Lawwel at big table after being appointed to the ECA board.


1.) 05 Sep 2017 18:24:32
Lovin the avatar Kev!

2.) 05 Sep 2017 21:29:00
Cheers Viking. Used one of they stupid apps on facebook to take it.

3.) 06 Sep 2017 08:45:13
They have appointed him to pass on his skills off not spending any money, as they worry about out of control transfer fees.

Lawell, known for his ability to peel an orange whilst it's still in his pocket, is legendary among Celtic fans, as only interested in his own bonus and inability to break a £20 when it comes to spending CL money.

In a statement today Lawell showed his intent by banning cakes and biscuits at meetings.

"I didn't get to where I am today by spending money mate. No, you need to keep it. Let it build up, whilst your team goes backward. That's my way, and if you don't like it you can Feck off. "

More later.

4.) 06 Sep 2017 18:27:27
I think this can only benefit Celtic as we have a voice at the big table in Europe
Well Done Peter.

5.) 06 Sep 2017 21:37:13
Wouldn't swap him for any other chairman in world football.

6.) 07 Sep 2017 00:59:56
Can't understand why he's getting grief right now. We're getting stronger all the time, away n geez peace.

7.) 07 Sep 2017 08:23:27
Just like fergus imo, we won't know what we had until its not there.

8.) 07 Sep 2017 10:03:52
Bhoywonder I was there the day he was booed. People were arguing all round me.
The wee man was proved right and the law man will be to. We are I our most powerful position in a long time and just won a treble.

9.) 07 Sep 2017 10:36:18
he isn't the chairman, he's the ceo and he's held us back for years, while paying himself a million a year, he's a leech.

10.) 07 Sep 2017 11:22:09
Lawwell is top notch at the business side of things. Any investor could see that Crikey a said to everyone on here the pattern emerging that even under Lennon the share jumps at CL football and it happened so like me a hope you all filled your boots (Y)

Under RD he got involved too much and short changed us in RD's appointment and then when it was backfiring he called us all "delusional" which was nearly has undoing in my opinion so it had to be made right and we got someone in BR's standing

Him being at the top table won't do us any harm. I have heard he is only two years in him he feels whether or not that counts this season I don't know. He will be difficult to replace (Y)

11.) 07 Sep 2017 16:21:14
To say he has held us back for years is nonsense
Our club is stronger than it's ever been on the business side and continues to grow.
Sponsorship at all time high
Outside our stadium is becoming a jewel in our crown.

12.) 07 Sep 2017 17:02:41
Peter lawwell is an easy target, he's obviously good at what he does. Would you rather he spent like David Murray did? We can all see how that panned out, so to say he's held us back is ridiculous and I fear the day he leaves.

13.) 07 Sep 2017 17:03:38
Thing is, we should have been at this point much, much sooner!

14.) 07 Sep 2017 18:30:37
Who is disagreeing with with these posts? Sad sad people.

15.) 07 Sep 2017 22:50:55
Chasa a do agree we could and should have been here sooner but he's got us here now and it doesn't look like we're slowing down anytime soon. If we come out of each window stronger a don't think we can complain too much. Progress is progress.

16.) 07 Sep 2017 23:52:14
whats outside the park got to do with anything its on the park im interested in, i must be the only one on here who has seen mostly dross cheap option signings over the last few years and the appointment of a manager who now has took valerenga into the relegation zone and whos tactics emptied our stadium, they only appointed rodgers to fill the stadium again and when the guy wanted to strengthen at centre half he was offered an unknown 800k player who failed a medical, what's the use of having money if they don't spend it?

17.) 08 Sep 2017 06:57:56
A lot of signings didn't work out in the past when lawell was involved signing players but if he sticks to what he's good at there's few better out there, look at the players his relationship wae city has got us, Roberts, denayer, guidetti hardly dross. We're cleaning up wae sponsors, pre season tournaments etc. If he leaves the best manager we've had since O'Neil to sign players wae the help of his top class backroom team then we'll do just fine.

