Celtic coaches and the March Grand Tour

453

The March international break is one of the most important of the club season.  It is when managers and coaches get to take a proper look at the players targeted for the summer transfer window.  The Celtic management team will have looked at dozens of players on video since the January window closed, but, this break from domestic football, gives them the chance to do the Grand Tour, their last opportunity before the end of the season.

Having despatched his nearest two rivals away from home, with 10 men, in recent weeks, Brendan Rodgers took enormous pressure off the remainder of the season, which now largely consists of preparing for next month’s Scottish Cup semi-final.  Energies will have made a significant switch towards preparing for July’s Champions League qualifiers.

Getting these decisions right can be the difference between success and failure; Brendan will have used his ‘time off’ wisely.

    It was indeed. Unfortunately, too many forget, or choose to forget, how it was won.

    Paul, i admire your faith but, when I read “Brendan will have used his ‘time off’ wisely,” I got an image of him on an inflatable li-lo, in the middle of a swimming pool with a cigar in one hand and an ostentatiously large cocktail in the other.

  10. Attitudes to cheating, compare and contrast.

     

     

    “I am shocked and bitterly disappointed by the news from South Africa,” said Turnbull. (Australian Prime Minister)

     

     

    “It seems beyond belief the Australian cricket team have been involved in cheating. Our cricketers are role models and cricket is synonymous with fair play. How can our team be engaged in cheating like this? It beggars belief.”

     

     

    *****

     

     

    “My appeal to Rangers and HMRC is – can’t we agree on a sum. . . . . . . Because Scottish football, even Celtic, needs Rangers. . . . .allow Rangers to pay their obligations but continue as a vibrant part, not just of Scottish football,but of Scottish culture”. (Alex Salmond, then First Minister)

     

     

    Of course, one was only tax-dodging, the other was the heinous crime of ball tampering.

    Reminds me of the graffiti in the chaps bogs of the University library….placed just above the bog-roll holder………

     

    ” Arts Degrees – Please Take One”

     

     

    …the memory of it sitll makes me laugh.

    The scale of cheating is quite incredible when you see all they names layed out.

     

    This toppled with all the clubs that they cheated and all the creditors they cheated.

     

    This was fraud on a humongous scale in so many ways.

  15. Operation p**s off the Tims is in full flow now I see. Scotty Sinclair is returning to the greatest league in world with Brendan (he’s not gonna be here forever you know says the Hun). TR is stalling on a contract KT has packed his bags. According to the hurting huns in the SMSM we will be doing well to field a team next season. Next thing they will be telling us is that chap Morelos is worth £11 million………….ah wait a minute.

    While I can’t disagree with you about international fortnights in general,this one has been a beaut.

     

     

    The CQN family has warmly welcomed back one of our own,and opened hearts and souls in the process.

     

     

    We have let our friend know that he is not alone.

     

     

    That’s what friends do. And they are only friends because of this site.

     

     

    Walk on,and You’ll Never Walk Alone.
