Morning ED what's the chances of Griff making the bench on Sunday?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - None.}

1.) 06 Mar 2018 12:16:31
What team do u think he will put out will there be a surprise or two? Surprise being switching Forrest to the left and starting Roberts?

{Ed007's Note - I think Rodgers will go with this:

-----------De Vries------

2.) 06 Mar 2018 12:36:27
Sinclair getting the start would surprise people after taking him off at half time? Edouard just might get the nod for me plus I think back four may come back. Could be a close game we need to step up a notch or two make a statement.

{Ed007's Note - Sinclair was complaining about feeling a tightness in either his thigh or calf against Morton and that's why he was taken off.}

3.) 06 Mar 2018 13:33:09
In Sinclair's favour is he does graft the line well with KT. A three would worry me ED, although KT is adept at this. Big Tom? Love him but i worry he will get space. They seem to play in triangles, very coaching manual, relying on a third man run. lot of graft and staying switched on for the big man.

{Ed007's Note - The 3-4-2-1 seems to be Rodgers formation of choice just now and I'd be surprised to see him changing it just now especially with Lustig out. The team I'd go for would be more like this in a 3-5-1-1, I'm just not sure if I'd start with McGregor or Edouard playing behind Dembele:

---------------De Vries------

4.) 06 Mar 2018 13:37:04
Hope he will be fit then.

5.) 06 Mar 2018 13:55:54
McGregor might be the safer bet ed plus he has a knack of scoring against sevco.

{Ed007's Note - That was my thinking too mate but Edouard and Dembele do play well together.}

6.) 06 Mar 2018 14:54:00
Ed do they both play in the same age group for France? Just wondering if the play well together cos they know each other so well. A know dembele started out at psg, maybe they know each other from then.

{Ed007's Note - Dembele was only there for one more year when Edouard joined PSG and there's 2 years between them so I doubt they would know each other from there and they miss each other at international level where Edouard has so far only been capped at Under-19s level level last year and Dembele moved up a year 2 years ago.
Maybe it's just a couple of French kids that have bonded over their mutual love of Asterix the Gaul, garlic and hairy women.}

7.) 06 Mar 2018 15:13:45
Haha. French burds get a bad press, a met a lovely wee frenchy in Dublin many moons ago. Smooth pits n fresh breath. Doubt she was as complimentary of me tho, a was a wee dog back then.

{Ed007's Note - Back then?}

8.) 06 Mar 2018 15:20:33
Agree ed young edouard is playing well big call for Brendan.

9.) 06 Mar 2018 18:08:38
Am a changed man ed. Settled down with kids, can't be arsed finding another burd now. Even if a could be arsed a couldn't be doing with tinder n plenty of fish. Couple of my mates do it, no way a could do it.

{Ed007's Note - I know what you mean, I couldn't be arsed being single and chasing women these days.}

10.) 09 Mar 2018 07:06:36
ROFL and if carlsberg done irony.



30 Jan 2018 22:26:24
Next linked names Hendry new offer put in and Scott Bain.

Rich T

1.) 30 Jan 2018 22:30:27
Scott Bain went on loan to Hibs a couple of weeks ago .

2.) 30 Jan 2018 22:34:06
Apparantly Bain has a recall clause, and Palace did this previously where they recalled a player to sell him straight away.

3.) 30 Jan 2018 22:42:06
Yeah but I think they can still buy him with the two clubs permission maybe be ED will be able to tell us if we can. Neil Mcann was not happy when asked about Hendry did not want to talk about it.

4.) 31 Jan 2018 00:09:37
After watching Aher again tonight, Hendry couldn't lace his boots. £1.5m my srse.

{Ed007's Note - I couldn't believe the grief Ajer was getting last week, MP, he's going to be one of many superb players for us in the future. Maybe not ready for the CL yet but he's already shown at Killie he's more than capable at SPFL level. Get a new 5 year contract under his nose asap.}

5.) 31 Jan 2018 00:14:08
I’d be very confused if we bought Scott Bain. He’s a decent keeper but unless we plan on making him number 1 then we should just be looking for a loan until the end of the season. And if the plan is to make him number 1 then that’s a disappointment tbh.

