Interesting teams with a ready squad to play 352? Bonus if that team got an awesome trequartista.

Lazio Roma

Did you get this going? I am considering them myself, but I am having a hard time not envying Benfice and their wonderkids, and I am quite torn between the two clubs.

Braga might be an interesting save. They have some promising young players and you can always pick them up from other Portuguese clubs too. I reckon you could overhaul Sporting Lisbon soon enough.

Hey guys.

 

I am also torn b/w the following: 

Atalanta......the little Ajax of Italy with an amazing attacking football style.

Ajax....a great philosophy at the club...never stops being just amazing.....with a great name....since i am Greek

Sporting CP.....also a club with a fantastic youth academy.....long time to win the title and make a difference in Europe.

Lastly, Torino......great history......el sistema tactic......a very good youth academy.

 

Any suggestions guys, would be really appreciated....so as to start a new save!!!!!

Anyone guys???

I plan on doing a Sporting save while taking a break from my PSG one.

Atlanta are doing fantastic this season IRL so you can try replicate that, Torino would be a good one too trying to de-throne your city rivals- I have Belotti in my PSG save and he is lethal with the right service.

I tend to use Ajax always at the start. After around 6-8 months I tend to move on to another save/team or keep playing.

Thanks. What kind of budget did you get for season 2? Is there enough money to improve the squad? If I do go Leverkusen, I would like to build my team around Havertz so keeping him happy will be the most important and going by what you have said, will be the easiest. It helps that he's a Leverkusen supporter I guess. 

Not sure on the exact amount, but it was between the 25 and 40 million. I'll check the exact amount when I can.

2 premier league games far with Man City and I'm already getting tired of my save :( It's too easy!

I desperately need a good save! I want a team outside the big 5 (Spain, England, Italy, Germany and France) to start my clubhopping career with and work myself up as a manager.

Any suggestions for a fun team to start with?

Well...the thing is that outside the big 5...there is hardly any challenge......unless you choose a league...like portugal or holland and pick a medium....smallish team

I don't mind choosing a subtopper/mid-table team in any league! Maybe I should consider the big 5 leagues as well then, as there are more fun options..

@BadAss88 Tromsø. I don't think they've ever won the top league in Norway although they've had a couple of cup wins, and bringing success to the Arctic Circle is a cool idea. If you want journeyman then doing well with them probably gets you into contention for the likes of Molde, Malmo, Midtjylland etc.

@BadAss88 Maybe AZ? They have a lot of talented players but they always fail to challenge the traditional top three, always falling short against them.

Maybe even Vitesse, who had lots of ambition years ago when a close friend of Abramovich took over. There's also their affiliation with Chelsea left over from that time.

i am more of a fun to choose one of the big 5 leagues and take a teal with some kind of history but currently underachieving...i think is more challenging like this.....since most of all the other leagues is just 2-3 horse race....usually

If you are looking for a challenge domestically, take Cukaricki or Vojvodina.

Oh well just sacked as Newcastle for the second time on fm19 after been mid table following the takeover. Fancy giving league 1 or the championship a go and building. 

Any so called smaller teams in them leagues with some good youth players who have the potential to make the premier league in a few seasons. I'm fancying Luton Charlton or Barnsley

That's exactly why I haven't given Newcastle a proper go. 

I hear majority getting owners who want Champions league or nothing

Yeah that's me done with Newcastle until fm20 now. 

I want a few more saves on fm19 then I will give it a rest for a while ready for fm20.

I want a league 1/championship save. A European project/get the Spurs job then on my last one treat myself to a top team and a international team. 

Only thing with a league 1 team is if you make it to the pl the big 6 are just too good and too rich to ever achieve anything? I haven't got the spare time to put daysupon days in to do 10 seasons etc

The Eredivisie is the most easy. Lost only once (matchday 32/34) with a backup team. Walked the league.

I've got an AZ game on the go. Only signing Dutch players. Finished 5th I think first season, then 2nd the season after. Ajax are littered with wonderkids but I was able to win titles with AZ in FM18 so I'm confident I can catch them. AZ have a great youth system and there are plenty of Dutch kids coming through each year from smaller clubs you can pick up. Only snag so far is that I lost Boadu on a release fee.

One thing I haven't actually done properly this year. Done a small time as USA manager in my MLS save and France U23 manager in my Dortmund save but I haven't gone more then a season with an International team due to the USA one getting corrupt and the U23 job being just for the Olympics.

I still think FM are missing a trick with the International game, I know you don't get much time with International management to train the squad but if were able to do it for even the week or setup a summer camp.

