Gary Speed Tribute Challenge.

  1. Gary Speed Tribute Challenge.

    A tribute to a Welshman with a vision. Gary Speed a true cult hero for many, a legend for some, one to be remembered for all. As a salute to Gary Speed's dedication to the welsh national team I've devised a challenge for people to try to emulate and surpass Gary's vision. Bring Glory to Wales, start with the foundations, a solid youth team. So, I thought that I'd make a spin off from the San Marino Challenge. This one requires a little less dedication, since Swansea are already in the Prem, and Cardiff are in the Championship. However, The main aspect to this Challenge is to harvest young welsh talent and turn the national side into a contender. Now, Let's all think for a moment about the Barca team, That is a perfect example of home grown talent. Emulate that and bring pride to Wales!

      Sam arrives, to be met by 21 girls, they circle him, and then start a chant of 'Sam has a Mangina, Sam has a Mangina!' for a hour.
      Sam returns home, a broken man, and finds comfort in playing fifa with his mates, who also all, coincidently, have manginas.

    Alright, I may sound as a retard, but are you only allowed to buy Welsh players, or are you just "encouraged" to do so?

  9. Yup, It's the Fahrenheit skin, > Fahrenheit - Skin for FM12

    You don't have to do that if you don't want, You need to establish the club first and improve their youth facils, to do that you need a squad worthy of winning cups and leagues etc. Establish a competitive club however you may. You just get the multiplier if your club has 70% make up of welshies.

    Simpley put: Buy whoever you want, doesn't have to be welsh.
