So….69 and counting, eh?
Our domestic invincibility continues, yet, amazingly, we still have the online moaners and grumpers coming out with all manners of nonsense!
It can’t be denied that the PSG defeats were a horror show, and the disappointing end of our Champions League campaign, at home to Anderlecht was also a low-light. BUT, for me, progress was still made, with us now having the chance to see how we manage against the remaining Europa League teams.
And when that Draw of Death came out in August, surely we all knew the best we could hope for was that Europa League spot?
Back to domestic matters – yes, despite winning, with ease, the first piece of silverware available, there are still many fans who are just not happy at how ‘rubbish’ they think we are this season!
Yet still unbeaten, still the only team who can win the treble, still with this ‘off-form’ Scott Sinclair assisting and scoring goals. Still all in love with our Kieran Tierney! And what about this year’s fantastic Xmas Ad and last night’s beautiful SpiritofCeltic candle display lighting up the Kerrydale Clover? THE FEEL-GOOD FACTOR IS STILL THERE.
Certain players are often singled out for a dip in form, and of course, sometimes criticism is due. Stuart Armstrong for one, has had some recently, yet last night against Hamilton, just look at the pass he put in for James Forrest’s goal. And though he’s not always been a regular start, no-one can fail to see the quality of Olivier Ntcham. Again, from last night, watch the replay and see how much space he created for his goal, and how quick and confident his arm was up to demand the ball.
The next thing to ‘worry’ about, for me, is just WHO is going to end our domestic unbeaten run? IF it’s this season, there are surely some teams we DON’T want it to be against – no need to state the obvious, surely?!
looking at the fixtures, if I have to (and it is with reluctance of course), I would graciously grant the honour to either Partick Thistle on the 23rd Jan, because I have a friend there and they’re struggling – or possibly Hamilton on the 7th of April, because I’d hope our 7-in-a-row is almost guaranteed by then. And the thought of getting beat by certain other teams is not an appealing one!
I’m sure there are many of you who have different opinions, and hey, that’s fine too – but just don’t join in with the Boo-Bhoys (and Ghirls)!
