Challenge 25 - A Greek Tragedy



http://i41.tinypic.com/142rhib.jpg




The Greek economy is in crisis! The Nation's debt stands at a staggering £270 billion, while unemployment figures account for 28% of the adult population. In order to battle these problems a number of cost cutting measures have been placed right across the board by the Greek government and there is no escape for Football!


Your task is to take over Olympiacos winners of 15 out of the last 17 Greek Super League titles and achieve success adhering to the following restrictions outlined below.




RULES

- you must use the recent Autumn 2013 Data Update

- At the start of the 2nd season the clubs wage bill must not be more than £83k, and must not exceed that during the season.
- At the start of the 3rd season the clubs wage bill must not be more than £66k, and must not exceed that during the season.
- At the start of the 4th season the clubs wage bill must not be more than £53k, and must not exceed that during the season.
- At the start of the 5th season the clubs wage bill must not be more than £48k, and must not exceed that during the season.
- At the start of the 6th season the clubs wage bill must not be more than £43k, and must not exceed that during the season.

- Only 20% (one fifth) of transfer money raised can be spent on players, including signing on fees. Signing on fees cannot be more than the transfer fee either.

- no loans or free transfers are allowed.

- you get no points for the first season, only the results in seasons 2-6 count.

- no tactic restrictions, wib-wob or no wib-wob it's up to you.

- by the time of the first competitive game of the season kicks-off you must have met the wage structure for that season.



POINTS

- this is all about winning, nothing for coming 2nd (or 3rd, or 4th...)

- once again, no points for the first season

Greek Super League - 200 pts
Greek Cup - 100 pts
Greek Super Cup - 50 pts
UEFA Cup - 500 pts
Champions League - 1,000 pts



SCREENSHOTS

- Club stats (at time of first competitive game of the season), Income figures, Players/Loans In and Out, Titles/Cups won (at the end of the season).




Thanks must also go to Craig Forrest and The Eejit for helping with this getting off the ground.

Any questions just ask otherwise best of luck!

This is a fantastic idea/challenge :ok:

The challenge king is right up for this! :hail: to the Challenge team for a great idea! :hail:

I assume you find the current wage figure from Finances & Info and then "Stats" menu? - so here..............

If so - look like already under wage budget for a couple of years - just need to be careful who I sign!

27-10-13, 12:50 AM
how do you ascertain how much you can spend (i.e - the 20% of what you raise in transfer funds) - is this by the Players out screen for that season?

Redknapp69
27-10-13, 07:18 PM
tough to decide which players to give new contracts to in order to keep wage bill down! :typing: :help: :pray: :hurt:

Redknapp69
27-10-13, 08:29 PM
With only 20% of transfer income being spent this is a proper wheeler dealer of a challenge - buy em young and cheap and sell for big bucks!

Plenty of late calculations need to be done before end of season to make sure haven't spent more than 20%! :typing: :typing: :typing: :typing: :typing: :typing:

Season 1
=======
Plenty of wheeling and dealing!

Built up a squad with the likes of young "starlets" Suso, Mason Bennett, Zivkovic, whilst keeping hold of some of the "old guard" like Saviola

League - won it easily

Champ League - Out in 1st group stage then got dumped out of UEFA Cup in 4th round by Rubin

Super Cup - lost 2-0 to POAK

Greek Cup - out at Semi Final stage

So - not a great start but no points available and I was focused on sorting squad out


Loans
======
Only had the 2 that were already there when game started. No other loans in. I did loan out 2 of my players as nobody answered the question on this yet

Transfers
========
Players Sold = £20,105,182

20% of this which I can use as transfer kitty = £4,021,036

Players bought (inc signing fees) = £3,754,346

So - approx £266k under which is all good! :)

Wage bill to start season 2 is £70k

Under the £83k so again all is good.

Why is he 3.8k on mine????????/

AMC
28-10-13, 07:54 PM
Sorry guys busy weekend.

Good work Red, what you've done is fine, and as you said no points for the first season so I wouldn't worry about. Down to £70k already, not much of a drop to meet next season's wage cap.

AMC
28-10-13, 07:57 PM
Why is he 3.8k on mine????????/

£3.7k on mine, musn't have a wage set in the editor which is a bit of a bugger.

Redknapp69
28-10-13, 09:00 PM
I'm back up to 85k now though!

Karagounis 37yr old has joined just for 1 year as experience and nicking 10k a week off me - need to get it trimmed by 20k though to qualify for next season!

JLa
28-10-13, 09:09 PM
Six months in.
Players out: 15.5 million
Players in: 1.2 million
Signing-on fees: 347k
= 9,67 %

Current wage bill (squad): 65k/w

I have no idea how I'm going to cut further 20k off this budget and still field a decent team! The league is going smoothly this year (13 games, 13 wins so far), but the Champions League not so much. Finished 3rd in a tough group with Arsenal, Ajax and Bayern. My UEFA cup campaign started well though; 6-0 over Feyenoord.

