Re: *Official Football Manager Discussion Thread*
Went with Velez Sarsfield in Argentina. They were my feeder club with Paris St-Germain, so had a little bit more of a connection with them than the rest. They eventually had a Sugar Daddy, came the 3rd biggest team in the world and had Lionel Messi as a manager for a few months on that file. All that happened around 2027, mind.
First season, consistent, but not an excellent season. Double 4th finish in the two league standings, 3rd overall, loss in the finals of the Sudamericana to Flamengo of Brazil and a Last 16 knockout by Chivas of Mexico (Erick Torres/Carlos Fierro).
Second season about to start, got in some excellent newgens. 4 players of 4 & 1/2 star quality or above. One is dubbed the next 'Esteban Cambiasso', another 'Martin Demichellis'. Got 5 on 4 star quality. So, future is already set nicely. Need to break even on debts, and improve the youth facilities since they degraded slightly. On course for a fun file. Hopefully will get the Argentina job sooner than later.
