    Rob2017 got a reaction from Nucleus in Strikerless Double Trouble and Triple Threat Challenge   
    We have all seen Double Trouble and Triple Threat attempts on the forum, but they are with strikers. Can YOU achieve either with a Strikerless formation?
    For those that don’t know, a Double Trouble involves two pre-selected players scoring more than 1200 goals between them in a career. A Triple Threat involves three selected players scoring more than 1500 goals between them in a career. 
    The rules are simple:
    (Credit to @Foxy for the basis of these)
    You can combine both challenges in to one career or do them separately - it is entirely up to you; Your chosen players must not have any green ability at playing as a striker; International goals count only if you are the manager of that nation and all players are of the same nationality; Your formation must not have anyone playing in the five top line position; No cheating including reloading and IGE 💪 EME match engine; Post a career here on Vibe; Have fun.  Leaderboard

    I’m happy to post my tactic as a separate tactic post if people are interested? I’m not that fussed about people nicking it as I’d like to think I’ve established myself as being an originator.

    If anyone is still awake and following, here are the end of career stats:
    Team/manager

    We averaged 3.54 goals per game, which was really good considering we didn’t have a striker. However, what I would add is that this whole career was about scoring goals. Our win percentage of 81% is good, but not brilliant, so I wouldn’t ever recommend my tactic as one that wins everything. We also spent a lot of money and benefitted from unlocking sugar daddy during the career.
    We had a decent trophy return. We won the league in every season (Bayern, duh!) but averaged 2.6 cups a season.

    When it came to the Champs Cup we were very inconsistent, winning exactly half (eight) of the 16 played. 

    Players

    37, 37, and 36 at the end. My training worked wonders as they retained some beautiful greens. The physicals were falling away though and they were getting subbed early in each game towards the end seasons, which was a pain.
    In terms of stats, I’ve printsscreened their goals and assists for previous clubs so we can subtract them from the totals:

    Coman has nothing elsewhere, so bagged 494 goals and a whopping 602 assists.

    Lemar got 15 goals elsewhere giving us a 1/2 kc goals and 312 assists.

    Asensio got 17 goals elsewhere, which meant he got 895 goals for us and 383 assists.
    The Triple Threat of Asensio, Lemar, and Coman got 1,889 goals and 1,297 assists between them. Asensio and Lemar got the best Double Trouble total of 1,395. The threesome also scored 62% of our total goals.

    @Foxy please add me to the scoreboard for the Strikerless goals.
    @Rob2017 you handsome man please add me to your fabulous new Strikerless DT and TT leaderboard.
    @danovic78 please add Coman to your assists leaderboard before @Nucleus smashes it! 😭
    Thanks to all that have read and commented.

    December
    Right lads, busy month ahead with seven fixtures to go through so I’ll keep it as brief as I can as to not bore you 😝
    Gameweek 15: Man Utd (A)
    Cagey game ended in a stalemate despite us having the most chances. A point I was happy to take

    Gameweek 16: Chelsea (A)
    We took our chances in this one, running out 3-1 winners with a brace from Harry

    Gameweek 17: Burnley (H)
    Dominant performance across the board sees us comfortably win 3-0 with another brace from Harry. Come on Laurence where you at?!

    Gameweek 18: Newcastle (H)
    Oh, there you are 😍 Brace from Laurence sees us smash the Magpies 6-1 with the performance of the season so far!

    Gameweek 19: Everton (A)
    Strange game, thought we’d got the point when Harry equalised in the 95th minute, only for Rooney to score straight from the following kick off to give the Toffees an undeserved win

    Gameweek 20: Bournemouth (A)
    The fixture congestion was really getting to us apparently as we had to settle for a point at Bournemouth after seemingly being the worst side too!

    Gameweek 21: Brighton (H)
    We make it through December with a win against Brighton, with Harry scoring what proved to be the winner.

    Month Review:
    A mixed bag of results but overall it was a fantastic month considering the opponents we faced and the quality of the side. 14/21 points is not to be sniffed at in a busy December month i suppose.

    League Table:
    Our seven point cushion is reduced to five, but we do have a game in hand so that could potentially turn to an eight point lead. Other than that the leagu looks tight, with just five points separating 2nd and 8th

    The Slab Head Brothers
    Harry Maguire:
    7 in 7 this month for the big man as he finds himself on 24 goals at the end of the year.

    Laurence Maguire:
    Finally found some form of some sort this month, with two, yes two goals. In the same match might I add! What a player, a legend of the game already.

