Shocked we're turning on the manager. Brendan Rogers is the best and only man for the job. He's been let down in even the modest aspirations he demonstrated in the summer. I worry that his remark about it taking a season to remedy might play as wishful thinking. We need to match his talent and ambition. And we need to be ruthless with the squad and fantastical with the speculation.


1.) 24 Sep 2018 06:08:26
We're blaming the manager because it's 100% his fault. He needs to turn it around very quickly. Does anyone on here enjoy watching us play? It's pathetic the way we pass it around and makes it incredibly easy for our opponents.

2.) 24 Sep 2018 09:50:12
With the exception of 3 players, brendan's signings have been poor. I painted this picture a few weeks ago. The win over rangers papered the cracks. We stuggled against st mirren, barely beat hamilton and if it wasn't for the killie defenders mistake we wouldn't have scored. HH☘.

3.) 24 Sep 2018 13:17:24
Everyone at the club is culpible in this mess.
*The board have let us all down with the poor transfer window.
*Rodgers tactics aren’t working, and he doesn’t seem keen to change them.
*The players seem to have downed tools for some reason.
And let’s be honest, Celtic Park is a morgue these days. There’s no noise (and I include myself in that) , so the fear factor isn’t there anymore. The fans need to get behind the players on the pitch, and scare the opposition players.
The boyata banner didn’t help, but to his credit he’s kicked in instead of going in a huff.

4.) 24 Sep 2018 15:41:21
CC. he needs to look at this slow build up with the monotonous side to side . side to back then repeat ad nauseam for 90 mins style of play. wanting rid of him just now is ridiculous. but don't agree he is the only man for the job . the whole recruitment set up is shocking and needs overhauled and improved immediately .

Funniest rumour I've heard in a while. The Guardian are reporting KT is off . . . to Bournemouth

:D :D :D.


1.) 30 Apr 2018 23:22:27
Aye and I'm signing for Real Madrid. Clueless journalists 🤣.

2.) 01 May 2018 11:46:07
I live near Bournemouth and you would not believe the arrogance of English supporters. When you ask why KT would leave a great club like Celtic they reply but it is the Premier League as if it is the Holy Grail. PL is not the Greatest league nor does it have the best players in the world. No matter what some people might say. It is no different than it was 50 years ago it still relies upon foreign players to make up the squads which are larger than in Scotland which means more competition. Yes it pays better but money is not everything pride happiness and success can be just as important.

3.) 01 May 2018 14:28:31
A few years ago it was the best league in the world

then when Leicester won - it was the most competitive league in the world

now man city are 1000 point clear. its the most English league in the world?

its all hype and if you are daft enough to believe it.

4.) 01 May 2018 14:56:40
KT to Boremouth? I’m gutted, I was hoping he would join me at Barca. That’s it, I’m knocking them

Great to see so many positive posts and responses right now. Anyone think we can get a result on Thursday? If so, how do we go about it? Keep the faith in the new starters? Trust in our newly competent back line and absorb what they have? I can see a result but damned if I'd like to set the team up for this one.


1.) 04 Nov 2018 00:06:53
I’d stick with the same lineup and game plan. European ties are always different at home than they are away and with a full house getting right behind the team, we have a chance against most teams. I think that’s BR’s philosophy and whilst we’ve taken a few hidings along the way, we’ll get better at dealing with this level of opposition. We had a huge amount of possession against Zenit last year at CP and they’re no mugs.

2.) 04 Nov 2018 07:22:21
Everytime Leipzig go through on goal. Blind them with the disco light's.

3.) 04 Nov 2018 08:22:12
Tbh I would fancy us against anyone at Parkhead👍.

4.) 04 Nov 2018 09:06:31
If the team can keep there head and cut out the silly mistakes then I would be confident that the team from weekend can get a result.

5.) 04 Nov 2018 11:19:21
Think he'll put ntcham in for Christie and that's no slite in the boy but we'll need natural midfield players.

6.) 04 Nov 2018 11:23:34
Will be interesting to see how Benkovic plays in Europe against a good footballing team.

7.) 04 Nov 2018 08:35:22
Good to see the positive posts must save Ed a fortune on anti depressants.

{Ed007's Note - And on my anger management therapy!



04 Oct 2018 21:44:11
Must've watched a different game from ya'll. The criticism of Lustig and Hendry is out of control. Both played well enough over the 90.

With an out-ball we would have conquered them tonite.


