Fixtures mean if the undead get into top 6 they are due to play us, aberdeen and hearts all at home after the split. How could the computer come out with that? Paranoia kicking in again.

They will get and need all the help available.


2.) 18 Jun 2016 21:45:45
Personally I think they have done a decent job rebuilding their team and have made some good free transfer signings. The St Johnstone game at home has been long forgotten due to them convincing beating a Dundee team that are very hit or miss (pretty sure we put 6/ 8 past them at the start of the season) us losing to them with one of the poorest displays I've ever seen from a Celtic team (Legia and Molde aside) has only added to their over estimations! However I'm very intrigued to see how they fare against the likes of Aberdeen, Hearts even Motherwell. Especially with Barton rubbin his gums about being a class above the whole of the SPL.


3.) 19 Jun 2016 08:37:35
Will be interesting right enough but I reckon Barton's rating of being a class above applies more readily to us, Aberdeen, Hearts and perhaps Motherwell and maybe even Dundee on their day. For me that puts a definite 3 teams streets ahead of them and potentially 5 teams. Reckon they may well be lucky to be anywhere near title race by February, could surprise people though. Joey Barton is a good player but his age and temperament mat see him spend more time on sidelines than on park.


4.) 19 Jun 2016 10:59:09
Imagine they drop a few points in these so called easy games and we win all our so called hard games. How demoralised would they be by the time they get to parkhead in September? League could be over by easter again.


5.) 19 Jun 2016 11:28:14
This split is a farce imo. Not only that, they don't release the fixtures for the split until just before they are due.
Lets get to a sensible size league with home and away fixtures.


6.) 19 Jun 2016 13:10:47
Yip its paranoia.


7.) 19 Jun 2016 15:46:46
Tiny Tim I agree the split thing is a complete bollocks .
This year's SPL will be a complete nonsense as I cannot see Rangers 2012 lasting until the split . Rangers are in total melt-down and because of not been listed, the South African tax defrauded, a glib and shameless liar, is prepared to say anything or do anŷthing to keep the show rumbling on hoping for a miracle.

Interesting stat. Celtic pld 35 pt 80 good +55. Sevco pld 35 pts 80 good +54. Yet the breadman is acclaimed as the new messiah. Makes you wonder.

They have improved this season while we have not.


2.) 30 Apr 2016 18:52:12
warburton is a better manager than Delia. Just look at the last game. RD was always out of his depth and the comments that Collins and Kennedy could manage the club just show how little he really understands the club. I think it also blows away the comments from some supporters that Collins and Kennedy were forced upon him. It's clear that he rates them? So all in all it is starting to look more and more obvious that RD wS wY out of his depth.


3.) 30 Apr 2016 18:57:59
Sorry again ed I feel relly bad now, (celtic and ronny are great)


4.) 30 Apr 2016 19:02:33
Agree with Kev. The football they have watched is far better than the dross we've watched in the main. People still wax lyrical about Tommy Burns' team and they hardly won a thing. The fans will forgive the odd poor result if they're being entertained.


5.) 30 Apr 2016 20:29:47
When u are a child Kev, u are easily entertained at football& other places, teens not too bad if someone else is paying, however once u head through the 20's and pay for your own season book, it can be very hard to be entertained .
There is no way any honest impartial observer could describe Warburton's achievements as so vast in comparison to R D.


6.) 30 Apr 2016 22:42:46
Ed, i was not trying to be funny or anything when I asked your opinion on warburton as a manager i'm intrested in your thoughts.

{Ed007's Note - I don't have an opinion on him, he's not important enough or knowledgeable enough about football to even be on my radar. I'd have done a better job managing TRIFC this year and wouldn't have needed penalties to beat the five-in-a-row champions of the country. What's your opinion of Mrs Warburton, right now she's far more important to TRIFC than her hubby is, some would even say she's more important to TRIFC than Dave King's £30 million investment.}


7.) 01 May 2016 00:01:37
How can people even compare warburton to deila. In Spain do they compare Barcelona to alaves and elche?

Warburton is playing against players who play as a hobby alongside their full time job. people seem to forget. it's not actually comparable.


8.) 01 May 2016 10:34:54
Old Bhoy I am a 33 year old father of 4 who has paid for my season ticket since I started work at 16.
I can see with my own eyes that Warburton has improved them this season and Ronny hasn't improved us.
Yes they and the press are going over the top but I can see why they are happy and why we are not.


9.) 01 May 2016 22:28:30
So Kev83 u watch Sevco playing part timers . Is this in person or on TV.
Sevco use TV viewing to get more matches shown.


10.) 02 May 2016 12:18:58
Strange answer ed but ok, i asked mainly because the football rangers are playing more so in the semi is the kind of football celtic fans want and thought they were going to get under ronny, who from what I've read you rate very highly.

{Ed007's Note - I've no idea what kind of football TRIFC usually play as I don't watch lower league football, if I wanted to watch bus drivers and plumbers play I'll go down the local park, I'm not even sure if i get BBC Alba.
Considering you seem to think you played this brilliant football and we didn't you'd think you would have had us beat long before penalties. We had 33 shots at goal - and that was us playing garbage. Imagine what we'll do when we play better next season, I hardly think TRIFC signing a couple of diddies on a free from Accrington Stanley is giving Peter Lawwell any sleepless nights.}


11.) 02 May 2016 14:46:03
Ok ed i'm away to imagine just how good celtic will be next season, you will be hoping better than under ronny, the guy who was dragging your club into modern day forward thinking football (your words) the best manager in scotland (also your words) .

