What a club, what a support. Just incredible.


In time we will forget, but for much of Celtic’s 0-9 win at Tannadice earlier this season, Dundee United held their own and forced the champions off their game.  An early Kyogo goal provoked United into action.  It was Kyogo’s second, on the 40th minute, that did the damage.  Before the break it was 0-4.

That game was Jack Ross’ seventh and final game in charge and eclipsed their 0-7 reversal in Alkmaar two weeks earlier.  In the vernacular, United ‘chucked it’.  We could expect a change in attitude when, after the players got their way, they arrived at Celtic Park in November.  The visitors levelled on 87 minutes, only to be denied a point by the team that never, ever, chucks it.

Since the World Cup break, United have lost only once in six outings, a home defeat to Newco.  That run took them off the bottom of the table; they are now tied on 20 points with Kilmarnock and Motherwell, three above Ross County.

Fully rested and in great form, I expect no problems for Celtic on Sunday.  United can look back on their early season woes and comfort themselves with the fact that at least their 7-1 aggregate hammering came to the team currently second in the Dutch league, whereas another Scottish club had the same outcome over two games against the fifth-place Eredivisie side.

Paradise Pit Stop

Every now and then the Celtic FC Foundation, YOUR Foundation, does something that stops me in my tracks.  With the cost-of-living crisis having such an effect, from next week they will open the doors to Celtic Park lounges on Monday and Thursday evenings, when volunteers from the club and Foundation will serve food, provide warm shelter and facilities for kids to play and study.

Celtic cannot solve the problems of poverty, but opening their doors twice a week to provide warm food and shelter to the needy is an incredible act which reflects our founding principles.  If you are involved in this, well done.  If you can only contribute monetarily, your efforts are invaluable.

What a club, what a support.  Just incredible.

    If you post a graphic video of someone getting killed – regardless of the circumstances it will get deleted



    Your complaint was well written and had merit but then you added one word at the end, why would you do that????



    Thats why that got deleted.




    Mod if you had posted your reply last night,it would have been accepted,and would have avoided todays stooshie.thats why the last word is correct.


    As i repeatedly ask.- just say bout the deletions time etc.


    Whereas at mo you come on only to find its gone wi no explanation.thanks for yours however belatedy.



    Anyway back to Celtic for me mod,as you know i have some problems with the anonymatti/changeOmonikers here as it degenerates into abuse directed personally,all veiled in anonymity.


    You’ll know what i am talking of eh!


    i have had better facetofaces bout Celtic and how they go forward in recent years,that used to be here,i understand your anonymity as Mod,having been bout t’net for quite a while i do honestly.stick to it and good luck as i say in my reply to Canamalar you were right wi pingin the 2 mentioned there.

  9. Ball played off St J player from 1 yard away not going goal bound or going to fall to a Hun. Not as if someone saved it with both hands…



    Dirty cheating scumbags these officials.



    D :)

  10. the stats are staggering the patterns are blatant – VAR is cheating the game. The game’s a bogey and CelticFC need to take it out of Scotland.

  11. Prestonpans bhoys on

    If BBC Scotland say this then it’s not a penalty, is Walsh on var?



    It’s another one of these harsh handballs. A cross comes in, hits off Connor Goldson’s back and strikes James Brown in the arm.



    Brown’s arm is out, but he had no time to react.

  12. St J down to ten men – they must be panicking something rotten that we’re going to win the league

  13. column asked to go to monitor to review possible red card – 99% of the time ref goes with VAR decision. Guess what he does?



    Anyone remember an incident where VAR went against rangers , any controversy – me neither – its a vehicle to help them and hurt us! OUR GAME IS CORRUPT!

  14. Jack should have seen red a terrible tackle but after clear evidence of a bad tackle Colum after looking at tv says no.

    Do you think we’ll get an emotional ‘once a celt always a celt’ farewell from Giakoumakis?

  16. Per BBC website


    Posted at 16:4216:42


    No red card for Jack


    Rangers 1-0 St Johnstone



    Willie Collum STICKS with his on-field decision. Ryan Jack stays on the pitch.



    He’s a lucky man. The replay appears to show his studs catching Adam Montgomery right on the ankle.












    Perhaps that’s what we are failing to understand – what is vs what appears to be – where VAR officials know what is vs average Joe’s susceptibility to what appears to be.

  17. Lots of red cards in their favour recently. A new game to play? Clark obviously a Hun so probably deliberate.

  18. Prestonpans bhoys on

    Even hibs can’t do a “hibs” with that score line. Are the sheep 🐑 deliberately trying to get Goodwin the sack?

  19. Weebobbycollins on

    Is there a referee in Scotland where you could say, ” You know what, he’s not a bad ref ? “
