Spartak sack manager Emeri after derby defeat


Spartak Moscow today sacked manager Unai Emeri after a 1-5 home league defeat against eight placed Dinamo Moscow.  Spartak are confirmed as bottom of Celtic’s Champions League group before they head to Celtic Park for the final game on 5 December.

Emeri has been increasingly unpopular since taking over earlier this year when his spell at Valencia ended, while rumours of dissent in the dressing room were never far away.  I had hoped he would remain in place for the visit to Glasgow but there will be a new man in charge by then.

A group of around 200 supporters demonstrated after the game, many chanting for the foreign players to ‘Go home’.

  1. I know a German called Herman.



    He’s known as, eh ‘Herman the German’.

    Never personal.



    But I don’t like the scattergun opinions and the butterfly mind.



    I think he is a redtop writer who’s waging a war in favour of lazy journalism on this blog.



    I find it needless, discordant, and rarely honest. I think we need less of all 3 qualities on this forum but no doubt he/they will treat that as a personal attack. He loves a good martyrdom, he does.

  3. I get the feeling that Leggo disny like Britny Spears, virtually every blog he does he mentions him.



    He reckons he will be in the Bar L soon, old minty is going to be sueing all n sundry apparantly.



    Looking forward to it.

  4. There are so many inappropriate jokes about ole Moonbeams taking people to court I wouldn’t know where to start…….and I’d probably get slagged to death,too.


    Even though he’s the villain of the piece.


    That’s the absurdity of everything tainted by t’rankers.

  5. Gene's a Bhoys name on




    Anybody think Alan Pardews 8 year contract was a good idea?





    It is for Alan Pardew

  6. As a young fella got a summer job in a House Furnishings Shop, a Lady worked there with the apt name of Annette Curtin. Much later in life I worked with a lad by the name of Mike Hunt. I kid ye not.

    If Celtic beat Spartak Moscow the 10 points will be


    the most ever gained both present and former Scottish


    clubs in the Champions League group stage.



    The great Walter got 8 points from their last two campaigns combined.

  11. I worked with somebody (a Yank) called John Thomas.



    My best effort was on the first day of a new contract. I spoke to the boss for a few minutes.


    He then said ‘Go up to the Head of Security to get your pass sorted out’.



    It turned out this head was named Mr Doorbar.

    Aye, the inside of a courtroom is the last place minty wants to be.



    I love reading that Leggo, sets me up for the day, always leaves me with a smile on my face, he’s totally bonkers, I suppose the ammount of alcohol he consumes has something to do with it.

  15. a wee rush there at the end. three carling and a best… o))



    feedthebear.. I was at that game sitting just behind yon guy..

  16. Nearly calmed down after yesterday.



    I reckon I must be mad. Every defeat taken very badly, find it dufficult to even speak with Mrs Burghbhoy . News blackout in our house .



    Roll on Wednesday.



    Every defeat is a defeat for good over evil .



    We are all Neil Lennon!



    Lenny, c’mon lets get these Bhoys flying again, enough is enough ,



    Time to shut up



    Hail Hail

  17. I worked at Cowglen for a while. Most notable accounts were in the names of a Miss Fanny Hum and a Mr.Jimmy Sai Wingwong…..I kid you not.

    A) If Celtic qualify for the CL, does our home SPL form suggest everything will be fine, we’ll compete in two different leagues and at least win the SPL.




    B) If Celtic qualify for the CL, Celtic’s continuation in the CL will hamper domestic form, and we’ll lose the league






    C) Something else




    Bored CSC
