    ‘Being FMMed’ Challenge

    (credit and thanks to @FuddledFox for the logo) ‘Being FMMed’ is a phrase you hear a lot across Vibe. The Oxford English Dictionary officially states it is: ‘The act of dominating the opposing team, typically reflected by lots of shots, whilst transpiring to lose the game without scoring a goal.’ It’s one of the most frustrating issues with the game and one I imagine results in plentiful of smashed tablets and angry outbursts. So let’s make it an issue we can all ‘compete’ on. This challenge is a simple one: You must lose the game; You must score score no goals; It must be a league game; Your ‘score’ is your shots minus the opposition’s shots. For example if you take 20 shots and they take 10 then you will score 10; The leaderboard will be ordered by ‘score’, then ‘shots’. In the previous example your score is 10 and shots is 20. If someone else scores 10 but has 22 shots they will be ahead of you; The usual own formations, no cheating, etc, rules apply Just to keep things looking simple I will only record your highest score on the leaderboard. Thank you and good luck! Leaderboard @Ian - 11 (21) @Mr Tree - 8 (10) @George Traistă - 4 (12)

    2021 Vibe Premier League

    Week 3 Challenge - Blunt Blades Week 3 is about to commence and with the table beginning to take shape let’s take a look at the fixtures that will entertain us over the next few days. Last week was a very difficult challenge and as much as you all loved it I’m sure you’ll be delighted to hear I’ve been a lot kinder this week and genuinely think this shorter one is a challenge that you will all enjoy playing. After impressing in their first season back in the top flight since 2007 finishing 9th in the table it has been a different story for Sheffield United this season, not only dropping off but imploding to last place with only 1 win in 19 games, and even that was against Newcastle. They are already certainties for relegation and have their sights set on next season in the Championship but that isn’t the case on FMM as you will get to start the 2020/21 season from scratch as I’m sure Chris Wilder goes to bed dreaming about every night. In the Sheffield United squad you will find this man. Billy Louis Sharp is a club legend at the South Yorkshire club, scoring over 100 league goals for them in 250 appearances over 3 spells at the club. Sadly for Billy though his game time is fairly limited these days after the big money signing of Rhian Brewster from Liverpool in the summer, and it’s understandable that he can’t get a game given Brewster’s prolific record of 0 goals in 15 league appearances, 2 less than what Sharp has managed in less than half of the game time. The Challenge This is a half season challenge and will end when you have played every other team in the Premier League once. In its simplest possible terms you will be trying to get Billy Sharp to score a goal against as many of these opponents as possible. All of the 19 teams you will come up against have been allocated a number of points and if Sharp scores against a team (in a league match) you will score that amount of points. These points are based on the average league position of all the teams in the Premier League over this season and last season. 5 PTS - Man City, Man Utd, Liverpool 4 PTS - Leicester, Tottenham, Chelsea 3 PTS - Everton, Arsenal, Southampton, Wolves, West Ham 2 PTS - Aston Villa, Burnley, Leeds, Crystal Palace, Newcastle 1 PT - Brighton, Fulham, West Brom It isn’t points per goal so as soon as Sharp scores against a team you will earn the points that team has to offer. Also, if you get a clean sheet in that match as well you will double your points from that game so this challenge tests both your pedigree going forward and keeping it tight at the back. For example if you beat Leicester 2-0 with Sharp getting on the scoresheet that’ll be 8 points from that game. If he scores and you win 4-1 that’ll earn you 4 points. You will not be allowed to make any transfers in for this challenge but you may sell who you want. Cup matches do not count towards these points but there are bonus points available for cup matches which I will go into now. Points As stated above plus to keep interest in the cup matches you will earn a point for every game you win in the cup and a point for every goal Sharp scores in them. If you get sacked this week then to be honest you are shit at the game and will receive a well deserved 0. Clarifications You will be managing Sheffield United and using Billy Sharp as the striker for the challenge. No transfers in are allowed at all. This includes loans. Sharp only needs to score once against the team to earn the amount of points allocated to them. It is not points per goal and there are no bonus points for braces or hat-tricks. If you get a clean sheet in a game Sharp scores in points from that game will be doubled. You will get a point per cup match won and per Sharp goal in the cups. The challenge lasts until you have played every team in the Premier League once. Original database only and you can load whichever leagues you want. Coaching badges and any reputation is allowed. No cheating, reloading, holidaying or use of unlockables whatsoever. You may only attempt this challenge once and as soon as you have started the save you can’t restart. If asked you must provide the save file and failure to do so could result in expulsion from the tournament. Tiebreaker will be most wins in all competitions again like last week. Screenshots Required Please send the following screenshots to me in the thread you have used so far this tournament. I might ask for extras if needed. Sharp profile on the day of the first game and at the end of the 19 league games Sharp history at end of 19 league games Manager profile and history League table Games Sharp scores in Cup games Transfer history Squad list in order of appearances. Deadline - Friday 29th January 11:59PM GMT

