When you think about it the Celtic team that won in Lisbon, had maybe two world class players in Jimmy Johnstone and Bobby Murdoch, and then 4 international class players and then the rest were good honest journeyman guys that you could rely on to do their job, but they had a manager, that they believed in, that they respected and they would follow his instructions, that inter Milan team were full of the Neymars and the Messis of the time, but Celtic out psyched them, out thought them and out played them.

PSG are nowhere as good as Inter were, and Celtic are nowhere as good as the Lisbon guys, but the thing is, if PSG play to their maximum and Celtic play to their best and throw away their inhibitions, PSG are there for the taking, pride comes before a fall, and they are so full of themselves, they are going to fall a long way.


1.) 20 Nov 2017 09:07:01
Sorry aindoh but if psg play in 3rd or 4th gear they will still beat us comfortably. If they are at their best then it'll be damage limitation for us. We need to play out of our skin and hope they don't turn up to get anything.
I think it's crazy to try and compare this match to our finest hour. This psg team are full of super talented footballers whereas that inter team were full of defensive minded footballers with the mindset of winning every game 1-0. 2 completely different teams.
Also it's wrong to compare both eras matches as there is a far greater gap between Celtic and psg now than Celtic and inter in 67.

2.) 20 Nov 2017 17:11:47
If PSG play to their best we’ve got no chance aindoh. Unfortunate but true.

3.) 20 Nov 2017 18:27:51
Aindoh you are talking about a team that won THE most coveted club trophy in world football.
Threfore I would suggest they were ALL world class, and for me the teams of yesteryear have no chance against the super teams of now, football has changed dramatically.

4.) 20 Nov 2017 19:14:56
Rayman although football has changed imo it's fitness and conditioning that's different . give that lions the access to the facilities and sports science of today and their class and ability would tell in any league or competition.

5.) 21 Nov 2017 13:02:14
aindoh you are dreaming.
We are so far behind them it almost doesn't matter how good we play in a one off game and how badly they play, we'll still lose on Wednesday. For us to get anything from the game will need something close to a miracle, and yes miracles can happen but they are few and far between that's why they're called miracles! lol HH.

6.) 21 Nov 2017 21:22:31
it wasn't naymar
it wasn't Mbop
it wasn't cavani
it wasn't di maria (wasn't playing)
it wasn't ben arfa
it wasn't draxler
it wasn't alves
it wasn't silva

I tuned in knowing all these players.

they had no week links anywhere, every position has practically the best player they can afford (which is anyone)

I was blown away by Rabiot and I had no clue who he was.

I am seriously not up on European football but even this "unknown" was world class.

I agree heart etc can win games, but these guys at half speed could win the cl.

7.) 21 Nov 2017 23:05:02
Can't see anything other than 90 mins of torture the moro night, can't say I enjoy watching us against those super rich multi billionaire funded clubs. Looking forward to a bit of a breather in the Europa and hopefully a wee run. On the upside lads when sitting through the torture the moro night just think that's how Sevconians feel when they play us.

8.) 22 Nov 2017 00:36:06
When I was a young lad my old man used to get a cabbie called Jim to drive myself and my brothers home to my mums some Sundays. Great auld boy, he talked endlessly about celtic and he had an old clapped out cavalier that other drivers marveled at the miles he got out of it. anyway he said there was lads at that time that turned down professional football contracts for danger money down the pitts.
That one statement says it all. No matter how good our team could of been in the last 10/ 15 years if players stayed, the point is that the lisbon team with today's money would of been dismantled and our history wouldn't exist. Psg are pretty much one of those game console/ current times dream teams. Keep the score down. Play negative and go toe to toe with anderlecht when the time comes.

9.) 22 Nov 2017 14:10:24
Self delusion is sometimes a good thing. Why would rangers fans stick to it so passionately?

I am looking to us to put up a better show like they did against Bayern. That is all we can ask.

If they fire on all cylinders and we freeze it will be a pummelling.

If we step up and fight and play, we will still lose but by feck I will be proud. This mob will win it imo.

Get stuck in Celtic and believe in your ability.

We do.