18.) 08 Sep 2017 12:20:46
I find it amusing that most Celtic fans continually claim to be frustrated at how we handle transfer windows and getting in please players early.

This year we went into the qualifiers with a makeshift defence. A defence that even if we didn't have injuries still needed beefing up. We also played a game with no striker.

How can anyone defend that? Lawell is the man. He gets paid to make things happen when we need them to happen.

We still only have one CB for Tuesday. This is down to the CEO and Brendan.

They were the ones who raised the expectation bar. When they don't hit it don't blame people for pointing that out.

We are not talking about spending like Rangers blah feckin blah. That's always trotted out as an excuse for not doing anything and avoiding criticism. We all know we need a better defence including FB. Where is it?

Lawells job is to use the additional resources to get better players. Is £800k for a 20 year old ambitious? I thought the boy looked good but, he was a risk even before we found out he was crocked.

Lawell is not above criticism. Or should ever be.

{Ed007's Note - How do we only have one CB for Tuesday? We've got Simunovic, Boyata and Ajer with Lustig and Tierney able to slot in there and Bitton as an emergency, that's 6 right there and Sviatchenko has still to come back.}

19.) 08 Sep 2017 12:44:55
We have one fit main choice, would Ajer or Bitton be considered if Boyata or Shev were fit?

No they wouldn't. Of course we have makeshift options. That's not the issue. The issue is why do we have to rely on makeshift.

We are in the group and haven't added to make it hard for either of the two injured players to return. I don't think either of them are good enough, we don't even have them and that's not good enough.

{Ed007's Note - Boyata is fit though.}

20.) 08 Sep 2017 15:43:13
That's good news. I read today he won't make it,

21.) 09 Sep 2017 00:05:09
i said mostly dross signings balde, bangura, miku, moyakola, brafheid, allen etc.



01 Sep 2017 09:39:34
So going by reports today we agreed to a deal of 8 million for Robert and the bold Pep put a stop to it at the last minute.
I have to wonder why. I can't see him every putting a young guy like Robert's in the team. Plus if he doesn't win anything this year he won't be there next year.


{Ed007's Note - I don't know who's reporting that but that's simply not true.}

1.) 01 Sep 2017 10:05:30
Think that's what paddys hoping for also kev, that pep will be off and he will have another chance, can't begrudge the bhoy.

2.) 01 Sep 2017 10:18:54
Most of the papers have it in today ed.

{Ed007's Note - Well it's still wrong. It looks likePaddy's agent doesn't want it being common knowledge that it was his client that turned down the permanent move, probably in case it affected his popularity with our supporters.}

3.) 01 Sep 2017 10:55:38
I think the fact it's being reported that Celtic tried to get it done is what's making most folk happy Ed. Whether it's actually true or not though is another matter.

{Ed007's Note - I said all along that Celtic wanted to sign Roberts permanently so it's nice that the papers have finally caught up. Better late than never.}

4.) 01 Sep 2017 11:17:48
Do you think we would have went to the £8M mark? I'd like to think so.

{Ed007's Note - Yes I honestly do, Kev. Lawwell and the board knew how the fans would have reacted if we had managed to sign Roberts permanently and there would have been no risk regarding would the player settle and be able to do the job the manager wants. It would have been a win-win for the Club.
And there's no way Celtic would want to pi$$ City off by messing them around, the Club made it crystal clear to City and Roberts even before the season ended that they would be bidding and trying to sign him permanently.}

5.) 01 Sep 2017 11:46:35
Certainly bits of truth about Celtics bid then ed?
Goes against a lot of people idea that the board won't back the manager eh?

{Ed007's Note - Yes there's plenty of truth in it. The people who are saying the board aren't backing the manager or Rodgers will be raging with the board are probably upset that Man City spent more than us.}

6.) 01 Sep 2017 12:27:52
One of the most annoying sayings is break the bank. Does my head in.

7.) 02 Aug 2017 21:59:30
who said break the bank? i call it showing ambition, no one is asking them to overspend and do a sevco, just investment by one of the worlds biggest clubs to let us compete a bit better in the champions league.

