There is no doubt the environment we are currently playing in is having a huge effect on the way the season is panning out. TRIFC are thriving in the present climate and fair play to them, while we are struggling badly. Why is this?
IMO its glaringly obvious. Recent history shows that TRIFC have struggled badly when the pressure is on in front of a crowd. Hibs Scottish cup Final, last seasons collapse after the winter break, last seasons League cup final and various Semi Finals over the past few seasons are occasions their bottle has crashed under the expectations of the Klan. On the flip side Celtic have been thriving winning every trophy in front of full houses.
This pressure has been taken away this season and this makes it a totally different ball game. The proof is in the performances of Captain Courageous Tav. This man was made for playing in empty stadiums 🤣🤣
If playing in empty stadiums with no fan pressure continues for the rest of the season (which seems likely) I fear for the title this season.

I know Mikey Johnstone splits opinion on here but I have to say I'm a fan I think he has great potential and I love players that can go by a man there's not many left in the game. with him being out for a long time I was hoping he would do some upper body work and get himself stronger but going by his pictures from his training it doesn't look as though he's took advantage.

Still looks very small
I heard a while ago his attitude and in game intelligence has not improved. let's see how he lands visavis his return.

Lubo I didn't realise his attitude wasn't on point that's something I've not heard before and don't like hearing.

I've watched the build up to their last penalty from yesterday and there's no way the Aberdeen winger is waltzing by Scott Brown if he's not one booking away from a suspension.
Scott getting all those needless bookings has come back to bite us.

26 Oct 2020 08:51:51
Aye Scott Brown getting booked is the reason we're single fish. The problem is Lennon, his woeful signings, his clueless tactics, playing players out of position and sticking with his favourites etc etc etc.

And you forgot

Inability to tackle properly
Inability to win personal battles
Poor in 2nd balls
Few 50 50 battles won

Poor passing

No cohesion

Limited evidence of teamwork from defence to middle to attack . watch rogic and Callum McGregor for inspiration ( but skip past Callum's tackling deficiencies)

We need a lift.

That's true but also further up the park is the same. christies tackling is shocking and some want him playing deeper no thanks.

When we signed Duffy I thought it would add strength for our defence. he's starting to have a "Efe" moment every game now. Big Juliens return can't come quickly enough. Lile game on Thursday will be a watch through the crack of the fingers for 90 minutes. Then the semi final on Sunday which is a must win for Lennon.

Sevco will be 9 points ahead come next Sunday although we will have 2 games in hand. If we win them we will only be 3 points adrift which isn't that bad considering our poor run of form.

I have heard Jullien doesn't want to be here - after a huge fall-out with the manager - preferring to be listed as 'injured'?

Something that's been bugging me all day. It was a clear penalty at the end but I'm pretty sure Collum allowed play to continue. Surely aberdeen got the advantage as cosgrove got a free shot from 8 yards out. The fact he is a donkey and hit the bar doesn't change that. How can you then go back and blow for a penalty? They got their advantage and fluffed it. Does advantage in that instance only count when you score?

No excuses; but, have you ever seen a Celtic match where there wasn't issues involving Gollum?

ref played advantage but pulled it back for original foul penalty goal Rangers for the league, will this be posted?

You have answered yourself, yes it was a penalty but there was no advantage. 🤦‍♂️😂😂🤣🤣🤣.

Since they wrote to the SFA 2 years ago to complain about Wullie,
He was been a referee in 12 Celtic games and only 6 of their games.
In those 12 Celtic games, we have conceded 6 penalties and he has sent off 3 Celtic players.
Celtic have received 2 penalties and the only time he sent off an opponent was when Celtic were leading 5-0.
In the 6 games he’s been referee in their games,
Their opponents have finished with 10 men in 50% of the games.
They have only received one penalty and conceded 2 penalties.
But Why have Celtic got Wullie double the games when he is so unpredictable.

