    Challenge 34 - Jamie Vardy's Pizza Party

    Challenge 34
    Jamie Vardy's Pizza Party




    March 21st 2015. Leicester City were at the BOTTOM of the Premier League table with 9 games to go; they were seven points from safety and it didn't look good for Nigel Pearson's side. March 21st 2016. Leicester City are at the TOP of the Premier League table with 7 games to go; they are also seven points clear of second place Tottenham and Claudio Ranieri's side are on the brink of doing what people thought was impossible. The 5000/1 outsiders are on the cusp of winning the Premier League. But what is it that has lead them to such a remarkable turnaround? Well the answer is simple; pizza. The almighty superfood that is pizza has been creditted to much of the success that has found its way to the King Power Stadium after Renieri promised his side pizza should they keep a clean sheet against Crystal Palace. Since that first clean sheet Leicester have kept a remarkable 9 clean sheets and the season still isn't over. It's also worth noting that Leicester have bucked the trend of modern football by employing a rigid 442 with fullbacks that don't bomb forward, central defenders that ask you to cross the ball and a hard working midfield that will stop at nothing to win the ball back.

    This challenge asks you to take over Leicester City and emulate Ranieri's success.

    Pizza Party Challenge.

    Great fun and quick too. Went right down to the wire. Spurs were 3 points clear of Leicester with 4 or 5 games left, Blew their chance. Chelsea had the title in their grasp but could only draw 0-0 away to Arsenal in last game to hand us the league after we saw off Norwich 0-1 away.

    Jesus, could you clarify if Cup games for Vardy count into final score too? Goals/Assists/MotM I mean.

    Goals, assists and MotM count across all competitions.

    Toppo, great effort. Didn't expect you to be able to do that after your first attempt. Your maths is a bit off though.

    (21 + 8 + 9 + 1000) - 26 = 1012

    Might give it another try as avoided cups to concentrate on league thinking cups were worthless

    Started like a steam train then had a bad run, then made changes to first XI and tried a diff tac, bad run continued

    Vardy did OK but my god Leicester don't half have miss some chances - not clinical at all were my team

    Cracking little challenge though!

    Cups: Out early doors
    League - 8th - should have been better - 300 points
    Vardy Goals - 21
    Vardy Asissts - 6
    Vardy MOM - 7

    Less goals against - 40

    Total - 294

    Not sure if the Vardy score makes much difference as if he actually stuck in 50 goals (plus any assists and MOM) for me but someone else didn't bother playing him and finished 1 place higherin the league then they would get a better score?

    Nice quick challenge. Hard to get a tactic to work though. Got a lot better in the last few month, i was in the relegation zone until November.

    Think if i did again i would finish higher up the table. Doubt i would win the League.

    League Cup: 3rd round
    FA Cup: 4th round
    League - 7th +400 points
    Vardy Goals + 27
    Vardy Asissts + 4
    Vardy MOM + 9

    Less goals against - 34

    Total = 406 pts

    Nice work mate - pretty similar to me.................but looks like you sorted a tactic out and rest of season ent well whilst I went the other way

    Think Toppo's worked on a few tactics hence he did a lot better!

    Still find it bonkers that squad isn't that great and they have done so well this year

    Can I also just say - HUTH - think he had about 5 red crds for me or something ridiculous

    It's there as a tiebreaker in case someone finishes in the same league position as you. The person who had the better tactic wins.

    Haven't done a challenge in a long long time but thought I would have a dip at this one.
    Nice little challenge. I enjoy the shorter ones.


    League!

    Spoiler!


    Was never really in the race for winning it but I was second with two games to go. Gutted to drop down to 4th actually.

    Tactic!

    Spoiler!


    Made the tactic to get the most out of Mahrez off the right wing and it worked. 16 goals and 9 assists at a 7.62 average.

    Vardy!

    Spoiler!


    Reasonable but not world beating. Didn't miss a minute of league action all season which I was surprised about. Expected at least one injury.

    Players In/Out!

    Spoiler!


    Total:
    Jamie Vardy = (18 Goals + 12 Assists + 3 MotM) = 33 points
    League (4th Place) = 700 points
    Goals Conceded (32) = -32

    701 pts

    I am very sad.... Won the league pretty easily, both cups, Vardy scored 44, had 5 assists and 14 MOM's. But then I realised I had misread a rule. With three games to go I reread the challenge and found that I was not allowed to sell players. I fail to see how this is relevant for the result, but I had indeed sold of a handfull of reserves. Now what? JUDGE!

    Vardy scored 44 and you won the treble with non wib wob 442?

    I'm on course to win the double but Vardy is nowhere near that goal tally for me.

    What's your tactic?

    Must be some major manipulation of a 442 if a striker can get 40+ goals.

    Jamie Vardy's Chat Shit Get Banged Pizza Party

    My season almost seemed to mirror Leicesters in real life. We started off absolutely smashing everybody by 3, 4 and 5 goals. We were unstoppable and the gap was only getting bigger by each week.

    Then the AFCON came, so Mahrez fucked off, Drinkwater got injured and we started limping. At one point i even thought we were going to bottle it!

    Luckily, 4 clean sheets in the last 4 games safely secured the title.

    Slightly regret the fact that my tactic was designed to share the load between the 2 strikers. Might have been better off just trying to get Vardy to score all the goals.