8.) 03 Sep 2017 13:59:11
Jb67 to compete in the champions league you have to spend 100s of millions. How can fans not get That?

9.) 04 sep 2017 09:57:52
compete a bit better i said why can you not get that pampers?

Reports Henderson free to leave.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 09:41:11
Very decent young player but we have incredible strength in depth in the middle of the park. I'd like to see him go to Hibs again as he seemed to really enjoy his football there.

2.) 31 Aug 2017 11:08:37
I would loan him out to Hibs for another year then sell him. All the Hibees are praying for this. Would be good for him and us.

{Ed007's Note - Henderson's contract is up next summer so he'll be on a free. }



15 Aug 2017 16:36:56
Any truth we are after the boy fae Holland Ed?


{Ed007's Note - Not that I know of. Espanyol, Watford and Stoke have all shown interest in signing Miquel Nelom and I can't see him being happy coming here to be KT's understudy.}

1.) 15 Aug 2017 17:03:01
Do you think that BR is looking for left back options with the idea of moving KT into the centre?

First time post :)

2.) 15 Aug 2017 18:05:18
Seems he can play CB tae ed.

{Ed007's Note - I know.}

Not Celtic related but does anyone on heard actually kick a baw regularly?
If so have you tried they shin guards that are built into the socks?


{Ed007's Note - I've backheeled my right nut (or was it my left) the other night sitting in bed with my leg tucked under me bit I was wearing fishnets at the time.}

1.) 22 Oct 2017 21:54:28
Oh ED I was waiting to post the video for that and now u let the cat out the bag . I was looking for it to be a best seller lol.

{Ed007's Note - Kicking or clipping your own haw-maws is one of the worst pains in the world, let a woman experience that and they'll soon be back at work after lunch once they've given birth.}

2.) 22 Oct 2017 22:01:38
i hate when u sit full force on one brings tears to a grown man.

{Ed007's Note - A squashed nad or nads should be an acceptable excuse for missing work. That pain in your stomach has got to be worse than any periods cramp or childbirth contraction.}

3.) 22 Oct 2017 22:13:33
Well that's cleared up if the shin guards are any good ed007 cheers😂.

{Ed007's Note - Kev if you're fit enough to be still kicking a ball about you deserve pelters! I've not walked without crutches for 7 years, Timalloy's the oldest person that can use the internet, Welshboy's due to appear on Danny Dyer's UK's Oldest Ultra and Jamie's not managed a hard-on since last Christmas.
My advice - buy a protective box/cup, don't tell the Mrs and tell her it turns you on getting a high heel in the nads, after that she'll help you try out your weird fetish sock things - don't lead with that or she'll think you're a freak.}

4.) 22 Oct 2017 23:13:03
too funny.

5.) 23 Oct 2017 08:39:26
When I worked on the rigs many of the rooms had bunk beds and the top bunks had wee raised side bars to stop you rolling off in your sleep. We called them knacker crackers. I got up to go water the plants once and (I used to sleep commando) being half asleep, and relatively young, I actually leapt out the bed. Caught one of the family jewels and boaby between palm and bar. JEEZO did that hurt. There is me, 2am waking the medic up to check me out. To add to the tale, the medic was as bent as the proverbial nine bob bit (lovely guy and brilliant medic but just that way inclined) Took one look and was all smiles and oohing and ahhhing etc. Anyway, gave me some pills saying, " these will ease the pain and hopefully keep the swelling as I am sure your wife will be happier. "
Naw, its no fun getting the auld man and his two mates crushed.

6.) 22 Oct 2017 23:43:49
Does a semi at today's"semi" count Ed when that Moult lob hits the back of the net? 😂👍🍀.

{Ed007's Note - That was a peach of a goal.}

7.) 23 Oct 2017 11:21:32
Never said I was fit enough. Just turn up now to make up the numbers.

14 Oct 2017 12:09:18
Here ed007 that looks like a right good appointment that Kilmarnock have made eh?
Don't think he's a top manager but for them it a big achievement.


