A few months ago I posted about a friend of mine and his business man pal who were friends with Brendan Rodgers both guys travel a lot and have footballing contacts in England as well as Brendan, I met my mate recently and he gave me this update. Make of it what you will.
My friend said Rodgers told him he went to Leicester with the board's BLESSING, £9m saw to that, it was only the fans who felt let down. Lawwell was well aware of leicester's interest.
On Shved, the Ukrainan winger, Celtic have high hopes for him and Lawwell is hoping it saves club money, as apparently moves were afoot to either extend Butke's loan or maybe make an offer, but Lawwell is hoping Shved can replace Burke next season.
On Bayo, it seems Lennon is not as impressed as Rodgers was, the present coaching staff feel Bayo is way off the pace and needs extra fitness sessions to get him up to speed, so next season is his target. Board are also hoping wee Griffiths is back challenging for a first team place also.
On new signings, apparently Rodgers had given the board names, some Lennon would be happy with, others not so. But Lennon is wanting board to get players in place quickly, even if Lennon is not the manager.
As I say all rumours and speculation let's see what transpires.


1.) 09 Apr 2019 14:58:21
The Bhoy Shved looks a real talent. heres hoping he can come over and settle he has a cracking left foot.
Bayo i think was always going to be next season even if Rodgers had stayed. Who would you fancy for the job mate? i seen the AVB rumours id take him in a heartbeat.

2.) 09 Apr 2019 17:29:19
Timalloy, there's nothing new in what you said. I think any of us could have reported something similar even without having contacts. HH.

3.) 10 Apr 2019 19:00:41
On the new Bhoy Shved, are we looking for him to just replace Burke- or are we looking for him to replace Sinky?

we really do need another LB Cover.
RB replacement.
Another CB and
another striker.
just for starters.

{Ed007's Note - Shved plays on the right, Peter so he can't be replacing Sinclair. Shved signing should put any talk of Paddy Roberts coming back to bed at least - unless Forrest leaves.}

4.) 11 Apr 2019 10:35:31
I don't think we need a striker unless one leaves. Eddy, Griffiths and bayo is enough.

5.) 11 Apr 2019 10:37:02
Rb and CB has to be priority. Potentially 2cb and cover at lb to unless Miller or the American boy is being seen as good enough for next season.



26 Dec 2018 17:10:52
What a game today, congratulations to both Celtic and Aberdeen for giving us a real Christmas cracker.
First to the game itself some of our play especially second half was great, but also some of our passing especially from Gordon, Lustig, Boyata and Izziguirre was awful, Gordon just seems incapable of learning from his poor distribution.
I hope Tierney makes Saturday as we really need him. But our fighting spirit, especially after that 2nd enalty decision, shone through.
But this is what we can expect from now until end of season. Never a penalty and once again a high, studs showing tackle which could have broke our player's leg goes unpunished, except for a token yellow.
On Saturday we go up against 3 of the 4 officials who are blatant "Celtic haters" Beaton, Ross and Madden. They are DESPERATE to stop us winning the league. How else can you explain the decision of the "random, impartial" fixture computer to schedule a) an away game furthest away on Boxing Day when the usual tradition is to keep teams local, and this is second year in a row this has happened. b) when have 2 crucial fixtures been scheduled away from home so close together. and c) after our european games Celtic have had 6 AWAY games in a row, 7 come February.
On Saturday I am placing BIG bets on a penalty, ordering off (at least one) and lots of terrible tackles on our players going unpunished.


1.) 26 Dec 2018 21:37:29
Signing Tim Casgne, Belgium full back.

2.) 26 Dec 2018 22:36:52
Hard on the tackle. Boy slipped and tried to pull out but bounced off ball. Tried his best to not hurt ryan.

3.) 27 Dec 2018 04:24:33
I bet anything that if it had been one of ours doing that tackle it would have been a straight red card.

4.) 27 Dec 2018 09:07:47
Preaching to the choir Tim; The 'random' fixture list is becoming so predictable - just like playing Motherwell away in midweek, immediately after the last three LC finals.
As for the consecutive trips to Aberdeen and Sevco, I would expect that we play both of them at home (back to back) after the split to mirror the half-way fixtures - but I won't hold my breath as the ridiculous split will come into the equation.
McGinn's tackle was high and he did slip on the surface, but you could bet your last pound that it would have been a red if the situation was reversed - and it was a very dangerous contact.
I expect much more of the same for the rest of the season especially with the appointment of the three stooges at Ibrox.
The bottom line as always is as long as we play to our potential and perform to the standards and quality we know we can, we are better than any opponent or establishment barriers in our path.

