Dundee beat Celtic 5-1 circa 1980 and Aberdeen beat the Huns by the same a few years later. I think those may be the last instances of Scottish diddies beating an OF team by that sort of score. They've beaten each other and been done often enough in Europe, of course.

No chance of Mowbray going or being sacked. They've invested too much in him to let him go. They've allowed him to radically change the team and also have super duper Keane. To sack him or let him walk would mean their own resignation.

Even with only one champions league spot available for season 2011/12.
He will be lucky to even get a few months next season if this form continues.

Nope at no point in the two games against Ross County were we the better team. The better side won. We will have other chances.

Simply stating my opinion that Ross County were the better team over the two ties but St Mirren's result should give us hope in how to recover from a crushing defeat.

Not two different opinions is it:confused::rolleyes:

I think a simple 1-0 or maybe even 2-0 victory for St Mirren might not have been too damaging but I fully expect that to have been Mowbray's final game in charge.

There is no way that the Celtic fans will accept a 4-0 drubbing by St Mirren.

I think there will be a "mutual consent" statement in the morning.

Quoted on the Beeb as spouting this pish:

.. Mowbray suggested the success of Walter Smith's side was down to "negative" football.

"Rangers have been very consistent - they haven't lost four goals in any game," said Mowbray. "They set up differently - maybe that's the way to go. "Maybe it isn't a league for trying to force the game and be expansive - maybe it is a league for playing defensive, negative football and having quality up front to counter-attack."

:faf: What a tool! It's called playing to your strengths Tony! Sometimes the theory needs horsed oot the windae and you need to go against your views and pick the horses for courses route.

I have to agree with TM on this one

SPL teams do not play fancy football, most teams graft & battle for points where TM is trying to get them to pass the ball into the net

Maybe he should try spain if he want to try apply his fancy football philosophy cause it certanly wont ever work in the SPL

He'll be gone soon, although he should take Lawwell and Reid with him.

Will they bag him? Well if rumours are true then he had already agreed to go in May, but our board may just get rid of sooner when they see a mass of green seats on Saturday. Strangely, I'm actually looking forwarrd to going on Saturday now. :confused:

Anyway, the man is a buffoon and his team selection last night plus his interview afterwards were baffling. He actually looks as if he's having a nervous breakdown.

No really that hard to be honest, as its well deserved. Most tims would agree with me here.

I actually found last night a bit cathartic, in that it could be the nadir, the bottoming out, the Caley thistle moment when the board realise he has to go and also to make a decent appointment and concentrate on football manners as opposed to all manner of other distractions.

We've had a night like last night coming for some time now. The board will act, they're not daft. When a lynch mob of about 200 is at Celtic Park waiting on the team bus coming back (with Mowbray Out banners), then through self preservation, they'll act and bag him.

Paul Lambert, depsite what he says about not coming back to sCotland, his wife still lives in Renfrewshire. Actually heard he's been approached

Mark Hughes - maybe unrealistic, but he's out of work and I don't see many jobs (maybe Wets Ham) coming up soon.

Either that or some foreigner that no-one has really heard of, but has quietly done a job and built up a decent track record.

Someone on CelticMinded says that Curbishley has been sounded out and this guy is a close friend of John Hartson.

In my 40+ years of watching Hibs, Mowbray`s team was one of the most exciting teams to watch, it is hard to believe the lack of respect which is shown to him by some Hibs fans, his legacy has been a positive one, he brought certain players to prominence and they were eventually sold on to alleviate the huge debt that we had, we stopped training on public parks and now train at East Mains the envy of a lot of clubs and have a more professional approach as a consequence.
If Yogi is successful at Easter Road and he needs to find reasons to justify a move to a bigger club, all he has to do is read some of the derogatory and disrespectful threads about being thick and not being as articulate as Wenger or Jose.

Fair shout. But how long will it take for McGoo to see his opportunity and start giving interviews about how wonderful Celtc are. Or for Owen"show me the money" Coyle to start rabbitting about his boyhood love of the unwashed?

Over on Anysparechangenthat.com they look to favour Lambert or Mark Hughes. Since both of them would do a good job, I hope they have a total brainstorm and appoint McGoo.

McGhee the flip side of Mowbray, he is the greatest manager that never was, in his own mind of course, i`ve never seen anyone as egotistical or self centred as this guy ( sorry i forgot Souness). Laszlo will be waitng in the wings and the press and post match interviews will be interesting.:wink:

Over on Anysparechangenthat.com they look to favour Lambert or Mark Hughes. Since both of them would do a good job, I hope they have a total brainstorm and appoint McGoo.

More chance of me getting that gig than McGoo... think Coyle would be a non starter as wouldnt look good having three clubs in about 6 months on your CV....

Don't think Hughes would touch the job... personally I can't see past Lambert.

In my 40+ years of watching Hibs, Mowbray`s team was one of the most exciting teams to watch, it is hard to believe the lack of respect which is shown to him by some Hibs fans, his legacy has been a positive one, he brought certain players to prominence and they were eventually sold on to alleviate the huge debt that we had, we stopped training on public parks and now train at East Mains the envy of a lot of clubs and have a more professional approach as a consequence.
If Yogi is successful at Easter Road and he needs to find reasons to justify a move to a bigger club, all he has to do is read some of the derogatory and disrespectful threads about being thick and not being as articulate as Wenger or Jose.

Ooer, high horse alert:greengrin

Wholeheartedly agree with the bit in bold. However, he's (at least until lunchtime) the manager of Celtc and its not unreasonable to expect him to get a bit of stick on a Hibs board.

Fact is that what were minor eccentricities in his time at ER have expanded in to full-blown wackiness at Darkheid due to the job simply being too much for him. Going to six up top at 2-0 down is the sign of someone managing from Planet Woowoo. The last time Celtc took such a royal humping outside of OF games, Erich Schaedler was playing for the opposition.

Tony Mowbray is a thoroughly good guy with well-intentioned but naive ideas on how to play the game at the top level.

It was TM's way of playing football that encouraged me to return to ER with my son as a ST holder. I met him once with my son and he was a gentleman too.

I wish him well, I really do, albeit I wish he wasn't the manager of Celtic. Naive? Yes, probably, but he is still learning management and the pressure, the demand for success that the 'tic fans expect - and the bile that comes from some - is maybe too much for him. That said, I fully expect him to remain manager at Parkhead.

If they argue that, then they're wrong. Wenger is a very clever and sophisticated individual who is in love with the beautiful game but is not afraid to mix it when necessary. He plays whatever way is necessary because he understands the nature of the league he is in. Likewise Pep Guardiola.

Mowbray has done nothing to put him anywhere near their level and pursues his ideals regardless of the hard facts staring him in the face.

But from a Hibs point of view he produced some fine things and I certainly haven't forgotten them because of some silly after-match stunt. With him in charge we might not conquer the world, but we'd certainly fill that nice new stand, and people would start leaving the ground with a smile on their faces once again.

Couldn't agree more. Mowbray brought us back the respect we'd lost long ago and apart from the first couple of months of the Collins reign we've never played such good football since, nor come close to finishing third or even fourth. Celtic was the wrong move for him but I'd love to see him back at ER.

Like it or not, there is a difference between Hibs losing 2-1 v Ross County and Celtic losing 4-0 v St. Mirren. If the papers called for a Hibs manager to get sacked every time they lost to a "provincial club" (for want of a better expression), they would be doing it once a month on average.

Journos will also be saying / writing that now because they will have been given the nod by senior folk at Celtc that Mowbray is going to be sacked / consented.

The flip side of that is you could say at least he waited until after the official opening, thus allowing Hibs to garner a lot of positive press coverage. His resignation came as a bit of a surprise, but we were on a run of 'form' even worse than the current run and, like now, were showing little sign of improvement. I still think it's pity it didn't work out for Collins at Hibs.

Not surprised that he gone/ going. He had one season to win the title back in reality from a Rangers side who have won it with a lot to spare.

Celtic have gone backwards some distance since Strachan left. No excuses he has cocked up big time there!

If it wasn't for the indifference in 3rd 4th and perhaps 5th placed sides, Celtic would be quite a bit further down the table.

When he was at hibs he got rid of the biggest names as they didn't always agree with his methods and were bad examples for the younger players, but it worked, the football with hibs was excellent and re-invented us as a club.

So Tony goes to Celtic, gets rid of the people who won't work with him, started bringing in younger players who will buy into his ideas and was probably trying to set celtic on a better path... but no, the fans couldn't understand this and wanted a treble straight away.

A few weeks back Lambert said catagorically that he would never manage Celtic and gave reasons. One of those was that he had no intention of ever getting caught up in the Old Firm circus. It's his perogative to change his mind but I reckon he would be shot down in flames for it.

SHOCKING!!!

Translation. Tony goes in and loses the dressing room, is tactically naive and intorduces wholesale changes in the team, when all that was needed was a left back (he bought one and sold him and brought in an inferior one), a center half and a forward.

You were the one who mentioned he resigned because of "intrusion". AFAIK Mowbray had no hassle in Glasgow and the press were not exactly all over his wife and family were they?

Tony is a private guy. He has tried to resign twice because of intrusion whether that be press or because of your clubs situation. If you think he will not be relieved if not delighted by parting company you are deluded. His personality changed as a result of being your manager and he was not a better man fro that. You could see it in his eyes, his body language and his interviews that he was hating it.You will no doubt bring in someone more "Celtic minded" for the job and you may get better results. You will struggle to get a better man to manage your club. He will be successful in his next appointment of that I have no doubt.

