jonace, surely it was our Brendan who spilt the beans to the press . He didn't demonstrate much integrity, talking to Scottish media re. Mc Ginn before AEK match.

Old man Chris

1.) 13 Aug 2018 00:13:37
He was asked a question! Funny how the press ask him but it's heads down n no awkward questions at them 🤣 get a grip omc 🙈.


2.) 13 Aug 2018 03:17:08
Brendan has signed 3 decent players, the rest shouldn't be at Celtic. His results in Europe are embarrassing and both Lennon and Strachan did much better. Brendan is in my opinion starting to think he is bigger than Celtic and if I'd have my way I'd thank him, let him leave and get Lennon back. I don't trust Brendan to spend wisely and I don't think the board do either.


3.) 13 Aug 2018 07:30:42
What utter drivel.

He signs Edouard, Morgan and Bain during the summer and you say the board don’t trust him? They missed out on McGinn, yeah it’s a bit of a sore one but highly doubt that it’s down to them not trusting him.

We should be looking forward and hoping we get through tomorrow night.

Lennon would be a complete step back.


4.) 13 Aug 2018 07:46:21
Also, don’t think for a second that he thinks he is bigger than the club, however I do think he believes Celtic are bigger than what we allow ourselves to be and should match his ambition. He wants to compete in Europe yet has that defence to deal with? He has done since he came in, with the exception of Hendry and Gamboa, I won’t even include Comperr as he has hardly kicked a ball. Hendry is still to show that he is up to it and hell knows what’s going on with Gamboa but that’s up to BR to make the call.

Sinclair was player of the season in his first year, BR can’t be at fault for him losing form.

Moussa has been a great signing regardless of injury.

Edouard looks the real deal.

Ntcham is getting better week, in week out.

Morgan need to see what happens with him.

Bain looks a tidy addition.

Comperr is a total dud.

Kouassi looks total gash.

Gamboa shows promise but that’s compared to Lustig, something must have happened with him.

Musonda was a disaster.

Hayes long term injury.

Roberts long term injury.

You could go through each managers term and see who they signed that were good / bad.


5.) 13 Aug 2018 08:22:28
Yeah the Celtic plc have a rich history of not buying when in the postion of strength. Still some cover up for them. How Brendan is getting the blame is unbelievable. It's like people don't actually follow Celtic but will make a comment anyway.


6.) 13 Aug 2018 10:11:50
If this was a one of situation regarding standing still then maybe you could see the point of the board defenders. Sadly, it’s not. It’s a pattern that has been repeated all of my life as a supporter. Waiting until this stage and still no new players for our awful defence is nothing short of incompetence.

McGinn was a symptom of this approach. Dithering, penny pinching ego trip from Lawell. Boyata, first chance he gets wants away, didn’t anybody see that coming? He’s now shamefully pulled the bad back card to miss the ganecagainst AEK and we are without Ajer too. Hendry isn’t the answer and to rely on him is unfair tonys and the boy himself.

We could be out against a team we are better than, or should have been if we had got players in early. There is no guarantees in football except if you stand still you go back. If we crash out then the blame for that to me lies at the boardroom.

After a double treble, CL money, season tickets sold and a waiting list they had no excuse for them to continue the dithering cheapskate approach. Every now and again I start to believe we will move on and get quality in to sort it at least improve us defensively. Again and again this proves to be a pipe dream. Blaming Rogers for thecsutuation we are in is ridiculous. He gave them a list, they gave him nothing to help us qualify. That’s the scandal here.

Saturdays team selection was wrong and showed we need more qualitybwhen we leave out first team players.

I actually still think we can beat this mob but it will be all the more difficult due to having to take them in weaker than we finished last year. That’s not on and if we do crash out I am clear in my mind where the responsibility for that lies and it ain’t at Rogers door. If he had signed a couple of Comper’s again then he would have been het but he has not one addition.

Another self inflicted blow. To go on the shelf with the countless others where our boards fear of investing when in front derails us. We have a fight this year for the first time, and failing to tool up for it is a dereliction of duty. £60m down the drain through complacency is a farce. Trying to deflect that failure onto Rogers is avoiding the real historical truth about the lack of balls our boards have always had.

Lawell more than most must be hoping for a result. His strategy is front and centre and he bares the ultimate responsibility as he is the man who makes the deals, or in his case, hasn’t. Poor judgement. A final thought, had McGinn been in instead of the more expensive Kouassi would have been better and anybody who disagrees with that is kidding themselves on.


