Starting with no experience or badges. I'm going to win everything I possibly can in Fm19 while starting unemployed. A True rag to riches story.

Introduction to the Pentagon Challenge


I have been Attempting the Pentagon challenge for the last couple of games now - Never have I had the patience or ability to complete it in its entirety. The closest I came was on FM17 where I had won domestic titles in India, South Korea, South Africa, the USA and Belgium and had successfully won the African cup of nations with South Africa and the Asia equivalent with South Korea.
I still strongly feel this was my most rewarding play through. I had brought my manager up from nothing and now he could speak 7 different languages and had an extremely diverse trophy collection. My favourite aspect was my previous players from India, Korea and South africa would fill my backroom team when I finally got a champions league position at Club Brugge.

For those unaware of what the Pentagon challenge is it is basically when you are given the task of winning every major continental trophy as well as the world cup (which isn't included in every challenge) during a career which you start off as unemployed and without any badges/experience. This often means that you will have to load a lot of leagues in your game in order to keep your options open early game - in my experience it is a lot easier to start in countries like India and Singapore than trying to jump straight in to Europe or South America.

So that is my challenge for my career. Please do regularly check in as I will try to post often with updates on teams, tactics and Training session which will be extremely fun considering the massive overhaul of systems in this year's football manager. It'll be a right blast.

Inexperienced and Unemployed coach,
Rob Dyer
Good luck with the challenge, I knew that I attempted this in FM15 and struggled before heading off to add one more side and do the hexagon challenge.
This'll be good, throughout all my years on FM I've never purposly tried to complete the hexagon/pentagon challenge!
I've tried the pentagon on the last couple of FM's. Very tough. What leagues you got loaded from the start?
