Ronny will value having game on Friday night

816

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.

  1. The Battered Bunnet on

    The Deila ‘lecture’ is pretty ordinary by typical standards, the kind of thing one might expect to hear given at a run of the mill management conference.

     

     

    It’s a measure of the Scottish football mentality that we find it extraordinary – a football manager discussing values, learning styles, talent development, the importance of humility, amongst other matters.

     

     

    Moreover, that he was both a student and a Practitioner of the methods he discussed. This wasn’t a glib chat, or a pick n mix of assorted methods. He described a system built from first principles up. (Whether the system is any good will be tested over the lo term).

     

     

    There are few Scottish Football people who would be able to carry that off. WGS would, and indeed, he has his own a highly developed approach. The guy thinks about the Game at many levels.

     

     

    MON could, but I think he’d be disinclined, it’s not his ‘thing’, and anyway, he’s not a Scot.

     

     

    Ferguson could and does. An impressive guy at many levels. Moyes? Probably.

     

     

    After that? Struggling.

     

     

    In any other sphere of management the discussion was common or garden. In the context of Scottish Football, it’s striking that it’s lesser spotted.

    It would be interesting to read Kojo’s thoughts/opinion of the Ronny Deila lecture.

  3. I liked Ronnies lecture.

     

    I have heard many over the years.

     

     

    I have witnessed many delivered to a very high standard by theorists.

     

    People who when placed in the field ,then failed miserably.

     

     

    Celtic should have won the SPFL weeks ago.

     

    We have a massive financial advantage over our league opponents.

     

     

    He failed miserably in Europe.

     

    Whilst Lenny never brought a treble ,he punched way above his weight in Europe in hi second season.

     

     

    I will not be won over by Deila until I see how we perform in Europe.

     

     

    Deila has not won one match where we were not favourites.

    Nice one, time we had a bit of negativity this AM,

     

    Keep up the good work :)

     

     

    Thanks for the summary – somehow I must have just passed by the comment!

    I hope you weren’t having a nasty, sideways dig at a certain gardener of this parish? Teehee

    I beg to differ. That’s not an ordinary gift Ronny has, that’s a tallent, not to many can do that, it’s the run of the mill lecture, well not in my opinion, you get people who do that stuff for a living, and they get so wrapped up in them selves they tend to lose there audience, I read every word he was saying and he captured my attention and I found it both interesting and helpful insight to the man that many of us do not know, and it turned a lot of heads, to be saying ordinary, is not doing the man justice, and remember this is before he was a Celtic employee and so he wasent on stage to impress us, but he did, well in my opinion he did.

    Harsh though true in a Celtic context.

     

     

    Clearly not so in the majority of his management career. His success can be measured by the value of his players as well as match results.

    It was Lenny’s third season we punched well above our weight in Europe. In his first season we were out of two competitions by end of August, in his second we got to EL group stage because Sion were kicked out.

  11. BGX being presumptious in winning the league means you are behaving like a hun?

     

     

    Ok then.

     

     

    So is Paul a hun when he said during Ronnys poor run we would win the league?

     

     

    Is your disgust at not being able to beat Inverness presumptious and disrespectful? A divine right to win? Does that make you a Hun?

     

     

    You are as ever all over the place. We all know your agenda BGX.

    I too thought it was very run of the mill but in the context of – I ‘m the gaffer / get ******* tore in or else Scottish fitba it is paradigm shifting.

    Hail Hail

  20. The reason we haven’t won the league already is the form and consistency of Aberdeen. In the last three seasons the runners up have finished with 73, 63 & 70 points. Aberdeen have 74 points with 4 games to go.

    Aberdeen have taken no points at all from us this season from nine available. Yet are only eight points behind us in the table.

     

     

    74 from 93 against other teams,while we have taken 73.

     

     

    Aberdeen are incapable of raising their game against us to the extent that other teams can,yet other teams are generally incapable of raising their game against Aberdeen as much as they do against us?

     

     

    Dunno,but a strange disparity nonetheless.

    Bobby,

     

     

    I think they had two chances to take points from us.

     

     

    One game we had just returned from a slog in Milan and the other was when we were down to ten and level on goals.

     

     

    They blew both chances.

     

     

    Most of the times we have dropped points this season have been either immediately before or after euro ties.

     

     

    Ehberdeen were dumped out of Europe at the start of August. Out the Scottish cup by December and out league cup by end of January.

     

     

    We were a honking decision away from playing in a final for an elusive treble.
