Just saw that Danny Mandriou lis being linked and that it's an Ange pick. He is the best attacking midfielder we have in Ireland, was for me nearly their PoY in a very good Shams team who ran away with the league.
This is the best we have and I think he could be directly first team material.


1.) 16 Nov 2021 13:30:45
As I don't see many L. O. I games Mal, I cannot comment on specific players therefore I would always trust your knowledge on this front.

Like many supporters the thought of an Irish player signing for Celtic and playing well in the first team is a wee bit special.

The issue is they seem to be few and far between lately but fingers ? if we go after him.

My mate from Dublin saying he`s not good enough .

3.) 18 Nov 2021 07:11:23
He might be a Bohs fan Fred ? ?.

Eddy at Palace having medical, thank F--.


1.) 30 Aug 2021 20:42:21
A lot of rumours on twitter saying deal done more or less.

2.) 30 Aug 2021 21:27:23
Deep joy thank the good lord 🙏.

3.) 30 Aug 2021 22:15:49
Oh Malika, I hope that's the case - Sunday was the final straw.

4.) 30 Aug 2021 22:57:18
Good money reportedly coming in for Eddy and Christie 💸.



09 Aug 2021 10:14:26
Just reading post match interview from Liam Scales, another defender who was on the score sheet yesterday, he says there is interest which is now in the public domain, so he expects to move.
Southampton Norwich and us have all made bids.


1.) 09 Aug 2021 12:05:19
Wants game time. Hopefully could offer him that.

2.) 09 Aug 2021 14:42:08
Is he a lb or cb?

3.) 09 Aug 2021 15:03:05
He does both, started at cb for UCD then mixing it according to formation.



08 Aug 2021 09:51:39
Brighton have made an offer of 22m for Arsenal's Eddie Nketiah, that's the only eddy their signing, hope we're not going to get stuck with the French man.


1.) 08 Aug 2021 11:36:05
If he got back to playing football for the club and trying, then you'd definitely keep him.

2.) 08 Aug 2021 12:04:35
That’s a big if mally, if he can’t get out of second gear in champions league qualifiers or derby games against our bitter rivals forget about him trying in Dingwall or Livingston, hope potential buyers watch more France u21 than Celtic.



05 May 2021 13:48:44
Fergal Harkin and Roy Keane have not gone away you know.
Just keeping everybody in the picture and if your a betting person, check the odds and get your money down, I would be quick though.


1.) 05 May 2021 14:14:43
If your as quick as the board you'll be fine 🙂.

2.) 05 May 2021 16:16:55
No so Fast Mally 😂 My info is Good.

3.) 05 May 2021 16:30:19
7/ 1 for Keane. Hope it's not him but if it is why the delay.

4.) 05 May 2021 17:28:29
I took Keane at 16/ 1 when Lennon left. I'd prefer him to Howe. With the right backroom team it could be a masterstroke.

5.) 05 May 2021 18:15:18
Eddie Howe has already been given the nod. Trust me. HH.

6.) 05 May 2021 19:03:20
But did he nod back besty? 😂 Maybe, Maybe Not.

7.) 05 May 2021 19:25:49
Hope your right Besty - Keane certainly ain’t my preference.

8.) 05 May 2021 20:00:13
Roy Keane a masterstoke.

Deary me just when I thought the season couldn’t get any worse.

There is some view fae this roof.

9.) 05 May 2021 20:47:10
If we are waiting for the back room staff at Bournemouth to be finished then if they keep winning it will be the end of May before Howe is announced.

3 more weeks of Celtic silence would drive you mad.

10.) 05 May 2021 20:55:58
Malika -- he did. HH.

11.) 05 May 2021 21:01:56
I will Thelma and Louise it with you JFP if it comes to pass.

12.) 05 May 2021 21:44:36
All about opinions lads.

I don't think Howe has the mentality to be Celtic manager. My fear is Mowbray all over again.

13.) 05 May 2021 22:00:30
thought it was obvious to most that howe has the job.

14.) 06 May 2021 09:51:27
Del Bhoy if Howe hasn’t got the mentality then who has i your opinion?

Only ask out of curiosity.

15.) 06 May 2021 09:59:23
I'm starting to think that about Howe also Del Bhoy.
I really hope I'm wrong.

16.) 06 May 2021 11:45:08
JFP 😄🤣😂.

