[B][U][SIZE=6]308 England Goals[/SIZE][/U][/B]

He has finally done it, he just hit his 308th International Goal for England, In doing so he has passed Gareth Blacks previous record of 307,

A fantastic achievement from him and it was a decent goal against N.Ireland to get him to the milestone,

[URL="http://img219.imageshack.us/img219/4594/308thinternationalgoal.mp4"]Higgins 308th International Goal[/URL] - He picks up a ball over the top cuts in from the left, goes past a couple of players before thumping it in from the edge of the area. A typical Higgins Goal :D

Now it will be interesting to see just how many he can get as he should still have a good few years left, and with me being England manager he has no fear of being dropped or left out ;)

I never thought that i'd live to see that record beaten, what an astonishing achievement! :eek:

It is a great achievement, but i think he did get lucky in the fact that i took over as England Manager before he had turned 20 so i have had 10 years of managing him at international level, i am sure that made a difference,

Also, it has taken him a little longer, as i think Nep said Gareth Black was only 28 when he quit that save so he would have been way ahead if he had continued as Higgins has just reached it at 30

[quote name='NepentheZ']I'll dig up the numbers tomorrow. Still, you'll have to excuse my "hanging on to every smylie record" thing. It's hard times. :D

However, I'm genuinely happy for you. It's something I never thought would be beaten, and after all the "cheat" accusations, it'll be nice to have someone there to back me up that it's possible. :thup:

Congratulations all around.[/QUOTE]

Yeah, same for Smylie actually, means I can point to someone else when I get told I must have cheated.

And yeah, I can't blame you for hanging onto every record you can get :D

Everyone taking my records apart :(

I really wish I had that FM06 save still. I'd go back just to push Black to 400 international goals :p

Well done though. I think I need to find a new game to play. :(

Nep, get working on a 4000 career goalscorer once you become the NI manager :P

The current manager has to step down soon enough now surely, you get another player in who is a young prospect and you could reclaim what Smylie has lost lol. It's a shame it was FM08 you did it on and not FM07, on 07 Smylie probably would have kept going until he was in his late 40's lol.

I seem to recall Gary Neville was still the best English right back at 42 on my FM07 game lol, I bought him about 6 years prior to get a cheap first team option in whilst I looked for young prospects to find there were none that could easily be obtained, and same in the England set-up.

He kept playing for England until he was 44, and for me to the point where I ditched my save where he was 49 lol. Smylie with less degradation like on FM07 certainly would have been truly phenomenal. But yea, now Smylie is out the way, invest as heavily as you can on getting a good team around your new player see what you can do to challenge Kroblues lol.

Well, I have Cully, who is 17, and a decent prospect. Scored 76 goals in his first season, and has a fair few already this season. The only issue is, the depth in the squads of the other teams. I'm just not winning by the margins I used to, making it very difficult. Due to krob, I have loaded up my FM08 save :p (Was getting bored of FM10 anyhow, tbf) - and will carry on, in my plight to find a 4,000 goal striker. I want my records back :mad:.

Think of it as a renewed determination Nep :D

I am pretty sure it wont be long before we see another Nep Starlet flying up the scoring charts,

And i have to admit that the exploits of both you and kroblues have really made me think about having a crack at Northern Ireland, Maybe once Higgins retires i will fire up a new save and see what i can muster :D

I sense a challenge there. How about we both pick our brightest prospect from next season and see how many goals they can get? :D

Deal :D

At age 17, Cully has already hit his 100th Knockbreda goal. He has also been called up to the N. Irish squad, (but didn't play) and scored 15 goals in his last 5 games :p (2, 4, 4, 4, 1) - He tucked away 4 v Rangers in a 6-0 Champs League win, and is pretty much on a par with what Smylie was doing at this age. I REALLY need to be N. Irish manager if he's going to break Smylie / Spence's record. Otherwise, it's just never going to happen. But without doubt, I've got a 2,000 goal striker here.

Let me know when you finish this season then, although I may be a little while too. Should be interesting :D

Also, that's not a bad strike rate is it? Spence didn't really start getting past 100 goals a season until he was 19, just depends how many seasons he has at his peak.

Not 100 goals a season :p

100 goals in his Knockbreda Career :D

It's a little over a season. He has 106 goals in 63 games so far in his career.

Smylie Scored 86 in season 1, in 45 games.
Cully scored 76 in season 1, in 48 games.

Smylie scored 112 in season 2, in 57 games
Cully currently has 30 in season 2, in 15 games.

So season 1 he was a touch behind, but his goals to games ration in season 2 is JUST ahead of Smylie. If cully can bag 100 goals this season, I'll be delighted.

