Forrest’s long road back


The last thing James Forrest needed on returning to the first team after a lengthy injury absence is a two-week international break.  James needs games to deliver the match fitness that is simply not possible by training.  It could take him until the end of the season before he is at anything like his best.

John Kennedy will be keen to get James fit for the business end of the Scottish Cup, so I expect he will make substitute appearances in most games over the coming weeks, and perhaps a start on 3 April and play part of the game against Arbroath or Falkirk in the Cup itself.  The Cup is only a landmark, though, like the rest of his teammates, the priority for James is to be in peak condition for the summer’s Champions League qualifiers.

In terms of Sunday, it’s not often I say this, but I think the players owe us one.

  1. Saint Stivs wants nothing from you wee man!



    Unlike me he is a welcome contributor who gives us a sense of self, has posted some poignant stuff that makes us stop, take a breath and consider our position in life and Celtica in general. Never known him to be abusive..unless you take offense against factual things.



    He would tell you this himself but is too classy for that shit. That’s where I come in. I’m only engaging because I like to hear constructive argument of which you have so far been incapable.

  2. To classy, explain why he tried to shut the blog down usiing the bereavement of another poster

  3. Art of War.



    Your a good soul.



    Every now and again one of my nephew’s or my closest young cousins actually gets a point I make. And defend me like I did for my grandas.



    I like that.



    Better to be us. Ourselves alone. As O’Hagan said.



    Keep it lit.



    Let that arsehole go. And go enjoy being us.

  4. But can’t explain being a clown to other Celtic fans. Sorry it could be Sunday and your having your dinner, and we can’t disturb, just like the gentry.

  5. Saint Stivs – I’ll try but it’s difficult at times.



    I run a team of 15 @ work and try and deal with each equally without fear or favour.



    But some are just arseholes and you have to accept that and move on.



    It’s life.

  6. So a Czeck player whispers something to a Finnish player and an English player says “I didn’t hear it myself but I’m 100% sure that’s what was said”


    I guess modern day footballers, instead of playing pool, hone their linguistic skills during their free time. I remember when footballers only had brains in their feet, changed days indeed.

  7. Big G – what’s your point of being you tonight?



    I’m enjoying a cool Stella whilst chatting with family and posting on here.



    Why so angry?

  8. Dad has been asking when the Celtic Rangers game is on for a couple of weeks now.



    I Know Dad is on his way out. It is not nice but I know he is going to an Amazing place.



    I Hope the Celts maul the Newco with Pure Inventive Fitba on Sunday.

  9. Anyhoo last post



    Bullyingt – it’s insipid.



    A good friend – GFTB – GerryFaeTheBrig, used to post on here regularly.



    For the most part he talked shite.


    He talked about his ‘wee blade’ (daughter)


    and had general chit-chat.



    He no longer posts because he got tag-teamed with abuse by Wishaw Tim and AN Other – every time he posted.



    This saddens me and it does not represent this site



    Re-instate GFTB!



  10. Art of war, can you defend the racism. That happened in that game of course you can’t, how many arseholes can.

  11. My Dad enthused about John Kennedy more than any other when he was making waves on Celtic TV watching the young ones.



    Take yer Time Celtic and make the right call.




    Dermot needs to be bought out IMO, if it is possible, 1 Dude (he isnae technically controlling things) controlling things he is and thats not on.




    It pissed me right off when Robbie Keane was there for 6 months on 65 grand a week…..



    as reported. Ultimate Laziness.



    No way he was gonnae be @ Celtic long time.



    Our European decline has been catastrophic.



    Tomorrow is a new God given Day.

  12. Advisory note : its not real.



    ” Reports if widespread panic in Liverpool have been circulating.


    Residents have had to be reminded that they are being offered a jab and not a job.” 😄



    So you have a ” GREENHOUSE”……Give me a shout when you open a PUBLIC HOUSE ?


    Take care of yourself, and hopefully you can manage into Glesga Toon for a good Bevvy asap ?




    All the Prague player said to Kamara was…” Yer Club is Deed mate….Beat it”.



    The Huns and their support never let me down when it comes to Hypocrisy…some are wanting Slavia Prague kicked out of the Europa League, due top one players ALLEDGED Comments…In 1999 in a UEFA Cup Tie, The Hun Captain Lorenzo Amoruso firstly DENIED calling a Borossia Dortmund player ( Victor Ikpeba)… A BLACK BA….during the game.


