Get ready for Brendan’s reign

650

There was a spring in the step this morning as we look forward to Celtic taking to the field for the first time under Brendan Rodgers against Slovenians, NK Celje.

While the usual caveats apply – we’re unfit and will look it, the manager doesn’t really know the players yet – it will be interesting to see the formation, and how it contrasts to Ronny’s reign. I would also look out for wee clues as to how we will play, like how the keeper distributes the ball, and where the full backs play.

16 years ago Martin O’Neill took his team to the Netherlands and was well beaten, but he returned to Amsterdam a few weeks later, where he ripped up the form book, so don’t get too stressed by what might happen later.

Once in a lifetime opportunity……

There are rare experiences and then there are extremely rare experiences, but the chance to appear in the Celtic team photo is incredibly rare.

Thanks to Malorbhoy, we have a £5-a-ticket raffle to win the chance to appear in your very own team photo, alongside the Celtic players and management at the preseason photocall for 2016-17.

You will then meet treble winning captain, Tom Boyd, who will give you a personal tour of Celtic Park.

Celtic will provide you with a strip, which you will retain, and you will receive your team photograph, framed and signed by the team, on a specially prepared mount.

This is an incredible experience for any Celtic fan.

Your donations go to Celtic FC Foundation, to support their work in Health, Equality, Learning and Poverty. The Foundation deliver often life-changing support and opportunities to children and adults in Scotland, Ireland, the rest of the UK and in many needy areas of the globe.

Buy your ticket at MyDonate here. You can enter as many times as you like, but only donations of £5 or higher will be entered into the raffle.

Many thanks and good luck!

    I notice Cifti is wearing a black armband. No doubt due to events in Turkey.

  2. I’ll be supporting Poland in tonight’s other match and predict a 2-0 win for them.

    Having a Turkish player on our books it might have been a nice show of respect if our whole team had worn a black armband.

    Roberts a joy to watch on the ball – dribbling with his head up – quality.

    The voice is a modern coach

     

     

    Keep shouting “prace!! Prace!!” (Work, work)

     

     

    Unless it’s Brendan ‘pass!! Pass!!

    This has been a tournament of surprises but it should be no surprise if Poland win. They have a much better defence and Lewandowski has yet to come to life.

     

     

    Apart from Ronaldo and the young Bayern player, Portugal have not impressed.

     

     

    Armstrong misses a good chance after good build up play

  8. I’m damn near skelly-eyed at the moment. One eye on the blog, one eye on Polska and the other …… Wait a minute I don’t have another. Great goal by Ciftci after a great chipped cross by Armstrong. My pictures gone at the moment.

    Sounds like the local primary school have been given free tickets. High pitched chanting. Or maybe it’s all our midfielders on the bench.
