Celtic - 2019/2020 Season
First year of the new challenge and we are starting at Celtic. We'll dive straight in and talk about transfers. Realistically the squad is good enough to win the treble in Scotland without the need to sign any players. However, I decided we needed to add a few players and move some names out to get the squad playing the way I would like.
Straight away I decided to sign a CM and CB and went with the Scottish due of Ferguson and Findlay. Both relatively cheap deals so was please to get these over the line.
The last transfer I made was for Ajorque from Strasbourg to play as the target man, I spent most of my pre season scouting for a target man and we managed to scout this lad and pick him up on deadline day for a fairly large fee in Scottish football.
A lot of players left the club over the season. All the transfers down to Soro were in the Summer and from Soro down these were done in January. Not a lot to say about most of them, Gordon was allowed to leave as he was third choice behind Forster and Bain in goals. Julien was allowed to leave on loan after a poor few starts for us. Rogic and Bayo were sold after only playing a handful of games in the first half of the season.
As expected we won the league fairly comfortably with 32 wins from 38 games, I have to say I was gutted to miss out on the 100 point mark and the 100 goals scored. But look at how solid our defence was, Forster in goals was phenomenal, as were the entire back line all season.
We lost in our first game of the league cup, now what we wanted but with a rotated side I only had myself to blame.
The Scottish Cup was the big one of the two cup competitions.
We had a fairly routine run to the final and oh my the final did not fail to deliver with drama.
We had goals, we had a sending off and we had a club legend score the winner from the spot in injury time, what more could you want.
As a Scottish club we started back in the first qualifying round so were delighted to do as well as we did.
The overall group table ended as follows:
We were pleased to finish third and looked forward to a cup run in the Europa League. This however wasn't to be. We were knocked out on away goals sadly.
Overall our squad played phenomenal. Edouard with 45 goals in all comps was insane. Christie bagging 22 assists was another great achievement for the season.
Edouard cleaned up the awards as well:

As you can see we have a long way to go.
Hopefully you are still here at the bottom of the post and enjoyed the read. We won the double this season, I would like to win the treble next year and then more club having sealed 10 titles in a row..
