Celtic Fans In Leipzig Are Enjoying Tonight’s Game. Let’s Hope They Enjoy Tomorrow’s.

Image for Celtic Fans In Leipzig Are Enjoying Tonight’s Game. Let’s Hope They Enjoy Tomorrow’s.

I have some friends over in Germany at the moment, preparing for the Leipzig game. They have travelled across the continent to be there. Some of the journeys they have made are pretty epic. I, myself, have booked for Madrid. My own journey there will be far less chaotic than that which some of my mates have had to endure for this trip.

Right now, they are crowded into a bar watching Liverpool. Based on that first half they are in a pretty good mood although whether that lasts will depend on whether the Anfield team finally puts this Ibrox irritant to the sword. For now, though, these guys are feeling no pain and having a good old time. Amongst them are guys who follow Celtic everywhere.

Those are the guys I’ll be happiest for if we win tomorrow night. Those guys who have been to some many European away games and seen so many dismal performances. I want to see us do it for all of us, of course, but for them most of all. They earned it.

Our away record in this competition is hellish. Only the thumping win against Anderlecht some years back brightens up a copybook with more than its share of black marks, and some of these folks were at every one of those awful Champions League defeats.

Our away form has to improve. Those guys who spend a lot of money following the team have been through too many bad nights and come home with too many footballing hangovers.

Under Ange, it could well be that the days of ritual humiliation are over with … we’ll see. But tomorrow night is massive and as much as I’m looking forward to it, I’m nervous as well. Because it’s not just about three points or not. We believe that this team has made tangible progress and we want to see it realised. And we deserve it.

So I say to my comrades out there, enjoy your night and tomorrow afternoon. Then go and cheer this team of ours to three massive points and a big step into the future.

    The huns can’t cope with the concept of having free kicks in dangerous positions and penalties awarded against them by an honest referee.

    It will never catch on in Scotland.

    BTW. Moreloss, who was apparently going to give big Virgil a torrid time, has been marked absent for the entire game so far, and the zombies have had NO shots on target.

    Kenny Miller et al sure know what they’re talking about.

    My cat knows more about football than this bunch of Masonic fannies at BBC Scotland.

  • Tony B says:

    NUL POINTS again for the zombie huns.

    No goals either, and likely to finish the group the same.

    What an utter fucking embarrassment they are.

    The Scottish media for the rest of this week ,,

    ‘ It’s been 4-0 , 0-3 and 2-0 defeats so far in the group but Rangers can still make it through with the Ibrox roar behind them ‘

    ‘ Gerrard who was at Anfield watching his old clubs was impressed with Kent and a potential move to Aston Villa is still open ‘

  • Kevan McKeown says:

    Deserved exactly what they got, hee-haw. And it’ll be interestin tae see if the media, jackson, berry etc are gonnae mention the sectarian singin against the pope ye could hear clearly on at least 3 occasions, as well as ‘banned’ song the Billy Boys. Suspect the usual hypocrisy again tho wi nothin said. Btw, did the Liverpool keeper actually touch the ba’ wi his hands at any time in the game, apart from bye kicks, seriously

  • Peterbrady says:

    And no doubt all the scum media will be pissing themselves for the Germans in Ange we trust come on you Bhoys in green HAIL! HAIL!.

  • Martin says:

    I kept a wee wye on the game. The huns were lucky to lose 2 nil.

    As for us, I’d have preferred Liepzig before they changed manager and got their act together again, but such is the nature of following Celtic. Play like we did va Real Madrid and the huns and we stand a food chance. Play like we did against St Mirren and (up front at least) Motherwell and we are goosed.

  • Katana67 says:

    Quite surprised to hear the Ibrox Unwashed belting out their hateful “Famine Song” at Anfield….
    Given the fact that a significant proportion of the Liverpool supporters attending the match were likely to have been descendants of those Unfortunates who fled the Irish Famine in 1840-42, to escape starvation.

    Started up around 39 minutes, the BT cameras homed in on the Uglies, lusty participation evident, put one in mind of the Nuremberg Rallies….
    Then after four minutes, someone in the BT studion obviously cottoned-on, and the crowd microphones were turned down, but it was still audible untill half-time….

    Will UEFA be taking any action ….??

    Will any Liverpool residents make a complaint to their local MPs….??

    Look…..There’s an Orange Squirrel playing the Flute ….!!!!

  • Katana67 says:

    The ‘Famine Song’ at Anfield last night….

    What particularly disturbed me was ‘the wummin’ singing along, their hate-filled faces,as the BT cameras panned-in….

    They should be identified and investigated by Social Services….
    How are the home-circumstances influencing the children….?

    It seems that a ‘Threshold has been Crossed ‘….?

  • Mr Vincent McSherry says:

    I fully expect the Polis,the press and politicians to conveniently ignore,just as they have done for the last 100 years

  • Kevan McKeown says:

    As I suspected, nae mention from Jackson or any of them, about these songs. Total fuckin hypocrites. Failin tae applaude the queens a national disgrace, but spewin sectarian, racist chants……perfectly acceptable. Fuckin maggots that they are.
