    The Warriors: The Battle for Goals Begins

    I had decided which nations warriors would be representing the nation of Foxlandia and so Harry the Hairy Herald was sent forth to gather them to the cause. Harry approached the walls of the mighty city of Amsterdam and cleared his throat. People of Holland I come to gather your four greatest warriors to the Foxlandia cause. Send them forth and together will bring great glory to our nations. *silence* Then from the walls flew a single cog, straight and true it hit Harry right on top of his yud! The people of Holland want nothing to do with Foxlandia or your leader Fuddled “Foxy” Fox. His defeat in the VWC brought great shame upon the Dutch people and we reject his request for our best warriors and instead we will offer our help to the mighty @Ian. Then the gates of Amsterdam were flung open and the angry mob flew out. It was all Harry could do to get away and he never stopped riding until he came to the walls of Milan. People of Milan I request sanctuary from the Dutch and my master would request your greatest warriors to the Foxlandia cause....and a lasagne wouldn’t go amiss either. The gates opened and out strolled the three colossus of Milan. Two were clearly goal machines. And one looked like he could assist once he had grown a bit more. This is all we can offer you Harry now leave our lands and don’t return until those three are legends. Harry and the trio rode north and then west and came to the principality of Monaco. As he rode past worried he had only gathered three warriors to the cause a young man appeared. I hear you require warriors who know where the back of the net is. With relief Harry had found a fourth warrior to the cause. Harry knew he had done well to get out of Holland with his life and he had done even better with the warriors he had gathered to the cause as they looked like they could fulfil his masters dreams of a triple 1kc. Let battle commence!

    Vibe World Cup 2020: The Final Results

    Welcome to the Vibe World Cup Final 2020. It is a gloriously sunny afternoon here in Cheltenhamshire for this eagerly anticipated clash between the Dutch Dynamos and the Parmo Army and by the end of the day one team will be crowned VWC champions 2020 along with someone also taking home the Golden Mobile trophy for the competitions highest points scorer. This is an event that is starting to build up a history so before the final let’s remind ourselves of the previous winners. VWC 2018 - Link 🥇- Wales - @Taff and @Nucleus 🥈 - England - @Rob and @Woody 🥉 - Benelux - @PriZe and @Titjes Golden Mobile - @PriZe VWC 2019 - Link 🥇- Scotland - @samhardy and @Ian 🥈- Japan - @Ashez and @Foxy 🥉- England - @Rob and @Woody Golden Mobile - @Foxy The Final The third place playoff wasn’t necessarily high on quality play but it certainly had drama as England took the 🥉 medal thanks to @broodje kip not following the rules regarding nationalities he could use. Luckily in the final there was no such problems and it was a straight fight of who could amass the most points and take home the trophy. Netherlands - @Foxy The only league of choice for Player 2’s in this event was Portugal it seems as all four of us played in that league, I was the only one to go with Benfica though as I didn’t fancy my chances of winning either European Trophy so I simply thought I would get rid of the best squad in the league. This was my teams. I won the league but it was close as it went to the final game of the season between myself and Porto although we did have a 3 point cushion going into that game so it wasn’t too nervous. I dropped a lot of league points though which I made up for a bit with my +50 GD to give me... 128pts from the league stage. I made both domestic cup finals winning the League cup which gave me an extra 20pts My aim was to finish 3rd in my CL group and going into the EL which I did but I only managed the Quarter Finals before Lazio dumped me out. This gives me a total of 148pts but I still have my bonus points from pairs that scored 20+ goals. I managed to get all 4 of my attacking pairs to score 20 or more which gave me an extra 40pts on my total. This gave me a final points total of... 188pts The North East - @samhardy We saw @Kanegan struggle in the bronze match and get sacked as PSG manager and that was the same club choice that “big” samhardy made as well. He will need to do better than Kane though other wise this final will be as good as over. The Seaham Space Cowboy went with these players. I am already on the back foot as Sam won the league with a hefty 87pts and 42 GD giving him an initial 129pts and a 1pt lead over my score at the same stage. Just like me Sam never did anything in Europe so it is down to domestic cups and pairs goals to see who has a half time lead. More good news for the North East as the French Cup was collected and 20pts along with it. The difference maker was that Sam could only get three pairs to 20+ goals. This gave Sam an extra 30pts onto his total and means he scored.... 179pts At the half way point it is very close as the Dutch go in with a 9pt lead in the match. Netherlands 188pts - The North East 179pts The North East - @smoggy90 This is a chance for Smoggy to put some pressure on now as a good score will leave the Dutch chasing for the title. Smoggy went with Sporting Lisbon and had these pairs and I do think the inclusion of Jack Rodwell was a real slap in the face for his Mackem team mate. The Teeside Terror was straight at it as well with a magnificent league performance losing just once and only having 5 draws. The 89pts coupled with the +54GD gave him an initial score of 143pts. The points kept coming as well as he won the League Cup to add another 20pts but despite a good run to the Semi Finals that was as good as it got in Europe. Still that gives Smoggy a score of 163pts before his pairs goal points are added. Smoggy was clever in his team building and managed to get an incredible 5 pairs to score 20 or more goals adding a further 50pts. This gives Smoggy a final total of... 213pts The North East score 392pts and lead by 204pts Netherlands - @BatiGoal That means Bati needs to score 204pts to force a penalty shootout and 205pts for the title. It is a big ask but the Bangkok Goal Machine has been on fire throughout the whole tournament and even with his history in finals who would back against him at this stage? I thought Bati might travel back to his native Holland for this challenge but clearly his banishment from that country isn’t over yet so he took charge of Brondby in Denmark. This was the squad he put together. Winning the league was a must in this challenge and Bati duly delivered. He had 83pts and a 31 GD giving him 114pts at this stage. That low GD total is looking like it will make things a bit tricky as he needs to find at least 90pts from somewhere to force a penalty shootout. That isn’t impossible though if he could win the cups and get 5 pairs over 20 goals. That just leaves the Golden Mobile Award to hand out. That brings this years VWC to a close so thank you to everyone who took part as I think you all contributed to a fun event and thank you to everyone who has followed along. See you all next year.

