  1. Hello,

    I would like there to be added records on the game where you can beat previous top scorers for the club and it shows when your playing in a game or on the menu also the same to beat clean sheets in a row, or assists for the club, appearances for the club too, say if I brought mbappe fir Liverpool it will show when I’m getting close to a top scorer for the club

  2. I wish there was a ‘Real Face’ criteria for scouting so that you could find young players/average players to be backup for first team positions

  3. Fifa 20 career mode-

    Ability to invest in a bigger stadium. See the progression of the stadium built throughout the season

    Negotiate sponsorships- then put on training kits/billboards at home games

    See the overall rating of a player without having to scout him

    unlock classic kits

  4. I would love the option in career mode if you could choose your starting season. Lets say I want to play with Man Utd when they first got Ronaldo, then I could watch Ronaldo and Rooney play from the time they are young and grow to the worlds best. I would love to play with some older sides in career mode.

  5. FIFA, please fix the national teams for Career Mode. Anytime I play with any national team in any big tournament or even a friendly there are so many different errors that occur. First off, the line-ups never seem to appear on screen. It never shows the starting line-ups for either team. Secondly, it also never plays the nationals of any national team anthems before the game actually starts. Thirdly, anytime I score or the opponents score a goal, the players never celebrate with the person that scored. Instead what happens is every player but the goal scorer just casually walk towards the halfway line and never celebrate.
    These things happen in Career Mode whenever I play with the national teams. Many other friends also experience this when playing with national teams in Career Mode. Hope EA can fix this ASAP!

  6. I have a few so here it goes …

    1: Player Mentoring … they had it in a previous FIFA though you could have the older players mentor the young players – Ibra helped Rashford’s shooting while at United – so why cant you do that in game! Have a certain position or skill eg Attack Position that you want them to help with and the younger payer will grow those attributes faster depending on how good the older player’s stats are – For example as Muller has ATT POS of 90, the younger player would grow his faster than if a player like Rashford whose ATT POS is 84.

    2: Youth Teams!!!! The young players that you scout can go into the reserve or youth teams and still get game time – even mentoring a young prospect with a senior player would help in the growth and experience. Youth team coaches can have stars like scouts – they can have also what type of personality they have/specialites like attacking, mentality, technical etc

    3: When taking a goal kick the keeper should move when youre trying to find a player – just more realistic

    4: Youth scouting needs to change because it is too easy to find gems and thats all people look for. Dont have a potential range showing though have comments from scouts about how they play and what the scouts opinions are – eg: need to sign as he will be a world beater (could turn into a dud) or is average though a great work rate (and could become amazing) – can get opinions of other coaches to confirm if they agree or not

    5: Assistant coaches/coaching staff – be able to create your own backroom staff and buy staff off clubs – United buying the physio from USA – makes it more realistic and if you get the right ones in then the players imrpove more – similar to the happiness rating

    6: LIFETIME STATS AND CLUB LEGEND RECORDS!!!! Players like Messi are breaking all sorts of records for club and country even competitions so why not have that in game too – even marking milestones such as 100 apperances or 100 goals for the club etc and how they rank against the club greats. Even being able to have the option of having a trophy or plaque for their achievements would be great too. All these stats should transfer throughout the career mode and even when players change clubs their records should still stay and be able to see their records when youre scouting them/buying them. Especially league milestones should stick when you buy/sell players and their stats reflect them. Im sick of the stats changing every season and even when players are out on loan (which how damn often are they!!) you cant see their stats unless its within the competitions of the league that youre in

    Just a couple there and ones that would make career mode SO much better

    1. Just adding to this – the club should have a techincal director …
      You should still have scouts etc and then you give a list of players that you want to the director who goes out and tries to get them – give an alternative if that player is unavailable. Rate how important that player is to your plans and even get into the act by helping the director with negotiations/discussions with the player to convince them to sign

      Also if there is a player that you like that wont come to the club you should be able to ask the scouts to search for a player with similar stats and work rate etc – if you cannot buy Jadon Sancho then then scouts can find someone similar for you

  7. I may not win if a team like Rao and Yakano second season in the first league with such ease There is no desire to play in the ultimate level career so easily wins and if a weak team does not make sense that I beat Barcelona 4-0

  8. A chance to save your search list – transfer hub on career mode. So you don’t have to do it all over again on a new career.

