Successful Failure For Vintage Celtic — 3 Comments

  1. Bill’s analysis of the games is, as usual, spot-on ; our inability to score in the group games cost us dearly, yet as soon as we enter the knock-out stages (of the Plate) we not only continue to make chances but take most of them! Perhaps we were fitter than the opposition playing in the KO matches 4 & 5 as we certainly found more space and used it to create better chances than the earlier games (when long distance shooting was more prevalent and unsuccessful).
    Our win of the secondary competition was some consolation for our early exit of the main comp. As ever, post comp analysis and the all important re-hydration took place with the usual enthusiasm at HQ (The Lord Stamford, Stalybridge).

    • Any team with the inability to score will never get into the final rounds, so you have to look at your forwards chances to see why they are not scoring the goals. Long shots don’t usually work in this slower game, hard graft and better close shots will win you more games. Keep going Celtic, maybe one day we will play against you.

      • Your comments are spot on Paul. Although very sound defensively we realise we are poor in the strikers department and that’s what wins you games. What team do you play for Paul?
