Football Manager 2012
Control every one of your club’s aspects
Football Manager 2012 lets you direct any team from 50 countries all over the world, including the most popular European leagues. It means that it´s very likely that you’ll find your favorite team and can fulfill your dream of perfectly managing it.
In your role as coach you’ll have to decide about the player setup: who the official players will be, who will be the replacements and what tactics to use in each match. But your role doesn’t finish at the starting whistle sound. You’ll be at the side of the field, observing live how the game gets along and giving instructions, handling replacements and ensuring that your team gives its very best. Your strategy and reaction speed may spell the difference between victory and defeat, so you have to pay attention carefully.
When the match is over, your work continues, for a club’s success or failure depends on much more than the results of a match. Football Manager 2012 lets you handle absolutely everything related to the team, with total freedom. Apart from scheduling training sessions and getting ready for the next date, you’ll have to define your strategy.
Handle the relations with your players
You’ll be able to buy and trade players, but watch out the budget. Perhaps instead of spending millions in a star front player you might be better off concentrating on finding and training new talents from the club’s school. In Football Manager 2012 you’ll be in charge of reviewing contracts and carrying out negotiations, both with football players and with the directors of other teams.
It´s your duty as a coach to give motivating talks before every match and during the training. Football Manager 2012 lets you control these conversations and lets you decide on the tone. You can be friendly and lenient and your team will like you, but this might reduce their performance. If on the other hand you are strict and severe, you can get ill feelings from more than one player. Will you be everyone’s friend, listening to their problems? Or will you get angry with them for not leaving their problems out of the playing field, as they should?
Your relationship with your players is very important, since it can influence the general atmosphere within the team. A disgruntled player might not give his best, and might even leave the club as soon as he gets a better offer.
