Oh F**k, Brendan's off to Spartak Moscow now!

They really don't want him here do they lol.


2.) 23 Oct 2018 22:41:00
It's really just becoming white noise now, he'll be linked to every half decent team on Earth from now to 10IAR.
They'll probably have him as Stevie G's successor when the messiah gets 'resigned'.

There we go, Brendan's off to Newcastle now!

COYBIG

If BR feels like he isn't being backed at Celtic, Newcastle would be even worse. Only, they aren't even a top side in their league. Villa was more realistic and I laughed that one off. I think we'll all just have to get used to BR being linked with every single English job.


2.) 13 Oct 2018 12:51:20
Eventually he will leave and the press will celebrate that they got one right.


3.) 13 Oct 2018 13:52:43
this love affair with Steven Gerrard and Rangers that the Scottish media seem to be having will not last for long. They seem to be trying their hardest to upset the Celtic dressing room and back room at present. Its not just the constant media attention on trying to get Brendan a new job, it impacts on our ability to recruit. Who will come to work with BR and improve as a player under his guidance if they feel he will be gone 6 months after signing.

Like the rest of you, I've gone through the wide range of emotions in the last couple of days, shock, confusion, hurt, anger, pride, defiance and probably a few others I've forgotten. We're all gutted at Rogers' departure and we're venting our anger at him. If I'm honest, I'm looking for excuses to feel aggrieved but he's certainly given us some. Leaving mid season is the obvious one but I think the fact that he's consistently claimed to be a Celtic fan and that he's just like us and he's in his dream job is actually the major one. Most of us believed him and we believed that he was here for the long haul to build something really special. Publicly, we would all say that the big cup is now out of our reach but privately I know I was wondering if some day he could build a team capable of mounting a challenge for it. I think that's why I feel so let down. I've tried to see it from his point of view to understand it better but that's not easy. Is it about the money? What can he buy now that he couldn't buy when he was with us? Is it about glory? I can't see him winning anything with LC. Is it about a stepping stone to a bigger team in the pub league? Surely he could've waited and got that big move regardless? Or, for once, has Adrian Durham got it right? Is he scared that Slippy G might get the better of him. Last week, we pulled off a last gasp winner against Kilmarnock to open up an 8 point gap. He knew we were going to Tynecastle tonight to what was a very tricky fixture and if we lost it would most likely be back to 5 points. Slippy G turned him over in Dec. Was he scared it might happen again at CP? One thing's for sure, even if he genuinely believes he's like us, he's not. None of us would ever leave the club voluntarily and certainly not mid season with a job still to be done. I have to say a massive, massive thank you to Neil Lennon for stepping up to the plate. He's putting his reputation on the line for the club with a squad that aren't his who are used to playing a style of football that is alien to him. He's willing to walk into what is a really difficult situation and accept the risk of failure to help the club and the fans that he loves. That's because he is just like us. He is a real Celtic supporter. That's what makes Neil Lennon a Celtic Legend. We are all Neil Lennon. YNWA.

Good post COYBIG.
Sadly Brendan won't go down as a legend in the eyes of the supporters although we have to acknowledge the good work he done domestically and getting into the champions league twice.
According to the radio last night his salary is 20 million over 3 years and with all the money in the world, I still think he will regret what he has done over the last couple of days.
He has left us in a strong position in the league and Lenny is the man to finish the job.
We start a new chapter in our fairytale club and last night was great to see everyone pulling in the same direction.
We have moved on, so no more distasteful songs about Brendan and like a say I hope he is happy with all his money in the world.

I suppose I owe Charlie Nicolas an apology. I slaughtered him when he said BR would be gone by January but he was only a month out so I'm enough of a man to say he was right and I was wrong. Rogers duped me into thinking he was a real Celtic supporter but he's just another greedy manager. However, I also remember how disappointed I was when Lenny left and I'd like to welcome him back with open arms and I'll be delighted if he's the guy who picks up the tenth league trophy in a couple of years time.

I'd hope we would aim higher than Lennon for the 10IAR. But him doing it would get it up Sevco better than anyone else.

So we've broken the previous record for the number of consecutive wins in the SC. Another one bites the dust. Have we still got a problem with recruitment?

COYBIG

1.) 11 Feb 2019 08:58:12
Sometimes, yes.


2.) 11 Feb 2019 09:41:15
Last summer was a shocking window, but it seems a million miles away after one of the busiest January transfer periods I can remember, since these 'windows' started.
There's no doubt the additions have given us a huge boost in quality and confidence with a run of seven wins, 21 goals scored and none conceded and there's a healthy competition for places (even allowing for a horrendous string of injuries) , keeping everyone on their toes.
The goalkeeping switch to Bain has worked very well and the resurgence of Broony to top form after that period of uncertainty has been magnificent.

Loan signings are sometimes a gamble and are a temporary solution to personnel and quality deficiencies, but while we have such a huge, expensive squad eating up financial resources, it was the only sensible option at this time and so far it looks like a master-stroke, with maybe options to extend and a great way to build positive relations with other clubs for future ventures.


