    Every single CM/FM game I always end up with a preferred team and then really struggle to atart a new game.

    With 08 I started as Bayern Munich and now even when I start a new game I always end up picking them. Tried playing as Spurs, Hetha Berlin, Lyon etc etc but I always get through pre season and end up longing for Munich. Even worse I left them after 6 years to take over the National team and played one match, which I won and quit the game to start over again.

    So who have been your team of choice over the years?

    For me it was: -
    CM97/98 - Ajax
    CM00/01 - Newcastle
    CM01/02 - Rangers
    CM03/04 - Bolton
    FM05 - Blackburn
    FM06 - Juventus
    FM07 - Spurs
    FM08 - Bayern Munich

    PS I remember the very first season I finished on FM 10 years ago as Ajax, I lost the league on the last day of the season to PSV and went out in the CL Semis.

    Favourite teams I've used:

    FM08 Gateshead
    FM07 Sunderland
    FM06 Darlington
    FM05 Rushden & Diamonds
    CM03/04 Roma

    That's pretty much as far back as I can remember in terms of which teams I've used long term.

    I've had mixed results with Wrexham, a few sh*t attempts which never really worked and the first season is always difficult but if you can succeed than they can be a very rewarding team. Worth a go!

    Spurs. I support them so it's kinda a given.

    However, I've hugely enjoyed playing with and therefore have some loyalty to :

    Dacia Mioveni (ROM)
    Íþróttabandalag Akraness (ICL)
    Spartak Varna (BUL)
    Paulista (BRA)
    Widzew Lódź (POL)

    I have a thing for Killyleagh in Northern Ireland, they start off non-league, but because of the rules in Gundo's challenge, I always make sure I holiday enough times to make sure they appear and get into the playable league.

    Its my third game with them now, and by far my favourite team and games
