    Season 11
    Last time out we celebrated Parrott getting over 100 club goals for the season. What can he achieve this season?
    Transfers
    Like last season we didn’t do a lot of business. We did however have a few ins and outs.
    Ins
    We brought in Cesarini who is a young player who will be playing in the flanks in the coming season. Morini is a young centre back brought in from Lyon for 36.5m and I’ve got high hopes for him.
    Outs
    We sold Oyarzabal to Southampton; it was one of those where the offer came in and I decided to let him go as he wasn’t playing a load of games for us.
    My Son
    I got my son come through the academy and whilst he’s got some decent attributes for a youngster I can’t help but feel that with leadership of only 1 he won’t feature much if at all for the first team.
    League
    Ligue 1 Conforama
    We won every game bar the one draw. We did however concede 19 which is poor compared to most seasons but I did rotate a lot at the beginning of the season and suffered a few defensive collapses. 
    Cups
    Trophee des Champions
    We beat Lyon in a one sided match which finished 3-1 and Jair dos Santos Martins stole the show with a hat trick.
    European Super Cup
    Parrott got a brace in a 4-0 hammering of Arsenal.
    Club World Championship 
    We won the final 5-0 with Parrott bagging himself a hat trick.
    Coupe de la Ligue BKT
    We beat Amiens SC 2-0 in the final with Parrott getting a goal.
    French Cup
    In the French Cup final we beat Lyon 3-1 and Parrott managed to get a goal.
    Champions Cup
    A rather comfortable win against Chelsea in the final but Parrott couldn’t get himself on the scoresheet.

    Not much has changed with my stats but I’m now a member of the board so at least I can’t get the sack.
    Parrott’s Season
    We couldn’t quite get Parrott his 100 goals this season but he got close. He did get a 2 week injury but he still managed to play 61 times during the season.

    Conclusion
    Although Parrott didn’t perform as well this season I’m still happy with his 96 goals for the season. He didn’t start the season quite so well and I take the blame for that as I think was over rotating the players and maybe some of the younger ones aren’t quite up to standard. Parrott now wants a new challenge though so we’ll see if that hinders his form in the coming season.

    Another great season even accounting for the injury. I can see  how International football will be difficult with China.
    Yeah I’ve noticed the goal scorer bug too, I’ve seem people mention it a few times on the bug forum but it seems as though it may be one of those that they can’t seem to fix. 
    It’ll be like Parrott Alvarez or even just a random name but when you click on the name it goes to Parrott’s page. It never seems to happen when the game is live it just seems to show up when you go through the fixture list looking at games.

    Season 7
    When I started this challenge I had a tactic where a good percentage of team goals were scored by the striker so I thought I’d use that but modify it slightly to make it more aggressive and hopefully score more goals. After last seasons poor performance of 58 I decided that for this next season I would revert the instructions back to their original settings and just see what happens. So let’s see how the team and Parrott got on in season 7. I’ll go through the ins and outs first.
    Transfers
    Ins
    Oyarzabal and Vlasic were brought in to play on the flanks. Pasquali was bought as a prospect for the future; he’s a midfielder that I expect to feature heavily in the coming seasons. The rest are just graduates of which a couple look decent but I’ve kept all of them to help with that French Cup game that falls in the international break should I get that far.

    Outs
    Just the one out in Neymar who I was tempted to keep as he still performed well last season and produces a good few assists for Parrott but with his high wages and the fact that I’m going to have to replace him at some point I decided not to offer him a contract extension.

    League
    Ligue 1 Conforama
    Routine league campaign although we drew a game this season and didn’t score as many goals.

    Cups
    Trophiee des Champions
    We deserved the win but the match was a lot closer than you’d expect.

    Euro. Super Cup
    Strange match this as it was all very comfortable for the most part but we conceded 3 which was disappointing.

    Club World Championship
    Comfortable win for the boys but no goal for Parrott as I didn’t play him. He was slightly tired going into the semi and didn’t perform so I decided to rest him for this to hopefully get him fully fit for future games.

