Apparently we have conceded four penalties already this season and it's still September.
Obviously we have defensive issues that need to be addressed, but the interpretation of The Honest Mistake Merchants will also be a factor in those given and conceded.
Both penalty incidents yesterday would have been ball-to-hand before the new 'interpretations', but the Livingston player actually stopped a goal bound shot and was excused, whereas the official gave a PK as soon as it had hit Ajer on the arm.
I don't know anyone who can slide into a block - at pace - with their hands behind their back without risking injury? It's an instinctive balancing and protection reflex to be in that body shape, not a deliberate 'diving save'. I fully expect more of the same to come.

Every penalty we have gave away has been a penalty not because of operation stop the 10 or the honest mistake brigade are out to get us or whatever mince is going on in your head but because we are very poor defensively. Barkas looks awful imo, that's twice he has been beat from distance now.


2.) 20 Sep 2020 14:39:14
Agree about the pens malky but feck me the best keeper in the world would not have stopped that imo he's done not too much wrong.


3.) 20 Sep 2020 14:49:13
Mally
Re barkas not so sure

I think he needs to settle

I fear he is already playing with pressure and that can galvanise or destroy

Time will tell . he is young

What's in front of him doesn't always help.

FF was always good for a penalty save, and earned us a few points and maybe even a trophy? Barkas is more like Craig Gordon with them and I think one might hit off him; but I am not getting on his case.


5.) 20 Sep 2020 15:14:04
Its weird. for me . he simply doesn't fill the goal . he could do with adding a few pounds and maybe playing with those hands that people put on st the American football.


6.) 20 Sep 2020 16:36:18
On barkas he had the best first touch at the club. Maybe he can play left back! Think it's more the defense that are the problem. All over the place including the pub league defender. Needs sorted asap.

Had a wee quick swatch at SLY to see if we had made any progress with the Doughty lad from Charlton; but apparently:- Gareth Bale got up at 7am this morning had orange juice and Frosties for breakfast - never finished all the OJ, then went for a crap (using twelve sheets of Andrex) had a 'pits and baws' wash, then was taken to a waiting private jet in Madrid in a limo driven by Miguel Lopez (father of six) etc etc etc
Feck Sake Man! That's Why We Hate SLY.

Naw that’s why we need independence.

Just reading Ben Davis from Preston is signing a pre-contract agreement with us in January, for next summer. Is that because we will only have Duffy for the one season and we are preparing for that? Or what?

Ajer leaving more likely.

Two items have now been just reported 1) 300 home fans will be allowed to attend Ross County v Celtic on Saturday as part of the test case and Aston Villa have just signed Watkins from Brentford for £33m and that might suggest their apparent interest in Eddy will subside?

Celtic_mad

1.) 08 Sep 2020 16:16:34
£33million for Watkins? world's gone and lost itself.


2.) 08 Sep 2020 16:36:17
My god what is eddie worth realistically if he is rated at 33mill?


3.) 08 Sep 2020 20:07:23
133million.


4.) 08 Sep 2020 21:17:41
Maybe sell Im like a house, offers over £50 million 😊.

Something I am noticing, watching our recent games 'behind closed doors', with zero crowd intimidation/ noise; is the amount of decisions that referees give based on players 'squealing' or team-mates reacting and technical staff in the dugout shouting the odds - having influence.
Seen it at Tannadyce, Kilmarnock and in the Ferencvaros game and 'I know officials need little prompting up here but our players and bench need to catch-on.

Our players and staff do the exact same.


2.) 08 Sep 2020 11:13:45
It's probably why the televised games across the land have artificial noise. Some of the performances are embarrassing.

Lennon is either too stupid too, stubborn or too unprepared to upset certain players and the reluctance to play to our obvious strengths, may not affect today's result but it will damage our entire season.

We certainly draw these things out; it's like two auld codgers playing penny brag (and I should know) . This position should have been urgently addressed the minute Bolingoli went AWOL and here we are five games later and still fannying about.

Neil Lennon does (and says) what he is told and that's the type of manager Lawell will always hire - unless DD intervenes.

Even when he came back and scored in the latter stages of the 9-in-a-row, there were signs he was never going regain his 40 goal vintage best challenge and injury apart, his discipline is still very suspect.
A lot may depend on Eddy staying; but with Ajeti, Klimala and Elyounnoussi in front of him at present, he is not even on the bench.
Maybe a loan-move to Hibs or similar would work for both parties?

Lennon has to take the initiative and responsibility away from Broony as I believe he is 'un-droppable' at present and it will cost us.
Whether he does not trust the rest to do the job, or he is too loyal; there has to be common sense here when to select Broony and when not.
Home games against bottom clubs should be a no-brainer, where Cal-Mac can do the job perfectly well, with Bitton, Soro, or Ntcham as a second holding player if needed?

It can only be good for him and the club to develop his skills in a competitive league. Really hope he makes the breakthrough after this?

To be fair the wee teams are used to very little atmosphere and this situation helps them when they come to play us - particularly when Celtic are struggling to find their best team, formation and form - while part of the reason players join Celtic is to perform in front of 60,000 at Celtic Park (especially in big games) .
I'm not saying it's an excuse for the performances (which have still put us top of the league btw) , but it's a factor in motivation and even attitude, when every game seems like a training exercise?
