Today is the 40th Anniversary of the famous 4-2 game. It was Celtic last game of the season and only a victory would guarantee the title.2 goals in the last 5 minutes and the league title was ours.
The old club only needed a draw and then it would have been in their own hands because they had a further 2 matches to play. We won the league on a Monday night and only 2 nights later the old club were home to Partick Thistle and it went down as their worst home league attendance in their history only 2,500 heartbroken fans made the game which they won 1-0 incidentally they lost the last game anyway against Hibs 2-1.
The old club were 5 minutes away playing against 10 men from keeping their title hopes alive yet a couple of nights later they have their worst attendance in their history. They went from the chance of a full house to 2,500 fans in the space of 5 minutes. They must have been devastated.

Today is the 50th Anniversary of the old club being called britains shame after 2,000 fans stormed the pitch after Newcastle went 2-0 up causing 20 minutes delay.
They didn't stop there because pubs, shops and even private homes had their windows smashed in a night of more shame because it was only 6 years previously the same happened when the old club played Wolves, they ran riot in the city centre and that is why their fans are now called huns. The local paper in Wolverhampton said the old clubs fans were behaving like a pack of huns.

22 May 2019 00:01:13
When is the Manchester anniversary?

21 May 2019 15:03:03
The Rafa dream looks dead. reports suggesting he's agreed to stay at Newcastle.
I would take Lennon over Moyes and avb.
If we are still scouting players without a manager David Turnbull has to be on our radar.
A big talent. good game time under his belt. good goals tally.
What's your thoughts on the boy ed.

21 May 2019 15:14:23
What a shock thought he was a stick on 🤤🤤.

21 May 2019 15:29:56
Lennon will be nowhere near job.

21 May 2019 15:44:10
Lennon over AVB?

21 May 2019 15:54:11
Am kinda struggling to see the fuss over AVB or Moyes for that matter.

21 May 2019 16:31:41
I'm beginning to think it will be someone who has not even been suggested and I would not be surprised if a deal was done months ago.

21 May 2019 16:51:40
Here's hoping Phil. The good ones are unrealistic and the realistic ones aren't good so far.

21 May 2019 16:55:26
JJ AVBs record is great.

21 May 2019 17:22:28
Arsene Wenger anyone?

21 May 2019 17:26:18
Hopefully JimTim.

21 May 2019 23:47:06
It's between Lennon and Moyes with others like Pardew in with a chance .
I think some of us got carried away with the names that MSSM bandied about . We should know better.

21 May 2019 12:55:17
Does anyone know of any Celtic pubs in Sunny Beach Bulgaria for the final on Saturday?

21 May 2019 12:54:44
Adi Hutter is my first choice seeing as we're hoying our own names in the hat.

21 May 2019 13:37:02
Julian Spartan manager at Rennes took them too Europa League Quarters gave Arsenal a really good game and should have won.

21 May 2019 14:21:33
There is no chance in rafa or Mourinho. If we are naming managers like that then I want Guardiola.

21 May 2019 10:48:44
Ed007 if I remember posted that it that time it could be down to Clarke and Lennon so if that was right we should not be surprised when or if Lennon will be appointed.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 May 2019 11:05:21
If Lennon, why wait?
Serves no purpose if he had the job it would have been announced by now to remove any uncertainty.

Don’t see him getting it, treble or not.

21 May 2019 11:27:01
Perhaps the club were willing to see how Lennon got on? Or to see if any other targets were interested in the time being?

21 May 2019 11:34:12
that's a damn reasonable point 10-i-a-r-b-4-u-no.

21 May 2019 12:55:38
Heard a few times from different people that NL had been told that his contract was up to and including the Cup Final; so that there was no misguidance, shocks or disappointment on both sides.
The speculation over the past few weeks has been partly driven by supporters wish-list, bookies looking to fleece people and guesswork.
I have no idea who will be 'unveiled' - although (unfortunately) there is a lot of murmurings about Moyes; however, at this time of the year with contracts ending and clubs looking to maybe change direction, here's hoping the club have looked at ALL possible options.

21 May 2019 14:51:14
As you all know Lenny not for me for the job and if the rumour was true about him getting in the face of a young Celtic player then that's another reason for me not to want him as manager there is passion and there is bullying Not for me.

