Any news on Armstrong, Roberts and Griffiths? It's been a long, long time since we saw wee Paddy in particular and the three of them have missed a lot of football this season and must be bursting to get involved in the run-in.

Just as suspected, VAR makes 'honest mistakes' as well.
Sweden should have had a certain penalty, but the three wise monkeys looking at VAR favour Germany?
This farcical technology will cause riots if it's enforced all over.

Once a Bhoy

{Ed007's Note - If the VAR is holding refs to account then who's holding VAR to account for their decisions? Over in Germany the VAR chief Hellmut Krug was sacked over match fixing allegations and it opens up a whole new avenue to the people who try and fix matches.}

Maybe they should implement a system, your allowed 3 looks at VAR per team. Ref makes the final decision, but the team decides wether he looks. 3 looks per team. So that there’s less controversy between decisions etc? Obviously the rules would have to be put into writing.


2.) 23 Jun 2018 20:07:25
How did we ever make it without var honestly it's still a ref making the decision pointless if I ask me waste of money.


3.) 23 Jun 2018 21:01:16
It's crap and it's ruining football.
Football before VAR was all about winning some, losing some decisions.
It's crap.

Well said Rab. It's shite.

{Ed007's Note - Eloquently put buddy and very true (yes) I wonder if all the idiot pundits on TV bigging it up have thought about their long term jobs, if there's no contentious decisions what are they going to talk about, mistakes VAR makes?
Have the rules of the game now changed so that the referee's decision isn't final?}


5.) 23 Jun 2018 22:48:36
I agree with above. VAR should be limited to 3-4 times, called by the Managers like lives similar to Tennis. Refs do the job as thy have since Football started othetwise.

Even worse than watching World Cup when England win - watching World Cup when one of their (many) bitter rivals loses. The fake sympathy, gloating and mocking sums them up.
This tournament might well give the SNP their biggest boost since 1314. Ha ha ha.

In previous years England boasted about how they would win the World cup because they had lots of world class players.
This time they are adopting a different approach. Apparently they don't have lots of world class players but they can win the World cup because nobody expects them to and Gareth Southgate is a nice guy.
It's certainly a new way to look at things.


2.) 21 Jun 2018 22:47:09
I expect the FA will offer Rangers millions for Gerrard to help out now that Gareth S has a cold shoulder.

Guys all joking a side, there is no stand out team,
Spain first half against Ronaldo
Mexico
Croatia tonight?
England for first 30 minutes?

Let me be first to say it, they could win it!

OMC, With Jimmy Cranky in charge of the SNP i don't think that vote will happen.

Watching the highlights again on BT - this time with the sound on - and the utter bull and biased drivel from Slug and Slimey against everything Celtic is disgusting and the only time they shut up was when Celtic scored lol

How these two narrow minded bigots were given a Celtic game reminded me of why I cancelled SLY TV.
Watching the dirty challenges going unpunished and the numerous honest mistakes of Madhun reminded me of the quote from big Jock - "If you're good enough the referee doesn't matter".

BR has instilled the same mentality into the current squad and has them totally focused on their performance and the job in hand, where previous managers and players would have been distracted and discouraged by these people.

I honestly don't think the refs are biased OaB. They're just sh*te. Hearts had a goal chopped off which I would have been raging about.

As for McCoist and Craigan though, spot on. You can almost hear the sighs of dejection when Celtic score. You can see the pain in their faces too when the likes of Sutton so much as talk positively about Celtic. Best part of the broadcast for me watching those two squirm.


2.) 08 May 2018 11:58:33
I can't stand either, both rats . but I don't think mcoist is that biased in his commentaries . he always (whether grudgingly ) corrects himself when wrong . and his praise of our football/ players is always open and vocal . better than walker.


3.) 08 May 2018 13:18:29
Totally agree about the goal Jim; however he allowed two atrocious challenges on Brown and Forrest, that encouraged more foul play and ignored other minor infringements where Hearts gained advantage.


