The Ange Revolution

Ange knows that the more you have the ball and the more you are in the other half and the more you shoot the more you score. Simple truisms. The hardest games to win are when the opposition pack the defences and play a 5-5 formation. We need wingers to get past the fullbacks and cross the ball in low. We don't have too many tall forwards, We have to shoot on site from 20 yards or so and about 50% get deflected. At corners we need to score more. Our CB's are a match for any defence. We need some variety, short, long, incurling, outside the box. Ange know that the game lasts for 95 minutes and there must be no petrol left in the tank.

First off, let me say I'm as delighted as any of you good folk at this juncture on our road back to the summit. Ange has without doubt, so far, done an unbelievable job. But my usual cautious inner self is telling me not to get too carried away.....yet.
First trophy on the sideboard: still in touching distance at the top. It's probably more than most of us expected at this stage. However, with progress comes expectation. We are approaching a very critical time as far as this season is concerned. Crunch time, if you like !

Six points adrift isn't insurmountable, but only if we win all our games before meeting the tribute act....and then beat them. We have, thankfully for a change, been very active in the transfer market. Hopefully the fact that our signings are obviously not " works in progress" will help us take the next step; everything depends on those signings delivering the level we are looking for.

One thing which definitely has been laid to rest is the question of who makes the call when it comes to signing players. Ange has very obviously got full control of those decisions. Thank goodness for that too.

Ange has been compared to Big Jock by many, and I've already said I understand why, but I tend to agree with Hoopy; it's way too early for those kind of comparisons. We're allowed to live in hope though. I think most of you know that I was less than optimistic regarding this season, but I actually do believe we are in a title race. We simply must reverse the trend of losing to what"s their name ?

Very true Frank, but there's a completely different attitude around this group of players compared to last season.
Also a far higher disire to succeed with the club than of using it for personal gain, which we have had to endure for to long.
Every player seems to have bought into Ange vision for the club in building something very special for the club.
Brilliant ingredients to bring about much success, and although it has already landed 1 trophy, I strongly believe that this is only the start of what can and hopefully be achieved still.
I understand the causious approach but after the shit we had to put up with last season, then nothing wrong with showing our optomism for the future ahead.
Enough talking has been done and the plan goes into action now, and still remain very excited about how it all will unfold in the end this season, and totally relaxed about the coming seasons ahead, maybe I might have bought into the visions of Ange to much so, but the enjoyment he has bought to date, I will savour all the time it lasts and long may it continue still

You're posts always give me lift John, we're probably two different characters in some ways. I think it would be true to say we hope for the same result though. I've seen my share of false dawns, so maybe this has taught me not to get too far ahead of myself. Hope over fear always !

Daizen Maeda says his pace and high-energy style can bolster Celtic's title bid as he eyes a formidable partnership with compatriot Kyogo Furuhashi.

The Japanese forward, 24, has reunited with former Yokohama Marinos boss Ange Postecoglou in Glasgow in a triple deal with Yosuke Ideguchi and Reo Hatate.
They join Kyogo who has been a revelation since arriving last summer, scoring 16 times in 26 appearances.

"I'm extremely looking forward to playing with Kyogo," Maeda said.

"Both of us have similar speed as a strength and can apply pressure to the opposing team when it comes to attacking.

"My style of play is to put all my energy in to the games, so I can't wait to show that to the fans.

"The ultimate goal is to win the league. In order to do that, I need to score lots of goals so that's my focus."

Maeda - the J-League's top scorer last year with 23 goals - is thankful Postecoglou came back in for him after being rebuffed in the summer.

"I really admire his strong views and opinions," he said. "He is the kind of manager you want to follow and do your best with.

"Of course it was a choice in the summer I was aware of. But back then I really wanted to win [the title] with Yokohama.

"I wasn't able to do that, but am extremely happy to be here with Celtic now."

COYBIG..... 🍀

Given we were told we would be lucky to finish in the top 6 this year I think the manager has performed miracles.
Slippy saw the writing on the wall and fled first chance he got and it does seem a bit thin on the penalties even though he's obviously using his tactic of there's a sniper in the ground as soon as Villa get in the box.
There squad is getting weaker and that's without injuries and COVID hitting them .
I think we'll hit our stride and then from then on in it's only us getting stronger

I think we should be challenging in the Europa league at least last 8 for me

Oh and Eddie, thanks mate enjoy the championship

Id really like to know when Kyogo,jota etc are back :)
I think we have all seen that Ange keeps everybody guessing with returns from injury. He has been particularly quiet about Jota.Reading between the lines I think the bounce game yesterday indicates both are are still out and whilst Kyogo (if he is fit enough to travel)will be in Japan for the imposters game I don't think Jota is gonna be ready until after that game as the only comment made by Ange on Jota was his injury was significant.
