Watt ready to push Hooper


There were so many pleasing aspects to yesterday’s performance.  Perhaps most importantly, we won a game and scored goals without our primary creative fulcrum, Kris Commons, and without playing our backup fulcrum, Charlie Mulgrew, in a creative position.

Several players will return for Wednesday’s Champions League play-off decider against Helsingborgs but Tony Watt has given Neil Lennon plenty to consider.  He was by some magnitude the best player on the field, and was considerably more threatening than his strike partner, Gary Hooper, who has had no genuine competition for the main striker position since arriving at Celtic two years ago.  I’ve felt for some time that Gary needs to be pushed.  Tony might be the man to do this.

Do you remember six years ago we mocked Paul Le Guen’s Rangers with, “You’re fourth in the SPL…”  Poor Sevco are fourth in the fourth tier of Scottish football.  Give that guy McCoist another 5% of the shares, he’s absolutely priceless.

  1. any links to dissalowed goal from berwick?



    my mate was on telling me even craig burley could not understand what it was dissalowed for!!!!



    I know we shouldn’t be bothered about a new team in the bottom league but it has to worth a chuckle!!!!

  2. Ha !


    My first first and I read the article.


    Considering I post about twice a year, I can now retire happy.

  3. Berwick,looked more up for it,played better football and looked fitter than Servco.



    I wonder if the media will wheel out ‘They didn’t have a pre-season’. Well they didn’t have a pre-season when they beat East Fife and East Stirling. Excuses,excuses,excuses!

  4. Celts were magnificent yesterday,great 3 points picked up


    in a dangerous fixture.


    Well done Bhoys ,especially big Tony ,a direct striker,whodathunkit.

  5. The ‘rangers’ are roving in the wilderness (to them) of Div.3, still plundering and robbing the game of any remaining shred of decency. Still ‘at it’.


    Just to nail the reality of their ethos and their actions that bit harder to the wall,here is the dictionary definition of the name of the most reprehensible club in our game’s history :


    “ranger (plural rangers)


    One who ranges; a rover.


    A roving robber; one who seeks plunder.”


    I wonder where the fat one stands in their pantheon of ‘great’ managers now? How long will it take for the orcs to howl for his head? And how will the sleekit one spin this plucky effort?


    “We were not prepared for their level of footballing ability,and that is why we need to sign many many more players from the upper tiers with promises of our magic orange moon dust.”


    Absolutely, Sally…..absolutely.

    That has to be THE most obviuos case of blatant cheating ever!!! The really interesting bit about that dissalowed goal was the fact teh ‘ref’ had the whistle in his mouth before teh corner kick was taken, almost as if he was ready to blow it ‘just in case like’



    even for scotland that is truly shocking

  7. Your fourth in the SFL,


    Your fourth in the SFL,


    Your fourth in the SFL,


    The SFL Division Three!

    According to shortbread, mccoist is embarrassed.


    Well that I suppose is progress.


    He’s had plenty to be embarrassed about over the last couple of years so it’s moving forward for him.

  9. Thanks to Snake Plissken for the link to that disallowed goal…….same old same old hunbelievabilty….pathetic,miserable corruption extending its tentacles to benefit the horrors.


    Still hilarious,though,the result.

  10. Watch Snakes clip on disallowed goal,first prize a masonic apron to


    whoever can tell the infringement .

  11. There was no infringement but even if there had been, I would be amazed if referee could see it from his position through the crowd of players.


    He adopted the default setting ….. if in doubt give it to Whitstheirname.

  12. Paul67



    Not overly concerned but how long does Watt have left on his contract.



    Agreed that Hooper seriously upped his work rate yesterday, the competition will do him good.

  13. 67Heaven ... I am Neil Lennon..!!.. Ibrox belongs to the creditors on

    Feck me ………that is disgusting …… I stopped watching when the ref added on 2 minutes in the 1st half, and they scored……. This is even worse, and there is nothing anyone can do about it ………. Except laugh at the barstewards



    That draw was as good as a victory …mark hateley ….!!!! ……..Berwick Rangers tore them apart for 95 minutes……

  14. Snake P – thanks for that link!



    It’s as ET keeps banging on about, referees have a mandate to help Sevco. A clearer `good’ goal you could not get and Tumulty’s (hun ref) position was excellent. However, he did have his whistle in his mouth ready to blow for any `infringement’. Clear cheating.



    Can you even begin to imagine if that had been our beloved Hoops? Imagine the press field day!



    Fat Sally must stay as manager. He’ll probably get some more kwality signings in before the windae shuts anaw. Hehehe!!!

  15. “Fourth in the morning


    You’ll still be fourth in the morning”


    Fourth in the fourth.


    Go forth and multiply. Please.


    Just die and gie us all peace.


    : > )

  16. Stoke fans boo the introduction of Ramsey, who broke his leg a few years ago in a challenge with Shawcross. Stoke fans then obviously chant the name of Shawcross. Are they huns?

  17. That’s me watched Snake’s link 10 times and even though I shouldn’t be shocked I am.Good,old fashioned cheating alive and well in Scottish football in the 21st century.Plus ca change…….

  18. bigrailroadblues on

    The goal could not be allowed. Remember their fan’s behaviour after previous defeats in England. BRB HawHaw.

  19. HT



    I think he has 18 months left.



    I would get him signed up pdq, there are clubs sniffing about him, Newcastle for one.



    He is on well less than a grand a week I believe.

  20. Blatant cheating doesn’t begin to describe it. There must be a word stronger than blatant.
