    Season Sixteen
    This is it, surely the penultimate season of this career. We are nearly there, 104 goals from Mbappé will see him smash the 1.5K mark that was set when this challenge was born. Two more seasons should be enough.
    Transfers
    Outgoing:
    Just the two outgoing transfers, and one of them is my favourite player of this save except for Alaba,Havertz and Mbappé. I’m talking about my Gareth Bale regen John Wilmot who to look at is absolutely fantastic with 20’s all over the shop. Unfortunately as you can see below he is way too injury prone.


    To sell him for his £160m face value is a bonus and I just hope it doesn’t come and bite us on the backside! 

    Incoming:
    That left us needing a left winger, and I got one in the shape of a Brazilian from Juventus, not as good as Wilmot but he’s certainly got the right tools in his locker to do a job.

     
    Competitions:
    Trophée des Champions- Beat Lille 3-2, Mbappé grabbing a hatrick European Super Cup - Beat Dortmund 2-0 Club World Cup - Beat River Plate 4-1, Mbappé scoring a brace Coupe de la Ligue - Beat Lille 2-1 after being behind for most of the match French Cup - Beat Lorient 1-0, Mbappé scoring the winner League - Easy peasy lemon squeezy Champions League - Totally outclassed by a superb Spurs side 4-2. Gutting  
    Manager Profile & Season History:

     
    Kylian Mbappé 1K Challenge:
    He’s definitely on the decline as he loses two points of pace whilst his stamina and strength drop to the blue. His technical and mental attributes are still world class so them alone should see him over the line. In the end 88 goals in 55 matches is a great return for a striker of his age and leaves us needing only 16 goals to beat this challenge!

    Challenge Totals:
    Games: 886
    Goals: 1,484
     
    Kai Havertz Assists Challenge:
    Now this man has dropped out of nowhere! A couple of injuries this year including a two month spell out at one point, sees his attributes shot! Drops to low blues in physical and his technical has also taken a huge hit! How did it reflect on his performances though? 38 assists in 49 games is what he mustered, and all things considered I’m happy with that. He’s now passed the 500 goals mark too which is excellent.

    Challenge Totals:
    Games: 916
    Goals: 512
    Assists: 786
     
    Triple Threat Assists Challenge:
    Finally, David Alaba. The 40 year old left back who just keeps on giving. His attributes are gone, with his physical ones into single figures. Whilst his technicals have also taken a blow. He did however manage to play more games this year and also managed more assists. Brilliant 😁 12 assists and 6 yellow cards in total for this incredible player.

    Challenge Totals:
    Alaba - 183/51 ✅
    Havertz - 786/162 ✅
    Mbappé- 203/102 ✅
    Total: 1,172
    Alaba Yellow Cards: 187

    Thanks @Rob2017. I didn’t think Ancelotti would ever go and if he did, Conte somehow always managed to stay above me in the rankings so I thought he’d get it. 
    Strange as I don’t really enjoy international management on FMM .... but I’ll take one for the team to count those goals from now on 😜

    MY FINAL SEASON
    As i post this 'my final update' i'm feeling a little deflated but also having a huge sense of accomplishment.
    Before i get into why let me firstly show who my final convert would be.
    Please welcome....

    Iwobi is a player i had my eye on since my 2nd go but for some reason i shyed away.
    He was 31 when i eventually decided to take the plunge.
    COMPETITIONS.

    I gave myself a little challenge this season to try and get that 100 goal difference and i was soo close. Pleased with the unbeaten season though.
     

    A superb win over the Brazilians which really should of heralded more goals.
     

    Braga are a bit of a bogie side for me so winning the Final against them was good.
     

    A close game here that needed a penalty shootout for us to win.
     

    A strange game against the a Turks having been 3 up we let claw it back in side a suicidal 9 mins.
     

    I just wish we were more clinical here.😐
     
    The champions Cup run ended at the semi-final stage as a solid home win over Juve looked like we would go through but some how we just couldnt score in the away leg and Juve managed 2.



    Overall i'm pleased with my trophy haul.
    THE MAN
    So back to Iwobi...i'm glad i chose him but i wish i had done it sooner as his age was a concern but i went for it anyway.
    A solid start to the season saw him amass 56 by Jan 1st and i honestly thought he is on for a 100 finish here or as close as i can get.
    To be honest i just wanted to beat my best total of 92.
    Unfortunately a lull at the end of the season and his flat out refusal to retrain meant he could only reach 81!!
    I was gutted.

