The New No 7 is on his way, he will be announced just before the KO against the mini Huns tomorrow, loan again this season, with fixed price to buy at the end of season, Welcome. Back Sir.


1.) 13 Jul 2017 09:24:36
could a new 7 be an old 27?

2.) 13 Jul 2017 09:45:36
I am very excited about this, I got it from a friend who is a man city nut, and I really hope it is true and in the bag.

3.) 13 Jul 2017 10:14:40
Believe it when it happens Malika mate.

4.) 13 Jul 2017 10:19:19
Dont want any loan player having the 7 jersey tbh, even with option.

5.) 13 Jul 2017 11:11:23
Why bother negotiating a loan with a fixed price if we want to buy him now?

6.) 13 Jul 2017 11:38:04
Heard a few days back BR wants as many as 3 more top players in so i'm praying Paddy is one of them. Said it before if we can get this lad long term he would be our best signing in 20 years. Don't think Tierney will want to leave any time soon but if he had his buddy beside him for 10 in a row we can build a team around that 2. Hope we continute to get rid of the players who clearly don't have a future at the Club and we get more of the youths out on loan to other SPL clubs as its worked with Ajer and Christie. Pains me to say it but i now think Henderson will have to move for the sake of his career, i think he's fantastic and will follow his career regardless where he goes but we now have so many midfielders i don't see him holding down a place unfortunately. Same applies for Bitton.

7.) 13 Jul 2017 13:10:12
You're mate is a man city nut but somehow knows when celtic will unveil a new signing? Knowing about the signing, I could see as viable but not knowing when Celtic will unveil.

8.) 13 Jul 2017 16:04:16
If you were down to your last tenner, how many would stick it on Paddy being announced tomorrow?

No one?

Thoughts so.

I think this is a pile, but I hope it's true.

9.) 13 Jul 2017 17:47:37
Loan player who is in line to be first loaner to get a testimonial!



10 Jul 2017 11:21:08
Just heard from a friend of mine that Paddy Roberts is not included in the Man City, pre season tour squad. My friend is a bit of a city fanatic and normally doesn't miss much that goes on there, maybe good news for us?


1.) 10 Jul 2017 13:23:54
It hasn't been named yet. Is he a pal of Pep?

2.) 10 Jul 2017 13:30:50
Beat me to it. I have looked over all the city pages and they only came back today for training and nothing confirmed on squad.

3.) 10 Jul 2017 14:34:39
We are open to wishful thinking re wee paddy, in uo there with the best of them, but we need to not take anything at face value.

I will be gutted if paddy doesn't return. I know I'm not alone there.

4.) 10 Jul 2017 14:47:49
I asked my pal, about the squad being named, he told me that those going were told yesterday, public announcements I do not know about,

5.) 10 Jul 2017 18:17:56
I hope you're right. That would make my day.



18 Jun 2017 11:19:44
See some of the papers are reporting that Everton might come in for Dembelle, that might be a good bit of business all round,30 million plus James McCarthy sounds like good business and a nice pot to source a couple of good signings with. That would be progress which would please the board and keep us plebs dreams of CL and 10 in a row going strong.


1.) 18 Jun 2017 11:51:22
I hope he stays but this could be a great move for him if true as lukaku is leaving and could end up with plenty game time.

2.) 18 Jun 2017 13:05:33
£30m + McCarthy would be an amazing bit of business.

3.) 18 Jun 2017 16:12:58
£30m + McCarthy. Rodgers could do some damage with that sort of money without even dipping into his own budget/ champions league or potential VVD money.

That sort of money could pay for the likes of

Jean-Kevin Duverne
Paddy Roberts
Henry Onyekuru
Sardar Azmoun.

4.) 18 Jun 2017 16:15:05
Is McCarthy going to take a big drop in wages then?, I would like McCarthy in but I would prefer to keep Dembelle for another year, his value is only going to increase.

5.) 18 Jun 2017 16:52:07
Nowhere have I seen £30m + McCarthy quoted. I honestly think £23m + McCarthy + a 10 per cent sell on clause would be amazing biz! Hope I am totally wrong btw. HH!

6.) 18 Jun 2017 17:01:52
Clutching at straws lads, no way would we get 30 plus mccarthy.

7.) 18 Jun 2017 19:41:05
10m plus McCarthy would be tremendous business. HH.

8.) 18 Jun 2017 21:45:46
I wish people would stop going on about McCarthy, for the last year or so he's been consistently injured . I also don't really see him controlling many games in the prem or for Ireland. For the outlay I'd think there is more important areas.

