    Aaron Thornton got a reaction from Titjes in (S4) Aaron Attempts The Fabled No. 10.   
    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.

    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 🤷‍♂️ 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

    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

    Ronaldo is also set as my assistant manager so it makes sense for the orange box to be empty cause he'd be talking about himself if you look at the top of the coach report page, he's writing the reports, funny he ranks himself as our best forward 😂 typical Ronny

    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.

    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 £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? 😂 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.

    Not much to say here, don’t know why I sighed Foden and Harper tbh 😁
    Results

    Not a bad season but we were not at it early doors and a change in a few things to my tactic from February on really pushed us on except for Schalke having our pants down 😁
    Rhian Brewster



    Premier League Played/Scored Season 1 - 37/18
    Premier League Played/Scored Season 2 - 38-31
    Premier League Played/Scored Season 3 -38-32

    Premier League Played/Scored Season 5 - 38/43
    Premier League Played/Scored Season 6- 38/44
    Premier League Played/Scored Season 7 - 33-45
    Total Premier League Played/Scored - 260/256
    Premier League Goals Left To Score - 5
    Well you know the change in tactic found a big amount of goals go to Brewster but he only got the plus 1 in his Aerial in March and it made a difference, we went in to the final two league games with him on 45 so just 5 to go. But he didn’t score in either of the last games🙈

    Season 8
    We needed 5 goals this season and we managed it in the first games.

    So yeah it took me 263 games to get there, it was an enjoyable one and I think I will attempt again, mostly down to the fact that Brewster plateaued right from the beginning and just couldn’t get to the point where he should be.
    Over to you @Aaron Thornton, good luck to you, I’ve enjoyed the challenge against you 😁

    Another stellar year from Brewster, still very little growth boggles my mind, he was one of the Wonder kids who got downgraded after the winter update but I didn't think they downgraded him that much and I've already phoned Dominic and told him to sabotage the dressing room and he said hell do his best so keep your eye on him 😂

    My kid has this game, World soccer championship, and you can't save when you want, the game goes and save each time so you can't reload... that will solve a big issue about cheating in the challenges. 

     
    Is simple, you have 3 slots for career and that's it, the phones nowadays are powerful enough to handle the read/write each passing day so you don't need to save.
