Career Tree tried the Nordahl challenge with Marcondes

The what?! With who?!

Hey ladies and gents, I'm back with my new project... I had an idea in mind but when browsing the index, this jumped out at me as a good shorter one in the meantime...

Credit to @danovic78 for the original idea:

So 8 seasons to get two titles, 5x top scorer, 210+ league goals and 0.77 goals per game - referee, I'd like to ask for clarification, is that "goal per game" number just in the league or overall?

My chosen club:

Simply because the guy who sits opposite me at work is a Roma fan.

 

And my chosen weapon - this chunk of Danish hunk:

I know someone else ( @Gunners Rishi?) has mentioned him elsewhere on here, but my basic goal for the rest of this FMM season is to Brentfordify any challenge, and when this dude ain't posing on Instagram, he's lying on a treatment table in West London :)

In real life, we signed him 18 months ago and he still hasn't scored :( but he's been unlucky, bless him. He looked good in preseason but then got a knock, came back for a while and set up this late equaliser at the Hawthorns with a beauty of a cross...

...before promptly breaking his foot with no-one else's help moments later:

(that's him on the left)

 

Anyway, we'll hope for better luck here.

We started off incredibly well, with Emiliano banging home a penalty within 2 minutes of his league debut and adding a free-kick 15 minutes later.

They have a crazy amount of players out on loan, so it was tough to fully assess the squad. Needed a better keeper. Added Andone as another striker option and Gbamin for BWM in January. That offer for De Rossi was surprising but helped the wage budget, as did getting rid of Fazio, not needed when I had some other decent CB's.

Good luck tree because Emiliano is the goat of players. Took him off that treatment table and in my all conquering side with Brentford emi was the star. Tons of goals, assists and awards. And that six pack... 🔥

You’ve given yourself a nice challenge here which will be interesting so good luck.

Not sure about your clarification but I’m sure Danovic will clarify it when he next logs in.

Thanks all for your support. Yeah it's not the shortest, but compared to my previous one and my next one (I'm 99% sure what I'll do after this), it's a walk in the park :D

SEASON TWO

After a year of "getting to know you", it was time for some squad surgery. We sold a boatload of players to generate funds:

+101 loans...

20190624_221504.thumb.jpg.a9029eeb821993cc8e192211933e4c6d.jpg

I liked Pellegrini but I didn't know he had a release clause. Gerson looked tasty but I had other options and he wasn't performing. Those two plus Coric and Pastore mean 4 of the top 6 were AP's. Marcano's a good CB but I decided to upgrade, while Jesus didn't fancy a new contract.

Thauvin came in mid-season - him and Under as rotating IFR options should be deadly. It took a few of the others a while to settle in but they did well for me in the end.

Scraped past Chelsea in the quarters, 0-0 at home and 1-1 away. Then beat Juve both legs in the semi and the final was awesome, with Neymar getting a red card for kicking Manolas off the ball, haha the twat.

A great year for Emiliano:

Decided to just use him in the league for the sake of the challenge and his fitness. Think the two I missed were oversights!

No real spectacular games to show, no hat-tricks (a fair few braces). We got very lucky with penalties during the season, way more than I've ever got before. I couldn't be bothered to count so no numbers for you :) But definitely more than 10.

365035012_Screenshot_20190624-112204_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.b948c8a0d1d831e6f629471e5f266b6a.jpg

Convincing in the end but I have to confess to some sportsmanship. Bonazzoli was top at Christmas, by miles. I didn't like him as a player... But Atletico Madrid did :) so i put in an offer and then, sadly, so sadly, I was outbid, and young Federico was packing his bags for Spain. Adiós, amigo!

So overall:

League Top Scorer - 1/5

League Title - 1/2

League Goals - 42/210

League Goals per game - 0.62 (target 0.77)

A great season, but it going to be tough  to get the goals.

thanks Paul! indeed it will be, especially with Emiliano not being a natural striker - even repeating last year for the next six seasons would leave me 18-20 goals short. so a little more needed. will just try and stack the rest of the team and make us a mighty attacking force, i guess!

