Challenge 1 - Last At Christmas (well new years eve)
Welcome to the first challenge for this years game, there will be 10 in total which will take us up to the release of FM21.

You've probably already guessed how this one works, simply take over the club bottom of the Premier League and do as well as you can with them. To make things a bit easier for you I have given them a large cash injection of £350m to the transfer budget, plus a £4.5m wage budget, so you can throw money around as you wish.

You've been quite lucky with the club as it's Southampton, I have removed all injuries and bans, plus called back the majority of the squad who were on loan for you.

Point Scoring

Relegated - 0pts
17th/16th - 5pts

9th/8th - 40pts

Not to be cocky or anything, and it's still early days, but I genuinely can't see anyone bettering me at this one.

I'll give it another shot I think. I enjoyed the first few months enough to have another crack with the monster budget

As long as I can still look like Bobby Robson, I'll be happy!


Sorry only just see this, yeah it's a lot more interesting with the money. Once you're out of January (looking for players) it doesn't take long to get through it either.

Should have mine finished tonight, hopefully avoided relegation fine but really could have done with those extra FA Cup points.

Cheers for sorting your points out for me @SirWerGaming makes things easier and yes Danny Ings is pretty good!

Can't remember how much I spent @Grimnir but was a good chunk of the money including two strikers. Was actually quite nice being able to spend money in the game without a care in the world


I like to make everything straight and clear so you don't waste too much time.

Looking forward to seeing your challenges. I believe the first game is very important to run the challenge well. Winning wolves is a motivating power for players.

Hoping to get started this week on this, hardly had FM20 on as still getting a stuck into a save from FM18 - managing in Iraq (using all Classen's updates so pretty much every league in th world!!)

Good to hear, it shouldn't take too long to complete

Quick question though - is there any limit on what your management level has to be - historically we have always had to have min rating.

Manager should already be set, just load the save and play

Also I prefer to have it set to at least the level of the club as can become very hard if your players have little respect for you and also becomes moredifficult signing players.

Just a basic 4-2-3-1 at the minute, very much plan to tweak it when I'm next playing - gonna need a miracle!


Glad I'm not the only one, then!

Jeesh, fair to say I enjoyed spending the money more than the relegation battle!

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

Thanks to a good run of form from mid-March we managed to stay up though, gaining me a whole 15 points for my 12th place finish! That's it though...

For those interested, here are my transfers in:

https://i.imgur.com/gvsQD3z.png

Barbosa the best signing, don't know how @VP. only spent £20mill on him though! Edouard started well but faded, and Van den Beek was pretty consistently good too.

Worst signing was Bailly, did not play well and kept getting niggles - Vestergaard and Bednarek were better.


And my outgoings make even less interesting reading:

Let me know if any other screenshots or file upload needed

Looking forward to the next one!
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

I should get this finished today - set on 25 points at the minute for an FA Cup 1/4...then lost it 2-0 to bottom of the Championship Charlton (did have an injury crisis though!). 3 games to play, I think and I've only just popped out of the bottom 3 so in true Kez style I have not done very well.

I will argue I've made the most exciting and maybe even romantic deadline-day signing, however
Here we go then:

League Position: 15th - 10 points
https://i.imgur.com/txU8GdK.png


Cup Run: 1/4 Final - 25 points

Fixtures below if anyone is interested, picked up form at the right time for a change in all of my saves!!

Transfers for those interested, very happy with the Ox!!

I'll try get around to firing this up at some point, too into my own one at the moment to come off of it.
Damn, even @Shedender is beating me

Fm 2020 - Saves



You should be more concerned that @KEZ_7 has outscored you.

@Shedender What a spectacular work on the cup!

We ended up avoiding the bigger clubs so I'm glad we reached the final, even if we did need replays to get past both Bradford and West Brom.
I think my mistake was too many transfers! No squad harmony or tactical harmony until the end of the season.
