Career Pellegri Strikes Back in the BPL -Final Update (1.5K done)

Recommended Posts

Hello vibe members,

I've been lurking around the vibe since fmh 2017, but never posted anything and just enjoyed reading the various careers and challenges you guys shared. This time around, I felt like trying it out, i.e. sharing careers and the (hopefully) various challenges I'm going to try out on FMM 19. 

As you might've guessed from the title, the first ever challenge (posted I mean) I'm going to take is the 1KC challenge.

I have been ever aware that the league of choice and club I'm choosing can be hard for a 1KC challenge, but being my favorite club, there's no other choice for my maiden career (again..that is posted) in the vibe, which is:

220px-Manchester_United_FC_crest_svg.png.ed7e02f94f1844d52a5ceb6f7e92a120.png

THE RED DEVILS

Next up is the player of choice to take on the 1KC challenge (as if you don't know it by now):

Pietro Pellegri. Pretty sure everyone in vibe already knows the guy. I've seen a lot of careers in the 18 version where he takes center stage and is keen to try him out in my challenge.

1st Season was done yesterday, and here's how it went:

Unfortunately, being the klutz that I am, I've missed the transfers screenshot for the 1st season:

but here's who left, and who came in:

OUT - Romero(4.1m), Valencia(4m) Smalling(10m) Fellaini (11.25m) Jones (9m) (and no not Gethin) Darmian(3m), Young(5.5m) Olosunde(600k), Rojo(5m) Herrera(15m) Lingard(20m) Mata(29.5) Darmian went off in January as I did not manage to sell him off in the summer transfer window for 3m. Total = 119.95m

IN - Gavin Bazunu(375k), Dayot Upamecano(25.5m), Harry Maguire(33m), Gian-Luca Itter(22m), Gedson Fernandes(35m), Raoul Bellanova(8.75m), Pol Lirola(20m), Antonio Marin(11.5m), Pietro Pellegri (40m), Abel Ruiz (5.25m) and Lucas Paqueta came in January for 42m (He didn't want to even discuss contracts with me in the summer window) together with Matthijs De Ligt who came in for 22.5m. Total = 265.88m

I chose to become winners at the Start of the Season Expectation and got a 139m transfer chest. Had to adjust the wage budget around to make the transfers happen.\

Phew, now that we've done scrolling through each and every one player for the transfer fees, let's get on with the results.

The Season:

We won the league by a mere 6 points. A few blips here and there towards the end of the season made it a close fight with the rest.

We also won the Champions and Carabao Cup making it a treble for the first season.

Triumphed over the Noisy Neighbors through a big 4-0 win in the first leg, which enables us to go through to the Finals albeit losing the second leg 2-1.

Faced Leicester in the Finals, where we won:

Pellegri was injured over the course of these matches, which I will touch on later.

Champions Cup:

An early scare in the first knockout round where we faced OL:

But we then went on to win in the 2nd Leg:

We went on to play Tottenham in the quarters

Screenshot_20181106-214322_Google.thumb.jpg.d1e448f9f272a59f9da342df286d6a52.jpg

We went through thanks to the away goals rule and next faced Roma in the Semis:

Swept by them in 2 legs winning 6-2 in aggregate.

and finally, going up against FCP in the finals:

Winning the match 4-2 and taking home the esteemed trophy.

The 1KC Result:

Spoiler

The man who they say will be the next "Zlatan". How did the future of Italy fare?

Our main man had only 2 injuries which were each considerably long over the season:

2030351122_Screenshot_20181106-080004_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.8767a687aad844af14d74d697e8a269f.jpg576253454_Screenshot_20181106-214935_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.c92be359bd3a93fe2478f4726ed416b5.jpg

Ending up in him not really fare much throughout the season, scoring a mere 19 goals, half of the tally Lukaku made throughout the season:1527663613_Screenshot_20181106-222006_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.297e67f1ff39062a509429a581a5d74e.jpg

But I'm keeping positive as he's still young and has many years ahead of him (though in 1kc challenge, these years can come by fairly quickly)

This is him at the start of the season:

472198927_Screenshot_20181105-131646_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.b193479c33ac88f34e3e2343408bd683.jpg

and indeed he looks an improved player at the end of the season:

1020868179_Screenshot_20181106-221939_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.b97d514182ae07ef280038011caca4eb.jpg

Hoping to have him play more regular minutes in the second season, when I get someone to pay for me to ship out Lukaku.

Total Scored: 19/1000 (Balance:981)

That's it for the first season, hope you all enjoyed reading it. See you soon in the next update.

Til then, live long and prosper.

Head up mate, that’s an ok start. You’ve got plenty of time to make up for it. Fantastic player choice too, I’m sure we’ll see a lot of people follow in the trend of using Pellegri this year. But you’re the first! 😛

Great player choice. Pellegri was a machine in 18 and looks like he could be even better in 19.

