It's a sign of how football has changed in the last few years, that in 2001 we went and took Leicester Cities manager in Martin O'Neil and then their best player in Lennon, and it was seen as a step up for both of them. We could pay better wages and offer a greater platform for success.
Now it's the opposite. Some folk say the money in that League is a bubble which will soon burst but I'm not sure it will to the extent we are able to compete financially again.
Does anyone know what we actually plan to do with the 40 million we have in the bank? Is it for the hotel etc, or as I hope, for a massive player shopping spree when we clear out the deadwood in the squad. We can dream.

A large chunk of that money will be used to cover our expenses from now until end of season.

Ive noticed that we could potentially end up with 12 points in this group and still fail to qualify. Does anyone know if this has ever happened before? O'Neills teams got 9 points twice and never qualified, which is rare. Strachan did it once with 8 points I'm sure. But to get more than 10 and not go through can't have happened often.

I wonder if the Chinese club Rodgers rejected is the same one that was trying to buy Morelos for a Billion in Jan.
Or is "Chinese club" just a modern football term for "This didn't really happen".
Why is this being made public at this particular time?

He is trying to say he is committed to us. Because the media are all saying he is for the off. So he came out and said if wanted out he could have gone.


2.) 27 Sep 2018 08:12:02
Thought we battered them second half. Their goalie made at least 3 great saves.

Thought we were in for a what's the goalie Doing moment at the end. Bain got lucky when he came flying out.


3.) 27 Sep 2018 14:53:42
I could swear that some posters here, condemn Gordon for not coming out .


4.) 27 Sep 2018 22:45:40
Chris we want a keeper to come out and make sure he at least challenges for the ball, bain got caught in 2 minds. Concentration is a major attribute for a keeper, aye he had hee haw to do for most of the game but that was a moment of madness.


5.) 28 Sep 2018 13:12:26
Maybe Sstepbhoy2 you now understand that the Celtic defensive tactics is depending on the defenders taking care of the ball. Our tactics involve goalkeeper not having. a moment of madness and charging out blindly for ball and distracting defenders . This tactic is common wit some successful teams and other successful teams leave ball for keeper . What u can't do is have both defenders and keeper going for the one ball.
Commons does what he is coached to do.

So I wonder if porto fans are saying they should be embarrassed about taking a hiding in Europe, and that they aren't really a CL club and shouldn't even bother. Probably not.

Of course it's embarrassing to take a hiding no matter who you are or who against.


2.) 15 Feb 2018 09:38:33
Porto fans will probably be doing what we did. Identify where they are needing to improve to reduce the chances of getting horsed and get players in to help with that.

Maybe they will do something about it, unlike us who operate on hope and a few hail mary’s.

As teams get better across Europe it very well be the case that them and us won’t be considered CL teams even by our respective boards anymore.

Tonight will tell us all we need to know if we have any right to talk about ourselves in CL terms.

I’m actually quite calm today, as my expectation levels suffered a blow after the window, so I’m not expecting much. I still have the feeling if we play the way we can we can get a result, but playing like we can has been a fleeting thing all this season. Zenit are better than Anderlecht imo so it’s going to be a night not suited to a rabbits in headlights approach as we saw against Anderlecht and PSG.

I thought it would be a tall order even if we did bring in a few first team defenders and a good keeper. We did none of that so it’s an even bigger ask with our injuries and our key players not delivering so far. This game could be a turning point. Win and we pick up a charge to the end of the season. Get embarrassed and the confidence could fall further. Time for the players to step up and play like men. Not overawed weans too feart to play their game. Let’s hope they do. I actually think they will step up, but don’t listen to me, I would have lost my house on the window purchases. not that anybody listens to me, but you know what I mean, my vibe has been wide of the mark and I could be wrong about them stepping up too.

3.1 to us if we step up

2.0 to them if we don’t.

Seen in an article today that the value of the club has rocketed by 50M in the last six months. 173M it is valued at now, over 100M more than two years ago. It's more than the rest of the country combined and is only going to increase. What will it be once the hotel, Celtic Way etc are finished. It could double again.

Much of this is down to Rodgers, he is paid a lot but it seems like pennies for what it has brought us.

And they think that "catching us" is just around the corner, a few good signings away. It's like us trying to catch Barcelona, and turning on every manager who fails. We're over the horizon for good now I think.

@Isleofgreen to be fair and balanced, I heard pedro has managed to add 50PENCE on to their value lol.


2.) 08 Sep 2017 18:53:56
Did he leave it as a tip after his world class breakfast Tim? To be fair that's 50% of what the club was bought for so it is an achievment.


3.) 08 Sep 2017 20:43:10
According to a report today, they tried to sign McCormack from Villa on deadline day (the same report says he's on £45K a week at the moment. ) but it went on to say that if they had signed him, they would be well in with a chance of winning the league! Even more laughably, they said the "deal" could be resurrected in January and that that could still make the difference. Jeeeeeezzzzzzuuuuuuzzzzz!


4.) 09 Sep 2017 12:17:39
That's never going to happen. He's Pish.

More of a 433 I think with Brown Ntcham and Bitton controlling the game and Johnstone Griff and morgan attacking. Be good to see how Ralston does.

It does seem steep but then he is like their teirney, and they're quite right to be wanting top dollar for him.

He'll be replaced by a free transfer on the last day of the window. The board will mumble something about strengthening in January. Everyone will be happy. If the club are adamant they are selling him then the player won't have much choice.

I agree with most of what you say there bobthecat, but I wouldn't exactly say we were weak in Europe as we reached the knockout stages of EL. I'd say that was average. Don't forget we knocked out Leipzig and no one says they are a weak team, far from it.
It's clear though we need a couple of quality additions to be more consistent in how we play, and we need our best 11 available and on form or we struggle against the very good sides.

He also brought through Tierney and Mcgregor, changed Griffiths into the player he is now. He is under appreciated but like Fergus in time the fans will see what he did for our club. He Certainly wasn't a bad manager.

I second that jim tim I will be very pleasantly surprised if we do much more business this window. I fear it's same old. I also fear Slavia Prague if we finish the job against Cluj.

I wouldn't describe Arsenal even in their current state as mediocre I'm sure they are one of the richest clubs in the world and can and will pay KT several times what he is currently on.

Hopefully with the English window closing early, and with 25M in our pocket we can get a few shrewd deals done with players who weren't picked up by the money league.
However I still think it will be like last summer, and I'm sure our first choice LB and RB just played tonight.
Tierney will be very sorely missed on the park, and the money is useless unless we spend it improving the first team.