Ah, misread it. Even at that rate he could be heading for 1500 appearances, so at that goalscoring rate 2000 is easy [/obviousjinxattempt] ;)

Cully still going strong this season, with 44 goals in 21(1) Apps. So still at bang on 2 a game. He was injured for 1 game, and I rested him for 2 games. Want to keep him fresh, for the maximum chance of goals. Hopefully 100 goals will come this season. And when it does, I'll give it a fist pump :)

Sorry, make that 46 in 22(1) games. :p

Just for no reason, I also want you guys to know that I got a KILLER regen this season. He's a MC, and at 16, is already one of the top players at the club. I'll be amazed if he doesn't become world class.

[SIZE=4]After 13 years of hard work, complete and utter dominance & the terrorizing of every defender on the planet, Bernard Brennan has scored his 1000th goal for FC United of Manchester.

[IMG]http://i771.photobucket.com/albums/xx355/hamilton_162/Bernard%20Brennan/BernardBrennan1000FCUnitedofManches.jpg[/IMG]

[SIZE=2]And so that brings to a close the dominance of football in the lone striker position for the legend. He will now be switched with my son Marc Beckford so that Marc has a shot at getting between 1000 and 1500 goals. Probably one of the greatest players to have ever lived. [/SIZE]

Keirrison from age 20 - 35 (with 2 years in Spain during that time to boot) is close to 2,000 so that is with just 13 years. Had he been at Stoke since at 16 in the Premiership, and my chairman hadn't sold him I reckon he would have been fairly close by now lol. Leigh Stones (once Keirrison retires) will be gunning for it, he came through at 14 or 15, so I'll definitely be looking to try and get him there lol. Stones came a few years too soon though, which will lessen his overall total I suspect.

Actually looking back, you may be right. You need 137 goals a season for 22 years to pull it off, Keirrison only managed that in 5 seasons, would have been 6 for definite the year he had 85 goals by January 1st others would be speculative guesses. Bizarrely, he's broken beyond that mark more as hes got into his 30's than when he was younger and in his prime.

His 4 last seasons were 117, 170 (best ever in a season for Keirrison), 138 and 137. The 4 seasons building up to his transfer to Real Madrid where he was at his best, come in just short of with both being close to 600 goals. Seems to require a goal ratio of 2.28 across a 60 game season, his ratio for Stoke is fairly close (2.21) but his career ratio is a bit short (2.004) at times like this my billionaire tycoon chairman should be looking to have Keirrison cloned, and embark upon some youth restoring experiment.

[B][U][SIZE=5]Chris Higgins[/SIZE][/U][/B]

Having seen some signs of decline last season i was concerned that this could have been the first season that Higgins was going to drop below the high standard he had set himself, I need not have worried.

A tweak to his training schedule soon had the finishing and dribbling back to 20's and he barely missed a game, his Physical stats are declining and no amount of tweaking the training has managed to stop this, he has dropped 2 points in acceleration and agility and i dont think his pace will be far behind, still he managed to finish with his best season total to date :eek:

He passed Gareth Blacks International record :D and with the help of some poor teams in the confederations cup he has moved this on to 329, he also passed 1800 career goals so only 196 till the big 2000 so i am now getting more confident that he can make it.

Next season should see him potentially pass four more milestones, he is rapidly heading towards 350 International goals, He is close to 500 career assists and he is moving towards 1000 career appearances but the big milestone will be his 1500th goal for Tottenham which is now only 25 away.

Good news is that he has also just accepted a new 5 year contract so providing he sees that out he will be just turning 36 and i may be able to tempt him then with another 2 years, fingers crossed.

The best thing to do to keep him scoring is to set your team up so that he is the main outlet. With his assist counts, you could almost say he's providing too many goals for other team mates that he could be getting himself. Look to make slow, gradual changes as he ages and his assists should come down to just around 15 or so a season, and he should then be getting 10 - 15 goals more a season.

I've had some slight changes in tactics (who would have known. I'm actually gutted. I thought I had an A* tactic with Smylie. Made some changes, and I've go "it" back, putting 10 past teams with ease again :D )

Cully has been ON FORM this season, scoring 73 goals in 33(1) Apps. That's a much better Striker Rate than Smylie's second season. There are a MINIMUM of 27 games left this season, a max of 37. If he even bags 1 goal a game for the minimum, he'll pick up 100 goals. I'm hoping he can get about 130-140 this season, which is amazing stuff.

Epic piece of work Nep, getting another player to 3000 would be amazing. :thup: Very tempted to have a crack at Northern Ireland myself once Marc has finished his career. That is unless i find another fantastic player who could get to 1000! :D

I would assume so. They just count as league goals a player's stats.

