'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Carpe Diem

Jackie McNamara knows all about pressure.

The weight of expectation at Parkhead is far greater than at most clubs, and as team captain, much of the responsibilty for on field results was his.

Still regarded with affection by Celtic fans, he carried the armband with pride, and a quiet efficiency, and as he does now at Wolves, commanded the respect of the entire dressing room.

Following his first major career injury, Jackie missed most of last season, a crushing blow to the side, returning for a handful of games at its anti climax, and would have been forgiven for asking what he had got himself into when the massive clear out of players began.

Bit ironically, it is the widesweeping changes caused by Glenn Hoddle's failure to guide the team to promotion that have led to the side hovering a cats whisker away from the play off positions, and within sight of the crest of the league.

Something Jackie considered earlier this week,

"I don't think it was planned by the club that they would have to go into the situation with this financial structure. With the parachute payments ending there wasn't really any choice but the young lads that have come in have excelled and can only get better.' he said.

'There was a feeling we might struggle this season and maybe be mid-table or even below after losing so many players.

'But we've got ourselves in a position with a chance to at least get in the play-offs and just have to make the most of it.'

Carpe Diem lads. Sieze The Day!