    Coupe de la Ligue BKT
    A routine win against OM but no goal for Parrott.

    French Cup
    We were the better team in this match but still had a struggle to get the result.

    Champions Cup
    A hat trick for Parrott in the final against Barca but again we didn’t defend too well in another final. Still won though.

    Stadium
    A new stadium which we decided to name Parrott Palace.

    Parrotts Season
    Parrott managed 79 goals in 57 appearances which is his best total yet.

    Again more improvements in stats usually by about 1 for most key attributes. Would like his strength to get up to 15 and his pace and shooting both to 20 but he’s an animal aIready and with the right tactic would put up some numbers.

    Challenge Total
    Seasons Goals: 79
    + previous total of 353

    Conclusion
    The team didn’t score as many but Parrott got a higher percentage of the goals. I know my system is not perfect for a 1k challenge especially with using two inside forwards and a poacher but hopefully I can get Parrott over the line.

    Season 10
    Last season Parrott managed 90 goals which I suppose means that my target now has to be to get 100 goals in a season. Can he do do it this season?
    Transfers
    We didn’t do a great deal of business in this window as the squad is strong and I’ve been rotating the players more in recent seasons to try and keep everyone happy.
    Ins
    We bought Jair dos Santos Martins from Brighton for 51m. He was brought in to play on the flanks.
    Outs
    The only outgoings were the youth players that I decided to let go. I only keep all of the youth each season to help with the quarter final of the French Cup that falls in the middle of the international break as I nearly got caught out with that in the earlier seasons and could hardly field a team. 
    Youth
    During the last few seasons I’ve been rebuilding the squad with young players and good few of them are now regulars in the first team so I thought I’d showcase some of them below. Most of them came through the youth system but a couple were bought young. 
    League
    Ligue 1 Conforama
    The team had a very good campaign winning every game and scoring 125 goals and only conceding 6.

    Another brace for Parrott in a 4-0 win over Melbourne Victory in the final.
    Coupe de la Ligue BKT
    We beat SM Caem in the final but Parrott couldn’t score.
    French Cup
    Parrott helped himself to a hat trick in a 4-0 win against Lyon in the final.
    Champions Cup
    We were the better team against Liverpool winning the final 3-1. Parrott got a goal to end his season in style.

    Parrott’s Season
    Well Parrott managed to get 106 goals and although it took him 64 games which is nothing truly special I’m still happy! 😀
    Earlier in the season he wanted a new challenge which slightly worried me so I thought I’d offer him a new deal and luckily he signed so now he’s tied down for years.

    Parrott hits his highest goal tally so far with 90 so I’m happy with that. I’m basically using my original system from the start but with mixed passing instead of short and I think it’s improving the percentage of goals going to Parrott. We move onto a new season now and hopefully Parrott can keep scoring!

    A comfortable campaign as usual but we had 1 defeat and 3 draws; I did experiment with a few ideas at the beginning of the season which I think cost us some of those results. My goalkeepers are all young too which I think may have had an impact on my defensive record although we never had any defensive collapses throughout the season so it was probably my tinkering that did it.

    Cups
    Trophee des Champions
    We beat Monaco fairly easily with Parrott getting on the scoresheet.

    Euro. Super Cup
    We hammered Tottenham in the Euro Super Cup and Parrott stole the show against his old club scoring a hat trick.

    Club World Championships
    Another hammering in the Club World Championship but Parrott could only get one goal.

    Coupe de la Ligue BKT
    We beat Rennes in the final easily enough but we were a bit wasteful in front of goal.

    French Cup
    In the French Cup Final we played Rennes again and it was a bit more comfortable this time with Parrott getting a goal in a 3-0 win.

    Champions Cup
    We were probably the second best team in this close tie as I think I was a bit cautious tactically from the get go. Parrott came good though scoring the winner in extra time.

