Massive game tonight and we go into it with a half fit striker and one fit centre back. I am worried

Celtic should have had Roberts signed already, its almost as if they would prefer a long run in the Europa Cup, they have the money, he wants to be there, sign him or get him on loan now!

I suspect it will be a loan and City will not sanction it until we are in CL.

Look everyone is entitled to their own opinion.  What I saw was a man who has suffered the most extreme abuse facing up to his haters saying you will not break me.  Its not as if he was blessing himself in front of them or giving them the two fingers or even throwing a load of verbal abuse back at them. After the goal he was saying how do you like that and after the final whistle he was saying give me all you have got. 

I appreciate what you are saying about expected conduct for a manager but at the same time I can fully understand his reaction - some people cower to bullies, some ignore them and others face up to them - such is the rich tapestry of life.  Yes the football authorities might have a say on it but at the same time I would not be criticizing him too strongly.

Ferguson etc might be criticized for such an action alright but none of them has had to endure what Neil Lennon has had to endure.  He was attacked in the street by two Ibrox season ticket holders who were passed down sentences FFS.  Yet even in this instance it was being portrayed as he brings this sort of stuff onto himself. 

You have to remember he was inciting those supporters on Saturday by his mere presence there.  One of the complaints was about him celebrating a goal along with the complaint about cupping his ears. 

I remember when Cantona went into the crowd - maybe a better comparison in terms of serious provocation but a much much much stronger reaction - at that time I felt I could understand why Cantona reacted in the way he did even though he was being paid handsomely. 

At the end of the day Lennon was getting serious verbal abuse after years of serious verbal and physical abuse.  If he wants to cup his ears to say yeah give me all you have got because you know what you will not put me down then too bad if those in the same stand find that to be unpalatable.

Yeah he would be far better taking all their shite, all the intimidation, all the stuff they vent onto him to deal with their own insecurities and using it to remind himself not to make eye contact, keep the head down, do not celebrate his team goals.

In fact when he is likely to be facing that he would be better taking the day off and letting the assistant take the team. The last thing he wants to be doing is show any sort of defiance against the like of what wishes to make his life hell.

If he had not acted in that way they would no doubt have warmed to him and started to lay off him.

I see Neil has hurt some psychopaths feelings - ah well, like tying a scarf to a goal post, cupping your ears is hardly the worst reaction to 90 mins+ of bile.

That said I read the club 1872 (no laughing at the back) statement last night and my reaction was 'wow'.

Yeah not sure what issue is. My preference would be championships aligned with leagues anyway.

Just glad Neil went there, faced up to his haters and came away with a smile.

Whatever is the world coming to?

Poor form alright.  I wonder is that the bar at the back of the main stand where a match ticket gains you entry.

Those Warsaw fans are pure white nationalist knackers. We shouldn't be giving them attention here.

Preying on the past for anger and resentment only reminds me of the worst excesses of both sides in the north.

Yeah a lot more convenient for some to forget history......

You don't forget, you move the fúck on.

The Germans who are alive now had nothing to do with anyone being killed anywhere during WW2, just as the kids of nationalists from the 70's don't inherit their parents' sins. Don't praise things intended to sow division.

I just said it was an impressive tiffo.

Tough tough draw.They eliminated Legia Warsaw in the last round.Celtic have traditionally tended to rely on late heroics in the second leg home tie in this round in the past,that option isn't available.A major step up in performance from the Rosenborg games will be required to have any chance

Feeling a lot more confident now that Tony is saying it is going to be difficult.

Not sure of the full ins and puts of what happened with Aldergrove but is there any precedent here? I know Aghagallon were effectively relegated to Div 3 after getting points docked for not fielding. Different situation I appreciate but at the same time I would not like to see rules being applied for one team and not for another. Bit I stress I am only asking the question here as I do not know the rules that were broken or the associated punishment that is recorded against them.
