Boy that was tough to watch at times. It looked as though the ball had been greased with butter. I am happy with the 3 points, but I hope that was just a singular blip that is not predictor for this week's CL match. Hail hail!

Mate it was mostly because of the pitch but am still a bit wary for Barcelona. Saying that I'd much rather be feeling like this about facing Barcelona than feeling like it about the jambos, know what a mean?

Absolutely! I knew the pitch was poor, but I live in Canada, so I'm not too familiar with the quality. It didn't seem like anyone could keep control of the ball tonight.

It was more a dig at sevco bud but I share your pessimism about boyata no need to worry too much tho I think simonovic was spared because of the surface hail hail🍀.


4.) 19 Nov 2016 06:33:38
Pitch was terrible but thought we played ok in spells, should have put game to bed earlier but deary me boyatas a bomb scare.


5.) 19 Nov 2016 09:11:09
Grinding out ugly games is something we never had in the locker under RD. Rodgers and the backroom squads man management has been good so far. 4 months in charge and things are miles better all around. Getting CK, EA, Cifci, GMS, SA and more deadwood off the payroll come Jan or at the end of the season leaves room for another 3 or 4 quality players. HH.

One big improvement I think there is this year from team over the last 10 years or so. Our defence is usually better at covering up mistakes, than every other year . It used to annoy me that nearly every mistake resulted in a goal, but this year very often when we make a mistake another defender gets the ball cleared.

Hello lads,
That was a good away win in my opinion. Obviously we were caught flat footed for a few minutes, but there we a lot of positives.

That said, is it just me, of has Kieran Tierney looked a bit shaky the last 2 games? I know he is young and, obviously, he can't have a 10/ 10 all of the time. I was just wondering if I'm being too harsh or if anyone feels the same. Roll on Tuesday!

Yes I thought he looked a bit scared in possession against Beer-Sheva a bit hesitant but he came on to a good game and seemed to gain confidence in himself

Today thought he lacked confidence but he young think he will be fine under br.


2.) 20 Aug 2016 16:08:40
Charlstep

You are correct.

Crossing poor
Defending poor
Positional sense hit and miss

He's had a pullback on form but he's young and there has been an awful awful lot of positives

We need to expect some indifferent performances but he tries. That's for sure. He certainly tries.


3.) 20 Aug 2016 16:09:56
Bit harsh charstep-think KC has largely been Mr. Consistency and as you say yourself just a young laddie.


4.) 20 Aug 2016 16:14:31
I don't think we'll see a great deal of shut outs under BR going off his former sides. It will be very much a case of just scoring more than the opponents I think. Whilst the defence look shaky whenever they're equally matched, it will become a bit of a problem against better sides in Europe, but that's almost inevitable. At home, I'll take 4-2 every week.


5.) 20 Aug 2016 16:16:35
Has a couple of poorer games he looked a yard off the pace gee the Bhoy a break inconsistency happens with all players.


6.) 20 Aug 2016 16:18:43
Tierney has been massive. I was just wondering if he was carrying a knock or something like that. I just hope he is back to his best in Israel. He is a very important player for us. Hail hail!


7.) 20 Aug 2016 16:20:28
kind of felt the same to be honest looking sharp going forward but as I said earlier need to sort these defensive lapses pronto or we WILL be punished by better teams this season. hoping it's just a case of the defence gelling a bit more and understanding each others game though. as for Tierney the guys still got a lot to learn but brendan will nurture him into an even better player. last 2 games I agree with but still 7/ 10 easy. hail hail.


8.) 20 Aug 2016 16:39:16
Did young Teirney not take a dull one against Beer-Sheeva.


9.) 20 Aug 2016 17:12:08
Don't think I've seen 1 game where I've thought Tierney had a poor game, he is always consistent, never hides and plays for the jerseys. Any mistakes made along the way is a learning curve and for me itscgreat seeing one of our own in a Celtic jersey.
He will learn from any mistakes and gain experience so he starts every game 4 me as he just gets better n better. Credit to Rd for giving the wee man his chance and he's never looked back.
Great game today, thought we controlled it well n look like we will outscore most teams. Lot of quality options in the forward positions and I think schviatchenko, still 2 cum back I think may shore up the defence, for me has 2 b a starter.
Now for a win against the Israelis, given how poor they are, while we don't need 2 win as a draw suits I'd expect us as the better team to be able to best this mob home n away as they have nothing for us, bang average.
Hail hail.


