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.

Totally left-field post here:

Director of Football role for Ranieri at Parkhead?

He may be ambitious to manage again or maybe not. Iconic status in sync. with our own ethos as outsiders, marginalians, &c. Fabulous ambassador for the whole game. A man, moreover, who can really understand the epoch-making success of the Lisbon Lions. Would Brendan have the maturity to work with someone of this stature: damn straight.

Why would we make ANY changes to the structure of the management team of even the club right now?
Everything about the club is pulling in the one direction and is being very successful
What is the fascination with fixing thing that ain't broke?


2.) 26 Feb 2017 08:31:24
I can't see what he would bring to the team that BR can't. What would he be in charge of? At the moment BR pretty much runs the show with very little influence.


3.) 26 Feb 2017 08:38:03
Why create a situation when everything seems to be going fine. Is Brendan mature enough? , when has he not been. We don't need Ranieri, and to start making jobs up because you feel sorry for him is not good business. Undermining Brendan, that's basically your idea. poor.


4.) 26 Feb 2017 08:41:52
Ranieri did an unbelievable job last season. Really nice guy and the board should have offered him a move upstairs. This guy has brought honour and prestige not to mention a shitpot of cash through merchandise sales, League win cas and current Champions League cash.
Would he add anything to Celtic? I doubt it. Why change (again) what is actually working. Does BR need a Director above him? . I think not.


5.) 26 Feb 2017 09:34:03
No chance brendan doesn't need help he's doing just fine can u imagine fergie wenger or big jock answering to a dof its a load of bo##ocks imo HH.


6.) 26 Feb 2017 10:19:00
Prob best leave him to join the other side as we did with Wilson, allegedly.


7.) 26 Feb 2017 11:30:11
No thanks. What Leicester did to that man is disgusting. He should have been made an abassador for the club but I still wouldn''t like to see him come to us. Our set up is working absolutely spot on just now. leave it be.


8.) 26 Feb 2017 11:50:53
To be honest, if Brendan was to leave us I wouldn't want Ranieri as his replacement.
I know that there is a huge outcry about his sacking but if you look at his career overall I don't think he's been very good.
The season previous to last, Leicester won 7 of their last 9 matches under Nigel Pearson, everything was already in place before Ranieri took over, players, style of play etc. Once teams had worked them out Ranieri couldn't alter the style of play and he made poor buys.
I'm not disputing he is a nice guy, but in my view when you take the emotion out of it the work was already done before he took over and when things started to go wrong he couldn't cope.
At Celtic we have a set up that is working well, I wouldn't want emotion and sympathy for another manager to start to undo al the good work that has been started.

{Ed001's Note - Ranieri was not in charge of recruitment, they lost their head of recruitment to Everton in the summer, which was a big part of the problem as it left their plans in a mess.}


9.) 26 Feb 2017 12:31:09
Why are we even talking about this? Let's just enjoy what we have and be thankful for the duration.


10.) 26 Feb 2017 16:19:37
What's the old phrase, if it ain't broke don't fix it! Brendan doesn't need someone like ranieri coming in.


11.) 26 Feb 2017 22:15:56
Hahaha. Thanks for all the visceral responses. I agree on the whole with all of this. I suppose I was thinking more symbolically, as a big F. U. to the cynical, commercial forces in the game (that in part we benefit from) .

It seems he does want to get stuck back in to management, and I hope he does. His stock must be high. Can't imagine anyone wanting to jump in there after him tho.

My thoughts on the Dembele rumour are pending Ed007's approval, but it is worth considering that we'd all ove us consider a 10-12M deal a marquee signing.

Retaining Moussa is surely thrice that!

Simples.

{Ed007's Note - Wasn't that marquee signing meant to be Bojan? (rofl}

Where do all you Bhoys in Londres watch the games? Just moved here last week . . . . f€cked if I'm staying in for this one :D Cheers in advance.

Paddy in for me for certs. Say what you like abott Forrest kicking on - its super to see, but the City Bhoy has bags more in his locker. Dembelle needs the chance too, so not sweating on Griff: I'd start 'em both, win the game in twenty or so then just take the piss.

a hoopy weekend to you all!

I found a CSC near Euston Station a few years ago when we won the league against Killie. If you Google CSCs you'll find a few down there mate.


2.) 09 Sep 2016 09:52:12
The Cock Tavern 23 Phoenix Road Euston. A really good place to watch Celtic. Be aware they don't tolerate any sectarian or racist stuff. Not suggesting in any way you are mate. Just good and loud support of Celtic. HH.


3.) 09 Sep 2016 20:10:37
Cheers folks!

Now that Toure is registered, anyone know whether the wild-card slot is still available?

cavalcanti

1.) 27 Jul 2016 18:24:33
Toure was registered as the wildcard.

Lots of sense here, on both sides. I think the prevailing notion is that if he wants to go we shouldn't stand in his way so long as that 40M goes the other way. I don't see anything to suggest that he wants to go (credit to him and his manager either way) .

To hold on to a player valued at that kind of money would be a statement of intent, tho, wouldn't it? Notice to Europe's elite that we're coming out next year with the intent to go toe-to-toe.

Is that sort of symbolism worth 40M over the next 5 seasons or so? You better believe it. 'Optics' is the fashionable word these days: but it means that the best young talent and the established pros with thing differently about Celtic Football Club going on. Keep him I say - even if it is no more than a status symbol (and he's so much more than that) .

Some old colleague tried to tell me 'back door man' was about chicken. I dunno.

Definitely thought Kouassi looked out of place on a day where there was few stand-out performances. Time enough tho.

A bit harsh on Lustig, but he is a veteran in our flanks and I'd maybe like to see him moving into the centre of defence (where we have so many good options lol) . With Roberts and Forrest I think we're decent on the right, but without either it shows.
