I heard from one of the stewards on Saturday that the Celtic Foundation Charity are selling LED candles to be placed along the Celtic Way before game with Salsburg on Thursday. The idea is that you name a loved one on the candle.
I think it is a good idea, but not sure if you have to leave candles there or you are allowed to take them home, which is what I would prefer, and put under our christmas tree or in a prominent place around the house.

That's a nice touch Tim.



15 Oct 2018 12:29:53
OK guys here are some "titbits" my pal told me last night.
First, a wee disclaimer, even though Brendan kindly sat down with my pal and his friend he is NOT the type of guy to say anything disparaging about anyone on the current board, this is an account of my friend's take on the conversation and what Brendan DID NOT SAY.
My Tim pal got the clear impression that if a serious offer from England had come in the summer, Brendan would have thought seriously about it.
Our manager reiterated he got on with Lawwell "most of the time" (read into that what you will) My friend got the impression it was Bankier that Rodgers was not on the same wavelength as, Bankier has a financial background and counts success by a healthy bank balance.
Obviously our manager did not say anything else on that subject, it was my pal's reading between the lines here.
Brendan was happier talking about the playing side of things and told my friend this.
On Lustig, Rodgers likes him both as a person and a player, but hinted he was coming to the end of his time as a regular in the team.
On Tierney, our manager positively purred talking about Kieran and said he could go and play in any big team in the world, and that he was lucky to have him at Celtic Park.
On Brown similar to Lustig, in that he knows Broonie cannot go on forever, which is why McGinn was targeted. The manager reckons that not playing international games has added about 2/ 3 years to Brown at the top level.
My friend told me more, but I know people hate overly long posts, so I will finish now but will just add, both the guys who met with Brendan are genuine and would not just make up stories, as you can tell by this account, my friend was careful what he told me. I have his permission to relay some of this on here. I am 100% certain what he said was a truthful account.
I am also aware some on here will not believe this and put it down as another "Timalloy tall tale" make of it what you will, all I will say is talking to my pal last night it has filled me with confidence going forward these next few months.


1.) 15 Oct 2018 12:56:01
Interesting Tim. I'm hoping that the disappointing summer window together with the rumours about dembele and mcginn and other targets we never got in will ensure we get a couple of quality players in either in January or next summer. Did your friend get any hints of this?

2.) 15 Oct 2018 13:12:18
@Henrik, my pal has just texted me saying I was "too diplomatic" he has given me permission to divulge some more things on Scottish referees, Scottish football reporters, Alex McLeish, his thoughts on the current managers in the SPFL AND plans for the future.
It is up to you guys, if you think it is worth posting I will post more. The stuff he told me on reporters and refs is worth a read on it's own.

3.) 15 Oct 2018 13:40:33
Timalloy i don't doubt you. But, Lustig although lovable is done at RB; Tierney is class; Brown won't last forever but quitting Scotland will enhance his club career;the board love bank sheets more than football. It's great of you to share info but most on here have already said this stuff. Was there anything more exclusive in the unedited post?

4.) 15 Oct 2018 14:26:08
Go for it Tim think most on here would be interested on what you have to say.

5.) 15 Oct 2018 16:11:42
Don’t believe any part of your post.

6.) 15 Oct 2018 17:50:41
Iceman come on pal come off the fence, don't be so ambiguous lol.

7.) 15 Oct 2018 18:58:59
Come on Tim, tell us more.

8.) 15 Oct 2018 18:59:41
I should rephrase that Tim I’m not suggesting you’ve made it up but I’m not convinced BR would be so open to your (and his pals) when discussing his players. BR is a wise man he knows how to play the game. So to reiterate I don’t believe any part of your post 😂.

9.) 15 Oct 2018 19:12:20
@Iceman read my posts again, Brendan was very cautious in what he said, it was my friend reading between the lines and judging his tone and body language.

11.) 15 Oct 2018 23:23:34
Spit it out man. Are you angling for a serial or book. If you have info let it go. We can judge you retrospectively. as we all are.

Just got our 3 game ticket package yesterday, don't know how true this is, but heard a rumour tickets going slowly for Rosenburg game with only just over 40,000 sold. Club now doing individual tickets now as well because of this.


1.) 18 Sep 2018 17:37:12
Can't be true Timalley we have the best fans in the world and surely that has to be more than 40,000.

2.) 18 Sep 2018 18:21:35
2015/ 16 last time in Europa. Lowest was 37000 highest 47000. So 40000 Plus against a team we have faced a lot. Is probably about correct.

3.) 18 Sep 2018 19:28:08
It does irritate me that if this was CL at £110 per package every game would be 60,000 sell out. Where do these missing 15-20,000 supporters go on EL nights? I've said it before you get a lot of tourists at CL nights at CP. Why pay £110 for a CL package but not £72 for EL? . This is not aimed at people who can't make games for financial or health reasons, just the part timers who only turn up for the glamour games.

