Mate you smashed that challenge. Great score and glad you enjoyed it. I'll update the leaderboard in a mo. 

Look forward to the next film. 

Thanks, it went even better than I thought! Could be an interesting league for future plays, seeing you can attract very good players in comparison to the league standard.

Well doing the math is much more harder than playing it. Fantastic score btw. Keep going mate. 

Can't decide which team to pick, NY Red Bulls or NY FC. Red Bulls can attract better players but the transfer budget is the same and expectations at FC are lower..

Great score @Dagion 🙂

Thanks! Have a feeling the next score will be a little bit short of this one 😉

Haha, I don't have a clue what's going on in the MLS. Just playing my games, think we're doing okay. Will require some work to see which territory we won I guess.

Struggling with my young Italian, picked one too young I guess. Ah well, my oldie is doing fine and those are bonus points anyway.

Fitness seems to be an issue in the league, not sure why as there are plenty games in between.

"Fun" screenshots:

Trying some stuff out, swapped it around for now but seems pretty okay?

Damn you Zlatan, guess we don't take over LA.

Sure, no problem.

At least he won't be able to cause a penalty every other game..

All in all I don't really like playing in the MLS, but most of my annoyance is due to the different league schedule and transfer windows. Think I would enjoy it more with a better young Italian, but trying out some tactics is nice!

Proper update time.. As we traveled to America it was time for a classic: the Godfather! Haven't seen it myself, tried it once and found it to be a bit boring. I know, shoot me. Maybe in the future I'll watch it properly.

Goal of the challenge is to sign an experienced midfielder/forward as your Don Vito, and a young Italian striker as your Michael at one of the two New York clubs in the MLS. You have to defeat other territories or cities by having a better score over the course of 1 game (against Western Conference teams), 2 games (Eastern conference games) or even 3 games (some teams you meet again in the playoffs).

Every won territory is 10 points, drawn territory 0 points and lost territory -10 points. Bonus points for goals Michael scores and assists Don Vito gives.

We opted for New York City FC. The transfer budget is comparable to New York Red Bulls but we only needed a mid table finish. Players interested in Red Bulls were better though..

First our Michael: Elia Petrelli. Promising youngster from Juventus, but needs some development. A bit too much actually for a 1 season challenge in hindsight.

Screenshot_2020-05-18-23-12-14-099_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.ee1e8d918f671eec36ee33329fa295f0.jpg

Second our Don Vito: Luca Cigarini. Not really that great players available so I went for a central midfielder. Passing and creativity seems good and his physical stats aren't too bad.Screenshot_2020-05-18-23-12-23-627_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.397dbe094df7c5adec26b75c5271eac2.jpg

Managing in the MLS was new for me. You start in January and I think that, being earlier than other leagues, makes it difficult to sell players. Also a reason I picked who I picked, they weren't expensive.

Other negatives of the MLS are the games during international matches. At some point I missed a bunch of players. To add to that I found it pretty hard to manage the fitness, while most games took place a few days apart.

The league itself however was pretty fun, looked quite open to me. Also the fact you play Western once and Eastern twice was a welcome change of the usual play each opponent twice.

How did we do?

Well, good actually. Guess being a club owned by Man City or whatever the construction is makes you a bit.. annoying?

We were first in the league at that moment and form was good. Don't know. Didn't get much better either.

How did Michael and Don Vito do? Cigarini was solid, he got some assists and even a few goals. Petrelli did a little bit better in the end but his development wasn't fast enough. He looks quite promising at the end of the season though.

Screenshot_2020-05-19-20-11-55-234_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.20fc62801cbc8fe2d016d1d0ad60751f.jpg

Cigarini looks solid, but the decline is imminent I think.

So that's 8 points from Michael and 15 from Don Vito. Not that good I guess. Calculating the won (or lost) territories I did in Excel, because it's a pain in the ass.

41113805_MathNYFC.jpg.73abb7530dacee896998cdffbc2361dd.jpg

We won the Eastern Conference and you qualify for the semifinals if that's the case. We played Montreal Impact in the semis, getting us an extra territory we otherwise would have drawn.

Eastern finals we played against Philadelphia which didn't matter that much I guess. Finals we won against LAFC! But if we hadn't played them we would have still had their territory?

All in all, bit of calculating but we managed to win 19, draw 2 and lose 2. 170 points, not bad? Don't know for sure, but add our Italian stallion bonus points and our grand total is 193 points.

