  1. Der Bomber: The Gerd Müller Challenge I hope that @leecutlerwill be ok for me to repost and update this challenge from FMM2015. Born in Nördlingen, Germany, Müller began his football career at the TSV 1861 Nördlingen. He went on to score 51 goals in just 31 appearances, Müller then joined FC Bayern Munich in 1964 where he teamed up with future stars Franz Beckenbauer and Sepp Maier. The club, which would go on to become the most successful German club in history was then still in the Regionalliga Süd (Regional League South), which was one level below the Bundesliga at the time. After one season, Bayern Munich advanced to the Bundesliga and started a long string of successes. With his club, Müller amassed titles during the 60s and 70s: He won the German Championship four times, the DFB-Pokal four times, the European Champions' Cup three times, the Intercontinental Cup once, and the European Cup Winners' Cup once. A supremely opportunistic goal-scorer, he also became German top scorer seven times and European top scorer twice. Müller scored 365 goals in 427 Bundesliga matches for Bayern Munich, almost 100 goals more than the second most successful Bundesliga scorer, Klaus Fischer. He holds the single-season Bundesliga record with 40 goals in season 1971–72, a record that is particularly impressive because unlike other top-flight national leagues, the Bundesliga only has 18 teams and therefore only 34 games per season. Müller averaged a goal per game or better in seven of his 14 seasons. He scored 68 goals in 62 German international games. He held the record for most goals scored in a calendar year, striking 85 goals in 1972, until his total was surpassed 40 years later by Lionel Messi. Can you find the next Müller? Challenge Rules 1. Load up Germany and any other countries and take charge of any Bundesliga side (Bayern if you want to make it authentic) 2. You must sign a German striker from any league below the Bundesliga. 3. You have a maximum of Fourteen seasons in which to replicate Müller's achievements. 4. You must win at least 4 League Titles, 4 German Cups, 3 Champions League, 1 FIFA World Club Cup, Top Bundesliga Scorer in at least 7 seasons, beat his record of 398 club goals and beat the tally of 40 League goals in one season. 5. Own formations only 6. No unlockables, edited databases, or use of any of the editors 7. Evidence is required, I'd suggest posting a career thread for us to follow. 8. No cheating - Restarting to avoid injuries counts as cheating!! Leaderboard
  2. The Gunnar Nordahl Challenge When Swedish footballers are brought up today, most people would think of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, the most well-known Swedish player in modern history. Nordahl, however, who preceded Ibrahimovic by over half a century, is arguably the greatest goal-scorer Sweden has ever seen. In four stunning seasons with Norrkoping, Nordahl made history, leading his club to the title in every season while also winning the Golden Boot for the league all four times. The Swede finished his stint at the club with 87 goals in 85 games, seven of those coming in Norrkoping’s 11-1 annihilation of Djurgardens. Nordahl’s incredible play was hardly unnoticed, and in 1949 Italy’s AC Milan bought one of the best players in Europe. Scoring on his Rossoneri debut to win 3-2 against Pro Patria, Nordahl’s 16 goals in 15 games with the club in half a season was such a good record that the club renewed his contract just six months into his Milan career. In Nordahl’s first full season with Milan, the Swede broke the post-war goal scoring record for a single season in Serie A, netting an astonishing 35 goals, 11 of which were volleys. While no slouch with his head, Nordahl became well-known for his stealthy movement and simple finishes, driving his club to new heights. In fact, Nordahl had such a strong influence on Milan that the Rossoneri went out and bought two of his former Swedish teammates, Nils Liedholm and Gunnar Gren, forming the feared Gre-No-Li attacking trio that would terrorize Serie A defences in the coming years. It was with his country mates at Milan where Nordahl thrived, claiming the Italian championship in 1951 and 1955 while becoming the Capocannoniere in all but the 1951/52 campaign during that period. The striker hit goal after goal assisted by his fellow Swedes, forming a “telepathic understanding, which we developed through years of training together,” as he put it himself. In 1956, after 257 appearances and an incredible 210 goals for Milan, Nordahl left to join Roma in the twilight of his career. He would play for two more seasons, netting 15 times in 34 games despite his age, and became a player-coach in a third campaign with the club. Can you match these incredible goal scoring feats in the one of the toughest leagues to play in? Challenge Rules 1. Load up Italy and any other countries and take charge of any Serie A side. 2. You must sign a Scandiwegian (Norway/Sweden/Denmark) striker. 3. You have eight seasons in which to replicate Gunnar’s achievements. 4. You must win at least 2 League Titles, League Top Scorer in at least 5 seasons, beat his total of 210 league goals and his average of 0.77 goals per match. 5. Own formations only 6. No unlockables, edited databases, or use of any of the editors 7. Evidence is required, I'd suggest posting a career thread for us to follow. 8. No cheating - Restarting to avoid injuries counts as cheating!! Leaderboard
