What Stein got wrong in Lisbon

433

Jock Stein didn’t get it all right in Lisbon 50 years ago. He told his players Inter’s weak point was their goalkeeper, Giuliano Sarti, who passed away within the last day, aged 83. How wrong could he be? Sarti played the game of his life, resisting Celtic for an hour, and then keeping his team in the game until the end.

Inter’s famed defensive structure was unable to adapt to Celtic’s ability to create space, but a combination of Sarti and the woodwork kept the scoring down. Twice the keeper benefited from the West German officials, once when he stretched behind to claw the ball out of the net, and once when he grabbed Willie Wallace legs inside the six-yard box.

Sarti

Sarti was Inter keeper throughout the Grande Inter period, when they twice won the European Cup and Serie A title. He earlier won the league with Fiorentina, as well as the Cup Winners’ Cup.

Great, though he was, he was no King Canute, and could do nothing about Big Tam’s tidal wave, which changed the course of football.

    Good post. Personally I would bring Ajer back think that bhoy will go a long way.

    Me too,but maybe another year on loan as a CH,say with Hibs,Aberdeen,will do the boy great.Hopefully,then could come back fully ready to fight for 1st team place.Fantastic prospect.

  2. Regards Paddy.I would think that if the stories that Man City are prepared to let him go,there would be a queue of,WBA,Stoke,Newcastle,etc,lining up with 10 million plus offers.Hard to think anything else.This kind of money is nothing to these clubs.60 grand a week in wages.This is the nagging doubt I have on bringing Paddy home.

     

    Our only hope,I think,is if Paddy has told his agent,”Its Celtic,or nothing”,If that were the case,we would have to act very quickly if Man City were agreeable to letting him go.If its 8 million,pay it.Still a bargain,and at the end of his time with us,a fortune to be made selling him on.

     

    For me,I would be delighted if this and Stuart Armstrong signing a new contract,was our total business this close season.

    RIP Sarti.

     

     

    How Celtic never got a penalty kick when Sarti grabbed Wallace by the legs is beyond belief.

     

     

    The referee never saw it, luckily enough for Sarti as he would have been sent off.

     

     

    Not that it matters now as the game was more or less won at that stage.

     

     

    Brilliant goalkeeper.

  5. Very strange goings on in Qatar.Saudis flexing more muscle.No doubt egged on by Britain just giving them 3 billion in bombs and arms.

     

    Very dangerous world.

    I like Ajer too but I agree with TURKEYBHOY

     

     

    We have 3 good CB’s right now and if we need a 4th I’d happily have Lustig slot in there with Gamboa and Ralston in reserve at RB.

     

     

    If Ajer is going to get another 30 odd games at CB at Killier (or elsewhere) I think that’d be more beneficial than having him in the stands at Celtic Park on matchday. The same goes for young Christie.

    Oh there will be a wailing and gnashing of teeth on RM and FF tonight.

     

     

    What a complete and utter waste of time and money. There should be bottoms skelped at COPFS for even bringing this to court. Although there were some nice wee tidbits that came out in open court that may prove useful.

     

     

    TGSC,

    A bottle of ink was spilled on a floor.

     

     

    A cat walked into the room.

     

     

    The cat jumped onto a table.

     

     

    The cat trod on a Sale and Purchase Agreement at the signature page.

     

     

    Mr Murray congratulated the cat on being the new owner of Rangers.

    nice one

     

     

    and the cat left a deposit which amply covered the value of the shares :)

    Whyte quite rightly cleared.
