Career Subolo (Double Trouble) - Season 15 [The End]

Recommended Posts

So having been initially overwhelmed by the Challenge Index like a kid at the pick-and-mix, I have finally decided on a Double Trouble for my first ever Vibe challenge.

Being a late arrival to this challenge for FMM18, I felt obliged to try and choose 2 players that hadn’t been used before (with apologies if they have in fact been used and I’m just blind!).

As a teaser, these are the 2 willing volunteers:

The Beginning

So who are the Double Trouble?

The first is someone that I’ve never had in one of my teams before but I’ve selected him mainly because his name has made me smile when it has appeared in game reports.

The second player will hopefully lead the duo onto great things:

And the club I’ve chosen to manage Subolo in is PSG

  • they have lots of money to allow me to build a strong team
  • the board will allow upgrading to top training/youth facilities
  • you get Mbappe free (0% wages) for a year as a backup striker 😎

 

At the beginning it should all be high optimism but I keep have a nagging doubt about the wisdom of my choices based on what my scouts said:

...but then what do they know!

Good luck. I’d ignore scouts. The game is all about attributes fitting your system, so as long as you play to his strengths he will be a Success.

Season 1

So it’s off to Paris with Breel and Isaac for a spot of Double Trouble. Just 1200 goals to go!

Transfers

PSG have a number of higly valued individuals that I won’t need - other strikers for example. So I added to the already considerable transfer fund by selling the likes of Cavani, DiMaria, Draxler for big money.

Spoiler

At this point a small confession. This season in under-screenshotted and Transfers Out is one of the “missing” ones. 

I then went a little mad assembling a squad that would fit my plans

How did I get Courtois for free you may ask? Well I didn’t really. Neymar is almost impossible to shift and PSG desperately need a good keeper so my solution was a straight swap.

 

The season didn’t start too well with the first injury to one of my duo

C65F25CD-BFF5-4FC1-A75D-88A4286AFDF9.thumb.jpeg.bcf27a2733c1587389565785c2988b3c.jpeg

And then I start to think my scouts might have been right about Isaac Success!

Our run in Europe matched PSG in the real world and this was our high point before crashing out

Another view is that any game when either or both of my duo score is a great game! So the Coupe de la Ligue final was doubly pleasing

The board wanted to win the League and we were struggling behind Monaco

Our defense was solid but we just weren’t scoring enough. Too many draws. Then this unexpected result popped up on my news feed:

This motivated us to end the season strongly and after our final game

I was very pleasanly surprised to see this screen

We had won on goal difference! That mean defense had won us the league.😎

So we ended the season with a typically PSG set of results

So how did the Subolo duo do?

Best Buy

My cheapest transfer and a player who always did a great job this season

Double Trouble results so far

Spoiler

Just 51 + 34 = 85 goals

Given their ages this number of goals / season won’t get me to 1200 before they retire. But I still have faith in them and their stats are improving, so onwards and upwards!

 

Thank you for reading and I’ll finish with something that apeared in my news feed at the end of the season that brought a huge nostalgic smile to my face

Season 2

The season where Isaac Success gets his phone confiscated and trains properly?

Transfers

Transfers Out are mostly the players that were already out on loan when the game started. Wherever possible a Sell On clause was negotiated.

Transfers In are all ones for the future. High hopes for Samuel Maah.

The reaction from the Board was even more judgemental than normal:

Notice that the transfer hadn’t even been completed at this point 🙄  .  Another view on the same player:

Although the pundits weren’t impressed!

Then we went out to local rivals Monaco and our old friend Mbappe

The deadly duo were now starting to click in some games

And we stayed unbeaten in the league until this game in March where we managed to lose somewhat against the run of play.

Only to come up against “super goalie” in the final game and suffer only our second defeat

Not much movement out. Got a good offer for Verratti and my stalwart Sven Bender was getting too old.

Transfers In

Just about the first news item of the new season was this one

0894BA83-4BB9-4419-B8BA-7EFAFCFB4A87.thumb.png.7cd3a0efaa19cee7eecbb21bec05d1c9.png

So an urgent need for a LB/WB. Plus I decided to spend most of my remaining budget on a single outstanding player (winning via the chequebook? 😜 )

After his season-long injury, Grimaldo had lost his place in the team. So when Chelsea came in with a large offer, I took it. Franzini was sadder as I think he’ll make a top goalkeeper but not as quickly as he seems to want.

Domestic Cups

Made hard work of the season-opener

And the same in the Coupe de la Ligue

And then dominated the final (even if not the scoreline)

But back to losing (maybe a little against the run of play?) in the French Cup 😕

League

A largely routine league campaign with too many results like this when we did everything but score

Luckily we did enough 😎

Champions League

Just like in real life, the Champions League has been eluding my PSG team and an unconvincing first round didn’t inspire confidence.

An away goal against Real is always welcome

And then we set down a marker in the return leg (even with young Harry against us)

So off to Amsterdam and Breel does the business

Followed by Isaac in the second leg

Dare we believe? 

In the final against United, Pogba repays all of that huge transfer fee! 😍

Double Trouble Scores

So in our most successful season to-date, how will Breel and Isaac do?

Breel Embolo

Spoiler

Surprisingly, his worse goal return yet!

Similar number of goals as before from Isaac.

And he took the league’s best player award from Breel this year

Double Trouble points

Spoiler

Goals this season = 46 + 42 = 88

Total todate = 291 + 88 = 379

This will be a long, hard slog but for some reason I still have faith in this duo.

