Football Manager 2024 shouts explained

Once the match begins, the pre-match talk will be left behind, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be able to send messages to your players during the game. As a manager, you can make substitutions, tactical changes, and give specific instructions to your players, but few things will have as much impact as the shouts.

From the sidelines, you can shout to the entire team or specific players with the aim of cheering them on, motivating them, or expressing your dissatisfaction with their performances. Like team talks, these shouts will result in a player o team reaction that will affect their performance.

In previous editions of Football Manager, the referee could eject you if you constantly shouted during the match; however, this feature has been removed. Nonetheless, you can’t be shouting throughout the entire game, as after each shout you will have a cooldown period of a few seconds.

That’s why we recommend giving positive messages with the aim of motivating your players before entering the field. Also, during halftime, if you see that a player hasn’t performed well, it’s always beneficial to offer some words of encouragement to play without pressure and give their best.

On the other hand, on the field, it doesn’t hurt to demand a bit more from the players to achieve the result, ask for calm when a goal is scored, or encourage the team when they concede one.
