Career MikeF - Big (Double) Trouble in Little Ajax

Recommended Posts

Carrying on with the Triple Crown it's time for my Double Trouble attempt.

Managing to resist the urge to go for Esposito again (he's a beast) I've chosen a couple of other well known youngsters in this year's game. Maybe i'll go more obscure for the Triple Threat next...

First up, I've gone with Ajax. A team I didn't play in 19 so something new there. Big team in a small league should make it easy to score plenty of goals but keeping hold of good players will be tough as they'll want to move onto bigger clubs. Let's hope i can keep the main two guys for as long as is needed.

And talking of those two main guys:

IMG_8879.thumb.PNG.4af646477d93594cc35ca757271e1a3a.PNG

Both should be world class so it's a matter of scoring as many goals as possible before they insist on moving on.

 

Season 1:

Arezo before and after:

IMG_8886.thumb.PNG.8a4a07b490f9a3089e8f4ba71977bb83.PNG

 

Fati before and after:

IMG_8888.thumb.PNG.62edf09a672ebaf0a9ac125f950b24d8.PNG

 

A solid 69 goals from their first year playing together.

 

Transfers:

IMG_8894.thumb.PNG.527ae45265662e8365caeb4ac8aedcb1.PNG

Nothing particularly groundbreaking here. No huge budgets and a lot of areas to strengthen after they lost the big boys in the summer but got a solid team and moved on some without potential.

 

How we did:

IMG_8890.thumb.PNG.f7e6d351edae3d24d4eda50238344655.PNG

Stormed the league as expected but didn't even make it out of the CL group stage after drawing a complete group of death (Real, Juve and someone else i forget now)

 

Players:

IMG_8892.thumb.PNG.a3ba1ef85969a6a5d1e676c342197a79.PNG

Arezo getting a lot of assists from free kicks and knocking the ball down to Fati.

Season 2:

Season 2 was slightly better than season 1 but happy with the results still.

IMG_8905.thumb.PNG.2b9724a9d92a571f9a6cca93d45d5c92.PNG

 

Both looking good now so i'm expecting the goals to flow. Formation is still a work in progress but looking solid now for playing bigger teams too.

Transfers:

IMG_8912.thumb.PNG.307598c3dd74838c2391f6e7b11b38b1.PNG

A couple of big signings in Fernandes and Milinkovic-Savic to strengthen my midfield and give some depth. Sold a couple of decent players but needed short term gains if i'm to get more goals out of the boys.

 

Ajax:

IMG_8907.thumb.PNG.4e95ae48d777d7e908000f31a597b50c.PNG 

Better luck in the CL this year losing to Real Madrid in the semis but coming close.

 

Players:

IMG_8909.thumb.PNG.d735ea05006602e5219ee3fce9aaf6c0.PNG

Haven't used Vignato before but have seen others do well with him and he's certainly delivering. He's on corners for me but a good return regardless.

 

Me:

IMG_8910.thumb.PNG.e291247bb74fb0ab643a09d414327944.PNG

Net spend is good, stats all average for now but it's early in the save. At least my transfer acumen is above 3 ;)

 

End of Season 2:

Goals: 74 (43+31)

Total 143/1200

To go: 1057

Great work Mike both seasons seems to work pretty good

I'm surprised you were able to afford Milinkovic-Savic's wages. Done well there. Great start! 

yeah me too tbh. Even Gedson Fernandes one also pretty huge to afford

Savic is on 140k/week. I moved a lot of my budget into wages to get him. Fernandes was actually quite cheap as he was unhappy. I got him on loan first and when he liked me i made him permanent. A la Spurs ;)

Season 3

Not the best season here with regards to goals. I'd expect more goals by the third season but at least we did well in tournaments getting far in the CL.

IMG_8991.thumb.PNG.fc4f40dea3e39d6c0716ad1c3b952774.PNG

The lads have come on well and are looking good together, I just need more goals. I was trying a new formation this year for 2 up front but don't like the return so will give me previous one a spin this coming season and see how it compares.

 

Transfers:

IMG_8997.thumb.PNG.6386d6f1ed0f36780d0503b6d919d1c1.PNG

IMG_8998.thumb.PNG.c10c20cfb80e350b208c457fefd8b9ee.PNG

Davies and Skriniar were two big signings i made. Skriniar was unhappy so got him cheap, Davies is still young. Players are getting unsettled fast if a big team comes in for them so i can see my turnover being higher than usual here with a smaller status league.

 

Ajax:

Great league performance and got to the CL final where Real whipped me.

Season 4

First season going back to my previous DT formation. The return from the front two was better but overall results were marginally worse (very tough CL run didn't help). Goals is what i need so i'll stick with this again.

IMG_9007.thumb.PNG.a69a99fdc9e1ba6e9087d76d9972c03f.PNG

 

With the new aerial restrictions i think they're not getting any better in the air but they're looking good for 19/20 years old and still developing.

 

Transfers:

Savic was unsettled when Chelsea came in for him so had to sell and the same with Wijndal. He went for cheap (was worth over £100m when he moved to Barca) but kicked up a fuss wanting to move, and then got an 11 month spinal injury. Shame.

Ndidi needed for my new formation. Pellegrini to replace Wijndal and Traore for depth in centre mid. Nothing groundbreaking here.

 

Ajax:

IMG_9009.thumb.PNG.6d41100490bbad6813e2fa63aa2a46c9.PNG

Scored fewer goals but more came from the strikers so i'm ok with that.

Shame you had to lose Wijndal. I’m enjoying an AZ save and he is an absolute beast. Wants to leave constantly but he is still delivering. Should have held out for more £!

I’ve got a buy back clause of £40m so he’ll end up back with me at some point I’m sure when he gets upset with Barca not playing him.
