Nae live chat today Ed? ☘️.


{Ed007's Note - Ed033's working on it mate, sorry.}

1.) 26 Nov 2017 14:38:59
Cheers Ed.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

2.) 29 Nov 2017 08:32:15
Well ED I think that this game tonight will be the biggest challenge this year to our domestic run tight pitch nae DM though we have the Griff. How do u think BR will change it up I think it could be Two or three changes with this starting line up Gordon
Patrick R

{Ed007's Note - I'd be happy with that starting line-up, Rich.}

3.) 29 Nov 2017 12:55:17
I'd go with:


Gamboa Boyata Simunovic Tierney

Brown Ntcham

Roberts Rogic Sinclair

Brendan Rodgers seems to be echoing the thoughts of many of us that the financial gap between us and the PSGs and Barcelona's of this world isn't a good enough excuse for us not competing and getting closer to them. Despite all the talk about how good they are and they were excellent doesn't hide the fact that the other night was a total embarrassment that some of us seem to be accepting as inevitable due to a gap that can't be bridged.

But he seems to be suggesting a lack of ambition by the board with which I'd agree. In saying that Brendan has now criticised the fans, players and board but he could also maybe look a bit closer to home given that we've now suffered our two heaviest European defeats in our history under his leadership. ☘️.




31 Aug 2017 17:50:37
Looks like we're FAVOURITES to sign this ODDSON Ed? ☘️.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 18:22:33
ED001/ ED007 is it true that if this goes ahead we have option to buy the lad for £10m, seems a big price for Celtic to even think about offering.

{Ed007's Note - People are speculating that the fee would be 10 million Euros but really nobody knows for sure yet if there is an option to buy or how much it will be. It would make sense though as if the fans take to him it would ease their pain - and ire - when Dembele leaves next summer.}

2.) 31 Aug 2017 18:45:45
Very clever IMO, If Duverne arrived your looking at four young French boys all happily plying there trade, with time on there side they will not be in a major hurry to leave IMO.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 19:11:54
If Duverne came in and no first teamers left that would be a sensational window!

4.) 31 Aug 2017 19:50:27
Is duverne still a possibility?

{Ed007's Note - It doesn't look like it mate.}



03 Jul 2017 19:40:53
Southampton target Armstrong? Seriously hope not. ☘️.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 20:24:25
Theyve said vvd is not for sale and we should tell them the same we can't keep selling our best players.

2.) 03 Jul 2017 21:49:09
. and we definitely need to stop selling our players to a minion backwater club like Southampton. The only way they will see European action is on a clear day looking across the English Channel.

3.) 03 Jul 2017 22:16:14
They were in Europe last season WC.

4.) 03 Jul 2017 22:23:14
Wiltshire celt Southampton were in European action last season ya maniac! 😂😂😂 And I would hardly call them a backwater club, they've done well the past few years down there! Still confident Armstrong will sign a new deal soon, no need to panick! He's happy where he is with a manager who has taken his game to a new level!

5.) 04 Jul 2017 09:08:07
If Armstrong is as happy as some people suggest then please tell us why he hasn't signed a new contract yet? I'm pretty sure he'll have an agent to do his negotiations for him so I don't buy in to the focusing on matches just now talk. allhe has to do is turn up and sign once a deal is in place unless he fancies a crack elsewhere and he isn't going to sign an extension. I think Celtic should set a date to say sign or be sold as we can't afford players to leave for nothing.

6.) 04 Jul 2017 09:47:14
Maybe it just boils down to trust lads, Armstrong trusts the gaffer and vice versa that itll get sorted.

7.) 04 Jul 2017 11:28:53
I agree Jim If he's happy then sign, but u know it's never as simple as that mate. these things can drag on, and maybe it's the agent that's playing hard ball! The agents obviously seen the season he's just had and thought there's a better deal to be had. but your point about setting a date for him to sign is spot on. if he's no intention of signing before the transfer window shuts then we sell him and move on! He can't be allowed to get to January we're he's free to talk to other clubs and we possibly lose him for buttons!

8.) 04 Jul 2017 20:00:00
My point is that between 1984 and last year Southampton qualified for Europe once. They are as much as a backwater club as Sevco and I simply don't like the idea of selling on our players on to diddy teams.

9.) 05 Jul 2017 22:39:40
Armstrong has messed around long enough, ungrateful brat, if it hadn't been for the improvement made in him by Brendan Rodgers his agent would be talking to Championship teams or lower . Time to sign or leave the club.



