    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.

    Typical from the board to take your transfer funds to upgrade the stadium!

    Hard luck in the final mate, like myself and Kingsley it looks like Celta Vigo are a bogey team for you as well

    Ah Barca pip you on the last day to 2nd spot, and a bitch of a CL 2nd Group stage put paid to your European hopes as well.

    Fingers crossed you can improve the squad in the summer and the board don't take more money off you for the stadium or training facilities.

    • Another 4,000 seats added to the stadium for the cost of £7m!
