Seen Nestor El Maestro is 25/ 1 for the manager job. Had to look him up cos I'd never heard of him but with a name like that I hope he gets it.

We were talking about it today in work and we were convinced it was Paul McStay under an alias 😂.


2.) 15 May 2019 18:24:04
Henrik, that is a flippin cool name for a new manager lol HH.


3.) 16 May 2019 13:23:22
keV you might be spot on about mcstay he's presenting the trophy on Sunday 😂😂.

Toljan deal 'imminent' according to the Daily Record. Must be true.

Roberts to start.

HenriksTongue

1.) 15 Apr 2018 10:35:03
I hope you are right HT.


2.) 15 Apr 2018 11:38:19
Me too!


3.) 15 Apr 2018 11:50:52
would prefer Roberts definitely today over forest. hopefully Rogic gets a start aswell just in behind the moose fancy Rogic for a goal today 16/ 5 with paddy power. let the people sing!


4.) 15 Apr 2018 12:42:35
Surprised Rodgers hasn’t tried Forrest on the left and Roberts on the right given Sinclair’s poor form. Forrest prefers cutting inside anyway. Today’s probably not the day to try it though.


5.) 15 Apr 2018 12:57:42
Said that last week mate. Today will hopefully be the day Sinclair runs riot!

Was in the stadium pretty early this afternoon when only stevie woods and the 3 gks were warming up. A guy shouted SW over (I assumed they knew each other) so he came over for a chat. A couple of other fellow fans came over and they were talking about potential transfers and paddy Roberts. I heard SW say that a big signing is likely and when asked about PR he simply smiled and said you'll have to ask Brendan.
Now read into that what you will but I thought it all looked pretty positive.

HenriksTongue

1.) 30 Jul 2017 07:20:18
I think Stevie woods seems like a good guy. And wouldn't tell a fan or a mate what was happening with signings. He's probably just being nice. I would read nothing into it at all.


2.) 30 Jul 2017 12:44:43
#webelievesteve. sounds a stick on to me. has to be true.


3.) 31 Jul 2017 11:39:08
We all want it to be true. That doesn't mean it is sadly.

And there is no way Stevie would be letting any cats out if bags. The guys a pro. So, meh.

But by feck do I hope it's true!


4.) 31 Jul 2017 18:11:22
Just passing on what I heard. I didn't say he told these punters any secrets but it did sound positive.


5.) 31 Jul 2017 18:34:00
I hope it's true mate. I could reduce my Valium intake.

Has Skinnybhoy spoken to his contact yet about the marquee signing that's imminent? What an exciting time to be a Tim!

HenriksTongue

1.) 24 Aug 2016 15:58:55
Just seen on another forum that some board member says we are going to be very busy until the deadline? players in/ out? ain't got a clue.


2.) 24 Aug 2016 17:49:06
Henrik sorry not spoken to her yet! A friend from Liverpool told me that rumour down there is we are after Sakho and Lucas? Don't know how reliable maybe Ed can confirm I thought Sakho was a defender. There will also be a further few leaving Celtic.

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard anything about us being in for a Liverpool player.}


3.) 24 Aug 2016 14:04:43
Spoken to a friend in Liverpool apparently rumours down there are Sakho or Lucas to us? Maybe Es can confirm if this is a rumour on Liverpool forums.

{Ed091's Note - Celtic couldnt afford eithers wage


4.) 24 Aug 2016 19:32:53
ed091 maybe winning trophies, the CL and good wage is what they want rather than money and no medals? I know they have the cash to show for the career.

{Ed091's Note - youre right, theyre both signing so they can win a 1 horse race.


5.) 24 Aug 2016 20:31:52
Cheers ed091 with regards to wages I was told the marquee signing was not coming for the money but for the prestige of playing for club in Europe and to win trophies! Which makes me think this particular player may not have won much in career having played at high level 🤔🤔 what's your thoughts?

{Ed091's Note - a club in europe after 3 seasons out despite being the only team capable of winning their division.... A scottish team in the CL is simply making up the numbers. If sakho or lucas want a massive wage drop, to move to scotland and be embarrassed in the CL group stages, then sure, celtic are signing them both. you heard it here first.