    Points
    Harry: 24
    Laurence: 25
    League: 49
    Total: 98
     
    Thanks for reading guys 😁

    Two or three months to go until a Lemar retires (and he still won’t reconsider!) he does this:

    It very much reminds me that this is, indeed, a video game.
    The Final season, and the end of this career, ended with a bit of a damp squib.

    We crashed out of the Champs Cup, followed by injuries to two of my three boys that meant they missed the remaining games.

    But at least we won the league.

    Giving us an overall season of this...

    I will do a career write up in a bit and do final scores.

    Firstly, a bonus photo. @Woody‘s last converted winger - Calum Paterson - who played up front and scored 90 goals got In to Team of the Season. At right back! (Which I think may have happened in someone’s (Sam, I think?) before)

    Season 6
    This challenge has met really high standards so far, which has bizarrely put a lot of pressure on us all. Both @Foxy and @Woody have both hit 90 in their last seasons, so I had a challenge to match them and also hit my previous effort of 96 goals.
    So who did I sign as my converted winger?  Well, I scoured the transfer market and looked at players who fitted my profile and had a green on the wing. One player caught my eye - one player I have a bit of history with. This man:

    Yep, my Strikerless hero Asensio has joined us! I know he isn’t ideal for the challenge, but I couldn’t resist.
    Transfers 
    In terms of other bits and business I sold Vinicius and Rodrygo for large profits having purchased them cheaply in my previous season. I also couldn’t turn down the offer for Krovinovic. I also managed to sell Paterson, which will upset the Woodster.

    Incomings were the main man, but also Pulisic. The others were more investments. I’ve also got a few more lined up for the end of the season, so it’ll be interesting if Foxy confirms them or not.

    Trophies
    The chaps has smashed the competitions so far. It gave me all the fixtures but also made me want to give Foxy everything to play in. The Supertaca and Euro Super Cup double came first. 

    A Keita hat trick and one for Marco in the Supertaca.

    And then a brace apiece for the main man and Joao Carvalho (who is brilliant). 
    We bashed our way through the league, crushing teams. At Christmas we had a break whilst we played in the CWC.
      
    Another Asensio double got us the cup.
    I tightened the formation up a bit towards the business end of the season to give us the best chance of winning everything. Next up was the League Cup final, which we took comfortably. 

    The league was won nice and early and we had progressed nicely towards the domestic Cup and Champions Cup finals.

    Despite dominating the game we lost the Cup on penalties. Would we do the same in the Champions Cup?
    Nope!
     
    We actually had the reverse. Bayern dominated the game but we nicked it, with Asensio grabbing what turned out to be the winner.

    We only lost one all season, which was the League Cup on pens. Job done.
    Our overall record and percentages looks good still.

    Asensio
    How did Asensio do? He had a few injury niggles, but still managed to play 59 games as the main injury of almost a few months had a busy international period in it.
    His attributes looked great at the end, but I never managed to retrain him fully.

    Sadly, though, he didn’t hit the 90 goal mark. He still did great though, with 86 goals.

    So now we only need 484 goals to get our 1kc from Converted Wingers.

    Jiggily wiggly, another one done and dusted.
    WE HAVE A STRIKERLESS DOUBLE TROUBLE!!! WOOHA!

    The front three are all 35 now and have two seasons left on their contracts following this season and therefore have a bit of a decrease in their numbers.

    I purchased some young ones again.

    Asensio still managed to get more than a goal a game. Coman kept up his assists.

    So two more seasons to go. Triple Threat and Double Trouble completed. Asensio won’t get 1kc, but I want to get above 900 which may be hard as he is deteriorating a bit and having to get subbed earlier. I also want to get towards 600 for Coman’s assists.
    Thanks!

    I’m going to post the final season in a few updates, then do a bit of a career write-up at the end in case anyone is interested. 
    Anyhow, pre-season came and we signed one player to cover in defence. I will do screens at the end in case I spend during the season. 
    The final World Team of the Season was announced and Asensio made it for the first time!

    In central midfield, even though he has never played there. A few of my boys made the all-time team.

    Havertz has been amazing, and then it is good to see Lemar and Coman get the recognition they deserve.
    We have played the first three games of the season.

    Asensio scores the winner in a tight Germa Super Cup. Yet hilarity ensued in the Euro Super Cup as City blagged a late winner entirely against the run of play.

    And I know it’s not a final, but the first round of the German Cup had this:

    He is 36!!!! I think I love him.

    One more Season in the can. One more to go. I’ve become a bit disheartened since Asensio has decided to retire at the end of his so my enthusiasm has waned. I did toy with reloading every game that Asensio didn’t score (💪) but chose not to. 😭
    My transfers were basically short term signings knowing we don’t have many more seasons.


