Just read online that the Zenit game has just taken on even more importance.
It seems as things stand we will be unseeded for the final qualifying CL round, assuming we negotiate the other rounds naturally, however even a draw in either leg of the Zenit game will propel Celtic back into the seeded teams.
So at very least we need to draw at Celtic Park next week COYBIG.

Tim this mob from eufa have made it a closed shop it's ridiculous what the smaller nations champions have to endure so early in the season. It won't happen but a would love it if the club's out with the big 4 nations pulled out and let them get on with it.

2.) 09 Feb 2018 11:41:31
Well, we really tooled up to give it a go in the window. Didn’t we? To save a few bob we have jeopardised up to £40m.

A draw at least in the home leg should have been the goal. I don’t think we improved the defence at all and with injuries, could be worse than the formation who were found wanting in the cl.

If we fail to get the one draw and lose out on qualification, we will, yet again, have shot ourselves in the head.

We need to refind the form against Hearts, if we do I think we can get the point we need. It will be harder than it should have been, but, we are all used to that by now.

3.) 09 Feb 2018 12:45:19
The rule for that game is to keep Kokorin quiet. I’m sure we will take something from them at Celtic park.

4.) 09 Feb 2018 15:05:56
A draw at parkhead? Am I the only one who actually fancies a win at home at least? Positive thinking lads n lassies!

5.) 09 Feb 2018 16:47:40
Think we will beat them at home too, nothing special, as u say mo we should and could have been going into the gsme with a stronger side although i do like the look of commper who won't play unfortunately.

6.) 09 Feb 2018 17:58:46
If we play like we did at home against Bayern we’ll beat them. If we play like we did at home against Anderlecht we won’t. It depends on how much belied our players have, especially after their pride taking a couple of big hits against PSG.

7.) 09 Feb 2018 18:25:47
FFS somebody buy Magicpole a player.

8.) 09 Feb 2018 18:28:15
It’s all about how we take them on. If Musonda can turn it on and we manage to get out of the neutral we got stuck in on Saturday then we have a chance of a draw.

I don’t know where the confidence is supposed to come from as we have been mostly poor this season. The defence is always our Achilles heel and I think we have done feck all to improve it. Hendry wouldn’t get in before Boyata on his Saturday performance where he exhibited bombscare tendencies too.

Going for the cheapskate option once again leaves us no better than we started defensively wise. Which is criminal and potentially our undoing. Who knew the board would baulk at spending money on quality? I actually believed they would for once do it right.

Never again, a board of cheapskate spivs till the end.

9.) 09 Feb 2018 22:29:01
Magic zenit are in the el for a reason they may be better than us but stop being so pessimistic man we might just beat them.

10.) 10 Feb 2018 03:31:35
On paper I'm looking at the fit squad and it's not the best. I'm hoping we just get stuck in. It's one of those games where the worst could happen or big Eddie and the moose play a blinder and mcgregor gets motm in a 3-1 scintillator;) . I'll not go into outcome B.
I couldn't name any of thier first 11 and i couldn't tell you a single thing about thier form or how they play. There aren't many on here that could hold a half decent conversation with a fan of russian football about that league. The money is definitely there as are the wages and good sides are built from that. The other part that isn't taken into account is the money bump for players moving to that league. These guys are no mugs but we have palyed better teams to get to the same place they are now.
Time for bed :)

11.) 10 Feb 2018 10:30:56
I had absolu convinced myself we would get players of quality in the help the defence. To be honest I’m more pissed off at myself for believing.

As I said though, we play with the same tenacity and skill we showed against Hearts we have a chance. I just know that we could have been better prepared and another opportunity has been missed. The news about perhaps meeting a seeded team if we fail to get a point just out the tin hat on my frustration.

I have learned a lesson though. Nothing changes no matter who is in charge. That shocked me.

