We WILL get over the line. In my humble opinion NL is not the answer and we should be looking elsewhere. I have defended PL to the hilt and said he is running this club/ business extremely well. HE AND THE BOARD NEED TO SHOW THE SAME AMBITION THAT ATTRACTED THE RAT! Thanks Neil, for getting us out of a wee hole. He will get a job, no bother. WE NEED a class coach.


1.) 22 Apr 2019 02:24:11
Agreed but who do we get? We got Rodgers because he is a Celtic fan who happened to be out of work. Who else at that level would come to the SPL?

2.) 22 Apr 2019 08:30:04
We are not out of a hole yet, we could go into our last game against Hearts only 2 point in front because the way we are playing I don't see us winning away to Aberdeen or Sevco.
Lennon will become the man known for blowing the 10 IAR.

3.) 22 Apr 2019 11:14:27
I am still very confident that It will be 8 in a row for Glasgow Celtic, unfortunately, Celtic have not scored the goals required against Livingston, and Hibs, Celtic had chances against Livi but did not take them, Against Hibs we also had chances, Some players taking shots on goal when they could pass to someone in a better goal scoring position, French Eddie, is still a inexperienced forward, but In my opinion I Would play Weah against Kilmarnock, and play Rogic in place of Ntcham, Hayes at left back instead of Izzy, and I would play Sinclair on the Left, as he always has the potential to get a goal, Hibs played well yesterday, and if Hearts had played half as good on Saturday they might have made more of a game of it, or are Hearts saving themselves for the 18th and the 25 of May when they play Celtic.

4.) 22 Apr 2019 12:07:02
Goals are needed big time I’d take in 2 forwards in summer plus we will have griff and bayo eddy all ready for next season for me I’d take hooper back on 2 year contract as he’s free in the summer and also shankland as a prospect I think the boy could step up and score barrel loads.

5.) 22 Apr 2019 13:22:51
I still can't understand why he didn't play Burk the game was calling out for a guy like that.

6.) 22 Apr 2019 13:36:14
we Have never once taken advantage over our rivals this season. It’s been nothing short of lucky at times and that’s not good enough. We don’t scored enough goals. We’ve had a terrible season considering we should be 20+ points in front of our closest rivals by this point. We’re going backwards. Don’t act like everything is in the bag because it is not. There’s no fight in that squad and that’s the issue. We’ve got too many players that don’t want to finish games off. It’s terirble to watch right now.

7.) 22 Apr 2019 15:47:07
Just look at the games since the winter break after we brought in Weah and Burke.
Before BR walked out we had played 9 games in the league and cup and scored 26.
Since Lennon came in we have played 9 games and only scored 12.
We haven't scored more than 2 goals in any game except the semi against the Sheep and have had Three 0-0 draws.
Lennon said he wouldn't change anything but that is total horse rubbish, the first thing he did was drop the boys on loan and the performances have went back to the way they were before the winter break, although until Lennon came in we had won EVERY home game.
I can't believe people are still coming out with the "in Lennon we trust" crap.

{Ed007's Note - He's changed our starting formation from 4-2-3-1 to 4-3-3 and only changed it yesterday when Rogic came on even though he could have pushed McGregor up with Brown & Ntcham playing the CDM and box-to-box roles in the 2.}

8.) 22 Apr 2019 22:12:54
Think Ntcham needs a run in the team ED we all know what he can do when he’s playing at his best. Arguably our second best midfielder. McGregor being first.

As for how we are playing I think the players need a rest. How many games have we played this season now? 60? With hardly any rotation and multiple injuries. Tough going for the lads and really need a break from it all. We better not mess this up.

{Ed007's Note - You need to remember that Ntcham - a 23-year old man - is missing Dembele 😂😂😂😂😂😂 Who's going to sign him if he's going to constantly pine for Dembele, Lyon, Man Utd?

9.) 22 Apr 2019 23:10:42
I would think one of the last players N L would have thought of giving game time to was Burke . N L was certainly not going to forget Burke missed from less than 2 yds an open goal in injury time.

10.) 23 Apr 2019 00:47:13
People legit in a panic because we drew one game? Some think losing this league is a possibility?

Come on not one can actually be serious?

11.) 23 Apr 2019 07:02:43
That is ridiculous when it comes down to it ED 😂. Tesla we drew 3 of our last 5 in the leauge and they were 0-0 draws. Should have won every single one of them.

