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.

    I am hoping, and praying, that we draw ‘them’ in both cup competitions.



    By comparison the 7-1 and 6-2 games will look like close-run matches!



    Big Vic and Kayal can take care of Black and ‘elbows’!



    Young Tony would run riot against that defence!




    Bangura would run riot against them!

  2. Khama. I think Murphy is best down the wing with a lawn mower during the week


    Bungara can do the line painting


    4 million pounds( if you add salary in closer to 6) down the plug hole for those two


    That’s why we should go for russel before some Croatian failure on loan

    Incomprehensible decision by Mr.Tumelty.


    At best, he was mistaken.


    What sanction will his professional body impose?




    He will be demoted to SPL.

  11. tully57,



    Another great victory.



    Euro cents dropping all over Ireland, as GAA fogeys finally recognise what they have been seeing.



    I was on here last year, banging the drum for Donegal.



    I was shouted down by the “purists”.



    Now we have Pat Spillane, etc., prophesing that this is the way ahead for GAA Football.






    There was a “Where are they now” Q and A with TB in yesterday’s Sunday Times.

  12. Everton have reportedly enquired about the availability of Celtic defender, Charlie Mulgrew. The 26 year old can play at centre half or left back and scored an impressive 9 goals last season from the back. David Moyes has a habit of raiding the Scottish leagues for talent, with the acquisition of Nikica Jelavic and Steven Naismith the most notable recent signings. Mulgrew has featured in every game for Celtic so far this term

    I’m sorry to hear about your mother’s death. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  14. It Ain't Half Hot Bhoy on

    DBBIA – Please accept my deepest sympathies on the loss of your Mum.



    As you say she is now in a better place and smiling down on you.



    Take care.

  15. Phil Mac has an excellent new article up about Bro Walfrid and the legacy he left behind him.



    A great reminder of what we are all about.



    Went to Ballymote a few years ago to see the bust of the great man and walk in the town where he and his family emigrated from. If ever in the Sligo, Mayo, South Donegal area it’s more than worth the trip. I am going to go again some time soon.

  16. Why can’t I see the page buttons? For the last few days all I’ve seen are twitter buttons.

  17. Many happy returns to one of CQN’s finest who sadly doesn’t post often enough these days.



    Have a great day BJMAC!!!!!!
