Celtic Diary Monday February 19: Halo Slips ?

You’ll have noticed todays offering is a wee bit later than usual.

Thats because i wanted to take a bit of time and have a think about what I was going to say after Celtic stormed to a 0-0 draw with St Johnstone -the second consecutive home game without a goal scored.

Something that hasn’t happened for a while.

Sure, the Perth side clawed, and kicked, tugged and generally ignored the rules, to that result.

But was it actually good management by Tommy Wright ?

Earlier this season “rangers ” complained that referee John Beaton had allowed an overly physical approach to their multi million pound players , which kind of counters any anti Celtic bias, and could it be possible that Wright had spotted this ?

The statistics will show he booked a few Saints players, but he only did this late on, which meant they would not have really cared. In the post match report, the bookings will be noted. What won’t be noted is that it took an astonishing nineteen fouls for the first Saint to be booked.

Bias or just piss poor refereeing ?

Probably the latter, remember he did the same against the “rangers “.

However, the players must take responsibility for not giving it back. Whilst we could argue that Beaton would have booked ours with a lot more enthusiasm, there’s actually nothing to suggest he would.

We’ve never tried it.

Opposition players have had an open day on our players all season, and the injury list is a testament to that.

It is now essential our players hit back. Not only by dishing out the rough stuff, but by getting in the referees face when it happens.

Let them know we aren’t going to take it anymore. It’s actually that simple.

 

As for criticism that Rodgers made too many changes, thats a difficult one to call.

My initial reaction was that there were too many changes, and the players called in would have no incentive to do well. they knew no matter what they did, they would not feature over in St Petersburg, and as a result , they just wanted to get the game over with and remain injury free.

If Rodgers had decided to protect his stars, then they would not have been on the bench, let alone to feature in the latter stages of a game where the opposition had been allowed a free hand to foul our players.

I cannot believe he’d have been that naive.

The upshot is that he now knows with the season approaching the business end, that he cannot rely on one or two who may have seen their status grow in the eyes of the support.

And with a few difficult games ahead, then its better to know that now than then.

It may be that Aberdeens defeat on Saturday allowed him the leeway to do that, and as it turned out, Celtic did move one point further ahead.

Nine points clear, and eleven games to go.

I’ll take that.

Especially as the quadruple, and not the treble seems to be a bit more than a dream in the managers eyes, and whilst the Diary cannot claim to be the managers biggest fan, it has always claimed to be fair, and the result in the first Zenit game, and the way the manager got that means to me that he deserves a bit of leeway as we approach a difficult game in a difficult place.

He might not be the Messiah, but he deserves a chance to show he might be.

Sure we dropped a couple of points at the weekend, but I’ve a feeling we won’t remember that come May.

There’s a lot to do but take a deep breath, and think ..

Literally clicked on Diary the second before I got new article email!

Celtic scored 29 times from outside the box last season. Many were game changing goals. This season it is only 10, and a key weapon in Celtic’s attacking arsenal appears blunted.

Canny believe that a manager who has back to back trebles in his sights, 9 points ahead in the league, league cup already in the bag and a big toe in the last 16 Europa League getting flack.
Martin O’Neil used to get pelters for playing the same if they could stand up.
Brendan is bleeding players in at every GOOD opportunity. It was worlds end when Izzy got injured and we had to rely on the wee scrawny kid Tierney at left back. Wonder how that pans oot?

Agree totally, don’t understand the complaining of some of the celtic fans or you ralph, fickle lot, it seems Brendan will be criticised no matter what decision he makes. At celtic park all our squad should be motivated enough to win and be seizing the chance.

Reply to  Bawsman

Bawsman,

I agree with you but also disagree! Since I am using a lot of “ees”, here is another. It is all a matter of degree.

It should be pointed out when the manager gets it wrong, and he does from time to time. Overall, he is the best thing that has happened to our club for a long, long time. However, when he gets a formation wrong, or he plays the same style too often, then what is wrong with pointing it out?

BR’s effect on the club will go way beyond playing performance. He is changing the club at different levels.He will leave a legacy if/when he moves on. However, not all of his decisions are correct…. whose are?

A rule for the blog should be PCP…Praise, Criticise, Praise.

Lots of good points but we should always be beating St Johnstone. Lots on here telling me 10 in a row is the target and Europa is all a bonus now telling me it’s all about next Thursday…..truth is with our resources it’s all about both!! Winning the league gives us acccess to Europe which in turn gives us access to cash which we should be investing to ensure the cycle continues. ( eg a couple of half decent defenders….) refs will ensure we have an uphill battle to win the league but Brendan needs to be careful and not trip us all up.