    Those assists too....i have to say one thing i have noticed team work in a striker has no bearing on his amount of goals scored imo. That is in my tactic anyway. 😕
     
    FINAL WORDS
    It has been an absolute pleasure to have been asked by @Rob2017 & @Foxy to take part in this challenge. I was by no means anywhere near as good on the EME as these two but i've found myself pushed and i was able to create something that has done reasonably well.
    Thanks to everyone who has commented it has helped my new found love for the EME and im going to be pushing on with it more in 19 and hopefully doing more complex challenges.
    😉

    !!BRING IT HOME ROB!!

    The Vibe Shield Semi-Final @Foxy vs @Rob2017 Result
    Welcome all to the first Semi-Final result reveal!  Both Foxy and Rob went to the beautiful city of Milan to try and bring them back to glory.
    Transfers
    If it comes down to managing your wallet then this round would have been won by Foxy as he just spend 190 compaired to Rob who really through around his weight with a spend of 372 mil   Is this a sign of further results? Did Foxy go for mediocre players? And as you can expect with the difference in the spent money they didn't have one player in common  
    The Cup's
    Cups cups cups, who doesn't like a good Cup drama? One mistake and your out, and drop out to early, and you might see your competitor run away with a nice point advantage. So let's see if our modest spender (are you Dutch Foxy? Sitting on your money) made Milan proud?
    The Italian Cup
    And the simple answer is ... 

    NO as Foxy brought Milan all the way too the final, but loses it in the 120th minute... Yes... he lost the game in the last minute of the game... I can only imagine it being as gutting as getting a 1000 yard screamer from KDB ( @Ashez)  against and lose your H2H   
    The big question, could Rob take advantage of this laps in performance?

    Well that's a clear awnser, YES, money buys results apparently.
    So after the first cup Rob has a small lead over Foxy.
    Italian Cup points
    Foxy: 9 points
    Rob2017: 12 points
    The Euro Cup
    Nobody screwed up here in the group phase (yeah, i'm surprised as well  ) and both reached the final! And allthough i asked Foxy for his save i couldn't find anything wrong with his result. But seriously, who knew this club? And they are in the final?  

    Anyways Foxy managed to win the Euro cup game (just) against a club i still find hard to believe they exist. Now allll the pressure is at Rob. Can he hold on too his lead?

    Yeah he can, although he had a rough start. Luckily Messi Jr scores in the 92th minute to give Rob full points!
    Euro Cup points
    Foxy: 24 points
    Rob2017: 24 points
    Foxy 33 points vs Rob 36 points giving Rob a lead of just 3 points!
    The League
    The all important league! If you do it right the basis of your win lies here! So let's see how big spender Rob did?

    Well this is like Real Madrid back in the day, spending money doesn't bring you results  Coming in 2nd in the league, and seriously what's up with the 85 goals against Rob?  That being said Rob managed to get 110 points from the league.
    Over to our resident Fox! Can he do better? Or is he going to lose with just 3,2 or 1 point difference
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
     

    Boom Foxy doesn;t take any prisoners! Winning the league and having a substantial goal difference Foxy nets himself a nice 144 points! Blowing Rob out of the water Who says you need to spend money to get a result? Maybe buy a better keeper @Rob2017?
    League points
    Foxy: 144
    Rob2017: 110
    Semi-Final Result 
    Foxy takes the win as he beats a Rob with a score of 177 points versus 146 points from Rob. Congrats to @Foxy for being the first Vibe Shield Finalist! And great fight Rob! Better luck next time!

    Since that post I've added two new ideas to my folder lmao, okay one was old that I forgot to make a note of so only one is truly new but my point stands :p. The one I forgot to take a note of is one I have high hopes for but it involves a lot of planning and leg work so I'm iffy on it, I mentioned it to @Foxy months ago and he was intrigued though. It's one of those concepts that's a little out there and I'm not sure how much it'll appeal to Vibe but in theory I think I'd enjoy it, it's easy to like an idea on paper though. 
    The grind catching up with you hey, for what it's worth I'm jealous as my longest save on 2018 has been like 4/5 seasons lol. I've really struggled with longer saves, mainly getting my stupid ideas to work and I've kinda fallen off the goal scoring bandwagon in recent years, after doing 15 odd 1k challenges they lose their appeal haha.

