Job done today. Crap pitch, crap weather and a crap referee (again) . Somebody is due a skelping soon, hope it's next week. MTH!

Loving the football being played at the moment. That performance last night reminded me a lot on how German teams play. Fast and direct passing and very energetic up to the last ten minutes. Inevitably, Hamilton decided to throw players forward at the end but we coped well apart from a couple of tired looking relapses. Griffs had a great game and looked to be on his best behavior. Not bad night at the office but 1-0 is always a bit dodgy for the sucker punch.

Are you sure you weren't on the German beer as last night was a poor performance. Yes we could have won by more but it was below par from everyone except Roberts imo. We will have games like that in all seasons but main thing we won and we move on to Saturday and will probably get a better performance from the team.

Last night there were a few off the boil and we made a bit heavy weather against an opponent that came to defend with ten behind the ball - hoping not to get hammered.
It wasn't our usual high standard and the system seemed to stifle Rogic and Armstrong until later in the game and showed why BR rarely plays two up front?
Dembele really needs a wee break and with Tierney, Sinclair and the Forrest coming back, maybe a couple can take a rest before the winter break - when they can all recharge the batteries in preparation for the run-in.

I was on Coors last night Jim! I didn't say it was a brilliant performance but we have most definitely improved under Brendan Rodgers. There looks to me a real team mentality going on. I admit that there was a lot of huff and puff without much of an end product but the passing game Brendan is working on is mostly coming off. We are not the finished product, not by a long way but there are mostly positives about our style of play. If we get some quality in place after January then we should hopefully have the treble winning team in place ready for the CL qualifiers. Good times ahead!

I wasn't too happy with last night's performance . LG, M D, and SA were all too careless in front of goal . The referee was definitely anti Celtic and I thought he deprived us of two penalties . First half I thought Roberts was taken down and in a secondary movement defender got a touch on ball . Near the end L G was dragged to ground and ref wandered up and gave free out . In fact in last 15 mins or so with Celtic only one nil up ref gave numerous frees to Hamilton and tried to not give any to Celtic
The over- all feeling I had after last night's game was fine we won but if we played the same way on the 31st we probably only win by two or three goals.

Ibrox will be intimidating. It will be a tough fixture. They don't lose there Old Bhoy ( 32 and counting I'm told )
They will kick and snarl and rush and get the stadium jumping. This is there cup final and a chance for some long lasting winter cheer
So complacency in that fixture is the enemy as would be a lack of intensity
With a good referee and good discipline and the right mentality we win because we're better BUT Ibrox is nonetheless a challenging venue
I see high kicks and elbows and diving and cheating., for them it will be ANY WAY and ANY HOW and BY ANY MEANS
If they drop points per 31st and lose to CFC I can see a change in bread delivery personnel
BRs popularity on the other hand would go stratospheric with a romp in their backyard.

stuff of champions to play badly and still win.

Champions find ways to win.

"I see high kicks and elbows and diving and cheating., " - Aye and that's just Joe Garner lol.

Them game on the 31st is between a good all round team with good back - up players for most positions . This team Celtic is well coached fit &swell capable of changing tactics . We play a Rangers team, made up of sub standard footballers, signed as out of contract players from lower league teams . Players in their mid to late 30's who in their own minds had retired and always injured unwanted players in late teen& early twenties .
This match should be no contest, but in Scotland nothing is simple and referees have eyes in the back of their heads and complicate things for Celtic . We should win easily but u never know.

that is what I was getting at Tompo88…. this will be a one way blood fest IMVHO with Rangers deploying hammer throwing tactics in the hope that the crowd will intimidate the ref…. and the ref will turn many many blind eyes …
they can't get close to us on a straight head to head, and so you'll see kick and rush and nips and dives and everything that football shouldn't involve
this is just my view / feeling of why awaits us
but to win there handsomely would be a great statement.

Great performance today from the team. Aberdeen couldn't get near us and I've never seen such a 1 sided final for as long as I can remember. Good to be a tim at the moment. Mon The Hoops!

Just watched the Thistle Aberdeen post match interview with that non person manager the sheep have. What a vile scumbag he really is. The lassie is a post match interviewer, she had the right to ask questions about the performance but he is a nasty, bitter little fud who is lapping up his own hype. He's a definite shoe in for when the breadman chucks it over at Asbestos United.

…but apart form that you find him impressive?
2.) 05 Nov 2016 12:59:16
Got to agree with big rab! Cannot stand that guy! And hype is all that he will ever be. think it's an absolute cert that he'll manage that mob at some point! Well he's spent the last few years watching the champs canter the league so he knows what to expect when he makes his move! Lol.

You could understand why he's got the hump, he never really did much wrong. BR plays Moussa because he's playing better football at the moment. That said, throwing your toys out the pram at a club like Celtic will never get you back in the team. He has to show his determination in training with his attitude and work rate. Nobody has the divine right to be in our starting eleven.

Spot on Jim Tim. That prospect could be a tantalising lure for other targets normally out of our reach.
17 Jan 2017 09:29:02
Sounds like a good gig. I'll be a scout in Rhodes if Celtic need me. Loads of talent round the Fala raki area so I hear!

The EPL, the best league in the world! My arse! Man United v Liverpool, boring.
14 Jan 2017 11:14:07
Utter tripe, blatant free advertising for their haggis hun fest. I would never ever buy ANY newspaper now. Pure guff written by hasbeen hacks.
13 Jan 2017 09:53:38
I heard different Jim, I have a source who said he seen a bunch of Celtic fans going bezerk and causing £40,000 worth of improvements!

Charles Green couldn't wait to tap into the seedier side of your support, as with King, a good business model has no conscience. You only have to look at your pre season visit to Belfast and the pictures of YOUR manager posing with the Shankhill Road Defenders Flute Band! Why alienate a large section of your knuckledraggers, willing to splash the cash? Your club has a very nasty, hardcore element associated with it and what has your club done to erradicate it? Absolutely zip mate! So before you give it the woe is us crap, take a look at your fellow 'supporters' and ask yourself if they have toned it down over the years. As with any support, there are bams following but for 20-30,000+ fans to suddenly burst into 'We are the Billy Boys' just shows how deep rooted it is. You might not participate yourself UJ, you say you don't but thousands do, every week.
