Career Smog in Madrid - S22 - TT, 1k goals, 1k assists

Recommended Posts

· Posted (edited)

As an Englishman it is actually enjoyable to watch our national team at the minute, and there looks to be a good crop of youngsters coming through so i wanted to put these to the test. First of all let me introduce you to the club i will be taking control of.

download.png.777edf0a47d69bbb20e2eed556f331dd.png

Real Madrid - Los Blancos.  I needed a team with plenty of money to bring in the players i want and fancied Spain as a base for this challenge. Also despite their European success their recent league form has been poor and the squad is in need of a revamp and investment.

Next the players i will be using, each of them well known to us all.

IMG_5923.thumb.PNG.3b7f1e3ee4f119f76dc59d6a81cede6f.PNG

Challenges i want to complete;

Triple Threat (1500 goals) - Sancho, Rashford, Hudson-Odoi 

1000 Goals - Rashford

Assist Challenge (aim for 500) - Foden

5000 goals/assists - this is a personal target for all four players to hit a combined 5k goals and assists (need to be hitting about 300 per season so i'm hoping for a lot of combinations between the 4 players)

I will also target the England job and will aim to win the World Cup with these 4 players (i will be counting International goals for the above challenges but not assists as too difficult to keep track and verify)

 

This career is on the very latest update, i originally started it as a test save to see how the update played out with the hope of starting properly once we have final update to the game. I'm not sure this final update will come and i have become invested in this save now so i'm cracking on with it.  It is massively frustrating only getting one game a week out of players or having to play them 80% fit, and i am firmly in the pre-update camp, but as i said i am now invested into the save and hope to post some decent scores.

Season one will be up shortly.

Best of luck mate. Looks like an epic challenge, but with those players you should have a good crack at it. The only worrisome thing is the latest update part. Hope they release a smoother version soon.

Season 1

Transfers

Spoiler

So it cost a cool £256m to bring in our 4 players, plus a few other solid additions defensively.

Team Performance

Spoiler

Won every trophy, couple of close finals against Barca at the end of the season. The team also scored 204 goals in 63 games so a solid ratio to start.

Player Profiles

Training and playing has helped to boost their stats, they're developing into the top class players predicted.

Season 1 Summary

A solid start. Foden really struggled with his fitness so will look at improving that and i am hoping as they get older i can get more games out of them but on this update who knows.

Great looking challenge this! Not going to lie, I was not expecting you to get such a great first season being on the latest update and using these young guys, but gosh was I wrong. Amazing effort by all 3.

Did you find yourself having to rotate them often, or playing games on low condition? On my only career since the new update my striker only managed 38 games in his first season; and that was with 15 stamina and 3 fitness coaches! 

I look forward to seeing your seasons to come. Best of luck!

Excellent first season and I love the choice of players. It's something similar to what I was considering doing, but not brave enough to do, so I'm intrigued to see how much you smash it out of the park! Keep it up!

Hello everyone,

 

Apologies for offtopic (and my English) - how did you change the attribute colours of the players? They look so much better than default ones.

Yeah although he played 58 times i only let him play the full 90min just before an international break or if we had a week between games (very rare). Otherwise he would come off depending how he was performing, so if he scored twice in the first half he would come off at half time, if he hadn't scored i would generally give him until the hour then take him off. Same with the other 3 players, just tried to manage them but its hard work and a pain! Foden was terrible and could barely play a week after a full 90. Even doing this they would often start matches on 80-90% condition. One thing i have started to do now their development is nearly complete i have put them on light training around Christmas and that seems to help slightly and i have been focusing on their stamina pre season - i have two fitness coaches.

Fairly straightforward season, albeit needing ET and away goals to get through the latter round of the CL and PSG taking me to ET in the final. I expect nothing less with the players at my disposal to be honest.

Season 2 Summary

A good improvement all round. Slight tweak in my tactic saw a drop in goals for Rashford but an increase in assists, but Sancho benefited with a fantastic return of 40 goals. Might have to re-think that if i want Rashford to hit 1k as he is the eldest of the four players. Foden's return not great but again fitness issues really affect him the worse.

Another great season there mate, a strong effort. Rashfords stats are already looking insane. Foden is doing amazingly well here too, and it's a shame he is missing out on those extra games. Are you playing him in the attacking midfielder role? Anyone I have played CAM gets way more goals than assists I've found.

Also, I've found that players tend to stop struggling fitness wise once they hit 23, regardless of their stamina. Not sure if this is intended or not. 

Keep up the good work! Looking forward to next season!