It's a decent score for this challenge, and interesting to see the MLS for the first time. Not my favourite one, but still more fun than Goal 2 in my opinion.

If anyone has any request of screenshots during these movies just let me know. Usually I have the save available until I'm two movies further. Thanks for reading and I guess it's time to find me some chipmunks!

I'll have to check what the match stats were but they didn't leave an impression. Montreal Impact however.. tough to beat.

Actually he scored against me in the first match. We didn't score until after 90 minutes technically..

In the return we had the tactics down, shout-out to my 36 year old scoring left back Eliseu who I signed when injuries got a bit out of hand.

Hey. Had a day off yesterday so just caught up. 

Looks like a good score. Territory results are good (I know the scoring is a bit of a pain but wanted something that wasn't always 'add up goals scored'), just a shame you couldn't get more out of your Vito and Michael. 

Looking forward to the next film. I've got a double header I'm about ready to post which should provide some different challenges. Well done.

No problem! I'm trying some stuff out for the next challenge so that will take me a bit longer. I'm not sure where to manage, thinking about Germany and lower leagues.

Probably will pick some players that won't get me the high score but that's because another challenge I set myself for this one.

Lower league Germany sounds interesting. I did want there to be a choice of clubs in some of the challenges so people used someone different. 

I think you'll like the club in Snatch. Top league in Belgium but definitely not a top club.

Antwerp is always fun to play with, lower leagues in Germany are a bit hit and miss until now. Snatch and Lock Stock are two favourite movies of mine, much better than The Godfather. Yes I said it @BatiGoal

Players I went with aren't good enough to excel but it's fun. Also didn't do the triple threat exactly as intended but I changed the tactics now. Need some reinforcements in the winter window because the players I brought in aren't as good as I expected 😃

Next up: Alvin and the Chipmunks!

Not sure if I've actually seen this one but the challenge itself is pretty straightforward.

Pick three players whose names start with A(lvin), S(imon) and T(heodore). Do a triple threat challenge (by playing them in the striker positions) and the score will be their total assists and goals.

Bonus points for team of the week (+1), team of the year (+10), and world player of the year (+25).

With all those bonuses in play it only seemed fit to manage a world class team with world class players. Well maybe I missed the part of all the bonuses but we went with Kaiserslautern. In the 3. Liga in Germany..

Ah well, not changing it now since we finished it but you probably can get a lot of bonus points I guess. Or regular points with like, I don't know, skilled players.

However, off we go to present our amazing Chipmunks!

First up, our "Alvin". Bought from the Dutch powerhouse located in Eindhoven. Or at least when I manage them, FC Eindhoven!

Screenshot_2020-05-21-23-33-28-298_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.2e83910ab65b958925892f2d5e2ba69b.jpg

Seems decent and a lot of yellow so with a bit of training quite flexible.

Next, our "Simon". Bought from Belgian side Oosterzonen Oosterwijk for 30k. I was just searching for a willing striker with high finishing and he came up. Pretty solid performer though.

Screenshot_2020-05-21-23-33-12-700_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.9ac41fc3526ef4130c3e9a12a27aedf7.jpg

And last, our "Theodore". I loaded up a bunch of leagues and searched for the actual name but there aren't any I could find. Close enough I think!

Screenshot_2020-05-21-23-33-39-358_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.d4ca98df578b99a40e2563cc96836701.jpg

I was going to play two strikers with Theodor as my AMC but the rules of a TT state you play your guys up front so I ended up retraining him as an AML to play in the forward IF spot on the left.

Fun fact; I only could find three Alvin's, and two of them are Dutch. You can actually come pretty close doing this at a higher lever, depending on some leniency from @Thepremiermanager.

For example, playing Calvin Stengs, Simone Zaza and Theodor Gebre Selassie (who looks pretty decent as a winger) up front. Calvin wouldn't qualify but all the Alvin's are lower league material.

Not going into much detail here, the league was pretty fun to play in. A lot of known clubs were actually in the same league. For example, Uerdingen and Unterhaching (probably my age) but also 1860 München, Hansa Rostock, Braunschweig (played Bundesliga in 2014?) and Duisburg.

In the end we won the league pretty convincingly. Cup we went out of in the early stages (read: first round) so that wasn't good for our TT.

We got a decent amount of mentions in the Team of the week.

Why Aboukhlal is in I don't know, he only played 14 games.

In total that gives us 31 bonus points. Not too shabby considering the quality of my Chipmunks. Theodor actually got in the most, probably due to him being a retrained midfielder?

