Frimpong and Rogic for Elhamed and the suspended Christie.
Frimpong wasn’t registered for the Europa League but has been excellent in his two appearances to date, admittedly a gentle enough introduction to first team football at home to Partick Thistle and Ross County. A different test away from home to these hammer throwers.
We lost at Livingston after winning at home in the Europa League a few weeks ago so we’ve been forewarned. Maybe we could have made at least one other change - we looked collectively off the pace in that previous defeat. Lennon says we’ve been studying quick turnaround games to identify patterns and to see if there’s anything that can be changed to the preparation to benefit us.
You can be sure Aberdeen will be direct, physical and hardworking so Celtic better be ready for it. The likes of Jullien totally lost his composure against Livingston.
It would be a remarkable result in most leagues to go to the home of a side who finished 4th last season and 2nd in the 4 seasons before that and have them routed 0-4 by half time. Aberdeen are also the third most successful Scottish league club, their 4 league titles admittedly a little bit behind the 50 that Glasgow Celtic in second place on the roll of honour have won.
Was that a remarkable result for 9 in a row chasing Glasgow Celtic today or more indicative of a Mickey Mouse league?
Four different winners of the EPL in the past 8 seasons. Likely to be 5 from 9 with Liverpool going to win the title this season.
You’re big into the Mickey Mouse one team leagues. Glasgow Celtic on the cusp of 9 in a row in Scotland, which will be a third 9 in a row in just over half a century in the Scotland league and Juventus on the cusp of 9 in a row in Italy. Do you not like competitive soccer as opposed to the Harlem Globetrotters exhibition type stuff that is the Scottish and Italian leagues?
I asked the question was it a remarkable result for 9 in a row chasing Glasgow Celtic or more indicative of a Mickey Mouse league? You’re the one that went off on a tangent about the EPL on an Aberdeen v Glasgow Celtic thread claiming that a league which this season will produce a 5th different winner in 9 seasons and last season provided all four finalists in the two premier European competitions was a Mickey Mouse league. Here’s what I said.
