    Yeah, they all performed well. But everybody was left out in the shadow by the beast himself Patrick Vieira. What a crackin player! Anyways, fun challenge. Finished second in the league behind an impossible Man van Nistelrooy United team. He also sent me out of the CL in the semis!

    A request to the challenge team: More non wib-wob 1 seasons challenges? I love one season challenges!

    good scores all round from the buys

    might be easier for you to use hotlink for forum from post image as well instead of the direct links?

    My first attempt at a challenge since it used any DB and I'd just downloaded the Oct 2016 so wanted to play it, also my first ever season with Arsenal, didn't realise I could get attached to a club!

    Anyway, I think I have SS of everything I need here: http://smg.photobucket.com/user/RTMF...Challenge%2016

    I actually failed miserably first time and got to the first transfer window having only purchased a defender, so had to start again, and therefore had better knowledge of who might join! (Ward-Prowse bid worth £49million was rejected - I'm sure the board wouldn't have allowed it bus still wanted to see if there was a price they'd accept!) Surprised at how well the youngsters did, carried Arsenal to the title and League Cup... were knocked out of the Champions League in the Quarters by the mighty Leicester City and lost the FA Cup final to United.

    Anyway Purchased:

    GK Christian Walton from Luton:
    Games Played: 44
    Goals Conceded: 36
    MoM: 0
    P/YPotM: 0
    YPotY: 3rd
    Points (44*10/36) = 12.2

    DC: Dominic Iofra from Wolves
    Average Tackles: 2.9
    MoM: 0
    P/YPotM: 0
    YPotY: 2nd
    Points: (2.9 * 10) = 29

    MC: Will Hughes from Derby
    Assists: 15
    MoM: 4
    P/YPotM: 0
    YPotY: 1st!
    Points: (15 + (4*3) + 25) = 52

    SC: Zach Clough from Bolton (James Wilson would not even talk to me, bloody loyalty!), started the season on absolute fire, PotM 3 of the first 4 months, faded after but kept chipping in with goals:
    Goals: 47
    MoM: 16
    P/YPotM: 3
    PotY: 1st!
    Point: (47 + (16*3) + (3*10) + 25) = 150

    Total: 243.2

    Congratulations on completing your first challenge mate, shame Clough slowed down a bit in the second half of the season as it would have made a more than decent score even better!

    Don't forget to post a link to your screenies in the results thread otherwise your score won't be counted for the Challenge Tables or KOTM.

    Hope to see you trying your hand at some more challenges mate

    I'm trying it, with october 2016 Database!!!

    A few questions:
    Uncapped at full level means that we can't buy english U-21 level, I'm ok?
    A striker is a player who plays as a striker (AM/FC for example) or a strict stricker (SC)?
    Thanks!

    What a realistic challenge! Wenger will go, and I'm french! But really this Arsenal from october 2016 sucks comparing it to 2010...

    I have an answer for my second question above, many of us used for this challenge a FRC as SC, so no problem for a AM/FC if he plays only as a striker!!!
    It's only my opinion!!!

    Boring Arsenal, Boring Challenge...
    2 conclusions for this challenge:
    1) I undertand better why Arsene Wenger is still the Manager of arsenal. Finishing 9th this challenge, the board is happy, out of the cups in 3rd and 4th round, 1/4 final Champions League!
    2) I understand better the bad results of this year... Arsenal is no longer a world class club!!!

    As you see, if I'd be the Board, I would sack myself!!!
    My score is not so bad, but I'm not satisfied...

    GK Christian Walton (Brighton): 21/7 * 10= 30pts

    I'm going to try a second time, but with another database, because Olivier Giroud is not Thierry Henry!!!

    Fantastic challenge with the Original Database (2001-2002)!!!
    Really enjoy it!