17.) 06 May 2021 13:46:05
Kev T2, if it were up to me I'd shortlist:

Jindrich Trpisovsky.
David Moyes.
Phillip Cocu.

That would be my 1st, 2nd 3rd choice in that order.

I believe all are realistic targets and would consider us.

If it was Keane or Howe though I'd personally prefer Keane with the right backroom team.

18.) 06 May 2021 20:38:43
You think David moyes is a realistic target after the season he’s had lol?

19.) 07 May 2021 08:11:46

Why not?

20.) 07 May 2021 10:57:39
I am hoping fergal hasn't went away. Keane has no chance.

21.) 07 May 2021 10:59:08
Anyone that wants keane does not want him for football reasons. The guy is chronic and no one in their right mind wants to touch him.

22.) 07 May 2021 15:44:00
Hmmmm Del Boy I wonder why not? Wages he’s on, bigger transfer kitty with West Ham and maybe champions league football for them next season.

23.) 07 May 2021 17:47:29
Del Bhoy
Who do you think would be Keane's backroom staff in this Eutopia you dream of?
Or perhaps more accurately, what would their roles be?
Here are a few necessary skills required, maybe you can put names to the roles? :

1) Someone to advise him on how not to be an arrogant fekker
2) Someone to tell him the game has moved on and his bully boy tactics won't work
3) Someone to advise him on how not to be an arrogant fekker
4) Someone to explain to him that although he was a terrific player he has failed overall as a manager
5) Someone to advise him on how not to be an arrogant fekker


24.) 08 May 2021 02:19:39

Bigger transfer budget - Of course its the EPL, that'sa given.

Bigger wages - If DD wanted him, he could match or better his salary with ease. West Hams best season in years, you'd think the owners would be throwing everything at him to sign a new long term deal. That hasn't materialised. I thought Moyes was very coy about his future stating the decision of the trigger of another year in his contract is his choice. Maybe he's considering other options or maybe its a tactic in negotiating a new deal. Who knows?

Champions League Football - He can have that year in year out with Celtic if he is a success. Its been one of our biggest pitfalls over the years and it should certainly be an expectation from the board that the new manager at least qualifys for the group stages on a more regular basis. I don't think West Ham will finish 4th this year and I certainly don't think they will be challenging for it next year or the season after.


I'm not sure if you have jumped the gun and not read the full thread.

Roy Keane would not be my number one choice for the role. He probably wouldn't get in my top 5. there's no dreaming of any Eutopia here.

I have simply stated if it was between Roy Keane or Eddie Howe for the role I think Keane would be the better choice, especially if the backroom team was right.

Since you have asked the question how about Harkin DOF, Keane Manager, Maresca No.2 and an older head like John Robertson as a coach as well. Harkin and Keane will be well aware of the best coaches, scouts, sports scientists etc at City or Utd or anywhere down south in fact that may be within our reach.

Compared to Eddie Howe, Stephen Purches and Stephen Fletcher I'd take the above team of serial winners any day of the week. that's a good enough football reason for me.

If its Eddie Howe he will 100% get my backing and support. My gut feeling is that he is a massive gamble. I think Howe and his team will get the culture shock of their lives when they realise the intensity and scrutiny they will come under when they are expected to win every game domestically. Keane would be better equipped to handle that side of it along with the main stream media up here as well.

Don't be afraid of a bit of arrogance. Its not done the likes of Klopp, Pep, Jose, Conte or even Rodgers any harm over the years. In fact name me one successful manager in the past 15 years who isn't an arrogant b*****d.

As said previously, its all about opinions lads.

Nice one big. D ?.



26 Sep 2021 17:39:18
Time for change before it's too late.
The plan was very obvious from last season, take the Man City group philosophy and bring the manager and Fergal Harkin as DoF.
They delivered on 50% and messed up. This manager is no good without direction.
He has no experience of delivering in this standard and no idea on how the game is played at a decent level in Europe. Attack attack football is achieved by having a budget way beyond what we have, sort it now before we really become a joke.
We have payed good money for people who won't make the grade. We need to act very quickly before it all caves in on top of us.
I am not a self opionated poster, just a supporter who gives a ****.


1.) 26 Sep 2021 18:09:29
You want rid of ange?

