One of our best victories for some time today . Ok let us get the bad bits out of the way first . Toure blundered for first goal& nobody in any sort of position to help him . The M'well player may have been off side but I don't think there was enough in it for assistant to be sure . Gordon standing doing nothing 6/ 8 yds from goal, if he had been on goal line or had dashed towards him the M'well player would had to do more .
2nd goal was a free kick and a booking all the way . The M'well player didn't get near the ball and he kicked Lustig's boot which diverted the ball. Tore was standing day dreaming in no man's land and should have been aware of their player behind him
3rd goal Jozo should have been aware of the player behind him and should have marked him .
Our team nevertheless played brilliantly, first McCallom 's brilliantly taken goal was a real gem, he showed so called better players how calmness and accuracy works .
Armstrong was absolutely brilliant today, when Celtic were going through the motions in the first half Armstrong was throwing himself into numerous tackles and winning the ball all over the park . 2nd half scored great goal and se- up 2-3 more . Rogic proved when he is needed for 90 mins he can play the 90.scoring in the 90th min
What I liked best was that our lest illustrious players this season were our best players in the second half . Roberts also stepped up to the mark . No matter who comes in January I don't see the likes of Armstrong not playing a role.

I doubt unless I beat the medical records and live about 15 more years that crowd from Govan won't trouble us for any league .
If they do the decent thing in this incarnation, pay their debts, stop cheating with referees and don't cheat the tax man, then they won't be able to bridge the 124 year age gap.

A Glasgow club is almost at 10 in a row.
This is not been achieved through fair play and football ability . Rangers 2012 have today been awarded 9 home cup draws in a row. If they get the right ref, no doubt they will beat Motherwell and get their only 10 in a row . The odds of getting 9 in a row is 512-1. Rangers have hot balls no doubt.

Normally I would accept the luck of the draw Old Bhoy but this stinks of 2 week old Haddock. Have the institution again colluded to give the tramps a home tie to keep them in business another week? It really is looking very dodgy. What odds are they for getting their 10th home tie if they beat 'Well? Must be in the thousands to one! The only thing is that silly man picking the balls didn't pick the iced ball to give them a non league team!

2.) 29 Nov 2016 13:38:56
Being a paranoid tim I think Sevco will continue to get HOME ties as this gives club access to much needed revenue. The SFA are hoping they get to final which would mean 5 possible 50,000 crowds and the bulk of money going to the new club.

3.) 29 Nov 2016 20:59:45
Is it not the case that cup games the gate revenue is split between both teams tim? And league business home team keep the revenue?

4.) 30 Nov 2016 01:45:14
Maybe so lummy but 50% of 50,000 is a lot more than 50% of 10,000 or whatever it is.

5.) 01 Dec 2016 18:22:13
Def. Stepbhoy That would be the main reason to have Rangers balls heated .
Too weak a club from 3rd div . Mightn't fill Ipox but M'well can often lie down to the Bears.



26 Nov 2016 20:33:35
Now that the dust has settled on our Barcelona fixtures for this year . I have to say that I am worried about the jitters that returned to our defence when defending corners . Now Barcelona are certainly no great shakes at scoring from corners directly into the box . But on Wedneday night our defence acted like last season or even early season this season. I hope last Wednesday was a one off as we can't start that nonsense again.

Old Bhoy

1.) 26 Nov 2016 22:07:47
What's your solution Oldbhoy?

2.) 26 Nov 2016 23:48:18
Tell the ref not to give them corners haha.

{Ed007's Note - Hide the corner flags?}



16 Nov 2016 21:00:54
We all know Scottish finest referees this season haven't minded putting their reputation at stake, by making biased decisions against Celtic. However the appointments Commitee have changed their tactics and instead of appointing one of their top referees for the League Cup Final against Aberdeen, they have appointed John Beaton who is as poor a referee as you can get refereeing SPL matches . God knows what sort of decisions he will come up with .
In the mean time the SPL fixture's Commitee working with BT have Celtic playing on Friday night after the International break . Celtic had 14 players away and Kilmarnock had one or two. Luckily all Celtic players are expected back by Thursday, every bit of hindrance the authorities can find they use .

