Ackter's Appearance Axtravaganza!

Recommended Posts

So yeah, in previous games I've done this and seeing as I'm actually into a game again, it's time to bring it back.

The premise is simple - get as many of your players to have as many appearances for you as possible. The ideal result is a team full of 1,000+ appearances each. You'll need to count the appearances up yourself as I still don't think there's a place that just gives you the total. As such, a picture of the player (at any age you want) and a picture of his history screen at the end of his career with you are required. You can update us about your squad progress as often as you want - though obviously the most suitable would be per-season and the least acceptable would be per-career. Obviously it's far too much effort to include screenshots of every season's full stats, so an element of trust is inherent in this challenge. It's not like you win anything so no point in cheating.

So let's get this started. I don't have much going so far, but here's my current AAA squad (haven't bothered including players with less than 10 seasons at the club):

 

  • TOTAL: Incomplete

 

Note: you can use any formation you want for your AAA squad, in my case I'm using the formation I actually play.

Only early stages for me and doubt any of these will make it, but the ones with very slight potential to make it are:

GK: None

DR: None
DC: Nicolo Armini - 55 apps
DC: None
DL: None

DM: Sandro Tonali - 118 apps

MC: None
MC: None

AMR: Kai Havertz - 63 apps
AML: Thiago Almada - 126 apps

ST: Talles Magno - 89 apps

I'm still yet to have anyone through with any actual talent.

Oh, I forgot to add probably my best chance at doing this. I signed him for £3.1m when he was 16.

Already played 13 games for me.

Actually got someone through this season who the coaches say will be great and was worth £10m as soon as he signed a pro contract, so he's gone straight into my team:

Thinking about this, don't think I've got any chance of doing this with a German team, only 34 league games rather than 38 in the other top countries and only one domestic cup competition. Still, I'll keep trying!

Yeah it's going to be tough, you're going to need about 20 seasons of going the distance in every competition possible to hit the 1,000 - though luckily I believe the German league often has players come through at 14? Or is there an age limit?

One super full season of development is already seeing huge improvements here. If he keeps developing and performing then he's going to be a superb player. Obviously at the moment he's getting carried by a world class team so it'll be great to see when he can hold his own.

They have regens at 14 but they can't play until they're 16/17 (depending on if their 17th birthday is before or after 1st Jan of the season you're in).

Ah that's not bad. Seems in England they're coming through at 17 and turning 18 before the end of their first season. I used to start players at 15 in previous versions.

I noticed in the Beta playing as Liverpool they were usually 17. I'm playing as Crewe and have had 16 year olds

Ok now this guy looks like a proper prospect. £19m on signing can't be a bad thing.

Straight into the team to replace a 34 year old Mbappe...

Slightly worried that two of my front 3 are now kids, but the third is one of the best players in the game and they're surrounded by brilliance everywhere else.

Well, his debut is definitely promising. O'Donnell has also become a wonderkid, which is fantastic.

Just posting up a bunch of players who have a good chance or are guaranteed to get into my team in case I lose the screenshots of when they were actually good. 909717695_Screenshot2019-12-21at04_33_35.thumb.png.3ee237cd82ac2a1cc2ea6bd8374d9c4c.png120342779_Screenshot2019-12-21at04_33_16.thumb.png.da655c44edb78fb50738689f4008e13d.png2025399022_Screenshot2019-12-21at04_33_02.thumb.png.92fd6908190c525af78080315eb13679.png766426818_Screenshot2019-12-21at04_31_45.thumb.png.f41c986ad6819f6c9650be9e23eee56f.png2280920_Screenshot2019-12-21at04_31_58.thumb.png.ce1803a5cc0406914accd7bdbaf7c743.png1466678472_Screenshot2019-12-21at04_32_10.thumb.png.17be6d728733b40b89669b55d544ea11.png1208801130_Screenshot2019-12-21at04_32_46.thumb.png.8929243c866b57531df154552ae8ba0f.png1854928364_Screenshot2019-12-21at04_32_28.thumb.png.a5d97e873e093365947d108beda49bf8.png

Season 2034/35 progress roundup:

  • Kosic (25) - 317 apps
  • O'Neil (25) - 151 apps
  • Kavanagh (24) - 228 apps
  • Armando (32) - 526 apps
  • Kenneh (32) - 563 apps
  • Smith (23) - 121 apps
  • Bajic (27) - 302 apps
  • Voryllas (27) - 447 apps
  • O'Donnell (20) - 177 apps
  • Williams (17) - 70 apps

I'm a little underwhelmed by how many apps these players actually have at this point, I thought they'd be higher.

