No Sunday Pint with the suit today Tim.

Agree3 Disagree1

22 Oct 2017 18:40:08
@Campsie Bhoy he was otherwise engaged today, and I doubt he will come near any pub I am in for a while, maybe 2030 lol.

22 Oct 2017 20:33:43
Here’s hoping mate let’s pray for Pedro.

22 Oct 2017 17:59:47
Guys grab a beer and the popcorn! Their page is in meltdown! Last week's world beaters are this week's empty jerseys 🤣🤣🤣 king and Pedro must stay.

Agree6 Disagree0

22 Oct 2017 18:19:17
I just had a peek and I must say it is very enjoyable to say the least 😂.

22 Oct 2017 18:20:28
I've got a bet with a klan supporting mate that Pedro will not win three games on the bounce. I actually feared losing that today. Step forward the mighty (as far as Rangers are concerned) Motherwell. The bad news is we get an alright side in the draw.

22 Oct 2017 19:19:27
so apart from 1) the ref to blame.

"unfortunately I think 2) the media don’t like him and see him as an easy target since day one. 3) Scottish Football is not welcoming to foreigners, is not receptive to forward thinking and better ideas/ footballing philosophies, and that is why scottish football is falling behind the rest of Europe (including Luxemburg) . "

And I'm singing - Your Shoite and You Know you are deluded cos you think you aren't Shoite.

22 Oct 2017 20:10:36
The general op on there deluded pages is that motherwell kicked them off the park no mention of alves kick on moult or moult getting elbowed and requiring clips but they're hurting bhoys si should we go easy on them.

22 Oct 2017 16:33:01
I'd have Louis Moult as our 3rd choice forward any day of the week, that guy can score goals for fun! Dembele and Griff for Europe aswell as moult as back for cup and league duties would definitely strengthen our squad. HH.

Agree8 Disagree1

22 Oct 2017 17:02:33
I don’t see Moult coming to us to get a few domestic games. But would take him no problem if he would come.

22 Oct 2017 17:38:17
Said the same Michael. only doubts are that we said the same about guys like Riordan GMS even Hayes to a degree . look the business until they step up a grade. But I like moult.

22 Oct 2017 17:58:39
Nadir Ciftci.

22 Oct 2017 18:16:53
Louis Moult is 10x the player Ciftci will ever be, I'm not saying Moult is a world beater but as 3rd choice it's a no brainier. His scoring record for Motherwell is like Scott McDonald and he done not bad at us from what I can remember. HH.

22 Oct 2017 18:56:56
You say Hayes gms and ciftci.
I will say McDonald Robson and Hartley.
We never know if these guys will handle the step up till we give them the chance.
But I try to judge players on how they perform against us and moult has been a pain in the arse most games and scored goals.

22 Oct 2017 19:01:53
you need 11 cifcis to find a dembele

our 11 cifcis were

1) mo bangura
2) amido balde
3) pukki
4) scepovic
5) dion Dublin
6) murphy (pre Ipswich)
7) chris killen
8) Lassad
9) boerickter
10) Micu

and 11) cifci.

22 Oct 2017 19:26:16
How Nadir Ciftci was bought i will never no but that summed up what happened at the club during the Delia era (i doubt RD even wanted him) . Moult averages a goal every 2 games for Motherwell which is even better than Scott McDonald before he signed for us. No top earning forward in a so called big league will come up to Scotland to play 2nd fiddle never mind 3rd! We have Our top pairing but imo we need a 3rd to take the workload off Dembele and Griffiths. What a weekend off football, work will be a joy on Monday 😂😏. HH.

22 Oct 2017 19:37:45
Dion Dublin wasn't a bad signing to be honest. He played more games as a CB than a striker for us and scored a winning goal in a cup final.

22 Oct 2017 20:16:39
I knew there would be one of get wrong.

Ok fortune. no wait he scored in a cup final.


23 Oct 2017 11:27:56
Kazim Richards lol.

23 Oct 2017 11:28:25
And big Carlton Cole! (wtf was that all about)

22 Oct 2017 15:23:57
Watching tbe monkeys my god its poor our game was like the el classico next to this dross.

Agree4 Disagree0

22 Oct 2017 16:24:38
at least the cheats are getting umped. taxi for meester pedro.

22 Oct 2017 16:36:34
Never watched an Oldco or a Sevco game unless we are involved but my cousin just txt do me to check the score and what a surprise - Bruno Alves gets away with GBH and honest mistake merchant sees and does nothing - oh and Motherwell won 2-0.

