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.

    Haven’t read back but I’m confident someone will have mentioned that we can surely rely on Jackie to have them fired up in the next cup tie. Surely.

    A few a***s need kicked but again just my opinion

  3. Indeed, we were a better team than Milan in ’69. I think that the ’69 and especially the ’70 teams were the best we ever had.



    As regards the wine… I don’t think that there are any rules, do what you enjoy and what you think suits the meal. I would tend to start with a lighter wine, but some reds are also pretty light. Remember that if you have a dessert wine it is more likely to be white (although there are some wonderful sweet reds, if you ever feel like breaking the bank for a red dessert wine try Barolo Chinato, which normally kicks in at around 16% alcohol). And South of Tunis will be able to tell you about the whole continent of Sicilian wines. I have a half bottle of a very special Sauternes waiting until we win the Champions League. Hurry up, Neil!

    No argument from me regarding McCourt. The point I was trying to make was that we have cover within the first team for a winger. I dont think it is nonsense to mention him in the same breath as the 2 players in question though. I think they are in the same level of ability. A difference of opinion between both of us no doubt.



    Where are all these clubs racing to buy the 2 of them if they are as good as you think? Nowhere, because they are not good enough…yet!. Like I said, leave them where they are and let them have another year developing to see if they improve further, then buy them if they are better than Forrest or anyone else in our present squad & youth ranks.



    I wont lose any sleep if McCourt is sold or given a free as he isn’t good enough for a first team berth, but, while he is part of the squad we should utilise him. Especially when the team has performances like Sunday.

    I have heard so many football cliches and one which always pops up is, “digging out a result even when your playing poorly/not on top form”.



    If Celtic had won on Sunday we would have been praising the players and saying “that’s the sign of a top side”. If the two chances that had hit the bar had gone in or if the keeper had dived the other way from Charlies penalty we’d be through and saying it’s nothing more than expected.



    Tonight is an opportunity to come out the traps quickly and play at as high a tempo as possible. Hopefully we can make the chances and convert them.



    I think we must always remember though that when we slaughter our own highly paid professionals that the opposition has their own well paid professionals who will not roll over because they are playing Celtic.



    C’mon Celtic keep the tempo high, run hard and fast and once you dominate the battles the chances will come.



    C’mon Celtic give us energy, speed, hunger and desire then your football can do the rest!!!

    “Prefer a Buckfast myself.”





    I was a an Old England Golden boy myself. Only problem was the green vomit!!!!






    I tried Buckfast once. The only drink I can remember chewing.



    Horrible stuff.

  7. stephenofderby on

    I used to drink lime 20/20 at the games because it was green. Absolutely hated the stuff too! Peer pressure

  8. Steinreignedsupreme on

    I quickly moved up to Breaker Malt Liquor … then discovered my legs didn’t work.

  9. Lets be honest. Lennon has been shown lacking this season. Hooper should be scoring 40 goals plus given the chances he gets. Nicolas, McClair? How many goals would they have bagged this season

    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.




    Have to say i am inclined to agree with that viewpoint.


    As a Night shift Taxi driver in Glasgow for 30 years i meet all sorts of Celtic”fans” rather than supporters.


    On Sunday night at closing time i picked up four guys from The Dolphin, going to various places. Very nice guys they were too, however, when the last one was left, we got on to talking about the game,the vitriol towards NL was astonishing!


    never liked him as a player,


    never liked him as a captain,


    don’t like him as a manager


    We should win everything etc etc, he topped that off with


    “i pay my money to watch Celtic win!”



    I tried to point out the hunlike attitude in that quote to him, but he was having none of it.


    i perused on how how sharing some minor cups around was not a bad thing in the bigger picture,and how as in Darts it’s 180’s (domestic cups) for show and doubles(League,CL)


    for dough,fell on deaf ears, he was adamant they should lose no games!!!!!



    On leaving i mentioned the line “we don’t care if we win lose or draw”


    and stated my position that i pay my money “to see the Celtic Play”


    and how great a time this was to be a Celtic supporter,


    All to no avail, i think the “best supporters in the world” should actually be


    “best supporters in the world except those who miss the “old firm”


    I despair!

    I Canny sing…



    Let’s play flicksy



    but keep that drumstick and the guitar string well away ;-)




  12. My goodness it’s windy out there. And a wee bit chilly.



    Keep the high balls low.



    Gazebo likely to be blown away.

  13. Evening Bhoys,



    Haven’t posted for ages. Couldn’t resist this before setting out to CP because there’s going to be a show;)



    We shouldn’t be losing to St Mirren, but we did. Pretty sure the manager has told the players that, so no need for me or anybody else to get on their backs now. Apart from the fact that it is too late now, I’d rather we focussed on building them up for future matches.



    Does anybody really want players hounded out on the back of one defeat or a few poor performances? Not me. Not when the same team have given us such pleasure already this season. I’d rather have Vic and Charlie than Balotelli ;)



    Right, off oot to cheer on the Bhoys win, lose (!) or draw!



    Hail Hail!



    PS WDH … Will try to look in teatime tomorrow. Hope yer well.

  14. Murdo



    You were a great player for us and for that I thank you.



    You never were and never have been a Celtic fan. Do no speak for us, do not try and speak for us. You have no right to speak for us. End of.

  15. sipsini, I think Phil’s article is the hottest news of the day, I’m somewhat surprised its being more or less ignored on here. Yep its still in the rumour category but Phil has previous street cred for getting the news first. Chuck was going on a couple of days ago about rich guys contacting him waving million pound cheques. Far more likely that Chuck is desperately seeking new investors if some of the original pledges that he boasted about have indeed walked away. It would also be significant if Investors were pulling out of a deal to buy Sevco shares at 70p when their list price on the Stock Exchange is 84p. Interesting stuff.

  16. There were two types of el d – rich white and old tawny. I was a rich white man myself- old tawny was for jakeys. I recall visiting Greenock where el d was on optic- the barmans gambit was light or dark pal.

  17. Shimmies-Agree about Russell,right on our doorstep.Hooper will go if not now then in Summer.Would give us some badly needed pace up front too.

    Commentators say it could have been a red.



    D’frent strokes.