1.) 04 Oct 2018 22:22:41
I thought overall we defended well. My issue is Craig Gordon. He gives the defence absolutely no confidence and needs replaced with a top keeper. Love lustig but we're crying out for a new right back. What a difference these 2 things would make to us.

2.) 04 Oct 2018 22:33:28
Lustig was rotten and hendry did as well as he could. Time to play Gamboa more often.

3.) 05 Oct 2018 00:05:05
Lustig was shocking for the equaliser, he was more focused on not conceding a penalty when he should've put his body on the line to stop the ball. As a team tho in the second half we weren't at the races, infact it was before that we started gifting possession.

4.) 05 Oct 2018 11:58:08
Stephboy2 you're right mate, that's 3 goals conceded from lusting square onto the guy at the by line in Europe this year, not good enough. Time to hang the boots up or move on .



25 Sep 2018 22:41:06
Passion and ambition have one thing in common: they require sustenance. We got a great guy in to run our team, and failed to keep him sweet. You all know what comes next.


1.) 25 Sep 2018 23:17:59
Well I'm hoping u tell me what sustenance means.

2.) 26 Sep 2018 00:05:02
It's not all bad lads we're only 1 point behind the greatest team Scottish football has seen ;)

3.) 26 Sep 2018 02:04:41
when u sell your best striker with an hour to go and don’t replace then the board deserves everything it gets. much will we spend in january or will we sell? any players we could sell? I’m sure we’ll find somebody to sell. we will make a profit in January aswell. business module. feck the fans who cares about us?

Bitton still playing? how long till we are told he is training brilliant and deserves to start again? Adam Virgo still play football? we’ll done Celtic. Don McLean song American pie. the day the music died cheers Celtic superb.

4.) 26 Sep 2018 04:55:39
We have definitely stagnated, and rangers have improved (not hard after last season) . At the last minute we lost a wantaway striker. perhaps br thought he would be here all year? . Our start has been abysmal and the transfer window is over. However we still beat them. As soon as they won and we lost the likes of boyd et al are crying crisis lol. let's see what the next two weeks bring. i watched the killie game over here and didn't think the players weren't trying. just thought some of them switched off. The last thing we need is us to become as self-entitled as others. the chase is on;)

5.) 26 Sep 2018 08:41:25
I watched the hibs game last night, what a good attacking display unlucky not to win by a fair margin I felt only if they took their chances it could of been 4-5 goals, it took no more than 5 seconds to get it from ambrose in defence to Boyle in the final 3rd they did that all night great to watch and looked like celtic under Lennon I wish we would return too the attack attack attack instead of this slow pass pass keep the ball in our defence game that's not how champions should play and not how the mighty celts should play.

6.) 26 Sep 2018 11:59:02
Chrisbhoy7 I watched the Hibs game and you are correct regarding the chances Hibs created, Hibs didn’t have a wall in front of them as we have in all our games with teams refusing to cross the halfway line. You can be sure Aberdeen won’t set up on Saturday the same as they did last night they will sit in as the others do. oldkilly.

7.) 26 Sep 2018 20:54:02
I know what your saying Killy very true they all sit deeper than they do with other teams athough I did think Aberdeen sat a bit deeper against hibs too they rarely got up the field, I just think the hibs moved it faster and more direct I'm not worried celtic will get the ruthlessness back sooner rather than later I hope.

"However, this particular decision to accept this offer has been taken in order to serve the best interests of the first-team squad, my coaching team and the culture and environment we have created in these last two seasons. "

1. Mouse was upsetting the players
2. He insulted the manager publicly
3. He wasn't training or heeding the advice and instructions of the coaching staff

That's not just an overnite thing. I feel there is more to this story - especially in light of Sutton's remarks in the last window that we were trying to punt him.

But this is obviously unacceptable behaviour. Must be some bad mojo at the club right now.


1.) 31 Aug 2018 23:29:10
Chris Sutton doesn’t have inside knowledge. His comments are just his opinion.



08 Aug 2018 23:01:08
The factionalism and infighting we are currently experiencing about John McGinn has been manufactured by the media. We've been sold it, and we've bought it, and now they tell us its an embarrassment or a shambles. Better still: we tell ourselves. Have some self respect. Some historical awareness. No one is bigger than the club: he is not even in the club. Get over it. We are allowing ourselves to be defined by what the adverse papers say, and describing ourselves in the same way, slavishly.

Not a great result tonite but we have a great team and a great manager. let's just get behind that and trust that they want what we want. Does anyone really doubt it?


