Pretty sure I'll start at Le Havre in France as I normally do. St Pauli is another possibility though 

Just going to force out Bob Bradley like that? That's messed up :D

I'm going to start with either Real Madrid or Benfica. Hope the researchers recognized Marco Asensio's talent and potential :cool:

NK Maribor, Salernitana, Darmstadt, Paris FC, Burton Albion, Arouca, Sassuolo, Malmo, Kosovo NT, Swaziland NT, Canada NT, Iceland NT, Kyrgyzstan NT, Ireland NT are all interesting options for me. Maribor will certainly be my starting point.

I usually do a Roma save. This year I might try Havre in France or Rercreativo de Huelva in Spain.

Once you get used to having 12 subs like in Italy it is hard to go back though. So good for having some youth getting some game time when you have a solid lead.

Always start with Manchester United just to get my head around the new game, then I'll start with a team from L1/L2 and work up.

Newcastle or Villa appear to be the obvious choices this year. Quite interested to see what they do with Milan given they've just been taken over. Will they be given the necessary tools to mount a resurgence? If so, I can see that being an enjoyable option.

I always start with Man Utd in the 2 week beta just to get a feel for the game. Then I think I'm gonna start a save with Blackpool. They've fallen quickly down the leagues. Not so long ago they were in the EPL. Gonna task myself with getting them back up there and winning a trophy or two.

I've already planned my beta team - NYCFC (I said that I'd do a save with them sometime if they followed me back, so I've gotta keep up my promise)

Newcastle would be a nice project, Marseille's an interesting one. Or I might just do a Wimbledon save or something like that. Undecided yet!

I'll probably choose a team for the dafuge challenge. Last year, I chose Kettering Town F.C.

Arsenal is usually a fun test save for me. Will dabble in managing Oxford United as well out of curiousity but after a week or so I'll start my usual unemployed realistic journeyman save.

Manchester United, Salford and Sassuolo. 

Maybe start with United to get a feel for the ME and new features. Salford will be a fun save to try and build them up and get to the PL and then Sassuolo is a nice option in Serie A. Berardi. :cool:

A totally virtual team I create in every game, in a French lower league, after an update which add the 4th and 5th level (CFA and CFA2).

Am thinking of:

Dundee United (Recently relegated bring them back to previous glory)

Newcastle United (Such a good squad for the championship, would love to bring them back up and rebuild the club)

Leeds United (Crazy last 15 years - time to get them back)

I have had amazing games in Belgium (Club Brugge), France (Stade Rennes) and Holland (Ajax) and also Leyton Orient.

Have never really managed in Italy, Spain or Germany so tempted to give one of  those leagues a crack in FM17.

Rangers as per usual then will probably move onto a save in England. More than likely with a Championship club, Villa or someone similar maybe!

My first long term save will be with Villa. I'll also do a lower league challenge with Salford City maybe.

I would also like to manager RB Leipzig and I do like a save in Croatia (either Dinamo or Hadjuk)

AFC Fylde - achieve success in their new stadium and poach Blackpool's alienated fanbase in the process!

Interesting article about them here: http://inbedwithmaradona.com/journal/2016/4/14/fylde

After reading this very interesting article I had a good look at the current Conference North results and table. What a competitive division, just one promotion place and ten teams with an average home gate of at least 1050. I think I will have to start FM2017 at this level but not sure with which team as there are many good options.

I normally manage the club I support, Sheff Utd, but I did nearly 1000 hours on that this year and don't think I'll have the motivation to do that again.

I'm currently doing the Dafuge challenge but on IPad (Touch version) and I'm loving the save so far. I'll probably do the same on FM17.

I will play an Career and start unemployed. Playable leagues will be :  France, Italy, Germany, England, Spain, Croatia, Poland and two other countries i dont know yet. Then i will start with low reputation manager and take the job i get. It will be a longterm save and i hope to win the Champions League and the end.

Hartlepool. See if I can go from League Two to the Champions League in 6 seasons.

Nice would be interesting, since Balotelli almost certainly will be as overrated as usual.

I think I'm going to apply Eric Cantona's following quote to the game:

"France doesn't deserve Auxerre, only England deserves Auxerre".

I will add AJ Auxerre into the Sky Bet Championship and show England what Burgundy is made of.