12.) 11 Feb 2018 20:51:29
Can’t wait til Thursday

If we beat Zenit which I highly doubt even with there break then a lot of posters can relish in there confident predictions however if Zenit win and if they win comfortably then please be quick to apologise to those voicing there concerns at the season of regression.



27 Jan 2018 20:28:58
Girls and I had a great day at game today, got invites into an executive box with two businessmen I know (yes both wore suits but were NOT bigots lol)
Anyway, they seemed to be in the know about Musonda, and said deal for loan is still a way off, Celtic want a longer loan deal, with maybe an option to buy, but Chelsea not keen on this and only offering any loan until summer, so deal may not happen.
Only a rumour and not what we Celtic fans want to hear.


1.) 27 Jan 2018 20:47:47
**** right off 👍.

2.) 27 Jan 2018 21:03:38
That crappy football sight inside futbal printed that at 4.30 this afternoon.

3.) 27 Jan 2018 21:21:50
No point in a loan till summer, but I think we'd expect the negotiators to try to hard-wire the option to buy, wouldn't we? Can't see Chelsea going for it, mind.

4.) 28 Jan 2018 09:58:46
I hope all of Brendans eggs aren't in musondas basket. if this doesn't work out i wonder who else is in mind? Has anybody heard anything? I think yound Houssem Aouar at lyon is a great talent and could be within our budget. HH.



26 Jan 2018 10:51:54
OK guys for all those panicking about our lack of signings, here is gossip from my Celtic Pools pal.
Apparently, a lot is happening behind the scenes with Lawwell and his team doing all the negotiating. Brendan is focusing on the Hibs and Hearts games.
But from Wednesday expect activity, rumour is Ross Hall has been asked to remain on standby for any medicals.
My pal expects 1 maybe 2 coming in and same going out.
Window in Scotland closes on Thursday next week, so Rodgers will have 2 days to meet and greet incoming players.
Only time will tell how accurate his info is. hail hail.


1.) 26 Jan 2018 11:06:54
Let’s hope you’re friend is right Timalloy.

2.) 26 Jan 2018 13:59:45
@KenLikeEh well apparently bids now being made. Press say
First bid is for Jack of Dundee. My pal had mentioned this in relation to Simonovic, buy Jack for around £1m then sell Simonovic for double that. We get a younger, fitter, pacy defender and get shot of an injury prone player.

3.) 26 Jan 2018 16:03:17
Do we really think Jack is the answer? I'm not sure.

4.) 26 Jan 2018 17:00:53
Not impressed with Hendry to be honest, no more projects please

First team players only.

5.) 26 Jan 2018 17:07:53
From what I've seen, he's quite handy. I like jozo right enough but there's something g not right about his fitness.

Maybe this will be for the best.

6.) 27 Jan 2018 11:09:40
3 disagrees.

Fast forward to this time next year and everyone and their dug on here be raving about how good Hendry has been for celtic.

7.) 27 Jan 2018 12:23:32
We all hope that would be the case and define key hope it happens if we sign him. Just not convinced.



15 Jan 2018 21:40:28
ED007 have you heard any more on Musonda, last week he was supposed to be going to Bournemouth on loan.
But I heard today we are still actively pursuing him, what I heard was loan with possible first dibs at buying him in summer, similar to the Odsonne arrangement, fee I heard was £500k loan plus £4.5m in summer.
Any truth in these rumours?


{Ed007's Note - If Musonda is fit he will be going out on loan, Tim and we are still one of the interested clubs. I think it might be nearer the end of the window before anything's decided at the Chelsea end.}

1.) 16 Jan 2018 09:33:58
He signed a new 4 and a half year deal last month. Highly doubt a permanent move would be on the cards. I’d imagine they’ll be a lot of interest in Musonda from both England and Europe.



