Nation: Preferably Italy

Division: Any

European Competition: None

Media Prediction: Attainable promotion when not in top league, relegation candidate if Serie A.

Board Expectation(s): -

Transfer Budget: Doesn't matter

Wage Budget: Doesn't matter either

Finances: Doesn't matter though a team without a huge debt draining the finances would be nice

Other: I have been starting alot of saves as of lately only to scratch it in a couple of weeks. I would like a team with a player to build around (like Clemente at Perugia). Someone who is top class for the league but who is by no means among the world's best etc.

Pescara and build around Verratti? Promotion first season is achievable

]Nation: england

Division: Premier league

European Competition: - none

Media Prediction: -

Board Expectation(s): Relegation battle

Budget - a bit transfer budget if possible.

Wage Budget: Enough to bring in decent players

Finances: Preferrably a bit money available of necessary

Other: I am looking for a long term save with a side where I can worth with what I have and gradually improve the side. I have been thinking either Swansea or Norwich. But leaning towards Swansea as they have a healthy £5m budget ahead of norwichs £0.

Thoughts

Swansea have a very solid side to start off with and from what I have read they tend to be an enjoyable save!!!!

Hello,

I'm having some problem to start a new game, the teams area boring.

My last team was Tottenham, Napoli, Newcastle, and now I want to start with a team that isn't in the top. I'm thinking in England, but Sampdoria from Italia is easy when you go to Serie A?

Nation: England

Division: Premiership

European Competition: Not important

Media Prediction: 11º to 20º

Board Expectation(s): Relegation battle or middle

Transfer Budget: 3M or more

Wage Budget: Enough to bring in decent players

Finances: Not important

Other: I want a challeging team, that can be in Europe in 2 seasons

Teams in my mind: WBA, Swans or Sampdoria from Italy.

thanks people.

WBA have some very decent player. I'd go with them.

Could anyone suggest a league outside Europe where there isn't a restriction on foreign players or the rules are quite relaxed, preferably in Asia but doesn't matter if not

Most outside Europe are pretty strict in terms of player restrictions however Argentina is good in the sense it only takes about 730 days to become a citizen, it is also a fun save in FM terms, loved my River save, might actually restart it.

Board Expectation(s): Don't mind

Transfer Budget: Any

Wage Budget: Any

I'm looking for a team with solid foundations that I can develop into a top side. Someone interesting, I'm open to anywhere in Europe if it has an interesting enough long term goal.

I would recommend Hoffenheim. A small club in retrospect as they are just a local village side that were taken over by business man Dietmar Hopp. Under his ownership they quickly rose through the ranks to the Bundesliga. They have achieved three mid-table finishes since then and now have a new stadium. A cracking save and being in Germany I feel it is the best league on the game.

I do love managing in Germany and have considered hoffenheim previously, my only concern with them is the departures of ibisevic, obasi and gylfi significantly weaken the team in first season.

So you are playing on the update. Well I have to say that I havent played with them since the update but even with them departing, that just increases the challenge which makes it more fun surely.

Yeah latest update. Yeah I suppose it would make it more of a challenge. I think I'm gonna give it a go, thanks for your suggestions mate. Shifting babel and cancelling lakic loan will be the first things I do, I love a tight wage structure.

Want to start a game to see me through until the next FM, I can never get a long term save going and it does my head in!

Thinking about managing one of the big clubs in England, Italy, Spain or Germany but not too sure who to go with, Arsenal are my favorite team but I have no idea how to keep the save going!

In Germany you've got Bayern who haven't won league in a couple of years, Dortmund who are champs and have some amazing young players, or teams like Bremen, Schalke and Stuttgart who all have decent bases to build on. Bundesliga is a lot of fun aswell, more open than other leagues as anyone in top 8 has some chance of winning the title.

I'm not sure what I want, need a fun game. Has to be in Europe but not in England, France, Germany, Italy, Russia or Spain. I'm open to pretty much any mid level country in Europe. Not bothered about finances, just something interesting. I've considered anything from shakhtar to hibs! Just need a push in the right direction. Thanks

Anyway just suggest me a club from those two leagues and give reasons why should I manage that club. Thank you in advance. Cheers. :)

@edgar555 - PSV are my favorite team in Holland (would love a game with them if their stadium were 25k bigger), so it's a no to Ajax - Hate the Spanish min clause thing, so no to them also

@NothernGooner/SRL88 - I've a Bayern Munich game going, so it isn't going to be a German team - even though a like Werder, will they get a new stadium/have Weserstadium expanded to over 60k? + they haven't got the youth facilities that I want, never Hoffenheim hate them and their try to buy themself to succes

Nation:Any

Division:Any

European Competition: Any

Media Prediction: Top Half - Challenge for continental qualification

Board Expectation(s):

Transfer Budget: Enough to bring in a few players to compliment the system

Wage Budget:Same as above

Finances:As long as it isnt crippling debt im not to fussed

Currently trying to set up a very versatile fluid attacking system as seen here and want a team who would fit in well with that style of play. IM currently trialling it with Barca but they are strong enough to win games regardless of formation so looking for something a little more challenging. I thought Ajax but they are similar to Barca, big team in a small pond. Any ideas anyone?

Real Sociadad in Spain

top facillities, stadium will get expanded year on year if your doing well and it will make money if you dont go mental on wages as its carrying one of, if no the lowest level of debt in the league.

key youngsters to build a team aroud, martinez at the back, irramendi (sp) and prieto (older but quality) in midefield and griezman out wide. finding a goal scorer can be a struggle for the first season.

media prediction of 16th but can get top 4 and cl football in the 1st season with some decent transfer moves.

most enjoyable saves ive had have been with these.

I am currently in my longest save ever with Auxerre, my squad consists of only home grown players or players signed before they were 21 from French speaking nations. Took 8 Seasons and back to back champions league wins to talk the board into building a new Stadium, as the max capacity in the old ground is 21'379... the new one will only be 31k. They are always happy to upgrade the youth facilities and training facilities though.

Germany is the league for you if you want a wide variety of winners. Stay away from Bayern obviously, but other sides include Monchengladbach, Schalke, Hoffenheim, Werder Bremen, Wolfsburg, Bayer Leverkusen, Dortmund are all capible of winning the Bundesliga. Brilliant league.

It's the year 2017, I've already made Bordeaux into the best club in France, 4 straight league titles and a Europa League title.

Now I'm leaving for Spain... do I pick Sevilla or Espanyol?
