    Challenge 1 - Yes, Kaiser!

    The Challenges are back!

    As this is the 2nd time we're setting up the same challenge, I can't be bothered with the fancy layout, so this time you'll get just the basics.




    Rules
    You start as Hoffenheim manager. Your primary goal is to win as many Bundesliga titles as possible in 10 seasons. EVERY title has to be won with a DIFFERENT club. You can move from Hoffenheim only after you win the title and you MUST move clubs if you want to keep earning points. I recommend choosing German nationality at the beginning.

    Only September 2008 and December 2008 updates are allowed...

    Tactics
    Free choice. Centralised tactics and tactics with less than 3 defenders are frowned upon.

    Points

    Bundesliga
    Title - 200 pts
    Runners-up - 180 pts
    3rd Placed - 160 pts

    German Cup
    Winner - 150 pts
    Runners-up - 130 pts

    German League Cup
    Winner - 100 pts

    Individual titles
    Top League Goalscorer - 25 pts
    Top League Assist Maker - 25 pts

    Points Deduction
    5 pts for EVERY player signed including loans

    Screenshots required
    -transfers in
    - competition records- basically you need a screenie to prove everything that brought you points

    You can choose to create the game yourself, or download a pre-loaded save

    First contact with Hoffenheim squad.

    GK. Timo Hilldebrand. Four other keepers in squad. Only Haas with some potential. Two of the rest are available for transfer.

    Defenders. Ibertsberger and Beck as left and right back. We need some improvements in centre back. Nilsson will be starter, but there are some weakness in this position. Looking for options. I like playing with 3 centre-backs and 2 long wingers. At this time is a little risky.

    Midfielders. Bosnian Salihovic may be a good playmaker. Obasi (R) and Carlos Eduardo (LC) are best players of the squad. We need some strenght in midfield.

    Attackers. Ibisevic and Demba Ba are good options, but we need a top class up there. Wellington and Borghammer are in transfer list. We need money to buy new players.

    That must be right for the Sept update mate. I can't find the Dec 2008 update either so you may have to request that here if you want to use that http://www.champman0102.co.uk/showth...a-Thread/page9 although I wouldn't count on someone having it mate.

    Does anyone have the September 2008 or December 2008 updates?

    If not, can this be done on another update?

    Sept 2008 was pre-split so there was no SIM or ODB update.... and it is in the dl section

    maybe vjatceslav was using the wrong DB?

    I restarted this as I fucked up the previous save with tons of foreigner drunk transfers

    As from experience I didnt made lots of tramsfers this time. I got Denilson for free and Paraguayan AM LC Dos Santos for 1.4M

    Spoiler!


    I used the FurryoftheBeast as tactic, so thanks to the creator.

    I sold keepers Kirschbaum and Ramazan Özcan for a total 1.1M

    The MRL Weis went to M'gladbach for 2.8M as I wasn't going to use him.

    Also the veteran MR Keller went to St.Pauli for 60k.

    Season went very very well, apart from the cup tho, we got beaten by Rostock in the second round.

    At about 20 games in the league we were around 15 points ahead of our closest follower...but Bayern was 20 points ahead of us. They lost only 3 games all season and no draws untill 6 matches from the end of the season when they were crowned the plate.

    There is no way I can see to beat them in this first season. Damn you Pati!

    Bayern also got the cup.

    We finished 2nd:

    Spoiler!



    I couldnt ressist selling d L/C Compper to Bayern. 5.5M was too good to turnd down.

    RB Beck was awesome all season, 7.33 rating with 7 goals 5 assist and 2M.o.Ms. He was capped once too.

    Denilson did well too, 6 goals and 4 assist 7.21 avarage.

    Ba was the highest scorer with 15 goals followed by Salihovic's 12

    Carlos Eduardo, Ibisevic and Salihovic got 6 assists.

    The fans favorite of the season, Salihovic was the highest avarage with 7.65 followed by Ibibsevic's 7.38

    So we are going to Champions League with our amazing 4500 capacity stadium. At least 1620 of those can sit!

    I'll probably buy some full back subsitude, might buy a very very good DC if I can find one with reasonable price. Surely a DMC and probably a AMC with high assist ability.

    Hoffenheim didn't win any award whatsoever this season but we hold the highest scoring league game record:

    Spoiler!

    By the end of the year, the board announced 2000 more plastic chairs will be put next to the stadium.
    Score: 180 for league 2nd
    -10 for 2 transfers

    total: 170 points.

    Season 2:

    I got more involved in the market this year:

    Spoiler!


    Hamann is a youngster highly recomended by my new good scout. He played 6 (7) games and manage 2 goals and 6.46 av.

    Nocerino and Bentivoglio were the new DMC's

    Terzi a back-up DC

    More about Almeida and Makinwa later.

    Players out:

    Spoiler!

    The season started with the league cup, we went out in semi against HSV after a ton of penalties. Strike 1!

    We got out of the CL first group 3rd, went to the UEFA only to get hammered by Middlesbrough 3-6 on agg.

    Europe out and done only one more cup between league concentration.

    We reached the semi's of the German cup, loosing to last year relageted VFB Stuttgart.

    I tried to buy Mario Gomez, Serdar Tasci and Sami Khedira all year but didnt manage one. Altho HSV managed not one but 4 of their players:

    Spoiler!


    Hope they wont be able to finish all of those purchases, or at least a manager firing at some point

    The league went well and ok, keeping Bayern a point or 2 behind, untill 7 matches to the end of the league, where they got the lead and didnt give it back. (

    We did however manage to get a high scorer and a high assister.

    Spoiler!


    Final points:

    Runner up: 180
    Goalscorer: 25
    Assister: 25
    Transfers: -30

    Total: 200
    Season1: 170
