FM12: What Team Should I Be?

Recommended Posts

Nation: France, Germany, Spain

Division:Top Division

European Competition: Not too bothered

Media Prediction: Top Half

Board Expectation(s): Same as Above

Transfer Budget: Don't want massive supplies, just enough to make some changes, around 10 mil

Wage Budget: Not over budget

Finances: Ok

Want a long term save in one of the top European leagues where I can eventually turn them into a major power Europe. I'd like a team with one or two quality players I can shape a team around, like I did with Napoli last year. They don't have to be a sleeping giant, but have good enough facilities for what I want to achieve.

...if they had a colourful kit that would be an added bonus.

Wolfsburg - $10m transfers to start. Top half expectations, flexible squad.

HSV don't fit the money part of that, unfortunately.

look at Wolfsburg. they get £10M+ but they fit everything else and need quite a bit of strenghtening in defence (where there are a lot of bargains).

I strongly recommend Fulham, even though they are in the very preliminary Europa League stages. Board expectation is mid-table. Now, the media keep on saying we're cash strapped but this is bollocks. I've got £24m bank balance. The board always inject more money. You have saleable assets and can get high earners off the roster within a season, and bring in cheaper, better players.

definitely try wolves! avoid relegation at the start with around 8m transfer budget. The squad already is more than capabable of acheiving this without any transfers so you can climb up the league! The club usually make profits every month. When you begin there is a stadium expansion in process which will increase your monthly income and in my third season the board increased again (without me asking). this then left me with 1m bank balance however the chairman pumped in 21m therefore you shouldnt have any money problems.

There Defence actually is quite good. Covers for both full backs, Central Defenders, even though over 30 are better than good for the first season at least. Kjaar is due back the season after, as Roma will not have enough funds to complete the transfer.

I would look at bringing a Right Full back and 1 or 2 central midfielders.

Nation: any

European Competition: any

Media Prediction:any

Transfer Budget: any

Wage Budget: any

Ok I hope this is how it works :p Here goes.

Nation: any. Strongly prefer Europe, and possibly a nation with good reputation.

Division: top. Can be second, but would need very strong rep and great finances

European Competition: doesn't matter

Media Prediction: doesn't matter

Board Expectation(s): also not important

Transfer Budget: at least 3 million pounds

Wage Budget: at least 20% left, without asking board for more

Finances: positive bank balance. Doesn't have to be rich at game start, but needs fluid finances

Other: must be a league with not too many games per season so I don't need to have a large squad to keep everyone fit. And MOST IMPORTANTLY: no stupid league match restrictions. Stuff like "only X foreign players" in Russia is out of the question. Work permit is fine, severly limiting my player choices isn't.

Bump! Any ideas at all?

I had a great game with Brighton, really fun. Some good youngsters and great board. Southampton have top facilities, great youth and big budgets. I'd say between those two mate.

Are there any lower league teams in England that guarantee to be taken over by a sugar daddy fairly soon that invests loads of money into the club for players, stadium, training, etc?

Looking for a team in;

Brazilian premier league

Liga BBVA

Championship/OR League 1(in England)

Not a Santos, Athletico Madrid sized team, but a squad that basically has players with high mental and physical stats. Determination and work-rate/team work being the main ones. Not full of flashy pansies in other words. Someone who I can build a solid unit with, and maybe add one or two bargains. Cheers. No European competition either.

Spain: Sociedad, Zaragoza, Betis, Racing Club Santander

Championship: Watford ,Derby, Bristol City, Peterborough, Middlesbrough (lots of homegrown too, especially if you shift some of the deadwood - when they played Sunderland the other night 9 of their 11 players were from their academy)

Not too knowledgeable on Brazilian league sorry, don't usually play it on FM because of the incredible amount of games.