12.) 22 Apr 2019 23:14:39
Lol Ed you crack me up! Watching Leeds balls it up again today do you think a failure to gain promotion in the playoffs will give us a window of opportunity to move for Bielsa? Or is it all just wishful thinking?

{Ed007's Note - I do think Bielsa will leave Leeds if they don't get promoted but I just don't see our board showing that level of ambition.}

13.) 23 Apr 2019 10:17:49
I’m sure Bielsa is on a crazy wage packet Aswell. Is he not on like 3-4m a year?

{Ed007's Note - There's internet talk about £8 million a season (I think the story actually started in that bastion of truth & integrity The Daily Star because he was supposedly on that at Lille, which is a totally different kettle of fish to Leeds in the Championship) but that's more likely to be closer to the total cost of his 2-year deal including bonuses etc.
More reliable reports from the press/media say that he's on a basic £2.5 million a season - £8 million a season means he's getting more than Benitez, Emery at Arsenal, Klopp at Liverpool and Rodgers at Leicester, in fact £8 million a season would make him the 3rd highest paid manager in the UK. Even Zidane wasn't earning £8 million a season during his first stint as Madrid gaffer.}

14.) 23 Apr 2019 11:41:03
Wonder if he would take a wage cut to come to us. Or is he stubborn don’t know him that well.

{Ed007's Note - Bielsa isn't really motivated by money, Ken though obviously he makes sure he's getting paid the going rate. Here's what he said when he joined Leeds:

"It has always been my ambition to work in England and I have had several opportunities to do so during my career, however I have always felt it was important to wait for the right project to come along and so when a club with Leeds United's history made me an offer, it was impossible to turn down."

Stubborn you say? Now that's a thing that is pretty important - and maybe a negative when you consider our own treatment of managers in the past - is that if he doesn't feel the club/board/president are on the same page as him he'll make it known and if things don't change he'll leave. Look at Lazio where he lasted 2 (TWO) days saying the Italians had broken promises and they were unable to recruit the players he wanted and he felt that the club weren't supportive during the transfer window. Before that he left Marseilles after clashing with the club's management/board and at Lille he was suspended after 13 games after clashing with the board again about his plans to replace their ageing players - think Chelsea when the likes of Terry and Lampard were on the decline but still held a lot power at the club.
He's a bit temperamental and eccentric but he is still one of the best coaches in the world and one of the biggest influences on the modern game. It's not going to happen but we can all dream 😞
What about Bielsa with Lennon as No.2 learning from him and getting himself ready to take over after the 10 and GoingFor55?}

15.) 23 Apr 2019 12:16:45
Sounds like a great character ED that wants to do well wherever he goes. Shame that Directors etc tend to be obsessed with money on all fronts. He seems like he understands what the fans want and that’s important at a club like ours. But you could bet lawwell would never back him!

{Ed007's Note - He doesn't seem to spend loads of money on transfers - apart from he's never been around long enough 😂😂 - he's more the type that will work to improve the players we have and tweak where it's needed with new additions. Off the top of my head he only spent about £10 million last summer at Leeds and about £7 million (+ add ons) of that was on Bamford.}

16.) 23 Apr 2019 15:15:07
I’ve watched a few games of Leeds this season Ed, they play attractive football. Just recently when I’ve seen them though he just seems to sit there when they leak goals, add to the fact he doesn’t seem to speak English may be a problem for us. Let’s be honest if ( hypothetically speaking he took over and struggled for the first few games the not speaking English language barrier would be brought straight up by a lot of fans) . It seems we are narrowing it down to moyes 😂.

{Ed007's Note - He began taking English lessons shortly before he arrived in the UK.}

17.) 23 Apr 2019 17:24:50
How much was Rodgers on when he was here, was it £45k p/ w?

18.) 23 Apr 2019 19:35:25
That would suit our system perfectly then, on that note have you ever heard of the Musafadza boy from Azerbaijan?

19.) 24 Apr 2019 09:31:52
So this Biesla guy has a great record of falling out with boards, but apart from that has he achieved much as a manager?

{Ed001's Note - built Chile into the best team in South America from a tiny group of players, very few of which were even international level. Alexis Sanchez and Arturo Vidal were potentially quite good before he worked with them and turned them into great players. He coaches players to be much better. He did win titles in Argentina and was their first ever manager to win the Olympics. The key thing is his coaching though, he is a fantastic coach, he produces fantastic football and improves average players into ones that can play at the highest level.}

20.) 24 Apr 2019 11:16:55
Sounds good,

21.) 24 Apr 2019 12:57:11
Sign him up, hope Leeds don’t make it up now 😰😂.

