Let’s Get This Tie Put to Bed

Well we should have been looking forward to a match with Dundee Utd  tonight however due to a poor home performance we find ourselves in a Scottish Cup replay against Arbroath (take yer thermals)

Joe Ledley and Kris Commons are ruled out while Gary Hooper may be a doubt as he did not train yesterday. Another draw back is that tonight will not be a night for silky football. We passed that chance up at Celtic Park playing on a great surface. I would expect the pitch at Gayfield will be hard so it may be a night for long balls and runners.

I think we can afford to play 3 at the back similar to Saturdays system as I expect Broony and Victor to boss the midfield. I’m sure the Gaffer has made it perfectly clear that he will not tolerate a repeat performance of the first game.

Tonight the players will have to show grit and determination and I would hope the game is finished as a contest by half time. However you never know but I suppose you never know till the game starts.

Mon the hoops

No disrespect to Arbroath but we should be looking at at least a 2 goal win.

    I am back commenting though perhaps the less said about the way we went to bed at Arbroath the better.

    The site seems very quiet. I know I have been away but it looks like there have been no blogs since the 12th and comments have been few and far as well. I hope I am not missing something. By the way, I attached a wee note of thanks to my email that I had hoped would be posted. Can you advise me if there is a problem? Meantime, it is good to be able to chatter again. I look forward to some fresh stuff for discussion. Even my friend Blogger seems to have gone very quiet.
