KELLY’S Eye will never win any awards, certainly not popularity ones.
In fact, I would not win a popularity contest in my own house. My daughter has been giving me severe grief recently for being “horrible” to Jack Compton.
“No I haven’t,” I pleaded. But according to her I was guilty as charged.
Kelly has had to mark Compo quite low recently after a string of below-par displays.
I was not horrible, just honest. Kelly mentioned his talent and his magical left foot but pointed out that he was not doing the business.
So who was the hero on Easter Monday? None other than JC. Kelly could not have been happier, Jack’s a smashing fella.
But it seems Jack had more than just me as a detractor. A fan in the Town End had been giving him terrible stick ... and that was when he was warming up!
So when Compton’s shot hit the back of the net there was only one destination for his celebration. “Come on, who was it?” screamed the player as he ran towards the ecstatic fans.
We don’t know but would like to.
Kelly’s Eye will take his hat off to Jack now – if I owned a hat – but will the abuser send an apology to the player?
We hope there will be some fair play after Jack’s flair play?
