Sky line up Celtic’s title party

374

Sky announced three consecutive Celtic games will be broadcast live across March and April, one of which is almost certain to be a league-winning occasion. Although Aberdeen could go second by a point if they win their game in hand over Newco, I’m not convinced they have the staying power. McInnes has struggled to replicate the form of last season, perhaps as a consequence of so many of his first team squad out of contract in the summer and looking around for deals.

The first Sky game on the schedule released this morning is the visit of Newco to Celtic Park on Sunday 12 March. Newco have 10 games after this, so should Aberdeen’s challenge drop off, Celtic’s lead would need to be 28 points heading into that game to setup a title decider (loose sense of the word).

We currently have a 19 point lead with a game in hand (against St Johnstone later this month). Win all seven of our league games before 12 March, and we would need Newco to drop six points to allow two Glasgow teams to come together to celebrate the champions on what would be a memorable day for everyone in the city.

Newco have visits to Motherwell, Hearts, Dundee and Inverness before then, as well as home games against Ross County, Hamilton and St Johnstone. Earlier this season they won at Dundee and Inverness, lost at Hearts and drew each of their homes games against Ross County, Hamilton and St Johnstone. They have yet to visit Fir Park on league duty this season.

Although they capitulated last time out against Celtic, Newco played better in December than earlier in the season, so there’s a chance they’ll pick up more at home to Accies, Inverness and County. Their cup and league double-header against Motherwell this month will either take some pressure off, or set them up for a Celtic Park party.

If we don’t win the title that day the roadshow rolls onto Dens Park and then Tynecastle. Newco play a day before us on both occasions, so there’s a chance the title will be won/lost at Ibrox before Celtic play.

    I am an ordinary working man just like you, I earn my money the hard way, by going to remote locations and doing the job that others would rather not from a safety perspective. But i am still alive and I send all my wages to my family… my bonuses, when I get them, they are mine to spend as I please. But i pay a big price for my bonuses so don’t give me crap about social classes. I’m from Glasgow, I have two pairs of shoe.

    And now and again I chose to spend my bonus going to see Celtic. That is when I am not paying my doctors to cure prostate cancer.

    Just reading that currently NATO are taking up the same positions around Russia that Adolf Hitler’s Nazi regime occupied prior to invasion, meanwhile the MSM are telling us Russia are being aggressive, you’ve got to love it eh.

    Big deal about previous presidential conflict of interest of public and private interests, introduced in the 80s. Upsetting the establishment big time here.

    Trump press conference, compelling viewing. He just had a dig at the BBC

     

    ——–

     

    Maybe a Sportsound listener? :-)

  17. Why do reporters ask more than one question, it gives the interviewee the option to choose the one he wants to answer. Pick one question and go with that.

    BBC gets a chance to ask new President a question at his first press conference since the election and proceeds to ask;

     

    “If”………..

     

    Journalism at its’ finest.

  19. Trump kicking ass . Media and intelligence services getting the message -theres a new sherrif in town and things are going to be very different from now.

    Thetimreaper,

     

    Thought he answered most of the questions but dismissed the repeats as the clowns that never paid attention.

     

    No a fan but changing foreign policy as promised can only improve this world, having Intellegent business people rather than generals dictating conditions can only improve our chances.

     

    The conflict of interest issue is/was how Enron and the bush/Clinton regime foreign policy was taking us to the brink of extinction. Like it or no, Trump bringing in cognisant intellegent project managers to manage his projects is a refreshing move for governance, if it’s no a project it’s a routine administration thinking has brought this planet to its knees.
