    at last someone that comes close to my taste. Tho i still havent found any of the supposed to be "fm maniacs" in here that also like having career-like games. You know, when you just dont start a new game every time it gets boring, but u stay for a while with your current team (or till the season ends) b4 u finaly leave for another team, preferably an ex-good historic team, or a small team with enough potential to allow you win someting with some luck in a few seasons.

    my longest games have always been with my beloved manchester united because they are the club i have supported since i was very young. But i'll often set challenges for myself by selling star players for cheap etc. and trying to get back to the top. i also find it fun to take control of a struggling team in the middle of the 2010 after qutting United.

    I have only had one save and I have played it much. I started with Rosenborg sometime in December and I'm still playing on the same save (now in 2012). I played 10 mins with Bayern München, but it got boring already then, so I went back to my old game. It's so much more fun to play with my local team that I have followed since I were a little kid.

    im guessing. Its all about fun. I cant have phun with fav teams because they are good teams, so i havent started a game with em since CM4 (that means no play with CM00/04 and FM05) Im not trying to sound like tha dude that does the rite thing and the rest that play with big clubs sak or anything. I just cant have fun with good clubs.

    Hi Rony. :ewan: Long time no see. I'll have a look at Assyriska when I'm done with my Torquay game, though I'll be playing that for a while yet. They had better suck though or there'll be trouble. Oh by the way, how did you enjoy Istanbul? :p ;)

    What was funny is I started with Bayern and was happy to finally have my favorite player Michael Ballack on my team for the first time..... and then Chelsea offered 50 Million Euros for him in my first week on the job and I accepted.

    I like to have career games :( I just like to take control of a mid table/relegation battle team and make them a title challenger, and then move on.

    I do like the odd 20 years at 1 team game though (H) Dont have time for it on Fm though, did it on 03/04 though

    My computer isn't really able to do 'career' games because if I run more then 2 leagues from 2 diffrent nation it runs slow etc. and if I'd ever move in a game to another club it will always be in another nation since I don't want to play against my own made star team...

    Alright so I want to be an Italian or Spanish club in the lowest league(Serie C or Spanish Third Division) but the club must have some potential to promote.

    What team should I be?

    Extremadura in Segunda B4, or Ancona in Serie C2/B. Extremadura have a better team, I think, but they do have B teams to conquer.

    A bit off topic, but I don't think that that KKK link belongs on here pal. I realise by the 'puke face' symbol that it is not a view that you subscribe to, but having it there still provides the f*ckers with free advertising. Statistically speaking if 1000 people click on the link a certain portion will read some of their hateful sh*te and a portion of those will buy into it. Just my opinion like.

    I swear fellas, I have the attention span of a 4 year old; i just quit my Lyon game after 2 seasons (2 D1 Titles, 2 miserable failures in Europe). But NOW I have a fantastic and exciting challenge, CSKA Moscow!!! The Red Army will conquer Europe by 2008!!

    Im extremely bored with every game I start with FM at the moment. In the past 3 days Ive started games with PSV, Vitesse, RKC, Sparta Prague, Rosenborg, Nantes, Rennes and Sevilla. I quit all mostly after 10 minutes :(

    I do want to play Fm, but I cant really play a long term game now, because Im getting more RAM in a week (then Im starting a big career game with more leagues than I can playnow)

    Im really enjoing my Motherwell game :) I came 3rd behind....guess who? Celtic then Rangers in my first season but i was happy as i qualified for Uefa Cup action. Im doing ok, into the group phase after beating Tampere Utd in Quals and Servette FC in the 1st Round. Although i face a tough task in the group stage against Parma, Werder Bremen, and two other tough side who i cant remember atm.. :fool:
    Although im really eyeing off trying Avellino in Italy. C1 Division, 36000 stadium and a cool team logo of a Wolf (they must be Roman).