4.) 18 Sep 2018 20:24:00

I think you get your hardcore types that go to games regardless of results and performance

Then you have the group who want entertainment and stay away if it’s not there

Then there’s the fans that can’t afford it or get away from work etc.

5.) 18 Sep 2018 20:43:07
Maybe people are getting fed up with the fact we've are selling players and not replacing them appropriately for there hard earned money.

6.) 18 Sep 2018 22:11:54
No surprise, if board showed ambition fans would back it, support takes its lead from decisions made by club.

7.) 18 Sep 2018 22:15:17
Just looked at teams and results from CL tonight modest ambition would get us complete if with a lot of these teams.

8.) 18 Sep 2018 22:54:03
@Big Daz, if we had qualified for CL this year and went into it with the squad we have at the moment all games would be sell outs and all 3 match packages sold out, so to say fans are not turning up for the EL is because of lack of transfer activity is not true.

9.) 19 Sep 2018 08:42:15
Stevie, if we were in Cl with this squad we'd be lucky to end up with 3 or 4 points in total. HH.

10.) 19 Sep 2018 09:48:34
Aye but 60,000 would turn up every game to see us scrape 3 or 4 pts. Is it beneath the CL snobs to support the team in EL?

11.) 19 Sep 2018 10:27:58
I’m gutted new job means can’t get thursdays off first euro campaign il miss in a long time 😢.

12.) 19 Sep 2018 11:02:31
Thats a my point Stevie. It's all ifs and buts. The fans are aloud to react if we are not happy. Ps I'm not talking about me by the way I'm just speaking my opinion on why people aren't going.

13.) 19 Sep 2018 11:54:10
Nay luck Welshy, genuine excuse tho You've been pardoned😂😂 @Big Daz bet those same unhappy fans would have dragged their arses along to CP if we had a CL tie against Real Madrid.

14.) 19 Sep 2018 12:40:22
How about long distance fans that are not able or prepared to travel on Thursday and Sunday and therefore have to choose.

Not everyone is on the doorstep.

15.) 20 Sep 2018 16:43:03
People are fed up shelling out when the club don’t. That’s it.

16.) 21 Sep 2018 09:15:22
I’ve hardly missed a home game in the last 7 years.
I’m one of the handful who attended raith rovers in the first rounds of the league cup, and the draw with Arbroath in the Scottish cup. But I’m staying away from the EL games because the board have screwed the fans over in this window. They won’t spend the money to get us into the CL, but expect us to spend money now we’re in the EL.



16 Aug 2018 15:10:43
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.}

Reading all the moaners on here after one bad result, yes we were garbage and it was hard to take anything positive from game and Rodgers too was at fault for setting up team wrong. Not an excuse but Europe takes it out the players, especially when we play top teams like Salzburg when players expend more energy and yes the Thursday/ Sunday thing has an effect also, but come on get behind the team guys.
A word to all the new posters on here, get a life, almost to a man you only come on here and to post negative comments, if you cannot be more positive and support Celtic then GET LOST. No one wants to listen to all your moaning.


1.) 17 Dec 2018 13:18:56
well said tim.

2.) 17 Dec 2018 13:55:13
Tim have you noticed the more trophies we win the worse the moaning and hysteria gets?

3.) 17 Dec 2018 14:10:46
Kev I almost waded in giving you a hand last night but thought what’s the point. Some fans need to get a grip. of course everyone is entitled to an opinion but some of what’s posted beggars belief. On course for a treble treble and b2b Europe after Xmas that’ll do me any day.

4.) 17 Dec 2018 14:16:03
A degree of hun like entitlement me thinks.

5.) 17 Dec 2018 14:37:56
constructive criticism is one thing but overall sniping and moaning is pathetic.
My opinions on hard midweek games etc. have been noted many times but, in this case, we had too many players injured or ill and Hibs were up for the game.
Result over, we move on.



15 Dec 2018 13:14:07
Oh dear, I have been asked to put up the following disclaimer by "The Suit"
The money I won was from my TWO (only 2) ex bear pals and NOT from the suit. I can certainly vouch for that as the only way the suit would bet me was if Sevco were 3-0 ahead, us down to 8 men and them getting awarded another penalty in the 90th minute, THEN he would want a bet lol
He was round at our house today with Christmas cards from HIS wife, to Mrs T and the girls. As usual he went on about his "great charity work" yes the suit is shy and retiring. But he approved of the donation we made to the foodbank appeal, I also told him Mrs T and the girls have their own charity Mary's Meals which is a great charity feeding poor kids around the world. The difference between Mrs T and the suit is one donates quietly while the other one wants it announced on News at Ten, I will leave you all to figure out which is which lol
Sadly, despite my best efforts I FAILED to get him to strike a bet with me ha ha.




