SANDMAN'S DEFINITIVE RATINGS: CELTIC v SPECTRE


"Success demands a high level of logistical
and organizational competence."

- General Patton.




ROXIE - 6/10

Competent. Gets a score for keeping the captain's
armband clean. Spent most of the first half
learning new numbers from the Green Brigade;
second half rehearsing them.



TONY THE TIGER - 6.5/10

Competent again. Tony was up against a Dick and
crossed like one on his first few forays. But
you know you get 100 percentile points from him,
and his intensity didn't drop regardless of class
or number of opponents.



FIELD MARSHALL - 6/10

Competent once more. Enthusiasm of youth to rush
up and down the left in Notebook's wake. Keen to
get himself a name, this strategically-aware kid.



GET CARTER - 6/10

Competent and gigantic. May even have doubled his
goals tally with decent headed opprtunity, but
cruised through a stressless evening.



STAR LORD - 5.5/10

Competent-ish. Simple passing escaped him like
the escaped-goat-scapegoat he's getting labelled.
But eventually settled when he realised they had
no forward intent or capability. I'd send him to
a hippy retreat to work on his anxiety next
international break.



MCCARTHYISM - 7/10

More than competent. Sunday's head-in-hands culpable
expensive misfire became tonights burglar-of-the-match
when he unlocked their dogged defence with the perfect
pass through the midge's jap's-eye to set up the opener.

Also achived a career-best two starts in a row without
serious injury.



EDDIE TURNBULL - 7/10

Competent and controversial. Theme tune becoming
Happy Mondays' 'Lazyitis' as situations open up for
him, only to be wasted by dalliances that provoke
crowd ire.

Yet, his Pirlo-esque ambitions may yet come to pass
(if he can fucking pick the right one...) as he is
displaying more consistency of desire (wife, take note)
and shirking the opportunity to hide; plenty given by
the ranks of low defensive blocks we face in Scotland.

Capped a fine game by stroking in the third from
distance with the nonchalance of a passing, staggering
jakey knocking a wayward ball back into the school
playgound.



ROGIC - 5.5/10

Competent to a degree... But despite his endeavour
to cause chaos between their lines nothing quite came
off for Oz they way we'd expect. Passes just an ounce
off being sublime, shots blocked, clips intercepted,
crosses squandered. Don't sweat it, mayte, Sunday's
the one that counts.



ABADASS - 6/10

Competent and continually at it. Not a lot worked
out for him but he's a nuisance for defenders and
his optimism paid off with a follow-up from their
40-a-day keeper's duff parry, which Abadass headed
in well under pressure. If he could find a decent
final ball he'd be devastating.



NOTEBOOK - 7.5/10 MOTM

Beyond copmpetent. Faith; If you need somebody,
not just anybody, to unlock a stubborn opponent,
then this Young Gun's having some fun.

In games like these, there's got to be a player
who'll declare, "I'm Your Man" and produce some
magic to make the difference. Both his Father
Figures will be very proud.




THE YETI - 5.5/10

Competent but impotent. The fury and lone furlow
ploughed must be attended by sharpness; he's
battling for his jersey but when the clear-cut
moments arrive he needs to be more alert and
display the finesse required to be the No.1.
Well, we kind of know he's not, but...





SUBS:


MAN OF - N/A

Competently ran on smiling, as usual, amazingly
avoided being carded.


OF JUSTICE - 6/10

Competent debut. Dream debut, really - a walk
in the Celtic Park against ten knackered men.
Nice introduction for our Great Irish Hope.


JURAN JURAN - 6/10

Competent competitiveness as he was willing to
get involved and try and make a few things happen.
He didn't, but still expect some class to show
in coming months.


BITCOIN - N/A

Competently quiet. Padded about like he was
wearing his slippers; nothing new there.



ANITA DOBSON - 6.5/10

Competently in charge. Phew, mayte. No danger of
career-ending disaster as his barely-reshuffled
side took care of the linoleum louts with eventual
ease.

Managed to avoid injury or controversy of any kind,
so after recent turmoil and gathering clouds, he'll
welcome some sunshine into his day to ease the burden
of the job. Not real sunshine; metaphorical, obviously
- the weather's turning to shit. Let's hope Ange stays
bright. i.e don't listen to JFK or Chesney Jr.



OVERALL - 7/10

Best term to sum up the night is probably... 'Awright'.
I hate the idea of Raith Rovers. Not the town - nothing
against a minging place I'll never be seen dead in...
- but the idea of Raith Rovers provokes crippling
memories of '94 and the absolute desolation of that
miserable Sunday at Mordor.

So getting through and getting them to fuck was a
League Cup game akin to a dental root canal visit;
just get it over with and bring on the Huns, at
some point, inevitably. And, thankfully, we did.
With competence.



And fock thee diaz Brothers!



Go Away Now.

Big Tony apart from some of the crosses made a shit mistake that could have proved costly when he put Hart under pressure when playing out from back, Hart gave him the ball to go wide and Tony gave him it back with opposition player in the box causing a misplaced clearance to occur and giving the opposition possession back, could be costly against teams you need to keep the ball away from.

Didnt see the game just the highlights. Jota played well but we're still not a unit yet, surprised Rogic AND Turnbull played together again. Glad to see Scales got some game time. Mounting injuries are a worry, in the warm up too. Are the new players trying too hard to impress? Something's not right there.
