every report is addressed. Please do not report something more than once. 14. Plagiarism/Ripping of Material 14.1 Copying content created by others be this images, prose or any other medium is not allowed. 14.2 This includes copying from other forums. Permission needs to be obtained in advance from anyone whose content you wish to reproduce or copy in any way before posting it on this forum. 15. Filter System and use of Inappropriate Language 15.1 Due to the range of ages and cultures that play Soccermanager a filter system is in place to automatically edit out certain words, which are considered to be “swearing or abusive”. Even if a member notes a word being filtered out that they do not deem offensive, it does not give them the right to keep that word in the text. Users are therefore expected to review their posts, and edit out “starred words”. Failure to do so may result in action being taken. 15.2 If a word doesn’t get past filter (spelt correctly) then it is not allowed full stop. 15.3 Playing word games to get around the filter system are not permitted. e.g. – “Its*sucking fhit. The people who make these rules are*cunning stunts.” Any member that tries to play word games to get passed filter will be punished appropriately. 15.4 Replacing words with punctuation to infer a swearword, or part editing words, is also not permitted. e.g.- “This is a load of $£%!”; or “p!ss off”; and will again be punished appropriately. 15.5 Substituting swear words for “urban” alternatives is not permitted. e.g. “Flooking hell!”. Moderators are quite capable of looking suspicious variations of words up in online “Urban Dictionaries” or “Profanisaurus” publications. 15.6 Substituting swear words for abbreviations is not permitted. Any member that posts an abbreviation will be punished appropriately. 15.7 We are sure there are many more correct allowed words that can take the place of these, plus it keeps posts looking more neat and tidy. 16. Forum Reputation System 16.1 Abuse of the rep system is not permitted. If any of these rules are broken, or any misuse of the rep system occurs, the SM Dev/Supervisors reserve the right to remove the rep, remove people's ability to rep, reduce their reputation power or points, and even to ban members, as they see fit. Devs/Supervisors also reserve the right to check people's private messages if they suspect that any activities that break the above rules are being conducted through this system. Some examples of what is deemed as abuse of the system are highlighted in the points below. 16.2 Rep Bumping - This is when people leave rep to raise someone else's rep points or power. 16.3 Rep Begging - Posting asking for rep. PM'ing asking for rep. Repping asking for rep. Asking for rep in signatures or usernames. Any form of pressure to rep is not allowed. 16.4 Rep Announcing - Telling members on thread you’ve left them Rep. This can be considered as a hint for some back. All members will see from user CP who/when and which thread no need to broadcast it as these sorts of message may be treated as Spam. 16.5 Rep Roundabouts - Repping between the same group of people back and forth in order to raise rep quickly and secretly. 16.6 Empty Reps - Rep given without any comments. Will be assumed to be rep bumping. 16.7 Rep Bribing - Offering rep as a reward/sweetener for anything given in return either on or off the forum. 16.8 Usernames, user titles, signatures are not allowed to contain references to rep. III. Serious Infringement Rules These rules are separated from the basic rules as the penalties for breaching these rules carry the severest penalties. 17. Advertising 17.1 Posting of advertisements for products or services, links to auctions, affiliate links, links to promote websites, and so forth is not allowed. Only exemption to the above is with approval from Soccermanager only. No Supervisor/Moderator can allow any thread containing advertising without Soccermanager’s prior consent. 17.2 Links to commercial or business-related sites are not permitted in signatures. 17.3 The use of spam bots is not permitted. Any account suspected of being administered by a spam bot will be immediately banned. 18. Racism, Homophobic comments, sexist comments. 18.1 Any comments deemed to be Racist, Homophobic or Sexist will result in an immediate IP ban from a Moderator, which may be made permanent on review by a Supervisor or Dev, dependent on the context it was used in. 19. Hacking into Another Account 19.1 If you are caught hacking into another users forum account, then you will be banned. It is also very likely that action will be taken against in-game accounts at the discretion of SM. 20. General Trouble Making 20.1 If you are thought to be causing trouble by a Moderator they will notify Supervisors and if they agree then there is a big possibility you will be removed from the forum. 20.2 This includes leading another poster into a thread or “board trap” where one member tries to make the other one snap by messaging them or subtly suggesting something that would cause one to argue back. Our Mods are fair and if they pass judgment that you are here to cause problems and you don’t agree then again contact Supervisor . 20.3 This includes posting with intent to be deliberately disruptive or continuing to post views/information that is without obvious interest to the wider forum community. 20.4 This includes posts that can be construed as being detrimental to both the forum and the game or encouraging others to act in this manner. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- These rules are subject to change. We reserve the right to remove, edit or move posts at our discretion. These policies, while sounding official, are meant as a way to reduce any confusion over what is and isn’t allowed. Please to not be put off by them. Welcome to the forums and we hope you enjoy participating. Many thanks, Devs/Sups and Mods.

