To put the hat on backwards for a jiffy, why in the world don't City want to keep hold of Paddy Roberts?

If he was a Celtic player-a Celtic winger-and showed the kind of form he did last year, I'd imagine the so-called elite clubs would be all over him. I am besotted, like the rest of you, and wee Kieran. But what are we missing? Let's say he'd be, as some have said, the best Celtic signing in a decade or more: surely that level of player would be more than tempting for the lot we were unlucky to draw with twice in the last 6 months or so.

Ok here goes and I'm ready to be slaughtered , probably starting with the ed but you got to call it as you see it or what's the point. The elite club's would not be queuing up for Roberts because he was not even nearly the biggest influence in the team last year as a matter of fact for a large part of it he could not even get into the team past Forrest and when he did I can only remember a couple of games where he made the difference. Sinclair , rogic, and Armstrong were much more influential and made the difference in a lot more game than Roberts did, so the elite clubs as you call them would surely be much more interested in those three players. Yes he is young, yes he can be very exciting to watch, yes he has potential to be a great but I think the hype is disguising just how good he was last season , now I'm off to put on my tin helmet.


2.) 15 Jul 2017 06:36:37
Forrest isn't as bad as people make out and paddy isn't as good as some people tout him . the difference is paddy is still young and can or should improve he certainly finished the season great but was patchy up until then . why don't city want him probably because they have the top epl club beating the joneses spending affliction . money to burn and no time / desire to develop.


3.) 15 Jul 2017 06:39:39
Quite simply City are a better side. Roberts was great for us, but they can go out and buy the ready made article. It's a wonder why City even bother with all those resources though. Not just Roberts, but generally. They must have a huge global network, they've got a massive complex, the staff to go with it and even a stadium for their youth teams that would put a lot of Scotland's to shame. Yet they continue to go out and buy players rather than bring them through. Iheanacho looked to be the one to break that mould, but apparently they're even after selling him. For us, picking up these well scouted, well trained young players from City, Chelsea et. al is a great way to go about business imo.


4.) 15 Jul 2017 08:50:28
City and Chelsea are very similar with the stockpiling of players. Quite simply they can pick up a Oliver Ntcham for 1 million, send him on loan for a few seasons, pay at most a small proportion of his wage and then make a £3.5 million pound profit on him. De Bruyne, Lukaku, Ake, Atsu, Borini, Salah, Bamford, Unal, Mooy, Poso, Lopes, Rakik etc. all suffered this fate and made both clubs a healthy profit.


5.) 15 Jul 2017 08:55:41
City buy talent and paddy will never get near there team they don't have the ti. e to wait on him. But last season there were quite a few games the wee man turned on his own ifbu think about it. get him signed HH.


6.) 17 Jul 2017 20:47:39
Paddy was developing with us, he has undoubted skill and is nowhere near the finished article. In my opinion his contribution to the team improved drastically towards the end of his time with is. Money in England makes paddy represent a 'marquee' signing for us, but hardly a massive investment for English clubs.
If we sign him (and I hope we do) I would expect him to kick on again, however we need a sustained period in Europe to improve our players. Experience at the top level, pressure and quality opposition is what is needed to progress.
For me paddy has shown he has more than enough about him to be a first pick for us right now (and I included European ties here) and the potential to take his game to another level. Then I think he would move on for the foreign riches at a club not fighting relegation down south.

Reports in the Guardian now that the effigies of Scott Sinclair are being investigated as a hate crime. Its a real shame the lad has to be part of this, but here's hoping there'll be consequences.

One thing I've noticed that marks this season as special is the incredible array of songs to be heard this year at parkhead. I confess I only hear them from afar - and so I don't know what you all are singing about - but is there another team with such a rich body of literature behind it?

Especially digging This Land is Our Land at the moment.

I'd be surprised if there was a club with a bigger repertoire.


2.) 18 May 2017 22:03:17
This is how it feels to be celtic champions again as you know Brendan Rodgers here for 10 in a row.


3.) 18 May 2017 22:32:54
Takes me 6hrs to get up on out bus thank henrik there's more than one song lol.

'Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers says his players only complain when he tries to give them some time off' -- What a marvellous wee dig ahead of the weekend :D.

Can't help but wonder how we'd be fairing against this exciting Monaco team, especially after the frenetic first tie where the slugged it out with City much of the game more or less as we did. Would like to see Dembele, Sinclair, Forrest, Roberts and Rogic see what they could do here. Anyone else think we could hold our own over two legs?

Not watching it mate, but not on Sundays showing. On top of our game we'd give a lot of teams a fright.


2.) 15 Mar 2017 21:34:49
A lot more work, and at least 2 signings required before we could cope in my opinion.


3.) 15 Mar 2017 21:58:32
In the first tie they played so well, with the ball sticking to their feet like glue so much it reminded me of Ronaldhinho and a few Brazilian teams past. I think it is precisely that which we are lacking - and the one-way-then-another ball player in the centre of the park who can also see a pass. Definitely a side we could aspire to compete with on like terms under BR.

Glad the consensus is that Ntcham is the right stuff, and that Benyu looked graceful too (never saw the match) . I'd also like to be hearing about Kouassi after the friendly at the weekend. But sounds like a fair midweek outing.

Now now Ghirls n Bhoys: every game is hard in Europe these days, everybody says.

Except, maybe, for Progrès Niederkorn, who had a fairly easy tie against a team that's never won in Europe.

I'm very much with Aindoh on the matter: short of 40M+ coming in, keeping Moussa should be a no-brainer: yes, its a risk that the investment will ever mature, but that's true with any signing. Meanwhile we have a committed, first rate striker, the envy of many sides in Europe.

If he left we would be forced to put all this talk about our special year in perspective: it can't be all that if we can't hold on to our brightest hope in years through one season.

Besides, a half decent CL run would offset a 20M sale no probs.

Bruccee: I think that was my first Celtic game. Was it also the one with Maggie Thatcher? I got a program signed by Jock Stein that day - no idea what happened to it. Somewhere in my sister's attic. If I recall it wasn't long before he died at Cardiff Arms. Or maybe that 1986? Brilliant summers day that was. may also have been my first time in a pub lol.

Hear you, Campsie. I've kept mum on this one so far as I know something about what the lad is dealing with. But to dive into Glasgow and hope to keep things on the level would probably be a big ask of anyone. We've a great bunch at Parkhead just now, and many have seen their careers take twists and turns, but I think Caulker would be better off with someone like Ronny Deila to guide him during this phase of his recovery. As a footballer, he's got what we need however, so I'd be glad to be proven wrong.

A wee Black Power saying derived from Malcolm X: by any means necessary.

Pat fits the description. Get him signed up.

Sound assessment here. Eboui will be like a new signing if he can keep that up. Benny sparkled at tim (e) s, but for me Olivier Ntcham was the standout: deft, weighted distribution, strong and purposeful.

Biton is so lackadaisical. I can't imagine a team in which he'd look good.
