    As i already finished the first part of challenge#17, can't help but feel obligate to finish part two.This might be the most difficult challenge i have taken so far.

    Season 1: 0 points

    Tactic with defensive mentality: To me, this is the reason why this challenge is so tough



    League: Finished 8th place in Serie A. Now i know that my main objective is not to conquer but to survive.



    Cup: UEFA Cup Winner (with very little eligible players due to heavily transfer). No points but this mean the board won't fire me yet.




    Transfer

    Spoiler!


    Beginning Squad: All players are 32 or older except 1995 squad.

    Spoiler!


    Only non-1995 squad with an age of 32 requires date of birth to prove that they are 32 at date of transfer.

    Spoiler!


    Some players already lost confidence in me.....

    Season 4 preview

    Transfer during off-season. I couldn't renew contract of Ronald De Boer as he wants new challenge. Finally lost him to Lazio. From now on Finidi shall take his role. Lots of transfer in to replace retired player. Key players in are Enrique, Batistuta and Lizarazu I have high expectation on them.





    Beginning Squad: Except Kluivert, Davids and Reiziger. The rest of the team are 33 or above.



    Alan Shearer is a beast, I just have to say it

    Season 5

    Many players retired during pre-season and we don't have much transfer funds.



    Beginning squad



    Not very bad season but last year was better. In league, we didn't stand a chance against the invincible Roma +0 points



    However, We won Italian Cup against Roma +50 points



    During champions league final, we were 2 goals ahead Barca in the first half. But in the second half they scored 3 goals in a row. +0 points



    37 Cleansheets +185 points

    Spoiler!


    9 players from 1995 +225 points

    Spoiler!


    Many of our players won second and third place for european awards but only Kluivert won the first place +10 points

    Spoiler!


    Total points this season 50 + 185 + 225 + 10 = 470 points

    During off season, lots of signings to replace retired players all of them on free as no transfer fund available.

    Good work mate, but I'm confused as you appear to have signed Ajax players from '95 under 32, but in the opening post it says only Milan players from their 95 squad are eligible to be bought if under 32.

    Sorry mate, under scoring it isn't very clear but in the paragraph above that it's explained. I'll update the scoring section now to show only Milan players.

    Found this challenge incredibly tough to begin with, tried so many defensive systems, first attempt I was failing miserably so started again, second attempt I again wasn't doing so well, this time I hadn't signed enough players for season 2 so again started again, but by the third attempt nailed it...



    The first season hung on thanks to a solid defence and Shevchenko's goals (why did I have to sell him?!) and second season I managed to win the Champions League, this was genuinely an incredible result as I didn't actually win a knockout match! Away goals and penalties all the way! I signed quite a few of the old crew, but only actually played those who would help the team:



    I did buy a lot of players, tried my best to get most on a free, then others cheaper than they should be by paying more once they hit 50 appearances for club and country (that rarely happened!)



    The eagle eyed amongst you will see I signed Demetrio Albertini on a free... I panicked when checking my squad ages and released him, only to realise he was allowed *facepalm*.

    Overall finishes are here:



    In the end I enjoyed the challenge much more than I thought I was going to at the start (particularly with Khan, Carlos, Thuram, Stam, Canavarro, Figo, Giggs, Zidane/Rivaldo, Davids, Vieri/Elber, Inzaghi as a team!)

    My most used formations (I often tweeked arrows, particularly during the game) were:

    Glad you enjoyed it. But the rule stated that you need to play with 442 defensive (two dmc). Still nice effort
