World Cup: Winners = 50 points
Scalps: Beat Brazil x1 = 5 points
Player of the Tournament = 5 points
Top Goal Scorer = 5 points
Goals (2 points per goal): 21 goals scored = 42 points
Penalty Shootout: 1 win = 5 points

Total points: 112?
Ah yeah, I forgot about Mahrez. The similarities in positions are there too. Winger-come-attacker with the hopes of the nation on their shoulders.

It didn't help that you weren't allowed Salah (or any non home based players) in your ACoN squad. The Egyptian based players are, how should I say it? Crap.

@KEZ_7 and/or @Dan, I have edited my original post in which I've added my Cup of Nations results.
Did we have that same problem with Mahrez?

Yep. He was mince for Algeria under my short and painful regime.
Thankfully I qualified @Shedender... though the defence terrifies me! The squad for the African Championships was woeful too.

On the right or on the left, it didn't help that Mo Salah was pretty dreadful for me - bar one game.

So no World Cup for Egypt and a Quarter Final exit in the Cup of Nations means I've made -50 points from this dreadful challenge.

Just under a week to go folks to complete the latest challenge and so far only FOUR of us have completed it so far.
Nah @bigmattb28, my star rating is currently half a star for each but the game is running no problem - this is with all divisions from Scotland, England, France, Germany and Italy loaded.

Wow. I actually guided 1860 Munich to their second league win of the season in my final game following a 2-0 away success against Saarbrucken.

https://i.imgur.com/tg6k6xv.jpg

We are second bottom though and now it's up to @Dan to ensure we build on that success away to Saarbrucken as we look to escape the dreaded relegation. We are currently four points behind fifth bottom Grobaspach.

Last update I said "this is brutal", well it hasn't gotten any better as we've yet to taste our second victory in the league this season but we did pick up a credible draw against league leaders Gladbach II but lost away to both Rostock and Paderborn in between. Yet again the side progressed in the Bayrischer.

https://i.imgur.com/fDQp1kg.jpg

We remain fourth bottom but with a game in hand. Players are beginning to get pissed off due to the clubs poor league position but yet they're not the ones performing so, yeah. We are seven points adrift and really need to start winning matches before the gap gets larger, and larger and larger.

This has proven to be more difficult then I thought it was going to be although it doesn't help that the defenders can't defend, the strikers can't score and the wingers can't, well, er, wing? It's been brutal stuff so far bar the expected Bayrischer Cup win. We squandered a 3-1 lead away to Wolfsburg II in the first game this month and conceded two late goals to lose to Hertha Berlin II in the final game this month. Brutal.

https://i.imgur.com/WJ0H0Cy.jpg

1860 Munich remain in the relegation zone with just one win to their name.
Transfers have been done for season 22.

You'd still somehow fail pal.
Just completed my summer dealings for what'll be season 21, and I'm still at Rangers.

https://i.imgur.com/xVe77UV.jpg

Received a mental fee for Lukas Janousek which I simply couldn't turn down, especially when he only cost me £1.8m from Hibernian. Got a large enough fee for Rodrigo Orieta from Manchester City so I let him go while both Josh Lelievre and Ettore Unterkircher were both being cunt mugs so I let both youngsters go to Strasbourg and Koln. Nicolas Pelletier went to Roma for £4.5m while five players left on loan deals.

Two games played before the mid-season break and hey, at least you're getting value for money.

https://i.imgur.com/t92zjbA.jpg

And now the gap has been opened to seven points.
Oh shit. It says he's a striker but he's been more used in the centre of midfield.

https://i.imgur.com/C7lBsCE.jpg

It's an absolute mental fee for someone who only cost me £1.8m compensation from Hibernian but I still don't want to sell him though. #conflicted
Got to admit, ahead of a Scottish Cup QF replay AGAINST CELTIC, this is a tad ridiculous.

https://i.imgur.com/Kni8kwV.jpg

And no, it didn't give me the option to postpone the game or I would've took it. Needless to say, we lost 2-0.

https://i.imgur.com/K3WjW2T.jpg

Things started poorly with just two wins from our opening seven league games and a poor dressing room due to players bitching and moaning left right and centre but when's it's all set and done and even though I got ZERO points I'm quite satisfied with an eighth placed finish, but I did pick up five points due to our victory against CEC (Cruzerio) but the side also did pick up some disappointing draws which didn't help us at least securing a top 7 finish - c'est le vie though.

Bah, runners-up which I'm a little disappointed with.

Copa Libertadores:

Eh, I should just be happy we reached the semi final stage especially considering how I also bottled the second leg against Colo Colo ffs.

