    Challenge 16 - Les Rosbifs



    Arsenal Football Club.
    The Gunners.
    Fly Emirates.



    To many they are one of the best run clubs in modern football and play the game the way it should be played. Their free flowing youthful brand of football is bettered perhaps only by Barcelona (and their North London rivals) and it has seen them become many a neutrals favourite.

    Of course this is not everyone's opinion.

    Some might say they have never seen a more 'wretched hive of scum and villainy'.




    Whilst others might think they are just a bunch of gays.






    However one thing we might all be able to agree on is that despite the pretty football they perhaps at times appear nothing more than a bunch of shot shy surrender monkeys that are masquerading as an expensively assembled 'spot the Englishman' competition.




    Well my friends fear not because the winds of change are coming.

    You see for too long Mr Wenger has shaped the destiny at the Not Highbury stadium, but it seems his reluctance to spend money has caught up with him. The board has decided on a change of direction and that change of direction is you. Your instructions are clear:

    Football is Coming Home!

    You are to reshape your first XI around a spine of young English talent. You must buy 4 young bloods with which you will lay the foundations of a new dynasty. In keeping with your predecessors work they must be young and relatively unknown. These players will be thrown straight into the first team and become the axis of your side. The time has come to cast off the shackles and Cry God for Harry, England and St George!

    ------------------------------

    This is a one season challenge using ANY database/update. You will take charge of Arsenal and purchase 4 players. One goalkeeper, one central defender, one midfielder and one striker.

    These players must be:
    21 or under at the start of the game.
    Be uncapped at full level
    Be of English nationality (dual nationality is absolutely fine)


    Over the course of the season you will accumulate points in the following manner.

    Goalkeeper
    (Games played / Goals conceded) x 10 = points

    Central Defender
    Average tackles x 10 = points

    Midfielder
    1 point for every assist

    Striker
    1 point for every goal

    Additional points will be awarded for:-
    Man of the Match = 3 points
    Player/Young Player of the month = 10 points
    Player/Young Player of the year = 25 points


    No points will be awarded for winning trophies, this challenge is all about the new boys. Managers that can find the right balance in their tactic will be rewarded, however the board have stipulated that you must play a FLAT BACK 4.

    Points will count for every competitive match and a player must play at least 20 games during the season to have his score eligible.

    You will be required to provide a screenie of:
    each players end of season screen
    player of the month results
    player of the year results

    formation

    ***In addition to the screenies can you post which data update you used for the challenge***
    Good luck and 'the best of English' to you all.

    4.5m, second offer I made for him, no hassles.

    Steele was my 1st choice, got upto 13m and still couldn't get him.

    Springthorpe : 10 games, 9 goals allowed, 7.30 avg .

    The rest are gash .

    Glad I chose the March 2009 DB to play this one....

    Managed to sign uncapped 21 year old GK Joe Hart, David Edgar, some dude named Chris Cohen, and a 19 year old striker from Newcastle named Andy Carroll..... and I only had to pay 3.4M for him.... less than a tenth of his actual transfer fee

    Of course I'll probably do shit so don't expect a good score from me....

    So far, Springthorpe is quality(1 ypotm award), Dunk is rubbish, LuaLua is great but only has ONE feckin assist (7 goals though), Sears starting to shine 10 goals/25 games. 5 motm awards between them, not bad from 28 games.

    Oh, and I have Sears as my PK taker (obviously), 1 peno awarded to us all season so far, ONE!!!!!!!
