If you’re just starting out on your journey to the top of the footballing world then here are some quick tips to help you hit the ground running.
When choosing your first team to manage, it’s best to start out with one of football’s bigger clubs who are well placed to challenge for silverware. You’ll have a bigger transfer budget and a larger backroom team at your disposal who can help you get to grips with the core areas of football management
Use one of the Tactical Style presets when setting up your first tactic. There are plenty to choose from and they’re modelled on the same playing styles used by the top teams from the real world, making it quick and easy to play like football’s best.
Don’t be afraid to delegate tasks to your staff. Although you’re the manager, you should prioritise the areas of management that you want to be most involved in. So, if you want to spend your time working the transfer market and playing matches then let your staff handle the other elements such as speaking to the media and organising training sessions.
Use your scouting team to identify players who can take your squad to the next level. Your scouts will report on potential signings, but you can also specify the types of players that you want them to evaluate by changing your Scouting Focus in the Scouting Centre.
Work with your coaches to make the right in-match decisions. During each match, your staff will recommend tactical tweaks, substitutions and opposition instructions that can help turn the game in your favour. Whilst you’re getting to grips with matchdays, listen to their feedback and suggested changes. Actioning their advice is easy and can be done at the click of a button.
If you’re an experienced manager returning for another spell in the hotseat then you’ll find a wealth of new features at your disposal in both FM22 and FM22 Xbox. The most detailed data analysis, in the form of the new Data Hub, helps power your pre-match planning and post-match evaluation while a new animation engine and a wealth of AI improvements create the best matchday spectacle in the series to date. That’s alongside a revamped Transfer Deadline Day experience that brings the rumour, suspense and chaos of one of the most dramatic fixtures in the football calendar to life.
