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.


{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.



27 Apr 2017 15:33:44
Any news on Scott Brown's appeal appeal anyone? I can't find anything anywhere and thought it was due today.


{Ed007's Note - The SFA have just announced that the claim of wrongful dismissal has been upheld and that Brown's red card has been reduced to a yellow.
Brown is now available for selection for Saturday's trip to face TRIFC at Ibrox.}

1.) 27 Apr 2017 16:46:39
Lets all do the broony.

2.) 27 Apr 2017 17:23:55
Fantastic! Thank you very much for that.
The currants will be raging.!

{Ed007's Note - They're rage is only hiding their fear of what might happen on Saturday. Broony might even break sweat during the next match!}

3.) 27 Apr 2017 18:52:44
Is it true that he will miss the next 2 games after that as he will be over the yellow card threshold?

{Ed007's Note - As far as I know, Tony you're spot on with that.}

4.) 27 Apr 2017 19:46:06
Thanks Ed.

{Ed007's Note - You're welcome mate.}

5.) 27 Apr 2017 20:52:44
Scott Brown break sweat on Saturday? Do you really think they can improve that much in one week? Ha ha. Or will it him worrying about the daily rangers report about Garner and Wallace's wedding plans being scuppered by early pre-season training. in which they didn't clarify it wasn't to each other.

{Ed007's Note - I'll bet £20 that Garner's wedding ends in a punch up.}

6.) 27 Apr 2017 21:31:16
Attempted. I'm not sure he'll manage to connect!

{Ed007's Note - I'd never ever heard of him. Ed003 is the go to guy for obscure diddies in the English lower leagues and the first thing he told me was that Garner could start a fight in an empty phonebox.}

7.) 27 Apr 2017 21:58:19
The way the little twat has been since arriving in Scotland would certainly back that up! Revolting rat bag. Nearly as bad as Miller.



17 Apr 2017 22:05:54
Please tell me there is no chance whatsoever of the rumour about John Terry joining Celtic having any chance of being true. Alongside Diouf, the most vile creature associated with football ever in my opinion.


1.) 18 Apr 2017 09:42:04
He has played in a celtic top before! . stans charity match.

2.) 18 Apr 2017 11:49:41
If he was willing to take the necessary wage drop, I wouldn't hesitate. Surely we need to look at guys of his experience if we want to improve in Europe?

3.) 18 Apr 2017 13:29:33
Bit of a nob but a quality CB.

4.) 18 Apr 2017 14:20:43
He's mentioned a few times he's a fan. wouldn't be for me but, we should be looking for a quality centre half and there's no doubt in his day he was! But that day was a long time ago, he's finished IMO. add to that he sounds and looks a first class baw bag! The players would need to keep their other halves away from the games to 😂😂😳.

5.) 18 Apr 2017 14:21:50
Mikeb443, how is a guy that is well over the hill going to improve us for Europe?

6.) 18 Apr 2017 14:38:00
Terry must be the latest player lined up for the tribute act for next season, remember they can sell 8 players and get enough money to pay Terry his weekly wage, the same idea they have for Wayne Rooney . Lol.

7.) 18 Apr 2017 17:53:46
Kev83, I'm not so sure he is well over the hill, but if he's not right then so be it.
I personally think he still has a lot to offer any team. At times we lack solidity, composure and leadership in our defence and he's a man that has all that plus big game experience.

8.) 18 Apr 2017 21:09:50
Is he not Clint hills dad?

9.) 18 Apr 2017 21:14:00
Kolo was a failed experiment at his age and don't see us repeating it with JT. I don't think we should be buying EPL has beens as it only adds fuel to their fire with respect to the standard of Scottish football in the Brexiteers opinion.

10.) 18 Apr 2017 22:45:09
John Terry said that he chose to follow Celtic because his brother preferred the Huns, just to have a bit of rivalry - he doesn't have any genuine fondness for the club. On top of that, I have never ever seen why he was consodered even decent: his positioning has always been atrocious and he's about as quick as a pregnant blue whale. on land. And he's past even that.

