Hello everyone,

I need help choosing two clubs, one being for a game I am planning to put many hours in, other one to play casually on my laptop when I have the time (at school? gnar gnar).

For my new 'main' game I am looking for a club from the blue square north/south division to build up until the premier league (had this in my mind since FM 2009/2010 I guess, but never actually did it).

Because of the fact that my knowledge of England and this league isn't that great, I was wondering if there is someone here who could help. Because I don't want it to be a random club I would really want it to be a club with some history, a large city, great potential audience, with respect, that did some great things in the past, I don't know ;p something to have a great 'starting point' to build something up, something that makes it stand out from the rest.

I was actually looking myself and found a small club with a large (??) city; Salisbury City F.C., but have no idea if this really is the most interesting choice. I don't care how small or large or bad or good it is, as long as it is in north or south

To make my post even longer: for my casual game I am looking for a spanish club I don't need much time to build up but I can just have fun with. Last year my 'casual' game was Manchester City which worked great because you could just buy a lot and quickly win it all, but after that it got boring of course.

So for my casual game a semi-top or top team from the LIGA BBVA would be great like Barcelona or Real Madrid or .. Atletico Madrid? I am really thinking about choosing Barcelona or Real Madrid, but doesn't that get way too boring when you win everything? I guess I would go with Real Madrid out of those two because they are the current club "behind barca".

To Sum up:

New main game:
Club from blue square north/south, that has some sort of 'special feature' (like large potential audience).
Or at least something that would let me have an relationship with it (like I had on FIFA 09 I think it was, were I built up Chesterfield, just because I liked the name and since then I have a special feeling whenever I see chesterfield )

New Casual game:
Club from LIGA BBVA (spain), that is semi-top (like atletico madrid??) or top (like Barcelona/Real Madrid), that is great just to have fun with but doesn't give too much work when not having a huge amount of time to play.


Sorry for the lengthy post, but I really would like your help!


Thanks!
for main game you should pick a club from some smaller countrys,serbia or crotia,playing with serbian clubs is very dificult because you have to develop demestic players and not to buy foreign.
for casual pick psg,ateltico,anji.
Try and give Crawley Town a go. They have a really good chairman who is willing to spend money.
Casual game: I did a great one with Dortmund as they have promising youth and two CBs for the next 10 years.
Thanks for the suggestions so far but the club you guys suggested aren't in the Blue Square North/South division :P Your casual game suggestions I will look into!
for the spanish club i'd go with malaga or valencia. the club from the north/south division, choose that one that in the are of the merseyside derby, southport. and outclass those two bastards! everton and liverpool xD

Why don't you download the extended Dutch data editor leagues. The you could play as your local club and work it to glory. I know for fact that there is a level 13 Italy file lying around, I'm sure you could find a league level 5 or 6 Dutch file... I mean... instead of England... it might mean more to you, instead of a random club you've never heard of.

And for Spain, I would go with Athletic or Real Sociedad, but if you're going to take Athletic, try to do it while following their transfer rules (only Basque players)
After reading this it is making me feel the same of doing this xD

True true, but the problem there is that 'my' clubs are already in the highest league (Feyenoord) and even in my city (ADO den haag). So if I would go back a step and choose a even more local club I don't think (because of the rules here) it would be possible to promote because I think they only play for the 'title' (without promotion), so I would prefer to build a club in a way that would be realistic in real life, thanks for the suggestion though.

Your spanish club I will look into!

Haha thanks! I would definitely recommend it, because I think Football Manager is at it's best when you "build". I also heared from a lot of people that this 'challenge' is a lot of fun, so let me know which team you chose!
#45481 WhyAlwaysMeUtd : Workington reds blue square north

Thanks, will look into this!
For casual: Valencia, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla or Villareal would be great choices. Bilbao would've been in the list had they not possess a 'Basque-signings only contract'.
have started a bilbao save today and i'm really excited about it. i know that the rule they have about transfers is weird, but it is a way they have to maintain the club authentic. here in portugal, people complain that there are too many foreigners and we do not play with our own players. that rule is a way to make their own players grow and the spanish football better.
millwall is a bit of a challenge for the first few seasons
