PAPER TALK. Apparently Celtic have held talks with Keane about mangers job 🤷🤷.


1.) 26 Mar 2021 10:10:23
Seem to recall them saying the same before they appointed Lennon and then we later found out that they had not interviewed anybody and just given the job to Lennon.

2.) 26 Mar 2021 10:50:17
It looks like he has had a interview, but so has others . I don’t think he will get it, this is not a rumour but I think one name will be Andriy Shevchenko, the reason I say that is it seems like his name is being linked with a few jobs and he is rated highly, let’s hope we hear soon .

3.) 26 Mar 2021 11:36:25
Hope they name a manager soon as once again we will have had two full weeks between games and I for one need a Celtic related distraction.

4.) 26 Mar 2021 12:40:26
I would prefer to be managerless than appoint Roy Keane as we will be in a better position in 6 months time.

5.) 26 Mar 2021 17:47:21
Utter garbage.



29 Nov 2020 17:04:07
Fans outside the ground, protesting.


1.) 29 Nov 2020 17:12:51
H*n sense of entitlement mentality. Embarrassing.

2.) 29 Nov 2020 17:28:32
Your post is embarrassing JFP.

3.) 29 Nov 2020 17:33:03
How's it embarrassing. The board have failed to act so far. We supposed to just accept it and go home?

4.) 29 Nov 2020 17:47:33
JFP not embarrassing its gutting this is what we have resorted to. We had belief in going for the 10. We've been fed sh*t. Its okay to pay for virtual season tickets at excessive prices. Pay for club merchandise but been forced to watch the sh*t whilst they collect in excess of 10k a week salaries. The fans are voicing their concerns can't complain about it this time.

5.) 29 Nov 2020 17:55:53
The money that Hammond and Lennon have wasted us a disgrace that all e is gross misconduct and our st money down the drain. time for hard decisions.

6.) 29 Nov 2020 18:33:15
If you guys think that singing Lennon, Lennon GTF to a man who may have failed but nonetheless had given us his best in a country where he’s been treated like that since his arrival to Scotland’s shame without us joining in isn’t embarrassing after we’ve won 11 out of the last 12 trophies we’re watching a different film lads. I’ll repeat embarrassing. Watch the videos and get a life.

{Ed007's Note - I'm with you, JFP. It's well known I'm not Lennon's biggest fan but they way some of the support have turned on him is disgusting - I called out the players for downing tools under Deila and I'm calling them out for the same under Lennon. I don't blame him for that defeat today at all, this one 100% lies at the players' feet for me, that performance today was nothing to do with tactics or coaching and everything to do with millionaire footballers either not trying a leg or thinking all they need to do is turn up and we'll get a result.}

7.) 29 Nov 2020 19:03:56
Why are these fans not gunning for Lawwell?

I'm a big critic of Lennon however its not just his fault. Lawwell has avoided the gallows on far too many occasions. He should be out the door as well.

{Ed007's Note - Good point well made, Phil but to be fair to Lawwell he didn't sell anyone as we all expected and he has backed the footballing department with money this summer.}

8.) 29 Nov 2020 19:04:11
Ed 👍 I know you’ve never been the managers biggest fan but disgusting is spot on. You’re also 100% correct again the players cannot be exonerated and need to take a good hard look at themselves.

{Ed007's Note - When we win the league - whether that's under Lennon or A.N. Other - a lot of the players will need to be reminded of these times, especially the Scottish ones who are supposed to be the heartbeat of the team.}

9.) 29 Nov 2020 19:06:05
Best fans in the world Not with this showing
Lennon shouldn’t be in this position as he shouldn’t have got the job in the first place? After Xmas last year
Rangers were dropping points left right and centre and we went on a right run and because of that he got the job
We should have seen this coming last year.

10.) 29 Nov 2020 19:10:09
Singing Lennon gtf is out of order but protesting is required. They've taken it too far though.

11.) 29 Nov 2020 19:17:54
JFP fully agree.

Reminiscent of them running through Ibrox a few years back and we all laughed!

It appears the idiots in our fan base are becoming a larger minority than previously thought!

What are they going to do if they breach the police cordon? Hit the players? Challenge them?

Heads are down, Lennon is aware of his performance but 100 goons shouting and screaming will make it all better?

12.) 29 Nov 2020 19:10:09

13.) 29 Nov 2020 19:32:25
Embarrassing fans protesting during a lockdown. Makes us look like dafties and gives their mob even more ammunition to taunt us with.
The PLAYERS are to blame! Lennon has won numerous trophies as player and manager and doesn’t deserve to be treated like that.
The board will sack him based on results not because of a mob of fans shouting abuse at him.
Another sad day today made worse by our so called fans.
Make a banner, voice your concerns on social media or directly by mail to the club.
Everyone knows this is not good enough but gathering in large crowds during C.V. lockdown is the type of thing that gets the league shut down and awarded to Rangers.

