Assuming Sinclair deal done then I think a creative midfielder and we are set with also a few out.
There is an argument for a GK but CG is decent enough and Fasan is considered good enough by many to step in if needed, so looking like a good window for us.
With a strike force of Sinclair LG MD and PR that will put smiles on our faces I think.
Also it means that the spine of the team has been strengthened which is what any good manager addresses.


1.) 05 Aug 2016 20:21:32
To me a GK is needed badly, also would like a tough tackling no nonsense midfielder brought in.

2.) 05 Aug 2016 21:11:57
Would you trust fasan or even Gordon in a cl game against quality opposition? I think over the next 2 season we need 2 new GK, but buy one now and put Gordon on the bench.

3.) 05 Aug 2016 21:27:17
Got to agree with chris30. Need a CM who isn't afriad to let himself be known. And btw, if not already know. Flamini was released by the Gunners on a free. 32y and still agressive as ever last i saw him.

4.) 05 Aug 2016 21:29:02
I think we get through this tie mate but I've no seen enough a Fasan and tbh I was never Craig Gordon biggest fan he's made a couple really good saves at times but he's prone to a howler at times its just in he's game still a tough one for me to take when you lose an England international goalkeeper ( England's number 1 in my opinion without being biased lol) and replace him way a guy that been out for some long, would like the lad Worm spurs number 2 no sure if it was Rodgers that signed him for Swansea.

5.) 05 Aug 2016 22:21:56
Rodgers said he wanted another CF i don't know whether that's still the case or not! But I'd love a GK and CM who can take a game by the scruff of the neck!

6.) 05 Aug 2016 23:19:06
Couldn't agree more with chris30 and shugmckie, a hard tackling ball winning midfielder. Flamini wouldn't be the worst shout. There after I think we need a commanding goalie, Gordon is a half decent shot stopper, however is not commanding.

7.) 06 Aug 2016 03:00:34
Bring back the Holy Goalie ;)

8.) 06 Aug 2016 07:12:07
I rather we got an up and coming someone, don't know anything about Sinclair, apart from what I've read, but his career seems to be going in opposite direction.

9.) 06 Aug 2016 08:22:53
the holy goalie was hot and cold also. Remember Begovic goal blunder he was on the other end. Countless times he fluffed it at Celtic also. What about Logan Bailly he was a decent enough keeper I though over Fasan.

10.) 06 Aug 2016 10:16:36
A GK is THE priority now.

Well done Celtic a very easy game.
That's some manager sevco have got, to watch Scott Brown dominate and stroll thro the 90 without doing anything about it lol.
Regarding Halliday challenge I thought it was a yellow, very similar to Browns last week where they both went in to take the other guy out no damage done its a yellow.
MOTM for me was Craig Gordon, to spend 80 odd mins bored to tears takes a lot of ability and he coped admirably.
It seems to me the sevco manager is as daft as his fans, they win a couple against mediocre teams and they come into this game full of confidence thinkin they can win against top quality opposition.
Well reality has hit big time and I think we wernt even out of 2nd gear.


1.) 23 Apr 2017 16:55:53
Their best chance of a win today was the half-time "Dizzy Penalties" competition, but they blew that as well!

2.) 23 Apr 2017 17:24:00
cant agree rayman hallidays was def red . the young right back should have had 2 yellows . browns challenge last week was for me like taverniers on griff for penalty yellow ( bit late in timing ) but never red.

3.) 23 Apr 2017 17:41:32
Still paranoid enough to believe the colour of the cards is determined by the colour of the strips - and nothing today or last week has prompted me to change that view.

4.) 23 Apr 2017 17:56:17
browns was a red. hallidays was a red. both shockers. not place in the game for tackles like that anymore

will be good now over the next few weeks to see kouassi get a game and also good that griff is going to get game time.

5.) 23 Apr 2017 18:17:18
We will Gub them next week the Gap is enormous.

6.) 23 Apr 2017 18:18:28
Scott Brown was the best player on the park today by the length of an Airdrie Walk. His best season in a Celtic jersey under Rodgers.

7.) 24 Apr 2017 00:45:06
Hallidays was a definite red no surprises from that guy. Beerman should've had a 2nd yellow too and isn't Tavernier last man? Remember Boyatas red card I think was against Hamilton. And the guy was offside for that too and Boyata got the ball, still the appeal was thrown out. Sick of hearing that we get all the decisions and when we don't it is a conspiracy from other clubs fans. These decisions couldn't be any more blatant.



