Hi,

So I'm playing a "career" save. This is my only save so far in the game. I started as unemployed and as a reputation as sunday league footballer. I'm currently on November 2028 and managing FC Utrecht in Holland and managing my home country Finland.

I've had a good career so far, starting out in the finnish second division, having had short spells in Russia and South Africa I Moved to Barnsley. I got them promoted to championship and moved to West Ham, which were playing in Championship at that time. Took them up to 8th in the premier and got offered a job in Inter Milan.

So I took the job, won 3 italian cups, 2 Serie A:s, but I was dissappointed that I was somehow unable to lead Inter to CL glory. Allthough I'm, in my opinion, a good cup manager. So I left Inter after we missed our third consecutive Serie A title.

Then I tried at portugal, It did not work out and now I'm in Holland. As I said. So, a good career so far.

I got Utrecht promoted back to Eredivisien and won the ducth cup during the first year in Eredivisien (beating Vitesse RESERVES in the final). But now, I'm a bit stuck.

I'm bored at Utrecht, everything is going ok, I have a good squad, a solid tactic an everything is "ok". But I think that is the problem. I cant see a progress being made at holland with this tactic and thes players.

I've been using pretty much the same tactics my whole career: 4-5-1/4-3-3, Ball control. And then 4-1-4-1 counter on away. I've only done some few minor tweaks depending on the players I have (like little more creativity, player roles etc)

SO, I think I'll have few ideas, and I'd like to hear what others think:

1) "build something"
- Basicly, taking up a little team in Italy, England, Spain or France and trying to take it up the divisions
- I can easily get a job from a minor club, my reputation is World Class
--> this is definately something that I want to try in somepoint, to see where my world class reputation can take me. But not really sure if the time is right

2) "go back to Italy"
- I get constantly linked with clubs like Juventus, Palermo, Fiorentina (obvious because what I achieved with Inter)

3) "chage your style"
- So creating a new tactics and making it work.
- I would have time to do so in Utrecht, because I have no pressure, and we are makin profit like 250-500k a month

4) "try something exotic"
- I've tons of leagues selelcted, so I could take a job in Australia, USA, South Africa for example


So anyone have any ideas?

Personally, I think there's a Champions League trophy missing from your cabinet. ;)

I agree, your aim should be to get your hands on a champions league trophy even if you have to move clubs to get it.

If you have a nation from each continent loaded, you should try to win each continental trophy. But if not, what the three above me said.

Sounds like you still have unfinished business with Inter to me, You gotta get your European cup mate.

Yep, I know, still no European trophy. Best chance was with Inter, but lost 1-0 on aggregate against bayern.

Now, after getting a sack from utrecht (I applied to Valencia, Villareal, Arsenal and Dortmund) I have 4 offers on the table:
- Newell's (argentina)
- Botafogo (Brazil)
- Lokomotiv Moscow (russia)
- HSV (Germany, second division)

So, I decided to go to Moscow, Interesting team, big stadium and lots of money to use. And still a chance to win the Europa League title this season :)

And for Deadpanda: I do have a country selected from every continent, well not actually in asia, but I can partisipate to Asian Champions League wit Australian clubs. And to win everyone of thos, of course, is my ultimate goal in the game :D

you should try to win the Champions League before you're 70 years old in the game. After that you'd most probably retire IRL
