Tiller FC - Triple Season Update
2014 Season Review
Following a very successful campaign the pressure was on to retain our place in the First Division. The squad was strengthened with a number of players and we just needed to ensure a steady start to the season. This would be tough as we were plunged into heavy debt by the necessary expansion of the stadium.
League Table - All in all a really good season, enabling us to move on to the next level, couldn't quite believe it.
Tiller are Champions!
Klimenta - Had an absolute belter of the season. He played well but not quite sure he has the necessary to really make it at the higher level.
Kouadio - The rock, my Captain, a Legend! He really solidifies things at the back, and also scores a few from corners, a real asset.
Knezevic - The other DC who came in and hit the ground running, a very useful addition to the squad.
Ouatarra - I'm expecting big things from this guy as he looks like he will get better as he adjusts to life in Norway.
2015 Season Review
Well now we're in the top flight it is a battle to stay there. We are still semi-pro which doesn't help the situation in bringing in decent players! Saying that they did set a decent transfer budget and wage structure. It was just a case of fighting for every point! The Youth facilities were in need of an upgrade, so that then put another dent in the coffers! Mid-way through the season a board takeover happened and i managed to retain my position within the club, although there was no investment.
I did manage to bring in this guy, who i have big hopes for - Jhonny Pajon.
League Table - A pretty solid season really given everything that happened. The aim for next season will be to push up the table and se where we go from there!
Kouadio - Yet another good season, although this was effected by injury and did cost us in the end.
Knezevic - Proved to be a standout performer in the season, and certainly added a few much needed goals.
Bitarov - A new signing who seems to have settled quickly. Looks to have a decent future with Tiller.
Ouatarra - He is beginning to find his feet in the league and managed to find the net a few times too.
2016 Season Review
The aim was to try and push up the table and see if we could make mid-table. This meant a few new players would be needed, but still being semi-pr was proving to be the biggest hurdle. THe only players who were interested in joining us were youngsters and that wasn't giving me the experience we needed. That said, the boys had a blinder! We went on an amazing unbeaten run from mid season, which saw us pushing for European football. Not just any European Football, we were there or thereabouts for the Champions League. Imagine my amazement as the teams around us began to choke and we would be crowned champions if we could avoid defeat in the last game!
Champions League here Tiller come!
Ouatarra - I told you he would come good! 19 goals in 19 games, back of the net! League's Top Scorer, and Young player of the Year, not a bad season then!
Knezevic - Another solid season from the Serb.
Bitarov - Going from strength to strength, adding a few goals and assists.
Moreno - A major coup for the club getting this Argentinian youngster. He was the midfield general and knew how to thread a pass.
Kouadio - Back to his best, what a club man!
Pajon - Now this guy started to show his class alongside Moreno. Goals, assists the lot!
At last the Tiller turn professional, hurray!
Well after all that i need a lie down! I hope you can see why i haven't posted my season reviews, i just keen to press on!
I shall keep you all posted as my maiden voyage into Champions League football progresses.
Good luck one and all
