Result achieved for Celtic but Danny Lennon will see promise for Saturday


It’s difficult to analyse Celtic’s performance last night.  For much of the game the players were clearly enjoying themselves and should have been rewarded with more goals, but Dunfermline were incredibly porous in central midfield.  Ki and Commons were able to stage a passing master-class which was pleasing on the eye.

The fact that the deluge of goals didn’t come is not particularly concerning.  Celtic don’t make a habit of profligacy in front of goals, making chances is more of a problem, so it would be a mistake to read too much into one game.

While Dunfermline were out of the contest for most of the evening they also retained two strikers, something we seldom see from SPL visitors at Celtic Park, so that fact that they were able to construct an attempt at goal five minutes from time was not surprising.

Celtic got what they needed from the game but Danny Lennon, who brings St Mirren to Celtic Park on Saturday, will also have seen enough to let him form a decent game-plan, especially if Celtic play a 4-4-2 with two wingers, as they finished the game yesterday.

    On a similar vein, I was stopped outside of Armagh one night by those plucky lads of the UDR. The usual harassment ensued when I answered their request for my DOB with “over 16”. I stood beside the car as they attempted to take it apart in their so called “search”. One lad had the bonnet open and leaned so far down to the engine that he burned his nose on the manifold! His head then jerked back up in shock , hit the bonnet and collapsed it on top of him ! I was almost on the ground laughing. Took me a while getting home that evening but it was worth it.

  9. ‘QPR manager Neil Warnock wants to sign “four or five” players in the January transfer window, and has set his sights on the Asian market after admitting that he went to see three players in action in a World Cup qualifier between United Arab Emirates and South Korea.’



    Do we think Ki was one of them?

  10. Just had a meeting with a potential supplier. One of the sweetners to win the contract was a corporate day at Ibrox. Somebody has there wires crossed. Really enjoyed asking him will it still be open then.
