I saw a rumour that Norwich and a few other clubs are looking to take Patrick Roberts on loan next season and hijack the deal he has with Celtic.
I've no idea what the details are of his loan, but I wondered if this could actually happen?
I'm not a great fan of loan signings, but if this is true, then it just shows what a nonsense a lot of them are.


1.) 03 Jun 2016 13:04:03
It woukd be a hammer blow. Arguably our mist gifted player and has the sort of return a Celtic winger should have. Having a pkayer like that on loan though, we'd only have ourselves to blame.

2.) 03 Jun 2016 15:46:45
Gerryc i wouldn't worry too much. As much as i'm not a PL fan, i'm sure he will have made sure there was no call back option for man city as a 6 month loan would of been pointless for both parties. After the success of developing Denayer it would be in Roberts best interest to stay put.

3.) 03 Jun 2016 17:52:43
Why are some of you guys going on about zlatan it will never happen get a grip of reality it's absolutely nonsense.

4.) 03 Jun 2016 19:17:48
I haven't seen the odds from the bookies, but if it was true that Celtic were second favourites for his signature, then why wouldn't fans want to talk about it.
There's enough nonsense spouted on your own sites for you to worry about without you bothering what is written on ours.

5.) 03 Jun 2016 19:54:50
Gerry what makes u think wullie1967 is one of them? A would've thought 1967 would give u a hint? Maybe am wrong n it's the year he was born but even if it was, what rangers man would put our finest year into his name?

6.) 03 Jun 2016 22:51:25
Well said Stephbhoy and gerryc I'm a real Celtic supporter don't miss a game and I'm not stupid in thinking zlatan comming to Celtic stupid rumours like that are embarrassing.

7.) 04 Jun 2016 09:47:28
why is it embarrassing wullie, the man himself said he would love to play for us, are we not allowed to think that maybe he was considering us?, its a rumours page mate. i found it quite refreshing to see us linked with a class act rather than the usual dross .

8.) 04 Jun 2016 10:14:57
Exactly bhoywonder it's a rumour page it was never going to happen, don't no if you no but people make this stuff up all the time especially on here you could start a rumour on here about Messi comming and it would take off lol
Hail hail.

9.) 04 Jun 2016 10:39:22
Wullie 1967, I apologise to you, I made a mistake in reading your post.

10.) 04 Jun 2016 10:46:00
i get what your saying wullie but i felt this was different as in he's spoke of his admiration for us and his agent saying some will be surprised, in reality were today linked with steven taylor, give me a ibra fantasy than a taylor reality every time pal.

11.) 04 Jun 2016 14:49:32
A think we are all just wanting a name in and hopefully it will happen soon hail hail.

12.) 05 Jun 2016 04:03:11
Wullie1967 we don't want any names in we want a big name in.

The build up to the match had nearly every pundit talking about how easy it was going to be, and how likely it was that we would score 4,5,or even 6.
I think that spurred Sevco on, as because so little was expected from them, they could just get in our faces, knock us about, and be happy in the knowledge that anything under a 3-0 defeat would be seen as some sort of triumph.
Our players on the other hand never really got going, whether this was down to complacency, or they found the expectation hard to handle I'm not really sure.
The positive thing I'll take from the game today is that I don't think Sevco have got any more, that was the best they could do, whilst we probably gave our poorest performance of the season and we still should have won. I'd far rather the players have their off day today when there is nothing really at stake.




06 Mar 2017 11:49:28
I was delighted with the win yesterday, I had a funny Feeling leading up to the game that it might be a bit tougher than it looked on paper and St Mirren were very well organised for the first hour.
I think that looking at the last few matches we are really starting to miss Rogic, although we are still dominating games we seem to be lacking a bit of craft in midfield, it looks to me that we need to have either Roberts or Forrest available as without Rogic they are our best hope for opening up packed defences.
I doubt very much that Roberts will be here next season, so as Rogic is very injury prone, I think it's something that Brendan will have to look closely at in the close season.


1.) 06 Mar 2017 14:32:59
Been saying for weeks we are missing Rogic totally agree can't wait for the wizard of Oz to return.

2.) 06 Mar 2017 17:29:53
Anybody know when he's due back?

