    I take such joy in watching a bunch of lads who I generally enjoy reading the careers of absolutely lose it over a horrible challenge. Brilliant narrative.

    Yeah it certainly will be. What a pain trying to think of a plan but I honestly think there’s no best plan here really as all options have pluses and minuses. Our challenge creator is probably sitting laughing at us all but trust me, don’t give him the satisfaction.

    Week 2 - One Club Challenge
    Time to reveal this week’s challenge. Here’s a reminder of who is facing who in the second week of the competition.

    Last week’s challenge was a fairly straight-forward offering to ease you in however this one should get you thinking a bit more about how to go about it. During my time on vibe I have developed a habit of trying to link numerous other sports to FMM challenges including golf, darts and myself and @Ashez once even played a game of snooker (on FMM).
    I don’t want to strike fear into the hearts of @George Traistă, @RichD and @broodje kip but this one is based on a golf “mini-game” although don’t worry too much as it’s nothing like what you faced at Augusta.
    This is in fact the concept this week’s challenge is based on.
    You don’t need to watch the video as everything is explained below but you will* get 50 bonus points if you do.
    *won’t
    The Challenge
    So as you (probably haven’t) just seen above the idea is that they all play a hole of golf with a single club, either a driver, putter or 9 iron. “How on Earth have they linked that to an FMM challenge” I hear you ask, well here’s how.
    Essentially you will be using a full squad of 18 players made up entirely of either defenders, midfielders or attackers. You can choose which you want to do it with but the players you use must be light green, which is natural, in the position category you have chosen.
    To avoid confusion as to what constitutes a defender or attacker and to get a good balance between the options each of the individual three sections offer this is what is going to be used for this challenge.
    DEFENDERS - DL, DR, DC, WBL, WBR MIDFIELDERS - DMC, MC, ML, MR, AMC ATTACKERS - AML, AMR, FL, FR, ST So, if you choose to go for a full squad of attackers your squad of 18 must all be natural in any of the 5 available allocated positions above. You won’t be allowed to retrain them into any other positions.
    The players you sign cannot be natural in more than one category so if you are going for attackers and sign a natural AML he cannot also be natural at ML.
    The Club
    Considering this is loosely inspired by golf we are taking a trip to Scotland this week to the home of Golf which is St. Andrews, a town on the east coast of Fife. Therefore you will get to choose your club this week, from any of the below options all of which are clubs based in Fife.
    Dunfermline (Scottish Championship) Raith Rovers (Scottish Championship) East Fife (Scottish League One) Cowdenbeath (Scottish League Two) Points
    Points will be
    League Points + 3pts per match won in the cups.
    There are also points available for whichever position you choose, and it is up to you on how bold you are going to be with your initial selection. These are as follows:
    Defenders - 2pts per team goal. 1pt per team clean sheet. Midfielders - 1pt per team goal. 1pt per team clean sheet. Attackers - 1pt per team goal. 3pts per team clean sheet. If you are sacked you will not receive any points and record a 0.
    Clarifications
    You can choose any of the 4 listed clubs to manage. Your squad must only consist of 18 players which must be either defenders, midfielders or attackers depending on what you choose. There are no limits on transfers, you can buy, sell and loan who you want. You can buy and sell as you go as long as your squad size remains at 18 throughout and all 18 are natural in your chosen position. Natural = Light green. Nothing else is acceptable. You cannot retrain players to other categories during the season. You also can’t have any players natural in more than one category. You will play the full Scottish season. Original database only and you can load whichever leagues you want. Coaching badges and any reputation is allowed. No cheating, reloading, holidaying or use of unlockables whatsoever. You may only attempt this challenge once and as soon as you have started the save you can’t restart. If asked you must provide the save file and failure to do so could result in expulsion from the tournament. Tiebreaker will be most wins in all competitions again like last week. Screenshots Required
    Please send the following screenshots to me in the thread you have used so far this tournament. I might ask for extras if needed.
    League Table Full Fixture List Manager Profile Transfers Page Squad List in order of Appearances, and Attributes Page of your 3 Players with the most Appearances. Squad List sorted by Position after both January Transfer Window and End of Season. Deadline - Friday 22nd January 11:59PM GMT
    Good luck and if you have any questions get them flooding in.

