Hmmm, I think Antlers would have been a good move. Hopefully, it works out for you. :)

I have to admit I am a little surprised you didn't take the Antlers job, as that would seem to be a step up. But, having said that, if you aren't sure you're ready to move from Henan then it's good you didn't, as you wouldn't want to be stuck there (Antlers) not 100% happy with the job...

Now Good Luck in proving us wrong! :thup:

[quote name='deadfncat']$11mil a year wage budget?
wait, what currency have you got it set at?
also why south korea?

They are going to lose to Australia in the Asian Cup Tomorrow :)[/QUOTE]

US dollars as always. If there's Canadian dollars I would put that but USD is close enough and professional athletes in Canada and US are paid in USD anyways.

I want to manage in South Korea because I want to travel there IRL and...I like their dramas. :D

Kdrama >>>> Jdrama

In Asian football, I've always supported China/HK, S. Korea, Japan in that order.

I looked at the squad and didn't liked what I saw. And anyways Japanese players don't get citizenship in FM so that's another factor I didn't like (and I guess you could say not having the Info tab played a part too...)

I rather go to the Urawa Reds because they're the best club in Japan and always gave my V-Varen team in FM10 a run for their money. But really it's either Henan or Suwon.

Yes, the J-League is miles better than the CSL (as in real life, even though in FM they both have the same number of stars). But right now, I'm doing well in the league, and making deep runs in the ACL and Chinese FA Cup. If I can do the triple, I think I can attract a decent job in North America, South America, or Europe (or stay for the FIFA World Cup). I haven't asked for a contract extension yet but I will soon and take myself off the manager market.

I actually can't wait for the season to end quicker enough with the 'football' we have been playing recently. I usually don't like to say FM is 'cracking' my tactics but really the team is CHOKING real bad right now. We just aren't finishing and no lucky breaks right now. A combination of injuries, goals drying up, and late goals and penalties are costing us points. Not many games left but is time for the other clubs to pass us.

Hopefully we get some momentum before the ACL quarter-final matches...

EDIT: woot I won again. First win in like forever \o/

I think every season you end going through a rough patch when nothing goes right for your team. Weather its results, injuries etc.

[B]Chinese FA Cup[/B] - [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HenanJianyeHenan_Fixtures-7.png]Winners[/url] - We finally got past the first round against a tough opponent...and managed to go all the way, winning [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/ShenhuavHenanSplitView.png]1-0[/url] in the final.

Of course I am a little disappointed we didn't win the whole thing, with a disappointing away loss to Persepolis in the Semis but it's something to build on for next season.

[B][URL=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HenanJianyeTransfers_History-6.png]Transfers[/URL][/B] -

Lots of players in, but I think only these two really can help us short term or long term:

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/SuShiliangProfile_Attributes.png]Su Shiliang[/url] - I'm very impressed by his performance, and I got him on 2 year loan and another year for him to impress me

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/SongBoxuanProfile_Attributes.png]Song Boxuan[/url] - Getting up there in age, but he can still play in the CSL effectively

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/EvanBarbaroProfile_Attributes-1.png]Evan Barbaro[/url] - didn't play much, but he's apparently leading CSL quality, so once Mili is gone he should be a starter...

[B][url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HenanJianyeHenan_Players-3.png]Squad[/url][/B] - Lots of players, and lots of games, 50 to be exact. [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/ZhangHongxingProfile_Attributes-1.png]Zhang Hongxing[/url] was the only one to play all 50 games. My midfield consists of foreigners [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/TwitMiliProfile_Attributes-5.png]Twite Mili[/url] and [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/MaximilianoJofrProfile_Attributes-1.png]Maximiliano Jofre[/url], both who are fantastic talents, although I probably have to sell the former to avoid losing him for nothing. [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/GaoDiProfile_Attributes-2.png]Gao Di[/url] and [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/AlphaNGadiProfile_Attributes-3.png]Alpha N'Gadi[/url] were the other two players with over 10 goals. Overall the squad is very much balanced we could always use some elite Chinese talent at the club.

Great job winning the league and congratulations on the impressive ACL run - an ACL championship can't be far around the corner. What's more, it looks like this season has fully justified your decision to stay at the club. :thup:

I know I've said it before, but Jofre looks like an excellent player - any chance of finding a couple more Jofres with your $11.8m transfer budget?

I have the best foreigners in the league, but other teams have slightly better Chinese talent (because we can't develop our own...). However, the clubs have been selling their young talented ones to Europe so I think we can continue to do well in this league.

The facilities are average training and youth facilities (with academy), and basic youth recruitment network. One part I haven't placed much emphasis on is through developing our own youth players into first team players because we had no youth talent so hopefully we can get better ones soon.

