Career Toji's Unemployed Challenge !

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody !

Liam1872 just motivated me so much with his story (http://vibe.community/forums/topic/33313-the-unemployed-challenge-v20/?page=1) that I've made myself creating a new career and taking the Unemployed Challenge too !

I was really amazed when, out of nowhere on google, I found this topic, on this website (which I didn't know about). I'm reading this topic from top to bottom with great interest : THAT'S WHAT I WANNA DO !
Well, maybe not winning the Champions League with such a lot of clubs but at least win this competition and get a World classe reputation.

So I started unemployed with these leagues, in this order :
England, France, Spain, Italy.

At start, 4 vacant jobs :
Sweden, Austria, Switzerland and... the only club : Swindon. It was on!

I got accepted right away and started directly in league 1 (yay) and with a lot of money (25 Millions € !!).
I don't understand why I got such an amount. I got a message when I signed : Swindon drives on gold! (word to word translation from french, i d'ont know the exact sentence).

I didn't recruit anyone since I got 3 players on loan (1 defender that I bought during the season to be sure to keep him and 2 others including a nice scorer).

During the season I got eliminated in each cup : 
- JPT South : Lost the final
- Capital One : Lost early
- FA Cup : Lost against Man City (away) by only 2 - 1! 

I was kind of happy with this last one since I lead 0 - 1 at half-time.

I finished 8th with the same point as 6th and 7th... Only goalaverage made me lose :(

I guess I need better strikers since I didn't lose from too much goals.
I wanted a AMR and a CM too as I could better provide the strikers.

I found what I needed with two greaaaat players to play in League 1 : 

Zivkovic (Ajax) :

Iuri Medeiros (Sporting Portugal (B)) : 

IMG_0173.thumb.PNG.2c62faff4be5be60c06c8

These two players were on transfer list so it's been easier to have my offers accepted but still ! So proud :)
Now I'm actually 3rd but with some games to play. I could be first :

IMG_0179.thumb.PNG.d1abd23e899209ace2369

That's all about it so far.
I'm not going to play much this weekend because I work for the football Euro 2016 and tomorrow is quite a biiiiiiiig day !

Next update on monday I guess !
Thanks for reading.

Isn't there a rule which states you must start in Vanarama North/South? 

And I believe you have switched on Sugar Daddy. 

Must be league 2 or lower

Oh, I didn't notice that.
Maybe I'll start again though.

If I start in France I only have 3 league levels. What does the rule says about it ?

Sugar Daddy is the thing about the rich owners right ?
I couldn't see Swindon in a list on the web but I may have been on this case...

You will have to start again

you should ask Dec

sugar Daddy is an unlockable which is probably switched on in your game. It isn't about Swindonbeing owned by one or not. It's in your game.

OK, thanks, all of you :)

I found this option, I deactivated Sugar Daddy that I unlocked by playing with Monaco.

So I started a nex career and waited to have a League 2 position offered. Result : Cambridge.
I'll post tomorrow some screenshots.

Is it Ok to take the Challenge with Cambridge ? :)

Have a nice day!

Yes mate that's fine, you can do the challenge with whoever and however you want it's just if you complete it by starting at a club above league 2 or with any unlockables on you won't go on the leaderboard that's all

Just wandering, some clubs have no managers at a moment in the season, is it possible to ask for a job at these clubs ? Or do I need clubs to ask for me ?
I just want to make sure that I match the rules :)

You can apply for jobs there. If they accept you you get job, if they don't...

Yes, but it's ok with the rules? 

Fine in this case.
I'll post an update of my career soon.

It's absolutely complies with the rules. Nothing at all wrong in it

And could you please post your screenshots in English. Nothing wrong right now, but with the transfers, competitions it will be very hard to understand

Screenshots in English ? 
I play in french, and it seems I can't change the language once the save is started.
I may change the currency but it's going to be really hard to play by changing that every time I want to make a screenshot.

Hello guys,

I haven’t had too much time to post an update due to a lot of work but now it's good! Here's the story!

I managed to play 3 seasons so far, so I’ll make it short enough (without too much screenshots) to make this quite readable.
So I got Cambridge, in League 2 with a bad position after 7 games :

Spoiler

IMG_0200.thumb.PNG.85d79b3dc2f5090db100e

I lost in all cups really early, even the JPT :

IMG_0202.thumb.PNG.ad6584c410943f801c33d


 

 

And on top of that, one of my best’s striker got injured for 3 months :

Spoiler

IMG_0203.thumb.PNG.93a90502ef9449929a6bb

Everything was going better with some nice wins and, for January I got the manager of the month award :

Spoiler

IMG_0205.thumb.PNG.27a3d4bf4c361fc4225b9

This convinced me I was doing great but the next weeks became horrible and I kept losing (even against the really inferior teams) and from the 4th place in February I ended up 11th on May.
It was better than expected by the direction at start but still, I’m a bit disappointed :

Spoiler

IMG_0209.thumb.PNG.ab8809e35a56c1e949fc1

For a new season, I got the motivation and a great striker from my reserve team.
First Capital One Cup game and it’s already making me sad :

Spoiler

IMG_0213.thumb.PNG.f02f078e85de726370960

And then, out of nowhere, Coventry knocked on my door :

Spoiler

IMG_0214.thumb.PNG.701a4cf33b5046a634a2f

League 1 and 5th place after 3 games. I managed to have a loan from 3 of my Cambridge players who helped to do a good season.
A Goalkeeper which didn’t go so well with my first Coventry season (you’ll see after), a right defender that my direction disapproved but now loves ^^ (I finally bought him) and my striker who scored some goals to help the team.

As a symbol of some domination games that I had sometimes but without any goal :( :

Spoiler

IMG_0215.thumb.PNG.f11069a5a020e46fdaeaa

Then I lost against Arsenal in FA Cup on the 3rd round :

Spoiler

IMG_0217.thumb.PNG.a7b1fbcd0fc542569635b

Coventry seemed to be out of the Capital One Cup and JPT at the time I got it.
I finished this season on the 11th place (just as Cambridge in the last season) :

Spoiler

IMG_0218.thumb.PNG.5a7e3788efd4f31b0d62a

I started well my 2nd Coventry season in League 1 and also in Capital One Cup where I succeeded to beat Sunderland and Fulham (both in Championship league) :

Spoiler

 

IMG_0219.thumb.PNG.f00659d1bb37b218eecef

IMG_0222.thumb.PNG.c445a39563f4b45586736


 

These two games were really lucky hold-ups :D
But once again I've fallen against Arsenal in Capital One Quarter Finals :(

Spoiler

IMG_0225.thumb.PNG.9a4454cd8deb55554968c

The game was not that bad but 6 – 1 is a bit hard !
I fell against Crystal Palace in FA Cup on the 3rd round :

Spoiler

IMG_0226.thumb.PNG.d58bc0ec0f131473d2120

I really believed in this game when I lead by 1 and the equalized at 5 min before the end of the game, but still, defensive issues made me lose this one.

I managed to get to the JPT final and lost on penaltys. Too bad, it could have been my first trophy !
I ended up this season with a 4th place after being on the top 2 for about 5 months. I did very bad in the last weeks, losing to every little team on the board :( Finally I got my ticket for playoffs :

Spoiler

IMG_0229.thumb.PNG.cf1d4cc6701eb1bf6faa4

These playoffs were intense. The first game I made 4 – 4 but I was leading 2 – 0 then 4 – 2 with 4 goals by a player from my reserve team. On the second leg I won 5 - 1 and won the right to play the final for Championship. Here’s the player :

Spoiler

IMG_0232.thumb.PNG.23e69ef62c7879b0429d8

I'd love to find an other striker named Holmes to play with :D 

I won the final even I lost one of my best player (loan from Crystal Palace) :

Spoiler

IMG_0230.thumb.PNG.9292b62d6b6b0215e4a62

Finally, my first promotion with Coventry and now it’s time to begin this new season with a lot of promises…
I lost my playmaker who didn’t want to sign a new contract but I succeed in loaning an other player just as good and efficient.

