  1. @_JHTB_ I thought that I'd be able to better the 22 clean sheets you've entered in the Records Thread, (thanks for that by the way), but no. 22 is pretty good.
  2. You're lucky if international football only adds a decade on to the challenge for you, though given that I last achieved this challenge with FM15, international football has now added half an actual decade for me. I mean, it was FM18 where I achieved the club side, and had to give up the international side after 20 more years, so I suppose it's only added 2 so far.
  3. Just padding out the thread, but my 4 time MVP at Everton Christopher McKay might be on the move again. I bought him for £20million, but after I left Everton he was sold for a then world record £196 million to Real Madrid. That record was broken less than a year later by the worst transfer ever when Real sold a striker to Man City for £197million. Aparisi wouldn't even make it into my first XI at Dortmund.
  4. Vikeologist's Dortmund (and Argentina) 2030/31 Season Report Back in Black, but mostly yellow, at Dortmund. Of course they’re nothing like my previous black and yellow clad warriors at Folkestone, but then they’re not that much like Everton either. One of the challenging things about this, erm, challenge is going from being the manager of the best club team and best international team in the world, to being in charge of a Dortmund team that are, well, not the best in the world. I even bought a couple of Argentina players in, and they struggled in their new inferior surroundings. We couldn’t keep up with Bayern in the league, but 2nd place was never in any doubt. To be honest, I gave up too easily. We might have caught them if I hadn't instant resulted some of the final matches. I thought we stood a good chance in the cup, but we went out on penalties to Leipzig in a semi-final we dominated. Thus we underperformed against the expectations of the board who demanded the league title and a cup final. My job might have been in trouble had we not done well in the Europa League, which was of course of no real interest to me. In the final we had the chance of revenge against RB Leipzig, who despite their cup final achievements, only finished 10th in the league. Like the German Cup semi-final, we were the better team, but could only establish a 1-0 lead, and they equalised in the 89th minute. Extra time didn’t solve anything, so penalties again. But this time it was Leipzig who missed one penalty, and the Europa League was ours. At least the trophy kept me in my job. Top Goalscorer – Jonathan David – 29 It really should have been Eduardo Salvatierra, my best Argentinian striker who I bought for what I thought was a bargain £39 million, but he only scored 19 goals all season for us. JD should be the striker to drop when I bring in a much needed upgrade this season, but he did have a good season. Highest Average Rating (minimum 10 matches played) – Juan Manuel Jiménez – 7.74 The right winger was the best player I inherited, and despite spending a lot of money, he still is my best player. Man of The Match – Juan Manuel Jiménez - 9 Most Valuable Player– Juan Manuel Jiménez It’s not going to help me decide my all challenge XI to have right wingers as my MVPs every season. It would be nice to have a good left winger for once. My left wingers are rubbish. I actually brought in Everton’s 3rd best left winger on loan, who actually did well, so that’s another position I need to address over the summer. As for Argentina, we’re just playing meaningless friendlies waiting for the World Cup Qualifying to start, which will only be marginally less meaningless.

  5. I was referring to this; As for suggestions, come back to the Ultimate Challenge. We miss you.
  6. @thomas_e Well done. Glad to have company on the Hall of Fame, but doing it with South Shields is a fantastic achievement. If I'd had a Bob Dolan on my team, I'd have been making so many Bob Dylan jokes to see if people noticed. I'd love to see your team's all time stats (Players / Stats / Competitions / All Time). Are you relieved that the challenge os completed, or do you want to go on with South Shields even longer?
  7. Nope, they're not going to forget about it. S Korea is brutal (or at least has been in past incarnations). Win or be sacked, so historically speaking they've been quite lenient with you. It's entirely possible that the only domestic teams I've been sacked from in this challenge are S Korean or Mexican. Honestly can't remember any others, but I do remember winning a cup with Cruz Azul, and then immediately being sacked.

  9. Now I need to goad the Youth Challenge people into posting by entering my semi-impressive player career records. Let's see if they notice.
  10. I don;t suppose I could persuade you to enter some of your records into the records thread. Think you've beaten all the ones I just entered a few days ago for a 38 match league campaign.
  11. Vikeologist's Argentina 2030 World Cup Report No suitable club jobs came up, so here we are already. So 4 years ago, I made it to the semi finals with Uruguay, and frankly we could have won it because all the top nations went out. Argentina are magnitudes better, but after winning every match my first year, we’ve not been as good in the lead up to this tournament. We could win it, but the important thing is to make it to the Q/F so that I’m still here in 2 years time for the Copa America. Group Stage Argentina 3-1 Russia Argentina 6-2 Japan I played my reserves against Japan. 2nd Round (if applicable) 3rd Round (if applicable) Quarter Final (if applicable) Semi Final (if applicable) 3rd Place Playoff / Final (if applicable) After The Tournament
  12. Vikeologist's Everton (and Argentina) 2028/29 Report Arsenal ruined a perfect season. They inflicted our only league defeat, and also beat us in our 6th straight Carabao Final But that was it. Apart from a fairly meaningless defat to Milan in the Champions League group stage we won everything else during the regular season; League, 3rd straight FA Cup (against Arsenal – nice), Champions League, and of course the Charity Shield and European Super Cup. I’m still not in the Worldwide Hall of Fame. That’s not really a surprise. One doesn’t normally get into it in this challenge because you tend to move on from a club after winning a couple of things. One of you got into it recently and I was surprised, but having won so much with Everton, I should get into it soon. Maybe very soon. Because all of my trophies this season were just meaningless prologue. I stayed the whole season for 2 reasons; to win the Club World Cup, (and because Real Madrid, PSG and Bayern all made the mistake of not hiring me last summer. Bayern actually turned me down again during the CWC. Admittedly in the interview I said that I would only take over after the ‘World Cup’. Honestly I’m not sure if this referred to the CWC or the international one. I only said this to Bayern in order to find out which it meant). So, screw it. Let’s do a Vikeologist's Everton 2029 Club World Championship Report Group Stage Everton 5-0 NYCFC Everton 8-0 Beijing I could have run the scores up here, especially against Beijing, but most players go into the CWC tired, so I played ultra defensive for most of the matches. A really tough match against PSG in the quarter finals just 2 days later, but then again, with 8 European teams in the competition, it could be worse. Quarter Final (if applicable) Semi Final (if applicable) 3rd Place Playoff / Final (if applicable) After The Tournament Top Goalscorer – Dylan Munro – 37 Was second before the CWC to my 3rd choice striker, partly because of injuries, but 7 goals in the 5 matches elevated him to his natural place. Highest Average Rating (minimum 10 matches played) – Christopher McKay - 7.73 Stat taken after 1st CWC match before nation reset. 32 assists. Man of The Match – Mc Kay / Romário Baró - 8 Most Valuable Player– Christopher McKay He’s been my MVP 4 of the last 5 seasons. I'm also manager of Argentina. We've won all 8 of the World Cup Qualifiers since I took over, and have qualified already. Roll on next summer.
