Career Insane Journeyman - Americas Edition (Cut Short)

Recommended Posts

Ok, so with new game already out, it's time for a brand new career from yours truly. After wondering for a while as to what i should do, i thought i should go back to the same challenge which brought me fame:

 

and a Vibe Award in the form of Career of the Year in 2020:

 

I wanted to do something conventional yet a little offbeat. So, i looked at the things i have not done in the past and one of the first things is i have never delved into the new leagues in the last 2 editions at the start. So, i wanted to change that.

 

So, here's presenting:

THE INSANE JOURNEYMAN - AMERICAS EDITION 

where as manager of unknown reputation, i travel across USA, Canada, Mexico, Argentina to manage 30 clubs in 30 seasons and etch my name amongst the footballing legends in the Americas.

 

Hope you will all support me as you have done in the past. The 1st season will be up soon.

 

Any guesses as to where do i start??

Be sure you don't go twice on same team :D  You only have around 120 teams in these 4 countries, so you will manage 25% of those.

My guess is Mexico, not to north, not to south, perfect sport to start.

Season 1

We start this career with Universidad de Guadaljara who is currently in the Mexican Expansion League. It is divided in two stages: Apertura or Opening Stage and Clausura or Closing Stage.

15 league games are played in each stage with the top team in the league going on to semi-final while the next 6 teams facing each other for a spot in semi finals.

I brought in just 2 players on free and forgot to do the screenshots.

We started slowly with 3 draws but then we picked up the pace and finished 1st.

We lost in the semi-finals to Morelia undoing our good work in the league. 

 

Clausura

We couldn't do the same in Clausura as Atlante pipped us to the top spot which meant we had to take a longer spot towards the finals.

And we stormed to the league after winning the finals taking our revenge.

The winners of the Apertura and Clausura faces off each other in the EL Champions Trophy.

Diaz, our right winger did the job with 9 goals and 6 assists even though he missed a couple of matches.

Well done! You made the right decision to sign just two players, in my save I've signed too many and now all the dynamics is gone... I need to stop playing like FMM20 and adjust.

I almost had a hunch to fully load freebies in my team but then i saw the relationships getting developed and cut short my aspirations. It worked well in the end. Thanks mate.

Season 2

We continue in the Mexican Expansion League with Venados FC or the Bucks whose claim to fame is finishing 14th in the former second divisions Apertura in 2018.

Once again forgot to do screenshots of transfers but again brought in freebies, this time around 5.

Apertura

Screenshot_2020-11-27-13-20-53-79.thumb.png.8661f4a4d58b0c1b1e8cb083253a9be6.png

The early going were tough and we never really recovered fully finishing 8th but managing to qualify in the playoffs.

Playoffs

Spoiler

Screenshot_2020-11-27-16-07-01-45.thumb.png.b6df67e1ef3134f11ac5ffde4d8291d2.png

We managed to go all the way to semi-finals before losing to the eventual winner of the league Atlante.

 

Clausura

Spoiler

Screenshot_2020-11-27-18-39-34-31.thumb.png.c17daedb02046a2012099e1dc53c101e.png

Clausura was much better as the dynamics started getting connected between players and we eventually finished second.

And we took the long route but eventually ended up winning the Clausura making it 2 Clausura titles in a row. Becoming a late bloomer eh!!

 

EL Champions Trophy

Screenshot_2020-11-27-19-18-00-28.thumb.png.dbc9a6e9a087dc9ab0925796d42d90d6.png

We pick up the Champions Trophy again and this time we defeated the Apertura champion Cancun again. This is becoming a bit of tradition, Cancun winning the Apertura every season and losing the Champions Trophy to my managed club every season.

Either there is a bug or the Expansion League doesn't offer any awards as i have not seen anything so far.

 

Top 3 Players

Cardozo our roaming playmaker was instrumental in our team scoring so many goals with 15 assists and 10 goals.

Palma, one of our freebies who was brought in by the previous manager but didn't really get a chance last season flourished under me with 14 goals and 13 assists. He also developed nicely over the season.

 

Screenshot_2020-11-27-19-44-34-14.thumb.png.b69051bc32d67be8e2c7774ab033eb36.pngScreenshot_2020-11-27-19-44-40-69.thumb.png.cfa7945a93f59f7cdfaa17f046b14abb.png

And Lara, our lone striker was fantastic with 42 goals from 43 games, almost a goal a game.

Screenshot_2020-11-27-19-43-48-06.thumb.png.0f89d8fa21a1b5867ccc65e21a9b9610.png

He also led the league in goals.

After a long wait when i faced many rejections, finally the next offer too came from the Mexican Expansion League, in the form of:

Dorados.png.af367f1da2188f7374fcaea37abd265f.png

I took over from this position in the Apertura

We went on a run of 4 wins, a loss and a draw. We couldn't do much in the playoffs losing our quarter finals.

 

Clausura

We finished second in the Clausura and we played exactly like my reputation was, storming through the playoffs to win my second Clausura on the trot with 2 different club.

Meza was our star roaming playmaker and he made a big impact, especially in the Clausura.

Martinez did a great job from the left IF position, netting in 11 goals and 13 assists.

And Zuniga, our Colombian striker did his part with 30 goals and 7 assists from 42 matches.

Screenshot_2020-11-29-12-40-34-15.thumb.png.9971a4251b71a98a13dd11d3e40ba537.png

Slight drop but a great score still. The club’s crest looks impressive 👀

Thanks mate. The lesser points was also due to me getting to manage 11 less league games. And Mexico has some sweet looking club logos.

Hopefully you can. I had a test career in Italy, just to test something, and even tho I had housesold reputation clubs from England championship and L1 would not hire me and instead they hire regional or national reputation manager, weird. Maybe it was because I didn't won nothing yet in serie b...

Season 4

Finally after three seasons, i get a job in separate country as i take up a job as manager of Pacific FC in Canadian Premier League.

and i got to take over for a full season. 

So, firstly the transfers:

Transfers Out

Of course, we have been handed over peanuts as transfer budget so we had to rely on freebies and one proper buy in the Zambian Charles Renken.

Our campaign had some entertaining games in the start:

finally we landed here:

Another entertaining two legged final as we made a comeback in the 1st leg after digesting 2 goals in the first half, and then in the second leg, we demolished them to lift the title.

Finally some awards as i won my first Manager of the Year in 2021 while Charles Renken, our Zambian buy wins the POTY. In fact we made a clean sweep there while our Spanish striker Rivero narrowly missed out on the Golden Boot with 13 goals to 15.

Calaidjoglu, our fan favorite Moldovan midfielder was on song with 13 goals and 15 assists

Our Spanish striker, Alvaro Rivero also contributed pretty well with 15 goals and 8 assists from 28 games, almost a game every 2 match.

Charles Renken, my star signing was also the highest rated player of the season and the only player with more than 8 AvR.

 

Also, for the first time i managed to build relationships between my entire playing XI:
