New forum, new update, new challenge :ok:

Lev Yashin Reborn

http://goalkeepinggreats.webs.com/Yashin.JPG http://russiapedia.rt.com/files/prominent-russians/sport/lev-yashin/lev-yashin_4-t.jpg

Lev Yashin (22 October 1929 – 20 March 1990), was arguably the greatest GK of all time. He was voted the best goalkeeper of all time by the International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS). Yashin is the only goalkeeper ever to win the European Footballer of the Year Award (1963) and is also believed to have stopped around 150 penalty kicks during his career. He spent his entire professional football career with Dynamo Moscow (recording 270 career clean sheets) and was capped 78 times by the USSR.

Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take control of Dynamo Moscow and buy the reincarnation of Lev Yashin to help lead you to glory.


The rules are as follows:

1. Use the March 2012 ODB update
2. Load only Russia and take control of Dynamo Moscow (you may want to check the fixture list before you start to make sure you haven’t already been eliminated from the Russian Cup as it starts before the Russian season)
3. You are only allowed 1 transfer in and that is a new GK (he must be Russian and have no second nationality)
4. No loans allowed
5. You may sell anyone you wish but no player exchanges as you can only bring in 1 GK. The new GK must play a minimum of 20 games
6. Non-wib/wob 442 formation only. You can have arrows and set the player instructions however you want.
7. You have 1 season to win as much as you can

Nice one mate, love the one season blasts :ok:

06-03-12, 12:02 PM
Could be interesting, and a massive failure for me :sad:but will give it a blast as it's only one season!

06-03-12, 12:04 PM
Might even get this one done at work :D

06-03-12, 01:04 PM
Looks like a cracker!
Like Baz, I'm sure it will be one I fail miserably at!

06-03-12, 05:01 PM
Given this is my first time posting an official challenge result, how do you want me to go about proving the clean sheets for my Yashin, when he hasn't played every game?

Craig Forrest
06-03-12, 05:19 PM
It's just clean sheets total as I couldn't figure out a way to show how many an individual GK got

06-03-12, 05:29 PM
Oh guwon then:

Lets start with the man himself:

06-03-12, 06:06 PM
It's 10 pts for all clean sheets mate not just the ones your keeper played in. What's the deal with the other 3 fixtures at the bottom?

06-03-12, 06:48 PM
Will need to recalculate. I was in the Champs League, finished 3rd, went into UEFA Cup but the league season ended so stopped after the last league game.

06-03-12, 07:01 PM
So we end once the league season is over CF, not when the last game is played in that calendar year?

06-03-12, 07:55 PM
My man:


Craig Forrest
06-03-12, 08:00 PM
So we end once the league season is over CF, not when the last game is played in that calendar year?

You got it... once the League and Cup is done for the season..... they aren't supposed to be in Europe so it makes no sense to have it continue past the last league day IMO...

07-03-12, 12:11 AM
Just starting this.

Baz set a solid benchmark :yes:

07-03-12, 12:15 AM
Best of luck merk and Derm.

07-03-12, 03:57 PM
Season complete.
Way off in terms of score!

Russian League 2nd place: 400
Every clean sheet: 10 points x 11 = 110
Every cap for your Yashin: 0 points
Every Man of the Match for your Yashin: 0 points
Every game played by your Yashin: 2 points x 32 games = 64 points
Every goal conceded by your Yashin: -1 point x 44 conceded = -44 points

= 530 points

Screenshots to come later but as I said, barely troubling the scorers!

07-03-12, 04:03 PM
Looks a good challenge - ill give this a go as a Challenege Debut - i have spent some time on the Russia file on the old database trying to find challenges - its certainly more exciting a league to play now decent players are there - lots of goals.

07-03-12, 04:04 PM
Best of luck tommy.

07-03-12, 04:25 PM
Have ten games to go myself, will finished it off this evening

Craig Forrest
07-03-12, 06:10 PM
I don't think Baz's score will be beaten unless Dinamo makes it into the UEFA Cup again.... I bet it's due to the fact that the Russian Cup finishes and then starts again before the Russian season begins... so if they win the Russian Cup the previous season they get into UEFA.....

07-03-12, 06:26 PM
I'm in the CL Craig, more points? :D

07-03-12, 06:46 PM
As you can see the UEFA cup were my first games in charge, that's even before the Russian Cup quarter finals etc. We can recount and avoid European games, I have zero problem with that, my guy only played one game in Europe, and he didn't keep a clean sheet then either.

