  1. If I ever finish my Ultimate Challenge run with FM17 i will buy a new FM and give this a try
  2. Whatever you feel like! There are few ways to tackle this challenge. One option is to load only one league to maximize your chances to get a job in a top flight as soon as possible. For example just load the South African premier league. Or then just build your career from lower leagues (the more realistic way). Personally i loaded a bunch of leagues and my first job was with Carlisle.
  3. IT JUST WAS NOT MEANT TO BE! I lost to Ivory Coast and Mexico in Confederations Cup and that does it. I waited for this opportunity for so long with the national team that kickstarted my career back in 2020 when I lead Croatia to win the Euro and later on won my second World Cup in 2030 with them. But we failed in the Confederations Cup BUT! I have some good news also. My gig at Celtic was short. On July 2033 I am appointed as manager of PSG. Nice! Though I managed to build a team that could have gone unbeaten in Scotland...

  4. After a short visit in South Africa I have been looking for good job opportunities but nothing much has happened. Then I noticed Celtic, they were out of Premiership contention but still in top4 of the Scottish Cup with Rangers already out. That's an easy trophy I thought and it was! https://imgur.com/a/3fVjTnZ Next up Confederations Cup 2033 with Croatia!

  5. So nice to see people make progress in this challenge! I am also managing new club but my pace to play is so slow
  6. @vikeologist i am at 12 trophies
  7. Good luck for the challenge @theonets its a fun one, just remember to enjoy your career and not to stress So my season 31/32 ended will in Argentina and I was able to resign from River Plate after just one year in the position Currently im preparing for Confederations Cup with Croatia and looking for opportunities to manage a team that can win a league. Few clubs have approached me, but nothing special yet. Milan would be interesting (my favourite club) as they are struggling at the moment. Currently I have a job offer from Celtic and it could be a good place to manage a year and look if any of the big european clubs get into trouble or manager roulette spins so that interesting positions become available.
  8. A SHORT VISIT TO SOUTH AMERICA Oh wow! I got what I wanted in about 1 year! I started in River Plate in 19/4/2031. The team was struggling and I barely managed to finish 6th in the Primera Division, but the club was in the Copa Libertadores. I made it my main goal to win Copa Libertadores in 2031 as the club wouldn't be in it in 2032 as the previous manager wasn't able to be competitive in season 30/31. During the summer transfer window i splashed the cast to get the necessary players in order to play the same possession based defensive tactics Ive used during the whole challenge. Libertadores was hard but we made it. We had to beat three brazilian teams (including a very strong Flamengo) in the way. League was easy. 17 conceded goals in 38 games, our gk made some sort of record by keeping clean sheet 28 times. In Club World Cup we weren't competitive, but I played my reserves there anyways. Next up EURO 2032 with Croatia, maybe I manage to bring another win for Croatia? https://imgur.com/H2NL0WN https://imgur.com/98vsaNA Season Team Position Champs League Notes and Achievements ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 16/17 Carlisle 7th Sky Bet League 2 Lost in playoffs rnd 1 17/18 Carlisle 1st Sky Bet League 2 Promotion 18/19 Middlesbrough 2nd Championship Promotion 19/20 Middlesbrough 5th Premier League EC slot 21/22 New England Revolution MLS resigned 22/23 Orlando Pirates 1st ABSA Premiership runner-up in CAF Confederations Cup 23/24 Orlando Pirates 1st ASBA Premiership Won CAF CL Won MTN8Cup 24/25 Orlando Pirates resigned in January Won Telkom Knockout 25/26 Real Betis 1st Liga Adelante Won promotion 26/27 Real Betis 13th Liga BBVA 27/28 Liverpool 6th Premier League EC slot 28/29 Liverpool 2nd Premier League Won FA CUP & EUROPA LEAGUE 29/30 Liverpool 1st Premier League Won CL Won Capital One Cup & Community Shield 30/31 Liverpool Got sacked in January Won Club World Cup, Community Shield & UEFA Super Cup 30/31 River Plate 6th Primera Div Appointed as a manager in April 31/32 River Plate 1st Primera Div Won CL International: Season Team Notes and Achievements: --------------------------------------------------------- 2020 Croatia Won European Championship 2022 Spain Won World Cup 2024 Spain Top4 in European Championship, got sacked 2026 Ivory Coast Group stage 3rd in World Cup 2027 Ivory Coast Won Africa Cup of Nations 2030 Croatia Won World Cup Challenge Progress 12/33 Club 3/10 top domestic leagues (ABSA Premiership 22/23/Orlando Pirates, Premier League 29/30/Liverpool, Primera Division 31/32/River Plate) 2/10 domestic cups (Telkom Knockout 24/25/Orlando Pirates, FA CUP 28/29/Liverpool) 3/5 club continental championships (CAF CL 23/24/Orlando Pirates, Champions League 29/30/Liverpool, Copa Libertadores 2031/River Plate) 1/1 club world championship (2030/2031/Liverpool) International 2/5 continental tournaments (European Championship 2020/Croatia, Africa Cup of Nations 2027/Ivory Coast) 1/2 world tournaments (World Cup 2022/Spain)
  9. No. Good catch though Im from Finland and should support our almost fellow neighbours, but Croatia is my team this summer and I was happy to seem them through. What a thriller it was! Yeah my players missed three consecutive penalties in the Primera Division, but in the fourth game my gk made a penalty save in Copa Libertadores. It's not a good conversation rate but i take it! edit. Croatia has also been integral part of my "success" in this challenge btw
  10. My players have missed THREE consecutive pens in three games
  11. Found it! This was from page 66, so I've had a nice break here between Well now im on summer holiday and hoping to play thru 1 or 2 seasons. After the sacking from Liverpool I managed to secure a role as a manager of River Plate in April. River Plate won the Primera Division in 29/30 but ended up in 6th position in 30/31. For season 31/32 its playing in the Copa Libertadores (which is my target here) but for season 32/33 River Plate will be in the tier2 continental competition. So I will need to focus heavily on Libertadores this year!!
  12. Ok so Libertadores is the "Champions League" and Sudamerica is "Europa League" in a sense.. Well we are in Libertadores this season and next season we will be on Sudamerica. So if I don't win Libertadores now it will take me few seasons at least...
  13. Got a new job from River Plate. What are the competitions I should aim there? Copa Libertadores or Sudamericana?
  14. Thanks. Now to tackle some other top tier leagues! And Im also still in Croatia as I won the world cup so I have a chance to enter the Confederations Cup 2033...
  15. FIFA CLUB WORLD CUP CHAMPIONS! Finally the competition I was looking forward to! This was my second shot at the title (tho to be realistic I didn't really have a chance with Orlando Pirates). Easy 4-0 win in the semis against ES Tunis and a tight battle in the finals against FLA (Flamengo?) which I managed to win 1-0. After the tournament I pushed a new contract for myself and leaked the refusal to the press, well that got me sacked Hopefully my sacking leads to some movement in the manager market...
