Any squad news reports suggest Allan could get some game time?

Rich T

1.) 16 Mar 2019 10:13:57
Seemed like he was talking about after the league was wrapped up to me Rich T.


2.) 16 Mar 2019 10:30:28
Why would that happen?


3.) 16 Mar 2019 11:12:49
Wheve our own boys that night game time not someone who is away to another club.


4.) 16 Mar 2019 13:53:31
Wee shouldn’t give game time and progress them for a different club *.


5.) 16 Mar 2019 13:55:16
Unfortunately Allan never really got a chance at Celtic which surprised me as he always looked like a lad with real talent. I know we could all say that he wasn't better than what we had in his position but how do we know for sure? He never got a run of games to show what he could really do and I suspect we only signed him to piss Sevco off. He's going to another team because we didn't give him a reason to stay. No-one can blame him for wanting to play competitive games. HH.

{Ed007's Note - Unfortunately Allan still has the same problems that have dogged him his entire career - lazy & unfit with a serious attitude problem.
I said when we signed him that he wasn't good enough for Celtic and would be lucky to make our bench yet if he had went to Ibrox he would have been their star man, even Stubbs who managed Allan during the best season of his career blasted his attitude and commitment when he took him to Rotherham on loan.
Let's not try and rewrite history regarding Allan, he'll go down as one of our worst and most pointless signings in recent years. I'd actually put him in the same bracket as the likes of Compper and Benyu, the difference is that we should have known exactly what we were getting with Allan.}


6.) 16 Mar 2019 14:53:15
Ed i got ripped to pieces on here and on a few other Celtic sites on Facebook because I said he wasn't good enough.
Liam Henderson was a million times better than Allen and we sent him to hibs on loan then lost him altogether.
Celtic fans were blinded because we got one over the mob.
Was just an expensive up your 🖕 basically.

{Ed007's Note - That's the only reason I can think of too, Kev. It certainly couldn't have been a footballing one imo.}


7.) 16 Mar 2019 15:19:20
If he is the most creative midfielder available, and he is getting paid by Celtic, it is crazy not to play him just to satisfy you guys that don't appreciate his ability's, he always seemed to play well at Hibs, didn't see any evidence of him being lazy when playing for Lennon,


8.) 16 Mar 2019 22:57:33
Aindoh I've seen you back Allan a few times. Sorry, but there's a different class between being a Celtic player and a Hibs player. Different gravy. Given that he was a JP signing though I'm really surprised he hasn't cemented a place for us by now.


9.) 17 Mar 2019 02:41:41
He was worth every penny, just to annoy the bluenoses. ;)


10.) 17 Mar 2019 04:40:01
Jimtim, the same thing was said about LG, think the Ed was most voiciferous in saying that LG wasn't good enough, just because he was a good player at Hibs didn't mean he would be good enough for Celtic, LG was almost sent back to Hibs on loan by Superronnie, but instead was given a chance to prove he was different gravy, unfortunately for Allen, he got sent out on loan, and never prospered at Celtic, while others like Biton, (who should never be anywhere near a Celtic midfield) , were given a chance, Allen's chance is now gone, but if we are short of creative midfielders, it's madness not to play Allen.


11.) 17 Mar 2019 10:06:42
There's probably a middle ground Aindoh and JT. I don't think Allan is good enough to be a Celtic player but we do know he can do it against Scottish opposition. Added to that, I've seen other players given games who shouldn't have so it makes you wonder just how bad an attitude he might have.


12.) 17 Mar 2019 10:48:53
I think the difference is Aindoh LG came in and changed his attitude, worked hard to make an impact. Allan hasn't. Nor did he even make an impact at the likes of Dundee or Rotherham.


13.) 17 Mar 2019 13:05:26
Griffiths ablitiy was never in doubt, it was his mentality and there is still major question marks over it.


14.) 17 Mar 2019 13:23:27
He should look at the giving Weah more game time rather than Allan. Might end up ruining future loans from PSG and Co because we don't play them.


15.) 18 Mar 2019 08:11:18
I wouldn't have a problem with Allan playing or on the bench if he's the best available player for the imagined role. Hard to see how that situation might arise, even with the injuries; Henderson has shown up really well.

I was one of those who were wrong bout Allan. I saw him a bit because my Dad's a hibee. Its a shame he's languished so deep in our squad. Good player, if not good enough. Who is!


 

 

26 Feb 2019 00:16:03
Lot of news about LC wanting BR coming out now. The only way to stop it is BR stating he’s going nowhere will be the only way to get rid of this rumour I hope he does in a strong message by saying he is going nowhere.