11.) 18 Apr 2017 22:55:48
Think he was shown up in international matches, to be another over hyped premier prima Donna.

12.) 19 Apr 2017 10:22:32
Jfp1888, I not so sure kolo was a failed experiment.
I don't think we would have made champions league without him.
That last qualifying game he made all the difference at the end.
But there have been more failures signing old players from epl than successes.

13.) 19 Apr 2017 13:52:38
I'm sure the signing of kolo was to help steady the defence short term and just to have his experience in and around the team . The long term was always to be part of brendans coaching team .

14.) 19 Apr 2017 14:07:16
Kolo brought stability to the defence, when it needed it.

15.) 19 Apr 2017 19:06:24
this is the same Rafael we got about Gerrard.

Brendan is building a young competitive team and that would be a backward step.

16.) 20 Apr 2017 11:42:05
id take but don't see it happening, i think he's still the best cb chelsea have.



17 Mar 2017 20:25:36
I see on "football london" that aresenal are apparently considering a bid for Tierney. They go on to state that a bid of £15 million would be required.
Pardon? Pop another zero on the end and they can still get stuffed. Putting it into context, Luke Shaw went to Man U for £27 million rising to £31 million and the clown who penned this comes up with this figure for a player who is ten times what Shaw will ever be! I hope he sticks his pen where the sun doesn't shine. Or if he uses a computer, all the better as it will hurt more.
It does my brain in - you only have to win a throw-in in and be English to be worth tens of millions, and they come up with valuation.


1.) 17 Mar 2017 21:12:44
unless celtic accept a bid for tierney he won't leave, according to people close to him he has no interest in leaving celtic.



03 Oct 2016 21:17:38
Just read that Dembele may be asked by England to represent them in 2017 after spending 5 years in the UK. Would he also be eligible for Scotland at that time does anyone know?


1.) 03 Oct 2016 22:14:30
He'd be mad to consider either.

2.) 04 Oct 2016 14:53:53
Said he's committed to France.

3.) 04 Oct 2016 20:24:23
i hate all this Rafael.

the engrlish did it with januzai when he scored a goal or two, they were peeing their pants, talking to experts blah blah blah - now the kid cannae get a game for sunderland.

these stories are just utter pee pee

lets not put that kind of pressure on his shoulders.

4.) 06 Oct 2016 23:03:16
Scored a beautiful for France (u21) tonight.

5.) 10 Oct 2016 00:50:38
I disagree as well. It was a terrible finnish. Holding off a defender, while falling, timing the strike with the looping ball lay off and hitting a volley into the top corner from an angle that didn't seem possible. I'd let him run down his contract in the reserves he is poison.

17 May 2017 13:56:41
Ed - do you think there is any chance of Elyanoussi joining? I saw something though can't remember where!, that he might be available. I don't know a lot about him except that there eas great excitement when he was linked previously.
Personally, I hope we keep Roberts and add a CAM and possibly extra CB.
I have to say, though, that if we keep the first team squad intact, it's the first time I can think of where I would happy enough to start the season with what we have already. I think the pool of players look really strong and apart from the excitement new signings bring and the idea of strengthening from a position of strength, I think we look in pretty good shape.


{Ed007's Note - I think the Elyanoussi boat has long sailed past us and I'd expect any bid by us would be blown out the water by an EPL club.}

1.) 17 May 2017 14:31:42
Just read that victor betting has placed us second favs to land Delph from Man C. definitely the start of the silly season.

{Ed007's Note - I seen something earlier about that, no chance of that happening.}

2.) 17 May 2017 17:09:45
I don't rate him not any better than what's there would be disappointed but as u said ED never going to happen. Would like to see Ebouie get a run in the next two games c what he has to offer.

3.) 17 May 2017 19:30:09
Ed have you heard anything about Darlington Nagbe, was told today we might try again.

