The Fortnight Challenge gives you two weeks to handle the scenario I give to you, scoring points for achieving goals. Each week the points will be tallied and the manager of the round declared. I hope you want to join and give it a crack, whether beginner or someone who knows the addiction ratings by heart ;)

Rules (Read before Entering)

1. You must choose the setup I give to you each fortnight, to the letter or your entry will be discounted
2. You have one day after the scenario is set, to post a screenshot of your game status, in order to make sure there are no database changes. If you post the screen you are committing to the challenge
3. Only 12 saves per season, as reality does not allow you to rewind ;)
4. You have two weeks after the start of the challenge to post all the screenshots I will ask of you.
5. No database changes
6. If you get a great goal upload it to youtube and post the link in the thread. This'll put you up for goal of the fortnight ;) The winner of this competition will be decided by the winner of the challenge

Hope you like the idea and if you do partake, enjoy :)

For every win over Manchester United- 5 Pts

When you’re done I’ll need these screenies for proof, not that I don’t trust you ;)
