Benfica arrive after 3 competitive games

767

Benfica will arrive in Glasgow tomorrow without having played a competitive game since 2 September, when they thumped Nacional 3-0 in Lisbon.  They arranged a friendly against Real Betis on Wednesday in an attempt to prepare them for this week’s Champions League challenge but the lack of meaningful football is less than ideal, especially at a time when clubs are looking to build sharpness.

Celtic were idle for two weeks before Saturday but have played nine competitive games this season compared to Benfica’s three.  They also have the benefit of not having to sacrifice a day’s preparation to travel.

Fitness late in the game, perhaps accentuated by the use of substitutes, could be crucial.  Celtic’s best chance of winning this one will come in the second half. Run the lungs out of them, Celtic.

    Your knowledge on any subject staggers me, anyway

     

     

    Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Thanks for the link to frack nation, very interesting and i look forward to the film. I am a member of friends of the earth, and it looks like Dart are drilling some wells to start the process, in and around Airth, which is causing some stress with some people, in a large part to the film gasland.

     

     

    Am very much one for reading the government / big buisness side of things then reading the ‘green’ reply and forming my thoughts. But since reading some of Bjorn Lomborg ‘The skeptical environmentalist’ papers, it seems that since money and funding play such a massive part in Green organisations now, somewhere along the lines the truth has disappeared now also.

     

     

    I still haven’t seen anything that has made me think differently about the tar sands in Canada, but if you find anything please pass it on.

     

     

    Thanks

    Heading up to pittenweem this weekend. Anyone recommend and fishing spots up that way?

     

     

    Why don’t you Google UK Fishing Tips for fishing around Pittenween?

     

    I hope you catch some fish and if they are too small or uneatable

     

    then put them back with a kiss on the lips like Rex does

     

    Is fishing not all about the bait one uses knowing exactly where to

     

    fish technique and a game of patience, yes?

    I know 4 policemen. Thankfully I believe none of them to be like that.

     

     

    2 traffic; 1 armed response & another who is a top bloke doing a job I know I couldn’t do and many other police officers couldn’t do.

     

     

    I do believe, like in all walks of life, there are those who abuse their positions. The police force is no different. Especially so were members of secret societies hold high office.

     

     

    That said. I met a high rolling police officer today, when I was in a police station discussing a recent breakin at my home when the policeman stated to me, and I quote “if you ever come across a CQNer known as Mickbhoy1888, he was not a good decent policeman. He was excluded from the force for being violent towards civilians and the use of racist language.”

     

     

    So without foundation or corroborative proof of said conversation I have just placed a question over the character of an individual. It’s amazing how easy it is.

     

     

    Still. What is good for the goose is good for the gander.

    time to calm your jets bud.

     

     

    the Trolls dont deserve any comments.

     

     

    keep it lit.

  10. So Moonbeams, Mickybhoy1888 is an ‘Ex’ Old Bill.

     

    That does not surprise me, he should also read the

     

    back of away match football tickets regarding the

     

    Hoops matches where it does not state that there

     

    is a law about alcohol is not allowed to be consumed

     

    travelling home after a match

  11. Only in Scotland they would try that stroke on?

     

    Imagine that going down in England or in any

     

    other Country around Europe & The World

     

    No chance.

     

    What a backward little Country is Scotland

     

    where there is one Law for us and another

     

    for everyone else