  3. So after seeing @Real_Random attempt this I also fancied a go so I loaded my chosen leagues Australia, Italy, France and Portugal So starting in Australia I needed a team and with absouluty no knowlenge of the teams, players etc I decided that since a close friend of mine had moved to Melbourne a few years back it's seemed only right to go with them (then realised there are two teams in Melbourne) so I took a quick gander at the squads before settling on.... Melbourne City and after a quick check on the squad I found a young Australian Striker to get me my 100 goals This young buck is Braedyn Crowley and his stats are nothing to write home about but 15 shooting and decisions means he's my only real option for the job (although his stamina is something to be concerned about so i stuck him on Fitness training straight away) So our team and striker are chosen lets crack on with seasons 1-3 Season 1 So with next to no money available I went straight to the free agents market to try and find some players who could give the squad a boost Only three signings and all free agents: Diakite was a very decent CD who could boss the back line, Carr and Ferreira were excellent options who could play across the defence and midfield where needed So not used to the league set up our first competative game was in the FFA cup against some lower ranked team so i put the squad together set the tactic and off we went.. Crowley netting 3 in the opening game and I jump for joy thinking this will be a cake walk Well I was a bit over optimistic but we did have a great first season We go on to win the FFA cup... and the league (Australia has a regular season and a league finals so when I saw this) I thought great we've won the league, but then I check our fixtures and were playing in the league semi finals but I went with it and two games later we get this message A brace from Crowley seals the league for certain this time Here's the full season fixture list Not to bad but struggled with losses and draws early on but thankfully found some good form at the end of the season Braedyn Crowley So how did the main man do in our first season together, well he had a great start Netting in his first 13 games but then his form dipped and then this happens So we lost him for two months and by the time he came back the season was wrapping up but he did OK Some slight improvement in his stats and he managed to score 26 in 25 so pretty decent but a slower start than I was hoping (how the hell @Real_Random got off to such a flyer I'll never know) So we push on to season 2 and hope to put a much bigger dent in the total Season 2 Onto our second season at Melbourne City and we have a little bit more to spend this season so I go out and splurge... My three sigings all proved valuable assents to the team especially the young Belgian Trompet who worked his socks off all season in the midfield, Augusto was a winger brought in to add width while Kamari was a great RB/LB option. Then came three more free agents, a new GK in Ben Chrifia, a CD in Poscoliero and a good AP option in Austin then just a few graduates to help depth Lots of older players going out along with the graduates who failed to make the cut So we crack on with the season and go to have a longer season thanks to our inclusion in the Asian Champions League We start by retaining the FFA cup thanks to my two strikers We finish the regular season top of the table and once again move on to the League finals Where we go on to beat Perth and claim our second league title here's the full season fixture list A bad spell in NOV/DEC but we play our way through, also making it out of the group stages and into the quarter finals of the Asian Champions league (which runs into next season, I'm so confused) Braedyn Crowley So hopping to keep Crowley fit and scoring this year how did he do.. Well he stayed fit with no major injuries and played more games... But only netted 12 more goals in 16 extra games but that's OK, that leaves us with 36 left to get and hopefully another season and we can move on from Australia Season 3 Well after two great seasons winning the FFA cup and League twice I was suddenly in demand Plenty of job offers rolling in over the year, but I still had a job to do... So I had very limited funds this year after having to offer pretty much 3/4 of the squad new contracts so it was back into the free agent pool Ibini was brought in as a backup striker and Cobo as a replacement LB, the rest more graduates to fill the ranks Just more of the OLD!!!!!!!!! guard going out the door So as said earlier the Asian Champions League crosses over into this season and we ended last season making it through to the quarter finals, and we continued our good run all the way to the Final(s) (over two legs) We go on to win the final 5-1 over the two legs and add yet another bit of impressive silverwear to the Melbourne City trophy case, but this also meant we were entered into the Club World Championship, where we cruised through the semi finals and faced a Chievo side who had managed to knock out European Champions Roma so I wasn't counting our chickens but... We take our chances and walk away as World Club Champions Back home we also complete another double Taking care of business in the FFA cup and finish top of the league, but there's no screen shots as I was not present at the finals Here's the fixture list This is where my time with Melbourne City ends as in the Semi Finals Crowley scores that all important 36th goal and completes his 100 (it was touch and go as his good form got him called up to the National side and he missed around 8 games almost costing us) So I hand in my resignation and start looking overseas for a new job Braedyn Crowley Just to prove that he did indeed finish Exactly 100 goals so thank you Crowley but it's time I moved on See you on the Flip Side
