from 07 onwards which is the best you feel for a long term save, Ie Regen wise and clubs able to maintain a strong challenge.

I think this one is.

My current game is in 2031. While I have built Leicester into a powerhouse, I can't run away with everything. For the last several seasons Arsenal and I have traded trophies between us, while Man U and Tottenham have built recent challenges as well.

Good players continue to be developed, I haven't noticed any of the 'player decay' issues of earlier versions'. There's nothing to indicate I couldn't keep playing forever.

Do this;

take a team from the bottom leage to the PRem and win the Cl, repeat a few times.

Also run the Italian and Spanish leagues, manage a team there and win the league.

Then try and build a team of 100% english players and win the league + CL.

That would keep you going for 20+ seasons.

I played Fm07 for a long time - as I didn't like 08 or 09. My longest game was about 20-21 seasons and I would've happily played on for much longer.

But all the decenet regens coming through by that point were left-backs - anyone else ever have that?

It's funny FM07 is where it all began for me. I really like FM10 i just seem to spend more time though in the cool new editor, trying different things. But as far as hours logged, i'd have to say FM08...I hardly played FM09..

FM10 is way better than FM07 regarding long-term games. Also, this should be a poll.

I've tried this before with Arsenal. The problem is, as with real life, English players are always extortionately overrated and it's virtually impossible to build 'the full English'.
Would anyone have any tips for myself or someone else wanting to seriously try this?

I'm not asking for specific players to buy, more of a "set the database up like so: xxx" and possibly even "do the following: (fill in the blanks for me)" Something like that, any tips/info to help would be much appreciated.

Does that make sense?

I've had enjoyable long term saves on each but I never want to go back when I've played the newer version so I would have to say this one.
