Ed Is it true that Griffiths can't play on Sunday because he wasn't registered or signed in time for a 5 pm deadline? DH


{Ed007's Note - I haven't heard that buddy.}

1.) Yes that is true not reg in time

2.) Wot do u mean not registered in time surely the spfl wouldn't stop a new celtic signing playing

3.) Cha67. surely not again, good job the bunnet isn't here. lol

4.) Griffiths, will get 40/50 goals with celtic he has got it and Lennon will make him better for celtic and scotland, I look forward to this wizard.

5.) I know peeps make stuff up on here some times but 40/50 goals . hope your talking the length of his contract which if u are is a pathetic return and we'll get rid to Aberdeen or some other club which is his level

6.) 40/50 goals from this wizard! . We've signed Leigh Griffiths not fkn Harry Potter . Comedy Gold . DH

7.) Griffiths will get plenty of goals for Celtic am really looking forward to seeing him in a jersey! A think he is a steal!

Tipped this move to everyone on here on the 15th!

8.) 40 to 50 goals aye dream on, no better than stokes or riordan another cheap option, then the usual we tried to sign blah blah 3 million blah blah

9.) 01 Feb 2014 22:23:06
Your so wrong paddybhoy this boy has more passion and drive than stokes and pukki put together mark ma words this bhoy will do well in the hoops. And call me auld fashioned but am even prouder he's a young scottish talent IMO we can improve.

10.) Time will tell stewboy but can't argue the fact that once again we have been sold well and truly short, all the excuses about deals falling through are wearing thin.

Evening Ed I've heard a rumour that SLY want to show our cup tie with Morton and it will be played on a Monday night . Have you any gen on it or is it as I say just a rumour.


{Ed007's Note - I've not heard anything mate but the hold up in announcing when the games will be played is obviously until TV decides what games they want and when so I wouldn't be surprised.}

1.) 21 Feb 2016 22:03:50
Seemingly Tom Boyd mentioned it on his commentary for Celtic TV on Saturday . It would be hard enough trying to attract a crowd for a Saturday game so a Monday night could be a disaster hence Celtic being happy to take the TV money and to hell with the fans as per usual.

{Ed007's Note - No surprise there is there?}

2.) 21 Feb 2016 23:40:17
If this game is on a Monday and on tv then Celtic have to sort the ticket prices. And I don't mean put the game on the season book because that won't entice any more to turn up than is currently turning up on a sat. I think they should have it at £5 for adults and £2 for kids. Get people in who can't normally afford it. i think it would be nice if the club done something like that but I won't hold my breath.

Why is Ryan Christie destroying Aberdeen in an ICT strip instead of destroying them in a Celtic strip


1.) 28 Sep 2015 04:51:04
Because he's good. Obviously ICT wanted more than £500.000 for him, but a loanback, I think, suited both parties. I'm also sure that PL will have insurance written into the contract in case the bhoy gets injured (Hoe not) SIMPLES :)

2.) 28 Sep 2015 07:16:47
I know what you're saying but if he had of joined properly I doubt he would have been getting the chances in our team.

3.) 28 Sep 2015 10:59:38
Give yourself peace mate, we've got a HUGE squad and this is the first time anyone has mentioned Christie being brought back to Celtic asap after one very good performance. He looks a decent prospect but I personally would rather see him stay the full season at Inverness getting as many games as possible and then be ready to come into the side next season. With the amount of rotation we have in the three behind the striker week to week his game time would be limited here this season.

4.) 28 Sep 2015 13:36:09
Great shout celticforever, totally agree.

5.) 28 Sep 2015 14:03:55
I don't like the idea of lending out players as I would like to think Celtic have better quality coaches and facilities than other clubs . However we have too big a squad as it is with too many not good enough and so won't play again for us , so we probably better loaning him back to Caley as they are likely to use him well and bring him on

6.) 29 Sep 2015 12:40:35
I read somewhere he's scored or assisted in all but one of ICT's goals this season that's not a bad run although that will change now he will be suspended. Roll on Jan!



09 Aug 2015 10:35:06
If reports are true regarding John Collins statements at press conference anything less than the treble will be a disastrous season


1.) 09 Aug 2015 11:28:19
Agreed. Hoping it has been taken out of context or misreported. Although on paper we are better than every other team in Scotland it is not as if we are taking 5 or 6 off each of them every game and sounded very disrespectful.