On to the individual stats, first up Alvin.

Screenshot_2020-05-24-22-14-07-770_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.ef243ee4bd56fcb2d9acfb202969c8de.jpg

7 goals and 18 assists. Higher rating than Aboukhlal (his backup) and more games so what the hell! Didn't score that many but assists are good I guess.

Second Chipmunk, Simon.

23 goals and still 6 assists being my man in the middle. Decent rating also, but expected a little bit more goals from him.

Last Chipmunk, Theodor.

12 goals and 3 assists. Strange to see him have more goals and way less assists than Alvin. 

Our players scored us a solid 69 points. Combined with the bonus it gives us 100 points. 

Probably easy to beat if you pick a better team which plays European games but I had fun doing it with these names in the 3. Liga!

Thanks for reading and I just noticed we can go back to the MLS. Want to go for a Western team this time but suggestions are welcome! Already checked, no Drago's to pick namewise 😁

You m picked an actual Alvin, Simon, and Theodore for this 😂 😂 

Yep, really a bit disappointed there were only Theodor's in the game, no Theodore's 😄

I had a few seasons with Kaiserslautern on last years game and they’re a nice team to manage. I’ve paused my movie career at the moment but will return to it later. You’re doing very well in yours though. Keep it up.

I'm actually continuing a bit with them for some casual play at the moment. Pretty fun although their expectations in the second season were a bit high after promotion but we managed.

Extra challenge with the names 😂

Nice way to cover up my lack of TT expertise 😀

Next up: Alvin and the Chipmunks!

Not sure if I've actually seen this one but the challenge itself is pretty straightforward.

Pick three players whose names start with A(lvin), S(imon) and T(heodore). Do a triple threat challenge (by playing them in the striker positions) and the score will be their total assists and goals.

Bonus points for team of the week (+1), team of the year (+10), and world player of the year (+25).

With all those bonuses in play it only seemed fit to manage a world class team with world class players. Well maybe I missed the part of all the bonuses but we went with Kaiserslautern. In the 3. Liga in Germany..

Ah well, not changing it now since we finished it but you probably can get a lot of bonus points I guess. Or regular points with like, I don't know, skilled players.

However, off we go to present our amazing Chipmunks!

First up, our "Alvin". Bought from the Dutch powerhouse located in Eindhoven. Or at least when I manage them, FC Eindhoven!

Seems decent and a lot of yellow so with a bit of training quite flexible.

Next, our "Simon". Bought from Belgian side Oosterzonen Oosterwijk for 30k. I was just searching for a willing striker with high finishing and he came up. Pretty solid performer though.

And last, our "Theodore". I loaded up a bunch of leagues and searched for the actual name but there aren't any I could find. Close enough I think!

I was going to play two strikers with Theodor as my AMC but the rules of a TT state you play your guys up front so I ended up retraining him as an AML to play in the forward IF spot on the left.

Fun fact; I only could find three Alvin's, and two of them are Dutch. You can actually come pretty close doing this at a higher lever, depending on some leniency from @Thepremiermanager.

For example, playing Calvin Stengs, Simone Zaza and Theodor Gebre Selassie (who looks pretty decent as a winger) up front. Calvin wouldn't qualify but all the Alvin's are lower league material.

Not going into much detail here, the league was pretty fun to play in. A lot of known clubs were actually in the same league. For example, Uerdingen and Unterhaching (probably my age) but also 1860 München, Hansa Rostock, Braunschweig (played Bundesliga in 2014?) and Duisburg.

In the end we won the league pretty convincingly. Cup we went out of in the early stages (read: first round) so that wasn't good for our TT.

We got a decent amount of mentions in the Team of the week.

And even one (well two) mentions in the team of the year.

Why Aboukhlal is in I don't know, he only played 14 games.

In total that gives us 31 bonus points. Not too shabby considering the quality of my Chipmunks. Theodor actually got in the most, probably due to him being a retrained midfielder?

On to the individual stats, first up Alvin.

Screenshot_2020-05-24-22-14-07-770_com_sega.soccer.thumb.jpg.ef243ee4bd56fcb2d9acfb202969c8de.jpg

7 goals and 18 assists. Higher rating than Aboukhlal (his backup) and more games so what the hell! Didn't score that many but assists are good I guess.

Second Chipmunk, Simon.

Well done mate. Like the others said, you made it hard work by choosing the exact names but I like the effort you put in! 

Great work.