  4. Hello ! Seeing those two lads @Real_Random and @Taff trying this challenge rose a need to try those wines to show 'em how a Frenchman could handle wine, bordel ! This is my first challenge ever, and I find it funny because it's not just a "score 42K+ goals with a beast". It makes me travel and get out of my comfort zone and go to... Australia ! So here I was, and I decided not to choose a club that had been already chosen by the two fellows up there. So no Brisbane nor Melbourne City. And as I like Navy stuff and they had good training facilities, I chose... Central Coast Mariners FC Well, they have two eligible strikers, Matthew Fletcher and Blake Powell who were almost equivalent, and as I couldn't make up my mind, they decided for me. Beginning of August, both of them decided to get injured, one for two months, the other one for one month... Great start !! Australian wine tasting felt a bit bitter... I then realized that the first game of the season was almost one month later. Both of them were not back on their feet on the 1st league game, but Blake Powell was for the second one, so I chose him. Here's the guy : Nothing exciting... I went shopping to find some guys who could give him good assists and provide him "caviar", as we say in french. Here they are : Transfers I lost my first cup match, I guess the team was not well set yet. Like a diesel engine, we started slowly, but then we got better and better, and managed to finish first of the regular season ! Regular season Then just a matter of time before winning the championship : But you'll ask me, how did my Powell guy perform ? Did he prove to be a good wine guide ? Did he change the (very) bad first impression I had ? Well, I must say he went far better than what I expected. He started with a killing spree, scoring during 13 consecutive games ! New Year's Eve came and he needed two matchdays to recover from the wine hangover... But continued well. The guy scored 37 goals ! Forgot to take a screenshot at that point, I will do it for the next season. Hope you enjoyed the lecture, sorry for any bad engrish. Will post the next season as soon as I finish it !
  5. Hello fellow players!! I am new to this community but I'm not new to the game. I've been reading a lot of your posts and I have decided to challenge myself and whoever else want to join me. And I have decided to take it to the next level. Along with doing 1000 goals challenge I wanted to add something else. So here it is: The challenge is to have everybody in your squad from one nation. Don't go to MyTeam option just take a team and after you decide what is your nation sell everybody else, if you can't sell them loan them out. If you can't sell or loan them out don't give them time to play. I do realize that it's hard to make it happend already but one of them would be your "1000 goals" guy. To be continued...
  6. Simple but difficult challenge. I challenge any one on this site to beat my 13 goals conceded record. Only the top 5 leagues can be used (Germany, Spain, Italy, England and France). Everything else is up to you. Post the league table at the end of the season. Good luck at beating me!
  7. Hello Fellow Vibers and welcome to my first attempt at creating a challenge Now this idea came to me and I thought it could be an idea worth trying as we all know I like a goal challenge So it's a simple enough premise take any team of your liking then over the course of 10/15 years (haven't decided on a time scale yet) take a striker of a different nationality and score 80 goals with them, then move on to your next player who must not already be at the club You score 10 points for every striker who hits 80 goals but all strikers must have completed the 80 goals to count by the end of the 10/15 year period Rules You Must start with a striker from the nation of your club (ie if your playing as Real Madrid, you must have a Spanish striker to start) Your starting striker can be from your starting club (if he's of the same nationality) Only one player from a specific nation (ie no repeats once you have used a Spanish striker must use a different nationality) Can only transfer your new player once your previous one has hit 80 goals New striker must be bought and not already at the club (but either window will do once your player has hit the 80 goal target) Own Formations Proof will be needed so create a thread to follow No reloading to avoid injuries International goals do not count And all the other typical Challenge rules So let me know what you all think, could this be a good idea or not, would 10 or 15 years be better All comments welcome
  8. So will I be posting these challenges now after a handover from @Ashezso hopefully some of the newer guys to the site will post their efforts. I shall start with the classics... The 1000 Goal Challenge The Rules You can manage any club in any league. Player can be real or regen. No preferences/unlockables. No uses of text changes, save editor or IGE at all. No cheating - Restarting to avoid injuries counts as cheating!! International goals count, but only the ones scored in game. So real life goals the player starts on don't count. You have to earn international management, so you can not start with it. A career can be posted but screenshots are needed as evidence. If requested you must upload your save so we can check no cheating has taken place via the save editor, failure to do this will result in you being rejected from the leader board. Own formations only SI databases only No Myclub or created players A few years ago @Sunnyand @Ashez also wrote a handy guide on how to go about this challenge which can be found here: http://fmhvibe.co.uk...goal-challenge/ LEADERBOARD @BatiGoal - 1,017 Goals - - Asier Villalibre - EME - Season Link