9.) 19 Jun 2017 09:47:07
35mill plus mcarthy plus 25 % add on / sell on clause. and they are still getting a bargain . they want him to replace lukaku which means they think he's up to the job . do you think theyd accept 10 mill plus an ok player plus 10% for lukaku. no chance. if he's going to the epl the so called greatest / richest league in the world then its epl transfer money. we don't need to sell. we gave away wanyama. foster . Virgil . with "its only spl he's playing in "mentality . no more.

10.) 19 Jun 2017 15:55:26
Why the rush to sell Dembelle and why link his sale with the purchase of Mc Carthy . Neither are realistic . I think that Celtic should sell Dembelle when it suits Celtic not the SMSM who would like nothing better than see Celtic sel their top stars too early and at a bad price.

11.) 19 Jun 2017 22:12:01
Bhoys i am betting now we don't sell dembele for more than £20 mill. let's not argue the point just wait till he is sold.

12.) 19 Jun 2017 22:13:29
its the papers that are trying to sell dembele, he hasn't told celtic he wants to leave.



14 Jun 2017 10:10:59
Reto ziglier, that comes from the left field, says he has already been offered a contract, plays in KT's position and d is out of contract with FC SIon.


1.) 14 Jun 2017 11:05:11
I thought Izzy had just signed an extension.

2.) 14 Jun 2017 11:56:41
This is a bit of an odd one. Ziegler has a fair bit experience, but Izzy is one of our most experienced players and more than capable of being cover, unless of course he's on the move?

3.) 14 Jun 2017 11:59:49
i doubt he would extended his contract then make him 3rd choice.

4.) 14 Jun 2017 14:01:03
DR reporting they've made calls to Celtic sources and there's no interest in Ziegler. Just trying to drum up interest for himself.

5.) 14 Jun 2017 21:13:09
KT maybe switching sides perhaps. Just a suggestion but has been mentioned here BR likes to change people's position so maybe that's it or he's going to push KT further up field.

Or play this guy at cb as he can play there allegedly.

Or maybe it's a non starter and just paper chat.



31 Mar 2017 13:44:16
Some Rags touting Scott Bain, does anybody know anything? I was hoping that Michael Vorm was comming but with CG signing a 3 yr deal, that may have gone by the wayside.


1.) 31 Mar 2017 18:01:26
I think we have been linked with him in the past. Anytime I've seen him (which is mostly against us) he looks like a decent keeper, makes some gd saves.

2.) 31 Mar 2017 18:19:33
To small what about Angus Gunn at Man City future Scotland keeper if he does not get a England call up.

3.) 31 Mar 2017 18:38:44
Was he not playing for england under 21's last week? Is he allowed to play for scotland as long as he's not played with england first team?

4.) 01 Apr 2017 12:46:48
Is this the same Scott bain that shipped 7 last nite. 9 shots on target 7 goals hardly looks good on him.

5.) 01 Apr 2017 13:09:57
I liked the guy that was on loan to Aberdeen fae Liverpool.

6.) 02 Apr 2017 04:03:56
Kev83 thought he did well for them as well.

Welcome Back to the Green Brigade, hope you make Paradise rock tonight, you have been sadly missed, glad to see you stuck to your principles, the place has been without a heart, hope all the prawn sandwich panty wetters remember to sing along tonight.
To the pitch, I think that we have put out the best we have, no need to worry about the back line, Biton will do the job he has been sent out to do. i think we need to worry more about Sinclair, he is off the pace and has been missing for the last 3 games, I hope BR has give him a good kick up the ass and he gets the service into LG. I thought mcgreggor would start, but he is there to come on when we have run the legs off them. I hope we have the chance to put the whole tie to bed tonight.




23 Jul 2017 19:27:40
Dafabet, Ballochi, Lh86, see you have formed your own pressure Brigade, most of the comments that appear in the statement issued by the new pressure group, seem to be lifted directly from your comments, I am Not one for General Sweeping statements, but if it is not you 3 bandidos, then you can join them on twitter, where you will be welcomed into this anti Celtic, Anti Irish "pressure group with open arms. I am now done with this topic, but just saw the press releases for this group and could not help but laugh.
P. S. if you did not know already, "lose Talk Costs Lives"
That is not an Irish Statement, but taken from numerous Second World War posters, just in case you or your friends in the new pressure group would like to read something into it that is not there.
Sorry Lads could not resist it.


1.) 23 Jul 2017 20:44:06
This is the work of SMSM and others hostile to our club turning our own fans words against us. We must be united, let's show the scumbags that, starting on Wednesday night. United we are unique.

