    End Of The Journey (Part 2)
    65 goals left with 5 years in Shan Huanhuan's contract, can he hit the 1K, before both him and me retire from the game?
    Season 1/5
    Season 2/5
    Season 3/5
    Season 4/5
    Final Words
    That's it, 29 seasons to hit the 1k (I guess that's a new record for most season took to hit 1k 😂), 2 more seasons to play until his retirement and the end of the full 30 seasons. Almost decided to give up when he struggled to hit even 10 goals a season, but a change in formation which leads to a 40 goals season as a 38 years old reignited the hope, and those few young Chinese strikers graduated from youth academy did have me regaining motivation in this save, and finally he managed to hit the 1k, took 10 seasons for the first 500 and another 20 seasons for the last 500. Thanks for all the support and comments throughout the challenge, and stay tuned for the final update of his final 2 seasons.

    This could actually be a great Challenge! Get the most out of nothing with Almere City!
    Personally i would try and go with 3-4-3 - the Dutch way ! Louis Van Gall would call it Horny Football maybe 😂

    You gotta be crazy to make crazy 🤣
    If you're talking about full attack mode with 5 up front, that's still very much possible. The solid defence with just 1 or 2 at the back has been tougher this year and haven't been able to nail one. 3 CBs is what I use now and they're great.

    Side Challenge 2
    The team's on its way to score 1000 goals in as little time as possible, and we've done a pretty good job in the one season we've played. It's team goals in all competitions, leagues, cups, Europe etc. I was aiming for 200gls/season, which I've achieved with good teams. That number would get this challenge completed in 5 seasons. We came a few goals short.
    Progress: 197/1000
     
    Side Challenge 1
    For this toughie I need to hit 9 scorelines and as mentioned before, I'm not counting on coming close in the first few seasons. The team will need to go through a handful transfer windows before it can produce the high scorelines needed for this challenge on a more regular basis. So we managed to get the first 6 but the remaining 3 with clean sheets were beyond our capacity. Maybe, big maybe, next season.
    1-0 ✔️ 2-0 ✔️ 3-0 ✔️ 4-0 ✔️ 5-0 ✔️ 6-0 ✔️ 7-0 ❌ 8-0 ❌ 9-0 ❌  Challenge Failed! 
     
    Main Challenge - Player 2: Christian "The Curveball" Nissen
    After my visit to Scotland to talk Salim Kouider-Aïssa "The Sleeper" into joining Porto for half a season, it was time look for Amateur Player #2. A good friend of mine mentioned a Danish club with crazy supporters singing beer songs in the rain so I had to have a player from that club. Aarhus Fremad offered me a deal I couldn't refuse for star player Christian "The Curveball" Nissen. He allegedly earned that nickname for his countless shots on goal that 9 out 10 times resulted in a throw-in for the opposition. What an amateur!

    Brutally honest, my first thoughts were Wow, this is an amateur gem. Yes, stamina is a big worry but we can cope with it if we plan things properly. His Target Man like attributes look very decent in these lower regions. I couldn't pass on this guy with the risk of not having him around next season. Blue Shooting, Movement, Decisions AND green Aerial, Strength are jackpot colors for the players I'm in search for. 

    Shockingly enough all 3 match screenshots are losses, but compared to "The Sleeper" this fellow did perform vs strong opponents. Much to my surprise and delight of course. A loss vs Benfica but aggregate win. Those are the sweetest. 

    Another loss but "The Curveball" helped us to get the goals needed to secure a win on away gls vs Chelsea. He's by far our weakest player in the squad including our ball boys, the tea ladies, hell even the janitor sports a finer pass, but he's trying his best.

    The most painful loss of the season but realistically speaking we did have some luck making the final. This is probably a little more than we deserved, finishing as runners-up. And again how many amateur players can actually say they scored in a Champions League Final? 

    The same amount of games as "The Sleeper" got but "The Curveball" guy netted 6 goals more. My aim is to get at least 20+ gls / ½ season with these untalented disaster players so I'm more than happy. Let's hope the next one is just as hardworking as the previous one. With the summer window up ahead I'm going to spend a fair amount of time looking for players to strengthen the team and of course decide who my next amateur lad is going to be. One thing's certain, I needn't worry about any rival bidders 😂

    1000 Goals With A Bunch Of Amateurs
     
    Leagues: 🇵🇹 - 🇩🇰 - 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 - 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
    Featured club: FC Porto
    This is going to be my first long-term commitment for FMM20. It's a pretty simple concept and I intend to keep the updates interesting but simple as well. The main reason I went ahead with this idea is because there's already a large chunk of careers out there featuring wonderkids, so I'd like to offer something a little different. I'm going to embark on a journey starring non-wonderkids. Amateurs! A bunch of 'em. I've done a few short-term saves and tests up to this point and I have to say the formation I'm going to use for this club is good. I have faith this is going to work out, but if I'm wrong and it doesn't it'll be an unforgettable experience nonetheless. 
     
    Main Challenge: This year's FMM counts 48 amateur clubs and at some point I'm going to approach all 48 - provided their amateur status remains unchanged throughout this career - and find any one player at the club to chip in with goals for a grand minimum of 1000. A player only lasts till the next transfer window, giving me little to no time to develop his non-existent skills. So that's 2 players/season making this career last up to 24 seasons. It's a stretch but I'm more than ready for the ride. The high turnover rate of amateur players is one of the things that excites me very much.
     
    Side Challenge 1: @samhardy's Gündogan's Victory Challenge. I've failed this one before, but I think now is the perfect time to finally drag it over the finishline. How long it'll take me I have no idea. But I assure you this time it WILL get done. Objective is to star a German midfielder in my starting 11 and win 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9-0 in a single season. 
     