  9. Introduction Collymore-Fowler, Owen-Heskey, Yorke-Cole, Henry-Berkamp, Raul-Morientes, Del Piero-Trezuguet or going back even further, the likes of Rush-Dalglish or even further back Puskas-Di Stefano. And of course, more recently, Rooney-Van Persie. These are some of the great strike partnerships in the history of football. These Players feed off each other and strike terror in the hearts of opposition defenders. These Players who more than anything else, put the ball in the net again and again, time after time. The challenge is simple enough, but can you beat it? Objective The objective of this challenge is to have two strikers score a combined total of 1200 goals. As an additional challenge one may attempt to also rack up a combined 600 assists between the pair. Rules - The two strikers must both be playing as strikers at all times (Both strikers A and B must be playing in a forward role ~ no advanced playmakers! ~ Trequartistas are fine) - You must use a tactic with two strikers at all times. That means no formations with one up top! - Both Real Players and Regens are allowed - No Unlockables/Cheats can be used - No use of the in game editor - No reloading to avoid injuries - International Goals count, but only those a player scores in game. Also both strikers must be of the same nationality for it to count. - Screenshots are required as evidence Leaderboard @Taff - 1,234 Goals - - Anthony Martial & M'Baye Niang - EME - Season Link
  10. H2H Challenges

    Hello Vibers, I have come to you with a question. In my earlier Vibe years Head-to-Head (H2H) challenges were very popular. Sam and Ashez are actually going at it in a current career and it's created a fair amount of interest. But I haven't seen any H2H challenges posted since the release of FMM17. I love following these and I may join one myself one of these days. I was thinking of updating the A-Z list of H2H I created back in 2015 removing some of the unplaybale ones, such as any involving Brazilian teams, and replacing those with Polish/Turkish and/or other teams. A fresh update is needed but before I put my valuable effort and time in it I'd like to ask you: Are you interested in either playing or following a H2H challenge? If you're not sure what these short (1-season) challenges are all about please have a look at the 2015 H2H list. Head to Head challenges Please let me know what you think. If these spark enough interest here on Vibe I'll gladly do an update for FMM17 with many more exciting H2H challenges, if not, I'll leave 'em untouched in the dusty archives cabinet.
  11. So it's a familiar concept, the more shots you have, generally, the more goals you score. Now, by having 5 out & out attackers, surely this will result in more goals? The challenge I'm giving you, is to start a save with any club you like, but you have to have 5 attackers in your formation (etc: 4-1-5) Every game you play must have 5 attackers, and you must try to win as many games as possible. The person with the most goals at the end of their first season (league only), wins! Good luck! Peace, www.youtube.com/kingwan
  12. Welcome to.. I've been thinking about this challenge for some time now and I think I came up with the final ingredient to make it fun and work at the same time. So I'm proud to present you the grape expedition, the vineyard tour, the wine-tasting challenge, the drunkards field trip, ..let's keep it clean and just refer to it as the WWT. I don't want to complicate what can be really simple and fun so here it goes: You love your wine and you know your wine so you're going on a Wine World Tour. There's one little catch though, you may know your wine very well but you have zero geographical sense so you're going to need to hire a local guide (player) to do the "dirty work" for you: picking 100 grapes (scoring 100 goals) and guide you to your next country and vineyard (club) where another local guide is waiting for you to do some more grape-picking and so forth. Second catch, did I mention there was a second catch?, each guide can cost no more than €10M, that's all your sponsors are willing to fork out on you per every visited wine-producing country. Since your sponsors are based in one of the the world's most commercially attractive and wine producing/exporting countries on the globe, your challenge is going to kick off in Australia. You then move on the Europe's finest in either Italy, France, Portugal and/or Spain. This is where I give you a little freedom to determine your route and eventual final destination for this challenge. There's 4 top European wine nations but you need to pick, and load, 3 after your main league Australia. Once you're done in Australia you're allowed to visit any of those 3 wine nations in no specific order, wherever your preferences lie or wherever a vineyeard becomes available for some more wine-tasting. Remember, you need a new local guide (meaning same nationality as home nation) for every country to pick 100 grapes. You can either use a local guide that is already at the vineyard or hire/buy one for no more than €10M. Whether you opt for a guide exchange deal in order to get a much more valuable and qualified guide I don't care, as long as you spend no more than €10M on each local 100-grape-picking guide of yours, as per your sponsors' request. Briefing: Load primary league Australia + sec. leagues France / Italy / Portugal and/or Spain Kick off this Wine World Tour in Australia and have your local guide pick 100 grapes Move on to European Wine Nation 1 and have your new local guide pick 100 grapes Move on to European Wine Nation 2 and have your new local guide pick 100 grapes Move on to European Wine Nation 3 and have your new local guide pick 100 grapes Congratulations with picking no less than 400 grapes and thus completing this Wine World Tour. Goodluck and Cheers!