Must be over 600 apps in total now, can't be bothered to count until he's done.

And Armando has called an end to his Newcastle career at the age of 35 after a staggering 746 appearances in 16 years. Could have kept going for a season or two more but wasn't interested in taking a pay cut to stay on. I'm not paying a 36 year old over 300k a week.

  • TOTAL: Incomplete

Several players who had a chance have also left the club without getting enough appearances to make it worthwhile adding them to the total.

This guy came through my youth ranks in League 1 and up until the end of last season, I always felt like I was persevering with him as the rest of the team had to carry him a bit, however, last season and this season he is our go to right winger... 20 years old and 107 appearances if you count the sub ons...

You'll need to count the appearances up yourself as I still don't think there's a place that just gives you the total.

FYI you can insert a column that shows total career appearances (so includes cups, europe etc. and not just league) so might save on counting up individual season totals.

Ah ok, it includes his appearances at ever club, not just yours, so you need to be careful with it.

I'll try to do this with Brondby in Denmark. Although only having 32 league games can be an issue! 

Have one 17-year old who got 30 games in his first season - will post a screenshot later. 

I'm just finding consistency is very difficult this year. In the season I just finished i started winning 8 of 13 games and drew the last 5. In the last 19 games of the season I won 2 or 3. Same tactics, same players and no idea of what went wrong....

4 season in and he only has 130 apps.. My team has not been good enough to get into Europe each year. Hopefully going forward I will.
 I haven't won the league yet and I'm in the 7th season. Haven't gone that long without winning it before. Can't get that consistency.

Going to pause this game after this season. I won the league at the end of the 7th season.   I'll now try this years dafuge challenge. Will start when I'm done with the current season with Brondby. Hopefully this will eventually give me someone to post here.. 

I believe Bagge has 170 apps and is 21/22.

Update: 

I'm about to start my season in League One with Enfield. Still haven't gotten any youth players to post here but will do as soon as I get one I believe can do it :)

I've been watching this one periodically from a far for a while so thought I would get myself in order and start updating.

Few Disclaimers first:

  • Playing FM19
  • Custom Built database on the Island of Sodor - basic league of 45 games, with 2 national cups (1 with legs, 1 without) and then qualification for Europe if successfull
  • I'm currently in 2041/42 season so it's fair to say that i have developed the nation a little bit - i wont go into the details of every challenge i am undertaking as this isn't the thread for this, but 1,000 appearances and 1,000 goals is something i am targetting
  • I am managing the Island of Sodor national side as well - think the San Marino challenge for this one and you'll get the concept.
  • I am exporting the data out at the end of the season so can track the games played under my management - i've so far managed 5 of the clubs out of 16 on the Islands - these appearances are across ALL clubs and national side - the condition is that I have been the manager for it to count.

The below is ALL appearances in either league, cup or Europe across the clubs i have managed them, and international games where applicable. If they are still playing i have included their profiles

  1. GLK - Mauro Perez (35) - 822 games - my 1st great hope but has announced retirement at end of the season. He's been my no.1 across a host of clubs since he was 16, but i've lost 4 or 5 years when i have moved clubs before i could sign him
  2. RB - Jesus Beuno (21) - 183 - signed at 18 and despite being wanted by a few major clubs he's under contract for the next 3 seasons
  3. LB - Charlie Harvey - 288 (RET)
  4. DM - Emin Ari (20) - 133 - wanted by every major club under the sun, I face a battle to keep him beyond the end of his contract
  5. CD - Jay Hammond - 238 (RET)
  6. CD - Moses Daka (23) - 151 - sadly has started to fade from the side so unlikely to add too many more matches
  7. LM - Scott Jackson - 330 (RET)
  8. CM - Alberto Righi - 207 (RET)
  9. SC - Armando Broja - 333 (RET) - he got 214 goals and heads up that particular list
  10. SC - Samuel Adam (24) - 209 - goal machine, but at 24 possibly a tad too old to hit the 1000 - he has 166 goals for me and is 2nd in the all time list
  11. RM - Yoshifumi Mori (22) - 227 - major hope - insane at our level (39th best league in world...) and most importantly not wanted by anyone BIG - also could qualify for Island of Sodor by end of the season

I have a host of other players not in the list at the moment who i have hopes of having a serious attack on the numbers, but will update these as and when applicable. Any questions about the above, please just ask and i will update the relevant information at the end of each season.
