Celtic Diary Monday September 27: An Unfortunate Series Of Events

Another head shaking performance yesterday, this time at home, saw Celtic gain a point or lose two…depending on whether or not you’re in panic mode yet… against an invigorated Dundee United.

 

 

The result leaves Celtic in sixth place after seven games, with just three wins on the board.

 

It’s not very good, is it ?

 

 

Rangers 7 2 1 0 5 1 3 0 1 7 4 7 16
2 Hibernian 7 3 1 0 8 2 1 2 0 5 4 7 15
3 Heart of Midlothian 7 2 2 0 6 2 2 1 0 6 3 7 15
4 Motherwell 7 3 0 1 7 4 1 2 0 4 3 4 14
5 Dundee United 7 2 0 1 2 2 1 2 1 2 3 -1 11
6 Celtic 7 3 1 0 16 1 0 0 3 1 4 12 10
7 Aberdeen 7 1 1 1 3 2 1 1 2 5 7 -1 8
8 St. Mirren 7 1 2 1 4 4 0 2 1 4 10 -6 7
9 St. Johnstone 7 0 1 2 2 4 1 2 1 1 1 -2 6
10 Livingston 7 1 0 2 3 4 0 1 3 0 8 -9 4
11 Ross County 7 0 2 1 4 6 0 1 3 2 9 -9 3
12 Dundee 7 0 3 1 4 5 0 0 3 0 8 -9 3

 

 

 

In fact, another couple of bad results and we’ll be at the wrong end of a gap at the top of the table.

 

Whilst manager Ange Postecoglou finds it weird that some are already saying the league is lost…and it is….if things don;t pick up soon they will be.

 

 

“It’s a weird league,” 

“You call things early here, don’t you? It’s quite remarkable that seven games in people are calling the title already. It’s just not how I work.

“I’m not pulling up stumps after seven games just because other people seem to think there is some sort of insurmountable challenge out there for us. 

 

 

Nobody is calling anything, at least not anyone with any sense, but the warning signs are there.

 

 

There’s a couple of things, howeverm that could be called mitigating circumstances.

 

Looking at yesterdays line up, there was not a single first team regular either starting the game or sitting on the bench from last season. That kind of upheaval is completely unprecedented in our history, and probably in anyone elses as well.

 

 

That means there is no consistency, and certainly no experience of what is expected from a Celtic player.

 

The two most senior players, James Forrest and Calum MacGregor, are both absent. After those two, we simply don;t have any senior players with Celtic experience, and that may well be one reason that things are taking a little longer to settle than we’d like.

 

 

Factor in that the new player who has had the biggest effect on the side, Kyogo Fuhruhashi,is also missing, and clinging onto sixth while players recover might actually be an achievement.

 

 

Opposition players will see this as a “good time ” to be playing Celtic, and in what is already one of the highlights of their season, there is added motivation to compete, and that can make a mediocre player a good player, and a decent one very good.

 

 

Let them enjoy their day in the spotlight, because you and I know deep down that we’ll have forgotten about yesterday long before they stop telling their grandchildren about their 1-1 draw at Celtic Park.

 

 

 

Although maybe we, as a support, should have a wee look at ourselves as well. We’re not helping matters when we start to suggest that we should be beating dross like Livingston and Dundee United.  Of course, under normal circumstances , we would be, but we’re a bit makeshift at the moment, and before you say the squad should be stronger, and we should have two international players for every position, that’s not really feasible, either financially or simply from the point of view of persuading a top class player to earn less money on our bench than on one in England.

 

 

Wake up, we are where we are.

 

 

One or two have blamed the board for our demise, interestingly accusing them of pandering to a club/company south of the river and tailoring our cloth to allow them to remain competitive, and yet at the same time howling in derision because we are six points adrift of the very same club/comapny we largely claim are not our rivals and we can live without them.

 

 

And yet we use their relative recent success as our benchmark. Ignoring the fact that Hibernian, Hearts and even Motherwell have made more than decent starts, and St Johnstone, who won both cups last year, have had an even worse start than ourselves.

