Hi lads long shot but does anyone know of a bar in Amsterdam I'll be able to watch the Astana game.


1.) 12 Aug 2017 12:57:58
Molly Malones shows games. Its on bt sport so should be easy enough to find a bar showing it.

2.) 12 Aug 2017 13:14:33
theres plenty bud, id imagine the bulldog franchise would have it on.

3.) 12 Aug 2017 17:00:36
Sound lads I know the bulldogs well so that's easy.

4.) 12 Aug 2017 17:36:59
No offence bhoys, but I find these posts annoying can none of these guys read pub signs or chalk boards lol, I have been to Benidorm Prague Berlin Barcelona the dam fuengirola and never had to ask on a forum where to watch a game.

5.) 12 Aug 2017 19:30:33
FFS Thommy it's called a forum for that reason. So fans can help each other out. It's not always easy to find a decent pub showing the game. I was in Kos a few years back and missed an important game because I couldn't find anywhere that was showing it and believe me, I looked! I'm sure if I'd asked back then I would have got some help.

Wouldn't accept any bid for dembele atm or in the summer if he's still happy to stay even if we got £30 million how much would really be reinvested in players, half if lucky? Would much rather another crack at champions league with him leading the line




13 Aug 2016 17:07:57
I've seen So many on here say something to the extent of "whatever Rodgers decision I'll put my faith in him" can I ask why? Yes we've made some exciting signings and spent a bit of money but what has he ever done in his managerial career to be so blindly followed by our fans? One good season in the epl with the best cf in the world and they bottled it. My point is if only our fans put this much belief behind RD who was obviously restricted compared to what BR has been. Imagine if it were ronny who got that result against red imps there'd have been a boycott.


1.) 13 Aug 2016 17:38:44
Bottom line is under the last 6 months of RD tenure it was by and large awful to endure, he struggled badly to change things on a regular basis sure he was short changed at the boardroom level, but him and him alone chucked it

It needed something new and we were never going to accept being short changed this the round as a Celtic fan for me this has helped him and by and large has hit the ground running

RD is away thanks for your time, all the best in your next job in Norway but the fact is BB had we not got someone of BR calibre in it would or could have been the BOARD that were boycotted that is why I was always confident they would push the boat out this time round 👍🍀.

2.) 13 Aug 2016 17:42:56
So you are saying that a manager who may have been mediocre at his last club cannot succeed at his next? Man U must be cacking it now as Mourinho didn't exactly do well at Chelsea last season? For the first time in a while there is a real belief that Celtic can do well this season. That simply wasn't there during RD's reign and that was not just his fault either. The board went cheap with Ronni because there was no domestic challenge. Backfired spectacularly with our European campaigns though.
We need to give a new manager a chance, we have with every other one. (Even Barnes) !

3.) 13 Aug 2016 17:44:07
Ronny deila never had plan b or c. What we have seen from rodgers is that he ain't afraid to change formations etc but i do agree with the we should trust him quote.

4.) 13 Aug 2016 17:59:30
What is it with us Celtic fans at present? Every signing questioned. Every manager appointment questioned. Every managerial departure questioned. Every team selection questioned. Every contract extension questioned.

We live in an age of extremes. Such and such is dreadful and will never improve. Such and such is past it. Such and such is only interested in their own progress and profile.

What we have now is a little bit of hope. Hope that performances will improve. Hope that entertainment levels will improve. Hope that we will positively better in 6 months time compared to where we are now.

It's all positive. No guarantees but it beats where we were this time last year does it no and for that alone we should be thankful.

5.) 13 Aug 2016 18:02:24
I can see where BB is coming from. It was interesting that a scrappy 2-1 win last week was a tactical masterclass where as last season a scrapoy 2-1 win would have been dire.

6.) 13 Aug 2016 18:09:07
Birminghambhoy what a pointless post. What had any of our previous managers done in their managerial careers before they came to us? Jock Stein, Billy McNeil, Davie Hay, Martin O'Neil, Gordon Strachan to name a few never had huge success before they came to us. If you have watched the team this season anybody can see there's a vast improvement in our style from the last 3 or 4 years and once everyones fit we are only going to get stronger.

