Sky sports you tube channel is covering the full Brendan Rodgers Interview live at 4 pm.

Just a rumour I have been given not sure how good it is really we are supposed to be looking at Daizan Maeda from Anges old club you tube can do wonders to a player and he does look good but if true Ange would know All about him.


1.) 10 Oct 2021 15:54:16
Posted that the other day Tony heard that to.

2.) 11 Oct 2021 17:23:57
His contract expires in January 2024.
Similar to Kyogo, he plays as a striker or left winger.
Although most of his goals are by his right foot.
Maeda is slightly taller than Kyogo and stands just under 5 foot 9 inches.
And yet about 20% of his goals are from headers which is impressive, considering only 10% of Kyogo’s goals are from headers.

The king was never rhe tallest and scored a barrel load with his bonce.

4.) 12 Oct 2021 10:33:17
An honest question Buzz Bomb, is the average player in the J league smaller than in the European leagues?

5.) 12 Oct 2021 10:56:33
I hope your staying strong arrowh.
That’s a question and a half. ?
The average Japanese man is 2 or 3 inches shorter than a British, German or Dutch man.

6.) 13 Oct 2021 14:01:28
I’m doing ok Buzz thanks. I asked because I was wondering if he would find it more difficult against bigger defenders.

7.) 16 Oct 2021 09:55:13
Smaller in stature but they all have a bit of heart and pride about them, Maeda is a different type of striker to Kyogo quick, strong and direct could be a good partnership .



06 Jul 2021 15:39:31
Celtic v Sheffield Wednesday on Celtic tv tomorrow at 3pm.




13 Sep 2020 19:38:57
Alvaro Gimmines sorry for the spelling is supposed to have joined us? I haven't a clue if it's correct or not according to a commentator on Sly.


1.) 13 Sep 2020 23:35:06
Did he not sign for Cadiz a few weeks ago.

2.) 14 Sep 2020 06:49:04
He signed for cadiz last year and hasn't made an appearance yet.

3.) 14 Sep 2020 08:06:33
The article I read was possibly the worst piece of written word I've seen for ages. How anyone concluded anything from that garbled mess is between them and their primary 3 school teacher.

4.) 14 Sep 2020 11:12:46
Marco he actually signed for them on loan last year and played 13 times, he just hasn't played since the loan was made permanent.



20 Jun 2020 19:12:23
Peterborough have issued a statement saying that Gavin Strachan is joining Celtic as a coach.


1.) 21 Jun 2020 13:14:34
Terms apparently agreed with both peterborough and strachan and to be announced this week, supposedly knows kennedy well after going through coaching badges together.

Hypothetical but is it just me or does anyone else think someone is playing games at Celtic AND I am not talking about football. The more I think about it to me it looks like someone is trying to make some other person out to be foolish and no good whether its someone on the board trying to make Rodgers to look bad or Rodgers trying to make someone or some people on the board to look bad but the football side is suffering badly from it. The recruitment from when BR has came in is baffling to say the least why? BR said at a press conference that sometimes the club have to be brave when it comes to recruitment why did he say that? To me it sounded like we could have got X, Y, Z players in by spending a little more I could be wrong But that was my take on it. So if that is the case who is blocking the moves?


1.) 22 Feb 2024 12:16:49
Not saying BR is blameless in all this, but there's only one name that always crops up whenever low-balling or penny-pinching has been involved at Celtic in proposed transfer business. No matter his role.

2.) 22 Feb 2024 13:00:26
I don't really see it Tony. The reason being, our club love nothing more than raking in money. Next season's CL is the most lucrative ever so would they deliberately put that in jeopardy to spite a manager they don't like? Alternatively, we all know BR has an ego. Is he going to risk looking incompetent (which he will if we don't win this league) ? I don't think the lack of bravery/ spending is specific to BR, it's been par for the course for many years.

3.) 22 Feb 2024 13:21:49
Love to be a fly on the wall at these board meetings, just to hear how they are planning to scam us out of more money.
M Nicholson £711.000 a year and goes into hiding when the club and supporters are looking for some leadership.
Probably ask the lawells to hide fir a season or two then come back when things quieting down.

4.) 22 Feb 2024 13:41:48
Its been said to death but PL in his role should be nowhere near transfers. on the other hand if he's advising his boy to make low ball offers for players and we're missing out he should be out the door immediately.

5.) 22 Feb 2024 13:45:13
I don’t think WE’RE ALL IN,
Will work again for next season.

Celtic had WE NEVER STOP,
For 2 seasons with Ange and our club sold thousands of T-shirts with that slogan.

Maybe “Conned By The Celtic Board” would sell more T-shirts.
Add to the £100 Million already in the Bank.

6.) 22 Feb 2024 14:32:56
He’s still the chairman of the board. He could have a hand in potential options and have influence over the other board members. They will listen to him.

