Squad management the big question of the week


All we can ask from an international break is for Celtic players to return uninjured, which appears to be the case as we head into the intensive weeks ahead.  It even looks like Mohamed Elyounoussi, who headed to Norway after taking a knock, has returned fitter than he went.

Players like Callum McGregor, Odsonne Edouard and James Forrest would have benefited from a complete rest, but at least they were taxed in only two games across the fortnight.

Squad management will play a big part in Neil Lennon’s thinking right now.  Livingston and Rennes, who both visit Celtic Park in the next 8 days, have far more important games after facing Celtic.  Livi play six of the seven lowest placed teams they can face before the winter break, while Rennes cannot qualify for the knock out stage of the Europa League and are one of seven clubs within a point of each other in Ligue 1.

Neither will see the Celtic game as a priority, we should plan our squad accordingly.

  1. Don’t thi,nk this is the place for politics, but me, I remember the wise words of my father, quote, you can always tell when a politician is lying, his lips are moving. If I had any power over the people, I would encourage them to vote out the incumbent MP, no matter what seat they were in. That would awaken them big time.



    I will vote Farage. Did anyone see that half wit Dianne Abott the other night. She said she would borrow money to pay off all our debts,FFS


    Anyway, 6 – 0 for the good guys tomorrow.

    right now the interest rate is negative, when loans were made over the years all where at positive interest rates so borrowing now and paying bac at current rates would save the country billions, but then how would you know that when you watch corporate telly.

  3. macjay1 for Neil Lennon on

    Right now . Yes.



    Existing borrowings . No.



    Future borrowings undetermined.

    like any loan repayment conditions are set at the start,



    Existing borrowings no means nothing , it is actually an excellent idea currently being used by corporations to finance mergers.


    Can be used by govt to renationalise and fund investment in economy as opposed to bailing out failed neoliberal corruption in corporations and banks

    corporate telly keeps you half informed, ust enough to make you loo knowledgeable to the ignorant and stupid to the knowledgeable

    You try borrowing money for nothing – let me know how you get on !!!!!


    Also try borrowing money when you owe money – let me know how that goes too !!!



    Diane Abbott is a poor politician way out of her depth on economic affairs and should not be commenting on them



    My heart is crying out to vote labour but every time I hear another labour politician talk I get terrified



    For clarity It is a poor state of affairs that the lot of them (not just Labour) are lying not to be trusted idiots



    The only place that gives me a dose of logic and common sense and even a bit of humour is the magnificent CQN – and Canamalar that includes you

    I read on here much more than I post


    But Im waiting to go on a conf.Call so using my time wisely by posting on here



    In the last election Jeremy did very well


    He offered free University to Students and he would wipe any student debt



    I’ve not heard him offer the same this time



    Perhaps the fact that he nearly won gave him a fright and decided not to do it this time



    Or maybe he just did it because he was going to Glastonbury and as the demographic of the audience was students maybe he just thought oh fuck it lets wipe student debt and go to Glastonbury



    Maybe this time he should go to Hampden and announce all tax debt even by Newco’s must be paid back



    I would vote for him – I would even sing his name like they did at Glastonbury – Oh Jeremy Corbyn !!!!!!



    OK back to work must go




  8. Hello again all you young rebels.



    Boss reveals how ” he nicked ” McGinn away from Celtic.


    Do we really want to be reading that on the sidebar of CQN?


    Imo if McGinn wanted to be at Celtic then he’d be there.


    Just thought i’d lob a wee grenade in there to get away from


    Feckin politics.


    Awaiting incoming and helmet on… painted in Celtic colours


    just like the aul days lol.


    H.H . Mick

    Banks and corporations borrow money for nothing and less than nothing, the more they borrow the lower the risk, they borrow for less than nothing and charge those lower down the food chain interest, because you are ignorant of the machinations of what is happening does not make your simplistic insistence of how it should happen any more valid.


    Agree with lack of confidence in politicians but Corbyn has a record of integrity compared to most


    hen the yanks and zionists are spending so much in trying to defame him indicates to me he has a plan the may work and the integrity to implement his plan, put it this way he will not be taking us into any more illegal wars that will save plenty.


    He is focusing on a traditional labour political agenda not seen since before Blair.

  10. Agree with MM, if John McGinn wanted to play for Celtic, he would be playing for us. Good Luck to the boy, but we all know now – he’s the same type of Celtic Supporter as Brendan Rodgers, only when it suits him.

    Except it wasn’t a General Election; indeed it was called an Advisory Referendum.



    That is the difference, and no matter how you choose to portray it, it is not the stated will of the people, only about 37% of them.



    Unless of course you are referring to The Peepul. : )
