  1. Battling with the Pentagon Challenge

    CantGetEnoughofJelavic' attempt at beating the pentagon
    Hey guys, so after reading a few others' attempts at the incredibly difficult & long Pentagon Challenge - I've decided to test my skills and take it on! Hope you all follow my journey, and I hope to complete it.

    Season 1 - 12/13 - Jomo Cosmos
    - National First Division cup
    - 2nd in National First Division
    (promoted via play-offs)

    Season 2 - 13/14 - Jomo Cosmos
    - Was sitting in 8th (media prediction 15th)
    after leaving with 4 games to go

    Season 2 - 13/14 - Seongnam

  2. I started the save with the following leagues:

    Battling with the Pentagon Challenge-leagues-season-1.png

    I was kind of hoping for a job in either Africa or Asia as I feel that's the two greater places to start, although I felt if a second tier side in Brazil or Uruguay I'd really consider it.

    After applying for all available jobs at the start of the game, I was offered a few jobs in Malaysia, but a lot came from African second tier sides. I looked over all the clubs' media predictions and other information and decided Jomo Cosmos was the best choice. With a strong squad, decent finances, a fine 10k capacity stadium and media prediction of first. I felt I'd be able to get them promoted and try expand my reputation.
    Some club information and finances:

    Next update will be of transfers and some games at the start of the season.

    Comments appreciated! Cheers!

  3. - Just want to apologize for the first two posts being a mess, had it sorted but it all went wrong, photo's wouldn't appear etc. (Will sort first post soon)

    Kicking Off!

    So my pentagon challenge has now officially gotten under-way with the National first division Cup, which is a KO cup that happens before the start of the league season.

    This is how we got on:

    Happy with the win, a competition we should be winning but it is very nice to get some silverware. Won the games confidently also, especially in the final.

    The league also got under-way!

    A fine start, completely equal at the top just need to keep it up

  6. I'll follow you, this sounds interesting as it's something I've never seen before (seriously, I didn't know Pentagon challenges existed, let alone knowing they're famous... This is the first one I follow)!

  7. I will follow this too, Seems really interesting. Never heard of it myself either.
    I might have a go at it too someday.

    Season 1 12/13 - Jomo Cosmos

    So, after winning the National First Division Cup. We could then concentrate on the league.

    Here is the league table and results:

    Battling with the Pentagon Challenge-league-december.png
    Battling with the Pentagon Challenge-results-december.png

    A confident start, just an incredibly weird result against Thanda and one or two draws that should have been 3 points instead. Just need to keep it up and aim for promotion.

    Here is the average ratings of our players so far:

    Battling with the Pentagon Challenge-av.-ratings-december.png

    Stand out performer.

    Battling with the Pentagon Challenge-bamuza-sono.png

    Performed well and pulled the strings for the frontline.

    So overall, a brilliant start. Happy overall but I think we could have done better with the draws and particularly the 3-0 defeat, I wouldn't be surprised if we had another few along the way.

    Jomo Cosmos - Season 1

    3rd update of the first season, I'll probably do 3 a season, but since this is the first season it'll end up being 4. One after August, one at the end of January and a end of season update + Little extras along the way.

    Anyway, we've made a little bit of progress in the South African FA Cup, only playing the preliminary round as of yet.

    Battling with the Pentagon Challenge-sa-fa-prelim.png

    An impressive 3-0 victory over the side that had done the same to me earlier in the season. We've been going strongly in the league but we've struggled over the last 2/3 games.

    Happy with how the league is going though, just need to hope we aren't on the verge of hitting bad form.

    Best performer:
    Battling with the Pentagon Challenge-sidibe.png
    Sidibe has scored a few and uses his pace to frighten defences.

    Average ratings:
    Battling with the Pentagon Challenge-av.-ratings.png

    Also, we added to our squad in the January window. Only with the one player for 65k but looks like he may be a a good signing

    Anyway, see you's all at the end of the season, thanks for reading. Comments appreciated.

    Going well and Sidibe looks as though he should score loads at that level
