Woah, massive season mate @Woody! That'll show all the doubters! ;) 

92 goals is fantastic at the best of times, but with a winger? Insane!

Season 3 was my turn. With @Woody setting such a high standard - 92 goals - I knew I knew I had to get someone good in to play as my converted winger. 

Who did I choose?

For a cool £106m this man came aboard. Mr Bailey, who has 19 in dribbling, 18 in pace, 16 in shooting, and 18 in movement. Lowish teamwork too, which would help him pelt a few shots in.

Transfers

I also made a fair few transfers over the season, but only net spent the transfer budget given in that window. One of the big challenges for me is that my formation is quite different to both @Foxy and @Woody, so I had to sign players who I knew they could also use but who would suit me.

Burke went to Inter for £43.5m, with some of the squad players also leaving. I hope I didn’t sell anyone I shouldn’t have.

In came some players to flesh out the squad. Keita came available at £18m, which was a bargain. Vinicius, Rodrygo, Zuchi, and Ackerman are investments that hopefully we can benefit from financially. Sessegnon speaks for himself, although I did loan him for a bit. Oh, and we all love Kai.

I did have to turn down a big offer for one of our star players. I knew if I sold him I would be hunted down.

I also had to turn down a job offer by one of Europe’s big boys thanks to the great efforts of the lads so far.

(p.s. I cancelled the Grimaldo deal about two news posts down out of fear of Woody getting me!)

Season in review

The season started off like a rocket. We won the Portuguese Charity Shield or whatever it translates as, along with destroying Madrid in the Super Cup final.

3D2BA265-9399-4734-BD22-873E34F03E47.thumb.png.8b5a91b789fb8b7e08f9f816a932b529.png

Bailey netted in both finals, grabbing a brace in the second. We then opened up the league campaign by utterly stuffing Portimonense, with Bailey grabbing a hat trick.

By Christmas we were flying. Bailey scored an utter hatful, and we had topped our Champions Cup group, one which admittedly wasn’t the strongest.

Thanks to our resident dripping Woodster we also got to play in the Club World Championship, where Bailey took it upon himself to make sure Racing Club were properly dismantled.

Continuing on our warpath, we reached the League Cup final where Sporting were waiting for us.

And also where Sporting ground out a 1-1 draw before winning in a penalty shootout where Bailey missed our first!

Next around the corner was the first knockout round of the Champions Cup. Inter Milan would be tough competition. The Italian giants are still a strong team.

We won the first leg 3-2 away from home, putting us in an incredible position for the second leg.

Then this happened:

We went out on away goals. 15 shots against their 7. Bailey got a rating of 5 in this game! Utterly robbed. My first thought was that I was gutted to let the Fox down by not delivering him the Super Cup and CWC next season. 

But wait, what’s that... in the most ironic twist of this challenge... who is that who scored Inter’s decisive away goal?

Oliver ‘The’ Burke!

Yep, Woody’s main man, who I sold in the summer as part of the rules of this challenge, came back to bite us firmly in the butt! Unbelievable. Oh, the storylines!!!

My motivation dropped temporarily, but I wanted to finish the season strongly and grab as many goals as possible, as well as do the FA Cup and League double.

The cup came our way, with Bailey grabbing a hat trick. We also won the league, smashing almost four goals a game on average. We still managed to draw six and lose two though.

And our overall managerial record is looking decent for a manager with three personalities.

The Fox and Woodster managed to turn the club in to a European powerhouse in two seasons, which allowed me a great budget and I do feel like I lucked out going third in this and picking up on their excellent work.

Pavon - Assists

We have also agreed to see how many assists we can get with Pavon, as he seems to be performing well for all of us.

104 so far. That’s really good in my book!

Main Challenge Results

But, more importantly, how did Bailey score? Well, pretty well as you would expect seeing some of his escapades in he screenshots above, coupled with the sheer amount of goals we got as a team. He came in with a whopping 95 goals.

That is the most goals I have ever got in one season, yet I’m left gutted to have not got the 100 and to leave the Champions Cup so early . Still, we doing well in this challenge so far and it is good fun. It’ll be interesting which players we end up using in a few rounds.

