Surprised to see Armstrong on the bench.

25 Nov 2017 07:46:20
Think it's a mistake playing Ntcham, unless his passing has improved a lot.

20 Nov 2017 08:39:40
When you think about it the Celtic team that won in Lisbon, had maybe two world class players in Jimmy Johnstone and Bobby Murdoch, and then 4 international class players and then the rest were good honest journeyman guys that you could rely on to do their job, but they had a manager, that they believed in, that they respected and they would follow his instructions, that inter Milan team were full of the Neymars and the Messis of the time, but Celtic out psyched them, out thought them and out played them.

PSG are nowhere as good as Inter were, and Celtic are nowhere as good as the Lisbon guys, but the thing is, if PSG play to their maximum and Celtic play to their best and throw away their inhibitions, PSG are there for the taking, pride comes before a fall, and they are so full of themselves, they are going to fall a long way.

Sorry aindoh but if psg play in 3rd or 4th gear they will still beat us comfortably. If they are at their best then it'll be damage limitation for us. We need to play out of our skin and hope they don't turn up to get anything.
I think it's crazy to try and compare this match to our finest hour. This psg team are full of super talented footballers whereas that inter team were full of defensive minded footballers with the mindset of winning every game 1-0. 2 completely different teams.
Also it's wrong to compare both eras matches as there is a far greater gap between Celtic and psg now than Celtic and inter in 67.

20 Nov 2017 17:11:47
If PSG play to their best we’ve got no chance aindoh. Unfortunate but true.

20 Nov 2017 18:27:51
Aindoh you are talking about a team that won THE most coveted club trophy in world football.
Threfore I would suggest they were ALL world class, and for me the teams of yesteryear have no chance against the super teams of now, football has changed dramatically.

20 Nov 2017 19:14:56
Rayman although football has changed imo it's fitness and conditioning that's different . give that lions the access to the facilities and sports science of today and their class and ability would tell in any league or competition.

21 Nov 2017 13:02:14
aindoh you are dreaming.
We are so far behind them it almost doesn't matter how good we play in a one off game and how badly they play, we'll still lose on Wednesday. For us to get anything from the game will need something close to a miracle, and yes miracles can happen but they are few and far between that's why they're called miracles! lol HH.

21 Nov 2017 21:22:31
it wasn't naymar
it wasn't Mbop
it wasn't cavani
it wasn't di maria (wasn't playing)
it wasn't ben arfa
it wasn't draxler
it wasn't alves
it wasn't silva

I tuned in knowing all these players.

they had no week links anywhere, every position has practically the best player they can afford (which is anyone)

I was blown away by Rabiot and I had no clue who he was.

I am seriously not up on European football but even this "unknown" was world class.

I agree heart etc can win games, but these guys at half speed could win the cl.

21 Nov 2017 23:05:02
Can't see anything other than 90 mins of torture the moro night, can't say I enjoy watching us against those super rich multi billionaire funded clubs. Looking forward to a bit of a breather in the Europa and hopefully a wee run. On the upside lads when sitting through the torture the moro night just think that's how Sevconians feel when they play us.

When I was a young lad my old man used to get a cabbie called Jim to drive myself and my brothers home to my mums some Sundays. Great auld boy, he talked endlessly about celtic and he had an old clapped out cavalier that other drivers marveled at the miles he got out of it. anyway he said there was lads at that time that turned down professional football contracts for danger money down the pitts.
That one statement says it all. No matter how good our team could of been in the last 10/ 15 years if players stayed, the point is that the lisbon team with today's money would of been dismantled and our history wouldn't exist. Psg are pretty much one of those game console/ current times dream teams. Keep the score down. Play negative and go toe to toe with anderlecht when the time comes.

22 Nov 2017 14:10:24
Self delusion is sometimes a good thing. Why would rangers fans stick to it so passionately?

I am looking to us to put up a better show like they did against Bayern. That is all we can ask.

If they fire on all cylinders and we freeze it will be a pummelling.

If we step up and fight and play, we will still lose but by feck I will be proud. This mob will win it imo.

Get stuck in Celtic and believe in your ability.

We do.

24 Nov 2017 09:39:33
PSG are nowhere near Inter? Are you having a laugh? PSG would destroy Inter.

The Green tinted specs are strong in this one. :)

Nostalgia can be guilty of creating false realities. That teams back in the distant past would beat the very best now. They wouldn't.

Even with fitness levels they couldn't compete. Teams like Barca, PSG and a few others would run any of the great teams of the past ragged.

Evening Ed007,
As January is almost upon us and no doubt you'll be inundated with Transfer Rumours.
Have you heard that we're interested in Louis Moult?
I've now had a few people including a Motherwell fan telling me that discussions have taken place with Moult's Agent and Celtic. Just thought I'd ask as it may be Barry White.
Keep up the good work Ed as it's much appreciated.

{Ed007's Note - A few people have asked me about this today but it sounds like something off of Tw@tter to me. I mean seriously, why on Earth would we want to sign Louis Moult? He would be lucky to get in any Celtic matchday squad and would only hinder the progress of youngsters like Aitchison.}

Agree2 0Disagree

19 Nov 2017 23:10:49
Think Moult would be a right good signing. Clear goal scorer and with big Moussa likely to be off next season I reckon it would be a good move. No fee involved either.

