Career hhooo's 5-in-1 challenge (S3)

Recommended Posts

· Posted (edited)

After seeing @geordiekrispy fly too close to the sun with his double digit challenge combo, I've combed through the offerings this year, and put together a group of challenges that work together, and will allow me to use some new players I'm curious about, and circle back to a couple that I want to try again. Before all is revealed, I'll put up the challenges and let people have a few potshots at the cast.

 

Challenge #1 - The Wedding Challenge

  • Something old: use a player above the age of 32 (Cristiano Ronaldo)
  • Something new: use a player under the age of 21 (Alessio Rosa)
  • Something borrowed: use a player you get on a loan-deal. (Federico Chiesa)
  • Something blue: get a player who plays for a club wearing blue (home kit) (Sergej Milinkovic-Savic)

 

Challenge #2 - Creating a Club Legend

  • Beat Alessandro Del Piero's scoring record of 290 goals for Juventus with another Italian, at a rate of more than .41 Gpg (Alessio Rosa) 
  • Current tally - 228 goals in 140 games (1.63 gpg)

Challenge #3 - Fabled Number 10

  1. Ireland - Jeff Hendrick (25 points)
  2. France - Maxence Caqueret (24 points)
  3. Italy - Nicolo Zaniolo(50 points)
  4. Italy - (?)
  5. Argentina - (?)
  6. France - (?)
  7. Argentina - (?)

Challenge #4 - Buffon's European Finale

  • Win the Champion's league
  • Beat 102 league points (optional)
  • Buffon Appearances - Goals Conceded 

Challenge #5 - Everyone's a Goalscorer Challenge

  • Score 5+ goals with each of your 20 outfield players

 

So the club is a given, since two of these challenges require me to use Juventus - but the rest I'm going to leave up to you guys to guess. Several of the wedding players are already at Juve, and should be fairly straightforward. Create a club legend may be more difficult, but it is someone I have used before. As for the Irish #10, just toss names out, there are less than 5 Irish attacking midfielders who aren't utter wank.

I wanted to include the Ronald Koeman challenge, but I am still absolutely clueless as to how to make a Libero actually do something to help the attack during open play. Just finding a CB who is good at pens and free kicks is nowhere near as interesting. 

As we progress into the challenge, I will likely add shorter challenges into the mix after some the current ones have been wrapped up. The suggestions box is open!

I am going to go with a wild guess and say that Buffon will be involved 🤣

Did you use the young player in TTR?

I am going to be boring and say Jeff Hendrick for the Irishman

Right on all accounts! I wanted to use Parrot, but he's only yellow in the AM role this year.

Good luck, that is a hell of a lot to bite off!  You'll probably still do better than I did though. :)

Personally I think it's the everyone's a goalscorer that killed me, that and the playing 5 up front!

I have a few reveals, and a poll for the audience!

Not too difficult to start:

Something Old

Something new/my new club legend are still up for guesses, and as far as something blue goes, we have a few options, and I'll defer the decision to you. Who would you like to see?

All 3 have moved from Blue clubs this window, and are therefore eligible. I'll run the Wedding Challenge with whoever Vibe wants to see, with the others playing more supporting roles.

Alright, I'll call that the tiebreaker. SMS will be our something blue! If anyone was inclined to comb through the TTR thread, they would find this guy knocking in 56 goals before the end of December, before he was stolen away from me by a buyout clause. 

Something New

Just out of frame is Arthur's sale for 57m to Atleti. I particularly enjoyed selling Ramsey back to Arsenal. 

Incoming:

Some classic big names along with a few personal favorites in Mvogo and Bensebaini. This will give us a lot of options tactically. 

Final squad:

At least 5 a piece from this lot. 

The window wasn't without its snags, however. I intended to keep Dybala, until I saw this:

I had Kulusevski react the same way to Hendrick, but he then settled down.
You were busier in the transfer market than may and that might pay off for you.  I had a sluggish start.

I got a £133m offer for Dybala which I couldn't turn down as I also wanted to improve the full backs.  Then I had a £85 negotiated transfer for Sandro to Real Madrid.
The only big signings I made was Robertson, Maitland Niles, then Pino thinking about the future.  I also bought out Chiesa's loan so I could retrain his position.  Trying to save money for a big signing to be my French #10 if the opportunity arrises.
Decided to keep Ramsey as a friend for the premiership arrivals.
Also kept the LB Frabrotta, who deputised really well when Robertson was injured.

