Everyone loves taking a club from the depths of obscurity to the dizzying heights of Europe in Football Manager, and here's the perfect team to attempt that with in FM18.

Forest Green Rovers are making their Football League debut this season, and many have written their survival changes off already. Despite the odds being staked against them, Mark Cooper's side have some fight in them and have threatened to push away from the lower reaches of the standings in recent weeks.

Your task on FM18 should be to top that, not only avoid an immediate return to the Conference in your debut season, but build a side sustainable enough to thrive in the Football League and climb the pyramid from there.

In Forest Green Rovers, you'll take on a club with no money but bags of character, a team that has already made history by becoming the first vegan outfit in Britain. There would be something ironically poetic about guiding them to Europe and defeating Hamburger SV over two legs.
