    gunnersaur reacted to FuddledFox in Foxy’s United Nations - Part 2   
    All divisions in England. I could have had more nations with other leagues added but 147 seemed enough for this.
     
    Cheers lads.

    gunnersaur reacted to FuddledFox in Foxy’s United Nations - Part 2   
    Season 1 - Part 1

    I don’t think it will come as much surprise that the early part of this career is dominated by some of the big name players. In many ways this first update can be split into two parts separated by a tactic change and the beginning of seeing some of the more random names start to score later on.
    I want to get a good number of attacking players on the pitch at one time so I can play a mixture of shitters that need to complete there nation and good players who can help win the match.
    With that in mind I started with this tactic which has at least 5 attacking players in the front two lines and then even the AP and IWB’s will push forwards. This is quite a tried and tested set up for me that has yielded good results and plenty of goals in the past.

     
    It’s hard to argue too much with the start here as well but the lost games to Chelsea and Inter were a big concern for me as we hardly laid a glove on them and that’s what made me rethink going into the Man Utd match but we will come to that later.


     
    These early matches are good for getting some nations ticked off as it seems most goals resulted in another completed country. I have put the profile of more well known players under spoilers and then the more random guys I will show unspoilt.
    Match 1 v Liverpool
    This was a good start with two countries done although it could have been better of Jesus had scored his penalty.
    Colombia 🇨🇴 - Famous for its large haired 90’s footballers and coffee along with some other stimulants - Juan Cuadrado ✅

    Belgium 🇧🇪- Famous for its beer, chocolate and being the home of Big @Titjes - Kevin de Bruyne ✅

     
    Match 2 v Spurs
    Jesus did get the job done here and he is now into the reserves so that Ederson can come back into the first team and be my number 1. It was a productive game all round with both Gundogan and Sterling scoring as well.
    Brazil 🇧🇷- Famous for beaches, rainforests and the beautiful game - Gabriel Jesus ✅
    Germany 🇩🇪 - The land of 🍺, sausages and fast cars - Ilkay Gündgan ✅
     
    England 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 - Famous for somehow thinking we are both the best and worst in the world at football - Raheem Sterling ✅
     


     
    Match 4 v Leicester 
    Sterling got another goal here but that is of no consequence now so the important goal was Agüero’s.
    Argentina 🇦🇷- Famous for 🥩 and lots of it - Sergio Agüero ✅


    Match 5
    Sterling was at it again and it’s hard to be mad at him because we need to win games as well but it might be helpful if he would pass more often. That said he got injured after this game and hasn’t played since.
    Dominican Republic 🇩🇴- The Dominican Republic makes up over half of the Caribbean island of Hispaniola with the rest being the nation of Haiti. - Mariano ✅

     
    Match 8 v Man Utd
    This was my first game with a new tactic which I will show underneath. We also saw our first goalscorer who is less well known.
    Eritrea 🇪🇷- Eritrea is an African nation on the Red Sea coast south of Sudan and north of Ethiopia. - Nebay Haile

     
    Zambia 🇿🇲- Zambia is one of Africa’s most popular countries for people to go on safari and is home to the Victoria Falls - Patson “Wonderkid” Daka ✅
     
     

     
    It was after this game I changed to a 4-2-4 which I have used a lot in the last three editions of FMM and I always enjoy because it’s such a loose and free scoring tactic. The games are often entertaining and if your team is good you more often than not come out as the winner by the end of the game.

     
    The change lead to 10 wins in a row including the Man Utd game although we perhaps weren’t always as free scoring as I hoped we would be in every game. 

     
    Match 9 v Zenit
    I had signed Petagna to play TM as I find he can be very creative in that role and allow others to score but he got two himself in this game. I was delighted see Sunil score in this game as he is one of the older players I needed to get a goal from before they retire.
    India 🇮🇳- More famous for its cricket than its football - Sunil Chhetri ✅

     
    Italy 🇮🇹- The home of great food - Andrea Petagna ✅

     
    Algeria 🇩🇿- Algeria has the 9th highest population in Africa - Riyad Mahrez ✅

     
     
    Match 11 v Djurgardens
    With 6 goals scored I would have hoped for more countries ticked off but I had to settle for just 3. I could have brought Çalhanoglu off after he got his first goal which might have been sensible but never mind.
    Turkey 🇹🇷- Not home to the birds of the same name - Hakan Calhanoglu ✅

    France 🇫🇷- The nation that gave the world FIFA, UEFA and the European Cup - Aymeric Laporte ✅
     
    Libya 🇱🇾- Libya is surprisingly big and comes in as the 16th largest country in the world - Mohamed Bettamer ✅

     

     
     
    Match 13 v Everton
    The handy thing with CB’s is that the good ones can just be played in there right position and let them get on with defending safe in the knowledge that they will almost certainly get on the end of a corner at some point and score as both Laporte and Dias have done now.
    Portugal 🇵🇹- They make some cracking custard tarts - Ruben Dias ✅

     
     
    Match 14 v Djurgarden
    We weren’t as free scoring in the away game against the Swedes but I still ticked off two countries during the 2-0 win.
    Niger 🇳🇪- 80% of the country is covered in the Saharan Desert with most of the population living in the far south. - Ali Mohamed ✅

     
    Honduras 🇭🇳- Pre Spanish conquest Honduras was part of the Mayan empire - Rigoberto Rivas ✅

     
     

     
    Match 17 v Leeds
    After a couple of close matches where we won but didn’t tick off any countries this was a good match to finish the update as two more countries were completed.
    Martinique 🇲🇶- Despite being in the Caribbean Martinique is part of France and is therefore the outermost region of the European Union - Wesley Jobello ✅

     
    Kazakhstan 🇰🇿 - Kazakhstan is the largest landlocked country on Earth - Baqtiiar Zainutdinov ✅

     

     
    After all those games we sit top of the league and are also well set to progress in the Champions League as well.


    I would like to complete this challenge in 147 or less games if possible so that I average 1 nation or better being completed each game played. So far I am slightly ahead of that rate.
    Games Played so Far - 17
    Nations Ticked Off so Far - 20
    Nations Completed per Match - 1.17 countries per game

    This update was longer than I actually planned it to be but I played further ahead and decided I would post the whole lot so if you have got this far well done. It’s likely that future updates won’t be as long as this one.
    Thanks for reading

    For some bizarre reason I decided to start a new one season save with Brighton.  A bit of wanting to experiment with a back 3 after some other posts.
    Bissouma free kicks - wow!  3 goals in 5 games so far

    Hey gunnersaur - you ripped through that challenge and smashed it.
    Maybe have to wait a lot longer until my results.  I have been lying awake at night trying to think of what players I would use though.

    Going to finish the wedding challenge and hopefully make a start this week.
