Not even close to top McGregor goal into that net

208

I know you have soft spot for Callum McGregor. He has been a rock for Celtic for so long that even last season’s disappointments were never regarded as a reflection on the man who Ange Postecoglou will almost certainly confirm as his first captain at Celtic.

Good players in poor teams look anything like good players, though, and Callum ended the domestic campaign with little to look back on with satisfaction. I’m not going to tell you the Scotland national team is any good, but they have the infrastructure of a functional team, which despite so many accomplished players, Celtic did not possess last season.

Fix the infrastructure and Callum McGregor is one of several who will flourish. Loved his goal last night, but it is not even in my top two of his into that net, not even close.

  1. I would like to see English teachers use the OBON idea as a legitimate topic for discussion in a lesson. The outcome of such discussions might not be quite what the OBON creators had in mind.

  2. My Celtic Matchday

     

     

    I was guided by the Celtic Ticket Office to resolve my problems with applying for the Celtic Matchday scheme when I was getting “You are not eligible to apply” messages

     

     

    The issues was my fault – not a system fault.

     

     

    Although I had followed the link from the emails from Celtic which took me to a screen to apply for the Matchday, I did not realise that I had to go through the login procedure to before I could select what I wanted to do. Once logged in, it was sorted in seconds.

     

     

    Mea culpa

    I listened to some of the Neil Lennon interview and there seems to be a lot of bad blood between him and Leigh Griffiths.

     

    I hate hearing Celt on Celt stuff. That needs kept away from our rancid SMSM.

    Lennon saying Griffiths came back unfit at the start of the season.

     

     

    What made him think that this was acceptable in our most important campaign for years/

     

     

    Punt him now.

  5. I wish Neil Lennon would stop bumping his gums ,he has nothing too do with Celtic .

     

    Remember he said he would tell everyone what sally said to him ,went quiet on that didn’t he .

     

    Lennon earned respect for the abuse he took but as a manager he was hopeless.

  6. onenightinlisbon on

    Lennon doing as expected. Taking a swipe at everyone apart from himself in the events of the last season.

     

     

    As predicted, he will cosy up to the very media that stayed silent on the treatment he was receiving and indeed contributed to it.

     

     

    Pathetic.

    “I hate hearing Celt on Celt stuff. That needs kept away from our rancid SMSM”

     

     

    Agree with that.

     

     

    Unfortunately, it always eventually comes down to money.

     

     

    Two individuals, each with personal issues, looking to sustain current or recent earning levels.

     

     

    Harder to do when it’s you (and not the other guy) at fault for your performance.

     

     

    Accusations, hints, digs, jibes routinely deployed in such circumstances.

     

     

    Self reflection is tough (for everyone).

     

     

    Hail hail

     

     

    Keep The Faith

     

     

    We’re Not Half of Anything

    We share a city AND NOTHING ELSE

    We were told fitness regimes and monitoring of each player was being carried out over lockdown.

     

     

    If Leigh came back a stone overweight, was he sending in false results or were things not monitored quite as strictly as was said?

    If so then he should have been punted at the earliest possible time.

     

     

    Looks like a number of players were not taking the season very seriously at all.

     

     

    Although Lennon himself said recently that the fans were obsessed with the ten.

     

     

    Clearly the playing staff and management team were not.

    Very true.

     

     

    I think if Griff wants to impress Ange then he needs to do it with a football in front of him and not a microphone.

    Or the fitness and medical team…………….we will never know what went on behind the scenes post lockdown and the lead up to the start of last season. whatever the problems, it destroyed our season.

    Totally.

     

     

    Mismanagement at every level and look at the state we are in so close to the start of our season.

    “Or the fitness and medical team…………….we will never know what went on behind the scenes post lockdown and the lead up to the start of last season. whatever the problems, it destroyed our season.”

     

     

    To me, it looks as if management was not in control of lots of different scenarios, maybe it just all got a bit too much for him, beginning to look that way considering all the various problems at the playing level that has come to the surface por cierto.

    LG should not be offered a new deal.

     

     

    38 goals in his last 4 seasons. Since getting a new contract he has been posted missing.

     

     

    He had one truly exceptional season in 15/16, scoring 40 goals. His next highest total was 20 goals in season 14/15.

     

     

    15/16 was a complete aberration. He is unprofessional and unreliable.

     

     

    He will be 31 in August. He has not looked after himself, so I expect his decline due to aging to be more severe than a model professional’s.

     

     

    Get rid of ASAP.
