Tomorrow is the one we’ve waited for.
This is the game which will probably decide whether this season has been a mere disaster or an all-out catastrophe, but in some ways that makes it a better occasion. We’ve lost the league and the League Cup … we badly need to finish with a trophy, and whether Gough and others want to believe it or not, it does set a marker for the next campaign.
Tomorrow will determine whether or not our players maintain a shred of their reputations as the greatest winners in Scottish football’s recent history, or if they will go down meekly, without a fight.
People have been asking all week how I think this will go, and I’ve been telling them all the same thing; I think we’ll win.
When they ask me why I tell them that there are a lot of factors, a lot of reasons, and that even one of them might be enough to get us above the level we need to find.
Taken together, I can’t see past us, and that’s me being honest.
I’m going to tell you now why I think tomorrow will be our day.
