As Celtic fans we like to think we are the best fans in the world but the last few seasons the abuse some of our players have had for our ranks is incredible.
Guys being written off, abused and told to get out of our club after a few bad games time and time again

Our captain our top, goal scorer and several players that have came through our youth system and as fans like to put it
"One of our own"
Today I read one fan say Henderson is no good in midfield. After about 4 games and some good displays?
I can't get my head around it.

I am not against criticising players who are having a bad game but our fans just seem to be going way over the top these days.

Kev, we often disagree but you’re 100% spot on. The criticism of our players is starting to reek of ‘we are the people’ entitlement. I’ve watched Celtic for over 50 years and have NEVER booed a Celtic player. We were born of famine and oppression and have the right to win nothing. And ‘fans’ if that is what the cretans call themselves that throw Buckie bottles and coins at opposition players consider themselves to be the best in the world I’m seriously missing something.

{Ed007's Note - These days if a player misplaces a pass he should be sold.}

And do you know what's worse guys. That it's not all young people that didn't live through our bad times. It's just as much people our age and the more success we have the worse they get.

It's not just in football tho. It's society in general, if couples are going through a bad patch it's divorce half the time. No-one seems to have patience for anything these days, so it's not surprising me the knee jerk reactions to players having a bad spell.

Agree totally with the post as I feel at times some people think that we can buy the 10iar. which made melook at our team that stopped the rangers from reaching ten.
Jonathan Gould 50,000 from Bradford
Marc Rieper Frr from West Ham
Tom Boyd 1,13 million from Chelsea
Enrico Annoni undisclosed from AS Roma
Alan Stubbs 4,7 million from Bolton
Jackie Mc Namara 900,000 from Dunfermline
Craig Burley undisclosed from Chelsea
Paul Lambert 2,9 million from Dortmund
Phil O'Donnell 2,65 million from Motherwell
Henrik Larrson 650,000 from Feyenoors
Simon Donnelly Free from Cosmos Canberra
I wonder how many of them would be considered good enough to play for Celtic today by our fans and yet they made history.

Cracks me up the criticism of players there’s a guy by me spends more time criticising than watching (gets told every week to wrap it but never stops)
Donjom I’d say half today’s team would struggle to get in the one you’ve named.

11 Mar 2019 11:56:03
Half the team? Most of the players that stopped the 10 would walk in our 1st team.
Plenty players fae that squad not mentioned there.
Only about 5 of our squad would get in the stop the 10 squad.
Brown Tierney sinky Bain Forrest and I don't think any of them would be guaranteed a start.

11 Mar 2019 13:56:26
I’d say only Bain would be a 1st choice out of those but that only on current form. Loved rieper some player.

11 Mar 2019 15:46:59
Don't know about Bain because gould was fantastic that season.
Reiper was one of the best CBs I've ever seen at parkhead. So unlucky with injury.
Oneil would have loved him.

Agree with both of you that it was some team and would probably beat the present team even though they didn't have invincible year or trble trebles etc but also to point that it didn't cost megabuccks to assemle (I don't even want to try and imagine what those players would be worth in todays market) . The rangers team thaat season wason paper I believe better than us and certainly cost a lot more as after winning 9 in a row thay spent another 14.5 million to secure the ten. Even with Laudrup, Gattuso, Amoruso, Moore etc they couldn't do it. I don't think either us or them will get this close again and we don't need to spend megabucks but we need a united team willing to give everything to achieve it and than means players and fans united and not fans constantly blasting the players.

Anyone who thinks that success can be bought by spending money should check Everton's "success" from the money spent in the last two summer transfer windows and study their lack of improvement .

The cold wind inside Celtic Park was blamed on some of the players as some of the freezing crowd tried to keep themselves warm by hurling abuse at players.

11 Mar 2019 20:24:34
Kev I thought young Henderson was the pick of our midfielders and was a bit confused as to why he was taken off at halftime.

11 Mar 2019 20:25:37
We wouldn't be able to buy most of that team these days a guy like Stubbs would go for 20 million plus.
Larsson wouldn't come to Celtic if it was now and neither would Lambert, straight from winning the champions league.

11 Mar 2019 20:07:23
Old man Chris if you think success can't buy success maybe you should study Manchester city and Chelsea.

12 Mar 2019 19:54:31
How many European Cups have Manchester City won?
How well have Chelsea done this past few seasons?
What about the Everton I mentioned?
Many of our fans would wet themselves with excitement if we matched Everton's spending . Many would be expecting European success, we have won double back to back trebles with spending very little and so Everton type spending would have to bring European success or it would be wasted money.

Stepbhoy2 it's hardly fans of the couple shouting abuse at them that causes couple to divorce 😊😇.
