Game 25: Celtic (H) 5th February 2020

Recommended Posts

Might be different from everyone on here but I am not too bothered about tonight even though I loathe them and once the game starts I will be wanting us to do them. But for me Saturday is far more important. I want all our key players fit and available for St Mirren. If anyone is feeling tired or jaded I would rest them. The last thing we need is a couple of injuries and or a sending off that would weaken us for the weekend.

We are more than capable of winning tonight, I say fuck it and go for it. Start with Ndjoli, Long and Rolando in a Barcae-sque formation. Let's press them high up the park and go for it!

If you were a betting man you'd go 3-0 Celtic but I've been a Motherwell supporter long enough to know that often our results are  counter intuitive.  Just the fact that we were so bad against Livingston makes me think we might get something out of this tonight.

Very true. I doubt any 'Well fan would be too surprised if we got something out of tonight's game then lose on Saturday.

I totally agree that Saturday is more important.  I would rather win the cup than finish 3rd or 4th to be honest as it has been so long since we lifted anything.

Still would love a victory against that mob.

We aren't winning any cups if we roll over to Celtic.

Put down a marker tonight and if and when we get to the stages of the cup were we are playing Rangers and Celtic you have a result at your back.

Otherwise it's going to be the last Cup final all over again.

Fair enough to go with your own system and not change the way you play too much to suit the opposition. But if the idea of Gallagher and Hartley going man for man with Griffiths and Edouard doesn't give you the fear, you're a braver man than me..

Looking forward to writing off the new guy on his 60 minute debut.

Let's hope he has an Alan McCormack rather than a Ross McCormack (2nd time round) style debut...

Given the doings Rangers and Celtic have handed out at Fir Park since we went 433, I’m surprised that we haven’t went more defensive tonight. I thought we’d have sacrificed a forward for O’Hara or Mugabi.

We got a doing first game of the season but that was down to simple individual errors on our part and the fact that Celtic were 5 for 5 on chances. I still think it’s our best option.

Weeyin is this on US telly, and what channel if so? Got dodgy WiFi atn

Sadly not. No Scottish games broadcast on proper telly these days.

If you find a local Irish bar, they might have a Celtic TV feed.

Cheers, WiFi holding up.

 

That pass from Aarons to Long was lovely, he looks very busy.

On a plus note Aarons looks a step up from Seedorf. Just hope we don’t concede a hatful here, not looking great.
