The Pentagon Challenge – Football Manager

the-u-s-pentagon

For people that haven’t heard of the pentagon challenge, it is in my opinion, the hardest Football Manager challenge out there.

What is the pentagon challenge?

To attempt the challenge, you must start a new save unemployed with a Sunday league reputation.
Your aim is 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 have won all five continental champions leagues, you have cemented your status as a FM God.

We’d love to hear how your attempts at this go! Tweet us @dictatethegame with your results!!

The David And Goliath Challenge – Football Manager

Goliath was a biblical warrior defeated by young David in the Book of Samuel. Goliath was described as ‘six cubits and a span’ (9 ft 9 inches or 2.97 metres). 
The phrase ‘David and Goliath’ has taken on a popular meaning, denoting a underdog situation. A contest where a smaller, weaker opponent faces a much bigger, stronger adversary. 

460x402
Your challenge is to take a weaker/smaller opponent from a city with a bigger/stronger opponent, and try to surpass them.

For example, you could start in the lower leagues of Spain with Real S.D. Alcala and try and remove Real Madrid from their reign.

Or you could try your luck in the lower leagues of Germany and try conquer Munich with SPVGG Unterhaching.

We all love seeing PSG get beaten, so maybe a flight to Paris could be worth it, joining up with Paris FC in a quest to dethrone PSG.

Portugal is a country I haven’t really ventured into on FM, but you could attempt to dismantle Benfica and Sporting CP with someone like 1° Dezembro

To complete the challenge you need to ;

–  Beat the Goliath team at least once
–  Finish higher in the league than them
–  Produce better youth players
–  Win more titles than they have

As always, we’d love to hear how you get on with this challenge! So tweet us screenshots @dictatethegame

The Sir Alex Ferguson Challenge – Football Manager

maxresdefault.jpg

In this challenge, you’ll have to imitate the life of one of the renowned managers that ever managed a football club in the modern era.

Same as Man United named Sir Alex Ferguson as their manager when they were almost at the bottom of the table, you’ll have to take over a club that is also in the relegation zone!

By this I mean the following; run Football Manager 2018 till November 6th and take over a club that is in the 19th spot on that exact date and replicate what the great Scott did with the Reds. Your aim is to win 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cups and two Champion Leagues.

This challenge seems like an easy task, but you probably won’t get a big club like United, but that makes the challenge so much more interesting! Oh and why that exact date, because United appointed Sir Alex on the exact date in 1986!

As always, we’d love to keep up with your progress, so tweet us screenshots @dictatethegame!
