  1. 2050 – Jeonbuk Hyundai Motors FC Manager Profile – Fixtures Competitions – Player Stats – League Table It didn't take long after my resignation at Porto before I found myself employed at a new location. This time I was heading back to Asia and South-Korea to manage Jeonbuk. They were in 4th place after approximately half-played season, and knocked out of the Champions League. Some points behind the leader, but could be possible to close the gap if things go my way. Also qualified for semi-final in the national cup before I arrived. No transfer window this season for me, so need to do the best of what I got. K League Classic: Had to gain some points on the leaders, and didn't manage to close the gap. Ending in 3rd after giving away 2nd place in the final round. Korean FA Cup: 1-0 victory over Busan in semi-final sees us through to the final. We meet league champions Pohang Steelers, and after 1-1 away, we park the bus in the home game with 0-0 to win it on away goals. What more can you ask for? 4 months resulting in a cup victory. That's probably the South-Korean adventure for me. I have finally balanced the domestic cup/league wins, and I'll see to do doubles for the final four checkmarks. Have to do South-Africa next to obtain the last Champions League, and I'll see where I need to go after that in order to easier complete my international trophies. I've also got a job as England manager after the 2050 World Cup. Qualified for semi-finals in European International League, and looking to compete for the European Championship 2052 which will take place in England.

  2. 2049/50 – FC Porto Manager Profile – Fixtures 1 – Fixtures 2 – Fixtures 3 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers There is something about trying to improve after a season like the previous that just doesn't make sense. I'm yet again left with coins for the transfer window and have to make the best out of it. Our hope is to replicate last season and it will be enough to secure some silverware. Primeira Liga: We not only replicate, but actually improve by three points. I usually don't talk about my defense, but we barely let in a goal over the season. 26(!) clean sheets and just 10(!) goals conceded is the foundation of our title. Also helps a lot to beat SL Benfica 0-3 and 1-0. Taca de Portugal: Same procedure as last year; knocked out against Sporting in the semi-finals. They went on to win the cup. Portuguese League Cup: We do the double! Comfortable road to the finals, where a 90th minute equalizer sees us to penalties against SL Benfica. 3-1 after 4 penalties each sees us to victory! European Champions League: We actually do quite well in this competition, with one big exception. Qualifies from the group stages, only to fall short against Barcelona, where we lose 1-0 in both matches. What a year, and how intense this league is. You can easily talk about "the big 4", and you're not really allowed any mistakes to win the league. That SLB-team is just insanely good, and I believe they are the best team in Portugal right now. But we were extremely lucky with injuries, and when you just refuse to concede goals you won't lose many games. There were some great talents in this squad that took the step up when I needed them to. Happy to finally get some fortune on this save. With this I will resign from FCP, and most likely leave Europe for a while. There is a WC now in the summer that might open up a job in international management that I still need, and I might run to South-Africa to get the last Champions League.

  3. 2048/49 – FC Porto Manager Profile – Fixtures 1 – Fixtures 2 – Fixtures 3 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers (Links will be updated at a later time) Back in Portugal after a year in Spain, and Real Madrid. Now at FCP, who won the league the last three years. There is not too much money to handle for the transfer window, but given the fact that they've been best for three consecutive years there shouldn't really be too many needs, right? Primeira Liga: We're not doing too bad, finishing at 81 points. It's around where they've finished point-wise the last years. Unfortunately, SLB are doing better. We were chasing almost the entire season, and in the end we're 7 points behind. 2nd place is not bad, but it's not what I came here for. Taca de Portugal: A cup to forget, knocked out against former employer Sporting in the semi-finals. They went on to win the cup. Portuguese League Cup: The closest to a (counting) trophy I came this year. Gave away an early 2-0 lead only to lose the final on penalties to SLB. Supertaca: The least important one, won against Braga. European Champions League: Knocked out in the group stage. AC Milan and AS Monaco were too tough. Europa League: 3rd place in group stage of Champions League means we qualified for Europa League. It was an experience to forget, as we got knocked out in 2nd KO round by Real San Sebastian. If 2nd place is best loser, at least I'm best at something… Underwhelming season, and this team lacks depth. Luckily I know where to improve, if given the opportunity. Portuguese league should we winnable, and hopefully SLB won't have a season as good as this again. Cups are mostly terrible, and we forget that they existed.