    2021 Vibe Premier League

    Vibe Premier League 2021, Week 2 Results The challenge that has caused carnage over the last week is finally over and the time has arrived to reveal how you “all” got on. Here’s the fixtures from the past week. The first thing to note is that unfortunately I didn’t receive any results from @ScottishFMM this week meaning he scores a 0 and @Jsavfc is awarded the victory. However I would still like to touch on Villa’s performance as it was an excellent one and something that deserves some attention. He went for what seemed to be the safe option of midfielders and guided his Dunfermline side to 3rd in the table with some very entertaining games in the process. He banged in 98 goals in the league and conceded 93 and in fact Villa went all out for goals here scoring 144 in all competitions which made up the vast majority of his score. Not many clean sheets but with only a point on offer for each one using midfielders that doesn’t really make any difference and his total of 201 was the second highest of the week. There were two casualties this week in terms of the sack race with @Ian and @Aaron Thornton losing their jobs. Ian was extremely harshly done by as the FMM Gods unceremoniously decided his time was up with only one game to go! He went for Dunfermline and utterly despised the challenge from start to finish with a few what can only be described as brutally heavy defeats in there and the same can be said for Aaron whom I was only shown 1 screenshot from and sorry Aaron but I think it really does tell the tale all on its own 😂 The best two matches of the week in terms of excitement were Kane v Broodje and the clash between the then top 2 Smog and Rich. But the next result to have a look at was from @George Traistă who as things worked out just had to avoid the sack to grab the win this week. He went for midfielders and actually achieved the joint best league finish of everyone this week guiding Cowdenbeath to 2nd place. He didn’t quite explode with goalscoring like most people did but did get 84 of them in all competitions and a respectable 7 clean sheets as well. A second consecutive solid performance from George with a score of 147 and he beats the defending champion. Something else that has to be applauded was him really getting into the spirit of the golf challenge by signing a player who shares the name as @FuddledFox ‘s favourite golfer Sergio Garcia. Now unbelievably @Woody was the 3rd to submit his results meaning he still hasn’t achieved the banker bet of this event which is to be last to submit two weeks in a row. He made the decision of going for defenders meaning every goal effectively counted double and this payed off big style. He scored 82 goals in all competitions but as I’ve just touched on these points were doubled. Like George as well he guided his side to 2nd in the league and there was only a single clean sheet but Woody made a good tactical decision this week (not something I thought I’d ever write) and was unmatched this week so well done to Woody who achieves the bonus point in week 2! So we now know that George, Villa and Woody have beaten Ian, Scottish and Aaron respectively but the final 4 results belonged to four managers who were involved in great matches this week. I’ll leave the clash between the top two until last so Kane against Broodje is next up. There were only 3 points between these two but as the results went I can reveal this did NOT end up in a draw. Highest score wins in this one. Their two approaches couldn’t have been any different with @Kanegan going for defenders at Dunfermline and @broodje kip opting for attackers at Raith. Both really struggled in the league and were probably fortunate not to be sacked but just about survived, both with 30 points each. Kane performed narrowly better defensively and in the cups and going into the moment of truth which is goals scored Kane held the advantage at 53-42. But Kane couldn’t match Woody’s heroics of scoring goals with defenders as that came back to haunt him only managing 36 goals, albeit they were doubled to 72. This meant that Broodje would snatch a win here with 80 goals or more, and... He managed 83 to take a narrow win in a thriller and defeat an unlucky Kane who might have done enough to earn a draw in another week but is condemned to a defeat. Finally what looked to be the match of the week on paper between @smoggy90and @RichD and it didn’t disappoint. Smog went for midfielders and Cowdenbeath with Rich going all out attack and Dunfermline. Quite frankly neither of these two gave too much of a shit about their defences, conceding a colossal 233 combined goals in the league only, but also couldn’t stop scoring goals either. Mid table league finishes for both of them with very similar points totals from the cups and only one clean sheet between them meaning this came down to what we all want to see in who scored more goals. I can reveal that Rich scored 117 goals in all competitions to give him a final score of 160. Smog managed to beat this and outscored Rich by 15 points but as we’ve seen already Woody and Villa breached the 200 mark. There was no score splitting these two, draw it is. Good match. Final Scores Woody - 215 Jsavfc - 201 smoggy90 - 175 RichD - 160 George Traista - 147 broodje kip - 128 Kanegan - 125 Ian - 0 Aaron Thornton - 0 ScottishFMM - 0/DNF Results, Week 2 @Kanegan 1-2 @broodje kip @Jsavfc 4-0 @ScottishFMM @George Traistă 2-1 @Ian @Woody 4-0 @Aaron Thornton @smoggy90 3-3 @RichD Well done to all the winners this week especially @Woody for scoring the highest and achieving the bonus point. @ScottishFMM will be deducted a point after not submitting, his week 3 match will go ahead as planned but failure to submit 2 weeks in a row would mean he would be eliminated from the competition. Here’s how the table looks. Woody goes top and it’s already looking like it’ll be a tight race for the playoffs with just as single point separating the top 6.