    When faced with the Video Evidence, Amoruso finally ADMITTED making the comment, but HE ( Amoruso) then claimed couldnt he REMEMBER doing it, and added…” Sometimes things are said in during a game..and in the heat of battle blah blah”.



    Apparently, Amoruso was forced to apologise to the Player.


    Does anyone remember IF UEFA and/or the Huns PUNISHED Amoruso ?



    Amoruso was also a LIAR…IF its true that he couldnt remember…then Why then ADMIT doing it ? He only ADMITTED it when he was shown the ” Video Evidence”….and you didnt NEED to be a Professional Lip Reader to know what he called the Dortmund player.


    Another arrogant Hun scumbag…Who I also thought was an absolute DIDDY when it came to trying to play fitba. Whenever he Fecked up…it was ALWAYS a Team Mates fault….wee Henke got the better of him plenty of times..if I remember correctly ?



  14. Is there a chance Kamara misheard what was said ? Different nationalities, a hand covering his mouth, heated atmosphere = a recipe for disaster. Racism is absolutely wrong and should be called out, however in this case, its going to be difficult to prove. The UEFA investigation into the whole situation will be intresting but unlikely to be conclusive.

  15. A bit of a mixed Final Day of Cheltenham for me…I only backed Three Winners at the Early Prices of around 3/1, 9/1 and 3/1 again.


    The IRISH HAMMERED The Brits in their ain Midden..magic !



    I want to Kiss the Jockey Rachell Blackmore…shes a great Jockey…and shes a ” Looker” once she gets out of the ” Silks”.


    she did pick the wrong horse to ride in The Gold Cup, but I forgive her.



  16. Good morning all, regarding guard of honour.



    We know they league was bent this year, they cheated with their style in every game, the refs more than influenced results for them and against us, distinct possibility covid cover-ups common place at i-broke too and they are behind on their tax again.



    If all of that was not the case, then yes, but they know there’s no honour in their “victory” and we should not be validating their actions.



    Press and media know it too, yet not one question about covid testing or finances all season.



    So very sad.

  17. James Forrest has contributed very little in champions leagues qualifiers over last 8 years


    He has virtually started every one and has contributed to shambles that is Europe


    He is of course best suited at home v lesser opposition and his goal stats and assists v the smaller spfl clubs is very impressive


    He fails against better organised teams in Europe and Sevco


    He is late twenties and past his peak


    Time to move on and get a right winger who can compete at higher levels

  18. Maybe their violent behaviour on Thursday was because they are finally being scrutinised.



    You would of thought they could of tried to enjoy themselves. Or maybe the dope is wearing of or taking it’s toll on their fragile minds.




    Back to us I think there’s a few of our players just for their own sake should move on after this season.



    Not sure they well ever get a fair chance from me again perhaps other supporters too.



    Would like to see a new direction which sees investment in youth, opportunity given when it’s earned and an attacking, attractive flowing style of play.



    Not too much to ask, or is it?

  19. Thing is most modern formations don’t include classic winngers.



    If you continually compare a player to a 1970s winger you will be continually dissapointed.



    Formations adapted to stop 424 and 442 wingers.



    No players cut inside more, drift, and link up much more with also drifting central players.



    We missed James Forresr this season.



    We ended up with Christie on the right 🤦‍♂️🙈

  20. MARTIM1980



    You can’t blame Christie for not cutting it when playing wide right.



    He’s had a very poor season in every position he’s played in.



    Get rid.

  21. Celtic to win 3-0 or 3-2 v the Mankie huns.


    Mankie Huns to try and Dismember our Bhoys at every opportunity, with The Officials Blessings.


    Nothing new there.



    Goldsons comment about ” wanting to hurt someone…is a CLEAR Case of bringing the game into Disrepute.


    He will be out against the Celts tomorrow looking to Kick anything in Green .


    Nothing new there either.


    This is the very same Hun Player who was slagged off by his own supporters for ” taking the Knee” at the beginning of the season…and yet this very same Hun Chump…will tell you that the hun supporters are the Best in the world ????


    Go Figure.



  22. Phil Boy oh I totally agree, he’s the first player I would sell.



    I was responding to Sydney regarding that point on Forrest

  23. MARTIM1980



    I realise that, I was just adding my tuppence worth!



    I don’t think ST rates James Forrest or any of his achievements!!




  24. Good morning all from a cool but dry Garngad



    Let’s beat these bunch of KKK, lying, zombie, cheating cnuts.



    99% of zombie supporters I have had the misfortune to meet have been bigots. To a man,woman and child.



    They cannot preach morality to anyone.






    D :)
