The best Fallen Giants to restore in Football Manager 2022

The best Fallen Giants to restore in Football Manager 2022

The classic ‘Fallen Giant’ is always fun, but who are some of the biggest names down on their luck that you could manage in Football Manager 2022.


If you are looking for useful ideas on how to make the most of the latest release from Sports Interactive, then we have a series of ideas waiting for you to explore. In this guide, we want to help you pick a team that comes with a certain reputation. The classic ‘Fallen Giant’ is always fun, but who are some of the biggest names down on their luck in 2021?
 

The Fallen Giants of Football Manager 2022

 

CFC Genoa


Genoa FM22

Starting off, let us head to the city of Genoa. The club, CFC Genoa, are one of the most significant and successful in Italian football history. They have more league titles than Roma, Lazio, and Napoli put together. However, what the Grifone have in history, they lack in modern achievement.

Under new US ownership and with a few Euros to throw around, take over the giants of a region and build a superclub. It will take years, it will take effort, and you will have to trade smart whilst dealing with ambitious ownership. in terms of a challenge, though? Genoa presents the ideal way to have some fun.

Few clubs in Europe have the kind of historical cache that Genoa can call upon. However, this is Football Manager 2022 – the reality is that Genoa have fought relegation, and indeed been relegated, in recent times. They are a club with a fantastic history, but no real means of showing that history off in their current guise.

It will take you many seasons to build a genuine contender, so expect to lose stars before they settle in to this amazing city. As far challenges go, though, Genoa are something worthwhile.
 

Sunderland


Sunderland FM22

While most people see Newcastle United as the North East team who are worth ‘saving’, Sunderland actually have the more reputable history. Aside from the 1990s dalliance with the title, and some early 2000s UEFA Champions League appearances, Newcastle have arguably had a worse history than the Black Cats. Despite the nickname, though, the Wearside giants are very much the definition of bad luck.

Shambolic decision making, short-termism, and a lack of focus beyond the next week has left Sunderland in a disastrous state. Getting out of League One might seem easy enough, but you are under immediate pressure to turn a bad squad into a winning one. Then, you will be expected to reach Premier League football again in quick-snap time.

The challenge is massive, but so is the club. Like Newcastle, Sunderland is an area where everyone supports the local team – it is a massive club with a giant support. Build something here, and you could have a team that could legitimately fight it out at the top-to-middle of the Premier League.

With a fantastical support about all you can count on, though, this is going to be a major challenge for any Football Manager 2022 player.
 

Deportivo La Coruna


Deportivo La Coruna

Slightly older players of Football Manager 2022 will remember the early 2000s era of Super Depor. The likes of Juan Carlos Valeron live long in the memory of football fans. However, for Depor fans, the Galician club are nowhere near those glory days. Title wins in the most astounding manner are a dream; now, you need to help a venerable football club get back on its feet. Times have been tough in Galicia, with local rivals Celta de Vigo having all of the say in the region.

Start slow and build up a team that can escape the crazy lower divisions of Spain, where the difference between top and bottom can be very small indeed. Build a team despite having pennies to play with, and put together a side that can get the fans filling up this famous old stadium once again.

The challenge is huge, but so is the potential. Depor are a club with a genuine history and one that has been at the top of the domestic game before. Restoring them to their former glory is going to be a massive challenge – but it is one that you can absolutely achieve with some effort.
 

Werder Bremen


Werder Bremen FM22

While most fans in northern Germany focus on the plight of Hamburg SV, Werder Bremen are the more modern failure. The early 2000s seen Werder lift titles; the early 2010s seen them play a European Final. Today, they sit in the doldrums of the second tier and are nowhere near the contender they used to be. Alongside the likes of Borussia Dortmund, Werder are one of the few clubs to give Bayern Munich a bloody nose.

Getting them out of the second tier should be easy enough, but it is then building a stable side that can compete for Europe. You need to overcome Dortmund and Bayern, but also the likes of Bayer Leverkusen, Wolfsburg, RB Leipzig, Borussia Monchengladbach, and Stuttgart. That is a long list of teams with arguably more resources than you to pull from.

Throw in other ambitious Bundesliga sides like Hertha Berlin, and you are looking at a very long-term project. You might get the time to build something here, though, so it is a worthwhile save for those looking for something in the top five leagues with proper risk and reward.
