This Was The Weekend That Routed The ?Comforting Lie? That We?re In Decline.

The media in Scotland have short memories.
We know that. I?m going to cover them in a couple of articles later on but they won?t be about what?s happening on the park, as I?m sure many of you have already guessed. Those who are supposed to cover the sport are supposed to be able to do joined up thinking, but they are totally immune to it.
Our team is getting its act together, and there?s been very little scrutiny of what that actually means. A fully fit Celtic squad, confident, happy, its players focussed on the job at hand ? that?s actually a scary proposition for the other clubs, and for the hacks, and it should be. It?s not impossible that we?ll secure the title by a wide margin this season and if we win the treble then who would bet against us doing it again next year"

The machine hasn?t been rolling in this campaign. Its engine has stuttered a few times. What amazes me are the number of people ? supposedly intelligent people, but actually Scottish sports journalists ? who seemed to view our poor form of this campaign as some sort of major structural weakness, rather than a consequence of lots of games, an ever changing starting eleven and a rash of injuries which would have derailed most seasons.
There seems to be a general presumption amongst these people that our form last season was a one-off; they may well be right, but I?m betting that with a fully fit squad we?d have been closer to that campaign than to this one. Next season we may well again put together the kind of winning run that leaves everyone else in the dust.
In fact, it?s more likely than not.
Our ability to win the big games, when it counts, is unerring. We went to Pittodrie under the most severe pressure the media could put on us, and we got a result. When we can go to Ibrox and get one after being behind twice and then down to ten men, you?d think even the stupidest person of a Sevco persuasion would be concerned that maybe, just maybe, all the talk about us being a lesser team all of a sudden was wishful thinking ?
But they genuinely believe it. And maybe they have to. Maybe it?s important ? maybe it?s vital ? to their sense of self and well-being that they labour under the illusion that our bubble has burst and that they only need to improve a little to catch us.
Because otherwise, what hope do they have" None wh...
