Career Romario, Ronaldo, Rivaldo and now Joelinton?

Recommended Posts

· Posted (edited)

So hello there and welcome to my latest career. Which may actually be quite a difficult one. I have decided to finally give me main man Joelinton a go, I did think of going Newcastle but I thought no let’s make it a bit of fun for myself and I thought Barcelona have a history with the Brazilians and now Joelinton is the latest man to ply his trade there. 
 

What’s The Challenge?

Well the challenge is simple, I’m only going for the 5 season peak years challenge for now, unless it becomes something else as well as I go. You can find the peak years challenge Here.

The Man Himself

Mike Ashley at it again, they wouldn’t accept any less for the “star man”. They are laughing at Barca right now, but this is where Joelintons career changes and he becomes the main man at Barca? 
 

Score

Just thought I’d mention for peak years it’s goals and assists that count so I’m going to be my crafty little self here and try getting a bit of both out of him this first season.

Conclusion

I haven’t even started yet, I’ve just made my signings so this could all end in tears if I can’t get much out of him. But I’m looking forward to trying, been wanting to try him for a long time.

Thank you for reading and your comments will be more than welcome here 😁

Yeah good luck. I'm currently managing York9 and I wouldn't sign him!

This will be fantastic!

Good luck, the couple of seasons I had in my multi challenge, Joelinton actually was half decent as an IF or pressing forward.

Cheers mate! I’m hoping with good players around him, he can get a few goals and assists!

He was very good a few versions ago. This one though not so much but best of luck to the £62m man!

Yeah he was. It’s weird I had a 45m and 50% sell on clause accepted but he wouldn’t come. I bid the 62m and go sell on clause and he came🤔

The next game, most of them clear cut ones fell for Big Joel, luckily he smashed the pen in on the 97th minute, nerves of steal. We need to turn these in to wins though….

 

Sorry for multiple updates, just I am really enjoying this.

You silly silly man 😂

Hope you having him on shooting training! Good luck mate. 👍

I am a very silly man! 
 

He is indeed training on shooting, he’s up to a massive 11 at it now 😉

Love This! What could possibly go wrong 🤣 He's worth about £6.20 in real life, let alone £62million 👀

I know, how the hell do they think he’s worth £62m, it’s absolute madness, his stats at the start aren’t good enough for league 1 😂

About time Barca signed a decent Brazilian striker after those three shitters you mentioned in the title.

I know, you’re telling me! They’ve finally got some flair and personality in the team.

The season is done, haven’t played until this time for a long time, Joelinton has me hooked! Update to come tomorrow 😁

If he gets anywhere over 15, I will accuse you for cheating.

Luckily he only scored 14 then 😂

I can't wait for the numbers to roll in... I think he'll be starting low and become a powerhouse, but get more assists that goals.

Yeah to be fair towards the end of the seasons he’s had some decent improvements to his attributes, so from second season, he could get some good numbers. Even though maybe he did first season, just my expectations are always so high 😂

To be fair it's not hard to expect some gains from any ex-newcastle player, it's not as if the coaching staff and facilities are particularly good or anything...

Yeah very true, we have such bad facilities! He’s now ready to fill his potential 😝

Season 1

Hello and welcome back to my brave attempt at making Joelinton the star man at Barcelona like some of the Brazilians of past years. His starting stats are woeful with a lot of them being at 10, so it’s always a tough ask to get someone scoring and assisting when shooting, passing and crossing are all at 10, but I like a challenge. So let’s see how we did.

Well first off id just like to say I don’t think I’ve ever had a team stronger in the first season, it was very easy to build a world class squad very early. So happy with my squad, even with all the players I bought in, Joelinton was the most expensive 😂

The Two Line Ups

So as you can see we had two very strong squads, by the end I did however start Dembele and James ahead of Messi and Fati and actually played James on the right and Dembele on the left and it did give Big Joe more opportunities as they didn’t shoot as much.

My plan for this season was too play through the middle and try and get everything to go through Bruno, looking back I may have played at least one striker to get him more assists and someone to hold the ball up for him, but I wanted to play a different kind of tactic this season.

Well firstly as you can see Big Joe had an impact in all the games there. The most annoying thing is, we battered Real Madrid in the champions league but couldn’t score (Big Joe) and then he goes and gets sent off in the cup final which was only 3 days after the elimination from the champions league! Two sendings off for pushing people in the chest for him. 
 

League wise we were outstanding and even the 5 drawn we should have really won.

So I don’t really know what to make of this season, I’m not even sure if that’s a decent score or not, his lack of passing ability really let him down with his assists but I think a lot of it was down too not having a striker to play one twos with. I will be going about next season in my old fashioned way of more all out attack, we were too careful this season.

The plus for this is, that his big jump in stats came towards the end of the season, so next season should be a lot better, i maybe should have done more testing on an average player before it started. But it’s an ok start.

Thank you for reading that big update, your comments are always appreciated 😁