7.) 13 Aug 2016 18:23:53
JT, RD would never have had that tactical change in him against Hearts IMO it would have ended up a draw.

8.) 13 Aug 2016 18:28:00
There are some 'fans' of our club who won't be pleased and won't stop whinging until our matchday line-up is as follows:





Manager: GOD

And even then they'll be complaining that they can't identify who is playing well and who isn't because they all have the same name and they look identical.

Hail Hail.

9.) 13 Aug 2016 18:36:01
Besty but at least Timalloy could have a bet on Man of the match 😂👍.

10.) 13 Aug 2016 18:40:55
Man are you having a laugh, Martin oneill wasn't all that decorated till he came to us. I'm sure Brendan knows this is a very good chance and the choices he makes I'll stand by them, same as I did when mon and Lenny were here. Ktf.

11.) 13 Aug 2016 18:53:36
birminghamboy if you had been through as many bad seasons as I've witnessed you would be happy so far some of the years when i was younger jim out of the royal family would be a step up and i know the film all i'm saying is give the guy a chance he not a puppet like deila.

12.) 13 Aug 2016 18:58:21
I think we all could Jamie! :-) lol.

13.) 13 Aug 2016 19:01:55
You only need to listen to BR s interview after the hearts game, when he got asked something about preparing the players, and he said something about getting the players mindset tight, and compare Ronnies, praise him, praise him, gungho way of trying to get the team to play his way, Ronnie was many s thing, but he was never a competent manager.

14.) 13 Aug 2016 21:14:28
Besty some might say that team is non existent haha.

15.) 13 Aug 2016 21:24:01
Martin oneil wasn't decorated before he came here?
He won 2 league cups and got Leicester into Europe before celtic.

16.) 13 Aug 2016 22:24:16
Some Celtic fans have got carried away by the praise bestowed on Celtic supporters by UEFA and FIFA after Seville . No longer content on supporting the team some fans want to question every decision made by Manager and Board, no doubt some think they could do a better job in either position.

17.) 13 Aug 2016 23:25:36
Birminghambhoy i think the key point is he has the fans united, something that we have not seen in seasons. The reason for this is the team are getting results, certain players look revitalised and there is a high morale. I hold my hand up and say i overreacted calling for his head after Lincoln imps defeat, honestly thought the worse. He has changed club for the better in short space of time, things are going to continue to improve with that said he's got my backing.

18.) 14 Aug 2016 01:58:43
It's not being anti celtic doubting every single thing that we do now and challenging it. Some are worse than others but but we all have a point and a reason for it. Our club has a lot of ground to make up and for anyone to say we have made the right decisions in the last few years and backed them blindly is a muppet. By the time we all pack it in and snuff it we will all have spent 10s of thousands of pounds added up, buying tickets, pints, travelling even if it's taxis to your mates or a boozer!
If we are pish I will complain and if we are good I'll be top of the world for a few days. We are all sick in the head lol. Wouldn't swap it.

19.) 14 Aug 2016 14:59:40
Pointless post Birminghambhoy. I think most of us put faith in deila also, as for lack of experience or trophies. Rodgers has worked his way up from Chelsea youth development to reading, Watford, Swansea, to Liverpool, and now celtic, all in a relatively short space of time. br will bring trophies to parkhead. Since when is it a crime to put blind faith in a manager? We do it with every management appointment! that's why were the best fans in the world laddie hh.



17 Apr 2016 14:51:19
Roberts was absolutely awful and should have been taken off at half time, ES should have started this game anyway and the only time we looked bothered was when we were behind as soon as we equalised we sat back like penalties was our goal.


1.) 17 Apr 2016 17:02:35
Agreed that Erik should have started but please lay off the young lad Roberts. I thought he did really well at times and was certainly one of our most potent attackers. He looked gutted after his miss and I really felt for him. As someone posted earlier, he needed an arm around him at half time but it didn't look like he got one. Please remember the lads age. A multi million pound player he may be but he didn't ask for that label. He's just a bairn mind. So what if he missed a gift chance under pressure, he'll learn from it. At least he actually showed some emotion and passion. unlike so many others that were wearing the hoops today. Too many imposters in our team. My last tuppence worth is that Broony shouldn't be near a Celtic shirt at the moment, never mind having the armband. A leader? An inspiration? A driving force? So disappointed in the team today, we were so bad from start to finish and it's not the first time a lower league side have raised their game to have a go at the champs. Fair play to them too. only 4 years old and they've made it to a cup final. Is that another record? :D.

