That dropped ball between Arfield and Brown was fantastic. It was well won by Scott.

But Brown was made to look like the complete tit he really is, with all those panicking clearances and falling over his own fat neanderthal arse.



It was a joy to behold that prick getting payback. Watched the full 90 minutes again tonight.... had a few wee tears of joy at the FT whistle.

Love the contempt and disdain shown to the plastic hard man with the glaikit stare. I’ve got a feeling he knows he’s out his depth and will scuttle off to Australia.

Much like that other hard man Roy Aitken who couldn’t cope with Souness and a bit of stick from Gerry McNee and ran away to Newcastle.

Since when did it become a 'celebration'?
It was Brown trying to act the hard man towards Diouf and if anything it was Diouf himself who turned it into a 'celebration' when he was the one holding the trophy at the end of the season and got last laugh on that plastic hard man Brown.
The beggars do love re-writing history and to claim things as their own.

Arfield's mixed it with some of the best in the business down south so I don't think he's going to give a monkeys about upsetting the likes of Brown.

The press have really sucked their cocks over the last 15 years or so , hate this “ Broony” celebration stuff ff’s does he have a patent on it , like the “huddle” the press always attribute to them or the “poznan” they are not original at anything unless it’s something the press seem to be loathe to mention.

Arfield gave Broon an absolute chasing in the Old Firm game.

Halliday got MOTM but for me Arfield was our top performer that day.

He absolutely dominated the lego muncher and doing the Dioufy in his face near the end of the game felt, to me, symbolic.

It was Arfield lording it over Broon and saying I'm younger than you, I'm fitter than you, I'm better than you - get used to this because I'm the one who's going to be dominating this fixture going forward.

Loved Arfield’s attitude in that game, precisely what we’ve been missing for years.
The drop ball was one of the best things I’ve seen at Ibrox in years!!! The way he jockeyed and hustled before the drop and then got stuck right fucking in was a sheer and utter fucking joy to watch. BroonTitTit looked washed up. It also looked like the decisive battle that turned the tide.
Encore!

Arfield knows it’s about mentality and not letting your opponent win the mindset battle

Go in thinking you’ll lose and you will lose

Positive mental attitude and not giving a phuck attitude helps win games

We need to keep that mindset up and not just against St Pats FC. All games we have to go out like that and win.

All over Brown like a rash from kick off that day and out muscled him on countless occasions, as well as having way too much energy for him, despite not being 100% fit for the game.

Throw all that in, plus the fact he's scored the most goals and has the most assists of any midfielder in the league and you can see why he's one of the first names on our team sheet.

For all the shit we throw his way, Brown was, is and will remain their main man for a while yet. He dictates their tempo. He HAD to be stopped for us to win. Make no mistake, Arfield dominating him went a huge way to winning us that match.

A guy who never got a kick against Kevin Thomson and Barry Ferguson and yet was allowed for far too long to lord about midfield against us by a bunch of players who were, let's be blunt, uterrly terrified of him. He had them beaten before kick off. A guy whose reputation had him a goal up before the whistle.

Arfield burst that particular bubble two weeks ago.

Arfield's performance that day reminded me of Alex Rae's against Lennon in 2004 when he took him on at his own game and completely bossed him.

Brown relies on his opponents fearing him. Arfield was never going to be scared of him.
