Just heard about Liam miller! Heart for his family! My thoughts go out to them and all who knew him! YNWA ☘️☘️☘️💚.


1.) 09 Feb 2018 23:47:26
Rest in peace Liam Miller. YNWA.

2.) 10 Feb 2018 00:31:39
Rangers fan here and am absolutely shocked by the news tonight 36 years old is far too young RIP LIAM MILLER YNWA.

3.) 10 Feb 2018 09:27:25
God bless you Liam RIP.

4.) 11 Feb 2018 16:34:49
young man taken too soon regardless of team or persuasion.



17 Jan 2018 14:26:38
Compper out for a month with calf injury! Bloody great! See we are being linked with Serbian defender today, u heard anything ED?


{Ed007's Note - I'm not sure the stories of an actual bid for Dusko Tosic are 100% true but it seems we have spoken to Besiktas about him.}

1.) 17 Jan 2018 17:07:38
Guessin he'd be cup tied aswell?

{Ed007's Note - No he would be eligible to play for us.}

2.) 17 Jan 2018 17:48:00
Guy played in 6 CL games and the team made the next round that right Ed?

{Ed007's Note - Yes.}

3.) 17 Jan 2018 18:01:33
Am laughing at the DR this morning they report that from reports coming out of Turkey we bid for Tosnic now they are saying it's been rubbished by Celtic. I am a bit gutted Henderson did not get a good shot thought he had a lot going for him just needed a sustained run in the team now he's joined on a perniment deal good luck to him what your thoughts on him ED.

{Ed007's Note - I don't have any thoughts on Henderson except that he was never good enough for Celtic.}

4.) 17 Jan 2018 19:59:28
No big loss. He is cup tied so it isn't as if he would of got a sniff at the 2nd leg of the zenit game even if he was returning. He's a dourus type of cover signing. Might be wrong but I can't see him being first 11 after the summer window. Could of done with him fit though, we are a bit busy when we come back.

5.) 17 Jan 2018 20:13:36
He got a bit of a chance and never really stepped up. Was a bit like GMS.

{Ed007's Note - That's it, Davie. I watched him with Hibs and he was a better player than he ever showed in a Celtic jersey. He had enough chances to show he could be a regular for us.}

6.) 18 Jan 2018 16:11:47
Yes, but when he was with hibs, he was a regular, that helps a player's confidence, I think if you went around Scotland and England, picking up players that were talented but we're only thought of as squad players at their home club, and you were the right kind of manager, you could probably mould a team that might not win the league but would be able to qualify Europe every year and get past the first two or three rounds.



25 Dec 2017 10:12:24
Happy Xmas to all the posters on here! And a special shout out to ED, great job u do buddy and hope u have a good one! 🎄🍾☃️ Just seeing on sky we’ve accepted an 18 million bid from Brighton for Moussa! Think we’re short changing ourselves there! Must be a big sell on clause! But Brighton! Jesus how times have changed! Hope he liked playing championship football because he’ll be back there next season!


{Ed007's Note - It's nonsense Lh, Celtic have definitely 100% NOT accepted any bids for Dembele. Merry Christmas to you and your family mate, have a great day.}

1.) 25 Dec 2017 10:33:11
Almost ruined ma day when I seen that on Sky! Moussa must stay! 🍀🍀🍀

Merry Christmas Bhoys and Ghirls, have a great time! 🍀🍀🍀

Ed’s many thanks for the time and effort that goes into running this brilliant sight!

HH 🍀🍀🍀.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, Scott and Merry Christmas to you too.}

2.) 25 Dec 2017 10:36:22
How can sky speak get away with talking shite like that that's surely slander and false reporting.

{Ed007's Note - They're reporting it as a 'Sly sources understands...' piece which roughly translates to 'We made this up...' The reporter reporting it had Dembele going to Milan a couple of weeks ago as well.}

3.) 25 Dec 2017 11:12:30
Some poor hun home alone this christmas . . . could be a long day.

4.) 25 Dec 2017 11:14:04
I thought this was load of pish when I heard.
I have read a few posts on a few different places slagging dembele and his ambition.
Just because Celtic accept an offer ( which I really doubt) doesn't mean dembele will want to go there.
He has his eye on bigger teams than that.

