Challenge 39 - Il Grande Torino


https://i.postimg.cc/5yWTCS3J/Torino.jpg (https://postimages.org/)


In the 1940s Torino were the dominant side in Italy, thanks to manager Ernest Erbstein and his attacking W-M system, they won Serie A five times in a row, a Coppa Italia in 1943 (the first Italian club to win the double), and provided the National side with the majority of their team - in one game against Hungary in 1947 only the goalkeeper didn't play for Il Grande Torino! Their success saw them break records for points won, saw them score over 100 goals in two consecutive seasons, and they had gone unbeaten at home for over six years up until the tragedy, which also included a 10-0 win over Alessandria which remains the biggest win in the league to date.

Unfortunately tragedy struck on the 4th May 1949, as the plane carrying the team back from a testimonial match against Benfica crashed into a retaining wall at the back of the Basilica of Superga, which stands on a hill on the outskirts of Turin, with all 31 people on board dying. After the tragedy at the request of the other clubs Torino were awarded the title (they led Inter by four points with four to play), while the Italian FA asked each team the following season to donate a player to Torino. The club finished the following season in 6th as city rivals Juventus lifted the trophy, and within 10 years they had been relegated to Serie B. Since the tragedy the club has only managed one more Serie A title in the 1975/76 season, and has spent much of their time after that bouncing between Serie A and Serie B, although they did reach the 1992 UEFA Cup Final losing to Ajax on away goals and won the Coppa Italia the following season.

Your challenge is to take over Torino and assemble a squad of players from your fellow Serie A teams ahead of the second season and try to conquer Italy like Il Grande Torino did in the 1940s.


RULES

- Oct 2018 update (Saturn v6 can be used)

- you must use a non wib-wob W-M formation (DL - DC - DR, MC - MC, AM- AM, FL - SC - FR), arrows, player and team instruction changes are allowed but you have to play with attacking mentality at ALL times.

- you get no points for the first season, this is used to assemble your squad for the second season, only the results in your second season count.

- by the time the first competitive domestic game of the second season kicks-off, you must have signed one player (no more than one) from every Serie A team who play in the first season (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018%E2%80%9319_Serie_A)

- free signings (assuming they come straight from a Serie A club and not showing as No Club) are allowed as well as normal transfers, however loans are not allowed.

- you can only sign the 19 players from the other Serie A teams (so cancel the pre-arranged transfers) and they must be Italian (no 2nd nationalities allowed), and you must sell any non Italian players in your squad as well.

- no month-to-month contracts.

- backroom staff can only be signed if Italian and also coming from one of the eligible Serie A teams (once again only one person from one team.

- you can only manage Torino during the challenge, you cannot manage any International teams.

Great job AMC getting this up. A 2 season challenge, with 1 scoring season, sounds like a nice wee quick one. But it will be tough signing the players and playing in that formation!

On the first season, I can't buy another players than the 19 italians of the challenge, that's it?
Or can I buy as I want if I sell them before season 2?

AMC
20-05-19, 08:39 AM
No you can only sign players from the 19 other Serie A teams, rules amended to clarify this.

What about an italian player with 30 italians cap and an egyptian second nationality (how is he? :confused:). Can we sign him?

As stated in the rules no 2nd nationalities allowed so he isn't eligible.

All set for the 2nd season!

I got a surprising 2nd place in the first season. It was a shame to have to sell the best players on the team because they were non-Italians.

Same season than Cesarteixeira!

My 3-4-3 attacking tactic worked more than I expected, finishing 2nd.
The idea was to keep the best players to make the best season as possible, selling higher the foreign players and being more attractive if I qualified for a european cup.
The result is perfect for me!!! I sold for example Nkoulou more than 9M, Niang 12,5M and Ljajic 15M!!!

Couple of Q's

1 - Can I keep any backroom staff who are NOT Italian?

2 - Assume I am fine to hire any backroom staff who are Italian and are "free" - i.e "No Club/No Nation" (so I'm not taking from a fellow Serie A club)

AMC
11-06-19, 11:46 AM
1) Are they already at the club? If so we'll have to say yes as others may have kept them who have completed the challenge already.

2) No, as per the rules they have to be signed from one of the eligible clubs and can't be no club same as players.

