I like Rodgers however some truth needs told. People say we "don't have the money to compete"

Rodgers had the EPL money with Liverpool - he got knocked out Champs League groups, then knocked out last 32 in Europa.

Think he won like 1 European game against a bang average side. WITH EPL MONEY!

He is a modern coach who thinks every 3rd pass should go back to the goalkeeper is "progress"

Modern coaches who think long balls or physical styles are ignorant

However it's their arrogance that refuses to see we conceded like 12-15 goals from crosses and long balls because we ignorantly ignore the physical side to football.

We can't defend or score from set pieces or crosses. That is a huge factor at this level of football.

Time to stop trying to make us Barcelona and get a better balance between defence and attack.

In the 2 games again zenit did he not stiffen the team up and was a bit more cautious, especially at home we went more root one to the mousse, and we got the ball down the sides and put good balls in we just didn't score enough we totally out muscled the Russians in the first game. We go into our shell away from home in fact a lot of them are scared to play at that level away from home.


2.) 23 Feb 2018 11:52:49
In Europe this year we conceded 25 goals. 19 of those goals came from crosses or long balls.

cultured defending that can pass but can't head or clear a ball.

76% of our goals!


3.) 23 Feb 2018 19:05:38
You must be kidding

I wouldn't say our defenders are cultured or capable of making passes.


4.) 23 Feb 2018 21:50:08
I didn't say they were Markom, I'm saying that's how they are being instructed to play.

That's what a modern coach likes. All backwards passes.

Be as well going 442 as I don't feel we have a striker suited to being lone striker. Dembele doesn't have hold up play and even Griffiths is more dangerous than him in the air.

Read quite a few times of our scouts under John Park era getting a bit of abuse.

Not saying they were world class but I think some criticism is way over the top.

I mean these guys scout a list of players for a position and then the list gets narrowed down based on cost.

It comes down to Lawwell and co, who they are willing to spend on.

You can't blame a scout if the board pick the absolute cheapest on the list for the sake of saving an extra 2-3 million.

When Rodgers came in I felt even with new scouts we would see some targets brought in of a slightly higher quality but it seems it's just same old.

Tesla369

1.) 14 Jan 2018 20:59:00
Sorry but whoever put Bangura, Balde, Ciftci, Cole or Kazim-Richards at the top of their list, based on cost or not, deserved their jotters.


2.) 14 Jan 2018 23:29:21
That's kinda the whole point in what I posted. The scouts need to create a net of players.

It's not them that puts Ciftci and co at the top of the list.

That's Lawwell and co that decide who is top of the list. For example when Lewandowski and Huntelaar were fairly unknown they were on our scouting list.

board decided the 7-8mil at the time was too much money. I know Zurawski we took instead of Lewandowski.

Is that the scouts fault? it seems to me the board never seem to get criticism for this, only get praise when books are balanced but never held accountable for some of the terrible players we wasted money on.


3.) 15 Jan 2018 00:37:04
PL and the board have been heavily criticised in recent times with regards to this exact issue. But I repeat, I don’t care what the scouts were told about cost etc. the players mentioned were nowhere near good enough for our club so they need to take their share responsibility for that. Even if Carlton Cole was at the very bottom of the list it was still too high.


4.) 15 Jan 2018 00:58:10
As I said if a scout has to look at available strikers and come up with a list of say 30 players, then it's inevitable that not every player in that list is going to be a 30 goal a season striker.

If any scout could scout that accurately they could probably manage any team in the world and win the Champions League.

As I said in lists before we had the likes of Lewandowski and Huntelaar. On the same lists would have been the likes of Zurawski and Scott McDonald.

If you had the job as Scout at Real Madrid and were told you had a transfer cap of £10mil per player, is it your fault if you don't unearth the next Ronaldo on a terrible budget?

Obviously not, a scouts a job not a miracle worker. At Celtic these £3mil caps can be effective for some players but not all and the board have failed to push the boat out for that extra 2-3 players higher up these lists to make the difference.

Again Rodgers clearly said he wanted work done early in January window, just as he said he wanted a CB at start of season and didn't get one. Leaving him with Biton at the back for the CL.

Lawwell meanwhile does an easy job, it's easy to balance the books at Celtic if you hardly spend money lol. Yet he takes ridiculous bonus for doing nothing, on top of an already ridiculous salary. I think last year he took close to £2mil.

Now that makes me sound like his biggest enemy, I'm not. Overall the scouting strategy is fine but we need to up the budget to cast a bigger net and catch bigger fish.

