What a season after last season promotion heartache. I continue to be the key player for Volga NN, controlling the midfield and scoring 6 goals, assisting with 8 and putting in an average match rating of 7.27 for 26 appearances!
Promotion and Champions!
A bit peeved at CSKA Moscow getting through too....
Have been such a key player, putting in good games like this one..
As result of my performances I have been given a new contract for 3 more season and now the highest earner at Volga NN!
Not much of a improvement but consistency is a big thing.
Continue to make appearances for NZ (lol at 69!) and Confederations Cup is coming up soon!
Lets start with the internationals first. NZ had qualified for Confederations Cup again, landed in a group with Brazil, Canada and Nigeria.
Predictable results really, despite holding back Brazil to a 1 goal lead and a tight game against the Canadians. Finishing last in the group as usual.
And more sad news. Knocked out of World Cup play offs by Saudi Arabia. Might never play in another World Cup again.
Despite the internationals I had another strong season with Volga NN. I was again the key player for the team, 26 appearances with 5 goals and 6 assists as I attempted to drag the team out of the relegation places.
4th Highest in Russian Premier Division for Key passes!
Was not enough to keep Volga NN away from relegation places though, finishing 3rd last.
Survived the play offs easily. Get to play another season in the Premier Division!
Not all rosy and cosy at the moment with the club, as another player got rewarded with more money than I am on and he is not even the best player, let alone a backup in the team so I kicked up a fuss! Plus I deserve a bonus due to my form too!
