FIFA to sanction countries for fans behaviour, UEFA and local associations the same.
Anyone who decides to wear colours of a team is basically regarded as a supporter of said team.

Am I the only one who sees hooliganism, racism etc at a football ground as a social/ criminal issue and not a football issue? Racism inside a supermarket does not mean the shop concerned is fined or punished, the individual is.

We pay enough for policing inside football grounds and they are the only ones with power of arrest so individuals identified should be dealt with by them. Criminals get phones and drugs into prisons, dangerous goods get onto transport.

Main point of this rant is that blaming the club is an easy get-out by the authorities on what is a social problem.

Perhaps Football fans should have the power to arrest other fans and just let everyone sit watching the game under fans arrest after a riot of arresting each other or the normal fans can lock up the idiots (including police, refs and dodgy linesman) then Fifa will have nothing to complain about😝.

In honesty i think we realise there's no chance ever of epl membership but i'm sure I've read on here about how celtic could become a big epl club if they got in which in truth rangers and celtic would because of the fanbase



17 Feb 2016 23:58:01
Just a thought Ed, If this EU referendum vote takes us out of EU, will that have a knock on effect for present and future European players as the free workers trade market would cease to exist. i'm sure they will protect it but it would certainly cause mayhem in the EPL if they could not sign as they currently do.


{Ed002's Note - It is not actually clear what would happen TT. There would certainly not be any overnight change but the eventual position would likely be a need for work permits and residence permits. In terms of existing EU citizens already working in the UK, there is no plan but I would think an amnesty would be the likely decision followed by a quota system of some type. A good question but no firm answer I am afraid.}

Might bring a sense of reality to English football if they couldn't just buy every player they want .



02 Feb 2016 21:57:02
Just got a rumour from a friend on FB saying Ryan Giggs is on his way to Parkhead as manager. Anyone heard anything? I'm assuming its just the usual time of season rumour.


1.) 02 Feb 2016 21:59:14
Seen bookies site have latched on to this remove company name of not aloud ed.



21 Jan 2015 06:08:57
My mate is a ST holder and word on the street is that Bolton will get Commons. NL wants a playmaker like him and his current record since he took over as manager is not too shabby and they look likely to back him. Results good and supporters are behind him.


1.) 21 Jan 2015 10:24:46
So because your mates a ST holder that makes story legit?

2.) 21 Jan 2015 11:15:54
I'm beginning to think that after the end of Jan, we will have a weaker squad.

3.) DN30, it was a comment passed on from a friend who has a few contacts within the club. No it does not make him an expert but I thought this was a rumours page where items like this may be of interest to others. Since he is not the manager or director I guess it does not make it official but it certainly is legit in as much as it is a legitimate statement made by my friend based on the knowledge he has.

4.) Today is the 22nd Jan. I think the transfer window closes on Mon 2nd Feb. As it takes Celtic about 2 weeks to get any players, when are they going to start talks WITH ANYONE.Or are they going to con the fans once again.



10 Nov 2014 00:59:18
I hear that there is a rumour going around that Crystal Palace are looking to bid for Broonie in January. Anyone else heard anything?


1.) 10 Nov 2014 01:46:47
Seen it on bbc but a genuinely don't think broonie would leave especially for a relegation battle

2.) I pray to the big man Brown stays. Red card at the weekend aside, he is so valuable to us. Just look at us wihout him, both at home and even in Europe. How much would it cost to get somebidy in like him? You're talking tens of millions in my opinion. Just get him signed up. Increase his wages if need be.

3.) Agree JimTim my mates used to slate me because I constantly backed him but needless to say they all big Broonie fans now, heart of the team the bhoy.

4.) Yeah I agree. imagine if he did leave though. who would take over club captain? I hope broony stays for another 3/4 years. no one in the current squad jumps out as our next captain right now

5.) I can't see Brown leaving Celtic or us letting him leave. I think it would take far more than 5M for us to part with his services.

From my understanding, Brown has 1.5 years left on his contract and the club are due to open negotiations with him to extend his stay.

That being said if a crazy offer comes in [far more than 5M] then it may test Lawwell's resolve.

6.) I thought his contract was up next summer wouldn't think he would leave for a relegation battle but you never know he's coming to the latter stages of his career and might look for a big pay day but I don't think he would but according to other Celtic player's he's a tight fisted bar-steward lol Broony Broony

{Ed007's Note - Brown's contract is up at the end of this season (June 2015) but the club has an option for another year on it.}

7.) Cheer's Ed007 I was half right atleast

{Ed007's Note - No probs.}

Well done Man Utd.
But they now automatically go into the CL Group stage even although they finished sixth in their national league.
England now have 5 teams in the CL, 4 of whom will automatically enter at the Group Stage, while teams who actually won their national league have to play qualifying games. DISGUSTING.


1.) 25 May 2017 09:37:46
Look on the bright side TT

It means if we get there we will have a greater than 1 in 2 chance of drawing an EPL team and I don't fear any of them.

2.) 25 May 2017 10:19:47
Highly unlikely but theoretically, you could have a team being relegated but due to their previous season position they get into EL then actually win it.
Now we can have a scenario where a relegated team automatically qualifies for CL group stage while national league winners have to play qualifying games. Its wrong, unfair and downright obscene.

