after i had enough playing with my favorite club (Dinamo) I spent some time wondering around trying to find a club which is fun to play.
I could find the club that would make me want to stay for more than a few months.
Eventually i got to German second division were I started with Hoffenheim. Its great, they are newly promoted team and the board doesn't have any expectations. I asked the board for extra funds and they have gave them to me (that's a first). The thing i find frustrating when managing a small team is little players willing to come to the club, but here even when you start in division 2 good players will come, for example Pablo Piatti, Sherman Cardenas and others. Some of the players in club that you get in start are really good. ( I sold Carlos Eduardo in my second season to Bayern for 9 mil and 45% next sale)

Anyway if you are in a quest for a good club this could be it for you.

Please write some of the clubs that you found fun to manage, so I could have a crack at it.
ipswich, i find it really fun, they always get good youngsters and all.

in fm 06/07 i used to play with cagliari as well, real fun that. havent tried much with fm 08.

just started a game with hartlepool, which is really nice because i can get reserve players from united, chelsea and the big teams, u know the ones the club really dont need for like 16k and all. and they are perfect for a league one side, plus that they will come to your club, and they got a bit of potential to be a championship player, so i think i can make a good game out of this.

PLUS that i can find good players for sweden for hartlepool :)

really nice game i started yesterday, will continue now as i got abit of time :):)
limited_edition u pravu si brate,mali klubovi su kur*c.

In FM07 i played with some Serbia Clubs(Napredak,Red Star)and last two seasons with Bayern.well,as limited_edition said , big clubs are great to manage,game is much easier.In Bayern i had two great seasons.

In FM08 i started with Coca-Cola League 2 side Barnet.well,they are nothing at start,weak team,but i play with them because i love them,watching them for over 5 years.
i am in season 2012-2013.i've entered Premier League,and it is very hard.i mean, i can stay clear of relegation,but not better than that,at least this season.of course it is hard to buy good players,'cause it seems that my reputation is still low,and there is no money.the good thing is that my board finally gave me option to send my scouts to other countries,as i am looking for new players with my scouts.Now i am not sure what to do,because i would like to manage some nation,but the question is about leaving Barnet.:con
omg 2013!!!

well, taking over a nation u can do quite much, "attending" games and all. so you got a bit more to do, so i wouldnt recommend going to a nation if u dont have the exact time for barnet as for the nation :p


but in barnet, have u gone to build on youngsters? i mean i usually get potentially alrite youngsters, i mean even though a PA of 160, thats good, you can sell em and get a bit of money as well.

i have a 20 year old with 169 in potential, he has been doing alrite, and all the big teams are after him now which is weird.

but thats the good thing in fm08 i find that even though some youngsters dont have massive PA, if they have good attributes and do well then they certainly are quite the players to have for urself and selling to get some money :)

might be too late for you to do it....hehe
well i never had some extra talented players.The most talented is Jiri Pokorny but his CA is about 135.

but listen this, my best scorer is Ryan Taylor with PA 120 and his CA never passed 112.He scored 105 goals in 5 seasons.about 0.5goals per game.
In Coca-Cola Championship for two seasons he scored 49 goals.He was better in Coca-Cola Championship than in Coca-Cola league 1 and Coca-Cola League 2.and in the last two seasons second strikers had better CA than Taylor's PA and these strikers scored less goals then Taylor.
one more proof that CA is not important.

about that youngsters,well i bought many youngsters,and they payed off.
i sell someone in almost every transfer window.of course not everyone turn out to be good.Scout said that they will improve in the future,but some of them did not,but there are many of them that was good.I had problems cause my board did not wanted to send my scouts outside the UK,and that fuc*ing work permits.in most cases i bought players for 0-50.000 and sold them for 300.000-700.000 or in last seasons i buy someone for 100.000-500.000 and i can sell them for a few milion,since ive entered Premier League.
But i found out that now i must buy great players if i am going to make something in this league,and that cost money.
well there is nothing wrong with putting around 3-5 million quid in ur fm game.

i mean seriously at times you dont have much money at all, its a bit unrealistic, put in so much that it is realistic and not cheating.

true that redarmy, sometimes its just annoying to see for how less some players are sold and other times to see for how much they are sold...

