Pity help Kilmarnock

356

Some of us will have revenge in mind tonight for the defeats Kilmarnock inflicted on Celtic in October and at Hampden in last season’s League Cup final.  Others may be motivated by Kenny Sheils frank views on Celtic’s performance at Hampden, but the dressing room will have more aspirational matters to address.

Players will have little regard for the Kilmarnock manager or previous season’s form, they will all be fighting for a place in forthcoming the Champions League games against Juventus.  After Sunday’s performance no one will be sure of their starting place tonight, even those considered un-droppable by some will have been on the receiving end of frank comments from the manager.

Pity help Kilmarnock.

    Had a chat with a Milan fan on the phone earlier ——-

     

     

    Not at all happy about Super Mario —– moan -moan -moan Good rant about Italian football going down the drain -.Watching Lazio / Juve was like watching mid table EPL ,hit and hope guff , lost count of the number of times both teams gave the ball away . Disgraceful !. Juve signing Anelka .[ really !] Zeman is right —–bunch of circus clowns..

    Never mind this hairy beat combo nonsense, what’s the word in legal circles about how the Lord Nimmo Smith tribunal is progressing?

    Mmmm, not to sure about us gubbing Killie.

     

     

    If a team sits deep and counter attacks Celtic , then we struggle.

     

    Celtic’s best way of opening up teams are when Forrest counter attack’s, Common’s is on form , or Mulgrew delivers a quality ball.

     

     

    Sheils is not mug.

     

     

    I more inclined to expect a very close match.

     

     

    Gutted that a potential treble has gone , concerned already about the potential banana skin which awaits us in Kirkcaldy.

     

     

    Killie are a distraction for this Fifer.

     

     

    Sunday is the big one.

    it has stopped now and has brightened up, I hope

     

    it stays like that.

  6. Did they ask for those conditions purely because he is a Celtic Fan? Not even found guilty yet and banned from football for rest of season!

     

     

     

    A Celtic fan will stand trial accused of setting off a flare or smoke bomb during a match against Hearts.

     

     

    Callum Connelly is accused of being in possession of the pyrotechnic item at the home of the Edinburgh side, Tynecastle Stadium.

     

     

    The 19-year-old denies committing a breach of the peace during the SPL tie on November 28 last year.

     

     

    He is also accused of causing fellow spectators and stewards fear and alarm for their safety during the incident as smoke blew across the stadium.

     

     

    On Wednesday, Connelly appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court over the incident.

     

     

    Defence solicitor David Patterson said his client pled not guilty to both charges and asked for bail pending trial.

     

     

    Fiscal depute Arlene Shaw said she was not opposed to bail, but with special conditions. She said she understood Connelly was a Celtic fan and asked that he be banned from attending any regulated football match and from entering Tynecastle.

     

     

    Sheriff Arthurson agreed to bail on those conditions and fixed the trial date in June.

    HH!!

  8. The problem is Emilio. The sooner he learns he’s a left back the better. Why were Chas and Sammy closing crosses down v St Mirren while Emilio stood and watched. Chas should’ve stayed in the box. Is it a coincidence all three goals came from crosses from our left ? Too many times he’s caught up the park i.e. Spartak at home. Of course he wasn’t helped on Sunday with the performance of Chas, Ledley who again offered nowt and Sammy wasn’t at his best- basically our whole left side. Hope to see Gershon and Stokes tonight.

    I know we can’t win every game but I object to any Celtic team going down without a FIGHT.

     

     

    I saw more effort from players like John Divers and Bobby Carroll in the 50’s who didn’t win much in their Celtic careers and whose money would be relatively poor.

     

     

    The manager sees the same problems as me but doesn’t seem able to rectify them.

     

     

    We’ll see what changes he makes for tonight, if any.

     

     

    I’d rather have youngsters with heart than some of the heartless pussy’s masquerading as Celtic players.

     

     

    If they give 100% and lose, I can accept that.

     

     

    If they look like they are not trying and lose, that is unacceptable.

     

     

    Mind you, it’s only my opinion.

  10. This is an article from a Kenyan sports website. They get Celtic Park mixed up with Hampdump but I would trust the gist of this above any msm outlet:

     

     

     

    Wanyama staying put at Celtic

     

     

    ——————————————————————————–

     

     

    by Collins Okinyo 30 January 2013, 15:12

     

     

    Kenyan international Victor Wanyama who has been touted to make a move to the English Premier League in the January transfer window will be staying at Celtic after all.

     

     

    Supersport.com can authoritatively reveal that Wanyama will stay at Hampden Park and is focused on helping the club retain its league title as well as in the ongoing Champions League.

     

     

    Wanyama added that he was tired of hearing about transfer rumours and had decided to instead concentrate on his game.

     

     

    “I can confirm to you that I will be at Celtic. We are playing well and our Champions league dream are on and right now I am looking forward to the big game against Juventus. Alot has been said and written about my intended move but I have not given it much thought and even my manager feels I should play until the end of the season for Celtic then from that point the doors can be open for a move,” Wanyama told supersport.com.

     

     

    Sources intimated to supersport.com that Wanyama’s stay in Celtic was also for his own good as the transfer fee at the end of the season might improve from what has been quoted now.

     

     

    “I can confirm to you Wanyama will be in Celtic until the end of the season. He is happy at the club and he does not want any distractions now since he is in the form of his life and he feels comfortable in the team,” the source who sort anonymity told supersport.com.