Macca,
I think a number of our squad need to go and train with the Scottish International Rugby squad….learn how to look after themselves on the pitch.
Scott Brown is vital to Celtic, irreplaceable in fact, when Brown is out the side i think a few hide to be honest.

” The shirt doesn’t shrink to fit inferior players ” the sign say’s…..maybe not, but when Brown is out the side, a few players go missing.

This injury list is a fucking disgrace & it needs looked into.

Agree with needing to be a bit more in the refs face but rather than responding to constant fouling we should go out with the intention of hitting opposition players ‘robustly’. Once the ref is forced to book one of our players he will find it more difficult to ignore constant opposition cheating.

A lot of nonsense talked about St Johnstone result by the usual suspects, but not by you Ralph ( see how I try to ingratiate myself after the imbibing jabs) ? I said St Johnstone were part of the awkward squad and were due a result, they proved they could do something after their result at Ibroke in Dec. Aberdeen are due one’as well maybe Sunday or the Cup Final, we don’t travel well after Europe. I don’t think Musonda should have been put in for the full game, he is a fantastic talent but not ready yet to carry the burden of a full competitive league game in a weakened team, same with Calvin Miller. We need to see where we stand as a European team, a last 32 or a last 16 in the Europa League then we can get back to pursuing 10 in a row which in my opinion is our no 1 priority. However full team in Sundsy subs for those who cannot make the full 90 mins.

We should not be risking the Title for the sake of any Euro game unless its a Semi or Final.
This year the objective was to be in Europe after Christmas,this has been achieved,but equally domestically we wanted to win all local competitions,this is on track.
if we go through Thursday what do we achieve,perhaps 1 more game home and 1 away.

This is not BR’s team for Europe thats next year,so why risk the revenue of £31m which will allow us to continue and build.
Dont also lose sight that if we fail and sevco succeed then we have given them the lifeline they are crying out for.

Losing at Killie,then St.Johnstone draw is 5 points lost and represents,in my view a Short sighted view of Europe and lacking in Economic sense.

The feelgood factor was a major ingredient to the Invincibles status and we seem not to recognise this ,and even worse fail to maintain it when we had it returned on Thursday.

Bad Decision.

Soon as the so called officials get a sniff of weakness then they will take advantage.
Killie,Partick,and St. Johnstone,kicked us off the park.

look at the lineup. Madden,McLean,Beaton,Muir,Dallas,Thompson, then you have the compromised few. Clancy,Collum,Walsh,Robertson.

To keep ahead of that lot you need to take them out the sphere of influence I.E. score early x2 thats them nullified,leave it late they are in there.

2) Re “…..so why does it look shit?” Yet another silly question!
Well it’s winter right now it’s a 2 year project and it started last summer. Can you work with that amount of information, all at once, Monti? Thought not. It’ll be finished (if on time) for the CL qualifiers.

For the information of Barking Broxburn and Monti the Muppet, taken from the Celtic website as you two are clearly not very well informed, but like to pretend that you are:

“During the close season of 2016/17 and 2017/18, we will be installing a new hybrid pitch solution. Due to the short close season these works will be completed over two years.”

Man city oot, Spurs held, lower league teams,if you don’t play your full team that’s what happens.
It was necessary for Brendan to play his squad.
Big Tom getting an hour,Gamboa Miller Hendry,all getting valuable game time. 2 points dropped is never good,but the benefit outweighs the risk. All players getting a chance for match fitness. Celtic are just too soft,and need to get strong tackles in when players and refs are taking the piss.
Make him take the book out,retaliate with strong tackles of your own,let them know who the champions are.
It was very disappointing.

2)Hunskelpings home and away
4)4 domestic trophies in a row
5)68 unbeaten domestic games.
6)Back-to-back qualifying for CL Groups
7)Europa after Christmas

All achieved in his first 18 months,and there is more to come.

