    World cup campaign

    After resigning, had to wait nearly two years (in game time) to get a job with an African national team. Took the first one that came up – Senegal

    WC qualifying and subsequent sacking: https://postimg.cc/image/f5ot9af3b/ (is this a well-known bug then, that you get sacked regardless of performance?)

    WC squad: https://postimg.cc/image/4vmea2k2v/ (a few players from qualifying were snapped up by European/South American clubs, also the one player not shown also plays for Ouakam)

    Heroic effort against Spain in the 2nd round: https://postimg.cc/image/gkqdy08gn/ 500 points

    Overall this was quite challenging, particularly finding good players based in Africa, as my scouts were pretty useless in this respect. I haven’t read through the forum, but are there any patches/updates that make the scouting better? Also, as previously mentioned, finding a good goalkeeper was a challenge, the best one I had was the one who was at the club when I started.

    1st season points: -30

    2nd season points: 705

    3rd season points: 1345

    4th season points: 830

    5th season points: 495

    6th season points: 1335

    WC points: 500

    Total points for challenge: 5180

    Plenty of money in the bank though so I may ask the board for more wages.
    I don't undestand... The previous club of Yaya Touré is Marseille, France. The rule doesn't say that you can only sign african players playing in Africa or african players on free with the previous club as african, or no history?

    After so many hours of scouting , i'm beginning this challenge in my usual 4-1-3-2 default tactic. I choose to sell a lot of players now, because I think I won't win something this year with my tactic, so i prefer to prepare my team for the second season. A question: somebody knows when the majority of the young players are promoted from the youth academy in Africa? January or July? Thanks!

    4 signings made all around February, two goalkeepers as I looked to improve on that position as I only had confidence in one of the three I already had and he was now struggling, a striker to hopefully score the goals that had somehow dried up from the attackers I had, and finally what I assume to be Eto'o's regen.

    League - Winners! Anderlecht ran us hard for the majority of the campaing but we managed to pull ahead in the final 8 games which included a massive 2-0 away win at Anderlecht.




    Cup - Winners! Woluwe-Zaventem, Antwerp, Standard Liege and Kortrijk were all overcome to set up a replay of last year's final. Just like last year as well Anderlecht keeper Davy Roef was sent off, this time after just 7 mins but they still gave us a game and we only found a winner in the final 5 mins.




    Super Cup - Winners! Genk were well beaten 2-0 and if not for their keeper it could have been at least double that!




    Champions League - 1st Group Stage 3rd Place. Drawn in a group with Barcelona, Chelsea and Olympiakos it was a shoot out between the first two and ourselves for the top two places, but unfortunately we couldn't quite make it




    Europa League - Winners! Once again we managed to lift the trophy beating Spartak Moscow (1-0), Celta (7-0), Schalke 04 (2-0) and Frankfurt (5-1) on aggregate along the way, and then in the final even with most of my signings ineligible and four first teamers out injured we turned on the style to beat Inter 3-0.




    World Club Championship - 3rd place. We finished 2nd in our group to River Plate on goal difference after we beat Guangzhou Evergrande 4-1 and JS Kabylie 4-1 while drawing 1-1 with River but it was good enough to see us through to the semis as the best 2nd place side. I then made a mistake My strongest side had played the three group games and so I clicked continue game when my next game came along, what I assume was my semi final against Vasco, but the Belgian FA had scheduled the Super Cup the day before our semi in Buenos Aires! As mentioned previously they won the cup earning me a massive 20 pts on the challenge, and with them knackered for the game the next day our second choice side lost 2-1 and we missed out on a minimum of 500 pts Vasco would lose the final to Man Utd 3-1 while we beat River 3-1 in the 3rd place playoff but no points on offer for that sadly.




    As I said last season I doubt I'll make anymore signings especially with this being my last season at the club, that will only change if we struggle like we did midway through this season. Eto'o's regen hasn't impressed so far with just 3 goals from 14(2) apps but he did manage 5 assists and hopefully when he settles more he'll have more of an impact, while the signing of Liberian striker William Jebor from Wydad Casablanca for £1m looks a steal as he managed 15 goals from 12(1) apps. Star of the season was midfielder Cheick Kouassi who managed a magnificent 23 goals in 51 games I wouldn't have had half the success without him as he was the only regular scorer until Jeber signed in February.

    Points this season

    Belgian Pro League - 200 pts
    Belgian Cup - 100 pts
    Belgian Super Cup - 20 pts
    Europa League - 500 pts
    4 signings made - (-)20 pts

    Total for season = 200 + 100 + 20 + 500 - 20 = 800 pts.

    Total points on challenge so far =
    800 pts + 1,620 pts = 2,420 pts.

    Maybe going out of Champions League did you a favour to get you those Europe League points!

    It has twice now to be fair, obviously the points are greater for CL but the teams are much tougher, and that 2nd Group stage can be an absolute bugger.