22.) 24 Apr 2019 17:51:28
He would fully understand the interpretation of the rules in Scotland by SFA, by referees and assistants and by the support and help of the MSSM . This and the criticism of players and manager if they happen to not win a match, by Celtic 's so called wonderful supporters . Does anyone actually think he would last until Christmas.

23.) 24 Apr 2019 23:59:40
Leeds was no where last season and up there contending for the league until the past month. Can still go up through playoffs of sneak 2nd. Just think we need to be ambitious for 10iar and not pick Lennon through sentiment. Sure Rodgers was on around £2.2m a year? With the money they picked up for him moving to Leicester surely they can cover Bielsas wages and sell him on the idea of being the first coach to win the 10.



27 Jul 2018 16:06:33
Any news on the hotel? Last I heard the board were 'Going to the market'. Would love to see this project started soon. HH!


1.) 27 Jul 2018 17:35:51
Very professional statement.

2.) 27 Jul 2018 18:13:22
Sorry wrong thread.



30 May 2018 00:38:53
I personally think if Edouard was going to be signed it would have happened by now. I also think another year's loan would be ideal for all parties.


1.) 30 May 2018 01:26:22
the window isn't officially opened yet.

2.) 30 May 2018 08:57:58
As much as I share your desperation to have this deal set stone PSG have set a date of 16th June for us to complete the deal.

3.) 30 May 2018 15:24:41
Just like all the people last summer adamant PR wasn't coming back because "we would have signed him by now".

Calm heads needed over the next wee while! Had a conversation wi a couple of zombies. (yes, quickly coming out of the woodwork) . Anyways, they asked if I thought NL was for the chop? My reply was no. However IF (and I'm not saying that I think they will) things go tits up at the crumbledome, then he hasto go. The reason I say that is. we are on 8.9 is right there. but there is no wriggle room now. Time for both the board AND the management team to step up to the plate!


1.) 16 Aug 2019 07:09:50
Who was going hysterical about Cluj being rated lower than Motherwell,?, they are also rated lower than Cork, . The champions of Roumania having a lower rating than Cork city should tell you to calm down a bit about the significance of these coefficients.

2.) 16 Aug 2019 07:25:22
No, I think it's you that needs to keep a calm head, two or three or more bad results are normal in a season, that's what made the invicibles run so extraordinary, all that's happened so far is a bad result in the champions League,

3.) 16 Aug 2019 08:52:07
Our last two visits there should be warning enough about how we need to perform, line-up and obviously defend well.
There could be additions before then to give us a lift? However;
Don't care what anyone says, the lack of Celtic support is a factor and the atmosphere did affect both sets of players in opposite ways.
Definitely not a place for nerves and inexperience and I hope the manager will put any ideas of Morgan or MJ out of his head and plays our strongest possible team in their proper positions.
Otherwise the pressure will be on him and a few others.

4.) 16 Aug 2019 10:15:31
There lies the problem Lennon sees Johnston and Morgan as part of his strongest team although I agree with you neither are ready to face an over physical sevco team in their own den way to light weight .

5.) 16 Aug 2019 10:16:23
It's irrelevant where Cluj are ranked with regards to coefficient, the point is the fact the game was not managed in a professional manner. Forget the board, forget Peter Lawwell, forget the transfer window, forget the £100 billon under the floor boards or whether Millport is higher ranked than Arran, the point is Lennon failed to properly and professionally game manage a Champions League tie.
If you can't see that's what took place on Tuesday night then you have no clue about football and should not be trying to debate the subject👍.

6.) 16 Aug 2019 10:26:48
Malky I 100% agree there.

7.) 16 Aug 2019 10:53:31
Well said malky, the blame lies fairly and squarely at the door of the gaffer. It's a shame he can't come out and admit it instead of calling it a collective failure. HH.

8.) 16 Aug 2019 11:36:01
I wish he would just come out and say he resigns how good a Friday would that be.

9.) 16 Aug 2019 11:59:35
We all know the manager was totally at fault on Tuesday and even though our attacking players nearly clawed him out of a hoe, he pulled the rug from under them with his tactical naivety and inept substitutions - giving them the initiative (I know Brown and Bain were culpable as well btw) .
He should have been straight and honest after the match and held his hands-up, but his credibility sank even further with the support and probably the players, when he shifted blame and responsibility.

