SIR ALEX FERGUSON CHALLENGE

3 STEPS JOURNEY


 

LANDMARKS


 

STEP 1 – TEAM 1 (MAX 2 Seasons)

1- In Scotland you must start from the lower division (called the Scottish Championship) and be promoted to the senior (Scottish Premiership) within 2 seasons in season 2 you must get promoted by winning the title.

You are free to use any team except those already equipped to go up.


 

2- Then (with this same team) it is necessary to obtain salvation the following year (in the Scottish Premiership). Ferguson achieved this with St. Mirren from 1974 to 1978.


 

STEP 2 – TEAM 2 (MAX 5 Seasons)

1- Stay in Scotland and take the reins of a stronger team and win the Title within 2 seasons, but you can not lead neither Celtic nor Rangers (it would be too easy) nor Aberdeen (Ferguson Managed them). 


 

2- But that's not all. Always with this second team you need to win three cups in a single year (including possibly the Europa League and the UEFA SuperCup). These enterprises must be concluded within the first 5 seasons.


 

3- Optionally, you can stay at this club until you equal the same score as Alex Ferguson: 5 national cups, 3 leagues, and 2 European cups. If you decide to do so, however, everything must be conquered no later than 8 years of management. Ferguson achieved this with Aberdeen from 1978 to 1986.


 

STEP 3 – TEAM 3 (MAX 13 Seasons)

1- You have to go to England and go on holiday until November 6th. 


 

2- Then you have to take the reins of the team that occupies the penultimate position in the Premier League. 

You can use the in-game editor to take charge of the team if needed, since sometimes the team job isn't available or they won't hire you.


 

3- The goal is to win: a national cup within the first 4 seasons, the championship within the first 7 seasons, the double (cup and league) within the first 8 seasons, the treble (league, champions' cup and FA Cup) within the first 13 seasons.


 

4- Optionally, you can decide to stay in this same club until you win exactly: 

2 Champions League

2 Club World Cups

19 National Cups (FA Cup, Charity Shield, Carabao Cup)

13 leagues

2 European Cups (European Super Cup, Europa League). 

But in this case everything must be conquered no later than 25 years of management. Ferguson achieved all this with Manchester Utd from 1986 to 2013.

 

OPTIONAL

 

You can also manage the Scotland National Team, since Ferguson did it and try to do better

  • Qualify for the World Cup (Ferguson did it)
  • Win a World Cup Game (Ferguson was able to do only 1 point due to a draw)

I started the challenge and this is my first team

 

 

I decided to choose Queen's Park because they are a neo-promoted team (i like to make challenges harder)

 

ps: i find later that the team have a SUGAR DADDY but only for the league

 

Here are some data at the start of the challenge and the manager that will try to reach SIR Alex Ferguson

He is from SAN MARINO, Trafalgar Kidd without any badges and the minimal knowledge of football (made it harder since Ferguson played as a Striker)
