    Those goals don't include any penalties as he isn't my penalty taker.

    I'm using the Saturn v9 patch and inflation 2.0x from Nick's patcher. So its current money terms.

    In context I am making 160m profit per year excluding any purchase or sales of players. so 96m isn't bank breaking by any stretch. I currently have a 218m transfer budget.

    Season 12 and nearly there. Matthew Williams started all 70 of the 75 games we played, scoring 96 goals taking his total to 967 goals.





    With just 33 goals required it is almost inevitable that the target will get passed, probably in October or November. Just as well as Williams contract has just 12 months remaining and as he has decided that he want's to move to a bigger club, there is no chance of getting an extension. That is the same story for a number players, with 12 of them entering their final year.

    The only significant transfer was the exit of 2nd choice keeper John Holmes who went to Fulham for a club record 1,000,000. His replacement, Matthew Hancock arrived for free and looks just as good.

    In domestic competitions, we failed to win the League cup for the first time. That left us temporarily without a cup in the trophy cabinet, but since we went on to win the Welsh Cup and Premier Cup, that situation didn't last long. We are so far ahead of everyone else that the League is hardly a contest and we won it for the 12th time in a row.

    Europe saw all the drama. After disposing of Belasica and Red Star we again made the Champions League group stage. I was not confident with Real Madrid and Celtic in the group, but the big guns were very disappointing and we ended up topping the group ahead of Lokomotiv Moscow.



    For the second season running we found ourselves up against Barcellona in the second phase. A fine defensive performance earned a 0-0 draw in Spain, but back home, Matthew Williams bagged a hat-trick in a game where the Catalans saw 2 red cards and Cwmbran recorded a famous win. Inter and Hertha BSC were very disappointing, but we fully deserved or chance to make the knockout stage for the first time.



    Chelsea was the reward and in a crazy start at Stamford Bridge, captain James Panayi was sent off after just 5 minutes. However the home supporters were soon silenced when Matthew Williams pounced on a loose ball and beat Shay Given from outside the box. Despite an onslaught, the 10 men held out until after the hour, but once Owen Hargreaves unlocked the defence, the floodgates opened and Chelsea went on to score 3 more.

    Back in Wales, Matthew Price gave us hope with a first half strike, but Chelsea just shut up shop and when Craig Disley's goal was disallowed for a shove on a defender, that was our challenge over. With 16 goals, Matthew Williams was the Champions League leading scorer for the 3rd year running !

    I'll just be hoping that Williams stays injury free and that James Panayi and Kristian Ravneng don't retire. I may wind down the reserve team as I know the players that I want to see us over the line.

    Fingers crossed.

    Edit to add .... Be nice bonus if he could get the 1,000th goal against a big European club.

    Never in doubt. He knocked off the first 20 goals needed in just 15 games. The 25th was a match winning penalty at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League. A brace at Bangor took him to 998 and gave him the chance of scoring the 1,000th away to PSV. He did get a goal, but picked up a knock in the process, so was subbed to prevent a longer injury.

    That left a scruffy goal on a cold night in Oswestry, in front of just 664 spectators to knock in the 1,000th (2 earlier strikes were chalked off for offside)

    The welsh wizard!

    Of course he had to be a united youth product ... Never in doubt!

    Interesting he was only MoM in 1/3rd of those games. You must have had some other cracking performances!

    Time for an update on my go at this.

    But before that I thought I'd give a bit of background on the save.

    March 2020 update - saturn v9 and nick's patch. 2 or 2.5 x inflation chosen can't really remember.

    I have just started the 2037/38 season. And now had my challenger for 4 season, more of that later.

    Apart from 2019/20 where I finished 2nd to Liverpool by three points, I (Manchester United) have won the premier league every year. So 16 consecutive titles so far. I'm using 4141 tapani_iodine (Pressing Alto) tactic downloaded from this site. So not a fantastic achievement by any stretch its really all someone else's work.

    I've also won 1 Europa League (2019/20), 13 Champions Leagues, 12 European Super Cups, 10 FA Cups, 12 League Cups, 14 Community Shields and 10 World Club Cups.

    I've had some great strikers - Luka Reischl (homesick, sold to Villa??), Lionel Messi (Retired), Erling Haaland (Bought and Sold - Real Madrid after 6 years), Kylian Mbappe (3 years - new challenge). At the end of 2032/33 when Kylian Mbappe left I was desperately looking for a striker and I found Daniel Sequeira. I had to pay a huge fee, as mentioned above and paid 96m for him but he immediately repaid that and I am now aiming to get the 100 goal challenge completed.

    In season three which had just started in my last updated he had a slightly worse season but still on track. He's now scored 418 goals in 239 games, of which 224 are league goals. His contract end in June 2045 so I have 8 years left but I might look to extend again shortly. We'll see how it goes.



    His best performance was 7 against Salford City in a 5th round FA Cup match

    I was wondering whose regen he might be, possibly Aguero but it looks like he regenned too late for that as Aguero is currently 49 in the game??

    Probably the opposition goalkeeper

    Yes, the opposition keepers or defenders did get a lot of awards, and I think that he was at times unfairly judged, with the mom regularly going to a player who had the same match rating. That said, I did have some superb players to support Williams

    Code:
    Holloway (MC)    660 games 86 mom 259 goals 241 assists 8.01 avg
    Disley (AMC)     461 games 53 mom 114 goals 193 assists 7.83 avg
    Johnson (FRC)    241 games 30 mom 140 goals  67 assists 7.95 avg
    Price (DMLC)     528 games 37 mom 165 goals 216 assists 7.87 avg
    Andersen (DMC)   600 games 24 mom 105 goals 104 assists 7.74 avg
    Tierney (DLC)    596 games 22 mom  95 goals 149 assists 7.84 avg
    Stevens (AM/FLC) 163 games 19 mom  41 goals  50 assists 8.66 avg
    Ravneng (DR)     731 games 13 mom  82 goals 100 assists 7.70 avg
    My keeper for the last 8 seasons (Coyne) played 448 games, conceded just 129 goals but got just 1 mom award.
    Despite getting regular call ups to squads, not a single Cwmbran Town player got an international cap and Sparky Hughes is still in charge of Wales, so I couldn't stop it happening.

    You are right, the ages don't quite tie up for Aguero, unless he played on to about 40. Other possibilities could be Gonzalo Higuain, Mauro Iccardi or Rodrigo Palacio (or some nonentity who just happened to have a very high PA)

    Edit: My money would be on Icardi. he is 5 years younger than Aguero.

    At the end of the next season Sequeira has had an absolute blinder ... Another 134 goals (in 58 games) including an 8 in the EFL cup semi-final first leg vs Charlton and another run of 20 goals in four games. Despite missing 7 weeks as a result of two injuries.




    That brings his total up to 552 goals in 297 games over 5 seasons.
