Giroad to Glory | A Giroud RTG

So for those that kept saw my Inzaghi RTG a few years ago then this will be familar to you. Basically, the only fun I get on this game now is using Olivier Giroud and the man keeps getting special cards so here I am! As you'll all probably know, I struggle to stick with teams ( :trollface: ) but I do find that documenting and tracking my progress really does help me to stay interested and to not take the game as seriously as I normally would. That being said, a few ground rules to begin with:

1) Olivier Giroud must play EVERY game

2) Only FRENCH players can play in matches

3) Only players that are packed or from SBCs can be used

4) After every game, the three WORST rated players will be dropped for the next match



So, I will be starting with Giroud, two French Icons and a silver IF which I have in my club (if you think I should really start from scratch then let me know and I'll work towards Desailly and Makélélé instead). Obviously every player I have to use has to be packed pulled so I'll be spending every coin I can muster on upgrade packs and taking untradeable packs from rewards each week.

And we're off! I'll update with each game I play with a report style match summary and I'll also update with any French player pulls. 81+ player picks are out at the moment as I'm starting this so hopefully it won't be long before there's some more gold players in the squad!

    So, not a great first start to the RTG but at least we scored. It may take a while for us to find our feet whilst my SR places me against teams my team can't actually compete against. We had an awful start was 3-0 down in just over half an hour but we managed to see it to half-time without conceding again. Giroud showed up in the second half with two quick goals to put us within one of our opponent but we couldn't stop the pace of Rooney and Mbappé from scoring again before Giroud completed his hattrick with a powerful header from a Claude Makélélé corner. We conceded twice again before FT with Rooney grabbing his hattrick and Raphinha scoring the last of the match.

    Quite a tricky decision. Thauvin would no doubt help Giroud in the attack a lot but I went for Mendy as I feel that the defence needs the improvement more than the attack. Our starting left back was probably the weakest position whereas Nsona didn't do too bad in our first game in RM.

    A GK was desperately needed! We faced 9 shots on goal in our first game and conceded 7 so this will definitely help! :)

    Playing against R9 is not what I need right now and he and Neymar ensured a torried 90 minutes for us. Alexis Trouillet became our first non Giroud scorer after a Da Cunha cross was poorly cleared into his path. This was short lived a Neymar and Ronaldo combined to score 3 past us before half time. In the second half, Mike Maignan produced a good save or two to keep the scoreline lower but couldn't stop Neymar from grabbing his hattrick just 8 minutes after the restart. Giroud had to good efforts saved by Van der Sar before Ronaldo grabbed his second of the game on the stroke of full time. All in all, a poor game in reality; Giroud snatched MOTM away from an impressive Trouillet whilst Benajmin Mendy struggled down his side against a rampant Arjen Robben.

    A bit of a teaser just for the time being..

    I'm not spoilering the second gif because what Giroud did to Fofana and Puyol is actually criminal :lol: Shut your legs Fofana! :wink:
