Celtic will travel down to play Sunderland on July 29th, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Stadium of Light opening.

Moussa Dembele has been passed fit for tomorrow and may even start.


1.) 26 May 2017 15:32:40
Do not know if I would start him after being out with a hamstring injury and no game time, start with Griffiths and bring Moussa on second half.

2.) 26 May 2017 15:37:49
Thanks Ed, posted something similar should have known you were on the case (y)

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

3.) 26 May 2017 16:53:57
Griff should start tim moussa on bench.



22 May 2017 23:02:11


1.) 23 May 2017 00:31:54
It's been blocked Ed, was it the planning permission for the hotel complex?

{Ed007's Note - Aye mate, I don't know why it's not coming up, the link still works for me.}

2.) 23 May 2017 00:35:08
Sorry Ed, didn't paste the whole link. Monday night Gin affects me a wee bit!

{Ed007's Note - It's amazing the amount of folk that drink gin now. Ed002's been a connoisseur for years and knows her stuff, expensive stuff right enough. It's not something I ever drank but I remember tasting it when I was about 13 and my mate stole his mams lol}

3.) 23 May 2017 01:01:53
Only 'discovered' Gin a couple of years ago. I'm a Malt man but malt is too good to scoop in big drams. A nice Gin and Tonic goes down a treat. Some Gins are more expensive than good malts nowadays though!
Monday night drinking isn't as sad as it seems, I was on shift all weekend so I've just moved it on!

{Ed007's Note - Working shifts is a nightmare man, I used to be coming in off nightshift with a bottle of wine and a few cans playing video games when the wife was getting ready to go out to work. She'd phone during her break and I'd be dancing about the living in my boxers with the Rebs on full blast.}

4.) 23 May 2017 01:28:58
Superb Ed, I'm much the same. I've got a ragin hun living next door so the rebs come on now and again just to annoy him! I'm wide awake the now but I'll crash and burn In an instant Lol!

{Ed007's Note - My neighbours used to get the barbecue and beers out lol

5.) 23 May 2017 12:38:37
ED007 I am not getting link up either. Have they turned down our applications for hotel etc.

{Ed007's Note - It's been set to private, Tim for some reason. It's just the application for planning permission for the hotel, new ticket office and museum.}

6.) 23 May 2017 16:12:00
It's amazing how w got from a planning application to gin, only on our site, absolutely brilliant lol.

7.) 23 May 2017 17:57:56
I can get the link up.

8.) 23 May 2017 19:09:33
tony2bhoy: Did you get the pills for that. lol.

9.) 23 May 2017 19:59:44
Lol Peter if so tony where did you get them :-P.

10.) 23 May 2017 20:23:53
I just copied and passed the full link that Ed released on to google.

11.) 24 May 2017 00:01:44
you don't need they pills jamie all you need to do is have a look at your bank statement for the same result lol.



18 May 2017 19:34:54
Celtic have held further talks with Dominic Solanke.

Celtic, Southampton and Liverpool will all be at the Lens vs Niort match tomorrow evening to watch Jean-Kevin Duverne in probably his last game for Lens.

There's no update on the Demebele situation.


1.) 18 May 2017 21:09:36
Don't think Griffiths has done himself any favours there Ed. Not quite the level of Commons/ Deila but idiotic all the same.

{Ed007's Note - He'll get fined for that.}

2.) 18 May 2017 21:35:38
Just fined? He'll do well to play again after a "f*ck off". Well that's what it looked like to me? Am i right in my lip-reading?

3.) 18 May 2017 21:37:43
He got a kiss Ed, haha.

{Ed007's Note - The jammy sod. :-D

4.) 18 May 2017 21:54:33
BR a class act every time he speaks.

5.) 18 May 2017 21:58:13
Hope that's not held against Leigh. He's waited all season for his chance and probably wants to make up for lost time and thought he was excellent tonight. If looks could kill though 😬.

6.) 18 May 2017 22:17:31
LG really isn't the sharpest. He never seems to see the big picture. He scores, we are 3 up and the game is won. We have two more games looming to rewrite the history books.

He is our only fit senior striker and BR obviously wants to rest him and protect him from picking up an injury. His reaction is to tell the manager to f**k off! He is his own worst enemy.

{Ed007's Note - That's a pretty spot on and fair assessment (clap)

7.) 18 May 2017 22:25:16
Stupid daft silly no more no less hopefully apologies, learns to keep emotions in check.

