Bhoys and ghirls I'm starting to wonder if these top players we are all talking about will only come with CL? Hh.

Agree2 Disagree2

23 Jun 2017 07:30:24
That's usually the case but if they signed for us and played the qualifiers it would give us an even better chance.

23 Jun 2017 08:08:50
I'm comfortable with the situation, I'm sure quality signings will come in when we need it i. e once CL qualification is secured. Nobody apart from Paddy has left so we have more than enough to stroll things domestically again. Could be a lot worse if we were filling our squad with 2nd rate Brazillian speaking Portuguese Mexican players that nobody else wanted.

23 Jun 2017 12:25:48
Ano what your all saying trhoops just not used to not hearing anything papers are just full of s***e as always ahhhhh can't handle this lol in Brendan we trust hh.

23 Jun 2017 20:55:00
The bromance is dead as you can't afford Roberts. I wonder if young Tiernay will be as affectionate with that well known looker Hayes! 😳.

22 Jun 2017 20:07:09
Saw a article that China under 20s are entering the 4th Teri of German football
Where does this put cross border competition etc.

{Ed007's Note - It won't have any effect, the matches will basically be friendlies with no points at stake.}

Agree1 Disagree0

22 Jun 2017 20:50:34
Mark my words guys the Chinese will be running football shortly. A Chinese team in Champions League? Why not given some of the countries who have teams in it now.

23 Jun 2017 01:26:25
Nothing like some casual racism on a Thursday evening!

23 Jun 2017 05:51:45
In 10 years China will be dominating Snooker. Would not be surprised if it was the case with football also with the cash they are putting into it and the coaches they are taking over. Kids football training looks like a military exercise dicipline is as important as quality. I'm sure i read their ultimate goal is to win the World Cup. AC Milan will no doubt be in with a chance of signing an up and coming superstar shirt sales would be mind boggling.

{Ed001's Note - the new Milan owner has borrowed from a very aggressive hedge fund to buy the club, they are more likely to be working on paying that back in the short term.}

23 Jun 2017 07:13:20
A Hedge fund, They will need to shift a few Bonsai to get Dembele then.

23 Jun 2017 20:51:34
That puts a different slant on things! ☘️.

23 Jun 2017 20:53:12
Not too far away with Karaganday being involved in European football.

22 Jun 2017 19:14:22
Ed have you heard anything about a move for Holger Badstuber?

{Ed007's Note - No. If he is over his long term injury problems I expect Guardiola will be interested in taking him to Man City.}

Agree0 Disagree1

22 Jun 2017 13:31:10
lads has any1 any idea what is going to happen if l*nfield get through the 1st round qualifying and we get them?

Agree3 Disagree4

22 Jun 2017 13:41:21
yes, apparently Celtic play them over two legs.

22 Jun 2017 13:51:35
alright smart arse. I was asking a genuine question because of the dates of the 1st leg.

22 Jun 2017 16:39:51
Looking like it will be Friday the 14th . thought we were playing Lyon on the 15th so who knows.

23 Jun 2017 08:20:59
Looks like we are not going to take ticket allocation for the away game. Really not fussed at that idea as there will still be the atmosphere for real trouble, plus it means we are not giving a club with such beliefs any of our money.

23 Jun 2017 16:28:37
if that mob can't fulfil the fixture on the exact date for security reasons they should be threw out the tournament end of story.

23 Jun 2017 20:53:20
@tompo88 - and yet you fall over yourselves to get tickets for Rangers games? What a nonsensical post!

24 Jun 2017 12:06:24
I think you'll find UJ that I step foot in any establishment that thinks the pre match entertainment of the Shankhill Defenders flute band is acceptable before and football match. Ibrox included so wind your neck in. If I want to see your mob getting a pumping Paradise suits me fine.

22 Jun 2017 08:18:42
Did anybidy see the legend that is tam boyd having a go at the impartial sfa clown mcrae for wantiñ just sevco to improve next season well done tam always sticking up for the champs.

Agree14 Disagree4

23 Jun 2017 16:33:41
TB like another TB we knew and loved is one of our own and one of life's good guys! Celtic through and through. ☘️.

21 Jun 2017 20:58:09
Do people really think because the press can't tell us who Celtic are looking to sign means the board are not working on signings?

