The midweek points haul was very, very significant indeed, I’m sure you would agree.
But would you agree Sundays three points are equally important?
Momentum swung around 8.30pm Wednesday evening, that sweet swing being the culmination of some excellent transfer business and this unit becoming ruthlessly consistent.
It took win after win after win to get us into looking at pole position, then another one to achieve it. As such every victory was vital and played its own part in placing us atop the heap, but just because we are top and bested the Champions doesn’t mean we can ease off a little.
Sunday’s clash doesn’t offer as much glamour or spoils as the midweek one, but make no mistake it’s absolutely a must win. A draw wouldn’t derail our title charge, only slow it a touch.
A win however keeps our boot on their neck.
Another victory offers a cherry on top of a great Celtic week. This clash affords us the opportunity to build upon the stunning 3nil thrashing handed out, plus send the current Champions into their tough evening match 4 points behind.
While prolonging the feel good factor.
Wednesday’s result shall correctly enter the pantheon of famous victories, not winning this weekend risks taking the shine off those heroics. It risks calls of inconsistency, perhaps offering others hope that we aren’t a relentless juggernaut that simply sweeps all aside.
It was important to record a statement victory, but it’s equally important to build upon that statement. Motherwell FC now offer that chance.
By hook or by crook this away fixture must be won. With both Edinburgh teams one after the other the demoralized Champions shall attempt to find comfort and solace wherever they can, Celtic dropping points would be celebrated. Especially by the media.
If there’s going to be any celebrations this weekend, it must be firstly at Fir Park. After that the rest can do whatever they want but Glasgow Celtic must handle their business, not necessarily in style though that would help.
Three “more” points please, to show the hallmark of winners. To start reaching out for that title.
Great shout -,sheen will come off Wednesday nite if we don’t capture all 3 points at Mothers’ on Sunday.
We were discussing how important it was back in ‘98 for Celts to follow up on a fantastic Paul Lambert inspired midweek ( goal ) v The Old Rangers at Paradise.
How he followed that up with an equally spectacular shot at Mothers’ on the following Saturday.
Hatate …is 9/1 to open scoring and lead us to a vital 3 point win on Sunday.
Bet responsibly folks…

Aye, good to hear from you pal…they are developing the ‘own penalty box’ dive into an art form…grrr
Most of us will have seen something similar when a Chelski defender got caught wrong side to Harry Kane and opted to take a tumble … goal chopped off.
Btw many thanks for Pass to Paradise – both Mrs SeS and I have made good use of it. Must treat you to a few jars ‘doon the watter’ when we get a suitable chance in next few months.
BON VOYAGE to my brother-in-law who is off to Australia for quite a while to see his family.
A long-delayed trip,thanks to the pandemic.
I hope you have a fantastic time,T!
HAPPY HOOOOOPY BIRTHDAY to
He can tell you his age himself. But if he was a tree,they’d work it out by counting the rings.
We didn’t work this hard to throw it all away. Keep our foot on their throat,really pile on the pressure.
Happy Hoopy Birthday Big Packy 🎂🎂🎂🍺🍺🍺🍷🍷🍷🥃🥃🥃.
Hope you have a great day 👍
Big Packy: Happy 67th or 57th or 47th Birthday. If it’s none of those it’s still a true story!
Have a great day indoors, weather shite for dug walking😁
Have a wonderful Birthday buddy!
Son-in-law having to isolate for 48 hours following PCR test prior to flight to Australia. Don’t half make it hard to get into their own country.
Hope he has a great time as he’s waited absolute yonks! And he’s a citizen!! We’d be about 6001 on the waiting list.
Good morning everyone.
Prestonpans bhoys from last comment on previous article. We’ve had to listen to some nonsense from their managers over the years but that from GVB is right up there with the daftest of comments.
I’d be more concerned if I was him that Juranovic took Kent out of his back pocket before he put his shorts in the washing machine.
I’d also be happy if they dominate us in all future games and leave the goal scoring to us.
Mrs Kitts and I want to wish a happy birthday to Big Packy, and that is a true story. Have a great day, hope wee Joan spoils you rotten.🍺🍺🎂
Hun tv commentary
Craig 76, thanks, I enjoyed that clip. Gordon Smith doing a wee play on the ‘what’s the goalie doing’ catchphrase replacing goalie with Barisic. ☘️
Happy Hoopy Birthday Big Packy. 1953 was a good year! LOL 🙂
I could watch that on a loop all day. Their pain is glorious.😎😎
CBB/Sol Kitts 👍
Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday Big Packy, Happy Birthday to you.
BP, Lang may yer lum reek.
“Birthday caird pish!” 😉
Does that mean BIGPACKY is older than you again?
Correct. You would think that a ‘top’ manager would realise that having more possession-ha,54%,big deal!-is irrelevant to chances created,shots on target and expected goals.
His concern should be if his players also believe that,and are putting Wednesday down to simple bad luck,against the run of play.
Bobby, For the time being! I’ll catch up with him again later in the year. LOL 🙂
Happy Birthday Big Packy
Love the outfit Wee Joan got you 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Happy Hoppy Birthday to Big Packy,👍👏🍷🍺
Happy Birthday, Wee Jimmy!
Craig, LOL, That was in Harthill and he was heading for Larkhall. I think it WAS Big Packy! 🙂
I was just waiting for him to say “that’s a true story ” 🤣🤣
Wonder if it’s worth a bet for Kidderminster Harriers to get a result against West Ham?
No offence, SES, but do you actually call Motherwell ‘Mothers’?
You call they scum ‘Mothers’?
Still waiting on crc, ATOB, chalmersbhoy mahe, Scaneke and McCaff for the Predictor
Do you also call Parkheid ‘Parkers ’?
Happy Birthday Big Jim Packy! I hope you and Wee Joan have a great day. That previous post was an old photo I found of you, I hope you don’t mind me posting it! 🤣🤣🤣
Oh,you know him then…
Conte talking about EPL.
In this moment, this league is very tough [for him]. If you compare this league with other leagues, you play another sport here.
I wonder what he would think of the SPFL? Highland Games?
He must be a Man of Steel to wear that to Harthill and the Larkhall 🦸♂️
I don’t believe it! Kidderminster Harriers (non-league) are leading 1-0 against West Ham on the hour mark. 🙂
Did you put your bet on Kidderminster
Bet you’re kicking yourself 😀
Robert Plant (Led Zep) in the crowd supporting Kidderminster!
AFTERNOON ALL, thanks for the birthday wishes, much appreciated👍 craig 76 and mcaff 🤩 ,BTW jimthetim53 sent me down a drink, a box of tetleys tea bags, thanks jim 🤩
Packy, you forgot to mention it was an 80s box not a 40s. All heart me!
Did you see my Happy Birthday tune at one minute past midnight?
JIM, yes seen that👍
what do you mean 80 bags, there were only 40 in it when I opened it ,solkitts has intercepted it.😎
What a shame, West Ham equalize in injury time!
West ham with a late late equaliser boo boo boo
Are Kidderninster players part time? if so they will find the extra time tough!
