Been looking for this thread for ages but kept calling it the Rochdale Challenge. 

 

I have officially completed this, winning the league with my Rochdale in Season 18, with 99 points, beating off a strong challenge from Arsenal who finished in 95 points (and were on a 25 game winning streak).

 

Mario Gotze was played of the season with 16 goals, 13 assists and an AvP of 8.05.

Sadly cant find the initial Rochdale Challenge thread so Ill update here

 

THE CHALLENGE IS FINALLY COMPLETE

 

 

In the 37th game of the season, we took on Newcastle knowing a win would seal the title title. Early goals to Laporte and Alexis Sanchez got us 2-0 up before Newcastle made it 2-1. An Alvaro Morata 60th minute goal restored the two goal lead and proved decisive when Newcastle made it 3-2.  It means we are on 96 points and GD +68, ahead of Arsenal on 92 points and a GD  +87.

 

After 3 promotions in 3 seasons, our finishes have gone:

 

Season 4- 4th

Season 5- 7th

Season 6- 4th

Season 7- 4th

Season 8- 5th

Season 9- 5th

Season 10- 3rd

Season 11- 6th

Season 12- 8th

Season 13- 7th

Season 14- 4th

Season 15- 5th

Season 16- 11th

Season 17- 8th

 

Season 18- WINNERS

 

In addition we've won:

 

4 English Cups (Seasons 2,4,5,7), runner ups here twice (Seasons 3 and 10)

2 Charity Shields (Seasons 6 and 8)

 

In no small part down to the manager of Arsenal, who also has been there from the start and built a ridiculously good side, quit after he won season 17. In his place came Gordon and the challenge became easier. 

 

Additionally, sold up a lot of the squad and cut numbers down and made three big midseason transfers to give us the boost, Manuel Neuer (17 games at 6.29), Ivan Rakitic (18 games, 2 goals, at 7.17) and Cristiano Ronaldo (17 games, 12 goals, 13 assists, 9 MOTMs at 8.94).

 

In all of this my best transfer was Mario Gotze for 400k back on 8 October 2010, he scored 16 goals and got 13 assists this season. My best profits were buying Thomas Muller for 4.7million and later selling him to Arsenal for 51.7mil. 

 

My worst deals though were selling Neymar back to Santos for 2.7mil after buying him for 650k, both of these deals happened in 2009 though. 

 

 

The XI that started in the title clinching game was

 

Neuer (96)

Carvajal (91) Marquinhos (90) Laporte (90) Bernat (91)

Henderson (91) Kroos (94)

Gotze (93) Xhaka (91) Morata (90)

Sanchez (94)

 

Bench: Aurier (90) Murru (86) Chambers (87) Barkley (89) Fabregas (94) Rakitic (93) Carvalho (89)

 

Additional players : Ronaldo (99) Gimenez (90) 

 

 

What a time the forum was when this challenge started.

The game has changed to a point where a challenge like this would be nearly impossible now.

Wonder how many of us took the title before quitting?
