Days where titles are won


A couple of hours after Celtic lost in Germany on Wednesday, St Johnstone fell to the same fate at Kilmarnock, who started the game bottom of the table without a win.

That was Saints first defeat since August, so any notion that tomorrow’s Premiership game in Perth will be anything other than taxing for Celtic is likely to be wide of the mark.

It is an away game after an away game in Europe, the scenario when points are most often dropped.  Add to this recent form, which is well below our early season standards, and injuries to key players, and your have a cocktail of concern.

These are the days where titles are won, the days we acquired such a deep squad to cope with.  A win please, Celtic.

More on Callum McGregor after tomorrow, eye on the prize.

    In the days I used to get away tickets loved my Perth visits. Always booked a B&B in town where the landlady would offer a ridiculously large breakfast😁 my wife came too and did the shopping thing while I was at the game👍

  3. I think we will score a few tomorrow as we are due to start converting chances created again.

  4. One man’s absence is anothers opportunity, whoever plays for Callum and any other absentees needs to grasp their chance and the jersey, plenty players on the payroll, time to step up for the team fans and club.


    Oh and score with more of the chances a simple finish will do fine.

  5. P67 — you are awful …

    QF @ 12.17



    SR — you are right in an absolutist sense.


    But he came through from the youths so — to my way of thinking –we owe him more than OU / LSh / LSc.



    He has played 50 games on loan — starting at 19.


    At least two of the managers raved about him.


    I would think that at the very least we should give him an opportunity to fail.



    AP sees him at training / we don’t so that might be part of it — but I would think that we need to offer the youth a pathway to the 1st team and get SR to test it out.



    He has been injured and he is maturing — can go either way as the ego / self-image develop — so maybe he wants to play as he starts to enter his footballing prime years.



    You accept knockbacks when you can rationalise them on the basis of your tender age.


    Becomes more of a struggle as you get older and the desire to play is not being accommodated.



    Strange one — playing him soon would appear to be the next step.


    No games and his future would appear to be elsewhere.

  6. St J game on Wednesday — one less excuse for the excuse mongers.



    If we play with energy then we win.

  7. CCV back in training according to Ange, a huge lift if he was fit. Mooy also training but Turnbull still out with Tonsillitis.



    Even after the horror show at St Mirren I’d have Mooy in for Calmac. Or O’Riley although that leaves us with a problem further up the pitch.



    A couple of early goals and no more injuries please. As if



    Waiting on results today but Ange says it’s “fairly significant “

    From last thread,



    Would you mind reposting the goalie question from a few days ago? I missed it.



    I have a vague notion that Peter Latchford may have gone to Clyde after Celtic?

  10. Injuries to players equate to opportunities for others. If I had been stuck on the bench this season I would be raring to go and show the boss what I can do. If I can’t contribute, why am I there?

  11. Straight swap for me Big Ollie in for Calmac tomorrow.Another match under his belt.Cal not out short term,so need to get the big guy fully integrated.CCV back for midweek,huge for us.Gio hopefully getting a run out,rest Jota,Haksa in.


    Well that’s what I would do !!!!!!!!!!

    If you are looking in – France Football magazine ranked once rated which Bhoy as the sixth best player in Europe.





    Sorry Joe, it was not Jinky, but it was indeed a Lisbon Lion.




    Did you see the other question?




    Which Celt said,



    “Celtic Park, where a man is judged by his football alone.”



  13. bournesouprecipe on




    No Callum MacGregor in the Celtic side makes us weaker, Celtic’s best overall player in years, no question. Pick a temporary Captain? – and Joe Hart is favourite. Suspended tomorrow anyway Callum’s poor touch didn’t stop him being first to the breaking Leipzig player, but it might have been different if he hadn’t tried to get back.



    Whoever gets the armband has some boots to fill, one specialist’s prognosis could be season defining because the Celtic and Scotland midfield metronome doesn’t have an equivalent at Parkhead.



    A different Celtic dynamic tomorrow is still something to look forward to, cliches are often true, we need to step up to the plate.

    Was it Tommy Gemmell, ranked 6th best in Europe?





    Correct my friend (1967).




  15. BSR @ 1.14



    You really are having a laugh — CMcG is a good player but your comments suggest that you work with his ma.

    I think wee Jimmy was third that year. Could you imagine that today🤔Some achievement.




    I remember around that time that Big Tam was named as the best left back in the world.



    What a character, what a player!

  18. garygillespieshamstring on

    The big Tam one is particularly interesting in the context of many people being of the opinion that a right footed player should not be playing left back.

  19. I knew them both!



    Ronnie and I were friends from school and Roddy lived next door (or so) from my then girlfriend.