21 May 2019 16:38:26
Tony2bhoy I agree, this is another reason why it won't be Lennon as club won't want to jepordise the successful policy of developing youth players. They will also want a manager who actually has some tactical awareness about them so that definitely rules Lennon out.

21 May 2019 23:55:18
Don't believe rumours, how many time have rumours turned out to have been started by MSSM or Rangers2012 fans, stupid me they are the same thing )

There is many young players at many clubs that the manager getting into his face would be the right and proper thing . We have had them at Celtic Pk, Mosunda, Ferez Watt and many more highly talented individuals that managers had to bite their tongue and let the young rubbishs destroy their career before it started.

21 May 2019 08:24:59
OK Welshbhoy give us the heads up.
What ARE the Green Brigade planning for the cup final with their TIFO lol.

Agree0 0Disagree

21 May 2019 11:32:26
It's not really for a TIFO the money was collected for a hitman to take out some of the candidates for the managers job lol.

20 May 2019 20:40:43
Now we are leading up to cup final I predict that come Friday the big leak will come out and new manager/ DOF will be named? To try put everyone off at Celtic from winning the cup. Just my opinion.

Agree3 2Disagree

20 May 2019 20:49:11
Said this earlier on rumour page rich wouldn't surprise me mate.

20 May 2019 21:06:53
The media can only announce the new manager or DOF's name if it's leaked by someone from within the club. Why would anyone from Celtic want to put Celtic off winning the treble?

20 May 2019 21:20:36
I would not be surprised. I have been checking out the odds for the job Lennon has never outside the top 4 names tipped for the job with Rafa there too could it be possible we could actually get Rafa? For me I think it’s down to either Lennon or Rafa. What do use guys think Eds?

20 May 2019 22:12:23
ye kev think so.

20 May 2019 22:35:54
There is always a 'story' before a big game and there will be some sort of attempted distraction/ scandal printed before Friday.

20 May 2019 22:46:32
Ritch T there’s no chance Rafa Benitez is coming to Celtic mate! I see Uve mentioned it a few times on here but please spare urself the disappointment mate. rafa Mourinho and I seen Sutton mentioned Allegri from Juve today! This is Scotland we’re in lads and these guys will not come here! One we can’t afford there wage,2 we couldn’t afford there transfer budgets and 3 our league is mediocre at best! Not having a go at all just let’s get a bit of realism eh!

21 May 2019 07:09:52
Originally I had guessed that Lennon would be announced this week after the league was wrapped up. Not something I particularly wanted, but with talk of David Moyes I'd have Lenny in a heartbeat over him.

21 May 2019 08:11:27
So if not a Rafa or JM where do we really start to look at Moyes or give the job to Lennon. I might be living in coo coo land there is nothing wrong with trying to do better showing ambition like we did with Rodgers I would like to think that the board may have that same ambition but we will see?

21 May 2019 10:08:15
It's not whether the board show ambition. Its whether these names want to come to us. Sutton has said we approached JM but it ain't going to happen. I would have preferred Clarke over Lennon personally, but prefer both to Moyes. I wouldn't mind a bilic, Houghton or bielsa. I think being realistic bielsa is my preferred choice.

21 May 2019 10:39:22
Anno bielsa done well elsewhere but his age and the language us he's just failed to get Leeds even into the play offs so not sure the of the clamour for this guy.

21 May 2019 10:46:38
Lennon has been in job before, won 3 leagues with zero competition, failed big time in cup competitions, football was dire and he failed to really inspire the fans or the team.
I can’t see how he will be any better now plus we have much stronger competition from across the city.
He’s had his day, time for different direction.
Moyes? He’s had years of managing in a high quality competitive league at a level Lennon will never be offered.

If forced to choose between the two it would be moyes for me.

21 May 2019 14:38:08
You obviously haven't really thought this through have you?

If that information was leaked, it would need to be leaked from within the club. So someone in the club would do this to try and disrupt the cup final preparations.

I cannot believe that some people would be such avid conspiracy theorists that they would even suggest this.

21 May 2019 14:39:20
I think someone of the calibre of AVB or Rafa could be tempted by the lure of having a chance to get big European clubs' attention again by taking us on a run in Europa or get some results in Champs League like Strachan or Lennon did before the game went totally mad financially.

The safety of us having a low interest in domestic cups next year and the budget we fans feel the board should invest to secure the 10 might be a good carrot.

