Containing consequences

258

It still stings, but we need to park the pain of defeat and get back on the horse tomorrow.ย  Reversals can become infectious, they can drive confidence into a spiral. For my money, this phenomenon in part formed Brendan’s reaction after the game on Wednesday. He was relatively upbeat, containing the consequences by saying whatever positives were available.

Kilmarnock are the only domestic opponents to beat Celtic this season, so we have are reasons to be cautious.

Our motivation should be clear, win, and put seven points between us and St Mirren, with the Paisley club playing Newco on Sunday. Let’s hope our Glasgow rivals can do is a favour and peg Saints back.

    Not a chance the game will be on if this rain keeps up.

     

    ____

     

    I Don’t think the game will be on. Flooding everywhere in Inverclyde.

  2. Weather down here in Wirral is fantastic! 22 degrees and sun on its way also. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‘ ๐ŸŒž

     

     

    Hope the game goes ahead. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ†โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿ€

     

     

    3-0 to the hoops. Same as my Superbru prediction.

     

     

    Reckon 3-1 to St. Mirren tomorrow. Although, that might be too generous to the Huns and their multi-million pound front line. No laughing at the back. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ’ฉ๐Ÿ’ฉ

    Ya coward ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜…

     

     

    Daughters wedding at 3:15 today, rain forecast is down to 80% ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ

    Prestonpans

     

    The happy couple won’t have a first dance. It’ll be synchronised swimming. ๐Ÿ˜‚

  5. Being a bit under the weather of late and seeing the forecast, I had decided not to travel down to the game today. It would seem I might not be losing out anyway.

     

    I kind of don`t want the game to go ahead in these condidtions as I think it helps Killie as it becomes a bit of a leveller.

  6. Hope the groundsman make sure the sprinklers are on, we know a wet surface helps our passing game.

  7. Feck the fitba, the end is nigh! Am gettin tonights bevvy in now incase the shops shut early because of the weather ๐ŸŒง ๐Ÿ˜ฒ ๐Ÿ˜จ

  8. It seems that Dundee`s game is off and from what I can gather, the weather here ( Arbroath) 20 miles from Dundee is not as bad as it is in Glasgow. Then again, our pitch can withstand wet weather better than Dens Park can.

  9. I was thinking (!) that if the Dundee game could be called off this early then why can`t the Celtic game be inspected at the same time and a decision made ( for the benefit of the traveling support as well as anything else).

     

    Then I realised that it is easier to call a game off than it is to say it is `On`. Continuing effect and all that.

    Reading back and wading through post after post of petty argument, I can across your cracker.

    Now that is a place worth reminiscing about. The mad nights, the mad stuffed camel and the mad sticky floors. Then there was the music.

     

     

    ——

     

     

    Indeed on Clatty Pats; Nip-A-Nurse central back in the day.

     

     

    Re the ‘stuffed camel and sticky floors’… I think today’s spandex leisurewear is bringing the stuffed dromedary visual right back into vogue ๐Ÿคญ

  11. Good morning from a bright sunny and warm North Staffs. However as I’m decorating the living room I won’t be enjoying it.

     

    I’m sure they’ll have closed the roof at Celtic park ๐Ÿ˜.

    A bit late for some travellers, the Donegal buses left at 4am!

  13. No shortage of tickets today for anyone wanting one.

     

     

    The Celtic sites are full of offers.

    Indeed ! I was thinking about the further sprung travellers from Ireland, England etc but I didn`t want to turn my post into a Travelogue :-))

  15. McPhail Bhoy

     

     

    Maybe our game might actually be on and not in danger. I see Partick Thistle declared that.

  16. Should football not be guided by an Amber weather warning.. ?

     

     

    The guidance is self explanatory and the authorities reaction should be obvious

  17. Greenpinata

     

    Agreed. The ultimate decision seems obvious. The delay is odd – and dangerous

  18. Need to be making the decision soon personally heading through to paradise from the Kingdom.

     

    Hoping itโ€™s on but leaving a bit early myself to avoid the travel challenges if possible.

  19. Back to Basics - Glass Half Full on

    Checked trains through Bellgrove and Bridgetown 30 minutes ago.

     

     

    All fine with a few very minor delays.

     

     

    Checked again now and some trains (commonly every second train) cancelled

     

     

    Hmm.

     

     

    Think we need a DEFINITELY ON or OFF message in next 30 minutes.

     

     

    Fairly complex decision making and communication planning but assume there should be a playbook for this and it is active.

  20. If the pitch is playable, we should play. Some fans will still make it. Make it free to view on Celtic TV.

  21. lets all do the huddle on

    no point in calling the game off if the pitch is fine which it likely will be as i cant think of the last time we had drainage issues with the pitch

     

     

    fair enough there will be a load of empty seats

     

     

    but if it gets called off and re-arranged then the re-arranged date is going to be a midweek in the depths of winter and so there will be a similar number of empty seats

     

     

    as well keeping it on today then especially for those who have already started their canoe-ing to the game early doors this morning

  22. Celtic will want the game to go ahead ,if all things go our way,this weekend,we could be ten points clear.

     

    If our game is off and. Sevco win it will be down to four points ,can you imagine the hysteria that would.create in the media HH
