Well played tonight by the bhoys, really like the movement and touch of Weah.

Hopefully KT not too far away from a return, wil make a huge difference in the run in.

All the way bhoys!

If seems clear BR hasn't had much to do with the new winger coming in. Saw a comment which said he doesn't know much about him and we have millions of wingers and he will be going straight out on loan. Seems very strange comment to make.

2.) 24 Jan 2019 05:09:56
Where did you read that Ter?

3.) 24 Jan 2019 06:19:20
Very strange really ter, at a time when we seem reluctant to pay for a weak area in right back we manage to find 2 million for another winger that the manager knows nothing about. Who has made this signing? Why are they doing it behind his back? Being slightly pessimistic I’m thinking this could be Brendan’s last season, there seems to be still a bit of disharmony there. I really hope I’m wrong because I can’t see us getting in the same calibre of manager when he does eventually go, and even as a lot of people say his signings haven’t been a success it’s never a good sign when the club starts signing players behind the managers back.

4.) 24 Jan 2019 06:41:59
At big clubs the managers don't pick the players, he also said same about Arzani
If we have a chance to get a great young player that could make the club millions why not.

5.) 24 Jan 2019 07:13:34
We are not reluctant to pay for a right back. We have approached and been rebuffed for a few this window.

6.) 24 Jan 2019 08:30:50
We rebuffed ourselves kev over prices.

Also hate to be that guy but I've told you all along on here the manager doesn't make the signings.

Since way before Rodgers.

So many people you see absolutely slaughtering Rodgers for his signings. Even slaughter congerton and before that john park.

When these guys work with 2 hands tied behind their back.

Even if you watch si ferry interview with paddy McCourt. It was Desmond who signed him and Strachan didn't know who he was.

Now we operate by having links with clubs and agents and use their pool of players. Mark lawwell at Man city. Dudu dahan the old agent.

So think before you say it's all Rodgers fault he doesn't get trusted with money.

7.) 24 Jan 2019 08:37:35
I remember paddy mcourt saying when he walked into the training ground strachan never had a clue who he was think this has been happening for years.

8.) 24 Jan 2019 09:40:01
Was Rogers who picked Hendry after praising him for weeks
It was Rogers that's said no to Fabian Schar and wanted compper instead.

9.) 24 Jan 2019 10:20:18
There is no way Rodgers picked Compper over Schar. Absolute lie Kev.

10.) 24 Jan 2019 12:00:41
Kev83 sorry mate but you are being taken in by the spin doctors at C. P the reason we have no new R. B is purely down to the asking price, and as for commper over Schar down to Rodgers nonsense again down to money lawwell and Desmond have put in an artificial ceiling of 2 mill tops for new signings, don't you find it lust a little strange that the cheque for lawwells bonus is more than paid out for. All the new signings so far, a lot more transparency needed around just who is signing these player it's very obvious it's not BR and with congleton given a back seat who and why are we filling the squad with loans and bench warmers when come the summer we stand to lose half the team, on a positive note team plated very well last night enjoyed the game.

11.) 24 Jan 2019 12:11:51
No it's not it's been well known for a while.

12.) 24 Jan 2019 14:05:46
Hi Jonbhoy. I saw it on reports which quote BR as saying it about the winger. It doesn't come across as happy about it.

13.) 24 Jan 2019 14:09:50
2 million ceiling on signings?
So we didn't smash our transfer record in the last transfer window?
Bloody hell I must have dreamt that.

14.) 24 Jan 2019 15:16:58
But a thought Rodgers didn't pick the players so is he to blame for the mince ones and gets no credit for the good ones.

15.) 24 Jan 2019 15:41:23
He gets a say in signings mally. It's like a committee as far as I am have heard.
Just have to look at Scott Sinclair to see he gets a say.

16.) 24 Jan 2019 16:16:12
Agree kev he does but he seems to take the rap on here for the duds but not the hits.

17.) 24 Jan 2019 16:36:36
Actually kev that's not true. We were in contact with Scott Sinclair when deila was the manager so yer wrong again.

Sinclair knocked us back for Villa and having Rodgers helps attract guys like him

But Sinclair was sought after by us before Rodgers.

18.) 24 Jan 2019 16:46:08
Don't think that's quite right mally.
Most people rave about how he's improved the team that was here and quite a few believe Sinclair was an excellent signing.

19.) 24 Jan 2019 19:32:48
We might have wanted him but he was one of the first Rogers asked for and we only got him because of Rogers. So he was most certainly a Rogers signing.
He has always been a major favourite of Rogers from his time at Chelsea.
Bought him for Swansea. Enquired about signing him for Liverpool and then signed him for us.

20.) 24 Jan 2019 19:42:14
Maybe it was tongue in cheek, maybes ayes maybes no, he's here for 10 in a row.

21.) 24 Jan 2019 20:38:33
Nonsense Kev83, Brendan Rodgers publically stated he wanted Schar.

22.) 24 Jan 2019 23:03:18
Impression I get is that Kev is in a bit of denial about how much the board has total control these days.

It can work in some ways but imo our board seen too arrogant to make big decisions when needed.

Far too safe.

To blame Rodgers for signings is a bit mental and tbh shows a lack of knowledge on modern football.

The manager nowadays is becoming just a head coach for many teams.

Clubs are relying more on structure than one mans decisions. On paper that sounds sensible but it can also be a disaster.



