Quantcast

Hayes, Burke and the exceptional Sinclair

278

Jonny Hayes and Oliver Burke are rightly receiving praise following the drubbing of St Johnstone yesterday, deservedly so.  I have a latent worry that Callum McGreogr will be moved to left back against Valencia on Thursday, as he was at Ibrox in December, but Jonny’s solid performance will hopefully see Brendan Rodgers maintain faith in him for our Europa League tie.

Burke is a handful to play against.  Still only 21, he has the speed and power to stretch a defence, which will occupy the thoughts of Valencia scouts as they plan for Thursday.    They will not want to leave space for him to exploit.

It says much the form of Scott Sinclair that his hat-trick was one of the less noteworthy aspects of the game.  10 goals in 9 games since Christmas is exceptional.  He has the experience and engine to find space.  Watch his run for the opening goal against St Johnstone.  When Oliver Burke crossed the ball, Scott was 20 yards from goal and not on any defender’s radar, but he made up 18 yards to get on the end of the cross.

All three players need confidence to be at their best.  If we want to come through a difficult February in good shape, helping them maintain their confidence will help.

    I’m going to Jandia the week after you.

     

    I’m sure there is a Bar along from the Faro Hotel on the front at Jandia.

     

    You have to go up a small flight of stairs, but you should see it from the front por cierto.

    The first Cup Final I can remember attending was the Jock Stein Dunfermline one, which went to a replay and Dennis Connachan (?) who had the game of his life to beat us.

    It was Eddie Connachan in 1961 for Dunfermline. Dennis Connaghan later played for us

     

     

    This was my first game as well. My second game was the replay :((

     

    First Game, just me and my Dad, Enclosure in front of the main stand at the Celtic End. Replay North Stand with my Dad and 2 older sisters por cierto.

  4. The Sunderland Till I Die is an excellent documentary. I’ve also watched all those American Football ones as well. There is a couple of series about up and coming high school QB’s trying to make their way to college football, worth a watch too, por cierto

  5. The first Final I attended when we won was the 65 Final again against Dunfermline. I still think that is the best feeling I ever experienced as a Celtic supporter (and that includes Lisbon and Seville).
