Career Rob’s Strikerless Bonanza

Recommended Posts

First off, I’m aware it looks like I have about 347 careers on the go at the moment, but I downloaded FMM on my phone (I usually use my tablet) for the CC as I’m finding it harder and harder to find time to use my tablet with little one around. So I wanted to try a career on my phone and leave my tablet for my Fabled attempt and the forum’s dirty threesome.

As anyone who has seen my posts on here know, I’m a big fan of Strikerless formations. @Foxy‘s one season Strikerless challenge is my favourite and is the basis for this challenge. 

So, basically, I have chosen three attacking midfielders with the aim to get as many goals and assists over the career, whilst also logging what scores I would get for the one season challenge (which only the first season will count towards).

Hopefully I will get a Strikerless Triple Threat (1500 goals) and a Strikerless Double Trouble (1200 goals), albeit I will have to create a challenge and scoreboards myself as they don’t exist. @Foxy has kindly agreed to put any Strikerless score over 500 on his Strikerless 1kc challenge leaderboard even though the barrier isn’t beaten, basically as a ‘Best Attempt’. I will also keep tabs on individual assists too.

It will surprise no one to find out that I have chosen Bayern Munich.

I have used them elsewhere a few times and they have a lot of easy games. Admittedly, there are less games but they are more spread out and easier to keep players fit and playing 90 minutes.

The first player I chose was this man:

A forum favourite, mostly used to support a main striker in a 1kc. I’m hoping he will create and contribute in equimeasure.

I haven’t seen Coman used a huge lot on here.

But he is fantastic at cutting in and banging in the goals. Plus he has done great work on corners for me too. 

The main man is this chap:

Basicslly the Mbappe of attacking midfielders. 

So we have three top quality attacking midfielders, all aged 21, which means I will have 12 or so quality seasons and then it’ll fall away a bit.

FMM on my phone works bloomin’ quick so I will rattle through this. I have two already in the locker, which the first will appear tomorrow.

Wish me luck!

Nice, I always play FMM on my phone. I’ve downloaded it on the tablet but I’ve never opened the app!

All my writing on here’s done on the phone too actually. Essentially what I’m saying is, I never use the tablet 😂

This sounds like a great challenge and I’ll look forward to following this one, I can’t get my strikers to score a whole lot, let alone trying a striker less formation 😂 

you have some great players there and I’m sure this is going to be a great challenge, best of luck. 

I have FMM on both my phone and tablet also but like you my little ones nab it too, so mainly the phone here also.

Ha, I tried a strikerless with Metz; one of my chosen players (Samir Nasri) was injured for 65% of the season. 🙄 Good luck!

You're making me dizzy with all these careers! 😵

I must try the strikerless challenge sometime. I'm more of a 1KC guy, and I'm always selling these greedy bl00dy attacking midfielders that score too much... Must be nice to actually benefit from that!

Man, you are flooding us with careers 😁 but as always expect you to get cracking at this. 

Good luck. I myself have a career which is inspired by one of your recent ones that I will start shortly.

It doesn’t half rattle through a game when played at ‘very fast’ in comparison to my tablet. It is almost like playing at OME speed.

I enjoy the Strikerless a lot more, especially when you include assists as it takes away the annoyance of someone else scoring. Gotta admit mate, I’m getting dizzy too. I’ve got that ‘I feel dizzy’ song in my head now!

Ooohhh, looking forward to seeing that. I do need to crack on with the Fabled one, but my nipper is four months now and it’s getting harder to find time on the tablet.

Thanks. Hopefully I get a bit more luck with injuries. I’ve done ok first two seasons, so fingers crossed for the rest.

Thanks. I’ve opted for Captain Obvious and his two loyal companions as it’ll make it a ton easier, but it could come back to bite me on the bum if they don’t perform.

Good luck mate although with those players and your strikerless talents I'm sure you will smash it.

Season 1

As with any of my careers my transfer wizardry kicked in to action. I wanted to get the main two players in (Coman is already here) so a fair few big names left to raise funds. I also needed to drop slow players and strikers.

91BF12D0-884E-4509-9A08-20BA8C0E9468.thumb.png.8f4bd748fdd726bcffd22a51882ed850.png

(the remaining transfers out were loans)

EC642D72-07F1-4557-B310-38AA4BD1F3D0.thumb.png.97f6bf957220d9f7c0101ed1ed47a356.png

Obviously a fair few youngsters, and I have tried to go German where I can. Arthur and Pavon are the obvious bargains, although I’d also say Tah is always cracking value at 23m.

We won the league comfortably, as you’d expect, but we did draw four and lose one which I would obviously like to eradicate in the future.

C1BF17AD-4BEE-4F56-B7DC-FDC7D1446099.thumb.png.c35054156b7eae501ec9377e8c3fbb24.png

We snared the German Super Cup and FA Cup, but lost in the final of the Champions Cup against Juventus.

We banged in 179 goals in total across the season, with a net spend of £139m to date. 

Attributes-wise, the boys started to look lovely come the end of the season.

Some gorgeous 20s for the boys, with plenty more to come hopefully. Lemar looks to have developed he most.

Goalswise, we did really well.

Asensio averaged over a goal a game. Lemar and Coman put in decent efforts too. 117 goals in total.

When viewed by assists I was surprised to see Thiago break the three boys apart, but that’s part of the collateral damage. 74 assists in total.

It actually got me a score of 356 for @Foxy‘s one season challenge.

Here’s our totals so far.

