    There should hopefully be one or two challenges in the coming few weeks, but in the mean time if you check the Challenge Summaries thread here https://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=1704 there are a couple of challenges that can be played on any database which you could do on the latest update.

    Yeh I understand that. It's very odd guys wanting 9k a week who are on less than 1k

    In the player/staff search under Nationality you can filter that to Basque, alternatively you can filter by text and type in "Basque"

    I use this very simple method to find as many Basque players as possible.

    1. Load the game with as much nations as you want, but at least Germany and Spain. Select Germany as your starting league (this will make the game start at 1st July) and select Barakaldo when done loading. The starting with Germany will give you much more time to build up your player pool described below.

    2. Send the 2 scouts you have to scout Spain. This will increase the player pool you can find with "Player Search" greatly. When you get the message that your scout has completed his search, send him to scout Spain again and keep doing this every time you get the message.

    3. You'll now find many more Basque players that wouldn't show up on default in the Player Search as they are 'unknown'. Keep scouting though to keep the player pool updated.

    4. ???
    5. Profit.

    If you type Basque into the normal search function that would show all Basque players regardless if scouted anyway won't it? Although obviously you can't filter for age/position/stats etc

    Jup and that's why I use the method explained. I really don't want to go through dozens of players by manually clicking on them!

    First season done.

    Tactic:
    Spoiler!


    Players in:

    Promotion Playoffs:
    Spoiler!


    Went out in the 3rd round of the Spanish Cup so no points there. Other than that it's 100 for Promotion and 120 poins for goals scored in the league (106) and the playoffs (14) which makes it 220 for the first season.

    That's because the loans ended on the 1st of May Had to play with lesser players, but still got it easily.

    Going great guns

    Looks like it was a hard fought league with a a LOT of losses for your nearest challengers

    How’s the finances? Any decent youth come through or managed to expand Stadium?

    Great effort drk. My second season nearly finished, and well, it isn't so successful...

    Need to be more flexible with tactics because everyone is playing 5 across midfield against me when I'm at home, and some away as well. I just don't get anything like the possession I need and hardly create chances. Need to be able to change tactics, but I'm not so great at creating tactics! More practice needed.

    Stadium expaansion out of the question at the moment, most of my starting 11 were loanees, could be a negative thing.