5.) 25 Dec 2017 15:18:06
Merry Christmas Ed to you and your family and all the lads who post on the site. Thanks for all the great work ed and nice to hear the dembele claim is rubbish. Looking forward to them Christmas period and six points! Enjoy your Christmas lads.

6.) 25 Dec 2017 21:50:29
Ed Merry Christmas to you and the family. Ed i believe he is off and its West Ham. We shall see but hopefully he will contribute on the 30th as his final game. great site ed see you in 2018.

7.) 25 Dec 2017 22:27:13
Ed Happy Christmas and to all on hear have a good one.

{Ed007's Note - Merry Christmas, Tony.}



13 Jun 2017 10:11:17
Is it true we've offered more money for Hayes and Christie on loan ED? Find this really strange mate, I thought we'd offered to much in the first place!


{Ed007's Note - I don't believe it and if it's true it's a truly awful piece of business.}

1.) 13 Jun 2017 11:40:37
Thinkin the same ED, makes no sense whatsoever! Paying over a million for a 30 year old squad player while letting Christie go! Just cannot see what we gain from it if it's true!

{Ed007's Note - If it is true I'm hoping the chance to play in England appeals to Hayes more than being a bench warmer at Celtic.}

2.) 13 Jun 2017 13:02:50
Christie should be breaking into our team this year rather than being a key player for our closest rivals.

{Ed007's Note - Spot on Davie and I couldn't agree more. Christie should be on our bench as cover for LW/CAM/RW since he can easily play any of those 3 positions at domestic level.}

3.) 13 Jun 2017 13:31:02
Hayes will not be going anywhere soon as Aberdeen have bigger things to worry about finding a new manager for a start if the talk in the town is to believed.

4.) 13 Jun 2017 17:38:41
Hayes is a decent player for Aberdeen a good player but for me I really hope we have more ambition that to really go after him we need to improve the team not just keep it as is.

5.) 13 Jun 2017 18:20:05
Definitely ed, the signing of Hayes would iritate me but no where as much as losing Christie. A loan would be bad enough but Christie as makeweight in a permanent deal for Hayes would be crime of the century.

{Ed007's Note - It just doesn't make sense to me. Although I'm not a fan of Hayes in the slightest but I can see why Rodgers might be interested in him given their history and that he's a decent SPFL level player but to use Christie in the deal is baffling me.}

6.) 13 Jun 2017 22:15:03
Maybe Rodgers is aware of something in Christie's character and behaviour that he doesn't want influencing other young Celtic players . Before anyone thinks I am picking on the boy, I don't know anything re his off- field behaviour but it would explain why Brendan is happy enough for him to be away at least for another season

I def think Brendan can bring Hayes on like he did with Armstrong and look forward to him signing . It goes without saying that if he joins both in forums and on the stands we should give him a very good welcome and give him time.

7.) 14 Jun 2017 08:53:32
Or maybe he thinks the young boy will simply benefit from another season out on loan playing regular first team football.

8.) 14 Jun 2017 17:37:59
No need to panic. The Hayes move reminds me of every other domestic siging. Similar to Barry Robson signing who was excellent for us even at European level as was Hartley.

So i can see why with our recent success financially and on the pitch that fans want a big name but give Hayes a chance.

As for Christie. He is young and won't get in front of Rogic or Armstrong atm. Good thing is he is quality and when one of them get sold he will step in with ease.



11 Jun 2017 18:40:50
God not even 24hrs after the final whistles gone and the hacks are touting griff for a move to the promised land! Embarrassing is not the word for this so called journalism! It's actually laughable!


1.) 11 Jun 2017 19:18:04
He's been linked to England for ages.
Leeds were interested before monk left. Lambert was supposedly wanting to take him back to wolves as well.

2.) 11 Jun 2017 20:10:24
Scottish media lies, why repeat . Ignore them they might get fed up.

3.) 11 Jun 2017 20:49:33
The WBA stuff only started today. What a joke. They're a long ball pub team barely a hundred fans to scrape together. Journalism at its usual worst.

4.) 11 Jun 2017 22:48:24
surely you had to know there would be loads of rumours about him going down south after them goals not surprised in the least that Newcastle are one of the rumoured teams.