 

 

hopefully, that will continue into the league cup semi final, where the hoops should be back to something approaching full strength by then, and maybe a trophy in that tournament will quell some of the dissent..

 

 

 

Of course, the media and it’s soup hungry commentatiors have been quick to jump on the badwagon, with illuminaries such as Kris Commons being hauled out to tell us…

 

 

“The league table is already making for painful viewing for Celtic supporters. The team are languishing in sixth place, already six points behind leaders Rangers.

 

 

Thanks for that Kris, we hadn’t really noticed.  You’ll notice though, he too, mentions that club/company, and that in turn will fire up Celtic fans, which in turn must bewilder our board when we complain they have kept alive a rivalry that we ourselves seem to relish.

 

Indeed, there is a very real argument that they were doing there what they thought we wanted them to do.  And there’s a mountain of evidence to support that theory.

 

 

All Commons, and other commentators are doing is pointing out the obvious, and the more they point it out, the more uneasy Celtic fans become.

 

 

Older readers will recall another new and invigorating manager, John Barnes, when he came to Celtic.

 

 

Backed by none other than one of Europes finest and most successful players and managers in Kenny Dalglish, himself an ex Celt, had his own way of playing the game, and after a blistering start he saw his talismanic striker, Henrik Larsson, suffer a leg break that ultimately ended his career not only at Celtic, but in management.

 

 

Postecoglou has shown signs that he can get this team playing football that has them swooning in the stands, and let’s face it, when it’s good, it’s very., very good.

 

 

But the loss of his captain, his top scorer and one of the clubs most decorated players in it;s history has shaken the ship a wee bit.

 

 

Are we to panic and throw him out the way we did with Barnes ?

 

 

We’ll never know how that season, and indeed a chunk of our history would have turned out had Larsson not been injured in Lyon.

 

 

But we do know that if we succumb to the pressure to ditch Postecoglou..and it’s starting… after what is best described as an unfortunate series of events, then not only will we be right back where we started, we’ll probably have to wait a while before we reach the giddy heights of sixth again.

 

 

It was never going to happen overnight, and there have already been a few setbacks, but one day we might yet look back and laugh about this.

I think there’s a divide in opinion. The manner of how we are dropping points is becoming a worry. I don’t know if it’s inflexibility or incapability to change the game plan. The same questions were asked over here in Australia. But it’s like anything formations and tactics are important but quality is the most important. Our quality guys are injured. I’ve a sneaky feeling the Greek is going to as key as Kyogo. And jota looks good, looks like he wants to win. He was involved in everything good yesterday. Thought rogic was poor with his decision making. He doesn’t shoot when opportunities arise like he did about 3 seasons back

No it’s not very good but as you say there has been huge change, a lot of money spent and a new manager. I like him, I like what he says and what he is trying to do, when it works it works very well but it hasn’t really worked against a decent team yet. I think young Moffat should have been given a half-hour given how poor Ajetti was.
Did Dom go because he wanted to ditch most of the Board and challenge why the new club’s European licence keeps being renewed by the SFA in spite if their financial circumstances, only sayin!

Mostly good diary. Have to say a lot of fans too easily turn on the players and manager which doesn’t help. Does anyone really think Ange will change his style of play or that a new manager will see us beating every other team. it’s delusional. The more he changes, the more he will become NL. And who would be the new manager? The more you deflect criticism away from the board for lack of succession planning the happier they are. Make no mistake Dom challenged them, he went head to head and lost. When he left he wouldn’t let them use “for family reasons” or “for health reasons” which they would have preferred as it would have brought them sympathy. They had to use “for personal reasons” and he was sending us a code – it’s the board and DD stupid!

Bang on the money and at home to.

Out of 16 competitive games its not great, is it?

The only other notable performance was at home to AZ but had they brought their shooting boots then it might not have been.

Its the same claptrap that we got last year, swap lennon and a few player names and its “he knows what he’s doing, he’ll come good” etc etc.

Complete complacency with an added dose of incredible weakness looking to bemoan our fate and blame refs, SFA, media etc.

We’ll never win anything simply making excuses and never acknowledging our our significant failings.

