Correct Score Competition Entry

The toughest thing about gameshows is when a topic comes up that you just don't have the foggiest about. For Wednesday night's contestant her dreaded subject was football, but she needn't have worried - her boyfriend had come up with an ingenious plan.
Loved this wee snippet in the ET.
When Tasha and Jo went on Pointless, Tasha's boyfriend Alex gave her a solid piece of advice: when in doubt, answer Henrik Larsson.

And it certainly was a stellar recommendation. The show was looking for any goal-scorer in Euro 2000, and the girls went on to win a jackpot of £2,250 with an answer of none other than "Henrik Larsson" - which was both right and pointless.

So we have reportedly held back £40k from ticket sales as Sevco had not paid for the damage caused by their "supporters" at Parkhead. A Sevco spokesman is now claiming that there was damage caused at ibrokes and they are still assessing this. Why are we only hearing about this now? I heard that there were only two roof tiles damaged in a toilet but more significantly everyone saw the damage we did on the park.

Hopefully the Celtic Board challenge them to provide evidence of this so called damage that made them withhold money for so long.

Agree4 Disagree2

12 Jan 2017 22:03:54
I think Celtic should jut go to the SFA and get them to get the money if not take them to Court

12 Jan 2017 22:12:02
Let them keep it and use it as an excuse not to give them tickets to the next game at home.
Would be cracking to fill paradise to the brim with our own fans especially if it's title day

12 Jan 2017 22:23:57
Apparently according to a news paper Celtic have held back the money for the repairs from the ticket money that they were due to send to new Co. And they are not happy about it if true so funny good on Celtic

13 Jan 2017 08:13:37
Pathetic really, if any damage had been done there would have been an outcry before the Bells! What are they going to do? Smash up their own toilets and photograph it to get withold 40k from us? If they do so, it will probably cover their squad's wages for next 2 months!

13 Jan 2017 09:24:06
If there was even a floater left in the cludgie there would have been uproar and gnashing of fangs - just like there was with the alleged culprit at the minutes silence.
Anything and everything to detract from our victory and the humongous points gap that the result produced.
Celtic are 100% correct to hold back that cash until debts and damages are settled; but don't hold your breath as they would probably rather go into administration lol.

13 Jan 2017 09:28:22
I have to say it is strange to not have heard about any vandalism at Ibrokes until now.

13 Jan 2017 09:53:38
I heard different Jim, I have a source who said he seen a bunch of Celtic fans going bezerk and causing £40,000 worth of improvements!

13 Jan 2017 09:59:08
Just highlights the depth of the financial crisis at the new club when you struggle to get 40k out of them. If there was damage at the Sports Direct Stadium then why haven't the new club produced any evidence? New Club same old problems with not paying what they owe. Good on Celtic for taking a stance. I dare say any damage was due to poor maintenance of the stadium.

13 Jan 2017 11:08:16
Only damage i seen done was putting candles in the toilets! . what a disgrace we are tryn to freshen the place up! Bunch eh goats!



13 Jan 2017 12:06:34
just don't let the bastards in its as simple as that then there won't be any damage to our stadium at all.

13 Jan 2017 14:51:37
A was thinking along the same lines James. Ed maybe u could confirm this, a always thought we had a deal wae oldco that any damage done to either stadium would be covered by the club whose fans done the damage. That deal was wae rangers but so unless a new deal was done wae sevco then they're not obliged to pay a penny. Easiest solution is to not let them back unless they pay it.

{Ed007's Note - You're spot on but it was an unwritten agreement, Steph.}

13 Jan 2017 18:12:01
And yet the SFA / SFL say nothing heads buried in the sand hopping all will go away. Give them the money then take them to court freeze there accounts until its sorted out see what the SFA do then

13 Jan 2017 19:02:48
seemingly celtic offered them until last night to provide proof of damage to ibrox but they couldnt.

12 Jan 2017 11:46:32
See young oconnell out on loan.
When does his contract end ed007?

{Ed007's Note - This summer........

Agree2 Disagree5

12 Jan 2017 12:44:36
Hope we tie O'Connell down long term as he looks the part👍

12 Jan 2017 13:41:06

Going out on loan with 6 months left and not having played a first team game for 3 months? It looks like his time is up.

12 Jan 2017 13:41:18
Always impressed me O'Connell. Just a shame there's a few ahead of him.

12 Jan 2017 14:42:03
JimTim. O'Connell has always impressed me also. always looks comfortable in his position. NiallH. you could be right. maybe Brendan wants to see him playing a decent run of games before he decides whether to offer him a new deal.