Enjoying this! :)

Nice idea mate but going through greek league taking contol of panathinaikos and just going with it is even bigger challenge the team starts with -15m balance 5k/m wage budget a lot of players on the way out and big rivalries with olympiakos aek and paok that can fire any coach I really cant buy anyone till I get the balance straight the crisis chalenge is made for that team I guess

JLa
28-10-13, 10:20 PM
Question: I sold players for 15 million in the first season. Can I use some of that money to buy players in season 2?

ozRooster
28-10-13, 10:24 PM
Good question JLa, was thinking the same thing.

DraleX
28-10-13, 10:25 PM
Starting this also, would like it if you could explain the 20% of the transfers also. It is just whatever u sell that season 20% of that money? and then next season if u dont sell anything cant buy anything either?

So you've gone above the limit of £83k?

The transfer restriction is for the whole of the challenge, so say you sold £15m of players in season 1, and no one in season 2 and 3, for them 3 seasons you can spend a maximum of £3m (including signing on fees).

Balls - yes - I am at 85k. What is penalty for that? Karagounis now being shipped out! Only started 4 games as well!

Let me know if its a DQ so I can stop doing this. Can't be arsed to start it again tho

We've decided you can't receive any points for that season mate, alternatively you can restart which I imagine you will. Be careful next time though!

30-10-13, 03:06 PM
I've found lots of promising Greek youngsters who probably would accept wages next to nothing, but they won't sign for Olympiacos. "Won't sign for a rival club", psh. Stupid kids who prefer to spend their careers on the benches at Panathanaikos and the likes, when they could play important roles in my magnificent (cough) squad. Oh well, gonna have to find some foreigners then.

01-11-13, 04:17 AM
Finished the first season, sold almost everyone from the old team, got around 40 million for them, bought a bunch of youngster all around the world. Won both league and cup so I get a shot at first points in teh super cup quite soon. Wages are 75k before the first game of the season. The hardest part of this challenge so far is the no free transfers allowed, some people I try to buy, but i cant then they leave the club when their contract runs out and im not allowed to approach them. Everytime it happens I cry a bit inside :D I can already tell wages for season 3 will be doable but after that its gonna be really tough to make it happen. I think league atleast is gonna be easy to win but I dont expect to win any games in champs league :(
Too lazy to post screens now, i ll just do it all if I manage to survive till the end of the challenge :)

Season 1

As others, I won everything domestically, finished 3rd in CL and then crashed out of UEFA Cup immediately. :sad:

Beginning of season 2

The wage bill is well within limits.

http://i43.tinypic.com/j99emt.png

So far, I've sold 32 players, thus earning £15,946,665.

http://i44.tinypic.com/i4mpgz.png

20% of my profits so far is £3,189,331, of which I've spent £1,861,339. It was the cost(including signing fees) of 12 players I've bought so far.

http://i39.tinypic.com/2ik7i1y.png

I'll post all players/loans in and out screens at the end of the challenge, can't be bothered now.

On the day of the first game of season 2 my wages were 70k

Won the league:

Got knocked out of the cup due to underestimating my opponents in first leg (0:1) and an early red card in the second leg (2:2) in quater finals I think.
In champions league I ended up 4th in the group so no uefa cup :(

http://img716.imageshack.us/img716/1911/9spj.jpg (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/716/9spj.jpg/)

I am going to save the math for the end of challenge but so far I am about 400k under the budget and I dont plan to sign any players soon but might sell some so that part is gonna be ok. Every player in my team has a cotract till 2016 so I wont have to renew them either which is cool. On the first day of season 3 my wages are 60k which is preety cool and I expect a win or two in european competitions this season aswell.

Points after season 2: 250

JLa
03-11-13, 03:10 PM
Too bad we don't get any points for season 1, because I won both the league and the cup. Got knocked out of CL in the first group stage, but won the UEFA cup. Not too shabby for a Greek side on a strict budget.

At the moment I've spent 10,1 % of my transfer earnings in new players and signing on-fees. Season 2 is coming up - total wage bill (squad): 55k/w

First time ever I've had to create an Excel-spreadsheet to play CM! :lol:

Season 1
=======
After my honest fuck up last time I did things differently this time.

Signed all my players up to Long Term Contracts to protect their worth. Bought in a few players and then did sell a few but I have a squad now all on long term contracts which will aid future sales as and when they need to go

League - won it easily

Champ League - Out in 1st group stage and came 4th - ouch!

Super Cup - won 5-4 to POAK

Greek Cup - won that 4-1

So - squad is nicely setup and doing well domestically - need to improve on Europe tho!