A total of 82m in. Kampl, Manolas and Nzonzi were moaning too much about not playing enough. Sadiq just a reserve striker - could be good but I've got better. Not showing there but Justin Kluivert went out in an exchange deal - again, decent enough prospect, but I couldn't justify him hanging around.

Belotti's shit-hot, couldn't resist. Retsos to shore up the defence, Locatelli as another midfield anchor but I've already gone off him, Costa a young Spanish midfielder, Pavon to add to my collection of wingers. Did have problems with one of my wingers though:

Juventus were dynamite. I lost away to them and drew at home, and managed to lose a random game to SPAL, and that's what really killed me. I wasn't close until they dropped a couple of points in the run-in, but they won their last 4 to seal the deal.

Managed to remember to keep him out of any non-league match.

 

And if all THAT wasn't enough, he was attracting interest from... a side in the English fifth league?!

(yeah I checked, they're still in the VNL. Wtf)

Challenge

League title - 1/2 - so this year's tough loss isn't too devastating, cos I'd like to think I'll pick up another before we finish!

League top scorer - 2/5 - this was the tougher part of the challenge as far as I could see, so I'm glad we bagged it this year. 3 more needed in next 5 years.

League goals - 74/210

League goals per game - he had 42 from 68 prior to this season, so add 32 from 37 - that's 74 from 105, so 0.7 gpg. Target is 0.77.

 

As always, thanks for reading!

Horribly unlucky not to win the league with that amount of points but everything else went swimmingly and I don’t think you’ll have any trouble persuading him not to go to Chesterfield😂

Apologies to any Chesterfield fans that might be viewing this.

216m in, so net spend around 70. Couldn't resist Sancho, which forced El Shaarawy out - shame really, he'd been doing well for me. Otherwise got rid of some moaners and some young talents that were never going to make the breakthrough. Got Stark in to shore up the defence, and Henderson as I was looking for a real top-level keeper, plus Cillesen's 32 already. Havertz has been a disaster, thought I could fit him in my system but I don't use a 10 and I guess that's his main role.

Yeah, smashed it. League record the same as last year's actually, but Juve couldn't maintain theirs. Lost away to Juve but beat them at home, and lost at home to Milan who scored two late goals, grr.

Needing one win from last two games to secure the title, bloody Tousart got sent off in the first 5mins! But this was bloody impressive, to keep them away from our goal 10v11!

Not as good as last year :(

Just one hat-trick, for starters!

As for top goalscorer... Those two goals against Lazio on penultimate day moved him into a tie with Dybala...

And he scored two more on the last day to take the crown!

What's Chievo's manager got that I haven't, huh, huh?!

Challenge

League Titles - 2/2 

League Top Scorer - 3/5 - so 2 more needed in last 4 seasons

League Goals - 100/210 - just behind the pace at the halfway point

League Goals Per Game - we had 74 from 105... I didn't get the screenshot but pretty sure he played all 38 in the league (and that's the worst possible number I could use, so no cheating), scoring 26... So in total, he has 100 from 143 for a 0.7 average (target is 0.77)

My two highest outgoings were full-backs - Karsdorp a very decent reserve RB but Florenzi's been great too. Brought in Chapuisat to replace him but the board aren't impressed. Grimaldo was my first choice LB but Pellegrini has bloomed and he's ready to take over. Young English possible Ashley Cole regen Taylor brought in to replace. So not much profit on those.

Got lucky (buggy) with Havertz, all offers are lowballing, think I'd settled on £9m, then suddenly this different level of bids came in.

Lascelles was great for me but Stark and Retsos have formed a great partnership and I had young talent behind them. Gbamin sulked at not playing, so I decided to replace him with Kondogbia, £90+m backup for Tousart. Granqvist is just a 5th striker with potential, barely used.

2-0 up in 10 minutes, guess we got complacent. But we got there in the end.

Was always on top after beating them 4-2 early in the season. Couple of silly losses but sealed with two games to spare.

Champions League

This was the "winter world cup" year, but still a bit disappointing to have this for the CL Final:

We eventually overpowered Bayern, with a couple of goals for my rising African stars:

Not the best season:

And for the top prize, it looked like his mates were going to be his biggest competition:

But in the end, Zaza and Dybala were tied on 21 going into the final game, with Emiliano on 19.

