The next 8 days sees the hoops battling on 3 fronts with the league cup tie against Hearts wed night 28 th Oct first up coming off the back of a solid 5-0 win against Dundee Utd at the weekend, Hearts always present a tough challenge as the earlier season league game proved, Robbie Neilsons side will need to be wary of a Celtic team who are still hurting a bit after losing in Norway..
It was evident against Dundee Utd Celtic ment business and bad boy kris Commons smashed home 2 goals,there was a no mercy approach from the hoops, no doubt the criticism they received after the Molda game fired them up , now 4 points clear in the league a 9 point swing has dislodged Aberdeen who were 5 points ahead only a mere month ago, so on Saturday the game against Aberdeen is massive..
Will all Celtics good work go to waste , hopefully not…. a win would send a huge message to the club from the granite city , a 7 point lead at any stage in this league is a strong one and If Celtic are on it like against Dundee utd , the Dons could be in trouble of course the flip side of that is a loss and the gap cut to 1 , I’m confident we will win both the cup tie and the Aberdeen game ,and I think Celtic will be to strong for a young Hearts side still finding its feet…so I’m going 3-1 Celtic..in the cup tie..
And against Aberdeen a 2-1 victory in a tight game ,the final part of the trio of games has us playing Molde in the Europa league return at parkhead Thurs 5th Nov the game is huge all 3 are important in the career of Ronnie Deila as manager because most fans have already made up there mind about the guy, the only thing that could possibly change the doubters minds is firstly 3 good wins , especially in the Europa league game…
Most Celtic fans seem to crave European football , so no matter what he does in domestic football Europe will always dictate how he’s seen as a manager , I literally got ripped a new arse in a previous post for backing the manager and downplaying the importance of Europe , a silly mistake to make but an honest one , nevertheless we move on football is about opinions and my stance remains the same Ronnie Deila and the team can turn things around , part one of that juncture is tomorrow evening….
Oh and my prediction for the Molde game is 3-0 Celtic , bold you might think but Celtic at home in Europe il back them every time , a week on Thurs we could be looking at an entirely different picture , lets project…. a semi final spot in the league cup , 7 points clear in the league and 5 points in the Europa league which would at least move us of the bottom of the group table and who knows if Ajax beat fenerbache tighten the group right up , I’m positive all 3 objectives can be achieved…
We as Celtic fans have to stay strong and focused, I was guilty of falling out with some fans because of a post I made , I don’t want to be arguing with fellow fans on social media I’d rather opinions were respected from all parties, it’s what makes Celtic fans unique and sets us apart from the rest , we move forward as one the Celtic family HH and God bless till
next time …….