  9. So what i dislike right now in 19 is the fact whene you enter a managermode and choose a player you wanna use (lets say you pick for an example Iker Casillas/Iniesta) and you retire him he’s face becomes generic which really destroys the whole idea. It would be nice if the faces would stay the same that way you’d be able to pick alot of the elder players like Thiago Silva, Vincent Kompany, Pepe Reina, Iker Casillas, Iniesta, Javier Mascherano, Wayne Rooney, David Villa, Carlos Tévez, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Fabrizio Coloccini, Darren Fletcher, Gianluigi Buffon etc as coaches. Also, It would be nice being able to pick current managers. And it would be nice having a list of some retired legendary players with real faces. (Romário, Ronaldinho, Edgar Davids, Clarence Seedorf, Paolo Maldini, Alessandro Del Piero, Alessandro Nesta, David Beckham, Luis Figo, Fabio Cannavaro, Xavi, Steven Gerrard, Roberto Carlos, Carles Puyol, Roy Keane, Frank Rijkaard, Ruud Gullit, Hernan Crespo, Claude Makelele, Raúl, Xabi Alonso, Francesco Totti, Philipp Lahm, Kaka, Juan Roman Riquelme, Dimitar Berbatov etc.)

  10. Hi would like too see the change of camera angle back for when your in fifa ultimate team when the goalkeeper takes the kicks up field so you can see where too pass the ball with the best options too yourself

  11. Hi there

    I have been playing fifa since fifa 12.

    These are my wishlist in career mode:
    1. Have option to upgrade stadium (seating capacity, facilities, merchants, food stalls, training centre, physio centre, gym) in which will affect potential of players or speed up recovery from injuries. Or it will affect attendance with better facilities. And stadium upgrade you can see it in the gameplay with more seats or bigger lights etc.

    2. Have option to choose sponsorship deals which will be reflected on the kit. Different sponsorship affects your budget for the season

    3. And for those that play fifa for a long season (I average about 7-8 seasons) per club. I would love to see each player has career stats like number of goals for their whole career or number of apps for their whole career. Not just a season. It tallies up.

    4. I want to see more detailed in game stats like number of touches, number of blocks, number of aerial won, number of tackles, number of interceptions, etc also for the players’ whole entire career life not just a season. It is great to know these before buying a player. Great stats player should not necessarily mean they always perform. In real life, Pogba is an example. High stats but could perform average when compared to Vardy. And would be great to have these stats comparable to other players.

    5. Also to see each players’ career in terms of which clubs and how many apps and how many goals they have registered in their career life

    That’s all for now 🙂

  12. I would really like to submit my comment as in relation to FIFA career mode. I would love it if you would add an option for terminating a contract in career mode so that a player can become a free agent and look for a team a team or receive new contract offers from other teams.

    Thank you in advance

  13. i would love it if a player is allowed to suggest a team that they would love to play for hence, giving the actual team the opportunity to look at the player and choose weather to offer a contract or not for instance the neymar jr. the player wanted to originally wanted to play for bacelona(2019) again and gave his former team a lead on the interest the player has to reunite with them.

    my query is for the player career mode thanks in anticipation ncb101 out of here.

  14. I am interested that game allows to change the commentary team for every game,
    Because Playing with only one commentary team voices will become boring and repetitive after a while .
    I’m interested able to change the game commentary team for every games from Martin Tyler to Derek Rae and conversly like fifa 14

  15. Please make the career mode more realistic
    For example make the news and events and player forms and development more realistic and more involved with in the results and stats of the matches and make more details and hype about individual awards for players and add more hype and detail into the world cup games of the career mode and please add press conferences AND THE ABILITY TO UPDATE OR CREATE KITS

  16. Yes, there should be a career mode or it is (the game) based on football career. It is very good idea to play with your own name. In different leagues in the world . It can be online or offline it doesn’t matter but it should be in fifa 20.

  17. Manager Mode

    Let me haggle for more/less money based on expectations. If I ask for more money, I have greater expectations to meet, and have greater chance of being fired. Furthermore, let me use my prestige/accomplishments as ways to haggle for more money.

    Fan Relationships/Press Conferences/Ticket Prices
    Give me ways to interact with my fan base. Let me raise/lower ticket prices based on my popularity and team performance and attendance. This should also correspond with each club’s popularity and average club attendance. In other words, I should see the demand for ticket prices and total percent tickets sold. For instance, if I’m at 100% attendance, I can raise prices or even ask ownership to upgrade stadium. Whereas, if I’m at 50%, I’m losing money and will need to lower ticket prices to get butts back in seats.

