Vorsprung durch Technik (A Chelsea Story)


Recommended Posts




Welcome to my FM13 career thread! I've never actually made one of these before, but this specific save sounds like it could be reasonably interesting to those interested in the Premier League (Chelsea fans in particular) so I thought I'd chart my progress and share my journey.

This career will pan out with Chelsea only, with a few specific rules that are listed below. If I complete the challenge, I may branch out to other European teams but I haven't thought that far ahead yet.

The Special One

Brief Explanation

I'm a loyal Chelsea fan, and am extremely interested in their current team and more importantly their youth team. I aim to win the domestic and European competitions with my youth products, and not make any purchases from any other teams. This may be hard and frustrating, but the feeling of achievement will be great when I finally get there. :)

My philosophy is to play fast, attractive football (cliched? yes), so I'm looking to play very fluid and have each player contribute to the play. Torres is a little disappointed in terms of attributes, so I'm aiming to be seeping in the youth players (Islam Feruz looks great), and will be playing Sturridge often to inject that bit of pace and skill.

Youth Products

Bertrand Traoré is one of the biggest prospects of the club, I aim to turn him into a fast and technical left winger.



Islam Feruz was poached from Celtic as a youngster, and now has the potential to be the next Wayne Rooney in real life, lets see how his career pans out on FM13.



Ruben Loftus-Cheek looks like he could be a Lampard-type player, so I will get him tutored and fine tune him into the perfect playmaker.