1.) 17 Nov 2016 08:20:27
Behave Oldbhoy, your paranoia is verging on the ridiculous, referees are humans they all make mistakes, until we get some sort of video, cctv, monitoring of dodgy decisions the arguments will go on. The decisions for and against should even out over a season.

2.) 17 Nov 2016 10:23:51
Listen, we all know over the years we have had dodgy decisions against us in many games. But in all honesty we are miles ahead of all the teams this season it wouldn't matter if John bomber brown reffed all our games. If the team play to their abilities we will wipe the floor with all sides in Scotland. While saying that we have had at least 3 decisions go our way where different outcomes should have happened. 2 with Gordon and one with sviatchenko. Let's just move on from the paranoia, it's one of the last things the Huns have over us.

3.) 17 Nov 2016 13:51:19
I can understand Aindoh 's sympathy for referees, he relies on BBC radio Scotland to watch the games . That's why he is calling for 3 minute time -outs to decide on what basis not to give Celtic decision .
As for Quinn1888, it's true that if three decisions had been awarded against us, that would have been another three bad decisions awarded against which when added to the approximate 8/ 9 decisions wrongly awarded against us .
If Quinn 1888 thinks we are treated favourably by referees then he is a member of a very small group . I have never come across sensible fans from any club who thinks referees are biased towards their team .
Any Celtic fan who think that we need to move on from paranoia, as it one of the last things the "dead" Huns have over us is a fool . How can them poor dead souls have anything over us.

4.) 17 Nov 2016 14:08:53
Several teams have had Friday games for TV just our turn and give us more recovery time for barca.

5.) 17 Nov 2016 15:36:11
Old boy u need to read my comment again, not once did I say the refs are favourable in our favour. We have had many a disgraceful decision against us over the years, but u coming on here whinging about it is not going to change anything. My point was that we should be good enough this season to overcome a dodgy decision against any side in Scotland. Like Kev above look at it that it gives us more rest for Barcelona . I don't know why I assume this but Barcelona may be slightly more difficult than killie 😳.

6.) 17 Nov 2016 17:35:54
different years same old freemason referees.

7.) 17 Nov 2016 19:07:05
Old Bhoy, I think you are too obsessed with referees, I've seen some poor refereeing this season but the poor refereeing has affected both teams, we have benefited from some decisions and we have been the victims of some decisions, I can't honestly say that I've watched games and thought that the referee had an agenda against us.
When you look at the semi final for example, leading up to the match the story was about how biased Craig Thomson was against us, yet just about the first decision he made was to deny Sevco a penalty and book their player for diving. Surely if there was such an agenda against us he would just have awarded the penalty and be done with it.
As for playing on Friday night, a lot of European teams if they have got Champions league matches, have their previous league matches scheduled for the Friday to give them longer to prepare, this is seen as trying to help them, I'm not saying that is the reason that this match was moved, but if anything it should be a help rather than a hindrance to us.

8.) 17 Nov 2016 20:42:02
For anyone who doubts the dodginess of some refs in scotland just watch the game Johnny Doyle got sent off for crossing the ball.

9.) 17 Nov 2016 23:08:17
The game at ibrox in 2009 was one of the dodgiest in recent years when Davie Weir could have had 3 yellows and a straight red and wasn't even booked, Lafferty nearly took Big Micks head off with an elbow and escaped with nothing and Novo karate kicked Mark Wilson with no punishment on top of that 2 stone wall pens turned down, all in a days work for Mr Thompson.

10.) 18 Nov 2016 00:59:31
Gerryc. I honesty thought you were a good poster once,
But good posters don't post that when The Rangers player clearly dives in the box and Thompson correctly books him HE doesn't DENY HIM A PENALTY .
honesty that is as near stupid as u can get Gerryc In future we have to be grateful for the referee penalising an opposition player who fouls one of ours .
I thought Eric was robbed in the same match when the Thompson scut penalised Eric after he scored a goal because Eric allowed Hill two attempts to foul him .
Kev83 . Strange that the club who had 14 players away on International leave should be awarded Friday night game on an artificial surface . Other SPL teams have max of about 4 players . I don't get that the SPL are trying to have fixtures to ease Celtic in Europe before they played the German team they had a mid week and a Saturday fixture in the highlands, easy preparation .
I have deliberately tried to refrain from going on about referees and the fixtures commutes this season, but they are worse than ever but there are always some do gooders who cannot see wrong in what they do.

