  1. Armstrong shooting for 1000 goals

    I'll try to do a team post in the next day or so. I'll need to include screenshots of the players, as none of them are real players anymore, they are all generated, so the names won't mean much!
  2. Armstrong shooting for 1000 goals

    Thanks mate. I sure didn't know I'd make, so appreciate the faith! I think I'll take him as far as I can, but might need a break after this season. I am going much faster now (not paying so much attention to the games, just pushing through). And can't wait to see you're 1KC career!
  3. Armstrong shooting for 1000 goals

    Nah, by the time he gets to 2000 he'll be 60 something and I'll be ready to part with him by then. If he still won't retire, it'll be be good if he has to resign...
  4. The 1000 Goal Challenge

    Who needs bootlaces? I'm changing to a 2 4 3 system and sacrificing one of my midfielders, whose job it will be to carry Armstrong around the field. I've been scouting out players for this role and I've settled on a guy called Hodor. (hope you get that reference!)
  5. Armstrong shooting for 1000 goals

    Season 19 Update - Rest of Season So, no need for any suspense this time around. Armstrong scored goal 1000 on Boxing Day! In the last update, I suggested I'd take a break, but we pressed on and finished the season. Got bills to pay and fans to please... Goals The rest of the season looked like this: You're no doubt wondering what that big empty area is - more on that below. Anyway, he ended up getting another 9 goals, taking him to 19 for the season, from 45 games. Definitely slowing down, but still scoring! Not bad given the condition he's in... And that takes him to 970 goals for Celtic, plus 39 for England, for a total of 1009 goals. Injuries In January, Armstrong suffered an injury during a match. Fortunately, he was fine once he got off the field and had a couple of beers (other players aren't allowed to drink, but Armstrong has earned some privileges!). He was able to suit up the very next game. He also scored a disallowed goal - a phantom goal to go with a phantom injury. Then in March, he got a real injury (and a real goal to go with it). He returned from injury looking like this: He's 38 now and he really hasn't bounced back from those injuries. So we'll keep pushing on, but he really shouldn't be playing for Celtic any more, except for the huge debt we owe him for all those goals! Results This year we won it all: We won: The league, going 32-5-1, with 117 goals for and 24 goals against. Our worst season in the league since early on in this career. The Scottish Cup Final 4-0 over St Johnstone The Betfred Cup Final 3-0 over Hearts In the Champion's League we beat Chelsea 5-3, Athletico Madrid 4-3, Tottenham 8-1 (including a 7-0 drubbing in the first leg), then faced Barcelona in the final. We beat them 4-0, although we were only 1-0 up with 3 minutes to go. Awards Bruno da Silva Francisco won the World Player of the Year award this year (his 3rd time), with Andres Martinez coming runner up, both Celtic players. The same pairing won the Scottish Premiership Player of the Year and runner up, with myself as Manager of the Year again. Shout out to Cattermole I just have to mention Sean Cattermole who scored 6 goals in a 9-1 drubbing of Dunfermline. Armstrong managed to score 6 before (twice I think, but I'd have to check), but that was in our 4 3 2 1 formation, designed for the vast majority of goals to come from the single forward. Cattermole did it in our 2 5 3 formation, where the goals are shared around much more. It was just one of those days were everything he touched turned to gold. The Future I guess I will press on for another season. The next target is 1000 goals for Celtic, which is 30 goals away. Could be tough as it will need two seasons and his attributes will be in the negatives by then... But I'll see. I really want try something different, but there is also part of me that wants to finish this before doing so.
  6. Armstrong shooting for 1000 goals

    Thanks mate, but you and @Taff better stop with this 'little known striker' and 'not usually considered fantastic' thing! The man's a legend and hopefully will be in real life too! Seriously though, he wasn't a superstar or wonderkid like some other players out there, but he was a promising youngster. I guess it just goes to show that anyone with the right attributes for a poacher role can generally become a big scorer. I would like to try it with someone who's good in the air as well (someone like Mitrovic) as the 4 3 2 1 formation I used for most of this would probably suit someone like that perfectly. Armstrong scored loads, but lost lots of headers...
  7. Armstrong shooting for 1000 goals

    Thanks mate! Shoot, I forgot the pie. I'll remind him when he gets to 2000!

    Or do you mean that it's not full width? If so, Preferences > View > User Interface > Stretch Display is what you want...
  9. Damn! I was just catching up on this and about to say it was a great concept and you're doing fantastically well and then I get to the bottom and read that! So sorry mate... That really is a nightmare...
  10. Llandudno For The Champions League!

    Oh wait, I just found the Bradley Wiggins Challenge thread. So I'll see you over there.
  11. Real Random attempts the Wine World Tour

    Going well mate! Nice choice, but does the low stamina rating cause any problems? How long does he last?
  12. Llandudno For The Champions League!

    Hehe, I was going to leave a longer comment, but was out of time after updating the Armstrong thread and needed to get to bed, so just opted for a short one. I was originally going to comment on this part: I can totally identify with this. As much as I'll miss Armstrong, I have so many other things I want to try. Can't wait to see what you get up to next.
  13. The 1000 Goal Challenge

    That'd be me for Armstrong, but I'm not quite finished with him yet, there's a few more goals I can wring out of him. So, I'll leave it for now and be back later when I have a final count for him.
  14. Armstrong shooting for 1000 goals

    Thanks mate! It was tough, but so worth it! I recommend everyone to try this challenge and write it up for the rest of us to enjoy.
  15. Armstrong shooting for 1000 goals

    Thank you mate! It's been a great ride. And I'm really happy that Armstrong can go have that beer with Asier in the 1KC club now.
