We all have obscure teams that we have great admiration for purely because of cm/fm. Teams that you always check up on during every save or in real life. Maybe because of a good save you had managing them, an awesome name, because they had one player you loved or even because they had a cool colour scheme.
San Marino have always been close to my heart. Haven't managed them on cm but religiously play as them on the fm series trying to get good San marinese regens.
Another team is Stenhousemuir in Scotland, I am managing them in my current save. Just love the name to be honest, their club nickname is "the warriors" too which I found pretty awesome.
Malmo, varzim, Monterrey, velez, st Pauli to name a few others
What teams do you guys associate with? Do you have any habits concerning the teams as well such as loaning out players to them as an example.
Barnet for me. They had an awesome team on the ODB with Wayne Purser, Mark Gower, Greg Heald, Lee Harrison, Mark Arber, Ben Strevens all standing out. But no matter how many times I managed them, I was always beaten to the title by flipping Doncaster (or whoever Justin Jackson played for).

Apoel Nicosia but more because of Sensible soccer, I do keep an eye out for them on everything though.
On champ? It's Newport because of Andrew Mainwaring, and actually player I found who turned out ace, I think that was CM3. He is easily up there with Etherington (well about 4 of the Peterborough players), Moukoko, Nkubi etc as top top player.
Monterrey for me because they were the first team I saw in Mexico so I've followed them ever since
Peterhead and Bilbao for ancestral reasons
Huddersfield because of CM
Ipswich because of the original CF
For CM reasons... Dijon, Woking, Gernika, Dynamo Dresden. Just for the name? Maidenhead, because gutter mind.
I favour being a manager in England and Italy and prefer the latter because of the transfer window, the lack of restriction on foreign players and the "funky" tactics applied by Italian managers...
Back in the days my absolute favorite was Atalanta - brilliant mix players like Doni, Bellinni, Zenoni, Pinardi, Rossini and my fave Federico Pisani who unfortunately died very young in a car crash
Recently my fave team has been Lecce because of hero Fabrizio Miccoli. Love pairing him up with other older Italian maestro's and in my most recent save game I had Miccoli lift the Chl throphy at the tender age of 40 Cheers all
Was just about to post Atalanta, what a team.
Did like joining Boca for Riquelme, not selling him and then moving club and buying him
Rushden were always good, 7m to stock up on legends that had EU status or passed the work permit regulations.
I have a spot for TNS in Wales.
And there was a side called Chimney Corner from Northern Ireland.
A more recent one is Blackbird from Finland.
Managed them passed the year 2100 a few updates back.
It's Sheffield Wednesday for me. I love the name (very Robinson Crusoe-esque) the
crest and when I started following football Chris Waddle was a legend there; I would
read about his dazzling diagonal runs from the right wing, cutting inside, a proto-Robben
as it were. What's more, SW has a real following and a mythical stadium.
God damn it I'm starting to feel an urge to start a save with them... (but I have
work to do :/ ).
Preston North End for me (Cant be arsed to explain why)
Tiny crowds, massive stadium (and therefore costs), appalling reputation, and very small wages budget.
I like a challenge lol
Cardiff and F.Andria and Brescia from CM games
Doncaster if my home team counts (and its easy to win the conference). Otherwise AFC Bournemouth, since they are the only team I've gone from bottom to top with (conference aside).
Another one for Atalanta as well, had a great save with them making them an all Italian team before moving onto England and turning Chelsea into an all English team.
Chesterfield as my home town club
often went with doncaster for long term bottom to top career games and cant remember why but always had a soft spot for cowdenbeath in scotland
Always loved to play with Leyton Orient. Brilliant name.