  4. Thanks, Vikeologist. I'm glad you enjoy reading about my failures misfortunes. Jokes aside, I'm glad that this challenge is completed before me. I find inspiration in the Hall of Fame, seeing how some of you kept it going until 2050, 2060, and even longer, still chasing completion. I'm certain that I will complete this challenge now, but it might still take a while.
  5. Exactly. Cups are a special thing where you need to towards your best at each fixture. Single-elimination is tough like that, one loss and you're out. Matchups over 2 legs are better than one leg, but you can still lose it on that one bad involvement. It just doesn't require the same amount of consistency as a league. Two cups gives you two chances to get it, you don't rely on that one opportunity each season. Even better, these small nations don't have a lot of teams so you don't have to go through a lot of rounds to potentially win it.
  6. Good luck, ryanlion28. The 2nd job in my challenge was at Geylang, and I found it to be a great place to manage. The league is quite competitive, and even though Home won the league by a mile this year it doesn't mean anything for next season. Also there are two cups, so chances are you might check off one or two marks for the challenge quickly. Personally I always had problems against Niigata Unicorn when I played in Singapore but they finished below you now. It's more than possible to make a league-winning team with only two foreign players, but you need to choose them wisely.
  7. 2047/48 – Real Madrid Manager Profile – Fixtures 1 – Fixtures 2 – Fixtures 3 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers While looking to improve my Sporting squad for the season, the job at Real Madrid opened up. I applied and got it, so this season is with them. And what a ride it would be. A badly-rounded squad where half of them is closing in on retirement is what awaited me, and a transfer budget that didn't really had room for much improvement. Signed a Portuguese back-up CB for free and a AMR for £10M before the season started, where the AMR was signed to replace a player that wanted to leave (but nobody wanted to buy apparently). A couple of recruits from Castilla and my U19 team was the solution to be able to make a somewhat rounded squad, and we we're just looking to do the best out of it. We are predicted 3rd this season, so it could become a project for a couple of seasons to win the much needed title. La Liga: Well, what a ride it was. Starting out with El Derbi Madrileño followed by El Clásico, we were in for a tough start. Got 2 points out of them, and figured I should be happy with it. Then followed a sequence of great results, but we were placed 2nd for most of the season; behind Sevilla. Going into the final few games it was a tight 3-horse race between Sevilla, Barcelona and us. At some point in the penultimate round we were placed 3rd, but we turned it around and got the title. Spanish Cup: This two-legs matches in the beginning are quite annoying when you are much better than the opponent. Got to the quarter finals winning 9-0 and 6-0 over two games, but in the quarter finals we got knocked out. 1-0 and 0-1 against Atletico Madrid saw us out after a penalty shootout. European Champions League: Knocked out in the group stage. Leipzig beat us twice, and Marseille had a better goal difference in the end. Europa League: 3rd place in group stage of Champions League means we qualified for Europa League. Had an amazing run and got to the final, where the best match have to be 7-0 against Ajax. Lyon beat us 3-0 in the final, so finished 2nd. A bit unexpected to win the league, specially since we were placed 2nd most of the season, alternating between 1 and 7 points behind Sevilla. But since I got it, I see no reason to stay at Real Madrid anymore. I didn't win the cup here, but since it's not a requirement for the challenge I think I will take it somewhere else. Spain is probably one of the most competitive nations right now, and I think there is better hope at some other country. The European Championship is coming up this summer, so hopefully there will open up a spot managing a great nation after this, (hopefully one that qualified for Confed.), else Asian Cup is next year. Will look out for international management in the coming time, as well as I'll load up South Africa to prepare for the last Champions League.

