Positive options available


Dundee sit in sixth place, two points ahead of Hibs with seven games to play until the league splits between sixth and seventh.  Our incentives tonight will be absolute, but Dundee’s players will be hugely financially motivated to finish top six, an outcome that will have a material impact on their earnings.

A late Mikey Johnston show put some gloss on the Celtic performance the last time the sides met on Boxing Day.  The evening was less comfortable than the 0-3 scoreline suggests.

A late winner sure changes your appetite for the next game.  The world turned when Adam Idah converted Alistair Johnston cross in the 94th minute at Fir Park on Sunday.  With Johnston, Greg Taylor and Cameron Carter-Vickers all having gametime under their belts after injury absences, we can expect our in-possession play to take on a more familiar look.

Yang will surely be rewarded for his outcome-determining contribution on Sunday with a starting place.  A similar argument could be made on the left wing, starting Luis Palma instead of Daizen Maeda.  Daizen is unlikely to see much space available to run into, and should be rested for the weekend’s trial.

That leaves the questions: Kyogo or Idah?  Tomoki Iwata or Paulo Bernardo?  I think we’ll start Japanese for both positions, with changes at Sunday in mind.  It’s good to have options you believe in.

  1. Horrible night,



    If you have the means and the physicality, then please make the effort.



    Ask not what your team can do for you.




  2. Watched STV News extensive coverage of Iain Packer sentencing, including several pictures of the killer taken over many years.



    This was followed by ITV’s networked news which led with the same story, but with one picture of the killer wearing a Rangers shirt. Obviously that particular picture was not among the several aired by STV.



    Now if it had been a Celtic shirt…?

    Tontime, One if the guys working on my house told me there’s still a bus that starts in Helensburgh Central then does a few more pick ups including Cardross. I stupidly assumed it would be hun central down here but almost everyone I’ve met so far have been Tim’s. A lot are ex Vale/Dumbarton/Glasgow including myself. Train service is excellent so I’ve not used the bus yet.



    *aye yer right and there are a lot of NOT just huns but Tories there tae which is why they left Dunbartonshire for Argyll, I used tae go tae t pats with more than a few of the jungle jims, the train service was always brilliant and if my memory serves me well went via Belgrove and no like the Balloch one tae brigton.

  4. Tom Mc – it did appear that there was an effort to avoid showing the rfc crest on the news article I watched
