A Wish For Santa: The Azorean Dream For my next FM save I've decided to delve into a country that I've barely touched on any FM. C.D. Santa Clara are based on Sao Miguel island, the largest island within the Azores. Being based in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean they are the westernmost top flight club in Europe, therefore one of the most isolated (Maritimo are on Madeira island to the south-east of the Azores). The Club: C.D. Santa Clara With a basic setup, Santa Clara are definitely over-achieving. This is the club's third stint in the top-flight having had two short-lived previous spell in the early 2000s. A 10th place finish last season is the club's best ever finish and a great foundation to build on, though we should be wary of being dragged into a relegation battle after being predicted to finish 15/18. Aims of the save are: Compete with the 'big boys' of Portuguese football and eventually win league and cup titles. Win the Champions League Whilst not strict, have an ethos of bringing through young Azorean players, ideally having 5+ graduates in the lineup when we can produce adequate quality.