Craig Forrest
07-03-12, 08:10 PM
Makes no sense.... they didn't win the Russian Cup last in the editor, nor are they in the euro.cfg file for Russia...... although some checking in the editor reveals that there is no 2001 entry in the history of the russian premier league... could the cpu assign dynamo moscow as the winner for that year in some cases?

it's weired either way.... I had them in the UEFA Cup in one test of out about 10 and figured it was a fluke result for some reason....

Craig Forrest
07-03-12, 08:12 PM
anyone have a problem if we alter the scoring to say points only count for league and russian cup games? that will eliminate people getting higher scores if their team ends up in Europe for some reason...

07-03-12, 08:13 PM
I've no objection and it makes sense.

07-03-12, 08:30 PM
Yeah, leave it to Russian League and Cup only

2001 can't be set for Russia in the config, it will just be overwritten idb - due to the fact at game load, it will use the 2000 winners as entrants for the Euro comps and they can't be added. Kinda same goes for all the winter leagues

07-03-12, 08:35 PM
No problems from me, if someone would like to recaulculate my numbers as i'm going to be very busy the next 3/4 days and may not get the time to do so. Also trust me to get UEFA cup billing :rant:

07-03-12, 09:18 PM
Don't forget to use the results thread people!

Taken the Russian Cup - not much chance of a clean sheet yet though, goals goals goals

08-03-12, 11:18 PM
I'm almost completing this challenge.
In what games should i calculate my points? Only league games and Russian cup games?
Dinamo was drawed to play in the Champions League in my save. Should i add the european matches points?

08-03-12, 11:23 PM
Just league and Russian Cup games mate.

In my Season - Torres signed for Anzhi for 5m and Spartak Moscow got relegated!

09-03-12, 12:22 PM

09-03-12, 12:36 PM
Good to see plenty of activity in here, and a great score Luis.

Don't forget to put your screenies in the result thread as well guys otherwise you won't go on the leaderboards!

09-03-12, 12:38 PM
I'm gonna have another go at some point so no need to put my score on the leaderboard.

Already done! :ok:

Now I'm gonna try the same tct at the other non wib/wob challenges. Let's see how it goes.

19-03-12, 09:55 AM
Thinking of giving this challenege a whirl.

Just a quick question. Do we have to buy a GK or can we use one of our own players if we think he is good enough??

19-03-12, 09:58 AM
You have to buy a new Russian GK mate.

19-03-12, 03:10 PM
I have to say I am loving this challenge. Nearly at the end of the season and cant wait to post my results

19-03-12, 04:28 PM
Have finished the challenge.
Had great fun creating my own tactic, which is the first time i have ever done that. It is also the first time i have done a challenge as well.

19-03-12, 04:41 PM
Just a couple of things mate, only league and cup games count so your keeper has only conceded 41 (36 + 5), but I only count 9 clean sheets (European games don't count). Also screenshots need to be submitted in the results thread as well mate.

Congratulations on completing your first challenge as well mate!

20-03-12, 02:00 PM
Do I dare post and say I'm going to attempt this one? :D

Some cracking scores (especially Luis'!) so far and a one season blitz is perfect. Got all the right elements, much like the Ipswich challenge.

20-03-12, 02:01 PM
Too late :D

20-03-12, 11:49 PM

Hard luck on the league mate, I make it only 14 clean sheets though, the one in the UEFA Cup doesn't count.

21-03-12, 08:23 PM
yep :ok: sorry bout that.


21-03-12, 08:28 PM
No problem mate, I've changed it in here and the results thread.

Shouldn't take too long to go through though as I'll be playing whilst in the air on holiday next week! :)

07-04-12, 04:37 PM
Have won the league but don't think my Yashin has done very well. Will hopefully complete in next couple of days

A detail: when you start a new game with 2.21 tapani patch, you can't sign any player before july. You can do it with the 2.20 tapani patch.

Very good season for a very good challenge!!!
My 4 4 2 ultra defensive help me a lotl!!!

My Lev Yashin won the best russian goalkeeper in 2016 with Rostov, he is playing for Rubin Kazan now. His name is...
Soslan Dzhanaev (or Dzhanayev).

Here are the screenshots of his transfer from Spartak Moscou (and no loan):

Cup winner! +200pts

Rubin won the champ at the 71' of the last game...
But we finished second! +400pts

Take a look at my Yashin!
35 games * 2 = +70pts
23 goals conceded = -23pts

Changing my strict 4-2-3-1 default tactic for a 4 4 2 defensive homemade one... :cry:

All the games of this season:
21 clean sheets (I'm a Diego Simeone and Antonio Conte Fan!!! :peep: ) = +210pts

Total: 200+400+70+210-23= +857pts

Thanks CF for this fresh challenge!!!
