Yes, that's right, another one http://champman0102.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/nod.gif

Are you a tactial genius? Do you kick arse in creating tactics from scratch? Do you prefer tactics with 2 strikers? Really? http://champman0102.co.uk/forum/images/smilies/suspicious.gif


Remember how those two used to work? Well, it's time to re-create it!


You have one season at Sevilla. One true goal. Create a legendary partnership up front!


- use September 2009 update - http://www.champman0102.co.uk/downlo...?do=file&id=51 (http://www.champman0102.co.uk/downloads.php?do=file&id=51)
- play one season
- you must build from scratch and use 442 flat - no other formation allowed
- arrows and wibwobbing allowed
- you must buy 2 players who will form your partnership up front
- no further signings allowed
- you cannot use your existing strikers (or any other players) as one of the "partners"
- you have to keep track of when your players score together (when one of your strikers scores while the other is off the pitch, that goal doesn't count)


- your newly created tactic
- transfers in at the end of the season


- 5 points per goal scored by your chosen men in the attacking line
- 100 pts for CL title
- 50 pts for UEFA Cup title
- 75 pts for Spanish title
- 25 pts for Spanish Cup

09-07-14, 01:28 PM
well done for completing mate!

06-09-14, 12:48 PM
Needs revision as I don't think Sevilla plays CL anymore.

or a link to appropriate dB.

06-09-14, 12:52 PM
Sept 2009 update is probably in downloads section?!

06-09-14, 12:58 PM
sure, I'll bet. But in order to make it easier and more attractive, a direct link would be awesome, no?

12-12-14, 01:28 PM
4-4-2 flat. It means that the defenders, the midfielders and the 2 forwards are on there own line, right?
No players in the defensive midfield line and the offensive midfield line?

12-12-14, 01:46 PM
442 flat means no arrows I think.

12-12-14, 02:15 PM
Arrows allowed!!! So?

12-12-14, 03:26 PM
Arrows allowed!!! So?

Sorry my bad. What you were saying is right ie GK - DL DC DC DR - ML MC MC MR - SC SC

Craig Forrest
12-12-14, 04:06 PM
Arrows allowed (as it states in the OP)
Wib/Wob allowed (as it states in the OP)

4 flat across the back
4 flat across midfield
2 flat up front


13-12-14, 08:36 PM
Tactic created and tested!!!
wib wob prohibited for me, no chance for a great score, but I will do my best!!!

16-12-14, 03:42 PM
I really have to play with Palop as a goalkeeper? :cry:

Craig Forrest
16-12-14, 05:02 PM
Use one of the other keepers if you'd like :P

17-12-14, 06:32 PM
Yakubu(Everton) and Pandev(Lazio) bought. I think they will be good barbers!

20-12-14, 01:30 PM
Best of luck mate :ok:

29-12-14, 11:57 AM

05-01-15, 06:04 PM
I wanted to try this challenge with my creation "I Need Passing"....








195+165+100+75+25= 560

05-01-15, 08:32 PM
"I need passing" is a wib wob tactic?

05-01-15, 09:49 PM
"I need passing" is a wib wob tactic?

Yes,it's my best tactic...

If you know the two necessary rudiments to use it,you can win in every league...

06-01-15, 01:27 AM
Great effort on this Giopos! :clap:

31-07-15, 06:34 AM
I like these 1 season challenges, but I encountered a lot of tehnical problems for this challenge, that I had to restart it like 6 times :D

1st time...I didn't buy 2nd attacker fast enough as deadline is at 21.08
2nd time....I forgot to register attacker for CL
3rd time...I registered 25 players early, so I didnt get an option to add a player to registered players, meaning I did not get my 2nd attacker registered again

4th time...I finally did fine...but I wasnt statisfied with my 2nd attacker at all after 2 months...
5th time...I got new attacker, but he already played in intertoto cup, so I couldn't register it for CL :d

Finally in my 6th try I did everything fine :D

So here we go...my results

I made tactics similar like I did with 325 MC Challenge, based on 4231 that I downloaded from site looong time ago, of course I had to reinvent it a bit, so that both of my strikers score a lot of goals. I did a little adjustemnt 2 months after challenge started, which gave me a bit of a boost for the rest of the season.

75 - League
25 - Spanish Cup

Total of 500 points...

Damn Champions League Finals and red card...but its good result...Im really satisfied with my attacking duo

If I won that, i would be 7 goals behind Fodster, but it's great result, great challenge, really hard...

Unlucky on CL Final

Great score...............but maybe expected after trying 6 times :lol:

I have never created 4-4-2 tac before. So this tactic, which I created in an hour, makes me happy when I beat Barcelona (3:0 at home and 0:3 away)

Nice work Zion.

19-02-16, 07:32 PM
May have to give this a go at some point.