1 - Some Argentine fella there I think I'll prob keep - Raimondi - a coach

Haven't got back on this yet but will this week

I guess this challenge is interesting as you do not want to "buy the first Juventus player you can" but maybe take a risk and see if you can buy a "better/higher quality" player down the line

All performance related I guess as if you do well that could happen but if you have a poor season 1 maybe none of them want to join you :lol:

17-06-19, 02:44 PM
You also have to strike a balance on getting the best players and putting a squad together that can compete. No point buying all strikers and then playing with no defenders.

So after finishing 6th in Serie A in season 1, Europa League beckons. After selling as many players as possible throughout, and at the end of the season, I managed to sell for an impressive total of £69m , it left me in a good position to bring in some quality.

Lets see who I managed to bring in. In season 1 there was only 1 signing...

From AC Milan, central defender and Italy international
https://i.postimg.cc/P5DP5prs/Milan-Caldara.png

This meant we had loads of work to do in the summer. A lot of the business was done before the window opened. So on the 1st of July it was new faces all round at training.

From Chievo, attacking midfielder...
https://i.postimg.cc/43CH6vFx/Chievo-Garritano.png

From Empoli, Left sided forward...
https://i.postimg.cc/JhbDPy9c/Empoli-La-Gumina.png

From Sassuolo, a young striker...
https://i.postimg.cc/vTDmFDSK/Sassuolo-Scamaca.png

From Parma, experienced right back...
https://i.postimg.cc/DzKmJv8W/Parma-Gazzola.png

From Lazio, central midfielder...
https://i.postimg.cc/1528ScSr/Lazio-Murgia.png

From Sampdoria, deep lying midfielder...
https://i.postimg.cc/PxXxySbT/Sampdoria-Capezzi.png

From Atalanta, on a bosman, winger on both sides...
https://i.postimg.cc/8P065gRW/Atalanta-D-Alessandro.png

From Bologna, the only other bosman signing, central midfielder...
https://i.postimg.cc/wxWtfYbP/Bologna-Rizzo.png

From the champions Juventus, left back...
https://i.postimg.cc/yYkD2pMN/Juventus-Spinnazola.png

From Napoli, central and left sided defender...
https://i.postimg.cc/9ft0y67L/Napoli-Luperto.png

From Frosinone, winger on both sides...
https://i.postimg.cc/QtmBZ2NF/Frosinone-Paganini.png

From SPAL, experienced holding midfielder...
https://i.postimg.cc/1XT39Pk3/SPAL-Schiatarella.png

That was that for day 1, but just 2 days later the next man in the door was from Fiorentina, a young winger who can play on both wings...

https://i.postimg.cc/50bHG4Jc/Fiorentina-Sottil.png

It took a couple of weeks to get the next one sorted. Our biggest outlay, £15.25m for last seasons best young player, top scorer at Genoa, striker...
https://i.postimg.cc/gjBnn3Zd/Genoa-Dalmonte.png

Next up was legend, leader and former one club man, from Roma...
https://i.postimg.cc/nz3LPqT7/Roma-De-Rossi.png

Inter was a tough one, so I settled on a goalkeeper having missed out on others...
https://i.postimg.cc/Y0Svrdjb/Inter-Di-Gennaro.png

I didn't get who I wanted from Cagliari, so settled on experienced defender/midfielder...
https://i.postimg.cc/T35W5N0s/Cagliari-Padoin.png

My final signing was on the final week, 5 days before the start of the season. From Udinese, it cost £10m, my second highest total, central midfielder...
https://i.postimg.cc/jqk56QDY/Udinese-Mandragora.png

So the stage was set for a go at Juventus. Although more likely, a push for the Champions League.

I didn't keep the savegame because you entered my score, so I thought it was validated...

If you look the date of the screenshots, you will see 24/5, and the first international games are after the 1/9, so I thought it was enough to proove it...

So the season is over, it was not as good as I hoped. So many games I should have won that I didn't. Sirigu was awful for the first 3/4 months of the season and it cost me badly.