09 Jan 2018 13:34:51
Alert: Celtic Pools guy gossip

Talking to my buddie today, and he was laughing at all the panic from some Celtic fans over our "lack of January signings"
He told me not to worry too much as deals are being negotiated, IN and OUT, but that probably nothing will happen until a) Celtic come back from Dubai and b) the last week of the January window.
Why the last week, well it seems players wanting away assess their options and make a decision to go.
Similarly, for players coming in, Celtic and Brendan will have their valuations on players and if these valuations are met players will come in.
So basically, .


1.) 09 Jan 2018 17:45:02
Was thinking that to Tim calm down bhoys there's still guts of 3 weeks to go.

2.) 09 Jan 2018 18:11:30
We should all be used very used with how we deal with transfers in EVERY window. We will squeak in one possibly two more players and see 1 or 2 players leave. We won't up with more players than we currently have and I don't see any major signing either. Lawwell has other plans in terms of spending the Champions League TV / revenue millions and the 10million banked from VVD.

3.) 09 Jan 2018 22:19:44
Wiltshire Celt, thank God Brendan and Peter have a better grasp of the economies of managing the Financial business of Celtic .
You probably are not aware that one Scottish team broke the 10m level when Rangers1872 spent £12m on Floe . You might remember that club has since died and I am sure you would be one of the first to pick over the bones to see who was to blame if the same thing happened Celtic .
One thing is certain the fans that bleated on and on about us not buying this player and that player would keep very well.

4.) 09 Jan 2018 22:30:45
Lack of transfer activity?

Commper and Morgan, 2 in the first few days. Cifci out.

I'm amazed at the progress tbh.

Normally its some dude (a midfielder) 4 days before the end of the windae rogers dodging questions.

5.) 10 Jan 2018 00:40:40
Cifci out?

6.) 10 Jan 2018 08:31:52
Well he did the hokey cokey. In out now currently shaking it all about in sunny motherwell.

ED007 what do you make of Zenit giving "4000 free tickets to academy players and their families" in part of ground which was supposed to be closed as a punishment by UEFA
Hardly in the spirit of things is it, simply making sure part of ground not empty.


{Ed007's Note - Well there must be a right few good Catholics in there if there's 4000 just from the players and their families!}

1.) 21 Feb 2018 16:22:22
ha ha ED007 my point exactly, methinks Zenit sticking 2 fingers at UEFA.

{Ed007's Note - It must be a loophole in the rules, good on them I say.}

2.) 22 Feb 2018 10:34:46
Dunno Ed, was the reason they got the ban in the first place not pretty grim?

{Ed007's Note - I have no idea.}



19 Feb 2018 18:19:11
Apparently according to my ex bear pals the "title race is wide open"
and now hearing that the Hibs manager is giving the same guff to the media.
Did I miss something?
Are Celtic not 9 points clear with only 11 games to go.
My ex bear pals keep looking into their Sevco crystal ball and their predictions are Celtic lose at Pittodrie, then at Ibrokes, gap is cut to "only 3 points" then "game on"
Even if that somehow came about, Celtic have both the huns and the sheep at Celtic Park after the split, so have the opportunity to rectify any points lost.
But my two ex bear pals have already placed bets of Sevco winning the league at 80/ 1 ( admittedly both only "risked" a tenner each)
I told them to bet at the Timalloy bookmaking emporium and I would have given them odds of 250/ 1.


1.) 19 Feb 2018 19:43:10
Have they erased the memory of wee lenny pumping them twice at the crumbledome Tim, and never mind coming to paradise they've to go to Easter road never easy place, and the mighty Hamilton put 3 by them and if the Hamilton keeper was up to it they might have drawn.

2.) 19 Feb 2018 20:33:05
I wouldn't get too stressed about it, opposition managers can hardly say anything else.
They have to try and keep their players motivated till the end of the season.
I would hope our manager would say the same if the roles were reversed.

3.) 20 Feb 2018 08:48:48
Rangers are rubbish. A bit better than the utter rubbish they were, but still rubbish. I have absolutely no worries about extending the gap and beating them at Ibrox and at home. The same for Aberdeen. Rogers will focus the top team to start giving teams hefty tankings.

