Ange hasn't ruled out new faces coming in this winter window, with a week remaining what position do we all think needs strengthened? If any?

24 Jan 2022 20:22:08
Ange has given more bad news on Celtic TV.
He said that Ideguchi will be missing for "a little while also".
I thought it was obvious that Ideguchi was injured because he couldn't put any weight on his foot.
I love Ange for giving us our club back but I find it frustrating when time and time again he mentions a player is okay or he will be back soon and then the player is out for extra weeks or months.
Ange is doing everything on his own and help with communication and accurate updates would be helpful before he does his interviews.
Sorry about the rant but something better must be put in place to stop inaccurate information being given out.
It's not just interviews after games, false information is given throughout the week.

24 Jan 2022 21:07:27
I'll phone him and demand he keeps you with upto date correct info, that's staggering to think your not in the loop 👌.

I’ve got a better idea Davie,
Since you have his number, you can get the correct information and then keep us in the loop. 👍.

Jullien a few times and Forrest a few times, for starters.
But who is giving him inaccurate information?

hamstring injuries, is it the training,?

As I said ferguson admitted it get in there faces by any means and to say it wasn't fair as we lost 3 key figures it was brutal how can he deplore that statement the man is a clown put wee calmac in the hospital the ref should have been stronger if they play that way it must be brutal for other teams in that league.

24 Jan 2022 19:59:26
I listened to one call on the phone-in and Uncle Hugh admitted that Don Robertson failed to protect the Celtic players.
That’s how obvious it’s become.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jan 2022 20:31:38
He called it Primitve football Buzz
Everyone knows it was Ferguson
& Malcoms instructions to put the boot in
When the referee gave them free reign at it the tackles got worse as the game went on
Hearts will use the same tactics so we must get right in about them from the first whistle.

The tackle on Guchi was a shocker, If I'm right and he is the boy on loan from Partick then Alan Rough called it before the game began by saying that Celtic will need to watch themselves with that boy as he had been previously booked or Red carded in about 10 seconds in one game.
To be honest on the Calmac injury, I don't think there was any malice in it as it seemed more like 2 players going for a ball and colliding.
Everyone laughed at Sevco when they sent there wee letter after the sheep game but it's time that we had someone on our board who has the balls to start calling out the SFA and the refs on the lack of protection.
I watched Hugh Mcdonald today and he was spot on when he mentioned that if a tackle is worth a yellow in the 60th minute then it's worth a yellow in the 1st minute.
He also mentioned that he was told by an ex ref that the ref's in Scotland are far too scared to book a player to quickly, especially in big games as the might need to send someone off.
He used the tackle on Calmac (I think in the 1st min of the cup final against Hibs) as an example where he said if that had been abroad then the player would have been booked straight away and would have been lucky to stay on the park.

Ange has told Celtic TV that Callum was feeling better today.
He also mentioned that “Hopefully his recovery isn’t too long”.
Ange might give details about any necessary surgery in his press conference tomorrow.

The only thing I saw was an ex-footballer suggestive if he had the same injury he'd be out for 6-8 weeks. But that's just a shot in the dark statement, it means nothing. I'm not sure about concussion in football but certainly, in Rugby, he'd likely be out for a week or two for recovery, but he'd potentially make the derby in that instance. Just hope whatever injury it is he makes a good recovery and we'll see him back when he is ready.

I think the differing ways they are tackling the problem of incompetent refereeing in Scotland says a lot about the widening gulf between the Boards of Celtic and Rangers. They should, of course, be acting together on this matter, along with the other clubs in the SPL, putting pressure on, and finding a way to bring the standards up, be that via VAR, or by allowing referees to account for themselves in open discussion or whatever they can come up with.
Instead the Rangers Board make it tribal and breast beating by pandering to the worst and lowest level of their support. I honestly don't think the 'old' Boards of Rangers would have behaved in this manner. At least Bankier works 'behind the scenes' and doesn't make it some sort of p. ing competition. It (the referee problem) is far too acute for that. It will ruin Scottish Football and one or two footballers careers if it is not tackled properly.
For the record, I don't think there is any conspiracy. Just incompetence.

24 Jan 2022 18:15:58
no conspiracy you cleary did not see dallas emails or dougie McDonalds lies or the jim farry incident much more facts do you need.

Hi UI
I do recall Dallas’s sectarian e-mail ‘jokes’, and I do think greater action should have been taken on that by the authorities (sometimes apologies should not be accepted without retribution) and I do recall the Bunnet taking wee ‘overblown with his own importance’ to court and winning. I can’t recall the Dougie MacDonald incident immediately, but I will research it.
However Farry and Dallas incidents are not, in my opinion, symptoms of an anti Celtic refereeing conspiracy, just stupid people doing stupid things. Farry paid the price and Dallas will never live it down (I hope) .
Don’t get me wrong, I readily accept there is and always will be bias among some (Sutton pro Celtic and McCoist pro Rangers for example, however as long as they keep it within the bounds of reason and humour, there’s not a lot of harm in that) . but conspiracy . no I don’t think so .

