Career IALWTTT - Déjà vu (S6) - DONE! ✔️


 Share

Recommended Posts

As always, I'll be starting my journey on this years game with my "It's a long way to the top" challenge attempt.

I've spent the past few months perfecting a tactic for this on FMM22. Which ended up being a complete waste of time because my tactic hasn't crossed over onto the new version very well at all. 🤦‍♂️🤣

I wanted to start at a League Two team but that proved difficult. So, just like last year I managed to get the Wrexham job, which is great. As I mentioned above, my tactic proved to be useless and after starting in 6th place when I took charge I managed to end up 15th. 🤷‍♂️ I decided to start again, using a tactic that was very mediocre in my testing on FMM22 which seems very good on this years version.

So, here we go.

I couldn't resist. They were sitting in 4th in the League and obviously have the best squad in the division.

The likes of Dalby, Davies and Hayden were sold after all games had been played. Couldn't turn down that sort of money at this early stage.

Clarkson, Forster-Caskey and Lees agreed to join ahead of next season. Puts me in a good position going into League Two.

A good season overall. I'm not all that bothered about the cups. We won the FA Trophy with a second string team playing the majority of matches.

I'll address the outgoings first. Some really good players, for this level had to leave. The fees offered were too good to refuse.

I'm in disbelief that I could sign a few of these players for League One. My wage budget was increased via using pretty much all my transfer funds into my wage balance so that helped.

Schulz, Shoretire, Bakayoko, Dahoud, Oliver & Talisca all come in. Add that to Byram, Fraser and the like I'm excited to share this season with you all.

I'm flying through this. My tactic is working wonders. I need to add some quality going into the Premiership now though. A striker is a must after Haller turned out to be very disappointing in the Championship and Balogun probably won't be good enough.

Thanks for reading. 👍

Well done mate, some quality transfers for L1 like you said. Shoretire is a bit of a headline but the unheralded Joelinton is a quality signing! I was unimpressed with him at this level beforebut he seems to have done the business for you... in midfield?

Yeah, big Joe plays in his best position. A rampaging CM! I, like the great Eddie Howe can just obviously get the best out of him. 😛

This new season is proving difficult to win games. A lot of draws so far. 😑

Away games are rough. Having experienced/old defenders with leadership personalities is wild this year though. Kids can't defend a thing.

Definitely. Im Finding that out! I have 2 very promising CB's that I'm trying to "break in" but I'm having to go with the old guard just to get results. The main thing is that results are coming.

Funny, I’ve had the opposite experience the past couple of seasons in the Prem. My young CBs have really saved my bacon. The older guys who should be performing well just went a bit meh! 🤷‍♂️

That's strange, isn't it. Maybe it's the players in question rather than an overall "rule" then? I've attempted not to use too many regens. The two CB's I signed for the future had better attributes than my existing CB's so I started them. Maybe, they weren't as good as the attributes say. Which is common.

Cheers man. This is my World. If I'm ever in between long winded challenges I always end up doing things like this.

I was given £56m to spend after telling the board I would achieve a safe mid-table position. 

Schulz, Bakayoko and Oliver move on after doing their job and helping us get to the Premiership.

I signed a lot of players. Richarlison, B. Williams, Douglas Luiz, Laird, Fabio Viera and even NEYMAR (he's 34 and ended up being quite disappointing) sign for free.

Odegaard, Sergio Gomez, N. Williams and Baku added some quality for reasonable fees. We should have enough about us to be competitive anyway.

I really wanted to qualify for the Europa League which is why I really went for the Cup competitions. It worked as we won the Carabao Cup. That meant it didn't really matter how the League went as long as I finished mid-table or above. However, we were very good. Too many draws, most of which came from losing positions so we're very much points gained at the time.

I really, really didn't want Champions League football next season. But, I couldn't help it. 🤣

Off the back of our Carabao Cup win I got this message:

Quite a lot of business done. Becker was one of the youngsters I bought but wasn't happy with so cashed in whilst teams were willing to pay top money for him. De Jesus has amazing attributes but just doesn't perform as I would like. There's nothing on his coach report that suggests he shouldn't be incredible. He just isn't. 🤷‍♂️

Added so much quality. Essential considering what awaits this season. Mason Mount was signed in January after Carvalho or Reinier didn't make the impact i had hoped they would. They were decent but Mount took us to another level.
