Career Kickback is Back - Career 001 [SPURS]


Recommended Posts

WARNING THIS IS A LONG MESSAGE!Β πŸ™‚

Hi Guys,

You may remember me as the rookie that did some badge challenges back in FMM 21. But I suddenly disappeared, well truth be told I started playing in PC but I've taken the decision I'll be playing Mobile again since it's free on Netflix.

Now that doesn't mean I haven't been keeping an eye here haha... Secretly I've been watching all of you post awesome content for 2 years and I've tried out few things [including some of last years badge challenge] since the game came out.

I'm going to start my first post by Playing Career mode with my Fav club - Tottenham. I will be doing 2/3 saves with Spurs. As I want to try something's out before venturing to other clubs. This is my first save.

This save is not realistic, I am just looking to be wacky and experimental and have fun. Hence why I will exploit any bugs i find (hehehehe). I've loaded England, Spain, Italy, Germany and France.

TACTICS:

I am going to be using Don Carlo Ancelotti's famous Diamond 442 formation from AC Milan. The main reason being I wanted to see if my CAM will be able to mimic Kaka or Rui Costa numbers with Rotation. I know people have posted the tactics here in prev versions but I just made one on my own based on what i thought will work.

GOAL/OBJECTIVE:

1. To match the amount of trophies Don Carlo's AC Milan team won. Let's be honest this is more for fun then actual challenge.

2. Make sure your atleast two different players win Balon D'or. [Like Shevchenko and Kaka]

CLUB STAFF:

I'm a big believer of having all Gold Staff so whoever was silver, I let them take Exam and if they failed, i sacked them πŸ€£πŸ˜…. Here's my Clubs Staff-

TRANSFERS!

Outgoings:

I sold all my wingers, center backs and some fullbacks. All Academy Players sold apart from the high potential ones. I made a Total of 458 Million.

Incomings:

Now here's where things get interesting if i may say so πŸ€£πŸ™Œ.

Goalkeeper:Β 

I needed a Keeper to compete with Vicario as I want to see if I can develop two World Class Gks. So I decided to go get the one Keeper i wanted Spurs to actually sign irl.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-18-09-512_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.9e4b0f5ceb40303a884976d122d25432.jpg

Best part is Mamardashvilli is similar to Vicario but both of their best stats are different. He's also my most expensive signing ☺️.

CBs:

I would not be making the same mistake every Spurs manager made, keeping Dier and Davies as backups. So off they went. So did Romero, i do not need a rash CB. So i went shopping for not 1, not 2 but 3 Centre Backs!!!

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-18-18-785_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.2513966a5505c19438ccacf7c94823dc.jpg

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-18-37-169_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.a1070edc2b0231ce675429a7d7ec4b63.jpg

My star CB is Tomori. I still don't understand how he's so underrated in the game every year. But i love it πŸ₯΅πŸ€Œ.

Bought Klostermann for his versatility plus he's always been a good performer for me in previous editions. Plus he was dirt cheap.

St. Juste was just priced right for me to feel it was a reasonable deal. Plus he's really just a back-up.

Wingbacks:

I really needed two wingbacks to rotate with Udogie and Porro. But I ended up buying 3.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-18-46-904_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.84ae7ca65559e5596119ee424d39dc6d.jpg

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-18-57-618_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.fee27d6cda327ab8829f8da74df8fc09.jpg

I bought Mazraoui [he wasn't cheap 🀣] and Pepe thinking I could rotate them. But as i was scrolling through the teams I saw a certain Veteran up for grabs.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-19-04-973_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.94ba787429e4d4193355a9cca6e5936a.jpg

I couldn't avoid it πŸ˜‚. He bought back so many memories so I bought him along. Hopefully he's not too injury prone yeah? πŸ˜…

Midfield:

Now i needed a huge midfield change. And i couldn't make a mistake here cause it was the main reason I did this save. Plus i sold all my wingers πŸ˜‚.

Let's start with the Deep Lying Playmaker:

I wanted someone experienced and calm to mimic Pirlo. Unfortunately Toni Kroos was too damn expensive salary wise. I just couldn't pull it off.

So, I got a man I've always respected for his incredible Career in Spain.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-19-22-170_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.8e2ab2793c303f006ea312d0fba317d7.jpg

But he's old now so I can't expect him to play every game. Hence i went shopping again.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-19-15-809_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.5e573fa7267a0c1105c54c3891596b2e.jpg

Yes another Spaniard. I don't like managing in Spain (die to release clause rules) but i do love their players πŸ˜‚. So yeah DLP led by Spaniards. If i can't have a Pirlo-esque guy, imma get a Xabi Alonso.

Central Mids/Box to Box Mids:

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-19-30-985_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.825494ea3f36cf627ac007b0ea6c8582.jpg

I don't need to explain why. Fabian has been a beast for so damn long now. My midfield is stacked anyway with Biss, Lo Celso, Sarr and Skipp.

