10 Feb 2018 09:27:25
God bless you Liam RIP.

young man taken too soon regardless of team or persuasion.

Just read online that the Zenit game has just taken on even more importance.
It seems as things stand we will be unseeded for the final qualifying CL round, assuming we negotiate the other rounds naturally, however even a draw in either leg of the Zenit game will propel Celtic back into the seeded teams.
So at very least we need to draw at Celtic Park next week COYBIG.

Tim this mob from eufa have made it a closed shop it's ridiculous what the smaller nations champions have to endure so early in the season. It won't happen but a would love it if the club's out with the big 4 nations pulled out and let them get on with it.

09 Feb 2018 11:41:31
Well, we really tooled up to give it a go in the window. Didn’t we? To save a few bob we have jeopardised up to £40m.

A draw at least in the home leg should have been the goal. I don’t think we improved the defence at all and with injuries, could be worse than the formation who were found wanting in the cl.

If we fail to get the one draw and lose out on qualification, we will, yet again, have shot ourselves in the head.

We need to refind the form against Hearts, if we do I think we can get the point we need. It will be harder than it should have been, but, we are all used to that by now.

09 Feb 2018 12:45:19
The rule for that game is to keep Kokorin quiet. I’m sure we will take something from them at Celtic park.

09 Feb 2018 15:05:56
A draw at parkhead? Am I the only one who actually fancies a win at home at least? Positive thinking lads n lassies!

09 Feb 2018 16:47:40
Think we will beat them at home too, nothing special, as u say mo we should and could have been going into the gsme with a stronger side although i do like the look of commper who won't play unfortunately.

09 Feb 2018 17:58:46
If we play like we did at home against Bayern we’ll beat them. If we play like we did at home against Anderlecht we won’t. It depends on how much belied our players have, especially after their pride taking a couple of big hits against PSG.

09 Feb 2018 18:25:47
FFS somebody buy Magicpole a player.

09 Feb 2018 18:28:15
It’s all about how we take them on. If Musonda can turn it on and we manage to get out of the neutral we got stuck in on Saturday then we have a chance of a draw.

I don’t know where the confidence is supposed to come from as we have been mostly poor this season. The defence is always our Achilles heel and I think we have done feck all to improve it. Hendry wouldn’t get in before Boyata on his Saturday performance where he exhibited bombscare tendencies too.

Going for the cheapskate option once again leaves us no better than we started defensively wise. Which is criminal and potentially our undoing. Who knew the board would baulk at spending money on quality? I actually believed they would for once do it right.

Never again, a board of cheapskate spivs till the end.

09 Feb 2018 22:29:01
Magic zenit are in the el for a reason they may be better than us but stop being so pessimistic man we might just beat them.

10 Feb 2018 03:31:35
On paper I'm looking at the fit squad and it's not the best. I'm hoping we just get stuck in. It's one of those games where the worst could happen or big Eddie and the moose play a blinder and mcgregor gets motm in a 3-1 scintillator;) . I'll not go into outcome B.
I couldn't name any of thier first 11 and i couldn't tell you a single thing about thier form or how they play. There aren't many on here that could hold a half decent conversation with a fan of russian football about that league. The money is definitely there as are the wages and good sides are built from that. The other part that isn't taken into account is the money bump for players moving to that league. These guys are no mugs but we have palyed better teams to get to the same place they are now.
Time for bed :)

10 Feb 2018 10:30:56
I had absolu convinced myself we would get players of quality in the help the defence. To be honest I’m more pissed off at myself for believing.

As I said though, we play with the same tenacity and skill we showed against Hearts we have a chance. I just know that we could have been better prepared and another opportunity has been missed. The news about perhaps meeting a seeded team if we fail to get a point just out the tin hat on my frustration.

I have learned a lesson though. Nothing changes no matter who is in charge. That shocked me.

11 Feb 2018 20:51:29
Can’t wait til Thursday

If we beat Zenit which I highly doubt even with there break then a lot of posters can relish in there confident predictions however if Zenit win and if they win comfortably then please be quick to apologise to those voicing there concerns at the season of regression.