Then this happened:

But of course, a brace from either of the Juve players would have rendered this worthless...

... Fortunately, they got one each, leaving a three-way tie:

But I looked it up - I can't see any mention of what they do if there's a tie, and there are years when the prize has been shared. So I think we get to claim this! Praise be to the last-day hat-trick!

His final figures:

Yeah, I left him in for one cup game and forgot to put him back in for a couple of league games :(

Challenge

League Titles  - target 2, already achieved, now have 3 in total

League Top Scorer - 4/5 - only need one more in last 3 seasons!

League Goals - 122/210 - 88 needed from last 3 seasons, hmm!

League Goals Per Game - we had 100 from 143, so add 22 from 36 gives a total of 122 from 179, an average of 0.68, target 0.77

SEASON 6

Transfers

Quick and easy here - I part-exchanged my 5th striker who was getting restless - gave Liverpool £32m for Woodburn plus my lad. And sold my Italian reserve centre back and goalkeeper for £16m combined. And that's IT! Settled squad.

Yes, shock horror, our Champions League run is over!

Barca and Sir Harry already took a 2-0 lead in Rome before I battled back to salvage a draw. Sadly my right-back was injured and my reserve not that good and unfit too, so I moved Retsos over and threw hot young prospect Ancelotti in the deep end. To be fair to him, he's been excellent, and the ref clearly screwed us here, boooooo!

Not only that, but dumped out of the Italian Cup too! An entirely reserve team (Ünder came on as sub), we won 4-1 on CCC but lose 4-1 on actual goals :(

My best-ever league performance coincided with Juve having a woeful season, so we sealed the title with SIX games to go:

Emiliano

Spoiler

Per above, we know that Emiliano got the top prize, and we know he somehow got a red card in the Italian Super Cup...

So yes, I've been playing through some distractions so I forgot to put him in for a couple of games. And then I didn't realise and left him in for a cup game - and the twat got sent off and suspended for a league game!!

1349452514_Screenshot_20190705-203131_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.df873428d4e5088405dd16a401ba8588.jpg

Still, not a bad result, can't complain :)

 

Challenge

League Titles - target was 2, we now have 4

League Top Scorer - we've done it! I thought we'd struggle here but Emiliano has topped the charts for five years in a row now (albeit one was a tie). The target was five and we've hit it!

League Goals - 147/210 - 63 needed from the last two seasons - not impossible, but tough

League Goals Per Game - we had 122 from 179, so add 25 from 35, gives a total of 147 from 214 - an average of 0.69, target is 0.77 - by my calculations, to achieve this (plus the overall goals mark), those 63 goals will need to come from 60 games maximum!! Looks unlikely but it's only a game :)

SEASON 7

Transfers

After last year's calm, this season we made some big changes as we tried to get more shot-shy unselfish attackers to feed Emiliano...

Spoiler

It didn't work too well though :( Hakimi was a ridiculously expensive right-back, but Florenzi's aging so needed to get some quality to replace him. Ndombele never managed to oust Palacios, who had a great season. McTommy was decent as reserve BWM to Tousart, and Balogh was just a 4th striker who never threatened to be much more. Toledo a useful 5th IF, and Bradaric looks good but never got a chance and has already requested a move.

356315892_Screenshot_20190707-222555_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.3d404849c0e4ea5291f5a400f0ffecfb.jpg

Real Madrid snapped up a striker and AP from me. Bamba had good potential as an IF but low Teamwork so he had to go.

So yeah, smashed the league - Juve know how I felt now in season 3!! This would look even more impressive if they hadn't got a 94th-minute winner in our match on the last day, a 3-2 loss which accounted for nearly a quarter of the goals I conceded during the league season!

The crucial game was probably this, where I got a skanky win - bloody Marcondes got sent off, but from that free-kick we headed it clear to put Balogh clean through and he repaid his transfer fee in one action!

