  1. Hello Vibe and welcome to my latest career where I’ll be going for goals with the rather tasty youngster in Moise Kean at Juventus. I’ve completed a good few challenges this year and had planned on my triple threat being my final long save but things change and having completed a few seasons with Kean the decision was made that I might as well post the thing up. I’ve used a few unknowns in my recent goalscoring challenges but here I’ve taken a different approach as I’m sure most of you will of at least heard of Moise Kean as he’s probably one of the best young strikers on the game. Basically I wanted to use a great young striker and it was between Brewster at Liverpool or Kean at Juventus and obviously supporting the reds the temptation was strong to use them but having looked at the two players I much prefer Kean so I went that way. Here’s the 1000 Goal Challenge and credit to @danovic78 for creating it. I’ll be hoping to hit 1.5k goals but that depends on whether I can get the Italy job fairly early into the save as if not we’ll have to lower the target. Anyway for confirmation here are my choices. Player: Moise Kean He’s got brilliant starting attributes and at 18 is already fairly well developed. Good pace, strength, aerial, shooting and movement with decent passing and mental attributes including aggression which I personally love. I’m confident he’ll develop into a beastly forward and hopefully score plenty of goals. Club: Juventus I’ve managed in a few weaker leagues for goalscoring challenges recently and wanted to go for a slightly tougher league with using a better player so Italy seemed perfect and of course Moise Kean plays for Juve on this game so an easy decision to make. I have another target for this save and that is the 100 Goal Club Challenge created by our 2kc completist and Strikerless King @Rob so credit to him for that. I am actually already a member of the club but near the bottom which although is still a fantastic achievement I’d love to improve my standing and just hitting the 100 goals in this league will guarantee I do just that. I’ll also be looking at other things such as assists and International goals if I get the Italy job but my main focus is on the 1.5k goals and 100 goals club. Well that’s the introduction done and I’ll be back with an update of the how the first season went in a day or so. Thanks for reading.

    Career The Gambling Man

    The Gambling Man continues..... For now anyway!
  3. Hello Vibe, I’m back to update you on this career that just doesn’t want to end but the good news for myself anyway, is that it is officially over. Yes I’ve finished this career but you’ll have to wait a bit longer to find out if Kean made the end as I’m only covering two seasons on this update. Season Twenty-Seven This season was a fairly poor affair as the squad wasn’t in the best of shape with us having a lot of older players who are declining and younger players set to eventually replace them but not quite yet at the required level. We have two older players who have managed to make themselves squad outcasts in Volpe and Campo and ideally I’d like to sell but I couldn’t seem to offload them as their wages are too big for most clubs so we’ll just have to keep them for now. Losing out in the Champions League final last year meant we missed out on a few tinpot cup matches which was a shame as they usually offer a good chance of maybe getting a big win. Big wins were few and far between this year as we only managed to score 95 league goals which considering we hit 123 last season we have to be slightly disappointed with. We did win all of the competitions we entered though so not so bad in the grand scheme of thing. Moise found the net 17 times this season so he didn’t do too badly considering his age. His attributes might look poor but I’m still surprised they are this good as I thought he’d be nearly all red across the board but somehow his aerial, shooting and movement are managing to stay at a fairly decent level. At international level we managed to beat France in the European Championship final although Moise couldn’t find a goal and only scored 3 goals for Italy all season! Season Twenty-Eight We managed to offload both of our squad outcasts in Volpe and Campo which was a relief as that really helped us financially plus their younger replacements are maturing all the time so the squad is in a fairly decent state now to hopefully see this home. Mouse started the season well with a hat trick in the Confederations Cup semi final against U.S.A. Not long into the season and he hit another hat trick, this time for Juve in the Champions League group stages against Lokomotiv Moscow. Okay two were from the spot but as mentioned previously, they all count! So six goals just there which would surely bode well for the rest of the season. For Italy he ended up scoring nine goals which is great going at this stage. The team won the Confederations Cup final against France in a one sided 3-0, Moise didn’t feature due to playing the full 90 minutes in the semi so it was left to our backup striker to do the job and that he did in scoring all three of the goals. Kean also scored another hat trick and a brace during the early stages of the World Cup at the end of the season and he’s proving he’s still got goals in him with the right players around him. At Juve we had a much better season this year with a clean sweep of trophies and an unbeaten league campaign. We scored 118 goals in the league which was nice to see after last seasons disappointing 95. Most of the finals were comfortable but no goals for Moise as he was left out of the vast majority of them due to my rotation and his declining fitness. So all we have left now is to reveal how Moise performed this season, well he performed rather well in scoring 20 goals for club and nine goals for Italy. I’m fairly confident now that he’s not going to just collapse and be unable to score at all so it’s just a matter of hoping he doesn’t get sick and retire all of a sudden. Manager We’ve completed 28 seasons now and only two more to go (hopefully) so the plan is to post another update on Sunday which will take us to the end and then another post in the middle of next week as a summary and to show the tactic I’ve used for the vast majority of this career. Score Moise Kean Season 27: Club: 17 goals in 37 games - Int: 3 goals - Total: 20 Season 28: Club: 20 goals in 32 games - Int: 9 goals - Total: 29 Club Total: 1803 goals International Total: 440 goals Grand Total: 2243 goals Thanks for reading and comments are greatly appreciated.
  4. Thanks, sorry about that but he just doesn’t want to pack it in. Hopefully he’ll make it as it’d be a shame if he dropped out now this close to the end.
  5. Nice article and thanks for sharing, I had no idea he was still playing tbh. Cheers Shosky, I think something might’ve changed on the game to allow players to play on for longer but regardless it’ll be great if he can see it through to the end. Thank you PriZe, highly appreciated I feel it’s a lot easier now than when you did yours a couple of years back. A few things but mainly the training for me and not even just aerial but the ability to target individual attributes really helps, especially if you go quickly down the regen route you can really use the training to mould players to how you’d like them to be. I’ll be back with another update later today as I’m keen to get to the end now as it’s been a long journey this!

