Career Scratch's Heist Off - The Celtic 5 v The Scorned 6 [Season3]

Recommended Posts

All I will say, in fear of upsetting either, is you are both doing very well. I suggest you try and make friends though. 

Thank you.

I do not mind people saying Scratch is doing well. I am glad he is. It will make victory all the more sweet. Or, if we lose, we will have lost to a worthy opponent.

As for making friends, I leave that to Scratch. I am not good at such things. But I have no wish for enmity. Perhaps people misunderstand me...

Season 3

Wow, it's taking me a long time to get through this save...

Season 2 was a nice step forward, with 172 goals and 108 assists, both 20 more than in season 1. Of course we had a few easy games in the Club World Championship to boost those numbers. I'm not sure we'll be able to hit them again - especially in the crazy 2022 World Cup year, when the games come crazy fast and they need to be rested etc.

It was time for some of the squad players to move on, including favourites such as Mikey (sorry @broodje kip) Johnston and Captain Callum McGregor. We brought in Berge, Pellegrini and Ricci, along with some regens who look good.

 

A Lesson In Determination

Adam Armstrong's personality is described as Determined. It fits, but he might have met his match with me...

I tried to sign him to a new contract throughout the season, but he wanted £350K p/w and and £3.4M sign on fee, when our maximums are £65K p/w and £1.3M. Near the end of the season, his agent came to me and complained about his contract. Said he wanted £32K p/w. I wasn't having that after all the trouble, so I drove it down to £25K.

We lost the semi final of the CWC (as mentioned in the last update), but I didn't realise there was a 3rd place playoff awaiting us. It seems Bayern were surprised too, as we smashed them 5-2 to claim 3rd. Yes, the 3rd place playoff never matters, but it still felt good to crush a big team.

The rest of the season was mixed - a massive season in the league with 148 goals and a straightforward Scottish Cup victory, but we lost the Betfred Cup final with the decider in the 2nd minute of stoppage time and Man City knocked us out of the UCL Quarter Final on away goals.

 

The Lads

Here's what they look like at the end of the season:

Armstrong, Colidio and Vignato have all maxed out. Colidio increases are injury recovery, which took most of the season (very slow). Hornby and Unuvar both had nice advances.

 

Injuries

We were exceptionally lucky with injuries this year, with only Colidio missing 10 days and Armstrong missing a few days:

That said, the lads missed a lot of games due to the amount of games crammed in. Check this out for example (6 games in 12 days between Feb 4 and 15):

Not bad when you take into account the number of games they played (down due to the crowded season).

Edit by Mr Bite: I added the comparison table, but I think Scratch is starting to suspect something is going on.

 

Final Thoughts

A good solid season, but I'm looking forward to seeing how they go next season when they can get on the field a little more.

Thanks for reading.

Love that! Just love seeing Adam Armstrong being used again, massive soft spot, hope to see him back at Newcastle someday.

Yeah, my first 1KC striker for that reason and I keep coming back to him. And he's awesome in this save!  Wasn't so great other times over used him recently though.

I keep thinking I might create a "Never Go Back" challenge, where you can only sign players who've previously been at the club. That'd be interesting and give us an excuse to sign him at Newcastle again..

The Scorned 6 - Season 3

Another season. And we are stronger than ever.

Some left, but need not be spoken of. They were not the core of the pack.

Some arrived, three young pups and a seasoned hunter who had been cast out by his pack.

The League was easy again, as was the PT Cup, but Benfica knocked us out of the League Cup for the second year in a row. We were knocked out of the UCL at the group stage, but went on to win the Euro Cup, beating AC Milan 2-1 in the final.

 

The Hunters

The hunters are growing strong:

As last year, Arzani and Koita are fully grown, but the others keep growing! They will be truly powerful warriors by the time they are fully grown.

 

Injuries

Cangiano missed 10 days, Koita missed 10 days and Scamacca missed 1 month:

We had a strong season and are now in front of Scratch's golden boys. I am most proud of the teamwork the pack showed to get so many assists.

 

Final Thoughts

We will only get stronger from here. Scratch's crew has our respect, but we do not fear them and we should be able to build a bigger lead next season. But for now we rest.

Thanks for reading...

Everything are going very well except Arzani maybe. He doesn’t seems to be much impressive but the other lads are carrying him well.

Arzani is smaller than the other hunters. Normally he has to wait until they tire before he can feed. But he has heart and all the lads love him like a brother.