Rich T

1.) 26 Feb 2019 07:23:35
He's already walked out mid question about the Leicester job. That's enough to put it to bed.


2.) 26 Feb 2019 08:47:49
Supposedly he’s away.


 

 

31 Jan 2019 12:14:58
Reports say the RB from Dormin not coming in.

Rich T

1.) 31 Jan 2019 13:49:20
What reports?


2.) 31 Jan 2019 14:31:46
No doubts from the Main Stren Scottish Media.


3.) 31 Jan 2019 14:38:23
Off to Napoli is the rumours, Transfer office is now closed.


4.) 31 Jan 2019 15:10:14
Report I read said Napoli were interested, I guess to some that means they are signing him.


5.) 31 Jan 2019 15:33:15
Obviously. why would he pick us over Napoli if that was the case?


6.) 31 Jan 2019 16:10:49
Plenty reasons tesla. Game time the main one.


7.) 31 Jan 2019 17:18:59
Napoli have been interested for about a year and still havnt signed him. All they are doing is keeping tabs on him which means nothing.


 

 

25 Jan 2019 20:06:34
Ed what’s the news on Brown do you really think BR doesn’t know what’s going on?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - Yes.}


1.) 25 Jan 2019 20:50:28
Rodgers sayed today Browns made his decision did he not?

{Ed007's Note - I don't think so.}


2.) 25 Jan 2019 20:50:50
That’s strange surely Brown would’ve spoke to his manager about his intentions?

{Ed007's Note - What would they talk about, wages or how many years Brown wanted on a new deal? So that's us got contract negotiations added to the ever growing list of things managers don't do.}


3.) 25 Jan 2019 21:52:46
Nearly there Ed, just a week to go.

{Ed007's Note -

via GIPHY


4.) 25 Jan 2019 21:59:13
Jeez ed a feel for u 😆😆.

{Ed007's Note - Rich is one of our more inquisitive posters 😁😁


5.) 25 Jan 2019 22:00:11
I think Brown should be allowed to mull over his contract, as I’m sure all will agree he has earned the right to do so.

{Ed007's Note - Brown probably doesn't know himself what he's doing at this stage, it's a huge decision for him and his family.
If - and I mean IF as it's just speculation - there was going to be any change in Brown's squad status (maybe not guaranteed to start etc) the footballing department (Rodgers) will have informed Peter Lawwell (and I'd imagine Rodgers would also have spoken to Brown himself to layout how he sees Brown's place in the squad as he winds down his playing career whilst keeping the team at the top) and then Peter Lawwell will put an offer on the table.


6.) 26 Jan 2019 00:05:50
Thanks Ed. I was just thinking that surely everyone envloved with Brown be it manager player Lawwell will by all now know where they all stand and it be now a case of decision time?


7.) 26 Jan 2019 00:44:08
It's a big call for Broony. Give the lad space. If he goes then he'll be doing it for financial reasons only, if he stays then it'll be an emotional decision. The very fact that we have made it difficult for him is a compliment in itself because none of us can say which is the bigger influence and we don't know for sure how we'd react if we were in the same position. HH #broonyisawarrior.


8.) 26 Jan 2019 04:44:41
As much as it pains me to say it I hope he moves on. He’s the weak link in the midfield now.


9.) 26 Jan 2019 05:51:59
Whitey Brown still has a large part to play I hope he stays.


10.) 26 Jan 2019 13:00:27
He has the option of getting involved in a new club in the Aussie League. This opens up huge opportunities for him when his career is over as a player, or he can stay and captain the club to the ten, though he may not be starting every week when that comes round.
I'ts a huge decision to make and he deserves the time to think it over.

{Ed007's Note - Exactly mate and he's got a wife and kids to think about too so it's not purely a footballing decision, it's a massive lifestyle choice for him and his family to make. It's not as if he's just going down to the Pub League or the Championship.}


11.) 27 Jan 2019 10:24:23
Money won't be the motivation for broony. It will be the lifestyle. Waking up to sunny weather most of the time going in his pool after the kids get back from school walking along the beach and taking it easy, just having a chilled out life. I for one wouldn't wish him bad if he chose to go he has his wife and kids to think about too. good luck to him whatever his choice is, Hail, Hail.


 

 

25 Jan 2019 12:14:43
See we have been linked with another name for right back Gumny from Poland club want 4.5m.

Rich T

1.) 25 Jan 2019 13:09:24
Looks a talent from what I've read on him. With Ralston out I really hope there is genuine interest from us and we get this one over the line if so.


