Career Dai's "Badge 08" attempt. Dortmund Darling's.


 Share

Recommended Posts

Took time out from my other save to get this done. I've had so many ideas on how to play this. I think I'll be OK getting five players performing but I'm not looking forward to incorporating a sixth into the mix.

The Challenge:

Spoiler

 

It's a tough one. I'll post the first season in the morning as I don't have time now before work but I just thought I'd let you in on my 5th wonderkid. I would let you guess but I doubt any of you would get it in years... 😂

 

The Chosen (fifth) One:

A different approach to one's I've seen so far. He's a go to player for me on nearly every save. Relatively cheap and extremely reliable. A little bit of training and he becomes one of the best corner takers I've seen on the game and that's saying something. He was crucial in my Baresi 1kc last year.

I'm going to use my 1kc tactic from this year as it's my best bet to focus on five players. Might be a bit negative compared to the other goal-galore attempts so far but, we'll see how it goes.

 

As I said, I'll post the first season in the morning. 👍

Ohhh nice choice. Very different choice of player and I agree him and Dest for me would go awesome from wingback or the wing last year, I remember him getting 20 crossing for me in one last year. Good luck mate 👍

Interesting choice and incredibly logical, especially when paired with your 1kc tactic that is obviously awesome based on what we’ve seen.

Best of luck mate. I’ve heard a night of Bliss is on the cards if you go top.

Cheers bud. Yeah, last year Dest and Wijndal were my right and left back in most saves. A bit harder to get Dest this year so I've only used him in the MSN challenge this year.

Cheers Rob. I'm also using him to extinguish the myth that right sided players get more assists. 😂

Season 1:

 

As stated earlier, I'll be using my 1kc tactic for this. I've tested it in Germany before with Bayern but they had established players. Not wonderkids.

I actually quite like the Dortmund squad. Players that suit my formation and style. Didn't need much wheeling and dealing. Just added depth to key areas.

Then, the final against Man City;

Unbeaten! Bayern lost seven games. What's all that about? Nothing special in the goal difference though really. Need to improve that next season but at least another target has been hit.

Injuries:

I've been quite lucky in most of my challenges so far so it was about time a few injuries caught up with me.

Meeting as much of the criteria as I have affords me the luxury of going at it a bit more next season. I've already decided how I'm incorporating a sixth player into the mix, I've also chosen that player. He's signed and everything. It was going to be Esposito but he wouldn't sign for me. 😡 but, he came in on loan. 😕

I'll add up my score at the end of season 2. I've already played a wee bit while I was at work so as long as I can stay awake it will hopefully be done soon. 👍

Thanks for reading. 😊

Holy f- Dai! 70 freaking goals! 🤣

You’re absolutely killing this

Yeah, that's pretty cool, I'll admit but I need the others to start scoring and assisting to have any chance of getting near the greats already on the leaderboard. Not that I'm all that bothered about topping any leaderboard it's just nice to get in amongst them. 😂

Great first season that is dai! Absolutely smashed it out of the park. You can relax with the champions league done as that’s the hardest bit for me 😁

Well done mate, that's a great start - 342 points so far, plus the dreaded UCL final crossed off. Interesting approach to go with a 1KC tactic, but worked really well. Likewise interesting approach to go with a WB - I wouldn't have thought of it, but it makes sense! Looking forward to see what you do next season.

Season 2:

 

With the torture of trying to incorporate another player into my system, I simply adjusted my 1kc to allow me to play two and even three up front at times. I need goals, and lots of them to improve the overall score. Also, assists obviously. 

 

The 6th Darling:

A player I've used quite alot in previous versions of FMM. I've completed a 1kc with him 2 years ago and also a double trouble with him and Sancho last year.

It was between Greenwood and Esposito but seeing as the latter didn't want to come to Germany it ended up being the English wonderkid. Esposito joined on loan, however. 🙄

A wee bit more movement this season. With the slight switch in system I needed legs I the midfield. McTominay and Barella have never let me down and TAA is just outstanding.

Late goals in each half spoiled our chances of a clean sweep. I found RBL the toughest opponents throughout this challenge. Always gave me a game.

 

Champions League:

We have already won it so didn't need to go for it but the competitor in me, I had to have a go.

Not unhappy with these at all. I know Bellingham is still young but I'm underwhelmed with him over the two seasons. Maybe I'm being a tad harsh but he's possibly going to let me down in my overall score.

That's massive mate! Added you to the leaderboard - only 4 points behind Rich who's first. 

Your Sancho looks amazing - I couldn't get him anywhere near that in my first attempt. I'm guessing you are playing him as RW? I'd play that Sancho there, but at the start his Crossing is too low that I didn't even try, just put him in the AMC role (or S) and let Reyna take the wing. Interesting how we all approach these so differently.

Anyway, great work mate!

I don't think we can do that, as impressive as it is... but maybe I'll penalise Rich 5 points for letting so many people on Vibe down with all these abandoned careers he's left all over the place... 🤣

Cheers man. It was brilliant and frustrating all at once. I've never attempted anything with so many moving parts. Wasn't even sure I could do it. In previous versions of the game I've adapted my 1kc tactic to a double trouble easily enough but this was different gravy. I loved it though. Such a good challenge.

I knew I could get Sancho looking like that as I've done it before. I had him as the main supplier to Greenwood in my 1kc two years ago.
