Brilliant to see so many different ideas about MOM last night--all of them good shouts.

Still buzzin'.

I think there were so many on top form that it was easier to praise the team than even try to single out individuals.
I have rarely seen a more complete performance from a Celtic side in Europe from back to front and the confidence that must bring the manager and players is a real boost for the rest of the season.
No-one is saying we are through to the next round; but whatever happens, we know that we have some great players, fabulous potential and even more talent that are champing at the bit from the sidelines, dying to get back into contention for medals, trophies and many more nights like that.

What pisses me off about Levein's comments is that it suggests that rules should apply to individuals rather than to everyone in the game.
Unfortunately, this seems to actually be something that the referees also subscribe to.

I'm not a conspiracy theorist myself, but how can we have honest refereeing until we grasp the idea that the rules ought to apply to everyone?

His problem was he thought he had a system in place to counter us, maybe he did, but for one game. On a sticky pitch. against a team running on fumes. So well done jambots, live it up.

I also have a big jambot fan mate who cannot stand him, seems he is a very arrogant man.

2.) 02 Feb 2018 12:02:04
Maybe if the the refs had applied the protection levein is asking for in his own playing days then graham hogg wouldn't have been attacked and knocked out by a thug in his own team. i've yet yet to see scott brown do that to another player.

3.) 02 Feb 2018 12:55:55
The last time Brown was sent off was away to Aberdeen in November 2014 for 2 fouls. Yes, he did get sent off against Ross County away last season but that was appealed and overturned.

He had played 177 games since the November 2014 sending off and only once has he put in a challenge that a referee felt was a bit too strong or intended to hurt anyone.

He is aggressive and out to injure players right enough.

4.) 02 Feb 2018 15:37:54
CL singling out SB the way he has is disgraceful. We all know SB is a combative, aggressive player who walks the line and likes to get in the oppositions head. But to suggest that he goes out trying to hurt players every game, when as Niall points out his disciplinary record is better than some players, is poor.

If the deadline comes and goes and Moussa Dembele is still a Celtic player, I'll be absolutely delighted. He's easily the best striker in Scotland and its no stretch to imagine why the big clubs have been keeping an eye on hm.

I also happen to think that Griff is a genuinely world class striker now.

So the question has got to be, when do we start playing to our obvious strengths, rather than to an a priori and more-or-less-arbitrary system to flatter the gaffer's ego.

Shoot me down.

Financially, all the EPLs clubs are big clubs UJ, complete opposite to your financial half incher of a club. There you go, pants doon bottom skelped, UJ.

I moan about Tom Boyd's soporific qualities - but my god- RedTV is the way to go!

Not only do we have the traditional language of the terrace on flagrant display, but (possibly drunk? ) "commentators" advocating t a psychiatric institution or cell for the alleged offender.

Tam Boyd out on loan, and these lads in before the deadline for me.


1.) 25 Jan 2018 12:31:44
Big Mick McManus was even worse. He talked non stop throughout the game. Total murder. :)

The best commentary part " It's like being in the stone ages here and were in the Main Stand'😂😂.

I'm fighting a bit of pre-match cynicism after hearing about BR's autobiography via an interview on the bbc tonite. Perfectly timed celebration, to be sure, on the continuing demise of the con-artists-formerly-known-as-rangers. I imagine it will do great in terms of sales right now, and don't grudge the man the telling of his tale--if that is what the book genuinely involves. He's all of 44, however, and in the middle of "building something" here (as we are regularly reminded) , so the timing doesn't exactly make for a retrospective as far as CFC is concerned. Won't get my panties in a twist, but any takers out there? Is it any good?


1.) 28 Oct 2017 10:48:11
Hi Cavalcanti, there are 20 year old “celebrities” from reality tv writing autobiography’s so I’m sure Brendan has more to say than them but I don’t think there will be too much about his time as our manager in it. I think the biggest insult that he can give to the “former club” would be to not mention them at all. HH.

2.) 28 Oct 2017 11:48:12
He's fit quite a bit into they 44 years. Growing up during the troubles moving to England to build his football career then having it taken away by injury then building a coaching career from a young age.

3.) 28 Oct 2017 18:53:54
I like it.


From now on I shall refer to them as CAFKAR! lol HH.

that team looks set up for a draw, Kev; what do you reckon? Need a bit more up top that Jamesy and Mousse.

That's pretty much what he's there for at the moment: to cover when Gordon can't play. Let him do his job, I say.

No point in a loan till summer, but I think we'd expect the negotiators to try to hard-wire the option to buy, wouldn't we? Can't see Chelsea going for it, mind.

Was glad to read this too. I must say, however, that he and his staff have contributed to the ambiguities and uncertainties.

Sell Moussa to built a hotel, UJ? Is that how you play monopoly round your way?

He was great yesterday, in all sorts of positions (just not at the corner flag as you say)

I've never rooted for Real before last nite, but something in that wee coynt Neymar just puts me over the edge . . . Rich's point, maybe, is that we were so quick to look for any reason to mitigate our spectacular unsuccess against PSG we forgot that we've played far better teams in recents times and put in a better shift. PSG aren't world-beaters at all . . . . and we are far from competitive when lacking form or key players through injury. Like tonite.

Still, I'm looking forward to the match tonite immensely. Keep it quiet for 25-30 minutes and let's get about them!

Could Musonda start in place of Sinky, maybe, and allow Kouassi or whomever prop up the Midfield? Scotty I like, but he is predictable, and every right-back in the country has got his number now.

If we get into gear today we might be entitled to some cautious optimism against Zenit. Would like to see the attackers look like they mean business, with the wingers trying to get wide and stretch the opposition line. Hopefully Musonda can also really dominate a bit too.

With Edouard featuring so prominently, sometimes to the neglect of more obvious starters, I wonder if there isn't something more to the initial agreement than we're heard about--a stipulation about playing time, or a lower end-of-season transfer fee.

Saying that, he does look like a more substantial prospect after last night's run out.