Training and youth facilities are currently in the planning stage and should be completed on January 10, 2022.

- go back home to TFC

- take my talents to South Beach! Sorry I just had to say it ;)

Yeah, Kashima Antlers finished 12th so I reckon I made a good decision, although during our losing streak I wondered whether I would want to stay for so long but we won the double so I'm happy at Henan. :)

And Jofre was a free transfer signing, and I usually don't try and sign foreigners unless they're elite. I don't mind overpaying for Chinese talent since everyone overpays but I'm more careful with foreigners since I only want the best.

This game was probably the easiest game of the year, although it was technically classified as a non-competitive game and like all the other All-Star games it's an exhibition, but the scoreline says a lot about the quality of the CSL All-Stars...they had a goalkeeper at least this time though.

We have won the treble this year, the league, the cup, and the all-star game. :)

A wage budget that I might not really even use...mainly because I don't really have anyone to buy that are Chinese...

Pretty much going to be the same players, most players I will probably buy are for the future because we don't have any young talent coming through the youth system. Also looking for a young Chinese GK who would be the new #1 eventually since my starter and his backup are in their 30s.

Yes, this year the Pan-Pacific Championship is in China...but at least we have home field advantage. :)

Semi-Final

Henan vs LA Galaxy (at Chongqing Olympic Sports Centre, Chongqing)
Grampus vs Ulsan (at Guangdong Olympic Sports Centre, Guangdong)

----

[B]AFC Champions League[/B]

Group A: Al-Arabi (QAT), Al-Hilal (KSA), Al-Wasl (UAE), Esteghal (IRN)
Group B: Al-Gharrafa (QAT), Al-Nassr (KSA), Bani Yas (UAE), Sepahan (IRN)
Group C: Al-Ahli (KSA), Al-Ain (UAE), Bunyodkor Toshkent (UZB), Paas Hamedan (IRN)
Group D: Al-Dhafra (UAE), Al-Ittihad (KSA), Nasaf (UZB), Persepolis (IRN)
Group E: Chanba (CHN), Grampus (JPN), Persema (IDN), Seoul (KOR)
Group F: Adelaide Utd (AUS), F Marinos (JPN), Shenhua (CHN), Ulsan (KOR)
Group G: [I][B]Henan (CHN)[/B][/I], Reysol (JPN), Seongnam (KOR), Sriwijaya FC (IDN)
Group H: Melbourne Victory (AUS), Shandong (CHN), Suwon (KOR), Urawa Reds (JPN)

Our group isn't that bad. We avoided the Group of Death in Group H. Poor Melbourne is up against powerhouse Shandong who only finished 3rd because of Chanba and us, Suwon, who are usually the best in South Korea (in the game and IRL up there with Pohang), and Urawa Reds, who are just as good as league winners Grampus. Other than Sriwijaya FC we are not facing the league title winners so hopefully it all goes smoothly.

I think we're as good as any domestic team in the AFC. Twite Mili is going to leave the club after the season (I'm going to sell him since his contract is expiring and he has no interest in resigning) so I want to win it while he's still here. And I don't want to extend my contract again because I'm itching to play in the Club World Cup and I want to take my talents to a new club soon.

I'm not surprised. All the English teams were having trouble in Europe! Man Utd finished 4th and couldn't even get to Champions League! None of the English teams advanced past the Champions League 1st Knockout Round or Europa League Quarter-Finals! La Liga have also overtaken the Premier League as the best league in the world.

And in my FM10 career game with Stuttgart, Germany would have taken over England in the coefficient rankings if I played one more season and did well.

I have also applied for vacant managerial jobs at Japan, S. Korea, Canada, and the US so hopefully I hear something from them. I've already been snubbed by Canada once before in this save already so we will see.

Ivory Coast already won the world cup in 2014 in my game. :)

I actually prefer Japan or South Korea, partly because I managed Canada in FM10 already and I want to learn Japanese or Korean before I leave Asia. I can always get the Canadian job later. :p

I thought Henan would just be a springboard job in Asia, but I'm doing well against the Korean and Japanese teams so I'm probably not going to move to a club job there, which means national job is my only hope.

In order of preference it's S. Korea > Canada > Japan > USA.

Japan - Takahiro Masukawa
Canada - Atiba Hutchinson
USA - Bradley...Michael Bradley :D

Slightly disappointed I still can't get a national job, but there's always next time...the four above all got better managerial CV's than me anyways. Winning the ACL is a priority since I'm starting to get itchy feet here...

Unusual that England lose a Champions League spot in the game.

So, Senegal are the shock winners of the World Cup.