    Season 2, the right thing to do When I promise something, I keep my word... look at this beauty! I think I went over board in the league just to compensate for the bad result from last season. All other competitions lost in the final, perfect! Transfers, again, just few adjustments, not much. The duo Harry Kane Heung-Min Son Kane missed 2 weeks because of an injury and in both seasons I was a little sloppy with the minutes so I had to rest them few times. This season I was sloppy with the tactic also as I forgot to revert the tactic after a lose-on-purpose game and went on like that for around 10 games 🤣 Final Score S1 131 S2 135 TOTAL 266 L. E. One thing to add, I forgot the settings from VPL week 2 and on this one I was a Motivational coach 😂😂😂

    Not the usual TT - Peak Years

    So I was given a challenge by the man about town @Rob for a triple threat career but not the usual and it goes like this: 3 strikers aged 24 or above; Any club; The first five seasons will contribute towards the Peak Years Challenge (which also includes assists) So of course I was going to say yes and it got me quite excited to be honest. This will coincide with my China career and I will play one season of each in a lovey routine. The Club So I wanted to do a challenge in England as it’s generally harder here than other countries in my experience. There was also a player here that’s 24 and will be used..... Timo Werner Maxi Gomez Mousse Dembele So the players are there, Dembele wasn’t my first choice for this, I was hoping to bring Gnabry or Marital in, but they wanted an insane amount of money for them. I’m hoping the three will be good enough. The Target So ideally this will have been completed in 9 years, which is a 167 goals each year, which is a hell of a lot, but I will try my bloody best to get there! This may be a bit much and I’m unsure if I will reach the target, but I will have fun trying 😁 Thank you for reading chaps, this is going to be a tough one!

