Career Taff's 1kc attempt


Taff
 Share

Recommended Posts

Hello to all my fellow Vibers and welcome to my attempt at the 1K goal challenge 

Now I know there are a lot of 1K challenges going on, but it's something I've never tried and wanted to give it a go.

I know that Brazil, Portugal and Holland are the go to leagues for these types of challenges but I wanted to see if it's possible in England, a much tougher league but worth a try.

I'm also doing this on the EME and have had a few messages from fellow EME'ers who are looking forward to seeing how we go.

So now onto the team, and I've selected Arsenal as I know the squad (having used them multiple times before) they have a good budget and great facilities so the Gunners are my team

Now as for my player of choice for this challenge I did ask some fellow Vibers for their input but ultimatly I chose one from my list who I'm hoping can come through (and I'm unaware of him being used in anyone else's 1K attempt

Ladies and Gentlemen may i Introduce my 1K striker....

Akpom.png.2963adc2f800199f046429d8f36a53

Chuba Akpom

A young English born Striker who is already a part of the Arsenal set up and one I've only used in the past out of desperation, but can we turn it around and get him to that holly grail of targets.

Here's his stats before the beginning of the season

IMG_6109.thumb.PNG.7c7846251c20037d51e51

Some good stats at the start especially his movment and pace, his shooting is good at 14 as well as technique, stamina and strength.

I'll post results and stats at the end of every season so please stay tuned (and please feel free to comment am I mad for even attempting this challenge in the EPL and with such a undeveloped striker)

Good luck!

Just a tip: it tends to get boring along the way, so just be wary

Good choice, and I want to see how you go. I was wanting to do one in England, but never could get to it. I want to see how you do and then start the journey.

Taff's 1K Attempt

Season 1

So here we are 1st season and let's hope my man Akpom can get off to a decent start 

So firstly our In's and Out's this season and my main areas were my Defence and Midfield and I went big this year

IMG_6140.thumb.PNG.8dc4e6c72b288d88bee60

Spending over £100M but some very big signings to both areas with Stone and Laporte in the heart of my defence and Goretzka and Sanches to improve my midfield

We also got rid of some big names who don't fit into my system

IMG_6141.thumb.PNG.1350157131b8846c48c62

Ozil being the one who stands out but I feel bad keeping someone I don't intend to use and his sale helped me bring in my big names

So onto the league and our first season was going to be a tell tale sign of things to come, and well...

IMG_6131.thumb.PNG.813f81178961d4e45bb53IMG_6133.thumb.PNG.945fbe104757393f40c4d

We win the league in our first season, and with the exception of Man City we were miles away from everyone else 

We also had a good run in the Cups this year

IMG_6125.thumb.PNG.e61f2cdc07e75e25104e4IMG_6129.thumb.PNG.dbf3aebf220298e52e992IMG_6138.thumb.PNG.6c65cd6dd8ece7fb5697bIMG_6139.thumb.PNG.9fbd9c659639e43cd0e12

Winning all domestic cups, but loosing out on penalties to Real Madrid in the Champions Cup finals.

Some end of season awards and stats

IMG_6134.thumb.PNG.a37d2dec5dc398a5dac62IMG_6135.thumb.PNG.ccb3a2042b892350dc4c8IMG_6136.thumb.PNG.257244d2a553228a7ed52IMG_6137.thumb.PNG.13e504e828ed7f929f6ac

So player of the year and a pretty decent season joint top goal scorer in the League

So how did he do all in all, well he had a few Injury issues

IMG_6128.thumb.PNG.870c1b99ce192a68a7e27IMG_6130.thumb.PNG.0d063f3a11cb2acc32b40IMG_6132.thumb.PNG.72a717499a39673d3bb40

 But I think a decent first season

IMG_6143.thumb.PNG.07e261b6046910f98b1b1IMG_6142.thumb.PNG.64e3a7ca396bc6365c0f7

38 goals not bad but needs to improve a lot to get anywhere near the target, but some nice improvements to his stats with 4 more green areas now.

So onto season 2 and hopefully a vast improvement to his goal tally

Solid start, you will of course need more. The formatting could use work, its very hard to read and understand with the pics and stuff not exactly located properly.KIU

Cheers guys and yes a vast improvement is needed but he's young and 38 in the EPL aint to shabby. For those looking at the tactic i did spend a decent amount of time with three tactics over the season my 32221, my 3232 (return of the Taff) and my own 41221 but trying to get Akpom consistent is the key

Honestly my 3232 is great against the big clubs but it requires 2 strikers and Welbeck dents to steal the show and both my 32221 and 41221 are good but not excellent I've tried setting him as the primary attacker but doesn't seem to work that well but maybe it's me

By all means dude there's no harm in trying I would love to believe it's possible but with only 38 in first season it's going to be a very very long road

At the rate he's going at least 40 lol, but I'm not sure the plan was to go as long as needed but is there like a 10 year limit on these sorts of challenges I never thought to look

Taffs 1K Attempt

Season 2

So onto season 2 and after a decent but not spectacular first season can we push our game up a notch and bang in more goals 

Transfers

We made only 2 signings this season in the following two players 

IMG_6157.thumb.PNG.3b0eae89e93a630825b2f

Wallace to give my CD an even stronger presence

IMG_6158.thumb.PNG.ee8d80d6c9a42741f61f0

And Tyrone Mings to give my LB position a very good back up

League

So wining the league in season one I wanted my boys to push again this year and they didn't disappoint

