Career Ian - The Terrifying Trio - TT - Tekin 1kc - S23 (Completed)

Recommended Posts

Season Eleven

We had a better campaign last year as the boys hit 117 goals between them so more of the same is required here. 

Lets see how they got on.

The Terrifying Trio

Jan Thielmann

A slightly better return for Jan as he netted 33 goals in 55 games. He managed a full campaign without any injuries which always helps.

Fabio Lorenzini

Fabio also had a better year with 37 goals in 49 games which is decent and if Tekin can repeat his exploits from last season we’ll be on for a great total.

Emincan Tekin

Well Tekin couldn’t get anywhere near to matching his total from last season and had to make do with 44 goals in 54 games. Last year he was up the middle in my system all season but this year I rotated them which is the main reason the totals are closer I’d say.

Team Performances

As has become the norm we won the lot in a dominant campaign. We drew just one league game so the perfect season would’ve been the icing on the cake but can’t have everything I suppose.

League

No messing about here as we scored 119 goals and only conceded 8 as we blasted through the opposition to comfortably win the league as usual.

Supertaça

We could only manage a 2-0 win here with Fabio scoring one of them from the spot.

European Super Cup

Dortmund were beaten 2-1 and again it was Fabio with one of the goals. We were much the better side but lost concentration towards the end and conceded a late consolation goal.

Club World Championship

We hammered Beijing 7-0 in the final but our trio were only responsible for three of the goals with was slightly disappointing.

League Cup

No problems in this final as Rio Ave were put to the sword in a 4-0 win with Fabio and Jan the Man responsible for three of the goals.

Taça de Portugal

We just couldn’t convert our chances in this game and it took a last minute winner from Tekin to get the job done.

Champions League

Again this final was hard work and we had to make do with a 1-0 victory and no goals from the Terrifying Trio.

Fixtures

We never came close to the Gundogan Victory challenge this season as we had no 8-0 or 9-0 results but I do hope to get this at some point before FMM20 drops.

Score

This Season/Overall (Goals)

Jan Thielmann: 33/306

Fabio Lorenzini: 37/316

Emincan Tekin: 44/386

This Season Total: 114 goals

Triple Threat Total: 1008/1500 goals

Conclusion

A slight drop off in goals from last season but can’t complain as we are still in the right ballpark. I’m still hopeful of hitting over 120 goals in at least one of the seasons and want to complete the Gundogan Victory challenge so those remain the targets now as well as the TT of course.

Thanks for reading and all comments are greatly appreciated.

Season Twelve

Our three boys are doing ok and are slowly closing in on their target. If we can keep the goals in the 100-130 range most seasons we’ll have no trouble provided we can get them to all to sign new long term deals which is now my focus as they are getting to their late twenties.

The Terrifying Trio

Jan Thielmann

Jan scored 33 goals in 52 games which is the same number of goals as last season but it took him a few less games as he suffered a small injury this year.

Fabio Lorenzini

Fabio managed a nice 39 goals in 53 games as he managed more game time this season.

Emincan Tekin

Emincan had a poor season for him in only scoring 37 goals in 50 games but we’ll give him the benefit of doubt as he did miss a few games through injury.

So our trio only scored 109 goals this season which is a drop off but I think that’s largely down to Tekin who failed to perform as expected and suffered a small injury. No need to panic as we are still on course. I managed to get Fabio to sign a new five year deal at the end of the season so if I can just get the other two to follow suit next year I’ll be rather happy as it’s always a worry that they might want to up sticks and leave and I’d rather avoid that sort of drama if I could.

Transfers

I feel there’s no need to go through the transfers at the stage but they are all listed below.

Team Performances

We won the lot again and only drew two league games. We are definitely at the domination stage now I’d say.

League

The league was won without any trouble as usual. We drew two games as mentioned and finished the season with a nice goal difference of 99.

Supertaça

Two members of our trio scored the goals which won us the cup in a 2-0 win over Braga.

European Super Cup

We weren’t magnificent in this game but were clinical as we took most of our chances and won 5-1 against Bayern Munich. We would’ve liked more goals from our trio but can’t have everything.