12 Jan 2017 15:50:11
Would say his time is probably up then.

12 Jan 2017 16:11:21
I think he should have been out on loan earlier in the season to show what he can do because at present he is competing with Eric, Jojo, Toure, Boyata, Ambrose and even Lustig for a central defender slot where we have more quantity than quality and he is by no means worst.

12 Jan 2017 16:40:43
PT with him playing in the CL qualifiers as well as pre-season I think he might have been part of the plans until Jozo ended up staying. Did that deal not collapse right at the end of the window? It'll be desperately unfortunate if that is the last we'll see of him.

12 Jan 2017 18:15:42
I'd imagine he will be offered a new deal if he cuts it down in England, surely he'd have signed on a pre contract (if that is available) . I reckon Brendan will keep a close eye on him

12 Jan 2017 18:17:09
I agree with that Jim as he was certainly ahead of Boyata and Ambrose in the managers eyes at that time.

12 Jan 2017 18:18:21
Really strange how we can't seem to produce our own central defenders anymore which Scotland was generally renowned for ie. McNeil, Miller, McLeish, Gough etc. I watched the young Hoops and had had high hopes for the other Cork lad as well as O''Connell. Cannae remember his name but started wae a K. Kelliger maybe? 🍀

12 Jan 2017 18:27:50
Hegarty, Narey-the list go's on so why not now me doth ponder? 🍀

13 Jan 2017 09:29:24
Kelleher bud. Looks decent from the little I've seen too.

13 Jan 2017 12:23:05
hes on loan at peterhead. i watched one of their games on alba and he didn't look anything special.

12 Jan 2017 01:55:28
rodgers talking about offering a coaching roll to toure.

Agree6 Disagree2

12 Jan 2017 13:43:00
With this news, and us trying to offload Boyata, we might be lining up a blockbuster CB in the summer. Erik, Jozo and maybe young Ajer making up the numbers.

12 Jan 2017 13:56:16

12 Jan 2017 14:15:57
eboue signs he will wear the number 88 jersey.

12 Jan 2017 18:01:45
JB67-I went away tae work today telling everybody Rodgers had offered Toure something tae eat 😀🍀

12 Jan 2017 18:36:03
haha jfp i double pressed the l and didn't even notice until i read the page later on. lol. in fairness big toure looks as if he's ate a few rolls lol.

12 Jan 2017 18:46:06
JB67-the next time ye go oot for a meal ask for the Oasis soup. When they ask whit that is tell them 'Ye get a roll wae it' 😀👍🍀

11 Jan 2017 21:44:41
Anybody hearing of any damage done to paradise due to the weather? Heard sumthin but can't see anythin online

Agree1 Disagree2

11 Jan 2017 22:01:19
A piece of cladding came loose. Not to sure if it had flew off in the high winds or if it was removed

11 Jan 2017 22:07:28
of course its making big noises at ragers as their stadium is actually falling down but it deflects from their misery

"but as we said at the start of the season, second place is seen as success. "

11 Jan 2017 22:26:25
its one panel on the side of the jock stein stand, at least we can afford to get it repaired.

12 Jan 2017 01:48:05
How can Rangers fans laugh? By their logic, even if we replace it, it's the same panel and nothing has changed.

12 Jan 2017 08:59:18
Aye let's not mention the scaffolding inside your stadium right now which has to be removed before every game :)

12 Jan 2017 10:13:14
Thats called maintanence cee, you wouldn't know much about that these days.

12 Jan 2017 12:24:33
Poetic, lovely post man. Over the heads of many Rangers fans, unlike their own stadium roof after the next big storm.

12 Jan 2017 13:05:39
And it's called paying your way although yet to catch on down Govan way

12 Jan 2017 20:55:24
pay the facepainter.

12 Jan 2017 22:07:21
Cee that was a real poor comeback mate just like your present Club

11 Jan 2017 20:00:03
Seen wee bertie of the news tonight talking about the hoops and the way brendan has us playing the celtic way just like big jock preached, he really is a credit to our great club always talking us up GB bertie bhoy

Agree6 Disagree3

11 Jan 2017 21:01:16
his book is a great read mally. the lions will always be legends to us, everyone of them are so humble not like the ignorant footballers of today.

11 Jan 2017 21:41:58
I always enjoy listening to Bertie Auld, he tells some great stories, and his love for the club remains as strong now as when he was a player.
A lot of the modern players will certainly end their careers having earned more money than the Lions, but I doubt that many of them will have the same sense of pride and fondness for their clubs as Bertie and the rest of that team has for ours.