    Neither is most holes won throughout the challenge.
    Obviously I have no right to decide how your own H2H is decided so if @RichD is the winner of the H2H then that’s great and I can’t argue with that.
    But for the purposes of the vibe challenge, all three scores of -9 are equal and therefore none of you are ahead or behind each other.
    Also nobody wins the challenge in January. Somebody could attempt the challenge before the end of the year and beat your score and then any playoff would be unneeded.
    Maybe the best way would be to crown Rich the winner of this H2H, and then if nobody else attempts Augusta by the end of the year then you can play the playoff then to decide the winner of the green jacket (it doesn’t necessarily have to be on the same save).

    Well done all three of you on completing the challenge, great stuff and good scores as well.
    But you don’t get away from Augusta that easily...
    Sorry @RichD but you haven’t won anything yet! The vibe green jacket is only presented to the winning score at the end of the year to the person with the best score and someone could beat yours and also if there are players tied which you three are you will need to play a play-off (18th hole again) until we have a winner. @George Traistă and @broodje kip still have a chance

    Vibe Premier League 2021, Week 1 Results
    The time has arrived to reveal how everyone got on in week one. Let’s take a look at who has got off to a flyer and who has given themselves something to think about after the opening stanza.
    I’m going for a slightly different style of results post this year so you can have a similar feel as what I got throughout the week on a result-by-result basis.
    Here are a reminder of who was facing who.

