Has the team line-up for Thursday been leaked yet?

Is Brown and Ntcham named in it?

Stengo1888

1.) 20 Oct 2020 11:22:16
If ntcham plays in either Thursday or sundays games it will send me over the fkn edge! Turnbull has to be given a run of games now!


2.) 20 Oct 2020 13:07:10
Thursday team

Barkas
Ajer
Taylor
Duffy
Walsh
Turnbull ( inside right of mid)
Lexalt
Brown
McGregor
Christie
Ajeti

Subs

Eddy
Griff
Ajeti
Ntcham
Turnbull
Bain
Klimala
Moi

Prediction Celtic nil ac milan ( more than nil )


3.) 20 Oct 2020 13:38:16
Thought it was only the Establishment who had Brothers, but clearly Turnbull and Ajeti have also.


4.) 20 Oct 2020 14:34:05
Let's get turnbull in and give him a run he's talented and will show heart unlike that wimp ntcham and we have to start giving soro some game time.


5.) 20 Oct 2020 15:34:10
If Soro comes in and plays well in Brown's position what would Lennon do
Soro seems to have a lot more energy and plays the ball forward.


6.) 20 Oct 2020 15:39:04
Ntcham has had more than enough chances and can’t be trusted to battle when it’s needed.
I will give Elyounoussi one more chance because he at least tried on Saturday.
But he is another one that can usually do more than he is producing.
Also when Edouard comes back he will need to up his game considerably because I feel he is another player who isn’t pulling his weight and it isn’t fair on his teammates.


7.) 20 Oct 2020 15:58:02
For me brown has to be dropped, soro and turnbull rotated instead. Shape changed to 4-4-2 and more play going through middle. I'm beginning to think Bain is a better option in goal. Against Milan I would go

GK Bain

LB Laxalt
CB Welsh
CB Duffy
RB Ajer

LM Moi
CM Soro
CM McGregor
RM Frimpong

ST Ajeti
ST Eddy.


8.) 20 Oct 2020 17:36:33
Phil, I'd have Welsh as RB as he's played there a lot in the Development Squd and hasn't looked out of place and could easily fit into the RCB if going to a 3. I'd also have Christie instead of Moi as without Brown and Ntcham the team would be more fluent and I think he's thrive in that setting. Agree with you about Bain. Another option would be to have Klimala instead of Frimpong as Klimala has more of an attacking threat and likes the RHS, but that may leave that side a bit weak.

So,

Bain

Welsh
Duffy
Ajer
Laxalt

Klimala
Soro
McGregor
Christie

Ajeti
Edouard.


9.) 20 Oct 2020 17:36:49
We aren't going to take brown out of a European game. We need his experience. But I agree he needs to be roated with soro.


10.) 20 Oct 2020 17:48:07
No way will lemon play 2 up top. Where is big Julian? If rumours are right him and lemon had a dust up at training. Was on the bench before the internationals now he has a knock? Interesting. Oh first time posting.


11.) 20 Oct 2020 17:58:45
Cory so what happens next season in your opinion? Offer Brown another contract even although he is not the same player, but because he has experience? The only way for players to get experience is by playing.


12.) 20 Oct 2020 18:59:48
barkas

ajer
welsh
duffy
laxalt

brown

christie
eddy
turnbull
mcgregor

ajeti

4/ 1/ 4/ 1

maybe not in europe but in scotland brown could sit himself moving mcgregor forward were for me he influences the game more. for me that is a good exciting team with the potential to play some fantastic stuff.


13.) 20 Oct 2020 21:09:48
Stengo the Turnbull in the starting line up is the 1 we signed from motherwell . the Turnbull sub is the one that played at st johnstone.

The ajeti in the starting 11 is the fit one that was ready and raring to go ( pictured in Italy) thin as a rake

The one on the bench is the one struggling to keep the pounds off

So there is 2 of each

Nonetheless, that will be the 11 for Thursday!


14.) 20 Oct 2020 22:23:31
There’s been a few imposters already this season Lubo.


15.) 20 Oct 2020 23:08:48
I know Buzz but we need to keep believing until something happens that technically kills off our challenge. We have faced adversity before. This does feel a little different because the quality is questionable. There's depth in terms of head count but quality cover and the right attitude?

That's the battleground for us

Fingers crossed eh?


16.) 21 Oct 2020 00:55:29
Ajer is not a centre back, his best position is right back, he just doesn't have it at centre back and he is too clumsy for midfield, so if Elhamed is unavailable anytime, I would have him as right back, the centre back pairing should have been settled by now, two competent defensively sound centre backs would give the goalkeeper confidence, but we seem to chop and change between one, two, three every game, at the minute I would give Walsh and Duffy a chance, although that's not because I think they might be any good, but because with Julien injured, there is not much choice, but hey ho, why not try them,
Taylor is the best left back we have
so his name should be first on the teamsheet
In midfield I would have McGregor as the holding midfielder with Turnbull, Christie and Soro and with Ajeti and Griffiths up front.


