    Well done. It’d be great if you kept going until he retired too. I know that’d be annoying, but it’d set a remarkably high score to ever try and beat. 
    Great stuff.

    Season Seventeen
    Nearly forgot about this thread! 😛
    Transfers:-
    Outgoing:

    Incoming:

    Nothing of serious note apart from the signing of super back up left winger Sissako for a massive £144m + player deal. Seriously though, he looks incredible and I’d rather he be on my team playing second fiddle than tearing up the champions league with Sevilla.
    Competitions:-
    Supertaça - Beat Maritimo 2-1 European Super Cup - Lost to Manchester City 3-2 Club World Cup - Beat América 3-1 League Cup - Beat Estoril 3-0 Taça de Portugal - Beat Feirense 1-0 League - 😛 Champions League - Beat Real Madrid 4-0 So not the clean sweep we’ve come so accustomed to but all the major trophies were won which is always a great feeling
    Manager Profile & Season History:-

    Fábio Silva 2k Challenge:-
    Let’s not beat around the bush this time, he scored 23 on the ITN scene

    Whilst his form during the month of February for the club was scintillating to say the least..

    All in all he had more or less a full season by playing 59 games and scored a whopping 102 goals. 

    Season Goals:-
    ITN - 23
    Club - 102
    Total - 125
    Career Goals:-
    ITN - 285
    Club - 1515
    Total - 1800
    Goals Remaining  - 200
    OCD Silva stops at 1800 on the nose. 200 goals to go to complete this challenge and still a few seasons left to do it!
    As always thank you for reading, and any comments are always appreciated 😁

    Rob’s Season One Score
    So before you read this remember one thing: I am using my Keegan tactic. This is designed to outscore the opponents. At no points have I changed from this tactic. Here we go...
    So, the first tournament that concluded is the League Cup. Did we win it? 

    Nope! Knocked out in the quarters by our North London rivals Arsenal. It wasn’t like we deserved to win either. Terrible. I am already three/four wins behind the boys after this result.
    Could we at least win the FA Cup?

    Just. Penalties. Burnley. Geez. We did batter them though. A team with Neymar, Salah, and Kane could only score 3 from 25 chances.
    Champions League? Could we win that?

    Penalties, again. At least this was against Madrid.
    As for the league, here is the final table:

    3 losses. We won the league though.
    So, I said I’d play a mega attacking formation - my Keegan one - and see how it goes. We scored plenty, so I’ve no doubt it’ll work for scoring challenges, but obviously doesn’t lend itself to not losing the occasional game.
    This, boys and girls, is why you need balance in your teams! 
    I’m going to play the same tactic for the final two seasons as that’s what my squad is built for and see how many more goals and trophies we get, but evidently a sensible formation would have been more beneficial.
    Here are my final Season One stats:

    I am quite a bit behind the boys in third. @Foxywill follow up with some cool graphics later. Thanks for reading!

    Rob reacted to ManlikeReus in Kamal Bafounta - Tipped to be Next Pogba?   
    Hello guys,
    Today I will be sharing about this player I have been intrigued since his announcement for signing for Borussia Dortmund from Nantes last year.
    Name:Kamal Bafounta Ortega
    Age: 16
    Height:1.93m
    Without Further ado,here we go!

    Here is his base stats at start of season 1
    His strongest stats include Aerial Ability(14,undoubtedly),Strength(12),Agression(12)
    Looks nothing alike to Pogba’s stats...
     
    2 Seasons on,

    His stats still look nothing like Pogba’s but there are a few greens.His value has risen significantly from £325k to £6.5m!
    Performance wise,I personally felt he plays pretty well for a young player.He was really solid for all the 41 games he played for me in that 41 games.Probably my favourite aspect about him was the price you could get,though I may not be sure if he is superb for that price.I signed him on £500k at the start of first season and by the end of the second season,I sold him for £15M.The profit may be minimal for a big team but for a smaller team in perhaps championship or lower,That money may come crucial
     
    Verdict:
    He is in no way close to Pogba standards however I feel he would a great bargain player if you are doing a lower division career mode.Hopefully,We will see this man achieve his potential of being the next “Pogba”
    Small little updates as I progress through my save:

    He has some small improvements such as Passing(+1),Stamina(+3),Strength(+2)
    Form:

    I would say not too bad however I expected slightly more from him due to the fact that he is playing in the championship but I’m not going to go too hot on him as he was really just a 500k signing and I don’t expect him to go full ham Pogba in just a few Seasons.

    Rob’s Squad
    The rationale for my squad is simple: goals. Goals, goals, and lots of them. This is why I will be using my ‘Keegan’ tactic for this challenge in the hope that the equation of attacking formation plus the best players does, indeed, equate to success. It helped me get 100 goals with Dele Alli once, so hopefully it’ll contribute to a metric pooptonne of goals here.
    So whenever I completed a pick in the draft my rationale was to always choose the best individual player I could find of that category, not someone with great teamwork, etc. It just allowed me to try the ‘I’ll score more than you’ methodology and see how it goes.
    Here is my squad:

    So, the basics:
        ⁃    Not many defenders. A bit risky if many get injured, but what the heck? My first two choices - VVD and Varane - were snared by my enemies;
        ⁃    Plenty of options in midfield and attack. I was pleased Isco and Dembele have green in midfield which allowed me to grab them. Pogba scores a lot in this game so he was essential;
        ⁃    I managed to get my first choice three players of Neymar, Salah, and Kane. Delighted with that!
        ⁃    Icardi is one of my favourite players in the game. He has always scored whenever I have used him;
        ⁃    I expect this is the same for the other two chaps, but my squad is big, and good, enough to rotate a second team in for the easier games.
    This challenge is going to be great fun. We all have completely different tactics so you should see some cracking numbers and tonnes of trophies. 
    I will leave with one final statement: I know @Foxy and @Woody are quality managers, ‘but I’ll tell you, honestly, I will love it if we beat them. Love it.’

    And here is the challenge...
    Football Manager is all about fantasy. Fantasy teams, fantasy tactics, and fantasy squads. But what about a fantasy draft to join all of that together?

    American Football has them. Teams pick from a collegiate system, keeping things as fair as possible. This career will replicate that.

    Myself, @Foxy, and @Woody will be using a draft system, coupled with the in-game editor, to assemble our fantasy squads to compete against each other over three seasons in a head-to-head-to-head (h2h2h). Our Manager Profile page will show our overall wins, losses, and draws in all completions (league and cups). Three points will be awarded for a win and one for a draw. The player with the most points at the end of the three seasons wins. In the unlikely chance of a tie-break it’ll be sorted by goal difference.
    I will be Spurs, @Foxy will be Liverpool, and @Woody will be Man City. Each squad will contain no more than 23 players and will be comprised as we see fit. If Woody wants a squad of 10 goalkeepers and 13 strikers then it is entirely his choice. All players not draft just be released from the squad. Only the selected 23 players and greyed out players can be used (the latter in the case of emergency).
    As it is a draft it means we cannot have the same player. The draft will be categorised in to defence (GK, SW, RB, CB, and LB), midfield (DM, RM, CM, LM), and attack (RW, AM, LW, FR, FC, FL). We will draft each category one at a time in a private thread and then post our final squads. As I topped the last h2h2h I get to pick which draft I get first choice in and opted for attack. Foxy will pick first from defence and Woody first from midfield.
    So, there you have it. Nice and simple. 3 seasons, 3 unique squads, 3 very different tactics. Let battle commence!
