The Case for Marcelo Bielsa Podcast

Hector, Ralph and Desi get together to discuss the main talking points of the recent Celtic days

We bid farewell to the most humble and inspiring of strikers, Stevie Chalmers RIP

We salute the class win to seal the title at Pittodrie and salute the Championees

We discuss how important or unimportant Sundays game really is. It apparently does matter ( who knew?)

We ignore the new strip altogether so sorry about that one.

Most of all though, we discuss the Manager position with Lenny in interim position. Hear us discuss various names such as Mourinho, Moyes and as more and more get thrown in the ring  rejoice as Hector leads Desi on a Road to Damascus conversion.

Listen to how Hector skillfully sells the idea of “El Loco” aka “The Professor of Football” Marcelo Bielsa departing Leeds and bringing his football maverick madness to Parkhead. You too will be convinced…or your money back! (see P Lawwell, Glasgow East End)

Lets all get aboard the Bielsa Bus!

OoooH Canny wait to listen to this wan, Laters bhoy’s.

Well I enjoyed that, thoughts from podcast: Stevie Chalmers RIP. BIG family man, like the rest of the Lions, he was humble and unassuming, far from the limelight which he never sought, his family were hugely important to him. We all go on about THAT goal but his striking prowess was there for all to see in the stats. Elegant, strong of character with the deftest of touch, subtle and sublime, Stevie Chalmers will always be a Celtic LEGEND. The next Celtic Manager: To me Lenny looks anguished, red eyed and under pressure, he follows a top class manager who… Read more »

Mike

Quell Surprise, I could go into the details of your post but I canny be arsed. Lets look at Lenny’s record, promoted from first team post to manager, he did extremely well, no question about that. He left, many including myself and including him, thought that he would be a target for other managership roles, none came, the only club that did, were skint and desperate, he left after finding out that he had been made false promises. Eventually he turned up at Hibs. His record was good, making a difference, but much the same as Higginbottom the currant manager.… Read more »

It never bothers me one wee bit when my logic is called into question, our minds should always be open to new thoughts and ideas. If you get three Celtic supporters in one podcast you’le get three different opinions, the faither, son and the holy most prove that point. What gets on my tits is the one mantra on repeat prescriptions, from us all. We all have different thoughts on who the next manager should be, but like you say it matters not, because we cannot influence who it will be. The bit I like is the nutters who think… Read more »

Post disappeared over the horizon, come bye!

I have been reading about the terrible ticket allocations for the two European finals. Outside the fact that one of them is in Baku which last time I did geography was in Asia rather than Europe. This reminded me of the SFA which often tickets terribly in the other way. Gives the opposition to Celtic more allocation than they can actually sell! Equally bad. UEFA is a famously indifferent and some would say corrupt organization hell bent on simply making money. No surprise they are uninterested in Resolution 12 stuff or any other stuff unless their money making is threatened.… Read more »

Mike

Broxi, They are all at it, self serving inglorious bastards, the ticket allocations are a disgrace, for UEFA and the SFA. Proven corruption at FIFA where an American member was on the take, like nearly everyone else, but Karma intervened as it allowed the Americans to clear out the corrupt. UEFA are under pressure from the richer clubs to make them even richer, these greedy bastards will bring the game down to the gutter, forcing more and more club supporters to abandon interest in their competitions and the game. The SFA are take their lead from FIFA and UEFA as… Read more »

The Cha

I’m pretty sure that we only got a paltry allocation for Seville (10,000?) and it had been happening for years (decades?) before that but, if it affects “the greatest league in the world”…

Arsenal only took 2,000 to Valencia, so 6,000 for the final is probably realistic, if not optimistic.

Mike

They estimated that there was over 80,000 Celtic supporters at Seville, I even met my mothers undertaker…

Mike

Stadium holds 70,000 so probably 30-35 thousand, estimated support 80,000 Eufa fair play award to the Cellic support.

