  1. Soccer Manager 22 can get onerous quickly for those who like playing with big teams and win everything in the first two-three seasons. So, here are some suggestions as to how you can make your career saves more realistic: 1. One-nation clubs: An incredible challenge would be to transform a club into a one-nation club, so that you only have either Portugese or Brazilian players in your team. Teams with the biggest headstart would be Wolves and Shakthar Donetsk. 2. Youth teams: Using teams with only players under the age of 24 would be an incredible challenge. You will have to sell players who exceed the age limit, be it Mbappé or Haaland. Teams with the biggest headstart would be RB Leipzig, Borussia Dortmund, RB Salzburg and Barcelona. Red Bull Network: The Red Bull Company has purchased clubs in the German, Austrian, American and Brazilian league, form which RB Leipzig is the most dominant, followed by RB Salzburg. RB Leipzig are known for their electrifying, fast football and using a lot of under 24 players. What would be an amazing challenge would be to buy only under 22 players and one of them, every year needs to be from either RB Salzburg, RB Bragantino or RB New York Bulls.
  2. I think these are all great features but they can only be added in SM 23 and Soccer Manager are already being lobbied to add international career mode so the 'create-a-club' feature might not come until 2025.
  3. What should be added in transfers are swap deals, buy-back and sell-on clauses. Also manager should have an option in determine what will be the player's role in loan deals. Also, loan wages should be split.
  4. 1.Assistant Manager: Ok sort 2. Pre-season Tournaments: Slight money booster 3. Player Interactions: Copied from Fifa 20. 4. New countries and leagues : Ireland and Romania. Will be able to play with the worst club. 5. Improved Manager system: Adds a level of grind for custom formations and what not. 6. Improved Player models: Meh 7. Improved Stadium Models: Alright 8. Loan-to-buy and Pre contract deals: This is what I wanted. Biggest feature so far. Massively improving transfers.
  5. Yes, derbies, especially the important ones should at least be in the game such as Liverpool vs. Man. City, Real Madrid vs. Barcelona, Real Madrid vs. Atlético Madrid, etc.
  6. Um I was talking about real life transfers not in-game.
  7. Due to the virus, most clubs were cash-strapped as fans weren't allowed and many sponsors pulled out. But the weird thing is that both Messi and Ronaldo are moving clubs, the British transfer record has been broken by Jack Grealish, and now Mbappé might move to Madrid for 170+10 million😐. So, this transfer window might become one of the most unique of all time.
  8. It's kinda odd that, due to the virus clubs were cash-strapped, but both Messi and Ronaldo have moved, so this tranfer window, is going to be a unique one. Here are 15 of the biggest transfers of this window: 1. Lionel Messi to P.S.G (GOAT) 2. Cristiano Ronaldo to Man. United (GOAT) 3. Jadon Sancho to Man. United (90% probability to become GOAT) 4. Sergio Ramos to P.S.G (GOAT defender) 5. Gianluigi Donnarumma to P.S.G ( Best keeper in Euros) 6. Jack Grealish to Man. City ( Broke the British transfer record) 7. Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea ( One word: Deadly) 8. Raphaël Varane to Man. United ( Already succesful) 9. Dayot Upamecano to Bayern Munich ( Destined for success) 10. David Alaba to Real Madrid (Finally, a Galactico!) 11. Achraf Hakimi to P.S.G ( Can play anywhere on the right flank) 12. Martin Ødegaard to Arsenal ( Can be successful) 13. Manuel Locatelli to Juventus ( One of the best wonderkids in the Euros) 14. Memphis Depay to Barcelona ( Long-awaited!) 15. Ibrahima Konaté to Liverpool ( Scouser)
  9. With the power vacuum now open, other teams can challenge for the LaLiga title: 1. Atletico Madrid: Atletico's main target would be the title defence and it can happen. They already have one of the most deadly strikers of this century and one of the best goalkeeper right now. They have strengthened their squad with the signing of Rodrigo de Paul and also have bought wonderkid Matheus Cunha, who will likely operate as a striker or wide midfileder. 2. Sevilla: Sevilla have strengthened their full back position with the acquisition of Gonzalo Montiel and Ludwig Augustinsson. They have also strengthened their midfield with Thomas Delaney. Also they have signed Rafa Mir and have got Erik Lamela in a swap deal. I can't think of any other team🤣🤣🤣
  10. 1. Milan: Milan have added the likes of Fikayo Tomori, Mike Maignan and Sandro Tonali while relieving themselves of the best young goalkeeper in the world and their main free kick taker😐. So, you would have to make some tweaks and improvements but overall their squad is good. 2. Inter: Inter's financial crisis saw them sell two of their biggest stars, Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi. However they have tried to maintain the balance with the signings of Dumfries, Dzêko and Calhanoglu. They have also added Zinho Vanheusden who is a wonderkid from the Belgian League. 3. Roma: With Mourinho on the wheel, will he guide them to victory or, as usual, crash? It will be exciting to see how Tammy Abraham will do under Mourinho, in the lead striker's role. Rui Patricío will be between the sticks this season. They have also added Roger Ibañez and Bryan Reynolds to their roster.
