We're just past halfway through the season and Whampoa Rangers are looking a solid bet to finish above the dropzone - a remarkable turnaround, following heavy defeats earlier in the season. Indeed, coming out of the gates, the club were staring relegation in the face. However, this good run of results has not fully convinced the Rangers faithful. Skeptics point to a highly favourable fixture list, which allowed the team to amass crucial points through wins over much weaker clubs. Coming up soon, however, are match-ups against clearly stronger opposition. Manager Eddie Bono makes no attempt to hide his tactics: his team will be set up with next week in mind.
