Just to cheer you all up.
Apparently we are trying to flog Dembele for £13.5m to Marseille because we are not in CL now.
Yes £13.5m would buy his RIGHT TOE lol.


1.) 16 Aug 2018 15:40:02
Who could we replace him with short term?

2.) 16 Aug 2018 15:43:07
It won't happen. We are all rightly annoyed with the current transfer schananagins but i don't think PL has a death wish.

3.) 16 Aug 2018 17:40:10
We are not trying to flog him for £13.5m. They are going to offer £13.5m. Big difference.

4.) 16 Aug 2018 18:29:34
It still amazes me how people can read reports saying a team is ready to offer X amount for one of our players and it gets gets turned around into a story stating "we are trying to flog our player"
People really need to stop believing the rubbish that is posted online or in the SMSM.

5.) 16 Aug 2018 18:38:27
If they up it to 20 I’d sell him. He’s awesome when fit but he’s so injury prone.

6.) 16 Aug 2018 18:46:03
Been staying pretty Fonzie so far, or trying, but if Dembele is let go for twice that I'd be Howard Beale in Network.



21 May 2018 12:33:34
I see we are going back to Austria for pre season, same as last season, first game on 27th June, then over to Dublin to play Shamrock Rovers on 7th July, same as last season.
Hopefully another TREBLE, same as last 2 seasons hail hail.


1.) 21 May 2018 13:44:21
Big fan of the high altitude training. Ok, the wee hoops didn't finish too high but it's a good gear towards the level of opponent we might face in the first qualifiers. There'll be a couple 'glamour friendlies' (if there's such a thing) i'd imagine to get a bit of gate money. But i'm glad there isn't plans to drag us over to the states or somewhere for the sake of an extra million. I think focusing on what the team needs is not only best for the team, but better for the coffers in the mid term with CL qualification on the horizon.

2.) 21 May 2018 14:50:44
*not the wee hoops some sort of Freudian slip there.

3.) 21 May 2018 21:18:15
When is the first champion's league qualifying game?

{Ed007's Note - The draw's on the 19th June with games being played 10/11 July 2018 and 17/18 July.}



20 May 2018 16:36:17
Do you know how much truth is in the rumour that we are actively trying to sign Abel Hernandez from Hull, being realistic I think we would struggle to match wages wanted from him, especially if an EPL club want him.


1.) 21 May 2018 11:02:57
Truth and rumour in the same sentence? :)

2.) 21 May 2018 11:03:11
I can't see it Tim. He wouldn't get in the side ahead of Dembele for a start. I'd also rather sign Edouard permanently as a back up/ future replacement to Dembele.



10 May 2018 11:47:59
It has been announced that Celtic plan to install a state of the art sound and light system at Celtic Park costing £2.8m similar to the ones already installed in Amersterdam and Munich, Celtic also plan to spend a further £1.2m on the second part of laying a new hibrid pitch.
Meanwhile over at Ibrox, Mr King has asked their fans to bring torches to all night games, and asked the fans to bring grass seed to help with the new pitch installation.


1.) 10 May 2018 13:43:15
Class. Some of the displays at the Allianz Arena (have a google) that are projected onto the pitch are amazing. Sure to get the place rocking.

2.) 10 May 2018 14:38:25
Jimmy bell spotted in B&Q buying three hundred boxes of fairy lights.

3.) 10 May 2018 16:04:20
I’d rather the money was spent on the team rather than speakers, lightbulbs and grass.

4.) 10 May 2018 17:39:39
That would buy a CH that might help us actually win some of those big games, that we tend to get our arses handed to us because our CH’s are not good enough.

Don’t get me wrong once they fix the defence and we win the odd home game in the CL great lights would put the tin hat on it.

Still wait until we get players though. I’m old fashioned and bells and whistles cut no ice when the team gets scudded at home.

5.) 10 May 2018 18:37:32
if there is no cl/ el then they can rent it out as an events venue = revenue. There's always a bigger picture.

6.) 10 May 2018 19:20:15
Have to agree with u iceman and magicpole. I know people will say that doesn't effect the transfer budget but it would go a long way to getting in a decent CH or maybe getting rogic or paddy to stay.

7.) 10 May 2018 21:29:29
You can't stand still . Being a big club also requires a ground worthy of such . There's a bigger picture .

