We need to sign David Turnbull from Motherwell. This kid is the real deal, get ntcham out the door.

Agree3 Disagree1

22 May 2019 12:14:39
Ntcham is the real deal.

22 May 2019 12:21:47
Ntcham is a cracking player that has suffered through injury this season. He'll be a right important player next season if still here.

22 May 2019 12:53:55
Look st his performance on Sun tgats the ntcham we know bags of ability.

22 May 2019 12:55:47
I really like Ntcham and he is a cracking player when he is on his game but he has seemed well off it since Dembele left.

22 May 2019 16:40:29
Well he should be happy again now we have a Dembele back I the squad. 😂😂.

22 May 2019 08:22:47
Reports today Rafa to stay at Newcastle so that’s one name down. It has to be Lennon’s job surely.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2019 10:28:13
Where are you seeing the reports mate? Had a look and can't see anything.

22 May 2019 13:09:46
Newcastle chronicle.

22 May 2019 13:23:03
Sorry, I did see that. They've put another post out saying that the reports were inaccurate and talks are ongoing.

I was told that he has agreed wages and budgets with Celtic, Newcastle is his preferred option but if he doesn't get guarantees then we are in pole position to sign him.

22 May 2019 15:03:51
He’s come into favourite again with paddy power today, although this seems to change every few hours.

22 May 2019 16:42:07
That's probably cause Timalloy keeps whacking big bets on it.

22 May 2019 08:03:59
Great to see young Dembele in action. Was only able to see YouTube highlights. But when the hearts player tackled him and he went down and just got straight back up and ran with the ball towards goal I was off my seat. Glad to see Lennon gave him the time, looked like he was loving it. Hail Hail.

Agree2 Disagree0

22 May 2019 00:52:44
Does anyone think Karamoko Dembele should get a place on the subs bench for the final.

Agree1 Disagree0

22 May 2019 05:54:50
Over burke yes.

22 May 2019 08:32:38
Would be a slap on the kisser to the players that have played all season.

22 May 2019 08:49:53
Na he doesn't deserve to take the place of someone whos played a part in getting us there.

22 May 2019 09:51:27
Slap in the face to who? Players have been poor all year and he done more in a 45 min spell than some

Out with the old and in with the new

I’d even have Henderson in ahead of Rogic.

22 May 2019 09:53:05
Rubbish. no place for sentiment. there is a treble treble to be won. places should be earned on current form. young Dembele did more in his first 10 mins than Burke has done for weeks!
Not saying he is ready for first team football every week but the lift the whole stadium got when he appeared on Saturday was fantastic. definitely a star of the future.

22 May 2019 10:15:42
I would give Dembele the second half again after his performance last week HH.

22 May 2019 10:52:50
It's important to remember Dembele was up against another 16 year old in Hickey. Probably one of the reasons he was given his chance second half. We know he's more than capable of beating players his own age but up against first team players let's not put too much pressure on the young lad just yet.

22 May 2019 12:05:21
I'd have him on the Bench and bring on either if we are winning by a couple or need a goal with 20 to go. I'd also go with Johnston over rogic and have Henderson on the bench. All 3 deserve it off recent form. More than rogic, burke and a couple of others. I thinks it's time we start really giving our youth a chance some very good youngsters with huge potential. I look at ajax this year and think we can do that if we are run properly. We have the players coming g through to do it.

22 May 2019 12:56:42
There's 5 sub places up for grabs de cries benkovic ntcham possibly hayes or sinc maybe Ralston so where do you got found dembelle unless they've changed the rules and your allowed more subs.

22 May 2019 13:07:37
I thought it was 7 Mally?

22 May 2019 00:03:27
Fair play to N Lennon, despite some doubters he managed to fulfill one of his promises and get Dembele on the pitch and played him for 45 minutes without any injury or harm . Him Johnstone and Henderson reminded me of days gone by when the Managers let us see a wee bit of the future .

The three youngsters were excellent .
I thought Ralston had a very good first half hour but seemed to be out on his feet far too early . Is this the step up from reserve, underage football too big a gap . Would a run of half a dozen first team games in 6 weeks in new season, help him?

Agree1 Disagree2

22 May 2019 00:37:15
He's not long back from injury Chris that may be a part of his lack of fitness also.

22 May 2019 07:42:30
Sorry to say but I don't think Ralston will ever make it at Celtic but I would love him to be prove me wrong.

We definitely need a first choice quality right back because Lustig has been finished for over 2 years now.

22 May 2019 08:33:01
He just needs games and to work on his final ball.

22 May 2019 09:52:27
Ralston will be a good solid right back. He won't be a marauder like KT but he will defend well and that's his job.

22 May 2019 09:52:40
Thought Ralston was poor, the free transfer from Caley showed up him up

Simply not good enough and should be moved on.

