***Official Celtic v Hearts Match Thread (not the final)***

Recommended Posts

Somebody might as well start one.

 

I've got no interest in this match and I hope we play it like a training game. A mix of first-teamers, reserves and young guys for a 2-0 defeat, I'll guess.

Phew 😅 thought this was the cup final

match thread, got to be Sarah O for that one please 😁. Now onto this one, seen the headline in the evening hobo that petkov is in contention for a start. Hoping that we field a weakened team and they pricks have a few 1st teamers that we can kick the shit out of.

Not vaguely interested.  Don't even know when it's being played.

I'll be travelling through to this game, and would hope we use it to try and learn something either about ourselves or the opposition (or preferably both) in preparation for next weekend. But in all honesty I haven't got a clue what I'm going to witness game wise, but I'm not sure if there is any benefit to be gained from turning up and doing nothing.

We have to give Vanacek at least a half up front with Uche possibly out for the final surely. Otherwise our cup final striking options are back to Steven McLean!

 

Hopefully McPhee and co are cooking up some new set piece moves for the final, maybe with a few pretendy new ones in this game to make Lennon earn his corn.

I have no idea idea who's fit and who's not anymore so this will be wildly wrong but something like:

 

Doyle

 

Souttar

Dikamona

Shaugnessy

 

Brandon

Bozanic

Cochrane

C Smith

Burns

 

Edwards

 

Vanecek

 

just to get through this and hope Souttar doesn't break. Hickey, Petkov, Hamilton and others on the bench. 3-0.

See the usual idiots up in arms as there will be a guard of honour for the Celtic players. Apparently this is budges fault going by the usual wacko hertz lot.

 

Rather incredible. Literally anything to have a pop at her.

Have very little interest in this match. Would be happy to see Levein put a bunch of kids out. Nothing game no need to risk anyone important ahead of the cup final. 

 

What i would put out:

Mason

Brandon Hamilton Dikamona Hickey

Wighton Edwards Petkov C.Smith Burns

Vanecek

 

i know its crazy the unlikeliest to play out of that is Vanecek. 

 

What i I think Levein will put out:

Doyle

Brandon Dikamona Shaughnessey Burns

Cochrane Bozanic

Clare Edwards Djoum

MacLean

 

Celtic to take 4 or 5 off us and I don’t care as its next week that matters

Will be astonished if Vanacek plays.  For whatever reason I think Craigy has written him off completely.

 

Essentially a reserve game in front of what I suspect will be played in front of a crowd of around 20,000 regardless of the official figure.

 

Craig Gordon's farewell game for them before he comes home?

I'm hoping that none of the Cup final starting 11 appear tomorrow, to hell with the result. I'd like to see Burns in midfield  (I don't think he'll start in the Final) with Vanacek starting up front with Wighton, Hickey and Petkov also to play.

Don't think anyone really cares, on the other hand our GD may look even more embarrassing.

Debut 4

Was a tough watch with a second string last week and will probably be again. 

 

Hope the youthful,  carefree side to the team gives us fight and maybe a bit football.

 

Confidence doesn’t look high just now and throwing a few youngsters into a game(albeit a glorified friendly)  v Celtic at Parkhead on a day of celebration for them is a big gamble. 

 

I think it highlights the lack of trusted, experienced options we have in the squad. 

 

Heres hoping we come away with a bit pride in performance.

Because it gives you another stick to beat the club and manager with. 

 

I'd take an absolute trouncing today if we could sneak a one nil.win next week.

Play kids, and cast out reserves. Injure their top players.

That vile club and their blue mirror image have been shafting all the other clubs for decades, signing players and benching them, influencing refs, bullying the others regards TV rights etc.

In that context, it's divine retribution to injure them, not cheating.

Injure them.

Surely even Levein wouldn't give Martin one last appearance. Also just realised hes still under contract for next season

Yeah. It's hard to find decent supporters these days.

 

But interesting in terms of teams. Connor Smith, Aaron Hickey could start. There was talk of now 16 year old Karamoko Dembele for Celtic but doubt it though he has played for reserves. 

 

Avoid red cards and injuries.

Even though he has a year to run surely we can get rid of with a negotiated pay off with just a year to go.

We could get pumped 7-0 and I wouldn’t bat an eyelid tbh. The line-up for both teams will be nothing like the final and the game will have zero impact. Most pointless game of the season. Might watch it, might not. All about the 25th.

Thought we might as well get him doing something for his money. Yeah still under contract next season, we seem to get too many players who come in and make no impression. I know all teams have players who don't work out but I think we are worse than most in this respect.

You wouldn't bat an eyelid if we suffered the equal biggest defeat in the club's history. Really?

If we were playing a full team then aye, but we’re not going to play anywhere near a full team.
