Ipswich Town Football Club (also known as Ipswich, The Blues, Town, or The Tractor Boys) are an English professional football team based in Ipswich, Suffolk. As of 2010, they play in the Football League Championship, having last appeared in the Premier League in 2001–02.

Premier League season 01-02

Ipswich Town who the previous season had qualified for the UEFA Cup and earned manager George Burley the Manager of the Year award, made a terrible start to the season, winning just one of their first 18 Premiership games. They then went on a strong run of form, winning seven out of eight games, which looked to have secured their Premiership survival. But they then suffered another setback which George Burley's men were unable to reverse. Their relegation was confirmed on the final day of the season by a 5–0 thrashing at Liverpool.

Your challenge is to do what George Burley failed to do and save Ipswich Town from slipping down to Division 1 where they still remain to this day.

Obviously being a challenge there are a number of restrictions in place:

Challenge must be played on ODB v3.9.60
Use non wib/wob formations that have either 4 or 5 defenders.
You are not allowed to make any transfers.

Points:

Relagtion - -50 points per position(18th = -50, 19th = -100, 20th = -150)
Surviving relegation - 150 points
Each place above relegation zone - 10 points(If you finish 17th you get 160 points)
Winning League Cup - 50 points
Winning FA Cup - 50 points
Winning UEFA Cup - 175 points
Uefa Cup Semi Finals - 100 Points
Uefa Cup Quarter Finals - 75
Manager of month award - 10 points per month
Manager of the year award - 50 points

Good effort topaz :ok:.

Played this one 3 or 4 times myself, really enjoyed it, think I almost won the EPL before fading late in 1 attempt. Might give it another crack in the future sometime.

First challenge I've attempted, was good fun, if a little frustrating at times!

Total 160 points. Reached league cup semis and last 16 in uefa. Finidi George was hopeless and resorted to Nabil Abidallah for much of the season.

After a gap of over 3 years I've installed cm01/02 once again to try some of the challenges. I won't get much chance to play but hopefully I'll better than I did on the Hoffenheim challenge years ago. Starting with this one.....

Thanks!
Only about a third of the way through the season but it's been eventful. Won my first four league games to go top and win manager of the month, but my form has dropped off as injuries mount up and we play the big teams and lie in 7th now. Still in the UEFA after a couple of easy ties but Arsenal await in the League Cup.

Not quite sure what on earth is going on as I normally come near the bottom of the table in the challenges, but I'm on the verge of something big....... (UEFA Cup final involved)

TWS

Season over and a last 2 match collapse lost me 85, possibly 95 points. Lost the UEFA Cup final to Deportivo 1-0, followed by a 2-1 home defeat to Man Utd that won them the League and cost me 5th place and probably manager of the month, Sir Alex winning it instead.
So 6th place and a UEFA Cup final was how I finished up, with 5th and 3rd round exits in the FA and League Cups giving me 370 plus one manager of the month award. This gives me 380 points and a good return to cm01/02 after years away. Screen shots will be posted in the results thread soon.

Ok, so I've not played CM0102 for a year or two, so what better way to come back to it than a good challenge?

Quite pleased with the season as a whole, but started running out of players in March time and found the defenders to be pretty rubbish:

Finished 12th (150 + 60 pts)

After very strong start(was in champ league places up to 10 round), there was drop in form with all the cups. But after loosing on pen in league cup, and from Liverpool after replay in FA, things got stable. And quarterfinal UEFA defeat against Inter returned the form from the start to finish may with 3 wins, only last was really hard away game to Blackburn, and win 5th place on goal diff from 4 team competition!!!, and one and only manager of the month award.
So, for 5th place - 280 points, UEFA quarter - 75, 1 manager of the month - 10. All in all, not so bad 365 points :)

I'm going to return for another go at the first ever challenge I did: saving my beloved Tractor Boys!

Inspired by the mad bloke who loves the tiny country (and know his flags) I've tried to make a non-wib-wob tactic which works similar to my favoured Iodine, so we'll see how it goes!

Unfortunately I was knocked out of both the League Cup and Eufa Cup on penalties, and lost in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. No Manager awards either :(

Points:

Didnt win any trophies, but did win one MoTM, so 6th in the table gives me 270 points, + 10 for the one manager of the month = 280

Redknapp69
03-08-15, 08:32 PM
commentary or game? It sppeds up with JL Patch or Tapani doesn't it?

BlackyM
04-08-15, 12:00 AM
Commentary, its paintfull slow, its 3.9.60, so Tapani doesn't work?

Didn't try JL patch yet

Redknapp69
04-08-15, 05:22 AM
You have just chosen 'fast' or very fast' commentary from the in game match screen as well?
That will generally speed it up?

I thought I had an ODB game which has Tapani patch added? :confused:

BlackyM
04-08-15, 01:54 PM
Can I play this challenge with 3.9.68, but with 3.9.60 Database?