    Season 2 Transfers Out Transfers In Manafa wanted out so i brought in another favorite of mine in Krepin Diatta. A very versatile player who can play in any wing position on either side. Anderson finished his loan and went back to West Ham so we needed a permanent solution and in comes Enis Bardhi who was brilliant in the AP position while Ntcham was signed looking into the future. Saint Maximin was signed as a backup in the WM to Gray and Bebou Vallejo and Elvedi slotted in as BPD as Pepe was 38 yrs old now and we don't have any other decent defenders. Season History CL was a disaster and we lost in the League Cup final to SLB but won everything else. League Performance We finished the league undefeated with Cherki leading in both goals and assists. Cup Runs The CL campaign was disappointing. Notable Matches Cherki stepped up this season with 2 hattricks and a fiver but he was pretty inconsistent while Ekefele struggled with just one hattrick. He also got injured for a month. Awards Cherki wins the French POTY beating Mbappe and Kimpembe while snapping all the Golden Boots and again we register 5 in TOTY. Top 10 Performers Efekele He continues his development with green arriving in passing, dribbling and movement. Shooting is upto 11 now. Cherki Cherki becomes a fan favorite now. Challenge Total So, 50/600 Assists 116/1200 Goals The tactic is working well so far. A little bit of consistency from the two and we could be hitting big numbers. Thanks for viewing.

    Season 4 We're doing great as a team, but need the lads to increase their numbers, or this is going to be a long long save... Transfers Highlights: Dembele had been great off the bench, but with KJ, Suarez, Serrano and a regen on the bench with him, it was getting a bit crowded. So when an offer came in for him, we took it. We also shipped out Vogt, who had been one of the starting CDs in season 1 and 2, but became a backup once we signed Tomori (a season or two back). The biggest departure: Carrillo for free. His work was done! He was still a decent backup, but deteriorating and it was time to say goodbye (until my next career). Coming in: some youngsters with a good base, a gap between potential and current ability in the scout report, who are transfer listed and at a top club. Doesn't matter if they aren't top regens, if they get a reasonable amount of development on top of the base, they will surpass the current group of players. The ITN Job As I've said before, I don't really want the ITN job, but it became free after the Euros. Pellegri had carried Italy to the Final, but they lost there to Germany. I would have thought that would have been enough for the Italian FA, but apparently not! So I applied for the job - only to be turned down in favour of Ivan Piazza. When I checked my ranking, it showed as Unranked. A month or two later we won the league again and I was back to 3rd best in the world. Nice one FMM... Still, it was probably doing me a favour. Results We won everything again this year and scored 160 goals in the league (+1 on last year, we're remarkably consistent): Here are all the screenshots: Injuries Badji got off injury free last year, but paid for it this year with two separate 3 week injuries, while Pellegri was out for a week: The Lads Almost no development now: Goals Galore We are now up to 1084 goals in 4 seasons at an average of 5.26 goals per game: If I submitted that to the The Managers 1000 Goal Challenge I'd be clear top, but I'm not submitting anything for this save, beyond the record store ones. It's just too easy here in China. Score Here's the overview: And the history screens: Which gives us: Season Esposito Pellegri Badji 01 38 19 24 02 60 63 50 03 41 71 51 04 60 65 49 Total 199 218 174 Pellegri looking great with his ratio at about 1.5 and holding steady, Esposito back on track after a poor season last year, and Badji having a better year than last, despite losing 6 weeks to injury. That said, the numbers are borderline, especially for Badji. He needs to ramp it up or he's going to need another 17 seasons to finish this! Thanks for reading.

