Career The Impossible Challenge - Cockers2505

Recommended Posts

22 hours ago, Cockers2505 said:

I think it down to knowing the game for so long, and then you know what attributes fits each player, I mainly go for 3 main stats, Stamina, Pace and strength (so they can't be pushed off the ball so easily) and then the attributes to fit each position, so Ariel and Tackling for a CD, Shooting and Ariel for a Striker etc 

The rest is just knowing who is good for your team and who isn't, I use Scouts to only give me an opinion, but the attributes is what makes me get the player in the end, some are considered as rubbish and will not make it in your team, yet his attributes say different, so I take a chance and see how they get on, if it doesn't work, they you sell them and hopefully make a profit, no harm done.

Hope that helps in some way??

 

helps a lot. thanks!!!

Another Season passes, and plenty of silverware won so far with an another Team that I have spent ZERO, everyone completely Free (except those already in the team from previous managers).

SO how does this Season pan out, can we better the previous season, can we get the elusive Premier Title, well let me take you into the world of Chelsea Football club for another season...

As always Money is not a worry, obviously it helps so that I can raise the funds for Wages, which currently is at a healthy state as expected with a club like this...

Manager Stats as of today...

I am currently on 3 league titles, and 9 Cups in 9 Glorious seasons so far, only £232Mil sold, but the key to this story, NOTHING spent buying players...

Seasons so far...

From Curzon Ashton, to Chelsea, it has been as successful as can be, yes I could of won more maybe, but when you are buying those who are not wanted, or actually thrown to the scrap yard, well success has to be earn't the hard way, and that is hopefully what I am entertaining you all with, a good Scrap in the world of Freebies...

Lovro Majer - An attacking midfielder who could help open up the oppositions defences to assist plenty of goals.

Rodrigo Bentancur - The other part of my 2 Midfield set up, a simple all round excellent midfielder.

Tyler Adams - Not as prolific as Bentancur, but can still provide me with a solid midfield when called upon.

So how did we do throughout the season, the was the usual High's and Low's, but more high's than Low's, which is always a good sign for you as a manager...

Carabao Cup - Another season of domination, but in the end a big disappointment, Man City eventually taking the Cup with a 3-2 win after we pulled it back from 2-0 down.

800102941_Photo20-01-2020131940.png.4f796902e62be9b7cea929f268edc3b8.png

FA Cup - After reaching the final with the Carabao but loosing it at the end, we faced a strong Tottenham side in the FA Cup final.

Not exactly an emphatic win, but a win is a win, and it's more silverware coming home with me.

Jan Hurtado clinching the only goal in the 3rd minute, after that it was simply hope to not concede, but there poor 4 attempts didn't even scare the keeper.

Ezio Borello showing his class scoring an hat trick, but more about this guy in a minute.

We give them no hope by half time, 3-0 up was enough to keep us going, giving them some hope in the 62th minute, only to put it to bed in the 71st with our 4th goal, no coming back now.

Looks really good @kylieboi88, I thought about staying with Curzon Ashton, but I wanted to see if I could reach the top as soon as but without spending a penny, did this with Oldham some years ago, but it wasn't as interesting as moving clubs, it got a little repetitive for some reason.

Yeh its constant rebuild every season and some seasons I was so close to going up or down. Constantly having to adapt a new tactic which is hard sometimes. Release clause has helped me out a fair bit as additional funds have gone onto wages and facilities tbf

So the 4th Season with Chelsea is upon me, I have won the League, and all other cups so far, so what now?

I have so far won all by spending ZERO, yep nothing since the start, understandably there have been stars, even super stars already at the club, but these stars were what was letting the club down, and why the club was doing so bad, resulting in them sacking their manager, in comes myself, and I turn the around with some shrewd transfers, either complete freebies, or those who simply let do not want to renew their contract, well thats fine with me, you can join me and enjoy all the success I can offer.

The season starts with everyone on a high, can we continue to stay at the top, who can make the team any better, or can I simply strengthen it for the coming season...

Finances as always only helps with the Wage structure, £35Mil is very helpful thanks, with this and money already in the funds, a total of £711,979.00Mil would be available if I did want to buy anybody, but no thanks, reduce this by adjusting, and I get £725K in wages instead.

So out of the top 10 players in the team, apart from Ledesma, the rest of the next 7 have all been brought in on a Freebie:

First Cup comes home with us, a very boring Community Shield is played at Wembley, but the occasion is spoilt with plenty of shots, but only one goal, and scored in extra time that clinched it.

So I have basically completed the Premier League, what could possibly happen next...

Could I move to Spain and achieve the same success as I have with Chelsea, they must be doing bad if they are looking for another Manager...

Couldn't refuse it, I can now re-spark my interest in this Challenge with trying to make it with Real Madrid...

My time at Chelsea comes to an end, after 3 attempts (full seasons) I finally get the Premiership Title, and I leave them with a very strong team, and in second place.

Currently they are not doing so well in the League after 14 games, they have already lost 5 of these, and they sit in 9th position 12 points behind the leaders Athletico Madrid.

Games so far...

The start of the season was poor, not winning any Friendlies, and this continue throughout the first 2 months, before getting their first win at home Vs Ponferrada (not that hard you say), then from there they had lots of ups and downs, that has to change...

The Team.

