Just posted a photo of the new kit in the sightings page that was supposedly leaked online. Ifit is, its a belter!




24 Apr 2017 20:16:00
50th anniversary home kit to be unveiled at CP on the 4th of May. Here Celtic, take my credit card details now!


1.) 24 Apr 2017 23:19:28
Im expecting a cracker of a jersey this time around. Better not be a let down. Still get it anyways๐Ÿ˜Š.

2.) 24 Apr 2017 23:54:34
Anythin leaked yet online?

3.) 25 Apr 2017 09:24:20
Not a thing, they are keeping this one pretty shtum. wouldn't surprise me if it was of similar style to the Lions kit.

4.) 25 Apr 2017 13:58:45
Hopefully plenty of hoops in the design.

5.) 25 Apr 2017 19:33:13
ok lads this is the sellik offishul site so jist pit aw yur details doon here >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
bank cairds expiry dates etc etc.

6.) 26 Apr 2017 13:44:10
Leaked now online and it does look a belter.

{Ed007's Note - This?


Apart from it looking like something you'd get at a market stall in Turkey, JP Taylor has confirmed that it's not real.}

7.) 26 Apr 2017 15:45:46
I'd like something along those lines but that does look to cheap and nasty to be the real deal. Haven't bought a top for quite a while but might just invest if the new one's smart.

8.) 26 Apr 2017 17:40:01
I was hoping for a gold badge.

9.) 26 Apr 2017 20:01:48
I think a white badge and nb logo on the white hoop would help make it look as close to the lions kit as possible, plain and beautiful, as it should be.

10.) 27 Apr 2017 18:20:50
That's the one Ed, I like it, Agree with others be nice with a gold badge an NB.

11.) 28 Apr 2017 20:37:23
Heard that it will have a gold lion badge on the back at the neck with 25/ 5/ 67 and a something round the badge

Also that there maybe a player only top for the final as it is being played 27/ 5 closest match to the date similar to what Man Utd wore to commemorate the busby babes

It's rumours so take what you will from that.

12.) 28 Apr 2017 20:43:44
Attached image of the badge only 50 years rather than 40 and one fir the back below the neck

Ed how to I add pics.

{Ed007's Note - Go onto the sightings page and you can send pics in.}

The proposed ยฃ8m coming our way should be treated like the windfall it is, not included in the running costs of the club. I get my wages to pay for my mortgage and bills. Sometimes a wee win at the bookies comes my way and I never use the money for the household accounts. I go out and blow it on goodies. Come on Peter, go buy some goodies!


1.) 29 Aug 2017 16:39:43
lawwell would sell his granny, there's cash by the millions stockpiled up there and he won't spend any of it, he's only interested in building hotels and the fat cat fans, he even awards himself a pay rise.

2.) 29 Aug 2017 16:49:11
James i get the impression your not a fan of lawell.

3.) 29 Aug 2017 16:53:12
If a ch does not come in this window then we have missed the boat again and will put a real dampner on an otherwise excellent time to be a celtic fan, but if a ch and a keeper come in then celtic for me have the best squad iv witnessed so far๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ˜Ž.

4.) 29 Aug 2017 19:25:56
Criticise PL all u want but we would not have a sniff of that kind of money if it wasn't for him.
So instead of criticising maybe u should praise him for the possibilty of it, typical fan tho spending the money before we get it.
I once knew a club that did that what happenened to them lol.

5.) 29 Aug 2017 20:40:25
Rayman - I could see your point if Celtic actually had spent money and serious money at that but we don't and have not for a while.

Everyone knows a CH is needed to compliment Jozo - Lawell and BR say if needed we can pay big money

Well . guess what it is needed so get spending on a top CH for progress in Europe or we will be on the end of some proper beatings.

6.) 29 Aug 2017 22:43:04
we've not spent last years yet, what's the point in having millions and not spending it on improving the team?

7.) 29 Aug 2017 23:19:58
With the windfall a decent chunk of it should be reinvested in raking in more potential profit. ยฃ4.5m for a really promising up and coming CB and hopefully in the long run he will follow in the footsteps of VVD and earn us a tidy sell on down the line.

8.) 30 Aug 2017 09:35:15
It seems as if we sit about then have a mad scramble which usually ends in feck all. It seems saying you will get players in prior to the qualifiers is only a saying. when teams know you have no time and a gaping hole in your team pushes up prices and reduces our ability to negotiate. Any way you look at that it's s balls up.

Lawell turning up with a bundle of fivers won't cut it. Or I should say, it doesn't if you are serious above moving up a level.

Hopefully for Lawell not getting the players in everyone knows we need, won't affect his bonus. That would be a real shame.



26 Aug 2017 14:42:13
Come on Celtic, let's get back to being invincible today!




22 Aug 2017
New image uploaded to the
Celtic Player Sightings page entitled, Sevco away top is a belter! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚


1.) 22 Aug 2017 21:31:56
Looks like my boy's pished on the top part. Classy.

