2021.11.27 08:57 jack229915 The slippery slope challenge run
In this challenge I will be attempting to channel the spirit of all those people that mess up time after time but keep sticking around, from Chris Grayling to Mark Hughes. I'll be doing this by getting a top four Premier league team relegated into the 4th tier of English football without getting fired.
I'd like to introduce the manager for this journey down the slippery slopes, Kirk Van Houten. He sleeps in a race car, do you!?
So apparently I'm allowed blue hair, but not blue eye brows, yellow skin or any glasses.
I've decided to pick Chelsea for this one, I'm not planning to spend much cash but we start with a budget of 137 million pounds.
This is the first time I have ever played a career starting with a top fight team.
My basic plan is to win every game in Europe and the Cups, but totally tank in the league. I'll also be doing very positive conversations with the media.
To start I'm going to play the league games but only touch the controller to take kick off, goal kicks etc. And skip replays.
In the first game against Manchester United it took united 66 minutes to break down my nothing strategy before they eventually beat me 2 nil.
I beat Liverpool in the UEFA super cup
As the transfer window closes I have 2 points from the ai drawing against my nothing strategy.
I prepare for next season by getting rid of some key players so I sell: Christensen, Alonso, Van Ginkel, Pedro, Azpilicueta and Zouma all depart the club.
FC Bayern agreed to pay N'Golo Kanťe's 101 million £ pounds release clause.
8 games I'm on 2 points and bottom of the league. I'm a little worried I'm going to get fired so I'm going to win a few matches and return to the terrible form when I've progressed a little on other competitions to offset it.
I totally failed in this goal and just lost 2 nil to a Newcastle United professional ai team. Onwards. I beat Ajax in the championships league followed by another pathetic run out when I drew 2 - 2 with Burnley. I think I've gotten into character too much. Hopefully my win over Everton in the league Cup will keep the axe from falling.
We got our first league win, after 10 games, away at Watford.
After two more league losses I get an email from the board of directors saying that my position is under scrutiny. My manager rating hit 52 so I reckon I need to keep it at least at 55. On the plus side I'm 71% of the way to meeting my shirt sale targets.
A win over West Ham and Aston Villa ends me on 16 points, but out off the bottom 3. I need to take my foot off the gass and hope those wins do enough to keep the board off my back.
I sign 31 year old Mame Diouf for £242, 000,000. Breaking the club and World transfer record and ensuring that if I am fired the club will still struggle and I can begin plan B. More on plan B later if plan A fails.
As I go into the quarter finals of the league Cup I have received 5 warning emails from the board.
It's December the 22nd and I got two warning emails from the board in one day.
I beat Southampton on boxing day to keep them off my back. I hope those shirt sales are going well.
I've made it to January, I celebrated by releasing Kepa, the keeper, from his contract at a cost to the club of £5.25 million.
I get the transfer money in for Kante and immediately spend £132, 000, 000 on 72 rated Bright Osayi-samuel from QPR. I will have to keep and eye on Stoke and QPR and see what the cash did to them.
We progress in both the league Cup and FA cup.
The poor league form continues and I stay in post as January closes, we are sat in 18th, 4 points off safety. I also reach the final of the league Cup, and Giroud announces he is joining Leverkusen when his contract expires in 6 months. World record signing, 69 rated, Mane Diouf is still yet to make his debut.
I also realise that Chelsea currently has 11 players out on loan.
It's mid February now and my manager rating hits a low of 50. I decided to beat Manchester United in the league to give it a bit of a boost, it doesn't go up and in the post match interview I'm told I now mathematically impossible qualify for a champions league spot. Shirts sales aren't going as quick as I hope and have stopped around the 82% mark, I think I may be relying on those to keep my job.
At the end of Feb off the back of a 5 nil lose to Tottenham my manager rating drops to a low of 49. Squad happiness is also in the low, and would be through the floor if not for me taking every opportunity to talk to the press and be incredibly positive. Thankfully the next three matches are champions league, league Cup and FA cup. Giving me a chance to put a run together.
