I started out with Glenfield Rovers in the New Zealand 1st Division in September 2011

Yeah the format is a bit **** for the first few years until I catch up with the game.

The club is amateur. No wages :cool:

Had to build a squad from scratch because we were full of grey players. I started off bringing in a few South Americans but then learned that you can only play 4 foreigners at a time !

I cobbled together a pretty good squad. I kept an eye on the NZ Premiership 'Transfer Rumours' page and tried to get in quick.

I am playing a weird asymmetric formation.

Its a flat back 4. A DM centre right. A midfielder centre left, and a left midfielder. Then a AMR and AMC and then a striker slightly to the left

AMR Jean Silva is a ****ing beast. As is the central midfielder Genivaldo. Striker Aaron Burgess got most of the goals - he is old though. Old.

In the 1/4 finals of the cup I played a Prem team. Took a 3-0 lead in the first half of the second leg. Finished 3-3. Out on away goals.

Lots of squad turnover because we are amateur innit. Turned semi-pro in preseason though which was great.

I did have a screenshot of the transfers here but you are only allowed 4 images so I cut it out.


Started the season terribly with two losses without scoring a goal and then I go and beat last seasons top 2 2-0 and they were away games too !

And then this happened.

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/Glenfield-Fixtures-2.png[/img]

So yeah what a season,

And then THIS happened

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/JobChange.png[/img]

Like a dirty traitor - I swapped Glenfield for WAITAKERE UNITED. I felt terrible, but it had to be done.

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/Waitakere-fixtures.png[/img]

So I, yes [b][i][u]I[/u][/i][/b] won a treble

I only noticed they had no manager a few months ago, I dont know how long they had been gaffer-less.

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/Leaguetable.png[/img]

2 seasons down.

****ing 3rd season. First full season with Waitakere.

Signed a few players from my old club, got a few GKs and a shitload of foreigners who look great.

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/Waitakere-fixtures-2.png[/img]

We are just inexplicably **** haha

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/W.png[/img]

The game I highlighted was the last of the regular season and we scraped into in the top 4 on goal difference :D

Finished 4th with 25 points :D Drew HALF of our games.

Gutted, absolutely gutted.


We won the O-League which is nice but I still want to stay. TO SUCCEED !

I improved the squad in the off-season bringing in a new pile of foreigners who look brilliant and a New Zealand striker who is young, but looks good. We went semi-pro too. Bit late.

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/Waitakere-fixtures4.png[/img]

That young striker, Chris Fraser has been good. LM Ivan Lescano has also been getting lots of goals. As you can just about see, I went out of the cup. Am top of the league though.

The top 4 are Us, Waitako, Team Wellington, YoungHeat. We are 6 points clear and there is 6 games to play.

YoungHeart (A) 2-3
Team Wellington (H) 0-2

Lost the first two games. Now its level (with Waitako)

Waitako (A) 1-0

:djmac:

YoungHeart (H) 2-1

We were 1-0 down until the 70th minute and the winner came in the 92st. Waitako only drew.

:djmac:

Team Wellington (A) 2-3

Waitako score a last minute winner.

I am 2 points clear.

Didnt bring in many new starters this year. Should help with team blending or whatever.

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/waitakere-fixtures-5.png[/img]

Well a few disappointing results. I dont remember where we were in the league at this point. Doing well in the cups. O-League is very easy.

This can **** off though. Coming anywhere but 4th would be some achievement.(I now have a file called 'saudi finances' on my laptop now, cant be good)

Somehow this side won the league last year, squad looks terrible so I dunno how that happened.

Lots of teams in this league have (KSA) after their name. I will not be typing it. Just so you know.

