After my last story crashed (thanks to adobe Photoshop), I've decided to try again.

Hello and welcome to my attempt at the Pentagon Challenge.
Disclaimer: My name isn't George King.

The Challenge

For those of you, who do not know, the pentagon Challenge is when you try to win the 5 different continental champions leagues. The AFC Champions League (Asia) , UEFA Champions League (Europe), CONACAF Champions League (North America), CAF Champions league (Africa) and the Lideborates Cup (South America).

The leagues

Africa: Ghana, South Africa, Morocco and Egypt.

Asia: Australia, China, India, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Thailand.

Europe: Austria, Belgium, Belarus, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, France, Germany, Greece, Holland, Italy, Portugal, Russia, San Marino, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine.

North America: USA and Mexico.

South America: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Peru and Uruguay.

Players: 159,000.(Large database)
This may seem like a lot, but I've loaded every country in the world before with no crashes!

If you want to download some of the additional leagues I'm using, they're here.
Trophies Won: 0
Current Club: United FC
Month: July 2012

Looking for a club

As you can see I applied for about 15 jobs, including 3 international posts.
I did decide to stay away from Europe (despite there being 3 European job applications) due to it being the most challenging.
Surprisingly there were no jobs in North America, but the season there ends in December I think.

Witbank Spurs and United FC, both from South Africa did accept my offers the next day, but I politely delayed them both for a week, secretly waiting for some other replies.I also delayed another South African team, Milano United.
Go to Scotland and lead them to the World Cup :D

Yeah, I was hoping I could do this Internationally as well :)
Not sure if my rep's high enough tho, set to automatic :(
Yep, I lost out :(
Have you used some custom db's? If so, can you give me the links please? Cheers :)

First Club

I decided to go ahead and take United FC's offer.

I told them if they gave me £1,500 until 2014 I would develop players using their youth system AS well as signing young players for he first team.

Unfortunately the club are in debt so I will have to put all of my tiny transfer budget to accommodate the wages.
Good luck Matt, I really enjoyed my time in the Republic (with Dynamos)!

The Club


Wow. The staff are terrible.To be honest, I would sack every single one of them, if my wage budget wasn't so bad and there is the question of what replacements I can actually convince to join the club.

The Players

Our squad is very good,but there are many areas to improve.We have no backup keeper, not even in the reserves and I don't trust are 2 reserve strikers to be good backup.Are only keeper, Kock is promising, but he needs to fulfill his potential now to be a first teamer. We have lots of promising young players, the best of which is probably 20 year old Andrew Masango.

Thanks. I've managed in the South before with F.C.A.K I think it was and it's really fun.Only got 3/4's of the way through last time (couldn't conquer Europe).

WTH! We're £3.82k in debt anyway X-(
Good luck Matt!! :D