22 Oct 2017 16:42:38
Cracking finish for the second though.

22 Oct 2017 17:14:44
Have said it before on here but would love Louis moult in the hoops. Score goals for fun. Plus seems fit as a fiddle and run and bosses a lot of defenses all day. Must better that our third choice striker l have to say. Have a feeling the huns will go for him in January.

22 Oct 2017 19:02:22
Can't see rangers signing him. They inquired in the summer and Motherwell told them they want the whole fee upfront. That's why they went abroad. They teams let them pay the fees in instalments.

22 Oct 2017 19:03:08
that's not the funniest part, reading the dark web - blaming the ref.

22 Oct 2017 19:25:13
Dreadful game of football in terms of quality, but a fantastic (if none too surprising! ) result.
The refereeing, AGAIN, was appalling.
But despite that, happy days!
Can't wait to hear from Pedro.!

22 Oct 2017 13:26:44
I've noticed over the last couple of weeks that Ntcham has been getting a bit of a doing on here.
The guy is only 21 years of age and is settling into life at Celtic. He needs our support and at the Dundee game I felt the fans where really getting on his back. Remember at the start of last season some fans where saying Dembele won't cut it, well low and behold he's done not too bad!
I believe Ntcham will come good, you don't get in the French Under 21 Team if you're a bad player. So come on guys keep the faith and in Brendan we trust🍀🍀.

Agree6 Disagree0

22 Oct 2017 15:20:00
My view of Ntcham is that he has been told by BR that he is the forward thinking midfielder, when you get the ball try to play it forward - which is trickier to complete a pass forward - where as Broony will be told to be the defensive minded midfielder.

when it comes off, first goal v anderleicht its amazing, but more often than not it could look as tho his pass completion rate is low.

I think he's a good player overall and will only improve,

22 Oct 2017 11:31:15
No Sunday pint today, the suit and my ex bear pals are going to a wee diddy game of nonentities today.
Mrs T going out with her two friends for lunch and girls out and about so plan to have a television fiesta watching Ipswich-Norwich, then Feyernord-Ajax and to round it off in afternoon Tottenham-Liverpool.
Planning some nice football bets also
Ipswich 2/ 1, Ajax 7/ 5 and Tottenham 6/ 5 if all 3 come in will give me over £120 for my tenner.
In sevco game a penalty 2/ 1, sevco penalty 3/ 1 ( almost guranteed) ordering off 9/ 4 (again if sevco are struggling GUARANTEED, ) Moult of Motherwell anytine goal 9/ 4.
I think game will go to extra time so I have taken either team extra time 7/ 1, either team oenalties 9/ 1.

Agree1 Disagree5

22 Oct 2017 16:44:27
Might be a while tim before you see the suit and your ex bear pals me thinks.

22 Oct 2017 16:48:51
Sorry you couldn't have your Sunday pint today Timalloy but you can console yourself thinking how much better next weeks will taste after today.

22 Oct 2017 18:29:11
Don’t you have any Celtic supporting pals.

21 Oct 2017 23:14:20
Delighted with the result today, was a bit worried about this one but as we've being doing now for the last 18 months we get the result. Astonishing we've now gone 60 games unbeaten with only around 6 draws. If we get a result on Wednesday I can see us going undefeated again this season which surely has never been done before anywhere. With the Mousse lòoking like he's about to hit top form again the double treble is on 😁😁.

Agree4 Disagree1

21 Oct 2017 18:42:38
A decent display today from Celtic who had some tired looking players out there so I am not going to complain about the quality of passing from some of our players, we got the victory DESPITE the usual "honest mistake", DESPITE the "impartial" computer guy scheduling our league cup semi a full 24 hours earlier, but said "impartial" computer guy must now be beeling as Celtic now have at least ONE extra day to rest and recover before another tough away game on Wednesday, sadly "impartial" computer guy could only give Aberdeen TEN DAYS rest.

Agree5 Disagree2

21 Oct 2017 20:25:24
we're not talking about biton at cb so must have done okay today.

and lustig scoring - twice!

Looked like a good game "for the neutrals"

Need to be a bit tighter on Wednesday I recon.

With spl teams getting £375k just for being in the same league as us, I recon they should let us pick our own fixtures - for the good of the game.

