    Is there a cave somewhere on this cliff face, with people in it, shackled and facing the rear wall, watching shadows cast by a fire?

    Choose making a pigs ear of a national stadium rebuild.

     

     

    The SFA turned Hampden from a world-renowned cathedral of football into a laughing stock.

    I don`t know about that but there is a tricky ascent at the beginning which many people never climb.

    It’s an office block with a football pitch attached.

     

     

    Should be bulldozed.

     

     

    Preferably while the offices are full.

  5. Ah wonder if the Hibs fans would have left the seats empty if, they were being charged £49 for tickets to play a “new” club called, Sevco ?

     

    Do they sell Scooby Doo! pyjamas in Edinburgh ?

     

    Anyway,……

     

    …..oot.

    Mad Mitch,

     

     

    If you are not trolling and have a genuine interest in discussing the football performance.. Have you given any consideration to the fact that these players arrived back in Scotland at 4am Thursday morning, &

     

     

    that most of them were involved in a fairly torrid European game on Wed night.

     

     

    They were also facing a rested highly motivated & pretty decent Hibs team.

     

     

    Yes I accept the Keeper wasn’t great at the first and made a howler for the 2nd but he did make a few decent saves in the second half to keep the score down & whether you rate it a miss or a save Dembele should have scored when one & one.

     

     

    When you make a further allowance for the ‘goal’ the Ref gifted them, I think it is fair to say, we deservedly won the game.

     

     

    Even had we lost, this team had previously gone 59 domestic games unbeaten, they have this year Qualified for Group Stages Champions League, they have beaten Anderlecht 3 nil away from Home & thus have a great chance of having European Football post Christmas.

     

     

    Would you not agree that someone somewhere is doing something right & deserves a bit of praise.

  8. Hot Smoked, Thanks for copying my post. I wasn’t going to bother but then said to myself why not. I’m sick of being last post on old blog.

    It does seem to happen rather often :-)

     

    Cheerio for now,

  10. On the flip side of Seatspotting,shude we no be applauding the massive contribution to oor coffers made by the 36000 ticket buyers (alledgedly) frae govan ;0))

  11. dont know much about this motherwell manager. will he lay down to them or get stuck right in. hope the latter.

  12. Thoughts on the DB tackle — aka the “penalty”.

     

     

     

    Watching it on TV with DB running away from the camera towards the attacking player.

     

     

    In real time I thought it was a penalty — not much evidence of a tackle more a barge into the player with the ball spilling away towards the touchline.

     

     

     

    Therefore I was surprised that it was not given right away.

     

     

    I was surprised the length of time the MIB took to make the decision.

     

     

     

    However others said fair tackle from the off.

     

     

     

    Replays from other lower / ground level angles pointed towards a good tackle.

     

     

    One was 100% good tackle and picked up that the attacking player had fouled DB.

     

     

    Another in real time — let’s call it the CG angle from behind the goals — was more circumspect as it placed the ball very close to the attacking player and the angle of DB’s foot was not clearly seen to touch the ball first but the angle of the ball afterwards was a good pointer that he had.

     

     

     

    Very strange situation to me.

     

     

    Why the long delay by the MIB?

     

     

    Was he looking for support from the linesman?

     

     

    Was he waiting for advice from the 4th official via the BT pictures / replay?

     

     

     

    No matter the detail the SPL MIB Ludge has made themselves look foolish over it.

  13. BADA BING…

     

     

    My son was ecstatic with his seat, said to say a big Hail Hail.

     

     

    After Munchen and yesterday I’ll taper down now unless the huns get skelped today.:))))

    SHUGGIEBHOY

     

     

    Good point. Only the huns could take 36,000 fans to a match not at their own ground.

     

     

    Celtic aren’t allowed to.

  15. Song for BOYATA ( Tommy Gun – The CLASH . ) . Boy-Ya-Taa , he’s our Belgian defensive star , Boy-Ya-Taa , strikers try to pass him they don’t get far , he’s got dreadlocks on his head , he knows the truth is, the Huns are dead , we all love him , our Bhoy Dedryck ….

    Big day for some folks in north Lanarkshire as the green lid bin goes out after three weeks of recycling; can’t sleep worrying that I have recycled properly, it’s a lot of pressure for those recycling soldiers that have taken this role on…good luck everyone and I pray that we don’t receive a red card from bin men militia!! lol #northlanarkshirebingate #recyclingissues #savingtheplanet

  18. CC @ recycling

     

     

    The issue is not physical it is mental.

     

    Nobody in the MF wants to take responsibility and make something through the middle.

     

     

    It happens after a NT break.

     

    It happens after a weeks jolly.

     

    It happens after a two day rush job post ECL.

     

     

    ON looked so good when he started because he tried to work the ball through the MF.

     

    He did this by beating his marker — either directly or by positioning — or he tried a pass.

     

     

    However as was shown yesterday it was all about passing the ball back.

     

    Not sure if stats are being used to grade performances but we are safely first, second and last.

     

    It has become a habit, we are becoming predictable — even in a SPL context — and we are the poorer for it.

     

     

    We do not have a proper balance in the MF.

     

    I fear we won’t have it until SB retires aS he sets the tempo.

     

     

    When we open up and we have done it this season we have looked a different team.

  19. Wee Daryll Currie reckons sevco have won the league cup more times than any other team WTF ! Davy Provan has nothing good to say about Broonie in one of this morning’s rags , not surprised at Provan’s comments

  20. Thoroughly enjoyed the game yesterday. Thought we played really well and always controlled the game despite our players looking very tired after a hectic week. Great result. Well done Brendan and the Celtic team. Our fans were great too and got right behind the team as they tired and drove them onto victory. Great to see Moussa back and Big Mik bagging a brace each.

     

     

    Funniest part of the afternoon was the half time shootout by the fans from both teams. Loved the big Hibs guy saying, “I should be at work today. Don’t tell Lee Wallace.” before extravagantly bowing three times to the Celtic end. Great craic.

  21. MADMITCH

     

     

    I think you should watch the game again, particularly Moussa’s goals and the chance he missed..

     

     

    Not to mention the rest of the game..

  22. hilarious, the usual gurgling from those who hardly ever choose to pay to go and watch Celtic from one season to the next,moaning about Hibs failing to sell the ticket allocation they asked for. Maybe the dodgy stream made it look worse than it was.

     

    Anyway I doubt very much that any Celtic supporter who wished to be at the game yesterday was denied the opportunity

     

    Judging by the huge numbers of tickets being offered for sale in the vicinity of the ground yesterday the only outcome of an increase in Celtics allocation would have been financially mugged supporters holding aloft two fistfuls of tickets rather than one.

     

     

    Btw There is Italian and Spanish fitba on the telly this afternoon

    Interesting not even Pedro or Ali on BT daring to state any ambition to win the cup…reaching a final is the fulfilment of their ambition.

     

     

    I really hope Murderwell win.

  24. I really do wish that BT would stop showing those crowd shots. Cos I still haven’t seen one, haven’t seen a single one….
