nyg Posted November 16, 2020 Share Posted November 16, 2020 (edited) Welcome to the Sunderland thread for FM21. I didn't see one last year, so I decided to make one myself for this year. Club Details Team Name: Sunderland AFC Year Founded: 1879 Chairman: Stewart Donald Current Manager: Phil Parkinson Club Captain: Max Power Vice Captain: Bailey Wright Country: England League: Sky Bet Leaue One Media Prediction: 2nd Fierce Rivals: Newcastle Other Rivals: Middlesbrough, Portsmouth Derbies: Wear-Tees Derby ( vs Middlesbrough), Tyne & Wear Derby (vs Newcastle) Legends: Kevin Phillips, Bobby Kerr, Jim Montgomery, Len Shackleton, Ian Porterfield, Gary Rowell, Charlie Hurley, Bob Stokoe, Niall Quinn Icons: Kevin Ball, Peter Reid, Vic Halom Favoured Personnel: Sebastian Larsson, Jermaine Defoe, Lee Cattermole Club Vision Club Culture: -Play attacking football (Preferred) -Play possession football (Preferred) -Develop players using the club's youth system (Favoured) 5 year plan: -Work within wage budget End of current season: - EFL Leagune One: Win promotion -FA Cup: Reach fourth round -EFL Cup: Reach second round Facilities Stadium: The Stadium of Light Capacity: 48,707 all-seater Corporate Facilities: Good Training Facilities: Superb Youth Facilities: Excellent Youth Level: 1 Youth Stadium: Academy of Light Training Ground: Academy of Light Junior Coaching: Adequate Youth Recruitment: Average Club Finances Balance: £5,966,096M Finances: Okay Transfer Budget: £500k Wage Budget: £179,795k p/w Scouting Budget: £186,986 The Team Goalkeepers -Lee Burge -Remi Matthews Really close race between the goalkeepers, neither one should be there for the long term. Burge's best role is sweeper keeper, while Matthew's is goalkeeper. Up to the managers preferences I guess. Behind them Anthony Patterson is a real talent on this level. Central defender - Tom Flanagan - Jordan Willis -Bailey Wright -Arbenit Xhemajli Again a close race, this time with a clear standout. Wright should be the first choice centre back when fit, with Willis as his partner. Xhemajli seems to have good potential, so he should get game time during the season. Left back - Denver Hume -Callum McFadzean Denver Hume should be the first choice. Clearly better than McFadzean, and he's also a product of the academy. Also have some potential to grow into a Championship level left back. Right back - Conor McLaughlin -Luke O'Nien -Dion Sanderson(Loan) Hard to tell who's best here, but O'Nien seems to have an edge on the other ones. Sanderson's on loan for the season, so unless he's outperforming O'Nien in pre-season he should be backup. Central Midfielder - Max Power -George Dobson -Josh Scowen -Grant Leadbitter -Elliot Embleton -Dan Neil Here you have some different types of players. Most of them are hard working, no nonsense players. Embleton got real potential and is a more offensive alternative to the others. The same goes for Dan Neil, could be a real gem. Leadbitter is the second highest earner in the squad so I would look offload him, even if he is from the acadamy. Left Wing - Aiden McGeady -Chris Maguire - Aiden O'Brien - Jack DiamondHere you got some flair and tricky players. McGeady is over the top and got a big salary on this level. All of them are at a similar level, O'Brien is a harder worker than the rest of them, and in his best age. Diamond got a big potential and could live up to his last name. All of the can play on both sides, and make up for the lack of natural right wingers in the squad. Right Wing - Lynden Gooch The best(and only) right winger in the squad. Decent overall winger who works hard. Can also look to Kimpioka from the academy for cover in this position. Striker - Danny Graham - Charlie Wyke - Will Grigg None of the three are star performers on this level. All of them seems to be okay with backup-roles. Both Graham and Wyke are best as target man, while Grigg is a best as a poacher. Could form a decent duo from this three. Graham and Grigg will score you penalties. Would look to invest to strengthen the squad here. Academy There are some decent talents at the club, despite the big guns stealing the best of the academy players before the season. Would have been nice to have both Hugill and Pye, but that's the reality on level 3.. Notable talents are Anthony Patterson, Dan Neil, Benji Kimpioka, Elliot Embleton, Jay Turner-Cooke, Adam Richardson, Ollie Younger and Sonny Singh. Transfer suggestions -Jason Cummings -John Guidetti -Tobias Sagstuen Andersen -Matt O'Riley -Andre Green -Aidan Barlow -Mathias Fjørtoft Løvik -Kaylen Hinds -Donis Avdijaj -Fernando Costanza -Richard Nartey Edited November 17, 2020 by nyg 4 Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