1.) 08 Aug 2018 23:18:34
It is embarrassing, nothing to do with what the papers say, we wanted Mcginn FACT not media speculation, the Board waited untill last minute to pay up, it’s embarrassing!
Not because it’s Mcginn, it could be any player and it could be any manager, it won’t change!
Doesn’t change tonight’s result tho and wasn’t going to
Should have won the game but they are decent and that wasn’t going to be any different either.

2.) 08 Aug 2018 23:27:26
whats our great managers problem with gamboa? can some one tell me why lustig starts ahead of him?

3.) 08 Aug 2018 23:30:04
McGinn would not be guaranteed a start every week. So no real issue on the playing front. BR said he was a player he would have liked to sign. There lies the issue. BR wanted him. We could have had him for 2.75mill. We should have gone and got him because BR wanted him.

4.) 08 Aug 2018 23:31:33
Nothing to do with the papers.

Rodgers said from his own mouth it's a player he really wanted. The board failed to deliver that to him by stalling on the deal early on.

Another club came in and took their interest serious and finalised the deal.

So blaming the papers makes no sense.

5.) 08 Aug 2018 23:32:03
Celtic are always a target for the jealous journalists, media malcontents, Sevco Scribes and detractors, but we should never make it easy for them by giving them ammunition.
The whole McGinn saga was a farce and even if fellow supporters reckoned him no better than what we have, it was clear that the club made a bid (s) and appeared very amateurish and dithery.
This is not befitting a club of our size, stature and reputation.

6.) 08 Aug 2018 23:44:32
How anyone can be upset about a player who clearly cannot get in our first team is beyond me.
They line up to have a dig after dig at the board, this is after they have spouted we only want players who can walk into our team.
The players will come believe me, maybe not the ones you want but then again YOU are not the Celtic manager.
As for the CH debate well we have bought them ( Hendry Commper recently) they may not be there yet but we can't keep buying CHs cos you want to.
I would have thought a RB would be more in line with what we need.

7.) 08 Aug 2018 23:45:19
Bore off.

8.) 08 Aug 2018 23:49:07
After the result tonight, will Boyata now go to Fulham?

9.) 08 Aug 2018 23:50:06
We all hope that we will pull another Ntcham out the bag and McGinn becomes an afterthought.

But the fact is it going to cost a lot more than the reported 2.75 mill to do so and I think that is what's sticking in everyone's throat atm after seeing him holding thst Villa jersey today.

10.) 08 Aug 2018 23:57:28
Eloquently put my friend but if we had maybe done business earlier we just might be In a slightly better position.

11.) 09 Aug 2018 00:46:03
Exactly Mally which makes the fact we have been waiting on McGinn for so long (pretty much full window)

Cut the board some slack as it was a guaranteed signing. Especially after Armstrongs departure

Not to mention the fact BR has specifically said he wanted him and was after him in several interviews

Yet we find ourselves in not a great position in the 40 million quid tournament. Over what now looks like a few grand!

12.) 09 Aug 2018 07:41:49
McGinn is not the issue. He is only the latest in a long line of symptoms of the ever present malaise that is seeped into our club regarding pushing on. Or I should say, not pushing on.

The cause of those symptoms however is Pistake Pete. Let’s be clear about that. His ego cost us signing the best young Scottish player outwith our own team, because he believes his hype. He’s the man, nobody out negotiates Pistake. McGinn will be successful and will go on to earn Villa millions, which should have been ours and all for a poxy £750k. All because nobody fecks with Pistake.

In January, having got ourselves into the EL, we go down his well worn cheapskate path, instead of tooling up and bedding in the quality we needed to beat Zenit and qualify for this years CL, we sign two defenders who aren’t good enough and Johnny Hayes! Think about that for ambition. Or lack of.

We win a double treble and Rogers states “we will strengthen, we must. ” Fast forward three months and we are two quality players down and not replaced. We needed new defenders, better defenders. Instead, we fielded a makeshift, inexperienced and simply not up to it defence. Our best two defenders were at the WC, didn’t Pistake know that tourney was on? Didn’t he know we needed to move fast?

We are now facing down the barrel of a £60m hit in lost revenue. We have brought in nobody. The 3rd qualifier and not one additional player is here. Not one.

Rogers frustration at this was conveyed at the press conference, much to the chagrin of all those who buried their heads in the sand and claimed everything was fine, we would sort it, we will get them in for the CL group stages. Well, how is that train of thought working for anybody?