7.) 22 Feb 2024 16:50:19
Who ever it is or what ever it There does seem to be something rotten going on behind the scenes and if DD doesn't do anything about it he should walk away from the club himself because it does seem to be clear that something is going on and it's nothing good.

8.) 22 Feb 2024 18:30:42
Think the ones conned the most were the Board, when they thought they were getting a good manager in Brendan, I wrote a post back in August after the Kilmarnock game, on the discussion pages, it's still there, Brendan has to prove now that he is a good manager, the players are good enough, I believe that, but they have to be managed, and up to now Brendan hasn't been doing that.



19 Feb 2024 23:11:33
If BR was not the manager and IF it was some one we have never heard off before do you think the fans would be shouting for him to walk or would it be the board? Given the em so called style we have seen this season I would want the manager out. In no way am I trying to back the board but I just can't help thinking what if we had brought in another person at the start of the season and we saw this style of play and dropping so many points in about 3 months. Another question is this does anyone think Lawell is blameless in the situation we find the club in now?


1.) 20 Feb 2024 00:36:03
Tony2bhoy . When u ask is Lawell blameless, I am not sure which Lawell u are referring to .
Having said that there aren’t many Board members or individuals employed in football affairs including players themselves who are not blameless.
Without open and honest disclosure of what actually has happened since Ange came, and especially since he left, I would blame everyone and think everyone including us fans could have done better
The easiest thing in the World is to blame the Board . However we aren’t yet in desperation . Yesterday virtually every time the ball went into our penalty area, VAR checked to see could they award a penalty against us . This puts our players under more pressures than other SPL teams and especially Sevco, who yesterday were allowed to continue after fouling a St Johnston player and score and then had 2 penalties awarded to Sevco to remove any doubt about result and help goal difference . Our fans won’t make any attempt to make referees feel uncomfortable but don’t delay picketing Board if some fans think Board has done wrong . Despite our poor form from time to time and best players injured we would be ahead of Rangers in the league if it wasn’t for ref and VAr.

2.) 20 Feb 2024 06:31:36
We have beat Sevco twice and still we trail by two points, I fail to see why Lawwell keeps getting the blame! This team minus Starfelt and Jota ( Jota perhaps the only one we miss as Starfelt was awful) won the treble last season. It's clearly the manager and his out of date tactics. Everyone knows how to play against us now.

3.) 20 Feb 2024 07:59:03
It's got nothing to do with var and a lot to do with not being good enough. ccv and hatate make a difference but sevco have had injuries as well and coped much better. we've had var calls go for us at well. and I don't know many celtic fans that don't give refs pelters.

4.) 20 Feb 2024 08:44:39
Our board has been out of touch for decades. We may be a well run business but we are poorly run football club! If our club was run properly, we would have been out of sight ten years ago and we wouldn’t be having this debate now!

5.) 20 Feb 2024 08:49:57

Starfelt is better than Scales and the 7 million CH the blameless Lawell's bought. The blameless Lawell's banked 25 million from Jota and sanctioned 20 Million on 7 projects while sitting on 90 million of the supporters money. The Lawell vanity project of buy cheap sell high model has left us with a squad of over payed dross. On top of DD bringing back a dud manager that the support had doubts about. Yip they're doing a cracking job.

6.) 20 Feb 2024 10:16:16
bhoy88 starfelt much better than you give him credit for better than any ch we have and that includes ccv this season.

7.) 20 Feb 2024 12:36:33
Bhoy88 I'd give my right b*ll*ck to have had Starfelt at the club this season. In the top 5 CBs we've had in 25 years.



18 Feb 2024 17:01:50
What I can't understand is this The people in charge of Celtic aren't daft they surely are intelligent people So assuming that Why couldn't they see what all other Celtic fan sees? as far as the squad was not fit for purpose at the start of the season and certainly not fit for purpose at the winter window Yet given the money at stake for qualifying for the CL they did NOTHING to even try to rectify the problems that were glaringly obvious to everyone else? They had months to search out new players in the positions that were needed I just can't understand it . Just like when we were going for 10 IAR they never even tried to stop the train crash IF Sevco do win the league and it is starting to look like a big possibility we will find it really difficult to stop them next season If I was a shareholder I would be really pissed off at the board and demand answers to why YET AGAIN THIS BOARD FELL ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL.


1.) 18 Feb 2024 17:52:46
Need to rid ourselves of this despotic corrupt gang ruining our great club!

2.) 18 Feb 2024 17:53:14
This season is over ….

3.) 18 Feb 2024 18:42:20
celt65 - Even if by some miracle we manage to prevail this season, and it will be a miracle, we would enter Europe with some budget summer signings and be embarrassed once more.

Never in my dreams did I envisage such a rapid deterioration in our performances. Shocking lack lustre displays from the manager to the last squad member. The future is bleak unless there is a rapid turnaround. Once on this rocky road there is no quick fix.

Jota was the last player we had who could make things happen.
All the guys we have brought in are sub-standard.

4.) 18 Feb 2024 20:43:58
4 LC

Well said.

