    Aye, but as in the lyrics to that song, the name of which I cant remember at the moment "If God wanted football played up there, he would've built goalposts in the air!"

    PS: I had to google yer Douglas Bader!

    Not to be confused with his namesake Andreas Baader, who also achieved fame with the RAF (albeit a slightly different organisation). Great movie by the way, if there are any ageing student radical idealists out there who were fascinated by that era.

    what have the royal air force got to do with some german

    haha funny that you mention douglas now with andreas when that movie was just released a few weeks ago. I don't really understand what the fascination would be with them, nor did they to be honest. what exactly was their ideal?!

    Sheridan started today and was very poor. Looks to have a bad touch.

    I only saw 30 mins of the first half but he did well in the bit I saw. He was the main target man and laid the ball off well. I didn't see a bad touch from him. Celtic were well on top from what I saw so I was surprised to hear they were well beaten in the end.

    He had 55 mins before being subbed for Samaras and had a shocker. His first touch was woeful, the high balls for flick ons he rarely won and in fact seemed hardly to make a challenge. It seemed to be a combination of mistiming his jumps, positional sense, poor service. Really disappointing.

    Only for Samaras has had a few stinkers since coming back from injury and Vennegor is still injured, I really couldnt see Sheridans performances of late justifying a first 11 place.

    I only patches of this game but Samaras wasted one or two really good chances, particularly a header when it was two nil with about 20 mins to go. McGeady also came on.

    Alan O'Brien also played the 90 mins for Hibs on the left wing. Fairly industrious performance and played a pivotal part in the 2nd goal for Hibs

    Another motm performance from him against St Mirren.

    McGhee:
    "I thought Cillian Sheridan was our best player and we have no right to ask that of him. He is a player on loan and I thought he was terrific, but the rest didn't do enough to support that."

    It will be a great move for him, getting those consistent run of games under his belt.

    However, it was another tall Irish Centre Forward that came up with the all important goods on the night in Mehmet!!

    Really think that this Kid is an exciting prospect for us. An aerial presence up front for us is what we've been missing since Quinny retired and would be great to unsettle defenders in the last 15 minutes of games. Appreciate that he has a lot to learn (Stokes impact up there obviously never fully materialised), however he seems like a mature lad who is eager to learn and if there is one thing that Mark McGhee can teach him is how to become a good striker. Another season under McGhee could see him make great strides, especially considering the assistance he's already given Young Irish players development (playing Keano as a 17 year old at Wolves) as opposed to the detrimental effect of the ginger midget.

    Strachan and McGhee are 2 really good friends who know a good player and they both definitely rate Sheridan. I'd take a lot from that alone. He's clearly a very intelligent player and it's just about getting the games under his belt to improve his touch and other basics.

    It's rare to see a young player with such a good understanding of the game but still so raw. There's just something about him. I think his instincts are good if that makes sense. ie. if he has to do something without much time to think he'll probably do the right thing.

    To be fair as soon as he moved I thought that it smacked of a Strachan recommendation. Agree about his natural instincts - only seen him a couple of times, however his ability to know what to do impulsively bodes well. Also encouraging that he's a bright lad as intelligence and the ability to learn turned Quinny from a big lump at Arsenal to an international quality striker. If he can hone his goalscoring skills and learn to use his weight to outmuscle defenders we'll have a real player on our hands. The fact that he was playing pub football in Donegal three years ago (believe that's true?) shows just how much he's developed already.

    Some here would argue that he's taken a step back since then.

    Has a spot for a "Big Man" opened up in the squad after Folans withdrawing of himself (while not injured and reasonably fit) from the last squad I wonder???
    I pity the fool!.... But suggest ways that he might improve himself.