Club World Championship

We dominated New York City in the final but could only score the two goals which was slightly disappointing as I find these games can often make or break your season in goalscoring challenges.

League Cup

Again the domination was there but the goals weren’t as we had to make do with just a 2-0 win over Vit. Setúbal with no goals from our trio.

Taça de Portugal

Another frustrating final as our boys left their shooting boots at home as Vit. Guimarães took us to extra time before we finally kicked into gear and got a couple of goals to get the job done.

Champions League

We performed well here as we had Dias sent off early and still managed to dominate PSG. Of course we couldn’t get a big win but a solitary goal from back up striker Fabio Silva was enough for us to claim victory.

Fixtures

The Gündogan Victory Challenge eluded me again this season and annoyingly we had the often tricky 8-0 and 9-0 victories but just couldn’t get the 7-0. We’ll go again next season.

Manager

My transfer acumen is poor again on this save which seems to be a running thing for me. If I sign a player and he doesn’t hit the ground running then I tend to just accept it and get rid and on saves where plenty of money is available it gets worse as I’m often really cautious and buy back up players that would only ever feature if about three players were to get injured.

Score

This Season/Overall (Goals)

Jan Thielmann: 33/339

Fabio Lorenzini: 39/355

Emincan Tekin: 37/423

This Season Total: 109 goals

Triple Threat Total: 1117/1500 goals

Conclusion

A slight drop off in goals as previously mentioned but it’s fine with me as I felt we weren’t far away and I have no doubt we can do better in a few of the seasons left. 

I’ve completed the next season also and the original plan was to do a two seasons in one update here but with all the scrolling for images I’ve decided to keep it at one. I will however be back tomorrow with the Season 13 update.

Thanks for reading and all comments are appreciated.

Thank you Smoggy, yes the end is in sight. The boys have developed some great attributes in places but they aren’t world beaters. In some ways it helps as I haven’t had any offers come in for them or any unhappiness which can often be a pain on these challenges.

Season Thirteen

Last season we had a slightly poor season with our boys only scoring 109 goals so our aim for this season was to improve on that and get closer to 120.

The Terrifying Trio

Jan Thielmann

Jan appears to have had a poor season as he only scored 26 goals but a two month layoff meant he only played in 45 games which is rather low for him.

Fabio Lorenzini

Fab hit a nice 41 goals in 51 games in a great campaign from him.

Emincan Tekin

Emincan knocked home a fantastic 52 goals in 56 games to get himself back up to the bigger numbers.

Our trio hit home a combined 119 goals this season which is just one short of our 120 goal season target which seems more than doable now. We managed to get all of our boys tied down on long term contracts so that should be enough time to see us home baring any major disasters.

Transfers

Team Performances

We had a great domestic campaign but lost out in the European Super Cup on penalties against Chelsea. I’ve actually missed the Club World Championship on the shot but we did win it as you’ll see if you read my more detailed season report below.

League

We scored a whopping 120 goals this season as we swept through the opposition in some style. We did have a couple of hiccups with a draw and defeat but with a goal difference of 105 we can only be happy.

Supertaça

A dominant display sees us beat Vit. Guimarães 4-1 with Fab and Tekin scoring a goal each.

European Super Cup

We lost out on penalties to Chelsea in this one as we just couldn’t get going in the game. Never mind you can’t win them all.

Club World Championship

River Plate didn’t put up much of a fight as we ploughed through then to secure a 4-1 victory with Tekin netting two of the goals.

League Cup

Two goals from Jan the man and one from Tekin helped us to a 5-0 win in the final against Vit. Setúbal.

Taça de Portugal

We had no trouble here but it was a shame to concede as we beat Belenenses 5-1 in the final.

Champions League

We weren’t at our best here but managed to get the job done as we were rather clinical in front of goal. Anyway Arsenal were beaten 2-0 and Tekin managed one of them so happy days.

Fixtures

Nowhere near to completing the Gündogan Victory Challenge this year and I’m almost resigned to the fact we won’t manage it on this career. Won’t stop trying though and next season we’ll be going for it again.

