Career Moscow Nights-A Russian 1.5k Attempt (SEASON 4)

Recommended Posts

· Posted (edited)


It's a cold and stormy Tuesday night and we're fighting relegation halfway into the season... And our next match is against league leaders Atletico Mad-

Oh hang on, 

Wrong career. 

See, now that I've ended(rather abruptly might I add) my Scottish RTG. I thought I could finally focus on the other career I had started, which was my Can't Win Anything With Kids-Extreme Edition career. 

However, due to the new update messing up player fitness I ran into a massive brick wall and now that career is basically impossible to play(in fact, I believe I'm a few games away from being sacked now).

So now that both the career modes I had started have so suddenly ceased, I'm left feeling extremely bored... 

And so here we are! 

Now, we've all seen our fair share of goal challenges right? But no one has tried Russia yet AFAIK. And the thing about Russia is, they have a strong league with their own fair share of wonderkids no-one has heard of. 

So, I've got my jacket on and I'm staring this blizzard in the eye. I am gonna do this. 



Spartak Moscow, Aka The People's Team. 


Okay, now that I've got that out of the way here is a link to their wiki page where you guys can do some catching up on these guys.

TLDR:They are the most successful club in Russia with a huge trophy cabinet that I hope to make bigger. 



A tough little guy by the name of Danila Proshlyakov(I'll call him Danny-boy) who I hope to make into a tough big guy. 

Now I know he doesn't look amazing, but he is just 18 and I'm sure with a little bit of play time he'll go on to do great things. 

Originally I planned to do a 2k, but given how slow his first few seasons would start I decided that was being too ambitious and that a 1.5k is still a difficult enough challenge. But 2k might still be up, who knows... 



And before I end this little introductory post I want to give you guys a look at the players who make up my starting 11 currently.(i also plan to give regular updates on my starting 11 every few seasons, maybe every 3 or 5 season?)

Here they are: 


A somewhat decent keeper, but unless he improves significantly I'll have to replace him. 


At just 20 years old I have hopes of him becoming a mainstay in my defense. 


A little on the older side, but he is the best I've got for now. I have already scouted out his replacement though. 


Pretty decent looking fella, not really that interesting either but I suppose that's just the downside of being a defender... 


Slightly too old for my liking but I've a guy waiting in the wings who is almost good enough... 


Definitely a key player for this side. In fact, if you guys are looking for a decent all rounded(with some slight defensive bias) midfielder I recommend Zobnin. He should be able to do the job for most mid-top sides. 


Just bought him in for about 8.75m to be a defensive double pivot with Zobnin. Not amazing on the ball, but he'll get the job done off of it. 


Not the best right winger, but at just 21 years old I have hope he'll grow into it. 


I can't believe I bought him for just 5.75m, I completely robbed em blind!. Might not be at his best as a winger, but he's still the best I've got. Surely he'll be a key player for the next few seasons. 


Looks pretty strong, don't know much else about him but he looks like he'll get the job done. 


Surprisingly, Danny-boy ain't gonna start this season.(come on look at him, he's kinda shit) Instead we have ol' Luiz Adriano providing the goals. One thing in my favour however, is that Adriano tends to get tired quite easily which means our main man gets a fair share of games and goals too. 

And that's it for this season fellas, wish me luck against the cold angry night.

Looks like a good set up, good luck! Will be following with lots of interest :)

Thank you, sure hope I don't end this career too sudde-

Communist! Haha.

Best of luck and good choice with the player.

Aha! I've found out why no one does Russian careers now. It's because you kept calling everyone a communist. 

Ladies and gentlemen, we got him.

Interesting choice of player and I hope he can develop well for you.

Good luck mate.

Yeah at first I wanted to use another guy who was good with both feet, but then I thought, better shooting=more goals(at the most basic point). And Danny-boy has the best shooting out of all the U18 Russian players. 

Also, a big thank you in advance to all those who will follow me as I go through this crazy challenge. I know sooner or later it'll become harder for me to push through to the end, but now that I've posted this here I'll have to try my best to get as far as I possibly can.

Nice and easy clean domestic sweep, but I completely flopped in the CL group stages after only managing 1 draw and 5(!) loses. No doubt that the ultra attacking tactic I'm using does not work so well against teams better than me... 


Both our strikers did well and lead the Premier League and the Cup in goals. 


Unfortunately we don't have a main playmaker who gets all the assists, instead our assists are divided pretty equally between the wingers and the AM.



Had a pretty good showing in the league. Honestly I'm surprised with how little goals I've conceded, and I thank my defence for that. 


The Russian Cup was an excellent game won by a hat-trick from our hero. Unfortunately, looks like the boys in blue didn't like that and sent our Danny-boy out on a stretcher. (Interestingly, Dinamo Moscow have their roots as the 'police' team...)


And with the fixtures out of the way, how about we take a little look at some key players this season. 


