    This must be the worst penalty shootout in history. To rub salt in the wound im the Betis manager. So not only did I have to witness this, i didnt even have a trophy at the end of it.

    I know you're all thinking you've got away with it but that isn't the case as here I am with the odds.
    This tournament is sponsored by FoxBet who are partly responsible for the odds.

    To Win The Tournament
    After careful consideration with @Foxy we came to the conclusion that there is almost nothing between the favourites for this title. With both members of team Scotland @samhardy and @1759 qualifying for the VPL playoffs a couple of months ago they have been installed as the very narrow tournament favourites ahead of Japan containing CC champion @Foxy and the previously world class @Ashez.
    Last year's beaten finalists England in @Rob and @Woody are more than in with a good shout as well as are @smoggy90 and @Mr Tree representing Czechia. It wouldn't be a surprise to see any of these 4 take the title.
    @Kanegan and @DutchTony are without doubt the underdogs mostly stemming from Tony's disastrous VPL campaign and Kanegan's early exit at the last Challenge Cup.
    Scotland - 5/2F
    Japan - 3/1
    England - 10/3
    Czechia - 13/2
    Brazil - 16/1
     
    Golden Mobile Award
    This is also up for grabs and very tight but @Foxy is the favourite for this one after topping the VPL league phase and winning the CC just ahead of VPL champion @samhardy. VPL semi finalist and former Olympic champion @smoggy90 and @Rob respectively aren't far behind in the betting and it wouldn't be a surprise at all to see either of these walk away with the prestigious Golden Mobile.
    Slightly further behind but in with a chance are @1759 and @Woody who as we have seen can both post extremely high numbers in the past. The enigma that is @Ashez follows before @Kanegan and @DutchTony are also the underdogs in this one but will relish trying to upset the apple cart especially Tony.
    Foxy - 10/11F

    Emphatically yes
    There wasn't anything the whisky nosed twat failed to adapt to during his managerial career. Winning titles with players who had no right to win them. Throw his shithousery into the mix as well which Pep and Klopp couldn't match.
    I cannot stand him but Fergie is still the best manager I've ever seen.

    samhardy got a reaction from Foxy in Man City - Liverpool Title Race Challenge   
    Man City - Liverpool Title Race - Challenge
    The sun has set on another Premier League season and this particular one saw one of the most exciting title races the English top flight has ever seen.
    Both Manchester City and Liverpool have relentlessly gone about their business with the lead changing hands what seemed to be every week. Despite Liverpool having it wrapped up in December as usual in the end it was the Blues who won their 6th league title despite Liverpool finishing on 97 points which would be enough to win the league 99 times out of 100 you would have thought.
    Liverpool had a 9 point gap going into the new year but a loss to their title rivals saw the start of a period of dropped points, but even after that they picked back up again and forced City to win a remarkable 14 straight matches to win the title. Both teams still have a major final to look forward to as well, Liverpool will take on Spurs in their second consecutive Champions League final whilst City face Watford in the FA Cup final looking for a domestic treble.
    With both squads so far ahead of the rest in England this season I've put together a challenge to commemorate it.
    The Challenge
    If there is one criticism of the two squads it is now expensively assembled they are. It will be your job to put together a "similar" squad, for whichever team you choose, but for a fraction of the price. It's your choice whether you choose to go with City or Liverpool.
    You won't be able to use any of the players from either team, with the exception of the club captains. That means you can keep Jordan Henderson if you choose Liverpool, or Vincent Kompany if you go for City.
    Then you will be tasked with rebuilding both squads, but for a fraction of the price. The challenge will consist of you directly replacing each player from 18/19's version of the strongest/most used starting XI's, but only spending a maximum of £10M on each player. Each player you buy to replace the listed players has to have the same nationality as the player they are replacing. Example - You go for Liverpool and buy Leroy Fer for £5M to replace Wijnaldum.
    And then the backup players. You will only be permitted to spend a maximum of £10M on the whole of the rest of the squad, which includes all the substitutes and reserves. These can be any nationality.
    So, £10M maximum on a player that matches this description:
    City:
    (Ederson) GK - Brazil (Walker) DR - England KOMPANY (Laporte) DC - France (Zinchenko) DL - Ukraine (Fernandinho) DMC - Brazil (Gundogan) MC - Germany (De Bruyne) MC - Belgium (Bernardo Silva) AMR - Portugal (Aguero) ST - Argentina (Sterling) AML - England Liverpool:
    (Allison) GK - Brazil (Alexander-Arnold) DR - England (Van Dijk) DC - Holland (Matip) DC - Cameroon (Robertson) DL - Scotland (Fabinho) DMC - Brazil HENDERSON (Wijnaldum) MC - Holland (Salah) AMR - Egypt (Firmino) ST - Brazil (Mane) AML - Senegal And a further £10M on the whole of the rest of the squad. Therefore your whole squad will be build for no more than £120M.
    All your replacements have to have a shade of green in the position they are replacing.
    Aim
    This is a simple pass or fail challenge. No points system. The aim is to win the quadruple (Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League).
    Looking at the nationalities it's clear to see that there are some obscure ones in the Liverpool team. So, if you want it easier then go with City, but if you want a challenge them look to Merseyside
    Rules/Clarifications
    You all know the usual rules that apply. No cheating, editing, reloading etc. Screenshots will be required, a career thread is recommended for us all to enjoy.
     Just a few things to clear up:
    You can only keep Henderson (Liverpool) or Kompany (City) from the original squads. Each listed player has to be replaced by someone of the same nationality and cannot cost more than £10M. The replacements have to have a shade of green in that position. Your subs and reserves can only cost £10M between them. It's a maximum of £120M spent overall. You don't have to play that XI every game - that's what the subs/reserves are for. There is a leaderboard below. You will only get on it if you win the quadruple. Note - Due to it being quite a bit harder to complete it with Liverpool, doing so will put you above a member who has completed the challenge with City. Leaderboard

