[FM18] Beating Greavesy - Signup Thread

Recommended Posts

For many, Alan Shearer is considered to be the highest all-time scorer in the English top-flight. However, his total of 283 is only enough to put him fifth, behind vintage legends of the game such as Steve Bloomer and 'Dixie' Dean.

The actual holder of the record is none other than Spurs legend Jimmy Greaves, with an amazing 357 goals.

It's about time that record got broken! 

Will anyone be able to come close to Greavesy?

To signup, I would like the following:

2 high technical attributes:
2 high mental attributes:
2 high physical attributes:
Up to 1 PPM:

DIsliked personnel:

All players will have a loyalty of 20, will favour their starting club and have Jimmy Greaves as an idol. I'll also give them career preferences to not want to play abroad and an adapability of 1 to try and stop them moving abroard.

Good luck!

By the way, what happens if a player still ends up getting transferred to a non-English League? And will the goal counts only be considered if it's in the English top-flight?

I've done my best to stop that from happening. Everyone has career plans saying they don't want to play in the other big leagues.

And will the goals count if the player's team gets relegated and he plays in the championship or lower in the next seasons, or goals in other competitions, etc? Sorry if I'm asking a lot. Just looking forward to this.

I guess that only Premier League goals will count as we're trying to beat "top-flight's" record.

Correct.

Hopefully the players in question will make noises about wanting to leave their clubs if they are relegated.
