Career The Freebie 1k Earnshaw Hat-trick Challenge (season 6)

Recommended Posts

· Posted (edited)

Introduction

Well guys, its been a while. I have made intermittent visits but have mostly had a lot of other things going on. However, i have decided to see off FMM18 with a bang in my return/final career.

The Challenge(s)

Basically, I wanted to do a lower league  career and I wanted to go ahead and add a stipulation from a career I did a few years ago. 

No money spent.

All players would be signed on a free and only after their contract is up, no bosmans.

Secondly i wanted to add a player challenge in there. Well, has anybody done a 1kc starting at the bottom? It is on the list.

Finally, as I plan on scoring many goals with my striker, and I plan on being promoted, I would add one more challenge, one I created myself, the Robert Earnshaw challenge. My striker needs to score hat-tricks in league 2, league 1, the championship, the premier league, the FA cup and for his international side. No small feat.

THE CHALLENGE IS SET

The Team

Being a North-east boy and beginning at the bottom I could only pick one VNN team.

The mighty Spartans shall conquer England! Yet, which young striker will lead the charge?

The Player

Well, lets be honest here. For decent, young, free strikers, which Blyth are able to sign, the pickings are pretty slim.

So, I looked to recently released premier league youngsters. One guy stood out a little; and I mean a little. 

Here he is, fresh off release from Crystal Palace.

Drum rollllllllll

CORIE ANDREWS!

Yeah, I know. Who?

Well here are his stats.

Nothing amazing here, but I am hoping those 9s turn blue soon. Also, 17 pace should allow him plenty of counter attack chances in these lower leagues.

There we are guys. Lets hope this blooming works.

Wow, this is looking tough! I have toyed with the idea of a lower league 1KC, but not sure I'd have started this low. Good luck mate! Will enjoying watching this one a lot!

Season 1

Here is where the challenge begins. I made only 3 signings this year, all free of course.

Corie Andrews, the main man.

I also brought in 2 wingers to support him. Armani Daly for the right wing and Danny Galbraith for the left.

Lets see how the team did in the league.

Well, we won the league as i had hoped but with fewer than 90 points. 108 goals there too, how many did Corie score?

Lets see his end of season attributes first.

Lower numbers as he ended the season with an injury. But did he score?

61 goals is a great start. Excellent goal:game ratio in the cups too.

Good first season

Season 2

After a fantastic first season lets see what season 2 thows up in the air. First, transfers.

Which I forgot to screenshot..... oh well. Lets move onto some big news.

4 months out injured to begin the season.

Lets see how the team did in the league without him.

We made the playoffs with plenty of goals but its probably a good thing we didnt hit promotion immediately as it allows is to get more goals at this lower level.

So with 124 league goals lets see Corie and his goal tally. How many could he come back to get?

Lets see his end of season attributes first.

Some nice attribute imorovement but i am looking for more than a 10 in shooting. How many goals did he bang in though in spite of that injury?

37 is disappointing for the season but very good considering he only had 27 games to score them.

Nearly 100 after two seasons is still a good start.

Goals scored - 98

Season 3

The secons season in the VNL lets hope young Andrews can remain injury free. First off, transfers.

1504409207_Screenshot_20181007-232806_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.247d4e10bd8cd620be792a1f64b8a96f.jpg

As you can see, there were plenty of guys available this season. Obvious names are Walker-Peters from Spurs and Ro-Shaun Williams from Man U. Charles-Cook and Crowe are new keepers, Randall and Smith are instant first team players along with Hamalainen. Finally Egbo and Neal were both youngsters dropped by premier league clubs.

Lets see how the team did in the league

Top playoff spot by finishing in 2nd and won the playoff too with promotion and maximum games available played.

Lets see Corie's end of season attributes first.

His physicals are solid as is his dribbling but that shooting of 10 is worrying at the age of 22. Lets see his goal performance though.

1171355369_Screenshot_20181007-232838_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.625813713cf31c43d08d3cd7d88fcb7d.jpg

Fantastic, 63 goals this year really opens the challenge back up a bit bringing his average goals per season over 50 again.

