Mike's Moan: Bring On The Celtic
Updated Friday, 26th October 2007
We enjoyed another cracking game at Fir Park last Saturday with two sides determined to play good football and go forward. Again we got the better of the Hibees, as our attacking play tore their poor defence to shreds.
I think the defeat must be a much needed reality check for a lot of Hibs supporters, as although they play nice football and have some good players, they are no better than many of the teams in the SPL.
Though we played well on Saturday, we did not reach the heights of our performance at Easter Road. The front three worked well again, although nothing came off for Porter and Clarkie had another off day in front of goal. McCormack was superb, full of pace and movement, and scored two belting goals. I can only see him getting better and better as the season goes on, so I have my fingers crossed Mr McGhee gets him signed up as soon as possible.
Next up we visit the green side of
Celtic have shown that they are vulnerable and they are conceding a lot of goals. Both full back positions are weaknesses for the Bhoys, so if we can get our front three to work in tandem and give us width we certainly have nothing to fear at Parkhead.
Of course Skippy will score his obligatory goal against us (I have been surprised Kerr hasn't fluked one in against us yet) but we have the capability to get a few goals in every game. We need to take our chances (easier said than done) and need our defence to be strong, but we definitely have a chance.
Lets go out and attack, get in Celtic's faces, and show that we are a match for anyone.
'Mon the 'WELL!!!
