I am looking for a new save and I'm between La Liga and the bundesliga. 

I don't want Bayern, Dortmund, Real Madrid or Barcelona. 

So far I'm between Schalke, Bayer Leverkusen, RB Leipzig, Valencia, Atletico Madrid and Villareal. 

Any help on who to go would be much appreciated.

Atletico, Valencia , Leipzig are superb teams.

Has to be Leverkusen for me. 

I have already grown bored of Villarreal. 

Any suggestions in Italy, Spain or Germany with reasons why would be helpful.

@Ewan0404 Again, I would definitely recommend Leverkusen.

They have a great young squad including Havertz, Bailey, Tah, Palacios and a few more. Unbelievably they have never won the Bundesliga in their history, losing it on the last day two times! They could have won the treble in 2002 and ended up winning nothing.

I want to start (tonight) with a team from a special region (for example Bilbao from Basque or Ibiza from Balearen regio or a team from the island Madeira) with a story . Not a topteam but in the 2th level(third is also possible ). I'm looking to emulate the Basque policy to a team from a nice region :

Before i can start i have to search / find all the cities located in the region .. i have to give them a tag ( for example [Balearen]*City in the editor.

e2454bb1c04c242b2874f10c6e4b8ba2.png
 

By doing that i can create player search and scouting filters and i only have to select them once (by searching for the tag and select those cities) .

Rules are :

*Only sign players from that region.

*Or players homegrown from teams in that region.

*Sell / don't use all the players in the starting squad that are not born in the region OR i could choose to keep them till their contract run out. Or i can choose for using them till they retire / want to leave to add some realism.

 

I'm looking to emulate the Basque policy to a team from a nice region :

*A team with a story , not the biggest team from the region.

I thought about Ibiza (but they don't have any player from the Balearen in their first squad) , about Partrick Thistle (glasgow region) , about teams in Sardinia or Sicily but those regions are to big.

*A team with a few homegrown players because otherwise the challenge would be almost impossible.

*A team with lower expectations (not Bilbao for example).

*A relegation candidate in 1th tier or team in 2th or 3th tier.

*Region can't have more then 100-150 cities, otherwise the editing would take ages.

Been playing like this for 3 editions now, with moderate to low success. My biggest achievements came from playing in Banat in my native Romania, but was a bit harder in Italy or Spain.

My suggestions:

Spain 2 - Deportivo A Coruna (Galicia)

Spain 3 - Gimnastic de Tarragona (Catalunya)

Italy 2 - Crotone (Calabria)

Germany 2 - Bochum (Ruhr Region)

Galicia is not that big to edit (151 cities) but i prefer Italy . Didn't thought about Calabria so thanks for the good option.

Edit : just noticed that their are +450 cities .. so would cost me a lot of time editing them

What do u think about Viitorul Constanta ? The fourth biggest region , close to the sea . With Hagi as their manager/owner and Popescu as Chairman. I could edit Hagi as HOYD and start with them? Only sign players from Constanta (only 43 cities i have to edit) and youth.  And my grand grandparents came from Romania , it would be some kind of tribute.

Not sure you will find a pool of players big enough there, surely around 50 its all you are going to get. But they do have some of the best facilities in the country. At the moment I am playing on the Romanian forum with just players from Bucharest and it is a bit easier.

Speaking of Italy, pretty sure not all the setlements in a region are actually in game. I usually went for the biggest 100 and that covers up pretty good the players pool (sure, you might miss some but on the long run doesnt mattet much). If you want to have them all, could always go for a smaller region like Umbria (Perugia) or Abruzzo (Pescara). 

I would be interested to read about your career either way u chose, as its similar to my struggles. Best regards!

Thanks, your tips about choosing the biggest cities in a big region are very welcome but i picked Viiturol / North Dubruja only . I'm going to post about it later .

How is your game in Bucharest going, who are u playing ?

Edited the regions + added Hagi as a HOYD till 2030 :)

They have fantastic set of young players and facilities like u mentioned . I find 122 players +- 33 trained at viitorul if i do a quick search at the start of the game.

1860 Munich would be a good save imo as well as Kaiserslautern.

Bastia-Borgo in France 3 - could you bring success to Corse?

Leiria in Portugal 3 - a huge stadium and a former first division club.

Monza in Italy 3 - you have Berlusconi as your owner.

Sochaux are in the second tier but always develop a huge number of good young players.

I'm looking for a new save after I grew bored with my Roma one after winning every prize convincingly. I'm also planning another save for after, which will be a big team save until fm21 drops.

Germany: Dortmund (Knock off Bayern while keeping your young stars), RB Leipzig (Building history with them), Bayern (Rebuild them and get back home European glory.)

