Career Pensioners Club in China/England (Season 7)

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone and welcome to a brand new career from me.

Now, for my first career in 2019, i wanted it to be:

1. Probably 30 season long or atleast 20 as i have only one career i went that far.

2. An easy league to get myself in groove for the new game

3. A challenge which is tough but at the same time enjoyable.

 

So, with these in mind, here is the challenge i chose:

 

And, here is the league,

League.png.b63e8a89a81d7e28a5f936c71b35933b.png

Mainly due to the fact that i had spent around 5 years in China, so i have an emotional connect and from what i have heard and also during my test games, the league is relatively easy and the club who gave me the chance:

1463121004_ClubLogo.png.a36390bd87452a22e576356c86ac175f.png

SHANDONG LUNENG

So, i need to hit around 40 a season to finish it in 25 and 50 a season wraps this up in 20.

So, even though the challenge states i can move to any club but i have set a personal challenge of not being able to leave the club until and unless i win all the Championships on offer including Club World Championship.

And the veteran who would lead us in the first season:

Hope the new training AI in FMM19 is better at keeping older players going for you to choose from.

Those who have followed my career knows that i do not make any wholesale changes. So, apart from Ibra, I picked up Ndong on free, a young Gabonese midfielder who would slot in nicely as my BBM.

So, we win the double in my first year of charge and we were ecstatic. Our GA was quite high though and i would like to rectify that going forward.

Ibra was on fire hitting 33 goals in 30 matches in the league while Tardelli, the 33 year old Argentinean, who played his last season with Shandong as he refused a contract extension, became the assist king in the league with 16.

Still green in aerials at 37 year old, Ibra is phenomenal. 45 from 38 is a great return in 1st season.

Yup, Adebayor was picked as he matches the tactic of lone TM upfront that i am employing so hopefully he gets firing too. The Chinese league is decent with all teams employing golden oldies and it leads to lot of goals. The only drawback is that we are conceding too much as the quality of local players are pathetic. Hopefully, my training will make them better players in the future.

Season 2

Forgot to take the transfers screen but Israeli Eran Zahavi from rival club Fuli and Daniel Amartey from Leicester were brought in alongwith Adebayor .

We win the league for the second year in a row and also go on to win the AFC Champions League as well as the season opening Super Cup. So two more trophies ticked off, though we fail to retain the CFA Cup but surprised ourselves by reaching the finals of the Club World Championship.

Adebayor led the league in both goals and assists showing the complete player that he is. He scored 12 goals lower than Ibra though in the league.

It is, the teams are all in similar levels which makes it hard to succeed and to give your youngsters valuable game time.

Yes,  all teams are similar in terms of abilities but I wouldn't call it hard. With right foreign players, you can dominate though buying players is a chore either due to their unwillingness to come to China or the work permits

Loving the updates and career so far. Not a bad total at all from oldie #2, but think Rooney's going to hit 40+, maybe even beat Zlatan. 

Really cool those players are willing to play in China.

Rooney has started pretty slow hitting only 17 from 27 matches. 🤞 he ups his game in the second half of the season.

Once again forgot the transfers screen but Ramadan Sobhi was picked up from Stoke and Andre Ayew was picked in addition to Rooney as i stuck with my existing squad. Adebayor retired after the season ending his career with a double.
