The save

Roda Kerkrade have spent the last 5 seasons mid table in the Eredivisie but find themselves in the relegation zone and 5 points away from Vitesse. Your going to have to pull something off to keep them in the Eredivisie. On the plus side, on of your strikers is the joint top goal scorer, can he save you from relegation?

What are FMScout Challenges?

FMScout Challenges run as a fantasy league, every week a new challenge will arise. We plan to do different leagues around the world each week with Easy, Medium, Hard and Extra Hard as the difficulty. These will run as a fantasy league, meaning the more challenges you do the more points you will get! Your points are added to an "Overall Leaderboard" which is situated below. These challenges are usually quite short as we try to conquer cheaters.

So I loved these last year but have been away with work but well I guess I'm continuing where I left off with being bottom :)
