FM14: What Team should I be?

Recommended Posts

Real Sociedad is a fun save. You get a decent lump of cash at the start and you have a STACKED squad with potential

That's a good suggestion actually, if I could keep hold of Vela and Griezmann it'd be fun

Nation: Turkey

Division: Preferably bottom

European Competition: None

Media Prediction: Preferably not favourites to win promotion, but fairly easy here - would put this behind a club that I enjoy being a part of in my order of preference

Board Expectation(s): Any

Transfer Budget: Any

Wage Budget: Any

Finances: Any - Preferably not a 'fallen giant' or 'hidden gem' - looking to build from the ground up.

Other: I'm looking to start a game in Turkey, preferably taking a club from the bottom to the top, in order to have a go at a save where a foreign player limit is imposed upon me. I often choose my club based on whether I can put up with their colours for the decades I'll be with them; being a Leeds fan I do rather enjoy white. That said, it's a bonus not a requirement!

Many thanks

I guess you can take a shot at Real Union. Fun save but tight budget. Good luck

I've tried a few International saves with the WC and all but they haven't stuck. Back to business with a new long term save now. I've a few tactical ideas buzzing around focusing on a strong midfield (and weak up front) so it would be nice if the team has one of those. I'm looking at Tottenham Hotspurs/ Roma but they may be a little too strong for a long term save. Throw some teams at me please chaps!

Sao Paulo maybe but you can also try Genoa for a long term save.

There's long term and there's long term with a Brazilian save! I'm not sure that I have the time for all those games. Genoa is a good shout, bang in the middle of Serie A. Potential to over achieve and challenge for Europe but a challenge to reach the very top. Still maybe a little too strong but I'll check them out. Thanks.

I've been playing for 6 or 7 seasons with England and I got bored of it because I don't like the quality of their regens. I'm guessing Brazil has better regens so I wanna start with them. Which leagues should I load to find most of them? it's not like with England where english leagues are enough. Portuga, Spain? Do I need other american leagues?

Load Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Brazil, Argentina, USA, Mexico.

Villarreal has some decent youth coming in. I also think you can do some good with Parma/Atalanta with their youth system.

I'm looking for a team with the potential to grow, with a few things in place like a decent stadium or facilities, but to still have some building to do. English lower leagues would be preferable but nothing lower than League One. For example teams like Bradford City; great stadium and fan base but lacking in other infrastructure and personnel.

They're not league 1 (I don't think so anyway) but Shrewsbury Town have a good stadium for the level they're in just needs a decent manager and some shrewd signings.

They were relegated this year but are still in League One in the game, just! Decent shout, a few decent players, what is their average gate? I might be tempted to go just a little higher though, not sure if I have it in me to take a relegation candidate upwards. I'm a slow player and time is precious these days.

Racing Santander in the 3rd division could suit you. Also Vasco de Gama, Independiente, maybe you could fare well with Red Bull Brasil in Serie C

AaB in Denmark would suit you well. Big fish in a small pond already with some youth coming in. You'll have to spend some budget to get rid of some player's low release clauses first, tho!

I think I'm looking for around the same thing (big fish, not biggest pond), but perhaps not being the biggest fish right away (like an Ajax) but perhaps a team poised to take over the "big fish" role.

Feyenoord is a potential big fish. Decent finances but great youth coming in and doing the business

You could fare well with Roma. Totti can be a great enganche and De Rossi and Bradley can fit the regista role

As far as I'm concerned, Norwich doesn't have the greatest strikers in the world. They have some youth coming in but your strikerless tactic could do well.

They're one of a few teams I've been looking at in England along with West Brom, West Ham and Derby. I'm sure we can think a little outside of the box on this one though, I'm not restricted on where I'd want to manage. For example a poorer league rather than the very top ones would mean more of a challenge to build up those facilities needed to create the next La Masia. I'm just musing on possibilities here really.

I also play strikerless in my ManUtd save and in my humble opinion it's best to create a strikerless squad from scratch instead of looking for a club with a squad that suits strikerless football as well as possible. It certainly takes some time to get rid off unwanted players and to bring in / develop suitable players, but it is also far more rewarding.

England: Blackburn or Ipswich

Selection to choose from. With the right skills, can easily avoid relegation without too much trouble. English team are more mid table based for Championship.

Hope those give you some challenge.

Racing Santander?

In the 3rd Division in Spain and a squad that should easily win the league without needing to sign anyone and should even challenge for back to back promotions. Good facilities, a few young players who can start straight away and I've had a few decent regens from the academy already. Finances isn't great but the board usually inject some cash to keep things going or you could sell off one or of your high value players.

You should have a go at Brescia. Have some good youth already coming in and you can make them beasts.

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