  11. 1. Burnley: In every prem. career mode I do, Burnley always get relegated. Their old approach certainly doesn't adapt to the premier league. It would be quite difficult to do an rtg with them. Their best transfer was Harry Williams from Liverpool. 2. Crystal Palace: C.P are another team that fight to avoid relegation every season. With Patrick Viera at the helm, will they change? Their top transfers are defensive such as Joachim Andersen, Nanthaniel Clyne, Marc Guehi and Michael Olise. 3. Norwich City: Norwich City have made a lot of signings, which will make it easier to guide them to European football in a couple of seasons. The signings of Lees-Melou and Rashica will go straight into the first team. They aslo have added to their talented youngsters of Max Aarons and Tom Cantwell, Josh Sargent and Billy Gilmour(on loan). At last but not least, the easiest team would be Tottenham Hotspurs. The Spurs are in the Conference League this season, which won't be in the game. They have sold Alderweireld, Rose and Gazzaniga, also letting talented youngster Juan Foyth leave. However they have signed Bryan Gil in a swap deal including Erik Lamela. They have also bolstered their defence with Cristian Romero and Pierluigi Gollini. What would make your career mode more exciting is selling Kane and using Son as your number 9, as seen in their match against Man. City. Honourable Mentions: Brentford, Leeds, Fulham, Barcelona(🤣🤣🤣)
  12. Well, if they did add these things, it would be as 'bug fixes'. And I think SM22 Devs main goal right now is to fully patch up the game for its 1st October release and I don't think they are going to add any more features currently.
  13. Well, no offense to the game, but they kinda have copied most features from Football Manager. The game's great and as it is a 'manager game', we can't expect to actually control the players and play matches.
  14. Well, it's official. SM 22 is dropping on 1st October and its beta is releasing day after tomorrow. Really like the assistant manager and preseason features that have been added. Just a twinge of sadness that international management isn't being added. But big cheers to the Soccer Manager team for rolling out the game so early. Hope to see it on Steam soon!
  15. Yeah, Leicester City have also secured wonderkids Boubakary Soumare and Patson Daka. And call me Salty.
  16. Players to grow: Mostly youth academy startlets. I expect Oscar Mingueza to grow by a significant amount. Fati would be probably 81 or 82 and Pedri would reach an 80 or 81. Eric Garcia should receive a 77-80 for being the starting CB in spain's many mathches in the euros. Players to peak: I think, Griezmann tried, and he did decent in the euros, so his rating should be peak instead of declining. Alba and Roberto should also peak. Players to decline: Look Messi, Pique and Aguero are declining because of their age. However Pjanic,Coutinho and Umtiti are declining and they might stay that way. New transfers: Sergio Aguero, Memphis Depay, Eric Garcia.