Score

This Season/Overall (Goals)

Jan Thielmann: 26/365

Fabio Lorenzini: 41/396

Emincan Tekin: 52/475

This Season Total: 119 goals

Triple Threat Total: 1236/1500 goals

Conclusion

A great season in every way as not only did our trio produce a fine season on the pitch they also all signed new long term deals as I mentioned earlier which was greeted with celebrations by myself as there was always the worry that they might want to leave or retire early but now we can eliminate those worries.

So basically we need our trio to score 264 goals in four seasons which you’d think is more than enough time unless we have some horrible bad luck.

Thanks for reading and comments are greatly appreciated.

Season Fourteen

Our three beauties are closing in on their target and it’s almost gaurenteed that they’ll get there so we are kind of in pre celebration mode at the moment. I won’t let the boys rest on their laurels though and I’ll keep pushing them to do as best as they can as we haven’t managed to get a combined total of over 120 goals in any of our seasons and I can’t help but think that it’s more than possible. 

Transfers

No point in going through them at this stage but here they all are below.

Team Performances

We managed to win all of the competitions we competed in this season which was nice after last seasons horror show in the European Super Cup. The league as usual was a walk in the park as we went unbeaten and only drew two games. We scored a tidy 117 goals and only conceded nine. When you think that the team that scored the next highest amount of goals only managed 62 you can see the dominance we had this year.

We actually conceded three goals in the curtain raiser against Belenenses in the Supertaça in a 5-3 win with all of the goals coming from the Terrifying Trio. It was a strange game as they only had four shots with three of them ending up in the net and I hate conceding so I wasn’t overly impressed I have to say.

Manchester United were our opponents in the European Super Cup and they took an early lead as we left our shooting boots at home. We managed to score theee goals from only three shots on target to win 3-1 so guess we can call ourselves a touch lucky.

The Club World Championship was won as usual as we beat Cor 4-0 in a rather one sided affair. Only two of the goals came from our trio which was the only real negative. 

We played rivals Porto in the League Cup final and I’d love to tell you it was a battle between two giants but unfortunately it wasn’t as we played them off the park. They only had one shot in a game that ended 2-0 to us.

Jan the man and Tekin were amongst the goals as we made light work of Vit. Guimarães in a 4-1 victory in the final of the Taça de Portugal. 

We made the final of the Champions League where Spurs awaited us. It was fairly comfortable as we won 3-0 with Fabio netting one of the goals.

Fixtures

As I’ve mentioned a few times I’ve been keeping an eye on the chance of completing the Gündogan Victory Challenge and after romping to a 9-0 victory against Braga early in the season I genuinely thought this would be our year. It didn’t pan out that way though as in the end we were lacking an 8-0 result. The most annoying match was when we beat Ac. Viseu 10-0 which was an unneeded result, I just couldn’t stop them scoring unfortunately.

Full fixture list below.

The Terrifying Trio

Jan Thielmann

Jan netted a nice 38 goals this season in 56 games in a great campaign from him. He’s just turned 30 now so you could say he’s right at the end of his peak.

FB476F27-BEA5-451F-83FF-5E84F93777DC.thumb.png.d215a569686e29c49a7b69c061c99ddf.png

Fabio Lorenzini

Another great campaign for Fabio as he knocked home 41 goals which gives us a great chance of hitting over 120 goals this year. Stamina has always been the main stumbling block for him as 12 is just not what we are after but he’s done and is still doing well so no complaints.

Emincan Tekin

Emincan has been the main man from our trio in terms of goals and he didn’t disappoint this year as he netted 45 goals to give us a combined total of 124 goals which is our best yet and over my target of 120 so I’m pretty happy with that.

Triple Threat Total: 1360/1500 goals

Conclusion

A great season as our boys combined to score a whopping 124 goals which puts us only 140 away from the triple threat total of 1500 goals. 

One and a bit seasons and you’d expect this to be completed and then I’ll need to decide whether to continue on or just call it a day at the limit. It doesn’t look like Tekin has a 1kc in him but suppose I might have a better chance of completing the Gündogan in a formation that’s not three up top so it will be a tough decision when the time comes.

Thanks for reading and comments are greatly appreciated.

Season Fifteen

We just need 140 goals to complete this thing and plenty of time so I’m totally certain there won’t be any drama here but we still have to play it out and then I can decide if there’s anything else I want to try and achieve on this save.

