Career Zé Road To 1500 Goals. A 1.5kc

Posted by
  • Level 12 L12

Intro

After the disasterpiece that was my deletion of my FC United save I have decided to just go for it and have a pop at the 1k without Brazil this year.

The Team

I wanted to pick a reasonably easy league so I went for Portugal, and the team?

benfica-014.thumb.jpg.0429cddddd64a8eaa4bba2ff674055b7.jpg

Good old benfica of course. With a decent squad and some very good youngsters there was no question of the team choice.

The Player

After a quick survey of the team I decided to use a player already in the squad. It's pretty obvious from my challenge title who that is.

(I really hope that is a pic of him)

Screenshot_20170222-100814.thumb.png.3b7a0f6bee8bf21dd38c08f62edd5b0d.png

Now his starting stats are nothing too special bit he is 17 and at Benfica so I'm sure he has a ton of potential. 

Fingers crossed for me and young master Gomes please guys.

Yeah. I'd already started when I saw this too. Is it against any rules? We're using very different tactics.

Not at all, just pointing it out :). 

Usually in this situation I'd PM the other member and make sure it's fine with him etc.

Season 1

The journey begins and I attempt to improve the squad in support of our young striker.

Transfers

This is something I always forget to screenshot in season 1 for some reason. However I'll list the players

Player.       Pos.   Team.      Price

Jefferson - FB - sporting -   1.8m

Palmieri -   FB - Santos -      4.0m

I then ploughed the rest of the money into the wage budget. 

Competitions

Supertaça 

We face Braga in this career opener in the Portuguese super cup.

Screenshot_20170225-222631.thumb.png.0961581603c738fe5302d6553a5538c7.png

We win pretty comfortably but with no goals for our young front man. A bittersweet start.

Next up is the league cup, of which we made the final to face Braga again.

Screenshot_20170225-222611.thumb.png.591dcfda77b1cf54a6c35b451015b566.png

A dominant affair in which we had 10 men for most of the second half but we win the league cup in spite of that.

Next is the taça de Portugal 

Screenshot_20170225-222550.thumb.png.146ea648636bc3e201ce2fe1cc170e6b.png

A pretty comfortable win against surprising finalists Varzim.

So now we will see how we did in the league, could we complete this domestic treble? 

Screenshot_20170225-222638.thumb.png.b6ff90d45a6ee072b5c117a3156ae8a5.png

Of course! We went undefeated the entire league campaign. Not loads of goals there however.

Finally how did our champions league campaign go? Firstly there was a group stage we would expect to get through being that we and Dortmund are clearly a cut above Kyiv and Kobenhavn.

Screenshot_20170225-222512.thumb.png.817791deba9757fe49a29ef65a221b46.png

So we get through as runners up. We continue on and hit a quarter final match up with sevilla. Our home leg was a 1-1 draw with the opposition picking up a vital away goal.

Screenshot_20170225-222443.thumb.png.6f7467e92d4d817ddeb2fd6105e2c85c.png

But in the second leg we withstand the sevilla barrage and Gomes scores the only goal of the game to send us through to the semi-finals. We face Lyon.

In the first leg we win 1-0 getting the away goal in a cagey affair.

Screenshot_20170225-222436.thumb.png.1b696dd37bef35405a36db662ae25671.png

The home leg goes much better and we see them off with a 4-1 aggregate scoreline. To the final and the mighty Real Madrid.

Screenshot_20170225-222427.thumb.png.e9b714b58bb729f9d79f319e5ae49f56.png

We faired pretty well holding the 1-0 lead off a 3rd minute strike from Gomes until the 92nd minute. Then an extra time penalty puts us down and a very late Morata goal rubs salt in the open wound. We were 1 minute away from winning it all in season 1. So frustrating.

The Player 

Anyway its not all about the cups. It's about young Gomes. You've seen he's scored some important goals but how did he fair in general. First his end of season attributes.

Screenshot_20170225-223329.thumb.png.41c963edc20bb882332461ba2527b879.png

Still nothing amazing just yet but he has improved in key areas, especially physically. He did however keep saying he was slightly tired, I rest players who show this message as their form often falls. This reduced his game time a little but let's see his stats.

