Football manager 2013 Run Hop Skip Jump Challenge
Ok guys I hope you all dont mind me creating this second thread but because of the start from scratch and jump ship to the top challenge (Great fun BTW) I had an idea (On night shifts I decided to make being the Boro boss rather interesting) What if Jose/Fergie were doing crap as Boro manager?
well we all know this will never happen simply because making Jose/Fergie manager on editor would be "cheating" so I then thought what if I became in essence just as good as Jose Mourinho then took the Boro job!! so here it is the Run Hop Skip Jump Challenge below explains.
RUN- ok firstly add 4 leagues England/Italy/Spain/Holland were my choices then become manager of the team of your choice I choose Ajax play 1 Season sign only high profile players to add to your worldwide REP amongst players (I won the league and the champions league against Bayern Munich 3-2)
HOP- Right cheating is a no go but to get another High profile job you may have to remove that said teams manager so pick your team and get rid of the boss. once you get the job remove the league you just left and add another of your choosing. I actually got the Inter Milan job (wanted Juventus) ok play another year. (Im only 12 games in but I'm top and Neymar is sitting pretty in my squad plus my reputation is continental now. (see were Im heading)
SKIP- repeat above move leagues or stay but only take serious jobs with euro qualifiers. rack UP as much silverware as you can and sign the best of the best with the big budgets your being given you can sign players bought for your previous big clubs.
Jump- OK OK were getting their now take the final big team job by now you should appeal to any team repeat the above enjoy a year of success and lovely talent. at this stage look to see were boro are and could end up next year and add the respective leagues ..... guess were your heading!
Challenge- Here we are so you will have managed 4 of the best teams in the world and hopefully have many serious honours but you were born in Middlesbrough and you love the smog so your heart drags you back to your beloved Middlesbrough the fans will see your born and bred but they see all the silverware behind you so they will expect.
But what will make this challenge most difficult is that you have just left behind a winning culture and bottomless pockets. from Barcelona/Roma to Leeds/Millwall can YOU and WILL you leave the glam for your first love the sun for the smog and will you make the sleeping giant in Middlesbrough finally wake up for the first time.
Anyone fancy it? [/u][/b]
Once Im at boro Im only going to sign regen players btw
Please Consider Signing
After being ever-present in the top-flight of English Football, Doncaster Rovers Belles FC have been effectively relegated after playing just one match of the Women's Super League season. The reason for this decision is that like all WSL teams, DRBFC were asked to re-apply for membership of the WSL just 19 months after being successfully admitted.
Of the 8 teams currently in the Super League, only one has been excluded from the top flight after the re-application process. Their place will be taken by Manchester City Ladies.
The assessment criteria for admission are:
- Financial and Business Management
- Commercial Sustainability and Marketing
- Players, Support Staff and Youth Development
As the Belles share facilities with Doncaster Rovers (both training and match day) this is not a problem.
The team contains England Internationals and is coached by ex-Doncaster Rovers winger John Buckley. Kids and youth teams are supported so this isn't a problem.
That leaves the financial and business aspects.
I'm sure you guys as sports fans believe sport should be decided on the playing field rather than by committees assessing non-sporting criteria.
This is an occasion where the decision could simply be made by forming a second division and operating promotion/relegation between the two divisions. The FA have decided that a committee can make the decision in a better way. They are not prepared to comment on the decision or discuss it in any way.
If, like me you think this is not correct, please sign this petition.
Good luck next season - we look forward to meeting you again!
David Beckham retires
David 'Becks' Beckham has called time on his career. His league win at PSG has made him the first Englishman to win 4 league titles in 4 different countries!
A true legend and gent! Will be sadly missed from gracing the pitch!
Still remember the famous free kick against Greece! Cheers for the memories Becks!
He has another medal to go with the Champions League medal doesnt he as he was apart of the squad. Not bad for a person who has hardly played!!
UEFA Cup Final Anniversary
Ok, i realise its not the exact date, but I thought since Chelsea play in the Europa league final tonight, we could have a bit of a reminisce. So its now 7 years ago (10th may 2006) when we went to Eindhoven and flocked the city with red and white. Seems like it could have been yesterday. We were 1 down chasing the game till the last 10 minutes when we capitulated through the effort put in, but i think all will agree its a day we'll never forget.
the team that played on the day was schwazer, parnaby, riggott, southgate, quedrue, Morrison, boateng, rochemback, downing, viduka, hasselbaink with cattermole, yakubu and maccarone on as subs
Opening Day fixtures who misses out?
Now that Wigan have joined The Championship it already has caused an effect on the opening day fixtures because due to Wigan playing in The Community Shield (normally the day after the opening day fixtures for all clubs save the PL) it means another team will not be involved.
So for a bit of fun who will be that other club?
In saying that the second game usually comes during the following Tuesday and with the early rounds of the Carling Cup then already a mini fixture pile up is on the cards.
Also will Wigan be exempt from the first round of the CC?
And how early will Wigan want to be knocked out of the Europa League?
To answer my own question and because I know I will hate it will say that it will be Boro who will not be involved opening day
Just playing around on FIFA Ultimate team and decided to make a team of how Boro could look next season (see attachment).
Chris Solly - Charlton - Small Fee
Liam Fontaine - Bristol City - Reduced Fee after City's relegation
Chris Humphrey - Motherwell - Free agent (I think!)
Mehdi Abeid - Newcastle/Dundee United - Free Agent (Again, I think!)
Will Grigg - Walsall - Small Fee
Also add in a couple of youngsters making the odd appearance.
Any improvements on that team? (Bearing in mind that we have a minimal budget)
