I remember seeing we won 2 nil.. What happened second leg mate?
Celtic crashed out to the Spaniards of Madrid but only after a game of controversy and regret on their part.
The regret was that they missed a glorious chance to go ahead in 5 minutes with a vital away goal when MacLeod won the ball in midfield and passed to Doyle. He then sent McCluskey clear on goal but with only the keeper to beat he shot meekly past.
In 18 minutes Latchford made a great save from Juanito and six minutes later did well to keep out a shot by Del Bosque. With Celtic looking comfortable disaster struck on the troke of half time. Latchford missed a Cunningham corner and with ball bobbing about, Santillana was able to hammer in a goal off a Celtic defender.
After half time Real put Celtic under intense pressure and Santillana headed another Cunningham corner aginst the bar with Roddy MacDonald heading clear before anyone could reach the rebound. In 56 minutes Real equalised. Cunningham crossed from the left for Juanito to head down and the German, Uli Stielike, hit a glorious drive low past Latchford.
Celtic now tried to take the game to their hosts and Real escaped a penalty claim when Benito handled in the box and the veteran captain Pirri was lucky not to put through his own goal from a pass back.
With seven minutes left Real grabbed the killer goal. Angel burst to the bye line and sent in a powerful cross for Juanito to haed in from close range.
This week marks 3 years since we last played Hibs in any competition. Couldn't have predicted that back then, when Butcher had just taken over and they were like 5th or 6th in the league.
Wonder why the club don't implement a system for season ticket holders whereby if you aren't atending you can select an option online and it means the club can put the seat up for sale again. Then they can share the profits.
Win, win I'd say. Club fills the stadium and both parties make money. Would be costly to implent probably, although I'm not that tech savvy so I don't know.
i'm sure barca do this
We'd need most games to be a complete sellout for this to work.
Aye pretty sure they do and they make a power off day trippers needing tickets.
Obviously we'd be less so but it would still work. Mate has a season ticket and didn't use it once from November due to work commitments. It was him I was discussing it with.
Wonder if they've looked into it.
Pretty simple - There isn't the demand.
Probably only 3-4 odd league games a season, if even, that it's hard to get tickets for.
Why would the club half profits with ST holders, who want to 'share' their ticket, when they could just sell seats that are unoccupied?
Makes sense for a Barca, Man Utd etc - could work if demand returns to early 2000's - but not at the moment.