2.) 25 Jan 2019 13:37:19
If this window closes without signing a quality rb then Pedro's at it again.


3.) 25 Jan 2019 19:15:40
Hasn't played a lot of first team games.


4.) 26 Jan 2019 00:11:32
Aindoh, if Celtic doesn't spend millions on a right back, PL will be blamed . It doesn't matter in the short time if the player is any good or not.


5.) 26 Jan 2019 08:14:05
Aye it does matter Chris they've knew from The summer that a rb was a necessity so theyvev had 6 months to do due diligence so surely they've a couple lined up.

Rafa Benitez next manager for Celtic will be Leaked on build up to cup final trying to put Celtic off their stride for the triple triple.

Rich T

1.) 19 Apr 2019 16:06:37
Explain what u mean by this?


2.) 19 Apr 2019 17:16:17
Don't know how the players or other fans would feel about it but i for one would be buzzing if that was leaked at any point before the final.


3.) 19 Apr 2019 17:33:29
By the sounds of it; it means a pure and simple distraction tactic?
I've no doubt the experience and confidence we have amassed for the 'big occasion' and the opportunity to make history will prevail.


4.) 19 Apr 2019 17:42:54
He's had success in europe cups granted . but I can't recall ever thinking his team's play great football . Is he by his sell by date past glories behind him? I just don't know if hez the answer . he also makes the rev i m jolly look happy .


5.) 19 Apr 2019 17:44:45
100% OAB.


6.) 19 Apr 2019 19:02:55
I just fed everyone and their granny are not wanting us to do the treble treble and will say anything to try and stop us so I see something like this to done before the cup to try and stop us. Just look at what they did when Strachan was taking over from Martin it was all over the papers just before helicopter Sunday.


7.) 19 Apr 2019 19:04:28
Surely these rumours are attempts by main stream Scottish media to distract as many Celtic people as possible whilst trophies have still to be won .
I don't think P L would want NL to be aware of a new manager appointed for next season whilst we still have cup to win .
Only if Lennon is getting job can that rumour be right.


8.) 19 Apr 2019 21:02:40
My concern about Lenny is, he doesn’t or ever has got in with our board especially Lawwell, that’s why he left the last time. Similar fall out at Hibernian too! The only reason he’s here because we were abandoned by Rodgers and Lenny was available but better again on the cheap. I personally haven’t seen anything he’s done differently to offer him the permanent position, I believe the players are united to do it themselves. I’d go with Brown player manager. Anyone remember those days lol “Roy of the rovers” stuff.

{Ed007's Note - There's people above Lawwell that are against appointing Neil Lennon and it wouldn't surprise me if Lawwell's bean counter head is driving NL's appointment.}


9.) 19 Apr 2019 21:30:20
Ed, any inkling of who those above Lawwell might fancy instead?

{Ed007's Note - I honestly don't know but as I've said all along, I would love to see a list of the applicants and those that have made it known they'd be interested. I think we would be shocked and some of the names would give Pedro nightmares.}


10.) 19 Apr 2019 21:41:14
I don't know how true it is but i heard he left the last time due to a big falling out with certain board members that turned a bit nasty.
Also heard then that he would never be welcome back and I was really surprised when he came in.


11.) 19 Apr 2019 23:24:11
@jonbhoy that’s the post comment I already sent above 👆🏻, I all in anyways the treble treble is for us to lose .


12.) 20 Apr 2019 07:27:05
Where's the evidence he fell out with lawell, just the other day he was waxing lyrical about Pedro and Dermot, and if there had been a falling out why would Pedro go back for him, and av yet to read about it in the rags who would have been all over it if true.


13.) 20 Apr 2019 21:37:39
The Board will spend the money necessary and its up to the Manager to make a proper case for the players he wants . If Manager over a period of time demands and gets players who come in do a very good job, then he will find it easier getting the players he wants . Rodgers bought so much rubbish Jan 2018, he could hardly expect the Board to spend freely summer 2018, at the same time the Board broke their club record buying Eduoardo.


 

 

16 Apr 2019 15:47:07
Hi Eds what’s your thoughts on this. Paddy Bonner has said that Celtic if they are giving the job to Lennon do it now so he knows and he can use the rest of the season to bed in his thoughts on how to play across to the players and prepare for next season the squad going forward. That to me make sense so with Celtic not doing that now indicates to me ( only my opinion) that Lennon is not Celtics main choice what’s do use think?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - We're going for a Treble Treble and as Neil Lennon has said this isn't the time to go making drastic changes when the players are so used to playing Rodgers system.}


 

 

11 Apr 2019 12:49:55
Hi Eds when is the press conference this week today or morra just to hear who’s available and who’s not?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - It must be tommorow, Rich, NL is doing an interview for CelticTV this afternoon.}


1.) 11 Apr 2019 14:22:21
Cheers Eds how do u see us lining up for Sunday
Bain
Lustig
Ajer
Benkovic
Tierney
Brown
McGregor
Forrest
Christie
Sinclair
Edouard.