{Ed007's Note - It's TRIFC fans that have set it up with the backing of the press. Look how quickly the Evening Times had a story on their website about it all.}

2.) 23 Jul 2017 20:56:17
Hook line and sinker Malika.

3.) 23 Jul 2017 20:57:07
Hahaha made me giggle there malika! More utter guff from yourself as per usual, but it gave me a chuckle anyway! The one about you not being one for sweeping statements in particular had me in stitches! 😂😂😂😂.

4.) 23 Jul 2017 20:57:11
So we show them we won't be split. Give the northern Norwegians (not ma da's people) hell on Wednesday then we have a great day out on Sunderland on saturday.

5.) 23 Jul 2017 22:03:23
Oh Bhoys you are worried, so sorry for that, sweeping statements like let them start a team in Ireland and they can all go there, are the particular forte of you guys, the GB are all nobs, is also one of your sweeping statements, both used by this group Tonight.

I hope I do not post utter guff, as I have always thought that I try to be direct reasonable and balanced in my comments on here over the yrs.
I wait for ballochi comments, don't you have his mobile number guys?
Let's hope that is the end of it. btw these are the first 2 posts in a while where you two have not posted any anti GB or Irish comments, so that is a good start.

Guys as I said in my original post on this subject, Sorry but I could not resist.
Tomorrow is Monday so I will get back to on pitch comments from then.
Lads you have no defense, they have caught you Hook, Line and Sinker, you have been used and abused by the dark side.

6.) 23 Jul 2017 22:33:03
The only people gaining from what has happened recently is Rosenborg and I don't for one second believe any Celtic fan will be happy to see empty seats on Wed night. The place should be full and it should be rocking with the entire support getting right behind the Manager and Team because that's what they deserve.

7.) 23 Jul 2017 22:51:32
Jesus see for being done with this topic your not half still going on about it! And no defense for what? Voicing our own opinion about the GB and not putting them up on your wee pedestal like a love sick wee boy! And it's Monday tomorrow so u'll be back to on pitch comments! Hahaha! U sure u actually remember any on pitch stuff? Would u like me to tell u who we're playing on Wednesday or will u wait til the GB release another statement letting u know it's ok to get back to football matters! 🙊🙊😂😂.

8.) 24 Jul 2017 06:13:26
You guys have no idea what my thoughts are on a united Ireland , Palestine , the troubles , Scottish nationalism , poverty , or any other subjects . You also don't have any clue what I have contributed to any of these causes in the past or still do . Just because I don't think Celtic park is the place to air my opinions on these subjects and I have a crazy fantasy about people going to Celtic park with their only agenda being supporting the team and cheering them on to victory. Believe me kids you don't have a clue where I have been or what I have seen .

9.) 24 Jul 2017 06:18:53
By the way I challenge you to read through my posts and give me one quote where I have said anything anti-Irish or anti- gb if you can't are you man enough to apologize for spreading lies?

My dads bigger than your dad.

Beginning to act like Huns now bhoys let it go all this in fighting is not what we're about.

12.) 24 Jul 2017 14:49:33
Fair point Welshboy the GB won't be mentioned again by me. My thoughts on them are well documented. Time to move on. Personally I think we will take 3 or 4 off Rosenberg on Wednesday night. Hail hail.



21 Jul 2017 17:26:48
Disgrace Disgrace, Disgrace, Celtic, Stand up, Stand Up. I hope every clear thinking Celtic fan with spend the cost of a stamp and write directly to the club, I say stamp because emails will not be accounted for and will receive an automated reply.
Shame on The CEO and the Board, Shame on You. We have been battered enough by these crazy officials and the Administration in Scottish Football, who take great joy in these events. Celtic REVERSE THIS DECISION,


1.) 21 Jul 2017 18:10:37
Do you not think the whole point in the harsh treatment is to weed this nonsense out? On a serious note, everybody knows looking at that flag - there is going to be a problem. It's 2017, time for people to grow up.

2.) 21 Jul 2017 18:11:48
see they've only closed it to the 900 of us in the lower section takes the piss.

3.) 21 Jul 2017 18:20:29
Celtic FC are a very soft target for so-called football authorities at home and abroad because of our roots, traditions and even success and have repeatedly capitulated and/ or bent the knee even though there are countless examples of more serious 'offences' worldwide.
I'm not saying it is acceptable, but Flares, smoke bombs, controversial banners and offensive songs happen in other grounds every other week and nothing is said or done!
Sir Robert Kelly new how to stand up to these panty wetters and witch-hunters and we lack someone of his ilk.
I'm still ashamed and furious that our club stayed silent about TRIFC 2012 fiasco and jiggery-pokery pokery.