10.) 16 Aug 2019 12:26:11
Spot on OAB. That is one of the things that has kept my anger stoked. Most managers would take the flak for his team even when it isn't his fault but not the bold lenny. Under the bus you go lads.

11.) 16 Aug 2019 12:52:31
I know Lennon was at fault for the selection and tactics, I said to someone before the game started, when I seen the lineup up that we were doomed, I was mearly replying to whoever it was that was going hysterical about Cluj being rated lower than Motherwell, every manager makes mistakes and I think the biggest one that is being made and was made on Tuesday, is keeping playing Scott Brown in midfield, which led to him moving McGregor to left back.



18 May 2019 03:07:16
Ed.? Craig Gordon? What has happened? Really! I thought he might have made an appearance towards the end of the season, but Summer is upon us!


{Ed007's Note - He injured his knee while doing extra training to try and get his place back so I assume it's still that that's stopping him from even making the bench.
Gordon still has a year of his current deal to run but the rumours are he will be paid that up and freed at the end of the season.}

1.) 18 May 2019 11:07:01
I heard a rumour that Gordon could end up at hearts next season.

2.) 18 May 2019 11:27:23
Would be a natural choice for him if it's there Rich. He's a fan and he's worked with leven before.

3.) 18 May 2019 12:10:08
I've been impressed with Bain so if we were to stick with him as No.1 going I to next season I'd be quite happy. At the same time he'd be a great backup if we pushed the boat out for someone else.

4.) 18 May 2019 12:14:21
It came from a hearts fan could be right.

5.) 18 May 2019 12:29:09
We are apparently looking at darlow from newcastle as his replacement.

6.) 18 May 2019 13:06:07
Why pay his deal up? Would we not be as well as keeping him as back up or better still sell him?

7.) 18 May 2019 14:09:16
Probably a bit of loyalty. Craig G.

8.) 18 May 2019 14:17:54
If we sign Darlow he'll just be back up. Poor at best.



31 Mar 2019 14:35:33
By God, be got away with one today! Jonny Hayes. omg. his corners! However thought Broony conducted himself eloquently and the bhoys up top did their job. Display overall was uninspiring. I love Lenny but hope we are casting our net wider tbh.


1.) 31 Mar 2019 15:11:26
I thought we were poor also. Thought Hayes was ok his corners were hit and miss was still suprised to see him hooked at half time unless he was injured. Don't think Lennon is the man for the job we've been poor since he came back in but have still picked up points. Sinclair and rogic were worse than 2 men down think both will leave in the summer although I would keep sinclair. Glad we won despite playing poorly again.

Thought madden was quite poor yeah he got the red card correct but should have sent off Kent he was looking straight at it. Thought he was inconsistent with his decision making. He booked Hayes for his first foul but let arfield and mccrorie off with worse.

Back to us i think we played better 11 v 11 and just stopped playing after sloth was sent off thinking the game was won. Our play was very slow and predictable and no one seemed willing to take a man on which was disappointing. Forest took his goal well but was poor today and has been for a while now.

Anyway 13 points clear so happy days enjoy your Sundays bhoys and ghirls.

2.) 31 Mar 2019 15:46:26
Madden confirmed what I have said all along and for those who think I should be grateful for him giving baw heid a red card - he had no choice after the linesman made the decision for him.
He let them away with a lot, denied a stonewall second red card and at one time we had four bookings to their two .
A proven Sevco supporter who should be nowhere near this fixture.

3.) 31 Mar 2019 16:45:41
Ok so Sinclair has scored a few goals for us, what else does he do? For me he gets in good positions out wide too often and cuts back to then hold play up. He doesn't create very many goals if any at all. Me personally I don't think he does enough and I wouldn't keep him.

4.) 31 Mar 2019 17:27:05
For 2 of the 3 seasons here he's had the most goal assists in the squad. Not bad for a player that doesn't create many goals eh.

5.) 31 Mar 2019 18:22:47
Eh no he hasn't Kev I'm afraid.

Forrest is way ahead this season with about 5 more than him.

Last season he was second with about 6

Invincible season Roberts was top of the assists.

This season he has only 2 assists, if you think that is acceptable for a winger that is fair enough, I'm just saying that I don't think that is.



26 Feb 2019 20:32:55
Ed. what a day! Do you think Rodgers would have stayed until summer if he had been allowed to? Also the way I look upon things is if Lenny guides us over the line and we maybe do the treble again, I think we might be in a Solskjaer type situation. Why do you not fancy him again?


