Career The All-Rounder Challenge - My Attempt

Posted by
  • Level 9 L9

Right, my first career and first challenge (that I have posted, plenty of failed attempts at the 1k goalscorer challenge and many more careers for fun). I hope this looks like it does in the preview screen!

 

500 Goals, 500 Assists - 1 Player. One cracker of a Portuguese Wonderkid, one, Goncalo Guedes. The 500 goals should be OK but combining that with 500 assists is going to be tricky.

 

The Player

IMG_6759.thumb.PNG.e53e7e15c6e04ce1db259

 

The Club - Full of brilliant young players, a good transfer budget, great facilities and now a young upstart manager.

Season One: The Beginning

 

Transfers

To me transfers are the best bit so I made a few. I shipped a lot out and with all the money I brought in a mix of youth, players with which I could build a team around Guedes that will play together for years to come, and experience as you'll never win anything with kids.

Some quality gone but for good money. Tevez, Kante and Vertonghen should provide a solid base for these youngsters to learn their trade. Tevez to me is the best value player on the game in the short term.

 

The Formation

Guedes will be playing the role of IF.

The League

IMG_6774.thumb.PNG.4fa7444969fb833a333e6

Not the highest goal tally I've ever seen but we won the league pretty easily.

 

I'm missing a few screen shots of the other stuff but this my first time, it'll only get better.

 

The Manager

 

That's me, although I'm not really Portuguese.

IMG_6770.thumb.PNG.cc5d711fd5fad8a0f33ef

 

The Main Man

Intensive training, retraining in a few positions and we've got ourselves a player.

I've never noticed the positions display on the top right of screen until I loaded this screen shot... Literally never seen it before.

Tevez was the main man and Pizzi got about 28 assists from midfield.

 

A solid if slow start for Guedes but with those attributes for an 18/19 year old I reckon he'll kick on from here!

Good start, he looks world class after just one year on IT!

Some solid transfers there. Gonna be tough to reach both those goals, think the assists will be the hardest.

I'm hoping his sheer ability will get me through this rather than it being any particular skill on my part.

Reaching 500 assists would be hard enough on it's own but managing that whilst making sure he scores goals too really will be a challenge!

Season Two: The Difficult Second Season

After a season of trying to break my Wonderkids in gently I decided to throw them all into the deep end. So along with Guedes the likes of Renato Sanchez, Luis Henrique, Luka Jovic, Max Romero, Mattheus Perreira and Jhon Arango would all be seeing a lot of game time at the expense of some of the older players. John Stones, Jose Gaya, N’Golo Kante and Neslon Semedo drag the average age up slightly and Vertonghan and Akinfeev are positively ancient!

Anyway, let’s see how it went

 

Transfers

A fraction of last years. Always check when buying a new 1st choice keeper for the season that they aren’t cup tied in the champions’ league, thanks for that CSKA. Looks like Donnarumma will be getting some 1st team exposure ahead of schedule!

Euro naivety – The pressure of penalties seemed to get the best of the whole team.

The Main Event

An increase in the right direction for the lad but not yet hitting the numbers needed to realistically reach the goal. He’s still very young though and with those attributes I’m not worried just yet.

Results

I have discovered there are anomalies between the player front screen international goals and the stats page for internationals fixtures – realistically what that means is that I can’t rely on the stats page for international assists… therefore I can’t really include them! Just made my life a lot harder.

So, now out of his teens I was expecting a bit from Guedes this season, plus the target is a pipe dream with the numbers he’s got from seasons one and two. Season three went thusly…

 

Transfers

Not too much going on this year, just a striker I liked the look of, shipping out some squad players and a few youngster who weren't going to make it

Season 4

Just a quick update for season 4

I bought Kyriakos Papadopoulos and promoted a couple of B team players, not much else.

Unbeaten in the league

IMG_6650.thumb.PNG.b33992d7f646ff4decbc7

 

Easy peasy - just the one loss all season to Valencia

The team - Jovic and Crivelli doing well upfront for most of the season, a good mix of goals and assists whilst Guedes takes the headlines. Sanches and Kante building a strong partnership in midfield. Pap and Stones doing well at the back and Gaya and Semedo are reliable as ever. Should have taken a pic of Akinfeev's stats, i think he let in about 20-25 goals all season. Not really happy with Bazoer and Maia at DM but as I've mentioned before their individual performance is shackled "for the greater good!"

