Arsenal Football Club.
The Gunners.
Fly Emirates.




To many they are one of the best run clubs in modern football and play the game the way it should be played. Their free flowing youthful brand of football is bettered perhaps only by Barcelona (and their North London rivals) and it has seen them become many a neutrals favourite.



Of course this is not everyone's opinion.


Some might say they have never seen a more 'wretched hive of scum and villainy'.

Whilst others might think they are just a bunch of gays.

However one thing we might all be able to agree on is that despite the pretty football they perhaps at times appear nothing more than a bunch of shot shy surrender monkeys that are masquerading as an expensively assembled 'spot the Englishman' competition.

Well my friends fear not because the winds of change are coming.


You see for too long Mr Wenger has shaped the destiny at the Not Highbury stadium, but it seems his reluctance to spend money has caught up with him. The board has decided on a change of direction and that change of direction is you. Your instructions are clear:


Football is Coming Home!



You are to reshape your first XI around a spine of young English talent. You must buy 4 young bloods with which you will lay the foundations of a new dynasty. In keeping with your predecessors work they must be young and relatively unknown. These players will be thrown straight into the first team and become the axis of your side. The time has come to cast off the shackles and Cry God for Harry, England and St George!



------------------------------


This is a one season challenge using ANY database/update. You will take charge of Arsenal and purchase 4 players. One goalkeeper, one central defender, one midfielder and one striker.

These players must be:
21 or under at the start of the game.
Be uncapped at full level
Be of English nationality (dual nationality is absolutely fine)

Over the course of the season you will accumulate points in the following manner.

Goalkeeper
(Games played / Goals conceded) x 10 = points

Central Defender
Average tackles x 10 = points

Midfielder
1 point for every assist

Striker
1 point for every goal

Additional points will be awarded for:-
Man of the Match = 3 points
Player/Young Player of the month = 10 points
Player/Young Player of the year = 25 points

No points will be awarded for winning trophies, this challenge is all about the new boys. Managers that can find the right balance in their tactic will be rewarded, however the board have stipulated that you must play a FLAT BACK 4.

Points will count for every competitive match and a player must play at least 20 games during the season to have his score eligible.

You will be required to provide a screenie of:
each players end of season screen
player of the month results
player of the year results
formation

***In addition to the screenies can you post which data update you used for the challenge***
Good luck and 'the best of English' to you all.

How much did you pay for Springthorpe? I couldn't get him..

ozRooster
11-07-12, 02:12 PM
4.5m, second offer I made for him, no hassles.

Steele was my 1st choice, got upto 13m :eek: and still couldn't get him.

Springthorpe : 10 games, 9 goals allowed, 7.30 avg :ok:.

The rest are gash :D.

Craig Forrest
12-07-12, 03:19 AM
Glad I chose the March 2009 DB to play this one....

Managed to sign uncapped 21 year old GK Joe Hart, David Edgar, some dude named Chris Cohen, and a 19 year old striker from Newcastle named Andy Carroll..... and I only had to pay £3.4M for him.... less than a tenth of his actual transfer fee :D

Of course I'll probably do shit so don't expect a good score from me.... :ok:

12-07-12, 03:48 AM
Am sure you will beat my measly 88 pts, although I scraped into top 22 :peace:

ozRooster
12-07-12, 06:27 AM
So far, Springthorpe is quality(1 ypotm award), Dunk is rubbish, LuaLua is great but only has ONE feckin assist (7 goals though), Sears starting to shine 10 goals/25 games. 5 motm awards between them, not bad from 28 games.

Oh, and I have Sears as my PK taker (obviously), 1 peno awarded to us all season so far, ONE!!!!!!!

BlazeRavenwolf
12-07-12, 09:40 AM
OK mid-point (well Feb)

GK: Sean Cuff
DC: Mark Beevers
MID: Jonjo Shelvey
ATT: Victor Moses

Sean Cuff is doing well, 1 YpotM and a MOM 36 games, 29 conceded

Mark Beevers is doing OK, Ave. Tackles 2.8, Played 19 games so far

Jonjo Shelvey is doing well, 8 assists (scored 13 pity that does not count), 43 games so far

Victor Moses is doing well seen as he has been out for 6 months (surgery), 8 games, 4 goals & 2 MOM (He should be back in 2 weeks :lol:)

ozRooster
12-07-12, 02:24 PM
Rightio, here we go (I'll post in results thread too AMC :ok:).

