We have a game. It seems like an age since we last took to the pitch. I wish we had a game in the midweek there and I’m glad we have games coming thick and fast now. Hopefully we can build momentum, this week has seen a lot of talk of tunnel vision, no pressure and in our own hands.
Early tomorrow afternoon this talk becomes action. I can’t wait.
No matter your take on last weeks draw we had a chance to ease the pressure, which we didn’t take. This will mean that people will be looking out lucky underpants and socks from now to the end of the season. Lennon went horses for courses last week and it weakened us.
I have said it on numerous occasion that I have questions about Commons overall contribution to the team but what is now clear is his value to this team. Him, Stokes and Hooper are a sort of Holy Trinity that seem to allow us to become a big toothed, savage, attacking beast and not that sleekit beastie that Lennon wanted us to be last week.
The injury to Ledley is a major blow. Lennon needs to forget his previous flirtations with the Moggaesq 4-2-4 and look more to a solid midfield 3 for all remaining games. Ki, Kayal and Broonie are first picks. We need to hope suspensions, injury or lose of form hit them.
This has become something of a grudge match. Their manager is a bit of a loudmouth no-mark that looks like Darth Vader with his mask off. He seems to have a hatred of all things Celtic, or lets be frank, all things Lennon. Dundee United used to be one of those clubs we just sort of didn’t bother about and loved scoring last minute goals against.
They now poke the dislike button, which is all down to him and that despicable oik David Goodwullie who models himself on wedding guests he see’s on My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding. Make no mistake they can take points from us. They only seem to lay down to R*ngers.
