Anywhere but Warsaw


My thought on looking at our potential opponents this morning was ‘Anywhere but Warsaw’.  Our man Zbyszek tells me Legia were awful in the first leg in Warsaw against St Pat’s, where they drew 1-1 courtesy of a late goal, but we’ve been there.  Henrik Larsson & Co. drew 0-0 against St Pat’s at Celtic Park before winning 0-2 in the return leg.  St Patrick’s have a big job ahead if they are to progress.

A trip to Ireland on Champions League qualification duty for the second year running would suit Celtic, especially our Irish-based supporters, but my money is on a more testing trip to Poland; Ronny’s pulse should have quickened on the news.

Zbyszek doesn’t reckon have what it takes to eliminate Celtic. All being equal, that may be the case, but summer football will be unpredictable for both clubs.

I am, of course, being completely disrespectful to KR Reykjavik, who we annihilate next week.

    I prefer to think that ‘agreed’ is understood,rather than rarely used.



    As in,everyone agreed with my last post. No one dissented.



    Naw,mate-everyone ignored yer pash!



    Subtle difference….

  2. From BBC. Not fair.





    An Australian couple, Irene Burrows and George Burrows, have lost family members in both of the Malaysia Airlines disasters this year. Their son and daughter-in-law (Rodney and Mary) went missing with flight MH370. Now they have lost more family members with MH17: their son-in-law’s daughter and her husband, Maree and Albert Rizk.

    I cannot see where the confidence comes from in you Bhoys who think we will win big on Tuesday we may well win but our forwards need to learn to be more clinical. I still would like to see a stronger midfield than the one on show in Iceland this current Celtic squad are still trying to learn what RD and JC are trying to teach them so a bit of caution would not go amiss.H.H.

    We completely controlled and dominated that match without playing well. It was a dry night. I would expect we’ll win by 3 or 4 on Tuesday.



    Not confident for Legia though. Particularly if we go there to attack and I would expect RD may well do.

    Just read this post from a hun on the Evening Times when he talks about going into admin



    “Had we not owned our own ground at that point we would be at the mercy of the wolves of the market place ie; asset-stripping the clubs resources until the Rangers well had been drawn to the dirt. An administration scenario in 2012, where we did not own our own stadium, could have liquidated the Rangers FC along with it’s previous owner.”



    Deluded or what……………

  6. Bedtime for me



    Read few arguents but from what i see



    Hamas are a supposed terriorist group made up of locals with limited firepower



    Israel ary are 4th largest in the world with top training, hi tech equipment and plenty of money



    Who has killed more civillians.. ?



    Some on here seem to think if you support palestine you support hamas.. Wrong



    Israel offer for ceasefire this week.. Good PR work.



    Victory to palestine

    To be fair-ish…he may have had some sort of point re the last time it happened.


    But he obviously doesn’t see too far beyond his Stickie coupon in terms of what the future may hold for the old 2012-15 FOD RIP!

    Just had a look at the fields for Hamilton races,looks like a good night oooooooooooot for those going.

    Good afternoon from a scorching Nordrhein Westfalen. The Legia/St Pat’s draw is a difficult one to decide on. My head says St Pat’s but my heart says Legia as I would probably be able to get to that game from here, seeing I fell off my bike on Sunday night and apparently fractured my radius, to be confirmed next week. I cannot work and that would give me free time to go to the game.


    Looking at the results last night the name of S Moses Daddy caught my eye, who scored a hat trick for Dukla Trencin against Vojvodina. He is is a 5′ 6″ left winger who comes from Nigeria and was with Ajax who failed to sign him permanently – they should have stuck with him instead of Derk.


    BTW Awe_naw, the injury will not prevent me going to Hamburg so will see you next week. I’ll e-mail you later.



    Hail! Hail! PMTYH

  12. How do we feel when we see ‘Juvederm – Trusted Face Fillers’ advertising on CQN?






    Still, at least it’s not Gregg’s Trusted Face Filler I’ve signed on to see!



    HH jamesgang


    Just a wee reminder for anyone without a ticket for Tuesday.



    WEEFRATHETIM is sadly unable to attend the match but is happy to post it out FOC to a good home.



    If you are interested,contact me on






    and I will pass the details on to him.




  14. I’d prefer St Pats to Legia.



    Think it’s a tough draw for us. But, to be honest, if you got Legia in the group stage you’d be delighted, so if we are serious about the CL we need to be able to take care of a team like that.



    I imagine both Legia and St Pat’s groaned when they drew us.

    Seen that myself, nearly spat my tea over the computer reading it lol


    Deluded so they are…



    My personal fave line is “An administration scenario in 2012, where we did not own our own stadium, COULD have liquidated the Rangers FC along with it’s previous owner.”



    Could? Could? hahahahaha

  17. Malone Bhoy. Re. Teodorczyk. Maybe Yes, maybe No. Very tough playing striker who made good improvement of the game last season. Best or second best Lech Poznan player.

  18. Zbyszek 13:42



    We all know internet videos are dangerous but looks tall, strong enough, good with the ball, good in the air and decent pace. Looks like he gets in the 6 yard box as well.





    Hope yer fit,well and back in good order PDQ.



    Yer tipping service is poor otherwise!

  20. Malone Bhoy Your verdict on the player is right. I thought he was moving to Bundesliga.

  21. Zbyszek






    Haven’t heard of anything Celtic related. Just had a look at the league and thought he could fit our profile. Screaming out for a Miroslav Klose type player.

  22. I’ve seen Legia a few times in recent seasons and I’m impressed by Radovic. He looks like the kind of guy who ‘makes things happen’. Caught the last 30 mins of the match the other night and was surprised at how St.Pats kept catching them on the break- they should have scored another goal before Legia’s late surge and subsequent equaliser. Still, I think the Poles will be our next opponents somehow.

    I’ve also shown the Wee Mhan Lubo controllong it with his erchie on the touchline versus hertz. he does it sometimes. often by accident!

    IIRC,he made that comment after our home leg against Blackburn.

    Thanks for posting the Henrik interview.



    What an outstanding human being the man is.

    Did Henrik call the ’97-’98 Title ‘shit’






    Lost in translation. I think he was intimating that it would have been shit had the deid shits won TIAR.