I have said it many times on here. Rangers would never derail us, we would and by we I mean Pistake Pete. His aversion to spending money, investing in quality, ensuring we are tooled up to face the challenge of qualifying and not being humiliated is all encompassing.

Not one player brought in and the ones being mentioned do not fit into the pup we have been sold of real quality. How any future targets will be affected by his incompetence costing us a CL berth is yet to be seen, but don’t get your hopes up money will be spent. Players will now be sold to ensure the bank balance still triggers his bonus. Not spent on what we need.

Rogers must be asking himself are they serious about progressing. I know I am. And I know the answer and Brendan must too, which doesn’t auger well for his long term stay here. His future of securing a good club is dependent upon him being relatively successful in Europe. Not being backed makes that a pipe dream.

Another defensive lapse lost us a goal. How long will it take for him to realise that the type of player we need can't be found in Primark?

The real quality that we need and which Brendan has talked about, is as near to us today as it was after Seville. We baulk when we are ahead. We have done it again. The real tragedy is nobody is surprised. That we find ourselves in the 3rd qualifying round without a single addition, not even replacing the talent we lost, is infuriating, but it is in no way a shock to anyone. We expect it, it’s normal, we have been there, done that and have three sets of drawers bursting with the Tshirts.

I read some blaming the press. That is totally ridiculous and example of diverting the gaze to where the real problem is. Step forward Lawell. He caused Rogers to speak. He fecked up getting McGinn. He failed to deliver a single Rogers target. He caused us to play a makeshift defence worse than our best, but flawed defence, or does anybody really believe there wasn’t a defender or two on the list provided by Rogers.

Today is the last day of the English window, let’s all hold our breath and see what the wait was for. A big factor for us is convincing talent to join us is being in the CL. What now if we crash out? If he doesn’t spend money when we qualify, what hope do we have now that he has scuppered that with his cautious, let’s get the price down, HOW MUCH? Attitude.

But let’s all rejoice that at least his money’s safe, while we all have to settle for here we go again. He should hang his head in shame. He has let every single Celtic fan down. He talks the talk, but when it comes to the walking bit, he sits on his arse and we stall.

Same me the sun shines out of his arse adoration. It doesn’t. It never has and it never will. When we need him most he is awol. And so are the players we needed. Thanks Pistake, enjoy your bonus. You’ve really earned it.

Bloody hell, that's good Ed, cheers! got to love Leigh's attitude, a sort of indulgent skepticism.

Enjoyed the City articles on Ntcham, I don't think they are an exaggeration. I do have some regard for Pogba. He first came to my attention when we played Juve in the CL and looked really awesome. He does look pretty average most times I've seen him in England but I have no lover for utd.

Bendy water? wtf is that? LOL.

Ntcham will misplace his passes; cause he's trying to find his compass and something unusual. That's everything I love about his game. (I do miss the pirouette passes he began with: the unwobbling pivot- a a little, but no-one gets to stand around in a BR team)

Felt sorry for Eboue and Arzani this week. That must have been a spectacle from the sidelines. I fear we have alienated the former, and suspect there's still a player in there.


{Ed007's Note - Have ypu not seen the Leigh Griffiths 'bendy water' video?


And then watch the bendy water guy's videos!!!!!!

If Ntcham was the finished article he wouldn't be a Celtic player, he's here to learn and progress and with him signing a new deal and what he said he feels he's in the right place for that.
I've put up links to articles before comparing the 2 and how City didn't need Pogba etc but would you swap Pogba for Ntcham? Now there's a player that doesn't want to be at his club but that's another story.
Footballing wise though I honestly don't see how anyone who has wathed Pogba regularly at Man Utd could choose him, behind all the hype and profile there is a very average 25-year old player, I've yet to see him take a game by the scruff of the neck for club or country.
Christie's made a bigger impact for us the last few weeks than Pogba has at Utd.}

A thoughtful thread. Must be strange for the man right now. Even recently I could imagine he wouldn't have been contemplating a celtic side without him as the mainstay.

On the one hand, it would be nice to see him enjoy a run in another good side abroad, in a league where the sun shines. There are maybe (slower moving) teams down south that would fancy him. On the other hand, I could easily imagine that playing for a team with whom he is less than utterly synonymous might be anticlimactic.

There'll always be matches we can use his grit and inspiration--but I think Ed is on the money here. I'd like to see him bank a few cheques and return for the climax of 10-in-a-row, in any capacity at all.

James is having an outstanding season by any standards. For a winger he's sure dangerous around the penalty spot (as his second tonite just drove home)
