Official now Taylor signs 4 year deal.

Turnbull failed medical surely not?

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.

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?

JFP1888

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.


 

 

14 Jan 2019 20:51:12
No to James McCarthy and just no to Ya Ya Toure. A 35 year old midfielder is a bigger gamble than a 36 year old striker.

JFP1888

1.) 15 Jan 2019 01:46:06
Sorry JFP, I would love McCarthy to sign, even if it was only for 6 months.


 

 

12 Jan 2019 18:24:52
Bit disappointed if as is being suggested there are no more signings in this transfer window. While Bayo and Weah are undoubtedly exciting prospects that's what they are. Prospects. I'm fine with that in essence and think we are well covered for rest of season in central defense.

However would have liked us to bring in an experienced proven striker even one at the latter stages of his career. Dare I say it I would have been happy if we'd signed Defoe. I know BR and the clubs preference is to nurture and develop young talent but I think a blend of youth and experience has a lot to be said for it.

We'd have known what we were getting which would have removed some of the concerns about unknown quantities up front irrespective of their potential going into the remainder of the season. Just my thoughts fellow TIMS.

JFP1888

1.) 12 Jan 2019 18:46:23
Defoe? really! Never I would always want a young player instead of over the hill people coming for a swansong, I never liked these signings and i did not believe they helped improved the team long term. In fact i always believed that the manager in these signings was stating his intention to leave.
I would be happy with someone like Jeffery Brumma coming in and Boyata moving out in this window, Then another CH and RB brought in the summer.


2.) 12 Jan 2019 18:56:21
BR never said there will be no more signings he said there will not be a marquee signing.


3.) 12 Jan 2019 19:19:40
I'm not sure we are well covered in defence jfp, we need to plan for our cb pairing leaving, boyata as far as I'm concerned should never be near the first team if he is leaving in the summer, he should never have got back in the team in the first place but that's another days work. What happens if someone wants to buy benkovic can Leicester sell him or do they need to wait till the loan is up? The way he's been playing I think there'll be clubs sniffing about him. If we lost 2 cb's we must replace them.


4.) 12 Jan 2019 21:24:05
Jfp stop stressing bud are we really scared of that lot c'mon reality check bhoys sort the away form out and we will win the league at a canter. New bhoys signed will be hungry and can only be good for competition for places. Defoe? I was concerned when it was laudrup de boer etc in their prime but Defoe how did it come to that 🙈.


5.) 12 Jan 2019 21:25:07
Steph I’ve had a couple and prob best I don’t get on the subject of that rat Boyata 😏.


6.) 12 Jan 2019 21:30:31
Need to stop believing what the SMSM keep spewing.
There won't be any £8-9 million signings but BR never said we won't sign another player.
We will bring in another 2 or 3 players.


7.) 12 Jan 2019 22:04:53
Ffs panic stations!

Still plenty of time to do business and nobody said there wouldn't be.

Defoe is finished, its beginning to look like The rangers were his only option. He has rapidly declined and personally i think he will struggle to get a game in front of kyle lafferty he is that bad. Not even a league 1 side down south put an offer in.


8.) 12 Jan 2019 22:35:36
He is on silly money overpaid. imo but still think he will do ok.


9.) 12 Jan 2019 23:40:25
Phil have u not heard he knocked back English sides to become a zombie? Aye right.


10.) 13 Jan 2019 02:00:13
Personally think Defoe will actually not be that bad a signing for them the chances Morelos misses he will put them away, but also the track record of older players coming to Scotland thinking it will be a walk over aren’t that good so will need to wait and see . But to our signings I genuinely think our signings are young and hungry and willing prove there worth but I think there’s a few panty wetters in here desperately trying to drag us down. Fingers crossed a few more new faces come in to freshen things up as I think a few will leave on loan .


11.) 13 Jan 2019 11:13:41
Boyata is definitely leaving at the latest the end of the season. Benkovic will also return to Leicester aswell. Therefore it’s imperative that we sign a new CB now. Don’t want to wait until Champs league qualifiers and hope the new guy settles instantly.
I know there’s less availability in this window but there are still good players available. What happens once Boyata signs pre contract elsewhere if club decide to keep him till end of season if he picks up niggling injuries he won’t want to risk himself and personally once a player has committed future to other club I for one don’t want him playing for us.
Benkovic can as we know be recalled and if they sell McGuire to Man U, sack manager or 1 of their CB gets injured he can be recalled.
Everywhere else except RB seems to be strong enough to still win league but for me CB and RB must be addressed in this window.
Iv no doubt we will sign players for both positions I hope they are permanent signings with experience, still got 18 days to sort it, I’m just surprised Iv not heard us linked with any CB’s really in tabloids.
Rodgers keeps stating he felt he needed more in final 3rd and is happy with new acquisitions but hasn’t mentioned much about the need to significantly strengthen at the back.


