Career Schwantz tries the Shearer Challenge

Recommended Posts

· Posted (edited)

I liked the look of this challenge so this will be my attempt at it! I've chosen Newcastle because I have a soft spot for them and it's where Shearer himself scored many of his goals and ended his playing career. My player of choice for this is going to be young Danny Loader who I have signed from Reading. He's only 18 so has time on his side to improve too.

These are the tactics I'll be using but are open to change. Through pre-season I'm already thinking the defence may be a little too aggressive so might need to dial that back a bit. Also thinking I might end up running with two CM and not one as a BBM but I'll give it a few games before I change that.

Only 6 games in and getting battered.

Switching to my own tactic from here to try and stop leaking a load more goals;

Still not working. Newcastle are really poor but I have had success with them before. My tactic worked for a couple of games then back to getting beat. Loader is scoring at a good rate but I need to avoid getting sacked.

Trying a 4-3-3 wide setup next 🤣

I’m sure you’ll hit on something eventually, got to be something there with all the tactic testing you do.

Has to be one of your own though I think the rules said? If not I'd have just used a go to one from here ha ha. Currently using my second tactic I made and put on here for a guy trying to re-create O'Leary's Leeds. It's a 4-4-2 so hopefully less leaky. Loader is still scoring well regardless but I do need to stay in the job. Had a mini clear out in January as well and added players so that should help.

I struggled last season with them massively but came good in the end

So season 1 is over and I managed to rescue it with my tactic (along with a big January squad revamp) from this thread;

Anyway on to the results and goals. Loader did very well in his debut season despite me almost derailing it with two very leaky tactics up until January. He came out with 21 Premier League goals;

As for the team this is how it panned out;

Season 2

Finished and it's taken a while due to me dipping in and out of various saves. I changed tactic again a few games into this season and I'll be sticking with it going forward, because through playing around I stumbled on a tactic that won me the title and still got Loader 20 goals! I did start with 2 up top and that's why I brought in Schick who then ended up rotating with Saint-Maximin in the front wide areas. I would like more goals for Loader of course because right now he's only on course to tie Shearer's record. Will see how the tactic does season 3 and will tweak the instructions and roles to try and get more from him if needed. Anyway here's season 2, Champions!

Season 3

 

Got 12 more points than my title winning season and still didn't retain, finishing 2nd on goal difference 🤣

The Tactic is still the 4-3-3 I created and results wise it's very very good! Impressed myself at how solid it's been for me and now I might end up using it on other saves. Defensively it's been excellent again, only giving up a measly 14 goals in the league. The problem is Loader has again gone over 20 goals but only just in bagging 21. It's a good return again but I need him to do more to get to Shearer's numbers faster.

[Edit]

Just noticed there's a game out of shot in the bottom photo. That's a Champions League final loss to PSG 1-2.

On course to manage Shearer's goal tally a season before he did if my maths are right but I'm hoping Loader picks it up a bit now. He seems to go through spells of not scoring. During this season I think he was on 17 goals in February or around that time and I thought he was flying because of his match ratings being so high. He then only got 4 more league goals in 3 months. I'm still hopeful that he will start going over 25 a season soon but we'll see.

*Mini update*

Early in season 4 Loader picked up his first real injury so he's missed a few games, but came back with a bang!

Also for season 4 I've made some tactic tweaks to try and get more goals from Loader. I've taken off shoot on sight which seems to help, also changed passing to mixed and the focus to both flanks in the hope they will assist more than shoot now they don't do it on sight.

Shape and everything else are still the same as the 4-3-3 I showed on earlier posts.

[Edit]

Uh oh he's out again, though not as long this time but will still miss some games. Hope this isn't going to suddenly become a regular occurrence.

Loader is again having a lull in the second half of the season. Currently on 17 league goals then this happens;

Hoping to get him back for one or two games but it looks unlikely. It's probably season over for him.

Season 4

I did get Loader back but not until the FA Cup final so no more league goals and he stayed on the 17 he had when he got the final injury of the season. I'm optimistic for season 5 though because the team scored more than they have in the previous seasons and created more chances, so had he been fit I think Loader would have got 25+ goals. Added to the fact he missed 11 matches through injury.

Here's how the season went;

So it's a League and Cup double and another big improvement in points come the end of the season. The Loader injuries have hampered the goal tally but the improvements following the tactic tweak bode well for season 5 if he stays fit.

Decent player development over the past 4 seasons. Hopefully Aerial and Decisions go up a bit more in the coming years. But he'll grab that record easily. Question is by how much.

Looking good, I have used this player before, and he does do well in previous versions, maybe train him as a Target striker to improve his Arial as @BatiGoal suggested, otherwise another year should see him getting improved results, good luck

I think he'd have had a great season 4 if the injuries hadn't disrupted and then curtailed it. Missed 11 games.

He's worth over £100m on a Leeds save I have, but on that one I signed him two or three seasons in I think.

Season 5

Loader has taken off in a big way! This is either a freak season or he's going to do this regularly now as he's hit 37 league goals in 37 league games! Unbelievable Jeff!

7ntIeK6.jpg

I didn't alter the tactics from the tweaks I made to my 4-3-3 in season 3 so I'm surprised he's taken off so spectacularly all of a sudden but I'll certainly take it! I thought he'd go over 25 eventually as I said in previous posts, but not by the amount that he's gone over 25 here! Big question clearly now is can he keep this up? Well you and I will see as this record attempt progresses!

Here's Loader's season;

[Edit]

This was one I'd arranged but ran out of time for in January. Schick asked to move and a bid came in so I accepted and instantly went to get Campbell to replace him, only both deals fell through as it went beyond the transfer window. I then went back and arranged the Campbell deal again but to go through after the season, so I'm adding it here as it won't show up on next seasons transfers. I'll be offloading Schick since he wants out but he's likely going once the new season kicks in.

Little gutted I didn't get the FA Cup hat-trick and disappointed to go out of the Champions League in the first knockout stage. The disappointments however are completely offset by the whole point of this career and that's Danny Loader goals, and boy has he delivered this season!

Season 6

I lost Loader to injury two games before the end of the league season and he also missed the FA Cup Final, but still knocked in 30 league goals and Campbell deputised well so that's turned out to be a good bit of business. The two signings made in January also helped immensely and although one was very expensive in Diaby, he'll be around a long time as he's only 25. The other January signing Romero has been brilliant at the back and was brought in with Stark moving into his 30's. Premier League winners again and with an unbeaten season! Gutted we didn't get the FA Cup though because I love that competition. The Champions League went to extra time and with Loader having an off game Aouar and Scott stepped up and won us the big prize! Had another good season has Loader and whilst not hitting the 37 goal highs of last season, he's still added another 30 to the challenge haul and made more assists than he ever has before!

Here's Loader's season;

Well on course to topple Shearer and now that Loader has hit 30 or more twice, I could be looking at a good score on the leader board for others to have a go at.