Screenshot_20170225-222732.thumb.png.30f28d343191f80827558a31c0604924.png

A great first season for the young gun with 45 goals in 48 games. He looks to be on the right track so early on. He also won his first award.

Screenshot_20170225-213636.thumb.png.2952f399eeeff7efb3733ab5a2e8b86b.png

So that was season 1 guys. A long way to go. Let's hope we continue in this vein though and that Mr Gomes improves quickly.

Basically the tactic I used last year for the grey player 2k.

I have switched it up a little in season 2 to attacking with short passing and not having him as the primary attacker. Just fiddling around really.

I'm 5 seasons in my own Benfica career and Gomes is now mature enough to take Jimenez's place up front. He'll be my main striker in season 6 onwards and altho he doesn't have a page filled with greens he's got them where he needs 'em (he's an AF/P in my formation compared to a TM in yours) he's always been very consistent coming off the bench and providing the goals. Jimenez is 29/30 and the plan was to bring Gomes 1-2 seasons from now but due to his fine consistency I'm bringing him earlier.

You picked a quality guy. Goodluck!

Jimenez is great. If gomes hasn't scored then Jimenez will almost certainly do it from the bench for me. I agree Gomes isn't really target man material but it's been working well, with the new instructions I'm going to try a spell with him as a poacher and see what happens. 

Glad he's good in the future and thanks.

Season 2

After a good start, the journey to 1k continues as we look to retain all of our titles and gain all first champions league title this year too.

Transfers

Screenshot_20170228-141207.thumb.png.8f4268f5b95a629e9988c8def24fa0fe.png

This year I brought in mostly young or squad players. However, lucks Lima was brought in to be a first team advanced playmaker and in also promoted 1 youth prospect who we will look at later.

Competitions

Supertaça. We played the runners up from the Cup final Varzim. 

Screenshot_20170228-141720.thumb.png.705116fc55a1d7916780824cd351b0e9.png

A good warm up game vs weak opposition and a trophy immediately. 

League cup

Screenshot_20170228-141346.thumb.png.467da85307863ef5d29de12dadab73e8.png

We dropped out to Porto in the semi's. A little disappointing. 

Taça de Portugal. Again we face Porto in the final.

Screenshot_20170228-141250.thumb.png.d0f3801290fe745129b28ae6f78fd9b9.png

And avenge the league cup loss with a dominating performance despite being a man down early into the second half.

The league. Can we manage a second league title in as many years?

Screenshot_20170228-110715.thumb.png.edbecce42c0babfcccdcf4869bf2aa9b.png

Indeed we can. And we are undefeated yet again. However, it's a pretty low goal tally again this year. 

Finally the champions league. The group phase threw up man city, CSKA Moscow and Legia Warsaw. 

Screenshot_20170228-141356.thumb.png.878a01fd692500aabdc66d600920c973.png

With 2 draws against City and wins elsewhere we go through as runners up once more to face AC Milan. 

Screenshot_20170228-141338.thumb.png.96b40f0eafebee7707735701f46a9fe9.png

1-0 up in the home leg we avoided the away goal whilst dominating play.

Screenshot_20170228-141332.thumb.png.1b281d4247bcd263dfe5ba5b6b879d7f.png

The second leg we lose but get that important away goal which sends us through to face Sevilla.

Screenshot_20170228-141320.thumb.png.f557c70cde90fbd5f93bd654e59e2648.png

We smash them 4-1 at home making us confident for the second leg.

Screenshot_20170228-141314.thumb.png.baf04e54117d4f90d484ee0ceb5f5b0d.png

The second leg is only a 1-1 draw but we sail on through to the semi-finals where we will face Man United.

Screenshot_20170228-141305.thumb.png.af72e7b9bfd3e95a9a5eb6b78258ed48.png

With a little luck, we get the early penalty and hold on to that 1 goal lead despite being down to 10 men. Could we hold on in the away tie?

Screenshot_20170228-141258.thumb.png.8e6ffb04f94b92fc900b912f9e0bd598.png

Yes, we do, with 2 away goals we made it almost impossible for the opposition to knock us out, on to the final, will we meet Madrid again?

Yes, but Atletico this time.

It was a draw and went to extra time and then penalties.

Screenshot_20170228-141047.thumb.png.0f2258276d05a14b4dd0673049e179a5.png

We lost 6 to 7. Darn, how can we very so close 2years in a row and not win, damn Spaniards. 

