Haha. Wish he’d do that for me! He scores in most games but hasn’t scored more than 4 for me and there only been a couple of times. Can’t complain though.

Season 11

Not a great season to be honest but keeps me on track to finish the challenge.

I had a few unhappy fringe players so i decided to get rid of them to keep the dressing room happy and replaced them with younger players so didn't have a strong a squad this season. Started off really strongly but when the fixtures list got busy I struggled to be honest.

Troy:

1st screengrab is later due to confederations cup finishing in July (well that's when i crashed out of it anyway...) and I wanted all his international goals for this season.

A big plus point is that he likes me again and is happy so glad he's chilled out there.

 

Struggled due to squad depth but still a good season, board are happy still so all good there.

Happy with this performance, everyone chipping in with assists. A few too many goals coming from Gomez but he's my AP so he does go for goal a lot, he also set up 15 so can't complain.

On another note, Ireland are pretty terrible now. No new players coming through and the current squad is old and bang average. Losing most of their games and the national board are unhappy but still haven't sacked me. I can't see me hanging on a whole lot longer if we don't pick up. I'm trying to develop any decent looking young Irish players at Bayern (my little side project) but i've only found 1 or 2 that have potential really.

Season 12

A few injuries for the big man this season meant he missed quite a few games. Still got a decent return for the games he did play so I'm happy with the outcome. Just hope this isn't the start of fitness problems.

IMG_5180.thumb.PNG.4b1ad95c29f61bf017c09a9594261022.PNGIMG_5181.thumb.PNG.87226cd94b7070e4f8027beb7aa03b4b.PNGIMG_5182.thumb.PNG.549a1a61c4891c585ed25402cb724712.PNG

A couple of his stats declined but I think that's just down to missing 3 months of the season. He got a nice £550k p/w contract to keep him happy too.

CL escaped me again this season which is frustrating as those World Club Championship games always bring goals but hoping to get back on track winning everything for last few seasons.

IMG_5176.thumb.PNG.c13df6b01669d9fb09bf24235bceb26d.PNGIMG_5177.thumb.PNG.4dbf6f19650fc14168abb00c1c5d9721.PNG

 

Team playing well together. Asensio is now 34 so is declining but I've got some nice creative players who are laying on the assists like there's no tomorrow - 75 assists from top 4 players.

IMG_5178.thumb.PNG.d824779832126794c616796c1b5bc83f.PNGIMG_5179.thumb.PNG.14ac81f4d001b5fa0be0c08b9a1a0903.PNG

 

International has been hard, Ireland really have no talent coming through and their current squad was ageing rapidly so we hit a big run of bad form and I was sacked. Not disappointed tbh as I won the World Cup with them in my time there so I'm sure there's a statue of me somewhere in Dublin. I'll just miss the extra goals for Troy but I'm sure i can get this wrapped up in the 4 or 5 good seasons he has left in him.

Season 13

A massive season for Troy banging in 84 goals for Bayern in his biggest club haul yet.

IMG_5185.thumb.PNG.902e875d714ed3f60afda13333c4d8a1.PNGIMG_5186.thumb.PNG.aea94d088ce5e9c711d435d16bd48a8e.PNGIMG_5187.thumb.PNG.6b2e64347ab986eb303aadf69bd276ec.PNG

 

Won everything going:

IMG_5188.thumb.PNG.325ffd4375b7a97917901069a26c214b.PNG

(Forgot to take other screengrab but won the German supercup, cup and the CL)

Solid performances all round.

All that leaves us with...

IMG_5192.thumb.jpg.4d26fd044c2e6d452b101ccc4b61d3b7.jpg

Would be nice to get this wrapped up in 2 more seasons but that's a big ask, 3 is more likely but you never know.

 

B2B 1K - Extra Challenge (tbc)

I'm also pencilling in an extra challenge. Back to back 1k challenges. Mainly because my lad Jaden (what was the wife thinking with that one?!) has just come through the Bayern Academy. He looks genuinely terrible but the coaches reckon he could have something.