    We did a lot better overall than I expected especially as we started off quite slow. After a few months I did wonder if I’d be the first ever Bayern manager to not win the league.

    The boys are all now about 36 so their input isn’t as high as it was.

    But it was still decent. 

    1800 goals between the three. Delighted with that.
    Should not be long until The Final Season is complete.

    Rob2017 reacted to Nucleus in FMM19 Wishlist: Training and why it should be improved   
    Training, a vital part of a footballers career, a part that you could say makes a player. Legends are made under the dazzling lights of stadiums, but they are born on the training ground. It’s also unfortunately a part that is very limited to us as FMM players. Here’s where I think SI could improve on in regards to training for FMM19 and beyond.
    First of all let me clarify that I’m happy to keep the current training system we have in place as it is. That could serve as the Team’s General Training Regime, maybe add a few more slots so we can variate a bit more freely, but otherwise it’s a decent template for a Mobile Game. What I would like to see introduced however, is Individual Player Training. Individual Player Training would allow us to mould our players whichever way we see fit, and I’ll tell you how.
    Additional Focus Training:
    Additional Focus Training could be used to give a player extra training in specific attributes alongside the team’s general training regime. Additional focus would play an important part in shaping your players development, but more importantly it would give you much more freedom to shape a player to your needs.
    For example, you could set these additional focuses to each player:-
    A specific attribute focus - With this, a player would spend his additional focus time on improving a single attribute. Got a striker that you’d like to have more shooting? Then give him additional focus on the shooting attribute. Got a defender with poor decision making? Then give him additional focus on the decisions attribute, and so on. Remember, your team’s general training regime is always in play, all these are are extra training regimes filtered down to your individual choice for that player. Role Focus - With this a player would spend his additional focus time on improving a “set” of attributes related to a tactical role. Got a player you use as an advanced forward but you fancy his chances as a target man? Then an individual focus on the TM role would try and improve his Aerial, Shooting, Aggression and Strength. Key attributes for a target man. What this does, is allow more attributes to trained but it would obviously have a lesser effect on each one trained as the training time would be shared amongst each attribute. Positional Training:
    Or to be more precise, the scrapping of the current system. Ever witnessed first hand, the frustration of trying to retrain a player that you believe could play in a certain position, only for your “coach” to tell you he has zero aptitude in training for that position? I have, and it sucks. For example, a poor example actually but still an example. Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia, two natural wingers but have somehow found themselves playing as wingbacks. Gareth Bale, a left full-back by trade, pushed up the wing after the tactical instruction of Joe Jordan and look at him now. Sergio Ramos, Javier Mascherano, Vincent Kompany, Thierry Henry the list goes on. All of these players found success after switching positions. Positions that we have now all been accustomed with them playing in.
    The point I’m trying to make is that we should be the ones to determine where a player can retrain to,  not an in-game coach who as we all know don’t really work effectively anyway. Granted, it wouldn’t always work, but it would make the game much more immersive than it is right now in my honest opinion. Imagine the joy of deciding to push your full-back up the wings or even as a striker and realising a world class player develop under your eyes!
    Player Trait Training:
    Player Trait Training could be used to train a player to learn a new trait or forget an unwanted trait he already has. Before setting Player Trait Training up, it would be important to make sure that the trait would be beneficial for the player, because remember, all this extra training adds to his workload and he could be at risk of injury if pushed too much. For those of you not sure what I mean when I say traits, I’m talking about the text you see on a player’s position page:-

    As you can see here, Mbappé has a few traits as an Advanced Forward on this page, the three we see are “gets into opposition area” “moves into channels” and “places shots”
    If there’s plenty of interest, I’d be happy to write an article describing what each trait does in-game.
    There’s two ways to train a player to learn a new trait:-
    Coached by Club Staff - This one speak for itself. One of your coaches would train the player to learn a new trait. This is where we could have more use of the staff in-game. If I wanted one of my defenders to learn a defensive trait, I’d assign that task to my defensive coach, and vice versa with an attacking player learning an attacking trait. Player Mentoring - This would be a nice fun and possibly useful addition to the current set up. This is simply getting an older, more experienced player at the club to tutor a younger inexperienced player for a set amount of time. This could be teaching the younger player a new trait, or even going as far as to change his personality. For example, a ‘professional’ tutor could teach a young eccentric player to be more professional. Or a “determined” tutor could try and rub off on a player who needs some guidance and pushing in the right direction. These are just a few ideas that in my opinion would improve on the current game.
    What are your thoughts on training? Do you agree with what I suggested above? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
    As always Vibe, Thanks for Reading.