    The Warriors: The Battle for Goals Begins

    In a world of mere humans four warriors stand tall. Heroes, legends, myths... they are icons... at least in their own mind. In this career they shall do battle in a head to head to head to head. @Foxy is known in some quarters as the Gloucestershire Gladiator, but to most he is known as the Gloucestershire Gardener. Wielding a pitchfork like a sword and hoisting a lawnmower like a mechanical shield he is a force to be reckoned with. On day release from Foxlandia he will be a beast in battle. Residing from Seahouses, Britain’s answer to Aquaman is @Ian. When he isn’t busy lifting boats over his head like Vibe’s own Eddie Hall he is dismantling leaderboards like the incessant sadist that he is. His eye for detail and the power inherited by a force known as ‘George the Gorilla’ means he will blast his way through the competition. Carved from the chalk cliffs of Dorset is a man known as @Rob. Armed with the ear-piercing shrieks of a baby to disable his opponents he can take on the best. Plus he has done about 378 careers with club selected, which helps. Vibe’s reigning Olympian will be a challenge to all. @Woody has the best weapon of all in the battle: the Pecker. This weapon can do all manner of damage and cannot he underestimated in its impact. His appetite for testing (if quizzes are quizzical, what are tests?) means he will formulise a strategy to peck the others in to submission. A legend amongst all. Those are the competitors, but what’s the challenge? It’s simple: all four warriors will take the reigns at PSG. Each will then select a nation. From this nation they must select three strikers and one assister and sign them (other transfers are also allowed). The aim is to complete a TT and as many DTs and 1ks as possible amongst the strikers, along with racking up as many assists for the assister as they can. Goals from international management will count, as per the 1k/DT/TT rules; assists won’t. A lottery has been made: Woody will pick his nation first, followed by Ian, then Foxy, with Rob picking up the rear. There it is: the rules of combat are set. Let battle commence.

    I will stop now. This is my final attempt. Final Attempt Transfers Out Transfers In Season History So, a clean sweep. Tactics So, i went with a flank heavy formation with only a single BBM in the middle. Cup Runs League Performance So, GD + LP = 98 + 76 = 174 points Mane 72 points for Mane Salah 82 points for Salah Firmino 91 points for Firmino Total = 174 + 91 + 82 +72 = 419 points. Finally crossing the 400 barrier. What pleased me most was the 166 goals scored between the front three. @Rob, if you can do the needful. Cheers.

    I was going to post, but then I found the world’s greatest poet - St Edgar Cumberstein - who wrote this poem for us. (Photo of Durdle Door, where you can clearly see the stone missing from which a warrior was chiselled from) On the bright Dorset coast myths and legends are born, From mother nature’s hands a warrior was sworn, Chiselled by the stone of the famed Durdle Door, Was the form of a legend not witnessed before, Rob was his name, followed by a terrifying tribe, Who marched by his side as he stormed towards Vibe, Where he would face Foxy’s masses, challenge Ian’s orange position, And fight Woody’s army: the Spanish Inquisition, ‘But who is the tribe?’ this here poet hears you ask, Four feared English fighters are charged with the task, Blessed with great hair, Harvey Elliot shall assist, Three striking attackers who Rob did enlist, Morgan Rogers is battle-ready and bred from the Mancs, Joined by his neighbour, Mason Greenwood, who is built like a tank, From the lineage of Dembeles Karamoko competes in this war, Firing their way to the goal where they’ll continue to score, As Rob and his tribe powerfully march forth, Beyond the horizon Foxy comes from the North, Then from the West the scent of Woody appears, Heard from the East Ian’s battlecry meets ears, Cultivated from the compass of conflict, picked from posturing pretence, These warriors shall meet so let battle commence!

    The Warriors: The Battle for Goals Begins

    Good afternoon vibe, Here I am to reveal my choice of nation and players that are hopefully going to power in the goals for myself in this battle of the warriors. I went with Holland as my nation and the players I’ve chosen won’t need much introduction as I’ve gone for quality although I’ve never used any of the players previously so I’m intrigued as to how they will all develop later on if it all goes to plan. Here are my chosen challengers. Scorers Joshua Zirkzee A truly great youngster with plenty of promise and my plan is for him to be the central striker as the main man. Romano Postema Judging by his lower value the weakest player of my challengers but I have high hopes for him. I’ve given him the nickname of ‘The Postman’ so hopefully he’ll deliver lots of goals. I intend to play him just off centre to either the right or left as like the next player I shall reveal he’s either footed which gives us plenty of options. Myron Boadu A winger striker type who will mostly play as a pushed up inside forward and hopefully contribute plenty of goals. Again like the postman he’s either footed and could play at either FL/FR or even CF so plenty of options if we decide to dabble. Assister Mohamed Ihattaren Another promising looking youngster who looks like he’ll develop into a fine playmaker. I intend to play him on the left wing initially but he may well end up as a central midfield playmaker later on although I’ve actually signed Havertz for that role so we’ll see how it goes I guess. Anyway, his playmaking skill should come in useful even if he ends up as a full time winger you’d think. So those are my chosen challengers and now I best make a start. Thanks for reading.

    The Warriors: The Battle for Goals Begins

    Welcome peasants. I am the self proclaimed weaker member of the Warriors Four, but don't let my small mindedness fool you as i have bundles of vigur and determination. There have been many cities pillaged under my various regimes over the years and i hope to bring that experience to the warriors table. To help me on my journey i have four faithfull Padres. To the mere one cell morsels out there these gringo's may not look like much but are more than a match on their day. As you well may know by now my followers are of Spanish heritage from the darkest depths of Spains footballing underworld. Presenting.... My 3 strikers: Don't let their lack of value fool you. To help the 3 on their way i have chosen a man well versed in the supply and demand department, he is:.... There we have it, a four to be reckoned with. I bid you good day 😏

    Ian - La Masia Double Trouble - Season 2

    Season 1 Let’s see how the opening season went. Team Results The team performed reasonably well in winning the league comfortably and were also triumphant in the Spanish Cup but we did lose out to Real in the Super Cup final as they just pounded us in a 5-0 roasting. In Europe we were dumped out at the quarter final stage by Juventus after a closely contested tie and it’s safe to say young Carles Pérez getting himself sent off in the 8th minute of the second leg in Turin didn’t exactly help our cause. All in all though a decent enough opening season with 131 league goals scored and a goals per game ratio of 3.33 over all competitions which is pretty good I think. The Duo The two boys were doing fine and were both regularly contributing with goals and then in early March Abel suffered a strained thigh and subsequently missed 3 weeks. Fati then bruised his rib in training in early April and missed a week. In the build up to the final game of the season Fati broke his collarbone in training and in the final game of the season Ruiz suffered a chest injury. Obviously those last two injuries came right at the end of the season so no real problem but could this be a sign of things to come on the injury front? Abel Ruiz Abel really improved during the season with his movement and stamina jumping up a fair bit and he contributed 33 goals in the 41 games he played in and also chipped in with 9 assists so a reasonable start for him. Ansu Fati Fati scored 24 goals and also contributed 22 assists in the 40 games he played in and I’m guessing most of the assists were just him passing the ball to Messi for Messi to then just put the ball in the back of the net. I’ll keep track of the assists but they aren’t really something I’m focusing on. Not such great improvements in attributes for Fati but he’s still really young so patience will be required there. Challenge Score Season 01 Ansu Fati: 40 Games, 24 Goals and 22 Assists Abel Ruiz: 41 Games, 33 Goals and 9 Assists Combined Total: 57 Goals and 31 Assists Grand Total: 57 Goals and 31 Assists Thanks for reading.

