The Gary Speed Tribute Challenge

  1. The 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!

    We've taken many suggestions from last season and the main one seems to be managers wanting to add the Welsh Premier league into the fold. We are very keen to do this and it is in the works - so if you want to manger Bangor City or TNS go ahead and post on here as part of the challenge and we will eventually add your points onto the chart.

    We haven't fully decided on a point scale for the Welsh leagues yet. We are up for suggestions if you want to throw a few at us.

    Obviously winning the Welsh Cup would remain the same points total. Winning the WPL would probably be about the same tally as winning the League 2. Around 15 or something. You qualifying for group stages of the CL would increase slightly as it is harder for the welsh teams to battle through the 3 rounds of qualifying.

    But throw some numbers out there that are reasonable and we can discuss the possibility of implementing that into the challenge.

  5. A start! New team inspired by Andy's run last year.
