Just read we have had another bid rejected for Omar Colley. Don't know whether it's an old story revived to stir things up or are we caught in two minds between Colley and Doughty? Whatever the case just do it Celts!

Ones a CB and the others a winger so I don't think its an either or situation.

Ajer away for 12-15 with add ons, and Coley in for 9ish. sounds about right. Timalloy. God bless mate. God will make everything ok.


3.) 23 Sep 2020 11:18:20
I think if we let ajer go for less than 20 will regret it in a couple of seasons.

It's fair to say the manager has his own ideas on team selection, choice/ timing of subs, or tactics and although I personally, rarely agree with most of his decisions, including his stubborness, playing Broony almost every single game: - he has been given a vote of confidence by the hierarchy to get us out of this mess - so we accept it and hope he can turn it around.
Today could be a banana skin, but if the team back their manager as much as they say in interviews, they must use today to show it.
There is absolutely no need today for two defensive midfield players in front of a back four and I would maybe bring Duffy back in for a confidence booster; therefor I would like to see this team:-
Barkas
Ajer Duffy Jullien Laxalt
Christie Cal-Mac Rogic MOI
Griffiths Eddy

I doubt NL would agree with it.

He's doing a great job of it in his first 45min since being backed. Same old dross that's painful to watch. Same disorganized, sloppy, slow play with little cutting edge while defending terribly at the back. This is the worst we have been since Mowbray and NL has much better players at his disposal.


2.) 29 Nov 2020 15:12:15
Why Duffy? Is because he is Irish? Cause he certainly is not a good football player.

Two wins in our last seven games is unheard of in recent Celtic history. We only scored 15, while conceded 17 goals in those games with only the one clean sheet against Aberdeen in the Cup semi.
If those stats don't have DD and his lackey Lawell as concerned as the rest of us and fail to act NOW, we are in serious trouble.
A serious defense of our dominant, consecutive title reign, needs immediate improvement and a winning consistency that seems a million miles away at present.
I can't see NL quitting; as even after the Ferencvaros shambles and the 'unhappy players' disclosure, he had to backtrack and sheepishly amend his press statement.
The non-contested Rangers defeat was another indication of problems in the ranks and lack of fight, still he persevered and plodded-on; then after the home thrashing by a weak Sparta Prague side, many thought would have been the last straw. A good win at Motherwell should have been a shot-in-the-arm, but a game later and the signs of a dramatic recovery evaporated into thin air.
I mentioned after the Sparta game that if supporters had been present during this painful slump there would have been a reaction; but in the safety of silent stands the manager and more importantly the team are detached and insular.
The club needs to act now - From top to bottom or too many people will be remembered for all the wrong reasons instead of Legends.

It’s actually 2 wins from 8 games since our injury time goals against St. Johnstone.
I feared Lenny wasn’t getting away with his CL exit rant.
The fact he was forced to back down made it worse for him.
Apart from big Fraser, Celtic have a better squad than last season.
Lenny’s been given the tools but he’s struggled to recapture last seasons form.
He needs to do the right thing now and step aside before it’s too late.


2.) 23 Nov 2020 11:48:51
You're right there Buzz; I included the Cup game and not the SPL run By the way; with Ed007 away (hope he's OK? ) the 'S' word is being changed again to a word I never write ha ha ha.

They can’t make the excuse it’s the ‘S’ word anymore.
I mentioned the ‘tribute act’ and it still got changed to Rangers.
I think it’s a manual act.

its already too late. The league is gone. We all know the snowball effect. It starts small, grows in size gains momentum and speed and becomes unstoppable. NL is a great ambassador for the club - he deserves all the credit both as player and manager - but his time has come. The players are not motivated and that starts at the top with the manager. The team are in freefall will be out of Europe by Thursday night and after January 2nd if not before maybe third in the league. We can only help slow the decline not prevent it because that takes time. PL has to bring in a new manager today (tomorrow is too late) - the new manager has to sideline all the players - including the expensive high earners - who have given up trying and start from scratch.

I think if we take a long hard look over the past three years, we could only go one-way after The Invincible Season when we reached our peak and star players sold-on.
Even the previous manager had his wobbles; with dubious transfers, embarrassing European hammerings - not to mention a Red Imps fiasco.
During his tenure, he comfortably saw-off Sevco under The Bread-man, Pope Pedro and Graeme Muttley (twice) as the difference in class was night and day back then.
NL will always be thanked for stepping in during a tumultuous time that could have destroyed any team, but we endured and won the historic treble-treble.
Last season was close up to a point, but we were irresistible after the winter-break and played some of our best football in ages.
The CV outbreak turned football upside down in so many ways, with other knock-on effects that have set precedents and consequences no other manager or player had ever had to deal with in their lives.
There have been other issues within the club that fester at the foundations and deplete moral.
Fixture list, Internationals, Officials have all been mentioned on here, but a Celtic side on-song and fully focused would take all that in their stride like before.
The main problem has been pure complacency from Lawell downwards with a lack of professionalism, planning, preparation and passion.
NL has been struggling all season to get these players playing to any system or rhythm and DD has to intervene before we deteriorate any further and for all NL has been to Celtic; he will not want to be remembered as the man who lost the 'ten'. He should go now.

A very good and accurate post Celtic Mad. 👍.