6.) 31 Jan 2018 07:55:02
I rate Bain quite highly to be honest I think he. Oils do us a turn would dearly love a right back.

7.) 31 Jan 2018 08:43:54
Reports say second bid for Carson went in last night was knocked back.

8.) 31 Jan 2018 07:55:23
Well ED it's nearly 8am are we hopeful of one or two bits of business being completed by midnight?

{Ed007's Note - YES!!!! Now calm down and get yourself off to feckin' school!}

9.) 31 Jan 2018 09:44:39
Sky reporting another bid for Carson turned down.

10.) 31 Jan 2018 09:59:18
Couldn’t agree more ed Ajer is the future of this club, he just needs time and continuity. Football fans are so fickle one mistake from a player and they are instantly not good enough. Magic pole that doesn’t make hendry any less a prospect, I don’t know if he is good enough but he and Ajer could compliment each other very well in the future as a centre back pairing but only time will tell.

11.) 31 Jan 2018 10:10:31
I have the feeling that both boyata and Simi are not going to be here much longer so ajer and Hendry could both be the future of our club.

12.) 31 Jan 2018 11:01:34
😂 Rich I hope for your sake we sign somebody mate. I don't think I've seen anybody get so into a window on here. Gaun yersel!

13.) 31 Jan 2018 11:23:28
Good contributor is Rich T loving his daily questions to Ed keeps us all updated with info 😉

There may be a dip in posts tomorrow but he could well be soggy later haha.

14.) 31 Jan 2018 12:48:33
No bad stan (y) :-D.

15.) 31 Jan 2018 13:35:49
Ed, Ajer is going to be utterly brilliant for us and I totally agree about a new contract. I too shook my head when reading in various places he wouldn't fit the bill. Every game he plays he improved and we have to remember he's still a pup. He needs to be played and the remainder if the season will see him get more tactically aware. I'm actually confident we can give the Ruskies a game now.

I still hope we bring in another CB able to play against them and give us options. Young Kouassi looked brilliant too and Ntcham, who I admit I had doubts over has booted my doubts down my throat and I couldn't be happier.

What about wee Kieran anaw? I couldn't love that boy more if he was my own son.

{Ed007's Note - It's looking like Hendry will be the only other CB bought. I'm hearing a fee has been agreed with Dundee but we'll need to wait and see if he's coming in this window or not.}

16.) 31 Jan 2018 13:48:47
SOS I was just pissed at McCann trying to feck us about. The boy might be a good prospect but I would have Ajer in every game he's fit. If Hendry could improve us again I would welcome the boy.

17.) 31 Jan 2018 16:03:30
Aye we really don’t know how the boy will be but I like us signing homegrown talent and developing them. I’m in complete agreement with Ajer you don’t captain a team at 17 unless you have the minerals that’s for sure! Get Ajer signed up!

18.) 31 Jan 2018 16:08:16
Any truth in rangers trying to hijack Hendry move.



28 Jan 2018 18:24:32
Hi EDs the Scotsman is saying that musonda is traveling up tonight for medical morra have u heard anything?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - The deal will be completed tomorrow once Musonda has completed his medical.}

1.) 28 Jan 2018 20:40:12
Hopefully he can be the spark we've been missing the last wee while.

{Ed007's Note - Musonda will smash this league, Will. If you haven't seen him play check him out on Youtube for his showreels and game highlights for Real Betis - the lad should be starting for Chelsea and I'd say he's a better player than Paddy Roberts.}

2.) 28 Jan 2018 21:24:40
Edd007, do you have any info on specific players coming in along side Charlie?

{Ed007's Note - Specific players hhhmmm.... Jack Hendry. There will be another bid made for him in the coming days.}

3.) 28 Jan 2018 21:50:12
Ed if masunda signs tomorrow do u think he'll feature against hearts? A hope we smash that lot on Tuesday n he could be what makes us click again, we're crying out for fresh ideas going forward.

{Ed007's Note - The stories going round are that he'll be in the squad for Tuesday, Steph.}

4.) 28 Jan 2018 21:43:55
I’ve got to agree with ed there. Charlie musonda in the SPL will tear teams apart. probs have no option to buy tho Bhoys but if it’s an 18 month loan he will definitely get bums off seats. just that wee spark wee need right now.