2.) 26 Sep 2021 18:28:54
The new squad has taken a real body-blow with injuries and we are stuck between a rock and a very hard place as any confidence and composure the players had after the very convincing home wins has now evaporated with a lack of leadership on and off the pitch.
Ange is not only new to serious European competition, he has zero experience of SPFL opponents and that should be where his allocated assistants should be strongly advising and preparing him and the players, but all I see is an arms-folded lonely manager and very little communication, coaching or tactical dialogue?
The players that are fit - for all their experience and quality, seem to have lost the ability to find a Celtic jersey with a pass when it really matters several are really struggling like Ajeti, Abada and James McCarthy - who looks right out of touch. While Turnbull/ Rogic are too inconsistent without Cal-Mac beside them.
Another obvious problem is because of injuries, we have a real lack of decent quality, or experience on the bench to improve the situation (THe vast majority being defensive-minded (. Bitton has been done for a while but I have been really disappointed with Soro and finally understand why NL was so reluctant to play him. October will bring one of the most difficult array of fixtures and hopefully things will pick up when players return; but in the meantime I'm back to worrying before games rather than expecting and although we certainly have to add to the squad in January, what position will we be in by that time? Answers on a post (card) .

3.) 26 Sep 2021 18:54:17
@DRB. the amateurish type of management has to stop quickly.
Injuries have to be factored in but I don’t believe we have done enough to make the squad competitive.
We should lose this manager before Halloween, I make no suggestions as to who we can replace him with, only that whoever it is should know SPL and European football and see what it takes to grind out results.
We have no chance of winning the league if we continue like this for the next 3/ 4 weeks. If we don’t win the league this year then there is permanent damage done to the club.

4.) 26 Sep 2021 19:12:23
Is ange the aussie caxinha watching him tooday can't help but believe if you take away the hype and spin surrounding him he's another ronny roar appointment nice guy but way way out of his depts won't see out the season i honestly believe.

5.) 26 Sep 2021 19:25:48
OAB2, your post (IMHO) - sums up the present situation to a tee.

None of us (as far I know) can see into the future, if we could we'd have more cash than Terry Thomas!

Yeah, this is difficult but Ange needs all our support not a P45 after 7 league games!

Serious question for anyone who cares to answer it;-

* after Eddie Howe led our board a merry dance and told them to feck off at the last minute - what we're your expectations for this season?

6.) 26 Sep 2021 19:31:26
Pitchforks already? A lot of fickle fans. It takes time to gel about 12 players into a rebuild. Yes were dissatisfied or disappointed or p. ed off or whatever but patience is required. We know time isn't on our side and Anges honeymoon period is over but get a fecking grip with the get rid attitude. Orc behaviour! I know we will come good with a fit squad firing on all cylinders.6 points behind is a kind of a bonus as Sevco would have been heading out of sight.

7.) 26 Sep 2021 19:31:54
Didn't Terry Thomas die a pauper?

8.) 26 Sep 2021 19:39:17
DRB, you're absolutely correct - he did.
On here however, when I reference TT, I'm actually talking about DD.

9.) 26 Sep 2021 19:48:41
@DRB, aye he did, but he had a lot of great years in Ibiza ? ?
We need to shift this manager out asap, sorry Pedro, I normally agree with your posts but his time is up. We banked on Howe, but we also spent a long time with Roy Keane. I rather have that man right now.
I think this manager is already under pressure and might walk.
Pud. I am not fickle, just straightforward.

10.) 26 Sep 2021 19:56:53
Why does someone have to be "the new" someone else?
Ange is the new Caxinha, Mccarthy the new Duffy. Absolute rubbish. Ange has been here 3 months and we've been very unlucky with injuries. Now I'm seeing posts wanting him out. 3 months he's had . Get behind him and the team, we're only 6 points behind.

11.) 26 Sep 2021 20:19:49
Mal re Ibiza ???

We're all hurting and have been since, oh, last November (ish) .
I know from your posts you're not fickle, far from it, but I believe Ange deserves a chance and our support.

There's plenty of games and time to put together a run up until the January window, bring in another 3 or 4 players, and go all out for the title.

Whatever happens Mal, I'm glad there's at least one person on here that normally agrees with my posts ?.

12.) 26 Sep 2021 21:26:54

15.) 27 Sep 2021 00:45:00
Harsh Malika we are in this position due to the transition phase. It's something we need to accept that it takes time to gel. We are missing key players. Regardless our squad depth isn't great at the moment. Ange took Australia to their first Asian cup win. That would of had better players than the SPL teams. He done well with brisbane and yokohama. It's arrogance that we don't recognise these teams as we've found there is some decent players and teams there. I think he has got a decent few players and is building something he needs time. Again 6 points is recoverable we just need to recover it soon.