The Player 

So let us again look at Mr Gomes and see how his attributes have improved.

Screenshot_20170228-141142.thumb.png.a9daa3868aabc736b67fb06ecf2dc207.png

He is physically becoming rather beastly as well as increases in key areas and a couple of greens showing up. How did this translate to on pitch performance?

Screenshot_20170228-141124.thumb.png.c258382ca95eb424492a3875bd5fd613.png

53 goals in 56 games! Champion. Similar to last year but he got to play more games as he was tired less often.

Screenshot_20170228-110633.thumb.png.9056898b32bbe661c493c25accbbe0ce.png

He also got player of the year for the second year in a row. Can he challenge for the ballon d'or next season?

So finally let's look at that youth prospect I mentioned earlier after 1 season of intensive training.

Screenshot_20170228-141215.thumb.png.f90659acd25ed6c0f2f3297ecac04ac5.png

Not bad. He's looking like a decent prospect with good all around stats and will likely make a good wingback in the future.

So that's year 2, let's see if we can keep the improvement going.

Scored - 98

Same as I posted above but with him as poacher instead of target man and the mentality set to attacking and passing to short.

Season 3

The first two seasons were very good, this year we hope to continue this. 

Transfers 

Screenshot_20170304-221406.thumb.png.c5915d184e57db9ff8555ca7e467663c.png

We brought in a few players for.the future this year. Ochs appears to be Lahms regen and Jackson appears to be John Terry's. You may notice we spent a lot of money this year. Well we sold a few players to make funds.

Screenshot_20170304-221430.thumb.png.f6b8fbafec4ff4a973a5cd3870ee39ae.png

Grimaldo was a hard one to sell but for £62million I'd sell my own mother. The other players sold were just unhappy squad players.

Competitions

Let's see how well we can do this year in all competitions.

The Supertaça threw up a meeting with our nemeses Porto.

Screenshot_20170304-221253.thumb.png.0b48f7da7931e98b10dcd493f7a7be70.png

It was a tight affair but we took the cup on penalties.

Next up is the league cup. Of which we made the final again this year to face Porto again. 

Screenshot_20170304-221152.thumb.png.0d0f6e09007e1d1f73da7d5187385f4c.png

And another win on penalties to show our "domination".

The Taça de Portugal is up next and is another final we made. To face Feirense, a match we should win.

Screenshot_20170304-221126.thumb.png.eca18630db9ecdcb48e54e55a33e9c94.png

And so we did with a brace from our main man

Now we go to the league which we hope to win after being undefeated for the previous 2 years.

Screenshot_20170304-221323.thumb.png.e3e7f0ee1c33485031cb543da680c3bc.png

And we smash the league with ease. However, we lost the first league game of my managerial tenure here. The culprits? Porto. Damn them!

So we finish the season roundup as always with the champions league. The group stage threw up some decent teams with group favourites Real Madrid there and also Dortmund and Anderlecht. This would not need easy.

Screenshot_20170304-221237.thumb.png.1437aabff1be315fa2c1e1c3f747ee62.png

Except it was. We smashed the group drawing only one game. This sent us through to the knockout phase where we faced the German juggernaut, Bayern Munich. A tough prospect.

Screenshot_20170304-221145.thumb.png.b4a61bfc0563ea61b85e0c0ac7391a08.png

The first leg proved this as we dropped 2-1 to them. We did get that important away goal though.....

Screenshot_20170304-221135.thumb.png.5f4545a12cf4e6f2ad15a9348157ca07.png

Which ultimately proved moot as we couldn't withstand the opposition in the second leg either and this marks the first year we don't make the final.

Also I had a tough decisions this year as I got this offer.

Screenshot_20170303-191050.thumb.png.1e0a8a899f28772a8ada2e9d7d650bea.png

Now that is some serious money to build a team right there but it was really at the wrong time. I'd want Gomes to be early-mid twenties at youngest before a  move to a bigger league. Also it was in February so I'd have to wait until the summer to sign him. I ultimately turned it down.

The Player 

A mixed bag this year. But what did this mean for our top man? Well first we see his attributes. 

