Quantcast

Celtic looking for 10 in a row

204

The biggest shock of Jock Stein’s era was Celtic’s 4-1 defeat to Partick Thistle in the 1971 League Cup Final.  Thistle were 4-0 up after 36 minutes while Kenny Dalglish managed Celtic’s only reply, 20 minutes from time.

Since then we have been drawn against Thistle seven times in this competition, wining each of the nine games (two early 80s ties were two legged).  A 2002-quarter final at Celtic Park went to penalties after a 1-1 draw, with Mo Sylla hitting the 18th and winning kick.

To great delight around Firhill, Gary Caldwell was relieved of his duties this week; with Ian McCall leaving Ayr United to return to the club he last managed eight years go.  The ‘new manager bounce’ is real, but even McCall will be glad to get tomorrow’s quarter final at Celtic Park over with.  Bottom of the table after six games, Saturday’s trip to Inverness is vastly more important.

A tenth successive win over Thistle in this tournament would send the holders to a Hampden semi-final in search of their 10th domestic successive trophy.

    No , old son.

     

    You`re the chump.

     

     

    By personal I was referring to you asking about MY tax affairs.

     

     

    Morals ? LLoyd George? John Major ? JFK ?

     

     

    Two year old ?

     

    All gone silly now.

     

    No logical reply. Solution?

     

    Insult.

  2. I know this is pedantic, but when you are judged to have done something illegal, are you not then charged with some sort of offence? por cierto

    Where did I try and defend Lloyd George, Major or JFK and their LACK of Morals…Show me where I tried to DEFEND ANY Politician no matter what party or Country..in ANY of MY Posts ?

     

     

    I wouldnt trust Johnson or Mogg etc to open a Crisp Poke.

     

     

    Johnson has been sacked TWICE for LYING, and yet again he has been caught “Bang to Rights”, and yet ( for some)…INTEGRITY, HONESTY and A Distinct LACK of Morals in a Brit PM…….Shouldnt Matter ?

    You`d need a lawyer , but perhaps

     

     

    Illegal is against the law . Ergo actionable.

     

    Unlawful . Perhaps outwith the law ?

    Integrity ? Honesty ?

     

    Politicians.

     

    Seriously ?

    Wow CQN’ers fawning over the decision of an unelected bunch of ancient * youngest 57 ” privileged, white, elitest, fancy dressed cronies who have little or no appreciation of real life.

     

     

    This was about the rule of law and no one (including the PM) being above it. Brexiters have talked a lot about democracy and parliamentary sovereignty so if they are genuine democrats they should be delighted.

  10. FRANKTERRY,

     

     

    I have never understood how the Brexiteers could be so demanding of the return of Parliamentary Sovereignty and when Parliament exercises such, they say Parliament is acting undemocratically.

  11. Frankly i have more interest and concern about the poor people losing their jobs at Thomas Cook and the poor passengers who have had their dreams shattered. Ordinary people who scrimped and saved.

     

     

    Not to mention the obscene bonus payouts to failed executives.

     

     

    I fret about elites on all sides of the political divide and the unfortunate fact that our lawmakers and those who dispense the law are so out of touch with the people it’s frightening.

     

     

    I’m so glad I’ve got Celtic.

    Unlawful is breaking a law of the land

     

     

    Illegal is a big sick bird

     

     

    Note: the word ‘outwith’ is not a real word ‘outwith’ Scotland which ironic 😊

  13. Apologies Frankterry I never saw your post.

     

    However my last post is pertinent to your post.

     

     

    Cheers and HH.

    Indeed, it’s almost like all their talk of ‘democracy’ was in reality just a load of bullshit…

    Do you think Brexit played any part in this? Because the people running Thomas Cook certainly did.

    I am a SINGLE, ELIGIBLE BACHELOR thru CHOICE…Ya Chump !

     

    If I fancy any Woman…whats that got to do with any lack of Morals ?

     

     

    Since your on about lack of Morals…….did you desert your weans to feck off elsewhere ?

     

    Asking for clarity.

  16. On Hols in Torremolinos just logged in for a few minutes to get a Celtic fix. Picked the wrong site. Anyhow Reserves are leading 2 to 1 last time I looked, 2 good Irish Bhoys scored Oko Flex & Afolabi.

  17. GENE on 24TH SEPTEMBER 2019 3:08 PM

     

    I can see Gordon Hayes Rogic and Bayo starting tomorrow

     

     

    **************

     

    are they playing back up to Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young?🤦‍♂️

     

     

    I think you are probably right; i’d go with:-

     

     

    Gordon

     

    Bauer Julienn Elhamed Hayes

     

    Ntcham Brown

     

    Morgan Rogic Elouannoussi

     

    Bayo

     

     

    Gives some a rest(Ajer, Christie, Forrest , McGregor), gives others a bit more fitness/game time

     

     

    I may have gone too far though!

  18. MACJAY1 FOR NEIL LENNON on 24TH SEPTEMBER 2019 2:58 PM

     

    ……………

     

    Your at it again…WHERE in ANY of my Posts have I defended ANY Politician of ANY Party who is a PROVEN LIAR ?

     

    Obviously, clutching at straws is your Forte !

     

    Johnson has been caught “BANG to RIGHTS”…Yet again…..its not MY fault that hes feckin hopeless at lying….what part of being caught “Bang to rights” do YOU NOT understand ?

  19. CORKCELT on 24TH SEPTEMBER 2019 3:18 PM

     

    ……………

     

    your on the right site mate…its others who are not only on the wrong site, but are in another world.

  20. It’s actually 3 to 2 for Reserves now 63 minutes gone. Harper got our 3rd. Morton then scored a penalty. Karamoko has just come on.

  21. ODSONNE EDOUARD has hit back at Charlie Nicholas over his goal celebration dig.

     

     

    Former Celtic star Nicholas admitted the lack of emotion the Frenchman shows when he scores irritates him.

     

     

    But Edouard has popped back at the Sky Sports pundit over his claim.

     

     

    He wrote on Twitter: “I celebrate my goals how I want..if you don’t like it. That’s not my problem.

     

     

    Hoops hero Chris Sutton also backed up the striker by responding to his tweet.

     

     

    He said: “Quite right…”

     

     

    Speaking in his Daily Express column, Nicholas wrote: “The thing that irritates me more than anything is his lack of celebration when he scores.

     

     

    “It should be the greatest feeling in the world but Odsonne doesn’t show that.”

     

     

    ———————————–

     

     

    Charlie must be worried that Odsonne won’t find the excitement of scoring for Celtic is enough to commit his whole career to us. I am very touched by Charlie’s concern.

  22. Young Celts win 4 to 2. Karamoko just back after a long injury lay off is back in business with the 4th goal.

  23. After he gave away the penalty against Rennes, many on here said that Ajer grabbed jerseys etc too often . I disagreed.

     

    Having watched him more carefully on Sunday,I feel I was wrong. He really does foul in that manner far too often. It could cost us.

     

    I think he is already a fine player and could reach the top of his profession. He won`t if he does not cut out that aspect of his game.

  24. Corkcelt

     

     

    I noticed earlier that Karamoko was on the bench…

     

     

    Anyone know if there is a particular reason why?