Redknapp69
05-08-15, 12:07 AM
think so - 3.9.68 just fixed bugs and leagues didn't it?

BobMem
05-08-15, 07:15 AM
I'm sure you can. Start with a fresh 0.60 install and copy everything out of the data file and stick it somewhere temporary. Then install the 0.68 patch and copy back the 0.60 data.
Otherwise I think there's an ODB data download somewhere.

Enjoyed it, Ipswich a good middle of the road team to kick off with - £10 million bids for Stewart, £8 million for Jermain Wright and Reuser could build a proper warchest to go out and sign the ODB legends! Was a bit unlucky with the manager of the month awards, my winning runs kept coming mid month to mid month but well happy to win the UEFA Cup 1st time, couldn't beleive it!

Ha ha, yes mostly becuase I wouldn't let them leave or care that they wanted a new contract!

So why is Ipswich in 1.division when I load the downloaded save game, and when I create a game, with the ODB?

Could be a mistake. They're meant to be in the Premier League.

You're using .68 data, you need the original .60 data.

I downloaded the .60 data update. So what it's the problem? Both in the savegame in the first thread, and when i created my own game Ipswich was in 1.division!?

BobMem
31-03-16, 10:40 PM
Sorry, I've not checked these things. All I know it's that Ipswich are in the Prem on .60 and in Division 1 in .68. The save may be wrong. If you've updated your install with the .68 patch you need to DL the .60 data and overwrite it into the data folder.

Relegated in 2002 and we've been there ever since :(

Top effort mate - what's the next challenge?

Looking at Challenge 17A - A Football Philosophy Part 1 ajax or Challenge 3 i think. Might start on challenge 4 again at some point but its a long old slog...

Good challenge! 13th at the end, losing 4 places in the final of the champ...
And with the 4-1-3-2 default tactic! Cool (after the 4-4-2 defensive restriction of the challenge 17-part 2 (Milan AC).

200pts for me!

Just about to give this one a go. does signing staff (physios) or signing new player contracts count against me?

kikivampy
09-05-17, 07:23 PM
Screenshoots of transfer in and out, so for me you can sign new staff members (if they retired as players).
What do you mean with signing new players contract? You CAN'T sign anyone as a player!

Hi mate. I meant giving new contracts to existing players so they stay happy and productive 😊

Really surprising season, I got really lucky with goalkeepers regularly being sent off against me. Way more successful than I was expecting. Bramble Stewart and Wright all got England call ups as well.

7 games to go and safety is assured. will post screenies etc once I get to the end of the season. points wise I'm sitting on 225 currently as I'm safe and I made the Uefa Cup QF's. League Cup I lost in the semis but was knocked out of FA Cup in 3rd Round by bloody Wycombe!

Finally done! Finished 11th but could have dropped to 14th as there was a bunch of teams within a point or 2 of each other up to the final game. Pics below but points are as follows:

Surviving - 150pts
11th - 70pts
Uefa QF - 75pts

No MOM or MOY awards so total points = 295 :peace:

Great challenge after doing a few fairly long ones lately...

I hate the restrictions of no WIBWOB but good to do them from time to time... My side were pretty unbeatable, only losing 6 times in the league! Unfortunately that didn't extend to cup runs going out straight away in the UEFA cup, 4th round in the League Cup and 4th Round in the FA Cup (embarrassingly in a replay against Rushden!)

Did pick up one MotM award though so by my reckoning, with a 4th place finish that has me on 290 points. Might have to try this again one day to go for some cup glory!

Oh I forgot my favourite part of this challenge, I got to manage my teenage hero, being a Hartlepool fan I was gutted when Tommy Miller left us... Didn't use him too much as CM think there were better players in his position (they are wrong!)

Just tried this challenge and finished 5th missing out on 4th on GD.

Went out of the UEFA cup and league cup quite early on with tough draws. Lost a winnable quarter final in the FA cup though.

I had an annoying amount of injuries and suspensions. Pretty much whoever was available got a game.

Another challenge where I expect I could have done a lot better - flying high in 4th and through in Europe beyond Christmas, after being eliminated by an Eto'o-powered Malaga my team then lost 7 of the last 9 games, thankfully beating Chelsea on the final day to recover somewhat up to 8th position.

Points
150 - survived relegation
100 - 10 places above relegation zone
0 - cups
0 - awards

Premier League: 5th place, 280 points. A 3-2 win at Old Trafford in the last game helped us stay ahead of Chelsea!

FA Cup: 4th Round, disappointing loss at Barnsley.

League Cup: Semi final - Didi Hamann broke Ipswich hearts in the 89th minute.

UEFA Cup: Finalists, 100 points: Great run, 4th Round win over Leeds was a highlight, thank goodness they rested Viduka at Elland Road. The quarter final 1-0 agg win over PSV was great too. Gutted about the final, we dominated 11 shots to 6, but the quality of Abbiati, Inzaghi and Shevchenko made the difference.