Screenshot_20170304-221334.thumb.png.43b6511f7371667dc6956b894ed0215d.png

This screenshot was taken as.he was injured but as you can see he's really building in the right areas with greens in his movement, decisionso and shooting being very positive signs for his future. Did this increase translate to goals on the field?

Screenshot_20170304-221344.thumb.png.5aa47059e558bb5cf42da9225562989e.png

Yes it did. His best year yet despite playing fewer games than ever. 59 Goals in 45 games is great and pushes his overall tally above the 1:1 ratio too. He's got all the makings of a top striker for sure. Also he won Portuguese player of the year once more..... oh and this...

Screenshot_20170301-214730.thumb.png.2efa3f88635ec82da185acaa0595aca5.png

World player of the year at 19 is amazing and in amazing lesser league to boot.

So that's season 3 down. It's looking better and better. Let's hope we can get 70+ goals next year.

Scored - 157

Grimaldo, Santos and Lindelof are still in my starting 11 (season 7). Lindelof is one of those guys that doesn't have amazing greens but is extremely consistent.

59 goals is a good number for season 3. Next campaign 60+ please :)

Grimaldo was an absolute star for me but the cash allowed me to make some good signings. Lindelof was a player I used as a utility man but he was very unhappy so I sent him on his way. Santos never really got a look in as my AM are wingers and there were better than him in the squad.  He was too good to be rotting in the reserves so he was sold too. 

Definitely want over 60 next year and hopefully over 70.

Season 4

Season 3 was the best yet for our man and I was hoping season 4 would continue the upward trend of goals amd this year's target is 70 goals. 

Transfers 

This year I could see very few places where we could improve however with a lot of money available I saw an opportunity to bring an all round player for my midfield.

Screenshot_20170314-113625.thumb.png.250a8bc8ab79a5be591544d7e5537d43.png

Renato Sanchez has returned to Portugal to wreak havoc as part of the champions' midfield trio. £55m may seem a lot but it bought this player.

Screenshot_20170314-113605.thumb.png.ddfbc74daf5dabaeebee401b02db0682.png

As you can see he's great for my midfield being able to play deep lying or advanced playmaker roles which I utilise. 

There was also a slew of youth talent this year who may improve dramatically.

Competitions

So with only one player purchased this year let's see how we did this season.

We begin with the Supertaça and we face Feirense.

Screenshot_20170314-114122.thumb.png.5eee797eb0670f8f525d955f1d1c1d42.png

A reasonably easy 2-0 scoreline brings another Supertaça to Benfica. Next up is the league cup

Screenshot_20170314-114113.thumb.png.a29dc0d27d2383b6a3e957cfb2eb8440.png

We were knocked out in the semi's with an awful penalty shootouts performance so we miss out on the league cup this year. We now have the Taça de Portugal. We face minnows Real in the final.

Screenshot_20170314-114024.thumb.png.7faa452d85914c4515693c20e58e8c06.png

The match goes as expected and we smash them 6-0 thanks to hat tricks from both Gomes and Zivkovic.

Now for the league. Did we once again retain our title? 

Screenshot_20170314-113959.thumb.png.c4f09dbd4f0ecfa199884064222e984a.png

We again win the league with only 1 defeat amd 3 draws.

Finally we get to our champions league run this year.

I totally forgot to screenshot the group stage so it is a good job we got through it to the first knockout round to face premier league big shots Chelsea.

Screenshot_20170314-114104.thumb.png.cf0b2e3191fc982c76a2759077406075.png

We dominated the away leg but our lead was taken away from us sickeningly in the 95th minute with an own goal too no less. But still we have that away goal. So what happened in our home leg?

Screenshot_20170314-114059.thumb.png.32e7138290ba570e68be22ea3ab26ad0.png

We once again dominated the game and won 3-1 with an own goal going the other way this time out.

Next up is the quarter final. We face AC Milan again this year who will be looking to avenge our past victory over them.

Screenshot_20170314-114053.thumb.png.ceb98e1f40961c316ace3a0756acad5e.png

We again dominate the away leg but only come away with one goal for our troubles. How did the second leg go though?

Screenshot_20170314-114048.thumb.png.258ea423a206300f8e712d997e9380b7.png

We smashed the Italian club 3-0 to secure our semi final place. We face former kings of English football Liverpool.

