Many people will have a club they always do there first save with whether it is the club they support or another team that has become there traditional first save club, I like to start with my own club Oxford Utd and on FMM19 it will be no different. This is so I can check out there squad whilst I get to grips with the new game and test out tactics before I embark on my first “proper” save. I have compiled a list of 5 options that I think would make for a good save in this years game but it should be noted that this was written before having any information as to whether any new leagues have been added to the game this year. Team: 1860 Munich Nickname: The Lions Division: German 3rd Division Stadium: Stadion an der Grünwalder Straße Capacity: 15,000 1860 Munich were one of the founding members of the Bundesliga in 1963 and three years later they won there one and only title but in recent years they have been in decline so your job is to see if you can get them back to there mid 60’s peak. They haven’t played in the top flight since the 2003/04 season and having spent 13 years in the 2.Bundesliga they suffered relegation to what should have been the 3rd division but worse was to come when investor Hassan Ismaik decided he wouldn’t pay the fees that would allow the club the necessary license to play in the 3rd division for the 2017/18 season. This resulted in them actually being relegated 2 levels instead of 1 to the 4th tier Regionaliga Bayern division. Last season they won promotion back to the 3rd tier and you now have the chance to manage them again and take them back up the divisions and in time see if you can surpass there noisy city neighbours. Star Player: Tough tackling midfielder Quirin Moll will be a key man as you attempt to win promotion at the first attempt. Team: Sunderland Nickname: The Black Cats Division: English League 1 Stadium: The Stadium of Light Capacity: 48.707 Last season after years of mismanagement off the pitch and fair bit on it as well Sunderland dropped into the 3rd tier for the first time since the 1987/88 season. Sunderland are one of England’s traditional big clubs having spent the majority of their existence in the top flight including 6 league titles and although the last came in 1935/36 season only 5 clubs have won more. Their last trophy came in 1973 when legendary manager Bob Stokoe lead the then 2nd division club to FA Cup glory by beating Leeds Utd in the final 1-0. There last final came in 2014 when they lost 3-1 to Manchester City in the League Cup Final at Wembley. Now under new ownership a more positive atmosphere now surrounds the club so can you take them back to glory? Expectations will be high but everything is in place at the club to be successful straight away as you are by far the biggest club in the division, with a huge stadium, good training facilities and the financial clout to get promoted straight away and then build towards getting back in the Premier League. Star Man: Not that I am biased at all by picking an Oxford cult hero but versatile and combative attacking midfielder Chris Maguire will be a key player for you as you look to meet expectations and win the division in season 1. Team: Hereford Nickname: The Bulls Division: National League North Stadium: Edgar Street Capacity: 4,913 Hereford FC were formed in 2014 after the original Hereford Utd went out of business and as a new club they had to start in the 9th tier of English football in the Midland League Premier Division competing against clubs such as Leamington Hibernian and Alvis Sporting Club who they beat to the title at there first attempt. This earned them promotion to the Southern League South and West which they won and then last season they won the Southern League Premier Division meaning they will compete in the National League North this year and more importantly be available to manage in FMM19. Although they are new at this level Hereford are a club with ambitions and with average gates of 2.600 they can claim they should be playing at least a league higher if not even playing in League 2 so it is your job to make those dreams come true but with former league clubs like Stockport, York and Chester in their division competition for promotion will be fierce. Star Man: Former Bristol Rovers midfielder Eliot Richards was an important player for Hereford last season and despite the step up in leagues I’m sure the playmaker will be just as important this season. Team: LA Galaxy Nickname: Galaxy Division: MLS Stadium: StubHub Center Capacity: 27,000 With MLS being a new league in FMM last year managing a club there this year might not be your first choice but then you would be forgetting one thing, Zlatan plays there! LA Galaxy were formed in 1994 meaning they have played in every MLS season and they are one of the league’s most successful clubs with 5 MLS Cups, 4 Supporters Shields and 2 US FA Cups but they haven’t won the MLS Cup since 2014 and in the 2017 season they “won” the dubious honour of the MLS wooden spoon for being the leagues worst team. This gives you plenty to build on and with Zlatan upfront and few other famous faces as well with Ashley Cole, and the Dos Santos brothers on the books as well there is the basis of a team to build on. The MLS isn’t a league with a huge amount of depth as it lacks relegation and the North American Champions League isn’t a great competition either but it’s certainly fun for a few seasons and giving Zlatan one last hurrah has to be an attraction to. Star Man: No contest here as it has to be the talismanic Swede, Zlatan all day long. Team: Random button What a cop out I hear you cry! Well bear with me and I will explain. FMM is full of loads of great clubs that would make a really satisfying save so why not let the game pick a club for you. I often see on here or other social media people asking what club they should manage and I think the game is more then willing to choose a club for you and you might just find a team that you know very little about but they become a firm favourite for you. I think the best way to do this is too pick 4 nations (assuming that is still the max in FMM19) and the divisions you want to go down to or that your device can handle and then just hit that random button on the club selection screen and away you go. To make it more of a random choice why not select nations that you have never managed in before or you have very little knowledge about and you could really get a new experience from the game. This will also lead you to look for different players to sign as the usual guys you go for may not be in the DB or you simply can’t sign for the club you are managing. A similar option to this is to simply not choose a club and start unemployed then apply for the available jobs at the start or wait for clubs to start sacking managers and see who offers you the job. This has the added element of difficulty as if a manager has left a club it is usually because they aren’t performing and it will be your job to come in a try and turn the form around and often after the transfer window has closed so you will have a period of time that you will not be able to bring in the players that you feel could help the squad straight away.

I hope I have given you a few ideas of clubs that you could manage this year but what I would really like to hear from you all is who you plan to start a save with on the 2nd Nov when you have downloaded the game.