The latter are the only ones that we can address but are the only ones we don’t wish to address.

Keep the faith! As bad as we were yesterday, giving the ball away whilst under no pressure, with a centre forward and a centre-half (No, not Ajeti of Starfelt) we would have won easily. Three times hitting the bar. We could have played Bitton up front and scored more. They had one serious chance and scored. We are Celtic supporters!

Downsizing is the issue and it has gone on for years. Look at the books and Bankiers statement they are only interested in the bottom line. As for Ange why has he not brought in his own back room Staff, why has he allowed players to be signed without his authority. We hear this it is a plan, but it is similar to Hitler in his bunker saying we will win.
Yesterday DU bullied Celtic, Fuchs and the goalie could have walked, but KeltyClancy only had eyes on one team. Abada and Jota gave width, Ajeti was pathetic, surely he could have tried Moffat?
Think Ange could walk long before the board wake up to their shambles, DD and his merry men are cheating the fans and making Celtic an average team in Scotland

Think that was a penalty as much as any other penalty given and maybe a card as well. Totally lucky. The miss from ajeti to me looks like someone who doesn’t really want the ball and is scared. That was a terrible miss. It would’ve won the game. Rangers are just winning games putting chances like that away with the odd offside goal and obligatory penalty.

I can completely understand the mitigating factors that Ange has had to put up with and a large proportion of the blame for these factors lies in the boardroom. All summer fans have said about strengthening a squad that was 25 points behind the league winners last year. The winners have not strengthened, but they have not been able to sell players either. Are the board challenging FFP rules ?

The board have not delivered for Ange on recruitment. If anyone thinks this squad is stronger than the one that finished last season, then the evidence points to the contrary. In addition to this, Ange still doesn`t have his own staff. Why not ?

Does anyone really believe the board will deliver great recruitment in January ? I cant remember when they have done this before and I predict, next summer we will yet again be talking about a squad ill equipped for Europe, if we should qualify.

With Ange, the most frustrating thing for me is that he is unwilling to change shape if things aren’t working out. Yesterday we could have gone to 3-5-2 later on in the game but he didn’t, he kept it the same. I know that we often create chances and his main style is probably right for us, but league winners and successful teams give very little away at the back and we look susceptible to giving goals away in every game. That has to change. That sits with the Manager and his Coaching Team.

Ange won’t be sacked, if anything he will leave because the bull being aimed at him is inconceivable and unwarranted. We have angry fans shouting blue murder because it’s not instant success. I like to think I’m in the majority of people who can handle a little bit of pain short term for the longer term plan which we have seen signs off and is encouraging. There is some quality youth coming through, some great signings and of course a couple of old faithfuls. Shocking injury list just now which ain’t helping no one. But go on yersel big Ange I still believe in ya! I’d keep ya just to rile up the shitty sensationalist journalism in this country but also because iv bought into ur philosophy

Replace lennon with Ange and the same clap was being trotted a year ago.

Remind me, how did that one work out?

The only bull I see being spouted is the complacency that this is acceptable.

We must have up to 10 times the resources so we should have enough to beat Livi and DU (at home) despite injuries etc.

Yes, we’ll struggle in Europe without our best but this is a million miles away from that.

If we can only perform when we have our best players are available then we’re going to win nothing.

Kyogo will potentially be away with Japan 3/4 times more this season and has played a lot of football already this season, so will miss quite a lot of games even if he avoids injury.

You will note the comments on SKy Sports by Gallagher, Not a Pen, as Pawlett fouled prior too, Kelty ignored that could not give a pen for the same foul. If Kelty had refereed the game properly, yes it could have been a penalty. Overall Celtic were poor but seriously prattling on about a penalty when two DU players should have walked, sad!