I beat Inter Milan 6 - 0, beat Manchester City 3 - 0 to win the league Cup and beat villa 3 - 0 to reach the fa quarter final. My manager rating is now 50, and I've not received any emails from the board for a while.
I lose to Everton in the league, but beat Leicester to reach the semi of the fa cup. I've not got an email from the board in a while so hopefully the more regular cup games, and this wins are helping.
I beat Inter in the away leg to reach the championships league Semifinal.
7 league games go by and I take a single point, a mists this I beat Valencia to make it to the championships league Semi finals.
I recall Alvaro Morata from loan, and immediately transfer list him along with every other player at the club rated over 75.
That but of admin out of the way, its on to the FA cup semi final. I beat Manchester City in a 6nil match to make it to the final.
I lose to bottom of the table Norwich and sandwiched between two wins over Bayern Munich to reach the championships league final.
I lose to Sheffield United to seal relegation with one game left to go.
I agree the sale of Rudiger, Kovacic and Reece James.
I round out the season with a 3 nil win over Wolves. In the post match interview I say that we're ready to turn things around.
I beat Arsenal in a tight one nil game to win the fa cup.
Transfer deals are agreed for Fikayo Tomori, Mason Mount, Ross Barley and Ruben Loftus- Cheek.
We beat Barcelona in the championships league final, now we just wait for the board.
Sadly we only got 92% of the shirt sales
I get an email from the Board….
THEY WANT ME TO STAY!
They explained that they are not entirely satisfied with results but believe I deserve another chance. Championship here we come!
End of Part 1
We start in the championships with an objective of winning the championship, reaching the semi of the fa cup and championship league and a shirt sale objective again, plus some youth development objectives that I will try to hit.
I start the season by declining the pre season tournament and transfer listing all remaining players rated over 70.
Four players' contracts expired, including World record signing Diouf, who appears to have retired at the end of his contract having never played a minute of football, sometimes you can never tell if the big money signings will pay off.
Hudson-Odo, Jorginho, Isaiah Brown, Kennedy and Michy Batshuayi also all leave the club for transfer fees.
Willy Caballero seems to have retired so 60 rated actual player Cummings and Youth academy Collins will l have to battle for the number 1 jersey. don't really have Striker anymore so I stick Pulisic up front to lead the line.
The new look squad picks up the Community shield and the Uefa Super Cup and drops all possible points in the league.
In spite of receiving over £100 million in exchange for bright osayi-samuel QPR have seemingly got them selves relegated to league 1. I decide to give them a hand, and offer them £465,000,000 for rotational striker Paul Smyth.
New World record signing Paul Smyth marks his debut in a league 1 nil home defeat to Middlesbrough.
After another loss to Blackburn I get an odd email from Pašalić asking if I would consider giving him a chance to fill one of the spots in midfield. He is currently the second high rated player at the club and first team captain in the default team sheet.
Paul Smyth shows he's worth every penny of his 9 figure transfer fee with a brace of goals against Grimsby in the first round of the league Cup as he makes his first start coming in for a suspended Pulisic.
As August and the transfer window comes to a close another player, Lewis Baker, leaves as Bașakșehir agree to pay his release clause. I complete the two youth development objectives and get my first point as I draw with an awful Hull team that allows me 73% of the possession without me touching the controller. Victor Moses also leaves on transfer deadline day.
Another point comes from the league, I beat Dynamo Kyiv in the championships league group stage, lose 5 - 0 to Huddersfield, get my first warning email from the board and beat West Brom in the league Cup.
My manager rating drops to 42. I lose to Watford.
On the 8th of October I got fired, I take a 62,000 pay cut and take the only job I can at Rotherham.
I decide to go back to the previous auto save and rewrite history. I beat Watford 2 nil to get my first win of the season, and raise my rating to 46. I also got two straight red cards in that match. This win keeps me in post.
I survive to lose another day after a deafet to Reading.