Loans
======
Only had the 2 that were already there when game started. No other loans in. I did loan out a few of my players

20% of this which I can use as transfer kitty = £4,655,966

Season 3 total 350 points

So far in the challenge 600 points.

Wages on the day of teh first game of season 4 were 50 k
http://img823.imageshack.us/img823/5539/h211.jpg (http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/823/h211.jpg/)

Season 4 was gonna be my best season, I knew my team was capable for big things. Won the super cup and started the league with like 17 straight wins and everything was fine untill I got knocked out of UEFA cup thanks to two red cards and 2 penalties against me in a single game. I was so pissed off... sold my best player for 12 millions and managed to loose to some shit team in the cup that had only 1 shot on my goal lol... So only the league and supercup with my superteam :(

Super cup:50 points
League: 200 points
Season 4 total: 250
After 4 completed seasons: 850 points

I am really having fun but I am not doing that good, i hoped and expected to do better in euro competitions by now. Wages are 44k for the upcoming season 5 and I managed to sign some good players so once again I will remain hopeful. I dont have the numbers right here but according to my calculations I am like 500k below budget so far, will do all the math when I finish the last two seasons.

The Greek league isn't really all that ...

http://i42.tinypic.com/1z2zyo5.png

I'm sad to see one of my best defenders leaving on a free in a couple of months. I can't (or won't!) renew his contract when he's asking for 4,3k/week, it's just not going to happen. Bummer really, he's been great back there.

Torres on a 5.5K contract there.. I wonder if you can keep him. But holy s**t, you got 10 million for Mitroglou? I think I got 2! :lol: And you got over 6 million for Weiss ... good job man.

06-11-13, 09:33 AM
I think I plan to keep a few star names - the spine basically. And that will cost me but will have youngsters around them

Having all my team contracted to 2016/2017 had helped.

Most of the team want to move to a 'bigger club' at some point and although I am holding onto a few you have to cash in when good money comes along

PSG forked out £10m (plus 25% next sale) for that Mitroglu guy :)

I ALWAYS try and get 25% added to every deal :)

Got a replacement striker in and is a beast - scored 6 goals on debut in Champ League qualifier :)

I found it really hard to get the total wage bill below 50k. Max. wage in my team is a midfielder at 3,8k/week, and I consider selling him to find a cheaper replacement. 43k is going to be tough. Recently I got a youngster promoted through the academy, and was thrilled to see that he 1) wasn't completely rubbish and 2) accepted 100/week. Six-year contract, no release clause, done deal. :D

yeah - this is a bloody good challenge to try and break Europe

if I didn't draw Barca last season I reckon I would have had a good chance of winning CL - but Barca dicked on us!

Think some people could tactically fall out of CL, and win UEFA which would give them a points boost!

Champ League
============
Faced fecking Messi's Barca again in the 1st group stage and was worried we might not even get through that but 2 superb draws against Barca set us up and we despatched Monaco and Schalke to progress

Group Stage 2 had Juve, Ath Madrid and Porto. Started of terribly by losing away to Juve. But 2 home wins v Porto and Ath Madrid put us back in it. But we then tried to throw it away by losing gameweek 4 away to Porto. So - after 4 games - won 2 and lost 2 - very tight group!. Last ditch goal for us to beat Juve 3-2 at home was key. Placed us then in a decent position to qualify and amazingly BATTERED Ath Madrid away 4-0 - unbelievable Jeff!

Quarter Final - had the worst draw possible - DORTMUND :(

However - somehow we managed to SMASH them 4-1 in the 1st leg - AWAY FROM HOME!

2nd leg was tied 1-1 but we win 5-2 overall - we really had belief now! :grouphug:

Semi-Finals - MILAN. This time home leg was first. We got an early goal and held on for dear life. Would be a great result to take for 2nd leg. But the fuckers scored in the LAST MINUTE - El Sharwaaary (or whatever his name is) - DISASTER! :( 1-1 final score from 1st leg

http://imageshack.com/a/img33/4283/ynr6.png (http://imageshack.com/i/0xynr6p)Uploaded with ImageShack.com (http://imageshack.com)

As league was wrapped up I completely rested fiirst team and played youngsters keeping the guys fresh for 2nd leg (to be fair I did this all Euro campaign as I built up a decent 2nd XI)

2nd leg away and that fucker El Sharawaay scores in 1st minute - BASTARD! Petrucci scored for us to tie the match 20 mins later before we slipped ahead bang on the half time whistle - Wonderkid Nurishi scoring
2nd half and the match at 3-2 on aggreagate with us leading on the extra away goal. Niang scores in 65th minute to tie it up but we still lead. Amazingly my converted left back Pulhac gets the ball from range and smahes it from 30 yards or so and it flies in! We lead 4-3 on aggregate and even if they score again we have the away goals - and that's the way it stayed!