31 Aug 2021 23:39:25
3 Betrayers off the books in 1 day, doesn't really matter what we got in, but they are decent, good riddance to bad rubbish, we can afford a couple of decent free transfers now.


1.) 31 Aug 2021 23:51:29
What's out there Mal? We never seem to tap into free ageñt market.



31 Aug 2021 21:48:06
No Centre back yet lads, I think that we must have an eye on somebody, maybe a free transfer list person, a signing is looking bleak given the time left.


1.) 31 Aug 2021 21:56:23
I think Celtic need another striker.
It would be great if our new signing hits the ground running but I don’t think he’s played any games this season and he will probably need time to get up to speed.
That leaves us with Kyogo and Ajeti.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 22:04:00
If Ajeti stays, maybe there is a chance he could turn his career under Postecoglu.

3.) 31 Aug 2021 22:19:59
Has it ever entered anyone's mind that Ange is happy enough with what we have at the back for the time being?
Considering we have spent 20m if he was that desperate for another CB I'm sure he would have brought one in, personally I think he will wait till January and bring someone in from Japan. It also gives is a chance to develop our own younger guy's if need be, he certainly seems to be relaxed about the situation.

4.) 31 Aug 2021 22:39:09
Ange mentioned last week Celtic needed another CB.
That’s why I would be surprised if we didn’t bring in another defender.



31 Aug 2021 20:10:11
Christie go right to Bournemouth, thank god for that, a real traitor, out the door, hope his daddy is happy, touting him about the world and now he is moving for 3 k a week more. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Now the manager can focus on another position which needs attention.


1.) 31 Aug 2021 20:47:37
Its a bit of a strange transfer. A player with his ego I would of thought would of chose Burnley in EPL over Bournemouth.

2.) 31 Aug 2021 20:55:40
Maybe fancies the surfer life.

3.) 31 Aug 2021 20:58:37
**** him, I posted on here almost 2 years ago that a friend of mine who worked for a club in Saudi, he’s gone now to IPL, that they had recieved a dvd from his dad touting him and asking 50 k a week tax free, . Michael. Dundee confirmed this a few months ago saying that al hilal, had made an offer for him He listens to his gobrubbish da and has betrayed us. Good luck to him, hope he can afford his fish an chips sitting on the sand in Bournemouth and dreaming of the champions league.

4.) 31 Aug 2021 21:08:39

5.) 31 Aug 2021 21:42:54

Obviously chose Bournemouth to be closer to his buddy the Hair along the road in Southampton.

7.) 31 Aug 2021 22:14:15
😂 😂 royjac, did they play in the same position 😂.

8.) 31 Aug 2021 22:28:45
Is that right about him only managing 3k more wages? If so then what a strange move indeed, for him, but perfect for us. Couldn't care where he's gone. He has been better lately but purely shop window stuff it would seem. I too am so sick fed up of his row Z shots. Shocking shooting to goals ratio for a player in his position. I never liked the guy after Ronnie subbed him THAT time, but Kris Commons would have scored a barrowload off the chances Christie has sent into orbit in his time here.

9.) 31 Aug 2021 22:48:28
All these daft wee flicks and shots fae miles oot just tae end up at feckin Bournemouth in the Championship, that's class banter😂😂.

I think it’s going to get complicated. The general opinion I think is that we want Jota and CCV, that’s around 13/ 14 million if rumors on valuation are correct. The question on that is When do we buy? Do we have the proper loan deals in place, and personal terms agreed, and finalize later in the season, ie after we win the league and we have CL football and 30/ 40 million guaranteed income from it. We can then spend in January on strengthening what we are missing now.
I don’t think the board will santion the spend to do both in January, the risk of course is that Jota and CCV get enticed by big personal terms elsewhere and become unaffordable to us.

The Green Brigade deserve great credit for bringing this to our attention, and in organizing a number of recognized supporters groups to protest at this proposed scandal.
It is a disgrace that members of our board are supporting this appointment. A man who has persecuted 100’s of our support base, developed and implemented policy that was directly aimed against our fans. It’s unthinkable that this establishment figure should even be associated with this great club. These old school Tories should be gone from us.
