Career Rob’s Geubbels 2k?!? attempt - Season 16

Recommended Posts

· Posted (edited)

Along with Haaland and Silva, Willem Geubbels is one of the best young strikers in the game. He is also the player I have chosen for my attempt at a 1.5k in this year’s version of the game. I’ve hit 1kc last year with a striker and 1kc with a midfielder twice this year, but never managed 1.5kc.

I’ve been working on a methodology for this for a while...trialling a few tactics, teams, player countries, and transfer strategies over a few months as I wanted to make the transition from Strikerless careers to striker careers.

I’ve chosen Geubbels and PSG for the obvious reasons that Geubbels is young and excellent and PSG are wealthy and in an easier league, but also because in most of my saves the France job becomes available after a few games so I will be in a good position to get it. I’ve never gotten 1.5kc before so I wanted to give myself the best chance.

I also want to apologise to Kyle for posting a career similar to his, but I’ve had this in the works for a while and a few guys on here have known about it for a while. I’ve actually just finished Season 9.

Thanks for reading. Season 1 to follow shortly.

Good luck man! I can vouch that you’ve chosen a world class striker there! 

It will be interesting to see how he does for you in your career. #TeamWillem

Your tactic is much more radical than mine and you are utterly smashing it. Love the hashtag there. Thanks!

Sounds like you have it all mapped out but 1.5k is a lot of goals so good luck.

Thanks V#1 (hopefully that still annoys Sam)

Season One

I am not going to lie - these updates will be bland. 

Transfers:

1D778D6F-755D-477F-87F0-9C3A2264DE91.thumb.jpeg.ab8a13bae35e394e7d57420560501139.jpegF057B3CC-A903-40D3-AEF6-18A9B32B86C3.thumb.jpeg.776cd27edaa73fbe584a08ddebd73daa.jpegE278CEF8-5BDB-4933-AC01-E932F49459E9.thumb.jpeg.c17e08aa3bf3ab113062c5c2422135b5.jpeg341AAF56-46F0-470F-ADFC-22EEE2DCF88C.thumb.jpeg.5646918a35480c84c12513f26c50a9d0.jpeg

Loads, basically. We all know the players so I shaln’t bore anyone.

Tournaments:

081D3A27-1AAC-4A85-BA6F-4BF3EC0BDC08.thumb.jpeg.c0a5c5877aa5ad882cba2ee3a64b88d4.jpegD0309F6D-D64D-4365-970B-5766FC3395E1.thumb.jpeg.de54addaacea6deefbd64913795cc95b.jpeg65DAB8E9-E52D-45AE-91C2-FC3793B979D0.thumb.jpeg.46595f384f14a8237de87bb7c562e5af.jpeg802347EF-26A7-4FFF-803E-EE4F3F24FA9A.thumb.jpeg.b092a4f58e0a8cd82a7bf7518eb1b145.jpeg

Won all, with Geubbels scoring in each of the finals. I forgot to screenshot the charity shield or whatever it’s called in France.

The main thing of note that happened this season was this:

6510F2B4-63C1-4ABE-B217-0F63E21ECB96.thumb.jpeg.6a4b4ace183f551c48ac1f59084067fc.jpeg

At the point they wanted me to perform better I had won every game except for one... which I drew. #realism

As for Geubbels, here is how he looked:

58602EAA-43E7-4DB0-BD7B-A84B8BBD92CD.thumb.jpeg.cae4aa5c22d955aa6d0d3dd35e4df041.jpeg

Decent. And here is how he did:

EBF3A29B-16E0-4855-A7CC-D7B0934BB3E7.thumb.jpeg.ff69ca317fffc7ffec86c460a9e276cb.jpeg

More than a goal per game average, which I didn’t expect to get this early.

Thanks for reading.

What a fantastic first season that is Rob.

Some quality transfer action going on and what an absolute steal Pavón is at £9.5m

I’m on the original DB so that may be why he appears a steal 😂

Season Two

68 in season one. Could Geubbels beat it?

Transfers:

237AF6A7-64F8-4217-86C6-0903E1451C4E.thumb.jpeg.5ea89011cef1bbc20fe43af376e76f54.jpegE831976F-C434-4ED8-953B-41ACF5EAA97A.thumb.jpeg.853e13c1c062615e1c3ac122fb62c6a4.jpeg

Pogba was the main one.

Competitions:

A42022D3-6228-4A1A-AF20-E639C571BAC2.thumb.jpeg.0ef1d390b494125b7dd4ace9dc89535e.jpeg384AD980-D753-4121-AF32-9458AFD531B6.thumb.jpeg.bb30b8683266a7438d4937178f28ccd9.jpeg70F200BD-9EBF-4A40-9F69-5DBE18E52056.thumb.jpeg.336fe6cd95a88fb4c28cc26145518eb7.jpeg67A9F67C-1580-4004-8D2A-B08B3E805871.thumb.jpeg.5f13cb7b87e030799093de62de33eee5.jpeg86F8F87A-3E63-4F48-B551-77AC20B0AD9C.thumb.jpeg.0568b5f1678ced806ae12accd23db2db.jpeg115EFC3F-5CB2-4069-8086-7FB239EAAE31.thumb.jpeg.8043745ed46df72fdeae05f26aba9965.jpeg799DFA78-D3C6-44A2-AB77-7FBDD91C4A76.thumb.jpeg.de810205d56de26c38a3b1257319af28.jpeg

A bit mixed, but that doesn’t really matter. Lost six in the league as I strongly introduced squad rotation. We retained the CL, importantly.

As for Geubbels, here is him at the end of the season:

C44F0117-F49C-4F96-A153-A7D105FD4254.thumb.jpeg.b89829d4fd6592588622a418461f0c32.jpeg

And his goals:

67 this year. At least he is consistent.

Another excellent season Rob. I can see him being rather tasty when he gets into his twenties.