If he wants to take huge salary and bonus imo he has to do more than just dominate an almost dead Scottish league.


5.) 15 Jan 2018 08:58:19
Did PL really take home 2m?!? That's more than Chelsea or Liverpool's CEO salary!


6.) 15 Jan 2018 10:48:46
My point Tesla is that a scout should never put forward a name when they know for a fact the guy isn’t good enough just because he’s within budget. Being within price range shouldn’t make you a target. We need a CB and Kirk Broadfoot’s within our budget, doesn’t mean he should be anywhere near a list of players we’re scouting.


7.) 15 Jan 2018 13:16:29
JimTim - his Salary is just over £1mil with bonus but he also gets ELTIP payment for us getting into the champions league which is over 800,000

So he takes between 1.8 to 2 mil each time we make CL groups. Which for a club which supposedly posts 500k profits just at times in the past. handing out an extra million to a guy for doing his job is just a joke.

Kevbhoy, I get your point. I'm just saying that regardless of what scout we have if the board continue to play it too safe then we won't see much progression. one step forward and 2 steps back.

Doesn't matter if you have Park, Congerton or anyone else. The lists will be similar as that is what the board has asked for.

Another excellent and correct decision by VAR.

Yet you will hear nothing about it.

seen about 8 decisions correctly overturned and vital for teams progress etc.

Tesla369

1.) 28 Jun 2018 05:12:46
There is no problem with VAR. The problem is that it can still come down to interpretation.


2.) 28 Jun 2018 06:53:51
So Sweden shouldn't have had a pen after the ref reviewed it.


3.) 28 Jun 2018 08:36:49
Said before; it's still vulnerable to human error and 'honest mistakes' with personal opinions varying, dependant on circumstances and interpretation. It will never please all of the people etc etc.


4.) 28 Jun 2018 10:43:40
It has worked with many game changing correct decisions being made thanks to VAR. of course it’s not perfect, no system with human involvement can be. But, it’s a whole lot better than honest mistakes, or awful refs ruining games by influencing them through cheating or ineptitude, or simply not seeing the whole play.

People who don’t like it point only to the times it’s jess than perfect. Focus on all the decisions and if you do that you cannot fail to see it has worked far more than it hasn’t.

I would widen its influence to include diving and just took out by a sniper rolls. Hammer those barstewards from the off. If the player argues the red just has to say, it’s all on tape mate, you made a can't of yourselves and got caught. Do it again and your arse is grass.

Mon the VAR.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah Mon the VAR. What difference does it make whether Douglas Ross or Collum are on the pitch or in the VAR room? Except it's easier to manipulate the game from the VAR room and there is ZERO comeback because the VAR team have reviewed so who's policing them.
Has one of the basic rules of football changed now and the referee's decision isn't final like it has been for over 100 years?
The people sticking up for VAR obviously don't watch much of the Bundesliga where it's been proven to be the farce it is and how much easier it makes match-fixing - imagine it in Scotland, VAR will just back up the honest mistakes, would a VAR team award Celtic a last minute penalty at Ibrox with the scores 0-0?
Would a German VAR team have flagged up Maradona's Hand of God goal? Would an Iranian VAR team give the USA a penalty or Russians and South Korea? Major tournaments would become even more political - and we all know UEFA/FIFA don't like that unless there's bungs involved.
All VAR does is get some more people's opinions on something that have watched replays, their interpretation of the rules or events could still be wrong, it's just another opinion. If 20 people watch a replay of a penalty decision they won't all agree for differeing reasons, one person might think Neymar dived and another might think there was contact and he was entitled to go down - so what does VAR actually do because it still doesn't present a 100% conclusive outcome, instead of refs getting the blame for mistakes VAR shoulders it.
It's pointless and the stupidest idea that's been brought into foootball since assistant refs on the byline at the goals and one that has ruined an already mediocre tournament.
Maybe people who don't like it have watched it for more than 2 weeks.}


5.) 28 Jun 2018 11:28:52
Now that's what I call paranoia. yesterday South Korea could have had a goal chopped off and Germany would have still needed just 1 goal and Mexico could be out of the tournament.

There have been several penalty decisions correctly called, Neymar correctly called out on a dive, last nights decision among others.

So VAR haters are basically saying they would prefer these incorrect decisions stood? which could give 3 pts swing the wrong way? totally changing tournaments?

it's simple, the old school don't like change. However if you don't like VAR then keep your mouth shut when decisions go against you during the season.

