Really glad you're continuing this Makoto. How long are you planning to stay in Algeria? It might be time for Djibouti mate...:brock:

Well my job security has gone down to stable for the first time in a long time and I've applied for a job in South Africa so I could potentially be here for a while longer, but I could also be moving on within weeks! :D

Glad to see this return although I was really enjoying your America save as I'm still well into my America save. 

 

That Nadjib Bouzidi looks awesome! He just needs work on his pace and you've got at least a 20 goal a season striker there mate!

Enjoy your American save and keep me updated! If the rep were correct then I'd probably still be carrying on although I can also understand why the rep was changed, it's just not for me though.

There are still more games in March, but I will not be the manager, the game away to CABB Arreridj was my 1st league win in 3 months and it would've been heart attack inducing.

We won 2 league games 1-0 and that's just enough to drag us out of the drop zone for now and our Nedbank Cup run ends after a long penalty shoot-out against Mamelodi Sundowns.

3 big wins lifted us well above the drop zone and despite the fact we lost the last 2 games we finished in 13th on 28 points, 10 points clear of automatic relegation and 9 clear of the playoffs.

4 away games this month but in the league we come out with 2 wins and 2 draws, and that's not easy when you face the teams in 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th!

A poor couple of games in the league, drawing at home to Jomo Cosmos who are down in 13th, and when you go up against Cape Town City you know you're either going to win or lose, this time we lost. We've made our first cup final though as we'll be facing Mamelodi Sundowns in the Telkom Knockout Final!

1st South African silverware won! With 3 goals in 10 minutes it was enough to see off Mamelodi Sundowns! In the league we're still looking strong as we didn't concede this month and are in 3rd with a game in hand on Mamelodi Sundowns and 2 games in hand over Kaizer Chiefs.

The defeat against Bloemfontein Celtic may have blown what little chance we had of winning the league and Mamelodi Sundowns may climb above us with their game in hand but with 5 games to go it's definitely a close race!

A mixed end to the season but we did very, very well! Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns showed they were a class above the rest of us and finished the season with a 4-4 draw against each other in the final game, I think we also qualify for the 2036 Confederation Cup!

I think it'll take quite some doing to overtake Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns, I did have an interview with Bidvest Wits but I didn't get the job, I'm going to presume this is because I don't actually have any coaching badges.

No, we can't keep the good form up and we go down to 10th after 7 games, yet we knocked Orlando Pirates out in the 1st Round of the Telkom Knockout, at least that's some good news.

Well at least we beat Bloemfontein Celtic in the league although it was an expected loss against Bidvest Wits, heart-breaking to lose 3-0 away to the side that are currently 9th in the division below us in the 1st Round of the Nedbank Cup. We also met Eleven Men in Flight in the Confederation Cup Preliminary Round and we're pretty safe after the away leg.

Well it's 0 wins in 3 against Kaizer Chiefs so far, we would have done better but in the 2nd leg we went down to 10 men after 19 minutes and still outplayed them in every way except goals scored, a great win to start off in the league though!

Ooohhh... That's a great move. I'm very excited about this.

If I can get the facilities even higher then I will also be very excited, it could be a good time for South African football!

Another disappointing 2 points dropped with a 0-0 draw at home to Jomo Cosmos who we then defeated in the Telkom Knockout Semi Final, we'll face SuperSport United in the final. In the league we're just 4 points behind Mamelodi Sundowns but we do have 2 games in hand still.

2 straightforward league wins and we beat SuperSport United to become Telkom Knockout winners, which is the one competition I won at Royal Eagles! :D

Ivory Coast finished 2nd to Cape Verde but then made it all the way to the Final, thrashing Algeria 5-2 to win their first ACON since 2015.

Perfect month! We have a 7-0 lead to take to Madagascar in the 2nd leg of the Champions League Preliminary Round, we're also through in the Nedbank Cup and we're still unbeaten in the league and are now 5 points clear with a game in hand.
