Mike's Moan: Let's Hope Lady Luck Stays With Us
Updated Wednesday, 29th November 2006
Many would argue that we had a large slice of luck on Saturday with two penalty decisions going for us and one penalty shout going against the opposition. Let's hope this run of fortune continues for the ICT game as a good result there will see us back in the pack
The way we fought back from being a goal down was encouraging, although it could have been a different story had we not been awarded the penalty in first half injury time. The second penalty was again somewhat fortuitous and I'm not sure whether to give Las the benefit of the doubt or just admit he dived - either way I would take it every time.
Foran took both penalties coolly, although that was all he did in the entire match. As soon as I saw Ritchie stroll out at the beginning of the match I knew he was going to have an off day, but we'll forgive him if he scores twice each time. (I'm hoping it wasn't a hang-over)
Skippy then scored the marvellous 5000th goal in the SPL, a goal that will live long in the memory (at least for me). Surely a ‘Well fan must have won the goal competition - any ideas who??? (Lucky so and so – Ed)
But the goal was more important for the team as it was vital that we beat
Another major positive on Saturday was Callum Elliot, as the young Jambo striker actually did something for us. That is the first time I have seen him attack a ball since he came to
It was also great to see the Kaiser back from injury, its great to see one our best players returning to fitness and I think we all can agree that is first touch was certainly Beckenbauer-esk.
Predictions for Saturday's games:
St Mirren 1 Hearts 2
By my reckoning that puts us eighth on goals scored!!!
