Career Ferguson to 1k round 2 *Restarted*

Recommended Posts

Having recently completed a Endrick to 1k challange I got a feel for these Endrick took me 13 seasons but was my first time trying the challenge so went in blind no clue no experience high expectations how wrong I was it look me ages to figure out what I needed player wise and tactically tbh I still dunno if I have it down but am here to try again this time a little closer to home, Ireland to be precise.

I've never signed this kid before but in my previous save he was killing it at bayern later in the game so the future looks bright! 

Not only did I get him signed up I also got rid of rabbi matondo who has attitude issues to say the lease so potentially a win win.

This is his stats already promising at 17, with 13 areial, 15 shooting and a massive 16 stamina already which is huge, more game time more goals hopefully. Another huge win is already he wants a heavier training schedule! 

 

Aiming to train him as a target man to start out hopefully boost that areial stat and hoping to get quagliarella in to mentor him, having learned about his excellent personality traits during the last challange @scratch I believe uses him?? Only thing I notice is his aerial isn't great but what do I know am a noob!!

 

Need to do some wheeling and dealing Rangers have a aging squad so need to do alot first few seasons as per normal I'll be trying to get in wonder kids to build around

Nice choice but evan Ferguson will not Develop in 1st session.. 

He won't develop? I'll be happy with a few stats and maybe pick up a couple good traits would be nice. That's why I struggled with Endrick didn't have many positive personality traits which hurt his consistency alot the first half dozen seasons

Finally ready to start the season, it's first time ive loaded multiple leagues so I've been having some fun picking up a lot of players mostly from Deepheats Spanish release clause guide which is a brilliant source tbf never know such thing existed found it by complete chance.

Been taking tips from a few of the big hitters on here. I've brought in alot of youngsters hoping at least half of them can develop into decent talents but the money I spent on them I imagine most will be a win either way.

Like I said I bought alot of players Ferguson with a cash/player exchange with matondo, Carillo my main buy big money but hoping to use him and quags for mentoring, batruna, kacavanda, pavon, nakai, nwoso are all guys I've bought before the rest I've found via the Spanish release guide haven't signed or heard of the majority of them before but I've seen a few mentioned so hoping to replicate there form for my team (Rosas).

Players out I sold a few loaned alot, selling my captain may pay off but might kick me in a baws, kamara and morelos I normally punt as I don't rate either roofe just annoys me with his injuries, sakala was one I was tempted to keep as he's done really well for me in the past I dunno if he's gonna suit the system tho. 

All in all a 44.5 million income with a 52 million spend. 

 

I've brought in enough guys to create 2 possible teams which I plan to rotate quite regular to help grow the youngsters likely rotate Carillo and ferguson so not sure how many ferguson will get season 1 as it'll prob be 60/30mins most games. 

 

Time to start the season

Season 1 by all standards was pretty poor but as noted above i bought in a ton on youngsters to try build for the future most have had good exposure to first team football and stats have grown so hopefully make for a stronger season 2.

Right off the bat some positive growth from Evan +2 areial and shooting and a +3 in movement should all help next season

I rotated him alot with carillo and he picked up a injury for a month aswell which didnt help his numbers but 30 in the first season am happy enough with as im trying to build a team of super kids so onwards and upwards on these numbers.

Team suffered quite a few injuries this season this was the worst of them losing one of my top midfielders for 12 months!! I also lost rosas for 8 months early in the season so that hindered me a bit at right back.

A nice spread mostly carrillo and Ferguson but quite a few from the wingers aswell ill need to try fix that this season while also limiting carrillos game time to try up Evans numbers

decent spread for assists but in all honesty i didnt score nearly enough goals this season which im actually quite annoyed about.

tbh a pretty poor start to my management career picking up the scottish cup and league double, I lost league cup final to celtic, in europe I went into europa league losing to monaco in the qualifiers, I won the group and somehow ended up with a draw against Liverpool in the next round I went out 4-2 on aggregate that was the end of my european adventure for this season.

41 wins, 6 draws but 12 losses this season is unacceptable and ill be expecting much better this season maybe switching 11's pretty much week in week out wasnt such a good idea when it came to consistancy but still managed to win the league while also improving alot of the youngsters stats is a trade off i suppose next season i wont be so lenient on failure

Sub ur players around 60 minutes mark max and sign those players as sub who can play atleast 2-3 positions  and rotate squad in every match u play.. apart from main striker no one should play back to back matches In 1st Season.

there after u can pick which winger u should play as many matches as ur Striker play ... And rest both players in same matches if they need rest..

Season 2  began with a higher expectation having spent the majority of first season chopping and changing to try grow stats of young players.

I sold/realeased alot of players this season cutting alot of deadwood and selling on a few youngsters who didnt make the cut.

incomings were fairly low wasting money on skov olson but becker turned out a good signing plus a new number 1.

much better season this year after the shambles of a first season drawing 2 and losing 5 most of which were in europe.  Liverpool again knocked me out, this time in quarter finals of champions league (I will get revenge one day)

Evan seems to have peaked already which is highly frustrating his PA has peaked very early stopped getting growth after games towards the end of this season, im hoping theres still a bit of growth for his physical stats, Aerial was very frustrating 2 years of focused training and it hasnt budged since his early season 1 mentor session with Carillo, I think ill need to reevaluate my tactical plan, wingers wont work with 15 Aerial.

a good season for goals hitting 75 in 52 games, it helps that the lad is lethal from the penalty spot, im left to wonder what he could do if he was a little better in the air tho. this season im hoping to get in a few players and find a new position for Renier that kids top class he scored 25 goals this season with 17 assists in the AMC position which is great for him but not ideal for evan.

yeah I had tried to do that season1 anyway got 5/6 youngsters that are good enough for my first team now its trial and error tho on a few of them, i now need to figure out stats for pressing forwards rather than wingers as evens aerial ability isnt really up to scratch which im gutted about as it started out pretty high already i was hoping to get him to 18-20 hes stalled at 15 tho.

