Career PAT: The new MSN tries a few challenges - The End


 Share

Recommended Posts

I’ve wanted to try a challenge combination for a while; I also enjoyed the MSN ‘Last Dance’ Badge of Honour and wanted to create a new ‘MSN’ at Barcelona. So I slammed the two concepts together to create a new career for myself.

So who are the new MSN? They are... wait for: PAT. Pedri, Ansu, and Troy. It is these three lads:

03F1EEBD-8118-4A8F-BBB7-98437F0E627B.thumb.jpeg.7c04a24874eb35421d357bcc69a1f091.jpegC08A2D1F-7F5B-4409-A753-7162137AAAB2.thumb.jpeg.7f78df6262048a6d7851c2c06cf10924.jpeg3AD69FD3-372B-45FA-BBA6-CE4DD92483DA.thumb.jpeg.65909bbcb060bc5a8d6c1c537c89bba2.jpeg

Pedri and Fati are two players who have broken through at the Catalans in the last year or so and are also two wonderkids that wouldn’t usually come up in most people’s goal career searches due to their relatively poor aerial. 

Troy has forever been Tottenham’s ‘next big thing’, but is playing more of a supporting role in this career. 

The challenges I want to try are (in order of what I am prioritising):

  • Pedri 500/500. 500 goals and 500 assists for the young Spaniard;
  • Fati 500/500. The team is built around Pedri, but Fati will play his role when injured or tired. Fati’s usual role should also create and score, just not as much as Pedri’s position;
  • Goaltopia. This will just be a by-product of playing the three together. I can’t imagine this will be anything too amazing and is certainly not what I am focusing on;
  • Assists Leaderboard for Pedri and Fati. Again, this is a by-product of the 500/500;
  • I was tempted to include Troy and a 1kc, but he won’t be on any set pieces so I just don’t see it happening

Thanks for reading!

Great choice of players Robbie, looking forward to seeing how this goes, good luck 😁

Thanks Ricky. I know they are all Wonderkids but I haven’t seen them used much on here. @Ian did a great 1kc with Troy a few years ago though.

PAT has a nice sound to it. I look back on my Troy 1kc very fondly as it was the first 1kc I ever did. It felt really organic too as I didn’t even complete the first season before posting which never happens for me now. I just picked the player, announced it and went for it. Luckily it didn’t turn out to be a complete disaster lol.

I like the three players here and like your targets so good luck.

Thanks Ian. I remember you doing something great with Shane Long too. Good times!

Great choice of players Rob. Looking forward to how Parrott does for you as I haven't got him going ever in my games.

Parrott? I expecting Deeney but that’s acceptable. Good luck

It was a close call between the two but Troy just edged it. He annoys me in training though: he just repeats what I say back to me.

Thanks. He is very much the third wheel. I  just wanted to give him a him a go as if considered him for a few things before and never used him.

I’m really looking forward to seeing how you get on with the 50/50 1kc because that’s an interesting challenge.

Good luck.

Thanks. I am sort of hitting this strategically. 33.3 goals and assists each season in a 15 year career seems doable. It’s trying to do it with two players that may mess me up.

Thanks Smog, very kind.

Season 01


The first season was all about settling in to the club whilst making sure the young pups played and developed as much as possible. I wasn’t expecting anything spectacular, so no one else should either!

Transfers

I did a lot, as per usual. Due to the Badges I’m fairly used to signing the same folk, especially at a top tier club. I am starting to get a bit bored of this so I’ll look at doing something different after this career.

I did drag in a few youngsters who I know develop well in other saves, such as Gvardiol and Nianzou. Griezmann and Dembele were the big money exits, with other known names departing as part exchanges.

Team Performance

We suffered the indignity of crashing out of the CL in the group stages, but bounced back with a strong second half of the season by winning everything else including the mighty Europa League. Please don’t laugh at me.

We also scored, as a team, at a rate of 3gpg, which I was pleased about. 

A lot of the season was spent tweaking a set tactic to suit the personnel involved and to fine tune the set piece takers, which I do get in a bit of a flap about due to the parallel challenge aspect of this career.

Player Performance

I’m not going to do attribute photos every season, but here they are at the end of the first.

The lads did fairly decently for the first season.

So, yeah, a good start. Not amazing, but I think decent. I think this will need three seasons to really get going to allow the lads time to develop, strengthen the squad to become two excellent sides to rotate, and time to allow the other youth folk to (hopefully) turn in to beasts.

Thanks for reading!

Great first season. The crashing out of group stage has happened to me before lol

Thanks. Embarrassing though. From what I remember it wasn’t an especially difficult group.

A great start for the youngsters. I enjoyed the Europa league games on my Milan one against some weaker sides.

Thanks Ian. Yeah, it certainly helped with the little pups’ goals and assists. A right old mixture of teams in there though - some Champs Cup standard and then some utter dross.

Impressive strat Robert! I’m very impressed with Pedri. 57 goals involvement in only 45 games at the age of 18?!

Thanks. He is a lovely little man.

Looking good mate, I like your choices here. Fati was amazing last year, but haven't used him this year. Troy's been good for me too, although don't get to use him much. And Pedri is top class too. I think you'll do quite well here. Plus bonus points for your table, even if it is an image, puts @RichD's one to shame! 🤣

Not joking I actually asked Rob how he made it after he posted his fancy table 😂

Cheers Scratch. Pedri is a beautiful man. I wonder which of the three will become the best in real life.

The table is nothing if not spectacular...

...which is why this fella asked me for it. I’ve heard of tactic begs... but ‘graphic begs’? That’s a new one.

Season 02

I am quite a way through this now so much like Ian in his fantastic Goaltopia career I am going to try and catch-up. You are more than likely going to get an update each day, maybe two, and they won’t be especially detailed. Plus I am going to take a bit of an absence from Vibe for a bit after this so I want to get this done.

Transfers 

Camavinga slots in to my B team, hopefully to push to the main lineup when older. I have a man crush on Gnabry. Isak offers a threat at set pieces.

Team Performance

Whilst not quite ‘being FMMed’ these were annoying:

The latter was the Champions Cup Final. Doh!

Pedri is returning scores that’ll get him the 500/500 in 15 seasons, which should be doable considering as at this point he is 18. Fingers crossed he doesn’t ever want to leave...

Great stuff Rob, Pedri smashed that out of the park. I would consider them games FMM’ed myself, so frustrating. Hope you’re not gone for too long.

Cheers. He is a sexy beast. This doesn’t really get going until a few seasons time when they all grow up. Sort of feels dull.
