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’.

    If you were wearing a Celtic top and had just been picked up off the ground in front of a broken off sales window with a brick in your hand and you were allowed to pick your judge and you were offered a choice of three judges.



    Scott Kenneth or Heidi … Who would you choose ?

    When you consider what we are up against the biggest insult and the most dangerous action against us is from our own board.



    There desire to have us regroup into a bunch of apolitical flag waving wwf retards leaves me with nothing but disgust and contempt for them and unmistakenly exposes them as the blood sucking leeches that they are. Celtic fans my backside.

    Sevco and all remanants of the old hunnery should be obliterated .If not we are not dealing with sport but a connivance to maintain a Scottish tradition via the SFA and SPL that has nothing to do with football. Its a Scottish thing a cultural thing even the courts cant “bear” to see them gone. Not all cultures are equal. Some need to die.


    Educated Ethiopians who live in the West still think female circumcision is acceptable. Israelis still think murder quotas of children are a good thing.


    Some cultures should just rot and die.


    However, how does Celtic see this culture? something to die or something to die for and cherish?

    The establishment trying not to upset the proles by exposing themselves.




  8. Estoril,


    I have a sneaky feeling Santa will be granting your wishes. In the meantime enjoy the spectacle of orcs armed with pitchforks and torches waiting to be led to revenge when nothing happens. ‘ there’ll be nae burnin here tonight! ‘

    the most ever gained by both present and former Scottish


    clubs in the Champions League group stage.

  13. Re. Spartak sacking. Good or bad for Celtic?


    It’s bad for Celtic in my opinion.


    Biggest Spartak problem at the moment was the discipline in the dressing room and on the pitch.




    Artyom Dzuba when asked about the game today said: I do not want to give any explanations. Speak to our coachxxx.


    That word coachxxx is Russian idiom that comes from word “coach” but as a new noun it’s offensive word. That stands for coach but the poor one, useless and stupid. I don’t know if similar idioms exist in English language?


    I can imagine the coach who will come and make the discipline the priority. That is half of success. Players like Dzuba will be kicked out the door.At least few Spartak players spent the night before derby game in the most expensive night club in Moscow. Pictures leaked out to the media today.

    At what stage is the Russian league at ?? Ie when did it start …when does it finish



    Do they have a winter break ?

  15. Zbyszek



    I don’t know if similar idioms exist in English language?



    Yes they call them ally mccoist




    Will the new manager be a quick appointment

  16. ….PFayr



    Spartak will play against Zenit St.Petersburg in Moscow on 2 December


    Then the game against Celtic.


    They will play last game against Rubin in Kazan on 10 December. Winter break after that game. For the rest of the teams winter break starts after 12th.

    ..and, correct me if I’m wrong but there wasn’t any protest from this new club, or LL

  18. cheers jobo.



    i think iv’e been to school,worked with and had a drink with a few on here.





  19. thetimrieper



    That means I need to edit Dzuba:


    “Artyom Dzuba when asked about the game today said: I do not want to give any explanations. Speak to our Ally McCoist.”

  20. How many goals does Lionel Messi need to surpass Gerd Mullers record of 85 goals in a calendar year ?


    An incredible feat by both players no matter how many more wee Lionel scores, though I hope he bags 4 against Benfica to get him close to or beat the record:))

  21. Leftclicktic



    I’m sure the commy mentioned about 5



    Lets hope he he has a dry few weeks ….Spanish don’t play at Christmas mind

  22. Zbyszek



    Exactly, also means this-” the poor one, useless and stupid.”






    Think he needs 7
