Celtic Diary Sunday December 8: The Magic of the Cup

The short, sharp format of the League Cup provides the best chance of silverware for any club during the season, and its great to see plucky , cash strapped “rangers ” given a chance to win their first ever major domestic honour.

They seem to be happy about it, having offered Steven “Pep ” Gerrard a new contract that will tie him down to the club/company until 2022, or until someone offers the hastily added get out clause fee, thought to be a ridiculously high £7m, which, in short, means he’ll be around at Ibrox for a while yet.

As usual, the hype around the fixture perpetuates the myth that its the old Rangers who are in action today, and not the basket of assets bought by Charles Green, the venture capitalist who made a few quid out of a support that even now is still in denial.

It would be easy to get caught up in all of this nonsense, but the fact is it’s not an Old Firm game as such, although it’s almost certain the two clubs nodded wisely to each other over a five way agreement some years ago, and perhaps in the boardrooms there is a feeling that the two clubs need each other, and Scottish football needs them even more.

 

If Celtic play the team in front of them today, and not the hype surrounding them, we can expect a comfortable afternoon, unless, of course, you happen to be on the same train as some of their support after they’ve been beaten.

Only Hatem El Ahmed and Jozo Simunovic are unavailable, and that leaves Neil Lennon with an embarrassment of riches to choose from. Despite this rumour from last night..

Image

 

Expect a line up of Forster, Frimpong, Julien, Ajer, Bolingoli, Brown , MacGregor, Forrest, Christie, Elyanoussi and Edoaurd.

Whatever line up “rangers ” put out, you can rest assured that none of them would get into a Celtic side, although Morelos would make decent back up for Edoaurd and a fit again Griffiths.

But that is irrelevant in a one off cup game.

There is one person who could put in a match winning performance for the new club, and you all know who that is..

However, there is something that just might swing the fifty fifty decisions our way, as collum is the type of guy who looks like he can hold a grudge.

Willie Collum hasn’t refereed a single Rangers fixture in the four months following the club’s scathing attack on him.

The official’s decision to send off Daniel Candeias during the Ibrox side’s win over St Mirren in November 3 was slaughtered in a lengthy statement days later.

Rangers’ attack on Collum garnered no fewer than five SFA charges and eventually resulted in a fine after a two-day Hampden hearing.

But in the ensuing 124 days since he flashed red at Candeias, a call that was later upheld on appeal, the senior whistler has not once been put in charge of a game involving Rangers. 

Collum is an arrogant sort of fellow, and he might be out for revenge on the new club for questioning his decision back last November, but what is worrying is that the SFA have chosen this game to give him a chance to make it up to the SFA’s chosen club.

Peter Lawwell was never going to point this out to the powers that be, having decided to sit quietly at the back of the bus until it’s time for him to get off to pastures new, but ,manager Neil Lennon is fully aware of it.

Image

On referees , and their honest mistakes, Lennon said;

“It is important to try to take that out of it,” 

“Try to be the dominant team in all aspects of the game, then you don’t have to look at wrong decisions.

“You’ve got to take the referee out of it. You’ve got to keep your discipline and play as strongly as you can.

There is scope for plenty of incidents, especially slips and falls that may be determined to be a penalty as the Hampden pitch has poor drainage and its been raining heavily in Glasgow for what feels like a fortnight.

However, with tv money at stake, there was never really any chance of the game being called off, so the announcement this morning it was on should come as no real surprise..

 

Image

no ispection required, that means they were taking no chances as to whether or not it was safe to play on.

And lets face it, the SPFL couldn’t give a toss if the fans get a bit wet.

 

Image result for raincoat gif

 

The last game between the two sides started with Oddsone Edoaurd kicking the ball into touch as close to the “rangers ” bye line as he could, immediately putting pressure on their back line, which is not the best back line in the country.

Whereas that particular move may not be replicated, we can still perhaps expect Celtic to start at pace and keep it going all the way through until the end.

With the Ibrox side slipping behind in the league, and a trip to Celtic Park at the end of the month ahead of them, they will be a little nervous as their entire season could fall apart in the next couple of weeks.

A convincing win and an outstanding performance today will destroy their morale, and leave them wishing they hadn’t believed all the hype about how good they are.

Speaking of hype, or rather the lack of it, there’s been little mention of the fact that Lazio, beaten home and away by Celtic, beat Juventus last night, 3-1, to move into third in Serie A.

In their last eleven games they have lost two, both to Celtic, and Celtic remain the only side to beat them on their home turf this season.

We knew Lazio were a good side, and we know exactly how much of an achievement it was to win those games.

Put that into the context of todays match, against a team of journeymen players at a club still to win a major honour, and you kind of start to think complacency could be the real problem.

 

But the players are fired up for this one.

An unheard of tenth successive trophy is up for grabs, a run which will come to an end, but not today.