22 May 2019 10:11:07
Most Celtic supporters want to see Ralston develop like KT and form a long-term full back partnership, but for one reason or another he has not managed a long enough run in the team to establish himself.
On top of that we have seen guys like Gamboa and Toljan brought in to deputize for Lustig ahead of him and we have signed the American duo Gutman and Perez who I think can both play full-back, so once again he may have to prove himself to a new manager in the summer?

22 May 2019 15:24:57
I also think Ralston needs a run in the team to show what he can do. As far as never being good enough for Celtic as some seem to think it is too early to say and i seem to remember reading on here the same type of thing being said about Forrest and others.

21 May 2019 22:56:03
Anyone looking at karamoko dembele? The young fella looks like a top top talent.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2019 23:08:57
Keep your eyes AFF Ballymena. He's going nowhere.

21 May 2019 21:07:30
Has anyone put in for relocation for their season ticket for next season? If so have you heard anything from the ticket office? I believe people have been contacted today to go to the ticket office to relocate, I submitted my form in early February and haven't been contacted, was wondering if anyone has been success and if so when did you submit your form, I'm desperate for a move but it doesn't look likely.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2019 23:34:34
The last two years I've requested to move and both times I've had to chase for a response that was ultimately a no each time. It's not the best system.

22 May 2019 06:39:52
I relocated last year and filled in the form and went in with it that day and they were happy to move me there and then mate! Might be worth a try.

22 May 2019 07:50:46
Yes I managed to move my seat last season I was in the north stand and I managed to get a move to the Lisbon Lions Upper stand for this season best move ever I now have a cracking view and I no longer have the sun blinding me at every turn that's when the sun is out that is.

22 May 2019 08:53:16
There must be a way the fans can agree a swap then it would just be a formality for the ticket office. Seems simple to me.

21 May 2019 19:29:25
Team for Final?


Tierney hopefully

Brown if fit


Edouard hopefully.

Agree1 Disagree1

21 May 2019 20:19:55





21 May 2019 23:33:57
Kev83. I have to say you know how to pick a team .
I would agree with u 100%, I think Rogic has shown far too little this year, but I would be thinking very strongly of bringing him on for last 20-30 mins.

22 May 2019 05:21:06
I wouldn't have Ntcham and Brown in the same midfield, far too slow, we need McGregor in there to keep the tempo up. We also wouldn't know which Ntcham was going to turn up, he has been poor this season. With Christie out, we are forced to play Rogic, who I hope is keeping his best performance this year for the cup final.
The rest of the team picks itself, apart from the left wing. If KT makes it, I would definitely play Sinclair because they have a better understanding, with Sinclair cutting inside and leaving KT the room outside to work his magic.

22 May 2019 07:37:40
Can't agree there Leon on a couple points
Ntcham was playing well before injury this season and was fantastic against the mob in the 1st game.
McGregor is the best attacking mid available to us at the moment and has to start at number 10 before rogic.
Personally I'd kèep rogic on bench then unleash him with half hour to go when they start to tire
Team I picked has 4 of our top scorers in the league that are available in the 4 attacking positions.

22 May 2019 09:30:18
Kev, I like the faith you have in Ntcham. I am unfair saying he has had a poor season, he has picked up 2 different injuries this season, keeping him out for over 100 days. If he does get the nod for Saturday, a similar performance to last years final would be great.

22 May 2019 22:03:44
Those who don't want NtCham, may have a point, he has had an injury hit and lost of form season, but who should we play instead of NtCham, certainly not Rogic who has had an injury hit season too but has also played badly.

21 May 2019 18:33:22
Got involved in this one over on the Sevvies site and I wondered how the rest of you sit on this one. The SFA took Steve Clark away from Kilmarnock when they're currently in their most successful period for more than 50 years. As an association, I would say they have a responsibility to keep our teams as competitive as possible which in turn makes our league more competitive. For that reason, I don't think they should be taking a successful manager away from a member club. For me it simply demonstrates that their influence is destructive to our game. They charged Broony with not acting in the best interests of Scottish football. In my opinion, they should now be facing those charges. Thoughts anyone?

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2019 18:43:45
As much as I have no interest in the sfa that’s a ridiculous post bud.

21 May 2019 19:14:28
So let me get this right COYBIG you’re saying the SFA should NOT appoint a success manager?

21 May 2019 19:15:47
A blind man could see that Clarke was best man for the Scotland job mate.
For once the sfa have got it right and kept a good manager involved in Scottish football.

21 May 2019 19:22:15
Cant see your logic there mate, a think he was leaving kilmarnock anyway for family reasons but the sfa are entitled to go for whoever they want. Personally I don't like international football so I shouldn't really have an opinion but I think clarke has just taken his last managers job, scotland will ruin his reputation, well maybe he'll end up back at killie.

