Do you think we will try to get McCarthy and/ or attempt to sign Patrick Roberts on a permanent deal in this window before the CL qualifiers Ed?
Personally, I would be delighted with that kind of ambition and financial commitment from the board - or are we looking at other areas, like a younger keeper or defender?

{Ed007's Note - It's really between Celtic and Newcastle for McCarthy but there's a very slim chance of him being used as part of a package for Kone from Sunderland whom Everton want - but I'll be surprised if that happens considering Sunderland look certainties for relegation.
Celtic are looking to extend Roberts loan for another 12 months and that can be agreed at any time.}

Obviously going to miss the Bhoys over the next few weeks as they take a very well earned break but what a special parting gift.
This is not the best Celtic team I have ever seen, but what we have here is a manager and players that know exactly what's expected and demanded every single game and this kind of consistency and team spirit has not been seen at Celtic for many years.

To be unbeaten after twenty league games - with a cup in the cabinet on NYE is almost unheard of and any other team would have probably had a New Years honour lol - but to win every single league game in such a demanding December schedule will go down as one of the clubs greatest triumphs.

There were some tired players out there yesterday with a few defensive lapses at times, but the way the team came back and outplayed the home team after an early setback was an indication of the confidence and superiority that epitomises Celtic today.

What's more is that BR is still building and improving the team and there is much more to come - and it feels absolutely fantastic!

Just a quick thank you Ed 007 for supplying and managing this fabulous site allowing us to comment, opinionate and exchange all things Celtic for another year.
I wish you, your family and all my fellow posters and contributors a very happy and peaceful new year.
Well done to BR and the squad on an absolutely outstanding first half of the season and many, many brilliant memories.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks very much. Happy New Year to you and your family.}

It's extremely difficult to find fault or complain during such a fantastic run with so much consistency and total dominance; but when we can put most of these chances in the pokey and capitalise with goals from all these corners and set pieces - we are going to win games by double figures - maybe starting Hogmanay?

Watching the CL highlights show reminded me of what a horrendous draw we had and how rigged it is to practically ensure the super rich and powerful more of the same.
I know we had a mixed bag of results, but there is absolutely no doubt there were some very good individual and team performances over the six games and if we can add quality in key positions and keep the best players we have, we will improve.
The key to success in Europe is putting away chances when they come along and obviously keeping clean sheets, so it's easy to see where existing players need to improve or better ones need to come in.
Domestic success is always very important and we all enjoy the trophies and glory, but because of our location and TV revenue disadvantages, we need CL regularly to make the money to improve quality and attract the best players we can afford and with a kinder draw in the future, we could really compete in the group stage.

Just watched the under nine teens throw away a HT 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 at Man City. Definitely a game of two halfs where we were much the better team in the first 45 but whatever was in the HT Bovril affected both teams in extremely opposite ways!
This 'away hoodoo' in Europe seems to run right through the club and the sooner it's broken the better- probably next season though lol.

That's a very strong team and maybe not too far from Saturday's line-up, give or take and barring injury.

Commons has a reputation at previous clubs for being disruptive and temperamental. BR obviously knew he would not fit into the work ethic or systems he prefers and it's better all round that KC moves on - either in stages or a clean break when it is convenient for both parties.

I agree we will rarely see both strikers together, but I think there will always be more attack-minded midfield players in BR's teams - especially domestically.

I saw the Ed's comments last week about how disruptive and selfish Commons has been and I am bemused as to why he is still at the club, while a good few others have been shown the door already.
I appreciate players can refuse to leave, run down their contract and be obtrusive, but if it's true he is in the squad then, there must have been some sort of compromise?

That's a great point Ed; I hope once BR has his feet under the table a wee while and gains some clout he can get shot of Park - although he seems to have the ear (and fountain pen) of PL and will take some shifting.

{Ed007's Note - We're linked with him every window and I don't believe for a minute that he would be on any list of potential targets that Rodgers would have in mind.}

Like Henderson and would prefer him to McGregor and Bitton but he hasn't seemed to impress BR or even the previous manager, so he must not be projecting or applying himself in training etc.
However if we are looking at CL standard signings he may well have to go out on loan or sadly for me - leave Celtic.

Seem to remember Sean Connery doing the same kinda thing (in reverse) . I had a 'wee green book' in the sixties and he was posing with the Lions, big jock and the Kelly's. Then when we were struggling, he was aw palsy walsy with David Murray and EBT Utd.

It would be almost like fantasy football manager if we could sign Roberts and McCarthy and bolster the defence with a CL standard right back and younger keeper?
Today showed the class Roberts brings to the team even when he makes 'cameo' appearances and even though Bitton had a stroll in the park against the wee rovers - imagine the difference in pace and potency with McCarthy in his place alongside Brown and Armstrong.
We really do have the makings of something special here when you add Sinclair, Dembele, Rogic and Tierney.

Think the break came at just the right time for a few of the players although the fighting spirit and determination shown so far in the season has been absolutely fantastic.

Although our momentum has been stalled, not only do we have guys coming back from injury, but others have had a chance to shake off niggles and knock and recharge and as long as we maintain concentration and play as we can, the players could go on and make even more Celtic history

They have no class, honesty, integrity, morals or shame. Apart from that they're ok.