He's now my back up striker so I'll see how he develops and if he can pick up any goals while I still focus on Troy. His stats don't like overly promising but lets see what happens. Haven't unlocked a son previously so might fancy this, just have to try it before i'm forced to retire...

Season 14

And the end is near...

Another massive season from Troy here beating the last! If only I'd made these formation tweaks earlier in the season.

Here he is now:

IMG_5253.thumb.PNG.1a940fb7614aa45763933e6a243354b0.PNGIMG_5244.thumb.PNG.c0f65abd0837790b3d5a388173c05da6.PNGIMG_5243.thumb.PNG.0a11104de008c8073f6be10e262e0ac9.PNG

Won the lot aside from the Euro Super Cup. Drew quite a lot of games weirdly over the course of a few weeks but still took the league.

IMG_5245.thumb.PNG.c607db96057548f748fb7c26462e653e.PNGIMG_5246.thumb.PNG.b9beeb9890507054fd56a20d507c2c8d.PNG

In order to help speed to the finish line of Troy's 1k challenge I took the Ireland job again as it was available. Took them to the Euros but he only managed to bag 6 goals as Sweden knocked us out in the 2nd round. Still, every little helps. 

I'll keep this until the England job comes up for reasons you'll see later on...

Spoiler

IMG_5199.thumb.PNG.028af41bec20c41cbe9b90af74870496.PNGIMG_5200.thumb.PNG.d354eb48f0b458ffa8d4d2f7634bb71e.PNG

He was at 122 int goals when I took  over.

Team stats:

Goals all coming from the big man, assists coming from all over my midfield and wingers (and RB who takes corners). New left winger hit the ground running with 17 assists so very happy there. Both wingers have the "prefer to pass than shoot" trait which seems to really help keep their goals down.

This leaves us with only 57 goals to go to pass the 1000 mark so this must be the season.

B2B 1K

Well my lad has come on a long way getting plenty of short sub appearances but I wouldn't exactly call him prolific.

He's developing well though...

Start of season:

IMG_5195.thumb.PNG.794432a3b1d17cdb4ff0f8c1a5f27f75.PNG

End of season:

IMG_5249.thumb.PNG.6beab91e6a93f8d50f9d65d9be9b2050.PNGIMG_5251.thumb.PNG.f87b1de0b7a60f340923ba2e2426063d.PNGIMG_5252.thumb.PNG.dedf71dc21f55fcc66642f0cb96d0b22.PNG

Perhaps there's some potential after all.

Let's do this...

IMG_5259.thumb.jpg.93e7258b68916ebb8890b008700c27a4.jpg

I still need to finish Troy's 1k but that gives me 15 seasons for this lad too. Could be tight but let's have a crack. He turns 19 half way through this season too which means he'll be 20 before he becomes the main man up front. Time is against me.

996 goals to go.

Not far to go with Parrott and it’s safe to say you’ll cross the line there so well done.

Your young lad looks like he will develop well too and I like the high number for technique as that attribute doesn’t seem to increase.

Yeah his technique attribute, with a little pace and strength thrown in, is why I though he might have some potential. Let’s see how much. 

I don’t know if “managers’ sons” have the same potential or if it’s random each time.

Well done with Parrott, i would make your lad first choice now as he will still need plenty of rest so Parrott will hit his numbers no problem. He looks great for 18, plenty of promise.

Season 15

And he's done it. Troy has passed the 1,000 goal mark and handed the baton to my lad as it's his turn for the limelight.

He's still looking very strong but he'll have to settle for being back-up striker now.

IMG_5260.thumb.PNG.e341a93610686496950bced9d63753ef.PNGIMG_5261.thumb.PNG.124261c1465f9c42cc6a0a82882fb063.PNG

 

Team had a good season winning everything going:

Again, happy with assists coming from all over but a few key players are getting old so I'll go for a bit of a revamp over the summer. I thought I'd be ending the save here so didn't have much youth coming through but I guess I've got another 15 season ahead of me so time to scout some youngsters as well. 

