My River Plate Challenge

Recommended Posts

I was on the Computer, bored (nothing to do in the summer holidays :o) so I decided to give my self a challenge.

I decided to take a River Plate in Division 4 of World Champ 3030.

I know what your thinking - " So what, not the hardest challeng ever" - but I urge you to try it.

All you have to do is get a River Plate in a new WC, and try your best with them.

Post how you do here :)

I will post mine soon

Re: My River Plate Challenge

I hate to say it, but i think i have one of the best river plate in SM :D

After 1 and a half season of hard work, this is my first team.

R. ENKE

A. FRIEDRICH - G. CHIELLINI - A. GAMBERINI

A. TYMOSCHUK

M. AUGUSTO FERNANDEZ - M. BALLACK- R. VAN DER VAART - P. FEINDOUNO

G. DENIS - M. NIANG

dennis is just a legend, for some reason he can't stop scoring :D

This is my second team for the cup games

R. ENKE

C. LELL - V. KOMPANY - V. MARCELO

L. PONZIO

T. DIEGO CAPEL - K. ZYRYANOV - A. ORTEGA - S. HUSZTI

R. FALCAO - P. BOJAN KRKIC

my youth squad has been generating tonnes of money, with the likes of marko marin, Camacho, Henrique, rafael carioca, renan, sears and plessis.

fyi, this setup is also one of the most competitive i have been. So, this river plate is one of my favourite clubs in SM.

make your river plate better than mine!

cheers

Thats a great squad mate :)

Another challenge, I like it :rolleyes:

I will try mate. The thing is, I am in Division 4, so I can't really get that much money yet.

But if my youths start to increase, I might have a better one then you :rolleyes:

Re: My River Plate Challenge

I would just like to put my hat in the ring for best River Plate in SM.

I have been managing River Plate in WC 47 we are currently in season 7 and I took over the club halfway thru season 4 with river Plate languishing in 12th place in Div 3, however over the next few seasons these have been my achievements:

season 4-Div 3-3rd-Promoted

season 5-Div 2-4th-agonisingly lost out on promotion by a point

season 6-Div 2-3rd-promoted

season 6-World Champ Cup Winner

season 7-after disastrous start reith 8points in first 9games now 12th after 23games with 30points

I have assembled the following squad through good deals use of money spinners etc:

Senior

GK- Enke 30- 91

LB-Molinaro 24-89

LB Lopez 26-91

RB-Alves 25-94

RB Lell 24-89

CB Pablo 27-92

CB Garay 21-91

CB Salcido 28-91

LM-Diego capel 20-89

RM-Rodriguez 27-93

RM-Bellusschi 24-90

CM-Merieles 25-91

CM-Flamini 24-92

CM-Sjneider 24-93

CM-Ederson 22-89

W-Giovinco 21-87

W-Robinho 24-95

F-Arshavin 27-93

F-Huntelaar 25-92

F-Villa 26-94

My youth squad of 37 includes gems such as:

Sergio Asenjo GK 19-85

Rui Patricio GK 20-86

De Silvestri RB 20-86

Da Silva RB 18-74

Fer RB 18-78

Fazio CB 21-87

Bostock CM 16-74

Balotelli F 18-84

Jovetic 18-87 (these are a sample of the great potential in youth team)

This along with my Lyon and Corinthians team is my favourite setup in SM and one of the most competitive, hopefully I have done River Plate proud!!

River Plate

WC 3030

Div 4

River Plate 1 - 0 Cruz Azul

River Plate secured a win yesterday againt unmanager Cruz Azul. After quite a uneventful match, Doyle scored the only goal of the match after 66 minutes. This put River Plate in 3rd position, tied with Rubin Kazan.

However, their was bad news. River Plate lost another striker due to injury, main forward Falcao has been ruled out for about 5 weeks. Giving Armand Derri another head ache.

On another positive, 3 people came in to the Buenos Aires. Veteran Boudewijn Zenden joined for 3.5 mil from Marseille. 2 more youngsters came in iswell, Franco Douglas and Hugo Ventura joined.