2.) 17 Apr 2016 17:27:27
Roberts was awful from start to end gave the ball away countless times and u could see his head dropping the longer it went on, it wasn't his day and ronny should have seen that and put on a more experienced head cus Roberts did not handle. the pressure of. the old firm it's as much RD fault he shouldn't have put a kid in who wasn't ready.

3.) 17 Apr 2016 18:18:54
Awful? Really? I think there were plenty other candidates more deserving of that tag, rather than the young lad Roberts. So he missed a sitter, big wows man. Where were all of our full internationalists like Brown and Lustig whilst this complete capitulation against a team of charlatans was happening? Don't blame the bairns, blame the men that should have done better!



07 Feb 2016 21:18:41
Can someone explain to me what David moyes has done in his managerial career to make everyone think he could be our saviour, what has he done got Everton in the top 4 once. that's the type on innovative manager we need hahaha pmsl.


1.) 07 Feb 2016 21:43:09
Hey folks new on this been reading it for a long time. To answer your question. What did strachan do before he was celtic manager?

2.) 07 Feb 2016 21:46:10
He got Man Utd into Europe and avoided relegation with Real Sociedad.

3.) 07 Feb 2016 22:00:22
I agree about Moyes, he wouldn't be my choice either! I think the attraction with him in England was the fact he was so frugal, - the budget Kenwright gave him was one of the lowest in the league! He is a great judge of player, I also think his ideas are a little draconian, I wouldn't say he's backward but when you hear him speak he does come across out of touch a bit! Supposedly the sessions he put on at Utd had all the players mystified, I think they used to take the p•ss out him big time! I think he would improve us, especially defensively, I think he's out the George Graham school of defending. I just think his level is more mid table of the English Premier League! He obviously wouldn't have got the Utd job if Fergie wasn't the manager! I also have to say I read a few posts earlier, and I like ParadiseWon, he's an intelligent guy, but I don't rate Stubbs either, well not yet, like someone else said, - Peter Houston has a far better CV, for me though the best manager currently in Scotland is Paul Hartley, 2 promotions, kept Dundee up easily, cruising again, not spent a bean! He talks well, and is very shrewd! He certainly doesn't suffer fools! I don't mean as manager now, but for the future or as part of a management team in the very near future!

4.) 07 Feb 2016 22:12:15
And done all that in under two years 😉.

5.) 07 Feb 2016 23:04:54
Much like what Ronnies done at Celtic.

6.) 07 Feb 2016 23:27:39
Well you've got to be fair - it's not that Hartley is a Celtic man, I couldn't care less about that, he had a bit about him as a player and done well in a very short space of time like you said, well I think you're talking about him PP. As we all know, life is the greatest university, and Hartley seems quite wide, as we say in Glasgow, I think that's a good thing in management. Peter Houston is the same, he used to really annoy me, and I thought he specifically didn't have any time for Celtic, I've been told he's also a Celtic man, not that it matters (even 1%) I just mean it shows he's a winner because he used to give Lennon dog's abuse! Oh and don't have nightmares, but Robbie Nielson has also done a great job! I'd still prefer a Bielsa or a Prandelli, but would be happy with Hartley as his lieutenant, or one of them because I think managers should bring in their own people, but many managers these days have 2/ 3 assistants!

7.) 07 Feb 2016 23:28:05
My choice if RD goes would be Alex Neil but have the feeling it will be Stubbs.

8.) 08 Feb 2016 11:04:15
Moyes got United out of europe, not into it. He also destroyed every bit of confidence and said "Manutd must try to emulate Manchester City" after 0-3 at Old Trafford. This is the one you want instead of RD? Well the best of luck to you!

9.) 08 Feb 2016 12:57:22
Im a Ronny fan but I am starting to lose patience however Moyes and stubbs are defo not the answer.

10.) 08 Feb 2016 13:30:48
Delphic, I was responding to BigBhoy's appraisal with a joke about the fact he'd been sacked twice in two years.