20-02-16, 04:02 PM
Wow - great score Zion - I only got 130 points :rofl:

Looks like a decent pairing who really fired when they got going - looks like you must have had a kick ass wib-wob tactic as well to do so well in the league (I don't know/want to know how to wib wob)

Top effort tho - probably in the Top 5 scores or so :clap:

This was my attempt at this. Trawling the market to see who was interested, decided to try something a bit different...

http://postimg.org/image/dr16itss1/ - one described once as the Italian Tony Casiraghi, the other as being born offside. Had high hopes for these two.

http://postimg.org/image/5frzig9v5/ - solid 442, two bruisers in the middle, with the threat coming from the flanks as the team have players with good crossing stats.

Here goes...

League 75 points: http://postimg.org/image/tkwdb5lo1/

Cup 25 points: http://postimg.org/image/d4jd76bn5/

Luca Toni 26 goals when playing together with Pippo 130 points: http://postimg.org/image/qvtcpvnu9/

Inzaghi 19 goals when playing with Toni 95 points: http://postimg.org/image/e4yh535gx/

Total score: 75 + 25 + 130 + 95 = 325 points

16-05-16, 10:06 PM
Proper old school strikers - nice choices!

I :pray: we beat Sevilla on Wednesday!

44 goals, always together as both avoided injury all season thankfully so 220 points

09-08-16, 09:49 PM
No rule regarding selling of players. That means it is allowed right

10-08-16, 11:20 PM
Benjani and Inzaghi :cool:

06-09-17, 08:06 AM
Enjoyed this challenge and did pretty well.

Signed Goran Pandev and Landon Donovan as my two strikers and got 69 qualifying goals between them (only Pandev scored once when Donovan was off the pitch). Their performances lead to strong performance competing on all fronts.

The league was tight all the way through, with Barca and Real and ourselves always close together and it came right down to the wire. I went into the final game 2 points ahead, but playing Althleti away and was losing for some time, but a goal from Adriano got the one point I needed to stay ahead of Real on (goal difference/head to head?) with Barca one point behind.

The Champions League was also great, cruised through the group stages and then hammered Liverpool in the quarters. Sneaked passed Juve in the semis thanks to a 1-0 aggregate win (Zokara scored in the 78th minute of the second leg). Then the final against Arsenal went to penalties which when Cordero missed our 4th pen had Arsenal as favourites, but fortunately they had Senderos and Sagna taking their next two who missed!

The Copa Del Rey was close, got to the semi final, but came up against Barca. Won the home leg 1 - 0 but the second leg lost 2 - 0 to stop the perfect season.

Total points were:

Including a summary which shows the stats for each game where either Pandev or Donovan scored a qualifying goal. Let me know if you need to see anything else.

12 games in to my first official challenge. Will do pictures at the end if I get there.
A blank refusal to start again means I think it might be a struggle. I made the mistake of signing two FGN players, so have to play one of Fazio/Zokora/Romaric with them.
First ever time for me building a wibwob formation. Amr Zaki and Salvador Cabanas is my partnership, Zaki has 8 so far, Cabanas yet to score!! Need a penalty to get him going.

So many injuries but should be through into next phase champions league comfortably from group with AZ,Liverpool and Sporting.

more to follow

02-04-18, 12:24 PM
So...this was not a success. I took one attempt, and failed miserably. Turns out I might not be very good at this game after not playing it for 15 years.

First job was to sign 2 strikers.


I picked my 442 and didn't want to use any wibwob...


Next job was for my barbers to injure each other...


Liverpool binned me out the Champs League at the Qfinal stage.


Zaki picked up a fair amount of injuries, which didn't help.
It effectively cost me any chance at the league as he was my main striker.


In the end, Zaki managed 18 goals, despite all his injuries, he had a good season.


Cabanas was not so successful. It took him until November to get his first goal, then he missed a penalty at 0-0 against Liverpool in the Champions League second leg to put me in a strong position. All in all, he ended up with 11 goals, but 2 were scored during one of Zaki's injury spells, so 9 count towards it.


Enjoyable, but not what I wanted in the end. On to the next one...

Total = 5*27 = 135 points!

01-02-19, 01:37 PM
Very fun challenge. Took sometime to create, this is my first 442 that works

https://i.ibb.co/FmNyhTb/tactic.jpg (https://ibb.co/4K9XFrZ)

My 2 signings are amazingly good. They are always together on or off the pitch (to keep it simple) so every goals counted. 5 x (31+44) = 375

So I tried this one signing Santa Cruz and Nolito, not sure Nolito was the best choice but we won the League and Cup double, Barca beat us on away goals in the CL QF though...

I tried only having my front 2 on the pitch at the same time, though twice Santa Cruz scored after Nolito had gone off..

Spanish Title - 75 Points
Spanish Cup - 25 Points
Santa Cruz Goals (44-2) - 210 Points
Nolito Goals (25) - 125 Points
