Some more Data Hub goodness from FM22

What new features have been announced?

Data Hub

One of the biggest improvements in Football Manager 2022 will be the addition of the Data Hub. The Data Hub will enable you to digest data that has been gathered by your team of Data Analysts, in a way that anyone can understand.

Wide Centre-Back

The main job of the Wide Centre-Back is to stop the opposing attackers from playing and to clear the ball from danger when required. However, unlike standard central defenders, the Wide Centre-Back is encouraged to stay wide in possession and support the midfield more like a fullback. You can learn more about the role here.

Revamped Deadline Day

The deadline day experience will be revamped. We wrote about it here

You can find the system requirements here. They are very much similar to the previous two editions so you shouldn't need to worry too much about upgrading ASAP.
