Gather 'round Football Manager players, and lets have a moan about some of the tiny elements of the best game in the history of the universe that piss us off a little bit.
Whether you just dabble in the occasional career or year after year you lose contact with friends and family as you become immersed in the game, you will have come across a few of these incredibly annoying little details.
Having played through our fair share of careers in leagues from all over the World, we can confirm that these everyday struggles are the types of things that make you quit without saving.
Misleading headlines that give you a heart-attack.
The ungrateful little shits that you have to put up with.
So much for trying to be supportive you little bollocks.
The post game stats rubbing salt into the wounds.
And you have to sit there and watch them as you wait for the menu to load.
The most ridiculous training ground injuries to your star players.
He fell over a cone? Should we have him mentally tested?
The board insisting on a confidence meeting because you sold a 15 year old with no senior appearances and your star player thinks it's an outrage.
Being unable to call up a player for Internationals due to injury, then forgetting to put him in the next squad.
More often than not this results in making the player furious because you forgot about him, and sometimes international retirement follows. It's not fun.
Players missing training for utterly stupid reasons.
Alright lads, who brought the 15 year old to the night club?
The board never fulfilling your perfectly reasonable requests.
I can't work under these conditions!
The flu ravaging your squad.
I know footballers are soft, but 3 years?
Your players being unable to follow even the most basic of orders.
Absolutely everything to do with work permits.
What monsters do they put on that panel?
It feels better to air our grievances out there for everyone to see. Special thanks to the r/footballmanagergames community for providing some of the screenshots.
