The performance was one that we hadn't seen for a long long time. Massively overdue imo. After a good search we finally overturned a stone and found our form. It was a delight to be playing football that was an ease on the pupils. The accuracy and the speed of which we passed the ball was more than impressive. The game was read better than a novel and the awareness of others from each individual was evident, summed up through Bale's goal for 4 as Tommy chipped a delightful ball over the back line for the Welshman. Gaww and doesn't that Jake Livermore look a natural. Raw talent and a real passion to play for the lilywhite. Love 'im!
Despite not being the strongest opposition we will face this season, nothing can be taken away from the quality of the performance. None of the 5 goals were belted in from 30 odd yards but were well worked. We showed why we achieved a spot in the Champions League quarters last year and were very good value.
We played as a team and we gave the Scot's more than a good kicking. Their attempts were in vain as we ran riot. More of the same please boys.
'Arry must've given them an 'ell of a team talk prior to kick off. Enjoy below
