As most on here know I place regular bets on any games involving the new club, my bets are a penalty in game, an ordering off or Morelos/ Jack to be booked. I have made money this season from these bets, as it is almost guaranteed one or more of the bets will come in.
But what I am finding, online anyway, is a BIG RELUCTANCE of the bigger bookies to even OFFER these bets Sly is one of the worst offenders. I managed to get my ordering off bet on (at reduced odds) but Sly would NOT offer me bets on penalties or bookings. I guess they have taken a big big hit on these bets.

Absolutely disguisting scenes from the Valencian police talk about heavy handed! Something has to be done about that they are just leathering fans for nothing!

Someone I work with told me the exact same this morning, he has a mate over at the game.

My bhoys over and he says he saw a lot of violence from the Spanish polis hitting people for nothing they've never recovered fae oldco in 72.

{Ed007's Note - I don't know why anyone's surprised, the exact same happened in Vigo years ago when we were over there for the UEFA cup tie.}

@Mally and ED007.
One of Mrs T's old friends married a Spanish policeman and we have visited a few times, his opinion of "British football fans" (all lumped in) is based on dealing with drunken idiots fighting all the time, he told us most Spanish policemen think like this. Even after Seville they are still edgy, they do not understand the difference between fans like ours drinking and singing loudly and hooligans, in his eyes any fan shouting or signing is a potential hooligan so they come down hard.
Let's be honest also, probably one or two of our idiot factions have stepped over the line, as much as we do not want to think of this ugly side.

I feel totally sympathetic towards Steve Clark, what he said was bang on.

The religious biggitory that exists in Scotland in the year 2019 is beyond farcical.
People are living in the bloody dark ages still!

I can still recall being screamed at as being a Fenian Barsteward, having to fun for my skin as my school was wedged between 2 protestant high schools.

One of the reasons I jumped at moving to Australia, so my kids wouldn't have to hear it.

By no way am I saying all our fans are squeeky clean.

Sadly, this is something we're never going to get rid of in my opinion. I live in the East, and wouldn't say for one minute it's as bad as what we see and hear over in the West. But it's there, and it does rear it's ugly head from time to time. I'm ex forces, and can recall being called fenian numerous times during my service. That was early 80s going into the 90s. I've been offshore 20 odd years and can still remember being asked " what fit do you kick wi" by a manager on first meeting. So it's there, and it's everywhere, and it will continue to be there. Where we, as Celtic supporters can help ourselves, is to concentrate on supporting the team, sing the "Celtic" songs, and don't give the media and "peepul" an excuse to question or run us down. Hail hail.

And some of our flock need to look at themselves the sectarian abuse handed out to big fat Kris was just as bad.

Guys are any of you seriously surprised about the ref in the Sevco game. After Stevie Gee said tonight that "the cup was their best chance of silverware" the fix was in.
As usual I made money from the cheating as I bet a bigger wad than usual on an ordering off.

7 athletico players leave the field of play st 2nd goal nearly in the crowd and not a single booking crazy.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Feb 2019 02:28:31
Just seen it Mally, It’s incredible how he got away with that celebration and no booking. It was a German referee and we have a German ref tonight also. So if Brown scores in the last minute to make it 3-1 he should be okay.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2019 11:47:24
They were playing in a different competition. In our domestic football it's a booking. Why moan about It?

If there was ever a perfect example of Scottish referees being inept or favouring a certain team then the two decisions against Kilmarnock tonight are prime examples.

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Feb 2019 20:39:25
Oh they have made absolutely certain there was no chance of Kilmarnock going through - they couldn't have that!

Just saw what killie keeper got sent off for my god it's embarrassing for the ref a disgraceful decision.

Brother Muir doing his bit to release the pressure.
I noticed we have Clancy on sunday.
Surprised since he was the ref when we last played Motherwell.
When he prevented Celtic going 2-0 up due to a phantom foul, which in the end up cost us.
We also have the privilege of a conservative linesman in the off off off mr ross.

20 Feb 2019 21:07:17
I haven’t seen either of the contentious incidents but when you’ve got Gordon Smith saying Kilmarnock should have had a penalty and Neil McCann saying it wasn’t a red card, it doesn’t do much to improve your paranoia.

For the first time in 4 months Collum is pencilled in to help officiate a sevco match.
He will be 4th official in the home midweek fixture. Good way to ease him back in.
Im glad cos it keeps him away from us.
Celtic away to Aberdeen was his 11th league game of the season.
In his previous 10 he never awarded a single penalty, then he gives two against us in the one game. If it wasnt for french Eddie it would have cost us.

Kilmarnock should have had a penalty as well when Worrall fouled in the box near the start of the match.

Just seen both incidents and it's cheating, bias, etc, but no words seem strong enough for the level of it. My partner just asked me why as Celtic fans we even bother watching the games or getting involved when it's clear for all to see, nothing is done about and it's so extreme. I told her it's because it makes beating them even sweeter. But honest to God, those decisions last night are disgusting. A definite penalty and NEVER in a million years a sending off. In fact their player should be banned for cheating. Needless to say it won't happen. I'm almost surprised he didn't give them a penalty for that - Dallas bloody well did!

We have nothing to lose tomorrow night is love to see us just go for it put both Eddie and Burke up top catch them off guard and play More long balls in behind them let the 2 strikers run in behind them all night I know it's not our or Brendan's style but they wouldn't see it coming maybe the tactical tweak we need instead of the same tried and failed European performance.

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Feb 2019 18:34:53
I would go for Burke up front with edouard just off him. Use sinclair and forrest out wide. And mcgregor and brown holding the midfield. The attacking side of the game we have pace, strength and individual ability to get goals.

The game won't be won on attacking alone if we are to naive they will open up our defense. This is were we need to be our strongest. Two goals is possible buy not conceding is the challenge.

I'd love for us to go through but even to put ourselves back in the tie with a bit of pride I'd be happy with.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Feb 2019 18:42:13
What about eddy on the left with Burke in the middle and weah playing the Christie role Forrest on right anno Sinclair being playing well but eddy is decent at going by opponents especially in the box.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2019 14:19:38
I hope big Boyd has recovered enough from his serious arm injury to stick a couple of goals past Foderingham tonight.

hopefully the big lump of wood might deflect a shot by accident into the sevco net, you can only hope haha.

The big fat Sevco apologist shouldn't even be in the squad.

Team for morra? Only two places up for debate LB and striker everyone else speaks for its self for me Hayes and Édouard?

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Feb 2019 14:42:58
Id play 2 up I think, and think I'd go with Edouard and Weah initially (with Christie making weah) . Ping the ball at the corner of the penalty box like Liverpool last night.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2019 15:16:51
I’d go with Burke over Edouard. Burke works harder and actually looks as though he’s interested 🍀.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2019 15:46:33
Ad play hates at lb and I'd have weah playing for Christie who I think has been way off it lately.

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Feb 2019 17:24:17
I wouldn't play Brown.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2019 20:31:39
Thought that initially too Aindoh. If we fancy our chances you're right; but if its a long, defensive night its got to be el capitan.
