Weakened Lazio faced Rennes


It looks like Lazio did not prioritise the Europa League this week.  Only four of their starters against Rennes have started more than half their six Seri A games this season, three have yet to start a league game and one, Quissanga has started only once.

Lazio are a point behind rivals Roma in the league and two points off a Champions League spot.

They visit Glasgow in three weeks then face Fiorentina in Florence, who currently have two points less than them, three days later.  The game at Celtic Park might be too heavy a load for Lazio to risk the full first team.

The return leg comes between a visit to Milan, currently 16th (!), and a home game against Lecce, who are one place below Milan.

    You may have … but not received.


    Now, I just texted ACGR, who immediately texted back…


    So there’s a wee rabbit away somewhere…

    I never expect us to beat anybody in Europe never mind Lazio … but for some reason I think Neil is actually trying to make us expect not to lose .. Lazio has all the makings of a champions league tie and so it should be … am more excited about all of our European ties home & away this season …. (trying to forget 3-4 game)



    Livvy tomorrow and we can (not) worry about Lazio later …



    I still think from 9th July till now, that a lot of fans/supporters will concentrate on going out of the CL instead of embracing the EL where we can compete at a very high level, and our Euro results that have got us here … and this young team could grow & grow

    A wee laugh for you..


    I worked in Montrose in the late 80s (Sea Oil Base)


    So familiar with the area.


    A few years later, my niece was going to Vietnam, on her “Gap Year” – paid for of course by my sister.



    On hearing, “I want to know the world.”


    (Paraphrasing here.)



    Being an old cynic, I says, “FFS you don’t even know your own country…..I mean, where is Forfar??”



    She hadn’t a clue.



    About 5 years later, she says to me:



    “I never forgot what you said to me, but what was really funny, I met a couple from Forfar in India, and I was able to say I knew exactly where Forfar was!”



    Poor wee girl. She was from the Hebrides … how was she supposed to know where Forfar was?



    And the moral is ..



    Search me!



    Just wanted to tell you.

  5. Al Mac: the text I sent is showing that it was read. He may have sent the wrong number. Get him to send you my number.

  6. Alasdair MacLean on



    She is now back in the Hebrides, two wee boys with her man, a fisherman from the southern Hebrides.



    Can’t be too detailed..



    But she teaches yoga!

  7. Celticrollercoaster......Hail, Hail Cesar on

    God Bless you CQN posters and lurkers



    Stay safe, fight well and hope your team wins later today. :-)







  8. Alasdair….. thank you for sharing that …Miss Braw has been in charge since January and I am so proud of her …it is comforting to know that Forfarian traits march doon the dreils of this life…and” weigh in” has no fear….



    smiley i will be in that chip shop full of dafties ,you and abidy else are hereby invited thing




  9. A guid poster from here sent me the twitter video of the “1690” wedding where the bride & groom are “dancing” to simply the best while mentioning the Pope & the IRA …. bigotry is never taught in any school… it’s taught in the home and seemingly at some weddings



    Fellow Celts good night n god bless



    3pts tomorrow will be good but no prizes given out before the clocks change



    Hail Hail

  10. Delaneys Dunky on



    Mon the Angus warrior. Sorry to read about your difficult life situation. Praying for you my friend. Braw fighter you are sir.



  11. Delaneys Dunky on

    Was great to meet 3 CQN auld school stalwarts today. Zbyszek, OldTim 67 and The Boy Jinky. Magic 👍

  12. I dont Post on here very much anymore, but I did Post earlier in the week about the “Daily Record” printing so called “Hilarious” stories about Gasqcoine from former team mates and “Coaches” etc….



    I have wondered WHY all of sudden the DR has chosen to print this Guff..but it turns out that ” Gazza the Good guy…Gazza the wonderful” is back in Town…NO Doubt to try and get more Ibrox Chumps to give him more Cash to fund his “Life Style”…as he did with Lineker and a few others.



    His “Life style” has been littered with Drunken and Coke filled behaviour, he is a CONVICTED Woman Beater, he has recently faced a charge in Court of Sexual Assault, not forgetting Him leaving a Foul Deposit in the Bath at Celtic Park, for a Cleaner to clean up etc etc…


    This last week in the DR we have had a number of former players and a certain Hun Chump called Archie Knox, retelling all these wonderful stories about “Gazza”….and what a Fun Guy he is ???


    The latest is Slippy Stevie himself…



    I would love to ask these Hun Chumps……” How would you feel IF it was your Daughter that was assaulted by him, how would you feel if it was your wife, Gf, Daughter etc who was the victim of a Sexual Assault by him, how would you feel if it was YOUR mother who had to clean up his mess out of a Bath Etc ,


    would he STILL be such a wonderful Fun Guy in your Eyes ” ????