A bit late to the party, but that's because I've spent the last few days reading and re-reading this, just trying to understand it! Hope you can keep it all straight, pretty sure I won't be able to! 😄

Anyway, nice choices, good luck with it mate.

It's astonishing how different tactics work vs a back 4 and a back 5. Took some serious testing to find something that could work in Italy, but early signs are good!

Looking like a high score on badge 9 is going to be achieved!

Season One has drawn to a close. As Geordie had warned me, completing 'Everyone's a goalscorer' really occupied about 80% of the season, even with some lucky hat tricks playing Alex Sandro as an IF. Cuadrado, Mckennie, and Bentancur were the stragglers, and I lost a lot of momentum on the scoring challenges because they took so long. That being said, as a team they performed really well, and having some defenders pressing from the front was not without its advantages. Let's see some results:

No long term injuries, luckily, so the squad was the same from beginning to end. Some other transfers were set up for after the season to replace the outlandishly old spine of the team.

Everyone finished, and as a team we grabbed 173 goals for our final score.

 

The Wedding Challenge / Creating a Club Legend

Something Old - 43 points

Ronaldo had a slow start to the year, but kicked into high gear at the business end, while SMS did the opposite. The system I'm using scores a lot of goals, and makes sure there are assists for almost all of them, which helped keep the points here respectable, if not great. 

Rosa got upgraded to Wonderkid status in game, which was surprising, since he's never been on the wonderkid list, but is encouraging. He was really low on priorities this season, as you can see from his numbers, but he developed well and is looking good for next season. 

Rosa stands at 14 goals in 39 games.

 

Fabled #10

Spoiler

Hend.thumb.jpg.7b99a1f578ad25c24b299144c4d5140d.jpg951355344_Hendh.thumb.jpg.28baf67e4a414b7c3b59590676728373.jpg

Not too much to say here, he isn't really up to par, but he was pretty good all things considered. 25 points on the board.

 

Buffon's European Finale

Spoiler

805771715_Gigih.thumb.jpg.0ad5f8b72bdbe3b20b6871add4b08b1d.jpg626828458_manhs1.thumb.jpg.18fb3e9ff1863bea0cbfc000e70d09e8.jpg1213726115_leagues1.thumb.jpg.f3b64ed1542eca31278c943b49528252.jpg

Buffon did very well to open the season, but started to decline in January, and had a lot of games where every single shot on target went in. He picked up a week long injury, but i made him play through it when he had the green cross. This led to a lot of low condition substitutions  around 70 minutes, because I wanted those points for his appearances. You can see above we conceded 30 goals in all appearances, even though Gigi was only on the field for 23 of them. We crushed Bayern 4-1 in the CL final, but drew on the last matchday of the season 3-3 with Spezia to mess up a perfect season. :unamused:

 

57 appearances - 30 goals + 20 for league points = 47 points

 

I think that's everything! See you all next season with a lot less text.

Well done mate, very impressive score for all the challenges, especially as you are taking on 5 at once, I will add you to the leaderboard for the badge.

Season 2

Since only two of the challenges extend past the first season, we will have slightly more detailed updates from here on out.

Transfers In

Spoiler

Transfers Out

Spoiler

We sold off some of the elderly core players for decent money considering their age, and brought in some younger replacements. Tomori and Bentancur was a straight swap, despite their values being wildly different (no one wanted to buy Benta for his value anyway). DiMarco was a total waste of money since I saw Wijndal was available for a reasonable price at the end of the window, so I just sent him out on loan and will probably take a loss on him. 

We had to bring in Saelemaekers as emergency cover in January since TAA, Hakimi, Maehle, and Chiesa somehow were all injured at once and we had no one left who was remotely competent at RB. 