10.) 24 Nov 2017 09:39:33
PSG are nowhere near Inter? Are you having a laugh? PSG would destroy Inter.

The Green tinted specs are strong in this one. :)

Nostalgia can be guilty of creating false realities. That teams back in the distant past would beat the very best now. They wouldn't.

Even with fitness levels they couldn't compete. Teams like Barca, PSG and a few others would run any of the great teams of the past ragged.

I heard Bailly was also away too. We will have cut a fair bit off the wage bill with people leaving this Summer.

5.) 09 Jul 2017 19:02:48
Ha was kinda expecting that.



08 Jun 2017 16:06:10
I don't expect Brendan, to bring more than two players in, if we hold onto Dembelle, the team is playing well and is probably only lacking a truly creative midfielder, I would like him to give Ajer and Simuovic a try as a centre back pairing, if Hayes does come in I think he might surprise a lot of people with what he brings to the team, if the team from last season isn't disturbed too much.

I think it can make a real impression in the CL, I think what makes a great team is consistency of selection, players playing together, gelling, getting to know how each other plays, under Ronnie the team was chopped and changed, because squad rotation was the buzz word, and he was a believer, and so were a lot on this site, we can all reel of the Lisbon lions not because they played one game but because the majority played regularly, and the counter argument is that the modern game is faster and more physical, and you need rotation, but modern footballers are also faster and more fitter.

just look at the number of players Leicester city used last year, what I am trying to say is that we have the basis of a very good European team here, but we just need a bit more guile in midfield, but aye there the rub, where do you find it.


1.) 08 Jun 2017 17:27:51
At the moment I'd rather see Jozo and Dedrick as our CH partnership unless we bring an other CH with proven ability. I don't think Ajer is ready for and every game campaign yet. I would though like to see him get a few games under his belt.

2.) 08 Jun 2017 18:49:19
Id be quite happy with 2 maybe 3 signings of as good a quality as we can attract to scottish football. One of those signings for me must be wee paddy roberts providing man city and roberts himself are willing to make it happen. Just as important as new signings, we must try our very best to keep our main assets ie wee tierney, dembele, armstrong etc. If we can do that then i think most fans would be over the moon.

3.) 08 Jun 2017 18:50:55
I'd definitely like to see more than 2 coming in aindoh. We need a quality defender, a quality midfielder and another couple who will improve our squad rather than first team. Then the cherry on top wee Paddy!

4.) 08 Jun 2017 21:23:48
I think it will be 3-4 signings with 2 top notch.

5.) 09 Jun 2017 07:20:21
reckon a cpl of quality players will be brought in, definitely need a RW (PADDY HOPEFULLY) . and a playmaker, need to shift a few players also, with commons and efe away that's a good chunk of change saved on wages so far.

6.) 09 Jun 2017 08:32:10
Ed is there any truth to the rumour about leicster wanting roberts if mahrez goes?, lot of talk about it from down there apparently, meant to add it to previous post.

{Ed025's Note - its everton who are interested in paddy bhoywonder..

just noticed ACs interest in Costa - ends the Moussa rumour?

9.) 09 Jun 2017 18:39:15
Read it was a loan the were after. Still good news though as they wouldn't be sniffing about till Christmas.

10.) 09 Jun 2017 21:44:03
Moussa is staying put. if anyone is going its Armstrong.

11.) 10 Jun 2017 12:05:26
We're not lacking a creative midfielder. If Celtic can get rogic 100% fit then we will have 1 of the most creative midfielders in Europe! I honestly think that on his day, that bhoy could tear anyone to shreds.



14 May 2017 15:25:20
It is madness to think about selling Dembelle until it becomes a necessity, when he makes his full french debut, his value will skyrocket, it is also madness to talk about downgrading Griffith's in the pecking order for someone who is very much unproven as is the case of Solanke, probably won't come north of the border but if he does, hope it isn't another case of what happened with Guidetti.


1.) 14 May 2017 17:33:17
It's not madness, the whole point is developing the squad. Rodgers isn't a massive fan on Griffiths so he has to work for his place. I agree he's a very important player for us but if a better striker comes in it's only correct to replace him. I'm sure it would be the same case for solanke.