7.) 13 Aug 2018 13:29:34
Fantastic post Majic that won't go down well with the far to 'faithful through and through brigade'anyone who is surprised at this board must have been in hiding for many a year
HH.


8.) 13 Aug 2018 14:34:46
Can't believe how quick some people are to stick a knife in Brendan. Shame on you. HH.


9.) 13 Aug 2018 19:33:22
Can’t believe some of the pish being posted on here. Seems there are many who are even more gullible than the sevvies. The orcs have the guts of 20 million in shareholder loans, a TOP share order to sort out, an investigation into the application for a UEFA licence, they can’t sell their new humming shirts, a squad full of dross, an under 18s manager and yet all the Scottish press can talk about is our lack of additions to a squad that has won every domestic competition put in front of them. On top of that, Brendan came out on Saturday and said there was no issue between him and the board and he is loving every minute of the job. Wake up, you’re falling for this rubbishe hook, line and sinker. We’re in a better place than we’ve been for a long time.


10.) 13 Aug 2018 20:59:51
Remember when this was a transfer rumours page,2-2 tomorrow, Forrest, Eddy.


11.) 13 Aug 2018 21:04:48
Eddy supposed to be unfit for tomorrow, Griffiths and Forrest.


12.) 13 Aug 2018 23:05:24
Some people reckon that some of our better buys were from P L and son .
I wonder who was responsible for Musonda, I know many on here were very excited at the thought we were getting him .
One quick glance at him and I who would be far from an expert, thought he was far to lights& under developed.
I don't know how anyone could stand over spending money on loan for him.


13.) 14 Aug 2018 00:05:51
can mcginn play at centreback?

nah

get over him and move on

We all slated Boyata - then he has a few good games, plays against engerland at worldcup and now he wants away - Jozo - inconsistent, injury prone and can't play on plastic. Ajer and Hendry - too young and a risk playing together. comperr just no. This is where we MUST strengthen and NOW. Our defence is and has been a nightmare in waiting. I know this, you know this, Brendan knows this, the board knows this - so why have they not bought anyone ready to go.

we never have and never will splurg on players - so mcginn/ midfielder was always a no for me - UNTIL defence was sorted.

yeah armstrong away - we have christie and allan back - both spl quality. Roberts wasnt getting a game over forrest.


14.) 14 Aug 2018 18:42:56
Only a thorough bred person would talk about signing McGinn before Kuoassi . Now I know P L was slow bringing McGinn over the line and maybe guilty of believing reports of McGinn only signing for Celtic. I am pretty sure we had Kuoassi bought a full year before losing out on McGinn.


 

 

10 Aug 2018 22:35:41
D D is too shrewd to make a public intervention, the chances are that if DD does step in, he will be telling B R to pack his bag .
D D doesn't like personal criticism and criticism of Board he takes personally.

Old man Chris

1.) 10 Aug 2018 23:15:06
D. D can bolt and play golf full time.


2.) 10 Aug 2018 23:17:44
DD should pack his own bags BR has done more for Celtic in 2 years than that man ever will.


3.) 11 Aug 2018 08:14:34
Stan it was that man, as you put it, that brought BR and Oneil in. So again your wide of the mark.


4.) 11 Aug 2018 08:55:02
In your opinion i am Kev, not so much to others. So DD being the largest shareholder decides who our Manager is? The rest of the Board have no day? nonsense, what gives him that right? Anywho i couldn't care less about DD i won't die remembering anything he has done for Celtic.


5.) 11 Aug 2018 09:01:29
He got BR and O'Neill yet the rest, Lenny, Mowbray, Strachan, Deila he's no taking any credit for? Did he leave that decision making to the Board? Aye right. More flaws than Braveheart.


 

 

04 Jan 2018 23:50:50
Its amazing to think we have bought one centre half this window and will have to buy at least one more . In my opinion over the last couple of years we seemed to buy a number of what appeared at the time to be quite good centre halves, Eric, Boyota, Jozo and young Ajer but really apart from Ajer, who we are still not sure about and maybe Boyata who we are less sure about, they haven't progressed. Buying players can be such a gamble.

Old man Chris

1.) 05 Jan 2018 00:52:26
Erik is the best centre half we half imo. but unfortunately he had to play beside efe in the early BR days. an injury has stopped him changing opinion.