Hopefully a few injury free seasons to come now 🤞

Thank you all for the well wishes. Now raring to make it happen even more.

Figured the injury may be due to the training intensity, although he doesn't complain about it. Had him out for amonth quarter way into the 2nd season. Hope tweaking the intensity can help him get more game time after he recovers.

Well in my save, he's recommended as a central midfielder and that fits into my setup which i've maintained so far. currently training his passing.

My guess would be you've somehow set to retrain him in a forward position or it's purely a bug.

I doubt Pietro Pellegri is recommended as a CM :P (Unless you manage to retrain him as a midfielder)  ;)

In FMM 18, his recommended role was also Defensive Forward / Target Man at first, if I'm not mistaken :)

yeap he was recommended as a defensive forward..I mainly focused on his shooting and pace so far as adbanced forward. but looking at the success of target men..i'm tempted to change it up😉

Easy mistake between Pellegri and Pellegrini :laugh:

I used Pietro Pellegri as a TM in my 5in1 career on fmm18 and he was a beast ;)

Id reccomend to train as TM as it seems most powerful attacking position at fmm19. In my opinion there are greater AF-s on game(Mbappe,F.Silva etc.)

Yeah, seems like TM is more consistent in bringing in goals. Half way through 3rd season now and he's banging in lots of goals until december. Though, I haven't been able to work around the post december barren run for 3rd season running now. May need to re-look at my tactic choice again.

Swamped with work but will post the write up 2nd season result soon.

I think you could have sold these players for more money ( like double the price you sold them ) but that is not important.

Season 2 Update

Finished season 2 few days back but haven't had the time to update the topic until today. Season 3 just finished and will be updated right after this is done. So without further Adu, let's get on with it:

Transfers

Out:

Out goes Lukaku and Sanchez to give Pellegri and the other forwards the game time. Could've shipped them out for more cash but the deal was done pretty close to window end. Shaw was injury prone in my save while Bailly wanted out himself. Other than that are players I deemed as surplus and would get more playing time at other clubs. I am a fan of keeping the squad small.

In:

Bought Guedes and Pellegrini to shore up the wings and midfield,

Joao Felix and Amiri as rotation for Paqueta and Arana to replace Shaw.

Suero (whom i believe a regen) is a future world class player based on scouts analysis.

Silva came in at the end to silence the players who were aggrieved with sanchez and lukaku going.

Champions Cup: The team fought through the disappointment of the loss and went into the Champions Cup final against Bayer 04. We played a great match and won the cream of the crop title beating our opponents 5-0. Pellegri again rising to the occasion scoring a brace in the match

So didn't manage to get a clean sweep in all competitions, but all in all a good season.

1KC Challenge:

So how did our superstar perform this season? Had one injury not long after the season started:

which made me change his training intensity to normal from intensive. Seemed to help him stay fit so far.

I do have some problems with injuries in this squad, even for those with normal training. The worst is Itter being sidelined for nine months:

Pellegri scored a total of 39 goals over the season, from playing in 56 games in total.

Only two hattricks this season. Some few braces scored in a few matches. He went on a slow post December run so far on all 3 seasons I've gone through. Tried some tweaks in the tactics but didn't seem to help too much so far. Hope I can find that answer in the upcoming seasons.

 

So with that tally, which is somewhat decent and could've been better, his total is now:

1KC Challenge - 58/1000 (942 to go)

Still keeping positive that I can make him score more consistently especially as he's only 19 (20 by the time this is posted, cos I just finished the 3rd season)

Until next time folks. Live long and prosper.

Sometimes injuries are just bad luck but if you have best training facilities and 3 gold/natural physios (2 prv and 1 rehab) then you have best chance. 

Solid start and good luck for next season.

Season 3 Update

Season 3 results are in. Let's just start with the transfers.

Transfers

Out:

Some main players last year who now I've deemed doesn't fit the squad has now gone out, while some were just youngster I didn't offer contract extensions.

In:

Benkovic and Llorente are direct replacement for Lindelof and Tuanzebe, Tonali and Cardoso are buys that are more geared for the future if I can develop them properly.

Almost a clean sweep in all competition, with the Carabao Cup eluding us. Is this the sign of a curse?🤯

1KC Challenge:

So how did our superstar perform this season? Changing his training intensity seemed to help as he stayed fit throughout the season.

Here's how his development went:

Here's him at the end of last season:

and here's after the 3rd Season:

A spike up in aerial thanks to the target man and aerial attribute training focus. Looking a better player overall.

