    Cheers mate. Not far from finishing season one. Not entirely sure the Madrid faithful appreciate my style of football though 😭

    I’ve been trying to get a bit of enthusiasm back for FMM - my Isak 1kc pretty much drained me - so I’ve decided (alongside my Strikerless H2H with Taff) to try this challenge created by @Titjes.
    It can be found here:
    In a nutshell, you play three seasons each  at Real Madrid and Barcelona, starting from scratch each time. At Madrid you sell/demote Bale, Benzema, and Ronaldo, replacing them with a player each from Wales, France, and Portugal who perform in the top line. At Barca you sell/demote Messi, Suarez, and Dembele (as Neymar has already left for the riches of Paris) and replace them with an Argentinian, Uruguayan, and Brazilian who also play anywhere in the top line.
    The target is to beat the goals and assists set by each trio. Points are awarded for league and cup wins, as well as goal difference.
    As the Barcelona targets are much higher, and because I am a grade A chicken, I am starting with Madrid. The Real Madrid totals to beat over the three seasons are:
    102 assists; 269 goals So who did I picked to replace the boys?
    Well, for Wales the options aren’t too great. I did ponder using Woodburn, but I opted for Berti’s brother:

    Big Sam (no, not that one) has hopped on the jet to join us. So which Portuguese chap has followed him?

    Andre Silva followed his heart - more likely the money - and came on over. Let’s hope he is a Giant for us. 
    For the Frenchman I had a few options, but I thought I would brave the mean streets of Glasgow and get this lad in.

    One of the world’s many Dembele’s has come onboard.
    Wish me luck!

    Great stuff. I love that he smashed five in to make sure. Only thing I’d add is that your target is 1kc and GAM. Just my opinion, but don’t let the lure of 1.5k distract you from the overall target.

    Great stuff. Going way past 1.5K with Arp I reckon. 😄 Amiri is ... what's a word for better than fantastic? That! I can't get the same out of him (in the first season since buying him anyway). Brilliant. It's just that GAM which is the problem. Keep going, it'll be one of those down to the wire things... Good luck!
    LOL, I do this all the time... I wish they weren't next to each other. At least they don't get upset about it. "It's okay boss, I know how it goes, you were trying to tell me I'm great but you sent me off to the B squad by accident. No worries, happens to me all the time"...

    77 and 80 are going to be tricky if his stamina drops. I can see you starting Leon on the bench in future games.

    I'm back with second update of this crusade. Trying not to keep you waiting forever cause I believe it kills the intrigue. 
    Season 2. The French
    I've been looking at lots of players and of course there are some very good established ones. But not a lot of clubs can afford to buy a World class lad in it's second season. 
    Another factor is that I wanted to go a different path then my predecessor @Titjes He took Tolisso who is a hell of a player. 
    And even though he had this lad later on in his career I bought him to be next Fabulous 10. 
    Introducing... Thomaaaas Leeeemaaaaaar (to be fare it sounded much better in my head while I was writing it)

    again no "before" photo but look at his stats. It is ridiculous how some players are so good in their early 20s. 
    This season was good as well. I tweaked a few things and actually kept tweaking it throughout the season. We didn't score as many goals but our goalie did a bit better as well
    If we'll look at it at a different perspective Not goals per game But goals per goal conceded this season was even better. Scoring 3.1 goals per 1 conceded against 2.55 last season. 
    Anyhow enough of talking... here is how we went in second season. 
    Players IN
    was lucky to sign Goretzka for free and Zapata, well he was a p/ex for Milinkovic-Savic in January. I had to get another good CM/box-to-box
    Players OUT
    not sure why but Pjanic didn't fit in my tactic. 
    We opened the season with Euro Super Cup
    Followed with Italian Super Cup
    Woohoo Club World Ch'ship (like somebody cares about it)
    29 games in a season and we get pronounced the one and only in Serie A
    Killed it in Italian Cup
    and finished of with Second in a row CL
    Poor Arsenal... They encountered us twice and both times in big final games. Have to give them some credit for this CL final. They almost won if it wasn't for Perica with his 90+1 goal. 
    Overall I believe it was a pretty good season with plenty of goals and fun games. Going to be working of netting more goals and putting a better defense. Here is stats for this season. Goals and Assists accordingly
    As you can see Thomas Lemar is the top dog both ways. So choosing Lemar over Tolisso paid off. As well as I think Lemar's season was the best in @Titjes career. He is truly amazing player for any job in final third. He'll score, he'll assist, he'll do whatever it takes for the win. 