2.) 05 Jan 2018 15:18:42
If u think that lump of wood is our best cb, then it shows how much we are lacking quality in the cb postion.


3.) 05 Jan 2018 16:37:12
I cannot agree that Erik is out best CH, bhoy1der. I don't even think he's our third best. Flustered and nervy far too easily, gets pulled about and bullied too much for my liking and struggles with pacy forwards. Nice big guy, but I think Ajer is already far better than Erik. HH🙂.


4.) 06 Jan 2018 01:29:47
have to agree. met and chatted with him several times and he is a decent guy. For BRs system he is too wee, too slow, his bottle and desire went a long time ago. Best thing for him is to move on now and start again after us blocking so many of his transfers in the past. Best of luck to him and I'm sure he will do a turn for another team somewhere.

Madden gets some - sort of punishment as he has been appointed for a Non SPL match for this weekend.
McKenna has belatedly been offered a two match ban for the scissors tackle so extreme that it appears it is only used against Celtic.

Our panty wetting fans who would prefer to fault some of our players than ridicule the referees and assistants in our bigoted anti Celtic Country will no doubt come out with another excuse for Madden, hair in the eye or something.

Old man Chris

1.) 03 Oct 2018 22:33:56
The paranoia on here is incredible 😂 the people who run our game are hopeless and so are our referees, nothing more, not biased just hopeless. Jesus!


2.) 04 Oct 2018 00:52:38
Jazz. Who told you Scottish referees are hopeless and not incompetent, was it the Daily Record?


3.) 04 Oct 2018 07:53:43
Jazz a was sitting in the north stand upper and saw it was an assault bro Bob was 5 to 10 yards away and saw zero. strange that.


4.) 04 Oct 2018 10:58:38
OMC, I watch plenty of Scottish football to make my mind up on referees, don't need that rag to do it for me.
Mally, that's my point the ref was 5 yards away and didn't see it, he should be demoted to the lower leagues as he's useless.


5.) 04 Oct 2018 11:49:23
Jazz that's correct but that's not paranoia in this instance it's reality. there's no way he didn't see the severity of that challenge but chose to do nothing . why?


6.) 04 Oct 2018 12:36:19
Jazz, I have to question why Madden had to usher French Eddy off the pitch in the shortest possible route and then 10 minutes later he allowed an Aberdeen player (might have been Stevie May) to meander his way from our penalty area to the half way line for treatment. I’ve seen me walking in a more straight line at midnight on paddy’s day. My point is these inconsistencies suggest something more than incompetence.


7.) 04 Oct 2018 13:51:05
COYBIG, for me the ref is being inconsistent and there is no more to it. I watched livi v sevco on Sunday and near the end of the game sevco made two penalty claims, non were penalties and the ref got both decisions right, if there was some kind of bias going on against us then sevco would have escaped with at least a draw. This is the same ref that some on here think make deliberate bad decisions against us, really?


8.) 04 Oct 2018 16:11:28
Said it for years Jazz. The refs are just pap.


9.) 04 Oct 2018 16:24:33
Jazz, as you see plenty of Scottish football and are not influenced by the daily record then you must be a poor judge of referees characters.


10.) 04 Oct 2018 18:42:01
Omg, maybe I am a poor judge, but I'm not paranoid, your question earlier of how the ref ushered Fren h Eddy of quicker than the Stevie May is beyond paranoia, you honestly can't believe that can you?


11.) 04 Oct 2018 19:04:35
Ok Jazz, it’s difficult for either of us to be sure about the situation with officials as we’re both expressing opinions. We’ll never be able to prove one way or another and I’m not going to say that every bad decision is a result of bias but if you look at the extremes, the McGregor incident at Celtic Park is the most blatant example you can imagine of a wrong decision and it wasn’t just the referees decision that was wrong, the compliance officer failed to see anything wrong with it. Even Slippy G acknowledged it. For me, that goes beyond an honest mistake and there’s a whole host of similar incidents stretching back for years and I think that the club and the supporters should challenge it at every opportunity otherwise it’ll only get worse.


 

 

02 Oct 2018 13:59:09
This weekend puts another difficulty in the way of Brendan and Peter ( if we still have ) that combination hiring good players cheaply .
If players or agents, see tackles like McKenna's on Saturday they are unlikely to come to Celtic, especially when they realise that tackles like Saturday are not completely unique in Scotland.

