Fun/Games Vibe World Cup: Semi Final Challenge

Recommended Posts

Great scores there, unlucky for the O’Brazilians but they were huge scores to beat.

looking forward to taking on my old Nemesis @Real_Random in the Semi’s in a nice Wales v Australia tie

England v Beleneux should be a cracking match but the Gentleman Bear proving once again why he’s vibes #1

Great write up @Foxy looking forward to the next challenge

I'm thinking we should have the challenge being based around rugby league, a sport that Aussies can beat the welsh at anytime

We are down to the final four now as we said goodbye to both Singapore and Brazil in the last round. These are the fixtures for the semi-finals with the 2 winners meeting next week in the final and the two losers fighting it out for 3rd place.

The Challenge

This weeks challenge is all about the youngest and oldest players to appear at the World Cup finals. The youngest player ever was Northern Ireland and Manchester United striker Norman Whiteside when he appeared against Yugoslavia in the 1982 world cup group stage at the age of 17 and 41 days. That match was also his first cap for his country and he beat the previous record that was set by Pele in the 1958 world cup.

The oldest player ever was actually set at this year’s World Cup when goalkeeper Essam El – Hadary played for Egypt in there final group game versus Saudi Arabia and despite saving a penalty they lost 2-1. He was 45 years and 161 days old and beat the previous record held by Colombian goalie Faryd Mondragón set at the 2014 world cup.

You are all going to be doing a unique age challenge to celebrate these records. If you have never done a unique age challenge before you really need to pay attention to the rules as any mistakes will cost you and your team heavily!

Once you take over your team you need to build a squad of players that all have a unique age when the transfer window closes in the summer and then in January you need to make sure the ages are still unique and sell anyone who clashes so that on the 1st of February the squad ages are unique. The ages only need to be unique on those dates. Confused? Well on the 1st of September and then again on the 1st of February you will have a squad who’s ages are all different like in these screenshots.

1st February

To add to that you should have a striker as the youngest member of your squad and a GK as the oldest also the GK you buy must be the only GK in your squad. If he is injured or suspended you need to play a greyed out player.

Simple right!?!

Points

Only your young striker and GK will be scoring points in this challenge and they will do so as follows.

Striker league goals + GK league clean sheets + the player out of the 2 with the lowest league AvR.

E.g. 30 goals + 10 clean sheets + Your Gk AvR of 7.50 = 47.5 points.

In case of a tie league points will be used.

I will also be deducting points if:

·        -50 points for each player with the same age on the 1st September and the 1st of February. So if you have 2 players who are 19 you will be deducted 100 points.

·        You will score ZERO if you send me a screenshot of the squad ages on any dates other than the 1st September and the 1st February.

Teams

Team member 1: @PriZe, @Taff, @Woody and @Real_Random you will manage the club Whiteside ended his career at Everton.

Love it 😂 can I just add that it’s impossible to sign anyone over the age of 36 due to a ‘planned retirement’ going to have to plan this one carefully....

Give me 5 minutes 😂

Glad you like the challenge:) It's easy to sign GK over the age of 36 as I tested it but they might not be top class 'keepers.

Forgot to add your deadline is 12 o clock today mate😂

Just been asked about loan signings.

All players brought in have to be as a transfer so no loan signings.

Players on loan at the club already can be used.

The boffins in FoxBet towers have been crunching the numbers all day and can exclusively reveal the new odds for outright winner of the VWC.

We have a new favourite following fine performances from @PriZe and @Titjes with Benelux coming into 2/1 whilst former favourites Wales are 5/2 after @Taff and @Nucleus crushed the opposition in Group A. We can't separate Australia and England with both nations at 5/1. @RipRip had an excellent score in the group stage and a good performance from @Real_Random saw the Aussies take 2nd in Group B and also outscore Group A runners up England but and  are Olympic gold @Rob2017 and @Woody silver medallists respectively so they cannot be underestimated.

Benelus 2/1

Wales 5/2

Australia 5/1

England 5/1