What if we do the unthinkable and Celtic actually eliminate Zenit, and whisper it, progress in the Europa league. What if in the coming weeks injured players come back refreshed and raring to go, adding a new vigour to the team and we crush all domestic opposition. What if we do the never done before and win back to back trebles. Its all quite possible, we witness a historic back to back treble, you know what, that if I was a betting man, that’s where I will be putting my money on.
What if Baldy came back and apologised for shouting out about the “respect” for others that was so missing yesterday in his posts, well don’t bet on it because with his ego being so far up his arse, it could never be retrieved. Respect Garry, the one thing missing completely from you, try to retrieve it and god forbid you ever included it, well it might just add to your argument. J.J. (Jinky).

We are still waiting for the findings regarding the dodgy license given to now defunct oldco rangers to play in Europe some years ago. I look forward to that set of findings. Slowly but surely the wheels are turning. That said anyone from the media asked new Scotland supremo “Big Eck” about his EBT?

BBhoy, just being sarcastic and yer spot on about FF, some deadly weapons on there. Some of the suggestions on ways to raise money for the sinking ship are a fucking hoot. There should be prescriptions for Deludamol dispensed for all of them.

Una,
i’d prefer if we got there by winning the Scottish league. Being second to the tramps is unacceptable. I put up with that for too long, that’s why I’ve savoured our titles over the past few years.

Celtic have to kick on, we need to start a settled side to take us through the remainder of the season. Too many changes does disrupt the team but our team must have been knacked after thursdays match.They needed the rest.
But after Thursday we need to be playing as near to the full squad as possible. 9 points is a cushion but it could get nervy if the league showings continue.
But its all about thursday lets hope the bhoys give us something to remember.

There are 38 games in the SPFL this season and all teams have played 27….. 11 games to go, Celtic lead the table by 9 points and a goal difference of 14. Celtic would need to lose 8 games and score nout, to lose lose this years league title……NO WAY JOSE.

Rob it’s the first time ever we have needed to glance over our shoulder to them. Aberdeen will be a big test after Zenit.
We do need the win.then it’s home to Dundee then them.
They have Hearts St Johnstone then us.
It could be closer than a lot think.

FFS, Jimmybee, Keep the Faith! You’re the last one I would expect to start getting worried; worried about fucking Sevco? Come on Mhan.
After Thursday in St Petersburg, win, lose or draw, for starters we won’t have players maybe trying too hard NOT to get injured. We have a squad who CAN and WILL cope, and with a manager who’ll do likewise.
WE ARE THE CELTIC.
WE WILL OVERCOME, CHEATS, MASONS, ORANGERS ET AL!
Now get back to yer optimistic best and join with your grandweans, as I do mine in a wee chorus:
GREEN, CELTIC, YYEEEEEEEAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHH!! 🙂

Ah, Jimmy, that’s refreshing. I was truly worried about you! (I’ll put wee Sam back in his cage, for now.) 🙂
There’s no-one, no Tim on here for whom I have more respect; you ignore ‘little playground gangs’, neither rejecting nor joining, but just saying your piece as you see it. An ’emerald green rose’ amongst thorns is close! (Not as fucking Close as those brothers are likely to be if the new huns can’t pay their dues.)
The future’s bright; It’s Green and White.
Hail! Hail!

Just finished ma Xmas books, Brendan’s and Broony, both very enjoyable,Broonys done just too soon though,as it never covered the invincible season. He was desperate for a treble,so he has it now,but it would have been nice to see it in his words.
What comes through is his love of Celtic,even though he wasn’t a supporter as a kid. Once you get the bug that’s it there’s no going back.

So you invite me to commit suicide and think we will play by the rules after that?
Consistently trolling is all you do, maybe if you stop that shit things will improve…oh wait you were the guy who said ” let’s move on Monti “, then instantly started trolling again….this emnity exists from your constant trolling, if you keep having a go i’ll keep coming at you.

The message is clear, stop trolling me and things will be far better on here.

As for keeping your family ” out of it “?
I couldn’t give two fucks about you or your family, stop the trolling & fuck off!

” So it’s all outwith my control ” – Bondibrian.

What is in YOUR control though however, is refraining from trolling, do that and all is well.

What is under YOUR control is to accept a previous apology and move on as you put it.

So you see, tbere ARE things YOU are in control of.

Jimmybee, You need to remember your heritage, you the greatest purveyor of Celticness, shame on you, dunces cap on and stand in the corner, shocked to my very core that you, you of all people would espouse negativity to the Tic. I’m shocked, shaken, stirred, like a martini ready to go with its cherry uneaten, are the buildings still standing, has the axis of the earth moved…tut tut tut, heed bowed shakes from side to side in deep murgatroid, sadness and sorrow. tut tut tut.
