Brighton back in for Eddy?

I'm busy but I've got Airdrie Taxis number.


1.) 06 Aug 2021 16:05:41
Am no busy, so I was watching a couple of games v. Sevco from 2018 and he is now a shadow of the player he was and should be.
Hopefully he gets his move, we get some cash and improve to team and everybody's happy?

2.) 06 Aug 2021 16:33:18
I think that's the main problem OAB. We all how good the guy can be but when u see the way he is now its hard to watch and not go mad. Glad to hear you have the taxi on standby JFP.

3.) 06 Aug 2021 17:23:52
Al pick him up am no daen anything 🤣.

4.) 06 Aug 2021 17:39:47
I can drop him at Cairnryan in the morning â›´.

5.) 06 Aug 2021 19:13:25
Got a mate at DHL, just make sure the box is well taped up.

6.) 06 Aug 2021 20:38:42
If Eddy starts on Sunday Then the fans need to make him up his game.

7.) 07 Aug 2021 07:10:11
Southampton are supposed to bidding too but they won't or can't offer the wages Brighton are offering eddy.



26 Mar 2021 13:06:07
Unsure whether the wife is collaborating with Pedro and Cork Paul to send me over the edge given I'm worth more dead than alive.

But she's just come in from work and reported that Keano was allegedly seen in the Dakota Hotel.

Either that or he was heard feckn shouting.


{Ed007's Note - You'll be hoping Mark Chapman's escaped..... 😉

1.) 26 Mar 2021 14:24:41
J you'll be hoping it's actually in dakota 🤣.

2.) 26 Mar 2021 14:39:09
Dakota Hotel JFP?
There's no way Terry Thomas is forking out for that unless an announcement is imminent 😄.

Is Davies signed for Liverpool?


1.) 31 Jan 2021 19:10:17
Not confirmed as yet JFP but they've apparently offered 2M as well as sending their young Dutch CB, Sepp Van Den Berg, to PNE on loan for the remainder of the season.

2.) 31 Jan 2021 19:14:39
So he hadn't signed any pre contract to join us then.

3.) 31 Jan 2021 19:15:47
sore one if we do miss out.

4.) 31 Jan 2021 19:21:33
a real sore one and one to join the list of regrets this shouldn't have been allowed to happen no way.

5.) 31 Jan 2021 19:31:49
What half decent player outwith scotland is going to sign for us at present when no one knows who's running the asylum.
We are a complete basket case.

6.) 31 Jan 2021 20:16:58
Every time we try to sign a player it takes weeks. Other clubs get these things done in a matter of days. We seem to haggle over every penny and make sure every intricate details benefits the club rather than just agree a price and a wage.
We’ve had since January 1st to talk to Davies if we wanted him. We’ve know the defence needed work, but we wait till the last couple of days, take ages over it and someone comes in a steals him in a matter of hours.
I know I’m making it more simplistic than it is, but look how quickly the Sevconians get dead done. Liverpool will have him signed in a matter of hours.
We really are a sham of a club.
You can guarantee Lennon will see out the season, and I definitely wouldn’t bet against him being here next season.

{Ed007's Note - We've been talking to Davies agent for weeks and he was in no hurry to leave PNE, the pre-contract is agreed but not signed - there was also talks held with TRIFC, Newcastle and Bournemouth.
If a player chooses somewhere else that's hardly Celtic's fault.}

7.) 31 Jan 2021 20:55:24
Fair enough on this one if Davies stalled, but we always take ages to get deals done when other clubs have them done quickly.

