The Five Point Five

An attempt at the Pentagon challenge which has haunted me for one too many iterations of the game...

I've been an FM player for a good 10 years now and I've started a couple of different attempts at the pentagon challenge but it never truly felt "right" for me. Given my issues with getting into a game this year, I've decided that it's time to give it another go and see whether I can break both curses.

Why do I refer to it as a "5.5"? Because Australia. Unpopular opinion as far as football goes, but I'm willing to give up a few more FM seasons trying to win Australian titles and the Asian Champions League with an Aussie team.

The more eagle-eyed of you may notice that I've not gone for a particularly stellar casting for Europe, and that is intentional. I find myself uninspired and disenchanted managing in Europe's big leagues, so I've got some "contenders" and Eastern European nations to keep things fresh for me!

An interesting approach and I look forward to what is to come here. The pentagon challenge is a very long, but rewarding one if you can pull it off. I really hope that you can stick with this, as it would be a great story and save to read about.