6.) 26 Aug 2016 07:32:37
Wrong ed091 we have not had 3 years out of Europe. This is the first time in three years we have qualified for the group stages of the cl. Can I ask you a question too ed091. What would have to the EPL if sky decided to pull out . and the only reason your league is bigger is because of sky TV money. If we had that kind of investment up here from sky our league would be as just as good as yours.

{Ed091's Note - are you as deluded as BR? There are many reasons, which don't include money, as to why the spl doesnt come close to the epl. Location: who'd live in Motherwell over London?
Who would want to play in front of (majority) of minuscule grounds when you can play in front of old Trafford, anfield etc.
The weather, the food, the lack of home grown talent in Scotland and the fact it's a 1 team league, makes it an unappealing league.
It's really nothing to do with money.

Bit of a cynical post and I'm sure most will disagree with but is there any chance the powers that be don't actually want us to continue dominating the way we have been the past 3 years or so?

I live down south and on a daily basis I get the usual Scottish football is crap, one horse race etc etc. Most folk ask do I not get bored winning all the time? Of course growing up in the 90s with rangers domination I explain why I love my club being on the verge of a treble treble.

My question is would it be possible that PL/ DD want our rival (s) to be closer to us for competitions' sake and will not want to ensure we win 10 in a row?

Just wondered what Ed and everyone else's thoughts are. Part of me can't shake off the feeling that football is a bit rigged at times.

HenriksTongue

{Ed007's Note - I have no doubts that with the amount of money involved football is fixed at certain levels mate - there's even some talk that Leicester's Pub League win was rigged by an Asian betting syndicate - but we only need to look at the SFA's treatment of the original Rangers and the Calciopoli scandal in Italy a few years back - but from what I hear from people close to the board, Lawwell and Desmond especially, they are as desperate as us to keep ahead of any Ibrox based club, how far in front is the obvious question. Ed001 has repeatedly said that referees in England show an obvious bias towards Man City to ensure they win and keep 11 on the park.
To be honest I think the religious & political divide that exists in Scotland would make it hard to fix games up and both parties know what was going on. I think up here it would be more likely betting on a red card that can be controlled by as few people as possible.
I'm not giving this website any credence but a lot of people do think it's spot on and there's plenty of others out there if you want to look into it:

www.footballisfixed.blogspot.com/


1.) 15 May 2019 13:55:41
Interesting. Cheers Ed. It would be amazing if DD/ PL actually spent some real money getting a top coaching team in. We all heard that DD essentially told PL to bury sevco after they beat us in the semi final in 2016. I'm hoping (but not holding my breath) that the defeat on Sunday is the catalyst to ensure we continue to dominate.

Incidentally, who makes the decision? Is it the board who vote, or does DD basically say who he wants in?

{Ed007's Note - It's ultimately a board decision but they'll just back whoever Desmond and Lawwell agree on.}


2.) 15 May 2019 14:39:11
In all honesty. Has Desmond ever wanted to bury rangers going by the way the clubs been run in the last 6 month that seems a bit far fetched.


3.) 15 May 2019 15:27:12
We have dominated from the year 2000 and are going for treble treble!


4.) 15 May 2019 15:36:53
The old firm is a cash cow both sides want to maintain.

Go and Google the 1909 Scottish cup final.

They drew and went to replay. Another draw. Instead of extra time the game was set for a third replay.

Fans of both clubs invaded the park and tore down the goalposts as they felt it was being manipulated to make more cash from a third game.

Unfortunately our fans these days are much more trusting and almost refuse to question the actions of what is ultimately Tory businessmen running clubs. Bizarre.


5.) 15 May 2019 16:11:23
So do you think the website Ed posted has some truth to it? We know you're a bit of troll but genuinely interested to hear other fans thoughts.


6.) 15 May 2019 16:30:29
If you read through the info and the statistics either the matches play our perfectly to look like match fixing or it is match fixing haha. It’s crazy.