We are through to the Champions League Final!!!!!! :) :horn:

The Final - vs ZENIT
===============
I asked the boys to enjoy the game and if they do that we have a good chance as we have beaten better opposition on the way

Big shock is that HULK was dropped - that gave us a massive boost - we were well up for it now! :boxing: :boxing:

And it showed - an early goal after 4 minutes from player of the season Nurishi. We never looked back after that - playing in style and controlling the game - goals flooded in from different players and I even had time to bring some players on for last appearance who were leaving the club by sacrificing themselves for the impending 53k wage restriction for season 3

We are CHAMPIONS OF EUROPE!!!!!! - 1000 points! :cheer: :horn: :first:

http://imageshack.com/a/img51/7198/q4a2.png (http://imageshack.com/i/1fq4a2p)Uploaded with ImageShack.com (http://imageshack.com)



I basically had a great first XI (mainly from an awesome spine in team) but also then had a good young 2nd XI as well - the youngsters played the league whilst First Team played most of Cup Games and all Europe - took a while re-jigging everyone on a weekly basis but proved worth it winning everything!

The 53k wage has had an impact and a couple of decent players have had to leave but we have also made a agood signing in potential "wonderkid" GABIGOL. We will see how he fits in

I am confident for next season as have most of the squad remaining, but I will certainly have to lose at least 2 "star" players next year to get the budget down to 48k

Points for season 3 was 1,350

Total points = 1,700

I've completed season one of this so far. Managed to win the Greek Super Cup, Greek Cup and the League. I conceded 16 goals all season in the league which I was quite proud of. In the Champions Cup I went out of the first group despite a spirited comeback in the second half of the fixtures, but fell short against Fenerbahce who completely demolished me in the UEFA Cup. Currently got the wage total down to £60k which is promising for the next two seasons.

Champ League
============
As before, the league was going well so I could play full team in Europe and youngsters/2nd team in league - this paid off again getting through group stages easy enough

QUARTERS - Faced Milan and lost the away leg 1-0 :(

But we managed to win home leg 3-1 to win 3-2 on aggregate (although was a nervy 2nd half as if they scored a 2nd away goal they would have gone through!)

SEMIS - Real Madrid. Away leg was drawn 2-2. I had 10 men in 2nd half but took a late 2-1 lead - however the little fecker Ronaldo scored in last minute to salvage a draw for them

Home leg - we battered them 5-2 to win 7-4 on aggregate - Kolar scoring 4! :)

FINAL - Chelsea were the opponents and to be honest it they didn't put up much of a fight - a man of the match performance from GABIGOL sealed the deal! BACK TO BACK EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS! :cheer: :cheer:

Pretty much had the same squad as last year and no major injuries so all went well

BUT - in order to get to the wage level this year I have made a BIG sacrifice - selling KOLAR for £10m + 25% fee - gutted to lose him but I have a couple of very able young deputy's that I am sure will do our team justice!

Got a couple of players on transfer list including David Bentley who has been superb since joining us and have just signed a top keeper from Argentina

Think we are still in a good position to go for this season - might need 1 or 2 more players but the finances need to improve for that!

I'm not far from last season wage bill so I should be OK getting to that as well

Champ League
============
Had a few super-keeper performances against me in early rounds and looked like I was going out! (see posts above)

But we turned it around and got through both group stages - only just though!

QUARTERS - Beat Zenit 4-2 on aggregate

SEMIS - beat Real Madrid 6-4 on aggregate

FINAL - vs Bayern

We go a goal down in 1st half but a goal in 2nd half from one of the best players I have managed (Nurishi) got us back in it. Then a reckless challenge from Dante got him a red for last man and we despatched the penalty!

CHAMPIONS LEAGUE WINNERS - 4 YEARS IN A ROW! :) :cheer: :horn: :first:

Winners - 1000 points!

Transfers
========
Total Players Sold in challenge = £94,483,394

20% of this which I could use as transfer kitty = £18,896,679

Players bought in challenge (inc signing fees) = £17,588,853

So - approx £1.3m under final budget which is all good! :)

Starting this challenge now, just want to clarify one point. Can we buy players on season 1? As long we don't spend more than 20% of the value of players sold?
The 20% is based on the players sold each season or the amount gathered on sold players through the challenge?
Can we loan out players to reduce the wage bill value?