3.) 25 May 2017 11:40:51
Should just be the champions of every country in Europe.

4.) 25 May 2017 12:14:36
How they can call it the champions league is a joke - at our and every other small nations league winners - expense.

5.) 25 May 2017 14:19:27
European qualification has always been a bit of a headscratcher. Same for us up here with getting a place after winning the Scottish Cup. That's a bit of a slap in the face for the team who has gone through a whole season and finished higher up in the league.



23 May 2017 08:37:46
Just posted a pic which was sent by my mate. It shows a newspaper article detailing the TV and Place income that clubs in the EPL receive.
Chelsea get £38+m for finishing top and an additional £30+m from TV.
Sunderland who won just 6 games get almost £2m for finishing last and £13+m from TV.
Disgusting as this is (and there is more money from various other sources pumped in to EPL) it did make me think about the TV deal we have here.
We have Celtic TV and sevco have their own version.
How much of an effect do these channels have on the negotiating power of the SPL when it comes to a TV deal? Do we make more from Celtic TV than we could get from an SPL exclusive deal with a TV company?
I realise we will not get anywhere near the amount the EPL gets for various reasons (quality being, imo, one of the least factors) but could we do better as a combined exclusive deal than we do now?
Just a thought.


{Ed001's Note - it is £1.9m a place prize money, roughly.}

1.) 23 May 2017 13:42:12
In the UK, we must be getting more viewers than some EPL clubs. It's the two EPL clubs combined though, in a particular match that is what we're competing against. Plus, I've always assumed it was the International viewing figures that pumped the EPL prices up and that SKY just sold the rights to foreign broadcasters? Still feels like as a club, we're getting a sore deal though.



18 May 2017 19:23:42
Lets hope we do this here. Its the biggest complaint I have in this so called 'modern game' Blatant cheating to get players booked / sent off / penalties etc. I would also instruct referees to automatically yellow card any players who gives it the 'hand up' pretending to flash a card to get a player booked.

F.A. approves retrospective action on diving.


1.) 18 May 2017 19:49:15
Tiny we already bad player retrospectively for diving.
No matches
the English fa came up here to research it.
The boy fae hearts and the boy fae ross county both got 2 match bans.

2.) 18 May 2017 20:00:55
Two matches.



18 May 2017 19:18:05
What a spectacular o.g. Swedish lower league defender Adrien Gulfo, tries to clear using overhead kick.




14 May 2017 23:11:26
I was sent this link by my mate.
£434 million tax dodge by celtic figures?



1.) 14 May 2017 23:52:47
Been through all this before, if your employer pays you a wage and you choose to use that money to buy 10 kilos of charlie to sell, it doesn't make your employer a drug dealer.

{Ed007's Note - Spot on, Stevie. Celtic have paid ALL their social taxes and the Club has no control over what employees do with their money. Wayne Rooney suposedly lost £500k in a casino, should Man Utd be held responsible for that?

Celtic have paid every single dime they've owed anyone in their history, what people do with their wages is no concern of the Club or employer.
Jamie's the man to ask about the ins and outs of investing and stuff but I agree with you, if you blow your wages on drugs or exotic extra marital nonsense it's not your boss' s fault.}

2.) 14 May 2017 23:54:09
Old news, nothing to concern Celtic Fc.

3.) 15 May 2017 00:54:15
its just deflection tactics from a known pro-sevco rag who know that the craig whyte court case is about to collapse and that the whole house of cards is going to fall down revealing all the crooked dealings about murray and co's attempts to cook the books.

4.) 15 May 2017 03:28:02
the article is from October last year sure if there was any substance to it it would be the daily front page with certain *Ahem* newspapers.

5.) 15 May 2017 10:25:03
Thought it was old but as it had just been sent to me I thought there may be something else. I don't buy the rag so went by my mates post.
Cheers Bhoys.

Boabie, that paper has the finest quality and balances just right in the hand when being used in the tenement cludgie lol
Regardless of source, a rumour is just that - a definite possible maybe.

I very much doubt it unless DD has the say and not PL. Sadly Celtic only seems like a wee toy to DD.

I am not believing any rumours until I see it in black and white (hope that does not infringe the racist comment rules) in the Sun. At least you know the report will be well investigated and she will have big boo. oops missus just came in, talk later.

Kevbhoy, I would hope you are right but if true this could work against us. He might hold back to avoid injury.

It's THE Ian Paisley.


{Ed007's Note - Did the old Ian Paisley get a vote on whether the new The International Ian Paisley could get in?}

just dump the car wherever and report it stolen. Go tae the match and then come oot. If not marked with a police aware sticker then drive hame. If marked they will probably have called your house to report it found. dead easy. BTW I AM just joking.
This was based on an American I worked with on the rigs off GT Yarmouth. He got drunk and ran his car into a roundabout in the early hours. He wandered home and got his wife to report the car stolen. He actually watched them remove his car from said roundabout from a wee pub just off it when they called to say they had located his vehicle. (This was in the 70's and there were a lot of rig hands from all over down there.

segregation is fair enough but why should the biggest supported team of the two share carry the biggest burden?