{Ed007's Note - I've messaged Ed002 to see what she knows about the Musonda deal and if there's any set fee etc. The general feeling at Chelsea is that

"His attitude needs a bit of a trim but staying fit and getting games would be welcome. He has suffered with his fitness but the club like him, but he needs to know when to pass otherwise he will end up like Ruben Loftus-Cheek."

5.) 28 Jan 2018 22:24:40
Glad to hear the lad is coming. Good news is thin on the ground lately. We certainly need a lift on and off the park.

We've had more casualties than the fecking Alamo.

6.) 28 Jan 2018 22:58:02
ED is the word on Gordon's injury that bad we are definitely needing a new keeper in?

{Ed007's Note - I don't know about that but I do know that.....

7.) 29 Jan 2018 08:39:45
Haha. With then news coming out today that Gordon could be back playing in a couple of months surely BR will bring in a back up keeper rather than 1st choice bearing in mind he brought De Vrise in?



17 Jan 2018 14:12:28
Great start to Compper he's out for a month calf strain.

Rich T



08 Jan 2018 14:39:27
What laugh I need to stop checking out news on Celtic football insider are claiming we are interested in CH Mawson from Swansea.

Rich T

1.) 08 Jan 2018 15:06:26
West Ham are set to offer a deal worth £25 million so doubt it.

Alright bhoys and ghirls any gossip on team for tonight?

Rich T

1.) 09 May 2018 18:46:33
Bain; Hendry, Simunovic, Ajer, Miller; Brown, Armstrong, McGregor; Forrest, Sinclair, Roberts. Bench : De Vries, Tierney, Ntcham, Kouassi, Rogic, Henderson, Johnston.

2.) 09 May 2018 19:00:44
Bain; Hendry, Simunovic, Ajer, Miller; Brown, Armstrong, McGregor; Forrest, Sinclair, Roberts.

Subs: De Vries, Tierney, Ntcham, Kouassi, Rogic, Henderson, Johnston.

3.) 09 May 2018 23:13:18
@Rich T: Tons of gossip, but some take the biscuit .



28 Apr 2018 09:36:34
Morning Eds I bow to your insight and knowledge I hope MD is fit but if not who will start up top Griff or edourd? Or way left field go with the false number 9 with Paddy Roberts up there?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - Going with what some of the lads posted last night it'll be Edouard who will start if Dembele doesn't make it.}

1.) 28 Apr 2018 16:31:39
Massive griff fan but I think Edouard deserves a start if Dembele doesn’t make it! Wee Griffiths was terrible against Hibs last week, but that’s not unusual lol. wouldn't have a problem with the big man starting 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻.

2.) 28 Apr 2018 19:30:21
That would be a massive boot to the stones for Griff they will press us high up the pitch but surely we can play round that and if need be bring Eduard on. Has any of the EDs heard how MD is?

{Ed007's Note - There's no news, Rich. Griffiths doesn't have the physical presence to bully their defence and do the job Dembele does against them, that's why Edouard will likely start.}

3.) 28 Apr 2018 20:10:39
Fingers crossed whoever gets the nod will turn up. cheers ED.

{Ed007's Note - I'm certain we won't be disappointed (yes)

4.) 28 Apr 2018 21:27:04
And yet Griff plated up top at ibrox twice and we scored7 in those two games!



26 Apr 2018 12:14:07
Alright Eds how are use guys? With the game on Sunday I think he will go with a back four. Even if Lustig is in fit cause we are. It the same with three especially when teams come at us I. e Hibs what do use guys think?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - Look what happened to Roma the other night with 3 at the back, constantly being caught out with long diagonal balls in behind the wing-backs. I can never understand why managers persevere with it when it's so easy to counter if you have speedy wide players.}

1.) 26 Apr 2018 15:23:27
Defo has to be back 4 is there any news on the squad in guards to Lustig and Dembele Ed?

{Ed007's Note - Lustig seemingly has a broken toe so is a major doubt but Dembele should be fine.}

2.) 26 Apr 2018 16:17:52
Good news for Dembele not so good for Lustig. Do we know what was wrong with Dembele?

