I heard a rumour that martinez along with maloney and Kennedy will be the management team for next season has anyone else heard this it was from my Mrs who is on celtic minded and it's supposed to be on there.


1.) 10 Mar 2019 10:09:54
Total BLOX!

2.) 10 Mar 2019 10:17:20
Didn't Martinez knock back the real job earlier in the season?

3.) 11 Mar 2019 09:07:39
I am just posting what I ws told.



30 Jan 2019 17:47:24
Gutman deal dependant on a work permit according to David hannah.


1.) 30 Jan 2019 18:37:10
So much for all the rumours saying he went AWOL and we had withdrawn our offer.



12 Aug 2018 19:57:49
Ed. Three or four people have told me that paddy Roberts agent was up last week. Something about him coming in on a four or five year deal. Have you heard anything on this. Cheers.


{Ed007's Note - It's Allan Preston (ex-Hearts player that used to be on BBC Sportsound) from Stellar Football that represents Roberts - and their other clients - in Scotland and the story is that he contacted Peter Lawwell the other day to see if Celtic would be interested in signing Roberts on a permanent deal.
It's probably from Preston that ex-Celtic Boys Club player Alex Rae heard that he was coming back too.}

1.) 12 Aug 2018 20:55:51
Should his agent really need to be the one to contact us? You’d like to think that we were keeping an eye on his situation and as soon as their window closed we’d put a bid in.

2.) 12 Aug 2018 21:38:06
Rodgers himself has said he is keeping an eye on Roberts situation. Now that the Premiership window has closed we may be in a better position to do something.

3.) 12 Aug 2018 21:39:53
So baring that in mind could there be a 10percent chance of him joining us ED?

{Ed007's Note -


4.) 12 Aug 2018 22:20:52
There is no fight club.

5.) 12 Aug 2018 22:21:56
Would rather we signed at least 2 defenders .

6.) 12 Aug 2018 22:46:21
Haha ed classic, never mind only 2 1/ 2 weeks to go 😂.

{Ed007's Note - I'm counting the minutes.......

7.) 12 Aug 2018 23:32:39
I wouldn't believe anything that comes from fat boy Preston half the time he doesn't know what day it is lol.

8.) 13 Aug 2018 07:58:28
Might just be me but I’m not 100% on signing Roberts again. He clearly thought he was better than Celtic and is only coming back because he couldn’t get a move elsewhere? I’d rather see a bit more movement in the defence tbh.

I would also prefer it if Brendan would stop tinkering with the team! There’s no coincidence why we went unbeaten in our first season, and looked convincing in doing so.

Martin O’Neill’s team competed in the champions league along with the league and cups yet never seemed to need rested like this team does. 5 changes at the weekend was just utterly ridiculous. He is a very clever man, so hoping he was doing it to prove a point that the quality isn’t in the depth we have.

9.) 13 Aug 2018 07:05:14
Cheers Ed your the man.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)



18 May 2018 16:46:15
Heard we are front runners for abel hernandez don't know if there is much truth in it though. If we sign OE permanently then this should be a non goer.


1.) 18 May 2018 17:28:05
Dembele will be off in the summer. Especially after not making the world Cup squad. So Edouard LG and Abel wouldn't be a bad 3 strikers on the books.

2.) 18 May 2018 19:37:04
Mate even Martial didn't make the squad. He may well be off but don't think that'll be the reason.

{Ed007's Note - Lacazette and Benzema didn't make the squad either, when you look at the forwards France are taking it's frightening.}

3.) 18 May 2018 20:03:45
ED do you reckon Dembele will sign a new deal?

{Ed007's Note - I don't know mate but I hope so, even another 2 years would do me.}

4.) 18 May 2018 20:15:11
I fancy them to win it Ed.

{Ed007's Note - But you can't cheer on a team wearing THOSE colours, it's Germany for me.}

5.) 18 May 2018 20:39:57
I’ll choose Germany Aswell ED only because of that new away kit.

{Ed007's Note - That's as good a reason as any I suppose lol.}

6.) 18 May 2018 20:43:14
I'll probably watch 3 games maximum. I struggle to watch any game that doesn't involve Celtic. I lose interest after about 3 minutes.

7.) 18 May 2018 21:22:10
Same here Stan. It's not the same game for me unless the tic are on the park.

8.) 18 May 2018 22:25:39
Same here Stan. Haven't seen a full game that wasn't Scottish football in years. Don't watch epl and haven't seen the last 5 champions league finals.

9.) 18 May 2018 23:28:33
I picked Germany to win it also.
I really hope this world cup is a good one as the last few have been really dull.

{Ed007's Note - You can trace the decline of international football back to Diana Ross missing a penalty and the goal still exploding at the opening ceremony of USA '94.}

10.) 19 May 2018 09:44:42
Lacazette and benzema didn't make the squad? Damn that is indeed frightening. Fantastic for our main man tho.

11.) 19 May 2018 09:59:30
Sorry misread bravetart's post. Shame Moussa didn't get the nod. Could see him really rocking el mundial.

