After asking players to put requests on the official boards, Gerald Köhler and his FM07 team decided to do a first on the long roll of EA Sports title: an expansion.
Amongst the leading features, the player can now start his career like many managers do: both inside the field and on the sidelines, as the player-manager. Several new screens present the player with additional data before and after key moments of the season, including the "Ups & Downs", where the player's ratings are re-evaluated according to his performance during the whole season. More statistics are presented to the player so that the player can decide what and when to do more easily.
On the 3D engine side, new stadiums were added and matches can now be played on snow.
