P J Crossan has signed for us. Anyone know anything about the lad.

1.) 29 Jun 2016 20:45:11
There's a Young lad with the same name at Dunfermline who plays up front not to sure if it's him, that's the only one I know of.

2.) 29 Jun 2016 20:53:34
Is this the lad who was with us before! Strange indeed.

3.) 29 Jun 2016 21:11:02
Aye its the same guy Hamish63.

4.) 30 Jun 2016 00:18:35
Was looking him up and watched some dunfermline tv vids and their young french morrocan boy looked good. . faisall el bahktaoui.43 goals in 92 games.

5.) 30 Jun 2016 01:06:52
Am sure we had that bahktaoui on trial or at least looked at him. Correct me if I'm wrong?

{Ed007's Note - Not that i know of mate but you could be right. We spoke about PJ Crossan on here a few weeks ago when someone asked about him so I'm not surprised we've signed him as we've been after him for years.}

6.) 30 Jun 2016 06:54:34
Been impressed with el Bahktaoui in the couple of games I've seen him play. Unsure whether he could make the step up but seems to be a real talent.

7.) 30 Jun 2016 12:52:35
aye his das pelican n his maws unmanned bit wee pats oan that bit haha.



28 Aug 2015 09:39:54
Morning ed, any truth in the Ryan Christie rumour? He's a decent young player.

{Ed007's Note - ICT are expecting a bid to be made at some point today.}

1.) 28 Aug 2015 14:37:25
If that's our ambition we r truly f@;&ed



26 Aug 2015 16:57:56
This Libor Kovak rumour seems to be gathering a head of steam. The lad was a £7m buy for Villa from Lazio a few years ago but has done little to impress. I suppose that phrase could be used to sum up our team.has done little to impress. Sad but true.

1.) 26 Aug 2015 17:31:06
Seems he's turned us down lol
Not even mediocre players are interested in coming lol
Just about says it all, who could blame him right enough!

2.) 26 Aug 2015 17:33:08
I don't get were all the papers are getting £7m from, he was 6.5 million euros, wasnt impressive at any previous clubs, waste of money,

3.) 26 Aug 2015 18:26:37
What does it say about our standing in the football world when even a player who can't get a game with his current club says no to us???

Like you say Bigbadjohn, lol

4.) 26 Aug 2015 18:57:26
He was top goalscorer in the europa league with lazio how's that not impressive

5.) 26 Aug 2015 20:47:28
He scored 10 goals in 58 games for Lazio in all competitions, 8 coming in the Europa League. Goodness knows who the opposition were. That's damn as near 1 in 6 overall. Do you call that impressive for a striker?

6.) 26 Aug 2015 21:44:20
Bestybhoy it says that he is earning or more truthfully receiving far too much money in the EPL .

7.) 27 Aug 2015 07:54:26
i hink that we need a new leftback. what do you think about that?

8.) 27 Aug 2015 10:01:02
Left back , centre back maybe 2 if van dyke goes and a striker.

9.) 27 Aug 2015 12:40:00
What we need MORE than we need players is some team spirit, a desire to win, a determination to win and total commitment from the players. That comes down to the manager, coaches and players themselves. Look at Malmo and the other SPFL teams who can beat us. Are they better individual players? Are they paid more? Are their clubs bigger? I think you'll find it's a resounding NO to all those questions but they do have a togetherness that we appear to be lacking. With Lenny in charge the players would have been afraid to give anything less than 100% effort in every game. We are seriously missing that. Sometimes players need a rocket in their arse and RD doesn't appear to be that kind of manager.

10.) 27 Aug 2015 14:38:16
What we need is the team to play as a team and not as individuals. We also need the team to fight for each other.

Not a bad result, we'd all have taken that at 1 minute to kick off. Disappointing to lose 2 but to regroup and hit back is something of a new experience for us in recent years.
3-0 would have been better than 5-2 but I won't complain :-)

Hail Hail.

A true supporter of Celtic (or any other club) will be well aware of the negative consequences of controversial behaviour. Yet for some reason there are people who think their personal feelings about religion or politics need to be spouted at Celtic Park.
Some people would make ordinary decent fans ashamed by their narrow minded, stubborn and pigheaded attitude.
Whether it's Palestine, Timbuktu or Chinese Taipei you feel strongly about then show it somewhere else and stop being a feckin dick. You are an embarrassment to our club and yourselves.

Hail Hail.

{Ed007's Note - Irony?

'Some people would make ordinary decent fans ashamed by their narrow minded, stubborn and pigheaded attitude.'