Yeah he plays as an AP in the attacking midfield role. I’ve found in single striker formations the attacking midfielder can get 20+ goals a season but with the 3 guys in front of him I’ve not had a problem with him scoring too much just yet. I’ve just finished season 3 so will try and post it this weekend and his fitness is getting better.

Last post messed up and only posted my images with no headings, sub-headings etc, and no text. So here it goes again but it will be as brief as poss.

After a disastrous EURO2020 Southgate got sacked and this happened.

Current Standings

Apologies there's no write up behind all this but as i said i typed it all up but it didn't post and i haven't got time to do it all over again so these two seasons are mainly screenshots and figures, next update will be a World Cup special then Season 5 with a bit more detail.

As it stands well on cource for TT and Rashford 1K but 5K will take some doing.

Yeah, the early seasons are always more fun! Anyway, great job mate, the lads are looking alright, and look at those goals and assists flow!! Superb stuff.

Season 5 saw me try something differently tactically and i went for a gung-ho 2-4-1-3 formation. I am behind schedule for the 5K and as these boys hit their peak i want to try and maximise what i can over the next few seasons.

Club summary will come later, or maybe tomorrow, but i also adopted this tactic with England and this is how the World Cup 2022 went for us. One word to describe it - lucky. As you will see all the big teams were knocked out early and i had an extremely straightforward run on paper. The obvious problem with going so gung-ho is the defensive side of things and i had some crazy games.

My group games pitted me against Burkina Faso, Chile and Portugal. No problems and 19 goals in 3 games isn't bad.

IMG_6180.thumb.PNG.a703e35729de6e98187298df6fd9c857.PNG

Next up is the best comeback i think i have ever had on this game. 4-0 down at half time became a 5-4 win! At half time i pushed my two wingers up to the AM line in a 2-2-3-3 and set them as IF's and look at this. Incredible!

 IMG_6181.thumb.PNG.8338f533df9ad73901177f733e724bf7.PNG

You think lightning can't strike twice then you play the Quarter final against the Swiss and another incredible game. After the turnaround in the previous game i started with the setup that played the second half against Croatia. It backfired and we were 5-1 and 6-2 down, however this time i had no choice but to stick with the formation as i needed goals and it pulled through with two goals in injury time to win it!

IMG_6182.thumb.PNG.2d765aba5667cdbfcb6cdde8f5d53454.PNG

Now this is where i got lucky with the draw. Argentina and Brazil both knocked out by Egypt and Tunisia!

IMG_6188.thumb.PNG.484cb1a8c1d29a5885d69f065ac11cc1.PNG

I drew Egypt in the semi and this was relatively stress free compared to the previous two games.

IMG_6183.thumb.PNG.5285c001b1e938bac639e7ae4bde6175.PNG

The other semi saw Tunisia knock out Germany on penalties!

IMG_6187.thumb.PNG.7fbc101f4bf9a238b7d0fbc283f09b33.PNG

So a World Cup Final against Tunisia, obviously i really fancied my chances here.

IMG_6175.thumb.PNG.d08172bdc2e93eb8b8dbe74e1905903c.PNG

Smashed them and also kept a clean sheet for the first time all tournament.

IMG_6184.thumb.PNG.670587be1fa1ca48879b7c3bb62aa849.PNG

Cleaned up with the awards.

And dominated the stats.

IMG_6177.thumb.PNG.ff2724a14ed6887d164fbf5dd4cb909d.PNG

 

I'll be the first to admit i got so lucky with the draw and also those two comeback games but what a tournament!

 

This is my full international fixture list for 2022 so the next update will just be a club one.

Brilliant mate. I play two at the back too. It makes it much more fun! 

Winning the WC is a great achievement. Well done.

Season 5

Transfers

Spoiler

So with a new 2-4-1-3 formation i went in search of some quality attacking fullbacks/wingers. I couldn't get Dembele from Barca so i splashed the cash on Mbappe. Not strictly a winger but sure he could be a quality asset and money isn't an issue.

Team Performance

Spoiler

Always a strange season with the WC in the middle i find, as you can see tactic certainly scored plenty but the goals were quite spread out and as you will see at the bottom of this update only a small increase from the men that mattered. No clean sweep this season as Barca knocked me out the Copa del Rey.

Season 5 Summary

So despite the change in tactic and new gung-ho approach there was only a slight increase with a total of 306 goals and assists between them this season and to be honest now they are peaking i would expect an increase anyway. Still good numbers from them and finally getting more out of Foden.

Current Standings

TT should be fine, Rashford needs a bit more work, but the 5K is looking a bit too ambitious at the minute. A lot will depend how long i can keep the England job and how the next few seasons go.

Brilliant numbers so far mate so I wouldn’t worry too much about the 5k at the moment as the total is going to be huge either way.
