  1. @Celtic line up v Betis ……

     

    Hart, Juranovic, Starfelt, Carter-Vickers, Ralston, Turnbull, Rogic, Soro, Jota, Montgomery, Ajeti

     

    Subs: Bain, Barkas, Scales, McCarthy, Urhoghide, Shaw, Murray, Henderson, Welsh

  2. The real reason is that Rangers didn’t want their fans embarrassing the club with their displays of racist and sectarian hatred towards Lennon and Sutton in full view of the TV cameras.

  3. Turnbull and Rogic in the same midfield for a game like this is like taking a spud gun to a gun fight!

     

     

    Prove me wrong.

     

    Please!!!

     

     

    HH jg

  4. I’m off out now for dinner then theatre. Will keep phone switched off and watch recording when I get back.

     

     

    Enjoy the game everyone and Hail Hail.

    Thanks Embramike

     

    couple of points

     

     

    1. why 2 goalies on the bench?

     

    2. interesting that Starfelt gets the nod over Welsh

     

    3. very young bench

     

     

    mon the Hoops

    I always struggle with the ‘not match fit’ thing

     

     

    If you are on the bench, you are expected to able to come on at any point

     

     

    If you are always on the bench and get little time on the pitch then you can’t be ‘match fit’ by the definition of playing regular games

     

     

    We used to drop players into the reserves when we had them to keep players ‘match fit’

     

     

    So are our bench ‘fit’ but not ‘match fit’ ?

     

     

    Ajeti and Griffiths from last season are great examples. Lennon said they were not fit but wouldn’t play them.

     

     

    i’m confused

  8. Game is on in Ireland on Virgin Media 2 so I’ll miss out on the commentator controversy but at least not have to get a dodgy feed

     

     

    Mon the Hoops

  9. Hart, Juranovic, Starfelt, Carter-Vickers, Ralston, Turnbull, Rogic, Soro, Jota, Montgomery, Ajeti

     

     

    Would that be 4 4 2

     

     

    Hart

     

     

    Ralston- starfelt-cartervickers- Juranovic

     

     

    Turnbull-Rogic-soro-Montgomery

     

     

    Jota ajeti

     

     

     

    Go to work Celts do your best.

     

     

    HH

  10. I think Montgomery could be brilliant in the forward left side

     

     

    Rogic and Turnbull need to get the finger out on the tracking/tackling to support Soro

    ‘Is there a poll that confirms this?’

    Holyrood election.

     

     

    Now to the fitba.

  13. All this talk of spuds is making me think we might see some agricultural defending.

     

     

    Who would win in a fight between a kerr’s pink and a yukon gold?

     

     

    HH

     

     

    Ps Looking forward to this one.

  14. Back to Basics - Glass Half Full on

    BT Sport’s next step should be a simple one.

     

     

    Formally complain to UEFA.

     

     

    The broadcaster pays gazillions for match rights and access.

     

     

    Which UEFA then hand the majority of over to clubs.

     

     

    Ridiculous decision (and excuse).

     

     

    Wee man syndrome by wee Stewartie.

  15. Tough ask tonight, but here’s hoping.

     

     

    Bench is frighteningly thin, as is squad.

     

     

    Have doubts about Mccarthy if he can’t get in this team. Maybe it’s getting up to speed post Covid, but if he can’t start these games I’m worried. A 4 year deal as well!

  16. Stiliyan Petrov is now the BT Sport pundit for tonight’s Celtic game, from London studios.

     

     

    BT Sport will return to Ibrox with Darrell Currie and Ally McCoist/Davie Weir for the Rangers vs Lyon game.

  17. Ange tells Celts: “Make your own history”

     

     

    By Joe Sullivan

     

     

    Such were the scenes in and around the confines of Seville on May 21, 2003 that even in defeat in the UEFA Cup final, the city has become a shrine for Celtic supporters.

     

     

    No doubt, there will be Hoops on show in Seville today and tonight, but sadly there won’t be the mass pilgrimage one would expect on any Celtic visit there.

     

     

    This time, though, there will be a strong presence of Sevillians and the venue will be the Estadio Benito Villamarin as the Celts face up to Andalusian side, Real Betis in the UEFA Europa League Group G opener.

     

     

    Ange Postecoglou said: “We’re looking forward to it, there’s a historical significance with us going back to Seville and it’s an opportunity for us to test ourselves against a very good side away from home.

     

     

    “And we were so pleased to get into this group stage because we knew that we’d get some pretty exciting fixtures to be involved in.”

     

     

    The circumstances are different tonight but the manager has called on the current crop of Celts to make their own history.

     

     

    He said from Celtic Park before the team jetted out: “When you walk around Celtic Park there are images of Martin O’Neill or our fans on that day – the past experiences of Seville and European competition, they are everywhere and, of course, they have an impact.

     

     

    “It would’ve been great if we had some traveling support across there because it’s a journey you want to share with your supporters.

     

     

    ‘But irrespective, you understand the historical significance but it also motivates you to make your own stamp.’

     

     

    “And that’s what I keep saying to this team, is that they’ve got an opportunity to create their own moments in this great football club’s history and create nights that hopefully can be talked about by future generations of players who come through these doors.”

  18. I have complained to BT TV about their cow towing to the hun thugs.

     

     

    Won’t be renewing after my present deal expires.

     

     

    They are a disgrace.

     

     

    What happened to standing up to thugs and supporting your staff?

     

     

    Spineless cowards.

  19. Interested to see how Montgomery performs in that position. I think it could suit him, as he doesn’t look like a natural full back to me.

     

     

    Free game tonight, as Sunday is more important

  20. Based on hee-haw…am going for a hard fought 2-1 win for the Bhoys ;-))

     

     

    C.O.Y.B.I.G.

     

     

    H.H.

  21. Good and bad are concepts created in our own minds. In reality they are just related to events that occur independent of our being or consciousness. We must accept those events – we must not let them affect our state of being.

     

     

    Until that own goal goes in after 8 mins…

     

     

    ;)

  22. no expert on the planet can predict how celtic will perform tonight – once again we are unable to field a team who have played together + having top quality players out injured.

     

     

    You’d have to go with a convincing win for Betis based on that + with home advantage.

     

     

    Can Celtic find a performance and draw from Seville energy?

     

     

    hail hail Celtic!