    What I've Been Playing May A tad late this month as I've alot to cover as I've knocked three games out of my back log! Switch South Park The Fractured But Whole - I should start this off by saying I've never really watched the show, sure I've caught a couple of episodes over the years but I'm hardly a fan of the franchise, I bought into this experience purely from the perspective of expecting a funny but solid RPG experience. Did the game delivery on these expectations? Well yes and no. Firstly the game can be pretty funny in the typical childish yet risky/offensive type of humour the South Park series goes for, but in truth the jokes rarely got more than a smirk and they soon wore thin as the game repeats jokes throughout the 20 hour adventure, usually the first time they were pretty funny but by the end I'd lost interest in the humour side of the game. So was it at least a solid RPG experience? Well the battle system in this title is grid based which is one reason why I found it intriguing before purchase as it's a system I've enjoyed before, however unfortunately the South Park system isn't that in depth and can be pretty frustrating, especially as attacks have strict impact areas yet I never felt I had the tactical options to fully set up big chain attacks. It was more adapting turn by turn compared to attempting to set up opportunities for big attacks like the previous systems I've enjoyed. The battle system also incorporated some action RPG elements with little quick time events which when prompt on time offer various boosts to damage and your special meter. Finally the class system is wide open for your avatar as at various points you unlock new classes and you'll have the ability to mix and match attacks from the ones you've assigned yourself, however I found the team building aspects limiting as you can't selected your partner's loadouts and at times I felt like I wanted more options like these to personalise the experience. I will say it was an enjoyable system throughout and the game kept me engaged as the title does throw a few unique battles at you which were really fun, one boss battle late on especially added more of the tactical elements I'd hoped for throughout. Outside of the humour and the combat the game has a focus on exploring the town which was well done, I'm sure fans of the series would get a kick out of exploring all these locations as graphically the game could easily be mistaken for the show, however as a non fan of the series it was just an okay world to experience, I'm sure with more of a South Park history I'd have enjoyed it more. It's fair to say however there is a decent amount of things to do around town and in the games "dungeons" as you'll unlock abilities throughout which give access to hidden areas, items or general progress but even these got repetitive. My biggest gripe with the game and it's one that massively ruined combat and exploring for me was the inconsistent and constant load screens, honestly I feel a big chunk of my play time was just waiting for things to load. Getting into battle? Have a 10 odd second load screen. Moving screens in town? Here take a loading screen. Moving rooms in a house? Guess what more loading screens! They were constant and absolutely infuriating at times, especially as some were just stupidly long. It got to the point where I was actively trying to avoid combat or doing anything that would require a loading screen I didn't have to do. To end on a positive though I have to say my favourite aspect of this game had to be the super hero setting and story as I found it very unique for a RPG and enjoyable, the game is full of DC and Marvel references and I found them all very entertaining. The main plot of the game is you're kids playing superhero and you're the new kid on the block with the power of farting going by the name Butlord. You're trying to rescue a lost cat for the cash reward to kick start your own movie franchise and let's just say the story soon goes in a very bizarre and unexpected direction, yes it's incredibly stupid but it kept me pushing forward so it achieved its job. The character designs were top draw though as seeing these homemade child costumes and bases was just hilarious and reminded me of my own childhood, yeah don't judge lol. All in all I found this game enjoyable enough but it's pretty flawed in my opinion but the short run time for a RPG made it easier to swallow, even if I thought it could have been 3-5 hours shorter as the fluff was clear to see in the final sections of the game. I'm glad I've played it but I doubt I'd return to the series for the prequel or if any sequels are released, I'd give The Fractured But Whole a 6.5/10. Sphinx And The Cursed Mummy - I went into Sphinx expecting a 3D Zelda clone set in Egyptian times and that's essentially what I got, this title has some very rough parts I wish the remaster fixed but it was a solid experience. Story wise the game is basically split in two halves as this title features two playable characters which you jump between at regular intervals, in the one half you play as Sphinx who is on the typical hero route of stopping the big bad, however you also play as a mummy who was killed by the big bad during a ritual that Sphinx managed to interrupt so instead of the ritual killing the sacrifice it turned him into a mummy. Obviously that's a basic run down as while the story is decent it is a tad long winded but it does the job, I do like the fact however both paths interact with each other though as when you're Sphinx you'll find items for the mummy to use and vice versa when you're playing as the mummy. Gameplay wise I will start with the negatives though as there are a few, firstly this game is very much a game of its era in its design and structure, saving especially is a royal pain in the arse as save points aren't overly frequent and any game over respawns you at your last save point, so I quickly learnt to save often and to go out of my way to lock in my progress. I'd also say It's a massive shame the remaster didn't add voice acting to the game as the story is pretty speech heavy and dramatically animated but without voices it feels essentially empty, I think a voice over would have gone a long way to improving this title. Secondly the combat in Sphinx is some of the worst I've experienced in a long time, granted it's not really a big feature of the game but any combat sections had me groaning in boredom, frustration and tedium. You see the game uses the fairly typically 3 strike combat found in many games but this title doesn't have any targeting or lock on feature which means keeping track of enemies is a nightmare, especially ones that move fast, teleport or are practically invisible....Yeah the combat is just awful, you'll get the hang of it but it was never enjoyable unfortunately. My final moan would have to be the lack of clear direction as this game doesn't hold your hand at all, it doesn't even have a map! While the world isn't that large it did quickly become a pain trying to remember where everything was and how to get around, especially as I played this over a few weekends so it's not like everything stayed fresh in my mind, in the end I did resort to a guide for some guidance outside of dungeons just to keep the games pace up, I'm all for hands off games but at times I finished found Sphinx to be a little obtuse and almost intentionally vague which I don't have time for. Thankfully however the game has a massive saving grace being the dungeons as I found them all an absolute joy to play through