     

     

    Several teams including Manchester United and Arsenal have shown interest on the talented defensive midfielder and with two days to the close of the January transfer window no team had put a solid bid for the player.

  11. ‘Supersport.com can authoritatively reveal that Wanyama will stay at Hampden Park.’ Made me laugh. :0)

    Anyone who takes these things to games deserve all they get. A bit of jailtime and a lengthy ban seems reasonable to me. Bail conditions are subject to the accused adhering to the law whilst awaiting trial.

    I see the attendance at the Lazio v Juve game last night was 52,506 according to the ‘Gazzetta!’

     

     

    Is this a record for a Copa Italia tie outwith the final?! Still – 30 odd thousand empty seats in the Olimpico, which imo is a dreadful stadium for football!

     

     

    Buon appettito stasera!

    ‘But thus do I counsel you, my friends: distrust all in whom the impulse to punish is powerful! They are people of bad race and lineage; out of their countenances peer the hangman and the sleuth-hound. Distrust all those who talk much of their justice! Verily, in their souls not only honey is lacking. And when they call themselves ‘the good and just,’ forget not, that for them to be Pharisees, nothing is lacking but — power!’

    I’ve no problem with that,Celtic players who are not trying are not fit for a jersey.

     

     

    You’ve been watching us longer than me-67/68 in my case-so how many times did you turn to your mates after about five minutes and say-Not gonna be our day today,could play all day and still not score.

     

     

    Not often,I’ll grant you,but often enough. You just know,sometimes.

     

     

    Players feel that too,and the harder they try,the worse it gets. A vicious circle.

     

     

    I get p-d off when we lose as well,bud. It happens.

     

     

    I go into every game expecting to win-certainly domestically.

     

     

    But I never go into a season expecting to win every game!

     

     

    There were poor performances all over the place on Sunday,and a team can only carry so many passengers.

     

     

    That was Sunday. It’s gone. Get the positives from this season back into yer psyche,and roar us on tonight!

  20. There can be no doubt transfer speculation unsettles players, if it unsettles key players it affects the whole team, tonight will be tough we’re missing Fraser, big time. Let’s get this game out of the way, 1-0 will do me.

    My Dad took me to the games in the fifties and we stayed until the end, no matter the score.

     

     

    It was worse than that when, as you say, you just knew we were never going to score.

     

     

    Anyway, your right, Sunday is past, onwards and upwards!

     

     

    C’MON THE CELTS!!!

    C 1st

     

     

    LNS is highly regarded in all parts of the second oldest profession.

     

    No danger of him doing anything other than applying the rules without fear or favour. Three things:

     

     

    1. He was the chairman of the Independent Commision appointed by the SFA which sat to consider Craig Whyte’s fit and proper person status following Mark Daly’s first expose. People sometimes forget that , following his report the Judicial Panel of the SFA imposed , amongst other things, the signing ban. The written reasons for their decision were excoriating regading the behaviour of oldco and led to the infamous ‘ who are these people, I want names’ rant by Fat Sally. Directly flowing from that episode were the threats to Raith Rovers staff and Gary Allan QC which Alex Thomson did a broadcast about. LNS is no shirker and has a long memory.

     

     

    2. He, as chair of this present SPL commission (nb NOT an SFA one), went out of his way to be fair to Newco, despite the fact that they declined to take any part in this present process, by publicly leaving the door open for them to attend if they saw fit, even at this late stage. He is doing this so that there can be no question as to the detailed consideration of the matter in their absence if need be, spiking the Hun artillery for a later cry of foul in he event of Charles Green not liking anything they decide ( as if).

     

     

    3. Lastly, the fact that he also felt compelled by the media rabble rousing at the instance of Newco to publilcy make clear his independent position and lack of any prejudice was, frankly, unprecedented. A Senator of the College of Justice, who takes a solemn oath on his appointment and who is widely regarded as one of the most talented jurists of his generation having to say, in public, that he intends to do his job properly to assuage a media witch hunt set going by Charle and whipped up by Jabba and his fellow travellers, is unliley to have left him feeling well intended to bullies.

     

     

    I said to the Abbot back last year that LNS was a man to trust and he is.

     

     

    ‘Mon the lawyers.

    Router switched on,or laptop still on wifi,battery connected?

     

     

    Apparently that was my mistake…..

  27. Is the game on Telly V tonight or am I gonna have to force myself to watch Barca and Real slug it out, resort to the long ball and generally plough up the football pitch in the Iberian horror fest that passes itself off as football?

    Is NFL above criticism on this blog? We lost the league at I’ ness under him. Capitulated in a cup final v Killie. Lost to Hearts in tbe semis. Have had many an indifferent performance this season and got stuffed by a team 2nd bottom of the league who themselves lost 4-1 at home the week before.

     

    Are we all comfortable here?

  30. a look on Shortie and you’d be hard pressed to find out we were having a game at all…………..

    No, didnt do any of that.

     

     

    Just off to see a pal who should be able to help.

     

     

    Milan fan – full of nostalgia for the great side of the late 80s/early 90s – never stops talking about that side… Van Basten, Gullit, Rijkaard, Baresi, Maldini, Donadoni, Ancelotti… blah, blah, blah… Great side mind – almost as good as the Lisbon Lions!

     

     

    …and dont get him started on Gianni Rivera – South of Tunis’ favourite player!

     

     

    Later!
