    Nice try 😁
    Btw, lots of talk on how nice these Nigerian shirts are. No offense, but I'm not a fan. Looks like something my grandmother would've made for her foul-mouthed grandkids.

    Hi guys,
    First of all, massive apologies for the lack of updates here. When I start careers I finish them and this one is no different. Towards the last stage of this career I got really busy with all sorts of things in my life and we're now almost 4 months further and I'd rather close this officially than to have another crack at it. To be very honest, I have little motivation right now to attempt to better my stage 5 score so I've decided to keep the score as is and hopefully it gets people excited to have a crack at it as well and try to beat me. For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, don't blame you, here's a refresher..
    Pick an EPL team and..
    Stage One - score 50+ EPL goals with a Championship player Stage Two - score 50+ EPL goals with a League One player Stage Three - score 50+ EPL goals with a League Two player Stage Four - score 50+ EPL goals with a Vanarama National player Stage Five - score 50+ EPL goals with a Vanarama North/South player  
    And my final tally ends at..
    Stage One - score 50+ EPL goals with a Championship player (53 goals) Stage Two - score 50+ EPL goals with a League One player (55 goals) Stage Three - score 50+ EPL goals with a League Two player (52 goals) Stage Four - score 50+ EPL goals with a Vanarama National player (56 goals) Stage Five - score 50+ EPL goals with a Vanarama North/South player (20 goals)  
    Final score: 236
    (of course I want my name on the leaderboard 😋)
     
    Thanks for following everyone. A beatable score and I hope I see someone have a go at it before long. It's one of my most enjoyable careers I've done this years, so I hope it inspires a few to go down the tiers of the English leagues and put themselves to the test with those less talented lot.
    The End 😎

    BatiGoal reacted to samhardy in Sam v Nucleus: A H2H Series   
    Challenge Two - International No-Hopers
    So in the first challenge we saw myself take an early lead after a narrow victory in the North vs South challenge. However this one as briefly explained just a couple of posts above is a completely different test.
    We both take charge of a national team of our choice and whoever gets furthest into the World Cup wins. The same round of exit means we go into a shootout and whoever loses first loses the challenge.
    Here is @Nucleus with his update:
    So Sam has talked you through the challenge we had to undertake in this second frame, and after careful consideration of which national team I would represent I decided that Portugal would be my best bet due to them already topping the qualifying group with only four games left to play and they’ve got some decent players valued at under £1m. So I was confident of overcoming the first hurdle and qualify for the World Cup Finals.

    And that we did, with a two point cushion to spare. It came down to avoiding defeat against Switzerland in the final game to qualify and we did just that with a draw.
    Our next stop was the World Cup Finals and this was the squad that would hopefully lead me to glory!

    A who’s who of Portuguese football! I think Danny is the only one I’ve heard of. We were put in a group consisting of Iran, Algeria & current world champions Germany. So a fairly kind group considering the Germans haven’t got any players in the game, although their shadow players are immense.
    Our first match saw us take on Iran and it made for a tense affair as they dominated the play but Yazalde pops up with a hatrick to kick start our tournament with a vital win.

    Next up was Algeria and this tie on paper is harder than the Iran match, and once again it proved to be a tense affair but it swings 4-3 in our favour and we are all of a sudden in prime posistion to qualify.

    Our final group game would put us against the world champions Germany, a win would see us top the group and be granted an ‘easier’ tie in the next round.

    Win we did, and quite comfortably in the end as they fail to register a single shot on target and we breeze through to the last 16.

    ”Should be granted an easier tie” came back to bite me, as I was drawn against the 2014 World Cup runners-up Argentina. Would Messi and company be my final stop on this journey?

    The answer is yes. A brace by Higuain and a Paulo Dybala strike sees us eliminated at the last 16 stage and puts an end to our hopes of World Cup glory. I can only hope that Sam hasn’t bettered my result!
    My update
    A last 16 exit for my opponent which on paper shouldn't be too hard to beat however this is definitely a trickier challenge than initially meets the eye.
    My nation of choice were Italy and upon taking charge I was appalled to notice that they were second in the qualifying group when I took over, already well behind Spain so straight away we faced the prospect of a play-off to the World Cup! Not helped by results like this:

    Eventually we came 2nd... Surely I at least made it to the tournament?


    Just about made it. Here was the squad I used for qualifying:

    I was faced with a relatively straightforward group in the tournament which was a relief, we'd be locking horns with Egypt, Iran and hosts Russia. I feel like the Uruguay of this FMM World Cup.
    Here was the squad:

    We overcame Egypt in a nervy first game, followed by a much more comfortable success over Iran.


    However we then surrendered a two goal lead against the Russians meaning we sadly finished the group in second and received a tough last 16 draw against Spain.

    Now we hit some controversy. Myself and Nucleus were playing this simultaneously and since I was halfway through the challenge I requested not to see his results, so instead of letting me see the results in our PM thread he "accidentally" plastered his result all over a group PM I am in with a few other members. This completely threw me off guard and was 90% the reason I unluckily failed to get past Spain. The other 10% was SI not letting me put 10 behind the ball after scoring as when I did I clicked tactics however Spain had equalised before my tactics screen loaded. I take no blame for this defeat.

    So Nucleus swanned into the shootout emotions in check whereas I was left raging after what had just occurred 
    The Shootout
    Simple really, we continued after the WC with the same restrictions but playing the matches in a shootout style. If one of us won and the other drew, then it would be over at the first hurdle.
    I won the toss and asked Nucleus to go first. His fixtures were as follows:
    H) Italy
    A) Iceland
    A) Germany
    Whereas mine...
    H) Uruguay
    A) Holland
    A) Croatia
    He beat Italy fairly convincingly meaning I had to follow suit against Uruguay.

