After tonights draw against Kilmarnock, which might I add could have been worse, seeing as all of a sudden we have become shadows of our former selves, I have discovered some outlandish but sensational news.
Sensational news aside for the moment. Tonight we all expected a win, as we always do. Our possession counted for little much at all and poor Hoopy was brought down to earth badly to add to our growing casualty list.
Killie should be a 3 points in the bag match but now it is a ‘used to be a typical 3 pointer of a result’. We should be entertaining Killie to a football masterclass not a football foot-in-ass.
We cannot but blame our glamourous early dominance in the nursary years of the noughties for our expectations being so highly lasered into our brains that some of the uneducated amongst us in the pubs and paradise now STILL think we “could pish on Barca, messi or not”.
The early noughties spine of the team was immense compared to that of now, even though with Lenny this team is still youthful and developing with Forrest, McGinn, Towell et al but we are lightyears behind the spine of an on form Rab Douglas, Bobo in his prime, Stan Petrov in his wonder years (where I thought he was touching his world class plateau) with Sutty and Henrik levelling it out.
We need to be serious and take a wake up call. Martin O’Neill did well, Strachan of all people succeeded MONs champions league notches by surpassing into the last 16, he won the accolades and some of us still disliked him. Mowbray was the managerial equivilent of leaving your 5 year old in charge of a loaded shotgun and Lenny…I want him to do well.
The glory years seem echelons behind us now and we need to lower our visions, pipe dreams and expectations, but only for a while bhoys.
The economic climate has forced us into signing the cheap but useful and the squad filler type player who has just enough education to perform. We have also again signed the ‘drop into the far east pool’ of players that on the outset looked like money spinners but I disagree with those who try to say that. My reason for disagreement being is the lads we have signed can play some decent football (see Cha and Ki).
The signings we have made or will make will not be packing the wallet weight of those of the McCann years but I am the sort of guy who likes a bargain and if he turns out like a Bobo, Agathe or even, god forgive me for using the lords name in vain, a Henrik no Bhoys fan would find criticism in that and accept these low cost transfers with open arms.
We cannot dwell on the ‘what we had’ and look at the cards we have in our current deck. As for signings? The best signing we could get in January is that we stick to what we have add a slight dash of cheap quality and we will be ok for the title run in.
As for my sensational
news….WE NEED TO KEEP THE BELIEF AND NOT F¤¤K!NG MOAN AT OUR LADS. Its a disease that spreads and destroys their confidence.
Support with pride but not ask to deport them and snide.
