League Cup Final
Celtic v Dundee Utd
Were just recovering from a fiery Scottish cup quarter-final between Celtic and Dundee utd last weekend ,3 sendings off ,tackles flying ,irate managers and players,refereeing mistakes and a decent football match despite all the furor,1-1 it ended and the 2 will lock horns again on Wednesday night 18th march at parkhead,whatever your view on the sendings off all that matters for us Celtic fans is big VVD is free to play in todays final…
The contests between ourselves and Dundee utd are taking over the month of march ,up next is todays league cup final and bhoy am i looking forward to the game,the familiarity may become an issue but we need to take each game as it comes ,win the cup final today and just move on to the next one ,a solid base to a treble could be achieved today with a win at Hampden ..
Cup finals don’t come around to often and this one has mixed fortunes for the hoops losing more than theve won ,todays game will be a bruising encounter im sure there seems to be a bit off needle between the clubs and it can be good to spice things up,on the pitch we need to stay composed though and not be losing any players to silly challenges ,be professional and remember what this trophy means to the club and the fans..
Ronnie deila will have the team well-drilled and prepared for the job ahead ,of course today we wont have the services of Stuart Armstrong and Gary Mckay Stevens who are cup tied so the guys who come in will have to fit in to the way the teams been operating last few weeks ,if Nir Biton is fit he will no doubt be joined by Scott Brown and Stefan Johanson in the engine room..
Building a team around these 3 players is whats made Celtic such a force this season and with Virgil Van Dyk and Denayer at the back and Craig Gorden in goals the nucleus of a fine side is in the making ,even if it is till the end of the season,up top i think Ronnie Deila will play Griffith from the start with Guidetti on the bench ,il take any win today just to get over the line and im not seeing an open final ,probably very cagy and im predicting a 2-1 celtic win ….
The man I think can win the cup for Celtic is Kris Commons I believe he will get on the score sheet today he’s never far from the action and if he’s on song could be the difference between the sides ,it’s a one-off game and anyones game ,lets just hope for a good final and to be entertained ….