{Ed007's Note - It's a great appointment for them, Kev.}

1.) 14 Oct 2017 12:54:41
About time teams in this league stop gambling on explayer that haven't served their apprenticeship in coaching and management.
It very rarely works out throwing a guy straight fae his playing career into a management job in the top league in any country.
But this appointment shows maybe even the smaller teams in scotland can attract a better quality if they try.

2.) 14 Oct 2017 13:01:58
There was a time I would have wanted Steve Clarke as our manager think it's a really good appointment by killie.

3.) 14 Oct 2017 15:37:16
He was in the running when Ronnie got in gordo.

4.) 14 Oct 2017 16:48:51
Good celtic man whole family celtic mad btw.

5.) 14 Oct 2017 17:49:03
Know him and the family well great guy and a great appointment by Kilmarnock.

6.) 14 Oct 2017 19:53:50
Top bloke, his brother Paul was my manager in the youth ranks at killie. Both really good guys and on the level with players. Too many managers spend their blowing smoke up their player backsides cause they need to be treated like kids just to keep them happy.



12 Oct 2017 11:09:41
Ed007 what's the score with Jozo? We were told he's torn a muscle and would be out a few weeks. Now his international manager saying he didn't play other night because he was ill.


{Ed007's Note - I've not seen that, Kev but I did say at the time everyone had jumped the gun regarding Simunovic's hamstring injury, it was the same with the stories about Lustig getting injured with Sweden because he missed one training session with them.}

1.) 12 Oct 2017 13:54:30
Cheers ed.

{Ed007's Note - Simunovic trained today, Kev but I found that out after I answered you so I posted it up on the rumours page.}



11 Oct 2017 10:11:30
What about young ajer eh?
Needs his shoulder popped back in place, gets it done and then plays on. That's the type of player you want around your squad.


1.) 11 Oct 2017 11:19:14
I wonder why BR isn't playing Ajer in the league at least, think he should be first pick when either of the injury prone Simonuvic and Boyata can't play. Instead of playing Bitton and others out of position, he played in the SPFL for Kilmarnock for a full season and handled it fine.

2.) 11 Oct 2017 11:59:47
I think we as fans can forget how young some of these players are.
I think he might have went on loan again if we had signed another CB and could see him being sent of in January again.

3.) 11 Oct 2017 14:00:03
Kwaj he is also out of position though he's a central midfielder.

4.) 11 Oct 2017 14:11:53
Read that maself Kev, hard as nails if it was dislocated, i remember mine popping out when i was younger, was in tears so i was.

5.) 11 Oct 2017 16:58:48
Gordo87 before he arrived at parkhead he had played several different positions including C. F. C. B. and C. M.

6.) 11 Oct 2017 19:35:11
Think he is more suited to being a centre back rather than a midfielder.

7.) 11 Oct 2017 21:21:16
Aindoh he only converted to CB when he came to Celtic. He played for Norway at 18 as a midfield player. wouldn't mind seeing what he could do in midfield. You never know?

8.) 12 Oct 2017 00:02:15
I remember reading from some of the Norwegian correspondents and Norwegian newspapers that in midfield he was very enthusiastic and physical but was clumsy and not that skillful.



08 Oct 2017 20:32:16
Who would you guys pick for next manager of Scotland?
Be realistic
I would go for Tommy Wright
He's a good manager that can do a decent job with not a lot of resources
His team's try to play good football when they can but shut up shop when it's
He lives and works in Scotland so knows all about the Scottish based players so hopefully wouldn't just give a game to anyone just because they've kicked a ball in England.


{Ed033's Note - Wait a minute, won't Rangers be after Tommy Wright after Christmas? 😄

1.) 08 Oct 2017 20:59:04
Get mark Warburton before engurland swoop for him.

2.) 08 Oct 2017 21:01:35
Jim Duffy or Yogi Hughes.

3.) 08 Oct 2017 21:26:03
Hughes doesn't know how to build a defence.
Ed0033 I can't believe they never went for Tommy Wright before Pedro. Was a no brainer in my eyes.

