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.

Wondered about your opinion about the worst ref decision you ever saw since we have seen some howlers recently.

Mine is the Mottram 1 where I think Dundee Utd scored, hit the stansion came out and a Thistle player picked the ball up as he assumed a goal (obv) and gave it to his keeper and Mottram said play on lol. Couldn't make it up but its true and I sure many will remember it.

What's yours guys?

Incidentally did Mottram ever give his reasoning for this?


1.) 07 Feb 2017 20:38:38
The Doyle incident where ref was hit with ball has to be the worst.

2.) 07 Feb 2017 22:04:57
too many to choose from.

3.) 07 Feb 2017 22:08:16
Remember it well at the match that day pure accident. Refs pride hurt only reason Johnny sent off.

4.) 07 Feb 2017 22:52:02
Not going to be a popular choice but I remember being astounded when gasgoine was booked for returning the refs yellow card that he dropped, pretending to book the referee.

5.) 07 Feb 2017 23:05:21
Paddy Connolly was the scorer of that "Goal" rayman as I remember! Incredible decision.

6.) 08 Feb 2017 00:46:02
Syme sending off the Shepherd instead of judas.

7.) 08 Feb 2017 19:35:29
AG I Remember the Gazza one. ridiculous decision and ref should have been pulled up. Football is part of the entertainment industry and Gazza, even in wrong colours, was entertaining in his day.

8.) 09 Feb 2017 11:08:55
The thumbs down brigade are having a good night. C'mon, at least say why you don't agree.



09 Dec 2016 19:22:36
Guys I always listen to the phone in (I know I know) but its an addiction lol and I always in the car at that time.
Anyway to my point, for years-decades even I hear the term "its all about the Rangers".
Well on clyde this week and last few weeks there has been plenty of their fans on and about 99% of them all they wanted to talk about was Celtic .
Its been Rodgers will be off soon etc etc.
Celtic were poor in CL.
Celtic will never spend money.
Dembele is not worth 20M.
Broonie cudnt cut it in CL.
The list goes on.
All very laffable and I get loads of fun listening to them.
So once again guys just remember "its all about the ranger
You cudnt make it up lol.




28 Nov 2016 19:41:37
Well done the hoops on the first part of the treble.
But guys, ed, I don't know about u guys but I have been besieged by our friends (loosely) across the city today about how they (Aberdeen) lay down to us.
Its actually quite laffable cheats accusing others of cheating, I don't know any pro player who would not try his best in ANY game no matter the opposition.
Also not so long ago McInness was being touted for their manager, now he is a cheat.
Make your mind up lol.
They confuse themselves they really do.
Another part was how crap Aberdeem are, now that they are 2nd in the league.
This statement is beyond laffable as they are only 2nd due to Aberdeen having no league fixture.
So if the mob across the road had no fixture at the weekend they would be looking up at Aberdeen whilst telling us how crap they are.
Ed I beg u give me strength it can't just be the schools lol.


1.) 28 Nov 2016 19:58:17
rayman99: been getting that as well mate, but to be honest its how we played and not Aberdeen. We never let them play yesterday, so the huns think the sheep just lay down.


2.) 28 Nov 2016 21:18:40
Like when they fannies 'lay down' when we gubbed them 5-1. Just tell them to take a 'shut-up pill' like I did with my sevco associates.



05 Nov 2016 21:04:10
Has Armstrong found his position?


1.) 05 Nov 2016 22:01:37
Certainly has ray pity Ronnie couldny see it.

2.) 05 Nov 2016 22:30:04
Wasn't at the game today, was Armstrong as impressive as Brendan suggested. We all know what happened to the last Scottish player given the Cafu tag.

3.) 06 Nov 2016 00:35:11
right back? You're having a larf!

4.) 06 Nov 2016 01:30:52
Jeezo mallythetally when are you and others going to give it a rest with the Ronny bashing you think it was some master stroke by Brendan to put Armstrong at right back it was luck pure and simple he didn't have anyone else to go in there and it happened to work out end of.