Just the B team missing out on the league and Lewandowski getting the balloon door (Guedes came 2nd, don't know where the screen shot is) stopping a clean sweep.

The goals should be a doddle at this rate and whilst he's a bit short of the target the assists are getting higher.

Lets hope he can kick on with the assists in season 5. I might even think about messing around with the tactic to get the ratios a bit more even.

Outstanding couple of seasons and a great looking squad.

Crivelli looks a top class striker, never used him before.

Crivelli has replaced Andreas Cornelius (can't find him after the update) as my go to TM or DLF - his attributes are cracking and he rarely has a bad game.

Season 5

 

Right, let's see if I can get him assisting as much (or nearly anyway) as he scores. With very few exceptions my entire squad has passing and teamwork stats as 15+, I'm hoping this doesn't mean I've managed to create a team who are too polite to put it in the back of the net and help out Guedes with those assists!

Just a quickie but I'm sure you'll get the jist of how it went.

The Competetions - I love seeing all that green!

ARRRGGGHHH!!! - They scored in the 1st minute and that was it, still no unbeaten season.

Portugal - Euro 2020 - I forgot to mention as so far it has been thoroughly uninspiring but I was made Portugal manager at the start of the 2018/19 season. Despite having an ok squad, the defence is a bit weak excluding Semedo at right back. Ronaldo and Nani are both suited to the position Guedes plays in so they struggled when I fudged them in elsewhere. To be honest Nani was our best player but I only brought him on as a replacement for Guedes to save the latter’s condition for club games. They had some good DMs in Ruben Neves and Will Carvalho but that is the “sacrificed position” – I’ve went for Bernado Silva as AVP in CM alongside Renato Sanches at BBM as the other options aren’t playing at their clubs. Rui Pedro is good striker and I found a decent TM to play upfront with him.

An easy group set up a tricky 1st round knockout tie.IMG_6697.thumb.PNG.294aee64a590b3c0b16a3IMG_6698.thumb.PNG.70207d9f19e823acae4d2IMG_6700.thumb.PNG.ab04f798b0f65b0f3b713IMG_6703.thumb.PNG.a5a1288f780d39dd55725

 

It’s nill-nill at full time so we head for extra-time. Guedes is already off due to -65% condition (I tend to bring him off before he hits 70% but this was an exception).

Morata scores in 102 minute and Spain have gone defensive… Here comes the kitchen sink!

Season 6

Even though my strikers aren't scoring too many I didn't make to many changes

Transfers - I let a few squad players go as well as Akinfeev as I felt Donnarumma was ready to see some 1st team action. I also brought in a few old faces, Tezev and Gaitan for the B team just for nostalgia as well as Nani as he had done well for me with Portugal.

This pic was taken at the end of the season so Thomas Lemar and Inaki Williams were offered contracts in the January window and due to join next season.

The Tactic

As it’s working pretty well I thought I’d post my full tactic.

Having never really had any success with wingers in past versions of FMM I have tended to stick pretty rigidly to the out of the box 4-1-2-1-2 with attacking, short passing, pressing and committed tackling and it has always worked pretty well.

My first save on FM2016 was with Everton and I moved the AM out to the right to accommodate Deulofeu and made him IF and was pretty pleased with the results, then I bought Gareth Bale and put him there and was downright astonished. I then found this community and read the tactical guides and started tinkering and this is what I ended up with.

I change the striker roles with the wind depending on who I’m playing at CF, I’ll generally have a TM or DLF paired with a PCR, AF or TRQ. I’ve recently started experimenting with defensive forwards too with some good results. I also use BPDs at the back if I have good enough CB, generally that’ll be the case if I have someone like Stones (which I do).

We got Inaki Williams and Thomas Lemar in on free transfers and to be honest the team was looking a bit full so I loaned out Luis Henrique and Matheus Pereira to try out the new boys.

I also decided to see if i could make improve my B team with a few aging superstars.

Does an increase in stadium size come with any benefits? Reputational  maybe?IMG_6753.thumb.PNG.6a8ee895c4e6ae063ca3a

 

The League

Just the one loss and a couple of draws meant we won at a canter.

The Cups

After Chelsea knocked us out of the Champions league it was just the domestic cups and Europe to go for.