A few weeks back Lambert said catagorically that he would never manage Celtic and gave reasons. One of those was that he had no intention of ever getting caught up in the Old Firm circus. It's his perogative to change his mind but I reckon he would be shot down in flames for it.

I can only assume you read that somewhere!

I can't understand anything Lambert says when he talks.

IMO, he and Dean Windass would make a great double act for interviews.

Who you tipping for the poisoned chalice JR.

Not so long ago a few of your 'bhoys' were keen to get John Hughes.

I reckon they'll hope that Lenny is a stand out in the short term and that the fans will want him - ergo they get the cheap option. if that happens then great, its a win win, but its a big risk.

Would like Lambert, but I know he said he'd not comeback to manage in scotland, that said, his wife still lives in Renfrewshire, so who knows....

Mark Hughes is out of work and aside from the West Ham job, I don't see anything else available for him down south that he'd take. Would like him, but don't see it happening.

Most of it will depend on the kitty offered. If we adopt the strategy that got martin o'Neill, then we'll get a guy with a track record. If on the other hand the board adopt a strategy of penny pinching, then we'll get a relatively unknown foreigner.

ok jack maybe you're right, but a man who takes a club up from the championship playing football, doesn't know how to win a dressing room?

The championship is a much tougher league than the spl and he did pretty well in that. The fact is that Scottish Football is populated by big time charleys who think they are better than they are. Le Guen & Mowbray had the right idea in weeding out the cancers at the club who thought they were too big to be told what to do, and wouldn't work with the manager and trying to build up the club, but they forget that people would rather have short sighted success in winning something at all costs.

Mowbray would have been very good for Celtic... he has had 2 transfer windows for god's sake and the players that were playing for you guys last season, can't play the football mowbray commands.. so what is he meant to do???

No chance of Mowbray going or being sacked. They've invested too much in him to let him go. They've allowed him to radically change the team and also have super duper Keane. To sack him or let him walk would mean their own resignation.

I actually agree with most of what you say. Mowbray to Celtic was the wrong move for both parties right from the start. Wrong type of club for him despite his playing background. Simply too high an expectation level and time is not on your side in a job like that where success is demanded. For all that Strachan wasn't too popular he has a tougher shell than Mowbray, got his head down and commanded a decent trophy-winning record.

However, that doesn't mean I think Mowbray is a bad manager. He fitted very well at Hibs where under-achievement is the norm and for a short time he put us back at a level where we all think we should be ie top four every season. I think he could do that again no problem.

I don't think it'll be the likes of Malky McKay I think it'll be a Hiddink type thing. Know it means them splashing cash but I dunno just have a wee feeling they may go down that route. Spend on the manager and maybe don't have to spend on the team so much?

Also, your statement about LeGuen is contradictory, sure it was funny seeing Rangers in a bit of turmoil, but the Huns were right to get rid of LeGuen. We are right to get rid of Mowbray.




For once I agree with you. Mowbray's been sinking without trace for months, which is no mean achievement considering how short a time he's been in the job. I suspect that what was wanted in the stands was a sense that the club was moving in the right direction, building a competitive side that would entertain while winning, and a reasonable assurance that they wouldn't get turned over 4-0 by a team in the bottom half of the league.

There are times when I do not understand my fellow Hibees. Here we all are, gloating over the demise of Tony Mowbray (who in my opinion jumped from ER just ahead of trouble he knew was coming) and the problems of Celtic, when we've lost the local Derby, been dumped out of the Scottish Cup by a lower-division team (albeit a thoroughly well-prepared one) after leading them three times, and are rapidly running out of places where we can be expected to register a win. Away to Falkirk on Saturday? Hibs gonnae win? I don't think so.....

TM , thoroughly decent guy who seemed to undergo a personality transplant when he arrived at the lesser greens , ie he seemed to lose any personality. At Hibs a dignified articulate honest spokesman , at Celtc an ungracious waffling bullshifter.

Fitba wise an unrealistic fitba "purist" who put visions of style before substance. Teams like Brazil and Barca play Brazil and Barca fitba cause theyve got Brazil and Barca quality players. TM tried to do it with WBA journeymen and Parkheid donkeys and was too arrogant / blinkered to see it was a non starter. Having said that weve maybe got our own unrealistic fitba purist ....