    Parrott’s Season
    Parrott got 80 goals this season after playing in 61 games. I’m happy with this total though as I did a bit of tweaking during the season which just didn’t work.

    He’s a top top player now but I’d still like green on strength.

    Challenge Total
    Seasons Goals: 80
    + previous total of 432
    Total: 512/1000
    Conclusion
    I’m happy with this season as I was taking a risk having no experienced keeper at the club and Parrott managed his highest tally of 80 which was nice for me and him of course. We move onto season 9 now and I’ve got a lot of work to do finding long term replacements for my aging squad members.

    Vagnoman came in as cover at right wing back. I brought in Caqueret as an option in midfield and Daryl Ward was bought as a back up goalkeeper. The other two are just graduates from the youth set up and I think they’ll both maybe make the first team in years to come. Esteban Louisy- Daniel is a left wing back and Josue Larvaron is a goalkeeper.

    Outs
    Telles left at the end of the season on a bosman, Guedes went to Arsenal and Meunier was sold to OM as he was getting on a bit so wasn’t playing many games. The rest are just reserve to players who I don’t need and Larvaron went out on loan to hopefully get some game time.

    Parrott’s Season
    He’s a fantastic player now apart from his stamina and strength. If he’s not getting big numbers now then I guess it’s my tactics at fault.

    He got 65 in 58 games so not groundbreaking but I feel I’ve still got time on my side. Assists are too high so I’ll try to tweak my system one last time.

    Progress I suppose but I have a feeling I may need to change my system if I want to get the big numbers. I’ll stick with my current system for next season and if he doesn’t get into the 70’s then I think I’ll need to come up with a new tactic.

    Season 3
    Here we are in Season 3. We won everything last season and Parrott showed a bit more promise. We’ll see how he performed in season 3.
    Any I’ll get started with the transfers.
    Transfers
    Ins
    Onana came in to compete with Becker for the number 1 GK spot. Ajer was bought as a rotation player for either central defence or midfield. I wasn’t sure how often he’d play but didn’t want to risk not having enough cover for those positions. Pellegrini came in to battle it out for a place in midfield whilst Pied came in through the youth set up and is golden! This is his attributes after first season. 

    He is going to be class. I also brought Trent in during the January transfer window to replace outgoing Klostermann who was somehow sold, I say somehow as I’m sure I clicked to not accept the transfer but maybe I hit wrong button. Anyway Trent is better but also cost a lot.

    Outs
    Ajer left after the season finished to go to Monaco as he wasn’t happy not playing very often. Klostermann went to Arsenal and not sure why Marquinhos transfer is on last seasons outs and this seasons, guess it must have been the timing of the transfer. Rest were just players I had no plans for.

    A bit of a hammering for Porto. Parrott got a brace but Mbappe stole the show with a hat trick.

    Club World Championship
    Victory in a one sided final but we didn’t bring our shooting boots and had to settle for just the 2 goals.

    Coupe de la Ligue BKT
    Victory was had in the final in an easy match with Parrott getting in on the action.

    French Cup
    A closer game in the final but we started to play in the second half and managed to get the winner to avoid extra time (Well that’s if it goes to extra time as it may just be straight to pens).

    Champions Cup
    We were the better team in the final but it was hard work getting past Man City to win the trophy for the second year running.

    Parrott’s Season
    His attributes have increased but his stamina and strength are still lacking but I have no doubt they’ll improve once he gets into his 20’s.

    Same goal total as last year but with a few games less played.

     
    Challenge Total
    Season goals: 62
    + previous total of 103
    Total: 165/2000
    Conclusion
    Parrott started the season well but hit a brick wall in the middle of the season when he got a little injury and had a horrible spell until about February. I’m still tweaking a lot and I changed a few things in February and he had a great run after that. I think judging by his assists my system may not be optimal with too many goals going to their players. He didn’t get as many assists from February onwards though and scored over a goal a game in that period so I’ll stick with it for this next season at least.
