FM15: What Team Should I Be?

Recommended Posts

Will stick my two pennies worth in for a team to recommend:

Club: Sheffield Wednesday

Division: English Championship

Transfer Budget: £0 (Zero, Nothing, nada)

Wage Budget: £190k (spending around £180k)

Finances: Stable, albeit a little shaky. Start off in debt but mostly to the present chairman (Milan Mandaric)

Board Expectation(s): Don't be outclassed too often (Avoid Relegation)

Key Players: Stevie May, Chris Maguire, Glenn Loovens, Keiran Westwood

Pros: Start off with a decent core, very easy to achieve minimum expectations, good youth players

Cons: No money to spend, you're stuck with what you have and the odd loan

Level of Difficulty (1-10 with 10 being difficult): 6

Additional Information: They're decievingly easy to get promoted with. I got to the Premier League in my first season. Typically the chariman is looking to sell, and they get taken over (as in real life) and when this happens you get plenty of money to spend and challenge quite easily for Champs League and even the premier league.

Also they're the famous Wednesday and clearly the best team in the country

Nation:England

Division: Conference Premier or League Two. League One at a push.

European Competition: N/A

Media Prediction: Doesnt really matter, would prefer not 1st.

Board Expectation(s): Doesnt Matter

Transfer Budget: Doesnt Matter

Wage Budget: Doesnt Matter

Finances: Would prefer not to be absolutely destitute but again its not massively important.

Other: Right, i got some specific needs so..........really want a team i can take up the divisions with me. I dont expect the whole squad to be able to play well 2/3/4 divs above but a good core group of at least 5 players that would cut it a few divisions above. If a team has a player or two that could make it in the premier then that would be a bonus. Ideally starting in the Conference Prem or League 2, not fussed what one, whatever has the best suited team in. If any. League 1 at a push but as i said i want a team i can keep together for the most part and take up the divisions.

Sorry for the long winded post, need something to get me into FM15. Thanks guys!

Lanus - have a very good squad, decent set up and, should you be feeling suicidal a 20m transfer budget. You can ether not spend anything and not risk financial meltdown and take it slowly OR use the 20m to bring in class players who ll make a real difference and try to win stuff pronto. If you fail you ll need to deal with deteriorating finances (same if you succeed actually but only for a couple of seasons).

One of the funnest saves Ive had onFM15!

Thanks buddy for the suggestion, i think league one is too high for me, really want to take this team up the divisions myself. Good suggestions of course, love the look of MK Dons. Shame.

MK Dons is actually a pretty good call. Or even Crewe Alexandra.

Yeah both MK Dons and Crewe would be good if for not them being league 1. Crewe especially seeing as they have that famed youth system.

Morecambe. I've dragged them to the Premier League in 3 seasons on a shoestring budget and have a very similar squad to the one I had in League 1. Jack Redshaw for example scored 22 goals in my League 2 campaign, 34 in League 1, 25 in the Championship and has 5 in 6 in the Premier League. He's a beast.

Board Expectation(s): Not important.

Transfer Budget: Not important.

Wage Budget: Not important.

Finances: Preferably not too much debt

Other: I'm looking for a team which has a young base to build on, and I would like the team to have some younger players with pace, so I can build a quick, vertical passing game. I've thought about Colchester, but really any suggestions are more than welcome.

depends on the toughness level you want.. Frankfurt is the one I would suggest. some great youngsters like Trapp have bags of potential.

Thinking about restoring a club to its heady glory days. So ideally I'd like a team with a bit of history and a nice big stadium so I can attract the fans back. Ideally not in the top division in it's country. Any European equivalents of Forest / Leeds Utd?

Thanks.

Pro Vercelli? Don't have a massive stadium but they've won a few league titles many moons ago. Real Murcia have a big stadium and were in La Liga about 10 seasons ago. Can't think of many others tbh.

Looking for a team far down the divisions in a big country with lots of potential to grow - like back-to-back promotions. Good facilities and finances a plus. They have to be at least in the 4th tier. Happy to install extension files for the leagues. Any ideas? Don't want Leipzig or Oviedo. Thanks guys!