Supertaca - Nice start to the season from Guedes

The League Cup - What?!

Taca De Portugal - Ever reliable Sanches

Champions League - We're back! (the keen eyed of you will notice Matheus Pereira was playing... He'd been returned from loan and to be honest, I'd missed him)

Awards and 1st Team

I should count how many of these he has now - is it 5 or 6?!

Good season from Sanches

How is he still young enough?

You might notice Williams and Lemar are missing - I loaned them out too. Not sure why but I felt like i only got them because they were available for free. I ended up just trying out a few youth players instead.

Season 9

Nearly there on the goals – I am going to try out some new formations for next season to try and get the assists up, the goals should take care of themselves.

Thanks! Season 10 is going a bit slower than the others as I'm changing my tactics loads and watching the games on extended pitch mode.

The New Tactic

I have changed formation to try and get Guedes' assists up - I spent the first 20 games or so of Season 10 chopping and changing with various degrees of success, I even had one where I spread all the other players around the edges of the pitch and only had Guedes in CM as AP in the hope that everything would go through him, it didn't.

So, I remembered the formation I used to use in the late nineties where the likes of Veron, Zidane and Rivaldo would get tons of assists and I tried it out, it wasn't bad so I stuck with it. This is it.

I'm playing Guedes as AP and have moved my usual wing backs into the DW positions and they are flying, I no longer have the problem DM position either so generally average ratings are up. I don't know why the two Defensive Forwrads work but they do, probably because of the quality of strikers. I tried messing around with the roles but none did better in the short term so I just stuck with it for the long term.

Full season update tomorrow.

Season 10

I'll do a full report this time round. The squad has changed a lot since season 7 when i last did a thorough review. I have shipped out a lot of the wonderkids i bought at the start of the game and replaced them with some of the strikers that were topping the scoring charts elsewhere - I can hazard a pretty strong guess at who they are regens of but i don't have the editor to check PAs.

Transfers – Lots going on, I’ll do a review of who’s in the squad now on the team section lower down. I did buy a ton of youngsters with good stats for the B team, partly to try and find wonderkids and also to up my managerial stats for the youth policy. I think I have Messi’s regen, he’s the most likely candidate out there but he doesn’t quite seem to be on the same level.

Ronaldo?! He was from our own youth team...

IMG_7008.PNG

The Team

My guess on who the regens are, apologies for spelling mistakes:

Defenders – Costa (Thiago Silva), Ventura (Carvalho), Koopman (Kompany), Ortiz (Zabaleta) and Di Maio (Liechtensteiner)

Midfielders – Morales (Vidal), Castano (Messi) and Ventura (Moutinho)

Attackers - Flores (Suarez/Cavani), Dias (Ronaldo), Ekwalla (E’too), Eriksson (Ibrahimovic – rubbish though) and Lukasik (Lewandowski)

Season 11

Just quick ones from here on out.

Comps - Another year without the Champions League, we we're done over in the final by one of the very many Argentine regen strikers the game always produces

IMG_7040.thumb.PNG.4ae4a04e34dfe5e96324b

 

The beginning of the end? - Guedes has been knocked off his perch by my Suarez/Cavani regen! 

IMG_6988.thumb.PNG.334e9db4f1f81696d07d8

IMG_7022.thumb.PNG.4040f3ac017cd7dbc807f

 

Or just the beginning? - Assists are up! If i can keep up that level for 5/6 seasons this is possible. Removing pressing from my tactics means Guedes is staying on the pitch longer and having the strikers I now have means there is a constant stream of goals for him to assist. A couple of seasons ago i took him off penalty duty and even that makes a difference as he probably wins 3 or 4 a year for someone else to convert (probably should have just done that from the start thinking about it).

Thanks guys. I think I need to work out how to do that 'hidden contents' thing, it makes for a better read - it takes about a minute to load my own career then I have to scroll down for ages to get through all the pictures. I'm happy with the challenge and have played this series for long enough to know if I manage this, on eme too, it's pretty high up in terms of difficulty in challenges.

To use a spoiler you need to highlight what you want hidden and then select the eye icon on the tab. Been wanting to read this but Internet has been crappy so struggled to get in here lol. 

I still can't get the images to load but judging on the text it seems to be going well!