{Ed007's Note - That's exactly the team I'd go for as well 👍


2.) 11 Apr 2019 14:55:40
Think it’s the team most would go for but a think NL will play Rogic instead of Sinclair.


3.) 11 Apr 2019 19:42:09
Although I wouldn’t start him, Rogic does tend to pull the strings against the sheep.


4.) 11 Apr 2019 20:35:19
Just praying Burke is not playing. Really don't rate him.


5.) 12 Apr 2019 00:11:10
Can't remember the last time rogic pulled the strings ic, he's good for a wee magic moment tho, bench for me.


6.) 13 Apr 2019 147:21
That was my team ad well but wasn't sure about Sinclair or rogic.


7.) 13 Apr 2019 14:37:10
I agree of late, and I wouldn’t start him, but he does like a cheeky goal against the sheep
I still fancy Burke on the wing to start but I’m in a minority.


 

 

09 Apr 2019 18:30:42
Bain
Toljan
Benkovic
Ajer
Hayes

Brown
McGregor

Forrest
Rogic
Christie

Edouard.

Rich T

1.) 09 Apr 2019 19:04:33
Ad go with
Bain
Lustig
Ajer
Benk
Kt
Broony
Callum
Ntcham
Eddy
Forrest
Sinclair.


2.) 09 Apr 2019 20:05:19
I would play it safe with a 4-2-3-1
Bain
Lustig. Ajar. Benkovic. KT
Brown. McGregor
Forrest. Christie. Sinclair.
Edouard
I would play Sinclair simply because his record against Aberdeen this season has been excellant, they find it hard to pick him up but I don't think Neil will start him.
I think Neil could play Christie with Brown, Rogic number 10 and McGregor on the left, a way to fit his best players in the starting 11.


3.) 09 Apr 2019 20:49:55
Agree tho k he might go with Christie as well but sinc does well at hamdump.


4.) 09 Apr 2019 20:57:53

08 Apr 2019 11:29:33
Morning Eds who would you like to see as new manager?

Rich T

{Ed007's Note - Marcelo Bielsa.}


1.) 08 Apr 2019 11:37:00
Who is he and is there any news or gossip towards us making any moves to get new manager at this moment?

{Ed007's Note - He's the Leeds manager and one of the most highly rated and respected coaches in world football. As far as I know it's still going to be Clarke or Lennon but my fingers are crossed that there's others being considered.}


2.) 08 Apr 2019 11:38:41
Just looked him up that would be pricey?


3.) 08 Apr 2019 12:34:46
Yeah I hope so Clarke I think wouldn’t take it and we’ll Lennon well at the moment that speaks for itself. I think it will depend on priorities what Celtics main ambition for next two years is it Europe or 10 in a row. As we all know money talks big building job next year with the squad we need to spend. now will that be on a quality manager or quality players under a not so big profile manager? Only time will tell. With BR we were spoilt I don’t think that will happen again unless DD got a taste for that overall stile of manager. What I mean is overall changes and professionalism to the entire club or does DD and PL want their club back especially PL only time will tell. I would like freshness again and not going back to Lennon and definitely not dull Clarke.


4.) 08 Apr 2019 13:05:51
The appointment is the most important, maybe since Big Jock?
Get it right and everyone's on a high; we 'tidy-up' the squad and bring in the quality we need, all ready to progress and improve.
Get it wrong and there's an anti-climax and flatness, then comes doubt, as confidence is transferred from Celtic to our rivals.


5.) 08 Apr 2019 21:23:03
Dunno why everybody thinks we’ve got a big rebuilding job to do. There will be players leaving, possibly quite a number of them but we’ve got a massive squad, probably enough to put out 2 if not 3 teams that could win the league. I hope we bring in a few big additions to the squad that will improve it but I reckon the majority of the team that will win 9 in a row are already at the club.


6.) 09 Apr 2019 16:30:09
I remember when the worse kept secret in the mid 1960's was that Jock Stein was going to be the new manager of Celtic . It was said the most important appointment ever .
54 years later, every time during these years the next manager to be appointed had to be the most important ever . Even 2 mths ago B Lennon had to be right.
