Pity help Kilmarnock


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.

  1. Cannae sleep…..and I really need to.


    Walking out of a football match? Never done it….never will. It’s yer team, ffs, you stick with them through thck and thin. And you never know….games are won in injury time….


    Also, it’s about that much derided concept these days (even though many profess it) :




    By the way, the only matches I ever attend are CelticF.C. matches.


    I must rectify that. I live near Bournemouth F.C. and a few Celts I know quite often go along for the craic, and the atmosphere ; they’re no a bad wee team.

    theres no one above criticism, and neither there should be


    I think youll find he has been criticised on here albeit more regularly by some than others, but criticism nonetheless, in my opinion some of its justified, at other times it seems were just having a go for the sake of having a go, there are others in the mix for our “failings” NFL as the Manager takes it on their behalf regularly, are we disappointed at times? yes of course we are, are we frustrated at times? absolutely


    but tell ye what no one was disappointed or frustrated after both Barca home and away,


    No one will be disappointed or frustrated come the end of the season when were Champions…again


    We could do a lot worse than have NFL as our Manager, in fact in recent years we have.

  3. In the heat of Lisbon, Noone is above criticism, we are all painfully aware of the games lost particularly Cup games in Hampden. On the other side of the coin we are also aware of our brilliant Euro campaign, that saw us come through 2 Qualifiers and then get out of one of the toughest Groups in the Competition. I think to a large extent the Euro run has saved Lenny from more scathing criticism and I would say that the Scottish Cup has now become hugely important. If he lands the domestic double, I reckon all will be well in Paradise but if we bow out of Cup I expect the rumblings of discontent to grow. Personally I am 100% behind Lenny and believe he will come through for us.

  4. El Clasico a horrorfest? Surely you jest. Gladiatiorial, atavistic, tribal, political and cultural opposites. Football, flamenco style. Blood and guts. Rivalry at its best.

    The R*ngers……..you have been found guilty of the most serious crime ever perpetrated in Scottish football history. I have no alternative but to impose the most severe sentence at the disposal of the court. I sentence you to be taken from here and hung by the neck until dead.


    Oh, what’s that clerk of the court?……They already are dead? Well ,yes hrrrrm let me see…..hrrrmmmmm…….court adjourned for 30 minutes for a couple of large pink gins……..

    no, anything but comfortable



    Che…mostly agree..but still not comfortable with Sunday’s escapade.

  7. There’s a slaggin’, and then there’s constructive criticism. Both can be valid; one’s emotional and comes from a dsappointed heart, the other from informed analysis.

    Tallybhoy ..



    Ah -Abatino !.



    The absolute master of the final pass . Never tire of watching an old tape featuring his pass for Milan’s 4th v Ajax in 69 . Genius !

  10. Did you have a camera with you in Seville?



    We’re looking for some supporters’ photographs to use in the new edition of CQN Magazine.



    If anyone can help can you email the best ones only (ie just 2 or 3 per person) to celticquicknews@gmail.com – obviously we will assume your permission to use in the magazine. Thanks in advance.

  11. Actually, I’m very comfortable where we are as a club, top of the league, by a distance, Champions, in the last 16 of the CL, Scottish Cup to look forward to.


    What’s not to be comfortable with there.


    If you want to find negatives you can, but really.


    Oh and the Huns are Deid, what not to like

    Try and get a ticket for The Black Crowes. They’re playing the O2 in Glasgow in march. As close to 70’s southern rock as you’ll get. Great live band.

    That`s more like it!!




  15. Anybody who thinks . that we will roll ayrshire huns over is i fear being a tad to hopeful with there optimism.



    sheilds has shown he knows how tocause us problems . and also unless we get a very early goal then it could well be a tough night .



    we should hammer them ,then again look at the teams we should have hammered this season at cp .



    paul your reasons above are all very sound but celtic are quite fragile the boss is under pressure . his own making i add with some poor results . which seem to be overshadowing the good times so far this season .



    the players are hot and cold like the katie perry song



    and the fans (us) bubbling under with discontent .



    things should be better than this they are not and this kind of game can be a pain


    i for one will take win 1/0 and move on .



    also should all things click tonight and we get a 4 or 5 goal win the players


    should indeed be reminded about







    Its uncanny the amount of poor games have happend after a good result where everyone was happy with a performance .





    hot and cold csc

  16. I wonder how many of the knobs that called SSB about lack of Juve tickets will be at the game tonight??




    I would have a wild stab and guess………………….not a single one…….GIRUT.

    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?





    Since each of us can only answer for himself, I am happy to give you my own opinion.


    The answer is a very definite YES.


    The man is doing a magnificent job & will have my unquestioning support for as long as he stays in the job.


    We are now in a place we could only have dreamt about when he took over.



    Comfortable ?




  18. Looks like Stoke are revolutionising scouting…lifted from BBC article….





    Pulis added: “Brek is a very, very exciting player, and one who we believe could go on to become a very good player for Stoke.



    “He has terrific pace, a very good left foot and he is capable of scoring goals.



    “If you look at the clippings of him on the internet then you will see what he is all about. I believe he has all the tools needed to be a success here, so hopefully we can get the deal done.”

    Big G@ 14 45.



    Brek Shea ?.



    Saw him playing for the USA V Italy . He won the MOTM award. He looked like a right good player . Italian commentator said that several Italian Clubs had been very interested in him but alleged lifestyle issues had put them off. Pirlo spoke highly of him.

    Liked this one from Supersport,com…



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



    Clearly they’ve done their homework…

    Are you comfortable in the bottom teir? Scroll on, Hunboy.

  22. South Of Tunis



    I hav’nt heard of him having any lifestyle issues apart from he likes to paint and show’s his work at art galleries. Maybe too beatnik for the Italians. Does quite a bit for charity too I believe. He had a rough 2012 with a bad injury that required surgery and has just recently returned.



    I would keep an eye on him if he does join Stoke, he should be picked up by one of the big 6 down there within a couple of seasons. He fits into our current business model for player acquisitions and price range and potential sell on value. Could be we have looked at him and decided against it but personal opinion is he would have been worth the risk.




  23. Just phoned me oul fella there,


    “Hows the weather in the Calton?” I asked, knowing full well its blowing a hooley and bucketing down, if im being honest I was half expecting him to say its wild, think ill give the game a miss tonight


    “ach its a wee bit windy..but itll pass over, and I dont think that rain will come to anything” he replies


    “you reckon?” I asks


    “och aye..cracking night for the game….you ARE going” he says with the emphasis on ARE which was more an order than a question


    “so what ye up to then?” I reply trying to deflect the order


    “Im just looking out my big coat and scarf for the night…ill see ye at the polis horses at the jungle quarter past seven dont be late” Click.


    I swear he could feel my red face through the phone line…


    Me oul fellas 83 on St Patricks Day, if he can stretch his wee bandy legs up the Gallowgate to watch the Tic in this weather then his big daft lump of a boy can follow suit.



    Order received and fully understood


    Were going


    Killie are due a humping.

  24. Paul. I disagree that tonight will be anything other than a huge challenge for our team tonight.



    The number of malcontent consumers who seem to think the club has a divine right to win, post rangers, will be out of the blocks quick with their abuse at CP tonight. God help whoever misplaces the first pass.



    I wish we were away where at least the team does not have this handicap.



    We don’t care if we win lose or draw ?


    Best supporters in the world ?


    Yeah right.