5.) 11 Jun 2017 23:32:52
These are not rumours lies started by Scottish media to try to upset player, agent or fans .
A rumour to have any meaning should only be taken seriously when Celtic receive an actual bid for a player . Clubs can make enquirers re other club's player but if club tells him player is not for sale and that they wouldn't welcome a bid that's usually that .
I would be very surprise if Celtic had received a bid for Griffiths.

6.) 11 Jun 2017 23:42:15
These are not rumours started by media to upset fans or the player! Away and gies peace, utter garbage! That's exactly what it is! Utter nonsense printed without any foundation or hint of proof! And not a word about it before quarter to 7 on Saturday nite!

7.) 12 Jun 2017 00:36:13
Lh86 I think you may have misread what old man Chris was saying he said it was lies by the media.

8.) 12 Jun 2017 01:29:53
Apologies, I thought u were saying the media wasn't lying! Haha, I'm thinking surely u can't be serious! Sorry again Chris. but only if I've picked u up wrong, if not I stand by my original post 😂😂😜😜.

9.) 12 Jun 2017 23:48:11
Don't worry about it Lh86 . We can all make mistakes .

10.) 13 Jun 2017 08:16:15
Dont know why people are still angry about this, its been going on since i was a bhoy, a long long time ago.

22 Mar 2018 10:07:11
Well I woke up to the best bit of news for a while this Mornin! ‘Boyata in no rush to sign new contract’ thank f*ck for that! That he’s even been offered a new contract is quite frankly staggering! One of the worse defenders I’ve ever seen in the hoops! And what Brendan is thinking offering him a new deal god only knows! If he’s our first choice next season then I’m preparing myself for more humpings in Europe!


1.) 22 Mar 2018 13:25:58
a decent manager wouldn't even play him, he's a dud.

2.) 22 Mar 2018 14:00:46
Rogers has a blind spot for defenders. I can’t believe we are even thinking about this. If Rogers makes it five windows on the trot not improving that shambles of a defence, then he won’t be going to any big club either.

3.) 22 Mar 2018 14:03:10
He’s brutal JB! Never has been or never will be good enough for us! Read some of his interview in a Belgian paper, saying he still fancies playing in the EPL! Think he actually fancies himself as a bit of a player, nothing could be further from the truth!

4.) 22 Mar 2018 16:22:12
I would take Efe back than have Boyata! 🤣.

5.) 22 Mar 2018 16:22:19
He's already at a big club magic.

6.) 22 Mar 2018 17:02:45
I'm sure I read on here a wee while ago (well done Ed) that Boyata was looking to move on. So from his point of view it doesn't surprise me. However it doesn't surprise me either that the club would make an offer. Come May he's in his final year of contract so as a selling club it would be better to have him on a longer deal?

7.) 22 Mar 2018 19:24:20
Probably one of the least gifted footballers with the ball at his feet to come out of Belgium. I'd rather they tore up the final years contract than sign him up for longer looking for more sale value. The guy is a bigger bombscare than Ambrose was.

8.) 22 Mar 2018 20:08:13
I thought he showed potential at the start of last year and he had a few good games partnered with Simunovic over the previous season although he (like Efe) was prone to silly mistakes that cost goals.
However, he has really deteriorated this season - as has Simunovic and Lustig. In fact the only consistent defenders we have at present are Ajer and Tierney - although Hendry has started his career well.
The defense has been a long term problem between injury and lapses in form and Boyata should not be anywhere near the back four IMO.

9.) 22 Mar 2018 22:41:41
I think he is not being played in his best position, some guys are versatile and can play a multitude of different positions to an acceptable standard, don't think Boyata is like this, think he has the potential to be a good central defender, but he has to play that position and not be played as back, or a wing back, think everyone is being a bit harsh on him, he was playing out of position in The rangers game, and he had just came back from an injury, so he had not much game time, so it was probably a misjudgement on Brendan's part.

10.) 23 Mar 2018 05:50:39
When you look at some of the talent to come out of Belgian football, we must have one of the least talented Belgians kicking about.

11.) 24 Mar 2018 18:43:00
Bodes anyone else agree with Jamesbhoy 67 re Brendan Rodgers not of a decent level of a manager .
I thought most of us thought B R was brilliant .
I would have Boyota on my team, if everyone was available.
I worry if the power of the pen &cloud mouth abuse are going to destroy his confidence and drive him away .