Screenshot_20170314-114034.thumb.png.4a8e8022df2fa7fb216cb9e952436246.png

The first leg is a mixed bag as we lose the match but score 2 away goals to take into the second leg.

Screenshot_20170314-114040.thumb.png.fcc154c89b5ffe4a06d34d8231f2b340.png

The second leg was very competitive and we only lost on aggregate due to a very late equaliser from Roberto Firmino. This reminds me of those first two seasons where we lost out in the finals due to late goals.

So we still go without a champions league title. However let's see how our man did this year

The Player 

So to the main part of our challenge getting Ze Gomes as many goals as possible. First off though he developed pretty well this year with his attributes increasing in the right areas.

Screenshot_20170314-114006.thumb.png.15ac439dacae95532a48e348f99009dc.png

It's nice to see his shooting getting up towards the 20 I would like and again he has greens in all the right places.

But how did that translate to goals on the pitch this year?

Screenshot_20170314-114014.thumb.png.50d6977e3aa7607713718b064790e15b.png

He once again scored steadily throughout the year and due to the increased number of games he played he managed to pick up 64 goals. Not quite the 70 I wanted but a nice increase nonetheless. He also scored some international goals but I'm not the Portugal manager so I can't claim them. Still we are almost a quarter of the way to our target and our player is only 21 years old.

He also once again picked up the Portuguese player of the year.

Screenshot_20170314-110524.thumb.png.1bd82626d602e24ab0fb3d7423b4c735.png

Aaaand 

Screenshot_20170314-110619.thumb.png.fe02baed0c128db0b6556ac813268912.png

His second successive ballon d'or. 

A very successful season once again.  Now let's hope for 70+ goals next year and onwards.

Scored - 221

4 Seasons and 221 goals and he is still 21! That is impressive! It's hard to get 60+ goals with the portuguese league because of the lack of games, but you're managing it quite well! It can only get better from here! That European Cup should have gone to you though... next season maybe? Keep up the good work.

Great progress here, KTS, and hope you get Sanches to play well for you on EME. I failed to make him shine.

Keeping smashing it with Ze.

Thanks man.  That European cup really needs to come my way at some point. Been too close already.

Hey Taff. Thanks for the support. Gomes is coming along very nicely.

Sanches is doing a decent job for me in midfield. I've noticed he doesn't get a ton of assists but always has a very high passing % and he is often the guy who passes to a winger who then makes an assist. All in all he's been solid but his stats look nothing special.

Season 5

Season 4 was a smashing success on the goal front so lets hope season 5 will be even better.

Transfers 

With Jardel hitting 35 this year, Lisandro Lopes becoming a pain by not liking any training regimen, other centre halves not working out or ready to be first team players we really needed a top central defender.

We also brought in a few free players in and picked up Mahrez on a Bosman. Score!

Spoiler

Except Mahrez kept getting injured and was not happy with training so I sold him in january.

£40million profit. Very nice.

Competitions

The supertaca is up first and we face Real again after destroying them last year in the cup final.

Screenshot_20170317-200402.thumb.png.76ec4254e4bb0d3687adfc9f82b48eb8.png

Comprehensive domination led to a 3-0 lead.

Next up is the league cup where we face Porto in the final.

Screenshot_20170317-200325.thumb.png.5f5b1344a932babef46aad7c9c0e6b43.png

We dominated but the game still went to penalties and we won after 9 penalties a piece.

This brings us to the Taca de portugal. We once again hit the final and face Porto once more. 

Screenshot_20170317-200151.thumb.png.ba9e52fd3b9e7bbbb5f65f50e984de8a.png

So all the cups down, how did we do in the league?

Screenshot_20170317-220426.thumb.png.6fd239cf3f0ac6ed05803a8ccb79e658.png

We of course win again but can quite go undefeated losing to Arouca of all teams.

And we finish the domestic treble/quadruple.

This now brings us to the champions league campaign. Would this year be our year?

We begin with the group phase we draw Chelsea, Dinamo Kyiv and Mlada Boleslav.

Screenshot_20170317-200346.thumb.png.7825c1d282d20ec509b9e24914e011b1.png

We finish the group as leaders sending us to what should be an easier first knockout round tie........ Except we draw Man City...... this won't be easy.

