“I once convinced a Scotland team that they were good enough to beat Brazil” mumbled Paw Broon before yesterday’s match up ( No-one thought to remind him that we got our ar$es felt in that game?). It was a headline writers dream. A small play on words saw Broon telling his players that Celtic weren’t Brazil.
We only had to be closer to the Blue Brazil to comfortably beat a side that Broon has taken the comedy factor out off. Think of Rab C Nesbitt in it’s heyday compared to it’s must recent reincarnation. It was a painful, unenjoyable and disappointing as in Diamond and the pony-tailed Vujadinovic they have plenty comic hope.
Us? Was asked sometime ago what type of team and style Lennon would implement on us. Yesterday, was my description. Dogged, determined and damn pleasing. We have been more artistic in our previous. There have been times when it looked like Lennon was working from the files that Mowbray had left in the managers filing cabinet.
While I love those games – it’s The Celtic Way innit? – seeing us being organised, having a great workrate and looking like we give a monkeys shows more sign of progress. The reason? We have been a rudderless mess for years. That had to change. We are no Brazil but who wants to those samba dancing charlatans? Would Charlie Mulgrew get into their team?
Kayal is becoming a find. Though I wonder just who long it will be before someone complains about his prayer routine before the game kicks off. Open and public showing of religious beliefs is banned in this god foresaken backwater is it not?
McGinn seems to becoming Average Joe the more you see off him and is there a definite answer to the Ledley or Broon question yet?
Final word before youse get the only ‘highlight’ to be found and vote for your MOTM. Lizzy, stop your rolling around. It’s not cricket, son.
