Do you think Caulker will come to us in January? HH.


1.) 29 Dec 2017 01:32:26
I wish him all the best but he hasn't been released for nothing. He is clearly in a bad way. No disrespect to the guy but it would be a massive gamble. BR talks a lot about identifying players with both the talent and right mentality. The lad is battling deamons. I'd say no on that basis.

2.) 29 Dec 2017 14:51:14
no harm in giving the boy a 6 month contract and let him prove his worth.



22 Jul 2017 23:04:47
Ed, are there any developments on the Caulker rumours? Do you think we'll take a chance on the lad? HH.


{Ed007's Note - I heard there's further talks planned for this week.}

1.) 23 Jul 2017 00:05:10
How did we let that Alves guy slip through our fingers, everyone is saying he is really good,

2.) 23 Jul 2017 00:57:44
Haaaaaaaa, high five.

3.) 23 Jul 2017 13:36:45
We are on to slim pickings for Wednesday defence we only have 4 fit defenders and no first team back ups if we did bring someone in they won't be fit enough to be on bench they 4 will need to tread carefully now.

{Ed007's Note - 4, Rich? Lustig, Sviatchenko, Simunovic, Tierney and Ajer on the bench, or play Ralston at RB and move Lustig in to the middle instead of Erik. I'd be surprised if Rodgers went with 3 at the back again as I think Rosenborg are a bigger threat than Linfield though I don't think they will cause us too many problems and we should comfortably get past them with a couple of goals to spare.}

4.) 23 Jul 2017 13:58:15
Two young bhoys not tested at CL level I think he will go with 4 at the back but as u said the way sviatchenko is playing he mite go with Ralston that could be a shout I don't think we should underestimate Rosenberg BR won't but we definitely need a good first leg to give us a chance due to away form in CL games.

{Ed007's Note - But would you consider Rosenborg CL level? Just because it's a CL tie it's not really CL level imo. For me CL Level is playing against a team that regularly qualifies for it and that's been a while for the Norwegians, didn't they lose to St Johnstone a couple of years ago in the EL and APOEL knocked them out of the CL at this stage last season.
Ajer could have strolled the Linfield game and you wouldn't call them CL Level plus Ajer knows the Norwegian game and knows Rosenborg who I would say aren't any better than Aberdeen and that's me being kind. This Rosenborg team are nowhere near the teams they've had in the past and yes it'll be a tricky away leg but I expect us to win both legs quite comfortably.
If we lose you'll find me in a cave down the Fairhill burn with no wi-fi :)

5.) 23 Jul 2017 14:52:02
We've got to try ajer at some point in a competitive game why not rosenberg.

6.) 23 Jul 2017 14:39:20
Lmao ed doon the fairhill burn, watch oot fir the burnt oot motors n shopping trolleys.

{Ed007's Note - Sounds like you know it well lol}

7.) 23 Jul 2017 14:53:27
Well let's hope it doesn't come to that ED haha so do u think this Caulker discussion may turn to a deal being done or not?

{Ed007's Note - I think it depends on how Caulker feels in himself and about moving up here. There's definitely a chance of a deal.}

8.) 23 Jul 2017 15:02:32
How do we find out a player is CL level without playing him?

9.) 23 Jul 2017 17:09:33
Rosenborg may not be as good as they were but they are still the Norwegian champs. Molde beat us home and away less than 2 years ago so there are some decent teams/ players in that league. We should win but I don't think it will be easy especially with no GB and being at home first is always a dodgy. I'd be delighted with 2-0 on Wednesday night.

{Ed007's Note - I'd be happy with that.}

10.) 23 Jul 2017 17:32:38
was it just my eyes or did broonie drop into left cb in the linfield game?

just went they pressed - which wasn't very often.

Maybe we will do that again - he's not a cb but he has a calm head and we have an abundance of midfielders.

I am a little nervous of Rosenberg - they were regular qualifiers a few years ago and they will know everyone of our players weaknesses.

Clean sheet at home is essential.

