As the Title says i will be trying the new craze that is a player story i am currently 5 years in so i know i am commited to keeping it up before i started the story thread.
To make it slighlty different to the other stories instead of being English like myself i have made him Welsh with a Scottish parent so should make it interesting if he becomes good to see the international teams fight over him!

Aims So Far
500 League Games
1000 Professional Games
100 Caps
50 International Goals

Let me know if you think he should have any other aims first update will be about his strengths and weaknesses

14 year Old Chris Tonkin

View attachment 327913

I wanted him to become a good poacher/striker in the mould of Michael Owen or on this years game Billy Sharp and Charlie Austin, someone who doesnt do incredible things but knows where the goal is.

I like to think i havent made him too much of a superstar, i have given him good stats in striking areas but he has very low stats in the likes of everything else.
He is an out and out striker and has poor midfield and defending attributes like crossing, long shots, heading and so forth.

The interesting part is he has Dual Nationality with Wales and Scotland

Well tbh they are a bit too over the top stats for a 14 year old.
Surely He will improve and by the time he's 20 or so, he will surely be 20 in everything which is 14 now....
Would have preferred him to be kept at the level from which John Price (Pricey01) started...Or for a Template U can see how Adam Campbell stats are at the Beginning of the Game, he has -9 Potential so if are going to make ur player-10 then surely he will be much better than how Adam Campbell turns out after a few years...Also have a Look at Timo Werner's profile...
Anyways these are some suggestions, so do as u feel would be best for ur player..........

I thought this too at the beginning i even mentioned it on the other 2 threads yet he has only broken in to the first team in my current season in 2018 so i thought i would give it a go he only has potential 4 star rating when i scouted him as Arsenal manager and i thought i had given him a fair few poor stats to make up for it. I will see how this turns out i have loads of data ready and info but if everyone feels this way i wont even bother to get started, i didnt want him to be rubbish but i made at least 12 of his stats only 8 or less to try and even it out, he has potential of 170 so i didnt think i even put that up too ridiculous levels, oh well never mind

Cardiff born Chris Tonkin didnt take long to change his loyalties as he plays for Scotland under 21's but until he has a full cap he is still very much up for grabs.

Dirty Side Of Youngster

View attachment 328064

In only Tonkin's 3rd game for Leicester he showed his dirty side by getting sent off in this cup game early in the second half.

This is only the beginning.

September 2012

Tonkin continues his good start at his new club playing in 8 games this month and scoring a massive 10 goals including 3 goals in 2 first team games 2 goals in 3 under 18's games and a whopping 5 goals in 3 reserve games.

First Hattrick

View attachment 328085

Impressive youngster Chris Tonkin grabbed his first career hattrick today in a game for Leicester reserves against Deby Reserves.

Brace For First Team

View attachment 328086

Fantastic brace for Tonkin in the Npower Championship against Crystal Palace to win the game for his side.

With it only being 2 months into Tonkin's career he has already amassed a massive 16 games in all competitions including 2 Scotland under 21's games lets hope he doesnt suffer with the all dreaded burnout Arsene Wenger bangs on about!

October 2012

Tonkin has a bit of a stuttering October as he doesnt start a single first team game and plays in 10 games at all levels scoring 3 goals.
He came of the bench 4 times for the first team scoring once, played 3 times for the reserves with no goals but managed 2 goals for the under 18's in 3 games

Important Under 18's Goal

View attachment 328092

Tonkin scored a very late winner here for his side against a tough Coventry under 18's

First Penalty

View attachment 328093

Tonkin's only goal for the first team came against Middlesborough scoring a late penalty to confirm the win for Leicester.

He is also yet to get back into the Scotland under 21's after a good couple of games not being involved in the last 2 matches.

In other news Sam Allardyce has already been sacked as West Ham Manager .

November 2012

First off the manager axe is sharp as AVB gets sacked from Tottenham, Dougie Freedman gets sacked from Bolton, Malky Mackay leaves Cardiff for West Ham and our very own Nigel Pearson gets the boot too.

Tonkin played 12 times this month managing 4 goals with 7 of his appearances for the first team scoring just the once, 2 appearances for the reserves with a goal, 2 apps for the under 18's with 2 goals and he also got a game for Scotland under 21's

Despite scoring a good goal against hometown team Cardiff Tonkin is unable to stop Leicester from going into the dropzone and Nigel Pearson losing his job.

Leicester Appoint Owen Coyle

View attachment 328137

The manager merry go round continued this month as the likes of Wigan, Reading and Millwall changed managers to name just a few.

Owen Coyle definetly doesnt consider Tonkin a first team player as he only plays 3 out of a possible 8 games this month.
Tonkin played 7 times this month scoring 4 goals with 3 games for the first team and only one goal. 2 for the reserves with no goals and 2 for the under 18's and 3 goals.

March 2013

Tonkin had probably his worst month of his young career so far in March.
He only played 6 games this month scoring once with 5 games being for the first team and none for the reserves it seems at least that Tonkin may be becoming a more regular fixture in the first team despite being in the Under 18's at present.

Only Goal In March For Under 18's

View attachment 328221

Tonkin's only goal this month was for the under 18's maybe a bit of fatigue is starting to kick in for the youngster who has played a whopping 71 games in various competitions this season!

Lets hope there is a Spring in his step for April

Tonkin did have a much better time for Scotland under 21's as he added to his tally with 2 goals in 2 games giving him a total of 6 games 3 goals so far.

Kazhakstan and Cyprus are hardly the biggest teams to get a goal against!

They are very small teams that Tonkin has scored against but he is definetly showing his manager he can put the ball in the back of the net!

View attachment 328368

Tonkin is hoping his impressive performances in pre season will mean he can stay with the first team sqaud and play less reserve team football.

Leicester are currently 24th in the league so i really hope we dont get relegated but Tonkin is still stuck in the Under 18's with the likes of Chris Wood and Dave Nugent underperforming.

January - May 2014

Tonkin had a blistering start to the new year scoring 16 goals in 18 games in all competitions but then picked up a bad injury in March which cut short his season.

View attachment 328994

Tonkin played a part in 8 more first team games this year scoring 4 goals, 5 reserve games and 5 goals and an impressive 7 goals in 5 under 18's games.

Impressive Under 18's Displays

I didnt know the B teams really played fixtures anymore would you guys consider this an upgrade or being dropped from the Under 21's?

View attachment 328998

Lee Clarke could not save them from the drop and with a lot of star players leaving the club it may well give Tonkin a chance to shine in League 1.

Tonkin Match Stats

View attachment 328999

With us being relegated from the Championship i thought i would show you Tonkin's Championship Stats.
He has played 56 league games out of a possible 92 games and scored an impressive 21 goals with 7 assists.

What will the new season hold for Tonkin?