    On loans, please let me discuss that players playing time and I want to see some players improve from a loan. Also, let me court players/agents inside/outside the window to build my relationship with them so they will want to sign for me.

    press/Ownership/Board Meetings
    Not only should there be press conferences, but I should have regular board/ownership meetings to discuss performance. This should impact if I get fired, if I get more money, if I can ask for upgrades, etc.

    Game mgmt:
    Before every game, I should have a team talk. At halftime, there should be another locker room talk. And there should be a post game talk.

    Player positions
    Give me an individual rating for a player on every position on the field. The more I play him there, especially if he’s in good form, the higher his rating is there. Ultimately, the player’s primary position is where his best rating is. So, if say, Messi is listed as a RW but I always play him at LW, therefore, is LW surpasses his RW, he then becomes a LW.


    Although, I love club soccer. International soccer will always be my first love. And, Career Mode completely neglects the international manager.

    My recommendations….

    1. Let you start off IMMEDIATELY with your international team of choice. Right at the start, as you are making your profile for the Manager, with name and all… ASK: do you want to play international? yes or No. if Yes, let you pick from there which nation you want to start with. I don’t want to save/reload 300x until I finally get my team. Just let me go ahead and start with them.

    2. Create a REALISTIC schedule. Include the WC Qualifiers and so forth. Maybe add the Copa Americas, Gold Cup, UEFA, etc, or at least some made up version of that. Maybe also allow me to pick who I want to play friendlies against. Or have some say in it.

    3. Add Youth Teams. Include u23 and u20 and maybe u17.

    4. Allow me a way to keep track of my player pool and their progress throughout the season. For instance, are they playing with their club team? What do I expect them to work on, and so forth. Allow me to talk to them.

    5. Include dual-nationality. For instance, a guy who isn’t cap tied but is eligible for more than one nation. Allow me to try and enter talks with him.

    6. Make the international performance impact my prestige rating as a manager.

  19. Youth Teams and Youth Scouting

    Personally, I find most exciting about Career Mode is bringing up young players into stars. Therefore, there needs to be Youth Teams included where the Club’s youth teams are included.

    Furthermore, as the Manager, I want to be involved with what’s going on; or at least have the option to do so.

    On Youth Scouting for created players…

    I’d like to see a total revamp.

    One, please stop giving every player the same name. It shouldn’t be hard to come up with some variations of top 100 first names and surnames of every country and make that formula. Simply, I’d like to see a little more realism in this department.

    Two, once or twice in a season or maybe throughout the season, there needs to be something akin to a global “Free Agent” list of potential players to recruit for the academy. Based on a club’s youth scout, the club will have better access to the premier youth players. On this point, it should be easier to sign domestic players to make it feel more of a “homegrown” feel to it. But there should be opportunity to sign international players, especially based on a club’s prestige level and reputation for developing young talent. Likewise, based on my the level of my scout, it should be easier to sign to sign the best prospects.

    Third, I would say that these created players can be in types of player categories, for instance, playmaker, speedster (please add a feature to look for players with speed), defender, etc. Which, they develop their stats when they’re signed. Yet, the main feature is based on a 5 star rating system (kind of like college football). For a 5 star recruit, these would be your kids who project to be global superstars (88-94 rating), 4 stars project is your elite prospects (85-90 rating), 3 stars your very good prospects (80-85 rating), 2 stars your above average prospects (70-85 rating), and 1 Star (60-80 rating). It should be hard to get 5 star recruits unless I really pay into that system; which once I do get 4-5 star recruits, these should be guys who really make an impact on my team and I feel pressured to play them, even if they’re still raw.

    Like any other game, ultimately, I want to become my character. My character in Career Mode is the Manager. So, we need personality and skill development. In the start, I’d like to see each manager given X amount of points (varies based on difficulty), that they can ‘level up’ with good performances, good press conferences, and so forth.

    Able to have better results on simulation. Also, impacts player’s chances of injuries. Also, negatively impacts opponents game readiness. And, reduces chance of tougher scheduling.

    Able to rotate and use players outside of their primary position with less chance of negative impact on player’s performance.

    Able to find buyers and loans for players, and attract better bids. Also, able to beat out bids from other teams when purchasing a player.

    Able to gather more information on players outside of club. And improve likelihood of finding top youth talents for youth academy.

