    @broodje kip, mate we did great and hopefully next edition, we go even better.

    Kanegan reacted to Dagion in Dagion goes to the movies: Alvin and the chipmunks   
    Next up: Alvin and the Chipmunks!
    Not sure if I've actually seen this one but the challenge itself is pretty straightforward.
    Pick three players whose names start with A(lvin), S(imon) and T(heodore). Do a triple threat challenge (by playing them in the striker positions) and the score will be their total assists and goals.
    Bonus points for team of the week (+1), team of the year (+10), and world player of the year (+25).
    With all those bonuses in play it only seemed fit to manage a world class team with world class players. Well maybe I missed the part of all the bonuses but we went with Kaiserslautern. In the 3. Liga in Germany..
    Ah well, not changing it now since we finished it but you probably can get a lot of bonus points I guess. Or regular points with like, I don't know, skilled players.
    However, off we go to present our amazing Chipmunks!
    First up, our "Alvin". Bought from the Dutch powerhouse located in Eindhoven. Or at least when I manage them, FC Eindhoven!

    Seems decent and a lot of yellow so with a bit of training quite flexible.
    Next, our "Simon". Bought from Belgian side Oosterzonen Oosterwijk for 30k. I was just searching for a willing striker with high finishing and he came up. Pretty solid performer though.

    And last, our "Theodore". I loaded up a bunch of leagues and searched for the actual name but there aren't any I could find. Close enough I think!

    I was going to play two strikers with Theodor as my AMC but the rules of a TT state you play your guys up front so I ended up retraining him as an AML to play in the forward IF spot on the left.
    Fun fact; I only could find three Alvin's, and two of them are Dutch. You can actually come pretty close doing this at a higher lever, depending on some leniency from @Thepremiermanager.
    For example, playing Calvin Stengs, Simone Zaza and Theodor Gebre Selassie (who looks pretty decent as a winger) up front. Calvin wouldn't qualify but all the Alvin's are lower league material.
    Not going into much detail here, the league was pretty fun to play in. A lot of known clubs were actually in the same league. For example, Uerdingen and Unterhaching (probably my age) but also 1860 München, Hansa Rostock, Braunschweig (played Bundesliga in 2014?) and Duisburg.
    In the end we won the league pretty convincingly. Cup we went out of in the early stages (read: first round) so that wasn't good for our TT.

    We got a decent amount of mentions in the Team of the week.
    And even one (well two) mentions in the team of the year.

    Why Aboukhlal is in I don't know, he only played 14 games.
    In total that gives us 31 bonus points. Not too shabby considering the quality of my Chipmunks. Theodor actually got in the most, probably due to him being a retrained midfielder?
    On to the individual stats, first up Alvin.

    7 goals and 18 assists. Higher rating than Aboukhlal (his backup) and more games so what the hell! Didn't score that many but assists are good I guess.
    Second Chipmunk, Simon.

    23 goals and still 6 assists being my man in the middle. Decent rating also, but expected a little bit more goals from him.
    Last Chipmunk, Theodor.

    12 goals and 3 assists. Strange to see him have more goals and way less assists than Alvin. 
    Our players scored us a solid 69 points. Combined with the bonus it gives us 100 points. 
    Probably easy to beat if you pick a better team which plays European games but I had fun doing it with these names in the 3. Liga!
    Thanks for reading and I just noticed we can go back to the MLS. Want to go for a Western team this time but suggestions are welcome! Already checked, no Drago's to pick namewise 😁

    The Final Update
    In the last update, our main man Vanja successfully passed the 250 goals-mark, and agreed to sign a 5 years contract extension while also agree to play on after that, which means that he can at least play for another 5 years. This update will cover the next 2 seasons, in which we try to hit the 300 goals-mark.
    Competitions
    Vanja's Goals
    Here's how Vanja look like at the end of the season, at the age of 37.

    Still some decent goalie attributes, but a horrible pace.

    His worst season as a goalie, conceding 83, which his terrible pace may be the main factor.
    Challenge Summary

    He registered his best ever season scoring 26 goals to bring his total goals up to 305, overtaking @BatiGoal's 272 goals scored by his Bazoer in A Defender's Story. Good news for Bati is that Vanja's record won't be included in the Ronald Koeman's Challenge, so he remain top of that leaderboard for now. 😉
    Anyway, although Vanja still can play for at least 4 more seasons, I guessed it's time to end this career here. So 305 is my final score for the challenge. Thanks for everyone following this career, and as always comments are appreciated. 😀

    UCL performance

    Actually I have no idea who this Angel Torres is. The scorer should be Fabio if I wasn’t mistaken.

