Simunovic pulled from Bosnian squad due to Hamstring tear - which has a recovery time of 6-8 weeks.

Gr8 news! Just as we have Bayern games and HIbs semi final coming up.

The argument we should have signed another CB is getting stronger. Our current options are so injury prone.

{Ed007's Note - Some hamstring tears can heal in 2-3 weeks while some can take up to 12 weeks to heal so for now it's just speculation on how long Simunovic will be out for and it will require further tests to ascertain the severity of his injury.}

Thats all we need with a heavy schedule coming up hope big erik hits the ground running.

03 Oct 2017 12:24:04
I am sorry for Jozo as he was just getting his fitness back.
But surely a player must take responsibility for his fitness, we all know he is injury prone and Celtic have been nurturing him back to full fitness, why go away on international duty if you are carrying any kind of injury.
No, Jozo is at fault here.

03 Oct 2017 13:38:45
Tim, is it maybe that he was carrying a slight niggle and the national team wanted to see for themselves before ruling him out? If so then at least they have acknowledeged and they are not attempting to patch him up and he has the two weeks to begin his recovery. Its not Jozo fault we don't have the experience in there due to injuries etc, surely this is the fault if any of the management, whom I am loathed to point fault with (simply because of the pride and enjoyment they have brought back to supporting Celtic not for forgetting they are still unbeaten. that's really something. The BM games whilst important we are not expected to win, not saying we couldn't surprise people. As long as we beat Anderlecht at home and have our best players availble for this, the BM games are a bonus. A wee run in the Europa where we can address this position in January would benefit more than getting through to get 2 games and beaten heavily by a Madrid or other crazy budget team, even after addressing this position, Europa for me after the initial group stages of CL.

03 Oct 2017 14:11:11
Tim I think it happened in Scotland. The international gaffer said he spoke to the Celtic doctor and we sent him all the documents about the injury.

03 Oct 2017 18:03:24
Must have been a negative denizen on here then, only reason you thumbs down hoping a player plays well?

07 Oct 2017 11:02:50
may I suggest it nay be an "injury" like most people pull out of squads as they have a big schedule coming up for their club.

Whatever self confidence hayes has is slowly but surely getting shouted out of him when he plays left wing back, he should play AM where so much of his game attributes are better served. Yesterday he was nullified and struggled but when he moved into the middle for an attack at pace and had the opportunity to go either direction he looked like the player I thought we were buying from Aberdeen and he slipped a perfect pass for idouard who should have scored. i know we have mcgregor and rogic but similar to Armstrong if you play players out of position they look like bad players if you try and shoehorn them into a position for game time. Plus ntcham needs either bitton or kouassi a ball winning holding midfielder next to him if brown isn't there he strugggles otherwise.

01 Oct 2017 19:12:41
Hayes didn't play in middle for Aberdeen. So playing in there would be playing him out of position.

02 Oct 2017 09:49:22
If you'd read my comment you'd see I never said he played AM I'm saying that's were most of his attributes would be suited to play if you were at the game on Saturday you'd know what I was talking about he's never going to get a game playing where Sinclair is as he's playing out his skin. he's either a direct replacement for Sinclair or he could play through the middle in AM.

03 Oct 2017 18:54:29
You said playing players out of position makes them look like bad player then said we should play Hayes out of position.

04 Oct 2017 15:10:18
Pulling him from left wing back.

30 Sep 2017 12:51:10
Just got the Team for today, source very good.
Lustig Boyata Tierney
Nitcham Forest Rogic McGregor Hayes
Dembele Edouard.

30 Sep 2017 13:52:17
Like the look of that team but why persist with Hayes.

Didn’t want him signed and has proved to be money wasted. Calvin Miller or Jack Aitchison would be all the better for having his place.

30 Sep 2017 14:05:17
Kev . miller and aitcheson are with u23 in Swansea today. kick off 2.00.

30 Sep 2017 18:57:02
Was at the game, didn't play well. Wee McGregor and Gordon apart. Hayes is so negative it annoys me, he's far better than he has shown us. Edouard will not be signing for 6/ 7m lol.

30 Sep 2017 21:09:13
Dont get Hayes signing, Ryan Christie would do better and strange to send him to Aberdeen.

30 Sep 2017 22:49:49
Time to sign john mcginn.

01 Oct 2017 00:10:11
OneRonnyDeila I like John McGinn but I have issues. First being can he replace Scott Brown when he's past it. Can we afford to wait and let him go down south where his wages and fee would get into stupid money. And I'm not sure all round - thank god it's Brendan who's in charge. Hail Hail.

Celtic given planning permission to start the build of there 18 mill hotel and museum. can life get any sweeter unless your a sevconian.

28 Sep 2017 19:56:17
Who remembers the infamous hotel and casino to be built at ibrokes? All the ego and smugness from the 'we're too good for Scottish football' brigade.
Great times we live in brothers.

28 Sep 2017 20:11:01
Floating pitches.

28 Sep 2017 20:17:22
But that was from moonbeams and the gullibles believed him.

28 Sep 2017 21:22:09
for every £10 they spend,

years of unsurpassed dignity.

28 Sep 2017 21:48:00
Gordo: well at least they are floating in something else these days😮.

29 Sep 2017 13:30:30
When will the work be starting.

{Ed007's Note - Part of the application to GCC was that work would be started within three years.}

29 Sep 2017 19:42:49
Old minty must be raging that his dream complex is happening, just over the clyde from where he intended.

01 Oct 2017 00:15:24
I'm glad I had to suffer all their (succulent lamb) mince. It makes these times all the better. I just wish it had been Tommy Burns that won the title, some of his teams football was breathtaking.

