The Bhoy Boyata


Home games against St Johnstone, Hearts and Aberdeen after facing Albion Rovers in Airdrie isn’t the most taxing period for a Celtic defender, but it would be churlish not to recognise Dedryck Boyata’s form.

The Belgian central defender has been assured and confident. His pace halted a sprightly Hearts attack and an ability to elevate his considerable bulk into the air produced the only goals against St Johnstone and Aberdeen. Without him our attempt on the world record for consecutive league wins may be over.

Is he the genuine article? Maybe. What we can say for sure is that he’s not the bomb-scare he was the previous two years.

It should be no surprise we missed so many chances last night, we were without four of this season’s top five goal-scorers – surely some kind of record?

Great for those who stepped forward when needed, Dedryck in particular, but I’ll be pleased to Leigh, or Moussa, or Tom, or Stuart back for St Johnstone on Sunday.

  1. I thought BR’s decision to play DB last night against the countries second team was testament to how far he has seen DB come on in training.



    I’m happy for the Big Chap seems a very dedicated young Bhoy!




  2. A statue of Bobby Lennox? Why? He was fastest ever Celt should be a moving display! And the best Celt ever!

    As i was saying.


    Dave King could literally get away with anything.


    He could turn up outside wee Nicola’s swanky Edinburgh HQ, and shout through the letterbox, ‘Im Dave King, GIRFUY, come ahead’.


    He could even turn up at PolisScodlandio HQ, and say to the heid mason, ‘Ive got this wonderful new investment opportunity’.


    And dont be surprised if he is spotted by SKY outside the gates of Buckingham Palace shouting, ‘Let me in ya mugs’.


    He is like God in Scodlandio.


    He does what he likes.

    Chuckling away here at the sheer stupidity of warbs.


    What an arse of a man, a fool in fools clothing.


    Certainty that we will see a few quotes from the ‘top talent’ in the sevco team.


    James Tavernier will be writing a few by crayon right now.


    Hilarious idiots.


    How is it possible to be that thick.




  5. The Green Man says SACK THE Board on




    Ahhh, that’s a tonic for the soul.


    The sheer helplessness and confusion is priceless:)






  6. Apparently Warbo said he took Hyndman off last night because ‘the pitch was heavy and we need to protect the parent clubs asset’.



    Can you imagine Bren taking off Paddy Roberts for the same reasons.



    Incredible stuff.

  7. The Green Man says SACK THE Board on

    And you know, funniest of all, these huns were exactly the same when i was a kid.


    Their brains have point blank refused to catch up:)


    They are still taking their ‘baw’ hame, because they are getting humped.


    Same old hun stupidity….different century:)


    Fools Gold:)

    Alex EBT Rae summarising, the only word he knows is ‘ridiculous’.



    Scamming £500k off the tax man is ‘ridiculous’, you could say.

  9. The Green Man says SACK THE Board on

    Poor Sevco eh.


    Spend your way out of this one you rats:)


    Loving their pain, someone should bottle it, make a fortune:)

    Paul 67,



    I mentioned the DRAG factor on the last thread, which meant that we were only firing on three cylinders for the last two games.

  11. don’t know if anyone else listened to the game on Radio Scotland. They had the crowd noise from swinecastle and commentary from Paradise. All I could hear was the billy boys , over and over again. Why oh why are these barstewards not pulled up , I know if some body broke wind at Celtic Park it would be bloody headlines and the club would be heavily fined.


    This has to stop



    Great win last night by us


    Suppose the jambo lot will be kicked oot the ludge noo




  12. Huns Presser this afternoon, they put Tavernier out. He says last night was just a ‘speed bump’.

  13. Oh the huns urnae happy!



    Pumped by their cousins, and with a clueless buffoon urging them on from the sidelines!



    Happy days indeed.



    Fail fail!!




  14. Paul67 et al



    Not many would have predicted but what if Dedryck succeeds in becoming a top player while Jason Denayer heads towards the Championship with Davie Moyes? It would be great news for him, for us and particularly for Brendan, because it seemed at one point that Dedryck would be heading for pastures new. Maybe it’s Kolo who is the main influence here, and if so that is one reason Brendan bought him here. Let us hope Dedryck progresses to be a consistent confident player, if so credit to all involved.

  15. Full credit to Boyata, for being as fit and sharp as he is after being out for months, totally professional.
