Recommended Posts

Seeing as I love mini challenges I will be attempting the Bruno Fernandes challenge today hopefully, you can find this challenge here:

I鈥檝e actually had a go at this one already but was only a test run so didn鈥檛 make any signings really and I actually found it quite difficult. In my head I know what I want to do this time round, if it works? I don鈥檛 know yet, we shall see.聽

Anyway I we back later with an update.

Doing Chelsea at the Bridge, nice one

I think I鈥檝e figured out a way to get the best out of him now, that Chelsea game even though we won was our worst performance so far 馃槀

First Half聽

So you probably read I had written this out once already, so I would go as in depth as I did before, but I will try my best. I had a bit of an advantage in this one as I have tested before, I know what didn鈥檛 work at least, so I will take you through the first half of the season.

So some big names out but some brilliant names in. Was honestly delighted with this window, I like to think of myself as a good wheeler and dealer and I think I got some good names in that makes us so strong both first and second team.

Tactic

So this is where I went most in detail, this isn鈥檛 exactly how I started off in the first couple of games, but after watching extended highlights and seeing how different roles linked up, I noticed the poacher would look more for the through ball off Fernandes and the DLF would lay Fernandes off more for the shot. Which worked great for most of the first part of the season. But I had a bit of an idea of moving them out wide and using them as inside forwards and this just clicked, he was having more shots than the strikers then, finally! Not that he wasn鈥檛 doing well anyway, I used a similar way of playing for Mbappe and Neymar when they were inside forwards but this one makes sure the play goes through Bruno and not the wide players.

So what a season so far, even the games we drew with Man City and Tottenham we should have won, creating plenty of chances and solid most games.

The league in our sights already, we have really dominated, just call me Richard Ferguson. Can we stay undefeated?

Bruno Fernandes聽

The boy is a beast and is killing it big time, i enjoyed managing Son at Tottenham so much, but now I鈥檝e found someone else who just dominates games as well, I hope he can continue this for the rest of the season.

Just a few games for you to see how many shots etc he鈥檚 getting. Hopefully nothing changes from here as he鈥檚 been a pleasure to manage so far.

Thank you for reading, will be back with a full update tomorrow. Comments are welcome by me and the family.

That's amazing! What a start mate.聽

Maybe wacky tactics are a thing of the past now, we're all going to have to go back to 'normal' setups

It does feel like that! I never use 3 at the back, but it鈥檚 doing the job on this one. Does help that Bruno鈥檚 stats are unreal, this is my second time doing this and he hasn鈥檛 had 1 injury, beast!

With whacky tactics, my goal bonanza still works, nothing will ever stop that, been going with me for years 馃槀

This is going scaringly聽聽good now since the change to the formation, not far off finishing now, will be back with an update today馃榿

Nicely done mate, I've finished my season but can't upload till later on tonight cause I'm in work, without spoiling much the tactic was phenomenal but Bruno didnt contribute as much as I'd hoped

At least you鈥檝e made a tactic to use again! With this one I鈥檝e created now it鈥檚 given me an idea for a long term career I鈥檒l do at some point, which will be different to ones I鈥檝e done before馃榿

Second Half

So welcome back to the second part of this career and I really struck gold I felt like in the change to my tactic and it鈥檚 got me over excited now and I can鈥檛 contain myself here, so let鈥檚 get going 馃槀

Transfers

So I鈥檝e already gone through this but there was an extra deal at the end of January, had a random bid for De Gea off Chelsea for 36.5m which I accepted and then brought in Onana for 42m plus Mitrovic.

Tactics聽

So I can鈥檛 go in to this too much as I鈥檝e had such success towards the end of the season that I want to use this in a long term challenge at some point, it worked so well! You shall see below.

Carabao Cup

Spoiler

Our first trophy against Manchester City, who featured massively in our season....

FA Cup

So we meet again and we beat you again but in more convincing fashion, as Bruno dominates another final.

Premier League

Dominant, there isn鈥檛 much to say other than it was a great season, does help having a very strong squad in every position, this and the Spurs one have been my favourite short challenges, proper enjoyed.

Champions League

Manchester City we meet again for a third final, which is a bit mad, I鈥檓 sure Manchester will be red for a little while after this. Bruno impacted more than the other games, we didn鈥檛 play as well, but doesn鈥檛 matter when he鈥檚 in this form.

Not my best looking manager profile, usually a higher GPG, but no losses is amazing, so happy with that.

So wanted to give you an insight of how he played in games and how many shots he would get, loved this so much, happy talking about it, how sad am I 馃槀

BRUNO FERNANDES

BEFA2FE8-E4CF-46B8-8961-9A3ED568A8C2.thumb.png.4fc281b871af3cbd13c4464f423ef28c.pngE82DA6D2-DD5F-421E-A782-EEA893CA1462.thumb.png.aa8e23ea11efaab0272c209a4657a1a8.png623C089F-DE9E-44FE-8DFA-4378606D6C84.thumb.png.eedfcdbce0ea11a904221165b8d2820d.png

Awesome just awesome, it was such a pleasure to manage. One thing I鈥檓 interested in seeing is if he has any injuries for anyone else as I鈥檝e done this twice with him now and he hasn鈥檛 been injured.聽

Also this season has given me an idea to take this tactic on a long term journey, as I think he would have got closer to 80/90 goals if I played the way I did from January.

Score

Goals - 68

Assists - 33 + 33

Total - 134聽

If anyone can get assists going on this challenge my score is definitely beatable, good luck to everyone who tries it, it鈥檚 fun.

Thanks for reading 馃榿
