PostSubject: Unemployed Challenge   2010-05-08, 20:38

Here is the challenge, you start with automatic experience and you must start unemployed.

You can load as many countries and leagues as you like, although you must load the following.

England - Blue Square Division Minimum (You cannot start in England though)

Then you must load at least 2 of the following as that's where you will be starting.

Croatia 1st Division Minimum

Romania 2nd Division Minimum

Bulgaria B Division Minimum

Belgium 3rd Division Minimum

Sweden 2nd Division Minimum

Spain - 2nd Division Minimum

Portugal 2nd Division Minimum

German 3rd Division Minimum

Greece B Division Minimum

Belarus 1st Division Minimum

Iceland Premier Division Minimum

All of these have clubs with available jobs at the start of the game so you can get hired right away. If you want to accept one of the higher league jobs in the leagues that are there that's up to you but its more fun to take a lower league club.

You can search the jobs, or you can wait to be approached, I like to apply for them personally.

You cannot start in England but you can apply to any jobs there right after you are hired in one of the other countries although its best to wait a while.



I am using the 10.4 lite patch
You can use the 10.3 patch or the 10.4 one, your choice.

Post your progress and lets see how you do.

No FMRTE or editing allowed in the challenge.

Awards presented for :-

Okay, so i started this challenge in december game date and loaded Belgium, Croatia, England, Iceland, Romania and Sweden. I applied for a lot of jobs and finally Assyriska BK came calling. They are a small team in the Swedish Second Division West Gotaland, 3 promotions away from the top swedish league. Media Prediction 10th out of 13, My Prediction 1st Very Happy

With only 4 games left in my first season in sweden the league couldnt be much tighter



I seem to have the easier of the 4 games playing 8th, 9th, 11th and 12th
and Kinna play 3rd, 4th, 6th and 12th
hopefully i can win promotion Very Happy

PS. my top scorer is 38 year old ex chelsea and welsh international left back - darren barnard lol who is being enquired about by league 2 sides haha He is quite the free kick and penalty expert with stats of 16 for both.

I won 2, drew 1 and lost 1 (without my superstar willy robert for the last two lol)
Kinna won 1, drew 1 and lost 2 in their last 4 games, so i won the leauge by 1 point Very Happy



Not sure what to do now, reject the new contract offer and look for a new job, or accept and try and win promotion again

So I have started with:

Belgium (Down to 3rd Division)
England (Down to Blue Square North/South)
Iceland (Down to 1st Division)
Portugal (Down to 2nd Division)

And I was offered 2 jobs straight away despite only having Sunday Footballer as my past experience. I was offered a place at Belgian Third Division club Bleid though I rejected as I went to...


Team Name: Uniao Sport Club de Paredes
Nation: Portugal
League: Portuguese Second Division North
Year Founded: 1924
Reputation: Local
Chairman Status: Loves the Club
Legends: None
Icons: None
Favoured Personnel: None
Fierce Rivals: None
Other Rivals: Lousada, Freamunde, P Ferreira, Aliados Lordelo
Finances: Okay
Average Ticket Price: £4.30
Average Season Ticket: £17.40
Season Ticket Holders: 200
Estimated Value: £80k
Continental Competition: None
Media Prediction: 9th
My Predicition: 7th

So I am very happy to be offered a job in sunny Portugal and hopefully I can do a good job at my new team as they will probably need some work doing before I feel confident of a promotion, but you never know, this is FM after all Smile