21 May 2017 16:44:43
Ed-in your opinion is signing wee Paddy a possibility or a pipe dream? ☘️.


{Ed007's Note - It's definitely a possibility.}

1.) 21 May 2017 17:54:26
I would be absolutely delighted if we could. I heard his interview today on the radio on my way home and the interviewer asked him three times if he was staying. He answered "Who knows in football". He went on to thank the fans and sounded like he was choking a little. I took it as a farewell sort of thank you, but maybe the kid was just emotional at what he and his teammates had just achieved.

2.) 21 May 2017 21:03:04
I would like to thank the EDs for all their work on this site love it. We will b very lucky to get Paddy Roberts back he has been quality on and off the park for such a young man he sounds as if he loves it here he just loves playing football I just hope that he finds that here again next year HH.

{Ed007's Note - Thank you, Rich, you're very welcome.}

3.) 22 May 2017 09:59:54
Paddy would be our best signing from the king absolute class.

4.) 22 May 2017 18:39:54
Absolute must of a signing n be it 6_8 million he is well worth it n his value will only soar. Paddy Sinclair n Rogic/ armstrong in that attack 3 is just dynamite n the longer the chosen 3 (depends where Brendan plays Armstrong n rogics fitness but Armstrong is a first team pick be it in that 3 or as partner to Broony)
, The longer the play together they will just become deadlier n deadlier, always improving, always learning.
Brendan certainly won't be slacking or letting anyone else slack, trebles could be a regular thing the way our team is steam rollering every other team n we will just continue to improve n add more quality. Sure we may well sell a few here n there but we will bring in the same or similar type quality, certainly since pl let go of managerial duties Brendan has been allowed to bring in two top players in moussa n scotty, Gambia has been decent, kolos experience n form helped early on but i think he's been a good influence in the dressing room. Devries, not the best signing, however I'm sure that position will get another look as i feel we need better.
However fantastic first season for Brendan, he has done an outstanding job in all facets of the club n i can't wait to be celebrating that treble, as always with Celtic we win trophies and do our talking on the park.
Here we go 10 in a row.

I'm sticking to my guns Ed. If we'd have had a goalkeeper in Seville rather than a brickie we'd have won the cup. Last night if my uncle Craig had been fit he might have got a hand to first goal albeit not a centre half attacked the ball because we don't have ONE! Second goal my uncle Craig would have saved. Third goal would probably never have happened plus you could see the back line had absolutely no faith in Rodgers replacement for my uncle Craig. Bottom line Doris isn't good enough and buck stops with Brendan who thought he was. Andrews, Muggleton, McNight and add to their name now bold Doris de Vries.


1.) 23 Feb 2018 18:46:13
Bit harsh on big rab, the bricklayer had some excellent performances on way to Seville. If big Hartson was fit we would have one the cup. The big man was on fire that year!

2.) 23 Feb 2018 19:04:25
Aye big Rab the Crab ha ha - The brickie that couldnae 'hod' a baw.
Better than Dorus the the bricker though.

3.) 23 Feb 2018 21:52:04
If it wasn't for big rab during the run to Seville we would have been out earlier. Put in some great performances in the tournament.
Agree Dasa if big Hartson wasn't injured we would have won it.



22 Feb 2018 20:45:04
To Ed and all other fellow TIMS. If the much maligned Craig Gordon had played (1) even although the centre halfs we don't have are primarily to blame Gordon might have got to it (2) second goal would never have happened. Brendan's bawz the baw didn't move HIS keeper is a prize fud and (3) the third goal well Zenit might never have got there. Brendan's interview was an absolute embarrassment. It's always somebody else's fault. Your keeper Brendan and your first choice after Gordon would have got embarrassed in Airdrie public park. We've played with a goalkeeper who narrowly saved his career for how many years knowing this day could come and it did tonight. C'mon Brendan have the bawz to admit the responsibility for tonights result first and foremost lies with YOU! ☘️.


{Ed007's Note - So if Gordon had played it would have been 0-0 and we'd have went through? That's bollocks, the whole team were garbage, and to say Gordon might have done this or done that is immaterial and has no basis in reality.
If your aunty had balls and all that....}

1.) 22 Feb 2018 20:55:30
Cmon Ed I’ve been watching Celtic for half a century and Doris is the worst goalkeeper I’ve seen. And he Brendan’s.

{Ed007's Note - And Gordon's not much better. I'd have the likes of Ian Andrews and Carl Muggleton as worse 'keepers considering they were our first choice and what about Allen McKnight?}

2.) 22 Feb 2018 20:58:58
After last couple of games starting to think we could blow the league unless the players give themselves a shake and start to actually turn up for games.

