Hello and welcome to the start, or re-boot, of an FM challenge series that is not of anyway, shape or form related to the hit BBC Show 'The Apprentice'. As Sir Zap I will set a team every week for willing participants to take on and, after a season, you will send in screenshots of your save to me via the private messaging system. I will then tally up how you have done with the points system I will explain below and then, whoever the worst manager is, will be fired and forever doomed to manage Blyth Spartans U13's, and nobody wants that! The winner will be crowned as my next Assistant Manager and will team up with me wherever I go. Each challenge will have a time limit of 10 days and if you have not sent in Screenshots to me by the deadline then you will be automatically fired for wasting my time.

There are certain screenshots that I will need you to send me:
-Transfer History
- Results
- Final League table
- Any awards you pick up that match any in the 'Accolades' section

So that's it, this is off and running. Just tell me if you want to be in and I will post the first team. I would rather have people who are regular's in chat so if you are not a regular, don't bother I won't count you. Now get out of my sight, the lot of you...
Im In Zap Wooo
I'll do this.
I'm in m8 :))

Right then, for your first challenge you will be off to the Dutch Eredivisie to manage the infamous Feyenoord Rotterdam. Feyenoord have a fair amount of history, winning the Champions League in 1970, the Europa League twice in 1974 and, more recently, 2002. The club have also claimed 14 league titles, however they haven't lifted the Eredivisie since 1999. Last season they came close, however finished 2nd. They have lost their main goal threat in the summer to Southampton in Graziano Pelle, the big Italian scored 23 goals last season and 27 the season before. Aswell as losing their main striker, they have also lost their manager to the same club. But will that matter? Will they be laughing at Koeman as their new manager win them their first league title for 15 seasons? Will their new main man up-front eat up Pelle's goals? Only time will tell, you have until the 10th...
Intresting... This Should Be A Challenge
I'm in
I'm in! :)
I'm in!
Hopefully you will able to run this with more success than I did, I had a problem with lots of inactive people, but this will defo be third time lucky! :P
