There has been too many incidents over past few years involving Beaton. He is incompetent and a cheat. There is no way even an amature league referee would think even 1 of the incidents in question was legit.

Hearing rumours he used to have a season ticket at Castle grey skull. Hopefully he gets his wings clipped for game and sent down a few leagues.

Royjac the board post our finances at AGMs etc. Go read it for yourself. £45mil.

Also people saying rangers signings won't win them the league

Or AEK we should have had enough to beat them.

Why are rangers the benchmark? They are terrible. We have no choice but to aim higher now.

Higher than the likes or rangers and AEK. This whole happy to scrape by is exactly the problem.

About time we tried to match our potential as a club.

Bizzare team selection yesterday. Thought Gordon played one of best games i've seen, Brown and Ntcham don't work anymore. That mob celebrating like they have league already. We are still top and have game in hand idiots! We will strenghten in january and deal with position issues.

DVD from game yesterday will no doubt be on sale friday knowing popeye (dave king)

Hi. there is a lot of panic merchants on this site. wrong therm wrong tactics even saying that there were some players who did not do themselves justice sinclair bottled it every time and not for the first. Time. ntcham clearly does not have the appetite for crunch games like these. lustig should never be an automatic pick. forrest let Halliday charge up and down the left all game . yess we were crap but no reason for fans to panic. tierney. rogic. edouard fully fit mcgregor in midfield and I’m sure replay that game we would win it. br must take blame for tactics that clearly did not work . we move on and sign a penalty box forward and a r. b and a class midfielder who can burst out fast onto the box. armstrong like . so relax Bhoy we are still the best team in the league geogeo.

2.) 30 Dec 2018 14:56:58
Whos panicing?

3.) 30 Dec 2018 15:16:17
Thought Gordon caused a lot of the problems with his distribution and not commanding his box. 3 of his saves was from his mistakes.

4.) 30 Dec 2018 16:48:01
Gordon doesn't know when to pass and when to punt either that or it's stubbornness and see if a see him clip the ball head height to lustig who gives away possession because there's nothing he can do with the ball al scream.

Phil, was just on their page and actually seen "mind the gap" lol, let them be the masters of their own downfall, it happens all the time, they believe the hype, then reality bites them. 55 will not be coming, not until after the 10 has came to us, we move on, and come back stronger, they won't like you knowing, but they're still second, we're champions for a reason, HH.

6.) 30 Dec 2018 17:14:02
Tim 55 is a fantasy and cannot happen unless they pay off all old rangers debts and ask to bring back old club like Fiorentina did. Until that happens their next title will be their first.
I believe they will eventually win their first title but it will be club number 3 that will achieve it, after we win 10 in a row they will fold again and start all over again debt free. After all its Scottish football and they can do what ever they want.

7.) 30 Dec 2018 18:18:16
Fife bhoy yes saw that "mind the gap" comment as well. Talk about making a ar$e of it 😆😆😆.

Leon Bhoy that's an interesting point you mention. What happened with Fiorentina? The new tennants at ibrokes are deluded 😂😂😂.

8.) 30 Dec 2018 19:01:09
Fiorentina went into liquidation and started up a new club called FLORENTINA and started in seria d.
Within 2 years they paid off all Fiorentina old debts.
The Italian f. a let them change back to Fiorentina and fast tracked them into seria a due to league reconstruction.
A question a have asked on here before is if sevco had 80 million would they pay off old debts and try bring back the old club if allowed ( which the sfa would) or spend the money on new players to try and stop 10 in a row.

9.) 31 Dec 2018 05:26:07
Leon Bhoy i never knew that about Fiorentina. Seems to be quite a lot of teams going bust across there.

I bet they would attempt to stop 10 in a row as by paying debts would be an admission of guilt regarding newco argument.

10.) 31 Dec 2018 08:45:11
So where does that put Pacific Shelf then?



10 Dec 2018 01:45:53
Been thinking about Scott Browns future at club. What a loyal servant and one of the best captains in our history he has been, thank you broony!