I joined after 9 league games. The team had 4 wins, 3 defeats and 2 draws. They also went out of the ACL during this time at the 1/4 final stage

Al-Ra'ed (H) 2-1
Al-Nassr (A) 0-2
Al-Wahda (H) 4-0
Al-Jabalain (A) e2-1 CROWN PRINCE CUP 4th Rnd
Najran (A) 0-1
Al-Riyadh (H) 3-1 CROWN PRINCE CUP 5th Rnd
Hajer (A) 2-0
Al-Taawun (H) 2-0
Al-Ahli (H) 1-1
Al-Ta'ee (H) 3-1

My first 10 games. The cup was easy. One was a 2nd division side and the other was a first division side. We should have won much more comfortably actually The defeats were *****. The first one there agains Nassr - two own goals and we just played **** against Najran I dunno. Gutted we couldnt beat Ahli who are a good side. They had a man sent off right after half time while winning 1-0 and we just barely scraped the equaliser.

We are in a battle for 4th. Which is the last CL place. Or we could win the cup.

Was fuming after the cup game. There was nobody left in the last 8 that was in the top half of the Prem league. Should have won the whole thing. Was well beaten by Al-Hilal. I holidayed the Al-Ain game thinking that ACL qualification was basically done. oh dear. Draw a fair result against Al-Ittihad.

Dont know what happened against Al-Sadd It put us in an awkward position but because we beat Sepahan we topped the group !

We were quite lucky to beat Al-Jazira, they had loads more shots and stuff but it was even enough.

The battle for 4th went on until the last day. End of season screenshots/season review type thing coming up. Even though we finished 4th, we did not qualify for the ACL, I only realized this a few months later :D Some mid-table side won the cup so they got the 4th spot.

Took hold of the New Zealand national team on the 6th July 2017 :bowdown: Back to where it all began. Going to stay until I win the OCE Nations Cup which is in 2020 :)

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/Saudileaguetable.png[/img]

Winning the league is MILES away at this stage. If I ever achieve it at this club it would be a great achievement.

Squad for this season is as follows

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/Squad.png[/img]

[b]Al-Mutlaq[/b] has 20 caps for Saudi Arabia ALREADY ! 7 goals for his country. Scored 8 in 26 last year in the league. 10 assists. Good player.

[b]Al-Khaibary[/b] has 6 in 11 for his country. Got 15 in 20 last season and is our central striker 17/16 for pace/acceleration which is good to have :D

[b]Maierstein[/b] came to us after his contract expired at Leverkusan and he looks like a beast. Has 2 appearances for Germany U21s. 19 work rate, 16 for penalties, and a name like Maierstein HOW GERMAN IS THIS GUY :king:

[b]Al-Khaibari[/b] came to us on a free from the team who came last in the league last year but he is 18 and has impressive mental stats. Future captain maybe, I dont know how much of a role he will play this year.

[b]Mario Torres[/b] has 26 caps for Panama at 19 which is ****ing mental. He arrived and could not settle (A Panamanian in Saudi Arabia WHO KNEW) so fingers crossed he sorts himself out with this 'leave of absence' and comes good. Has a bit of flair and a brilliant first touch.

[b]Tugay Sokucu[/b] was my first signing ! I got him on a free and he played 9 games last year. He was chosen as the 4th foreigner because of his versatility.

[b]Fernando[/b] played for Bordeaux for years and joined Al-Shabab for £5M in 2011-12 but he is old as **** and this is his last season. Our captain.

Enjoyed writing that out, I got to know my players better !

[I][U]August/September Update[/U][/I]

Al-Ittihad (A) - A **** start to the season against the reigning champions. They scored first but we pegged them back just before half time. It stayed that way until stoppage time when they nicked it. [b]1-2[/b]

Al-Ettifaq (H) - They had a man sent of after 10 minutes but then the Panamanian Torres gets himself a second yellow for a dive :D We took the lead a few minutes later and Maierstein blasted in a second in the second half to clinch it. [b]2-0[/b]

Shandong (H) [b]ACL 1/4 FINAL 1st Leg[/b] - Excellent start as we take the lead after 12 minutes with a header from a corner. We suffer a big blow when Al-Shibani has to go off injured and is replaced by an 18yr old. The Chinese get a man sent off on the hour and 5 minutes later the 18 yr old, Al-Aboosh makes it [b]2-0[/b].

