    Geordiekrispy's UK Goal Challenge mk3 - Scotland

    Stage 2 - Scotland - part 3 So, I'm back after a month of not really playing and getting a bit bored... I eventually managed to complete this second leg of the UK Goal challenge... It took me 4 seasons in the Scottish Premiership, I was going to give up if I didn't manage to do it this season. So I'm just going to do the cliff notes for each season. Season 3 (1st in the Premiership) - 2021/22 We won the league, and Kevin did a decent enough job of getting goals, but not quite enough. Fixtures: Transfers: Season 4 (2nd in the Premiership) - 2022/23 Again, we won the league, but Kevin got a couple of injuries and struggled to find form. Fixtures: Transfers: Season 5 (3rd in the Premiership) - 2023/24 Again, we won the league (running away with it to be honest), and Kevin finally managed to score enough goals. All the way through the season he was averaging 1.5 a game until he hit a patch when he didn't score I thought the challenge was dead in the water, then he managed to score 2 a game for two months in a row to snatch a victory from the jaws of defeat, having to score in the final game to go over the required 52 goals! Fixtures: Transfers: I genuinely think it was getting the better quality of AMC and MC on loan, in Gomes and Vidal that made the difference, plus some of the other purchases have really improved my team, youngsters like de Souza and Mnoga really improved and are now worth £10m+ So now I just need to figure out how I can take the drop down to the part time Danske Bank Premiership after being offered the England job the previous summer, and constantly being offered EPL jobs... Other than getting sacked or resigning even then I'm not sure they'll take a "chance" on me as I'm too good for them... Edit: I've just remembered I need to put scores on for each stage: Stage 1 - Wales: 53 points Stage 2 - Scotland: 53 points Total: 106 points

    Stage 2 - Scotland - part 2 Ok, so the hard part of getting a job is over, now I've got an off season and full season to get the right players in to help my chosen striker score those goals! Transfers: Not too many in as the squad is pretty large and needed some trimming, but I did raid Cardiff Met Uni for a MC and GK as quite frankly they were the best players and positions I needed strengthening in. In: Out: My chosen striker is the great and legendary Kevin Nesbit, who had just signed for Raith the season before but appeared to be the best of the lot I had available and looked promising: This is him after the full season in the Championship, as you can see he's not too shabby and helped score a load of goals. Which in turn helped up win the league: So now I need to try and prepare the team for the premier league and get Kevin scoring against, slightly, higher quality opponents... Another promotions for the Neil Warnock Challenge too @Foxy, should bring me up to 6 total (Curzon Ashton, 4 with AFC Telford and now Raith).

    Stage 2 - Scotland I finally managed to land a job in bonny Scotland, it is with the mighty Raith Rovers with 2 games to play: I then go on to win those first 2 games: But it doesn't let me get into the playoffs, this year...

    Stage 1 - Wales - Adendum Ok I have quite frankly been lazy and not been bothering myself to get on to the computer to post updates, so these are going to be short and sweet(ish). I spent pretty much another entire season at Cardiff Met Uni whilst applying for every SPL job that appeared, plus every LC job too. I made the mistake very early in the season of turning down the Airdrie job (LC) and regretted it since as it was offered out of the blue, but I thought I could get a better job, they ended up getting to the playoffs so I really should have taken it, ah well that's on my and my own thinking I was worthy of a better job! So, the final season in Wales was another stormer, not quite as profilic for Thomas, but still helped us win the league: This is where I ended up leaving Cardiff, with only a 1 game to play and the league well and truly in the bag: Results: My loyalty took a hammering this season though: Signings: And now on to pastures new...

