Celtic v Dundee, Saturday 16th September at Celtic Park, 3pm kickoff

Another poor first half but much improvement in the second. Everything was too slow until Hatate came on then it seemed like we pressed the fast forward button. Not sure how much longer the Turnbull experiment can continue, he slows the whole team down. Good debut by Nat Philips, hopefully fit for Tuesday and Hatate must start in Rotterdam. O'Riley or Maeda MOTM for me, although all defenders also played well. Kyogo's shoulder is a worry
I've been saying the same about Turnbull since last season and even took pelters for my opinion from a fellow Noiser.

He hasn't got the dig, shirks tackles and doesn't move the ball forward quickly enough resulting in the whole game being played at a pace that's better suited to walking football. Hopefully the appearance of Reo will have opened BR's eyes but then again maybe it won't as he seems to have a Turnbull crush.

I was in post match media conference with the hacks today, interesting listening to them and how they work. Asked Brendan about Reo Hatate's reception from the support and how special a player he is the asked Callum McGregor about the importance of the Celtic support sticking with the team today when Dundee were frustrating us in the first half. Just me wished both of them the best of luck for Tuesday night.

Dundee manager was praising young Owen Beck their stand out left back on loan from Liverpool. I wrote an article on The Celtic Star a week ago about this boy and how he could solve our left back woes, and saying should pay particular attention to him today, thought he was outstanding as did his manager.

His great uncle is Liverpool legend Ian Rush.
 
My first chance to see the hoops under Rodgers today was really looking forward to it.
Massive thanks and respect to the ticket office staff for helping with tickets a few weeks back.
From what I saw today we've a lot to work on which may sound harsh given we won 3-0 but before the penalty I thought Dundee were handling us pretty well and putting some decent moves together , had chances.
Still, a win is a win is a win did Philips go off for fitness reasons?
Hatate and Palma's intro changed the atmosphere and suddenly we looked like Celtic 2nd half.
Not bad but can do better even if that sounds harsh I'm talking champions league level.
Top of the table good 3 pts decent Dundee performance deserves credit. HH
 
Players still getting to know each other, but the signs are encouraging, not getting too far ahead of myself in regards to Europe, the CL is a tough nut to crack, but at least we made the group stages, win the league again this season, and we're in again, and the cash will be welcome to bolster the team HH
 
Welcome Celticfish: you've made a good choice, The Noise is definitely the plaice to be. Can I have a guess as to your favourite player....Liam Scales perhaps ? Or what about the legendary Steve Guppy ? Even further back in history to a player who played for Glasgow's other big club from down Shawfield way ...Harry Haddock ?

Seriously though, you'll find we enjoy a bit of banter which sometimes raises the temper slightly; just don't be lured into taking the bait. And never perch on the fence.

The one thing we all share though, is the passionate hope that we keep on winning...and don't flounder.

Ano, ano, am away noo !
