Celtic missing the sugar in our tea

427

On the back of Saturday’s result and performance, I didn’t see that draw coming last night. The compensation is that after some better performances and results, evidence remains that we are far from the finished article.

After failing to score I often look for Kris Commons, who has been the sugar in our tea for much of the last five years. For a period, he crafted openings than the rest of the team put together. Injury and illness restricted Kris to five league starts since Christmas, only (also injured) Tom Rogic comes close to being as effective through the middle.

There are simply not enough of the squad likely to pitch up with a goal.

Once Erik Sviatchenko went off injured, the lack of scoring threat was not the only concern. Let’s hope he’s back for Motherwell on Saturday – and partnering Charlie Mulgrew. Motherwell are on their best form in years, five wins-in-a-row. We’ll need to win all the personal battles at Fir Park.

  1. Love the romanticism of some about the good old days. Aye, that jungle was always abuzz with songs and banter.

     

     

    It was for big games. Just like the new stadium is for big games.

     

     

    But for every buzzing 60,000 there was a 15,000 watching in silence against clydebank.

     

     

    Times they have a changed but somethings never change.

  2. PMYTH

     

     

    “The next 10 days could be the most important in our/Ronny’s season.”

     

     

    We’ve been hearing that message every 10 days since October.

     

     

    It’s a bit like “the worst Celtic team I have ever seen” in that one more with surpassing awfulness appears every few weeks.

     

     

    Well, either that or the grumpiness and blind disloyalty (Is this the best opposite for the blind faith jibe?) reaches new depths more regularly than the team does?

  3. Hunderbirds are Gone on

    A view from Nocliquesville:

     

     

    Crowds at CP are down.

     

    The current team are not very good.

     

    The current team lack “winners”.

     

    The board has a part to play in all of this. As they have had in all good or bad teams in our history.

     

     

    The current management team must also accept some responsibility for these facts.

     

     

    IMO whether we win a double, or crash and burn in the league and cup, or one where in between. Change of manager is imperative for next season.

  4. Question been asked a few times on here haven’t seen a reply

     

     

    SO

     

     

    After Split Hoops and Sheep should have 3H and 2 A each

     

     

    As its stands we should play

     

     

    Sheep H

     

    Hearts A

     

    St J A

     

    Murderwell H

     

    depending on who is 6th

     

    Dundee A

     

    PArtick H

     

    Ross County A

     

    “SHOULD” be guaranteed 3 H games

     

     

    Sheep would be

     

    Celtic A

     

    Tarts H

     

    St J A

     

    Well H

     

    depending upon who is 6th

     

    Dundee A

     

    Partick H

     

    Ross COunty H

     

     

    SFA no doubt will decide fairer we travel to Pittodrie

     

     

    PS Pulled from BBC with a pencil and a bit of paper so sorry if any

     

    factual errors.

    You`re right of course. Its just that I don`t think its still there with KC and hasn`t been for some time.

     

     

    Hope I`m wrong.

  6. SFTB,

     

    Funny it’s the first time I’ve posted that message and if you can give me 2 more important games played in any 10 day period this season well fair play to you.

     

     

    We all see the game in different ways, we have Kev-J who is at one end of the visual spectrum and You and Tony D who are at the other end of the visual spectrum. The rest of us mere mortals lie somewhere in between.

     

    Have a good day.

     

     

    Hail! Hail!

    See…thats what happens when you allow them to promote the ‘Big Lie’.

     

    It gets bigger by the hour, and will end up like a mushroom cloud.

     

    And the people who allowed and bowed to that ‘Big Lie’….they will surely be suffocated by it.

     

    You got what you wanted….The Huns, in all their lying, bigoted, glory.

     

    Stop greetin…..You all want to be cheated….carry on.

    Gorrit. Pun a mince. :-0

     

     

    Reasonable to hold the opinion that Warburton is a success.

     

     

    Blindingly unreasonable to hold the opinion that Ronny is a success.

     

     

    “A transfer wheeler dealer”………….. you mean precisely what Ronny has been doing . However we won`t know about their quality until we have a decent coach.

     

     

    Sorry,mate.Your comparison is odious…………..why not reference the exploits of the stats of the coach of Auchtermuchty amateurs. That would have as much relevance.

     

     

    No insult to Auchtermuchtians .

     

    Best be careful after my faux pas over Kirkie.

    On another note the Great Hunger Memorial (Coiste Cuimhneachain An Gorta Mor) contributions now standing at £4,499 – only a further £501 needed for them to invite artists to submit designs.

     

    I am sure that we all appreciate the hard work of its committee and all the generous donors.

     

    Look forward to seeing it in situ. HH

  11. The Green Man says SACK THE Board on

    Like i say…The whole world knows Scoddish Fitba is bent.

     

    Yet…you all insist on giving the Huns a helping hand….by going to see them at Hampden.

     

    Thats clever eh.

     

    Legitimise them….by going to see them.

     

    Some of you need to a real hard look in the mirror.

