The Future of the Save
I had intended this save to be a test of my tactics ready for a TT but if truth be told I finished this save about a week or so ago and since then I have tried about 4 different ideas for a TT and nothing has stuck. I have been getting the goals I need from the trios I have tried but the saves just haven’t “turned me on”.
Writing up the final update for Cochrane it gave me the desire to load this save up and again and play it as I think 4 seasons in things are starting to get interesting with the team in Europe as we get more competitive.
I aim to complete three challenges in this save.
The challenges are.
The Assists Triple Threat
I will keep the players I will be using for this to myself for now simply because they could change over the next few seasons as the squad gets better although the striker will definitely be Hamilton as he is well on his way with getting the 103 assists needed for the striker part of the challenge.
The second challenge is.
The Manager 1kc
This is a challenge I created where we need to get the clubs we manage 1000 goals as quickly as possible and with the best goal difference as well. I am already over half way to 1000 goals so I should get to the magic total but I hope I can improve my current GD (352 atm) and GpG (2.50 atm) significantly before then
The 3rd challenge is obviously.
The Triple Threat
The main one and one I want the most is the Triple Threat so that 1500 goals from three players. The reason for this desire is that I have completed 3 1kc’s in the last couple of years and a Double Trouble as well so a TT is the final challenge I need to get in the Triple Crown hall of fame.
I have made a good start with Hamilton, Lyon and Cochrane getting 348 goals in the first four seasons which works out as 87 goals a season. They are over 20 now so hopefully they will increase there goal rate and also I can now focus on Hamilton as my main goalscorer again as he is the best of the three.
Hamilton was a stumbling bloke in my aims as he was desperate to leave the club and I did consider leaving and taking the trio else where but I think Lyon and Cochrane are best suited in Wales to get goals.
Luckily I remembered we can now talk to players that want to leave so I dragged him in the office and threatened to break his legs if he leaves and it seems to have done the job as he signed a new 5 year deal at a lot less per week than he was asking before.
I’m sure he will moan again soon enough but I have him for 5 more years and the club should be better placed by then to offer him much improved terms to carry on with us.
So here is a reminder of the three lads and how they look at the start of season 5.
I won’t be doing season updates but instead updating as I complete (or fail) each challenge. I expect the updates will be in this order.
Assists Triple Threat
Obviously that could change though if significant events occur like a player leaving or if I need to move clubs to carry on my main priority of the TT.