{Ed007's Note - Honestly mate it doesn't work like that although it sometimes feels like it does. Most transfers are long drawn out affairs and things can change in the blink of an eye. Without taking a dig at you, Degsy or anyone else but the normal fan in the street has no idea what's involved and to be honest neither did I until I started doing this and learning from people like Ed001 & Ed002 - I was the exact same and just try to pass on what I've learned and found out over the years.}

8.) 31 Jan 2021 21:31:14
If PNE know he has agreed terms with us, and Liverpool offer the reported 2 million, of course they would accept, it’s two million or potentially nothing. And it can’t be celtics fault, even if we wanted to spend the 2 million, what player would reject the chance of Liverpool to stay at PNE or join us. We need to be more positive now and build for the future, loan deals make better sense, let the next manager and with any luck DOF choose the players required rather than acquiring a squad of previous choices, especially when signings have been so poor. We think we are only going for these pre contracts as it’s a nominal fee for players with a higher value, business decisions rather than footballing.

Motherwell have apparently accepted an offer from Celtic for Declan Gallagher?


1.) 30 Jan 2021 19:57:32
Oh super more rubbish to add to the stockpile.

2.) 30 Jan 2021 19:59:03
Is a swap deal for Lennon?

3.) 30 Jan 2021 20:37:28
shocking if we have.

4.) 30 Jan 2021 20:46:36
Any news on the Preston defender yet?

5.) 30 Jan 2021 21:57:46
Kev, Davies has agreed a pre contract with Celtic. Talks are now ongoing to see if a deal can be done before the window closes. If a deal can’t be reached we will announce the pre contract deal.

6.) 30 Jan 2021 23:04:39
A definite drop in standard but will do a job in a team with young Welsh I feel. Bitton can't stay at the back, Duffy has to leave and I feel Ajer will leave also.

7.) 30 Jan 2021 23:46:02
This is why loans should only be allowed until the new manager comes in. We don't want to fill the squad with players that ain't good enough and won't want to move on because they won't find a better wage elsewhere. Unless it's genuine quality we are bringing in, which clearly Gallagher isn't.

8.) 31 Jan 2021 07:54:50
I don’t agree on the Declan Gallagher view. The bhoy has proven himself on the International stage and the money and wages it would take, has to be considered a good squad player. Duffy made a few mistakes, however he didn’t have a decent keeper behind him. One which could easily have saved both of those goals. When NL said at the start of the window that GK was not a position we were looking to strengthen in, I was worried about second place then and I’m getting more and more worried as the day goes on, surely we could get a keeper in on loan until we find some team crazy enough to take Barkas off our hands. Also if there is someone earmarked for the Celtic job at the end of the season, give it to Broonie and Kennedy, until then. Second place is in serious jeopardy and not only that, each and everyone of us are going to be robbed of our only escapism from this C.V. Watching Celtic was supposed to help ease the hardship of these lockdowns, we pleaded to get the football back, given the choice, I would rather get the season called now. Let the fn red arrows fly over and the rubbish of 55 start. I’d much rather that, than endure this for another few months and then listen to that rubbish then. Things are not going to improve unless something is done and it is breaking my heart and sickening me more and more each day. HH 💚🍀.

9.) 31 Jan 2021 10:26:42
Gallagher is dugmeat. Proven at international level haha he has had 1 decent game for Scotland embarrassing signing if it happens.

10.) 31 Jan 2021 11:00:28
I’d take Declan Gallagher, if only as a squad player. But I’d say he’s probably better then what we have at the moment with injuries, want aways and loans. Not just a new team next season, possibly a new squad 🤷🏼‍♂️.

11.) 31 Jan 2021 15:44:48
Dc, the boy is a player, can read the game and if you can’t see that, I’m sorry bud. He’s actually had a couple of good games and that’s playing beside players, he’s never played with before. HH.

12.) 31 Jan 2021 16:26:04
Bbb209 are you serious Duffy made mistakes because the goalkeepers weren’t good enough.

13.) 02 Feb 2021 07:02:39
Hi Ok, I meant we are punished even more, than if there was a better keeper. Not defending Duffy one bit. Right from the start if every game, he goes through players trying to win a ball he has no chance of getting to and gives away needless free kicks. Some if his antics in the box are wild, throwing himself about like a keeper. So the answer to your question is no. Merely that it is highlighted even more by our lack of a good keeper. I also don’t entertain the fact that JK is a good coach either, as our defence is absolutely shocking, so good knows what he is teaching them.

