Bonfire of the nonentities

237

How would you prepare to face a Celtic team that had already beaten you four times and drawn once this season? In their wisdom, Newco have decided this is the week to add to the clear out of talent on and off the park. It was confirmed yesterday that finance director Kenny Barclay will leave at the end of the season.

Since chairman Douglas Park resigned a month ago, the blood on the brogues has extended to chief exec Stewart Robertson, sporting director Ross Wilson, and football admin director Andrew Dickson. While I understand new chairman John Bennett is a wealthy man, he does not have the wherewithal of Park, so a downsize is no surprise. This particular trend has a way to go yet.

Today The Sun report they are inviting offers for striker Antonio Colak, just days after Mick Beale confirmed he was far from upset at the prospect of losing Alfredo Morelos for free this summer. Ryan Kent and Allan McGregor are also confirmed for the departure lounge, while others out of contract are certain to follow.

Back in the day, when Celtic were on top, Rangers would prepare for us with a siege mentality – us against the world stuff. Now the disinterest is striking. Ange Postecoglou must make the most of whatever discord exists at Ibrox on Saturday. It will not be us against the world, but it will be us against the other 50,000 in attendance. Get the siege mentality working in our favour.

    Sorry to read your good lady has had a stroke.

     

     

     

    Wee prayer said for a full and speedy recovery.

    Than you for your kind words, I will pass them on to her.

     

     

    2 free tickets available to Wim Tribute night at the Armadillo tomorrow evening if any body wants them, e tickets so should be able to email them to you.

  2. Though neither O’Dea or McManus had to play out from their back in their time, they did have to cope with forwards pressing. You don’t have to teach the way you were instructed by coaches.

     

     

    Jock Stein never played clever inter-passing attacking football but he knew how to encourage and develop it.

     

     

    Nuno Espirito Santo and Raymond Goethals were goalies but they can and could coach outfield players.

  3. lullabies & Battle cries, Haven’t been on the site much lately missed the Post about your Good Lady having a Stroke,

     

    Sincerely hope she makes a full recovery, best of luck to ye both.
