Wide-open McDiarmid suits the champions


St Johnstone are on a run of three wins, two draws and a single defeat in six games, a sequence that has seen them move away from the foot of the table.  Defeat at Livingston last midweek being the only black mark since they were being used as target practice by those in the bottom half of the table.

They started their league campaign at Celtic Park with a 7-0 defeat.  Maybe I’m just over-cautious from a few years ago, when the same result against St Mirren proceeded a cup exit to the same opposition a week later, but this kind of result can be misleading.  Those on the receiving end can use the hurt as motivation, while the team who dished out the win learn nothing useful about their opponents.

I expect Neil Lennon will have the squad ready for the battle of four consecutive away games; motivation will not be a concern.  McDiarmid Park is also a wide-open surface.  It is a yard longer and a yard wider than Celtic Park; I expect the champions to prosper.

  1. Bada Bing – the story about Morelos, so far, is that he returned home last night and found a man under his car who he then chased.


    He called the police and, as yet, no criminality established. From this, the rumour is going around someone was tampering with his brakes.



    Then again, it might have been a kid retrieving his ball. Used to happen to me all the time when I played in the street :) Or do kids not do that anymore?

  2. Neil Lennon said yesterday that nobody will leave. These Ntcham stories are likely to be complete rubbish.

    Re Ntcham-Seen Snodgrass linked with us the other day?






  4. Favourite Uncle



    I’d imagine on wages Snodgrass would be way more expensive.



    Hope not anyway, he’s as slow as a week in barlinnie. Like getting Kris Commons and his huge fat arse back in the team.



    So a NO from me…

  5. Bada Bing



    What’s the angle here???



    Forcing a reduced sale out of Poundland? Alfie was hounded out for being realy, really too good???

  6. BADA BING – remember the time the huns bus was torched and the media automatically assumed it was a deranged Celtic fan? Level 5 Scam indeed.


    DENIABHOY on 29TH JANUARY 2020 4:26 PM




    AND their goalie getting his hied kicked in by his burd.

  8. Big Wavy – the narrative would be exactly that, that we hounded him out, simple. Our racist, bigoted, deranged fans drove him away from his beloved rangers, That would be the excuse for letting him leave on a cut price deal (or more likely an undisclosed fee).


    The truth more likely to be that he wants to go, they need the money and Level 5 left to spin the narrative to the gullibles. And they have been doing that ad nauseum since December.

  9. Just seen Farage attempt a grandstanding finale at the European Parliament……the female speaker with a beautiful Irish accent, told him and his mob to leave,’ and take your flags with you….’👍

  10. Perhaps it was a squirrel who wanted to move the “story” on for huns desperate to forget their very recent defeat to Hertz?

    I haven’t seen this bit can picture it.



    Is it not sickening that this object is representing US in front of our European neighbours?

  13. Alisdair- I watched it live about 15 minutes ago,it was fantastic…..Farage and his gang ,waving the Butchers Apron flags,giving it 3 cheers etc,the lady intervened,and chased them.

    Drum banging Lambeg style.



    Ireland needs UK more than UK needs Ireland and if the beautiful Irish accent is unaware of that then she`s simply a stupid woman .

  15. Rumours of Olivier Ntcham being in advanced negotiations with West Ham United have been shot down by Celtic.



    It was reported in France that the 23-year-old midfielder was in talks to join the Premier League strugglers before Friday’s transfer deadline.






    However Record Sport understands that there is no truth in the rumours, which senior Celtic sources dismissed as “agent talk”.



    West Ham this afternoon confirmed the signing of Czech international Tomas Soucek from Slavia Prague, with the 24-year-old occupying a similar role to Ntcham.



    It’s also understood that the Hoops are not pursuing Jeff Hendrick of Burnley or Hull City winger Kamil Grosicki.

    woops . ..as soon as game was over and was excused the Dubai camp (I think). Unless one of his own has given him a sore one . . .



    *or mibbees when he allegedly kicked wee Ryan in the hips and haws or allegedly again when big JFK hooked him and he slipped.





    IS there anything you are not an expert on.why did you leave if it is so good here.



    Askin for me .

  18. AKBW1888



    According to WIKI the boy Grosicki played 9 times for Poland in 20


    73 caps in total so imagine is a bit of a player











    None of your business.





    SO that means IRELAND and scotland ..and brexit are none of yours.



    C,MON THE ABOS get your country back.

  20. The last piece o’ guff featured Fat Charlie an’ his jam-jar…………….



    Is there a pattern emergin’?



    Or, can they just not afford to buy anythin’ other than kolumn inches?

  21. Time will tell if pulling out of the EU was a disaster or not a disaster that remains to


    be seen we all know it was mainly England who wanted this to happen cause as


    they say too much freedom of movement one only has to look @ London for


    example out of a population of nearly ten million 99% of their population are


    from all over the place mainly Europe now I know freedom of movement is


    not such a bad thing especially here in Coldland where we need more of the


    younger generation to come here & take up a living however try explaining


    this to the English who don’t view it that way

  22. Jinky………



    Perhaps sumbdy will doorstep thum in time for the news the night????