 

Highest Rated Player

A player that started as a 16 year old when this save started and has really grown

So PSG finally win the Champions League! It did occur to me whether I would have been given the time to win this competition in my 4th season in real life at PSG. 😉

Season 5 - 2021/2022

So after the highs of last season, will PSG be able to maintain that standard?

The board were certainly happy

Transfers

Transfers Out

Young striker Samuel Maah (he of texting instead of training fame!) was just too good to keep as a reserve striker that I hardly used so when Liverpool bid over £100m for him, I took their hand off!

The annual promotion of Academy players produced a potential gem 😍

And then I spent big money on a midfielder again

Wherever possible I have been inserting sell-on clauses in transfers out and these are starting to pay dividends

Even with my heavy spending on midfielders and potential talent, it is becoming quite difficult to spend all of PSG’s transfer budget - what a strange problem to have!

Champions League

So as reigning champions, our defense of the title ended almost before it had began with a first round defeat 😕

So a strange season to sum up. If I was a PSG fan I’d be down after last year’s highs but in terms of the double trouble attempt it was better than last year! 🤔

Goals to-date: 475 + 124 = 599

 

So we’re nearly on the 100 goals per year average that I had hoped might be possible when this challenge started. Couldn’t be more proud of them. 👏

Also a lesson for me this season. Upto now I’ve been heavily tinkering with the tactics (always around a self-imposed rule of exactly 2 strikers, no more no less) but this season I just had faith and left it. Coincidence?

 

Player(s) of the Season

Spoiler

2 players in my view this season

This one got the awards

I paid a huge transfer fee for Lewis Cook but he has turned into a real monster midfielder. Look at that form!

So probably mine (and PSGs) best season to date 😎

Someone’s got their hands in the till at PSG! 😡

Not a season update but a short post about a couple of transfer bugs.

So in the summer window these were the Ins and Outs

Which left PSG with these finances

Then in January, there were no further Ins but many Outs

Exactly the same transfer and wage budget as before 😱

 

The second problem I think I’ve seen before and relates to part-exchanges. The news feed mentions the wrong player leaving or even no player!

Don’t know who Frank Bliznichenko is?? I transferred L. Sanchez

And this time P. Farfan becomes nobody.

Season 7 - 2023/2024

Transfers

Having given away all of my transfers in/outs in my previous post about the finance bugs, I’ll now explain the rationale behind such large outgoings.

At the beginning of the season, the coaching staff ranked my deadly duo only 2nd and 5th in their rankings of the club’s strikers 😯6E06C622-703E-4964-8E60-21F5B475BDA9.thumb.png.e5c7549ae3eb6325852489de285b2086.png

While I don’t always follow the coaches, the fact is that the others had also been showing up my duo whenever they had played. So I either lock them up in the reserves or sell them off and let them flourish elsewhere. At this point I decided to do the latter and then I gave myself the additional challenge of balancing the books with my transfer dealings over the course of this challenge. So over the 2 transfer windows, PSG sold lots of really talented strikers for huge sums.

The other outgoings were players who were starting to get too old to keep their places and Arthur who just never seemed to manage 90 minutes!

A great season opener for a change

But no awards....because Breel stole them 😜

 

Double-Trouble Challenge

Spoiler

Goals this season: 71 + 55 = 126 

Goals to-date: 599 + 126 = 725 😎

So the deadly duo’s best goal haul to date.

 

So another one of those mixed seasons. The PSG fans probably see this as an “nearly but no cigar” season but from the point-of-view of the Double-Trouble challenge it was a resounding success. Making Breel and Isaac the undisputed top strikers at the club seems to have fired them up.😎

It’s an OME tactic with 2 strikers and if I’m brutally honest with myself it is not a magic tactic. The results are probably just as much to do with the squad of players I’ve managed to assemble using PSG’s huge budget and their training, etc. Another factor is  the huge rotation I’ve been doing with everyone except Breel and Isaac to ensure a fully fit team every match (notice the low number of games in any player stats I’ve posted).

@ian77 have you seen this by @Ashez and @Foxy ?  Now this does look like a magic tactic!

Transfers Out

After 5 glorious years at PSG, Paul Pogba is looking for a move. As he’s the wrong side of 30 now, this offer from Chelsea was a good one5DC9675D-2F45-447E-8079-71C691331BC8.thumb.png.d98784145f2d77a4ee6b11f0f824cbf5.png

The only other major outgoing was a “too good to refuse” offer from Real Madrid

And after a largely fogettable campaign, we scraped past Chelsea on penalties in the final. I was worried Pogba would come back to haunt us but luckily he didn’t. Credit to Courtois for saving the vital penaly against his old club. 😎

The guy I swapped for Neymar right at the beginning is still doing the business and looking good for the remaining 4 years on his contract

Finance/Transfer Bug Revisited

So this bug with the finances where I don’t see any credit for any sales is starting to annoy me way more than it should 🙄 

Whatever I’ve tried so far hasn’t fixed it

  • I thought a new season might sort it out, but no
  • In previous versions of FMM I seem to remember the board taking any excess transfer funds when they decided on your allocation for the year. That doesn’t seem to happen in FMM18
  • I have tried moving the transfer fund into wages over a season end and then back. This hasn’t fixed it and has just left me with a bigger pot.

 So this is the seemingly envious position is PSG’s finances

And I have come up with an off-the-wall solution to effectively give away £1b 😜

A169E04F-2B91-4E3C-B8F0-67C803B215E7.thumb.png.7b21fab7a320179f1b886d533457f73b.png

I signed 5 old, journeyman players (who would accept one year contracts) for £200m each😱

And *touch wood*, this seems to have fixed the problem and player sales seem to be getting credited again.

 

Well that was all very weird but now I can get back to the challenge .... one billion pounds poorer! 😜
