Scottish Premier Celtic

comment on the article

Now they can clearly see that the side is in dire need of reinforcments at the back & upfront, this should force their hand in coughing up in the future transfer windows!

Well done Falkirk you wanted it more & you totally deserved what you got out of the game!

Caldwell McManus Fortune Samaras are horrific!! McDonald fair play to him has been shocking this season came up trumps when he came on but still dosnt make up for his season so far! McGeady McCourt N'Guemo Robson Fox Hinkel wernt in it at all!!!

Where to go from here, How much is Mowbray to blame???

For a support who are so easily offended by others who sing of historical events, and who have raised, on their behalf questions in parliment, in relation to this, I find this attitude, and attempted justification nigh on a joke.
The old adage people in glass houses comes to mind.
These Celtic supporters do their club no credit at all, but do they care I doubt it, they are to entrenched in their own little world, to imagine the effect this sort of action has on the opinion of ordinary people in relation to Celtic Football Club.
I hope they are proud.

Correct it was yours and everyone knew it was. Stop all this nonsense about being so hard done by in Ireland by the British Army. They dealt with terrorists, on both sides. Pathetic to try to excuse not observing a minute's silence. Clear enough for you?

regarding the minutes silence they were within their rights not to observe it. personally i don't think their should have been a minutes silence, up until 2 years ago i don't recall having one every november so what has changed? that being said the people who did disrupt it i have no respect for, if you can't stay quiet for 60 seconds then just stay away.

regarding orangebeckrfc1 the reason celtic fans causing trouble is not reported as often as you lot is quite simple. we don't. i was in hamburg where me and around a thousand others missed 20-30 minutes of the game as we were outside with only one turnstile open, riot police with batons and dogs and were being searched before allowed entry. yes there was shouts of complaints but not a single one of us took it upon ourselves to grab the nearest thing to throw at them.

There is a huge difference between not observing it and openly disrespecting and disrupting it.

Freedom of choice would entitle to me to laugh at a child drowning, an old lady taking a heart attack or disrupting a funeral, it would even entitle me to travel to Ireland and disrupt a minutes silence for Aiden McAnespie.

I appreciate your not defending them and that you dont agree with them but I am not convinced by the "freedom of choice" argument.

Getting back to football, I thoughy Celtics perfomance at Falkrik was pretty apauling. Im a Rangers fan and at time this season we havent performed any better. Both sides of the old firm are very very very poor this season. For Tony M to pay 3.5 for Fortune was a ridiculous move. I also don't think that he is the right man to take Celtic forward. Given the current financial situation I very much doubt he is going to be given 20-30m in January to sign new players, so to publicly belittle the cetlic players and say he needs up to 10 new players is only going to go against him.

I would be interested to know, would any Celtic fans now rather have Tony M in charge od their team or Gordan Strachen? Were I a celtic fan I would certainly say the later.

He didnt claim to play with open attacking flair, which celtic currently dont(or rangers), but at least he was getting results.

Would be interested to know your thoughts given the stick strachen got during his time in charge.

Dont agree with article. Falkirk deserved to win. For an OF fan to say that Falkirk deserved a draw is just the typical thought process of an OF fan who believes their team should win by showing up as its their god divine right.

Kingrety : I am as unhappy as most with TM so far, but was mighty relieved when Strachan left, so I would not have him back. TM is supposed to be more of a football purist, which I like, but we need to see more of it on the park WITH good results. Personally I think he appears in over his head and he seems very unconvincing in interviews. I cant imagine him motivating a dressing room. On the other hand, I think he seems like a decent, principled man who deserves at least some more time to get it together.

Due to censorship by the site I am unable to respond to other comments made by previous contributors. Disappointing as some were quite interesting.