11.) 18 Nov 2016 10:00:59
Thomson could give us a thousand penalties but he's still a scumbag.

12.) 18 Nov 2016 10:24:23
Keep up the good work Oldbhoy, hate to see what you'd be like if you were'nt trying to refrain about going on about referees.

13.) 18 Nov 2016 15:12:32
@oldbhoy - no mention yet again of Dembeles dive in the box in the same game that would have seen him win Splash by a country mile!

14.) 18 Nov 2016 16:47:16
UJ your a funny man the list of sevco players hitting the dirt this season is laughable. Your players spend more time trying to win fouls and penalties and getting players booked. If they focused as much on actually playing football you might even manage third place. I feel however January will be interesting if you actually manage to offload players. don't see much clamour for anyone, and you need to sell to buy!

15.) 18 Nov 2016 19:33:07
Old Bhoy, you can't have it both ways, if there such an agenda against us then Thomson would surely have awarded the penalty.
In years gone by Celtic have been the victims of some dodgy practices, but these days with all the cameras filming from every angle, referees just wouldn't get away with it anymore.
You can't just say that every time a decision goes against us it means that referees have an agenda, we have benefited from some poor decisions, so you have to be fair about it.

16.) 21 Nov 2016 00:59:42
AGood to see Union Jack watches a proper team and has given up on his four year old team.

Aindoh, have u watched Celtic this season yet, live at the match, or on T V or are you still watching on the Radio.

I would imagine Paddy has six months to make B R determined to want to buy him .
The same six months will probably have Manchester City deciding if they want to bring him into their squad, or loaned to another club or loaned again to Celtic or even sold.

Tick67 fair play to Green Brigade, the club should be proud of them and the hard work their members do with the collection and distribution. Of course great praise to so many Celtic supporters who contribute food and hygiene essentials for both sexes, all done quietly and without any fuss . We should be proud of all concerned, charity at the need base .

Old Bhoy

{Ed007's Note - Yeah those food collections are always done quietly and with no fuss.}

For once Ed007 I just cannot believe why you ask me why I had a dig at Rio in the first place .
I made it absolutely clear that I hated the way B R made a show of him leaving the proceeds of his parents house to charity and making it known that he was visiting a Children's hospice on Christmas Day . I prefer acts of charity to be done privately without fuss, just like a certain Mr Lennon who used to be at Celtic .
I cannot understand either how some people seem to make their mind up whether they like a player or manager by things nothing to do with football ability or manage ring ability . I love B R as he is successful as our manager . I liked R D when he was Celtic manager too. I don't dislike Rio, but I didn't like the showing off of giving money to charity . Neither Brendan Rio Ronnie or Neil will care if I like them or not but the fact is I do .

Old Bhoy

{Ed007's Note - Neil Lennon done his charity work privately? That's just miles out, do you know how to use Google? Theres plenty on there of Lennon's public charity work.
The rest of your post is just babbling garbage you think makes a point - it doesn't. }

I can't understand Ed u seemed to want a reply and when I did u didn't print it .
Let me say I hate the way that B R let's it be known of his generousity in giving his parents house to charity . Also Christmas Morning visit to children's hospice .
I honesty think he goes over the top beyond common decency .
However my love and likeness for B R is to deal solely with his very good managing of Celtic . Winning leagues, doubles and trebles and having reasonable success with Celtic will maintain my love for him . Chasing women and having yellow teeth doesn't matter to me . Brendan& I will never be best mates, we operate. in different circles and as long as he doesn't bring the club into disrepute, I will like him.

Ed . I have no problem in saying I cringe when I read what B R is doing on Christmas morning . In general he is too fond of telling us how great a person he is .
I am quite sure I couldn't stand the man as my best friend but at the end of the day that is totally irrelevant to me as I can never will be close friends .
I. like B R simply because he is a very good manager at Celtic and is doing a very good job, as long as he doesn't bring the club into disrepute and continues to manage us well, we will get on great.
Not living in the West of Scotland I haven't got to know managers well except Martin o 'Neil whom I have known I have known since the teenage years, I don't like him but it didn't stop me appreciating his success at Celtic.
