St Johnstone 0 v 1 Celtic

Morning troops.

Another domestic cup win, that’s now 34 on the bounce, if we make it 36 then it’s a 4th treble in a row, quite incredible.

Thought it was a classic cup tie yesterday, pitch was a shocker so I’m not going to criticise anyone for misplaced passes or anything like that yesterday, not a game for easy on the eye football.

We still managed to create 5 or 6 really good chances in the game though but Forster was also worked a lot more than he should have been. The chance in the 2nd half where Eddy hits the post then Julien’s chance after it goes wide, I mean, how the fluck did that not go in?

In the end the goal comes which was actually a cross but Julien does well anyway as it stops the keeper from having an easy save. After that we seen the game out pretty comfortably.

Few moments of note:

Tackle on Forrest a flooking shocker.
Hayes with a beast of a tackle on MOH
Greg Taylor looked like a junior player.
If we’re going to play 3-5-2 and attack for the majority down the wing then Boli has to play before Taylor.
Good to see El Hammed on the bench, imagine he won’t be risked on the Astro on Wednesday so he might play for the reserves today/tomorrow in prep for Saturday.

It would appear Jozo and Elyounoussi are both out for a week or two so both major doubts for Ibrox I’d imagine.

Anyway, another semi final and after the pleasing result at Tynecastle on Saturday, we should be looking to secure another treble

Has someone left ?

Or have they just thought about it over the past 48hours but wanted everyone to know that they were thinking of it ...so everyone could ask them to stay ?

Like when Ginger tops Magnum.

There’ll be blue-bloods over the wide hips of drover.

I think we can forget ely staying.

hamed isn't reliable, he's good but we will always need 3 right backs with him here.


----------------------------------------------------------------------

4 really, if 1 of them's Bauer.

BTW, just had a quick swatch at Elhamed's club career appearances stats ... only averages 23 games a season (all comps) over the previous 8 seasons. He's managed 13 games for us so far in all comps. That looks the very definition of "injury-prone" to me.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
Think that is being simplistic, DtJ?

There's a difference between being injured or not being picked. The whole season he was at Gent he never got in their squad! Looked back all his years and if TM is correct he never had an injury until 4 years ago. Never picked a lot. The occasional disciplinary suspension but no word of an injury.

Headline grab Calum McGregor's stats and he only averages 28 games a season.
----------------------------------------------------------------------
OK, maybe it's more accurate to say that Elhamed isn't used to playing a lot of club football ... ANY season. Just on the last 3 full seasons ... 30 games a season on average (all comps). Only 13 so far this season for us.

Not sure where you get those CalMac figures from ... he's averaged 53 games a season for Celtic alone in the last 3 full seasons, and a mental 48 so far this season.

I'd be delighted if Elhamed comes back and plays a regular part for us, as he was phenomenal pre-injury. Not convinced that's happening though. I'd settle for his more recent average of 30 though, with Frimpong playing the rest.

To be fair, you’re surrounded by sheets of paper all day long.

You’d need Pygmies to flit to give me enough paper

Still think you are being unfair to label him a sick note, Dave, based on one season data.

Not selected does not mean injured.

Time will tell, Silver.

Yes, not selected does not mean injured ... BUT Elhamed's career record of club appearances doesn't suggest a guy who's capable of sustaining 2 games a week over an extended period. All I'm saying. He'll be 29 in a couple of weeks, by which time he'll have made a grand total of 175 league appearances in a 10 year career. Nir Bitton is slightly younger, and has made 256 career league appearances ... and he barely tackles. Just saying ...