Im not trying to be all doom and gloom but with any player the day comes when its time to say goodbye and im struggling to think its this season Broony.

Hope i don't cause any offence by this post, just concerned with contract stuff as well. What a legend he will always be.


1.) 10 Dec 2018 03:50:48
Would be 1st name on team sheet against them at greyskull for me mate.

2.) 10 Dec 2018 07:15:02
No room for sentiment in football I'm afraid, a legend he is but it's best 11 everytime. 🎵 they gave us Johnstone, Tully, Murdoch, Auld and Hay🎵. They'll give us someone else👍.

Bhoys please don't be offended about any gibirish i post tonight. Was celebrating today and been onit since 1pm. Told boss to shove his job up his jacksy! Got Christmas sorted for the kids that's my main concern and hopefully back working soon doing anything.

Anyone who has inspirations to be a private hire taxi driver best advice, buy your own taxi and keep nose clean with booking office you choose and you will enjoy.

My problem i encountered is minute someone fires a few skodas on road they think they are suddenly a tycoon and think they can talk down on you like what happened here. Not all are like that majority are good people.

Apologies for rant just feel amazing happiest been in 12 years god bless you all.


1.) 13 Nov 2018 09:35:31
Monday night session oft. Big Bhoys stuff.

2.) 13 Nov 2018 12:15:12
Onwards and upwards Phil. I hope you and your family have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.



13 Nov 2018 00:39:18
Fair play to Livingston i've got to say. Their budget is not as big as some clubs in league so to compete they change tactics by operating a plastic pitch. Yes we all hate them but its aiding their bid for survival which is a smart decision on their behalf.

Its only a short term strategy as won't be long before clubs in league start practising once a week on these surfaces which I hope we do regarding away legs in europe. Im led to believe quite a lot of clubs in europe have these pitches and im probably wrong but most these pitches feel narrower to what we used to.

Its just an opinion but see if teams like Aberdeen, Tarts, Hibs could go for the kill home ties and have 9 players behind ball, coefficient ratings would go up, less qualifiers for us to play cause im sick of us carrying these teams in Europe. We do our bit and yet always seem to get crucified.




05 Oct 2018 03:44:31
Honestly thought we would of won game tonight. I know our record away in europe isn't the greatest but had a good feeling we would of got sonething. Ouch well that our hardest tie dealt with.

Forrest red card is annoying me, cause think its wrong decision hopefully gets overturned. Thought he was clever tonight, is it just me or did left sided player marking him look right footed? Forrest seemed to knock ball past players right side a few times during game.

If we had team at full fitness from last season i reckon we would of tore them apart. Something i noticed don't know about you bhoys was that they pushed their back line high a lot during game. If we had a striker that was pacy and good with long balls we would of smashed them.


1.) 05 Oct 2018 06:16:26
Smashed them, tore them apart and Forrest was clever! your surely at the wind up! Salzburg showed us up for what we are and that’s bang average! Done well for the first 2 min and that was it! Passing poor as per usual and no real belief that we would get something from that game. we've regressed badly as a team and it showed last nite. yes Salzburg are a good team but if u compare budgets wages fan base and club size then we are bigger than them. there's a major lack of self belief when we step on to that park on European nites by the way! Either in the CL or EL! But I’m not shocked in the slightest by the result or the way the game played out! Because it’s like Groundhog Day watchn us in Europe!

2.) 05 Oct 2018 06:22:31
Other teams buy quality mate whereas we sell ours always, I would prefer not be be in the Europa league anyway so we could focus solely on domestic matters this season and let’s be honest we’re never going to win it anyways with a defence like that, we would need to score about 4 goals per game but would still concede 5 anyways.

3.) 05 Oct 2018 06:28:37
If you compare budgets and wages they will be more.

4.) 05 Oct 2018 06:32:39
There’s no way theyr playin nearly 60 million a year on wages, no chance!

5.) 05 Oct 2018 08:05:49
Salzburg are a top quality side and one we should be modelling ourselves on. You will see some of their players get big moves to the top leagues in coming years.

