First up my career history :
- Cheonan (July 2010 – January 2013)
- South China (June 2013 – present)
Hong Kong League Title : 2014 (South China)
Senior Shield : 2013 (South China)
League Cup : 2014 (South China)
Asian Conferderation Cup : 2014 (South China)
So without further ado here is how my fifth season on the game went and my second in charge of the Hong Kong based South China.
Transfers In And Out
I made a few new signings including two players who are both from Hong Kong, and one who isnt! I also smashed the transfer record by paying £350k for a player and I know I payed to much but who cares! We have the money! So lets have a look at the new players.
Lam Ka Wai
So he is a wide man and such a bonus with him being a man born in Hong Kong meaning he can slot straight into my team and I dont have to worry about any foreign status. Pretty good for a free transfer and also has a bit of experience.
So I know he doesnt look like a £350k pound defender but he is easily one of the best defenders in the league. He has spent 4 season in Hong Kong and has already got citizenship so I will have no problems with work permits or foreign status and again he will slot straight into my side.
So a foreign player! But I couldnt resist when I saw him and he is easily the best player in Hong Kong! I payed a tiny £35k for him and although he is from Chile I will work a way to get him to play as much as I can.
League And Results Half-way Point
Too easy? I guess so! my team now are defending well but also scoring for fun, I am going to win the league and again they might aswell give the trophy to us now as we have no real chance of throwing it away.
Nothing to say, were are just miles away from the chasing teams.
My First National Job!
The new manager of Morocco! I figured that it may boost my reputation in Africa if I can do well and also I just fancied a change from the lack of a challenge in Hong Kong. My team isnt too bad my best player is Maroune Chamakh and he is also very good looking! So he is my captain (for football reasons! )
The Second Transfer Window
So made only one signing as I bought this player from China. He has spent a season and a half in Hong Kong so only needs another year to gain citizenship! He will help for next year as I try again for the Asian champions league but a very good striker.
The Final League And Results
Sorry, but nothing to say! We were unbeaten all season an had a goal difference of 44 in 18 games. I am sure I could pick most of you reading this story and still easily win the league! South China is not a great place for a challenge but at least I winning things and boosting my reputation.
The top two names are my top two strikers who are just impossible to stop! Like I said most of you reading could play and probably average a high 7, its just that easy here at South China and to prove that have a look at this :
The league’s team of the year and 10! Of my players are in it…..
The Senior Sheild
Yes! A defeat! To be fair we hit the woodwork five times so we failed to defend our trophy.
The Asian Champions League
I learned a very valuable lesson from this! Always learn the rules of qualification before you start! I assumed (wrongly) that these games would be over two legs so after I got the away goal at 1-1 I defended and felt I could beat them at home. To my horror it was a single leg so we failed to qualify for the next stage.
The dream of the champions league trophy was over before it had even began!
The League Cup
I guess this shows how easy managing South China is, despite having 10 men for a huge amount of the game we ran out comfortable 3-0 winers. At least we defended our league cup trophy!
The FA Cup
Pegasus must hate us after we beat them again in the final by three goals to zero. Not much to say as Fengtao scored twice with Valle adding our third and yet another trophy.
So thats it! Am sorry its not more of a challenge, no struggles, no close games! But I really cant help the strong position I am in here at South China. However now I understand the rules of the qualification of the Asian champions league I will stay on and try to get to the group stage.
Nothing really much to add, but thanks for reading and I will post up my new season as soon as I can!
