FM14: What Team should I be?

Recommended Posts

Nation: France

Division: Ligue 1 or 2

European Competition: No Champions League

Media Prediction: Any

Board Expectation(s): Any

Transfer Budget: As long as there's a little bit to spend

Wage Budget: Same as above

Other: Looking to start a game in France, with a team that's not a top-4 team.

Been looking around the St.Etienne thread and that has caught my interest, but I'm also kinda hooked on Evian.

Can anyone recommend one of the two, or maybe a whole other team?

Have a good youth system over there, I think but Toulouse FC

Valencia CF has a B team in the third division. Finances should be fine and the debt will go down eventuallly

Thanks for your suggestion mate, but I was thinking of a more obscure league than Russia.

I'm doing a save with Leverkusen at the moment. Great core with Leno, Bender, Son. About 5 seasons in, won the CL but never finished higher than 3rd in Bundesliga. Takes time to beat Bayern monopoly plus so many other good teams.

Team now looks like this:

GK: Bernd Leno

LB: Ben Davies

RB: Sebastian Jung

CB: Jonathan Tah

CB: Mattias Ginter

DMC: Emre Can

DMC: Nicklas Stark

AML: Hueng-Min Son

AMC: Mario Gotze

AMR: Julian Brandt

ST: Timo Werner

If anyone's still in this thread...

Nation: Any non-top level Euro nation (so not England, Spain, France, Germany, Italy - preferably not Portugal, Denmark, Nederland, Belgium either)

Division: Top division.

European Competition: would be a bonus, not a deal breaker

Media Prediction: Anything from Title win down to top half

Board Expectation(s): preferably nothing too unrealistic!

Transfer Budget: any

Wage Budget: any

Finances: any

Other: loaded up every league in Europe to see how it goes. Want somewhere I don't have to immediately replace all the staff and gut the playing squad. Aim is to become successful in a 'smaller' league, maybe a European run, then gradually go to bigger clubs and the big leagues. I've looked at e.g. Steaua, Crvena Zvezda, but nothing grabs me yet.

If anyone's looking for a challenge in Belgium I recommend starting as Antwerp in the second tier.

The partnership with Man Utd/Sao Paolo allows you to get great players on free loans so you can move up & balance your books fairly easy.

Looking for a team in the second (or maybe even third) tier of a league.

A team that receives some nice money when promoted (not PSG levels). I know of Nottingham Forest, QPR and Wigan, but was thinking about a team outside of England. Or if there's a team other than those three in England.

Have a look at my thread not quite the country or division you asked for but the rest of the criteria fits, plus you will see that the potential for quality regens is there.

Need help starting my last fm14 save

Nation: n/a

Division: n/a

European Competition: n/a -> Would like to be able to challenge europe in 1 season max

Media Prediction: n/a

Board Expectation(s): n/a

Transfer Budget: n/a

Wage Budget: n/a

Finances: n/a

Other: Well lol, guess this template didn't help much did it?

Basically I am looking for a new challenge so i can tinker with different tactical approaches, more organized and structured play styles. I want to patiently build a strong team to surprise europe. Also need a decent youth academy because i fancy youth development into the first team rather than signing players.

I also dislike ugly color teams that are too strong on the eyes. Prefer an historical club that has went downhill in the last years\decades.

Past saves that I'm not looking to emulate again: BK Forward (swe) \ FC Porto \ Arsenal \ Leeds \ Crewe \ Solihull Moors \ Red Star Belgrad \ Deportivo Coruña.

Thanks in advance.

You might wanna take a look at Middlesborough or Charlton. Mid table in EPL years ago, now down in Championship with some money to play with

On the latest custom DB, I'm wanting to start a game in the Portuguese League, but torn between Sporting and Porto. On the one hand, Sporting have compiled a great squad, with William Carvalho etc. and it'd be good fun to use Nani in that league too, not to mention they now have the CL to compete in. I'm also fond of them due to their links with United and Ronaldo.

But on the other side, I have always had a thing for Porto too, and I am loving their new look squad, with players like Martins Indi and Tello, its definitely a new challenge, and that restriction of South American players only is now gone.

Which team do you guys think I should go for?

Porto is more of a challenge in my eyes. Prolly can take them far with Jackson Martinez on hand as well

Yeah, that's what I'm going for. It also came down to the fact that Porto are much more financially stable than Sporting, so I'll actually be able to strengthen the team and challenge for the European spots.

Thank you, Betis it is then.

I would have said Auxerre, got them as a side save to go along my main 2 and it's been pretty fun so far, top of Ligue 2 in Febuary with only 1 player added, there's a few kids with potential plus a few newgens that look like they might be handy in a few years, downside is there is no money coming in.

On an updated DB, looking to start as a premier league side, but torn between a few.

Thinking strongly about West Ham, as they now have quite a nice team, with Jenkinson and Cresswell, and Zarate and Song in midfield. Although I'm considering Hull aswell, being in Europe and having quite a bare squad, with Swansea also being in the mix, as I am quite fond of their squad and style of play.

What do you guys think?

Alright lads, I've been doing a Liverpool save for 5 seasons now and getting bored of it since the market isn't really good on the save and mostly regens are the best players to buy and I don't like them.

I'm using the latest LFCMarshal update and was using pretty much the original Liverpool squad the whole time. Sold like 5 players from the original squad and developed everyone and it was a success. I'm looking for a similar challenge but with a smaller team.

- Pretty good core of players

- Not a TOP club (mid-table or just above)

- I want to take a few years until I win the domestic title

- Good enough reputation to attract talent (not world class talent but good enough)

Any division in Europe.

Hope it's enough info. If you need any more, just ask and I'll give it.

Braga should be a fun save for you. Not really a big team but can be big if you build them up. I would also say Rubin Kazan. A lot of money and you can rebuild the squad with ease...

I went a different road and chose Aston Villa. I haven't managed another team in England except Liverpool in FM14 so it should be interesting. Listed as rich but not a whole lot of money to shop with. Good foundation of a youth system and a lot of interesting young English players that can compete.

Ac. Viseu, Liga2 Cabovisão (Portugal)

Albacete, Liga Adelante (Spain)

CSM, Râmnicu Vâlcea, Liga 2 Seria II (Romania)

Denizlispor, 1. Lig (Turkey)

Karsikaya, 1. Lig (Turkey)

I've done a save with them before but how about Malaga?? Decent finances with some youth already there. It will take a while to get them somewhere but its a good fit
