A team (and bench) named for attacking and getting the job done.

05 Dec 2017 19:14:19
This imo is our strongest starting 11 swap dembele and griff and that would be what I would go with as much as possible.

05 Dec 2017 19:26:30
Think that is the strongest bench I have seen in years!

05 Dec 2017 22:08:44
Glad bench strong, Sinclair and Armstrong have disappeared for most of this and half of last season.

03 Dec 2017 14:56:54
Riley McGree n Charley Musonda were at Celtic this week.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Dec 2017 22:26:17
I think Musonda would be a massive coup.

03 Dec 2017 23:00:44
How true is this Bhoywonder? And I thought Riley had just moved to Brugge?

04 Dec 2017 08:04:53
I'm calling horse shnit on this one mcgree is at brugge and I'm sure he only joined in the summer.

04 Dec 2017 09:48:03
i see the mince has started a month early lol, good luck Ed ;)

{Ed033's Note - no 'shnit'

04 Dec 2017 10:41:55
From what I gather mckree is here for the week to look at Celtic and vice versa. He has not settled at Brugge and they are willing to let him go. Musonda was on a flight to Glasgow at the weekend again up to see Celtic.

04 Dec 2017 11:50:00
Is this not a rumour from July 😁.

04 Dec 2017 12:10:28
Musonda was at Chelsea on Saturday, he sat next to Ethan Ampadu.

04 Dec 2017 12:57:00
It has begun. Maybe a thread with players "not" rumoured to be coming would be an idea? Probably at least five names. :)

04 Dec 2017 15:21:57
I spoke to my uncle about mcgree who coaches at a high level in Oz and the former assistant manager at Perth Glory he is nowhere near the level that Rogic was he is a bit like Stefan Johansen in that he can play in a few different positions but nowhere near as good.

04 Dec 2017 17:49:58
Howdo jamie bud, hope your on the mend mucker.

04 Dec 2017 18:37:45
We don’t need another 2 midfield players, we need a centre back, cover at left back and a quality goalkeeper to challenge Craig Gordon .

04 Dec 2017 21:30:41
We don’t need another 2 midfield players, we need a centre back, cover at left back and a quality goalkeeper to challenge Craig Gordon. And secure Eduardo or similar up front.

so these guys, mcginn, and all the other yeah nice - but let's get what we need before what we'd like.

Its like needing milk and buying 5 loaves. when you have ten already - ok you can have loadsa toast but nae milky tea.

05 Dec 2017 16:03:55
On the mend Bhoywonder TYVM (Y)

05 Dec 2017 17:08:29
It's funny how so many of our 'targets' can shape shift and give the impression to be at different locations at the same time. A truly remarkable ability and one that seems to be present in them all.

Good show! :)

08 Dec 2017 20:46:37
Wonder why Musonda just signed a new 5 year deal then.

02 Dec 2017 14:00:49

Celtic XI v Motherwell: Gordon; Lustig, Ajer, Boyata, Tierney; Brown, Ntcham; Hayes, Rogic, Sinclair; Edouard.

Some big changes today.

02 Dec 2017 14:37:47
Maybe too many changes to start with, but surely it's about time Hayes started showing some sort of form and Edouard could surprise them? However, I reckon the bench will be relied on at some point.

02 Dec 2017 17:13:42
Well called Edoard certainly surprised them.

30 Nov 2017 12:04:17
Just a general point on how quick your fortunes can turn:
Paddy roberts ran riot second half of last season, fast forward to now and he's been hindered by disjointed pre season, indifferent form and injuries. Bit gutted for the wee man, but this season won't boost his city first team aspirations. On another note James Forrest- a few big goals this year.

Agree5 0Disagree

30 Nov 2017 12:32:20
makes you kind of glad we didn't pay 12 million for him but all in all a very good footballer who improves our team.

30 Nov 2017 15:21:23
I think it is his poor pre season that has probably brought on these injuries IC. Everyone else was getting game time and a proper work out through the summer while he was sitting on planes and benches. It's a shame we didn't get him in earlier. Credit to JF though who has certainly been our star performer this season.

{Ed007's Note - You've hit the nail on the head, Stan regarding Roberts' preseason. While we were playing competitive matches and Euro qualifiers he was travelling the world sitting on City's bench.
If you remember back to last year Roberts had the same stuttering start to the season because he was behind everyone else fitness and sharpness wise, how many competitive games had we played before Roberts signed this summer? For the first couple of months of the season he's playing catch up with the rest of the squad who done a full preseason with us and played CL and SPFL games.}

30 Nov 2017 18:51:13
It might allow us to pick him up permanently in the summer.

30 Nov 2017 23:01:59
There is always an excuse for Paddy Roberts, I am not sure the Celtic fan base ever had the same sympathy for one of own home produced stars James Forrest who unless he is giving a MOTM performance can expect to hear " go to f. k Forrest you are useless"

01 Dec 2017 00:29:42
Now it's third instalment do we change it up or go with same again thanks?

Lustig Boyata jozo Tierney

Brown. Armstrong

Hayes. Rogic. Forrest


01 Dec 2017 06:28:17
The pre season definitely didn’t help him, mind you no one has looked overly sharp so far! Bit unfair maybe, still unbeaten, Top of the league, silverware in the bag and a CL away win.

