Your Biggest Career Move

75 posts in this topic

Unlike some FM gamers, my goal is to get to a top, top club via success at less glamorous teams. At this point I need some inspiration to keep this up, so I ask you, what has been your biggest change of clubs?

Celtic to Barcelona.

It was a long career game, starting in Australia, then a couple of clubs in England, then a club in France, then my shot at the big time at Celtic.

At Celtic I won the league twice, and the Champions League once.

Barcelona wanted me to join, offered me 400 million transfer budget.

They had been relegated, so I was given 400 million to spend on a team in division two.

Got them back up at first attempt after buying a dozen players, but they never gelled and I quit the game/save after 2 and a half seasons.

will clubs like Barca, real, and Milan come in for you if you manage a good side already. Like if u manage Lpool and manage to take many cups and while with lpool, get offers from big teams?? or do they not bother asking assuming u wont leave??

Rugby Utd (Conference South) to Everton (Prem)

At that point I'd already built up a reputaton with domestic or european sucess at Aberdeen, Newcastle, Man City and Lazio, so I decided to try the bottom.

I ddn't like it much, but luckily my reputation was still big enough for me to get back to the top (sort of, I left everton after 3 days).

in 2019 and my biggest move so far was from harrogate town (blue square north) to stoke (championship).

since then i've gone back down to league 2, now with stockport, and im still waiting for at least a mediocre premiership club to come for me [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

Aachen to Liverpool. I'd only been there a couple of seasons (although I'd been at other smaller clubs before that), and at the time, had won absolutely nothing at club level. Hadn't even won a lower division.

I had won a World Cup with England that probably helped boost my reputation though.

Hyde United in the BSN to Manchester United end of season 1.

In fairness though, I started the game with "International Footballer" reputation, had Man Utd set as "favorite club", signed a parent club deal with Man Utd, praised Ferguson and players all the time and at one point had 14 players from United on loan.

I edited nothing and did'nt "cheat" that I know of, but when you're a BSN club, with no loan restrictions and Man Utd as a parent club, what do you do other than loan everyone you can [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

Needless to say, I won the BSN, Setanta Shield, FA Trophy and reached the 4th round of the FA Cup, loosing a close game to Tottenham away.

At the end of the season, had already had Sevilla, PSG, Roma and Werder Bremen linking me to their vacant positions. Then, after Man Utd had ended 4th in the Premier and won no trophies, Sir Alex's contract was not renewed, a media report asked if I was interested, (wishing there was a "Hell Yes!" reply available...). Two days later I was manager of Manchester United [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]

The downside to this though, was I was really enjoying my Hyde United save and wanted to split the saves with a new Man Utd save, whilst retaining a Hyde United save. Unfortunately I clicked "save" instead of "save as" [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img]

Was gutted I'd lost my Hyde United save. It also spoilt my enjoyment of my new job. Just goes to show the gras is'nt always greener eh... [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

do you need to apply to get offered a job at a big club?

It's just whenever you apply your current club gets mental and it's really annoying so i rarely bother applying...

Although it can depend on the chairman of the club, if you're at a club with far lower reputation than the club you apply for, then they tend not to have a problem I've found.

Another thing I tend to keep in mind is if I'm actually linked with the job in the media, as this can be a good sign that if you apply, you'll actually get the job.

ok but in general you need to actually apply to get the job? cause on previous versions i have been offered a job without actually applying when ive been managing somewhere so i just wasn't sure if this has changed as it hasn't happened so far in this game

I start most of my games unemployed with most of the top european leagues running hence i quite often get interesting moves.

Top on was when i moved from lazio (who i'd won the CL for) to Roma because lazio wouldn't meet my wage demands lol. I felt especially smug after knocking them out of the following champions league.

I tried to go back to Queens Park 2 seasons later but was turned down for a much crappier manager, boy clubs never forgive you for leaving them on this game. They were relegated from the SPL so [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_razz.gif[/img]
