Celtic 6 Inverness Caledonia Thistle 0

6 weeks on from the first match of the season and things are looking quite good. I know ICT aren't a severe test but some of the football last night was excellent. I like the looks of Emilio, Big Danny, Juarrez, Ledley and Hooper. On top of that the others, excluding Glenda, all played well last night.

I think I can see why Lennon is sticking with Loovens. A settled central defence is key to a winning team. Lennon thinks that Loovens has something (what?) and just needs the confidence that comes from winning and losing few goals. I think he is right as far as the SPL is concerned.

I had a great seat last night in the front row of the Upper Main Stand and could watch Lennon going mental at Loovens, and turning to Mjallby as if to say "get this sorted". I think the fact that he didn't bring Rogne on for the last 15 minutes is all about building Loovens' confidence.

Danny was a good captain last night, shouting, bullying and organising. It's a real pity that Brown was given the captaincy by Lennon; a hasty decision for 2 reasons. One, it makes it hard to drop Brown (the football is better when he isn't playing) and two, he isn't captain material.

Come on Juventas, you know you need Brown.
