Career Triple Threat, the Mike Ashley way. (Season 3)

Recommended Posts

Intro

So I began a triple threat in France with Marseille, but it was a little boring if I am honest so I pushed for more difficulty.

Due to the tranfer window currently beig open I looked to an awful place for inspiration.

20170703-the18-image-mike-ashley.thumb.jpg.819b698717c68c22eb78c91875817fcc.jpg

Mike Ashley

Newcastle Uniteds own Mr Scrooge.

He just rarely spends big on players and not at all if he can help it. So that is my inspiration for this toon career.

Challenge

My career will follow all of the usual triple threat rules but has some additional rules.

  1. The three players must already be at the club. No big signings.
  2. No signings. All players are to be at the club already or promoted from the academy.
  3. Any offers over £10million for a player who is not one of the three strikers has to be accepted.

The Players

We know already that I am off back home to the north east for this challenge, but which 3 NUFC youngsters will I choose as my strike force?

Elias Sørensen

Newcastle's promising youngster has been smashing it this year and hopefully he can continue in that vein.

Juanito

0_Newcastle-United-U23-Players-take-Cookery-Lessons.thumb.jpg.ab57b1a34074c9fca8c3eafecded58c3.jpg

Seemingly forgotten about this young Spaniard is dying for an opportunity. He is getting it.

Kelland Watts

Beginning as a Striker before shifting to centre back. This youngster now calls himself a box-to-box midfielder. I am putting him back up front though.

I hope you like my choices guys and the career will begin to be posted soon.

This looks good!

The having to accept anything over 10 mil will make this rather interesting. 

Will be following 😀

Season 1

Our challenge begins. Can the young lads make a good start?

League

With the bog standard Newcastle United lets see how we got on in the league.

A fifth placed finish in amongst the big hitters of the division, and Arsenal.

Cups

Carabao Cup

We made it to the quarter finals.

That late Diamé own goal.... damn

FA cup

Fifth round faced cardiff again.

1279690184_Screenshot_20190111-133703_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.30fb969f563590c276ffcd3f80960916.jpg

No own goals this time, good result.

The Boys

Sorensen

1542349686_Screenshot_20190111-133551_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.e107a7d0f829e517c254961b01f05a1c.jpg

He has made some decent improvement. Lets see how it affected his score

2070785050_Screenshot_20190111-133559_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.10e66356ccfe5456176d793f99b9bc08.jpg

21 goals, not a bad haul for year 1 and his skill level

Juanito

354856530_Screenshot_20190111-133635_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.9eff6db9a20e393fb7ba5b44a8431876.jpg

Already looking like a half decent striker, is he though?

243969258_Screenshot_20190111-133641_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.4681ae45edd7a983d283547edaf031f4.jpg

23 goals, another good start for our man.

Watts

12725787_Screenshot_20190111-133604_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.427e4b8f0237b9e6bc6f2e08675f1350.jpg

He is still essentially a CB. Or more like a Vanarama level Libero. Can he score like a striker though?

833481111_Screenshot_20190111-133620_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.7158da38d434d5e1b4a738ea24c626d4.jpg

No. Just...no. Eleven goals is poor.he really needs to pull his weight in the future.

Results

Sorensen - 21

Juanito - 23

Watts - 11

Total - 55/1500

Nice idea for a challenge.

 

If you're going full Cashley you'll need to scour those random leagues for bargains.

 

You improving the training facilities to help promote from within? Keeping the Sir John Hall dream of a all Geordie XI alive!

I'm kind of going beyond Cashley. No signings. Only promoting from within. Geordie team.

Good luck! In theory with some money spent on the training facilities Newcastle could have an amazing youth system.

Literally the first thing I did too. Youth facilities as high as the board would allow.

Nice idea this. Sound start too.

I have one idea though. You shouldn't upgrade the facilities at all as FatAsh wont irl! The training ground is awful and not upto standard so i recon thats how you have to play it too....Ben Dawson is coping well enough 😆

Keep it up mate.

I think Newcastle’s got everything there to be a powerhouse, got the stadium, got the fans. Don’t even need a Man City or Chelsea style takeover, just need someone to come in and put the club first with a bit of money. 

Anyway I like the idea of this challenge cos it’s just proper cashley bleed the club dry in every department style.

Taking this under consideration i have decided not to upgrade either facility any futher. So the training facilities will remain "good" and youth "superb"

Season 2

Season 1 was an ok start but I really need the lads to improve their stats and fast.

League

The team are growing up, what doea that mean for our league campaign?

147980488_Screenshot_20190114-181125_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.b6186014a1ddfdf00aa8a450909b5539.jpg

The same points tally but one place lower. I won't complain though as this is a tough league and a weak team.

Cups

Carabao Cup

For some reason i missed the screenshot of this but having just checked my managerial history, we were knocked out in the 4th round.

FA cup

In a great (and fortuitous) run we went to the final to face Liverpool

2000872292_Screenshot_20190114-175257_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.75adbd63ee2f18d8c76541c0f6651edb.jpg

And win the cup. Another own goal in a cup game.

Europa League

A new competition for us to try our hand at and we do very well, the final at first asking.

691416307_Screenshot_20190114-181427_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.8aedc2860733c0ba7c1f96e7c0283023.jpg

But Leverkusen take it in extra time.

The Boys

Sorensen

1740714503_Screenshot_20190114-181136_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.9f994996064cf6627c0ef6fbfaf0d690.jpg

Not a lot of visible improvement. What about goals?

1223575530_Screenshot_20190114-181341_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.15c5bccde2281d59a4cf92a29296095e.jpg

Not a lot better considering the plethora of extra games he played.

Juanito

2138817889_Screenshot_20190114-181131_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.c506128f3914307932dd279e5717c155.jpg

This boy is a striker. Its just plain to see in those attributes. Does he score like one?

306673985_Screenshot_20190114-181331_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.341d8221d9924ece55e6cefaff9fb482.jpg

33 goals, better from our boy. Hooefully this is onward and upward as he did miss a lot of games through injury.

Watts

1530807083_Screenshot_20190114-181144_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.dc0b51800349231a5d8c360cb021e485.jpg

Wor Kel. Still a striker trapped in a Defenders body bless him. Did the striker inside come out?

1641131245_Screenshot_20190114-181354_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.d8dcc7aa03f253f8655cf0e45e22a7d0.jpg

It did! 24 goals, more than doubling year 1 goals. 24 well done that boy.

Results 

Sorensen - 49

Juanito - 56

Watts - 35

Total - 140/1500

He looks more striker-like than last time

Again already looking better than previously.

We finally win something. Mostly thanks to Muto being in for an injured striker.

FA Cup

A cack-trick is avoided as we did bloody well in the champions league. Until Barca smashed us in the final.