5.) 06 Nov 2016 11:37:27
RD was not without his criticisms, but there were some ridiculous ones. Not playing SA at RB has to be up there with the worst.

6.) 06 Nov 2016 14:38:55
Big D, Gamboa was on the bench so he had plenty of options.

7.) 06 Nov 2016 15:39:21
Your right rayman but he needed to bring on izzy on the left to go from a 3 to a 4 at the back and probably didn't want to use 2 subs so early and threw Armstrong in there as an experiment and he got lucky maybe it could be a good position for him but for people on here to criticize Ronny for not doing it is a complete joke of a statement.

8.) 06 Nov 2016 18:46:05
Bigd yer awfy sensitive am stating the obvious SA is a central midfielder all day long, he's right footed for a start and has a tremendous engine so rb was Always an option, no Ronnie bashing just stating the obvious although baffling how Rd couldn't see it.

9.) 06 Nov 2016 19:05:42
Reminds me of when we where forced to put Joe ledley at left back for a few games as big d says it isn't a master stroke more just being able to rely on someone more than just luck imo.

10.) 10 Nov 2016 15:50:37
Armstrong is in a good place just now . Mentally and physically he is at about his peak . He is so tuned in just now and so eager to please he will do his best where ever he is asked to play .
Maybe a few short months ago he thought his Celtic future was in doubt, but he is certainly not going without a fight.



03 Oct 2016 20:22:27
Interesting to hear Scott Brown's views on our previous manager today. Confirms everything I thought about him.


1.) 03 Oct 2016 22:23:37
Whether Scot Brown is telling the truth or not, I have to say Brown has gone down in my estimation . What value is there in Brown raking up about last season's manager. I am sure if R D wasn't as big a gentleman as he, he could write things that wouldn't show. S Brown in good light . It is in the interest of our great club to keep in house what happens on the training pitch and in the dressing room.

2.) 03 Oct 2016 22:28:25
What did he say?, was it something like 'our previous manager was a very nice guy, a very good nutritionist, a very good motivational speaker for businessmen who have lost their reason to continue, but as a football manager, he was on a par with super salary'

3.) 03 Oct 2016 23:27:40
Thought his comments were a bit unfair to be honest! I was in no way a fan of RD but it achieves nothing having a go at the guy now he's long gone! I seem to remember he stuck up for brown on more than one occasion when fans and media alike were saying he was a spent force! Everybody is entitled to there opinion but don't think comin out with this after publicly backing the guy last year achieves anything.

4.) 03 Oct 2016 23:51:41
Rayman, Scott Brown was referring to training, you never once mentioned anything regarding Deila and training. You did mention diets though.

5.) 04 Oct 2016 08:00:13
never slandered RD, he said training was mince,

6.) 04 Oct 2016 09:26:39
What is it Scott Brown has confirmed exactly?

7.) 04 Oct 2016 14:39:26
He said training was not hard enough what's wrong with that it's his opinion and after watching us the last 2 years he's got a point.

8.) 04 Oct 2016 15:19:33
I sure I did mention diets DN but not very often, tho I sure I mentioned fitness many many times, which I ridiculed at the time as that's all RD was going on about.

ANY manager that comes in and mentions fitness is not good enough, is just having a go at the previous manager. Its a cheap shot and told me everything I needed to know about him.

The great RD was telling us how he revolutionised the fitness/ diets/ sports science etc, the only thing was it was pretty obvious on the pitch it made no difference, or in my opinion it went backwards. Scott Brown seems to agree with me.

9.) 04 Oct 2016 15:29:43
I would give brown more credit if he opened his mouth a year ago. It's typical of all footballers they rarely say anything bad at the time but wait till he's gone. personally I'd ban all footballers from opening their mouths till they aren't at the club as they are usually hypocrites sucking up to the current manager then saying things weren't good later.

