    Right - I'm back on this! (only challenge I haven't completed)

    I found my save (thank feck as I scouted a load of players!) - and I played 6 months or so

    I did ask a question that I am not sure was answered - can I take a National job just for a laugh (if I am lucky enough to be offered one)

    Right - time to read the rules again

    Season 1

    Summary

    • My tactic was to sell most of the squad and raise money
    • Then get a load of Basque loans in
    • And secure a load of Bosmans


    League
    • Easy stuff in general
    • Group stage was a little more sticky as my loans had finished and squad was down to 15 outfield players so struggled a bit there
    • Promotion – 100 points


    Cup
    • We loved this! Got lucky with draws as well
    • Managed to beat Cadiz and then got dawn against Barcelona in Semi Final!
    • We superkeepered them 1st leg and NEARLY did the unthinkable 2nd leg but they came through
    • But we got a whopping £2.5m in gate receipts from the away game
    • Semi Finalist – 100 points


    League Goals
    • 83 in League
    • 12 in Promotion Group Stage
    • Total Goals – 95 points


    Season 1 Total Points 95+100+100 = 295 points

    Just finished the season 1.

    I finished confortably 1st in the league stage, but the group phase was a little stressful. I got the promotion with a difference of 1 point from the second place.
