Career Rob tries the KDB Challenge - Attempt 1

Recommended Posts

 

Spoiler

 

So I thought I would give the greatest challenge this forum has ever seen a go.

I was going to do a mid-season post, but I will just rattle through it and do a post at the end. The reason being that I want to give it two attempts with two different tactics.  

One thing that will be the same throughout boy attempts is that I will have an A and B team. The A team, which KDB will be a part of, will play league games. The B team will play all Cup competitions, except for when fixture congestion picks up.

Wish me luck!

Good Luck!!! I think De Bruyne is one of the best players on FM. Shame he gets injured so much

I was say to @Foxy that I have rarely had injury problems with him in the past. His stamina drops easily in games and needs subbing a lot, mind. I tend to use the November database, so not sure if that matters?

Attempt #1 Results

A gentle reminder that this is a one season challenge with the score equalling league goals plus league assists.

 

Transfers

I have a thing for Saul and Bruno. I can’t help it. The first can fill plenty of positions and is, for me, the best all-rounder in the game; the latter is just a sexy beast of a man. If this was the challenge cup he would definitely get me a semi appearance.

Quintero is the best bargain in this year’s game.


Team and Manager Performance

Just to remind everyone, my A team played the league games and B team played the Cups. That’s why this happened:

We romped the league, but I was a bit surprised we drew as many as we did at the end. It felt like we won more. Room for improvement there.

Decent enough manager performance. A fairly good goal per game too.


Kevin’s Performance

First thing first, he played every league game. Like I said earlier in the thread, I have never had any injury problems with him in the past and he’s never had that wording in any of my coach reports. With the majority of fixtures being league-cup-league it meant he could play all nineties minutes of each game, which helped massively. It was only the Christmas congestion that I had to sub him off and rotate the B team, with him included in, in to the occasional league game.

He got 37 assists.

...and 38 goals.

Pretty much one of each per game. The OCD in me is really irritated that it wasn’t 38 and 38. It’s a bit like putting petrol in the car and it reaching £29.98p.

That gives me a score of 75. I am really pleased with that, but I am 100% sure it is beatable as a load of you have monster tactics that give birth to an excess of goals. I will take a break and do something else before try my second, and final, attempt.

Thanks for reading and all comments welcome!

Good total but definitely beatable.

You wouldn’t want to be there when I fill up then as I just stop when the tanks full and don’t look to get a round number.

Very nice total there Rob.

He’s a very good player simple as that, truly fabulous in fact. I enjoyed my attempt mainly because I hadn’t used him much and he might not be injury prone at all as I may have been guilty of overplaying him.

I tend to do that, if I’m honest. £37.43 doesn’t bother me... but £37.97 would. Weird.

Wonderful player. I’m fairly sure you’ll beat it in your next attempt though.

Thanks. A unique tactic I worked on a lot. These little challenges really help you develop stuff.

Umm, 165 goals in the league is pretty damn good. I can only dream of that! How many more people out there with tactics like that? A few I guess, there are some really tactic tweakers on here! Maybe I need to give up my Defensive approach... 🤣

Edit: Was so blown away by the number of goals I forgot to say well done mate! Cracking season.

Cheers. It was 126 in the league and 165 overall, so not that great!

Oh, right... 126 is pretty good still. Have managed that but not that often. I was just getting fired up to go experiment a bit, LOL... I always come back to a Defensive tactic, even in my 2 up front challenge right now - less goals overall, but more directed to the strikers. But I really need to let go of that and try some more attacking things (maybe like a Bati 1 0 2 2 5 or something 😄)...

I genuinely look forward to seeing what you come up with! Good luck!

I generally develop on the go, just finishing up season 2 of my DT/TT, so I'll experiment a bit in season 3 - but if it doesn't work, I'll run back to my boring tactic...
