I've never not started a challenge straight away but this may have to wait a while as enjoying new game on latest update

Looks a toughie though and properly looking forward to it! :ok:

:(
I created the save without the Tapani patch - I thought that is how you had done the previous save games?

Redknapp69
16-04-16, 11:22 AM
Hmmmm - I already had Tapani patch installed to my ongoing game and 7 subs there?

Although saying that I'm sure Dermo may have passed me a link with new update and Tapani patch with new colours and modern finances already installed (you were talking me through it from your thread)

But somehow gone from 7 subs to 5 :(

I should have just created the challenge myself and prob would have been fine

Doesn't matter anyway - you can only use 3 subs! Just always nice to have the options

Update after 4 games. 2 wins and 2 draws so a great start but my team is shite and staying up is the aim

Really good challenge this as hard to get a good team given the club rep/stadium size etc

Probably got about 10-11 'new' players already signed so it's more getting players I really want now than fattening the squad

Before the first competitive fixture of the second season.

I'm on this. Getting halfdecent players in first season is pretty hard. They tend to be overpriced or simply not good enough. I have accumulated a crapload of screenshots of clubs in lower divisions for my 9 signings so far. Hoping to get to 6th place first season. Can't get this unstable side to win consistently. Star players so far; Moussa Dembele and Daniel Ayala. Lots of so-so signings include Ben Mee, Sam Winnall, Milan Lalkovic and such. Threading water now, until some decent side goes down and we snap up all their good uns.

Might be better to screenshot the division that you're buying from if you're buying multiple players from each division. I'd imagine going forward after the first season that you wouldn't need as many screenshots.

thought I'd stick to the rules this time :), expecting to buy 5/6 players per future season, so I'll be fine.

Also I think scoring points in the first season should be -on-. It's even harder during transitional times.

I plan on just doing "transfers in" for 1st season as most of us know which are NOT prem clubs so that should suffice 1st season

2nd onwards will take screenies from the club and division its in

Got a WEDGE of players joining in January window

5th place after 7 games and have a game in hadn so doing ok so far

18-04-16, 05:49 PM
Sold a lot of the reserves already.. The first team and the 2 players with big injuries will be a big problem.

One signing in from QPR already, Prem quality too with another on the way from same club :D

For the first season you may as well do what Redders is planning to do and post a screenshot of your transfers in. It will be obvious if you've signed anyone outside of the Premiership. From season two onwards you'll have to screenshot the divisions or club squads that you buy from.

Sorry lads. I'll get a new link sorted soon and give it a test before posting it. I can only apologise!

Why do people need a link anyway? If anything it takes longer to download the link then just making the game yourself.

Jesus
19-04-16, 01:22 PM
It's more to do with future proofing the challenges. Some people prefer to have a save handed to them rather than downloading the required database, especially if they're trying an older challenge.

AJ

Season one

I loaded my own game so no problems crashing... Wierd one this, finished 17th but got 47 points! Nearly got relegated. Liverfool won the league with 67 points low total. Now to get rid of the rest of the players and sort out my tactic.

Fire sale at Bournemouth, got 5 original players left to sell in a month, looking like i might fail to get rid before start of season 2!!! Would that be a fail? Or as long as i dont play them is that ok? Transfer windows are on so its a bit tough, the board are blocking loads of transfers and releasing players too. The only way i could see round it is to release players then quit then add manager but that is cheating...

It wouldn't be a fail but you wouldn't get any points for season two. You've had a full season to get shut of them!

Just release the players you cannot sell?

The board block it, unrealistic transfer fees and to valuable of player. Got 15 days to sell a few players including Callum Wilson before the start of season 2, might have to bite the bullet and run season 2 and earn no points.

You're not allowed free players.
You have to buy all your signings.

AJ
24-04-16, 08:33 AM
Entering final stages of season one. We're in the cup final (gonna be a problem as most of my players are cuptied) and steadily in the top 5. Sold for 37.5, bought for 32.5.

Funny how I got three players (Robles, Powell, Mendes) who had previously been sold a division down and immediatly were unhappy.

How are you guys doing?

Pisani
24-04-16, 12:04 PM
I just finished season 1 and had a blast ! Won the FA cup on pens against Southamton :happy: but lost my lead in the league on the very last day :mad:

http://i68.tinypic.com/23jpcaa.jpg

Well, too bad there's no points for 1st season...

Sold players for 31M with some more money coming in when the last players get shipped on July1 - and spend 16M on new signings, the best signing being my new keeper...
The board spend 10M of the profit on new facilities and only expect us to stay clear of relegation :noidea: but I have other plans :ok:

Jesus
24-04-16, 04:15 PM
Very close finish there.
What formation did you apply?

Pisani
24-04-16, 05:53 PM
Yea close one for sure...
I haven't played NWW for years so I just went with the default 4-1-3-2 and all season long I tinkered with the arrows and instructions to find a suitable outlook...

Jesus
26-04-16, 02:56 PM
Seems the old 4132 served you really well. Did you get any good ratings out of your new signings or is there work to be done in the summer?