But what I don't get Jack is the need for CL cash and Celtic Park being sold out more often than not is vital for the 'business plan' so surely if 100k a week for keane to get Bums on seats (incidently I doubt very much that TM had anything to do with his coming...but thats nother debate) equates to 5million a year...surley for less tha half that you could get a 'name' with track record that would have waiting lists for season tickets and a greater chance of CL cahs / Success as well as domestic success - I realise the flaw in this is that big names want big budgets for players to protect their reputations..which brings us back to TM who was has had to work on much lower overall wage bill (this along with attitude leading to the exodus) to build from the bottom to bring long term grown talent...Flaw with this is the impatience of the Johnny come latleys who weren't part of crowds of under 15k (IIRC) from a couple of decades back who won't accept 'bulding'.....bit of a catch 22...

Can I suggest Slaven Bilić - knows the british game and plays with flair....but also knows you need a defensive base from which to play from

PS...Beeb now claiming Lenny is on game by game deal......now that I understand

FWIW I think Celtic may surprise everyone and go for a big name in the summer. Stuffed if I know who but I have a wee feeling that after losing the league so badly [and who knows maybe ending the season with nowt] that the board may see this as a point to try to get a jump on Rangers [who are well stuffed financially]

I don't think it'll be the likes of Malky McKay I think it'll be a Hiddink type thing. Know it means them splashing cash but I dunno just have a wee feeling they may go down that route. Spend on the manager and maybe don't have to spend on the team so much?

To be honest, so long as they crash and burn regardless I'm happy! :greengrin

Paul Lambert. :agree:

Jim Gannon, if he can be arsed with the commute from Leftfield.

Also he's not adverse to short-term deals so he won't be hard to get rid of.

Well he's got the right credentials, crap manager and a Tim. He's probably "Celtic minded" enough unlike Lambert who kicks with the wrong foot for them. Even though he played for them Lambert is not remotely a Celtic man.

For your information David O'Leary would be popular among Celtic fans, especially the Irish ones.

Also, your comment about Lambert kicking with the wrong foot is well wide of the mark. For example, do you think that David Moyes would not be a popular choice because he supported Rangers as a youth, while having a much less distinguished career as a Celtic Player.

Lastly, Paul's father Billy was indeed a Rangers fan, but went to see his son every time he played for Rangers. Paul never had a team as such growing up, he was more into just playing the game

Bilic not a bad bet. Houllier perhaps? Other than that I can't see any likely ones in the whole list who would get bums on seats and attract players... Rijkaard?

Tell you what, some culture shock if they do get a big name in. Freezing cold Tuesdays in Dundee etc..! :greengrin

I have to brief as I'm off out...

Celtic are now in a position where we have to spend big just to stay still. Lawwell et al lost their focus and were content just to be ahead of Rangers, they gambled on Rangers having a fire sale and underestimated the effect Smith would have on a team choc full of uber huns. We now have to pay for that neglect.

That said, I do believe that we have a very good nucleus there, so what is needed is someone to come in and galvanise those already there and for the board to provide cash for some key additions.

Lastly, Slavan Bilic is NOT the man to do this. Although he's right popular with the young team. :greengrin

I was being flippant Jack, I acknowledged that O'Leary would be popular as he is probably "Tim enough" for them even though he's a gash manager and well aware of Lambert and Moyes football origins. Maybe if Moggas predecessor had been called Liam O'Strachan he might have got on a bit better, what d'ya think Jack?

If this had happened 10 matches back, you can guarantee Hughes would have been in the frame - pushed forward by the Weegie Media. If the press don't have Hughes on their shortlist, you gotta wonder why not :confused:

Oh, and Stokes, Miller and Bamba would have been going with him.

His "I don't want to be a serial SPL manager" gave me the boak back then, and that was when he was at Hibs, well he's not going to be :agree:

I do have some sympathy for Mogga, he was a good fit for Hibs at the time he was with us and got the best out of a good bunch of young players, bolstered with some good signings, he has a football philosophy and ideal that he wants to run with that proved to be his undoing at Celtic where under the idiotic relentless pressure of the worstfansintheworld would never get the time to implement. I hope he goes on to do a good job wherever it may be!

Same thing kinda happened with Le Guen at Rankers, he was trying to change too much and the backlash with Barry the Ned was too much for the fans/board to take and they pulled the pin on him, which was just as well for the rest of us as I think he would have done a good job given time, thank god for the old firm and their relentless obsession with each other :greengrin

Not really. We've got to be careful we don't start some heavy reviosnism with regards Strachan's time at Celtic. Despiet his successes, we suffered some awful cup exits under his tenure and some awful football.

So, in my opinion, the reaction and reception Strachan got from the support is mixed - a bit of a refelection of his time at Celtic. He got his name chanted often enough and both the Green Brigade and Jungle Bhoys fan groups produced some of their biggest and best banners with him on them. He came in, was effective for the most part but he bacame stale and decided to move on.

I think the media mostly are looking for an angle regards strachan that's just not there.

For what its worth, the most vilified managers in my time supporting celtic (First game 1975) were David Hay and Liam Brady.
