That's your thoughts on it and being a Celtic supporter and possibly officer you are correct and it's only right to defend them. However other people are entitled to their opinions. Telling people to engage their brains is again smacks of arrogance and being disrespectful. I geuinely have great time for Celtic and they way they have progressed on and off the field but I will never agree with doing something like what they did last night. Time to move on though
Ah it's great to have the soccer and these debates back 😊!! I dont think any team would start with 10 if they had 11 on purpose come on now!! Strange one but let's move on. Great result for the bridge yest. What's the story with villa any1 know? You'd expect them too Win them sort of games.
Have to agree Town were poor. They had a great pre season but it's a new team and it's only the 1st match. They will have to improve and they will. Expectations are low
People would make ya laugh. Lack of respect they say. Celtic made a call based on what the player had told them on when he would be there for the game. They had him on the card as a starter so to sub him would mean using a player nd not bein able to use the player when he eventually came to the game - 2 blows in 1. Wasn't at the game but says enough when hearing wildies rarely threatened in the first half against 10 men. Not sure about this but heard wildies played 1-4-6-0? Is that true crazy stuff altogether.…great that the season is back.
On a lighter note was at the town game. Bansha hit woodwork alright but town still have Scully mcsharry Comerford quinlivan shanahan etc so will be v strong. Dave McGrath came on too…him n shanahan looked good upfront. Barry ryan at 33 maybe lot of miles on the legs and not the player he was few years back. Interesting game next wk.
Is it true that the referee never turned up for the Town game and T Maher had to fill in, the fact that he made himself available at short notice deserves a bit of credit since referees get so much stick on here...Barry Ryan is 29/30?
I hope Celtic get tore apart by every club they play there is n arrogance about them
I think if michaels or town did it, they would be the first to slag them over it. They may have had good reasons but I still think it was arrogant and disrespectful. I was mortified a few seasons ago when the town players wouldnt stay on the pitch when Villa won the league. Even the tone of Roberto and other Celtic supporters and officials on this site is arrogant. Telling people to engage their brain and people would make you laugh, they refuse to see the other persons opinion. I like Celtic but they can get very defensive and now it appear they are above criticism. They really showed Wildies and their subs what they thought of them. Everyone applauded them on the great cup runs and especially the style of football but they will have lost friends over this.
Lets set the record straight here. Celtic had 2 substitutes, both very young lads who were helping out on the day considering the loss of so many players. Celtic names the strongest team available by naming Paul Kennedy up front. Paul Kennedy was due to be 5 mins late for the start of the game however he got further delayed than he thought something that Celtic weren't to know otherwise he would have been named as a sub. To suggest that Celtic decided just to name 10 players is ludicrous if anything the fact that they were willing to give one of their best players as much time as needed is testament to the fact that they realised that it was going to be a very difficult challenge. Had they known Paul Kennedy was going to be as late as he was they would have without doubt named his as a sub. It was a gamble that didn't pay off. To suggest that they were belittling the challenge of Wilderness is completely wide of the mark. In fact the two clubs have a good relationship. People come on this to throw mud in a lot of cases but it's not always accurate. Having won just 2 trophies I can assure you the club is anything but arrogant. Clonmel Celtic is a lot more receptive to clubs that are not as well off as they are, its not so long ago celtc were in a similar position and they realise that and also how fortunate they have been in recent yrs. Arrogance for the majority of the clubs is not an issue, as with every club there are one or two who may feel different. In this case it had nothin to do with arrogance.