12.) 19 May 2018 12:52:46
People were saying Rogic was away from all sorts of sources. Let’s wait and see with big Moussa.

Has the Bhoy turnbull signed yet.


1.) 23 Jun 2019 22:00:09
Not been confirmed yet.



22 Jun 2019 11:18:28
Does anyone know if the RB from Copenhagen is any good.


1.) 22 Jun 2019 11:46:56
He’s too good for there league and would fit right in with out club Marco. Played over 50 European games etc. I’ve listed all of the reasons why we should sign him on a previous post. But yes. He’s a danish international also. Great replacement for Lustig and scores quiet frequently for a right back also.

2.) 22 Jun 2019 14:26:54
Well let's hope we can get him.

3.) 22 Jun 2019 18:48:38
Sounds exactly what we need. Hopefully we sign him.



17 Jun 2019 08:33:58
Who really cares if turnbull signs I for one don't. I don't ever recall him standing out against us. So I think we should move on and get someone who wants to be here and let him goto sevco if that's what he wants.


1.) 17 Jun 2019 11:06:19
Initially I was very happy and excited about both the prospect and the fact we were trying to get business done early doors for a change
Now the whole debacle has become tediously disappointing and maybe even damaging, in the way 'salaries' and wage structures are being discussed in public. The guy has never shown any intent or desire to join Celtic from day-one and that should be enough to shut the door.

2.) 17 Jun 2019 11:26:48
Should be a deadline set before pulling offer. End of.



16 Jun 2019 06:08:04
Turnbull now saying a deal could still happen. Tell him to sod off he had his chance.


1.) 16 Jun 2019 07:22:46
I wouldn't quite say that just yet. As much as he'll be in dialogue with his agent I feel that young players can be ill advised. But yes, he needs to show that he wants to sign. The boy Connell comes into the equation for me too. This is two young midfielders, projects, squad players, the same age, that we are in for. Yet we're trying to get quality over quantity and trim the squad? Just offer Connell a contract and see how keen he is. Save 3m and concentrate on improving the starting XI.

2.) 16 Jun 2019 07:25:30
Nay be the agents to blame and the lads getting some bad advice and agents are prone to looking after themselves the bigger the deal the bigger there cut.

3.) 16 Jun 2019 07:49:28
No one knows if it was him or his agent that turnd the first offer down . i personally would love it if we signed him
15 goals from cm from a team like Motherwell ( no disrespect) and only 19 he can only get better and he’s Scottish! Come board get this kid signed up.

4.) 16 Jun 2019 10:02:41
Why do players need agents? Can't they speak for themselves?

5.) 16 Jun 2019 10:09:55
If he takes a reduced wage now might consider
He has just realised what he has done.
I would move on but we will see.

6.) 16 Jun 2019 10:14:53
An agent can't turn down the offer without speaking to the player first.

7.) 16 Jun 2019 10:55:05
He needs to sack his agent if he's scuppered this deal without his say so.



07 Mar 2019 22:53:20
Would anybody fancy Marcus Rose to be our new manager. I would love this. His team has shown us a lesson in Europe a few times. Plus salt burg play good attacking football.


1.) 08 Mar 2019 00:03:30
Imagine if his Celtic team got the same result as his Salzburg did tonight at Napoli, he would be getting pelters on here 😉.

2.) 08 Mar 2019 07:18:35
Napoli are a Quality side not a surprising result.

3.) 08 Mar 2019 11:15:07
I'd take him in a heartbeat but also I'd have no problems with Lennon getting it if he bags the treble. I had my concerns that Lenny would be too volatile and we can't afford to have a gaffer in the stands for weeks at a time when we're so close to the 10, but he seems a bit more calm these days.

4.) 08 Mar 2019 12:28:18
Salzburg had 21 shots at goal away to Napoli, so they were unlucky to lose 3-0.
I want Lenny to be our next permanent manager but if we were to appoint a foreign manager I wouldn't have a problem with it being the Salzburg coach because he ticks all the boxes.

5.) 08 Mar 2019 13:38:16
NL would be a step backwards and it's as simple as that for me.

6.) 08 Mar 2019 13:44:52
I would take him in a heart beat but why would he leave to come to us, when he has just beat us twice in a season? I think this one is a non starter for me. It will be Lennon or clarke (hopefully lennon)

7.) 08 Mar 2019 16:20:49
Lennon every day of the week for me. If not Lenny the Marco Rose would be my number 1 choice.

This is just my opinion but if you look beyond the fact that Lennon is a Celtic man who has played, captained and Manged the club before as well as working with Lawwell and the board in my opinion Lennon is a very talented and knowledgeable manager who has fantastic qualities. His teams play an attacking and attractive brand of football and he demands the best out of his players both individually and as a team.

8.) 08 Mar 2019 17:12:37
As long as there are a decent amount put into the transfer kitty then onwards we go for 9 in a row.

I think KT wants to go onto the highest level plus from what I heard was that he wasn't keen on the standard of players being brought in.

Ed I totally agree with you mate I went from a state of total elation to desperation within hours. I am still gutted. This appointment is a huge mistake.