30 Jul 2015 07:14:42
Honestly what is the point of James Forest?


{Ed001's Note - it is to give people something to moan about when you are winning and to give those sat in row z a feeling of involvement in the game when they have to dodge his crosses.}

1.) 30 Jul 2015 07:35:57
That's Scott Brown's passing that gives fans in row Z a feeling of involvement

2.) 30 Jul 2015 08:10:52
Was that you sitting in front of me last night who actually booed forrest when he came on? He wasn't great last night but who was? We were needing another wide player on the pitch. Give me strength!

3.) 30 Jul 2015 08:27:57
For all the drama and arguments that went on last year when LW beat us, and all the promises of great things to come, a year down the line and I am still waiting to see us "dominate in Europe". The squad is slightly better than this time last year. The squad are probably fitter. Irn Bru is off the menu, unfortunately the players required to succeed at CL level are not at Celtic Park. Quarabag are about the same level as Celtic. This is only the 3rd qualifying round. Tougher opponents await. I don't know how RD planned to dominate teams with the players at his disposal? Last night we yet again show nothing in the final third of the pitch. The ball does not come into the box quick enough or often enough. I just don't like how we set the team out. Glad to get the win but overall a disappointing evening.

4.) 30 Jul 2015 08:36:22
Johnny if you think it only takes a year to turn a team into s dominating European team you're delusional. This isn't football manager or FIFA. This is real life and it takes time and may even take a few years before we see progress in Europe.

5.) 30 Jul 2015 08:47:07
I'm not a fan of Forrest, but last night he came on and was direct and gave us something different from Armstrong who I thought had a poor game. Give him a break, always someone having a go.

I haven't seen a post saying well done to the wee man for 3 important tackles after tracking his man 70 yards and helping out lustig. Does all that not matter though after he had one bad cross (which came after having to control the ball on his head and keep in after a shocking pass!)

6.) 30 Jul 2015 10:54:29
@ed001 The actual purpose of playing James Florist is to create a handicap and give opposition a chance lol

{Ed001's Note - sounds fair to me, though maybe a one goal start for the SPFL opposition as well would even it up a bit more?}

7.) 30 Jul 2015 11:29:37
Not biggest forrest fan but give him his due he was willing to run at the left back and try and create something where's gms only ran at him when forrest was stripped and standing waiting to come on. Then once seen it was Armstrong that went off and moved over never tried to run at the other full back

8.) 30 Jul 2015 13:43:42
Being willing to run is not enough. His final baw, his decision making are utter pish. His shooting us a joke. He will beat the player then put in a pish baw 80% of the time. In fact more than that.

We haven't had one bid for him. Not one. Says it all. Needs hunted.

{Ed007's Note - You're being far too kind, he's not as good as that. I've said it for the past four years that Forrest is one of THE worst players I've ever seen in a CFC top - and that includes trialists, guest players in charity matches and players who've swapped jerseys with our players after matches.}

9.) 30 Jul 2015 14:57:14
@henriks tongue . If your referring to me I've never booed aCeltic player in my puff but doesn't stop me having a view on players . The trouble with Forest is that being a first team squad player he actually thinks he's better than he actually is . Maybe Deila sees him as an attacking midfielder but to me he's a winger and always will be albeit not a very good one who has never progressed since he first came into team

10.) 30 Jul 2015 15:00:51
Can someone tell me a player whose final ball was good last night? Other than commons corner? Again like I say Forrest is frustrating, but nobody in that team is perfect?

11.) 30 Jul 2015 16:07:05
Brian McLaughlin back in early 90s was La Liga class wing wizard compared to James Forrest and that is saying something cause I thought he was one of the $hittest players not only to wear the hoops, but football in general I have ever seen untill up steps Forrest.

Hope to god someone comes in for Forrest and gets him to f*ck out of our lives once and for all. i'm giving Deila the benefit of the doubt and suggesting Forrest is only getting a game to put him in the shop window so to speak

12.) 30 Jul 2015 16:10:01
One of the worst players ed? Come on.
I'm not his biggest fan but it seems that the fans need a player to have a go at and now it's forrest. A few guys around me last night could only see the mistakes he was making. Armstrong, brown, johansen all had a bad game. Let's hope he can keep fit and you never know, he might surprise us.

