Roberts to start.


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.


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.



24 Aug 2016 11:48:39
Has Skinnybhoy spoken to his contact yet about the marquee signing that's imminent? What an exciting time to be a Tim!


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.



31 Mar 2016 14:51:27
Heard from a good source that Steven Fletcher is on his way. Apparently he's bought a house in Glasgow and wants to finish his career at Celtic. Was told it's a done deal but I hope not. 7 years too late in my opinion.


1.) 31 Mar 2016 17:20:44
Don't want him anywhere near celtic.
Not good enough

2.) 31 Mar 2016 19:29:53
Funny that considering he is in talks with Marseille over a permanent move.

3.) 01 Apr 2016 10:33:00
Just passing on what I've been told mate.

4.) 01 Apr 2016 12:17:37
Can't see how Marseille would be in a rush to hand him a permanent deal, he hasn't scored a league goal for them yet which doesn't really surprise me.

5.) 01 Apr 2016 22:49:27
He HAS had a home in Glasgow for years!



15 Dec 2015 18:44:59
Ed is there any truth in the rumour we're close to a deal for Serbian winger Zivkovic? Heard he's been dubbed the Serbian Messi so must be good!


{Ed007's Note - There's nothing in it, Ajax turned down a 7 million Euros bid for Richairo Zivkovic in the summer and although he's at Willem II on loan his Ajax contract runs until 2019.}

1.) 15 Dec 2015 22:55:36
Ed does zivkovic not play for partizan Belgrade? And if it is him this rumour will no doubt have been started by a football manager fanatic lol.

{Ed007's Note - Sorry mate, I've never even heard of him lol.}

2.) 16 Dec 2015 12:29:06
Teams have had bids in the region of 8 million euros knocked back for him already. Supposedly.

Not football related but any plumbers/ gas engineers etc I'm looking for some advice.
Looking at buying a house and seen one with warm air heating and water storage unit as opposed to modern combi boiler. I'm not sure how old the system and/ or house is exactly but just wondered if this should be avoided or if it's economical etc? Thanks Hail Hail.


{Ed007's Note - If it's what I'm thinking about my wee mate is in a private let across the road from me and his heating (is it storage heaters?) costs him a fortune to run.}

1.) 24 Sep 2018 14:44:40
No not electric storage heaters ed. It's warm air through vents throughout the house.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

2.) 24 Sep 2018 14:47:33
Some people like the warm air as it’s instant heat mate and the house is usually designed for warm air not so good if there is any rooms without a vent! Warm air units still get fitted mate and you can still get parts for them despite what the cowboys that are the gasboard will tell you! Warm air heats up fast mate but wouldn’t be as economical as a modern boiler.

3.) 24 Sep 2018 15:07:48
@henrik avoid any place with storage heaters as ED007 says, also with these older un renovated houses the amount of work needed doing is prohibitive, just installing central heating alone will cost upwards of £3k depending on size of house.
My advice is keep looking.

4.) 24 Sep 2018 15:20:34
Ed and Campsie Bhoy Keeping Fellow TIMS and Their Families Warm Cost Effectively! 👍😂☘️ PS: was down your neck of the woods for Mass yesterday CB.

5.) 24 Sep 2018 15:51:03
Cheers Bhoys. Like I say it's not storage heaters which cost a fortune to run, however its a water storage unit. I don't really understand all that and someone has told me it would be best to rip it out and replace with a water CH system with combi boiler. Which will obviously cost a few grand. Should I ask PL for a loan? Or Close Bros?

6.) 24 Sep 2018 15:55:19
If it is that type of system Henrik I would imagine that it airs/ serves the entire block? If there is no gas cooker in your kitchen you would need to check the property itself is served with gas or can be

As a Landlord your options could and will be limited if it serves more than one property mate.

7.) 24 Sep 2018 16:28:04
No its a detached house Jamie with a gas cooker. For some reason it's just not got gas CH so wondered if there are many drawbacks of warm air heating and water storage tank compared to a combi boiler.

8.) 24 Sep 2018 16:50:51
JFP a was there today for a wee wonder I will be there for next month on October day! It wouldn’t be cheap mate to put in a new wet system as you would need new radiators boiler and pipes. What did home report say about it mate did it say it was working?

