Sky Sports Scotland have released their “team of the month” for the SPFL.
And in the timeframe which started with a rampaging Celtic moving top after doing the Ibrox club and which ended with us even further ahead on points they have four Ibrox players in the squad to Celtic’s two.
And our two are Jota and Greg Taylor.
Stevie Wonder is obviously doubling as both an Ibrox scout and one of the guys on the WhoScored.com rating team … they, after all, are responsible for this ludicrous team.
I half expected, when checking the eleven properly, to find Aaron Ramsey in it.
One of the Ibrox players who makes it – ahead of our midfielders – is Lundstram.
That tells you everything you need to know.
I mean honest to God, did Kris Boyd pick that himself or was he just pissing himself laughing in the background as somebody else did using his ratings system?
I know stuff like this doesn’t matter.
Christ, I’ve written lengthy articles on how much it doesn’t matter, articles about how they cling to this stuff even when it’s utterly without meaning or merit, but you see this and it still makes your teeth itch.
It still makes you wonder if we’re all on different planets.
Celtic’s early month performances, alone, invalidate that ridiculous line-up. Based on just the first two league games – against the Ibrox club and Motherwell – it is nuts not to have Hatate in that eleven.
And no Abada but Alan Forrest instead?
No Giakoumakis, who was magnificent against the other lot at Parkhead and wrapped it up with a hat-trick? Callum Hendry of St Johnstone, for God’s sake?
Is that supposed to be funny?
And of course, El Ned was “player of the month.” Of course. Why not give his manager the award as well, whilst they are at it? All those dropped points, I guess they don’t matter much.