TicToc

Broxburn, excellent comment. Hope you were not offended by the “broxi” thing (not from me) and ‘bear’ no grudges to the accidental commenter. Corruption has been endemic in football, since WAY back. Unacceptable now, as then. Try reading “The Men Who Stole the Game” (or similar) by David Yallop (I think?). Aye, corruption’s not new, but still fuckin’ intolerable. WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE? On another topic, I watched I, Delours on Netflix last night and was humbled. A family whom stood their ground, AND THEN SOME, and Ghirls (both of those sisters) whose courage should be inspirational for… Read more »

Charlie, you put all your cards in with Deila…I get it.

Rodgers is a Rat but was an outstanding manager for Celtic.

Broxburnbhoy

We would be well advised to avoid hiring another rat only here to advance their case for a job in mid league team in the EPL. No matter how good they are my preference would be for a manager with appropriate competence plus character and integrity. Someone who walks their talk and is prepared to see out contracts and build Celtic into a European team again. This is a long term job. Yes Rogers brought much needed advanced management techniques to Celtic and we did well. Thank you. There are many managers who I think can do that too and… Read more »

We don’t have a lot of it, considering the CL Qualifiers will start at the beginning of July and what with a break after the Cup Final.

The Cha

“you put all your cards in with Deila”

Burn, baby, burn. 🙂

Uralius

I saw it Charlie. I believe that we need a tactician to do anything in Europe. Brendan was a man manager he could make people want to do things they never imagined they would do. Deila was part genius part nut-job, shame the nut cracked at Celtic and the crazy came out. Lennon is a great reader of the game, he IS a tactician and most of our home grown players would run through a wall for him, it’s how he handles the Sinclair’s and Edouard’s of this world that will be closely scrutinized.

Steve Naive

What is this goal that we are nearly approaching CS ?

Broxburnbhoy

I see the Big European rugby finals will be played at Spurs new ground next year. Not a peep of criticism from their fans! Seems like just another way to make some money for Spurs and spend it on football. Hmmmm

The Cha

I’m not sure why their fans would be complaining.

The new stadium has multiple pitches, so that’s not going to affect the football playing surface (it’s amazing what £1B buys you!).

Good to see you back on “Packa Macca” or is it “Pokémon”. 😉

Post podcast…I’ve got to say again, in my opinion, ten is no substitute for a five year( or longer) plan for consolidation and improvement in Europe. If Spurs win in Madrid, they wont give a damn for the league this or next year. If Liverpool lose on Sunday, they’ll be gutted but not as much as they would have been without Madrid. Same with the E.L finalists. We are bigger than appointing Neil to get to ten. Where is the plan ?
Better players, better manager, better in Europe.

Failure of management but no surprise.

The Cha

and if Eddy requires a rest next week before the Cup Final then we’ve unnecessarily reduced our options and we may have to risk him.

Ironic that you mention Griffiths considering he’s been appallingly unprofessional and thoroughly disruptive and received nothing but total support from the club, who he’s let down time after time.

The Cha

I’ll only have a tough year (I assume you mean season) next year/season, if Celtic continue to downsize, regress and stop winning trebles.

Which is in contrast to you who hated:

– the Invincible Treble
– 69 game unbeaten run
– the Double Treble
– the prospect of the Treble Treble up until recently
– regular punishment beatings administered to der Hun
– emergence of superb quality strikers Dembele and Eddy

The Cha

My oh my, the imperialist stormtrooper talks about hate.

Being a fair man I accept your unconditional surrender and we need say no more about it.

CS, I replied positively (to you at least) but it’s gone.
Maybe it’ll arrive later but it’s becoming too time-wasting. Do I detect a sea-change at eTims?

2-1 to the Bhoys.
Burke and Forrest have pace and will pull them out of shape and can get back quickly.
I think many in our lineup have scored against the Huns in the past: Lustig/Brown/McGregor/Rogic/Forrest/Edouard
I’d like Big Eddy to really shine tomorrow.
Peace and good health to all on this site and to Tims everywhere.

Congratulations and to Joe The Goal.

Looking forward to the Double Good Guys against baddies:

Reds v Glasgow Huns

CHA it was Joe’s only piece of magic all game 🙂

CHA.. Ryan Curran and Conor Mc Menamin are two real gems we got this season. New manager Paddy Mc Laughlin has worked wonders with the team. Same 11 finished… No subs used 🙂

The Cha

Wow, great energy playing 120 mins twice in a week!

