I cannot seem to get settled on a long term save due to my unwanted ability to be indecisive with tactics and what formation to to play etc etc.

I can never decide to use a formation to suit the team i have or always stick with a particular formation and tactic/style of play, its doing my head in!!

So i would like to know what the majority of you guys do please, all feedback welcome!!

Cheers

Try Aston Villa, after the financial difficulties of having no money to spend & high earners on the books it is a great journey and after the deadwood can be moved on there is the base of good young team in the making there!

Hi guys.

I want to focus my next save on youth development but finding the right team is proving to be tricky. The main problem I'm having is there being too many excellent youngsters in the teams with good facilities, it makes it too overwhelming to try to give them all the care they deserve!

I'm not too bothered about stature or country, but some decent prospects and the potential for more are a must.

To get technical, and as a bit of an aside, I've been toying with the idea of what kind of youths I would need to acquire to become a decent team in Europe, such as Last 16 CL or knockout rounds of the Europa League - I'm thinking rated 145/150 pa - then find a team which has the resources but not the immediate expectations to bring 16/20 of these young players together in two or three seasons and then in a few more years time to bring these youth up to potential and get to the aforementioned level. Could be interesting?

Other: I'm looking for a team for a long term save with which I can build up the facilities to eventually have a home grown team. I've tried this before, but can't get into it because of a lack of interest during the first couple of years. So an additional consideration is to have a solid mid-table team already, that upon retirement I can eventually offer staff jobs. Make it interesting!

I decided to go with Dynamo Dresden in my save, so I can recommend it to you as well.

Why are they disgusting?

Because of their association with a certain club. This makes them disgusting to me but that's only because I massively dislike the club they are associated with.

Here's the catch.

I'm looking for a team that is in a beautiful area / place to live but the team itself is not very good. I'd then like to make a beautiful team for this beautiful location. I did this on FM11 with Pescara, with the stadium near the beautiful Adriatic coastline (Google image Pescara). Give me an example and I will first Google the location and then decide if I am happy with the team. Thanks to anyone who gets back to me.

Thanks for the great ideas/locations but these teams are too good! I wasn't clear enough in my post, sorry. It should have read 'I would like a team that is not in the top flight of their country, for example a team in Spain that is NOT in La Liga'.

More thoughts would be great, glad you like my idea :)

Monaco are in Ligue 2 at the start of the game ;)

Okay then, here are a few more ideas:

What about NK Primorac 1929? In the second division of the Croatian league. Barely ever been in the top division other than a 3 season spell in the 90's, but their ground is really nice, and in a beautiful area of Croatia:

Or you could try Italy again, and go with Bari:

Division: Any

Media Prediction: A wide range but not challenging for title.

Board Expectation(s): Same as above

Transfer Budget: Any

Wage Budget: Any

Finances: Preferably little or no debt

Having trouble to last more than a couple seasons on this version of FM. Basically, a club with a decent youth setup plus a squad able to play in 4-1-2-3 formation.

PSV? They haven't won the league in a good while for their high standards. They do have a good squad but Ajax have an incredible squad for this division so you aren't a certainty for the title. Highlight of managing alot of young Dutch stars and the one Dries Mertens. Great Youth Facilities to boot as well.

Thanks for your reply. PSV will be challenging for the title if I'm not mistaken. I was looking at Eredivise but more into Twente, AZ, Utrecht, Heerenveen or Groningen.

Media Prediction: Upper-mid to top of table

Board Expectation(s): Same as above

Transfer Budget: Need to have enough to play with, or at least a few mediocre stars I can move on to generate funds

Wage Budget: As above

Finances: Decent, see above

Basically, I've really lost interest in FM, and would like to start again with the summer update I downloaded. Normally I go for Chelsea or Tottenham, and they are options. I'm a Man Utd fan, so not them, as my games are always with them. Not got time for LLM. Would play Classic Mode, but then I can't use the update. I'm aware my specifications only leave a handful of clubs, but I'm keen to hear from anyone who has had a good time with a particular team within those!

Might also manage Belgian national team, anyone tried that?

Newcastle have a few players you can ship out like Gosling, Ryan Taylor etc for you to generate your own funds as clubs are usually interested in them when you offer them out. You could completely transform a side like Stoke from a long ball team into a 'footballing side'.

Southampton is the obvious choice in England really.

Rostok have decent youth facilities for their level in Germany. Could also look at Murcia :thup:.

I had a game as Napoli that I was quite enjoying, who seemed to fall neatly into this category. Was wondering if anyone else could suggest a team to play as. Idealistically, they'll be top 5-6 team, with decent money (not loads and loads) and some decent youngsters to begin to develop.