3.) 11 Feb 2019 18:11:16
Ok, so we’ve done a double treble which nobody has ever done before, we’re on our way to a treble treble which blows our own double treble out the water and we’ve broken the run of cup wins that was set by oldco with their overspending and EBTs you guys think you could do it better?


4.) 11 Feb 2019 20:10:47
COYBIG you're being ridiculous. You asked if there was a problem with recruitment, to which the answer was yes. Then you start accusing people of thinking they could personally do better than a treble treble? On what planet does that make sense? There are clearly problems with our recruitment at times considering we've recently signed Compper, Hendry, Gamboa, Mulumbu, de Vries, Allan.


5.) 11 Feb 2019 21:51:18
It was a rhetorical question. I didn’t expect anyone to come back and say ‘yes’. On what planet does it make sense to question the recruitment of a club who is going through one it’s most successful periods in it’s history? That wasn’t a rhetorical question but I’ll answer it for you. It makes sense in the world of some nerd who spends most of his time playing PlayStation games and thinks he knows the ins and outs of the transfer market as a result. The fact that we’ve signed Comper, Hendry, Gamboa, Mulumbu, De Vries and Allan absolutely does not ‘clearly show’ there are problems with recruitment, even if you were to include the word ‘fact’ afterwards. Most successful clubs have big squads and most of them don’t play because you can only put 11 players on the pitch at a time. That’s why the bigger or wealthier clubs loan players out which is why we’ve got Weah, Toljen, Benkovic, Burke etc. We will seek to loan a few of our players out to give them game time in the hope that they come back ready to play first team football. If you are of the opinion that we have a recruitment problem, then logically you must have an opinion on what we are doing wrong and how we should change it to improve, therefore by default, you must think you could do better.

Going to be in Leicester on Wed night. Just wondered if anyone knows a good Celtic shop to go and watch Sevco getting turned over at Kilmarnock? I notice Celtic Bars list 'The Royal Standard' as a Celtic Bar but I've lost faith in it recently with a couple of visits to pubs that were showing pub league games in preference to Celtic games. Any ideas?

COYBIG

1.) 21 Jan 2019 21:57:26
Apparently they show the games upstairs in the Standard going by the Leicester Hoops sc twitter page.


2.) 21 Jan 2019 23:36:47
Thanks Bravetart, might give it a go then. I suppose it depends on whether they show the Sevco games as well. Some Celtic pubs don’t.


3.) 22 Jan 2019 21:55:18
I don't know why any Celtic supporter would want to watch Rangers2012, surely Celtic match must be on on an illegal stream somewhere in the area.

For all those whining and moaning and suggesting they know how to negotiate better than Peter Lawell, I have a question. Do you have any experience of running an organisation with a turnover in excess of £100M? If the answer is yes, then I welcome your input. If the answer is no, I suggest you go back to your PlayStations and concentrate on something you know about.

Guess that's the whole forum ethos; everyone has an opinion which is no more or less valid than the next.


2.) 03 Jan 2019 22:34:39
Everyone is entitled to an opinion but as to their validity, that’s a different question. I think I could confidently say that not one of us on here could lace Pedro’s boots when it comes to negotiating and if anyone thought they could, I’d pay money to watch them try.

Find it hard to believe. I really thought he got what it meant to manage Celtic but clearly he doesn’t. I think he’ll regret this decision at some point but to be honest, I don’t really care. Happy with either NL or SC and one of them can take their place in Celtic history as the guy who lead us to 10 in a row.

Gerry, my response to that ridiculous post from GGGG was a touch less diplomatic but Ed has chosen not to publish it. It’s a little bit disappointing but I guess I’ll have to use a bit more tact in these situations. However, my point is that I agree with you completely and perhaps I should avoid the site when the moonhowlers are out in force.

Good shout Kwaj. As I’ve said before, we need to stop subscribing to SKY and BT as this only helps to widen the gap between us and Europe’s elite.

I saw George Connolly come out the tunnel at Rugby Park at half time playing keepie uppy and went round the track at the side of the pitch keeping the ball in the air till he got back round and disappeared up the tunnel. It was a testimonial game for Frank Beattie which Celtic won 7-2. I think it was also Dalglish’s debut. He scored 6 that night I think. I wonder if any fellow tims can confirm that or perhaps tell me I dreamt it?

I get it completely bigp. I went through marriage break up 4 years ago and I lost a ton of weight in the space of a few months through stress. What is most frustrating for most people in desperate situations like this is that no matter how hard they try to make things better, they’re continually facing ridiculous hurdles that, in a fair world, just shouldn’t be there. I hope you get things sorted out with your daughter because that must be really hard to deal with. Don’t give up cos you will sort it out in the end. I hope the courts give the guy a bit of leaway as well cos it sounds like he needs it.

Completely agree with both of you and it doesn’t just go for players. It goes for managers as well. If you thing a middle of the table English team is a step up from Celtic, you’re not Celtic class.

I can’t believe anyone would be ‘gutted’ at Neil Lennon getting the job. I was gutted when he left and I was delighted to hear he was coming back in when Rogers left. As United Ireland points out, Lenny is a true Celtic man and I believe he returns a better manager than he was last time round. I’ll be gutted if he doesn’t get it.
