Does anyone know if there is a pitch inspection planned? It's bucketing down here and not forecast to stop.

Anybody else think that said pitch invasion at first.

:lol:

Wonder how they will behave today? They might try and take the moral high ground? Or more likely revert to type. Overcrowd the front of south stand, set off pyro, go on the track if they score, sing about the IRA and smash some seats.

Can see clubs like us and Killie having to cut their allocation further, as it’s clear the police aren’t willing or able to control them.

Either we’ll decide it’s not worth it, or something serious will happen and the decision will be taken out our hands. h**s at Killie last weekend could be considered a warning/near miss.

They score  they'll be on the track trying to out do the proddy "scenes ' of last week.  Saying that , I would love to beat them and send them away with their tails between their legs. Mon the Well

Any joy we get today is going to be down Celtic's left hand side , if the new boy Bolingoli plays . It sounded like he had an absolute howler in their midweek game , and could be the weak link in their defence that we need to expose .

There's no point in going gung-ho against them , but setting up positively and utilising our wide men down that side when chances arise could be our best bet .

If we're up for it from the off I can see this being a close and entertaining encounter , and have a feeling we will take something from it .

Not sure what to make of this game today.

Last year Robbo’s stuffy tactics worked to an extent at home against this mob.

However not sure if we open up to much today they will punish us. Will be a fine line.

Aslong as we stop forrest from cutting across the face of the goals and putting it away from 20yards. Seems to enjoy doing that to us.

Polworth, Donnelly and Campbell got owned by Bartley, Jacobs and Pittman. 

I'm sure they'll do fine against Brown, McGregor and Ntcham.

After the match I have to scoot off into town on a train full of Celtic supporters to meet the Celtic supporting burd for dinner.

I need a result today.

Someone needs to tell these players failure is not an option today!

Long and Seedorf in for Scott and Ilic. Feel a wee bit for Scott, but at the same time keen to see what Long offers.

Yes, its a fine balance.  Our midfield will be crucial.  It has to compete and get in Celtic's faces, thereby shielding our defence and certainly not defending too deeply.  Not only that the wingers have to link up with the lone striker, to ensure he's not left isolated. Is Long suited to that role? We'll find out soon enough.  I'm concerned that although Grimshaw has a good engine, he is suspect defensively.  

Its all to play for and we can get a result, but a few factors will need to go in our favour.

Very good start from us, pressing Celtic very high up the park.

 

What pace we have up front!

Finding the lack of twitter updates very frustrating.
