Correct Score Competition Entry

Broonies passing today at times was on a different level. our captain was a commanding leader in the middle and controlled the game. Well done Scott Brown, Great Captain and servant to Celtic FC.

Bossed it never broke sweat holliday and wee hyndman were bouncing off him HH.

Ha ha what a profitable day I had, won my Sinclair to score, a penalty and Sevco most bookings bets, was unlucky with my Rogic to score bet but to cap it all won £400 from bigot in a suit in an extra bet we made yesterday. Then had a cheeky £20 at 10/ 1 on Arsenal in extra time, so you see before you one happy TIM.

As to the game itself it was so one sided, the only danger Celtic had all day came from OURSELVES. First the negatives, why did it take fully 5 minutes to get Griffiths on, a decent team other than Sevco would have punished us. I like Lustig but sadly he must be replaced at right back and don't get me started on Boyata, all their attacks in the second half were caused by his carelessness and laziness.
Now to the positives, Brown played a captain's role, Roberts was immense, and brave, he kept getting hacked down but just kept running at them. Even McGregor impressed me today and I am not his biggest fan. Gordon made some good saves at the right times. We were so far ahead of them it must have been embarrassing for the Sevco fans to watch.
If I was Rodgers I would play entire U19 team next week just to show how little we rate them. hail hail.

That was without doubt the poorest oppenents we have played this year no drive no skill no teamwork no problem.

Agree4 Disagree0

23 Apr 2017 17:36:38
It was an easy game, we played it as a simple
Training match as we should of done all seasons.

23 Apr 2017 17:43:29
Talk before the game was 'What Celtic team would turn up' however, Celtic were the only team that turned up.

23 Apr 2017 17:19:27
Glasgows green n white.

Well done Celtic a very easy game.
That's some manager sevco have got, to watch Scott Brown dominate and stroll thro the 90 without doing anything about it lol.
Regarding Halliday challenge I thought it was a yellow, very similar to Browns last week where they both went in to take the other guy out no damage done its a yellow.
MOTM for me was Craig Gordon, to spend 80 odd mins bored to tears takes a lot of ability and he coped admirably.
It seems to me the sevco manager is as daft as his fans, they win a couple against mediocre teams and they come into this game full of confidence thinkin they can win against top quality opposition.
Well reality has hit big time and I think we wernt even out of 2nd gear.

Their best chance of a win today was the half-time "Dizzy Penalties" competition, but they blew that as well!

23 Apr 2017 17:24:00
cant agree rayman hallidays was def red . the young right back should have had 2 yellows . browns challenge last week was for me like taverniers on griff for penalty yellow ( bit late in timing ) but never red.

23 Apr 2017 17:41:32
Still paranoid enough to believe the colour of the cards is determined by the colour of the strips - and nothing today or last week has prompted me to change that view.

23 Apr 2017 17:56:17
browns was a red. hallidays was a red. both shockers. not place in the game for tackles like that anymore

will be good now over the next few weeks to see kouassi get a game and also good that griff is going to get game time.

23 Apr 2017 18:17:18
We will Gub them next week the Gap is enormous.

23 Apr 2017 18:18:28
Scott Brown was the best player on the park today by the length of an Airdrie Walk. His best season in a Celtic jersey under Rodgers.

24 Apr 2017 00:45:06
Hallidays was a definite red no surprises from that guy. Beerman should've had a 2nd yellow too and isn't Tavernier last man? Remember Boyatas red card I think was against Hamilton. And the guy was offside for that too and Boyata got the ball, still the appeal was thrown out. Sick of hearing that we get all the decisions and when we don't it is a conspiracy from other clubs fans. These decisions couldn't be any more blatant.

23 Apr 2017 14:36:50
Thought Patrick Roberts was outstanding today. magnificent Hail Hail.

Agree8 Disagree0

23 Apr 2017 16:40:23
Just need the thoughts to match the deeds n for the lad to see his future is with us.

23 Apr 2017 14:18:32
Sevco are miles behind, they have no quality! Brendan said the first half was like a masterclass. I agree!