5.) 27 Dec 2018 10:01:56
Wee dels interview after the game and we all know he usually has a rant and moans about decisions but amazingly never mention the shinnie dive mmmm.

6.) 27 Dec 2018 11:02:28
He mentioned it later mally.
“I have seen it, I think there is a push in the back, ”
“I remember criticising Shinnie against Celtic in the past when he was nudged and didn’t go down.

“Lustig doesn’t need to put his hand on the back of Shinnie. Although what do I know about penalties! ”.

7.) 27 Dec 2018 12:19:43
He's close to lustig kev but he actually throws himself forward not for me.

8.) 28 Dec 2018 11:40:44
Slip or not Izzy incident was still a penalty even though it was his momentum that took McGinn out. Just because McGinn slips doesn't mean it isn't a dangerous tackle still on Christie.



10 Dec 2018 14:21:58
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.


1.) 11 Dec 2018 10:23:02
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.

10.) 15 Oct 2018 19:17:54
Come on Tim you are rippin our knitting. Get it tell pal.

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.

12.) 16 Oct 2018 01:29:18
I always look forward to your stories Tim. Keep them coming.

13.) 20 Oct 2018 21:54:38
I adore Tim’s posts, regardless wherthers the story stems from, they’re brilliant cross section views. Keep it up big man 😁✊🍀🍀.



18 Sep 2018 17:01:11
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.

I see all the comments below about Ajax. I have another take on things.
I am really in two minds, one positive and one negative.
The positive is obvious, a young skilful team playing great attacking football.
The negative is also obvious, their **** hooligan fans, who cause trouble wherever they go. Sadly, Ajax fans are on a par with Sevco fans, years of hooliganism.


1.) 17 Apr 2019 16:54:57
100% Tim, they're riddled with scumbags.

2.) 17 Apr 2019 16:57:04
Totally agree Tim absolute scumbag club and I can't bring myself to be impressed by anything connected to them.

3.) 18 Apr 2019 08:35:59
I love seeing a club upset UEFA's closed shop. Not Ajax though. Not ever. Their support make Sevconians look like angels.

4.) 18 Apr 2019 09:38:45
I wouldn't class their entire support as **** there is Ajax bars in Nijmegen and Armhem that have Celtic scarves on the walls. Sadly they have an element that are scum, like many clubs.



15 Apr 2019 11:52:56
As usual McInnes blames the Celtic fans, no surprise there, but we were close enough to the Aberdeen fans to hear some (NOT ALL) BOO young Christie when he was carried off on the stretcher, Mr McInnes what about condemning your own fans.
On the song some Celtic fans sung (and it was ONLY SOME) when it started the majority of Celtic fans DROWNED it out. McInnes is and always has been a poor loser. FOUR members of the Aberdeen contingent were sent from the field, he set up his team to KICK Celtic players, condemn that too Mr McInnes.


1.) 15 Apr 2019 13:40:33
He should really concentrate on his teams inept performance. He banged on in the media for the last two weeks how his team really fancied this game and it wouldn’t be a shock to see Aberdeen win the tie. Yet come kick off his team we’re utterly pathetic. That should be his focus. Yet again he’s been made to look the fool that he is.

2.) 15 Apr 2019 14:13:46
He has never once just admitted that they got beat of the better team always a lame excuse.

3.) 15 Apr 2019 16:13:10
Watch him after Celtic games - compared to losing to other teams.
The guy is a total Celtic-hater and looks to blame everyone else and their granny for his (and his teams) shortcomings.
There's a lot of it about at the moment in Scotland and Creepy Craig, obviously Slippy-G and Robinson of Motherwell are others that never lose with dignity or honesty.



14 Apr 2019 10:47:50
Girls and I fed and watered and now setting off for Hampden, girls have stocked up on snacks and juice as I think game may go to extra time, just as long as not to penalties as our record in penalty shootouts is not the best.




12 Apr 2019 12:38:57
Let's look at the next manager from a different viewpoint.
What is more important to the vast majority of Celtic fans
For this Tim, it is 10iar, having lived through all the EBT cheating years getting to TEN would be so satisfying. To throw all the gloating back in their faces.
So next question is who to lead us the Holy Grail.
Lennon "Gets" 10iar, would a continental manager buy into how important this is for us Celtic fans.
Also to my mind just now, we are a Europa league team at best, to do ourselves justice in CL we would need SIGNIFICANT investment in team.
I am undecided on what Lennon can achieve, yes he will get SOME money, my best guess is most of the £9m we got from Rodgers leaving, £9m sounds a lot but is about as much as any team in Scotland would risk. With several players out of contract or loans ending, our wage bill will be reduced also so there is some leeway there also.
Again guessing 3/ 4 permanent signings and a couple of loans again, good enough for Scotland but NOT CL.
Over to all you guys now
Lennon and 10iar or
Continental manager going further in CL.


