ED007 what do you make of Zenit giving "4000 free tickets to academy players and their families" in part of ground which was supposed to be closed as a punishment by UEFA
Hardly in the spirit of things is it, simply making sure part of ground not empty.

{Ed007's Note - Well there must be a right few good Catholics in there if there's 4000 just from the players and their families!}

21 Feb 2018 16:22:22
ha ha ED007 my point exactly, methinks Zenit sticking 2 fingers at UEFA.

{Ed007's Note - It must be a loophole in the rules, good on them I say.}

Pretty sure it won't happen but what reaction do you think Celtic would give if we were sent to Ibrox for a third time this season? Or is there an official agreement it can't happen?

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 15:28:23
Cant happen Jim, got to do with full season tickets and special season tickets which don't include games against them. Football wise it wouldn't matter we'd pump them anyway😁.

Aye but stevie the way it's worked out? Two teams out of the top six need to go there for a 3Rd time. Can't see it being us tho, more likely hearts n hibs.

What would the reaction be from that lot if they had to come to Paradise? Pitch forks and marches to Hampden?

Dianne's pool hall, is now a Malone's, it's just up from Haymarket station, is not been open long as a Malone's, but think they would have it on.

{Ed007's Note - Get round to KennyJambo's house and give his door a rattle, Seymour.}

International Bar used to have good atmosphere but not sure what it is like now. I know the Heriot-Watt supporters bus left from there so you had the boys in before and after matches.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 14:30:42
Dianes shut! This is outrageous. great place for nice sticky weed. whatever that is? Used to be a right shifty but mellow pitch in amongst the Embra salt n sauce glitterati.

The pool hall is next door to a pub called the spiders web (or at least it was) , now she’s a boozer. Tread carefully if you venture in there.

I don't think £7m is a fair reflection on young edouard but if celtic go try revamp deal. Psg are not going be want player back especially if celtic pass. I would say he's worth £3.5m with add on's? Paddy as I said yesterday I did read the £15m price wanted if what other fans have said is right we could get him for £7m I would be happy. Problem is he's done Scotland for 2 yrs might want a change? Start of new season new start with Epl team.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 13:32:25
Edourd isn't worth 7 mill and Roberts at 15 is laughable i wouldn't break our transfer record for either.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 14:28:19
I don't think you should compare either deal to our transfer record, I think you should compare it to the current market. PR is a talented young English player, there has been some big transfers of young English players recently so I reckon he would go for about £10m down south.

Sometimes I think Charlie Nicholas gets a hard time on here from fans who moan about bias in the media but want him to only ever say positive things about Celtic. However, having read his European predictions for this week I now realise that he clearly doesn't have a clue what he's talking about. He praised our performance last week as "They showed they do have Plan B in European games when they know they're not going to dominate the ball. " Minimal research would show that we did, in fact, dominate possession - as well as shots on target, shots off target and corners!

Agree1 1Disagree

21 Feb 2018 13:18:33
Kev I’ve made my feelings about Nicholas perfectly clear! The guy is a first class 🛎 end! He tipped us for defeat in the first game and despite us dominating the game from start to finish and should have won by more he tips us to get beat tomorrow! Think his exact words were more misery for us! Celtic fan my bottom! Guy is a clown!

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 13:58:56
Nicholas is a clown and has as much incite into football as I do into brain surgery. Actually I take that back, I am more clued up about brain surgery and I know hee-haw.

I think Lennon must of read my post yesterday lol.
Progresion in Europe could hamper our league results . but this is were we want to be fighting on all fronts.
However for me it's 10 in a row all day long.
If we don't win 10 then it mean we have probably let a newly form club catch and over take us. in the position both clubs are in then that is just unthinkable.

Who smacked Lennon? he had a cut nose and two black eyes at the press conference.

20 Feb 2018 14:24:47
The rags really can't help themselves. A video of Gardyne in an x rated video pops up on the internet and all of a sudden he's an ex celt. Always trying to drag us into negative press at any turn.

20 Feb 2018 11:35:48
Is Patrick Roberts worth the prospective £15m City want? My brother says if celtic bought Paddy he would die happy man. I don't think we could afford to put him in the team for that? There is a glass ceiling and I think it's way over what we could or would afford. Anything up to 7m is our limit am presuming.

Agree1 3Disagree

20 Feb 2018 13:49:18
The price being talked about in the summer was only about half of that.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 14:21:22
Man City can want what ever they want, when there is no possible trade for Paddy Roberts . If when the market opens and if Manchester City are anxious to buy, the clubs who have registered an interest will be made aware of the price required .
The rest of us can speculate until the cows come home and we will only be given a figure that suits both clubs .

Agree3 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 14:22:55
inflated prices, 1 @ 15 mill or 2 or 3 players for that price? my choice: not at that price.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 15:28:10
Ed is £15m the price that Man City are looking for it is that a figure plucked by the media? Can’t see how that figure is justified, due to his injuries his stock is lower than last season.