    The response to the opening post was excellent and pretty surprising but I'm just happy you guys will get on board with daft ideas. Regarding the Bonfire Night challenge I have to admit at this point I've failed to create anything decent, but at least I did create a pretty fun looking Saint Andrews Day one. Anyway that's enough chit chat so let's crack on with what you're here for.

    A pretty tasty starting eleven in my opinion which I hope will see mine and @Foxy's Gegenpress tactic utilised to it's fullest.

    Season 6
    So here is little update how did my season 6 went.
    Our first game was against Monaco. We did easly beat them 4-2, with that red card their side helping us out. Mbappe grabs hattrick. Boom start.

    Our second game didnt go so good. We narrowly lost 3-2 to Benfica. Mbappe still grabbed brace. Also unlucky with those two unallowed goals.

    Cwc was routine win as allways. Mbappe getting brace and Asensio also on scoreboard.

    What a thriller, one of greatest ive had on this career. We lose to 10 men nice and play down 4-2 lead. I call this fmm. 

    What a game ! We beat Lyon in 10 goal game and Mbappe nets amasing 4 goals !

    Again Real Madrid. I have knocked them out 5 years in row. 3 in finals, two in quaters. And once close match and once again Goreztka hittingg 30 yard screamer to take home title. 

    League ead easy, no losses again and my best season at this save with 107 goals scored.
    Now onto challenges
    1. 1000 goal challenge

    Mbappe adds 82 goals his name, could been more but again limited by injuries. Really hoping for injury free next season and hope to get atleaat 90 goals.
    Challenge total: 442/1000
    2. Calender year scoring
    Mbappe netted 37 goals in firat half of season.
    At second half he gets 39 goals, which makes it total 77 goals in year. Another fail in this challenge.
    3. Assist challenge

    Asensio once again with huge season. What a beast. Small drop in Havertz and small raise in Lemar. Diasapointed with both of them. 
    Challenge total
    Asensio: 222
    Havertz: 125
    Lemar: 112
    Total: 459/1500
    4. Triple threat assist

    Challenge total
    Mbappe: 67/102
    Asensio: 222/162
    Henrichs: 66/51
    This challenge will be completed soon as Mbappe hits 102 target, only matter of time.
    Overall another good season with some crazy scores and quietly reaching to all our targets.

    URz reacted to S4NCH0 in Why "Liga MX" would be a good addition   
    Why "Liga MX" would be a good addition