Who are you to tell other people what they should do and wtf is a 'true supporter'? Is that #celticfamily code for clueless sanctimonious douchebag?
If politics have no place at Celtic Park explain the OBFA and why are there political adverts round grounds in Scotland?
And the Palestinian flag is flown at EVERY Celtic game, home and away - so why should this game be any different?
Remember there are people in Scotland who want the Irish tricolour banned from football grounds because it offends them.}
I'm more embarrased and ashamed that there's people like you folllowing Celtic - a PC panty wetter who thinks they have some God given right to tell others what they should do and what they should think.
Keep politics away from Celtic Park?


It hasn't bothered anyone before, 2012 again,


So why now?}

1.) 15 Aug 2016 12:12:04
Guys, let's all count to 10 :0)

Everyone is entitled to there own opinions and part of that is the free form of expression afforded to us by our Western way of life. Regardless of whether its hate or love, we are only a hypocrite if we attempt to punish anyone who has different views to our own. That being said, if the Celtic FC football club requested that I as a fan did not do something in an attempt to help protect the club, then provided that request had no detrimental effect to myself, then I would be happy to oblige. What is saddening to me however is the clear amount of discontent i'm reading towards each other on here. We are all here for our love of Celtic FC, not because of religion or political view points. i'm sure there are other places where this can be fought over.

Personally I like hearing about us signing Ibrahimovic, schweinsteiger and Van Persie to our lovely blue bros. Its light hearted and good old fun. let's push the conversations back in that direction.

{Ed007's Note - He didn't give any opinion. All he done was tell other people what they should do according to him - the exact thing other supporters are speaking out against and have done for over 100 years.
Has the Cub mentioned anything about flying Palestinian flags? Have you seen people drunk or smoking? Swearing? Standing in seated areas? That's all things Celtic ask you not to do at EVERY match and are ignored by thousands, where's the panty wetters then?
If the Club receive any sanctions then it's about time they grew a set of balls and challenged UEFA, once again Celtic would be getting punished for things other clubs get away with every year.}

2.) 15 Aug 2016 12:44:24
Football is the biggest sport in the world played in every country, how is it not the perfect platform to challenge things that are wrong in the world political or not.

3.) 15 Aug 2016 12:20:45
A bit harsh there Ed . coming from west belfast I for 1 support the Palestinian people and their struggle. think bestybhoy is just concerned about the sanctions the club could face if celtic park is used as a platform to condone all oppression around the world. although bestybhoy is harsh himself on the people who have expressed there unhappiness at the treatment of Palestinians. I don't think as fellow supporters we should be speaking aggressively to one another even if we have different views on things.

{Ed007's Note - I'm from Hamilton, although I don't know what that's got to do with anything, where's everyone else from?
So it's OK for Bestybhoy to call other fans 'dicks' and 'embarrassments to the club and themselves'? It's OK for him to tell other people, grown men, what they should do?
So, you can tell me why that's OK can you?
If you want to keep politics out of Celtic Park why not start with the boardroom or how about Besty starts telling supporters to stop singing about rebelling against the Crown at the start of games? We wouldn't want to offend anyone now, would we?
The good old #celticfamily - setting double standards since Twitter was invented.}

And that my friend is a reply! lol tea and biscuits anyone!

5.) 15 Aug 2016 12:39:34
"Is that #celticfamily code for clueless sanctimonious douchebag? " Laugh of the Day.

& Amen, Ed007.

6.) 15 Aug 2016 12:41:03
Couldn't agree more ed 👏.

7.) 15 Aug 2016 12:45:58
Aye, nice one Ed. You did yourself proud with that rant.
It's the idiots that have caused our club enough grief over the years by deliberately being controversial. Football is a sport, the rest of the bollox is not. The Irish flag is our heritage. It isn't flown in an antagonistic manner by the club but some fans do use it as such.
I'm not telling anyone what to do and it certainly isn't YOUR place or anyone else's to criticise me for saying what a lot of fans think.
Being 'embarrassed and ashamed' by me is something you're just going to have to live with I'm afraid :-)

{Ed007's Note - At least it's fine by you to fly the Irish flag (whew) I've got it now, it's OK to do things you agree with but nobody has to do anything you don't agree with. Have you got a list the rest of us can use as a guide?


