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.}

Is dembele definitely out for tonight?




20 Jul 2017 16:19:44
Another 3 charges from UEFA.


1.) 20 Jul 2017 16:43:48
2 of these weren't fan related. One was for the warm up bibs being against regulations and stairways blocked.

2.) 20 Jul 2017 16:51:45
i think the banners taking away attention from the song book. which i suspected us to get done for.

3.) 20 Jul 2017 17:12:01
UEFA fine you for leaving a skid mark on your toilet yet the SFA can let someone away with blantent cheating through financial doping for over a decade?

4.) 20 Jul 2017 17:45:03
As the banner said a few years ago F. UEFA, just another corrupt organisation like their big brother FIFA.

5.) 20 Jul 2017 18:25:34
What did the banner say?

6.) 20 Jul 2017 18:54:40
It didn't say anything, but it spoke volumes.

7.) 20 Jul 2017 21:01:15
Undefeated army.

8.) 21 Jul 2017 01:51:35
Down with this sort of thing :)

{Ed007's Note - What's done is done, time to move on from this and leave the past behind. The game was won on the pitch, did the banner make our players run faster, we'd have won without the banner.... STATE AID!!!!!! VATICAN JESUIT OPUS DEI YNWA!! BONFIRE!!}

9.) 21 Jul 2017 10:58:52
If only the ones putting up the banners would move on,



15 Jul 2017 12:12:17
Gamboa has torn a muscle playing for national team.




12 Jul 2017 18:44:23
GMS away to the dons.


1.) 12 Jul 2017 19:08:46
Hope the clearout continues Kev. Time to get rid of all squad players if possible.

2.) 12 Jul 2017 19:49:06
Time to get rid of all squad players ? What and just keep 11 players?

3.) 12 Jul 2017 22:08:58
I clearly meant get rid of the players who are not good enough. BR wants quality over quantity a group of players all capable of starting. What use is keeping players who aren't even good enough to make the bench most weeks. squad players. Get rid of them.

Who was everyone's man of the match?
Mines was James Forrest.
Played really well and was kicked all over the park but never hide.
Got his well deserved goal.


{Ed007's Note - Forrest had a great game but I'd give my MOTM to Ntcham just in front of Bitton, I thought he was immense in the middle of the park.}

1.) 16 Aug 2017 22:14:23
between ntcham and griff for me lads, that transfer fee for the bhoy is starting to look like peanuts.

2.) 16 Aug 2017 22:19:46
I'm with you here Ed i thought the bhoy did fantastic, passing was immense tonight, his movement about the middle of the park was top class, £4.5mil is starting to look like money well spent.

{Ed007's Note - So if Armstrong signs his new deal as is rumoured does he only come into the team when it's a midfield 3 with Brown and Ntcham or does he start in the 2 with Brown? Good options to have considering the change in the whole system we can easily switch to.}

3.) 16 Aug 2017 22:19:56
Ntcham was outstanding tonight, great passing and looked really composed for such a young boy.

4.) 16 Aug 2017 22:26:06
Just shows you how good we were tonight when we can't agree on a MOTM eh ed.
Biton must be in with a shout tae.

{Ed007's Note - Hard to pick out a criticism of any player - Gordon's distribution, there :-D

5.) 16 Aug 2017 22:27:19
Loving Ntcham, solid, skillful and calm on the ball. He's turning out to be another cracking signing.
Well done bhoys, absolutely fabulous!

{Ed007's Note - Dare we say it - Petrovesque......?

6.) 16 Aug 2017 22:39:35
Happily ate my words about Bitton tonight. I thought he looked more comfortable than Jozo. He didn't put a foot wrong. What a great option to have given his passing ability to build from the back.

Said at half time that I thought Ntcham's touch and passing were incredible. That boy looks like a find. He sprayed passes all over the park tonight. The sort of Lambert player who does simple things brilliantly. Very tidy. The team performance was immense though.

7.) 16 Aug 2017 22:40:21
Ntcham for me closely followed by big Jozo thought the 2 of them were different class and strolled through the game.

8.) 16 Aug 2017 22:41:57
I think Armstrong is developing in to a petrov type with the late bursts into the box Ed?

