Shuffling for spare seats in Lisbon Lions, Mikael’s woes


I’m loving the positivity which surrounds season ticket sales at the moment. You can imagine staff at the Ticket Office bouncing into work these days to deal with another new scenario. Today’s news is that a deadline of this Friday has been made for existing season ticket holders to relocate to the newly opened Upper Lisbon Lions section, before the remaining seasons are made available.

There’s now a high probability that Celtic and Hearts will both have waiting lists for season tickets, with Aberdeen not far behind. Even Hibs are felling their own Irish manager effect, as they target 10,000 ticket sales.

Pretty gutted Mikael Lustig retired at half time in Sweden’s game against Ireland yesterday because of a groin injury. Injury has been the story of Mikael’s life over the last couple of years, which will cast a shadow over the rest of his career. Sweden can continue to select him, when fit, but Celtic will need to cater for the reality that he may miss a lot of football going forward.

It’s also unlikely that he’ll attract a transfer (or sail through a medical). With the right levels of rest and preparatory work, he should be able to compete at the top level for another three years at least, but for much of that time Mikael is destined to be a bit part player.

    I do not care if Celtic do not make any statement on this at the moment.


    Winning Captains assures us that Celtic are on board and are taking action. We have to trust these guys and I’m sure the board will be no pushovers when push comes to shove.


    These things can take time and must be done diligently and correct…….patience please and let these guys do their work.

    Those russian and east european ultras are cheating. They dont get drunk . They are fanatical trainers down the gym and they are skilled in the martial arts. And they steam in without any fear. The days of the british football thug maybe numbered -in europe anyway. What a shame.

    I see St Pauli have signed Marvin Duckshe from Wolfsburg.


    Manager Ewald Lienen wasn’t around to make the photo call, so they got some other bloke to stand in, wearing am Ewald Lienen mask




    They could have got the assistant manager to do it, but that would be a bit amateurish:-)
