Hey guys,

I started playing FM way back to the early days when it was still called Championship Manager.

And over the years I tried a lot of different clubs and challenges of my own (one being bringing Southend United to the Premier League with success), but the one thing that intrigued me the most at a certain point was the Pentagon Challenge.

Most of you have probably heard of this challenge, but for you guys who don’t know what it is let me explain.
When you start the Pentagon Challenge in FM the goal basically is to win all 5 Champions League competitions around the world.
• AFC Champions League thats the one from Asia
• CAF Champions League from Africa
• CONCACAF CL in North America
• Copa Libertadores which is the CL of South America
• And finally the Eufa Champions League in Europe
You have to do this in 1 save.
You have to start unemployed and with no prior experience to your name.
Meaning you do not have any trainer badges and your reputation should be that of a Sunday league footballer.

Now trust me guys this is a though one.
I had many attempt on this challenge in previous versions of Football Manager mostly playing them together with a buddy of mine to keep ourselves motivated.
But ass you can guess already he always and I mean always beat me to it in the end finishing up a year in front of me and after that I mostly lost the motivation to continue it myself and just never finished it off basically!

Honestly this shit has to stop immediately ---- I mean so many hours, so many days, even months of my life invested in this game and never achieving GOD mode by completing this Pentagon Challenge. Hell no more!!

This sure will be a long series but I wanted to share it with you guys and finally completing the Pentagon Challenge once and for all.

For this Pentagon Challenge I will not load up custom databases with extra leagues as I see other players do.
Reason for this is when this challenge originally became famous you just had to do with what you had.
No extra leagues, no nothing.
So its back to basics.

Wish me luck and come have a look should you wanne follow our journey.