     

    WE….are allowing them to be corrupt…..and there is no excuse whatsoever.

     

    Only the RES 12 bhoys can hold their heads high.

     

    The rest of us should chuck it….or shut up.

     

    We allowed them to cheat…by doing nothing collectively about it.

     

    We let them shaft us without a protest.

     

    Sadly.

    “Funny it’s the first time I’ve posted that message and if you can give me 2 more important games played in any 10 day period this season well fair play to you. ”

     

     

    It has been many posters who have posted this message- not just you.

     

     

    They were posted back in Sept, Oct and Nov when we were playing crucial season-defining Euro ties because “European football is the only benchmark, doncha know?”

     

     

    After, we went out of Europe, they were regularly posted because we were, initially, behind Aberdeen and, latterly, because we were only narrowly in front.

     

     

    Any regular reader of CQN has seen this “crucial period/ must win games” assertion appearing on a regular basis this season. And yet, Ronny is still here.

     

     

     

     

    Macjay

     

     

    “Reasonable to hold the opinion that Warburton is a success.

     

    Blindingly unreasonable to hold the opinion that Ronny is a success. ”

     

     

    2 more assertions with not one bit of evidence or rhetoric to back them up.

     

     

     

    “Sorry,mate.Your comparison is odious…………..why not reference the exploits of the stats of the coach of Auchtermuchty amateurs. That would have as much relevance. ”

     

     

    Who would you accept as a reasonable benchmark?

     

     

    My comparison has:-

     

     

    2 managers of large Scottish clubs

     

    2 teams with a major financial advantage over their rivals

     

    2 teams who will be playing each other at the later stages of the major Cup competition soon.

     

    2 teams who will be rated by the bookies (not me) as first and second favourites for the Premiership next season.

     

    2 teams who play in the same city

     

    Two teams with a remarkably similar competitive record in their League

     

     

     

    What exactly would a non-odious comparison look like.

     

    And, remember, an assertion is not an argument. Try and throw in some evidence or supporting rhetoric.

  17. Here’s a reality check for some, the SFA have been at it with us for as far back as I care to remember, this isn’t a new thing as some would like to think, all just to get a big stick to beat up PL and the board, ban this, ban that, crazy.

     

    All this crap and whining gets us no where, there are enough moaners around to do something what is it they think that will end all this? Fan representative on the CFC board, ? Give me a ferkin break, Ultra’s with an agenda in sheeps clothing who do absolutely nothing, the last time they had an original thought in they’r head, it became lonely.

  18. The Green Man says SACK THE Board on

    And to make matters worse….those outraged by the hun cheating, will go to hampden and pay to see more hun cheating.

     

    Dave King and Craig Thompson will be rubbing their hooves with glee.

     

    Getting people that hate you, to give you money….How good is that for them eh?

     

    Very Clever.

    With just assertion, no evidence, no supporting rhetoric……………………………And no surprise

  20. The Green Man says SACK THE Board on

    Hebcelt

     

     

    Make no mistake….The euro football authorities know exactly what the huns are about.

     

    However….because we refuse to make a collective protest…they probably think….Celtic fans arent bothered, so why should we be.

     

    Anybody that goes to hampden is buying into a double lie…..You are giving the huns, exactly what they want.

     

    A show of solidarity with some form of boycott….would send a message.

     

    But some supporters seem more concerned about themselves….than showing a bit of solidarity against the cheating.

     

    I can only come to the conclusion….that thousands of Celtic fans, dont mind being cheated.

     

    Thats not for me.

  22. BMCW, Bobby thanks for the birthday wishes. I would really love to have a drink with you before I go to Brunei later in the year. We’ll sort it out.

     

     

    SFTB, regular readers of CQN will know I am a regular reader of CQN. Europe these days is not our bread and butter and hasn’t been for a long time. As I said failure in the next 2 games could see us go into free fall and end up with nothing. Inconceivable – mibbes aye, mibbes naw.

     

    I’d love to spend the day chewing the cud with you but I’m sure as a regular reader of CQN you have ascertained that I might have better things to do today.

    We should be out on the street protesting.

     

    But these days….The Prawn Sandwich Brigade would object to getting up off their a**** to do something about it.

     

    Stop complaining about the cheating….we are all culpable, because we allow it.

     

    And until we stand up against it…together,..it will continue.

     

    Do you really want to see these cheating bigots shaft us forever….i fecking dont.

     

    Do not go to Hampden….You are giving them what they want.

     

    Wake up ffs

  25. The Green Man says SACK THE Board on

    Here is an ideal chance for Celtic fans to say….feck you and your cheating.

     

    Cheat amongst yourselves….we want no part of it.

     

    Do not let them away with the ‘Big Lie’

    Success at the same level .

    Since when does an opinion ( see above ) become an “assertion ” ?

     

     

    You compare different coaches in different leagues on a statistical basis.

     

    AND on that spurious comparison come to a conclusion about their relative merits.

     

    Why bother continuing to flog ?

     

    The horse is dead.