Old man Chris

1.) 02 Oct 2018 14:09:42
Wow that has to be the worst single fish I've read on here yet😂😂.


2.) 02 Oct 2018 14:34:52
The only thing stopping us signing players is reluctance on spending money not tackles or referees, I wouldn't give our board anymore excuses not to improve our team.


3.) 02 Oct 2018 15:43:33
Chris you talk p*sh most of the time but the post has to be your worst.


4.) 02 Oct 2018 15:43:37
Now that's paranoia at its finest malky.


5.) 03 Oct 2018 13:51:09
These comments from the regular persons on the forum lift my heart . I just love the twisted mentality of some people who claim to be fans, who would rather blame everyone connected with our club, Celtic, than the cheating racist masons and orange men who referee our games under instruction to cheat . The fact that the compliance Officer has had days to view Mc Kenna's tackle and has decided that because it was a Celtic player who was recipitent of the assault meant that it was fair enough, should demonstrate that it isn't safe to be a Celtic player in Scotland.


 

 

28 Sep 2018 13:41:34
Great to have a 3pm kick off at Celtic Pk on the traditional day Saturday
Let us use it to support and encourage all Celtic players, especially Boyata, who needs support just now .
Let us all remind ref Madden, that we don't like his normal cheating.

Old man Chris

1.) 28 Sep 2018 14:33:34
Why should we "especially" support boyata? A man who doesn't want to be here and had a hissy fit which makes our chances of success a little bit more in the balance. Tomorrow support the team to the hilt not an individual would be more appropriate.


2.) 28 Sep 2018 18:46:13
Careful Jim you'll be tarred as a boyata basher.


3.) 28 Sep 2018 19:52:12
When you have a rogues gallery that includes:- Madden, Beaton, McLean, Thomson, Collum, Clancy and baby Dallas.
You can guarantee honest mistakes and dodgy decisions every week.


4.) 28 Sep 2018 21:53:42
Jim 1972. Boyata has been our best centre half this season and as we arn't sure if having him next year, I thought we should try to encourage him to stay, it's hard enough trying to sign a good centre half and because of that we should do our best to keep one when we have one .
He suffered from a hissy fit from Beaton on Wednesday and bad decisions against Celtic is now the norm in Scottish football most fans will forgive him should he over stepped the mark on Wednesday . I didn't see or hear what he said and so I can't judge him, but I saw Beaton's face &he certainly wasn't demonstrating love and understanding .
Jim you probably didn't notice but I said to support all the players.


5.) 29 Sep 2018 08:47:24
Still a Judas that should never wear the jersey.


6.) 29 Sep 2018 10:36:13
Chris there are times you have to accept things and drop the paranoia. Boyata had a hissy fit the ref was right to send him off no Celtic players complained about it including our captain who beating spoke to before changing to a red card, the manager said he was given enough chances not to get sent off but ignored them, and he doesn't want to sign a new contract. He's only playing because he's fit and the best of an average lot.


7.) 29 Sep 2018 14:21:20
Jim, I don't know and I suspect you don't know what Boyata said or did . I can't believe that no one else this decade hasn't done as bad as him but none got straight red.
Ryan Jack said W Collum should retire after our game against Rangers2012.
The compliance officer didn't see anything wrong with that . Gerrard said refs cheated Rangees2012 for years . To say a ref is a cheat is as bad as it can get .
Gerrard wasn't questioned by compliance officer .
So I wonder what terrible thing Boyata said?
Even if he did go over the top, it isn't the role of Celtic supporters to punish him, are job is to help him back by encouraging him to play the football he is capable of.


 

 

05 Sep 2018 22:54:19
Many of our negative fans blame Lawwell for all the woes at Celtic .
Facts are Lawell is carrying out the will and the budget set by the Board and he has done a damn good job of it . He has surprised us often by how much he can get for players who insisted on moving on and also regularly brings in players at prices that appear very cheap.

What effects our club the most is the angry self seeking fans by their negative posts. On Celtic forums or by their abuse from our stands, both destroy some of our players confidence and certainly show no sign that they are Celtic supporters and support all the players .
It's amazing how well Boyata is playing, by playing in the World Cup he found his confidence and has played superbly in his 3 games . He looks the real deal as a centre half, we never seen that form before as Boyata had many fools giving him shoite.