    (Ederson) GK - Brazil (Walker) DR - England KOMPANY (Laporte) DC - France (Zinchenko) DL - Ukraine (Fernandinho) DMC - Brazil (Gundogan) MC - Germany (De Bruyne) MC - Belgium (Bernardo Silva) AMR - Portugal (Aguero) ST - Argentina (Sterling) AML - England Liverpool:
    (Allison) GK - Brazil (Alexander-Arnold) DR - England (Van Dijk) DC - Holland (Matip) DC - Cameroon (Robertson) DL - Scotland (Fabinho) DMC - Brazil HENDERSON (Wijnaldum) MC - Holland (Salah) AMR - Egypt (Firmino) ST - Brazil (Mane) AML - Senegal And a further £10M on the whole of the rest of the squad. Therefore your whole squad will be build for no more than £120M.
    All your replacements have to have a shade of green in the position they are replacing.
    Aim
    This is a simple pass or fail challenge. No points system. The aim is to win the quadruple (Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup, Champions League).
    Looking at the nationalities it's clear to see that there are some obscure ones in the Liverpool team. So, if you want it easier then go with City, but if you want a challenge them look to Merseyside
    Rules/Clarifications
    You all know the usual rules that apply. No cheating, editing, reloading etc. Screenshots will be required, a career thread is recommended for us all to enjoy.
     Just a few things to clear up:
    You can only keep Henderson (Liverpool) or Kompany (City) from the original squads. Each listed player has to be replaced by someone of the same nationality and cannot cost more than £10M. The replacements have to have a shade of green in that position. Your subs and reserves can only cost £10M between them. It's a maximum of £120M spent overall. You don't have to play that XI every game - that's what the subs/reserves are for. There is a leaderboard below. You will only get on it if you win the quadruple. Note - Due to it being quite a bit harder to complete it with Liverpool, doing so will put you above a member who has completed the challenge with City. Leaderboard

    samhardy got a reaction from Foxy in Man City - Liverpool Title Race Challenge   
    Man City - Liverpool Title Race - Challenge
    The sun has set on another Premier League season and this particular one saw one of the most exciting title races the English top flight has ever seen.
    Both Manchester City and Liverpool have relentlessly gone about their business with the lead changing hands what seemed to be every week. Despite Liverpool having it wrapped up in December as usual in the end it was the Blues who won their 6th league title despite Liverpool finishing on 97 points which would be enough to win the league 99 times out of 100 you would have thought.
    Liverpool had a 9 point gap going into the new year but a loss to their title rivals saw the start of a period of dropped points, but even after that they picked back up again and forced City to win a remarkable 14 straight matches to win the title. Both teams still have a major final to look forward to as well, Liverpool will take on Spurs in their second consecutive Champions League final whilst City face Watford in the FA Cup final looking for a domestic treble.
    With both squads so far ahead of the rest in England this season I've put together a challenge to commemorate it.
    The Challenge
    If there is one criticism of the two squads it is now expensively assembled they are. It will be your job to put together a "similar" squad, for whichever team you choose, but for a fraction of the price. It's your choice whether you choose to go with City or Liverpool.
    You won't be able to use any of the players from either team, with the exception of the club captains. That means you can keep Jordan Henderson if you choose Liverpool, or Vincent Kompany if you go for City.
    Then you will be tasked with rebuilding both squads, but for a fraction of the price. The challenge will consist of you directly replacing each player from 18/19's version of the strongest/most used starting XI's, but only spending a maximum of £10M on each player. Each player you buy to replace the listed players has to have the same nationality as the player they are replacing. Example - You go for Liverpool and buy Leroy Fer for £5M to replace Wijnaldum.
    And then the backup players. You will only be permitted to spend a maximum of £10M on the whole of the rest of the squad, which includes all the substitutes and reserves. These can be any nationality.
    So, £10M maximum on a player that matches this description:
    City:
    (Ederson) GK - Brazil (Walker) DR - England KOMPANY (Laporte) DC - France (Zinchenko) DL - Ukraine (Fernandinho) DMC - Brazil (Gundogan) MC - Germany (De Bruyne) MC - Belgium (Bernardo Silva) AMR - Portugal (Aguero) ST - Argentina (Sterling) AML - England Liverpool:
    (Allison) GK - Brazil (Alexander-Arnold) DR - England (Van Dijk) DC - Holland (Matip) DC - Cameroon (Robertson) DL - Scotland (Fabinho) DMC - Brazil HENDERSON (Wijnaldum) MC - Holland (Salah) AMR - Egypt (Firmino) ST - Brazil (Mane) AML - Senegal And a further £10M on the whole of the rest of the squad. Therefore your whole squad will be build for no more than £120M.
    All your replacements have to have a shade of green in the position they are replacing.
