Winning against nearest rivals, Charlie Gallagher, Pablo

702

I don’t recall having seen us win the league against our direct competitors. Has it happened in the last 49 years? Yesterday’s results at Tynecastle and Pittodrie ensures that a point against Aberdeen on Sunday will be enough to confirm Celtic as 5-in-a-row champions. As it stands, a 17 goal win for Aberdeen would put us under pressure for the last two games of the season…..

This will be the fourth time in Scottish football history 5-in-a-row has been achieved and Celtic’s third. The last time we were here, Hay, Gemmell, Murdoch, McNeill, Johnstone, Wallace, Auld and Lennox did a lot of the heavy work, with youngsters like Macari, McGrain and Dalglish on the periphery of the team. It was a team which would soon embark on considerable change, which is at least one thing they have in comment with contemporary Celtic.

Another member of that Celtic team, Charlie Gallagher, left the club exactly 46 years ago today, after an extraordinary decade. Charlie will be on the blog tomorrow evening from around 7pm, to reminisce on that incredible era, answer questions and give an opinion or two. These are always great sessions, tune in and enjoy.

Five years ago today we lost Pablophanque, the first guy who said, “We need to bring Kano home”. Pablo was one of the few who made Celtic Quick News what it became in the early days. He made many friends here, who miss him still, and a profound impact on our community.

    As I watched Paddy being taken out of the game by three in a row I couldn`t believe that the ball was not being switched quickly to the centre or to the other wing where the space was.

     

    In addition , all of their attacking in the first half came from that wing where they were overmanned.

     

    Anyway , a bright new dawn beckons.

    Macjay,

     

    Agree.

     

    Opponents know Roberts is the danger.

     

    A young lad who needs assistance when three players are on him.

     

    So McGregor in particular is close to him,and moves to assist.

     

    Brown And Bitton?

     

    Where the feck are they?

     

     

    A good manager would turn this around in no time.

     

    I said it before Get Henderson back and twin him with Kevin Nolan.

     

    Sign Grigg and Winnall.

     

    Wae the Griff?

     

    All over?

     

    You better believe it..

  3. Tricoloured Ribbon on

    LiONROARS,

     

    Thanks for posting that,

     

    Justice for the Juventus fans?

  4. Today I did something I had not done for 15 years. I tried to do it last week but I failed

     

     

    Today I won

     

     

    For the first time in 15 years I won

     

     

    I have been training twice a week to achieve this but I eventually did after 10 weeks training. I used to play this game and today I won.

     

     

    It was a narrow win but it was a win.

     

     

    No matter what level of sport you play, a win is a win.

     

     

    Today, for the first time in 15 years I won and now I can retire from this vanity quest.

     

     

    Thanks to all who helped me achieve it. I have been celebrating all night. I can now retire again.

     

     

    These are the good times. Celebrate

  5. Despite what Ronny is saying, he didn’t have the support of the players. Against the Hun, and they are utter mince, the Celtic team, or some members of it, wanted Ronny gone. It was obvious in the way they played AND wanted off that pitch when the opportunity presented itself.

     

     

    I agree that Ronny should not have been the Manager, his philosophy mean’t more years to develop the Team than the Celtic Support could allow, but I think he is an excellent coach.

     

     

    Ideally, I’d like Roy as Manager and Martin as a Director of operations. The pathetic effort against that newco was truly embarressing. This would mean Peter Lawwell would not be getting involved in things he never should be. FFS he actually went into the Dressing Room. WTF – Alarm Bells.

  6. Delighted for Kieran and Leigh.

     

     

    Superb efforts all season by these 2 lads. A special mention to Kieran as he is keeping a guy that Loves Celtic so much out of the Team. I have no doubts that Emilio will be helping Kieran as much as possible – that is the kind of Humble guy Emilio is.

     

     

    Kaz looks to me to be a player that could be very useful for Celtic. He has composure on the ball and he is a big Laddie. I’m never gonnae be convinced by Tattoos but I think he could be a fine acquisition for Celtic.

  7. For all struggling with things going on in their Life on CQN.

     

     

    Never forget you got the Love,

     

     

    The Glasgow Celtic is THEE Glasgow Celtic.

     

     

    Renowned.

  8. The Queen is warning people about Dark Forces, She is a powerless Woman that has no say on Anything.

     

     

    Celtic is inherently Good.

     

     

    Focus Minds on the Real Enemy.

     

     

    I blame those that promote Biting that Apple.

  9. Sneezy wans 6:12

     

     

    It is so outrageous when one sneezes and puts their Germs OUT there.

     

     

    FFS strengthen the Immune System by natural means.

  10. Mental to believe in a PLC that just wants Profits!!!!!!

     

     

    No offence the PLC will weaken your Immune system.

     

     

    The corporations are Colluding to get us to Pay for things we shouldn’t.

     

     

    Christ is the King.

  11. We wrestle not against Flesh or Blood.

     

     

    The Hour is late.

     

     

    Enjoy EVERY Celtic Success, because it is earned and then some.

    Broonie was unfit. ( Today`s Scotsman )

     

     

    Dear God. It`s not as if we`re short of midfielders.

  13. SydneyTim says sack Lawell now on

    Paul67. Are you seriously discussing Aberdeen as some sort of big rivals

     

    Insulting intelligence me thinks. They won’t even qualify for Europa league

     

     

    What about the big picture then paul. You seem to be found the same as you did after Marbor game when u said you would comment on how club is run then forgot. Shame on you

    I was quite a few words into a post here about how when I joined the CQN community, it WAS a community, and you were at the very heart of it. Our posts about Roxy music, my son Chris, and all things Celtic were a big part of me logging on here to chew the fat.

     

    Anyway, I stopped typing midway as I found myself rewording, deleting, adding, and generally in a bit of a haze as I typed.

     

    I just wanted to say I will be thinking of you and yours.

     

    You’ll never walk alone.

     

    God Bless.

    BMCWP……..there’s not enough appreciation on

     

    here for those who put their head’s above the

     

    parapet,hopefully it will blow over quickly, the hun

    one to rage against.

    have a great day,I know I will err!!:(

  20. Tricoloured Ribbon on

    The captain’s armband now to young Kieran.

     

    Not in in a year or twos time.

     

    Now.This young fella personifies everything about the Hoops.

     

    18 years of age and not a care in the world.

     

    Taking on allcomers and not one worry..

     

    I just love him..

  21. Tricoloured Ribbon on

    EDB will never,ever walk alone..

     

    A good Vale man I think.

     

     

    They breed them well down there…

     

    St Pat’s legends..

  22. Tricoloured Ribbon on

    A multitude of rumours about the new manager.

     

    All it needs is someone with a wee bit of savvy and able to assess who can

     

    play..

     

    Young lads in the development team bursting to pull the Hoops on.

     

    Get them in.

     

    Get Gary Caldwell in.Rapidly learning the trade and his team rattling the goals in.

     

    As I said last night ,sign Nolan,Grigg and Winnall.

     

    Not a big outlay.

     

    Get Janko into the team and you will see a new,vibrant,all out attacking Celtic..

     

    Simple?

     

    Well I think it’s just common sense.

     

    Oh and Kev J to unfurl the league flag next season,.

     

    You’ll never walk alone pal.

     

    Oh and a wee word for The Donald.

     

    Pretty sure he forecast a 3-1 win for the Tims at Tynecastle…

     

    TAL.