Pisani
26-04-16, 05:37 PM
I would put my good start down to some decent transfers - 33 of them in the first year to be exact... the goalie being the best buy :ok:
Lots of dealing to be done still though - spreading the wealth rite :bowl:

AJ
30-04-16, 09:53 AM
deep into season three. Going quite well, my 442 works perfectly. Lucky for me Leicester went down in season one, so Kante, Mahrez and Vardy are the heart of my succesfull team. Will be winning our second title, won the League Cup, going for a triple with the FA cups. Already bagged the UEFA cup last season, but failed to win the World Club Champs. Made a crapload of screenies, so that will be fine.

Quite like this challenge, chapeau!

Redknapp69
30-04-16, 11:01 PM
I'm coming towards end of season 1 and doing badly - but should stay up

Made too many signings really so havn't had a settled team. Hopefully sort that out in summer tho

Pisani
02-05-16, 11:39 AM
Things are well on the south coast - although it is a bit awkward building a top team in such mediocre facilities... currently I have the scouts from FC Barcelona and Real Madrid running around asking for the cava and tapas but there is none to be found... #badhost

02-05-16, 05:52 PM
First time I've been to these challenges, so went to this one first as it was top of the list, have to say, loving the concept and the rules and regs, very good challenge, might take a stab at this, can I just confirm a couple things, some of which may have already been answered, but would like confirmation

I'm ok using the Tapni 2.21 with the transfer windows?

No WibWobs but any other exceptions on tactics? such as full backs/wingers

I hate the contract protection feature, hence I have it disabled, is this ok?

Has Bournemouth's bank account been altered at all?



I'm actually considering knocking my evening plans on the head to kick this off, but the wife may rip my bollocks off, so guess this will have to wait


Cheers

Craig Forrest
02-05-16, 05:57 PM
I assume that there are no centralized/cheat tactics allowed.... so there probably have to be 2 wide players somewhere (DL & DR, ML & MR, etc...)

I think you're fine with everything else but we'll see what the other challenge mods think :ok:

Concluded season 4 with a third league title and a fourth FA cup. Crashed n the CL and lost the UEFA final on pens. Won the World Club Cup and European Supercup to boot.

Vardy, Mahrez, Kante have been bloody brilliant.

AJ
05-05-16, 09:28 AM
halfway through the final season. Looks like a sweet farewell party is coming up, with tons of silverware this year. Vardy is drying up, which is sad, but this team is sooooo full of amazing players and all from the lower hells of footie :).

AJ
06-05-16, 07:20 AM
yeah, counting is very hard at my advanced age. Got a season and a half to go...

Very nice getting the Leicester trio on relegation release clauses. All good enough for any top team

AJ
06-05-16, 10:12 AM
none of em had a clause. Had to pay big. Vardy even rejected for a season.

Dermotron
06-05-16, 10:18 AM
Even nicer still :ok:

Harry Redknapp level wheeling and dealing there. I suppose it's a bit easier when they have dropped a league.

Will have a go at this when I've gotten bored of my Anderlecht save

Pisani

No loans, no freebies, no bosmans..... that's what the rules say..... is there something about no player-exchanges?

10-05-16, 10:19 PM
- Only buy players from 1st Division, 2nd Division, 3rd Division, Conference and non-league

I read this and got the idea that if we were to spread the wealth, we would only be allowed to BUY players. So I did.

But I wouldnt fault him for trading, maybe I misread or misunderstood. Certainly feel like Pisani's effort was awesome and legit.

Having a crack at this - great idea for a challenge! Took a bit of a risk as although it's my first go at this database I got rid of as many players as I could straight away and pretty much just had a look for players I rate in real life. Thought it was going to cost me, was 10 points adrift at one point but got it together after a few good buys in January. Just stayed up but in a good position to just go after 3-4 real upgrades for the 2nd season now.

Good first 11 but struggle after that really, especially in defence. Assombalonga went to the African Nations Cup. It was always pretty tight in the top half tbf, we lost 3 of our last 4 and were only 6 points off 6th.

This one's killing me. Think I tried too hard to get rid of players early and just replace them with players not quite suitable. Plus I can't find a tactic that's working for me. Just won my first game of the season, in Matchday 20!!!!! Stranded at the bottom of the table just now.

Season 4

Finally got a tactic I'm happy with and a solid league season!

League - 5th - 600 points!

Europa League - Got a b!tch of a draw v Man City in QF and was dumped out :frusty:

FA Cup - out at QF stage to Newcastle when I was fighting on a few fronts and was the lowest priority at the time

League Cup - played the ressies who I thought would be good enough to win but got tonked in 3rd round 3-1 to Fulham :lol:


Total points - 600

Total for challenge - 1,100

Hoping to keep league form up and maybe with some new recruits (still no "big" club has got relegated in my game for me to recruit thier players) possibly go even better and get CL place

When I was ready the rules back earlier I came to the same conclusion when I read that one. Fair enough, i'll release him I guess. I always feel guilty when I release a player and he doesn't get picked up. Probably more likely in this challenge since I'm only playing with 1 country selected.

