Football Manager 2023 Top Tips
Football Manager can be an overwhelming game at times, even for those that are lifelong fans of the franchise.
With new and detailed features added every year, we want to strip things back and help you with three simple tips that can improve your team's performance.
Getting a senior affiliate should be one of the first things you do in Football Manager 2023, especially if you're managing a lower-league team.
Partnering with a senior affiliate enables you to loan in talented youngsters without any hidden costs.
For instance, if you were in England's second tier and signed up Arsenal as a senior affiliate, you'd be able to take some of their young stars on loan - provided you were at the right level for their development - for free.
Affiliate clubs are also helpful if you're managing a major side, as it enables you to send out talented youngsters and give them the experience they need.
Find Your Voice
Touchline instructions can often be forgotten, but they can be key to turning the tide in a difficult match.
If your side is hammering down the door but isn't able to score that vital goal, offering words of praise or encouragement could give them that extra boost to get them over the line.
Berating your team can also prove useful, sparking an immediate reaction from your team.
Of course, team talks are key when feeding back to your squad, but touchline instructions are just as vital when it comes to motivating your players.
Embrace the Data Hub
The Data Hub was introduced in Football Manager 2022 and it will once again be a key feature in FM23.
The Data Hub will be expanded upon this year with new features arriving, but that doesn't mean it should scare you.
The Data Hub provides a great foundation for you to make informed decisions about your squad, assessing the pros and weaknesses of your tactical style.
The Data Hub will also enable you to make the best possible signings for your team, meaning you're not left to rue any expensive mistakes.