{Ed007's Note -


3.) 22 Feb 2018 21:00:32
Jfp love u pal but that’s shite btw. We were shite tonight but I’m not going to criticise to me it’s a mentality thing we know we’re pinching above our weight and don’t know how to handle that. I take solace in the fact that we’re such a young team and hope that going forward we can build on this. Let’s not be naive we’ve just played one of the favourites for this comp and on 1st leg played them off the park. Now we can get back to bread n butter beat the sheep and then Morton grab the treble and see what next season brings. Faithful through n through 🍀.

4.) 22 Feb 2018 21:05:25
The whole backline with the exception of Tierney could easily be replaced. I don't believe for a second Rodgers believes boyata, siminovic, svitchenko, gamboa, lustig, Gordon and de Vries are good enough. Our defence has been screaming out to be sorted from the beginning of this season if not before. The defending is a joke, totally embarrassing in Europe and yet we'd rather spend descent money on midfielders and strikers than sorting it out. It's pathetic.

5.) 22 Feb 2018 21:20:12
Welsboy I agree we’re punching above our weight but Doris should NEVER play in goal for Celtic again! PS: love you too xxx.

6.) 22 Feb 2018 21:22:27
50 yrs watching Celtic and you say Doris is the worst fk me oh and cheers ed I’d removed Allen McKnight from my memory 😬.

{Ed007's Note - :-D

7.) 22 Feb 2018 21:27:11
I meant to say he’s nearly the worst I’ve seen and that was the two names I had in mind. But you can’t argue Doris is pish and was dropped after first game(s) in favour of Gordon. Larsson can play with the ball at his feet put him in goal.

8.) 22 Feb 2018 21:30:09
Welsbhoy my posts weren’t published where I stated that Doris was nearly the worst I’ve seen but McKinightmare and Muggleton were his two leading contenders! 😂👍☘️.

{Ed007's Note - All the posts I've had have been put up mate.}

9.) 22 Feb 2018 21:45:13
Hate to be the bean counter here but he actually put THREE up pmsl 😂

And Stewart Kerr was not far off them 👍.

10.) 22 Feb 2018 21:50:41
Thanks Ed. Think we’re all just a tad disappointed. Goodnight and God Bless Ed and troops. jfp.

{Ed007's Note - Night mate, God bless.}

11.) 23 Feb 2018 00:41:28
Welshy u hit the nail on the head there, a know u meant punching, but we're pinching, penny pinching. Spend a bit on a gk and rb n we might have a chance.

{Ed007's Note - GK must be our main priority in the summer. I'd free Gordon and De Vries, buy Ward or Sondre Rossbach from Odd and sign Bain on a free as our No.2.
I do think Bain will be signed but hopefully not as our No.1.}



21 Feb 2018 18:27:08
Big ask tomorrow night for the Hoops but we're there and 1-0 up. Looks some stadium with roof closed and also looked feckn Baltic! Didn't know if it was St. Petersburg or Shotts which my auld Da God rest him said was the only place in Scotland you could throw snaw bawz at the Orange Walk! I'd rather be 1 up than 1 down though. Seen that pass from Musonda and the finish from McGreggor again which were world class! c'mon the Hoops and in about these Ruskies! ☘️.


1.) 21 Feb 2018 19:16:23
That pass was science fiction man, physics looking the other way for that one!



16 Feb 2018 10:13:21
Well done Charly and the Bhoys. Fantastic performance all round. Not a failure in the team so little point in singling anybody out but as I've said before Brown has earned the right to be considered one of Celtic's great captains. Florist immense. Ncham gets better every time I see him. A pass never to forget from Musonda and what a finish from McGreggor having taken it on his chest first. A night to be truly proud.

On a negative note I thought the referee was horrendous gave us nothing and no protection and thought they were dirty not hard and did some feckn rolling about. ☘️

Well done to Celtic and Brendan Rodgers.


1.) 16 Feb 2018 14:07:21
JFP: bang on mate, and THAT REF what game was he watching. shocking decisions at times.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 19:13:59
Masonic refs get everywhere! 😂🤣😂.



05 Feb 2018 18:36:48
Steve Clarke has more chance of being the next Celtic manager with Lennon the Lurgan Hunskeler at his side than them becoming the next Scotland manager and assistant respectively. Not overly concerned to be honest but think EBT WATTIE is a step backwards. I also think the Huns missed a trick not going for Tommy Wright rather than Dougal out of Father Ted. ☘️.

Did we ever get to the bottom of whether Paddy didn't sign because he didn't want to or because Man City wouldn't let him go? ☘️.

Jackson Irvine, Tam Rogic and Skippy are not bad examples of what we could pick up from the Ozzie league.
