Dear Laowei’s,Most important: Bulls are back! As you can see in this picture, the guy on the picture is Galacticos player in his yellow shirtJ Good. Quit good. Yes, it was really time to count 3 points on our account from our last game; we won 2:1 against the Galacticos. For 3 weeks I was afflicted by doubts and was already thinking of restructuring the team by selling Stoyan to Real Madrid, before losing him without transfer fee at the end of the year. Initial steps and measures, which were communicated in the last 2 weeks online showed first fruits. Seems impending punishments within the financial crisis currently we have hurt some of our player wallets. It was unique, it was impressive. All players arrived 9am in the morning, 30 minutes before the game started! We didn’t have this for the last 36 months, as Chief Coach in the last 12 months had eased rules relating to arrival time, but after recognizing that some players are not reliable, we will in future continue with the new rules. For this week clear punishments for 3 players: Yang and Tony, also Aian. All 3 players each 200RMB to me next week for non appearance. I will not accept any excuse here, if not accepted by the player’s, I will pay out paid yearly amount proportionally, which the players paid to me deducting played games and players can leave the team. I hope that this does not happen and I expecting all 3 players team spirit and not discussion about this. Again, this without any exception, as I have communicated will be applicable for all players, this is about the team, not about the individual player! Also my friend Stoyan will be punished with 50RMB, late is lateJ, sorry fair to every one. I personally spent a lot of time to keep all of us together and will further do more in the future. The squad:
Goalkeeper , Alik ; Dennis ; Stefan Nissl ; Yasin , Eric , Stoyan ; Aydin ; Alan ; Aytekin , Jamie  Man of the Match:
It was difficult for me to decide, so I decided to have 2. Definitively Eric, who scored 2 goals and had an amazing game. On the other hand our goalkeeper, who was also one of the best players, he really saved us in the second half. Thanks Alan! Referee
The sideline referees was as usual completely drunk. Honestly, it was the worst sideline referee since 10 years I am in Shanghai playing soccer, unbelievable! Freek, were the heck they recruit sideline referees? Game HighlightsThe game started for the first 10 min for us, we had more chances than the opponent. But out of no where, suddenly we felt back with 0:1, honestly clear offside. But still, it was for sure a mistake from the Bulls defense, as we shouldn’t stop and wait for the whistle, definitively also Chief Coach responsible for this goal, Ned Kelly was my opponent player. After this goal, we pressured Galacticos and were successful after a cross pass from Stoyan to Eric, who walked through and scored half high to the right corner after 28 minutes. Only 10 min later, Stefan Nissl shot from 22 m to hit the post and the dropped ball Eric only need to push behind the line. The first half ended 2:1 for the Bulls. For the second half, it started good, but after Aydin got injured 5 min after the second half started, we barely had a chance anymore. The Galacticos 100% dominated the game, we were stuck in our half and had only few chances by Eric in the 60 minute and by Yasin in minute 75 [still all of us shocked, how he missed that ball]. We say, we should thanks to Galacticos, who with a “sloppy terrible” performance helped us to win the game. Nice not to have any yellow cards and also not so many fouls. Our next game will May 9th, 2010 against the Hawks. Please Andrea, if you read this, bring us 600RMB for Alan’s Head treatment cost! The time for the game will be announced later.

Hi(gh) Guys,Most important: We play Sunday April 25th, 2010 [Game Start: 9:30am; Meeting Time: 9:00am] Making you high could be one of the strategies for this weekend’s game, but it would cost me too much. Still being shocked from last weekends performance Chief Coach was working all week on his usual “opponent elimination strategy”. The final outcome requires again the full destruction of the Galacticos [in Turkish Galacticos means “The Chickens” as you know]. Through undefined sources Chief Coach was able to get even more information about our opponent than 2 week ago, whereby the lack of information was one of the reasons that our game 2 weeks ago ended with an unsatisfying draw, as certain information were missing. Many of you asked, why our opponent does not call themselves “The Chickens” and what’s the story behind the name “The Galacticos”. It is said that the Galacticos name was initiated in a quite funny way: By accident the Chinese Printing Company translated and printed instead of above stated “The Chickens” the team name “The Galacticos”, as the characters in Chinese look nearly the same, which they were than too lazy to change again. The same Company was then asked by the Bulls to provide the Galacticos a new team logo as a goodwill gesture and for the closed friendship over the years, instead to type “Los Galacticos” the printing Company printed a logo “Loser Galacticos”, which of course satisfied Chief Coach and which was taken without a complaint. Now to our game strategy: According Jose Mourinho, a close friend of mine, this weekend he suggests the Bulls the new system called “Kick-chel-manu-ass”, which already proved being successfully implemented by Inter and Bayern against Manchester United and Chelsea in the last weeks. We will avoid wasting our energy in the middlefield and play the balls rather via the wings and hopefully the weather allows us to have again some long balls, with what we struggled last game a lot. This week and also in future, as promised I will not jump behind some guys and just wait for confirmation, as stated, everyone knows my mobile number or email address to confirm his attendance on time and as stated all communication will be only done on our website www.shanghaipremierleague.net relating to the upcoming games. So at least 3 times a week check for information, so that also our league Website Administrator can be happy about some web traffic. Most important and quite clear: There will be no toleration by me of any discussion on the pitch, everyone shuts up and if I see and criticism of own players, except by myself, he simply leaves the pitch. We play with discipline and not like old chinese or turkish woman at a bazar: “wala wala wala”. Big DadddyB.G.