2.) 22 Aug 2017 22:00:44
No that is supposed to be all red they have already spilled there kebab sauce over the tap of it :-)



12 Aug 2017 23:09:06
Not biased or anything but we would have ripped Chelsea a new one today. EPL the best league in the world? ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.


1.) 13 Aug 2017 07:38:24
The same as we did to partick๐Ÿ˜‰.

Job done. Well done bhoys! ๐Ÿ€๐Ÿ€.

C'mon Ed, it must have happened! The USA told us it did so it must have. Some of the conspiracy theories are funny though. My favourite being the stars and stripes flag planted 'fluttered' on a moon with no weather. They said it was caused by someone opening a door in the studio!
And Beardy, I thought we matched City quite well in both ties.


{Ed007's Note - Kubrick would never have let a schoolboy error like that slide on any of his sets let alone one as important as pulling the wool over the world's eyes. ;)

It's looking more like this lad is being motivated by money. What are West Brom, Bournemouth or Burnley ever going to do apart from get humped by teams week in, week out? He has a chance to be a star for a team that wins things. If he has any doubts, we should make his mind up for him and cash in. There are plenty more decent midfielders out there who would crawl through broken glass to play in the hoops. Sign up or get lost son!

Fair enough Ed, but by then we should have a few targets identified, even If we don't hear about them!


{Ed007's Note - Definitely, Rab. There might not be any new signings by then - there probably will be though - but they will be in the pipeline.}

The way I see it Dermot Desmond brought Brendan Rodgers to the club after last seasons debacle in the Scottish Cup where one of the worst performances in recent times, Celtic were beaten on penalties by a Sevco side flying high in the Championship. Dermot would have set up the initial meeting with Brendan Rodgers and his people and in that meeting a lot would have been discussed about what exactly both parties wanted out of the management team. Any going back on what was said then would almost inevitably see the working relationship dissolve. I can't see any signs of that just now, all I see is a very well run football club in all departments. It's very early days and the season is just finished so let's wait and see what happens over the next few weeks. After a break I'm sure the management will be working overtime to get the team in place for next season.
The reason you are not hearing anything coming out of CP is because we carry out our business in a quiet dignified way not a complete circus act like the shamsters down Govan way. We might be financially sound at the moment but there's no need to be reckless. If we get to the first qualifier without having new players in place, I would start getting concerned.


{Ed007's Note - I wouldn't be too concerned if there's no new faces for the first qualifiers, Rab as long as we haven't lost anyone i.e. Dembele.}

Johnny Hayes for Celtic? GTF! Not good enough for our reserves! Paper talk by lazy hacks again. Get used to it, silly summer has started, happens every year.

There is a very strange mood going on with the currants I work with. Call it blind faith or delusion, most of them actually think their team is coming up to par with us. Even after I pointed out that in both games against Partick, they struggled to beat a side who were playing poorly. I have seen no evidence lately that the cheats eleven are improving. One guy I spoke to had his head firmly back on the ground and stated that in the 30 years he's supported Rangers (didn't have the heart to remind him it was 25 + 5 supporting New Rangers) , it's the worst team he's seen and thinks Celtic will annihilate them.
I remember the pre McCann days when we were awful. I used to stand in the jungle saying this would improve, it had to. We were losing games by the bucketload. I don't think anyone at that time realised how dire things were, we really were days from getting wound up. All this while the establishment looked on, unhelpful and Murray's magical moonbeam tax haven who couldn't wait for us to go bust.
Everytime we hump them, I think back to those dark days and think to myself, GIRFUY!

One thing that has come out of this is we need to be aware that wee turnip heid Morales will cheat to get one of our boys sent off. He rolls about the floor more than a dug with fleas.
No word of him kicking and headbutting other players.
No mercy on Saturday. We need to fly out the traps and squash this bunch of duds straight away. 3-0 Celtic.

I watched with genuine interest to see if the new lad Moreles was as good as they were raving about. Well taken goal but a very average player with a fiery Latino temper. that's never good in the cauldron of hate that the newest Glasgow derby throws up. No concerns about how we tackle this team. We should hammer them, and then some.

You've a short memory Kiwi. Last years group stage wasn't a complete disaster. Barcelona was the horror show and the defeat to the Germans was a sore one but we also showed the ability to compete with one of the most expensive teams in England. Of course money is ruining it. I actually think football will implode because of it but Celtic at the very least have to be in the champions league for the exposure it gives us to the rest of European football.
We need a bit of perspective here. Not only did they have Mbappe and the other wee fud but they had Cavani who in my opinion, is a simply brilliant footballer. Those three alone cost more than the whole of Scottish football put together. We pick ourselves up and get ready for Anderlecht who are more our level.