Very good jump on 2nd Season...i think Ferguson will hit 100 sooner than endricks

Yeah I'm quietly confident he will hit 1k quicker than Endrick,  Stat wise Endrick will blow Evan out the water, the fact he already seems to have peaked is surprising but the fact hes good at penalties should speed things up, my version of Endrick was a horrible penalty taker probably missed over 100 of them (maybe a slight exaggeration) but he missed A LOT!!! I'm not gonna count international goals this time as ive no interest in trying to get the Ireland manager job to try get him international goals

If he increase the tally of goals next season than u dont need INT goals ..  u able to score 100 goals in the last season of previous career.. if u managed to do it in this career within 5 season it will be great doesn't matter with or without INT goals.

HE'S BACK! 

For those that were following before will know I was getting a new phone which has now arrived and I've restarted the challenge, Rangers again, Ferguson again, and I've loaded Scotland, England and Spain again for larger player pool and to pick up there cheap Spanish Gems 💎

 

Transfers in as pretty much as above Carrillo, Baturina, Pavon, Nakai, Renier after his excellent growth last time round this time he's training as a DLP to help limit his goal scoring abilities. Plus all of the young Spanish boys from last time.

Players out was pretty much the same selling anyone I could to raise funds for the shopping spree, most went at the start of the season except Goldson who went at the end when Bournemouth put in a random 15m bid for him couldn't say no to that. 166389236_Screenshot_20230323_071509_FM23Mobile.thumb.jpg.4f50a3dca697c1f8f7db680ef7768f80.jpg1701825172_Screenshot_20230323_071527_FM23Mobile.thumb.jpg.81302a07994792cb50daa214c3d3798c.jpg

Now onto me as manager it was a great campaign domestically not so great in Europe going out in champions league group stage finishing bottom to Barca, Napoli and Porto I was disappointed in all honesty it helped, having n week day games I managed to rest my guys giving me strongest squad domestically I won the treble with a unbeaten season winning 36 and drawing 2 in the league, my best start ever I think.

Now for the juicy bit how did evan do? This is his starting stats. 

565358411_Screenshot_20230310_065927_FM23Mobile.jpg.b3070f45c4182c9da72a9833fb49da4d.thumb.jpg.04303e3d392eef3fdf391713562c5da5.jpg

This is his current stats.

Some really nice growth this year helped by a double dip with Carrillo I manged to get his heading up. To 17 which seems to be helping. I've currently got him working with Ryan Jack hoping to pass on some of his outstanding traits in loyalty, workrate and professionalism🤞

Now for his goal stats he had a superb first season learning his trade domestically seemed to help scoring regular against the bread and butter and the boost to his areial made a real difference. 

1302195791_Screenshot_20230323_071553_FM23Mobile.thumb.jpg.cb6d0923e5ed3d881cfefa8730faaf67.jpg

49 goals in 35 games is alot better than I hoped for my midfield is still scoring quite a few but hopefully that'll slow down second season now Evans almost complete (that low growth potential is good and bad he's already a 5 star player so not alot of room to grow) but he has the stats in the right places and the right mentality to succeed. 

 

Season 1 - 49

This is really good start .. now u know how to increase Aerial attribute of Strikers.. ?? He can reach 19-20 aerial. 

Not too sure yet mate not started on second season yet if his areal will grow anymore I don't think hell get any more areial ability from Carrillo I've got him on intensive Areial training tho so will see what happens i hope to get a few more point tho but as above he's got little room to improve already according to coaches

Bit of a early update I've managed to pick up JWP personally I've never signed him but I've read he's one of the best assisters for these type challenges 😁 Southampton got relegated so got him cheap he was still rated over 20 million enquired they told me 9.5🤣😍

As you can see a lot more left than came in making a smaller but stronger squad. 

 

Another unbeaten league campaign this year I did draw 4 times tho and a cup double. I lost to athletic madric in last 16 of champions league this year after they scored 2 late goals to go thru. 

Now onto Evan a strange thing happened I'm not sure how or when but this came up

1448601783_Screenshot_20230328_105613_FM23Mobile.thumb.jpg.ee36ae818379a498765cf3dce6596890.jpg

Obviously he starts the game off as Irish he was Irish in the last screen shot at end of last season this happened in December also this

1123498686_Screenshot_20230328_143850_FM23Mobile.thumb.jpg.34cf7f012fd626422da6b665024da458.jpg

His Irish under 21 caps became English under 21 it's a bit odd but doesn't really matter I Guess. 

904224596_Screenshot_20230329_102700_FM23Mobile.thumb.jpg.c6146fa1b21a518e2a371bd54adf291f.jpg

 

An increase in goals but not as many as I expected or hoped for he started off flying but hit a dry patch mid season that slowed him right down but that's him broke the 100 mark so its something I suppose but hoping to crack at least 75 next season, unsure wither to stick or twist with my formation to get this but see what happens with incoming players am hoping I can find some top class regens this summer Messi just retired so he's one I always look for even if he steals goals😂

Good total you have 3 more Seasons to reach 100 goals in a Season...and with good mentors both new RW can reach 17-18 crossing dribbling.. easily.

Yeah I've had them both working with pavon this season stats have improved but not to they levels not yet at least I've got some decent crossers in the team already so chopping and changing with the new boys, I'm liking the higher areial ability on Ferguson I was hoping to get it up to 20 but he seems to have hit his limit he's not progressing anymore hoping he can sneak a point or 2 from training rather than game experience
