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 anyways😊.

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.}

New image uploaded to the
Celtic Player Sightings page entitled, Come home Pedro, mission accomplished!!




28 Oct 2017 17:02:13
What can you say about that? Go to Aberdeen, our strongest challengers and blow them away. Home to this mob? We blow it. Doesn't help when their sole aim is to stop us scoring. Never mind parking the bus, I think Trump should use them to keep the Mexicans out of the US. Saying that, they played the perfect game that only a club of their capabilities can play against us. Frustrate and counter.


1.) 28 Oct 2017 17:53:27
Just back from the game, another poor show! Thought the passing wasn’t ok first half but we ran out of ideas in the final 3rd! Only really quality was the goal and finish! We all like to go back on about the quality of the squad but that’s 3 home games Scott browns missed and not a victory from any of them! If these players really want to push into that starting 11 they have to step there game up massively imo! And far to many of our top performers last year are really struggling this year, Sinclair Armstrong and paddy to name but a few! Not panicking or anything like that because we’re still on top and into the first cup final of the season! Just a bit of a worry that some fringe players are not ready for the step up! We played probably our best domestic match under Rodgers 3 days ago then serve up that today!

2.) 28 Oct 2017 18:08:18
Disappointed with todays display and team selection. 3 matches at home this season wuth 6 points dropped. Poor show especially after Wednesday's performance.

3.) 28 Oct 2017 18:49:15
6 points dropped at home is the annoying thing but when we get champions league out the way the after burners will go on hh.

4.) 28 Oct 2017 19:02:11
Agree bhoys but in the grand scheme of things it won't matter a jot. Like Wednesday night we can raise our game when needed provided it's a strong eleven. Some lads do need to step up to the plate when required. Main disappointment was Paddy's injury but let's be positive bhoys. Big night coming up midweek nights that the rest of this league can only dream about.

5.) 28 Oct 2017 19:24:19
Every time we play a big midweek fixture we struggle at home after resting the main bhoys but that team today should have been good enough for 3 points. at least we're still undefeated.

6.) 28 Oct 2017 21:11:12
It was very much a second string team. We don't have the strength in depth but i don't think we are as fluent as we were last season. Paddy hasn't got back to where he was. Sinclair the same but when you put Dembele in then its much better but its just as well we have no real opposition as we are behind points wise compared to last season and Aberdeen have more than this time last season but we produce when we need to.

7.) 28 Oct 2017 22:33:15
not too bovered, we are top of the league and will be by the end of the season, sure we shoulda won today, but we will be top by the end of the season, maybe by a few less points but if it means we tinker with the squad - for the sake cl games - or just to give the squad a game - then that's okay, knowing we have a squad that can step up and beat our closest rivals convincingly.

Not worried.

Looking forward to Tuesday.

8.) 29 Oct 2017 09:20:36
Although if this was ronnys team near November :)



30 Sep 2017 17:32:21
Poor second half for us. Hibs must have been told by Lenny to press us harder up the park. They just seemed more determined to get to every second ball. The boy McGinn was given far to much respect. To be fair, it was a great game spoiled again by Scotlands worst referee. That man should be investigated for some of his decisions. Absolute shocker!


1.) 30 Sep 2017 18:02:14
Was it a penalty? Looked lie it at the end?

2.) 30 Sep 2017 18:29:54
Stone wall penalty.

3.) 30 Sep 2017 20:43:38
Pen all day and if it was advantage he should still have pulled it back because he did it for hibs but is he not a hibee.



29 Sep 2017 08:52:10
How about a poll Ed, should Celtic invest money in infrastructure at Parkhead or spend the money on the team?


{Ed033's Note -

Celtic money poll

1.) 29 Sep 2017 09:29:05
Spending money on players doesn't guarantee success unless you are spending money like PSG.
Spending money on a decent coach was tge best signing we ever made. Brendan has turned average players i to top players and our football style has an identity and a putpose for the first time in years. Team almost reminds me of what Tommy Burns tried to achieve all tgem years ago.

2.) 29 Sep 2017 09:45:44
Building a hotel/ museum if great but I think the south stand is a priority as it needs major upgrade as it's embarrassing that a tent has to be put up on champions league match days outside the ground for media interviews. Celtic have done so much to improve the area and facilities but the south stand is a joke for facilities.

{Ed007's Note - But we need a CB don't we? Why would we waste money on upgrading the stadium when the team's apparently not good enough?}

3.) 29 Sep 2017 09:56:37
I'm 100% for developing the area around Parkhead. With a new Hotel and possible capacity extension, it will boost the appeal for hosting big games like a CL final. It also provides new revenue otherwise untapped. All this is great news as long as the team doesn't suffer because of it.

4.) 29 Sep 2017 10:49:55
In football terms we need a lot more than just a CB to progress, but don't you think the south stand is antiquated in comparison to the rest of the ground?

{Ed007's Note - I was being flippant after reading some of the posts, Jim. I do think the South Stand needs upgrading (changing rooms, opposition arrival area and press area etc) but I wouldn't be keen on increasing the capacity as there would be a lot of empty spaces when we are playing smaller teams.
Wait until we are, hopefully, in the EL after Christmas and see the attendance at that, remember there's a lot of supporters and posters who don't think we should be playing in the EL and that if it's not the CL it's a waste of time.}

5.) 29 Sep 2017 11:41:41
How can really positive news be spun into a negative by some of our fans it does ma head in look at the celtic way by some on here that was a waste of money.

6.) 29 Sep 2017 12:25:14
Don't understand the not wanting to play in the el. it let's us develop in euro terms . gives extra income and a few good nights. also a run keeps us in the view of the football world for future signings. on the stadium transfer issue why can't and shoudnt we be doing both.

{Ed007's Note - Just look back through the site from when we were in the EL and see how some people spoke about it and look at the attendances at the matches.}

7.) 29 Sep 2017 18:17:27
Everton have spent a fortune and look at the state of them.

8.) 29 Sep 2017 18:49:22
Cowdenbeath have spent nothing and look at the state of them.

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.

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.}

No team wants to get humped but PSG in Glasgow was a horror show. As long as the boys go out and play how they know they can we should at the very least, keep the score down. I'm more bothered about Sunday, a game we should win.

Sorry to hear you had a bad one Stan, hope you are ok now. The problem in my opinion about statues outside our ground is that if too many are erected it kind of saturates the significance of them? Whilst I have no doubt that McCann saved our club from extinction, this was part of a business plan that required funding and ultimately paid him a handsome walk away cheque. As the largest asset Fergus left behind, I have no problem with some kind of naming of a stadium area after him.

Tommy though was Mr Celtic. He deserves to be lauded by the club after everything he stood for and naming Lennoxtown after him would be a very fitting tribute as he was so involved in us having a state of the art training academy.

It's a yes from me.

Dear me Chris, check some facts before posting rubbish! Legendary player, great manager up against cheating Minty's millions and a beautiful ambassador for Celtic Football Club.
Lennoxtown should absolutely be named after Tommy Burns and if enough of us petition the club, it has to happen!

So, Pedro goes and is probably relieved. What next for the Ibroken club? No decent manager worth thinking about will go near that basket case of a club, no money to get one in any case. Number 1 scenario is on an 'internal reshuffle' with Miller taking on a coaching role under Murty until they can convince some eedjit to take on the job. Number 2 scenario is Murty might do well and be given the job full time with Miller as assistant, Number 3 scenario, a 'real ranjurz man' is found (Mcleish, Ferguson, Gazza, King William etc etc) Number 4, 5, 6 etc etc. Any of those scenarios are going to cost the club a serious slice of wedge.