10.) 04 Oct 2016 15:49:13
God forbid our captain giving his opinion lol.

If he gives a corporate answer he will be criticised and if he gives his opinion he will be criticised!

You can't win!

In fairness to him he's not said anything that wasn't glaringly obvious.

11.) 04 Oct 2016 19:04:21
God forbade a captain doing what his job is, having a quiet word with the manager that he feels the training isn't right .
That's what a good captain would do. If I was B R I would think of getting a new captain right away . Once an airer of grievance in public, always .
BR knows now he cannot trust Brown, who when the time suits him, will shop him too.

12.) 04 Oct 2016 20:15:27
I've not seen the comments made by Scott Brown, but if he's asked his opinion on how things are done this year compared to last, wouldn't he be undermining the current manager if he didn't say that things are done better?, I mean the vast majority of supporters can see that the way that we are playing that the players are enjoying the current methods far more.
I would far rather players and managers give honest opinions when interviewed, otherwise you end up with the likes of Warburton who after a 5-1 defeat says there was nothing between the teams, and that he wouldn't want any Celtic player in his team.
That really is taking the supporters for mugs.

13.) 04 Oct 2016 20:16:25
old bhoy you talk some dross, if the man is asked a question why should he not answer it honestly, how do you know he did not have a quiet word with the manager, as for getting a new captain laughable.

14.) 04 Oct 2016 20:30:56
have we learned nothing from Barton

do your talking on the pitch.

15.) 04 Oct 2016 21:18:33
Tambhoythefirst the first duty of any captain or Manager of a team is to keep all bad situations within house . Some may remember a distress looking Scot Brown sitting on the footpath& certainly not giving the image of a professional footballer . The very next day R D was surrounded by the MSSM looking for blood as well as the gory details of Brown's late night arseing around . R D could easily have done Brown's career serious damage if he given full details of what Brown 's behaviour with only a few wee details added. But R D was and is a gentleman local to Celtic so he swept the whole incident under the table and praised Brown's loyalty and dedication to his football to the highest .
He did that, because of the type of man R D is and because it was the correct thing to do.

16.) 04 Oct 2016 21:49:45
Old Bhoy, your argument falls flats on it's face because Brown never bad mouthed Deila whilst he was in charge.
Are you seriously saying that no player should ever speak about how a previous manager ran things.
why should supporters not have the opportunity to know a little of what goes on at their club?, fans aren't naïve enough to believe that everything is always sweetness and light behind the scenes.

17.) 04 Oct 2016 23:21:01
Oldbhoy, praise him praise him, you were always Ronnies biggest cheerleader, the one praising the emperors new clothes.

18.) 05 Oct 2016 00:00:32
Oldbhoy at NO time did Brown slate Delia he stated that he beleived the training was not the best, now you can blame that on delia or Collins whose job it was to tell the manager his training schedule wasnt working, for you to bring up brown's behaviour is a joke, remember the old saying let he who is without sin cast the first stone. As for loyalty if my memory serve's me Brown was the first to back delia up when he was getting slaughtered in the press.

19.) 05 Oct 2016 07:55:00
Haha old bhoy, you are hilarious.

Your a man in a world filled with soup with only a fork!

20.) 05 Oct 2016 08:32:08
Let's put this into context all he said was the training wasn't hard enough and some want him banished.

21.) 05 Oct 2016 11:15:06
We all in someway made comments about the coaching and Board, including including including n n certain senior players. Not in public however why not not not any more ammo to the jokers who call themselves journalists. And by making our concerns known we exacted Change. That was the point. Now for him to comment is not a huge shock or disappointment. RD was a nice guy by all accounts but proved to be totally outwith his comfort zone in what is one of the most famous football clubs in the world. HH.

22.) 05 Oct 2016 11:27:24
Jim I sure if u went into work tomorrowz and told your boss he was useless and he knew nothing about his job, u wouldn't be there long. Brown is only saying what we could all see on the pitch.

