Career NucleusNT completes the John Charles/ 1K Challenge

Recommended Posts

Edit: This Challenge has now been turned into a 1KC :celebrate:

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages..I bring to you my attempt at the John Charles challenge. For those of you unfamiliar with it, here’s the link...

Yeah, so basically I have to find a player who is a natural CB, convert him into a striker, and score more than 385 goals with him. Easy right? :unamused:

Player Reveal

So I decided on four attributes that I think will be vital in order to complete this challenge.

  • Pace
  • Movement
  • Shooting
  • Aerial

As aerial comes naturally to most CB’s, I searched for players with a minimum of 10 in the other three attributes and someone who I think can be converted to play as the big man up top. My search has brought my attention to a certain Norwegian CB from the Scottish Premier...

Kristoffer Ajer, my new John Charles. Decent all around attributes, hopefully after some attacking training he will be a wonderful striker. As he’s currently at Celtic I decided to start with them also, because..why not.

Stay tuned for the first update, hopefully out in the next day or so :celebrate:

Season 1

Ok so I enjoyed this season so much o have an update quicker than planned!

Transfers

Just the three incoming transfers, I felt I could slowly build the squad seeing as I’m Celtic and winning the league is a given

Those two big outgoing transfers happened at the end of the season, they were both a big part of the team but I couldn’t turn down that sort of money for the pair

Yeah...easy

A domestic treble this season. We crashed out of the Europa league knockout rounds to Benfica after finishing third in a tough Champions league game.

Season history

Start of season....

So as you can see he’s a natural CB. When retraining him as a striker he was showing limited aptitude, but I persevered and to be fair to him he never complained.

End of season...

One season down and he’s now an accomplished striker, fantastic. Now let’s have a look at his stats for this year

I couldn’t have asked for much better! 41 goals! Next season should only get better now that he’s a nice shade of green in the striker position.

Goals scored - 41/385

Very lucky in getting him retrained in less than a season! :P It took me about 4 years to get Paterson retrained, and he was yellow as a striker at the start!

Good choice of player though and an excellent start. Looking forward to following this one.

I know! I would have been happy if he was any colour in the position at the end of he season, to be a shade of green is brilliant. Thanks mate (y)

Could I say you've won this challenge before you even started? Yes, very fortunate he's already green in the ST position but you picked the player so credit to you. Considering that it's the best imaginable start (y)

What did it actually say? Poor? Very poor? The fact that you've transformed a CB into a natural striker in roughly a year's time is just mind-blowing.

Maybe your staff (multiple attacking coaches) and experienced/veteran forward players in the squad your re-training player can learn from added to his successful transformation.

I’ve only got the one attacking coach. The others are general,defensive and fitness. My manager one is also general. Dembele was the only other striker, plus a lad on loan from PSG who was there at the start of the save

He did it, just over a years time and we have successfully converted our CB into a striker. Don’t ask me how, I have no idea.

few new faces this season, half of these arriving in January mind.

An easy win in the Betfred Cup but we get FM’d in the Scottish cup semi finals.

Lovely greens all over the board and a fantastic season to show for it also, 48 goals this time, hoping to break the 50 mark next year.

Few new faces coming in to replace the stars that left. Most notably, Kieran Tierney going to Liverpool for £50m. Huge loss, but he wanted bigger things and I couldn’t turn down that sort of money, that money would save the whole challlenge later on in the year. More on that later.

Robbed in the Betfred cup, a victory in the Scottish cup and a semi final thrashing in the Europa league. Not too bad a season, could’ve been better.

A fantastic season, we smash the 50 goal mark and it should have been so much more! Midway through the season he decided he wanted a bigger challenge and would not budge on a new contract. That’s where that £50m came in handy. It allowed me to tweak the wage budget so I could offer him around £80k in wages which he gladly accepted, the dip in form for about two months was horrible to watch however.

Total goals - 142/385

Im not sure how long this challenge can go on. I’ve noticed that I only loaded Scotland as a playable league, so if he does move on to bigger things, I’m not sure how I can bring him back. I just pray to the FM gods that he has a change of heart 

Thanks for reading :celebrate:

What kind of super player have you created ffs, he can defend, pass the ball, provide assists, score a goal, you have transformed him into the complete player :D 

Perhaps lacking pace is the only negative but at 22yo it's still possible to see this too bump to green levels within a couple years. He's the perfect player for the Ironman Challenge I created years ago that no one's ever attempted lol. But looking at this career I think it might have inspired a few souls to take the "impossible" on so I may rewrite and repost that challenge later this week for the very very ambitious among us ;)

Keep going, great job!

Not much in the market this season, just strengthening positions I thought needed it.

We suffered 3 losses this season. Two of them coming against Rangers, to be honest our form was up and down all year.

Cups

We beat Rangers In the final of the Betfred cup but they avenge that defeat on penalties in the semi final of the Scottish cup

Europe

Knocked out by Arsenal in the first knockout stage of the Champions league. European glory evades us once again.

His attributes look awesome. His form this season however was patchy. Only 32 goals to add to his tally, he had a few niggly injuries this season also which did not help matters. Hoping he can kick on next season, good news is that he hasn’t complained about wanting to leave this year.

Total goals scored - 174/385

A Kylian Mbappé goal in the second leg sees us drop out in the quarter finals in a game we really should have won.

Kristoffer Ajer

A change of tactic was needed after last seasons slump. I also decided he needed to keep more fresh, so I took him off after 60 minutes or so in each game but started him in every game possible. It paid off....

BFBE3DE7-78D5-4EC2-9CDC-847D4F6C26D6.thumb.png.f08d5c493f7e3122d4444ceed4c59ca4.png

He breaks the 60 goal mark this time around to get the challenge back on track. Fantastic work from him. I really don’t know how some people are scoring a 100+ goals a season this year. It truly baffles me

Total goals scored - 236/385