4.) 21 Jul 2017 18:20:40
db weeed out the nonsense? is this the same nonsense that gave u the 125 yrs tifo or the lisbon tifo (not a penny from celtic btw) carry out all the foodbanks collections raise money for palestine. back the team 100% home and away.

5.) 21 Jul 2017 18:22:01
DB92, please define nonsense, no point in going to the question and pulling you pants up at the last minute, as I said before, Prawn sandwiches you can get anywhere, here you get a club like no other, History Warts and all, but the warts belong to us and we should protect all.

6.) 21 Jul 2017 18:37:35
Pro-IRA banner. That. Is. All! Thankfully Uefa haven't said anything about the singing other night which went hand in hand with the singing. I'm all for the GB, they have made Celtic Park a party atmosphere and a better place but that banner was just daft. As soon as we all saw it we knew it was bad news for the club and well now for the fans.

7.) 21 Jul 2017 18:37:42
The stuff related to the club are usually brilliant! But the simple fact is the daft IRA chants and banners hold the club back and doesn't really belong within the stadium. Each to there own outside it, but it gives the reprobates something to talk about and makes the club an easy target. There's plenty of Celtic banners you can put up so why bother?

8.) 21 Jul 2017 18:39:38
Fact is, given the scrutiny around standing at matches these days any dangerous or unsafe behaviour is always going to be met with harsh treatment. I just hope it doesn't affect the team.

9.) 21 Jul 2017 18:40:37
First of all I would like to say that I really enjoy the GB but come on they must know its going to get the club into trouble with Some of the banners and the flairs so why do it UEFA won't stand for it the club can't fight it SO WHY DO It? It really does seem crazy to me when they do it at European games more so the flairs that is a definite no no and every one knows it so why do it as for some of the banners they must know some will get the club into bother again why do it if they know it will cause bother with UEFA I know I will get pelted for this but sometimes I feel they will not be happy until we have to play the home games behind closed doors then cry poor me as I said 90% off the time they are great for the club but seam to want to press the self destruct button now and then.

10.) 21 Jul 2017 19:03:26
if we all know what the banners are going to cause so do celtic, so why wasnt standing shut at the linfield . season books that's why.

11.) 21 Jul 2017 19:10:50
Tony2bhoy, what Load of BS, we are a club like no other. We have given focus to palistine, poverty in Europe, human rights, the occupation of Ireland, all through the behavior of the GB, tell me any other club who have achieved this, your answer will be None. So for me, we have proved our individuality, So we should not be bullied by people who seek to destroy our ability to deliver a profound message, whilst maintaining our principles on and off the park.

12.) 21 Jul 2017 19:15:11
The club reacted to dafties with IRA banners.
The club got punished for it.
So why should they keep letting it happen?

Stop acting like one of that lot with the conspiracy theories.

13.) 21 Jul 2017 19:22:01
Malika please enlighten me as to what the profound message of putting our managers face on a banner like that? I'd love to hear who u think benefits from a sheer act of idiocy?

{Ed007's Note - There was absolutely nothing wrong with the Brendan Rodgers banners and neither of them were included in the UEFA charge. The Celtic View have used the same road sign design themselves in the past btw.}

14.) 21 Jul 2017 19:39:46
Not everyone is going to agree on this. On one side we have those who will back the Green Brigade's right to fly the banner, regardless of the consequences. On the other we have those who feel that it was unwise as it would inevitably end with a UEFA sanction and fine.

We have given each other pelters on here over the last few days. I am guilty of getting involved myself, regrettably. I think we should move on and concentrate on the Rosenberg game. We need to stop giving the willing MSM and football authorities the ammunition to come at us and punish us. Pick your battles wisely.

15.) 21 Jul 2017 19:44:15
This banner type was used by Celtic View, featuring one of our players, I did not use this in my comments about delivering a profound view, I simply stated how we had raised awareness on issues like the occupation of Ireland, Palistine, poverty, and human rights, through the banners produced by the GB. Lh86,spend a little time on research of the Jungle, the GB, the foundation of this club, and then you might see where, I am comming from.

16.) 21 Jul 2017 19:44:21
How many times do they need told that flares are banned?
How many times do the club need to ask not to bring flares to Celtic park.
But all we hear from these idiots is NO PIRO NO PARTY.
People are making banners that they KNOW are going to get the club in trouble but don't care so the club had to do something.
Hopefully they take their warning and start towing the line because when they focus on supporting and celebrating Celtic they can be fantastic.