12.) 13 Jan 2019 12:12:44
Like it or not we are in a title race. I understand people saying if we sort our away form out we will be grand, however I haven't seen anything so far this season to suggest it's about to suddenly change. My preference in this window would have been tried and tested experience, we have plenty of young projects already and with youth comes inconsistency. Don't blow it Brendan.

So the poppy saga continues for another year. We'll not go into the rights and wrongs of the Green Brigades protest or the stadium booing them the Scottish MSSM appear to have that covered. But here's my three questions and I was there yesterday. The GB obviously knew about the planned two minutes silence personally I didn't but here goes. (1) Does Celtic normally have a two minute silence on Remembrance Sunday I certainly don't remember one recently if at all? (2) Why did the announcer very deliberately highlight that it was in remembrance of those who fell in WW1 and WW2 'and in subsequent conflicts' which we know includes the atrocities committed by the British in the north of Ireland and which many find offensive and (3) what motivated the club rightly or wrongly to set us up for another potential embarrassment if that's how you see in that the GBs protest was or wasn't in poor taste.

JFP1888

{Ed007's Note - It wasn't just the GB though, there were fans from other sections that stayed outside and there were more than the GB singing the song.}


1.) 11 Nov 2019 19:05:12
Stood in the concourse was finishing my pie. Honest.


2.) 11 Nov 2019 19:15:14
Ed I’m very deliberately not expressing any opinion as I’m genuinely interested in hearing the (mixed) thoughts of you and my fellow Celtic supporters. However I must take issue in that there was nobody missing that returned to their seats in my section although a few turned their backs and nobody anywhere near me sang the song which was roundly booed. I’m genuinely intrigued by the obvious spilt in the supports opinion and by the club’s actions to be honest.

{Ed007's Note - My nephew said there were a lot of standing on the concourse in the Jock Stein and the other said there was a few in the South Stand, there's pictures on social media showing the difference in empty seats before/after.
I'll take your word for it that nobody near you sang the song - maybe they were drowned out by the booing - but there were more than the GB section singing it according to people there and social media content.
I've had my say on the poppy stuff every year on here, and this is my testimonial year, so I'm not going into it all again. Have a read at THIS, particularly the part the Daily Mail's campaign in 2008 or 2009 against clubs like Man Utd and Liverpool who refused to wear poppies, and now by some strange quirk of fate the pages are no longer available.}


3.) 11 Nov 2019 19:22:02
The whole poppy thing is getting really boring and tedious now. The "problems" only started when the Rangers tried to politicise it and turn it into an agenda that suited there narrative and diverted everybody's attention, especially there own fans, away from their basket case of a club and try and show others up in a bad light. They will be the ones to call the phone ins and write on social media about how bad we are etc etc. but they don't want to talk about all the missing poppy money from a few year back!
Who cares if you observe the silence or not. I certainly don't care n respect everyone's choice.


4.) 11 Nov 2019 20:04:27
A very good article Ed. Yet I very much doubt even The Independent fully understand the significance of the ‘help our heroes’ displays at Ibrox despite their obvious dig at the Govan patriots for ‘even firing a a cannon on the park’. To be honest I’m more confused by the actions of the club and our fellow supporters than I am by the actions of the GB who’s position at least I understand. Thanks Ed. 👍.

{Ed007's Note - The Club needs to be seen to do something publicly to appease the poppy police hence the minutes silence but I will say this, the money the Club give Poppy Scotland every year at this time helps old soldiers more than any right wing jingoistic display at Ibrox where a bucket collection at a sold out stadium raised £4,837, about 10p a head.}

The comedy news reporter (Jonathon Pie) sketch on YouTube sums it all up in 2 minutes. Check him out. He's a good laugh doing his videos about politicians Brexit Trump and more.


6.) 11 Nov 2019 20:27:41
JFP. I remember 3 or 4 years ago there was a silence at a game on the same weekend. I think that a lot of the time we are away from home on remembrance Sunday so it doesn't happen every year.
From what I could hear the announcer asked us to remember those who died in all conflicts then went on to list the names of the Celtic players who had died in the first world war.
In my opinion the whole issue has been hijacked by people who have turned this time of the year into a time for backing the military rather than remembering the ordinary men and women who died through no fault of their own.
I would like to see these ceremonies taken out of football grounds and go back to letting people remember their loved ones in their own way, either by having services at local war memorials or churches. I don't see what it has to do with football.

{Ed007's Note - 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍


7.) 11 Nov 2019 20:41:06
Agreed Gerry 👍 If there is no place in football for politics then that premise must be upheld across the board and not just applied when the opinion expressed doesn’t reflect the views of the established.


8.) 11 Nov 2019 21:05:15
JFP You are spot on I was in the forces and fought proudly for my country But it's up to individuals what they do With Servco it makes me sick how they try to show how good they are in supporting their country.


