Career MikeF attempting B2B 1k's with Troy Parrott and Son - DONE

Recommended Posts

· Posted (edited)

Right. After my massive c0ck up with my ‘It’s a long way to the stop’ challenge (which I’m firmly blaming the iOS achievement reset not doing what it says!) I’m going to have a crack at a 1k striker challenge. 

Never done one before so who knows how it’ll turn out but I’ll give it my best. 

The chosen club:505CF759-2EAA-4824-B366-7D6714F5E651.thumb.png.9bcc3560c7ae10be4704438d431c769e.png

Went with Bayern as haven’t been them yet and they strong in the league. Should have really thought about the fact that the Bundesliga plays 4 league games less per season than England, France or Spain but cup games look easy so hopefully will balance out.

The chosen one:

Big spurs fan so thought who better to try this with than the future Harry Kane, Mr Troy Parrott. Looks pretty average tbh but good stamina means he can rack up the minutes and although my coaches don’t rate him too highly (he’s weak and stupid) they say he can improve a lot. A bargain at £20m.

Lets see how this turns out...

Minor ‘Spoiler’ alert!

Troy Parrott becomes a fairly good squad player in my save, while developing at Tottenham. Scores decently (from memory), develops decent aerial & physical attributes also (14-15 ish?). 

I’m in summer 2024 (finished season 6 with Sunderland) and have been managing the Ireland team for 3-4 years - so Parrott is in my national squad every time, and plays about half the games, is my 2nd choice ST or AMC after a 5* Irish regen.

Youll probably do better training & playing him yourself - so good luck & I’ll be following your save!

Good luck, turns into a quality player and very young so this should fly home.

Season One

Didn’t know what to expect starting a 16yr old but he did a good job. Scored 25 from 37 which I’m happy with. Developed well as a played and towards the back end of the season he was a totally different player. Missed nearly two months with injuries so could have got more of course  

Before season:1118B4B0-12AA-4EFB-A12E-D68E405DDEC5.thumb.png.91aba4ecab8f4c43c1833e64e1aea199.png

After season:07FBB46F-6CC8-43F0-A57D-0401DA8F8DF0.thumb.png.dbc52d291464829bb761bcb897725178.pngBAF61EC0-FF07-45E4-B3E7-5A32691CF3D7.thumb.png.b40358f60205a709d8936465c2c83442.pngB3A7A3EE-3D1D-4792-9283-41E8C5D5DD94.thumb.png.1b359eb1f954fe70f881e1d69c6f20a7.png

He actually scored his first international goal after taking this screengrab and before the next season starting (played 3, scored 1) too.

Team won the league but crashed out CL (not before Parrott scored a hat trick against Inter) and only made quarter finals of German Cup (I need better a back up striker).

Team stats are good. Pogba scores a few too many goals for my liking (pass man!) but Parrott did miss a fair few chances early on so hopefully he’ll be more sharing this coming season.

Transfers:

Spoiler

No doubt upset the fans by getting rid of a few of their favourites but signed some good players to suit my formation and a couple for the future. Weird not looking at ever buying a new striker aside from back up!

Wow that’s great attribute development and a lot more goals than I’d expect for year 1 - great start! Massive transfer business as well, any thoughts or surprises on that?

Pretty surprised that assists are quite evenly spread out across the team. No one player really providing the majority. Probably need to play with my midfield roles a bit (currently have flat 3 B2B/AP/B2B which works pretty well). 

For my transfers I mainly went for people with high teamwork/passing/crossing/decisions so they’re more likely to pass to Parrott than shoot. That was my thinking anyway. Any selfish player got the boot.

Wasn’t sure if it would but the challenge post said they count so long as they’re in game. i.e. not ones they’ve scored in RL before the game. 

Happy to do whatever the majority have done regarding this though. 

@Foxy to clarify as op?

International goals only count if they are scored when you are managing that nations team.

