Celtic spanking

It doesn’t do to read overmuch into a pre-season game as part of a shirt-selling tour, but DC United really put the hurt on Celtic last night. I didn’t go in person, because I didn’t trust myself to behave and I want to live. Plus the weather was crap.

So plainly Celtic were not match-fit and Strachan hasn’t really sorted out the positioning, there were some players missing, and the humidity was plainly getting them down – but that doesn’t explain away the spanking that they took. DC United played well — good use of space, decent passing, decent pace, and isn’t it funny how much better Adu plays when he thinks foreigners might be watching?

Strachan looked stunned at the end of the match. Perhaps this tour will be the equivalent of the Artmedia Bratislava match from last year and get the Bhoys riled up. Hope not.
