Challenge 41 - A Race Against Time! - Part 1

https://i.imgur.com/xrVyZfN.jpg?1


The year is 2020 and a global pandemic has hit the world forcing people to stay at home and postponing all sport in most countries! Liverpool came points away from sealing their first Premier League Title victory before the Premier League was suspended, the question is could you have won them the title before the crisis hit?

You will take over Liverpool for the 2019/20 season and making no transfers try and win the Premier League title in record time.

This challenge is all about speed and you will be awarded more points the quicker you can wrap up the title, with an emphasis on attacking football as you will get 2 bonus points per league goal you score. Your performance in other trophies are irrelevant to this challenge.

Early march still going strong have had a few injuries but nothing major and haven't yet had an injury crisis in a certain area of the team. If my team stays fit and healthy till the end of the season i can't see me dropping many points. Man city had a blip in jan but since then haven't dropped many points

Helluva shout - just couldn't find the league goals but yes - will post last season fixtures

If you go on ya name under club info and then either landmarks or achievements it’ll have the date you’ve won it, then just count how many games before then.

For goals ya can go on history and then domestic leagues and it’ll bring it up.

OK - so I "completed" this challenge just part of my normal game on CM from the new update ( always play with Liverpool and Swansea)

I just started my 2nd season so unable to put full league table up and I rested players in last few games as was focusing on other comps so I know I won't have that good a score compared to others (and I don't know how to wib wob either!) but hey - it's all about participating!

When did I win the league? - After 37th game - 200 points
How many goals scored? - 96 goals x 2 = 192 points

Total Points = 392

Enjoy playing with the greatest club in the world people :) :love: :cheer:

I had a quick bash at this today. The first time I've ever played with Liverpool.

The league was won but it took longer than I had hoped. A spirited Wolves team wouldn't go away until the last few games when they hit a dip.

34 games and the league went to Anfield.

https://i.postimg.cc/3rtmf7Ms/Screenshot-2020-04-10-at-11-26-24.png

My league form dropped off after winning the league due to injuries to Firmino and Salah which also led to my Champions League exit at the semi final stage. I didn't bother playing the FA Cup final due to the challenge being over. Community Shield, Super Cup, Club World Cup and League Cup. The first 3/4's of the season the team was unstoppable, goal galore.

https://i.postimg.cc/d151tswr/Screenshot-2020-04-10-at-11-30-49.png

I'll give this challenge another go at some point.

This was a fun one-season challenge. The front three are all pretty special and Fabinho also played a starring role. Virgil van Dijk had a lot of mediocre performances but our overall defensive record was decent, so I'm happy enough. There are some fun players waiting in the wings too - Minamino played superbly and Harvey Elliott had a nice spell when Mane & Salah were at the African Cup of Nations.


- March 2020 update (Saturn v9 can be used).
- wib-wob is allowed, anything goes tactics wise.
Used a non-wib-wob 4-1-2-3 almost the entire season - away at Norwich was the exception as their 4-1-3-2 with midfield runners was creating loads of first-half chances (which they thankfully missed) so I put a second holding midfielder on. Apart from this I didn't find much need to tweak, we were generally dominating games and whether we won or not came down to the conversion rate - generally fantastic but Spurs fared best against us, taking 4pts from our two games. They did then help me out though by signing Jamie Vardy in January - although Leicester still had a great season, their record before his departure was outrageous and suggested I might need all 38 games to win the title!


- no transfers or loans are allowed.

Fair enough. I did also win the Champions League, 1-0 over Ajax in the Final, which was great given how heavily I rotated, particularly early in the season.

Thanks for the reminder about the resutls thread! Might try a few more so will remember to post there in future.

I was pretty impressed with how well I did with a non-wib-wobbed tactic TBH, but I guess the front three are pretty bloody special so it's hard for them not to score! Probably the highlight of the season was winning 5-0 away in Paris in the first leg of the Champions League Semi-Final, although of course none of those count for challenge points!

Had a very interesting season, scoring 1174 points. Could've done better due to African Cup of Nations and a shitload of injuries. Firmino was out for a month, Mane three weeks twice, van Dijk grabbed a month off, Alisson even had two months on the sidelines, Robertson etc...Fabinho was suspended a LOT, haha.

Gomez did ok next to VVD, Lovren was suprisingly good and Matip is godawful... Milner was a standout as backup, full backs were amazing (TAA racking up like 25 assists).
In midfield we did a lot of rotating and Minamino, AOC and Shaqiri did well. Keita chipped in as backup DMC and even Lallana got some games.
Most surprising to me was the fact that even though he was our best rated player, the team scored more goals when we played without Bobby Firmino. Salah as striker was a lot more deadly, but in the end we needed them both.

Fun little challenge this! Thx!

Thought I'd give a go myself and although I only dropped 2 points in my first 31 games, some of you won it quicker dropping more point so guess City performed better on my save, ah well. I couldn't manage the amazing amount of goals some of you guys managed either... still a decent enough effort...

Well that was an enjoyable 1 season challenge. This Liverpool squad is incredible, great versatility and depth; very reminiscent of the ODB Roma in a lot of ways. I adopted a 442 and managed to go unbeaten in the league but that would ultimately be my downfall as too many draws definitely cost me the chance of wrapping up the title much sooner. I slipped up on the 33rd game of the season after drawing 1-1 with West Ham which cost me a whopping 100 points. Cups were not my priority and I trotted out a B team for all cup competitions; said B team did incredibly well in the Champions League to reach the final but it was my A team that would play the final and I was massively let down being beaten 1-0 in the final by Juventus.

