    Challenge 14 - Three Lions

    After the expected England's failure on the World Cup, here's your chance to remedy things...At least in virtual world...


    Rules

    -you are in charge of England for 3 WC qualifications AND 3 EC qualifications (and the tournaments themselves if you qualify)
    - you are allowed to call up only the players playing in English First Division (Championship) and below
    -if a player you had called up gets transferred to the EPL or any other league in the world, you have to remove him from your squad
    - as soon as the team is no longer physically located in the Championship you have to stop using their players, i.e. if a player's team is still in Championship before the game updates in June, you're allowed to use him
    - you have to use YOUR OWN 442 flat tactic, to prove the WC can be won using this formation
    -use the SIM Data Update or ODB June 2010 Data Update


    Points

    World Cup / European Championship

    Title - 100/90
    Runners-up - 80/70
    Semifinals - 60/50
    Quarterfinals - 40/30
    2nd round - 20/ -

    Bonus points - every goal scored on a tournament is worth 1 point


    This is not that hard of a challenge, but it could be fun...It's not that long either since it's international management and seasons will fly by...Enjoy

    Your challenge master,
    Churky

    I started this one too....

    Hey AMC (or Churky)... does the first WC count? I don't know if it should as the rules state 3 WC qualifications and the WC if you qualify for it... but Engerland is already in the first WC held the first summer and you haven't needed to qualify..... I'd be inclined to not count it as 1 of the 3.... thoughts?

    I think you're right mate, I'm sure it said it starts after the 2002 WC, must have been on the old site.

    Excellent... I'll use the first one as a practice run to test players and formations

    Just finished this

    Very frustrating looking through squads to make sure player is not in Prem

    Anyhoo - good 'ol tactic restriction made for some dour games!

    Only managed to get 3 championships before I was sacked

    FA confidence was always low with me. I was very much like current England team where I flew through all qualifying groups but bottled it at the championships!

    2012 Euro Champ - 5 goals and quarters - 35 points
    2014 World Cup - 4 goas and quarters - 44
    2016 Euro Champs - 5 goals and didn't get past group stage - 5 points

    Total - 84 points

    What about free players and loan players?
    I have to be sure that all my players are ok before each game or before each season?

    I'd say yes to free players, but loan players who's parent club is in the Premiership no.

    Ok. And players have to be allowed only before each international game or before each season?

  11. #9
    Before each game I think mate.

    Catastrophic... I missed the qualification for European championship...And I think I won't qualify for WC... I used the 4-4-2 flat of The Barber of Sevilla (not so bad...62pts with the Degraafschap test versus 59.4pts for my 4-1-3-2 default tactic). Best players doesn't stay in their D1 clubs... Help?!

    Nothing for qualification mate. As you can see from Red's attempt above he seemed to have trouble with it too.

    Not a tactic problem, I choose the best players I can...I have to be luckyer and qualify for a few points...because I can't go further than 1/4 I think...
    If They sack me, it means that I will score...0!!!

    Sacked...after 2 bad qualification phases... 0pt for this challenge. I don't think I could do better with a tactic like that...Perhaps I will do it again but with a better tactic. My way to play the challenges is clear, default tactic each time I can. Its good to realize that you can't win without good players!!!