Al-Shoalah (A) [b]CROWN PRINCE CUP 2nd Rnd[/b] - These lads got promoted last year so we should handle them but they take the lead after 2 minutes. We were playing terrible, must be a continental hangover as it is just 3 days after that game. Fitness is an issue already with so many games. We get a red card with 20 minutes to go and they finish us off 10 minutes later. **** off. [b]0-2[/b]

Shandong (A) [b]ACL 1/4 2nd Leg[/b] - Only 4 days after the cup disappointment. 18yr old Al-Aboosh gives us the lead after a minute but they score one on each side of the break and I start to think we are going out but the old head Fernando settles our nerves with 65 gone. Al-Mutlaq makes it 3-2 on the night with 82 gone and that is that. [b]3-2[/b]. LAST 4. CMOOOOOONNNNNNN

Al-Ta'ee (A) - Beaten[b] 3-2[/b], don't want to talk about it. Torres scored though which is a positive.

We sit 12th out of 14 in the league. Out of the cup. ACL is the only bright spot.

[i][u]October/November Update[/u][/i]

Al-Qadisiyah (A) - [b]4-2[/b], another goal for the young lad Al-Aboosh, one for Al-Mutlaq and a pen for Torres.

Al-Wahda (A) Oh **** this Torres lad might be the real deal. Scores twice in the first half, the second after a lovely little run. [b]2-0[/b]

Pohang (Korea) (A) [b]ACL 1/2 FINAL 1st Leg[/b] - We froze. They battered us. They took the lead after 10 minutes, should have been tie over at half time but they were dirt in front of goal. They won 19-3 on shots but the final score was only [b]0-1[/b]

Pohang (A) [b]ACL 1/2 FINAL 2nd Leg[/b] - We have to make the most of this opportunity, we shouldn't still be in this but we are. After 24 minutes we had a corner cleared but it was worked back in and Al-Mutlaq stroked home a tap in. All level now. Just 14 minutes later and Al-Mutlaq turned creator with a little dink over the top for his strike partner Al-Khaibary to finish and as it stands we would qualify. Pohang began to cause us more problems after half time and after an hour a cross comes in from the right, as soon as it left his foot I paused it, I could see him lurking at the back post. Kadodia the South African striker who bossed the first leg was free and duly put it in. In the 84th minute I thought a header was sneaking in but the keeper kept it out. That was it. Out on away goals. ****ing gutted. [b]2-1[/b]

Hajer (A) - UGH, Tugay Sokucu sent off after half time, they scored 5 minutes later. We were utter utter ****. [b]0-1[/b]

Al-Hilal (A) - Tough game but we need to sort ourselves out. They took the lead after 7 minutes. Here we go again. Yet another red card after 2 minutes (Tackling isn't even on red, ****ing game) but we equalize a minute later and hold on for a [b]1-1[/b]

Al-Ahli (H) - **** game, Fernando got sent off for a clever foul when they were through on goal. So yeah another red card, another game where we dont win. The two themes of the season. [b]0-0[/b]

Al-Fateh (A) It is looking like more disappointment and more dropped points until the 82nd minute when Al-Khaibary broke through and finished :bowdown: No red cards ! 5 yellows though, dunno why we get so many cards ??? [b]1-0[/b]


We are 7th in the league, but with a game in hand on a few teams above us. Season is over though other than the race for 4th. Out of the cup, out of the CL, dead as a club.

[i][u]December Update[/u][/i]

Al-Nassr (A) We got a man sent off after 35 minutes. Seriously what the ****. Was 1-1 until the hour when A;-Khaibary got 2 in 2 minutes and settled it. [b]3-1[/b]

Al-Ra'ed (H) [b]2-0[/b] . . . only 1 yellow card too

Al-Shoalah (H) Al-Khaibary gave us the lead but SHOCKER we got a red card a few minutes later. 16 minutes gone and already down to 10. They equalize before half time but just after the break some random midfielder scored a screamer for us and we held on to win [b]2-1[/b]

Najran (A) We went 1 up just before the break. I put the second half on and then forgot about it whilst browsing or something. Finished [b]2-2[/b] . . . . .bad management

Al-Ittihad (H) - So playing the champions again. The *****. Al-Khaibary the ****ing legend gives us the lead after rounding the keeper and bundling it in. 39 minutes gone. We deserved the win and got it. **** Al-Ittihad and **** their wage bill. [b]1-0[/b]

So, we enter 2018 :djmac:

Al-Khaibary - 10 goals in 12 games. Beast.