A piece of light hearted trivia from out here in the town with two eyes and the aroma.

I went to the Bon Accord in Glasgow for a diet coke and four pints of stout a few weeks back when I was in seeing the Tommy Burns story which was excellent I'd highly recommend it when the opportunity arises again which it will surely do.

I met the owner who was telling me he'd shaken hands with Jimmy McGrory who was our third manager and every Celtic manager since that's 19 managers including Mr McGrory. Big Ange is number 22 and he hasn't had the privilege yet but he hopes to do so in the near future to maintain his record.

So there you are I thought that was quite a wee story that was worth sharing among friends.


1.) 11 Aug 2022 19:38:27
He’s a very lucky guy, to have personally met so many great men.

2.) 11 Aug 2022 19:48:29

It’s a great story eh?

The only two managers I met personally were big Billy and Tommy.

Not a bad two to meet though.

3.) 11 Aug 2022 20:14:40
I’ve only personally met Big Billy and Lenny.
When I was a 17 year old in 1991,I was introduced to Billy McPhail, who scored a hat trick in the 7-1 game in 1957.
I knew who he was because I recognised him from the Celtic videos, with his white beard and glasses. He was a lovely man.
Allan Herron the journalist took me in to see him.

4.) 11 Aug 2022 20:34:59

Billy and Tommy were the only mangers I’ve met.

But I met Jinky a few times and had a good craic. One time I’m Coatbridge he was leaving a place and the troops were all drinking wine around a bonfire singing ‘Jimmy Johnstone on the wing’. Somebody asked him if he’d rather go out the back door and he said no. He knew he’d never be safer and signed all the laddies tops who
were wearing Celtic jerseys on the way out. Some man.

I also met Stevie Chalmers, John Clarke and Bertie. I met Bertie in hospitality and the guy with him asked me where I was from. When I told him (which is worse than just being from Airdrie) he said ‘What the f**** are you doing in here? ’.

5.) 11 Aug 2022 21:03:40
Good memories JFP.
Bertie served me my first pint in Bairds Bar.
Wullie O’Neill also served me in Bairds Bar and he showed me his medal from Lisbon, given to him because he played in earlier rounds.
I also met Jinky in Bairds and he came to our Supporters Clubs POTY dance, held in the Jock Stein Lounge.
In your town JFP, I met Frank McGarvey in the West End Bar about 20 years ago.
It was a Friday afternoon and Frank had his joiners belt on, after finishing his shift.

6.) 11 Aug 2022 21:22:04

Frank McGarvey very good player too ? jfp.

7.) 11 Aug 2022 21:24:35
There's a photograph that sits in my house of my brother being presented with the player of the year award from Jock Stein, presentation night for Clarkston Amateurs.

8.) 11 Aug 2022 21:40:38
Franks definitely a character JFP.
In my first ever Celtic game, I saw Frank score his first Celtic goal.



03 Aug 2022 21:16:44

Any chance we could just talk about us?

I've created a world in which they don't exist it's fantastic.

What they do or what they don't do whether they live or whether they die whether they win the champions league or whether they go out on the first round doesn't matter to me. I'm a Celtic supporter and I'm only interested in Celtic.

If I'm missing something tell me and I'll go away.


{Ed007's Note - Spot on, JFP and I've been saying it for years, when something happens with them have a laugh and move on but far too many Celtic fans would rather read bad news from OFFC than good news from Celtic.
But be careful, JFP - you're not allowed to say things like that or you get accused of being a hate filled bigot etc.}

1.) 03 Aug 2022 21:56:07
JFP1888 spot on.

{Ed007's Note - ??

2.) 03 Aug 2022 22:12:05
JFP, absolutely correct. HH.

