If you’re going to be successful in your job, it’s imperative that you satisfy the demands of the Board and the Fans – and they can be quite demanding. The Confidence screen has six parts to it, all of which reflect a different facet of your management of the club. The Board and supporters will give you their current thoughts on your progress in competitions, your financial control, individual match feedback, your transfer activity and current squad, and an overall summary.
Confidence in your performances in these areas can be gauged by the bar displayed under each heading.
The bar displayed in the screenshot is a neutral opinion and is at the midway marker. As confidence in your performance grows, this bar will fill up towards the right end. If confidence disappears and people start questioning your actions, the bar will decrease towards the left. You naturally want to be aiming to have as much of every bar filled as possible.
Fan opinion will be presented to you by a spokesperson from a team supporters group. They are more concerned with the on-field product, whilst the Board are more concerned with the long term security of the club off the pitch, but will not ignore what happens on the pitch.