20 Nov 2017 01:09:30
I don't know why anyone says moult he's not good enough would have Hayes ahead of him and look where hates is at game time wise.

20 Nov 2017 04:35:55
I have a feeling, it might just be a hunch, that we'll be able to replace Dembele with somebody a wee bit better than Moult and we won't have to worry too much about the fee either.

20 Nov 2017 08:39:51
January?, it's only november.

20 Nov 2017 16:35:55
Moult is worth a shout for 3rd choice striker if the moneys right but there's no way he's a replacement for dembele.

22 Nov 2017 14:14:37
If Hayes gets s game, Houlton has to be a better option. We paid £1.3m for Hayes.

Let that sink in.

£1.3m Hayes

£0.00 for Moult.

Hard one that.

Plus it stops the gets getting him.

19 Nov 2017 21:10:55
I see Celtic have taken 2 young Australian boys 16 and 18 on trial don't know anything about them does anyone else nick faust and Leon mazis.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Nov 2017 21:10:05
Few signings I've heard to expect to happen in January.

Filip Benkovic - £7m
Miquel Nelom - Feyenoord - Pre-Contract
John McGinn - Hibs - £4.5m + Liam Henderson
Lewis Morgan - St Mirren - Pre- Contract
Louis Moult - Motherwell - Pre-Contract

Minimum fees may be offered for the pre-contract guys before the end if the window same as GMS situation.

Agree1 0Disagree

19 Nov 2017 22:22:02
Dont see celtic spending that kind of money although I urge you Mr lawwell prove me wrong, one thing I would say about you valuation of benkovic is less than half the 20million being banded about.

20 Nov 2017 04:40:26
Never seen Benkovic but I doubt we've got a chance with some of the clubs looking at him. The rest can stay where they are.

20 Nov 2017 23:54:27
More outs than in this Jan some youth bhoys out on Loan Ajer Henderson needs to move on he's no getting games he's a good player who now needs to be a regular to flourish. Kouassi now needs to show his worth as well. Benyu out on Loan a CH in is a must for me anything else can wait till next year. Let's face it we only brought one in last Jan window that's what I think will happen again. As I look at it here's two teams we can put out which could still win SPFL . Gordon Lustig Boyata jozo Tierney Brown Armstrong Roberts Rogic Sinclair Dembele. De Vries Ralston Bitton Erick Hayes Ntcham kouassi Forrest MC Gregor Millar Griff. We don't need to stock pile players we may need one or two quality players to walk into first team to help in CL what do u think ED.

18 Nov 2017 11:30:21

Celtic XI v Ross County: Gordon; Lustg, Boyata, Bitton, Tierney; Brown, Armstrong; Forrest, McGregor, Sinclair; Dembele.

Celtic have started removing the screens and are to install modern state of the art new ones.

Agree0 0Disagree

17 Nov 2017 20:15:02
old ones on gumtree, Ibrokes.

16 Nov 2017 18:33:46
Dorus de Vries has signed a contract extension which will see him remain at the Club until the summer of 2019.

Agree2 3Disagree

16 Nov 2017 22:49:46
Honestly?, didn't see that coming.

17 Nov 2017 21:13:30
Not overly excited by this to say the least. Looks like we are stuck with the golden oldies for our gk options. I don't think CG will move to be a PL no2 at this stage of his career and the long contact he is on :/ . Never know. If CG jumps ship in the summer and we go for a new no1 then fine but it looks doubtful now.

19 Nov 2017 17:18:36
I think de vries is quite well liked around the club. May be something to do with bringing through the you lad hazard. Always good to have experienced heads around, which actually there aren't too many at Celtic.

16 Nov 2017 10:51:28
Morning EDs I see some sites reporting on a CH called Moore if I remember right from Reading being linked have use heard anything on this?

{Ed007's Note - We couldn't afford Liam Moore even if Reading were willing to sell him.}

Agree1 0Disagree

16 Nov 2017 12:33:36
Is he that good or would we look to get him on Loan?

{Ed007's Note - Reading wouldn't loan him out as Jaap Stam sees Moore as a key member of his team.}

16 Nov 2017 19:19:26
He was a prospect at Leicester City a couple of years back, but didn’t quite become a regular and moved on to
Reading after a couple of loan spells at Bristol City .
Drewzybhoy .

16 Nov 2017 18:36:06
Well can't see that one going through then. Am not holding out for much action this window if any ins I would be surprised what do you think ED?

{Ed007's Note - I think there will be some movement both ways in January.}

17 Nov 2017 10:57:23
its only 5m the fee in the reports i saw.

17 Nov 2017 07:33:51
Now I saw Tierney has changed his agent too a London based one I think there is nothing in it but some may think it's the beginning of a possible bigger move what's your thoughts on it ED.

{Ed007's Note - I don't have any. }

18 Nov 2017 13:10:34
Can't see the wee mans head being turned he's celtic daft.

16 Nov 2017 04:59:36
What is the score with Eric Shevchenko is he just waiting for january and a move.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Nov 2017 16:12:19
He's available for selection this weekend.
