Kris Boyd comments best thing to happen to Celtic

384

The thought was put to me this morning that Kris Boyd’s ill-considered comments on the Celtic squad – that they are divided – could be the best thing that happened to the team this season.  Football clubs and footballers perform best with a ‘them’ to work against.  We had this briefly under Ronny, when Aberdeen kept in touch for five months of the season, but since then we have pretty much had the run of the place.

Boyd is a professional footballer playing in the same league as Celtic.  When an opponent comments on you or your team, the words carry greater resonance than they otherwise would.  I doubt newspaper clippings are pinned to dressing room doors, but everyone at Lennoxtown will have reacted to what a Kilmarnock player has said about them.

Then we had the “Aston Villa make their move” for Brendan Rodgers tat.  Brendan will leave Celtic eventually, but the entire planet knows it will not be for a team 15th placed in the Championship.  It is no indication of his or Celtic’s worth and insulting to suggest otherwise.

Footballers and managers are best with a point to prove.  Celtic are capable of winning every domestic game between now and the winter break.  Whatever has gone on at Lennoxtown this season, recent comments have given the squad plenty of motivation.

    The stream I am watching replayed it at least a dozen times, they were both at fault but Robertson more so imo, I know KT has played at CB a few times but it’s not his natural position, so that mitigates him as far as I am concerened.

    Stephen O’Donnell looks very limited at this level.

    Amazing what happens when you come out of the compact shape at Kilmarnock. Brutally exposed.

  5. Sweden v Russia on tv here in US.

     

    Noticeable that the Russians are trying to play out from the back but do not really know how to move it forward.

     

    Results in a few sideways/backwards passes then a big punt.

     

    They look more positive when winning possession in midfield and quickly attacking?

     

    To many teams trying to play style of football they do not have personnel or intelligence for.

    You know why. You might not agree but you know.

  7. Correct me if I am wrong.. Naismith in fiorm Griffiths out of form. James Forres quite frankly would be better at home a serving those that appreciate him. And resting. It’s becoming more obvious every day

    No, I don’t which is why I asked. I could imagine and be wildly wrong.

     

     

    Why not state your view ?

    Listening to Scotland match on radio. Sounds grim. Israel should be 5-1 up they just said.

     

    EBT Dodds talks absolute nonsense.

     

    KT og

  10. Ball whipped in, gets across his marker and flicks it into the corner, keeper absolutely no chance.

  11. Can we get relegated from this group ! Maybe San Marino, The Pharoes and Sanibel Island are more our level.

  12. KT will now face extended criticism from mssm as they try to undermine and devalue him.

     

    He should have chosen to represent anyone but Scotland.

     

    It’s a perfect outcome for mssm and SFA as they deflect from the the appointment of a serial failure as a coach who could not organize a piss up in a brewery.

    …………………..

     

     

    The buck stops with the manager. Two more defeats and he’s a goner.

  14. Meanwhile, Iceland, with the same population as Dundee, have 8 shots on target after an hour and are leading the World Champions 2-0 in France.
