  1. They are offering PPV. https://www.celticfc.com/news/2021/october/22/streamdigital-pay-per-view-available-for-celtic-v-st-johnstone/ Obviously, Saints actually confirming if it was on Saints TV could help you out here but that would probably be expecting too much.
  2. The only reason to take Hendry back in January would be to upset Tommy Wright.
  3. Also remember the chant from Fir Park that has always stuck with me, to the tune of Oh Ah Cantona... "Who needs Cantona, when we've got Billy Dodds..." Not sure if that was the first airing of it but it was certainly the last!
  4. It was the penultimate game in 1994 where Rangers fucked about with their team and Killie beat them. Given all we've achieved, I'd rank playing a weakened team against Celtic in a close title race as high on the things I want to see! Remember that final day at Fir Park, John Inglis scoring what was possibly one of only two goals for us (the other in a win at a Tannadice) and the false rumours that kept filtering through about scorelines elsewhere. The second last weekend at Rugby Park in 1999 a much happier occasion. Don't think it was our best performance ever from memory and a really scrappy goal but suspect it was a huge psychological blow to Killie given they could have wrapped it up that day and still had to travel to Ibrox.
  5. Killie had Hibs on the last day but Ally Mitchell scored in the last minute the week before for them to win at Ibrox, which was obviously a killer for us. We'd been a point behind going into penultimate weekend, thinking a win over Motherwell would put us in box seat if Killie dropped points against Hibs on final day. We came from behind twice to do that but then Mitchell scored. Funny for it to be so close between two teams for that Euro spot in consecutive seasons. Of course, Killie were back at Ibrox on final day a year later and again had a one point advantage. The only drew that time round and we obviously beat Dundee. As good a finish to the season as that was for us, we did benefit from Killie only picking up 3 points from their final 5 games. One of the great days at McDiarmid that May afternoon.
  6. The 1998 win (Callum Davidson's last game) was our first home win over them since 1970 (we won at Ibrox a few months later as part of a league double against them). Other than the first season at McDiarmid - where we got two draws - we'd never really laid a glove on them, so that was a huge afternoon. @RandomGuy. will no doubt tell me if I'm mistaken but I'm sure Leigh Jenkinson tormented their right back (Porrini?) when he came on for Davidson and Preston dropped to left back. We've subsequently beaten them at home another three times, the two mentioned above plus the 3-1 win in April 1999, which is probably my favourite of the victories. Ironically, we've won at Ibrox as many times over the same period of time. Celtic hated playing at McDiarmid in that first decade and we won more games (6) between the sides than they did. They lost on their very first visit and three times in a row between 1997 and 1999. Only beaten them twice at home since then though disappointingly. Been fortunate enough to be at all three wins at Celtic Park since 1998. Two midweek evening matches with probably double-figure supports and a win out of nowhere at the start of 2011/12. Ironically, again, I've missed two of the rare draws we've had there, not including last season obviously.
  7. I have the same problem. At the Rangers game, I tried switching to 3G from 4G and could use FlashScore at least. Might be worth a try.
  8. I thought I had a list of all-time top division scorers (certainly post-WWII) but can't find it. Liam Craig places well in all-time (all comps) scorers though: 140: John Brogan 116: Ian Rodger 114: Henry Hall 105: Paddy Buckley 85: Andy McCall 82: George O'Boyle 79: Roddy Grant 70: Joe Carr, Harry Ferguson, Gordon Whitelaw 67: Jimmy Munro 61: Liam Craig
  9. Middleton was vital for us in the closing weeks of last season, he made huge contributions in some of our most important games but that's all they were, contributions. Remember that the ones against County and St Mirren both came from the bench. I think a game like yesterday needed the two natural strikers, which makes it all the more strange we've just gone and left ourselves with only two in the squad. His pace will have its part to play but I think he'll be in-and-out of the team all season. It's a squad game though.
  10. I think you have to do the basics that the manager wants to get in his team. We saw it last season with Melamed. Getting up to speed doesn't necessarily refer to fitness but learning what is required of a forward in this team. Must be hard for foreign guys that maybe aren't used to being expected to press so much. Personally I'd try to encourage Vertainen along (if what suggested above is the case) by involving him more but then CD is the manager and I'm sharing anecdotes about the parents of players at Celtic Park.
  11. Good result clearly and a good performance up to the point that the job was done. Thought having two natural strikers made a big difference (and both played pretty well) and the first goal comes from a centre back stepping out, which has been missing this season. Other positives too, the end product from O'Halloran and Crawford's attacking drove before he was subbed. Ambrose continues to impress. Expected a lot more from Dundee.
  12. I think at the planning stage, it was thought this would make it easier to find your seat. The early tickets would have your block colour on them as well. It doesn't bother me as much as it bothers others.
  13. I actually have a Martin Keown anecdote from Celtic Park. @Zamora Fan Was queuing to get in his wife had her handbag searched. They found a bottle of water and told her she couldn't take it in. Imagine the most confused/incredulous look you can and that was Martin's face. He took a huge swig then dumped it in a bin.
  14. I saw Clive Smith's dad offering Saints fans out for a fight in the concourse at Celtic Park. Fact for the day.
  15. Depending on the odds, could definitely be worth a flutter. If he doesn't play with McCart, Gordon and Brown out and Kerr now away, then when will he?
