    Vibe Super Series: A Mini H2H Tournament
    World War Vibe
     
    So the time has come for the Final of this Mini H2H tournament (along with the 3rd/4th place game) to take place.
    We have two games left with @BatiGoal and @FuddledFox fighting it out in the Final, and @samhardy and @Taffbattling for the Bronze medal
     
    We all agreed that we didn’t want another challenge which required an entire rebuild of the squad, so we brain stormed and we agreed on an idea I pitched a few months back
    World War Vibe!!!!
    The idea is a simple one, take three strikers and score the most amount of goals with them to beat your opponent
    Here’s the twist, we have split each of the pairs into the Axis and Allies, with the highest scorer from the last round choosing which they want to be
     
    The player who will represent the Axis will pick one striker from Germany, Italy and Japan
    The player who will represent the Allies will pick one striker from England, France and America
    Then the two will use their three chosen strikers at the same club and who ever scores the most goals with their chosen three wins
     
    Twist number two is that any player of the opponent’s three nationalities must be sold or demoted:
    I.E. The Axis team can’t have any English, French or American players in their squad and Vice Versa
     
    So a fairly simple idea, but the choice of club could have a positive or negative affect on one of the players depending on the player’s nationality
    As the overall highest scorer in the first round @BatiGoalwas given the choice of picking the club we would all be using, and he had decided to head to Spain as a sort of Neutral territory, and he selected
                                                         
                                                    Atletico Madrid
     Next up we had to decide who would play as the Axis Powers and who would Play as the Allied Nations, and once again we decided that the highest scorer in the previous rounds would pick for their respective games
    So the Final will see Vibe’s #1 Ranked Manager @BatiGoaltake on Vibe’s very own Shakespearean Fox @FuddledFox, and as the highest scorer in the first round between the two BG chose to go with the Axis Powers and will be left to pick a three man strike partnership of German, Italian and Japanese players, while Foxy will chose his three from the Allied Nations using a partnership of English, French and American strikers
     
    In the 3rd/4th place game we see everyone’s favourite Vibe Hooligan @samhardy go up against Vibe’s favourite Handsome, Talented, Welsh Dragon riding Bunny…. Me.  As the highest scorer of the two in the previous round Sam had the choice of who to represent and he has chosen to represent the Allies which leave myself to take the Axis
     
    This will be a single season event and the player who scores the most goals with their three chosen players win’s their respective games and moves up (or down) the new Vibe ranking system
     
    So with all that out of the way………

    This just about sums up my spectacular fall down the rankings, I made a complete mess of this picking Vardy and Lewandowski (plus now he's injured), Oh well maybe 2018 will be my year to prop up all the leaderboards

    H2H UPDATE:TAFF
    So here it is folks, my update for this H2H mini tournament, and after seeing @BatiGoals score, lets just say I'm glad I'm not up against him this round.
    I'm going to start with telling you all just how dumb I am, as I made a huge error during this challenge....
    I was into March when I decided (for the first time) to see how my guys were doing at INT level, and thats when I noticed two of my players playing for Sweden, I thought WTF and checked into it, but I had indeed signed two Swedish players.  
    I signed Kristoffer Nordfeldt from Swansea to be my backup GK (after convincing myself he was Icelandic), then in the January window I purchased Robin Quaison to play as an AP.
    Now I was panicked, but I talked it over with my fellow competitors and @PriZe via PM and showed them the info, and the fact that Nordfeldt had not played a single game, and they told me (very graciously I might add) to carry on as Nordfeldt had provided no impact on the save.  Below is a screen shot from the end of March showing Nordfeldt history.
    Once I noticed the issue, I demoted Nordfeldt and brought in a free agent Moroccan GK instead
    Here's a screen shot from the end of the season to prove Nordfeldt played no part in the season
    Right so with that out of the way, lets crack on and show you how I did with My attempt
    Transfers
    Here's the full list of My Transfers
    So coming in we had two HUGE signings in the form of Kante and Jesus, here's how the rest lined up with the World Cup
    Group A
    Russia: None
    Saudi Arabia: None
    Egypt: Mohamed Eleny (CM)
    Uruguay: Gaston Ramirez (AM)
    Group B
    Portugal: Adrian Silva (CM)
    Spain: Pedro Obiang (CM)
    Morocco: Khalid Askri (GK)
    Iran: None
    Group C
    France: N'Golo Kante (CM)
    Australia: None
    Peru: None
    Denmark: Pione Sisto (RW)
    Group D
    Argentina: Geronimo Rulli (GK)
    Iceland: None (thought it was Nordfeldt)
    Croatia: Sime Vrsaljko (RB)
    Nigeria: Alex Iwobi (LW)
    Group E
    Brazil: Gabriel Jesus (ST)
    Switzerland: Ricardo Rodriguez (LB)
    Costa Rica: Giancarlo Gonzalez (CD)
    Serbia: Alexsandar Mitrovic (ST)
    Group F
    Germany: Benjamin Henrichs (RB)
    Mexico: None
    Sweden: Robin Quaison (and Nordfeldt) (AM)
    Korea Republic: Joo-Ho Park (LB)
    Group G
    Belgium: Leander Dendocker (CD)
    Panama: None
    Tunisia: None
    England: Michail Antonio (RW)
    Group H
    Poland: Kamil Gilk (CD)
    Senegal: Kalidou Koulibaly (CD)
    Columbia: Jhon Cordoba (ST)
    Japan: Yoshinori Muto (ST)
    So only 23 out of the 32 countries were used, but we did well with the squad we had, the three most impressive players for me were Japans Yoshinori Muto, Englands Michail Antonio and Belgium's Leander Dendoncker all of whom played very very well when called upon.
    Here's my Outgoing Transfers
    So the squads sorted let's have a look at how we did

    We won the league with 5 games remaining, but too many draws early on might hamper my bid to reach the final

    We won four of the remaining 5 games, drawing the other, but a good season all around

    We also won the Italian Cup thanks to an 84th minute penalty, (which jesus missed but tucked in the rebound)

    And the Champions League was also ours thanks again to an 84th minute goal (spooky)
    Here is my final Managers Profile

    So 48 wins gives me 48 Points, so not enough to beat @BatiGoal, but I'm up against @FuddledFox, so hopefully those early draws don't hurt me too much
    Here's the Fixtures
    And Finally here's the Team Stats if anyone wants to see them
     
    So thats it, nothing to do now but wait and hope Foxy has a bad run of form that sees me into the Final
    Cheers for reading and look forward to seeing how @FuddledFox and @samhardy do
