Huns ride their luck again. Proper refereeing,they would have lost.

A chara i disagree. IMHO we need a new team and hopefully once more of the support realise that the ‘old guard’ supporters groups either have no inclination to or feel they are unable to stand up to the board / PLC in calling for a Boycott, which we know is the only effective weapon the support have, then perhaps we will see a more radical supporters group formed to become the focal point of protests and a boycott. It happened before and i hope it will happen again.

I can see why you say that.

I’m only pointing out the difference between what was suggested to The President and what the CST decisions were based on that paint me as someone who has lost reason when it’s perfectly clear it is not yet.

I have a viewpoint on CST leadership that is shared by more than myself but would not speak as that would make it personal.

It is purely an issues matter for me.

What are CST trying to achieve ultimately and what is the most effective way to achieve it?

You cannot increase membership on the back of emotions caused by a poor run of results,. After those emotions die away when results reverse or worse do not and depression replaces the anger , what can be done to change the course of the thinking at Board level that is responsible for the failure to keep Celtic as a well respected and competitive opponent in Europe?

Is that not what supporters want whilst being realistic?

Is it wrong to put those expectations on the CST?

Have the CST not by building numbers on that basis given rise to expectations that they are the answer to reversing the decline?

They might well have a strategy that will enable those expectations to be met or perhaps it is still being formulated.

Believe you me , if it is convincing that they can bring about accountability without using past Board behaviour which is what Res12 has morphed into, I’ll be more than glad to get off my provocative soap box..

Celtic show two changes – both in defence – from their 2-0 victory over Ross County.

Centre-half Christopher Jullien drops out of the squad and Diego Laxalt is on the bench, with Nir Bitton and Greg Taylor restored to the starting line-up.( WTF!!!)

Leigh Griffiths, having scored on his first Premiership start of the season, keeps his place up top alongside Odsonne Edouard.

2 up front shocker!

Another line up from Neil’s big book of favorite’s.
If only he could actually see what happens on the field of play?

December 26, 2020 2:43 pm

Oglach/Auldheid If the CST is to gain credibility amongst the wider support as an organisation which can effect real change at board level the issue of pursuing Res 12 needs to be addressed and there is no reason why this can’t be proposed at a future meeting HH 🤔

On a scale of 1-10 how big a prick is Kris Boyd 🤔

How i am starting to feel about Celtic 😥😪

Somebody i used to know
Lisa Hannigan

I get the same 3-step feeling about the CST as I did with CQN years ago.
1. Great Idea!
2. They flatter to deceive
3. They are actually in bed with the PLC

Now I know why this is but I wont post else I will be labelled a C@#t!

Great link up play between Eddy and Griff – keeper saves Griff effort.

Comedy defence at work again – this time Ajer

Gordon64
December 26, 2020 3:08 pm

Bitton booked after 4 mins for sfa following a shocking pass by Ajer

Oglach
December 26, 2020 3:09 pm

Bitton should have scored with a headed effort from an excellent corner

Oglach
December 26, 2020 3:12 pm

Juve really interested in Eddy – errr – why?

Oglach
December 26, 2020 3:13 pm

Bitton heads over from another decent corner

Gordon64
December 26, 2020 3:16 pm

That foul is why Bitton is never a centre half 🤔

Decent enough start without being great. Bloody atrocious conditions-not much chance of any complaints about the pitch not being watered!

December 26, 2020 3:17 pm

Frimpong gets a touch of the ball after 15mins

Gordon64

Griff hits the post after good work by Frimpong

Gordon64,

I’d sub Bitton at half time for Duffy – he’s that bad,

Plus he’s been booked, although harshly, he’s likely to do something stupid.

Good call,I reckon.

Remember Ghirls & Bhoys Hamilton playing with a makeshift team – many of the 1st squad out due to injury (10 i believe?)

Good morning everyone. Of course, where most of you are, it should be Good Afternoon. I hope there are not too many sore heads.

I see there has been some discussion of Res 12 etc etc. Let me clarify my exchange with Auldheid last night. It had nothing to do with Res 12, the CST decision, nor any he said,she said dispute. It was simply about the appropriateness of posting in considerable detail about a personal issue on Christmas day. He thinks he had to do it. I know I shall not read it at this time.

The festive(digestive?) season is here for a short time, a matter of days only. Res 12, CST, personal debates will still be here at the end of it but Christmas 2020 will be gone. Time enough to draw lines in the sand and bring out the cogent arguments.

Others may disagree with my POV but, thankfully, the blog is still open and very tolerant.

I am off out to set up a firepit to toast marshmallows and hotdogs as we now have a white landscape …..one day late!

Good cheer to one and all,

Rebus

PS it is early for a New Year Resolution but I shall make one now. Please JNP, if you are able, come back onto the blog. I miss your input.

Acouple of links to the game on this page.Agreed,there are a number of posters who I wish would comment more often. JNP for one.

Enjoy the marshmallows.

If Edouard had been coached he would have passed there.

Oglach
December 26, 2020 3:36 pm

Eddy – greedy barsturd – he could and should have squared that

Oglach
December 26, 2020 3:39 pm

Is Lenny p’d off that Laxalt has basically said he has no interest in staying?

Why are we trying to play through the middle against a packed defence? We have had some success when we go wider, but for some unknown reason we seem unwilling to learn.

First attempt for a while,easy save from Turnbull

Oglach

2nd shot on target in 46 mins🙄

Gordon64
December 26, 2020 3:48 pm

Even allowing for the horrendous conditions that was pretty poor stuff against a makeshift Accies reserve team. Frimpong and Taylor have hardly been in the game

Oglach
December 26, 2020 3:49 pm

oh you lucky basturd – thought we’d scored

BOBBY MURDOCH'S CURLED-UP WINKLEPICKERS

I wouldn’t like to be playing in those conditions. They are earning every penny of their £500 per week!

With Storm Bella at our tail in the second half we should be shooting from the half way line 🌪️

December 26, 2020 3:57 pm

Not ideal conditions but both teams have to contend with.
Maybe one of the coaching staff can go search for McGregor during half time?
No sign of partnership between Ed or Griff.Both playing for themselves.
In fact no sign that any of our team have played together before.
Ref is obviously well drilled on how to allow both teams a differing standard.
Bitton is crap but his booking was ridiculous.

Torpid stuff first half. Need pace, movement and width.

Same shit different day. But hey ho, some think we can beat the Huns three times and turn this league around. Laughable