8.) 10 May 2018 22:46:03
Yes, the bigger picture is not getting our arses handed to us, wether that’s in multicoloured lights or normal floodlights

I’m not against this, I just want a team that it’s worth putting these lights on for.

Fur coat and no knickers springs to mind.

Sort out the team.

9.) 10 May 2018 23:24:28
some people are never happy.
BR wanted the pitch improved to help the team and the board listened, If they had said no we will spend it on a player then the same people would complain that we aren't supporting the manager.
This kind of investment shows the orcs just how far ahead we are and that there criminal chairman is talking out his arse when he says that we would fold like a pack of cards if we lost just one title to them.
They couldn't afford £1 million for a player and we have spent double on a new pitch.
We are on course to win the treble again and we will have one of the best stadiums in Britain whilst our neighbours needs nets to stop there roof falling in on there heads.

10.) 11 May 2018 07:05:36
Let's just wait and see what our transfer activity will be before we criticise spending £4 million doing the stadium up. We have to keep the surroundings in order as well as a team on the pitch. Just look at the mob across the water, by all accounts castle greyskull is crumbling round about them due to being neglected for years. I've got to think if we're spending that kind of money on the stadium then we must have money available for recruitment, and to be honest i really don't think we need major surgery, yes defence definitely needs work done, but for me our first priority right now is getting rogic tied up on a new deal. Signings will come, it's all good enjoy it lads.

11.) 11 May 2018 07:36:00
do they still do paradise windfall? look closely at ticket all proceeds to stadium development fund. if its still the same, so you guys paid for it. thank you! and yes its another selling point for using CP as a venue for major sporting and music events. Progress.

12.) 11 May 2018 10:10:19
Nobody is against this. That’s not the point. It may be that there is enough money from whatever source to do this, but the fact remains, we lost all our home games. That situation needs changing and for me, that comes first.

Having a team that could win at home would make a multicoloured extravaganza in my mind without one new bulb.

Having these lights if the team doesn’t shine, will still have us in the dark.

If we can afford both then brilliant, the team comes first though. Every time.

13.) 11 May 2018 14:28:17
Does this kind of thing not just stop the club losing profit money on taxes? By reinvesting they are tying the money up. Correct me if i'm wrong.

Sure half the people complaining will be sharing the pictures when its done. Just saying.

14.) 12 May 2018 12:08:09
If you have wee bit extra you can always afford a pudding.

To hell with the poverty give the cat the budgie.
Light up paradise and the fans will come.



04 Mar 2018 00:37:36
Talking to some Tim pals at game today, and they were saying we are in talks with PSG to extend young Odsonne's loan for another year.
ED007 you heard anything about this?


{Ed007's Note - No I haven't, Tim but I don't see why not at least ask.}

1.) 04 Mar 2018 09:55:13
May well be the mousse away in the summer and the boy may get more game time? Both do seem better with someone along side them could Odsonne and Griffiths be a good pairing? He has potential and quality just not had a long run of games to show it to commit to the agreed fee? None of our strikers have had an extended run has been stop start all season. Roll on next Sunday hopefully another hun skelping finally shut the deluded up and their pals in the press 🙂⚽️🍀🏆.

2.) 04 Mar 2018 23:14:57
Timalloy Talks may be taking place about extending odsonne's loan,
However I don't know how your Tim friends come could have any knowledge whether these talks were happening or not.

Now EDouard out with a hamstring injury and may niss EL layoff games.
My question are these.
Is there are a problem a) with our training pitches at Lennoxtown to cause so many of these type of injuries (Dembele, Griffiths, Forrest etc) or b) are the training methods employed by Brendan and his staff causing these injuries or c) is it simply too many games in a short space of time when players not fully fit.


1.) 17 Aug 2018 12:29:26
He picked the injury up against Hearts, one of the most common injuries in football players so I’d guess it was just hard luck sadly timalloy!

2.) 17 Aug 2018 12:49:04
I read strikers do get these types of injuries more often because of the way they train, (a lot of acceleration) .

Don’t know how accurate it is. However I’m not convinced it’s all down to luck. You don’t often see Ronaldo missing games due to injury. When he does get injured it’s never for long spells.