{Ed007's Note - No mate I haven't.}

4.) 17 May 2017 21:16:12
Thanks Ed.
I wouldn't touch Delph with yours.! As said above, not better than we already have, in fact if go as far as to say worse than our back up players.



16 May 2017 12:12:02
Madden is cup final ref.
Why don't they go the whole hog and just appoint Ian Paisley.


{Ed007's Note - He's been dead 2 years and I doubt Satan or Thatcher would give him a day pass.}

1.) 16 May 2017 12:16:06
He'd fit in perfectly then with the zombies then.

{Ed007's Note - I'm saying he died 2 years ago, it might have been his parent company.}

2.) 16 May 2017 12:20:34
Ha ha - excellent!
They could still wheel him out then!

{Ed007's Note - His son is also called Ian and is an MP. If it's called Ian Paisley, looks like Ian Paisley and acts like Ian Paisley we can only assume using Zombie logic that it's the same Ian Paisley.}

3.) 16 May 2017 12:23:52
ian paisley jnr maybe.

{Ed007's Note - IT'S THE SAME IAN PAISLEY, TIMMY!!!! #obsessed

4.) 16 May 2017 12:27:05
But he doesn't support the same club, even though he thinks he does.

5.) 16 May 2017 12:41:47
It's THE Ian Paisley.

{Ed007's Note - Did the old Ian Paisley get a vote on whether the new The International Ian Paisley could get in?}

6.) 16 May 2017 14:03:35
I think he just bought him for a quid.

{Ed007's Note - :-D

7.) 16 May 2017 15:47:31
Plenty work to be done on the coffin.



14 May 2017 21:50:41
Forgive me if I being a bit slow here - but I not just realised that we have scored in every single domestic game this season.
Has that ever been done before?




02 May 2017 17:52:23
Scott Brown is not among the POTY nominations. What is that all about? And how anyone from any other club made either nomination is beyond me.


1.) 02 May 2017 18:20:35
The honest truth is that Celtic players are so far ahead of any opponent in Scotland for consistency, skill and class. The bottom line is we have had several players who have excelled all season, while others have had purple patches at important times of the season keeping the standards and performances at an all-time high and there could have been at least six or seven nominated for their efforts.

2.) 02 May 2017 18:40:00
Just heard them joke about broonys omission . Says it's cool, he is going to appeal 😂😂 as for Hayes inclusion? Celtic players can't vote for each other! So this? And players who couldn't bring themselves to vote for any Celtic player ( anyone but Celtic ) made johnny Hayes the best of the rest.

3.) 02 May 2017 21:19:13
Please tell me there isny any sevco players nominated.

30 Apr 2017 23:33:08
I see in the Scotsman that Miller is slating Simunovic for using "excessive force". I think I've already made it clear how much I detest Miller, but after his attempt to break Armstrong's legs earlier in the season, how in the name of God has this fool got the front to even question what was a brilliant and superbly timed fair tackle? I'm utterly astounded that Miller got away with his "challenge" but to come out with this? Words fail me.


{Ed007's Note - I have never liked Kenny Miller as a player or a man but I had a grudging respect for him. Over the last few seasons he has become nothing more than an odious rat who seems to be modelling himself on Slug McCoist.}

1.) 01 May 2017 00:03:42
Agree Ed. I was the same as you. respect etc. but not now. Bit like Warburton at the start and then they have to toe the party or rather the lodge line. Say no more. best to all from a sunny Tenerife.

{Ed007's Note - Even Pedro seems like a decent sort of bloke, that's not going to fit in over there and he'll get chewed up and spat out by the bigots just like Warburton was.}

2.) 01 May 2017 01:36:49
I can't and won't be critical of a poor b@star* blind with rage and clearly unstable. He backflips like a Russian gymnast
No bad for his age. For 5's.

