    Havertz has well and truly failed over this career 😂 Still looking good although can't see the GAM happening.

    77 and 80 are going to be tricky if his stamina drops. I can see you starting Leon on the bench in future games.
    Arp is pretty much done and dusted. Well done mate. Great stuff

    Foxy reacted to samhardy in Home Nations Triple Threat   
    Coming up to 4 months since this was last updated now and I said my only remaining target was to get Woodburn to 1K.
    Since it's been so long as you've guessed I have stopped playing it so this will be the last update for this career.
    Woodburn reached the 1K easily as he was expected to do.

    I believe that was the first time I'd got a striker to 100 goals in a season before so that was a personal milestone as well. It was going to be even bigger the next season until this happened.

    Here's what he looks like at the end.

    Cheers to everyone who followed this from the start and I'm delighted it ended with both the triple threat and the 1K completed
    Ben Woodburn final total - 1011

    Foxy got a reaction from futhazardous in How to concede less goals   
    That's a great record and although conceding goals is annoying you are scoring far more than conceding and winning a huge % of your games so is it a major problem?
    Of course it is as we all want to be better don't we
    A few things I look for are 
    Make sure you have CB's with high pace if you play very attacking football, with high pressing so they can get back quickly when you lose the ball. Make sure your CB's and any defensive mids like DLP or BWM have good positioning and teamwork so they get in the right place for interceptions and they work hard for the team. Decisions is also important in any player but especially is defensive players imo so that they know when to pass and when to just clear it. As the other lads said it would be good to see your tactics to see if anything stands out as a problem but all in all it sounds like you are doing great and maybe just a couple of tweaks are needed.

    I needed 88 goals from Arp to complete the 1k and 9 more unique timed goals from Goretzka and that would be those two challenges ticked off. Nice and easy then!?!
    Goretzka GaM
    The less times I need to tick off the more likely it is I will have a season when I don’t tick off any and although I hadn’t yet had a zero season this one looked like it would be. Despite Leon getting a career best 31 goals this season, helped in no small part by Arp getting an injury at the end of the season leading to Leon scoring 11 goals in the final 8 games of the season, it looked like he wouldn’t tick a single time off. That was until the 11th of May and he got a hat trick versus Eibar and got 2 times in one match! That was a major relief and means that he is now 7 times away but the seasons are running out.
    Leon is 35 now but still looks very good in fact I would say world class. I changed him to a fitness training regime at the beginning of the season to try and maintain to physical attributes. Towards the end of the season his physicals did drop a little as his progress report shows below and although he made 57 appearances I have to add that I played him so long as his condition was above 85% and he got subbed off in every game some times at half time if he was unfit and other times on 80mins as he has all the times after that. I expect that in the next season or 2 we will see a dramatic drop in his physical attributes.

    Arp 1kc
    If Arp was going to get the 1k this season he was going to need 88 goals to do it which is possible for him as he has scored that many or more 4 times so far but that was back when he had all set pieces and since I put Leon on to pens and FK’s  the closest he has got is 85 last season. He was hampered by a two week injury which caused him to miss 5 games in December and then as I mentioned above he got a knock towards the end of the season which was only a 1 week injury but he missed 5 games by the time he was back to 95% condition. Those 10 games he missed cost him perhaps 15 goals on his total of 71 for the season so either way he would have missed out this year but he would be much closer than the 17 goals away that he is now.

    Amiri vs Havertz Assists Challenge
    Last year Amiri broke my 400 assists target I had set him at the beginning of the career so I see everything now as a bonus but as it turned out both him and Havertz had there best seasons for a number of years despite them both missing 12 games this season.

    Any Other Business
    Transfers
    In pre-season I said goodbye to one of the unsung hero’s of this save as Jonathan Tah moved to Liverpool on a Bosman after 630 appearances, 33 goals and 48 assists for the club. I didn’t really want to let him go but he had started to take a back seat over the last few seasons with most of his appearances coming as a sub due to his versatility.
    I brought in a Brazilian attacking midfielder and a CB to boost the squad.
    Competitions
    We had a clean sweep again this season although we left it late in the Spanish Super Cup with Arp scoring with 3 minutes to go and prevent us losing on away goals that also preserved our 100% record in that competition with season 1 when we weren’t in it being the only time we haven’t won it.

