    Either stay at Brighton, or go to Man United and take Dick Lord with you. Whatever you do, you can't get rid of your Dick Lord

    Yes!

    £69,000 per week and £51 million to spend on players. From the Championship to the top of the Premier League.

    And of course Wayne Rooney!

    I'd make a back-up save before saying yes though, just in case you regret your decision you can go back and continue managing Brighton.

    I see you turned down Deportivo already so if its for the same reasons then your decision is already made.

    Aye, but look at my forum username!

    I decided to take it and I made a backup save.

    Time to re-sign Dick Lord.

    Hoping you set your starting reputation as international footballer?

    Seems fairly unlikely that they would offer the job to a League 1 manager in real life.

    Do yourself a favour for a longer running game. Just say no.

    Obviously you should say no as a liverpool fan.

    I wouldn't manage them if they paid me £1.5mill a week and gave me 51mill to spend!!

    aye united and mexico offered me a job when i got a team promoted from lg2 lol, had international footballer on as my rep, started again on sunday league rep now as that was daft, just got Oldham promoted in my first season when my target was mid - table and im still classed as unproven so no chance at any higher jobs yet.

    Take over them, and get them RELEGATED!!!!

    It's the most satisfying thing you can do in FM.

    OK, your screen name probably means you disagree....wait for a Man City offer, then do it???

    Enjoy your dream job anyway, hope you have all the success you wish for.

    Do clubs only approach you if you apply for the job or do they do so without applying?

    they do so without applying, but you only get them approaches if you set rep as international footballer, if your sunday league takes a age

    Both.

    Its quite common for them to make an approach without you having showed interest. This has happened twice with my current PNE game, I've been approached by Sunderland, then Fulham.

    There are a few teams in the game that I will never accept an offer from, no matter how good they may be.

    Man U is one of those teams.

    Ask yourself what will give you more satisfaction: winning the title with United, or performing against the odds with Brighton? Getting Brighton into the Champions League, for example, would mean much more to me than winning it with United.

    I don't see the difference between starting with a top club or starting with the reputation of international footballer. It seems you will get picked up by a top club eventually anyways.

    What is the difference between Sunday league footballer and automatic reputation?

    Yeah, but in England we play on a Saturday, Sunday and Monday these days, with the odd midweek too.

    Doesn't change the fact that here, a football game should be played on a Saturday at 3pm, and in spain it should be played Sunday evening. Anything else is just TV related :-p

    It all depends what you want to get out of the game.

    Some people like career games - by this I mean start with a small club and move from job to job, up the career ladder. If this is the intention of your game, then go for the Man Utd job.

    Others, like myself, prefer to stay with one club and see how far you can take them. If so then, while it is tempting to take a big job if offered, is it really what you wanted from the game? After all, if you want to manage Man Utd, just start a new game with them

    you get offered any job if your a international footballer rep, i turned united and spurs down in season 2 and id managed only in league 2, thats why i started again on sunday league footballer, much more real, no offers now, just got to regional rep after season 2 like the guy says above if you wanna manage united so early just start with them.
