At the start of every season we have the usual predictions from sport writers and pundits alike.
True to form, and without an ounce of logic, most of them will tip Sevco to win the Premiership and or the other two cups thrown in for good measure.
Regardless of who plays or manages them. It’s just the SMSM way.
Unfortunately, this season their predictions been blown away with the form of Brendan Rodgers Celtic, after the Hoops dumped the hacks’ favourites out of both the league Cup and Scottish Cup at the semi-final stage.
Add to that the three league wins and a draw, leaving the Ibrokes side with one solitary point out of a possible twelve. In all fairness, they did celebrate that point like it really meant something!
So, if the laptop loyal can’t get it right, who can?
Well, this 15 year-old boy was as accurate in his prediction as any hack or pundit has been this season.
The boy from St Ninians in Giffnock called Sevco’s ‘striker’ Martyn Waghorn shite while he was walking past him in November. Hearing the comment, Wagpen asked the young lad to ‘say it to his face’, which the boy did as he nonchalantly ate his sandwich.
At this point the Sevco player ‘walked away’, knowing the boy was bang on.
The last two weeks have shown just how bad Waghorn is. (Although he’s not alone) After starting both games, it’s fair to say, it would be hard to argue with the young boys opinion.
I mean who can forget his ‘Forrest Gump‘ run down the line and out of the park at Hampden last week? Or his two headers, only yards out, that didn’t even hit the target.
If this is the quality of player Sevco have, makes you wonder why the pundits and hacks tipped them for ANYTHING, let alone the league title? Maybe they should ask a 15 year-old to make next seasons predictions…
