Here are some Clumpany tips following today’s Hibs-Celtic game.
If you are a Celtic fan who has seen it all and who possesses a sense of perspective, you deserve a pat on the back.
If you are a Hibs fan, get yourself several large drinks. Three points have been well earned at the business end of the season. Your side had a good go at Celtic and won the game. Fair play to them!
If you are a Sevco fan enjoying Celtic getting beaten, or a Celtic fan feeling utterly anguished about the Hoops’ third domestic defeat in almost two full seasons then I have the following to say to you…
FFS get a grip. This is football. It is a competitive sport, and while we all may have lived through decades of win-at-all costs cheating by the first Ibrox club, that doesn’t mean that it was even remotely normal or acceptable! Despite the attitude of governing bodies and some journalists.
Sport is supposed to be competitive,
Upsets are supposed to happen.
If sport is rigged and/or predictable, it is wrong!
For the benefit of any David Murray era-pining Sevco fans/ journalists (or People who are both – you know who you are…), let me make something absolutely clear….
Sport is almost always at its best when upsets can happen.
When every team and their supporters can have a day in the sun,
When expectation and any sort of sense of entitlement can be blown out of the water.
This is what you sign up for when you take an interest in sport. If you expect perpetual success, or require your team to do ‘whatever it takes’ to win, then you are a dangerous individual who should be kept away from any sort of position of responsibility.
Because you are a menace.
You don’t want to see a sport. You want to see a procession in honour of your own self-centredness.
You want to have your aching insecurities soothed by shafting others.
And as such, you really should GTF and spend your time in a more appropriate manner than pretending to like football.
Perhaps you could buy a bike and chase after Lance Armstrong to get his autograph?
Hopefully it will turn out to be written in invisible ink and you will learn a valuable lesson.
Well done Hibs!
Let’s get it right next time, Celtic!
