Well done Mikey :thup: I can't get onto FM atm because I'm at my girlfriends house (and for some absurd reason she doesn't have FM 08) so I can't put your challenge up but I'll put it on tomorrow when I get back homeif that's alright.

What is that women thinking ;)

I think it should have been me that did better, instead of you doing worse. Losing to romania was definitely shocking

you cant have teams added part way through a challenge your probably only asking because you already have a save game where you have done it with them.

nah, i just like the thought of playing as tottenham instead as they are my second favourite team :D
oh well, suppose i'll be pompey :)

roberto922
30-07-2008, 22:47
And beat Utd in the Semi Final, wise choice :D

Dale0718
31-07-2008, 13:16
playing as pompey is great :D
i'm 6th in the league with 26 points from 15 games, but i'm 12 points behind leaders man united.
However, my highlight of the season is thrashing chelsea 4-1 at home with Defoe scoring a hattrick :)
Defoe has now got another hattrick against sunderland :D
he's the leagues top scorer with 15 goals!
Thanks for giving me this challenge Roberto :D

Adam C
31-07-2008, 13:33
Well, I have 5 games left of the season, and we're shortly behind 1st place. We're still in the race for the title :D

EDIT: Was 3 points behind 1st before 3rd last game of the season. Then played top place, and won 2-1 :D :D :D!
Now Im 2nd by Goal difference with 2 games remaining!

Adam C
31-07-2008, 14:25
Adam C vs GlennUk

Aach no Laddie (I know it's a terrible title )

German Second Division

Nice simple challenge, take over Aachen in the German second division and take them up, no other competition matters unless it's a cup win because the fans want first division football and won't be happy until they're there.

Scoring system:

Win the Second Division - nope
2nd Place - 75 Points - http://s250.photobucket.com/albums/gg255/siradamc/?action=view&current=table.jpg Yay, some points lol
3rd Place - nope
4th Place - nope
5th or Lower - nope

Win the German Cup - nope
Reach the final - nope
Lower - nope

Win the League Cup - nope
Reach the final - nope
Lower - nope

Bonus Points:

Score over 75 goals in the league - nope
Keep a minimum of 15 Clean Sheets in the league - nope
One of your players scores more than 25 goals in the league - nope
Reduce the wage bill to under 100k p/w - nope
Maintain a bank balance of over 4 million - nope

So all in all, I got 75 points.

rancer890
31-07-2008, 20:20
Brief Arsenal Update

I'm in January now, and I think I can't win the EPL title:( (10pts behind Man Utd)

I think the only goals I can do are:


win FA Cup (but still only in 4th Round, against QPR)
win Carling Cup (leading Reading 1-0 in the semis going into 2nd leg)
achieve bank balance of at least 100,000,000 (I already have over US$250 million)
keep wage bill below 700,000 p/w - if I sell a couple more players (like Almunia, Song, Flamini, and maybe Gallas, who makes US$7 million a year)


The 'maybe' goals:


25 clean sheets (currently only have 13)

Already accomplished goals:


Sagna - French caps (he now has 2:))

roberto922
31-07-2008, 20:25
Looking good rancer, I've pulled back from 20 odd points behind before so I'm sure you can do it :thup: good luck.

wakko jakko
31-07-2008, 20:38
Not too sure now if i can complete a week's challenge in only a few days. I can still try to if the person i am against is unhappy about it but preferably I would wait till i'm back before having a go at a new challenge. Like I said though, I'm just trying to be fair so if there are any problems I could try and attempt it but it wouldn't be ideal at all.

roberto922
31-07-2008, 20:43
Due to the fact that we're going on to qualifiers on Sunday 10th August that is the absolute latest I can accept your challenges.

roberto922
31-07-2008, 20:44

Arsenal in the Carling Cup Final against......Everton:D

Dale0718
31-07-2008, 21:28
Brief Pompey update:


I'm at February 17th at the moment and i'm currently 5th in the league, however chelsea have a game in hand on me so they could ultimately move into 5th 2 points above me.
Jermaine Defoe is currently on 30 goals in 33 games :)
Hopefully i could scrape into the top 4 come start of March as Man City are only 2 points above me :)

Other goals:
I beat Chelsea 4-1 so i manged to get the beat the big 4 points!
i also have 48 goals in the league with 26 games played so i can hopefully get the 75 goals in league goal :D

Also, i got knocked out of the league cup in the quarter final losing on penalties against Newcastle. So no points for me in that goal.
I'm still in the FA cup at the moment, i'm in the 5th round replay against Sunderland.

roberto922
31-07-2008, 21:34
OOH YOU DARE! lol 3rd time lucky for Everton hopefully :D

roberto922
31-07-2008, 21:53
Lmfao I did it radomly and you're managing a nation again, unlucky mate (if this carries on you won't believe that it's random lol)

Right then I'll post it here for you. This will involve a bit of holidaying to get it done quicker (please don't holiday through matches) but I thought it'd be better than having to do another Euro 2008.