2.) 14 May 2017 20:01:11
Unless we get an offer in excess of £30m (which I can't see) then I would think the board would look at the bigger picture with what we could earn for CL qualification. I TOTALLY get the 'what if he get's a bad injury' argument. tricky one.

3.) 14 May 2017 21:03:39
I agree with your first point Aindoh. If Dembele is willing to stay, and I honestly think he is, then we would be silly to sell him this season. I think he will want to play CL football for us, knowing he will participate in every game and gain further experience. He appears to be a very patient and mature kid who is astute enough to know that time is on his side.

I partly agree with your second point. I think LG would and should be rightly pissed off if he was to get pushed down the pecking order. However, I will qualify that by saying that he's at a big club and big club's are fluid in their development. The playing staff will constantly change and hopefully improve. It is up to him to secure his place in the starting line up.

As for Solanke, who knows if he will come and who knows if he will be a success. The point is, if it isn't him coming to challenge our current strikers then it will be someone else. We should be embracing that sort of investment and improvement instead of fearing it, and so should the players.

4.) 14 May 2017 21:10:57
In brendan we trust a would bet we'll come out the summer transfer window stronger HH.

5.) 16 May 2017 01:06:15
Don't really post much but on the subject of Griffiths I feel I had to. Anyway I don't see what goes on behind the scenes but on the field you can hardly fault Griffiths for his contribution. If he hadn't picked up that injury I would have expected him to score 20+ even with his limited game time.

To even consider him being third choice is insane imo, if dembele was to leave or get injured long term I'm sure he would easily pick up where he left off. I hope Rodgers issue isn't down to his ego especially with what he said when he first arrived or down to him trying to stamp his authority although I do believe Griffiths should be doing as he is asked.

Hopefully we can get to a point where we have 3 top class forwards (demblele, Griffiths+1) as we did with Larsson and co. Neither are in the same league mind you 😉.

6.) 16 May 2017 12:49:35
Sutton, Larsson and Hartson, the hunskelpers.

7.) 16 May 2017 22:42:03
We won't get an offer of over £25-£30 million for Dembele as our Board will make it clear to any club who show an interest that a bid isn't welcome . Interest will be snubbed at outset .

Of course its no surprise that we have no idea who may be coming in, Celtic have always been good at keeping their cards close to their hearts and Brendan is keeping this tradition.

What are the odds of Hibs winning g 6-0,at the weekend, I mean, stranger things have happened.


1.) 10 May 2018 11:08:59
Knowing Hibs they would score five in the first half and miss two penalties in the second. They had a team 20 points behind them to beat and they shat it.

Lennon over emotional but it will tell him he still has a lot of work to do. Piss poor performance and defensively pathetic for both goals.



31 Mar 2018 20:05:46
I don't think Ryan Christie or Scott Allan, have much of a chance of getting a run in the first team when they return, which I think is a shame, I think if I was the manager, they would definitely be in my first team squad, as they are exceptional players, but what about offering them plus money to Hibs for John McGinn, who I think will become the sort of player you could build a team around, .


1.) 31 Mar 2018 20:37:53
1.5 million with no players is all I would pay for McGinn as he is out of contract next summer.

2.) 31 Mar 2018 20:49:06
Aindoh, How many games this season have you seen Christie and Scott Allan play . Probably no more than myself ( watching on the radio doesn't count ) . Now I know that I haven't seen enough of them to decide and I think our manager will watch them and have them watched properly before he decides .
I think he has seen enough of Allan to know he isn't Celtic class .
There is no point of signing players for the craic of it.

3.) 31 Mar 2018 21:19:47
£3m + Allan should be enough. Gets rid of him as he's clearly not fancied by BR. I would keep Christie as there's still question marks over Rogic especially if he impresses at the World Cup. Think Christie offers a better attacking threat than McGregor in the final third but McGregor is the better rounded player and stronger further back.

4.) 31 Mar 2018 22:08:32
From what I have heard, whenever Ryan Christie plays well - Aberdeen play well and he is often at the source of their attacks and goals. BR has also stated Christie has a future at Celtic - although Allen may well be used as leverage in any deals with Hibs for players?
It probably depends on the question of Rogic, Armstrong, Hayes and maybe Biton having futures at the club, to make way for new talent?

