Yeah I'd be happy not to return as well, was a hard stint in fairness and the transfer rules really weren't great.

http://i.imgur.com/INWobdC.png

Originally bought in a couple replacements with Shane Carr joining on a free, not great but felt I needed another centre back Australian as well. Then grabbed Hrustic on loan. In January I went and got Souza on loan and that messed up my wage allocation seeing me having to let a load of players go due to wage caps and I had to call up a load of youth players and we had to cope with them for the rest of the season.

http://i.imgur.com/gHhp8Gv.png

We never really hit any decent, constant league form and always seemed to slip to long losing runs lasting two or three games and this would deter us for bidding to finish the regular season as top spot. However we did beat our fierce rivals Melbourne Victory all three times, bagging 15 points for those.

http://i.imgur.com/q6qUOQl.png

Despite all three victories over our fierce rivals Melbourne Victory this year, it'd be them who finish top of the pile as they ran riot and won it by fifteen points. We took second place by a point over Brisbane Roar and it'd be them who we face in the Semi Finals. Elsewhere Adelaide United, Western Sydney Wanderes and Perth Glory all make it to the Series Grand Final. 15 points for finishing second place.

http://i.imgur.com/DnLPx3y.png

Whilst we didn't win the Regular Season, we would go on to be crowned the Champions of the Series Grand Final. We comfortably won our way to the trophy over the two games, beating Brisbane Roar four two in the Semi Final and then dispatching Adelaide United, who beat Melbourne Victory in the Semi Finals. We beat Adelaide three one at home in the Final and that gave us another 20 points.

http://i.imgur.com/DN4G96H.png

I really thought we'd go on and be champions of the FFA Cup this year following our strong run through the earlier stages. We beat Brisbane Roar four two in the Quartyer Finals, that was the first team we really faced who should of coursed us any problems however we claimed a four two win. Rewarded with a Semi Final clash against non league side Green Gully who we beat two nil. Adelaide United awaited us in the Final and we narrowly lost two one to them. 20 points for runners up.

Good season there @Dan ! Is that just 15 points off the maximum for this leg?
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

Thanks @Suffolk Seasider I think the maximum would be 100 points if you faced Melbourne in the FFA Cup and the Grand finals then you could pick up 25 points from them?

Well played mate, really good point outcome there, I'll be lucky to take half of that.
Very good stint there @Viktor Bragi Brynjarsson well done on getting it done so quickly.


Thank you Did not spend to much time thinking about transfers ,all those rules made my crazy, or anything in this save. Was just trying to finish this as quickly as possible.
THANK GOD THAT'S OVER!!!

Sad thing is, 6 out of 8 wins at the end of the season, just a bit late in the day.

League position 4th - 10 Points

http://i.imgur.com/4PMVfl5.jpg

Very luck with the FFA draw - eventual winners - 25 Points

http://i.imgur.com/ZGG84k1.jpg

Semi final defeat in the finals series - 10 Points

Nowhere near player of manager of the year and lost to Victory twice and drew once.

Really frustrating save, dominated most matches just couldn't seem to guide my team towards any consistency until the end.

Total points - 45
Think this is a stop on the tour that has tested and troubled a lot of people because of the transfer and squad restrictions. However that is why we play the tour series, its a challenge in these countries. I'm surprised mine didn't backfire when I had to call up youths due to the City loanee eating my wage budget.

But hey, not long till the next stop, I'll try make it more friendly don't panic.

It was something that most of us have never tried. But that is what it's all about, try something different.

I love what you are doing here and finally I had fun playing FM17 after many one seasoned saves because I couldn't find the drive to play the game.
I agree, was a challenge but that's a good thing, looking forward to the next challenge.
No @Dan, this seems to be a stop that's only tested me since I'm the only one (thus far) to get sacked.

Made sure not to be a clown and miss the deadline by getting this challenge completed nice and early! Enjoyed playing in a league that I had never even considered looking at before.
Kept things nice and simple assuming that a media prediction of 1st was a sign that I didnt need to reinvent the wheel only adding Mark Bresciano to the squad for depth. Managed to have a highly successful season;

A League- 1st - 20pts
Series Final- Winner- 20pts
FFA Cup- Winner- 25pts
Player of Year Winner -5pts
Rivalry x 3- 15 pts

Total- 85pts

Incredible to think that had you of posted your second leg scores in time you would of won two out of three rounds now and second in the German tour! and miles clear of anyone else. Unreal!

Blah, did not enjoy this really. You took transfer fun from me, and there was a need for an overload of friendlies. Fell out of with my midfield, who should have been much better than they were. Just, blah. Least I didn't get sacked but the way my team played come the end of the season I arguably should have.

http://i.imgur.com/2jHqzSs.png

Always going to have some transfer activity, no matter how awkward!

http://i.imgur.com/vEkf1od.png

Semis for the cup, not too disheartening I guess.

http://i.imgur.com/jHIrIT9.png

Went to shit at the end of the season...

http://i.imgur.com/Onp69VY.png

...arguably cost me second place. And third.

Continued the crazy games against Perth. Battan got sent off though and we lost because of it.

http://i.imgur.com/Uf9ys9L.png

Loved this guy though. So did the rest of the league.

Points Summary:
Regular League: 4th - 10 points
Final League: Eliminated - 0 points
FFA Cup: Semis - 15 points
Rivalries: 1 win - 5 points
Bonus: POTY - 5 points

Total: 35 points

Looking back, I'd have done things differently. Difficult when in a strange league and unfamiliar rules to get it right straight away I feel.

Ah well, here's to the next leg!
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

Once I got the tedious friendlies out of the way, it did seem to go pretty quick!

if i have calculated it properly it is 90 points
How were you able to buy from Brisbane Roar? My game said transfers between teams in your division wasn't allowed.

Dunno it let me buy from everyone in the league if i wanted to
@Ryan Mcavoy is this the first challenge you've participated in?
No on the bristish steel challenge aswell

Meant on the tour! HHa
How were you able to buy from Brisbane Roar? My game said transfers between teams in your division wasn't allowed.
This^ my game also wouldn't allow transfers from clubs in the same league, it's part of the transfer regulataions to my knowledge.

@Dan can you clarify mate or am I being thick?
Weirder still, the guy he bought from Brisbane Roar he released the same day? Not uncommon for players bought to be moved on within a month?! What the hell?
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

Couldnt register some players because of wage bill and resulted in releasing then automatically
I think the rule is that players can be EXCHANGED within the league (i.e. a straight swap player for player) but not as a straight transfer involving cash. Not 100% sure what's gone on there but sure @Ryan Mcavoy could let us know how he got around it as I could certainly use it!!

I've about 12 league games in at the moment, so likely get my results posted up midweek, maybe sooner

EDIT - Nevermind just seen the previous post!
