Collins and big John are a good double act, you could feel big John's nerves he was shi#tting it along with us.

Who is the youngster Starfelt or Welsh

We all know we paid 5M for Starfelt, but we are running out of excuses for him. He is a bombscare, another 5M down the drain. He is certainly not the answer to our problems at the back.

Hail Hail

Give the guy a chance ralston was getting called. A bomb scare a few weeks ago mate let him settle.

{Ed007's Note - 👍👍 You wonder what people made of Larsson or VVD when they first signed? The guys hardly in the door and even though he's made a few blunders he's done other stuff well yet we've got posts about how "we are running out of excuses for him" - nobody's making excuses, it's called giving players a chance to settle before coming out with OTT knee jerk reactions.}

Starfelt is a good player. A few hairy moments tonight but overall he played well.

Some fans really are a fickle bunch.

18 Aug 2021 22:08:07
Unbelievable guys been written off within a month yeah has been shaky but how many cbs got the ground running it’s a technical position you grow into you don’t just Chuck in a shirt and suddenly know your team and understand the way it’s playing.

He needs time but eventually his poor defending is going to cost us couple howlers in first half and young Welsh who was immense bailed him out in 2nd half, but I think there is a player In there just needs to get his confidence up.

Defence is probably the hardest place to settle on the park your under the cosh from the off let him get to know his team mates there's strengths weaknesses the big man will be fine on another note kyogos finish was sublime the wee man does have it all creator and finisher superb.

Let's be fairly honest. Ralston was off to east Fife in most eyes a month ago. Give starfelt a chance and he'll come on fine.

18 Aug 2021 22:20:36
We probably just played the best game in Europe we have for a couple seasons and someone still finds a reason to find something to complain about 🤣🤣🤷🏻‍♂️🤦🏻‍♂️.

You hit the nail on the head with your comment Ed. The guys has made a few blunders. But when you pay 5M for a centre half you should NOT be getting blunders.

If that was in a normal mans workplace, it would not be acceptable, but just because he plays for Celtic it is acceptable. Not for me, I have higher standards than that.

Hail Hail

{Ed007's Note - We kept a clean sheet but if you need to find something to moan about batter in.}

Starfelt had a couple of dodgy moments in the first half but was pretty solid after that. What a difference a season makes. We defended set pieces well on the whole and Bain or Barkas in goal and they go 1-0 up bit save that was from Hart which set us up for dominating the first half after that.

18 Aug 2021 23:46:57
Ed, It’s not a case of having something to moan about. It is factual. He has not had the best start to his Celtic career.

How many people on here have been slagging of Christie? you included Ed. But when I genuinely criticise Starfelt people don’t like it.

I really hope that he has a good game at Ibrox in a couple of weeks time. Because, if he doesn’t there will be lot of people on here slagging him.

Hail Hail

{Ed007's Note - I've given Christie it tight for his attitude and application last season, the same guy that had to go out on loan to prove he was good enough to step up, you're focusing on the negatives of a player and going on about making excuses for him after a handful of games. I've said it for years that there's a large section of the Celtic support that buy into the theory that a player will he solely judged on his last touch of the ball, it's one of the main reasons that's held back our youths progression. Just because he hasn't settled as well as some other signings the negativity towards Star felt is unwarranted. As I said earlier tonight, people will have a moan about Taylor or Starfelt even though it was a fantastic team performance and result - some people need to find a negative in anything.}

This has been interesting to read the various opinions. I tend to agree with Ed here as in general I find it hard to criticise players unless I frrl they have downed tools and don't want to play for us and I don't think we can say that about Starfelt, at least not yet.
Neither do I think he should be better because of the money that has been spent to sign him. Sometimes you can get a steal like we did with Larsson, Moravcik etc but sometimes things don't work out. Who can honestly say what the true worth of a player is - I suppose he is worth what someone is willing to pay for him. So whilst I may not think Neymar is worth £200m obviously PSG did. Prices are exaggerated if you ask me so with a £5m player we cannot expect another Van Dijk.
After the fiasco of last season and the departure of Frimpong etc I was not looking forward to this season and although I know its early days I think we are in for a great season this year.
ALL SAID AND DONE I think the best thing to happen this summer was that after months of chasing etc Howe refused to sign for us Surey that piece of luck must be a sign of good things to come.
