All hail Kyogo – The Etims Podcast

Desi, Ralph and Hector get together to celebrate the brilliant feeling of winning again!

We salute Ange, Calmac, Dom Mackay and of course the wonder that is Kyogo.

We look back at the wonderful last second Ralston header at Ross County and the Cup Final as well as looking forward to the next mad 2 weeks of football, Covid permitting!, and the January window signing.

There’s also a wee 10 minute Xmas cracker at the end with famous Celts and Celtic fans to help bring some Xmas cheer and say thanks to everyone for listening through the last year or so!

Worth bearing in mind that goalkeepers often get better later in their career – there are plenty of examples, but Buffon (still playing for Parma at 43 in Serie B) the most obvious one. It’s not impossible that, at 34, Joe Hart might even have the best couple of years of his career ahead of him.

Here’s a head on the chopping block prediction: On January 2nd, the Huns will kick lumps outta Kyogo (who “goes down too easily”) and – although we’ll be the better side (again) – we’ll struggle
to score against them. Kyogo, on a yellow for simulation (see above) and kicked black n blue, will be taken off. Ange will bring on Giakoumakis who scores the winner and revives his career, becoming an important part of winning the league.

They say that all the top teams build their success on having a strong ‘spine’, these central players control the tempo of the game and can lead the team forward, this new Celtic team has a very strong ‘spine’. Brave – Hart, builds from the back, CCV pushes the ball to Starfelt who takes the ball forward to Calmac, who dictates the tempo and builds attacks. Kyogo @Tame The Mane, and drive the support Insane, finishes the attack. Our second goal looked straight of the training pitch.
Hart – CCV – Starfelt – Calmac – Kyogo. The ‘Spine’ of the team.

Mike,
Starfelt gives it back to CCV… only, always.

Steve, Without a doubt CCV is the stronger centre back, his stats confirm that. Starfelt and CCV do the sideways shuffle constantly throughout the games, probably following Ange’s instructions and presumably to take the energy out of the opposition front players. Starfelt’s passing stats are good, but he is definitely weak in the air and opposition teams do target that weakness, he is, at just over six foot tall a bit on the small side for a centre back and he is a right footed, left sided centre back, that must be a disadvantage straight away.

Agree Mike and, to be fair, he had got better at feeding Jota early enough to give him a run at defender (s). He does however, for me, run most unevenly and I often wonder if this tires him out mid second half which opposition ( often subs) see and go for. Ange pleased with his desire and commitment to play on Sunday after getting blootered on the coupon.

Steve, i noticed that the opposition teams now like to employ their ‘Hulks’ in the second half, if plan A doesn’t work then plan B is operated, with associated flailing arms and elbows. This seasons big suprise is surely Anthony Ralston, adding good crosses and the odd goal to his robust style of play, like CCV the right side of the team has now got an uncharacteristic bit of dig, forcing the opposition down our LH side. It’s no wonder then that we have the best defensive record in the SPFL, especially with Hart as back up, easily the best keeper since FF. The two Kyogo goals on Sunday was the best vaccine that we could have received, I cannot wait to see his booster. Have a great, safe Christmas to you and to yours….
