The Pentagon Challenge

What is it?

What is The Pentagon? Well its this, you start unemployed with a Sunday League reputation and you try to win all five continental Champions Leagues(European Champions League, South American Champions League, Asian Champions League, African Champions League and North American Champions League) in one save game.

Once you win all five your status will be cemented as some sort of FM God, we don't want any cheaters. No point in cheating is there really lads as it is just a game =]

How do I take part?

Simply create a Career using the rules stated above and your rolling. You can use this thread to ask any questions or to just keep people updated with how you are doing.

Additional Info

There are three other elements to The Pentagon that you can add if you want.

1. Sustainable Management - You keep things financially realistic. Only spending what you have, living within your means, not spending huge, unrealistic amounts. If you want added spice you can try and make a profit on transfers every season.
2. Nationalistic Management - You sign no foreigners. So if you're in Russia you only sign Russians, if you're in Brazil you only sign Brazilians, etc
3. APLA - Anti Premier League Alliance You don't load England in your game. You totally avoid it. Only real men don't load England.
4. To make the challenge a little bit spicy you could even add a "no resign" clause: you can change team only if...
You win the Champions' league
You get sacked
So you can't choose to change team just because you feel it's not good enough for you.
Love pentagons, good luck:D

Shanghai Shenhua appoint Odumosu

Odumosu joins Shanghai Shenhua as they sit 14th place in the 'Super League' table can Odumosu lead his team to Asian Champions League Glory next season it will be a miracle if he does.
Good luck

Shanghai Shenhua without a win in months.... Odumosu can't create a miracle, either this is a disaster

Since Odumosu took over he has played 3 games. Losing two and drawing one.

The squad is absolutely terrible and I just can't wait for this season to finish so I can brandish a completely brand new squad and challenge for the championship so that I can qualify for the Asian Champion League.


After matches and matches Shanghai Shenhua finally win. Two!

Odumosu has spoke out after winning his first two games as manager of Shanghai Shenhua on the trot

"I am happy that we won the game. We had a good start but then became a bit conservative and got caught just before half-time," Odumosu told Sky Sports.

Shanghai Shenhua manager David Odumosu describes his team's 4-0 victory and 4-3 victory as "six very important points."

"It probably wasn't our best performance. We didn't keep the ball like we know we can but showed great determination and we got the six points we deserved.

"We want to be in the Champions League next season or the season after that. I think we showed that in the celebrations after. The fans will go home happy and have the bragging rights at work tomorrow."
