Test for an emerging Celtic team

316

We play plenty of no-win games, where all that can be achieved is an expected result and the avoidance of a humiliating loss, or draw.  Tonight is different.  Tonight we play the team who won the Europa League last year and who are significantly better resourced that Celtic.  When Celtic entered this group, opposition from Spain, Italy and France ensured that expectations were never going to get wildly out of proportion.  Indeed, after Sion, defeat in Madrid and a solitary point at home to Udinese, many expectations were of an early exit.

But, after four games, Celtic have it all to play for.  Two solid performances against Rennes delivered four points and a big performance this evening would give Celtic an excellent chance of progressing to the business end of European football.

This is a test for a young and emerging Celtic team.  Don’t underestimate them….

    It would be remiss of any government not to address such an important issue.

     

     

    Yes, it would be remiss but that does not mean that any government should be free to do as it pleases regardless of consequences. At least, not without the risk of coming into dispute with those most affected.

    BigChipsUK –

     

     

    No, actually that’s much clearer!

     

     

    Currently on another tab on The Celtic Viewer watching Celtic v Cologne from 1982. A full half hour of highlights featuring McStay, Collins, Mowbray, Galloway and Co.

     

     

    Great stuff.

    I remember trying to listen to that game in Bunaman on a a crap radio getting an intermitent broadcast from Radio Scotland.

     

     

    BTW, it was 92 not 82!

    TT… ref the pension statement.

     

     

    Hold your guns

     

     

    This was in response to a statement about a badly managed Private Sector Pension….

     

     

    IF someone is unhappy about the managment of their pension – then they should do something about it….. Not moan about the “bankers”

     

     

    What happened to self reliance and responsability – Feck that ill blame someone else as I cant be bothered.

    iki –

     

     

    Im not disagreeing with you…

     

     

    Now exactly how would you solve the problem? What do you disagree with in the Hutton report… ? What would you change?

  5. I know we are a broad Church, but Celtic fans who are right wing seem to me to be very odd.

     

    Btw I signed a contract, I have made my contributions and now because the market and capitalist economies are gubbed, then my pension, rights and job are all targeted. Nae chance!!

    Of all the things you would like me to do for myself….. believe me I would love to do these things for myself.

     

     

    If I can do things for myself and not be a burden on the state then it leaves better provision for those that really need it.

     

     

    Unfortunately the state in most cases prevents me… Because it knows best.

     

     

    The state however insists on intervening even wher eit is not wanted nor needed.

     

     

    Heaven forbid that the slaves were free…..

    Back in March we posted an article praising French team Olympique Marseille for their asking fans to submit their own designs for a new official kit. Marseille used the landmark of hitting 1 million Facebook fans to reward their international fanbase and are the first football club world wide to essentially crowd-source their jersey. This week the club announced that they received a staggering 60,000 submissions for the competition and that after months of development and judging – they let their Facebook fans have the final decision.

     

     

    The kit will be worn in several league games and domestic cup matches and will undoubtedly be a popular purchase for the Marseille faithful. The club initially utilised an Adidas created Facebook app to let fans mix a large variety of styles, colours and layouts – as to ensure that they were not going to have the competition hijacked and end up with a potentially disastrous end product.

     

     

    As we reported in March, this is an excellent piece of Sports Social Media innovation and is such a clever way to create more ‘affinity’ between the fans and club. Sports fans want to feel that they matter to the club, and they want to influence the way the clubs performs – both on and off the pitch. By allowing fans to design the club merchandise, not only are they uniting fans closer to the club, but they are making fans feel a sense of ownership of the club – something that is becoming more important in an industry where clubs are controlled by playboy millionaires or tight fisted faceless boards.

    Greed is good is obviously you’re mantra

  13. Not long in from today’s rally, fantastic turn out well done to all those in attendance. It was nice to see a few Tims, obviously in town for the game, applauding the marchers.

     

     

    I wouldn’t expect anything else from Celtic supporters. That’s the ethos on which our club was built.

    Interesting observation… but a bit random, not sure how you deduce that from the piece you quote.

     

     

    But hey the old leftist soundbites are the bestest soundbites dont you think

    Kojo:

     

    I’m not poor and I’m not black or a woman either but that doesn’t mean I don’t find your sermons tedious in the extreme.

     

     

    Incidentally, I work; to my knowledge I’ve never hustled anyone…

     

     

    Huns and the rich don’t pay their taxes; they make great bed-fellows.

     

    Do you pay your taxes?

  17. Just back on and read back. Damm!

     

     

    Never trust the word of someone who has been in pub since lunch time.