Let’s see how close the boys got to their target this season.

The Terrifying Trio

Jan Thielmann

He scored 30 goals in a fairly decent season for him. He’s just turned 31 and will probably start to decline soon but that shouldn’t hinder us at this stage.

6EDCFF81-17B7-40E1-A5E5-15B80D589E67.thumb.png.add194ac55b1adc561c3a687776f7d47.png

20CC5D0F-3FE2-4DA4-84BB-DF7EFB907CB6.thumb.png.31fc936ca6ebff7985deacaa9888ae7a.png

Fabio Lorenzini

Fabio had a poor campaign in only managing 24 goals. He did have a couple of little injuries but even accounting for those his return was still poor as he managed to play in 46 games by the end of the season. He’s about to turn 31 and his attributes appear to be slightly declining as you’d expect.

FF738124-05C6-424D-82B7-7DA186679199.thumb.png.1688202230c347458698e70ef8949813.png

Emincan Tekin

Tekin knocked home a nice 52 goals in 54 games which I’m happy with as its nearly a goal per game ratio. His stamina looks like it might be declining but the other two guys have “likely to decline soon” in their coaching report but he hasn’t so maybe he can play to a high level well into his later years.

3D94ABDB-A5F7-4BA2-90AF-8ABECA7935D2.thumb.png.cdf28a674cab37861c93537ee9cee809.png

So our trio hit a combined 116 goals this season which puts us just 34 goals shy of our target. We’ll get those next season I’m pretty sure.

Transfers

I won’t go through them but a few younger lads came in as we have a few ageing players who could decline at any moment and I don’t want to get caught out if possible.

Full list below.

Team Performances

A poor league campaign for the team this year as some of the younger boys I brought in just don’t seem quite ready yet so there were a few rather frustrating draws. Still took the league fairly easily so no reason to be too downbeat.

In the first tinpot trophy of the season we beat Vit. Guimarães 2-0 with Fabio and Tekin scoring a goal each. It wasn’t quite so plain sailing as they gave a good account of themselves.

In the European Super Cup we hammered Freiburg 5-2 with a goal coming from each of our trio. The two goals conceded were a bit annoying as they seemed sloppy and I hate conceding at the best of times.

We totally dominated Shabab-Al-Ahlu Dubai in the Club World Championship but had to make do with just a 1-0 victory.

We played old foe Vit. Guimarães in the League Cup Final and were frustratingly held to a 1-1 draw before managing to get the job done in a penalty shootout.

Braga were defeated in the Taça de Portugal but again it was a struggle as it took a fairly late goal to seal a 2-1 win.

We were relatively lucky in the Champions League Final as going by the match stats you’d have to say Real more than matched us. We however were rather clinical in front of goal as we scored five goals with Tekin netting a brace in a 5-1 win.

So a nice clean sweep of trophies but with less domination than in plenty of our previous seasons.

Score

This Season/Overall (Goals)

Jan Thielmann: 40/433

Fabio Lorenzini: 24/461

Emincan Tekin: 52/572

This Season Total: 116 goals

Triple Threat Total: 1466/1500 goals

So with that we only need 34 goals next season to seal the deal and I’m certain we’ll do it but you’ll have to wait a few days for confirmation I’m afraid.

I’m already trying to decide where to go next with this save. I could carry on the triple threat and increase our total until one retires. You’d think we could get another 250-400 goals but I’m not sure it’d make much difference to me as it’d still not be an earth shattering total. I could just end it at the total and call it a day or I could go for a rather ambitious attempt at getting Tekin to 1000 goals. He needs 428 goals at the moment and is going to turn 31 early next season so will definitely start to decline soon. It’s a tricky one as we’ve seen a few players lately play really well late into their thirties including my own 1kc guy Jun Se-Jin. 

I’ll keep thinking but we’ve still got the triple threat to complete so that is the main focus for now.

Thanks for reading and comments are greatly appreciated.

Another cracking season mate. Very close to the finishing line. You may carry on till 2000 goals as that will be an interesting target to reach.

Love it. One more season and then it is passed. It’ll be only then that you’ll know if you have the desire to continue.
