If we produce stats similar to this I will say we are totally jinxed and lightening will well and truly have struck twice.

How the fuck did they calculate possession?

there is absolutely no fucking way it was 50/50

Think they must have included all the time wasting at goal kicks, free kicks and throw ins, that is worth 20 minutes alone.

On that note, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a keeper go down within cramp!

Don't forget sitting on their arse or rolling about on the ground for 5 mins.

If we don’t qualify Thursday, we’ll drop points against both Killie & Hibs. I think the team would be shellshocked and it could very well derail the season.

We’ve failed in our last 2 challenges for various reasons, need to amend that on Thursday

We don't want a champs league drop out, so winning at Ibrox is very important if we want to give ourselfs a real chance of getting to the last  16.  

Can still get a champions league drop out by finishing top. 8 teams drop out, 4 that drop out with the highest points total are seeded. Other 4 are not. All the europa league group winners are seeded and the second place teams are not. Win our group on Thursday and it means we’re at home in the second leg.

No. Although you get the feeling that a few folks want to see the Gers fail so they can say I told you so.

well make light work of young boy’s on Thursday. And the season has got a long way to go yet. celtic can’t get away with playing that bad and still winning on a regular basis and we just have to be ready to take advantage

I reckon we will qualify on Thursday but guaranteed we will be at least 5 points behind them come full time on the 29th.

Considering the fixtures we have I would accept being 5 points behind(with a game in hand) at FT on the 29th.

December was always going to be difficult and I knew we would not come through it without some bad results, but we have failed to win 2 games in a row, it's not a great start. We can't afford to drop points against Motherwell, Hibs and Killie and if the scum win the 4 league games like I expect, we can't lose on the 29th either.

10 points from 12 required! Tough ask IMO.

Europa League is irrelevant really. I would actually like to have at least two weekends in the new year where we haven’t played on a Thursday but the taigs have.  The league is all that matters.

Enough of the negativity, I think we will win on Thursday to top a group containing some cracking European names. Just get to the next celtic game with the gap at 2 (or 5 allowing for their extra game) and have the chance to strike back. If we play like yesterday we can win that match.  Even a draw would be decent because the tough fixtures flip to them in Jan

We're at ibrox, we'll qualify no problem 

there's absolutely no way we'll get 6 points from hibs and Motherwell away

There's a very decent chance we will. And of we do we will be in a great position to take advantage when they hit Jan and have a load of away matches

It’s a funny one. Lots of people have said Europe is a sideshow, a distraction, but I’m pretty sure they’d be very angry if we went out.

I don’t know - if going out means we have a better  chance of winning the league then it isn’t such a bad thing, but I want to win everything we are in, so hope we can get at least the point we need. However, I think Gerrard really has to start rotating the squad more, at least in Europe.

We have three majors chances to atone for yesterday, the cup, the league and the Europe run. Let’s hope we can pick ourselves up and kick on.

Considering we’ve not won a real trophy in 8 year it’s massive

You're correct mate however anyone referencing 8 years is a little silly. There's not very much we could have done about it for a large period of that time.

It's the same with those calling Tav a loser and a failure. Technically correct but how many chances has he and the team really had and how many times have our squad been good enough? 

We have failed recently though and it hurts like fuck but I do think we're as close as we've ever been. We need to win something. It's the only resolution.

We will score of that I'm confident. What I'm not confident in, is our error prone defence. Barisic excepted of course.

The defence play better in Europe where the game is slower and more technical. We’ve only conceded one goal in six games at home in europe this season.