First up, league position: 8th = 300 points, plus 77 league goals = 77 points
https://i.postimg.cc/t4n71hmX/league.png

None of my players made it into team of the year, although Bellotti finished second top scorer with 32 goals. Piantek was insane: 2nd top scorer = 50 points
https://i.postimg.cc/k4s5rwDy/top-scorer.png

Bellotti did win Italian Player of the Year: 1st POTY = 100 points
https://i.postimg.cc/05Zzh5wq/Italian-poty.png

We had a good cup run, but Inter beat us in the final, despite us dominating: cup runner up = 500 points
https://i.postimg.cc/LsfqWzzy/cup-final.png

We didn't have much success getting players capped. Only Caldara, Belotti and Sirigu managed anything: 2 starts, 1 bench appearance = 50 points
https://i.postimg.cc/pdNrKpgK/italy-game-2.png
https://i.postimg.cc/m2DP4xY1/italy-game-3.png
https://i.postimg.cc/dVPsND96/italy-fixture-list.png

Strangeley there was no goalkeeper of the year, don't know what happened? Game bug perhaps. Sirigu got it in 18/19, but nobody got it 19/20?

Other screenies of staff in, transfers in EOS and Loans IN included here.

The thing is, in my save there were 4 games between those dates, 6 in the whole season, but only 4 between those dates. So on a players stat page it will show up, if they played all games, as 6. But that would be wrong.
Your posts suggest there were 7 games, that all took place within those dates. We don't know if that is true or not, but impossible to know without a screenie of the fixture list, or at a date of the games.

It's the second challenge you don't believe me... I really don't understand... I'm lucky because I found a savegame on my second PC. Italy played 8 games between the 2 dates. All what you say about Italian games in this challenge are wrong...:confused: Italy plays the 2 first games of the season in SEPTEMBER (as always) and my screenshots shows the 24/5, easy to understand that it is ok...
No matter...
Here are the fixtures of Italy...
it's not 4 games as you say...
not 5, not 6.......
Italy plays 8 games between september 2016 and april 2017...

It’s not about not believing you mate, we test all challenges before we release them and in our tests we never saw Italy play 8 games so we required evidence to see where we may have gone wrong.

From the screenshots you’ve now provided it appears you have started in 2016 and not 2018, this would explain the difference in the number of games Italy played as opposed to what they did in our testing.

I’m not sure what other challenge you’re referring about, off the top of my head I had a query with your score for Challenge 25 as I needed to refresh my knowledge on the challenge and you also didn’t take pics of your transfers and loans in/out which was asked for in the rules, in that case I gave you the benefit of the doubt when by the letter of the law I didn’t need to.

No, AMC, in the challenge 25 it was my own fault, not the good screenshots to proove.
There is no problem, but in the Brexit challenge Dweatherston was already surprised of my signings...
I use Tapani Patch, perhaps it's an explication for the number of games...
Sorry for my first post, you are making this website and these challenges live... But I have the feeling that all the results I post are suspicious...

They’re not suspicious per se but when it doesn’t fit in with our testing then we will query it, as you hadn’t shown dates of the Italy games and it was more than we experienced in testing we needed evidence as much for our understanding too, same with signing players we couldn’t when testing.

Tapani isn’t the problem though, starting in 2016 as opposed to 2018 is though for this challenge.

I used Tapani 2.21 I think, I never change the starting date...
But I found my savegame, no problem!

Season 1

Respectable league position of 9th – had a decent end of season charge – feck knows if we get an Intertoto place etc though!

We were the most entertaining team of the division with loads of goals scored but a LOT against as well :eek: :behindsofa:

Surprised nobody has come in for Niang? Think I got £15m or so for him.

Only just listed him

Didn't wanna upset him when he was playing well for me!

Jiust agreed a deal with Schalke for about £8m for him I think

Serie A


5th – 600 points

• Struggled to find a decent tactic for a while
• Then went about 5 games and 5 red cards in those games.
• Belotti and Sau (both my strikers) banned for 7 games!
• Hit the heavy heights of about 3rd/4th but then had a bad spell in final ¼ before coming back to finish a very respectable 5th (I think!)

Good job sir. But I think your points for top scorer should be 20 not 10. Thus, total score would be 867

Where is that in rules? Can't see it?

I had 10 points as he was 3rd for Striker of the year or top goalscorer

100 points then for player of the year
