I don’t know what anyone else feels here, but right now I am totally sick of the board at Celtic. I have never came out and slagged Lawwell and co, but has Lawwell's ego actually got to the point where Celtic would be better getting rid of him?

We are a weaker side than last year, and the team has required defenders, and just a general freshen up for a couple of seasons.
The happenings at the club currently is sickening, we have a good manager who has turned the club around, but a chief executive who wants to weaken us from a position of strength.
Am I being a drama queen, or does anyone else have concerns?


1.) 21 Aug 2018 15:47:02
If we don't strengthen between now and end of August, the club will have given up all hope of pushing on and improving. The defence needs strengthening. My concern has always been we have John Kennedy and Chris Davies as coaches, both of whom never cut it at highest level and I am not convinced they even know what needs to be improved. As for Lee Congerton, now is his opportunity to prove doubters wrong. Will he step up?

The board are devoid of real ambition and this year that has been shown it all its brilliant colours. Lawells ego is a problem, all the rubbish about his duel with Petrie cost us McGinn. His dithering cheapskate mindset has cost us £65m. If I had the power I would sack him.

3.) 21 Aug 2018 16:29:51
Couldn’t of said it better just said something similar on here but we’ve still got the fans that think we’re going to stroll it have to laugh or i'd greet, not got a clue.

4.) 21 Aug 2018 18:44:49
Board sanctioned the bringing of 5 players last January . A team that only lost 2 bit-part players this window shouldn't need many new signings especially as we are double treble winners.

5.) 21 Aug 2018 19:42:55
I think we needed defenders though. And is that a respectable way to talk about two players who contributed to our success these last few years? I know your sensitive when others slag players. Isn’t that you being a hypocrite? I would say so.

6.) 21 Aug 2018 19:45:31
I think, although we are off the back of a double treble season - following on from the once in a lifetime, 'Invincible' term, some of us are worried that we fail to keep improving from a position of strength; as has happened to previous Celtic teams over the decades.
There is no doubt that we still have some great quality and talent, but the manager has said himself that we are 'light' in certain areas and there is room for improvement going by recent performances.

7.) 21 Aug 2018 19:50:28
Old man Chris with some of your comments on here in recent weeks I'm starting to think you either love a good troll or you are a person in disguise!

8.) 21 Aug 2018 20:30:03
To be honest I posted something similar this time last season and was met with "we'll still win the league by 30 points haw haw" . The other teams in the spl are continuing to strengthen and we aren't. The addition of eddy permanently is a cracking bit of business but not enough to push us forward and improve. We've lost Armstrong and Roberts, 2 players that can make something from nothing and they haven't been replaced. If I had a say in it I would make sure Boyata never stepped foot at paradise again and I would replace him, always thought he was a bomb scare anyways.

9.) 21 Aug 2018 21:19:15
I rarely if ever agree with OMC but his post above is spot on.

10.) 21 Aug 2018 23:49:07
Yeah we are standing still. going backwards while others are getting stronger. With the money we earned we should've got a few class players in and none of this would be up for debate. Now we've crashed out of CL and lost to Hearts it seems the panic has set in a little. It's hard to judge right now as we've been unlucky woth injuries. Once OE and MD are back playing together we'll see the shape take form that was worked on from pre season. Still think we need to sort out our defence and add/ replace key areas or it could be a long uncomfortable season.

11.) 22 Aug 2018 14:29:26
I’ve accepted the board have no ambition, and that we might not win the league, there’s nothing us fans can do though, Lawwells not going anywhere, it’s a case of like it or lump it, as for McKenna, not worth the fee, and underwhelming, but what else would you expect, as for Lee Congerton, he’s a bigger wage thief than Compper.

12.) 22 Aug 2018 18:34:29
I think the problem we have as only cane to a head with management and board fairly recently . min January 5 players came in, M two were centre backs, I wonder when or even if the manager realised we had a problem at centre back . Was B R happy with his centre defence until Boyata said he was for the road . This could explain why we seem to be so far behind in getting a new defender . Brendan may have thought that Boyata and Jozo or Boyata and Ajer would be his pairing with Hendry learning his way as stand-by .
The above would appear to give us good cover and us a good defence, but Boyata spoiled that and at the pre AEK first match B R seemed not his usual pleasant self . Boyata shook him.



18 Jul 2018 00:55:12
Good to see the ex assistant coach of Belgium, urging Boyata to stay at Celtic.

Watched an interview earlier with our new loan signing, why do we always insist on saying how big a club we are, surely to god that just sounds like a wee club trying to be a big club, really annoys me.


1.) 01 Feb 2019 23:00:03
Agree. It's cringe worthy putting words into their mouth.

Should hire wee Si Ferry to do our interviews.

Much more natural to listen to.

2.) 01 Feb 2019 23:23:04
What really annoys me is when a new club claims to be an old club😂😂.

