Well so the saying goes but it’s quite apt for tonight’s game. The team really have to stand up and be counted.
Celtic’s record in Europe since WGS left is nothing short of shocking with the exception of a win in Moscow our away form has been poor.
Last season we beat Braga at home but the damage was done in the first leg in Portugal. We then beat Utrech 2 – 0 at home and proceeded to totally collapse in the second leg.
Since Martin O’Neill left successive managers have had to downsize the wage bill which is fair enough because we don’t want to end up like our biggest rivals. However we have now reached a point where our bank debt is just over £0.5m which for a company with a turnover in excess of £50m is actually very small.
So how will we play tonight? It’s a cert Lenny will go 4-5-1 with Sammy leading the line.
Basically it could all come down to either Sammy playing a blinder and we get a few goals or Sammy dithering and falling on his back side and we waste possession. The big question is who will play in goals. Will it be Forster or Zaluska ?
Central Scotland Police have arrested a 24 year old man from Callander alleged to have published a Neil Lennon hate site.
As of yet TCN does not know the identity of this person but like all Celtic fans we will be following the subsequent court case with interest.