Thanks - season 2 to follow later!

p.s. Asensio got Best in Europe

Would be nice to write a different name on the board other than Rob 😂 I think for FMM19 I might have to calk it the @Rob2017 one season strikerless challenge.

Great season but I expect that total is going to get better next year.

Interesting fact: This is the first Strikerless challenge I've followed (most of them happened while I was away from Vibe or stuck on FMM 2017). You're my first @Rob2017! With that in mind, I'm not sure what would be considered a good season, but... that's looking pretty damn impressive to me! Am I right?

Season 2

My main target for season 2 and onwards was to basically keep the balling rolling, which is kind of obvious, and minimise squad disruption. 

We only brought two players this season.

8381F6A7-C9E0-40C4-85AF-FF7FBAA2812E.thumb.png.70df50e95b97aabb4676cdaa56455459.png

Verrati offers competition and depth in central midfield, whereas Passlack’s versatility is excellent.

8AD9E05E-0CD8-435B-8BBF-ED9A4D2FFDA5.thumb.png.d2a7c16b77b9802bb7869157a52b86e9.png

Pavon kicked up about being homesick so he had to go. Rajkovic was a tidy profit. The rest were squad players, including Vidal whose attributes and value had dropped immeasurably.

We went through the season successfully, winning the league comfortably.

9F7D85BA-10A1-488B-8E0A-FC0F59B32547.thumb.png.66cdc799541a0f8e8eed971c326d38f9.png

We still drew three games though. 

The boys had a blinder this season. Asensio in particular shone in a couple of the finals.

709BBA60-42B1-42FD-92AA-7D3468B0E3C3.thumb.png.8e4297cbbb32aea2fd7106c934ee08f4.png

Which meant we ended up with a fairly decent season.

And my overall record is looking okay too.

The three lads looked amazing at the end of the season, with 20s all over the shop.

In terms of goals, Asensio led the way with a corker of a season.

35BD69B2-EC17-4D83-B516-BF42C73FA2FA.thumb.png.0ccbab6fae3dfc83ee3084ae125cc85f.png

68 in 53 games.

Coman grabbed 39 goals and led the way with 48 assists. He also grabbed Best in Europe.

And Lemar grabbed 32 goals and a decent 26 assists.

Overall we had a good season which would have smashed the top score in Foxy’s one season challenge if it was the first season.

Season 3 is almost done and no where near as good, so I’m not getting too excited, but it’s going well so far.

Thanks.

Well done. What's your tactic? If you get to the challenge cup final and the challenge is strikerless, you will be the favourite.

Season 3

So, up front, this was a bit of a drop from Season 2. We dominated a lot of games, creating loads of chances, but just didn’t seem to smash the ball in the net. Asensio kept getting the occasional rating of 6. Season 3 is a bit late for the game to figure out my tactic, surely? Who knows. Season 4 will be able to tell me.

45FE913D-44F9-4B89-9CDF-EE53051AA477.thumb.png.551ab7f1b17df9ef85c251a67f2eb8e7.png

A simple bit of transfer business. The offer for Renato was too good to turn down, and Costa and Gnabry were never going to start, especially with Kai Havertz improving and Bailey being able to play in a few roles.

My favourite game of the season was this one:

C1F42539-F6C4-4A6C-B7A9-52995CDDC2B4.thumb.png.d7a9a1b72a4a46a0e1eb754fe37c6479.png

Poor little Plzen got so beaten they lost a vowel.

And Asensio woke up for the Champions Cup Final.

5E9A8F00-A46B-4FE8-AFF3-C69EFA1C873E.thumb.png.1d25222713f90f393288962151deceeb.png

We didn’t win everything though. Dortmund won the German Super Cup and continued to be our bogey team and Mainz FMMed is out of the FA Cup on pens in a game we dominated.

My overall profile looks decent still, although I’ve never been able to master discipline.

49F2F69A-1FBF-4159-9CAE-FCDF9E6AA1CD.thumb.png.2030305342779ba83e2ec8e296f39ef4.png

Like I said, the numbers for this year weren’t as high. Asensio still scored a decent 48, but Lemar was a bit naff. Coman is still racking in the assists.

C58DCE20-D6D4-403A-8E56-967F0025131F.thumb.png.ab1788653025ac5322a79639a6bb3a6c.png

And Coman got Best in Europe again.

Our overall total is still looking great, mind you. 339 goals in 3 seasons, with Coman getting a solid assist number so far.

But the real bonus of starting a new game on FMM that I’ve just downloaded on my mobile is this:

Sugar Daddy has been unlocked. I’ve accepted, but before I crack on with another season, what’s the general view on this? It’s unlocked in the game save, so can I keep it or should I turn it off immediately?

Thanks!

Oh wow, this is going great. That season 2 is crazy! And even though there was dip in season 3, this is still pretty good.

But... I can't believe you are getting assists out of people that I can't in 2018 (like Coman), but ended up selling the one person I could make work (Pavon)! This is eating my confidence away! 😦

If you earned it in the save you can keep it mate.

Cheers mate. That’s good enough for me.

Oh wow, this is going great. That season 2 is crazy! And even though there was dip in season 3, this is still pretty good.

Thanks. Season 3 is still a good season, it’s just 2 was excellent. I’ve got Coman on corners, but he is bloody brilliant for me. Pavon was a moany twat and was always going to be understudy to Coman.

No idea! Hadn’t noticed that. One of those weird glitchy things I guess?

Hmm, this season for me: 28 games, 12 goals, 6 assists... I need to go back to management school I think...