17.) 21 Jul 2017 20:00:46
Kev, normally I pay attention to your posts, but on this one you are off the mark, if we had towed the line, we would not be here today.

18.) 21 Jul 2017 20:20:21
Can someone tell me what was up with either of the banners?

19.) 21 Jul 2017 19:42:19
exactly ed

celtic are quick to take the plaudits of the same fans they are quick to condemn.

20.) 21 Jul 2017 20:23:13
Why were they not allowed their banners at a friendly against lyon which caused a walk out? But allowed them against a powder keg game? We had to switch game dates to suit anti Catholic hatred where that club and police couldn't guarantee our safety in the name of " culture" but Brendans undefeated army is unacceptable? ( I know there maybe an undelying reference ) but there was no wording/ offending slogans! Our player was pelted with coins n bottles, attempted attacks and Celtic come out this punished worse? get a grip.

21.) 21 Jul 2017 20:53:04
We have raised awareness of Palestine , poverty and human rights! Wtf is this a political movement? No it's a football club, if you want to fight these issues , join a political party or even better stand for election, hell I might even vote for you, but Celtic park is a place for people of all backgrounds, all political beliefs and all religions to come along support the club and watch football . What about the people who don't share your views or political beliefs, are you saying they are not welcome? Who are you to say that? And in turn ram your views down their throats.

22.) 21 Jul 2017 21:34:00
Correct move from Celtic UEFA will probably do the same the gb do and have put on great displays but they had no common sense with that banner surely they must have known the consequences the troubles are over and as a Belfast man I don't want them back.

23.) 21 Jul 2017 21:35:57
Lads nobody is disputing they put on great displays and add massively to the atmosphere in the stadium but enoughs enough! To put Brendan's face on a banner like that was bang out of order! For our best manager since MON to have to come out less than a week before a vital European tie to tell certain fans not to put up paramilitary banners is an absolute embarrassment!

And Welsh bhoy I totally agree they back the team but is it backing the club to constantly get us fines season after season? And what the hell has warts and all got to do with banners like that malika? Are u saying we should protect these half wits who put these things up? I actually Seen a few people online sayin if the green brigade get banned we should all not go! Are u having a laugh!

I'm here to watch and support my team, not hero worship certain fans who can't take a telling and think they run the place! I remember back in 1998 I went to my first game against the Huns, and we skelped them 5-1,I'd never experienced anything like it and the atmosphere was unbelievable! And guess what, there was no Green brigade in the stadium that nite!

This pish about they're the only ones who can create an atmosphere in paradise is exactly that, uttter pish! Our reputation for creating a unique atmosphere in paradise was there before them and will be there after them!

24.) 21 Jul 2017 21:36:01
Anyone of us that can't see the problems with pro ira banners needs a reality check honestly as someone said it's 2017 ok get a grip we all bang on about that lot fae govan with all there knuckle dragging but now some sections of paradise unvail a pro ira banners come on to feck really and don't started wae the well they done it first the green brigade are a joy to behold most of the time but that was way over the line hail hail.

25.) 21 Jul 2017 21:37:35
time for lawwell to stand down its overdue.

26.) 21 Jul 2017 21:38:24
We are a club like no other, yes but does that give us the right do as we want.
If I go thro life 99% of the time giving to charity and doing good to others and then I commit murder does that give me the right to get off? Ofcourse not and I know its an extreme but its the same principle.

A kid takes his mobile into an exam and gets it taken from him and branded a cheat cannot complain, he knows he is doing wrong BEFORE the act.
We all claim to be supporters so why would we do anything to harm the club?
Especially when its premeditated and been warned about it before.

We have got to wise up here and help our club not hinder it, not so long ago drink was acceptable at games and party songs were the norm aswell, as dare I say it racists taunts etc.

Nowadays we KNOW its unacceptable and cannot complain if anyone is caught doing so.
So again I implore our support, yes support the team but do it within the rules you are very aware of them BEFORE you do anything.
I ain't no pantywetter but I for the life of me can't see how any of this HELPS our club.

27.) 21 Jul 2017 21:41:21
All hail the Green brigade
Whether I agree with the sentiments or not I love the craic
I used to borrow my neighbors season book (skint) and was right beside them -awesome atmosphere
Everyone should get a grip
Why did people think it was ok to champion Palestine but not Ireland? Our heritage
Either way enjoy the show flags banners the lot
Here we go ten in a row.

