I cannot believe the confidence, bordering on arrogance, i see in some posts. let's face it, in my opinion, we are not certain to win this league. The cup is also up for grabs. What is the argument for the confidence, because i don't see it.

I will concede that we have been extraordinarily hit by injuries, creative players which always hurts, but other than flashes we don't look at it. As for our defending. we all see it.

Our big problem is other teams know how to play us, i posted that we give chances, and in some cases real gifts, they sit in and pass out. This team is also young, mistakes will be made. Never forget the usual amount of 'honest mistakes'as well.

All things considered we should be favourites, rightly so, but certainties? not for me. Is this why some sections of our support moan so quickly at every loose pass? They think it should be easy? Get last season outa your heads, a one off never to be forgotten season we were lucky enough to witness.

It will NEVER be repeated.

GJ I know the point your trying to make that people are being unrealistic and that's causing all the complaints. I think that although nothing is ever certain. When you loose two games in the space of two seasons and still when playing poor are winning that's showing the mark of champions. I do think people have been over critical but don't let the expectations drop. If we take a treble this season we have walked away again progressing on last year. Footballs a game based on merits. If BRs side walk away wirh European football after Xmas with (fingers crossed) a treble its been progress.

GJ the confidence comes because we have by far a better calibre of player than any other team in Scotland . Tell me if we're not going to win the title who Is? Our closest challengers Aberdeen couldn't get anywhere near winning it when we were rank rotten under Ronny and points wise they haven't improved since then. If you think we're not certain to win this league then go to the bookies and they"ll give you 66/ 1 on either Aberdeen or the Sevies, must be worth a couple of quid if you think there's a chance we won't win it.

Guys, im not saying we wont, im just saying we could. look at us two up and cruising until a gift arrives and other teams get energy and belief. I will concede to holding the team to account until we are full strength, Rogic and Paddy have been a real miss, but eight points? Two losses and two draws? Just saying we need to spark and quick.

This is he inverse of the Ronny Roar, a guy who couldn't manage but with a team that was far superior to the opposition, that even when playing poorly they still managed to win the league with points to spare, now we have Brendan, someone who is a manager, but the team has been disrupted by injuries and loss of form, and some, a combination of both, and we are still top of the league, the league is a certainty, the cup might be not so, but I think out of all the quarter finalists, The rangers are also rans, the zenit game is more important, I think, if Celtic turn up, they can win it in the first leg, and then the whole season takes on a new complection.

Gj even if we do lose a couple and draw a couple of games, your assuming that either the sheep or sevco will win all theirs, not going to happen in my opinion.

Steph, i don't think it will but a bad bounce an off day. mclean as a ref! who knows? Look at the amount of times we have players booked for a first tackle this might add up with three-four games to go.

@4leafclover I get it on paper if we win a treble this year that we have made progress with Europe after Christmas BUT there shouldn't be any doubt from fans that we are in actual fact behind last year.
1. We have dropped more points in the league.
2. We have received more defeats in Europe and heavy ones at that.
3. Our recruitment is definitely behind the previous year.

Sure there are reasons why we aren't as consistent this season but you cannot say we are progressing surely.

@GJ, the tone of your past few posts has surprised me, why so negative. Yes Celtic have not been as fluent as last year, but our injury list this season has been horrendous, that is not an excuse by the way, just another reason. Also Sevco, Hearts, Hibs and Aberdeen have added a bit more competition to the league, which we Celtic fans should welcome and see it as an opportunity to raise our game.
Once Griffiths, Rogic, Roberts, Armstrong all come back, and Dembele and Odsonne get more game time, added to Commper and young Hendry and also Ralston improving our defence we should be OK.

He is saying that jim and don't call him surely😂🇮🇪.

Good comments and some valid points to discuss, my take is like most, injuries, new players, loans signing, changes in formations to accomadate the team all this must have an impact on the dynamics of the team and playing style. With all that going on we are still Numero uno, the big cheese, el honchos. last season is gone, were on target this season. anything else is a brucey bonus. stroll on thursday and right team and right tactics and the fans at home we can do them. if not we had a good euro run in my eyes. hail hail.

What an inappropriate time to post your negative thoughts . The wee crowd on Saturday last were very vocal with groaning and abuse giving . That and negative posting doesn't encourage our team to play better.
