@Taff Just caught up on this one mate - looks like a promising start! His stats look great for his age and I'm sure you'll be getting 40/50 next season. Looking forward to seeing how you get on dude

Thomas Buitink and the Road to 1K

Season 3

So after a decent first two season for our young Dutchman, this season I wanted him to show me what he could do up front alone, so I reset the tactic to one I used during my Barbosa 1K (I think it's the same scrolled through the thread and no sign of it and I'm hoping this is roughly it)

So as always first off we hit the transfer market

Only three players in this year, Emre Can being the best of the bunch and for less than £15M I think thats a bargain for a CM who in my opinion is as good as Pogba, then Vogt is a good CB/CM option and Munir as a backup GK

Nothing but free agents leaving this year, mostly B team and graduates with one of my young CM's going out on loan

So with new blood pumped into the team we set off on another season

Spoiler

Domestic

We begin once again with the Dutch Supercup, and once again we face Ajax

And a brace from Buitink sinks Ajax dreams and we claim our 3rd Dutch Supercup

We cruise the league winning with 8 games remaining and being undefeated at that point

IMG_4205.thumb.PNG.b47195302c85596211953e94da4d8e36.PNG

And we remain undefeated for the whole season racking up a good amount of points and goals and conceding only 18 goals for the season

de Jong comes in and smashes 3 past Feyenoord to claim the Dutch cup for PSV in a thrilling 4-1 win

Europe

We start the year in the UCL group stages coming up against SLB, A. Madrid and Dinamo

IMG_4191.thumb.PNG.b9e3e2d4b3fb3c275b46b17a0e74a55c.PNG

We progress top of the group after winning 4 out of 6 and drawing a game against both SLB and A. Madrid

We then move on to the knockout round where our first opponents are Gelsenkirchen 

IMG_4194.thumb.PNG.8a1760d2a8a7199d4868fb8909124654.PNG

A great 2-0 win away sets up a good home leg, where a single de Jong goal clinches the tie and PSV move on to the quarter finals with a 3-0 agg score, next up Spanish Giants Barcelona

IMG_4198.thumb.PNG.e9d7b2ff559b25e8a1d6bb7b44d3128e.PNG

And we somehow manage to win both legs 3-2 at home and 2-1 away seeing us into the semi finals where we face Man City

IMG_4202.thumb.PNG.389cff72878abe09c64dec66d08e3f56.PNG

And once again we prove a force to be rekoned with winning both legs 2-0 and PSV are going to the UCL final to face the other Spanish giants Real Madrid

IMG_4209.thumb.PNG.5d1f0410b04de98de8d56eaabc07c5d0.PNGIMG_4208.thumb.PNG.4d558d55c41c86bafad7e5d0ce29b281.PNG

And a single late goal from my ever impressive RW Risse is enough and PSV (who have taken on and beaten all three of the Spanish Giants this year) are crowned UCL Champions

So what a year, our third domestic treble and the UCL Title as well

But the big question is how did Buitink do on his own

IMG_4210.thumb.PNG.513af8277eb1b55dc6b0034ea72138ff.PNG

His stats are really starting to look impressive and still only 18 years old,

IMG_4211.thumb.PNG.7951aa4ad5bf9d3db6d208f0a1fe7292.PNG

33 from 44 games, so around the same as last season and we still haven't broken the 100 mark yet and this is becoming a bit of a worry, but still early days

Thomas Buitink

Games Played: 130

Goals Scored: 99

Goals Remaining:  901

Here's hoping next season goes a little better, hell if he could break 40 I'd be happy, but I don't want to put too much pressure on him at this young age, so we'll wait and see

Here's the rest of the season Info

Team Stats

IMG_4212.thumb.PNG.0dd394cc9f10f7ded2609cbd63314a59.PNG

Buitink by far and away our top scorer but 19 from de Jong and most coming when we really needed him and my young AM Ramselaar is proving to be a huge asset to the team

IMG_4213.thumb.PNG.1ab2b85feb42a319889376989b03be39.PNG

Santos on the LW providing the bulk of the assists this year, but Buitink getting 11 means I need to make him more selfish

Buitink and Ramselaar claim the top 2 spots in the Dutch YPOTY

IMG_4203.thumb.PNG.f03bba46f152ebca537a14b64f631720.PNG

This Time Buitink and Santos are 1st and 2nd in the Dutch POTY

IMG_4204.thumb.PNG.f61810c64433ccef420ecb448475461c.PNG

And it's a 3rd MOTY for moi

So another so so season, but these early years were always going to be tough, just hope a tweek or two in the tactic will improve his tally next year

Till then I'll catch you all on the flip side

Being at the 100 mark in your 4th season as a pro, that's awesome. Take this as a W en push him more once he reaches 20 :)

Nice job

Another good year Taff, Can is a great signing for the price. Buitnik is still going strong, I'm sure you'll get him to bang in +40 next year!

Just caught up Taff and it's been great to read, really makes me want to start a 1k challenge but I'm useless with tactics and will be probably get about 400 goals.

 

Keep up the good work mate. (y)

You never know dude, I failed 2 attempts before finally nailing it with Barbosa last year, and I'm still on less than 100 after three seasons, so its going to be a long road yet

Cheers for the comments lads, as you know they are really appreciated

I'm certain he will kick on from now, he's had 3 seasons of extremely valuable experience playing in and around the best!

Prediction? Ahh only 48 this year 😜 Step it up a notch Taffman!
