Yes, yikes indeed! I don’t normally post the results of other games but I thought a 15-1 needed to be.

STUNIVERSE ON TOTTENHAM LINKS

The Bhoys: After Celtic manager Stuniverse managed his team to an 11th Premiership win on the spin at Easter Road against his former club Hibernian, we caught up with him about reports in the media linking him with a move to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

The Bhoys: Congratulations on a superb 3-0 victory on your former stomping ground Easter Road. 

Stuniverse: Thank you. I had a very enjoyable and successful season working here with Hibernian and it's always a pleasure to come back to Easter Road where I've always been made to feel very welcome.

zzzz_Celtic_Stuniverse2.png.c4df733e464f9587fab6a2780247553c.png

The Bhoys: With reports in the media that you're about to become the next Tottenham Hotspur manager, are Celtic about to be added to the list of your former employers?

Stuniverse: Look, I can't control what the media report nor where they get their stories from. What I can tell you is that, yes, there is a managerial vacancy at Tottenham Hotspur but I have not applied for the job and there's been no contact or approach from the powers that be at Tottenham. I'm under contract to Celtic Football Club until the end of May 2027.

20241110_contract.thumb.png.ce8b382160330bc3e20f112d56741033.png

The Bhoys: You were under contract to Falkirk as well when you moved to Hibs and you were also under contract at Hibs when you left them to come here.

Stuniverse: True. But on both of those occasions I moved clubs during the summer. I have never left a club mid-season.

20241110_11_wins.thumb.png.6d7b143fdd9c8c632affa3af59499b6d.png

The Bhoys: The bookmakers have you as 5-2 favourite to be appointed the next Spurs manager.

Stuniverse: I honestly don't know where they get their information from or how they come up with those odds. Just to be clear, I have not applied for the job and there's been no contact from Tottenham at all.

20241110_leading_candidate.thumb.png.e15e14996f0f3c3c81136caf86343766.png

The Bhoys: There’s normally no smoke without fire. In case you haven't heard, Spurs drew 0-0 with Chelsea today and have dropped into the relegation zone. If Tottenham were to make an official approach for you, are you interested in becoming the next Spurs manager?

Stuniverse: Look, this is all hypothetical at the moment: I have not applied for the Spurs job and there's been no contact from Tottenham whatsoever. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm late for the team coach back to Glasgow.

TOTTENHAM HOTSPUR JOB INTERVIEW

Stanley Baryla (Stuniverse's Agent): We seem to have succeeded in keeping your interview out of the media. How did it go?

Stuniverse: I'm not sure to be honest. Jordan Rae-Harding (Director) seemed to like that my teams play entertaining football, but he didn't consider Celtic anywhere near as big a club as Tottenham and he was concerned that I'd never managed anywhere other than Scotland.

20241118_Tottenham_Paul_Hurst_Derby1.thumb.png.e7893702582f9ead57bdae6ea8a82717.png

A bit demoralizing to lose to PSG and United like that, but you're going through to the Europa so that's something. Not sure what you could have done without really shutting up shop in all those games either.

Thank you, @Tajerio. I have to agree with you about Man Utd and PSG. Across the four games, I tried just about everything, different formations / systems, different playing mentalities, and we even had more possession in some of the encounters. Ultimately, I think they simply had more quality than we did... and that's an incredibly difficult gulf to bridge given my commitment to transition to a Scottish / British-Irish squad.

I've been wondering about 3rd place qualifying for Europa but I've not been able to find anything in the rules about it. I guess we'll find out for sure after the final Group game against Olympiakos and their whopping -37 goal difference from five games. Mind you, ours is -9.

Finally caught up. So much drama with the Tottenham job. I really thought you were going to get it.

Also, my condolence to you and your family. Thank you for still providing updates on the save.

Yes, indeed. I was the bookies favourite as soon as they sacked their previous manager. The Spurs fans thought I was a ‘leading candidate’. Despite not applying for the job, nor declaring interest in the job, I was invited for an interview. Apparently there was nothing wrong with the vision I put forward, but Tottenham decided to go with someone else.

You’re welcome. FM provides an escape from what has been a horrendous year for us so far, specifically the last six weeks, and helps take my mind off things. I don’t have the same enthusiasm for FM as I did, at the moment, but I’m sure it’ll come back over time.

Best wishes.

QUESTION - ANY IDEAS HOW I CAN KEEP MY BREAKTHROUGH PROSPECT FIT?