28.) 21 Jul 2017 21:32:12
There are as many people at Celtic park that loathed the IRA as adored them, there are as many people at Celtic park Pro Israel as Pro Palestine, there are as many people at Celtic park with Conservative opinions as opposed to Liberal, etc. we are a club open to all, that has always been our advantage. When that banner went up on Wednesday my heart sunk, it doesn't matter whether you agree with it or not, anybody with half a brain knew it meant trouble.
We are a massive club worldwide, fighting against artificially cash rich clubs, our advantage is our reputation, history and the ability to be innovative.
To continue to compete on the level required we need to attract players and top managers like Brendan. Is this really helpful in that regard?
I go to Celtic park to support Celtic, not to be subjected to the latest political statement from a group of narcissists more interested in publicity than the welbeing of the club.
To be fair, at times they can be a real asset to the atmosphere but this flagrant disregard for authority and rules is now becoming tiresome. On this issue I support the stance taken by the board!

{Ed007's Note - When did this survey of the supports political beliefs and are you honestly saying if there was a collection for Israel amongst Celtic supporters it would smash through £100k?
Do these fans that loathed the IRA sing Grace at games or do they sit with their arms folded and a big petted lip tutting at other fans for glorifying the IRA? Remember Grace had Celtic Park rocking last season, you can't tell me that was a minority stuck in a corner that made that noise.
What about The Fields of Athenrye, is that too political for you? And finally why is the Club selling THIS CD with the political lyrics and overtones of Let the People Sing?}

Most of us are Celtic fans despise our Board . Instead of bending down to UEFA they should explain what steps they are going to take to try to get UEFA to see sense.
The banner was offensive to those who wanted to be offended . To say it has anything to do with IRA is merely putting your own interpretation.

Malika flares are banned in Scottish football as well as European football.
Have been for years. So if you take one to parkhead knowing your are getting the club in trouble you can't claim to have the club at heart.
As for political beliefs, football grounds are no longer the place to vent them.
The game has moved on from that along time ago. It's time to give it a break.
I go to support the team and clubs.

At the end of the day there is a right and a wrong piros are a diffenet wrong any idiot knows that so why use them at park head? As for SOME of the banners GB must know Celtic will get into bother So why display them? Should Celtic as a Football club just take the hit every time for something they didn't do themselves? Yes or No? As I said I like the GB but I wish they would think of the consequences of the action sometimes.

{Ed007's Note - I know, it's shocking - what idiot brought them in?



32.) 21 Jul 2017 22:01:23
been trying to keep quiet tonight as im raging at the club for the way its been handled, but have to say ed that is the best response i've heard from anyone across any forum tonight.
celtic want to use the irish history card when it suits the brand.

{Ed007's Note - And that's it in a nutshell. As long as it's Plastic Paddy with his leprechaun hat and shamrock T-shirt bought out the Club shop it's all fine and good.}

33.) 21 Jul 2017 22:10:53
Ed, I could ask you the same about surveys, if the survey was in my area the result would be far higher than 50% for my conclusion.
As for the song Grace, it is a fantastic song regardless of historical context, people sing and love songs for all types of reasons. Most people singing songs at games react to the tune and the reaction. The fields of Athenrye the same!
For your information I have sung all the songs and still do from time to time in the right company, but not at the games.
This is not a pissing contest, whether you like it or not there are rules and regulations we have to abide by and we didn't!
Many people at Celtic park have an affinity and sympathy with Ireland, that has to be respected and admired, but Scotlands foremost football club displaying paramilitary banners publicly!

{Ed007's Note - I can't believe you made me read that shite - historical context (facepalm)

34.) 21 Jul 2017 22:04:57
Ballochi, I do not believe that any Celtic fan could come out with such drivel, CP is renoun for exactly what you say, i. e. Fighting these issues, Because of how why and we're we were founded, and you are right Celtic Park is a place for all backgrounds, beliefs, and religions, that is part of the reason we are celebrated throughout the world. Football is the food of he masses, I am one of them, and Celtic are a Global leader in exemplary behavior on and off the field. I have never once shared any of my political beliefs on here, but my views on the actions of the club, I will comment on, in relation to preserving the values on which the club was founded. your "who are you" comment is quite reminiscent of the establishment which we got rid of when FmcC kicked out the Kelly's, and this is only a forum where people like me comment and do not ram anything down people's throats. So take it easy on the personal stuff, and stick to knowing the club, its values and history.

35.) 21 jul 2017 22:01:21
celtic and irish freedom the one same cause.

