    Alphabet Game #5 - March 2019 Update

    Hold The Phone!

    Drop Everything!

    It's Back!


    The time has come for a FIFTH installment of the Alphabet Game!


    The process, if you choose to accept, is simple.
    You just have to win the top tier league title with every letter of the alphabet to complete the game. This does not have to be done in letter order, but any order you like.


    Specifications
    Requirements: Saturn's v7 patch along with the March 2019 Data Update.
    Start Year: 2018.
    Database: Maximum.
    Masked Attributes: Off.
    Selected Leagues: ALL league selected but don't include the lower leagues.

    Instructions - Start a new game using England 2018/19 as your start date. It just so happens that Almere City in the Netherlands are unmanaged. Where better to start than the letter A and the brilliantly named Mitsubishi Forklift Stadion?!?!

    Aim of the Game
    Tick off every letter of the alphabet by winning the league in the top tier of any country! National teams DO NOT count.
    You DO NOT have to stay at a club until you win something. For example, you could move on from Almere before winning the top flight but you will have to complete letter A at a later date.

    Join in and post your progress (with screenshots if possible) as you go along, let's have some fun

    Good Luck!!

    The following is a recorded list of members who have taken on this challenge. I'll keep this updated to see who is 'winning' so far:

    Alphabet Table

    5 - AJ (Almere City, Benfica, Colorado, Esbjerg, Schalke)
    5 - ebfatz (Almere City, Ballymena, Dundee, Hajduk, Linfield)
    3 - adnams (Almere City, OLS, St Mirren)


    I will try and keep this up to date as much as possible.

    Table correct to: 13th July 2019 to post #122

    Thought it would appeal to you.
    But are you going to break your update ban?!

    So I've made a start.
    Part way through season 1 at Almere and we are flying.
    Damon Mirani is playing like a man possessed at the back.

    Got former Stoke City man Oussama Assaidi coming in January after FC Twente accepted a swap counter offer. He should up the quality a bit.

    I've got to the turn of the year here. Almere have already topped the table in the 1st and 2nd Period.
    I have no idea what that means in terms of promotion. I'm pretty sure I'll finish top regardless so it takes the question away really.

    Those who win a period title are allowed to participate in the promotion playoffs. Champion goes up nonetheless without playoffs.

    Weird things happen. I get fourth place with Almere, win the play offs and get promoted. Then I get all sorts of (-null) messages and when the new season starts, I am still in the same division. Promotion got cancelled?? WTF?

    yes.

    Funny things keep happening at Almere City. Second season, after not getting promotion even though we won the play offs, we win the title and do get promoted. End of season, half of my selection complains about the club underperforming and they feel our league position should be better. WE ARE FIRST AND CHAMPIONS YOU DOLTS.

    Hard getting decent signings in, but I believe we'll manage a decent side to perform well in the Eredivisie. Hardly any decent jobs open up (in third season now) and those that do reject me as manager. This could take a while...

    First season done with Almere City. Won the Eerst Divisie by a very big margin and managed to beat Ajax in the KNVB Beker final to claim a spot in Europe for next season. This is a much needed reputation booster that will allow me to attract the players I need to win the Eredivisie next year.
