  1. Cheers mate, its been a long time coming, but finally able to add something to the Trophy Cabinet! Here is an image, we are working on facility upgrades so hopefully things will look a bit better on that front soon.
  2. Annoying as I cant centre align the video, so apologies for the out of sync layout on this post.
  3. 2032 Pre-Season The focus was on trying to balance the books a little, but once an opportunity appeared to sign Chilean International Matias Perez from Colo Colo, we again spent more than we could afford. We would let go of Mario Ponce this pre-season, selling him to Everton (CHI) after 200+ games and 7 years at the club. First Half A mixed bag of winning runs and away defeats. as all 5 of our losses in the first half of the season came on the road. It was that inconsistency that kept us out of the top 3 race, but with 8 wins to go with those defeats, we put up enough point
  4. 2031 Pre-Season Probably the biggest transfer window of any Chilean team.. ever! We would spend over $10,000,000 renovating the squad, as we pushed boundaries and took a gamble that we can make a profit on any future fees. However this season showed how that can backfire, Jorge Figueroa who you may remember we signed in order to re-sell quickly at a profit? Well he walked away this year on a free transfer to Atletico Tucuman, a sign, if any, of the financial tightrope you can walk in South America. We did bring back a former player in Yerko Galdames (again a player who left
  5. 2030 Pre-Season We would lose our strike force this pre-season as Claudio Rojas chose to sign a pre-contract with Everton, whilst we cashed in on Argentine Andres Arana for $2,000,000 as we balanced the books after 4 additions. Chilean Internationals Mario Santos, Jonathan Castagnoli and Camilo Sesma would come in, whilst we also gambled on Brazilian wideman Jose Marcilio to make the adjustment to Chilean football. First Half This was probably our worst start to a top flight campaign, as after 10 games we found ourselves embroiled in a relegation battle, losing 7 of ou
  6. 2029 Pre-Season A book balancing pre-season for us as we made a net profit of around $2,500,000 in the transfer market, selling Enrique Martinez for a club record $3,500,000 to Chinese outfit Hebei. We would also lose highly rated Yerko Galdames for nothing to Colo Colo, a bit of bad business on our part as just a year earlier we rejected a $1,500,000 bid from the same club. Income highly rated stopper Marco Guzman, as he had recently broke into the National team setup. Whilst we finally got our hands on Eduardo Soto from Colo Colo a player we had been chasing for a couple
  7. 2028 Pre-Season It has been a successful era under Fabian Poblete but he hands over the reigns to Osvaldo Jimenez as we move forward looking to take the next step in our development. With a new man in charge, he immediately set out to impress the fans by loosening the financial restraints, allowing us to spend over $4,000,000 on domestic based players. However it would be the loss of Jaime Carreno that made the major headlines at the club as he chose against renewing his contract and took leave of the club for the 2nd time. It was a huge blow and hole to fill once more
  8. 2027 Pre-Season 2 in, 2 out this pre-season as we had a net spend of around $400,000 bringing in attacking options Jaime Diaz and Andres Arana. However it was our outgoings that made more headlines as we cut our losses on $2,000,000 man Gonzalo Echeverria, as he scored just 9 times in 90 games for the club. Alongside that we also made our minds up on Facundo Labandeira as after his 18 goal effort in 2025, we saw little positives from him as his 3 goals in 2026 meant we decided to move toward a new approach. First Half Onto the season then and our opener couldnt have be
  9. Thanks for reading, appreciate the feedback, glad you are on board and hope I can do Santiago Morning and Chile proud Cheers mate, appreciate you taking your time to read and post. I hope to bring a bit of detail and information to how things are going on an annual basis, but feel free to ask anything about the team or save as well
  10. 2026 Pre-Season Once again off field news headlined our pre-season as confirmation of the new stadium, its cost, name, capacity and all the intracacies around it have been announced. In 2028 we will open our new Stadium, named after club legend William Marin. We then doubled down our efforts for success on the pitch. The promise was, we had to be competing at the top end by the break to ensure that we kept the squad together. So with that in mind, $2,300,000 was invested and 8 new faces joined a squad that had seen a gaggle of players released including former fan favourite
  11. 2025 Pre-Season With the prospect of more Libertadores funds coming our way and a small increase in the TV rights for the Campeonato Nacional, we made the call to improve the squad arguably beyond our means. This involved spending $2,500,000 on 3 new faces (well 2 and a free transfer) as our most notable deal saw $1,900,000 spent on highly rated Chilean wide-man Mario Ponce who we managed to get out of old foe Union Espanola. First Half For 11 games we were the leagues best team, no doubt. We topped the table with 9 wins, we had beaten 'La U', we had conceded just 4 go
  12. 2024 Pre-Season Investment into the club continued off the pitch with the President committing to over $500,000 of advancements to both the training and academy facilities. Alongside this, we invested heavily into the squad, using the money raised from our Copa Libertadores adventure to try and fund another run towards qualifying for the competition. We did start our pre-season with a sale as Botafogo paid us $1,500,000 for Uruguayan Ignacio Laquintana, boosting our coffers even further. In return we would add 3 new faces, Chileans Baeza and Nieto would arrive to bolst
  13. 2023 Pre-Season A bit of a rebuild for us here as we spent most of our upcoming Libertadores money on 7 new faces to bolster the squad. We lost Ezequiel Fernandez back to Boca as his loan expired, but added depth and spent a club record $475,000 on Facundo Labandeira as the Uruguayan adds more depth to our attacking options. We still await our first batch of Morning academy prospects with the club investing as we go towards our long term future. First Half Combining our league efforts alongside the a run in the Libertadores proved to be alot tougher than we had planned
  14. 2022 Pre-Season A less eventful pre-season for us as the club had stabilised under new ownership as we prepared to compete both domestically and on the continental front in the coming season. We made just 2 changes to the squad this year, bringing in young Argentine Ezequiel Fernandez from Boca Juniors on loan to anchor the midfield. We also added a backup Keeper in Chile U21 starlet Luis Ureta in a £150,000 deal from O'Higgins. Outside of that we held on to our better players with Jaime Carreno, Juan Zurbriggen and the veteran Pablo Hernandez who participates in his last y