Fabled Number 10

Spoiler

Caq.thumb.jpg.7609d6e1dad0e9bd6a0d67fd767a34a5.jpg1364421141_Caqh.thumb.jpg.f7d7058d928cfa78cab64372cce9eeb4.jpg

I wanted to get Pogba, but he totally refused to negotiate with us. Next choice was Tolisso. Also refused to negotiate. So that sent us down the list to Aouar or Caqueret. I went with Caqueret due to his higher stamina, but I don't think that was the best choice in hindsight. My system also went more down the flanks this year, and left less opportunities for passing combinations through the middle. I'll have to find a better balance next year. This is definitely a player I would like to revisit though, as he became really good towards the end of the season. 

 

Creating a Club Legend

Spoiler

1288382260_Rosas2.thumb.jpg.41ed4454fc165c820ae32df19d3d6711.jpg824160291_Rosas2h.thumb.jpg.f20360ce6e2930d47a6e3c72514c5c4e.jpg

I knew this guy became good from TTR, but Rosa absolutely exploded onto the scene this year. Absurd output from someone who was 18 for 90% of the season. He'll overtake Del Piero before he's 21 at this rate. Ridiculous physicals and 'resilient physique' are a serious combo!

I wasn't far off from a "Everyone's a creator" type of achievement, with 10 player with over 10 assists, and 15 with 5+ assists, but next year I'll need to buckle down and really focus play through my Italian #10.

Speaking of which, I have a list of 3 candidates - anyone care to take a guess (or make suggestions?)

Season 3

So we say goodbye to Caqueret, and bring in a vibe favorite to replace him. The negotiations aren't easy, since he was purchased by Wolves for 100m(!?) the previous season, and they accept nothing less than 115m + Kondogbia plus a 10% sell on... Something like a 150m deal. 

Spoiler

He is overconfident, lazy, etc. Not my proudest piece of business, but this is the same save where I sold Ramsey back to Arsenal for 30m, and City sold Zinchenko to Nice for 15m and brought him back a year later for 30m... No one is really covering themselves in glory. 

Other transfers 

Spoiler

We got a nice fee for Caq, flipped a few bosmen for around 50m, and landed Davies to replace Wijndal after it became clear he didn't fit the club culture. Ruggeri will be Davies' understudy after Sandro retires in a season or two. We also grabbed Tonali on a bosman, and got a good swap deal for Kounde as 3rd choice CB. 

Team results

Sextuple completed, same points as last season with one dull draw, but we absolutely pumped Italy north to south. 

Zaniolo

Spoiler

He got one upgrade during the season, which made him almost look worth the money. He was on penalties, but both him and Rosa are pretty crap from the spot, so we missed like 10-15 pens this season. Far better return than my previous 10s though, with 50 points. 

Rosa

Spoiler

Del Piero will be a footnote to this absolute unit of a forward. I put him on tackling training and play him as an AF now, and he picked up 5-10 goals from bullying defenders and keepers off the ball. He got tired more often this year, but we just took a game off and he was back and ready to smash 3 more in the next week. Words cannot express my feelings towards this vecchio. 

 

Here's a quick look at assists to see how the supporting players fared

Villa is at 20 crossing and I'm working on creativity and passing now, but he's going to take a back seat next season to my new #10 (who I also had to play way over the odds for). First one to guess gets to choose @Robs next old lady!

Brilliant season and holy f*ck! What is that amount of goals Rosa had!

I have only been playing FMM for two years, but I have never seen a better pure goalscorer than Rosa, and certainly not one that starts banging in more than 2 gpg at 18 years old! But somehow his PA isn't good enough for the wonderkids list, so I'm very happy @George Traistă randomly stuck me with Atalanta in TTR.

I will go for Daniel Maldini. Probably completely wrong.

Wow, Rosa's doing really well. I had a peek behind the curtain and his default PA isn't too bad (better than Pellegri in the latest version, but that's not saying much). In the 4 star range. And his CA is pretty low at the start so lots of room for development. Anyway, he's looking awesome. Congrats on all the other challenges too (though that's the one that has me captivated).

Yes his starting attributes are crap, and I believe he's basically finished developing at age 20, outside of a coach bump here or there. But you can get him to 19/20 in every key stat in basically one season, so he'll be capable of Balon d'Or seasons asap.

Thanks for the guess, Rich, but you won't be choosing Rob's old lady. I've gone with the cheapest Italian AM on the market, for a mere 75m.

We'll see in a bit if it was as big of a rip-off as Nico
