Fingers crossed.

only watched 7 minute highlights of the Celtic game from Sunday but honestly from an attacking point of view the bhoys looked "class" - albeit against Hamilton who might finally get relegated this season (fingers crossed).

Temporary Erogenous Zone (jim in vancouver), Tuesday, 4 August 2020 20:07 (five months ago) link

Can't see them holding on to Edouard for the entire season tbh.

Took us all of one game to fuck up COVID bubbles to protect football.

2 Aberdeen players tested positive and 6 others isolating after a trip to the city centre pubs following their match on Saturday. Game with St Johnstone off.

aye, this season is going to be a bit of a fiasco you'd imagine

Footballers. Honestly. Clowns.

The Scottish government is warning that it could call a halt to the football season after a Celtic player breached coronavirus rules.

Boli Bolingoli admitted he played in Sunday's match against Kilmarnock despite having recently returned from Spain without quarantining.

オニモ (onimo), Tuesday, 11 August 2020 09:18 (five months ago) link

Griffiths in the COVID bad boy's club too but we already knew what a dick he was.

Mud... jam... failure (aldo), Tuesday, 11 August 2020 20:28 (five months ago) link

We also had Rangers going ahead with a bounce game against Motherwell with 9 (iirc) players awaiting test results and therefore not cleared to play.

Given what we know of Scottish football's ability to govern itself and given how many Riordan, O'Connor, Griffiths, etc. types there are (I see a pattern and it's not just their barbers 😀) I think the chances of getting through the season without wee Nicola pulling the plug are slim to none.

オニモ (onimo), Tuesday, 11 August 2020 20:40 (five months ago) link

bolingoli is one of those players you expect is a numpty based on how he plays. id drum both him and racist leigh out of cp right now if it were possible

think there might actually be a title-race this year if Celtic's early season form is any indication, although the Morelos situation is obviously a big issue for rangers, he really dug them out of a hole constantly last season

rascal clobber (jim in vancouver), Thursday, 27 August 2020 20:43 (four months ago) link

hard to replace goals, even though he never scores against celtic. if we can hold on to edouard (unlikely) and get a CB, I'd fancy our chances. off season has been so compressed, with players training at home/alone over the summer, would expect them to get progressively better as match fitness comes on

||||||||, Thursday, 27 August 2020 20:46 (four months ago) link

aye, I fear for eddy. and the transfer windae doesn't slam-shut until October!

rascal clobber (jim in vancouver), Thursday, 27 August 2020 20:47 (four months ago) link

Yup. It's a shit excuse but I think without Boli's wee trip to Spain we'd have bern two matches sharper and fitter and good enough to win last night.

defence also looks ready to give everyone at least one goal every game

Fantastic finish from Christie but I'm still struggling to get worked up about fan-free-fitba. Like I appreciate the technique and applaud it like I would any of darragh's efforts in the 'I SCORED A GOAL FFS' thread but I don't get out of the eight month deep crater in my couch.

Playing Barkas the other day so today wouldn't be throwing him straight back in at the deep end is the kind of thing that drives me nuts. It *looks* sensible but it's really just cowardice - fear of putting Hazard into the big game despite him being probably the best choice.

Prediction: 3-1 them and Lennon oot.

new variant (onimo), Saturday, 2 January 2021 12:04 (two weeks ago) link

didn't see the game the other day but from highlights looked like barkas didn't have a save to make. the one time utd got through on goal, barkas' angles looked wacky to me but thankfully the striker fscked it

seems bad?

While all of the other members of the squad and backroom team have tested negative, we have been informed by the authorities that, having been deemed ‘close contacts’, Celtic manager Neil Lennon, assistant John Kennedy and 13 first-team players will be required to self-isolate on a precautionary basis as required by the current regulations.

Defence is a shambles. Taking turns at letting the ball bounce to get each other in trouble. None of them would get a game for Livvie (feat. Efe Ambrose).