09 Feb 2018 11:00:39
Anyone else seen Dundee to sign Caulker? Surely he would have been worth a punt for 6 months at least to see how he done .

What's people's thoughts on starting 11 for zenit game

De Vrise





11 Feb 2018 01:20:30
Might be time to try the old 442 again Rich T? With the setup of every team we face now domestically we are outnumbered in mf it seems. With three players playing in front of two there is zero space or support. There is litteraly no-one playing in the centre circle. Every game I watch. If the ball is squeezed out to the wings it takes us an eternity to carry the ball forward.

13 Feb 2018 10:39:16
I would start the same team who played against Hearts. Moussa needs support. We need Kouassi in there to dig in and try to nullify their midfield threat.

At the back, it’s a toss up of a variation of players we are not fully confident can defend to a level we need. I think Rogers will put in Hendry, it would be a strange one if even he didn’t think he could cut it as his only cb signing who can actually play.

Hopefully if he does, he repays what Rogers saw in him. He has to because we need at least a point in this tie or we go into the cl qualifiers with the prospect of being drawn against a seeded team.

If the defence sells the jerseys this tie, and only those in possession of the thickest green specs don’t think that is a real possibility, then the responsibility is wholly Rogers for being in this position after four transfer windows squandered to sort it.

A combination of loss of form, injuries and the same vulnerable defence mean we go into this tie in probably the worst shape we have been since Rogers took over.

I can’t see him playing Charlie from the start, as he will need time to find his feet as he has been ineffective so far. We need at least a point and I will be happy if we achieve that as a first step. Play the way we can and I would be confident of that, but we haven’t played that way often enough. Hopefully this could be the game to return to and maintain our form for the rest of the season. Conversely, if we get taken to the cleaners, it will dent confidence even more and sets up a nervy run in to secure another Treble.

To be in a position where Aberdeen and Sevco genuinely believe they have a chance of beating us at their maddens shows us clearly how poor we have been. We should be out of sight of them with the resources at our disposal. What gives them real hope is the undeniable fact our defence can be got at. Couple this with us stalling mid to front and you can see if our form continues they are right. They do have a chance, two pish teams fancying their chances says everything about how we have stalled yet again in true Celtic fashion.

Rangers have improved, they are still on paper nowhere near us, but games aren’t won on paper and our players need a rocket up their arse to let them know that. It’s time they stood up and played the way they can. The sideways and back pattern of play is down to players having no confidence to beat a man and run at defences with speed and good passing. Against Hearts we saw this in spades. We need it back on Thursday. Then every game after that.

08 Feb 2018 20:12:20
Looks like Steven Caulker is joining Dundee, what a signing.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Feb 2018 23:24:20
Where did that come from? Odd.

09 Feb 2018 00:43:37
Between the bloggers, the fans and the media's input already on this it's a bit of a belter. We have had a bit of traffic dealing with Dundee this January. Probably coincidence.

09 Feb 2018 09:57:26
They must have used some of the Hendry money to fund his wages. A lot of people unhappy that we didn’t get him but he’s definitely a punt.

09 Feb 2018 11:17:33
He's a hell of a punt kev. Can you imagine if he had a couple of rusty games for us? Wouldn't do his confidence much good.

13 Feb 2018 09:16:48
Can’t see Mc Cann being part of a master plan to get Caulker to us. That’s just a non starter. We could have matched what Dundee are paying him and this would have been a punt worth taking for me.

To see a situation whereby Rogers tells him to go to Dundee and McCann playing along is up there with the 9/ 11 inside job pish as conspiracies go.

If he does turn it on I hope he has only signed for six months and we don’t have to pay good money to that wee person. If he’s still in a job after relegation that is.

06 Feb 2018 20:55:18
Ralston got a game with the development squad, if he plays at the weekend that's 2 games under his belt before the European the. Is that enough after such a long time out? And do you think BR is considering him or will he go with Hendry or Ajer at RB? Or will he do neither aand stick with 352? That's the big decision I think.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Feb 2018 08:13:08
Think we need to go with the 352 put our best performance in a long time under that formation playing the 2 strikers.

