Stop 3 – January – The Heart of Winter


https://botw-pd.s3.amazonaws.com/styles/logo-thumbnail/s3/0012/5147/brand.gif?itok=lR_zlJUx


Happy New Year SUSIE On Tour competitors! Depending on where you are in the world, we're now heading into the depths of winter and so we won't be expecting it to be warm and so this challenge's tedious link comes courtesy of @Suffolk Seasider who tells us: In Finnish, the month of tammikuu means the heart of the winter and because the name literally means "oak moon", it can be inferred that the oak tree is the heart of the grand forest with many valuable trees as opposed to the typical Arctic forests, which are typically pine and spruce. The photograph of a large tree covered with ice against a blue sky is a familiar scene during Finland's winter...

FC Honka is a Finnish club and has a tree on the badge and so that'll do for me! Back to Finland, we go!

The club plays in the top tier of Finnish football and is expected to finish 4th in the Veikkusliga (top tier) this season despite only just being promoted. In a 12 teams league, that probably tells you a little about the perceived talent in the squad and with a very small transfer budget, you might be hard pushed to find much better to work with.

So here they are, your band of merry men who will hopefully lead you to glory! Javi Hervas catches the eye in particular - he once cost Sevilla £1.2m before becoming a bit of a loanee journeyman and falling down the leagues - the deep lying playmaker could be your start man. Gambian international and veteran of the Finnish leagues Demba Savage (what a name!) could also be the top man, out on the right wing.

With only 2 competitions in the league and cup, you have a real chance to fly through this challenge and concentrate on pushing the team into the higher reaches of the table. The Suomen cup is right at the start of your season and offers qualification for the Europa League at the end of it and so it's worth the fight... plus both of your rivals are in Honka's group, so there could be a chance for some early points!

YOU'VE GOT TILL THE END OF THE SEASON TO BAG AS MANY POINTS AS YOU CAN, THIS WILL BE A ONE SEASON SAVE.

i had fun with this challenge as cup games and Europa League qualification games were intense.
as club finances were bad, only two players joined the team (most of my players havent renewed their contracts).

Well, that was disappointing. When I started off, with big wins over my main rivals, I thought "It's only downhill from here" and that couldn't have been more accurate. My form continued into the season, but after the cup win it tailed off and morale never recovered. I went from 3rd to 6th in a matter of weeks and never made back the difference. Complete and utter bottle
League (6th): 10 points
Cup (Winners): 25 points
UEL Qualification (via cup): 15 points
3 wins over HJK: 15 points
4 wins over TPS: 20 Points
Total: 85 points

Cutting it close but it is deadline day... anyway just finished my season which contained a brilliant European run:

Points:
League - runners up - 30pts
cup - winners - 25pts
qualify for Europe - 15pts
rivalries - 4vsTPS and 1vsHJK - 25pts

Total = 95pts
