FM2018 may only be 6 weeks old, but we’ve already made it to the best part of the year… no, not the Transfer Window opening, CHRISTMAS!. To celebrate the season, Stop number 2 of ‘SUSIE On Tour 2018’ see’s us visit the home of Jari Litmanen, an extortionate amount of racing drivers and of course, Lapland.

https://i.imgur.com/0yQFFW5.png?1]https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/e/e1/FC_Santa_Claus.pnghttps://i.imgur.com/doxqt5C.png?11

This little club in the Arctic circle sit in the fourth tier ‘Kolmonen’ or ‘III divisioona’ of Finnish football and boast a massive picture of the big man himself on their badge. This challenge may not be for the feint hearted as the level is so low we need an expansion which we've managed to find and play the save with. This will be another one season only save, meaning you have just the one chance at promotion and with only one spot available to go up it'll be tough. An amateur club who are set to play only league football this season.

Your challenge, is to take over this little club for the short season ahead and try to leave Santa as happy as possible!

https://i.imgur.com/2SRx1GU.png

A fairly large squad but that isn't an issue when you're an amateur club. Everyone is without a contract meaning it is easy to ship players out straight away, for example do you need four goalkeepers in the squad? Get into the transfer market and find those free agents who will take Santa Claus towards the top of the pile this year and leave the fat man in red with a smile on his face.

https://i.imgur.com/TCC9YF2.png

Financially the club is okay, a small £5k in the bank balance and apparently on an £83k profit for the year somehow. However there is no transfer budget made available and the same with the wages. This club is still an amateur club meaning players can come and go as they please, there are no contracts which could see us turn into a signing friendly in the month before the season starts.

Nice! Can't wait to get started
They have, on paper, a strong squad and can easily win the league. . .

. . . then you have the downside. They're amateur and all the quality will probably get 'poached' by other clubs.

But still, can't wait to get this started & ultimately fail.
Looking forward to getting stuck in to this one.
Doin it.

So 5 games in, 5 wins. Suspiciously easy so far. I imagine the vultures will come circling if they play too well.

Quick question, are their rivals RiPS? Just in case there's confusion with what's in the scoring description
Sure, count me in.

RoPS aren't there "fierce rivals" but come under other rivals. They play in the top flight though so unlikely you'll actually face them.

Sounds ummm fun.

For some reason the badge is wrong in mine, have downloaded the save and loaded this. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

To have the badge you'll need to download one of our badge (logo) packs mate.

I'm in. As a purely anal and ocd thing I don't suppose anybody has or could make the home and away kit?

Nice quick challenge. We didn't get to play RoPS.

Won the league on the last game of the season so just the 50 points for me.

Good job man. How did you get on top scorer-wise? I'm halfway through the season and there's already a player with 28 in 18 playing for FC KOMU
Okay, I'll give this a shot. I''ve never played as an amature team before, so this could be interesting...

I'm in for round 2, positive points would be nice this time around!

@Ice Man - Can't believe you've completed this already and won the league! Nothing like setting the bar high! Good job!

None of my players made it into the top 15-20 I think. I will have a look later on to confirm. It was the one position that I really struggled to get any players for.
Here are the top scorers from my game. @Joe Boy

We won the league, but didn't play our rivals or win any awards (we did have 5 players in team of the year though). 50 points.

I don't get why the league randomly picks teams to finish 2nd or 3rd if they're on the same number of points, without looking at goal difference or head to head.

I thought this was an easier challenge than Sunderland; despite the amateur status I didn't lose many players or staff. I only made a couple of signing for midfield and defence, and releasing one of my keepers early on.

The one and only season at Santa Claus has been concluded and it didn't completely go to plan.

https://i.imgur.com/nP3Tj6q.jpg
https://i.imgur.com/c9kNk7H.jpg

https://i.imgur.com/eZTl3sh.jpg

So I could only manage a 5th place finish with Santa Claus this season so that'll be 10 points, too many draws ultimately cost us finishing higher up the table.

https://i.imgur.com/PAMiRaP.jpg

But I did manage to get another 5 points because Viljami Kerola finished as the top goalscorer after bagging thirty seven times. We would've been screwed if he got injured throughout the campaign.

Total Points:
Kolmonen Group E: 5th place = 10 points
Top goalscorer: Viljami Kerola = 5 points

= 15 points. It could've and should've been so much higher, damn inconsistency.
I had to use Kerola in my first 5 games due to an injury to the other striker who was far better in pre season, Kerola never even looked like scoring! Kudos to you for getting 37 goals out of him!

And he probably could've scored more than he did. I've never had a striker be so prolific for me in quite a while. Hope more give Kerola game time.
Did I mention that I hate this game?

1 disgusting loss cost us the league. So that leaves just 25 points for me for the 2nd place finish.

Well that was very jolly. Jolly frustrating! Came agonisingly close to going doing an unbeaten season (I'm sure it's not actually possible in FM, please prove me wrong )

https://i.imgur.com/XdgsLMZ.png?1

Still managed a 33 match unbeaten run including a 15 match winning streak so I guess I'll just have to be satisfied with that.

Although apparently having already won the league my 'hopes' were over???

https://i.imgur.com/T22fnCI.png?1

Signing of the season was Sami Hyvärinen. The right back proved to be a prolific penalty taker and was my only player in the team of the year. No player was anywhere near top scorer and manager of the year went to some guy who didn't even win the league so 50pts.

This 50 points. Fun fact my stiker scored 40 goals, but this is only enough third place, the winner scored 50!
Ho Ho Ho. Here's my finished season. I've got to be honest, I thought it was easy with all the wins rolling in. I look at 2nd and 3rd, and man alive, they're on my arse. I dropped to second leading into the last 3 games, but luck was on my side and i topped the table on the last day of the season, equal points on 89. Look how close it is! Top scorer was miles off, how did he get 43 goals?? Didn't even make top 3 for manager or player either (that's odd)

Anywho, 50pts by my count.

I posted links to my screenshots and my save file earlier in this thread, but for some reason I didn't get added to the leaderboard?
Fastest season ever (helps when almost all games are played with commentary only).
Too easy to win this one if you ask me, but super cool with the christmas theme.

It looks like I'm going to be the only one who finished lower than second place ffs.