Dear catastrophic Team,
What the shit was that? El Presidente is not only angry he is really pissed! Completely pissed. Non-stop I receive calls from some French, who now are laughing about us. I am really shocked about Sunday’s performance.
As again, Bulls killed themselves, as I have been informed by some team mates, as I was attending shitty F1. For me, I still have to say, everyone who confirms for Sunday, has to be there, as this is about team spirit. I give a damn shit on explanations, what whatever the fucking reasons are, as honestly, from certain persons I can’t believe it anymore. It is pity that due to no show-ups we played with 9 players! I had 12 confirmations!
I really can’t comment this game and don’t like too, but I have to say, I am completely disappointed. More than disappointed, pissed, pissed and again, really pissed. Every time I am not available something goes wrong.
From now on, no show ups will be charged with 200RMB. If not paid, I don’t care, leave the team and do some ballet dancing or whatever. It can’t be like this! You latest tell me by Friday evening, if you come or not and if you cancel after Saturday 12pm, you will have to pay to me.
We lost 4-0 against a team, which we should have beaten, even if all of us would appear drunk at the pitch. I asked for 4 Bulls goals, not for 4 French goals.
The Turkish nation is still under shock, Chief Coach assistant Oezguer called via a tel conference from Dubai and ask for some heads.
With no regards,
Ladies and Gentleman,
An important day is awaiting us, no, it is not F1 Sunday afternoon! It is not only important, rather significant in Bulls 2010 season to avoid the ridiculous situation to be placed at the end of the season behind the French. It is a situation which will kill Chief Coach for life! I personally have been contacted by our “Hiding Assistant Coach Oezguer Emer” from the deserts of Dubai that he expects clear victory. Currently he is looking for investors to allow us re-transfer Nico Nissl back to China. El Presidente personally spoke to Nico’s manager [some textile guy in China], who by accident is also his father, that it looks good, that we will have him back soon.
This week it was really funny: During a meeting I receive a call from Aydin and he asks me, if there is an opportunity during the week to have more practice, as he wants to find his old form back. So what my response was: I hang up, thought it was a Telemarketing guy, who was bored and tried to make a joke. With current performance Chief Coach sees him clearly on the bench, instead of on the pitch.
Nevertheless I have to admire such attitude, as I guess also for him it is not an easy situation, being placed not within the 3 Top Scorers, as he used to be in the last 4 years.
Most important: I don’t care, how you guys will do it, but as usual, I expect a clean sheet and complete destruction and elimination of the opponent. Please most important, most of these guys are quite well known to many of us and I want fair play, as in some previous games sometimes it got a little emotional.
To prepare ourselves for this game, let’s us analyze what the world says about the French, in order to avoid surprises. Mainly they are known from jokes [Yes, their soccer ist also a joke]:
Q: How do you get a French waiter's attention?
A: Start ordering in Tuerkish.
Q: Why do the French like smelly cheeses?
A: Well, in a room full of French people, you can't really smell the cheese.
"French history: They turn on their friends and surrender to their enemies
Q. How many jokes are there about the French?
A. One, the rest are true
Q: What's the shortest book ever written?
A: French Soccer Heroes.
TOP TEN REASONS FOR BEING FRENCH

A cannibal went into the butcher shop to buy some brains for dinner. She saw that Turkish brain and British brains were $4.95 per lb and French brains were $450.00 per lb. She gasped and asked the butcher if the price of the French brains were a misprint. "No ma'm," answered the butcher. "That is the correct price." "Well, why are the French brains so expensive?" exclaimed the cannibal. "Do you know how many French it takes to get a pound of brains?" replied the butcher.
So Ladies, the best joke: I want victory and would like to laugh about it, not about these jokes. I will make Saturday controls in MINT, BAR Rouge, Tongren Lu, Spot Bar personally. For this important game not alcohol allowed Saturday!
Let’s eliminate French Soccer in Shanghai and let them cry! The expected result is 0-4, but 2-4 is also acceptable.
The one and only,
Chief Coach B.G.
