Career Donovan 2.0 - A Multi-challenge (Season 2)

Recommended Posts

So, after losing my IF DT save and generally getting frustrated over Efe's performance, i thought about taking some rest and ponder on what to do next.

The remaining badge attempts crossed my mind but after having failed at Ronaldo challenge for umpteenth time, i am still not in the mood to play them because, call me obsessive but i want to complete the badges in order so until i cross of Ronny, i will not attempt 7 & 8.

That being said, i also was in no mood to go back to the IF challenge as it had already broken me.

So, i thought the best thing to do is to go back to a challenge which i enjoy a lot - a strikerless career.

But i wanted to be unconventional and a challenge caught my attention:

It is one of my own:

The Landon Donovan Challenge

I have never been able to complete it last year after once again overwriting the save but this time thanks to inputs from @George Traistă, i will make sure to backup so that i never lose my save.

This also coincides with the Creating a Club Legend by @FuddledFox  and here is his figures from transfermarkt.co.in 

1863826688_TopGoalscorer.jpg.9a1bbc8c3a093b12880dbe7468b3023d.jpg

 

So, i need to score 137 goals at a better GPG than 0.43 and also emulate the American legend by not only scoring goals but also assists - a perfect recipe for strikerless.

 

So, hope you all will be supporting me the way you have done with all my previous careers.

The player is on the verge of finalization so any suggestions or predictions would be welcome.

Not sure what is striker less but as a player Musah was great for me in 2 saves so far.

Also McKennie (the one from Juve) is great a player

He is a great player but we cant afford him. 😀

A decade earlier and he would have been the perfect candidate,

Sorry to hear about you losing your IF DT one but good to see you jump straight back on the horse.

Good luck.

Thanks guys. He is not an usual choice and i believe has not been used ever before so i sincerely hope he does not go in Efekele's way.

Thanks @Albionic.

 

So, the player i have chosen is in the wonderkid list this year and i used him last year a bit but never long enough and never as a main man.

He has all the tools to be a good treq so need to wait and watch.

First season coming soon.

I had Busio when we did Augusta but by the time I needed him he was too old and only used him as backup for one season. He was ok-ish, I've used him as AMC(AP)

A further 2 goals from pens in the playoffs but no assist sadly. 

He has the selfish player note so getting assists out of him can be a chore i think.

Some nice all round development and i have been training him as a CF to get his shooting and aerials up. Seems to be working so far.

We got a mission lads, lets get rid of Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig!

Great work Harry Kane. Keep going

Count me in, RB Leipzig bid for anything and anyone with above a 7.2 rating this year. They bought about 12 players from me while I was in Korea in CC, tried to buy my players while I was in Poland in the same save, and have continued to haunt me into TTR by bidding for everyone who is supposed to get miles for me.

A nice season for the youngster. Hopefully he can get himself settled down and you can keep those interested clubs off him.

Yes, hopefully he does as he has moody personality so perhaps I have got my  hands on another loose cannon.