Old man Chris

1.) 06 Sep 2018 01:37:35
Completely agree Chris. Despite the size of our club, our opportunities to generate revenue are severely hampered by the fact that we operate in a league outwith the elite club of countries who benefit from UEFA and the television companies vision of the future of football. Celtic nevertheless punch above our weight both on and off the field and Peter Lawell has overseen that performance for the last 15 years. He’s as important to Celtic as BR in my opinion.


2.) 06 Sep 2018 01:43:19
Another point regarding ‘fools giving him ‘shoite’. I’m continually hearing people criticising our defence generally. We had three defenders playing in the World Cup in the summer, two of whom made the last eight. There are probably very few teams in the world that are in that position and none of those players are even our best defender.


3.) 06 Sep 2018 06:56:53
I can't really see how having a grumble "effects your club the most. " Even the weather effects the club more than that.


4.) 06 Sep 2018 07:21:55
Yip it's all those big bad Celtic fans fault. The one's who pay to watch their team. Follow them regardless of any mistakes made.

It was our fault Boyata and Dembele spat the dummy out.
It was our fault we had a nightmare in the transfer market.

If you want to be a board apologists fair enough but don't blame the fans.

Celtic plc are only babysitting Celtic it's our club and we have every right to question them. Some have a cheek saying the people are gullible.


5.) 06 Sep 2018 09:19:36
On the Boyata front, I've heard his Agent was the main instigator in trying to get Boyata to leave. He was badly adviced and is looking for a new Agent. Yes in doesn't take away his part in the Saga but if he keeps playing the way he has, I'll be be more than happy if he signs a new contract.
PS I hate International Breaks!


6.) 06 Sep 2018 14:40:41
one win against a terrible hun side and all of a sudden Lawwell is god again?

It's like Kim Jong-Un, the guy can do no wrong.

Lets just totally gloss over the fact that if "they" didn't die, Lawwell could not afford to underspend and still win the league.

For example we would have lost the league last season in which we were poor. Lennon done well for us but was still lucky after they died. Deila as well.

Lawwell took over in 2003, they died in 2011. In those 9 seasons Celtic won 5 titles. They won 4.

They had just won 3 titles in a row against us before going bust. Lawwell had lost the grip on domestic dominance built on the Oneill era.

These are just facts, so anyone trying to argue with them is just at it.


7.) 06 Sep 2018 16:48:12
There is no Doubt Lawwell has done great for our club and is still doing a great job for our club but in my opinion negotiating to bring in payers he is not good at and IMO he should take a step to the side on that matter and give it to some one ealse.


8.) 06 Sep 2018 17:05:49
Tesla369 in those 9 years your banging on about it's been discovered that rangers had been using illegal tax avoidance schemes and would not have been able to compete with us without them.

They're chairman and manager's all admitted to that.


9.) 06 Sep 2018 17:46:16
That’s complete nonsense Chris, the fact remains that Celtic have an enormous amount of money in the bank, are making record breaking profits and sponsorship deals, selling players for fortunes.
The deficiencies in defence has been there for years, and I don’t want to see £m in bank or profits, I want to see good football on the park.


10.) 06 Sep 2018 17:49:11
Things are what they are. Surely we have all made mistakes Boyatas mistake was employing a greedy greedy agent who wrongly advised him. He apologised. With all that has gone on yes we expected things differently however things don't always go to plan. I have ad feeling that no matter what we had done if different some folk would still find stuff to complain about, it's some people's nature and of course their right to voice their concerns.

It would be good though putting all different opinions aside if for the short term we all just supported the team, if BR puts them on the park that's good enough for me. BR and the board inc Lawell have given us what we have had over the last two seasons let's not be so quick to forget.

Even then some were still very very vocal about things they were unhappy about after a double treble. It's fair to say I think some criticism is way over the top but that's just my opinion which is in no way more valid than those who disagree. We are all after all Celtic supporters faithful through and through.


11.) 06 Sep 2018 19:17:47
Does everyone that's shouting about deficiencies in defence realise that we have signed 4 defenders and 2 goalkeepers in 2 years. The reason we have deficiencies in defence lie at the gaffer and the recruitment teams door.


12.) 06 Sep 2018 20:04:44
Sitting here on my balcony on my mid season break😎 and nothing changes, Teslas still spouting Shiite. Why did they die? Does it not enter your head they died trying to match us on the park I. e spending money they didn't have between 2003 and 2012.


