A very good month, cape town seem to be doing okay especially if they win even 2 of those 3 games in hand!

Indeed, the great Benni McCarthy is the man at the helm at Cape Town City. Last season they were top after nine games (seven to ten played so far this) but ended up dropping a bit. Strong starters it would seem!

November 2019 Round-up:

Upcoming Fixtures:

https://i.imgur.com/Llc5t5u.png

After winning the Top 8 Cup last month, we headed into November aiming to pick up our underwhelming Premier Soccer League form. We sat 8th coming into this period so a major pick up was needed, we had five PSL matches to find an improvement - while our CAF Champions League group stage campaign got underway.

What a great month. We will go into December full of confidence after securing top spot in the Premier Soccer League; though that is a little skewed as second place Cape Town City have three (!) games in hand. Still, as the old saying goes, I'd much rather have the points on the board. November actually started a little disappointingly as we were held by Golden Arrows, but we soon picked up strongly with wins over Ajax CT, Tshakhuma and FS Stars. Sundowns held us to a tie but it was a point I am OK with. Our Champions League group got underway with a convincing win in the DR Congo over AS Vita. Positive vibes.

December promises to be a massive month, with the pick of the fixtures being Cape Town City away on 22 December 2019. Bidvest Wits and Maritzburg United will give tricky tests too, I'm sure. We'll also met the other two teams in our CAF CL group - Horoya and Ismaily. Bring it on!

Pre-season 2020 Round-up:

Upcoming Fixtures:

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

That was what awaited my team as we began the 2020 season. The off-season is about so much more though, I've been working hard to try and bring in players to help us, hopefully, improve on our respectable and above expectation 10th place finish in 2019. Let's get straight into it with the friendlies.
https://i.imgur.com/sYNF2qO.png

Game 1: El Tanque Sisley (URU) vs. Tabaré de Florida (URU) (Friendly)

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

Thoughts: Domination in our first friendly, we put six past lower league Tabaré de Florida with new signings Jonathan Castellanos and Brian Scalco netting goals.

https://i.imgur.com/sYNF2qO.png
Game 2: El Tanque Sisley (URU) vs. Cerro (URU) (Friendly)

https://i.imgur.com/iQ47p3a.png

Thoughts: The exact opposite in match two, as the country's third best club (based on 2019 finish) Cerro tore us apart.

https://i.imgur.com/sYNF2qO.png
Game 3: Alto Perú (URU) vs. El Tanque Sisley (URU) (Friendly)

https://i.imgur.com/Gx7afx3.png

Thoughts: Alto Perú were narrowly defeated here on penalties, pretty poor performance versus a team we should be beating - but at least we got the victory eventually.

https://i.imgur.com/sYNF2qO.png
Game 4: Centenario Uruguayo (URU) vs. El Tanque Sisley (URU) (Friendly)

https://i.imgur.com/jJZ5wil.png

Thoughts: Santiago Segovia's sole goal led us to the win over Centenario Uruguayo. Not much more to that fixture, a rather dull affair despite us being dominant.

https://i.imgur.com/sYNF2qO.png
Game 5: Mar de Fondo (URU) vs. El Tanque Sisley (URU) (Friendly)

https://i.imgur.com/5bbj2qo.png

Thoughts: Our penultimate pre-season friendly ended with a four-goal win over Mar de Fondo, Castellanos scored a hat-trick to take his exhibition match tally to five goals - strong beginnings, hopefully he carries on in competitive action.

https://i.imgur.com/sYNF2qO.png
Game 6: El Tanque Sisley (URU) vs. Defensa y Justicia (ARG) (Friendly)

https://i.imgur.com/4wXQ8Fs.png

Thoughts: Arguably our best performance of pre-season, despite the result. Argentine Primera División side Defensa y Justicia are a very good team, who we may have eventually lost to but we put up a very valiant effort. Castellanos scoring again was a major plus.

https://i.imgur.com/sYNF2qO.png
Recap: A real mixed bag of results, the results with Cerro and Defensa y Justicia show that - two top clubs, but two differing performances. I was playing a different tactic towards the end of pre-season, so that might explain it. I don't know what to expect from this 2020 season.

https://i.imgur.com/np1I1iQ.png
https://i.imgur.com/zqBD9yo.png
https://i.imgur.com/sYNF2qO.png
Seven things to share.