    WOW... that was an exiting season. Let's get to it Transfer In Transfers Out As I've learned so far - it's much harder to sell or resell players in fmm21 rather than fmm20. But there is a trick - p/e deals. Especially when you play a short challenge like this you can offer 50% sell on cause, a player for exchange and some cash. Therefore I brought Pasalic, Merino and Dier to strengthen the mid field. Corona, Adama Traore and Gelson Martins for flanks. Even thought I had other options but Gelson is one of my favorite wingers in this game for few years. So how did we do Trophy wise Despite scoring on 1st minute in semifinal of Carabao Cup we lost 2-4 to Chelsea. But we got them back in EURO Cup final. And a pleasant win over a tough nut ManC. Who (man c) gave me a headache in Premier league. Even though we won one of two games during the year in a league, there was a chance to stay 2nd at the end. Man C lost 2 points in 37th game of the season and we took what was rightfully ours. Manager's stats A 199 goals - absolutely insane result. 3 gpg rate. With an incredible 100 goals from a goal scoring machine... BEHOLD !!!! HARRY KANE 1.51 gpg from this beast And his wingman - SON An brilliant 33 goals alongside 49 assists. As you can realize - most the Kane's goals and Son's assists came from corners. Team stats As you can see Kane himself and 3 other players provided over 10. My favorite - Gelson, Hojbjerg and Ndombele. I decided to keep the majority of players this year rather than rebuild the squad and it payed off. A total score of 194 this year and another year to go... Sounds promising. We'll see what tomorrow brings. @Rob if you may please add Kane's 1.51 gpg to the 100 club 😃

    2021 Vibe Premier League

    Week 2 saw a tough challenge and a few sackings but it has certainly made the table start to take shape as we only had one draw in the 5 matches. There are now only three more challenges before two players are eliminated from the competition so it’s all to play for this week. Here is a reminder of the fixtures. @Aaron Thornton v @Ian Neither of these competitors have made the best start to the competition with Aaron losing both games and Ian having a draw and a win so far. They will both be looking nervously at the the prospect of being eliminated at the end of week 5 and so they will be desperate to get the win this week. We make Ian the favourite to kick start his defence of his title and add more misery onto Aaron. Aaron Thornton - 2/1 Ian - 2/5 @smoggy90 v @Jsavfc These two are both right in the playoff mix after two challenges and a win here would start to cement one of there places in the top 4. They have both had a win and a draw so far and it’s quite possible that we will see another draw but we do make Smoggy favourite for this match. Smoggy90 - 8/15 JSavfc - 6/4 @RichD v @Woody This is another battle between two competitors that are currently in the playoff places. Woody had the top score last season and sees himself top of the league and much like King Kev all those years ago he would “love it” if he beat his fellow Mag fan. The bookies can’t separate these two and firmly think it will be a draw but I don’t necessarily agree and I think there will be a winner one way or the other with Woody my pick to be victorious. RichD - 10/11 Woody - 10/11 @ScottishFMM v @broodje kip ScottishFMM was a no show in week 2 and a repeat this week will see him become the first person eliminated from the competition. Broodje is one of six people so far who have drawn one and won one so far and as such is looking like he will mount a challenge for a spot in the playoffs. The bookies hope this won’t be a walk over because of another no show but either way they make Broodje Kip solid favourite for this match. ScottishFMM - 6/1 Broodje Kip - 1/12 @George Traistă v @Kanegan Kanegan is currently sitting 7th on 1 point and he will want to get himself his first win this week to get himself away from the elimination zone and into the playoff picture. George is another with one win and one draw and he will be confident that he can add a second win to his record this week and the bookies agree. George Traista - 8/13 Kanegan - 13/10 As usual we really want to prise some extra money out of your wallets and as such we can offer you some spicy specials to really whet your appetite. Woody to win the league stage - 9/2 Aaron to qualify for the playoffs - 25/1 A 0 to be scored this week - Evens as the bookies taking no chances in case it’s another no show from ScottishFMM Woody to submit last - 10/11 The challenge is being posted by @samhardy tomorrow and I wish you all good luck.