    Just the sort of response I’ve come to expect from you. With the sudden rise in popularity of Bet1759 I’d be very surprised if you see the year out as unlike your mob they put their customers first and have a fine gentleman as owner. Anyway if you happen to get through the next few bets Bati you’ll have a decent amount of cash so I’ll go £400 on row5 please.

    I hope we are not using FoxBet for these bets as they are a truly horrible company. I’m still owed a fair bit from back in June and I won’t forget.
  8. I’m kind of looking at either Italy or Germany. Germany seemed best at first but not as many miles although that could be a positive as you could maybe take a more varied route. Germany it is for my vote.

    I think I’ll hang back and assess the situation if you make it through the currents bets.
  10. Thanks Scratch, it’ll be interesting what state he is in if he makes the end but I had thought he’d be a touch worse even at this stage if I’m honest. I know he’s poor but his aerial, shooting and movement aren’t totally gone yet especially his aerial. I’m hoping his great leadership will spur him and his team mates on until the end!

  15. Great going with him just being 18. Shame about the injuries though and hopefully he doesn’t end up being too injury prone later on.
  16. Congratulations, very well done after suffering a few little hiccups along the way.

    Yes plus his stake I think. Say you bet £10 at 2/1 and it comes up you’d win £20 plus you’d get your stake back making it £30. I think anyway.

    Nice start for the gambling man. You’ve got a few pending bets so I’ll hang back for now and let those play out 👍
  19. Thank you both, yes just need to play it out now. Cheers Smoggy, he does miss the odd one or two but always did so I’d say he scores about 75% of them. Since his pace has dropped to below about 10 which has been for a few years now, he doesn’t score any near post corner goals but still scores a few open play goals from crosses and the odd free kick. I basically just try to play him in the easier games and most home games if possible so he’ll have a better chance of scoring. He can hardly play two games in a row at this stage so I often just give him the full 90 in a lot of games knowing he won’t be playing in the next match.

