    Hi guys,
    I've got some time on my hands and I feel like starting a nice new game with FM. Anyone got any suggestions on what team I should choose? :)

    usually i go for an at least above average 2nd division team.. Kinda gives me time to build a new young team, as usual :p

    Well it can be anything really. Maybe not the absolute top cause I've experienced that's a little too easy.

    If you want an absolute challenge with zilch knowledge of players, try the S.League. Otherwise, I'd recommend Bordeaux, Wigan, Real Betis or Catania.

    meh, i want to start another one too...

    in my game i started with Middlesbrough(well, Everton, but got fired pretty quickly :p)...took them to 3rd place in the EPL, then to Milan, won all i could, then to Chelsea, won all i could..then to Sevilla, brought them from bankruptcy to the champions league, and then to Inter, that's when i started not caring for the save game much...

    then i started a new save game, this time with the 8.0.2, with Bayern...but that didn't do it...maybe i need that challenge that is starting from the bottom and have success...

    I never had a nomadic career as yours. I feel the itch to start a new game but I'm waiting for the SG United patch. Right now, I'm reliving Power Rangers In Space :$

    Rennes (a good core there with Briand, Mensah & Didot but little money to spend)
    QPR (have a crap team but bundles of money in the 8.0.2 patch)
    Shaktar (again a lot of money but the team is pretty average and you'll struggle in Europe)
    Torino (like Rennes have a good core and a star man in Rosina but little money to strengthen)
    Getafe (you won't break into the CL places for a couple of seasons but they have Ustari who is god-like and the rest of the squad is pretty decent too)

    Will have a think later for a few more suggestions.

    I had a good game going with Man City.

    other teams you could choose -
    England - Man City, Southampton
    Italy - Lazio, Atalanta
    Spain - Valencia, Deportivo
    France - Toulouse

    They are teams i have had a good game with and quite challanging.

    I'm sorry but how is Man City a challenge? You start off with the likes of Richards, Johnson, Elano & Corluka, plus have Thaksin's millions...a title challenge is realistic in the first season!

    Out of them 4 players only 2 that were playing to a good standard and that was Corluka and Johnson. So i decided to cash in on the others.