As always, here are the Fox’s wonderful graphics.

Over to @Foxy - let’s see who he chooses next!

Thanks!

At least that is my excuse sorted for when I score 30 odd goals less then you and @Woody again in season 4 as those 3 games will make all the difference 😂

Not sure if you got FMMed or Burked in the Champions League but who cares 95 goals is an amazing season so great work (y)

I might have to leave this save with you and Woody as you clearly don't need me!

Great work @Rob2017 - that's fantastic stuff. Glad I'm not the only one in the Pavon fan club! And those ex-players... They ALWAYS score against you... 

Now @Foxy, time to put aside your CC career and focus on this one. The other lads need to you to deliver a massive season. Don't let them down! Remember, this is the save that's most important. ;)

Thanks for any complements, but it was much, much easier. I had the best player so far, the best version of our squad, and the most games. @Foxy will destroy the next season, just you see!

Season 4

After mine and Cervi’s very, very average total in season 1 was over shadowed by @Woody and @Rob2017 90+ scores in season 2 and 3 I need to get my finger out so that I provide some meaningful contribution to this save. The squad looks amazing when I take over with world class players in ever position so the target going into the season was 100 goals but to do that I would need my player to hit the ground running and have some luck when it came to injuries. 

I had a long list of possible transfer targets but these were out of my price range as I only had £118m to spend and I wasn’t able to get rid of Leon Bailey as quickly as I wanted. I wanted to get my guys as quickly as possible so he could get learning the striker role as soon as possible so I compromised a little and went for a cheaper option in the shape of Croat Marko Pjaca from Juventus. Annoyingly Juve then used the money I paid for him to help fund signing Bailey from me but hey ho I was pleased with my choice and he is a little less obvious a choice compared to some I looked at.

Transfer

I let a few fringe players go and of course Bailey went as well.

Screenshot_2018-09-07-20-18-49.thumb.png.d4fa53aea58c76d31246e0056ff06887.png 

I had very little to do in terms of bringing players in and the squad was already banging but I did have to bring in Aaron from Espanyol as Tierney got a 6 month injury at the beginning of the season. Timo Werner was a bosman that was arranged by Rob. I used some of the money from selling Bailey to sign Joao Carvalho back to the club to play as a playmaker. He has been sold to Everton by Woody and he had the sense to put a nice sell on clause in so I spent £95m on him but then got £24m back 😀

Competitions

I would have liked to get maximum league points this year as there isn’t any team in Portugal that should be able to touch us but this is FMM and it always likes to screw us over. We lost 1-0 to Sporting with a 90th minute goal doing for our 100% season. The cups were easy peasy so the challenge came in the Champions League but we made the final and then beat Real Madrid 2-1 thanks to two Pjaca goals.

Pjaca

He started the season on fire and hit the 30 goals he needed for this save to continue in 14 games. A couple of stand out moments were these 4 goal hauls.

This was looking like it could be the 100 goal season that I really wanted but remember when I said you need some luck with injuries? Well he got slowed down by a 10 day injury but no big deal just 3 games missed but then the curse of international football hit as he picked up a 3 week injury playing against Belgium and that was going to make the 100 goal total very hard to get.

Spoiler

Screenshot_2018-09-05-21-57-20.thumb.png.b9e6bb82ff1493f84cfd88316245db39.png

In total he missed 8 games through the season due to those injuries which was a real pisser.

Screenshot_2018-09-07-20-16-59.thumb.png.4aa806fff11368ac475e11bf1ab2835f.png

Even so if he had maintained his early season form he would have hit 100 goals as he was at a 2 goals a game rate but of course a slight drop in form is to be expected and that was the case here as he finished the season with the grand total of 90 goals.

Not terrible but it could have been so much better.

Pavon

As Rob mentioned in his season 3 update we are going to see how many assists we can get from Pavon but he had a few injuries of his own this season.

Even with the injuries he had a brilliant season as he became the first player I have ever used that has managed to get an assist a game ratio in a season. It’s a real shame that he missed 17 games other wise we could have been looking at 60 assists for the season.
