(It’s like some kind of sickness/AA meeting this)!!
I, like many of you, am so ready for this new Footy Manager to come out & spend many hours sat on my laptop in the same room as the Mrs to keep her sweet, but I don't even know shes there!!! As I become so immersed in my journey and also the journey of the 16-year old Nigerian I have plucked from Copenhagen for 100k!
The Mrs will want to talk about savings or the ‘the bodyguard’ and all I care about is my Nigerian prodigy’ stats for dribbling increase from 13 up to 14!!!
Anyway, I was wondering what the main things are you look for when starting a new game and selecting a new club?
Do you always go for the team you support regardless?
Transfer budget? Wage budget?
League they are in? For example, 1 stand out team so good chance will win league!
Or do you like to start at bottom of the pyramid and earn your stripes? As that is a great feeling when you start in league 2 and higher placed teams come in for you, and although not a major jump sometimes just from having a bottom 6 club to a top 6 club is great!
I often like to go with a Championship club and pick out a few good season long loans from Premier League clubs. This can make a big difference especially if you can get a 20 goals striker at Champ level.
I like a decent transfer budget so have room for manoeuvre if can't get the dead wood out!
But this year I have to start with my beloved Arsenal! As I have spent 5-10 years shouting at my TV about what needs to be done with that team from transfers to on the pitch, so now I am going to prove I can be better than Wenger's 1st decade!!
Good to know your thoughts on the upcoming release and what you guys will be doing regarding the club you are going to begin your journey with.