13.) 06 Sep 2018 20:30:49
I’ve had no issue with Lawell, the board, the manager or anyone else at the club whether it was before or after the Sevco game. Making a profit is a good thing. Having cash reserves is also a good thing. The concept of spending money because you’ve got it is akin to a wee boy going into a sweet shop, putting all his money on the counter and asking the shopkeeper what he can get for that. Rangers had this approach to running their club/ company and it didn’t end well. To suggest that a club who has just won every domestic trophy put in front of them for the last two years and has just broken their incoming and outgoing transfer records and has allegedly refused offers in excess of £10M for several of their players, has a problem with their recruitment is just fekin ridiculous. There has been a ridiculous media campaign ever since slippy arrived in Glasgow and whether or not you read the Scottish press or not, everyone comes into contact with those that do and when you hear this nonsense being regurgitated day after day, the more gullible among us start to believe it and the lie gathers momentum. Celtic are in great shape and PL and the board are to be congratulated for that.


14.) 06 Sep 2018 21:01:09
Well said COYBIG 👏👏.


15.) 06 Sep 2018 22:28:48
Stevie are you claiming Lawwell has done a good job this season?

despite the fact that we have downsized to the point we can't even beat AEK Athens who have a terrible budget in comparison.


16.) 06 Sep 2018 22:37:20
I'm hoping the game last week gave the team a reset. We looked sharp early pre season. The media and club troubles took a sharpness from us when we needed it. We should of moved more on in this window fringe player wise. Should of addressed problem areas quicker. We have made some very capable additions but i think we could of and should of been more aggressive. The facts are that even our fringe players are starters for other teams in the division. Which is fine. It's not pushing forward and bringing the 4players that will keep the first 11 on their toes. Eddy is a starter. Benkovic could be. The rest are good back ups that will do us a turn. I really rate mulumbu and Morgan looked exciting but bar injuries I can't see them as first picks if our cms and wingers are on it. I'm a greedy b@st##d but my heart is in the right place and I'm not alone in my thinking. The lads that are here have my full backing and there will be a hunger in the squad to push on, of that I'm sure.


17.) 07 Sep 2018 00:11:37
What is AEK Athens budget, Tesla?


18.) 07 Sep 2018 00:28:02
Tesla, only a fool would judge a CEO over a club's transfers over one season . Also P L doesn't do the whole work regarding transfers . At least 2 or 3 other people at Celtic have a major role in getting players in .
John McGinn is probably the player most people think of when they are considering the transfer window just past . Now I am led to believe that Petrie the Hibs Chairman vowed that PL at Celtic would never sign another player after P L signed Bains from Dundee when he was already on loan to Hibs .
Sometimes there can be a reason why certain things don't happen . All I know that if we really started protesting about wanting P L out, we as a club would be weaker, there is strength in unity . Of course we want improvement, we should try to improve the whole club.

COYBIG. that is perhaps the best analogy with kids in a sweetie shop. We have started to become like our neighbours in that we are demanding what actually might be not there. Two trebles, still in europe, in perhaps a competition where we don't face a 500 mill strike force and can compete. Defence failure is definitely a mystery to me, but their stevie g train is like a politicians soundbite. substanceless.


20.) 07 Sep 2018 11:03:42
Name the 4 defenders and 2 goal keepers kev, as well as fees.
Some signings don’t work out, but your thinking is we just stick with the dross, there has been plenty money brought in that more than covers the bad buys that have been made.


21.) 07 Sep 2018 11:36:40
I’m afraid I don’t buy the defence failure line. Yes we have lost goals very cheaply in some games, mainly in Europe it has to be said where sadly there is no longer a level playing field but I’ll concede we have lost a couple of howlers in domestic competition as well. The point is that every team at every level loses cheap goals at times, Slippy G will testify to that. I make no apology for harking back once again to the fact that three separate international managers consider our defenders good enough to play at a World Cup so I think there may be substantial room for debate about how strong/ weak they are. As far as the Stevie G revolution goes, this is just comedy gold. As you mention Bribhoy, sound bites and unsubstantiated nonsense printed and re-printed by lazy talentless hacks are being lapped up by the persons who are so desperate for anybody to come in and be their saviour that they’ll believe almost anything and ignore all the really serious problems that exist at the club/ company, and these problems aren’t just going to go away. There are more good times ahead.

Place is full of board apologists.


