The talk of players wages and capping them at £2500 per month is very interesting. Why not? Maybe these dark days will make us all reconsider the celebrity culture we have embraced whatever a celebrity is and remind players especially the EPL overpaid Prima Donnas who the real hero's are namely the brave men and women in the NHS who are risking their lives to save yours and mine. Greater love hath no man than he lays down his life for his friends.

I remember wondering 20 years ago when my mother died in hospital and I saw first hand what nurses do why my accountant was being paid £100,000 for looking after my money and nurses where being paid £20,000 for looking after my mother.

Don't think I've ever had an answer to that other than it telling me where society's priorities lie.

Keep them in your prayers.

It's always the workers who pull through a tough situation. At the end of this mess who will the heroes be? The Billionaire CEOs? Or will it be the Hospital staff, care home workers, bus drivers, shelf stackers and delivery drivers?

2.) 25 Mar 2020 20:09:48
Every now and then we need something to bring us back down to earth.

3.) 26 Mar 2020 14:03:05
I totally agree with what Lou Macari says in today's paper about premier League players digging into their pockets and donating money to the fight against the virus,

4.) 27 Mar 2020 17:25:43
We also need the fans to dig deep for their teams as well as the nhs. I see Stirling Albion raised £20k in 36 hours to help save their club. Fair play.

5.) 29 Mar 2020 00:32:14
I would run through brick walls if I could for 2.5k per week. Once I earned this probably wouldn't the next time lol.

6.) 29 Mar 2020 00:47:07
I think we need to all (the whole world) : rethink things, forget about this ten in a row rubbish, itz meaningless, (that for all these ten in a row obsessed headbangers who think this ten in a row team (potentially) , is better than the Lisbon lions,

This corovirus will go on a long time, and a lot of people we know will die, well I might die and you might die, when my mother was growing up in he west of ireland, she said in every house, in every village, someone would die of TB, the more things change, the more they are the same.

7.) 29 Mar 2020 08:48:23
Cheer up man this thing will peak and life will get back to normal. and 10 iar hopefully will happen it's not pish it's about making history.

8.) 29 Mar 2020 14:47:34
The Lisbon Lions won every honour they entered in ‘67 and that will never be repeated in Scotland. The Lisbon Lions will still go down in our history as our greatest team ever because they brought the big cup home.
This current squad have had a domestic invincible season. They have won a Treble Treble and counting. They will eventually win 10 In A Row and for me personally I will put them up there with the Lisbon Lions because they will eventually be the most successful squad in our history and the most successful that I have witnessed.
If that makes me an obsessive headbanger then so be it.

{Ed007's Note - How can you put the amount of players that will have contributed to the 10 in a row in the same bracket as a team that won a EC?
The current squad don't have a Treble Treble, the current squad doesn't have 8 leagues in a row and the current squad didn't have an invincible season.}

9.) 29 Mar 2020 15:15:08
The Lisbon Lions was only 11 players and they only played one game together after Lisbon against Clyde.
There are plenty of players in that era we class as Lisbon Lions because they all deserve the credit and not only 11 players. They won 9 titles in a row and also reached 20 domestic finals out of 21 In that era.
It’s similar to when I’m referring to the squad of players who have contributed to our most successful period in our history.
I am not taking anything away from the Lisbon Lions, far from it. I am only giving praise to all the players who have got us to where we are.

{Ed007's Note - If the Lisbon Lions won 9 titles in a row why does Bertie Auld only have 6 Championship medals? So who are the plenty of players that are classed as Lisbon Lions who didn't win the EC because I've never heard that in my life before.}

10.) 29 Mar 2020 15:41:24
There are players who have medals who never played in Lisbon.
They went to all the reunions John Hughes, Joe McBride and Wullie O Neill showed me his own medal when he worked in Bairds.