11 Jan 2018 12:15:30
Reading something bitton said about playing PSG, said that they were playing a different sport and he was saying a prayer every time they attacked! This for me says everything about the mentality of our players going into these matches! There’s absolutely no belief that they can do something against these players! And before anybody says it I get theyr better players and worth a fortune! But I’m talking about belief going onto that park and thinking let’s show this mob that we’re not just here to roll over! Big Sutton was bang on when he said that our players stand in that tunnel and don’t believe they belong there! Watched Bristol city the other nite give it a rite good go against Man City and thought why can’t we do the same against these richer clubs! To many star struck Wee bhoys in our team IMO!


1.) 11 Jan 2018 12:45:13
Amiens only lost 0-2 at home to PSG and they had 10 men for an hour. We are better than them yet with 11 v 11 we get battered at home to them.

2.) 11 Jan 2018 12:54:20
Sadly LH86 I don't feel we will ever be able to compete with the likes of PSG. Playing in a mediocre league that we play in and the finances available to us it's merely an achievement just qualifying for the group stages! The money we have made from the group stages and player transfers over the last few years really means nothing in terms of helping us compete in Europe because the quality of player we need to allow us to compete won't come to our league. I hear a lot of Celtic fans and fans of other clubs saying " why are Celtic not spending big on players with all the cash they have made? " Celtic are spending money but its is very difficult to try and convince e. g an £8m rated player to come to what is effectively a one horse poor league. All it does in terms of the money we have made is keep us dominant domestically. That's the sad reality im afraid.

3.) 11 Jan 2018 13:10:22
That just proves that bitton dorsnt have the mental attributes to play for celtic at the top level. We shoupd have got shot of him years ago anyways.

4.) 11 Jan 2018 13:27:31
LH86 is absolutely right, while we can't "compete" in the sense of challenging to win the CL, we can perform better and snatch the odd result.

Right now since Deila era (we are still using most of his squad) they always folded when the pressure was on. Bottled in finals and semis, bottled in qualifiers etc

We have a team with some talent, but mentally when the pressure is on many of them go into hiding.

That's why we need to invest in new players for most positions, to bring in a new mentality.

different era but when Lisbon Lions came up against these great favourites they didn't just sit back and go, oh they are better let's hope we don't get hammered. They said let's get into them!

5.) 11 Jan 2018 13:35:23
Malky my point isn’t ablut money mate. none of us on here are under any illusions about the money they can spend compared to us. its the hunger and belief I’m talking about! Bravetart86 has gave an example of a game there and there’s plenty more this season across Europe! For me it’s a total lack of belief through the whole squad! I’m not for one minute saying we should be competing with PSG or Bayern to qualify, but that statement from bitton tells me that these players think they don’t belong in that company! Theyr spanked before they even get on the field!

6.) 11 Jan 2018 14:04:12
McGregor said similar. " we have to respect psg " before a game? No say it after the game once earned . Until psg spent silly money on neymar and the mbappe loan? No one rated them as a European giant . Until they actually win it? They are no more than a normal team throwing money at wining it . We didn't fear man city who year on year throw similar or more money at it . Wish people would stop hailing this psg team till they win something of note .

7.) 11 Jan 2018 14:39:47
The players had the hunger and belief to spank Anderlecht on their own turf, the players had the hunger and belief to give a good account of themselves against Bayern at Celtic Park but ultimately lost narrowly because quality told in the end. were people only expecting to concede 4 against PSG and 6 against Barca? We could have all the hunger and belief in the world but with the quality of player we currently have at our disposal we will continue to lose heavily to the PSG's and Barca's of this world! Biton doesn't belong in that company. Just being realistic.

8.) 11 Jan 2018 15:54:00
Can’t agree mate! Like I said there’s plenty of examples of teams with far less budgets and inferior players getting a result against top teams! It can be done, but those 11 players who go out on the pitch all have to believe that! To me bittons words while maybe not speaking for the whole squad, it tells me that that we don’t have enough strong characters In that team! U even watch a game In the spl without brown and some of them look like rabbits caught In the headlights! But it’s all about opinions and we all have different ones sometimes lol.

