Ajeti angst, avoid betting on Celtic


I should know better, but the SFA ban on Albian Ajeti was simulation at Rugby Park was as surprising as it was ridiculous.  Killie’s Colin Doyle, went to ground fully committed but was beaten to the ball by Albian.  The keeper clipped the Celtic striker’s heel when he was unable to make contact with the ball without going through Albian.

It is up to the match officials to decide if that was enough to merit a penalty but with contact made in this manner the player should not be punished for going down.  The officials got themselves into a mess for missing the first half penalty on Odsonne Edouard, just as the SFA got into a mess when judging the apparent good character of a player who committed a dangerous act.  We have weak football governance in this country, in case you didn’t notice.

Stephen Robinson resigned as Motherwell manager in the first days of the New Year after a form slump that ended with a 3-0 defeat to Hamilton.  Under new manager, Graham Alexander, the Fir Park side have lost only once (at Pittodrie) in five games, that includes one of the rare occasions Newco have dropped points this season.

There are no easy games for Celtic these days and tomorrow’s will be as challenging as last weekend’s visit of St Mirren.  We have the playing squad to record another comfortable victory, but I suggest you avoid betting on it.

    Are `keepers discouraged from coming off their line at corners? Do they not have a height advantage in that they can use their hands ?


    I only really see Celtic games so I don`t know if other `keepers do come out but ours certainly don`t.




    I think they must be told to stay on their line and let the centre backs deal with it .



    ……er…..wait a minute……..

  7. All these vaccines are highly experimental and the PLC side dinnae need to worry if they made a mistake. Thats sorted that side.

    Fantastic footballing performance?



    When was that?

  9. blantyretim is praying for the Knox family on

    That was very out of the blue from ole B78



    Suppose if we keep sipping alcohol we will be fine

  10. glendalystonsils on




    Well , I’ve had my covid jag but I’ll take your advice and sip alcohol just to make sure .

  11. I bet the supporters with the supportive banner did not come from Campsie area.



    What part of necessary travel is travelling to an individual’s workplace to parade an infantile banner.



    Change is inevitable , but to demean an individual in front of all and sundry is totally out of order.


    I would think a good kick in the baws would not be out of order. Sorry mods.



    HH to all.

    I’m mid 50’s so should be mid summer so I’ll keep drinking till then 😉

  13. lets all do the huddle on

    all medicines represent a risk – especially at an individual level



    folk react differently to different medicines than others



    but there are very strict scientific (not PLC dictated) criteria in play these days before they are allowed for public use



    and i trust the scientists even though i dont always follow their advice – as i scoop yet another beer!



    but its a balance of risk and reward



    and on balance i will definitely take the vaccine when its my turn



    but its not a legal requirement so folk are within their legal rights not too

    i would usually agree with that



    but NL and PL have clearly used the lockdown to stick 2 fingers up to the fans knowing we cant get anywhere near them so they can just sit tight and continue to rake in fortunes that performances dont deserve



    we are getting the pish ripped right out of us



    would this charade still be going on if fans were allowed in the ground, or allowed to remonstrate outside the ground?



    not a chance



    both of them are sitting there giving it a massive ‘get it right up the lot of you’ while counting their cash



    knowing theres fk all we can do about it



    and knowing the 1 person who can do something about it doesnt give a shite

    I’m with greenpinata on this one.


    Sick of the weans in the woolly masks and their infantile banners.



    They can write as many statements as they like, but, imo, the banners are just back and front pages for the rectum and the hun.



    They won’t make a blind bit of difference and serve no purpose other than to massage the ego of the members of the GB.

    I do believe change is needed but I don’t think this is helpful for anyone. Certainly not the team.

    Utter, utter tripe. You should be embarrassed for posting such crap.

    Forgive me for paraphrasing the huns but I couldn’t help thinking “four Bhoys had a banner”. :)

    So how do you go about getting change if you do nothing






    Don’t buy season books.



    Won’t happen though, too much self sacrifice involved.
