After a 2019 campaign which saw the Eagles bow out disappointingly in the semi-finals, the Eagles went out and acquired Tim Kelly from the Cats to add more superstar talent to an already star-studded midfield and push the Eagles further into premiership contention in 2020.

This means Simpson is somewhat under pressure to an extent in the sense that the Eagles now need a top-four finish and at least a preliminary finals berth for their year to be in any consideration as a success.