{Ed007's Note - The first I heard of it was reading this thread but if you look back the story originated on that $hitty HTC site or whatever it's called.}

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 16:24:29
I am sure the prices being banded around last summer was 6-8 million and the fact his contract will be a year shorter you would think that his transfer fee would be lower again.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 17:12:58
I don't know how a price can double for a player who hasn't played all season; especially when you compare it to how Dembele seemed to depreciate in value since last season. However, whenever the EPL is concerned it's a farcical market when you look at how much obscene fees have been spent on real average players recently.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 17:23:31
Celtic had a bid of 6.5m for Roberts knocked back last Summer.

Agree7 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 23:34:21
I think we have to look at what we paid for Sinclair. I think it was around £4.5m, there is quality out there at similar value and don’t think paddy (although I highly rate him) is worth a gamble at £7m+.

Agree0 1Disagree

21 Feb 2018 01:04:47
Sevco MSM creating the conditions trying to price us out. Paddy 7 million with sell on if we were interested. It boils down to his willingness to leave MC?

Any figure you see, apart from coming from Celtic, is a figment of someone’s imagination. Taximan talk.

Neil Lennon assumption that celtic can be caught if they progress in europa Cup. There is probably a hint of truth in that. Could we be caught; yeah I think we could. Get passed Zenit your into last 8. What my question is to Ed and rest of hoops. What what you settle for? To reach another final potential winners or to rake up another title on way to 10? I might be against the majority but I think the 9 from the Lisbon lions should not be equalled. It was a special team that made two European finals and 4 semi finals! The league had strength. Scottish teams played in Europe and didn't fade. I would love another final and have our name on a Cup. What's everybodies opinion?

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 11:51:56
This ten in a row is is becoming a pain in the ass. Would i like to win it, of course, but it's not the be all and end all. Surely the progress of the Club is paramount? A Euro final would take precedence for me. I also add the feeling, personal, that i doubt very much if we would have a chance of doing it. outside forces and all that.

What will certain sections of the support be like? Jeeze a bad pass at Celtic Park is bad enough!

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 12:19:41
When we get the injured players back we have the squad to win the title if we progress in Europe. Even the players we have now won't lose this league. If we get 4 points off Rangers then its done.

Agree0 1Disagree

20 Feb 2018 13:36:41
Ten in a row . simples.

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Feb 2018 13:43:03
Ten in a row without success or even progress in Europe is merely a reflection of how poor the opposition is in Scotland, rather of any improvement in Celtic.

Agree1 2Disagree

20 Feb 2018 14:09:04
No improvement since Brendan came in qualified 2 year in a row for cl previous 2 years didn't treble o my 4th in history unbeaten season already won first cup of this season come on aindo.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 14:32:27
No club in the world has the league won, until it is mathematically impossible for them to be beaten . Celtic are no different . However there is no club other than Celtic who are capable of putting a run together to match Celtic, and then get 10 points more than Celtic in the last 11 matches .
Aberdeen Rangers and Hibs are all in the race for 2nd and it could be a tight race unless Rangers die around the middle of March .
However it's good to see Aberdeen and Hibs mount a decent and honest race for second position in league .

Agree1 1Disagree

20 Feb 2018 14:23:22
For me the league is a must win, if its 1 or 10 in a row that's the bread and butter and bragging rights, also that's not to say we can't do both and have a great run in the EL, maybe win/ final, and it might only come around once in your life time as a fan. enjoy the journey, taste the win, let it dance on your palate. and as they say here for a good time not a long time. i need to stay off those tablets. hail hail. let's do the ruskies first.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 15:35:44
That's not what I said, we could win a hundred in a row, if there is no decent opposition in Scotland, is only in European competitions, that you can guage any real improvement, of course there has been improvement under Brendan, but the real barometer of improvement is Europe.

{Ed007's Note - Sorry, Aindoh but just to rewind a bit, where did Neil Lennon say Celtic can be caught if we progress in Europe?

"The league is a lot more competitive this season. I still expect Celtic to go on and win it comfortably but if they’ve got one eye on Europe there may be an opportunity to make inroads. However, it’s going to take a hell of a run for somebody to put a shoulder on Celtic."

I take it that was twisted into a headline that Lennon said Celtic can be caught?}

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 17:15:11
The only way our club can continue to progress is if we get to the group stages of the CL because the financial reward is so great.

With this in mind, the answer to the question would I prefer to:

a) lose league and get to Europa League final

or

b) not reach the final but retain the league and maintain the chance of 10 in a row.

I would go for option (b) because if we don't win the league we don't get CL football, unless we won the final. Not only that I would prefer 10 in a row to winning the Europa League. If we were not going for 10 in a row I would be torn because although I want the team to progress, the Seville season was probably the most amazing season I have experienced, despite not winning anything that year.

Anyway, the answer is moot because it is highly unlikely we would get to the final as there are much better teams than us still left in the competition.

Agree1 0Disagree

20 Feb 2018 17:33:13
I was going off on a tangent.

{Ed007's Note - No it's fine mate, I hijacked your post but I just wanted to get that in there.}

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Feb 2018 09:54:33
If we take care of becoming a team that can qualify and play well in the cl group stages, then the spfl will be an even easier proposition than it was last season. Euro success guarantees home domination. If we can cope there we are miles ahead.
