Generic Managers

Please, please, please get rid of this in the next game. I'm pretty sure most people would either prefer the real manager, the ability to custom design one, or even no manager at all over these. It's so annoying to have to constantly watch cut scenes with these.

  • They literally gave us the use of Joachim Low and Stanislav Cherishev for a month or two to choose from in career mode and it literally changed my whole experience 10 fold. The cut scenes seeing Low celebrate a goal or even shaking hands with a player when being substituted was phenomenal. Now all the sudden they have taken it away again!!! I truly hope they introduce a few more international managers once the January window is over. It was actually the most realistic career mode I've ever played having these 2 real managers available to select. I stumbled on this by accident too!!

    It's telling that one of the best features was actually a bug.

    Surely this was not done by accident? I'm hoping if anything it was a trial feature for fifa20. I have seen people in the past say they had claude Puel and Slaven Bilic as well. Surely they could reintroduce the same bug and have managers like Mourinho or Wagner who are currently out of a job 😂
  • So another update came out this morning and theres a new blank face manager. I went in and it is some young bald manager. Not sure if this is just a new generic manager or if it is someone I just dont know?

    I went through my list of EPL, Ligue 1, La Liga managers and this guy doesn't look like any of them? :-/
    I wonder if he's any of the Bundesliga or one of the managers of the teams in Portuguese league?

    It just seemed random, he wasn't there last night but this morning my friend messaged me to let me know about the young bald manager (sort of a pep guardiola imposter?)
  • Hey all I have a question when will EA allow us make loaned players permanent also how do u get the young players to accept loan offers the idiots keep rejecting them

    To get loan players out you need about a 90/10 split in wages at least from my experience with FIFA 19

    Sadly I think it's just another Generic they gave us. Another new January transfers update just came out as well. Still have given us this bald generic guy. Your right though he looks like Pep. Or Leon Osman 😂 but I dont think hes a real manager which is a shame. I really hope they give us a few real managers again soon. Career mode was so much better with this option. Even using Stanislav Cherchesov was fun because you know, hes a real manager. Not a generic Morgan Freeman look a like or some old cross between Arsene Wenger & Claudio Ranieri looking guy.
  • @EA_Andy can you confirm if Joachim Low and Stanislav Cherchisov were glitches to be able to use as manager? Because this really was the best thing I have seen introduces in career mode in the last 5 years. People have been dying for the introduction and ability to use real managers.

    To respond your second question: When you have accepted a loan offer, go to the squad section and put the player on the transfer list. Then he will most likely accept the move. It is kind of stupid, but it works.

    Without being rude... who actually cares what the managers look like?

    Career mode is fundamentally broken not to mention the sub par game play and half of players seem to value aesthetics like boots and beards and face scans and managers. It's absolutely mental.

    We need a career mode that can accurately simulate the football world - differing and adaptive tactics and formations from opposition managers, vastly improved transfer systems, improved training, improved career movement (approaches from other clubs and availability of other jobs) etc etc. A watered down version of football manager's ecosystem with (better) fifa gameplay for matches.

    The game is fine aesthetically, it's everything else that let's it down.

    Why not have both? It's not like the same guys are working on both gameplay and face scans. Am I crazy to want good gameplay with good transfers, good tactics, a good career mode and more face scans and the abilitiy to either choose a real manager or create one like creating a new player?

    Seeing as though you spend half the time in the managers office negotiating players, contracts, ect. Its pretty important...

    Firstly, assuming 4 minute halves, a season in an English league will be around 400 minutes, depending on cup games etc. There is no way you spend that long is transfer negotiations. Surely we're all skipping those cut scenes where possible so they're taking a few minutes, if you signed 10 players a season you might spend 30 minutes seeing your manager close up.

    Secondly, it still baffles me that anyone would value that as important above the actual football ecosystem. I want a realistic transfer system before I worry about what my manager looks like, he could be a stickman for all I care.