Total Points:
First Division: 8th = 0 points
South-Minas-Rio: Runners-up = 10 points
Copa Libertadores: Semi Finals = 15 points

Rivalries:
Beat Cruzerio (CEC): x1 = 5 points

Total Points: 30 points
Won the league for a second consecutive season and eleventh overall since taking charge nineteen seasons ago while the BetFred Cup was won as Hamilton were beaten 4-1 in the final but it was disappointment in both the Scottish Cup and the Champions League - Celtic dumped us out of the Scottish Cup at the semi final stage while it was a quarter final exit in the Champions League as Chelsea eliminated us with ease.

This summer I decided that I need to bring in some younger players so first and foremost I decided about selling a few players and four players departed for money - Manuel Quintilla (Sunderland, £25m), Niall Dixon (West Ham United, £40m), Nathanael Granier (Arsenal, £40m), Ibrahima Lago (Atalanta, £3m) and Lutz Esser (Atalanta, £2.5m) while four players left the club on loan deals while Henrik Thomsen (AGF, £3m), Ibrahim Mensah (Atalanta, £7.75m), Randel Babel (Atalanta, £9m), Ettore Unterkircher (Mainz, £5.5m) and Pierre Robert (Bordeaux, £2m) joined the club this summer and I'm sure I'll make sure they all get at least some game time.

It's going to be a TWENTIETH season at Rangers Football Club and I'm hoping it'll be another successful one and we still play our home fixtures at Ibrox.
It's taken 18 seasons but I've finally done an unbeaten league season with Rangers. The side also reached the semi finals of the Champions League but lost 6-2 on aggregate to French side Monaco but we did secure the BetFred Cup once again but Motherwell dumped us out of the Scottish Cup in the fifth round which was shockingly bad.

Three played have already agreed to join the club next season, all on frees as Nicolas Pelletier (PSG), Russell Robertson (West Ham) and Andy Hart (Arsenal) have all agreed pre-contracts and I'm expecting at least one more to join on a free but that also means players will need to leave the club as I only want a 25 man first team squad and no more - Bojan Rog, Lutz Esser, Josh Williams and Viktor Karlberg could be the ones who are leaving Ibrox in the summer, Elias too if he doesn't agree to a new deal.
I don't know what's happened @DNZY but the recent form hasn't been pretty, we're so going to bottle the title.

Retained the Bayerischer Pokal after a one nil win away to Bayreuth but holy fucking shit, the league form in the past two months has been nothing short of atrocious in which we have won one league game in the past two months and whenever you're OUTPLAYED at home on the final day to the team who finished bloody second bottom then you know you've problems.

https://i.imgur.com/08OF26Z.jpg

Bayern II won the league but who cares, we BOTTLED retaining the title. So it's another season in the fourth (I believe? tier of German football ffs.

It's now up to @Dan to make signings and start next season.

It's proven to be a tough April as our 1860 side only recorded one single league victory, a 2-1 success away from home against Seligenporten and the same month began with a shocking and unexplainable 5-0 defeat away to FC Bayern II but we did advance in the Bayerischer after a single goal home win over Elchstatt and our reward is a home semi final against Illertissen.

The month began with a disappointing single goal home defeat to Illertissen but we bounced back with three wins and a draw in the next four Regionnal Div. Bavaria games while our defence of the Bayerischer Pokal continued as we progressed with a one nil home win over Garching - Elchstatt await at home in the quarter final stage.

And we remain top of the table and nine points clear.

Now spend the money wisely @Shedender

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

Don't think I've done too badly in the transfer market, Fabricio Dolci is the replacement for Adam Shinnie so there's no pressure on his young shoulders. Camilo Navarrete could prove to be an absolute steal from San Lorenzo as I activated his £4.3m release clause and he's only twenty years old, Manuel Quintilla will rotate with our other AMC while Airam Perez and Lutz Esser (currently out for five months) will be squad/rotational options. Still only got £282m to spend.
Does anyone notice a notable player on the out list?

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

Yep I had to let him go and the only thing I'm delighted with was that I got £63m for a player who only had one year left on his contract. He'll be missed.
The strangle hold on the SPFL title is over. We completely collapsed in the second period against Celtic to hand them the crown.

https://i.imgur.com/DipI7fq.jpg
Our facilities are the best they can be and each time they're downgraded we get them back to the top, however very rarely have anyone decent enough come through the youth ranks. And Normally I'd head down that route with development, but when you're on a network save againt your brother its harder to do it that way.

That's the issue I have as well, both my youth and training facilities are "state of the art" but yet during my seventeen seasons only Barry Geggan and Peter Chisholm have come through to become first team regulars at the club. I've got another good left winger in the U20's currently out on loan at Hibernian but he's already 23 years old so I may need to try him in the first team next season and probably sell Hernandez. I'd love a top class (potential at least) striker coming through if I'm being "forced" to sell Shinnie.