{Ed007's Note - It looks as if Rodgers told him his reasons for subbing him but there'll probably be a quiet chat, a small fine and a forfeit to be decided by the players then it'll be forgot about.}

8.) 18 May 2017 23:13:39
Are they not talking about big bucks for Duverne Ed? Especially if Southampton lose VVD. On the LG incident, BR handled it well: never reacted in front of the cameras, put on the wee togetherness bit and then will have had a more serious word with him behind closed doors and a fine to follow. No need for it to be blown up into anything bigger, everybody moves on.

{Ed007's Note - I've no idea about how much Lens want, I just know Celtic will be watching him tomorrow night.}

9.) 19 May 2017 01:53:53
Stan Petrov 19 - So did Fredo from Michael and we all know how that turned out.

10.) 19 May 2017 08:02:04
Jonbhoy, Maybe like Harry Henderson he will get a kiss and be released.

11.) 19 May 2017 08:49:14
Leigh Griffiths to get the hump and submit a transfer request when we sign another striker. probably end up at Hibs on loan or something. he's a great player but I just get the vibe Rodgers doesn't want drama and doesn't fancy him.

Just my thoughts.

12.) 20 May 2017 17:22:10
Strange, I certainly don't claim to be an excellent lip reader, and I havn t seen the conversation where L Griffiths told Brendan Rodgers to "f k off "



18 May 2017 18:45:13

Celtic XI v Partick Thistle: Gordon, Gamboa, Sviatchenko, Boyata, Izaguirre; Brown, McGregor, Rogic, Roberts, Forrest, Griffiths.

Sunderland Season  Review

24 May 2017 09:39:36
{Ed's Note - We have posted a new article entitled, Sunderland Season Review


1.) 24 May 2017 10:44:52
Would you take Jason denayer back if the chance arose? Thought he was great for us a couple of seasons ago playing with VVD at the back. Still only 21 as well. Don't know if it's playing for a diddy club like Sunderland but he's not the first player to go there and underperform. I was a fan of Adam Matthews but he was rotten for them. He's disappeared since though so maybe he doesn't have it?

2.) 24 May 2017 11:39:34
Henrik I kept an eye on him on all their live games on SKY and Denayer looked like he had put on 4 stone, so no, give him a bodyswerve, he obviously was not training properly.

3.) 24 May 2017 18:33:45
Involved in trouble outside a nightclub in Belgium

The only way I'd have him back was to have a word in young pat Roberts ear about life at city and lower half EPL teams.



15 May 2017 14:35:29


1.) 15 May 2017 15:54:58
Thanks for that Ed I did not see it when it was on Very interesting I loved what BR was saying and I think he is very articulate and political also the way he answered which is good IMO.

{Ed007's Note - No probs, Tony. I think it's a very honest interview and just shows again the class of the man Brendan Rodgers is.}

2.) 15 May 2017 19:28:53
Brilliant, just brilliant.

3.) 15 May 2017 20:15:16
Phenomenal! 🍀🍀🍀.

4.) 15 May 2017 20:29:53
BR: Absolute Class.

5.) 15 May 2017 22:24:35
This guy just oozes class.

6.) 16 May 2017 06:45:07
Top interview, all the right questions asked, all the right answers provided.

Hail Hail.

7.) 16 May 2017 10:39:25
superb! We're sittin pretty these days, Tims :D.



15 May 2017 14:28:52
Is anyone else get a bit worried with Stuart Armstrong's contract situation? I had heard everything was agreed weeks ago but it all seems to have went quiet.


1.) 15 May 2017 15:02:25
If you are Ed then we all should be! Is there genuine interest from WBA?

{Ed007's Note - Yes along with Everton and Newcastle too. Armstrong has always said he fancies a crack in the German league so I'm sure his agent could drum up some interest over there too.}

2.) 15 May 2017 15:34:11
Well come the end of the month he's in the final year of his contract. And that ain't good.

So what's happening? Either: It's just a case of crossing Ts and dotting Is and we're about to hear some good news; we're playing hard ball and need to pull our finger out and give one of our best players what he deserves; or he wants off, in which case we need to cash in.

In January he was talking up his relationship with BR, how he felt settled at Celtic for the first time and what a privilege it was to be winning trophies and playing CL football. So it's certainly odd to have had no developments.

{Ed007's Note - We need to get Armstrong tied down so fingers crossed we're worrying over nothing

3.) 15 May 2017 16:09:24
its all sorted 4 year deal seemingly he was mumping and moaning to other players mid season about his mate gms not getting a game but he seams to be over that now hence rodgers recently giving him the captains armband a couple of times to sweeten him up for signing the deal, their meant to be holding it back to announce in cup final week.

