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.

I noticed that the 2 games we have dropped points in this season have come after midweek champions league away games.
Given that we are away to Bayern Munich on Wednesday 18th October, I'm surprised the club didn't push for our semi final to be played on the Sunday, a Saturday lunchtime game doesn't give us much time in between.
When you look at Hibs yesterday they got tore into us, it's not hard to see what their tactics will be at Hampden.


1.) 01 Oct 2017 12:36:49
Gerry - I think Brendan needs to ditch this 3 at the back unless it’s against the lower level teams.

It suits no one and we are very rarely comfortable using it.

Stick with our 4231 where we not only play but control games more.

2.) 01 Oct 2017 13:19:02
Fair point Kev.



24 Aug 2017 19:41:44
I think it's a fair enough draw.
Whoever we drew would have been tough, but at least we should be able to battle it out for third place if not better.
I'm glad we avoided the Madrid, Dortmund, and Spurs group, that would have been a real group of death.
It seems a strange system they use to work out the seedings. Two seasons ago PSG knocked Chelsea out, last season PSG got to the quarter finals and Chelsea didn't qualify for the competition at all, yet this season Chelsea are in pot 1, whilst PSG are in pot 2.
There must be a logical explanation for this, but I can't see it.


1.) 24 Aug 2017 20:15:37
Pot 1 was the league winners from the top 8 countries in the co-efficient Gerry.

2.) 24 Aug 2017 20:33:44
Pot 1 were all champions of the top coefficient countries hence why Barca, PSG, etc were in Pot 2 ( I think ) πŸ‘€.



17 Aug 2017 17:45:42
I couldn't be happier today, after half an hour last night I would have been happy with any sort of a win, but to almost certainly put the tie beyond doubt was just brilliant.
I see that there are some people in the press coming out with the tired old line that it isn't good for Scottish football that we are so strong, how Celtic being weaker is supposed to help things is beyond me.
What Celtic have done is what every other club in the league could do, they live within their means, they have hungry players who want to improve, and they have a manager who is able to actually make these players better.
I don't want to start the old "was he a good Celtic manager or not" debate, but you can see with Neil Lennon at Hibs what can happen when you have a manager who is not content to just bump along the bottom, he hasn't spent vast amounts there.
Instead of trying to belittle our success, the rest of Scottish football should be trying to copy us, they may find it enables them to have more than one club in European competition after June.


1.) 17 Aug 2017 18:27:54
The Scottish Media is as old an institution as the lodge and their knuckledragging followers who dress up in silly costumes and white gloves. They are inexplicably linked. Don't expect any huge praise for how we destroyed a team the same media thought we would struggle against. That didn't go too well for the sports 'journalists' who had probably already written there damning report on how we struggled to beat an Kazakhstani side.
The BBC English news covered our win better than the Scottish Biased Broadcasting Company!
Our print media and BBC Scotland are an absolute joke!

2.) 17 Aug 2017 18:38:56
Thanks Ed! Here's me thinking Azerbaijan was the capital of Kazakhstan! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚.

The only people in Scotland who grudge our success or see it as a blight on the game are still in mourning for the club that died in 2012 and feel only regret, envy and anger.
There was a time in the 80's when Dundee Utd and Aberdeen were the best in Scotland and formidable in Europe and when I started watching football in the early 60's there were Dunfermline, Kilmarnock and Hibs putting up strong domestic challenges and European football.
None of these clubs had pots of cash or sponsorship, but hard working, skilful coaches and players doing their best.
Nowadays far too many players have poor attitudes and large wallets and should be using Celtic as inspiration.
Recently Aberdeen, St Johnstone, Inverness and a few others have faltered too soon in qualifiers against poor sides, but mysteriously raise their game a handful of times a season when it suits?

4.) 17 Aug 2017 22:48:58
was mentioned in commentary that the FA in Kazi postponed the game Astana have this weekend so they can have the ideal prep for the games.

meanwhile in Scotland we have EIGHT games in August. I know its early and we should be fit - but MD and LG were both injured and apparently we can't have 3 top class strikers here.

Wonder if we will get free weekends when the Champions League fixtures are announced, you know to give us a chance to fly the flag, and put more money into Scottish clubs.

We got ragers 270k and they still haven't paid for the lavvies.

Its all wrong - another example of how good we have to be PLUS 10% on top.