11.) 23 Jul 2017 21:50:09
is that your usual dogging spot ed? lol.

12.) 23 Jul 2017 22:03:11
I thought Rosenberg was the last round, but no there is another and all difficult options.

13.) 23 Jul 2017 22:22:17
Brown often drops back to cover positions across the back four either when we are forward or the opposition is stretching the play, but he is never a CB.

I'm a bit nervous about Rosenborg also especially this early in the qualifiers. I remember Brattbak haunting us a few years ago. they may not be the team they were but there won't be too much between them and the teams we could face in the next round, so if we come through this one we can be confident.

14.) 23 Jul 2017 23:10:55
There are far better teams than Rosenborg that we could play next, namely Legia Warsaw!

Along with ourselves you have Olympiakos, Copenhagen, Salzburg and Ludogorets who would be seeded in the play off round, should we all win. We need 2 of those teams to lose in order to avoid a potential tie with Legia. Salzburg most likely to lose to Rijeka.

15.) 24 Jul 2017 11:22:09
APOEL were 2-1 down and scored 3 goals in stoppage time at home to put them out. Wasn't a the walk in the park you suggest ED. I'm confident of going through but we need a good result to nothing on Weds.

{Ed007's Note - I didn't say it was a walk in the park, I said APOEL put them out and we are a far better team than APOEL.}

16.) 24 Jul 2017 15:49:05
I know brown drops back regularly when one of the cds go forward. and I know he isn't a cd but we weren't playing with 3 the other night and he dropped back whenever they pressed. on quite a few occasions in the second half I recall - more often than him thinking "ill cover that spot" more like a tactic from the outset from BR.

which shows either this is something they are working on to have brown in there in these games - or more worrying - we don't have the right person for that position so relying on brown for cover as we have cover in midfield.



16 May 2017 15:11:09
Any truth in the rumour that if Moussa goes we'll try to bring in Dani Gomez from Real Madrid?


1.) 16 May 2017 20:03:13
It was inevitable that Dembele would be sold but if it's this Summer then for me it's another slap in the face for fans. Talks of how we don't need to sell out best players clearly is a load of shite.

To sell your top striker with champs league coming up is madness when the only back up we have is griff. And any replacement coming in couldn't be trusted to slot right in to Brendan's play.

2.) 16 May 2017 23:29:02
Maybe he wants to go if he thinks it's better for him. In that case it's better for all if he does As long as we get a good deal from it. If we keep him it would not be good for anyone an unhappy player and not a good advert for us bringing in new talent if they think we will stop them from achieving their dreams.

3.) 16 May 2017 23:44:46
And in reality the team has time for the glue to set, this is only the early baby stages of this new era of what Celtic is, a powerhouse in europ I hope. If Dembele stays and wants to put Scottish football on the map again good on him, he could be as great as Larsson if he believes he can be the best.



15 Apr 2017 23:12:11
Info from a good source: a person who has worked extensively for many years with Everton in a legal capacity has told my brother in law that when Lukaku goes in the summer, Dembele is the preferred replacement IF Celtic are willing to sell.

This guy is my brother in law's cousin and lives near Birkenhead. I have been to Goodison with him and my brother in law in the past and he has a very strong relationship with all the staff there.

He is Everton to the bone. He says it all depends on whether Celtic want to sell and if Dembele wants to leave Glasgow. He is a very respectable and well connected guy. Apparently Everton have watched Dembele numerous times and he's the guy they want. HH.


1.) 16 Apr 2017 01:36:28
Bobthecat. The next family meeting will be a tad awkward if you have indeed delivered here :) . Names address and leanings. I like the slashed odds of variable sources even though i've never heard of them ๐Ÿ˜€. Better than a cabbies maw no end!
Not sure who reads this but you may have to change your name to ally cat. Nice sunshine. Like a good rumour!
. everton can gtf. my 2 pence anyway.

