EA really need to sort out alot regarding FIFA. Manager mode used to be something that had a fair bit of depth into it, but it's been stripped year after year of key features!
Here what I've noticed after under half a season.
Non existent. I've summed 18 games now and not one card is ever shown.
Why is this? I'm guessing it's not coded into the game?
Match day simulations -
Rarely does the ball go out for a throw in. Its a great 'addition' (I say this sarcastically of course as this was actually in FIFA 05 way back when) but its poorer than the old versions. Players never cross the ball in either when watching these. I can't even say its basic because the match day sims are missing so much!
Incorrect press statements -
Apparently 8 games in my Derby team were on a poor run of run. This run of form was us being unbeaten in the league and in the 3rd round of the cup.
Statements need to be correct.
Youth players -
I find it very frustrating that my youth player has a missing torso and hold a red card constantly. Ironic seeing a cards are apparently a thing of the past in the simulated matches....
Don't get me wrong, there's a few positives. I think the addition of swapping play positions and the development is players is great.
And training being 'added' (Again, something you could do on previous versions) helps add realism. But there's more missing then has been added.
Until the basic get rectified it's not great and never will be.
Id advise playing Football manager if you want a more realistic experience.
EA need to look at everything that had previously (i.e stadium and coaching development, money from sponsors, match realistic simulations) and add it back in.