36.) 21 Jul 2017 22:10:04
Ed we have Irish roots the field's of athenrye is an Irish non offensive song released on CD in shops the solider song also but c'mon don't bring a banner of a fighter to Celtic park and also the singing has been more Celtic songs rather than republican songs lately than years gone by I love republican songs but when I go see Celtic play I want to sing Celtic songs it's the club I love and for that reason and respect for my fellow Celtic fans that don't want to hear or sing republican songs I'll listen to them at home Celtic park is a great place not a place for war.

37.) 21 Jul 2017 22:35:34
Ed, ? do you honestly think 60,000 people know the true history of the songs they sing from time to time, if you do I admire your naivety! and incidentally I have read and agreed with most of your opinions over the years, but in this case I fear we must disagree!

{Ed007's Note - That's not my naivety, that's their own stupidity. So back to these pro Israel Celtic supporters that are the same number as those opposed to their regime - how do you know this? The same amount of Tory voters as Labour or SNP, are you sure about that? That sounds like something you've made up to be honest and whether you have agreed with me on the past or not matters not a jot to me. I don't know you and don't care.}

38.) 21 Jul 2017 22:54:17
I still don't get what part the IRA played in the Club's history, in much the same way as I don't remember King Billy scoring a goal for Rangers. It should be left at the turnstile.

Chris you are being sarcastic, right? It was the Green Brigade logo in a Volunteer's military uniform, and a play on the 'Sniper At Work' sign potraying the manager. It wasn't some profound depiction of the Irish conflict. The subject wasn't subtle, it was designed to be deliberately provocative.

Some have no issue with it and others think differently.

Regardless of your opinion or stance on the message behind the images you could be sure of the fall-out. First up we are vilified in the press, next UEFA throw the rulebook at us, and lastly the Club takes a stance against those they hold responsible. It was only ever going to play out this way.

I have read all the arguments and counterarguments and it has been lively to say the least. There is not going to be a meeting of minds on this. It is livening up my Friday though.

{Ed007's Note - If UEFA don't have a problem with either the Brendan Rodgers' banners why does people in our support? It's called plagiarism and happens all the time, even the Celtic View have used it.}

39.) 21 Jul 2017 22:58:48
James as a Belfast Celtic man who lived throughout the troubles I can tell you Celtic and Irish freedom are two totally different things one is a joy which is Celtic the other was not knowing if your dad or mum was going to be safe going to work not knowing we're you going to be safe leaving your home not knowing we're your family going to be dragged out of your bed. people have lost love one's during those times and the joy of watching Celtic shouldn't be a reminder hh btw.

40.) 21 Jul 2017 23:01:41
remember as a young bhoy being told not to sing a song i didn't know or understand the meaning behind it . don't be naive and think that a large majority don't understand.

41.) 21 Jul 2017 23:07:12
Ed, and incidentally, its good to know that you are open to adult debate and not just propaganda!

42.) 21 Jul 2017 23:14:15
I think the issue is being overlooked should the GB have cart blanch to do what ever they feel right regardless of the consequences? And some actions that they know for sure will get Celtic in to trouble Is that OK regardless? Simple Yes or No? No agenda or political stance just Yes or No GB have some intelligent people in their I know they will know if it will get Celtic in to trouble or not.

43.) 21 Jul 2017 23:27:26
see its that attitude that gets my goat its not all the green brigade in that section yet they get the blame for everything . yes banner was theirs . can't say they wereblocking all the stairways or the only ones singing the other night.

44.) 21 Jul 2017 23:27:53
Granted Ed, I realise that UEFA would never have been able to call the Club to task on that particular banner from a legal standing. There was visually nothing in it, other than the chord it would have struck with those familiar with the original sign. I understand your point.

I remember the Club using the image before when it suited them. I am with you on that. I am also with you on the Paddywhackery they love to capitalise on at every opportunity.

Lastly, it would wrong to misinterpret my opposition to the banner/ s at the game to my opinion on the politics. As I said before though, I am happy to keep them seperate.

{Ed007's Note - I said the other night that the Oglach banner was stupid and the GB must have known it would draw attention and probably action but people have made a mountain out of a molehill considering the potential for trouble with the tie. The Club brought more charges during this tie than the fans did but everyone's banging on about a daft banner which really only offends if you if you want it to.
It could have been worse, we could have had a Gary Glitter lyric on a banner!}

45.) 22 Jul 2017 00:30:18
Old man Chris, maybe we are always bound to be protagonists, but if you are telling me you don't understand what was meant by the beret and the dark glasses in reference to the ira, then we grew up in different times.

46.) 21 Jul 2017 23:23:06
we have all had families this had happened to, irish republicans aren't only exclusive to belfast some of us just happen to belong to republican families who moved to scotland.