Total : 122.

Disappointed not to get another 10 assists from LuaLua, he played pretty well all season. We ended up finishing a solid 4th, not bad considering who we had to leave out.

Good fun, cheers lads :ok:.

I could have done better if Moses had not got injured for 6 bloody months (On the form he started with before his injury he could have scored 40-50 goals)

ozRooster
15-07-12, 12:25 PM
Unlucky dude. I think with mine, Dunk missed a week, LuaLua missed a fortnight and the GK had 1 2 match ban.

Might try it again with another tactic, maybe borrow 1 off somebody who knows what they're doing :D.

Just started this challenge, but my score's gonna be hooooorrible...

Playing on ODB .68

So hard to buy the youngster, only managed to purchase 4 players by 4th October (!)

Players:

GK - Paul Robinson (Leeds) - only player that was availaible for all 13 matches, conceded 11 goals in 12 matches (I benched him away to Barcelona; Vieira got red in that match and the result was 0-4), also 1 MOTM
DC - Martin Taylor (Blackburn) - averaging 2.3 tackle in 6 games
DMRC - Sean Davis (Fulham) - 1 assist and 1 MOTM in 1 match (also scored a goal)
SC - Wayne Rooney (Everton) - 1 goal in 8 matches... yeah, he's only striker obviously, but Vieira's stealing all the goals (he scored 7 in 12 despite playing as MC)

So it's not going too well so far, though I hope Davis gonna make some scores.

04-12-12, 12:00 AM
Just finished this challenge with original .68 DB

Signed : P Smith Brentford 2.4 M

61/63 * 10 = 9.7 + 1 mom = 12.7

Signed Jolean Lescott Wolves 5M

2.8 * 10 = 28 + 1 mom = 31

Signed Richie Wellens Blackpool 2.5M

18 + 4 mom = 30 (can I include 11 goals as well?)

Signed Dean Ashton Crewe 8M

19 + 2 mom = 25

Two ypom = 20 (oops he got the May one as well) = 30

Total 118.7

tactic 451 with a few amendments

At the end of the year Lescott and Ashton were in the England U21s and Smith / Wellens on the flight to Tokio

(Arsenal finished 6th but my job seems secure)

133

Really tried for damage limitation on conceding goals. No awards for any of the players throughout the season, this I guess is the key to a good score. I think I would like to try a different midfielder in 4-1-2-1-2.

19-10-13, 10:41 PM
It looks like this is the only challenge that you can do with the latest database, so I've given it a go. Any chance any of the existing challenges could be done with the latest database or a new challenge for the newer databases?

GK - George Long (Sheff Utd)
DC - Ezekiel Fryers (Spurs)
MC - Ravel Morrison (West Ham)
FC - Jordan Ibe (Liverpool)

Craig Forrest
19-10-13, 10:55 PM
Xob...... there is no problem switching dbs..... all you have to do is copy the data files into the data folder..... it doesn't affect any of your save games and you can still play them..... I have about seven saves, all on different updates..... about 4 challenges currently on the go at the same time.... and no problems :ok:

Craig Forrest
19-10-13, 10:57 PM
and as for your question, the older challenges are on those databases for a reason..... and we don't keep score unless everyone who plays them is using the same starting point..... as for new challenges, there may be one or two coming soon..... but play the old ones :ok:

xobxela
20-10-13, 01:07 AM
Many thanks for the help/advice. I was always scared that copying new files over might mean old save games became unplayable. With this knowledge in mind, I'll aim to have a go at the challenges I can! :ok:

I've got through the first half of the season while watching Match of the Day so here are how things stand at 1st January
First of all, we're having a storming time of it so far. Here's the January 1st league table:

http://oi40.tinypic.com/2nsqs80.jpg

And here are my signings, all have done well, shame that both Fryers and Morrison have been picking up the odd 3 weeks injury. Ibe has been a beast! Here's how he almost single-handedly helped the team overturn a 3-0 half-time deficit away to Borussia Dortmund for example:

http://oi41.tinypic.com/2vuwk6d.jpg

Anyway here they all are with the post Christmas games still to go:

GK - George Long (Sheffield United - 1m)
http://oi42.tinypic.com/jtujab.jpg

DC - Ezekiel Fryers (Tottenham Hotspur - 5m)
http://oi42.tinypic.com/28rhc02.jpg

MC - Ravel Morrison (West Ham - 12.25m)
http://oi42.tinypic.com/2nqy8n8.jpg

FC - Jordan Ibe (Liverpool - 5.25m)
http://oi42.tinypic.com/z73ub.jpg

xobxela
20-10-13, 03:21 AM
Jordan Ibe and Ravel Morrison were called up to the full England squad and Ibe started alongside Rooney in a friendly against Spain (but got a 5 rating and was hauled off again).

I hope this isn't considered as spamming but as I got so into this challenge, I abadoned my plans for tonight and continued.

Two players were 2nd and 3rd in the Young Players of the Year award:

http://oi44.tinypic.com/2iuqli0.jpg

And Jordan Ibe even made the Premier League team of the season!

http://oi44.tinypic.com/2aexgcy.jpg

No points for either though I take it...

xobxela
20-10-13, 04:34 AM
OK Season's over. We won the domestic treble but got knocked out of the Champions League in the quarter finals to Bayern Munich.

Points:

Goalkeeper (George Long)
(Games played / Goals conceded) x 10 = points
(65 / 56) x 10 = 11.61, round up to 12???

Central Defender (Ezequiel Fryer)
Average tackles x 10 = points
2.5 x 10 = 25

Midfielder (Ravel Morrison)
1 point for every assist: 13
MOTM: 3 (9)

Striker (Jordan Ibe)
1 point for every goal: 42
MOTM: 9 (27)
YPOTM: 4 (40)

So: 12(?) + 25 + 13 + 9 + 42 + 27 + 40 = 168.

I think. Screenshots in next post.

England 2:0 Nigeria (Ibe - 8 MOTM and 1 goal)

England lost 1:0 to Germany in the 2nd round. Ibe got a 6 again. Ravel Morrison never made it off the bench.

It's not Shearer or Cole
It's Zamora
La la la la laaaaa!

I'm a bit bored tonight so thought i'd have a crack at one of the challenges - this one season job sounds good :) Using latest db, so far signed Alex Cairns, Harry McGuire and Jordan Ibe. Two games played and still haven't landed my #1 midfield target....... Blackpool seem to think Tom Ince is worth billions :lol:

08-12-13, 09:36 PM
Got Ince, £11.5m :nuts:

Goofy

Done!

Playing latest DB with Tapani 2.16 patch.

Points:

GK - 66/28 = 38 (x 10) = 380
Def - 3.4 (x 10) = 34
Mid - 7 assists
Att - 45 goals
MOTM - 12 (x 3) = 36
YPOM - 6 (x 10) = 60

Grand total = 562

I've finished this challenge, won't be a great score but will get screenies together when I get some champ time in (could be restricted over Christmas :()

Roughly from memory:
Keeper 60 odd games, 35ish conceded = 17 points
Defender 4.7 tackles = 47 points
Midfielder 12 assists = 12 points
Striker 36 goals = 36 points

Zero awards = 0 points (Although Zamora came third for the Young Player of the Season, any points for that?)
Maybe 10 MoM = 30 points

My guess is 142 points.

Craig Forrest

Using the March 2014 update, I gave this a run. Too bad my freescoring striker broke his leg with three months to go. Just when he was England's starting nr 9....poor guy.
Of the four players bought, 2 broke into the full England squad. The other two were star players for the u-21's, but got a call up at the end of the season.
Young Player of the season was won by Lazar Markovic, whom I had already put into the Liverpool setup....stupidstupid.
We won the FA cup, League cup, made the semi's of the CL and got second place in the Prem, behind an unbeaten Man City side.

