Making sure player morale remains high is vital for success on Football Manager. Even if your players are not too good, you will be very surprised in some instance how well some players can play with high morale.
Praising with good training - If you notice any green arrows on your player attributes, that means they are performing well in training. Without fail on the first of every month when I get the training report, I always make sure to praise the players who are training well. This always ends up with the players getting a morale boost, especially for younger players who are training well.
Praise good performances - As a general rule of thumb any players who has an average rating of over 7.80, I will look to praise them after a good match performance. You don't want to do this too often and if you get a bad reaction from a player after praising his match performance, then you might want to consider praising him again. Generally though most players react well if you praise them after playing well. I do tend to praise players if they have scored a goal during a match or if they have made a number of key passes. Like I have mentioned before, if you praise a player and they do not react well then I would not try it again.

Ask the player for any recommended signings - This usually works better for players who are not from the country you are managing in but usually, maybe every 2-3 months, I will go through my foreign players and see if they can recommend either a players or a staff member who I might be able to sign. Most of the time the player will not put any names forward, but it is always good if they do as this will generally boost the players morale. If they don't give any names then their morale will not be effected, its just if they recommend someone that you can see a boost in player morale.
Team talks - On your squad overview you do have the option of holding a team meeting, I have been using this a lot more recently than I used to. If your team is playing well or not as expected then you can use the team talks to try and change your whole teams morale. Just remember though if you get this wrong you could end up upsetting your whole team rather than just one player, so you need to be very careful with doing this. My general approach is if my team is not playing too well, then I try to say we have good enough ability in the team to change things and make things work OK again. If we are playing well, then generally I just need to praise them for playing well.
Which ever type of interaction you have with your players, its important to be consistent. You need to remember that having high player morale is vital for the success of your team, so its very important to get it right.
