Back-to-back away games are statistically more likely to result in points being dropped than any other games (especially if one is a European game), so the probability of Aberdeen dropping points in Inverness last night was high. Their second night-game in the same week, on Friday at Firhill, will also be a genuine challenge. I can’t find enough occurrences of a team having two away games in the same midweek to draw any statistical inference but I’m glad it’s Aberdeen’s lot, not Celtic’s.
That result felt profound. Celtic can use the opportunity of a quiet week to prep for the visit of Inverness. A Highland double would go a long way towards the title.
On the “Atlantic League” story, little detail has been reported on what’s happened (ignore what has been reported) and where it’s heading. The project is not at a mature stage yet, it’s not an Atlantic League, it’s not a collaboration of clubs from small nations, and no lower league clubs, anywhere, have been involved. Apart from that, the story’s fine.
Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has kicked the sleeping dog. We’ll see where he barks.
Time is running out for you to register for the Celtic Park Zip Slide, in aid of the Foundation, which takes place next month. I did it last year and it was genuinely exhilarating. Go here and register.
