The 270 minutes of Celtic in France, the keyboardists and the signing of the keys that will demoralize the support of the Rangers


« The 270 minutes of play in France are the first competitive games in many months. Winning, losing or drawing is just a brief bragging right. It’s time to experiment with new players and new tactics. We could even line up a completely different eleven in the second half.

“The most important thing is to have a team that can integrate perfectly into the team. With the injuries and suspensions that will eventually happen, we need to know what each team member is capable of. None of them are “thin” because some keyboard warriors casually choose to spit on their laptop.

“Neil Lennon is in the unenviable position of having to tell the big players that they are not on the team or on the bench while keeping them enthusiastic. This requires a cool head. Who is our best left and right rear? Central defenders and midfielders. Should we play one or two attackers and if so who? Which wingers? What is our best training and when should we change it? We could answer these questions this week, ”is the point of view of Fisiani, a well-known member of Celtic Noise.

Niall J, also from the parish, noted that with another player on the team ready to leave, as reported by The Celtic Star this morning, the number of club outings since the end of the season would be doubled.

“If Jack Hendry is going to Belgium as planned this week, then 10 players have left the club, but in most areas except central defense and the goalkeeper, the next generation is ready to move on. top speed.

“I agree Fisiani, it is above all about experimentation and having a couple of formations established at the time when the friendly matches are finished and dusted. Some young people will have chances this season and it is an exciting development. Who will step up will likely depend on their performance over the next two weeks.

“My only concern is that the players who have been out of the running and falling for so long could see the muscle injuries we have seen in the Bundesliga. Hopefully the extended training time will help counter this, ”said Niall.

On Saturday we brought a glimpse of the situation at Willie McStay’s Celtic Academy and it should be noted that with a leaner and meaner core before the young talented Celtic Academy contenders, the road to the first team might not not seem so distant and may offer encouragement and opportunity for Celtic to play and defeat the next generation of players like James Forrest, Callum McGregor and Kieran Tierney whose sale to Arsenal has brought Celtic a profit of £ 25 million on the development of an international player.

However, the goalkeeper position remains a priority and fingers are crossed so that Fraser Forster can arrive soon, preferably before having to face Paris Saint Germaine next week. The Wall is what is going to be necessary to close shop against the champions of France of free score who beat Le Havre – managed by the former unlucky Rangers Paul Le Guen – by nine goals to zero yesterday. Here are the highlights and that will give you an indication of the task ahead of Celtic next week.

As it stands, the only first goalkeeper ready for the club team is Scott Bain, who was third choice last season but has progressed in line with the future of Fraser Forster in the limbo and Craig Gordon leaving to join Hearts. Former Celtic goalkeeper Dorus de Vries said yesterday that Bain had never given up on Celtic, but in this probably the most important national season ever, he’s really an adequate replacement and the support will be much more relaxed – if this is even possible – on the realization of Ten-in-a-Row if and when the signature of Forster is confirmed.

And it won’t just be a major boost for Celtic support. It will be demoralizing for the support of the Rangers who are well aware of the importance of the great goalkeeper during a season and in particular in the big games that really matter – like the League Cup final last December . They still have nightmares about not breaking the wall in this particular Hampden game.

“There are only a few moments left before finding real football,” added Fisiani. “We made history last season by becoming the only Scottish team to win nine straight and make it twice. We are 180 minutes from a Quadruple Treble. This season is huge. I predict that we will be undefeated in Scotland by December 31. It’s going to be a great season. Bring it on. ”
