Just posting what I've been told btw don't before I'm hounded I've been told Lennon has been sacked and will be announced first thing in the morning.


1.) 15 Jan 2021 09:36:43
Think that was a fake rumour started on twitter.

2.) 15 Jan 2021 12:41:53
The rumour was started from an account with the name Stephen McGowan.
But it was mistaken for the journalist with the same name.

3.) 15 Jan 2021 14:31:47
That isn't going to happen. I am more concerned that it's 15 days I to the window and we still haven't moved for at least one CB. probably haven't found one at £3m who will be loaned out in the summer. Absolutely pathetic. But, it's the way we roll.

4.) 15 Jan 2021 17:58:42
I think the board will privately have written off the league in the same way any logical Celtic fan has. Lennon will keep his job until the summer. I won’t be surprised if he’s been told that winning the cup, win atleast one derby and getting the deficit to single digits will see him given another year.
Clearly has a good relationship with Lawwell, and will always be a yes man to him. That’s what Lawwell wants in a manager. assuming he’s still in charge next year (which I suspect he will be) .

5.) 15 Jan 2021 21:39:20
Degsy think you are spot on
Also think the board are content to lose the league as long as the south sliders are beaten a few times a year, that did and probably still satisfies a portion of the support
I don’t see the desire at board level to challenge at Europe CL level. it isn’t business sense for them when the costs to compete and the cost benefits are compared. they will still sell season tickets either way. Appreciate this isn’t the fans view. this is the inherent problem, with the south sliders absense and required re build there should have been no way the gap could have been closed. A decision was made IMO at board level to do just enough to stay ahead, the south sliders were underestimated and investment was withheld. Correcting this slide and reversing it would take bottle both in financial terms and personnel decisions. do the board have that bottle, cos the sliders are only going to get better, I don’t know. The fan base wish they had but based on the decisions made in the past I doubt it.

6.) 16 Jan 2021 08:44:04
I would rather us just sack Lennon now. Get rid of all the players who don’t want to be here like edouard, Christie, ntcham and others now and start building. But the thing that’s going to happen is that Lennon will get sacked in the summer all them players will leave which will give us no time to sort a squad out for European qualifiers and be left short again.



11 Jan 2021 17:19:15
hibs have asked for our players to take another test which has been rejected.


1.) 11 Jan 2021 19:06:31
I don’t blame them in all honesty, we would do exactly the same.



21 Nov 2020 13:11:47
Turnbull and Welsh may now need to isolate if they are in the 11 players in contact with the keeper mcrorie.


1.) 21 Nov 2020 13:39:59
We will find out shortly and if Porteous of Hibs is one of the victims.

2.) 21 Nov 2020 14:16:05
Porteous is playing.
There’s a good chance McCrorie, Ferguson and McLennan of Aberdeen will all need to isolate if they’ve been close to McCrorie’s brother the goalie who has tested positive.



19 Nov 2020 12:14:29
Celtic have agreed a deal with premier sports for season ticket holders to view the Ross county game.




23 Oct 2020 08:59:23
Morning all, I was shouting from the rooftops when I heard we were getting Duffy in after watching him down south but while not writing him off I've been very surprised by his terrible positioning he has been all over the place.


1.) 23 Oct 2020 11:35:22
In the last 7 weeks Duffy has played 14 full games for club and country, so fitness isn’t an issue.
I think he would be more comfortable in a back 4.

2.) 23 Oct 2020 11:51:08
Buzz, you make a valid point. let's judge him in a back 4 . albeit brilliant basics ahiukdnt be impossible in a 2 or a 3 . he has some making up to do to be convincing for us.

3.) 23 Oct 2020 12:38:32
He's been a bomb scare so far. I've seen a few comments about him not playing in a back 3 for Brighton and not being suitable for it. That's worrying when we purposely signed him to play in a 3 at the back formation.

4.) 23 Oct 2020 14:48:51
Can someone explain to me how a professional central defender would play better in a back 4 than a back 3? Is it because in a 3 he needs to cover more space and can't do it coz he's slow as f**k?

5.) 23 Oct 2020 15:34:01
It's clear Duffy is not able to handle the 3 at the back. Let hope Lennon and management team finally go back to a back 4. If he struggles then, he will have to be changed once one of the other CB returns.