    Before I start you will remember that those knocked out of cups before starting their season will get the average number of points achieved from everyone else from those competitions added to their total as it would be completely unfair for them to get 0 from it as a result of AI bullshit. These average totals were 15 from the Copa Sudamericana and 11 from the Copa Argentina so keep that in mind as I go through the results.
    The first two results to come in were those of @Aaron Thornton and @ScottishFMM both submitting the day after the challenge was out. Aaron chose Sebastián Ramirez as his “Maradona” whilst Scottish went for a striker in Elisio Vasquez. Both bagged a similar number of goals (24 + 27 respectively) but the assists hurt Scottish only bagging the 3 and since there were 2 points available for these that could prove very costly. Aaron managed 17 assists and 31 wins in all comps to give him an “unfinished” total of 136 and Scottish got to 105 thanks to 24 wins but will end with a higher total as he was knocked out of both cups beforehand.
    Aaron Thornton - 136 (Copa Argentina points to be added) ScottishFMM - 105 (Points from both cups to be added) The next two to submit were @RichD and @broodje kip. Rich laid down a bit of a marker here with an impressive showing achieving 30 goals and 16 assists from Alan Velasco. Add two good cup runs to that total and his 39 wins would give him a very meaty total. Impressive total and straightaway it looks certain that he has done enough to beat Aaron this week, as good as it was though it wasn’t the best score of the week so keep an eye out for that later on.
    Broodje then submitted and his score ended up heading an incredibly tight mid-table battle this week with just 11 points separating the 4th highest scorer and the 8th highest. He managed 32 wins in all comps and 19 assists from his player Facundo Torboda who also ripped the net 17 times. This all gave him a total of 151 but he didn’t compete in the Copa Argentina.
    RichD - 179 broodje kip - 151 (Copa Argentina points to be added) Aaron Thornton - 136 (Copa Argentina points to be added) ScottishFMM - 105 (Points from both cups to be added) What the results above confirm is that with a total splitting Rich and Aaron we have our first result of the week as Rich has got off to a winning start and 3 points on the board.
    The next pair to take a look at are actually direct rivals this week in @Jsavfc and @Kanegan. Now I predicted a close battle between these two although what I didn’t expect was for it to be this close. It seems that Villa is developing a habit of getting involved in thrillers on vibe.
    The player choices were a mirror of the first two results here as Villa chose Ramirez with Kane going for Vasquez and I think instead of rambling I will just let the results do the talking here.
    Villa
    Goals - 11
    Assists - 13 (26)
    Wins - 38 (114)
    Total - 151
    Kane
    Goals - 34
    Assists - 12 (24)
    Wins - 31 (93)
    Total - 151
    Oh wow, dead level. A draw written all over it... You’d think anyway. This is the VPL and stranger things have happened. The tiebreaker for this challenge was total wins which favours Villa, he will finish higher in the weekly leaderboard and could still snatch a win which would be very cruel on Kane but at the end of the day the tie-breakers are there for a reason!
    RichD - 179 Jsavfc - 151 Kanegan - 151 broodje kip - 151 (Copa Argentina points to be added) Aaron Thornton - 136 (Copa Argentina points to be added) ScottishFMM - 105 (Points from both cups to be added) Everything was starting to get a bit exciting at this point as the next set of results came in belonging to defending champion 🏆 @Ian and @George Traistă. Both went with players already at the club in Franco Benitez and Lautoro Ovando respectively.
    Ian said before the tournament that it might take him a while to get into his stride and there were signs of that in this performance although his total does look lower than what it actually is due to being out of both cups before starting. His player managed 13 in both goals and assists and 29 wins in all competitions. This meant his “running” total was 126 but will get better.
    George put in a very good showing however on his first VPL start. Ovando smashed it with 22 goals and more importantly than that 23 assists giving him a very good base to work from. 33 wins in all competitions as well and you don’t need me to tell you that will work this week although it’s not certain that will be enough to beat Sandwich yet.
    RichD - 179 George Traista - 167 Jsavfc - 151 Kanegan - 151 broodje kip - 151 (Copa Argentina points to be added) Aaron Thornton - 136 (Copa Argentina points to be added) Ian - 126 (Points from both cups to be added) ScottishFMM - 105 (Points from both cups to be added) It was just as well I was sitting down when the next result came in as it belonged to @Woody who wasn’t last for the first time in living memory. You will remember earlier on that I said Rich’s 179 wasn’t the highest score of the week, did it belong to Woody?
    ...
    No, it didn’t, but this was still a solid performance from the only VPL ever-present. Woody was the second manager of the week to use Facundo Toborda who bagged 26 goals and 10 assists. Good numbers. Add 36 wins to that and this put Woody well and truly in the pack and in with a very good chance of getting a huge win over Ian in the first week.
    So @smoggy90 was the last to submit this week and it was very much a case of leaving the best until last. Someone (me) called this before the event and Smog didn’t let me down. He used Bruno Guelfi who proved to be an inspired choice banging in 39 goals and securing 24 assists.
    That puts him on 85 meaning to pip Rich to first place this week he needed 32 wins in all competitions and he managed 34 to give him a total of 187 which was surpassed by nobody this week. Smog takes the win over Scottish and secures the bonus point for highest score as well.
     
    What that final result also confirmed was the average points for the cups and once they were added to everyone’s scores the other 3 results were confirmed. And unbelievably they were all draws! Fairly apt given the close nature of the scores this week but I doubt 3/5 draws in a week has happened before in this competition.
    Final Scores
    smoggy90 - 187 RichD - 179 George Traista - 167 broodje kip - 162 Woody - 154 Ian - 152 Jsavfc - 151* Kanegan - 151 Aaron Thornton - 147 ScottishFMM - 131 *Ahead on tie-break (most wins)
    Results, Week 1
    @RichD 4-0 @Aaron Thornton
    @ScottishFMM 0-4 @smoggy90
    @broodje kip 3-3 @George Traistă
    @Ian 2-2 @Woody
    @Jsavfc 1-1 @Kanegan
    So well done to Rich on his win and Smog for his bonus point win. Unfortunately Scottish as the lowest points scorer will be deducted a point but I think we are in for a good competition this year if the closeness of this week’s results are anything to go by.
    Here is how the table looks early doors. If two people are level on points, this will be the tiebreaker:
    H2H record against each other. If that match was a draw, hasn’t been played or there is a tie involving three or more members then... Overall competition points.
    Thanks to @FuddledFox aka “Gilgamesh” for the table.
    See you tomorrow as we look ahead to week 2 with the next challenge being posted on Friday.

