* Apologies this has been delayed by three days, I've been on and off of the internet with the weather over the last few days but here it is:

Stop 5 – March – The Luck of the Irish


https://i.imgur.com/GIZwCUK.png?1https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/thumb/5/57/St._Patrick%27s_Athletic_F.C._crest.png/200px-St._Patrick%27s_Athletic_F.C._crest.png

March bring us to the special day of green, Guinness and seemingly chasing snakes; St Patrick’s Day and where better to spend the time than in Dublin? Stop number 5 of ‘SUSIE On Tour 2018’ see’s us visit the aptly named St Patrick’s Athletic on the Emerald Isle.

Though the League of Ireland may not play host to today’s big name stars, St Pat’s was once graced by El Tel himself Terry Venables, the great Gordon Banks and even featured the son of the legendary Pat Jennings in nets! Exciting times, I am sure you’ll agree. If that doesn’t get you going, don’t worry, you’ll have the WHOLE SEASON to create some legends of your own.

Predicted to finish 4th in the 36 game season, you also have 3 domestic competitions to compete in, with a fantastic chance to get your hands on some silverware and most importantly, some SUSIE On Tour points!! There’s also a high chance of rivalry bonus points as you will play each team 4 times in the league alone!
https://i.imgur.com/nQg1hBG.png

With a pretty full squad at your disposal and little room to manoeuvre with the wage budget, how will you utilise your transfer windows to get Super Saints firing? Can you identify the best way to get Chris Fagan firing and push towards the European Promised Land?

https://i.imgur.com/6azF6nF.png

The club aren’t in the healthiest of positions financially, which adds a little bit of extra spice to the challenge, with only £600 p/w left in the wage budget you might have to reshuffle the pack a fair bit!

This league is a bit insane. 8 games and a goal difference of 25-7, that is just nuts !

To anyone that has not yet started, this is a great one to get loads of points.

My Saves:


With so many games against rivals, this is definitely going to be high-scoring. In my attempt we were incredible, and yet still not enough to overhaul Dundalk.

I've also just realised I screen capped the wrong page for my initial profile, ao I've taken the screenshot after. If this is a problem feel free to exclude me from the scores and I'll sit in the corner feeling silly.

You say that... but just wait until I give it a go

I've no idea how people have found this so easy, I've only won a single league (and one cup) game so far and just got duffed 3-0 away to Limerick.

That's my boy ... failing together!
That's my boy ... failing together!



Sorry man but since my 3-0 defeat at Limerick, I have now won seven games in all competitions.
That's it for the Irish old man challenge. Very very easy in my opinion, the teams reputation must be much too high compared to the quality of the other players involved.
As you will see from the season preview screen shot my team had every single spot except for wingers, only due to the fact that I didn't play with wingers.

We only lost 2 games all season, one friendly draw and won the rest...

Points:
League winners - 50
FAI cup winners - 25
EA cup winners - 15
Leinster cup winners - 15
Player of the year - 5
top scorer - 5
Rivalries - 50 ( 10 ! x 5 )
Total - 165 points - this is just insane !

@martinfjuul I've no idea man, was surprised myself that I won the award.

@KEZ_7 You're terrible at this game, aren't you? I just kept the style basic, two instructions and no more.
@martinfjuul - I'm a little confused by your screenshots.... It looks like you used print screen and then pasted them into paint...

You do know FM has a default Screenshot hotkey, right?

Right you are. I am running windows on a macbook with a separate mac keyboard.
Is there an easier way to do screenshots with this setup than fn+shift+f11 then paste to paint like I am doing now ?

So how did you manage to sign players who want between 5k-10k per week for only 700 per week? How did you even manage to have them negotiate? Below taken from my save of the players all you've signed and their approximate demands. At around the same time you've signed them I've tried to, with none of them interested:

https://i.imgur.com/GbG8HFs.png

Below screenshots from your save of the contracts they are on:

Clearly the 50% increase on salary may have played a part, but no way would these players sign for such paltry salaries or loyalty fees. Chamakh and Lucio would want a hell of a lot more, as would the agents.

https://i.imgur.com/h7phDGf.png

And you still have over 12k left of your salary budget!

