2019'20 Game 13: Celtic (A)

Recommended Posts

Shite from Grimmy at their goal. He's far too passive to be a defender. Gallagher was unlucky but if he is going to hit it inside he needs to put his foot through it.

I was too harsh on Maguire earlier, he's done pretty well. Cole has worked his socks off and Long has done nothing but gurn at his teammates.

Can’t argue with any of that. We still give the ball away too easily too often which makes it harder for ourselves. Don’t like it when they get Forrest 1 on 1 with Tait

Maguire in for LD. Tait in for Hartley.

So poor from Grimshaw there and Tait under absolutely no pressure there.

 

We'll do well to keep this respectable now.

I suspect my only chance of a happy ending today is if I buy the wife a really big bunch of flowers.

 

and thats why there is negativity its as predictable as rain 2-0. Celtic far from impressive and we cant lay a punch on them.. as was correctly said at 1-0......... game done.

A reasonable first half, and at least we have defended quite well . And despite my previous negativity we are still in it. 

Your previous  negativity  is looking justified now, it's a long way back now from 2-0 :mellow:

The truth is there for all to see. We have been much better this season although Hibs and Hearts being turgid (until now anyway) has reflected well on us in terms of results and league placings. 

The reality is we are still fairly soft at the back and Tait and Grimshaw are average defenders at best and are routinely found out against much faster and better players. Grimshaw won player of the month yet I actually thought his distribution and defending had been quite poor last few games. Must be just me.  Would like to see the Celtic 2nd goal but would wager it was totally unavoidable. 

Games at Parkhead will not define our season but we always hope for a miracle....ah well.

Hibs away next will be a huge game. They will have a new Manager most likely and if we fail to get a positive result in that game our season may dip a little.

However, it’s not the worst performance at Celtic Park, so I was wrong to be so negative.

and whats the difference losing well and losing badly ... absolutely bugger all ... but they'll be queuing up to take positives from the defeat, its the Scottish mentality we are comfortable losers from the top of the game to the juniors

then someone would interupt your dream

Plenty of possession, several dead-ball situations around their box, but no end product.

Wtf is Tait doing ? Rank poor defending. I have huge admiration for him but sadly I think his best days are in the past.  It was a fairly basic cross into the box.
