    Challenge 32 - The Pension Pot (AKA the Stevie G challenge)

    Challenge 32 - The Pension Pot (AKA the Stevie G challenge)


    Another challenge idea provided by The Eejit

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to take control of LA Galaxy and to sign a European player with at least 1 international cap for a European nation and who is 35 years old or over.

    This is a multi-season challenge. Season 1 is a throw-away season…. You get no points but you can use it to make some cash and shape your squad the way you want…. Season 2 is where the fun begins….. you MUST sign your Stevie G prior to the first competitive league game in season 2. That player must be a European with at least 1 cap for a European nation and MUST be 35 years of age or over when you sign him. He is the only player that will generate points for you during this challenge so make your purchase wisely.

    Your very own Stevie G will continue to score points for you until he either retires or leaves LA.

    Database:

    October 2014

    Tactic restrictions:

    Any tactic you want as long as it has a minimum of 3 at the back and 2 wide players somewhere. Wib/wob is allowed.

    Transfers/Loans:

    Sure, go nuts. Only your Stevie G gets you points though

    Points:

    Stevie G will earn you points every season in the following way:

    Average rating x total number of appearances

    Add them up each season and the total at the end is your score

    Screenshots are required to prove any of your points plus a screenshot of your tactic.

    Enjoy

    You can choose to create the game yourself, or download a pre-loaded save

    Isnt retiring a bit random? Wouldnt it be better to get the average of all the seasons?

    Yup... retiring is random.... adds to the fun... could be a 2 season challenge, could be an 8 season challenge.... you just never know

    and Derm, if your player slips and costs his team the league, you should lose points

    The randomness is one of the fun ingredients. There is no way to know when you sign them, and it give you the chance to come back and try again with another Stevie-G

    First season starts in 2015, is it 2016 season that counts?
    If so can i buy a over 35 player for the first season and keep him for second one?

    Q - Robbie Keane is already there and will be 35+ by season 2 - can he be used or does someone NEW need to be signed?

    New player must be signed.

    Player must be signed before the first competitive game of season 2

    If you sign him before season 1 is over, he has to still be 35 or over and gets you zero points until season 2

    The way I read it you can definitely pay for a player.

    My Stevie G was FRANK LAMPARD!



    He performed superbly in the season bringing major success to LA Galaxy and the press went in overdrive with praise for us.............



    We even managed to sign some world class players...............



    Things were going swimmingly for Frank and he even accept a new 5 year deal at the ripe old age of 38



    But then DISASTER - just 2 days later the fucker retired and took the 5 year contract sign on fee with him





    So - just the 1 season I had with my over 35 - a fine season at that though




    Total points = 239.1


    When I offered him a new contract I removed the "Manager release" clause - I wonder if that had anything to do with him retiring (thinking he might go for a manager job) or if it's just all random?

    Also - he did just have a 4 month injury to rule out end of season - maybe he didn't recover from it


    Great fun doing this challenge - a shame as well as I built up a pimpin' team with the like of .....................

    Emil Krafth
    Marcelo
    Jorginho James
    Julian Green
    Freddy Adu



    So - gutted not to keep playing with them but to be fair I had won everything available over the past 2 seasons

    I was tempted to take on Paul Robinson (GK) but I thought Frank would do at least 2-3 years whilst his att's were still great

    May come back to this one again and try a different tactic - helluva lot of games they play though!

    Cheers challenge team!

    Nice work, Red!

    I'm soon done with season 1. Steamrolling through both the league and cup, and I will be disappointed if I don't win them both. I have my eyes on a certain 35-year old, but he recently signed a new contract so I am not sure if I will actually get him. Maybe I need to look elsewhere.
