Career Triple Threat, the Mike Ashley way.

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.

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

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.

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.

No own goals this time, good result.

The Boys

Sorensen

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

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

Juanito

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

23 goals, another good start for our man.

Watts

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

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.

This is one tough challenge, gonna be a long road to the 1,500 goals! 

Long and winding roads make for the most interesting journeys though.

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.