{Ed007's Note - Good to see your keeping up with Scotland's top club while your new team works it's way up the leagues. Ronny Deila has easily proven to the best manager in Scotland these past two seasons, we've got 2 league titles to show for it and the statistics are there to back it up. Robbie Neilson from Hearts has proven over time to be a top young manager and apart from RD is by far the best in Scotland, then there's Derek McInnes who has worked wonders at Aberdeen as has John Hughes at Inverness.
And remember all those men are managing in the top level of Scotland, anything outside that is comparable to amateur level you can see on any public park. For the budget TRIFC have borrowed they should have coasted through that league and yet they have lost more league games than Celtic this year who have played vastly superior opposition week in and week out. How do you explain that?
If Mrs Warburton let's Mark stay and TRIFC make the top six next season that will be seen as a major success. Without major investment your inexperienced players and manager will struggle playing against a better standard of opposition every week - there's no part time teams in the top league. And a 53 year old inexperienced manager at that, he won't know what's hit him next season and if he doesn't get off to a flier there will be calls for him to be sacked.
Between his personal problems and how difficult it's going to be in TRIFCs debut season in the top league I don't see Warburton being here to see us win 6 in a row. I don't think he'll face the humiliation of being sacked from the TRIFC job, it would be a sore one for a 54 year old to have been sacked from the only two jobs he's had in management.
I've seen plenty of TRIFC fans on the live chat questioning the manager's tactics during matches so at least there are some of you looking at things logically. You should maybe have a word with some of them and keep your feet on the ground.}


12.) 02 May 2016 15:49:52
Do you watch a lot of accrington games then ed, can you tell me in what way are they diddies, so I can tell some of the boys on our bus, they seem to think they look decent but I don't know if they have seen as much of them as you. you know to a have an opinion on them, cheers.

{Ed007's Note - They're 22/23 and playing in the FOURTH tier of English football - that's the Fourth Division - there's nothing else needs to be said. And seriously mate, well done on trying to get 'ra peepul' on your bus talking about football, that should help cut down on the sectarian and racist singing and chanting. You're doing a good thing there and you should be proud of yourself for trying to educate them, past experience tells me you're pissing in the wind though but good luck.
It must be some bus when you're on a CFC site asking a CFC supporter for his thoughts to share with them - I'll take a wild stab in the dark and say that you're not the brains of this particular operation.
Has your bus looked into what school the Accrington lads went to, you know, the important stuff you all get hung up on?}


13.) 02 May 2016 18:10:01
Poor show wee man with the no reply stance you have taken, but any of your usual posters no doubt will look at your last reply and think about how witty and untouchable you are, so you should be proud of yourself you done really good.

{Ed007's Note - I'm not here to take abuse from the likes of you. I was being civil even answering you as I try not to mix with people of your ilk but you had to resort to type so the conversation is now over. I'm bored playing with you for now so it's back in your box for today sadly. I might keep you around as some kind of pet to annoy when the mood takes but I've yet to decide that, I'll mull it over while I have my dinner. You need to work on your manners though, and deal with the scuffs on your knuckles.
That should give you time to phone round the boys from the bus and tell them how raging I've got you today. I'm sure they'll all be as raging as you.
Before I forget I don't want to be seeing any other posts that lead to the likes of this from you:

30 Apr 2016 18:42:44

Ed, sorry for that last post, i can understand why you didnt put it up, i did not think about why that post would upset you or anyone else but after reading it again I get it, sorry again x.

And after your shameless and mortifying grovelling to a stranger on the internet I still gave you a chance and was civil to you. I couldn't care less what anyone thinks of me, especially a total stranger on the internet.
And what the hell was the kiss on the end all about? I'm flattered mate but I'm WAY out of your league even if I did go in for some backdoor shenanigans. Each to their own though and I'm sure you and the boys on your bus are very happy.
I've actually worked up quite a hunger toying with you today, bon appetit. I guess that I really did 'done really good'.}

Thought after last week it should have been 100 and out. After wed and today even more so. Hard to say sack the manager but this has to stop before we lose the league.

I honestly believe at the present time we would be better without a management team between now and end of season. There is something far wrong in the dressing room and it is severely hampering us at a crucial time of the season. My suspicions as I've said many times on here is Collins , I think he is despised amongst the team and its having an effect on team morale hence performances


2.) 07 Feb 2016 18:28:36
Half pint it looked a poor performance but I don't think you can read much into that game. Celtic never got out of second gear. It was a waste of time game. What was telling however was that Carton Cole does not even make the bench and yet Ronnie sets up as a 4-4-2? Once again shows what a waste of a contract the CCole deal was. Now Ronnie saw him train for 6 weeks and he was given a contract so Ronnie must have been in agreement to take him.


3.) 07 Feb 2016 20:16:08
Carlton Cole is injured not sure where but is waiting on scan results pending an operation.


4.) 07 Feb 2016 20:22:46
Johnnymac, that is my whole point. You say we didn, t get out of 2nd gear. When was the last time we dug in and turned a game around? Sorry but ronnie has to go or we will lose the league god forbid.


5.) 08 Feb 2016 17:22:27
Half pint I am no Ronnie fan and agree we should have been out if 2nd gear. Let's see what happens next game. I really think pressure is right on him now he can't afford another defeat especially if Aberdeen go out and win again.
