Nice one, as usual ! I hope your next job will be in another country ;) 

Thanks mate! Yeah hopefully we can move from England at some point, that's partly why I loaded leagues like Scotland and Portugal as opportunities should come around quicker than some of the bigger nations :).

Who needs a theme or side challenges? The constant wandering - for some reason one of the catchy tunes from the 1980s popped to mind "They Call Me The Wanderer" - and makes it fun to follow. Now I should find a way to play that song in the background everytime I read your update :) great job!

The best kind of nostalgia! I have a challenge based on a song I've always wanted to do as it goes, just never gone through with it as I know it'll have some dull waiting for move sections which I hate playing. Also worried as it's a niche idea so likely a lot of wasted time for little entertainment Vibe wise haha. This is the first save I've played in a long, long time with no real goal attached to it and it has been a blast to play, really been storming through the seasons! This is easily the longest save I've had this year season wise already so plenty of updates to come! Might wack out another season tonight even :).

As I said above it's been a great little save :). Hoping this posting style helps bring it to life for all of you guys too :). I just didn't think my normal updating style would make it interesting enough as it lacks that main goal reveal like how a striker did etc.

Just caught up on this and two main things to say:

1. This is an awesome concept and will be great to follow along with.

2. Mate, you are killing it. Back to back titles is just amazing! 

Great stuff! :)

As I've said before it's a concept that's always appealed to me even though it's the opposite to how I usually like to play. Oddly enough it's a challenge that hasn't had much love over the years, i don't think many attempts have been posted, maybe two others? Not sure top my head. 

It's no secret that Rafa inspired me alot on Vibe and two of his careers will always stay in my memory, his Caretaker Challenge and his Yes-Manager save. Worth searching for if anyone fancies a read :). 

Thanks for the comment :)

I suppose I could be tempted to update tomorrow, see how I feel as last update I posted on a weekend bombed completely, no idea why but it did so I'm not keen on weekend updates :/

All together now! Can just see the stands at every club singing this! Recently finished S12 I think it was so plenty of wandering to come! But I am also roaming like crazy in Hyrule! Haha

Looking forward to seeing this - I started the challenge myself over the weekend. Currently at Yeovil and have won all my first 16 games. I'm torn between tying their star players down to long term deals (I've become quite fond of them) and letting their contracts run down so I might be able to pick them up for my next job.

Ashez Plays The Caretaker Challenge
Season Three

As expected i never found the time to post over the weekend, this update is a big one though so hopefully it was worth the wait! In two seasons we've managed to win two league titles and climb up to the heights of League One, i wonder what season three will bring to the table, let's find out. 

The Job Centre

Spoiler

 

A Big Offer Right Off The Bat!

You have my attention

My Decision

It would be stupid not to! Especially in an ACON's season!

We have one job lined up, what about at club level?

Club Level Offers

lBmhdfr.png

It was a tempting offer but i've already conquered League One, ideally i want a new challenge. 

Then Nothing!

September and October passed by with no opportunities, i started to panic as i knew i had to play the game to improve my reputation! 

Finally An Offer

KVG9IqP.png

Looks like i'll be stuck in League One for this season. 

 

I'll Be The Caretaker Of.....

Staying in League One is a disappointment in terms of progress but it should still be a fun season, the real shining light however has to be our first international job!

Unfortunately i'm really not sure who i brought in here. I think i signed Vose, Gecchele (wingback) and maybe Bento, really not sure. All the free transfers were mine though minus Gomes.

Thank you all for viewing and supporting this thread, i appreciate this was a long update so hopefully you all managed to sit through it and enjoy it! As always comments are appreciated and motivating.

I was also extremely surprised! It was available so i thought i'd throw my hat in the ring and was amazed when they offered it me! Seems somewhat inconsistent though as most seasons African teams were available but i didn't hear much back that often, even after this season.

That's what i love to hear as there is plenty more to come! I wonder how long we can keep this title streak going! The issue will be as i get more fussy on where i go i could be joining teams later and later in the year etc. 

Thanks for the comments guys

There's Mr. Wanderer again... fantastic stuff. Makes me wanna have a go with an African nation as well. Taking on the Barnsley job looked like it was going to be tough but your run in the second half of the season was incredible. Great season! dara dara dara..

Congrats on having this song in my head anytime I think of this save now :@:P 

ITN can be fun but it's so poorly implemented in game I usually avoid it if I can. Main reason I took it was to boost rep but also because I've always asked for the ACON's to be included. Just as a feature ITN is annoying, time consuming and could be so much better. I'd love an ITN focused release on a WC year but I've being saying that for years now, i get it's not a selling point so not worth it but at same time it needs so much work! I really could talk at length about this issue :/. As for Barnsley it was an easy season thankfully, don't worry the heartbreak comes later down the line.......

It was nice to take advantage of an AI signing you'd never be able to pull off!
