Ed, do you think we have any chance of taking Vorm from Spurs?


{Ed007's Note - Not with Hugo Lloris being out injured.}

1.) 28 Jan 2018 16:38:12
Oh aye, forgot about that. Rab Douglas it is then?

2.) 28 Jan 2018 18:27:33
I'm still waiting for the 'a trialist' name to reappear from the early 90's.

3.) 28 Jan 2018 19:02:21
I would have the holy golie back can still do a job and with begovic first choice i think he would jump at the chance.



07 Jan 2018 11:36:39
There's a beauty of a "report" on News Now about Southampton preparing 10 mill bid for Armstrong. You know, the Southampton who were (maybe) offering 3 mill for same player last Summer. That will take some topping unless the "Rodgers interested in Sturridge" stuff gains pace.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 15:58:29
What a gift. 2 weeks ago he came on as a sub against Dundee. And Sutton slated him. Sutton as we know tries to be controversial. But he nailed him. Armstrong is a waste of a wage. Since Dundee United he has never improved. If we can get ten bob and get him off the wage bill. Take it.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 16:29:01
Tumshy do I no anything about football never heard so much nonsense in my life Stuart Armstrong is great player and much improved
P. s are you drunk.

Wullie do you think that they are secretly paying posters to make stupid posts.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 18:15:25
Might be a bit touchy here Chris but hope that’s not about me, stupid rumour maybe but don’t think I’ve made a stupid post.

5.) 07 Jan 2018 18:26:46
Tumshie by name and Tumshie by nature. What a ridiculous post.

6.) 08 Jan 2018 15:54:33
Harsh on Armstrong. I'd personally be looking to move him on, but there have been spells where he's been absolutely fantastic for us.



23 Jun 2017 18:27:31
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.

2.) 24 Jun 2017 07:49:50
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.

3.) 24 Jun 2017 10:15:28
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?





Daviebhoy77's banter posts with other poster's replies to Daviebhoy77's banter posts


22 Jan 2019 07:17:51
I'm not panicking yet but pretty confused as to why we don't appear to have had an RB lined up prior to the window. Said before that in June we are potentially looking at signing a back 4 and woulda thought some ground work would be in place towards that. Realise January is difficult time to sign and more could be going on behind scenes but still.


1.) 22 Jan 2019 08:23:44
I think they need to be concerned about LB now that Tierney is struggling. I would like to see a RB as we all do but that can wait now till summer it’s LB we definitely need.



06 Jan 2019 18:19:15
Realise it's a bad time to try and recruit but really hope we are going to attempt to bring in the defensive cover we need. At worse we could be needing to sign across whole back line come Summer (not suggesting KT going by that but he needs cover) . Chipping away with at least a right sided Centre Half who can do a shift at RB would be tidy. Don't know anything about Tim Weah except that his Dad was ok lol! (And once "linked" with us-bigger lol) . As others have mentioned, Burke deal is a real head scratcher for me. Anyway, 3 weeks to go, hopefully stuff is a move behind the scenes.




27 Nov 2018 18:30:45
If Boyata quotes about regretting choosing Celtic over Everton are true I reckon his memory needs a jog. He would never have lasted a season in EPL back when he signed for us. Looking a great player atm but remember the doubts about whether VvD would step up to EPL? Reckon he woulda disappeared.


{Ed007's Note - I think you've picked him up wrong, Davie - the way I read it Boyata was saying he should have got out of City earlier.

"Under Roberto Mancini I got my first chances. I was 19 at the time. After that season I was able to go to Everton. I should have done that.
City became bigger and bigger every year and that does not make it easy for a youth player to continue to grow."

To me he's saying that looking back he should have realised how difficult it would be for him to progress at City while they were spending 100s of millions on players and he should have taken the move to Everton (or any team that would have gave him gametime) at that particular time.}

1.) 27 Nov 2018 19:29:13
Am sure in the same interview he said he had an earlier chance to join us and should have done that as well.

2.) 27 Nov 2018 19:35:58
Agreeing with you ed is how I read it.

3.) 27 Nov 2018 19:35:23
That’s how I read it ed. Funny how he’s out with his stories in the press just now being open n honest think his pr guru trying to help him get some good publicity after the shambles of the summer. Me I’ll never forgive him and as good as he’s been i still wouldn’t give him a jersey.

