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


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

Oh aye, forgot about that. Rab Douglas it is then?

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?

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?

Would like to see Sinclair kept out of team for weekend too.




16 Feb 2018 02:24:10
Immense tonight! Simply brilliant, Moose holding that ball up was unplayable at times (did everything but finish and I don't care about that) Ajer looking like Baresi, Calmac's tunning and wonderful finish. Brown looking world class. Very happy indeed.




14 Feb 2018 17:20:50
Heard a few calls for a back 5 tomorrow and reckon could be a good call. Maybe Brown as a sweeper and Ntcham and Kouassi in middle with Forrest and Musonda on wings. Thing is I reckon we're likely to see Sinclair and Armstrong ahead of those younger boys. Realise experience is probably the reason but my experience of Sinclair's performance this season (goal count notwithstanding) makes me pretty confident of predicting exactly how he will fare (really hope I'm wrong)


1.) 14 Feb 2018 18:51:19
Need broony in the engine room but u could play jozo ajer and Hendry with the full backs pushed up.

2.) 15 Feb 2018 11:50:32
A back five at home? Then what? A back 9 away? We need to have a fecking go at home at least. Hardly a signal fans paying £30 a skull want to here. Take them on Celtic. We can’t defend so there should be no alternative but to get stuck in.



10 Feb 2018 07:13:41
Shocked and horrified by tragic news about Liam Miller, terrible illness. May he rest in peace, 36 years old, bloody awful.




04 Feb 2018 08:53:29
Bit confused-been hearing a good few people (so much on here to be fair) slagging of Hendry's performance. Considering it was an away game debut where we went from bossing first 10-15 minutes to losing two key men, I thought he handled himself very well. I know we've all heard enough about that pitch, Brillo pad has to be fairest description of that I've heard but throw that into the mix and I think the boy did well. Thinks will come good in midfield too, where for me the real problems were. Musonda might be lightweight but he was everywhere and didn't stop getting into good spaces, needed to ball played to him earlier (or even played to him) every time he got to D on box edge. Forrest did my head in cutting in at top of box every time when he taking it to the line for cutback woulda been less predictable. Speaking of predictable, I'll let people finish my sentence on Sinclair themselves.


1.) 04 Feb 2018 09:53:16
Baffled with the criticism of Hendry i thought he was one of our better players.

2.) 04 Feb 2018 10:18:51
Hendry had a few shaky moments. Got caught out for pace a few times. Lost or gave away possession when trying to go forward, a worry. He may turn into a great defender but he isn’t near that yet and that’s what we needed right now.

He is a project. You never felt, this guy’s the real deal. You thought, ok but prone to making the same mistakes of the players he’s meant to replace.

No better or worse than what we have. Is that enough? Naw it’s no.

3.) 04 Feb 2018 10:40:49
I thought hendry was decent . looks too have a good first touch . he did get caught out of position too much . and ran into trouble when coming out of defence. but first game with new team mates . musonda looked like what he is. an 18 year old with promise. has he the physical presence for the central midfield role? With Sinclair out of form wouldn't the better move have been to put musonda on the left wing?

4.) 04 Feb 2018 10:54:32
A new player, still getting to know his team, tactics and role - in his first game (away) and he loses both defensive partners in the early stages should not be labelled or blamed. Especially when so many of his more experienced team mates were struggling to do even the simple things in a game we never really threatened to score.
It was a bad day, a bad performance and a bad result, for only the second time in two seasons; but we all know that we can (and will) play much better and have to put this down to a deserved victory for Steve Clarke and his team, who did their homework, while we didn't.

5.) 04 Feb 2018 11:00:49
Except he's actually 22 this year.

6.) 04 Feb 2018 11:12:04
Thought that myself drb, Sinclair can't beat the 1st man or pass a 5 yard ball to feet at the moment. I would rather see Johnstone or Miller given a chance, or like you say Musonda. Yes, he has been benched recently, but why not have an enthusiastic, fearless Johnston or Miller coming on.

Sinclair is one of our best players on form, sadly he has been nowhere near the standards he set last season.

7.) 04 Feb 2018 12:16:16
Nobody was blaming Hendry. Just being realistic about his performance. There were times he looked good and other when he took risks and they could have cost us. That’s just what happened. The reason he is in focus is simply because he was brought in to make the defence better as we all knew it had to be improved.

I didn’t see anything that suggests he’s better than what we have. I hope he progresses and cuts out taking Boyata risks when his passing can’t find the man.

That can be sorted. He did ok for his first game, but it still fell short of what I had hoped we would bring in. In the game against Zenit, he would be 3rd choice with Simo and Ajer being ahead of him as both to me look better cb’s.

If the aim was to bring in better than what we had then I’m not convinced after yesterday’s performance.

He will definitely get a run in the team now, so the ball is literally in his court to establish himself. I hope he does it.

8.) 04 Feb 2018 12:26:57
I’d have Musonda in there for Sinclair all day every day The now. Nail on head, doesn’t beat first man, doesn’t complete easiest of passes.

9.) 08 Feb 2018 00:02:02
Kilmarnock won because of the terrible condition of the playing surface and the fact that tactical genius Clarke had narrowed and shortened the pitch . Our players bravely went about their job professionally until they saw 2 of our defenders injured by the playing surface within ten minutes of each other in the first half . From that on our players put their safety first and I certainly wouldn't blame them .
These pitches are absolutely fine if the club management want them to be fine but that certainly wasn't the case at Kilmarnock on Saturday .

10.) 08 Feb 2018 00:05:18
Daviebhoy, I have no idea of what kind of a player Musonda will be for Celtic . I will be amazed if after his 18 mths spell with us he is anyway as good for us as Scot.

Got to laugh about that, Musonda for me looks head and shoulders above anything we have in midfield and cannot be judged on yesterday. Give him til the end of the month and he’ll be first pick.

The exciting thing is that there are a lot of options available once we get past this awful lot of injuries. Ntcham and Kouassi look to me to have the makings of a great partnership. Musonda can play anywhere across that middle and Forrest is like a new signing (sorry for cliche) . It’s a nice headache to have but to avoid one on Sunday, I’d put exact same 11 out.