But his tally however, is another story:

Only managed 35 goals, with an increase in assists this season. The slump after December hits him hard, after he hit the ground running early in the season. Here's some of the good games he had:

So with that tally, which is a bummer considering the reduced total of goals, the challenge is now harder but even more fun to go on with:

1KC Challenge - 93/1000 (907 to go)

He's now reaching 21, so I'll have to somehow push him to score over the 70 range assuming he stays playing until 35. Well, let's get to the drawing board and try our best again in the next season.

That's all for now. Thank you guys for reading and following this career.

Until next time folks. Adios~

Oh, disappointing season there. He did play all 62 games so what happened other than the dip? Are his teammates stealing his goals perhaps? 

Gotta get his goal tally up.

Yeah I figured the same thing, but not sure how to make them get the ball to him instead, maybe i need to change the midfield roles around.

 trying to see if I can get the tally up in the 4th season. if it doesn't..then guess i'm not ready for a prem league 1KC yet😂 will try in another league if that happens

IMO you should get some proper wingers, not Martial and Guedes as your screenshot suggests.

Crossing,dribling and teamwork are most important attributes of winger. Id reccomend Coman,Pavon,Asensio as your wingers, they all have produced goods for me.

Season 4:

So season 4 finished yesterday and it was a season to forget in both competitions and the 1KC challenge. Here's a short update on how it went.

Competitions

  • 2nd in the league behind Tottenham. The team were languishing in 5th place in January and luckily some bad results to the other teams allowed us to claw back up to 2nd place. But still a disappointing result
  • Lost in the Carabao Cup again this in the Quarters to Tottenham on penalties after drawing 0-0
  • Lost in the FA cup sixth round against Arsenal 2-1
  • Lost in the Champions cup Finals against FCP 2-0
  • Consolation titles were only Community Shield, Super Cup and Club world championship

Didn't screenshot the finals of champions cup but we lost 2-0 to FCP.

Transfers:

I was doing so badly even the transfer in and out screenshot escaped the top of my head again😴

IN: Rabiot (85m) Kessie (96m) Vagnoman (49m) Masiello (25m) and Achim Wickenhauser (regen-8m)

OUT: Bellanova(56m) Lorenzo Pellegrini(62m) Joao Felix (51m) Nadiem Amiri (42m) and Antonio Marin (25.5m)

Only Amiri went of during the starting window. Bellanova, Marin and Diego Llorente started requesting for transfer in November and even when I tried to give them game time, the morale of the team was already somehow affected coupled with poor performance in matches after that. They went off in the January window. Pellegrini had an offer from Barca I felt like not refusing and Felix went to Inter after they put up an offer for him as he begun complaining about game time.

Bought Kessie and Vagnoman to replace Pellegrini and Bellanova.

1KC Challenge:

Pellegri had 2 injuries, both 3 weeks long, and suffered some period of being jaded and tired after few matches. Nonetheless, he didn't score that much even during the time he was fit. The manager inexperience led his performance to go down worse than the year before:

Only 27 goals out of 40 appearances

So with that underwhelming 4th season, his tally is now only:

1KC Challenge: 120/1000 (880 to go)

Preview:

Looking at the numbers, I'm aware that this challenge may already be a lost cause. But I want to go on for at least another season which will be the ultimatum season. The number 5 would be a good number to see at least if I fail. So on we go to the Ultimatum Season 5.

Some advanced playmakers as wingers with big passing and teamwork attributes should do fine ;)

Season 5:

It's the end of a very short journey. 5 seasons in and I don't think he'll make it to 1000 because of the slow start. Maybe with the experience I can help him achieve it in a new career. Let's save that for later. Here's how it went:

Competitions

Not much to play for due to last season's failures. We accomplished these:

  • Won the league with 4 games to go. This is the highest Goals scored in season so far for the team. Sadly, for the challenge, the form came too late
  • Lost in the Carabao Cup in the 3rd round against Tottenham yet again.
  • Lost in the FA cup finals against the noisy neighbors 4-0
  • Won in the Champions cup Finals against Juventus 3-2

Transfers:

Courtesy of Rob, Fresh and Villen, I went and sold out all the IF's I had and bought natural wingers into the team. N dicka is bought as a utility player.

1KC Challenge:

So with that change of team dynamics, how did it change the performance? Here's how it went:

Was in red hot form by January (the screenshot was taken later than the injury date as I only remember to do it after the fact):

1 month injury held him back. and he came back after that a bit easily tired.

But he still went on to score a few more:

Scoring 44 goals in total for the season. Best season so far yet still not good enough.

(Noob question but does the 4 INT goals count as his tally in this challenge? or only those that is scored while i'm INT manager?)

Final tally: 164/1000

So the curtain draws to a close for this challenge as I go back to the drawing board. On the bright side, I may have a tactic i can try out before starting another challenge. May still be in the prem..may be out of england. 

Thank you for following and for giving help and suggestion. See you guys again soon.