Current Big players available:

So the side has some good players, but they have either not been firing on all cylinders, or played out of position. There are a few very unhappy players also, so the moral is not at it's best, what can I do throughout the rest of the season to change this.

Cup Games...

We got ourselves to the Final of the Spanish Cup Vs Athletico Madrid, could this be my first Trophy in my Real Career...

1559068690_Photo06-02-2020225824.png.32ddd0fd2e0f7d04273465ea713cc65e.png

A hard fought game saw us fall behind 2-0 by half time, a little tinkering with some players rejuvinated the team, finishing the game with an emphatic  4 goal haul, to win 2-4 at the final whistle.

The final table looked good for us as well, maybe we didn't take the Championship, but second place was a good result, especially as I didn't loose a game since taking over, a few draws is what let me down in the end. giving the Title away to Barcelona, but only by 4 points...

That's a lot of won trophies in a single update. I lost count so you must be doing insanely well 😃 just goes to show that most of us spend way more than necessary really. I like this idea of spending jack, and will probably incorporate it in one of my future career. 

Not sure about that regen. I suck at guessing regens. My initial thought was Dybala but your guy is Italian so that's unlikely. Maybe someone else knows.

Thanks Bati, I believe there is enough chances to get top players without the millions spent you see everyday, some people literally sell the whole squad and then spend over a billion to get a new team, when with the right tactic and some shrewd players for Free, you can win everything, and I mean everything

Fati scored 31 goals out of 43 games, with 12 assists, and came third?

Lukebakio scored 11 goals in 21 games, and 13 assists, so first of all why make the Player of the Year awards, never mind Second?

So again, another season goes by, my Career Stats are creeping up, and all along the Players Bought line STILL says £0

Can I continue to conquer Spain, maybe one more season and then move to France or Italy, maybe I can change this challenge to winning EVERYTHING in all 4 countries without spending a penny, that way I have an even better incentive to keep going...

So as always I bring in my fair share of FREE players, especially bigger players who have run of Contract, this I don't care of age or what the Scout tells me, if he looks good, then I get him. Also I mass up on youngsters who look good already, and these are usually the back bone of the future, will they bring success, only time will tell, but some certainly do not let me down, others simply do not make the grade, but earn me cash to booster my wage structure...

Another bunch of players brought in to my club on a FREEBIE, but who was worthy of a mention...

Alex Meret - GK who might be getting on at 33 yrs, but still an excellent keeper for another 2 or 3 years

Cristianno Zanotti - Right F/B with so much potential, Arsenal's loss, my gain

Pablo Maffeo - another right F/B, but w=comes with plenty of experience

Kevin Bogdan - GK who can only learn from Meret to take the reigns once he retires

Louis Bowyer - CD who is young but shows the right amount of greens to show he could turn into a brilliant Centre Half for me

Amadou Haidara - CM, but a very experienced one at that, not the quickest, but all his other stats show he is worth the gamble

Thanks @BatiGoal as always, this is honestly the most enjoyable career I have had, I think because I have an incentive, i.e win without spending a penny, but now with the thought of winning all that's available in all 4 countries, well that just gives me even more joy, especially seeing all the careers smashing all records with masses spent on their teams

It makes more sense also with your success in your 1000 Goals With A Bunch Of Amateurs because actually with the right formation and tactics, you can get (i won't say any) most players to perform reasonably well in a team of half decent players, agree??

This is epic @Cockers2505...

To do all that without buying a single player? Amazing!! Hope you go ahead and win everything in all 4 nations.

A very entertaining journey too - though I don't recommend reading it all in one sitting, took me 40 minutes! That'll teach me for not keeping up with careers... Congrats on becoming a Grandad by the way!

I gotta say - this is sort of what I was going for when I made that long way to the top challenge a couple of years ago. I get that doing it with one club is a fantastic thing in it's own right, but I really like careers where you start at the bottom and work your way up through the clubs. Might try something like that when I eventually finish my current career - but it won't be without buying anyone! 😄

A very entertaining journey too - though I don't recommend reading it all in one sitting, took me 40 minutes! That'll teach me for not keeping up with careers... Congrats on becoming a Grandad by the way!

I gotta say - this is sort of what I was going for when I made that long way to the top challenge a couple of years ago. I get that doing it with one club is a fantastic thing in it's own right, but I really like careers where you start at the bottom and work your way up through the clubs. Might try something like that when I eventually finish my current career - but it won't be without buying anyone! 😄

Thanks scratch, that's my aim now, domination throughout each country, try and win everything possible in each one, the question is can I pick up half decent players for free seeming as most will be regens and unknown as each season goes by

Great career so far ! Just had time to update. This looks amazing. Very well done! 

Thanks Anders, the tactic had stayed the same throughout which seems to suit the team I build, surprised at the results to be truthful

All of it to be honest, there is no pressure getting results because it's not as though I'm buying players for millions, putting pressure on results, so getting free players is more of a challenge because you simply don't know how they will turn out, obviously I have got players on Bosman who have turned out to be legends and worth millions, but that doesn't mean they will instantly become brilliant for me, the challenge for me is getting each player's too fit into the tactic I am using, which has stayed the same for each season, each team, each club, and it's been really enjoyable

I believe I will reach my first ever 30 years simply because I have no pressure, I have set myself even more of a challenge by adding that I want to win everything available in each country, and so far so good
