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.

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.

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


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

Someone on here mentioned breaking tha bank for Joe Allen. I suppose that's out of the question now given his amazing contribution over 3 games in wales's historic campaign.

But doesn't he look like a Celtic Bhoy?


1.) 21 Jun 2016 07:45:14
People on here scoffed at Joe Allen saying he's not the answer and not the callibre or player we should be looking at. He was before and still is an excellent player. I find it hilarious how deluded people that post on his page are and how little they know about the real world. Joe Allen would be the best midfield player at Celtic if he was to sign. I thought to myself before this tournament that it would be very far fetched to be considering him but now it just made it nigh on impossible. Good player in my opinion- plays the game well and works hard and is in good shape probably worth 10m in premiership modern day values therefor totally out of our league unless he really really really loves big Brenda.

{Ed001's Note - is the Celtic midfield really that bad? If Joe Allen will be the best you have, then it must be truly awful. And yes I have watched him many times running round offering nothing in the Liverpool midfield. He only plays well when given time and space to operate, when any professional should be able to do so. He gets overrun constantly in the English Prem, has no incision to his passing, can't tackle, can't shoot, has no positional sense but he does have a good beard.}

2.) 21 Jun 2016 08:00:15
Is brown better? No
Bitton? Maybe when he can be arsed
Johanson? Not on last seasons form

So yes they must be terrible because I'd rather have him than them. Although I like Johanson his recent form is rubbish. Bearing in mind just what I think I'm sure other people's views may vary. Need to add that on this site incase people think I'm talking factually. Just my opinion.

{Ed001's Note - I have to admit I have not seen you play much in recent years, just can't believe you have fallen so far that Allen would improve you! One of the least useful players I have ever seen. He just does nothing but run around hither and thither, without actually effecting the game at all.}

3.) 21 Jun 2016 08:08:26
Is that what he did in the three Wales games that the original poster was talking about? Maybe it was a Liverpool thing and not a Joe Allen thing. I mean the much discussed Liverpool transfer comitee signed him for a few quid I think - not sure what he cost - so someone somewhere must have thought he would be a good addition even if he's not the highest callibre flair player that people want. He kinds of reminds me of what Ledley did for Celtic. Works hard off he ball and does a lot of the ugly stuff that not a lot of midfielders like doing but it's a very effective part of the team as Celtic discovered when they lost ledley.

{Ed001's Note - Rodgers signed him. Nothing to do with the committee, he was totally and completely a Rodgers call. Hence the Celtic links. Allen does none of the ugly things, he is bullied off the ball and opposing midfields bypass him like he is not there. If he did the ugly things I would love him, as they are my type of midfielders. I love players who can get stuck in and break up play, or have the intelligence to read the game to position themselves to close off passing lanes or runs. Unfortunately Allen does not do that at all, or he would be a much better player.}

4.) 21 Jun 2016 09:23:07
being deluded and seeing the real world different . because we don't agree with you . have your favourite s. and opinions but don't attack others for theirs . imo Allen is an average to ok player (not some midfield maestro who has dominated the epl ) and the 3 Welsh games haven't my mind.

5.) 21 Jun 2016 11:05:35
If SJ can pick up some form again we don't need JA at all.

6.) 21 Jun 2016 11:22:35
Joe Allen is awful.

7.) 21 Jun 2016 11:50:04
While only 1 Celtic player is at the Euros, Joe Allen has been the best player on the pitch in 2 of the 3 games he's played. And we are actually saying he wouldn't improve our team? Wow.

8.) 21 Jun 2016 12:31:29
I really can't see what all the fuss is about Joe Allen?
Sure he runs about like a blue arsed fly, but he chases shadows most of the time and his touch is very heavy.
I accept he does look busy and committed, but he loses possession and is knocked off the ball far too easily and we already have a couple at the club who are just like that as well as a few who are a lot better IMO.

{Ed007's Note - It looks like people have seen him having a couple of good games for Wales and decided he's a good player, we call it MOTD Fever.}

9.) 21 Jun 2016 13:55:56
I must add I've not seen him much at Liverpool but him or Ledley would still have a place in starting 11.

10.) 21 Jun 2016 16:06:34
Lm 67 we are watching different games/ player mate he was OK at best 1st game done nothing in 2nd and ok in 3rd . his work rate without actually doing anything is brilliant right enough. he also puts the ball sideways more than peter grant. and cavalcanti I would also take ledley back.

11.) 21 Jun 2016 18:23:12
Michael McGovern has had a good few games. Perhaps Accies would accept Gordon plus a couple million.

12.) 21 Jun 2016 18:34:31
For me Johansen offers more than Allen so keep him n buy a top forward and a winger that can score as well as assist, unlike Forrest who barely did either when he could be bothered. A strong centre half and right back added to that would do nicely. Hail hail.