{Ed007's Note - I don't think he would have stayed and I wouldn't have wanted him to. I always felt Neil Lennon stayed a season too long and the final season wasn't good to watch, plus I don't think you should ever go back the way it rarely ends well.
I do think that NL was by far the only possible choice to see us through to the end of the season and I'll back him to the hilt like I do with every Celtic manager but I would like to see us cast our net a bit further in the summer and get a high(ish) level of European coach/manager with some fresh ideas and some savvy in European games.}

1.) 26 Feb 2019 22:42:42
If the board really want to come out of this smelling sweet they best give serious consideration to appointing someone in Brendan's league as a coach, with that sort of reputation. Other posters are more clued in than I am about candidates--but its imperative that we send a message with the next hire. This 10 in a row thing is a serious legacy issue; they have the capital. Do the right thing. Lenny is super (and I just know I'll come round to thinking he should stay) but he's not in the same league.

2.) 26 Feb 2019 22:47:31
But if Lennon gets us the treble treble, wouldn’t the board go for the normal cheap scake option to appoint Lennon permanently on the cheap and pocket Rodgers compensation package? I wouldn’t put it past them.

3.) 27 Feb 2019 05:50:04
It wouldn't surprise me either Leeds Celt. As an interim, Lennon is fine. There probably aren't any managers who have paid as much attention to us or the domestic scene. And what we need right now is a continuity and for the manager to hit the ground running. Somebody who can get a bit fire in the bellies of the players. NL ticks those boxes. Longer term though, it's quite simply a step backwards.

4.) 27 Feb 2019 00:12:48
Bang on ed not my choice but read a piece before saying how hard it would be for an outsider to come in now if they failed and stopped the ten so I get it but surely we have to get it right in the summer. I’m at a crossroads just now wee we’re on our way to 10 playing the Celtic way. For me dodgers had finally nailed a system away in Europe he’s def the reason calmac has turned into the player he is now and others have benefited from his coaching. I grew up of stories of the Lisbon lions and winning 9 but at the same time lives through them winning 9 so 10 for me is the holy grail BUT I want to do it by being the best playing the best not just grinding out results the next appointment can’t be Lennon.

5.) 27 Feb 2019 10:58:26
Hi again ed, just wondered what you're thoughts are on jokanovic as an outsider coming in? EPL and European experience?

{Ed007's Note - That's a decent shout, Andy. His time at Fulham turned into a bit of a disaster after he got them promoted but it's a huge step-up for players from the Championship to the Pub League and they're still struggling.}



13 Aug 2018 03:18:09
Please tell me that Boyata won't run down his contract and sign a PC in Jan? I know we still have a few weeks in the transfer window, but if this guy is allowed to do that after us turning down £9m from Fulham then it just proves that manager and team/ PL / Directors are really fragmented.


1.) 13 Aug 2018 06:41:38
Agree. The Boyata saga should have been done and dusted. Offer accepted. Buy a new CB and move on. Its one mistake after another. Now down to 2 CB, s for Tuesday. We must do better as a club.

2.) 13 Aug 2018 09:48:45
I think it looks likely we will get offers, but possibly not the alleged £9m we apparently knocked back?

Thanks Ed, you put things across far better than me. I know what you are alluding to. even if we get £25m ish over 2/ 3 yrs we'll be happy. I know it doesn't have to be 'up front'. Just want us to get the going rate. Ta.

So. Arsenal reportedly struggling for cash this summer. Have already bought a boy for £23m and loaned him straight back for this coming season. Now ready to sign Pepe for £80m. PL GET THEM TOLD. WE ARE NO MUGS. £30M Cash!


{Ed007's Note - The issue with KT isn't the money being offered - and it's never going to be cash - it's the guaranteed value of the deal. Celtic will wait for their money as long as the know it's coming.}

Simply because he has obviously downed tools! He can go TOMORROW for £10m as far as I'm concerned. KT has played the game well. Listen, I don't think there is anyone on here who would begrudge a player for moving on to better things so long as they have given their all while here. KT has. ON has not. The sooner he is sold, the better!

Hi Ghuys. not posted in a while. Glad to be back on. Anyways. our wage bill is unsustainable. I do believe there's tension behind the scenes, and I do think this will be BR last season (Hope I'm wrong! ) . We NEED to move players on. I think we all recognise that. I think Ntcham might be away this time tomorrow. I for one, would take a good offer from Porto or anywhere else. Think Broony staying indicates this. HH Bhoys n Ghirls.
