Teams you will never manage and why

Dirty moneybags teams that are helping to kill football - City, PSG, Chelsea

Clubs with loads of Nazi fans - I'll pick Roma over Lazio, Chievo over Hellas Verona

Clubs with dull or cumbersome names and colours, unless there's something else about them. UFK-58 or whatever with a generic blue and white kit, no thanks. Aldershot no, Yeovil yes.

Clubs who are expected to have immediate success

...and Sunderland
 

Sankt Pauli is the team for you!

I'll manage anyone really..

Yes I know! Yet somehow I never end up there. Usually start careers in some obscure backwater and try to job-hop my way to eventually landing at Newcastle or at least someone big. Might try to stop off there along the way next time

I usually tend to avoid really big clubs and rich clubs. OSG, Monaco, Man City, Chelsea. I once managed Man City, they offered me a contract. But it was no fun managing them. Usually I take smaller clubs but still near the top like  bayer 04 Leverkusen, Liverpool FC, etc.

Lol, smaller clubs, then name probably the best club of the moment who happened to win the CL last season.

LOL indeed.  I have no idea in which planet Liverpool would be considered a smaller club!

Yes, I know until these last couple of seasons they've been poor compared to the team which dominated the 19780's and 1980's, but in my lifetime at least Liverpool have never been in the "smaller club" category.  We're talking a team who hasn't finished outside of the top half of England's top division since 1962 for heaven's sake.  Literally, their worst finish in that time is 8th.

I'm a Spurs fan. I also have a soft spot for Newcastle, for family reasons, and Sheffield Wednesday, as I've lived in Sheffield for a long time now. So my three least favourite teams in England are Arsenal, Sunderland and Sheffield United. All of them play in red and white... so I won't manage any team that has red as their main colour, and I'll never sign a player that has previously been on Arsenal's books. 

Now that I've typed that out it does seem a little silly... them's the rules though!

Most big teams, as many as have said, due to money, lack of a challenge and I just don’t find it interesting.

Luton, Cambridge, Oxford, non-league Woking.

My in-game character is enough of a mercenary to be available to manage anything. :D 

I've never considered managing Benfica or Sporting, though!

Man Utd, mostly because I've grown up seeing them dominate so I'd rather not dominate with them :D 

Every other club open too if it's an open career save.

Portsmouth because Southampton fan.

Liverpool and Man Utd because I don't particularly like them as clubs, but especially because of all the glory hunter fans around for those two, most of whom are complete plonkers. 

Chelsea and Man City because of money, though actually in current state I think Chelsea would be quite interesting. 

WBA, Stoke, Burnley, all for playing horrible boring football for long periods of my footballing memory. 

As someone else mentioned all the clubs with dodgy nazi linked or racist fans. 

Bayern, Real Sociedad and PSV/Feyenoord because they are rivals of my other teams to support Dortmund, Bilbao and Ajax. 

And generally most clubs that play in blue, that will put me off managing a club.

Do not want to burst your balloon. But Mackems are not Geordies!! Thus: when referring to the people, as opposed to the dialect, dictionary definitions of a Geordie typically refer to a native or inhabitant of Newcastle upon Tyne, England, or its environs, an area that encompasses Blyth, Ashington, North Tyneside, Newcastle, South Tyneside and Gateshead.

 

Mackems = Sunderland

Smoggies = Boro

 

However, like Dagenham Dave who is Scottish, and should no better, your both welcome to join me in supporting Newcastle!!!

I know. I never said Mackems were Geordies. I said I won't manage Sunderland or Boro because I'M A GEORDIE, not them. I do know these things, seeing as how I'm from the area:eek:
