Also me and @mcandrew003 have decided to run a little side challenge for the rest of this career, he came across @Ashez perspectives of play thread and was intrigued so we both plan to pump 1mil every season into a team of our choice for their worst player, and see how the AI controls their new found wealth! Of course said worst player will be demoted/released instantly so the rules of the challenge aren't affected

Sounds interesting :)

After much deliberation from @mcandrew003 and myself, we've decided to call it a day earlier than planned on the freebie challenge, there was no way either one of us would win all trophies with just free's and loans.

Mcandrew was happy to concede early and take a loss on round 1 of this H2H so we could jump into another challenge.

I'll leave it up to McAndrew to fill you guys in on the next challenge (after some suspenseful days waiting of course ?) feel free to leave a comment recommending challenges you'd like to see us face off in!

Yeah guys, let us know which challenges you want to see!

Challenge 2 - The Clash Of Titans

The Assistant Manager Challenge

On 04/04/2017 at 17:31, mcandrew003 said:

Hey guys and welcome to my latest challenge. After briefly reading Ashez 'Perspectives Of Play' Thread ( here is the link!

I have decided to post an Assistant Challenge! 

Over the years, assistants have been influential to the success of managers. Here, it's time to show this is correct...

Assistant Manager Challenge...

Checklist for the perfect assistant ( Rules)

Tactics/Team Selection

The Assistant must help with the team selection. For this rule, when on squad screen, you must click the 'Pick Team' from Actions. After the team is picked, you can only make 3 CHANGES to the team the 'Manager' picks each game. The starting tactic can be changed once per season also by the Assistant.

Transfers/Scouting

The Assistant must help with recruitment. For this rule, you can scout 4 players, and add them to the shortlist. In the transfer window, holiday for a week 3 times and select 'Assistant Buys from Shortlist' this will show if the manager approves of your scouting skills.

Training/Staff

The Assistamt must help with Training, and help me pick the right staff for the job. For this rule, you can make 2 changes to the staff team at the club, and can make 2 changes to each training regime. 

Disciplinary 

Assistant must help with disciplining the playing staff. For this rule, you must discipline players, failure to do so may see the manager angry!

 

Rules

All of the above

Start Unemployed, build up your assistant profile

If wanted, a points system will be implemented

All standard challenge rules.

Bonus

IMG_5665.JPG.041ab39d1bbb8a8db81c384af8e3a786.JPG

Be like Rui Faria and follow a certain managers footsteps! 

What do we think guys? Any other Assistant responsibilities you want to see? I hope somebody gives this a go, and thanks for reading!

Read more  

Bonjour all and welcome to the grand unveiling of challenge 2! This is a challenge I put up a while ago, and here we are bringing it back! 

Adapted Rules:

1 Sub per game

 Change roles 1 time per month

3 changes to the squad per match

Change tactics once per season

Start unemployed, build up your profile, move from club to club. 

 

So, me and Brenty start our unemployed journey in England, who is your favourite?

Sorry for the delay in updates, still getting used to the EME.

Assistant Manager Challenge.

Season 1.

So i scoured the job centre and the first team to catch my eye was my hometown... Tamworth in the VNN.

Changes.

Spoiler

We're allowed 2 staff changes per year.

image.jpg.fda4757f12c202277f3858bb2b440cfc.jpg

John Park and Kieran Berry bought in to bolster the staff.

2 changes per season allowed to EACH training regime.

image.jpg.d34294c248f860ba1330d6e3b441afc0.jpg

1 tactic change per season.

image.jpg.a17f86b880c569793017d37cc718c77c.jpg

This seemed the best fit for the current crop of players at that time.

Transfers.

Spoiler

We're allowed 1 transfer made by us per season and had to shortlist other targets and hope the 'assistant' likes our choice and buys someone whilst we holiday.

image.jpg.df4bc02b835d3b50c27d98b6f759b115.jpg

Scott Griffiths was a welcome addition to come back from holiday and see (We only had 1 poor LB before he signed). My transfer was Rosenthal who could play CM, AM or ST when called upon.

Me and @mcandrew003 also spoke and decided that we could sign 1 grey/reserve player per month, more on that later.

Now We've caught up on all the permitted changes its time for the good stuff!

FA Cup.

Spoiler

image.jpg.d05193c6a86fa81ab9025a8f0ca3bb41.jpg

First FA Cup tie of our season went to a replay, fairly even game, if anything we were slightly luck/more clinical.

image.jpg.b011bd353f76046d9235b1555cd1f932.jpg

Second FA Cup tie also went to a replay, we were extremely lucky this time out! I think we went to replay's/extra time about a good 6/7 times this season, really pushed our squad to the limits!

image.jpg.db5b5c829ed9a5672ac36413de1da0c3.jpg

They had too much for us on the day, another day, maybe a different outcome!

FA Trophy.

Spoiler

image.jpg.db01aefb42cac680b15a7f7e61baa7cc.jpg

Adam Hawley is a 'grey' striker i signed to be a decent backup, he turned out to be much more than that cementing his place in the first team all year round.

image.jpg.d9b1079d543c6eafa00a0cd443925b64.jpg

Good performance from the lads here!

image.jpg.0423d343878911ccd32b5ef31a3c9341.jpg

Woking were never in the running being brushed aside by 2 goals in 7 minutes.

image.jpg.9b45b73fbb9ab6a4a6b484ea15b9d32b.jpg

My holding midfielder and a relation of Troy (i think his younger brother) helped us overcome Chester in a tight affair!

image.jpg.db45b1e8622a354cfa0840ea04906fc5.jpg

What a game this was! We were almost 3-0 down in half hour but a late goal from my backup striker took us to extra time, Another late goal got the win for us!

image.jpg.4707f2cfd424710c4f0d423b725de669.jpg

A crushing defeat on penalties stop us from getting our first piece of silverware!