Paddy McKee, a 19 year-old newgen, is meant to be Celtic's breakthrough player this season, after knocking on the door and impressing last season. In fact, I changed from the 4-4-2 of last season, to the 4-2-3-1 of this season, in part so that I could select an extra midfielder in the starting 11 which would allow me to include Paddy McKee and give him plenty of playing time.

My problem is, I can't keep him fit. Paddy got injured early in pre-season and then wasn't fit to play until the season was underway. Now, it seems, every time I pick him, he picks up another niggling injury.

Any ideas?

Pre-match v Rangers (N) - Betfred Cup Final

BC_F_Rangers_media1.thumb.png.ec759fb1cb7184d86701c0e4ff75f459.png

Match Preview

BC_F_Rangers_preview.thumb.png.72ff8fdd459911a6b7ff981aa42e9fe0.png

The Bhoys: Last season you did us proud, beating Rangers four times out of four in the Premiership, but you lost the most important Old Firm derby of them all, losing in the Scottish Cup Final. Can you assure us that this time you're going to beat the auld enemy and win the trophy?

Stuniverse: I can't promise you we're going to win but I can assure you that we've been doing everything we could this week to give us the best chance of lifting the Betfred Cup and that's what we're determined to do.

Last season the Scottish Cup Final was our last game in a very long season. We played 59 games last campaign, 38 in the league and 21 in the cup competitions. When we analysed the season in the summer, we thought we could've done more to keep the squad fresher and fitter than we did.

This season we've been rotating the squad more than we did last season. I made eight changes for the midweek victory over Dundee United, with the Betfred Cup Final in mind. We wouldn't have done that last season.

BC_F_Rangers_1-0.thumb.png.730dac34a456c045ec7f2f28da918935.png

Anthony Ralston wins the ball for Celtic midway inside his own half and plays it down the line; Karamoko Dembele gathers the ball, sets off on a brilliant, individual run, skipping over challenges, cutting inside, and hitting a shot past Brophy from the edge of the 'D'.

35 minutes.

BC_F_Rangers_2-0.thumb.png.c59f1cf415ce7ce243a9ac67ea7bae09.png

Two Celtic youngsters combine to give Celtic a 4-0 lead. Substitute Billy Gilmour, wins the ball on the edge of his own penalty area, and plays it to Paddy McKee. McKee then runs at pace down the middle of the pitch, leaving Rangers players trailing in his wake, before unleashing a thunderbolt from long range that Brophy can't get anywhere near.

76 minutes.

BC_F_Rangers_5-0.thumb.png.3e1959f8fa38791b7827b5c0ef97d552.png

BC_F_Rangers_6-1_celebrations.png.01d63b8c748a8a098b2eaa2a6536e202.png

FT: Celtic 6-1 Rangers

BC_F_Rangers_report.thumb.png.af5347d9765fb62d89b603f3a8016b5a.png

The Bhoys: Congratulations on winning the Betfred Cup. You didn't just beat Rangers, you absolutely blew them away.

Stuniverse: Thank you. The players were superb today and thoroughly deserve to be wearing their Betfred Cup Winners medals.

We were all hurting after losing to Rangers in the Scottish Cup Final last season. The players. The backroom staff. Myself. The Board. We were all hurting and determined to set the record straight today in the Betfred Cup Final.

I'm thrilled that the players were able to perform so magnificently on such a big stage and absolutely delighted to have given our amazing fans the bragging rights once again.

Thank you, @samboing. After the 1-0 defeat to Rangers in the Scottish Cup Final on the final day of last season, I have to admit I rather enjoyed that 6-1 victory in the Betfred Cup Final.

A bit demoralizing to lose to PSG and United like that, but you're going through to the Europa so that's something

You were correct, @Tajerio. I've not had a message in my Inbox to confirm it, but Europa Cup Knockout 1st Round (two fixtures, two-legs, I assume) have just shown up in my schedule for February.

Hurray, this season's European adventure isn't over yet!

BAIRNS SACK MELLON

BairnsNews: Falkirk manager Micky Mellon has been sacked by chairman Grant Barr following the 2-0 derby defeat to Dunfermline Athletic at East End Park.

Oh for the days when Stuniverse was manager and Falkirk won back-to-back promotions as title winners before finishing 6th in the Premiership. What a great time to be a Bairns fan those three seasons between 2019 and 2022 were.
