  1. After watching Sutton United go down to Arsenal on Monday, I thought of the following challlenge, just a short one for a laugh. The challenge is to take charge of Sutton United and emulate there run to the 5th Round of the FA Cup. The only not so real part to this challenge is, although he was only a sub keeper, The Roly Poly Goalie himself must feature prominently. I have never seen anything like it a 20 odd stone footballer shoving a pasty down his throat on the Subs Bench No Sugar Daddy No IGE Any tactics can be used Offer Wayne Shaw coaching position, even though it means sacking another coach to make space for the big man...Hopefully he would remain in the First Team Squad... Make any signing you want, free or otherwise Not as simple as it may sound, hope some decide to answer the challenge...If anyone takes the challenge reply to this post rather than create a new career thread
  2. 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 - 1,091 Goals - - Asier Villalibre - EME - Season Link

  4. Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, commonly known as Ronaldo, is one of the best players of all times. The Phenomenon, as he was called, played 98 matches for Brazil National Team and scored 62 goals. He is one of the few players that played for rival teams, and yet, is a fan favorite for both of them (Real Madrid and Barcelona, A.C Milan and INTER). Having played for PSV, Barcelona, INTER, Real Madrid and Milan, this challenge revolves around him. Load the following nations: Holland, Italy, Spain and one Nation of your choice. Challenges: 1) Win Eredivisie and the Dutch Cup, playing preferentially with PSV; then go to Spain. 2) Win, playing with Barcelona, at least one Copa del Rey, one UEFA SuperCup and one Supercopa de España; then go to Italy. 3) Playing with INTER, win at least one UEFA Europa League. Move back to Spain. 4) Playing with Real Madrid, win two La Liga, one Fifa Club World Cup and another SuperCopa de España. 5) Managing a National Team, win two World Cups and one Continental Cup. 6) You have 17 seasons to do all of that. Optional: Go back to Italy and manage Milan (Although an elite player, Ronaldo didn't play well while at Milan. Struggling with his weight, and suffering injuries, he was never the player that Milan expected him to be) Win UEFA Champions League (Despite playing all those years in Europe, Ronaldo never won a Champions League. The closest that he has been was in 2003, when he helped Real Madrid reach the semi-finals, and ended up losing to Juventus.) End your career in the 4th Nation picked by you. (Ronaldo ended his career in Brazil, but since we can't play there anymore, is up to you guys) Bonus: Pick a player. Every time you move to another team, sign him also. Make him score: 54 goals playing for PSV; 47 goals playing for Barcelona; 59 goals playing for INTER; 104 goals playing for Real Madrid. Also, make him the Player of the Year for three times. Rules: No use of Sugar Daddy or in Game Editor; Original database only. No cheating which includes reloading. No unlockables unless earn't on that save. Good luck guys! If you think of doing it, I'd suggest creating a topic so we can follow your career!
  5. You are a young aspiring football fan living in Cardiff and studying at their university. While walking down the corridor you overhear a conversation claiming that the school's football team, Cardiff Met Uni, had sacked their manager. You decide to apply for the job. After all you are failing all your classes. The meeting with the board goes well and they decide to offer you the job. You begin a new life as a football manager, determined to be the best in the world. The challenge Your aim is to win 4 league titles in four different leagues and also win the champions league at at least 3 different clubs. Sounds like a fairly standard challenge? Well there are a few rules. RULE 1 - You have to start at Cardiff Met Uni, and you can only leave this club once you have guided them into a European competition group stage. (Europa or Champions league) Once they are there you can either resign or carry on building. RULE 2 - You can only win a domestic league with a team that has never won that league before. RULE 3 - You can only win the champions league with a team that has never won it before. RULE 4 - You have to win the champions league with at least 3 teams, all of which have to be in a different country. What leagues to load? I would recommend loading England as the first league. Due to the fact Wales is an obscure league it means that your reputation won't increase as much, so having the lower English leagues might be very helpful. You obviously need Wales as another league. The other leagues you have to load are France and Portugal. LEAGUES 1 England - All leagues 2 Wales - First division only 3 France - First division only 4 Portugal - First division only This is my first challenge input so I hope you enjoy. Make sure to comment with any questions or improvements.