3.) 02 Feb 2019 05:18:32
Malky Bhoy hahaha spot on haha.

4.) 02 Feb 2019 10:05:20
Cringeworthy is claiming to be "going for 55" and claiming "to be the most successful club in the world" after winning the 1st, 2nd, 3rd division and the chips and curry cup in 6 years and then claiming "to be back" 😂😂😂😂.

5.) 02 Feb 2019 10:07:57
Not forgetting claiming to have rejected bogus 8, 9, 10, 11 and £12m bids for a coo you couldn't punt to a slaughter hoose all in a sad attempt at pretending to be a big club😂😂😂😂.

6.) 03 Feb 2019 14:33:18
I agree, if we’re telling him to say it, it’s embarrassing. However, it might be genuine because Celtic are seen as a huge club in Germany. I was in Teplice for a UEFA Cup game years ago and I got a ticket for a section of the ground that was almost all Germans. There must’ve been about 1500 in that section and they weren’t all St Pauli fans, there were fans from loads of different clubs including hundreds of Borrussia Dortmund fans.



04 Aug 2018 20:35:14
Not happy, 2nd in the league is no good, sack the board, sack Rodgers, we should be top 🙈🙈🙈😁😁😁.


1.) 04 Aug 2018 23:48:31
No looked at a league table in years and don’t see any reason look for a few years more 😏.

2.) 04 Aug 2018 23:41:03
Timplosion, folding like pack of cards. Second no sorry scrub that third season meltdown.



20 Apr 2018 22:22:34
Has no one got any tips for the Scottish national?


1.) 20 Apr 2018 23:02:08
I reckon itl be a horse that wins.

2.) 20 Apr 2018 23:03:05
@Jaj73, The Young Master as long as Timalloys no backing it😁.

3.) 20 Apr 2018 23:47:18
Yeah save your money and don`t bet. lol.

4.) 21 Apr 2018 01:10:41
yes peter, I agree. No point in trying to pick a lottery number from the advice of others HH.

5.) 21 Apr 2018 06:35:46
Becareful there are some coo's pretending to be horses😉.

6.) 21 Apr 2018 08:27:50
Defo best keeping my money in my pocket when it comes to gamble 👍 I fancied young master myself, and a wee big outsider Alzamaar, which is probably why I get beaten all the time 👍.

I think Brown should be allowed to mull over his contract, as I’m sure all will agree he has earned the right to do so.


{Ed007's Note - Brown probably doesn't know himself what he's doing at this stage, it's a huge decision for him and his family.
If - and I mean IF as it's just speculation - there was going to be any change in Brown's squad status (maybe not guaranteed to start etc) the footballing department (Rodgers) will have informed Peter Lawwell (and I'd imagine Rodgers would also have spoken to Brown himself to layout how he sees Brown's place in the squad as he winds down his playing career whilst keeping the team at the top) and then Peter Lawwell will put an offer on the table.

All we are linked with is a couple of short term loans, of players that will probably cut the loan deal short because they’re not getting a game.
Looking at it just now, we have a board only interested in big bonuses, and a manager (who’s not entirely blameless) throwing his toys out the pram.
We should be miles ahead of where we are now, and anyone who doesn’t think Defoe will make a difference, have to widen up. It’s a big month ahead for for Rodgers and Lawell.

If the story is true, you would really need to know who the players are, and what sort of money that’s required to buy them. I believe that we do penny pinch, but also think we have far too many players picking up a decent wage, and never playing, so new players must be 1st team picks, and not more squad players or prospects.


{Ed007's Note - Just ignore it, the story simply isn't true and thankfully not many posters on here take a pile of $hite on their morning cereal.}

Need to disagree mally, also don’t think we shoukd play the 2 youngsters Ajer and Hendry together either.

I personally don’t think Hendry is good enough for Celtic, maybe he will improve, but at this point in time I think he slows play down, and gets caught out regularly.

Listen we’ve watched some pish Games this year from the previous manager, who never won at Easter rd, and don’t forget his team selection at new year.

I’m assuming that’s a dig at me there donjim, no one comes out of this in a good light, watch our turnover reduce, we don’t have many big players left to sell, and the supporters accepting mediocrity, but that’s ok, we have £50m in the bank everything is fine the bonuses can be paid.

The saddest thing about this, on a par anyway, is the fact the board are getting away with thier running of the club, if Rodgers wasn’t such an egotistical @tsehole, he could have walked in the summer with all our supporters blessings, blaming the board, but instead the fake tan and false teeth rat takes the blame.

So is that lawell on track for another £1m bonus this year again. We will fall even further behind the European team by not investing in the actual football team, the talk of hotels and and I personally would prefer a quality football team than £40m in the bank.

Happy I agree with you, I don’t get the outrage of opposition songs or chants, we could argue the classic Christmas song by shaky, with **** the Huns at the end contains a sweary word.
