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?

Andy1969

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!

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.

Andy1969

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.
"Pantywetter"?


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.

Andy1969

{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?
Thanks.

Andy1969

{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.


 

 

14 May 2017 10:03:21
Ed - do you know if there is any truth in the Demebele being sold rumours? They seem to be coming from quite a few sources. Thanks.

Andy1969

{Ed007's Note - It's a Sunday, the day the papers have all their rumours and gossip round ups so they need to think up some headline grabbers and trawl the 'net for rumours, didn't this latest story about Dembele start on that HITC which is just kids paid to make up stories?.
The Club have said Dembele is not for sale and the player himself has said he wants to stay and as far as I know nothing has changed.}


1.) 14 May 2017 13:42:12
Thanks mate - that's reassuring. It was even worse to read that he was rated at £20 million - not sure what he could have done wrong for his value to have halved!
Thanks again.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)


2.) 14 May 2017 21:03:25
dembele has a gentlemans agreement with rodgers to play for another season here then rodgers will let him move on.

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.

Andy1969

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.

Any idea as to how long the new hotel will take to be open?

Andy1969

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!

Great performance tonight throughout the team. I'd say Rodgers has a real dilemma as to who to play on Saturday as so many are staking real claims. I can't wait!
By the way, what a superb put down by Chris Sutton to Ally McCoist at the end of the programme tonight. I nearly choked laughing.

Andy1969

1.) 20 Sep 2017 22:45:39
Missed the game andy
What was said?


2.) 20 Sep 2017 23:52:42
Basically, the panel were asked what formation Rodgers would go for at the back on Saturday. McCoist said that you can't play three at the back if you are playing in Europe or against the good teams. He then said that Rangers are one of the better teams, so he would have to go with four. To which big Chris replied "I think Brendan will be thinking whatever formation he plays they are going to win". But it wasn't just the retort - it was the utter contempt with which he looked at fat Sally. I thought it was hilarious!


3.) 21 Sep 2017 07:22:05
not that I am particularly bothered - but why was mcmoist commentating on the game last night.

I get he is there at the end to give his pearls of wisdom - but why commentate throughout the game? He didn't offer anything and wasn't offensive - but I thought the unwritten rule was exhun for ragers games and extim for celtic games.

Can you imagine if Sutton was commentating of the ragers game the night before.

he is actually quite funny, his comments are after something has happened - like if he had been half a yard early - to sound like he is all knowing. funny.


4.) 21 Sep 2017 07:41:18
Cheers andy
I can picture the 'content' on sutty's coupon. Unable to hide it. A thing of beauty!
Big chris will be hoping for another record defeat so he can revisit his 'best squad' debate with Pedro.
Craig Gordon better not slip up or he'll be in line for the Sutton wrath.


5.) 21 Sep 2017 08:59:48
Digbanger- fat sal is trying to rebuild his media career so we may be seeing a bit more of him. He knocked back madrid in the summer so he must be serious about his pundit work again :)


6.) 21 Sep 2017 09:51:05
The last time Sally got a point was on the Question of Sport picture board.


7.) 21 Sep 2017 12:13:28
I absolutely creased myself as it was the very last comment before they ended the show and Sutton does his trademark grin towards the camera at the end knowing full well that any Gers fans are probably spitting venom at their TVs. got to love the big man!

Other than in a blue shirt, I think Neymar is the most revolting individual I have seen at Parkhead.

Andy1969

1.) 12 Sep 2017 22:01:37
I agree. Think he has a better chance of winning an oscar than a ballon d'or. For me his refusal to shake hands with young Ralston was the icing on the cake. PSG have a phenomenal team so not really surprised we lost. Now I know how the other fans feel when they play us in the league. At the end of the day don't care who wins the champions league as long as it is not PSG.


2.) 12 Sep 2017 22:14:54

Malika - Long better than Griffiths? You have to be joking?!?!? He fails per game ratio is terrible and he contributes nothing else. This would be a total waste of money. And I completely agree with Ed - if he wasn't Irish, nobody would be interested in him at all.

Is there any truth in the Hayes rumour? I didn't think he was good enough for us, but to buy a 30 year old and send him out on loan in the same window would be mad!

Again, well said Magicpole.
What I don't understand is the refusal to try and change things. The signings have also been very poor - if reports were tonne believed, Ntcham was far from being our first choice target. It looks to me a bit like a desperation signing. But why? Midfield is our strongest area and we have loads of options. Now we are stuck with a £4.5 million dud who will probably get picked purely to justify the price tag. Brown, Armstrong, Rogic, McGregor, Henderson and even Bitton are better than Ntcham - and that just makes his signing all the more galling.

Andy1969

I agree Magicpole.
I think Ntcham is close to being as bad as N'Guemo - and I thought he was one of the worst players to ever wear a Celtic shirt. Ntcham offers nothing at all - he hardly wins the ball and his distribution is appalling: it's like playing other a man down. McGregor is a far better option and so is Rogic.

Gamboa was an absolute liability as well - his pace is meant to be his main attribute but you would never have known he had any at all based on last nights effort.
I think Rodgers has made mistakes in both the game against PSG and again last night: against PSG Tierney was being pulled inside to almost play as an extra centre back and they had acres of space and time down their right hand side - last night Gamboa was horribly exposed time and time again.

On both occasions Rodgers did nothing to change formation or personnel to try and cut those threats out and we were picked off at will: allowing that to continue without trying to do something about it is. It good enough.

I agree wholeheartedly Lh. If he had never played for Celtic, I would put it down to bitterness, but he has no cause to feel such a way.
He definitely panders to his English colleagues and (mainly) English audience, but I just wish he would shut up - he never makes a valuable contribution, has to be derogatory at all costs to try and seem "in" with his mates and the consequence is that what comes out of his mouth is pure shite.
As you say, "not recovered from the defeat to PSG". just proves him to be a halfwit.
