Livi’s only win since August hangs over Celtic


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.

    If Leigh can get himself Back BIG TIME, Celtic is gonnae really Flourish.



    Odsonne is a Mega Team Player after excellent coaching. He is a young yin and defo needs to be protected as much as possible – despite his formidable frame.



    Praise the Lord we have the most Excellent Neil Managing the Celtic team when there is a challenge that is very dangerous.



    It is wierd, I reckon Brendan would have cracked going for 9 (then hopefully) 10 in a row – he was not remotely backed player wise – as I say it is wierd how things happen.



    The Lord Almighty – What a Story teller.

  2. Neil has had some Stoatirs (in the good sense) of Players brought in.



    Real Hidden Gems – it isnae coincidental.



    My Favourite phrase!!!!



    “Noone knows Anything.”



    Well Apart from the Almighty.

    Good evening all from the Star Bar. The karaoke singers in the lounge have reduced the fixtures and fittings to rubble. Eegads. 😳

  4. I’d start with Leigh G and give Lewis a start, Lewis will really have to make it happen as well, if not out on loan again and bulk up.



    I expect Livingston to play an under strength team – their Manager knows whats coming, the Referee last game was abysmal with the….och.



    Lenny is a lot better this Time round as Manager.



    Be ware!!!

  5. Never watched Star Trek so have no idea.



    Being ignorant is bliss, Believing in The Lord Almighty is just Awesome.

  6. ‘GG,



    Debt is the Monster of our society.



    Bling this Bling that and here debt it up.



    Debt is crippling. Stop consuming sh!t……



    I mean stop buying a product a year later that likely has more security features than any actual UPGRADE to the actual phone.



    Pope Francis is right in wan respect, we are consuming far too much but that isnae to dae with climate change.

    I’m so excited, I cannae wait for 13:45.



    Lenny has the Bhoys rocking so much it is a True Testament to Himself to be Brutally frank.



    Not the easiest of jobs to take on.



    I knew he had started it, the Bombs and Bullets etc…. wtf.



    Lenny Bhoy go and finish the Job and get Celtic another European Trophy.

    BRRB (sorry not BRB),






    Craig Charles was doing a 30 minute mix at roughly 4:30AM in the morning…. BBC2 driving hame.




  9. ‘GG,



    Just Magical.



    Not for me to Judge anyone.



    The Great Falling Away means wan thing.



    Lenny is there and is DEEEEElighted to be there.






    It takes Time.



    He felt wanted again in Rome of All places.



    It’s the whole structure of Celtic that is doing so very well.



    And yet it is the Holding back that annoys so many (including me).



    Our recruitment this Summer has been excellent.



    Neil – Go and make it Happen.

    For all you Country Music fans out there BBC4 @ 9pm has a treat in store for you tonight.


    New series by renowned American film maker Ken Burns (Civil War/Vietnam) will look at the history of that particular genre. Narrated, appropriately some might say, by Peter Coyote….


    Howlin Wolf wasn’t available




    Celtic Mac,


    Thanks for that.


    Was having a quiet night due to work this morning so watched this – first two parts of a nine-part series.


    Really intetesting and I enjoyed it!

    Celtic Mac,


    Sorry, missed your nom in the copy and paste!


    Also for the typos in my post!


    Phone typing – which I hated at first – now just a little less – when it’s the only way I use this and other sites now.

  14. Celtic, Celtic that’s the team for me,


    Celtic, Celtic on to victory,



    They’re the finest team in Scotland, I’m sure you will agree,



    We’ll never give up till we’ve won the cup and the Scottish football league.



    They come from bonnie Scotland, they come from county Cork,


    They come from dear old Donegal and even from New York,


    From every street in Glasgow they proudly make their way,


    To a place called dear old paradise and this is what they say.



    Celtic, Celtic that’s the team for me,


    Celtic, Celtic on to victory,



    They’re the finest team in Scotland, I’m sure you will agree,



    We’ll never give up till we’ve won the cup and the Scottish football league.#



    There’s Fallon, Young and Gemmell who proudly wear the green,



    There’s Clark, McNeill and Kennedy the best there’s ever been,



    Jim Johnstone, Murdoch, Chalmers, John Divers and John Hughes,



    And sixty thousand Celtic fans who proudly shout the news.



    Celtic, Celtic that’s the team for me,


    Celtic, Celtic on to victory,



    They’re the finest team in Scotland, I’m sure you will agree,



    We’ll never give up till we’ve won the cup and the Scottish football league.



    Repeat all the way till you see the stadium CSC

  15. Hope the bhoys can run riot today. 10-0 as a marker for the run in to the final and the winter break.

  16. Hunderbirds are Gone on

    Good morning CQN from a grey skied Ross-shire. Haven’t got access to my back garden “weather station”, so I don’t know the temperature, but feels less cold than at home. Taking a drive to Ullapool today, it’s only 40 minutes drive from the hotel we are staying in.


    ALASDAIR MACLEAN – Not that far from you today. I got mates From Dingwall/Maryburgh, we must catch a beer one day.


    I will have to deftly steer Mrs H to be somewhere with wi-fi for 3pm. Will be relying on CQN Updates.



  17. GuyFawkesaforeverhero on

    Good luck to the Celts today. Welcome back Leigh, hope to see you in the hoops later.



    Everyone has the same country music song in them, “I know what I was doing, but what the hell was I thinking?” The Griff’s version will run to more verses than Gilgamesh.



    31213 is the new 123211 so it’s Taylor, Jullien and Ajer manning the barricades. Scott Brown repels all boarders. McGregor and Ntcham to form an impregnable wall, from where we launch Christie in support of Forrest, Frimpong and Oddsonne Everpresent.



    Adds up to chances galore, shots raining in, headers flashing, thrills, spills, another winter wonderland.



    Score prediction: 1-0, Christie (pen). MoM Fraser Forster. Can’t wait to be there.



    Celtic forever

  18. Guy


    You missed a zero and there was a typo in parenthesis. I think you meant:



    10-0 , Christie (ten).
