View Full Version : How many times have you managed the same club?

Question is in the title really.

I keep managing Saints and failing. Keep going back to them as a new game but always failing.

What are your thoughts/experiences of this? Do you buy the same players, same tactics etc...

I will always manage Norwich City Football Club and it is different every time. But most of the time I fail miserably

I always have a few different games with Wycombe on the go at a time, with differing results. Sometimes i play with real players, sometimes i don't.

I usually play long term games, so never.. The only case has been RM, because since latest update they are totally different team :D

I don't think i've ever played as the same team in the same version of FM. I will always do a game with Ajax on every new version i play but couldn't restart as them on the same version. I think i would always get confused at players i thought i had signed/sold from a previous go.

Chelsea, most of the time, three or four time on 09. first time that I've actually had success so far...

I have been the Saints a lot as well, as i am obv a big fan! I reckon i have been them at least 8 0r 9 times. (a lot i know) Good thing is in my last save I won the championship. (by the way i highly recommend Stephen Appiah on a free transfer as he works well with Scheiderlin!! and get David Edgar on loan!!)

Must have managed Lyon so many times, If I'm doing another Lyon save on the same FM I always change it, draw up a rule set like only French players signed or I can only sign French youngsters and so forth.

Always Ajax. Every single version of the game. I'll only be another club in the last few months in the run up to FM10 when im starting to get a little bored.

Never, which is very peculiar come to think of it. But then I always start unemployed, skip a year and see where the wind takes me.

Ive managed Salgaocar alot in India and after about 20 years only won the league once

03-07-2009, 13:52
I've managed Wigan and United quite a few times, but I've never been able to stick to save with either of them. I usually go for long term career games starting unemployed so it's random who I manage.

03-07-2009, 15:13
Arsenal. Always. I probably start 10 games a year, 6 or 7 of them with arsenal. Every year i start one as Monaco or Barca, so i do get a change occassionaly.

03-07-2009, 15:36
I always do a few Sunderland games am currently in 2021 at the moment but havent really played it for awhile.

03-07-2009, 15:41
I've never been the same team twice, I always start in as a low a league as possible and work my way up, hate playing as big teams.

03-07-2009, 15:45
I always manage Doncaster Rovers in my first career game on any new FM but I don't normally start a new game with a club I've already used on the same FM.

Arsenal are the only time I've managed in FM09 for any substantial amount of time. Have had quite a few saves with them. My last one was very good, got to 2012 or 2013 and had the likes of messi, kaka, sergio ramos and many others in my side. Wanted a challenge though so I started a new game with Blackburn but only lasted a little while as I wanted to start another game with a side where I could afford to bring in all the young talent I know about and where they would want to come, so I chose Arsenal:D Plenty of money, plenty of young talent, good reputation, good facilities etc. etc.

i've managed Reading twice and both times got promoted first time around.. Kevin Doyle's a real gem.

03-07-2009, 21:32
Most of the time I start with Huddersfield as they're my local team and the team I support. Sadly I rarely do very well.

03-07-2009, 21:37
I don't think I've managed the same team more than once since FM05, apart from the demos when I usually have a go with Pompey.
