2017/2018 Season

Broke my **** toe! Lucky it was during mid winter season break but still missed a few league games.



Champions!




My second medal this season!


16 appearances and 2 goals plus 3 assists with rating of 7.11


CSKA Moscow got second in the league for the season. Hopefully I can play with them next season.

World Cup 2018 Russia

As expected I was selected into the 30 man squad. I have shined in the warm up games, netting a man of match for performance over San Marino


Tough opponents to play!


World Cup report coming next!​

2018 World Cup

So close to getting a draw with Portugal until late winner sunk NZ



Against the World Champions, NZ were never gonna get anything out of the match.



My worst performance ever in a game against Nigeria! 4.2 match rating! NZ out of the group stages.



Surprise winners!





Another injury layoff! 2 months. Will affect my chances getting a loan or game time as I won't be back till September.

2018-2019 Season -5th Season in my career

Still injured and not happy about my contract terms due wanting more promises of first team football.



And still turning them down, getting labelled as a rebel by the media.



Was not available to be loaned out, so was a back up for the first team, made appearances for the team in Champions League, most as a sub but at least I am getting experiences at the highest level



Finally I get given a new contract with a sizable wage boost, tying me down for another 3 seasons.



End of the season saw me make 8 league appearances and 17 total appearances with two goals in all games.
CSKA Moscow did poorly in the league this season, dropping down to eighth. We still qualified for the Europa Cup.



But we still won the Russian Cup!



My 3rd trophy in my career so far and I am only 20!



My attributes continue to grow considerably.







Internationally I have made 6 more appearances since the world cup in friendlies, netting 3 goals! Bringing my total up to 26 apps and 6 goals.

2019-2020 - 6th Season

I would call this season a major break through for me, 24 League appearances, played in all the cup competitions including group stages of Europa Cup. Despite the appearances I am still being used as a sub but at least I am versatile for the manager to be used which means I am often around the first team.


A poor season for CSKA Moscow, 7th in league and crashed out of Europa Cup, only consolidation is the Russia Super Cup, which is now my 4th trophy in my career.




My Attributes are increasing slowly, starting to see most of them reaching 14.




Scored another 2 goals and picked up 11 more apps with NZ, bringing it up to 39 apps and 8 goals.

Injury History

Lucky break for me last season, only just picking up the flu.


Hope I can crack on more next season, also might upload some updates of other leagues if anyone requests them​

Internationals

July - September 2020
Japan 2020 Olympics

NZ drawn in a tough group, I was selected into the side for my second Olympics.













Played in all of the games and only played well in the Japan game. Brazil went onto winning the trophy.

Oceania Nations Cup 2020

I actually appeared in the last one which NZ won but received no trophy or achievement for some reason(bug?), anyway wanted to point out the assists for this tournament! 6!


Confederations Cup Draw

2020-2021 Season - 7th Season

And I just keep getting better! 25 League appearances, most of them starting and netting in 3 goals plus 2 assists, 2 POMs and a rating of 7.16!



Best player in the team in terms of match ratings!



I also was awarded a new contract, extending my stay till June 2023.




But the bad news is that despite my best season, CSKA Moscow were relegated in the relegation/promotion playoff match after a poor season, losing on away goals!





At least we manged to win the Super Cup again.



My value has skyrocketed from last season, from 400K to 1.4M!



Just 5 caps of reaching 50 for NZ.

Was called up for the Confederations Cup squad. Only to pick up another long injury in the off season!



NZ did poorly without me anyway, losing all the games.



Now I will have to adjust to life in the First Division, with many of my team-mates wanting to leave and a long term injury. Going to be a interesting season.​

2021-2022 - 8th Season

Worst Season EVER!

Lets start with NZ being knocked out of World Cup Playoffs by Jamaica

A good riddance as I didn't want to play in Qatar anyway!


Before our promotion campaign even began, I spoke out against the club as I felt they were no longer big in the Russian Leagues due to poor performances and the relegation from the last season.



And oh boy it backfired on me, banished to the U21s and only 3 substitution appearances for the first team for the whole season, putting my regular NZ spot under pressure. And never got transfer listed at all, looks like I will have to walk out on a free after next season.


CSKA Moscow continue to under perform as usual. WTF happened to this club?


Next season looks like to be my last with CSKA Moscow, I won't be accepting another contract and my current one does not expire till Jun 2023. Hopefully I can get more first team football before then to start impressing suitors.

2022-2023 - 9th Season

Last Season at CSKA Moscow
Knowing this was going to be my last season with CSKA Moscow, the manager decided he needed me after all, making 27 appearances for the first team, most of them starting. 3 goals and 8 assists with 1 PoM and an average rating of 6:86.



The media hit out at me early in the season after a few underwhelming performances that caused concern for the club and international selections. But I shut them up with some spectacular games!







One of the best games I ever played, 3 assists!



Despite my performances CKSA Moscow continued to under-perform in the league



At 24 years old, I am starting to reach my peak years and with my contract running out I need to find another club to continue my development. Also I have passed the 50 caps mark with NZ, now on 55 caps and 8 goals!



Compare it to my first screenshot! Look at my composure, from 3 to 10!



With July rolling around, I wonder who my next club will be....​

01st July 2023

Got released from CSKA Moscow and there was no initial interests in me. Fast forward later in the month, a few Russian clubs are sniffing after me but no offers.



August

Still nothing. Just a few call ups for NZ. Not fazed yet.

September

Nothing! Not even a foreign club is looking.

October

Might have to reconsider my career!

November

Paranoia kicks in! Living in a rundown Moscow apartment now to save money. Will I ever find work again?

December

What has gone wrong with my life? Forever cast aside to play meaningless games for NZ?

01st January 2024

A lifeline! My agent told me Volga NN were interested in me. With tears streaming down my hairy face I promptly accept a contract for half of the money I was earning at CSKA Moscow. Time for me to play in the Russian First Division again!

Time to pack up and move to Nizhny Novgorod!





Scored on my debut for Volga NN!


And football can be a cruel mistress...


At least I am a key player now for the club


Injury disrupted my chance to shine for the first team. Only 4 appearances, and 1 goal from my debut. Remember I joined them in January


I can take solace from the fact I am a valuable player for the team


Volga NN made the playoffs for promotion


Only to lose in the Play offs! Just have to try again!