IMG_6148.thumb.PNG.be351404ff9db066b3830IMG_6149.thumb.PNG.6201a1de59791543052b5

A second league title and a very convincing one at that winning by 19 points and my defence and keeper keeping strong to only concede 21 goals 

Cups

We looked to grab a few more cups this year (primarily to get Akpom more games to get more goals) So we grabbed a few more to be safe

IMG_6144.thumb.PNG.058162c76b2a3e49341c0IMG_6147.thumb.PNG.980a3f4a9a18057f9e85dIMG_6150.thumb.PNG.61f93f7259109a4634dcaIMG_6154.thumb.PNG.31313a357de33e8e63adc

Winning all cup competitions this year including the elusive Champions Cup

Season Awards

We grabbed a few season awards this year with Sanchez winning both the WPOTY and and POY awards with my man Akpom runner up, Bellerin coming second in the YPOY and I grab another MOY award 

IMG_6145.thumb.PNG.47c92bdaca2a99e7ad235IMG_6151.thumb.PNG.515b67ad11eec8a4dc8d0IMG_6152.thumb.PNG.fcfd19e57708be0817c4aIMG_6153.thumb.PNG.fc4d7ae919c305f48ec7c

 

Chuba Akpom

And now onto the main man and here's his end of season stats 

IMG_6155.thumb.PNG.dfd9508ff0dbad2e0a7ec

Some improvment especially to his Dribbling

And here's how he did this year

IMG_6156.thumb.PNG.b791af6fdb318b09c6498

So a slight improvement on his tally , but I'm struggling to get a tactic going which helps him score more, I'm two seasons in and still not broke the 100 mark (at this rate this might have to be changed to the 0.5K attempt)

So we still need a vast improvement and may need to make some drastic changes to the tactics to get him going 

Stay tuned

This is killing my dream for.the 1KC in England. But, come on Taff! He'll only get better. Once 60~70 should come up soon and only cinsisiteny is.needed from there.

He's doing better this season the new tactic I'm using seems to be pushing him but we'll have to wait for the end of the season to see

Taffs 1K Attempt 

Season 3

So I decided to try a new tactic this year to try and get Akpom scoring more, the tactic worked very well (If you were using a prime striker could be great) 

Now I know most people wont post the tactic there using but since my other 3 formations are already out there I see no harm in sharing it now

Here it is

IMG_6181.thumb.PNG.7eb2d5c3b77f0b9ea12b6IMG_6180.thumb.PNG.2c2fe8170e747497031e4

A simple 4321 but seemed to be defensively strong and able to produce the goals and pretty solid across the middle (I did change the middle three around some games to CM/DLP/BBM, but found they both work as well as each other)

Transfers

So with this new tactic I needed new blood especially in midfield (so no one is wearing out to fast) so I spend big again this year

IMG_6165.thumb.PNG.4ffd1d456a933800eb439

Oztunali and Diallo (DPL/BBM) were great additions with Sisto to help Chamberlin on the Right W and Ibrahimovic's regen brought in for two reasons 1. as a backup to cover injury 2. so no other bugger would buy him (I can always sell him on for huge profit when needed)

IMG_6166.thumb.PNG.3ac59ec828ffd2bfd809b

Going out Wiltshire and Walcott were too players who were always moaning about play time or training regimes so they went out the door and made a good £50M profit on them

League

So with this new tactic in place let's see how it went in the league

IMG_6170.thumb.PNG.fe91226442993c6a797f7IMG_6171.thumb.PNG.fb52f60875db6440e34abIMG_6176.thumb.PNG.b3796e834afdad62dfd10

It went amazing winning the league with 7 games to go and clearing 100 points thanks to being undefeated again and winning all but 3 games and my GK and defence so strong with only 13 conceded in the league

Cups

Another year and another load of silverwear for the cabinet 

IMG_6159.thumb.PNG.2a77e817510aa32beae28IMG_6160.thumb.PNG.d4ed0d251607244ed9b57IMG_6164.thumb.PNG.d6e5784473f8a5568f0cfIMG_6169.thumb.PNG.22f83a8fc4c1bfb721038IMG_6172.thumb.PNG.241fe6939fa415bbfd542IMG_6177.thumb.PNG.77894e30afbf2daebd35c

We won the lot a fantastic year for the Gunners with everyone producing some great displays 

Season Awards

Another sweep of season awards with Akpom coming 2nd in the WPOTY and 1st in the POTY with Sanchez also in those awards and Bellerin again winning the YPOTY and I grab yet another MOTY (It's good to be me)

IMG_6163.thumb.PNG.30d30fc89ee0d23aa7f82IMG_6173.thumb.PNG.6bdda2bab16860155819bIMG_6174.thumb.PNG.bd87b09a18ae148cee021IMG_6175.thumb.PNG.4bbd834fc5c343ebe45bb

Chuba Akpom

And now the main Event, how did our new tactic work out for my main man.

First his stats

IMG_6178.thumb.PNG.6f7d8f62af66447add7ff

And no real Improvement that I can see but still turning in to a solid option 

And here's how he did this year

IMG_6179.thumb.PNG.815515af3c10582205c9c

Better again this time just shy of the 60 mark (which in the EPL is not a bad thing, but still need vast improvement to get anywhere near what I need from him)

So a better season but I need him better again (Gonna take a short break to play one of my other challenges for now so I don't get to frustrated with this one)

Back soon and stay tuned

We had a solid season, just need a vast improvement up front not sure if changing the CM to an AP will help or just mean they shoot more from Midfield