{Ed007's Note - I think it was a slight ankle knock.}

3.) 26 Apr 2018 18:02:06
Well here's hoping they are both fit. With the end of season coming what positions should we be shopping for? CH GK LB RW and maybe ST.

{Ed007's Note - I'd be happy with that.}

4.) 26 Apr 2018 22:14:46
Someone has posted these positions as the ones needed nearly every day since February if repetition means it's right, we must be right about these position
If I may add my tuppence worth we need a good strong centre midfield . Kouassi doesn't seem to fit, that leaves us with Brown Ntcham Armstrong . Rogic and Mc Gregor are more attacking .
On Sunday Ntcham took some heavy tackles In the first half and I wasn't surprised that he was replaced at half time . Armstrong was injured and B R had to put McGregor into centre midfield . Brown and Mc G were completely over run in the second half and our back 3 just couldn't handle the pressure . If midfield had dominated I wonder how well or how badly our goalie and back 3 would have played . It was tough watching but at the same time Hibs just managed 2 goals and so it looked worse than it was .
However. I want another centre midfielder.



25 Apr 2018 02:04:03
Who is to start Sunday?





Rich T

1.) 25 Apr 2018 07:09:25
I’d put Paddy in. Forrest has been innefectual for weeks now. Won’t happen because he’s supposed to be the player of the year, I missed that.

2.) 25 Apr 2018 07:15:30
Think this will be pretty close to the team but ad swap Bain for Gordon.

3.) 25 Apr 2018 08:29:19
As Magicpole said bring in Roberts for Forrest.
Going for a 2-0 win.

4.) 25 Apr 2018 08:43:37
I have a sneaky feeling this will be a close game.

5.) 25 Apr 2018 09:00:54
Many of us would choose Roberts, for his flair and skill, but clearly BR prefers Forrest and it would seem PR is not in his plans (present or future) .
Forrest has proved he can create and score important goals, but it's the periods of ineffectiveness in between that irritate me.
However, he has the manager and team-mates backing and that gives him the advantage; I hope he decides to appreciate it on Sunday.

6.) 25 Apr 2018 09:52:54
Think that team will be the one BR picks rich. i’m like most on here but, I’d swap paddy for Forrest! Forrest has done his usual and forgotten there’s a 2nd half of the season to play, he’s been woeful since the turn of the year! Would obviously have boyata nowhere near the team but realise there’s not a lot of options in there. any win will do for me on Sunday, the results all that matters in this one. don't get me wrong but, I’d still love us to Annihilate them 🤣🤣.

7.) 25 Apr 2018 12:17:48
Paddy in for me wee james has tailed off a bit.

8.) 25 Apr 2018 14:23:03
Would think you are right rich with your team. I wonder does BR prefer forrest for his defence side of the game. Paddy seems to be his man for the last 20 min's. Only other one is bains over Gordon but l think Gordon's shot stopping against them this season will edge it. But someone needs to tell him he can't pass it and just clear his lines. Him and boyata scare the life out of me when they start passing it about. Any win will do for me.

9.) 25 Apr 2018 17:40:09
I would like to see another 4 or 5 nil but if not, 1-0 and the goal comes from a deflection off Broonies bum in the 93rd minute just to piss them off.



12 Apr 2018 11:03:15




Rich T

1.) 12 Apr 2018 12:20:13
I would prefer Bain; but I posted earlier in the week that I thought BR would play Gordon because of his experience of the venue.

2.) 12 Apr 2018 13:01:21
Once a bhoy I think the exact same would prefer Bain but can see him going back to gordon.

3.) 12 Apr 2018 15:10:55
I can't see him throwing Gordon in to this game after only one game and then having to sit out again.

4.) 12 Apr 2018 15:41:28
What is it you see in Bain, from what i've seen, yes he’s ok, but Gordon is our best keeper.

5.) 12 Apr 2018 17:38:23
I would play Simunovic before Boyata after his horror show in the last game.

6.) 12 Apr 2018 18:17:43
Jaj73. I have seen a keeper that doesn't kick the ball straight out of play or to the opposition almost everytime he kicks it.
I've seen a keeper who seems to be able to catch a ball.
His decision making seems sound enough with no sprinting out the box or kung fu kicks yet.
On top of that he seems to be a good shot stopper.