    I tried signing every single outfield player 35+ and they were all retiring, so couldn’t get anyone, I then managed I thought to get a 34 year old who was turning 35 in august and he retired before coming 🙈I have noticed a big decline this year on older players making people retire earlier.
    Well done @broodje kip, good effort mate 😁

    No player that want to sign... I had to make offers to almost 300 players (all the available players of 34 yo and older) and only 4 wanted to sign, the rest didn't sign as they plan to retire

    So well done to Rich on his win and Smog for his bonus point win. Unfortunately Scottish as the lowest points scorer will be deducted a point but I think we are in for a good competition this year if the closeness of this week’s results are anything to go by.
    Here is how the table looks early doors. If two people are level on points, this will be the tiebreaker:
    H2H record against each other. If that match was a draw, hasn’t been played or there is a tie involving three or more members then... Overall competition points.
    Thanks to @FuddledFox aka “Gilgamesh” for the table.
    See you tomorrow as we look ahead to week 2 with the next challenge being posted on Friday.

    Vibe Premier League 2021, Week 1 Results
    The time has arrived to reveal how everyone got on in week one. Let’s take a look at who has got off to a flyer and who has given themselves something to think about after the opening stanza.
    I’m going for a slightly different style of results post this year so you can have a similar feel as what I got throughout the week on a result-by-result basis.
    Here are a reminder of who was facing who.