River Plate

WC 3030

Div 4

A week of mixed emotions! Thats what it was for River Plate fans this week. As I signed Geovanni Dos Santos on loan' date=' I got offered the Saint Ettiene job. Their was no doubt in my mind what the answer was :

Armand Derri on Saint - Ettiene job offer

" I said no straight away. I, the team and the staff have worked too hard for me to leave so soon. And their team was nothing like ours. I would even have turned down the Real Madrid job If it got offered to me"

And, after a 1 - 1 draw at Napoli, River Plate lay in the 3rd in the table.

River Plate

WC 3030

Div 4

River Plate are doing really well. They are sitting in second place in the league and just beat Lazio's Best XI 2-1 with some of my reserves!!!!

My last match in the league was against first placed Standard Liege. River Plate beat them 3 - 0, away!

Unfortunatly star striker Radamel Falcao is still injured but is expected to be back on the twelve. When that date comes, division 4 should watch out. Geovanni Dos Santos + Radamel Falcao !!!!! :eek:

League Table :

Standard Liege - 27

River Plate - 24

Deportivo La Coronu - 22

Galatasary - 21

Only 3 points away! Come on River Plate!!!

Re: My River Plate Challenge

Things are slightly different for my river plate.

Heading towards the end of my second season in charge, with 7 more games to go, we sit top at 71 points, roma in second with 66 points.

Recent major transfers include the sale of enke with the acquisition of akinfeev. Santacrooce also come in, together with Piotr Trochowski at the expense of huszti.

Also, we're pretty successful in the cups, winning the world champ cup and reaching the semis of the world champ shield.

Hopefully, we will be able to win div 1 and bring glory to river plate!

this is the first team atm.

akinfeev

kompany gamberini chiellini

tymoschuk

trochowski VDV Ballack Feindouno

dennis niang

Re: My River Plate Challenge

Thanks Ray :)

Can I just ask, when you guys took over your River plate's, were they in division 4?

You seem to have done very well with them.

Sam Vokes rose to 80 so I can use him incase of injuries, but Doyle went down to 87 :o

Good Luck with your teams :)

Re: My River Plate Challenge

I took over River Plate after 14games in season4 when they were languashing near the bottom of Div 3 (my first ever SM Club :) )

my league progress since is:

season 4-3rd in Div 3-Promoted

Season 5-4th in Div 2 missing out on promotion by a point :( losing finalist in SM shield

Season 6-2nd in Div 2- Cup winner in SM cup

Season 7-Currently 13th after 34games for reasons stated above

Your doing a great job Armand hope you get promotion, secret is to build bit by bit thats what im trying to do and got a pretty impressive squad now compared to the shambles whn I took over...you will get there Armand as long as you got patiene,time and put the effort in i know you will be a success!!

ps: Rep for doing such a good job and making us RP managers everywhere proud!!

Re: My River Plate Challenge

After winning the cup, my river plate hit a really bad patch. 4 defeats in 6 matches meant roma closed to gap to 2 points.

Still at the top of the table, but only have a 2 point lead over second placed roma with 1 more game to go. Last game against Milan, really have to avoid a defeat to win div 1.

and i added lorik cana to my squad.

cheers

Re: My River Plate Challenge

After quitting River Plate as part of my News Resolution, I got them back a few days ago.

My team was not changed much...only 1 or 2 of my youths had been taken and Falcao and Dzagoev :(

But I did have alot of money and was in Division 3. :D

So I got them promoted ( I had quit them one match before the season had ended) to Division 3 and now they are half way through this season.

I guess you could say that this is not my achievment..but it was my squad that I had built.

Right now I am in 3rd place in Division 3 and I recently bought Modric, Given, Govou, Parejo and a few more youths. I want to do the back to back and get them promoted to Division 2 :)

River Plate

WC 3030

Div 3 (to be 2 soon)

UPDATE

I have secured promotion to the 2nd division..making that a back to back promotion for me.

In the last matches (last 4 matches) I have played my youth teams to keep them happy

Armand Derri

Well done lads, back to back promotion is hard job and every single player in the team tried hard. COME ON DIVISON 2

Alot of my players have risen and I have a team in my youths, that could win Division 4!!!

Am looking to buy many more youths but sell quite a few as well.
