In part 12 we play the final game of our first ever season in the Swiss Super League against Lugano. Have we been relegated? Have we avoided the drop? Or do we have a relegation/promotion playoff around the corner? We also find out how the Liechtenstein Cup went and whether we will have European Football in season 6.

One thing is certain, season 5, whatever the outcome, has been an emotional rollercoaster with some amazing highs (beating Basel 3-0 at home as we saw in part 11) and some terrible lows (injuries, suspensions, relegation scrap). I guess that is what makes Football Manager 2020 so addictive right?

Part 12 - S5 An Emotional Rollercoaster
Nice, I like this story!

Thanks! I appreciate the kind words. It's been all going to plan so far, season 5 is probably the first time where we have really been up against it and not had it our own way. It's such a step up. For example, Young Boys have Thomas Meunier in this save and he earns £49k per week. The wage budget of our squad is £12.5k per week. So Meunier earns in a week what our whole squad earns in a month. It's hard being the small club haha
After avoiding relegation in season 5, we check in to see our early progress in season 6. After a significant budget increase we take a look at some of our key summer recruits, check out our progress in the Europa Conference League (or whatever it is called) and we have a home game against Servette in the Swiss Super League.

It's all change at FC Balzers with a number of new signings including a former England international, a regen who looks to be a star of the North Macedonia NT and a couple of signings from arch-rivals, Vaduz.

Part 13 - S6 Dizzy Heights
Season 6 has finished and in part 14 we find out just how we got on in our second ever season in the Swiss Super League and how we fared in the Liechtenstein Cup that we attempt to win for the third year in a row. We also look at a new signing, the son of a former Barcelona player, ponder our plans for next season and look at a couple of players set to leave the club.

This is followed by an international game against Georgia at home. Surely a winnable match and one that we need to target if we want to move the National Team forward in the same way that the club side have been.

Part 14 - S6 The Best of the Rest
In part 15 of this Football Manager 2020 challenge that I call home there is a lot to cover. We review our league and European form so far in season 7. Although the league form may leave a little to be desired (is third season syndrome a thing?) we are having a European adventure that we can never forget. We look back on what surely goes down as the biggest result in FC Balzers history... maybe even the biggest result in the history of ANY Liechtenstein club.

We also play a tough league game away at title chasing Young Boys and review a couple of very interesting new signings. First up, a former Premier League winner and ex-Man City player, then a former Serie A goalkeeper with more experience than I can shake a stick at!

Part 15 - S7 A European Adventure
In this latest episode of The Great Liechtenstein Challenge we have a lot of things to cover as season 7 has been... eventful so far. We take a look at our less than desirable league campaign and the players that will be leaving in the summer as we plan a clear out. We also look at our AMAZING form in the Europa Conference League and ponder what the future may hold in that tournament.

We have a Super League match against Basel which we cover in this episode and we look at a couple of new signings and a key player who left the club after two and a half seasons to join Villarreal!

Part 16 - S7 Going Big In Europe
Following season 7 where we played 59 competitive fixtures it was clear that we needed to improve not only the starting 11, but the squad as a whole. In part 17 we take you over the highs and lows of season 7 and take a look at the new signings that have come in to drive the club forward.

Gone are some of the familiar players and in are some new faces including a Switzerland international legend. We also review our current season 8 progress including the Europa Conference League.

There is also a Swiss Super League match against St. Gallen to enjoy!

Part 17 - S8 Changing of the Guard
It's part 18 and there is so much to cover in this episode including our first league match of season 9 away to Sion. We also review how season 8 went as we were in the hunt for three trophies. We take a look at some new signings, including a former Liverpool and England man and some departures including a huge player for us.

There is also time to swing by the manager profile page for the first time, take a look at a few new staff members, the finances of the club and how the facility upgrades are going. Like I said, plenty to cover in just 1 video!

Part 18 - S9 Clinical Finishing
In part 19 of The Great Liechtenstein Challenge we play TWO matches! First up is a Europa Conference League group match against Club Brugge. Second we have a league game away at Servette which will take us up to the half way point of the season. Not to do too much of a spoiler alert but there are goals galore in this episode!

Part 19 - S9 Goals Galore
It's part 20 of The Great Liechtenstein Challenge where I hope to celebrate a decade in charge of FC Balzers with a successful tenth season. In this episode we take a look back at season 9 and just how close we came to winning every competition we were in. We also look at two or three big name departures and a few exciting arrivals. We contemplate what the season may hold and also take a look at a few players we are still trying to sign!

Season 10 is then kicked off with the first game of the season, a Super League match at home to Zurich with a few of those new signings on display.

In Part 21 of this Great Liechtenstein Challenge we kick off by looking at the form of the club side, FC Balzers, as we hit the halfway point of the season. We also take a look at some new signings and two huge departures for differing reasons.

Following our review of the situation with the club side, we turn our attention to the national team where we play Andorra in a UEFA Nations League Promotion/Relegation Playoff fixture!

Part 21 - S10 Is History Repeating
It's part 22 of The Great Liechtenstein Challenge and we start a brand new decade. We have been with the club for 10 years and are looking to kick off season 11 in style. This video features the opening match of the season against St. Gallen.

Before that we take a look at how season 10 went for the club, the signings we have made (and missed out on), a facilities check and say goodbye to one or two familiar faces.