{Ed007's Note - But as Cav says below, Petrov could run a game from midfield and I don't think Armstrong's there yet. I don't see Armstrong sitting deep pulling the strings, he'll learn that as the years go by and hopefully it's at Celtic.}

9.) 16 Aug 2017 22:42:26
Petrov could boss a game and make a pass; for me, Ntcham has a touch that is a cut above. Also, he does this pivot thing, turning around and changing the direction of the team's attack in an instant. Deft little scoops also. Bags of tricks for a Petrov-type player.

10.) 16 Aug 2017 22:43:04
See a wee blue nose has sneaked on to hit the disagree button. Must be hurting 😂😂.

11.) 16 Aug 2017 22:59:32
Agree with all that cav the way ntcham does that pivot turn and makes space for himself shows he's got it means he can then dictate where he wants the ball to go instead of rushing.

12.) 17 Aug 2017 00:00:06
Griffiths was MOTM. Great link up and lead the line superbly.

13.) 17 Aug 2017 00:50:27
Ntcham, griffiths, forest, Sinclair then bitton in that order.

Great to see sinkys confidence go sky high after his goals.

LG led the line extremely well tonight.

Bring on a couple of quality signings starting with paddy. Bhoy.

14.) 16 Aug 2017 22:42:00
Has to be the Israeli Baresi.



14 Aug 2017 16:01:04
Was thinking that maybe was a mistake letting Christie go on loan before the qualifiers were done. He can play upfront.
But then they say hind sight is the best sight eh.


1.) 14 Aug 2017 17:08:12
Hope he has a future at Celtic always liked him.

2.) 14 Aug 2017 17:21:55
Is he away all season or could we recall him in January?

3.) 14 Aug 2017 17:45:02
I'm 50/ 50 on the Christie situation. On one hand he's probably our 2nd best winger and could be solving some problems for us but on the other hand he's going to play a lot of games this season which could benefit us for many future seasons. I'm looking forward to seeing him in the hoops next year and hope he bangs them in for Aberdeen!

4.) 14 Aug 2017 18:24:46
Dont think he's a winger sos he's more a no 10 mate.

5.) 14 Aug 2017 19:28:56
He's not a winger sos.

6.) 14 Aug 2017 20:21:37
thought he was but where else is he going to play for us? It's the wing or filling in up front, we would have to sell 2 players before he gets a look in at the no10 role. where does he play for every one else?



11 Aug 2017 21:41:38
Not sure the slight changes in the midfield is working.
Sinclaire isn't playing wide enough this season and I think it's nullifying his best attributes. Going a at defender one on one.
It's also breaking up his partnership with Tierney.




11 Aug 2017 08:25:47
3 million for Armstrong? Tell them to do one cheeky b*****ds. I'd rather let him run down his contract that let any team get away with that.


1.) 11 Aug 2017 09:33:36
They can double that and let him get on his way! 6 million for a player in the last year of his contract would be good business! Said it a few times, the lads heads just not in it at the moment! Get as much as we can for him and reinvest it in a winger/ striker! He's obviously got no intention of signing a new deal so we move on! The sooner the better because I'm sick of hearing it now!

2.) 11 Aug 2017 09:47:18
think he wants two yrs but club want three, give him his two yrs and punt him in jan.

3.) 11 Aug 2017 10:00:29
Offer him the deal he wants rather than lose him. If that wasn't to work. I'm with Lh just sell him and reinvest in an attacker.

4.) 11 Aug 2017 10:14:12
He obviously doesn't want to sign lads so like I said on your way son! Bigger and better have left before him. squeeze as much money out of one of the also rans in the promised land and put this to bed!

5.) 11 Aug 2017 10:29:58
@Lh86 I don't buy into this talk about his head not in it. He's played in 5 games and scored 2 goals which is good for a midfielder. Personally I want him to sign an extension as he looks more dangerous when playing than most of our centre mids that said if he doesn't want to commit after Astana away match take 3-5 million and please celtic reinvest in a player not a potential player.

6.) 11 Aug 2017 10:51:07
Jim his body language has been off since the start of the season, I think it's actually quite plain to see mate! And I think we'd all have loved him to sign an extension mate, and he's our best goal scoring midfielder no doubt! But he's had plenty of time to sign a deal and the time has come to move on! Like I said before we've lost bigger and better than him in the past! Just want it put to bed now and concentrate on the players who actually want to be there.

7.) 11 Aug 2017 11:30:32
I still think he might sign. But if we are only getting 3 million for him I'd keep him till end of season.
Worth more on the pitch than that crappy figure.

