Celtic 5 v 0 St Mirren

Morning troops.

Wasn’t there on Saturday so this is based on the highlights from Sportscene.

Another step closer to title win number 9 in a row. A comfortable day on Saturday, a 5-0 win that could and should have been more.

The first goal is a classic Griffiths goal, playing on the shoulder of the last defender and it’s a wonderful cross from Edouard, perfect start.

The 2nd goal is not a classic griffiths goal, not many do we see him beat 2 players then play a give and go, which was sublime in itself and then it’s a lovely wee dinked finish, although the keeper was unlucky not to save it. That was a crucial goal right before half time, kills the game off and allows the players to come out 2nd half and play with a freedom, if we weren’t already.

3rd goal is actually good play from Griffiths again, he was involved in 4 of the 5 goals which tells you about how well he played, good first time ball into Eddy and it’s a lovely turn and finish. That said, St Mirren defending is woeful.

4th goal was a bit of a Griffiths throwback, one touch out his feet, no back lift and wallop, into the bottom corner, hat trick for him. That’s him now on 11 goals for the season, he also has 4 assists so 15 goals he’s been directly involved in and for someone who’s season didn’t really start until the end of January, that’s some going.

5th goal was pleasing to see as it was another pen taken well and El Hammed was heavily involved in winning it, he was also running at flooking full pelt to get there which is pleasing given his recent injury troubles.

Obviously with Rangers winning yesterday the gap is now down to 13 points, but the GD is now at 25 clear, incredible and another point so Sunday is now a chance to go 16 clear and give us a chance at winning the title at Hibs in 3 weeks time which given the way sporting events are going across Europe, would be most welcome.

We need to go with the 2 up top on Sunday, play at a high tempo and take the game to Rangers.

I’d go with this:

Forster

El Hammed
Julien
Biton

Frimpong
Brown
McGregor
Ntcham (if fit)
Taylor

Eddy
Griffiths

If Forrest starts I might turn the tele aff, can’t deal with the thought of him playing there.

Anyway, 5 wins required as it stands but hopefully after Sunday it will only be 2 or 3 wins

It would appear the players are off to Cheltenham again, I’d have thought with the current situation for this virus they’d have been told no this time round? Anyway, apparently a few left last night and will be back up Tuesday night to train on Wednesday so 3 days off.

Nothing specific, just a growing realisation of the impact it can have on those with weak immune systems

Went to a school with historical middle class pretensions so curling was still a 'sport' option and I did that last year of school instead of freezing my bits off on a rugby pitch. And, as you say, they had a bar!

The teacher that 'supervised' couldn't give a fook and we all fooked off early. Easy pact to make. He was a smart cookie - runner up on R4 Brain of Britain one year - pre-Mastermind, of course He was also gay as the day is long but he just just in the bar for a bit then disappear that gave us our cue.

It was all just a laugh. The ice was always ripped up to fck by skaters so the stones went everywhere. One day though the machine had been out polishing for a competition that night. Cants were falling all over the place without any imperfections to grip. Good times.
