What happens if you get sacked? Asking for a friend...

I think the challenge stops there? And you just submit whatever you have?

On my side, this must be the most painful challenge I have to play so far. I'm doing better than expected so far, but the stats each match are horrible. It really feels as if I'm just parking the bus and hoping that I score with the 2-3 chances I get in every match 😕

I'm not sacked yet, but getting close. When I get in front, they come back and snatch a late win. When I'm doing alright but can't score, they'll bang in a couple out of nowhere... This is tough..

Play it Jose Mourinho style, just like this:

Spoiler

 

c7ac04b1-76ce-4061-ab47-2696c4c50ee6-ori

fa4ba364-dfab-4cec-9c5e-f3b2569a2956-ori

8fa51c4b-7c23-4bed-bc5d-f2dffa3ff341-ori

 

This is literally me every last 15 mins of any match which I have the lead in lol...

But on a more serious note, I think the players you choose to keep will make the biggest difference in how you do as the season progresses. my 3 players are literally the only reason why I am somehow still winning games or at least grinding out a draw albeit being extremely painful!

LOL, mine's not that different. Well actually mine is a little more defensive (maybe that's where I'm going wrong!).

I actually play quite open tbh when we start a match, and change it depending how bad my players are performing. If we are losing or I feel we can gun for a win I might risk attacking football, but if I am holding on to a lead, I usually shut up shop in the final minutes on that match...

On that note, have anyone noticed the number of offsides the opponent seems to get against you or is it just my team? I seem to think it is just because my players are too slow to get back in time to defend, because I don't like playing with offside traps! 😂

I start open sometimes, defensive others depending on the opposition and then adjust during the game. Not much is working though... No big problems with offsides, but I have noticed that if I use WBs then they are too slow to get back and goals leak that way...

I think at the pace they have wingbacks are suicidal, they won't be able to track back fast enough to deal with counterattacks!

Oops, I meant me with 999 points 😉

On a more serious note though, 50 points seemed likely initially, but as I play on, it gets harder and harder to win, so probably not. 50 was a tad too generous I think ;)

End of the day, the match engine is so dependant on pace that once those physicals drop down there’s nothing ideally you can do but pray! I won’t lie, I had a nightmare this round and I’m probably eliminated by now! 50 points though? 😂

Glad I've finished the season. The last 3-4 months was a torture, winning matches was almost impossible, and I nearly got sacked in that period...you know opponents don't respect you anymore when top teams field a reserve lineup against you and still win 2-0 or 3-0! 😕

Yet to face that tricky period. I'm at the end of Jan. Was almost sacked earlier, fought back, but insecure again. In the last game, one of my 3 wildcards got a 1 month injury... Reckon I'll make it through? 😰

Given how the wildcards are literally your only lifeline, that must have been painful 😂😂😂

I have to say, sitting back and watching you guys suffering doing this round has been amusing. Obviously I’d love to have joined you in it (although for some reason the rules-confusing Woody seems to have given it a go - the nutter).

A cracking challenge this one!

Deadline day tomorrow so how is everyone feeling about there chances of making the semi finals?

How did your attempt go @Woody?

Not feeling confident at all! 😟 I won’t be surprised if I’ve got the lowest score of the round to be honest! 😂

Not sure to be honest, its a rather difficult challenge and I’m not sure how I did compared to the rest! Theres always the feeling that you could have done a lot better.