I’ll post again in a week I guess, I need that time to play enough to give you some to read :) 

Thanks for reading

PS: I totally forgot to take some player screenshot and transfer windows. I'll make it for the next update.

Hello guys,

Here’s my update for my unemployed challenge.
It’s getting serious and harder :(

I’ve started my new season with Coventry and it’s not doing so well.
Some games are hard… like this one :

Spoiler

IMG_0233.thumb.PNG.ef2cfb34effdf82ad0560

Leading all the way and two goals in the last minutes of the game! How hard is that ? :(

After 6 games, it’s just horrible :

 

Spoiler

IMG_0239.thumb.PNG.3d64798c9053adfaeda8d

And then, Bournemouth comes at my door with a pretty nice mission : do not be relegated !
The club was 18th at this moment (no screenshot :()

First games are a bit hard, mostly dominating but not enough goals to win.

Some great stuff for clubs in difficult times, the cups :) :

IMG_0245.thumb.PNG.61fd3be40bf47c5b7dbb7

 

Spoiler

IMG_0246.thumb.PNG.11bc9a47033968df29ef2

As it may be possible to beat these teams ! I must not be relegated !!
Lost in replay against Man City though :

Spoiler

IMG_0258.thumb.PNG.8487bec4d0ecce0c3a19f

In order to help me, I got this nice regen :

Spoiler

IMG_0260.thumb.PNG.3cfd59038dbe63d9a22b5

Great abilities and with a bit of IT, he may become one of the best Premier league strikers!
Unfortunately, he doesn’t score that much. I don’t know where it comes from but I’m disappointed.
In the end of the season, I lost the game that I mustn’t lose and it’s the relegation which comes to my door :

Spoiler

IMG_0265.thumb.PNG.73d0f73881e2483417d8c

The board trusts in me and I’m not sacked. They’re sur that I’ll be able to go back up in one season.
I’m counting on my reserve team to produce some great strikers to help me in my mission and I got this guy :

 

Spoiler

IMG_0266.thumb.PNG.b0e0a3e33818f298ef07e

After 2 months in IT, here is what he became :

 

Spoiler

IMG_0275.thumb.PNG.80801730d1c2d15c49b8e

The Championship looks way easier and the cup matches makes me even happier :

 

Spoiler

IMG_0278.thumb.PNG.e298767775407be1543b1

In this season, weird thing, Courtois won the world player of year award :

 

Spoiler

IMG_0280.thumb.PNG.36bf8a129e4b2c9a9f802

Finally I lost in Capital One Final against Tottenham on penalties :

 

Spoiler

IMG_0281.thumb.PNG.dc5fe22d9345fe13bdcd9

And again in FA Cup on a larger score (on replay) :

 

Spoiler

IMG_0282.thumb.PNG.0c9a82770bd8b975db43a

In addition to my striker, I found this one from my reserve and he’s pretty amazing after a few months of IT :

 

Spoiler

IMG_0290.thumb.PNG.922bc0d797a3895a99b03

These 2 guys helped me a lot in my league and made me won the Championship :

Spoiler

 

IMG_0294.thumb.PNG.cef01def8ffa1b34e6a03

IMG_0295.thumb.PNG.50d195ff72036f28fb7b3

 

With almost 100 goals :)
I had 3 strikers above 15 league goals :

Spoiler


IMG_0297.thumb.PNG.3ad699fe4bd0078897017

IMG_0298.thumb.PNG.d67da017aa579b765b4be


 

They were assisted by 3 great players (including Mings, my left defender corner kicker) :

 

Spoiler

IMG_0299.thumb.PNG.6769eb26931a1bdd03a59

I obviously got the Manager of the Year award :

 

Spoiler

IMG_0300.thumb.PNG.abdb89a0a7d94410e5530

And Mike Collins was one revelation!

 

Spoiler

IMG_0301.thumb.PNG.716f5e4d22345d7ed602c

Now it’s time to face the Premier League and fight no to be relegated !
I found, to help me, one possible regen from Hugo Lloris (early retired from Tottenham) :

 

Spoiler

IMG_0303.thumb.PNG.084bce9079ea9e6cba321

Thanks for reading me and see you soon for a new update !
