Dundee Utd v Celtic – Scottish Cup

I’m expecting this to be a cracker, a nail biting game which will once again show the best of Scottish football after weeks of our game being dragged through the mud.
I have some great memories of Scottish Cup finals contested between these two in the 80’s. In both games Utd held a one nil lead and it was hard to see how we were going to break them down and get back into the game. Thankfully on both occasions we found away and won both cups at the death leading to some of the best celebrations I’ve ever been involved in. Especially the 1988 final which secured the double in our centenary year.
Sunday’s game should be a cracker. Two sides who like to attack and press the opposition playing at a tight packed stadium. Utd are a good side but suffer from a lack of consistency. Celtic are also a good side but have been highly consistent over a good period of time and for that reason I feel that Celtic will prevail.
I think this type of game suits the current Celtic team as it is basically a must win game and I feel that will bring out the best in the team. The manager won’t be tinkering this week he’ll play his strongest 11 and have a bench full of experienced subs at his disposal.
The first part of the Treble can be tied up next week, the second part is all but wrapped up this should give the players every incentive they need to kick on and get one hand on the third part.
Hail, Hail

  1. Hoping and praying mate. Have fingers and toes crossed for this one! We are definitely the stronger side but you never know with cup ties, and they are a decent outfit. We need it though, so mon the hoops!