As for your point re Hartley, I agree. I think that he'd be a great choice (if we were looking at the SPFL) but my point yesterday was that Houston has a great record with Falkirk, and Mcinnes has a really good record with Aberdeen, and then you get into the John Hughes, Alan Stubbs territory. All these managers would be dismissed as cheap/ poor options but some have the advantage of a Celtic connection that will elicit a certain degree of leeway.

If I had to pick from Scotland -- and by Scotland, I mean the top league for obvious reasons -- then I'd say McInnes or Hartley.

11.) 08 Feb 2016 14:03:09
I understand why you all are starting to lose patience but please hang on cause this is excactly how it went for Deila in his last club.
He dud have a couple of down seasons before the team started working.
His "philosophy" if you like, everybody has to do their share of movements and defencive work or it will not work.
Pretty much the same kind of football Klopp wants LFC to play, and after so much changes in the defence i think any manager would have these issues to have to figure out.

12.) 08 Feb 2016 14:52:18
What's the obsession with every player or manager having to be from the top league. Everybody's got to start somewhere, I'm not saying Stubbs is the answer but a lot of top players or managers started in lower leagues than ours.

13.) 08 Feb 2016 15:27:24
I like reading what Norwegian Red has to say because he knows more about RD than any of us. I just think we would benefit from him being able to pick his own coaches and players. It frustrates me the way we are run at the moment.

14.) 08 Feb 2016 15:52:19

I don't know if you are referring to my above post?

I don't have an obsession with the top league, but if we are replacing RD for: not being experienced enough etc, or for coming from the Norwegian leagues etc, or the job being too big for him, (some of the reasons I've heard mentioned) then getting an unproven manager from the lower leagues of Scotland ain't going to answer any of those questions/ concerns.

As well as which, I hear Celtic fans downplaying what Mark Warbuton is doing at Rangers (because it's the Championship) whilst simultaneously bigging up the work Alan Stubbs has done at Hibs and putting him forth as a Celtic manager. It's hypocritical nonsense.

And before anyone compares Stubbs budget with that of Warbuton's, I've already said Peter Houston has outdone them both in relative terms, with a young team playing attacking football.

Finally, have we forgotten what happened when Alan 'Manager of the Year' stepped into the top league?

And for the record, I agree with NorwegianRed. I don't think RD should be sacked.

15.) 08 Feb 2016 17:12:21
Poet at what stage do you draw a line under the Ronnie experiment? Is it if he fails to get into CL again? Is it if we fail to win the league? Where is the lone because we are getting pretty close to it. Or is it we stick with him no matter. If Rangers come up and beat us in the Scottish cup? What is it because the football is poor so why is he still supported?

16.) 08 Feb 2016 17:04:42
Wasn't aimed at anyone in particular, loads of folk on here dismiss players that haven't played in top leagues. All am saying is some players start at the bottom and work hard to get to the top. Just because u don't get cherry picked at youth level doesn't mean u can't get to the top.

17.) 08 Feb 2016 18:10:26
Aindoh, I understand that u often have pointed out R D as not good enough to manage Celtic. You now seem to be advocating David Moyes for Celtic job as u think he is as good as R. D . Surely most people would want, deserve better .
That won't be easy as no doubt the new man will have to continue R D's policy concentrating on very young players, as there isn't and won't be the money to buy the finished article . Supporters will have to be patient with eithe R D or his replacement.

18.) 08 Feb 2016 22:04:15
Johnnymac - if he doesn't win the league, he has to go because his position would become untenable. If he wins the league (with the Scottish Cup) I think that's a successful season.

Not what I'm saying at all I believe we should keep all our best assets however players like larsson who are that loyal don't really exist anymore wanyama publicly saw us as a stepping stone as did vvd so if we are moving players on we should aim to make profit yes.

Haha if this kid does half of what big vic did I'd be happy, but to say it's not all about money is absurd how much money did we make off wanyama, something like 8 mill profit and he basically won us that game against barca. Money is what makes the world go round and especially the football world.

Is it? Why is an 18 month loan deal any better in the long term he's still not our player and unless he single handedly gets us into the champions league next year he will never make us any money.

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.
