Challenges The Mad McGeady Moscow Challenge


Recommended Posts

The Mad McGeady Moscow Challenge


In August 2010, McGeady joined Russian side Spartak Moscow signing a four-and-half-year contract.The fee of £9.5 million made McGeady the most expensive export from Scottish football.He made his league debut in September, a 2–1 win against Saturn.He scored his first goal for Spartak in a 2–2 draw at home to Amkar later the same month. In the last game of the season, McGeady was sent off for a late challenge on Marcin Kowalczyk in the derby against Dynamo Moscow. He was included in the Russian Football Union's list of 33 top players, published in December 2010, placing McGeady as second best right winger.

McGeady reflects on a poor start to one season at Moscow...

"We had quite a bad start to the season, lost the first four games, we were bottom of the league.

The manager comes in and he goes 'Right lads, we've got a meeting today, the heads of the ultras are coming'. The Spartak fans were passionate, really, really good fans, but they'd proper ultras as well. They'd fly everywhere as well, fly to Siberia, five hours on a flight for an away game, and they'd fill the away section. Unbelievable fans.

But I was kind of like 'What's all this about? Why are the heads of the ultras coming into the training ground?' He invited them all in. They obviously wanted to speak to us, and he went 'Yeah, in yous come lads.'

6 or 7 guys come in, one, the main guy who was talking, the leader, he was just like an ordinary guy, but the rest of them were all skinheads, tattoos everywhere. So he just starts speaking in quite a nice manner, he was angry, but he's saying things like 'We have to get better, we support you through everything, but we need more from you', but while he's talking there's this guy next to him just swearing in Russian, and pointing at people. All the Brazilians.

So this guy kept shouting and swearing, then at the end of it they were kind of like 'Look lads, we just want you to do well, we support you through everything. Good luck next game, we'll be there, come over and clap us.'

And then they walked out, and as they're walking out they've all got guns in the back of their jeans...

How are they allowed in the training ground with guns? It was mental."

Can you improve on McGeady's record on Moscow?
He finished with 13 goals and 28 assists in 93 games.


  • Load up Russia plus any other countries and take over at Spartak Moscow
  • You must sign an Irish Midfielder to be your new McGeady
  • Other transfers are allowed.
  • The challenge will last for just 93 games (when you player plays his 93rd game the challenge is over)
  • The points total will be your combined goals and assists from the your "McGeady in all comps (not friendlies)
  • Usual rules apply.

Can he only play as an attacking midfielder or up front also?

I will say he cant play in any of the attacking positions (FL, FC. FR)

Thanks mate, I see he is only credited with 72 games, and 11 goals in this years version whilst in Russia (no assists shown)

I was going by the stats on another website not the FMM stats, I'd stick with those. Not a huge target to hit either way! 😉