6.) 23 Oct 2020 15:43:26
I thought a back 3 was doomed from the start with the defenders we had available.
In the first game we played the 3-5-2 was away at Ross County and Lenny started Duffy on the right side and Jullian in the middle.
That was never going to work and what was more worrying was that Lenny also felt that Jullian couldn’t play on the right side.
Add into the mix Ajer playing out of position on the left side.
There was no balance and it showed big time.
Everyone has known all year, if this was going to work properly going forward,
We had to sign a left sided CB to let Ajer play on his natural right side.
Playing Bitton brought more balance at the back but the whole formation is lacking throughout the team.
Lennon went back to the basics in the second half last night and it’s a start.

7.) 23 Oct 2020 16:29:34
Of course non of the above is helping the new goalkeeper settle. We need the back line settled and consistent and maybe then we can build a bit of confidence. All this chopping and changing, is it any wonder no one knows WTF they’re doing. Injury and absence aside, the defence has been neglected for more than a few seasons and only the winning has taken the focus of that. Now that mid to front has hit a lean spot, that neglect is a real problem. And Lennon constantly tinkering isn’t helping.

8.) 23 Oct 2020 19:34:37
It’s about the space and like physics n stuff. 3 CD v 2 CD is massively different from a playing, defending and coaching perspective. Some are tuned to it based on what they are used to from previous teams etc. Check out his Brighton lineups, Ireland etc. Apply some facts v emotion.

9.) 23 Oct 2020 19:43:24
Bitton and Elhamed are both better defenders than Duffy .

10.) 23 Oct 2020 21:30:05
Duffy is the worst centre half I have seen at Celtic for many a year. Bring back Shedit!

11.) 23 Oct 2020 23:38:51
Expensive mistake, need him out of team before real gap opens up.

12.) 24 Oct 2020 07:39:57
From what I have seen of Duffy he is rank rotten. Hope we can get Henry back lol.

13.) 24 Oct 2020 10:55:47
I know we're paying his wages which won't be cheap but let's be thankful we didn't buy him. HH.

14.) 24 Oct 2020 21:38:38
I think if big Duffy was another nationality everyone would be wanting him out the team. But because he is Irish people are willing to keep giving him chances enough is enough.

{Ed007's Note - That's just bollocks. Duffy held his own in his over 100 apps in the best Pub League in the world, the fact he's a Celtic supporter is only a bonus as you need players who knows what it means to wear the jersey. He lost his place at Brighton simply because he's not a silky ball playing CB which they wanted and we have enough of.
Better players than Duffy have had worse starts to their Celtic career and now morons have started using his nationality as a stick to beat him - don't be a moron, Marco.}

15.) 24 Oct 2020 22:12:46
Well said Ed cannot stand that patronising crap about Celtic fans . that wee clown keevins has been giving it that patter for years about us, And btw Marco the whole thread is so called Celtic fans ripping him to shreds saying they want him out the team so what a stupid post.

16.) 24 Oct 2020 22:16:55
It's not just Duffy that has been struggling. a lot of players are underperforming. If Duffy was not Irish l don't think he would be getting half the abuse. The defence as a whole has been rotten. I don't hear half the abuse been given to anyone else. There is more tgan him in defence. Hopefully Lennon will go to a back 4 and get a settled side. U don't play the amount of games in the EPL and be a bad player.

17.) 25 Oct 2020 08:31:59
It’s not just the formation it’s how the back 3 play. They are so narrow that it invites pressure. They should be much further apart when in possession so opposition need to go out middle to wide either side to shut down guy in possession which creates space for the midfield 3 and wing backs.
Watched how Chelsea utilised it last night in United game and the spacing was far different.
We have now have the 3 sitting so narrow as they are afraid defensively at the moment so they over compensate IMO.
If Lennon goes back to 4 in the back it might suit us better or he could just coach them in the 3-5-2 properly.
3-5-2 worked wonders when we had 2 good players up top last season and we weren’t really tested in the games from a defensive proposition as we didn’t play Rangers and struggled against Copenhagen.
So basically 3-5-2 is good when we play weaker teams but not good against better sides.
What’s wrong with having 2 styles of play, horses for courses.
Used to be 4-4-2 in league and 4-5-1 in Europe.