    Side Challenge 2: @Foxy's The Managers 1000 Goals Challenge. Simple concept here as well. Have your team(s) score exactly 1000 goals in as few games as possible. This one's definitely not a matter of 'if' but rather 'when'.

    All these clubs are going to provide me with 1 player for half a season before I jump to the next one. Their goals count towards this career's total and the above list will be updated with the players and their scored goals every ½ season. To complete the challenge I've set for myself I will need to score 20 odd gls/player in half a season x48. Do they have enough stamina to play full games? Can I be competitive despite their abysmal conversion rate? I'm throwing myself into the unknown here so let's just hope I don't embarrass myself again and pray we count 1000 goals by the end of it.
    Thanks big for the views and all comments welcome.

    All these clubs are going to provide me with 1 player for half a season before I jump to the next one. Their goals count towards this career's total and the above list will be updated with the players and their scored goals every ½ season. To complete the challenge I've set for myself I will need to score 20 odd gls/player in half a season x48. Do they have enough stamina to play full games? Can I be competitive despite their abysmal conversion rate? I'm throwing myself into the unknown here so let's just hope I don't embarrass myself again and pray we count 1000 goals by the end of it.

    1000 Goals With A Bunch Of Amateurs
     
    Leagues: 🇵🇹 - 🇩🇰 - 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 - 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
    Featured club: FC Porto
    This is going to be my first long-term commitment for FMM20. It's a pretty simple concept and I intend to keep the updates interesting but simple as well. The main reason I went ahead with this idea is because there's already a large chunk of careers out there featuring wonderkids, so I'd like to offer something a little different. I'm going to embark on a journey starring non-wonderkids. Amateurs! A bunch of 'em. I've done a few short-term saves and tests up to this point and I have to say the formation I'm going to use for this club is good. I have faith this is going to work out, but if I'm wrong and it doesn't it'll be an unforgettable experience nonetheless. 
     
    Main Challenge: This year's FMM counts 48 amateur clubs and at some point I'm going to approach all 48 - provided their amateur status remains unchanged throughout this career - and find any one player at the club to chip in with goals for a grand minimum of 1000. A player only lasts till the next transfer window, giving me little to no time to develop his non-existent skills. So that's 2 players/season making this career last up to 24 seasons. It's a stretch but I'm more than ready for the ride. The high turnover rate of amateur players is one of the things that excites me very much.
     
    Side Challenge 1: @samhardy's Gündogan's Victory Challenge. I've failed this one before, but I think now is the perfect time to finally drag it over the finishline. How long it'll take me I have no idea. But I assure you this time it WILL get done. Objective is to star a German midfielder in my starting 11 and win 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9-0 in a single season. 
     
    Side Challenge 2: @Foxy's The Managers 1000 Goals Challenge. Simple concept here as well. Have your team(s) score exactly 1000 goals in as few games as possible. This one's definitely not a matter of 'if' but rather 'when'.

    BatiGoal reacted to billy2shots in 24 Hours with the EME   
    Time to put this to bed. 
    So I may have gone over my self stipulated time limit by a few hours.....
    Sorry for the image quality, my tablet isn’t working with imgur anymore so photos  were taken of screenshots. 
     
    This experiment was to get me hooked on the EME and to do that I had to realistically like creating tactics on it and a successful one at that. For 4 days I hammered it, the tablet came everywhere with me and I played at every opportunity 

     
    Stupidly i I made the mistake of trying to create a tactic that made lots of clear cut chances whilst limiting the opposition to minimal efforts. Crazy I know, we all know by now that’s not how SI rolls. 

     

    For years we were told that those huge number of chances on the OME that failed to find the back of the net ‘weren’t really chances’ and the EME’s clear cut chances were more realistic. I’m calling balls4it on this as well. So clear cut chances mean little so how is one supposed to create a tactic? Simple, from that point I just went on match results and tried to block out the shot statistics. Easier said than done when the AI can use black magic and score from zero shots on target.
    Must not look billy. It’s not real!


     
    So trying to ignore the statistics I kept repeating SI’s promise ‘the game doesn’t know who the human player is’ this must be just bad luck. I will get results like this sometime. Yeah right, I get that sh1t regularly. 
    Once I learned to accept my fate from time to time, I could concentrate on that other major EME positive. Realistic formations with the AI using players correctly. Let’s see how this goes.....

    Lookman absolutely leathal and tearing me a new one.
    No surprise because look at his pace, obviously killing me on the counter  

    Oh wait.....
     

     
    of course 8 Aerial and 9 Strength, he’s a target man FLOL
    Get the feck out right now. 
     
    Summary. 
    The EME has not won me over in the slightest. All those negative OME traits that were supposed to be correctly reflected on the EME with SI and some fans gushing about realism are nonsense in my humble opinion. 
    Better? No. Just different. 
    I will continue with the EME, again not because it’s better but the difference makes it feel almost like a new game so that has to be a plus, possibly the only plus I have found. 
    As for success for creating my own tactic.  I religiously stuck with my favourite formation but couldn’t ring enough out of it to complete all the goal based challenges here.
     I did need to step away from my pre planned choice but I’m pleased to say I kept my traditional 3 man forward line which includes two wide strikers. No offence to anyone but I really wanted to stay clear of the INFs in the attacking mid position as they seem to be very OP. They also steal the majority of goals away from your main striker. Not ideal for 1ks  
    No doubt about it, I would have more success if I gave up on my long-standing 3 spaced forwards and this is by no means a great tactic but I’m happy with the results  

     
    what about the front 3


     
    It will do I suppose.
    Time to start a long term career thread to keep the motivation going.
