Congratulations on winning the title again, very unlucky against Lyon, but I'm sure that you will make the knockout stages anyway. :D

Doing nicely in group :) Honestly I expected you to lose more heavily :P Keep up the good work!
Next year you will be stronger as your young stars grow up, but only serious problem you are facing in future is to get those stars to renew contracts :/

Or just sell them big money before that ;)

November + December Update


Hi guys, we had three more games to play this season, all in the Champions League. I didn't expect to get any results from these matches but we would give it our best shot. Here we go:



2-2 Draw vs Lyon (A) Champions League, 3.11.15.


Lyon:
Michel Bastos 18'
Lisandro Lopez 50'
Ruben Yttergard Jenssen (9.0)

KuPS:
Jerry Voutilainen 17'
Enock Kwakwa 23'


2-0 Loss vs Leverkusen (H) Champions League, 25.11.15.


KuPS:
---

Leverkusen:
Renato Augusto 35'
Stefan Kiessling 44'
Renato Augusto (8.4)


2-1 Loss vs FC Porto (A) Champions League, 8.12.15.


FC Porto:
Joao Moutinho 25'
Aymen Abdennour 62'
Joao Moutinho (8.4)

KuPS:
Enock Kwakwa 68'



Champions League Group B





So we claimed a point against Lyon and we performed very well against Leverkusen and FC Porto. Playing against such great opponents was an amazing way to end our season. The next update will be the season review. Until next time, stay tuned!

You could look at it as not winning any UCL games, which is bad, or look at it as not losing by much, or even drawing games, which is good.

Season Report


Hi guys, our third season is now over. Here is a run-down of our runs in each competition:


Veikkausliiga


I was hoping to win the league for a third consecutive season, this is how we did:




Veikkausliiga Table


We did extraordinary this season, remaining unbeaten yet again. We claimed twenty-six wins of thirty-three games, scored the most goals in the league and conceded the least goals in the league. We had a very impressive plus fifty goal difference, which is quite extraordinary.



Once again I do not claim the Manager of the Season award but Voutilainen claimed the Player of the Year award and the top three for the Rookie of the Year award were all from KuPS. I'm happy with our awards tally this season.

Can we win the league a fourth time in a row? That is what I am aiming for!


Finnish Cup


My aim was to win the Cup another time. Here were the results in this competition:



I was very surprised not to have to play HJK in the cup this season. After a very tense penalty shoot-out, Nick de Haan scored the winning penalty for us! I really want to win the cup again next season.


League Cup


I don't see the League Cup as any more than a chance to see how my young players can perform. This is how we did:



Another season, another trophy. Once again, Honka were our opponents but we broke them with consumate ease. I don't mind if we do not perform well in the League Cup next season, I just want to get my youth players good experience.


Champions League


My goal for the Champions League this season was to battle to gain a group stage spot. Here were the results:



We managed to beat Celtic yet again in the qualifiers. We got another tough group this year but we did well to gain a point. I really hope to be able to claim my first win in the Champions League Group Stages next season, provided we get there. Prize money is very important to us.

So that is that! Until next time, stay tuned!

Johnson: "It's All For The Fans"


Nick Johnson:
"The fans have been amazing since the very first day that I took over KuPS as a manager. They have supported me when I just started off. They supported me when I had personal issues and now I have everything to give to them. Now I am getting married on 4th July at the Savon Sanomat Areena and I have invited all the fans to come witness it.

The fans mean so much to me. They have passionately supported myself and the team through every single game. The sound of their cheers, of their battle-cries and of their celebrations are magnificent. I have done my best to bring glory to the Savon Sanomat Areena and have managed to bring in nine trophies in three seasons. This is all thanks to the fans. They motivated myself and the team to keep going and we won what we could. Hopefully we can one day bring home the European Cup.

My goal is to bring European glory back for the fans. It has always been for them. I want to make the magnificent KuPSi sing Banzai with joy!"
