Going to be very difficult to go unbeaten with Bias Officials We can only beat 11 players in front of us but Referees have raised the bar on what can only be described as organised cheating from the very top.

Agree6 Disagree8

@dth100 - so Browns wasn't a sending off?

17 Apr 2017 08:08:59
Ffs. Aye the ref got it wrong but he didn't tell the guy to dive, plus it was a stone wall red. So if we don't go unbeaten or win the treble i'd blame Brown not the ref.

17 Apr 2017 09:41:42
Yellow would have sufficed ;)

17 Apr 2017 09:53:30
Browns wasn't a sending off no! Actually watch it back! Yes he dived in but never a red card! Yellow at most. like I've said before on here, it will take more than scotlands current buns with a whistle to stop us! Bring on next Sunday, with or without broony it doesn't matter in the slightest! That the treble is ours!

17 Apr 2017 09:57:29
no it wasn't it was it was a yellow same colour as Don Robertson gave for the tackle on Kieran Tierney against Motherwell which was worse. The ref was just waiting on that chance to award a penalty and it was not going to matter if it was for a foul or not . its the same with the cheating that joe garner done last week disgusting trying to cheat but that's normal for your lot.

17 Apr 2017 09:58:39
Am I the only one who thinks it shouldn't have been red? A definite yellow for me, referees set a standard and if that's red and Joey garners volley on the Hamilton guy ( name escapes me) is a yellow then it seems to be double standards yet again.

17 Apr 2017 11:13:02
@Augustus - no everyone from the East End including Brenda didn't think it was a red. As for the hypocrisy on here - where's your outrage when Divebele goes down too easily?

@lh86 - you just lost your own argument by saying Brown dived in so he wasn't in control.

17 Apr 2017 11:53:30
From the Halls of the SFA to the Grand Master, the cry has been anyone but Celtic and the Lanarkshire Referee Association will carry out the orders to the full.

17 Apr 2017 13:27:16
@UJ, there's going down easy and there's blatant diving. All of which I never mentioned in my original post by the way.

17 Apr 2017 13:45:59
Celtic v Hibs final for me.

17 Apr 2017 17:12:08
Selective memory union jack, Kenny Miller diving in 2 footer not a word said.

17 Apr 2017 17:14:37
So every player who dives in should be sent off? Don't talk rubbish! If that was the case joe garner would never get on the pitch! Browns was no more than a yellow, but I'm sure that won't matter when his appeal is heard! But by that time broony will have helped us into another final! And if u lot think broony is such an overrated crap player then it won't bother u if he plays! 😉😉.

17 Apr 2017 17:17:21
UJ has nothing else to do but feed his own delusion by coming on to the Champions site and spouting the level 5 drivel. He'll be off soon to begin his marching season, wearing their pyjamas onesies and still practising to play that big base drum whilst trying to walk in line full of Buckie.

How's the King doing with your new Club?

17 Apr 2017 19:58:07
It was a sending off bhoys but were playing a mediocre spl team next week if we don't win it will be on a par or worse than the Inverness result. let's remind this mob Glasgows green n white.

19 Apr 2017 16:18:11
Haw ignatius wits up wae bucky?

16 Apr 2017 16:32:12
Henri oyekuru ( spelling ) confirms he is in talks with celtic and is definitely moving in the summer.

Agree1 Disagree5

16 Apr 2017 18:24:41
Where you hear this mate?

16 Apr 2017 19:01:37
A report on sport bible / talking baws a think it was accredited to . He says there has been contact from Celtic amongst other clubs but talks are ongoing . In the interview he said his current club know he is leaving definitely in the summer . He has seen a route to show his skills at Celtic / develop and in the future move to guess where? ( EPL ) only 19 so if possible for a decent fee and then move on later like wanyama, vvd? Only
A rumour but the article was on social media this afternoon.

16 Apr 2017 23:08:42
Del it also states there are otber clubs interested and hed love to play in the epl so a wouldn't hold ma breath mate.

17 Apr 2017 08:17:57
Mally I pointed out that he was in contact with celtic and other clubs also! And I said that he was looking at ways to get to the epl. To be fair I have never seen him play and only recognised his name through posts on here . I was mearly point out his interview on line . Today's daily mirror claims celtic are fighting it out with West Brom for his signature . Source ( sly sports newspaper round up )

17 Apr 2017 09:56:35
Lads obviously a talent but I'd give it a miss to be honest! Do we really want someone who goes AWOL from his club the minute he doesn't get his way! Is he going to come in the summer and score a few goals then demand to leave in January? Just my opinion but I'd stay away from him!

17 Apr 2017 13:44:29
I believe he was being forced into signing a contract that was not in his interest and club were acting like sevco say no more. I think also wanted him to switch agents etc etc so he took action to protect himself from the dodgy antics. Treating a 19 year old kid who is away from his home and family in this way is appalling. I would welcome this guy at our great club.