{Ed007's Note - So if VAR stopped Celtic getting what you think is a stonewall penalty - even when you've seen the replay - you'll just sit and accept it because other people have watched the same replays and came to a different decision, you'll be on here telling all of us to shut up because VAR said it wasn't - sounds a bit muppety to me. Why accept VAR and not just the referee's decision?
And who's to say one of the VAR team (or their associates) didn't have a bet on there being no penalties, or that X player will get booked?
Maybe kids should stick to their video games and leave real football to the old school that taught them about the game.
Go and speak to German fans or Google Bundesliga VAR, you might actually learn something about it.
It's far from paranoia when we live in a country where we have seen referees openly cheat - Dougie McDonald - and the reaction to Ross shouting "red card" for Simunovic so who's going to police a group of faceless men sitting in a room watching monitors and making major decisions, and their 'honest mistakes' will be above reproach because they are the VAR team. Would we have been allowed to moan if the VAR team had backed Dougie McDonald at Tannadice that day or would we just have been told to shut up?}


6.) 28 Jun 2018 11:44:09
The overwhelming consensus is that the big decisions arrived to by VAR have been correct. That’s the bottom line. As for bent refs watching, they need to know that taking a decision that can clearly be evidenced will ruin their careers. The ref gets a bye because in the heat of the game they can make mistakes. Having the ability to review has seen most refs changing their mind. That is good for the game, unless if course you prefer leaving it to chance.

We would benefit more from it than we lost. It’s gers and it isn’t going away. It’s the future and attempts should be made to improve it, but your kidding yourself if you don’t think most people, even with its problems, is a fairer way to see justice be done. It’s not perfect, but anything that can remove honest mistakes against the gers next year I will welcome with open arms.

{Ed007's Note - The bottom line is it's as flawed as the normal referring system and just as open to the same errors, except VAR does make match fixing a hell of a lot easier.
It's still just other people's opinion so you are still leaving it to chance, if VAR don't make mistakes why are people talking about things it's got wrong? Surely VAR was right and the people calling it out were wrong?
And just because you agree with VAR's decision doesn't make them or you right, it's just that you agree and you can still agree with people on things that are wrong.}


7.) 28 Jun 2018 11:50:35
Thank you Ed! Put perfectly, the idea of VAR in SPFL is truly sobering!

{Ed007's Note - It wouldn't make any difference, Davie. Instead of blaming refs people would just blame VAR for deciosions they don't agree with with. It's been a complete farce in Germany with the head of VAR sacked for match-fixing allegations, players brought out at half time to take a penalty etc the German fans hate it.}


8.) 28 Jun 2018 15:26:26
If the Germans hate it, it can't be that bad lol, but seriously thought it was just for obvious errors.


9.) 29 Jun 2018 19:03:54
The FIFA Commitee with responsibility to produce new technology driven changes to the game ., were hamstrung and couldn't agree about anything . In the true nature of committees in order to maintain their apparent usefulness they came up with Var .
They have now created another 4 years work, manipulating and amending Var before abandoning the experiment completely.


10.) 30 Jun 2018 14:14:22
It doesn't matter up here, it would still be the same freemasons operating VAR.

BATE Borisov - a team with mostly Belarus players and only a 13,000 capacity which they don't always fill.

in last 10 seasons have qualified 5 times for the champions league group stages. The exact same amount as us.

Yet we have a 60,000 stadium that we sell out often. We make millions more than teams like this.

Yet our own board and some of our own fans are convinced we can't do better in Europe because we don't have £500 million.

Tesla369

1.) 06 Apr 2018 17:46:01
@Tesla369 two posts from you on the rumours and banter pages, both fekin negative.
Celtic thank you for your support, NOT.


2.) 06 Apr 2018 18:37:03
Whilst negative it is a valid point.

Can’t say I follow the Belarus league, but if the points offered are true question is why can’t we do more.

On the flip side look at PSG spent close to £250m on two players yet can’t make the finals.

My view is Celtic are anchored by a mentality of we are happy to here and especially away from home look like rabbits in headlights when up against any Euro heavyweight. We do have a good standard of player many internationals but never seem to do ourselves justice on the big stage.

Celtic won’t spend the money so looking at successful teams of similar or smaller size is the best way to go, are we not copying Ajax, Porto’s formula, buy young develop then sell for profit. Repeat cycle?
It’s holding the right players for enough time to give us a chance of doing something great.

I posted before about the players that left Wanyama, Forster, Van Djik, Hooper, Lesley etc. Sold because they wanted to go but imagine them blended into the team now.