  7. Hello my fellow Vibers, I'm back with another attempt at what I believe to be a great Challenge/Career this one brought to you courtesy of @liam1872 Here's a link to the OP which is well worth a read What follows is my attempt at the career set out by Liam, so without ado lets begin Season 1 So to begin our journey I chose to start in Portugal where the two main objectives are to end the dominance of the big three Sporting, FCP and SLB by winning back to back league titles, and then to claim the highest league points total ever achieved in the Portuguese premier league which stands at 88 points. A bonus objective of beating the 56 game unbeaten run set by Benfica (but this will be a bonus and not something I will be too worried about) So with the big three not an option I chose who I think (not really sure) the fourth best side in Portugal Braga So I start my journey here, and look to take on the big 3, we start by evaluating the squad and then hitting the transfer market With very limited funds available I decide to hit the free agent market looking to score some bargains Four players brought in to help the squad, Menendez was brought in to help out at the CD, Koc was a good find for RW, Rossi for CM and Tavares as a backup GK Some unwanted youngsters and older players to free up some squad space So with my shopping done we crack on with the season, we open with a tough game against SLB in the Supertaca, We miss out after a late winner from Grimaldo but a very even looking game, gives me some confidence going in to the season So onto the league and it went well a few bumps but.... We lift our first league title and just hope we can repeat it next year, we had a bad run of games towards the end which left us only 4 points clear and no where near the 89 points we need We also manage some success in the domestic cups We gain some revenge on SLB by beating them 3-0 in the League cup final We rely on a penalty shootout to win the Taca de Portugal after a disappointing 1-1 draw with Maritimo I also chose Braga due to their involvement in the Euro Cup After drawing the first three games we go on to win the next three which is enough to see us top the group and progress to the knockout round Where our European dream dies after a bad second leg against Celtic Here's our full season fixture list As you can see a bad run at the end of the season almost took our title away but we held on and managed to have a very good first season Here's my player stats (Goals and Assists) My two star players Nikola Stojilijkovic (PCR) and Wilson Eduardo (LIF) both top there respective tables with the former netting a very decent 39 goals this season but Eduardo netting 19 and with 24 assists gets my vote for POTY, speaking of awards The boys grab 1st and 2nd in the Portuguese POTY And I claim the MOTY award after helping Braga to the League title So now we move onto a season 2 and hopefully a second league title (and 89+ points)
  8. The Aloysius Paulus Maria "Louis" van Gaal Challenge Aloysius Paulus Maria "Louis" van Gaal is one of the most decorated managers in world football. Before his career as a coach, Van Gaal played as a midfielder for Royal Antwerp, Telstar, Sparta Rotterdam, Ajax and AZ. He is also a fully qualified physical education teacher and has worked as such at high schools during various stages of his career as a semi-professional footballer. After a brief spell as coach at AZ, Van Gaal served as assistant coach under Leo Beenhakker at Ajax and eventually took over as head coach in 1991. Under his lead, the club won three Eredivisie titles, the UEFA Cup, and the Champions League. He moved to Barcelona in 1997 and won two Spanish league titles and one Copa del Rey. After some disagreements at Barcelona, he was appointed coach of the Netherlands national team, but failed to qualify for the 2002 World Cup. Another brief spell at Barcelona followed before he became manager of AZ. After winning the Eredivisie with AZ in 2008–09, he was hired by Bayern Munich on 1 July 2009. In his first season at Bayern, he secured the Bundesliga title, won the DFB-Pokal, and reached the final of the Champions League. In July 2012, he was appointed manager of the Netherlands for the second time and led them to third place at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, before leaving for Manchester United. He had a satisfactory first season. However, after only finishing fifth in his second season he was sacked and replaced by José Mourinho, despite winning the FA Cup. Can you match van Gaal's trophy haul and go even better? Rules Load up Holland, Spain, Germany and England. Take control of any top flight Dutch team (Ajax if you want to be authentic) Stage 1: In Holland you must win at least - 3 x Eredivisie 3 x KNVB Cup (Dutch Cup) 3 x Johan Cruyff Shield (Dutch Super Cup) 2 x European Trophies (UEFA Champions League or UEFA Europa League) 1 x UEFA Super Cup 1 x FIFA Club World Cup Stage 2: Move to Spain where you must win at least - 2 x La Liga 1 x Copa del Rey 1 x UEFA Super Cup Stage 3: Head back to Holland now, with a different club than you started with to win - 1 x Eredivisie Stage 4: Off to Germany next to win at least - 1 x Bundesliga 1 x DFB-Pokal (German Cup) 1 x DFB-Supercup Stage 5: Then finally head to England to win - 1 x FA Cup BONUS - Land the Holland job and win any major trophy.

  9. 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 !

