The multi-task challenge

This is a new challenge I have created that I will be trying out and updating you on. Please feel free to comment any suggestions you have which you think would improve it!

First you take charge of a team from each division in the English league (i.e one from the premier league, one from the championship, one from League 1 etc.) In my save I will be taking charge of Everton, Leeds, Mk dons and Fleetwood town. Try not to take charge of a team predicted to come 1st, as you want to make it challenging!

After this you then have 10 seasons to try and get all 4 teams into the top division. Not as easy as it sounds! Feel free to create affiliations between each teams and loan players between them.

I hope you enjoy this challenge, and if you have a go post your results below.


(P.s. if your teams are drawn against each other you can manage both at the same time)

You can if you want but I feel personally that having more than 4 teams is too much. Ive just chosen to have the top 4 leagues.

Wouldn't 1 season be the equivalent of 4 seasons? Will take a very long time but I might give it a go :)

The pre-season fixtures have ended! And went solidly for all teams. The first competitive match however did not go as smoothly..

Results:

Everton-

Everton 2 Preston 0
Everton 3 Glenavon 0
Everton 3 Columbus 0
Everton 3 San Jose 1
Everton 0 Vancouver 0
Everton 1 Philadelphia 0

Leeds-

Leeds 1 Lyon 0
Leeds 2 Fc Twente 2
Leeds 0 Coventry 1
Leeds 4 Hereford 0
Leeds 3 Crewe 0
Leeds 3 Barnet 0

Mk Dons-

Mk Dons 1 Fc United 0
Mk Dons 2 Cambridge 0
Mk Dons 4 Mansfield 1
Mk Dons 1 Woking 0

Fleetwood-

Fleetwood 2 Bangor 1
Fleetwood 2 North Ferriby 1
Fleetwood 2 Crewe 2
Fleetwood 1 Blackburn 0

Capital One Cup 1st round results:

Leeds 1 Rochdale 1 3-5 pen (An incredible flukey result which had me wondering how we did not win. We had 31 shots, they had 4. The only thing that could be improved is our shooting accuracy!)

Mk Dons 1 Gillingham 0 (A good solid start to our competitive fixtures with us controlling the game from start to finish, need to improve our discipline as we had 4 yellows and 1 red card)

Fleetwood 0 Carlisle 3 (With two of the goals occuring in the last 5 minutes and a goal disallowed for us this result is not a true representation of the game. We even had the same amount of shots as Carlisle, and the only indication of the league gap is there shooting accuracy compared to ours)

Completed transfers will be uploaded shortly

I personally haven't found it to be much longer as I tend to do the tactics for each team similairly so don't spend 4 times as long on the tactics. The only factor that makes it longer is that you have to do all the matches.

As unlikely as this probably is, what happens if 2 of your teams are drawn against each other? :p

Just to confirm, you add four managers or is there some way to add four clubs to one manager? May seem stupid at first

You can manage both teams at the same time if they are playing each other I think?

You add a manager and then it gives you the option to add new manager, you cant manage all the 4 teams with the same manager.

After you have enough board confidence it gives you the option of choosing your parent/feeder club