Congratz Redknapp and JLa for your results

Redknapp69
20-11-13, 09:32 AM
1 - yes - can buy season 1

2 - it's a cumulative figure so if you sell £10m in year 1 you can spend the 20% (I.e £2m) anytime - doesn't have to be in year 1. Just make sure you don't go over allowance during season

3 - I didn't hear back an answer about loans. Did loan out in year 1 but think that was about it
I only did it to get guys experience - you shouldn't have to loan season 1/2 to be under the generous wGe budget

Not sure it affects the wage bill or not though. I guess it does but I never thought of that! Season 1/2 target is easy but wouldn't rely on loans for other seasons
Also, unless it's season long loan then that player will be back in your squad so you can't go over wage limit any time during season

I'm sure the guys will confirm point 3 for you

Kingsley
07-03-14, 11:01 AM
I'm starting to have a look at this. Regarding the transfer fees. If I get an offer over 18 months, can I spend all of that transfer fee immediately, or is it only the proporion of the fee already received that I can spend, So, Say I get £1.8m over 18 months, that is £100k per month, so in 3 months time do I have 20% of £300k or 20% of £1.8m.

Season 1

I know season 1 is not about scoring points, but we still managed to win the League, the Cup and the Super Cup, there maybe no points scored, but it does set you up well to know the standard of the oposition, which is poor. Actually, the league was very close with Panathinaikos until the 21st December when we went to their patch and gubbed them 5-0. We never saw them again.

http://i1283.photobucket.com/albums/a558/iankjack/USER-PC/EasyCapture3_zps72d78af4.jpg~original

The Champions League we got to the second group stage despite Barca thrashing us 5-0 in the first phase. Up against Man City, PSG and Bayern, it all went down to the final match. We needed a draw at The Etihad to qualify and when Yaya got sent off we looked good value for that point. We had chances to win it and probably should have, but Ashley Smith-Brown scored on his debut and Joe Hart got man of the match to send us home with nothing.

The real job was to get the squad wage down from £90K to £83k. With a 50 man squad there were certainly oportunities, but Carl Medjani's £10k per week stood out. He was first to be listed. There were a number of players with contracts up in 12 months time. Most wanted silly money to extend, so they were all listed as well. There were a lot of kids who looked surplus to requirements. And they were also listed.

By the start of season 2 I had sold 24 players for a total of £39.5 million (some of them are on 12 month deals and some have additional clauses, so not all of the income has come through. According to the income screen I have received just over £33m so far). 6 players have been brought in, spending (including signing fees) is £678k, so well under budget.

Note: Alexis Galanis came through the academy and was immediately released, mainly because he was crap, but are we allowed to sign academy players ?

The total wage bill for the start of season 2 is already down to £49K and the aim is to get a squad of 25 players and under the £43k target as soon as possible, then it is just maintaining or improving the quality. Not being able to sign the free young players is a huge limitation !

Redknapp69
08-07-14, 07:17 PM
Superb woirk in season 1 trophy wise and getting that wage bill down ASAP - unbelievable stuff!

I had to constantly check my wage bill and sell accordingly season on season!

Good luck next year and hopefully a better CL run - league usually looks after itself so ample opportunity to rest players

Season 2

Christ this is hard. I know a challenge is supposed to be hard, but finding the players without using freebies and loans is seriously hard. I must have had deals agreed for about 200 or 300 players, only for them to want stupid wages. Some spotty youth on £50 a week for a Bulgarian amature side suddenly wants £7k per week. **** OFF !

Anyway, onto the season and my biggest worry was finding a replacement for Mitroglou's 41 goals last season. The job went to 29 year old Cuban Roberto Linares, a £70k find on £1800 per week. Supported by a Vietnamese Le Cong Vinh a £50k purchase on £200 a week, Linares stuck away 51 goals in 43 games. Sadly he thinks he is too big for Olympiacos, but as his contract it to past the end of this challenge ….. tough luck my Cuban friend !

Domestic

Super Cup - Won - 50 points
League - Won - 200 points (Competition is really poor)
Greek Cup - Won - 100 points

(Cup final was tough with most players on 80-85% fitness)

Europe

Tough first phase but topped group ahead of Arsenal, Shakhtar and PSG.
Horror second phase but again came top ahead of Chelsea, Juventus and Galatasaray.
Quarter final lost first leg 1-0 to Arsenal but came back to win the tie 2-1 (winner 10 mins from time)
Semis Came up against defending champions Bayern and lost 2-0 at home. Could only manage a 1-1 in the second leg, so no points.

Wages are already down to under the season 6 target and I have the 25 man squad that I want (there is an academy graduate being released in the morning), so I just need to maintain the numbers going forward. Also, only 3 non-EU players, so no selection headaches. 2 players are out of contract next summer and neither want to talk about deals.

Kingsley
10-07-14, 11:48 AM
Yeh. I hope that the hard work is done. I am using a pretty standard 4-4-1-1 that has been very reliable in the past. Solid at the back, but doesn't usually score as many as this.

