I watched Scotland play a more accomplished Wales last night. No one in blue played particularly well but when Charlie Mulgrew prepared to take a corner from the right in first half stoppage time we knew Wales were in danger.
The pace, low trajectory and movement Charlie gets on the ball negates the natural advantage the defending team has. The goal had little to do with the young lad who got on the end of the cross, just as Celtic’s remarkable success from corners has little to do with their ability to attack the ball.
The Wee Oscar 4 Life team have asked me to pass on this message:
Wee Oscar 4 Life are delighted to be offering you the chance to win a fantastic and very unique auction prize.
We have been donated a very special bottle of 8 year old Bowmore, which has come straight from the cask. The Whisky is 59.4%, unlike a normal malt whisky which is cut to 40% proof.
The whisky was distilled on 13 March 2001, and bottled on 26 June 2009. It has been donated by a very kind CQNer. However, not content with already donating 3 bottles from his share of the cask to raise funds for Wee Oscar , we now have his prized possession:
Place you auction bids from 1pm to us @ firstname.lastname@example.org
Auction closes: 7pm tomorrow (Sunday) night