14.) 29 Nov 2020 19:27:34
I can see both sides to the argument here, but as I said the other day, lawell and Desmond don’t read this page or other fan pages. If they aren’t shown how we feel they will feel we can just ride this out. Another point I made was that the longer lennie stayed the fans would start turning on him which is not comfortable to see. You can’t blame him for not wanting to quit for a variety of reasons so the board should have took this out of his hands probably after ferencvaros.

{Ed007's Note - Lawwell and Desmond don't read these pages but you can be 100% certain that Lawwell is kept well informed with what's being said on forums etc by his lackey, baw-humming bloggers .}

15.) 29 Nov 2020 19:55:07
Henriks Tongue go back and read your response to my earlier comment and either stand by it or retract it. You now have two contradictory posts. A man with one ar$e can’t ride two horses. You asked me why it was embarrassing and i’ve told you. I protested against the board in the Kelly era. Different days different scenarios. I’m also paying hard earned cash to watch my team when I can’t see them play which is why my biggest issue is with overpaid prima-donnas. Establish the facts before shooting from the lip. Goodnight and God Bless. ☘️.

16.) 29 Nov 2020 20:20:20
ed that's sure is confidence surely you can see us win this league mate?

{Ed007's Note - Of course I can, it's the end of November and we've played 13 games.}

17.) 29 Nov 2020 20:39:34
JFP I have no problem with fans protesting. It's the only way Lawwell and Desmond are going to act. However singing Lennon gtf and fighting with police is disgraceful.

Thats what I said. Not contradicting myself at all.

18.) 29 Nov 2020 21:04:43
I think protesting in normal times is not wrong in this situation But this is not normal times And it was not right, singing Lennon GTF I don't think its wrong I really wish he would leave He has lost every bit of respect I have off him. He has ruined a good team and I do agree PL has to take a huge part off the blame for the situation we are in And I am utterly shocked that he (Lennon) is still at the club as manager Another Sally but in a Celtic top.

19.) 29 Nov 2020 21:27:28
i get that and respect what your saying but i don't see us turning this around ed but oh my i hope I'm wrong.

{Ed007's Note - Oh ye of little faith, Liam.}

20.) 29 Nov 2020 22:01:34
Ed our recruitment gas been awful not one summer signing looks the part. And we spent 5 mill on soro and turnbull why he never plays them even tho we are struggling. And we needed a w/ o her and never signed one baffling.

{Ed007's Note - So not one summer signing looks the part but you're questioning why Turnbull - a summer signing - hasn't been playing? I'm lost with that logic mate......
It isn't Lennon fault who we sign or who we don't sign, anyone that still believes he has any control - not just an input - are kidding themselves on.}

21.) 29 Nov 2020 22:44:49
In general Hammond Lennon am not including turnbull because for some reason he doesn't play when we are clearly struggling mate.

22.) 29 Nov 2020 23:11:04
spot on ed007 a few players need shown the door in January.

I take comfort knows they aren't any better than us. What we've done this season is self harm. A decent manger would have got a tune out if those players this season, and maybe just maybe installed a bit of realism and not made the C.V. mistakes that sunk our season.

Yes players will go, but I'd like to think that a manger has been identified as well as players.

From about 10 games into the season they've been able to play with no pressure and walk to the title.

We all know what happens when pressure is applied to them. Let's turn up the heat from the start next season.


1.) 21 Mar 2021 17:16:21
I find it even more frustrating that we have surrendered a title to a very average team, simply because, we were totally unprofessional and complacent with disruptive attitudes and poor priorities from day 1.
I know we had more than our fair share of CV issues compounded by a Government and Establishment that seemed to have it's own agenda; but the bottom line is we blew it without much of a fight. Shocking.

2.) 21 Mar 2021 18:27:27
Spot on onceabhoy.

3.) 21 Mar 2021 18:27:46
I’m a tad miffed that we couldn’t beat a team that was lacking energy and quality.

Sooner this season is over the better.



22 Feb 2021 18:40:06
See if we had lost league and put up a good showing, lost to a better team. We'll all you can do is hold your hands up and say well done. Still hard to take but easier if you know what I mean.

But to turn a 15 point positive into a 33 negative. How?

Somewhere some how why this season has blown up in our faces will come out.

Once the league is matamathical over I think we may see some movement on the manager front.




21 Feb 2021 21:41:54
Reading the headlines today and Lennon said after 5 wins on the bounce we're heading in the right direction.

It was reported that Ajeti was going to get a run of games. Not materialised.

Constantly playing a midfielder up top with Eddy.

Lennon said he can't divulge what's went on this season.

Let's get the last 8 games out the way and start a new. What that new will be who knows.




25 Jan 2021 10:27:41
Reading the DR cause papers always tell the true. But they have run a story on BR and the fact he couldn't get his way in the transfer market even after what he did in his first 2 seasons.

Apparently he wanted to new fullbacks Castagne as a replacement for Lustig and James Justin at left back to replace KT when he was sold.

