The Division 4 Challenge!

Re: The Division 4 Challenge!

Notts County confirmed as Division 3 champions with 7 games left, after thrashing Huddersfield 8-1 to go 23 points clear of Blackpool.

129 goals scored so far, hoping to get to at least 150.

Granero is amazing.. haven't seen better stats although I guess it helps playing against the lower sides. :o

Season 1: Played 14 - 16 goals - 9 assists - 4 MoM - 9.07

This season: Played 25 - 26 goals - 27 assists - 9 MoM - 9.16

6 goals and 2 assists in 7 Cup/Shield games as well :P

Re: The Division 4 Challenge!

Unfortunately, my Darlington were unable to win the First Division at the first time of asking. After 3 successive championships I was only able to finish 2nd. This was mainly down to a very poor start to the season, but a very strong finish leaves me with high hopes for next season

:)

This is how my squad is looking at the moment:

Buffon

Maicon - Puyol - Lucio

Zanetti

Iniesta - De Rossi - Essien - Robben

David Villa - Rooney

Buffon

Sagna - Pique - Evra

Fletcher

Marin - Meireles - Schweinsteiger - David Silva

Pato - Lisandro

With Ibrahimovic at an external club, I'll be looking to sign him and strengthen my first 11 :D

Re: The Division 4 Challenge!

My Bradford now sit 1st after 29 games in division 3 with 73 points (15 clear of derby in second) , I have won my last 7 and im unbeaten in 12 in the league with only 4 little hick ups all season. I was knocked out of both cup semi finals on penaltys and i've really improved my squad from last season , changing my approach from signings on quality and not youth/risers.

League - 1st (29 games)

Shield - Semi's V City (3-3 lost 2-1 on pens)

Cup - Semi's V Stoke (1-1 lost 3-0 on pens)

First Team

Helton(90)

Romero(88)

Arbeloa (91) Lucio(94) Van Buytan(90) Adriano(91)

O'shea(89) - Hyppia (89) - Bonnuci (88) - Badstuber (88)

Busquets (91) Motta (90)

Marchisio(90) Granero (89)

Hernadez(90) Van Der Vaart (92) Pandev (92)

Pedro (90) - Perotti (89) - Muller (88)

Cavani (90)

Chamakh (90)

Other noteable players - Borriello (90) , Romero (88) , Rossi (87) , Botia (87) , M'villa (87) , Canales (87)

and about 40 other players :D , Just had a deal collapse for Abidal to as im 808k in debt after last nights 5-1 win

Re: The Division 4 Challenge!

Already started changing my Notts County squad for next season, want to get it done now and see how much I have left for risers. 3 games left, on 94 points now, scored 149 goals with a GD of 118.

Slightly annoying that I get offers from external sides for players not on the transfer list, but no offers for those that are :rolleyes:

Since I last updated my transfers, have sold;

Muslera - 8.6m

Saha - 7.6m

Machuca - 4.3m

Castillejos - 2.5m

Bassong - 9.7m

Enoh - 6.6m

And signed;

Frey - 14.3m

Borriello - 7.8m

Samuel - 9m

Jerome Boateng - 7.4m, only bought him as he was a free agent though :o

Alderweireld, Sane, Javi Garcia, Trasch and Carcela-Gonzalez are all transfer listed, already have a few targets to sign when they've all gone.

So starting line-up at the moment is;

Frey

Boateng - Samuel - Kjaer

Pablo Hernandez - Motta - Javi Garcia - Muller

Granero

Santa Cruz - Borriello

Subs: De Gea | Badstuber | Trasch | Canales | Paloschi

Still not great, but should hopefully be better soon :)

Re: The Division 4 Challenge!

Season no. 3 just ended and I have made it to Division 1. I don't think I'll be able to challenge for the title because I don't have enough depth in my team but I'm aiming to be in the top 4.