3.) 06 Mar 2017 18:28:32
My team for sunday is

I cannot see why LG can't play the 10 role as well as Rogic.
Rogic is quality but clearly not the fittest/ Quickest or hard working the way he should be for this team.
LG has pace got goals (obv) and works hard, I think he could play this role easily and could also go beyond Dembele which Rogic wont.
Considering this sevco team ain't that good their defence is all over the place, just look at the goals in our team.
Thoughts lads.

4.) 06 Mar 2017 20:58:28
Ray that's my team as well griffs got goals and work rate. unless he goes with bitton and changes it if its needed.

5.) 07 Mar 2017 00:23:09
Rayman - I thought not being the quickest, being fit or hard working shouldn't have been a problem to get in the team last year?



02 Mar 2017 15:10:54
I was truly saddened to hear of Tommy's passing, he will always be a legend in my eyes. My earliest memories of football came from seeing a lot of the Lisbon lions from the late sixties onwards, these players were like Gods to me.
With the news last week about Billy McNeill having dementia, the only thing I can do is thank these legends for the pleasure and pride that they have given to us over the years, and realise how lucky we are that it was our club that benefited from their brilliance.


1.) 02 Mar 2017 16:04:30
Couldn't agree more Gerry c 2 wonderful ambassadors for the Celtic family. Rest in peace, big Tam 🍀 🙏🏼.

2.) 02 Mar 2017 16:35:19
Will miss you big tommy thanks for the great moments, through the years. The difference between celtic and other teams we don't abuse our hero's,

3.) 02 Mar 2017 17:43:02
This is not a time for point scoring , it's a time for showing one of our true legends how much we respected him . God bless big tam .



28 Nov 2016 12:03:23
I thought it was a very impressive performance yesterday.
There seems to be a real hunger in the team at the moment, even when we have injuries, the players coming in are really stepping up, it's great to see players enjoying their football and it shows the respect they have for the manager.
To cap it all, I'm sure I heard Derek McInniss say that the better team won.
For him to admit that, shows what a dominant performance the team put in.


1.) 28 Nov 2016 13:58:33
Hunger skill and tactics equals success and we had all yesterday in abundance. No doubt Brendan has the answers even before the questions are posed . Last season so many people argued that neither Brown nor Forrest had any future with Celtic . Yesterday they were doubtless the two best players on the pitch . It is especially rewarding when one of own Forrest plays so well . He started this season in tremendous form, so good that opposing managers started to double mark him to quieten him down . Unbelievably some Celtic fans used these few quiet games, to get on his back but yesterday he put on a performance that he will be delighted to tell his grandchildren skilful running, end product and bravery all present in abundance
Meanwhile Paddy Roberts got a rare enough start and had a reasonably good game and showed promise.

2.) 28 Nov 2016 16:10:23
Biggest transformation is forrest looks a different player under brendan and broonys like a new signing.

3.) 28 Nov 2016 16:57:19
It makes a huge difference when the players want to play for a manager and buy into his enthusiasm and ideas and the difference in several players from last season is there for all to see.
We started the game yesterday full of confidence and determination and Aberdeen on the other hand looked apprehensive and nervous and I think this is because the fear-factor is back in Scotland.
There is also a good understanding developing between the centre backs and they are both growing in stature week by week.
The football we are playing is great to watch, with goals right through the team and BR still wants to improve and push-on.
It's a great time to be associated with Celtic just now.

4.) 28 Nov 2016 17:10:06
Old bhoy I want Forrest or anyone else wearing the hoops to do well, I back n backed broony despite folk saying he was finished. Forrest turned up yesterday after weeks of inconsistency n put in the performance that he needs to do more often, if he did so I would be over the moon as would a lot of other posters who see the holes in his game, I want the best for celtic n if brendan can get james more consistently starring in matches, n by that I mean running with the ball, beating men, being direct n scoring then what a player.
Again to a man we were excellent n out battled n out played the sheep from start to finish. Hail hail.

5.) 28 Nov 2016 19:24:21
Biggest difference this season is that Brendan is the manager and Ronnie isnt.



25 Oct 2016 17:43:45
I read that Aberdeen have been given a 50/ 50 split of the tickets for the league cup final.
I can never see the fairness in one team getting more tickets than the capacity of their ground whereas the other team has to have half their season ticket holders unable to go.
A couple of years ago Aberdeen had 40,000 odd at Celtic park for their final against Inverness, there's probably over 20,000 of them who haven't been to a match since, I don't think that it's right that these people are given priority over supporters who follow their team and put money into the game.
I should be okay for the final, but I feel for fans who support their team week in week out yet have to miss out to so called fans who only seem to appear when there is a cup at stake.


