    Beginning squad




    We have less players this year



    One more signing during mid season, still comply with restrictions





    Also changed to this tactic

    Knocked out from UEFA Cup during quarter final (+200 for qualification +200 for quarter final)



    World Club Championships Semi final (+200)



    European Super Cup Winner (+500)



    24 players with minimum of 20 starts (+480)

    I found this is more challenging than expected (again). Need to rebuild squad again as key players are getting closer and closer to retirements



    Our DC was homesick and asked to be on transfer listed not very good locker atmosphere after that. I rejected his request and put him on transfer list by myself. If still no offer i might just have to let him go on free




    Many also finding it hard to adjust to English lifestyle. Hope they can be professional enough and live with it next season. I don't like unhappy squads

    Doing well mate - hard to take it to the next level and get CL or better


    I'm in season 1 and near Jan transfer window - We've moved from fighting relegation to move towards 14th but still not safe - won a few six pointers against the shite like Rotherham which helped

    Got loads of Jan and July signings but most awful quality.

    Think i've picked up a nice Spanish kid as a defender with high potetnial though. Struggling to get decent attackers at the mo

    The strategy is to get the countries as quick as I can and if they are shite just sign them on a 1-2 year deal or something

Heading in to the second season now and only need Croatia, Estonia, Malta and Slovenia to complete the set. I'm not convinced I've added enough quality to make a dent in the Prem though.
    Well I was right, I did not have enough quality to make any real headway in the Prem or either cups.

    Starting squad:







    Points scoring:

    Nothing for 13th in the league



    13 x 20 points for playing 20 games = 260 points

    General - I reckon Callum Wilson nationality will be changed in next update now he's played for England

    Faceless - nice work again - consistant. Gonalons has been a BEAST DM for my DTL team for many seasons. Kehrer should be a cracker for you and versatile

    We beated giant european teams in UEFA Cup but losed to Liverpool in Final (+1,000 +200 for qualification)

    Yes, I let him go in order to sign 2 new French wingers. I still have two GKs (not as good as Areola but they are ok). That was a right call, Imo. Both of new wingers scored more than both of our strikers.

    Finished my first scoring season last night and devastatingly finished 7th on the last day of the season being beaten into 6th by my own team - Leicester. I think that means I won't get into Europe now which is a kick in the nards.

    I'll post up my results tonight.

    Actually my second scoring season after the 260 I got already.

    20 x 20 points for playing 20 games = 400 points





    Nothing for the league again but 200 points foe UEFA Cup qualification



    Proof of nationalities:





    And nothing for any cups either.

    Total so far = 860 points

    EDIT: Forgot to add 200 points for UEFA Cup qualification.

    Got going with this beautifully put together challenge this week. And after a first season of ups and downs, some important January transfers really helped me to reach the playoffs.
    We scraped in on the final day, after Sheffield United had lost at Swansea, and beat Boro, then Norwich to clinch promotion!





    Using GFRay's NWW tactic, will post that up in the next update, along with squad for the start of season 2.

    First season in Championship and I've just dropped £10m on 2 players

    29 games gone and now dropped to 12th

    5 points from playoffs and we've just been quite unlucky in games since Jan window (and we now have some recruits in)

    Itís in the rules in the first post, you play six seasons, with seasons 2-6 valid for points.

    Way down oin about 12th/13th now after 2/3rd's of season 1 - promotion looking very unlikely

    formation switch seems to have helped but not having rub of the green at all

    WHAT A SEASON!!!

    Cup success all over the place but a last game of the season disappointment.

    Squad:









    24 x 20 points for playing 20 games = 480 points

    League:



    FA Cup:



    Winners = 200 points

    League Cup:



    Winners = 100 points

    UEFA Cup:



    Winners = 2000 points
    Qualification for Champions League = 500 points

    Season 3 total = 3280 points

    Total so far:

    Season 1 : 260
    Season 2 : 600
    Season 3 : 3280

    Total = 4140 points