9.) 24 Sep 2018 17:17:38
Very old heating idea. It's a dry warm air pushed through the house. No ideal if anyone has allergies.

Cheap to run would check you can still get components. As local authorities ripped them out and replaced with combi. Very few components in them .

If it was me buying house I would rip out and install a combi.

10.) 24 Sep 2018 17:24:39
CB I’ll be there in October too for the crowning Mass and I’ll identify myself! 😂👍☘️.

11.) 24 Sep 2018 19:05:50
Not a heating engineer bud but I’m a sparky. Anything that uses electricity for heating and hot water is going to cost more than gas. There are some really good warm air systems out there obv don’t know what you have. Storage heating is being faded out bhoys there are far better alternatives now such as intellirads that are oil filled and customise to the environment they are fitted.

12.) 24 Sep 2018 19:18:49
Just read you have gas in property no brainer central heating system n boiler bud.

{Ed007's Note - I remember when I was wee and we had to put an electric switch (called an emerger or something) on hours before we wanted a bath or that - it was caveman stuff in Fairhill back in the day 😁
Once there was a team of us dogging school in my mate's house with a carry-out to watch a bootleg copy of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film and the lecky boy came to read the meter and my mate's dad had a metal spike up through the meter to stop it turning, even the pub down the bottom of my street got done about 4/5 years ago for running their lecky off the street light supply, you'd make a fortune in my scheme Welshy lol

13.) 24 Sep 2018 19:36:23
Electric heating costs Approx 13-16 per kWh (unit) . Gas costs about 4.5p per kWh. Gas is about 4 times cheaper to run. A combination will pay for itself in about 2 3 years.

{Ed007's Note - Big Benny touting for business on here instead of pestering folk on the phone.....

14.) 24 Sep 2018 19:43:22
Ed it was an immercor which was shorthand for immersion heater I had wan tae 👍😂☘️.

{Ed007's Note - They were brutal man 😂

15.) 24 Sep 2018 19:45:25
thats ancient heating the warm air units. i thought they where all condemned. it il cost a few bucks to put a new central heating system in.

16.) 24 Sep 2018 19:46:32
Haha my uncle stayed in possil and sussed our if you put nail varnish remover over the old cards covers the 3 holes the meter stamped on them made aright few quid between that and ripping the copper out of empty closes 😂.

{Ed007's Note - 😂😂

17.) 24 Sep 2018 20:13:33
My Granda used to use an auld photograph negative in the side of the meter and it slowed the cycle of the wheel in the meter right down 😝 if the leccy man ever chapped the door the dug would go tonto and tell him he needed to put the dug away for his protection gave him plenty of time to get the negative out from the side of the meter 😂😂👍.

{Ed007's Note - My dad would have been all over anything like that and probably knew all the dodges but there's no way my mum would ever have let him do anything dodgy in the house. I've heard stories of people using a lollipop stick as well, and a magnet.}

18.) 24 Sep 2018 20:40:54
used be able turn gas meters round get free gas but yu need know what your doing lol.

{Ed007's Note - On my second day as an engineer an old boy showed me the exact steel and machining to make 'fake' pound coins that worked in cigarette and vending machines, sadly not puggies though. A Friday night at Hamilton Palace stocked me up for fags all week 😎
Are you still in Egypt? Why the name change?}

19.) 24 Sep 2018 21:16:12
We don't need heating in ma hoose the way celtic are playing the now there's constantly steam coming out ma ears.

{Ed007's Note - That's just the steam from the pish that comes out your mouth escaping.


20.) 24 Sep 2018 21:23:59
Gas heating installer to trade . Very old system by the sounds of it and honestly would benift from a new install . Save money in the long run.

21.) 24 Sep 2018 21:31:28
Still in Egypt bud back sat night so miss the sheep game 😬
Name change was while back couldn’t log on for some reason.

21 Sep 2018 09:03:12
Watching the game last night was all too predictable again. In my opinion we need to replace Rogic with Griff and play Eddy just behind him. Tierney put a couple of great crosses in and a proper striker (like Griff) would have been on the end of them. I like eddy but he's not an out and out striker for me.

We really need to work on our corners. Winning them really lifts the crowd then either mcgregor or Ntcham floats it too high or can't beat the first man. Frustrating! Defence looks better and Tierney best player on the park. Love lustig but perhaps he needs benched and Ajer or Gamboa in instead. Hope BR sees this too.