17 Apr 2017 20:32:11
Bang on kwaj take him in a heartbeat. I live where it's epl this epl that Rodgers slagged cos Liverpool are shite but for me hers the point Rodgers 1st n foremost is a coach and makes players better . Armstrong dembele Sinclair to name a few us as a club would be seen as a stepping stone and tbf rightly so look at Forster wanyama van dijk but not only are we a stepping stone we're now a team with a manager who's can say come to us yes u may be good and may one day get your move to big money but I'll also make you a better player.

16 Apr 2017 15:52:40
celtic to appeal the red card hearing not being heard til the 27th.

Agree1 Disagree3

16 Apr 2017 17:34:49
Quite rite, never a sending off.

16 Apr 2017 21:25:56
Brown has always been a chav
. will let you down when most needed . it was a red . Armstrong for captain 4.

16 Apr 2017 22:54:30
Never a red comparef to tackles iv seen this season.

17 Apr 2017 20:42:26
Love Celtic but hate to say it was a red rewatched it a few times in slow motion Brown lucky not to snap lads legs. You cannot compare to other games but to that actual incident. Different referees different decisions!

18 Apr 2017 09:35:45
That's the point JadMock it was the same ref that deemed the Motherwell player's challenge on Tierney a yellow card so same ref different decisions.

16 Apr 2017 11:30:12

Celtic XI v Ross County: Gordon; Simunovic, Sviatchenko, Tierney; Forrest, Brown, Armstrong, McGregor, Sinclair; Rogic Demebele.

Subs: Bailly, Toure, Izaguirre, Griffiths, Gamboa, Roberts, Eboue Kouassi.

good line up big Tom Rogic starting In Brendan We trust Make mine a Treble.

15 Apr 2017 23:12:11
Info from a good source: a person who has worked extensively for many years with Everton in a legal capacity has told my brother in law that when Lukaku goes in the summer, Dembele is the preferred replacement IF Celtic are willing to sell.

This guy is my brother in law's cousin and lives near Birkenhead. I have been to Goodison with him and my brother in law in the past and he has a very strong relationship with all the staff there.

He is Everton to the bone. He says it all depends on whether Celtic want to sell and if Dembele wants to leave Glasgow. He is a very respectable and well connected guy. Apparently Everton have watched Dembele numerous times and he's the guy they want. HH.

Agree0 Disagree3

16 Apr 2017 01:36:28
Bobthecat. The next family meeting will be a tad awkward if you have indeed delivered here :) . Names address and leanings. I like the slashed odds of variable sources even though i've never heard of them 😀. Better than a cabbies maw no end!
Not sure who reads this but you may have to change your name to ally cat. Nice sunshine. Like a good rumour!
. everton can gtf. my 2 pence anyway.

{Ed007's Note - Right now William Jose is the player that Everton are looking very seriously at as a striker to replace Lukaku. Dembele won't be going anywhere this summer as nobody will pay the - what is seen as unrealistic by some - price Celtic have put on him to frighten any potential suitors off. }

16 Apr 2017 02:15:03
What a name!
Im not the superstitious type.

16 Apr 2017 10:42:20
I hope you're right Ed. HH.

16 Apr 2017 19:05:08
MD is seen by all as a very good player and can only improve.

Its not news to say everton are interested, it would be news if everton aren't interested.

but until someone actually steps up with the asking price he's ours.

14 Apr 2017 22:33:57
Hear Brendan has eyes on Vinicius Junior. Not heard of him or anything just something my mate brought up today. No idea how much truth is in it.

{Ed007's Note - He's 16 and under Article 19 of FIFA's regulations on the status and transfer of players,

1. International transfers of players are only permitted if the player is over the age of 18.

Aside from the fact Flamengo have a buy out/termination clause reported to be £26million in Junior’s contract which runs until 2019 which they are are desperate to try to either remove or increase, Barcelona have already held preliminary talks about signing him which some are saying has all been agreed and the only things stopping it being announced is the FIFA regs.
Manchester Utd held talks with Flamengo but they collapsed when the Brazilian club demanded an up-front payment to give Utd priority in talking to the youngster.
Oh..... and his birthday is the 12th of July!!!}

Agree0 Disagree1

15 Apr 2017 08:45:41
I saw a guy on social media claiming Barcelona were buying him then giving us a 2 year loan. Made up scheidt you'd have to think.

15 Apr 2017 20:41:15
Probably where it's came from then KevBhoy.

14 Apr 2017 18:26:33
strong rumours that one of the signings in the summer is going to cost 8m and that we've all heard of this player.

Agree15 Disagree16

14 Apr 2017 21:47:20
I've heard that we have watched Jack Grealish on a few occations this year. I wouldn't think he would cost us £8m but would be a decent addition.