3.) 03 Aug 2022 22:30:04
Part of me lives for ripping the pish out of them. I don’t care who plays for them or manages them just as long a the get pumped more than us. As a young bhoy I lived in a mainly proddy housing scheme during our first 9 in a row. The songs we sung were mainly calling their players names. It’s good healthy banter to despise them. As an erasure song says sevco I Love to Hate you.

{Ed007's Note - There's 'Proddies' on here that are massive Celtic fans, if you bring it down to religion you're lowering yourself to their levels, the same Jesus we both believe in taught us

Christ our Lord with love enormous from the cross
his lesson taught to love all men as I have loved you

God and Jesus ain't giving a $hit how many songs you sing about King Billy or Bobby Sands, the hatred might even send you down the way.
Good healthy banter died with Rangers and The Old Firm brand in 2012, one look on social media and forums shows the disgusting levels "banter" ends up.}

Holy Jaysus Father Mark!

{Ed007's Note - One of my favourite hymns since I was a kid Besty and got me through some hard times. Compare that verse to both our localised interpretation of WATP?

5.) 03 Aug 2022 23:58:32
The only reason I'm interested in them right now is due to the fact that if they don't get through there home tie against union it means that we get more CL money as we don't have to split the tv money with them.

6.) 04 Aug 2022 07:28:41
I think you will find when it's picking on rangers time it's on the SPFL that's why it's there.
So do T go on that one.
This one is for celtic.
Its just banter in most of the cases. But that line does get crossed.

9.) 04 Aug 2022 08:26:48
JfP that's why this is just about the only sports thing I read now days I have enough stuff to keep my old mind occupied without thinking g of them H H.

10.) 04 Aug 2022 10:07:04
I don’t give a toss who they sign I worry about us. We do our stuff and leave the go cheap and hope, combined with our previous recruitment of an endless line of players who were crap in the past, we will do them. Many people who aren't Catholics are as much a Celtic fan as any of us who were. I’ve known plenty and if anybody had attempted to question how much they loved the team then it wouldn’t end well. I am an atheist, but a Catholic one ;) , still my tribe no mattter how much I don’t believe in any god, all 10,000 of them.

I do love to noise the Sevco fans with truth. They are s hit and if they can’t see it, I love to point it out.

11.) 04 Aug 2022 10:45:48
@magic pole.
Good Post. You wrote it better than ever could.
I go on the SPFL page to have cracks with. But let's be honest they wil read it there.
None of my posts get put on there page anymore I wonder why. HH.

12.) 04 Aug 2022 06:21:57
spot on mark christ teachings is how ever one should live and if they did live by them this world would be a great place.

{Ed007's Note - You know it brother ?

13.) 04 Aug 2022 10:14:42
I'm sorry, but I have no shame in saying that I revel in their state of 'Anger, Everyone's against us, delusion, financial catastrophe' etc. Make no mistake. why do I hate them so much? . because they HATE me! I am not a stupid guy, blinkered or bigoted. I'm also not deaf, blind or daft.

{Ed007's Note - I agree mate, it's absolutely fine to hate a football club and their support, look at Man Utd v Liverpool and the deep seated old school rivalries in the Pub League, the rivalries in places like Italy and Turkey, just because you hate a football club/company or it's fans doesn't make you a bigot as OFFC fans claim.}

I put the wife's car in for an MOT today and knew I needed one tyre but they fitted another two the make of which I hadn't heard of before which they did in discussions with my better half but without consulting yir man here.

I'm a bit of a tyre geek eh.

Absolutely devastated tonight after doing the research I would normally do beforehand to learn that the tyre manufacturers are official sponsors of a club I'd rather not name due to my embarrassment. God forgive me.

I spoke to the parish priest and he said as it was the wife that entered the contract and I was not party to discussions I have nothing to reproach myself about and I'm free of any guilt with no need for confession and no longer tome spent in purgatory to be expected thank God.

That doesn't make me feel any better.

Apparently they are MASS produced in ITALY and headquarters are in ROME they'll no like that when they find out. They'd need to READ it though so thankfully most of them will remain blissfully ignorant.
