Happy new year to everyone, friend and foe. Football and especially Celtic is very important to all of us, but please God we all stay safe and well in the next year.

I thought there was a lot of good things about today's performance, although sometimes its frustrating when they try to score the perfect goal when putting the laces through the ball is required. I enjoy watching playing from the back and keeping the ball but does anybody else agree with the pace up front we have especially Dembele, every now and then a quick long ball from defence over the last defender might reap rewards. There was times today when the space behind Motherwells defence was begging for a quick punt!

Kieran Tierney is the best thing i have seen in a while, the bhoy is outstanding.


2.) 16 Oct 2016 11:26:29
Thought we played really well. the motherwell keeper had a great game but another outstanding display from young kieran. best fullback from the great Danny mcgrain.

We are definitely playing at a higher tempo, this season than we have for a very long time . I have felt for decades if we play at a high tempo we can compete with any team . Typical of how we are playing was Dembele stretching his legs and forcing the penalty in the 87th minute .

What I also liked was that the three players brought in who haven't played consistently fitted in seamlessly and could fill in if needed.

I have to admit I have mixed feelings concerning tomorrows game. On the one hand I am as usual looking forward to going along to paradise, soaking up the atmosphere, watching the bhoys playing football as only we can, 'at times'. On the other hand I feel as if I am a bit player in the biggest Con trick ever played out in sport of any kind in my life time. I suppose my love for Celtic just outweighs my hatred for corruption and cheats. I hope I am right!

Big signings are great, I will be sitting up tomorrow hoping for something special and befitting of our great club. The question is are we a better team at the end of this window than before. I think YES.

Ed, like you I had many reservations when we signed Leigh Griffiths. Firstly I thought he was a substandard player and not good enough for us, and secondly I felt his off field conduct left much to be desired. Now I see a player who in my opinion has improved to a level worthy of a place in our team. Not the finished article but a player who has obviously worked on his game and has improved tenfold. As for his off field activities, I don't have, nor want access to his private life, but feel that he seems to have grown up and to an extent grown into the jersey he wears. His gesture today seemed genuine and I think he deserves praise and credit for understanding what it means to be a Celtic player. I was wondering, do you still have doubts or is he growing on you?

{Ed007's Note - I was thinking that to myself today, LG really has really turned his career and life around and good luck to him. I still don't think he's good enough to play as our main striker in Europe if we're playing one up front. I'm delighted that he's made me - and people a lot more knowledgeable than me - to eat our words.}


1.) 27 Aug 2016 23:23:56
Ed, from time to time in life we all prejudge others, Leigh Griffiths deserved his reputation and I hope he continues to reform. The Lord loves a repentant sinner.

{Ed007's Note - If he keeps scoring the way he has been he could be with us for years to come. I much prefer being proven wrong than proven right when it comes to not rating any Celtic player.
I don't think Forrrest has enough years left playing football, or even living, to win me over before you think I'm going soft in my old age!}


2.) 27 Aug 2016 23:31:57
Remember when Griffiths was a bench warmer and would always chat to fans and kids when warming up even though some were on the wind up. Would like to see 3-5-2 used a bit more and see if Griff and Dembele can strike up a partnership.


3.) 27 Aug 2016 23:38:37
LOL, I won't even attempt to argue with you on that one.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)


4.) 27 Aug 2016 23:50:50
Gordon was in the studio for the Happy Bear Shavers game and lineker asked him, why only 17 (is it? ) Caps.

GS said in a 2 up front attacking formation he's the man - but most of Scotlands games require someone who can play on their own upfront and hold the line etc etc etc etc as we have to play most games defensively.

I just don't think he did that effectively enough against HBS - he didn't get much support/ service tbf - but imagine the same against Barcelona and Man City.


5.) 27 Aug 2016 23:52:21
Let's be honest, he was a complete tool on and off the field a few years back and we were all well and truly justified in our reservations but he's worked incredibly hard to turn that all around and he must be commended for that. He's on his way to being a club legend if he keeps up this form. He's been down in England and had a very decent scoring record and still wasn't wanted so I could see him being here for a good few years to come.