17.) 21 Oct 2020 17:32:46
4.3.3 - 4.5.1

Barkas
Frimpong
Laxalt
Duffy
Ajer

Turnbull
Brown
McGregor

Christie
Ajeti
Elyounoussi.


18.) 22 Oct 2020 14:48:33
Doesn't matter who starts or what formation we play, will take 0-3 to Milan, any more than that it's an embarrassment.


19.) 22 Oct 2020 17:03:14
Bain? Have a word with yourself.


20.) 22 Oct 2020 18:29:06
Stengo

Team is same as Saturday but for klimala and moi out griff and ajeti in.


 

 

07 Oct 2020 12:47:57
Karamoko may go out on loan in January. Amiens sounded out Celtic for a season long loan but Celtic didn't feel the team in the French Ligue 2 was the one they wanted him to go to.

Stengo1888

1.) 07 Oct 2020 12:59:05
Do you know if he wants to stay at Celtic beyond 2021?


2.) 07 Oct 2020 15:01:52
No idea Celtic_mad. It would be good but it'll be more down to his parents and advisers. If there's going to be a restructuring at the end of this season, assuming we do cross the 10 line and more of the established players leave to either test themselves or get more money, then there should be an increased chance that youngsters will then be developed. As I've said a couple or so times before, this Development Squad is the most potent I've seen for years.


 

 

05 Oct 2020 18:01:13
That's Jack Aitchison away to Barnsley on a permanent basis.

Stengo1888

1.) 05 Oct 2020 18:30:44
That's a pity; he never really got a look-in last two seasons and he can't hang around while he falls further down the pecking order.


2.) 05 Oct 2020 19:59:30
Jack is just as good as Klimala, he was never given a chance.


3.) 05 Oct 2020 20:16:48
The current set-up does not seem to give a lot of youngsters a real chance to break-through. Wee seat on the bench here and there and an odd appearance in meaningless games seems the norm?


4.) 05 Oct 2020 21:12:18
Maybe he wasn’t good enough.

{Ed007's Note - I'm not going to slag any young lad that maybe lost his way/focus after losing his dad a couple of years ago at 18 I hope he goes on to have a good career or at least makes a right few quid and makes his family proud.
Considering the amount of strikers we have at the Club he was never going to get near the first team unless he had been an exceptional talent.
A lot of supporters would moan if he was on the bench over a fit LG or Klimala never mind Ajeti.}


5.) 05 Oct 2020 22:11:00
I never knew that about the boy. Let’s hope he puts in a shift down England and makes the most of his career. Hopefully make his old man proud.

{Ed007's Note - 👍


6.) 06 Oct 2020 13:47:55
He was getting good reviews when at Forest Green so maybe a step back from the size of Celtic will give him more opportunities to show what he is capable of.

Jonathan Afolabi has signed a one year extension to his scontract which now will be up to the end of season 2022-23.

Stengo1888

 

 

28 Sep 2020 18:27:43
There's a possibility that Development Squad hopeful, Jonathan Afolabi could be on his way to Dundee in a loan deal. He had a previous loan deal with Dunfermline last season and could be joining up with Daniel Church who is in talks with the Dens Park club after his Parkhead release. Afolabi's contract is due for renewal in 2022.

Stengo1888

1.) 28 Sep 2020 19:58:44
At the start of last season he was fastracked with Frimpong and big things expected, he got a knock which set him back. Another loan will give him game time and experience and hopefully he can come back to challenge for the first team squad next season.


2.) 30 Sep 2020 00:08:22
Great news that the boy had his contract extended.


3.) 30 Sep 2020 17:44:20
He has already scored for dundee.

Ian Murray, the Edinburgh Labour MSP has urged Wee Nippy to postpone the OF derby as he doesn't trust us to behave ourselves with social distancing.

1.) 16 Oct 2020 15:40:44
I actually agreed with her appeal to SLY to screen it free; or even put together an emergency deal with BBC/ STV to share broadcasting for this one-off game to avoid public gatherings?
Too many people and Organizations with power and wealth are far too short sighted, selfish and greedy - when goodwill would prevail.
Millions are suffering hardships, thousands have suffered bereavement and things are not looking too bright on the horizon.
A few high profile good-deeds could give everyone a lift and don't get me started on that auld yin in Buck Hoose that's got more money than God but has not one ounce of compassion or conscience.