9.) 11 Jan 2018 16:12:22
Mate I was praying aswell when Biton was playing😂😂.

10.) 11 Jan 2018 16:22:39
🤣🤣🤣 a was thinking the exact same thing when a read that! Big bag! 😂😂.

11.) 11 Jan 2018 16:40:37
I don’t think we’ll need to wait too long for that DelBhoy. Although you’re perhaps being a bit ignorant considering they’ve won the CWC in the past.

12.) 11 Jan 2018 17:17:36
Good post, and excellent thread. For me, Biton gets a bye here, as a central midfielder playing centre-half. Too right I'd be saying a prayer I don't get found wanting.

But for the general spirit and attitude this does sum us up in key games. No faith in each other to get the jobs done. In part this is because of the recent history in crunch games when we've folded so happily, as has been pointed out. But maybe--by the same logic--they are only one key result away from changing the context? Brendan seems to talk about something like this.

I don't think spending cash on a few hotshots can really change the mentality of the team in the way that's required, but we do need to spend the money for other reasons.

13.) 11 Jan 2018 17:45:19
Unfortunately we seem to have too many like Bitton who are full of fear and far too ready to accept defeat before a ball is kicked.
Not so long ago we had WGS and NL teams qualify for the last 16 and beat some very formidable opponents full of world class players.
The attitude, confidence and belief must be generated from the manager down and BR strikes me as a positive guy, so why the panic sets in once they go onto the pitch baffles me.
Maybe they should take a leaf out of the 'Lions' book and belt out The Celtic Song in the tunnel before each game?

14.) 11 Jan 2018 18:05:29
We will never be able to compete with the super clubs but at least not get embarrassed by them. Amiens are a small club that probably doesn't have the money we have but can still keep a result respectful even down to 10 men last night. I think that in itself would be progress in Europe. And finishing 3rd and a run in the EL is a good achievement. We may get lucky and get a real easy group when qualifying one time and possibly pinch 2nd but were likely to come up against one of these super clubs in the last 16. Although financially that is good for the club but a 12-0 aggregate loss against PSG is embarrassing no matter how good they are.

15.) 11 Jan 2018 18:14:58
To be fair to Brendan Rodgers team, they've had to to deal with firstly Barcelona and Man City in a group and then PSG and Bayern in a group.

16.) 11 Jan 2018 22:03:13
If big Sutton had motivated Lincoln to match the poor teams that beat them when he was manager . and if big Sutton hadnt froze and lost his nerve at Ibrox and left nine team mates to play against the cheats, I would have some respect for his comments.



14 Dec 2017 17:36:45
We’ll just in from work and got a letter saying nobody but me can use my season tickets! An absolute bloody cheek they’ve got sending this out to people who shell out for season books! If I can’t make a game I always give my ticket to a pal or family member and that’s exactly what I’ll continue to do! The tickets been payed for so what’s the feckin difference! Pisses me off things like this honestly! Absolute bollocks! As is there pricing for the zenit game and when the cut off point is to buy the tickets! Not heard of a little thing called Xmas down there am guessing! 😡🤬.


1.) 14 Dec 2017 17:57:42
It’s a bloody joke, how to kill the feel good factor, and merry Christmas, how are they going to police that the queues are bad enough.

2.) 14 Dec 2017 17:58:19
That has always been in the terms and conditions when buying a season ticket. I can remember it printed in the old books.

3.) 14 Dec 2017 18:08:08
Had to laugh at this bollocks, what a waste of paper sending out those letters, as if anyone's going to pay any attention to it. As you say my tickets payed for I can give it to who I like.

4.) 14 Dec 2017 18:48:22
fkn farce what about the csc's who have tickets in there name. I'm with u lh still be passing mine round to anyone who needs if im not going.

5.) 14 Dec 2017 19:11:40
It’s a joke lads! It’s like let’s think of a way to rile the supporters up! Totally pointless letter and bloody waste of Time!

6.) 14 Dec 2017 19:30:53
It seems maybe the start of the club wanting to re-sell the ticket if the ticket holder can't go. Im sure other clubs in the EPL do it. Looks like another way to generate cash.