with some real brain scratching puzzles hidden within them which I loved figuring out. This is where the two characters really shine as while both characters have a big focus on puzzle solving Sphinx is more action/combat based while the mummy has more of a focus on stealth, platforming and bigger puzzles as he has no combat abilities at all. On the Sphinx side of things it's your typical Zelda type tropes as you'll push statues, shoot targets, press switches and so on but the creativity really shrines through on the mummy side. Obviously a mummy is dead and the game has alot of fun with this concept as the mummy can conduct certain elements like fire and electricity, so alot of the challenges will see you having to work out how to catch fire and then where to take your burning wraps to, usually while avoiding any danger like water which would extinguish the flame. Admittedly this concept does end up alittle over done but I ended up really enjoying it, considering I'm usually more of a combat type of guy I really enjoyed the mummies side of the game alot more. One thing that did surprise me however is the game features very few actual bosses, I can't say I minded as like I said the combat is garbage but I found a game of this style not having dungeon bosses very peculiar. Basically I'm really happy I played this title, admittedly as a whole it's nowhere near Zelda's quality or even Okami's but I did seriously enjoy these dungeons, it's a hard one to recommend though as while it might be in HD it's still a GameCube/PS2 era action platformer which carries alot of problems, I can see past such issues as I often revist older games but some other might not be able to. The game did end heavily teasing a sequel but unfortunately it wasn't to be which has to be a shame as this series had potential. Animal Crossing New Horizons - I fell off Animal Crossing pretty hard and I think the turnips are to blame as they ruined the game for me. They're just so over powered that they make basically everything else pointless or meaningless, especially as I'm not as interested in the design aspect of the game where you need bells/money. Tbf I tried to stick with the game but once I ran out of recipes to craft or I didn't have the type of items I wanted to use in my designs I soon lost interest, the game still called to me but I had nothing to do but grind in hope of recipes I wanted. I did however jump back in for the museum day event which unfortunately was a pretty poor event, I did end up playing longer than I expected though and it felt great to be back on my island. I guess this game will have lasting appeal even if it's brief each time. Devil May Cry 3 - I didn't intend to finish this trilogy so quickly after playing the previous two games in the franchise last month but the call of one of my favourite games was too strong! I've made no secret of my love of Devil May Cry 3 and replaying it was pure nostalgia and gaming bliss. While the second game in the series was a massive disappointment the developers went back to what worked originally for the third title in the series while also adding a big focus on the story and characters. Vergil did appear in the first game but it's in the third instalment where he's truly developed as a character and where we learn more about Dante's family. The story basically focuses around the sons of Sparda (Dante + Vergil) where Vergil is the evil twin looking to inherit his father's power while Dante tries to stop him, however there is also another separate family plot surrounding Arkham and his daughter Mary aka Lady where you'll see the lengths Arkham will go to to become a God. The story focus is very much shown throughout the adventure as every mission more or less starts and ends with a cut scene and having the cocky free going Dante back from the first game is wonderful to see, the serious and moody Dante from the middle game of the series let the game down. However it is Vergil who completely steals the show as he's a complete badass from start to finish and just oozes power, for example there is this one really challenging boss who'll repeatedly batter you, then a few cut scenes later Vergil will cross paths with said boss and dispatch of him in seconds, the game just does a really good job of showing how powerful Vergil is and how he is a step above Dante. This is especially showcased in the boss battles featuring the brothers as he's an absolutely brutal encounter, especially the final meeting between the two as getting caught in his combo is devastating! Vergil is just extremely quick and potent with damage but when you finally beat him it's invigorating! Which brings me on to the difficulty as DMC3 is by far the hardest in the series thus far (on normal anyway). I seriously don't remember it giving me as much trouble as it did but every boss encounter was a grind as I releaned the patterns and strategies, granted the level to level gameplay was pretty reasonable but not far off every boss battle was intense and challenging. Ahh I just loved it! Seriously I could gush about this game for ages as I just love everything about it, DMC3 is just one of the best character action games ever made. Now to wait for DMC4 to come to Switch as I've not played the three titles that followed DMC3 (4, reboot and 5). Demos Songbird Symphony - This had me hyped when it released as graphically it really stands out and the concept of a rhythm platformer had me intrigued as I do enjoy rhythm games, so I decided to give the demo a whirl as the physical version is basically £10 everywhere currently. For once I'm glad I tried before I bought as while I adore the visuals I absolutely suck at rhythm games even though I enjoy them and the demo kicked my arse. Reviews say you can beat the game while sucking which is a nice feature but I don't think my ego or backlog would appreciate the battering. Like I said it's already a £10 game physically so I doubt I'll be adding it to my collection unless it drops further which doesn't seem likely, digitally it's been as low as £2.50 though I believe so maybe that'll tempt me in the future. Game Of The Year New Releases 1. Animal Crossing New Horizons 2. 3. 4. 5. First Time Played This Year 1. Dragon Quest XIs 2. Steamworld Quest Hand of Gilgamech 3. Poi! Explorers Edition 4. Sphinx And The Cursed Mummy 5. South Park The Fractured But Whole Recent Pick Ups Physical Victor Vran Overkill Edition - Switch - £14 - Yet another game thats been on my at the right price radar! Victor Vran is an action RPG in the Diablo mould which is a genre I've next to no experience in and as you know I love trying new genres and getting new experiences. The thing that caught my eye about Victor Vran when it released was the gothic/steampunk Van Hesling type design which I'm always a sucker for, the box art just looks cool! Thankfully the coolness seems to be more than just the art style as it reviewed well and this edition even comes with some Motorhead DLC so what could be more intriguing than that. So yeah I've added another physical indie to my ever growing collection. Digital Anthill - Switch - Free - I've raved about Image & Form games countless times (Steamworld series developers) and they recently held a Twitter giveaway for 2000 copies of Anthill which @Nucleus also won. Any way Anthill has recently been ported to the Switch as it's one of the company's early mobile games and it seems to be a strategy tower defence game, tbf they had me at giveaway and I'm intrigued to check out one of their earlier games but it is handheld mode only.