My manager rating hits 40 and I'm. Terminated again, after I win my champions league game against club brugge. I reset to beat Forest in the game before. This saves me but I think between now and January I might have to win a few games to stay in post before I can get cudos for cup form. I sit in 23rd above Rotherham.
I string my games in Europe and the domestic with wins in the league at the end of October. I qualify for the group stage and move a point out of the drop zone. My manager rating goes up to 49.
I lose to bottom of the table Rotherham, Charlton and Derby to re enter the bottom 3.
I win my champions league game and get another mark in the L collum against Millwall.
I have to beat Wigan to avoid getting the chop.
I win my champions league group but am forced to beat Portsmouth to avoid the manager rating hitting 39 and getting sacked, I put 7 past Liverpool in an odd game that gets me into the league Cup semi final.
My rating hits 40 again on Christmas eve but I'm able to avoid a sacking with a draw to Sheffield Wednesday, a draw at Charlton works too.
As we hit the new year several 70ish rated players leave the club but Pulisic, Pašalić and Zappacosta remain as a hangover from the Premier league squad. Transfer have left me with a 88 million pounds transfer budget that I intend to put to good use by the end of this window.
Progress in the fa cup and league Cup bringing my rating up to 44 giving me space to lose to bottom of the table Rotherham. I accidentally loaned out a youth player that was in my normal first 11 so quickly recalled him for a cost of 5k. Strangely my manager rating went up to 45 with the recall.
In my next match I'm forced to win at Leeds to avoid being sacked, after the game my rating drops to the lowest I've seen it 39. At this rate I might struggle to actually get relegated. I'm two points out of the drop zone on 25 points above Swansea, Sunderland, Wigan and Huddersfield plus Rotherham who have secured bottom with only 14 points. If I do end up staying both in post and in the championships I can only hope next year's goals are less ambitious, giving me more scope to fail.
I have to beat Wigan to avoid being sacked. In transfer news I get offers for Pulisic and Pasalic and Zappacosta agrees a free transfer. My youth academy goal keeper also leaves.
As I beat Millwall in the FA cup Pulisic leaves for 50 million. I reach the league Cup final.
A draw at Birmingham gets me to the January transfer deadline day.
I continue to throw money at QPR and sign 66 rated rotational winger Olamide Shodipo for £135,000,000. Being that qpr currently sit 3rd in league 1 they don't seem to be investing the funds very well.
I lose to Huddersfield and get a warning email from the board as I've only sold 13% of the shirt target.
I'm able to lose to Stoke, I'm annoyingly 3 points clear of the drop now. I win my round of 16 champions league games.
Have to draw with Watford to stay in post.
I win the league Cup in a 6 - 4 win over city. My manager rating drops from 41 down to 40. Really showing the value of that particular competition.
I progress in the FA Cup bringing the rating up to 42. And to draw to Blackburn. Beat progress in the champions league and the FA Cup again.
I'm able to lose to Forest and Hull, putting me one spot above the drop.
We lose to Hull.
I'm keeping a very close eye on Sunderland and Wigan, like me two former premier league teams trying to break into league 1, in the two relegation places below me.
My run continues as I lose to Brentford and Middlesbrough!
I beat Bayern in the first leg of the champions league semi final.
I'm delighted to lose to Swansea in between the legs.
In the away leg I win 5 nil to reach the semi.
The board takes the decision to terminate me after a win over Middlesbrough. I take a 62,000 a week pay cut and join Portsmouth. Plan B must begin…

Or else caps, flux, or… how about a Winter Man Mask? That’s appropriate right?

2021.11.27 08:57 lawrence1998 Answering Summoner School Questions Nobody Asked Me To
I've been on this sub a while and there's always a lot of fantastic questions from players who genuinely want to improve across all ranks.
There's equally a lot of excellent / correct answers but I do find many questions go unanswered or, in my opinion, receive poor / uninformed answers so I have tackled a few that fit the bill in a video found here wherein I try to promote the correct mentality to solve problems. I'd appreciate feedback and encourage disagreements.
