PostSubject: Unemployment Challenge   2010-11-09, 21:54

The aim of this challenge is, instead of taking control of a club/nation like you may normally do so; instead you will begin the game unemployed and your reputation should be set as Sunday league footballer. To become employed, you will need to apply for a job and accept a contract, this is more than likely to be from a non-league/lower league side. You will need to load up leagues from the following countries in Europe: England, Spain, Italy, France and Germany.

The aim is then to work your way up the divisions until you are managing one of the biggest clubs in Europe, those being the teams listed below:

England
Arsenal
Chelsea
Manchester City
Manchester United

France
Lyon
Marseille

Germany
Bayern Munich
Bayer Leverkusen
Wolfsburg

Italy
AC Milan
Inter Milan
Juventus
Roma

Spain
Barcelona
Real Madrid
Sevilla
Valencia

Once manager of one those clubs, you have successfully completed the Unemployment Challenge!

Screenshots of your career will need to be uploaded for proof that the challenge has been completed legitimately and that you haven't taken control over any clubs. Razz

Most is Copy-Pasted from another thread about the challenge, but it's all general stuff.

Is there more rules, like having to load down to BSS/BSN for example.

Can we use the Level 8 Database?

It is advised to load down that low, otherwise you won't be able to get a job, you're allowed to load as far down as you want and as many leagues/countries as you like.

I delayed Windsor for a week and rejected all the others in the hope's that I would get more offers.

But it came down to accepting the offer from Windsor & Eton

I have a small transfer budget and some flexibility with the Salaries so that give me chance to delve into some transfer activity.




Now, lets see what kind of staff we have here.

Well I am plodding along with my game, amongst doing a gazillion other things.

I am unbeaten in the league and just recorded a little bit of a "cupset" against Woking.

Got a draw away from home to earn the replay.




Then brought them back to Stag Meadow for the win after extra time.




My players are knackered after all that and look who finally joined the team, none other than Willy Robert and he bags 4 goals in 2 games.

Manchester United here I come Wink


*Update*

Well, after using Posh's excellent database, I applied for all the managerial vacancies :



I wonder if any of them will accept me affraid

*further update*

Well, out of all the replies I chose Cadbury Athletic, who, amazingly, have offered me a £0 contract on zero years. LOL.

Well my little FA cup run is still going well, knocked out Burgess Hill and then Chesham to advance to the First Round proper, was hoping for a nice payday against a L1 side but got a home game against Cambridge.

Still, there is a good chance that I can get by them and continue the run.

I got 12,500 for beating Chesham, that pays my players wages for 6 months so not too shabby.

After starting the challenge I soon got offered quite a few jobs from the low Norweigan sides and I started my career with Gjovik FF. Their team was made up of youth players around 17 and were all horrible so I moved every player into the B Team and started from scratch.

I had around £6k p/w left of a £7k p/w wage budget and players were available for around £100 p/w so I had room for the players.

Here are my transfers:

22 players in total Smile

Here's the player I'm most looking forward to see playing, although I have a bunch of quality players:

The season hasn't even started yet and I'm being linked to Bradford and Carlisle o_O My past reputation is Sunday League Footballer, so it's wierd.

Edit; Add Morecambe and Bury to the list, I may take one of these jobs if I'm offered them, I'm not sure yet.

Well, after a reasonably decent season, abysmal performance in both cups though, I have quit Cadbury Athletic for Coleshill, who are one league above Cadbury. I reached 2nd with Cadbury, and in my opinion, was the right time to go for the challenge.

PostSubject: CUPSET, CUPSET, Read all about it.   2010-11-24, 03:27

So I am still plodding along with my game, up next was the FA Cup at home to Fulham.

Knowing I had no chance, I started the match at 4-2-3-1 defensive just to try and stop Fulham from scoring, and went to get some dinner, came back at half time and the game was 0-0

Surprised and now excited I made a couple of changes, one sub and switched my R/L mids.
On with the second half, I was losing possession really badly but restricting Fulham to long shots.

Getting down to the final mins and I am parking the bus, going for a draw and the dreams of a big gate at Fulham to fill my coffers.

When out of the blue Daniel Robinson my 22 yr old part timer (with a 5 attribute for long shots) rockets in a screamer past the bewildered Schwarzer.



Holding on in the final few to gain a historic win.

As you can see by the stats I should have been thrashed but that's why we love this funny old game of football.

I'm leaving Skarp. They just don't care about the sport anymore and I don't care for the club either. Wish me luck getting a new job, by the way 7 loses in a row making losing record is too much knowing you're players can do twice more than what they are doing.

I got 68,000 quid for beating Fulham, my monthly wage bill is 2700 so its going to go a long way, now I can see if I can get a couple of better midfielders as my board said I can have a bigger wage/transfer budget.