    I'm even sure that I will be able to have a better number 10 for the rest of this career. 
    Season 1: 23+38= 51 points
    Season 2: 39+40= 79 points
    Total 130 and five seasons to go

    Rob2017 reacted to samhardy in Home Nations Triple Threat   
    Coming up to 4 months since this was last updated now and I said my only remaining target was to get Woodburn to 1K.
    Since it's been so long as you've guessed I have stopped playing it so this will be the last update for this career.
    Woodburn reached the 1K easily as he was expected to do.

    I believe that was the first time I'd got a striker to 100 goals in a season before so that was a personal milestone as well. It was going to be even bigger the next season until this happened.

    Here's what he looks like at the end.

    Cheers to everyone who followed this from the start and I'm delighted it ended with both the triple threat and the 1K completed
    Ben Woodburn final total - 1011

    Another great season. Get Arp over the lines in the next season and a bit and then Leon can become the focus of the team.  Keep grinding away.
    (grinding in the clean way, of course)

    I had aims for all three challenges in this season. First I wanted to tick off at least 3 times with Leon in the GaM although more would be great, second I wanted to score at least 87 goals with Arp which is half the total he needs for the 1k and would leave me with a chance to complete it next season and thirdly I needed 29 assists from Amiri to get him to 400 for the club.
    Lets see how I did.
     
    Goretzka GaM
    I would love to get to the position where I have ticked off an entire half so that I only need to play Leon for 45mins a game which would conserve his energy. Saying that he played 57 games this season although he always comes off with 80 mins on the clock as he has all the times after that. He started to get tired in the final months of the season but he is still a beast and only had a couple of small injuries this season which was helped by switching him to fitness training. He got 20 goals this season and as a side note also 21 assists which is the 2nd highest total of his career. He managed to meet my target of three times ticked off which means he has 9 left to do, 4 in the 1st half and 5 in the 2nd.

    Arp 1kc
    At the end of last season Arp needed 173 goals to reach the magic 1000 goal mark and I hoped I could get half that this year which is 86 goals that would give me a chance of finishing the 1k next season. Arp is 29 now so he should still have a few years ahead of him so the sooner I get the 1k done then the sooner I could think about pushing him towards bigger targets. In the end he missed out by 2 goals on my target as he knocked in 85 goals. That means he is 88 goals away which is achievable if everything goes my way but it maybe that he needs a couple of games the season after to get over the line.

     
    Amiri vs Havertz assist challenge
    Amiri needed 29 assists to hit the 400 mark and of course more than that would be even better and he was helped by the fact he never got any serious knocks this year and played 58 games. He did enough and a little more as he recorded 32 assists and now sits on the total of 403 with the next target being 450. At 32 it may be a bit much to get him to 500 but perhaps I can get him close.

    Any Other Business
    Transfers
    Very little happened in the transfer market this year with no major players leaving and only one new face in the shape of English playmaker/winger Oscar Alnwick joining.

     
    Competitions
    The Copa del Rey had escaped us over the last 2 seasons but we regained that trophy this year as we completed a clean sweep of trophies.

    Team Stats
     
    The 1k is so close I can almost taste it now but it still may not happen next season as I will be prioritising Goretzka for set pieces to give him more chance of ticking more times off and then there is always the chance of injuries as well.
    Cheers lads

    Decent start. I’d be a little disappointed.
    I jest! Cracking start chap. Kane looks utterly beautiful, plus that’s a great return for Sane. I like the idea that they mimmick the cafe scene as their goal celebration.
