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.

We Oscar 4 Life’ have organised a bucket collection for Dundee home game at CP on 22nd of September and require a Lorry Load of Volunteer collectors. To volunteer as a bucket collected please email us at weeoscar4life@gmail.com.

    See you’ve still got laryngitis.

  2. Just see the Sevco highlights.



    Seems obvious to me why the whistle blew on 92 mins. The ref clearly felt that Berwick had committed too many players forward and he didn’t like the odds!



    Great stuff yesterday. really looking forward to Wed. There should be a great atmosphere.



    BTW dont know if it’s been discussed on here but I heard J Traynor on RS last night saying that he tried to buy Airdrieonians club crest to donate to Airdrie Utd but was told by the Liquidators that to do so he would need to pay off all the debts.



    So, I presume Sevco must be debt free then?



    What a country!

  3. i take it celtic snapped up tony watt ,before rangers came in with a bid. i heard he had leanings to the dark side

  4. Bless me Father, for I have sinned.


    I have taken pleasure in the suffering of my neighbour.


    I have allowed myself to become more like him.


    I was not taught to behave in such a manner.


    I should know better.


    I have no excuse for what I have done.


    I will gladly accept whatever penance is imposed on me.



    Mea culpa. Mea maxima culpa.

    This remains hard to take and in that I remain convinced that the powers that be will remain determined to see Thems back in the (laughingly) top flight a.s.a.p.



    Regan and Doncaster, where have they come from? Who selected them and who else were interviewed? All hush hush or above board?



    Who can remove Ogilvie other than Ogilvie?



    This stinks to high heavens and Celtic are, apparently, doing nothing about the anti Celtic corruption in Scottish football.

    Timbhoy2.. Let me guess..your a glass half empty kinda guy? …ridiculous post but up to your usual standard ..what’s wrong follow follow quiet?

  7. I am on holiday in Kilmeford outside Oban. Can anyone tell me if there is a Celtic bus going to the game on Wednesday? If so when and where do we meet? There is no phone reception here but if someone can email me I can get in touch. Vince@seltrax.co.uk

  8. Wow!



    Are Barca being sponsored by Tequila Sunrise this season?



    at least The Eagles can supply a ready made Club song!

  9. Prestonpans bhoy



    I watched it …they were hanging on for he draw …BR had a good goal disallowed




  10. Goodness me.



    McCoist – who’s public strategy hounded three (at least) individuals to the point of death threats last year, and saw no reason to show remorse for doing this……….



    ……Is embarrassed because his team draw a football match.



    Judge the man by his actions.

    Timbhoy2 says Tony Watts Minister was Rev John Knox,any truth in this rumour?





    Report frae The Hon Man,wi’ Matchday Stats frae Soapy Soutar….






    Govan Galacticos gained a scarcely deserved point against the plucky part-timers of Shielfield Park..in this latest episode of their ‘fizzing’ Irn Bru League 3 campaign..



    They took an undeserved lead in a scrappy first half…when Golden Slipper prospect..Andrew Aloysius Little…pounced to force the ball over the line…after a stramash in the Rangers’ Penalty Box.



    This young lad is fast becoming a legned amongst the AsbestosDome Faithful..after his extra-time winner in that epic Ramsden’s Super-Cup encounter with the mighty Brechin….



    Galacticos were relieved to reach half-time,still retaining the narrow lead.



    With the advantage of playing ‘Doon The Slope’,in the Second Half,with the wind behind their backs,Berwick Brazil pressed relentlessly,and failed to take advantage of a number of clear-cut opportunities..



    USA Captain,Bocanegra,was booked for a vicious lunge on the Rangers inspirational right-back..



    Substitute Fraser McClaren announced his arrival with a stunning solo effort…breezing past two Galactico midfielders,nut-megging an astonished Bocanegra,before sending Alexander the wrong way with a Puskas step-over,neatly sliding the ball in the corner of the net..




    This had the effect of silencing the Blue Songs of the Loyal Order..



    Ferguson threatened once more,when his fierce dipping shot was tipped over the bar on 72min…much to the consternation of a family of badgers,sun-bathing behind the goal..



    Increasingly desperate defending by the Galacticos saw them hold off waves of attacks by the fast and skillful Rangers forwards..



    FPLG was spoken to by the Third Official..for attempting to hide a ball that had gone out of play up his XXL cardigan(blue)



    In injury-time,Benjies Boys earned a corner.



    As the ball was swung over,Alexander’s mid-riff experienced an instantaneous expansion..to 80 inches,and Townsley was incorrectly adjudged to have impeded the goalie,as the ball nestled in the Galacticos’ net..



    The final whistle came moments later..



    So the plucky part-timers of the Wee Rangers remain win-less,after this intriguing encounter..



    Next up for the mid-table Galacticos..a tantalising encounter with table-topping Elgin City….






    MatchDay Stats:-



    Bridies..8/10 ; Sausage Rolls..5/10 ; Buttermulk Dainties..10/10 ; Peperoni..N/A..



    MOTM..Mike Tumilty..



    [Surely MIB of the Match..Ed]




    As the sun dips behind the gleaming towers of the Shielfield Creamery..



    The Fresian Coos Hiv’ Stoaped Countin’ The Sheep….



    And are again…chewin’ the Cud…..





  18. timbhoy2



    Stoap it wull ye?!



    Young master Watt’s from Coatbrig’ – he has absolutely NO leanings towards the darkside!



    He’s a TIM!



    The huns offered £80k, allegedly, and we offered £100k.



    Not even Ballantyne was going to turn that down for a 17 year old!




  19. prestonpans bhoys on

    So sevco away from home has comprised of a last second goal off a knee on the line, to salvage a point, then a good goal against the mighty Berwick chopped off. They honestly want to change the leagues to get them into SPL2 next year……….mental

  20. Glendalystonsils likes a mr whippy with his lime green jelly on

    We’ve been in the habit of starting some games a bit sluggishly but yesterday we were in command from the off , which was very pleasing.
