Double-header danger

375

Consecutive games against the same team are dangerous, even when you win the first convincingly.  We only need to think back to the 7-0 drubbing we dished out to St Mirren in 2009.  The Paisley team were so far outclassed they should not have been on the same field as Celtic that day, but a week later they knocked us out of the Scottish Cup.

Hibs were awful in defence on Wednesday and should have done better with the chances they had going forward, but they will have a point to prove this afternoon and can be relied on to fight “tooth and nail” to puncture Celtic’s title credentials.

If James Forrest is able to float into a central position Celtic should have enough, but they don’t have many game-winners like Forrest.

  2. Halt time at Pitoddrie

     

     

    Aberdeen held Rangers fairly comfortably, but present little of a goal threat of their own.

     

     

    Talking point of the first half was undoubtedly the tackle by Naismith which saw Milson with blood streaming from his leg

     

    and not even commented on let alone punished.

     

     

    Minutes later Naismith collapsed in a heap with a probably serious knee injury.

     

     

    The Dons would need to sneak a goal, but a draw looks like our best hope.

     

     

    The biggest threat in the second half will come from Willie Collum as he will award a penalty in one of the forthcoming

     

    simulations inside the Aberdeen box.

    best of both worlds now Italiabhoy he has sustained an injury and if the review panel is doing its job a certain red card for the tackle.

    Maybe Colum was facin the wrong way at that tackle??

     

     

    I thought he had eyes at the back of his head. I’m sure i can remember hiom giving something when looking the other direction.

  6. i think Mort’s stats show that, in both years, rangers get to commit more fouls than Celtic before a YC is produced and their opponents get to commit fewer fouls against them before a YC is shown than in equivalent Celtic games.

  7. I firmly predict that Mr Collum will decide how to give the points to the huns here…….

     

     

    Its inevitable

     

     

    Can I ask a question – the huns were singing a tune to the famine is over ditty – is it the same song with the same words? Does anyone know?

  8. Snake Plissken on

    Well I’m away to do some cooking.

     

     

    The filth have the points now.

     

     

    The sheep are terrible.

    The stats are even more stark when comparing games between Celtic and Rangers and even more when Craig Thompson is in charge.

  10. Eyes Wide Open on

    Folks,

     

     

    I have a wee question hopefully someone on here now can answer.

     

     

    Just doing my football bets on paddypower.com for the day and noticed there was a wee TV sign next to the Celtic Hibs game.

     

     

    When I clicked on it it took me to a list of different games, which I presume also had wee TV signs next to them.

     

     

    I know this sounds like a dumbass question – but what does this mean?

     

     

    If I have a paddypower account can I get to see it through them, is it a new form of pay per view tv or what is it.

     

     

    I havent heard anything about any new and ‘above board’ means of watching games through gambling sites…
