It is never easy,,
My apologies for yesterday’s update not arriving as it went to the ethernet never to be seen again instead of Timternet where you could have simply enjoyed my recollections of a wonderful city.
Today,I was planning my recollections of a wonderful performance,and one which only added to what has been a terrific trip. It would have soured things more than a little if the team hadn’t come close to the passion of the fans,and they did us proud by not only coming back from the loss of an early goal but then by pulling ahead.
I applauded the opener because it was a free header by the player it was aimed at. Terrific corner,terrific header. How everyone missed the block on Welsh which stopped Welsh attacking the situation is,well,you tell me.
I was even more puzzled at the penalty that we got. Honestly,none of us saw any incident as we were at the far end,so ball watching. Still not seen it,as the screens at Bay Arena are a tad selective on replays and do not show live action at all. Who cares,1-1 gives us that hope.
And 2-1 makes us think we can scale Everest!
Yep,a quick interchange from the right saw Jota-who should trademark “SIGNHIM” ASAP-put us in front.
Well,I never watch Celtic believing it is a waste of time. Our club is built on bigger fairytales than this! But I’m a cynical old bugger anaw. And if there’s fannying about to be done,we will always find a way. Joe Hart made some unbelievable stops to keep it going,then for some reason,AP made the same mistake that I and many others called wrong a few weeks ago.
Took off the entire front three. Replaced with one out of form player,another who is trying to live up to his wunderkind status,and a third who can’t get things right for getting wrong,no matter how he tries.
So,again,our midfield have nowhere to go because the ball keeps coming back. Which means that they can’t defend the defence. So the inevitable happens.
An equaliser in the last ten minutes-which was a cracker! There is much I could say about their winner,but I won’t.
It put a dampener on the night. But many of us have been to games where we never put a toe in. Last night we had 90% of bloody hell,can we do this? Sure,it disappoints the way it turned out. It hurts a lot more when the defeat is from the first minute,and not the last. The majority of the fans-the VAST majority!-were much loved and welcomed. The idiots with flares,less so.
But a magnificent conurbation,a magnificent people,and a bliddy fantastic time. Just a tad disappointed with the substitutions.