    Great idea! I’ll bet £20 on Odd.
  21. It does seem like your original tactic was slightly better but that’s still a great return and he’s well on course.
  22. Good afternoon all, I’m here with another multi season update to hurry this thing along. It’s just a question of how long Moise or myself can keep on going now as if he drops out then so will I as there’ll not be a good enough reason to go the full 30 seasons in that case. Let’s see how the next three seasons went. Season Twenty-Four Moise found the net 18 times this season for club to keep himself ticking along. He’s still got the odd goal in him and as I’ve mentioned previously, he is decent from the spot so hopefully that will continue in these later years which should at least give him the chance of scoring a few goals each season you’d think. He performed well for Italy in scoring 10 goals to bring his season total up to 28 which is more than acceptable at this stage and makes this whole thing a lot easier to play out as if he was just not able to score at all I’d be really sick by now. The team managed to beat Germany in the Confederations Cup final but it took a penalty shootout to yield victory after the boys had struggled to put the ball in the net during normal play. At Juve team won everything this season but didn’t have the best league campaign as we dropped points in a good few games. I’m trying to bring a few younger players through as that will be required if we are to go the distance and doing so kind of hindered us at times I felt. Season Twenty-Five We lost in the World Cup final against France which was frustrating as we actually got caught out with not having a keeper as I’d misjudged the impending retirements of my two keepers. Basically we haven’t had any Italian regen goalkeepers coming through for years and the two I was using were still decent albeit fairly old, anyway they must’ve been due to retire but seemed to still be available into the new season until the final when all of a sudden I’m looking at having to use a greyed out goalie. In fairness he wasn’t too bad and I think playing Kean for the first half was the main problem and by the time I’d taken him off it was too little too late! Once we moved over to New Year and 2043 I offered Kean his last five year deal which he signed which will take him to the end if he doesn’t get sick anyway. At club level we had no real hiccups this year and the team performed better in the league as we went unbeaten with only four draws. The cup finals were all fairly comfortable as you can see below. So with that all we need to reveal now is what kind of return the main man managed. 22 is the answer and with his seven international goals we get a total of 29 which is one more than last season so good going really. Season Twenty-Six Moise produced another fairly decent season in scoring 19 goals this time out, he’s looking poor now with his physical attributes non existent but he can still find the net at times. He managed to score a hat trick this season, okay two of them were penalties but they all count! He added another five goals to his international tally and whilst I was thinking of dropping the Italy job I’ll just continue on for now as it’s easy to manage at the moment and he seems capable of scoring the odd goal especially against the poorer nations. At a Juve we had another good season but failed to win everything as we were beaten by Chelsea in the Champions League final via the dreaded penalty shootout. We had a few poor results in the league campaign but managed to score a few more goals than in recent seasons as we hit 123. Manager Final Thoughts He keeps ticking along and it’s just a matter of playing it out now and as mentioned earlier I’ll keep going as long as he does. Score Moise Kean Season 24: Club: 18 goals in 40 games - Int: 10 goals - Total: 28 Season 25: Club: 22 goals in 39 games - Int: 7 goals - Total: 29 Season 26: Club: 19 goals in 38 games - Int: 5 goals - Total: 24 Club Total: 1766 goals International Total: 428 goals Grand Total: 2194 goals Thanks for reading.

    Help FM Touch or FM Mobile

    I wasn’t aware that FMTouch was available on any phones at this stage but maybe that is going to change for 20? Sounds like FMTouch would be a better choice for you but I know my phone wouldn’t cope too well with it and I imagine it would heat up making the device too hot to handle and my battery would be even more like a count down. I do prefer the mobile version anyway but those reasons above would always put me off and I can’t say I want to start playing on my laptop again if I’m honest.
  24. I just love the Gateshead emblem! Great work with another total rebuild and subsequent promotion.
  25. My IWB’s still seem to offer a bit out wide particularly in the final third on attacking so it’d be interesting to see their behaviour on defensive. Also maybe having IWB’s might force the wingers to stay wider but it’s difficult to tell as although I’ve had the pitch highlights on recently, it’s been on a very fast speed. I might be able to see how many goals have been going to my striker on a better save as I’ve just used my tactic for the community challenge so will have a look at that later on but I best wait as we are behind with our posting and nobody yet knows about my round 😂