23.) 07 Sep 2018 18:55:29
I have never come across a sane person who is a Board apologist .
I have frequently came across persons who blame board members for all Celtic woes .
Those of us who were born in the '40's 50's 60's or 70's are fully aware off what
Fergus Mc Cann achieved with Celtic, idiots booed Mr McCann and actually disgraced the good name of the Celtic supporters . McCann took over the club when Scotland's anti Celtic Society tried to close us down and built the club stadium and team t the best in the Country . Thankfully he is now feted by everyone connected to Celtic as one of Celtic's all time greats.


24.) 07 Sep 2018 20:32:15
Yeah what a hero walking away with millions of the Celtic fans money. Mind you he's a massive Celtic man he's at the games all the time.


25.) 07 Sep 2018 21:24:13
Happyhoopy didn't some posters on here think u were a Rangers2012 fan?
Of course Happy hoopy knows plenty of Celtic supporters living in Canada and aged between late 70's or early 80's who attend Celtic home games on a regular basis.


26.) 07 Sep 2018 21:39:39
Yeah he's been in Canada all his life and always been that age. He was a member of the same supporters bus my uncle run in Croy. Very rarely went to games. Left owing them money.

Yeah I have been accused of being a support of the dark side. As I've said I will meet anyone at any game and prove my Celtic credentials.

You mentioned people remember what Fergus done. If he had built the training ground which he said would happen if all targets were meet I wouldn't begrudge him. All targets were meet no training.

For the first time in his Celtic career so far Brendan is maybe reaching a crisis point in his management .
Thursday he must qualify for Europa League by drawing nil all or winning .
Sunday's game against the noisy Ibrox club is a must win also. Brendan and his players must put the Young pretender Gerrard and his mob in their place by beating Rangers2012 again .
B R the transfer window will be closed, no point in talking about whether we are stronger than last season or not .
Our transfers or lack of them have two sides to story, bad buys in January, B R choices and lack of activity in this window P L fault . Whatever the reason we will be where we are on Sunday and will have best squad in Scotland.

Best squad in Scotland? Not if we get beaten on Sunday. Best squad means not a lot. They have to perform and right now they are not doing that. If BR gets turned over by SG he can forget top job in EPL. They will go for SG. BR needs to win on Thursday and Sunday.


2.) 29 Aug 2018 07:22:36
imo Liverpool have already bookmarked SG for the next managers job, IF, he proves himself at sevco.
Man City basically are happy to see Celtic as a club they can send their bench-warmers to get some game time and be assessed further.
Liverpool, because of the SG connection, are now doing the same with sevco.
It's like JS going to Dunfermline and Hibs to cut his teeth in management.

How could some persons of fans expect Hendry to play well with their reaction to him
Some persons even say his confidence is gone . I wonder who is to blame for that?
Whether Hendry can play or not isn't any of our business, he plays, if selected, for our team and if we want our team to win we should encourage and support the whole team .

I think it is great that James Forrest, one of own, with the club since his early Primary School days, despite regularly getting abuse from loud mouth fans who should know better, James Forrest has become one of our most important players and well deserves his new deal . Thank you James for what you have contributed so far.

So many comments about so much nonsense.
It is true Brendan Rodgers will leave, the question is what year?
Moyes for manager, never, he will never be manager of Celtic, Dermot Desmond wouldn't have him near the place.

Bhampot, The idea of Celtic having a house all sounded out for Moyes bring our paranoia to a new level . The image of Lawwell or Desmond bugging their manager's house with a listening device .

That makes a lot of sense Ed 007 .
I cannot understand Rodgers having a problem with Lawwell,
Lawwell is Lawwell and he should have known what he was like as BR has a life long love of Celtic ( so he keeps telling us )

Jazz, as you see plenty of Scottish football and are not influenced by the daily record then you must be a poor judge of referees characters.

The problem withMurrayfield is that the groundsmen will have already started to let the grass grow long for Scotland's Home Autumn Internationals that start early in November.

Kevbhoy . I think it is something to do with the height of the bottom one, two or three rows of the stand . UEFA advertising boards are far higher than our normal advertising and so we have to keep bottom rows empty so as to not block the views of fans .

It shows how poor the fare is at Old Trafford when TV viewers are watching the seating arrangements for fans and not follow the game.

Malkybhoy, not much point in you telling us now you are a better right back than Lustig who has been probably our best defender for the last 5 years . Malky u are too late we cannot register you now for the Euro League matches.
