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. Estadio



    Ah! The old Christian chastisement – I remember it fondly!



    The nuns at the ‘oul school in deepest Ayrshire were most adept at it!



    I cant help but smile and, sometimes, laugh thinking back to those happy days!



    Best years of my life!




  2. Any truth in the rumour that Tony Watt is on the verge of signing a deal with a new agent – Bomber Brown?




  3. Paul67 etal.



    I was very impressed with Tony Watt on Saturday, in the couple of games he’s played in he scored goals and what I’ve seen of him he’s an ideal contrast to Gary Hooper,by that I mean he’s a sort of poacher,if the ball’s in the six yard box Tony would be where my money would be on, to put the ball in the net,Gary,who I have no complaint with, has been a bit lax in that area this season,but he will come good.


    It’s hard to judge a player after a couple of games but I hope that the manager continues to play him,Tony, and that goes for this Wednesdays game against the Swedes,If Neil has a few spare £££s We need a no nonsense Centre Half,I like Rogne but he’s still a work in progress Centre back,he’s got a few things to learn yet,I’m happy the way the teams shaping up,in fact no complaint’s from me about the teams formation,all I see is improvement, on improvement.



    Enjoyed my malt whisky tasting day out with BT,and MWD.and I can see us having another session soon,The Bon Accord Bar is ideal for malt tasting as it has an superabundance of the golden nectar.


    The best one I tasted on the night was Springbank 18yr old,but there was one that came a close second called Sheep Dip,name doesn’t do any thing to make you have a second glance,but as the bossman gave us a freebie measure and it was only our second drink of the session,I really enjoyed the tippleThe boss says it’s quite hard to find,but I will be keeping my eyes peeled for a few bottles.I’ll be on-line scouting the whisky shops soon.


    Springbank was the drink of my choice,but it’s not a drink you would buy in a bar.(too dear).

  4. Xavi was important but pedro was as important


    Three points when not at your best…. That’s what wins leagues…..

  5. Its like Mutiny on the Bounty over at FF. But the wacky mutiny is in no way Christian. The fat man is William Bligh and the scurvy faced buns are sailing the rabid ship HMS Get Him Sacked!

  6. Celtic should loan some of their young bhoys to the div 3 clubs to keep help keep


    newco down????……………………………What’s that? ..lucky to get a draw?

  7. To anyone who thinks tony watt is anything but a mega Celtic fan, I’m a driving instructor and have a pupil from coatbridge who went to school with tony. He’s Celtic daft.

  8. THE EXILED TIM 19:40 on 26 August, 2012






    Aye, took them at half time @ 11/10






    Took them @ 5/2 – to get the weekend stake money back. :-)

  9. Thought Barca carried a lot of luck there. Ref gifted them the first goal, although unintentionally, and then had the cheek to send an Ossasuna player off for complaining. Then, they ,missed a great chance to make it 2-0. But Messi does what Messi does: sticks the ball in the net. Easy peasy for Lionel.



    Some strip, by the way.



    Anybody know why there were green white and orange flags being waved around the ground.

  10. 67Heaven ... I am Neil Lennon..!!.. Ibrox belongs to the creditors on

    The situation is obviously desparate at sevco now, when the bib needs to chalk off a Berwick Rangers goal to save them from total meltdown today …… They are a total embarrassment to sport, and to Scottish Football, as are their abhorant fans …… If the SFA don’t do something soon, they will be held legally accountable, at some point, for these illegal sectarian chants….

  11. Alasdair MacLean on




    Have to admit to having a wee peak and left quite quickly after seeing someone at least had the grace to run a thread entitled, “Berwick were robbed.”


    I had been curious to see if the incident had been acknowledged.

  12. That strange thumping sound you can hear is me BANGING my head on my computer table while unable to refresh page. :)))





  13. irishcol



    Driving instructor! Pah…..Taxi Drivers are the only truly believable sources …..and ME….who will shortly provide the definitive answers to today’s ‘Where am I”……after I’ve had a piece’n’toasted cheese with a sprinkle of fresh herbs and some tuna which I need to eat before it goes off.



    If you want an quick swatch at the picture clues….here they are…






    Hail Hail




  14. 67Heaven ... I am Neil Lennon..!!.. Ibrox belongs to the creditors on

    I think buckinegra and alexander will leave this week, and they won’t be replaced …….. Then the bhuns will finally realise what the (asset-strpping) end game really is …. Then, head for the hills…….LOL!!!!

    Celtic welcome ALL …unlike others when they pull on those hoops we support them faithful through and through….. I am a Celtic supporter …


    First, last, ALWAYS end of

  18. Apologies folks, since the question has probably been asked many times…the site has been all over the show for me over the past week or so. Is the problem with IE? I’ve logged in using Safari with no probs. Thanks in advance.

  19. Parheadcumsalford..



    think maybe because of the Basque region and their struggle for independance..


    just an idea nothing for sure..

  20. praecepta



    Nice one.



    Tis a problem waiting for the ole guillotine, when to bet or not.



    I decided to go early, Osasuna should have made it 2-0, but they didny :>)))



    Some decent games on just now in Brasil and Italy.



    Jeezo, Inter have just scored twice since I have been typing this

  21. shimmies33



    Willy Boly plays for Auxerre. Ciani, who we were linked with earlier in the summer is playing for Bordeaux

  22. Emeralda



    Safari?Sogoody…. not been any problems as far as I know(in a sally mcmoist obviously


    sleekit lie sort of way)

  23. There are times when I think some folk don’t see everything that Hooper does during a game- he has played games were his movement has been great, he’s moved defenders out of position, ran the channels, made space for others and generally bossed his opponents…but he hasn’t scored. Those folk I’m talking about have said Hooper was crap. Yesterday, a former striker, a decent one at that, John Robertson, spoke of Gary’s performance in glowing and complimentary tones. Maybe he knew what to look for.

  24. here’s a couple of testers for you all…



    How many internationals does it take to get a draw at Berwick?



    How many referees do you need in your pocket to avoid defeat at Berwick?



    answers on a postcard….

  25. It is ironic, yet not in any way humorous that Sevco will revert to type and buy their way out of Div 3. Cash spend will mask the poor coaching. Once again managing the odds in their favour. It’ll be considered legal this time.



    Embarrassing is the word Ally – you complete dolt.
