    Been away from the forums for a couple of weeks, so a bit surprised to see you've finished this! Huge congrats mate! Great stuff - apart from messing up the A section. ?

    Just caught up on this mate. A pity I missed the start of the last challenge so I couldn't call you crazy and tell you there was no way you'd get Ronni and Messi to score more than 60. ?
    Congrats on completing this series of challenges. A shame they were't all successful, but you did a fantastic job in each of them, even those that didn't quite make it - they were super ambitious and just the fact that you even came close is actually a huge success in my book. Great to see crazy challenges like this! 
    Anyway, can't wait to see the next step. ?

    There are new challenges created here regularly and they are all great, but one that especially caught my eye was the Premier League Second Chances Challenge by @kts365 : 
    I've been following along as @Mr.Manager attempts it and I'm captivated by the concept - so much so that I need to have a go myself.
    I won't repeat all the rules - you can read about them on the main challenge post - but the target is to get all of the following teams back into the Premier League at some point during the career:

    You don't have to actually manage each of those clubs yourself, they just need to get back into the Premier League at some point. The reason I like this challenge is that it makes you think of all the sneaky things you can do to boost these teams... Lateral thinking is required.
    You also get bonus points for each of the 6 former winners (Manchester United, Chelsea, Manchester City, Arsenal, Blackburn Rovers and Leicester City) who win the Premier League again.
     
    The Starting Club
    With all that out of the way, which club did I choose to start at? The answer will probably surprise you!!
     
    I'm going to try to keep things light with this career, so won't write things up in as much detail as I'm doing for PinaColada (which will run in parallel). For now, I'm keen to get started with this one and see what I can do to restore a bit of pride to some fallen giants.

    Holy Kapowski - I signed him on a free transfer I think!

    I would have gone with an even leakier formation (I use an upside down U) and try to concede in the first few minutes, so I had the whole game to come back! But looking forward to seeing how you go. And that 4 1 4 1 formation looks very interesting!

    I'm just enjoying the challenges this year and it's always nice when someone else does the ground work so I don't have to think them up myself to paraphrase my old master Yoda

    Great job, congratulations mate! But you gotta do something about this addiction thing. I'm half tempted to design an impossible, long, tedious challenge just to see you bang your head against it!! ?

    Just caught up on this whole thing and you're doing awesome. Definitely learning about some new strikers to try out at some point. Even thinking about maybe doing this challenge myself (would start with V), but I guess I better focus on my two unfinished careers first. ?

    Great season - and he's only going to get better! He will go from 47 to 60 to 70 to 80 or even higher before this is through.
    Tweaking the formation to get people to provide assists not score themselves is important. I found turning the extended highlights on for a few games helped me track down some things I needed to change (like the central AM running around holding hands with my striker and pinching some of his goals). 
    As far as budget goes, it's all up from here. I didn't have much money with Celtic, but once I won the Champions League a few times, I seemed to get a bigger budget and could attract better players (and do things like sign top free agents and sell them right away for £40M). Also as you win the CL more, the club's reputation improves which seems to affect player prices. I remember at once point my top players went from being worth £30M to £80M, presumably because the club's reputation had increased. That helps you sell players for a lot more, although it does take a long time to get there and for me I had more money than I could spend by that stage!
    Anyway, keep going, it's all going to get better and better from here. ?

    Oh yeah, to be clear about my comment, I'm having trouble with the reading part. If I get time to read a thread, I'll normally leave a comment even if occasionally it's on the light side. Totally agree we should all be doing that!

    I've been getting worse and worse over the last couple of months and haven't even really visited the site over the last 2 weeks. Just too busy and there's not much I can do about it. ? I guess we will all have patches like that. But I totally believe in leaving comments on others careers and do it whenever I can. I figure if I leave comments on others' careers, they will leave comments on mine and if I don't, then they won't...
    Anyway, I'll keep doing what I can through this busy period!
    @Putzy One thing I was wondering about is whether there is any way to highlight that a career has received an update? There is often a long update post, followed by lots of little comment posts back and forth and I sometimes would like to be able to flag to people that I've actually provided a long update. I have a feeling that people would be more likely to click through and read the update and leave a comment if they know it's an update rather than day 6 of comments. I get like that sometimes - if I have the time I'll check out who's saying what in the comments and maybe chip in, but not if I'm busy. If I know there is an update then I'll definitely go read it.

    Interesting, thanks for sharing! I've had some success with a 2 5 3, which is sort of similar, and the occasional game goes really wrong with that, but also lots of goals. I must try it with the AMC instead.

    Age shall not weary you. You will not suffer the indignity of languishing in the Coventry Reserves after being exchanged for a player who could not have bested you in your prime. 

    You will be remembered for your better days (and they were great).