    Team Stats
     
    I hope Arp can knock those 17 goals off in around about 10 games at the start of next season and then he will take a back seat (probably on the bench) to Leon as I see if I can get him nearer that GaM.
    Cheers Lads

    The boffins in FoxBet towers have been crunching the numbers all day and can exclusively reveal the new odds for outright winner of the VWC.
    We have a new favourite following fine performances from @PriZe and @Titjes with Benelux coming into 2/1 whilst former favourites Wales are 5/2 after @Taff and @Nucleus crushed the opposition in Group A. We can't separate Australia and England with both nations at 5/1. @RipRip had an excellent score in the group stage and a good performance from @Real_Random saw the Aussies take 2nd in Group B and also outscore Group A runners up England but and  are Olympic gold @Rob2017 and @Woody silver medallists respectively so they cannot be underestimated.
    Benelus 2/1

    Yesterday we saw Wales cruise into the semi’s along way ahead of England and we had to say goodbye to Singapore. Now its time to complete the semi-final line up by looking at what happened in Group B.
    Team Members 1
    Remember these three lads had to take over at Fiorentina and buy an Argentine striker to get the hat tricks. We saw three different strikers use here as @PriZe choose Guido Carrilo, @Real_Random went for Sebastian Driussi and @ManLikeRobbieBrady went for Lautaro Martinez.
    We will start by looking at how the current Vibe number 1 got on, as @PriZe has been away for a few weeks has he gone ring rusty? He managed to get Carrilo to score 76 goals in 43 games and he had an incredible 13 hat tricks! He got maximum points by winning the cup and in the league he drew 4 games and lost one to score 103 points.
    PriZe Scored
    41 hat trick pts
    8 cup pts
    103 league pts
    Total: 152
    Next up we will see how @ManLikeRobbieBrady got on with Martinez. He managed to get 32 goals in 41 games with 2 hat tricks including a 4 goal game. He won the cup beating Juventus 3-0 in a penalty shoot out after a 2-2 draw and also beat Juve to the league title as well by 10 points.
    MLRB Scored
    7 hat trick pts
    8 cup pts
    91 league pts
    Total: 106 pts
    Completing the number 1’s is @Real_Random and he took a slightly different approach as he focused more on the team as a whole and getting a good haul of league points instead of hat tricks. Driussi only scored 24 goals in 43 games and had one 3 goal haul but RR killed it in the league scoring 99 points as he won the title. He got to the cup final but lost to AC Milan.
    RR Scored
    3 hat trick pts
    6 cup pts
    99 league pts
    Total: 108pts
    So after the first round of scores Benelux are well ahead following PriZe’s score and they must have 1 foot in the semi’s but it is tight for 2nd with only 2 points separating the Aussie’s and the Brazilians.
    Team Member 2 Scores
    Just as in group A all these guys brought Smolov in as they took over at Valencia.
    I say that Benelux have one foot in the semi’s but a team is only as strong as it’s weakest member so just how strong was Titjes?
    The answer is pretty strong as @Titjes had an impressive round with 69 goals scored in 42 games with 10 hat tricks. He did disappoint in the cup as he was knocked out by Real in the semi-finals but he never lost a game in the league as despite 12 draws he took the title.
    Titjes Scored
    34 hat trick pts
    6 cup points
    90 league pts
    Total: 130 pts
    Benelux Scored: 282
    Unsurprisingly that is the highest team score we have seen this round and was enough for Benelux to win the group.
    Who would join them in the knockouts?
    Brazil’s 2nd team member is @Cockers2505 and he scored 39 goals in 39 games with Smolov but he was hampered by a couple of injuries which lead to him missing games. He got hat tricks in 4 games including 4 in one game and lifted the Spanish cup as well. He disappointed in the league though as he could only come 4th 11 points behind Barca.
    Cockers Scored
    13 hat trick pts
    10 cup pts
    81 league pts
    Total:104 pts
    Brazil Scored: 210 pts
    That means that @RipRip needed to score more than 102 points and the aussies would take 2nd place in the group and would take on Wales in the semi-finals.
    RipRip certainly got Smolov firing as he scored 74 goals in 46 games with 7 hat tricks and 1 four goal haul as well. His Valencia team lifted the cup with a win over Bilboa in the final 2-1 and made it a double by winning the league on H2H over Real Madrid as they both finished on the same points.
    RipRip Scored
    25 hat trick pts
    10 cup pts
    89 league pts
    Total: 124 pts
    Australia Total: 232
    In the end Australia take the 2nd spot by 22 points and will go on to meet Wales in the semi-finals whilst Benelux had the top score of the round and will meet England next. Commiserations to both MLRB and Cockers you can both feel proud of your scores and I hope we will see you both take part in future tournaments.
     