Start off with Newcastle or Villa and bring them back up or Juventus as I've not managed in Italy since the CM days to get a feel for the game in the beta. Once the game is fully released I'll start a long term save with Spurs like this season and make them a force. I'll do a journey man save too where I'll start with a league 2 club, get them promoted, move onto a championship club, then a low level PL club before jumping to a big club in Europe

I'm tempted by Hull. It should be a challenge to keep them up and there is plenty of scope to build up the squad.

I'll probably wait untill someone uploads some lower leauge databases, then start unemployed and see which bottom league team wants me. Probably Britain, Germany or Scandinavia. The new setup of the Dutch leagues might tempt me to take a local amateur club to the top (if such database is available).

going to do something I've never done before, Going to start with the mighty Hammers and stay on one career. I usually load one for West Ham and another in Europe, sometimes a 3rd to get a lower league team promotion to the prem... all takes time so going for a 1 save see how far I can go.

I will probably start at man utd until i get used to any changes (this may happen in the beta rather than full game) then i will do a oxford save as its my hometown club and then i will start a unemployed save to last until the next FM :cool:

As usual,

I Will start with Marseille in L1, as usual 

But on this version, there will be more excitement:

-Starting squad should be weak, with few established players and even fewer prospects

BUT

The club Had been taken over IRL in the last days of August by an american billionaire  (the deal will be seal in mid october at maximum), which means that We will be able to compete with the french big boys (PSG most of all) and i really look forward to try that!

I Will surely end up with some midtable team in Europe as well to créate some Leicester legacy ?

My home town team Hapoel Be'er Sheva they have Europa league real life and just beat inter 2-0 will be tough to do better than that

Leicester, with a massive transfer budget and Champions League football!

After that, possibly Schalke, who I always seem to have a save with and then a journeyman save around Europe.

Im a Liverpool fan so will prob use them in the demo just to get used to things, Arsenal may be fun also

Defo gonna do a championship save prob with Newcastle they defo dont deserve the championship, Im waiting for Leeds to lose Cellino irl before i do them

Prob AFC Wimbledon at one point try to get them back up to the prem

Had a fun save with Ajax last year and will prob do them again this year, haven't won the league in 2 seasons and the squad is worse so should be good fun

Marseille and Valencia, both massive clubs who have become mid-table teams in the last few years. Both have terrible squads and massive fanbases, what more do you want?

A save in Italy as usual, maybe Napoli for a few seasons just to finally win the league and maybe Milan as well (always had a soft spot for them)

Dynamo Moscow - One of the most popular and succesful teams in Russian history, the club of the best gk in history Lev Yashin, havent won the league since 1976 and got relegated for the first time in their history last season 

Rangers FC - my dads team finally back where they belong, cant wait to finally win that elusive CL..

Paris FC - got relegated down to the National and i want to build a Parisien team focused on Parisien talent

Might do Stuttgart, got relegated last year despite being one of the most successful German teams, Hamburg could be fun

Then South America! always fun, thinking Boca Juniors as they are still 5 titles behind their big rivals, did poorly last season and started this season poorly and a club 

A team in Brazil not decided who yet and maybe nacional from uruguay and america de cali who have the 3rd most colombian titles but are in league 2

Finally will go back to my roots and manage in the Balkans, Red Star Belgrade are my team and might attempt to win the CL again though Partizan are a shambles so that could be fun

Maybe Hajduk Split, Olimpia Ljubljana or Borac Banja Luka

 

Obviously this is like 20 teams and i will be lucky to find the time to even manage half of them but you never know!

First off either Peterborough or Man Utd, then once the editor forum starts to fill up and a lower league file is available, I'll hop to Havant and Waterlooville who now reside in the Isthmian league. After that who knows.

Used to play with Wycombe and Southend in the original Championship Manager games, making them forces in Europe. Haven't played with them since then so I will do that with this years version, and then of course playing with New York Cosmos and Ottawa Fury in a USA/Canada pyramid edit, making them the two best teams in the world.

I'll play as the team I support - Dundalk FC. See if I can go one better than we did IRL and get into the Champions League group stages.

Usually always just do a Brighton save but I think this year its time for a change and will start with a team at the bottom and see how far I can get. So maybe Sutton Utd or Eastbourne.
