The UEFA president has denied speculation that if the leagues are not finished by June 30th that UEFA will demand the leaders be declared Champions.
Spineless UEFA could leave it to the Sfa/ Spfl to decide the outcome. Not Good.

Buzz Bomb

Eufa can't declare anyone champions, they can say the team that was at the top of the league, when the league was unfinished, if that is what happens, will be that countries representative in the champions League, Eufa rule 43, subsection 11, paragraph 6b.

2.) 24 Mar 2020 23:18:33
I don’t understand what you mean. I can’t find the rule book for domestic leagues.
Are you saying UEFA will leave it up to the Sfa?
It could depend on what country the league leaders play in if they will be declared champions. When Partizan Belgrade were declared Champions in 1999 it was a joint decision from UEFA and the Yugoslavian FA.
I don’t think it will come down to a decision because I think the outstanding games will be played at some stage.

3.) 29 Mar 2020 00:38:34
SFA will do anything to keep slippy for one more season. Null and void but pay them for finishing second without acknowledging we won 9 in a row. Still want to qualify for Europe. but no real league positions as null etc. but you know they want all the good without the reality. Oh and Celtic didn't win the league either so not 9 in a row. helps slippy's cv

So Sevco say "pay us for 2nd and allow us to be in Europe for this honour". " Deny Celtic Title for the same but pay them for being winners anyway.



10 Mar 2020 06:51:23
I think Lenny will play the 3-5-2 on Sunday and let the players express themselves with the gap putting all of the pressure onto our rivals. The team picks itself except both wing back positions. He will need to decide between Forrest, Frimpong or Elhamad on the right and on the left between Taylor or Hayes.
Personally l wouldn’t have a problem which 2 players out of the 5 he decides to play. All 5 players are capable of doing a job. Another beautiful Sunday awaits.

Buzz Bomb

1.) 10 Mar 2020 11:34:26
I wouldn't want o rely on frimpong defensively going forward no probs but elhamed is a shout but James will definitely start.

2.) 10 Mar 2020 11:45:31
Regarding Sunday Lennon has to play both Edouard and Griffiths, their defence won’t be able to cope with both of them. Please Lenny play both of them and we will win comfortably.

3.) 10 Mar 2020 12:32:00
The best thing to happen was for Griffiths to score a hat trick against St. Mirren. That should make the decision to play the 3-5-2 easy for the manager. If he plays that formation and we still get beat then the criticism will be minimal.
I hope you are feeling better oldkilly. 👍.

4.) 10 Mar 2020 13:56:59
I’m doing great Buzz Bomb thank you, a victory on Sunday and I will be jumping up and down knee replacement or not.

5.) 10 Mar 2020 14:03:01
Elhamed for me we frimpong still rusty caught out to much. Two upfront for me lads. Go right at them. They will be hoping for a counter attack. So we have to be wary of that.

6.) 10 Mar 2020 15:07:14
Ntcham or Christie

7.) 10 Mar 2020 16:12:24
Too soon for Elhamed I think. 352 with Forrest and Taylor. Biggest debate for me is the midfield. Does Rogic deserve a place?

8.) 10 Mar 2020 17:10:56
I wouldn’t play Rogic on Sunday. He is too slow.

9.) 10 Mar 2020 18:22:32
No rogic for me either, goes missing too often against them. I'd play ntcham, mcgregor and brown.

10.) 10 Mar 2020 20:16:52
Would rather have Christie than Ntcham. Rogic I'm not sure. He does love a goal against them.

11.) 10 Mar 2020 18:06:59
Will ntcham be fit for Sunday? I think rogic has been playing well the last few games but Christie is more energetic in that no10 role. Not sure what Lenny will do.
Ed what would your starting 11?

{Ed007's Note -


12.) 10 Mar 2020 23:17:11
Elhammed bitton jullien
Forrest brown rogic mcgreggor hayes
Griffiths Edouard.

13.) 11 Mar 2020 09:57:40
Same as Ed's except el hamed for biton.

14.) 11 Mar 2020 14:46:04
Is ajer injured?

15.) 12 Mar 2020 21:51:23
I would have Christie instead of Brown.

There is a storm coming to Britain on Saturday night into Sunday. The Clyde game must be at risk because the Celtic SLO has announced if the Clyde game is postponed then it will be played on Wednesday night. That would mean the Hearts league game would need to be rearranged.

The storm is already here. It's called our attacking play.

One way or another Celtic will win the league and leaked reports mentioned the Scottish cup will be played to a finish at some stage. Which means we will still get the chance of a Quadruple Treble.
It got me thinking about how cool it would be for Celtic to win all domestic honours for 5 seasons in a row.
Sevco are displaying the 5 tainted stars from Rangers. It looks silly for obvious reasons especially since Celtic have won 50 legitimate titles.
I think there will be only one cup competition next season to add to 10 in a row. It would still mean Celtic will have won every domestic honour for 5 seasons in a row.
Does anyone think that would be enough for the tribute act to take away the silly tainted 5 stars or will they wait until Celtic have won their 60th title?

