Following our piece on lower league teams to manage, I had the urge to start a new save. There were many good options, but one club sparked my interest. União da Madeira are a provincial club based on the Portuguese island of Madeira, a small rocky archipelago just off the coast of Morocco.
With the Football Manager winter update approaching in the coming weeks, and some saves going a little stale, I thought it would be a perfect opportunity to suggest some ‘alternative saves’.
In this particular list I have chosen teams that aren’t in the biggest leagues, and more lower league standard. Every club has a unique selling point, some for their history, some for the decline in recent years and other clubs for many different reasons.