{Ed007's Note - Now it's Forrest? I've been saying it for four years mate. Yeah Brown and Johansen had a bad game but that's uncommon whereas Forrest's poor performance are dire whenever we're unlucky enough that he's fit to play.
Name me one player who's spent so long at CFC and being as useless and pointless as Forrest, remembering this is his seventh season now - the same amount of seasons Larsson played for us - has he progressed any in those 7 seasons or is he still the same injury prone inconsistent player he was 6 years ago? Some of our worst players weren't given 7 seasons to try and turn it round so why should Forrest?
It's like listening to Liverpool supporters about how it's always going to be next season when they win the league.
I wonder if Spurs are still interested in giving us £9 million for him? (rofl)

13.) 30 Jul 2015 16:57:36
Yeah now it's forrest. It was Ambrose and Sammy before him. He's been injured a lot, granted. But when fit he is a threat going forward. To say he's one of the worst players we've ever had is a ridiculous statement. Do you remember the 90s?

{Ed007's Note - 4 years of saying something doesn't mean it's a new thing. Who are you comparing him to in the 90's and did any of them get 7 seasons?
To say Forrest is a threat going forward is a ridiculous statement with about 22 assists in 7 seasons the only threat he is is to his health, you might think different but the stats tell a very different story, the stats and anyone that's unlucky enough to have seen him playing.
I have never heard anyone outside the CFC support say that they think Forrest is a good player in recent years but to some it's it's the same old story that you're not allowed to say a CFC player's garbage. I'd also question his bottle and guts as much as his ability, he doesn't have the self confidence to play for a big club, the slightest knock or niggle and he's on the treatment table.
Give me a straight yes or no, would you be disappointed or unhappy if Forrest left?}

14.) 30 Jul 2015 17:49:02
I didn't say you specifically, I said the supporters always need a player who can do no right.
Let's not forget he's still only 24. Larsson was 26 when he signed for us so you're comparing apples and oranges.
Here is a list of players who were worse: Biggins, Mo Kamara, Henri Camara, Paul Byrne, Raphael Schiedt, Mark McNally, Regi Blinker, Cilian Sheridan, Chris Killen, David Hannah, Adam Virgo, Du Wei, Dion Dublin, Ian Wright, Barry Smith. to name a few.
No I wouldn't be unhappy OR disappointed if Forrest left but I cannot stand supporters booing any Celtic player.

{Ed007's Note - I'm totally against booing your own players, if they're out on the park they deserve your support but that doesn't stop you thinking they're not good enough. I wouldn't say Forrest is any better or any worse than those you've listed, none of them were given 7 seasons to prove themselves at CFC and most of them had a better career than Forrest has had, I'm sure Ian Wright wishes he could have played like James Forrest.
If you yourself wouldn't miss him then how can you argue that he's a good player, don't you want us to keep our good players? When everyone was on Scott Brown's back and I was fighting his corner on here I'd have been gutted to see him leave whereas other would have happily drove him to any other team.

15.) 30 Jul 2015 18:18:41
I'm not saying Ian Wright didn't have a fantastic career. I was stating he was awful for us. Maybe you missed my point, I couldn't care less what kind of careers these guys had pre/post Celtic. You don't think Forrest has been better than David Hannah or Rafael Scheidt?
I already said i'm not his biggest fan, i'm really not. My point was he's still only 24 and when the fans get on his back after one misplaced pass or whatever it really annoys me. He did a good job tracking back last night which was missed by the anti Forrest brigade.
Last night we were needing a winger on and he came on and did ok. But if you didn't see the game and read some of the posts on here you'd think he was the worst player on the park.

{Ed007's Note - Well it depends what you count as a good career. If you think sitting injured and sponging a wage you haven't earned for seven seasons a success that's your prerogative, I've got different ideas. I don't think Forrest is a better calibre of player than David Hannah or big Scheidt, did you back them and want them given more time, why's Forrest any different?
It was great to see him tracking back last night, it only took him 7 seasons to learn that, by the time he's 30 he might have learnt to cross a ball - I can't wait.
The fact that there is even an anti-Forrest brigade speaks for itself, a NATO standard brigade consists of approximately 3,200 to 5,500 soldiers, that's about 10% of our stadium support.
Thankfully I'm in the pro-Celtic movement and want what's best for the club, team and the supporters, because people have an opinion different to yours doesn't mean them anti anything, that's just you using a negative term to try and score a cheap point as though people can't think for themselves
Were you part of all the anti- Biggins, Mo Kamara, Henri Camara, Paul Byrne, Raphael Schiedt, Mark McNally, Regi Blinker, Cilian Sheridan, Chris Killen, David Hannah, Adam Virgo, Du Wei, Dion Dublin, Ian Wright and Barry Smith brigades or was it one big group all lumped in together?
And without being pedantic, some of those players you've listed didn't play for us in the 90s.}