As I said, we are all running on the same save file and these players won't even talk to me. I'd be interested to hear how you've managed it and on anyone else that has tried to sign these players.

Correct me if I am wrong here please.

When I first started the save Stephen Kelly didn't want to talk to me. Once I signed the Welsh players he did. Wage demand was (as far as I remember) nothing close to the 5-10k you mention, I can honestly not remember what they asked for to begin with.
As I understand it, whether players are willing to talk to you or not, depends a lot on the standard/rating of your current squad. This is why some people do multiple 1 month loans to start with in non-league clubs, this raises the strength of the team and in turn makes higher quality players willing to join on long terms deals, I think it is debatable whether this loan strategy is cheating or not. Long story short, the better your current players are the better players you can attract.


As for how I got them to agree to fairly low salaries this should be evident from the screenshots you posted yourself.

I am pretty sure the wage budget is as high as it is because it has been updated for the next season.


Hope that heps.
It's all about the tactic
@KEZ_7 You're terrible at this game, aren't you? I just kept the style basic, two instructions and no more.

I feel like terrible gives me more credit than I deserve, although I do appear to have turned things around!

Hopefully finish up today and get it posted
Here we go then, going to break this into competitions so I can try and keep track of everything!

Hi,
This is my first time trying a 'Susie on Tour' challenge for real, so sorry if my post is not 100% clear/fluid or complete. And sorry for the screenshot in French This should be understandable anyway.
This challenge was an incredible success for me. Below should be the screenshots.

Manager Profile
I did the screenshot at the end of the season (hence the stats) but I believe this is OK.
https://i.imgur.com/sTdisIw.png

League Final Table
An incredible result with winning the title, breaking several records (least number of defeats, highest number of win, high scoring...)
According to the challenge, this rewards me with 50 pts.
https://i.imgur.com/OTEfAtP.png

Various Cups
FAI Irish Daily Mail Senior Cup
I won the cup by having a replay for the semi-final and winning both the replay and the final after ET and goal kicks.
According to the challenge, this rewards me with 25 pts.
https://i.imgur.com/3VfDIW5.png

EA Sports Cup Cup
I won this one quite easily. According to the challenge, this rewards me with 15 pts.
https://i.imgur.com/T6yOEXb.png

Leinster Senior Cup
Again, I won this one quite easily. According to the challenge, this rewards me with 15 pts.
https://i.imgur.com/xqh8mHH.png

Fixtures List
Below are the fixtures. Regarding the rivalries, I've beaten Shamrock 4 times (all in the league) and Bohemians 3 times (one in the league, one in the Irish cup semi-final and one in the EA Sports cup final. So 7 wins against rivals, this rewards me with 7 x 5 = 35 pts.
https://i.imgur.com/0D8zsT2.png
https://i.imgur.com/sAj66ec.png
https://i.imgur.com/2ch10Uc.png

Extras
Given this outstanding season, I've won several awards :
Player of the Year = 5 pts
https://i.imgur.com/SG9mF7m.png
Top Goal Scorer = 5 pts
https://i.imgur.com/DMkJiy8.png

However, I don't understand how I didn't win the manager of the year award finishing only second... behind the Bohemians coach...
https://i.imgur.com/piSTePy.png

Bonus
Best Young Player of the Year
https://i.imgur.com/k6mljQB.png

Best Goalkeeper of the Year
https://i.imgur.com/0wo3GuZ.png

So if I'm not wrong, the total points earned are : 50 + 25 + 15 + 15 + 35 + 5 + 5 = 150 pts

Below is my game saved.

Please can you tell me how do you make the screenshots appear in the post ?...

No worries, welcome to the challenges!
If you upload the screenshots to a site like https://imgur.com and then copy the 'BBCode' link into your text, that should make them appear in your post