Agree7 Disagree1

Oh UJ, where are you? If you're at the bar I'll have a treble! 😂👍☘️.

23 Apr 2017 18:15:32
you won't see UJ for dust. I have some humble pie for him
4 to go till 10 in a row HH.

23 Apr 2017 22:56:55
He will be back, as the song goes win, lose or draw.

{Ed007's Note - As the song goes,

Where are the clowns?
Send in the clowns.......

But where are the clowns?
Quick, send in the clowns.....

And where are the clowns?
There ought to be clowns.
Well, maybe next year.........

23 Apr 2017 14:16:55
McGregor gets a tough time from some quarters but think he plays the role well and what a finish.

Bang on to start him before Rogic having only just come back from injury.

Well done Callum, keep it up son - having a very solid season.

Agree11 Disagree1

23 Apr 2017 14:56:51
Well played passing was great motm for me.

23 Apr 2017 14:49:39
He's a excellent little player Craigie he does get stick from some quarters but he's tidy and hard working Brown was absolutely outstanding today. Have a great safe day.

23 Apr 2017 15:24:49
I agree. I like McGregor because he keeps the ball moving at a pace that suits our style. He's not a standout player but i can see what he brings to the squad. I think he'll stay this summer!

{Ed007's Note - I hope he stays and with 2 years left on his current deal I'd be looking to get him tied down for longer. Replacing McGregor, even for someone at the same level, would cost us millions and a lot more in wages than he's on too.}

23 Apr 2017 14:14:47
Great result against a team full of hatchet men and clubbers. Collumn is a joke as an official. We could have destroyed them today if we hadn't eased off and again, gave them that hope at the end. Quite happy though that we didn't stoop to their level and try breaking legs. Next week will be a totally different game. No pressure for us and all of it heaped onto them in front of 40,000 knuckledraggers baying for blood. If we play like today we should stroll it at the Asbestos Dome. MTH!

{Ed007's Note - I didn't think the ref done too badly and surely he's helped Brown's appeal by giving us two examples of worse tackles that only received a yellow?
Today I felt after McGregor's goal that if TRIFC had scored we had another couple of gears to move up, we comfortably controlled the majority of the game with ease and should now go into next week's game full of confidence, if that's all they have to offer we should be in no danger at Ibrox.}

Agree6 Disagree0

23 Apr 2017 14:55:07
I thought Collum had a good game. I missed the first few minutes but from the replays Halliday should've been off no question but from then on he called the penalty perfectly and rightly discarded Miller's handball shouts. Thought he did well so credit where it's due.

23 Apr 2017 15:12:57
Aye thought the ref was good too, that's all we ask for hh.

23 Apr 2017 15:10:26
I agree Ed can only help the appeal and I really do think that the Ref had a decent game nothing to do with the result he was OK.

{Ed007's Note - I've always thought Collum more incompetent than bias. He let the game flow quite well today and didn't look to make himself the centre of attention like many refs do these days.}

23 Apr 2017 15:33:38
Expected worse to be honest but he did bottle a red card decision or two and failed to protect Roberts and Tierney from various assaults.

23 Apr 2017 18:16:32
Got to agree ed. Collums not bias just poor sometimes.
Today i thought he done well.

23 Apr 2017 13:22:24
Why did Tavernier not get a red card for the tackle on Griffiths? Last man surely?

Agree4 Disagree3

23 Apr 2017 13:25:20
I would have thought so but I've heard the phone line was down to the lodge and the ref couldn't get the decision.

23 Apr 2017 13:58:57
The rules have been changed, only red if last man fouls outside of the box, inside a penalty and yellow card.

23 Apr 2017 14:11:52
Did the rules change just for this game ha ha.

23 Apr 2017 15:12:42
I think it was because he was not running directly at goal even though he was in the penalty box but I could be wrong about that rule.
