I'm sure this has been asked many times, but what suggestions would you have of teams that used to be considered "top" teams and have now maybe fallen a few leagues or just not won a title in a few years.
No worries mate...for a real challenge i would suggest Parma in Italy...finances arent huge and squad needs a bit of an overhaul, although with patience there are a few decent youngsters lingering about in the squad. Plus the satisfaction of getting them into the top 6 again is fantastic.
They were one of my favourite teams during the good old days of Goalazio on channel 4 so have a soft spot for them.
Otherwise PSG is a good challenge in France and Leverkusen in Germany! Let us know what you plump for in the end. Wish you every success (i fear you may need it )
Russia, there's the once mighty Spartak Moscow, who haven't won a league title since 2001.
In Italy, Genoa won the last of their nine league titles in 1924, or Torino winning the last of their eight titles in 1976.
Feyenoord in Holland won the last of their fourteen league titles in 1999, are also previous European Champions Cup winners (1970) and EURO Cup winners (1974, 2002).
Finally in Portugal, there's giants Benfica, who although are Portugal's most successful team historically, they haven't won the league since 2005 and prior to that, 1994. Always good to see if you can uncover the next Eusabio and emulate their domestic and European dominance of the 1960's.
