    Challenge 18 - Save the Tractor Boys


    Ipswich Town Football Club (also known as Ipswich, The Blues, Town, or The Tractor Boys) are an English professional football team based in Ipswich, Suffolk. As of 2010, they play in the Football League Championship, having last appeared in the Premier League in 2001–02.

    Premier League season 01-02

    Ipswich Town who the previous season had qualified for the UEFA Cup and earned manager George Burley the Manager of the Year award, made a terrible start to the season, winning just one of their first 18 Premiership games. They then went on a strong run of form, winning seven out of eight games, which looked to have secured their Premiership survival. But they then suffered another setback which George Burley's men were unable to reverse. Their relegation was confirmed on the final day of the season by a 5–0 thrashing at Liverpool.

    Your challenge is to do what George Burley failed to do and save Ipswich Town from slipping down to Division 1 where they still remain to this day.

    Obviously being a challenge there are a number of restrictions in place:

    Challenge must be played on ODB v3.9.60
    Use non wib/wob formations that have either 4 or 5 defenders.
    You are not allowed to make any transfers.

    Points:

    Relagtion - -50 points per position(18th = -50, 19th = -100, 20th = -150)
    Surviving relegation - 150 points
    Each place above relegation zone - 10 points(If you finish 17th you get 160 points)
    Winning League Cup - 50 points
    Winning FA Cup - 50 points
    Winning UEFA Cup - 175 points
    Uefa Cup Semi Finals - 100 Points
    Uefa Cup Quarter Finals - 75
    Manager of month award - 10 points per month
    Manager of the year award - 50 points

    Proof Required:

    League Table
    Transfers In/Out
    First Team Squad
    Manager Of Month Screen
    Manager Of Year Screen
    Cup Results

    OK

    Surviving relegation - 150 points = 150 pts
    Each place above relegation zone - 10 points(If you finish 17th you get 160 points) = 10 pts
    Manager of month award - 10 points per month = 1 x 10 pts

    Total: 170 pts

    Table



    Transfers In/Out




    First Team




    Manager of the Month



    Again a pretty bad result but what the hey, it was an adventure all the same

    Good effort topaz .

    Played this one 3 or 4 times myself, really enjoyed it, think I almost won the EPL before fading late in 1 attempt. Might give it another crack in the future sometime.

    First challenge I've attempted, was good fun, if a little frustrating at times!

    Total 160 points. Reached league cup semis and last 16 in uefa. Finidi George was hopeless and resorted to Nabil Abidallah for much of the season.

    After a gap of over 3 years I've installed cm01/02 once again to try some of the challenges. I won't get much chance to play but hopefully I'll better than I did on the Hoffenheim challenge years ago. Starting with this one.....

    Thanks!
    Only about a third of the way through the season but it's been eventful. Won my first four league games to go top and win manager of the month, but my form has dropped off as injuries mount up and we play the big teams and lie in 7th now. Still in the UEFA after a couple of easy ties but Arsenal await in the League Cup.

    Not quite sure what on earth is going on as I normally come near the bottom of the table in the challenges, but I'm on the verge of something big....... (UEFA Cup final involved)

    Season over and a last 2 match collapse lost me 85, possibly 95 points. Lost the UEFA Cup final to Deportivo 1-0, followed by a 2-1 home defeat to Man Utd that won them the League and cost me 5th place and probably manager of the month, Sir Alex winning it instead.
    So 6th place and a UEFA Cup final was how I finished up, with 5th and 3rd round exits in the FA and League Cups giving me 370 plus one manager of the month award. This gives me 380 points and a good return to cm01/02 after years away. Screen shots will be posted in the results thread soon.

    Ok, so I've not played CM0102 for a year or two, so what better way to come back to it than a good challenge?

    Quite pleased with the season as a whole, but started running out of players in March time and found the defenders to be pretty rubbish:

    Finished 12th (150 + 60 pts)


    Reached UEFA Cup quarter finals - was unlucky to lose 2-0 in first leg and couldn't do quite enough in the second to get back into it


    Transfers ins/outs

    After very strong start(was in champ league places up to 10 round), there was drop in form with all the cups. But after loosing on pen in league cup, and from Liverpool after replay in FA, things got stable. And quarterfinal UEFA defeat against Inter returned the form from the start to finish may with 3 wins, only last was really hard away game to Blackburn, and win 5th place on goal diff from 4 team competition!!!, and one and only manager of the month award.
    So, for 5th place - 280 points, UEFA quarter - 75, 1 manager of the month - 10. All in all, not so bad 365 points

    I'm going to return for another go at the first ever challenge I did: saving my beloved Tractor Boys!

    Inspired by the mad bloke who loves the tiny country (and know his flags) I've tried to make a non-wib-wob tactic which works similar to my favoured Iodine, so we'll see how it goes!
