you can probably play a season without having to play the career mode.. plus you can create your own tournaments as well.. so if you don't want to start from the bottom don't play the career mode... but it makes sense that if you're a new manager you will not be able to train the top teams right away.

Yes, but just playing a season and playing a career are two totally different things obviously. It says on the website "build the greatest dynasty." I want to build the greatest dynasty with my favorite teams, not some 3rd division team I've never even seen play. Look, like I said before, it sounds cool in some ways, and I would do it, but what's wrong with having the option to start with whomever you want. No one can give a reason why, because there isn't one. And new managers do sometimes start with the big boys... Quieroz?

Queiroz was already an assistant coach at Man U.

Assistant being the operative word there. I mean we are talking about a video game here. Since we don't have the option to do so, we can use our imaginations a bit and say that you could have been an assistant before. I mean managers don't just fall from the sky, or do they?

i agree.

if ea really wanted to make it they way they (supposedly) did

they could at least make it an unlockable at the ea store.
or you could play as whatever team once you finish normal carreer mode...

If it is gonna be the way that it is, then I am hoping that you receive multiple job offers after each season. Not just one. This was a problem with NCAA Football Dynasty Mode that took a couple of years to fix. Great managers receive several offers each year, including offers that are unspoken, like obviously Arsene Wenger could have any job he wanted in the world right now.
In NCAA, once you reach a level of prestige, you can quit your current job and move to a lower prestige team (say you have 5-star manager prestige, you can quit and move to any 4-star team). Team prestige and manager prestige are different entities.

Will is an unknown quantity at this point
Does any one know whether throughout the career players will retire and new ones will appear or will you be stuck with the same sqaud for the full 15 years?

Players will retire and new ones will be generated, although there hasn't been an explanation on how you will get the new players for your squad.

Probably the attributes and the age will be set and you create the rest.

Well you will certainly be able to edit their gear, but I'm not sure about anything else. But I was more talking about how we will get them for our squad. Will they automatically be placed on our team, like they are coming from our youth team, or will we have to buy them from some sort of free agent pool? Or both?

Maybe an option called like "Call from the young team", or something of the sort.

they even said the commentators would mention more specific things in carreer mode like new signing injuries and stuff

Not as worried anymore after watching the producer diary 4, He talked about career mode for a little bit and he never once specified that you MUST start with a lower division team, this is a good sign but its not set in stone I'm still pretty worried...
