  1. Another great season! Good luck in the next few. Hopefully you can get him on the pitch enough!

    Well you’ve got nothing to worry about with me as I have a feeling this is not going to go to plan. 😂Just about to play first league game.

    Zullo has just got injured for the first 2 months of the season.😡

    I can confirm I am going that way.😀 I’m playing through all the friendlies and cup games before the season starts and can confirm that I officially think the hot fix is utter shite. Proper rotation required right from the off and it seems worse than other saves. Hopefully there’ll be enough gaps between the league games.

    Hello

    Hello there, I’ve got relatives who support Leeds so I always look out for their score. Still can’t believe you actually got fined for that spying incident. Be nice to see you back in the premiership if you can make it!😀

    A rather nice feel good challenge for the final league week I think.😀
  7. Yeah I was just thinking before that the way youth players fitness has been hit on the winter update might make this much trickier. I’ll give it a go myself once I’m finished my Queen’s Park career and whatever score I get even if it’s shite I’ll put it up.😀
  8. The Amateur Challenge I was going to do a lower league career at some point and when @BatiGoal posted this at the end of last week I thought I may as well have a crack at this. Credit to @Ashez for originally creating this challenge and also to @BatiGoal for updating it with more amateur teams. I’m doing this as I’m at the stage where I find building up a lower league team a decent enough challenge. I’m not sure how far I’ll go with this but I’ve loaded up Scotland, Wales, Portugal and England so I could do more than one of the teams if I hit the ground running. Anyway I’ll quit rambling and make a start with my first team choice. Team Queen’s Park Football Club Queen’s Park Football Club nicknamed “The Spiders” are the only amateur club in the Scottish Professional Football League. Their Latin motto “Ludere Causa Ludendi” means “To Play for the Sake of Playing” in English and that tells us that they are very proud of their amateur status and have no desire to turn professional. My job is to change that! 😉 Even though the club is fully amateur their home stadium is Hampden Park which is also the home of the Scottish National Team. Hampden Park has a capacity of 51,866 but Queen’s Park’s average attendance is only about 750 so work to be done there. Outside of Hampden Park there is a smaller ground called the Lesser Hampden and the club use that for training and reserve/youth games which explains how they have much better training facilities than any of the other Scottish League Two team. They have quite a rich early history having won the Scottish Cup a massive 10 times with only both Rangers and Celtic (not surprisingly) having won it more. However the last year they won it was in 1893. They are also the only Scottish team to ever appear in an FA Cup Final having appeared in both 1884 and 1885 finals. If you want to read more about the history of the club head over to their Wiki page which makes decent reading. Season 1 update to come either tomorrow or the next day.
  9. Season 9 I’m back with another update of this Amateur Challenge. How did we get on in season 9? Transfers We made a few transfers in a bid to improve our chances of competing on all fronts. We brought in James Bree who is a decent right wing back. Braz was bought to play as centre back and Doyle-Hayes and Meade were bought to bolster our midfield options. Sterwart who we had on loan a few seasons back was available on a free so we got him in to play as inside forward. Valero was bought in January to give us more options as he can play either in midfield or inside forward. We had a good few outgoings but the main two were Judd and Harvie who have been great players for the club but I was looking to improve upon Judd at centre back and Harvie who has been a great left wing back was getting on a bit and thought I’d let him go as he wasn’t going to be playing as much. Full list below but again some transfers were made in June after the season had finished. Betfred Cup No problems here as we put Aberdeen to the sword in a one sided 3-0 victory in the final to win yet another Betred Cup. League We flexed our muscles here as we only lost one game all season. Looking like we are at the domestic domination stage now. Scottish Cup We ploughed through Livingston in the final as we won 3-0 to win our first domestic treble. Iain Watt was the main man as he bagged a nice brace. Champions League We were less than convincing in this competition this year but we battled our way to the final where Atletico Madrid awaited us. We played ok in the final but I’m afraid our forwards fired blanks and we lost 1-0 to end our hopes of a quadruple. Fixtures No problems domestically but the Champions League was a different story as our form was sketchy at best as we struggled particularly during the group stages where we really missed our best midfielder Jesus who missed the first seven months of the season through injury. Full fixture list below. Manager My financial control is rising big style now as we continue to spend within our means. Nice looking history page with only the one league defeat and the Champions League final taking some of the shine off it. Conclusion We are now formidable domestically but the Champions League is proving difficult to win again. If we’d won the final against Atletico Madrid then I’d have ended this career now but I can’t end it like this so we continue. Thanks for reading
  10. Al-Faraj looks like a half decent left back. Must have been a right surprise for him when he turned up to training and got told he’s going to be playing up front!😆 It’s looking highly likely that you’ll hold off the mighty Liverpool for the title now unfortunately. 😡 Maybe Ethiopia next?

    That must’ve took some working out.😂👍 It’s looking highly likely that the current top four will remain in place next week. I’m still proud of my performance and can hold my head up high.😁 I want to thank all of my fans and I hope to go out with a respectable performance next week.😀

    Yeah I was thinking the same as I found scoring difficult at times but I think losing a midfielder would’ve messed my system up totally tbh. I just went with something similar to what I used in the goalkeeper challenge except I had one of the wing backs inverted. Couldn’t score enough but kept the scores close and got some good results until near the end. Ironically this and the GK challenge have turned out to be my two best performances by far and most seemed to hate the two challenges.😀

    2019 Vibe Premier League

    Well done @Foxy, a truly titanic performance.👍 I enjoyed this one as I could more or less play my preferred system but it’s a good job it wasn’t a full season challenge as my form had gone by the end and think I was about to go on a horrible run tbh. What position did everybody leave alone? I left the CM.