7.) 12 Apr 2018 19:36:35
Kev your basing Bain over a couple of games, and picking Gordon’s mistakes over a couple of seasons.

8.) 12 Apr 2018 19:52:56
You think I haven't seen Bain or Gordon for that matter play before they arrived at parkhead?

9.) 12 Apr 2018 20:06:33
Craig Gordon has made many an error and cost us dearly at times and his Kung fu kicks all should have been red cards

Bain I must say gives me confidence and fir that reason I’d play him ahead of CG

I’d rather we had a top drawer keeper but we ain’t going to spend money so I can only dream.

10.) 12 Apr 2018 20:06:44
Kev you’ve only seen Bain in a Celtic shirt for a couple of games, you might be a fantastic talent spotter I don’t know, but to judge Bain and gordon so quickly I don’t think you can, we are entitled to our own opinion in which I respect, but I don’t think bain has played in enough in big games to say that he’s better than Gordon, just my opinion though.

11.) 12 Apr 2018 20:28:50
Fair enough but I’m not saying Bain is better than Gordon

I have more confidence in him than I do Gordon based on what I’ve seen

Time will tell though Bain May only have 6 more games to show if he is worth signing.

12.) 12 Apr 2018 20:34:08
Jaj73 I have seen him in a Dundee shirt quite a few times as well as Celtic. Started keeping an eye on him couple years back when his name was first mentioned as a potential Celtic signing.
As for Gordon I have seen him play for 3 different clubs including Celtic and have never thought he was good enough.

13.) 12 Apr 2018 20:59:02
Bain for me.

14.) 12 Apr 2018 21:43:20
Fair enough bhoys 👍🍀.

15.) 12 Apr 2018 22:36:47
Craig Gordon has played 200 games for Celtic. I have watched somewhere between 180& 190 of them either life at the match or on TV . I have to say although he has made mistakes, I don't think he has been any bigger a culprit than most of our previous goalkeepers.
Talking about goalkeepers making mistakes, it certainly isn't only Celtic whose keeper can make proper howlers . Last night the Real Madrid ( one of the top teams in the World ) made a bigger mistake than I have ever seen Gordon making . A absolute clanger with no excuse what so ever . Now I don't watch Real Madrid play 50 plus games a season If I did I think their goalie would make many mistakes .
I honesty think some people who watch Celtic play nearly every game see a player, goalie, centre back or whatever, I think seeing the mistakes made, make some of us thing that our players make too many mistakes, they are comparing 50+ games watched to half a dozen games played by players of other teams.

16.) 13 Apr 2018 04:13:51
I agree Chris.

17.) 13 Apr 2018 10:09:33
Here is my big difference with Gordon and our last 2 major keepers.
I can not remember a big game were i thought gordon won us that game. Yes he's had some good saves but that's it for me.
If you mention big frazer my mind automatically goes to his games against Barca
Boruc my mind goes to the Manchester United game. Saves fae saha and the penalty. Was always thinking we had the chance when big man was in goals at penalty shootouts.
Everytime I see Gordon go near the ball I get the fear.

18.) 13 Apr 2018 14:55:52
I think your being a bit unfair on Gordon Kev83, he was instrumental in our unbeaten run, pulling off some cracking saves, with Gordon I feel we have a good consistent goal keeper, he doesn’t have the flair Boric had, who I think is the best keeper we had, and was also prone to the odd blunder.

Great news on Rogic I hope that we are not the same with Boyata I hope we will bring in someone better. Ed with us bringing in Bain and extensions to Ajer and Rogic I hope now we can get in a top CH and if we can bring or extend OE we would have a good transfer window for me. What would like to see happen this window ED?

Very funny but all this talk about him maybe going back to Chelsea. Has there been a bust up of words between Rodgers and Musonda or is Musonda just not fitting into the team?

Aye Boyata has been good but did use noticed that when the ball was punted up to main we had Brown in front of Main and Boyata behind Main when going for header double teaming the Main threat great tactics from Rodgers.

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - Even Ed002 couldn't find it out mate which is strange, all she knew was that he was on a list of players PSG gave to Vitoria de Guimaraes of who will be available to them on loan for next season. That doesn't mean we aren't trying to sign him, more that we haven't triggered the buy-out yet.}
