8 Types Of Football Manager Players - Which One Are You?

Everyone plays FM on their own terms and conditions, but if we had to classify Football Manager players in groups by some common characteristics that define them, these eight would be it. Let's see which type of FM player you are.

The Veteran

The veteran of the Football Manager has been with the series since the beginning, playing the game since the time it was called Championship Manager. The Veteran knows all the hints & tips by heart and usually goes for either a low tier club or tries to bring a fallen giant back to where they belong, such as Rangers a few seasons ago or the challenge of bringing Parma back from Serie D of the Italian football in Football Manager 2017. These guys refuse to play the game on "easy mode" by taking the position at some big club.

The Big Time Charlie

These players don't want to waste their precious time by bringing some small club through the sewage of the lower leagues. They usually go for the biggest clubs in Europe with whom they can take on the challenge of winning the Champions League in their first season. Also, they need to have a sugar daddy backing them so they can splash the cash on Paulo Dybala or some other players they heard were top-class on some Football Manager forum and pass them off as their own "hidden gems".

The Load/Save Manipulator

Completely unacceptable. Probably the second most hated type of Football Manager player, these guys play the game properly for the most part but tend to save their file before every major game or even a cup draw in order to get the best possible outcome. If things don't go their way they quit and try again. Where's the joy in this?! "I won everything in mine first season with Leicester!", sure you did, you fraud.

The "Money Cheat" Exploiter

These guys are the worst kind of players there are. Lowest of the low. Thez usually go with some stable mid-level club and then add a new manager at PSG or Manchester City and sell some of their worst players for ridiculous amounts of money in order to gain unlimited funds. These guys would be tolerable if they just wanted to spend frivolous millions on building a super-squad and be done with it, but they always pretend they did it the honest way and claim to be a managerial prodigy.

The Father Figure

This Football Manager player forms a life-long emotional bond with players who serve him well. They start following the real player on social media and have a genuine interest in his career because he scored 30 goals for his side in Football Manager 2005. The 'Father Figure' definitely needs a reality check but is harming no-one, so let him dream of one day sharing a pint with his virtual son one day in real life.

The Dictator

This one is the total opposite to the 'father Figure' the dictator sees his players as self-absorbed, money-hungry pawns in his pursuit of personal glory. Changing the clubs when he wants, firing the coaching staff and forcing his football philosophy on any new players he manages, his motto is; "Either you adapt to my ways or get transfer listed!". Also the most likely to break his mouse, keyboard or the screen of his laptop when things aren't going his way or someone else makes a mistake, the unpredictability of the Dictator makes him one to avoid if he's mid-session.

The Homegrown Hipster

Usually some of the veterans of the FM series who are now so gifted at virtual management that they feel the urge to challenge themselves even further. They often tend to take over the Basque club of Athletic Bilbao and adopt the policy of only using home-grown players in their squads. Sure where's the challenge in scouting and buying players from anywhere? A REAL manager nurtures talent through the youth system.

The Noob

Every year with every new release of FM a noob of the series is born, bless his ignoramus soul. He loves football and knows everything there is and then gets convinced by his mates that he needs to jump on the train of the best game ever. So he goes on Steam and pays for the game and patiently waits for the game to install, his grin widens as he chooses what type of player reputation his manager had (international footballer, always), but then... "What the hell is going on here?". Completely out of his depth after jumping in at the deep-end, The Noob doesn't know where to begin. Commonly the butt of the joke amongst his mates with questions such as "How do I sign players?" and "What the hell is a trequartista?", it will be a few years before he can laugh at the next noob, but hang in there, as long as he doesn't use the 'money cheat' he'll be fine.