21 Oct 2017 21:28:28
Bitton was a fault for there 2nd goal, should have stepped up and played offside and he didn't even notice the boy. but again this what happens when u play a centre midfielder at centre half! There can't be many teams who constantly chop and change so many positions! We need a settled team asap! But on the other hand it's massive credit to the players that they still keep winning and always finding away to get the job done! Would just love to see a settled team, especially the back 4! On a side note did anyone hear the clown that is kris Boyd questioning big jozos bottle going into big games! Said he's scared to get shown up if he's less than 100% fit! He can only play against Dundee and the like! And here's me thinking I was positive I watched the big man stroll through the anderlecht game and played with the pipe in and slippers on at the crumble dome! This was the same kris Boyd who's own mangers couldn't trust him going into big games because his arse collapsed every time! How this bellend gets a platform to spout Shoite from I'll never know!

21 Oct 2017 22:38:44
Well said lh he's a knobhead. he played against psg as well he must have been struggling for a story this week.

22 Oct 2017 00:12:42
Mally the guys a half wit! It's the fact what he spouts is total lies! He said he can only play against Dundee but he wasn't in the team for the recent game against them, then he said he can't play in the big games but he strolled it in anderlecht and like u said played against psg! And I know It's not exactly a tough game but he strolled it over at the asbestos dome! It's total nonsense with not even an attempt at dealing in facts!

22 Oct 2017 01:11:56
The great thing about this current Celtic team is that it has now won 60 domestic games in a row despite having a manager that some of our fans thinks doesn't know the basics of team selection . Surely someone should tell B R that u can't pick a midfield player and play him as centre back and also Brendan you must not change personnel from game to game .
I know B R is a quick learner and is always studying the best managers to see how he can improve but maybe that is where he is going wrong, he should read the posts here and he would within months have Celtic invincible . Sorry I forgot B R has already had us invincible .
Maybe he does know what he is doing.

22 Oct 2017 01:04:33
Ha ha that porky roller could only score against the likes of Alloa and Forres Mechanics, always struggled against the big teams like us.

22 Oct 2017 08:37:49
Spot on Lh - Boyd is a total bell.

On a different note, I cannot believe that Griffiths is getting stick for his performance from some Celtic fans - give the man a break - he's been outstanding for us!

Delighted with the result. Really hoping Motherwell stuff them tomorrow.

22 Oct 2017 11:30:58
Yet again, dirty cheating officials do all they can to derail us. They know their beloved sevco have no chance against us in the final, if that pile of shite team even make it.

I hope Well do them obviously, preventing them making any more money.

Job done yesterday and now we can look forward to parting the Sheep's baws on Wednesday.

If Sevco make the final we will be swamped with honest mistakes galore. Cheating is in their DNA and they don't even mind winning by cheating.

Part of me wants them to make the final so we can smash them into a red white and blue jam.

22 Oct 2017 12:11:11
Sorry, (OP) I hate to hear the "tired after a hard midweek game. " C'mon, these are professonal footballers and that is their only job. They are well looked after and well paid for what they do.
Try doing manual labouring (rigs was mine) 12 hour shifts where sometimes it's basically non-stop THEN tell me that is a tired person.
I won't labour the point as I have made my feelings known on here many times in the past but Tired wee things. naw.

{Ed007's Note - To be fair using terms like "tired after a hard midweek game" etc doesn't mean the players are knackered and a nice wee lie-in spooning the wife's big hot ass will sort them out. It's more to do with things like mental tiredness and muscle fatigue and the body needing to replenish levels of fluids etc and is all worked out by the sports science department to help keeping players at their individual peak as much as possible between games. Players who's bodies need longer to recover are more prone to niggling injuries if they play when they aren't pushing their peak conditioning.
The reason we never heard about stuff like players being tired etc in the 80s and 90s is because sports science was still in it's infancy.
There'll be a reason LG tucked into a tea cake on the bench, probably to get his sugar levels back up as quickly as possible, other players eat things like bananas to get their potassium levels back up and most players get as much fluids into them as possible during matches, it's all to do with sports science and keeping players at their peak both physically and mentally. Your brain slows down if you are dehydrated, hence the constant intake of fluid during games.
So the next time you read that players are tired, just forget that and read it as the players are facing a heavy schedule and need to push themselves that wee bit harder to remain in tip top condition because there isn't enough time to do any gentler conditioning training (or proper coaching)with the games are coming thick and fast.
The players will be off today, in tomorrow for some light training, Tuesday will be working on the Aberdeen game and Wednesday it's light training if any before heading to Pittodrie, compare that schedule to what would happen if we had a week off between the games, we'd be arriving at Pittodrie near enough at our peak fitness and conditioning wise.}

22 Oct 2017 12:36:06
It was an all too familiar and predictable 'honest mistake' that unfortunately has cheated and penalised Celtic in a good few Hamden semi finals. Previous teams have lost out to these incidents but under BR and the current talent at his disposal - we can handle the twelfth man nowadays.