Kingsley

Season 3

Signing players on low wages is still the biggest problem and you can spend hours scouting and agreeing transfers, only for it all to fall apart when they want massive wages. I've been concentrating my scouting on Eastern Europe and the Caribbean but may have to change focus as the deals coming through have been limited

Onto the season and Linares, despite injuries and suspensions kept scoring for fun and broke his own league record which now stands at 27 (in a 26 game program !

Domestic

Super Cup - Won - 50 points
League - Won - 200 points
Greek Cup - Won - 100 points (only just ! Lost to a National B side in the group and only came second, then lost the semifinal 1st leg as well !)

First phase was close.

http://i1283.photobucket.com/albums/a558/iankjack/USER-PC/EasyCapture1_zps654e4d25.jpg~original

I can't remember seeing a team go out on 12 points before. Even worse, we were in 3rd place and 2-0 down at home to Barcelona with 18 minutes left of the final game. Terry Antonis scored and although still behind, we moved ahead of Milan. Can't work that one out.

Second phase was close.
http://i1283.photobucket.com/albums/a558/iankjack/USER-PC/EasyCapture2_zpsc230bb9c.jpg~original

Again it came to the final win and we needed a 1-0 win at home to Dortmund to dump Chelsea out. Bummer !

Quarter final beat United 2-0 at Old Trafford, so only needed a 1-1 draw in the home leg
Semi final wat the other half of Manchester. We squeeked a 2-1 lead at home and I was worried about the away goal. I didn't need to be. We won 2-0 at their place.
Final. Bayern put us out last year. It was a cracker. Linares scored. Ribery equalised. Linares scored. Mandzukic equalised. Extra time. No score in first 15 mins. 3 minutes after the restart, Lahm scores the golden goal.

No points again.

Season 4

Once again it was all about the goals from Robert Linares. My Cuban striker is on fire and has now racked up 139 goals in 125 games for Olympiacos. He still wants away, but is going nowhere. No records broken this season, but he is still invaluable. Best new signing was the capture of Mumin Nurishi from Dynamo Zagreb.

Domestic

Still no real opposition

Europe

We cut it fine in the first group and had to rely on Shakhtar getting a draw with Bayern in the final game to progress in second place behind runaway winners Napoli. Second phase was easier and we qualified with 2 games to spare ahead of Porto, PSG and Atletico Madrid.

Quarter final came up against Barcelona and committed the cardinal sin of letting them score after 4 minutes of the away leg. We battled hard and held them until 30 minutes to play when I asked the 4th official to make a change at the next stoppage. Barca went up the other end to make it 2-0. I nearly smashed the screen. It left us too much to do and although Mascherano was sent off in the second leg, all we could manage was a Boccara goal 2 minutes from time.

No points again.

Transfers

Not quite so busy. 3 players had to go as they had hit 32 and could retire next summer. They were replaced like for like. Felipe is carrying an injury and he had to go, but I already had Mzava in to replace him (just before the window closed last year, Felipe had a long injury and I captured Mzava then). I have 1 player with a contract due to expire next summer and he is transfer listed with some interest. I have replacements lined up.

Season 5

Another typical season Dominant at home, but just short of the mark in Europe. Hit badly by injuries and suspensions at times, so quite happy overall.

Domestic

PAOK did push us hard. Right upto the second head to head game there was just 3 points in it. Linares got a hat-trick. Goodbye PAOK. They also gave us a game in the cup final, but my Aussie/Greek winger Terry Antonis grabbed a winner 15 minutes from time. Another clean sweep

Super Cup - Won - 50 points

Europe

Same old story. We are good, but not good enough. Phase 1 was straight forward. Ourselves and Man City thrashed Basel and Banik Ostrava. We topped the group thanks to 2 wins over City with Joe Hart having howlers in both games. It was the same story in the second phase where ourselves and Dortmund thrashed Inter Milan and Porto.

Quarter final paired us with Arsenal it was a hard battle, but Musavu-King and Nurishi gave us a great chance to progress. An away goal would have helped, but Ali was on top form in the away game and all that Arsenal tould pull back was a single Walcott strike.

Dortmund again in the semi finals and we had won both ties in the second group. This time we failed to fully capitalise on a man advantage and only had a 1-0 lead to take to Germany. That was cancelled out early in the second half and just as we were preparing for extra time, a late double strike sealed it for Dortmund.

No points again.

Transfers

The squad is now fairly settled. Felipe had to go as he had long term injury problems. Diamantakos refused to sign a new contract and could leave for free in 12 months while Papazacharias was 32 and might well retire for free next summer. They all had to go.

Musavu-King, Markelis and Delamia Milnar are direct replacements. Ballas is a new addition for next season

aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrggggggggghhhhhhh!

