Career Acid goes sparko with the VCT Challenge - Completed!

Recommended Posts

· Posted (edited)

Welcome to my crack at the 1 season challenge that is 'The Vibe Community Tactic Challenge'.

As stated in the rules i shall be managing German neons Borussia Dortmund.

I'm going to post on a month to month basis i think.. maybe 1 a day, i'm not sure. If you guys would prefer just the whole thing posted in one go then i will do that.

So....after selling pretty much the whole squad who did i bring in from our 5 international zones...

TRANSFERS IN:

TRANSFERS OUT:

I'm using the original database on the EME and before anyone gets on their high horse and says' hang on Acid....Mina & Murillo are both Colombian!'....i know and i pressed yes instead of no when the transfer was going through so i sold Mina straight away to Southampton.

Here is proof he hasn't played for me.

I will play out the 1st month from when the German Super cup starts.

Stay tuned guys....this could be awful ?

UPDATE ONE:

JULY 1ST - AUG 26TH 2017.

Having enjured a summer overhaul the Dortmund fans were not too optimistic about Sparxx' arrival.

Clearing out a squad that had built a solid foundation and friendship then starting from scratch, this.. many Dortmund fans were not looking forward to.

It had been noted that some sections of the fan base were glad that they only had to put up with the sillyness for one year!

One fan said "Atleast he got his business done early".

Dortmund's unanticipated preseason began with a Home tie against fellow German side Greuther Furth.

 

Spoiler

A solid 5-0 victory raised expectations a little but with several supporters saying "it was a preseason game and one we should be winning anyway"!

A few days of intensive training followed then it was the visit of another German side but this time it was current champions....Bayern!

There were chants of "You don't know what your doin" coming from around the ground prior to kick off with some fans expecting a thrashing from the champions!

Dortmund fielded the same side from the opening preseason fixture hoping to prove a point.

 

Spoiler

An excellent performance gaining a 1-1 draw and proving that they can compete with the bigger sides.

Many supporters believe Mr Sparxx to have assembled a good squad of players but are reserving judgement untill the season really kicks in.

The next game saw German minnows Sandhausen travel to Dortmund.

A comfortable victory with many thinking they should of scored more.

Next up was another home tie..european giants....Barcelona.

With some supporters thinking "this is when we see that this team just wont be able to compete with the elite".

Sparxx surprised himself as well as the home faithful with a great performance ftom his newly assembled squad, even though the game ended in a stalemate Dortmund proved a hell of alot of doubters wrong. Even taking a 2-0 lead!

The players pushed hard through preseason training, getting in shape for the opening fixture....The German Super Cup.

After a convincing preseason many fans were beginning to believe that maybe Sparxx wasn't as mad as they 1st thought.

So onto the Super Cup....

Screenshot_2018-03-21-23-24-49.thumb.png.fc231c7045bab0eee3bb0d6c0e935239.png

A fantastic second half performance typifying Dortmunds dominance in a game Bayern were expected to win.

A late leveller from Donsah took the game to penalties as Dortmund stood firm to win the Super Cup showcase.

Supporters were heard around the ground singing Sparxx' praise after the game....maybe he has turned the crowd to his favour after all. 

6 days pass and after the furore of the Super Cup win it was onto the 1st round of the German Cup against minnows Nottingen.

The potential banana skin ended in a comfortable victory with Danish legend Lasse Vibe helping himself to a hat-trick.

 

We move onto the opening fixture of the league season with a tricky away tie against Redbull Liepzig.

Supporters phoned into local Dortmund radio station 'WDR 2' wishing Sparxx all the best for the season. 

 

Spoiler

A solid opening day victory with two youngsters Isak & Barco getting the goals.

A late Kuhn goal for the home side made for a tense final few minutes.

The following saturday saw a tough home game against Werder Bremen.

An even matched game many thought.

 

Spoiler

Screenshot_2018-03-21-23-38-17.thumb.png.544b6fabf790a170432f94035be7b312.png

 

A statistically even contest it was but Dortmund found there feet early on and took several chances to finish up 5-2 winners.

Also an exceptional performance from young Swede Isak who helped himself to 4 goals.

After an undefeated start to his 1 season reign the Dortmund supporters are starting to believe in their crazilly named manager and are hopeful for what may come.

See you again soon. Good night.

Nice start, not a bad looking squad.

Every time I play in Germany, the super cup always goes to pens! Always the first season.

Might give this a crack on the OME, although I have two other careers going at the moment.

I think the polls were based on everyones experiences with the EME....maybe there should be a standalone VCT for OME..

Hi everyone,

I was going to do this as a month to month update but i played out the whole season and i think it's only fair that i post out what has happened.

I Will try to add as much detail as possible to make it worth reading and hope you enjoy it as much as i did playing out the challenge.

So lets get into it...

After a promising start to the season we move into September...things didn't go so well during this month, we struggled to keep clean sheets despite dominating games.

So as you can see we are creating chances and having plenty of possession.

We move into October hoping the team start to gel....at this point i haven't sussed out my best cd pairing yet.

So October starts of with:

A mixed bag during that month...starting to concede less but we need to turn that dominance into more 3pts.

Up next we start moving into the winter months as we enter November.

A far better month...team is staŕting to gel now and the perseverence is paying off. 

Lasse Vibe is starting to knock a few in too!

As December gets under way and we head into the festive period Dortmund find themselves a bit of form.

Going out on penalties in the German Cup didn't please the fans and neither did the 3-0 kicking by Bayern.

But overall a good month.

Stay tuned for the final part.
