Strange things happen – take Hearts beating Aberdeen last night for instance. This result wasn’t totally unexpected to be honest and once more another indicator of a title race full of twists.
For Celtic that means seizing yet another opportunity to widen the gap at the top the league. A win today at Fir Park would put Celtic 8 points ahead of Aberdeen but nothing is guaranteed.
Motherwell will be out in force today. Ronny Deila can expect no favours from Mark McGhee.
This could be bad day for Celtic, it could be a great day. Right now I wouldn’t bet any money on them though.
For every good result there’s a bad one. Good performances a have been few and far between.
If Celtic want to win this league they are going to have to win it themselves. Last nights result at Tynecastle was favourable for us but lets not throw away a good opportunity.
Today, Deila must pick his best team based on form and opponent. If that means dropping underperforming players then I have no problem with that.
We need calm, authoritative players, particularly in the middle of the park. Wholesale changes are risky at this stage of the season but no less risky than underperforming seasoned campaigners playing week in week out.
Here’s how I think we will line-up today:
Gordon, Lustig, Tierney, Boyata, Mulgrew, Brown, Bitton, Rogic, Mackay-Steven, Johansen, Griffiths
Here’s how I think we should line-up today:
Gordon, Lustig, Tierney, Boyata, Mulgrew, Bitton, Armstrong, Rogic, McGregor, Roberts, Griffiths.
There’s no way Deila will drop Brown though, even though he’s been awful recently. He’s not alone in below par performances though.
As long as we get the result today, I don’t care who is on the park. We just don’t want to blow this one.
Step it up Bhoys.