    Wow, never thought i would get so many responses. Thanks to all for viewing and joining in the fun. Now is the time to give a proper intro. Intro As predicted by @Ian, he completed this last year and from then on, it has been ingrained in my mind and i was looking at attempting the same myself. So, the plan is to complete the The DT Challenge using Inside Forwards. Of course, chosen club is Porto in Portugal as i had completed a normal DT with Sporting Lisbon in 2019 and another long career with Benfica in 2020 so it had to be the last of the big three. Monarch 1 A name which came up on almost everyone's lips and a man who i liked pretty much. I topped the Race to 100 leaderboard in both goals and assists with this man in 2020. So, here is him: Rayan Cherki. He develops pretty fast from what i have seen in previous edition so he should lead the charge in couple years of time. Monarch 2 A lad which i have not come across before and it was only predicted by @Ian so kudos to him. He has attributes in all the right places so should be a handy companion to Cherki. So, i would play them both all times in the FL and FR positions: So, that's it for the introduction. Will be back with the first season update soon.

    2K in Glasgow - Season 2

    Season 1 It’s a very surprising season for me. I was targeting 65 goals and probably with just 1 trophy which is the league but it went the other way. Transfers I sold most of their star players and replaced them with young talents. We bought some of the highest potential youngsters like Unuvar, Moriba, Meslier and Mendes. I bought Cantwell and De Ketelaere just because I like them. Charlie McNeill because he’s a former Man City’s academy player. The others are just some Scottish players that look interesting. Tactic I tried to make a more Gung-Ho style of my 90 goals Werner tactic so I went with 2 atb. I also used defensive mentality after reading @Scratch ‘s logic behind the usage of this and after a few guys saying it’s the best way to get goals from striker in the General Discussion. Here’s it. Moriba and De Ketelaere were our first choice since the start. I used Brown for the first half of the season until he starts to decline and switched to Unuvar. I had Diego Laxalt and Mohamed Elyounoussi but they’re not in the screenshot because both of them went back to their parent clubs. League Table Comfortably won the league. Nothing much to say. Manager Profile and History Surprisingly we won both cups and even went to the Champions League Quater-Final. Not only that we also got an unexpected 3-2 win against FC Barcelona on aggregate. We’re just unlucky to lose against Sevilla. Cantwell, Unuvar and Ajer were injured with Musiala being tired. Awards It’s not quite important but still someone might be interested to see. Musiala’s Stats Got his pace, strength, movement and shooting upgrade to 15+. Waiting for aerial but perhaps we should mentor him. He absolutely killing it! It’s an impressive 79 goals in 58 games! Expect 100 next season? I told all of you that I got 150 but I didn’t say Musial scored 150 didn’t I? Team Stats Our backup striker, Leigh Griffiths being out 3rd top scorer. Elyounoussi should’ve been 2nd with 18 goals but he returned to Southampton. Todd Cantwell got the most assists with 34 assists, Diego Laxalt got 22 assists but went back to AC Milan while Mikey Johnston got himself 21 assists.

    Scratch Tries The 3x1KC [Season 4]

