Riga 0 – 1 Celtic
Last night was like having needles stuck through my eyes. Not only did-as I expected-we go with one up front,he also messed about at the back. I’m not sure that Eddie was fit enough for last night,if he was then that is a bigger problem,because he barely broke into a trot,and we had a player on the bench in The Yeti who is on fire and champing at the bit.
Klimala too would have been a better option than an either injured or disinterested Eddie. I hope it’s the former,because on the 17th,I sure don’t want a disinterested multi-million pound striker. One of them in Glasgow is enough for me,thank you,and I’d rather neither was anywhere near us.
But after last night,am I right to wonder about a guy who has never previously let us down? Hmmm…
With three at the back,only one is a central defender,and he has been here for five minutes,and the lack of understanding showed. But with five in the middle-all of whom have been here for four years minimum-it showed too that familiarity can breed contempt. Every single one of them seemed intent on either making themselves or the recipients of a pass look bad. Or not covering their area,so that the poor sap nearest to the few breaks by Riga looked like he was the fall guy for it.
Yes,it was that bad.
I don’t want to see a performance like that again,and I don’t want to see a line-up like that again either-even if I did say before the game that any win will do. That was a howler.
That the man of the match was a substitute says it all. Step forward,wee Frimpers. He’s probably still on a fraction of the wage of our highly paid primadonnas,and has yet to let us down after a mere year in the first team.
I wish I could clone him.
Above article by BMCUWP,with apologies that it isn’t a proper match report. The match report would have been much less pleasant.
To the game itself,oh dear.
