You'd think so but nope. He's just one hell of a scorer.

A great intake! And we get a class player that has Djibouti as his first nationality, hopefully he will play for the NT!

Another amazing month sees us progress to the 2nd Round of the Champions League where after defeating Congolese side La Mancha we'll be facing Cameroonian side Astres who I faced in the group stage of the Confederation Cup as manager of Royal Eagles.

Another draw in the league but we're still 11 points clear and have a game in hand :D We're through to the Nedbank Cup Semi Final where we'll be facing my old side Royal Eagles and the group stage of the Champions League has been drawn.

If we were judging this purely on salary (which means little, I know) then Group A ranks 36th, 2nd, 6th and 4th whilst Group B have 16th, 8th, 5th and 38th.

Ashanti Gold do have this guy though...

Another cup defeat :( this time the only goal was from a 95th minute penalty. Devastating. On the flip side though we broke the record for most league goals scored and we're the South African Invincibles!!!

2037/38 Pre-Season

800th game to kick things off!

ddb30f2875a312f6782a2c728a18ec06.png

With the competitions going on it's been a long pre-season but we got one over on Kaizer Chiefs by beating them in the Be The Coach match to win the first silverware of the season and now we'll face them in the Final of the MTN 8 Cup as well. We also breezed through the Champions League Group Stage.

c49aab11d9136805a6c36b2fa2f9b3a5.png

3 South African clubs made the group stage and now 3 of the 4 Semi-Finalists are also South African sides, we face Club Africain.

Not a single league game but we beat Chelsea 3-1, yes, that Chelsea with their world class players! That's going to go down as a high point in the save for sure! In the league we now have 4 to 6 games in hands and have 21 league games to play from February 10th to May 29th.

We beat Dortmund and lost just 1-0 to Bayern! :eek:

ad2d3eb255a89535e0296e59ddc3d4dd.png

2 players in, a rotation GK and perhaps one of the best signings I'll make in Islam Abdel Aty, in the summer window Real Madrid, Chelsea, Bayern and a few others were all interested in him, I don't know what happened but he stayed in Egypt and now he's in South Africa!

We were really grinding out results towards the end but we did it, 2 seasons with Orlando Pirates and 2 unbeaten league seasons along with us winning all 7 of the 7 competitions we could enter this season, it's time to end this chapter.

A solid enough start with a win and 2 draws. Djibouti Telecom all but 5 times since the game started so they'll definitely look to pull ahead of Gendamerie in the table before long.

Well I certainly didn't see that coming! 3 games and 3 wins and we're top of the league with the other promoted side SDVK being in 2nd and Djibouti Telecom being way down in 6th!

We lost two players on transfer deadline day and managed to bring in one.

2 more big wins and we hold on to first nut Arta / SIHD are ride on our tail and are only one goal behind us on goal difference and as we sit one game away from the half-way point it looks like a 2 horse race for the title.

I honestly have no idea, Djibouti Telecom are the only professional side and that's due to their dominance so maybe 10-15 years of winning everything?

And then things came crashing down. Out in the 1st Round of the cup and 2 points from 9 in the league including a home defeat to the league leaders and we're now just 2 points ahead of Djibouti Telecom and have a slightly inferior goal difference. The transfer window is now open but the only player brought in was a backup AMC.
