Career The Impossible Challenge - Cockers2505

Great stuff Cockers, can't wait to see that trophy cabinet with all the unique ūüŹÜ must be a looong list.¬†

Can't stop now, so I think you'll only be the 3rd on Vibe to complete the full 30 seasons this year.

Nice system you’ve got going there with everyone in the team doing a fine job. I’m going to guess that you may be heading to Italy next?

Thanks @BatiGoal I'm a few seasons ahead, but getting them posted is getting to be a challenge in itself due to Work and family. 

I will continue to the 30th year as I've never reached it before, so I will be glad to tick this off once and for all.

Hi @Ian thanks mate, the Tactic has not changed, regardless of team, division or players, yet I seem to still have good results. And I'm off to France again, this time to conquer the National League

This will be a quick Update, as I am staying in France to finish off this leg of the challenge by taking over a Team in the National League (never played in EVER).

Who is the Team for the Next season...

US Marseille Endoume of the French National League...

Didn't win the French Cup, but I got myself through to the Semi Final, the path was not easy with a few shock results to mention...

Final Table...

A good Season had by all, winning it by 17 points ahead of second place, again a full squad of Freebies gets me another League win on the first attempt...

Awards for the Season...

Only one to mention, but a worthy one, The French National Top Goalscorer

Both my strikers get 18 goals apiece to take 2nd and 3rd in the Top Goalscorer awards...

Transfers

There was a lot I must admit, all FREE, but I wanted a big team as they was dropping like flies at one stage, so the side needed to be a good amount of back-ups to last the season...

Players out of the Mammoth transfers was my 2 strikers up front...

Tom McKenna - Striker who for me could fit into many other teams with those attributes...

Av. Ratings

A few others contribute to the outstanding season we had other than the 2 main strikers, a good strong Midfield and Defence help win this Leg of the Challenge for me...

Goals

Doesn't sound much, but in this League, and using FREE players, 22 goals for 2 players is a good result for me...

So this is it, a quick update, hopefully followed bu another update very soon. In my reckoning, I have 4 official Trophies to get, and if I have time, I will try and get the others won in Each country as a bonus, even though I have won them already in different countries.

Interesting to see all the changes to the leagues! I did one 30 year career but struggled to complete it just being two nations I think, also playing it on my phone so I can't load too many I guess?

Going for freebies is something I like to do, but do you feel it gets easier further into the game?

Excellent stuff, good luck completing this career!

Wonderful stuff, Cockers. That resumé of yours is reaching epic proportions. Maybe add managing (int jobs) in as many continents as possible.

Thanks @Dagion I didn't really set out to try and win International trophies at first, I took the INT jobs to boost my Managerial Stats, but as I won my first, I thought why not try and get as many to add to this Challenge.

As for the Freebies, I personally think after the first couple of seasons, and the Players start to become unknown, I have found it soooo easy to get Freebies that simply stand out, but also I have been playing Football Manager games since 1982 so you kind of get a feel with who could fit where, I found CM 01/02 to be the best for this, and then it has got better as each version comes out.

As always thanks @BatiGoal , it's been an epic journey so far, I feel as though I'm missing out with all the other Challenges I am not doing, looks as though this is not as exciting to the Forum as all the other Challenges, but to me it has been a prosperous one for me, I feel as though I have achieved so much with basically NO financial burden which is unheard of in this game normally.

Not many seasons to go, I will soon finish off the last final stages of all the normal Trophies for this Challenge, give it a go with Mexico in the World Cup, regardless of Win or Lose I might then try one more INT job to see what other exciting trophies I could attempt before retirement

Still looks pretty exciting to me! However I understand what you mean by missing out on other challenges. I really enjoy the 2 season or shorter challenges, which can take your mind of a longer save game.

In the full versions I really played extensively (06, 07, 08) it was really easy to go on the freebie tour, there were a lot of players randomly generated I guess. Especially when you selected the huge db. Not so easy in latter games so it's impressive, especially in the beginning stages.

Update...

So my International Management has gone well, how about the main Challenge itself...

Recap on the Outstanding Trophies...

Outstanding
England   Vanarama National League  
  Vanarama National League South  
  FA Trophy  
  Club World Championship  
Spain   Club World Championship  
Italy    Italian Series B  
   Euro. Super Cup  

 

England has 2 realistically in the VNN and FA Trophy as I have won the VNS which counter acts the VNN, but eh, i've got the time, so why not...

So after taking US Marseille Endoume to promotion, I thought why not, lets take on VNS and VNN at the same time, get Tonbridge Angels promoted, and then I have a shot with the VNN and the FA Trophy

Outstanding
England   Vanarama National League

The Year is 2044 and I have the VNN and Italian Series B to finish off all League Trophies, so that will take me to 2046 if I win both first time, the question is, will I then be able to clinch any of the Club World Championships in England or Spain, or the Euro. Super Cup in Italy?

To complete the challenge you only have two more trophies to win, National League and Serie B.

You only need to win each trophy once so you’ve already done the CWC and Super Cup (unless that’s an additional challenge you’ve set yourself)

Another excellent season in regards to Av. Ratings throughout the team, not bad considering this is their first attempt at this League...

Thomas outshines everyone with an overall tally of 46 goals, considering I play 2 up front, you can see who the stronger striker was when playing alongside either Santos or Sevilla

There are plenty of interesting teams in Italy, hopefully one is available. Also look forward to your last bit, even if it isn't with Oldham.

Well we will see, it will make a fitting end to all this if I can lift Oldham back into the premier League after 20+ years

Marin Semper - Striker, needs no introduction, a player that brought us so much joy throughout the season...

And to finish off in style, I was thinking a top club in any of the Countries, but along came the ultimate Club for me, one I can be proud to try and take back into the Premiership as they was back in 1992 as a Founder Member of the Premier League, can I get them there before my 30 years up, and can I keep them there for longer than 2 years, they sit in the First Division (old 3rd), sat at the top with 5 games played and no losses...

Final Update to this Mammoth Challenge, one I have thoroughly enjoyed...

So I completed the Challenge, and only needed to complete 3 More Seasons for a full 30 Year Career. Who best to finish with, but my Life long support of Oldham Athletic. The opportunity was for me to take them back up to the Premiership with only 3 season to do it, can I achieve two back to back Promotions, and then a shot at the Premier League, and with the continued theme of not spending a Penny...

Can I ask @Foxy adds my 12 Promotions to the Neil Warnock Challenge, might as well get my name on something else...

Thanks to all that have read and commented, this was a brilliant career and one I have always wanted to achieve, it started as a FREEBIE challenge, never spending a penny, which I achieved with great success, then @samhardy introduced the Impossible Challenge which enlightened my hunger to continue with a full 30 year career, so thanks again, Cockers signing off with this Post for the Last time (except for any messages to be replied to, I'm don't want to be ignorant)...
