The Story so far
After the relative success of the cult classic 'Rags To Riches - The Rise to Prominence' I thought a sequel was in order despite the original still not having a definitive winner just yet. I wanted to make this one even more difficult to the original and came up with the following.
Is a simple one, it will consist of 5 Division's. The idea will be to manage 20 of the worst clubs from around the globe. Teams will be on a similar level regarding Squad value, rating and stadium capacity. The worst 20 teams will be managed and the remaining teams will be unmanaged. Thus making 5 Divisions of 20 teams.
Starting with original squads and a transfer budget of £20 million the aim is simple, to take your team from the lower leagues to Division 1, a difficult task in itself. However to be named the "Ultimate Manager" you will need to complete the following:
~ Win Division 1
~ Win the Domestic Cup*
~ Win the Domestic Shield*
* Please note that until the set up is created I am not entirely sure if there will be two domestic cups, however the likelihood is there will be if there are 20 clubs per league.
In the unlikely event that a manager wins one of the Domestic Cups outside of Division 1, this does count towards your trophy tally.
It is extremely important that you only spend 5 million (plus sales) out of your budget every season for the first four seasons, and do not abuse this so the transfer ruling is as follows:
~ Season 1 - Spend anything you have over 15m + sales
(You start with 20m so that gives you 5m for the season).
~ Season 2 - Spend anything you have above 10m + sales.
~ Season 3 - Can spend anything you have above 5m + sales.
~ Season 4 onwards can spend whatever funds you have.
Now what makes this different to the original concept apart from what has been outlined already will be the twist in the transfer rules. In the original concept you were allowed to buy players from unmanaged clubs, this time round you will only be able to buy players from unmanaged clubs once every two seasons, with no buying from unmanaged clubs applied to season 1. The emphasis here is to use your scouting skills (or others off the forums) to initially build your squad. So it will be as follows:
~ Season 1 - No buying from unmanaged clubs.
~ Season 2 - Buying from unmanaged clubs.
~ Season 3 - No buying from unmanaged clubs.
~ Season 4 - Buying from unmanaged clubs.
~ Season 5 onwards - To be confirmed.
I decided on going down the route of clubs from around the world, this will make the set up even more challenging than the original as the club's will be far stronger in the 4 unmanaged divisions than just British clubs. For those of you who would like to familiarise yourselves with the original idea click here.
This time around all managers will start in division 5, the amount of clubs managed will be 20, with clubs of similar rating and stadium size, please note that many clubs do not have the required 21 players, with many only having one player so no transfers will be allowed until after your chairman brings in the required amount of players, (before the first friendly.)
I appreciate that players are chosen at random and as a consequence it could significantly increase squad values, however it is a risk I am willing to take. I envisage most chairman's bringing in 10K players with the odd exception so I am making you all aware of this from the onset.
Also where you had clubs like my beloved Newcastle to contend with in division 1 clubs of this standard will be in division 2, so immediately this will be much tougher than facing the likes of Middlesbrough for example, with clubs such as Sunderland, Boca Juniors and FC Twente to name but a few in Division 4 you can see how much more difficult this set up will be.
So there we have it, I am hoping that if you like a real challenge where being a great manager is not enough but a great tactician, strategist and scout as well as being able to run a club on a financial shoe string will be of great importance, with a definitive goal which is to be the best then this set up will appeal to you.
There can only be one winner, do you think you have what it takes to be crowned the best?

2 HOT CHICKS VS HOT CHICKS 1
It was battle of the hot women in Group C this turn. Spain quickly took the lead in 4 minutes after kick off, but Sneijder equalizes 1 minute after. After a dramatic start, nothing else happened. So Spain, desperate to go top, the team pulled a small trick:
Thus, 63 minute, Xabi Alonso falls over.
PENALTY! You could hear the joy of the Spanish!
"The referee awards the penalty to Barcelona.
COSTA strikes it low and hard."
As usual, Krul guesses the right direction, but...
Spain has scored! What an atrocity!, says the Dutch.
Spain 2-1 Netherlands....
SANCHEZ vs QUARTER OF THE WORLD
In the 29th minute, Vargas gives Chile lead. It was a legit goal.
Chile is down to 10 men 1 minute after Half time! Jara assaulted Kokorin because of his shaved Justin Beiber hair! What an atrocity!

Fishing much ? lol
Dani Parejo vs Alberto Moreno is the perfect example on how tainted the sistem is ..
Benatia is much worst then Cahill (91) Terry(91) Vertonghen(91) Miranda(91) Subotic(92) Godin(92) Luiz(92) .
I guess that some retarded people who have accounts on soccerwiki promote them there .

Re: Streak to the top
I think I made a mistake with the Carabobo v La Guaira game, I thought when I looked it was the second leg between them but I must of been looking at another game and then wrote the wrong game down here, them Chilean cup games are group games so I have missed that one out, your on 1 from the game before that and VatreniUnited and Pips prediction before that game was wrong so they are on 0 from then, sorry about the mistake.

Re: Liga BBVA Ratings Predictions thread
Xavi's high rating is because of his past achievements which is indeed massive. But a drop does look imminent. He should be only one rating ahead of players like Yaya and Modric IMO.

Re: Liga BBVA Ratings Predictions thread
When Ronaldo hadn't won anything and kept scoring for fun people said that he shouldn't be a 99 because he hasn't won anything. Now Messi doesn't win anything this season but he should be a 99 because he has scored so many goals. Sounds right.
