Why when we have a "bloated" squad do we keep signing squad players? Every window we sign 1-3 players who are on the bench at best. Yes they may be cheap but when the first team needs investment why fritter wages?

Good point Brendan said it was quality over quantity and then we sign guys like mulumbu and hayes gamboa put all the money together we've spent on they types and you d get a class player.

The club have over a full team of 'passengers' that rarely feature at all in the managers plans:-
De Vries
Gamboa Simunovic Compper Izzaguire
Arzani Allen Bitton Eboue Benyu
Hayes

Leaving Bain, Ralston, Hendry, Ajer, Mulumbu, Johnston, Griffiths, Sinclair and Christie to add to the starting 11 that beat Hibs.

Obviously we need cover for every position, but we scertainly need to offload quite a lot of deadwood to raise cash for better quality. The wage bill is around £63m and obviously there will be players reluctant to leave on current wages and of course there's the problem of persuading other clubs to take our 'rejects' without losing money in the long run; but we do need to downsize.

Has anybody any info on Gamboa? Majority of the time i post is to ask what's going on with him lol, im just baffled how he isn't getting any game time? especially when he's played recently he's looked very good.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 13:34:57
Very good? Average at best IMO.
I think it's pretty obvious that the man who sees him train everyday has deemed him not good enough.
A major clue to that is that Rogers would rather play Hendry or ajer at right back than gamboa.

Gamboa looked very good. In what game can't recall him having any good game for Celtic. Defensively very poor.

Agree0 0Disagree

Had a decent game at Firhill with 2 assists, a better option than Lustig imo.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 13:59:23
Luckily it's Rogers opinion that counts because he's never better than lustig. Not a chance.

22 Oct 2018 14:09:32
Heard he doesn't support the Republican movement so he's as good as finished with us.

Kev luckily Deila's opinion on a footballer is much better than Rodgers😂😂😂.

You actually think Delia was identifying the signings made in his time? 😂😂
Maybe ajer but that was about it.

Malkybhoy

The game at Firhill granted he looked decent going forward. First half alone he let 6 crosses into the box. Very poor defender IMO a RB has to defend he can't. Reminds me of Tavinear at the Zombies. Looks good going forward but hopless defending.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 16:12:51
Hard to disagree Happyhoppy but still a far better option than Lustig.

Agree0 1Disagree

22 Oct 2018 17:55:29
I heard that BR is pissed off with Gamboa as when he first came here he buggered off to play some meaningless games with Costa Rica and missed pre-season, would explain why he only ever plays him when there really is no other alternative.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 17:57:44
Good against a terrible Partick team.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 18:31:08
If Gamboa was playing on Saturday Hibs would not have scored their second goal as he would have had the pace to catch the Hibs player but instead Lustig's lack of pace was highlighted again. Granted we are not blessed with decent right backs but Lustig's time was up long ago! Gamboa all day long for me👍.

22 Oct 2018 19:07:51
Why not just sign a decent rb this has been going on for 2 years surely there's one out there.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 19:29:17
he was solid in the first rosenberg games and any game iv seen him play domestically he's been decent. gets up in the opposition box and whips a decenf cross. just his 2 games against Barcelona and bayern has stood out most within our support. lustig done a lot worse than him. every goal in europe comes from a cross into box mostly on right side and tierney is liable for it too.

Have you all noticed the not so subtle attempts by the Scottish media to lull Centic into complacency.
Apparently Leipzig "are struggling in the Bundesliga, " DESPITE still being 4th in a strong league. Their star goalscorer Werner "is suffering from burnout" and "Leipzig have injury problems"
Er so have Celtic with Brown and Griffiths struggling. Want to bet Werner "suddenly finds his goalscoring form on Thursday" Couple that to our poor away form Leipzig SHOULD be confident, not us.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 12:29:32
Leipzig are actually 5th in a very competitive Bundesliga and far from struggling. Thursday night will be a tough ask for us.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 15:16:15
I can go back several decades watching Celtic and I can't remember us beating many German teams in European competition - maybe two or three wins in all - so we always find them tough opponents.
I don't expect a win, but another good performance like the last two or three games, might get us a wee result?
If not, I won't be too disappointed as long as we continue to pummel domestic opponents and retain our trophies.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 20:19:20
Thursday night will be the same old story. We have seen it time after time on our away games in Europe. Hopefully we can get a point and an away win V Rosenborg and another 2 wins at home.