  13. Introduction Sir Alf Ramsey is probably most commonly known for being the first and only (to date) manager to win the World Cup with England. His triumphs before the national job, however, are even more impressive. Ramsey took charge of Ipswich Town just after their relegation from the second division (Championship) at the end of the 1954-1955 season, remarkably winning the first division (Premier League) in the 1961-1962 season. The Challenge This challenge is to emulate that success, by taking charge of a recently-relegated Championship club, and lead them to the Premier League title 7 years later (If you can do it in less time, then great). Then, you will take over England and lead them to World Cup glory in the following tournament. 2016-2017 At the start of the game, you must take charge of a club who has just been relegated from the Championship, which can be either : - Bolton Wanderers - MK Dons - Charlton Athletic Then, you must lead your side to ATLEAST a 3rd place finish in your first season (If you finish higher, then great) whilst scoring 106 goals in the 46 games (2.3 goals per game). 2017-2018 In your 2nd season, you must guide your team to the division title (If you already achieved promotion in your first season, forget about this bit). 2018-2019 Finish ATLEAST in mid-table. 2019-2020 In the summer transfer window, purchase an English striker aged 22 or younger (Ray Crawford), maintaining the mid-table finish from the previous season. 2020-2021 For the 3rd season in a row, finish mid-table or higher. 2021-2022 Win the Championship title, scoring 100 goals or more. The English striker you bought in 2019 MUST be the leagues top scorer with 40 goals or more. 2022-2023 In your first season in the top flight, win the Premier League title, with both of your strikers (One of them being your 2019 signing) scoring 60 goals or more between them. 2023-2024 Keep your side in the top flight, while making it to ATLEAST the last 16 of the UEFA Champions League, and achieving 35 points or more in the league. The England Job Apply for the England job in the summer of 2024. It may or may not be available, depending on the performance in the 2024 European Championships. If it isn't available, stay at your club until it is. Your achievements should be enough to make you one of the favourites. When You Land The National Job When you get the England job, you must name one of your centre-backs the new captain of the nation (If a centre-back is already captain, then forget about this part). In the upcoming World Cup, you must lead England to glory, with one of your strikers scoring atleast 4 goals. Formations You Must Use (If You Want To Make It Harder) If you want to make it a little harder and challenging for yourself, then these are the formations you must use for club and country. For your club, you must use any variation of the 4-2-4 formation (You can structure it yourself etc, as long as its 4-2-4) For England, you must use a 4-1-3-2 formation (England's World Cup winning formation is below). Thank you for reading and let me know if you attempt this challenge. Leave any questions in the comments.
  14. Le Tour de France 2017 I'd like to present you one of my personal favorite challenges. It's an updated version of my 'Le Tour de France 2015' challenge. Two years ago the Tour started in Holland, but now, two years later, the Tour is going to kick-off in Germany. So with that along with a few new French teams that joined the top division I revived and updated this adventurous challenge for you to attempt. Description The Tour 2017 is starting off in Germany before making a quick passage through Belgium and Luxembourg and as usual continuing, and finally ending, in France. There are 21 stages in this cycling competition before reaching its finish line in Paris but for the convenience of this challenge I've reduced it to 3 with a final stage. For this challenge you'll not only need to pick a player who excels at 1 particular aspect only, such as scoring goals or providing assists, but at both. Tour de France champions excel in a team (I call it assists) as well as in individual time trials (the goals) so you'll need to choose wisely. A player who can play in multiple positions (AMC L/R and ST) is highly recommended. The 3 Stages + Final Stage Stage 1: Germany Pick any German team from the top division Stage 2: North France Pick any Northern French team from the top division Stage 3: South France Pick any Southern French team from the top division Final Stage: Paris Land the PSG job The Challenge Bring your player to Germany and provide 25 assists in stage 1 Move your player to N. France and provide 25 assists in stage 2 Move your player to S. France and provide 25 assists in stage 3 Move your player to Paris (PSG) and score 250 goals Completed! To anyone joining Le Tour de France 2017 GOODLUCK
  15. Averaging Out

    Averaging Out The following challenge was used for the final of the Challenge Cup 2015. The challenge: · Take control of any team in any league, it works just as well. Saint-Étienne in France were used for the challenge cup final. · You must start the season with a squad of 30 players. No constraints on transfers, or whether the players are on loan or not, you must start the season with 30 players. Once you have played the first league match of the season, no more transfers are allowed. · Keep an eye on the average rating of your players. On the 31st of each month, you must demote your two highest rated players, never to be used again (unless they apply to the next rule). · When January comes around, you may promote two players of your choice that you have demoted in the first part of the season. By my calculations, you will be demoting two players every month for 9 months (August-April) and with the two you are allowed to re-promote, you will finish the season with 14 players . The same old rules such as no unlockables and own tactics only, although I can't really stop anyone. It's just for fun. Obviously this challenge is just for fun but if anyone fancies adding points into it then the following is the points system: Points system League points Goal difference Points from EL group stage 2 points for each round passed in domestic cups 2 points for each knockout EL round passed 20 points for 1st in league, 19 for 2nd, etcetera...