6.) 27 Aug 2016 23:58:54
The wee man has definitely done the business on the park, and stopped the nonsense off it, credit 2 Rd as he started the process of getting lg 2 really fulfill the potential he had n 4 me started the making of it as a proper Celtic player and credit to lg 4 knuckling down n tearing it up in goals and for me he continues improving under br and I hope he can step up in Europe with a bit more experience at that level. Griff is my my wee bhoys favourite player n he loves seeing the wee man score, he was over the moon 2 day.
Hail hail.


7.) 28 Aug 2016 09:50:06
Good comment about LG staying for years to come ED. However, on past record, if he does improve as he has been then our board will sell him off. Wee mention for RD who has obviously sat down with the boy and helped him change.
BR has done well so far. Very early days but I am concerned if has some success here then he will jump ship if a big club comes knocking on the door.
Anyway, enjoying the start to the season so far. Hail Hail.


8.) 28 Aug 2016 19:05:29
Tiny Tim, I don't believe the Celtic Board will want to sell L G unless he or his agent demands a move. I don't think L G will want to move down south as he has been there and seen that southern pasture are not always green .
He makes no secret of the fact that Hibs are his team and 18 months ago a loan there was all the rage . Thank God common sense prevailed and we have our goal scoring Leigh who this season already has scored regularly in Europe .
If the chances are created L G will convert a reasonable %.

Ed, this appears to be probable, and a fair amount of money, anywhere outside the financial utopia of England. Two questions, with your knowledge and contacts, is this guy a prospect? and do you think there could be more signings with Europe next year in mind?
I ask because, if this is true, this will be the first time I can remember that we are trying to strengthen from a position of strength, unnecessarily.
This would reinforce the premise that as a club, we are now serious about competing at a higher level than previously thought acceptable.

{Ed007's Note - I'd never heard of Eboue till yesterday but when you read up on him - even without listening to the Celtic experts on him who suddenly appeared - he seems to be a highly rated prospect. Rodgers has said that any signing this window will be signed with the CL qualifiers in mind and even though it's difficult to get deals done in January I don't think Eboue will be the last arrival this month.}

No point in rushing him, the defence on Wednesday looked solid enough, GK not so much, There is one tie coming up that will define our season and beyond. We need to make sure we have our first team available, even if it means slipping behind early doors.

I have to say, I thought Boyata was outstanding today, I watched him from start to finish and I am amazed at the transformation from last season. His composure and vision were a joy to watch and although one Swallow doesn't make a Summer, Brendan may just have found a player without breaking the bank.

He may have meant, the gap is now close enough, that they can now see us using the Hubble telescope!

Ed, it is interesting that Celtic Supporters fluctuate between believing we are one of the worlds biggest clubs, to suddenly experiencing Orgasmic pleasure at the thought of 20 Million pounds being bid for one of our players.
I am a pragmatic and realistic person personally and socially. I understand the temptation to accept such a seemingly astronomical amount for any player in our league, but I would urge caution!
First of all, I do not think any club would start bidding with a Scottish club at 20 million.
Secondly, I would hope that as a club we are now at the stage, with a recognised, sought after manager, a turnover coveted by 90% of clubs in Europe and a history second to few, that we can at last dictate our terms to supposed suitors.
Thirdly. The days of supposedly big clubs from the utopia of England courting our talent for bargain basement fees should be over!
I hope The powers that be in our club have ambitions on a par with the supporters, and that the future is one of competition and not submitting.
Ed, to summarise, I hope you agree, we have to accept that there are bigger leagues and a few bigger clubs, but we can still compete, by buying wisely, building sensibly and asking clubs if their 20 million bid is in Lira!

I think Waghorn is living in big player dreamland, he is at best a mediocre player and I doubt he would be recognised by most fans, and even if he was I don't think he would merit a second glance.
