  1. Hi everyone After seeing a flurry of excellent articles discussing potential club choices for various leagues such as England (by @Jsavfc), Scotland (by @ScottishFMM) and other European leagues (by @Rhewi) I decided to contribute to the growing number of league previews and offer some interesting choices for potential saves In Australia. Quick Overview The Australian A-League has grown once again to 12 teams, with this being the most teams to compete in one season of the A-League ever. Additionally, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the A-League’s start date has been pushed back from October to the 27th of December, although whether this will be reflected in FMM 21 is unknown. Interesting clubs to manage I have decided to include 3 teams as in a 12 team league this equates to a quarter of available teams. Macarthur FC The A-League’s new boys, based in South-West Sydney, Macarthur FC have already made a splash in the transfer market, adding Australian internationals Adam Federici and Mark Milligan to their squad along with former Spanish international Benat, formerly of Athletic Club Bilbao. Macarthur are a new team ready to inscribe your name into the history books. Will you bring glory to this new team and follow in the footsteps of previous new teams like Western United or the Western Sydney Wanderers? Or will they go the same way as the Central Coast Mariners and become the perennial whipping boys of the A-League. Melbourne City FC The cashed-up little brother of Manchester City. Despite heavy investment in the squad, including the acquisition of Jamie Maclaren, who scored 23 league goals last season, Melbourne City FC have still failed to win the A-League. With the A-League’s golden boot winner in tow and the backing of the City Football Group, can you improve on the solitary FFA Cup won by the club. Brisbane Roar Despite having the longest unbeaten record in the A-League, Brisbane Roar have suffered over the past 2 years, finishing 9th for the last 2 seasons. Brisbane’s top goal scorers, Scott McDonald and Roy O’Donovan, scored only 12 league goals between them, although O’Donovan left the club halfway through last season. For a city the size of Brisbane and a club with such a proud history, will you be able to restore the Roar’s glory days? Thanks for reading, I hope this article will help encourage some more saves in the A-League.
  2. This is an incredible idea, I’ll take you on at Wellington Phoenix
  3. Nice start mate, Arzani looks to be a great prospect for the Socceroos, although FMM seems to rate Jacob Italiano more than Arzani from what I’ve seen in some of my saves. Hopefully Timmy appears soon, although I find that when world class players from smaller nations retire, they always seem to be the first to get a PA swap. KIU
  4. Fantastic article, Stadia really is shaking up the gaming industry, although I don't know how mainstream stadia will become. Hopefully SI realise that they make more money from selling the game themselves than whatever dividend they receive from Google and that keeps FMM coming
  5. Nice job mate, interesting challenge and it looks great to follow. KIU
  6. Great job, it was a formidable task but fantastic to follow. KIU
  7. Great job, can't wait to see who your final players are
  8. In fairness Torres was never going to be available as he is in Japan iirc and Japan is not supported in FMM. Great job though and hopefully you find someone you connect with
  9. I've always enjoyed using Volland, great job, the finish line is so close now. KIU
  10. Just caught up and wow what a career! So much drama and excitement. Hopefully there are no more 8 game goal droughts. Great work and KIU
  11. I've found that being the manager who loans in the player works as well. So if you win an award with a loaned player playing at your club you get the achievement
  12. Unlucky with Maclaren, hopefully Wright can reach the 200. KIU
  13. With FMM 19 on its way, discussion has turned to what leagues should be added to the next iteration of FMM, I thought instead of discuss a potential new league, why not show off the best parts of what is considered an under valued league. I am of course referring to Australia's Hyundai A-League. History The Hyundai A-League was founded in 2004, with its first season in 2005, to replace the National Soccer League and has gone from strength to strength. The first champions were Sydney FC, who pulled off the first major coup by signing Dwight Yorke for a season. Sydney FC then managed to better this by signing Italian World Cup winner Alessandro Del Piero in 2013. With these household names and 10 fairly balanced clubs, the league can feel somewhat competitive at the start of any save. 13 clubs have graced the A-League, with Gold Coast United, North Queensland Fury and New Zealand Knights failing to last. In 2017, the FFA announced two new clubs will be joining for the 2019-20 season, so this will most likely be the last FMM with a 10 team A-League. Players to Watch Siem De Jong (on loan from Ajax) Dutch international De Jong brings the star quality that was lost by Sydney since last season. With a goal and assist in his first game, he will be hoping to replace the Polish international Adrian Mierzejewski. Keisuke Honda One of the biggest names to hit Australia in recent years, Honda will hope to bring the class that got him signed to AC Milan. Honda is undoubtedly poised to be one of the better rated players in the league. Ross McCormack After being frozen out by Steve Bruce at Aston Villa, McCormack was allowed to join Melbourne City on a 6 month loan and scored an incredible 13 goals in his short time in Australia. Buoyed by this, McCormack has joined the Central Coast Mariners on loan for the season. Adam Le Fondre Not many strikers can claim to have scored 12 premier league goals in a season but Le Fondre can. The former Reading striker joins Sydney TC FC to replace Golden boot winner Bobo and a goal a debut should help allay fears. Usain Bolt (maybe, only in February update) The biggest name to ever come down under, Usain Bolt came on trial to the Central Coast Mariners and shocked observers when he scored a brace on his first start for the club. Interesting clubs to manage The clubs in the A-League are all fairly balanced thanks to the salary cap in place, although Sydney FC and Melbourne Victory, with their incredible recruitment and the minor and major premierships they won last year are great options for dominating the league with. The Central Coast Mariners, as the lowest spending club in the league, naturally struggle but with signings like Tommy Oar and Ross McCormack, the offer an interesting option. Thanks for reading and comments are appreciated.