{Ed007's Note - We had 20,165 at the Motherwell game and 15,900 at the Alloa match so we've got our own fair share of fans that only come out for the 'big' games, Gerry.
In the interests of fairness I'd hope that those that attended the earlier rounds are given priority for the final.}

1.) 25 Oct 2016 19:37:06
Gerry I don't have a problem with the sheep getting half the tickets imo they deserve it . They regularly take a very decent support to Edinburgh Glasgow etc every second week. Its teams like St Mirren, Motherwell, St Johnstone etc that don't deserve half the stadium for cup finals.

2.) 25 Oct 2016 19:30:52
I accept that ED, but at least a lot of the supporters who didn't go to the Alloa or Motherwell games still attend matches.
Where I think it's wrong is that a lot of Aberdeen fans who don't go to any matches other than finals seem to have more entitlement to the tickets than fans who actually go to matches.
Two years ago Aberdeen were quite happy to have five or six times as many tickets as Inverness as they had more fans, it just seems wrong to me that when the roles are reversed they don't want to apply the same rules.

{Ed007's Note - I just don't understand why Celtic supporters that weren't at any the previous rounds should get any priority over Aberdeen fans that weren't at any previous rounds? The simple fact is that you never please everyone with ticket allocations, it's a nightmare even trying to do it on a supporter's bus never mind the moaning faced sods - not you of course :-p - in the whole support.
So why not give Aberdeen their allowance and then any they don't sell give as extra to Celtic?}

3.) 25 Oct 2016 20:48:17
They deserve their tickets just the same as us. They worked hard to get their same as us.

4.) 26 Oct 2016 13:12:37
Aberdeen will sell out their allocation, that's the difference.

I'm glad Dembele wasn't subbed in the semi final.

I think first of all a player has to have ability, the fitness side of things come afterwards.
I think a lot of the modern coaches are only interested in how athletic a player is, it doesn't seem to matter to them if they can actually trap a ball correctly or be able to make a pass to a teammate.
I've said it before, but I wonder how many of the modern coaches would have Jimmy Johnston in their teams?, I reckon a lot of them wouldn't like him dribbling with the ball, and they would no doubt want someone who tracked back better and had a good "engine".
I wouldn't mind betting there are quite a lot of young players out there who didn't make the grade because they were better footballers than athletes.

I thought Rodgers did a good job at Swansea but a poor job at Liverpool. I hope to goodness it's the Rodgers from Swansea that we see and not the Rodgers from Liverpool.
It always looked to me when I saw Liverpool play that he couldn't sort out their defence, if he struggles to sort out our defence then we are going to be in trouble.

Union jack, you take clutching at straws to new levels.
I'll happily settle for Dembele going a whole 2 games without a goal, his 33 goals up till then have done more than enough damage to be going on with.
I think you should be more concerned about the dross at your own club, you haven't got one single player that I would want for our team, you would even struggle to get any of them into our second team.

I think that youngsters should only get a place in the first team if they are good enough.
After the split we will have away matches at Ibrox and Pittodrie, I wouldn't want to give any of those sides a cause for optimism before next season.

Jonace, I suppose when you spend £2m on a player there is a pressure to show that the money hasn't been wasted.
There is a tendency in football where clubs would rather pay money for players rather than go with their own youngsters. Man Utd sold Pogba for around £5m, then spent £89m to buy him back. Chelsea sold Lukaku to Everton for I think it was £17m, and now a couple of years later want to spend £50m to bring him back.
It's as if clubs can only see how good a player is when they play for someone else.


{Ed007's Note - Pogba left Utd on a free after refusing to use one of Fergie's cronies as his agent and the compensation was around £800,000 which also had to be shared with Le Havre where Utd signed him from (a move FIFA investigated) and a couple of other small French clubs.}

I've said before that even if a referee goes into one of these games intending to be truly fair, you can't be sure how they'll react when they have to give a decision in the last minute of a match which is likely to cost his favourite team the match.
It's human nature that he's likely to instantly give the decision in favour of his own team.
Why the SFA think that this won't happen is beyond me. If they were to bring in referees from outside it wouldn't just be fairer to us, it would also be fairer to the refs themselves.