07 Feb 2018 11:56:50
I hate 3 at the back. We het caught out with diagonal balls all time. Use to happen to oneils teams in Europe a lot.

{Ed007's Note - It happened at Kilmarnock on Saturday, Kev with the ball to Jordan Jones.}

07 Feb 2018 12:22:20
Exactly ed.
Løvenkrands loved it when we played it and I mind our fans going nuts about it.
We oneil switched agathe to RB Løvenkrands never kicked a ball against Celtic again.
Like I said above teams in Europe use to target it all the time.

{Ed007's Note - It's the standard way to play against a 3 man defence.}

07 Feb 2018 17:54:19
If i’m being honest I don’t get the hype about young Ralston, I know he hasn’t played many first team games but he hasn’t done anything of great note in the few that he has, he is no Kieran Tierney, he will probably get better with experience, I don’t think throwing him into the Zenit game is the answer, if Lustig is fit he is the best and most experienced right back at the club despite having a couple of disappointing games recently .

06 Feb 2018 19:19:54
Have you heard anything about Rogic or Roberts being fit enough for thistle or zenit?

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Feb 2018 12:54:04
Broony suspended for next league game.

06 Feb 2018 07:51:28
More bad news young Mikey Johnson out for the season but Armstrong nearly fit according to reports. this must be the worst injury list ever.

Wee bit of good news. Raleston due to play in the development game this week.

Agree3 6Disagree

05 Feb 2018 01:39:02
Good news. He has to be thrown in when fit. Let his nerves settle and rule him in or out by the summer, backup or first 11.

05 Feb 2018 06:12:32
Good news, especially with how poor lustig has been performing.

05 Feb 2018 15:57:38
Seems to have came through the game unscathed.

05 Feb 2018 21:23:33
Rglen8, Ralston will be a great footballer. First team next season.

06 Feb 2018 07:20:56
Give him a run out against thistle.

06 Feb 2018 11:40:47
He better be a great player because it's clear the board aren't willing to buy one. I hope the boy can step up but at this stage I'm not convinced. Another occasion where I will gladly kick my height if he proves me wrong.

06 Feb 2018 12:21:52
Think he has all the makings to be another lustig when he was at his best. Good hight strong as an ox got a bit of pace. I think he will make that position his own.

06 Feb 2018 19:22:18
No direct dig at Ralston intended. I'd love a home grown lad to take the spot. My point being even if lusting is fit I'd opt to give Ralston game time to see how he does. If he cuts the mustard then I'll be delighted.

04 Feb 2018 01:44:44
Ok the two injuries didn't help and the pitch wasn't great but hey its alright as long as Rangers get beat. well it's not ok our style of play is so predictable average teams like Killie (no disrespect) make us look bang average and Brendan can't change it. Still insist we missed a trick not getting Moult from Motherwell because when we need to go long there's nobody suited for that.

Should have sold Dembele in the window his heads elsewhere (French world cup squad) . It's not good enough just to win the league it's how we do it that concerns me. Like the look of Hendry and big Ajer was doing well. I think Helen Flannagan should be getting the suitcases packed because I'm not sure sinky will be there next year. And we still need a number 1 GK in the summer.

Agree3 13Disagree

04 Feb 2018 06:45:30
If dembele has his head on the world cup squad then he would need to get his finger out.

04 Feb 2018 10:03:59
To be fair to Dembele he received no service whatsoever. A day when everything that could go, did go wrong. It could easily have been a bigger beating. They missed a couple of great chances.

I wonder if Gordon will revert to eddy and Moussa again? With Charly taking Forrest’s place?

That’s how I would go.

04 Feb 2018 11:58:54
As I have said all season, this slow build up from the back is so frustrating. all we do with passing the ball about the back is give teams time to get 11 men behind the ball and get organised.
Honestly think we are far too predictable in our play and never mix it up, yesterday Forrest only player willing to take players on and try and create something.
What has happened to Sinclair? he has lost it this season altogether.
Some players really need a kick up the arse.

04 Feb 2018 23:22:55
Dembele and Edouard are both 6 foot or above so explain how there was no one to go long to? They barely touched the ball because the service was shocking.