My squad at the moment:

Neuer (91)

Vermaelen (91) - Pique (94) - Cissokho (90)

Mascherano (94)

Mata (91) - De Rossi (94) - Stankovic (93) - Di Maria (90)

Milito (95) - Luis Suarez (90)

Neuer (91)

Mario Fernandes (85) - Otamendi (88) - Sakho (88)

Moussa Sissoko (89)

Pablo Hernandez (90) - Aquilani (90) - Marchisio (90) - Benayoun (90)

Derdiyok (88) - N'gog (86)

Some notable youngsters:

Milan Badelj, Victor Ruiz, Leonel Galeano, Patricio Rodriguez, Danny Rose, Andrej Kramaric, Xherdan Shaqiri, Gai Assulin. I also have about a dozen other Serbian, Swiss, Croatian & Austrian players who'll rise in a couple of weeks.

Re: The Division 4 Challenge!

Getting bored with my Huddersfield Town right now. Currently in its 5th season after 4 consecutive league wins brought us from Division 4 to the Premier League. Also won a Cup and a Shield along the way.

Stopped buying risers already for some time as I have a settled team, but the setup feels dead and so my interest has somewhat waned.

My First XI:

Casillas

Maicon - Vidic - Chiellini

Fabregas

Ronaldo - Xavi - Kaka - Iniesta

Torres - Messi

My Reserves:

Casillas

Dani Alves - Pique - Kjaer

Mascherano

David Silva - Alonso - Pjanic - Ozil

Pato - Higuain

And then I've also got Hummels, Subotic, Hazard, Marchisio, Dzagoev, Jovetic and co on the bench. :eek:

Re: The Division 4 Challenge!

Starting to get interested in my Bradford side again. Sold a few and got some good players in, so hope to push for the title now.

Unfortunately I did have an accepted offer for Rooney who was at an unmanaged side. Then they got taken over by somebody with the exact same name as the Arsenal manager, who had him shortlisted but never offered. :rolleyes: Lack of cash obviously! Ticket sent. :)

Anyway, sold Hulk, Carrico, Van Buyten, Falcao and Busquets. And signed Chivu, Van Persie and Lucio. Plenty of cash left as well, hopefully to get Rooney once this manager is kicked out. ;)

Re: The Division 4 Challenge!

Ive quit my Barcelona to attempt the division four challenge with Brighton and Hove Albion, not well know names signed but many risers bought with a small budget along side selling some players. (any advise is welcome)

Re: The Division 4 Challenge!

I have took over a Rotherham side in EC2933 today and hope to win Division 1 with them sometime in the future,I'd rather do it in a fairly competitive setup like this than one that's dead as it seems like more of a challenge and it'll also be easier to get top players of managers when the time comes around.

i think you should sell marchisio, romero and then buy olic and thiago silva. Both of em could rise further in the next rating changes as they are both under rated at their clubs. On a whoole though you have a brilliant squad.

Re: The Division 4 Challenge!

I started one with Bradford City in EC5807. I no its not the most alive setup but ah well. It was clear that it was managed before and they sold everything good as i had a 32m budget. So i thought i'd buy a few 80s :)

http://www.soccermanager.com/club.php?action=squad&clubid=16449583

Played one this season so far and smashed Rochdale 4-0. Sit top through GD obv.

Re: The Division 4 Challenge!

UPDATE:

Right so i'm currently at the end of season three and waiting for the new season to kick off. I won division two by about 20 points which means i shall progress up a level to division one in which my team will be tested against the big boys. I'm quite happy that my team can finish in the top four but i aim to win the title on my second attempt in division one. Recently sold off alot of risers and purchased some more players. So this is how my team is looking at the moment:

Carrasso, Adel

Albiol, Van Der Wiel---Pique, ??? (TBC)---Silva, Badstuber---Evra, Cissokho (TBC)

Pedro, Hazard---Fletcher, Ramires---Sneijder, Busquets---Robben, Di Maria

Higuain, Suarez---Dzeko, Muller

Other Notable Players:

Tabanou, M'Vila, San Jose, Dominguez, Smalling, Matip, Haruna.

Should be signing the likes of Cissokho, Khedira, Kroos, Vermaelen and Lloris very soon. And that should bring my squad value upto about 370m and fully fit for the likes of Man U, Chelsea and Arsenal.:)
