What did we learn from watching in ‘Retro-vision’? The only ‘firm’ finding is that we face The Sheep – again – in a semi final and that David Begg greets our goals like a newsreader reading the obituary of a well loved celebrity. To the thoughts of a shallow mind then…
1) How many times this season are we going to say: “This was the type of game we would have lost last year.” It was set up for a failing. Wednesday, night, midden of a park against a team out to mane, rape and kill. Forget the aesthetics of the performance. Focus on the result.
2) It’s being called “The Glenda Experiment”. The shock of seeing the Dutch Internationalist – unbelievably, he is one – lumbering around the Caley Stadium certainly put me off my stroke.
Problem is apart from giving away the penalty, putting us under intense pressure in the process, he strolled through the game. That sentence is the biggest oxymoron seen since a Lib Dem election promise.
So, a poll. partnership for Sunday?
3) Joe Ledley’s two goals gave him something to tweet about and the doubters something to chew over. On the other hand when he doesn’t score Kris Commons looks every inch a £300,000 signing from a struggling Championship club.
4) Terry Butcher must have thought that the “Tv Blackout” would mean that no-one saw the game. His rant afterwards reeked of self pity and delusion. His team of hammer throwers and hoofers weren’t at the races for long spells, which must have been much to his chagrin. I don’t care. He is a c*nt. A big smelly one.
5) Though the stream I was watching the game on was being beamed from 1973 the viewing figures never went below 67,000. Take that UEFA and surely someone at Celtic and the SFA took note of this. It’s the future.