6.) 05 Oct 2018 08:07:57
Combined value of Boyata, Hendry, Lustig and Gordon? . mabye 1 or 2 million? . then we wonder why we can’t defend, we signed Craig Gordon of sportscene.

7.) 05 Oct 2018 08:30:59
Well said Lh88. Unfortunately we have a team with very little quality in it. To be honest l am not surprised with the result. Teams in the Scottish league have found us out so it's not a surprise teams in Europe have. Once teams seem to press us we fold. The touch of some players is shocking and we couldn't seem to put 5 passes together before losing the ball. I know the defence gets belters and rightly so in some cases but what protection do they get in front of them. Mulumbu l thought have a great game and did everything he could. But both griffs and eddy were poor. Ok he took the goal super but their hold up play of the ball was shocking. Every time it went up it came back asap giving the defence no rest.

We pay huge wages, unbelievable support and stadium but unfortunately we do not have the quality. And every time l was Celtic in Europe it just looks more and more painful we are not up to the task.

8.) 05 Oct 2018 08:46:34
It's very hard to take, but we are a very average team when it comes to European competition. I remember the 60's team and then the famous 'road to Seville' with MON - and all the great players we had then and I know times were different etc etc.
However, we also had very lean years in the late 70's, 80's and obviously the 90's and although we are managing to appear regularly in Europe, I think we are nowhere near the level required to seriously compete - especially away from home .
We may have a very high annual wage bill in Scotland, but in the context of other countries and their top clubs - we are definitely the poor relations and we are getting less quality for our money.
The most frustrating thing about this particular period is the repetition of the same old, basic defending mistakes, the severe lack of confidence and fight when we lose a goal in any Euro game and the surrender of the tie and acceptance of defeat.
The players, manager and support can not be happy with this, but the board seem happy enough to plod on regardless of results, reputation and refusal to improve the team accordingly.

9.) 05 Oct 2018 09:40:10
spend some time on the training ground learning how to pass would be helpful. N.

10.) 05 Oct 2018 12:43:11
Totally outclassed. The reasons for that are obvious to everyone not blinded by Lawell love. Rogers signings have been in the most part woeful so here we are.
No one should be surprised. That’s the saddest thing of all.

We are and always have been a club led by penny pinching rubbishbags. Until that changes for the better we won’t move anywhere but sideways and backward. Just like our passing.

11.) 05 Oct 2018 13:26:20
I don't know what has went on since the end of the season but something must have by the end of last season it was so clear that we needed new players in but nothing happened at all WTF and now it's clear to everyone that the players are just going through a routine and not a good one at that and some players should not be on the park for Celtic but with no replacement we are forced to play them not good enough but saying all that we made 17 million profit last year so all is forgiven isn't it?

12.) 06 Oct 2018 00:20:29
Brendan had a double treble squad, value £84m Plus £9.8m for Odsonne Plus Christie returning and others.
AEK Athens has a £34m squad.
He should never have got beaten. He made immediate excuses about no summer signings. He didn’t show anyone the door mind you, which is his job.
He’s got 35 guys on the books and didn’t punt the duds to free up salaries.
The board must wonder just how much you need to give Brendan to buy him success.
Having a £90m squad in Scottish football is criminal. And clearly £34m gets some managers into CL group stages.

Theres no way he would leave during season. Loves club too much to do that. Also I think this is bull as media are trying their hardest to unsettle us.

Yesterday I noticed Daily person transfer centre online opening paragraph put celtic and rangers in order "rangers and celtic". Rule of thumb with grammar is to list items in alphabetical order, but when its comes to old firm supporters tend to mention their club first. Also we are the champions so it would make sense to mention us first. Point I'm making is, this is what we are up against with media. Total biast attitude against us, will print any crap in hope it unsettles us. Really want this league title more than stopping them getting 10 in a row.

JimTim i think Hendry just needs a good run of games. Think there is a player there and a loan spell will do him well.

Great post RodgersAtWork, SFA have been getting away with corruption for far too long. Really can't wait to run sevco off the park next derby. Here we go 10 in a row.