 

Although there will be a determination in the Ibrox camp to give their support something to cheer about, as they were devastated the last -and only time -they played in a cup final…

Image

 

Prediction for today ?

If Celtic want to, they’ll win quite convincingly..three or four goals is not beyond them.

If Willie collum wants to have his priviliges re-instated down at the lodge, or the SFA feel that they owe “rangers ” one after John Beaton was below the standards expected at Pittodrie last week, then we could see extra time and penalties.

In fact, I wouldn’t be surprised if Gerrard sets out to aim for penalties, like all wee clubs do when there’s little chance of them outplaying their opponents.

 

But for me, I’d say that 7-1 record was in danger today, and there’ll be an awful lot of u happy bears out there tonight.

Gerrard is due to sign his new contract tomorrow. He’d do well to sign it before todays game, as if things go badly the hordes will be wanting his head on a spike.

 

Anyhoo, back to the caption competition… from Friday/Saturdays diary..

Magdalena’s Chestnut Gelding

Ordinarily I get nervous before any cup final as they are one off games and all it takes is a howling mistake or awful refereeing or linesman decision at the wrong time and we are screwed.

Despite our dominance and the obvious fact that we have the best squad in the country I will always remain cautious.

The whole of establishment Scotland want us to lose today. The football authorities want us to lose today. The media want us to lose today. At their most innocent they think it will fuel interest in the Scottish game if there is an end to our dominance and “competition” from a fierce rival. What they really want though is a supremacist right to gloat over defeated Tims.

They care not a jot about the genuine competition there actually was when Sevco were on their “journey”. There was a healthy spread of cup winners over the years. Since they came into the SPFL and the media had the competition they wanted we have been more dominant than ever before.

Today is once again about us turning up and doing our jobs, it’s about Lenny reminding the players who and what they represent because the board don’t care that we have all been cheated in the past and are watching another financially doped shower of rule bending and breaking cheats make their way to cup finals they otherwise would not have made it to. If they play better than us and win it will be with a team they “otherwise couldn’t afford” due to maximum spending outwith their means.

So, my beloved Celtic, once again you are in a final representing a people and a cause. Represent us well. Fight for the right to celebrate.

I will probably have white hair come 4.45pm today.

Come on Celtic!

We’ll need a drastic improvement to win this. Thank fuck for Big Fraser Forster. They’re bossing the game, we’ve not been winning those 50/50 balls in midfield and plenty of passes are going astray. No real penetration in the final third and to have 0 shots on target after 45 mins is embarassing. Big Eddy and wee Mikey will have to come on and maybe spark our team into life.

Very happy just to hang on – our brave defending in the last half hour was something else. What a difference a half-fit Odsonne Edouard made to the shape of the team.

How we played before our goal went in will be food for thought but I doubt if the same mistakes will be made again when we face sevco at the end of the month.

Criticism should be left for another day though as now’s the time to celebrate the first of our two 10IARs.

They shall not pass, big Fraser, by crikey did he not pay back his loan fee inside 97 minutes, he played a blinder. We should take him hostage at season’s end. Three strikers and the top man came on late and made a difference, sell the two others, one injured the other missing inaction again. And the Lord said “Lenny catch yersell on and do not play a short winger as a striker and punt high balls up to him, relentlessly, for what is the point, eh”? Tommy teams were brilliant and yet suffered defeat more often than not at the hands of the FUD. Mind you they are too thick or desperate to see El. Buff is mince, 20tries nil points.

Some clown slagged me off earlier in the season for saying Sevco had a better coach and squad than previously but as Lenny reminds us we have improved as well, they will only achieve something if we go backwards and there is no sign of that anytime soon. If we can beat them and win a trophy after a display like that, another treble is well within our grasp.Morellos is such a liability with his diving and his fouls. I hope he stays with them, but he just cannot succeed against Celtic. Happy Sunday C’mon the hoops.

Agree. Collum was just trying to suck up to Slippy Steve. What a game! Firstly, it should not have been played on that surface. Dangerous to both teams. We were offside but auld Tims like me can remember so many situations where VAR would have given us the match. Remember the Cadete incident? Recently, the Meekings handball, etc, etc. We’ll take the offside goal (by one shoe length) as karma. Morelos should have been sent off (for simulation and for trying to cripple Jullien—aga. VAR win) Jack should have been sent off. VAR works both ways. Lenny, no more Morgan up front if no Eddy. Instead, 4-3-3
Forster
Elhamed/Ajer/Jullien/Boli
Frimpong/Brown/McGregor
Forrest/Rogic/Christie
Rogic’s height will give us something to aim at.It gives me great joy to see us play so poorly and still win. Our defence saved us this time. Well done Lenny and the bhoys, in the wind and rain of Hampden. What a lovely day it’s going to be!!!