  13. The William Ralph "Dixie" Dean Challenge "He belongs to the company of the supremely great, like Beethoven, Shakespeare and Rembrandt", said Bill Shankly. There are some old Everton supporters who still swear on their mam’s grave that this is true: It happened in the late 1920s, they say, on the morning before a derby game against the dreaded Reds from Anfield. Dixie Dean, pride of Everton and the finest header of the ball that ever lived, was walking down Liverpool’s Victoria Street. On the pavement opposite strolled the incomparable Liverpool goalkeeper, Elisha Scott. Dean nodded to his old foe as they passed - and Scott instinctively dived through a plate-glass shop front! Dean was still a teenager when he left Tranmere Rovers and signed for Everton in 1925. The transfer fee was £3,000, which equates to £160,000 in today’s money - and the Blues certainly got full value for what was a record fee received by the Wirral club at the time. During his 12-year stay at Goodison, Dean won the First Division championship twice and the FA Cup (as captain) in 1933, the Blues’ first appearance at Wembley. It was said his presence on the Everton teamsheet could add a further 5,000 to Goodison attendances, earning his club millions in additional gate receipts over the years. The goals flowed and flowed and flowed. He scored 349 in the league in 399 matches, plus a further 28 in 32 FA Cup ties and 18 in 16 England appearances. When George Camsell scored 59 Football League goals for Middlesbrough in 1926/27 he must have believed that his record for last for years. It lasted just one season being bettered by William Ralph Dean - Dixie Dean. Not that it was easy, with two matches remaining he needed seven goals to beat the record. Four of them came against Burnley in the penultimate match and on Saturday 5th May 1927 48,715 Everton fans were at Goodison to welcome the newly-crowned League champions and to see Dean get a hat-trick to take the record from Camsell. Arsenal opened the scoring after two minutes - Dean equalised a minute later. In the 6th minute Dean was fouled in the box and converted the penalty. The record equalled and plenty of time to beat it but it wasn't until 8 minutes from the end when Alec Troup sent in a corner for Dean to head home the record-breaking 60th goal. Can you match these amazing goal-scoring exploits? Challenge Rules 1. Load up England and any other countries and take charge of any Premier League club (Everton if you want to go authentic) and sign an English striker. 2. You have 12 seasons in which to match and surpass Dean's incredible goal scoring feats 3. You must beat his record of 60 league goals, 37 hat-tricks and 383 club goals. 4. The player must also win at least 2 League Titles, 2 Charity Shield and 1 FA Cup. 5. No unlockables, edited databases, or use of any of the editors 6. Evidence is required, I'd suggest posting a career thread for us to follow. 7. No cheating - Restarting to avoid injuries counts as cheating!! Leaderboard
  14. The Helenio Herrera Challenge Herrera was arguably the first manager to collect credit for his teams' performances, in the process becoming a superstar in the world of football. Up to that time, managers were more marginal figures in a team. All teams throughout Europe were known for their headline-grabbing individual players, e.g. Di Stéfano's Real Madrid, whereas Inter during the 1960s is still referred to as Herrera's Inter. During his managerial career, Herrera won four La Liga titles in Spain (with Atlético Madrid and Barcelona) and three Serie A titles in Italy with Inter. He also guided Inter to European glory, winning two consecutive European Cups, among several other honours. He is regarded as one of the greatest managers of all time. In January 2017, Herrera was named among the 10 greatest coaches since the foundation of UEFA in 1954. Herrera joined Stade Français for as manager in 1945. After three seasons with no trophies collected, the club's president opted to sell the club. Herrera moved to Spain, where he spent the next six years with Real Valladolid, Atlético Madrid, where he won the championship in 1950 and 1951, CD Málaga, Deportivo de La Coruña and Sevilla, before entering a two-year tenure with Lisbon side Os Belenenses. Later returning to Spain, he managed giants Barcelona, where he won various titles, but several problems, including disagreements between him and star player Ladislao Kubala, forced him to leave the club in 1960. He immediately emigrated to Italy and signed with Internazionale, winning two European Champions Cup in his stay with the club, where he modified a 5–3–2 tactic known as the Verrou (door bolt) to include larger flexibility for counter-attacks – and the Catenaccio was born. The side was later nicknamed Grande Inter, due to the club's successes under Herrera. During this time he was also coaching Spain (between 1959 and 1962) and Italy (1966–67). In 1968, Herrera moved to Roma, where he became the highest paid manager in the world, with a contract worth an estimated £150,000 per year. He won the Coppa Italia in his first season. Can you find the follow in Herrera's footsteps? Challenge Rules 1. Load up France, Italy and Spain Plus one other if desired. 2. You must take up a managerial post in France at a Ligue 1 club not in Europe. 3. You must then move to Spain and win at least 4 League Titles, 1 Spanish Super Cup and 2 Copa del Reys with two different sides. After this has been achieved you must move to Italy and win 3 Serie A titles, 2 Champions Leagues and 2 FIFA World Club Cups and 1 Coppa Italia with two different clubs. 4. Own formations only but you must play with 5 at the back (any combination 5-3-2, 3-2-3-2, 3-3-3-1 etc) 5. No unlockables, edited databases, or use of any of the editors 6. Evidence is required, I'd suggest posting a career thread for us to follow. 7. No cheating - Restarting to avoid injuries counts as cheating!! Leaderboard
  15. 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
  16. 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!
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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...
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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.

  25. 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