  16. The Vikings Cometh! Introduction Back in the earlier days of Britain our little island nation was subject to many an invasion from foreign lands. This is partly what formed our language and why it is so complex. One such invasion was that of the vikings. These Scandinavian warriors invaded the north east of our lands and made their way inland taking over whatever and wherever they could. This rich history has brought me to a challenge to be created involving these very norsemen(or at least their nations). The Challenge Squad Requirements Select a premier league or championship team from the "viking invasion catchment area" (VICA) listed below. Sell or demote all non-viking (Denmark, Sweden and Norway) players Build an all viking squad. The VICA teams. Conquer England (and Defend it) Win at least 2 premier league titles back to back Win at least 1 FA cup Win at least 1 EFL trophy Win BPL player of the year with any "king" (see special players) three times, can be 3 seperate kings. Win Golden boot with any "warlord" (see special players) three times can be 3 seperate warlords. Conquer Europe (and the world) Win the champions league Win the club World cup (Optional) Have your "king" win world player of the year (Optional) defend your champions league title (Optional) win the Euros managing a viking nation (Sweden, Norway, Denmark) (Optional) win the world cup managing a viking nation Special Players King - Pick any of your players to be king at the beginning of each season. The king must prove he is worthy of his title by being the best player in the land. If your king fails to win BPL player of the year he must be banished (demoted and/or sold). If another of your players wins it he is now king. If not choose a new king. Warlord - At the beginning of each season pick a warlord who is your master of attack. Your warlord must win the BPL golden boot to prove his attacking prowess. If he fails to do so he is banished (demoted and/or sold).

  17. Back To The Future - A Turkish Challenge With 2017 bringing a new league to the table I decided to read up on the history of Turkish football. It's a league I'm not to knowledgable about apart from the basics but straight away I was given this concept. Turkish football began due to Englishmen living in the area and the first match took place in the modern day Izmir region in 1875. However Turkish players were prohibited from playing and in 1899 police even raided the field arresting players! Fuat Hüsnü Kayacan is regarded as the first Turkish player in history to play football during 1898 with clubs mainly consisting of English, Greek and Armenian players. The first Turkish based club was called The Black Stockings and they were the club with the police issues before other clubs followed suit. This brief backstory brings me on to the challenge itself. The idea of the challenge is to start as a club in the in Turkey and at this club you'll only be allowed to field players with the nationality of English, Greek or Armenian. You'll have one exception however as you will be required to have one Turkish player within your ranks. Aim Of The Challenge Playing as any club in Turkey you have to achieve these honours. Win 1 European Trophy Win 1 League Trophy Win 2 Turkish Cups Have Your Turkish Star Win A POTY award at any level As none of the Ismir club's are in the top division it means you can't load England (All) which massively hinders the saves potential at these clubs. By all means attempt it with one if you want a really tough challenge but I've decided to open it up to all Turkish clubs to make it more approachable. Rules 1. All Turkish players must be demoted to the reserves and sold, apart from the chosen one. 2. You can only use/sign players with a Greek, English or Armenia nationality. You can also sign the one Turkish player you intend to use. 3. The Turkish player can be replaced but you can only have one Turkish player in your squad at any one time. 4. Own formations only. 5. No use of the editors 6. No cheating, save reloading is cheating. 7. Screenshot evidence will be required, I suggest posting a career for us to follow. 8. No unlockables Hopefully you like the challenge as I've attempted to blend my style with the one of Danovic78's. All information is taken from Wiki so I apologise if there is any mistakes or anything like that. PS - Open to name suggestions for the challenge, none really came to mind.