    Season 2 With a decent first season behind us, we head into season 2 hoping for a stronger performance. And we got it! But first... How Many 1KCs? I originally said that while my target is 3x1KC (Esposito, Pellegri and Badji), I was hoping to get a 4th 1KC for Kaio Jorge. However, it's time to get real and drop that idea. Last season I rotated the 4 lads equally. Because they tired out more quickly, that didn't have a huge effect on playing time of the main lads, as they need the time off anyway. This season, the main lads were able to spend more time on the park, meaning I had a clear choice: maximise the chance of 3x1KC at the expense of the 4th one, or the other way around. The choice was easy. Moving forward, I'll play KJ when I can, but not at the expense of the main lads and I won't bother reporting on him here. Transfers We further shaped the squad: Highlights: We sold players nearing 30 such as Wilshere, Halstenberg, Strinic and Musa, even though they'd been important players for us, in order to give us space and budget to chase younger alternatives. We sold Jedvaj when a good offer came in even though he was a starter, because we had decent alternatives and the man was bringing the squad morale down (in dynamics). Bakambu left on a free as we didn't have enough money left in season 1 to renew his £375K contract and Guangzhou swooped in and agreed a Bosman for him. We bought a bunch of younger players to become first team members, such as Daniel James, Wijndal, Tomori, Laimer, Skov. We bought a few expensive-ish youngsters, who based on price and wage, are likely to be decent regens. Some probably won't fly, but if a couple come through they will rule this league. Results We won everything domestically and got 156 goals in the league, but couldn't quite get past Real Madrid in the Quarter Final of the Club World Championship (although we beat Atletico to get out of the group). We hopeless outmatch all other teams in China and the region, so we score a ridiculous amount of goals. Here are all the screenshots: Injuries After last year's load of injuries, we had a much better year, with only Badji out (3 weeks): KJ was out for a month, but I guess I don't need to include that anymore! Poor old Carrillo had four separate injuries, but each time came back and gave his all, getting a couple of those "setting a wonderful example" or "rolling back the years" upgrades. Seriously, this guy is a must-sign player. The Lads Looking pretty wonderful: In other news, it turns out that Pellegri is one of the few players in the game who takes discipline well: I had to give the other two new contracts after learning the hard way that they weren't. Goals Galore All up, we have 524 goals in two season at an average of just over 5 GPG: But how many of those did our lads get? Score Here's the history screens: And here's the overview: Which gives us: Season Esposito Pellegri Badji 01 38 19 24 02 60 63 50 Total 98 82 74 A great season all round and if we can improve slightly on that, we may just be able to pull this off... At this point, my only worry is Badji falling slightly behind, but we have plenty of time remaining to correct that by giving him penalties etc.

    Badge 2 - The Last Dance See here for challenge thread Finally, here is my attempt at badge number 2. Took me a while to get something working for this one, but I was fairly pleased with the results. It was the first time I'd managed to get a 1ATB formation to work this year. Transfers In Bought in some big names. Had to let Coutinho go for Neymar though which was pretty gutting as I'm sure he would have been an ace sub for Messi. I was a little unsure if we had enough quality in depth, but we managed well in the end. Transfers Out Results This was the best gpg I've achieved this year, but also the most goals conceded in a year. But that didn't matter for this challenge. Let's see how MSN got on... Score: The guys done pretty well with injuries this season, except Luis Suarez towards the end. He actually had a cracking first half of the season and was sat on 20 goals by January. Neymar did well enough for me, and performed better than he had done in previous saves, but there was no beating Messi. He was an absolute monster with 72 contributions for the season. Bringing us in to the score for this challenge: Suarez: 41 Neymar: 44 Messi: 72 Total: 157 points. I really enjoyed this challenge, and adding this badge to my collection. Onto the next! Thanks for reading. @Scratch If you could add my score to the leader boards please. Stay tuned for Redknapping, up next! P.S My write ups will probably stay quite short from now on due to not having much time lately. Damn responsibilities...

    Firmino, 6, Eric Dier. Had a couple ideas on the player but I can't get any to fit perfectly so just going with the first thought I had. I like the Garcia shout but I'm not stealing that as it hadn't come to mind until I saw it haha.

    Interesting using IF, are you not concerned they will steal too many goals from your main three?

    Thanks broodje Kip. I finished 15th, with a less strong team. I made this team after I finished 15th. At this moment I am 8th after 9 matches. But against the big teams I'm still losing very hard haha.

