Celtic Face A Confident Side On Opening Day As Martindale Throws In The Towel.

Image for Celtic Face A Confident Side On Opening Day As Martindale Throws In The Towel.

The game at the weekend is one we’ve all been looking forward to, and I’m pretty glad that Aberdeen are going into it on a bit of a high, scoring plenty of goals and with confidence soaring. That’s exactly how we want our opponents to be.

I hate coming up against teams which offer nothing and are content to do damage limitation. Not only is it boring, but you know that those clubs will play the exact same way at Ibrox, and I want clubs to have a right go at them this year.

Aberdeen should come to Celtic Park full of confidence and wanting to win. We need that, we need challenged by more than just one club. As I said in my piece about Hibs, it does us no good to come up against teams who consider themselves beat before a ball is even kicked, a case in point being Martindale and his attitude towards our rivals.

Did you read him today? Christ sake, he sounds like he’s already chucked it, as if he’s decided that there’s no chance and that they should just be content to get through the game. He considers opening day a write off.

He even sounds like he’s looking forward to watching them more than his own team. They fought hard against us last year. They were pathetically weak whenever they turned up against our rivals, and he was virtually drooling after every game.

Nobody at Aberdeen is rolling into town on Sunday with the same idea.

I am sure they won’t be. Even at St Mirren, Goodwin knew how to have a go at teams and whilst I don’t think he’s the appointment Aberdeen fans were looking for in order to move decisively forward, he’s better than a lot of the alternatives.

    Martinjail the drug dealer time served in PRISON for his CRIME for punting drugs.
    The SFA are supposedly to carryout drugs tests in our game and here we have a jailed drug pusher managing a club that the so called SFA have to show up at his stadium or place of work to carryout the tests.
    He better hope someone else is looking after the Gym bags.

    Fartindales just an ODIOUS wee PRIK, A Junky Bastard!! Nae way these Cunts shd be playing 1st anyway, only way the SCUM il be tap ae the League!!

  • Nick66 says:

    Based on Martindale’s post match comments. I went to Ibrox, I watched Sevco, (paraphrasing), oh they were wonderful. Talking up Sevco when he’s in his own teams post match Q&A. I’d sack the idiot imediately after that capitulation speech.

      Probably full of coke doing the interview with some serious heavy duty Columbian white powder dripping from his blue nose.

  • Jimmy says:

    I don’t care about what others see or feel. If we get going right from the kick off this year then I am confident we are on our way to a successful season. First and foremost winning the league is our priority but having a good campaign in Europe would be fantastic. Been a tough watch seeing teams that aren’t anywhere near the stature of our club playing in the Champions league. I believe in Ange and the bhoys. Let’s make Celtic park the fortress it was. Now that would raise the roof.

  • Michael Conway says:

    Martindale is a fraud of a manager when it comes to his team playing sevco

  • John says:

    Other teams are irrelevant now. Friendlies are over. Talking is over. Its now up to Celtic to do the business on the park.

    This is all that matters.

  • Johnny Green says:

    Maybe Martindale is just lulling the huns into a false sense of security (wishful thinking), but I think every team is up for the first game of the season and that the Livingston players will be no different. We will find out soon enough.

  • Johnny Green says:

    Aberdeen have done reasonably well in their games played so far, but their opposition has not been of that high a calibre. They will still have the bit between their teeth and be determined to do well, but this relentless Celtic team at home will take some coping with this season and I am confident that we will win with a bit in hand. We do not STOP!

    • Jimmy says:

      Well done Johnny, your agreeing with Sean without the need to bait a fellow Celtic fan.
      Good point and I agree with you both as illustrated above.

      • Johnny Green says:

        Jimmy, you and Sean must have loved Freddie Mercuries version of ‘The Great Pretender’

        Are you in the Brazen Heid just now holding hands.? 🙂

        • Jimmy says:

          Something wrong with you Johnny. I was agreeing with you. Seems you have a split personality. Jekyll and Hyde. One is ok, the other is a shuck licking sycophant. Anything for a wee gold star for Wee Johnny boy.

  • Michael McCartney says:

    Some of the comments on here are a disgrace. We’re talking football here, what the Ibrox mob do and what Martindale does or doesn’t do won’t matter a damn. As long as The Celtic play their expansive game and take 50% of the chances created no one will live with us in Scotland.

  • Peterbrady says:

    Why are the board at Livingston the players and most important the support putting up with this drug dealing wee bald fat hun prick he should be sacked immediately then he can join his zombie filth at the auld hoor spewing there poison

  • Pan says:

    Goodwin is honest! That’s the difference.
    We all know that certain other teams lie down to the bears because their managers are supporters. People like that should not be employed by clubs as they do not have integrity.
    Goodwin has integrity and he will give Aberdeen his best shot against all other teams. Therefore he will have our respect.

  • JimBhoy says:

    There should be no plastic pitches in Scotland’s top flight.

    Managers are now joining refs,game into disrepute anyone????
