Prove Your Talent
How Far Can You Take Your Talent
Basically I have holidayed the game to January 1st of the first season in FM 08. I have uploaded the following leagues:
- English Premier League & Championship
- Ligue 1
- La Liga
- Serie A
- Bwin Liga
- Turkcell Telekom
- Greek Superleague
The challenges will all be of similar difficulty just so you can have a challenge, there will be no points system whatsoever and is just purely for your enjoyment and if you fancy an interesting game. I have seen a few people around Neo recently saying they are getting bored so here are your challenges:
Challenge 1 - Give Reading Champions League Football
Reading are having a superb season and lie 3rd in the table but have no realistic chance of catching United and Chelsea. Arsenal and Liverpool are just a breathe away from stealing your Champions League place and with 18 games to go, you must give the Reading fans a once in a life time dream. The transfer window has just opened so bring some talent to the Madejski. They have already signed strikers Tekke and Szabolcs Huszti.
Challenge 2 - Bristol City To The Premiership And Gain Silverware
Maybe real life does happen in FM, Bristol City are 3rd and in a real chase for the four play-off spots with Charlton and Wolves running away with the automatic spots. Automatic promotion would be superb but winning the play-offs is your main aim. As a bonus, Bristol are in the Carling Cup semi-s and face Premier League side Bolton, with Southampton or Derby awaiting in the Final. Take Bristol to the Premiership and Carling Cup glory.
Challenge 3 - Hertha Berlin's Return To Glory
Hertha Berlin are the fallen giants of German football, and have fallen from glory in recent years. Half way through the season they are five points clear at the top with Stuttgart, Dortmund, Hamburg and Munich all chasing them down. Take the reins and keep the players from the pressure and guide the German capital side to Bundesliga glory.
Challenge 4- Keep Pride In Panathinaikos
Panathinaikos are struggling this season, 6th in the league and 11 points behind bitter rivals Olympiakos. If you can bring the green machines back and win the Superleague then the fans will worship you for ever more. As a bonus guide Panathinaikos to the UEFA Cup Final in Manchester.
Challenge 5 - Palermo Breaking Up The Party
Palermo are having a great season in Serie A, 2nd in the league behind AC Milan will Juventus, Lazio, Inter and Roma all close behind. Guide Palermo to Serie A glory and make the big teams sit up and take notice. They have a lot of money after the sales of Barzagli, Zaccardo and Amauri and Toto Tamuz is banging the goals in upfront. As a bonus take Palermo to the UEFA Cup Final in Manchester.
Challenge 6 - The Best Treble
Usually the SPL is a close run thing between Celtic & Rangers, but only in January and Celtic are 14 points clear. If you can bring Rangers back and win the SPL you will be a god amongst the Gers fans. Rangers also face Celtic in the CIS Cup Semi-Final so take the Gers to cup glory in the CIS and the Tennents Cup.
Challenge 7 - Returning To Former Glory
Deportivo have struggled financially in recent years and have never challenged like they used to. But this year they lay 2nd in La Liga just behind Real Madrid and just infront of Barcelona. Win the title with La Caruna and return them to their former glory.
Challenge 8 - Struggle In Valencia
Valencia are 17th in La Liga, and on the verge of the relegation places. But they are only 10 points off a UEFA Cup place. The star players need to turn their talents on and you need to guide them away from relegation and into Europe. As a bonus, guide Los Ches to the Champions League Final in Moscow, and if you can, complete the double by winning the Copa Del Rey.
Challenge 9 - Problems In Turkey
Galatasaray are struggling and lay 6th in the league, but are just 8 points off the top, the fans have a reputation so don't dissappoint them and take the Turks to the Turkish Cup aswell.
Challenge 10 - Portuguese Dominance
Porto have dominated the Bwin Liga for so long but this season, Benfica are two points clear. But Porto are on a winning streak, take charge of Benfica and hold off Porto to the change the course of dominance in Portugal. Making it a treble with the two domestic cups would satisfy the fans further