Also IFIRC you can't play any friendlies before finalising your final tournament squad which annoyed me.

As i'm doing my Sporting save as Luis Figo I may try for the Portugal job should it come about.

I think I narrowed it down to Dortmund, Leipzig, Frankfurt, Valencia, Roma, Lyon and Wolves.

I think I'm not going to pick Wolves, since none of my targets seem to want to join. Frankfurt just solely for Jovic, but in my Leverkusen game, they didn't sign him, so I guess if I want him I could get him second season for other clubs with some luck.

GUess that leaves Dortmund, Leipzig, Roma, Valencia and Lyon. But then I'd also love to take a shot with Bilbao!

Perhaps a rebuilding of Chelsea or Man United? Even though I feel that would be more suited to a big team last save.

There are quite a lot of interesting teams and scenarios/philosophies to use on this year's edition for me. It's too hard to choose!

I just started a save with Lyon and it is really enjoyable. Very good youth system...coaches....very  solid base to start off and with careful planning and clever selling the club could go all the way to the top. I just hope it wont become too easy of a save.

As i wrote on the last page.

 

What about AS Roma? 

They have alot of talent. Pellegrini x 2, Zaniolo, Cengiz Ünder, Kluivert, Schick.. They have okay money, not rich but not poor aswell.. It is also a fallen giant. Italian capital, and a big stadium.

Nah, I'm going to finish season 2, but I'm constantly flip-flopping. Then I enjoy it so much I feel I could put in another 10 seasons. Other times I can't see myself reaching beyond season 2 and a half.

Roma seems a solid shout, yeah. Good young talents and their aging squad makes for an interesting project as far as replacing goes.

Can anyone help suggest a team for me?

 

In the top 5 leagues (England, Spain, Italy, France, Germany), decent finances (not massive debt, enough to sign a player or two), good youth facilities, okay but not amazing squad (maybe a good wonderkid or two), not necessarily title challengers. Any ideas?

After playing a few seasons with Brøndby - Nordic players only i stopped playing FM since last month .

I'm looking for a new challenge. I know i'll only have time for 4/5 season till the new FM arrives so i'm looking for a team in second or third division , outside of the top 5 leagues .

OR a 'big' club in a small country (like TNS in Wales ) .

No more 'basque or nordic only' for me , on this FM.

I'm not worried about using a slightly bigger team, my favourite save last year was with Juventus!

As a classic fallen giant (albeit they haven't fallen that far in the grand scheme of things) type of save this is a real obvious one this year with the change of ownership. Finances will be good, solid squad! A great opportunity for someone who has maybe dabbled with the bigger clubs in the game and wants more of a challenge, without making it too difficult for themselvesTutuapp 9Apps ShowBox

Looking for a new lower league save and don't want to grind through the long England seasons so thinking Scotland where I have had some enjoyable saves in the past. Eyeing up Raith Rovers in the third tier - they have the facilities to be a Premiership club and I like the idea of growing a big club in Fife, who have not had a Scottish champion before despite being one of the more populated areas of the country.

Any other ideas for teams at a similar level but with some decent facilities?

Hi,

I need help to make a new save. My last one was Sunderland, and I made it to premier league (in 3 years).

I like teams from the second or third division that are able to make to the 1st division without to much effort or luck.

 

I think about:

- Sheff United

- Hamburg

- Osasuna

 

Any other suggestion? 

 

 

Regards.

I've been burned on this years FM as had some tragedies.

Upon BETA/release I had a great Hearts save to try topple Celtic which I accomplished and after 9 years I was starting to seriously compete in Europa after going out of Champs League in group stage but my laptop died and had to get a new one so lost the save.

New laptop, new save, new team.

Raith Rovers in League 1 with the same goal as my previous. After 13 years I was on to FINALLY take top spot from Celtic when I attempted to install a custom database for a separate save and ended up somehow corrupting my entire game and had to reinstall everything and lost the save.

Been playing as Fort William with the lower league Scottish custom DB but after all my heartache struggling to get into it especially with most of my team leaving end of each season as I have no money.

 

Question:

What's the quality of football in German third division compared to Scotland? Is it comparable to Scottish Championship?

Nothing to do with your choices but just a few tips: Use auto saves, ideally 3 files, and use the cloud.

Great save Raith Rovers.

Had 13 great years there and they have some great players there already. Valentine, Watson, Gillespie, Vaughan, Nisbet, Crane, Wedderburn all great with Vaughan in particular a smash when I hit the Premiership.

I do, normally 2 files though and I was saving in the cloud file yet when it happened both times no save was there. Heartbroken.