In my barca game i was in 2013 and menez was at inter reserves... THEY BOUGHT HIM FOR 51 mil euro!!!! :| i mean reserves common...

Then again i shouldnt complain i bought 2 players for a total of 130 milion euros that season :D.

But back on topic. I like playing with barcelona. Its not easy at all and if you also throw the second divisions open its real great to train your youngsters because barcelona 2 plays in a real division :). And well in the premiera division its not easy at all so its cool :).

Another great team is Cisco roma.

Start in serie C2C. 5 mil 2.5 mil transfer. For a serie C2 thats allot!

Ive entered C1 first season after play offs. Now im leading C1 with 1 lose 2 ties and 9 wins. And dominating in the Serie C cup with 5 wins and no losses. its fun because you can get cheap extremly talented regen players without much of a problem. And also normal players who would do well in Serie B or fight against regulation in Serie A. All youngsters though so they need training and lots of experience but it does the job in C2 and C1 :).

Only problem is you cant get any non-euro players, so sometimes i just cheat by giving those players without a club a EU passport for a moment. :p, just to annoying to see good players walk around with no team and you cant do anything about it :)
for everyone who want proper challenge by the way:

i started a game with hartlepool, money wasnt enough duh! so i added a bit of money and wages, but i have just bought 2-3 players from sweden, and loaned a few players. now thats nothing special.

but what is amazing is that i went to get coaches scouts and everything, and i got nearly 7 in all traning catogaries(in 2 i have 6), i cant have more coaches and its devistating because i could really do with 1-2 more.

but the thing is after i have brought in good coaches all the players attributes are going up, and i hartlepool got players with PA around 120 etc. and many started with around 85 and now are around 105-110. and thats really good, and i have started off by winning most of my games, drawn twice and once lost(to cardiff in the carling cup)

i might not make it to the premiership though, but its really fun to play with Hartlepool. and getting cheap players from sweden(get a swedish scout) is great. now i have a potentially championship team. and i think i might be able to win the JPT trophy and promtion. but then i might have to move onto another team.

forgot to add i got almeyda on a free :), he is great!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and campbell on loan brilliant!

anyways its really tough to play with hartlepool, it took me a day to even complete 1 month of the game because i had to make everything perfect. but its great game.

ye, those kidna clubs are fun. IF you're lucky with the club you dotn even have to cheat with the cash. Thats what playing with Cisco is like. Dresden i think is another fun club to play with. Regional div and after that 3rd div and 2nd div.

takes me like 5 hours to get thro the summer transfer period, and like 3 to get thro the januari transfer period. Just because i look at that many players, and the fact i got 27 leagues open hah. :)

I love Doudin for lower league clubs :D. Also the Puri brothers from levedia, cheap and good oh and sburlea if you're lucky hes like a potential star :D

yh, i dont need money when i play with a big team because of the players already there, i might add 1 player and just go for potential youngsters.

hell i spend more in 1 season at a championship team than what i spend with man united in 5 years:p
RedArmy20 : hell i spend more in 1 season at a championship team than what i spend with man united in 5 years:p

not much, i think around 1-2 million pound for winning it. all the "domestic cups" like the FA u get around that much in FM.

but u should make it into the semis or the final in the CL then u will get mooooooooney, and winning the prem league... :)

in italy you just have to survive a season, TV-money ftw :P, not to mention barcelona :|

Start of every season i got 150 milion in tv money. But then again my season tickets and ticket sale were extremly low :S. Where i'd get like 50-80 mil in season tickets and like 100 mil in ticket sale i get 30 - 40 in ticket sale and 20-30 in season tickets so im asuming its a bug that was in 8.0.0 :p

But i remember getting 70 mil each season with juve for tv money in 2007 donno if its still that much tho
are u talking pound or...because 150 million pounds is very very much
Deleted's avatar Deleted
nah euros, but still.... thats little over 100 mil pounds, and thats just at the start.

I'd end up with a turn over of 400-500 mil each season :) Profit of a 100 mil.

Thats without winning the CL, reaching quarter/semi-finals was the average.

Biggest profit was 140 mil with CL win :)
