A good American once commented on this blogs former life of: “Possession for possession sake“. Celtic‘s version of it is: “Possession furfucks sake.” , which was our lot on Wednesday. Today was different. The first half saw us unable to muster any sort of notworthy possession but the second saw purposeful use of the ball.
Super Hooper made the difference just before half-time. He also made a difference to Stokes who was Steptoe’s Pony in his last outing and looked every inch of a Sunderland reserve who found his feet in the lower reaches of the SPHeLL. I thought those Gods Of Rash Predictions were laughing at me since a few months back I mention talismanic and Stokes in the same breath.
Both open play strikes reminded me of ‘vintage‘ Dutchmen. Bergkamp and Van Basten. Biram Kayal was better than both of them though and Paddy never finished what would have been his sixth ninety minutes in a row. We can rest assured that those who question his fitness will use this as evidence.
Hibs? In deep brown stuff.
