Yesterday, Kyogo won the player of the month award for August.
That is probably the least surprising announcement I’ve heard since Jota winning the goal of the month award. Which itself was the least surprising news since Ange won the manager one.
Do you see the emergence of a pattern here?
Well if you do we should all get used to it, because I reckon this is the model for the season ahead. Celtic dominant everywhere and with everything.
With the form of this team we could keep racking these up all season long.
How many awards did Ange win last year? How many did individual Celtic players win?
Christ, if the players had parcelled out the spectacular goals over a couple of months instead of having a half dozen contenders in August alone we could have sewn that one up for half a year.
Later on I’m going to write about how Graham Spiers latest podcast guests think the campaign is going to pan out, but let’s just say that the hacks are coming around to what has been obvious to us since the season kicked off; that we’re going to leave everyone in the dust.
Some of these guys are going to need new wings on their house to keep all these awards in.
Ange in particular is going to need the proverbial bigger boat. If he keeps up winning manager of the month gongs he’s gonna end up on The Open Goal webcast more often than its hosts.
All this is great for the club, of course, and it keeps Ibrox firmly in the shade where it belongs.
Long may this continue.