    Could I keep the shootout going??

    2 goals in two minutes keeps this show on the road!! Me to play first this time...

    Not a bad draw on paper but frustrating not to get a goal after playing most of the second half against 10 men. A game point for Nucleus, he will tie this series at 1-1 with victory against Iceland.

    And he converted! We have a level game after 2 challenges.
     
    So what an exciting one that was! After its conclusion though we are level and it's all to play for going into challenge 3.

    It all seemed so simple at the end of last season:
    Literally days later:


    So... It's over... 7 measly goals to go.... If ever there was a time I was tempted to reload, it was right then.
     
    Final Total
    Here's the final total. I won't repeat the screenshots from above. It's all right there in the previous post.
    39 years old Total Club Goals 1309 ITN Goals   184 Totals 1493  
    The Future
    Colidio has already boarded his plane and headed back home to Argentina. He'll always be welcome in Glasgow (one side of it anyway), but he's not the sentimental type. He's made his decision and moved on.
    As for me... I'm not sure. I've been playing this career for 6 months and it's going to leave a hole... That said, I've very busy right now and I'm a bit burnt out. Don't expect another long career from me for a while.
    I may finally jump into FMM 2018 and start a general team building career with Oxford United (that's been my plan for a while), but I probably won't write about that. Or I may have a break for a while...
    Either way, I'll be back eventually, but I'll see you round on the forums in the meantime! Thanks for reading!

    Challenge One - North vs South
    Hello Vibe and welcome to the first update of this H2H career between myself and @samhardy. For our first challenge we will be taking on this @Ashez inspired one which you can find here
    As I won the coin toss I got to pick which region I wanted to represent and I hesitantly decided to go for the north of England and more specifically, Manchester United. I picked them mainly due to the fact I know the side inside and out and was hoping that knowledge alone would see me across the line. 
    With some decent English players already at the club such as Rashford, Lingard & Shaw I had youth on my side, so I went out raiding the northern clubs for some much needed experience to add to this:


    Out went all the non English players, barring De Gea whom I couldn’t sell but he was quickly demoted to the reserves and left there to rot 😢



    So there we have my English side, i reluctantly paid £60m for Henderson who would also unfortunately captain the side, other than that it was a case of raiding Everton, Leicester & Burnley
    Now let’s have a look how the new look Manchester United got on:

    Cup games don’t matter in this challenge so the reserves were quickly despatched in the domestic cups, although they did go on and win the Champions League! Losing just the once in the league with a semi-decent goal difference I was quietly confident I’d done enough to take the win.

    Full Fixture List:








    Manager Profile & Squad Nationalities


    Points:
    League Points: 105
    GD: 61
    Rival Team Points: 38
    Total: 204
    A decent total, and one that should take something special to beat! I’ll now pass you over to our hooligan Black Cat @samhardy for a rundown of his season: 
    So @Nucleus has already explained the challenge we took on here and after he won the coin toss and elected for the North I felt that the only team that made any sense were the team that half the England national team gets their players from which is of course Tottenham.
    Great players already at the club that are eligible for this challege such as Kane, Alli, Dier and the full-backs so I probably didn't need to do as much business as my opponent but let's see what occurred anyway:



    All areas covered and whilst the South doesn't present as many options I was still pleased with what I managed to bring in here and the squad looked good 
    Let's have a look at how the squad got on.

    It's only the league that matters for this challenge so the kids went out in the cups yet we still got to a final. The league went very well and it would be rude to ask for more although dropping points against Bournemouth and Brighton whilst giving away a lead at City was frustrating. Overall a solid return and a good GD.

    Fixture List:



    Manager Profile & Squad Information:

    Solid enough!
    Appearances:

    Both my keepers were injured at one point near the end of the season so a shadow player had to go in goal! Not a comfortable feeling when the opposition are attacking 
    Goals:

    A very good spread and Kane only played league matches and was out for about a month.
    Assits:

    Very well spread out again.
    Points:
    League Points - 104
    GD - 69
    Rival Team Points - 38
    Total Points - 211
    A good total for this first challenge, a few frustrating moments but couldn't have gone much better and hopefully it's enough to beat Nucleus and take the first win in this challenge.
     
    It was enough to beat me too! Only just mind, and what a very close matchup that proved to be between myself and Sam, but as it stands he does go 1-0 up and goes within 3 of winning this H2H

    Credit to @Foxy for the graphic and congratulations to Sam on winning the first challenge, I’ve definitely got my work cut out if I’m to get back into this H2H.

    HELLO EVERYONE AND WELCOME TO THE 2018 WORLD CUP FINAL.
    It has been a fantastic tournament in which many of the worlds top players failed to shine.
    That didn't deter the rest on view as we witnessed some fantastic games.
    Today though is our main focus as England take on the mighty Spain.
    Both teams escaped their respective groups with 100% record, but England sprung the greatest surprise by beating Brazil in the semi final.
    Woody's prematch press conference was a nervy one as the England boss touched on the subject of the players missing out.
    "We have a few injuries to contend with, Kane is only 85% and Alli and Henderson picked up yellows against Brazil and will miss the game through suspension. I am sure the lads taken their place will do me proud but this is going to be a tough game".
    Woody obviously playing Englands chances down there but this is a World Cup Final where anything can happen.
    Todays teams are:

    1st half...
    England won the toss and started us off...
    2nd Half....
    Extra Time 1st Half...
    England make 2 changes bringing on Sterling for Kane and Dier for Loftus-Cheek.
    2nd Half...
