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

903

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.

    He is probably the best striker of a ball which is why I think he was given them but you need to at least hit the target. I agree we will have big Forster taking them if we keep going at this rate!

    could i ask this question……………………………where are the orcs getting the money to buy anybody?

     

    ——————————–

     

    Could be from the sale of existing players in Jan? Makes sense to stock up on cheap pros with experience of playing in Scotland if you have to sell…..

    “Whereas you are kidding yourself.”

     

     

    At least I’m honest about the team I support.

     

     

    Do you have any other clichés from the Daily Record for us?

     

     

    You must be delighted to be 7 points behind Rangers. Is it difficult for you to believe that there are Celtic Fans out there who don’t want to settle for second best, and when they raise valid criticisms of the manager, people like you question whether they support the club. What would you like, a quiz or lie detector test before people post? Do you think I would be bothered to go along to every home game if I didn’t support Celtic?

     

    No doubt you will post back telling me you have not missed a game home or away for 20 years. People like you with Blind Faith would never have got rid of the Kellys and Whites, and would be quite content with Carl Muggleton in goal and Wayne Biggins as centre forward.

    Yep, premium package £80 a year. All games home and away from midnight on the day of the game. I think there are some restrictions with European games due to UEFA’s licensing.

     

     

    Games aren’t live, that’s the only problem but if you can wait a few hours without finding out the score then its very much worth it. Did however have to get up at 6.00 this morning to watch last night’s game before I went to work.

    That answers the question about where the orcs are getting the money to buy players.

     

    How embarrassing.

    And still no one will ask the question of why they can’t even afford a paltry £100k.

    I would just like to ask again:

     

     

    Were you happy we won?

     

     

    Did you enjoy the 60 odd mins when we played some right good stuff?

     

     

    Were there any positives for you about last night? Any passage of play you particularly enjoyed?

    ryanleftback 24 November, 2011 at 16:20:

     

     

    You must be happy that the gap has gone from 12 points to 7 points in the space of a week then?

     

    Or maybe not because it looks like we’ll be catching you soon.

     

     

    Hope Sone does a better job with you than he did with Cher.

    Ah I see, cheers. I had looked into renting a proxy in the states and bouncing my internet traffic through that so I could get the live package but not stictly legal! Have you had a look at streamprotv? i tried it last night was very good and a lot cheaper than 80 quid a month.

    Bet he has contributed more to the Huns financially than Craig Whyte.

     

    What you think Ryan?

    Listen m8 most folks on here already accept that we as a club are not where we should be.

     

     

    Don’t take too much of this stuff to heart and keep posting your own opinion

     

    If on a particular day it happens to be negative then so be it, im sure that on another day it will be positive as well. Just the same as most fitba fans.

  14. clanmalirtim at 16:25

     

     

    Sorry, its £80 a year.

     

     

    Have thought about doing the proxy thing but can’t really be bothered plus I think the package you get is linked to a billing address so that might not work anyway. I don’t really mind not knowing the score immediately as the enjoyment is watching the games. Got fed up searching for links at 3.00 on a Saturday and missing half of the game.

    Any of us who have ever bought a ticket for Ibrox have contributed more than him.

    Lots of games are on Sundays and Thursdays. That might be why you are missing the links.

    Is it not a worry to you, that after playing well for 60 mins, we then descend into freefall and are hanging on to save 3 points? Do you not get my point, that it was Dunfermline we were playing, not Barcelona. All the Celtic Fans who expressed their disapproval, obviously saw something to worry them. We are 7 points behind, not something to rejoice about,

    I hear that Sone Aluko is going to gather up all the asbestos in ibroke after he sorts out the screens.

  20. CW meets Alimony

     

    CW.

     

    This is a massive club the finest in the land. One of the greatest in Europe and the world. It will be an honour for you to play for the Rangers.

     

     

    You are a class act and well worth the £100,000 compensation to Aberdeen. Well worth that amount. What do you think?

     

     

    Aluko

     

    Yes I am worth every penny.

     

    CW

     

    Every last penny. Ok let’s shake on that. You pay the compensation. You know you are worth it.

     

     

    Aluko

     

    I am worth it , yes.

  21. The Battered Bunnet on

    How much did poor ol’ Sone have to pay to use the Murray Park facilities during his trial period?

     

     

    Do the lockers return your £1 coin?

  22. The Honest Mistake (Sickened) on

    I hear there’s a few bears on FF that are willing to pay five empty ginger bottles and a year’s subscription to rangers news to join the first team.

     

    Craig Whyte is holding out for 6 empty ginger bottles.

  23. Ghuys

     

     

    These people never cease to amaze they are trying to pass the Aluko compensation news over as a tribute to the player, and a complement to the mighty Rangers.

     

     

    Delusional.

  24. Glad to read the comments from Broonie re the Newcastle rumour…

     

     

    “I’m captain of Celtic, why would I even think about going anywhere else?”

     

     

    I, for one, hope he stays. We will need his energy and direct approach when the pitches turn to potato fields and wee Forrest’s legs and body can’t take any more abuse.

  25. Re Sone Aluko seems ole jingle jangle jaxon missed out a few details with his exclusive piece..no surprise there then,why let the facts get in the way of a good story eh?..is he really paying what would appear to be a substantial amount for his own deal which may be over much much quicker than he thinks..someone should have had a word in the boys ear.

     

    dearie me,meanwhile ole craigy disappears over the hill muttering..’like taking candy from a baby”

    Ah thats what it is. When did 3.00 kick offs on Saturday dissapear to.

     

     

    I blame the huns. (if not their fault, I’m blaming them anyway)
