Hacks Split Down The Middle On Tomorrow As Ange-Ball Has Them Fearful

hacks at The Record gave their views on tomorrow, and I found them interesting in a number of ways.

Those who think Celtic will win are split 50/50 with those who think Ibrox club will.

rest have gone for a draw, with some of them thinking the score will be 3-3.

I am quite surprised at that; these guys really do have it in their heads that our defence will just fold hand at the first sign of pressure.

Look again at goals we conceded in midweek; two moments of absolute madness, not the sort to be repeated in a hurry.

Look at goal that was scored. A carbon copy of the one at Celtic Park against AZ from the same player.

We have rocked these people to core.

They believed, they absolutely believed, that vast gap from last season was reflective of positions of the two clubs.

They believed Ange would take too long to stamp his mark on the side.

They completely over-estimated the impact of those early games and what they meant.

The idea that Ange might have fast answers, that we might well have a better squad, that we definitely have better individual players, has hit them like a sledgehammer, which is why they are focussed solely on the negatives.

To do otherwise focuses on why things might be going our way.

Before Ange started to stamp his mark on this team you looked at a squad which had lost so many players and wondered “what can this guy do in such a sort space of time?” It’s incredible.

We face the closure of the window in a couple of days, and although we expect to lose Edouard we look set to have, at a minimum, a top striker in Kyogo and the guy who finished top scorer in Holland last year, in a playing system which rewards attacking football.

We are almost unrecognisable, and even those who can’t quite bring themselves to tip us to win think we have enough firepower to make it an uncomfortable afternoon for their favourites.

They are right, and this team is just getting started.

    Goals win games. Celtic score goals. Two individual errors caused us to have to rally and defend our lead, aggregate i mean, on the night. We did, and we were better over the 2 games. Sevco would’ve buckled under the AZ preassure. I’m watching a team that are still to gel, still to bring in another 2-3 players in key areas. Deal are on the way and will be done, stronger now and getting stonger. Tomorrow will be a test of coping with the weird ref calls and keeping the heid. Do what we do best and a 1-4 score is realistic.
    In short, we will win and do it well.

      Agreed. Two bizarre moments that obviously put the team right off their rhythm, the odds of it happening again anytime soon must be miniscule, surely? Regardless, the way the bhoys withstood the fairly relentless pressure from AZ to see us through was remarkable.
      Maybe we will see the player Starfelt really is if played in his preferred position. Unlike James I am as yet unconvinced by Welsh and we need experienced defenders, frankly.

    Celtic have been bullied by Rangers over the last 2 seasons, particularly in midfield, and they will attempt to bully Celtic again tomorrow to dominate the midfield, and the game once again. Tomorrow will highlight if lessons have been learned, or if the likes of our captain McGregor, Rogic and others will once again disappear from the game when the going gets tough. Win the midfield battle and win the game.

    Opinion – so many factors influenced in them being given the league last season and we know what they were

    Fact – they’re weren’t that good

    Opinion – rankers 0 – Celtic 3

    Same old story. Tippy tappy from us. They score from a set piece and create more chance. 8 games without a win and the last win was lucky in League Cup. Today we saw still the need for a centre half. Soro is abysmal, Starfelt poor, McGregor needs moving forward , Christie weak, Abaaa was non -existent. Rangers deserved it again. We need another centre half and left back. And defensive midfielder.