21 May 2019 19:36:18
The bottom line is Kilmarnock will probably go downhill from here after progressing into a top three side, capable of taking points off ANY SPL team and be replaced by another Lee McCulloch or Allen Johnston type who will possibly undo all the good work done before?
I don't think the SFA forced Clarke to leave or if Kilmarnock had tried to extend his stay, but he seems to have made his own mind up for personal reasons and for those of you that follow International football, I suppose it's light years better than EBT McLeish.

21 May 2019 19:50:00
Great appointment for Scotland
Here to a major finals
It’s been a while
Scotland for the World Cup!

21 May 2019 19:56:02
Ok, doesn’t sound like i’m getting much support for this. My point is they should be looking for someone who’s either out of work or from another association. I don’t think they should’ve sacked Strachan as he he came close to qualification which is probably about as good as we can expect.

21 May 2019 20:08:33
Ok Coybig let's go for Alex Mcleish.

21 May 2019 20:21:31
COYBIG they should be looking for the best they can get no matter what job he's in IMO.

21 May 2019 20:51:15
Fair enough Kev, it’s an opinion, as is mine. It may seem a bit defeatist, but I’m not sure any manager can get us to a major tournament now. If I’m right about that, it would make more sense to leave Clark at Kilmarnock where we he could continue to enhance our game and appoint someone who’s out of work. Terry, no!

21 May 2019 21:24:02
Clarke was always leaving killie . i for 1 want scotland to do well and think it would have been stupid for scotland to miss this chance at a decent manager . for once they have got their finger out and made the right appointment . sacking strachan was a mistake as he done not too bad but he was getting to that stubborn strachan era so i can see why he got the boot also . hopefully bowie will fund another good manager to keep killie on the right footing as we do need progressive clubs in scotland for us all to improve . on the fact of them bringing the game into disrepute . they've been doing that since they found out rangers was dying then carried it on to confer the tainted titles to newco . so ye they should all be charged 😂
Hail hail.

21 May 2019 21:26:08
How often hv Killie taken points from old firm over last 18 months. Got to think Clarke can set us up to nick results against higher ranked nations instead of the cannon fodder under EBT.

21 May 2019 21:49:41
I think he’ll do well. Whether he can get us to a major tournament is another story but I hope he proves me wrong. I think we all know that managing the national side is a different kettle of fish to club management. Despite my opposition to this, I’ll be right behind him and I hope Griff will get back to full fitness to take part in it with him.

21 May 2019 21:50:48
I think we have the players to do a lot better than we have of late and Clarke is a manager that will organise them properly.

22 May 2019 00:04:11
Think he had decided to go back down sarf, anyway, so maybe he let the SFA know this, and that's why they could appoint him as Scotland manager without having quibbles about weakening one of the Scottish clubs.

22 May 2019 00:05:18
Good post buddy. Im happy with clarke as new manger excited to watch scotland games again. But as you says it has weaken kilmarnock wile they were improveing our league and makeing it more intresting and could have done well in europe next season with clark. Something our league needs. Think scottish football as a whole should be pushing sky for more money and i mean everyone invovled with scottish football. How much alone to do think they make off our old firm games. People like hugh keevins saying the money sky give our league is not scraps.

22 May 2019 00:06:55
Terry, but there is no OF, just a Glasgow Derby with the new boys on the block.

21 May 2019 23:44:15
Terry Munroe, who is the old firm? I have to say Clarke's standing at the moment is very high . Will it be the same in two years time . ? I doubt it .
The biggest problem Clarke and Celtic has, is if Clarke wants to have the best Scottish players playing their best football, he is going to want very many Celtic players playing at their best in friendlies and competitive games . He will want to develop best playing style to suit the style he thinks best .
Celtic have too many games in a season and half our players will have many more .

Just one other point, he should pick Dembele for Scotland's first competitive game and bring him on for as little as last minute and Scotland has Dembele for his whole career.

21 May 2019 16:59:33
Scott brown player manager just got the sh:ts and giggles.

Agree0 Disagree0

21 May 2019 17:36:02
With Moyes as DOF I think would be a great appointment.

21 May 2019 19:23:15
Away yeez go. What qualifies brown to manage celtic. No chance.

21 May 2019 20:35:03
Moyes as DOF and brown as manager! your surely having a laugh! Talk about a bad idea! 🤦🏻‍♂️.

21 May 2019 22:30:35
This has got to be a wind up.

21 May 2019 19:45:10
The crazy season starts before the season ends have fun ed 😂.

{Ed007's Note - 😢😢 😱😱

22 May 2019 09:54:54
It was just a joke guys calm down but to be fair what qualified Lennon first time round or for that mater slippy g? At least brown knows what it’s like to win a league . Just to be clear am not want this to happen but the orcs would go into meltdown.