{Ed007's Note - And Charlie Gallacher played in a couple of games as well so they were part of the squad that season. Who are theses plenty of players in that era that are classed as Lions, are you seriously saying that there are players out there that weren't at Celtic in season 66/67 that are classed as Lisbon Lions by people?}

11.) 29 Mar 2020 16:05:14
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.

{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.}

12.) 29 Mar 2020 16:27:53
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?}

13.) 29 Mar 2020 16:40:39
Am with you ed the lions were named because that wonderful afternoon in Lisbon and 11 players.

{Ed007's Note - Exactly, the clue's in the name.}

14.) 29 Mar 2020 18:30:47
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.

{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.}

15.) 30 Mar 2020 02:03:34
The Lisbon Lions are the players that got them to Lisbon as well the ones that played there, am I the only sane person here?

16.) 30 Mar 2020 07:52:45
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.

17.) 31 Mar 2020 12:52:20
Yes, I would have sent Brown anywhere to get him off the first team, but I would have built the team round McGregor and Christie, and Forster is vastly over rated.

18.) 04 Apr 2020 09:53:45
@aindoh are you NUTS Big Frazer is a great goalkeeper did you watch the league Cup final he single handed won us the cup.



11 Jan 2020 10:00:20
Sign a quality striker and we secure the 9. Don't and we maybe won't. The new recruitment fella has done well to date and could make himself a legend. Find another Henrik Larsson for £650,000.


1.) 11 Jan 2020 16:34:05
Or New Lubo, Nakamura or McStay.



02 Sep 2019 21:07:36
Official now Taylor signs 4 year deal.




25 Jun 2019 19:32:48
Turnbull failed medical surely not?


1.) 25 Jun 2019 19:50:34
What a total farce.

2.) 25 Jun 2019 20:44:54
The banter years! We've become a bigger laughing stock than Sevco.

3.) 25 Jun 2019 21:19:21
This is a perfect scenario for Peter Lawwell though. come start of the 2019/ 20 season or even the Winter transfer window, he can say we were heavily involved in trying to get players in. God knows how trying we have been.

4.) 25 Jun 2019 21:38:10
So the boy has a medical issue and we are a laughing stock? How? More of a laughing stock if we sign a player that has an issue surely?

5.) 25 Jun 2019 22:05:26
The whole thing has been amateurish and unprofessional if you can't see that then you're clearly blind. To the statements on Twitter, Kennedys comments, the leaked photo in a Celtic top and now it turns out he might not even pass the medical. laughing stock! If you're anyone but a Celtic fan.

6.) 26 Jun 2019 00:03:49
Why would that be bravetart. Because a player failed his medical. And they have signed about 5 free contracts.

7.) 26 Jun 2019 00:07:48
Bravetart, I agree with most of what your saying buddy but bigger laughing stock than sevco! Behave urself for godsake. this is the same sevco who have went through 5 managers in 3 season while we’ve won 9 trophies in a row! I agree that our transfer dealings are a shambles and if we know how to make an arse of it we usually do, but come on mate let’s calm down a bit eh.

8.) 26 Jun 2019 00:08:22
big hartson had an issue with his knee and failed a medical for the gers but did vert well for us.



03 Mar 2019 10:13:45
BR linked with a move for Boyata (and McGinn) is that it started? Can we expect him to come in for McGreggor, Forrest, KT or maybe Sinclair?


1.) 03 Mar 2019 10:29:27
Tbh mgregor or Tierney would never go unless they got told there off specially not with him.

2.) 03 Mar 2019 19:26:13
I’m not so sure Tierney never distanced himself from the Everton speculation with media reports suggesting he was open to the change.
Boyata will go to Leicester on a Bosman for certain.

3.) 03 Mar 2019 23:29:39
I think Boyata takes a few games to get back to form even after a short spell out through injury but when he has played a few games he is definitely a fine centre half.

4.) 04 Mar 2019 17:41:53
I think we will probably struggle to buy a better defender than Boyata, on his day he is very good player. Yes he has the odd lapse of concentration but if he didn't he would still be at city I suppose.

Where's Ed 007?