{Ed007's Note - Miller will NEVER go in for a 50/50 with Jozo again. Any time the big man looks Miller in the eye he'll know a tackle like that is lurking like a ninja ready to strike.
I want a T-shirt that says Simunovic could have blocked the 'magic bullet' that hit JFK.}

3.) 01 May 2017 06:23:25
Miller, can't go the badge kissing, odius wee tool. Jozos tackle was a thing of beauty. A tackle that was both clean and precise. Every time you watch it back it just gets better and better! Sour grapes from a player firmly entrenched in the Sevco machine. A horrible cog fitting in perfectly with the blue brogue agenda. BBC's coverage showed no sign or mention of the disgusting incidents following Sinky's penalty but was I surprised? Was I hell.
Never in all my years as a Celtic fan have I ever felt as if the institution are closing ranks as of now. Journalists sniping us with backhand comments, terrified or just unwilling to report of the dodgy goings on inside Ibrox. A major court case involving more suspect twists and turns than a Hitchcock novel gets next to no coverage and an SFA so inept it would make Fawlty Towers look like the Waldorf Astoria. Celtic do remarkably well to deal with the manure it gets thrown.
We are on top of the world just now and the huns are raging. They can't stand it and are fighting back the only way they can, by using dirty tricks and smear campaigns promoted by their own MSM. Their 'loyal peepul' are a stain on Scottish football, disgusting racist, sectarian bigots who can't even bring themselves to sing songs about their players but revert to singing the old chants of killing fenians and child abuse. The quicker they go bust the better as far as I am concerned.

4.) 01 May 2017 08:25:02
Excessive force in a tackle? Your either committed or your not. I can't stop watching the tackle in the modern game it's the hardest fairest tackle your allowed and was simply outstanding.

5.) 01 May 2017 09:41:07
I hate Miller, absolutely detest him. But I just cannot fathom how he can possibly have the brass neck to complain about a perfectly good tackle after what he attempted to do to Armstrong. I think that was the worst action in terms of potentially ending someone's career that I have ever seen - he knows exactly what he's trying to do and has somehow escaped with any recrimination and virtually without any mention in the media. And he complains about this.

6.) 01 May 2017 09:48:49
Agreed Campsie. Excessive force my anus. It was a thing of beauty.

7.) 01 May 2017 09:53:27
Absolute class tackle from the big man, took the ball completely, was fair and hard. That's a proper defenders challenge n to even suggest it was a foul or excessive clearly shows how thick sevconians are but also how much of a nugget miller is.
We were the better team all over the park and in the stands and unfortunately for sevco this is their future, well that is until the new team go bust and then we get the 3rd incarnation pretending to be rangers, zombies united has a good ring to it.
Here we go 10 in a row.

8.) 01 May 2017 11:02:44
Miller is and always will be a football mercenary, who will kiss the badge of any club willing to offer him money! I hate the fact he's actually played for our club! Well I use the words played loosely because he was utter pish! Somes him up when they've just been humped 5 going on 10 he's greetin about a exceptional challenge from jozo! Everybody could see it was an outstanding challenge but they'll do or say anything to deflect from the fact that there new club is a shambles from top to bottom! And I for one love it that millers signed on for another season of pain and suffering! Because I like nothing better than seeing his and all the other RRM faces when we've firmly put them in there place! HH.

9.) 01 May 2017 11:04:07
Also had to watch Miller going off his nut when he failed to get Brown booked for that 'elbow'. Hate that stuff at the best of times but his reaction when the ref just spoke to Brown (over nothing really) shows how cynical Miller is. The Jozo tackle was nothing short of perfection.

10.) 01 May 2017 11:29:14
Davie, Lh - I totally agree. I was gutted when we signed Miller and the badge kissing when he scored against them just didn't ring true (obviously I was leaping about at the time, but when I saw it later, it did make me think. ) . But Miller is one of the nastiest little guys in the game - maybe it's because he's one of them, maybe it's his age or perhaps a combination of the two, but he appears to get away with whatever he wants, and even gets praised for it! It was exactly the same with David Weir - he was old and past it (whatever "it" was because I always thought he was a shocking footballer) but they portrayed him as a gentleman and consequently he got away with everything. I'll never forget a blatant penalty being denied us after he took out Maloney, but because he's old and slow and because he's David Weir.
It's exactly the same with Miller now. He doesn't deserve to ever set foot on a pitch again after the Armstrong incident, instead he gets their POTY award. Says it all really.