{Ed007's Note - I don't think it'll make much difference how he looks - I'd still brass neck it and offer Leicester Dedryck + £5/6 million for Benkovic in January.}

4.) 27 Nov 2018 20:56:10
Ed Benkovic would be a fantastic signing for me he could be the next VVD.

{Ed007's Note - I think Benkovic is a better player than van Dijk was when we bought him and I think he's a year or two younger too.}

5.) 28 Nov 2018 05:01:47
Reckon you’re right, took it badly. Agree on Benkovic.

6.) 28 Nov 2018 16:55:59
Fair play to the lad for coming to us on loan, Benkovic has shown himself to be a quality player. I don't know what the realistic chances are of getting him on a permanent deal but my goodness he has shown himself to be not only a strong defender but also a big influence on other defenders in our team.
In a nutshell he has made a major contribution to our leaky defence becoming quite flippin' good. HH.



15 Nov 2018 23:30:50
This international thing truly rips my knitting. The boy Christie is a case in point, hitting momentum and finally making a mark and then we stop yet again for this pointless nonsense. Roll on the league!


1.) 16 Nov 2018 09:56:20
I think many supporters agree with you. The amount of time the players have been distracted and diverted, while their club momentum has been interrupted is ridiculous.
I accept players want to represent their country, but why do we need these excessive fortnight breaks for 1/ 2 competitive matches?
In times gone by the players were called-up a couple of days before the game was played and were back at their clubs the day after and the domestic programme was more or less left intact;
plus, our International rating was never as bad as this while our season went unhindered or overstretched with a 4-6 week extension?
These players have been away for over a week before the first game actually KO's and these 'breaks' are making the football season congested with multiple rearranged fixtures in close succession.
This leaves us with a much shorter close-season for R&R when you consider these crucial European qualifiers are in July.



09 Nov 2018 20:17:52
My boy missed the game last night as 9 and needed bed. Showed him the highlights and then he wanted to see Chris Sutton playing because he knows his voice. I sometimes forget just how brilliant he was.


1.) 09 Nov 2018 22:23:10
Ha ha, I was planning on going to my local with my 8 year old daughter to watch it cos CP on a school night’s a bit much for her. I told her on Wed she’d need to have her homework done by the time I pick her up or we wouldn’t be going. As it turned out she hadn’t done it so I told her we’d be listening to it on the radio and her response was ‘I’ll do my homework in the pub! ’.

2.) 10 Nov 2018 00:06:22
Show him the juventus 4-3 game
Sutton got a brace I think

Great player but who was the better striker - Sutton or big bad john?
Only consider time at Celtic.

3.) 10 Nov 2018 00:48:51
Loved them both but Sutton shades it for me. My two main highlights would be his goal against Ajax in the Amsterdam Arena and the one he scored against Blackburn at Elwood. Fearsome and fearless, what a nightmare if you’re a centre half.

4.) 10 Nov 2018 00:54:18
Big sutton could play anywhere through the middle he was just that good. For me sutton was the better of the two but big hartson can't be forgotten. 2 greats.

5.) 10 Nov 2018 10:15:48
His second goal against Juve is sensational. Love big John but Sutton was more complete player. Total handful for defenders and like you say Amber, could play anywhere.

6.) 10 Nov 2018 14:30:06
Sutton was the better player and better partner for Larsson but hartson was probably a better goal scorer. Personally I preferred Sutton.

7.) 10 Nov 2018 14:38:11
Sutton all day but my god big John could play over 100 goals for our great club says it all.

8.) 10 Nov 2018 14:44:12
Good thing about Sutton, he could play anywhere through the middle of the team. I can remember him playing centre half at ibrokes, cos bobo got sent off the week before, big bad John scored the only goal and they could have played all night and not get past Sutton. I had to have him in my all time Celtic x1 that i have seen, i have him beside Van Dyke at the back. My Team is:

Mcnamara. Van Dyke. Sutton. Tierney
Nakamura. Lennon. Mcstay. Moravcik
Larsson. Pierre VH

I had the pleasure of watching a midfield of provan murdo mcstay and Burns. I also watched Danny McGrain but he was coming to the end of his career. So many great players have played for our club.
