What did Juve learn from Celtic on Tuesday?

1080

On watching Celtic on Tuesday I wondered, ‘What will Juventus learn from this performance?’  Their scout will have left with a few notes.

Celtic can break quickly and effectively.  Both Hooper goals came as a result of moving the ball the length of the field, mostly on the deck, at pace.

Their threat from corner kicks was re-emphasised.  Charlie Mulgrew delivers the ball with sufficient pace to benefit from unpredictable movement, beyond the anticipated swerve.  This will be difficult for defenders, keeper and attackers to meet, but Celtic players clearly put a lot of work into practicing getting onto the end of these crosses.

Hopefully the scout will have learned nothing about how we will defend against Juventus as we were somewhat erratic early on against United and were not pressed thereafter.

Juventus are rightly favourites but this this is a thankless tie for them, especially when the first message delivered is ‘Don’t concede corners or free kicks in wide positions’.

They will also be alert to the dangers of being caught forward when Celtic can break effectively.  Celtic conceded through this mistake against Spartak last month but I wouldn’t expect us to leave as much empty space in defence at any point against Juventus.

My main worry about Celtic is over how much practice they are putting into penalty kicks….

    Thanks. I know you sometimes hear of clubs fining a player a week’s wages, or you used to, but I thought that recent fines from the great leaders of our national game were for a specific amount, £3000 or whatever.

     

     

    In any case, I don’t think there is any mention of this in the UEFA Club Licensing and Financial Fair Play Regulations, which is the document I was referring to.

    The huns lawyer admitted that five recipients of EBT’s are illegal, maybe they could start with them, and then, aye go after RC.

     

    +++++

     

     

    Did Rangers, or rather MIH, appeal every charge levied against them?

  4. Re Penalty Kicks, I reckon if you aim at the Keepers Face and hit it as hard as you can you will score 9 out of 10 times and that average would do for me.

    Ha!

     

     

    Nup, if you’re the goalie these days, you just stand in the middle of the goal and catch the ball that the cleverclogs kicker has chipped into your arms :¬)

     

     

    There are very few really good saves made from penalty kicks, largely because very good penalty kicks are so difficult to save.

     

     

    If it was all about psychology, Derrin Brown would be worth a fortune.

  8. If you look on the Celtic website it usually states you can purchase in the shops including EK.This is for home games(tried fast one and get my old man to get extra Juve tkts last week NAE luck)

     

     

    So i dont know if they do away tkts or you can get any without season tkts number etc.

     

     

    HOWEVER Game must be a sell out as Ballon Buddie other night on SSB said buddies had sold out full allocation of 8000 tkts thats all SFL would give them…

     

     

    As my youngest would say AYE right.

    “I was anticipating the United supporters doing something but I didn’t think they would stoop to this.”

     

     

    From the piece of sh1t who penned the most poisonous obituary ever printed in a Scottish newspaper.

     

     

    Who wipes McMillan’s chin after he’s been eating – Ruprecht Graham or Divine Dingwall?

     

     

     

     

    Stein,

     

     

    They didn’t finish his quote, here is the correct version-

     

     

    “I was anticipating the United supporters doing something but I didn’t think they would stoop to this, why don’t they just sing jolly songs about killing Catholics like all our decent football fans?”

     

     

    Hail! Hail!

    I wonder what BDO has been ” pouring” (sic) over the documentation for the past month.

     

     

    A fine wine perhaps?

    Makes sense, is that the reason we missed so many when Goram was in de-goals for the hun ?

    If Mary Feldman done plastic surgery :)

  13. Goram had a slight advantage Burgas as there were two Andy Gorams, therefore the kicker wouldn’t know which face to aim at.

    R.I.P. Dolours Price. You were a great Republican and suffered a huge amount for The Cause. I know you had not been well in recent years and small wonder considering all you suffered. You will not be forgotten.

    Sad news indeed. Another fine women.

     

     

    What illness did she have ? Report i read didnt mention illness.

     

     

    I know she was very critical of the sinn fein leadership but was she active in recent yrs with any party in dublin ?

     

     

    Hope marion is giving compassionate parol for funeral then released for good.

    I didn’t think it looked right – a bit like the guy who said it…

  17. proudbhoy, Her mental state was not good at all, she suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, she is believed to have overdosed on medication a few times and it is rumoured that this was what happened last night.

    Both teams in the same boat then. I would rather have to play ICT than Lazio!

    A four-match ban for Kenny Shiels – not a lot for accusing a match official of fabricating evidence.

     

     

    Something’s not right there. Stinks the place out.

    I won’t be buying tickets to the SFA venue, I will not support the corruption.

    I was thinking … One from the top row.. Two from the middle.. And one from the bottom row ;)

  22. McCall as “assistant coach” for Scotland? What exactly does that mean.

     

     

    We have a manager and an assistant manager. Given both have Celtic connections does this mean that McCall is really just the token hun?

  23. Wilfried Zaha is going to Man United for £15m and we are expected to accept £15m for BOTH Hooper and Wanyama.

     

     

    EPL clubs can jog-on…

  24. Stein

     

     

    Im sure kenny shiels will have something to say on the ban … He aint one to be shushed ;)

    SSN – BREAKING

     

     

    Reading’s Jimmy Kebe is on his way to Newcastle for a medical. We’ve had this story verified.

     

     

    Turns out to be a hoax.

     

     

    HA Ha Ha Ha

     

     

     

    They should just stick to Sevco PR – it’s all they are good for.

    Very sad.

     

     

    Theres lots from that generation who suffer mentally from what they beem through.

     

     

    Hard to watch people who were basically unbreakable get broken by an illness.

     

     

    Hopefully she gets the send off she deserves .

     

     

    Id assume it will be those who gave alan ryan his send off will be asked to do same. Interesting to see how the gards handle this.
