What's the craic with this big laddie from Toulouse then? Reports say we're ready to offer about Eur 8m which would be fantastic from an ambition point of view. I don't know anything about the guy but if nothing else it's an exciting rumour!

Hopefully we can get this CB over the line before preseason. A lot of outlay without selling anyone but Connell and Harper could be imminent and the sale of Ntcham and Mulumbu could cover that? Hopefully money used to get Benkovic on loan again and 2 x RB and a back up LB. Can see Tierney going though so would Perraud be a worthy enough replacement? Other than that we've a solid enough starting 11. Gordon replacement? Another striker? I just can't see us spending much more after that business. But at least the board are active and trying to get things sorted early.

Seen Nestor El Maestro is 25/ 1 for the manager job. Had to look him up cos I'd never heard of him but with a name like that I hope he gets it.

We were talking about it today in work and we were convinced it was Paul McStay under an alias 😂.


2.) 15 May 2019 18:24:04
Henrik, that is a flippin cool name for a new manager lol HH.


3.) 16 May 2019 13:23:22
keV you might be spot on about mcstay he's presenting the trophy on Sunday 😂😂.

Toljan deal 'imminent' according to the Daily Record. Must be true.

Roberts to start.

1.) 15 Apr 2018 10:35:03
I hope you are right HT.


2.) 15 Apr 2018 11:38:19
Me too!


3.) 15 Apr 2018 11:50:52
would prefer Roberts definitely today over forest. hopefully Rogic gets a start aswell just in behind the moose fancy Rogic for a goal today 16/ 5 with paddy power. let the people sing!


4.) 15 Apr 2018 12:42:35
Surprised Rodgers hasn’t tried Forrest on the left and Roberts on the right given Sinclair’s poor form. Forrest prefers cutting inside anyway. Today’s probably not the day to try it though.


5.) 15 Apr 2018 12:57:42
Said that last week mate. Today will hopefully be the day Sinclair runs riot!

Was in the stadium pretty early this afternoon when only stevie woods and the 3 gks were warming up. A guy shouted SW over (I assumed they knew each other) so he came over for a chat. A couple of other fellow fans came over and they were talking about potential transfers and paddy Roberts. I heard SW say that a big signing is likely and when asked about PR he simply smiled and said you'll have to ask Brendan.
Now read into that what you will but I thought it all looked pretty positive.

HenriksTongue

1.) 30 Jul 2017 07:20:18
I think Stevie woods seems like a good guy. And wouldn't tell a fan or a mate what was happening with signings. He's probably just being nice. I would read nothing into it at all.


2.) 30 Jul 2017 12:44:43
#webelievesteve. sounds a stick on to me. has to be true.


3.) 31 Jul 2017 11:39:08
We all want it to be true. That doesn't mean it is sadly.

And there is no way Stevie would be letting any cats out if bags. The guys a pro. So, meh.

But by feck do I hope it's true!


4.) 31 Jul 2017 18:11:22
Just passing on what I heard. I didn't say he told these punters any secrets but it did sound positive.


5.) 31 Jul 2017 18:34:00
I hope it's true mate. I could reduce my Valium intake.

What's your thoughts on Garry Parker Ed? If you have any that is.

HenriksTongue

{Ed007's Note - After the last couple of days on here probably best I keep them to myself. I'm sure there's plenty of posters who will tell you how good a coach & tactician he is, I mean he's worked beside Lennon for years so he's learnt from one of the best. Getting Bolton relegated and getting Hibs to the dizzy heights of 8th in the SPFL is quite a CV.}


1.) 29 May 2019 11:17:23
Haha that's what I thought. Surely there's some masterplan still to come out. Right?

{Ed007's Note - The thought of Lennon & his agent on holiday with Kris Commons is giving me the fear. Fingers crossed they were just at the same birthday celebrations and there's nothing more sinister afoot.}


2.) 29 May 2019 11:49:34
I heard Lisa Commons is coming in as head of club relations.

{Ed007's Note -

via GIPHY


3.) 29 May 2019 11:59:26
Just think though ed. Mrs commons will be back on the supporters buses.


4.) 29 May 2019 12:52:21
Hopefully it's not an old pals act with Lennon trying to talk Commons out of retirement. Sentiment gets you nowhere in football. See Izzy was offered another deal and Lustig likely will be too. Hooper and Stokes to spearhead the attack next season.


5.) 29 May 2019 12:53:34
I read she had her vagina tightened recently. Shame they couldn't do anything with her gob.

{Ed007's Note - What?}


6.) 29 May 2019 14:33:52
Brilliant JimTim, Brilliant lol.


