Stop 1 – November – Thanksgiving


https://seeklogo.com/images/N/New_England_Revolution-logo-95A7957F5D-seeklogo.com.png


The month of November is all about giving thanks in the USA and ‘SUSIE On Tour 2019’ is all about testing you outside of your comfort zone, so what better way to start than by heading to the crazy world of rules and regulations that is MLS.

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

Your challenge is to take over at New England Revolution, home to such soccer luminaries as erm... Wiflried Zahibo(?) and erm.. Michael Mancienne(?) who play at the home of the New England Patriots (you can see how tedious this link is already) in Massachusetts, where it is believed that the first Thanksgiving holiday took place in the States. Revolution are regularly in and around the lower-midtable of the final MLS rankings each year, with Brad Friedel leading them to 8th in the Eastern Conference this season and 16th overall in the Supporters Shields ranking... your quest is to beat it!!

Taking over at the start of the season, with a low expectations and a giant of a stadium, how will you fare? You have the 1 FULL SEASON for this challenge.


https://i.imgur.com/6Yjtj2Q.png

With a smattering of internationals in your squad, it isn't all that recognisable aside from the aforementioned Michael Mancienne, once of Chelsea and Hamburg before heading to the US via a spell at Forest. Can you make some last minute deals to give this side the lift they need to succeed?

Not Overly familiar with playing in the MLS, so was a bit cautious in terms of signing etc.
But as a whole I was happy with the outcome, despite throwing away a 2nd place finish in both the Conference & Shield with a bad run of form at the end of the season

Points
15 for 3rd in the Eastern Conference
10 for 5th in the Shield
0 for Crashing out of the Play-offs
0 for Going out in the 5th Round of the Cup
0 for Matches against NY Red Bull
10 for Matches against Chicago
5 for Match against LA Galaxy
10 for Matches against DC United
0 for Not getting any awards and not being Sacked

Total of 50
Total points: 5 (beat that!)
Gained points for: USOC semi-final, one win over rivals DC United and NY Red Bulls.
Lost points for: Conference position and supporters' shield position

(Misc) Transfers. Alan Gordon scored on his debut, thought he'd be an inspired signing - wasn't.

Thoughts: Frustrating due to form, but overall fun to do - it's the taking part that counts

Hey guys im new to these challenges. Are we allowed to still do manual saves? or do we have to wait until the game auto saves?

Good destination choice for the 1st leg - a real interesting team for me since I have managed The Revs before in FM15 and recognise a few familiar faces! Hopefully I'll stick around to do more legs of the journey this year.

A surprisingly good start on my first FM19 save of the season. A shame really because I like the game improvements but will still be using 18 until I can continue my main save challenge on 19.
An incredible start was what really mattered, as after that we were really no better than most of the other sides in the league, but we always had a cushion. A shame we had to play Atlanta in the Conference Final, but they were a class apart and beat us 4 times!

A couple of additional bits of information before my score - starting off with the fact I was chosen to manage the MLS All-Stars against Leicester City which was pretty novel!
https://i.imgur.com/2h6DDju.pnghttps://i.imgur.com/pVX8sjR.png

Juan Agudelo twice got close to winning us additional awards - but was pipped to the post on both occasions.
https://i.imgur.com/xgMRXts.png
https://i.imgur.com/nm2la74.png

We did place first and second in another award though, with both fullbacks having incredible seasons, Farrell in particular. (Surely this deserves an extra 5 points? )
https://i.imgur.com/nr65bl2.png

So in terms of points:

Eastern Conference - Winners - 30 Pts
Supporters Shield - Winners - 25 Pts
MLS Playoffs - Conference Runners-Up - 10 Pts (Or should this be 5?)
US Open Cup - Round of 16 - 0 Pts
Rivals - 25 Pts (0 Pts for NYRB, 5 Pts for Chicago, 0 Pts for LA Galaxy, 20 Pts for DC United)
Manager of the Year - 5 Pts (and surely a bonus 5 for Defender of the Year to take me up to 100?)
Total = 95 Points - I'll take that and run!

I'd like to try the challenges this year, but I*m not able to disable the in-game editor for whatever reason. I've uninstalled it in steam, but it's still showing up in-game?