Unfortunately Adriano got a long career ending injury at the start of the season. Which meant Ze Luis here had to make the step up and become our first choice striker until Danny is ready. 


And it is safe to say that he has done a wonderful job at it! In fact, I think he might be able to keep his first choice spot for another season yet...

Of course we can't forget the main focus of this story now can we? 



That is some incredible growth, and guess what? Unlike half the youngsters I buy, he still has room to grow after one season! 

His attributes look good, but what about his stats? 


Averaging about a goal a game right from the start! This looks promising. 

Ah, but there is one minor problem I've run into now.

I seriously think it may be impossible to reach 1.5k.

But that doesn't mean I won't try to, I'm just saying that we should keep our expectations low. 

So here's what I propose, 1000 goals as a starting achievement. Sort of like a bronze medal. Then 1250 goals as a silver medal and finally, 1500 goals as my ultimate objective. The gold medal. 

But enough of all those boring details!

Here is the scoreboard:


Hmm this will be a challenge, but who doesn't love a good challenge eh? 

And that about sums up how season 1 went. 


Here are some manager stats to give a nice little wrap up. 

Wish me luck Comrades.

Went pretty well I would say. Cleaned out everything nicely domestically, but couldn't make a huge impact in Europe. Danny had a great season, getting a decent amount of goals domestically.(more on that later) And once again, we didn't lead in assists due to it being split pretty evenly between the wingers and the AM. 


Our League campaign went all right, and once again I'm surprised with how defensively sound we were. In fact, at this point I'm wondering if there's any way to trade off some defense for offense. But given how I'm already playing overload with a high defensive line, I don't think its possible... 

The Russian Cup was a pretty tough game.Screenshot_2019-03-14-22-43-24-439_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.24e3b3c10f50c7ddf6c1161a38632bb7.pngWhere Zenit's Keeper put in an extraordinary performance in the first 90 mins to drag the game out to extra time. Unfortunate for him, he was unable to do the same in the last 30 mins. 

We got knocked out of the CL in the group stages.Screenshot_2019-03-13-21-30-33-022_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.17b86a9ddfdf82450cc843798f0cdf0b.png

Luckily this time we were just good enough to make it to the Europa League.


Where we played amazingly in the quarterfinals to win 8-2 over two legs. And Danny even got a hat-trick! 

Unfortunately, Screenshot_2019-03-14-22-42-59-773_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.17125fa8a9d681745f870069df120cde.pngScreenshot_2019-03-14-22-43-08-289_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.42edaa7463644392eafccc51fd3f8d89.png

Barca somehow found themselves in the Europa League facing me. Not much to say except that we got beaten by a team that was simply better than us.

But enough of all that! Let's move on to what we all came here for, 



Looking pretty good if you ask me, and he still has room to improve! 


Pretty similar GPG to last season(which is kinda disappointing given how much he has improved), but he did manage to play more games this season. Which mean he scored more goals too, which is exactly what we want. 

So with this seasons haul added in, the tally is at... 

70/1000 goals. 

At 20 years old, he has not much more than 15 seasons to go, doing some quick maths that comes up with slightly over 60 goals a season just to reach the 1000 goal mark. 

Hmm seems pretty doable I would say :)

Also I would like share that thanks to his impressive haul this season, he's managed to sweep up nearly all the awards that were up for grab this year! 



Well that's it for this season's update. Sorry if it seems a little rushed and short, because it was :)

Anyway, Screenshot_2019-03-14-22-45-04-912_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.ca920890435695d69a2dfcc5a4339997.png

Here are some manager stats as is customary. 

And with that, thank you for reading and I'll be back like the T-100.

I had actually finished this season yesterday, but simply couldn't find the time to do a write-up(I've also finished my scouting for my Reasonably Priced Wonderkids series, which should be up soon after this.). 

Anyway, on to how the season went! Screenshot_2019-03-16-01-41-01-652_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.f596234763f7a8959f9eedc81c6dd75f.pngScreenshot_2019-03-16-01-41-06-277_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.c2beb61c05faa41ecd3056e90012437e.pngScreenshot_2019-03-16-01-41-11-133_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.154787ee84177de0667f25b9507e60be.png

Yet another easy campaign in Russia. Danny easily claimed top spots in the score boards. Impressively, my player's also managed to grab the top spots in the assists leaderboards, which they've never done before so well done lads! 

Screenshot_2019-03-16-01-41-23-302_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.ed20b4e3497326808a46bbb6a0151817.pngLeague might seem like a cakewalk, but Zenit put up a strong fight and were leading the league unbeaten halfway into the season. Unfortunately both their home and away games against me were in the second half of the season... 

Screenshot_2019-03-16-01-41-50-558_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.7c5bff952ea2e9cd83c741dce3fd8324.pngThe first silverware of the season came after an exciting game where both Danny and their RB scored a brace to win me the game. 


