What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?

I will definitely be City, Wednesday, and Lisbon at some point.

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?

Yes

Are you a fan of lower league management?

Yes, although it can be a challenge.

What factors affect your team choice?

Players, finances, and quality.
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?

I have never started with the team I support (Man United, but this year I think I will. Simple reason is that I will learn all the players in the Premier League. As I live in South Africa the only game I saw live was in 1999 (Man United against Arsenal. I will never forget. FA Cup semi Final.
I try to watch every game on DSTV in SA as we are lucky enough to have all the English Premier league games as well as leagues from other Countries.
So it will be Man Utd this year.

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?

No

Are you a fan of lower league management?

Yes, I like to start with a team with low or no budget. Am currently playing with Thurrock (Blue Square Bet South) and took them all the way to League 1. Mid season and I am 16th after 21 games. I like the challenge of finding good players for next to nothing and at the moment it is very difficult as my Club is not attractive enough. I can still only afford free transfers. (-:

What factors affect your team choice?

A challenge. A team that is doomed for relegation. I also like a team with nice colors and badge. Location is not important.
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?
Most Likley, Pool, Southampton or Inter.

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?
Nope.

Are you a fan of lower league management?
Not really.

What factors affect your team choice?
How much I like the team, what kind of players they have, and I often want challenges.
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?

I have a few in mind - teams I support, Manchester United and Newcastle, one or two with money like Malaga or QPR, or some teams in transition, such as Tottenham or either Milan club. Juventus also interest me, as I love Kwadwo Asamoah.

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?

Yeah, United and the toon

Are you a fan of lower league management?

Not really, tried a save with Hartlepool, but it didn't go anywhere

What factors affect your team choice?

Tons, the registration rules mainly. The spanish 4 non-EU players really pisses me off, I like the prem for its leniency. Also a good team with youth prospects or a bright future interests me.
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?
River Plate,Villareal,FTC,Hoffenheim

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?
Yes. I'm love with Ferencváros

Are you a fan of lower league management?
Yes,i'm love started lower league team,and win the champions,champions league


What factors affect your team choice?
Fan base,youth talented,challenges
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?

Of course I will be Ipswich to begin with and continue with that game for at least a few seasons so long as it is going well. I will probably be another English team at some point too most like QPR or Man City just for the money. I will also be having my first stab at international management with Belgium to try and win the world cup.

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?
Definately. Where better to start?

Are you a fan of lower league management?
Not particularly, tried it with Oldham once, I just get fed up of having no money or wages to spend. Gave up after about half a season

What factors affect your team choice?
I like a bit of money to spend and I like a bit of a challenge too. I would like the game to come with scenarios done officially by SI, every year I hold my breathe that they will but they never do!
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?

I'll definitely start with Arsenal as always. Then I'll have a dig around but I'll probably try somewhere like Barnet.

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?

Yep. Arsenal are my team.

Are you a fan of lower league management?

Yeah, I reckon it's good fun and a good challenge. Had some good saves with Barnet, Maccles, Crewe and Oxford in the past.

What factors affect your team choice?

Mainly I look at media prediction. If I'm not managing Arsenal, I won't normally go for a team predicted to finish near the top. I also have a quick look at finances and the team info like average age and stuff but that is of less significance.
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?

I am going to manage Dorchester Town from the Blue Square South.

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?

No. I find it too easy to manage Manchester United and since I have played Football Manager from the earliest game when it was called Championship Manager 3 I have managed them enough already.

Are you a fan of lower league management?

I find they are more rewarding. I am looking forward to taking Dorchester Town to the Premiership like I did on Football Manager 2012.

What factors affect your team choice?

I generally make sure that the club own their stadium. It helps massively in the long run as paying out rent cripples clubs in the lower leagues. I sometimes look at what parent clubs they have also.
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?

Unsure. Eyeing Napoli as I always do. They were my first save ever in an FM game and I have grown partial to playing them often every season.

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?

Nah. Real Madrid supporter, but it's just not fun managing the big sides for me.

Are you a fan of lower league management?

Absolutely, however I still struggle with going too low. I like League 1 and 2 in England and top tiers of mid size countries such as Croatia, Slovakia, Denmark, etc.

What factors affect your team choice?

Not too many. I like to find a team that isn't absolute rubbish and can be worked with. I look for secure to rich finances and a transfer budget I can do something with at whatever level I am at.
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?

Well i might go for Blackpool or i might go for Lyon.

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?

Nah Tottenham all the way in real life lol.

Are you a fan of lower league management?