{Ed007's Note - Right now William Jose is the player that Everton are looking very seriously at as a striker to replace Lukaku. Dembele won't be going anywhere this summer as nobody will pay the - what is seen as unrealistic by some - price Celtic have put on him to frighten any potential suitors off. }

2.) 16 Apr 2017 02:15:03
What a name!
Im not the superstitious type.

3.) 16 Apr 2017 10:42:20
I hope you're right Ed. HH.

4.) 16 Apr 2017 19:05:08
MD is seen by all as a very good player and can only improve.

Its not news to say everton are interested, it would be news if everton aren't interested.

but until someone actually steps up with the asking price he's ours.



24 Feb 2017 15:12:09
Great to see that Griff is fit for the Hamilton game. Hopefully that means he is fit in body, mind and spirit. He is a top player when he's on tune and I think Dembele's success has taken away from that a bit. I've always liked Griff. He is a clinical finisher and hopefully he accepts that, as BR says, he had a duty to himself and the club both on and off the pitch to look after himself. HH.

Paradise in a nutshell :-) Hail Hail




21 Apr 2018 01:15:08
Just a general comment on the Sevvies .
I could never laugh at them enough.
Every time they have a hardship I laugh more and more.
They are a pretty reliable source of jokes.
They are a disgrace to the world of football.
They deserve everything they get.
They are Sevco, a new club trying to emulate the history of a previous club.
Get it right up you Sevvies, the end is nigh. HH.


1.) 21 Apr 2018 06:34:32
Sevco and their fans are like a desperate, needy ex who still pops round to visit your mother to somehow make her feel relevant to you ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚.



04 Apr 2018 21:42:08
No disrespect to Dundee, but :-) HH.


1.) 04 Apr 2018 22:14:24
Thrashed them 0-0, as the teacher always said to me. Must do better
( p. s. disrespect to Dundee, we should be beating them aw season long )

Teams know were coming down both wings with Forest and Sincy.
Hail Hail.



03 Apr 2018 15:02:22
What are your thoughts on Musonda? Any reason you know of why he isn't getting a game with us? HH.


1.) 03 Apr 2018 18:08:11
Doesnt live up to the hype?

2.) 03 Apr 2018 18:09:54
Any time he's played all be it not very often he's been really quiet so the bhoys that are in front of him are there on merit.

3.) 03 Apr 2018 18:31:44
Very many of our fans wet themselves with excitement at the prospect of us signing him on an 18 months loan deal. Those who were most excited had even seen him play .
I wouldn't be one bit surprised when all the hype has died down Mosunda could come on to play a reasonably good game for us . It could well be next season before we get the best of him . Hopefully he is working hard in training and trying his best to impress the coaches.

4.) 04 Apr 2018 00:16:46
Masonda looks like a 14 year old in a school team, he is nowhere near physical enough for our game. Not saying he has to be built like mike tyson but a strong breeze would blow him over.

5.) 04 Apr 2018 13:19:13
I reckon he is still finding his feet at our club and acclimatizing to new training, team-mates and weather lol.
He is here for a while and is up against a lot of very good quality at present and will get his chance when BR thinks he's ready.

6.) 04 Apr 2018 13:28:08
Watching him youvtealuse why he never broke through at Chelsea. He is too lightweight. He needs to increase his core strength. He is easily muscled out with fair challenges. Heโ€™s still a pup so I have hopes for him, but right now he doesnโ€™t warrant a start and thatโ€™s a worry.

{Ed007's Note - And yet he managed to play 24 games in La Liga for Real Betis. His physical appearance is nothing to do with why he wasn't given any game time at Chelsea, he had some problems staying fit and they feel he needs to mature as a person and a player and to learn when to pass the ball rather than try and do everything himself.}

7.) 04 Apr 2018 14:13:40
he's being eased in (from a coach).

Tim, oe of 2 things is happening here.
1. You mix with some very weird and bizarre people (and if you do then why waste your time? ) , or
2. You have a vivid imagination.
No offence intended but reading that email from your 'pals' makes me wonder which of these 2 options are correct. HH.
