    Challenge 26 - Gre-No-Li

    Challenge 26 - Gre-No-Li







    Gunnar Gren, Gunnar Nordahal and Nils Liedholm, together the trio led AC Milan and Sweden to glory in the 40s and 50s. The journey began when the three won the 1948 Olympic Gold Medal in London, and over the coming years league titles galore where won. Gunnar Nordahl was the chief architect with a record of 210 goals in 257 games, winning five top league scorer awards and is still Milan's all time top scorer, while his record for Sweden also weren't too shabby with 43 goals in just 33 games! Nils Liedholm would captain Sweden to the 1958 World Cup Final where they were put to the sword by Pele's Brazil 5-2, while for Milan he would account for many of the assists for Nordahl's goal, as well as make 359 apps over 12 years, racking in with 81 goals. Gunnar Gren spent the least time with Milan but still chipped in with 38 goals in his 4 seasons with the club, and was also part of that 1958 World Cup squad and could boast a sound strike rate with 32 in 57 for his National side.

    Now it's your turn! Your challenge is to take over AC Milan and sign three Swedish forwards with points awarded for Goals, Assists and Man of the Match's for the trio as well as club success. Additional points will also be rewarded for Italian Top Goalscorer, Italian Player of the Year awards as well as the FIFA World Player awards.



    RULES

    - Any database can be used (Super Swedes FTW ).

    - You can play any tactic as long as your 3 forwards play up front (SC or F) and it has at least 2 wide players (anywhere... D, DM, M, AM) and 3 defenders.

    - This is a one season challenge.

    - You can sell and loan out as many players as you wish, but you can only buy/loan the 3 Swedish players you wish to use for the challenge.


    POINTS

    Serie A - 1st 500 pts, 2nd 200 pts, 3rd 100 pts, 4th 50 pts

    Italian Cup - Winners 100 pts, Runners Up 50 pts, Semi Finalists 20 pts

    Champions League - Winners 1000 pts, Runners Up 500 pts, Semi Finalists 200 pts

    UEFA Cup - Winners 500 pts, Runners Up 200 pts, Semi Finalists 100 pts

    FIFA World Player - 1st 500 pts, 2nd 200 pts, 3rd 100 pts

    Italian Player of the Year - 1st 100 pts, 2nd 50 pts, 3rd 20 pts

    Italian Top Scorer - 1st 50 pts, 2nd 20 pts, 3rd 10 pts

    Every goal from the trio - 10 pts

    Every assist from the trio - 5 pts

    Every MOM from the trio - 10 pts


    SCREENSHOTS

    - All competitions and awards which achieve points, season stats for the trio.





    Thanks to swedishcmgod for coming up with the idea, as well as Craig Forrest and The Eejit for the support in preparing the challenge.

    I imagine (hope) this will be a fun challenge and wish you well in your recruiting and your season ahead.

    So you can sign midfielders or even defenders and lump them up top if you wanted?

    Foddy - doesn't your formation have only 1 ST and 3 AM?

    are those AM classed as "forwards" like AMC says in the OP?

    I'm pretty sure the tactic needs to have three forwards

    I agree with Craigie .... the idea was to have either 3 SC or an FL/SC/FR combination. Lets see what AMC says.

    As said above 3 players on the forward line, so the tactic is invalid I'm afraid Foddy.

    Can you update the first post to ensure there is no dispute about the formation required. Might also be worth including where the wide players can be. My assumption is anywhere, eg D, DM, M, AM or F R/L
