Before I reveal this weeks scores and who will join Netherlands in the final an apology. My iPad is playing up so I will be posting this from my phone and to make life a little easier for myself I won’t be including any screenshots this week unfortunately. I have jotted everyone’s scores onto pieces of paper like it’s the olden days that I unfortunately remember too well although not as well as Bati and Woody and I think I’m ready to go.
 

Group Stage - Week 3 Results

Myself and @BatiGoal are already through to next weeks final so we were just playing for Golden Mobile points this week although our performance could massively effect the table below us and who would make the final.

Both the Asian lads of @Kanegan and @broodje kip along with the English boys of @Rob and @Woody needed to get the top score and so maximum points from this weeks challenge in order to stand a chance of making the final. The North East team had to make sure they didn’t finish last this week and they would secure a place in the final so there was plenty for everyone to play for.

This was a challenge that was designed as a risk and reward challenge so the greater the risk you were willing to take the larger the rewards but there was a chance you may go too far, sign too many Danish and Greek free transfers (D&G) and not be able to get results leading to the sack a zero points.

The Results

We will start with those likely lads from the North East.

North East

@samhardy decided to take charge of Borussia Monchengladbach (BMG) this week and went with 16 D&Gs which means his score would be X3 so he wasn’t going for the full squad and I was surprised by that as Sam normally likes to take a risk or two.

He fared pretty well in the league finishing 3rd but went out of the EL in the group stage. In the German cup he had a better run but was dumped out at the semi final stage by Bayern.

Wins: 27

Draws: 10

GD: 40

131 X3 = 393points

His team mate @smoggy90 took charge at Wolfsburg but only just got above the midfield pack finishing 5th in the league. In the EL he made it to the 1st KO round but met Chelsea and that was that whilst he only won two games in the German Cup and went out in R3.

Just like Sam he went with 16 D&Gs but one place he let his score down was he was the only person to submit a negative GD which meant he lost 5pts on the total that was X3 so in all he would have lost 15pts compared to a 0 GD.

Wins: 21

Draws: 13

GD: -5

71 X3 = 213pts

The North East scored 606 points.

Team Asia

So a decent score by the Parmo Army but could the Asians beat it and make things interesting this week?

@Kanegan choose Eintracht Frankfurt and signed 18 D&Gs although that still only got him a X3 multiplier the same as 16 of them would.

Just like Smoggy he finished 5th in the league but he did better in the cups as he reached the EL quarters before losing to Lille and then the German Cup semis before losing to Bayern just like Sam did.

In fact no one in the competition won as many games as Kane did this week.

Wins: 35

Draws: 11

GD: 36

 152 X3= 456pts

An excellent return from Kane and one that will get the north east on the edge of there seats.

All @broodje kip needed to do was score 150 or more points and they could be in with a shout of making the final although with total points as a tie breaker he will need a lot more.

A lot more is what he got as the Asian boys found some form this week.

He took charge at BMG and finished an impressive 2nd in the league using 16 D&G players. In Europe he got to the 2nd KO round before Man Utd dumped him out but the German Cup was less impressive as he lost in the 2nd round.

It was his GD that let his score down a bit.

Wins: 28

Draws: 9

GD: 23

116 X3 = 348pts

This gives Asia a score of 804pts so well above the North East this week and they have given themselves a chance of making the final if they beat Holland’s and England’s score and England also beat the North East’s total.

Spoiler

England

The English needed a big performance this week to try and take the top score and get a chance of the final but even if they beat the North East they will have at least made things more tense for them and Asia.

Both @Rob and @Woody decided to be more cautious with their squad build and both only had half the squad made up for D&Gs so 10 players in total. This is enough for there score to be doubled but they would need great seasons to post a top score.

@Rob went with Wolfsburg and could only finish 8th in the league. In the cups he got to the 2nd KO round of the EL before meeting Liverpool who needed his journey and his German Cup adventure ended in the 3rd round.

Wins: 20

Draws: 10

GD: 9

79 X2 = 158pts

It was going to take something very special from @Woody to keep England but also Asia’s hopes of the final alive.