3.) 06 Apr 2018 18:51:36
Not negative at all. Realistic. The things I posted are facts. If you disagree please feel free to explain to me how the things I posted are not true?

you can't argue with facts, that's the problems. I can't even post a fact without being told I'm not being supportive.

I pay and go to and positively support Celtic every home game regardless of who is wearing the strip. Good player/ bad player

but I'm not going to come away and pretend our teams doing amazing if they aren't. Sorry if that bothers you tbh.


4.) 06 Apr 2018 18:54:14
Just a question Timalloy - The point about BATE Borisov. Do you find it an acceptable level that we are being matched by sides with a revenue similar to SPL sides?

I'm not saying we should be winning the Champions League but we should be able to be a strong Europa League side.

Looking at the quarter finals, only 2 teams are way above what we could be.


5.) 06 Apr 2018 21:26:57
Might be negative but it’s very accurate. Same can be said for those teams from countries that don’t have huge tv deals.
Our progress has less to do with money and more to do with passing accuracy and ability to make a quick pass to a colleague. Every one of our players has to take a touch before a pass, did you see zenith do that?


6.) 06 Apr 2018 21:33:33
Is this the BATE Borisov that were pumped out the CL qualifiers by Dundalk last season. To be fair i think they had a purple patch a few seasons ago when they had a few gems in their team like Hleb. Bit of a pointless post comparing our crowds to theirs. Gate money means very little when it comes to competing at that level. We probably rake in 25 million in ST sales not a lot at CL level half a squad player for Man City and the likes.


7.) 07 Apr 2018 00:24:15
Don't understand this argument at all, at all, football is a simple game, but is played by humans, no are all mixed up, and supported by people's who are even more mixed up, I just get the point of you post, do you just like spending money, I would almost nearly just about, quarantee that if Steve Clarke had been in charge instead of Ronnie, PhPh, Celtic would have done a lot better in Europe,


8.) 07 Apr 2018 22:22:15
If you take into consideration the amount of cheating Rangers 1872 did especially in tax affairs for over a decade . How the Scottish referees cheat us on an on going basis . mits no surprise that Celtic disappoint in Europe from time to time.


 

 

04 Feb 2018 02:04:46
Terrible transfer window. Rodgers saying Hendry is bought for Europe. Makes you laugh.

If Rodgers didn't talk so much rubbish at times it wouldn't be as bad.

Revolving door? revolving players of similar ability, projects in and out.

Time Lawwell and that got pulled up for dragging their heels with our progress.

Team were excellent. playing 5 in midfield allows the likes of Ntcham and Kouassi to perserve their energy a bit more and maintain which allows the whole team to maintain a good tempo

Thought Odsonne shut a lot of people up as well, guys 19 and can hardly see the difference between him and Dembele.

Tesla369

1.) 30 Jan 2018 23:20:04
Tierney and broony outstanding and edouard was maybe best he's played imo rest of team were excellent.


2.) 31 Jan 2018 11:01:27
Brown cost us a goal so KT for me. A young core of players who will go from strength to strength.


 

 

27 Jan 2018 22:15:32
Positives today, thought Ntcham was excellent the first half and covered lots of ground. Think he tired in 2nd half but first half he was brilliant.

Gordon injury a perfect example of the board resting on their laurels, Should have had a younger more competitive keeper in to challenge him a long time ago.

Ajer answered his critics well today, dealt well with a few awkward situations and read the game extremely well for a 19 year old.

Likewise Dembele didn't do any better than Odsonne who has had a lot of abuse, but Dembele seems to get away with it a little more.

Tesla369

1.) 27 Jan 2018 23:05:56
Should dembele not get away with a little more? A player who scored so many goals last season and at some point will make us a massive profit . So many fans in here so negative . Staggering anyone can compare edouard to dembele . Short memories.


2.) 27 Jan 2018 23:25:49
Dembelle just needs game time to get his sharpness and confidence back, maybe now with Griff's injury he will get a few full games under his belt, .


3.) 28 Jan 2018 08:54:55
Craig Gordon getting clattered is because of the board? I know the board rightly get some stick but that's honking patter Tesla.


4.) 28 Jan 2018 10:03:52
Kevbhoy - aye that's what I said. Point is we sell Forster for over £10mil

We bring in a keeper for free who should have been retired due to injuries. (fair enough as a short term option)

then the board decide to keep him long term (even though he should have been replaced long ago)

Craig Gordon missed 2 full years due to knee injuries before he came to us. Now he has another knee injury.

In other words we kept and old goalkeeper with weak knees and getting older doesn't help that. Rather than replacing him with a better, fitter keeper the board remain with the cheap option.


