Happy New Year Bhoys, all the best for 2017.

Job done today. Crap pitch, crap weather and a crap referee (again) . Somebody is due a skelping soon, hope it's next week. MTH!

Loving the football being played at the moment. That performance last night reminded me a lot on how German teams play. Fast and direct passing and very energetic up to the last ten minutes. Inevitably, Hamilton decided to throw players forward at the end but we coped well apart from a couple of tired looking relapses. Griffs had a great game and looked to be on his best behavior. Not bad night at the office but 1-0 is always a bit dodgy for the sucker punch.

Are you sure you weren't on the German beer as last night was a poor performance. Yes we could have won by more but it was below par from everyone except Roberts imo. We will have games like that in all seasons but main thing we won and we move on to Saturday and will probably get a better performance from the team.

Last night there were a few off the boil and we made a bit heavy weather against an opponent that came to defend with ten behind the ball - hoping not to get hammered.
It wasn't our usual high standard and the system seemed to stifle Rogic and Armstrong until later in the game and showed why BR rarely plays two up front?
Dembele really needs a wee break and with Tierney, Sinclair and the Forrest coming back, maybe a couple can take a rest before the winter break - when they can all recharge the batteries in preparation for the run-in.

I was on Coors last night Jim! I didn't say it was a brilliant performance but we have most definitely improved under Brendan Rodgers. There looks to me a real team mentality going on. I admit that there was a lot of huff and puff without much of an end product but the passing game Brendan is working on is mostly coming off. We are not the finished product, not by a long way but there are mostly positives about our style of play. If we get some quality in place after January then we should hopefully have the treble winning team in place ready for the CL qualifiers. Good times ahead!

I wasn't too happy with last night's performance . LG, M D, and SA were all too careless in front of goal . The referee was definitely anti Celtic and I thought he deprived us of two penalties . First half I thought Roberts was taken down and in a secondary movement defender got a touch on ball . Near the end L G was dragged to ground and ref wandered up and gave free out . In fact in last 15 mins or so with Celtic only one nil up ref gave numerous frees to Hamilton and tried to not give any to Celtic
The over- all feeling I had after last night's game was fine we won but if we played the same way on the 31st we probably only win by two or three goals.

Ibrox will be intimidating. It will be a tough fixture. They don't lose there Old Bhoy ( 32 and counting I'm told )
They will kick and snarl and rush and get the stadium jumping. This is there cup final and a chance for some long lasting winter cheer
So complacency in that fixture is the enemy as would be a lack of intensity
With a good referee and good discipline and the right mentality we win because we're better BUT Ibrox is nonetheless a challenging venue
I see high kicks and elbows and diving and cheating., for them it will be ANY WAY and ANY HOW and BY ANY MEANS
If they drop points per 31st and lose to CFC I can see a change in bread delivery personnel
BRs popularity on the other hand would go stratospheric with a romp in their backyard.

stuff of champions to play badly and still win.

Champions find ways to win.

"I see high kicks and elbows and diving and cheating., " - Aye and that's just Joe Garner lol.

Them game on the 31st is between a good all round team with good back - up players for most positions . This team Celtic is well coached fit &swell capable of changing tactics . We play a Rangers team, made up of sub standard footballers, signed as out of contract players from lower league teams . Players in their mid to late 30's who in their own minds had retired and always injured unwanted players in late teen& early twenties .
This match should be no contest, but in Scotland nothing is simple and referees have eyes in the back of their heads and complicate things for Celtic . We should win easily but u never know.
10.) 15 Dec 2016 22:44:44
that is what I was getting at Tompo88…. this will be a one way blood fest IMVHO with Rangers deploying hammer throwing tactics in the hope that the crowd will intimidate the ref…. and the ref will turn many many blind eyes …
they can't get close to us on a straight head to head, and so you'll see kick and rush and nips and dives and everything that football shouldn't involve
this is just my view / feeling of why awaits us
but to win there handsomely would be a great statement.

Great performance today from the team. Aberdeen couldn't get near us and I've never seen such a 1 sided final for as long as I can remember. Good to be a tim at the moment. Mon The Hoops!