Buzz Bomb

1.) 04 Apr 2020 17:00:53
Still don’t understand why our titles are tainted yet signing players on wages they can’t afford through tax cheating loans is classed as genuine titles?

2.) 04 Apr 2020 21:34:18
It's not their fault evolution passed them by.



03 Apr 2020 16:19:13
In a couple of weeks time it will be 4 years since Celtic last lost a domestic cup game. So the BBC are tonight showing a Celtic defeat to Dundee Utd in the 1981 Scottish cup semi final to remind fans in Scotland what it actually looks like for Celtic to lose a cup game.
Incidentally Celtic have met Dundee Utd 11 different years in the Scottish cup since that defeat in 1981 and Celtic have triumphed every single time. Six of those games have also been at Hampden,3 Semi finals and 3 Finals and Celtic won the lot.
Dundee Utd won their first Scottish cup in 1994 when they defeated Rangers who were going for a double treble but bottled it at the last hurdle.
Including that superb day for Dundee Utd they have beaten both Rangers / Sevco combined 6 times in a row in Scottish cup ties since 1994.Maybe that’s one of the reasons they hate Dundee Utd as much.

Buzz Bomb

1.) 03 Apr 2020 17:59:25
Buzz they hate everyone not just Utd, its their hatred that defines them.

2.) 03 Apr 2020 18:08:27
@Buzz Bomb it gets better, the dear old "unbiased" BBC have scoured their archives and on Sunday's Sportcene are showing the old club actually WINNING a cup final against us, probably be in black and white.



29 Mar 2020 11:45:04
I hope everyone is keeping well.
Today is the 40th Anniversary of my first Celtic game as a 5 year old. It was Celtic 4 Hibs 0 and over the years I have found out quite a lot about the game.
It was the first game Celtic played after losing 3-2 on aggregate to Real Madrid in the quarter final of the European Cup due to snow postponing a game the week before.
George Best played for Hibs that day in his only competitive game at Celtic Park.
Bobby Lennox scored the first ever goal I witnessed and it was from the Penalty spot. (the buzz bomb only scored 4 penalties in his Celtic career) it was also his last goal at Celtic Park. Frank McGarvey scored his first goal for Celtic that day and it was only 4 days before McGarvey scored the only goal of the game against Rangers with 5 minutes to go.
I think it might have been the last time both Celtic and Rangers played at home on the same day because they drew 2-2 with Aberdeen.
The 1980 riot took place a few weeks later and that’s probably one of the reasons we have never played on the same day in Glasgow since.

A father and son who are Bolton fans called Thogden and Thogdad and they go to football matches all over Europe and video their experiences. They have visited Celtic Park on a number of occasions over the last few years and they have been very complimentary of the Celtic fans. This season they have went to a few Sevco games and have also been very complimentary of the Sevco fans when they visit pubs and ask the fans of their predictions
They are both very neutral and want both clubs to do well.
Recently probably due to boredom they made a couple of videos and they both made a couple of lists of Simply the most Depressing clubs to watch and the clubs with the brightest future in the UK.
The son Thogden made Sevco the 6th most depressing club to watch and he also called them THE Rangers and both father and son put Celtic in their list of clubs with the brightest future.
I knew when I saw the videos that the over sensitive Sevco fans would take offence although my son didn’t see anything wrong with the videos.
Now apparently they are both a couple of weirdos who are no longer welcome in their pubs or anywhere near their stadium.
They should’ve stuck with only the green side of the city because they will always be made welcome in Paradise.

I watched the highlights of 2 games tonight.
The 1-1 draw at ibrokes when our fans were banned in ‘94 and a 3-1 victory at Rugby Park when Di Canio scored his first goal for Celtic in ‘96.I remember I had a great view of the goals in that superb second half.
The difference in the quality of the Celtic players we had in only 2 years was massive and the Fergus effect started to take shape.
I went to watch our reserves play Rangers at Celtic Park while the first team were playing.
I think there was about 12,000 fans at the game and we won either 3-0 or 3-1 with Chris Hay scoring a hat trick. I was at the back of the jungle with my radio when Collins scored his free kick and the place went mental.
Rangers ended up scoring from a deflection with only 10 minutes to go. That turned out to be Rangers last goal of the season because they played for another 4 games and 6 hours without scoring a single goal and their bottle crashed in the cup final when losing 1-0 to Dundee Utd and their chance of a double treble was gone.