VNN

Spoiler

image.jpg.31bf6bf41c6b03ca243861617295e142.jpg

We were top for over half the season but a batch of poor results meant Harrogate could sweep in and take the crown! Playoffs it is.

image.jpg.7175bb9e5b8188f237288677c9c1efde.jpg

All we deserved here was a loss and to crash out, however we had luck on our side once more!

image.jpg.bb52fc1750f022a3bf7ed49715a6bb28.jpg

Same story different game.

Tbh we didn't deserve to gain promotion after how the playoffs panned out but for some reason the lads kept going until we did!

Stats.

Spoiler

image.jpg.0a45a5b159bfd7d7435a68246efbd433.jpg

Tamworth's 'star striker' was actually suppose to be either Reece Styche or Ross Dyer, some youth injection up top changed that!

image.jpg.40a0ae652618d121ca1d6a36cc865252.jpg

Danny Newton had a hand in 29 goals altogether!

image.jpg.64c97570aa9b0b51d2623439242c4faa.jpg

The only player to get below a 7 average all year was my defensive midfielder BWM Deeney (and we all know how broke the average rating of ball winners on EME are!)

image.jpg.28beadccdf02b853052c1282287a4dd0.jpg

image.jpg.60f2f93e2b32e1bf630b96afea6c5e48.jpg

Runner up for myself and young Adam Hawley.

image.jpg.f7e77b8a484340e4b5352f58df443b9b.jpg

Tried applying for 4 different jobs higher up which dented my loyalty drastically lol

Comments are appreciated as always, do you think @mcandrew003 has what it takes to win this round?

Thanks mate, I live in Tamworth too so it was made all the more sweet ?? the winner will be decided by manager profiles so there's plenty of time left for @mcandrew003 to beat me anyway, might try jump ship to a higher division as the 1 transfer thing means we can't strengthen as we normally would lol

Mcandrew003's Update

Well, to took me long enough! Sorry about the massive delay, as many of you know I've been extra-ordinarily busy the last few days so haven't had the chance to update until now. This is likely to be quite short as something happened, so, yeah :laugh: Anyway, I hope you enjoy this, as short as it may be! 

So, after going a few months unemployed and searching for a decent job, I stumbled across a few stragglers looking for a new leader, and co leader, until I came across a certain VNS team looking for a new management team....

IMG_7451.PNG.dcadcaf4f16f385404097a40ee02c24d.PNG

Yes yes, the prestigious Dartford is where my mighty Assistant career will begin. I take the reigns under current manager Tony Burman, with the expectation to finish mid-table. We began with us sitting in 17th place (or something like that), and from there we attempted to push on. 

League Campaign

IMG_7442.thumb.PNG.8cbe06715ebba8357072fac884aeca4c.PNG

Call it a success or a failure, we didn't orchestrate that finish. In fact, we were around 15th-17th when my and Tony's departure was announced. An awful year, but I'm not too annoyed with this start. 

Players/Squad

IMG_7443.thumb.PNG.3140b2dc87177a7008106305c7a5f037.PNG

This is the squad I had to work with. That first 11 and bench were the best players, if any of them were injured or suspended, we often failed. Duane was the star, a brilliant target man who scored and assisted ( I actually think he is an AF). Apart from him, I was left bitterly dissapointed. 

Fixtures

IMG_7444.thumb.PNG.10888bbae34cbb77d00fd267aebd07b3.PNGIMG_7445.thumb.PNG.5b8d680af914ce233eb705e7e58d1822.PNGIMG_7446.thumb.PNG.776e611b4be6352cf7b4e6334c168d72.PNG

The fixtures show is my reign. Before you judge me, I want to say that with the one tactical change we were allowed, I used it to change the refinements, not the actual tactic, which was a major mistake. 

Player Stats

Goals

IMG_7448.thumb.PNG.6729d7d1a5235c706d9f3915ca5d9698.PNG

A mixed bag, with Tom and Duane grabbing a fair few goals. Quite a few weren't under my assistant-management however, so can't take full credit. 

Assists

IMG_7449.thumb.PNG.1bcfe578e4c67bc4141085cd4b189968.PNG

Our 2 CM's steal it with 14 between them, however our wingers and strikers grabbed a few aswell. 

After this, I resigned. Me and Tony left after 30 or so Games after a poor set of results saw the board questioning our performance. Maybe I will join forces with Tony again one day, maybe not. Who knows?

IMG_7447.thumb.PNG.51415e3f61ddc135235797d7ba20ae92.PNG

Here is my Assistant manager Profile. We have conceded a stupid amount of goals, but we will get better with time hopefully. 

Assistant History:

Dartford - W:12   D:6   L:12 

 

Manager History:

McAndrew & Burman - Dartford - 30 Games

Thanks for reading! A short update, but I hope you enjoyed it and sorry again for the delay. Cheers!