Just watched the Thistle Aberdeen post match interview with that non person manager the sheep have. What a vile scumbag he really is. The lassie is a post match interviewer, she had the right to ask questions about the performance but he is a nasty, bitter little fud who is lapping up his own hype. He's a definite shoe in for when the breadman chucks it over at Asbestos United.
1.) 05 Nov 2016 12:23:56
…but apart form that you find him impressive?
2.) 05 Nov 2016 12:59:16
Got to agree with big rab! Cannot stand that guy! And hype is all that he will ever be. think it's an absolute cert that he'll manage that mob at some point! Well he's spent the last few years watching the champs canter the league so he knows what to expect when he makes his move! Lol.

You could understand why he's got the hump, he never really did much wrong. BR plays Moussa because he's playing better football at the moment. That said, throwing your toys out the pram at a club like Celtic will never get you back in the team. He has to show his determination in training with his attitude and work rate. Nobody has the divine right to be in our starting eleven.

Spot on Jim Tim. That prospect could be a tantalising lure for other targets normally out of our reach.

You are a great at fishing UJ, I'll give you that! Seriously here is the truth. Sevco are in dire need of funds and would bite the hand of any deal for their players just now. B McKay is not a £6m rated player, that's fact. No player currently in the Sevco squad has a £6m pricetag, no where near it. Your star striker Garner has depreciated now and is not worth the £1.8m you paid for him.
Your club is surviving on handouts just to keep the lights on at the big hoose with more cash by way of a soft loans required by the end of the winter just to survive THIS season! You have next to no chance of playing European Football next season as you fall foul of UEFA fair play rules (interesting to see where THAT goes) but in reality, your team is just nowhere near good enough to qualify. Your club is tied up in court cases and expensive as they are, will be the death nell for your club if they lose in court to big Mike (whose wealth really is off the radar) . Your Stadium is crumbling to dust in front of your very eyes, your supporters still sing banned songs by the thousands at home and away, your Chairman is a convicted tax cheat and narrowly avoided prison. Basically, your club is a mess and shows no signs of recovery.
I stood during your cheating years at Celtic Park and followed my team through the lean times. I watched the club I love nearly go bust and still stood at Celtic Park, freezing and miserable watching us lose to so called diddy teams. It was the darkest time of my life football wise. I then watched as Fergus McCann came in with a business lifeline at the last hour, saved our club from oblivion and with our history intact, challenged Rangers for the first time in years. We built a world class stadium, put the club on a sure financial footing, lived within our means and have become a caring, community based football club that helps charities do the good work for the needy. I am very, very proud of my club for that.
So UJ, the summary is what goes around comes around. How could you and your fellow supporters fail to see the long con Murray was playing? 12 million pounds for one player! Where the hell did you think Moonbeams was getting the cash to pay for the big signings? It was a ponzi scheme at the highest level of business banking and it was financial fraud. Sevco will never be able to emulate the good old days of the old Rangers, no financial institution would ever let it happen. Your mouthpiece PR guru is nothing short of a joke, leaking morsels of crap to the journalist beggars who lap up everything that's thrown to them like rabid dogs. Your team is a million miles behind us and it's getting further by the day.
Mind The Gap.

Haven't bought a paper in years but I work in a large workplace and plenty of guys still buy the S*n and the Daily Rager and leave them lying about. The S*n, I pick up and throw straight in the bin as I can't bear to even look at the racist, xenophobic, anti immigrant, pro-sevco filth and the Record is just a hoot!
Whoever in their right mind would part with any of their hard earned dough for this comic I can't understand. The sports writing is amateurish and fantasist at times and the general stories in the front pages range from the un-interesting to the absolute boring! Save your money and buy some tins of food for the local food bank rather than waste it on the rags that peddle their own agendas.

It's on Sly. 3pm kick off UK time. Loads of Irish pubs in Las Americas. My favourite is the Temple Bar. Great craic!

To go the whole season without any defeat will be very difficult. It's easy to have an off day, look at our first half with Murderwell. If BR hadn't changed the formation we would most probably have lost that game. As the season rolls on and the league is won beyond doubt, BR will tinker with the team and give some of the fringe players a chance to prove themselves. That's when you will probably see our first league defeat, probably away from home.
The Scottish Cup is our next challenge as BR will now be desperate for a treble in his first season but expect some tricky ties.

Sounds like a good gig. I'll be a scout in Rhodes if Celtic need me. Loads of talent round the Fala raki area so I hear!