    Trequartista in AMC position

    I use a T in that role... but usually without strikers and they assist like mad. They’re also usually on free kicks and corners too, which should be getting near enough 25 a season.

    For the first time I'm trying it, although I play three striker's in a 433, but with AMC, I changed it to T, then my pass focus is Longpass has never tried it before, as a starting tactics, but so far the T, seems to be getting more goals, despite given away possession the team is currently unbeatable,

    We all have our preferred ways of playing Football Manager Mobile with some of us liking just a few games whilst sat on the toilet, some liking a realistic and more in depth experience and others like myself prefer the challenges side of the game with the aim of getting players to huge goal totals etc etc. However you choose to play the game is really up to you as one of the beauties of FMM is that you decide what you want to achieve and how you want to go about it. Many people want to enjoy the game in an immersive way and escape reality for a while by truly feeling like they are a manager of a real club in real life football. This guide is going to provide a few options you can use or ways you can play the game that will give you more of a realistic experience. Most of these options and ways of playing have been around for years in the old Championship Manager forums and still today within the FM community. These aren’t my own rules and who came up with these ways of playing is probably been lost in the mists of the internet and time all I am doing is repackaging them to be more suited to FMM. Note: This is not a specific challenge and you don’t have to use all these options or play completely this way. You can pick and choose what bits you want to add to a save you are doing that you think will give you more immersion and ultimately fun. Game Setup To start with you can use any ME you wish and it’s up to you if you want the player names to be real or fake. The database you use is up to you as well although of course the November one makes the squads closer to what they were at the start of the 2019/20 season. Obviously you won’t be ticking any of the boxes on the right hand side for the unlockables as none of those add any realism to the game. Attribute Masking: Most football managers will have a good knowledge of players in and around the leagues they manage in and of course the most famous players in the world that are on the TV every week but they can’t know everything about every player. Having this option ticked simulates that by having a few attributes blanked out on players and the only way you can see them is to scout the player or play there team in a match. When you choose this option you will see the attributes of some of the better and more well known players at all club's but especially youngsters or players abroad you will find that many of there attributes are blanked. Budgets in First Window: This sets whether teams will have a transfer budget in the first transfer window when the game starts. This option is up to you as having no budget would be more realistic as when the game starts the clubs have spent there money and built there squads but to me buying players is a huge part of the game and I wouldn’t enjoy not being able to do some wheeling and dealing straight away. Coaching Badge and Reputation: It is very unlikely that anyone would get a job managing a club at the levels available in FMM without having some kind of coaching qualification and reputation within football however small. That is why I have set it as a Bronze badge and Normal (Local) reputation. If you want you can set this lower but everyone who gets a managers job will have some kind of reputation within the game and wouldn’t be a complete unknown even if the general public haven’t heard of him so I think this is the most realistic setup. Leagues and Club Choice When it comes to setting up which nations you load that is entirely up to you. What I would say though is the idea of playing like this is to start at the bottom of the game and build your way up so you need to load the lowest leagues in at least one nation and preferably a nation like England or France that has a deep selection of divisions and small clubs. Hopefully you will one day manage Real Madrid if that’s what you want to do but you need to earn your stripes first in the lower leagues. When it comes to club choice you can go for the ultra realistic option of starting unemployed if you wish. If you want to start employed I think there is some consideration needed of the club you choose to ensure you make a realistic choice. Finances: I think you should be looking to pick a club with Okay finances. There are clubs in the lower leagues which are Rich (Billericay is one) but a rich club is very unlikely to pick a novice manager with little or no experience in management to spend all that money. Training Facilities: As with above you should be looking for a club with Average or worse facilities to start at. To earn your reputation you need to start on the muddy pitches of the local park and not on fancy 4G pitches with everything provided. Stadium: You should pick a club with a smaller stadium of say less than 15k capacity. In some lower leagues that is easy as no one has a ground close to that size but if you start in Germany for example some of there 3rd tier clubs have huge stadiums. I add this rule because a huge stadium suggests an element of the club being a fallen giant and clubs like that tend to want quick results and so go for a manager with some kind of proven track record which you haven’t yet got. A local club to you: This depends entirely on where you live but you could choose one of your local clubs to start at so long as they are in the bottom leagues. At the semi pro level most managers are relatively local to the clubs they manage so within an hour or twos drive simply because the pay isn’t that good and they can’t move house every time they move jobs. Playing the Game Now you have the save setup there are a few rules you can implement that can add to the realism. Signing Players: The player search option is completely out of bounds as real managers can’t just find a player by searching through and sorting a list of players by there specific attributes. The only time you can use player search is to find free transfers as I don’t think scouts bring you reports on players that are out of contract but you shouldn’t use the attributes filters to look at the freebies. You need to rely entirely on your scouts to go out and find you the players you will sign. So instead of player search you will use the scout reports tab where you will get a list of all the players that your scouts recommend for you to sign. You can then go through these results and find the players you need. One thing I would say is don’t trust the scouts star ratings too much and instead look at the players attributes yourself and judge if you think they are worth signing or not. Scouting Rules: Clubs in the lower leagues will not be able to afford to send scouts all over the world so neither should you. When setting a scouting assignment you should stick to the region your club is based e.g. in England you only scout UK and Ireland, Germany or France you would scout Central Europe and Spain or Italy you would scout Southern Europe. Once you move up the leagues you can relax this rule a bit so if you are in England and you are managing in League 1 you could scout Scandinavia or Central Europe and once you get to the Premier League you can start scouting the whole world if you wish. Signing Staff: When you first start out at the lowest level you should be only signing staff who are unemployed and of the same nationality as your club (or anywhere in the UK if you manage there). As you start to be promoted or move jobs up the leagues you can then begin to sign staff from clubs in the leagues below you as it would happen in real life. Once you are into the top divisions you can then sign staff from any club you wish in the world. Club Finances: You should ensure you work within the budget set for you at all times just as a real manager would have to. If you need or want more money you may request it from the board of course but then it’s up to them if they can provide it. Tactics: You should devise your own tactics instead of using one from the forum. A big part of a managers job is to find a way of playing that suits the team they have and they have to do that themselves as they don’t have a big list of tactics they can copy. That is what you should do as well although just as a real life manager can be inspired by other managers methods so can you it’s just you can’t copy instruction by instruction what someone else has done. Moving Clubs: Just as a real manager would do you may move clubs but you need to consider if a move would be realistic or not. That’s to say if you are a manager at a National League South team it is highly unlikely you would move to a club in the Portuguese 3rd division simply because the finances wouldn’t be enough to make the risk of moving country worthwhile and it’s unlikely a team in Portugal would have heard of you anyway. You might consider moving to another part of the UK though so a job in Scotland or Ireland wouldn’t be completely out of the question. As I said at the beginning these aren’t concrete rules that you must follow to the letter but instead are just some suggestions of ways you can make the game feel a bit more realistic and immersive if that is what you are looking for. I’m sure I have missed a few other ways so if you have your own suggestions please let me know in the comments below. Thanks for reading and all comments are appreciated.

    Hey everyone, I'm currently going through the progress of making a spreadsheet that gives your players a rating out of 20 at all roles in the game (purely based on the face attributes) Does anyone have any suggestions on things I should add such as weighted attributes (Some attributes are more important than others for a role) or should I just release the spreadsheet as is? Just in case anyone was wondering how it would work, you simply input your players attributes and it auto generates the ratings for the roles and creates a radar graph (like the one in full FM) comparing parts of their game. You can do this with up to 2 players (but I could implement more if people want that functionality)

    The Impossible Challenge

    Update 2/30 Since I felt I still had a lot to offer to the club I've decided to decline all offers coming my way just to finish this season and see if we could get more trophies Just like my first season in charge I've decided to go with a small squad...quality over quantity is my religion 🙏 With some new faces in I was gutted to see Toni Correia to leave for Wigan when they paid his 1m release clause in January but since football can't stop I bought Emmanuel Samba from Reading to replace him in a 375k deal but unfortunately forgot to do my transfers screenshots but the spare money helped on improving the youth and training conditions for the first time But let's see what it really matters...the ball rolling...again the same expectations...FA Cup a dream... But when we came against opposition like Everton only a miracle could save us But the dream was over...sad but proud of my players, now the time was to go for what we felt could be ours, starting with the FA Trophy And for the first time we were going to play in Wembley but more of that to come... Every club has the eyes set on the league and there's a name very common on my match screenshots...Ben "Bloody" House, one of my free deals for the season that was absolutely outstanding leading the line And when the season ended he and another four were the fantastic five And in the league all my squad was outstanding too Helping me along the way And at the end it is obvious how the table looked No doubt that we deserved it but we still had one Trophy to get and knowing that we would be playing against a team that was relegated I believed that easily the double was ours But somehow somewhat it didn't happen 😯 But my work wasn't going unnoticed Finally a good offer but should I?!? Time will tell but to finish this update I will leave you with my season And we ended like this So let's see what next season brings to us ! Thank you for following

    Been a long time posting since my other tactics and decided to come back and here is my latest save will try these tactics with another team in diff league. If im playing at home i usually play balanced the entire game. Unless desperatly need a goal. Its not the highest scoring formation. But if you look at goals conceded im really happy with that. I alternate between martinez lukaku and espostito as striker martinez and esposito are poachers. Lukaku was target man until his preference changed to complete forward. I look forward to seeing how these work for you.