    Cheers @George Traistă! Leicester beat me 4-0 (three late goals when i went kamikaze) and went on to win the cup. As for the league... and... ...as we hit 5th place with 3 games to go. But it was very tight and i had away to 3rd then home to 1st. Drew both, then bottled an easier last game of the season to stumble home and tumble down We were the people's champions, of course: and... So you can see there, Tricky Ricky got 31. Up to 127 goals in total in 3.5 seasons since signing for £1k from Dover. Decent As for your question though, George - I've flicked on to the new season and there appears to be an ideal job available... So it looks like we won't play in the Prem in this career

    Thanks @Rob @broodje kip @George Traistă @Ian @FuddledFox @RichD @Scratch. They missed quite a few games due to their conditioning but when they played, they were in for the full match. My tactic is still pretty much a work in progress but this is what I sticked to most: Playing both the guys in the forward line and driving the play through both flanks.

    Scratch Tries The 3x1KC [Season 4]

    Thanks mate. It's down to 2 things (it seems): These players are good. I don't know their PA for this save, but I know roughly what it will be based on the their base/default value. And their starting CA isn't that high, so they will each get somewhere between 8 and 12 training updates - and if you get that many updates, you can make them look very good. This is why I won't submit these scores for the 1KC leaderboard - I know too much about the database whenit comes to picking players for long term saves like this (though I guess I could have just picked them off the wonderkid list). I use a special rotation training system: If you set Target Attribute to Aerial and leave it there, you will get an update every so often, but sometimes it won't move at all (I guess because increasing it every time would make it grow faster than it should). So, I set it to Aerial, get the update, change it Pace, get an update there, change it Movement, etc. By the time you get back to Aerial, it's ready to increase again. It doesn't always give you the update to the target attribute, but it seems (to me at least) that you get it more often than if you leave it on a single attribute. Although I could be imagining it I guess... I would have led with top staff (which I do have) and top facilities - but I can't get the final facility update from this board, so maybe that doesn't have as much effect as I though? Though I could have sworn it did.

    S17 - Elgin City - Hometown Hero!

    Business as usual in the league as we wrapped it up in March. We unfortunately lost one game near the end of the season as we rotated to compete in Europe. On a plus note though we only conceded 3 goals in the league all season and and a grand total of 8 in all competitions! In November Stanislas Palhinha came third in the World Footballer of the Year awards A month later Sow was named French POTY, a great year for our 2 young IF's Sealed the domestic treble again with a close victory over St Johnstone, our start striker bagging the winner. Another close match saw us grab the CL again winning it back to back for the first time. Finally we went on to win the Club World Championship for the first time in the career! Not quite so outstanding across the indivisual awards this year, missing out on top Goalscorer and Players POTY. The career is getting stale, it's pretty much at a stage of plug and play. Looking for ideas to help freshen it up?

    Yeah I really want to try a 1k, but I'm lazy and can't be bothered getting my tactic spot on by retrying the same season/half season over and over again. After the badges, I'm thinking of doing some 4-5 season challenges. I started a Maradona Napoli challenge, just after he died, so I might try that again. But there is a certain challenge that's being worked on by other parties that will hopefully be full steam ahead next week.

    Great season mate, even though I know you're dissapointed with a "measly" 87 goals 😂 I've found Pavon pretty lacklustre this year. Always grabbed him and Dilrosun in the past. Dilro has turned into an absolute monster on some of my recent saves! KIU lad

    Yeah very true actually, looking back at my TT, I think my Strikers had a lot of assists, my inside forwards had a lot as well though. I think I may go more attacking next season, which may not work, but i want to try 😂

    On the verge of promotion now, and Rick's had a great season. Individual honours for December: Smashing a Championship side in the FA Cup: Before losing very unluckily to an EPL team in the 5th Round: Meanwhile, example number 7 or 8 now of me slaughtering the Reserves sides in the PJT: Looks like Rick's 16yo brother or cousin plays for Chelsea We are 15pts clear of 3rd with 9 games to go, so it's looking good. But we're only 2nd because we can't get past this gorgeous beast: End of season update to come later today, i guess!