@Woody went with BMG and in his own words “dodged the sack a few times” as he finished 10th in the league and went out in the 2nd round of the cup. In Europe he did far better though as he got all the way to the semi finals of the EL before EL specialists Sevilla put him out.

This gave Woody slightly more wins than Rob and a better GD as well.

Wins: 24

Draws: 13

GD: 13

98 X2 = 196pts

This gives England a score of 354.

England and Asia are eliminated and the North East go through to the final.

In the end even if England had beaten the North East’s score but not Asia’s then the Asians wouldn’t have made the final as Holland top scored this week.

@BatiGoal was the only person who went with a full D&G squad and he reaped the rewards with a monster score despite being near the sack early on at Eintracht Frankfurt.

He showed the value of the extra multiplier really as his performance was good but not a huge amount better than anyone else’s. He finished 4th in the league, went out of the EL in the 2nd KO round and made it to the German Cup quarter finals.

He had one less win than Kane, the least number of draws and a lower GD than both Sam and myself yet that sweet X4 on his score made a big difference.

Wins: 34

Draws: 8

GD: 38

148 X4=592pts

As for myself I went with the X3 multiplier and had 16 D&Gs which was the most popular option as I took charge of BMG.

The biggest news from my attempt is that I was actually the only person who won a trophy as I managed to avoid Bayern all the way through the German Cup and beat Leipzig in the final. I then finished 2nd in the league but went out of the EL in the 1st KO round to Porto.

 I had the best GD this week but both Bati and Kane won a lot more games than me.

Wins: 29

Draws: 10

GD: 57

154 X3 = 462pts

Holland scored 1054pts

This weeks team scores.

Holland: 1054pts

Asia: 804pts

North East: 606pts

England: 354pts

That leaves the final group standings looking like this.

The Final

Holland vs The North East

The Bronze Medal Match

Asia v England

Golden Mobile Award

It is looking like @BatiGoal has an unassailable lead now in this event with just one more challenge to come although that isn’t yet guaranteed due to the finals point system.

This week’s individual scores.

Spoiler

Bati: 592

Foxy: 462

Kane: 456

Sam: 393

Chicken Sandwich: 348

Smoggy: 213

Woody: 196

Rob: 158

1855970556_goldenmobilewk4.thumb.png.7ab6cbd22c969be739a053ad73d82e13.png

 

The Final and Bronze Medal matches will both use the same challenge and that will be live on Saturday at some point.

Thanks for reading.

We had a super cyclone hit our city yesterday completely destroying it and disrupting all essential services. So, when internet came back on today, I rushed to this site to check the results. Although dissapointed to not make the final but pretty happy with our efforts. 

congrats team North east for making the final along with  Holland of course. 

And @broodje kip, couldn't have asked for a better partner than you. Well played mate.

This was one odd challenge for sure. I've mentioned it before but I want to mention it again, because I don't think the points reflect what was really going on behind the scenes. I had a shit start and to my surprise the board started bitching early. Mainly because the many EL play off games early on, so a rubbish start in the league with 1 win in 5 almost led to my sacking. I was this close to scoring 0, so to take top score is just nuts. Goes to show what a weird little game this can be at times. I wouldn't recommend x4 multiplier to anyone, that's for sure. 

🍻 to a good final challenge to all.

So Black Cat Betting return for the final time this event with odds for both the third place playoff between England and Asia and also the North East vs “Holland” final.

Firstly though we look at the Golden Mobile.

Betting has been suspended on this market with the feeling being @BatiGoal can not be overtaken. Therefore congratulations to @Ian your bet has won and you have won £50 worth of free bets for the final which are usable at either Black Cat Betting or FoxBet.

The Matches

Asia (8/15) vs England (6/4)

Ordinarily this one would be a very hard one to call with maybe England being slight favourites but after a promising start to the event it has fizzled put into a bit of a disappointment for @Rob and @Woody.

To add insult to injury Rob heads into this one on the back of a threesome that was abandoned halfway through so you have to wonder where his mind will be at and the Asian duo of @Kanegan and @broodje kip are expected to come out on top in this one and take the bronze medal.