21 Apr 2017 19:39:49
Hi ed hope you are well, I not one for conspiracies regarding refs but was having a debate with friends about conclusive proof regarding refs SFA etc.
We all know about the Cadete incident we also know about Dougie McDonald conspired with officials etc, and we also know a ref (cant remember his name) asked to officiate a Rangers game for his last game and lo and behold as the game was drawing there was something like 6-7 mins of added time before the days of added time.
These are cases where there is conclusive proof of an agenda.
And that's the ones I only know about there may be others.
But my question is there any out there where there is an agenda to help Celtic?
To my knowledge there isn't but I willing to be corrected.


{Ed007's Note - Having refs in Celtic's pocket? That's small fry for us, Raymundo. Haven't you heard of State Aid, the Unseen Fenian Hand or the gold, oil and diamond seams under all the land we've ever bought on the cheap from our old friends in Glasgow City Council - which has been infiltrated by Opus Dei after orders from the Vaitican to aid Celtic any way they can.


Oh and then there's that wee nasty anti-Royalist Republican Nicola Sturgeon and her Irish Republican sympathising party who are planning to expand the Glasgow Subway which will likely include a new station in Parkhead.

As wee Fergus said back in '94,

"As Celtic fans we can be proud of ourselves and what we have achieved in our lives because what we have achieved has been achieved on our own merits. We haven’t had to join any secret organisation to get to where we are today and that’s important to you."

1.) 21 Apr 2017 21:45:52
Your theory is of gold n diamonds? Is it truly believable?
Not as far fetch as the news reported on sly who just said we gave away a dubious penalty against last week! Gave away? Eh excuse me but the player dived! There was no challenge and the ref and linesman seen something that never happened! Sorry for the rant guys.

{Ed007's Note - Dodgy referees come and go but remember that diamonds are forever.}

2.) 21 Apr 2017 22:33:08
Bent refs! I remember a top official brought his own towel to paradise because he didn't like the green one supplied. Hey there is money saver for newco officials to bring their own towels, soap, hair gel £5.00 saved on laundry bills.



18 Mar 2017 16:33:39
It may not be popular but I can't help but be impressed with Shay Logan, always consistent and never seems to have a bad game.


1.) 18 Mar 2017 17:12:41
No for me ray got to look higher than him plus he's a nob.

2.) 18 Mar 2017 16:59:24
Nope not for me, don't rate him and he looks a rite f@nny!

3.) 18 Mar 2017 19:39:20
He's consistently good for Aberdeen but he's not the type of player we need to take us up a level. Plus a lot of our fans seem to dislike him after the Tonev incident.

4.) 18 Mar 2017 21:01:43
Is shay Logan only a knob because he supposedly got racially abused, or is there another reason?

5.) 18 Mar 2017 21:47:33
id taks him aswell rayman boys no a bad player at all.

{Ed007's Note - So sign a 29 year old mediocre RB and then what? Sell Lustig who has just signed a new 2 year deal or sell Gamboa who is 2 years younger than - and a far better player than - Logan who's not even been here a year?
Tony Ralston in the Development squad is pushing for a first team chance and there's also Sam Wardrop and Josh Kerr who I'd rather give a chance than sign Logan.
The only player in Scottish football we should be thinking of signing is John McGinn from Hibs.}

6.) 18 Mar 2017 23:06:13
Agree with the McGinn comment from 007 thought we should have taken him when he left st Mirren remember him being a standout player for them and gave Scot Brown a torrid time have not seen him play for Hibs though.

{Ed007's Note - My mate that scouts for Accies has watched him a lot more than me over the years and said the same as you, D, we should have signed him from St Mirren. I've only watched a few Hibs games this season but he always looks the part and works his socks off.
I know that's still Championship level but we would - and have - happily send our youngsters to Hibs on loan so why not take a punt on him? He'd fit into that wee 'clique' of young Scots besides the likes of Tierney, Armstrong, Henderson, McGregor even Forrest and he would be more than capable of playing in any domestic games for us.}

7.) 18 Mar 2017 23:11:28
We still have Janko on the books as well, but doesn't seem to be featuring much for Barnsley.

{Ed007's Note - I forgot about him! I can't seeing him having any future with us but he's still only 21 and got a couple of years on his contract. Maybe a move to Nottingham Forest for a couple of million? ;)

8.) 19 Mar 2017 08:51:02
Only player I would have from Scotland is patterson from hearts.
I rate him.
Good defender and is dangerous going forward. Reminds me of Lustig and I think he will develop into a right good player if his next move is the right one.

9.) 19 Mar 2017 10:20:23
Agree witb ed the bhoy ralston could turn out a player for us if he's given a chance and my opinion of logan is purely based on ability and character nothing to do with the racist comments but again he's a knob.

10.) 19 Mar 2017 17:10:43
Don't think I would sign Logan just like the look of him didn't realise he's 29.
Just think we need an improvement on Lustig.
If u look at the left hand side KT is always backing Sinky up ad overlapping and are a good partnership and this is our best attacking option.