They play for the shirt 🙂

TicToc

Delighted to hear that Weered. Good result.
Unlike The Bhoys today which was dire 1st half and ‘direr’ 2nd. Poor starting line-up, poor subs.
Anyway, like deidco, it’s irrelevant, but I really feel for our supporters who went into that shit-hole.
HH

Weered

Tic Toc I watched the first 60 mins yesterday. I went home and weeded the garden… Both items were a shambles…

I am hoping Ralston and Johnston make appearances or start to give them experience in a hostile enviroment. I think KT should be rested and Hayes to start at LB. Devoy – I like the idea of Burke being involved as he is a big lad and fast. His first touch is generally poor and he has no left foot. It will be a helter skelter match and cool heads will be needed. Good luck to all our players who get onto the pitch and good luck too all fans that are watching in Ibrokes -stay safe!

Had a wee glance at kerrydale street, someone posted Weah, would make a difference, it’s amazing how much better players become sitting on the bench, and then when they get on the pitch they’re ordinary!! Out walking the dog, it’s a “dead rubber” for me, the only game we should be bothering about is the cup final!!

London Celtic

Pour Piss, Lennon not the man going forward.
Anyone thinks he is are off their head.

London Celtic

Hope the board are seriously planning for next year. Big decisions need to be made.
Don’t hold any hope of Lawwell getting it right again. Looks like DD will have to intervene.

highseastim

I lumped on Sevco at 9/5, never let your heart rule your head when it comes to gambling!! Their cup final today, ours not for a couple of weeks!! Just like Hearts on Friday.

Broxburnbhoy

Piss poor performance today. That said league already won cup final to play. Truly dead rubber and yet annoying to get well beaten by a poor side.

Una

Brutal

henkesdreadlocks

Lennon needs to be thanked at the end of the season and waved bye bye with our blessings. Time for a huge over overhaul of this team. Eddy was the only one out there worth the jersey. As for c**** who wage money on a win for the scum, sad inbred pieces of shit.

The Premier League goes to a play off, as much chance of that happening as the zombies stopping 10 in a row

Cartvale88

Charlie Saiz an apologist for the new Delilah, the wors ever team performance, no bottle, no shape, no idea.

Yes a dad rubber, my arse, also Una we have struggled against the mighty zombies this year, ten in a row could be a fantasy.

The board finally must take their finger out and bring in quality, too many palaces cannot hack it and J P Kennedy as Lennyvare out of their depth.
The mighty Aberdeen and Killie gave it a better run than the pathetic Celtic.

Away out t watch the zombies celebrate their winning of the Milky Way Cup

Sevco beat us soundly, in yet another game where we can’t score. Forrest and Tierney would have made a difference but were right to be rested. Questions need asked of Lenny too. Can he motivate players? Can he out-think a novice manager? We did nothing right yesterday and although the league is won, I’m beginning to think if the season went another few games, Sevco would have been up for it. I would treat this as a wake up call. Lenny? I have my doubts. Moyes? Definitely not. I am still very angry at the way Rodgers left the club… Read more »

Broxburnbhoy

If sevco beat us once a season and we win everything I can live with that. Both Rogers and Lennon have had a terrible performance at Ibrox. Eventually sevco has to win a game against us every now and then. The League is won and a history making treble treble coming up soon. I’m sure the players have bigger things to think about than a dead rubber Glasgow Derby. It has been a weird season while we have come out on top again it has had too many twists and turns and major upheaval. Hopefully we can pick a new… Read more »

The Cha

I agree.

At the dog days of Deila the likes of Brown, Forrest, Lustig and probably others were “done” and the likes of McGregor weren’t been given a chance.

A new manager comes in and everyone starts again and those that perform stick around.

We still need a few players but not sure a major rebuild is in order.

Another thing. We would really have to go down hill for Sevco to close the gap. Football is never static and while one team thinks it is closing the gap, the gap can get even bigger!? Sevco Stuff: Spending money you don’t have is both unwise and illegal. Slippy G may not have any money to ‘improve’ his squad. His loan signings may have to go back to parent clubs. Defoe and Davis are past their prime so maybe not good enough for 50 games plus per year. Sevco escaped on the injury front, on the whole. Without our depth… Read more »