{Ed007's Note - Callum McGregor is a better player - and a better professional - than Jack Grealish.}

14 Apr 2017 22:18:30
heard we are looking to take jack wilshire.

{Ed007's Note - The coke dealers of Glasgow will be delighted to hear that!}

14 Apr 2017 22:41:18
haha that they will mate.

{Ed007's Note - Keep me up to date, I've made a few bob from my Tena shares and looking to reinvest some budo.}

14 Apr 2017 22:22:56
@jb67 - it's Barrie McKay!

14 Apr 2017 22:36:44
What u heard JB? Hope your rite mate. just hope we're all not building our selfs up for a massive disappointment! Think it's different with Brendan in charge but and he'll try as hard as he can to bring in the highest quality he can! Really like it to be a quality attacking midfielder! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻.

15 Apr 2017 00:33:01
In fairness McKay does have potential and at a good club with a good manager he could do well. So not Rangers then. Could maybe put in a cheeky bid of 2 empty gingey bottles and a packet of monster munch - probably be accepted!

{Ed007's Note - I'd rather sign Stephen Hawking than McKay, he's absolutely honking and miles behind players we've got in our Development Squad.}

15 Apr 2017 09:24:26
Jack grealish not for me attitude shocking and ad agree wee mcgregor is better.

15 Apr 2017 10:03:32
Stephen Hawking would certainly put a new meaning to the black hole when playing across town .

15 Apr 2017 12:23:06
How can we know the cost and not the name? Teasing us there JB. I think we will perhaps finally see PL's "6-8m" player this summer. I think we'll have people here now who will actually be able to find the value rather than just talk about it.

Funniest thing you've said all season UJ. How is Scottish football's most gifted talent doing? Picked himself off the three-goal mark yet?

15 Apr 2017 12:38:22
Shelvey from Newcastle? Cheaper alternative to Sigurdsson. Not actually heard anything just a player I like.

15 Apr 2017 18:48:47
Newcastle are my second side AG. And right now, I wouldn't split Brown and Armstrong for Shelvey. Good player though. Can pick a pass, which is what Rodgers is said he's looking for. I think it will be a player who ays a bit further up though, more of a CAM.

15 Apr 2017 18:32:52
guy who told me on coaching staff.

15 Apr 2017 18:45:08
If they do the job on the pitch I don't care how much they cost however I would prefer us to unearth another cheap gem than pay over the odds for someone remember we paid collectively 1 million for Larsson, Moravcik, and Agathe.

15 Apr 2017 18:50:37
Nice to see you making a few coins from the "share tip" I gave you lol

If you are looking for another one try this 88e waiting on (wink, wink) drilling info from Oz jumped double digits last week percentage wise still don't have the cahoonas to do a Timalloy and pipe up about horses even though a gave you the winner of the grand nat too!

13 Apr 2017 09:27:27
I see we are being linked to sunderlands Borini, any thoughts on this bhoys? I have not seen anything of him.
I expect the Scottish press will link us with everyone until the close of the transfer window. Any truth in this one?

Agree1 Disagree2

13 Apr 2017 13:53:35
I think hed do well up here a bit lije sinclair has lost his way but imo hed score goals.

13 Apr 2017 17:53:36
i know this will get shot down and Sheffield Wednesday have a game tomorrow but i saw Garry Hooper today going through Lennoxtown.

14 Apr 2017 01:25:12
he was up at a funeral.

14 Apr 2017 08:08:38
I think there is better options than Borini, but I think we should be looking at players who have a bit more experience in Europe, id be looking into leagues with a lot of time for wingers like the Portuguese league or Dutch league. Not saying Borini wouldn't be a good signing just think there's a more wide variety of options for that sort of price.

14 Apr 2017 09:19:20
Like Sinclair I think borinis best days were playing under br at Swansea
Cheap journalists though
Links this summer will be borini routledge allen vorm
One name I'd love at Celtic is sigurdson if Swansea go down I think it could happen depending on what prem clubs are interested.

{Ed001's Note - Sigurdsson has made it known he wants out of Swansea.}

14 Apr 2017 09:29:47
Never really happened at spurs for him but I think he's the type of player Celtic should be looking at this close season
Not sure what sort of financial package would be required mind you but would expect around the same as what Sinclair is on.

14 Apr 2017 12:16:10
Swansea will want about 100 million dollars so can't see it. Some player though, he would be immense!

14 Apr 2017 22:37:42
borini is a plate of mince to my mums tatties.

12 Apr 2017 15:32:37
Anyone heard anything regarding Daniel Sturridge? Heard from a few people now, he is very high on Brendan's wish list.

Agree0 Disagree5

12 Apr 2017 16:43:18
Just no happening mate. We will get some decent signings, but its not going to be players on 3-4 times the wages of our highest paid players.

12 Apr 2017 19:00:05
Never off treatment table and his wages would b an issue so no chance uless a loan which a wouldn't fancy.