    No glitches in this match as we went through to the quater final. The next match scorer will be the best one though 👇

    It’s 24 that scores for us in the first leg of UCL quater final lol.

    They got it wrong again as this is my Portugal squad scoring for me?! We went to the semi after all. Are we going to get to the final?

    Tough match. Philippe Coutinho scored an absolute beauty to stun 10 men Porto. The stadium went silence the next 5 minutes. Continue reading 👇

    Fabio and Ander performance:

    9 goals for him in the international.

    62 for club. 62 + 9 = 71 goals this season 🔥

    Still not progressing very well.

    His tally went down from last year. Really needs to step up more next year.

    Battle #4... 
     
    Bati Vs Kun Aguero
    Beijing Guoan - (China)

     
    The trend we're seeing in China these recent years is that most top division teams have a squad largely consisting of Chinese nationals with the best players coming from outside the country, playing mostly in the attacking line. This due to the limit on foreigners these teams are allowed to have in their squads. Unsurprisingly, the top leading goal scorers in the CSL are by far foreigners with the Israeli Zahavi leading the dance in 2019. You're going to put a stop to this trend. Beijing Guoan have an outstanding assist man in Renato Augusto and very promising Chinese front men: Dabao, Yuning, Ziming and Wen. Buy or select your finest two from the squad for this mini Double Trouble in China. 
    Your job: Form a DT of Chinese origin. The duo to score most goals wins. If tied most assists wins. 
     
    Chinese Player 1

    TM-like skills always get my preference. And towards the end of the season his Shooting and Movement got the needed bumps. 
    Chinese Player 2

    Yuning is really decent. At the end he's got good greens and overall set of skills to show for. Very consistent player this one. 
    Transfers Out

    Bakambu & Co not needed for this challenge. Give me the money instead. 
    Transfers In

    With the sales + existing funds we used nearly every drop of coins to strengthen all lines except the front. New GK, 3 new Defs and a few good midfield men to assist the Chinese Duo. 
    Formation: 3-5-2

    This formation did very well in Portugal and now with minor tweaks in China too. I might post the tactics in full for anyone to fiddle with. Just to see if it works across the leagues, as well as to keep my tradition going of posting at least one tactic per FMM series. 
    FA Super Cup win

    AFC CL win

    Best Game - 5 goals combined

    League Table

    An easy run to the title. It's an easy league to win. 
    League Top Scorers

    Chinese Duo topping the board. 
    Manager Profile

    Player 1

    Dong ends his run with 36 gls. As a TM he provided a few extra assists. 
    Player 2

    Zhang ends his on 43. Did decent as a Poacher and could've reached higher if it wasn't for minor injuries. 
    I think I did well, but it's an easy league to score in and Kun Aguero's got the experience playing in China. So I think he did well too. Not feeling too confident about this one tbh. Let's hope I'm wrong and I go 3-1 up. 
    Challenge score = 79
    If Kun Aguero scores 79 as well we'll look at the assists for the tie-breaker. Under 79 it's a point for FC BatiGoal, over 79 it's one for Vibe United. 
    It's your turn @Kun Aguero. Remember, there's no deadline so post whenever you're done. Take your time and in the meantime I'll start preparing my battle vs JustM1kePlays.

    Results
    The Chinese Duo
    #1 - Zhang Yuning

    The same player used by Batigoal, Zhang Yuning's already in the team, and play as my Target Man. Here's how he looks like at the end of the challenge, some decent stats, I'm focusing training in his Aerial hoping he get some extra goals from corners, but only managed to rise from 13 to 14.
    #2 - Wu Lei

    Player 2 is Wu Lei from Espanyol, the best Chinese player currently, with the perfect attributes for a Poacher. Got him for 19m, was surprised that he actually agree to move from La Liga to CSL though.
    Transfers

    2 big money departures including Bakambu and Renato Augusto. Newcastle came with a 30m bid for Renato Augusto, which I can't reject.