7.) 15 May 2019 17:05:14
Really interesting thread this, it has crossed my mind that a lot of this shenanigans goes on. Sadly the game is all about money these days and to generate interest in the game you need competition. Makes you wonder if the club really do want to bury the club playing out of Ibrox. The next couple of seasons will tell, we have the resources to do it, but will we? . You get the feeling in an ideal world the club would like a closely contested league with Celtic winning it which keeps the interest from around the world.


8.) 15 May 2019 17:33:30
HT I was born in 86 and grew up watching them win everything. I celebrate every single win and trophy like it’s the first we have won in years. The pain from growing up will never leave, as will all the sevconian’s pain who were born in the late 90’s early 00’s 😂.


9.) 15 May 2019 21:59:56
I'm a year older than you Kev and my first cup final was Ibrox against Raith Rovers. The stick I took at school the next day I'll never forget. In fact all the slagging I took was worth it when you compare us to them now. I just hope the board don't let us down.
Like my dad always used to say to me "it's not easy supporting Celtic".


10.) 16 May 2019 00:09:19
Stevie we don't need to bury them they done that all by themselves.


11.) 16 May 2019 01:11:02
Henrikstongue
Imo I think dd and pl want to dominate rangers but at the least possible cost they can because it is a business, just like when rangers went down they appointed Deila probably the cheapest option possible just enough to keep the likes of Aberdeen at bay while not having to spend much money everything they do revolves around making sure the board is happy while making money, these kind of people have money because they are smart only spending it when they have too and even then it’s grudged! it all makes for frustrating watching but their never going to spend more money than they have too, the way they see it is why spend 50m to win the spl when you could spend 10m, still win it and with a bit luck could maybe get into the champions league.


12.) 16 May 2019 01:25:40
HT same mate, made up for it in the Scottish Cup though, big pierres header. Only trophy I got to see mcstay lift as captain as a celtic fan. Too young to remember previous ha ha.

With the news today that Lee Congerton has resigned, does this indicate a completely new management team to come in? I can't say I was sad to hear of his departure as I don't think many of us really thought he did a good job although Ed has said he's very highly rated in the game so who knows.
Any idea of who might replace him or will a DoF come in in his place?

Anyway only 3 games left this season. Let's get a good result at Ibrox tomorrow but most importantly win the treble treble. What a great time to be a Tim!

HenriksTongue

Congerton gone. Great news!

Hi Ed got a text from a mate saying Griffiths behaviour of late is unacceptable and the club are done with him. The text also said him and his Mrs turned up at players lounge and were told to leave cos they were steamin, and also didn't attend Cesar's funeral.
Hopefully is fake news but have you heard anything?

HenriksTongue

{Ed007's Note - I've not heard anything like that and I'd be surprised if it's true. I do know LG was at Craig Tara in Ayr over the weekend to do the trophy presentations etc at an ESF football tournament for kids.}


1.) 07 May 2019 11:23:45
He was in the stand with the girlfriend at killie game and looked stone cold.


2.) 07 May 2019 11:44:30
These stories are going to plague Griffiths for a long time but I'd take them all with a pinch of salt.
People will be out to make the wee man's live hard.


3.) 07 May 2019 12:13:10
Cheers Ed. I hoped it was nonsense and the guy who sent me it is a bun. I'd like to think Griffiths is smarter than that?

{Ed007's Note - Just block his number.}


4.) 07 May 2019 22:34:42
Yes Kev83, unfortunately that's true. He hasn't helped himself in the past on many occasions but hopefully we'll see a different attitude from him when (if) he returns for pre-season. Griff on form is a tremendous player. HH.

Think it will be Lennon but hope I'm wrong. Problem is I can't think of many realistic candidates. Like ed said, it would be interesting to see who's applied. We can hope.

I think Lennon will be a candidate but I don't think he'll get the job. He may be offered a job with the club but whether he takes it or not is a different matter. Love the guy but hope its not him.

Don't know how you can say PL and the board have made a mess of this. It was Brendan who abandoned us. Lennon made sure we won the league and hopefully the Scottish Cup.