It is right to loan a player instead of buying him? I've started this challenge with April 2015 DB and it's a nightmare to find a good defender... or a defender who wants to join :lol:

Cousins was like my 7th choice - Will Hughes was first, then Ward-Prowse... then like 5 random players I don't remember, but I found hard to sign a lot of players... and as the time was running out, I had to sign someone :lol:

Prioritized not conceding rather than tackling, so I played with 2 DMC - that might have been a wrong aproach.

1 point for every goal = 41 points

Man of the Match = 9 x 3 = 27 points
Player of the month = 1 x 10 = 10 points


Total = 121.7 points


Reckon I'd have done better in midfield with a winger.

Won the league with 96 points, the FA cup and UEFA cup
Mowatt was 3rd for young player of the year
Still unsure how Berahino could be the player of the month once but not young player???!?!???

You could technically boost your keeper points by subbing him out as soon as the match started, though I assure you I didn't ever do this.


Oh and someone might wanna look at Goofys post on page 3, reckon he's lightly misjudged his keepers score there.

Hi, I'm a slight forum lurker but going to do some challenges.

I have 2 questions: 1) Can the midfielder be not central? eg. is AM(R/L) allowed? and 2) The 25 points for Young Player of the Year, is that only for if they come 1st in it?

Oh man, again so cloooooooooooose...damn freaking...I forgot to remove goalkeeper against Barcelona in QF of CL so I coneaced goal there, that would be 12.25 points more, and that damn walcott stole 2 awards from Sinclair...

With a little bit of luck, would be around Inf0's score :D

So did you just sub in Ospina after 2 minutes every game? Doesn't really seem in the spirit of the challenge to me.

25-09-15, 02:38 PM
It's technically within the rules.... but I wouldn't have done it.... seems kind of sleazy to do it just to get extra points on a fun challenge for a 14 year old game....

... but whatever

I wouldn't allow it myself, I know it's not in the rules as such but it's pretty much a given. There's loads of things that could be on the challenges but we/you can't possibly write them all down.

I may have another crack at this and concede 0 :D

if that's doesn't qualify for the points, fine. at least just pointing that out there is no solid rules here. i admit what i have done sincerely just didn't expect it will ruin your days.

now i moved on to other challenge and i will not bend the rules of the challenges. hope that is okay with you guys. Just wanna have fun with the game and the challenge.

As I said before though mate we can't think of everything to put down. We don't tell people not to handyman the players either but people don't do it because they know it's not right.

Other people in the thread said about subbing the keeper as well, although no one replied saying you can't I'd take that to mean obviously you don't do it.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the challenges anyway :ok:

What a pity, Ryan Shawcross did job too badly. Tackle 1.8 :puke: Not worth for buying with 7,25 M.

I think Cohen would do much better and give more assisst if he didn't get injures twice.

Joe Hart got over 10 conceeds in May when the matches were too much, two days a match, most of players didn't have full strength to work well.

Sturridge satisfied me when he had quite slow start and then, like a beast as I wanted!!!

My first attempt at a challenge since it used any DB and I'd just downloaded the Oct 2016 so wanted to play it, also my first ever season with Arsenal, didn't realise I could get attached to a club!

Anyway, I think I have SS of everything I need here: http://smg.photobucket.com/user/RTMFW/library/Challenge%2016

I actually failed miserably first time and got to the first transfer window having only purchased a defender, so had to start again, and therefore had better knowledge of who might join! (Ward-Prowse bid worth £49million was rejected - I'm sure the board wouldn't have allowed it bus still wanted to see if there was a price they'd accept!) Surprised at how well the youngsters did, carried Arsenal to the title and League Cup... were knocked out of the Champions League in the Quarters by the mighty Leicester City and lost the FA Cup final to United.

