Career Wedding Challenge - The Bride is Kean


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Okay serious face, this is a proper attempt this time after the embarrassment at Falkirk (link at the bottom). 

We are going for the Wedding Challenge.

I am choosing to go with PSG.  They are a dominant team in their league and also have access to European competition.  There is a decent budget that can be invested to shape how I would like.
Going to revert back to an old favorite formation of mine which I have used successfully before, but requires a bit of retraining to make players fit in.  I have also already been busy in the transfer market getting in some options and moving players that I wont use on.

We will need:- 

  • Something old: use a player above the age of 32
    Spoiler

    Father of the Bride - Angel Di Maria and will try and make him the go to playmaker instead of Neymar.  He can shift between the AMC and FR role with Mbappe.

  • Something new: use a player under the age of 21
    Spoiler

    Paige boy - Kylian Mbappe is going to be my breakaway attacker.  I am retraining him to play the AMC / SS role to get a feed from either the wing backs or Di Maria.

  • Something borrowed: use a player you get on a loan-deal.
    Spoiler

    The Bride - Moise Kean has been borrowed from Everton.  He seems to have done very well for PSG this year in real life.  He is going to play in the FL role and hoping he will be able to pick up quite a few goals.

  • Something blue: get a player who plays for a club wearing blue (home kit)
    This is where I need some help to select my player to use. I have been busy in the market and purchased these viable blues.
    Please chip in with who you think I should go with.

    Digne - An attacking left full-back/wing-back who can also be useful on set pieces.
     
    Spoiler

    Digne.thumb.PNG.4210b9846e24ed95ba42f83ac032ab94.PNG



    Pereira - An attacking right full-back/wing-back who could also chip in with assists and maybe also goals.
     
    Spoiler

    Pereira.thumb.PNG.36b4a38d97b76af56ab358f3a9383113.PNG



    Koulibaly - Yes a central defender given his aerial ability and strength, but with the possibility of goals from set pieces.
     
    Spoiler

    Koulibaly.thumb.PNG.5231acbc3ad747695c29a02a9ffee405.PNG



    Kovacic - A central midfielder who can pick a pass and get a few assists from open play by feeding in Mbappe and Kean.  Not great shooting stats though.
     
    Spoiler

So there it is.
Please chip in with who you think I should go with for my "blue" player.  Hoping to get started tomorrow morning.

I’d go for Digne, he’s been really good for me in the past 😁

1st game out was a good start, unfortunately not every game has been like this.

Then this happened

I have had a few more injuries, which has really stretched the team. I tried changing to a 4-2-4 formation to try and get more goals, but with the injuries I just can't fulfil the positions.
Transfer window is coming and I am looking to bring in Bruno Henrique and Mikel Merino.  Henrique to provide cover up in FC and AML positions, then Merino as a roaming / deep lying playmaker left footed competition for Verrati and a bit more size into the team.

Di Maria has been quite pivotal to the team, so him missing is hurting

Getting near the end and season really killed by injuries, they just keep coming.  I deliberately kept the squad quite tight, but suffering for it now.  Being sympathetic towards playing time too, rarely do any of the wedding party play 90 mins.

Trying to keep the enthusiasm going until the end of the season. Nearly there!

Yeah, that is super unlucky with the injuries. 🙁 

How is retraining Mbappe going? Sounds like it could be tough to get him up to full speed there. 

Anyway, nice choices.

To be honest, it was really hard to get him playing there with all the injuries.  He has probably been the least effective of the four, but will hopefully come good towards the end, especially as Kean is really struggling with his energy levels now.

Just on the back of retraining Mbappe
He had a clean run at that position for the last few games of the season and well...

The season was hampered by injuries to the key player, despite best efforts to keep them fresh.  Di Maria was the star, but also the most injury prone.  
Digne and Kean played the most games, but Kean was difficult to keep from being tired and demotivated.
I thought Digne did well for a full back and could maybe picked up a few more goals
The Mbappe re-training worked once I could get back into the formation with the full team, but too late to really rack up a big score.

@Alexotelli - can you add my scores please?
