The Begining

21 December 2015
It was a fine sunny afternoon in december, i just finish repairing my car when my agent show up at my front door.
He said that Persib Bandung are interested to sign me as they coach, and also i can apply for coaching possition in Indonesia National team as they need a new coach to upgrading their FIFA ranking position this year.
He also said that i need to give my decision for coaching persib at 20:00 as we will go to charity event held by Persib Foundation.

without much thinking i grab my coat and go to the gala with my agent.
we arrive around 19:30 and the event already start.
we find the chairman of persib and we discuss my contract at persib and many other thing, until we came up with an agreement.

26 December 2015

Today i will began my career as Persib Bandung Head coach, with the high expectation in my shoulder i go to see my player as they already doing some ligth training in the field.
I gather them all and i introduce my self, also i say my goal for this season and my plan on achieving them. All Player look agree with me and we begin the new era of football at Persib Bandung.

-Persib Info-

Persib is one of the top club in Indonesia. Located in the capitol city of West Java province, persib have a nick name Maung Bandung and the suppoerter called bobotoh and viking. Persib have one big rival Persija Jakarta and every match is matter of live and dead for them.
Persib hombase is at Jalak Harupat Stadium. with several key player like Vladimir Vujovic, Diogo ferreira, rudolf basna, sergio van dijk, and made wirawan.

1 January 2016

After a week in this club i get call from PSSI and says that i will take charge at National team of Indonesia. I say i want that post as long i can keep my role at persib, and they say i can keep both jobs as long as i can maintence a good work.
So i off to PSSI HQ and sign my contract there.

10 January 2016

After 2 weeks at Persib i do alot of change here. First i hire a new General Manager to help me building the team, next i hire few scout to upgrade my scouting range and few more staff for the first team resever and youth team. After my coaching staff complete i manage to strenghten my squad.
Mostly the player i sign is from free tranfers but with a good quality to help me achive my goal. With base formation of 4-2-2-2 and 4-2-4 i managed to sign bunch of attacking midfielder both left and right. And also i manage to sign some defender and couple striker. With ACL second preliminary round at 2nd February i hope this squad can get me to the next round
Also i released some of my player who i don't see any future in in my plan.

31 January 2016

It's been a month i take charge at Persib, now my squad are complete and i ready to take Suphanburi on my second preliminary round of ACL two days from now. I consulted with my coaching staff and we decide we will use 4-2-4 formation this time.

2 February 2016

It's a match day, we ready to beat them and we will i said in the dressing room. All player seem focus and we go out with much energy to burn.
The match played well for us they score first at the 27th minute and lead the way to the second half but my player is not giving up . Kim Kurniawan scored twice in the 45 minute and 58 minute to seal the deal bring persib a victory at my debut as head coach for Persib.
This mean wi will facing Osaka AC next week at playoff to take our chance playing in ACL.

9 February 2016

It's playoff night. With our win at thailand over Supanburi we go to Japan to face Osaka AC. We played well in the fisrt half, we can manage to stop their attack. Also in second half we manage to take control of the game. Unfortunatly they manage to steal a goal in the 73 minute and it take my team in great frustation.
we try to score in the remaining minute but we fail. at the end they send us out from ACL and send us to Confederation Cup.

Chapter III
Part I : Top of the League and Advancing Conf.Cup

May 1 2016

After a winning streak last month and we find our self advancing in Conf.cup, We start this month with away match to Lamongan.
My player are in good condition and we are ready to beat Persela. We Play with our traditional tactics, even we dominated the game
we can't score a goal, we play very hard to find a goal and to anticipated their movement. Despite all the hard work the match ended with adraw.
We are dispointed with this result, because we think we can win this match

4 May 2016

Theree days after our winning streak stopped by Persela in Lamongan we find our self in Padang to face Semen Padang at Haji Agus Salim Stadium
I made few chnge in the starting line up, Tonnie Cusell, Ohorella, Alfin, rohit chand and basna play they first game as starter. I make a gamble desicion and it worthit
We can score 3 goal in this game and also dominated the game. Julio Cesar Alcorse get his first PoM and score 2 goals and also find the nett for the first time.

"It was a good night for me and for the team, thanks to manager who have faith for me. I replay his faith with this two goals and now i'm aiming for regullar start", Says Julio to the press after the match.

7 May 2016

After a good result in padang we back home to face our next opponent PSM Makassar. We play well but we can find the nett in the first half. Entering the second half things aren't much diffrent we struggling finding the nett so
i make some subtitution replacing Robertinho with Sergio and playing more attacking football. Unfortunately Samuel Sent off in the 74 minute so we are one man short. They took advantage of it but they forgot to defend.
When everybody losing their hope and thinking it will end draw. Segio find the net in the last 40 seconds. It was a dramatic goal an very late goal to get our winning.

11 May 2016

Four day after our late winning match we travel again to Myanmar to face Yadanarbon as we play our last group F match of Conf.cup. We already qualify for the next round so i think no harm to do some rotation in this match.
Alfin and Rohit chand plays in wing back, the rest of the team is same as usual. So not need much time in the 10 minue we already find the net and we score 2 more in the second half. It was a really good match.

The next three match are a boring match. We win In Raja Ampat 3-1, In surabaya 4-0 and back home to smash Barito Putra 6-0.
We have no problem beat them and it was a really good match and now we are ready to face Global in our Conf.cup Second round match

25 May 2016

After the good run in last three match now we back to Asia level match on our journey to win the Conf. cup. We are ready to face Global team from Philippines. We are currently laying in he first position in our national league.

- "It will be a good match up between this two team. They are leading in their national League and now they will facing each other"-

We cannot believe they can score in the 2nd minute of the game but my player not giving it up. Julio Cesar Alcorse Score hattrick and that bring us to 2 goal lead in front of them. But mistake from Vujovic change the game, he sent off in the 43 minutes.
Global take advantage of it despite my attempt to stop them they push us to extra time. It was very fortunate for us Kim can get a goal in 95 minutes and we play defend ever since to secure our victory.

"It was a good hard game for us, we lost Vujovic We play extra time but in the end we win. It is fantastic win and we gain more confidence now to win the trophy" said Alcorse to media after the match.

The match with global ended our fantastic month in May. We advancing to the quarter final of Conf.cup and we still top of the league back home.