Am I right in thinking we've not had a penalty all season so far? cannot remember getting one 🤔Unbelievable stat if true.

Counting all competitions hearts have been awarded 6 pens in 15 games scoring 4.sevco have received 7 pens in 21 games scoring 7.Celtic have had only 2 penalties in 21 matches, ntcham and dembele (against armenia team) both scoring. Celtic have not received a penalty in our last 16 matches.

22 Oct 2018 10:15:46
@ stevie and Leon, so your point is? Or are you paranoid that the whole world is against us😂😂 no one is against us, your embarrassing yourselfs and all Celtic supporters with your moon howling posts. Sevco's two penalties yesterday were penalties. Why would it be an unbelievable stat? We have to have a foul committed against us inside the box to be awarded a penalty, we don't have a certain quota of penalties to be awarded in our favour during a season! It astounds me that people actually believe the drivel they post!

Agree1 2Disagree

22 Oct 2018 11:17:17
Malky do you not think they were very soft the first one is either way seen them given and not given the second one it's minimal contact with no intent the gruffallo couldn't go down quick enough and do you think Hamilton should have had a pen when tab pulls the boy back.

Malky am not saying there is purely on yesterday's game mate.

22 Oct 2018 13:02:22
@Malky, WTF are you on about wind your neck in . I asked a simple question because I couldn't remember us being awarded a pen this season, which i stated would of been an amazing stat considering the amount of possession we have in games. Leon answered the question by telling me we've had one domestically. No conspiracy theories here. Hope you realise you've made a complete and utter tit of yourself coming out with slogans like moon howling Try reading posts and stop trying to decipher things to suit your warped little mind.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 13:10:07
Celtic and sevco are both attacking minded teams, with similar goals scored, shots on goal etc. We both have skillful and tricky players who make quite a few penalty appeals. In scotland i feel we don't get as many penalties as them with the 50/ 50 appeals. I feel it could become a bigger issue the longer the season goes on.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 13:11:50
Got to agree with Malky here, the paranoia on here is insane, I've said it before, how have we won 6 trophies in a row with everyone against us and in favour with Sevco?, the people who run our game are hopeless and so are our referees. Not against us just hopeless.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 13:35:15
Eh Scott McKennas tackle on French Eddy for one. I cannnot stand it when people coin the phrase conspiracy at someone who had an opinion on something they don't agree with. They stats are actual facts!

You will find the referees will be hopelessly good the closer we get to 10 in a row.

Jeezo, how can asking a genuine question about how many pens we've had this season be turned into accusations of Insane Paranoid moon howlers. 😂.

Agree Kwaj and it's not a conspiracy that McKenna got the 2 games ban upheld and the ref got demoted for his next game Specsavers has got a lot to answer for.

22 Oct 2018 19:16:04
Malkybhoy, you will agree both Celtic and Sevco are both attacking minded teams who have similar goals scored, shots at goal and shots on target etc. We both have skilful and tricky players who make quite a few penalty appeals. that's were the similarities differ with regards to the amount of penalties actually being awarded, with one club getting more than the other. I can’t remember in my lifetime rangers or Sevco going 16 games and counting without getting a penalty kick do you.

Agree1 0Disagree

James Forrest this season
19 games
17 starts
6 goals
9 assists.
Hope he keeps this up for the season.

He's finally replicating the form he showed when he first broke into the team, and carried it for a few months under Lennon. Long may it continue.

21 Oct 2018 13:38:37
Does anyone think we don't actually need new defenders and our issue is actually Gordon?

Defenders seem to lack confidence in Gordon there was a few examples yday one where boyata kicked it out when gordon was running out and another benkovic tackled rather than letting gordon come out.

Dont get me wrong Gordon is a good goalkeeper and has done well for us.