Anyway Purchased:

GK Christian Walton from Luton:
Games Played: 44
Goals Conceded: 36
MoM: 0
P/YPotM: 0
YPotY: 3rd
Points (44*10/36) = 12.2

DC: Dominic Iofra from Wolves
Average Tackles: 2.9
MoM: 0
P/YPotM: 0
YPotY: 2nd
Points: (2.9 * 10) = 29

MC: Will Hughes from Derby
Assists: 15
MoM: 4
P/YPotM: 0
YPotY: 1st!
Points: (15 + (4*3) + 25) = 52

SC: Zach Clough from Bolton (James Wilson would not even talk to me, bloody loyalty!), started the season on absolute fire, PotM 3 of the first 4 months, faded after but kept chipping in with goals:
Goals: 47
MoM: 16
P/YPotM: 3
PotY: 1st!
Point: (47 + (16*3) + (3*10) + 25) = 150

Total: 243.2

Congratulations on completing your first challenge mate, shame Clough slowed down a bit in the second half of the season as it would have made a more than decent score even better!

Don't forget to post a link to your screenies in the results thread otherwise your score won't be counted for the Challenge Tables or KOTM.

I'm trying it, with october 2016 Database!!!

A few questions:
Uncapped at full level means that we can't buy english U-21 level, I'm ok?
A striker is a player who plays as a striker (AM/FC for example) or a strict stricker (SC)?
Thanks!

What a realistic challenge! Wenger will go, and I'm french! But really this Arsenal from october 2016 sucks comparing it to 2010...

27-03-17, 06:50 PM
I have an answer for my second question above, many of us used for this challenge a FRC as SC, so no problem for a AM/FC if he plays only as a striker!!!

Boring Arsenal, Boring Challenge... :(
2 conclusions for this challenge:
1) I undertand better why Arsene Wenger is still the Manager of arsenal. Finishing 9th this challenge, the board is happy, out of the cups in 3rd and 4th round, 1/4 final Champions League!
2) I understand better the bad results of this year... Arsenal is no longer a world class club!!!

As you see, if I'd be the Board, I would sack myself!!!
My score is not so bad, but I'm not satisfied...

Took on the challenge with the original .68 DB. Arsenal are a beast of a team, but with my non wibwobbing and insistence on 2 strikers as a rule, I wasn't too successful!
https://s33.postimg.cc/r615chhi7/Les_rosbifs_-_transfers.png

So I signed these 4 guys, and went with this tactic. Didn't get King in time for the League cup run which was annoying, he was cup tied. Bowers was as well, not such a big issue though.
https://s33.postimg.cc/smcnubmwf/les_rosbifs_-_tactics.png

Getting Man United in the FA Cup third round away from home was a kick in the balls. King was good, Langley was surprisingly good, Bowers not so good, and Myhill was decent, but at 19, maybe should have gone for someone older in goals.

https://s33.postimg.cc/6zxndm1a7/les_rosbifs_-_boaz_myhill.png
https://s33.postimg.cc/5kw2oyksf/les_rosbifs_-_mark_bower.png
https://s33.postimg.cc/7pgfq3rkv/les_rosbifs_-_richard_langley.png
https://s33.postimg.cc/tbvg7730v/les_rosbifs_-_marlon_king.png

Points-

Myhill - 55 games / 42 goals = 1.3*10 = 13points
Bowers - Tackles/gm = 1.8/10 = 18points
Langley - 17 assists + 3*5mom = 32 points
Marlon King - 31 goals = 3*4mom = 43 points

total = 106 points

Can't believe King or Langley never won YPOTM. Absolutely ridiculous. King came third in European Striker of the year and European player of the year. He outscored Henry playing alongside him. Games rigged.

Started this on Luessenhoff's modified ODB... hope that's ok, but no problem if you don't end up accepting my score - not wib-wobbing so not expecting to trouble the top of the leaderboard, just doing it for my own entertainment really!

OP does state that any database can be used so you might be ok. I don't know the specifics of the mods on it so I'll have a word with the other mods and see what we all think,

We're all happy with that DB Riise so you'll score once completed.