Brilliant buzz bomb, remember these occasions but need a jolt to be refreshed. keep it up.

I was at that game. Afterwards was the craziest night ever. Ended up in the old Art School bar and met the Buzzcocks who had been playing round corner at the Garage- we ended up back at their hotel with them (the big one under the Kingston Bridge) where a Sportsman's Dinner was in full swing for Walter Smith. I went in for a pee and Billy Connolly was on one side of me and McCoist on the other. We weren't allowed to buy drinks as it was a residents bar only so Steve Diggle and Pete Shelley had to buy me and my mate drinks all night. Left about 6 in the morning and the contents of Diggle's mini bar fell out of my pockets as we came out of lift at reception. Mental night.

Guys I am going back even further, during our Lisbon season when we won EVERYTHING, we had to play a Glasgow Cup final against the old club, big Jock field mostly a reserves team but that included the "Quality Street Kids" Connelly, Davidson, Macari etc, the old club were desperate for ANY victory over us so fielded almost a full strength team with Greig their captain .
Our young bhoys played them off the park and at half time we were 3-0 going 10-0, they never got a sniff of the ball. We Celtic fans as we do, took the ultimate p! ss out of them by chanting "all we are saying is give the Rangers a CHANCE" the fans then BOOED the Celtic players and CHEERED Greig and co, as is the current's want most had disappeared by this time and when Greig scored a consolation goal the Celtic fans CHEERED, I remember him looking up in bewilderment and all us Celtic fans laughing.
Hail hail.

Chris Hay was my type of player - as was Davie Elliot. Both great with the ball at their feet and direct. Surprised neither made it.

I hope you are keeping well Robroy.
It looks like all the Associations at this present time want to finish off their seasons.
Which is good news for Celtic and our fans because we would rather win the title on the pitch.
The only problem I see with that scenario is the length of time it could take to start playing again and then the time it will take to finish off this season. There will come a time soon when the clubs will be wanting prize money to keep their clubs afloat.
Celtic and Hearts will want to wait and play the season out for obvious reasons and the rest of the clubs I think will accept to finish as we are, to get their hands on the prize money.
Sevco will be the only club who will want neither of those scenarios to come to a conclusion. Sevco will demand a null and void season to paper over the cracks, even if it hits them in the pocket. They have done everything in their power to try and stop 10 in a row and will continue to do so. They will be hoping it puts 10 in a row off for another year whilst they pray it gives them more time for major investment to come into their club.
I think personally there will need to be a deadline. If there is no chance of getting this season finished by September then they should give Celtic the title and relegate Hearts and then they can pay out the much needed prize money.
What do you think robroy?

Where you the only sane person when you wanted to send Brown out on loan and build a team around Kouassi and Bayo and replace an overrated Forster with 37 year old Gordon.

Ed. that's like saying 50 years ago Auld only won 6 titles but didn’t win the full 9 titles. He has always been classed as a 9 in a row winner. Which he is.
In 50 years time it will be the same. It will be players remembered for winning 10 in a row or whatever it may be and there will be players remembered for winning or playing a part in winning a Treble Treble.

Buzz Bomb

{Ed007's Note - Hahahaha in 50 years time maybe James Forrest will be called a Lisbon Lion as well then eh? In fact I've just decided that he is, if you can award Bertie Auld league winners medals for titles he never won and praise players for things they had nothing to do with then it's only fair that I can award James Forrest a EC winners medal.}

I can see why calling other players Lisbon Lions would annoy some people because it is not true. I didn’t think it was a big deal but from now on I will only refer to the Lisbon Lions as the players mentioned above plus the guys who played in Lisbon. 👍.

{Ed007's Note - It's not annoying, it's just wrong. So when do we stop saying that this squad has won a Treble Treble and had an invincible season?}

Okay Ed. I liked to call the 9 in a row legends the Lisbon lions because it was before my time although I clearly knew that wasn’t the case but I gave them a label because of that great achievement.
My grandkids will look at someone like Forrest who will win the full 10 titles the same way as Christie who didn’t win the full 10.The same as I look at Auld who only won 6 titles the same as I look at Billy McNeill who won the full 9 titles.
It’s not a big deal.

Buzz Bomb

{Ed007's Note - The original nine in a row has absolutely nothing to do with the Lisbon Lions apart from some of them were part of both achievements - it's not a matter of opinion.}

I thought it was reported that UEFA mentioned only last week that it was for the individual Associations to decide their outcomes. Must have been fake news or there has been a u- turn.

I agree with all your answers to your question. Edouard shows great composure in front of goal which is up there with Henrik. Edouard’s temperament and unselfishness is also up there with Larsson.
I feel more confident that Edouard will score a penalty than I was when Henrik took his penalty kicks and I feel Eddy is also slightly better with free kicks.