Agree4 Disagree15

21 Jun 2017 22:48:12
Not one bit Kev . In fact I am more annoyed when I read that Celtic are interested in such and such a player. More than likely nonsense.

23 Jun 2017 11:25:02
History of the board does not fare well mate simple. I am heart to be convinced. Tell
You what i may be proven wrong, but a don't think we will break our transfer record, lawell has his story ready, we can't compete with the rest of Europe or epl. see it right now easy way out. Yes I do think they will buy one or two squad players, but only once they sell a few.

23 Jun 2017 11:32:02
If memory serves me correctly, all of last years signings were very hush hush until they were in the bag.

Have to be confident Brendans being backed by the board but I don't think we'll see anyone else in before the last qualifiers at the earliest. Although could be wrong.

But reastically we aren't exactly a team in tatters. Main squad seems to be getting kept, any coming in need to be first team ready and be an improvement on who's in an already more than decent, invincible, treble winning side.

21 Jun 2017 18:33:55
Guys, bredan always said when asked last year that they would be 2 or 3 players max brought in this summer, we have JH so far. He also said that the players had to be for the first team and bedded in during pre season. Peter Liewell is selling him short.

Agree6 Disagree15

21 Jun 2017 19:26:05
How'd dyu know that the transfer windows open till the end of August have some patience lad.

21 Jun 2017 20:55:25
Pre season started this week. You'd do know that negotiations take time?

21 Jun 2017 21:25:41
They've been back at work 3 days man, calm the beans.

Look at the mess across the city - they are salivating because Mike Ashley is only taking half their merchandise sales for the next year.

I'd have Lawwell over any of the Chief Execs in Scotland any day of the week.

I don't think the board will scrimp this summer. The team is in a good place, only quality improvements on those on their way out are needed. Much prefer this approach than panicking and splashing out like the early 2000s.

21 Jun 2017 21:46:29
Guys, Brendan is on record saying he wants the new players in for pre season starting. it's started!

21 Jun 2017 22:51:03
Dafabet, I thought it was Rangers fans who because they were green with envy called our CEO. MR Liewell.

21 Jun 2017 22:57:54
With all the goodwill in the world we cannot make players sign to suit our time-scale.

21 Jun 2017 23:08:37
Chris, tell me one thing I have said in the above posts are not true.

21 Jun 2017 23:27:19
I agree with Dafabet, pre season started and only Hayes signed, poor stuff. Rodgers said wanted 3 quality signings in for pre season, I would of thought some homework would of been done and had them lined up a while back, hopefully I'm wrong but the usual traditions at celtic being sold short.

21 Jun 2017 23:31:53
Airs not always a matter of true or untrue . Sometimes buying a footballer is more complicated than buying a loaf .
Surely it's more important that Brendan gets the players he wants than signing any Tom, Dick or Harry to suit u.

22 Jun 2017 00:48:03
Number 1 target is Roberts, no question. If we don't get him it will sting but I'd rather the time and effort was put in there before we gave up and signed Januzaj or such on a big contract, with no guarantee of success.

I'd say there are 6 scenarios we are looking at this window:

1. Qualify for groups, sell Dembelé, VVD moves
2. Fail to qualify, sell Dembelé, VVD moves
3. Qualify for groups, keep Dembelé, VVD moves
4. Fail to qualify, keep Dembelé, VVD moves
5. Qualify for groups, sell Dembelé, VVD stays
6. Fail to qualify, keep Dembelé, VVD stays

We don't know the outcomes for either of these 3 situations, and I guarantee you there's planned targets for for each outcome.

We shouldn't panic unless Paddy signs elsewhere and there's no plan B.

22 Jun 2017 09:00:29
@chris how do we know Brendan isn't missing out on players he wants? He says he wants brown and Armstrong signed up but they aren't yet. i don't want Celtic to do what we've all seen before resting on our laurels we should be pushing forward not standing still or even going backwards. If we don't voice our concerns about our lack of progress then don't go bleating if we don't reach champions league or players leave for nothing.

22 Jun 2017 23:44:29
Honest mistake . You are right Roberts should be our number 1 target
However I hope the club don't put all their eggs in the Roberts basket . We need to be working on and signing other priority targets and at the same time keep letting those that matter we are interested in Roberts .
We cannot guarantee that we can sign guarantee that we will sign Roberts, sometimes a player can be out of our reach.

