  1. Wing Yee - Pre-Season 2032/33 League expectation Hong Kong Premier League : Board expectation - Win the league : Media expectation - 1st (out of 11) Cup expectations Hong Kong Community Cup : Not important Hong Kong Senior Shield : Not important Hong Kong League Cup : Not important Hong Kong FA Cup : Not important Hong Kong-Shanghai Interport Club Championship : Not important Asian Champions League : Not important Asian Confederation Cup : Not important Transfer budget : £55k (last season £55k) Wage budget : £16.5k p/w (last season £21.5k) Current wage bill : £12.6k p/w (last season £14.5k) Season tickets sold : 0 (+0 from last season) My views for the season ahead… : We’ve been installed as favourites to win the league again as we aim to claim the title for a 9th consecutive season while the board are expecting nothing less than for us to win the league again. Onto a personal note and I received some unexpected news during the summer as over the course of 15 years in this save, I’ve officially become the most decorated manager in Asia as I’ve topped the Asian Hall of Fame :D. This award led to my first job offer in this save too as I was offered the Spain job, but I decided to turn it down as this isn’t what this particular save is about at the minute as I’m focusing on youth development. The only international job that I would consider in this save at the minute is the Hong Kong job.

  3. Ah...2001/02...when we used to be good!
  4. They've done well in the past couple of years and only just narrowly missed out on qualifying for the final stages of the World Cup Asian Qualifying stage by 2 points as Thailand finished as the group winners. Saying that, even if they made it to the final stages, they've still got to beat the likes of Australia, Japan and China to qualify for the World Cup! I wouldn't mind a go as manager of Hong Kong in this save...just got to wait for the job vacancy

  7. Wing Yee - Season Review 2031/32 Hong Kong Premier League/Hong Kong Premier League progress/Hong Kong Premier League fixtures : We once again ran away with the league as we finished 17 points ahead of South China in 2nd as we claimed our 11th league title. Hong Kong Community Cup : For the first time since the 2023/24 season, we lost the traditional curtain opener fixture as South China beat us 2-1 to win the Community Cup… it was South China who beat us the last time that we finished as runners-up. Hong Kong Senior Shield : We made up for last seasons early exit in this competition as we went on to beat Yau Tsim **** 5-2 in the final. Hong Kong League Cup/Hong Kong League Cup Group C : After last seasons shock exit in the semi final to Southern District, this was another competition that we made amends in as we beat South China in the final to claim our 10th League Cup. Hong Kong FA Cup : Another cup that saw us meet Yau Tsim **** in a final this season as the end result was the same as it was in the Senior Shield as we claimed the FA Cup for the 9th time. Hong Kong-Shanghai Interport Club Championship : We couldn’t make it 3 times lucky as Shanggang beat us over the two legs. Asian Champions League : We continued with last seasons Champions League at the Quarter Final stage where we met Western Sydney Wanderers, but despite us putting up a good fight in the 2nd leg, we lost 4-3 on aggregate to send us out of the competition. Onto this seasons Champions League and because of the fall in reputation of the Hong Kong league, it meant that we had to go through the preliminary rounds which saw us dispose of April 25 and Ballena Shizuoka in the 1st and 2nd rounds. We met Quanjian in the East Playoff with the winner qualifying for the group stage but the Chinese side proved to be too strong for us as they beat us 3-1, meaning that we’ll be playing in the Confederation Cup this season instead of the Champions League. Asian Confederation Cup/Asian Confederation Cup Group H : We qualified for the Confederation Cup after being eliminated from the Champions League as we were placed in Group H. We easily qualified from the group as we won all of our games and then beat Geylang Int in the 2nd round meaning that we’ll play Lebanese side Al-Nejmeh in the Quarter Final next season. Squad : Another great season from the squad of players as despite many people in the media writing Wong Ho Man (19N) off, he once again finished the season as our top goal scorer as he scored 31 goals in 39 games while also claiming the Hong Kong Premier League top goal scorer award. My son Dean Rawlings (250) also had a great goal scoring season too as he netted 21 times in 34 games as he also picked up his first international cap for Hong Kong. while Lee Wing Ho (25J) claimed the Hong Kong Young Player of the Year award and the Hong Kong Players Player of the Year award. Reserves/Under 18’s : The reserves won the reserves league for the 6th consecutive year while the under 18’s won their league too for the first time since 2024/25. Transfers : For the first time in this save, we received a substantial transfer offer for one of our players as Quanjian offered £150K for Chan Wai Chung (29E). Given that his contract was expiring at the end of the season and he was refusing to sign a new contract as he wanted to move to a bigger club, it made sense to cash in on him even though it meant that we lost one of our best players. Finances : We’re out of debt at the minute but only because of a bank loan taken out by the board and chairman. My views of the season… : While we didn’t quite match last seasons accomplishments of winning every league game, we did go the entire league season without losing game as we retained our league title. We also won the Senior Shield, the League Cup and the FA Cup while we’re still in the Asian Confederation Cup which sees us play our Quarter Final fixture next season. We were also the subject of another takeover halfway through the season as new chairman Leung Chun Wai took control of the club as he wiped out the clubs debt by taking out a loan, but unfortunately provided no other investment. My aims for next season… : The league title is a must now, especially as we’re now favourites for the title while the domestic cups will give me a chance to play more of the fringe and younger players seeing as they’re low down on the boards priorities. With the slight increase in the Hong Kong Premier League’s reputation in the Asian Competition Rankings it means that next season we’ll enter the Champions League at the 2nd preliminary round too while we’ll also be aiming to go as far as we can in the Confederation Cup to hopefully win it for the 4th time.

