Christie can determine his price


Hampden Park has been the venue for sixteen consecutive wins in cup semis and finals for the Celtic  players ahead of the Scotland Euro 2020 game against Czech Republic there this afternoon.  I know for sure you have memories of great goals at the national stadium by Callum McGregor, James Forrest and Ryan Christie.  Each of them rise to the big occasion.

There is a good chance David Turnbull and Jack Hendry will be involved, as well as former players: David Marshall, Kieran Tierney and Stuart Armstrong, with former Celtic youth Andy Robertson sure to start.  Greg Taylor is with the squad but unlikely to force his way past Tierney and Robertson.

International football is not the same: we are conditioned for disappointment and an early exit, but this generation of Celtic players deserve to compete on the international stage.  In particular, I hope Ryan Christie shines.  He is on his way out the door, all that is to be determined is the price.

    Raging with Bet365 after last night. The My Bets function went points north, and I couldn’t cash out at 2-1 for Netherlands (my bet), or for 2-2 (wife’s bet). Complained, and got the expected mealy mouthed response, even though they acknowledged that there was an issue. Not even refunded original stakes – bustards.



  2. whatever happened to pick your best players – the ones on form? Christie hasn’t kicked a ball for a year and has actually regressed as a player. Odd selection based on Scottish mentality – tentative, invite the goal , then we’re underdog then we start to play. Awful mentality at home!

    I wouldn’t blame Marshall for the second goal. The team was right up the pitch, so unsurprising he is off his line. Great finish by the Czech player. Stupid of JH to shoot from 40 yards with an easy pass on.

  4. A draw with Croatia and a win at Wembley will see us through :) I have a dream . .



    Forrest almost does an Archie Gemill.

  5. Nisbet’s looked good since he came on. You can see the threat Jamesie brings, but he needs games to get sharper.

  6. Dont think iv heard any criticism of big Marsh for 2nd goal…he was way out of position ffs

    As Marshal again keeps the scoreline respectable…am glad I really don’t care ;-))

  8. We had a few decent chances and spells of play which is about as much as I realistically expected. Without a quality frontman we lack any real goal threat.

  9. After Christie’s performance today no one will buy him, better wait 6 month and get him on a free

    Ditto….with large knobs on!!!

  11. Go tell the Spartim on

    Can’t fault the effort some players just aren’t at this level. Created half chances which is something positive, plenty of possession too but in the end a fair bit short

  12. TheLurkinTim on

    Deary me…post match analysis is all about being positive about glorious failure ;-))

  13. Gene, SonsofErin,



    Agreed on McGinn – too untidy in receiving possession today and seemed to be obsessed with passing to Robertson or, if that wasn’t on, trying to dribble and ending up in trouble.


    Forrest made a bit of a difference – more variety and penetration- he’s not a wing-back though.

  14. christie must be a superstar in training – he has done nothing on any football pitch lately. I liked Adams when he came on – always available and good link up play. 2 good goals but Scotland lacked intent and guile even though we had that on the bench.



    the only good decision made today was taking christie off at half time
