Looking good @Taff I think the Q and Z won't fit in this challenge, you should be all done by that stage looking at your figures already, good luck with the C's

Fingers crossed dude

What you should do is use Holland for H and Netherlands for N. Loophole! :laugh:

Fair enough, seems a reasonable way of looking at it, I've watched far too many episodes of Pointless to accept that as an answer! :D

Taff Attempts the "Alphabet/ Nation Lock/ TT

Season C

So after my earlier discussions regarding who to pick for this season I trolled through the Croatia, Czech Republic, Chile and Cameroon, but none of these had three really decent strikers so in the end we headed back to South America and called upon three very talented individuals from 

columbia.png.fe072d9e4d82563a4c536058c350b601.png

COLUMBIA!!!!!!!!!!

And here are my three magic men

Spoiler

IMG_2714.thumb.PNG.ee562ffbb1bc9a33bbee3002eb1367e8.PNG

James Rodriguez, who might not be an striker per say, but hell if those stats don't scream goal scorer

IMG_2715.thumb.PNG.ca86b9ecf481889c406f4af2ec1821b2.PNG

An FMM 17 fav Cordoba has some excellent stats and can be very lethal

IMG_2716.thumb.PNG.03990a03e52f9cd1d7f1deff513983ac.PNG

My fourth choice, but after I couldn't sign Jackson Martinez for less than £60M (he's only valued at like £4.5M) I grabbed this lad and hell if he didn't deliver

So there's my new strike force and this season I decided to make a fresh tactical approach as well to try and maximise the goal scoring opportunities

Spoiler

IMG_2755.thumb.PNG.d43b955c8d95db1c9d1f541309ab4498.PNGIMG_2756.thumb.PNG.5e9ae53d53f8e478a732425f764541db.PNG

Loosely based on my Blitz tactic from the Western Europe Challenge I simply moved the IF's back to make them Wingers, it worked well, obviously very weak at the back but seemed very strong going forward

 Here's my transfer dealings

Spoiler

IMG_2753.thumb.PNG.a84c3115339e56cf8fe6b4f85f42bd6e.PNG

Apart from my three new strikers I brought in Bernardo Silva to help out De Bruyne in the AM role

IMG_2754.thumb.PNG.9b38b632ad3ba2f7b8bcbbbe788d75d5.PNG

Only managed to shift Origi in the summer (and he was a pain in the ass every time we played Arsenal, then Batshuayi left in the winter, no one wanted to sign Lukaku because they couldn't afford his wages (really the guy was immense last season surely one of the big boys wanted him)

So the transfers done and the new tactic in place lets see how the team got on this year

Spoiler

Community Shield

We begin the season as always with the Community Shield 

IMG_2718.thumb.PNG.eff6df0179522341e30cbabf9383955b.PNGIMG_2717.thumb.PNG.3cc25b6e2b06d1d3a164ef956c39fec5.PNG

And Rodriguez begins his City career with hat-trick which clinches the Community Shield once again

Euro Supercup

After last years success in the UCL we face Euro Cup Winners Liverpool in the Euro Supercup

IMG_2719.thumb.PNG.2760107fcce0fc5b579470a21512620a.PNG

Unfortunately we lose out in Extra time, ce sera sera

World Club Championship

We also have the pleasure of competing in the CWC for the first time in what feels like forever

IMG_2730.thumb.PNG.3f2c6fd3e28bedb3a4b53ada8e2ceb79.PNGIMG_2729.thumb.PNG.58672ffbf6fc192811527c28226a3624.PNG

Two of my Columbians secure the title even after having gone down to 9 men

EFL Cup

We reach the EFL cup final for the third straight year, this time we face Chelsea (seriously we played these guys like 8/9 times this season)

IMG_2733.thumb.PNG.0cca8d823982d097ca0648932fb73eaa.PNGIMG_2732.thumb.PNG.ac9a3eb0da10ce486807e817d8310528.PNG

After storming ahead 3-0 at half time we were lucky to scrape the win allowing ex player Aguero 2 changes which he took, but Man City retain the EFL Cup

League

The league didn't quite go to plan this year, with Man U jumping to 1st place 1 point ahead of us with 1 game to go, all we needed was Chelsea to hold them to a draw and we beat Leicester for the title 

IMG_2740.thumb.PNG.1aae0cdc3035a890f0e22d77afe51281.PNG

Chelsea did their part holding United to a 2-2 draw but we couldn't beat Leicester so the title heads to the Red half of Manchester this season 

FA Cup

We also made it to the FA Cup final this year again and would face the Gunners

IMG_2742.thumb.PNG.bec6b45e01feb054819ec9008b70491a.PNGIMG_2741.thumb.PNG.978c4ae013ebb91ab807fa40ddb1953c.PNG