{Ed007's Note - I'm here mate, there's just not that much to talk about.}

1.) 30 Mar 2020 22:19:44
Everybody coping with the isolation. I'll be fine till the buckfast reserves run dry, then I'm going to feel it.

2.) 31 Mar 2020 12:34:03
BuckFast Reserves? Is that the orcs second team?

3.) 31 Mar 2020 14:11:16
Haha naw its my drink cabinet.

{Ed007's Note - The rumour sweeping Fairhill is that it's one bottle per person at the shops and that cash n carry stocks are running low - this $hit just got serious!}

4.) 31 Mar 2020 15:47:50
dont ed. its a serious subject close to my heart and id rather you didn't take it lightly. if the tonic runs out ill have to actually deal with all of this for reals.

{Ed007's Note - I'm serious, Gerry.}



13 Mar 2020 17:06:52
Why did they cancel the feckn game it's not as if we were going to be kissing and feckn cuddling them.




08 Mar 2020 10:49:30
I think the criticism of Taylor is harsh. He'd a tidy game yesterday and hopefully just needs time to grow into the jersey plus he had big boots to fill. As a minimum he deserves our backing and the chance to prove himself. He's the best defensive option at left back we've got and I'd play him at Ibronx before either Hayes or Boli. Just my opinion which as they say is what it's all about. I also thought Brown was worthy of MOTM if Griffiths hadn't scored a hat-trick. What a time for him to hit form. It would be nice to see him rattling one in against the Klan after the disgusting songs they sung about him when he was unwell. I'm sure Leigh hasn't forgot either. Anyway I thought Ross County were worth a wee tenner at 10/ 1 today. Stevie G is here for 10 in a row.


1.) 08 Mar 2020 11:04:50
We need a new LB in the summer👍.

2.) 08 Mar 2020 11:12:08
Spot on mate Taylor is our best option. and I'd love wee griff to hit the winner. that really would be a beautiful Sunday.

3.) 08 Mar 2020 11:23:34
in celtic career tierney got 23 assists avg 5,75 per season . taylor only has 5, the bhoys is pish right enough,

4.) 08 Mar 2020 11:41:29
Hope you win your bet JFP.
Thank goodness it's not us in the gutter.

5.) 08 Mar 2020 12:20:28
Don't want to be slating Taylor but his lack of pace took the sting out of a number of attacks yesterday because the ball went wide to his Feet rather than the space in behind for him to run on to. If he was quicker he'd be a great player as he delivers a mean cross at times.

6.) 08 Mar 2020 12:47:33
They'll be building him up and if he adds the strength he should get a bit quicker.



04 Mar 2020 22:01:37
Not only did we drop points and extend our lead tonight but the mate and M77 are closed resulting in long delays home from Ibrox. Happy Days. ☘️.


1.) 04 Mar 2020 22:36:31
Yet another gift from the new Club, oh and they are apparently getting their new shirts made by Macron!

2.) 04 Mar 2020 22:43:45
JFP1888 much as I love them to suffer, both motorways are closed due to a serious road crash.

3.) 04 Mar 2020 22:47:53

4.) 05 Mar 2020 07:52:47
Chinks I thought it was roadworks I wouldn’t wish that on any man.



24 Feb 2020 20:55:54
Ajer has showed his class and potential in the last few games. It would be good to find another one at that price. We could have Ajer. B and Ajer. A: Just a thought like Ken. ☘️.


1.) 25 Feb 2020 06:33:36
JFP there is a 16 year old Norwegian, Fyeld I think his name playing for the reserves and is very highly rated. He played yesterday. Came from Rosenberg, maybe he's the next Ajer mate. They build them big in viking land!

2.) 25 Feb 2020 13:40:43
Hjelde if it's the one I'm thinking. Supposed to be a very good prospect.

Not in the same league. The reasons Feyeonord, Celtic, Barcelona and Man Utd which are also the reasons he’s the greatest ever Celt. It’s all about open onions.
