Nine is coming, get emotionally ready for it

261

If Celtic were not so “relentless” © Steven Gerrard, Kilmarnock’s early goal could have led to a consequential result for the champions, but the win was never in any real doubt.  This is a team with oceans in reserve.

Jozo Simunovic conceded the penalty that led to Kilmarnock’s goal.  Thereafter, the central defender seemed compelled to atone, which he eventually did, with an assist for Odsonne Edouard.  With no shortage of talent and still only 25, Jozo will forever struggle against injury.  I cannot make my mind up on what I expect from the player in future.

While Celtic were beating Kilmarnock, news filtered through that Newco bucked the trend of recent away league defeats by picking up their first point from nine on the road.  Grinding out points like that are the reason Gerrard’s men are comfortably ahead in the Best of the Rest race; they lead Motherwell by 22 points.

It is now not matter a question of if, but when, Celtic win the league.  If Newco win their game in hand, Celtic will have a nine-point advantage, with a goal difference surplus of 20 over their nearest challenger.  ‘Nine’ is coming, get emotionally ready for it.

Copenhagen rested five outfield players in a 1-1 draw at bottom of the table Silkeborg yesterday.  This result allowed Midtjyland to extend their lead at the top of the table to nine points.  The 3282 spectators at the game will be significantly different to the packed Celtic Park the Danes will experience on Thursday.

  1. Mick – the same linesman (dr evil) wrongly flagged for Leigh’s second goal. Taylor was a yard onside when the ball was played to him. Have not seen that highlighted too much.

  2. Bigbhoy…..the clue is in the name ….British Broadcasting Corporation…

    The bowels of sevco? Oo err missus. What might be lurking up there apart from a big jobby Jabba?

  10. The Club can either leave it, and think job done, we exposed the lies,or get Club lawyers onto Sky,hope it’s the latter.

  11. I don’t see why it’s a bad thing not to be counting chickens. Celtic are top of the league winning game after game. That in itself is a joy.

     

     

    I’m hoping we can tie up the league title with 3 or 4 games to spare

     

     

    Give games to Welsh, Shved, Arzani, Bayo, Soro etc.

  12. Go tell the Spartim on

    The Club or the PLC should tell Sky to name and shame who dunnit or we’ll take legal recourse and then ban communications with them until they have, they either throw whoever it was (allegedly Dickson or Traynor) under the bus, next to all the Sevco players Slippy G’s thrown under it. Id love it to be that scottish p*ick that does the formula one Craig something or other

  13. I seem to have great trouble with the site these days. There is always one comment at the top of that last page and when I refresh there is never any update on that comment. Is it just me or does the site have a technical problem.

    To be fair, Celtic have done all of that already.

     

     

    The point is, Celtic are contractually obliged to work with Sky whether we would like to or not.

     

     

    There gets to a point where the club is just damaging itself chasing revenge off Sky.

     

     

    Keep winning titles on the pitch. The PR game off the field doesn’t get you titles. Just look at Sevco.

  15. OFCOM not pursuing SKY.

     

    James Keatings case being re-examined.

     

     

    Two cases where the authorities decide what outcome they wish to achieve, then work backwards to find a loophole that allows them to wriggle off the hook.

     

     

    SPFL come up with the ‘phantom panel member’ who did not consider all of the information.

     

     

    OFCOM decide that their remit does not cover Web and On-demand.

     

     

    As we remember the SFA fined Celtic £100,000 for tapping Tommy Burns whilst he was managing Kilmarnock….the biggest fine ever handed out.

     

     

    Same SFA took no action against Oldco when they tapped Walter ‘Legned’ Smith whilst he was managing the National team.

     

    Their justification being that their rules only governed club to club tapping, not club to country tapping.

     

     

     

    Again, ‘decide what outcome you wish to achieve, then work backwards to find a loophole that allows you to wriggle off the hook’.

     

     

    Corrupt.

    Have they, i must have missed this. So who was responsible for the “mistranslation”? Sky have a choice to make they either take action, other than their pitiful apology, or they forever tarnish their already pitiful reputation with Celtic and their fans. Im sure The Rangers are contractually obliged to work with the BBC but it doesnt seem to have panned out that way.

    League 2 title

     

    League 1 Title

     

    Championship Title (eventually)

     

    Ramsden Cup Title (eventually)

     

     

    A lot of titles for a club still in its relative infancy to be fair!