It grates on me a little that he flaps the ball out and that he kicks it to the other team quite a lot.

I just feel if we got a new goalkeeper it would give the defenders but more confidence.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 15:21:37
Preaching to the choir here. The guy is done and should have been replaced last summer; however, BR doesn't seem confident enough in Bain to drop him for any length of games.
His shot-stopping from dead-ahead has never been a problem, but his positioning, speed of reaction and distribution are all dodgy at best.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 16:17:35
A new keeper and a new right back pretty much as was required in the summer, striker too now with the sale of Dembele. We're really not that far away from a good squad.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 16:48:25
Agree priority is CF, RB and CB if any are lost in Jan. Icing on the cake would be a new #1 GK that can pass a ball.

Agree1 0Disagree

22 Oct 2018 20:19:35
OAB Gordon is done?
Really? Didn't he pull off a great save against Boyle, Didn't he pull off numerous great saves against RB Salzburg which could a been a cricket score without him, hasn't he pulled off crucial saves against sevco numerous times.
Oh wait he not a great passer well hello he is a goalie, you have seen Liverpool Man Utd Chelsea spend well over 60m for their goalies and ALL of them have committed howlers recently either in world cup or league.
Incidentally if the Scottish press said "Gordon was done" YOU would be the first on here foaming at the mouth and giving it conspiracy theories.

Is mulumbo injured, thought he did well when he got his chance.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 15:01:58
Rodgers and Mulumbo had words yesterday. Apparently Brendan not happy that he didn't know the words of The boys of the old brigade. Lawell and Desmond are having a meeting this week but it's seems Mulumbos time is up.

Much much more like it today. It just goes to show what we can do when we attack with a bit of purpose. 4 goals, hit the woodwork 4 times, Edouard had 3 one on ones with the keeper and countless other chances missed. It really could have been an absolute beating for Hibs today. None of the sideways and backwards passing and slow build up in recent weeks.

Some real good performances from Forrest, Rogic, McGregor and Benkovic. What I did find a bit strange was why BR switched to a back 3 for the second half. Hibs has very little joy in the first half that we completely dominated. However in switching formation it seemed to allow Hibs a lot more freedom to attack allowing them back into the game.

If we play with the same attacking purpose and tempo for the rest of the season we'll be in for a treat.

Agree4 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 12:05:16
That’s the best I’ve seen Celtic play for some time yesterday particularly in the first half. The fastest thing on the park the ball was getting moved forward at pace rather than sideways. Benkovic looks an outstanding prospect and Boyata kept up his run of excellent performances. Forrest is unplayable on that form. And why the best full back Scotland has produced since Danny McGrain has been receiving the criticism he has is absolutely beyond me. Anyway hopefully that’s us turned the corner after having a tad less than impressive start to the season.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 12:40:00
Just shows what happens when you have two quality centre backs playing, gives the forward players confidence to go forward with a bit of flair.
Break the bank in Jan if not for those two then others with a bit of class.

Agree1 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 13:39:07
Benkovic looks a right player and boyata the best cb in the league by a mile.

Agree2 0Disagree

21 Oct 2018 17:22:26
Just realised it was 5 times we hit the woodwork yesterday. Didn’t realise Edouards shot in injury time for his hat trick came back off the post.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 21:35:47
Neil Lennon still a bad looser I see, greeting that his team had no chance as they were up against 12 men from the start. He was obviously watching a different game from me! Some of the yellows giving to Celtic players whilst Hibs went unpunished was embarrassing. Hibs were lucky it wasn't double figures today, Neil Lennon should be thanking the woodwork tonight cause it saved his team from embarrassment! HH.

Agree2 0Disagree

20 Oct 2018 23:36:12
Nothing wrong with a manager being a bad loser, I hope he keeps that quality because he might be back with us in a few years time.
Anyway, a few mistakes today but the momentum is growing, we're not playing too shabby at all. Stevie G-String has no idea what he's in for this season but it's gonnae be fun to watch. HH.

Anyone ever notice when there's a dangerous free kick the ref is diligent of the yardage of our wall yet let's the opposition wall gain yards!
