Challenges The one that got away - Rory Wilson to 1k?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

The one that got away, a short back story of this kid, being a Rangers fan I've always kept an eye on the youth squads where possible, Rory Wilson at youth level was an incredible talent for Rangers scoring a insane amount of goals, which got him a transfer to Villa on his 16th birthday I believe when he was eligible for a pro contract, I along with alot of other Rangers fans were gutted to see this kid go, I haven't followed his since but Google shows he's done well at the villa U18s.

 

So I've brought him home, not your typical 1k prospect starting out fairly weak and I doubt he has a hugely high ceiling like others (Even Ferguson for example)

Starting attributes all he really has going for him is shooting and a wee bit of pace.

End of season 1 stats his shooting, heading and movement have all spiked but not alot of movement elsewhere sadly and he's almost reached his peak which is worrying!!

43 goals in his first season from where he started I'm pretty happy with how he got on

I'm pretty sure he's good enough to smash it in Scotland. Depends how quickly you can build the type of squad around him that can get the best out of him. Great start. Best of luck. 👍

Tbh it's trying to remember how to do these challenges only ever completed 1 before and I used Endrick so was alot easier with his potential

I scored alot of goals first season just over 100 and had great league form drawing 3 and winning the other 35, got smashed in Europe tho played a bit too open I think, free flowing attacking football and shots from distance, quite direct, If I can get my wingers and AP to cut down on the goals this season it'll be a big help, need to swap up my instructions slightly maybe short passing and through balls, try get Rory some more goals, tho he did finish strongly scoring a couple of hattricks and a few braces the last 10 games.

Was a bit of a mixed bag season 2 I did manage to get his numbers to improve but my squad seemed to hit a wall mid season, I went from scoring +40 goals in the first 12 league games throughout the team to hitting a wall and scraping 1-0 wins/draws/losses for the next 12 so spent a while trying to make a new formation/tactic. Still not convinced this will work long term but it'll do till I can figure something else out, midfield is still scoring too many goals.

Rory managed a bit of growth stat wise but he's still lacking in some important stats, I'd love his decision making and technique to improve but not looking likely, He is always offside!! Must have had about 30 goals ruled out from him this season which would have made his numbers alot more impressive

Nice start buddy, have to admit, I've never heard of the fella before 😄 

Haha can't say I'm surprised mate he's not made any first team appearances in real life far as I'm aware, he's excellent at youth level tho, I think I've got a proper challenge on this one tho hes not exactly world class 😅

Always accept a bid and then cancel when you’re asked to confirm the transfer. They don’t get upset that way. 

This I didn't know!! Cheers man. Tho I can't actually open the game for some reason 😭

I've had to uninstall the game and start over, couldn't open the game for 2 days just showed as black screen, half way thru season 1 using Rory Wilson again, he's improving faster tho areal had 2 massive jumps in a row 4 stats the first time then 3, he's jumped from 12 aerial to 19 in 4 months, hoping to get that extra 1 to make it 20 ive noticed a big increase in headed goals from the last save already

Forgot to take a screenshot at start of the save but his stats are above in the top post massive attacking improvements this year he maybe still got a bit of growth in him as I tried to limit his games slightly

20 aerial, 17 shooting and movement are huge for 1 season development, I'd like his decisions and technique to improve this coming season hopefully but can't complain about his improvement season 1

I did limit his game time slightly this season as he picked up a few minor injuries and the low stamina doesn't help either, but 37 in 32 I'm happy enough should have been more, he didn't score in his last 4 games which deflated the stats slightly but decent enough start (AGAIN!)

Season 2 completed I found a winning tactic this season getting a domestic treble and making the quarter finals of the champions league losing 3-2 on aggregate to A.Madrid not gonna give the tactic away but this is a rough idea of my starting line up and formation for those who might ask 

tactic????

Figure it out, I play a 433 with big dominant centre backs nothing fancy big and strong can tackle and head the ball that's all you need, midfield again physically strong can run all day pressing and moving the ball forward to the pacey front 3.

Rory himself goes against everything I have behind him he's big and dominant in the air but he still lacks strength and stamina not that it's holding him back if u look at his season.

Couple of his stand out performances

OUTRAGEOUS!! almost 2 goals per game with 70 in only 36 games!! Breakout season for him hopefully I can match or beat that this coming season with a few new boys coming in to bring some youth to my aging lineup

 

Totals

S1 -37

S2- 70

107 total goals

Season 3 complete, actually a wee bit of a let down, more games this season but less goals, his low stamina is really killing this challenge and sadly it's just not improving 🤬

Just the 67 goals this season, not bad but need to improve or this is gonna take a LONG time!!

Season 4 complete Rory having his best season so far in terms of goals and average rating, I keep thinking to myself if this boy had better stamina I would be hitting 100 goals a season, as I have to sub him around the 60 min mark every game 😭

11 Stamina is a joke!! And severely limiting his mins, if he could manage 90 mins every game it would work out about 15 full 90 mins every season that's ALOT of missed opportunity to score goals especially as he's almost hitting 2 goals every game the last few seasons could be +25 goals with better stamina 😢 

 

Also what's a guy gotta do to get a Scotland cap these days 🤣🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

I've got 3 mate not made any difference tho, suppose it would be cheating with 20 aerial, 20 shooting and the ability to run for 90 mins, I've had him on focused stamina training for the last 2 seasons hasn't budged tho

Slightly worrying the Stamina levels, don't think he will progress much more on that. Other then that, smashing it

Yeah I think he's already at his peak no more improvements incoming sadly, but should still manage +60 most seasons from now on the stamina will limit him hitting big numbers tho
