thinking of starting a game in the french league as im bored of epl, championship and la liga, dont fancy bundesleague or serie A with all that Co-owning players. i havnt managed a french club since cm2 i think when i was marseille.

im thinking of PSG as lyon and marseille will be the more dominant teams. i dont only want to win the french league i would want to be a serious force in europe. what is it like for attracting top players and what is it like money wise, what sort of budget will i get for winning the league? how many teams qualify for the champions league is it top 2 or 3?

also if theres any class french youngsters please post on here and il check them out or if i have any hidden gems at PSG as i know nothing about french football

will i qualify for champs league 1st season? i was thinking of going in the editor and loaning ronaldinho back for a season to kick start things and removing the stadium expansion restriction

I often struggle with PSG, but it is one of my ambitions to do well with them.

Transfer budget wise, you'll get around £2-3million, with a decent wage budget. You're best bet is qualifying for the Europa League, as I highly doubt you will qualify for the Champions League.

PSG have one of the best youth academies in the league, with more than several of them being rated three and a half stars. It's a very difficult challenge, but very worthwhile I am guessing.

their is obvious youngsters like tafer and sanogo but players like Grenier, Areola, Digne, Boucher also turn out pretty good if trained well and play often

Teams 1 & 2 go directly in CL, Team 3 qualifications for CL.
Teams 4 & 5 go to Euro Cup qual. round nr. 4
Team in position 6 - Euro Cup 3rd qual. round

And all of this depends on the winners of coupe de la ligue & french cup

Well, if u r using LFC MARSHALL's patch, u r going to struggle a lot because ur best player(Sessegnon) is not there. Otherwise,if played wisely, u can reach CL in first season like i did(won the league.. ;) )

Just need to strengthen the defense and buy backups for other positions and get rid of craps.
Normally after a month,the board provides extra money to use and it is useful. You have FANTASTIC youth players in ur u-19 team and many of them are stars of tomorrow(if trained properly). I would suggest selling the keeper Coupet and buying Enyeama for 275k and many more transfers..

PS: i m thinking about making a guide about it.. :)

Areola becomes world class, hes a great keeper to hold on to, as he will be followed by big clubs for big money.
