Career Rob’s Strikerless Bonanza

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

Weird ain’t it? The thing is, it ain’t like I’ve got him in a role to just create.

Nah not weird... There's something going on. I've consistently had trouble getting assists out of players everyone have no trouble with: Coman, Amiri, Havertz... You name them. So it's something to do with me or my team.

My best guess is that I have too many good players and they have to share the assists around, noone can dominate them. At least that's what I tell myself (the alternative being that I'm just a crap manager)!

3 great seasons so far, keep up the good work ;)

I agree on the shared bit. I guess setting up a team for a 1kc lends itself to getting goals from all sources, whereas mine is more of a goalfest.

My next update will really pee you off!

And just to pee @scratch99 off, here is Season 4

I am going to keep updates relatively simple now. Transfers were nice and basic, with not a lot of movement.

I did get to use my newly acquired investment and grab KDB and De Gea. Neuer’s contract was expiring and he wasn’t signing another.

B950ECCD-4184-4749-8D39-64B4B7CAA258.thumb.png.18ab80451971890238d4c8695900cbda.png

Thiago wasn’t a regular once KDB arrived and was kicking up a lot. Dorsch’s also has an expiring contract.

I had my first injury that missed a few matches. We have been really lucky up until this point.

And we did a clean sweep. As I had to rotate the team a bit more we lost a few league games, which is never good at Bayern.

BD5C3005-131F-4C91-B260-09FA16306BFF.thumb.png.86f36386962725d1fff458913e53ccde.png

I am still useless at discipline. 

Asensio did his usual in the Champions Cup final too.

He got the first goal of seven players.

So, how did the boys do? Lemar was pretty naff last season, but this season he led the way.

With Asensio having another drop in goals. The overall goals for all three was pretty much the same as previous seasons. It’s funny as I’ve kept the same system throughout with the boys playing in the same roles and the same set piece takers. A few teams have applied a tactic that stifles Asensio, but allows the other boys a way in.

Coman got 52 assists and is flying. Wow!

490 goals to date. Asensio leading the way. The Strikerless TT could be on. Coman is wayyyy ahead with the assists.

Thanks!

Another great season and I agree that the strikerless TT could well be on.

If he wants to share with us I'm sure he will at some point but it may be that especially with the CC on he may want to keep it to himself.

Yeah, I was just curious because I can't get any strikerless tactic to work.

I'm not an expert like @Rob2017 but I did a series of articles on strikerless a while back which you can find here.

The fifth season has been completed, with a tiny tweak to the tactics. The boys are 25/26 now so nearing their prime, although I do intend playing them as long as I can. 

Transfers were at a minimum, with Dele joining.

We didn’t do the clean sweep this year, losing to City in away goals (story of my life) on penalties.

We scored plenty in the league.

And have scored plenty overall.

976 in five seasons.

An average of 3.5 goals a game.

So how did the boys do? Coman got Best in Europe AGAIN.

But Asensio got back to smashing the goals in, getting his second highest total. This was our second highest scoring season.

And Coman got his usual tonne of assists.

Overall this is where we are:

Another season done and dusted. Not the best, but we had less games and more injuries. We have been lucky with injuries so far, mind you. 

We won the league and Champions Cup, giving us the full run of fixtures again next season.

C9B90FE1-E767-4F43-A8B8-0CD0A3E695DB.thumb.png.6712424ff04204a8add1d9fa837e84ae.png

We got our highest points total in the league too, only losing and drawing our games towards the end which was frustrating. 

Our best performance was this one:

C3D119FF-71FB-458D-AA94-D72EEFC6AD70.thumb.png.2bab3f0f6b55ccd6edd137e94100869c.png

Madrid played Virgil Van Dijk up front as a defensive forward in both games. Weird. Has anyone else had this?

Transfers were nice and simple.

Arthur grumbled and I couldn’t turn down City’s offer. Sancho joined as he can play in a few roles.

7BAFDEC1-02B9-40D3-9E33-53AF5EBF20FB.thumb.png.97ad50724d5c1ea1d785e3c619f6c04e.png

Overall though, the goals weren’t great because of injuries, especially to Coman.

Although Asensio did keep his good scoring rate.

Asensio looks a certainty to get 500 and get on Foxy’s leaderboard. Coman’s assists should eventually get us fairly high up that scoreboard. A Strikerless TT still looks on. As I’ve said before, I do intend playing this as long as the boys will keep going, so I should have a fair few seasons left.

Thanks.

Lol really, never seen that before! 7-1 against Madrid is an awesome result mate, their manager must of been drinking some hot drinks before the game and got his fowards mixed up with his defence 😂

great season again mate, still room and time to improve and no doubt you will achieve your goals

Thanks. Couldn’t quite get over how naff they were. Them, City, and Dortmund are the main teams that usually pose a threat.

Going great mate! Can't help but get some injuries in a challenge like this, it's all part of the ride... Still a very good season all things considered!

Another season done. Things are set up nicely so it’s easy to rattle through as I’m only really keeping an eye on player conditions. I do need to not be lazy in the big games though as I end up losing if I don’t slightly tweak things.

Had an early season injury to Asensio, who is my most important player. Just three weeks out, but they were three busy weeks.

We strolled through, winning a lot of games by a lot of goals.

Including beating one of our bogey teams in the CL in a bit of a barnstormer.

Before departing the competition in the quarters.

Still, we got a new stadium which I named aptly based on my current situation.

Welcome to the Screaming Baby Stadium everyone!

Transfers were nice and simple.

87E799E1-00A4-48B9-8729-E461D880FDA1.thumb.png.bcd81f862f0b40ce7566b9bd4cbc9fdb.png338FA274-7F09-4937-BEF9-B059F14E0541.thumb.png.6a959b3761dbb0e3e85fb1eeb63e9b9a.png

Sane and Sanchez strengthened the squad.  Sanchez was a resigning.

Asensio had a great season and got Best of Europe, wrestling it off of Coman.

5A584398-EA64-46A7-96A7-09F250BA2205.thumb.png.33645d2a94121b19815e68302859b934.png

Asensio got a brilliant 71 goals in 47 games! Coman got his usual assist per game, ish. Lemar played in Asensio’s position for a few games hence the good goal return.

We smashed the league...

Scoring over four a game, but we lost the Super Cup along with the aforementioned Champs Cup exit.

 Overall we are still looking good.

Asensio is still on for a decent goals total - not far from qualifying on @Foxy‘s leaderboard. He is 28, so that’s, say, five more seasons of 60 goals? That’ll get me near 700. I’m going to need the keep playing in to his forties to get anywhere near the thousand. 😭

Coman’s assists are racking up too. The Fox’s Amiri 595 total is going to be a hard one to get close to, but @Nucleus looks like he is going to blow everyone out of the water with Havertz anyhow.

The Strikerless TT still looks a possibility mind you!