1.) 12 Apr 2019 13:24:38
Good point Tim that Lenny "gets"10 in a row and if not him then someone who also does. What I like about Lenny is he will have the players running through brick walls for our cause. To be fair most of the present players would do that now anyway but the next manager needs new players who will buy into what needs to be achieved.
I think now is the time to go all out and splash the cash and if we don't get 10 then at least we gave it our best shot. Spending cash dosent guarantee success but the chances of blowing this great opportunity are slim with us already streets ahead and also spending money to make sure we stay there. If that happens then we should have a good team and success in europe might come as an automatic bonus.

2.) 12 Apr 2019 13:44:13
I don’t understand why it matters if a manager “gets 10IAR”. I want it as much as anyone but that wouldn’t make me a suitable candidate for the job. Surely bringing in the best coach we can afford should be the aim. Whether he buys into Celtic or not is irrelevant, if the are a good coach they will reach that objective.

I’m fed up of us chasing “Celtic men”. It’s been holding us back for years. We should be looking at the credentials of a coach not their nationality or favourite club. If it was not Neil Lennon, would anybody realistically be happy with a manager that Hibs were happy to get rid of?

Unfortunately it will more than likely be Lennon, the only times we’ve really pushed the boat out has been for an Irishman, which is when Desmond seems to be interested, but there aren’t any of those out there who excite me. Hope I’m proved wrong. Lennon will be a very underwhelming choice after Rodgers.

3.) 12 Apr 2019 15:51:54
I would have thought that becoming better in the Champions league woukd be the best way to get 10 in a row. If we make progress in Europe it should mean that we have a higher calibre of player which can only benefit our league form.
Andy makes a good point about getting the best coach available no matter where they come from.
Lennon has kept us ticking over but I honestly don't believe he is the best coach we could get.
I think we should be ambitious and try to improve, too often it looks to me that we are happy with being the best of a bad bunch. To me that is complacent and complacency is the real threat to us doing 10 in a row.

4.) 12 Apr 2019 16:33:31
He who ever gets the manager's job should be able to get us 10iar still don't think NL is the one to take us forward as much as I like him the performance isn't any where as good as it should be under his reign this term and that is what we should look at not his performance last time he was here. Heart can't rule our heads in this He can't even have an excuse about not knowing the players we have.

5.) 12 Apr 2019 16:57:18
I am glad the decision on who should be the new manager is not mine to make and I will support whoever it is. I agree with Timalloy in the sense that the 10iar is a more realistic and achievable trget as I cannot see us winning the Champions League although I love European footbal and want us to improve on the last 32 of the EL. It seems to me that many of the big name managers around have a very short lifespan at any given club before moving on as they either run out of ideas or don't get sufficient funds to buy the players they want.

6.) 12 Apr 2019 16:57:29
I think a lot of you seriously underestimate Neil Lennon. He won 3 titles for us and a Scottish Cup, or was it 2 cups? He also got us to the last 16 of the CL, twice. Despite my disappointment at Rogers behaviour, he was an outstanding manager and it’s unlikely we’ll see that calibre of manager again for a long time. We should be more than happy to have someone of NL’s ability and commitment in charge and let’s remember, he’ll stick by us through tho and thin.

7.) 12 Apr 2019 18:30:52
COYBIG If we had another intrim manager in place just now not NL until the end of the season would you still think this guy should be offered the job for next year? given the performance so far that he has since taken over form BR And doesn't have an excuse about not knowing the players we have. Not saying your wrong about him just IMO he would be wrong for us going forward.

{Ed007's Note - That's a great point, Tony. Would people want Lennon as manager if he was still at Hibs? I mean what's he learnt from managing Bolton and Hibs that will make him do things differently this time, has he improved as a manager since he left?
I don't think he has and it'll be the same turgid football we were all moaning about in 2014 if he is appointed.}

8.) 12 Apr 2019 18:37:00
COYBIG I’m basing that on his time here previously and everywhere else he has been. Also Lennon qualified for the CL twice I believe and the second time we only had 1 win, certainly didn’t reach the last 16 twice.

He was never really qualified for the job, and would we even be considering him now if he hadn’t played for us? As much as I appreciate him seeing us through the season he is an average coach, who is only being considered as he is a Celtic man. Would you not rather have a quality manager in charge who may leave in a couple of years than an average one who would stay for the next 25?

