bit lost with fm13... not sure who to amanger or a challenge, struggling for motivation tried the pentagon but im hopeless with tactics and players buying etc.
mmmm perhaps.. wouldn't mind doing a Europe country like um Austria or something
I was like this a few years ago, i just did something totally random and added 8 countries from across the world that i'd never considered and started unemployed with professional background.

I ended up managing in Uruguay, Peru and then Australia :) found it interesting to see how difficult leagues run and their rules and it brought the enjoyment back for me....might not be for every body but i loved it!

Also when i'm struggling for motivation, i just have a bit of fun, load up the editor and give a Championship side or a lower Prem side a few hundred million and up their rep, and just see what i can do....its not as easy as you think to buy the right players at the right time and get them playing together!
that could be fun ay with pro or legend rep and just go from there...
Its made a lot easier now by the fact u can add and remove leagues as u go along, so u can go to one country for a season or 2 and then leave and remove that country and add another....i always made a point that i'd never sign a new contract, i'd only stay for 1, 2 or 3 seasons and then move on :) made it more interesting....and of course u find some gems that you might not discover anywhere else! (especially if ur like me and dont look on forums for great players)
That's actually a really good idea, might give that first one a go!
Yeah mate do it :) its a good adventure to take!

maybe write a story about it but try not to get too hooked on one club or their players because you won't leave, its just about the results and building your CV :D
hmm but what do load up t start with..
I just selected a few random south american counties (not brazil or argentina), a couple of European ones that i'd never go to otherwise and then Australia and an Asian one!

Just go to nations u no nothing about at all and see how it goes, and try and stick at it :)
true was thinking south Africa, Malaysia, Austria, USA and Peru haha
Why not try lower league football, as you are Leeds United supporter why not try a local Yorkshire club in lower leagues ie FC Halifax, Bradford Park Avenue, Guiseley or Harrogate Town in Blue Square Bet North Division (level 6). Or maybe download level 9 lower leagues database for editor database and choose someone like Farsley, Ossett Town, Garforth Town, Wakefield, Ossett Albion or Harrogate Railway Athletic in Northern Premier League First Division North (level 8). And try take them up the league pyramid, maybe even take them all the way up to the premier league?.
pefer a local team from Australia like the mighty Ipswich knights
