My endeavours with SUSIE On Tour 2019 - trying and likely failing

Manager
Discussion
Well, this thread is pretty much what it says on the tin - tracking my attempts at our SUSIE On Tour Challenges.

Those of you who've followed my stories before (it's been a while) will know that I usually do a lot of work very quickly, lose interest and/or go into some terrible form and then stop posting... and so I figure this is a good way to get back into writing saves up, as each one will have a maximum 1 season limit and will hopefully hold my interest long enough to complete it (I bloody hope so, given I'm one of the staff that helps put them together )

As with last season, I intend to do all of our challenges, although that does depend on how much time work has me spending in hotels! It may serve as a gateway to me writing up an actual career (I do have some ideas in mind) but what it WILL serve as is a bit of a hint for you on our challenges - i.e. what NOT to do!

Wish me luck and enjoy

Challenge 1 - New England - Thanksgiving - 50pts
Challenge 2 – Real Madrid – Woes (Los Blancos Christmas ) - 50pts

Here's my profile as evidence of my coaching history etc and my beautifully terrible 3D face.

Annnnnd start as you mean to go on... Just the 4 days for me to fall out with most of the squad
Preseason has filled me with hope too!!

Good idea. And good luck for the challenges, where I will be too

Fm 2020 - Saves


March, April and May

Our first 3 months have been a bit of a mixed bag, picking up some steady form in April and May. We currently sit just inside of the play-off places and haven't yet picked up any bonuses

https://i.imgur.com/aVacbU9.png

Running Total: 0pts
A few games further along from the above results - we're at the halfway stage and just about in the playoffs - with a strange 3 games in hand on the teams below us. Still in the cup too

June and July

https://i.imgur.com/EzoDyUF.png

Beating RBNY and LA Galaxy gives us 10pts bonus.

https://i.imgur.com/DGCnOtQ.png

US Cup semi-finalist, giving us 10pts, plus a win over DC for a bonus 5pts.

Running Total:
25pts
August

Soooo this month wasn't so great. No points added - though Berbatov (possibly my worst signing in any FM!) did get his first goal after JUST 22 appearances...

https://i.imgur.com/vzopg5R.png

Running Total: 25pts
Berbatov with the awesome goalscoring record! Prolific!

Seem to be doing ok, hard team to get any momentum with I've found!

Yeah, it seems you get a good run, but then fixture congestion kills your squad a little and you hit a dip, like the one I am in at the moment. Also cocked up with the number of internationals I had in the squad, so that hasn't helped me to keep the quality
September

This month also sucked. The form is atrocious and we drop out of the playoff places with 4 games to go!! This type of tragic end of season form appears to be my best trait on FM19

Next Update: Inevitable mental breakdown
I think you've taken the season of what Americans call "Fall" too seriously by replicating it in your league position!

I'm just a draw master in my version of this challenge
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

Ha, I hadn't thought of that but guess you're right!! Hopefully I can turn it around with the last 4 games when I next manage to play. Hope you're doing better than I am

Such a shame isn't it? I got really excited about a cup run, given we actually beat some decent teams on the way. Nevermind!
You're still not very good at this game I see @KEZ_7.

Correct! Though I imagine I am less frustrated, given that I have NEVER been good at it so I don't know what I'm missing
(Most Of) October

Okay so we managed to pull together 7 points from our last 4 games and clinch the last playoff spot on the final day. THANK GOD.

Playoffs + 15pts

https://i.imgur.com/DQabENX.png

Supporters Shield + 5pts

Will post the playoffs when I get through them, though I am expecting to add nothing to that score

Playoffs

Ah, nevermind! Confirmation of our playoff results and my final score:

https://i.imgur.com/UEH8Hgu.png

Score
East - 6th - +15pts
Supporters Shield - 14th - +5pts
US Open Cup - Semi-Finalist - +10pts
MLS Cup Playoffs - Semi-Finalist - +5pts
Rivals - 1x LA, 1x DC, 1x RBNY - +15pts

TOTAL: 50PTS

Very happy with that, given the way things started and fell away towards the end too!

Club World Cup: Winner +10pts

Stop 2 - January and February

Current Total: 10 pts

Transfers

Kind of realised we needed cover at left back and a decent level striker... realised after signing Dzeko that I could have gotten Werner for the same price, but nevermind! Blame my scouts.

Results

https://i.imgur.com/VBMiOJ6.png

Out of the CdR which is a bit embarrassing and takes the 10pts we have away from us. Drawing with Atletico and losing to Barca, means we don't pick up any rival points as yet either.

Running Total:
0pts
Unlucky in the cup against Leganes bud.

If it's any consolation I nearly bottled it against them - I believe I needed spot kicks to get past them after nearly bottling the second leg.

Sucks about Dzeko though.
Cheers @Shedender - it was unlucky but given the number of games we're playing, I am glad to drop at least 1 competition! Injuries are an absolute killer and I wish I'd done more to bolster the squad during January.

Stop 2- March and April
https://i.imgur.com/d3AfMM7.png

Thank god for Bale's free-kicks! He really has been the best player in my save so far, scoring some really important goals and dominating a lot of teams OR rescuing us from the bench as I've tried to rest him as much as i can. His goals against Barca gave us 5pts, but also virtually handed the title to Atletico.

Rival win v Barca - +5pts
Running Total : 5pts

Stop 2 - May and June 1st
