Hi Ed was reading today that Steven MacLean is eligible to play tomorrow why is that if he was given a two match ban. oldkilly.


{Ed007's Note - One of the matches is in the LC next year, so he missed Wednesday's derby and the first LC game of next season.}

Just had a look at the fixture list, and noticed that since playing Kilmarnock on September 23 until rosenborg on November 29 we will have played 14 games and only 4 of those games were at Celtic Park. that's an incredible fixture list. oldkilly.

How is that right sevco would be going crazy if that was them wee baz still freaking about 2008.

Ed just watched Man Utd game and noticed that none of the stadium front three or four rows were vacant as you always seem to get at Celtic park on European nights also noticed the same at the other grounds except Lyon do you know why this is. oldkilly.


{Ed007's Note - I'm pretty sure it's something to do with UEFA's rules regarding the distance between the pitch and fans mate.}

Why was the lyon game closed doors.

{Ed007's Note - It was punishment for trouble during their Europa League tie against CSKA Moscow back in March and they were also handed a suspended ban for a second home game.

Aye a read something about crowd trouble last year, but wasnt sure exactly what it was for. Must've been a bit of a serious one.

Looks like a warzone. idiots.

I thought UEFA could not do anything if the trouble was outside the stadium?

6.) 03 Oct 2018 13:54:59
I’ve sat at the front behind the goal at a CL qualifier and the extra advertising boards made it impossible to actually see the goal line.

7.) 03 Oct 2018 13:59:18
It depends how close it is to the stadium I think. That footage looks right outside the stadium to me.

8.) 03 Oct 2018 21:22:01
Kevbhoy . I think it is something to do with the height of the bottom one, two or three rows of the stand . UEFA advertising boards are far higher than our normal advertising and so we have to keep bottom rows empty so as to not block the views of fans .

It shows how poor the fare is at Old Trafford when TV viewers are watching the seating arrangements for fans and not follow the game.

Hi everyone been a couple of years since I last posted under (Killy) have had a few health problems spot on now. I read the posts from fans daily, I just wanted to post regarding Sunday's game and the ongoing was it a penalty and red card. My son in law who is a grade 1 UEFA official who has covered World Cup and European champions qualifiers, champions league and europa league as well as domestic games explained to me why it was a penalty and red card. The defender made no attempt to clear the ball instead impeded the attacker regardless of how minimum the contact was and under the new law introduced this season penalty and red card were correct if I may add my son in law is not Celtic minded. Hope I haven't bored you.


1.) 27 Nov 2017 23:53:22
Law is the law but not always common sense. The contact was minimal and the penalty was awarded. I think most of us agree a yellow card would have been fair and sensible. However, I also think the player concerned should not have been on the park after the tackle a few minutes earlier so justice was actually done.
On the penalty/ red card, if that is the law then so be it.
Managers and players need to be forced into attending referee/ rules of the game and consequence classes which should include an exam at the end.

2.) 28 Nov 2017 02:47:01
Oldkilly there was no need to let us know your son in law was not Celtic minded as the SFA and UEFA (Shug Dallas) doesn't allow Celtic minded people to make it that far as a ref XD on the subject of yesterday do we know if any retrospective action will be taken on the player for the challenge on Dembele as he received no punishment on the field for it?

3.) 28 Nov 2017 08:00:09
Good post mate. When descisions go against celtic the media bring out ex referees to say why the ref got it right. Won't see any ex refs explaining the pen on Sunday because they will say just what your son in law said. Ps sorry to hear about your health problems good to hear your on the mend.

4.) 28 Nov 2017 17:42:20
Many questions about the awarding of the penalty and the sending off have been answered in the cold light of day . The Motherwell Manager was full of venom on Sunday and very angry that Celtic got Penalty and his player sent off . The MSSM were aghast at the thought Craig Thompson had dirtied his copy book and destroyed his reputation .
Our usual quota of knicker wetters who seem to have to either side with referee or destroy the reputation of a Celtic player or two jumped on the wagon and many disowned Sinclair for diving . Compliance officer didn't see any dive and M'well club now with time to reflect see he didn't dive .
Thing is not long since Sinclair has been racially abused and no doubt the stupid stuff posted by some, will renew attacks on SS.

5.) 28 Nov 2017 22:32:14
This is part of law 12 in rules of the game.

Where a player commits an offence against an opponent within their own penalty area which denies an opponent an obvious goal-scoring opportunity and the referee awards a penalty kick, the offending player is cautioned if the offence was an attempt to play the ball; in all other circumstances (e. g. holding, pulling, pushing, no possibility to play the ball etc. ) the offending player must be sent off.

So you need to ask was Sinclair pulled in the box? If the answer is yes (which he was) , then according to this rule, Thompson got it right.

6.) 30 Nov 2017 11:54:38
Sinclair himself said, he felt a contact and went down, or some words to that effect, well is it not easy enough to check to see if he dived or not, by going onto YouTube and watching the replay, and watching Sinclair's feet and watching the way his stride changes, and then deciding if Kipre tugged him hard enough, to disrupt his stride or Sinclair felt the tug and just fell over, another thing because Kipre tugged Sinclair and made no effort to play the ball, it was a sending of offence according to new rule changes, so the red card was correct, if only they were as strict at all the tugging and holding that goes on at corner kicks, it might stop that carry on.

Certainly wasn’t the idiot who ran onto the park after the winner was scored. For me all of them were brilliant. oldkilly.

Kev T regarding Tierney you are correct about him being great, and until he gets protection from referees he will be seriously injured, some of the tackles on him are a disgrace. oldkilly.

I posted recently that Celtic had an incredible fixture list, since September 23 at Kilmarnock until Rosenberg on November 29 it was 14 games with only 4 at Celtic Park, and now with reaching league cup final it's 16 games and still only 4 at home quite remarkable. oldkilly.

Grey Heid Bhoy I’m led to believe it’s Dermot Desmond’s sons who are Celtic mad and encourage their father to invest in the club and they will continue when he retires. Celtic have survived since 1888 and will continue to do so regardless of who is at the helm, why, because of who we are. oldkilly.
