Wow, this is crazy. Every good player the club our are on loan (Borini etc) the rest of the first team are on enormous wages and now the board have just cut my wage budget leaving me -£153k. Can't even get a loan in...beat Barnsley 2-0 though.

On the hunt for a senior affiliate, try and get some players in on free. There's literally no point in selling, I'll never get the finance back in the black.

Beat QPR 4-1! Everton in the next round

Well, I didn't get fired!

A quick mid-save update. All's going well with the team up to 13th. Got Man City as a senior affiliate so managed to get a couple of free loans to beef up the squad.

As you can see, my time with Sunderland didn't go very well, only picking up 8 league wins which doomed us to a 15th placed finish. I did however, reach the FA Cup 5th round where I lost to Manchester United, after going toe to toe with them for 60 minutes.

Looking forward to stop 2
Ended my save.

Only managed a 14th spot and lost in the 4th round of the fa cup. Atleast I didn't get sacked.

All done.

If I've worked this out right, 25 points?

An 11th place finish, which is in reality is disappointing. I had the team in a play off position, but suddenly hit a massive bit of inconsistent form, completely unable to string wins together.

I brought in Alexander Isak on a free loan. Got me 5 goals in 16 apps. Nwakali from City was not much help.

lol, ofc not Just went through the fixtures list like it was a full season My bad. Total points fixed.
Well that was hard work by the end. As soon as I lost one game it felt as if I had lost the squad but somehow managed to survive and not get sacked.

Finished 5th position which I'm very happy with because I really never felt comfortable between all the injuries, players moaning, no transfers, etc...
Unfortunately couldn't beat Norwich in the play-offs. Made it to the 1/4 of the FA Cup thanks to a pretty good draw. Also have the top scorer (tied, so I don't know if it counts as 5 points?). And I managed to beat Middlesbrough once (and freaking leeds tied the game at the last minute argh!)

Play offs loser = 20pts
1/4 FA cup = 15 pts
Middlesbrough = 5 pts
Top scorer = 5 pts

45pts total if I'm not mistaken, really happy with it since it's my first challenge and seems like a lot of people had trouble with it! I'm used to managing AJ Auxerre in my saves and was able to play in the almost exact same way I play with them so I think it helped me

Anyway, thanks for the challenge, when I saw this thread, it made me buy the game because I was still in my save on FM16 and thought it'd be a good opportunity to try something new! Very excited for challenges to come!

Lets give this a bash!
@Odeon63 actually there was a slight problem where I forgot to put it on a fortnightly auto-save, so I will have to redo the challenge this weekend. Hopefully I get a similar score!
I will be writing up each step of the tour follow my story here...

Here is my manager for this challenge

Hello!

First of all sorry my bad English. I finished the task 1. Good start, but after Leeds defeat the moral collapse, and everybody hates me, and no more good results.

Here is the pics (Manager screen posted before)

League - 13 - 20th: 5pts
FA Cup Fifth Round Exit: 10pts

I enjoy and waiting the next round.

Yup!
Sometimes you have to stand in the shadows; to see the light.

I guess I am going to take this on, too! My first challenge ever. I completely su** at the game and usually only play FMT (if ever) but what the hell

So is the use of the license fix prohibited, too? What about graphics (players, kits, stadiums)?

Hope I'll make it on time until end of Nov.

You'll have a way to go to beat my -30!

Yes you can use the licensing fix and custom graphics like kits, faces, stadiums.

Good luck!

Btw, How can I put a screenshot here? Thanks