Guess what 2 players were playing fullbacks when Leicester best Chelsea the other night.

As reported.

We could look at this season on isolation, C.V. and others. But the seeds where being sown years before this with the boards reluctance to bring in quality replacements.

As a result we have ended up with Lennon and a 3rd rate backroom team that's not fit for purpose.

Years and years of mismanagement.

Celtic let's not make the same mistakes or we could be in for years of dominance by the other lot 🤷🤷.


{Ed007's Note - Brendan Rodgers wasn't Celtic manager when KT left.}

1.) 25 Jan 2021 10:33:39
Hi Ed i know that but apparently he was looking for his replacement as the inevitable sale would happen.

{Ed007's Note - It was Rodgers scurrying out the back door that started the chain of events leading to KT leaving. If Rodgers had stayed (or the board had appointed a higher calibre of manager as his replacement) he would have stayed for the 9IAR and possibly a crack at 10. It was when Lennon was appointed permanently KT decided that he needed to move on to keep his own career & development moving forward.}

2.) 25 Jan 2021 10:58:50
And what a decision that was by KT given how the players now are totally void of any confidence hence the sports psychologist being brought in.

{Ed007's Note - If Lennon hadn't left the first time it's likely KT would have moved on as Lennon preferred Izaguirre while KT was more than capable and was at the stage where he needed to be playing first team football.
Did KT maybe realise that the level of training & coaching - even the general standards - was going to nosedive from what he was used to under RD and Rodgers?}

3.) 25 Jan 2021 11:45:27
The point I'm trying to make is, this season has been in the making since BR didn't get his ambitions met. We can argue his scurrying out the back door triggered the chain of events. But the board looking at spreedsheets and patting each other on the back for profits being made lost site of actually staying in front of the competition and didn't see that lot coming.

{Ed007's Note - All I said was that Rodgers left before KT so I don't see how he had a replacement for him in mind when KT had no intentions of leaving for a while yet until Rodgers himself left.}

4.) 25 Jan 2021 11:51:18
And like the replacements for Virgil dembelle lustig forster our lbs are second rate.

5.) 25 Jan 2021 13:47:47
I remember us being linked with Justin and Castagne. It's a difficult one as the wage bill was already around 60m and certainly castagne would have cost a fortune in wages along with the 10m fee. When we only take in a couple of million for tv and league finish it makes it difficult. The argument is it would give us a better shot at CL qualification and so it would pay for itself. Going forward we certainly need to give ourselves a better chance of qualifying. Players out of position and no strikers is never going to cut it.

6.) 25 Jan 2021 14:17:54
Castagne said he wasnt coming to Scotland when he was approached and it killed any move stone dead but rodgers wouldn't let it go.
This rewriting of history needs to stop.



17 Jan 2021 15:53:49
As has been said.

Fail to prepare, prepare to fail.

Unfortunately Celtic don't act ie let Lennon go till the end of the season. I'm thinking (or more in hope) that whoever they have in mind to come in is already employed and maybe waiting till the season finishes.

How on earth Kennedy managed to get to assistant manager is beyond me. I'm sorry but seeing Kennedy standing on the side lines does nothing for the confidence.

We have filled our back room team full of average coaches is it any wonder our performances lack creativity, fitness, effort.

I don't think the team are as bad as the weekly performances suggest. You don't become a bad team over night. This has been in the making since December 2019. After getting out played by Rangers we went to Dubai and came back playing a 352 and it worked. It also papered over the cracks cause let's face it we weren't doing to well up to that point all be it we kept pace with Rangers.

But the start of this season showed how inept our coaching staff rely are.

Brendan Rodgers showed with a bit of no how, you can turn under achievers into invincibles.

We need a manager and coaching staff who commands respect, has that know how.

I don't think we need a whole new team, just new ideas and fresh motivation.


1.) 17 Jan 2021 19:24:23
We actually do need a whole new team, all these players either have loans expiring, contracts running to last 12 months, expressed they want to leave or simply aren't good enough.

Plus none of the youngsters looked capable the last couple of games.

New squad needed and work needed now to start putting it together.

2.) 17 Jan 2021 21:36:56
You could add Barkas and Bain to that list.

Like said it all depends who's in the backroom coaching.

They went out and got that guy Beale to help Slippy.

By all accounts it's Beale who sets the tactics.

So as long as we don't fill the backroom team with crap it could work with Keane.

Although I'd rather it wasn't.

Can't see it. There's better people out there better equipped to advise on who should be the next managers.

I think like Lennon at the time, Celtic don't want anyone else but Keane.

If we're winning and not conceding goals. Yes. I'd rather see a winning team than a team playing with flare and losing a goal at every set piece we concede.

JFP unfortunately Police Scotland where simply out numbered. There must have been a ratio of something like 1 officer to 40 fans. Impossible to manage.


{Ed007's Note - That's why the police have horses & dogs and go through training to disperse crowds and deal with morons. Did they leave their CS spray in the station?}