I think some tweaking on my part with the tactic could yield a better score for me but I'm happy to be invincible. My tactic does not do the full backs any favours in the slightest (TAA and Robertson finished with 7 and 6 assists respectively) and when you've got that sort of firepower at the back you need to be utilising it. Firmino and Salah were my go to front two and they finished on 25 and 26 goals respectively (personally quite happy with that even distribution). Mané was my star performing chipping in with 23 assists from the left side of midfield and Joe Gomez outshined Van Dijk at the back.

Well, I enjoyed this challenge so much I decided to have another go at it. I re-evaluated the squad and decided to go with a 352 formation in order to utilise the squad better. The results were much better, without having to change too much of the wib/wob.

TAA finished the season with 14 assists from the right, with Robertson chipping in with 9 assists from the left. Salah found much better form in front of goal with 47 goals in a free role and Firmino contributed a steady 28 goals and 14 assists. Mané was again superb contributing 17 goals and topping the assist chart with 18.

In the league we were absolutely bossing it, going 31 games unbeaten. Enter Jose Mourinho. He inflicts our only defeat of the season on us and it delays the title going to us by a game costing me 100 points!

Damn Jose! Still more points than your first effort and a good score, nice work :ok:

I've been attempting this a few more times since my last attempt and I put in a run where I got exactly the same score (same game winning the league and the same amount of goals scored :lol:). Honestly, AJ's effort is phenomenal. In order to stand a chance of topping his score you'll have to win the league by Game #30, something that so far has been proving to be challenging because of Man City just chipping away behind me.

So I've become slightly obsessed with this challenge. My third submission sees the title wrapped up one game earlier than my previous best which pushes me beyond the 1000 point barrier. I shifted the tactic once more to the infamous 433 which has served many people well.

Goals came evenly across the front three of Mané (55 goals), Firmino (54 goals) and Salah (46 goals). In the assist charts it was Mané who topped them also (23 assists), with Salah (21 assists) and TAA (20 assists) making up the top 3.

Fantastic season.. swept away all before on one heck of a ride. 30 games to mathematically wrap title up. Few times during the season i thought it wouldn't go my way, a few last minute winners or 1-0 wins.. But also some emphatic hidings.. City 5-0 away, Watford 7-1 Home, Man Utd 4-0 Home, Everton 6-0 away and 7-1 home, Palace 7-0

League cup winners v Man Utd

Nope, I was crowned champions after the 31st game and finished the season with less goals scored than my previous best.

It's so frustrating. TOTK won the league with City behind him on exactly the same points. I knocked myself out of all cup competitions to see if I could do better in the league but in hindsight I think this is the wrong move as the fixture congestion can actually play in to your favour.

...and that is my final attempt at this challenge. I'd need some incredible amount of luck to be crowned champions after 29 games (28 points ahead is a huge ask). After 19 revisions of my tactic I don't think I've got a tactic at my disposal to match the firepower of Topofthekop or AJ.

I used Scemoka's 4-3-3 Heavy pressing tactic as it was the best fit for Klopp's tactics I know.

Navigated the African Nations cup losses of Salah and Mane well (both made it to the Semi's). Problem area was centre back. 5th and 6th choice centrbacks Van Den Berg and Hoever had 10 and 8 starts respectively. Injuries and Suspensions mostly, including this from big Virgil.

Hello guys, I will try with 4-1-3-2 default tactic, sure it won't be a best score...Someone played this challenge with a non wib wob tactic or not centralized tactic?
Is it possible to recall players from loan?
Can I sell any players?

You can recall players from loan and sell if you want. Good luck mate

Hello troops! I took on this challenge, my first time playing cm0102 in a long time. I'm back with a bang...well...back.

Good challenge, nice and quick and enjoyable. Liverpool are unreal, but Allison was injured a lot for me, and we battered teams often without winning which is annoying.

However, we won it in 33 games, mainly due to the others being crap!

https://i.postimg.cc/sx6nYzSx/champions-33-games.png

thought I'd scored 100 to keep it a nice round number, but ended up with 101

https://i.postimg.cc/wvzbH0gq/101-goals.png

No transfers

So I make that 600 points for league win in 33 games, and 202 points for the goals

802 in total.

Of course all this is non wib wob as usual with my gameplay.

Hi everyone! First post for me (having been on these forums on and off for a few years previously) and first time playing the March 2020 update. Such amazing work all round, keeping the game alive in such a brilliant way. Love these challenges - so impressed at all of the 38 games played 38 games won seasons!

Lots of fun to use a bit of wib/wob (only really cracked it during lockdown thanks to this forum!) so I created a new tactic for this challenge. It did ok, not as good as I'd hoped but a decent score. How did you all score so many goals btw?!

Won the PL after 32 games:

My formation:

Would have liked more goals - seemed like lots of opposition keepers got 9s and 10s (although that might just be in my head), I lost to City TWICE and struggled to get good performances out of VVD (average rating of 7.06 - yuck). Mane, Salah and Firmino were superb.

Points:

32 games: 700 points
99 goals: 198 points

Total: 898 points

Looking forward to trying more of these :)
