It all started the moment Gerrard was presented to the crowd. In fact, what was a mind blowing crowd.
Then we get a phenomenal reaction from the football world. Zidane, Guardiola commenting on the new Rangers manager - a sure sign we’re back in the big-time from a profile perspective.
The papers make ridiculous links to players we had no chance of signing in an attempt to undermine the positivity by creating disappointment. But we’ve had so much dross over the last few years that we’re realists. Didn’t fall for it while the signings being made continued to promote positivity.
Then we see the team in action and the signs are there. Solid looking back four. Strong keeper.Dynamic looking midfield. And physical. Everything we have complained about for years appears to be reversed.
Meanwhile, celtic sign 2 players they already had. Fail to address their weaknesses (to date), spunk money in a light show instead of the easiest signing they could have made. Brendan’s rattle is out the pram and the blame everybody but me show starts. Out of the CL to a mediocre AEK. And the paedo timebomb a pre-pubescent baw-hair from blowing.
Yes, the feelgood factor is well and truly back. Let’s keep it going starting with Maribor on Thursday and hitting top gear at the piggery with a victory there on the back of an unbeaten run!
So whats the feeling? Another false dawn or is this the start of the end of ‘The Journey’?