13.) 22 Jun 2016 00:26:34
I have watched Wales three matches in the Euroes . The first match so -so. Wales were poor against England, they never really got into match .
Last night even though Russia were very poor, I thought Wales were exceptional and never stopped going forward 3 nil going on 6/ 7 . The best performance I have seen from a wee Country for ages . Joe Allen Bale and Ramsey were outstanding and also a very good back four .
iWork's have been proud if Joe Allan was a Celtic player last night .
Now I haven't watched him often so I am not judging him on his over- all ability but he was v good.

Just reviving from emigrating back to the UK from OK . . . and rebooting a new computer after a hard drive meltdown.

Is it true Emilio's off ski? Thought the lad deserved a testimonial myself. Sure, Liam has come on hard this season, but he gave his career to CFC and we might have kept him around in several capacities. I guess the lure of the $ and perhaps some protection from returning in the end to Honduras will be the best thing.

Viva Emilio!


1.) 16 May 2016 13:52:30
Did he not issue a come-get-me plea to Sir Alex after his first season?

2.) 16 May 2016 17:31:40
Kevbhoy - I think there was a lot of speculation - but who knows. Utd really likely to go for him after a fine season and (if I recall) a good world cup? Probably not, but stranger things have happened. We've lost lots of talent to England after a year or 18 months; fact is, Emilio was gallus when he was on form and in Ronnie's first season remained our best attacking option for the first third of the season (well, the last bit isn't a fact, but you'll see where I'm going.



29 Feb 2016 04:55:09
Anyone else feel it would be daft to let Emilio leave in the summer? I've always been a fan, and there have been times when he's been among our most potent threats going forward. As someone said lately, he and stokes on the left seemed genuinely to click. Its great LT is getting a run, but I think Emilio has been a great servant and hoped he'd make a testimonial.


1.) 29 Feb 2016 07:35:56
It is clear that izzy has dropped down the pecking order but he is great back up. For that reason I would like to keep him. However there are a number of factors to consider:

1. Can we get a good transfer fee.
2. Is he on big wages?
3. Does he want to leave?
4. Is he happy to sit on the bench?

2.) 29 Feb 2016 09:32:14
Defensively he has let us down a few times, but as an attacking player he is one of the best wide players at the club.
He has close control and skill and it is another sign of RD's poor judgement that he is not either being rotated with KT to save the youngster from burn-out or use Izzy on the left instead of Armstrong.
I realise the manager wants to build his own team, but he has to use the best players available, who can perform in their best positions.

3.) 29 Feb 2016 11:42:52
I think in Europe that would probably be ideal for Izzy and LT both in the team, If LT is forward Izzy could cover it would work out better defensively and attacking as I think both can put in a better ball than Armstrong on the wing.

4.) 29 Feb 2016 13:08:27
FFS JJ2. Poor judgement? KT is our PLAYER OF THE SEASON.

5.) 29 Feb 2016 14:56:38
Never said he wasn't Jim Tim - and to be perfectly honest he along with Griffiths have been the only highlight of a very poor season.
However, when we have pushed young players too much and relied on them to carry the team/ defence there is a risk of burn out as this is his first season and we need to look after his long term future.
Izzaguire can give that 'protection' and cover as-and-when.
McGregor was an automatic start last season and look what happened to him and the same happened with NL and Forrest.

6.) 29 Feb 2016 18:27:25
We haven't pushed him too much at all. But as soon as he gets a knock or niggle it's going to be RD's fault anyway. So what has he got to lose? Of the three of us RD knows best how to manage young players. He's the ones with the KPIs and stuff like that, or better yet just ask the lad if he is feeling tired. But at 18 playing a game of football every week shouldn't be too much to ask of his body. The only thing to worry about playing young players too much is losing the incentive to work hard and learn. Forrest doesn't work hard, KT does. And he seems pretty grounded anyway, I mean, he still sits with the youth players and has spoken of how he treats every opportunity he gets.

7.) 29 Feb 2016 18:54:11
I hope Izzy stays remember our best win in R D 's reign was in Izzy's last game for us when we beat Hamilton 8 -1 . I have nothing but the highest praise for K T, however I would like Izzy to get some game time .

Hoopy, Izzy bleeds celtic - it would take something out of the ordinary for him to go I reckon.

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

Me too. Was gagging when he didn't come in for forrest and O'Connell for Janko at half time. Show the bhoy the red carpet. He'll steer us right.

I think against the German boys we need to go with the two, Griff in the more advanced role as Dembele has more to his game. Admitedly, we lost the last tie in the midfield, but we got to score more than them this time and they look fine together. It might cause them to alter their middle too and we'd always have the fast break and the long ball.
