This is my story of the Late Arrivals to the 4 major European leagues this season. The 4 playoff winners.

Challenge details for this Bottoms Up Challenge are here: Challenge Link

 

The term Late Arrival could also apply to me and EME (having clung onto the OME through FMM18). So it was cold turkey time: new FMM version, new match engine!  

Spoiler

Playing with the EME I noticed lots of AI teams using 4231 so I started there. This is where I ended up and what I have been using so far.

Fulham (Start of season to end Decemeber)

So for the first part of this Challenge, I decided to start with Fulham

As per the Challenge rules I had no transfer budget in the first window and a normal reputation

Fulham aren’t a very strong team so I brought in a couple of loans and an old stalwalt on a free to bolster things up

Well it’s been a rollercoaster ride for the first half of the season. We’ve lost to teams around us, been thrashed by some teams big and small, sneaked the odd win against big name opposition and singularly failed to defend properly for 90 minutes.

So I was very surprised to look at the table at the end of December and see this

So where will this rollercoaster end up at the end of the season?

Nice start to the challenge. Question tho, why does the name of the same player/scorer gets repeated when scoring twice or more? Can't recall ever seeing that unless it's a penalty or disallowed goal. 

Anyway, good start there.

Ive had this too but it only shows up when the game has finished and you go into the overview section.

During the game it looks as it should.

Great start so far!  Thanks for taking up the challenge.  I'm currently on my first season with Fulham myself but I play slower than most so waiting a bit to post in an attempt to reduce the lag between posts like with my last career...

This is new in FMM19 and I think it is to fix the problem of overflowing lines. Only shows when you look at match overview after the event via the fixtures list.

@URz great start mate! KIU

Thanks @Nucleus

Interesting that you’ve dived straight back into another long career. For me this sheer chaos has been so much fun after the almost grinding domination when my squad contains the best 2 teams in the world.

I know the tactic is flawed and leaky but that is almost adding to the enjoyment. Playing Keegan rules 😜

I’d rather get the long career out the way now 😛 I’ve got my eye on a few shorter saves towards the back end of the game

So how did the second half of Fulham’s season go? Time to strap back into the rollercoaster!

 

Just a single transfer in January to try and overcome a lack of pace at the back. In the end I couldn’t get him up to speed in half a season so he only made a handful of appearances. (I’ll learn for the next club.)

With about 10 games to go, our star player had some really bad luck

Luckily the rest of the team kept the rollercoaster going with more crazy results to end the season in an amazing 7th place with 67 points 😎

So 1/4 of the way through and 67 points on the board. What an amazing season with results that would have made Keegan proud. I don’t think I’ve enjoyed playing a single season as much as that for a long while - I hope the game results give others a smile too.

Team 2: Valladolid - Until end of Dec

So reloaded everything and started again in Spain for part 2 of this challenge.

Started without a transfer budget and Normal reputation

With apologies to any Valladolid suporters but their squad is very weak so the only solution is to take advantage of La Liga not having any loan restrictions 😉

The new look Valladolid squad seemed to take everyone by surprise and in one of those meaningless tables after 3 games, we were top!

Needless to say, it didn’t last but we have ended the calendar year in a respectable position.

Interestingly this season the exact same tactics aren’t producing the same exciting goalfests as Fulham did - we now seem to be the Kings of Draws!

You’re right about the loanees doing the job - the starting 11 is usually 6 or 7 loanees!

Team 2: Valladolid - Jan onwards

So could we maintain our early season momentum?

Well....yes and no! Less draws and more loses, but also some good wins and we managed to end with Vallodolid into Europe!!

So the heavy use of loanees seems to have paid off in Spain. Shame about the end of season slump but still better overall than I feared when I first looked at the squad.

 

Challenge points now 67 + 58 = 125

Team 2: Valladolid - Jan onwards

So could we maintain our early season momentum?

Well....yes and no! Less draws and more loses, but also some good wins and we managed to end with Vallodolid into Europe!!

Thanks @Kanegan ...... Not sure how well done, but I was pleased to end up in Europe.

Yikes, didn't expect Spain to be this tough...

It will be interesting whether others taking this challenge find the 4 leagues the same difficulty as I have.

I’m really enjoying this challenge of yours @veerus - France next.

Team 3: Toulouse

So following the teams in the order they are listed in the challenge brings us to France for the third Late Arrival: Toulouse FC

Looking at the Toulouse squad, they seem like a small but talented bunch. So I decided to play this leg of the challenge “as-is” and not get any loanees or frees.

And pretty soon we’re off on another Keeganesque roller coaster ride of goals, goals, goals!

So a couple of loses but lots of goals and good results show that my faith in the Toulouse squad wasn’t misplaced. This team are looking good.

Some big wins and finishing with an amazingly resilient draw away to PSG even when down to 10 men.

The month of draws.....but no loses. And still goals! 

So at the mid point in the season, this team is looking strong and this is the end of calendar year table

Wow, Toulouse are sitting in a Champions League spot. Where will this roller coaster finish at the end of a season that is proving a fun as the Fulham one?

Coming in late, but great job so far, especially with Toulouse! Real shame about losing Mitrovic in the first season. But doing great mate and this looks like a fun save.
