Murrayzoster's Old Firm Take Them To The Top Of The World Challenge (FM 08)

63 posts in this topic

The Background

Rangers and celtic have today completed there transfer to the english league. The only problem is they have to start at the lowest league possible. There bank balances have been wiped and will not compete in the champiopns league. There youth and training are set to 1 and have no youth academy. There reputation is 1000. The plus side is that staff and players will remain. How long will it take you to rise to the top?

The Aim

To take rangers or celtic from the Blue Square N/S to Premier League and Champions League glory.

The Rules

Load a game with the English and Scottish leagues only, with the Blue Square N/S selected, a large database (or smaller if preferred) and the attribute masking and the transfer boxes ticked. No additional players from any nation should be loaded. It should look like this.

Add a new manager, the options are up to you but 'past experience' must be set to the lowest possible.
You Can Choose Any Nationality You Want.

It is now up to you to manage this club all the way to the Premier League title and UEFA Champions League crown.

If you are sacked you must then wait to the end of the season to retake over the club. You must then again start with the lowest past experiance.

Can You Complete The Challenge?

(This is based on the dafuge challenge)

You also have to post your manager profile at the start and give reguarly updates. You may not use fmm or any sort of save game editor or scout program

I Will Take It :P
The Only Problem is trying to keep the players at your team and have a big enough squad as you have no youth teams :O

No, it isn't. I believe it was PM7 himself who did this a while back on FMS. And stop using a capital letter at the beginning of each word. It's even more annoying than text speak.

The Old Firm are two hugely supported clubs, surely common sense would say that pretty much anything that can be done with them has been at some point.

And I find capital letters at the start of each word more annoying than text speak. That's how that works.

I could understand the annoyance if someone had gone into your forum and started a thread that was blatantly purposefully ripping off someone else's idea that was clearly visible, but people in here are probably oblivious to what happened in FM Stories years ago. I know I am.

To be honest, if they are criticising you on your use of the English language you are not doing yourself any favours by arguing back.

Who cares if it's been done before. It can be done again.

Murrayzoster - It might encourage more people to take part and post updates if you do so yourself [img]http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

No but they say they are willing to leave to help the club clear debts.

I will try this with the new signings (and sellings) are done, if you update it, of course!

Koki Mizuno -> Celtic
Geogios Samaras -> Celtic (loan)
Ben Hutchinson -> Celtic (pre-contract - summer 2008)
Teddy Bjarnason - Celtic -> Lyn Oslo

Hope that helps, Mizuno has the number 29 too, supposedly.