18.) 26 Oct 2020 08:26:08
Ed how can you defen Duffy, I don't watch the epl or internationals I watch celtic and celtic only and Duffy was being hailed as the next messiah and people were also mentioning his nationality. My point is I only see the guys when the play for celtic and I was told he is an old fashioned ch who just clears his lines, how many goals has he cost us this season because of his mistakes, all I am saying is that if a player who plays for Ireland joins us then they seem to get more chances than if we had signed some Brazilian or African. I know it's not fair but I judge on his displays for celtic.

{Ed007's Note - Did you write off Henrik Larsson after 10 games as well because he looked honking when he first came? Duffy will improve as his match fitness/sharpness gets up to scratch and when he isn't being caught out having to cover for a RB who can't defend and constantly leaves the defence exposed.}

ed on your point on your post earlier regarding desmonds son, I've actually heard he's in line to take over lawell but i realise what pish goes about at times, have you heard anything about this mate?


{Ed007's Note - That rumour's been kicking about for a while, Liam and I have no idea if it's true but I do know for a fact from someone who has spoken to him (Ross) that one of his son's "gets it" and would push the Club in a different direction given the chance.}

1.) 12 Jan 2021 22:43:26
sounds promising and i believe there will be change and look forward to see the direction we go in.

2.) 12 Jan 2021 22:56:57
Hope its true and if it is true, sooner the better.



11 Jan 2021 19:21:40
ed please answer me this wtf are we doing regarding duffy after me saying he deserves credit for making himself available fat boyd pulls out his phone live on sky and reads a statement from celtic when duffy left dubai stating that he will have to miss tonights match because he was took out the bubble do you think we will be punished for this because i think we have messed up here.


{Ed007's Note - He returned a negative test which apparently allows him to play.}

1.) 11 Jan 2021 19:32:32
BFKB should be sacked for that stunt. Regardless of his info was right or wrong.

2.) 11 Jan 2021 19:33:07
hope that's the end of it then and not another own goal by us anyway the big man for first goal at 18s.



11 Jan 2021 18:42:07
fair play to duffy tonight making himself available.


1.) 11 Jan 2021 18:57:03
His heart is in the right place - even if his boots are on the wrang feet ha ha. Well done to him all the same; even though I'm still ragin about this disaster-movie of a season we are stumbling through.

2.) 11 Jan 2021 19:06:54
Take my hat off to him. He's going through a bad time yet still makes himself available.

3.) 11 Jan 2021 19:13:48
Fair play to Duffy he hasn’t deserted the cause and I think you are right he’s joined in the fight. It’s do or die tonight.

4.) 11 Jan 2021 19:15:47
Well done Shane Duffy. ☘️.

5.) 11 Jan 2021 19:34:38
I think we will win and Duffy will score.

Got 5/ 2 on both teams to score and Celtic win.

Regardless of what happened in the last few days I'm really looking forward to the game and seeing a few of the youngsters get a chance.

6.) 11 Jan 2021 21:10:41
70 min in and if this is the best we've got then we really are in trouble absolute mince.



11 Jan 2021 18:31:33
hibs have been assured by the spfl that if any affects from C.V. by fulfilling tonights fixture that would affect there semi final in 2 weeks time then the semi would be postponed.


1.) 11 Jan 2021 21:26:49
Turnbull the shining light tonight rescues us from the monotony.



11 Jan 2021 13:02:29
If it's the players that's rumoured to be isolating we should still have a strong starting 11.


1.) 11 Jan 2021 13:09:51
who are the players liam.

2.) 11 Jan 2021 13:11:52
The game should be awarded to hibs.

3.) 11 Jan 2021 13:18:00
why should it be awarded to hibs if we have a team we can field. only way it can be awarded is if we can not field a team.

4.) 11 Jan 2021 13:25:27
United Ireland definitely do not know how reliable this is mate.
Klimala, Julien, barkas, hazard, Taylor, Ralston, Henderson, Johnston, ajeti, brown, elhamed, rogic, bitton.

5.) 11 Jan 2021 13:31:54
Because of the way this C.V. spreads . tommorrow or in the following days more players could be positive and possibly have spread to hibs . the arrogance and stupidity of the dubai trip could be overtaken by allowing this game to take place . we know there where breaches of rules in Dubai and on the flights . Kennedy has admitted as much . so to possibly put hibs at risk also is imo morally wrong.

6.) 11 Jan 2021 13:37:33
Yes I seen this maybe fake news as these are most who don't get a game or I injured or can leave our club.