    Before I start you will remember that those knocked out of cups before starting their season will get the average number of points achieved from everyone else from those competitions added to their total as it would be completely unfair for them to get 0 from it as a result of AI bullshit. These average totals were 15 from the Copa Sudamericana and 11 from the Copa Argentina so keep that in mind as I go through the results.
    The first two results to come in were those of @Aaron Thornton and @ScottishFMM both submitting the day after the challenge was out. Aaron chose Sebastián Ramirez as his “Maradona” whilst Scottish went for a striker in Elisio Vasquez. Both bagged a similar number of goals (24 + 27 respectively) but the assists hurt Scottish only bagging the 3 and since there were 2 points available for these that could prove very costly. Aaron managed 17 assists and 31 wins in all comps to give him an “unfinished” total of 136 and Scottish got to 105 thanks to 24 wins but will end with a higher total as he was knocked out of both cups beforehand.
    Aaron Thornton - 136 (Copa Argentina points to be added) ScottishFMM - 105 (Points from both cups to be added) The next two to submit were @RichD and @broodje kip. Rich laid down a bit of a marker here with an impressive showing achieving 30 goals and 16 assists from Alan Velasco. Add two good cup runs to that total and his 39 wins would give him a very meaty total. Impressive total and straightaway it looks certain that he has done enough to beat Aaron this week, as good as it was though it wasn’t the best score of the week so keep an eye out for that later on.
    Broodje then submitted and his score ended up heading an incredibly tight mid-table battle this week with just 11 points separating the 4th highest scorer and the 8th highest. He managed 32 wins in all comps and 19 assists from his player Facundo Torboda who also ripped the net 17 times. This all gave him a total of 151 but he didn’t compete in the Copa Argentina.
    RichD - 179 broodje kip - 151 (Copa Argentina points to be added) Aaron Thornton - 136 (Copa Argentina points to be added) ScottishFMM - 105 (Points from both cups to be added) What the results above confirm is that with a total splitting Rich and Aaron we have our first result of the week as Rich has got off to a winning start and 3 points on the board.
    The next pair to take a look at are actually direct rivals this week in @Jsavfc and @Kanegan. Now I predicted a close battle between these two although what I didn’t expect was for it to be this close. It seems that Villa is developing a habit of getting involved in thrillers on vibe.
    The player choices were a mirror of the first two results here as Villa chose Ramirez with Kane going for Vasquez and I think instead of rambling I will just let the results do the talking here.
    Villa
    Goals - 11
    Assists - 13 (26)
    Wins - 38 (114)
    Total - 151
    Kane
    Goals - 34
    Assists - 12 (24)
    Wins - 31 (93)
    Total - 151
    Oh wow, dead level. A draw written all over it... You’d think anyway. This is the VPL and stranger things have happened. The tiebreaker for this challenge was total wins which favours Villa, he will finish higher in the weekly leaderboard and could still snatch a win which would be very cruel on Kane but at the end of the day the tie-breakers are there for a reason!
    RichD - 179 Jsavfc - 151 Kanegan - 151 broodje kip - 151 (Copa Argentina points to be added) Aaron Thornton - 136 (Copa Argentina points to be added) ScottishFMM - 105 (Points from both cups to be added) Everything was starting to get a bit exciting at this point as the next set of results came in belonging to defending champion 🏆 @Ian and @George Traistă. Both went with players already at the club in Franco Benitez and Lautoro Ovando respectively.
    Ian said before the tournament that it might take him a while to get into his stride and there were signs of that in this performance although his total does look lower than what it actually is due to being out of both cups before starting. His player managed 13 in both goals and assists and 29 wins in all competitions. This meant his “running” total was 126 but will get better.
    George put in a very good showing however on his first VPL start. Ovando smashed it with 22 goals and more importantly than that 23 assists giving him a very good base to work from. 33 wins in all competitions as well and you don’t need me to tell you that will work this week although it’s not certain that will be enough to beat Sandwich yet.
    RichD - 179 George Traista - 167 Jsavfc - 151 Kanegan - 151 broodje kip - 151 (Copa Argentina points to be added) Aaron Thornton - 136 (Copa Argentina points to be added) Ian - 126 (Points from both cups to be added) ScottishFMM - 105 (Points from both cups to be added) It was just as well I was sitting down when the next result came in as it belonged to @Woody who wasn’t last for the first time in living memory. You will remember earlier on that I said Rich’s 179 wasn’t the highest score of the week, did it belong to Woody?
    ...
    No, it didn’t, but this was still a solid performance from the only VPL ever-present. Woody was the second manager of the week to use Facundo Toborda who bagged 26 goals and 10 assists. Good numbers. Add 36 wins to that and this put Woody well and truly in the pack and in with a very good chance of getting a huge win over Ian in the first week.
    So @smoggy90 was the last to submit this week and it was very much a case of leaving the best until last. Someone (me) called this before the event and Smog didn’t let me down. He used Bruno Guelfi who proved to be an inspired choice banging in 39 goals and securing 24 assists.
    That puts him on 85 meaning to pip Rich to first place this week he needed 32 wins in all competitions and he managed 34 to give him a total of 187 which was surpassed by nobody this week. Smog takes the win over Scottish and secures the bonus point for highest score as well.
     
    What that final result also confirmed was the average points for the cups and once they were added to everyone’s scores the other 3 results were confirmed. And unbelievably they were all draws! Fairly apt given the close nature of the scores this week but I doubt 3/5 draws in a week has happened before in this competition.
    Final Scores
    smoggy90 - 187 RichD - 179 George Traista - 167 broodje kip - 162 Woody - 154 Ian - 152 Jsavfc - 151* Kanegan - 151 Aaron Thornton - 147 ScottishFMM - 131 *Ahead on tie-break (most wins)

    Before the game kicks off, these young lads will give it there all. No pressure, nothing to lose. 
    Klopp meanwhile, can NEVER moan about the amount of games, or his players being tired again. Virtually full strength when be knew he would be against kids today, could of rested Salah, Mane, Fabinho etc etc. Total dick move. 
    Part of me actually hopes a big name for Liverpool gets an injury tonight, imagine if Salah does his hamstring.... Wonder what Klopp will blame that on...