Mario Torres - Inconsistent as **** but scored 4 goals and has a 7.2 Av.Rating. Injured now though.

Al-Aboosh - 3 goals in 6 starts. Not bad for a kid. Won't get near the team if all strikers fit but could to have the option.

After the board pumped that money into the club I snook in a signing while my wage offerings were not restricted to £250 :D A Goalkeeper from Russia, 31 year old Belenov. Looks very very good.

[i][u]January/February Update[/u][/i]

Hajer (A) Looked like a ****** draw but Al-Shibani popped up to score in the 85th minute to give us the win [b]2-1[/b]

Al-Ettifaq (A) This time it looked like a win until a late goal. They equalized in the 82nd minute and we just couldn't get another one. Gutting result. [b]1-1[/b]

Al-Qadisiyah (H) Al-Mutlaq got 3, Al-Khaibary got 2 . . .[b]5-0[/b]

Al-Ta'ee (H) Al-Khaibary scored a few seconds in and Torres clinched it in the second half. [b]2-0[/b]

Being out of the cup and not in the ACL makes it a quiet period :( No red cards in this update though *dances* *dances* Looking at the fixtures we haven't lost in like 12 games, doesn't really feel like that with some of the draws though.

[i][u]March/April/May Update[/u][/i]


Al-Hilal (H) - This was the game where my whole team almost was on international duty. 8 of my players were in the Saudi Arabia squad while these lads had none. They are hovering just behind us in 4th too so this was a massive game. It was horrible. [b]0-2[/b]

Al-Wahda (A) - Al-Mutlaq scored after 4 minutes and then we made it much nervier ourselves by just not really bothering to play. Torres got injured, will miss most of the remaining games. [b]1-0[/b]

Al-Ahli (A) - They look like they will win the league, this was a bit of a **** game. [b]0-0[/b]

Al-Fateh (H) - Again a fairly terrible performance but we scored twice at the end (89 and 90+2) so it looks comfortable. [b]2-0[/b]

Al-Ra'ed (A) - Again we were not playing great. Top striker lad Al-Khaibary scored after an hour and Al-Mutlaq made the scorline look better deeep in stoppage time. [b]2-0[/b]

Al-Nassr (H) - Yeah we won, good performance. [b]3-0[/b]

Najran (H) - We clinched 3rd with a [b]0-0[/b]

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/ACLqualified.png[/img]

Al-Shoalah (A) - we won, 1 each for the two lads up top. [b]2-0[/b]

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/saudileague4.png[/img]

DEFYING ALL ODDS

[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/DEFYINGTHEODDS.png[/img]

Al-Khaibary - 17 goals in 23. Plays poacher so he is expected to be the top scorer really

Al-Mutlaq - Got 13 goals, he played a bit in midfield when we had injuries/suspensions

Torres - Only played 19 times, but played well. Still think he can improve.

Belenov - Came in for the last 13 games and only conceded 4 :o 2 of them were in that ROBBERY of a game against Al-Hilal

We topped the red card table with 6 and the yellow card table with 49

What to people think of this format ?
Do people want any screenshots ?

[i][u]Pre-Season Update[/u][/i]

Signed 3 players, all free transfers.

Franck Mangin - 19 year old central defender who was released from PSG. Physical beast with at least 13 in all of those stats. I was informed in the press conference that he is injury prone. oops.

Ahmed Al-Harbi -Saudi. 21. A midfielder who is decent going forward. Has 4 caps. Good dribbler and has pace.

Abdul Rahman Al-Jehani - Another young attack minded Saudi midfielder. Only 19 and has made his debut for Saudi Arabia.

