<h2>FM 2009 Feature Roundup</h2>
<p>The videos to the left give us the first look at the brand new Football Manager 2009 (FM 2009) by Sports Interactive & SEGA. From the trailers some of the cool new features we can see are:</p>
<ul>
<li><strong>3D Pitch</strong> - The pitch is now in 3D but not a over the top FIFA/Pro Evo style but a much smaller scale tactical view. It is still a work in progress though and may change before new release. The match engine has been in development for 3 years with the support of Japan's Virtua Striker team. For those who don't like change the 2D view will still be available.
<li><strong>Full Match Timeline</strong> - There is now a timeline on display during a match which will enable the user to click on a certain key incident and quickly view it on the 3D match engine. This is very similar to the feature that is in Football Manager Live.</li>
<li><strong>Widgets</strong> - During a match you will be able to pick which 'Widgets' you want to display such as Player Ratings, Match Stats, Live Scores etc....</li>
<li><strong>Updated Skin</strong> - The look of the skin has been changed slightly with a few more features added for better user accessibility.</li>
<li><strong>Assistant Manager Feedback</strong> - Tactical & Motivational feedback during matches to help you see what you are doing right and more importantly what you are doing wrong.</li>
<li><strong>Press Conferences</strong> - Before and after matches and when you take a new job. These will play a key role and the answers you choose to the questions may come back to haunt you later in your managerial career.</li>
<li><strong>Training</strong> - More specific training on learning new 'Special Moves'. So players can now learn to do stepovers etc.. Very useful feature to help train youngsters up.</li>
<li><strong>Female Managers</strong> - No explanation needed, pointless feature.</li>
<li><strong>Widescreen Support</strong> - The game will now be able to work on those nice new widescreen monitors that you should all have. Gone are the days of 1024 x 768.</li>
<li><strong>Transfer System Overhaul</strong> - Complete overhaul of the whole system so it will now be much more realistic.</li>

</ul> </div>

Yeah the 3D pitch definitely looks much better thn I was expecting. The news conferences look pretty cool aswell, can't wait for it to come out now. More than I was expecting I gotta admit, wp SI.

He mentioned improved transfer rumours too. So hopefully there's a separate page for all that now instead of clogging your news stream up with pointless links to every single player on your shortlist.

*edit* Allowing players to actually train preferred moves is pretty nice too. Was sick of having to make my youngsters learn from people just so they could get one.

I like the idea of better feedback from your assistant, especially tactical feedback. Press conferences is a good idea aswell. Female managers is the most pointless thing ever, at best like one women will play FM I think.

I like the 3d match engine, lets see if it is actually any good.
Press conferences - I'm surprised they have waited this long to put them in

Yeah match engine looks good, press conferences looking very interesting but i guess they will get as boring as the usual press comments unless they have a HUGE list of questions randomly spurted up.

the 3d engine looks fantasic and thats 50% done. I want to know if they have ditched arrows. I like the idea of making players learn skills and the press idea will get annoying after a while i think.

Rumours sound fun and like Greg said the new way transfers work will have to be seen.

How have they changed the transfers anyone know?

I would like it if you are a national coach, you can ask a player who is considering citizenship to hurry up and make up their minds

I hope they have something where you can choose your kit sponsor, that would be a bit of a novelty addition but something i would like. Ah well. Not long to wait now.