21 Jun 2017 16:06:10
As far as our CL draw goes I don't know why Linfield don't ask to play the home game at the crumble dome win, win as far as I can see Servco get to listen to the CL music and will be a lot safer for all and Linfield will get the money they look for and get to play at the crumble dome.

Agree2 Disagree2

21 Jun 2017 17:24:39
SAFER at the crumbledome!? Lol.

21 Jun 2017 17:34:55
I get your point wyllie lol but yes I think for all concerned it would be can't see them asking or it happening but I do think it would be safer.

{Ed007's Note - If Linfield can't guarantee Celtic's officials and fans safety they should withdraw or be kicked out of the competition. Here's the Regs that cover it:

7.01 The clubs are responsible for the behaviour of their players, officials, members,
supporters and any person carrying out a function at a match on their behalf.

7.02 The home club (or the host association) is responsible for order and security
before, during and after the match. The home club (or the host association) may
be called to account for incidents of any kind and may be disciplined.

21.01 All matches are played according to the UEFA Match Calendar.
These dates are final and binding on all concerned, subject to the provisions
of Paragraph 22.01 to Paragraph 22.04. The following principles apply to this

a. UEFA Champions League matches are played on Tuesdays and Wednesdays,
with the exception of the final, which is played on a Saturday.

22.01 The venues, dates and kick-off times for matches in the three qualifying rounds are fixed by each home club and must be confirmed and communicated to the UEFA administration in writing by theirassociations by the deadline set by the UEFA administration. The UEFA administration may alter or confirm dates and kick-off times according to the principles set by the Club Competitions Committee.

22.02 The UEFA administration decides on match dates and fixture reversals on a case by case basis, according to the principles set by the Club Competitions
Committee. The UEFA administration reserves the right to impose a match date in
the event of clashes between matches in this competition and other UEFA club
competition matches.}

21 Jun 2017 18:54:59
There can be a lot of genuine reasons why a fixture might have to be moved, but moving a match so a lot of bigots in bowler hats and sashes can march around intimidating people shouldn't be one of them.
Linfield should be ordered to play the match on the original date, if they can't, then as ED says they should forfeit the match.

{Ed007's Note - Spot on, Gerry.}

21 Jun 2017 20:18:39
Well that's them FD lol.

{Ed007's Note - It's only a week ago that a 63-year-old Orange scumbag who had been previously convicted of gun offences was found guilty of driving his car into a group of people including a then 16-year-old girl - she was knocked down and then driven over shattering her pelvis and fracturing her ankle and collarbone - and 2 police officers during the July 12th "celebrations" two years ago. An act that should have been treated as a terrorist attack going by what's happened around the world.
Are Celtic and their supporters really expected to put their lives at risk by going over there? UEFA need to step in to this as soon as the tie is finalised if Linfield go through.}

21 Jun 2017 22:59:45
This man was released on bail prior to sentencing . No doubt to give him his big day out in July.

{Ed007's Note - I noticed that, Chris, that's a shocking decision considering what the judge said at the end about his sentencing and that the case was so harrowing she excused the jury from further jury service for life. Let's hope he's banged up for a long time very soon, the world will be a far better place with scumbags like that locked up.}

22 Jun 2017 23:47:10
There was a photo in the local press where he was seen marching with one of the negotiators currently at Downing St .

23 Jun 2017 11:23:19
Hit the nail on the head Gerry. Play on the 12th or go feckn paddle in the Boyne preferably without water wings! ☘️.

23 Jun 2017 11:24:35
The venues, dates and times are fixed by the home clubs, so does that not mean it's up to Linfield when and where they play their home leg?

23 Jun 2017 23:27:30
True but UEFA had designated 11th and 12th for the first leg .
However the 1690 men said NO .
I would have thought game should have been played in the Aviva on either of original dates.

Morning Lads, i've seen a lot of rumours about loan players coming in, Correct me if im wrong but im sure BR said he wasnt looking to sign players on loan, I agree 100%, Unless there's a buy option, Also loving the fact that the press have no clue to who we are after so just spew mince for clickbait. Have a good day chaps.

Agree4 Disagree5

21 Jun 2017 23:02:12
Circumstances can change and I would be surprised if Brendan didn't do what he thought was best for Celtic at any given time.