5.) 31 Mar 2018 22:39:18
Gaffer has already said Allen is done but Christie is being brought back to state a claim. Also reported Celtic looking to extend his contract for another year.

6.) 31 Mar 2018 23:37:26
Old Bhoy, is not about being Celtic class, is about playing people in their most productive positions, you just need to think back to how Ronnie, praise him, praise him, played players out of their best positions to see how some players would look less good than they could potentially be, Lenny is getting the best out of Allen now by making the full use of his creativity, something none of the Celtic managers managed, even Brendan, and Neil is doing it by playing him in his best position, changing the subject a wee bit, I really like Armstrong, and I hope he signs a new contract .

7.) 31 Mar 2018 23:47:27
And another thing, I think McGinn might well attract a lot of attention from down south, so don't think there is any way he will go cheap.

8.) 01 Apr 2018 06:25:37
Armstrong is the only real ball carrier we have who can drive at defences from deep. Brendan rightly called Tom Rogic the Magic Man. To move on both at the same time would be a big risk we do not need to take. Big goals at crucial moments are Tom's stock in trade.

9.) 01 Apr 2018 12:54:44
I think Rogic and Armstrong will sign new deals, maybe two years.

That may well be wishful thinking, but, I believe it. I realise that an even stronger belief that we would get defenders on who would go straight in was wrong. Similar to most beliefs, it was all in my head.

Hope we keep them though. Getting better in the CL will give them more chance of a bigger club.

10.) 01 Apr 2018 14:45:37
I can see both moving on in the summer. Ntcham has shown he is capable of replacing Armstrong. But Rogic will be tough to replace. Maybe Musonda might get his chance if that's the case but it still isn't a replacement only a stop gap until the following season. But if reports are true that'll be DDV, Boyata, Bitton, Gamboa, Armstrong, Allan, Roberts, Rogic, Dembele, Edouard and potentially Simunovic all going in the summer. First team squad returning would be Morgan, Christie, Ralston, Sviatchenko, Benyu and Ciftci. Can say the 3 latter look like they don't have a future either. So we've bigger problems than replacing just Armstrong and Rogic.

11.) 02 Apr 2018 13:05:18
Aindoh, Are you saying that Brendan isn't as good a manager as Lennon . Do you think Brendan couldn't find the place within the team that would have Allan a brilliant performer . Or are you judging Allan's ability from Radio reports and brief highlights .
Even Allan can look like a footballer under these conditions .
I am afraid you, yourself haven't seen enough to back -up your claims about either Allan or Christie.

12.) 03 Apr 2018 10:19:18
Aindoh, really? Scott Allan? So you want to drop any 1 of rogic/ Armstrong just to fit in Allan? first of all are you nuts? and second of all you must have realised watching a game/ listening r completely different as commentators usually big up anything in our own half for the opposition as if it's a goal.
On another note I assume you didn't celebrate the titles won by Ronny? Which would have included a treble had it not been for blatant cheating from officials. This despite him not playing Scott Allan and players supposedly playing out of position, odd that as kt played at left back rogic attack mid, broony centre mid and Griff up front and Gordon, lustig, Forrest n Roberts all playing where they should. Only 1 that played slightly different was Armstrong coming in from the left however we also had johansen at that point.
As for Brendan, he clearly doesn't fancy Allan, we just won a treble and are going for back to back trebles and u want to have a go cause he doesn't play Allan n Lenny does? reason Lenny plays him is he's found his level, he ain't Celtic class. Rogic is way better, I would also like to see paddy Roberts in that number 10 role but allow that 3 to interchange, but even if rogic, Armstrong n Roberts didn't resign I still wouldn't play Allan as Christie is better.
PS I have watched Allan play, not just hear him on the radio so that's what I base this on.



12 Mar 2018 10:46:38
Just watched the replay highlights, was definitely a red card, and it was deliberately executed, Jozo takes a wee look first, maybe the linesman picked up on the deliberateness of it and that's why he got excited, Brendan must take a lot of responsibility for how poorly the defence played, no point in playing guys in positions that they are no use in, the gulf in class between the two teams was obvious, was like watching a wee team raising their game against a team from a higher level, who were having an off day, defence wise, if Morales had been sharper, it could have been supercalifragilistic all over again.