12 Jan 2019 22:52:25
Looks like we have missed the boat with Fran Sol, off to Dynamo Kiev for only 3 million.

{Ed007's Note - We didn't miss out on him, we signed Bayo instead.}

1.) 13 Jan 2019 00:02:50
Interesting as Dynamo Kiev were apparently in for Bayo. Maybe Sol was their back up option.

2.) 13 Jan 2019 10:20:49
Should have signed them both ;)

3.) 13 Jan 2019 12:28:54
How can we miss out on a player we didn't want to sign?

4.) 13 Jan 2019 13:57:08
That only usually happens when Sevco sign a player Kev.

With the talk about us trying to sign the big French CH, do you bhoys reckon we should be trying to get Benko signed instead?

1.) 13 Jun 2019 10:07:49
We need 2.

2.) 13 Jun 2019 11:08:16
Well we ain't going to be paying £25 m for 2 CBs, what's the chances of Benkovic coming back on loan?

3.) 13 Jun 2019 13:50:06
Swap rogic for benko.



25 May 2019 17:00:14
Yaaaaaaaa dancer!

What an unbelievable achievement, the treble, treble.

Enjoy the party tonight bhoys, 1.30am here.

God bless.



12 May 2019 13:59:46
We were crap today, plain and simple, but that was their cup final, fluke first goal got them on their way.

How many times did they play the ball out from the back? Punt, punt, punt. Kids here are not taught or encouraged to lump it up the park.

Rogic is slower than 6 months in the Bar L man!

We need a serious clean out and serious investment.

Now to try and sleep, fat fricking chance!



05 May 2019 04:06:02
Still smiling from last nights win, i thought Lustig in particular had a great game, hopefully his hammy is ok.

Just scrolled through the peoples page, their hatred to not only us but Aberdeen and Kilmarnock is disgusting.

It's 2019 but some people seem to still have their heads buried in the 1600s, they say we have no class, i take it they have all been going to night school for lessons sinve i've been gone!

I think Stevie G will make them do guard of honour for us.

Oh and 31 million for Morelos, airfield and trav? Away an dinnae talk.



21 Apr 2019 14:26:52
As much as the Hibs keeper had a great game, we were very poor.

This team needs serious investmemt and Lennon isn't the answer.

1.) 21 Apr 2019 14:45:25
Downunderbhoy . If Lennon isn't the answer who is?
Investment doesn't necessary buy results and there is not necessary no link between proper investment and manager . Two different things.

2.) 21 Apr 2019 15:00:25
Omc he's sitting today with his head in his hands with no clue how to change what was happening.

3.) 21 Apr 2019 15:06:36
Old man Chris what utter nonsense! We invested in bringing Rodgers in on 2.5 mill a year and he delivered an invincible treble! Push the boat out for a manager with a bit about him instead of the cheap option lennon and we’ll reap the benefits! If Lennon has a came in and set the heather on fire he mite have had a good case for the job, but he’s been nowhere near that!3 nothing each draws in 7 league games with scraped victories against a poor hearts and Dundee ain’t good enough by a long way!

4.) 21 Apr 2019 15:23:10
So positive changes during game putting Sinclair in who is pele now and weah never mind rogic and it's lennys fault we didn't win. gie me piece.

5.) 21 Apr 2019 17:44:25
Mally the 1st change happened after after 62 minutes. Same as practically every time with Lennon.
We could see after 20 minutes it wasn't working and needed changed.
Rogic got under 30 minutes when he should have been on in 1st half from ntcham
Sinclair got under 20 minutes and is one of our top scorers
Weah got 6 minutes. 6 fecking minutes.
Two of them should have started never mind get under 30 minutes.

6.) 21 Apr 2019 19:47:57
Our first shot on goal was 26 mins in. that is all. If this was how we were playing at start of season we would be bang in trouble.

7.) 21 Apr 2019 23:44:00
OMC, why do we need investment? Did you count the amount of crosses that went into the box by us? It was well over 30, we need a striker that can convert some of those.

Ntcham should have been taken off in first half, the boy just wasn't there.

As for new manager, i truly don't know, but Lennon isn't the one for me.

The big French lad looks very athletic to me, rather have Benko if I was honest but like everyone is saying his value will be out of our structure.

Right back for me, would be my top priority and keeping Teirney.

Ed, so you believe everything you read in the papers?

I know nothing about the incident you refer to but I've seen a lot in my time, working in the slums of both hemispheres.

Unless you witness an event with your own eyes, i wouldn't go hanging on what you read as fact.

{Ed007's Note - If the story is false why did he apologise, why did he try through the courts and stop the story coming out instead of suing the abundance of newspapers that carried the story. He only managed to hold onto the Bolton job with the skin of his teeth after they held an investigation where he admitted it.
I can't believe there's Celtic supporters making excuses for someone threatening a woman, I mean the Celtic family are usually against things like the abuse of women, strange 😏 I'm sure I've heard plenty of them chastise Gazza over the years and more recently Jon Flanagan for their behaviour towards women.}

I cannot believe the nonsense been spouted on here about the players diets.

Unless you are seriously into sports, you really won't have a clue about sports nutrition.

These guys have a punishing amount of games in a season, trust me, their bodies wouldn't keep up or recover if their bodies were been deprivied of the proper nutrition.

Full fat coke and crisps, get a grip!
