We shouldn’t worry, Brendan is at his best when the pressure is on…
Dropping points against Motherwell on Saturday was not a disaster as such, but it was nevertheless both disappointing and incredibly frustrating.
It would have been worse had the bottlers kept their bottle by taking full advantage against Aberdeen, but thankfully they bottled it yet again by also dropping two points to keep the gap at the top of the league at eight points.
Even if they had won and cut the gap to six with a game in hand, I still wouldn’t have lost too much sleep. Yes, they would be breathing down our necks, and it would have became rather nervous and perhaps a bit uncomfortable, but I think such a situation would bring the best out in our side.
Call me crazy, but I think we enjoy it better with a bit of solid competition. In fact I think Brendan thrives on it, and it brings the best out in him.
Remember his first spell? When theRangers were getting close to us and making noises about catching us, the outcome? A 3-2 win at Ibrox for the bhoys despite going down to 10 men at 2-2.
Then losing at Ibrox before the winter break in late 2018? He came back rejuvenated and steered us further ahead before he unfortunately left for Leicester City.
Now he’s back, he’s proving it again. Going to Ibrox back in September with a patched up backline and knowing a defeat would topple us off the top of the table. The outcome? A one nil win sent us four points clear. Brendan thrives on pressure, we are in good hands and welcome any title challenge with full confidence.
Just an Ordinary Bhoy
