I see Davie Provan is slagging off Scott Brown. What is it with these ex players - like Walker and Nicholas as well - that they feel the need to have a go in the way they do? Brown has been fantastic for Celtic and Provan's comments reek of bitterness, but why?


1.) 24 Oct 2017 07:41:58
30 pieces of silver Judas pricks.

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?


1.) 26 Sep 2017 18:20:25
Wouldnt think its allowed mate, think its always been 50/ 50.

2.) 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.

3.) 27 Sep 2017 07:20:05
Seems Motherwell only requested around 10 thousand tickets.

4.) 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.

5.) 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!



14 Jun 2017 16:44:39
Apparently a fee of over £1 million has been agreed for Hayes with Christie going on loan for a season. I think that's a bad bit of business and also don't understand why, if those who sanction such moves are available, they haven't secured Armstrong on a new deal yet and also signed up Roberts. Surely we are not waiting for the VVD money to come through before pursuing the latter.


1.) 14 Jun 2017 16:57:10
Armstrong said his deal was put on hold till after the Scotland game
Who says we aren't negotiating for paddy right now?
What you want celtic to talk us through every step of every deal as it happens?
Has the transfer window even been open a week?
Do our top targets want to wait to see if we get champions league football?
We don't need major surgery so we should be taking our time and gEttington the right people
The people the gaffer wants.

2.) 14 Jun 2017 21:34:49
Even if Hayes turns out to be a revelation, which I doubt, Christie is already a far better, younger and more versatile player. Shaking my head in between scratching it over this one, will never make sense to me.

3.) 14 Jun 2017 21:28:53
Andy1969, spending over a million on squad players is a sign how far in front Celtic are give Brendan a chance the window has only opened and you are critical.

4.) 14 Jun 2017 21:48:22
Davie Rogers doesn't see Christie as a wide player and he ain't getting a game in the middle.
So isn't it better to send him to play evert week at the second best team in the country?

5.) 14 Jun 2017 22:08:42
Mandy Rodgers just doesn't fancy Christie and if he's not going to get a game in first team another year out on loan won't hurt him.

6.) 14 Jun 2017 22:18:58
When you stop being a patronising twat Kev, maybe you'll see that all I'm saying is I find it strange that they have time to sort this out yet not Armstrong, as yet, or Roberts, which in my opinion, are far more pressing.
I can't bear your likes - ones who are just happy with whatever happens and talk in such condescending ways to people who have a different opinion!

7.) 14 Jun 2017 22:37:59
Give the bhoy a chance, did he not have the most assists in Scotland last season?

8.) 14 Jun 2017 22:45:56
Andy, whatever Brendan wants the Board will do their best to secure it. Rodgers has earned the right to go for Hayes as he thinks he can do a job for him. The fact that you don't understand it means didly scot, in Brendan we should all trust. The offer is on the table for Armstrong and it's up to him to accept it or not, we will not be held to ransom by him after 1 good season plus the fact he was absolute garbage against England. The offer is there for Paddy too so he can take it or leave it. Hail Hail.

9.) 14 Jun 2017 22:50:32
Andy you are a typical panty wetter.
The most successful season in over 10 years has just finished
We are only 4 or 5 days into the transfer window and already your moaning.
Like I said ARMSTRONG stopped the contract negotiations till after Saturdays game. It's only Wednesday and your greeting he hasn't signed
Roberts has repeatedly said he was going to see what was happening at city before he made any decision.

10.) 14 Jun 2017 23:01:59
Kev - expressing an opinion makes someone a "pantywetter"? You're a bloody moron, and that being polite!
I'd like Armstrong to be tied up as soon as possible before some EPL team jump in. I'm inspired by the Hayes pursuit and actually think Christie is a better player anyway.

11.) 15 Jun 2017 06:21:19
I can see your point Kev but I do remember this year there since January being a few times where I thought we could have done with Christie but I suppose like you say, he would spend a lot of his time on the bench. Just hope we don't end up losing him and that it has been made clear that he is definitely in the long term plan. Wasn't all that fussed when he came in but the little I've seen of him in the hoops has been very impressive.