Ace, thanks. Obviously couldn’t have a horribly modified DB where I made all my players amazing, but wanted to check whether it was ‘official’ DBs only :D

DB: Luessenhoff's modified ODB - 3.9.60

GK: Mark Goodlad, Port Vale, £825k - 13.478 points
http://i63.tinypic.com/ei75du.jpg


DC: Zatyiah Knight, Fulham, £4.9m - 30 points (inc. 1 MoM)
http://i65.tinypic.com/2cxb0gn.jpg


DMC: Sean Davis, Fulham, £8m 27 points (inc. 5 MoM)
http://i67.tinypic.com/2rcpphd.jpg


SC: Shola Ameobi, Newcastle, £2.5m 43 points (inc. 4 MoM)
http://i66.tinypic.com/33xihbo.jpg


Ameobi was YPotM twice... so 20 points
http://i66.tinypic.com/ms2ko9.jpg


And here's how they lined up! I haven't played with a back four for about 15 years, but given how much this formation got out of the lone striker, I might have to start using it in other saves!
http://i63.tinypic.com/25sstn8.jpg


Ameobi was third in YPotY :( and Goodlad made the TotY! But no points for them.

So I make that 133.478 points (round how you like, wasn't sure looking at the leaderboard)

Forgot how good Arsenal are on ODB... accidentally won the Prem & FA Cup :lol: lost the League Cup Final to Chelsea and Roma saw us off in the Champions League Quarters.

Decided to give this a go on the ODB. I wasn't sure if you were allowed to sell players to raise funds(?) so I decided not to. I priorities Defoe and Dunn, leaving me little money to use, so I settled for Lescott and Mark Goodlad in goal. Transfers are below:

I used my favoured non wib-wob tactic, as seen below:

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img923/2880/kL6lNp.png

In terms of the team's performance, it went very well. Won the league with a 3-2 win at White Hart Lane in game 37 which must have delighted the fans! In the English Cups we faced Man Utd in both finals - losing 3-0 in the League Cup but winning 4-0 in the FA Cup. In the Champions League we reached the final but lost on pens to Roma after a 0-0. Roma only made it to the knockout rounds thanks to a stoppage time goal for Barcelona in the last game of Phase Two Group Stage, so I always felt they had fate on their side! Anyway, on to the players.

Goodlad was actually super in goal all season so that worked out well! I was a bit late signing him so he was cup tied for the League Cup and missed a few games there.
55 games, 33 conceded and 1 MOM = 55/33x10 +3= 19.7 points.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img923/254/1sc7SW.png

Lescott was pretty poor, board and media were hating on him all season. He did improve towards the end at least. A 3 month injury impacted his games but probably didn't make much difference to his score. His best quality was arguably his aerial threat at corners.

Points for Lescott - 1.8 tackles x10, plus 1 MOM = 21 points.

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img924/3373/ViO7Ae.png

David Dunn was quality, 20 assists and 6 MOM, plus 1 YPOTM for a total of 48 points. Slightly sad his 18 goals counted for nothing!

https://imagizer.imageshack.com/img922/1315/RSgxRc.png

Defoe got 35 goals all season, with 9 MOM and 3 POTM. Points total for him is 92.

Ian Evatt took two YPOTM and YPOTY, despite an average rating of 7.00. Defoe was robbed there!

Total points for the challenge is 180.7!

Hi! I'm new here and i dont know where to ask this, so i leave a couple of questions here:

I am interested in doing all of this challenges but i will like to know if...

1) can we use the monthly contract trick? And the trick that consists in growing up the player price until you know how much money a team is going to pay for that certain player?

2) can we have installed more than one update at the same time or we have to change between them?

3) are we free to use any patch from this web (saturn, tapani...)?

Thank you very much for your work and effort and forgive my bad english :)

I'll try my best to answer these:

1) can we use the monthly contract trick? No And the trick that consists in growing up the player price until you know how much money a team is going to pay for that certain player? Not heard of this trick, if you feel like it's a cheat then probably not as we try and play fairly here

2) can we have installed more than one update at the same time or we have to change between them? Check through the forms but you can have different versions of the game saved in different folders

3) are we free to use any patch from this web (saturn, tapani...)? Unless it is specified in challenge instructions can use either

Thanks James for answering my questions.

The trick I was talking about is the one that consists in gradually increasing the price of the footballer until the interested club is no longer interested, knowing that that is the maximum price they are willing to pay.