7.) 14 Dec 2017 20:16:43
Am north stand upper and pay a fair whack, if am not there one of my bhoys or pals will get it, if everybody that couldn't go left there ticket not used you'd see a big difference on attendances as well as match day revenue would drop they might change there tune then. cheek.

8.) 14 Dec 2017 21:00:42
They wouldn't change their tune because it's part of the SPFLs regulations. Says so in the letter.

9.) 15 Dec 2017 12:13:23
Oh well better stick to the rules then.

{Ed007's Note - The letter is to try and cut down on grown men using kid's tickets after a flurry of complaints by other season ticket holders about it.}



05 Dec 2017 21:36:36
Left 15 min early tonite! That was a pathetic gutless performance tonite by the way! Embarrassing!


1.) 05 Dec 2017 21:42:55
Let's forget the Dembele £30mill price tag. Take what we can get and move him on. BR clearly does not rate Griff so no idea what will happen there. On the whole we are not even a europa league team. So poor.

2.) 05 Dec 2017 21:45:23
Was really poor and takes the shine in qualifying for EL away. I think we really are starting to look tired, need a boost from somewhere.

3.) 05 Dec 2017 22:07:54
Let’s be honest lads if Anderlecht hadn’t been in a crisis when we played them at home then we’d be dead last yet again! Rodgers says we’re learning, well I’m sorry but that just isn’t true! That was one of the worse performances I’ve seen in a long long time! I take no comfort that we’ve stumbled into the EL! Any decent side in that will pump us home and away! Remember the days Celtic Park was a fortress! Those days are long gone now!

4.) 05 Dec 2017 22:17:11
You left early that's embarrassing.

5.) 05 Dec 2017 22:21:18
Yes we have qualified for EL. I think despite that we have not improved at all from last year. Behind points from same amounts of games as las year in SPL. Bigger defeats, but teams change so in many ways it can't be measured. So only in my opinion, we ain't progressing.

6.) 05 Dec 2017 22:30:38
That was the most spinaless performance l have seen for years. They say that they are not going to change how they play against psg and Munich but then they can kick the ball up the field from the word go. Only Gordon for me was a pass mark. The changes helped but hanni ran the show. We are no where near a champion league team. Struggle away from home and now not won a game at home in the group since 2014! Just goes to show how poor our league really is. One awful performance, thank god it's over!

7.) 05 Dec 2017 22:54:23
Aye welsbhoy it’s embarrassing that I didn’t want to sit there in the cold watchn that Shoite with ma 6 year old nephew tae 90 minutes were up! Away and don’t talk pish! Dae u pay ma season book by the way? Naw well never u mind when a leave!

8.) 05 Dec 2017 23:11:32
If you don't want people to mind when you leave maybe you shouldn't post about when you leave 😂😂.

Fair play your right it's your book you deserve to do how you please we just have differing opinions on how we see things. as book holders some go to be entertained and want value for money for their book and when things aren't as they thought they can complain and leave that's their right and some of us go to purely to back the team right to the end no matter how good or bad the performance is.

No kev83 I’ll say exactly when I’m leaving mate but thanks for the advice! Welsbhoy totally agree that we all have differing opinions and I tip my hat to those who stayed to the death to watch what was a woeful half hearted performance! For me that was as bad a performance as we’ve had under Brendan and we can’t always fall back on what we do domestically! Yes our run has been truly magnificent and we’ve shown unbelievable consistency! But that tonite was another abject performance to add to the many we’ve had under Brendan! We’ve won 1 CL game out of 12 and none out of 6 home games, I’m sorry mate but that’s reason to complain in my book! But I apologise if I was a bit nippy with you mate, just sheer frustration that’s all. feel like we should and could do better than what we have done of late!

{Ed007's Note - I'm just glad the CL is over for another year. I wonder where all the 'who cares about CL results as long as we're in it to get the money' posters we used to have went?
Me personally, I'd take a domestic Treble over CL Last 16 any season but the other side of the coin is the CL money keeps us light years ahead of the rest of Scottish football.
I think I might just have contradicted myself lol - **** it!}

ED I’ll be honest and I’ve said it before. i don’t want us in the champions league mate! Yes the money is great but the hammerings we’re taking on a regular basis just isn’t worth it! That tonite was against a team more on our level and we failed miserably. i can take a loss mate but the way we’re losing is really tough to take! We’re either getting humped or look like a team who don’t actually believe they belong at this level! It reminded me of the gladbach game at home last year, just look like a team who lack ideas and the belief to tell themselves that they deserve to be in the competition! The team needs freshened up next month imo, there’s to many players who know theyr guaranteed a game and need competition in there! Also thought there was a lot of tired players out there to. wee Tierney runs himself into the ground for us and I’d hate the kid to get burn out! Few signings to keep players on there toes is a must!

