That was as good of a team performance than I have seen for a while. Celtic were clinical and strong against an aggressive Inverness team who showed their intentions early on with some heavy tackles. Vigurs should have been red carded and suspended for his horrible tackle on Sinky. If Sinky's leg was planted that could have been a break, it was a shocker. The referee again was poor. I don't think our referees deliberately go out to give bad decisions against us, they are just crap.
Although Biton had a reasonably good game, I still think he doesn't read it as good as he should. He seems slow to pass the ball when the runs are on from the wingers. That said, if that is my only criticism then I'm nit picking. Dembele and Sinky were immense again today and wee James Forrest had a good game on the wing. Gordon's play at his feet is getting better and better but complacancy will catch him out one day. Broonie, again, solid! All in all, a very good day at the office against a team that were never going to bother us much. Here's to another home draw tomorrow!

So the word must be out, come to paradise, park the team bus, get a goal scored against you and then decide to play a wee bit of football. Throw in some dicey officials and it's just another night in the SPFL. Boring and predictable from visiting teams, stifling our free flowing play. It's actually a bit disgusting if you had been a StJ fan paying all that money to watch that garbage from their team. On the plus side, we march on unbeaten and are about to break records! Roll on Hearts, at least they try so it should be a better game than that guff we seen tonight from yet another visiting team too scared to play football.

Couldn't agree more, thought St. Johnstone were pathetic tonight. But I didn't expect anything less to be honest! HH.

better quality shooting…shot accuracy and we will still win by 3 4 5 …but we need our shooting boots on

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.

2.) 14 Dec 2016 11:34:10
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.

7.) 15 Dec 2016 08:06:14
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.

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.

Vigurs last week, Bowman today, what will it take before our referees man up and start doing their jobs properly? Broken leg? End of career? Our refs are a joke!
This just gives every hatchet man in the league permission to cause a serious injury to one of our players. The refs cannot bear to send off a player from a visiting side in case they are accused of bias by the establishment. As I said, an absolute joke!

Fair point Kev, tempers get frayed at football but McGhee shows a very immature, petulant side to his character. He's been in football long enough to be able to deal with abuse from fans. The guy is a nugget.

Nice one Tim!

I was talking to a couple of Sevco fans in the pub the other night.

"Do you often go to Ibrox for the game? " I asked.

"Yeah, of course! " they said. "We've found the perfect way. Ten minutes after kick-off we sneak through a side gate! "

"Not bad! " I replied.

"Yeah, but last week we were caught and had to sit down and watch the rest of the game. "

Spot on Kev, our squad seems like it's as tight as a drum. BR is doing wonders to keep a large squad motivated. What struck me watching the replay was the fact we are playing fantastic football through very hard work. Our bhoys are as fit as butchers dogs and look like they could run all day. This is the big difference between us and the other teams.

Everything about Celtic at the moment is bang on. Our team is playing great football, our finances are triple A and the whole set up of our club is morally good. We should be very proud of what our club has achieved. We were very close to going out of existence but we were salvaged by a guy with a very focused business plan to save our club. We didn't go into administration, we were never liquidated and our history was never in doubt. The same cannot be said for the sham act across the City who are now reaping the crops they sowed years ago. We are Celtic! MTH!

Good win yesterday. Dembeles 3rd goal was sublime! What a joy to watch a team gelling like ours does. First half was a bit huff puff against a very good team. I'm surprised St Johnstone are not further up the table than they are. Tommy Wright is doing wonders with that squad and they always try against us up in Perth. Eventually though, class outshone them. We would have beaten them even without Thompsons dodgy decision but hey, how many of these decisions have not gone our way so I'll take that. Dembele hasn't harmed his price tag after yesterdays performance, what a special player we have in him.
I would like to think BR has taken our defensive performance back to the training ground. Apart from that though, another great day to be a Tim!


{Ed007's Note - At least St Johnstone came out and had a go, I remember at one point there was 3 St Johnstone players chasing down our 2 CBs or 1 CB and Bitton.
And once again our wee diddy league game put the so called Best League in the World's offering to shame - that Leicester v Man Utd was utter garbage.}
