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.

    Almost certainly. I’m not sure if is injured, but you ar3e right – he ain’t happy in League2.



    – > “Je cherche une porte de sortie, surtout en Ligue 1. Je suis jeune. J’ai encore des choses à apprendre et c’est un bon championnat. Ce n’est pas facile de trouver, mais tant qu’il y a de l’espoir”.



    – > I am looking for an way out, preferrably into League1. I am young. I have still got things to learn, and it’s a good league. It isn’t easy to find something, but i will keep hoping. (approx translation).


    the thing is – he has options: Mallorca and Lille were both strongly linked, and Lorient (smaller club in League 1) are also sniffing about.



    I posted a list of players I would like the Club to sign (about a week ago) and missed this guy off, as I honestly thought he had already moved on. the fact that Fiorentina are being linked now, shows he has a certain something. French press have mentioned a couple of other teams too – bordeaux etc. I think the guy would be absolutely ideal.

    Posted that before I saw the news of your Mum’s passing.



    So sorry to hear that.



    May she rest in peace forever.

    Born in Belfast he later came to live in an upstairs tenement flat at 150 Roebank Street.Dennistoun. The flat was used by Celtic football Club to provide accommodation for its players. During his time with Celtic (1948-59) the club twice won the Scottish Cup.





    My sincere sympathy on your loss,and for the heartache you,yours,and your mother have withstood over the nine years.



    You will have many family members and friends at the ready to help you through a difficult time,eased somewhat by the knowledge that she is with her husband again.



    But none of our kind words can really scratch the surface……

  6. so the guy Armstrong is to be stripped of his titles.



    does that mean he really didnt cycle to the moon, or am i getting as mixed up as a Sevco supporter about “history”

    Thanks my bhoy! Just looked back and read your post now.



    I remember you fighting the case this time last year. Vindication is sweet.



    I got the Big Match RTE coverage yesterday and was struck by the previous “anti-Ulster” Pat Spillane comments…great stuff….he’s down a 180 degree turn so fair play to him.



    Didn’t know that about the Sunday Times Q&A – will look it up thanks.



    That’s the hotel booked as well now…so all we need is a few tickets…6 of us coming over so no chance we’ll all be sorted, but we’ll see…..



    Dun na nGall Abu!

  9. LuxCelt



    Thanks. He sounds promising but at only 21, he might be too much of a “prospect” still at this time, although if he’s good enough, he’s old enough.




  10. Last season’s average SPL attendance was 6,261.



    At the weekend, the five games excluding Celtic averaged 7,118.



    The average for 2012/13 is 7,582.

    I apologise for delay m8.


    It’s all about opinions


    Plan-B…I’m not too sure that we need to spend money on a striker


    for that, I would like to see Neil working his magic on big Mo.


    after all, Mo’s been injured for most of the time he’s been here.


    I remember well how low Sammi’s stock was before Neil worked


    his magic. I think the same will happen with Mo.


    I do think we need a CH. The thing is, we’ll probably be linked with


    two different one’s each day now till the window shuts.


    We’ll see soon enough.


    Hail Hail

    A couple of the ‘attempts’ on goal from the ole Bounce at the weekend reminded me of the efforts of a crazy girl who used to occasionally join in childhood games of heedies and kicks on my street.

    Well done to your Son, hope he excels and enjoys what can be a varied and stimulating career.