    Season 23 Starting with the new youth graduates of course - Power looks a decent prospect for sure I went for the @Foxy and @Ashez gegenpressing formation this season, confident that my well-rounded squad could adapt. I was a bit worried if we had enough pace in the squad, as I don't look for it but it's a big part of this tactic - I was glad to find we were pretty well off in this regard though The boys had to adapt quickly though, as we were in the middle of the Club World Championship. The tight schedule of that tournament, too, makes the highly taxing formation a bit tricky, but our reserve right-winger bagged a hat-trick in the final as we defended our title: And we went unbeaten all season, stretching our overall run to 87 games (since Leeds beat us 5-1!). This was my first unbeaten league campaign of the career, and my best defensive performance, while the cup losses were all to penalty shootouts. This was a funny one - the podium of the Young Player of the Month full of my loaned-out lads: We finally bagged the big one: The formation was powerful, but we didn't get too many thrashings, just overpowered each team. See the run-in here for example: And here's an example game. Wtf are those attempted crosses about? But yeah just 6% of the game in my third, with 59% in midfield and 35% in their third. Anyway, here's the overview of my best performers. I had Ojebode pushed up and Milambo on the wing for ages, before realising that the other way round would be better. Toby took a while to adapt to being a number 10 but he was enjoying himself by the end. Toby is still the top dog. A slightly bizarre nomination for Yarney, who averaged under 7 and was fined twice for letting us down with regular 6/10 performances! I didn't think my CB recruit from last year would have enough pace - he wasn't first choice at the start of the season. But an injury opened to door and he was probably our best "Rising Star" by the end 9 past or present bees in the England squad, 7 from my current team and two old ones - Reed, who I released at the end of last year (I'd have kept him as a backup but he didn't want to sign a new contract), and Rushworth, a keeper I let go years ago: I thought there'd be a few more like that over the years, but it hasn't worked out that way. I had a little look at the assistant's report from the world cup - looks like England and in particular Toby are having some fun!! Thanks for reading - next up, The Black Pearl!

    Season 5 : Another Season, Another Striker This time - another raid from Bundesliga team, BVB. Got Donyell Malen for 38.5 mil. And this season is second best season i played after the first season. Overall, a fun season - Malen really picked it up and scored 49 goals and provided 17 assists in 50 apps for the club. That's almost a goal- every- match. Beast stats! This season I made a lot of transfers - since Man City took away my main no, 10 Joao Felix for 209 mil - so yea, invested a lot in youth players - especially when club veterans like Vitolo, Koke, Herrera etc. are not getting any younger. Another treble season ( plus the super cup) - had a lot of fun... SS attached. By the end of season - sold him to Chelsea for 115 mil - a lot of money in the bag... so yea good stuff...

    2-2-2-2-2 Goal-Fest TESTERS NEEDED

    I chose the DLF to hold the ball up and press , the DF to run in behind but also produce some support in midfield, the 2 IFs to produce some width and make it look like 4 strikers when attacking but I didn't push them up to the max highest point to ensure there is midfield stability, the 2 BBMS to create an overload in the boxes when crossing and also provide midfield workrate, they also roam wide to create support for the wingbacks, basically they are everywhere, WBS for needed width, more tackles and crossing, CBs stay put which is needed in this tactic to ensure they dont roam wide like BPDs or Libero, if they roam there would be spaces in behind so they are there to stay, SK because of the high line and short passing. Overload mentality to rush the attacks and make defensive interceptions effective, giving you more possession, narrow width to keep the defense compact even when it's overload, normal tempo and balanced creativity. Balanced width to avoid too many counters but also not too deep, All over to press high and create more turnovers, Offside trap to make defenders intercept with every ball played over the top when the strikers and midfielders press. Look for Overlap, to create better width Work into box this is dependable* Through balls to help feed the IFS and the DF The goalkeeper distribution is also dependable and can be changed. My test has gone quite well even when I have been very busy and playing in patches but as I said in the original post, top 4 is the target. I made 0 transfers and I used the original players and I would update with the complete season later on. Snodgrass was a sniper from corners as well!! The game against Man It's my players didn't know how to finish, I was so angry because I deserved more, DAMN YOU FELIPE ANDERSON FOR MISSING 3 DIFFERENT CLEAR CUT CHANCES!!

    Ian - La Masia Double Trouble - Season 2

    Season 2 Our duo got off to a decent start in their first season so the aim for this season was to keep going and hopefully an improved return from the two youngsters. I’ll start with the transfers. Transfers We let a few of the older players go and most notably Alba who I felt we no longer needed due to having a good few players both prime and young who could play in his position. Umtiti left for hardly any money at all as he’d kicked off during the first season about a lack of game time and I’d got sick of it so quickly offloaded him as I didn’t want him disrupting the harmony of our squad. Dembélé is also playing up and if I was allowing myself incoming transfers I’d be soon rid of him but I’m not and he’s rather good so I’ll keep him for now but eventually I reckon he’ll go. I let a few of the youngsters go which was an easy decision to make for most but not for a few of the more promising ones but I feel I can only keep so many. Marqués and Orel Busquets are the two that looked pretty good but the decision was made as I’d like to think we’ll be ok without them. I brought a few youngsters through from the academy with Cases looking the most promising and he can play anywhere in the final third so high hopes for him. The other two I’m not so confident in if I’m honest but they might surprise me I guess. Team Results No problem in the league and both domestic cups were won although we made rather hard work of the Super Cup as you can see from the fixtures below. We were actually rather lucky to make the Champions League final as we scored a last minute goal against Liverpool at Anfield in the semi final first leg which ultimately put us through on away goals. Didn’t matter much though as although we outplayed Man City in the final we just couldn’t convert enough of our chances so were left devastated. We were also rather humiliated against Juve in the Club World Championship quarter final as they knocked in five without reply and to be honest I expected as much as I’d got my rotation wrong and we ended up with too many tired players going into the game. Abel Ruiz No injury problems for either lad this year and Ruiz scored his first hat trick so hopefully more of those to come later. He improved a good bit and is looking rather good now. I’m really happy that his stamina looks like it’s going to end up quite high and those other greens speak for themselves. He actually didn’t perform much differently to the first season or even maybe a touch worse but 36 goals added to the tally and hopefully many more to come. Ansu Fati Fati also scored his first hat trick and added a second later on in the season so good going from him. Some nice improvements for him too with his movement looking nice and that little green arrow next to his stamina is pleasing as if that particular attribute doesn’t go up to at least 12 I honestly can’t see us doing this. A return of 32 goals for him which is a steady improvement on last year which can only be a good thing. The combined goal total of 68 is an improvement also and a step closer to the 90 goal return mark which is where we need to be. Challenge Score Season 01 Ansu Fati: 40 Games, 24 Goals and 22 Assist Abel Ruiz: 41 Games, 33 Goals and 9 Assists Combined Total: 57 Goals and 31 Assists Season 02 Ansu Fati: 44 Games, 32 Goals and 19 Assist Abel Ruiz: 51 Games, 36 Goals and 16 Assists Combined Total: 68 Goals and 35 Assists Grand Total: 125 Goals and 66 Assists Thanks for reading.

