Get the job done early against St Mirren

238

St Mirren sat comfortably above Hamilton and Hearts in the league a week ago, but midweek wins for the bottom two sides asks big questions of the Paisley team.  Celtic might feel the pressure eased after they extended their lead at the top of the table to 13 points, but focus on picking up a point or more will be absolute for tomorrow’s visitors.  Defeat for Saints could see Ross County move six points ahead of them on Sunday.

With a visit to Ibrox next weekend, Neil Lennon would surely prefer to get the job done early against St Mirren, allowing him to rest a few legs after what is likely to be our last week of the season with two games.  If we are made to battle into the second half, as we did when St Mirren visited earlier this season, it could be a long afternoon.  Taking a 16 point lead should be sufficient incentive.

    Probably the concern lies in the fact that over `70s are more liable to die from the infection .

     

    Therefore the advice is for the protection of the elderly.

  2. I’d start Eddie today. We’re down to one game a week so resting players shouldn’t be an issue now.

     

     

    I’d like to see Griff and Tam starting today.

     

     

    Forster-Ajer-Bitton-Jullien-Forrest-Brown-CalMac-Taylor- Rogic- Griff- Eddie

     

     

    If we don’t don’t start two upfront today, I think that’ll be an indication for the set up next weekend.

  3. POG – do you really wish that on the poor residents where those airports are based.

     

     

    Never mind the Coronavirus, Zombieitus can never be cured, when your DEED your DEED.

    At the moment the chance of any one individual contracting this virus from attending a football game far, far lower than them contracting flu, so the advice is nonsensical, and suggests that those giving the advice haven’t grasped the science involved.

  5. Well I’m meeting my faither in 15 mins to go to the game; he is 81, has COPD and his knees are fecked.

     

     

    He loves the Celtic more than he fears a virus

    Ok , Ernie.

     

    Don`t want to labour the point .

     

    Perhaps you have ” grasped the science involved ” .

     

    But , I don`t think that there is much doubt that ” the science ” is currently in a fog of uncertainty.

     

    Not to mention the fact that ” Science ” is not infallible , but constantly evolving .

    Hot Smoked – safe trip down to paradise.

     

     

    Am coming round to David17’s assertion we may not see the hoops in flesh much after today.

     

     

    To date, the talk has been around the risk posed by large crowds congregating.

     

     

    Last night’s cancellation of the women’s six Nations game could be a game changer.

     

     

    I suspect (but have no intel) that when the first Scottish footballer contracts the illness the shutdown is only weeks behind.

     

     

    BTW – for everyone’s assurance, every league in Europe will be planning for same.

     

     

    Voiding leagues where there is a clear leader will not be considered (England, France).

     

     

    Win today and go 16 clear.

     

     

    Sevco (28 played) then have a MAXIMUM of 10 league games to catch us (unlikely) but potentially only 4 or 5 (impossible).

     

     

    Hail hail

    They should be fine , over seventies were asked not to come but they said nothing about the over eighties.
