From the minute-by-minute report on celtic's official site:


19:00
Samaras lays the ball off to Crosas at the edge of the box but the Spaniard's shot flies over

22:00
Crosas has another effort but the shot is blocked this time

27:00
GOAL! SCOTT McDONALD - KILLIE 0 CELTIC 1 - What a strike from Celtic. Brown, O'Dea and McGeady are involved. The winger skins his man and slips a pass to Crosas. He picks out McDonald, who turns in the box and finds the bottom corner. Great stuff.

(From the match report on the official site: Just a minute later Celtic grabbed the opener, with a move started by Aiden McGeady and teed up by Marc Crosas. Taking the ball on the edge of the box, the Spaniard played a clever ball in to the feet of McDonald, who turned, took a couple of touches to put his marker off balance and then powered ball into the far corner.)

58:00
Great effort from Brown. Hinkel feeds Crosas, who picks out Brown. His 25-yard shot whistles over

75:00
Crosas picks out O'Dea at the back post but Killie again block the effort.

Hey pep, I m back. How are things ?

There seems to be some problem with the forum page, at least, it is not loading for me.

Dropping points has just increased my anticipation and excitement. I am wondering whether I can manage a preview without having watched any of Bilbao all season and also having missed the Copa-Mallorca game.

Welcome back! Yeah, seems to be a problem. It's only from the last hours, so could be arranged soon.

looks like they're finally using Crosas to his abilities. Play Marc in a more advanced role and you'll love his passing. Just like how Xavi was first 'recognized' by Europe. Before, he was just regarded as another good passing DM. Now.. So let's hope Marc finds his calling earlier. Then hopefully we can scoop him out in 2 years' time without forking money out for Cesc