Dear Cows [the performance on Sunday killed the Bulls],
Disappointment on all levels against our opponent Galacticos, which was for sure not what El Presidente was looking for. For sure the weather made its tribute making a game quite difficult due to heavy rain, as each pass was rather like a rocket and often not reachable. Nevertheless, other reasons also contributed for this “non-satisfying” game and the rain was not the only excuse.
Goalkeeper , Right Defense Yang ; Alik ; Erwin ; Dennis [4 performance & 6 (for bla bla to El Presidente)]; Stefan Nissl ; Yasin , Yang , Tony ; Stoyan ; Aydin ; Alan .
Man of the Match:
Yang our striker. Yang really fought for each ball and was running during the entire game, really nice game. Unfortunately the rain made it more difficult for him to use his technique.
The sideline referees was completely drunk. The guys were running around like chicken and were judging the situation relating offside, as I would judge, if I had 10 bottles of Mautai influencing both teams attacks.
The game started as it should start, quite difficult. In the first 20 minutes barely a chance from both teams, as the ball was super difficult to control. The rain in the first 20 min was actually quite strong. In the 25th minute after a freekick from the right centre area, the ball was blocked and moved to a Galacticos Player around the 16m area, who just gave it a shot putting the ball non hold able for our goalkeeper. If anyone thought that the game would change, I need to disappoint you. The ball was passed around, long passes, dribbling here and there, nothing which was endangering our opponent with docent of mistakes. Within the first half we had one shot by Stoyan, not more.
The second half started by pushing early the ball to our opponent’s side, but unfortunately the pressure was just enough to reach the opponents 16m area. A good header by Stoyan missed the goal by 10 cm followed by some shot of Aydin, who waits for a goal for weeks.
When thought that everything was lost, the referee saw, how sad I was on the sideline and with 2 min to go, due to whatever reason, he awarded Bulls a penalty, which was shot by Tony. Aydin did his job by getting this penalty awarded, but I think the way he felt down, was the way my grandma would do.
Just some other issues I would like to state clearly for the next game :
1. We are all not professional, so for me the most important thing is that everyone gets his run. I make all changes during the game and if I make these changes, I do not like to have any discussion with someone telling me what I should do. We agreed I do this and it is as it should be, that’s all!
2. Every time someone else will start from the bench and I am writing this down, who was it the week before. I don’t like to give the feeling to someone that he always starts from the bench.
3. If someone is late and not arrive before 30 min of the game, the first 30 min as Yasin and Erwin this week will stay out of the game. Each will be punished 50RMB.
4. Now with names: Alan, Yang defense, Dennis & Aydin: Stop your complaints and criticize of players during the game, I don’t like to hear this shit. If someone makes a mistake, it is a mistake, what sense it makes stopping and yelling around for no reason. Next time I hear, I promise, I will just put you out. Learn from the Japanese!
Let me know by Thursday evening, if you are available for the weekend.
Dear valued Bulls,
Chief Coach is sitting somewhere out of no where in China and is bored in the hotel after a 3 hours dinner, which gives him quite a lot of time to fix the strategy for Sunday’s match. With all efforts he made it possible that his plane lands at 11:45 in Hongqiao on Sunday and he hopes to make it to this important match. With his unique appearance on Monday evening, directly arriving at Luwan and scoring and preparing one goal, he proved that playing soccer after leaving the plane has some positive sides. I am intending to combine now all my arrivals with my business tripsJ. If I do not arrive on time, Javier will take care of the team, if not Javier, Alan will make it.
So who is our opponent? Hmmmm….first let’s start with the country, England soccer, where the opponent is mainly located, even everyone knows they have no idea about soccer:).
“There is one thing that you can guarantee before every World Cup, and that is England will be labelled as favourites to win the competition. It has happened every tournament since the dawn of time, even during Euro 2008 qualification when The Three Lions failed to progress to the finals. Quite why the press makes the same mistake in building up unrealistic expectations is a mystery, but it still makes the whole world laugh more than a Pele prediction, so please don’t stop for our sake!”
Assistant Presidente Freek Boelen [position lower than El Presidente Bulls] can be compared with the British press predicting that Galacticos will be the favourite for this year. But the reality is not the same, Galacticos best times are over, after Jamie can’t make it to the pitch anymore and Kelly is running around and hunting chicken.
So how all this affects us? Yes, El Presidente Bulls clearly requires preparing our friends the Galacticos to be sent where they came from. Clear strategy: Get them stuck in their half, attack early and demolish Chris the goal keeper. I want non-stop shots, so that he has difficulties to breath. As I have stated, the expected result is 5-1!
El Presidente is expecting nothing else than a win! Each player will pay 50RMB to the cashbox as a punishment, if this game is lost to cover for my medical expenses caused by depression after losing this match.
Please send me message by tomorrow, if you join or not. Game as stated is 13:30.
Big Boss B.G_
