Hoping to see Jullien on the bench

177

Neil Lennon had the chance to assess players on return to Lennoxtown from international duty this morning but there will be little chance of any meaningful training before Saturday’s game at Easter Road.  Before the international break, the manager suggested Christopher Jullien could be back in contention for this game; it is an enticing prospect.

Christopher was key to much of the success we had last season; without his performances in the Europa League and, of course, that League Cup Final goal, the season would be remembered differently.  Despite that, there is reason to be cautious about his return.  His early season performances last year (Motherwell) and this (Kilmarnock) were well below the standard he reached when fully fit.  Not every player is a natural athlete, some take an extra three weeks to get match sharp, I suspect Chris falls into this category.

Easter Road is a big pitch and Hibernian have not been as encumbered as Celtic by international absences, so they will be rested and ready for the visit of the champions.  Chris has not played in seven weeks, the equivalent of preseason, I hope we see him on the bench.

  1. In ither news……

     

     

    A couple of hun stiffs have big number zero impact “punishment” meted ooooot

     

    while the fetid carcass is left unencumbered by sanction or meaningful impediment.

     

     

    Oh Aye.

     

     

    HHH.

  2. theBHOYfromU.N.C.L.E on

    These punishments to the doobie brothers of sevco was deliberately set high as a marker hoping some of our first pick players make same indiscretion so they can hammer us.

  3. Back to Basics - Glass Half Full on

    7 game ban.

     

     

    Football authorities look tough

     

     

    Two chumps nowhere near the first team take the fall

     

     

    The others at the party get a walk.

     

     

    Everyone’s a winner.

     

     

     

    When this season is all over just remember the tabloids had photographs ….

     

     

    …. and played along.

     

     

    Will make our league victory sweeter.

    SS- Jinky’s photo looks like Barrowfield

     

     

    The new book with historical Celtic pics had one like this and it is placed as Govan docks, so might be there, very evocative early 60s I guess.

     

     

    God love him.

  5. a couple of quiz questions

     

    in which season did celtic first compete in the champions league group stage

     

    which stadium hosted the 2003 eufa cup final.

     

    what was the only trophy celtic won in 2000.

     

    who was the celtic manager that signed lubo moravcik cyber pint for the correct answers,

  6. I think that Julien will be on the bench on Saturday unless there is an injury crisis or Covid issues. I would go with

     

     

    Bain

     

     

    Elhammed

     

    Biton

     

    Duffy

     

    Laxalt

     

     

    Frimpong

     

    Brown

     

    McGregor

     

    Elynoussousi

     

     

    Rogic

     

    Eduoard

     

     

    Ajer I think is injured, Christie played 3 International games, Ajeti is an option is Eddy is not 100%,

  7. BIGBHOY ,Duffys a liability,put him on the Subs Bench ,put Bitton or Ajer at Centre Back ,ElMohammed at right back Frimpong on the wing ,also I would start with Elyanoussi and Ajeti,and Barkas back in goals .

  8. Last week I e-mailed Jeane Freeman MSP regarding the Scottish government’s different response to Celtic and Aberdeen’s covid protocol breach and that of sevco , I today received a reply from her senior caseworker who said his understanding is that the First Minister and the Scottish government do not have any power to discipline SPFL clubs , so who postponed the games ?

  9. Rock tree bhoy

     

     

    i disagree with most of napper tandys post.

     

    sets thinking tho but so did the old kevj posts which this reminded me of. god bless him.

     

     

    i went to answer the rest and its just cogent fantasy and maybe advice to Napper to stop reading the meeja himself

     

     

    “real celtic” no i disagree with this.

     

     

    there is and always been one Celtic

     

     

    if Fergus hadnt stepped up,along with his supporter john keane then we would be at the same shame as the r2an0ge1rs2.exc they would let us die!

     

     

    the macari stuff is just no right.to much error.

     

     

    paul may well be right bout snp.his blog his shout.same goes when if ever,there is a critique of board.some targets are easier.

