    26th December 2012

    "In bizarre fashion Celtic manager Neil Lennon has found his contract with the club terminated with immediate effect. In the weekends game against there fierce rivals, RANGERS, Lennon was jeered by a section of Rangers fans behind his dugout, he then proceeded to jump in to the crowd and physically beat on a poor Rangers fan, after he talked about Lennon's mother. So the club have hired first team coach JUNIOR CONWAY at least until the end of the season. This is an unbelievable hire as Conway has not ever been in a management role, but Sir Ian Bankier stated, that they wanted to keep the position within the club, and with Conway being a lifelong fan, would hope that the desire of Conway's passion for the club, would generate a great feeling within the changing room and bring in as much silverware as possible this season. Unfortunetly Conway was unable for comment as he was crying like a little girl at being employed in this major position at his boyhood club."

    So this is my first story and i hope that i can keep you all interested... My main aim is to have won the Champions League in at most my first 5 seasons.. Is this possible, i don't know. But throughout my adventure i will keep posting regularly and hopefully entice more of you to have a go at this challenge. As for now im still in pre-season, but once pre-season is over i will post back with my months analysis. So here we go.........

    HAIL, HAIL

    Unfortunetly, and sadly one of the first moves i made after doing my tactics was to put Scott Brown up for sale. I was dissapointed in myself for this as he is a legend, and the heart of our club in real life, but he was 4th best CM and i really needed to bring in more transfer fees and bump up the wage budget. This period also saw Anthony Stokes on the move, which im happy with as i got a tidy sum for a player that wouldn't get a shout in, in my squad. Paddy McCourt (who looks like a proper alchy in his profile pic) and Kris Commons were the other bigger names to be shifted.
    This did help fund for improvements in the squad, which im trying to focus more on Europe with. As you can see Yaya Sanogo (My main man last year) and Manuel Pamic (expensive back up for Izzaguirre) commanded the bigger fees, which i've done in installments to ease the bite out of my current budget. What isn't shown here is the arrivals of Adryan and Urby Emmanuelson, due in a few days. Hoping to add a couple more to add depth for Europe.


    Friendlies


    Celtic 4 - 1 Celtic Reserves
    (Wanyama, Mulgrew, Forrest, Samaras)


    Celtic 7 - 0
    Glasgow University
    (D.Wilson 2, Sanogo 3, Hooper, Ledley)

    Celtic 0 - 3 Werder Bremen

    Celtic 8 - 0
    Milton
    (Sanogo 4, Nouioui 2, Ledley, Commons)

    Wrexham 0 - 4 Celtic
    (Wanyama 2, Hooper, Samaras)

    Altrincham 0 - 5 Celtic
    (Commons 3, Watt 2)

    So as you can see the only test was Werder Bremen and we failed, very misrably, in my opinion. But we haven't failed to find the net in the piss easy games lmao. Stand out performers of pre-season have to be Yaya Sanogo, James Forrest and Victor Wanyama

    I've gone for the tactic that i have used over the last 2 years with Celtic, my beloved 4-4-2 wingers stylie. With Forrest Running down the touchline whipping in drilled crosses and Big Sammy cutting in from the left. Full backs run down the touchline overlapping with the wingers to cross from byline when free to do so. With Kayal and Wanyama we should have a strong and creative centre of the park. And as seen already Big Vic isn't scared to chip in with the goal tally. I do have back up tactics, but haven't used them yet, and hope i don't need to. If this situation arises later on, i will update with the tactic.

    So August 1st is nearly upon us bringing Champion's League qualifier against Debrecen of Hungary and a 1st league game at home to Aberdeen. Initial thoughts of the season, i am very confident of taking it by storm, but as this is my 1st save of the 2013, im sure i will encounter a problem here and there. But as i said in my intro, it's all about Europe for me and the Bhoys. Next update will be after August is done!

    Thanks mate, you should try one offline, it's really fun, you don't find out how strong a team they are until you look at their squad and play with them, I'm sure you'll get the champions league with the boys, you've got a strong team there, good luck anyway mate



  10. AUGUST


    So the transfer market is now closed and after a bit of wheeling and dealing, (i think
    ) i'mhappy with the players i have added to the squad. Urby Emanuelson deal initially fell thru as i didn't have enough cash in the transfer budget, so tried again with a loan, and then Arsenal came and stole him off me! I did however bring back an oldie in Shaun Maloney as back up for each wing, and to also fill a spot of 'homegrown' and 'trained by the club' for Europe. Adryan is the most exciting signing for me, as i haven't signed him before, but have read rave reviews. At the moment i'm thinking of training him as a CM as i don't play with AMC, and am in need of a bit of cover there. Unfortunetly, deadline day didn't bring in any major names, but happy overall with additions

    So onto the games played thru August, and with an initial shock in first Premier League game against Aberdeen (bastards kept scoring) the rest of my games have pretty much been won comfortably. Got thru to the Champion's League group stages, and have been drawn one hell of a group. But i am actually quite pleased with it, as this is what europe is all about. Group is as follows: A.C Milan, Man City and Anderlecht. Quietly confident of at least a draw away at both Milan and City (i say this atm). I have also had the best draw imaginable so early in the season for the League Cup, at home to RANGERS!!!! Bring it on!!

    This is my preferred squad of 18, but every player you see in my squad will get good chances throughout the season, as i think the key to Europe, is making sure you have your strongest fittest squad possible on European match days.

    RESULTS


    Celtic 7 - 1 Debrecen (CL)
    (Sanogo 2, Samaras 2, Ledley, Wanyama, O.G)

    Celtic 6 - 4
    Aberdeen
    (Sanogo 3, Hooper 2, Izaguirre)


    Debrecen 0 - 1 Celtic (CL)
    (Samaras)

    Ross County 0 - 2 Celtic
    (Maloney, Nouioui)


    Molde 1 - 3 Celtic (CL)
    (Sanogo 2, Hooper)

    Celtic 4 - 1
    Molde (CL)
    (Hooper, Watt, Sanogo, Forrest)


    PLAYER OF THE MONTH

    Without a doubt it has to be my man Yaya Sanogo, as always for me he has been a beast. 8 goals in 4 games, one assist (not great) and 2 M.O.M. I'd like to say Big Vic Wanyama was a close second, but Yaya stormed it. Young James Forrest is also looking good. But first 'PLAYER OF THE MONTH' goes to Mr. Sanogo