Is there any truth in the split of tickets for league cup semis - Hibs / Us 50:50, while Motherwell Sevco is 20:80?
If it is true, how has this been allowed to happen?

Agree0 0Disagree

26 Sep 2017 18:20:25
Wouldnt think its allowed mate, think its always been 50/ 50.

26 Sep 2017 18:30:51
This is the main chance of sucess/ trophy most other fans have a chance of seeing and i don't grudge them a fair split particular in the final as the likes of hibs hearts Aberdeen could sell that. the problem is the rest can't and don't . what I would do is give then half the oldco end and half of main stand first. if they then need more them give them the full oldco end then if the can sell it give them the full half share. but if authorities or other clubs get hard line about it I'd accept 50% and when they can't fill it tell them to ram it sideways and refuse to take anymore.

27 Sep 2017 07:20:05
Seems Motherwell only requested around 10 thousand tickets.

27 Sep 2017 08:53:24
This is the norm for a semi final with a club who cannot take their full allocation. Murderwell couldn't fill a bath never mind half of Hampden. What will be interesting to see though is what the cash split will be.

27 Sep 2017 20:02:37
I thought it had to be 50/50 as well Bhoywonder, but I read on one of the other sites that secco have been given 80%. If that's true it's a disgrace it happened at all and also so for Motherwell accepting it!

Think Forrest will feel hard done by!

23 Sep 2017 11:42:53
Very hard done by! So do I I have him to score 2! 😂.

23 Sep 2017 11:54:56
Well ed unless it's a coincidence the boy miller is an idiot and will surely have sore baws.

23 Sep 2017 12:04:35
From last year our strongest line up?

22 Sep 2017 14:18:16

Celtic have been shortlisted for FIFA Best Fans of the Year award along with Borussia Dortmund and Copenhagen.

22 Sep 2017 19:50:03
Thatl be another fine then.

22 Sep 2017 20:52:52
Is that for real? Lol. could just imagine the sevconians spewing if we won it lolol.

{Ed007's Note - Of course it's real, why wouldn't be on the shortlist? Imagine the folk in our own support spewing if we won it!}

22 Sep 2017 21:27:40
had a look, it in relation to the display V Hearts last game of the season/

the other nominees are for charitable events so more likely they will win it - but nice to be noticed.

{Ed007's Note -

22 Sep 2017 21:57:57
That was awesome!

{Ed007's Note - It's just one of the many reasons why Celtic fans are THE best in the world bar none, even when there's those amongst us try to put us down.}

22 Sep 2017 23:08:42
Nice to be on the short list folks, but there is no way will win it: we are up against B. Dortmund who were due to play Monaco when their bus was attacked: The game was put back 1 day and the fans to social media to ask for help with visiting fans, some were duly put up at houses that people had said they would open their house and let them stay . Now by all accounts we would love to win this award but even we must concede to this fantastic gesture.

22 Sep 2017 23:09:55
No Ed not that one : the one with the whole stadium has Tifo and the Lyons banner / Big Cup : also the goal from Moussa D against St Johnstone is up for an award and I think that stands a chance.

23 Sep 2017 10:47:45
Rightly so every top player that has came and sampled paradise says its the best atmosphere bar none lthough its been a while since the crumbledome has seen aby top eiro players.

26 Sep 2017 15:09:24
Could you take this down please, you will hurt the feelings of ph#l and the Argentina CSC.

{Ed007's Note - Dear Mr Lawwell, how about something like this against Bayern Munich?

Lots of love, The Green Brigade.

No DM is he injured again?

20 Sep 2017 18:52:21
No Dembele? Thought he would have got a game in before Saturday.

20 Sep 2017 18:58:34
Jozo missing to.

20 Sep 2017 19:03:46
Id have Armstrong before Ntcham.

20 Sep 2017 19:07:07
So the stuff about the team leak was right.

20 Sep 2017 19:22:19
What team leak viking.

20 Sep 2017 19:33:57
Did that "leak" not have dembele in the line up?

21 Sep 2017 11:29:25
Ntcham was gash again last night. I want Rogers to go with Armstrong, Brown and Rogic on Saturday. I know we payed £4m but I'm not convinced he is playing well enough. I hope Rogers isn't influenced by the fact he has spent so much on him rather than looking at form. On that basis he shouldn't start. Armstrong and Rogic are more effective and certainly a far greater goal threat. Ntcham's shooting has so far been literally way wide of the mark.

Having said that he will probably start. :)

21 Sep 2017 19:06:07
I'd rather McGregor starting over Armstrong and Ntcham.

22 Sep 2017 12:21:27
Ntcham is young and yet too develop gie him time. Remember Stilian and Armstong last year, It is a shame Koussi is not fit i thought he was just starting to show what he was capable off reminded me of Wanyama when he first arrived. I am sure BR will pick the best middle to front he can. lt is not the midfield that worries me it is the defence. I would like to see three at the back with Lusnig in there but do you go with Boyata and Simunovic or use Tierney.

24 Sep 2017 12:36:12
I hope you are right about Ntcham. Even if you are Armstrong is better.

The choice was vindicated as that is our strongest starting 11. Rogic scored, Armstrong was excellent and Broon was brilliant.

That's how we will line up in Belgium.

18 Sep 2017 16:45:24
Just seen a report that Paul Wilson has passed away. RIP.

who the FECK hits a dislike button.

{Ed033's Note - Hopefully they meant they disliked that he has passed.

What type of person disagrees to that. Shame on you.
