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.

  1. The Green Brigade become more embarassing by the day. They are just giving the SMSM ammunition to undermine us. They certainly don’t speak for me and I DO want our manager to go.

    I enjoy a wee gin and just ordered a couple of bottles of Quadruple Treble gin along with a flavoured one for our stocks.



    I think you’re way off on the vaccine discussion. Vaccines have been fast tracked as at least the Oxford one is a derivative of their SARS and MERS vaccine research. Vaccines these days are safe. Thalidomide was a disaster which happened a long time ago. An anti sickness pill for pregnant women if I remember well. Nothing to do with vaccines.

  3. ERNIE LYNCH-well it would be hard for me this season.


    Haven’t we been told that poor ST sales only mean more players being sold to make up the shortfall

  4. lets all do the huddle on

    they dont claim to speak for you



    they dont know who you are



    and i think we have done more to undermine ourself this season than the SMSM could ever have dreamed about

  5. Does anyone here remember ‘Four Feather Falls’ and ‘Supercar’ from early 1960s television? I cannot convince my wife about them. Earliest she can remember is Stingray and Captain Scarlet.

    I’m wondering how many folk will login tomorrow, don’t think you need to login early to ensure access.

    Meet you in the Keys at 11.30 , I’ve a couple of spares

  9. Read an article this week that suggests Lennon almost certainly won’t be in charge next year but this season is such an unsalvageable trainwreck, DD doesn’t want the new manager associated with it at all and Lennon’s departure is being slowly “managed”.



    Don’t know how true this is and not sure this is preferable to a new guy coming in early to assess the squad but either way, I think Neil Lennon will be here until the end of the season.

  10. I’m conflicted



    we knew they’d cheat tae fugg



    they’re cheating lying scum



    where do you go with that one ?

    Hopefully we can all catch up later on in the year mucker and get blitzed .



    Anyway the Celtic are a bit crap the now ?




  13. I think the game plan for GB is to embarrass the board into being more transparent. If the fans knew what was/will be happening I think the banners would stop. No point in a banner if you know for sure Lenny is being replaced

  17. It takes a bit of effort to get to Lennoxtown.



    Neil has the Best interests of the Club at heart.