9.) 11 Nov 2019 21:27:39
Tony it would fit them better to pay their taxes and you’d think they’d do better than £4k from a full stadium collection as Ed highlighted. My understanding is that Celtic’s contribution to Poppy Scotland is more generous than any other club. We all know what the Ibrox displays are about the Parachute Regiment don’t get pride of place for no reason.


10.) 11 Nov 2019 21:46:31
I was there as well yesterday lads.
The announcer lad mention 3/4 names as well and reinforced what the silence was for. I never heard a peep when the silence was on.
I also was very nieve as I wondered where the crowd was at GB AREA. I just thought they must run late. Then few mins later I looked over it was packed. Each to there own lads they could have chosen to sing make noises etc. they chose to come in after the two mins. Fair play it's a personal thing to each individual they have there reasons and made there point without doing anything.


11.) 11 Nov 2019 23:07:49
I’m a veteran and the best place for showing respect is at the many war memorials around the nation and not at a football match. What the Rangers done a couple of weeks back was embarrassing. How many people have seen field guns been set off at war memorials on Remembrance Sunday. (None is my best guess) .


12.) 12 Nov 2019 08:27:53
Check out Damien Quinn’s James McLean song brilliant.


13.) 12 Nov 2019 08:40:11
It was a total mockery ged and the Sevco infested media chose not to mention the hypocracy and theatrics of it.
As f as I was aware they only use such equipment when it's one o'clock in Embra or a royal salute?


14.) 12 Nov 2019 09:47:50
The way that Sevco try to hijack the whole Remembrance Day is a total embarrassment. i believe the commentator on Sevco TV even called it Remembrance Sunday match. they even move the date to suit them being at home. I am sure there will be someone in the fixtures department at the SPFL being disciplined for them not being at home on the proper Remembrance Sunday.

As usual the media will make a big deal about the GB and others not being in the stadium during the silence, personally I think that it was the best thing to do, ensuring that the club weren't embarrassed by any shouting etc. and surely the whole point of the Remembrance Silence is to remember the brave men and women who gave up their lives so that we all have the ability to make the choices we do today, this includes participating in the silence etc. I proudly wore my poppy on Sunday but did not question others that did not wear one.


15.) 12 Nov 2019 11:22:47
According to Sevco and the medias logic then any Sevco fan who enters Ibrox without a scarf is insulting the team.
They are hell bent on turning the memory of ordinary men and women who through no fault of their own were forced to sacrifice themselves, into a propaganda exercise for the military and a nasty right wing government that we have been saddled with.
I wonder how many of these clowns actually went to a remembrance service, or to church on Sunday to remember the war dead, my guess would be very few.


16.) 12 Nov 2019 13:26:54
When Ed said they had a bucket collection and they only raised 4 grand I thought he was meaning at the Livingston game at the weekend.50000 at a Home game so surely it was more than that? Or it looks like some of them have pocketed the money. What an embarrassment they are.

{Ed007's Note -


17.) 13 Nov 2019 11:51:09
Say there were 48,000 at least for that home game - so that would work out at 10 pence a head. No need to add anything else; apart from how idiotic and embarrassing the whole charade makes them look - and they can't see it lol.

I think Celtic should have declined tickets for tonight's game trouble was on the cards. Nothing absolutely nothing justifies or is worth being stabbed. God forbid but somebody could lose their life tonight these characters are the dregs of society which was evident by their fascist salutes in Glasgow. I think Celtic has missed a trick to protect our own. I hope and pray that all who've travelled tonight make it home safe.

I couldn't make it last night due to work commitments. How did the Taylor laddie look? Did he play 90 minutes?

JFP1888

1.) 31 Oct 2019 20:34:01
Looked competent and willing considering his lack of game time wasn’t tested defensively but all in all decent debut.


2.) 31 Oct 2019 20:50:45
not to bad did well caught out of position few times that's to be expected tho now lennys new recruits must defend, attack and cross its a big ask as he is naturally just a defender.
hope it works out for him.

Christie for me.


3.) 25 Oct 2019 07:45:50
Agree broonie was immense mate but for me Ryan Christie was the main man last nite! Goal and an assist and ran himself into the ground! Guys transformation is nothing short of remarkable!


4.) 25 Oct 2019 08:16:49
A feel he's a bit lazy 🤣🤣.


5.) 25 Oct 2019 09:03:22
How often do wee mention Ryan Christie now guys energy aggression power is unreal even the aggression he strikes a ball with unlucky not to score a rocket the wee man.


6.) 25 Oct 2019 10:46:21
Christie for me. Runs himself into the ground every game.

Full in the panting heart of Rome,
Beneath the apostles crowning dome,
From pilgrims' lips that kiss the ground,
Breathes in all tongues only one sound:

Chorus:

’God bless our Mope, the great, the good ‘
’God bless our Mope, the great, the good. '

The golden roof, the marble walls,
The Vatican's majestic halls,
The note redouble, till it fills
With echoes sweet the seven hills:

Chorus


’God bless our Mope, the great, the good. '
‘God bless our Mope, the great, the good. '