12.) 15 Jun 2017 09:57:33
If Christie was to stay at Celtic next season he would get as much game time as Henderson has just got this season. His development has stagnated as he has players in great form playing in his position. Same can be said about Christie.

Hayes is a vast improvement on GMS who had to play a handful of games last season. It could be late August before any Roberts deal is done. An injury to Sinclair or Forrest leaves us short of pace in the wide areas. The Hayes deal makes perfect sense and after an unbeaten treble people should do well to trust the manager a bit more!

13.) 15 Jun 2017 11:13:32
Agree completely Darylbhoy could not have put it better! Can't understand why people are losing it with Christie going on loan as I would have wanted that regardless of Hayes deal. Same applies with Ajer.

14.) 15 Jun 2017 12:48:48
a lot of talk about hayes not been good enough why not he fits br. s way of playing fast, strong, got an eye for goal, tracks back, is better than gms or jf, people going overboard about armstrong yes he had a very good season but it wasnt against the best if the game against better ops like last sat is anything to go by we should take our time no need to panic.



29 May 2017 09:12:04
Sorry to hound you like some obsessed stalker on this, Ed, but I just read that apparently Celtic and City have agreed a deal for Roberts and it's now up to him to decide if he wants to come back.
Do you know if there is any truth in this?
Thanks matey.


{Ed007's Note - I've said all along that the only stumbling block could be City's demands and it looks like they are happy for Roberts to move here permanently as long as there is a buy back clause in the deal.}

1.) 29 May 2017 14:57:13
Do you have any ballpark ideas of a price for the clause? Is it usually around the selling price?

{Ed007's Note - I don't buddy, sorry.}



26 May 2017 08:07:32
Ed - do you expect an announcement regarding Armstrong signing a new deal today, by way of a boost for tomorrow? I'm desperate for him to stay - I think he has been fabulous this season.
And also, in your opinion, does Man City releasing Navas seriously hamper our chances of signing Roberts permanently?


{Ed007's Note - I don't know about Armstrong's contract but somebody did post they heard it would be announced this week.
Navas leaving City will have no bearing on Roberts' future at City - they're signing Bernardo Silva and still have Raheem Sterling - because he doesn't have one. Roberts agent Galip Kilic intends to meet with Manchester City with the intentions of asking City to make the player available for transfer.}

1.) 26 May 2017 12:18:47
Are there rumours down south of any English teams wanting him Ed? I haven't heard of anybody being interested apart from us but obviously we'd struggle to match any EPL bids.

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard of any English teams showing interest, Kev. I was asking Ed001 and Ed002 the other day if they had heard anything about his situation and they don't know much either except that his time's up at City.}

2.) 26 May 2017 12:47:10
Thanks for the info.
That sounds quite positive regarding our chances of getting him then. fingers crossed!

{Ed007's Note - No probs, Andy. I'm quietly confident that Roberts will be a Celtic player next year. Even the way he's speaking about it himself and not ruling it out is a good sign I reckon.}

3.) 26 May 2017 22:07:42
Keep saying it but the signing of Roberts for me is a must, paddy as our new number 7 will be quality for us and will only improve as well as seeing his value soar. Absolute no brainer of a signing, 6-8 million is a steal for that type of quality.
Here we go 10 in a row.

On a different subject, will they get away with the banners they displayed today? Does anyone know if they were allowed to keep them up or if there will be any retribution for it?




24 Nov 2018 22:54:07
Very good performance today - I thought Benkovic and Boyata were excellent again together (would be fantastic to keep hold of both) , Christie was again superb, and KT was his usual brilliant self, but the standout for me was McGregor - he really has developed into a fabulous player. The fact he is so versatile is also a fine attribute and so valuable to have.


1.) 25 Nov 2018 08:01:06
They're a great partnership let's hope we can keep them at least till the summer.

2.) 25 Nov 2018 11:39:37
Andy, Mally I can’t remember and would need a serious think about the last time we’d a better central defensive partnership than Boyata and Benkovic. Benkovic has the potential to go all the way and the centre half keeping him out the team at Leicester must be some player. Boyata has been outstanding recently. If we can keep both until the end of the season they will make a significant contribution to the points gap. Same as the Ragers goalkeeper will be worth points in double figures to them over the season.