  8. Well, I won't stay at Sporting for next season. Finally had a successful interview at a Spanish club, and Finally I landed a job in Spain, and it's with Real Madrid. Gap up to Barcelona from last season is quite big, but should be able to win La Liga within a couple of seasons at least. Hopefully it won't be a new experience like I had at Manchester City where Chelsea were unreal season after season and I had to spend way too much time to win the Premier League.
  9. 2046/47 – Sporting CP Manager Profile – Fixtures 1 – Fixtures 2 – Fixtures 3 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers Still no opening in Spain, but at least I found my way to the Iberian peninsula. Never actually managed in Portugal before, so when I found an opening in what I think is one of the top clubs I jumped at it. There are some talent in the squad, but I there is an overweight of attacking players (AMs and strikers) while I don't really have a lot of options at defense and midfield (DM, CM). Tried to find some gems in the transfer window, but couldn't get as well-rounded squad as I would have wanted. We're suggested to finish 3rd behind FCP and SLB, but I hope to challenge for higher. Primeira Liga: We're doing OK in periods, but fall apart in other periods. Really rollercoaster, and in the end we're closer to finishing 7th than 2nd. Not what I hoped for, but we were really struggling to produce results for periods so 3rd is probably the best we could hope for with such varying results. Taca de Portugal: Easy through to semi-final, where we met SLB. 0-0 after game 1 and losing 1-0 in the 2nd leg after an own goal in the 88th minute. Representative for the season seen under one how we went out here. League Cup: Semi final again. Out against FCP. They were better than us. European Champions League: The one tournament I don't care about, and the one tournament where we produce one good result after another. Beat Zenit and Club Brugge to qualify for group stages, where we're up against Man. Utd, Wolfsburg and Steaua Bucuresti. Tough group where I think we realistically should get 3rd, but an amazing start with a win against Man. Utd followed by draw against Wolfsburg makes us top of group 2 games in. 4 points against Bucuresti followed by a loss against Man. Utd. means we need a point in final game to qualify. Win against Wolfsburg and we're through the group stage. Then we somehow beat Monaco in the 2nd round, before meeting Chelsea in quarter finals. 1-1 in both legs, 1-1 in extra time and unfortunately we had home ground for 2nd leg so they go through on away goals after extra time (what an absolutely ridiculous rule…). Overachieved a lot here. Not a season I would've wanted, and my best players will probably leave after the season. I don't know if I'll stay or go elsewhere right now, but if I stay something drastic have to be done to the player material.

  10. Their players are great, but I thought ours were that as well. I think it's just one of those things.. Might just be so that they are good against the system I play. I never liked changing up a system within a team according to who I play, but can play different systems at different teams (you know, adapting to the player material). Over the 3 times they now beat me, I don't think we had our best games, but that can't be a coincident anymore. They really did neutralize us, even though I felt like we should win the WC one considering we played 1 man more for a while and gave it away on a stupid penalty in the end. Looking at it now, I really don't know what nation I should hope for next. Turned down England and France while I still had the Spain job, so I don't think those opportunities will present themselves again. Hopefully something will open up soon, so the entire challenge won't be reduced to me having to win international competitions in the end.
  11. 2046 – World Cup Losing out on confederations cup and a poor performance in the nations league meant that I probably had to perform well this time around if I were to stay with Spain until Euros 2048. Annoyingly I had to go into the tournament without my no. 1 striker, but I had hopes that the replacement would do well in his place. Group stage 2nd round (if applicable) Quarter finals (if applicable) Semi finals (if applicable) Final / 3rd place play-off (if applicable) Man of the tournament: Juan Manuel. Only consistent performer. Delivered a couple of goals and assists, and got us as far as we did. As I feared, quarter finals in the WC is not good enough. Sacked after the tournament. Will hold off international management until one of the prime jobs opens up now. Might have to skip the Euros 2048, but we'll se what comes up. Final game of the tournament was between England and Scotland(!). England won the tournament, making them world champions for the 3rd time (1966, 2022, 2046).

