A lot of good noise about the Plasvic boy, anyone have anything more concrete than that?


1.) 23 Jun 2017 19:13:13
On the bench tonight.

Not putting the boy plavsic down and I know I've went on about this before . but if we don't give our own boys a shot them what's the point of the acadamy/ youth set up . why pay train and develop them for 6-7 years and then not see if they can do a job . with our current squad we must be more than capable of giving 2 or 3 a start at home games against the majority of our opposition . some will flourish others will be shown to fall short of what's required
But until given that chance they're just being trained for other teams to pick up on the cheap. hopefully the unbeaten run held Brendan back from introducing more last term.

If he can't get a start for the U21's, especially when they're chasing the game, then that's a bit of a worry.



19 Apr 2017 23:30:34
Celtic haven't beaten Rangers in a Scottish Cup semi since 1925? Good job we're not playing them then! There can be no hoodoo beyond the memory of last year and imo, the team that played RIFC last year no longer exists either. Our team this year needs to play out their socks and put the match to bed before any honest mistakes can have any bearing on the matter.

We are preparing for CL qualification and if we can't beat this bunch of mugs then we're in trouble. Need to make it the game of the season, really hoping we hit them a dillion. Full gutty!


1.) 20 Apr 2017 14:09:29
As long as we start Boyata, Roberts and Rogic we will be good, need to go back to the 4-2-3-1 formation.

{Ed007's Note - We played our best football when we played 4-2-3-1 earlier in the season and with Rogic back I don't see any reason why Rodgers won't revert to that so fingers crossed but I think you'll be disappointed come Sunday when Forrest will more than likely start.
Hopefully the players are fired up for this, if we turn up and play the way we know we can we will destroy them.
My team for Sunday would be:


But I think Rodgers will go with Forrest starting on the right and I don't even want to consider that he'll go with a 4-3-3.}

2.) 20 Apr 2017 17:19:52
Ed was lustig not injured or was he just rested.

{Ed007's Note - He missed training on Friday and as far as I know it was just a precaution that he didn't play at the weekend so I'm hoping he's fit for Sunday, Steph.}

3.) 20 Apr 2017 17:47:50
Yeah Ed that's the team I thought would start I was just hoping Roberts would get a start although it will be good to have him come on fresh for the last 30 minutes.

{Ed007's Note - If we can settle down and get our passing game flowing we'll have the chasing shadows tiring themselves out as the game goes on - that's the time to unleash Paddy and Griffiths.}

4.) 20 Apr 2017 19:21:55
ed i like that team. was a big boyata critic but erik doesn't fill nme with confidence these days whereas boyata seems to have come on toa game. tho id happily play the developments squad let's get real bhoys this is the worst hun team in my lietime (40 now : ( ) as the song gows . get intae them.

{Ed007's Note - Sviatchenko has lost his good form, over the last couple months he's looked nervous and slow to react at times. It's as if he's carrying a knock but I've not heard or seen anything about that and there's no reason to play him if he is with the squad we have.}

5.) 20 Apr 2017 19:50:55
Ed I'm with u on that lineup, but like u have a feeling Forrest will start.
Would prefer Roberts starting n i would rather get a great 60 minutes out of him at least than only 20 odd minutes to 30 at the end.
Players like him rogic n Sinclair always have that final ball, that beating of a man n goals in them and again for me wee james just isn't on a par with any of them.
Yes he has had a better season but too inconsistent n doesn't score n create enough regularly n how many games does he win us, Sinclair, dembele, rogic n Roberts all have that in their locker to turn a game or win us game n if Roberts doesn't sign permanently it's a position, along with goalkeeper that must be addressed.
Bring on the sevco anyway, always good to put the new club in their place.
Here we go 10 n a row.

{Ed007's Note - When people say Forrest has improved I just don't see it as he's still the same inconsistent player who struggles with his decision making. The only thing that's really improved is his his injury record and that will probably be down to him actually doing what the Club tell him for a change. He's a good SPFL player but beyond that he's nowhere near good enough.}

6.) 21 Apr 2017 07:36:21
Like that team ed but he'll prob go with forrest he maybe tracks back a bit better than paddy but paddy coming on for 30 mins is the ladt thkng sevco want to see.

7.) 21 Apr 2017 13:18:35
I think BR sees roberts as a impact sub tbh, so can see forrest starting, but like fellow posters would prefer to see roberts in from the start, if rogic is fit its got to be 4231.