Screenshot_20170317-200307.thumb.png.a84d180c98a44edbee76251d5c689b9b.png

And it proved true as we lose the first leg but luckily pick up the away goal. On to the second leg.

Screenshot_20170317-200237.thumb.png.8b9af695814f5e46f5305c84f9e16ce1.png

Yes! That away goal proved vital as it sends us through to the quarter finals. We face Bayern............ are you kidding me?

Screenshot_20170317-200221.thumb.png.fba586e78bec9fedec38a6b82c8a41f4.png

Shockingly we take the first leg 2-0. We go into the second leg with a distinct advantage.

Screenshot_20170317-200210.thumb.png.b8191a8d0dca39f792df100cb2fa5703.png

And it pays off as we draw in the second leg and move onto the semis to face........... Juventus. Now come on! This is getting ridiculous.

Screenshot_20170317-200203.thumb.png.74bda392bf9058099a1c531df76ecfac.png

We take the first leg 1-0 in a very even game which could have gone either way this was going to make the second leg very tense.

Tense is exactly what it proved to be remaining 0-0 until the 89th minute when Juve equalised the aggregate score.

Screenshot_20170317-200158.thumb.png.b6b1a49ecb1f15942b646f119b08460f.png

Only for Andre Horta to break the hearts of the home fans by scoring the winning goal in the 4th minute of stoppage time sending us to the final once more! We face Real Madrid. Could we finally win the elusive Champions league title.

Gomes scored the first goal of the game on the 50th minute. We were ahead as the game reached its final 10 minutes.

BALE EQUALISES 84 minutes in.

The game was 1-1 at the 90th minute forcing both tired teams into extra time. Could either team secure the win before 120 minutes? 

No! It all comes down to a penalty shootout.

Screenshot_20170317-200136.thumb.png.bc8225f26cc357fd5668b8bde6a04e29.png

The Madrid keeper amazingly saves 3 penalties in a row and almost single handedly hands his team the title. We still can't win this trophy.

What a run of games though. 

The Player 

With such a fantastic season under our belt how did it reflect on our man Gomes? Well first up my coaches believe he has already reached his peak, so lets see those attributes.

Screenshot_20170317-220736.thumb.png.b9d015044c9ede8189899e207a97437e.png

Well he's pretty much the same player he was last year but hey that isn't a bad thing as his attributes are great in all the right areas. How didnthis translate to goals though.

Well first off he had one exceptional game this year.

Screenshot_20170315-210752.thumb.png.4fe4060dc8e3c17c80e550d37313a449.png

Yes, the opposition were sub-par but he scored a double hat-trick and almost made it 7 goals if not for a missed penalty. More games like this please. 

So, how many goals did he score?

Screenshot_20170317-200548.thumb.png.e9088b2ff1436a68cd21dbf010a01198.png

64 goals again and in 51 games. Consistent high quality here. Hopefully he can build on that tally as he moves into his mid 20s. He also picked up 

Screenshot_20170317-170659.thumb.png.7f70c0839e09ea59ce9c2ade021ec4aa.png

Portuguese player of the year.

Screenshot_20170317-221546.thumb.png.7075116ac50986e8e3d98027ac91e29c.png

And a his ballon d'or hat trick. The kid is on fire. We blitz past the quarter point of the challenge and he has so many years left. 

Played - 252

Scored - 285

Goals to go - 715

So.......mini nightmare guys. I didn't save after the champions league and accidentally loaded earlier data to get a couple of missing screenshots for this thread. In doing so the autosave covered the post champions league data. Thus I had to play the match again.

Screenshot_20170317-223009.thumb.png.9e68695314578f4f58aeaeb23ba3a916.png

Gomes didn't score this time but we won the title. I will count his new tally of 63 goals. I will not count the title win.

Played - 252

Scored - 284

Goals to go - 716

Great going once again dude, shame about the UCL but good things come to those who wait

I'm currently using SLB and I'm having the same issue with Lopez where he (and Grimaldo) don't like any of the Training regimes I put them on it's so annoying

It is annoying. Reuben semedo is a fantastic replacement though. And I replaced grimaldo with cancelo who was WPOTY  runner up this year.

I manages to grab a fantastic CD on a free transfer and replaced Grimaldo with two very decent LB's so I'll see how they do