A: First up: Transfers. Right-back Milton Ramos, left winger Brian Scalco, forward Jonathan Castellanos, goalkeeper Juan Falchi (perm.) and forward Ricardo Bueno all joined. Goalkeeper Diego Soria was the only notable departure.

https://i.imgur.com/J9UoiFT.png

https://i.imgur.com/fi8Vjv7.png


B: Back to last season, here's the season review - where we were announced as the biggest overachievers.
https://i.imgur.com/vncZ23h.png


C: As soon as the season ended, I went on my second coaching course - which I passed just before pre-season began. Nice timing.
https://i.imgur.com/YzzGIcI.png

https://i.imgur.com/DhRP1zA.png


D: Here's the 2019 season's awards. Marcos Lyford Pike cleaned up, sadly he has missed much of pre-season due to injury - as has 'keeper Juan Falchi.
https://i.imgur.com/WthuoQP.png


E: Here's the 2020 season's expectations. Same as last year, I'm hoping for that as a bare minimum. However, my current contract ends in June, so I may not even be at the club at the end of the campaign - hopefully I will be.
https://i.imgur.com/kHio1K1.png


F: Diego Forlán turned me down, therefore choosing to retire. He could've added something for us, but if his head wasn't going to be in it then there was no point. Two forwards have been signed in his place.
https://i.imgur.com/5YAybSr.png

https://i.imgur.com/O9Uw7xL.png


G: Lastly, some exciting news for the club: a new stadium is being planned. El Tanque Sisley currently play in Florida but their spiritual home is over in Montevideo, where the new stadium would be built. Long time away, it seems.

At least you have had a very good response, helps make the memory of Rijeka slowly disappear - especially with the cup redemption.

Well done on a second Top 8 Cup. Always good to retain the title. Shame about the exit of the other cup but thankfully the board don't mind about that too much.

Cheers! It certainly is. The Knockout Cup for sure isn't important, but I like to be in as many competitions as possible - to hopefully win them, like you are doing in your current save.

Congrats on the cup, but what's with all the random friendly matches? You've got enough competitive games going on as it is to risk any injuries in random meaningless games. Still plenty of timein the elague to push up the table.

Thanks! I only tend to schedule mid-season friendlies when there is a fourteen day+ break in-between competitive games, helps keep the players at match sharpness - which serves me well, I don't get *that* many injuries. And yes, I know I've just jinxed myself now!

October 2019 Round-up:

Upcoming Fixtures:

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

In this month, October, we had the chance to claim our first piece of major silverware (second overall, if you count Be The Coach - which I do ) in the shape of the Top 8 Cup, which we got our hands on last season so are looking to retain it. Just two other competitive fixtures were scheduled, one in the Premier Soccer League and one in the Knockout Cup - with two friendlies being set too.

October couldn't have started better as we defeated SuperSport Utd in the league for a much needed three points, prior to defeating then-PSL leaders Bidvest Wits in the Top 8 Cup final. Champions for the second year running! Very nice. It also meant I was inducted into the South African Hall of Fame (see above). Unfortunately, friendly wins aside, the month ended with major disappointment as we were eliminated from the Knockout Cup at the first round - just like last season! We're pretty much in the same overall position than this time twelve months ago - Top 8 Cup champions but out at the first hurdle in the KO Cup.

Just the one PSL fixture this month so we're still quite a way behind the early pace setters Cape Town City, who are six points clear of us. Five league matches are scheduled for November, a major catch up is needed. The CAF Champions League returns next month with the group stage starting. Still four months away from the FA Cup.

A solid season there mate, shame Diego is looking to retire hopefully he'll reconsider and stay for one more season but I'm sure this season has gave you a solid foundation to build on for next season.

Looking forward to what next season has to offer!

Thanks! I hope so, I've personally rarely seen a player reconsider - he wouldn't be a key member of the team next season, but would like for him to be one of the key squad players who plays when needed. He does want to be an assistant manager or coach, so could get him to stay that way. We'll see!

Disappointing not to be given some money after the takeover but still good going all things considered. Are you staying next season or is it time to move on?

Indeed. Hopefully I can get a few good players for low fees in the upcoming window. Definitely staying, not sure for how long - ideally keep building year on year. I never put any aims on my Journeyman saves - mainly because I'm not good enough to make them happen - I just see what occurs, just as happy to stay at a club long-term than I am to move about regularly.