8.) 21 Apr 2017 13:28:31
My only issue with your team Ed is that Lustig struggled with McKay's pace at Ibrox and ended up getting booked quite early and with Roberts not the most willing to track back, it could pose a problem when they attack.

{Ed007's Note - Lustig wasn't booked until the 65th minute but hopefully on Sunday Forrest will do his job and track back to help his fullback for a change.}

9.) 21 Apr 2017 15:24:03
Sorry Ed, maybe not that early but I can remember them taking heart from it and him struggling as he couldn't put the foot in after that. Forrest offers very little defensively but it's still probably more than Roberts. Attacking there's only one winner. Regardless we should have enough to do a job on them. Moussa needs a performance.

{Ed007's Note - The whole team owes us a performance after some of the recent lacklustre showings. I'm hoping Rogic coming back will give us a huge boost in the final third and with Sinclair consistently performing well even though he looks a bit jaded at times there should be plenty of chances for Dembele to put them to the sword.}

10.) 21 Apr 2017 21:55:59
Time for return to form, Roberts and Moose starting is a must but we'll see. One thing for sure, don't want Bitton anywhere near the pitch.

11.) 22 Apr 2017 01:20:47
I'll second that davie. With rogic and dembele fit a bit further up to hold the ball it let's Armstrong and brown do a bit more defensive work if needed. The back four that starts I want to see finish the game.

12.) 21 Apr 2017 23:28:19
I agree ed regards lustig and i don't get where Forrest is better at tracking back then Roberts, i think its the other way round n in going forward lustig n Roberts work better together for me anyway.
It's the 1 thing that puzzles me with Brendan in picking Forrest over Roberts, i just don't get it and most folk u speak to me would pick Roberts every time.
I back every player in a Celtic jersey but if we are to progress in Europe as well as dominate domestically we need to be strong in all positions, and Gordon n Forrest r the 2 i feel we need better quality. Roberts or a. n. other in a top keeper who actually instills confidence n pulls off the big saves at that higher level.
3 1 Celtic i reckon on Sunday, sevco goal no doubt an obligatory penalty by whichever mason is taking charge of his favourite new teams game.
Here we go 10 in a row.

13.) 22 Apr 2017 14:19:15
Roberts everyday for me, I do think there has been an improvement with JF but PR is streets ahead of him. Brown and Armstrong sitting deep MF tomorrow could end up running the show. Hoping for a great improvement on last few games.



01 Apr 2017 20:58:02
Any truth in MD and LG both being out of tommorow's game?




19 Mar 2017 19:34:17
Been reading a fair bit of stick for Kouassi, bit unfair imo. Lers judge him after he's had a bit of a run. Starting a game or even a few might be a fairer test for him than a couple of sub appearances. Will admit he looked shaky today though.


1.) 19 Mar 2017 19:54:20
I know what you're saying Davie but the thing that worried me was his body language and lack of intensity rather than his poor passing etc. He's has plenty of time to get up to the intensity and fitness levels but didn't look like he was caring. Plenty of time on his side though to be fair.



21 Feb 2017 18:28:52
Proposed plans for Parkhead look pretty impressive would imagine that it would take a pretty hefty outlay but would also be likely to be a ridiculous earner too. Will be very interested to see how this pans out.


1.) 22 Feb 2017 22:06:54
The Hotel will priced out to some big hotel chain it's far to big an opportunity for the coperate hotels to miss and Celtic get the hotel built for next to nothing they will still invest millions into the whole package and it's a no brainier for the hotel chains
Great times ahead and not some Murray pie in the sky 🇮🇪🍀🇮🇪🍀🇮🇪🍀.

Heard a good few grumbles about last night and tbh, I don't think we really started playing before Rogic came on. That said, we could have very easily went in at least 4 down at half time (first goal offside coulda been given and lustig coulda walked for the pen claim in first few minutes) an under strength team going away to Munich and shipping 3 goals, Arsenal have a far stronger squad than us and shipped 5 both home and away. Not a nice score line but could have been worse. We have one foot in Europa league already and will hopefully be closer to full strength before the group ends. Things could be a lot worse.




02 Oct 2017 12:31:48
Looks like missus picked the wrong weekend for surprise trip to Nou Camp, got to admit, fans were really good natured about game getting called off. Very well received in my Celtic top too, good laugh even though we didn't get to see any football.


1.) 02 Oct 2017 13:35:25
@Daviebhoy spare a thought for the Sevconian fans they NEVER get to see any football lol.

2.) 02 Oct 2017 14:53:20
Davie was it not mental over there.