1584427302_Screenshot_20190707-102113_FM2019Mobile.thumb.jpg.ad170725f86c6de2ae0e184e1fdfd743.jpg

No Marcondes in the Team of the Year, but at least the voters have relaxed a bit on sucking up to Juve:

In the Champions League, PSG finally got their revenge on me :( Their winner in the first leg was in the 90th minute, too.

At least we got one cup, with Cameroonian regen Mbengue capping a breakout season in style:

But we bowed out of the Coppa Italia with an entirely reserve team:

Emiliano

I was encouraged that my changes had made the desired impact as Emiliano started the season on absolute fire!

That hot start led to the first of many Team of the Month nominations:

But alas... Schick had a three-month injury which hurt us as a team, and Emiliano dried up a bit. Thank god Cutrone and Pellegri didn't do this in previous seasons, but the golden boot doesn't matter to us now:

So not bad, although not quite good enough... Indeed, take those hammerings out and he only had 19 from the other 34 games... Oh well...

Challenge

League Titles  - target was 2, we now have 5

League Top Scorer  - target was 5 and we have 5

League Goals - 176/210 - need our best season with 34 to reach Nordahl's tally

League Goals Per Game - we have a very respectable 0.7 with 176 goals from 251 games. But the target was 0.77, which would require the above 34 goals to be scored from 23 games from here! Or he needs 46 goals if he plays a full season of 38 games.

 

It's gonna be tough, but of course we'll give it a go!

 

Any Other Business?

Yes! A couple of curios that didn't quite fit in above.

First, despite winning multiple Champions League and Club World Championships, I've never had a player in the World XI. Again this year, and y'know, whatever... Except, I saw a familiar-looking kit in the corner - what the hell?!?

And otherwise, I've managed to get myself a new stadium - I'll have to add it to that leaderboard. Should probably have come up with a better name but that's life...

As always, thanks for reading!

A good read, a diffiocult season, it is going to be tough, but it would be no fun if it was easy.

SEASON 8

Transfers

Spoiler

The main change for this season was to get rid of Ünder - his shooting was too damn good! I tried to get a bit more selflessness into the team, so shipped him out. And half the squad immediately went into a sulk, oops!

He did great for me and I can highly recommend him in general - shame he had a bit of a down season for me in S7, especially after all those assists in S6.

Otherwise I sold a few troublemakers and youths:

Just two incomings - Süle is a great CB but a bit harsh on Stark who was great for me too. And I barely used the other guy, he was just coverage on the wing for me.

So, totally smashed the league as Juve floundered...

But evidently they re-tooled and "solved" me in January, ousting me in all the other tournaments:

I did still get Manager of the Year, fortunately:

Emiliano

Spoiler

He gave it a great go with a cracking season:

Shout-out to Pavon, by the way, who had an absolute stormer of a season:

Anyway, the goals per game mark wasn't going to be attainable, but with 10 games to go we needed 10 goals to reach Nordahl's mark, which was fair enough! Although unfortunately, Emiliano was one booking away from a suspension, so that would mean 10 needed from 9, probably...

Alas, our season was petering out, so we couldn't quite get it going. This late equaliser after Ndombele's idiocy left us needing 4 from the last 2...

But not only did he not score away to Inter, he also got booked, so he was suspended for the last game! An inglorious ending :(

 

But still, a great season:

And I can't be mad at that beautiful face! He is starting to age a bit now anyway...

Can't say he didn't do well:

Challenge

League Titles - we needed 2, we got 6

League Top Scorer - we needed 5, we got 6 (or five plus one tie, but job done anyway)

League Goals - 206/210

League Goals Per Game - final tally is 206 from 288 games, an average of 0.72, just shy of Nordahl's fantastic target of 0.77

 

I'm happy with that, considering he's currently a Championship player in real life who's still never scored a goal in England, and who didn't develop with training (probably already a bit old for it). And we brought some glory days back for Roma too.

I'll probably need a little time to set up my next save, but hopefully I'll be back soon - ciao for now!

It was always going to be difficult to get the goals with him as he’s not the best attribute wise for goalscoring but you had a great go at it😀

Look forward to your next career now which I think you mentioned somewhere was a DT attempt.

Unlucky mate but a great career, that only just fell short of its target, looking forward to your next one.
