They never fail. And we’ve seen it all before. Since Sevco managed to steal a point at Celtic Park, all we’ve heard about is how their season has turned around, and with a new manager, they could finish on a high.
Currently 33 points adrift of Champions Celtic, and trailing Aberdeen in second by eight points, the wonderful SMSM would have you believe the new man Pedro will work wonders with a squad that a even a guy with a magic hat couldn’t get to compete.
Among the Portuguese traits, who only a few weeks ago was an unknown, is his excellent command of the English language*. And to be fair, he does speak well, especially compared to the Real Rangers Men who rivaled him for the post, Barry Ferguson, Alex Rae, John Brown and Alex McLeish!
His Wikepedia like knowledge of Hamilton Accies and Alex Crawford in particular, had the Laptop Loyal drooling about his thorough he is, unlike that bad Mark Warburton. If only the same SMSM had used Google when Craig Whyte was marching down the Copeland Road….
Anyway, the Pedro Revolution is in full swing.
Second in the league with the Scottish Cup in the bag, after they dispose of Celtic in the semi-final, will see the Gullibears flogging their weans to buy season tickets.
Or maybe not. Reality will see them lucky to stay in third place, and a defeat at the hands of the Treble chasing Celts will bring poor puppet Pedro crashing back down to earth.
Still, he’ll have this month’s Manager of the Month award to look back on. His name is being inscribed on it as wee speak..
*Ronny Deila spoke good English but was never praise for it. And don’t let them compare Ronny and Pedro’s managerial record. Ronny came to Celtic as a league winner in Norway taking Stromgodset into the Champions League. Pedro on the other hand was out of contract in a few weeks having taken his team to FIFTH in the Quatari League.