5.) 19 Feb 2024 00:47:16
Celt65 who is the despotic corrupt gang that runs our club?
They may be incompetent people running our club, at least there is an argument for calling some of them that, but where is the evidence that they are corrupt.



17 Feb 2024 17:54:43
Well AGAIN that was awful. As much as the board are to blame for this season Rodgers has to carry part or even a lot of the blame also If we had any other Manager in charge some one that we were not familiar with I think most fans would be shouting for him to walk. The style of play the substitutions and the players we have brought in from when he arrived can't just fall fully on the board. You would think when he took over he would have came with his own conditions and if he was stupid enough to come blind its his fault He should know what the board is like from the first time he was here I really think we have lost the league and I don't just blame the board for that. Rodgers should have been more forceful to bring in the players he wanted instead of letting the board choose for him I am not excepting that THE SCOUTING TEAM make the selection unless that is a code at Celtic for the BOARD . Again the board have let the club and the Celtic fans down when it really counted Las time was when we were going for 10.




08 Feb 2024 15:16:38
Some of the players aren't good enough I get that. But this pass pass pass across the half way line even when we are drawing in the second half or taking a corner and without opposition touching the ball it ends up at our goal keeper WHY? Its like night and day from last season. I guess this is a swipe at Rodgers our style of play is woeful in most games no pressing in the final third just keep the ball and we win the game Sorry but putting the ball in the net wins the game. Teams just soak up the pressure and hope to hit us on the brake like the Aberdeen game when they scored. We can't just keep riding our luck. The team has to improve big time and Rodgers has to up his tactics on winning a game and winning it with confidence Like we were used to with Ange. Rant over.


1.) 08 Feb 2024 15:55:52
These boys should be professional enough to know when to pass forward or not, that's a natural instinct, a manager can only teach so much until players get onto park then up to them, theve not got time to think what a manager has told them or not.

2.) 08 Feb 2024 16:00:58
It is pathetic. You watch the games and you know exactly where the ball will be passed and so do our opponents.

It does not take much for our opponents to intercept. All they need to do is get within striking distance and as soon as we pass, they make their run and have a decent chance to intercept. Even if they don't manage, our receiving player is under pressure.

3.) 08 Feb 2024 16:05:24
Something definitely doesn't add up. BR has recently advocated slick passing, pace and high press football, but invariably we are subjected to the same - easy to defend - sideways and doubling back. It's either that he priorities possession retention or we have too many players that don't have the ability or the confidence to play with pace, control or individual flair. I'm thinking it's too many playing safe, passing the buck and lacking initiative, but who knows?

4.) 08 Feb 2024 16:16:13
This is the way that Brendan has the team playing the last time he was here, it is the managers that tell the players how they want their teams to play, you could see when Ange came in he changed the whole way the team had been playing under Lennon and Rodgers, it is a manager thing.

5.) 09 Feb 2024 00:47:40
Managers certainly can improve Individual and team performance, but reasonable good players will always break through from whatever way their manager has shackled them .
What I notice even in our last couple of league games, team has gone out and threatened to run riot for first 20/ 25 mins . They have scored in this period as well . To me that is because of what BR has said and done with them in the days and then hours before match . That part is done quite well, why do the wheels come off and by the the 60th Min we have a battle to stay in touch.

Obviously Celtic aren't going to pay say £5 million for a player that is valued at £1 million on the transfer market just using that as a example But its when you hear that we didn't get the player because of 200k difference in what the selling club wants and what Celtic is offering that annoys me.

It's sometimes better to speculate to accumulate more so this season with the prize money at stake for qualifying for the CL. The board have been criminal in my mind not to take that in to consideration as far as bringing in sows ears to try to make them into silk purses instead of bringing in quality in a high stake season IF none of the board walk at the end of this season IF we don't win the league and that is starting to look like we won't then DD has to pack it in as Celtic major shareholder if he doesn't force them out Because its not acceptable in any business to let their major competitor get the upper hand.

For me the jury is out with BR some of his substitutions have been baffling. Then again the squad we have now is far below what it should be far to many dross some as has been said wouldn't even get on the Kilmarnock bench let alone get a game for them yet BR is forced to play these players because the others are even worse if Lawell jnr was any other person he would be out the door in September but with daddy having so much clout in the board he still has his job to me the bboard have a lot to answer for.

For me regardless of the season I would get rid And to take a good few board members with him and the scouting team The full club needs a overhaul from top to bottom but that will not happen so no point saying so really.

Until we get rid of some of the board members nothing is going to change no matter who is the manager every one knew we needed some positions strengthened in the summer and winter window yet we got just dross not quantity we went to poundland instead of harrods Is it a coincidence that since Lawell senior has come back we have brought in about 12 players not fit in quality to play for us? Sell one good player replace him with 12 dross and hope for the best that one will come good to me that is really bad practice and one that has cost us the league And probably because of the money involved this season the league for a few years to come. Thank you board for falling asleep YET AGAIN.