Al-Khaibary and Al-Mutlaq have got injured in the week before the first game :D Will miss the first 2 months probably :D That is this season almost wrote off already for **** sake

Thanks for the reply SRL :thup:

[i][u]August/September/October Update[/u][/i]

Al-Ittihad (A) - Playing these rats again first day of the season. We were 2-0 down within 20 minutes and I thought yeah this is gonna be a **** season. New signing Al-Jehani got one back with a SCREAMER before half time. Comeback was on but then they made it 3-1 just after halftime :D on the hour Al-Jehani scored ANOTHER SCREAMER and we piled on the pressure to try equalize. There was 3 minutes added on. In the 96th minute we had a corner, and it was cleared to the edge to the box where Al-Shibani drove it into the bottom corner. What a game. [b]3-3[/b]

Al-Qadisiyah (H) - Torres scored after 10 minutes but despite peppering their goal we couldn't get a second until the 73rd minute when Torres got another. French CB Mangin got a third a few minutes later. [b]3-0[/b]

Al-Hilal (A) - Yet again a game against these lot is soured by international call ups. This time I am without my underage Saudis. Had to play Al-Harbi up front who is utter ****. Despite that, he scored after 10 minutes :D We didn't do much else in the game and they got an equalizer. [b]1-1[/b]

Al-Ra'ed (H) - Al-Aboosh has been partnering Al-Shibani up front because of our preseason injuries and he has been dire. But he scored today after 6 minutes. Al-Jehani scored AGAIN xnod [b]2-0[/b]

Badnah (H) CROWN PRINCE CUP 2nd Rnd - Absolutely smashed this lot. When we went 2-0 up I went overload to try and crush them. Hatricks for Al-Shibani and Al-Aboosh. [b]9-0[/b]

Hajer (A) - Another goal for Al-Jehani, what a signing he has been. He is keeping Mario Torres out of the team. Al-Aboosh got 2 so he is back in business. [b]4-0[/b]

Al-Ettifaq (H) - 16 shots, none of them any good. [b]0-0[/b]

Al-Nassr (A) - Al-Khaibary started his first game of the season and he scored the clincher after Al-Shibani and Mangin had put us two up. [b]3-0[/b]

Al-Ta'ee (A) CROWN PRINCE CUP 3rd Rnd - The is the first time this year that Al-Khaibary and Al-Mutlaq have started up front together. Al-Khaibary opened the scoring just before half-time. A Mangin own goal after 57 minutes leveled it and I got a bit pissed off because I expected him to be playing better than he has been so far this year, he made it up to me by scoring though. Maierstein got sent off at the end. First red. [b]2-1[/b]

Ohod (A) - Straightforward. [b]2-0[/b]

8 games gone in the league. We sit 3rd. 3 points behind the leaders.

We have been brilliant at the back since the first day of the season :cool:

[i][u]November/December Update[/u][/i]

Al-Ahli (H) - Massive game. An Al-Jehani special gave us the lead and then nondescript midfielder Al-Qarni doubled the lead. They got one back but was not enough. We go second. [b]2-1[/b]

Najran (H) - Comfortable win even after missing an early penalty. [b]3-0[/b]

Al-Wahda (A) - Really comfortable win ! Goals spread around the team. [b]5-0[/b]

Al-Watani (A) CROWN PRINCE CUP 4th Rnd - Another lower league team. Full back Huwais gave us an early lead and Al-Mutlaq made sure of the win late on. [b]2-0[/b]

Al-Shoalah (H) - Wow we are really motoring now but Al-Ahli and Al-Ittihad just will not lose. Goal each for Al-Khaibary, Torres, Al-Mutlaq and Al-Jehani in a big win. [b]4-1[/b]

Al-Hazm (A) - Al-Jehani scores AGAIN, it gives us a 2-0 lead just before half time and the game finishes [b]3-1[/b]