    With FMM19 just around the corner, speculation over which leagues should be added hasn't ceased. Names like China, Greece, Argentina, and Mexico have been mentioned. And it is Mexico's "Liga MX" in which I will be focusing today, since I am Mexican and love this league. 
    Context
    The League Format
    Composed of 18 teams from various cities around the country, the league format is very different to what european league fans are used to. The League is made up of two separate tournaments for every calendar year: Apertura and Clausura (loosely translated as Opening and Closing respectively) both with the same 6 month duration and value. They winners of each tournament then face in the Super Cup MX, which is a new trophy with not much value (it is played usually by B teams and barely televised). 
    The cup "Copa MX" is also played during the regular season, with the inclusion of Second Division teams and the exclusion of CONCACAF Champions League participants. 
    Apertura and Clausura Formats
    As I've said, they both have the same format so I will explain them as one.
    The league has 18 teams and therefore each team plays a total of 17 matches. After the regular season is over, the first 8 placed teams qualify for a knockout phase known as liguilla (which may translate to little league). The liguilla phase games are decided according to the position each team finished the league in, so 1st vs 8th, 2nd vs 7th, 3rd vs 6th and 4th vs 5th. The games are played in two separate legs with the best placed team playing at home for the second leg. In case of a tied aggregate score the first sorting rule is away goals followed by best position on the table. 
    The winner is decided in a 2 leg final. The winners of both tournaments, together with the runner-ups win the right to play the CONCACAF Champions League.
    Copa MX 
    Played in two phases, group stages and knockout stages. Played twice every calendar year. The teams are randomly sorted into 8 groups of 3. After a two legs Round Robin system the first two places of each group go into the knockout stage, which consists of only 1 game played in the best placed team's stadium. 
    Relegation
    Here is were things get really complicated. After the end of every calendar year 1 team is demoted to the second division and 1 team is promoted into the first division. Or at least most of the times. First, the relegation process works as a coefficient. Points from the last 6 First Division short tournaments (3 Clausura and 3 Apertura) are added together and divided by the number of matches played. This coefficient is then used to rank the teams from highest to lowest, at the end of each calendar year the team placed 18th in the coefficient table (even if the team had ended 1st in the regular table) is demoted into the second tier. But things might get even more complicated. The most recent team to be promoted won't, obviously, have stats for the last 4 tournaments, so when calculating his coefficient at the end of the next 2 tournaments, he won't have as many games played as the other 17 teams, thus making his coefficient way more volatile. Also, as the second division of Mexican soccer lacks the economical and structural infrastructure, measurements have been taken to prevent unfit teams from playing in the first division. So the Mexican Football federation gives certification just to teams they think have the conditions to make it in the First Division. As a result, if the team who won promotion from the second to the first division by sport means, might loose their right to the spot on court. 
    If the team that achieves promotion is tagged as unfit, then the relegated First Division team has the chance to buy their place in the division back by paying 5 million dollars to the league and another 2 million dollars to the "un-promoted" team. If they don't have the financial means or don't want to retain the spot, the "certified" team with the most points in the Second Division takes their place. 
    Now, why is LIGA MX a good addition?
    CONCACAF:
    After the addition of MLS for the first time in FMM18, the table is set for another CONCACAF league to be added to the game. The Champions League format is already there, the North American database has been expanded to never seen before levels and the national teams from north american countries are now available. Adding Liga Mx, means adding the strongest league in North America and it would be without doubt very fun to manage along with the MLS. Mexican teams have always been the better teams in CONCACAF and in recent year they have one every single North American Champions League.
    Historical Teams:
    With teams like Chivas de Guadalajara, America, Pumas and Cruz Azul, we would get the chance to manage teams packed with history and great players. Players like Hugo Sanchez (5 times Spanish pichichi winner), Chicharito Hernandez or Guillermo Ochoa have all emerged from this teams. Added to them, teams like Atlas or Pachuca have one of the brightest Youth Acdemies of the continent with players Hirving "Chucky" Lozano, Andres Guardado and Rafael Marquez all coming from their youth ranks. Some interesting challenges come to mind, can you win the league with Chivas following their only-mexican policy? or can you win Atlas some silverware after a drought of more than 60 years?
    Good Foreigner Players
    Liga Mx was graced with players like Ronaldinho and Emilio Butrageño, some year ago. Now, the foreigner players don't come for their retirement, they sometimes even come in their prime. Players like Andre Pierre Gignac, Leandro Ulloa, Jeremy Menez, Nicolas Castillo, Enner Valencia and many others have arrived in Mexico to play their best, giving the league a higher stature among the rival Continental competitions. 
    Wonderkids
    In recent years, Liga MX has been exporting amazing youth to mainly European Leagues. Players like Giovani Dos Santos, Carlos Vela, Javier Hernandez, Hirving Lozano, Raul Jimenez and Erick Gutierrez have all packed their bags and crossed the Atlantic. Currently, players like Victor Guzman, Diego Lainez, Jose Angel Abella or Rodolfo Pizarro together with tenths of other promising players, await the opportunity to fight for a chance in european football. 
     
    Conclusion
    In conclusion, adding the Liga Mx, would mean excitement, new formats to explore into,wonderkids and tons of fun. And while you are at it you may even try to reignite Carlos Fierro's spark (looking at you @Ashez). Hope it is added.

    Update 6 - 2023 & 2024
    So, with the bug hitting us we had to only rely on friendlies.
     
    2023 Friendlies
    Some big wins in the friendlies. Beating the Teranga Lions 4-1 and then the mighty France 3-2 even with an out of form Maclaren meant our future was looking bright. Oikonomidis performed exceptionally well against France snatching a brace. The end of year friendly against the same opposition Senegal, was a much tighter affair as we shared the honors 2-2.
     
    World Cup Qualifiers - Part 1
    The world cup qualifiers were an easy affair and just a chance to get Maclaren up to speed and he did not disappoint, scoring 8 goals in 4 matches including his 10th international hattrick. He missed the last 2 qualifiers due to injuries again.
     