2.) 16 Oct 2020 17:40:25
Most folk would still gather I don't know anyone who doesn't have a means to watch it tomorrow in their own home either by subscription or streaming. They should have moved it to sunday at 6pm as some might have had work on Monday and watched it alone so that they are ok for work on monday.


3.) 17 Oct 2020 08:00:13
One of my sons muted the idea of the buying rights for game and putting it on council telly two weeks ago she waits to the last minute we will win by 2 or more hh.


 

 

14 Oct 2020 18:18:03
Anybody interested in a free ride in a helicopter flight for 4 people after the game on Saturday?!

I'm still looking for 2 more people to join us. We leave later Saturday (October 17) from The Heliport on the Clyde, and will fly over Loch Lomond and then over to Troon for dinner and then on a yacht for supper and an overnight.

Following morning we'll have breakfast and then we'll do a flight over the Northern Irish coastline and returning to Troon for lunch. We will then fly back to the Heliport.

If interested please pm me.

Preferably someone with a helicopter and yacht, otherwise we can't go.

Stengo1888

Stengo, where is Northern Ireland? Is it near the north of?


2.) 14 Oct 2020 18:29:05
All be doing the helicopter if wee win all right 😂😂your more than welcome to join me 😂😂😂.


3.) 14 Oct 2020 18:31:54
Close enough JFP.


 

 

14 Oct 2020 15:39:53
Will Calmac play tonight? And will Ryan Jack take him out with a clumsy, honest tackle?

Stengo1888

1.) 14 Oct 2020 18:27:11
Are they not in the same team?


2.) 14 Oct 2020 18:38:35
Of course they are but would that not stop Jack from thinking it's a case of mistaken identity when he goes for the same ball as Calmac?


3.) 14 Oct 2020 22:20:15
The strips help.


4.) 15 Oct 2020 22:00:18
With us being drawn against Sparts Prague tonights Scotland game will let us see about 5 or 6 of their players playing for the Czechs.

Anyone seen the UFC Mortal Kombat kick issued by Joaquin Buckley? Would love to see how El Coo deals with that from big Duffy. If you haven't seen it it's worth digging out and watching.

Was some knock out mate 😂😂.


2.) 13 Oct 2020 00:54:59
It was some force he took the guy out with. Missed with his first kick spun round and boom.

Aye geez a puddy to I knock you out mate.


4.) 13 Oct 2020 13:31:53
Jacky chaned his ass you won’t see a better knock out than that.


5.) 13 Oct 2020 21:13:29
Just wait till Saturday afternoon duff.


 

 

09 Oct 2020 20:05:43
had a look at some previous OF games and noticed that Sevco run hard and fast at defenders hoping they can get free kicks just outside the box or in it where it's easy with their style to get penalties.

We run hard and fast into the box and end up with yellow cards for diving.

Stengo1888

1.) 09 Oct 2020 23:14:20
I watched the last old firm game and we skelped them 3_0 with goals from Mulgrew, Commans and Hooper.

Fans never stopped singing whole game.

You've also got to ask yourself if the airlines are sanitizing their planes well enough to prevent the possibility of the virus lurking anywhere within the plane. You're on a flight between an hour and 10 (? ) so there's a very real danger it could be there, especially as the airline industry is being financially savaged and cost cuts right left and central.

If Edouard is on the bench he would need to wear a mask. If he goes on as a sub he would need to nip down to the dressing room and wash his hands for 20 seconds with soap and hot water.

We have to take a step back from all of this and look at the basic facts.

We are not an insular, backwater Scottish club. We are a worldwide respected football club with a massive history and a first class business model.

As a club of this magnitude we should have first class leadership and first class coaching staff who in turn should be filtering down to the players motivation, enthusiasm and maximising and nurturing ability.

With the status and standing of the club, the players should be proud to pull on the jersey and to give 100% at all times. The supporters pay their wages and all of the first-team squad earn well in excess per week what supporters may earn in two or three years, and they should understand that.

A club of this magnitude should have succession planning, ensuring that any fringe or Development players are coached to come into the first team seamlessly when called upon.

The Board has a corporate responsibility to ensure the standing of the club is maintained in the marketplace and and they also have a collective accountability to the fans who pay to make things happen.

None of us on this page probably know eactly what is happening behind the scenes. We can hear and read but there appears to be something which is not right. Somewhere down the line there appears to be unhappiness, demotivation and anxiety. This cannot be allowed to go on as all it does is compromises the good name of Celtic. Something is clearly not right - and something clearly has to be done, and quickly.

Was it Lennon who signed them? Or was it someone buying them and then getting him to do the business and make them money?