Discounted bid for Paddy maybe?

01 Dec 2017 21:46:26
who is to say forest isn't play so well because there's competition for his place.

as long as we are winning Roberts/ forest what's the diff.

02 Dec 2017 13:57:23
The criticism Forrest has received was wholly justified. He has failed to reach the potential he showed. His final ball was arm tricuspid and he never scored enough goals.

You don't get a by because you are home produced. I'm home produced, can I get a game.

Forrest has upped his game at last. It's only taken 7 years. He needs to keep it up or he will lose his place, which is the way we moved forward. Home produced does trump talent.

He has no one to blame but himself for chronic inconsistency and no one to rely on to keep in the team but himself also.

02 Dec 2017 14:35:04
Paddy out for 3 months so let's see Forrest keep up his form with no competition. I am more of competitive threat than Hayes.

Over to you James, show everyone you can maintain form. Be a nice change for everyone concerned.

02 Dec 2017 18:28:54
Way to go James. Well played son.

29 Nov 2017 18:45:02

Celtic XI v Motherwell: Gordon; Lustig, Simunovic, Boyata, Tierney; Brown, Armstrong; Roberts, McGregor, Forrest; Griffiths.

Celtic trying to buy a controlling stake in an Austrian club.

Agree0 1Disagree

28 Nov 2017 10:12:34
I understand to progress as a club we need to find inventive ways of generating income and having an affiliated team down under with all the Celtic fans out there makes sense. I just hope we’re not in danger of becoming a franchise like Man City who also have an Australian team. I’d rather be Celtic than a soulless money machine.

28 Nov 2017 13:17:24
Austrian or Australian?

28 Nov 2017 14:01:26
Australian sorry. Spelling crap.

28 Nov 2017 20:04:52
Jackson Irvine, Tam Rogic and Skippy are not bad examples of what we could pick up from the Ozzie league.

28 Nov 2017 22:28:25
Fan based great. Better would be a decent youth academy. Never know what will turn up. If it's minimal which to be honest it will be. Shipping over some older gear to be reused by keen young players with good picked coaches no matter where it is in the world is a good thing.

28 Nov 2017 22:29:21
Didn't ask but what club?

29 Nov 2017 08:08:23
Brisbane Roar.

29 Nov 2017 08:32:20
Their 1st choice Central Coast Mariners with Brisbane roar as a back up.

29 Nov 2017 23:13:24
Big fan of the A-League. Lots of goals on BT Sport early doors on a Saturday morning and always decent crowds.

I think this could be a tidy bit of business by the club.

If it is Roar they go for could they rename them Brisbane Lions?

26 Nov 2017 14:09:32
Nae live chat today Ed? ☘️.

{Ed007's Note - Ed033's working on it mate, sorry.}

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Nov 2017 14:38:59
Cheers Ed.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

29 Nov 2017 08:32:15
Well ED I think that this game tonight will be the biggest challenge this year to our domestic run tight pitch nae DM though we have the Griff. How do u think BR will change it up I think it could be Two or three changes with this starting line up Gordon
Patrick R

{Ed007's Note - I'd be happy with that starting line-up, Rich.}

29 Nov 2017 12:55:17
I'd go with:


Gamboa Boyata Simunovic Tierney

Brown Ntcham

Roberts Rogic Sinclair

A very strong team with plenty options on the bench.

26 Nov 2017 14:24:49
Team I would have picked for today.

Wee coment lads as a jambo a remember phil o, donel passed on it broke ma heart as a jambo a worked with dhl at time and delivered to his familys house not long after ma heart breaks for his family a know the feeling lost ma wee celtic supporting dauggter 2 years ago aged 16 so respect to phils family there were brand new when a met them.

24 Nov 2017 20:22:57
Why would some one disagree?

24 Nov 2017 22:19:27
Think it was the one above Kenny.

25 Nov 2017 08:05:40
That advert is by far the best Christmas advert about, quality, only thing that surprised me was Craig Gordon never dropped the fone 😂😂.

25 Nov 2017 16:02:05
Sorry for your loss Kenny.

27 Nov 2017 09:07:46
All the best Kenny.

23 Nov 2017 21:41:30
Ed keep seeing that Man U have held talks with Dembele is this true or just the usual papers trying to sell our players.

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard of any talks but Utd are watching him along with half of Europe. How much game time would he get with Lukaku, Zlatan and the likes of Rashford there?}

Agree1 1Disagree

24 Nov 2017 08:09:05
Not so worried about MD moving on I think he will go in the summer it's everybody watch Young Tierney cause there is no cover there at all.

24 Nov 2017 11:35:41
Ed, have you heard whether we'll be going in for any defenders in January? If so, any names?

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard anything, Kev.}

25 Nov 2017 08:08:29
they were meant to have spoke to two centre halfs agents the other week. one player was english and the other croatian i heard.

25 Nov 2017 12:48:07
Rich, I don't think we need to worry aboit Tierney. The boy loves the club and the club and everyone associated with the club love him. Our future captain with many years in green in white I'm sure we all hope.

27 Nov 2017 09:15:33
Are we still looking at duverne, or has that ship sailed?
