Doing nicely in group Honestly I expected you to lose more heavily 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
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!
Hi guys, our third season is now over. Here is a run-down of our runs in each competition:
I was hoping to win the league for a third consecutive season, this is how we did:
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.
Manager of the Season
Player of the Season
Team of the Season
Most Man of the Match Award
Top Goalscorer Award
Top Assissts Award
Goal of the Season Award
Rookie of the Season Award
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!
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.
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.
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.
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!"
