I said from the start that the first time Sevco Scotland came up against a well organised SPL team in a cup competition they would be beaten. I was wrong. My reasoning was that if you are constantly playing 3rd division football then you will struggle when you have to step up and play a team in the top tier.
So Sevco draw Motherwell which I would describe as a well organised SPL side. Motherwell drew Sevco in the cup in the League Cup in September at Ibrox and get beat 2-0. Now at this point Motherwell had got off to a decent start in the SPL This was only one episode in a catalogue of disastrous results against McCall’s former paymasters. For example Motherwell would play Celtic in the SPL and it would be a tight game,the following week they would travel to Ibrox and get beat 4 -0 by the now dead RFC.
The strange thing is Celtic were a better team than the old RFC.
Now we move onto Terry Butcher and his ICT team. I don’t like the man and he certainly has no time for Celtic yet to give him credit his team normally like to play to win regardless of who they are playing. Butchers record against Celtic and the Dead RFC is pretty decent and he sends his side out to be combative against his old paymasters.
Last night Butcher showed McCall up for what he is a guy who is prepared to sacrifice his own team just so Dead RFC/Sevco win. Even Motherwell fans notice this. After their recent defeat to Sevco there was a discussion on a Motherwell forum questioning their managers attitude towards his former club. Now when your own fans start noticing a pattern of one sided results against one team what are the rest of us meant to think?
I still stand by my theory that any well organised SPL team maybe withe exception of Dundee should beat 3rd division Sevco. Well if their manager asks them to go for it.
