    - The Strikers' Striker Challenge -
     

     
     
    You are right, the boys up there are in fact playmakers of the highest order and not your typical striker, but don't they look an awesome bunch? But more importantly, just like the misleading title, I am always thrilled to make people believe -Vibers in particular- that they are going to have an opportunity to manage FMM's finest stars when they are totally not. Quite the contrary actually -evil laughter- anyways... I present you my first of hopefully many FMM18 challenges to come. It is not a complicated challenge per se but it *will* test your tactical, strategical and man-management skills over a duration of at least 5 seasons. What formation are you going to play to get the most out of your not-so-greatly talented stars? How will you tweak the training to accommodate these non-stars? Have you given your worthless player enough rest inbetween games to excel when it matters? How does your squad react when you favor a godawful striker over a seasoned one, and how do you? What minimal qualities does your hopeles hero need to possess to be able to complete the upcoming insanity anyway? Questions and more questions you as the manager will need to find answers to. If you fail to complete any of the stages you may re-play them as often as you need before progressing onto the next one. Play the full 30 seasons to get a bigger total score if you like, or just the 5 to quickly note your name on the leaderboard for everyone to see. There are a couple of rules though but we get to those once I present The Strikers' Striker Challenge first. 
     
     
    The Challenge Objectives: Load any nations in any order you like, one of which must however be the English one, and select your preferred EPL club. You're going to embark on a journey taking 1 (forward) player with you from each of the lower English divisions per season, each increasing in difficulty as you go. For this challenge I have chosen to focus on goals scored in the Premier League only. This in order to have a gradual increase in difficulty and at the same time measuring your "weakening / less talented" striker Vs striker per stage against (near) identical opponents in the English top division. Stage 1 will see you score a minimum of 50 league goals with a striker bought from a Championship club. Stage 2 the exact same but this time with a striker bought from a League One side. Stage 3 with a player from League Two, and Stages 4 and 5 with one from Vanarama National and Vanarama North/South respectively. See below:
     
    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  
     
    The Challenge Rules:
    No unlockables incl. SD, no IGE or reloading etc. Coaching Badges ARE allowed.  The 5 stages must be completed in order of difficulty (1 to 5) and may last no more than 1 season each. Take as many attempts per stage as you need but a new player must be used for every new attempt and/or stage. Your chosen player must score 50+ league goals in 1 season before you may move on to the next stage.  When buying a player, all teams in that specific league count, also newly promoted/relegated ones. Players you may use: real players, fake/grey players and regens. Players you may NOT use: players used in previous attempts + ex-players of your club (to combat the obvious ) Post a career for us to follow in order to be eligible for the leaderboard.  Have fun

    The nations that are available to you during a save depend on the leagues you have loaded, as you require at least 50 players from that nation to be able to manage their national team. I have loaded up the database in various combinations to try and ensure that this is complete a list as possible. You will need to load the correct leagues to get some of these teams E.G. Load the MLS to manage Canada, Jamaica or Bermuda. The more players you load the more nations you will have available. If I have missed anyone please let me know the combination of leagues you loaded and I can add them to the list.

    Colidio Not The Real Deal
    By Batigoal - Argentinian starlet "Facundo Colidio is not the real deal - he waggles like a seal cause he's not the real deal - not the real deal". That's the same repetitive chant we've been hearing in the stadiums worldwide from the opposing crowds throughout the games. Some of them believed to be home fans too. That's the opinion of hundreds of thousands of football fans around the world but one his club manager Scratch99 fails to share. "ha! those bloody idiots have no clue whom they're looking at. When was the bloody last time we saw a man score 78 league goals? 96 in the entire bloody season? Exactly mate, not yesterday was it.. let them idiots sing their Xmas balls off I'm telling you right here right now.. Colidio is no Armstrong...yet.. but this man is becoming a legend whether those singing divas like it or not. Calling themselves football fans pfff not even worthy of laying eyes on a class player like Facu. And I tell you what.. he's going to beat his best and nick 100 next season, mark my words and smoke 'em! " Celtic manager Scratch99 echoed in no uncertain terms of what his and his Argentinian talisman Facundo Colidio are planning to deliver to the tv's and stadiums around the globe during the coming 2027/28 season. And if not, he may very well pay with his job.

    Perhaps with the in game editor you could change a bunch of players who arent capped by diffrent countrys nationality to SM and that might work. Never tried it so don't know if that would work.

    Thanks mate, yeah I guess it's not *too* bad! 
    I just couldn't believe the timing of the injury. He gets through the whole season without getting injured and then gets one on the morning of the final match! What are they training for on match day anyway? What are you doing to me FMM? 
    Of course he missed about 10 penalties over the course of the year, so if he was a little better at those he would have killed it.

    FuddledFox reacted to Scott in Calvin Stengs   
    Name: Calvin Stengs
    Age: 18
    Club: AZ Alkmaar 
    Position: Attacking midfielder
    Value: £6.25 million
    League Loaded: Eredivisie
     
    Attributes at the start of game: 

    Attributes after 4 seasons:

    How he performed for me:
    2017/18 - Played 36 - Scored 13 - Assists 22

    What position/role did he play?
    Season 2020/21 he played AMR as an advanced playmaker, first 3 seasons played in midfield and attacking midfield in different roles.
    How much does he cost in first transfer window?
    He will cost £16m if you can't unsettle him and £8m - £12m if you can.
    Can he be retrained?
    I retrained him to play as a striker and he had very poor aptitude for MC/DMR/DL 
    Negatives?
    His physical Attributes are capped at 15/14/14 and his favourite club is Man Utd.
    Potential?
    I think he's good enough to play for the top clubs but there are better youngsters on the game.
    Coach report at Liverpool was to exceed Salah's level of ability in the future.
    So will you be signing Calvin Stengs on this years game?
