Many people struggle and don't know how to increase some of their manager stat attributes, so I am going to explain a little bit about what sort of things you need to do to make certain ones improve. The manager stats are slit into six parts them being Ability to Handle Pressure, Ambition, Loyalty, Media Handling, Professionalism and Temperament. The way you handle you're players and Media comments can play a big role on which stats increase or in some cases decrease. Give the media a wrong comment and your media stat and some others may drop depending on what you say. But give them a correct answer and it will increase. Just a quick note though, every time you do one of the things below the stat does not increase every go or it would be very easy to have 20's for everything.
Increasing Ability to Handle Pressure Stat
Increasing this stat can be the hardest to do out of all the other stats. To increase this stat if the media say to you something along the line you "should win this match" then the reply you give can actually increase this stat. You should say something like “yes we can but we will have to be cautious" and then your ability to handle pressure stat will improve if you win this match. If you are a smaller club it is much easier and quicker to raise this stat as you often play teams who are much better than you, but when you're a big club you don't play too many better teams. Another way of increasing this stat is if you’re in a relegation battle and manage to stay up then the stat should rise again. There are a few more ways too but I just want to cover the basics to give you a slight indication for just now.
There is quite a few ways to increase this stat, one of them being to declare interest in a player who is better than you currently have. Remember to do it on a realistic player who might join your squad though, don’t be someone like Hereford and declare interest in Ronaldinho or the media won't take you serious and the media stat will drop. Another way of improving this stat is when the media ask you if you will get promoted etc if you reply yes you think you will then you are classed as ambitious and the Ambition stat should increase.
If you keep buying players and selling them season after season then your loyalty stat will be pretty non existent. If a player complains about not playing regular enough and then you tell him he will be given a chance and you start to play him the stat will rise again. When a player as a god game and you praise him your loyalty stat should increase too, but do it too often and they will think you praise too much so it won’t go up. If a club bids for one of your star players and you reject it and say you hope he will stay at the clubs also shows that you are pretty loyal and can cause your loyalty stat to rise again.
Increasing Media Handling
Every single response you give to the media effects this stat, you need to know how to reply to media questions for this stat to gain. The more you play down rumours and any arguments a manager might be trying to get you involved in if you say you don't want to get involved the stat will rise plus your professionalism should also. Praising other managers and your own players can also contribute on making this stat rise. There are plenty more too but I am not going to get into everything.
When a player complains about you to the press do you ignore his comments and deal with it privately or respond by saying something to the press and making the situation worse? The same can be said about another manager trying to unsettle you, if you play it calm and don't get drawn into a war of words then you will be seen as a very professional manager and the stat should increase. If you start mouthing off to the press then the stat will decrease.
Again this stat is also connected to the last two I wrote about, if you are a manager who likes to lash out to other players and rival managers then this stat is going to be relatively low. But on the other hand if you are more calm and relaxed manager and don't get drawn into a war of words then your temperament stat should be very high after a while.
As you can see a lot of stats are connected to each other and they all have a knock on effect on other stats. So before you comment to the media have a think and ask yourself if you are really bothered about the stats. If the answer is no then you can respond how you like, but if it does bother you then think first for a few moments about your response. Also remember there are plenty of other ways to increase these stats, these are just a few of the ways.