  18. Started From The Bottom Now We're Here Challenge This challenge started by Dafuge a member of the Sports Interactive forums. So the credit goes to him! - Aim in this one is to take a small club previously unplayable in an unedited game from the Vanaram Conference N/S to Premier League and Champions League glory. Now instead of taking a club already in the bottom leagues, you'll have to simulate one season in the game, and then take over one of the newly promoted clubs from the lower league. This makes the challenge harder for two reasons. First one is the fact that you'll be taking over a club that is the weakest in the league, cause it's newly promoted. Yet the other problem you'll face is since you are starting one year into the game, you wont be able to sign the best players at the start of the game, as they will already be signed elsewhere. If you get sacked you fail the challenge! No IGE,PGE or SE to be used No Unlockables No Save and Reloading Good luck and may the odds ever be in your favour Leaderboard: Member - Team - Seasons to win Champions League
  19. The Diego Maradona Napoli Challenge "Napoli signing Diego Maradona in 1984? The modern equivalent would be if they bought Cristiano Ronaldo today. And that's clearly impossible." That's the view of 85-year-old Corrado Ferlaino, president of the Italian club between 1983 and 1993. The arrival of the Argentine genius for £7million from Barcelona in the summer of 1984 was the coup of the century. Napoli had purchased a young demi-god destined for greatness. He was explosive, agile and resistant. A squat, slippery figure with a left foot from heaven. Perhaps the finest dribbler in history. His spell in Naples was full of thrills, skills and controversy. Maradona was the ideal object for their adoration. He was whole-hearted, flamboyant and capable of miracles. A packed San Paolo Stadium welcomed their saviour on the evening of July 5, 1984. Wearing a Napoli scarf, he did a few keepy-ups in the centre circle, surrounded by photographers, before a lap of the pitch. It was love at first sight for player and supporters. Between 1984 and 1991, Maradona played 259 times for Napoli and scored 115 goals.He won two Serie A titles, the Italian Cup, Italian Supercup and the UEFA Cup. Can you beat this? Challenge Rules 1. Load up Italy and any other countries and take charge of Napoli. 2. You must sign an Argentinian Advanced Playmaker/Striker 2. You have Seven Seasons in which to replicate the trophies. 3. You must win at least 2 League Titles, 1 Italian Cup, 1 Suppacoppa's, 1 Champions League/Europa League. 4. He must score at least 115 Goals in the seven seasons and must be top scorer in Serie A for at least one season. 5. Own formations only 6. No unlockables, edited databases, or use of any of the editors 7. Evidence is required, I'd suggest posting a career thread for us to follow. 8. No cheating - Restarting to avoid injuries counts as cheating!! Leaderboard
  20. Which Challenge Is Best

    I need help with a challenge. I have two challenges in mind. One challenge is a 500/300 called Captain America.(Christian Pulisic). The other challenge was to create Pele and Maradona with 2.5-star ability and 5 star potential and see who ends up becoming the better player.
  21. I have decided to start a challenge based on the achievements of Graham Taylor at Watford late 70s/80s where he took a Division 4 Watford all the way to 2nd place in Division 1 within 6 years (This was before he became England Manager and ruined his reputation) To match his remarkable success I will need to take over a League 2 side (Stevenage) and guide them to at least 2nd in the Premiership again within 6 years...... more to follow
  22. Make Em Great Again The entire Football world was given its biggest shock earlier today when a plane holding players from Copa SudaAmerica finalists, Chapecoense SC crashed. As to my knowledge none of the players have survived the crash. This is a heart wrenching incident which we all would have thought was remotely not possible following the enhancement of technology to such a far out level in the current day world. All we can do now, is pray for the families of the deceased and hope their souls attain peace Hi,guys so I'm back after an eternity. And I'll be totally honest,I wasn't gonna be coming back for a while after I totally lost interest in Football Manager. I'll tell the truth, I haven't even downloaded the game as of yet,it's currently installing. But the news of the plane crash compelled me to get playing as I had an idea for a simple yet fulfilling challenge. Now,we cannot do anything for those who have passed. But my way to honour them is in the way if a challenge. This is not the first time such things have happned. 1949 Torino and 1958 Munich Air Disaster are 2 other infamous yet similar happenings. We all remember the fallen every year and it's our duty to do so. So from my own pockets,I present to you The Make Em Great Again challenge. Objective: Like the title says, make Em great again. It's very simple. Take Chapecoense SC and bring them to the TOP, similar to what Sir Bobby Robson did with Man Utd after the Munich crash. The simple objective in this is to win every trophy possible to you. Rules: 1. No Cheating: I'm very strict with this rule because first of all cheating ruins the fun of the game and secondly. We're honouring the dead hear so the least we can do is play by the rules 2. No Using Unlockables: Counted in cheating probably but unless h unlock it in the save, no using them 3. No changing teams: This is making Chapecoense great again, not making you the greatest manager 4.Try your best 5. Have Fun: I'm strict with this one too, have fun coz were honouring the dead ,I definitely do not need somebody half hearted into the save to play this at all. Where I am in the world and for many of you'll too. We cannot do much about thus incident other than read,gossip and give our hearts to the families of the dead. I feel that no matter how small this challenge is, it will give me some inner peace as well as some of you. So Have Fun and play this for them. Amen. #PrayForChapecoense