11.) 01 May 2017 11:32:11
Its a shame Neil McCann was busy he would have piped up with; If you look at it, the speed of the tackle is what concerns me, just like Scott Browns tackle on Boyce. Celtic players are tackling too fast and with too much speed. Im surprised they didn't complain that Armstrong was too quick getting the touch on the ball for the second goal. He won that challenge far too quickly and probably deserved a yellow for his quickness. New SFA guidelines, yellow cards if you win tackles too quickly.

12.) 01 May 2017 08:46:26
Ed007 bigrab! Just been on the sly sports app for a morning update on all things football. They have a story running about how that tackle went unpunished? ! How it incensed the home support . And how we it allowed us to nearly score! Talk about biased reporting . It was an outstanding tackle .

{Ed007's Note - There will be defenders all over the world wishing they had made a tackle like that. Not just the tackle either but to use the ref to play a wall pass to Broony too!! :-D

13.) 01 May 2017 12:40:45
Delbhoy - are you serious? What in the name of God is next? In trouble for scoring because it upsets the home support? I can't believe all this crap, I really can't. How can they justify any of this? You'd swear we had played 11 ineligible players!

{Ed007's Note - I seen a few roasters trying to justify the racism aimed at Sinclair by asking why he didn't run to his own fans to celebrate, the fact they were at the other end of the pitch probably had something to do with it ffs!}

14.) 01 May 2017 13:00:17
In live chat I offered to pay big Jozo's fine if he lit a cigar after that tackle

All Miller did was try to get Jozo and Brown in bother because he knew how much of a doing they were on too

When SS ran down that flank they were flinging full coke cartoons at him but not a jot mentioned anything about the battery that was flung @ LG? No no must not upset the culprits and as for the fud doing the monkey bit what an arrrs in this day and age hope he knows a lawyer that really won't want to touch him his door will be getting chapped if it hasn't already!

15.) 01 May 2017 13:35:13
Garner came on and was throwing himself all over the place trying to get Boyata sent off too. Pure desperation from them it's embarrassing.

16.) 01 May 2017 14:17:30
Yes Andy1969. On the app! As for ed's comment on jozo magic bullet t-shirt? Have you seen the montage on fb of the tackle? Where at the end the put jozo's face on Ivan drago? IF HE DIES HE DIES! The t-shirt are on line haaaa al try upload a pic 😂😂😂.

17.) 01 May 2017 23:15:04
Big Jozo's tackle was the best tackle i've ever seen. take a bow big man👏👏👏.

{Ed007's Note - I'm quite proud of my tackle and ain't shy to show it off so I can't say Jozo's is THE best I've ever seen.......... ;-)
The question should be is it the best hard tackle Kenny Miller's ever seen?}

18.) 02 May 2017 10:43:45

If this is the case, I think it would be fantastic! Potentially, it's heavily offset if van Dyjk moves. So that would be a net outlay of a little over a million for our top target.
Keeping my fingers crossed now!

I also get both your points, but I'm so frustrated at the fact we never realise the full value of players that we sell - for example, no on will convince me tha van Dykk has improved fourfold since he has been in England, but the transfer fees baing bandied about imply he has. I mean, win a throw-in the epl and suddenly you are a precocious talent worth multi millions of pounds. They are patronising beyond belief and I just think that as we are in a strong position regarding Dembele being only one year into his contract, and the fact that he genuinely seems happy here, we should be saying along the lines of "we listened but they fell short of our valuation". As has been said time and again, we don't have to sell, so let's not let them force out hand unless they pay too whack.
Also, I don't know how true it was, but allegedly, Celtic knocked back £34 million from Chelsea in January. If that was the case when the league was all but sewn up, why would sell for less with CL qualifiers now on the horizon?
Finally, off point, but Adrian Durham is a total ringpiece. Just had to get that off my chest!