    Lots of incoming players, with the biggest being the main man Wu Lei. Lanzini came in from West Ham to replace Renato Augusto, 2 new wing-backs from Torino, 1 RW, 1 DMC, 2 Center Backs and several loans as backup.
    Tactics

    I'm using a modified tactic from the one used in my Turkish Triple Threat, leaving only 2 strikers upfront. A very offensive tactic with the "Overload" mentality, and only 1 CB.
    League

    An easy league win, scoring 120 goals while conceding 38.
    FA Cup

    AFC Champions League

    2 big Final win to complete the treble.
    Top Scorers

    The Chinese duo occupied first 2 places in Scoring chart, scoring a combined 64 goals.
    Notable Matches
    Zhang Yuning's Goals

    34 goals and some extra assists from the Target Man.
    Wu Lei's Goals

    An incredible performance from Wu Lei, 75 goals + 19 assists from him. 
    A combined of 109 from the Chinese duo, which wins Vibe United a point to bring it back to all evens again.
    However it seems like @BatiGoal didn't play the CWC matches, so it's more fair if I took away the goals scored from the 3 games in CWC. 
    -4 goals from the CWC matches, so a total of 105 goals from the duo.
    Team Goals & Assists

    Manuel Lanzini scored a lot from AMC position.

    Luciano Narsingh got the most assists playing as a RW.

    An average of 3.59 GpG while conceding a lot as well.
    So a point for Vibe United, bringing it to 2-2. Good luck in the next one @JustM1kePlays. 
    Thanks for reading. 😀

    Kanegan reacted to Dagion in Dagion goes to the movies: Alvin and the chipmunks   
    Proper update time.. As we traveled to America it was time for a classic: the Godfather! Haven't seen it myself, tried it once and found it to be a bit boring. I know, shoot me. Maybe in the future I'll watch it properly.
    Goal of the challenge is to sign an experienced midfielder/forward as your Don Vito, and a young Italian striker as your Michael at one of the two New York clubs in the MLS. You have to defeat other territories or cities by having a better score over the course of 1 game (against Western Conference teams), 2 games (Eastern conference games) or even 3 games (some teams you meet again in the playoffs).
    Every won territory is 10 points, drawn territory 0 points and lost territory -10 points. Bonus points for goals Michael scores and assists Don Vito gives.
    We opted for New York City FC. The transfer budget is comparable to New York Red Bulls but we only needed a mid table finish. Players interested in Red Bulls were better though..
    First our Michael: Elia Petrelli. Promising youngster from Juventus, but needs some development. A bit too much actually for a 1 season challenge in hindsight.

    Second our Don Vito: Luca Cigarini. Not really that great players available so I went for a central midfielder. Passing and creativity seems good and his physical stats aren't too bad.
    Managing in the MLS was new for me. You start in January and I think that, being earlier than other leagues, makes it difficult to sell players. Also a reason I picked who I picked, they weren't expensive.
    Other negatives of the MLS are the games during international matches. At some point I missed a bunch of players. To add to that I found it pretty hard to manage the fitness, while most games took place a few days apart.
    The league itself however was pretty fun, looked quite open to me. Also the fact you play Western once and Eastern twice was a welcome change of the usual play each opponent twice.
    How did we do?

    Well, good actually. Guess being a club owned by Man City or whatever the construction is makes you a bit.. annoying?
    We were first in the league at that moment and form was good. Don't know. Didn't get much better either.
    Fixture list:
    How did Michael and Don Vito do? Cigarini was solid, he got some assists and even a few goals. Petrelli did a little bit better in the end but his development wasn't fast enough. He looks quite promising at the end of the season though.


    Cigarini looks solid, but the decline is imminent I think.


    So that's 8 points from Michael and 15 from Don Vito. Not that good I guess. Calculating the won (or lost) territories I did in Excel, because it's a pain in the ass.

    We won the Eastern Conference and you qualify for the semifinals if that's the case. We played Montreal Impact in the semis, getting us an extra territory we otherwise would have drawn.
    Eastern finals we played against Philadelphia which didn't matter that much I guess. Finals we won against LAFC! But if we hadn't played them we would have still had their territory?
    All in all, bit of calculating but we managed to win 19, draw 2 and lose 2. 170 points, not bad? Don't know for sure, but add our Italian stallion bonus points and our grand total is 193 points.
    It's a decent score for this challenge, and interesting to see the MLS for the first time. Not my favourite one, but still more fun than Goal 2 in my opinion.
    If anyone has any request of screenshots during these movies just let me know. Usually I have the save available until I'm two movies further. Thanks for reading and I guess it's time to find me some chipmunks!