That 2nd leg was a killer mate - an away goal and they would have needed 3. Did they have the better of the game or did your players have an off day?

So frustrating - that was a real chance for the final for you there

But could fate deliver in the last season?.................

They were well worth the win in the second leg, but we should have wrapped it up in the first. The team played well, but Linares had a rare off day infront of goal.

Season 6

Same old story. Unbeatable domestically, butnot quite upto the standard against the big boys.

Domestic

All opposition pretty much folded and the league was won with 6 games to spare, which is quite an achievement when there are only 26 games in the program. Even a red card for the keeper in the cup final couldn't stop us grabbing an injury time winner. When the gods are on your side …...

Super Cup - Won - 50 points
League - Won - 200 points
Greek Cup - Won - 100 points

Europe

No problem in the first phase where we lost in Barcellona, but ended up topping the group thanks to wins in all the other 5 games Inter and Rubin were the teams to go out and the last 8 minutes of the home game against Barca were memorable. We scored 3 goals and Suarez was sent off. It was worth doing this challenge for that alone !

Second phase was Napoli who had beaten us 6 times in a row. United who we had an equal record with and Marseille who we had beaten twice. It could be tight. At home we thrashed Napoli but couldn't score, only for them to win with a last minute penalty. We finally got revenge away. We took a quickfire 2-0 lead. They pulled it back to 2-2 and looked like going onto win until Nikos Kourellis scored with 5 minutes left. Nobody beats us 8 times in a row ! With that monkey off our back, we beat United twice and Marseille away to be through with a game to spare. A full team of youth players was sent out for the final game, hoping that United would beat Napoli and Marseille might take second place. Napoli won !

Quarter final was another of our bogey teams, all conquering Bayern. It was all going so well when we won 2-0 at home. In the second leg, Mohamed Ali had a howler. The aggregate score was tied 10 minutes into the second half. It looked like we might hang on for extra time, but Ali dropped the ball on Toni Kroos toe and we were out.

No points again.

Transfers

Nobody had to go for this season and all financial targets had been met. At Christmas I got rid of Portuguese winger Miguel Rosa as he was carrying an injury and replaced him with Romanian Claudiu Bumba. I added a midfielder Ballas and a forward Kourellis, because I could !

Total points so far = 1,750

Really enjoyed this and the financial constrains were something different. Could have done with a bit more fight from the other Greek sides, but hey ….. this is champ ! In hindsight, I might have done better in Europe if I had not cut the finances so dramatically so quickly. That said, I can't think of many players who under performed and we were a bit unlucky with poor games at key times. Roberto Linares with 199 goals in 188 games was my best find

Results thread will be updated later

Still a great effort to conquer domestically and consistently whilst keeping your finances on point throughout the whole challenge. I reckon if you had a more consistent keeper who could handle the big games then you might have found yourself with some CL points. Still, you finished it, and that's what matters.

A few questions before begining this complicate challenge :confused:...
I usually play it à la française (euros, wage by month)...
* I suppose that the wage bill is by week.
* No free transfer allowed, but can we sign a end contract player before he leaves his club?
* I don't understand what the 20% are... It's the total of the players sold by year or for the challenge? And how can you have this information?
* How can you have the signing fees informations?
* I haven't the automn 2013 DB... Dead link in the download section!!!

Clearly i'm not mods but i will try to answer your question with information when i did it

* Weekly
* I did not sign end contract player as i assume this will also destroy the spirit of the challenge
* For the challenge and you have to keep records at the end of the season I did create an excel file for this :D

Thank you Faceless, I'm trying this challenge with the 4-1-3-2 default tactic...
So a lot of dificulties for me but I suppose it will be funny!!!

I have 2 questions:

*I bought an italian player (from Sienna), 700000 after 50 games played. I suppose that I have to count the 700 000 only when the player will have played 50 games.
I'm right?

*What about the money you give a player when you renew his contract?

In the very begining of this strange challenge! Like everybody, it's a hard fight to renew the contract of the good players... January of the first season, I bought some promising players (Mattia Perin, Fernando Gaibor, Claudiu Bumba...) and give a long long new contract to Saviola... At this point, 50.000/week and only 10% of the money used.

Hi mate, looking at this you've spent £650,000 on Signing on Fees and £2.08m on transfers which is £2.73m spent, but player sales is only £12,992,505 so that is 21% and you can only spend 20% of transfer money raised, so am I missing something? For transfers it would probably be easier you taking a picture of your transfers in/out screens rather than the income/expenditure pages.

I'll have to look tonight when home as I can't load pics in work, but I couldn't see anything with money raised in the first season which could be carried forward, and as stated one season doesn't have a screenshot of expenditure for that season, just income twice.

Agree with you on incompleted information. Just saying that transfer restrictions should be for the whole challenge. Hope Kiki still have it, as personally I do not keep it for long. Great job for both of you.