Prattling. It was a fvcking penalty, because a fouls missed doesn’t make it not a penalty. He was shoved over deliberately. Stonewall penalty. And a foul before. They don’t cancel each other out

I just read what Gallagher said. He was the ref that gave three yellows to a player at the World Cup ? He said the ref was being consistent ?? If he was consistent ?? By allowing foul after foul to be committed ? He should’ve taken it back for the original foul. I don’t believe that was his way of thinking he was just fucking incompetent. One Dundee iunited player should’ve walked. The goalie kick looked accidental

Tried to reply. I just read Gallagher’s reasoning. I don’t think thats what was in the refs head at all. Letting play go on when it’s not to an advantage for the foul but a disadvantage as the player was in the box ready to shoot , he’s then bundled over clumsily and the ref suddenly thinks , wait a minute I’ll just ignore my first glaring mistake by ignoring a bigger glaring mistake right after. Gallagher gave a Croatian player 3 yellows at a World Cup game v Australia.

Well we seem to have the same ultra critical of everything tendency as usual. We are six points behind SEVCO with six games played. Still in all cup competitions (albeit one that we dropped in to )and with only one way to go and that is improve. Yes performances have been poor and patchy and with an almost whole new squad and a new manager very much expected. I’m interested to know what manger that we could attract other than Ange would want to come? Moyes said he’s happy in England, Eddie Howe happy there too. I’d give it till Christmas before we all go too far off the ledge. So far it’s been unimpressive lets see if it gets better. One more thing we must not give up on this season for the reason others have pointed out – CL qualification directly and the rewards that go with it.

I’m happy that Moyes is happy in England!! FFS, if one of the chances that hit the woodwork had gone in we’d have won, and if the three had gone in we’d have won well. Dundee Utd played well (apart from the time wasting) and when they got the ball they raced forward as a unit, while we had Soro, who only knows how to run into opposition players, and Ajeti or better a Yeti, a big lumbering slow moving creature that couldnae strike a match.
Having said all that, I believe Ange will turn it around and I’m definitely not letting the disappointing start to the season make me turn against him. All the sweeter when the SMSM choke on their words when he wins the League. KTF.
(and please don’t mention Moyes again)

I get frustrated with the reaction of the fans on here saying things like the manager has no clue and with our players we should be beating everyone. So, does that mean it doesn’t matter who your manager is as long as you’ve got more expensive players? Whoever says that simply doesn’t follow football beyond the Glasgow fishbowl. Even a cursory analysis of the EPL will give you some idea of the complexity of football as a competition. Look at Arsenal, Spurs, Chelsea, Man Un etc Look at players who did not do the job in one team but did elsewhere, e.g. Pukki who was scoring a lot with Norwich but a failure at Celtic and look at those who were doing good elsewhere and didn’t do good when transferred, e.g. many of Arsenal’s players, it’s not just Ajeti and Barkas. Probably some of you have more and better examples than me but the point stands: over the top judgments are simply a sign of being unable to defer gratification. Support the team, make constructive criticisms by all means and reserve your wrath for the board and DD – the sources of everything bad at Celtic.

All good points. We are where we are. Very true, which is in Scotland, playing in a league where only 2 teams have a realistic chance of winning it. And when one of them is 6 points behind the manager will come under pressure.

Ange doesn’t have 2 seasons, he might not even have 1. Fans will accept a losing season if they can see progress. After a promising start, we have stalled. Yes I know 6 players missing, we are where we are.

Defensively we are so open it’s scarcely believable. DU should have had a penalty and carved us open several times. Tom Rogic of last season is back, there isn’t a blind alley this guy won’t run up. I’ve stopped screaming at him to lay the ball off, cos I know he just won’t, end result we lose possession. Ajeti has inherited Edouard’s boots from last year. It’s unfair to compare him with Larsson but you knew it hurt Larsson when he didn’t win, Ajeti couldn’t give a monkeys. No desire to give everything to win. A passenger.

Ange ball is great when you are scoring goals, the problem is when you don’t we haven’t a snowball in hells chance of a clean sheet. Yes we have 6 players out, but for the love of god change the shape, tighten up in midfield. Do something different, opposition players can go out there at the moment and know how we are going to play before kick off. We have to show them something different.

October becomes even more important, tough away fixtures and the refs aren’t going to allow Sevco to lose. We can’t afford any dropped points in October. 6 points will be tough, 9 or even 12 forget it.
