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 😀. 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.

The following is an exact copy of what appears on the website of a certain paper in Scotland. It is permanently at the top of the Celtic page. Here it is:

"FOUNDED in 1888 as a charitable venture in the East End of Glasgow, Celtic have grown to become one of the biggest clubs in Scotland"

The bit I don't understand is the 'one of' part of the comment as this would suggest there is more than one big club in Scotland and there is at least one bigger than Celtic which everyone knows is not true. To help point out why the above statement is incorrectly written here's one I just made up but is along a similar line:

"FOUNDED in 2012 as a comedy venture in the West End of Glasgow, The Rangers Sevco Scumbags have grown to become the biggest laughing stock in Scotland"

See what I mean? There's no confusion about any of it. It's clear, it's true and everyone knows exactly who it refers to. I think perhaps I should have a word with the above-mentioned paper and ask them to get their facts straight! lol HH.




17 Dec 2017 19:48:33
Thank goodness the monkey is now off our back. 69 domestic games undefeated is very impressive, I feel a weird sense of relief that we have been beaten today. HH.


1.) 17 Dec 2017 20:10:13
Bhoys we were awful from start to finish. Lustig was terrible school boy stuff sticking his hand up and not playing to whistle Gordon a complete liability kicking hopeless and responsible for the oppositions attacks and jozo least said I've been saying for a few weeks he needs a spell on the sides with young ajer getting the nod mousse garbage again . postives Forrest best player again and Armstrong did ok. rught am away for a lie doon.

Derek McInnes is that girl you liked at school. "Would you go out with him if he asked you? " "He hasn't asked me. " "But would you? " "He'd have to ask me. " "But would you? " "Tell him to ask me. " "Will you go out with me? " "Naw. "

BobTheCat has this morning ruled himself out of the laughing stock charade to become the next manager of The Rangers Sevco-Newco International 2012 Football Club.
Speaking from his kitchen table at 8am whilst trying to eat some porridge TheCat stated, "I want to make it quite clear to all media outlets that I am not, and never have beeen, interested in this vacancy. Making a career move is normally decided when you think that the move will enhance your reputation down the pub on a Saturday night and I feel strongly that if I took this path then not only would it destroy my reputation in the pub it would also mean that I wasn't even allowed into the pub again. Anyone who knows me knows that I can't live without the pub so it's a no-brainer for me. I'm sorely tempted to take up the offer of managing our pub team's side though, they're a right bunch of lads and when they get humped by 4 or 5 they usually don't mind too much. Whoever decided to take the poisoned chalice of Sevco-Newco can do so with my best wishes because by feck they're going to need someone to wish them well. "

I am 100% behind BR. He has a deep rooted passion for the club that most fans will understand. Griff, on the other hand, he's a super talented lad who has to accept what the boss says. If he has an issue with that then BR has to make a decision about what is in the best interests of the club and I think we can all agree that he should have the final call.

If an individual is upsetting the dynamics of the squad (and I'm not saying Griff is because I don't know) then that individual has to go. If that is the case then it's a very disappointing situation. BR has the ability to make Griff a better player than he already is but he has to listen and take on board what he is being told.

With BR I don't think it's an ego, it's more a genuine confidence in his own ability and he expects others to tow the line. I do think he's a modern version of Ferguson/ Stein/ Paisley etc. Their methods wouldn't work today if they were new to the game because players nowadays hold so much of the power about who they play for but BR is clearly trying to take all of the facts into consideration and we need to back him. HH.

Guys, we all talk about how BR has changed the team since he came in but one of his greatest successes is definitely James Forrest. The lad has been excellent and is now developing into the talent he was described as when he first broke into the first team. lol HH.
