    Challenge 25 - A Greek Tragedy

    Challenge 25 - A Greek Tragedy








    The Greek economy is in crisis! The Nation's debt stands at a staggering 270 billion, while unemployment figures account for 28% of the adult population. In order to battle these problems a number of cost cutting measures have been placed right across the board by the Greek government and there is no escape for Football!


    Your task is to take over Olympiacos winners of 15 out of the last 17 Greek Super League titles and achieve success adhering to the following restrictions outlined below.



    RULES

    -
    you must use the recent Autumn 2013 Data Update

    - At the start of the 2nd season the clubs wage bill must not be more than 83k, and must not exceed that during the season.
    - At the start of the 3rd season the clubs wage bill must not be more than 66k, and must not exceed that during the season.
    - At the start of the 4th season the clubs wage bill must not be more than 53k, and must not exceed that during the season.
    - At the start of the 5th season the clubs wage bill must not be more than 48k, and must not exceed that during the season.
    - At the start of the 6th season the clubs wage bill must not be more than 43k, and must not exceed that during the season.

    - Only 20% (one fifth) of transfer money raised can be spent on players, including signing on fees. Signing on fees cannot be more than the transfer fee either.

    - no loans or free transfers are allowed.

    - you get no points for the first season, only the results in seasons 2-6 count.

    - no tactic restrictions, wib-wob or no wib-wob it's up to you.

    - by the time of the first competitive game of the season kicks-off you must have met the wage structure for that season.



    POINTS

    - this is all about winning, nothing for coming 2nd (or 3rd, or 4th...)

    - once again, no points for the first season

    Greek Super League - 200 pts
    Greek Cup - 100 pts
    Greek Super Cup - 50 pts
    UEFA Cup - 500 pts
    Champions League - 1,000 pts



    SCREENSHOTS

    - Club stats (at time of first competitive game of the season), Income figures, Players/Loans In and Out,
    Titles/Cups won (at the end of the season).



    Thanks must also go to Craig Forrest and The Eejit for helping with this getting off the ground.

    Any questions just ask otherwise best of luck!

    The challenge king is right up for this! to the Challenge team for a great idea!

    I assume you find the current wage figure from Finances & Info and then "Stats" menu? - so here..............

    If so - look like already under wage budget for a couple of years - just need to be careful who I sign!

    how do you ascertain how much you can spend (i.e - the 20% of what you raise in transfer funds) - is this by the Players out screen for that season?

    tough to decide which players to give new contracts to in order to keep wage bill down!

    With only 20% of transfer income being spent this is a proper wheeler dealer of a challenge - buy em young and cheap and sell for big bucks!

    Plenty of late calculations need to be done before end of season to make sure haven't spent more than 20%!

    Season 1
    =======
    Plenty of wheeling and dealing!

    Built up a squad with the likes of young "starlets" Suso, Mason Bennett, Zivkovic, whilst keeping hold of some of the "old guard" like Saviola

    League - won it easily

    Champ League - Out in 1st group stage then got dumped out of UEFA Cup in 4th round by Rubin

    Super Cup - lost 2-0 to POAK

    Greek Cup - out at Semi Final stage

    So - not a great start but no points available and I was focused on sorting squad out


    Loans
    ======
    Only had the 2 that were already there when game started. No other loans in. I did loan out 2 of my players as nobody answered the question on this yet

    Transfers
    ========
    Players Sold = 20,105,182

    20% of this which I can use as transfer kitty = 4,021,036

    Players bought (inc signing fees) = 3,754,346

    So - approx 266k under which is all good!

    Wage Bill
    =========
    Wage bill to start season 2 is 70k

    Under the 83k so again all is good.

    Let me know if I need to post anything else.


    Squad looking a bit thin so don't expect to do much on European front!

    Sorry guys busy weekend.

    Good work Red, what you've done is fine, and as you said no points for the first season so I wouldn't worry about. Down to 70k already, not much of a drop to meet next season's wage cap.

    I'm back up to 85k now though!

    Karagounis 37yr old has joined just for 1 year as experience and nicking 10k a week off me - need to get it trimmed by 20k though to qualify for next season!

    Six months in.
    Players out: 15.5 million
    Players in: 1.2 million
    Signing-on fees: 347k
    = 9,67 %

    Current wage bill (squad): 65k/w

    I have no idea how I'm going to cut further 20k off this budget and still field a decent team! The league is going smoothly this year (13 games, 13 wins so far), but the Champions League not so much. Finished 3rd in a tough group with Arsenal, Ajax and Bayern. My UEFA cup campaign started well though; 6-0 over Feyenoord.

    Enjoying this!

    Question: I sold players for 15 million in the first season. Can I use some of that money to buy players in season 2?

    Starting this also, would like it if you could explain the 20% of the transfers also. It is just whatever u sell that season 20% of that money? and then next season if u dont sell anything cant buy anything either?

    So you've gone above the limit of 83k?

    The transfer restriction is for the whole of the challenge, so say you sold 15m of players in season 1, and no one in season 2 and 3, for them 3 seasons you can spend a maximum of 3m (including signing on fees).