3.) 25 Nov 2018 12:53:00
Good post jfp.

4.) 25 Nov 2018 18:41:46
Boyata has been a strange one for me last season I wouldn't have him even in the reserves all of a sudden this year he has been tremendous. Not sure why the change was it his part in the WC? Or what?

5.) 26 Nov 2018 01:47:47
Boyata is a good defender when he cuts out the silly mistakes. I think Benkovic is better on the ball so having him dictate play from the back is speeding up our attacks as Boyata is a bit slow and indecisive passing it about.

6.) 27 Nov 2018 11:00:09
Boyata knows he is in the shop window now.



01 Oct 2017 13:42:20
Does anyone know if McGregor has been called up to the Scotland squad? I read that he had, but now on the BBC it says he hasn't and that McGregor isn't expecting a call.
If he hasn't, Strachan needs some form of therapy. Or to be sacked. Some of the players in the squad ahead of CM are nowhere near as good as him, but to then have our two main midfielders pull out and not take the opportunity to make amends for the initial mistake is completely unforgivable.


1.) 01 Oct 2017 14:57:03
Strachan is just a helmet, he’d rather have the wee imp Bannan play before McGregor

He has real issues when it’s put to him that a player should be in his team. Remember the start of this qualifying group no Celtic players where in the team

I’ll always watch Scotland even if at times I wish they would scrap the way international football is done. All the teams below a certain ranking should have to qualify for the qualifiers - some of the groups are just full of rubbish.

2.) 01 Oct 2017 15:49:02
Do that to international football, European football would be next.

3.) 01 Oct 2017 17:44:37
Good means he will be fresh for us stuff Scotland

Might even do him as first goal scorer again:-)

4.) 02 Oct 2017 21:45:53
Agree Kev T. For some reason he rates Bannan and Morrison who are both garbage. Can see either playing alongside Fletcher but would be bold to see him go with McGregor and McGinn but too big a game and neither have the experience as is his reluctance to try bring through the new generation of players rather than stick with the ones that's so often failed.



28 Sep 2017 20:01:05
Any idea as to how long the new hotel will take to be open?


1.) 28 Sep 2017 20:49:40
Andy1969, put a wee bet on that the Hotel will be open before Sevco win 3 x games in a row 😀😀.

2.) 28 Sep 2017 23:14:18
Brilliant GT! So that narrows it down to about 25 years! By which time they should manage it in the fourth tier.



23 Sep 2017 18:32:26
Very very comfortable again today.
I thought Brown was brilliant today, as was Armstrong alongside him.
A few more things:
Pedro reaffirmed that he is completely round the bend and clueless.
The currants have their new Diouf in the despicable - and totally inept - Morelos (I think he was offside more than he touched the ball) .
Armstrong is back to his best.
Great to see Boyata fit again.
Andy Walker is a moron.
It was never a penalty to them in a million years, but predictably, there was no mention of when Roberts was booted in the area.
Lovendkrands epitomises why they will never catch us again - the level of delusion in his summary was incredible. Well, I think, that's if I deciphered his ridiculous accent correctly.
Hail hail - happy days!

And a recent poll stated that 81% of Celtic fans would snap Porto's arm off for £14 million for Ntcham, so does that invalidate your opinion?

Maybe not, but I'm entitled to my opinion nonetheless - and I know a lot of people who agreed with me, so keep your patronising comments to yourself.

I don't need to. Brown was, in my opinion, far better on the day. Yes Ntcham played well that day, but that was the last time I've even seen earn pass marks. £14 million for him would be better than any other deal in which we've taken big money.

You're talking rubbish Kev. Ntcham wasn't even our best midfielder when he "ran the show" as you put it. And he's lived off that game ever since!

One other thing - does anyone know when the referees write their reports? I mean, surely Beaton must have looked back and thought "damn, I'd bette say I saw that or he will get banned". What a shamble of a "system".

03 Jan 2019 16:07:03
No case to answer. I shouldn't be surprised, but I am staggered. If Beaton claims that he saw all of these incidents and that they were acceptable, he should not be allowed to referee any further matches.
Downright cheating in the extreme.