We have the finances to bring in another Rodgers. From what AVB’s agent came out and said today it sounds like something he’d consider. Whether we’ll ask the question, I doubt it. The board will continue underwhelming appointments as long as fans are happy with “Celtic men” in charge.

9.) 12 Apr 2019 18:45:32
In the log run, someone who can get us further in Europe benefits the club and supporters more than 10iar. More money coming in to the club and a higher calibre of player for us fans to enjoy watching.

10.) 12 Apr 2019 18:53:35
What's he done since

11.) 12 Apr 2019 19:16:40
What had Rodgers done hee haw . still waiting on someone coming up with a viable name for the job btw.

12.) 12 Apr 2019 19:53:07
I don't see where the Lenny bashing is coming from.
Bolton had no money and no manager would have done any better.
He maintained stability in hibs and once again done a good job.
I have maintained that Celtic will get better as the season unfolds.
Our best players are getting fitter and I think we will go from strength to strength.
At times this season we have struggled without our key players KT, Rogic Christie, Edouard and McGregor.
Now they are back I expect to get the 3treble easily.
The one thing Lenny has over Brendan is we always look as if we are going to score and win, no matter how long it takes. At times under Brendan we could have played all night and not scored because he would never go route one.
Even on Saturday when the board went up, I still believed we would have scored in those 3 minutes, the players have proved they are with Lenny until the last kick.

{Ed007's Note - Have you ever thought about writing they wee verses you get inside cards? 🤢🤢

13.) 12 Apr 2019 21:15:38

{Ed007's Note - 😋😉

14.) 12 Apr 2019 21:15:40
It's not Lenny bashing but for me that's his limit Hibs and Bolton no disrespect to them and as far as Bolton was concerned he knew what he was getting into before hand. Tactically for me he isn't Celtic class NOW just look at the games he has taken this time around we have just squeezed wins last gasp where most of the time we should be hammering them But this is a rumour page and good that we all have our own opinion.

15.) 12 Apr 2019 22:07:56
Lennon isn't my choice of manager but people always judge a manager on what they achieve and never seem to look at their circumstances.

Lennon came in after mowbray and zombies had won titles since strachans last year. After mowbray he had an entire squad to replace and had very little money to do so.

Ok they went bust but we were still ahead that season before a deduction. He managed on a budget to turn mowbray side into a CL group side again.

2. Bolton - hardly worth mentioning as their finances were so bad he had to ask likes of Heskey to play.

3. Hibs - in the lower division. Gets them up and mid table. On their day playing nice football. Not as if he walked into a golden Hibs side.

4. Comes into Celtic interim the first ever time a manager has left us the way he did. Players playing a system very different to his and without a transfer window to change it.

Yet he's got us key results and secured the league, which could have went the other way had we messed those games up.

I'm not saying he's my choice for manager but just that some of the abuse he's got from his time now and his time before is nothing but revisionist nonsense tbh.

He achieved more in Europe with Celtic than Brendan Rodgers ever did between both his Celtic and Liverpool jobs

Yet Rodgers got his haw maws licked at every turn, even excuses made for him when we get humiliated 7-0 etc.

16.) 12 Apr 2019 22:33:54
Tony, Lenny won at St. Mirren, Hearts and Hibs,3 grounds Brendan didn't win at this season, never mind hammer them. In fact Brendan has never won at Hibs against Lenny. Fair enough his team couldn't get past a defensive Livingston team but then again neither did Brendans team.

17.) 12 Apr 2019 23:21:33
Those who prefer better than Lennon should be careful for what they wish for .
It's easy to thing there are many Managers who would have a better reputation than Lennon . Board could sign him and he could bring in many talented players . Everything would appear great and we wouldn't be able to wait until start of season . Then it all could go wrong and our marvellous manager and great players could flounder in the rough and tumble SPL.

Many fans could panic and suddenly early season nerves and adjusting to SPL football could become more permanent due to rumbles of abuse from fans and lose their confidence . Does the board stick with their " big name " manager and expensive squad, or do they panic and get rid of manager before number 9 goes awry. Stick& lose it, change and also lose .
Couldn't happen remember Rangers 1872 and Paul le Guen?

On the original choices offered.
To do better in Europe I am assuming you mean the Champions League.
To do that, we have to win the league which means 10 in a row.
So Continental or otherwise, they have to deliver the 10 iar.

Tony, if he was still at Hibs I probably wouldn’t want him but only because I don’t like the idea of poaching managers from other clubs, especially Scottish ones. I actually thought for a while Hibs under NL were a fantastic side, probably second best in the country on their day.