    I would also like to ask these Hun Chumps…” what IF it was YOUR Son, Nephew etc that was PISSED on by that fun Guy Gazza at training, What if is was YOU who was pissed on by Gazza at training…would it be funny then , would You be pals with Gazza if You or any of your family were the Victims of this despicable Chumps behaviour ” ?



    Why do I also get the feeling that as the Team Mate that he Pissed on was a “Johnny Foregnier”..(.Erik Bo Anderson)……..then it was okay to piss on him ?


    If this disgusting act was done…and Bo Anderson just happened to be the “Victim” by chance…..and NOT because he was a “Johnny foriegner”…then why Bo Anderson ?


    I would also suggest that Gascogine would NOT have dared have pissed on the likes of Laudrup, Albertz etc because they were loved by the hun support etc…….so I believe that He picked on an “Easy Target”, who was NOT loved as much as some others…in other words…You can also add “Bully” next to Gaqcoines name !



    I wouldnt Piss on gazza..if he was on fire !



  13. Good morning CQN from an excited Garngad



    Canny wait to see the hoops at 12 today.



    Oh and the weather is very poor, wet and windy in the Garngad



    Hail Hail



    D. :)

  14. I see that wedding video of all those lovely people (scum) singing about the pope has been dubbed to be singing “I wanna be Eduard”. 😂😂😂



    Now it’s watchable.






    D. :)

  15. Please Lenny strongest team today, and get the 3 points.



    Do not rest anyone.



    If they want rest they can pull out of Internationals.






    D. :)

  16. Nye Bevans' rebel soldier on

    Would I be right in thinking all this rain will make Livingstons shit pitch


    a wee bit more playable or am I talking nonsense.

  17. Neustadt Braw hope your treatment goes well and you get sorted. Sounds like you have great support. Take care mate. Tauranga.

  18. Hunderbirds are Gone on

    Good morning CQN from the Central Highlands. Yesterday’s stunning Sunrise light show is a pale memory, as today dawned dank and damp and miserable. Low cloud has curtains of rain falling from it. Ah well, Karma shows her moody side.




    I thought the same about the weather, and hoped it might improve the Tony Macaroni surface, but like you, I huvny got a clue.


    Anyway, a win is a must today. Momentum is of paramount importance in a league competition, and a win for the mighty Hoops means Sevco will be trailing in our wake regardless of their result. As it’s an International window, the Orc Army will have a fortnight for gnawing doubt to eat away at them. Luvly Jubly.


    Go to it Hoops.



  19. prestonpans bhoys on




    Actually it’s the opposite, these plastic pitches are supposed to be watered before each half for ‘normal’ movement of the ball. The trick against teams who pass the ball is not to water them at all, a slightly deflated ball helps as well. Man who knows a groundsman😱



    Hope the view from 112 is well👍

  20. Nye Bevans' rebel soldier on




    Cheers for the replies,can’t remember us playing well on any of these pitch’s


    although we manage to win most of the time.

  21. Plastic pitches?



    Summit worth gettin’ really angry about.



    Fix Fitba, Empty Hampden……………….






  22. Good morning, friends, from a pretty washed out and grey EK.



    **CQN Player Of The Year**


    In advance of today’s game and in response to a few quesries I’ve had recently can I just confirm a few things.


    1. It’s just a wee bit of fun and nothing ‘official’ in the hope that it stimulates a bit of debate and maybe even gets a few more folk back posting on here.


    2. It’s open to all – there’s no ‘signing up’ process and even if you’ve not voted so far you’re welcome to start today.


    3. Equaly if you only vote now and again, that’s fine. I don’t keep a register of who’s voting week on week. All I try to watch out for is that folk only vote once for each match.


    4. ANYONE can vote – poster, lurker, friends, family, etc – so long as the voting is put in an email (as I don’t see everything that’s posted on here or on the CQN Facebook page).


    5. You can vote for up to 3 different Celtic players after each match. So you can’t for example say that your 3 votes all go to Jonny Hayes.


    6. The simplest way to ensure I know who you’re voting for is to state the players real names. Whilst I do like quiz questions, sometimes trying to work out or remember who the Prestwick Pele, Skoosh, etc can be too much of a challenge. Similarly, make sure your spellchecker hasn’t kicked in (you should see what often happens with the names of some of our newest signings!).


    So, enjoy watching the game today and please do consider, after the match, sticking 3 names in an email and sending it to cqnpoty@gmail.com




    Does that kind of weather keep the midgie population in hiding ?



    If so…………every cloud…………..

  24. Hunderbirds are Gone on



    Midges not really a problem here. More than there used to be, but mainly a West Coast blight.


    The actual factory, where they manufacture all of the Midges in Scotland, is in Plockton. 😂