There is a huge difference between the football we are now seeing compared to last season, results help of course with confidence, but BR has identified areas of concern and is doing something about it. Where as RD was telling us how good we were and and quite clearly we were rubbish.

23.) 08 Oct 2016 13:40:22
Brendan has been allowed to bring in a class of player that has elevated us, dembele n sinclair, toure has added good pedigree, experience n is a good pro from what I've read.
Rd was given too much gash to work with, the operative words being given i. e. Lawell park controlling transfers n gash as in ciftci kazim, carlton Cole, need I go on, as well as lawell ensuring commons got a new contract, Rd didn't want him n now that brendan doesn't either that's ok. Rd wasn't given a choice as to who left n who came in but brendan does that's a big change n the added quality player means those who got a game despite not being good enough or caused problems now knew their jackets were on a shoogly let n that clique has now been disbanded. By the way under Rd 4231 wasn't good enough n yet brendan has played it quite often n everyones great with that, what a fickle bunch. Old bhoy commented on the formation in a previous post.
As for the training not being hard under Rd or fitness not being there, under Lennon our loan players were all told they were nowhere near fit by the clubs they went on loan to, not by Rd but by the clubs themselves.
Our players were fitter under Rd as well, n as ed007 pointed out to many of u before about how commons n his bum chums getting their knickers in a twist when johansen went in a bit robust on wee kt. Too hard for some it would appear, if Rd had been allowed to get rid of mulgrew, commons, Forrest as he was the 1 who refused a pretty decent contract offer n has barely done anything of note in the last 4 odd years, as well as no ciftci, kazim, file etc n bring in his own players, elynouusi, Ajer, dembele (as he said himself we were looking at him in January) then we would have been in a much better position under Rd than the crap he was given n left with.
As for broony, most will know I back him to the hilt on here nfeelhis form is getting back to his best but I tell u this, Caesar, big roy, Davie hay, johnny doyle, tb, etc would not have allowed anybody to get away with undermining not just the manager but the club n the fans with their complete unprofessionalism n bawbagness n would have knocked that crap out of them which I felt broony should have done more of, despite his aversion to john Collins, he did seem to get on either however, n for me the football club is the most important thing, petty issues should be left at the door or u move on.
This isn't just do some crappy job or average football team, this is the mighty Glasgow Celtic n for me the players should be running through brick walls for the jersey, for the club n for the fans. In essence they would then be working hard for the man in charge, that's the bare minimum I expect, if u don't want to do it then bog off to some other average fitba team, u play for celtic u should know it's a privilege n u should give 100% as I'd run through brick walls for my team no matter what.
As for rd's biggest lover aindoh, on a level with salary McCoist, that just shows how clueless u r, remind he how many actual trophies salary won n how many did Rd win? think ul find that would be 3 nil to Rd as only major trophies count, nobody counts the lower league trophies unless your a sevconian. N to even come out with that comment when Rd was cheated, n we all know that's a fact, out of a treble in his 1st season n pretty much the same in the 2nd season, everyone knows that so close to trebles in both seasons n yet apparently he didn't know what he's doing, all with a lesser class of player than Brendan has been given. Brendan better ensure he does trebles this n next season as by some folks standards anything less ain't good enough. And just for the record I'm 100% behind brendan, as I was Rd, lenny Strachan O'Neill n every other manager of celtic, we don't turn on our own which is a sevco trait anyway.
The fans have shown how big a part they play, especially at home when it can be most needed in the league, away games the fans r always superb n I think the fans need to get back to backing the team through thick n thin, we are Celtic supporters faithful through n through, apparently some only r when they want to be, me I was there backing the team every home game under Rd while others simply didn't show up or chose to boo players or the team, u wouldn't think we won 3 trophies under Rd the way some go on.

