Yesterday I caught myself moaning about potentially winning the league without playing a game (epitome of first world problems). How quickly we forget the pain of the 90s. Let’s bring the title home as soon as possible, no matter where we are or what we’re doing. There could be people doing the Ronny Roar in shopping streets across Scotland on Saturday.
The one place Ronny will not be doing the Ronny Roar is out shopping, though. This time of year managers’ weekends are fully booked: one day for the game, one day scouting at another game. With a game on the Friday night Ronny will be able to take in games on Saturday and Sunday. Scouting opportunities before the end of the season are limited, so he’ll value the extra day.
A year ago Hibs asked to allow their season ticket holders into a play-off game for free – there’s your rule. The opportunity to deny another club the same has gone. Faux indignation about not even asking permission doesn’t register with me.
Club sponsor Magners have offered us a pair of premium tickets to the Jock Stein Stand for Friday’s game. All you need to do to win is send me an email with the name of the team we play in the SUBJECT line of your email. Competition closes at 9pm tonight (Wednesday), so not a lot of time.
If you would like to do something enormously constructive while entering the competition, you could always donate £1 (or more if you like) to our Mary’s Meals school kitchen appeal, which you can do right here. Many thanks.
