The bhoys lost to the odd goal to Atletico Madrid tonight and it was an “odd goal”. Kayal either judge the flight of the ball or he just bailed out the road. From where I was sitting for a split second I though Forster had got enough on it to turn it around the post but it was a powerful shot and it basically just deflected off his hand into the goal. Bit of a poor goal to loss but to be honest they could have scored a couple more.
Big Sammy ran them ragged in the first half, second half he was a bit quieter but Atletico were starting to show their class then. Over all we were unlucky in front of goal a few times ourselves especially in the first half up until they scored. Upto that point Celtic were the best team on the park but that goal took the wind out our sails for a bit.
The bhoys kept going though throughout the game. Loosing Joe Ledley and big Victor was a bit of a blow but it was good to see big Charlie back from injury. Scott Brown came on and ran about for a while. Untill he sorts his contract out I’ve not really got much to say about him.
So we can still qualify if we beat Udenese but I’m not too bothered as I think we’ll have enough games to keep us busy after the new year.
So well done to the bhoys for showing the fighting spirit.