    Talent Evaluation
    Able to better determine a player’s potential and decline. Also, improves youth scouting and chances of identifying top youth talent before their market value skyrockets.

    Able to earn recognition from players, fans, and owners, and improves chances that players, fans, and owners will become less frustrated with bad results. Note: Automatically increases or decreases with results. Also, certain clubs require certain prestige to start.

    Organizational Relationship
    Able to improve relationship with organization which impacts negotiations with performance evaluations, budgeting, and requests for upgrades.

    Quick Study
    Able to more quickly advance coaching skills.

    +Better/more involved press conferences
    +Youth/Reserve Teams
    +Start out with preferred international team
    +Drastically improve international mode… add WC Qualifying, friendlies, Able to follow/talk with players, press conferences, youth teams, etc
    +Improve the Loan system. Players should actually improve on loans.
    +I would love it if FIFA would include the USL. It could even add a promotion/relegation within MLS.
    +Drastically improve the created players with a little bit of story behind them. Also, please stop naming them all the same. Ideally this should be done like a “Free Agent” list at the start of each season where you compete to sign the best youth players to your academy. And you want to have a good scout who will tell you who are the best prospects.

    Ultimately, please make Career Mode more fun. In truth, the match gameplay is fine with FIFA. But I have grown so bored with everything outside of the gameplay that it is no longer fun to play the game. Career Mode is the only thing I play, and I would like to see some drastic improvements made to make this feel much more dynamic, realistic, and fun experience.

  21. Estaría FASCINADO si pudiera poner el modo carrera offline multiplayer…dentro de la misma carrera 2 o mas jugadores, que cada uno pueda elegir una liga y equipo que quiera y que las otras personas hagan lo mismo…por lo menos acá en Argentina todo el mundo desea esa modalidad en el juego desde hace ya varios años y nunca lo toman en cuenta…por favor créanme que si lo hacen y ponen esa modalidad de juego van a crecer MUCHÍSIMO no solo en argentina si no en todo el mundo…hoy en día hay mas fanatismo en el modo offline que en el modo online, desde ya muchas gracias y espero una contestación algún día

  22. So easy… and Simple:
    1) In both manager and player modes: limited years of contract (from 1 to 5 years) – possibility or not to negotiate according to club interest and player. Manager or Player can leave 6 months before contract ends.
    2) Possibility to Change player position! From RM to RB after individual training with some weeks duration! From DC to MDC, from MDC to MC, etc… According to player’s attributes – should be easier for some players to achieve it or more difficult.
    3) Please create Youth teams! U23 & U19 leagues with national squads as well! Just a hint: João Félix transfer was 120M and he wasn’t considered at the beginning of Fifa19. Wake up! Let US start from that point also if we want (from the Youth teams)
    4) In Player carreer mode – let me have a margin to select my strengths and lower my weak aspects of my game – like it is now a lot of players start with the same attributes… And please let US start with 15/16 years old.
    5) Manager and Player Carreer mode – stop irrealistic transfers! Messi doesn’t want to play on Sport Lisboa e Benfica! Marcus Rashford won’t come to Benfica at the 1st season just because I have the Money! He can come on future seasons… If he doesn’t play at his club or if Benfica was 2 Times on the he Champions League final and Man Utd was weak on the last couple of years as an example…
    6) create something similar you did with Hunter In terms os personal life style – for the player and manager. Buy an appartment, a car, a cellphone, clothes, favourite people, Numbers of fans… All influenced by what you achieve and how you achieve it. Are you arrogant, selfish, good samaritano or Nice?
    7) the transfer option! My God! Can’t I loan a player and play an obligatory/optional clause at the end to buy him? Or vice-versa? So many aspects of real life business you forgot to had into the game.
    8) The most stupid “feature” In FiFa – I almost forgot – In player carreer mode I can ONLY be on the start 11 or not called to the match at all. So… The emotion of starting at the bench – going on and help my team doesn’t exist In football… Sorry – doesn’t exist In FIFA!!!! Such a stupid bug… Sorry… FEATURE …

    Don’t take me wrong but I play Fifa since ’94 and I’m still waiting for a “real” game. Please… At least the years of contract for player/manager must be set…
    Ultimate team os nothing to me. Its a pitty that you waste precious time on that mode, mainly because you don’t carro about who Started playing this game since the beginning. I imagine ‘Lil Pumps’ deveolping it. Só Nice to have “pink” hair… Come on… Really? Was that the importante add you were working on? Pleaseeeeeee….
