Football Manager 2020 Notts County Team Guide
After a few days off, CPlatts85‘s Football Manager team guides is back with a brand new edition. This time we cross the Irish Sea from England with Notts County to Northern Ireland, and Belfast specifically.
Today I’ll be looking at Glentoran in the Danske Bank Premiership – a club with a long and pride history but is a bit behind the record holder Linfield in terms of most titles won.
Here’s the definite FM 2020 Glentoran team guide, giving you an insight to the clubs transfer budget, club vision and training facilities. We hope you enjoy it.

Glentoran in recent years have taken a back seat in the Danske Bank Premiership as Linfield have dominated domestically. Having won the top division title 23 times, they are no strangers to winning things. Having last won the league in 08/09 season, the club has struggled both on and off the pitch. Having almost gone out of business in 2011 the club has recently been taken over in May 2019 with their sights firmly set on catching, and overtaking, Linfield as the dominant team in Northern Ireland.
The club wants to develop a youthful squad to start its rebuilding program to get back to the top of Northern Irish football. Signing under 23 players will put you in good stead with the Chairman.
The club’s initial goal is to finish in the top half of the league while staying within the stated wage budget. Cup competitions aren’t seen as important so try and keep your best team fit and ready for the league.
The club is looking to build year on year and you’ll have to keep improving if you want to keep your job. With qualification to the Europa League within 3 years the target. Stagnating is not an option.
Hrojve Plum is seen as the best player in the squad. The defensive heart of midfield, the Croatian will be the midfield general disrupting opposition play and allowing the more attacking players to go forward.
Robbie McDaid will be looking to push on from his first 2 seasons with the club. Improving his goalscoring in his second season, Robbie will need to keep up his performances and carry on improving as there are plenty of other strikers in the squad itching to have a chance to prove themselves.
Thomas Byrne has been bouncing around clubs since his release from Brighton as a youngster. Having shown potential from a young age he has yet to settle with a club with Glentoran being his 6th club in 5 years. If Thomas settles quickly there is no doubt he could be a creative force on the wing.
Glentoran are a big club that have fallen on hard times. With some hard work and shrewd transfer business there is no reason why they cannot push Linfield at the top of the division and make it into Europe.