Al-Ittihad (H) - THE BIG ONE. We had two goals chalked off for offside in the first half and then they scored after 59 minutes and I was sure we had blown it. Then Torres missed a penalty after 75 and I gave up all hope. They had a man sent off for the foul but it looked like one of those games where you just think it is fixed. Al-Harbi broke through and finished in the next attack and against 10 men I decided to go for it. 3 up top and 3 centre mids. It paid off in the 85th minute when we broke down the left. Our players swarmed forward and they just couldn't deal with the numbers in the box which left Al-Mutlaq free at the back post to nod home. I quickly switched things around and we held on. [b]2-1[/b]


[img]http://i401.photobucket.com/albums/pp91/ryan0908/saudileague5.png[/img]

I agreed a contract extension with Al-Mutlaq but before it could be signed Cannes swept in and offered him a deal :crossed: ****ed if he leaves.

Only conceded 8 goals . . . . Won 8 in a row . . . . 21 without losing

Only 11 yellow cards . . . . Least in the league . . . . NO RED CARDS .

What a ****ing season so far. WHAT A ****ING SEASON.

[i][u]January/Fenruary/March Update[/u][/i]

Al-Mutlaq is leaving at the end of the season. To Groningen. Gutted.

Hajer (A) CROWN PRINCE CUP 5th Rnd - Took us until the hour mark to break the deadlock but eventually we won well. [b]3-0[/b]

Mario Maierstein left for 1860 Munchen for 1.6M. Noooooooooo ****ing board. :( The day he left Al-Mutlaq pulled his hamstring and is gone for a month. I signed an AMC for 600k with the money but I dunno if he is that good and he has to be retrained to MC. I bought him out of spite more than anything ha

Al-Qadisiyah (A) - Al-Aboosh at the start of the second half with the only goal. We were poor. Al-Khaibary got injured in the first half. 6 weeks. ITS ALL FALLING APART LADS. [b]1-0[/b]

Al-Hilal (H) - Record attendance because of their good away contingent, 22,000 which is over 4 times our usual fare :D Anyway we battered these lads but understandably with our two main strikers missing - We were toothless. Draw double with Al-Hilal :( Al-Ittihad overtake us at the top. [b]0-0[/b]

Al-Ittihad are smashing everyone to pieces, they could easily win the rest of their games.

Al-Ra'ed (A) - Aw I ****ing hate title races like this, every game is just horrible because even a win doesn't even mean anything when Al-Ittihad just murder someone 5-0 Al-Jehani got injured at the start of the game, out for 5 weeks. Anyway Mangin with 2 goals today. 27 and 77. He has chipped in well from defence. The new AMC lad 'Bandar Khalid' got a 3rd in stoppage time. [b]3-0[/b]

Al-Ra'ed (A) CROWN PRINCE CUP 1/4 Final - Al-Shibani who has been transfer listed by request this season because he wants to go to a bigger club was the star today. An early goal on 16 minutes was cancelled out after half time. He got a winner on 87 to send us through. [b]2-1[/b]

Away to Al-Ittihad in the semis :( Winner wins the whole thing I would imagine but it is still a ***** draw.

Hajer (H) - Another win, another goal for Al-Aboosh. Playing well above his stats. [b]2-0[/b]

Al-Nassr (H) - Two for Al-Mutlaq on his return, first red card of the season for us (Al-Khodair) but a good win against one of the 'Spend more money than us on wages' teams is always welcome. [b]3-0[/b]

Esteghlal (Iran) (A) ACL GROUP GAME 1 - Tight game, and by tight I mean boring. [b]0-0[/b]

Bunyodkor (Uzbekistan) (H) ACL GROUP GAME 2 - Al-Shibani hat-trick, good win. [b]4-0[/b]

Al-Wahda (UAE) (H) ACL GROUP GAME 3 - We had 31 shots in this game 30 ****ing 1. But yet they took the lead. . . I lashed on another striker and we got one with 14 minutes to play and kept on piling on the pressure but to no avail. 31 shots, 1 point. [b]1-1[/b]

I attended Al-Ittihads game against Al-Ahli as it is my best hope. When Al-Ittihad had a man sent off before half time I got excited but they still went one up. . . I thought all hope was lost but Al-Ahli nicked one on 74 and it finished as a draw. Back in it lads, back in it.