14 Dec 2018 12:01:04
Ok to all the Tims wondering if my ex bear pals paid up on their bet. YES THEY DID. I expected nothing less from these honourable gentlemen.
For those not in the know my ex bear pals bet me (when they had 5 points and Celtic 3) that Sevco would earn more Europa League points than us, of course I gleefully accepted the bet and today 2 crestfallen ex bears presented Mrs T with £500 each (they always give my winnings to Mrs T so she can get her share first lol) but Mrs T already was aware of my bets and money is going towards our family summer holiday, with some monies going to charity including our ED007 Foodbank appeal.


{Ed007's Note - Gee, Tim I just got an e-mail alert about your latest donation - £100 on top of what you & the family have given already is well above and beyond buddy. I really can't thank you enough for your help this year as we're struggling for donations so far.
God bless you, Mrs T and the girls 🙏 and I hope you all have a great Christmas and New Year you've certainly helped other to have one.}

1.) 14 Dec 2018 12:55:02
As I told you ED007 I believe in Karma good and bad, spread the good Karma around.
Most of us know what it is like to struggle financially especially at Christmas, your foodbank should not be needed but sadly these foodbanks are now more needed than before.
Besides it stopped Mrs T giving me another tongue lashing lol
PS you can also thank 2 ex bears who fall hook line and sinker for all the sevco propaganda, give it a week and they will want another bet on them in next year's champions league ha ha.

{Ed007's Note - The country's a mess, Tim and it's good (important?) to help out others if we can. Once again thank you so much.}

2.) 14 Dec 2018 14:15:38
Sorry ed av been meaning to donate, I'll do it now mate before it gets spent 👍.

{Ed007's Note - Got it, Steph, thanks very much.}

3.) 14 Dec 2018 14:37:50
Well done Tim, will donate when I get paid ed, 20th.

{Ed007's Note - Good lad, Brendan. I know how hard things are for folk without it being Christmas and don't want to folk to feel any pressure.}

4.) 14 Dec 2018 16:41:32
Think you can thank those ex bears this time ed. Well played Tim 💚 keep scooping their cash for many a year ha ha.

{Ed007's Note - It was still Tim that gave it so the credit is all his imo.}

5.) 14 Dec 2018 19:50:25
hi Ed007! am long time reader of the site but after reading Tim’s post thought I had to donate as well
Can you let me know how to do so.

{Ed007's Note - Hi JC, welcome aboard. Get yourself posting and joining in our live chats for games - the more the merrier 👍
There's a link at the top of the page (just above the posts under the main tabs) that will take you to the donation page but here it is:


And thank you very much.}



14 Dec 2018 10:51:51
First have to say we got LUCKY LUCKY last night but as others have said in the past we have been UNLUCKY losers so I will take our tag of Lucky losers lol
But how many howlers has Gordon now made in important games and he never seems to either learn from them or accept responsibility. But the whole team were poor last night and once again the players looked nervous as if the occasion got to them, yes Salsburg were pretty darn good but we made them look better with all our misplaced passes.
But to end on a positive Celtic are going to do another "Seville" lol.


1.) 14 Dec 2018 11:33:58
Hope we don't do another Seville tim.

2.) 14 Dec 2018 11:35:36
Tim it isn't Gordon's fault entirely for that howler, the manager instructs the players to play/ build from the back and it's nonsense. I wish the keeper would just punt it up the park like they used to do instead of having opposition players high pressing in our own 18 yard box. Honestly Jesus wept!

3.) 14 Dec 2018 12:07:36
Malky it is all his fault you wouldn't see that mistake in an under 8s game come on it was a howler he had some great saves no doubt about that and would for once like to hear him admit his mistake he never does.

4.) 14 Dec 2018 12:13:46
What a load of nonsense malkybhoy. It was 100% Gordons fault. Yes Brendan wants to play out from the back which can be frustrating at times but I guarantee he doesn't encourage reckless attempts to start play like last night.

5.) 14 Dec 2018 12:19:41
Couldn't agree with you less Malky, Gordon was (and I'll use the old footballing cliche) 110% to blame for that goal. There are times for lumping the ball up and that wasn't it. The ball was safely in his arms! Playing out from the back is part and parcel of the modern game, especially at this level. Good teams show their class with calm defensive possession and direct penetrative play. Good teams also have big defenders who get to every ball that's lumped up to them, big defenders love that kind of game.
I would rather see us build than lose possesion.

6.) 14 Dec 2018 12:25:54
If the team wasn't instructed to build from the back that howler would never have happened. Sorry guys but I will never be convinced with this building from the back nonsense! It gives me the fear😨.

