FM12: Which team will be for you?

Recommended Posts

Heath, until I read the last issue of WSC I hadnt realised how well Grenada were doing, congrats. Not so much lower League anymore!, hope you do a LLM Thread maybe for Thurrock (love those kits). Of course I shall be wading around the ,lower reaches of the Blue Square signing a legion of unkowns with Scrabble busting names, I just like it that way.

If I do an FM12 Lower Leagues thread in the tactics forum, I've a sneaky feeling I'll probably start with Truro in the BSS. I lived in Cornwall for a couple of years and it's nice to see a Cornish team get that high up the non-league pyramid. I always tend to play as teams I've seen, or who's progress I've followed.

That said, I've always started my lower league saves in England, with the exception of Granada CF when they were in the Segunda B4, so it might be interesting to start somewhere else for a change.

First save, I'm quite fancying Cardiff City. Followed by a journeyman save with 6-7 3 and a half stars or less loaded. See if DLP has improved.

It all depends on which team takes my fancy out of the ones that get promoted into the 3rd division after a season of holidaying in Germany. I love the CSE forum.

Litex Lovech

Too bad that there isn't a option for Grisha Ganchev(Litex chairman) to bribe the referees and the Bulgarian Football Union, that will make the game 100% realistic.

I'm not a Leeds fan, but after managing them to 3 consecutive CL-triumphs and 5 times EPL winners in a row I've fallen a little in love.. Leeds have a great foundation to build a big club upon!

Southend and AFC Wimbledon most probably, to gauge who I can buy.

Portland Timbers (for all the reasons I stated under the best fans thread)... if they are included, otherwise, I won't even buy the game.

B.S. move to not have them included this year, but somehow it feels like it's in line with some sort of general attitude towards the MLS in the game.

Mine will be in this order:

1. Chelsea, my team, and always a nice easy save to get my into the game.

2. Chelmsford City - a nice lower league challenge, and my local team.

3. Unemployed, journeyman save.

Eh? They've only just got into the league when SI will have gotten the rights last year early days when making FM11 so they didn't have them in as they didn't have the rights.

I don't know what the real life team is like, but my save as Litex in FM11 has been great fun. I'm going to give Malmo a go in FM12, and hope a save as them will be as fun as my Litex save.

I've got 3 clubs in mind. Leicester City who I support, and then River Plate or Deportivo La Coruna, as they'll be interesting saves trying to return them to their countries top flight.

'Manchester United' and 'Fudbalski Klub Sarajevo' as always. Maybe save games with 'Bosnia and Herzegovina', 'England', 'Portugal' and maybe 'Brazil' and 'Holland'.

Well I should mention that I took me like many years to actually get really big.. I think I won EPL in 2018-20-ish and then CL in 2022-23-ish. Best thing about it was that 3 of my best players were all from youth squad and all were internationals for England. and two of them only had 2,5 stars PA, but alot of training and playing time and when they were 24-ish they were the best in england in their position.

God.. I miss my Leeds game.. :( - Thats it.. I'm starting with leeds in Fm2012! :D

First Ajax as they're my local team, and then probably a spanish team in the segunda B, but might try a save with malaga just for fun.

Always start with Tottenham, lack of new signings this year will make it a little disappointing tho. Wouldn’t be surprised if we ended up with a smaller transfer budget then last season as well

I'm torn between going for a Lille save or, for the first time ever, a Journeyman/Unemployed save.

Randomised journeyman save i reckon. Got OFK Botev (Vratsa) on FM11 so would like something similarly obscure, but maybe not Eastern Europe this time

I'll start with my local team Haukar and then see how things pan out, I'll probably try to stick with them for 15-20 years before moving on to bigger and bigger teams all over Europe and Asia.

I always start with Celtic and usually have quite a long save with them, then I'm probably gonna try Anzhi and PSG because of the massive transfer budgets, will be fun :D

A quick go with Luton and then A long save with Neath until with patch 3 and then Luton from patch 3 onwards. But probably small saves with some big clubs like Arsenal, Chelsea and Utd

For the demo, maybe Man Utd, then will be going for Millwall like I always do and also Anzhi as that will be very fun indeed!

I will probably end up managing every team on the game at some point though. Only a few games are successful, and I never know which ones they are!

I think about in start a long term save in Dover Athletic.

Rushden was my favorite, but the team goes to administration... bad.

In demo i will start with Sport Recife, my team here in Brazil.

As always firstly I'll start a game with AC Milan, making them a dominant force in the whole world, and make a whole team with Italian players from the youth academy at some point.

Then the usual journeyman save, loading lots of leagues throughout the world.

Last, I'll start a game in the Albanian leagues, either with the recently promoted to the Superleague Pogradeci FK, or the sleeping giants and recently relegated to the 3rd tier, Partizani Tirana, will try and win the Champions League with them.

Hull City or England

I try to manage teams like Man city or Lower league teams but I can't ever find the motivation to manage a team I'm personally not passionate about.

I managed Hull from FM07-FM10, and really enjoyed the saves. They're a good choice if you want a challenge in the Premier League when you get them there. I like their team colours as well, which is a bonus.

My first save will probably be Chelsea, as it is first choice every season. Probably then do my home town of Corby, especially with the new stadium hopefully increasing finances well.

Surprised Sunderland hasn't been mentioned in this thread as of yet. The defence possibilities of O'Shea, Brown, Ferdinand, Turner, Bardsley and Bramble is too good to turn down!
