Some embarrassing central defending, first a Scales' blunder led to the pressure for the first goal then a rusty Carter Vickers dallying on the ball, otherwise Celtic showing signs of competence at this level.

Quote from: clarshack on September 29, 2023, 09:46:09 PMWhen the likes of Varadkar and Bono are talking about a United Ireland it must be only a matter of time. It wasn't that long ago that Varadkar wouldn't even entertain the idea so why now the change?But now Sinn Féin are in the saddle riding the high horse. FG's negative campaigning only seems to strengthen Sinn Féin, why not put a bit of green out there?
Quote from: From the Bunker on September 27, 2023, 09:40:35 PMRónán hasn't the appropriate mettle to rile up a mob on that level, he just gives me the impression of being a vainglorious gobshíte bound for ignominy. Brolly would rip him apart in a debate, I'd pay good money to witness that one.Quote from: Itchy on September 27, 2023, 09:13:13 PMQuote from: From the Bunker on September 27, 2023, 08:53:29 PMQuote from: Itchy on September 27, 2023, 08:21:23 PMThank the Lord we have people like Ronan to educate us idiots in the herd. Look at the people who he dog whistles to for f**k sake
Sometimes it's no harm to have some one with a different view. Doing the liberal thing is not always doing the right thing. They might not agree with you, they might not be totally right (or wrong), but there is always something they will ad to a debate.
Even when they rile up hatred towards marginalised people resulting in attacks on them. Loads of horseshite lad and you know it.
Has Ronan Mullen done the above? I don't recall him ever doing it. Does not seem like his sort of gig.

Quote from: Tony Baloney on September 24, 2023, 08:22:32 PMFrom the passers hand, the ball landed about 5m forward into the hands of the try scorer. I say draw a line on a paused screen to determine whether it's a forward pass or not, allowing for some discretion, but 5m. is taking the pish.Quote from: Nanderson on September 24, 2023, 07:21:38 PMRelative velocity. They'll look at the players hands as they release the ball to see if angling forward or backwards.Quote from: Rudi on September 24, 2023, 04:49:28 PMThe whining from SA about 11 points missed. 2 kicks from inside their own half, one of which hit the post, that lead directly to a 5 pointer. The try had a pass that was 5M forward, but apparently not forward. The lineout 1M apart rule was never policed. SA should have got a penalty towards the end of the game that wasn't given. Cian Healy is a huge loss, as Porter has to play at least 75mins per game, as Kilcoyne is a huge weak link. Bundee playing the rugby of his life.I was reading the rules on a forward pass and as long as it comes out of the passers hands backwards the momentum of someone running forward can still cause the ball t drift forward. Seems to me like its very hard to ref and tbh they are probably just guessing what way it came out of the passers hands by the speed that they are running at.

I fancy an aul whiskey myself tonight
Quote from: illdecide on September 04, 2023, 10:57:23 AMHe plays centre half and has done for the most part of his career. Aside from his good play, he had many naive bombscare defensive incidents which some of them directly led to 4 or 5 gilt edged chances for Rangers. No central defender in the world of football should receive motm for that display. It is a travesty of football common sense. Just because Rangers didn't capitalise on his gifts, by some weird logic that means his defensive blunders don't count, just his good deeds.Quote from: Applesisapples on September 04, 2023, 09:42:34 AM
Scales is not a centre half, when he played previously it was always on the wing and in my view played reasonably well. Did well yesterday out of position.
He normally plays either LB of LHS of defense, either way his lack of pace is real concern. I'd hoped with the Irish connection he'd make it at Celtic and I still hope he can but on the eye test so far he won't.
Quote from: Itchy on September 03, 2023, 04:31:40 PMAnd if Rangers hadn't mucked up all their chances and romped home scoring 3 or 4 with Ibrox going ballistic, how would Scales' exact same performance have rated in that context? He's at a premium age for a maturing CH, we'll see how he progresses in the next few weeks.Quote from: Main Street on September 03, 2023, 02:12:35 PMQuote from: Itchy on September 03, 2023, 01:32:31 PMJohnston is fine but bombscare defending from the CHs.
It'll be a serious indictment of Rangers if they can't score against this defence. At least Taylor going off
Apart from the goal, both sides couldn't hit a barn door all game, thought Celtic at times looked very good in the 1st half
Before the game I thought a draw would be an achievement but to get all three points is priceless.
I thought Scales was pretty good but other CH and left back were hopeless. Wasn't impressed with any of subs put on either, Rangers got even more joy after they came on
