AFC Champions League 2018

My first adventure in the Asian Champions League nearly made me quit Beijing and move back home. I was all geared up and ready to play my first match when the bomb shell dropped. Half of my team were on International duty. I had NO team, but we took to the field anyway.

As you can see I had 11 players, no subs against a very good South Korean side. The worst happens on 45 mins. My Right Back gets carried off. The 2nd half we only have 10 men. To top it all off in the 83rd minute my striker joins my right back on the treatment table. 9 men.........

How we won I don't know.

Those are great shirts. And a great performance in the group stage, to boot. Well done!

Will you be jumping back into European football at the first opportunity or are you planning on keeping your Asian adventure going for a while?

Tough question there Arsenal. I'm having a great time in Asia but I wouldn't mind playing in a better standard of league. Once my Champions League is over I will decide what to do next.

Have enjoyed reading this career thread and got excited when I saw you had taken over at Bristol City but a shame it didn't work out :(

Still, doing great in China!

It was a shame it never worked out at City, but I won't mind another shot at them some day. Loving Beijing at the moment, would really like to become an International manager soon aswell.

We can dream rancer, it's tough though because I can only field 4 out of 7 subs every game.

Good win in the ACL and nice work in the CSL. Do I hear muted whispers about a double?

Just read the whole of this thread, I'm well impressed with what you've done so far and you are making good progress in the ACL as well!

Good luck with the rest of the season :thup:

Great first leg, sets me up nicely for the return leg in Japan, what could possibly go wrong. [oops]

Oh dear, we were battered, this is the worst I think Beijing have played since I've been here. BUT!!!! AWAY GOALS RULE. We left it a little aswell.

Very close game, it's going to be tough in the 2nd leg with there away goal.

Semi Finals 2nd Leg

Removed by Tinypic

What a great game, after going 1-0 things didn't look good for us. But we dug in and fought back. Now for the biggest game of my career to date.

The team I didn't want. Don't ask me why though, I've never heard of them.

Amazing win in the ACL. Are you going to end on a high or take them further?