    Stage 1 - Wales Ok, so I as in my previous attempts I'm going with Cardiff Met Uni as they have the best training facilities and I'm going to need all the help I can get. Unfortunately, I can't use this challenge to complete @BatiGoal's Amateur challenge as to give myself the best bet of securing as good a job in Scotland and England I'm starting as world class, which is a shame as quite honestly, I think it's easy to win the league with the Cardiff Met Uni Squad. As I stated in my opening post, I'm using a Welshman to try and complete this leg of the challenge, my player in question is the Bolton reject (I mean that in the nicest way)... Jamie Thomas At 21 he's young enough that he should improve during the season and he's got a decent shooting and physical attributes already, so hopefully he can keep up with the rigours of being a long striker in my formation. Let's just say that he started off well, winning the Welsh Young player of the year awards in his first season... He definitely knew how to find the net too... The JD Welsh Premier League is one of those strange leagues that splits into 2 towards the end of the season and you only play the teams at your end of the table. When the split happened (with 10 games left to go) Jamie had to score 11 goals in 10 games to beat the record of 47 goals in the league in a season... Was it a tough ask? If he got injured he'd be out of the running until next season... So... How did he do? He absolutely smashed it! Ended up scoring 15 goals in 10 games and finished the season with a grand total of 53 goals in the league So we can safely say that we won the league and got into the Champions League qualification stages: Fixtures So now begins the next step... Getting a job in the Scottish leagues...
  6. So after a another failed challenge in my 1k from the bottom up, I decided to give @BatiGoal's UK Goal Challenge (now my UK Goal Challenge v2.0) another go as I fancied something a little less strenuous... Obviously I mistakenly decided to do it after updating to the Feb database patch... So I had no idea what was going to happen in terms of stamina and conditioning. I thought surely I can get 50ish goals in the league as it works out to just under 1.5 goals per game for all leagues and being able to rest my striker for the cup games means I might be able to keep him in good enough condition... But we'll see... The general idea is break the goal scoring record of the various UK leagues in numerical order, so Wales first, then Scotland, then N.Ireland, then England. My twist on it is that I have to do it using that nationality of player, so no just signing any random wonderkid or known international goal fiend to smash it, they've got to be that nationality! I have a feeling the jump to the Scottish Premier league will be interesting, depending on who gets sacked. But the big challenge will be getting a job at an English Premier League side after going to N.Ireland... I'm not limiting myself to entering the top league if I can't get a job in it, so getting a team promoted from the Scottish and/or English Championship is probably an easier option, plus it gives me more opportunity to get a good team built for my goal challenge in the top league.
  7. Wow, great start to this 1k. Always knew that Mirror had goals in him in the right set up.
  8. I think I wasn't quite on the ball with the minimum fee release clauses on the contacts of the more important players. Also, if I'd picked a player that I was able to get the national job for it would have helped with the goals tally and possibly the reputation with the player in question.
  9. The sticky end of the Pole Ok, I'm going to not put as much info into this post as it's the last one for this save as it had to end... Season 3- Sky Bet League Two The League Fixtures Jan Los Season 4 - Sky Bet League One The League Fixtures Jan Los Season 5 - Championship This was the start of the end unfortunately... After battling the past couple of seasons to keep Jan, he was eventually poached just after the winter transfer window and I didn't see the point in continuing as I could guarantee even with my very good regens from my academy I wasn't going to be able to afford to buy him back even if he wanted to come back. League Fixtures Jan Los I also got offered the England job, declined it and then the gave it back to Southgate... So all in all, not too bad not too good... Challenge Results Season 1 - 51 Season 2 - 69 Season 3 - 40 Season 4 - 59 Season 5 - 35 254/1000 So a quarter of the way there in 4 and a half seasons, if he continued to score at that rate it would take 16 seasons to complete... So really I needed to hit 100 goals after the first few seasons... Annoyingly he was doing well in the Rob Earnshaw challenge, having scored a hat trick in every competition apart from the FA Cup. I think that the lack of the Poland job coming up would have helped, but not a massive amount. Overall my tactics seem to prove that you can play gegen pressing in the lower leagues, and if Ukraine are anything to go by, internationally, but you need better players. But they leave something to be desired in terms of getting those big season numbers for a 1k challenge.
  10. Love the idea of this career. I'm going to have to rack my brains for something interesting to do for my next career now...
  11. Season 2 - The Polish imperative You'll have to excuse the lack of updates as life kind of got in the way, and it's really hard to try and get time to post a season update with a toddler, a baby, a busy job and GoT to catch up on. Right... So... Let's see if I can build on a pretty decent season last season! Transfers Not much to speak of, just replacing the people who left and loaning out the youth graduates. Competitions Vanarama National League Yup, won that at a fairly easy rate: FA Cup Got knocked out in the 2nd round by Scunthorpe FA Trophy Won with a bit of a battle against Leyton Orient Fixtures Ukraine As I mentioned above, the Ukraine FA decided to offer me the job, and I thought why not... My first challenge was the qualifying for the Euro's.. no you know, no pressure... With that out of the way it was just the actual Euro's to play... Now due to the way FMM updates, the group stage was in this season and the playoffs and finals were in the next one, and some how I've managed to lose those screenshots... So... I only lost to Italy, so not too bad, with some really good hammerings of Wales and Croatia in there too! Second Round was vs Switzerland Was a bit twitchy, but got there in the end. Next was Germany in the Quarter Final Not a single problem here! Let's see if we can keep the momentum going? In the Semi's we came up against number 1 ranked France Nope, they were just too good for us. But Besedin did manage to grab the golden boot. The actual challenge: Ok so back to the actual reason for this career, a certain Mr Jan Los... He again did ok, a slight improvement in stats: And a slightly better goals return: But people were starting to notice him and my other players, so it's going to be tough to keep hold of him/them. Challenge Results so far Season 1 - 51 Season 2 - 69 120/1000 This could be a long save unless he starts to hit a lot bigger numbers (which will start causing more issues with keeping him at Telford!). Hat-Trick Tally Vanarama National League North - Yes (a fair few, forgot to screenshot them) Vanarama National League - Yes League 2 League 1 Championship Premier League FA Cup - Yep (does 5 goals in one game count? :P) League Cup FA Trophy - Yes (but forgot to screenshot them) International/World Cup On a personal note I got offered the Newcastle job too...
  12. Great career and fantastic end total.

    Looking forward to this first week, it's definitely going to be interesting...
  14. Thanks, I'm happy with hitting 50 goals after he was injured for 10 days, twice and he seems to have built up his stamina a bit more this season. Fingers crossed for an even better season!
  15. I'm not finished Season 2 yet, but I've got a problem... it's a nice problem though.... I've been offered the Ukraine national job, out of the blue, not applied for or anything... Given that it's January and the next game is in March, I'm really not sure if I should take it, I've been keeping an eye out for the Poland job but that seems pretty safe at the minute. Do I take the job to get my rating up and have a better chance of getting the Poland job if it comes up? Or decline it and concentrate on the league?
