Well that's my fiend on his way back down to England having visited family and friends up here, Mrs T gave him a send off lunch then I took him to airport. He told me he sometimes read the Celtic banter pages but never knew "Timalloy" was me, he promised to read it more often from now on.
Over lunch he told me some other wee snippets of information. Apparently, Brendan is aware that some fans do not rate John Kennedy as a coach, and that he only got job out of sympathy. But my friend said, Kennedy gives good input and is not afraid to speak his mind, and also being younger is more on the same wavelength as the players which Brendan thinks is a plus. But Kennedy and the other coaches carry out the manager's instructions on the training pitch.
My friend then told me that although the manager is confident of players coming in, we, the fans, should NOT be expecting big money signings, the manager said signing Odsonne was only made possible by other monies coming in to club, like VVD extra money and better sponsorship revenues.
Players WILL come in, but on the current wage structure and probably only 2/ 3 in January, with perhaps the same number leaving the club.
Apparently plans are well in place and "Mr Lawwell knows who I would like" said the manager, so we will see what transpires.
My friend said that Brendan was surprised of the impact Stevie Gee has made, but jokingly added "he could hardly make things WORSE"
I asked how the manager felt about the way our players were treated by McLeish but my friend said Brendan had his own thoughts but left all decisions to the likes of Griffiths, Tierney, Forrest and Gordon etc.
My friend left me in a positive state of mind and said "IF the manager gets what he wants, watch Celtic GO".

I like the positive spin but a few of BR's signings leave a lot to be desired.
(not having a pop at BR as I think he has done a marvelous job. I would have loved to see BR as manager and Delia alongside as assistant)

Tim, I don't know who you know so I can't comment on that but I do think you try to make yourself the centre of attraction in many of your posts. No offence intended, absolutely none at all, and I'll be happy to hold my hands up and admit I'm wrong but your 'seance' with your mates is just sounding a wee bit far fetched. HH.

Bob the Cat, totally agree. Ed should retire and leave the site to Tim!

Can't believe the hype around Eric Dier making a tackle his Tottenham manager has even said how proud he was a footballer making a tackle is astounding stuff.

I see the Irish FA have stopped Lafferty from the sevco team after he withdrew from their squad. wonder if the SFA will try the same with the Celtic players.

Just had a look at the fixture list, and noticed that since playing Kilmarnock on September 23 until rosenborg on November 29 we will have played 14 games and only 4 of those games were at Celtic Park. that's an incredible fixture list. oldkilly.

Ha ha ha there is no anger like a Sevconian.
Following on the news that the NI football association have invoked the 5 day rule for big Laughatme, my two ex bear/ Wigan/ Chelsea/ Scottish fans want McLeish to do the same with Griffiths AND Tierney for the Hibs game.

TIM we should learn to never make them angry! When they get angry they stay angry for (2018-1690) 328 years. ☘️.

LG left immediately and did not claim an injury
KT Left on THEIR medics instructions saying fatigue.
NEITHER player claimed injury.

18 Oct 2018 09:44:45
Surely 2012 -1690?

18 Oct 2018 15:33:45
In addition, (correct me if I am wrong) is there not a 5 day limit on being able to invoke this rule.
Scotland played on the Sunday so it would not affect our played anyway.

More pearls of wisdom from Chico now saying Lennon on line to replace Brendan if he leaves whod have thunk it.

So despite much boasting from both Hearts and the Scottish media, it seems that there are going to be rows and rows of empty seats, AGAIN in a semi final, as the "fantastic" jambos support are only likely to sell 20,000 of their allocated 30,000. But they and the SPFL DO NOT WANT Celtic fans to buy these spare tickets. Could you see that happening with the Sevco fans allocation. NO? me neither.

Tim, I'm sure i read they are having the same issue with the sheep. Stupid really, why they are getting that size of allocation when they have no intention of filling it.

17 Oct 2018 16:56:21
There will be rows of empty seats due to Aberdeen’s selling policy.

17 Oct 2018 17:02:30
Just read that article on video celts. They only want seats next to the Celtic fans. They could have sold from the corners going northward which would have given us more ticket's. The money from tickets sales from all 4 clubs will be split evenly after ground rates and costs are deducted. I wonder who crunches the numbers and who then oversees them!

17 Oct 2018 17:03:25
@DB92 point I was making was that a deadline was given to Aberdeen to sell all their allocation, otherwise sevco got more tickets. To the best of my knowledge NO SUCH AGREEMENT is in place for Celtic fans to buy any unsold tickets.

17 Oct 2018 17:04:04
It's pathetic, considering it's a 'home' tie for Levein's louts.
The Celtic team has carried Scottish football on it's back in Europe for over a decade and our support have helped fill every stadium in the country week-in, week-out so ticket allocation should reflect the demand of true fans and regular payees - not p/t glory hunters.

17 Oct 2018 17:05:32
Some might say that you’re paranoid, Tim. Others might point to the fact that Sevco have already been given more tickets than the sheep, but the SFA still see the need to write to them to express their displeasure at the way they are selling ‘THEIR’ tickets. Maybe I’m paranoid as well but to me, that does seem to show a degree of favouritism towards the tribute act.

I wonder if Waddel in the press will write a page attacking Anne Budge the way he has attacked Stewart Milne?

Make no mistake about it, the rag dolling of Milne was a deliberate strategy to unnerve him to surrender 10,000 briefs for TRFC fans.

If Budge doesn’t return 10,000 briefs for Celtic fans will Waddel rag doll her in the press? Or praise her wonderful contribution to the game?

This is the guy who lifts text verbatim from blogs and changes a word here or there (to benefit TRFC) and prints it as his original work.

This is the guy who basically said **** sporting integrity when the spl / sfa were dealing with the old RFC club death in 2012.

Sporting integrity dictates clubs get equal ticket numbers and if unsold so be it. One club should not have the advantage of much more fans in support.

The spfl already bent the semi by giving sevco 26,000 briefs upfront and tried to reduce Aberdeen’s 20,000. That’s the SPFL itself rubbishing sporting integrity for sevco benefit.

Here’s a solution; choose the stadium size to match predicted turnout.

Predict smallest club turnout. Double it. Add in hangers on/ media/ corporate briefs. And choose a neutral ground with that capacity. Hence an evenly supported full stadium.

It’s not rocket science. But we've got buffoons running the game.

Should the SPFL deliver Sporting Integrity or maximum seat sales?

That’s the basic conflict.

Until you discover they don’t apply the same standard applied to Sevco when dealing with Celtic.

Clearly seat sales should come second. But the people running the game care not a jot, and never have, about sporting integrity.

The SFA and SPFL have for years had a bookies representative on their boards to deliver the bookies demands. This was in return for sponsorship money. Fans interests were never represented.

Ironic, isn’t it, that the bookies get board members and power and influence through giving away fans lost bets money, but the fans get no influence over the SFA/ SPFL at all.

Full stadiums have more captured punters for bookies, just like racecourses. Footballers are the new Nags.

I always wondered what rhymed with Wags.

Disappointed with ma club if there are extra seats give them to any fan Celtic or hearts and as for the new co and sheep who gives a f@ck lol.

I heard on the radio this morning that the average age of the England team that had just beaten Spain was 23, and then it said that McLeish was thinking about bringing back Stephen Fletcher, it was just gone six o clock, so maybe I was dreaming.