8.) 11 Aug 2017 11:37:45
Itll only be 3mill if the club are daft enough to accept that there's bang average players down south going for 3 and 4 times that. Just get the market value for an international and cl experienced player and if not then anno itll hit us in pocket but run down his contract and get the best out him.

9.) 11 Aug 2017 12:00:06
Swap him for forester.

10.) 11 Aug 2017 12:03:51
I think you're being disrespectful suggesting his body language is off as he in my opinion gives 100% and looked happy when he scored in midweek and disappointed when keeper pulled off a good save to deny him. I'm not arguing the point about selling him if he doesn't want to extend his contract but i don't doubt he'd give full effort at least till Christmas if need be.

11.) 11 Aug 2017 12:09:51
Will we get the best out him but that's the question! I'm not sayin just accept the first offer that comes but for me anything 5 million up I would take! I don't want a player in the team who isn't committed to the club! What does that say to the other guys in the dressing room who've committed to the club!

12.) 11 Aug 2017 12:18:05
Andre Gray went from Burnley to Watford for 18 million and he had only one year left on his contract. On top of that he's rank rotten. Three million is a joke.

13.) 11 Aug 2017 12:22:52
It's down to Rodgers and the player and the club really. I can only hope that we will just offer him what he wants. They'll know together when he wants to leave. If it's now, or next season, then sell him now. If he wants a two year extension then I'm confident he would give his all for that duration. And I think we can all live with players having their own ambitions. Give him the two year extension, get two seasons out of him, and sell him with a year left (providing acceptable bids don't come in before that) . He seems like a sensible chap, if he's after a move in the down the line, he'll know the best way to do that will by to continue trying to improve and by performing well.

14.) 11 Aug 2017 12:25:32
Nothing to with being disrespectful Jim1972! I'm giving my opinion, and I feel the Armstrong from the end of last season and the one at the start of this look different players! I'm not questioning the boys commitment on the park, that couldn't be further from the truth! I'm questioning we're his heads at and if he sees his future with us? If not then see you later!

15.) 11 Aug 2017 15:06:36
If he's wanting a move he shouldn't be playing. Even for his own sake incase he gets injured, the last thing we want is an unhappy player in the dressing room. Sign what's on offer or see ya.

16.) 11 Aug 2017 16:26:12
Fair do Lh86 I see it differently and I'm more of the opinion that he's being made to look like the bad guy. The ed and others suggested the problem was the contract length that was the issue, if this is the case then more fool the club and they are forcing an issue over 1 year which to me as a fan is ludicrous. This whole thing should have been nailed down in the summer and start with a new improved contract or sold with a suitable replacement brought in. On a side note does anyone know if the green brigade are coming back soon or still waiting on a resolution?

17.) 11 Aug 2017 17:33:11
rodgers said at the press conference the other day that celtic and armstrong weren't far away from agreeing a new deal.

18.) 11 Aug 2017 18:09:01
Jim Jim if Celtic agreed to give every player who had 6 good months everything they wanted we might have no more Celtic.

19.) 11 Aug 2017 19:54:33
Calm down old yin I'm talking about the difference between a 2 year extension and a 3 year extension try keeping up. ps it's only for certain individuals the manager wants to keep also.

20.) 11 Aug 2017 23:32:34
Well Jim I think I've been vindicated in my comments about Armstrong after what Brendan had to say about it after the game! The contract situation is affecting his game, he was great last season and since this has happened his heads not been right! Doesn't give me any pleasure to be right by the way! Think this finally tells us he's for the off.

21.) 12 Aug 2017 08:30:28
I think it also shows Brendan has been talking a lot of bull the last 4 months about the boy wanting to stay and being close to agreeing. I would prefer Brendan took a firmer stance in June to stop this situation developing days before our biggest match as I've no doubt it will be a big play in the media.

22.) 12 Aug 2017 22:08:34
Jim, I regard the idle speculation on here with the light hearted amusement that it is posted as, good for fun, but not meant to be accurate .
We have no idea what separates Armstrong from the offer Celtic have made . B R has to maintain that both sides are not far apart as long as there is any hope he is going to sign .
Unless he doesn't want him to sign and then he can talk down the possibility.



09 Aug 2017 17:13:43
Bad news about kayal hopefully he makes a speedy recovery.


1.) 09 Aug 2017 18:13:10
i had him in my fantasy team just had to make a transfer : (.

Like him as a player but don't see where he'd fit in our team.