    Season 4: Time to move on... Transfer listed Bellotti - and eventually sold him to Marsielle to recoup half of what I spent and got Moussa Dembele instead. A slightly pacy striker and good enough to play ahead/alongside my team's playmaker - Joao Felix. Whooo ! he turned out great for me especially in second half of the season - especially when i got Real Madrid repeatedly in either league matches or knockout rounds of cup comps. Also, in this season both Felix and Dembele really performed at their peak, both of them scored 30+ goals for me and helped winning the treble. Both helped do a remontada against Madrid and Liverpool in UCL. He scored hat tricks in QFs and most importantly in the finals against Roma. So yea, damn good season. SS attached.

    Season 3: From my previous post - after Poulsen got transferred to Everton for a mere 30-35 mil (dint remember the exact figure) I got Andrea Belotti - one of my expensive signing for 73mil from Lyon. He turned out be a flop - as in he helped me pass the challenge of scoring 30+ goals a season - but overall, i had an underwhelming season; rather a trophy-less season. Well, Belotti eventually won the league's top scorer but his goals really didn't help me win anything - so a flop show. Overall, he scored 21 goals in league and scored 32 goals overall with 8 assists. Just kept me marginally on the right side to survive the challenge... SS attached for reference.

    Vibe World Cup 2020: The Final Results

    Vibe World Cup 2020 - Bronze Medal Match This years battle for Bronze see’s the Asian’s take on the English. Both teams will have come into the tournament hoping for at least a place in the final and this is there last chance to get some glory. The English pair of @Rob and @Woodyhave laboured at times in this competition as they finished bottom of the group stage and with the lowest combined points of the group stage as well. In contrast Asia have impressed at times with both @Kanegan and @broodje kip showing some flashes of brilliance and they came close to a spot in the final. The Asians go into this match as favourites but they face an experienced English team that will be looking to finish on a high. Bronze medal matches can often be open and entertaining matches but this was a “cagey” affair although there was definitely some entertainment. The Match The English went on the attack early on and it was @Rob who submitted first. This has been a gruelling tournament for Rob with a new baby in the house and we haven’t seen him at his best so far. In fact some pundits were suggesting he may not even make this match but he started nonetheless. Rob choose FC Copenhagen to manage which comes with the pressure of expectation at Denmark’s biggest club but the £10m budget is very healthy for that league. This was the pairs he put together and there were no nationality problems. Just 12 matches into the season it wasn’t looking good for Rob as he was sitting mid table. This was just a match too far though and with little hope of winning the league at this stage he was signalling to the bench that he would need to come off! And so Rob’s match and tournament came to an early end. England 0pts This leaves England down a man and gives Asia the perfect chance to counter attack with @Kanegan. A good score here and it would be very difficult for England to get back into this match. He decided to go to France and take on the task of rebuilding PSG’s squad with pairs of players and only £20m to do it with. This was a huge ask even for India’s number 1 and unfortunately he wasn’t up to the task this time around. After 9 league games the call came to clear his desk and Kanegan was finished. Asia 0pts So the teams go in at half time level at 0-0 and both have lost players in the process. Into the 2nd half and it was Asia straight on the attack with @broodje kip This was the squad put together by Sandwich at Sporting Lisbon. He put that squad to good use as well. First he won the Portuguese FA Cup which gives him 20pts and gets Asia off the mark in the final. He then backed that up with a dominant performance in the league and because he won the title he gets his league points and GD added to his total. This gives Asia 148pts and they are starting to dominate this final! There was more to come though as although he didn’t get any points for winning the Europa League because he went out in the group stage he did get some pairs of players to score 20 or more goals. That gave him 30 more points to his total and should have given Asia 178pts and mean that Woody and England would need something special to win this match. But.... The eagle eyed amongst you may have noticed something if you looked through those players under the spoiler. Unfortunately we have some ineligible players and not just 1 or 2 but actually 8!!!! The rules stated that you couldn’t use any players that came from a nation that you could manage in so in @broodje kip case that was Portugal, Russia, Turkey and crucially Spain. You also could only use players from nations that have already qualified for Euro 2020 and Scotland haven’t yet done that as they still have playoffs to win to get to the tournament. On closer inspection of the squad we can see both 4 Spanish players and 4 Scots as well. It’s tough on Sandwich and Kane but they were the rules and I did say that competitors could send there teams in before they play a match to have everything verified by me but @broodje kip didn’t do that. This means that 178pts turns into 0pts. So if @Woody can score anything be it players scoring 20+ goals or a cup win then England will take 3rd place in the event but if he also posted a 0 then it is going to a penalty shootout. Woody also went with Sporting Lisbon and this was his squad. Woody could end it all in one go with a league win but he came up against an in form Benfica who walked away with the title leaving him in third behind Porto. A cup win would be enough as well or even if he could win the Europa League but again Woody was thwarted and we are getting closer and closer to the lottery of penalties. This left player goal points as Woody’s and England’s only way to stop this match being a 0-0 draw and being decided on penalties. The Final will be on Sunday along with the awarding of the Golden Mobile Award.

    Ultimate team Journey of 22 Regens

    Season 4 finished. It was a successful season base on league finish and been promoted to championship, but fatigue, strength and stamina really makes we didn't finish the season as expected. Scored 109 and conceded 50, After trying so many tactics nothing could save us from losing successive games, as our scout reported that playing on unusual formation has affected our performance, we reverse to our usual style of play, right in time, in the EFL Trophy Cup final against MK Don, the young squad couldn't handle the pressure, though the over match stats show everyone is really up for it. 2-2 was the final score and a penalty shootout win to lift the trophy. This is the motivation my squad needed as we go on to win the remaining games in April, while I won the second manager of the month award in as many months. Player's now set their sight on moving to another Club, Ribèry, Ibrahimovic, Alves and four other's wanting a move, this resulted to my latest contract offer to Ibrahimovic worth 9m. currently only our Home grown left back Regen Baines, remains the only humble player who's ready to stay and help our course of Glory. International level. U21 Euro Fàbregas leads the charge as the youngest among the squad and less CA ability 3.0 to lead Spain to Glory an achievement, we at the Club Congratulated him and push him high the perking other. Ribèry France Also was the Top scorer in expense of more experienced P.Silva, Pedri. Regen Touré also Achieved AFCON Runners up medals. Board recognized how important and Royal I've been to the club, by allowing me a free Board request. Also Mourinho Retires, I have no fear of him eyeing my Job when it's gets to Superstar level