Who must have been firing blanks as we romp to a 3-1 win and retain the FA Cup

UCL

The UCL title in our hands, could we retain it along with the Community Shield, EFL and FA Cups

We are drawn in the group stage along with Real Madrid, Napoli and Trencin

IMG_2727.thumb.PNG.8e31db3d9444efa99d560999746e2c15.PNG

We managed to top the group suffering just the one loss to Napoli

We then progress through the Knockout rounds

Spoiler

IMG_2735.thumb.PNG.f3f99cf4ddbcbceef2bb195660891b92.PNG

Shakhtar are our first opponents, but we manage to win the first leg and draw leg 2 and progress to the quarter finals to face our perpetual opponents Chelsea

IMG_2736.thumb.PNG.f6b59e22b99c33714af9c9d5539432e6.PNG

Once again we win the first leg and hold our adversaries to a draw in the second leg, and now we go on to the semi finals to face Bayern

 IMG_2737.thumb.PNG.5c19a3560bd0a5ceadc4925eef28e270.PNG

Who go down hard losing both legs and now we're in to the UCL Final for the second season and we come face to face with our fellow group E qualifiers Real Madrid

So into the final and we must once again face Real Madrid

IMG_2744.thumb.PNG.128ffd3e7215d4da450ad50a86cf80b2.PNGIMG_2743.thumb.PNG.18fd3dff8418b88ab00b680775af85cd.PNG

And after both teams miss chances it comes down to my substitute midfielder Krychowiak to net the winner 4 minutes into injury time, but I'll take it 

So an up and down season grabbing the three domestic cups, the club world championship and the UCL title, shame about missing out on the league but there you go

Here's the end of season stats for my boys

Spoiler

IMG_2745.thumb.PNG.529cc83f4eb2e835055c9799683f56da.PNG

Rodriguez still a beast 

IMG_2747.thumb.PNG.56eacf02b0c7d1de65e3b870247f92ba.PNG

Cordoba missed a fair bit of time this season and his stats suffered due to so much time on fitness training

IMG_2749.thumb.PNG.fabc922eb925b85f221f87f6a90de57f.PNG

Borja was my star of the season, missed very little time (only when his stamina was low, no injuries) 

But now the important part, how many did my three Colombians score

IMG_2746.thumb.PNG.ff6845e73dfbf4ca0c5d7d0eedd48b76.PNG

Rodriguez end the season with 41, but he missed about a month early on and also needed to be rested along with the others with so many games to play

Spoiler

IMG_2721.thumb.PNG.5c52234c8e3db7ca0b13ff0b2827fb6c.PNG

IMG_2748.thumb.PNG.2a8550379c2782630977f8c7fbc4439d.PNG

Cordoba ends the season with 36, but he missed a lot more time than the others

Spoiler

IMG_2722.thumb.PNG.7bb908c060a60583af9c62ad6464e581.PNGIMG_2734.thumb.PNG.939c41acb6f1b3bf51018a5f6ab4d594.PNG

IMG_2750.thumb.PNG.b2507f4aab03889e4836fb4f58399baf.PNG

Borja was excellent netting 47 goals (yes he played more, but considering he was my 4th choice I'm more than happy) he also excelled when the other two were out at the same time and I switched to a 4411 he started banging the goals in

Rodriguez: 41

Cordoba: 36

Borja: 47

Total: 124

Goals Scored: 347

Goals Remaining: 1153

Alphabet TT Table
Nation Goals
Argentina 117
Belgium 106
Columbia 124

So the Columbians outscoring the Argentinians, but they did use different tactics so it's tough to compare

Here's the boring bits

Once again it's one of my forwards leading the way with the assists

Borja just misses out on the WPOTY

So another good season, but this is defo going to take longer than I thought, but its a fun ride

My next adventure left me with little choice, so @AndersJ you countrymen better do me proud

See you all on the Down Low

Impressive mate, I was unsure how they'd do when I saw them but they more than got the job done! 

Shame about the league but you smashed everything else, keep it up mate.

That's a great tally mate! I like the use of Rodriguez as a striker. I usually limit myself and only play players if they're green in that position.

OK guys need some advice/help

I'm sitting on a big chunk of change here and fancy replacing Joe Hart, out of these below anyone have any recommendations (pretty sure I could afford any of them)

I swear by Bernd Leno so he gets my vote tbh! Solid as a rock

Cheers dude, I've used Leno, Ruli and a few others before just wanted to see what others had to say

It's a fairly obvious one but De Gea is incredible in game. You'd probably still get at least 5 more seasons out of him even at 29. Donnarumma or Dragowski for the future too if you want to get them in early.

My go to keepers are DDG, Oblak, Rulli and Leno, tbh it takes a lot for a keeper to impress me but it's a role I do tend to stay to the same group of players. GK's are so hard to get right for some reason I just like to stay with the ones I trust. 

Karius ain't half bad either tbf