     

     

    Napper is correct fergus was never a rebel

     

     

    He was a rebel with a plan and cash.

     

     

    dont be a stranger Napper Tandy.

  12. PARK ROAD 67 on 19TH NOVEMBER 2020 6:48 PM SAID –

     

    “…. who said his understanding is that the First Minister and the Scottish government do not have any power to discipline SPFL clubs , so who postponed the games ?”

     

    I remember the daily briefing the lunchtime after the story broke and whilst there was a lot of anger directed towards the rule breakers (8 Aberdeen players out socialising and a Celtic player ‘secretly’ going to/from Spain and then coming on as a sub against Kilmarnock) The words then used were more around ‘I would expect that the football authorities will need to consider whether the upcoming games go ahead….’ (I only have a vague memory of the actual words but that was the implication). Later that day or maybe even the following day the games were postponed.

     

    Aberdeen (the city, not the football club) was by then back in a form of lockdown with no travel in and out so there was certainly encouragement from the government that the remainder of the squad shouldn’t be travelling to Glasgow (and, I think, Hamilton). So that took care of 1 of our games. Our other postponed game was our visit to St Mirren but I can’t quite remember why that was called off too.

     

    But, ultimately, the decision was by the football authorities albeit under what was probably pretty heavy pressure from government.

     

    I think….

  13. The Blogger Formerly Known As GM on

    ‘7 GAME BAN’ v ‘Hun nobodies thrown under a bus’.

     

     

    You decide?

  14. As I’ve posted here before I love Ballads & Folk Songs, & was just spending a pleasant hour compiling a Spotify list of Scottish Ballads & Folk Songs, digging back in my memory I had an Uncle with a fine voice and one of his standards was Bonny Mary of Argyll so I decided to add it in his memory.

     

    It’s been done by a host of singers but I wanted it sung by a Scottish Singer so I was messing about trying to get a version that reminded me of the version I had heard first.

     

    Anyway by chance I came across a version I absolutely loved sung by a Glasgow Priest Father Sydney MacEwan,

     

    1908/1991.

     

    I was amazed I had never heard of him before, just wondering if any on here knew him or heard him sing.

  15. The collections of Highland Paddy, St Anthony, and the other celtic curios are brilliant , look at this.

    a wee heads up

     

    i was listening to irish radio (NT) the other night.there was a 20 minute interview with the brilliant Christy Moore.

     

    he has a new double cd out covering all his early stuff.He talked of his life in music and song.

     

    he also mentioned bout playing a memorial concert for bloody sunday and he sang about what happened at croke park back then.

     

    he said it is on rte this weekend.maybe worth checking out.

     

    smile Corkcelt, Celtic are back tf! 😊

  21. bonny mary of argyll,macushla and I hear you calling me, were my dads songs at hogmanay, you could hear a pin drop when he started singing, mind you as a 10 year old back in 1963 that was not music to us it was just a dirge, but thankfully as you get older you recognise the the truth behind the music, john francis mcormack my dad loved and sang your songs, hope you are both reunited now.H.H.

  22. An Tearmann,

     

    Christy is magic, always a great show, Thanks for the Heads Up , will check it out.

     

     

    Tontine, I was well impressed by his version of Bonny Mary, will check out more of his stuff over next day or so,

     

     

    Another question if anyone has the answer,

     

    The chorus of Sound the Piobrach (Rise & Follow Charlie),

     

    It’s Scots Gaelic , sounds like Hacheen Foham Foham.

     

    Anyone know the translation.

    Fr. Sidney McEwan was certainly famous in the 1950s ad 1960s. His auto biography was entitled, ‘On the High ”Cs” ‘. There’s a pun in there somewhere. I believe he did a fair bit of touring as a ‘showbiz’ priest.

     

    In the 1980s he was a kind of locum priest in some Inverclyde parishes like St Ninian’s, Gourock and St Patrick’s, Greenock. Boy, could he sing hymns!!!
