From the bottom to the top. A journey to try and top the worldwide Hall of Fame

Board wanting the double, pressure is on! I'm confident you can get that league title, though Warriors will likely run you all the way; despite the bookmakers odds.


Cheers man, Warriors have it all to play for so we won't take them lightly. The bookies have made us favourites for a reason, so hopefully we can live up to it

Albirex Niigata season update


If there was any doubt in my mind if leaving a stable role in Hougang for Albirex, these first 2 games proved my decision right. Absolutely dominating Tampines Rovers, despite only managing 1 goal and exploiting Hougang’s weaknesses despite a red card, I know this team can at the very least challenge for a top 2 spot.

https://i.imgur.com/z7y5kOq.png

Complacency seemed to be the issue against Home United, but after an aggressive team talk and some rotation in the line up, defending champs Warriors felt the full wrath of our desire to be as dominant as possible.

https://i.imgur.com/SoXfaa4.png

https://i.imgur.com/R8V6IBM.png

We rounded out the first month of my reign with a draw at home to Young Lions, we could’ve and probably should’ve scored more but we end the month second in the league but plenty of time to improve where we can.

https://i.imgur.com/tSfhtJj.png

https://i.imgur.com/pkju4Nd.png

https://i.imgur.com/el4BzpC.png

March came and went in a flash as we recorded 2 wins, and a loss to keep in second place, 2 points behind Home United who have 2 games in hand and have won all 6 of their games.

https://i.imgur.com/iu5djBj.png

https://i.imgur.com/Mb8liZG.png

It’s not panic stations time yet, there’s still plenty of games to go to make up ground on Home United. We assert our dominance in April with wins over DPMM and my former team Hougang United, and on the same day Home United lose their first game of the season, going down 3-2 away to Tampines Rovers which helps us move into top spot for now

https://i.imgur.com/i1fQrEF.png

https://i.imgur.com/wRNqjSy.png

I didn’t realise but after leaving Hougang, last season tops scorer Pablo Rodriguez signs for Geylang International and helps them win 2-1 away at Home United to keep them in second and us top of the league after 10 games. It’s now on us to make sure we stay there.

https://i.imgur.com/lulRaKb.png

https://i.imgur.com/YdDZDQI.png

Before we play Home United we manage a 2-1 away win over Young Lions to keep the good work so far going.

https://i.imgur.com/6ZXxcDN.png

As the match preview says we’re overwhelming favourites to win the game

https://i.imgur.com/UAMb3df.png

And win the game we do, however it wasn’t all plain sailing. Despite having many shots on goal, we only converted one of them, and Home United did look threatening throughout the game. Still, a win is a win and against second place helps us in maintaining our dominance.

https://i.imgur.com/BEL6Ozo.png

We end April with a 1 all draw against the champions Warriors, and this means we finish the month unbeaten and top of the league by 5 points.

https://i.imgur.com/f8Z4uoa.png

https://i.imgur.com/zQAdO7o.png

https://i.imgur.com/yEAhNRM.png

The one thing I’ve noticed is that this side has a lot of shots, we dominate games but we’re not exactly very clinical in front of goal. We could easily win by 5 goals in every game if our finishing was better, whilst not a cause for concern just yet, it’s something I’m going to keep an eye going into the next few months of the season. If we’re really going to dominate and take the league by storm, converting as many of our chances as possible is going to be key.

Next update will cover May to July’s games, any news in the world of football and anything else of note.

Thanks for reading.

Yeah going well, a nice little cushion early on always helps. I'm a bit surprised by him joining Geylang though, he refused a new contract at Hougang but Geylang aren't exactly a top team, but we'll see how he gets on

Albirex Niigata season update


As the season in Singapore runs from February to November, and it's the end of May, we'll take a look at the European Leagues that have just finished to see who won each.

First up Atletico made it back to back La Liga titles

https://i.imgur.com/IYpESqN.png

Man City made sure the Premier League trophy went back to Manchester, this time to the blue side as United won it last season

https://i.imgur.com/lQeku3C.png

Somewhat surprising in Italy as Napoli won Serie A with Juventus finishing 4th and 14 points off top spot

https://i.imgur.com/2dhPLX7.png

Another surprising result, this time in France with Monaco winning Ligue 1 on goal difference

https://i.imgur.com/6kTdYbv.png

Also slightly surprising is the Russian Premier league isn’t going to Moscow or Saint Petersburg, as Rubin Kazan won the league

https://i.imgur.com/r9oKN3s.png

No surprises in Germany or Portugal as Bayern & Benfica won their leagues, again

https://i.imgur.com/jPyB5xQ.png

https://i.imgur.com/wJ6vnU1.png

Which brings us to Scotland. Last season was a big surprise as Hearts of all teams won the SPL, this season surprising absolutely no one Celtic won the league, however it’s the bottom of the league that I am interested in

https://i.imgur.com/trS5gB6.png

Motherwell were flirting with relegation all season and managed to finish in the relegation play off places. Luckily for them they managed to win the play off game to live to fight another day. Hopefully for Motherwell this season is just a blip and not a sign of things to come

https://i.imgur.com/buIAeGL.png

https://i.imgur.com/RN17k6X.png

In our own season, May kicks off with confirmation my replacement at Hougang isn’t enjoying the best of times at my former club. I could see this coming a mile away, it’s a shame they couldn’t do much about it.

https://i.imgur.com/pfECR4J.png

https://i.imgur.com/ksCzOEW.png

Our form continues with a good win over Geylang International, before a poor result at home to Balesiter preceded a great away win over DPMM

https://i.imgur.com/sRfpZJD.png

https://i.imgur.com/cAfbaz2.png

https://i.imgur.com/VT2NKen.png

Confirmation of Warriors season going from bad to worse as well as they sack their manager, the same manager that won the league last season with them.

https://i.imgur.com/11BsVbs.png

Singapore cup quarter final first leg now as we didn’t show up with our finishing boots on at all and went down 2-0 away to Balesiter. The saving grace is that there’s a second leg to play

https://i.imgur.com/mqzjrj1.png

It was in the second leg where we really showed our mental toughness. Going in at half time we had managed to go in at 2-0, meaning the next 45 minutes were key to us as we’re now drawing 2 all in the tie

https://i.imgur.com/YFWwU4M.png


Second half was much like the first in that we scored 2 unanswered goals, meaning we’re through to the semi final, where we’ll play Warriors.

https://i.imgur.com/jWhR1C9.png

https://i.imgur.com/bYJe1Eb.png

https://i.imgur.com/sA2hdfB.png

This second leg in the cup has got me thinking that my decision to come here was the right one, and I genuinely think we're going on to win at least 1 of the League or Singaporean Cup.


To finish off July we smashed Tampines Rovers 4-1 to finish on top of the league with 38 points

https://i.imgur.com/IBv5nWv.png

https://i.imgur.com/MtLTGbF.png

https://i.imgur.com/X3z9A7M.png

With 7 games left to go in the league, it's our to lose. I can't see us going on a 7 game losing streak now and the title is within touching distance.

Next update will be the final set of games for this season, thanks for reading.

Looking good! Thought Balestier Khalsa were becoming a bogey team for you, luckily that second leg puts that idea to bed!

Just catching up with your story, the end of last season must have been frustrating - looking much better going into the end of this season with your new team though. Good luck, keep it up for that final push mate!
