Just the loss at home to Red Arrows ruining our perfect record but with the amount of goals we're scoring it's too much for everyone else to handle and after just 16 games we're 13 points clear of the now mediocre looking Zesco! :D

Thanks mate :) Interesting doing it in Asia and at least you've added leagues to get even more variety, you should start a thread!

Just the one game in June, a big win over Lusaka Tigers, follow this up with a late win over Lusaka Dynamos and another easy win against Konkola Blades and our first draw of the season against 5th placed Red Arrows, we're still 13 points clear and are looking good for the title!

Chewe looks really interesting. Is he scoring many or just laying them on?

Motoring to the title as well, keep it up comrade :applause:

Just the draw away to 15th placed National Assembly and that's because I didn't change to the away from home formation, we beat Zesco 4-0!

2 wins in the cup and 3 in the league. We have 6 games left to play but we are the champions of Zambia! We've also set a new record for most goals scored (We've scored 108 so far!)

League and cup double, we're no longer bridesmaids...and we scored 129 goals!!! I want to look out for a job in Algeria due to their league rules not allowing any foreigners to be signed which would be an interesting challenge,and in the alphabet challenge attempts I've had I have always enjoyed my time in Algeria.

A good showing in what would end up being my last game in charge, after receiving an offer that I wouldn't refuse.

EDIT: It ended up being my 3rd last job in charge...another job came up so I rejected the first one and in that time I won the Charity Shield by beating Nkana 8-0! In the Semi Final and Zesco 3-2 in the Final.

Emblem of Algeria

J.S.K Logo.png

History: ( From French Wiki)

 

The sporting youth of Kabylie (in Kabyle  : ilmezyen nw addal n leqvayel , acronym in tifinagh  : ⵊⵙⴽ  in Arabic  : شبيبة القبائل), commonly abbreviated in JS Kabylie or JSK , is an Algerian football club officially founded in 1946 . The JSK was created on the bases of the Rapid Club of Tizi-Ouzou , founded in 1928 . Affiliated to the Fédération Française de Football Association (FFFA) under number 8153 , she competed in her first official competitions,

After the independence of Algeria the club manages to accede to the elite denominated at that time National One in 1969 and obtained the status of semi-professional. Since then, the JSK never knew the relegation in lower division and imposed itself like one of the best clubs of the country. During the year 2010 , the club obtained the status of professional following a reform of the championship in order to professionalize the Algerian football. The JSK won its first title of champion of Algeria only four years after its accession, at the end of the season 1972-1973 . She will manage the performance to keep her property the following season.

Twelve other championship titles will follow, making it the most titled of the country, the last one being acquired at the end of the 2007-2008 season . At the national level, the JSK also won the Algerian football cupfive times , the last of which was won at the end of the 2010-2011 edition , as well as a supercup of Algeria obtained in 1992 . His first Algerian Cup victory dates back to the 1976-1977 edition , which was won in a double-championship, the first in its history. The second victory of the club in this competition which intervened at the end of the 1985-1986 edition was also during a competition,

On the international stage, JS Kabylie won two cups of the champions clubs in 1981 and 1990 , as well as the 1995 edition of the cup , making it the only Algerian club in the competition. In addition to these two African competitions, JSK also won three consecutive CAF Cups in the 2000 , 2001 and 2002 editions . On the African plan, the Tizi Ouzou team is the most titled Algerian club but also the one that has played the most matches and one of the few in Africa to have won the three different competitions.

As a result of numerous events in Kabylie in the 1980s ( Berber Spring ), and because the name of this club includes the word "  Kabylie  ", it has been considered by some regionalists since then the torchbearer ideas politico - cultural region of Kabylie and the symbol of its identity struggle 5 . Finally, the club carried several names during its existence such as the "Jamiat Sari" Kawkabi from 1971 to 1977 and the "Electronic Youth of Tizi-Ouzou" from 1977 to 1989 .

7 games to save them, no fancy tactics here, just going to do what I have to do to keep them up and then build them back up to where they should be...(but money talks so if a bigger club headhunts me then I'll be swayed)

Just the 2 games for me to take charge of in March and we get 4 points from 6 which takes us 3 points clear of the drop although we still have as bad a goal difference as the rest of the teams fighting the drop.

This has been an enjoyable read so far.  That last season at Zanaco was amazing.  It's always satisfying when after a bit of a struggle against a dominant team in a league it all comes together for a season like that.

Just the 2 games in October but we're up to 4th! I think my tactic is finally getting settled other than players getting injured so here it is:

It's counter away from home or at home to big clubs and control when at home or away to small clubs.

2 tough defeats against USM Alger which sees us knocked out of the cup, very unlucky to have been drawn against them in the first round that we were entered in but I guess someone had to face them and unfortunately it was us. In the league we're sitting nicely in 5th and 5 points ahead of ASO Chlef but only the top 4 qualify for continental competition.

3 away games in a row and we didn't lose, we were 3-0 down at half-time against JS Saoura so I think we did quite well to get a result! This also puts us into 4th on goal difference!

4 wins and a draw sees us move up to an unlikely high of 2nd place! This is a little less impressive when the title challengers have 3 or 4 games in hand over you though.

Loving your journeyman saves. Reading through them you've inspired me to do my own. I've ditched my TNS save and started on a European adventure. Just been appointed to try and save HJK who currently sit in 9th in the Finnish Premier League. Think I'm going to enjoy the different teams, countries and rules to contend with.

Good luck with your save and I'm glad your enjoying mine, HJK are a fairly big club in Finland so I expect you'll win he league within a couple of seasons. :)

A terrible start to the month which actually saw us drop down to 14th and put us in the relegation zone, but back-to-back wins and we're up to 7th. 8 games in and it's been a hard start really, we've played the teams predicted 1st, 2nd and 3rd away from home and we've played the team predicted 5th at home, hopefully things can get easier from here. We've also scored the most AND conceded the most goals in the league.

EDIT: And next up we play the team predicted 4th (ES Setif) typical.