That's shocking! I'd love to see the day that Senegal can knock out Brazil! (Hopefully without that to$$er Diouf though!)

Not really that surprised tbh. The Bundesliga is always strong in my games, and since I don't play in England, they usually overtake the Premier League or Serie A as part of the top 3 leagues in the world.

No Diouf to worry about thankfully. :)

In other news, I got passed over by 180-something-th ranked Hong Kong for a newb who only managed at Kitchee before getting sacked. :mad:

Unlucky!! It may just be me, but I've noticed it's a lot harder to get international jobs in FM11 than it used to be. I'm sure someone will take a chance on you sooner or later though! :thup:

[b]rancer[/b], what was your rep as a player before you started coaching? I've become increasingly of the opinion that the international jobs don't go easily to those who didn't make a name for themselves as a player, unless they have really made a splash as a coach. I got passed over for Wales, Wales U-21 and Wales U-19, despite being far and away the best coach in Wales for some time now. I have Sunday League experience, so I think that's hampering my efforts.

I'm debating whether to start with a U21 national team. But yeah I realized it's a lot harder to get a job, whether club or international.

Sunday league. I'll try applying to Vanuatu when it becomes available. If they don't even hire me then this is definitely a bug! :mad:

I was offered the Paraguay job in my game (before I'd won anything with Wanderers). Apart from that, I've only been approached by U21 and U19 teams.

[B]2022 End of Season Review[/B][/CENTER]

[B][URL=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/PirelliChineseFootballAssociationSuperLeagueInformation_LeagueTable-5.png]Standings[/URL][/B] | [B][URL=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/PirelliChineseFootballAssociationSuperLeagueInformation_PastPositions-4.png]Past Positions[/URL][/B] | [B][url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HenanJianyeHenan_Fixtures-9.png]Fixtures 1[/url][/B] | [B][url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HenanJianyeHenan_Fixtures-2-2.png]Fixtures 2[/url][/B] - We didn't have a horrible league season, but we just didn't get enough wins. Not losing any sleep over this though. At least there's no useless Pan-Pacific Championship to worry about!

[B]Chinese FA Cup[/B] - [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HenanJianyeHenan_Fixtures-10.png]Lost in 2nd Round[/url] - not really surprised anymore. I never did well in this cup anyways.

[B]Asian Champions League[/B] - [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/AFCChampionsLeagueInformation_Stages-3.png]Group Stage[/url] | [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/AFCChampionsLeagueInformation_Stages-2.png]Knockout Rounds[/url] | [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HenanJianyeHenan_Fixtures-11.png]Fixtures[/url] - I'm still in shock, but we have finally done it! And we beat Shandong on [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/ShandongvHenanSplitView.png]penalties[/url], a team we couldn't beat twice in the regular season. All the goals were from the penalty spot too. :D

[B]Club World Championship[/B] - [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HenanvAucklandCitySplitView.png]Quarter-Final[/url] | [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/HenanvSevillaSplitView.png]Semi-Final[/url] | [url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/EtoileduSahelvHenanSplitView.png]Final[/url] - Fantastic work here. In the Quarter-Final, I met my old club Auckland City, and quickly disposed of them with ease. However, in the Semi-Final, we met the UEFA Champions League winners Sevilla, but for once I listened to my ass man to play a deep line, with a slow tempo. If they can't get the ball, they can't score right?!?! The players executed my tactics to perfection, but next is the final, against the surprising champions of the CAF Champions League, who defeated Cruzeiro in the other semi. It was an even match but we played our brand of football and ultimately came on top! I'll take the CWC and ACL wins over a league and FA Cup title!

5 new signings, 2 for the present, and 3 for the future:

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/LiChengProfile_Attributes.png]Li Cheng[/url] - hefty salary, but at only $80k he's worth the risk. Was doing well before he tore his hammy against Shandong

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/SuShiliangProfile_Attributes-1.png]Su Shiliang[/url] - he's probably not worth the $1 million+, but he's versatile and very valuable to the team, with leading CSL potential

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/ZhangXinyuProfile_Attributes-1.png]Zhang Xinyu[/url] - young lad with good potential

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/WangBinProfile_Attributes.png]Wang Bin[/url] - I think he can start playing some games full time next season

[url=http://i287.photobucket.com/albums/ll131/rancer890/FM11%20Career%20Game/AlijaHalilovicProfile_Attributes.png]Alija Halilovic[/url] - not really high on him. Will see how he develops

Cheers. Won't leave the club just yet though. Need to sign them some replacements because we all know how horrible the AI are at ruining the squads we all worked so hard to build...and then resign and find a new job. :)
