Yesterday was a bad day. I had my face all shaped for roast lamb from Asda,half price. It was shut. The pub I planned to watch the game in didn’t have it on,despite advertising it on their flyers. Nor did the other one,where I’d watched the League Cup Final earlier in the season.
So I decided to watch it on my phone. Good plan,slightly undone by me forgetting to charge it last night. It conked out just after CCV hit the bar. So did our day,it seems.
I really dont want to hammer our players this morning for yesterday,not when they have given us so much this season. But a display like that,in a semi final against our biggest rivals? Bugger,indeed.
Our first half performance was utterly dreadful,and none of our front men looked even remotely like scoring. It wasn’t for the lack of effort from them,nor of imagination from the mids. It was truly one of those days,and we’ve all seen plenty like that in the past. Selective refereeing from upside doon heid didn’t help much either.
But in the second half,though hardly showing visible signs of improvement,up popped a most unlikely hero. Greg Taylor it was who scored the opener after an hour or so,and breathe.
CCV had a great chance to finish them off about ten minutes later,but slammed his shot against the bar. Then my phone shut down. Frankly that summed up the day. My last chance at a look in,and the same for Celtic.
We now have to concentrate on our one remaining trophy,to win the league. To do that,we will have to play much better than we did yesterday. Nobody is at fault for yesterday,every player gave their all,but there were just too many players slightly off the pace. You cannot win against fired up opponents when that happens.
I said on Friday that players don’t trade off results,win that one and lose the other. But we lost that one nevertheless. We need to make sure that we win the rest of them.