{Ed007's Note - It really helps if the 'keeper can play the ball out though, something Gordon has never been able to do.}

7.) 14 Dec 2018 12:42:27
Said the exact same thing last night, trying to circulate the ball is impossible with Gordon in goal. Exactly the same away to Salzburg and will continue to happen against teams who press us.

The game could have ended 0-0 last night and I would still be thinking the same thing.

{Ed007's Note - I've been saying it for a while that we need a new GK but for me this summer a new 'keeper is as essential as any other position we need strengthened.}

8.) 14 Dec 2018 12:55:44
Lucky Lucky - I don't agree
Rosenbourg scored and earned a point. The fact that the point prevented Leipzig going second is neither here nor there. It was a draw so each team got their point.

Over the group games Celtic collected 9 points and finished second in the group. 2 points ahead of the third placed team.
No one handed us those 9 points for free.
Would you say then that these other teams who finished second in their groups were also lucky, lucky?
Lazio 9 points
Malmo FF 9 points
Rennes 9 points
BATE Borisov 9 points
Fenerbahce 8 points

Also, almost every team which finished in 3rd position in the groups had 7 points (the same as Leipzig in Celtic's group)
so, we earned the points to go second and qualify.

9.) 14 Dec 2018 12:56:15
If you have the players that have the technical ability and confidence to do it then of course that helps but unfortunately we don't. You just have to look at Ajer and Jozo with the ball at their feet they look like nervous wrecks. Then there is the misplaced passes, the Boyata instance at Ibrox when he lost the ball to Windass. The manager must see he is asking players to do things they clearly are not comfortable doing and don't have the ability to do either. "Good teams show their class and calm defensive possession" when have we ever showed class and calm defensive possession jeez we got schooled at home from the mighty Salzburg. Yet everyone is quick to label our defenders bomb scares.

10.) 14 Dec 2018 13:49:17
The howler was nothing to do with Salzburg pressing. the striker stands in front of the goalie to put him off he's 36 he should be used to it by now . building from the back is ok for me but i am sure Brendan has said if it's on, if not sky it, he leaves it up to the players to decide, they're all internationals and let's be honest if we just booted it up the park to eddy who's hold up play is average most on here would be going tonto.

11.) 14 Dec 2018 14:14:06
I don't think Gordon saw the Salzburg striker tbh. if he did then that's even worse😂😂.

12.) 14 Dec 2018 14:15:29
Ajer is not a nervous wreck with the ball at his feet. Yes he made a blunder last night but had just came back from injury and was out of his usual position.
More times than not the big man is good with the ball and can make some great lung bursting runs with it.

13.) 14 Dec 2018 14:27:09
Kind of agreed with most of the above. Also was a complete howler. but have seen similar in a non under 8s game. Champions League final perchance? Anyway let's just enjoy and a big thank you to all for our, mostly, measured debate which makes this Forum what it is. Give yourselves a round of applause.

14.) 14 Dec 2018 16:15:47
Ajer is one of the better passers in CB. He was rusty and hadn't been on and like mentioned out of position. Have always said on here Gordon has to have the worst distribution I've ever seen in a keeper and can't recall him ever saving a penalty for us either. Yes he made some good saves that's what he's paid to do but he's not paid to put it on a plate for the opposition. I don't get how he can't not see the player he was right in his face by the time he released the ball. That cost us a point and the open goal cost us the win.

15.) 14 Dec 2018 22:17:36
It was a clear mistake by Gordon but I actually thought from a shot stopping perspective he was good, header in 5 minutes and 1 on 1 after Ajer mistake both very good saves!

16.) 14 Dec 2018 23:01:08
Couldt agree more tiny tim this lucky nonsense and scraped through carry on does my nut in. Over 6 games we were better than Leipzig end of HH.

{Ed007's Note - Did we not deserve to win the league last year after Aberdeen beat us at home in the final game - we had done enough over the previous 37 games and in a league the ONLY thing that matters is the final standings.}



13 Dec 2018 16:46:09
OK that is the girls in and getting fed and watered before we head out to the "Parkhead Disco"
I have told this story before, my 2 fashion conscious, faddy diet, vegetarian/ not vegetarian depending on their moods girls, still want a greasy roll and chips from the chippy before the game. Then Mrs T moans at me lol
Got my bets on for games tonight
doing BTTS in Sevco and our game both evens coupled them with Arsenal -1 again evens
Got my bog standard Morelos booking at 11/ 8,
Enjoy the game everyone and remember NO LAUGHING when el buffalo gets sent off lol.

I was expecting Chelsea or Arsenal or one of the other big names but I will take Valencia who are 14th in their league having won only 3 games but have drawn 10 games so will be difficult to break down. A decent first leg at Celtic Park will make all the difference, and a nice sunshine break for all our fans in February.