Let be fair buzz all were pens yesterday. And u say that but if that's the case why did he not send off McGregor yesterday so. He was fouling all over the place and gave away the pen in the last min. I hear what u r saying but it was due to shocking defending by us we drew not him. Beside most refs in Scotland are not great.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Oct 2020 08:13:57
Good morning Buzz you will remember they complained about about Collum And he never got one of their games for six months and was he not supposed to be In charge of their game yesterday only to be changed and our original ref for yesterday Nick Walsh went to ibrox.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Oct 2020 08:16:54
Tbh there was a blatant push on Cosgrove right in front of ref in lead up to Griffiths goal, and I felt all 3 penalty decisions were penalties.
Iv said it for a while I genuinely don’t believe the Refs are biased I just think they are not of a good enough standard and should be professional full time referees.
Made to work 40 hour week with 20 hours fitness and 15 hours reviewing their performances and the performances of their peers with 2 matches reffed each week to keep them sharp.

How is a shot from 8 yards not an advantage? Is it only an advantage if you score?

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Oct 2020 08:33:23
No excuses though just interested.

26 Oct 2020 09:04:16
Collum was spot on to pull it back and award the penalty. I think some on here need to learn the rules before posting on here and embarrassing themselves👍.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Oct 2020 09:40:30
I disagree with Lennon blaming Collum yesterday because he had a good game.
But why are we getting Collum In double the games?
In 12 games we have conceded 6 penalties and he’s sent off 3 Celtic players.
To put that into perspective, they have only conceded one penalty in over a year.

Didn't see the game today but any positives? Even the fact the team came back from a goal down twice to lead?

The league has been my main focus this year so Thursday doesn't really matter to me.
Barkas, ajer, Welsh, Duffy, Taylor, soro, laxalt, turnbull, mcgregor, Christie, Griffiths. 4141
Id go with that. Agian its changing up the midfield but ntcham has been anonymous this season, brown probably needed for the weekend and never going to know what turnbull and soro can do if they don't get a game. Christie has been frustrating this year but his energy on the right could be good until forest come back. Gives Griffiths more time to get 'match fit' regardless of scoreline rogic, klimala and ayeti on second half for more minutes for fitness.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Oct 2020 00:59:02
We did play better than we have done recently and done well to come back from being behind twice. NL appeared to be listening to criticism and changed both formation and personnel. Griffiths looking sharp.

So many more negatives though. Lack of chances created in the 1st half. Big players not showing up again - Frimpong, McGregor, Elyounoussi, Rogic and Ajeti. Ntcham being a waste of a shirt as per. Duffy being a donkey yet again. The failure to shut up shop and hold onto the lead.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Oct 2020 02:37:38
Wish he would listedn and stop playing Ntcham lol.

Are other teams improving or are we getting worse, I really thought this was the game we would make a statement and kick on. A point but still feel it’s 2 we have lost 😞.

Agree0 0Disagree

We are def going backwards. Lustig, KT, Moussa, replaced by inferior players.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 Oct 2020 01:00:28
Our standards have dropped however Aberdeen are a decent side though we had a phenomal record of winning the last 8 games there before today.

Agree1 0Disagree

26 Oct 2020 08:17:01
Without doubt we are getting worse game by game. The defending in non existent, the mid field is hit and miss as it up front. We have struggled against side like st mirren which saids it all. As a whole we have been very poor.

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Oct 2020 08:55:09
The obvious fact is that we have not improved enough in the last three seasons. Whether it be a staleness in players here too long, a failure to replace real quality with the same (or better) and other teams slowly improving; learning how to nullify or beat us.
The current situation has been compounded by destructive internal issues going public, bad man-management, fitness issues, with players unable to reach expected standards to last 90 minutes - 4 months into the season; injuries, plus the direct (and indirect) effects of CV on the players and the absence of supporters.
We now have a beleaguered manager, players lacking effort, poor attitudes and team spirit, with rumours (fake news or not) surfacing every day about bust-ups and brawls.
All of the above reflects what we see on the pitch unfortunately.
