    Starting this one today. My second official challenge after the Barbers of Sevilla was a failure. Going to enjoy this one I think.

    Season 1 over and done with. Won the league, but lost out in the cup and Uefa Cup both in quarter finals. Only lost 1 game in the league, so the board are pretty happy.

    Managed to sell everyone so got plenty money in. Only John Niewenburg (sp) I had to release.

    Season 2 will start with the inclusion of Bogarde and Reizeger to join Ronald de Boer as the 1995 group.

    Young Signings:Yakubu Aiyegbeni, Mark Kerr, Patrik Andersson(GK), Fredrik Risp and Joselito Vaca. More to come over the summer too probably

    Notable moves are Finidi to Arsenal, Davids to Milan, Overmars to Celtic. Will keep my eye on them!

    Also Fred Grim is leaving, I guessed since he was in my original squad he didn't count for points. Plus I don't want to play him 25 games...

    Season 2 done, and it ended in disappointment despite winning the title. PSV wouldn't go away, and never did really. I got a 2-2 drew in Eindhoven in gw33 to stay 3 points clear going in to our last match. They were excellent all year, luckily I was slightly better.
    Lost out in Phase 2 of Champions League to Juventus and Dortmund. Buffon got MoM against me home and away so I lost both games and never recovered.
    Annoyingly lost the Dutch Cup final on penalties. Again the goalkeeper getting Mom against me, a common theme.
    Anyway. Points for the season...

    Dutch Title = 100 points
    3 * 95 squad 25 appearances (Bogarde, Reizeger, R. De Boer) = 75points
    Total = 175 points







    Next season the team will be better. All my starting 11 still around, will try and add a 95 player over the summer. Van der Sar most likely.
    Jermain Defoe should prove to be a good signing, and Joselito Vaca was outstanding on his first season scoring 27 goals in 28 starts. He has 3more years before he is too old. Youssouf Hersi proved to be a great find this season, and Johnny Heitinga looks like he will become my captain and centre half next season. I wish I didn't have to play Bogarde so much! He was injured a fair but so had to play him when fit.
    Kanu moved to Inter so will be tough to get him unless he doesn't play next season.

    Enjoying the challenge! Hopefully PSV don't push me so hard next year and I can rest in some league games.
    And also, Ronaldo de Boer got a 10 game ban for smashing someone with a left hook, so he will miss the start of next season.

    Finished the challenge. It wasn't pretty! It definitely wasnt successful.
    Will count up my score and see how it went.
    Season 4 the third last season when PSV won the Champions League, League, Cup treble, a particular low!

    So I'm just starting the 2nd season of this (wont finish for a while as playing this at my folks for a few days, playing Roman General one at home), to clarify, the match day squad for 1995 is all 16 players that were named right? (I saw a post earlier that only mentioned the 13 that were on the pitch).

    Also the scoring system doesn't add points for Jari Litmanen as he starts in the squad, however my version (.68 I believe) he was already a Liverpool player and Fred Grim was in the squad so do Fred's point count and Jari's not? (i.e. did I just waste money signing him!)

    Are you sure that you are using original database?

    I already started this challenge.

    As for your questions, I found earlier posts mentioned that

    1995 squad mean every players including subs

    Litmanen's point should be included (At first Kiki did not. Later AMC asked him to include points from Litmanen)

    Thanks, I started with the only ODB I have, I don't remember ever playing the original database with Jari not a Liverpool player! Anyway, will be a while before I can pick this one back up as home again and slogging through the Italian General, that might take me til next year!

    Actually i got him during the first season He was the second player in 1995 squad i managed to sign. First one was Ronald De Boer. I added 1995 players in my shortlist at the beginning of the first season and check my shortlist frequently. In this way, whenever they are unhappy or interested in my team, i won't miss a chance to get them.



    Same reason as at the beginning of season2 when van der Sar interested in my team, I didn't hesitate to let Ibrahimovic and Chivu go to get enough money.
