Incentives all fall to Celtic for a change


After three rounds of games where everyone apart from Celtic had something to play for, the league table seems set ahead of the final weekend of the season.  Conversely, one week ahead of the Scottish Cup Final, Celtic players alone have an incentive.  This is why we can expect as close to a full-strength team as Ange Postecoglou can muster, which should mean the return of Joe Hart, Greg Taylor, Alistair Johnston, Jota and Kyogo to the starting line-up.

Results on Wednesday meant Aberdeen secured third spot and European group stage football, which will be a massive benefit to the club, fans and finances.  The turnaround since Barry Robson took over in February has been incredible.  Five years ago, as we ended our second 8-in-a-row season, we lost at home to Aberdeen on the final day of the season.  The Dons needed a win to ensure a second place finish in the table, which few of us grudged them.

Aberdeen are not in control of what happens tomorrow, that honour is Celtic’s.  We will return to form, win, and have an encouraging warm-up for the cup final.

  1. SFTB From earlier.



    Funny how you mentioned relationships. My good wife of many years says she wants a divorce. Why I asked.


    Because you always, always exaggerate.


    I was so shocked, I almost tripped over my cock

    Canamalar has moved country again, taking the Hoops into places where no Tim has gone before



    Like Captain Kirk he has 3 ears



    Left, right and final front ear…..

    Celtic should keep an eye on ICT registered players for the Scottish cup …just in case some mysterious 6ft plus bruiser forward ( on loan from Englandshire) “emerges “ from their reserves just in time for the final 🤔…would not trust that wee cheat (seeEBT list) Dodds under any circumstances 🍀

    Aye big M was getting worried about seating arrangements. 🤣. Is that rascal Canamalar not in Dubai anymore? Time he was back on. Or is he drinking super lager in Italy?😜

    Good evening all from Sharkeys. I can see an evening of hellish jokes from the usual suspects. I may take to the drink.

  6. BRRB



    Another exotic spot for the top Bhoy Canamalar



    The site has banned him, and no interaction despite the abuse he got from the site



    He has moved on




    Yes, my lack of thinking hasn’t hurt me much, I can read the writing on the wall…



    Shame about Canman – CQN legend



    Hail Hail

  8. Wasn’t Canamalar caught up in a firestorm involving other ne’er-do-wells?


    Or was it a desert storm?

  9. Chairbhoy



    I can assure you it wasn’t his fault. Paul67 doesn’t get involved either



    Join the dots

  10. The Canman broke no blog rules, none whatsoever, apart from upsetting the Mod.




    Aye, it’s worrying, but it will be what it will be and us plebs will just have to suck it up as ever.

  11. BRRB, Big Jimmy et al – great pic.



    Hope you had a lovely and jolly day, wish I was there as the banter is brilliant, had a few docs/ hospital appointments. Another cortisone in the auld knee in time to dance the day/night away manana.



    D :)

  12. CONEYBHOY @ 7:57 PM,



    Cheers for clarifying…



    Such a pity, the characters that have gone that made this blog – enough to drive the stalwarts to drink



    Hail Hail

  13. celtic mac



    Not suggesting the CanMan was a ne’re-do-well himself


    Just the company he was keeping…

  14. I believe Ange is a man of principle and is just fed up with the speculation and the burning desire of the MSM to see him pack his backs and move to England, or indeed anywhere from Celtic.


    Until he decides his future is elsewhere I will get right behind him.


    PS congratulations to SFTB on his successful dalliance.

  15. Angie, Oh Angie when will all this speculation disappear.


    Angie, oh Angie where will you lead us all from here?




    Well, I did notice that, your legendary meanders around old Glasgow Town is a delight.



    Hail Hail

    For those not worried quite enough, here is anothe little gem from the BBC site:







    Celtic fear Wolverhampton Wanderers will move for manager Ange Postecoglou if Julen Lopetegui is to quit the club this summer. (Football Insider).






    Did Micky Mole not turn Wolves while in charge of QPR after a couple of months in charge?


    Stating something like being ‘ honourable’ then shortly afterwards stalks Gio’s job at Old Firm FC.


    Ange to Wolves IMHO, no chance.

    Tomorrow Celtic football club will lift the league winners trophy for two in a row .


    The fans will party the players will celebrate and then turn their focus to attempting a real WORLD RECORD in football of an 8th treble



    The LL and assorted currants in the MSM will link our manager with a move away and push their agenda to sow discourse and generally put a damptner on our party celebrations as best they can .


    Well their wasting their time with me .


    I will be heading over to my usual hostelry at 10-30 for a pre game aperitif ,in the company of good celtic men to enjoy loads of banter and marvel at all the happy smiling faces .


    Then it will be off to paradise to show my appreciation for the team and coaching staff that have brought me such happiness this season and made such a an enjoyable occasion possible .


    Then after I’ve watched with great pride our team lift yet another league trophy aloft and do a lap of honour, it will be the boozer for a copious amount of bevvy to round off another one of many winning celebrations CELTIC FC have enjoyed whilst being the DOMINANT force in Scottish football in every honest decade in my lifetime.


    So to all you hurting currants out there in the so called MSM


    Get it right roon ye


    Cmon the hoooooops