{Ed007's Note - If I remember right, Andy Ronaldo had problems with his ankles(?) while at Man Utd and they nearly put paid to his move to Madrid. I think some of it must be down to their age and the physical demands put on young players whose bodies are still developing and I really I do think luck plays a part in that.}

3.) 17 Aug 2018 13:35:10
Didn’t actually know that about Ronaldo mate but no doubt luck plays a part.

I remember watching something years ago about these guys who sold this special pool (definitely not it’s correct name) to top clubs, they claimed it could significantly increase recovery of players.

I just wonder whether these kind of facilities the top clubs have could make a difference. Or whether it’s a case of Ronaldo knowing his body because he seems to recover from injuries quicker than deadpool!

{Ed007's Note - Or Dr Fuentes worked his magic 😉

4.) 17 Aug 2018 14:10:05
Who is Andy Ronaldo? has he got dual nationalities for Scotland caps?

{Ed007's Note - 😂

5.) 17 Aug 2018 13:51:32

He will be busy nowadays flying over to Manchester to see pep!

{Ed007's Note - 😁

6.) 17 Aug 2018 15:37:02
Andy Ronaldo works in our McDonalds. His ankles are shot he does the drive thru.

{Ed007's Note - Oooft, who's Big Mac did he leave the pickle on to get shot in the ankles? Was it a drive by at the drive thru?}



16 Aug 2018 10:37:48

We are playing 4 qualifiers because of our poor coefficient, even making the CL group stages last 2 seasons never really helped as we lost most games. So dropping into Europa League, hopefully, will allow us to pick up some much needed coefficient points with some wins (2 points win 1 point draw same as CL) Also, with a bit of luck, if we do our bit, the other Scottish teams will pick up more coefficient points also to raise our whole Scottish coefficient.
Next is the sevconians and their gloating, they have not even WON their tie yet but are boasting about "going further than Celtic" and "putting in a serious challenge for the league" Sorry, sevconians, but even with all our troubles lately, we are still head and shoulders above the new club.
Next piece of good news, despite Lawwell's reluctance to sign any cheques, I believe at least 2 signings will be made before end of transfer window, probably funded by Boyata leaving (which will keep Pedro happy) Commper will probably be let go also.
Finally, for now, the bold "Lying King" is back in the Court of Sessions today, facing a Contempt of Court charge, once that is in force, King AND Sevco are doomed, both on and off the park.


1.) 16 Aug 2018 11:07:02
If I was you Tim I really wouldn’t worry about what that lot say. Everyone knows we are light years ahead of them. They don’t pose any threat whatsoever.

2.) 16 Aug 2018 11:32:23

CL groups guarantees 4 pts and then you build on that.

EL groups guarantees 3 pts but the further points aren't added to that. If you get 5 pts during the groups then your total will be 5 but if you get 2 pts then you'd be given the guaranteed 3. Also says EL is 1 pt for a win.

3.) 16 Aug 2018 11:33:32
Aye and we're light years ahead of them too when it comes to disco lights 🤣.

4.) 16 Aug 2018 11:59:50
Sorry Kevbhoy check your facts again.
UEFA have new rules from this season. Europa League is now same as CL 2points win 1 point draw, so the more wins the more points.
Remember our run to Seville, we gained lots of extra coefficient points because of that as did the people when they got to Manchester.
I got my facts straight from UEFA website, where did you get yours from.

5.) 16 Aug 2018 12:07:36
Is it not from next season that it is down to the individual clubs Co-Efficiency and not the nations?
So really it doesn't matter how the rest of the Scottish teams or even the National team performs.

6.) 16 Aug 2018 12:15:25
I was going to ask the same question Jonbhoy.

7.) 16 Aug 2018 12:39:41
I was just passing on what I saw on social media Tim but the first part of my post was removed. I'd heard the person was very reliable but if you've checked then I'll take your word for it.

They could be out of Europe tonight and out the League cup on Sunday.



