The Road Well Travelled.
Well,it’s been a long phoney war,but it seems to be kicking into gear. A bit. The huns have done what they’ve always done,which is go for broke in the hope of getting it right with two signings. Who between them cost somewhere between six bob and nine million. Strikers anaw,68 goals in nine seasons isn’t to be sneezed at.
I think it would be another dwarf commenting on that,to be fair. And Dopey might have a word or two to say too.
Meantime,we are allegedly linked with Stephen Fletcher-who I didn’t want even in the Willo Flood window!-and Lenny adds credence with a statement on the subject. Personally,I think he’s winding them up,leading them up a dark alley. The one I would like,who we seem to be interested in,is Sebastien Anderssen from Union Berlin.
A goal every 220 minutes and more assists than goals,regular now for Sweden. We have till Saturday to cough the release fee of €4m. Then the price goes up.
Meantime,some of us are a bunch of pessimistic basterts and are already wondering why we bought those I Wanna Be Edouard t-shirts. Others are worse,and telling us that the world will end unless we sign a left-sided centre back.
And then there’s me who says we need a 2020 version of the Lennon 2000.
So who is right?
The obvious answer is all of us and none of us,because there are so many games in a season that you can prove your point,or other people can tell you that you know eff all. That’s why we call each other friends,btw(!!!!)
But maybe a lifetime of experience,all of it hard earned,can advise us on the pitfalls,and on what to be wary of. Because,one thing you can say about Celtic after a lifetime of watching them,they never build on success.
The players have to earn it.
Aye,it’s all the more a pleasure,but should it be such hard work? It’s actually been quite hard work for about two thirds of our title run. The fans can see the deficiencies in certain areas,and so too can the management staff. They’re not blind to faults,they know the score.
So why is it that our manager,no matter who,no matter which season,can’t simply go in and say
“We both know you want me to be successful,Peter. It’s why you hired me. At the moment,that’s a left sided centre back who can cover as full back,a Mini-Me in defensive midfield and a serious proposition up front if you sell Eddy.”
And not be told,noted and sorted.
I’m sick to the back teeth of not knowing who will be playing for us next season,despite having a well-founded dread of who won’t. It’s not good enough,and no manager should have to suffer this year after year. And nor should the fans.
I’m not worried about the huns stopping The Ten. I’m more concerned about the powers that be throwing it away.
