Career Ian - La Masia Double Trouble - Final Update

Recommended Posts

Season 8

We had a less than great season for our duo last year to the tune of a combined 30 goal drop much to the disappointment of all concerned but as I also said last time out we’re kind of in transition as we have the older players who are all around their peak years and then a fair few younger chaps that need to be developed. If I don’t develop the younger players I feel we’ll end up in a right mess later on as I can’t make incoming transfers apart from the youth graduates every year. I have the utmost confidence in the youngsters and how they’ll turn out given the chance so that’s how I’m approaching this now so if that means a few slightly poor seasons then so be it.

 

Transfers

Not much action here and even the two money outgoings were from the end of the previous season. The two youth graduates look decent but we’re a fairly long way into this now so if they end up being important first team players I’m guessing we’ll have gone long. I’ll show you how a few of the better graduates we’ve brought through over the years have developed on the next update.

Team Results

The team had a great season in going unbeaten in all competitions albeit the league goal total wasn’t quite up there with our best. We were very dominant but not quite so much when it comes to the big score lines, probably sounds awful really as 133 league goals is great but we’ve had 156 previously on this save so you can see where I’m coming from.

The Duo

An early season injury for Abel.

Double trouble in this special game in January.

Fati this time with a little injury.

The duo had a very similar season to last year as they combined to score 73 goals so three less than last time out although in three less games played. Separate it out and it was Abel with 36 goals and 13 assists and Ansu with 37 goals and 21 assists so we’re now totalling 625 goals for the double trouble challenge. Long way to go but I’m still confident as I know we can hit those higher returns if things are right with the squad and I’m still hopeful that we’ll get things right with enough time left. The good thing for me is that it’s quite an enjoyable save because there’s a challenge there as sometimes things can get boring on these long saves when it becomes obvious you’ll do it. In saying all of this I really feel we need to be back up into the 90’s next season otherwise I’ll be starting to worry.

Season 9

Before I update you on how season nine went I thought now would be the time to explain my motivation for completing this Double Trouble attempt. Last year I completed the Vibe Triple Crown, to do so you need to complete the three main goal scoring challenges on Vibe with the 1000 Goal, Double Trouble and Triple Threat being the said challenges. As most will probably remember from last year's game it was incredibly easy to increase practically any players aerial up to 20 and even if they only started on about 3, nothing wrong with that and it’s not against any rules but it didn’t sit so well with me that both my DT and TT attempts were so reliant on that feature. I’d used really poor players for those attempts, well apart from Jun Se Jin who was one of my DT guys and very good but the others were all very rough and the aerial thing made them decent. I just have no confidence that I’d have completed either challenge with the tactics I’d used without the feature so I’m on a mission now to complete both a DT and a TT without any aerial increases for my challengers. I’ve got my DT going here and my TT on the battle for goals H2H2H2H2 and I’ve managed to prevent any of my players increasing in aerial so now I just need to complete the challenges. It’s a wee bit harder now to increase aerial, you often can’t max it out but it can still be increased and don’t worry this isn’t a permanent thing for me as I’ll be back trying to increase it on later attempts at stuff I’m sure as you need it to get a really good score on some challenges, for now though my focus is on this and my TT and hopefully I can complete the two challenges.

Now onto the job at hand which is updating you on how season nine went.

We’d had two relatively poor seasons going into this year so the hope was that we’d have an improved season with a better return from our duo to get us back on track. I’d mentioned last time out that we are bringing a few younger players into the fold so I thought I’d show you a few of the said players.

 

Youngsters

These are some of the best youngsters we’ve brought through the academy, you can see they are pretty good but as I’ve said previously they are still young and inexperienced. I’m pretty sure in a few years most of them will be truly great and we just need to wait it out. I’ve included Moriba too even though he’s no regen because he’s such a good youngster and you can see how well he’s developed over the years.

Transfers

Nothing much of note going on here other than a few graduates coming in with the two below being the best of the bunch.

Team Results

We had a great campaign in going unbeaten in the league and scoring a nice 150 league goals. The only blot was our defeat in the Spanish Cup to Valencia in the fifth round but all in all a great season for the team.

The Duo

The duo combined well in this 8-1 victory over Villarreal.

We had another great game against Mallorca with both of our duo and Emerson all scoring a hat trick each in a 12-0 victory. I believe that might’ve equalled a record in the record store so I’ll head over there later and check.

Ansu Fati

Ansu got back to the big time with 52 goals in 52 games and at 25 I really feel he’s arriving at his peak so hopefully a few more good years like this and we’ll be well on our way. I managed to get him tied down for the next five years too which was pleasing.

Abel Ruiz

Abel also had a much better season as he found the net 48 times in 51 games so a combined total of 100 which is right where we need to be. Ruiz like Fati also signed up for another five seasons so hopefully another five seasons of quality double trouble action. Anyway, we have 725 goals in total so far and I’d like to think we can do this but without the incoming transfers we just can’t be sure as we’ve lost a lot of control over the squad.

I haven’t updated this in a good while, I hadn’t forgotten about it but just had a lot of other careers going and this has kind of taken a back seat. This one is probably not the most interesting career but I’m determined to conclude it so here I am with the next update.