We did have another Brazilian come through our ranks though after the emergence of Cassio (31M) last season as Ricardo (32I) looks as if he could have a bright future, while Lo Hoi Ming (32B) , Tsang Siu Hong (32J), Wong Ho Yin (32K) and Kyren Clarkson (32N) were also offered contracts as the remaining 11 players were released from the club.
  9. Wing Yee - Pre-Season 2031/32 League expectation Hong Kong Premier League : Board expectation - Win the league : Media expectation - 1st (out of 11) Cup expectations Hong Kong Community Cup : Not important Hong Kong Senior Shield : Not important Hong Kong League Cup : Not important Hong Kong FA Cup : Not important Hong Kong-Shanghai Interport Club Championship : Not important Asian Champions League : Not important Transfer budget : £55k (last season £55k) Wage budget : £21.5k p/w (last season £21k) Current wage bill : £14.5k p/w (last season £13.5k) Season tickets sold : 0 (+0 from last season) My views for the season ahead… : For the first time ever, the media are predicting us to finish 1st while the pressure is on us slightly for the first time as the board are expecting us to win the league this season. The domestic cups are once again not viewed as important any more so it’ll give me a chance to field some of the fringe players and youngsters in these competitions while we’re not expected to achieve anything in the Champions League either as we’ll have to go through all of the qualifying rounds if we want to make it to the group stages.
  10. Thanks @a.panda I always get the older players to tutor the younger players (the older players are around 23/24 before they can tutor) so Dean Rawlings has been tutored about 4 or 5 times by Wong Ho Man and Ryan Rawlings has been tutored by various goalkeepers who were at the club earlier in the save
  11. It was slightly disappointing as it's obviously had an effect on how he's developed; he could've developed more but he's still only 21 years old so I'm hoping he's still got a bit more developing to do. I can't really complain though...I've been waiting for an in game son for so long and to get one, let alone two is something that I thought would never happen! Wong Hon Man is sadly starting to decline now he's approaching 30 years old but hopefully I can get a few more goals out of him to at least break the 150 league goal mark for the club. We've got a few good young strikers at the club still so the goals shouldn't dry up when he retires.

  14. Thanks @DazRTaylor...although I will concede that it is easier to do in a league like the Hong Kong Premier League
  15. Thanks @DodgeeD This has been a save of firsts for me ...first for having a son and now a first for winning every league game...although it is easier to achieve that in the Asian leagues because of the lack of competition in some leagues. I'll still take it though