    The Golden Mobile Award
    We saw some excellent scoring in this round and its PriZe that takes an early 8 point lead in the MVP competition but there is still 2 more challenges to come for the eight remaining compeitors and plenty of points still to go for.

     
    I just want to finish off by thanking you all for submitting your scores. It’s rare that the first round of any Vibe event has 100% submissions but you guys achieved that and justified me asking you all to take part in the first place.
    The semi-final challenge will be out tomorrow.
    Cheers lads

    We are down to the final four now as we said goodbye to both Singapore and Brazil in the last round. These are the fixtures for the semi-finals with the 2 winners meeting next week in the final and the two losers fighting it out for 3rd place.

    The Challenge
    This weeks challenge is all about the youngest and oldest players to appear at the World Cup finals. The youngest player ever was Northern Ireland and Manchester United striker Norman Whiteside when he appeared against Yugoslavia in the 1982 world cup group stage at the age of 17 and 41 days. That match was also his first cap for his country and he beat the previous record that was set by Pele in the 1958 world cup.

    The oldest player ever was actually set at this year’s World Cup when goalkeeper Essam El – Hadary played for Egypt in there final group game versus Saudi Arabia and despite saving a penalty they lost 2-1. He was 45 years and 161 days old and beat the previous record held by Colombian goalie Faryd Mondragón set at the 2014 world cup.

    You are all going to be doing a unique age challenge to celebrate these records. If you have never done a unique age challenge before you really need to pay attention to the rules as any mistakes will cost you and your team heavily!

    Once you take over your team you need to build a squad of players that all have a unique age when the transfer window closes in the summer and then in January you need to make sure the ages are still unique and sell anyone who clashes so that on the 1st of February the squad ages are unique. The ages only need to be unique on those dates. Confused? Well on the 1st of September and then again on the 1st of February you will have a squad who’s ages are all different like in these screenshots.
    1st September
     
    1st February

    To add to that you should have a striker as the youngest member of your squad and a GK as the oldest also the GK you buy must be the only GK in your squad. If he is injured or suspended you need to play a greyed out player.
    Simple right!?!

    Points
    Only your young striker and GK will be scoring points in this challenge and they will do so as follows.
    Striker league goals + GK league clean sheets + the player out of the 2 with the lowest league AvR.
    E.g. 30 goals + 10 clean sheets + Your Gk AvR of 7.50 = 47.5 points.
    In case of a tie league points will be used.
    I will also be deducting points if:
    ·        -50 points for each player with the same age on the 1st September and the 1st of February. So if you have 2 players who are 19 you will be deducted 100 points.
    ·        You will score ZERO if you send me a screenshot of the squad ages on any dates other than the 1st September and the 1st February.
    Teams
    Team member 1: @PriZe, @Taff, @Woody and @Real_Random you will manage the club Whiteside ended his career at Everton.
    Team Member 2: @Titjes, @Nucleus, @Rob2017 and @RipRip as El Hadery has spent most of his career in Egypt and has never played for a team that is available in FMM18  you will go to one of Mandragora’s many Clubs Galatasaray.