Andy, I stand corrected, he only made the last 16 once, although neither Rogers or MON managed that and they both had far bigger budgets. He also got us our first victory away from home in the group stages. I believe the team isn’t currently firing on all cylinders because Neil is reluctant to change the style of play so late in the season when we have so much to play for.

I think if he’s the manager next year he’ll change it totally and that’s maybe what he should be judged on. The big problem with the high profile managers is that they’re only around for a couple of years and then they move on. Every time that happens, you have to clear out the players and bring new ones in and you rarely show a profit in these situations. I’d prefer stability where we develop the squad and make a profit in the transfer market at the same time.

Tesla I agree that in a very unusual situation where a manager has been brought in as interm manager for a team that is looking a certainty to win league, it can be difficult. But any manager going into such a position will have done his homework and for Lennon not to see that Edouard is a one position player (a striker and not a 10) raises alarm bells.

Ollie Burke is not a striker, he is extremely overrated. Weah offers a lot more and is A game changer yet seems to feature less.

Phil. Lennon has to play players the way Rodgers has been playing them.

It's far too late in the season to be making changes.

If Lennon comes in I'd expect a tougher midfield in central areas. That's what we are desperate for.

I've had enough watching our tippy tappy team get bullied when our plan A doesn't work.

Lesley, Wanyama, Brown was the last time we had that in the midfield and it was perfect to let the creative guys play up top.

That's why Rodgers sides get gubbed. Even at Leicester he's played 2 decent sides in Watford and Newcastle and Newcastle have an average squad but an experienced manager.

Lost both.

10 in a row. Europes a bonus.

Didn’t wim Jansen appreciate stopping the 10IAR in the 90’s we’re all glad (and relieved) when he did, but it would have been magical if tommy burns achieved it.

Lennon loves Celtic and although i would like to see us being more ambitious (and having CL progress and 10IAR) I will not be disappointed to have Lenny deliver the 10IAR and worry about Europe later.

Although the money is great, club recognition and attraction for players, 10IAR is my personal holy grail. Growing up in the 90’s in the north east of Scotland all the football fans support rangers (glory hunters) or the sheep (living in hope of a fergie return) , Celtic were considered so inconsequential that I couldn’t even get involved in a playground scuffle for supporting the tic.

I remember the arrogance of the oldco and can’t wait for the history books to return us to the top of the ‘in a row’ bragging rights.

You may think that’s a bit desperate but that’s my belief.

Just imagine Lenny doing the press after 10IAR
Here we go.

24.) 13 Apr 2019 14:43:39
I don't understand this obsession with 10iar, without any progress in Europe,10 iar, just underlines how poor the opposition in Scotland is, if Celtic don't become a team to be feared in Europe, a team, other teams want to avoid in the draw,10 iar is meaningless, winning a treble treble has much more meaning, it shows a consistently, a concentration of purpose, an unbelievable intent, which is amazing, even playing weaker teams is hard to win knock out competitions, I say give Lenny the job, let him bring back the thunder.

Kill two birds with one stone. Aim for Europe and we will walk Scotland anyway.

Horgan is such a smart ass, he told the jambos that onions are the only food that can make you cry.
So they threw a coconut at his face.

ED007 what else is it then. I hear rumours from not just one site All of us hear different rumours every day. This cynical Tim thinks Lawwell will choose the CHEAPEST and less problematic person. A manager from abroad will cost more (even though money is there) and will want a decent transfer budget.
Lennon will probably cost half what Rodgers was on and Kennedy and Duff are already on wage bill, Lawwell will give Lennon SOME cash but not as much as say a Benitez would want.
OK ED007 give us your honest opinion do you think Lawwell and the board will spend big money on a european manager and give him a big budget?


{Ed007's Note - No I don't and I've never said I that I thought they would. There's rumours and then there's the sh1te the begging tramp writes - there is a reason he makes all this stuff up.... If it wasn't you that sent it in I would just have deleted it because of the source, it's like saying you read it in The Daily Star.}

Guys was just going to post about next manager.
Rumours going about that Lawwell has already promised Lennon one year contract extension.
All these names being bandied about suits the board, as it looks like they are searching the continent, whereas Lennon is in the hot seat, and only Lennon can lose job if he screws up.


{Ed007's Note - It's not really "rumours going about" when it came from a filthy begging conman that charges you to post on his blog though is it?}

@Mally he came off at end of game on Sunday clutching his hamstring, I think Celtic's medical team had a word with McLeish, he should not have even travelled such a long distance with a muscle injury.