Final

“Holland” (1/3) vs North East (9/4)

It is safe to say that the “Dutch” pairing of @BatiGoal and @Foxy dominated the group stage winning every challenge with Bati especially opening up a commanding and probably now unassailable lead in the Golden Mobile and this is shown with their massive favouritism in the odds.

However my completely unbiased tip for the final is to bet your house, car, whatever else on the North East to take the title at those incredibly generous odds.

Bati’s past wounds will already be opening at the thought of playing me in a final and the general consensus is that he will bomb here allowing the extremely consistent pairing of myself and @smoggy90 to take the title.

After four weeks of competition only two teams are left to contest the final namely the North East likely lads of @samhardy and @smoggy90 and the Netherlands with myself and @BatiGoal. This is now a straight H2H fight with the team that has the highest score in this weeks challenge being crowned as champions.

We also have Asia with @Kanegan and @broodje kip England with @Woody and @Rob fighting it out for the bronze medal and they will be taking on the same challenge as well with highest score securing 3rd place.

Euro 20201

The club football season should have been drawing to a close now and attention would have been starting to move to this years European Championships that were going to be held across Europe this summer. The pandemic has meant it will now (hopefully) be taking place next summer but that hasn’t stopped me taking a little bit of inspiration from the event for this challenge.

The Euro 2020 Nation Locke

image.jpeg.ebb1b20016790fb8b3da7acc2baf09d7.jpeg

Some of you may be familiar with the concept of the Nation Locke challenge that @Ashez came up with a few years ago and some of you may not be. It is quite a simple concept once explained.

  • You will create two teams of players that are in locked pairs based on there nationality but also where they play on the pitch. So for example your two strikers will both be English and they will always play together as a pair so if one is injured, suspended etc then the other player doesn’t play either.
  • You will obviously have 5 different nationalities of outfield players in your first XI and then your 2nd XI must have the same 5 nationalities as well so that you have 20 players in 10 sets of pairs with 2 sets of pairs for each nation.
  • The pairs must make sense on the pitch so as an example you can’t pair up a CB and a ST. The best way to think of it is like Chemistry in FIFA ultimate team so the players need to be next to each other or playing one strata ahead and directly in front. Under the spoiler is some examples.
    Spoiler

    GK
    RCB + RB
    LCB + LB
    RCM + RM
    LCM + LM
    ST + ST

    Gk

    CB + CB

    WB + WB

    CM + CM

    W + W

    ST + ST

    GK
    RB + RM
    LB + LM
    CB + CM
    CB + CM
    ST + ST

  • As players are paired up you cannot use any formations that have lone players or triple players in a strata. So that excludes 4-1-2-2-1 or 3-4-3 for example. You need to think in twos and fours so if you have a player in DM you need someone alongside him.
  • If you wish to substitute a player then he must be brought off for a player of the same nationality in order to keep a pair.
  • The GK is not included in the pairs and in this challenge you have to use the GK at the club already.

The Challenge

  • The first thing you must do when you take over at the club is to sell the entire first team except for two of the GK who you will keep and use. You may not use any of the outfield players already at the club in this challenge.
  • You will then build two teams of outfield players using the Nation Locke rules and picking 5 nationalities from the list below. The players must always stay in there pairs that you assign them at the start of the save so you cannot for example mix and match your English players as the save goes on. If one member of a pair cannot play then the other doesn’t either and you cannot play both pairs of players of the same nationality in the same game. The only exception is when substituting a player as that must be done nationality for the same nationality.
  • You have a choice of four leagues to manage in which are different from your team mate. You cannot use any players from those four nations as any of your pairs but you can use players from the nations assigned to your team mate to manage in.
  • Once you have build your two teams of pairs you will have a squad of 22 players including the two GK. You will have 20 outfield players from 5 different nations. This is your squad for the entire season and must be built before the first game and you may not buy any players in January.
  • You must use a players first nationality to determine if you can use him or not.
  • You will be assigned a transfer budget based on which league you are playing in. This is the most you can spend on the entire 20 players you need to bring in and overspending will result in a zero score.
  • You cannot use loans or swap deals to bring in any of the players.
  • Your in game currency must be set to £.