11 Jan 2017 21:44:58
Here here James class everyone of them

12 Jan 2017 12:25:59
Bertie has always told it like it is, ill or good. He has also probably forgotten more about football than most of us know. To top it off, an absolute gent and a credit to our club.

11 Jan 2017 06:56:06
Ed they're saying on talksh1t this morning the sneiderlin to Everton is a done deal. If it happens does that mean they might let mccarthy go and would they let him go cheap or on loan? Cheers

{Ed007's Note - Everton want to move McCarthy on and the player wants out of Everton byut the club are dead set against him going out on loan unless there is a definite sale at the end of it which it seems Newcastle and Aston Villa won't agree to.}

Agree0 Disagree2

10 Jan 2017 22:42:10
Ed, you might know something, now that Everton have got Schneiderlin does it mean we're likely to go for McCarthy? HH

{Ed007's Note - We've already went for McCarthy but now Schneiderlin has signed I expect we'll find out one way or another soon enough if we've been successful.}

Agree1 Disagree3

11 Jan 2017 10:29:45
Looks like biton will be surplus to requirement when eboues work permit goes through, hopefully squeeze a few million out of either a championship or la liga team. That's where I'd imagine he'd go. Espanyol were previously interested apparently.

Agree2 Disagree2

11 Jan 2017 10:51:51
A think he'd be more suited to a slower game, he's definitely got technique. Miby a bottom half premiership team.

11 Jan 2017 12:01:49
bottom half junior team more like lol.

11 Jan 2017 12:05:22
I highly doubt any Premiership team would be interested in him Stephbhoy.

11 Jan 2017 17:36:32
Bitons that slow he could play at centre half for the Huns beside Clint (over the) Hill 🍀

11 Jan 2017 19:01:03
A think some of u r doing him a bit of a disservice. He just doesn't suit the way Rodgers plays, he is slow your right but some systems will benefit his game. The bottom half of the premiership ain't all that. Some of the games are pure dross.

11 Jan 2017 19:13:09
walking football would suit him.

11 Jan 2017 19:27:30
Heartless bastard wanted with no balls and feart of a challenge. Pace not necessary either. Well-that's the advert placed for anybody that's looking at him 🍀

11 Jan 2017 19:28:41
Too feckn fast JB67 🍀

11 Jan 2017 22:09:34
I agree! At one point he was playing well that's why he got his new contract! He's to inconsistent and isn't the CM we need, armstrong is there but I reckon he'll be moved into CAM when eboue signs and rogic will be the rotation. I reckon we'll sign 2 maybe three players this window, and I still think the Right Wing needs a bit of improvement. Forrest isn't exactly consistent himself even tho he's had a decent half season. Roberts is there but he will be gone in 5 months and we really have no back up there after that, id imagine that's the position Rodgers would be looking to strengthen next in my opinion.

11 Jan 2017 22:30:30
lol jfp.

10 Jan 2017 10:49:03
Apparently Kolo is being used as a sort of scout? Do you think this might be his job role with Celtic after this season if it is true?

Is there any truth in this Ed?

{Ed007's Note - First I've heard of it, Toure didn't know who Eboue was until Brendan Rodgers spoke to him about the youngster.}

Agree0 Disagree1

10 Jan 2017 16:13:00
Someone's probably taken it out of context and related back to the youth systems in the Ivory Coast where players like Toure and Gervinho etc came from. Not to sure

10 Jan 2017 16:47:32
its online saying rodgers has asked him to do it i read it earlier.

{Ed007's Note - Have you got a link to it?}

10 Jan 2017 17:37:53
Has Eboue got the work permit yet? The process has taken a while or is this what was expected?

10 Jan 2017 18:24:30
Kolo Toure used as a Celtic super scout.


10 Jan 2017 20:11:50
Sounds like lazy journalism to me again.

Wheres he fae, wheres he fae = story

10 Jan 2017 18:07:46
looked for it again there ed, but i can't find it now, it was one of the stories on news now online. im trying to see if they have an archive.

{Ed007's Note - No worries, James.}

10 Jan 2017 18:22:51
Joe mchugh wrote it on video celts ed, a had a look there. The headline was kolos special role or something like that but it didn't mention any quotes from Rodgers that said anything about scouting role for kolo.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers, Steph got it. I had read THIS which has a bit more from Rodgers in it.}
