[quote name='deadfncat']good luck! I see ACL victory on the horizon!
also, you shoud manage Australia for a few seasons ;)[/QUOTE]

Hopefully! I'll be happy to advance past the Group Stages!

And possibly. I'm restricting myself of managing either a CONCACAF national team or a AFC national team or New Zealand. I would like to manage Australia. :)

[quote name='Jason the Yank']I just got torn apart by Wang Shouting in our Super League debut. :([/QUOTE]

You should just sign him Jason so Wang Shouting can tear your opponents to shreds. :D

[B]2020 Off-season Transfers[/B][/CENTER]

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HenanJianyeTransfers_History-3.png]Transfers[/url]

Lots of movement, partly because I didn't resign a lot of players and had to replace them.

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/QiuShengjiongProfile_PlayerAttributes.png]Qiu Shengjiong[/url] - Zeng Cheng's agent hated me, so I let him go and sign this guy who's just as good and on cheap wages

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/LiGangProfile_Attributes.png]Li Gang[/url] - new centreback who should be a solid contributor to the club

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/TianGuanghuiProfile_Attributes.png]Tian Guanghui[/url] - 3rd goalkeeper, and signing for the future

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/ZhuChenProfile_Attributes.png]Zhu Chen[/url] - depth signing

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HeHaoProfile_Attributes.png]He Hao[/url] - another centreback. He'll be a starter

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/ZhuJiaweiProfile_Attributes.png]Zhu Jiawei[/url] - probably overpaid a little but I needed some cover and he was the best option I could find with my scouts

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/RongZhouProfile_Attributes.png]Rong Zhou[/url] and [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/WangJianProfile_Attributes.png]Wang Jian[/url] are both loans with inexpensive permanent transfer options. They're mainly for cover but if they impress I would want them permanently

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/GaoDiProfile_Attributes.png]Gao Di[/url] - new starting striker. He scores more or less once every 3 games so he should get over 10+ goals this season.

[B]Asian Champions League[/B]

Group A - Al-Lekhwiya (QAT), Al-Shabab (KSA), Bani Yas (UAE), Steel Azin (IRN)

It's interesting to see that they were relegated 3 times and then on the 4th attempt they managed to win the league! Also interesting to see that they made a few signings that I did.

I overpaid for him (actually I overpaid for most of my signings this season...) But he was the best of the bunch that my scouts found. He won't be a starter but can cover a couple positions for this season.

Nahh he's already hating on himself already, along with a couple other defenders who had bad games. I'm not that mean. :)

N'Gadi isn't happy at one of my defenders though. Not surprising as he basically did most of the work in getting us back into the game just to lose because of some horrible defending in extra time.

The 'keeper has to be Chinese. So my keeper is actually one of the better ones in China...

As for defenders, it's July now so I'm looking for a good foreign one (someone who can play left back and centre back), but right now I have an offer to a fantastic young Argentine AMC but he has offers from the likes of Espanyol, Deportivo and Malaga in Spain, Bremen and Frankfurt in Germany, and Lens and Lille from France. I don't think he'll choose an obscure Chinese club from that lot. :p

I really didn't have much hope in the beginning. I couldn't beat Grampus in the group stage, so I was just hoping to keep it close. But yeah, we really need a better defensive group of players...or at least more depth. Overall I need more depth to succeed in the ACL. N'Gadi is a key player on the team, and a bargain at US$2.5k :p

Looks to be a great signing. :thup:

I've always found the Japanese teams to be the hardest to beat in the ACL, and the foreign player rules make it hard to put together a really great team outside of the top leagues. There's always next season! :thup:

Good work, I've enjoyed reading this, hoping to give the Asian league a try sometime in my journeyman save, I've got China and South Korea loaded up, just wondering how their leagues compare to the English leagues? Is the K-League similar standards to the Championship?

K-League is somewhere around lower-Championship and League 1 (around the level of play like MLS). China is around League 1/2 quality.

If some of you don't notice, I always update post #2 in this thread which has an overview of my career and some stats and other things like transfer dealings and paying agents. Have a look :)

And I'm also entering the final year of my contract so I will 'Consider my options'. I prefer to move to a bigger club in Asia, basically a big club in South Korea (my preference) or a big club in Japan (not my preference but I need that ACL title if I can't win it in China!)

[B]Henan Jianye FC vs Chinese Super League All-Stars[/B]

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HenanvCSLAllStarsSplitView.png]Henan 5-0 CSL All-Stars[/url]

Couldn't have been a more lopsided loss for the CSL All-Stars. Although having an outfield player in net for the CSL All-Stars certainly helped us. For whatever reason they (the All-Stars) didn't choose a goalkeeper...but we do technically complete the double with this win so hopefully we can play this game next year.

The off-season starts now and the goals are quite simple: just get some depth in the squad and we should have a good 2021 season.

Cheers mate!