You have to look at the "année dernière" column, it's for the year before!!!
For the income, look at the line "vente de joueurs", for the expenditure, look at the lines "primes à la signature" and "achats de joueurs".

And I have a problem with the pictures of season 4: the 2 I saved on my PC are the same... I'm searching the saved game...

That's good. I didn't have time to go over this last night and probably won't tonight either with the England game, but the OP does ask for screenshots of your transfers in/out screen so post them for the 6 seasons as that's a lot easier than me trying to make sense of screenshots in French and trying to work out which season is for which.

Grrr...It was a bad savegame corrupted....But on the transfers screenshots it doesn't appear "signing on fees"... It's why I did it like this...
I have the original screenshoots, so if you want I can surround... Tell me if it could help you... The screenshoots of season 1 are the ones at the begining of the season 2, it's why I have a line after the season 6, end of challenge... I'm sorry about the complicating way I did it, but the challenge was quite complicate himself!!!

AMC

The OP asks for Transfer In/Out screens though so I don't know why you wouldn't take them, then the finances page can be used purely for looking at signing on fees.

I'll look through all the screenshots again sometime this week.

03-07-18, 09:43 AM
You're right, but the OP asks Income figures and Players/Loans in and out. I thought that it asks only the loans screens... I accuse my bad english...
I understand now what I should have do...

AMC
03-07-18, 09:46 AM
The problem is, is the finance screen doesn't show if someone has made any free signings as the figure wouldn't change if they did, so the transfer screen is needed, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on that one if you can't provide it.

Thank you! Fortunately I'm playing more simple challenges now... And with the 4-1-3-2 default tactic, the challenge is often: just completing it. No highscore!!! You can apply a -1pt penality, I deserve it! I will be the last of this damned challenge!!! :drama:

So, trying to start this challenge. Got the Autumn 2013 patch, and everyone is talking about Saviola. I've got the autumn 2013 patch, but Saviola is at Real Madrid in my game. Galletti is highest earner, and a few other familiar faces.
Any ideas?

Edit - Hmm, given he was Real 07-09, something isn't right!

edit 2 - sorted

Season 1

Season 1 finished with the domestic treble. Champions League saw a semi final defeat to FC Bayern. Managed to sign some guys to new deals, but feel like after season 2 I could be struggling for quality!
Here are screenies of finances and transfers

https://s8.postimg.cc/k408vfdat/greek_tragedy_-_EOS_1_-_expenditures.png
https://s8.postimg.cc/4vabho6rp/greek_tragedy_-_EOS_1_-_income.png


Income from players sold = 5'935'623 * 20% = £1'187'124
Outlay on players and signing on fees = £1'066'395


Season 2

Wages were low for the start of season 2, well under the required mark...
https://s8.postimg.cc/xm757mpf9/greek_tragedy_-_SOS_2_-_stats_page.png

The season started with the Super Cup versus PAOK
https://s8.postimg.cc/td2f5frat/greek_tragedy_-_season_2_Super_Cup.png

Then an almost unbeaten league campaign followed, with goals galore
https://s8.postimg.cc/z18pwbnxh/greek_tragedy_-_season_2_League_Title.png

The Cup Final nearly became a nightmare, but my boys pulled through

https://s8.postimg.cc/bzs4qlj51/greek_tragedy_-_EOS_2_-_income.png



Income from players sold = 9'270'719 * 20% = 1'854'143
Outlay on signings and signing on fees = 1'785'667

Points so far
Super Cup = 50
League = 200
Cup = 100
Total = 350

The Champions League saw me knocked out in Phase 2, with Man United, Zenit and Bayern Munich to strong for me.

This screenshot only shows your income as well, no expenditure page.

I still haven't received an expenditure screenshot for this month mate so I still can't add your score to the table.

I can't add your score to the tables then I'm afraid mate, I gave you the benefit of the doubt when you didn't take screenshots of your transfers in to show you didn't sign any free players despite the rules asking for them, but I require the expenditure screen for that season to prove you didn't go over the 20% rule too.

kikivampy
22-01-19, 10:14 PM
I really don't know what happened, I did something wrong with this season 4, I posted the same screenshots twice thinking I did it as the others seasons...
Can't proove now my sincerity...
I'm sure you trust me, because is there one reason to cheat when you played all this challenge with a default tactic and you made a very bad score?
I did it in the spirit of the challenge, but I recognize I screwed up the screenshots...
I will accept your decision... It's frustrating because I played all the challenge with the rules and I can't proove it...

Kind of. Don't know if starting year was the issue or not. 2015 is just default setting for Tapani2.21 patch that i use, I just try to stick with default settings. And i already completed the challenge again without any bug. Now counting point and sum it up