Btw Man U king PaulHartman dropped out and I took his place but jesus christ I got some catching up to do to beat you. I'm finally getting into my Brann season but I gota win all 3 competitions to win! I'm surprised you sold some of their good players too.

weeeman27bob
02-08-2008, 15:04
When are the next challenges coming out roberto?

roberto922
02-08-2008, 15:07
Midnight, I fell asleep earlier so I didn't inish them.

weeeman27bob
02-08-2008, 15:13
Rapid reply roberto! Just as a point of interest you know on my story, you said you'd written 6 pages in word. Well by the time i reached my 6th page on word ( i don't write it on word) i hadn't even got the job yet.

Anyway i was wondering about the next challenges because i've written quite a lot of my story today and it seems to be the only thing i'm doing on fm at the moment.

roberto922
02-08-2008, 15:15
I got to the job pretty quick, I'm only on the 12th July now.

roberto922
02-08-2008, 15:30
I'm getting a bit worried about repetitiveness now, all the jobs are basically win the title, avoid relegation, win Euro 2008. I'm looking forward to the 1/4 finals though when we move away from Europe :D

wakko jakko
02-08-2008, 15:32
Finally got my challenge's first games underway but unfortunately they didn't go according to plan :(

Game 1- vs. Aalesund: http://i309.photobucket.com/albums/kk374/Jakk0/1stgameofseason.jpg
Suppose it was the first game to break the ice but I was embarrassed just watching.

Game 2- vs. AK Start: http://i309.photobucket.com/albums/kk374/Jakk0/2ndgameofseason.jpg
I made around 7 changes, completely disregarding the ass.manager's advice and it payed dividends. I should really trust my own judgement instead of ******** AI assistants in the future :P

Game 3- vs. the mighty Rosenborg: http://i309.photobucket.com/albums/kk374/Jakk0/3rdgameofseason2.jpg

They were so damn lucky to get the 3 points, even the neutrals were bemused. Now 11th in the Prem division but I think we're in our stride now so look out Man U King!

mikeytwigge
02-08-2008, 15:35
ive laid down the gauntlet for glenuk in his next challenge

roberto922
02-08-2008, 15:37
You can holiday between matches to speed things up if you want Jakko, just don't send Glennuk mad by holidaying THROUGH matches.

wakko jakko
02-08-2008, 15:45
Lol, I wont its ok. Btw, how many other challenges apart from the norweigen one do I have to complete by next sunday?

this is LIVE , (as I pause it after each goal to write it down lol)

Unirei's Danalache steps up... scores! 1-0 down...
My star striker Bucur smashes it into the corner! 1-1 !
Aldea walks to the ball and... slots it home! 2-1 down...
My young winger steps up... and blazez it over the bar! 2-1 down.... Too much pressure on him I guess...
Their centre back makes no mistake and gets his goal... 3-1 down. not looking good.
My centre back shows he can do it too and cooly makers it 3-2. 3-2 down
Their 31 year old striker shows his experience and Gives Unirea a great chance by converting the penalty. 4-2 down. Now i must score.
Luckily enough I have my veteran 32 year old right back taking this penalty and and shows he feels no pressure by putting it right down the middle. 4-3
if they score, they win..... Apostrol for Unirea steps up... SAVED! 4-3 still, now we've just got to score to still be in it...
27 year old centre back Canu easily slots his pnealty into the bac of the net. 4-4 now... Anyone can win....
Their striker Onofras makes no mistake and puts the pressure back onto us... 5-4.
Our 26 year old left back and steps up, not looking confident... and It's an EASY SAVE! 5-4 to Unirea. We're out.


Ah well, could've been worse. At least that's 15 extra points. (Screenie will be given END of season.)