One of these guys would be guaranteed a couple of medals plus a choice for their next big job. I might be too optimistic but it's an attractive job for managers who can't get an EPL top 6 gig.

20 May 2019 19:23:43
Seen that wee dembele kid awesome next week would love to beat u lot but what a thing to do the treble treble would not feel bad if u lot won think u will we are mince and would be great to see a treble but sorry lads ma wife and family are tic fans have to hope we can do it.

Agree5 3Disagree

20 May 2019 21:10:19
Kenny, it’s a cup final. I know we go in as strong favourites but I also remember as an 8 year old in 1971, lying on the couch in tears listening to the commentary on the radio as Patrick Thistle demolished Celtic in the League Cup final. That Celtic team had Jimmy Johnstone, Kenny Dalglish, Bobby Murdoch, Tommy GemmilLou Macari, George Connolly in it. It was only a year after we’d humbled the mighty Leeds Utd in the semi final of the big cup. I hope we do complete the treble treble on Saturday as it’s something special that will probably never be repeated but I’m taking nothing for granted. Whatever happens, enjoy the game and let’s hope everyone goes home safely.

21 May 2019 14:39:24
Anything can happen in a cup game, but I don't think there will be any upsets this time.

20 May 2019 19:21:48
Not sure where the moyes talk came from but surely we must look away from the usual candidates

David turnbull would be someone we should snap up as soon as possible. Energy, goals, can pick a pass and knows the league. Would be crazy to miss out on him.

Agree3 0Disagree

20 May 2019 19:33:42
Good call Kieran, I suggested turnbull a few weeks ago scores a lot from midfield could be a real steal 👍.

20 May 2019 21:08:08
The more dross that Ntcham serves up leads me to think why not take Porto's money and bring in Turnbull with a bit to spare.

21 May 2019 03:02:00
Definitely looks a talent Chris. In the ideal scenario would be buy him and loan them Mikey for 6 months/ year now that Hastie is away

Ntcham showed glimpses of what he’s capable of again on Sunday but not consistent enough this year. He’s still young and there’s certainly a great player there.

21 May 2019 08:50:29
He’s a talent - keep him.

20 May 2019 18:09:40
Wouldn't mind Moyes in as a DOF IF we bring in a decent head coach.

Lennon is too hot headed, which at times can be a good thing, but there's been too many instances of him falling out with players and not treating player correctly.

Bring in a good coach to deal with the team and let Moyes deal with the transfers.

Agree4 0Disagree

20 May 2019 18:54:18
Lennons subs tactics and selections are bizarre IF he was still at Hibs would we be wanting him?!?

20 May 2019 19:14:16
I wouldn't have Moyes in to clean the bogs. Moyes could be the rests best chance of stopping the 10, when was the last time this guy had any kind of success? On top of that he has in the past shunned us and is as charismatic as a brick. Just no no no no 😠😠😠.

20 May 2019 20:06:39
Lenny has been calmer in the dug out than I've ever seen him.

20 May 2019 20:07:33
Moyes and Lennon might even split the dressing room as much as the support going by mixed opinions and comments.

20 May 2019 20:26:44
Holy Mary Mother of God don’t give Davie Moyes the nod.

20 May 2019 20:50:14
Jesus Mary and Joseph am with you jfp.

20 May 2019 22:31:07
Robdoc, I imagine the Board will decide who they want as manager based on facts and not on rumours started by anti Lennon critics .
Although I think N L could well be one of the best men for the job, I hope he doesn't get it as too many fans have already decided he isn't the right man for the job and will give him and the team dog's abuse even if he is winning the games .
I just couldn't go on to Celic Social media with so much negativity in it.

21 May 2019 06:35:47
If you look at Moyes signings in the past it's clear he can uncover a gem fellaini, mirallas, seamus Coleman, Leighton baines etc.

Lennon's tactical ability is lacking as we've seen in recent games and the only reason he's been "calm in the dugout" as you say mally is clearly because he's been told he isn't getting the job.

Chris, I don't think it's rumours started my anti Lennon supporters. If it is then there's been anti Lennon supporters at every club he's managed who all happen to come up with very similar stories and manage to get players and staff to confirm it.

As much as I love lenny for what he's done for the club, he's not the man to take the club forward. However, this new look setup of a DOF and head coach is working elsewhere in Europe so why not give it a go?
