I haven’t checked my facts here, so I could be wrong, but I reckon the last time we scored seven goals (against St Mirren) we lost the very next game (against the same opposition). If we can deduce anything from this two point observation it is that teams rebounding from an embarrassing defeat are more dangerous than teams on the crest of a great result.
Celtic will have been flowing in training this week whereas Motherwell will have re-examined every aspect of their club, team and tactics after their cup exit to Albion Rovers. If we produce a similar performance and result to the one we achieved at Tynecastle last week it will be an outstanding achievement.
Would like to see Biton and Mulgrew play in similar central roles tonight.
Many thanks to those who bid on the charity auction for lunch at Cinc Sentis in Barcelona. Highest bid is currently £82, if you’re going out next week, treat yourself………
“The question though is why the near obsession for the club’s history?
I don’t think there is a need for me to repeat the already well-trodden road of our club’s history and culture. In my opinion, I feel that it centres on the roots of the club……. that the club was formed to serve a community but grew to be far much more than that. It’s not about a business, a result, customers or a tournament. We view it as people with the supporters at its heart, something that is being lost at most other large clubs.”