England: Manchester United (Rebuild and make them a force again), Manchester City (Youth challenge and give them a proper identity), Chelsea (Transfer embargo and a youth challenge as well), Arsenal (Make them a force again in general), Liverpool (Kinda just my annual save. Nothing else much.), Norwhich (Have some good prospects and seem interesting to turn into a topflight club using those prospects.)

Portugal: Porto (Try to dethrone Benfica. They have a less good youth than Benfica but Fabio Silva is a don.)

Spain: Real Madrid (Build your Galacticos. Take young promising players and turn them into stars.), Barcelona (Make use of La Masia and rebuild the first team.)

France: PSG (Home-grown/Youth challenge with Mbappe as the face.), Lyon (Maintaining their real life business model while also bringing in silverwork), Lille (Exciting prospects and it'll be interesting to see if it can be built on continuously.)

If anyone got any other clubs with challenges, I'd love to hear it. Open to suggestions.

Hi everybody,

 

I'm looking for a lower league save but the team must have at least a 11-15 rating on youth facilities, junior coaching and youth recruitment. Don't care what country it is.

Only one stipulation. No teams that have fallen because of bad financial management i.e Kaiserslautern, 1860 Munich, Palermo etc.

If there are no teams in the lower reaches of any country that have those facilities, then I would take a team from a top league in a low reputation country.

 

Thanks in advance.

Yeah I have looked at all these teams but not found anything that made them stand out from each other. Might just pick a team and go with it then.

I am looking for a new save and I am looking for advice.

I am torn between Genk, Porto, Sporting Lisbon, Malmo and open to other suggestions from non top 5 leagues in Europe.

Any advice and reasons for choosing said team will help a lot. Thanks.

Having just bought the game (Yeah, very late for the party), I'm currently halfway through season one with AFC Ajax. My thought was, choosing a big team would make it easier to play with all the new features.

When my Ajax save finishes, I have a handfull of teams I really want to try out:

England: Derby

France: Montpellier

Germany: Werder Bremen

Spain: Valencia and Celta Vigo

Italy: Genoa and AC Milan

I was thinking about Panathinaikos. Had a great save with them some 8 years ago. 

Does anyone know the rules about foreigners in the Greek League? (Non-EU, I mean).

Not that I know of. The images I took were more for foreign & EU rules so I guess there might be end of season shenanigans and I cut them off - but I don't think so. 

I've got similar pages for Turkey, Norway and Cyprus too if you're considering any of them. Plus I have parked games in Poland and Sweden where I could get the rule images if you ask very nicely :lol:

Well there you go then, case closed. Greek rules aren't that bad, it's harder with foreign player limits than non-EU limits in my opinion.

The league does break into two. Top 6 will play in the championship group while the bottom 8 will fight to avoid relegation. In both cases, teams will play the other teams in their respective group home and away.

Ipswich. Try to bring them back to the PL and overtake Norwich. It's a real challenge. No money, no sponsor income, high expectations, very good youth though. Having a lot of fun with it myself but it's going to be a process and the first 2-3 seasons are tough. But if you get to the PL, you can improve quickly.

Hi, I wan to start a new save and I'm between a big team of a non major league or a mid table team of a major league.

I was thinking in teams like Dinamo Zagreb, Dinamo Kiev, PSV or teams like Stade Rennais and Real Sociedad.

Is there any sub-top teams that has some money to spend at the start of a save? In the region of £20 mil?

It doesn't seem any team has any money, even those marked as "Secure" under finances. I'm guessing you have to be Chelsea, Man Utd / City, PSG and so on, just to get a small penny.

Ajax starts with around £60 mil, but that amount drops significantly over the next seasons.

Your best options would probably be Dynamo Moscow, Genk or Salzburg who all shoul have around 20m Euro. Or Benfica a lot more around 60 but that might be to big of a club for your liking.

P.S. There's always China if you care for the league, 3-4 clubs with generous budgets.

I guess it gets better in the second season onwards for the richer/bigger clubs... It just seems even the rich clubs start with under £20 mil (except Chelsea). 

But yeah, I guess it gets better.

Hi need some help on picking a team. I Play on stadia (which suffers from a random bug which affects saving) and had a great save going with Warrington town, I was in the championship until it refused to save/load which has sort of ruined fm for me. I have been unable to get into a single save since. I’ve tried not playing for a week and tried various teams but I just can’t get into a save :(

Looking for a team in France, Italy or Spain. Either a second division side or a top division side that is expected to finish in the bottom half.

Looking for a team that got a good youth set up and some interesting young players. Contemplating Sochaux, Sporting Gijon and Bologna, would appreciate other recommendations

I'm seeking suggestions to either a Eastern European club with some nice youth prospects and perhaps some history, or an MLS club. I haven't tried the MLS before on FM. Is the draft at all manageable if you haven't tried it before?

In the Relegation group in Greece they only place once. The higher ranking teams get more home advantages.