Troy 1k - COMPLETE.

IMG_5269.thumb.jpg.d910a3189cf6eb62a86feae76cffef99.jpg

 

Phase 2:

Young Jaden took over as main striker half way through the season and managed to rack up a very respectable 30 goals now he's the main man. Stats are looking alright but he turns 20 this year so need to really push the key goal scoring stats fast. 

IMG_5266.thumb.PNG.0ca14ec366a1b3305ed0804088e1ebb1.PNGIMG_5267.thumb.PNG.d75ae4ee5c1f399807795c8aa157f31f.PNGIMG_5268.thumb.PNG.fb6937e8eda4bab2fc5ed9c9087a7d9d.PNG

And here we go:

IMG_5270.thumb.jpg.926c7fb35258ba4a44934c28893602b0.jpg

Troy will stay as long as he's happy to be back up so his final number will go up but it's all about the nepotism challenge now.

There's a world cup this year so hopefully the England job will be available after that.

Season 16

First season with Jaden as my main man, did good. More to come hopefully.

IMG_5304.thumb.PNG.68d1db555bc3a717ae55e620be1f2ef0.PNGIMG_5305.thumb.PNG.5bac7d582639e006cbb31e1b49f2e1db.PNG

 

Good season for the team:

IMG_5306.thumb.PNG.3c4d21a4b98dc2e346e66037e490b07e.PNGIMG_5307.thumb.PNG.346dbad695cdf9585a3c916292695407.PNG

 

Bit of a revamp with the team this year getting some younger players in to replace some ageing stars (one I sold to Real for £50m two season ago, cost me £210m to get him back. Ouch. But he's perfect for my formation and young. Noah Deumeland btw).

Also got me a new coach ;)

IMG_5312.thumb.PNG.98f732f4840d0bbc240cc0813071f417.PNG

 

Long way to go still but a decent start:

IMG_5314.thumb.jpg.178db2a6dcaa5fc31a7d6f04e678ce37.jpg

 

Oh and this will help:

IMG_5316.thumb.PNG.6322cc4dd3de448a4daa7c09b769a329.PNG

 

Troy cont.

Spoiler

He's still got a couple of seasons left as my backup so will get a few more goals before he retires.

Season 17

Great season from the lad here scoring 70 for club and 11 for England. I've had to rotate him due to his Stamina not being amazing yet and he had a couple of small injuries so he's missed a few games but that's a great return at this point. Looking class too.

IMG_5320.thumb.PNG.38722e3b8ab33ebb79e52a71d2fa221b.PNGIMG_5321.thumb.PNG.302525b6214e171bf15534ae87365a5d.PNGIMG_5322.thumb.PNG.f72a591baf21537de0f1d51d89059995.PNG

 

Undefeated all season:

IMG_5323.thumb.PNG.fa50ff2809d3edbc14b792ebe88ebe95.PNGIMG_5324.thumb.PNG.382ec84385089893c8ccc5d322197c2a.PNG

 

Team working well as usual, assists coming from all over. A couple of my new midfielders want to score rather than shoot but thats helped me when JF has been going through a dry path anyway. Grohe, my corner maestro at RB, is now 31/32 so i'll need to find a replacement for him shortly as he'll be missed but he's got a year left in him i think. He got a big injury last season which hit his stats. He's recovered mostly but it's taken a toll on him.

IMG_5328.thumb.PNG.ad08051e25aec9d24af07b32220d08aa.PNGIMG_5329.thumb.PNG.e38503647e49b8f5b1b6a1fe93256f06.PNG

 

A solid start:

IMG_5330.thumb.jpg.c740672db337d9c4cf1f39751d3c6994.jpg

 

Troy is still around but his stats are dipping so i'll leave his updates from now on, he did get another 21 this season however.