47.) 22 Jul 2017 00:49:13
Why is it misunderstood that it is people outside the club, that found that it's banner offensive, it is also people that support the club that found that banner offensive, that is why I asked what political correctness was (tongue in cheek) , it was nothing to do with political correctness, it was only political correctness to people who didn't know how it felt like to live through those days, some people would rather enjoy the peace than be reminded of the troubles.

48.) 22 Jul 2017 00:57:00
I don't think there will ever be agreement on this issue but for me one thing is sure, an eye for an eye makes everybody blind. Politics and Religion are always explosive issues and I don't think either have a place in football. with regards to the history of the club I'm not that old yet that I can remember its foundation or can pretend to know the political beliefs etc of Brother Walfrid but I assume that because he was a Marist Brother he would have been familiar with the Gospel which speaks of love etc. I have supported Celtic all my life and always will irrespective of banners etc but sometimes we can go too far.



19 Jul 2017 22:03:08
Maybe its just me and I am open to getting my head torn off here, but I was a little disappointed, they packed their box making everything very difficult, they are part timers and I expected them to run themselves out of steam and us to run them ragged and bang in 3 or 4 in the last 15mins, bu that did not happen, but onwards and upwards and we will be better for this next week.


1.) 19 Jul 2017 22:14:19
The moose isn't match sharp yet first off. Early days pre season for the second. Third. they never got out of their first "".
Didn't think it was too bad myself all things carefully considered. The mini's threw everything they had with every body. A bit better finishing it would of been a few more mate.

2.) 19 Jul 2017 22:26:29
Pitch was cutting up badly in places.

3.) 19 Jul 2017 22:50:55
When everyone is match fit and Ntchem settles in we will tear teams apart. there were some nice touches that just failed on the last pass. We will see much better next week especially against a team that will play more open and leave more spaces. At times they were playing with 7 across there 18yrd line
I also think Moussa and Ntchem will be very good together.

4.) 20 Jul 2017 00:12:21
Alf course the pitch is bound to cut up badly in places, it's only recently laid and has had to withstand some aweful down pours.

I am putting my hands up here, P Roberts is off on tour with city, my info was completely wrong, Sorry All.


1.) 17 Jul 2017 17:43:13
Fair play mate. I'm still hapoy to go along with the idea Paddy is not part of City's plans, being in a preseason squad doesn't mean that has changed. And until he sign for somebody else, I'm still quietly confident a deal could be done. It may depend on CL qualification (although I wouldn't agree with that way of thinking myself) .

2.) 17 Jul 2017 18:54:05
Nasri denayer also went . They will be nowhere near the squad so that's no yardstick really.

3.) 17 Jul 2017 20:04:41
Shock is not an emotion that many in here feel that the story was, let's say, ambitious.

With or without paddy we will get better.

Still hopeful though.

4.) 17 Jul 2017 22:57:53
We are not getting near Paddy. Man City will want big bucks for him and someone in PL will pay it and £60k a week to go with it. He will be sold.

@Honest, just wait, we will lash out between 6/ 7 million on a player, not PR ( say thanks to Paddy, but he is gone) Next tues he will be up for medical, and then we will all have a smile on our faces, trust me, I know.

Oh Bhoys you are worried, so sorry for that, sweeping statements like let them start a team in Ireland and they can all go there, are the particular forte of you guys, the GB are all nobs, is also one of your sweeping statements, both used by this group Tonight.

I hope I do not post utter guff, as I have always thought that I try to be direct reasonable and balanced in my comments on here over the yrs.
I wait for ballochi comments, don't you have his mobile number guys?
Let's hope that is the end of it. btw these are the first 2 posts in a while where you two have not posted any anti GB or Irish comments, so that is a good start.

Guys as I said in my original post on this subject, Sorry but I could not resist.
Tomorrow is Monday so I will get back to on pitch comments from then.
Lads you have no defense, they have caught you Hook, Line and Sinker, you have been used and abused by the dark side.

Mikko, thanks, no problems at all, just banter between all, who have the love of the club at heart, otherwise we would not be on here and all this would not bring out our emotions, it's great to feel such passion from everyone never mind the diversity of the opinions ( don't think I should be placed at any dinner table with some of our brothers on here, otherwise the soup might just go over)
But it is what it is and you are right, Anyone for football?

There is absolutely no provocation intended in my previous post, just simply trying to understand. I have made No Assumptions or statements on Political preferences of anybody. I Am not given to general sweeping statements, which seem to encompass a lot of the recent posts on here, your contentious attitude is very commendable and is indeed one of the reasons why I support CFC.