    Hello, the game could have sponsorship choice at the end of all seasons, example: Nike, Adidas, under harmour, etc. and players would choose one of the options one with more others less dependent on their performance in the championship.

    Hi there, First time player here. I picked up this game after finding the 2016 version on steam a day or two ago... instantly hooked! then i find this Version so there goes my Saturday! I can't believe this game is free to play! OK so it might not be the Rolls Royce football manager simulator that shall not be named but this game blends both the arcade and the simulation aspects of this particular 'game genre' so well! I really enjoy being able to take control of high level club functions as well as managing the team and this game executes those options well. And when i said free to play, I mean free to play! I've gone straight in with a low league team and worked the magic without the need for 'pay to win' credits! Another aspect of the game is that it has both a very polished and uncomplicated UI, but also a clearly detailed, well engineered and fine code base powering this! So with that, And having enjoyed my first few hours so much I felt compelled to part with some of my cheddar as a way of thanking the devs. It's the right thing to do! you guys deserve everyone's appreciation! The only issue i found was that i didn't want to cheap out and just get the smallest thing so i looked at the combos, the small is nice, but then i was getting concerned i would OP my save with this stuff. i appreciate you can buy each thing individually but who doesn't want a combo deal?!? I had a though about how you could maybe add a feature to allow us to pick between a few ratios of the items and set a price then see how much we get using those settings... for example... (if you select high or low in one it removes that option from the others. Normal is the exception, its always selectable) Credits dropdown/radio: high, normal, low Points dropdown/radio: high, normal, low Coins dropdown/radio: high, normal, low Value To Buy: $/£_________ You get: x Credits x Points x Coins Buy? Some other thoughts... Being able to hire, train and fire staff and entrust responsibilities. (director of football - could do contracts and sign players etc) Allow us to search for sponsorship deals, image rights, stadium naming rights, training ground naming rights Adjust (season) ticket prices, food and beverage prices, shirt replica cost/quality/prices, merch prices, rent stadium for events pricing. Allow us to upgrade/modify non-football infrastructure - merch, pr (profile, local events/offers, youth), groundsmen, mascots - cheerleaders, medical, stadium infrastructure, training ground infrastructure Control of arranging friendlies and off season tourneys More media interaction, and some team/player communication both in and out of game High risk corruption options.. (intimidate refs, fix a draw, get a red rescinded) get caught big fine, fired etc. Apologies for the essay. I really love this game! I was working to make one myself. you have all the key features i wanted in a game! Thanks for this.

    After playing the game for a while I have the following suggestions. 1. Coach that gives you a scout report on each player in your team. When you get youth promotion you know very little about the potential of the player so you have to sell them to scout them. This is the most useful addition to the game for me. 2. You cannot scout free agent players or see any stats, so how about you can invite the to trial at the club and get your coach to report after training. 3. When promoted or win trophies your fanbase should increase. If you win the Premier league in your country or the champions league you should see good sized increase in support. 4. Ability to pick either the current bundle of prizes on manager level up, or one larger qty of one thing instead. I personally would rather have club points than money and free money can be overpowered for lower league teams. 5. Remove reserves from the list of potential players from training. I have to get rid of poor players completely fast rather than risk them getting trained instead of first tteam players. 6. Allow position modifications. Too many players are FLR or AMLR which are pretty useless in the formations given. Spend say 50 coins to change positions. 7. Allow extra club points to be transferred between games. When you have purchased club points you have to use them all in one game. They should be transferable if not spent. 8. Have clubs respond with "worth more" transfer requests with suggested value. 9. Have players value increased by being top or near top scorer in the league as currently that makes little difference to the player value.