Well i like seeing posts but when it comes to the game i am a fan of the top divions.

What factors affect your team choice?

Well i like a chalenge but i also like a team with 1 or 2 wonderkids all ready in, but without all ready big and famous Stars all ready in.
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?
Leeds United for now.

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?
In FM13 I'm making an exception, I was used to start with Newcastle United.

Are you a fan of lower league management?
Yes, this is a big challenge.

What factors affect your team choice?
History, kit colors, nation.
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013
- Undecided , but I'm thinking about some mid-table,relegation zoned teams in English Premier League to see my way throu the game. Like Wigan is usually the choice.

Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?
Not really, but I do it when I have the feel for the game, I support Fiorentina and Liverpool

Are you a fan of lower league management?
oh yes big fan, I like to try to make from a small local team a big team, which takes years or even decades, this game has really helped me to understand about the lower leagues and fun to find some players that are willing to play for such team despite if they have much better standards and quality, I'm fan of the lower leagues in Italy and England.

What factors affect your team choice?
well I really like to concentrate on young players, and try to build up strong youth Academy to develop my own players, and usually I buy young players to build up my squad, but try to strength the squad as soon as possible, like usually the average of my teams are about 22 years or less.
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?
I started with Újpest FC(Hungary)
Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?
Absolutely :)
Are you a fan of lower league management?
I like this, because the team can improve, maybe build a new stadium with my name, but no too lower league..
What factors affect your team choice?
Including, what is the financial status of this club, how many supporters have and important that i can improving this club.
What team are you going to be on Football Manager 2013?

I’ll start unemployed (and unemployable), albeit with potentially a former international experience in the first instance and end up as a Sunday Leaguer.


Do you usually start with the team you support in real life?

Not really, as I support odd teams. I’ve follow Wycombe on and off since they beat Chelsea (back when they were they team to beat). But I believe they are not low enough in the pyramid to make that worthwhile. Other than that, I support the Phoenix in the A-League and that holds little attraction as there is no where to go in terms of promotion, and attracting talent is extremely difficult.


Are you a fan of lower league management?

Hell yes. I am also a believer in playing in what may be called the “unfashionable” leagues. I can talk the hind legs off a donkey, and I can spin a decent yarn, so I don’t have an issue with making the odd little observations or tackling a league which other members of the FM Scout community may not have been previously familiar. I seek to entertain, inform and inspire others, while also having a great deal of fun myself.

The only aspect which makes me wary of LLM (in England at least) is an expense called “non football costs”. Having taken Maidenhead from BSS to EPL in FM’11, I was then promptly buried under the sheer weight of these costs, no matter how hard I tried to keep a lid on it, and it did kill the enjoyment factor for me, as I have always prided myself on applying a financial prudent approach, and “If in doubt, pull out” approach to contract negotiations.

LLM does teach you, or at least should teach you, to be prudent with your cash and look for value in your players. While I do get emotionally attached to the team, LLM has taught me to be cutthroat with my squad and either sell the deadwood at fire sale prices, be flexible enough not to turn down fair offers on players and not to be afraid to transfer list a player if their wage demands spiral out of control. There is invariably a solution to your “problem” position(s) which does not include dipping into the loan market; you just need to be bold enough to implement it.

LLM is another great reminder that your squad doesn’t need to contain any “star” players, but to place value on team work, determination and work-rate so that they may gel cohesively as a unit and depending where you are playing, the likelihood of attracting any foreign players is slim to none, and then the chance of a successful WP application (if necessary) is the proverbial five eighths of not a hell of a lot.


What factors affect your team choice?

I like teams where I can immediately make changes which yield results, whether that is a change in tactics, captain, or recruiting better staff or players. Where you have a strong backroom and team, it is a lot more difficult to make changes which immediately benefit the team. My methodology rightly or wrongly is to attempt a total revamp of the squad within two/three years, replace anyone over the age of 30 with younger, cheaper players and making a call on whether to retain the top five wage earners.

My other key considerations:

1) Beg, borrow or steal the best scouts you can possibly get, but don’t go bonkers paying comp.

2) A decent physio is worth his/her weight in gold

3) Trade your Granny and/or your first born for a decent keeper. Keepers are strangely cheaper than a goal scoring striker, and if you can keep the opposition from your net, it builds pressure, and you are more likely to nick one through. Draws won’t necessarily win titles, but strong showings build reputations and the ability to sign better players.

Rumours have it that building a strong defensive line may be the most difficult aspect of LLM in FM13, with defenders and goalies being of such quality that I may be better served putting my Granny and my first born in the team.