Seems to me ed 001 has been shown up for what he is, a bitter Liverpool supporter. USED to be team of credibility but just bit part players now in the self proclaimed best league in the world. Not even in top 4 in my estimation going by CL form and you can't even get in that with your 100 of millions.


{Ed001's Note - seriously, you lot are so busy embarrassing yourself fawning over Bodgers that you are missing the fact he was the one who left Liverpool in such a mess. With that stupid cringeworthy banner to a manager who has a career of winning nothing, yet you all fall over yourself verbally masturbating over his greatness because he once came second in a one horse race in the league you are all so bitterly trying to pretend is crap. You lot are just making yourselves look ridiculous. Bodgers failed massively and you are all talking about the crap Liverpool are in and yet none of you are bright enought to notice that it was Bodgers that put Liverpool in the crap by spending over 250m on dross. Still dross is the level you are at, worshipping donkeys that can't make it at League One level down south, so I guess he will clean up in Scotland. Mind your last manager managed that much and none of you would even give him a chance, so you get what you deserve if he screws up your club too.}

Yea how did that final go ed, just like the others Klopp has took you to. So how is it all down to Suarez, doesn't the manager get the credit for getting the best out of him. doesn't the manager get the credit for setting the team up to nearly win a league. If u would rather focus on the negatives that's down to you. let's see how Klopp does before proclaiming him the messiah.
As for intelligent comments ed, YOU are the 1 insulting so that's not the most intelligent thing.
I will let u do that as I would rather offer an opinion.


{Ed001's Note - yawn. I am not the one claiming someone is a messiah, with a cringeworthy banner...... You really should learn to think before you type.}

Tick I never said he was as good as Forster I was comparing them at the highest level (where they should be judged) in the CL.
My point is 7-0 nil against Barcelona and the players get away with it when some had shockers. God forbid if CG was in goal then eh lol.

By the way did u know CG was rated best GK when he was down there and voted best save ever, an accolade Forster yet to achieve.
Forster was good but for his size was terrible at crosses similar to CG to some on here.

Shot stopping both excellent and ball at their feet I would a said similar but CG is better now in my opinion.
So not much between them mate.

As for BMG game we were rotten but CG had a good game .
Can u imagine the fallout if CG had the nightmare and the outfield players were good and we lost.

Just put some balance on it that's all I ask mate.
Its just too easy criticise him for some on here, can't figure why when he cost us nothing. If Jozo or Armstrong cost us nothing we would be raving about them.

15 Feb 2017 11:11:59
yes i am comparing him to Forster they went to Epl for similar money. Arguably done aswell as him when he was down there when fit.
Lets compare Europe aswell, CL the highest level.

Only tanking we took was against Barcelona 7-0 he wasn't in goal
but no mention of other players in that game. Why?
BMG was not good but that was down to outfield players not performing, we were poor that night but not CG. No mention of Sinclair sitter or Toure gifting the goals and CG saving us from a drubbing.

Did well every other CL game where is the problem.
How come CG gets it but other who were very poor in these games get excused?

Just on to defend Gordon (I know ed) , as most say they want a new GK.
Lets look at this practically, he cost us nothing and the manager wants him on a new deal. It says a lot that our manager who we all trust wants him on a new deal considering he wanted him replaced.

For me this means BR has seen improvement in him.
Yes he has made the odd mistake but tell me a keeper who doesn't.
I seen Courtois, Hart, Forster, Bravo and even DeGea make mistakes recently and they would all cost north of 20 m probably.

No chance of us buying that quality and I think Gordon wudnt look out of place in that company, Chelsea making a move in Jan confirms they think he quality.
His medical record is something that people use to batter him with, well he fit to play and I sure our manager wudnt have him anywhere near 1st team if he wasn't.

He has played more games than Rogic and Jozo and people rave about them at times despite their suspect injuries and it never gets mentioned.
So give the guy a break and tell me where u would find a better GK for nothing.
