Quantcast

The future is Scott Bain’s, if he can grasp it

842

It’s just another story of a player sitting in the stands at Dundee before moving to the bench at Hibs and then a four year contract at Celtic.  All in less than four months.  Scott Bain is 26 years old and were it not for a personal issue with Neil McCann would still be at Dens Park.

Instead, he will see out his 20s as a Celtic goalkeeper.  He is 11 years younger than Dorus de Vries (37) and 9 younger than Craig Gordon (35).  He caught Brendan Rodgers eye and is now a development project for the manager.  The future is his, if he can grasp it.

Congratulations on your new contract, Scott.

    Looks like a safe pair of hands, top shot stoper and good concentration/no drama. Only concern Hearts disallowed goal last week when he didnt command the area but he was probably blocked.

     

     

    All in all very impressed with him. Don’t need to be 6ft 4 to be a quality goalkeeper.

    I see Brendan’s comments re firemen have now been twisted into ‘Killie are just a bunch of firemen’ , in order to get a negative reaction (and headline) from Steve Clarke……………sssssiiiiiiiiiighhh.

    I dont think he should have said it. To be honest if it meant avoiding a humiliating 7 goal (going on more) pumping away to PSG etc then maybe he should doing the same for those games. We can’t go toe to toe with these teams and Killie can’t go toe to toe with us playing expansive football. So be pragmatic and play to your strengths.

  5. The ‘Firemen’ comment is a strange one, is Brendan admitting that the team he set out on Wed would also have struggled to break down a team of Firemen? Weird.

  6. glendalystonsils on

    I took the ‘firemen’ comment to mean 11 robust guys ,commited to not letting us past.

     

    I totally agree with Clarke’s right to do so, and that we would have been better served being more defensive against PSG.

     

    Brendan usually chooses his words carefully but perhaps there was too much ambiguity in this one.

  7. Sily comments this past few days – rival clubs are entitled to set up their teams and alter their pitches as they see fit. Up to him to adapt and find a way to overcome such ‘difficulties’. A ‘Plan B’ would help.

    Storm in a teacup anyway – but yeah, we didnt get any extra plaudits for trying to press PSG high up the pitch and leaving them acres of space – most casual observers just saw the result which reflected badly on us, our league and the Champions League itself that night.

     

     

    But it didnt have to be that way. This season, PSG average 3 goals per game domestically in France, playing against lots of teams inferior to us. Yet they put 12 past us in 2 games.

     

     

    Its the one area Rodgers needs to reconsider if and when we face a top drawer side again.

  9. if we’d been up against 11 firemen we would have expected them to park the Appliance.

     

    Playing against 11 professional footballers, in a game where nothing was at stake, we might have expected them to act like professional footballers, and play some football, make an effort to entertain those who paid their hard-earned cash to at least make an effort to give the fans something for their money. Apparently, it’s more important not to lose now. And the way the Killie players celebrated in front of their fans at the end reminded me of another bunch of imposters who celebrated a similar result……

    Defending is an art too you know ;)

  11. Traditionalist88,

     

    Yes, I agree, but for me, the aim of the game is to win, not just to avoid defeat.

     

    Clarke has been widely lauded for turning around the fortunes of Kilmarnock this season. It wouldn’t have hurt his reputation one bit to have sent his team out with a different attitude.

     

    Instead, we’re talking about the sort of game which will drive fans away from the game.

     

    And yes, i get that your post was probably a bit tongue in cheek….?

  12. Hi Paul67,

     

    I sent you an email the other day.

     

    Maybe caught up in spam?

    I know, but we were missing some key players, and from Clarkes point of view, he set out to keep it tight early on….it was working, so he’d have been reluctant to change it.

     

     

    Just one of those nights – but yes, too many draws at home this season, and up to us to find that bit of invention to break down defensive minded teams. Its not a new phenomenon,

  14. There’s obviously a disturbance in the space time continuum when Paul 67 can only get a second place podium ????????

     

     

    Yeah I’m sure firemen up and down the country will be outside Celtic Park as we Blog wielding pitchforks and torches and baying for Brendan’s blood. What say you Bada?

     

    Meanwhile in an adjacent country where the press are not licking the @rse of one team…………

    No parking the bus then — the tactics that achieved the objective — ” a steel curtain ” .

     

     

    Dukla moaned their faces off – Celtic said -_”sour grapes ”

    Pog- it was a strange comment from Brendan, probably as frustrated as we were watching it HH

    A great track from our centenary year in 1988 was ‘All I Want for Christmas is the Dukla Prague Away Strip’ by Half Man Half Biscuit. Great live band from Merseyside.

    Entertainment or result…which is more important? I know it’s super-duper when you combine both but…I think in Killie and Steve Clarke’s case they were quite right to go for a result…two draws and a victory against us is not bad going for them and that, I’m sure, makes their fans happy…even happier than being entertained…I would have preferred we set up in a similar fashion for our European games, certainly the in away games. I agree with Traditionalist88 – defending is a great skill. It’s all very well having a ‘footballing’ philosophy, however, sometimes needs must and a more pragmatic approach is required rather than a cavalier ‘toe to toe’ attitude…So, well done to Steve Clarke. I do like the guy…

    BSR- A few of the older stations still have poles, a lot of recent builds are only ground level.

    Brilliant track. Thanks. The late great John Peel was a big Half Man Half Biscuit fan. I loved their humour. Magic

    Hearts and Kilmarnock have every right to employ their anti-football tactics, just the same as Brendan and everyone else has the right to point out that it does little to entertain the paying public.