    I’m not certain but I don’t think so unless it’s a hacked phone. I’ve got a Samsung galaxy tab a and I’m going to try to get it to work on that but I’m not convinced it’ll run well.

    I don’t think Sam appreciates my input on this thread.☹️
  16. I was originally going to make it under 16’s but when I loaded it up and looked there wasn’t too many available.😂 You’ll probably have to hit the ground running to get the players on your side.😀

    Nintendo

    Yeah World was much better. I played the the remakes of both on GBA but not loads and I would love to play the originals again but don’t have means to atm. I suppose I would probably have to emulate them and even that wouldn’t be the same. I do have a PSP that is just gathering dust and I know that can be made to play the emulators but can’t say I’m very keen on doing it tbh. I may get a switch for my birthday though as I’ve been thinking about it for a while but we’ll have to see.

    Nintendo

    Yeah I think it would be a good nostalgia trip for me to play some of the NES games again but I think it would only last about half an hour before I got tired of it. Well apart from Mario 3 which I could see myself proper enjoying again. I had the GBA classic version of it for my DS but I gave my DS away over a year ago with all my games and I wish I didn’t now tbh.
  19. Good luck with this.😉 I like the look of some of the youngsters you’ve brought in!

    Nintendo

    My first experience of gaming was with the NES and I had a lot of fun at the time but I have a feeling a lot of the games will be rather frustrating as they were short and often really hard and without any save game available. I played all the Mario games (obviously), a good few of the Mega Man series of which I think the earlier ones were the better ones but I may be wrong. Duck Tales was another favourite but probably shit if played now. We had a man that came from Alnwick in a van who rented videos and he also had games and we’d hire them and if they were good we’d just keep paying him every week to keep them longer. I enjoyed Darkwing Duck and think it was almost identical to one of the Mega Man games. Paper boy was another good one and I can probably think of more. They are probably crap now but they bring back memories. I’ll try and think of more that I played.

    If it’s the old CM games you’re after I’m sure Si made CM 01-02 available for free a few years ago. You might be able to get that working on your phone.

    Contain strategy

    I’ve started using it at times recently. I never used to ever go below counter and I’d use that in a bid to draw the opposition onto me to try and create more counter attack opportunities. I just recently tried contain during games in this weeks VPL challenge and felt it worked at times. I’d just cycle it during games which you may think is strange when I’m often moaning about rotation but I love anything tactical and have no problems with in game tweaking. I wouldn’t want to use it for the whole match unless I was a totally great team as with a shit team I think the opposition would eventually swarm all over me but it would be interesting how it would work with a beast of a team.

    Chelsea’s Bad Eggs!

    Thanks, it’s an idea I’ve had for a while and thought it might interest some if they’re struggling for an idea for a short save.😀 Cheers, think I’ll give it a go myself.😀 Good idea and I’ll say that you can replace as many as you want as long as the replacements are English and under 17 on the day they’re signed. I actually loaded the game up and got rid of the eight players and the squad is still good but mainly in defence so it becomes all about trying to get goals and assists from the eight or more youngsters as they’re worth a lot of points.😀
  24. Chelsea’s Bad Eggs Over the last few years we’ve seen Chelsea F.C. have rather successful seasons where they look like a fantastic team only to usually follow that up with a poor campaign which often results in them replacing their manager. They seem to have a policy which some would argue has been rather successful in demanding ultimate success from their managers and being ruthless as soon as their expectations appear under threat. Everyone probably has their own opinion on the situation but mine is that the players have cottoned on to the situation and have full control at Chelsea. If they decide they don’t agree with the manager they can just down tools which will always result in a new manager coming in. Anyway that all changes now as for the sake of this challenge the club have decided they want to improve their reputation and your job as new manger is to make big changes to the playing staff. This is a one season challenge where your job is to get rid of the bad eggs in the dressing room and replace them with young English players in a bid to improve the clubs reputation. Rules Load up the English leagues and any other leagues you want and take charge of Chelsea. The challenge will last just one season. On your first day as manager go into the selection page and sort your players by their value. The eight highest valued players are your bad eggs and must be sold or demoted never to play for Chelsea again. Players who are on loan at the club count and you just need to end the loan but players currently out on loan don’t count so just skip them. You can then replace the eight players with young English players but they must be under 17 on the day you sign them. You cannot sign any other players but you can make as many outgoing transfers as you want. Own tactics only. Coaching badges are allowed. No unlockables or use of any editors. No cheating or reloading of any kind. Evidence Screenshots required of the following. Chelsea squad sorted by value on your first day as manager. Transfers page. Profile page of each of your eight young players on the day of signing. Final league table Full fixture list Stats of each of your eight young players post season showing any goals/assists. Squad appearances. Proof that none of the eight highest valued players played (only if you couldn’t sell them). Why not post a career thread for all of us to follow. Scoring League points Goal Difference +\- 15 points for winning the Premier League 10 points for winning the FA Cup, League Cup or Europa League. 5 points for every goal scored by one of your eight young English players in all competitions. 2 points for every assist scored by one of your eight young English players in all competitions. Have fun! Leaderboard
  25. Going to be tricky now but you never know! I’m assuming that’s the same Daniel Harvie that I had at Queen’s Park. A nice left wing back he is. Really enjoyed that.😀 Only problem is I had a DM off @Nucleus just last week and he said he’d bought the club and wanted to know if I’d become the new manager. I said of course I would and now I come on here and see you still in the dugout.☹️