Right hand side while Lustig is a good defender he seems to let Forrest go and not back him up, there is very little interplay between them.
Just think a more athletic younger right back might be needed.



12 Mar 2017 17:31:48
Not got much to say about today really apart from well done Craig Gordon.




08 Mar 2017 17:15:20
Wud be interesting to know your thoughts guys on the Arsenal game last night where Konscielny is yellow carded by the ref and then red carded for same incident.
I wudnt have thought a ref could do that as he clearly seen the incident and wudnt need advised by other officials.
The ref already made his decision and it didn't look a red.
Can u imagine that happening on sunday lol.
Incidentally ed, what are the eds down south saying about a 10-2 gubbing, if that had been us the English would be making a laffing stock of us.


{Ed007's Note - They found it pretty funny too, none of them are Arsenal supporters.}

1.) 08 Mar 2017 20:41:21
I thought the way the rules had changed meant if you gave away a penalty you wouldn't b sent off as well, unless it was completely deliberate or violent conduct.

2.) 08 Mar 2017 23:41:34
Rayman, did you hear Martin keown giving it all how it should have been a penalty? Never a penalty in a million years, u can't seriously give penalties where u win the ball first n catch a man, even slightly secondly.
Keown I can't take, awful player n all I ever remember of him was that bouncing about in ruuds face against united n barging him, clown. His pain was evident as the goals flowed haha.

So much for the greatest league in the world, 10 2 was a complete embarrassment for the so called footballing team from England, albeit pep is trying, we were more than a match for them, to get city playing that so called Barcelona football.

Its too easy to say he would have done this or that, the fact is he didn't.
He was never a goalscorer and people are forgetting the sitters he missed.

Point is simple ed, SA or SJ its SA for me all day long.
SJ didn't play CAM all that often it was a makeshift postion for him just like it is for SA.
SJ for me is a DM player like he is for his country.


{Ed007's Note - This is just pointless, try actually watching games.}

01 Mar 2017 22:32:55
He hasn't ed its a slightly different role tho same as SJ who didn't play it either.
Both play similar but its Armstrong for me all day long.


{Ed007's Note - So where did Johansen play in Ronny Deila's 4-2-3-1? You're comparing players that play in different positions, Armstrong is nothing to do with it and I've explained why - this is up there with people that want to play Tierney at LW.
I really can't see the point you're trying to make.
Celtic playing 4-2-3-1 with Brown and Armstrong as the 2, with Johansen playing as CAM role COULD have potentially been better than having to play 4-3-3 with Bitton in beside Brown and Armstrong. I think Johansen's energy could have been useful and I think Rodgers would have got him back to playing the way he was in his first year and if he did he wouldn't have been any threat to Armstrong's position in the team, Armstrong's competition comes from Bitton, Johansen would have been competing with Rogic for a starting spot.}

01 Mar 2017 19:34:01
No he doesn't ed but he is BR 1st choice in that position when Rogic injured.
SJ for me didn't score enough to play that position (a discussion I had with a few here with the Commons v SJ debate. ) SJ also had the silly habit of making rash challenges and getting booked needlessly.
Armstrong is much more reliable.
I really believe it will be Brown, Armstrong, Eboue. 2 from 3 and BR will buy a No 10.


{Ed007's Note - When has Armstrong played in Rogic's position, in the middle of the attacking 3? People seem to say that yet it's simply not true, Stuart Armstrong is not a CAM and without Rogic we've mostly been playing in a 4-3-3.}



Click To View This Thread

01 Mar 2017 13:53:43
Ed, Armstrong is a better player than SJ.


{Ed007's Note - Armstrong doesn't play as a CAM though. And Johansen would have been a better player than Bitton. Having a midfield 3 of Brown, Johansen, Armstrong would be better than having Bitton in there as has been happening the past couple of matches when we've played more a 4-3-3. Then when we do play 4-2-3-1 Brown and Armstrong are the two anchors and Johansen would have been in the CAM of the 3 seeing as Rogic is out injured again.}

Was discussing exactly this the other day I think he is a great manager.
I think he has a great team and its going to be very difficult to improve, cos if u go thro the team it will be very difficult to improve a position without spending 40-50m on a player.
Goalie maybe but they have a strong defense, midfield with Vic and Dembelle are superb and try and replace Delle Ali and Kane its near impossible.
I would stick with what he got they are still improving and they will be there or thereabouts this and next season.
Their only concern is the others will be spending 100s of millions.

Jim, Peter Grant himself said he cudnt believe the mentality down south of some teams.
At celtic you were under pressure to win EVERY game, but at the clubs he was at they could lose a couple, draw a couple and it was ok.
Its so much easier for players to play under less pressure, that's why some players can't cope in Glasgow mate even tho they good players.
They can't cope with the constant pressure to win.
