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 (eleven 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

Gerrard clearly turned on el búfalo. will anyone actually buy him though?

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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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 (eleven 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 (eleven months ago) link

would expect them to get progressively better as match fitness comes on

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.

Nice things were so hundreds of years ago :(

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.

that zaliukas story is very sad. so young (not just saying that because we're the same age).

Only 330 years behind the rest of us. Slavia and a section of their fans can get tae though.

Watching a few of them still persisting with the idea that Roofe got the ball and therefore it's ok to nearly decapitate the Slavia goalie is fun.

The narrative around Sunday's game is some bullshit though. "Please stay home" = we're no' giving you *more* selfie opportunities and *another* police escort up to a covid-fest, there might be Tims at this one.

ailsa, Friday, 19 March 2021 23:30 (four months ago) link

Front page of the Record on fans potentially going to the stadium:

Slightly different from the approach at Ibrox with the police escort to the George Square wrecking spree.

Suggest Banazir (onimo), Saturday, 20 March 2021 12:18 (four months ago) link

It's ridiculous how much effort the club is putting into the stay at home message.
Like are there really thousands of Celtic fans desperate to storm the streets at the prospect of John Kennedy squeaking a home win in a dead rubber?

You are correct.

My hopes aren’t too high for Sunday. We’ve had close games with them this season but I get the impression last night was our chance for a win but wasn’t to be. Rangers have a lot more options at their disposal to change things for Sunday.

the AP going for Mooy is an interesting rumour, he'd be a great signing I reckon but I'm slightly biased as he's the best Town player I have seen in my lifetime, as low a bar as that is. I think he'd have to take a pay cut because he's on super stupid megabucks at Shanghai and his brother recently died so idk if he'd want to be a couple of extra thousand miles away from home.