Club Choice and Nationalities

The number in ( ) after each league is how much your transfer budget will be if you choose that league to manage in. Remember you cannot use any players (except GK already at the club) from any of the four nations assigned to you but you can use players from nations assigned to your team mate as well as nations from the list below.

These are all the top division in there respective nations.

Player 1 - @samhardy, @BatiGoal, @Kanegan, @Rob

  • England Premier League (£30m Max Budget)
  • France Ligue 1 (£20m Max Budget)
  • Netherlands Eredivsie (£10m Max Budget)
  • Danish Superliga (£10m Max Budget)

Player 2 - @smoggy90 @Foxy @broodje kip @Woody

  • Spanish La Liga (£30m Max Budget)
  • Portugal Primeira Liga (£20m Max Budget)
  • Russia Premier League (£10m Max Budget)
  • Turkey Superlig (£10m Max Budget)

Player Nationalities 
The following nations have already qualified for Euro 2020 and you can use them to make your player pairs. The only exception is that you cannot use any players from the 4 nations you have the choice to manage in.

Nations in bold are excluded from player 1’s as they are the nations you can manage in.

Nations in bold italic are excluded from player 2’s as they are the nations you can manage in.

Germany, Spain, France, Czech, Denmark, Sweden, Croatia, Switzerland, Ukraine, Wales, Russia, Italy, England, Netherlands, Portugal, Belgium, Turkey, Poland, Austria, Finland

Points

This week only success will be rewarded with points.

  • You will get your league points and +/- GD but only if you win the league.
  • 20pts for winning a domestic cup. You can only get these points once so in nations with two cups winning both will still only yield 20pts. Also Super Cups/Charity Shield matches do not count.
  • 20pts if you win either European Competitions. The Super Cup does not count.
  • As a bonus you will get 10pts for each pair that score a combined 20 goals or more in all competitions. So to clarify if one player scores 15 and the other 5 you get 10pts for that as an example. The players must be designated pairs on the pitch though and not just from the same nation.

Screenshots

  • Tactics screen showing both teams of pairs laid out in formation before the first match of the season. (you can provide this before you start the season to make sure you have got it right).
  • Squad screen ordered by nationality before the first match of the season.(you can provide this before you start the season to make sure you have got it right).
  • Squad screen ordered by appearances at the end of the season.
  • Transfer history at the end of the first window and end of the season.
  • Player profile and history of each player from the pairs that get 20 or more goals.
  • League table
  • Match you are eliminated/win cup competitions.
  • Manager profile
  • Manager history

Rules and Clarifications

  • You must follow the Nation Locke rules at all times.
  • No players except two GK’s from your teams current squad may be used.
  • You must follow the nationality rules as stated above.
  • You can only play one pair of each nationality in a match.
  • You must not spend more than the allocated budget for the league you manage in.
  • No loans or swap deals.
  • Only a players first nationality counts towards the Nation Locke.
  • Your squad must be assembled by the first league game.
  • No transfers in to the club in January.
  • You must have your in game currency set to £.
  • Standard DB only but either Nov or Feb DB is ok to use.
  • In the event of a tie a tiebreak challenge will be played.
  • No editing, reloading or cheating in anyway.
  • Own tactics only.
  • If asked you must provide the save file for inspection and failure to do so will result in you excluded from the competition.

Deadline: Saturday 30th May 2020 @ 11.59PM UK Time

Any questions please ask and have fun.

A bit late and not sure I got everything but this will be brilliant! Think choice of DB will be important, also Netherlands only have 18 teams in the highest division and Belgium have their playoffs bonanza. Tricky!

Nice challenge to end things with. I might’ve known I wouldn’t actually receive my winnings but would instead be presented with a voucher. Guess I just have to accept that and I will be making some bets tomorrow. I’ll remember this though especially if there’s any trouble at the record store from a couple of unsaid people when I’m on duty.

@samhardy @BatiGoal @Kanegan @broodje kip

Something @Dagion just said about the playoffs in Belgium made me look at the format again of the league and it turns out that league points are halved after the league stage and before the playoffs.

For this reason I am changing the Belgium top flight to the Danish top flight as there league splits but the points remain the same after the split.

Sorry for any confusion and I have edited the OP to reflect this change.
