@Foxy do we need to load all 4 nations given or we just have to load only 1 that we’ve chosen and load any other league?

Any leagues you want.

Just started and accidentally bought 5 strikers instead of 4 and bought a northern Irish when I was buying a group of English 😂. Quickly demoted them

Just curious, how did you pair players? As in DL DCL or DL and ML for example?

Can we mix nationalities in position??  Meaning can we buy 2 German strikers and 2 Spanish strikers? @Foxy or all four strikers have to be of the same nationality

You can but when you sub players off they must be subbed for a player of the same nationality. Also remember that you can’t play two pair the same nationality at the same time so eg. You can’t have two English strikers playing and two English CBs as well as it’s one or the other each game.

  • £10 on Nigel Winterburn to win this years player of the year award
  • £10 on Boris Becker to win this years Wimbledon

Nope....

Fair play to Woody. Looking like a disaster for me though as I can’t help but think I should’ve went for Nigel Mansell for the Open, Ian Botham for Wimbledon and Carlton Palmer for player of the year. Bati will go asymmetrical though so at least some consolation.

I am going to do the bronze match reveal and the final as separate posts so this is the schedule.

  • Bronze Match: All the scores are in now so I will do the reveal tonight so that in the event of a tie the tiebreak challenge can be played before the final is revealed.
  • The Final: This will be revealed on Sunday afternoon/evening.

Vibe World Cup 2020 - Bronze Medal Match

This years battle for Bronze see’s the Asian’s take on the English. Both teams will have come into the tournament hoping for at least a place in the final and this is there last chance to get some glory.

The English pair of @Rob and @Woodyhave laboured at times in this competition as they finished bottom of the group stage and with the lowest combined points of the group stage as well. In contrast Asia have impressed at times with both @Kanegan and @broodje kip showing some flashes of brilliance and they came close to a spot in the final. The Asians go into this match as favourites but they face an experienced English team that will be looking to finish on a high.

Bronze medal matches can often be open and entertaining matches but this was a “cagey” affair although there was definitely some entertainment.

The Match

The English went on the attack early on and it was @Rob who submitted first.

This has been a gruelling tournament for Rob with a new baby in the house and we haven’t seen him at his best so far. In fact some pundits were suggesting he may not even make this match but he started nonetheless.

Rob choose FC Copenhagen to manage which comes with the pressure of expectation at Denmark’s biggest club but the £10m budget is very healthy for that league.

This was the pairs he put together and there were no nationality problems.

Just 12 matches into the season it wasn’t looking good for Rob as he was sitting mid table.

This was just a match too far though and with little hope of winning the league at this stage he was signalling to the bench that he would need to come off!

And so Rob’s match and tournament came to an early end.

England 0pts

This leaves England down a man and gives Asia the perfect chance to counter attack with @Kanegan

A good score here and it would be very difficult for England to get back into this match.

He decided to go to France and take on the task of rebuilding PSG’s squad with pairs of players and only £20m to do it with. This was a huge ask even for India’s number 1 and unfortunately he wasn’t up to the task this time around.

After 9 league games the call came to clear his desk and Kanegan was finished.

Asia 0pts

So the teams go in at half time level at 0-0 and both have lost players in the process.

Into the 2nd half and it was Asia straight on the attack with @broodje kip

This was the squad put together by Sandwich at Sporting Lisbon.

He put that squad to good use as well.

First he won the Portuguese FA Cup which gives him 20pts and gets Asia off the mark in the final.

image.png.9fffe6c6b331a6c7496830fac0497234.png
 

He then backed that up with a dominant performance in the league and because he won the title he gets his league points and GD added to his total.

image.png.89ff6cd70d691c5f08670cabe9b8f14e.png

This gives Asia 148pts and they are starting to dominate this final!

There was more to come though as although he didn’t get any points for winning the Europa League because he went out in the group stage he did get some pairs of players to score 20 or more goals.

That gave him 30 more points to his total and should have given Asia 178pts and mean that Woody and England would need something special to win this match.

But....

The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed something if you looked through those players under the spoiler.

Unfortunately we have some ineligible players and not just 1 or 2 but actually 8!!!!

The rules stated that you couldn’t use any players that came from a nation that you could manage in so in @broodje kip case that was Portugal, Russia, Turkey and crucially Spain.

You also could only use players from nations that have already qualified for Euro 2020 and Scotland haven’t yet done that as they still have playoffs to win to get to the tournament.

On closer inspection of the squad we can see both 4 Spanish players and 4 Scots as well.

image.png.4db96fd0a2501596a6ca4f186fc9f943.png
 

It’s tough on Sandwich and Kane but they were the rules and I did say that competitors could send there teams in before they play a match to have everything verified by me but @broodje kip didn’t do that.

This means that 178pts turns into 0pts.

So if @Woody can score anything be it players scoring 20+ goals or a cup win then England will take 3rd place in the event but if he also posted a 0 then it is going to a penalty shootout.

Woody also went with Sporting Lisbon and this was his squad.

Spoiler

Woody could end it all in one go with a league win but he came up against an in form Benfica who walked away with the title leaving him in third behind Porto.

image.png.5c9d08e97af2129c2f419c7816e8606c.png
 

A cup win would be enough as well or even if he could win the Europa League but again Woody was thwarted and we are getting closer and closer to the lottery of penalties.

image.png.0805cd71b21b894d56fc86cdab25020a.png

This left player goal points as Woody’s and England’s only way to stop this match being a 0-0 draw and being decided on penalties.

Spoiler

It was 10pts if a pair of players score 20 or more goals between them and Woody got just one pair over that mark which was Osawe and Emmanuel-Thomas who did just that with Osawe doing enough on his own to claim those precious 10pts

Final Score - Asia 0 - 10 England - England Win The Bronze Medal


So by the narrowest of margins it is @Rob and @Woody that take 3rd place and a bronze medal in the end so congratulations to them and thank you to you both for being great sports for the whole event.

🥉🥉

Hard luck to @Kanegan and @broodje kip who were great competitors all through the tournament and just came up short in the end but hopefully we will see you both again next year to try again.

 

The Final will be on Sunday along with the awarding of the Golden Mobile Award.