Season 5

Great start, then started messing about tinkering with rotation, then went back to a steady 11 and with a backlog of games it paid off for a great end to season!

League – 3rd - 800 points!

Europa League – Having a lovely campaign then a 4-2 away loss v Milan in QF was a blow – but somehow we won 2-0 at home to go through on away goals – all with 10 men :lol: :dance: :party:. We didn’t look back from there battering Fiorentina in Semi’s and had lady luck on our side in final with 2 red cards for Celta in 1st half  :first: - WINNERS of the UEFA Cup - 1,500 points!

FA Cup – Got fecking superkeepered by West Ham in a QF replay :frusty: :cry:

League Cup – Out in 3rd round with a massive shock losing to Bradford 3-2! Their striker got a hat trick and was on fire and another superkeeper done us over :smash: :rant: :mad:


Total points – 2,300 points

Total for challenge - 3,400

STILL NO BIG TEAM RELEGATED FOR ME TO PINCH PLAYERS FROM :cry:

I’m still way behind the league leaders (Liverpool won it early) so that might be too much to ask for but I’m gonna stick with my strongest XI as seems the right thing to do and see where it gets me in final season!

Champions League to Bournemouth as well - shame it'll be too late to spend the money :lol:

LEAGUE - Horrific start – just couldn’t get team selection right. VERY late into the season I finally stumbled upon playing more “British grit” players away and “European flair” players at home and randomly it worked and we went on a fecking AMAZING run to climb to 3rd! - League – 3rd - 800 points! - :third:

Season 1

Transitional period was not so easy or smooth. Did pretty well during the first half of the season but it was a downhill after transfer window. Finished 12th place. Luckily at the end of season board allowed to let the rest of original squad go with considerable compensations. So we are ready do earn score in the second season.

Just found comments mentioned about youth from acadamy. I did offer contracts to 2 players. One never played another one played 1 game. Both are released free already. Hope it is ok

Finished the challenge, really enjoyed it, so much so I haven't got round to starting Brexit challenge.

Here goes with my results:

Season 1 - No points season of course, but here are my signings...

https://i.postimg.cc/VL8VvWwV/Season-1-players-in-2.png


I shamelessley stole GFRay;s NWW tactic, it works nicely.

Season 2 - 16th in the league, QFinal FA Cup, QFinal LEague Cup. Really struggling to get going with my players. Didn't get anyone in who really changed things. Another 0 point season.

Signings - players in, and the other screens to show the 3 teams that were promoted from previous year, and that Norwich, Stoke and Watford had been relegated. In future seasons I just screenshotted premier league.

Season 3 - Much better year, thought Andre Gray would prove to be a good signing, but Matt Smith still proving to be my top striker.

League 8th place = 300
FA Cup win = 500
total = 800


Season 4 - Again improvement, Chris Long coming in and hitting over 20 for the season helped. Nick Powell and Alex Grimaldo very strong signings too.

Lost the league, but still a nice total and 2nd place = 900
League Cup final defeat hurt, absolutely dominated the game
FA Cup, noticed I keep drawing away ties in the cup, really regularly throughout my 5 years.
UEFA Cup, Benfica were a little strong, although John Ruddy was poor in both legs.

Total season 4 = 900
total so far = 1700


Season 5 - My best season yet. Cyle Larin and Marc McNulty both good signings up top. The big one though was Gylfi, made a huge difference in attack.

https://i.postimg.cc/GtQJHYPW/Season-5-Players-IN.png


Stumbled over the line, but won the league on the last day despite a defeat! = 1000 points
More away ties in the Cups.
Champions League, won Phase 1, qualified through Phase 2 beating Inter and Porto, but lost in the Qfinal to Man United. Couldn't get past De Gea to take it to ET at home.

Total season 5 = 1000 points

total for challenge = 2700



Really enjoyable, no idea how people are winning everything with NWW, but not to worry. I finally got the title in the end.

As this is a six seasons challenge, I think you still has one more season to score if you wish. What happened? Also screenshots of full squad/transfer out before season 2 is required as stated in the OP. Do you still have access to savegame?

Hi guys!

OP only mentioned that no loans from EPL or abroad. So domestic loans from lower division would be fine.

First season completed!!!
Very good season, 6th of Premier League.
Default Tactic 4-1-3-2, https://imgur.com/KbMCJqu
I decided to sell the most part of the Bournemouth team, keeping only Boruc (GK), Cook (DC), Wiggings (DL), Murray (SC), Afobe (SC). And Wilson (SC) and Mings (DL) for the end of the season when they return from injury. With a lot of money, I can now build a solid team!!!

Awful middle of season, spoiling good results at the beginning and the end of the year...

Here is my regular team, a good one I think... Problem in defense and I can't recruit because of the huge clauses (after xx games or 1 cap) of my best players... More than 10 millions euros for Pikington, Huddlestone, Whittingham and Hugues... https://imgur.com/rpIyX68