  17. 1. Manchester United: Manchester United have finally added Sancho to their arsenal and the Varane deal is 95% completed. It will be interesting as we can get rid of players without messing up the squad depth and adding star players like Haaland, De Jong etc. In terms of player growth I expect to see Dean Henderson, Luke Shaw, Mason Greenwood etc. to increase. 2. PSG: Playing with PSG would be amazing as the first team is already set and you can fully stabilise the squad depth in the first season itself. They have added Donnarumma, Hakimi and Wijnaldum to their roster who would be drafted straight into the first team. Only replacements you need to make are Jesé, Rico, Herrera and Kurzawa. With such an amazing squad you can start competing for the Champions League title in the first season itself. I expect, in player growth, Abdou Diallo, Kimpembe, Mbappé, Sarabia to grow. Clubs like Norwich City and Watford have added a lot of players to their roster and I think they would make excellent road-to-glory teams. Honorable mentions: Leeds United, Barcelona.
  18. The question's quite difficult. Both are total beasts when it comes to goals. Their only major difference is value and positions. In my opinion, as Mbappe is a general forward, the best way of playing him would be to pair him with another striker. Whereas Haaland is a target man, so he plays best with wingers or another striker. I have used with 4-3-3 Holding and 3-4-1-2 custom and it worked very well. So in my opinion buy Mbappe if you are willing to break the bank and sacrifice a lot of players or in the 4th or 5th season(If you are using a big team). Whereas Haaland can be bought for just 100M$ which is less than Mbappe's 222M$(in the first season!).
  19. This is actually quite difficult as there are lots of declining players. But I have found just the right thing. Sell Phil Jones, Juan Mata, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant, Nemanja Matíc and (this is pretty radical) Anthony Martial. Also recall Lingard and sell him (He's declining so sell him as soon as possible). Recall Joel Pereira, Andreas Periera and James Garner for cover in the first team. Give them the lowest role possible. Now buy the one and only, Jadon Sancho. Also buy, as cover, Yari Vescharen and Adam Hlozek. Do the same things with the facilities like I told in my Lille forum. Now on to the tactics. Use a 4-3-3 Attack and don't change the instructions. Use two wingbacks(Telles instead of Shaw), two stoppers, two playmakers, one advanced playmaker(Bruno), two narrow wingers and one target man(Cavani). Cavani will be your cap., Bruno will be your pen. and free kick taker. Telles will be your corner taker. Follow these tactics to get lots of wins.
  20. First up, sell Pied, Maia, Fonte and the loaned out 28 year old cb. Send Karnezis out on loan. Recall Leo Jardim, and Show(Make Show a hot prospect, don't make him a backup player.) Now buy Brandon Williams, Oscar Mingueza and Edson Alvarez. These will be easy signings as they have only one year left on their contract. Alvarez will be a good replacement for Fonte as he has 85 captaincy. Mingueza and Williams will be good substitutes. Upgrade scouting network once to get two scouts and then ignore the upgrades. Keep upgrading training and club zone and if you don't have enough money for training keep upgrading club zone as it is your main income booster. Totally ignore youth academy for the first two seasons. Now for the tactics. Use a 4-3-3 Attack with two stoppers, two wingbacks, two narrow playmakers, advanced playmaker, narrow wingers and one target man. Make Yilmaz a rotation player and sell him the next season. Use David at ST and Yacizi at CAM. Yacizi will be pen. taker while Ikone will handle the corners and Bamba will handle the free kicks. Convert mentality into normal and defence into own half while the other default tactics are ok. Next season you can buy camavinga and sell andré.
  21. Download Steam on your laptop/desktop and download Soccer Manager 21 from there.
  22. What I'm talking about is that actually playing a match, not just simming it. Sure, the game size would increase but that would be a very minor issue. SM could start small and just add the playability and then slowly start improving the graphics. If this was in the game it would destroy the best soccer games list on Play Store. I mean this is pretty big and SM is already burdened to add national teams, so it should add playablity as an update in january and make it a major update. Devs, if you notice this, please consider these ideas.
  23. You are right, the training system should also receive a rework. Player development plans should be introduced and, if they can, position change plans. Teams should receive cred for winning titles. For example:- I won the Bundensliga, DFB Pökal and Europa League with Bayer Leverkusen. Later I tried to sign Foden and Van de Beek but it showed it was unlikely for them to come to my club. Media interviews should come back and our responses should reflect on team morale.
  24. Everyone add replys and likes so that the Devs notice this. ⚽⚽⚽🏆🏆🏆