Season Two

Decent season again, progressed well but still a long way to go to have a chance at this challenge. 33 scored from 41. Top goalscorer in the division. Not too shabby.

Here's his stats at the end of the season:

Won the league but not as convincing as I would have hope, also won the CL:

A few too many goals coming from elsewhere and no one really chipping in with a lot of assists apart from Alaba who is on Corners.

Invested in youth (mostly young Germans) and bought Lemar as big signing. He was shocking.

All in all a decent season for young Troy but still a long way to go:

Season Three

Double update as had a long flight!

Started off having an absolute stinker scoring 2 from 12 in the league (but 8 from 3 in the CL) so i started tinkering. And tinkering. And made things worse. Finally admitted that I was over playing him which is why he was unhappy and the second half of the season he was a new man and there was no stopping him.

Stats:

He still needs to score more in the league but he's looking like a good player now.

Better performance in the league (it was looking like an undefeated season until two unlucky performances by rubbish teams):

Still a long way to go but i'm hopeful for the upcoming season. More creative players in the team providing goals, he just needs to be on the end of them now!

Season Four

And the boy has become a man...

Stats at end of season:

Great season scoring 54 domestic goals from 45 apps.

Mick McCarthy finally got sacked by Ireland and I got the job so that'll help him rack up the goals too. He had scored 4 international goals from 14 when i joined Ireland. Ended the season with 7 more.

Seven hat tricks for club and country and cleaning up at the end of season awards:

Team won the league losing only one game (bl00dy Hamburg beat me again!) but the CL escaped me. I beat Barca at home but they hammered me at their's so it wasn't to be.

More people chipping with assists so happy with signings this year, got rid of a few people that didn't quite cut it or develop as I'd hoped.

Pogba still too selfish for my liking, even in CM role, but no one wants to buy him so looks like he's here to stay. His average rating is high so he's doing a good job anyway.

IMG_4815.thumb.PNG.fb75dc2968136169e2a0848c10e34632.PNGIMG_4816.thumb.PNG.0edd5177794082dcbc94227761f8c40a.PNGIMG_4817.thumb.PNG.bcad8d607fef20c16c449aa259c6b189.PNGIMG_4818.thumb.PNG.b13f948f85864667afa543df2bc6e46d.PNG

Not sure what the bug with Mats Hummels is there but those three teams bid for him and he's about to go move come July 1st, he hasn't gone yet oddly. I'm sure it'll be sorted once he goes.

 

All in all a strong season and he finally looks good enough for Bundesliga. Onwards and upwards.

Season Five

Another solid season, 53 for Bayern and 15 for Ireland. Would love to know how people get loads more but maybe the Bundesliga isn't the place for 70+ goals. He's also only 21 i guess...

Undefeated in the league finally but leaking goals. I've switched from overload to attacking now and its helped without hurting the amount the goals scored. Clean sweep all round though.

Forgot to take screenshots of transfers page but no big signings really, instead i bought up a lot of youngsters with good potential to see how they develop. The board only give you £80m or so to spend so I'll need to play the transfer market to build a bank.

Lets see if we can get more goals for Bayern this year. Ireland are in Euro qualifying group with a couple of easy teams so should rack up some there too.

Wow. Parrott’s technical & physical stars are so much better under you, compared to my game where he’s stuck as a bit-part squad player for Spurs. Seriousky, he is a much much better player in your save.

Great progress so far - though 10 seasons at his peak @70 goals a season, how confident do you feel about this?

Any way you see for him to score more? Is he missing a lot of chances; or is he scoring with every shot - may give an insight into any tactical tweaks which may be needed?!

Am following your progress with interest!

I started off with Youth, Attacking and 2 Fitness coaches. Think that helped his stats. He’s tough now. Would like more pace but with that strength he’s a unit. 