  23. Introduction I didn't want to clutter this space with the full intro so you can find it here. http://vibe.community/forums/forum/135-football-manager-mobile-2017/?do=add The Challenge Basically the challenge is to somewhat emulate the career of Rinus Michel, in order to do this you must Begin your career with a lesser Dutch Eredivisie side (as he took over a struggling Ajax). You may choose from: Sparta Rotterdam, Go Ahead Eagles, Willem II, Exelcior, Roda JC or FC Twente. With this chosen club win 4 league titles, 3 cup titles and 1 Champions league title. Move to any Spanish side and win the league. Move to any other league or go unemloyed by a club for a minimum of one season Move back to Spain and win the Copa del Rey Move to Germany and win the German cup At any point in this career become a manager of a European national team and win 1 European championship Reach 1 world cup final. Rules Loaded leagues are Holland, Spain, Germany and any other of your choice You must pick one of the listed Dutch clubs above You may not move onto a new leg of the challenge until the current leg is completed other than the international side of things. You may manage a club and national side at the same time (but extra credit for doing it seperately) No cheats/unlockables at any point. I believe that is all I need to say other than good luck to any takers.
  24. Fulham in Europe

    Fulham in Europe Challenge After finishing 7th in the Premier League in 2008/09, Fulham earned the right to compete in the inaugural Europa League season. Their European journey was longer than anyone predicted with Fulham reaching the final of the Europa League only to be defeated 2-1 by Atletico Madrid. This run was in no small part down to the goal scoring exploits of Bobby Zamora who scored eight goals in only 17 appearances. The Challenge Start with Fulham Earn European qualification within two seasons Sign an English striker to replicate Zamora's scoring in Europe. ( 8 goals) Reach the final of the European competition you entered. Try go one better than Fulham and win the European completion you entered. Hardmode (Optional) Same rules as above but you must qualify for Europe the same way Fulham did (7th place) . Rules All regular rules, (no editors, reloading or use of my club or edited databases). Own formations only. European qualification can be achieved from either Cup success or league position. This challenge does not require you to be in the premier league but it does make it easier. Your chosen player's goals are the only goals that count towards beating Zamora's total. Your chosen player only needs to be signed before your European campaign. Scoring Due to the multiple different ways this challenge can be completed a points system shall be used. Champions League Final= 3 points. Champions League Win= 5 points. Europa League Final= 4 points. Europa League Win= 6 points. (The Europa League is worth more points due to being the inspiration for this challenge). Achieving Zamora's goal total in Europe with your chosen player= 8 points. Every goal scored in Europe by your chosen player above Zamora's total= 2 points per goal. Leaderboard
  25. The Clean Sheet Challenge We all love to score goals and as such attacking players from FMM become legends on Vibe. With the 1k Challenge to Double Trouble and Triple Threat we are spoilt for choice when it comes to goal scoring challenges but spare a thought for those lonely guys between the posts. The guys who are constantly picking the ball out of the net and crying into their gloves as the opposition fans taunt them from only a few metres away. Now it's the keepers turn to take centre stage. Time for them to become Legends on Vibe and have a challenge just for themselves. This challenge will see the Keeper of your choice attempt to keep 300 cleansheets during his career. The number was something that took a while to decide on but I feel it gives the best balance between being manageable and still very challenging. The beauty of this challenge is that it can be played alongside many other challenges. Good luck and lets make some heroes! The Rules Pick one keeper to attempt this challenge No unlockables Own formations only No save/reloading If the game goes to extra time your keeper needs to keep the ball out for 120 minutes (penalty shootouts dont count) *Evidence will be required. Screen shots of each match will need to be posted in your career thread. I suggest the match rating screen at the end of the game. This will show your keeper played and the final score.