Attacking Mid:

Now here's where it gets juicy. You see i like Maddison but he's prone to Injuries. So I thought lemme get someone robust. A guaranteed starter should Madders go down. But also capable of Rotation.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-19-54-010_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.4786f17529fefd0ff0aea9d3dcf92f0c.jpg

I got the next Korean Superstar. Of course I have to make the Son x Lee link-up yeah?? [Hint: this may lead me to take on Korea as Int. Coach]

So exciting. But wait, there's one more. Just like Spinazolla as I was lurking in team sheets i found someone with just one year left on his deal. So i offered his team about 10 mil and got him.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-19-48-617_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.cd82db687f7fc0a0f4de2276b886b9eb.jpg

πŸ₯Ή. I know he's injury prone. But eff it. If he's not gonna win Bundesliga, he's certainly gonna win EPL! He's here to be a bandwagon, plus he's so useful for mentoring πŸ‘

Strikers:

This is simple, I need depth with Richarlison, Brennan Johnson etc gone. Son is there as my Poacher. But i need big bad men who can just bulldoze defences.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-20-18-486_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.4aac5f82f6752059a9ce2c50912ec1d1.jpg

So I went and got two guys who i thought could do the job and also be good for poaching if Son is unavailable.

But then after all this i still had about 50 million. So i thought. Lemme try to one up Brentford.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-23-10-058_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.79b22ce40e4886c6e53c81419692cdfd.jpg

I know he wouldn't be available until the end of Jan. But gosh... I couldn't resist getting him on a reasonable amount - 36 mil πŸ₯΅πŸ™Œ. He could be a banger of an option to rotate with.

SUMMARY OF INCOMINGS:

So yeah that's all my transfers. Here's a page sc:

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-17-44-978_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.e026b83c6d3d70f42bbe249b3778e7a7.jpg

Now I know some were overpriced (Like my GK) but I'm happy with the deals I made. You'll also have noticed they all have Backup roles. Yeah, i didn't know who would start plus I didn't want to play players out of role obligation if they didn't perform as i thought they would.

FINANCE:

Screenshot_2023-11-15-09-24-33-294_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.790cad73eb9383205a8cb995dcd45c52.jpg

This is my club finance right now. Everything's looking alright πŸ‘.

EXTRA NOTES:

In real life Spurs has an advance agreement with this guy so i couldn't do anything about it.

He's so young. Great for my future πŸ˜ƒ. Also I have one Wonderkid under my shortlist.

Son of Legendary Striker - Robin Van Persie 🀩🀩. I'll be keeping an eye out for an opportunity to get him.

OUT ON LOAN:

These guys are my future players [hopefully], they're the ones I will look to for replacing my current stars.

Opening Game Update:

Oh Mamardashvilli πŸ˜‚. Brother had an Own Goal. Not a great way to debut. But he also made some key saves later on which earned him a 7 match Rating.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-12-07-59-310_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.3e4a981c588d36fc11c2541030000fc6.jpg

But there was one man who had a horrible game.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-12-08-26-251_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.0c86c76c8253749ee49f0e0ee62930de.jpg

Mr. Porro. 4 😭. And i gave him the full match cause i thought he could shake it off but 5 became 4 πŸ˜‚.

Anyway that's done. Mid season Update asap πŸ‘.

Oh also forgot to mention in my main Message:

Fabian was injured but I insisted on the transfer.

His debut is a but delayed πŸ‘.

Two Months update.

Well, the tactic works. But it's my strikers who are firing. Not my cam.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-15-31-49-514_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.7a85cfb9c5fcf202b022b2e888bb92d4.jpg

Two months and i only lost to Manchester City. To be fair I could have lost to Chelsea and Arsenal in Carabao Cup too.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-14-27-42-013_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.8139ffcac02f417a5a2bfb237896401b.jpg

Like the offside goals were very close I must say.

Then i beat Arsenal on Penalties. Sheesh. πŸ˜…πŸ‘.

I won one manager of the month award [August]. Could have won September too if i beat Man City. It's just annoying cause I lost to Arteta πŸ˜’.

Injuries:

Not gonna lie, the injuries came so quickly.

Screenshot_2023-11-15-15-00-04-365_com.netflix_NGP.FootballManagerMobile.thumb.jpg.c7778a87891f72917b4caa1690f1d33a.jpg

Started with my loaned out player.

Then Fabian got injured πŸ₯². And if that wasn't enough, both Udogie and Spinazolla gets sidelined. Spinazolla immediately after the Man City game sheesh.

Retirement [lol]:

This Taremi thought he could retire next summer after I spent 29.5 mil on him πŸ˜‚. Not a chance buddy.
