Quantcast

Lennon and Solbakken rematch

130

Celtic had the chances to put tonight’s tie to bed in the first half in Copenhagen, but profligacy in front of goal and a subsequent revival by the home team mean we have to win the game and earn the right to be in tomorrow’s last-16 draw.

The absence of suspended Ryan Christie and injured Olivier Ntcham leaves Neil Lennon with fewer options than normal.  Tom Rogic is a straight replacement for the No. 10 role, but Tom has seen little football in recent months, it will be asking a lot of him to play an entire 90 minutes.  The same is true of Mohamed Elyounoussi.

Ahead of the first leg Copenhagen manager Stale Solbakken told reporters he expected Celtic to play three at the back.  He read Neil Lennon’s plans wrong, which probably gave Celtic the early advantage.  Solbakken compensated at halftime.  These are two experienced European managers, how they match up and then how they change their formations during the game, will go a long way to determining the outcome.

I was happy enough to see Newco progress last night.  We go to Ibrox three days after the first leg of the next round of the Europa League, better to go when both teams have had a strenuous midweek game than have the home side rest up.  There is still work to be done on several fronts.

  1. Team’s up…..

     

     

    Good un….Tam and Moi start, as does Taylor and thankfully not Hayes…

     

     

    No Griff, Jozo in and Bayo on the bench…

     

     

    Let’s do it.

  2. It’s sad to be talking about child abuse on the day of the big Europa Cup. What happened was a tragedy. Legal proceedings are in train. There will be Insurance Companies involved amongst others. It is clear that Celtic have acted responsibly so far. They are precluded from doing anything until Legal Proceedings are determined.

     

    Then & only then can Celtic act, If found liable in law, they or their Insurers will be obliged to make repayments, if found not liable Celtic can opt to make voluntary ex gratia payments, I would hope and indeed confidently expect that Celtic will do just that,

     

    This is one where we will all just have to wait & see, wading in at this stage is not helping.

  3. CELTIC: Forster, Ajer, Jullien, Simunovic, Taylor, Brown, McGregor, Forrest, Rogic, Elyounoussi, Edouard.

     

    Subs: Bain, Bitton, Griffiths, Bayo, Hayes, Bolingoli, Frimpong

    ” Martin Henry, the Chair of the Independent Review of Sexual Abuse in Scottish Football, issues the following personal statement in response to reports this morning. “

     

     

    The above mentioned issued the report.

     

    What does he have to do with :

     

    “Responding to milly dowlers bin raiders in Murdoch group scum/tymez.shows how far the tymez is just a big loo roll.agenda above victims and your statement proves it. ”

     

     

    You just shooting the messenger because you don`t like the message ?

     

    Herewith :

     

     

    ” On the specific reference to Celtic FC, one of many clubs referenced in the final report, the Review in actual fact states clearly that the club has gone to great lengths to address any past contacts between the club and Celtic Boys Club – and have done so effectively. This is welcomed by the Review and welcomed within the review “.

     

     

    Whose side are you on ?

  5. Sorry Bada, Didn’t see your post before I posted. Certainly looks that way to me.

     

    With Frimpong & Griffiths on bench they have option to switch to 3 at the back if needed.

     

    This is the formation I wanted against the Hun.

    Not critical of report writer

     

    Hyper critical of Murdoch bog rolls which D17s post(the report writer) is a response to the bog roll

     

    Is this clear to you?

     

    Not like you to be confused mate.read today’s Tymez!

  7. By coincidence of course, thanks to ‘The Athletic’ what is now being discussed is known as;

     

    “The Copenhagen Access Model”. Not to be confused with the Amsterdam Access Model of which some on here might be more familiar. It is a new route to Europe, based in part on the club rather than the national coefficient.

     

    Does it actually involve beating Copenhagen? That is the question.

    What`s clear to me is you ignore the compliment to Celtic and focus on your personal pet aversions .
