By spaskecar | February 14, 2020 | 6886 Views

Today we talk about the 2018/2019 sensation Wolverhampton Wanderers.

They had just been promoted to the Premier League, and many expected them to get relegated straight away, but the manager Nuno Espírito Santo did wonders at the wheel.

They finished 7th and got Europa League qualification, and that is where Wolverhampton FM2020 story starts.


Managing Wolves in FM2020


When starting a new career with Wolves in FM20, you will replace Nuno Espírito Santo and sign a two-year contract worth $38.5k per week.

Wolverhampton has a fascinating history that many don’t know about.

Their most significant era was in the 50s when they won the English top division three times and finished second five times.

They’ve won the FA Cup four times, the Carabao Cup two times, and the Community Shield four times.

In total, including other minor trophies, they’ve won a total of 22 trophies, which is very surprising for most people.


They play their games at the Molineux with a capacity of 30,852.

In Football Manager 2020 Wolverhampton Wanderers have:

  • Excellent training facilities
  • Excellent youth facilities
  • Adequate recruitment

Wolverhampton FM20 has this fantastic squad that surprised everyone last season and finished 7th in the Premier League.

The mix of experience and youth that Nuno Espírito Santo has brought to Wolverhampton was terrific.

We’ll talk about these players in a more detailed way in the squad section of the article.

For now, we’ll just say that you, as a new manager, are brought to the club to make it better, and some areas need improvements.

Let’s talk about the Club Vision and five-year plan.


Wolves Club Vision and Five Year Plan in FM 2020

Club Vision Wolverhampton Football Manager 2020

The first thing you see in club culture is Sign Portuguese players, and that was a complete surprise to me.

Former manager Nuno Espírito Santo left such a significant mark on the club that the club owners want to continue what he was doing. And that means signing mostly Portuguese players.

That is the most critical objective, and it is desired.

Other objectives are only preferred, and they are to sign high reputation players, develop players using the club’s youth system, and play entertaining football.

When it comes to the five-year plan, we’ll only take a look at the current season as there is plenty of work to do.

  • Premier Division: Top Half – this is easily accomplishable with the current squad
  • FA Cup: Reach 5th round – if you’re lucky to avoid some Premier League giants, this is also easily achievable
  • EURO Cup: Reach Quarter-Final – This is probably the most significant challenge
  • Carabao Cup: Reach Fourth Round – Again, with a bit of luck this is also accomplishable

The board has been pretty reasonable with the objectives, and you can probably fulfill all of their wishes and maybe even overachieve a bit.