15 Aug 2018 21:29:10
ED007 have you heard anything on Eduard's injury? Hope not too serious.


{Ed007's Note - Rodgers said he had picked up a knock against Hearts so it doesn't sound too serious.}



15 Aug 2018 10:55:01
Let's play the Blame Game

Peter Lawwell ABSOLUTELY to blame.
When he sticks to sponsorship negotiations he is top class.
When he gets involved in the football side (ala HE appointed Delia) he is useless.
But important factor, it is NOT in Lawwell's interest to spend money, he gets a £1m annual bonus as long as Celtic have a decent bank balance.
But Peter, YOU have just cost Celtic circa £30m I hope they dock your bonus.
Lee Congleton WHO? I hear you ask, an anonymous man, who is a pal of Rodgers. Head of Recruitment, what fekin recruitment? The Sunderland fans were dancing in the street when he came to Celtic, says it all.
Dermot Desmond. Yes our main shareholder, a billionaire but as tight as drum. He has given Lawwell too much power on the transfer side of things and the club is paying the price.
John Kennedy. By all accounts a thoroughly nice guy, and he has gained lots of sympathy for his career ending injury, but he is NOT A GOOD DEFENSIVE COACH, since he got that role our defence has been abysmal. Keep him at the club, but NOT as a coach.
Brendan Rodgers. Yes SAINT BRENDAN, he picks the team out on the park and must see the what we the fans see, that Lustig sadly does not have the legs anymore to play right back, Simonovic a donkey with not talent. I feel sorry for young Hendry he should be at right back. Boyata, a snake in the grass, who now thinks he is better than what he is. Get rid. Hayes, not Celtic class. Commper a fekin JOKE. Kouassi, again not Celtic class.
I could go on but you get the picture, there are so many people to blame but it is time for the Lawwell and the board to back Rodgers with decent signings, and for Rodgers to get back to what he is good at Coaching, and leave the other stuff to more qualified people.


1.) 15 Aug 2018 11:06:52
Should defenders really need a coach to show them how to defend properly? You never hear of a midfield coach.

I’m afraid I can’t see us ever having a solid defence under Rodgers. However I’d start with buying a good goalkeeper, that would definitely help.

2.) 15 Aug 2018 11:07:58
A decent rant that Timalloy but your just out of hospital. Relax, get some bets done and enjoy a stress free day.

3.) 15 Aug 2018 11:08:13
Tim John Kennedy isn't a defensive coach
He is just a coach.
He works to the program the head coach sets out just like everyone else.

4.) 15 Aug 2018 11:44:31
Unfortunately, John Kennedy is not a 'defensive coach' and having his career cut so short denied him many years of experience that a coach could probably draw on. Anyway; this Congerton guy seems an even bigger chancer than that previous Park fella and must be removed or replaced if we are to gain any credibility and respect in transfer recruitment.
If BR himself, has final say then his judgement also, has to be scrutinised when you look at Hayes, Commper, Gamboa, Benyu, Eboue and even Musonda who have come up short of standards required.
Lawell is a great businessman but the business always comes first, well before the football team in his eyes and profit or personal bonuses seem to be his priority over improving the team.
Unfortunately, this concoction of bad elements have conspired to put us in this mess and it needs, intelligence, common sense and much more positive actions than we are seeing to fix it.

5.) 15 Aug 2018 12:22:46
Once a bhoy guys like Rogers mourinho and wenger all had their career cut short or didn't play at a high level. Hasn't stopped them being a coach.



14 Aug 2018 22:15:10

lawwell thinks he won the pissing contest, and with Europa League monies only to bank (IF we beat Sudova) no way will he loosen the purse strings.
So Green Brigade get your banners ready for first game back at Celtic Park and tell Lawwell and Bankier what we think of them.


1.) 14 Aug 2018 22:34:36
Be lucky if Pedro doesn’t now sanction a sale of one of our “assets” which is the norm after being pumped out Tim, never mind spending anything 😂
The only way the board pay any attention is when fans don’t pay/ turn up, that won’t happen while Rodgers is there!
Europa league is our level but the money is shocking so expect to live accordingly 🙈 £60mil banked over last 2 years, mega assets in the team (not going by the last few weeks) and still nothing, all about book balancing you see.
Oh wait. fancy lights anaw 💃🏻💃🏻 they ate into the budget 🤔.

2.) 15 Aug 2018 09:31:50
We've got more than enough money in the bank for both lights and players BBJ. There's no way we missed out on a player due to a set of lights.

@Bristolcelt I know it is an early kick off, but if you arrive near Celtic Park a couple of hours before, there are usually guys with spare tickets willing to sell (not touts) or try the pubs around Gallowgate you may get lucky.
If no luck, then tell stewards your girlfriend is a minor and lift her over turnstile lol.