'Whether it's Palestine, Timbuktu or Chinese Taipei you feel strongly about then show it somewhere else and stop being a feckin dick'

That's two examples of you NOT telling people what to do is it?}

8.) 15 Aug 2016 12:46:32

I never said the club had issued a request. Was only illustrating intention should there be. I also refrained from making any kind of "siding" in my previous statement although I can see both your points of view. It was intended to remind everyone who reads it that, IMO, unless they are making a personal attack against someone then they are entitled to there opinion. Fly a flag, don't fly a flag; support green, support blue; read the bible, read the karan. IMO it shouldn't matter. Each to there own and all that

As far as the club goes again, I have not heard of or seen any requests, so why all the agro on here anyway. I have neither heard of or seen any warnings from UEFA so whey the concern there as well. Ed is correct, flags are flown all the time, everywhere we go with no indented antagonism or malice. Given the info we have at present I genuinely can't see why we just can't go about business as usual. Am I wrong?

{Ed007's Note - Spot on. This is being made an issue for one reason, to try and show our support in a bad light.}

9.) 15 Aug 2016 13:02:54
A was wondering how you hadn't yet waded in lol

Did you have a top night out on Saturday night watching a band or something and realise yesterday you were running low on the Tena ladies and refuse to pay petrol station prices for them Ed pmsl?

Is that the reason you kept quiet till today mate? -)

{Ed007's Note - I go to my mam's after Mass on a Sunday mate and she's got some family staying with her for Wednesday's game that arrived a day early so I was late getting home.}

10.) 15 Aug 2016 13:05:32
belfast celt, one of these days Ed is going to acknowledge the fact that others have valid opinions and that he isn't always right, although we may have to wait for some time.
Ed, you certainly have a tendency to aggressively spit out your dummy when you read something you don't like or don't agree with. That doesn't make you right or me wrong! :-)

{Ed007's Note - Man up and dry your eyes ya blouse. I'm taking a red neck for you here. A defeated man always resorts to personal abuse when shown up.
I actually haven't gave my opinion on it, all I said was you had no right to tell others what they should be doing. Which I am 100% correct on, so what did I get wrong?}

11.) 15 Aug 2016 13:34:04
The majority of fans don't want anything to do with controversy. They just want to support their club and watch football. Unfortunately there will always be an element of thrillseekers and those with a 'feck the rules we'll do what we want' attitude that cause the problems. They won't change either so the rest of us will just have to learn to shake our heads in disappointment. Unfortunately we're not really allowed to say anything about it because Ed doesn't like that bit :-)

{Ed007's Note - So now you're a fans spokesman? Who's this majority of fans you speak for?
You do realise it's people like you causing the controversy, why haven't you had a problem with the Palestinian flag being flown at EVERY game, home and away, for years? Is it because it's a Palestinian flag you don't like it?}

12.) 15 Aug 2016 13:52:38
Anything that involves your Ma's mate and mass is top notch in my eyes and if that is your routine even better (y)

{Ed007's Note - And you can't knock back the Sunday dinner. (yes)

13.) 15 Aug 2016 15:45:51
Bestbhoy. . think you have spotted something there that I certainly agree with. I understand completely the point you were trying to make and I don't think you deserved even half the beasting you got there. I got the same lately for suggesting in my opinion Scott Allan was classy. If Ed Bond don't like it you get chewed up. Thought he got personal too which he shouldn't. The sycophants turned up too. I defend your right to say what you think. Don't really think you were telling anyone what to do. like me you're tense about Wednesday and want the game to go well without distraction. And yes. UEFA will cane us. Not everyone cares about the CL. . BTW, just showing empathy here, not trying to fight your battles. You seem well capable but I don't agree with the treatment you got there.

{Ed007's Note - Oh diddums, did the bad man upset you? Grow up and stop being so childish. I wouldn't have 'chewed you up' if you hadn't been talking total garbage, deal with it or don't comment.}

14.) 15 Aug 2016 16:48:30
Lol. bang on what I expected. Ha ha. If your one thing it's predictable!

{Ed007's Note - I think the word you're looking for is consistent.}



11 Aug 2016 21:22:25
Apparently the Jambos are going to vigorously defend their player over the penalty we got last week.
Here's the thing folks: You can look at that incident from the left or from the right. You can look at it from the front or from behind. You can look at it from the top and you can look at it from the bottom. and there is still NO evidence to support the claim that he was touched or even breathed on by KT.
They chastise Broony for calling Walker a cheat when it is they who are trying to cheat their way out of an embarrassing situation.
If it was Sevco doing it I could well understand but I thought the Jambos had a wee bit more about them.

1.) 11 Aug 2016 22:19:07
What gave u that impression besty. They're the same if not worse in ma eyes.

2.) 11 Aug 2016 23:09:48
Scott brown was booked in a game 2015 for diving think it was Ross county, it's boring all the hype about it, it's a part of the game unfortunately. Everyone is a cheat nowadays. It's a tad embarrassing we make such a fuss about it, when guidetti n others have blatantly took a dive n won us points no one cared so much then.