7.) 29 May 2019 23:04:48
Everytime we get a new Manager we have problems . With B R it was his teeth whitening and with Lennon its him going on holiday with the woman who occupies Kris Commons bed when she isn't with S. Gerrard.


8.) 29 May 2019 23:55:57
Lennon and Commons have the same agent and were on a 50th weekend together, that's all that was going on.


9.) 30 May 2019 09:30:56
😂 vagina surgery Ed. Tightens it. Just google 'Lisa Hague Vagina' and it'll pop up. Delete your search history though before the Mrs gets on 😂.


10.) 30 May 2019 09:37:38
He lead hibs to there highest points tally ever in the league ED. why can't you point out the positives of Lennon always negative stuff about him and ignore his achievements. Clarke has been praised as a great manager for getting kilmarnock there highest point tally ever and getting them into Europe. Which Neil Lennon did with hibs in his first season back up with them after he got them up from championship first time of asking yet use call his time at hibs terrible. Lennon lost his full midfeild in the summer there and had to rebuild yes they did not have a great season this year not his whole time at hibs as you're making out. So why do you not point out all this. It's just he got hibs 8th.


 

 

27 May 2019 16:14:39
Ed you've made it very clear that your no fan of Lennon. If it was up to you, who would your choice be? Realistically of course. I know you wanted Bielsa but think you also said that was never going to happen.

HenriksTongue

{Ed007's Note - Phillip Cocu is available, so is AVB & Claudio Ranieri, they might not have been interested but we should have been finding out for definite. Even Moyes would have been a better appointment for the continuation of the high professional standards and youth development. As we know from experience Lennon's football won't be any better to watch than Moyes' would.
I kept saying that I would love to have seen a list of applicants or who had shown interest in taking over - now we find out Lawwell never even looked at it. Is that a CEO doing his job properly and doing what's best for the Club?
When, not if, this all goes Pete Tong Lawwell should lose his job over this.}


1.) 27 May 2019 16:52:41
Its pure negligence IMO that he never looked at the names or interviewed any one for the job Stinks of biscuit tin mentality And it wouldn't surprise me if we had a big clear out and only brought in 2 new payers costing in total 5 million pounds Calls himself a supporter looks like the only thing he supports is the bank balance see how much he can have in it.

{Ed007's Note - The £9 million we got from Leicester for Rodgers will be the 'transfer warchest' 😂


2.) 27 May 2019 17:24:46
Lawwell should hang his head when you see John mcginn play today.
Everything in a player we are looking for.
Let's hope we don't don't let Turnbull at Motherwell go the same way.


3.) 27 May 2019 17:44:42
Do we know for certain that PL never looked at a list. Is it possible that certain targets like the ones you mentioned were contacted and said they weren't interested which is why we went with Lennon? Not saying I don't believe you, just wondered if that was a fact.

{Ed007's Note - It came from Lawwell's own lips:

"We had approaches from many, many agents, many representatives of managers across the board. How credible it was, you never really know. We put them in the file, just left it and kept our word to Neil, really."


4.) 27 May 2019 17:55:45
Cheers Ed. That's really disappointing.

{Ed007's Note - It's baffling incompetency mate and once again it'll be the fans that suffer.}


5.) 27 May 2019 18:40:38
Sounds like they offered Lenny the job a while ago on a permanent basis?

{Ed007's Note - It does mate.}


 

 

15 May 2019 13:00:25
Bit of a cynical post and I'm sure most will disagree with but is there any chance the powers that be don't actually want us to continue dominating the way we have been the past 3 years or so?

I live down south and on a daily basis I get the usual Scottish football is crap, one horse race etc etc. Most folk ask do I not get bored winning all the time? Of course growing up in the 90s with rangers domination I explain why I love my club being on the verge of a treble treble.

My question is would it be possible that PL/ DD want our rival (s) to be closer to us for competitions' sake and will not want to ensure we win 10 in a row?

Just wondered what Ed and everyone else's thoughts are. Part of me can't shake off the feeling that football is a bit rigged at times.

HenriksTongue

{Ed007's Note - I have no doubts that with the amount of money involved football is fixed at certain levels mate - there's even some talk that Leicester's Pub League win was rigged by an Asian betting syndicate - but we only need to look at the SFA's treatment of the original Rangers and the Calciopoli scandal in Italy a few years back - but from what I hear from people close to the board, Lawwell and Desmond especially, they are as desperate as us to keep ahead of any Ibrox based club, how far in front is the obvious question. Ed001 has repeatedly said that referees in England show an obvious bias towards Man City to ensure they win and keep 11 on the park.
To be honest I think the religious & political divide that exists in Scotland would make it hard to fix games up and both parties know what was going on. I think up here it would be more likely betting on a red card that can be controlled by as few people as possible.
I'm not giving this website any credence but a lot of people do think it's spot on and there's plenty of others out there if you want to look into it:

www.footballisfixed.blogspot.com/


1.) 15 May 2019 13:55:41
Interesting. Cheers Ed. It would be amazing if DD/ PL actually spent some real money getting a top coaching team in. We all heard that DD essentially told PL to bury sevco after they beat us in the semi final in 2016. I'm hoping (but not holding my breath) that the defeat on Sunday is the catalyst to ensure we continue to dominate.

