7 Tips for Football Manager Beginners

Here are 7 tips for Football Manager beginners, and some veterans of the game, to enhance the game experience.


If you have decided to try the game but maybe found out, it is too complicated and overwhelming for you, do read this article, in which we give you 7 tips to improve your Football Manager experience. 

The tips can be applied for beginners and for some of the veteran players as well.

1. How to Avoid Too Many Injuries


You started a save with your favourite team, signed some star players and the next thing you know they are out for the rest of the season due to an injury. Injuries can very be frustrating if you will not pay attention to the small details. 


To avoid injuries and reducing the chance for an injury to occur to one of your players, you need to pay attention to the Medical Centre tab. Inside the Medical Centre tab, you will see the risk assessment for your players, this will show you the chances for your players to get injured, if the match load and training workload is too high, make sure to rest the players and reduce the training workload. 

How to avoid injuries Football Manager
The fit team is the winning one, use the medical centre to avoid injuries.

Another way to avoid injuries is to sign the best physios and sports scientists that are available. In addition, on the training tab, there is an option to give your players rest, make sure to rest the players that are in danger to have an injury.

2. Complicated Team Instructions


One of the biggest mistakes that beginners make are complicated team instructions. Clicking on every button available is not recommended as you strict your players to very few options to do on the pitch. 

Team Instructions Football Manager
Learn about team instructions.

Learn how team instruction influences your team and in which way you want the players to play, so if you play possession style football, going more direct passing and the extremely high tempo is no the way to go. Try to keep your tactics simple and effective.

3. Responsibilities


For the new players that have been overwhelmed by how in dept the game is, don’t worry. Football Manager gives you the option to delegate most of your responsibilities

Delegate most of your responsibilities
Delegate responsibilities you do not want to deal with to your staff.

You can leave the training for your assistant manager to do or if you are not bothered about the press conferences, just let your assistant manager or one of the other staff members to do.

4. Team Morale


Team Morale can massively influence your team performance, if your team morale is low, the team will play badly with no passion. You can use the Dynamics tab to track your team morale and the dressing room atmosphere. 

Moral Boost
Quickly improve player moral with private chats.

If you notice the morale is low, you can make a team meeting and try to boost their confidence. Individual player praising is another option for boosting morale and performance on the pitch.

5. Scouting


Scouting and recruiting the right players can make or break your save. Try to learn how to use the scouting system on Football Manager, it is very easy and can improve your team massively. 

Setting up scout assignments
Set up your own scouting assignments for the scouts. 

Using the scouting system correctly gives you the chance to find first the best wonderkids in your save and buy them before any other team have the opportunity to snatch them up before you.

6. Training


You have probably clicked on the training tab and had no idea what to do, try to understand how training works on Football Manager as you can tweak it for your own preferences and how you want your team to play. 

Training Settings Football Manager