What a great season. Onto league 2 next year and the first year of the Rob Earnshaw hat-trick challenge in the league.

Season 4

After a fantastic 3rd season the Spartans take to league 2 for the new season.

Here are the new signings for the year.

2031197317_Screenshot_20181008-234008_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.95f10809491d621461c19b8aa194e6cf.jpg

Ariyibi and Harness are new wingers, Muller and Paul are new cb/cm, Dreher is a new midfield playmaker. Matt Macey is a goalie.

So how did this new team do in a newer higher league?

294123451_Screenshot_20181008-233748_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.d0b1aa50cafd32824aa08e6304786351.jpg

Smashed it! Won the league and hit 100 points too. 

How does Mr. Andrews look?

A little better, shooting all the way up to the heady heights of 11! Wowee. How did that translate to goals?

1233410198_Screenshot_20181008-233807_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.cd7af47afaf99e7b7ac024c70029c1f0.jpg

Pretty damn good. He spent a while injured again, but still managed to bang in 55 goals. Champion.

Games played - 166

Goals  - 216

And finally has he made a start on Rob Earnshaw's record?

1096028916_Screenshot_20181008-225236_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.7b97a33a0b0edb6109e4521f1754732f.jpg

Of course, and in total style too.

@kts365 Loving this career mate, tactics wise are you using the classic kts of the flat three midfield with two wingers?

I am. Very attacking with a deep defence. High line just got the team smashed far too often.

Wingbacks are trained on attacking so technically have 4 wingers and 3 advanced playmakers across the middle.

Season 5

After promotion to league 1 the brave Spartans are set to take on the tougher opposition.

Here are the new signings for the year.

1056408912_Screenshot_20181010-080223_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.7581a70fcd831468665e24d7b7485be4.jpg

Minimal signings this year with only CB Platt and CM Chambers brought in.

How did we compete, having not been able to sign many people?

2098569300_Screenshot_20181010-080145_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.303dc74984b312b7290ff62860041700.jpg

Finished 6th with a decent performance in the tougher league. 

How does Mr. Andrews look?

Much the same, I am soooo happy that he has maintained that epic 11 shooting attribute. Could he keep up the goal scoring though?

1837630403_Screenshot_20181010-080058_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.0f715f817423152caf035c6395d20edc.jpg

A little struggle, an injury for a couple of months and 47 goals later and this season doesnt look like a bad one overall, he may struggle with the 1k challenge now but I hold out hope he can improve with better support.

Games played - 211

Goals  - 263

And finally has he kept going at.Rob Earnshaw's record?

Yes he can, great stuff here from the lad, saved by a laaaate penalty.

Season 6

A decent season in league 1 leads us to our second league 1 outing.

Here are the new signings for the year.

344403561_Screenshot_20181011-114635_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.e176aad804e7a8e52722526d7cc0269b.jpg

Adam Phillips is a new backup CM, Corey whelan can play all across the back so is very useful, Marcus Edwards can be slapped onto either wing and finally we have the big news, Blyth original Jarrett Rivers has returned to the club.

Could Rivers' return inspire the team to promotion or even a league win?

1780239942_Screenshot_20181011-114620_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.f351180ee03265e263f1541b98ee620e.jpg

Not quite, we dropped back 2 places from last year, that said it was still decent and we scored 95 goals.

How does Mr. Andrews look?

1425261945_Screenshot_20181011-114542_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.71c7dbc654ea16ce9f22d4abdb711770.jpg

His attributes have seen some small drops bit they're more fluctuation to be honest, could he score though?

1213002085_Screenshot_20181011-114600_FMM2018.thumb.jpg.6803ed030ef9d7bba8d49991dd00e83a.jpg

He did pretty well, netting 51 goals.

Games played - 260

Goals  - 314

And finally has he kept going at Rob Earnshaw's record?

Indeed, FA Cup has been ticked off now.

Thanks mate. 

His lack of heading ability seems to be offset by his pace and dribbling, he gets lots of counterattack goals.

His 11 is doing the job though mate.
