Quantcast

Fragile limbs

The overwhelming request from an international break is that our players return injury-free.  Nir Bitton made an appearance as a second half substitute against Wales last night but left the field 18 minutes later, with a foot injury.

Nir is in the best form of his life and has carved himself out a deep-lying creative role in the Celtic team.  Central midfield roles don’t come up for grabs too often.  Two of our strongest players, Scott Brown and Stefan Johansen, compete for a small number of central midfield jerseys, although they are different types of players, so it’s important our Nir doesn’t spend too long on the side-lines.

Fraser Forster’s terrible knee injury last weekend was sickening.  The big guy is one of the most professional players in the game and is absolutely dedicated to his development.  His form in the FA Premier League this season has been sensational, recording more shutouts than any other keeper.

It’s a blow to Southampton too, who gave Celtic £10m for Fraser’s services seven months ago.

    Sounds like MO’N’s side is similar to hs previous ones. The Irish golden age has gone.

     

     

    Delaney. Excellent point about pricing. Got mates from all over the place who would want to watch Celtic but the total cost is prohibitive.

  4. HT, 100% agreement from me.

     

    Pricing at a realistic level, 3pm kick off, crowds will go up.

     

    Long winter break too, football at Christmas through to late February is dismal fare, cold wet and miserable. Not the weather to attract crowds.

    Yep flights are expensive.

    Sometimes you get the feeling that you could play all night and never score………..

  7. 7 minutes to go, time for the long ball.

     

     

    Before 2002, Ireland used to punt the ball up the park. Do they now Euro it?

    If your parents are first cousins you tend to look inwards and become The Peepul.

  9. 67Heaven .. CHALLENGING THE LIE ..I am wee Oscar...... Ipox belongs to the creditors on

    That Hoolahan is making mistakes all over the place

  10. I just had a look at the tables of each qualifying group. Wales and Northern Ireland will probably qualify while both the Republic and Scotland could easily miss out. I really wouldn’t enjoy that scenario!

  11. Agree – Brady’s crossing has let him down , Hoolahan get caught in possession too much.

     

     

    Thought Aiden started brightly enough but didn’t create too much, was unlucky just before half time

    Goooooaaaallll….!!!!