Been thinking (and hoping) week-by-week, since the Ferencvaros shocker, that things will improve and players will reproduce their best form and - on we go!
So here we are; It's nearly December and am still waiting.
OK we've had CV issues and consequences, injuries, most of the squad plucked away on several International interruptions and well documented player unrest?
However, we can balance some of that up, with having the most resources, biggest budget, best facilities, largest and most expensive squad and all the experience that comes with nearly ten years of dominant success;
but honestly; I am really starting to have serious doubt, that this manager or current crop of players are up for the challenges ahead?

Celtic supporters of a certain vintage are used to making excuses based on the team the Manager the board the weather the referees the SFA and now the farcical end of World virus.
Perhaps it has been ingrained that dissent of any kind is un Celtic in some way I don't know but what I do know is that I was here the first time we had 10 in a row in our grasp and I remember well the total capitulation of a team 10 times better than the one we have now.
Mark my words, the League may well already be done but the only hope Celtic have this season is if Neil Lennon is not Celtic manager next week.


2.) 21 Nov 2020 17:50:55
Nothing will change with Lennon as boss, we won’t catch Sevco now - it would be a surprise if we beat them once but now we must win all 3 as far as I’m concerned and Gerrard has Lennon’s number

Supposed to be our biggest season and it’s nothing but shambolic.


3.) 21 Nov 2020 17:52:27
The only way we have a chance of turning this around is a new manager and coaching team. Has to happen immediately.


4.) 21 Nov 2020 17:57:50
Agree with all above posts. When NL publicly hangs his captain out to dry (rightly or wrongly) u know his time is well and truly up. After Sevco shambles he should have been out. Too late now, no chance of making up that gap with this team.


5.) 21 Nov 2020 18:01:43
Lennon should have been gone weeks ago! Take your pick after what pathetic performance or result! Ferencvaros at home sevco at home Sparta Prague at home! Zero shots on goal in a derby,4 goals going on 8 against Sparta reserves! This will continue to get worse lads, make no mistake about that! We’ve made a rite can't of this season and it’s time for change now! Bring a new man in and give him time to have a good look at things going into next season!


6.) 21 Nov 2020 20:14:54
the fans on here are all in a panic that is why they all say sack lennon if we do who comes in think about it if the one they want is aready out of a job he can not be any better than lennon and if he is in a job and doing well he will not want to come to celtic and anybody whose team are doing badly who will want them. it is along way to go get behind the team like real celtic fan the last thing is to change horses in midstream it is not even mid season we will come good hh.

Butterflies in the stomach time again on International night. Nothing to do with Scotland's game as I never watch them; but here we go again into another hot-spot of CV where ALL the players and their families are being put at risk, for let's face it - a surplus tourney.

@ Celtic_mad

Scotland will blow it tonight same as U21 team last night and same country Czech Republic will top both groups, our players are still drunk from Serbia celebrations.
Talking of Czech Republic they play Slovakia tonight both countries HATE each other after their split, so lump on ordering off 3/ 1, penalty 11/ 4, two penalties 11/ 1 and
OVER 50 booking points 2/ 1.


2.) 18 Nov 2020 18:49:08
the two countries don't hate each other?

Yes might be some neighbourly rivalry however Czech Slovakia split very peacefully and was negotiated by both nations.


3.) 18 Nov 2020 19:01:35
Bitton, Christie and McGregor all start tonight in the Israel V Scotland.
Only Christie, McGinn and KT have started all 3 games for Scotland in the last 6 days.

The Board must take most of the blame for this whole situation. Lawell downgraded the standard of manager and failed to keep on top of recruitment needs, by low-balling, stalling and making-do, while apparent unhappy players were being kept against their will, only to cause disruption with minimum effort and maximum damage.
As for NL' he has been stubborn, shown misplaced loyalty, while repeating the same mistakes and excuses and here we are.
It could go from bad to worse - depending on who is rushed in the door, but again I have to say these players are an absolute disgrace. The majority have shown they are good enough to wear The Hoops, but choosing when to play or when not try-a-leg is absolutely criminal.

I don't think there is any way back from today, but again. I thought the first Spartak defeat at home was a last chance saloon?
It's a real mess, orchestrated by a complacent and out-of-touch Board who have repeatedly ignored several warnings right under their noses.
Shame on the lot of them for putting us in this predicament.

Two up front at home against the fourth bottom club I expected, but playing Brown and Biton in front of a back four of El Hamed Ajer Jullien and Laxalt is absolutely ridiculous. Well seeing he has 'The Fear' both about the defense and his job.

{Ed007's Note - Who could he have played instead with both Soro and Turnbull unavailable?}

It's definitely a combination of both, added to variety defensive partnerships between Biton, Ajer, Jullien, Duffy and four full backs.
Too much chopping and changing (much of it forced) , plus new goalie, a third choice goalie and a struggling Captain unable to keep-up; all adds up to why we are a bomb-scare defensively. No quick-fix either.

So many problems and the only solution is being ignored and totally disregarded - until it's too late and we are even worse 'shape'.

Buzz; we have both suggested Ajer at Rb as he showed at Pittodrie last season - or midfield, where his tackling, energy and ball-carrying would be an ideal replacement for the spent Broony.
Unfortunately the manager's thoughts and plans are at least misguided and at worst rigidly incompetent.

That seems to be the case Pud; Lawell takes the support for granted anyway, with his Ego treating us with patronizing contempt.
Now fans are literally 'Out-of-sight-out-of-mind', so mediocrity and potential failure on several fronts is alarmingly acceptable?!
Everybody and their dug can see how serious this deterioration has become, during this calamitous run - conceding 21 goals in 9 games. However, it is the time of year when we crave 'three wise men' to come in and sort it; we are stuck with three wise monkeys.