1.) 12 Mar 2018 11:08:16
I agree it was a red card but he never struck that hard. Thought the guy had been smacked with a sledgehammer.
Stupid, stupid thing to do.

2.) 12 Mar 2018 18:14:15
Although I agree it could have been given as a red card a lot of the other decision were nothing more than mind boggling like McGregor on the Servco right hand side of the 18 yard box kicks it past the defender the defender steps in front him and they get the foul how does that work? And a lot more decision that were blatant help to Servco.

3.) 13 Mar 2018 22:31:03
Aindoh, it's more like the assistants bigoted blood boiled over .
He was an embarrassment to his profession.

I imagine W Collum would have been a very angry man on Sunday evening, he destroyed whatever little reputation as a ref that he has in his bias and corrupt display and with his assistant not able to control himself and at the end of the day it was all in vain Celtic won . Another memorable day 10 men won the league
10Celts against 13-14 Rangers and Officals.



10 Mar 2018 09:59:02
How can Steven Caulker still be eligible for Scotland even though he has played a friendly for England in 2012,whereas Scott McTominay is said to have signed up to Scotland by being included in the squad for the upcoming friendlies?


1.) 10 Mar 2018 10:20:50
What do you mean mate mctominaly dad is Scottish that's why is is able to play for Scotland I've not heard anything about caulker and how he would be able to.

2.) 10 Mar 2018 10:54:26
Caulkers granny was from Dundee, or somewhere in Scotland, and says he would love to get a call up from McLeish, just wondered how it worked as he has already played a friendly for England, or do friendlies not count, and does that mean McTominay, can still play for England even if he plays friendlies for scotland.? .

3.) 10 Mar 2018 13:43:57
Would love to see Scott Andrew Sinclair in a Scotland shirt.

4.) 10 Mar 2018 17:01:42
friendlies don't count has to be a competitive game and I don't see mctominy changing his mind since he had offers from Southgate to play for Engerlund aswell but choose Scotland.

If we sell Armstrong, the price should be the English market price, not this undervalued Scottish market price, let them pay the price or keep him till the end of his contract, if he stays he will enhance the team, if he stays and plays, he will help us go further in Europe, and the European money will be increased, should not sell him for anything under £12 million, even at that he is still a bargain, when you look at the prices paid for inferior players in England.

Don't think it's the coaching necessarily that improved him, it was playing competitive matches every week in a struggling Kilmarnock side, think he was man of the match in the first game he played for them, or in one of the first, playing in these kind of games will make someone or break them,

Think once he was fit, Armstrong would be more than a squad player, I would have him as an essential part of the midfield, I hope it's only a rumour that he is away, but if it is true, it means Southampton have got a bargain, and another example of Scottish based players being sold on the cheap compared to the prices lesser English players get transferred for.

I will be cheering on Aberdeen against Burnley, but they should do so much better than they actually do, do, is the problem McInnes,?, at least this time, the excuse of not having played many competitive games, because the season hasn't started, won't wash, as is same for both teams, McInnes will just have to get the players in a mindset, and convince them they are not playing The rangers, and pick the team and the tactics to show that the EPL teams are vastly overated, and get Aberdeen through to the next round.

"You'll never win anything with kids"


{Ed007's Note - And they didn't. Utd won the Premier League and FA Cup that season with a team whose average age was 26 years and 137 days (only players who played 10 games or more). Players like Schmeichel, Gary Pallister, Dennis Irwin and Steve Bruce were all in the team and not forgetting Cantona. Roy Keane & Lee Sharpe were both 24 as well. Ryan Giggs was 22 and so technically wasn't a kid either.
It's in football folklore now - like the nonsense about Keane ending Alf-Inge Haalland's career - but probably for the only time in his life Alan Hansen was right in what he said.}

Think there is a lot of young Scottish talent about to break through, at least Strachan is gone, (hallelujah) , and these young guys might get a chance under McLeish, but I will wait and see, as for the world cup, I think I will put my money on Spain.