12 Apr 2017 21:08:38
Need to hire a full new medical team just for him.

12 Apr 2017 22:06:14
He is cracking player on his day and another one Rodgers got the best out off. Don't think we could ever afford him, or would be willing to take the risk on him. I heard some mad stories from Liverpool fans about why he wasn't playing but don't know how true they were.

12 Apr 2017 22:14:24
Feck sake big hand u can't say uv heard mad stories then leave it there, spill the beans man! Disnae matter if it's a loadashite.

13 Apr 2017 11:37:01
reports today said it was fabio borrini that rodgers wants.

13 Apr 2017 11:52:46
I agree Steph now I'm extremely curious 😅.

13 Apr 2017 13:40:10
Steph didn't mean to build you hopes up as it is nothing juicy lol. There was a story doing the rounds (think it even made The Guardian - should be easy to find online) that Sturridge was refusing to play on religious grounds, instead of being permanently injured.

When I say religious grounds I don't mean the playing fields behind the Chapel. I think God was telling him that Liverpool were shite and he would be better off going praying for a league title on a Sunday than struggling for a 2-2 draw against Burnley!

It was most likely a pile of tom tit to be honest.

{Ed001's Note - it is utter cack. He had an ongoing injury problem which needed to be managed, then went away with England and Roy Hodgson had a chip on his shoulder, refused to take Liverpool's medical advice over him, made him do normal training and it damn near crippled him.}

13 Apr 2017 19:13:08
I thought it sounded like a wind up Ed. Saying that, a few decades of the rosary would do Liverpool no harm! 😉.

{Ed001's Note - they used to call Liverpool the capital of Ireland, half jokingly, because of the huge population of Irish Catholics, I don't think there is any lack of rosaries there! Me dad's ma has enough for half of England to be fair, but that's what you get when you are brought up as an orphan by nuns I suppose.}

13 Apr 2017 20:05:57
Better than nothing bighand. Gave me a wee chuckle anyway. A knew ed1 would put u right mate.

12 Apr 2017 12:19:39
Reports in the media that rodgers is to be handed a budget of 15m in the summer?

Agree16 Disagree4

12 Apr 2017 13:07:17
I'm not overly fussed how much we shell out in transfer fees as long as we spend wisely and ambitiously.

{Ed007's Note - I never believe these type of stories, there's far too many factors involved to believe they are accurate, does the £15 million include agent fees and signing on fees? What about wages etc?

What is paid by the buying club would typically include:

(a) Transfer fee - the big number.
(b) Any levy applied by the local FA – 5% for the EPL.
(c) Tax due on the transfer fee – typically this will be VAT (at varying rates across Europe) some or all of which should be reclaimable.
(d) Agent fees – this may be to one or more agents.
(e) Tax due on the agent fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the agent bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(f) Intermediary fees – this may be to one or more sponging leeches(what do you mean you have a super agent?) .
(g) Tax due on the Intermediary fees – typically this is VAT at the local rate where the Intermediary bills from – it is not reclaimable.
(h) Signing on fee to the player (possibly including non-reclaimable VAT if the player is VAT registered).
(i) Legal fees.
(j) VAT on legal fees which is reclaimable.
(k) Moving/relocation costs for the player.
(l) VAT on moving/relocation costs which is reclaimable.
(m) Paying up insurance costs to the selling club (sometimes waived).
(n) Variables and tax on variables which may or may not be reclaimable) – these would typically include legal fees, moving/relocation costs, etc....

Are all these costs coming out of the £15 million?}

12 Apr 2017 15:26:38
We could get 30 Dembeles for that, or a third of Andy Carrol. It's about finding the right player and being able to attract them instead of "we have x to spend". I would rather Celtic increased their wage budget and paid the 3 or 4 top players 35-40k a week instead of a splurge on transfer fees. They have always said they wouldn't break the wage structure but given the current strong finances they could afford to do it if the player has sell on value.

12 Apr 2017 15:47:50
i'll settle for a playmaker, a centre half, an enforcer in midfield, a striker and a winger, i'm not asking for much lol.

{Ed033's Note - An enforcer/striker; do you mean someone like Conor McGregor?

12 Apr 2017 17:59:49
there was a comma between them ed, so its 2 different players, a roy keane type alongside a lubo type, again im not asking for much haha.

12 Apr 2017 22:15:34
Ooooooooo a comma, that's u telt ed.

13 Apr 2017 11:38:43
can't beat a good catholic education steph lol.

13 Apr 2017 11:57:13
James the ed was only joking , stop taking yourself so seriously 😡.

13 Apr 2017 15:29:33
who was being serious sweetie? me and ed033 always have a joke hence my haha on the post. its a banter site.

13 Apr 2017 17:30:10
Calm down fabadabado fs it's no face book we are on here.
