Career Warnocks World Tour! The Promotion Challenge - Season 10!

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am back with a new career and a different departure from my normal ones as I take on the The Neil Warnock Promotion Challenge

9B162931-B3A8-485E-AE7D-B37A84249F07.thumb.jpeg.8e5881acafa3b52aa190f444c66cf3d4.jpg.1cad0d3437a09c5a492e547b1f0052cf.jpg

Promotion is the key here so dipping into the lower leagues is not something I have a great deal of knowledge about but I am looking forward to the challenge and using lots of different teams that I have never used before.

Where to start? So I wanted to ensure I could have a decent pick of different divisions and countries to use so I have loaded up England, Scotland, Spain and Germany to test my credentials in various levels of league football.

For my first club I wanted someone with a good chance of promotion to get the ball rolling so it was an easy choice to take Warnock over to Germany and pick up the reigns at Hamburger Sport-Verein e.V

After relegation last year for the first time in their 55-year history Die Rothosen are looking to bounce back at the first attempt. They have a decent squad with wonderkids Jann-Fiete Arp and Josha Vagnoman plus older heads like Lewis Holtby and Pierre-Michel Lasogga

Can I turn on the Warnock magic in the first season?

I like that fact you can just take over different teams with no player restrictions or other things to keep and eye. Just promotion anyway you can!

I'll give it a shout @Foxy, concentrating on finishing my first EVER 30 year career with Oldham, won everything with them, and as England manager just got World Manager of the Year, never got that before.

Season 1 - Hamburger Sport-Verein e.V

So this wont be a too in depth career as all I am looking for is promotion!

Transfers

So with Hamburg having decent squad already I didn't want to interrupt it with too many changes. Going with my favoured 4123/433 I just needed some firepower upfront I know @Ashez was a big fan of Djurdjevic back when he was wonderkid in FMM14! Isak was mainly back up and Guendouzi provided cover in the middle.

Bundesliga 2

First season and first promotion. We were pretty comfortable all season but lost a few final games to get a bit nervy but we held on for the title. Solid season.

Team Stats

My front three all got into the 20's for goals. Arp started slowly but soon hit his stride supported well by Hee-Chan and Uros. David Bates is a very underrated CB too. Holtby was pulling the strings in Midfield.

Manager Stats

Solid start from Warnock with his first promotion in the bag.

Where next shall we try and sprinkle the Warnock magic?

Great choice of first club, enjoyed a little session with them at the early days of the game being released. Had some decent players to be fair. 

Looking forward to your next adventure. Will definately be following this.

Yeah, they are big fish really in that league. Lots of excellent young players. Might return to Hamburg for another challenge after this one.

Warnock is off somewhere sunny for his next adventure!

Will be interesting to see what job you can obtain after season 1. I found when I had a mess about with this idea last season with Villa once promoted after season 1 I was limited to jobs after applying at some championship sides I was getting overlooked?

Yeah, timing can play a part with the jobs on a challenge like that but I hope I have enough different leagues to find something interesting!

Got to love a bit of Warnock.

Good start!

He does talk some rubbish sometimes but you cant knock his ability to galvanise a team.

Very interesting attempt of this challenge mate. I was under the impression that this would be one spread over many different careers. So to attempt it all in one career is fantastic :) Great Start and all the best!

Yeah, I guess you could do that but I was looking for a quick get 'em up and get out career.

Not sure how it will go depending on the jobs available. Am aiming for 10 promotions before calling it a day I think.

Season 2: Malaga

So after taking Hamburg back to the promised land of the Bundesliga I was on the lookout for a new job, there was a few options but this one took my eye.

Malaga tried to mix it with the big boys a few years ago but crash and burned and now languish in the La Liga 2.

Can we help them back into the big time with that special Warnock magic?

Transfers Out

I had to raise some cash as there wasn't much in the pot. Mainly getting rid of the wide players that don't fit into my narrow formation.

786671341_malagatransout.thumb.JPG.8065f5550d737c831a30dabb0445d5de.JPG

Transfers In

Lots of attacking in comings. Rolan was a steal from my main title rivals so I was happy with that. Waris was a great buy as I have used him from a previous save. I did well in the Loan market too bringing in some quality for nothing. We ended up with a decent all round squad. Lee Jae-Sung was the leading assister in the Bundesliga 2 so I managed to steal him away.

La Liga 2

Wow! We storm to the title here. What a season with a 100 all round....goals, goal difference and points! No-one could handle us in this league and I was even surprised how well the team fit together with so many new faces. Warnock does it again. Two promotions in a row.

Screenshot_20190216-130826.thumb.jpg.cf66993b5385297dca041096f6da973a.jpg

Team Stats

My front three were on fire with Cordova leading the line brilliantly. We ended up with four players in the 20's. Sung and Benes were the real playmakers in the middle. McKennie loves a yellow card! 🤕

Screenshot_20190216-130901.thumb.jpg.e9144235c4e187aa96d2331719f67dfb.jpg

Manager Stats

So Warnock is two for two for promotions. A real surprise with how well this season went so I have confidence going in the my third season and on the lookout for a new challenge.

Stunning season that! Takes a few years at a club to get those sorts of numbers usually but you’ve smashed it here 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Looking forward to your next move, KIU!

I know, I was very surprised too. Its not the strongest 2nd league in the world but the guys really hit the ground running.

Harry Redknapp is that you?

"You made your name as a wheeler and dealer and there's not been much wheeling and dealing..." began Palmer. By this time, Redknapp had already torn off his microphone and was walking out the door. "I'm not a wheeler and dealer – f**k off. I've not made my name as a wheeler and dealer, don't say that. I'm a f**king football manager... ."

Season 3: Leeds

So after another country and another promotion I was looking to head back to the UK and see if I could snap up a job back home that looked like a good move to bag another promotion. 

Up popped this offer, back to an old job for Warnock who failed to take Leeds back to the big time back in 2013, can we improve on that?

Transfers

I forgot to screenshot these! 😟

Again the main focus on here was attackers. I tried to use a lot of the young players already at the club but soon realised I needed some experience. Cop was snip at just a few million and Ozyakup was cheap too from Beskitas. The key signing here was Guendozi again in January, he was outstanding from Jan till the end of the season.

Sky Bet Championship

A thrilling title run went down the final few games but we held on well to lift the title and take Leeds back to the big time. Outstanding effort from the team here in a tough, relentless league. Delighted to pick up my third promotion in a row. 

Screenshot_20190217-221728.thumb.jpg.71a9ae1a0edf275b3d3a757e132cc4d4.jpg

Player Stats

Bamford was the stand out striker, dragged our team through some games. Young Edmondson looks a great prospect too, worth a try maybe for a 1k. Guendozi was the key here, signing in January and pulling the strings to take us to the title.

Screenshot_20190217-221741.thumb.jpg.c889edd685402e991c6ecffd9e6a69c1.jpg

Manager Stats

So we are three for three, all title winning sides too. Not sure I can keep this going but its going smoothly so far.

Onto the next job, maybe a trip further up north? 😉