{Ed007's Note - I honestly don't let CL results get to me too much, we simply can't compete with your PSG's and Bayern Munichs but there's no excuses for a performance like tonight. I think Rodgers made a mistake not starting Ntcham instead of Armstrong and I'd have started Rogic over McGregor. It wasn't good enough but it was still an OG that decided the game, 0-0 and folk would be saying we soaked up their pressure and got the job done lol.}

12.) 06 Dec 2017 01:20:43
Was a bit unfair on you there bud your assessment of the game was bang on. Felt a bit annoyed at the end of the game when it was half empty and the team tho it wasn't a good performance they had just qualified for Europa which was the aim didn't get the credit I feel they deserved from the crowd. Think to many have this illusion that cos were Celtic we should be doing better in Europe dontbknow why fact is were never going to compete at that level so Europe after xmas is a great achievement.

13.) 06 Dec 2017 08:03:13
Or you could say that most of the team has played a lot of football recently, and it just caught up on them, where as Anderlecht have been focused on this match, and knew what they had to do, they had to win by three goals, their trainer had them closing their eyes for ten minutes every day, and made them repeat, we have to win by three goals, yes master we will, and every night before they went to sleep, they repeated the mantra, we will win by three goals, yes master, we will, and then. well you know how it turned out.



02 Dec 2017 22:53:52
Seen PSG got beat off strasbourg today,16th in the league! Nobody can doubt the class of these teams but just proves if u set up properly you can shock these teams! If we drew Strasbourg in the EL if they were in it, don’t think any of us would fear them! Just thinking out loud lads lol. still think we could do so much better despite the financial gap between us and the elite! We haven’t done ourselves justice in these games IMO!


1.) 02 Dec 2017 23:22:43
been waiting for that from someone. just puts our undefeated run into perspective about how impressive it is for us to go 67 hh.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 23:28:40
We drew with Motherwell during the week smashed them today sometimes one off results happen.

3.) 02 Dec 2017 23:38:42
There is no doubt the manager and players are still hurting from the heavy defeats and will do everything in their power to improve and learn lessons, however I really believe that fear and nerves are our biggest enemy on these nights and a wee run in the EL might go a long way to building confidence and experience for future CL campaigns.
At present we are streets ahead domestically - and our domestic league is well behind France and similar standards, therefor the transformation to Europe's premier tournament is currently a bridge too far and we need regular European competition (and a wee bit more investment) to try and compete at the higher level.
Beating Anderlecht will go some way to achieving this IMO.

4.) 02 Dec 2017 23:45:15
Well thought I’d be the first to say it WB! Absolutely nothing to do with our unbeaten domestic run or what a magnificent achievement it is! I’m pointing the result out to highlight that these teams can be frustrated and you can nick a result if u set up in the right way! There’s a good few examples of it this season already across Europe!

5.) 03 Dec 2017 00:01:41
wasnt a dig mate the way we are so behind in europe is no surprise and shocks can happen (barca) my point was to emphasise it doesn't matter how ggood you are, going so long undefeated domestically is a great achievement in any league hh bud.

6.) 03 Dec 2017 09:57:19
I get you welsbhoy it's a lot of luck and hard work required and in Europe we haven't had the luck exept anderlecht away 3 goals out 4 on target or something like that I think each game we have been better to watch just silly errors costing to our down fall big game during the week to see how good we can handle the pressure.

7.) 03 Dec 2017 10:08:46
Think the main ptoz for psg is the Champions league.

8.) 03 Dec 2017 14:40:20
If Ntchams shot had scored it would have been two nothing, and then maybe PSG would have collapsed, and maybe we would have beat them 7-0,as Clough said, "it's a funny old game ".