As a quick recap; I’m going for the double trouble challenge, so 1200 goals required from two strikers. My strikers were Ansu Fati and Abel Ruiz, my club was Barcelona and we’ve played nine seasons and scored 725 goals so it’s looking fairly good that we’ll hit the target but I chose not to make any transfers so it’s not a foregone conclusion by any stretch of the imagination.

I thought I’d bring you three seasons at once to somewhat catch us up.

 

Season 10

These were the better games for our duo where they sparkled.

We won all competitions this year and scored a decent amount of team goals.

Our duo scored 89 goals between them which is a bit down on last year but a three month injury to Ruiz didn’t exactly help our cause.

Season 11

It’s safe to say we won the bragging rights after this 11-2 victory over city rivals Espanyol. It was a bit of an annoying game though as when you score 11 and your strikers only contribute two of the goals you’re thinking what could have been!

No clean sweep this year but a solid enough campaign with a hefty 148 league goals.

The duo hit 88 goals so a little lower than we’d ideally like but both suffered a few knocks so can’t complain and it keeps us well on course.

Season 12

We got both players tied up for a further five years.

Another annoying high scoring game as we won the match 9-0 but only Fati managed one of the goals.

No clean sweep again and a slightly lower amount of league goals.

Slightly more goals for our duo this year with 91 goals but more games played so a bit of a downer really. Still, we now have 993 goals towards the 1200 total so it’s looking good and we just need to keep going.

Manager

Youth policy still down even though I’m not making transfers and bringing youth through so highly strange how the game is set up in that regard.

Well done Ian. I always love it when someone destroys a team and their focussed player only gets a small proportion of the goals - it awakens mischief in me. 🤣

Thank you Rob, yes highly annoying but can’t be helped, well maybe it could with a better system but some of our squad players are very good now so it’s hard to stop them pinching goals.

With just 207 goals remaining the end is in sight and it’s just a matter of keeping things going as I bring you the final update to this career.

 

Season 13

Fati decided he wanted a new challenge but then was happy to sign a new contract so with any luck we’ll have no issues with happiness from now on in.

Bayern ended our Champions League hopes at the first knockout stage but we won everything else.

This was probably the highlight game for our two superstars.

Not the best of returns as they could only muster 79 goals although they did play a few less games than last year so can’t be too critical. It was Ruiz who let us down as he made a fairly poor start to the season albeit he did improve as the season went on so hopefully he’ll start next season in fine form.

Season 14

We failed to win all trophies but still had a somewhat respectable season. It was Man Utd who beat us in the Champions League final and old rivals Real defeated us in the Super Cup. We did win the CWC which also gave us a few extra games which helped our duo score a few more goals.

This 7-0 over Malaga was the stand out game with both of our duo well in amongst the goals.

Our challengers put up a great return of 101 to leave us on 1,173 goals and just a whisker away from our 1,200 goal target. Those extra CWC games really helped but it was still a great return so we can only be happy.

Season 15

With only 27 goals required going into this season we were very confident we’d be able to get over the line and that’s what we did as Fati scored the all important goal in this 5-0 victory over Malaga.

Here are the two players at the end and although Ruiz is declining he still looks good and Fati is just at the end of his peak you’d feel. They’ve both done a fine job and I’m happy that they will be my double trouble leaderboard effort for this years game.

Tactic

This was the tactic used throughout. I did experiment a little with instruction during this so I won’t put those up but the base ones don’t differ much from the ones I’ve posted to go with my Baros career tactic which can be found here. In fact having looked if you just move the balanced mentality to attacking then you have the instructions I used for the vast majority of this. There is a lot of stuff that helps this system work but I won’t go into it now as I’ve mentioned a few things on the Baros career and in other areas of the community so those things should be easy enough to find.

Conclusion

I thoroughly enjoyed playing this save but ended up behind on my posting which meant it’s been weeks since I actually finished it. I remember when I got to the target the intention was to play on at least until the end of the season and I’d had the idea to maybe try and get their assist total up to a combined 600 but after time had passed by so did the motivation so I’m leaving it here.

Thank you to all who followed this and apologies for falling behind on my posting but better late than never I suppose. If you could please add my 1201 score to The Double Trouble Challenge @Foxy I’d be very grateful.

Thanks again and I’ll be back again with another career shortly.

Thanks Smoggy, he was very good and even though he got less of the goals you could tell he was the better of the two players. Ruiz benefited from being on the right side and getting those near post corner goals. I should’ve maybe put Fati on corners then he might’ve got himself a lot more assists and we may have already had the combined 600 that was something I was slightly tempted to carry on for.

Thank you Kane, I enjoyed it and it was only falling back on my posting that took a bit away from it for me anyway. It didn’t turn out quite as challenging as I thought it could be with the no transfers thing and I think it’s just because Barca have so many good youngsters and they were always going to produce a good few top quality academy players which is what happened. I had slight concerns about the defence when it seemed like we’d never get a good centre back coming through but then even at the end here both Todibo and Cuenca who started with us were very much still apart of things so it turned out to not be a problem. It made the save quicker to play though without having transfers to worry about and it made me focus more on the players to try and develop certain weaknesses they had so a nice change all in all.

After I finish my Baros one I’m sure to start another and I have a vague idea of what it’s going to be.
