Career Pensioners Club in China/England (Season 9)

Recommended Posts

Great job! Winning the EPL must've been a shock to you as well surely. These are very good numbers you're hitting btw, we have to remember these strikers are way past their prime at 34yo. So good stuff. 

Looking forward to seeing how Zaza does.

Thanks. Yes, that was a pleasant shock. My tactics from China days started working once I got the right players. So let's see how European campaign holds up.

Didn’t expect that in your first season at Newcastle. Kudos @Kanegan, your team results in this challenge have been exceptional.

 

Thanks @Aaron55 and @URz. Didn't expect to win the premier league in the 1st season either.

Season 8

Zagadou was not getting match time so he was sold. Others were let go to trim the squad.

Again some much needed reinforcements as we had a lot of retirements, Shelvey in particular who was the heart of our midfield in the last 10 seasons.

Screenshot_2018-11-16-19-34-00-39.thumb.png.b34615b385887788ca05ea3dfe389f2f.png

We won the Community Shield and managed to retain the title again with the fight going down to the wire. We had to endure a very tough second season with us getting eliminated from the Carabao and FA Cup but reaching the semis of Champions League in our first foray was a good achievement.

Zaza was brilliant here, notching up 37 goals en route to picking up the top goalscorer award while our young Portugese midfielder Andreas Pereira supported with 15 assists.

 

Community Shield

Pereira's goal gave us the Community Shield and a good start to the season.

 

Carabao Cup

Screenshot_2018-11-16-09-57-52-31.thumb.png.d1ddceea295a81cae004083fcf97e548.png

A pretty lame way to go out with fucking Southampton of all teams leveling us at 4 goals apiece before edging us out on penalties.

 

FA Cup

Screenshot_2018-11-16-17-09-02-78.thumb.png.03039db9d630989ba360030c33a66d22.png

A lone Lukaku strike was enough to shut us down and we couldn't find an answer.

We qualified from an easy group and Zaza was at it's brilliant best against his former club Roma in the first knockout round. Juventus has been my bogey team in this career and this time as well we just couldn't beat them.

Zaza wins plenty of awards this season while our representation in the Team of the Year increases to four from three last season.

Brilliant, simply brilliant. Zaza nets in 49 from 55, falling agonizingly short of the half century mark. 

 

Update.png.ecbb473bde188819597e51070b944528.png

345/1000 -> 655 to go.

 

So, after that brilliant season from Zaza which has put faith in my move to Premier League, we need a premier hitman so who better than one of the top Premier League hitmans in our realm:

Salah.thumb.png.554ecdc9e74b02ba62e318f928b881d0.pngScreenshot_2018-11-17-11-45-20-94.thumb.png.b08db604c17134d6121ed2c8574d111d.png

And after clearance from @samhardy, we took him in a year long loan as he was not interested in a transfer to a new club.

Looks like Mo has still got some decent speed there, so is Vardy’s record beatable next season?

That would be crazy if he did that though with the league being harder, I doubt it would happen.

Great return from Zaza, expected no less from him tbh. Nice little boost to both your confidence and the challenge numbers 👍 

Bring on the Mo.

Yes, Zaza was right on the money. Now, if Mo could just hold onto his pace, we may well see some pretty good numbers

Season 9

Ok before i go ahead here's the thing i missed in last update:

Some players were sold who were not getting match time alongwith Zaza.

We broke the bank for Paqueta who is a fantastic talent. You all are wondering why Salah has been brought so the thing is just after we finalized the loan, Liverpool released Salah for free and Nice snapped him up. So, we had to go over and buy him for 3mil, doubling the profit for Nice. Ugh!!! 

 

New Stadium

Unlocked my 1st stadium. @Foxy, if you can add this to the leaderboard.

 

Season Performance

Poor poor season. We finish 4th in the league and for the first time in this career, i fail to win a league title. Cup runs also disappointed us while we managed to go one step further in the Champions League by reaching the final.

The draws really hurt us the most as we incur a massive 10 of them while conceding 40 goals, again a lot. Salah continued our trend of being the top goalscorer though he netted 3 less than Zaza last season.

 

Community Shield

Screenshot_2018-11-18-09-55-56-55.thumb.png.ca7d70610827709f30cd9855e48ce120.png

The only trophy we won this season with Salah opening the season with a brace.

 

Carabao Cup

Screenshot_2018-11-19-15-51-11-68.thumb.png.e9106689a6052daa7395ac42c016b4c5.png

Late goals have been a pretty consistent thorn this season as we have not had any answer to them. This time also, Kane's stoppage time goal broke our hearts. In fact, both of Spur's goals came in stoppage time in both the halves.

 

FA Cup

Screenshot_2018-11-19-17-48-26-28.thumb.png.4383d11f8ca7c048b14fa640ce1d4870.png

Pathetic performance. Once again, the Red Devils came to screw us in the FA Cup for the second successive season. We were never in the running to be honest.

We were pretty consistent with red cards with the last three CL games all resulted in a different player being sent off. Also, Woodman, our no.1 goalie chose the fucking CL final to get injured in the entire season and my decision to not buy a goalie came to bite me in my ass as my young second choice goalie couldn't stop any ball from going in and Barcelona won the CL. The top priority next season is to secure a good stopper between the posts.

Plenty of goalscorer awards for Salah but no MOTY for me which was understandable but how come Nottm Forest got the award i have no idea??

After such a dismal season, i needed this. Salah at his mesmerizing best increasing the tally again to 60. So far, in the Premier League, we have seen the goal tally increase year after year so, let's pray that this upward trend continues.

 

 

Update.png.0493e1f6b97515dc226dd248321f39fe.png

405/1000 -> 595 to go.

 

So, we need another great to take us further up. So, next season is the ascent of the Brazilian Batman:

Shame missing out on those trophies, but who cares when Mo launches you a massive leap closer to the finishline. And we expect no different from the Brazilian. Let's go..

Definitely better this way @Kanegan than previous seasons where the teams has won everything but the old guy has failed to deliver. 

Will Vardy’s record survive a season from Mr Ego?

Yes, the move to premier league has certainly paid dividends. Of course, if Mr Ego can keep his injuries in check, we might get another good season.
