Career One last Magical Experience - Season 10

Recommended Posts

One last Magical Experience 

So having decided to move onto EME with the advent of FMM19, I wanted one last great adventure on OME.

What to choose? Well start with the givens:

  • OME 😎
  • 433 (my favourite “goto” formation) 
  • A Triple-Threat challenge (this flows naturally from 433)

 

For a league and club, I wanted somewhere that I hadn’t managed recently (or ever). While looking around, I realised that I had never managed at this great club and I don’t know how I’d overlooked it for all these years 😯:

  • Bayern Munich
  • [If it was FMM08, I’d take their 3 current strikers Lewandowski, Müller and Wagner on the TT straightaway, but unfortunately they are too old for a TT now 😕]

 

So who to use as my TT strikers? Well I want to also manage their national team, so it seems to come down to a French trio or and Italian trio:

Well having decided on Bayern as my club, the french trio are ruled out because Mbappé is stuck in PSG for a season. So my TT strikers are:

  • The Italian wonderkids Pietro Pellegri, Moise Kean and Andrea Pinamonti 👍
  • [Apologies to the 1Ks currently running with a couple of these guys but a single-nation TT choice is very limited]

Alongside the TT, I’ve got a couple of side shows that I’m aiming for

  • Get at least one of my strikers to 1K (having got so close with Breel Embolo in my Subolo DT)
  • Seeing if there is actually a good player behind those “reds” and “browns” in this other Italian wonderkid:

I hope you enjoy my OME swansong!

Good luck mate !

Should be a good one this. I enjoyed your DT. Best of luck!

Thanks @fRESH and @Rob2017. I hope it’s as much fun as the Subolo DT.

Haven’t been a national manager for a long while now. How do you keep uptodate with the players? Didn’t there use to be an automatic selection that you could use to get the basic squad and tweak from there? (As you can imagine, I only really care about the 3 strikers playing 😉)

Good luck on your final OME adventure mate :D

Pellegri is one hell of a beast (in my career at least, so let's hope for you also) ;) :P

Nice idea, and a great selection of players. Bear in mind that you have to earn the national job during the save and aren’t allowed to start with it! Otherwise you won’t be eligible for the leaderboard! All the best mate

Rats!! That could have been embarrassing 😱

The TT challenge isn’t very clear about this but reading the 1K challenge it is much clearer.

I was just about to post season 1 where I have been manager of both Bayern and Italy. To save re-doing the whole season, do you think I could:

  • Resign as Italy manager
  • Ignore all international goals for now 
  • Then either wait for Italy job in the future (but not immediately after my resignation)
  • Or never manage Italy and conclude the challenge on club goals only

 

Wasn’t what I wanted to hear @Nucleus but I’m actually really glad you mentioned it now. Thanks

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news! 😟 I’m not sure what your best course of action is. I’m tempted to say restart the challenge from the off to be honest! @Ashez might have a better opinion?

You'll have to restart unfortunately as your reputation would have been impacted, sure it doesn't state no ITN from the start however it does state no unlockables which starting as a ITN coach is.

Because it isn’t on the options/unlockables page when you start a new save, I’d forgotten it was an achievement. Live and learn! 😕

I’ll restart the save again tomorrow.

........ and they’d started their international careers so well 😪

Re-doing the transfers was becoming slightly tedious when this happened and made me smile 😁

So not only did I get a huge transfer fee for Lewandowski but I also got a huge sell-on bonus 😎

What tactics and instructions are you using please

Tactics may change as I go on, so it’s probably a little early.

However, if you’ve read the tactics bit in the Subolo DT thread and I say this is a 433 (OME) then you can probably work it out 😉

Season 1 - 2017/2018

So after a false start, here is the first season of my OME swansong TT.

 

Transfers

Season 1 usually sees a huge number of ins and outs, and this career went a little mad in this area😛

Transfers Out

In addition to moving on the existing strikers and other players who wouldn’t fit my plans for the squad, I got some surprise offers for Boateng, Martinez and Thiago. I decided to take the money because in each case it was enough to buy 2 talented youngsters in equivalent positions.

The incomings were predominantly young talent. Christensen was a response to Boateng leaving. Pellegri, Pinamonti and Kean all needed larger fees than I’d expected.

I was not expecting too much in the season-opener......then this happened 😱

In fact this turned out to be our biggest score all season 😎

The German Cup final must have been thrilling to watch! But a win is a win.

And won the league relatively easily in the end. Although lowish goals.

Champions League

A good first round win .... although most of the goals from anyone but the TT trio

I must admit to being pleased when I got the quarter final draw.. Great results over both legs

In the semi final first leg, I was left wondering if that disallowed goal would haunt us

..and sure enough it did as we went out with a whimper on away goals 😕

A raft of injuries gave young D’Amico his first start from the bench towards the end of the season and he definitely took his opportunity to shine

So a domestic double for Bayern and a good TT goal haul. Pleased with that! 👍

For some reason, Real Madrid wouldn’t honour the buy-out clause in the James Rodríguez loan, so I pushed the boat out to get Eriksen as a replacement. Also managed to get Amiri when he was unsettled.

Notice the last player, Tino Gschwender, who was an Academy graduate. His name will come up again later 😉

Also signed my first ever player from Togo  😀 hopefully he will develop into a reliable backup striker. Must admit I probably wouldn’t have signed him if he was from anywhere else.

Favourite Moment

This is my backup goalkeeper

Towards the end of this league game, I needed to rest my TT strikers and ran out of strikers on the bench. So I put Früchtl on up front 😛

So similar season to the first with domestic dominance and failing at the semis in Europe. Still pleased with TT results from a young trio.

Season 3 - 2019/2020

Seemed to have raced through this third season - probably because I did no real transfer wheeler-dealing in the close season. 😯

So a typical season for this challenge. Domestic dominance but coming up short in Europe (just like Pep, so I’m in good company 😜 ). On the TT challenge front, the young Italian trio are getting better and better!

Our Togolese striker proved just too injury prone, so he was moved on during one of his rare non-injured phases 😉

Ended up blasting through 2 season very quickly. So here there are - in a slightly condensed format 😐

Transfers

Goretzka not only ran his contract down but also managed to be injured over both transfer windows so he couldn’t be sold and left on a Bosman 😡

Really upped his game for season 6 and still good for season 7

Pietro Pellegri

Spoiler

Unfortunate short injury (unfortunate because Pinamonti got injured at the same time)

Down slightly on his previous high, but still really prolific

Andrea Pinamonti

Spoiler

As noted above, a small injury at the same time at Pellegri. A longer injury in season 7

Less games and goals in season 7 but still scoring freely

TT Scores

Spoiler

Goals in season 6: 58 + 64 + 51 = 173

Goals in season 7: 44 + 65 + 40 = 149

Goals to-date: 651 + 173 + 149 = 973 😎

 

So 2 more great seasons for Bayern....in fact they are sometimes a bit boring to manage 🤔

But Bayern’s dominance is really helping the Italian trio, so it’s all good in the end!

 

.....and next season will be in a brand new stadium
