Pacific Quay Musings?


Recommended Posts

Sportsound was a fun listen last night. After the match Pat Bonnar, who remains someone it's impossible to hate, said something along the lines of 'Celtic enjoyed good possession' and was metaphorically set upon by Thomson, Gordon and McDonald. It was really funny. Stevie Thomson actually laughed out loud at the comment and Richard Gordon told him Celtic didn't touch the ball for the first 25 minutes other than to pick it out of the net. Even Scott McDonald was very critical of the performance and the tactics.

To be fair it's not like they could say anything else after a 3-0 trouncing by a side who apparently didn't play all that well. 

 

It simply underlined what some have been feeling for a while, this season Celtic are beatable. There's a lethargy and an arrogance to them and if we can only stay injury free and avoid the stupid defeats there's a championship to be won.

It would be very interesting to see how this Celtic team would cope with the pressure if Rangers was in close contention. I think it would be very different from coasting 20 points out in front with no pressure on them at all as they've done for much of the last 18 months.

I'm still expecting to hear from Rogers that Zenit only turn up when they play the big boys.

The mantra towards the end of the game was that Zenit are "a decent team but not a great team ".

They all got carried away by the manks beating a team at home who hadn't played for 2 months . 

You have to wonder what sort of former player, so called expert, or commentator who sees maybe 2 or 3 games a week would take a 1 - 0 home result as proof that they've been watching possible future cup finalists in action.

The manks won 1 - 0. Deservedly so. The Russians were happy with that result because they knew fine well that with a 45 minute practice session and a team talk they'd destroy the manks.

The manks got DESTROYED last night.

A half hit trundler and a shot that put the floodlights in danger was all they had to show in the highlights tonight on tv.

All the more galling at how we have missed opportunities to put them under pressure with silly defeats at home.  They clearly got the new manager bounce when Rodgers came in - but they are, mostly, the same dross that we beat in the SC semi-final a couple of years ago - and we have, IMHO, considerably improved since that time.

They totally were not fit under Dahlia and we were far fitter than them. Rogers got them fit and closing down quickly. Now teams have sussed it and closing them down quickly and they have no answer if it is done well. plus the have left their best striker on the sidelines for most of the season.

*Eagerly awaits 26th of Foot's take on Pacific Quay this weekend*

Firstly, I had two guests at Bar'72 on Saturday, and thus heard next to nothing of BBC Scotland's coverage. I have a question to any Gersnetter that did tune in, did Richard Gordon interview Craig Levein post-match? As stated at the top of this thread, BBC Radio Scotland improved their coverage of games at Ibrox by telephoning the opposition managers for post match reaction. We heard the triumphalism in the voices of Tommy Wright, Martin Canning, and Neil Lennon. Owen Coyle utilised the opportunity to spout grievance. We did not hear Derek McInnes, was he contacted? If Levein was NOT interviewed, then there appears to be a correlation between opposition defeat and lack of interest at PQ. Did Craig trap?

 

Secondly, I heard most of yesterday's coverage of events at the Hill'o'Dung. I heard Richard Gordon state twice, "we will have full live coverage of all four Scottish Cup quarter-finals next weekend, from Saturday's lunchtime until Sunday afternoon". Now, full live coverage suggests they intend to provide commentary from Ibrox? He said it twice, half-an-hour apart.

 

Oh, and Dundee United are now forth in the Championship, and still no sign of Jum Spence. Finally, the PQ line on Neil Lennon appears to be, "Neil is a passionate man". Sportscene failed to show Lennon getting most profane in the face of referee, Kevin Clancy. Further, Chick Young claimed Lennon sarcastically clapped his hands in the face of the referee too, not shown either. I heard Richard Gordon, Pat Bonner, Chris McLaughlin, and Stephen Thomson all use the line, 'Neil is a passionate guy'. Tell that to the two women he has threatened in well documented cases.
