Its the morning after the day before.
Celtic have won at Ibrox and gone 6 points clear and a very healthy Goal Difference.
With 6 games to go, we have 4 games at home and are firm favourites to win the 10th Title in 11 years.
We also have a Semi Final which could go towards winning a potential Treble.
This is unbelievable when we consider how we finished last season as a total wreck of a Football Club.
What a brilliant job Ange and his side have done, especially since the turn of the year.
The consistency has been outstanding ( unbeaten in 26 games) and the contribution from every member in the Squad has been fantastic.
On the pod we have pondered questions like what impact the new Sports Science guru could have but in reality, this all comes down to one thing.
It may have taken a while for all the fans to get fully behind Angeball but by God he has everyone’s backing now.
It may have taken a while for every player to get up to speed and understand the requirements and the instructions but now we can swap and rotate personnel with no detrimental impact.
It may have taken 2 windows and investment in January but Michael Nicholson backed Ange’s demands for getting his specific players in early and we see immediate benefits with players like Maeda, Hatate and O’Riley.
And the one aspect driving this is one mans Faith in both himself and his footballing ethos.
Many questioned Angeball as his newly built Celtic side began its journey; it lurched sometimes sideways but slowly forward in the first half of the season after a poor start losing 3 in 6.
The players looked easily shaken and the football lurched from lovely to terrifying.
Despite all the Media clamour for him ditching his “footballing dream” and being pragmatic, Ange simply shrugged, said “No Titles are won until Season end” and got on with the job in hand at Lennoxtown.
The Media mocked at his rejection of compromising his football philosophy ” If you are a strict vegetarian, you don’t drop into Macca’s just because you are hungry mate, you know?”
But Ange had Faith.
We have all had a laugh this season linking Jota to his lookalike George Michael, even the Celtic Xmas video was at it, but its the Faith of Ange in Ange that means so much more at the end of the day.
Ange had Faith that he didn’t need to change his ways.
Ange had Faith that he didn’t need to give into the downcriers.
Ange had faith in Ange.
Ange is reaping the rewards.
This Celtic side is consistent.
This Celtic side is robust.
This Celtic side is confident in itself and every member of its squad.
This Celtic side understand their Manager and his demands.
This Celtic side have faith in their Managers direction.
This Celtic fanbase have total faith in our Manager.
He came halfway round the world, alone, accepted our backroom staff, got their buy-in along with buy in from our new Captain Calmac and players like Tom Rogic and Tony Ralston. Ange worked with them, others and all his brilliantly identified signings and has built a potential Title claiming side full of spirit and determination, players willing to do all they possibly can for their Manager.
Today we salute Ange and celebrate the mans Faith in himself.
In Ange we all Trust!
