Ignore vulnerable Milan nonsense

742

The stats tell an enticing story, Milan have played thirteen competitive games since beating Celtic and won only two, but you can forget about them right now.  Celtic are good enough to take three points tomorrow but it will require a perfect match plan if they are to do so.

This fixture will hold no fears for Celtic, who have been over similar ground many times before, but they face players vastly more experienced at playing the intensity of football which will be on display tomorrow evening.  If we are to get anything from the game, we will have to subvert a team who will enjoy the majority of possession and territorial advantage, with impeccable defending and expert finishing.

We got it spectacularly wrong against Italian opposition last season, who were considerably weaker than the Spanish opponents who left Celtic Park empty handed, overwhelmingly as a consequence of diverging from the game plan which left Barcelona scrambling for a consolation goal. This is football at a remarkably unforgiving level, as Juventus let us know; you’re not in the SPFL now, Dorothy.

Did you get to speak to the CQN Girls handing out Annuals at the Superstore on Saturday?  We’ve got budget to bring them along for one last time ahead of the Milan game tomorrow.  See the video below for a glimpse of what we were up to on Saturday and thanks to everyone who has bought an Annual!

    1-0 would be great. But I think 2-0 Kris and Derk. That was my dream anyway.

    Derk got me out my seat half a dozen times on Saturday in 20 minutes of play. Craig Bellamy was the last man in Hoops to have that effect on me.

  3. Morning champions,didnae sleep well at all……bring on the Meelanio`s ……I have the feeling it`s going to be close….3-1 the Celtic…….braw…

  4. There are so many things you can say about making sausages at home.

     

     

    Are they cheaper? Yes, a little.

     

     

    Are they tastier? Oh yes, very much so.

     

     

    Are they healthier? Absolutely!

     

     

    But the main thing you can say about sausage making is “IT’S GREAT FUN!”

  5. Good morning Timland………

     

     

    Could be looked on as “last chance saloon” day!!

     

     

    Will be watching in the Dubliners.

    Said pudding is safely sliced,reconstituted,heavily shrink-wrapped,and frozen solid.

     

     

    Out of harms way.

     

     

    Otherwise I’d have scoffed it by now. No great believer in moderation,me.

    Just saw the Wayne Rooney booking against Cardiff. Interesting what Scott Brown thinks of it and all of the critical Scottish media?

     

    Looking forward to the game tomorrow morning Oz time, it is on ESPN2 if anyone is looking.

    Good Morning Timland.

     

     

    Not buying into all this p#sh about Milan being in disarray,

     

    it will take a great performance from Celtic to get anything

     

    tonight……the Greek Ghod will hopefully have one of his

    Pigs have a very small number of functional sweat glands and thus they sweat very little. Hardly at all, in fact. Because of this, pigs do not like hot climates.

     

    thats why the Hun have to roll about in shit ……..hahahahahaha braw

  22. skyisalandfill c'mon wee Oscar on

    Morning hoops

     

     

    Was up really early (about 0400) cause I couldn’t sleep. Working a 6-2 but getting away a bit earlier to drive to Celtic Park. Hoping to be in town about 5. Any grey brigade activity about that time? While I was watching Sky Sports before I ventured out to work, I saw a banner line saying that The RST are setting up a direct debit scheme to allow supporters an easier way to invest in the club. Surely that should be the company.Hoping for a really top [performance tonight as I think we will need to be at our very best. We need discipline, luck and concentration, especially in the last 15 minutes.

     

    Celtic 2 – Milan 1

  23. Good morning friends from a still-dark-but-seems-to-be-damp-and-a-little-milder-than-of-late East Kilbride.

     

     

    Tonight’s the night. Leave nothing in the tank Bhoys.

  24. Brazil has admitted that it is struggling to complete the 2014 World Cup football stadiums by Fifa’s end-of-year deadline.

     

     

    Construction problems and public protests about the money being spent have delayed the preparations…….

     

    and the protests will intensify ,leading to more and more Police aggression ….wonder what FIFA will say….corrupt to the core.ggrrrrrrrrrrrrr

  25. Well another unproductive work day awaits, counting down the hours til I leave for the game.