Ohod (H) - These are ****. [b]5-0[/b]

If we win our 6 remaining matches we will be champions. GULP.

Cannot believe it, still in with a chance of a treble but equally it could all go to ****.

All riding on these last few games.

[i][u]March/April/May Update[/u][/i]

Al-Ettifaq (A) - Tense game, it's all a bit different now we are in the driving seat. A goal from Al-Mutlaq gave us the lead and we just about held on for the next 69 minutes [b]1-0[/b]

Al-Ittihad (A) CROWN PRINCE CUP 1/2 Final - Massive game, and Al-Khaibary gve us a 22nd minute lead, we continued to just batter these ***** and finished them off with goals from Al-Khaibary and Mangin either side of the hour. Amazing performance, limiting them to 3 shots. [b]3-0[/b]

Esteghlal (Iran) (H) ACL GROUP GAME 4 - Al-Khaibary went down injured after 8 minutes but Al-Shibai replaced him and scored almost instantly. Al-Mutlaq secured the win before the hour and we are now in the driving seat. [b]2-0[/b]

Najran (A) - Every game is so tense now, dayum. We had to work hard. [b]2-1[/b]

Al-Ahli (A) - Despite leading the title race we could still finish 3rd at this point and Al-Ahli who won the whole thing last year reminded us of this so a defeat here would be really bad. Al-Mutlaq gave us the lead before half-time but right after the break they equalised. They got another 20 minutes later and there was nothing we could do. ****. Fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. [b]1-2[/b]

Al-Shoalah (A) - It was 3-0 by the hour mark and eventually finished [b]3-1[/b]

Al-Ittihad were away to Al-Wahda and went 1-0 down early, they equalised straight away and my nerves got too much so i didn't look until the end.

[spoiler]Al-Wahda 2-1 Al-Ittihad

IT IS BACK ON, just win our last two games.[/spoiler]

Bunyodkor (Uzbek) (A) ACL GROUP GAME 5 - Annoying distraction. We take the lead twice and they peg us back twice (I actually agreed to sign the goalscorer after our last meeting, more on that later) eventually Al-Khaibary got 2 in 5 minutes to kill them off. [b]4-2[/b]

Al-Wahda (H) - As we know from last week, these are dangerous. We got an early goal though and I could relax. Al-Qarni got sent off at 2-0 which could have put us under pressure but we dealt with it. [b]4-0[/b]

Al-Wahda (UAE) (A) ACL GROUP GAME 6 - I told the lads to Take a Breather and Stand Off etc to preserve energy as we have clinched top spot but Al-Khaibary still got injured after 3 minutes . . Mario Torres missed a pen but Al-Aboosh nicked a goal at the end. [b]1-0[/b]

Al-Qadisiyah (N) CROWN PRINCE CUP FINAL - I usually thrash this lot. Al-Mutlaq, who has been excellent since agreeing his move put us ahead after 10 minutes and Al-Shibani added a second 10 minutes after half time. They got one back a few minutes later but never threatened. [b]2-1[/b]

Al-Ahli (H) ACL 2nd Rnd - Bit **** playing these. Al-Hilal are playing Al-Ittihad, the two Iranian teams are playing each other, the two Qatari teams and also the two Chinese teams :D So tense because this is only one leg. We missed a ton of chances and it went to extra-time. I was going overload for so long I was surprised they didn't catch us on the break. [b]0-0[/b] PENALTIES

Torres. Al-Shibani. Al-Harbi. Al-Mutlaq. Al-Jehani. ALL SCORED. They missed one. Into the last 8 go.

Al-Hazm (H) - Home to one of the relegated teams to win the league. If you had offered me this at the start of the season etc. Still, I was nervous as ****. Even after we took the lead after 36 minutes. Al-Shibani got us a second before half time and I began to relax. They offered nothing. [b]2-0[/b]