5.) 28 Jan 2018 12:06:26
It was nothing to do with weak knees. It is a total different injury to the one that he had before. He was injuries after the full weight of a centre back crashed into his knee. Now I ain't a Gordon fan but this guy has helped us win trophies and all that. The manager ok'd a new contract so i don't see how that's the boards fault.


6.) 28 Jan 2018 13:09:45
That's MD first game since the 30th of December and you expect him to be in top form?


7.) 28 Jan 2018 13:38:15
Liamlarsson, you have just misread what I said. Yes Dembele does deserve slack. My point is that Edouard didn't deserve slaughtered as he's not had a consistent run in the team.

Gladly so as he isn't our player but this season Edouard has played less and scored more than Dembele.

Not critical of Dembele but some fans very harsh on Edouard.


8.) 28 Jan 2018 14:09:42
Kev83 It doesn't matter if it's not the exact same injury. Fact is he has had issues with his knees, both knees going back almost 8 years ago and isn't getting any younger.

So him injuring a knee is no surprise. Keepers get knocked like that weekly. Your chance of injury increases when your knees are weak.

The board took a gamble originally when they got him and he has done well, but in no way should he have been our main choice.


9.) 28 Jan 2018 15:31:07
Tesla's point is not it was the boards fault he got injured, rather they haven't prepared for that eventuality and even when he was playing shite we only had Dorus as back up.

That is the boards and Rogers fault.

Unless of course anybody thinks Dorus has been a good signing. If they do then god help us.

People all said the same nonsense when we spent about 4.5 million on Scott Brown.

before and after he signed, he's came good though. People forget when you sign the likes of McGinn they then get chance to develop and improve also.

I think he is a good player and what our skillful midfielders like McGregor, Armstrong lack a bit of physical style as well.

Good passer but can dig in and wins possession back as well.

We can def afford to give 40-50k a week for a starting 11 and bench.

we just choose not to at the moment because we don't need to. The board are happy playing it safe and fair enough.

Makes us look like we need a Rangers challenge though, which we don't as we have made record profits without them.

It's just that the board lack ambition without challenge, but imo we should be setting our own standards and not always playing it so easy.

but the attitude there ED is wrong. People are clearly expecting too much from VAR too soon.

expecting it to be 100%

but actually people should be asking is there improvements.

based on this world cup, the vast majority of decisions which were overturned were correct.

with only a couple still arguable/ wrong. So aye VAR will still result in an individual ref making the wrong choice

but you are saying to throw it away altogether because of that. What I'm saying is stop being so negative and ask yourself the positives.

how many decisions were correct using VAR vs wrong? the answer is a lot more were correct. So that is improvement.

nobody is saying perfect but it's progress.

Tesla369

{Ed007's Note - But there was still wrong decisions so overall what was the point? They got some right and they got some wrong - exactly the same as refs.
How many mistakes was The World Cup Final decided on? It was overall a disaster just like it was proven to be in Germany.
Just like fans in the stands, viewers at home, ex players, ex-refs and pundits in the studio, journalists and my Mrs, it's just opinion. And people will argue until they get the decision that suits their personal opinion.}

It was 100% a penalty. He never took his eye off the ball once and when it deflected he just reacted with his hand to slap the ball.

One of those when you handle it and wonder why you done it, like a reflex.

I think mostly people were more swayed to being annoyed about the decision because it went against the underdogs and many wanted Croatia to put up more of a fight.

France were just too good though overall. The France vs Belgium game was always the real final.

Go and speak to German fans or Google Bundesliga VAR, you might actually learn something about it.
It's far from paranoia when we live in a country where we have seen referees openly cheat - Dougie McDonald - and the reaction to Ross shouting "red card" for Simunovic so who's going to police a group of faceless men sitting in a room watching monitors and making major decisions, and their 'honest mistakes' will be above reproach because they are the VAR team. Would we have been allowed to moan if the VAR team had backed Dougie McDonald at Tannadice that day or would we just have been told to shut up?}

That's fine, but the vast majority of decisions using VAR have been correct this summer and that's undeniable.

If you are happy to get rid of VAR and stick with old ways then don't complain when refs get a decision wrong with only a split second to decide.

VAR is in testing stages just now, so for people to expect it to come in and be totally perfect is just ridiculously unrealistic.

Yet what it has done is overturned wrong decisions the whole tournament, yet where are the people praising it then?

It's not fair to just criticise, it deserves praise when it works also but people were wanting on it failing before it even got tried.
