Celtic’s heroes wanted home and fit 8 days from Champions League

325

Delighted as we all are for the success of the Scotland team, flush with six Celtic players in Friday’s starting line-up, Brendan Rodgers will primarily be hoping they, and our many other players on international duty, come through the remaining World Cup qualifiers unscathed.

On Friday we are at Hamilton, but one week tomorrow we face PSG at Celtic Park, against a team who have scored 14 goals in four league games last month – then signed striker, Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.

The one player who could have done with some international game time is Jozo Simunovic, but he managed only the bench as Bosnia easy past Gibraltar. Hamilton’s artificial surface is not the place Brendan would want to give his central defender a run out, after being rested for visit to similar surfaces at Kilmarnock at Astana.  Jozo is fit, so could go straight into the team for Tuesday, but I’m sure the manager would prefer him to have an outing first.

Not that I’m nervous about Tuesday, of course.

    Fascist sympathisers?

     

     

    Doubtful.

     

     

    The right to self-determination is enshrined in law,and the Argentinian invasion was illegal.

     

     

    No sympathy here,mate. Like many,my misgivings are that the situation was engineered.

    Cyril Smith wasn’t one of Thatcher’s inner circle. Nor was he anywhere near the levers of power. I’m not sure what point you are trying to make.

    That’s what the Chagos Islanders thought.

    Big Jimmy

     

     

    Had there ever been a BIG Jimmy who was any good at football?

     

     

     

    Jimmy McGrory

     

     

    Jimmy Johnstone

     

     

    Jimmy Greaves

     

     

     

    See?

     

     

     

    Noo… I challenge you to find me a decent big Jimmy…..

     

    …………………………

     

     

    Big Jimmy Quinn of The Famous Glasgow Celtic.

     

     

    Now, off hand I dont know what height Jimmy Quinn was but you can bet yer boots that any other Celtic player who was smaller than him called him “Big Jimmy” ?

     

     

    Jimmy Larsson ?

     

    Jimmy Sutton ?

     

    Jimmy Hartson ?

     

    Jimmy Dembele ?

    Good point. I think the airbase agreement was about 10 years after the UN resolution was passed.

     

     

    Still,that was an indigenous population. No whites of UK descent really. So that’s ok.

    Everybody in Glasgow is called Jimmy.

     

     

    FACT!!!

     

     

    So bound to have been some decent footballers who run to a bit of height.

    Re Man City refusing to sell PR to us,or even offer an Odsonne-style loan with price agreement.

     

     

    It makes perfect sense for them.

     

     

    We pay his wages and a loan fee. If he improves further-as expected-his value to Man City increases.

     

     

    If not,no loss.

     

     

    Dare we hope for the wee fella to dig his heels in next year-maybe a loan elsewhere-with a view to running down his contract at only 23 the following year?

     

     

    I dunno. But I think Man City are to be commended for looking after their own interests,but their treatment of PR harms back to the dark ages.

  8. Jimmy Quinn was the first Celtic player to score 200 goals for the club.

     

     

    Still 5th in the all-time list of leading goalscorers for the mighty Hoops.

     

     

    HH!!

    BRENDAN RODGERS will make a new move for South African starlet Rivaldo Coetzee once he sees the full medical report, according to the man who signed him.

     

     

    Celtic pulled the plug on a £800,000 move for the 20-year-old last week after doubts about his fitness.

     

    Instead, Mamelodi Sundowns splashed out £500,000 for the Ajax Cape Town kid.

     

     

    Coetzee was originally expected to be ruled out for between nine months and a year because of a problem with his right foot However, Sundowns boss Pitso Mosimane insists the South African defender will be back within three months.

     

     

    And he reckons Celtic could resurrect their interest in him.

     

     

    He said: “Medically his condition will be sorted. He does not have to go through an operation which would rule him out for nine months like everybody said. “He will soon be back, I think three months maybe. The specialist gave us a report and we are happy with the report. (Sun)

    Tommy Rogic about to start for the socceroos in a must win against Thailand.

     

    We also need Japan to get a result against Saudi Arabia , or Tommy is faced with ultra long travels in the play offs.

  11. Don’t know if anyone else has posted this.

     

    I was watching the England v Slovakia match last night (I don’t have sky and I live down here).

     

    Any way the commentator after telling us Scotland were one up.

     

    Later he informed us that Scotland had scored a second goal.

     

    By Lee Wallace I kid you not i couldn’t believe it.

     

    Later on he did tell us it was Griffiths that’s what he said.

     

    Not Lee just Griffiths, so I just laughed to myself and thought how gutted he must be fnaar fnaar.

  12. Good morning peeps

     

    Would someone be kind enough to give me the facts relating to young Karamoko Dembele.

     

    At what age can we sign him, and what clout do we have in that matter. I know all the European big guns are sniffing around, do we know how much Celtic means to the young man and if we will get him signed.

     

    The bhoy would be sensational for us.

     

     

    Thanks in advance

    =============================

     

     

    Tongue in cheek , mate.

     

     

    Oz massacring Thailand 0-0 at H.T.

     

    Tom playing very well.

  14. Half time Australia 0 Thailand 0.

     

     

    Stuck a bet on (Oor Tom to score at any time) via Bet365 which then gets me free live streaming of the game. Which is nice.

     

     

    Was 6/5 when I invested my couple of quid and now a more generous 2/1. Although doesn’t look like he gets to take the free kicks.

  15. How about big Jim(my) Craig?

     

     

    I think he, big Billy and Tam were all 6′ 1″.

     

    A formidable physical presence in the ‘shorter’ 60s.