4.) 15 May 2017 16:10:55
I wasn't til you mentioned it ed. I figured it was just a matter of timing of the announcement. Id like to think he's above the likes of west brom n newcastle and was going to be with us for another 3/ 4year before heading off on a euro adventure. Be a huge loss for us in the way he has developed.

{Ed007's Note - It's never good going into a summer window with one of your top players entering the final year of his deal but hopefully the Club are making the right noises to SA and his agent over it.}

5.) 15 May 2017 17:38:30
He played well for Scotland in their last World cup match, maybe the interest has stemmed from there.
Hopefully he'll sign, but the crazy money players can earn in the English Premier league is always going to be hard to compete with.

6.) 15 May 2017 18:49:26
I've heard he is supposed to be signing new deal in Cup Final week, but that's just a rumour I've heard.

{Ed007's Note - I heard that about the cup semi too, JB. I hope you're right.}

7.) 15 May 2017 19:22:17
I said the same thing to a few mates about a month ago Ed. SA was the one player I thought we could loose this summer. The longer it drags on without an announcement the more nervous I am getting.

He has been outstanding this season. I know we all have a tendency to inflate the ability of our players but I think he is our answer to Frank Lampard. I don't mind taking pelters for that. He is a player going places and will improve beyond recognition over the next few seasons. He should be given a bumper deal because he is going to be top class.

8.) 15 May 2017 20:37:55
I reckon itll be before the cup final, can't see him going atm, seems a level headed kid.

9.) 15 May 2017 20:41:14
Armstrong is in my eyes is our captain in waiting. He is turning into one of of most important players.
The next 3-4 years we will see the class player that he is .



Zonal Marking Gets A Bad Press

30 Apr 2017 05:08:18
{Ed's Note - We have posted a new article entitled, Zonal Marking Gets A Bad Press


1.) 30 Apr 2017 07:48:46
Good write up that, whoever is responsible. When I've been sitting listening to those very pundits argue about zonal marking all I've thought is don't blame the game, blame the player. What I mean by that is in most cases, is the flaw with either system, not actually the system at all, but the individual? The misapplication of what they have been told to do and individual errors. I agree with the overall sentiment and would say that it is often the man who wants to win the ball the most (or prevent their opponent from doing so) that will end up victorious. The info about corners becoming less effective is interesting, and supports a suspicion I've had a few times.

{Ed001's Note - thank you JT.}

2.) 30 Apr 2017 09:39:06
Read that being a clear supporter for man to man marking at corners as I have never been able to see the benefit of letting a man get a run on you for a corner but now see why so many teams opt for it. Iv always felt it was lazy or shirking away from responsibilities if everybody picks up there man then they know who there responsible for as for keepers they get way too much protection it's shocking seeing a keeper waving at fresh air and blaming a man infront of them when the same theory applies if your committed enough to win that ball you will. Good read. Andy Gray is a walloper!

{Ed001's Note - cheers CB. I admit I was always a man-to-man guy until recently myself. The last couple of years talking it over with professional coaches and players has changed my opinion completely. Though I still think a mix is better, personally.}

3.) 30 Apr 2017 11:23:04
I must admit I never did like zonal marking and couldn't understand it or why it was used (even questioning managers who have forgotten more about football than i will ever know, lol) but i reckon it just gets highlighted more when the opposition team score nobody mentions anything about it when the zonal marking actually works. Hence the bad press.

I don't know why my reply didn't come up there. Anyway, I think the idiot should keep his mouth shut and keep his nose out of things that has nothing to do with him.
How would he have liked it if Jose Mourinho had came out and said he wanted the Man Utd job during his disastrous spell there? I knew he had no class but this is a new low even for him.
He basically said the club would need to give him substantial money to spend so for once I applaud Peter Lawwell for his frugal approach - anything that keeps that clown Moyes away from CFC has to be a good thing.

William Troost-Ekong's contract with FC Groningen runs until 30-06-217 and he is currently on loan to FC Dordrecht until this summer. He only left Spurs for FC Groningen in the summer of 2013 signing a 4-year-deal. He played 2 games for them before joining FC Dordrecht on loan in January 2014 until the end of the 2013/14 season then last summer he was sent back to FC Dordrecht on loan for the entire 2014/15 season.
That's why the name of the source website is filtered out, Tony, they just make up stories to attract hits without checking their facts, hit-whoring. If they can't get his contract details right what chance do you think their rumours are true?

JB I spoke to Jeanette and passed on your thanks, she also said:

'We are not there yet but I hope it makes a wee difference for some people right away.'

It's not as if you didn't do your bit to help, JB. (clap)
