Since that game Charlie Mulgrew has been without doubt our most consistent and reliable player so much so that in the past week he has salvaged 4 pts for a struggling team. Some better payed players should go and have a word with Charlie about commitment and dedication.
Yesterday was yet another frustrating day in a frustrating season but we picked up 3pts which as good as it gets just now. I must admit after Aberdeen scored for a while I was sitting thinking if we don’t win this then it’s going to be a long winter of sitting at pointless SPL games. Fortunately enough to give the team their dues they buckled down again and Big Charlie got what would prove to be the winner.
If there was ever a game that called out for Paddy McCourt it was yesterdays. We were playing too many square passes with no real penetration. Paddy certainly changed that with his direct running and sheer skill. He was unlucky not to get a goal and Hooper let hi down when Paddy threaded through a nice ball only for Hooper to totally fluff the chance.
There is a lesson to be learned here. Up until Paddy came on we only had one decent piece of direct play and Ki scored at the end of it. We have two tough games coming up against Hibs, they shouldn’t really be tough games but at the moment every game is and that does not look as if it’s going to change any time soon. I just hope that the players and management can pull themselves out of this current malaise.
As things stand just now all we can do is be happy with the 3pts and hope things improve.
On Saturday there will be a Demo held by Fans Against Criminalisation in George Square, Glasgow to oppose the new bill. The organisers are asking people to Assemble in the square around 12.00pm as the Demo will begin at 12.30pm.
The Celtic Network will be there to support this demonstration and would ask that if you are in Glasgow and are against this proposed bill to come along and lend your support.