16.) 30 Jul 2015 19:51:54
I'm aware of that, but I never said they all played in the 90s. They were just examples of bad players for Celtic. Haha so Forrest does a good thing by tracking back and still gets stick for it. Instead of criticising Forrest for taking a wage for the past 7 years why don't you criticise the people who paid him it. Would you turn it down? But like I said, I'm not his biggest fan. Was just trying to put my point across in a less condescending way than you. Doesn't make either of us right.

{Ed007's Note - You didn't put any point across, all you've that YOU want CFC fans not to say Forrest is horse$hit for the sole reason that it upsets you and he tracked back last night, you even agree that he's not a good player, so what exactly was your point?}

17.) 30 Jul 2015 20:58:23
Lol ok mate. My point was James Forrest was far from our worst player last night but you wouldn't think that from reading this thread. Also I heard some fans booing him when he came on last night which annoyed me. That ok?

{Ed007's Note - Booing player's is out of order in my opinion and I hate seeing that myself but just because the team as a whole had an off night doesn't change the fact that Forrest is a player who has been consistently diabolical over a number of seasons.}

18.) 30 Jul 2015 23:00:35
forrest hasn't improved at all since his first year. that may be down to our coaching as much as his ability but I think he would benefit by going elsewhere

{Ed007's Note - Of course our coaching has to take some of the responsibility, just as it is responsible for not producing enough players at a level to make our first team squad. The frightening thing is that we don't have a player at 18/19 who could be a more productive addition - and cost less in wages - than James Forrest.}

19.) 30 Jul 2015 23:53:11
Lots of heartfelt comments ,but where is the critiscim of RD

{Ed007's Note - Some of RD's decisions are a bit strange but I don't think you can blame him for James Forrest being an awful footballer. Picking Forrest is by far one of his most questionable decisions but as the old saying goes, sometimes you can only pi$$ with the c*ck you've got.}

20.) 31 Jul 2015 00:21:39
You can't blame RD for any footballers ability ,but you can blame him for playing players out of position,for leaving players out who have been playing well,for including players who haven't been playig well,for ignoring younger players even though he's meant to be good at introducing younger players,for sticking to a system that's not working,where is his critisicsm,all the flak is aimed at Lawwell and Park,I think it is misplaced.

{Ed007's Note - But the thread was about James Forrest.}

21.) 31 Jul 2015 00:33:39
But RD picks James Forrest

{Ed007's Note - So is he playing Forrest out of position, leaving out a RW that's been playing better than him or ignoring a young player for him? What young player would you play on the RW instead of Forrest, who's he keeping out the team? Nothing you've said has any relevance to James Forrest..}

22.) 31 Jul 2015 00:54:19
RD picks James Forrest,thats the relevance,sorry can't remember if you are pro Forrest or anti .,do you agree Forrest should be in the team or not?I was out of the country yesterday and didn't see the game,but why is everyone slagging Forrest,he is not the best ,he is not the worst,we know what he is capable of,but RD picks the teamm,sets the system,where are his critics?

{Ed007's Note - We seen the game, that's why everyone's having a pop at Forrest, you're having a pop at the manager for a 1-0 win in a CL qualifier you didn't even see - thank God we didn't get beat!}

23.) 31 Jul 2015 08:19:40
We put in a poor 'team' performance and there's a meltdown about a player who was on the park for half an hour lolz

24.) 31 Jul 2015 13:47:39
Living in england the only people I know who think forrest has any talent are people who refuse to watch the spfl and only play fifa



24 Dec 2014 23:53:43
To all the Bhoys and Ghirls and to yourself Ed 007 have a great time and onwards to greater times in 20015 . Not been on for a wee while but still follow the best Tic website going . Merry Xmas .


{Ed007's Note - Thanks mate, merry Christmas to you too.}