    1000 goals in Scotland & Now England

    Season 9 After a disappointing season last time out, and a few players not happy being at Celtic anymore. I felt it was time to actually move the challenge to a new club. Unuvar himself was getting bored up north, and pretty much decided for me actually that we needed to move; A few jobs came up, Arsenal, Wolves, Sevilla. None of which I felt could attract and importantly afford Unuvar to follow me. Untill.... The challenge moves to Liverpool! Before we moved, Unuvar had actually scored some for Celtic; 22 to be exact. Seemed to struggle the past few years, perhaps his heart just wasnt in it anymore. So onto the new stage of my career. Liverpool were actually sitting mid-table, knocked out of the CL and a very very young squad. No where near what we expect of the Premier League giants. We finished the season; Few iffy results as my players got used to my tactics, and considering the state of the club when i arrived, i was quite happy with a 6th place finish. Can only move forwards I say! The transfer window was open when i joined, and my first bit of business was obviously bringing Unuvar with me to England; So, how did he get on at his new home; Not a bad start. He had a month long injury near the end of the season, so happy with his returns. Now, remember he was only on 22 goals for Celtic when i left so need to remove 2 from the totals. 23 + 22 = 45. Luckily we had the Euros so he was able to add another 8 goals internationally to help the poor league scores. Competitons; Decent start to my reign at Liverpool. Awards; So i decided to check out at the end of the season how Celtic did; Obviously won the league, but more surprisingly managed to re-claim the Champions League! Quite proud of that to be honest, nice to know my years of hard work didnt go to waste as soon as i left. Now, the smart lot amongst you hopefully would of clocked onto something here. Celtic won the Champions League...I won the Europa League...that means.... Yes I have to play my old team very soon after leaving in the Super Cup.

    FMM 20 Chairman Game (MW30)

    Matchweek 30 Results Vibe Challenger Division Liverpool vs Dortmund Real Madrid vs Tottenham Arsenal vs Sevilla Chelsea vs Man Utd Barcelona vs Benfica Porto vs Chelsea Inter vs Arsenal Barcelona vs Liverpool And finally the most important match of the week, which could also be the most important one in the entire season. Before getting into the results, let's have a look at your prediction first. Only 2 out of the 7 chairmen who drop their predictions this week predicted a win for league leaders Liverpool, @gunnersaur was the only one who predicted a draw, while the rest predicted a win for Barcelona. As for the first scorer's prediction, Kylian Mbappe and Roberto Firmino are the favorites with 2 and 3 predictors respectively, while Salah and Firmino each get 1 predictor.

    Ian - La Masia Double Trouble - Season 2

    Thank you, he was magnificent this season. Hopefully he’s left a few goals for my duo to get. Thanks, he’s great, I’ve got Coutinho coming back from his loan who may well take over from Messi for a few years and hopefully he won’t pinch quite as many goals as Messi did in the first season. Thank you Bati, they are fine players but if I could get the 1200 I’d be more than satisfied. Thank you Rob, hopefully I can do a decent job here. Thank you Mr Tits, I don’t use wing backs but most of the wing backs they have can be trained to the winger position so plenty of good options available. Thanks Kun, unfortunately I don’t appear to have Balde, he mustn’t be on the November database that I’m using but that Cucurella who is out on loan for the first season looks like a good prospect on the left side at only 20 years old. Yeah Barca seems like the best team for this as my system of choice requires a very talented team and I’ve got a decent chance of maintaining that for a good few years hopefully.

    I now realise what you meant when you said you were trying something insane for your next attempt. Nicely done, great season.

    Final attempt - Liverpool Front Three

    All good totals for the challenges but I definitely agree with @Rob that one at a time might have improved the Front 3 challenge total. I’m sure that 400+ score isn’t too far away though.

    Next up: Alvin and the Chipmunks! Not sure if I've actually seen this one but the challenge itself is pretty straightforward. Pick three players whose names start with A(lvin), S(imon) and T(heodore). Do a triple threat challenge (by playing them in the striker positions) and the score will be their total assists and goals. Bonus points for team of the week (+1), team of the year (+10), and world player of the year (+25). With all those bonuses in play it only seemed fit to manage a world class team with world class players. Well maybe I missed the part of all the bonuses but we went with Kaiserslautern. In the 3. Liga in Germany.. Ah well, not changing it now since we finished it but you probably can get a lot of bonus points I guess. Or regular points with like, I don't know, skilled players. However, off we go to present our amazing Chipmunks! First up, our "Alvin". Bought from the Dutch powerhouse located in Eindhoven. Or at least when I manage them, FC Eindhoven! Seems decent and a lot of yellow so with a bit of training quite flexible. Next, our "Simon". Bought from Belgian side Oosterzonen Oosterwijk for 30k. I was just searching for a willing striker with high finishing and he came up. Pretty solid performer though. And last, our "Theodore". I loaded up a bunch of leagues and searched for the actual name but there aren't any I could find. Close enough I think! I was going to play two strikers with Theodor as my AMC but the rules of a TT state you play your guys up front so I ended up retraining him as an AML to play in the forward IF spot on the left. Fun fact; I only could find three Alvin's, and two of them are Dutch. You can actually come pretty close doing this at a higher lever, depending on some leniency from @Thepremiermanager. For example, playing Calvin Stengs, Simone Zaza and Theodor Gebre Selassie (who looks pretty decent as a winger) up front. Calvin wouldn't qualify but all the Alvin's are lower league material. Not going into much detail here, the league was pretty fun to play in. A lot of known clubs were actually in the same league. For example, Uerdingen and Unterhaching (probably my age) but also 1860 München, Hansa Rostock, Braunschweig (played Bundesliga in 2014?) and Duisburg. In the end we won the league pretty convincingly. Cup we went out of in the early stages (read: first round) so that wasn't good for our TT. We got a decent amount of mentions in the Team of the week. And even one (well two) mentions in the team of the year. Why Aboukhlal is in I don't know, he only played 14 games. In total that gives us 31 bonus points. Not too shabby considering the quality of my Chipmunks. Theodor actually got in the most, probably due to him being a retrained midfielder? On to the individual stats, first up Alvin. 7 goals and 18 assists. Higher rating than Aboukhlal (his backup) and more games so what the hell! Didn't score that many but assists are good I guess. Second Chipmunk, Simon. 23 goals and still 6 assists being my man in the middle. Decent rating also, but expected a little bit more goals from him. Last Chipmunk, Theodor. 12 goals and 3 assists. Strange to see him have more goals and way less assists than Alvin. Our players scored us a solid 69 points. Combined with the bonus it gives us 100 points. Probably easy to beat if you pick a better team which plays European games but I had fun doing it with these names in the 3. Liga! Thanks for reading and I just noticed we can go back to the MLS. Want to go for a Western team this time but suggestions are welcome! Already checked, no Drago's to pick namewise 😁
