Trust The Ones You Love?
That was maybe a mixed bag on Sunday. It is always a pleasure to take five off anyone,maybe sometimes more of a pleasure when it is that mob.
Apart from the huns or Hearts,of course. And we’ve done that a few times.
Reminds me,about 35 years ago,I went over to Edinburgh to meet SOLKITTS and some Hearts-supporting friends,good weekend planned. They had a decent team at the time,and were well confident.
So was I. A pint a goal for the winning margin,I declared. Just to shut them up. Fuxake,five of them took me up on it!
Worse-my best mate disnae bet!
So,with two minutes to go,we are five up,trashing them. I’m on thirty pints here. Willie Johston scored in the last minute and knocked it back to a mere 25. Still way beyond me,even in my twenties.
Sunday,aye,maybe a 5-0 was a good bet. My Dad and a couple of others had it on Superbru. I’m sure it got hammered online too. In fact,we could have taken double figures off them,truth be told.
But did we actually play well? Did we perform to our best? Did we look like a team to be feared-despite the scoreline?
I’m not sure that we did,which was maybe what MAHE was getting at yesterday. I was impressed by the goals,especially the first two,but not by the overall play.
In fact,the overall play left me distinctly unimpressed.
Last season was a pleasure. An unexpected delight. We all know that,but we cannot take our eye off the ball. Yes,it is true that we have actually won the league at Rugby Park. But not on the third day of the season,we haven’t.
Eyes down,concentrate. Ange will be focused-and so too does the squad need to be. We played well on Sunday,does a 5-0 reflect that?
I don’t think we did,in fairness,and that 5-0 flattered us. We won’t get away with it every week,but Ange will know that.
Bloody hell,imagine going into work after giving the opponents a 5-0 doing on-haha,I was gonna say their home turf,there-and getting told by your boss that he was distinctly unimpressed.
But I think Ange will have been just that. I know that I was,even if the goals were stunning. The pass from GT,the strike from Jota,the overheads.
Bloody hell,how much does G-Mak want a goal,how much does he need to do to get a place?
But can we drop Kyogo?
Look,I’ve been watching our team since the 60s. Back then,I have seen us progress from the days of a mix of Bobby Lennox,Willie Wallace,John Hughes and Stevie Chalmers.
I’ve seen us with Harry Hood,Lou Macari and Kenny Dalglish.
Charlie Nick and George McCluskey.
Brian McClair and Judas,and the three amigos.
Best ever,maybe,was Henrik and The Evil Genius.
But life doesn’t stop. It moves on. And it will move on after Sunday too.
I think there’s a song about it. It don’t impress me much.