I realized that one of my young midfielders (Chen Zhiyuan) has the same agent as Zeng Cheng, who if you recall I couldn't resign because he (as in the agent) hated me and wanted absurd demands...won't be good during the next set of negotiations. I don't even know why he hates me. :(

Semi-Final

[U]February 17, 2021[/U]
[B]Henan[/B] vs Suwon (at Reliant Stadium in Houston, home of the NFL's Houston Texans)
Philadelphia Union vs Grampus (at new Meadowlands Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Hosts the New York Giants/Jets. I think it's the new stadium...unless SI have the old Meadowlands in the DB)

I personally don't care about this tournament, but I like winning, so I will try my best to win this thing. No idea where the Final is. Hopefully on the East Coast. Hopefully anywhere but Lincoln Financial Field and Philadelphia itself. :p

Well done on winning the CSL [B]rancer[/B] :thup:. And nice work beating the All Stars!

It's interesting to see that your midfielder Chen Zhiyuan was your top scorer. It's always nice to have a 'Lampard' kind of player. I see that Jiang Zhipeng got 16 assists too from the wing. With crosses obviously coming in from the left and with Chen Zhiyuan grabbing 13 goals, does this reflect the kind of style of football you play? Or was it just a case of them being in the 'right place at the right time?'

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/JiangZhpengProfile_Attributes-2.png]Jiang Zhipeng[/url]'s performance was surprising out of everyone on my squad.

[quote name='Raware']Well done on winning the CSL [B]rancer[/B] :thup:. And nice work beating the All Stars!

It's interesting to see that your midfielder Chen Zhiyuan was your top scorer. It's always nice to have a 'Lampard' kind of player. I see that Jiang Zhipeng got 16 assists too from the wing. With crosses obviously coming in from the left and with Chen Zhiyuan grabbing 13 goals, does this reflect the kind of style of football you play? Or was it just a case of them being in the 'right place at the right time?'[/QUOTE]

Yeah, crosses and corners mainly. And the fact that Zhipeng did play every single game, because well I kinda had to since he's my only left winger. :p

I don't really expect Chen Zhiyuan to replicate this performance, because I now have 3 foreigners who are better than him...until I sell Mili that is, which I have to since he doesn't want to sign a new contract and wants to go to a bigger club.

Congratulations on the title win! Nice work! Jofre looks like a great player - shame you're going to have to let him go! Nice to have a player of the caliber for a while though. :thup:

How do you rate your chances in the next ACL tournament - now that you're the domestic champions, do you think you can start to make a real dent in the continental competition?

Are you seeing any interesting job openings? I'm secretly hoping for a move to the K-League - I had a great time there back on FM09, so I'm hoping for a vicarious return through this thread. :p

Well he contracted till 2024 but I think he's too talented for the CSL and a lot of clubs want him already. I just offered him the contract just for laughs at the time tbh...didn't realize he would take it seriously and sign with us!

I would be happy getting to the 2nd Round again, I personally don't rate our chances very highly since the Japanese clubs are really tough to beat (as I have already known by now...)

No interesting jobs yet. I wasn't even in consideration when the Urawa Reds sacked their manager, but I'll see. My primary focus is to do well with Henan this season and if a team like Suwon, Pohang, Seongnam, Busan, FC Seoul sack their manager I might fancy a move to South Korea. :)

Not a very busy transfer time as last year, but we did strengthen the squad.

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/TengShangkunProfile_Attributes.png]Teng Shangkun[/url] - nothing more than a backup

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/NiRongbinProfile_Attributes.png]Ni Rongbin[/url] - young with some potential. As you can see he's had a good start to the season.

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/MaTaoProfile_Attributes.png]Ma Tao[/url] - loaned for right back depth

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/MaJunProfile_Attributes.png]Ma Jun[/url] - very young striker with some potential

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/EvanBarbaroProfile_Attributes.png]Evan Barbaro[/url] - fills up my Asian quota but I realized he's quite down my depth so hopefully I can find a place for him soon...

I blame the dude who spit on a little girl and that crazy teen who got onto the pitch and got tasered.

If we win the league again, the 2022 Pan Pacific Championship will take place in China.

I have rejected an offer from a club in the Ukrainian First Division (Persha Liha), Volyn. The league is rated 2 stars, which is the rating of the Chinese Super League, so here are the other possible playable destinations that are 2 stars:

- Russia - Pervyj Division (2nd tier)
- Turkey - Bank Asya 1.Lig (2nd tier)
- Argentina - Primera B Nacional (2nd tier)
- Mexico - Liga de Ascenso (2nd tier)
- Ireland - Premier Division
- Holland - Jupiler League
- Austria - First Division
- Scotland - First Division
- Brazil - Serie C
- England - League One
- Germany - 3.Liga
- Japan - J.League 1
- Switzerland - Challenge League
- France - National
- Italy - Serie C1
- S. Korea - K.League

So lots of possible destinations and will be interesting what other jobs pop up in the future.

It's Henan! :p

I fancy managing in Mexico, but just not the 2nd tier league. Something like America or Chivas would be cool. Russian First Division I've managed in before but it really depends on the club. My preference is to stay in Asia and go to Japan or South Korea, but really I wouldn't mind going to any club with some potential and good setup and facilities, and preferably little or no debt. I want to see what offers are available in the summer but I'll be happy to sign a new contract at Henan if I don't find what I want.

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/RickyNakanoNews_Inbox.png]Job Offer[/url]

It seemed like a decent job, going to one of the biggest clubs in Japan, but in the end, I [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/RickyNakanoNews_Inbox-2.png]rejected[/url] the offer due to the fact I'm having a very good year at Henan and I'm still holding out for a job in South Korea.
