    I managed to get Sebastian Kehl on the day the scoring season started and he played in the first match. Just about to start 2nd season now. Doesnt 2.20 patch effect formation and tactics as mine seem to be less effective?

  2. I have no idea what 2.20 does ..... but I thought harder AI tactics were something separate

    Great challenge.

    After O’Brien retiring on me 17 days before the first scoring season,


    I managed to sign Sebastian Kehl on the same day as the season started and played the first game, the Germany international was a free transfer, he was 35 years old, 31 caps and 3 goals.



    Formation I used 4-1-3-2


    First scoring season 31 apps x 7.26 = 225.06



    Second scoring season 42 apps x 7.57 = 317.94


    Third scoring season 40 apps x 7.55 = 302


    He retired after 3 great seasons, only injured once for three weeks, nursed through most games near the end subbed sometimes before half time.


    Total = 845

    Nicely managed there - little 8 rating at HT and take him off to keep good rating but more importantly keeping him fresh and injury free - good work

    Nice work to get 3 good seasons out of him. That score will take some beating.

    By 38, he looks seriously shit !

    For this challenge we can use wib/wob right?
    And then standard, plain vanilla AI?
    Is that correct?
    Just checking, because that would make life a lot easier!

  7. Yup. Wib/Wob is allowed

    standard AI but feel free to use harder tactics if you want

    After winning both titles in my first season, I've decided that my Stevie G would be... Steven Caldwell!




    Lets hope for a long and injury-free time in the club!
    (I was tempted to get Valern, who is 40 at the moment... but thought it was too risky )

    Good to see a wide variety of Stevie-G's being used. Good stamina and never likely to run faster than a brisk walk. He might do well !

    Season 1

    Did you know that the mean temperature in Los Angeles in January is 13C (57F) and in August is 27C (82F), in contrast with 0C (32F) and 20-25C (68-77F) in Scotland?
    Did you know that the medium yearly rainfall in Los Angeles is 381mm, contrasting with 1018 mm and 147 rainy days in Scotland?
    Did you know that the worst recorded snowfall in Los Angeles is 5 cm in 1932?
    Did you know that one of the bests wines in USA is made in california?
    Did you know that there is beach in Los Angeles and you don't die from hipothermia if you swim in?









    Well, there is a person who knew all that: Steven Caldwell. Because he is in Los Angeles IN A FUCKING PERMANENT HOLIDAY.





    So 28x6.61= 185 points on my first season. On the team, got out in semifinals both in League and cup.

    Fingers crossed for the offseason!


    Edited: He retired after that season - here is my tactic:

    So i started this Challenge thinking.. "Yeah , Ill get a Goalie ...they play on forever"..Didn't quite pan out like that....

    Richard Wright managed halfway through my first point scoring season before deciding he was too old....All he has to do is stand between the sticks and even that's to tiring for him....
