December 2019 and January 2020
Apologies for the slight delay in updating lads. It was my birthday recently and, while I didn't have anything planned, my missus did, so I was busier than I was initially expecting.
I can see why Dale handed the save over when he did! December was an absolute monster of a month with nine games in total. We got off to a crazy start with a 5-4 win over Hearts in the League Cup Final. We were actually 4-1 up, but Stephen Mallan was sent off after an hour and we collapsed to 4-4. Thankfully, Selim Amallah got us a winner 8 minutes from time. Not good enough defensively though.
We struggled through the early exchanges of the month if truth be told, as the team adjusted to the tactical tweaks I had implemented, but ended it fairly well and have stormed through a short January without conceding a goal, including a 3-0 romp over Celtic at Ibrox. We missed Lee Cormack for a while due to injury, but he's back fighting fit and in the goals again. We've looked far more dominant recently and even managed to make 10 changes for the Scottish Cup game against Airdrieonians and still win comfortably.
We've retained a comfortable lead at the top of the SPL, with Hearts now our closest challengers. Celtic have suffered recently, with three successive defeats, and have recently sacked manager, Paul Hartley, who only last six months in the job.
On the flipside, we are the epitome of stability at the moment. A settled first team, with solid rotational options and a stellar bank balance. I have used some of our wealth to improve both the youth and training facilities at a total cost of £7.5m.