And the last silverware of the season came after a terrible game where we really suffered to get shots on target. Thankfully, we had a world class forward on our side :)

Screenshot_2019-03-16-01-42-04-718_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.6fc0f6df71c7fa5be0ffa1911682a767.pngWe also managed a decent showing in the CL, making it to the Quarter Finals. Screenshot_2019-03-16-01-42-09-154_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.d8c28af7e592ff6bb3d0b4e872488b1f.pngBut Real Madrid were simply too good here. 

I wanted to do a whole in-depth guide of my team, but not in this post. Maybe in a few hours or tomorrow, depending on how I feel. 

And that leaves us with... 


Screenshot_2019-03-16-01-42-49-209_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.ee3cb7848c350781c72e7acfe4649c98.pngA world class striker. 

And you know what's amazing? He still has some more room for growth! 

Screenshot_2019-03-16-01-42-55-254_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.547145da298a781f3fd1b3007ff83842.pngNaturally, his goal tally is also world class! 

So that brings us up to:

130/1000 goals. 


So that concludes this season's update, Screenshot_2019-03-16-01-43-00-768_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.d345422d850b01f8d36b2489afedc448.png I'll leave you guys with some manager stats and I'll see you all next season. (or whenever I post something next, but whatever)

Screenshot_2019-03-18-14-38-40-013_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.8db8f5ba0e1ecc0d8b471c4cfc8a49fb.pngMy offense, however, is one place I have definitely improved on(even if just slightly). Here we have a Man U reject(I mean that in the nicest way, he's been immense for us but we bought him when he was listed...) Really great player who is the best mix of AP+W. 


Screenshot_2019-03-18-14-38-47-969_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.e08b0ab569acb7fb5b8735c0c744d1fa.pngOnce again, a perfect mix of an AP+W. I only got him last season despite him being on my scouting list since day 1. Glad to see he's worked out great. 


Screenshot_2019-03-18-14-38-53-124_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.527c73ae233bf1eda22d76398b922cf1.pngHaha, embarrassingly I forgot to add Quintero in! Sorry JFQ! Interestingly, he started out his career as a winger in this club before moving to his more natural position as a No. 10.


Screenshot_2019-03-18-14-38-59-263_football.manager.games_fm19.mobile.thumb.png.28b8875ff5f6a4b9f741c8c28ac1e71f.pngAnd, of course, the man who makes this challenge! I mean, you guys hear about him every season so surely I need not add anymore? 

Anyway, that's all for now. I also want to add on for all those who follow my Reasonably Priced Wonderkids series that the Strikers list won't be out today :(

Season 4.


Went pretty damn well I would say. Finally made my mark in Europe with the Europa League win. (more on that later, I got some of the funniest draws on my way up)


Predictably, we took top place when it came to scoring goals.


Ah, but assists were kinda interesting this season. Because I finally found my main playmaker!(more on him later.)



The league was a pretty easy win, 


But if CSKA didn't hate us so damn much we could have gone unbeaten... 


The first silverware of the season was won without too much trouble(minus the poor goalkeeping) 


The Russian Cup went smoothly as well(once again, some poor goalkeeping here. I'm starting to notice a pattern here...) 


We got a tough draw in the CL, and were simply unable to surpass either Chelsea or Real Madrid. We were not fated for Champions League glory this season... 


Now Europa League on the other hand... 



I ain't gonna lie, I was sure our run was over here. 


But the sons of bitches bottled it! We were down two man and they f***ing bottled it! How?... Come on Liverpool... 



Well, another English team...


And I'm thankful for the away goals rule.



And an incredible late game hat-trick from our hero led to us lifting the Europa League Trophy. 



Now, I know that I just made a post talking about my team but there is one guy I thought we all needed to take a second look at. 



Look at that! A world class winger if I've ever seen one. And that's just his stats playing only about 3/4 of the games... I can't wait to see what he'll achieve next season.



Now that we've got the appetisers out of the way, on to the main course! 



Looking class as usual lad! Unfortunately my coaches say that he's already reached his peak, but oh well. Reaching his peak around 22-23 years old with constant game time does seem pretty fair to be honest. 


He also managed to start every single game of the season. This is it, the limit, 53 games(+/- a few games). Hmm if I'm serious about reaching the 1.5k milestone I need to make him start scoring 2 goals a game...Also, I might have gotten a bit too obsessed with making him start games that it has impacted his performance slightly.(especially towards the end of the season. 


Here you can see his last 20 games. First 10 games, 17 goals. Last 10 games 7 goals. Hmm... 


 Anyways, that brings our total tally up to... 




Still a bit on the low side to be honest. I have to remember he's already 22 too! 


I guess that about sums up this season. 


Here are some manager stats to wrap things up, thank you for reading and I guess I'll see you guys around.
