Has anyone else noticed that sometimes the game throws up unrealistic manager changes?

In mine I've had two notable ones recently. Firstly Wenger moved from Arsenal to Porto. In real life Wenger would never make a move like that. And Porto are 12th and Arsenal 5th. It doesn't make any sense.

Then we've got Steve Cotterill leaving Portsmouth in 15th in the Championship to join Sheffield United who were 22nd when he took over!

How does this work?

So now we have Mancini managing Arsenal, Redknapp managing Man City and Shearer managing Spurs!

In one, I got to 2013 on one save, and John Terry retired (he had a massive injury) and he went on to manage Spurs lol!

Yeah some of these manager transfers are silly, hopefully this is fixed in patch 11.3 or FM 2012.

On one of my saves in 2012 Everton finished 5th and Aston Villa got relegated in 19th position. David Moyes took the Villa post.

Exactly. That would never happen in real life. Most of the game is fine for realism and that I just don't get how this bit can go so wrong some times. It's not a major problem it just bugged me when I saw it all changing around unrealistically.

Same here. Whenever Mancini leaves it always seems to he Harry that takes over. That one is kind of understandable partially but then again partially not with what he's done with Spurs.

unrealistic team form bugs me aswell. chelsea are 17th in my second season after 15 games. highly unlikely they will be in that position fifteen games into next season in real life.

How are any of those guys experienced enough to have those jobs? It would never happen!
