Career Cockers Attempts The UK Challenge V 3.0

  • Level 10 L10

Thanks @Idol & @Taff i'm pushing for this big style, my Tactics seems to be working with all my clubs so far :D

Yes @Idol I use a 4-3-2-1 formation, I change my Striker between Poacher and Advanced as I find sometimes they dry up and go on baron runs, so I switch it for a few weeks, then revert back once they start to score again, seems to work for me.

Update...

Stage 4 has began, and the lucky team is...

So they are in division 1 but I'm sure with a little push and some good shrewd purchases I can push for promotion to the Prem in the next couple of season's...

So a couple of excellent players to help me in this division...

5922d6b770612_Photo14-05-2017155223.png.a0e812fdbead04ac05dac8ae92c7dfcc.png

Stephy Mavididi is an excellent find who can score in any division, so he should smash this, or do I go with...

Saido Berahino is a proven goal scorer, he is a little older than Mavididi but his Stats have everything to bring success...

Full Transfers...

So a few more players to mention...

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - Should take this division by storm

Andre Wisdom - Wow, can play as a WB or CD, solid at the back

Mohamed Elneny - Another Midfield magician

Stage 4 starts from here, I will get them to the top division and then break the Record...

I'm not sure I'd go with Tranmere, only a madman would complete this challenge with Tranmere!

@Idol question, say if, and I know it would be a big if

if either of my strikers scored more than the Record even in the 1st Division would it still be valid, or does it have to be scored in the Prem?

And your right it would be mad with Tranmere, mmm, I recall somebody else doing it...

It has to be scored in the Premier League so you're probably best just concentrating on getting promoted rather than concentrating on striker goals.

It can be done with Tranmere :)

Not a bad call tho as you can use the Championship season to build/strengthen your squad and the following EPL season to hit the required number. No titles, no Cups, no bells and whistles just hit that number mate and you're in ;)

Thanks @Idol, @BatiGoal ill give it a shot, but if someone was to offer me a bigger club I'm going for it, I want this so bad its taking all my spare time :D

@Taff a little push is just what I need right now

So since the last Update I have progressed a little, I haven't bothered with updating Div 1 that much as I need the Prem, so here's how I got on...

Promoted through the Play-Offs, so I need to smash the Championship and get into the Prem, again not to bothered about the Scorers or how many, just will they get me into the Premiership and will it be Tranmere that gets me the record...

Good progress. If a Prem club comes knocking today it'll save you a season otherwise it'll just have to be the hard way. It usually is the hard way for us :)

Update...

As I said I have been smashing this due to some spare time to catch up, so I'm trying to get to the Prem and then the Challenge will begin again and I will slow down...

So how did I get on in the Championship...

A little screenshot to show how some of the season was going, had some really good results...

If the following Stats if this is anything to go by, this guy could be the answer to my prayers in the Premiership...

Stephy Mavididi

So enough of the Championship, the main news and the best part is...

IMG_0877.thumb.PNG.73cc4708fee2164a852dee0ef6dda783.PNG

So into the Premiership I go, will Mavididi continue to score for fun, or will I crash and burn...

Management Stats so far...

The beautiful thing here is you have so much time, give Mavididi a go and if he's not up for it there's always a new striker and a new season

Good work, as has been said you're smashing it, loads of time to get to a dominant position in the league even if you fail a few times.

Cheers @Taff, @AndersJ and @Idol I do have time on my hands now, I have built up a strong squad so far, and I'm sure I'll bring in a few more quality players to assist in the Premiership...

update soon as I have the day off, watch this space...

Update...

As I said I have the time currently as I'm not in work today so here goes...

I have made a few signings, nothing to report massively except...

IMG_0881.PNG.dbc702e97d301f03cdb2bacbead8b4f1.PNG

IMG_0882.PNG.b79dcf52f0fc07ebf7b329f2bec7eced.PNG

These 2 are to booster my chances, currently Mavididi is still my main man...

Others to mention...

Paul Pogba - Big midfielder to booster my chances

Simon Tibbling - Another strong Attacking midfielder to boost my attacking options

First Game in the Premiership...

IMG_0883.PNG.13486300704749371e1c25873805c626.PNG

Good start to the campaign, went with Dybala as Mavididi not fully fit...

So my season started well...

IMG_0885.PNG.b89208c9e24980dd747f34d6014cda93.PNG

yep first 7 games unbeaten, scores 18 and only conceded 4, so promotion to the big league, 6 wins and 1 draw in my first 7 games in the Premiership, and brought in some very good if not excellent players, and to top it off I earned the Manager of the Month award...

So...

IMG_0884.thumb.PNG.da032efbac66abb77686e430d5a1c515.PNG

WTF!!!! I clearly don't understand how I could be performing any better?????

How in the name of Jor-els smelly underpants could you possibly be underperforming top of the EPL in your first season

I think the board have been hitting the bars in Tranmere a bit too hard

19pts. You're nowhere near safe from relegation yet. :laugh:

If I were you I'd let them drown in their own misery and take the next available job. :O

Well @BatiGoal you say that...

Update...

12 Games into the new and first Season in the Premiership with Tranmere, obviously as mentioned before they should be happy and content, but oh no, so apologies to all those Tranmere fans expecting another @Taff...

IMG_0886.thumb.PNG.cb6479a0e96e1a94eb4ae83cb0c09d02.PNG

I didn't have to take it, but I couldn't resist due to the history of the League and who I could interest to join me...

IMG_0887.PNG.9123b03cb343d9afc26c1fc200533636.PNG

So bye bye Tranmere (serves them right for doubting me :D) and the adventure start here, 12 games in, obviously they are not doing to well, so we will have to change that...

So I have at my disposal...

IMG_0890.PNG.766cff733be97a7b38eae77a03419949.PNG

Breel Embolo is probably the better of him and Schick, but as I took control Embolo was already cropped...
