CELTIC fans are a critical bunch on Twitter. It’s fair to say because of what’s at stake this term, everyone’s emotions are heightened, throw into that a pandemic and it’s not a breeding ground for content minds; the negativity is outrageous at times.
So let us try and ease some of your football-related stress with some pertinent information.
Celtic have made varied starts to the season over the past ten years. Some of them have been good and some not so good, but the end result has always been the same.
Neil Lennon’s men have played seven games so far this term and have amassed 19 points from a possible 21 – not bad at all. In fact, Celtic have never had the maximum 21 points from their first seven games of the season during this run of consecutive titles.
They are right in line with five of the past ten campaigns and much better off than 2018/2019 season, Brendan Rodgers final season when they had a very poor start to the campaign.
We’re only two goals scored behind last years figures and are on the same points we had during the invincible and double treble season. We’re on our way, is what we can take from these stats.
Dropped points from our rivals means Celtic are just one point off the top with a game in hand. While Celtic fans should never be complacent, we must also recognise the positive signs. We have had plenty of people telling us that the other side of Glasgow have had a terrific start while there’s a touch of doom and gloom about the Celtic start. That might be down to the Champions League exit, and that’s fair, but in the league, Celtic are continuing a trend of success.
