Career Score One Take One, Extreme Edition.


Recommended Posts

I saw @Foxy's incredible career and wanted to do it, but try and adapt it, making it crazy and almost impossible to work. Here is his original effort 


  • All goals count towards a player coming/leaving. So if I win 3-1, I gain 3 players and lose 1.
  • Highest rated player in that match gets swapped, if level, goes by AvR and then random generator. 
  • All games must be played on OVERLOAD to increase goals.
  • All players gained in the last game, MUST play in the next. Meaning that flexibility with tactics is a must.
  • Can have gold coaching badge, but no reputation or other unlockables apart from the IGE.
  • IGE only used to transfer players from team to team. No healing injuries, changing stats etc.
  • No transfers apart from those chosen by each match.
  • Assistant manager plays pre-season. No preparation to see how my tactic works...


I've used a random number generator to pick a Premier League club, went 1-19 as there's not a chance I'm going to manage Newcastle...Screenshot_20190118_160928_com.android.chrome.thumb.jpg.cf8365c7fa30e9a5e33bfcc9719d88e5.jpgScreenshot_20190118_160950_com.android.chrome.thumb.jpg.e0484fdbd01daa184f351e35aa34208a.jpg

7 was the number chosen, meaning that I have to manage Watford, the team that currently lie in seventh place of the Premier League table. I'll try and update every 2-4 matches and daily, whilst continuing my "Juve no. 10" career, check that out if you want. 😉

West Ham (a) - Premier League

I am owed 3 players, but 4 share their match rating. No AvR for first game so random generator it is...



Ogbonna, Yarmolenko and N'Dong will be in the starting XI for our next fixture. Good signings, even when I consider my dislike for N'Dong for going AWOL in real life...

Manchester United (h) - Premier League

Screenshot_20190118_170430_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.aa1bc7952e21f3e3083f15d733fd4b6b.jpgScreenshot_20190118_165028_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.f29b9d8fc97924a9f128021d51ab88aa.jpgBrought back down to earth with a bump. Shame about missing 2 clear cut chances, Lukaku/Sanchez could've done wonders. Who are off to the red side of Manchester? 



Gray has probably been our best player in both games along with Isaac Success. Cleverley returns to Old Trafford, but I consider him replaceable, and Pereyra is another I'm disappointed to lose.

Chelsea (a) - Premier League

Another 3-0 scoreline, where hopefully we can pick up some good replacements for those we lost in the Manchester United game 



Willian is a perfect replacement for Gray and Rudiger/Azpi are upgrades on Cathcart and Navarro. Very happy...Screenshot_20190118_170745_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.65e927576e7719d89d968accf5aadf9e.jpg...until this happened.

Everton (h) - Premier League

Simple swap this time, the two goalscorers exchanging teams after the game. 



Oldham (a) - Carabao Cup

However, with my rules in place, I will have 4x League Two players in my starting XI for my next Premier League game... 😬



I know nothing about these players, but 3 of them will be part of our spine in our next fixture... This could get ugly.

Thanks for reading and I'll upload September tomorrow!

Interesting take on this 🙂

Funnily enough I played every game of my version on overload as well.

Overload seems to be very overpowered when I've used it so far, although I've only used teams that are expected to win, so Watford could be a challenge.

Wolves (a) - Premier League


Another away win! Our league two players all getting a 7 rating apart from Dan Gardner. I'll take that!



In comes Matt Doherty, an excellent full back addition. With Azpi, Rudiger, Ogbonna etc, there's some good defensive options.

Bournemouth (h) - Premier League

Screenshot_20190119_084158_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.6ab6bd2c377b4a36469c9683af63f0d2.jpgScreenshot_20190119_084201_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.fce2cfec56bc51b8a32143b6911e0af0.jpgIt's finally happened! We've won a home game! So happy Foster saved Surman's penalty, would've been gutted to have lost Niasse. He's been excellent. 



What a result! Another excellent defender who can fill in at full back if needed, alongside 2 really good attackers. I'm particularly excited to use Josh King, hope he can form a partnership with Niasse.

Crystal Palace (a) - Premier League

Screenshot_20190119_084825_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.ea79b95065aaee5176eaae20be0635f5.jpgScreenshot_20190119_084852_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.98f6f9aeb5c722552da70d431fd6fd53.jpgAn awful first half as I tried out a new formation and Rudiger struggled with fitness. That goal will hopefully get us a decent player, although it'll be interesting to see who we lose...



Ake is straight out, but his replacement can play in the same positions! Very lucky in that sense. Gave Hughes his debut in this game, so not so bothered about him going, despite his performance.

Hull (a) - Carabao Cup 3rd Round

Screenshot_20190119_085657_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.c96d01e0350725cec0c5deba41f7dce9.jpgScreenshot_20190119_085715_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.dc901402767eb61e0bb99bf6c6f175a4.jpgAnother side that's not in the Premier League and another comfortable victory. Wouldn't mind wingers or full backs, don't want to have to player a lower league spine again. 



A centre back and a centre midfielder... Not exactly what I wanted. Really happy with Bowen, he's been on fire in real life and has decent stats. If he gets through the first fixture, he'll be a good backup.

Brighton (h) - Premier League

Screenshot_20190119_090339_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.08f4f0fdfc683124d1c74d2fa82ab2da.jpgScreenshot_20190119_090345_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.25022c6da78340a108f0cd5f00e5d7cb.jpgOnce again it's a 1-0 win following a cup victory, with Mazuch and Henriksen doing well on their debut. Ryan was Brighton's man of the match, but has he been their best player over the season?



Yes he is! That's a hell of a signing for us, we're starting to built a solid squad.

League Table and Form

Screenshot_20190119_090601_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.788d11366e6884a1ab105b7c76da2902.jpgScreenshot_20190119_090611_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.jpg.e06e0458616fe0f02c669a6cd36342c9.jpgNot a bad start, would certainly take a 3rd place finish. However, it's time for a rule change...

Rule Change

The whole point of this was to try and have lots of goals and chaos in terms of players going everywhere. We're not scoring or conceding enough so it's time to have a formation rule. From now on, at least 5 players must be in attacking midfield or higher. No more 4-2-3-1 for me. 

Hope you enjoyed reading, October will be uploaded tomorrow.
