  1. It’s telling he’s taken Jota and O’Riley off early in our last two games. Both haven’t been at their best, neither are offering much in the opposition box at the moment.



    Both are too good not to get back there though

  2. Watch Every free kick into the box in the premiership down south. 2 or 3 players always stand in an offside position. They’re hoping a defender touches the ball before it reaches them if they don’t get back onside in time

    A bit of a flat performance , best summed up by saying that 3 points is all that mattered . I felt that our own performance was more of a factor than either Livi or the refs (VAR included).


    I also thought the pitch didn’t look too brilliant given that it’s not been played on much recently . Perhaps that was a factor in some of the sloppy passing we saw , particularly in the second half .



    Having said all that , the number of low crosses we fizzed into their boxwere not being anticipated/attacked by our forwards until Big Obdilaye showed us the way , then eventually Kyogo thought it was an idea worth trying . On to St Johnstone , still 9 points clear , when we’ll see how Ange freshens things up . Maybe even with a wee boost from Ross Co.




    I don’t think that is correct.



    The law gives an example of an offside player moving towards the ball with the clear intent of playing the ball, when he is fouled.



    The example states that the correct decision is a free kick to the attacking team as he had not committed an offence yet. He has not played or attemped to play the ball or challenged an opponent.



    Therefore it is implied that moving towards the ball in itself is not an automatic offside offence.

  5. Hatate, O’Reily and Jota missing in action. It all became a bit boring. The stats are screaming–we need a striker (or two)

    It’s wiki, so maybe but the most reliable source but this is my understanding of it:




    Being in an offside position is not an offence in itself, but a player so positioned when the ball is played by a teammate can be judged guilty of an offside offence if they receive the ball or will otherwise become “involved in active play”, will “interfere with an opponent”, or will “gain an advantage” by being in that position








    By moving towards the ball to challenge the defender he becomes active.

    One of the features of our play has been that goals have come from several areas of the pitch, although not so much recently . Tonight Kyogo was battling in a forest of burly defenders and did well to use his sharpness in getting his one goal . Other than Abada’s VAR effort , neither he, Jota ,Matt , Callum , Reo, or anyone else looked like weighing in with a goal . I recall one good effort from Ralston which their keeper turned round the post but that’s about it .




    You posted but never emailed



    Get emailing…..






    Stop complaining

    “challenging an opponent for the ball or


    clearly attempting to play a ball which is close when this action impacts on an opponent or


    making an obvious action which clearly impacts on the ability of an opponent to play the ball”



    The replay suggests Abada ran towards the defender as he was about to play it in order to challenge him for the ball

  10. You can understand a bit more now why they took so long to conecto the decision but I think it was the right one.

    Email me at






    Your login email dont go to you (must be an old address as you thought)






    shush and stop complaining,



    if you email me on the fake names and accounts maybe we can nip it in the bud



    otherwise stfu



    or email???

  12. My email is a desert (dry and u loved), not a dessert (like a trifle, or a cheescake – but nicer)






    Have you not emailed me yet??



    Or have you chosen to posture, but take no action???












    if you email me on the fake names and accounts maybe we can nip it in the bud




  13. I said my piece here.



    You emailed where?


    Not me! So which address you got? Thats a worry.it should have this moniker in it



    And moniker on here of an email request,which moniker?you can tell me the moniker? No.



    I ans you as it was page1.


    Complaining mmm no,but the observation was spot on re switcheroo monikers,

    Moving forward doesn’t matter, it’s whether he is



    “challenging an opponent for the ball or



    clearly attempting to play a ball which is close when this action impacts on an opponent”



    They decided by moving towards the defender after the ball was played by Turnbull and before the defender played it he was, and I can understand why they did.



    I think this is one of the rare occasions VAR has actually got the correct decision. If we could have someone from the referees explain it to us tomorrow it would help everyone. I can’t get my head round why they’ve communicated the whole thing so badly. Not word from anyone







    I emailed you 3 or 4 times, and you aint replied, but it was to the old email address you used to log in witj






    ^^^ that be the email you are too scrared to reply too



    If you are scared or too weak to escalate



    “Complaining mmm no,but the observation was spot on re switcheroo monikers,”



    let me know where the “switcheroo monikers” are and I will kill it



    Genuinely, I will delete the monikers in question



    How many times do I have to ask you to email me on this



    Jeest email me

  16. CELTIC40ME



    Its defo an opinion thing



    I dont think he had the time to move forward



    the replay I posted kinda (for me lol) proved it



    Thank feck we won

  17. MODERATOR1888 on 21ST DECEMBER 2022 11:47 PM



    Amen to that. Much respect for your efforts on here, you have much more patience than me :)

  18. My email is still a desert AN TEARMANN



    Smells like you like to moan, but not take action






    thats where you take action….



    hit me up and lemme know about those dodgy usernames



    come on man



    it’s not that hard

  19. Mod .


    I wont be emailing you.ok.


    I dont see a reason too,



    If there is something wrong i post here.


    If you dont like feel free to delete but i do wish youd say


    ie moniker 2.14 deleted..


    I have no qualms wi any deletions as you will know every time i get into a prang it will be with someone anonymous,and in the past mod i get comments like ‘snidey’ the anonymous hidden moniker meantime has a wee change and runs along.


    Its just my view,anonymity over genuine authentic real Celtic people,whereas the opposite used to be true but as we know the days of 30/40 page headers are gone.




  20. for the rest of CQN



    I will let you know when An Tearmann emails me at cqnmod@gmail.com



    surely he cant hide behind his accusations and nonsense forever



    He has to at least be prepared to have a chat??






    its getting embarrasing now



    how many times do I have to ask you??







  21. Your email will remain a desert.



    I have no need to e-m,



    Does the e-m you sent to me contain my moniker?




    Thats 3rd times asking?



    Which moniker was looking for me?

  22. got no idea mate



    your login email dont get thru to you



    is it an old email???



    or are you hiding behind an email you dont have access to?



    Smells like that.,….






    that be the email you wana talk about fake logins



    otherwise you are just another “karen” who likes to shout and moan



    without having the b0llOcks to take action



    Is that who you are???




  23. “On performances alone, there’ll be some changes…” says Ange. From his post-game comments the Boss seemed to be unhappy about those who didnt work to get into the box to capitalise on the many crosses pinged in there.


    Probably doesn’t mean defenders, but a bit of a midfield reshuffle/refresh ? Mid of Abildgaard, Guchi and McCarthy ;)



    Also, is it not a bit weird or off and un-Mod like that the MODERATOR seems to be baiting posters with genitalia-related hashtags. 🤪 Mon bhoys; grow up!







    I dont like to be called out by a baby……..



    I have asked AT to email me for weeks now



    It appears he is scared to do so



    I am still waiting for him to man up



    Or shut up

  25. Not all of the VAR discrepancies are anti-Celtic bias.



    I have been confused by the 2nd phase rule since the World Cup.



    Watch the first clip from around 3min 12 sec. and work out why Griezmann’s goal was disallowed






    Then watch the 4th German goal at around 3 min 38 sec






    Tell me why one was disallowed and the other approved?