I see that Rogic got a one match ban for celebrating scoring the winner that won us the treble, meanwhile no action is to be taken against Stockley for elbowing Tierney in the face and breaking his jaw.
If anything sums up how inept the SFA are, then surely that is it.


1.) 30 May 2017 19:56:22
Rogic has nobody to blame but himself for picking up too many bookings, although I'm sure it was well worth it!

2.) 30 May 2017 21:47:12
it should not be a bookable offense to run to your fans or take your shirt of celebrating a goal it's almost as bad as American football where the NFL decide what type of celebrations are acceptable. for me unless your standing in front of the opposing fans/ bench giving the old up your's it should be all good.

3.) 30 May 2017 22:01:28
Agree with kevbhoy, although it was a great goal and worthy of celebration, all players know when they leave the field and run into the fans they are getting booked.



28 May 2017 21:23:14
I just wanted to say how proud I was of the team yesterday.
With the anniversary of the Lisbon lions, doing a treble for only the fourth time in our history, and probably a once in a lifetime opportunity to go through an entire domestic season unbeaten, the pressure on these players was absolutely massive.
I think that because Aberdeen turned up and made a match of it, the win seemed even more special.
I must admit that when Brendan Rodgers was appointed last year, I wasn't totally convinced he was the best choice. I'd seen that for a while as Liverpool's boss they couldn't defend to save their lives, and I feared that he might be another Tony Mowbray, where we were okay going forward but defensively a shambles.
The job he's done here though has been magnificent, the way he has improved several players, the team spirit that he's created, and his tactical knowledge, has absolutely transformed us. I've not enjoyed watching a Celtic team as much as this one for many years.
My only worry looking ahead to next season is that how can you top this, I mean we could win the treble again, yet if we lost one league match, some people would say that we couldn't match the achievements of the previous season, that's how high the bar has been set.
Well done Brendan and the team, you have earned your own place in Celtic's history.


1.) 28 May 2017 23:31:13
Think a lot of us were the same Gerry I have to admit he wasn't my first choice after some of the Liverpool stuff but as good managers and players do he has learned from his mistakes and has done an unbelievable job and lifted the entire support let's hope it's just the start. H.H.

If the fee for Roberts is way beyond what we can afford then fair enough, if however our board are playing silly games with Man City and we end up losing out on his signature, then I reckon there will be a fair bit of anger amongst the supporters.
With the money we earned last season from the Champions league, the money we will get when Van Djik moves on, and 50.000 season tickets sold, it would be terrible to lose a player of Roberts ability due to us trying to be too clever for our own good.

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.

I also hope that Pedro stays, any other manager although not being able to compete with Celtic would surely have them better organised and with a better team spirit than they have now.
I don't want the fun to end.
I don't know how much Pedro's team cost to put together, I thought that they were mostly other teams cast offs, other people say they spent quite a lot of money on them, but with what it would cost to sack him, I doubt that they could afford another rebuilding job.

I never quite know what point a lot of these pundits are trying to make.
Teams who have far greater spending power than us have been hammered by Bayern Munich, why then is it such a terrible thing when we lose there? .
Unless something changes regarding the finances in football our goal will have to be to qualify for the group stages, if we could somehow get a decent draw one of these years then maybe we might have a chance of going further.
Even in the Premier league, despite having all these riches Stoke conceded 7 against Man City, and Watford lost 6 goals against them at home. If clubs who have all this cash can't compete with these elite teams then how on earth are we meant to.

He's probably been ordered from above not to pick too many Celtic players as it makes Scotland look bad.
I was impressed with both McGinn and McGregor last Saturday, I find it hard to believe that there isn't a space for one of them in Scotland's line up. They haven't got the talent to ignore decent young players like that.

What McCann did for us is what should be happening over at Sevco.
Clubs at the end of the day need to be built on a sound financial base, it doesn't sit well with fans when they see their rivals are outclassing them on the field but spending money you can't afford is only going to get you in worse trouble down the line.
When people say it's easy for us, and that we have no competition, they forget the hardships our club went through to get here, our club has been run correctly over the last few years, that's why we can enjoy the good times now.
The fact that other clubs are run in a shambolic way and try to spend money they don't have is their fault, it's certainly no reason to take the achievements away from us.
It shows the value of good management, and that you can't take shortcuts and cheat your way to success.