    Nothing to compare...
    It was a time when Chelsea (Ranieri was the manager) and Man.City were so weak,
    a time when you were kicked from semi-final of Champions League with a goal of Antonio Conte (Juventus).
    A time when Xhaka was Pat Viera and O.Giroud was Thierry Henry.
    A time when The Froggies were World Champions and European Champions...
    Don't forget it! And a message to Arsene...Please go on Holidays!!!​

    Used ODB .68

    Overall fun challenge with sub-decent performance, should have went for a different tactic and maybe a different DB.

    Total points : 112

    Goalkeeper

    (Games played / Goals conceded) 61/63 X 10 = 9,68


    Central Defender

    Average tackles 2,7X10 = 27 points


    Midfielder

    13 Assists = 13 points
    MoM X 5 = 15 points


    Striker

    34 goals = 34 points
    MoM X 1 = 3 points
    Young player of the month = 10 points


    Transfers :


    GK - Paul Smith


    DF - Chris Riggott


    MF - Richie Wellens


    FW - Dean Ashton


    YPOTM


    Tactic

    Took on the challenge with the original .68 DB. Arsenal are a beast of a team, but with my non wibwobbing and insistence on 2 strikers as a rule, I wasn't too successful!


    So I signed these 4 guys, and went with this tactic. Didn't get King in time for the League cup run which was annoying, he was cup tied. Bowers was as well, not such a big issue though.


    Getting Man United in the FA Cup third round away from home was a kick in the balls. King was good, Langley was surprisingly good, Bowers not so good, and Myhill was decent, but at 19, maybe should have gone for someone older in goals.






    Points-

    Myhill - 55 games / 42 goals = 1.3*10 = 13points
    Bowers - Tackles/gm = 1.8/10 = 18points
    Langley - 17 assists + 3*5mom = 32 points
    Marlon King - 31 goals = 3*4mom = 43 points

    total = 106 points

    Can't believe King or Langley never won YPOTM. Absolutely ridiculous. King came third in European Striker of the year and European player of the year. He outscored Henry playing alongside him. Games rigged.

    Gave my first challenge a go, thought time someone tried this on the March 2019 database. Results below:

    Goalkeeper - Woodman - Games/Conceded ((20/11)*10) = 18.2 points
    Defender - Barrett - Tackles (4.5*10) = 45 points
    Midfielder - Rice - 7 Assists, 6 MOM = 25 points
    Forward - Sancho - 46 Goals, 12 MOM = 82 points
    Young Player of Month Awards - 70 Points
    Young Player of Year Award = 25 points
    Total Points = 265.2

    Started this on Luessenhoff's modified ODB... hope that's ok, but no problem if you don't end up accepting my score - not wib-wobbing so not expecting to trouble the top of the leaderboard, just doing it for my own entertainment really!

    OP does state that any database can be used so you might be ok. I don't know the specifics of the mods on it so I'll have a word with the other mods and see what we all think,

    We're all happy with that DB Riise so you'll score once completed.

    Ace, thanks. Obviously couldn’t have a horribly modified DB where I made all my players amazing, but wanted to check whether it was ‘official’ DBs only

    DB: Luessenhoff's modified ODB - 3.9.60

    GK: Mark Goodlad, Port Vale, £825k - 13.478 points
    Spoiler!



    DC: Zatyiah Knight, Fulham, £4.9m - 30 points (inc. 1 MoM)
    Spoiler!



    DMC: Sean Davis, Fulham, £8m 27 points (inc. 5 MoM)
    Spoiler!



    SC: Shola Ameobi, Newcastle, £2.5m 43 points (inc. 4 MoM)
    Spoiler!



    Ameobi was YPotM twice... so 20 points
    Spoiler!



    And here's how they lined up! I haven't played with a back four for about 15 years, but given how much this formation got out of the lone striker, I might have to start using it in other saves!
    Spoiler!



    Ameobi was third in YPotY and Goodlad made the TotY! But no points for them.

    So I make that 133.478 points (round how you like, wasn't sure looking at the leaderboard)

    Forgot how good Arsenal are on ODB... accidentally won the Prem & FA Cup lost the League Cup Final to Chelsea and Roma saw us off in the Champions League Quarters.
