    Season 10 – Guarani - (Campeonato Paulista)

    Signed these 2 fellas who used to play at the mighty Reds








    Played 433 then towards end switched to 4132

    Finished just outside of playoffs in Serie A but a good effort – especially as we were rebuilding squad for State Championship charge!

    State Champs was tough but always in/around playoff places so was always confident of qualifying

    SF – we really should have put them to bed more in 1st leg – 9 men

    But Bobby Firmino wins the game for us in 2nd leg

    Final was VERY tight! 1-1 in both games

    AND GOD BLESS THE HIGHER SEEDED TEAM RULE – WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAH!





    • Winners – 100 points as they were a Serie A club when I managed them this season
    • Goals – 43 League goals. 5 goals in playoffs. Total = 48 points
    • Total – 148 points
    • Total after 10 seasons – 175+347+244+275+272+156+257+256+123+148 = 2,173 points





    State Championships (after 10 seasons) – 8
    • S1 - Campeonato Carioca
    • S2 - Campeonato Central
    • S3 - Campeonato Nordeste
    • S4 - Campeonato Paranaense
    • S5 - Campeonato Norte
    • S6 - No Win
    • S7 - Campeonato Baiano
    • S8 – Campeonato Goiano
    • S9 – No Win
    • S10 – Campeonato Paulista

    Was delighted to get Liverpool lads - took me a while to get best position for Bobby as stamina was shite

    Was a chuffing tough division - glad to be done with that!

    Aye - new club in about November so pretty good timing - JOINVILLE - have a few quid to start off with as well

    On "paper" doesn't look like that tough a division - Chapocoence the toughest looking team I'd say. My team came 2nd last year so gives me some hope!

    Season 11 – Joinville - (Campeonato Caterinense)

    Perfect time to get job in November – but they did get relegated to Serie C when I got the job!

    Nice time to rebuild before Feb

    Few pennies in the bank

    Lovely little club – they had quite a few talented players already (LOADS of good full backs!)

    Got some belter loan signings

    4132 standard and my 2 front guys on

    League was easiest I have done so far in this challenge

    Chapocoense – I drew against them twice

    SF 1st leg – My keeper had a nightmare - - I was 4-1 down at one point and had to sub him off!

    Battered them SF 2nd leg

    Final – 1st leg was CRAZY – SIX goals v Chapo was stuff of dreams!

    Professional job in 2nd leg

    Job done and onto final season!


    • Winners – 300 points as they were a Serie C club when I managed them this season

    That for sure was the easiest championship we had

    One of the favourite teams I assembled as well - Quality XI and quality backups

    Now trying to sign them at new club

    REALLY enjoyed this challenge guys – VERY different in the Brazilian leagues and good to see!

    Think the loan market was a godsend here and made things a little easier

    Pretty happy with my effort given it was Non Wib Wob

    All the best to others that give this a whirl

  19. Nice work mate unlucky with that semi final

    I don’t think anyone would need wib wob for this challenge as there are lots of cheap good players in Brazil and as you said the loan system is nice

    Main challenge is the luck of landing the right jobs at the right time

    Would have been hard pushed to win that Championship - some good teams there - should have got to final though

    Cracker of a challenge

    When you start this challenge is there always a 50 day wait until the first game? I started with Flamengo and all the Copa games were in games played...am I doing this right?

    Your first tournament should be in 2020, those games shouldn't have been played?

    Do I need to alter the start year to 2020 then? Maybe that's where I have got it wrong.