It was incompetence by the SPFL and Neil Doncaster to allow Douglas Park to threaten Neil Doncaster and for him to go unpunished.
That’s why Sevco think they can do what they want because they can and they do.
Neil Doncaster said at the time it was the worst and most threatening behaviour he had encountered in over 20 years of his career.
Douglas Park should’ve been reported to the SFA and a full investigation should have be held against the Sevco Director at that time and who is now the Sevco Chairman.
Also why was Stewart Robertson allowed back on the SPFL board after he leaked sensitive information in his dossier, which turned out to be a laughing stock.
But Stewart Robertson still crossed a line and he also went unpunished.
Robertson is Lee Wallace in disguise.
It’s about time the Scottish Football Authorities started implementing their own rules.

I totally agree . incompetent and amateurish, but it’s not a conspiracy.
We (Scottish Football‘s admin as well as referees) need a professional overhaul . soon as possible

Evening All

I've been out the picture for a week or so and lost the place here with injuries but what's occurring? If it wasn't for bad luck we'd have none.

McGreggor fractured cheekbone and out for weeks and Kyogo to go under knife for hamstring? Is that right? Massive losses if that's the case.

Add that to Turnbull and whoever else. Any updates Buzz?

I didn't see the Alloa game but saw a few images of tackles. That looked a reall bad one on the Japanese lad? The referees seriously need to get a grip and protect football players in Scotland. When you see that image and the one on Turnbull it's a repeat of treatment Scott Brown and KT got en-route to 9IAR booted up and down the park for two seasons.

Why are Celtic as a club not speaking out about lack of protection from referees or am I missing something?

24 Jan 2022 17:24:29
Sorry JFP, I would just be speculating.
There was a false report yesterday that Callum had surgery for a fractured cheekbone.
Celtic are keeping everything close to their chests these days.
It wasn’t that long ago, when everything that happened inside Celtic Park and Lennoxtown was being leaked.

PS: we need an enforcer on the park with an edge and Lewis Ferguson would fit the bill.

24 Jan 2022 18:04:23
JFP, I've read one story suggesting Calmac could be out for between 4-7 games but I'd imagine this will be dependent on the operation as well as him possibly wearing a protective mask on his return.

We'll hopefully find out more from Ange's next press conference.

Guys the "constructive SFA talks" have already paid dividends with one of their own referees not getting picked for SPFL games on Sevco say so.
But we all know the REAL REASON for their SFA talks is the Derby game in February, the officials have all been warned NOT to give Celtic anything, they are getting worried we are closing the points gap and will resort to any underhand trick to gain an advantage.

{Ed007's Note - If you're talking about Clancy, Tim the refs for this midweek round of fixtures were appointed before the Aberdeen v TRIFC match.}

24 Jan 2022 12:21:40
Referee supervisor Crawford Allen doesn’t help himself, when he confirms the referee for the Glasgow Derby and then changes his mind.
Why did he do that and Why No explanation to the change.
On the SPFL website it’s still showing Bobby Madden will referee the Glasgow Derby on January 2nd.
The Glasgow Derby appointment will get confirmed before lunchtime tomorrow, along with the referee appointments for this weekend.
Basically we will know soon if Clancy has been dropped for Premiership games this weekend and next midweek.
I believe Crawford Allen has got to back Clancy, the way John Fleming refused to back Willie Collum back in 2019.

24 Jan 2022 13:02:23
ED007 and Buzz I believe Hibs and I think Motherwell asked for a meeting with Mr Allen and basically were told there was no mechanism to grant such a face to face meeting yet Sevco were granted one immediately. There are rumours that Ian Bankier is "working behind the scenes" whatever that means, with the SFA, whereas Sevco make sure e everyone and their dog knows when they meet with SFA, it is about time our Board went about things more directly also.

{Ed007's Note - When did that happen with Hibs and Motherwell?}

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jan 2022 13:57:17
ED007 your Irish friend with the 3 names mentioned it on his site.

{Ed007's Note - Oh well, it must be true then 🤦‍♂️

I find it funny that the Sevco directors have severely overreacted because it shows they are struggling to handle the pressure.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Jan 2022 16:39:27
It was the Scottish media rag The Daily Rectum who tried to make out that sevco had achieved some form of justice to appeal to the bottom dwellers A Red card and a sending off had them writing letters Could you imagine the outcry if 3 of their players being injured then taken off due to thuggish tackles? I have seen about 5 or 6 straight red card tackles yet not 1 was sent off. If some of our players stood upto it and dished it back out it's a certainty they would be red carded.

Agree1 0Disagree

25 Jan 2022 00:32:47
Buzz I don't come on often reason being you guys always blame the referee, grow balls, every team get decisions against them, move on .

{Ed007's Note - So out of everything we talk about on here you don't get involved because some posters talk about refs? Sorry we're not meeting your standards, maybe start threads about what you do want to talk about.
There's not many Celtic forums not talking about refereeing performances over the last few days so I hope you're saying the same on them.}
