Celtic Cruise In The Cup As Roberts Shines Again !


One thing i noticed again at the weekend was how accomplished 19 yr old Patrick Roberts is as a winger the player Celtic signed on loan from Manchester city has shown in the last 3 games… glimpses of what he is capable of doing to defenses here in Scotland,on Sunday against Morton his introduction on the hour mark injected fresh impetus into the Celtic attack. A wonderful solo run from the 19-year-old saw him leave several opponents for dead before striking the post.when a player shows skill like that it has to be embraced,Celtic have some great young talent at the club if you add teirney and biton to a ever growing list…..

Manchester city payed fulham 12 million for Roberts if thats not indication of his worth i dont know what is,we now have to let him loose on the premier league in the 11 game run in ,he actually could be the difference between a 5th title in a row and ultimate disaster should Aberdeen manage to snatch a title we could have wrapped up weeks ago,someones doing something right at the club finding exciting young player like Roberts and biton ,and with teirney also coming through the academy its not all doom and gloom,yes this season has been a slog …and yes the manager has made errors of judgement ,but i still believe we will be champions come may…..

Manchester City’s Patrick Roberts in action

The Scottish cup semi final through up a interesting match up as we all know with sevco5088 becoming our opponents ,they actually have a few decent players themselves …Christ did i just say that …the match will be Celtics 2nd ever after we triumphed a few yrs back in the league cup 2-0 ,that day Celtic bossed the ibrox club and i see this game mid April being a bit closer of course i only see one winner and thats Scotland champions Celtic football club ….it will be by the odd goal but like ive said above if we unleash Patrick Roberts on them he could prove valuable,with teirney bombing down the wing from the back sevco5088 wont know whats hit them……

Sundays match against Morton was a formality after 45 mins as celtic strolled to a 3-0 lead with goals from Griffiths,Mckay Steven,And Mcgreggor……The hoops stepped of the gas at the begining of the 2nd half for 15 mins till Roberts introduction where several chances were created including the winger smashing a shot against the post,the sparce parkhead crowd who turned up must have enjoyed the 30 min run out from the kid ,and will be looking forward to the next installment,partick thistle is Celtics lunchtime opponents on Saturday in the Glasgow derby ,the team need to get back on the winning track as 4 points separates the hoops from Aberdeen who could close that gap midweek before Celtic play,its the final run in and i believe there will be green and white ribbons on the trophy come may………………..

it may be a grind or it may be a canter who knows but Aberdeen look ropy and some of there wins of late have been lucky,but well done to them for making a fight of it again this season,the dons are becoming our regular challengers for the title,with a few games to squeeze in before the sevco5088 game it would be nice to boost our goal difference even more,when we reflect on the season at the finish all thats went before will be a distant memory,i do feel the bosses job is a goner though and a freshen up is on the cards ,theirs to many fans against him now and once that rot sets in its a formality,no matter if we win a double or not Ronnie will probably get the shove,my feelings haven’t changed but i wont judge till season end because i feel thats when analysis should take place,ive only one thing left to say and thats …………………..

BRING ON THE SEVCO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
