    Well done on the double mate, and also getting through the first group stage of the Champions League especially managing to beat Real Madrid! Hard luck on the 2nd Group stage though, hopefully that run has done wonders for your finances now though!

    Next to Aniefiok I've got a new midfielder for this season. I believe his name is Salem (didn't play for the whole weekend), will look it up tonight. But he's perfect for this challenge. My current season I'm still fighting for the championship and the cup. Again was unsuccesfull in reaching the knockout fase for the CL, and so pissed with that one that I couldn't play anymore Will give a bit more feedback tonight.

    Well done Redknapp69 with the double. AMC massive performance, wow really impressive to win that cup!

    05-03-2019 - Champions League Phase 2 Group B

    1. Chelsea 6 points (+2)
    2. Ajax 6 points (-2)
    3. Waasland Beveren 5 points (0)
    4. Napoli 5 points (0)

    I had to play against Ajax (away). At home I've beat them, and I had a really good feeling about going to Amsterdam. My team was fit and ready to perform. But this kind of matches, it's why they calling them Lucky Ajax I believe.



    The player with the red card, is my new signing, where I am (most of the time) absolutly thrilled about.

    I believe it was Al Ahly, but he's not from the first year in the game. But I think he's a bit to old for a regen?

    Ow now it makes me nervous, because when it's really Al Ahly, I didn't look good at which continent is was.
    But probably I made a mistake in the club, or CM does see al Ahly as a major Africa club?

    I don't know what you mean mate?

    There's Al Ahly in Egypt and I think there maybe one in Saudi Arabia as well, just go on his previous club and club info and it'll tell you what continent the club is from.

    Well that could be the good news. I'm searching for my new players where I open all the clubs from the continent Africa (Major Clubs and Other clubs), also I look at the under 21 teams for the national teams.

    I believe it was Al Ahly, and I know only Al Ahly in Saudi Arabia. Because Saudi isn't in Africa that would mean I have a squad that would not pass the terms of this challenge. Now that you say there is also an Al Ahly in Egypt, I think that would be the club where he's from. So I do have a squad that is OK for this challenge. Didn't know the existing of two Al Ahly's.

    To be fair I knew of the one in Egypt not Saudi

    That's why I said early on the best way to make sure you don't sign anyone ineligible is to filter based by region and Africa.

    I've already started with season 2019/2020. Just this season and the next to reach the CL knock-out stage, after winning everything I want to win (and what realistic*), that's my goal to reach.

    New season was a hard start, with a lot of injuries from my starting eleven I've lost two games in a row. The board update was already not happy with that losing streak. With some luck in the following matches and my best players available again, I haven't lost in the competition. Again I'm back in the position where my team belongs, top of the league. In the CL I had a poule with Atletico / Man. Utd / Basel and finished second. Now in a poule with Man City / Real Madrid / Wolfsburg. Again a hard poule, but still hoping to get the job done.

    Cup in the sixth round an away game against Club Brugge. Couldn't get a worse draw and lost the match with a typical Championship Manager match. With a late equalizer I thought I get a replay, but already the text was just Club Brugge blue and they scored a 2-1 winner. Maybe the necessary rest for my team to get to bigger achievements later in the season???

    Think I've to sell some unhappy players, some of the first team a complaining about the lack of harmony. Never had that, but didn't want to sell the unhappy. Because the Africa Cup is coming again and most of the players playing in Africa aren't better.


    *AMC showed that winning the EL is possible and maybe it's better to go for that achievement because of the poins for that cup. But always want to win the highest price, I believe everybody does

    Doing well so far mate - Cup was a blow and looks like a real tough CL group

    Sounds like League is going well though

    Not sure about unhappy players though - that doesn't sound well

    I've 3 players the board want me to get rid of, one is out of contract now so he'll be going but the other two won't be going anywhere for now.

    Hopefully this year I manage to get to the 2nd Group Stage, but from a points perspective the Europa League is probably a better bet as I can't see us making the semis of the CL.

    To take a screenshot just press alt & print screen then copy the image into paint and save it, then like Red says upload it to an image site, tiny pic, photobucket, postimage etc and then copy across the link.

    after finishing my first season second in the league i got rid of the remaining player (losing lots of cash by releasing them on a free...) and signed a bunch of african players (until now 31 at the end of season 3). I play my usual 3-1-4-1-1 formation

    starting the second season with playing the

    Super Cup

    Disappointing penalty performance...



    League

    a tight race until the end but we managed to win the league with a 4 point margin



    Champions League

    after qualifiying for the group stage Madrid and Arsenal turned out to be too good to overcome although we won our home game against arsenal. but they showed us that we still have a lot to learn at their grounds.



    i think this is the most humiliating loss i ever experienced since i play CM LOL



    UEFA Cup

    fourth round exit



    Cup

    tight cup games 0-0 and a late 0-1 loss in the replay game





    Score

    31 players signed -155
    SuperCup Runner Up 20
    League Winner 200
    Cup Runner Up 50

    Score 115

    League

    dominated the league this season. just one loss 89 points.

    Champions League

    managed to win the group in stage one on goal difference. all teams with 9 points

    10-0 with four red cards, unbelievable. Save that screenshot

    Well done with your league performance, really high scoring in your third season. Also the first (I believe) manager who manage to reach to the quarter finals in CL. I also doubt if its possible to win the CL with this challenge, because I think it's already a big achievement to reach this stage of that competition. Good luck in the next seasons.

    Did I already mention that I really hate that *(&*( Africa Cup. Again 11 players gone for that championship, my total defence gone for important competition and CL matches.
    Don't know if it was the main reason, but knocked out of the CL and in the league anything is possible again, because the lead of several points (8) is back to a one point lead. Terrible, in the end I'm glad this was my last year with an African Cup in it. A little bit Africa 'tired', if you want to win the CL but can't find the eleven players to really compete, argh frustrating.

    Ok so first season finished second in the league and signed 18 players, left myself with a heafty 7 million budget for transfers going into the second season. Far too much really I think the most I have spent on a player so far is around 200k

    Second Season

    Signed a further 10 players to take the total number of players in to 28

    Super Cup

    Dont know what you have to do to qualify but I seemingly didnt so no points in the second season for that.

    League

    Pretty much walked it, no real challenges, won by 20 points

    screen shot
    uploading pictures

    Belgium Cup


    Won that

    photo hosting

    Champions League

    Had a bit of a nightmare, includingn a 5-1 hammering at home to Juve, thought id scrape 3rd but Sporting scraped a draw against Arsenal so I finished bottom.

    image upload no size limit

    Read a lot in this thread and signed a load of players that people recommended. Have a squad of 28 players with 1 more coming in next season. I guess I need a top top keeper but thats about it. Cant see me ever winning the Champions League.

    Couple of my stars

    Daka was signed for 20k and hes banged them in. Worth nearly 2 million now.

    League Win - 200
    Belgium Cup Win - 100

    Players signed - 28 (-140)

    TOTAL POINTS - 160