In another order of things, I'd like to know if we are allowed to use downloaded tactics and if we can make transfers without having scouted them.

I am looking forward to try some of the challenges that I have found on this website.

Once again, thank you very much for your responses.

Gave this a go yesterday on the 3.9.68 database (with a 2002 start date, since that's accurate for that data).

Was a feeling a bit lazy so went with a plug-and-play tactic:
https://imgur.com/g941pXz.png

Here are my transfers:
https://imgur.com/c3WUJsV.png

In goal I was worried about how Rhys Evans would do, but he did better than expected after joining from Chelsea for £1m. He made the Premier League Team of the Season whilst conceding 46 in 65 games in all competitions.
https://imgur.com/PssZler.png
(65 played / 46 conceded) x 10 = 14 points

Lescott (Wolves, £3.2m) wasn't superb in the average rating stakes, but did make plenty of tackles which is what we're after so fair enough!
https://imgur.com/UAuaGrE.png
3.0 average tackles x 10 = 30 points

After a protracted saga around Joe Cole ended with West Ham even refusing £20m for him after I'd sold a few fringe players, I turned my attention to Steven Reid, picking him up from Millwall for £6m. He started off a with a run of goals out wide, and when Pires and Ljungberg returned from their early-season injuries I worked them into the wide areas and got Reid more games centrally to help him rack up more assists as this tactic was more about through passes than crosses.
https://imgur.com/oMuBhEZ.png
8 assists = 8 points
2 MotM x 3 = 6 points

Up front I got Dean Ashton from Crewe for £2.5m, and he was superb, hitting 26 goals in 50 games.
https://imgur.com/HxyMoo9.png
https://imgur.com/4EMHMdi.png
26 goals = 26 points
3 MotM x 3 = 9 points
4 YPotM x 10 = 40 points

We scooped the Premier League and the FA Cup - a memorable double, denied a domestic treble by Man Utd defeating us in the League Cup. Of course none of that matters for the challenge but just to give some context :-)

Total points: 133

This is the first challenge I try and to be honest the feeling hasn't been bad, although it has left a bad taste in my mouth after losing the UCL final against United in the 90th minute.

I have choosen the 3.9.68T.


I've chosen the Christmas tree tactic and after all I think it would have been better to choose a tactic with two strikers that would suit the squad better, but I was obsessed with leaving Ameobi alone up front in order to score the most goals.
https://i.ibb.co/sbKXgtd/tactics.jpg

Transfers:
https://i.ibb.co/VHhPFKm/transfers.jpg

Paul Smith had a great season, although in the last games he conceded a couple of goals in two games and his average ended up getting too bad.
https://i.ibb.co/XpkLpZw/paul-smith.jpg
(47 played / 21 conceded) x 10 = 22 points

Clark Carlisle was the signing that performed the worst, probably due to the fact that he hardly participated during the games due to the great superiority of the team over the rivals.
https://i.ibb.co/YBVc7ck/clark-carlisle.jpg
2.2 average tackles x 10 = 22 points

David Dunn was the main candidate in the center of the pitch, but the Rovers didn't make it easy and finally had to choose to sign Reid. He had a great season, although his qualities are not so much those of an assistant.
https://i.ibb.co/Vm07vmt/steven-reid.jpg
13 assists = 13 points
5 MotM x 3 = 15 points

The best signing of the season was Ameobi, who scored 42 goals, much of them in the early part of the season. An injury caused him to miss much of the end of the season. Can't believe that he didn't receive more awards considering that he was by far the top scorer in the league.
https://i.ibb.co/rbzMnXt/shola-ameobi.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/h91rKGz/PoM.jpg
https://i.ibb.co/12wf8nW/YPoM.jpg
42 goals = 42 points
6 MotM x 3 = 18 points
1 PotM x 10 = 10 points
1 YPotM x 10 = 10 points

The team had a very good season winning the Premier League, the League Cup and the Charity Shield comfortably, while we ran into United in both the FA Cup and the UCL final.

Total points: 152

I think it's not bad for my first challenge.