Incidentally, who makes the decision? Is it the board who vote, or does DD basically say who he wants in?

{Ed007's Note - It's ultimately a board decision but they'll just back whoever Desmond and Lawwell agree on.}


2.) 15 May 2019 14:39:11
In all honesty. Has Desmond ever wanted to bury rangers going by the way the clubs been run in the last 6 month that seems a bit far fetched.


3.) 15 May 2019 15:27:12
We have dominated from the year 2000 and are going for treble treble!


4.) 15 May 2019 15:36:53
The old firm is a cash cow both sides want to maintain.

Go and Google the 1909 Scottish cup final.

They drew and went to replay. Another draw. Instead of extra time the game was set for a third replay.

Fans of both clubs invaded the park and tore down the goalposts as they felt it was being manipulated to make more cash from a third game.

Unfortunately our fans these days are much more trusting and almost refuse to question the actions of what is ultimately Tory businessmen running clubs. Bizarre.


5.) 15 May 2019 16:11:23
So do you think the website Ed posted has some truth to it? We know you're a bit of troll but genuinely interested to hear other fans thoughts.


6.) 15 May 2019 16:30:29
If you read through the info and the statistics either the matches play our perfectly to look like match fixing or it is match fixing haha. It’s crazy.


7.) 15 May 2019 17:05:14
Really interesting thread this, it has crossed my mind that a lot of this shenanigans goes on. Sadly the game is all about money these days and to generate interest in the game you need competition. Makes you wonder if the club really do want to bury the club playing out of Ibrox. The next couple of seasons will tell, we have the resources to do it, but will we? . You get the feeling in an ideal world the club would like a closely contested league with Celtic winning it which keeps the interest from around the world.


8.) 15 May 2019 17:33:30
HT I was born in 86 and grew up watching them win everything. I celebrate every single win and trophy like it’s the first we have won in years. The pain from growing up will never leave, as will all the sevconian’s pain who were born in the late 90’s early 00’s 😂.


9.) 15 May 2019 21:59:56
I'm a year older than you Kev and my first cup final was Ibrox against Raith Rovers. The stick I took at school the next day I'll never forget. In fact all the slagging I took was worth it when you compare us to them now. I just hope the board don't let us down.
Like my dad always used to say to me "it's not easy supporting Celtic".


10.) 16 May 2019 00:09:19
Stevie we don't need to bury them they done that all by themselves.


11.) 16 May 2019 01:11:02
Henrikstongue
Imo I think dd and pl want to dominate rangers but at the least possible cost they can because it is a business, just like when rangers went down they appointed Deila probably the cheapest option possible just enough to keep the likes of Aberdeen at bay while not having to spend much money everything they do revolves around making sure the board is happy while making money, these kind of people have money because they are smart only spending it when they have too and even then it’s grudged! it all makes for frustrating watching but their never going to spend more money than they have too, the way they see it is why spend 50m to win the spl when you could spend 10m, still win it and with a bit luck could maybe get into the champions league.


12.) 16 May 2019 01:25:40
HT same mate, made up for it in the Scottish Cup though, big pierres header. Only trophy I got to see mcstay lift as captain as a celtic fan. Too young to remember previous ha ha.


 

 

11 May 2019 19:11:43
With the news today that Lee Congerton has resigned, does this indicate a completely new management team to come in? I can't say I was sad to hear of his departure as I don't think many of us really thought he did a good job although Ed has said he's very highly rated in the game so who knows.
Any idea of who might replace him or will a DoF come in in his place?

Anyway only 3 games left this season. Let's get a good result at Ibrox tomorrow but most importantly win the treble treble. What a great time to be a Tim!

If Turnbull accepted our offer then our fans would accept him no problem. It's his agent who is the problem. As for Matthews, I liked him when he was here but if he can't get a game for Sunderland then he's not good enough for Celtic.

Not seen much of him either but he's popular among the kids and grownups at his current club.

Tim yesterday you said you didn't blame lawwell. We made the guy a good offer but he's heading to Norwich for more money. Why not wait and see who we bring in before you have a go. We've just won the treble treble in case you forgot.

A right back, centre half and striker have to be brought in. If Ntcham goes he needs to be replaced but if not I hope we build the team around him and he gets back to the form of 2 seasons ago.