4.) 08 May 2018 14:40:09
Few people have mentioned the Wee huns goal that was chopped off. they shouldn’t even have had the corner that led to the chopped off goal, lustig was clearly fouled but madden gave a corner instead of a foul! And as for craigan and fat sally, I still would love to know why to huns were picked to commentate on a Celtic game? And don’t give me it’s there job pish! Both of them were creaming in there drawers when that mob scored! OAB makes a great point to. one of the reason I left SLY was because the coverage and commentators were woeful! Listening to that on Sunday made my blood boil! If fat sally has to be there then Sutton should be the co commentator! And the same goes for craigan! But these 2 together on any Celtic game should never happen!

Sensational start, fantastic football and another hammering.
All eleven were magnificent today and were up for it, hungry and confident to get those hard earned medals and the 7th title in-a-row.
This was a perfect performance all over the pitch and if it wasn't for their 'keeper it would have been 10.
Congratulations to BR and The Bhoys, for not only winning another league, but doing it the Celtic way in style against the manky mob.

Onceabhoy. I agree fantastic performance but the gap is closing. Rangers put 6 passes together in the first half. Have not seen that for over 2 years so they are getting closer.

Going to miss our Hun-skelping Talisman today - not even on the bench, but Edouarde has shown he knows where the net is and will cause problems.
Boyata and Gordon made (more) bad decisions/ errors last week and can't afford any today; while
Forrest needs to get the finger out as he has been coasting through games for weeks, without doing what we know he is capable of and wee Roberts must be fed up sitting on that bench yet again.
The players know what is expected - and what to expect, so as long as they all do their jobs and utilise the difference in class, we will be just fine.
I don't know what's happened to Armstrong? As he was just starting to show some form and is missing again, but McGregor is more than capable of doing a job in these games - as is Rogic. COYBIG.

We seem to be Southampton's feeder club as that is the fourth player we have sold them in recent years.
Not complaining as we get decent cash and sell-on bonuses, but is it sheer coincidence that we supply them with so much talent?

Didn't know Armstrong was out. That's disappointing as he has looked like his old self recently and is more direct than Ntcham, plus he makes others play around him.

Baptism of fire for Bain, but Dorus has never looked up to it.
Would have loved to have seen Edouarde and Dembele play together and rip into them, but with so much quality on the bench we have several options if required. Strong feeling there will be a red card and penalty today and weak Willy Collum will be pushed to his limit.

Even before his injury, I thought Forrest was always favourite to start ahead of Roberts; as BR seems to prefer his style and the fact he is a permanent feature. It's disappointing for me, as after last season, I saw Roberts as a possible long term addition and enjoyed his flair, trickery and eye for very special goals - and assists.

Even if they don't start it's a boost to have such a strong pool fit again - even without Griff. This should give us a very strong team and bench to approach every eventuality.

Like 'Eric', Allen, Ciftci and Compper, BR clearly does not see Gamboa in his plans and although I want every current Celtic player to do well in Russia - I don't think he will be here next season.

Not going to bad-mouth him as he made a fantastic contribution to the 'Invincible' season and was a potential Celtic great - if he had, had our club at heart, which he clearly hadn't and was looking elsewhere for a wee while now. Good luck to him, now we must progress and improve and concentrate on fully committed players.

Said before many times, I don't like International football and so far this WC has done very little to change my opinion.
There have only been about three or four games worthy of the event, with too many jaded and below average performances from players who are arguably the very best in their country at their position.
I have actually fallen asleep during two games and don't get me started on this VAR - which, when/ if it becomes mandatory, will create merry hell, especially in Scotland.

Would reckon it's wishful thinking (myself included ha ha) as he seemed to have made his mind up about his future when he waved goodbye after Broonie's testimonial.
The cash already spent on securing long term deals for current players and bringing Edouarde here permanently has shown ambition and commitment by the board, however and I am confident we will bring in more quality- even if it's not the wee man, who, it was reported, sees his future down south.
