Daunting Celtic


Hibs were on a good run of form before capitulating 1-4 to Newco last time out.  Conceding a penalty minutes after taking an early lead, sapped whatever coherence their match plan had. Before this, they took 13 from 15 points.  That successful run came on the heels of a chastening 0-3 home defeat to Hearts.  Hibs appear to be successful against teams below them in the league, not so much on those above.

With only one draw and one defeat in 28 league games, Celtic are a daunting prospect.  Lee Johnson is likely to complete the notable achievement of going an entire season as Hibs manager without getting the sack.  To retain the confidence of club and support, he doesn’t need a result at Celtic Park, but reining in the gap on Hearts, just one place above them, is where he will be judged.

This may be just as well, as I cannot see a weakness in Celtic right now.  They are vastly superior to tomorrow’s opponents and have no hint of complacency.  Same as usual, please, Celtic.

  1. Tom McLaughlin on

    O’Riley should start today. We’re lucky to have such talented players ready to step in as required.

  2. Strange VAR scenes from Sky there. First shot with line drawn showed Well player looking clearly offside. it looked as though the shot was taken after the ball had left the passer’s feet. After the goal was awarded they showed the official pic with the line drawn correctly and the same Well player was clearly onside. Begs the question- why are they using unofficial clips that would just provoke a sense of injustice re this decision?

  3. Breaking news, Grimsby sign Billy the fish and Roy Race ahead of the Brighton game.


    Alf Upper in charge of sprint training.

    Not well today so can’t make the game, we should therefore win 7:0!



    me tae!

  5. Abysmal goalkeeping from the Well keeper.Leaving 2/3 rds of your goal open,at the side the FK is being taken is shocking.It ended up,no more than a chip in.Huns first attempt in 22 minutes.

  6. The amount of hype surrounding the Huns 2 bang average signings,is interesting.Watch this space,in no time at all,they will be valued by the SMSM at 15 million.For players that have done nothing since arriving.

  7. Greenpinta and all the same reason that an Irish Catholic was replaced as our patron saint with a Galilean fisherman, it’s a calvanist thing.

  8. AT,



    The blog needs its long standing posters. I have wanted every regular poster back from banning orders, including yourself.



    I think we will win 3 -0 today. It will be interesting to see what our reserve goalkeeper is today.



    Watched Celtic players stop and engage with a young family on Instagram outside Lennoxtown.


    We are truly building a class team on and off the park.



    Enjoy the game.




  9. CELTIC could welcome back Benjamin Siegrist into the fold this afternoon at Celtic Park if the Swiss stopper is deemed fit enough to take a place on the bench.



    The former Dundee Utd man has made two appearances for the club since joining in the summer – both coming in the League Cup before he went down with an injury.



    After being spotted back in training a couple of weeks back, the goalkeeper posted images of himself at Lennoxtown on Friday evening, showing he was back in full training.



    It means Benjamin could be available for the Hibernian game and would take his place as the backup to Joe Hart.

  10. Corkcelt,



    I am aware EL is not banned.


    I would imagine he’s probably too busy writing about the SNP leadership contest at the moment 🤣



    His ego has probably taken a hit, but I’m sure he will be back eventually.



    Anyway game time.
