    Dafuge's Challenge - King's Lynn - Dorey, Neil and Bowen, living legends!
  1. After completing Dafuge's challenge a few times I fancy something a bit different, so will be giving this a go in Ireland. Holidaying now...
  2. Thanks! It's not about the destination, it's all about the journey!
  3. Gypsum's End of season update - King's Lynn - 2033/34 - Premier league Challenge completed!! League position:1st (Position chart) Media prediction: 2nd Man City's managerial changed proved to be the window of opportunity we needed to make a charge for the top. Even the resurgence on Man Utd couldn't stop us from breaking the 15 year Manc stranglehold on the league title. Champions league: Winners! Final: King's Lynn 1-0 Man City League cup: Winners! Final: King's Lynn 2-1 West Ham Squad Transfers Finances Star players; Todd Low - Best season yet, absolutely on fire in front of goal, breaking records all over the place. Dylan Coupe - One of my original big money signings, sensational again. Tristan Riviere - A £54m signing and worth every penny. Sensational in my full back dependent tactics. Emmanuel Leclerc - A real success story, despite being signed as just a backup. Has developed into an irreplaceable playmaker. File - Excellent in midfield, and out best set-piece taker.

  4. Yeah, I always stay on. Quite fancy trying to build an entirely home-grown team.
  5. It went down to the final game and a 1 point lead, but... Challenge completed!!
  6. His call up is especially unlikely as he has two caps for Wales.
  7. Don't do a Wenger, don't do a Wenger...
  8. Well, at least someone enjoyed it! I'm in North Cambs, Wisbech to be precise.
  9. Yeah! I put out a load of my youth players and we lost 1-0 to BSP Cambridge!
  10. Gypsum's End of season update - King's Lynn - 2032/33 - Premier league League position: 2nd (Position chart) Media prediction: 3rd Another strong season, but we couldn't get close to the mighty Man City. But with Klopp's retirement, and a new man in charge, hopefully they will show some vulnerabilities and allow me to complete the challenge! We also won the Club world championship, Community shield and the Super cup. Champions league: Winners! Final: King's Lynn 0-0 (5-3P) Man Utd For all Man City's dominance in the league, we absolutely smashed them in the semi-final first leg. The final was a much tighter affair, with our players not really hitting their stride. But ruthlessness from the spot won us our second straight Champions league title. The perfect send off for the retiring legends Dorey and Neil. League Cup: Winners! Final: Chelsea 0-6 King's Lynn Humiliated Chelsea at Wembley, though they are a shadow of their former selves post-Abramovich. Squad Transfers Finances Star players; Emmanuel Leclerc - Another stunning season from the man originally signed only as a backup squad member. Todd Low - Really hit his peak in the Champions league, winning the best player, top scorer and best goal awards. Tyler Jones - Our Welsh rock at the heart of the defence. Jermain Flemming - He continues to develop and impress, finished 3rd top scorer in the Premiership.

  11. They've dipped to 11th after reaching the Euro 2023 semi-finals, but they're a decent side. Three of my back four were Welsh internationals. The Welsh league sides seem to be churning out good prospects.
  12. Barry George Bowen obviously doesn't have OCD. Yeah, and those two lost FA cup finals in recent years really added to the satisfaction!!
  13. Gypsum's End of season update - King's Lynn - 2031/32 - Premier league League position: 2nd (Position chart) Media prediction: 5th A valiant run ended without us able to make up the 2 point defect to Man City, last season's invincibles. But we are clearly gaining ground. Champions league: Winners! Final: Juventus 1-2 King's Lynn A sensational run which saw us hammer Barcelona and Bayern ended in imperious fashion. Even an equaliser from former Linnet Couto just before half time didn't halt our momentum, as we dominated in a 2-1 victory. FA Cup: Winners! Final: King's Lynn 3-0 Man Utd League cup: Winners! Final: King's Lynn 3-0 Tottenham Squad Transfers Finances Star players; Emmanuel Leclerc - MC - The surprise of the season. Signed on a free after a loan move from PSG to Norwich, he stepped in to the first team as an injury replacement and made the central playmaker role his own. Jermain Flemming - ST - The more technical foil to Low's sheer pace, Flemming had a breakout season, proving particularly effective in the domestic cup finals. Dylan Coupe - DL - Didn't impress last season after his £21m move from Fulham, but was excellent in this campaign. Todd Low - ST - Fast as f@*k and absoluetly tireless. Top scorer in the Champions league, and 2nd in the Premiership. File - MC - One of our few new signings, proved an excellent addition to our creative midfield trio. Tyler Jones - DC -Tragically missed the Champions league final, despite an excellent season.

  14. Big season, challenge half-complete! Update to come later.
  15. Having a pretty mental season. Won the League cup, into the final of the FA Cup thanks to a penalty win from a last-minute equaliser! In the Champions league semi-finals after hammering Barcelona 5-1, and just a point behind Man City in the league title race, with a game in hand, thanks to this awesome comeback!