He scores a lot from corners to be honest as he’s good in the air so I’ve got my wingers out wider now to send crosses in. His decision making was pretty low (around 12) when he was younger so he missed a few chances but that’s up to a better lvl now so I’m hoping he puts more away. I’ve got him as Complete Forward too which has done well now he’s got better decision making. Not sure if anyone can recommend best role for this challenge? Imagine it’s dependant on the player and what he likes.

Season One

Didn’t know what to expect starting a 16yr old but he did a good job. Scored 25 from 37 which I’m happy with. Developed well as a played and towards the back end of the season he was a totally different player. Missed nearly two months with injuries so could have got more of course

How can you increase Aerial index.

In my save, Aerial index doesn't increase more than 2 point

Season Six

Massive season from the youngster scoring 95 for club and country. Decent Euros in that Ireland got to the 2nd round and then got hammered (they're really not great) but TP had a decent tournament (despite missing 2 games with injury).

Slight stats upgrade too but slowing now as he must be near max potential for his age.

Teams stats and transfers:

Spoiler

Goals galore from Parrot and plenty of assists coming from the wingers and wing backs. A couple of people not chipping in with the assists as they should do (I'm looking at you Silva) so I'll dig around in the transfer market.

Pogba hates me and his contract was running out so he went for VERY cheap but no regrets. Savic will be good replacement i'm sure. Couple of youngsters in again and a lot who didn't make it sold on. Big squad now so fringe players are getting upset with lack of time played so i'm moving some disruptive ones on.

Lets hope for another big season like this. A couple of key players are getting old - especially Alaba who is a massive provider for the team) but he's got a year or two left in him.

Fantastic season there! It takes a lot of patience and those early seasons can be frustrating but when you get to the stage you're at now it should be a lot of fun. Sure you'll smash this!

Season Seven

Quick update as last one was delayed.

Following on from the last season I had high hopes the boy would deliver big numbers again. He didn't disappoint. Not as good as last year but still vey nice. 73 for Bayern, 85 in total.

Slight improvement in some key areas but looks like he's peaked now. Pretty good all round stats though so I'm sure he'll deliver for me over the next few years.

Team stats and Transfers:

Spoiler

A few too many goals coming from midfield which lowered his haul but team working well together. I'm going to have a slight problem soon with who to set for corners as Alaba is 33 now and no one else in the team has that perk but i'll squeeze another year out of Alaba i'm sure.

Looks like i'm pretty much a PSG feeder team now but they're welcome to my rejects if they want them! A few replacement players, a few youngsters. Usual business here.

He's hitting a nice groove now so i'm sure he can keep up the 70+ seasons for a while to come. Ireland job is a tad boring as they're not that great and have no youngsters coming through but the benefit of this is that we tend to get easy teams in Nations League and for friendlies so he can rack up a few goals and the Irish FA are a patient bunch.

Season Eight

Not as many club goals (69), but my boy did not disappoint for Ireland scoring a whopping 24 goals for his country and bagging the Golden Boot during the 2026 World Cup... but more on that later. Total goals score this season: 93

His screen grab came later this year as wanted to include World Cup tally:

Team stats and transfers:

I went full Poch this year fielding the exact same side as last season and it did me well, lots of assists from my front 3 support players but midfield duo aren't doing a whole lot (I'm looking at you Fernandes). I've got a plan for a slightly tweaked formation for next season so lets see if that helps.

IMG_4970.thumb.PNG.d4d358491c15071dfbd4de7f0dd81214.PNGIMG_4971.thumb.PNG.281000838fa7e5f0ccbc6585072c89af.PNG

A couple players in, a couple unhappy players out that didn't make the cut. Squad is beyond solid now but that means unhappy fringe players and no one is bigger than the team.

He's still banging in the goals but i need him to up his tally a bit again to the heights of two seasons ago. I'll tweak roles slightly, not sure he totally fits a Complete Forward (AF maybe?) so lets see if that stops him dropping deep.

The goal was to hit the half way point and we came very close.

BONUS CONTENT: 2026 World Cup

I tweaked my tactic with Ireland to be a basic version of the balls out tactic i use for Bayern and what do you know, we only went and won the World Cup!

