Livi’s only win since August hangs over Celtic

128

Livingston pitch up at Celtic Park tomorrow with only one win and two draws from their 10 outings since August.  That victory came against the champions last month and is the principle reason we are not comfortably ahead at the top of the league table.  We owe them a backlash, Ryan Christie, in particular, may feel motivated to ensure no mistakes are made this time.

For all their indifferent form, they are strong defensively, having lost more than two goals in one game only once in 19 outings (a 3-1 defeat with 10 men at Ibrox).

Recent home games against Motherwell, St Mirren and Ross County saw Celtic swamp the opposition early on, before the tide was stemmed, with each game not being put to bed until the second half.  This is as much about energy as any assimilation requirements by opposing defenders.

We will start sharply tomorrow but it is only possible to maintain that level for so long before players begin to pace themselves.  An early goal, when Livingston are still chasing shadows, would take the stress out of the second half.

    yesterday we were told livi will not see this as a high priority game, today they are defending their undefeated 2019/20 record against us.

     

     

    Would like to see the McGregor Christie Rogic mid used to see if they can reproduce last seasons fantasy football.

  5. I expect we’ll see much greater emphasis on game management as opposed to squad management between now and the new year.

     

     

    I don’t expect to see us worrying too much about goal difference should we be ahead in games, the pace will inevitably be dropped down a gear.

     

     

    That’s smart. Game management will be key in keeping players fresh and making minimal changes to our strongest starting XI.

  9. Dallas Dallas where the heck is Dallas on

    Fourstonecoppi at 10.27 this morning on the previous thread.

     

     

    The Art of Football site does two Nakamura t shirts. One is him scoring against Man U at a Celtic Park. It’s a cracker. The other is laid out like the Carlin’s logo that was on our tops but with Nakamura instead of Carling. The t shirts are £25.

     

     

    I asked Boca 10 at St Enoch Centre about them doing a Shunsuke Nakamura t shirt but was told it would not be a good seller. The chap who told me that is the only unhelpful member of staff I have dealt with at at Boca 10.

  10. OLDTIM 67

     

     

    I hear and appreciate what you are saying, it’s become a struggle for

     

    some of the bloggers of late, imo all thats needed is a bit of tlc from

     

    the host to bring it back to it’s best.

     

    Will it happen?

     

    Lets wait and see.

  12. Big Georges Fan Club - Hail, Hail, Wee Oscar on

    OLDTIM67 – sorry me and WeeBGFC can’t join you today.

     

     

    Me and the boys are doing a charity gig this evening for the St Margaret’s Foundation in Airdrie – if any CQN folks are there – say hello.

     

     

    We got asked at the last hoot in Machuill’s by our very own Croppy Boy, who is organising the evening – we are being joined by Lisbon Lion Jim Craig, Brian Dempsey, Pat McGinlay and ….. Willie Collum :-))

     

     

    Promises to be a great night…

    No, I wouldn’t call him a Dick head, if my memory is still working I’ve met him before,quite a few years ago,he wasn’t a DH then, and he isn’t one now.

  14. Celtic at Parkhead on a Saturday with a 3.00 k.o. just like the good ole days.

     

     

    Up early on a Saturday morning, de rigueur were Wranglers washed and pressed, college vee neck jumper, dark green with two gold stripes on one sleeve, wegians polished, new segs sometimes just for home games, and finally the new woollen ‘walk on scarf’ perfectly tied round the neck.

     

     

    A ‘friction’ at the barbers, and a Corpie bus later, we walked the London Rd, singing a song heading for the Jungle, by Janefield Street, where BBC or STV’s Arthur or Archie take your pick, walked a gang plank into the back of our big, big gang hut to film the Bhoys

     

     

    All Celts, all friends, all brothers and sisters in arms, old Tims, CQN Tims, any Tims

     

     

    I’ll see you all tomorrow

     

     

    God Bless Glasgow Celtic