I now have a real dilemma here. I've just found & signed for £40m perhaps the greatest 18 year old there has ever been, in the form of an AMRLC/FC by the name of Paul Childs. Now i reckon he's got a real shot at 2000 goals here, but there's a catch. I want my son to reach the 1000 goal mark, but with Childs in the main striker role, he won't reach it. On the other hand, if i try and get Marc to 1000, Childs will be about 25 by the time he gets to the main striker role, and the chance of 2000 will have well and truly disappeared.

So gents, what should i do? Get my son to 1000, or Childs to 2000? (screenie coming shortly of Childs btw :thup:)

Yep, cheers and that's what i've decided to do. :thup: Despite being a really good all-round player, Marc just isn't a real poacher of a striker, he's much better in the supporting role. I've played a few games with Childs and he's like Brennan in so many ways, but this time i've got him younger and with a firm team already established around him. He really has a massive shot at 2k, and i honestly think the Higgins' international records could be withing reach, even if he finishes at around 370 goals for England, because he's just an out and out striker.

Chris Cully still taring it up this season. He's just bagged his 99th and 100th goals of the season, against none other than Dungiven :p

So yeah, 12 goals less than Smylie, in 6 games less, but for this year, I still have 10 (maybe 11) games remaining. 120 Would be the ideal target for Cully this season. :thup:

Well of the 4 landmarks he could have reached this season, Higgins managed to achieve 3 of them,

He hit his 1500th goal for Tottenham, He got his 500th Assist and also made his 1000th career appearance,

Unfrtunately decline is really setting in now, his goal output has dropped and he barely limped past 100 goals for the season, he is now getting found out a little at international level aswell seeing his output drop massively, i am hoping it may be a blip, but could be the start of the decline i have been fearing, still 2000 goals is the aim and one more 100 goal season will see him get there, i was hoping for 400 international goals before the end but am not sure after last season, still a fantastic career and we shall see what the future holds for Higgins

He is also now just 24 goals behind kerrison :D, although he has an inferior goals per game

Also Nep, any chance of updating the all time lists at the front?

Would love to see Higgins in his rightful place :D

Owing to a faulty motherboard, Keirrison is still unable to add more to his total. He will be back once I get this sorted, it was working for about 36 hours before it died. The replacement will be here around wednesday or thursday, so don't expect too easy a ride with Higgins once I get that back :P

Of course he will eventually come out on top, Keirrison has at most 3/4 years left lol.

To be honest Santy001 i am not sure Higgins will stay ahead of kerrison for long, his decline is really statrting to look as if its terminal :(

His game was very much based on his pace and trickery and his physical stats are dropping like a stone, this season may be the water shed and i will see how he gets on but not sure he will last more than another year or two, so if you get kerrisaon back up and running i think he will probably end up ahead and fair play to him

I began to have that with Keirrison, you need to really micromanage every aspect of his game to prolong his career. Play for like 60 minutes then sub him off earlier if he has 2 or 3 to his name if there's a midweek match too. Constant tweaking to his training schedule, his aerobic is intensive though to try and stem the decline of his pace. It is a lot of effort, but at the time I started this I was trying to get Keirrison to compete with Smylie, so went all out on that front to squeeze as much out of him as I could.

As pace declines just leave his attacking mentality further and further up, reduce his creative freedom and don't tell him to wander from position. Set the other striker to hold the ball up, through balls often, try and get a striker with the PPM looks for pass rather than shot or whatever it is, and set him to targetman, ball to feet, or in the air if he's good in the air.

I want to try and prolong Keirrisons career as much as I can as well, partly because he doesn't want to become backroom staff yet lol.

Dunlop's 1,000th Knockbreda Goal.[/URL]


[U][B] Totals :[/B][/U]

[I][U] Knockbreda :[/U][/I] Games, 930 | Goals, 1,055 | Ass, 761 | MoM, 189

[I][U] N. Ireland :[/U][/I] Games, 66 | Goals, 16

Games : 996
[B] Goals : 1,071[/B]
Assists : 761
MotM : 189

So, he managed to bag as many goals this season, as last, in 2/3rds the games :D - 4 games away from a fantastic 1,000. Can't ask for more from the guy.

Just so you know, (I don't think after 2 seasons, it warrants a post yet) - Chris Cully scored 109 goals last season, which I'm delighted with. 3,000 still most definitely the target :D

The OP's have been updated, too. For the record, Smylie is still Number 1, due to the fact Spence hasn't got the EOS Update for the record yet :p

Frank Dunlop is also just 2 goals behind Paul Wallace now. The man looks like he's getting relegated to 3rd in the all time list of Knockbreda scorers :(

However, what does that say for Dunlop.! Considering he played alongside Smylie for much of his career..!!