1.) 21 Sep 2018 10:48:11
I honestly can’t remember when we last scored directly from a corner. Every time we get one my heart rate returns to normal because we do feck all with them. Hopefully Benkovic can improve that as I thought he was excellent last night. If not then corners are a waste of time and certainly not worth getting our hopes up over. We win them mostly because our final baw is piss poor. We need to give a run to Morgan or Arzani as Forrest is back to his inconsistent best, McGreggor and Rogic are also toiling. I would drop Forrest for Morgan, bring in Griff for either of the others and try and up the tempo with someone who isn’t rubbish scared to take a player on and be able to beat them.

Sunday will be another test, Rogers needs to come up with something different, we are as predictable as Scottish weather in November. He has less options than he wanted but he needs to find a way with a depletion of class nonetheless.

2.) 21 Sep 2018 12:15:06
Magic was boyatas straight fae a corner against Hamilton?
One of the major reasons I wanted the griff to start last night is his delivery from dead ball situations.
We have guys like boyata ajer lustig and now Benkovic that can attack a corner but our delivery is dog rubbish most the time.



04 Sep 2018 13:53:51
So it's obviously ok to kick a player off the ball. Can't wait till Brown does it and gets a retrospective ban!


1.) 04 Sep 2018 15:44:18
SPFL have just advised Slippy G that its open season on all other teams for the rest of the season especially after Morales had his red card overturned and MaGregor got away with jumping on that other boy and throwing an elbow.

3.) 04 Sep 2018 19:37:38
We should take this to Uefa. It’s a feckin scandal. They are going tonto over a 50/ 50 can you imagine the press if Griff had done what Moreorlessos had done? Or Gitdon had kicked Laughable then went in to save our arse?

Cheating persons the lot of them.

4.) 05 Sep 2018 11:23:45
Alright lads agree with u lot shagger should have been sent off and how the f@ck did Briony get booked.

5.) 05 Sep 2018 13:20:51
Remember how many times they replayed Craig Gordon high kick. . scandalous but what did you really expect. Move along nothing to see here. No financial black hoe, no obvious bias in press or SFA corrupt to core. Something must be done but UEFA just as rotten. Surely there is something collectively football fans could do to take these fucjers to task. Football fans should BOYCOTT international games. hit the SFA in the pocket.?

6.) 05 Sep 2018 13:23:31
Henrik's Tongue I hope he doesn't kick out like McGregor because I don't want to see Brown suspended.



31 Aug 2018 15:29:58
Benkovic signs on loan. Happy with that.


1.) 31 Aug 2018 17:38:58
Why? He can’t even get in their squad! And he is only a stop gap, total lack of ambition and lazy scouting. If Leicester didn’t decide at last minute to loan him out who were we going to get? No f3ckin clue.



20 Aug 2018 11:38:20
So what's the craic with the Bruma rumour? Nonsense or has it got some truth in it? Surely going to add a player or 2 within the next week or so.


1.) 20 Aug 2018 11:48:51
As long as it’s not John Terry!

Interesting Tim. I'm hoping that the disappointing summer window together with the rumours about dembele and mcginn and other targets we never got in will ensure we get a couple of quality players in either in January or next summer. Did your friend get any hints of this?

We're blaming the manager because it's 100% his fault. He needs to turn it around very quickly. Does anyone on here enjoy watching us play? It's pathetic the way we pass it around and makes it incredibly easy for our opponents.

16 Sep 2018 21:01:00
If we take long shots from the likes of Rogic and Ntcham players like Griffiths and Forrest should be on the keeper immediately I'm case he spills it. That pressure would surely pay off.

You must have missed the Hibs game last weekend? None of our players cover themselves in glory away in Europe. Not one.

I dread European games now. It's like watching the same dvd over and over again. You know we're going to give the ball away cheaply, you know we're going to lose sloppy goals, you know we're going to look lost. I'm totally sick of it. Let's just give it up this year and concentrate domestically. It's not as if we'll spend the money we get anyway.

I thought overall we defended well. My issue is Craig Gordon. He gives the defence absolutely no confidence and needs replaced with a top keeper. Love lustig but we're crying out for a new right back. What a difference these 2 things would make to us.