IMG_4983.thumb.PNG.0c36f444bdd1902ea0d426edecfae415.PNG

We had an easy run (Ghana and Oman in group > Sweden > Holland - lucky win on pens > Tunisia in the Semi and Peru in Final) but dammit i'm proud of these boys. I did not see that coming and must have a job for life with the Irish FA now 'to be sure'.

Parrot took the golden boot scoring a massive 16 goals during the tournament. He's like a son now.

Season Nine

NOTE: I'll streamline these posts now as transfers don't mean much with unknown players and he's winning virtually all awards going so no need to spam with so many screengrabs.

Not the best season from young Troy to be honest. In an attempt to squeeze more goals out of him, I tried something new with tactics and it had the opposite effect. He also missed over a month through injury and we crashed out the cup in round 2 so less games played. Back to my old formation it is...

Also had some tricky international fixtures so only 7 goals for Ireland too.

IMG_5085.thumb.PNG.a7243ce6d226bbfa056786a95eccf50c.PNGIMG_5086.thumb.PNG.5e281bac5e7f8c6ec4e529ea4650752b.PNGIMG_5087.thumb.PNG.c3b150f9efb3e7b022253036452d7aec.PNG

I'll no longer post awards and hat tricks as he's getting lots so in the interest of making these posts easier to read, we'll go straight to:

IMG_5088.thumb.PNG.40ff32bfa188103e6e1294072b2c9226.PNGIMG_5089.thumb.PNG.d9e2cf8f9eecf6f9654e044bc7d40e53.PNG

30 wins from 30 in the league and then my boys collapsed to lose 1 and draw 2 of the next 4 games. Gutted.

Crashed out the cup early doors on via pens too which hurt as there are goals to be had there.

Team stats:

IMG_5090.thumb.PNG.d24844860b7731db5228cc0b2cc10bdc.PNGIMG_5091.thumb.PNG.a1843fcced0665f88128a53985dc9259.PNG

Good team performances with wingers and wing backs chipping in with plenty of assists but too many goals being scored by my wingers. Cross the ball man!

Not the best season but hopefully I'm still on track and he's yet to suffer a major injury so I'm still hopeful for this challenge. I need a couple seasons at least of 80+ again to make it a little more comfortable.

IMG_5092.thumb.jpg.11770f2bf9aae1e4d828e08b3c814b9a.jpg 

He seems to miss quite a lot of his chances so don't think his composure is too high (also misses half his penalties on average). I keep toying with the idea of a different role for him but CF seems to get the most goals from him. He wants to be an AF so maybe i should try that but I don't want to mess around too much as last time I did that, he dried up. I need to watch out for overplaying him too but that's down to me.

Season 10

Had a big overhaul of my team this year. Tactic was fine but I had too many players that preferred to go for glory as opposed to let Troy have the ball. I've got more industrious midfielders now as opposed to full on attacking players and it helps. 

Solid from Troy. 67 for Bayern and 20 for Ireland. Euros this year but we got beat in the 2nd round by France so he only managed 6 in the tourney.

Here he is:

IMG_5106.thumb.PNG.e83a2d90b3f1bb14fd271317802fcab0.PNGIMG_5107.thumb.PNG.3c8601632db5552cc5236003f0308bd6.PNGIMG_5108.thumb.PNG.37bc2199417bcb2b290dd2f900074959.PNGIMG_5109.thumb.PNG.d0161517a5ce7b2f0a4a66373a8587de.PNG

Half way through the season he decided he wanted a new challenge and became unhappy. I got him to sign a new contract but because I refused to let him go he turned on me a bit. I tried to explain the 1k challenge to him but he didn't listen... ;)

Also, got too carried away with the Euros and forgot to screengrab full History page but you can see his goal count anyway.

Good season all round but not undefeated.

Lots of people chipping in with assists now and new midfield roles seem to be working better.