{Ed033's Note - i think there is speculation (whether correct or not who knows?) that the Rangers board took a gamble that Pedro knew of some cheap decent foreign players that no one in Britain had heard of and those cheap decent foreign players might be able to compete with Celtic.

4.) 08 Oct 2017 22:09:11
ED033 gossip I heard that Pedro talked up his contacts in Dubai, and the sevco board members believed he could persuade these said "investors" to bankroll the club, but only if he was the new manager.

5.) 08 Oct 2017 22:19:58
Ed0033 I heard the reason ( again correct or not is anyone's guess) that the reason they are going for foreign is because they can pay in instalments and most British clubs want paid the full whack upfront before selling to them.

6.) 08 Oct 2017 22:33:43
In the pub watching Scotland game and my mate's friend says there is a strong rumour that SDM is looking to step back in at ibrokes to replace DK. Can't see it myself but has anyone else heard anything?

{Ed007's Note - It's a strong rumour from a raving nutcase!


7.) 09 Oct 2017 07:07:43
There’s definitely something amiss with that person between living in fear of assassination plots,9/ 11 being an Israel cover up and the begging for money he has remarkable similarities to The lying King and we all laugh at them for believing. Sorry Tim.

8.) 09 Oct 2017 07:57:50
Surely not even the sfa and SPFL could pass SDM fit and proper for running a football club again?

9.) 09 Oct 2017 09:11:50
Paul Lambert could be a shout.

10.) 09 Oct 2017 11:17:22
Great shout Tompo.

11.) 09 Oct 2017 13:27:58
Anyone but moyes for me, Lambo is a great shout.

12.) 09 Oct 2017 16:04:47
Kenny Dalglish. He said he wanted the job but had never been approached. I think that is a disgrace.
I sincerely hope Strachan leaves/ is sacked now, because so much about the last two games has be so wrong - his refusal to pick the players in form in the starting eleven, the wrong changes that he made coupled with them being too late in the game and the fact that Philips - who was absolutely dreadful in both games - played the full 180 minutes without making a single, telling contribution.
This was all compounded by the "genetic. too short" stuff. That's just an insult to intelligence.

13.) 09 Oct 2017 21:02:26
Is he not still the international talent scout for old co Rangers?

It's time that Celtic sue people that do this.
They should put it in the terms and conditions that if you invade the pitch and cost the club any money in fines the club will sue to recoupe the money.


{Ed007's Note - Who would you sue to cover the costs of fines Celtic have brought on us themselves or things players do that get us fined? I'm sure that any single Celtic supporter the Club tried to sue would have no problem funding the financial help to fight his case - which he would 100% certainly win.
The Club's own heavy handed approach towards the support by police and stewards has brought us a few fines as well, why are they continuing that without caring about fines from UEFA?
Look through the UEFA disciplinary hearings and you'll see how petty and stupid most of them are, Man Utd received TWELVE notifications on their way to winning the EL last year, that's 12 in one season but you don't see fans or the press whinging about stadium closures and paltry fines. UEFA will only close stadiums for severe trouble or racist behaviour, PSG were also fined 40,000 Euros for pyro at their Bayern Munich game.*
After the recent EL group stage match between FC Koln and FK Crvena zvezda:

Charges against 1. FC Koln:

• Insufficient organisation: lack of searching - Art. 33 of UEFA Safety and Security Regulations
• Throwing of objects - Art. 16 (2) of the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations (DR)
• Stairways blocked - Art. 38 of UEFA Safety and Security Regulations
• Setting off of fireworks - Art. 16 (2) of DR


The CEDB has decided:
- to fine FC Köln 30,000 Euros.
- to warn FC Köln for the insufficient organization.

It's all poncy fines for minor offences that UEFA dish out willy nilly to boost their coffers, unless there's serious violence or a racism problem UEFA don't really care that much, other clubs and fans just see it as part and parcel of being in UEFA competition.

*There were no available reports of any asthma related injuries at the PSG v Bayern game.}

There are definitely signs of a player there. Celtic fans are to quick to judge players, especially young players.
Give this bhoy time and he will grow into a fine player.