  12. 2045/46 – Club Necaxa Manager Profile – Fixtures 1 – Fixtures 2 Competitions – Player Stats – Transfers Since it proved difficult to land a top club job in La Liga, I decided to look elsewhere for a while. When I found the job at Necaxa available I just had to apply. The 'Apertura' (Opening stage) was almost completed (played 14 out of 17 games) and they were already qualified for the play-offs. Also qualified for semi-final of the Apertura Mexican Cup, because for some reason they split both league and cup in the Apertura and Clausura. The perfect opportunity to get a couple of quick trophies, and luckily I got the job. Liga BBVA MX Apertura: As mentioned, we were already qualified for play-offs as I was hired. Finished first in the qualifying league, after taking 6 points in my 3 games before play-offs. Beat Monterrey 4-1 on aggregate in quarter finals before I knocked out Atlas on away goals in a 1-1 draw in the semi finals to see us to the finals. After a 4-0 win in the first match against Pumas, we saw the league title in with a 4-1 in total. Qualified for 2046 NACL. Copa MX Apertura: First match for me at Necaxa was the semi-final against Querétaro, which we won 2-0. The final against Morelia were won comfortably 3-0 after Morelia got 2 men sent off during the match. Liga BBVA MX Clausura: Having won the opening stage, I figured we should focus more on the NACL than the league this time around. Got to the play offs after a tight race for the 6 last spots. Lost in quarter finals against Cruz Azul. NACL: Easy victory over Isidro Metapán in the first round, before we knocked Veracruz out on a 1-0 aggregate in quarter finals. Up against Tigres, which at that time were impossible to beat in the league, in the semis. A great 3-1 win away in first match was enough to see us to the final with a 3-2 win in total. Final against Morelia was tough after a 0-0 draw away, knowing that I had to win at home. Last game was moved (…) due to the Clausura quarter finals, but when we finally got there we got the 2-1 win. What was an amazing opportunity turned out to be an amazing season. Happy to now conclude the North-American part of this challenge, with NACL secured. I really found some great players in this squad, and 5-6 of my starting 11 is under bids and/or rumored to go to top clubs in Europe since I got here. Happy that I got to keep everyone for this season, as it wouldn't have happened if I lost them. Will now resign as there is nothing more to achieve here, and search again for a job in Spain. Also loaded up Australia and South-Korea now, but that's mostly to stabilize the leagues and try to generate players in a hope to challenge for Asian Cup at some point. Either way, next up is the WC with Spain, where we're looking to defend the title from 4 years ago (or, you know, don't get fired so I can stay for Euros…).

  13. I hope so. Still have the Spain job, and figured there might be hope for another go on the two tournaments in 3 years time. Only problem is that I need to survive the World Cup 2046. To make matters even worse, I decided to manage Spain U23 in the Olympic Games myself instead of getting some AI to do it. Both to see what talent there is for next generation of first team players, but also as a go for the Olympic Games trophy (which does not count towards the challenge, but why not try and get it when you have the chance?). Ended up 2nd(…) losing the final to France on penalty shoot-outs after being 2-0 up earlier in the match. Gives me 2nd place in 3 different international competitions(!) in the span of a year Edit: Also at a new club job (finally…), and within 4 games I already checked off a new mark on the way to completing the challenge. Update will follow at the end of the season.
  14. 2045 – Confederations Cup No new club job as my interviews at both Real Madrid and Sevilla were unsuccessful, so summer 2045 came quite quickly now. It's time for the Confederations Cup! Group stage Semi finals (if applicable) Final / 3rd place play-off (if applicable) Man of the tournament: Spain. Yup, the entire team. Can't pick one outstanding player when we don't win the one game that matters. Instead of winning the tournament we did however win the Fair Play award. That has to count for something, right?

  15. That's harsh, but wouldn't it be possible to load back Asian nations to manage? Still crazy to be left with only two international competitions like that. Problem with the continental tournaments is that they only come every 4 years, meaning I'm looking at minimum 5 more years in international managements given that I actually win everything at next possible opportunity (Confed. 2045 if I can stay at Spain, Euros 2048, Asian Cup 2049). Would really like to have all these checked off before I complete the club management requirements, which I hopefully can be within 2055. It's by far the save I've gone most seasons in, and there are still many left...
