FM15: What Team Should I Be?

Recommended Posts

RB Leipzig. I'm just giving them a chance. 3.5m transfer budget, great facilities, 43k stadium, bunch of youth prospects (Kimmich - german woderkid to name one). The only drawback is being an affilate to Red Bull Salzburg but I didn't have a problem with them so far. They are predicted to finish 10th of 18 teams.

On it. Cheers :thup:

Nation: preferably Europe (outside UK/Ireland), but open to ideas

Division: Top division or decent potential to be promoted

European Competition: Any

Media Prediction/ Board Expectations: Not too sure

Transfer Budget/Wage Budget/Finances: Some leeway would be nice, but not too important

Other: No dodgy/corrupt owners!

I've had a long break from Football Manager. My last game was Football Manger 2011, where I had a good career with Shaktar Donetsk. This was the first time I hadmanaged outside England,and I really enjoyed it. So I want to manage abroad again, because I'm a bit bored of English football in real life. Would prefer Europe, but open to ideas.

I've started many games over the years (including since FM11) , only got past first season handful of times. What I want is to feel an emotional connection to my team, a reason to win. Whether it's a fallen giant, up and coming club, the city, the stadium - i want to feel something for them. Want something new and exciting.

I'm keen on the Bundesliga and Russian leagues due to family/friends, not keen on italian or spanish leagues. But the most important thing is the club, not the league.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, especially as I'm hopeless at choosing times myself! Thank you

I've just started my 2nd season with Bayern Munich and I know it was an easy team to pick but I must say i'm having fun doing it. Not only because of winning, which obviously helps, the clubs has very good finances, the board are brilliant, but the most enjoyable part is incorporating the youngsters that they have. Although they aren't the best, they do a decent job in the first team squad especially as I've sold Robben now and I no longer use Ribery. I've also tried to buy more Germans and build up the amount of players I have trained in nation. Although you don't start with much money to spend, injuries make you use what you have at the club too.

Probably one of my most enjoyable saves i've had on any version of football manager. I'd recommend making a save with them.

Hope this helps

Throwing out Cadiz as a suggestion. Excellent youth academy and facilities, big stadium, probably a good enough squad to stay up in La Liga... but they're in Spain's third tier. Lots of room to sell-to-buy, no European football for at least three seasons, could be challenging to keep hold of your best players, could be hard to poach kids from other clubs. Seems like a decent project club; I started a save with them before I got sidetracked by Aston Villa and now Dumbarton.

Thanks the ideas! I decided to go with Lyon in France, but I will come back to La Liga/Bundsliga at some point (Cadiz sounds really good long-term)

The link above has everything you asked for crestofdave.

I was thinking of Sassuolo due to my love for Berardi, any idea how easy it is to outbid Juve for his co-ownership?

Any other decent suggestions?

Depends on the season he has I guess, he did have a good season in my save and come bidding time I did not have a lot of money to spend.

I decided to bid 3m, which was half his value but was all I really had to spare, I was expecting something like 20m from Juve but they only bid 1.9m so he stayed with us. :)

Palermo might be an option for you. They got some money to burn and you just have to keep them up but be aware of their crackheaded chairman

@Juventus maybe FCUM in the league below the skrill north will suit you. You might have to download the database to get them, tho

Any suggestions for a lower league team with a good youth setup, high reputation, big stadium and decent finances who can get promoted back-to-back? Ideally as far down as possible, 3-4-5-6th tier, I don't mind installing extra files. Ideally not England.

If you want a team with a clear identity look no further than Swansea. No matter who the opposition they always look to play possession football. Not afraid to play out from the back and work their way into scoring opportunities. This identity is run through all the youth teams in real life. Check out this 32 pass goal by the under 18's last season

Club: Swindon Town

Division: Sky Bet League 1

Transfer Budget: £250,000

Wage Budget: Can't remember probably just under £40,000 pw

Finances: Okay

Board Expectation(s): Mid table

Key Players: Massimo Luongo, Nathan Thompson and Yaser Kasim

Pros: With the squad you will inherit, you should be aiming a lot higher than mid table.

Cons: Not a lot of room to maneuver with the wage budget unless you sacrifice some of the transfer budget which is probably the best thing to do, not the most in depth squad will struggle with a few injuries if you have a blank transfer window.

Level of Difficulty (1-10 with 10 being difficult): 4

Additional Information: The club already have 4 loans when you start I recommend only one or two more loan signings. You will need to get a lot of backroom staff as there is virtually no one to start off with.

You should go for Anderlecht buddy. That is who I am at the moment. Minimum expectation is to come in the top half of the table. You only get around 850k transfer budget but you have a very good squad and the potential to make some bucks by selling Mitrovic & Tielemans and others. Good youth facilities and a sleeping giant in Europe. A little bit of debt so you have to be astute with your signings but it is all part of the challenge. Trying to make a real force with Anderlecht in Europe is really fun and challenging. DO IT MAN YOU WONT REGRET IT