3.) 12 Aug 2016 00:02:57
I'm with you on this, but at the time there was a niggling doubt that there was a very slight change in trajectory of the players foot. Look at what the manager says- ' he felt a contact AND WENT DOWN'.

To me this sums up the incident and Nielson's naivety. Just because you feel it doesn't mean it's there- and he dove on the understanding it could be thus interpreted. I think they've jammed themselves with the language. Besides, contact is allowed in this game, last I checked.

4.) 12 Aug 2016 01:55:41
Did sick note get a ban for it last season or before after video evidence? So why should it not be different for any of the clubs? I mean, it may seem petty, but we can't have one rule for your club and one rule for the rest of the clubs! I think that that is issue here! Why should a Celtic player be banned and other club's players not!
This is what is wrong with the SFA! And as an outsider it totally sucks!

5.) 12 Aug 2016 06:49:05
What makes the Jamie walker incident worse is the fact that there is clear video evidence which 100% clearly shows there was no contact whatsoever yet walker says there was, clearly made a fool of himself and neilson and hearts as a club defending his actions doesn't show them in good light either. If walker had been slightly touched no one could argue with the penalty being given. If walker hadn't have claimed to be touched, and the ref gave the penalty he could have turned up at the hearing and said" look I anticipated contact, tried to avoid it and in doing so went down, the ref makes a decision and gave a penalty" not saying it would've been correct but that would've been better than coming up with a blatant lie.

6.) 12 Aug 2016 09:12:33
It is daft that there trying to defend it, it's a blatant dive. I'm just sayin for some of us to get annoyed by it, we had guidetti take a total dive, n win us a pen. No punishment for him. So sfa are inconsistent, as we got away with it. There's none of this crap about "walkers a cheat" it should never have been said, so when one of our boys does the same we will be open for criticism, SB should no better as Captain. It's double standards.

7.) 12 Aug 2016 10:50:57
Got to say guys, i'm confused. Football is a contact sport.
At corners jostling and holding of shirts etc occurs and is largely allowed. If this happened anywhere else on the pitch its a free kick, yet not in the penalty box. An attempt to defend in the box which results in a touch or intent to touch and the player goes down will probably result in a penalty, yet the above is ignored or allowed. Are there degrees of fouls allowed in the penalty box or exceptions? Stoke and Juventus at corners are brutal yet seem to get away with it. Wee walker thought Tierney would eventually make some contact and dived expecting it and Beaton awards a penalty. Yet all the pulling at corners is allowed?

8.) 12 Aug 2016 10:54:56
Brown said what he said straight after the game which in hindsight may not have been the best time to comment on it, however after yesterday's hearing Browns comments have been vindicated as it turns out that walker is indeed a cheat. Like I said if there was the slightest contact fair enough, he goes down and the refs got a decision. As it turned out he went down under no contact but more importantly for me in this case he claimed there was contact which has since been proved 100% not to be true. As for the guidetti incident or in fact any other incident like it in the past does not make it acceptable and any player blatantly caught as was walker, they should be punished no matter the team. I also find it astonishing that a former professional who I shall not name publicly thinks that this sort of incident is perfectly OK in the game, what kind of message does that send out to youngsters watching it and coming through.

One of the world's best managers partly because he has had millions and millions to spend on new players every transfer window. I'm not saying he's not good but with the exception of when he was at Porto he has spent a fortune at every club he has managed. He wouldn't have that kinda money with us and for that reason alone he wouldn't come.

If it were up to me (which it isn't) I would give him a bye ball in favour of a manager who has been successful without mega millions to spend. HH.

To have the highest number of votes for option 3, F**k them! #NoPyroNoParty, kinda demonstrates the problem. Halfwits who take it upon themselves to do what they want are the issue. If people were sensible with pyros then there wouldn't be a problem to begin with but the sadly reality is some aren't. They see it as a licence to behave in whatever loutish way they want and they ruin it for everyone else so for me it's option 1 even though I'd ideally go with option 3. HH.

Chinks, every player has a price no matter who they are and every club will agree a deal if the price is right. There's nothing new in anyone saying that, it's common knowledge, however if a player doesn't want to go then they won't go no matter what money is on offer. HH.

Neither the club nor KT have to say anything to anyone until they have something to say. If he goes then he goes, there's nothing anyone can do about it but I'm sure the usual suspects here will be calling him a Judas if he does go. Some folk need to grow up and get into the real world about how life and football works. HH.

We need our best team for every game Old Bhoy. We can't overlook the importance of the SPFL in favour of Champions League. We want CL football for the money it brings and the big games but we need the league title this season. Hard to decide which is more important.