    World Cup Qualifiers - Part 2 (2024)
    We wrapped up the first qualifying stage with Maclaren continuing his scoring form notching up another hattrick and 6 goals in 2 matches.
     
    Friendlies 2024
    The friendlies were a mixed affair. The win against Ecuador was good while Bosnia's Almir Seferovic, the new hitman for At. Madrid put in a crackling performance to defeat us and then we conceded a late goal to lose against Switzerland. 
     
    World Cup Qualifiers Stage 2 (2024 Part 3)
    We were clubbed with the major Middle east nations and North Korea with Iran and Qatar the strongest rivals in the group.  Maclaren played only 2 matches before another 5 month long injury derailed his season. I may have to find a new candidate for my challenge as Maclaren is getting injured almost every 3 months.

    Ashez & The Hammer Movie Monsters
    After the creation of the Gegenpress tactic I found myself completely in love with the game again, however after browsing the short challenges on Vibe none really caught my attention (apart from one which will be posted after this). With that in mind I decided to create a nice and simple one season challenge for myself and since it was the start of October when I had these feelings I decided a Halloween based save could be fun, after all a challenge is just an excuse to play. 
    Focusing the challenge on nationalities was the easiest concept but it's the one I decided to use, with that in mind I looked up the origins of the original Hammer Movie Monsters being Dracula, Frankenstein's Monster and of course the Mummy. Dracula was easy as everyone knows he's from Transylvania/Romania and the Mummy was also easily decided as Egyptian but Frankensein's monster took some digging. Eventually I discovered Frankenstein was born in Italy but moved to Switzerland, however his monster was actually created in Germany so I consider him German. (Another save concept I had was the monster being a German striker and Frankenstein being an Italian, point for every assist for the monster type deal but I wanted a more unique save, feel free to take the idea though). 
    With my three targeted nationalities in hand I was in need of a starting club and I had two requirements, a team that fitted the theme and someone I wanted to play as. I also added a third restriction however as I knew the temptation of Salah would be strong so I decided to be a club where he wouldn't be a viable option. Thankfully this decision didn't take long at all as the perfect club came to mind quickly.......
    The Club Of Choice

    Who else could I be than Valencia with that big ole bat! Now I had a club it was time to get to business and sign up my movie monsters! 
    Frankenstein's Monster Version 1

    The whole point of this save was to use players I wouldn't usually discover which lead to Kittel. I decided to sign my shadow striker first as it was the position I had the most options for while it's also a hard position to buy for. Kittel appeared a nice little find as his stats were good and he could develop nicely, however I soon discovered his trick or treat. 
    Trick Or Treat

    Unfortunately Kittel picked up a knock almost instantly which is when I discovered this could be a long term issue. As this is a one season save I don't have time for such issues so he was transfer listed and I returned to the market. 
    Frankenstein's Monster Version 2

    Didavi was now my monster and he's a nice step up from my original decision. If I remember correctly I knew where my budget was at this point so I had the luxury of being able to spend more on the purchase. Stat wise he looks perfect so hopefully he works out. I do like the irony that it's Frankenstein's monster that caused me the issues with the role being made by two players, oh FMM. 
    The Mummy

    Egyptian wise you have hardly any attacking options, especially when Salah was ruled out so Sobhi joins the team. I've used him before I think but never as a first team option so I'm looking forward to seeing what we can bring to the table. I was very tempted by one playing in Belgium who's name escapes me but I ended up with Sobhi either way. 
    Dracula

    With the shadow striker and winger signed it was time to look for an ISF and i was satisfied with my purchase. I've never used Ivan before but he looks a wonderful talent with his pace and decent heading and striking ability. I'll admit I also did appreciate my attacking line up would be Ivan-Didavi-Sobhi.....I dunno what a Sobhi is but I want one :p. 
    Transfers
    The Points System
    League Points +/- GD + Goals & Assists Of The Monsters. 
    I'm not going to post this as a challenge thread unless there is a demand for it as it was made for myself, however if others want to get into the Halloween spirit and have their own attempt I will whip up a challenge thread. That is partly why I'm posting this before my other challenge to give you guys the option, if I posted this closer to Halloween who'd care with 2019 around the corner lol. 
    Anyway that brings my opening post to an end, hopefully you can get behind the concept and I look forward to any comments it receives, as always thank you for viewing. The January update will be posted in the coming days.
