dont know if its true got a text from a freind of mine who said that steve clark has apparently signed a pre contract with us to be next manager if true then thoughts bhoys and ghirls hh.

1.) 01 Mar 2021 19:31:59
I would not mind Steve Clarke, although he would not be my number one choice.

One of the main advantages of getting Steve Clarke in, is it would deprive the SFA of the best Scotland manager they have had in a decade.

2.) 02 Mar 2021 14:13:11
I'd say Clarke would be a real unambitious appointment. His style of football is as dull as his personality. Hopefully someone with a brand of exciting attacking football that can tactically organize a team to defend also.

3.) 02 Mar 2021 23:45:52
bravetart86 agree with you in a way but if we don't concede goals especially from set pieces then that is fine by me if we don't play attacking football which is the celtic way who cares its results that count.



07 Dec 2020 00:56:21
so has lenny done the decent thing and resinged. neil if you love the club as much as we all do then do the decent thing and go that way u will still be a celtic legend do you want to be known as the manager who cost us 10iar.

1.) 07 Dec 2020 09:27:28
Eff resigning he should be sacked we are a mess and he isn't fixing it.

2.) 07 Dec 2020 10:20:21
Can't believe it's 10:15 the next day and the board hasn't either taken action or publicly backed Lennon. It's now 1 win in 9. That's a worse stat than 2 in 12.

Lennon won't resign because he'll get a pay off if he's sacked. To me, he looks a broken man on the touchline and is desperate for the sack so he gets the payoff. The board is sitting there hoping he'll resign so they don't need to pay him.

I spotted the Kennedy shrug in real-time and that's a man who just doesn't care about the situation, and isn't interested in helping the manager.

3.) 07 Dec 2020 11:14:31
It’s the first time Celtic have went 5 games without a win in 23 years.

4.) 07 Dec 2020 11:43:29
It is amazing how Lennon and Kennedy are still in their jobs where it's by walking out or the sack but truly amazing both are still there . Is it pig headedness by the board thinking not to bow to fan pressure I am not sure but its just making a mockery of the club and lowering our reputation for a well run club.

{Ed007's Note - We haven't been a well run Club for years now, Tony but the board and the fans were happy with us dominating Scottish football and putting more importance on winning diddy trophies like the League Cup than really taking the Club forward.
The league should always be the priority but after that qualification for the CL should be a must and players brought in to do that. We should be seeing an improvement in the squad after every transfer window and the players improving with the right coaches in place, I'd even put getting more out of our academy above the domestic cups.}

5.) 07 Dec 2020 12:39:37
Winning the league this season could possibly gain us automatic entry next season into the CL so the board's reluctance to make changes could cost them millions if we fail to overhaul Rangers. It would make things so much better too as we'll more time to do our transfer business and bed them in for Europe, attract better quality players, it may convince wantaway players to stay, a longer rest period before next season starting, all of which will be massive after this season particularly after the revenue lost this year so the board are gambling massively on Lennon when he's showing nothing but regression at an alarming rate.

{Ed007's Note - The winners of the league this year still need to play 2 qualifying rounds for the 21/22 CL Group Stages and 2nd place will need to play 3.}

6.) 07 Dec 2020 13:24:48
I agree Ed the thing that I am weary of is If we don't win the next Sevco game I can't see them dropping many points to other teams in this league and therefore I can't see us getting 10 and if the board keeps Lenny in charge for that game say goodbye to the 10 And I would not blame Lenny for that but the board would have to be accountable for mismanagement.

{Ed007's Note - I've been saying for years that Lawwell was past his sell by date, DD has some big decisions to make this coming summer regardless of who wins the league.}

7.) 07 Dec 2020 14:12:55
I don't know if I'm in the minority or majority but after this season I'd like to see the club have a longer term project to make us more equipped for European football. We've been beaten by too many teams with similar or smaller budgets in recent seasons. I've not given up on this year's title altogether but I'm starting to let one eye wander to where we go from here.

{Ed007's Note - Sounds good to me 👍

8.) 07 Dec 2020 14:49:22
It would help if we brought new players in for pre-season training in the lead up to the qualifiers.
Instead of waiting to see what European competition we have qualified for first.
Celtic have always been slow starters for this reason and we don’t normally hit top form until about the November time.
It’s just not happened this season.

9.) 07 Dec 2020 15:09:56
The league cup should be used to give some fringe and youth players 1st team experience however the demand for trebles has meant this has been neglected
Our football model is terrible and a good bunch of youth players are seeing their path to 1st team become more difficult.
A total overhaul is required. Looking across europe ex players seem to be involved in recruitment.
Not sure if this is a role someone like mcnamara could take over for celtic or if hed be looking at self interest.

10.) 07 Dec 2020 16:28:33
Totally agree Buzz Bomb. Although every season when we get papped out the qualifiers I do argue that the players are the same ones who won a domestic Treble and qualified for the knockout stages of European competition. Our lack of CL football and EL campaign this season could well be the difference between the next Edouard choosing us or another club. We should have ambitions to get towards the level of an Ajax or Salzburg. I think after the 10 is decided either way the fans would be willing to accept a longer term project if it was geared towards better results in Europe.

not celtic related but thank god football is not coming home enrico my friend have lots of grape juice.

{Ed007's Note - Football's went to Rome....

1.) 11 Jul 2021 23:09:49
Well said Ray.
Enjoy your finest, Enrico my friend 🍷🇮🇹.

2.) 12 Jul 2021 05:12:48
Like the Italian defend shouted down the carmea " football ⚽️ coming Rome" 🤣🤣👍👍.



16 May 2021 23:10:38
so the legendary pundit that is danny murphy has said on the one football app that eddie howe has apparently changed his mind about becoming our manager after all danny knows best yeah right.

1.) 17 May 2021 11:48:46
Every Time I watch us, I say to myself, I hope Howe isn't watching this. I won't believe he is signing until he has. I have zero confidence in our board to make things right, so him pulling out woukd be no surprise. And I bet I'm not alone in thinking they could feck anything up.



08 Apr 2021 00:49:48
lets get the howe link over and done with if he doesn't want to be our manager then he or his agent let us know and we move on.



29 Mar 2021 01:11:11
hope to the f word that it is not keane as our new manager as it will lead 2 sevco winning 10 in a row the only thing roy keane is able to manage is a piss up in a brewery.

1.) 29 Mar 2021 11:20:53
That’s a bit of an exaggeration ray.

2.) 29 Mar 2021 15:34:40
No a fan then Ray?



04 Mar 2021 19:56:54
how does everyone feel about sean dyche coming in a new manager just a thought.

1.) 04 Mar 2021 20:24:07
No thanks.

2.) 04 Mar 2021 20:35:11
Nope. Obviously a good manager but won’t be a pleasant watch.

3.) 04 Mar 2021 21:31:54
I'll pass thanks.

4.) 04 Mar 2021 21:43:15
Better than having O'Neil from Stoke. if this is the type of box office manager we are after. we are in bigger trouble than I thought.

5.) 04 Mar 2021 21:46:22
I would bite your hand off for some one of Sean Dyche's quality. Would be a real coup for our club.