Sunday was just too many changes and relying on too many players out of form or back from injuries. The fact we created next to nothing confirms this. Those players should have had more than enough to deal with a team of journeymen.

It was a reminder that if we don't focus we can drop points. Two draws at home with St J just isn't good enough. We need to play in the same way we did against Zenit. If we do then no one can or will get near us.

Let them delude themselves. They are in a league of their own on that score. Their pain will only be made more acute when reality calls. I will enjoy that very much. It's coming.



18 Feb 2018 19:02:44
Reading all the negative posters on here after a poor display.
Yes, Brendan maybe made too many changes which meant team never got into any sort of a rhythm, and after the high of Thursday, I realise a lot of fans were disappointed by today, but get a grip.
St Johnstone had 5 or 6 players booked I lost count, they were helped by a poor referee performance as usual. Maybe team had one eye on Thursday understanable, but we are still 9 points clear and I say to all the doom and gloom merchants on here, there is no way Aberdeen or the new club will claw back those points, they would have to go unbeaten till end of season and Celtic would have to lose 3 games and draw another one with our superior goal difference.
Trust the manager and the players to get the job done.


1.) 18 Feb 2018 19:21:21
We are a professional outfit and talk of one eye on Thursday is garbage. We have now drawn twice with St J and with all due respect should be beating teams like them at home. The team selection today was to rest some players for Thursday but these guys who came in should be busting a gut to prove to the manager they should be first choice.
It's not the end of the world. We're still in pole position for the league and it would take a major crash to lose it from here but it is so frustrating to watch especially the fans who fork out every year for season tickets.
This month and next will be a very crucial time for our honours this year.

2.) 18 Feb 2018 20:20:14
Tim if you have a season ticket then surely you must feel short changed watching that dross and yes it was dross and it's happened all too regular at Celtic park in domestic matches this season. Yes i think we'll win the treble but we pay top dollar and I for one would like to see better than that. i couldn't care less what team we put on the park it should always beat dross like today and we should be strolling away with this league rather than stumbling over the line like Ronny deila.



16 Feb 2018 12:45:00
A proud Tim happy after last night, and even happier to see that THREE products of our aceademy were on the field last night Tierney, McGregor and Forrest hail hail.




14 Feb 2018 18:40:10
Guys a really tasty game tonight over in Madrid as Real take on PSG
Over 1.5 goals is 10/ 11 (surely a shoe in with two attacking teams)
Ronaldo anytime is 10/ 11
Bale 7/ 4
Neymar 5/ 4
Cavani 6/ 4
The draw is 23/ 10 (you will get decent odds for 2-2)
Over in Porto you cannot fail to back Salah at 5/ 4 or Firminio 7/ 4 (Firminio is Liverpool top european goal scorer)
Liverpool 6/ 5 to win, decent I think as Porto not the strongest.

ha ha ED007 I was waiting on you biting back at all those nay sayers, and this "are you a season ticket holder" to justify their point of view is nonsense.
We all know Sunday was poor but most fans put it behind them and move on.
I am looking forward to next season already, as when all the injured players are back added to our new signings and returning players like Christie we should have a full squad able to interchange with no dropping in performance, I hope.
Can these negative posters not understand that Brendan was looking towards the next 2 games Zenit and Aberdeen, and needed to give the likes of Tierney, Simonovic, Lustig etc some down time to avoid more injuries or exhaustion.
People seem to forget also that european games takes it's toll mentally and physically, so the players need to be protected. Travellling to Russia playing a hard game, travelling back then having to travel again to Aberdeen will tax our players. Trust Brendan and our medical staff to look after our players.

We are still nine points clear, still in europe and enjoying the Scottish Cup in our run to (hopefully) a double treble yet all we get on here is moaning minnies, get a grip nay sayers and do what the genuine fans do SUPPORT CELTIC.
