Career San Martín de San Juan - My Philosophy


Recommended Posts



This is my first career on FMM21, which means 30 seasons in one of the new countries. The Country I chose was Argentina, chosen by my Fiancee due to the sad news about Maradona.I started the career unemployed to make it more realistic & as an unknown coach with a bronze badge. The club that chose me was San Martín.I want to manage San Martin to the top of Argentinian football. 



When I first arrived at the club, they had average 1st team facilities & basic youth facilities. The stadium has a respectable size of 19000 with an average capacity of 8000 supporters. Through constantly asking the board(and maybe a glitch), we now have the best 1st team & youth facilities.



I currently delegate the training regime to my Assistant Manager German Rivarola. The staff levels now are world class due to the facilities and consist of mostly Gold Badged Staff members. The finances have not always kept green & the club have been bailed out around 3x now but this season has seen us progress stably.



Since starting FMM21, there have been many transfers in order to try and satisfy different tactics( Tiki Taka Template etc) but have failed.This said, only a few transfers were made this year with players I thought could improve the squad using the below template:

  • GK=Handling
  • DR/L=Stamina
  • DC=Tackling
  • DMC=Tackling
  • MC=Movement
  • AMR/L=Shooting
  • FC=Movement



Probably my most testing part of this save with San Martin. I have tried a few different tactics including the Tiki Taka Templated tactic, but with no success. My attacking Tiki Taka Tactic from last year finally brought success.



After many challenging seasons with San Martin, Finally in 2029, We finally won the Argentinian 2nd Division. This season saw us having one of the best defensive & attacking teams in the league. Previous seasons have been very up & down due to trying to find my style on this game with the board sticking with me through protests and uproar.




Please see below the DO's and DON'Ts for success on FMM21.

Quick update on this save with San Martín FC. It turns out that 5 years after gaining promotion to the Argentinian Premier Division, We have won the league 🥳🥳🥳. In a crazy season, San Martín came away with an unbelievable 5x trophies!   🏆🏆🏆🏆🏆.

*** It was achieved by looking at the attributes as a whole instead of individually, aiming for a squad devoid of bad attributes( Red) and aiming for as many blue's and greens as possible. In researching the success I achieved previously, I worked out that the squad have the below average attributes per players:

  • 0- Bad(Red)Attributes
  • 5- Average(Orange) attributes
  • 7-8- Good(blue) attributes
  • 3-4- Outstanding(Green) attributes

This is obviously not universal but a framework to help guide key decisions such as buying and selling players.

I focused this year on 1stly,  aiming to buy players with NO bad attributes and sell players at the club with bad attributes. I also aimed to buy players as much as possible with 7+ Good/Outstanding attributes.

The team was not invincible or anything like that, but much improved and ended the season with a whopping 5x trophies which is very impressive.


This is turning into a really exciting save for me and really enjoying managing San Martín. I find the competitions come thick & fast so you need to have a robust squad to manage them. 

Hopefully this year marks the start of San Martín dominating South American Football!

In the beginning of 2020 i used your philosophy and tactic with Everton. It fit perfectly and I had great success with it. Now with the 2021 version of the game I'm going to try the same in the German league. You're awesome dude

Final update - My career at San Martìn FC

Today, I have retired from my 30 year career with Argentinian side San Martìn which has been my 1st on Football Manager Mobile 2021. The career has been a challenging one with quite a few ups and downs.As you can see below, We spent our first 9x season's in the Argentinian Second Division and a further 5x seasons working hard to establish ourselves as the best club in the country. By the end of my career, we still had some issue's with consistency although had amassed a lot of cups! This being said, I would deem my time at San Martìn as SUCCESSFULL!


Personal Stats

As you can see below, My career with San Martìn took me one week & 2 days to complete! This is a long time of playing Football Manager with one club! 😄 This said, I have loved every second of it and have learnt & grown a lot.

The club has won over 45 competition's across the 30 years. This includes 10 League titles and 39 Cup wins, with 11x Copa Libertadores. The club has been very successful during my reign as manager.

I was even offered the chance to manage the England National Team, which I accepted. During my 4 year spell as their manager, I did manage to qualify for all major tournaments BUT slipped up at them, eventually getting me the sack from my post.

Finally, the game stated that I had an "Sola was the greatest manager the game has ever seen" . I managed 1530 matches across the 30 years, winning 909 of them(59.41%). My reputation on the game was "World Class" due to this and throughout my career, I was "revered" by my squad. I won 16x Copa Sudamerica Best Manager!


Club Stats

San Martìn has grown a lot in the 30 years I have managed them. When I came to the club, they had a stadium which only held just under 19,000 stadium but has now got a capacity of 105,000!!!. In addition to this, the youth & 1st team facilities were average when I first arrived but are now State of the Art! This shows how successful the club has been over my reign.

please see additional statistics below:



In Conclusion, My 1st full career on Football manager Mobile 2021 has turned out to be Inconsistent, Competitive but Successful! I always like my 1st save on the new game to be with one of the new countries. The quality in Argentina is strong and the usual suspects of River Plate, Boca etc are always making it difficult for you. I also found the leagues to be much more challenging than the cup's which I had a very good win rate in!

I have really enjoyed this save with San Martìn and would recommend the Argentinian leagues to anyone.
