  1. Whoever is blame, let's do a Mourinho and blame the player πŸ˜‚ But in all seriousness I think he would have done a lot better without the tampering, but we'll never know
  2. Season 3: (Italy) I've chosen Nicolo Zaniolo for this season, one of the best wonder kids on the game and extremely versatile, for us though there's only one position he plays. Here's how he done: Transfers: In: Out: Competitions: Nicolo Zaniolo: 45 goals and 19 assists give Zaniolo a score of 64. A big dip compared to last year, I tampered with the tactic and as you can see it didn't go to plan, still a decent total put up by Nicolo. (Goals/Assists/Games) Jeff Hendrick: 47/33/44=80 Paul Pogba: 50/33/44=83 Nicolo Zaniolo: 45/19/43=64 Total: 227. Thanks for reading and till next time, πŸ‘‹
  3. Great start mate, Ryan's tearing it up and hes developing nicely
  4. Cheers mate, but I thought they downgrade players when they go to yous πŸ˜‰
  5. Season 2: (France) After a good start with Hendrick, my expectations in Season 2 were much higher considering the calibre of players we had to choose from, for this season I've chosen Paul Pogba, there probably isn't a more divisive player out there IRL but in FMM terms he is top drawer, here's how we done: Transfers: In: Out: Competitions: Paul Pogba: 50 goals and 33 assists in 44 games, gives us 83 points for the season, an increase on last year by 3 points, I don't know if this shows Pogba underperformed or is Jeff Hendrick really that good πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ still taking the season at face value, Pogba done really well. (Goals/Assists/Games) Jeff Hendrick: 47/33/44=80 Paul Pogba: 50/33/44=83 Total: 163 Thanks for reading, any comments are welcome.
  6. Good luck mate, he has a point to prove after you didn't pick him to emulate Alan Shearer
  7. Thanks mate, yeah I havent used them much either especially not built a team around one but that's the beauty of this challenge, completely changes how you think about your tactic Cheers Rob Thanks mate and I'd have to agree with you mate, we all bang on about how attributes are vital, but Hendrick who's only got the green of the Irish flag to his name goes and plays a season like that, I need to have a look at his traits etc. Cause maybe they hold the key to how good he performs. Cheers Dandy he was a joy.
  8. I had this challenge on my to-do list for a while and I finally got around to trying it, created by @Ian. It's a very interesting challenge and the jist of the challenge (if you dont already know) is to buy a new No. 10 (attacking midfielder) every season for seven seasons, manage Juventus (I will never refer to them as Zebre) and get said player to score and assist as many goals as possible each season. Season 1: (Ireland) The first season requires an Irish player and after loading the Irish leagues (to bolster my choices) and Italy of course, I looked at the options and quite frankly they're all terrible, so I ended up going with the boring option of Jeff Hendrick. With that said here's how he done: Transfers: In: Out: A rebuild of sorts in Season 1, some experienced signings mixed with a blend of youth. VVD is the marquee signing, Depay, Origi and McBurnie add depth to the front two, with the former also capable of rotating with Hendrick, Kondogbia and Gibbs-White give me some more midfield options with the latter being a player for the future, Morgan Rogers also a player for the future, but can do a job now if required. Gaya, Grimaldo and Vrsaljko sure up the WM spots in the team. Competitions: We win the league, 8 points clear of Inter, scoring 107 goals We win the CL, beating B. Dortmund 4-0 in the final with Hendrick scoring a hat trick We win the Supercoppa, 2-1 vs Lazio with Hendrick netting a penalty We lost to Atalanta on away goals in the TIM Cup A decent trophy haul in year 1, with the CL final being my personal favourite game, shutting down an exciting Dortmund attack. Jeff Hendrick: A great year for Hendrick with 47 goals and 33 assists, giving him a total score of 80, a nice start to the challenge. I never expected such an average player to perform so well but he surprised me big time. (Goals/Assists/Games) Jeff Hendrick: 47/33/44=80 Total: 80 Thanks for reading.
  9. Good luck mate and be prepared for Ronaldos physicals to plummet πŸ˜‚
  10. Thanks mate yeah he was fantastic, I definitely had the advantage with player choices, Calvert lewin was already pretty established but the hype around him IRL right now pulled me into using him, anyway I really enjoyed battling with you, good luck with your new challenge.
  11. 230 games, 261 goals with Dominic Calvert-Lewin, really fun challenge, recommend it πŸ‘
  12. Season 7: Let's get into this: A bit of good news to start the season, a new stadium next season and who else was I going to honour the ground with but our new Alan Shearer, not the most creative name but I kept the pride of the names structure, just changing one name to another. Would we ever get to play at our new ground? We'll have to wait and see. Transfers: In: My first ever experience with Facundo Pellistri and he was sensational, arriving from Villarreal for Β£96 mil. The other two signings were regens and would a bit part role at the club. Out: McNeil leaves after a few unremarkable seasons, we offload the last of the Longstaff brothers, Sean jetted off to Austria, Angelino slowing dropped down the pecking order at LWB and eventually left this year, Bentaleb was a terrific servant throughout the last 7 years, bought for peanuts at the start of Season 1. Competitions: We win the league, 26 points clear of Liverpool and Man United (Man City's dominance of England is long gone now) We beat Real Madrid 3-1 in the CWC We lost the Community Shield on penalties to Man United after a pretty dull 90 minutes PSG were far too strong for us the Parc Des Princes, beating us 3-0 and we could only manage a 2-2 draw at home (losing 5-3 on aggregate) Arsenal put an end to our EFL Cup hopes, beating us 2-1 at the Emirates Chelsea end our FA Cup hoeps this time, beating us 1-0 with us having the better game but not converting Just two trophies this year, some very disappointing performances in the cups, but we brought home some silverware, so can't be too harsh on them. DCL: This was his end of season form, scoring 13 goals in the last 8 PL games, he played out of skin to try to wrap up the challenge this season, but the question remains, did he manage it? AbsoBLOODYlutley!!! 47 Goals in 38 Games, that goal against Chelsea on the final day of the season wrapped up the challenge, he was on 34 goals after 30 games, then its almost like he knew he was emulating the great Alan Shearer and took it to a new level for the final 8 games, brilliant stuff Dominic. Love it! Games: 230 Goals: 261 Goals needed: 0 So happy with how that final season ended, when he got that goal vs Chelsea, I celebrated out loud and my housemate asked me What the f*ck is wrong with you? πŸ˜‚ He will never understand as he doesn't play FMM no matter how many times I recommend he tries it. Big thanks to @RichD for the battle, extremely close throughout and I thoroughly enjoyed it. @Jsavfc could you add this to the leader board please, I couldn't quite manage to topple the leader board, missing out by 4 games but had a blast doing it.
  13. Cracking season there mate, notching 45 goals, if he hadn't of missed 5 PL games you'd of mistn likely wrapped it up in Season 7, great final score. I'll upload myne now.
  14. Singleton because his defensive attributes are extremely good for the level as a fullback, Harriman because he is far more well rounded as a Fullback and Pinto because he's younger, much more creative, decent dribbler, good passer of the ball and has good positioning the 17 passing on Turrado would be tempting but creativity can be just as important as the passing stat so I'd go Pinto. @George Traistă may have different reasons for picking the same players and that's the beauty of FMM