10.) 20 Aug 2016 17:40:33
St Johnstone is never an easy place to go these days under the guidance of Tommy Wright. stating the obvious I suppose but we made heavy work of it at the end and nearly gifted them a third goal. I thought the defence was sloppy at times, even before the goal. young O'Connell has done a great job in recent weeks but has had a few lapses in concentration this past 2 games so tend to think BR has some thinking to do as to whether he brings in big Erik for Tuesday's game. was glad to see Henderson and Christie get some game time as I think they are two fine talents.


11.) 20 Aug 2016 18:10:20
He only looks a bit off the pace due to his high standards and previous level of performance.

He is a class act.


12.) 20 Aug 2016 18:14:29
Kieran Tierney is the closest I have seen to Danny McGrain for many years. I mentioned below that he has been a bit short of his own tremendous standards in the last two games, but even so, he never hides and tries to persevere and play for the team.
If he is carrying an injury I hope the back-room staff look after him and the manager stops him from pushing himself too hard.
He is one of our brightest prospects and seems to be the sort that would never want to miss a single game,
I am more concerned about Gordon, Janko and O'Connell, who are looking a bit out of place in this new-look team.


13.) 20 Aug 2016 20:04:02
We played with a very inexperienced back four today Janko O'Connell& Tierney all youngsters and all learning their role . The big ex Liverpool Tuoro was every bit as shaky as the rest of our defence. Hopefully they will all do better during the week.


14.) 20 Aug 2016 20:07:33
Judging by your name IWEISS, (I'll call you that for short if it's ok) you know more than me. Poor games are expected, but KT has the potential to be the best full back I've seen in my 27 years. The kid's head seems right on from what he's said, his talent has already been demonstrated, what he actually needs is poor games, to learn from, but not be discouraged.


15.) 20 Aug 2016 21:51:41
KT is the best left back since the great Anton Rogan.
Our problem is right back janko just not good enough, weak in the tackle, slack passing, one trick pony going forward, can't cross, might improve doubt it. need Lustig for big games. although now make better centre.


16.) 20 Aug 2016 22:15:06
KT has a problem with his shoulder after injuring it a couple of weeks ago. I hearing he may need an op, u heard anything on this ed.


17.) 20 Aug 2016 20:55:11
I'm surprised that Tierney has gone as long as he has in the team before having a slight dip in his form.
Nearly all young players however promising tend to have a drop in performance after a while. The fact that KT has been so consistent for such a long time since coming into the team just shows what a special player he is going to be in my opinion.

Hi Ed. Just wondering if have heard any news about Partick Roberts. Thanks!

charstep

{Ed007's Note - He's progressing well and still could be fit for the second leg of the CL qualifiers.}


 

 

08 Jun 2016 22:35:55
Hi Ed.
Just a quick question for you. If we managed to part ways with Stokes, Scepovic, CKR and Carlton Cole, how much in wages do you think that would account for?

Thanks.

charstep

{Ed007's Note - It depends. If the players never asked for a transfer they are entitled to be paid any money due in their contract although they will more than likely negotiate a settlement unless they play hardball like Boerrigter who got every last dime he was due. Cole had a clause to leave this summer but I don't know if it was his or the Club's decision to terminate it, I'd imagine CKR had he same kind of deal going by what he said to RD - he was only here until the summer.
If the Club have told Stokes he is no longer required he will be due all monies from his contract so we won't be saving anything.}}


1.) 09 Jun 2016 01:14:06
Thanks for the detailed reply, Ed. I was hoping for a less expensive answer. Cheers!

{Ed007's Note - No probs buddy.}


2.) 09 Jun 2016 08:29:15
Stokes contract up because we never took the option to extend it a year is it not?


 

 

17 May 2016 01:22:49
Good evening, Ed.
By chance, do you have any idea when the new away strip will be coming out? Thanks.

charstep

{Ed007's Note - I've no idea mate, sorry.}


1.) 17 May 2016 03:42:02
Thanks anyway. I'll just have to wait!


2.) 17 May 2016 12:05:14
Think I read something that should be released around the 7th July

Usually reliable with the 3rd kit the 3Rd August.