9.) 03 Dec 2017 14:41:02
Maybe the undefeated run is not as important as getting a good result on Tuesday,

10.) 03 Dec 2017 14:42:31
We shouldn't get hung up on going undefeated, is meaningless in the long run if the team aren't progressing, the standard has to be Europe or the world, like it was for the Lisbon lions, they were the equals of anyone on the planet, to get beat by that much by PsG, something is going wrong.

I will say it again, PSG are not that good, Celtic made them look good, how many times was possession given away in dangerous positions needlessly, that resulted in goals, that wasn't about how good PSG were, it was to do with how careless and unprofessional and how not switched on enough Celtic were, but hey is ok we can come back to Scotland and the unbeaten run goes on.

am not saying that is a bad thing, but we should concentrate on giving PSG a smack rather than worrying about Motherwell, and another thing the Motherwell manager must be commended on the way he has changed Motherwells fortunes this season, but after last weekend, he should take a leaf out of Arsene Wenger's book, and when asked about something he should just say he never seen anything, rather than saying that Kipre never even touched Sinclair, which when he watched the replay must have made him feel like a pillock.

11.) 03 Dec 2017 14:44:31
Lh86 i agree we could do better in europe or at least not get smashed by 7 goals. Issue is BR won't change his style. Its that style that has kept us undefeated in SPL so maybe we need to accept it. Like you however i can't see why we can't play one style for CL and another at home. Is that not what tactics is about? Tuesday is going to be interesting.

If we go out and play our usual style and get beat by 2, 3 or even worse 4 then i do think our style in Europe will need to change. Will do a lot of damage to BR. Its a big night for BR. Win on Tuesday and BR can put 2 fingers up to everyone who criticises his euro tactics and that includes you and me.

Lol, lose by 2 or more and that tells its own story which is we are tactically inept in any competition outside of SPL and that gives more ammo to all those that criticise the 67 unbeaten run. Big night Tuesday.

Been saying for a while now that our set plays are shocking! Ntcham, Sinclair are terrible and KT wasn’t much better on Saturday! I’ve lost count how many times we hit the first man from set plays! It’s like corners are an inconvenience to us by the way! Poor delivery and absolutely no aggression to get to the ball when it does make it!

How I used to love seeing Alan Thompson on a corner, with Balde, Mjalby, Sutton and Hartson all breaking there neck to get on the end of it! On Saturday we had 3 6 foot plus defenders in the box and we rarely managed to give them anything to go for in the box! I know Brendan is all for the passing game but when your having 12 corners in a match and barely getting an attempt on target from any of them then something has to be done!

Has to be Wee McGregor for me! He was always quite a tidy player but he’s added more to his game now! And I know it mite sound daft but I think broony has been like nite and day since BR came in. his passing and postional sense have improved dramatically. those would be my 2.

Got to be broony for me kev, nobody else comes close! Forrest has done well, but it’s his usual first part of the season and back to the same frustrating Forrest since January! Seen a quote from big Sutton online were he said, there would be a good chance the league would be so much closer if it wasn’t for broony! I couldn’t agree more honestly! If the whole team had his fight and desire for every game fhe league would be won already! So it’s got to be the captain for me, and if it’s anyone else it will purely be down to the fact that broony is disliked by most people outside our club!

Well put fgj. the word we all seem to mention about our play is predictable! It’s all to easy for these teams to sit back and keep it tight, and wait for us to run out of ideas. which more often than not we seem to do! Last nite in a game were dundee sat deep and said come and break us down was tailor made for a paddy and is what musonda was supposed to be brought in for! Someone made a good point further down the page. if we don’t score early doors they simply just run out of ideas and most of the time the players and most certainly us fans know that we’re in for frustrating boring game!

Can’t agree with u Stan! When we play well and win the players get praised, so when we don’t play well and draw or lose people are allowed to say if theyr not happy! No one has abused any player, but if theyr off form or not playing well in a game then of course we’re going to ask for them to be dropped or subbed. and I’ll go back to my original point, how many games at Celtic Park this season have u came away and thought we were brilliant and u were thoroughly entertained? This isn’t just about last nites game, this is has been the norm for most of the season! Yes we’re on for the treble again and maybe it’s because we were spoiled with last seasons performances and going unbeaten, but this seasons games and especially at home have been well under par!