3.) 02 Oct 2017 21:34:01
Davie- sorry you missed the Nou Camp. I think any Celtic fan would be amazed to see it. You have a very considerate wife: mabruk!

Maybe this was really the perfect time to visit tho! To be part of this moment in catalonya. What despicable behaviour from the cops tho; I hope we'll respond to this. Or rather, I hope and trust the green will respond to this.

4.) 03 Oct 2017 06:27:42
Cops were only thug element in town, honestly saw no aggressive behaviour from any citizens. Whole thing has become a hilarious calamity though. Flight yesterday cancelled (well airline liquidated) and now a general strike today. Memorable weekend, straight into work today from half 7 flight-ooft!

{Ed001's Note - the Guardia Civil are vile mate. Local cops are lovely in Spain, really nice and helpful, but Guardia Civil are animals. They still think they are working for Franco.}

5.) 03 Oct 2017 18:28:12
Totally agree Ed, it was the Guardia Civil who were particularly nasty but local coppers were ending in a fair bit too. Was mental but memorable, will def be back to Nou Camp for a game. Tour was brilliant too, have always been very proud of Celtic Park but that place was another level.

6.) 03 Oct 2017 23:00:54
Davie were the local cops not defending the catalans fae the Spanish polis? A definitely seen one clip where the catalonian polis were standing in front of a group of locals guarding them and a few of them were in tears.

7.) 04 Oct 2017 21:15:51
I think that was the firemen man. I have heard a few friends in Barcelona taking defence of local coppers but I didn't see any of that. Mostly was Guardia Civil but saw some locals also involved.



23 Sep 2017 11:30:17
Will be interesting to see how TRIFC fare gainer is today in terms of whether there is an actual improvement. Reckon with Anderlecht on the horizon a few players My have that on their mind in terms of avoiding injury-it is after all a more important game in the grand scheme of of our season. Head says 1 each or 2 one us but my heart went into William Hill and out a cheeky wee 5er on us doing 5 1 . Intae them, happy hunskelping day 😊.




03 Sep 2017 16:23:04
Reading through, it's plain to see that the Parks article has been similarly viewed by us but I really wonder what genuine neutrals or even people from outside Scotland think? It's a really whacky brand of journalism, the hurt is tangible in every article.


1.) 03 Sep 2017 16:54:23
Davie it is people like this clown that help spread the view that our league is a joke and not worth putting money into.
I watched some of the EPL games this season and they have been chronic but it's marketed right and their press buys into that.
Our just helps keep it down.

2.) 03 Sep 2017 17:27:03
You're probably right Kev, I just read stuff like that though and it leaves me thinking, who can actually defend this at all?

3.) 03 Sep 2017 17:51:38
Said similar myself Kev. Nobody is pulling the wool over their own eyes about the Scottish game but it must be so hard to drum up interest when it gets such a bad press even from Scottish 'journalists'. Patrick Roberts is probably the most exciting signing scottish football has seen this summer yet that's the signing this Parks chap picks to target. Strange stuff. I wonder what he has to say about other clubs signings.

4.) 03 Sep 2017 18:28:03
It's the same as the attitude to the safe standing where they tried to drum up opposition from Hillsborough victims.

5.) 04 Sep 2017 09:56:12
Its interesting that this new club supporter and his fellow hacks have been lauding the new Ibrox Galacticos but cannot find one of them lacking ambition!

6.) 04 Sep 2017 12:06:04
Parks is a hurting Hun. Simple as that. Let him produce one article he wrote when his beloved Gers were top dogs with all the queen's cash, saying it was bad for scottish football.

If any Celtic fan buys either that rag or the Record, have a feckin word with yourself,

{Ed007's Note - The Gordon Parks I've known for nearly 30 years was - and probably still claims to be - a Celtic supporter. He's just another in the long line of soup-takers, some of whom we've even got on CelticTV now!}

7.) 04 Sep 2017 12:27:39
I would be amazed if that was true.

{Ed007's Note - Anybody that knows him will tell you the same.}



01 Sep 2017 07:05:58
Lot of good business done (Ntcham, Roberts, Eduardo, will leave it at that) but that said, who is going to line up next to Jozo (praying that he's fit! ) against PSG and Bayern?


1.) 01 Sep 2017 07:08:46
Boyata hopefully he'll be ready.

2.) 01 Sep 2017 07:25:56
Boyata should be ready if not then lustig.

Giving hope to a fan of the Scots national team is like giving tequila to a Native American, not genetically build for it so it messen with the head and ultimately causes pain and suffering. WGS has out done himself with the genetics patter.
