  1. Celtic in Europe - 17/18

    Brendan doesn’t need centre halves he needs a goalie that can kick a baw Absolutely pathetic tonight summed up by that Dembele dive there [emoji1]

    Agree but it’s similar to McCall labelling Rangers as favourites, that is also a tactic used to take pressure off and put it on the other team all the time. My point is, no manager or team will be saying this kind of stuff to their team or in pre match speeches. No manager. Every manager will send their team out believing they can get a result. If anyone believes otherwise then that’s their opinion but I’ll never be convinced that that is the case. Hughes comment was made in hindsight looking back to his own team playing a team that had a massive financial advantage over them. It wouldn’t have been what he was saying to his players or part of his pre game attitude. No chance.

    No, worse than the old Rangers. Rangers 2012. Also, before the play off game did Barraclough not say everyone wants Rangers in the top flight.

    Maybe they scores have come about because Rangers were absolutely pish (in comparison to what they used to be) at the time of the 6-1 and slightly less pish in the LC semi. I fancied Motherwell to beat them in the LC. Sure a lot of people did. McCall might be saying they were favourites to the press but I’m guessing he would be saying a completely different thing to his team behind closed doors....
  5. Arbroath fans behind the goal after last time. Away crowd be down on last time too I’m guessing. Probably prefer that.

    Where are you seeing what evidence was or wasn’t presented in the trial?
  7. Sportsound Watch 14/15

    I disagree. I think you’re just having a go for the sake of it to be honest. No idea how you’ve come to that conclusion. The budget difference between the 2 would’ve been ridiculous. If there was a cup game in England where an EPL team played another with a budget 20 times the size of a lower league team people would say the same. It doesn’t mean that managers and players will go into games not believing they can win. They’ll go into it giving the other side respect because they are better, they’ll probably lose because the other side is better, not just because the other side just happens to be Celtic or Rangers. If you were playing a game yourself you’d think exactly the same. You’d be slightly more nervous and a wee bit more wary if you were playing a team that was better than you were. Same thing happens when Celtic mix it with the best teams when they’re in Europe. Their game changes because the opposition are better in the same way a Falkirk teams game would change from playing against an ICT or Motherwell to a game against Rangers. I’ll watch Arbroath scud some teams in the league this year and then go to Stark’s on Saturday playing slightly different too and showing them more respect than what we would show a Stranraer. It happens at every single level of football. Obviously the financial gap isn’t the same. As for the last bit, that’s Aberdeen, arguably the third force in Scottish football and I could be wrong but at that time the financial gap between the 2 would’ve been nowhere near as big. Maybe if he was managing Falkirk 10 year ago he’d have a similar opinion to Hughes. I don’t think the gaps as big now as it was in the early 2000s to be fair. Celtic and Rangers especially aren’t anywhere near as good as they used to be in my opinion. ETA: this is also something that he is saying in hindsight. I don’t imagine this is something he (or any other manager) would’ve been saying in his pre match speech.

    I have heard exactly the same things I’m sure everyone has. Easy thing to believe too but he talks about that in his interview and dismisses it. He’s obviously going to make himself sound better I know but he seems genuine and does talk about going out too and admits he made some mistakes himself. I don’t get the impression that he is that kind of guy. Not saying overall his time with Charlton and Cardiff were brilliant but he did have a few really good runs where he was scoring and playing very well. If Cardiff never had a transfer embargo they would’ve bought him I’m sure. Followed him really closely since that goal v Barca really thought he’d push on and be a good International. Used to have a look at what fans were saying about him and look out for his goals etc. There’s a cracker of a video of him keeping the ball in the corner by himself at The Valley v Forest I think, good 2-3 minutes. I don’t know where he’ll end up Dee Man but I hope he does well for himself, think he’s got a lot of potential if he got himself fit and playing regularly. Could still be Scotland player in my opinion. Anyway sorry for derailing your thread. I’ll move over and let RandomGuy and HappyAccie back in so things can get back to normal. [emoji4]

    Pish This works both ways too. When Celtic are scooshing league title after league title and winning cups fans of other clubs rightly point out that that’s what they should be doing because their budget is x times that of everyone else’s. That was the same situation for a Falkirk manager back when Rangers were spending x amount the times of them year after year. Yet you’re saying that a manager pointing that out is a bad thing. You know what he means, do you think being a realist and admitting that made him and his team want to win any less?

    Bonner is the worst by a country mile it’s not even close.
  11. Sportsound Watch 14/15

    You know what he was meaning. Fans feel the same way too so I’m not sure why you see it as a problem. This error against Sevco you’re talking about, I’m guessing that it has absolutely f**k all to do with clubs having that attitude and more to do with the fact that Sevco aren’t absolutely pish anymore like they have been in recent seasons.
  12. All things Dundee FC

    This isn’t true. Listen to Si Ferry’s interview with him, explains what happened. He’s a very good player fit, had brilliant spells with Charlton and Cardiff recently. Fans loved him there. Not so great at Hearts but talks about that in the podcast too. Still like someone’s mentioned not really relevant for Dundee.
  13. I think you’ve described it better there. I did indeed say we should beat Berwick comfortably before we played them in the cup... however we are a division above them. Ourselves and Raith Rovers both have a pretty similar record since the turn of the year playing the same teams as each other. I suppose you could look at it in a budget sense but that would mean that you should really be winning 32 games a season which isn’t realistic. Even though we have a bigger budget than other teams in this league I don’t necessarily think that means we should be beating them, should rightly be favourites though. Way I see it anyway. Dunno if that’s good or bad news about Vaughan, shows the attacking strength and options you have if you don’t need to be playing him upfront. [emoji1]

    Because we have other things to be doing it isn’t our job, we’re the consumers of the product. It’s not up to the fans to come up with ideas, if people want to put their opinion forward then they’re welcome too but if others don’t then that’s their choice and a perfectly reasonable stance to take. People are being presented with an idea and giving their reactions to it as supporters. It’s not a forum of negativity, it’s just a negative reaction to what is in my opinion a terrible proposal.

    It would save them a lot of bother anyway. If Love genuinely thinks he’s being slandered here then this will surely carry on and on. If not then I’d assume he just knows he’s in the wrong.