    1. the teams earn too much money, at the end of the first season with the inter I had 80 million to spend 2. job offers should arrive at the end of the season, or sooner but the actual change of the team should take place in June / July, otherwise a team will be abandoned in the middle of the championship 3. the noble players should avoid small teams, at least at the beginning. with Atalanta I managed to take many samples including mbappè, it is not realistic 4. the injuries are always a lot. every season I play at least 3 players out for 5-6 months 5. in the popularity tab, the print item is always at zero, I do not understand why 6. the offers from the players on the transfer list always come only from very small teams (icardi and perisic I have sold them both to frosinone) it is not realistic 7. workouts every week are annoying, you should be able to set up automatically and not having to see them every time

    I would love for there to be more than one squad that i can pick from like i can make a squad filled with reserve pplayers which i switch between when im playing a game that is not that important or to give the young players some experience

    Yeah, I'm currently on year 2036 and all my opponents have trash-tier line up. It seems like there's a bunch of problems that needs solving, and I'll list what I've seen: - Old players get worse but aren't replaced until retirement (they should leave earlier if their performance no longer matches theirs peers). - Youth players sucks a lot, theres a ton of 1k value new players on tier A+ teams (better teams should attract better youth). - AI needs improvements on line-up selection - good players are put on reserve for no reason, Cruzeiro had two 95~99 FC that I never saw them playing not even once. - There should be some player mobility, with teams selling some and buying some, simulating up's and low's on finances. - Free agent mechanic is broken af, it makes too damn easy to have line-up of 90+ rating. Selling all players for full value and buy new ones for half should never be possible. - Goalkeepers need a pass prediction mechanic, they wait until a cross is completed to reajust position. They should ajust while the pass is happening. - I feel like the performance gap of 70rt~90rt should be narrower than the sum of the perfomance gaps 70~80 and 80~90. The way it is, I believe the better team unrealistically dominates a lesser team. - The game needs some randomness, upsets never seems to happen while in football we all know they do. All of above results in completely one sided games, with my team making 20+ shots on goal, while opposing team makes 0~2, maaaybe 3. Oh and yeah, players that I buy from free agent status stay on loan list for the rest of the season, this is just annoying as teams keep asking for loans I'm not interested in giving (please fix).

    many people may not understand the point what im saying is that id like to switch between diffrent squads to play less important games like real life clubs do like a squad filled with youth players so they can get experience

    Simulate Matches / National Team To begin congratulate the creators. Good game and easy to use. Simulate matches: It would be convenient to have the option to simulate the matches, as you can do in career mode of EA Sports Fifa. It would make things even easier. National Team: It would be brilliant to have a national coach mode, but very important, for a greater realism should be integrated as in real life. If they make you an offer of national coach, you have to leave your club and focus on the national team. It would be nice to have a system where you can know Statistics of the players of the country State of form cheer up Talks with players Another thing I would like to see added to the game in general is the option to change the numbers in both the club and the national team. Thanks

    That! There are data packs but to edit xml in android is very difficult, and a tool to create teams, competitions, stadiums, players, would help a lot and make the game more intuitive and even better for us to create more leagues and leave the database even bigger!

    I manage to win the League undefeated in 30 games total. My team is AE Larissa, a mediocre Greek team. This is the fourth season of the game. I put all the Points in the academy and i had a lot of good players (values over 5.5 M) and also i had a fantastic super star! In one year of getting first team football he raised from 16.5 M / 77 attack, to 77 M / 88 attack ! And he is just 22 years old!

    Very nice, and he is even worth £77m at the young age of 22 wow

    I agree with most of what Braeriach said would also like a stat that shows the average rating in the last five games, so we can tell which players are in the best form.

    Also if I sold a player to an opponent team they won't play for them regardless the value or buying price. Its senseless to sell or loan out players...

    Hey team sm. I really enjoy playing this game but there is something i want to change! First, it is the older players values. They shouldn't be valued more than the younger players! For excample Buffon worths more than De Gea and he is 39. This is not realistic at all. And the other one is that if you can, bring the overall ratings back. Would be very helpful☺☺

    I ve seen that other teams are making transfers but very very few. 1-2 players most. It is true that most of teams have the same rosters as the starting season so yes this is something that could be fixed in the future.

    I'd like to see the Manager points reward system given some level of intelligence. For example I get the same reward for beating a bottom of the league Serbian team as I do for thumping arch rivals Partizan 7-0 in our domestic cup final. Similarly beating Barcelona in the Champions League, a huge achievement with my comparatively lowly rated players gets me the same reward. It would be nice to see some sliding scale of reward instead of the current static one.

    Kevin Luckassen - free transfer (signed for 400k) at the start of the game. I honestly think he is one of the greatest players I have signed. I played in the lowest English League, too him with me when I got offered to some German club and then when I was offered the Stoke City, I took him with me again and when I was offered the Arsenal job...yet that is correct I took him with me again. He became my top goal scorer at all the jobs except the Arsenal job. I started a new game today (Arsenal job made me frustrated to a point of resetting). I started with Chester FC and guess who is signed first...yeah that's right...Kevin Luckassen. See attached. Let me know if you found anyone better for cheaper, please.