23 Oct 2017 01:33:23
I don't see any more reason for criticising C G for making a mistake that eventually led to a goal that others could have prevented .
Dembele missed a relatively easy chance on Sat to score and I am not going to blame him or call for him to be dropped .
We have. Humans playing for us and the team as a whole are not among the best in the world . I am quite happy that most of the time they all do a fairly evenly matched decent job for us that has got us 60 domestic wins in a row . This achievement is not easy to wi and all the players &ateam management deserve great credit and praise from good fans.

21 Oct 2017 18:15:08
Had a wee pop at Gamboa and Ntcham midweek and feel kinda bad about that it's not really the Faithfull through and through celtic ethos . but I must say big Craig Gordon's jacket must be on a shortly peg. Now I I believe he is a fantastic shot stopper but a tad vulnerable at Cross balls. Also the modern goalie has to be almost Franco Baresi like which the big man isn't. Goalies are employed to save the ball with there hands but his place must be in jeopardy. any thoughts boys.

Agree3 Disagree2

21 Oct 2017 19:28:43
Pat nothing to feel bad about you called it right imo both were poor and gamboa i don't think is celtic class.

21 Oct 2017 21:36:47
Mally : Got to say in Gamboa I don’t think he is up to our standard, got to move him on and fill it.

21 Oct 2017 22:39:46
If young ralston could stay fit he might be the answer pete.

22 Oct 2017 01:22:49
I doubt very much if C G is on a shortly peg, even though I don't know what you mean by shortly peg .
CG is doing a very good job at saving shots which is his number one priority. We don't know what his role is for crosses, the goal keeping coach may prefer the crosses from set pieces to be dealt with by defenders, or maybe by Gordon we just don't know .
His clearances have improved somewhat from the start of last season, but opponents can pressurise high up the park and make things v difficult for the keeper .
If Dembele has a wee run in the team, he will give Gordon a better target further up field and so maybe he can mix it up playing short or going long .
I noticed the brilliant Manchester Utd didn't handle a long ball from opposing keeper today.

22 Oct 2017 02:07:20
Chris he cost us a goal on wed night and against hibs he gave the ball away by miskicking 3 or 4 times better teams would have punished us. regardless whether we have a big centre or not if a pass ain't on he should be clearing his lines a can imagine O'Neil putting up with the mistakes he's making with the ball at his feet.

22 Oct 2017 09:16:58
Lol. shortly peg . predictive text Old man Chris . should have read shoogly ( shakey ) . keepers passing about the back terrifies me. Gone are the days when your Packie Bonnars would score Scottish cup goals at Berwick with a good old fashioned hump up the park.

22 Oct 2017 12:43:34
If shot stopping was his only job he'd be safe, however his distribution and erratic kicking is causing us problems and how many times do we see him standing static at corners watching balls roll past him because his positioning, organising and reactions are not good enough?
He has also been partial to rushes of blood and charging into forwards and mistiming challenges. Apart from that he's OK.

{Ed007's Note - I've reeled in my criticism of Gordon this year simply because there's nothing more to say and no point arguing the same points over and over again. Craig Gordon is a great shot stopper but he's a poor 'keeper in the modern sense of the game where the 'keeper has a lot more to do.
He's too good to be a No.2 at Celtic but he's good enough to be a No.1 at another SPFL club or even an English Championship one but I don't think his wife would fancy that.}

22 Oct 2017 13:58:12
what about his bird ed :)

{Ed007's Note - He's still got a young family to think of as well.}

23 Oct 2017 01:43:31
Ok he made a mistake and a goal eventually was scored big deal. LG and P R didn't score or create anything, on either Wednesday night or Saturday, should we drop both of them .
On Saturday's Lustig's man was running 100 yds with the ball Lustig couldn't keep up with him, should we have taken Lustig off or did B R do the right thing and leave Lustig on to score two first half goals.
We play a team game, sometimes a player might be a we bit off his game and his team mates cover up for him and give him a wee hand . Other times players like Gordon pull off a string of saves, covering up for defenders .
Players arn't robots and we are not yet at the standard that our whole team will play well enough to beat the super teams.
