Season 2020’21: Game 26: Celtic (A)

Recommended Posts

It looked like a stonewall penalty live, but the replay shows it just outside the box. Nice work by long to win it. 

After that start we've restricted them to few chances, and started to look a bit more comfortable in the ball. We probably shouldn't still be in the game, but we are, so no complaints at this point.

not played well, but would still be in it if we could do basic defending....teams at this level shouldnt lose goals at this level 

Pretty boring for the fans if every game was 0-0, how would you decide who won the league!:huh:

First 10/15 mins was horrible, but we've been better since. Still basically allowing them to waltz though us but restricted their chances better.  Awful attempt from the free kick by Long.

Yes, we have to make better use of any set pieces we get up around their box.

Doesn't matter if it was inside or not, we weren't getting it anyway.

Alexander just needs to print out the match stats and pin it to the changing room wall. That's how you motivate players.

I thought it was a pen, however, I’d need to see a decent replay to fully make up my mind. VAR would have been interesting to see on this one.

Yes, I think we are lacking some balls.

It's worth remembering that Nic Walsh was the referee who watched Bolingoli jump up and handle the ball 9 feet off the ground and waved play on last season.

We've tended to be a one half team recently, so hopefully a bit more to offer in the second half

Wasn't a penalty so can't have too many complaints.

Singling Chris Long out for being a waste of a jersey is very harsh. Don't think anyone has had a particularly good game. Midfield are non existent, balls into the front three are terrible. We aren't moving the ball well enough, couple of passes and going long, that's bread and butter for Celtic. 

Saying that, Celtic pressing us very well. 1-0, still in it. Big second half required.

Same game plan as against the Rangers;  let them play down the wings and we deal with the crosses into the box. They have had loads of possession but haven't really troubled Kelly. Still optimistic we might nick a goal. According to the "commentators" they have just realised that is what we are doing but the Tic are supreme and Rogic and Turnbull are just waiting to score.  COYW.

long has been caught in possession a few times , if he comes good in 2nd half fair enough.

Fuck off Motherwell. You just fucking cannot allow players easy passes in and around your own box. Fucking pathetic.
