Time for Charlie to reign it in, was my idol growing up but some of the stuff he's coming away with is nonsense. on the back of saying sevco are improving and all the Stevie g nonsense, he's now criticizing a lap of honour, for me it was more about all the guff that had been said and written on the build up to the game from Charlie himself, think the players felt relieved but it just seems Charlie has a pop whenever he can maybe he's keeping in line with his sky pay masters.

Mally this clown is incapable of keeping his mouth shut about us, and it’s never anything other than having a pop at us! Said it before and I’ll say it again, it boils ma blood that he once wore our top and anything he did when he was playing for us disappeared a long time ago! He’s actually worse than a person in my eyes! your kris boyds mccoists raes McCulloch have digs and open there gubs because it kills them that we’re so dominant! But this scumbag who ED said is a massive Celtic fan doesn’t have that exuse! Hate is a really strong word to use but this can't brings out an anger in me every time I see his face or god forbid actually listen to his voice and the utter shoite he spouts! Said on here before I wouldn’t let him in the door of park head ever again, and I mean ever! We have to listen to English run our game down constantly, and this clown is worse than the lot of them! Sorry for the rant lads lol.

@Lh88 he is the same as Davie Provan. Seems to be if your an ex Celt you must wear blue tinted specs to get a job on Sky. The sky money must mean more to these guys than their “love” of the club. Sevco seam to be the favourite down there just now coz of greety g. But don’t worry if his great record keeps up he’ll be gone by Christmas HH🍀🍀.

Bhoys a for one don't want him to wax lyrical about us for the sake of it. but the last 2 years has been near perfect domestically. and this year haven just started and he's banging on about being second and looking up at hearts it's just garbage at least big Sutton backs us up but also gives us it if it's deserved. i've lost all respect for the man and as av said absolutely loved him as a player but am finished with him . clown.

They took their 30 pieces of silver and should never be allowed to back near our ground never mind in it.

I have a couple of points to make, one of which Kev83 has already hinted at.

The first point is Charlie Nicholas has very low intelligence and his insight into football is severely lacking as a result. Fo this reason alone, his opinion is not worth listening to, unless you like listening to cliches or factually incorrect statements.

The second point is about how the systsem works in Scotland. Rangers have high up people in the media on their payroll and spend a lot of money trying to paint themselves in a good light and us in a bad light. Charlie Nicholas, Davie Provan, Murdo McLeod and Mark Wilson are just some of our ex players who are on that payroll. As Kev said, they have taken their 30 pieces of silver and are happy to put us down so they can get their next pay cheque. This is another reason you are best ignoring anything that comes out their mouths.

"What about you Jeff? " Muppet!

Raw i take everythi g he says with a pinch of salt a mean we're 4 or 5 games in and he's wittering on about hearts being top when everyone and there granny knows not for one min does Charlie think that hearts will win the league. he sounds like he has an agenda something happened we don't know about and even then am stretching.

05 Sep 2018 12:21:42
@Mally - He does have an agenda, his agenda is to get paid by his Rangers' paymasters.

He will get contacted by someone like Jim Traynor, who will say Charlie we are sending you a script, which we need you to say on air and we will send your cheque once its done. Charlie, will say no problem Jim just send the script when its ready and I'll get it done.

{Ed007's Note - That's just nonsense, RAW.}

They’re just playing the media game of trying to be controversial. Facts disappear quickly, controversy keeps their “ profile” up a wee bit longer.

05 Sep 2018 14:28:24
Seems it all stems back to when Martin O'Neill came in.
Guy like Nicholas were just wandering in and out training and dressing rooms when they felt like it.
Oneill thought there were to many leaks about what was happening behind closed door, so he banned them all.
Told them to stick to the hospitality areas.

Heard that a few times but could be Chinese whispers.

So Ed, you don't think ex Celtic players are on Level 5's payroll?

Granted the scenario I outlined may not be the exact way it is done but level 5 do pay ex Celtic players to speak out against Celtic.

{Ed007's Note - I never said that but Charlie Nicholas, no he isn't on Level 5's payroll. MacLeod and Wilson are and I don't think Provan is, I've no idea what his problem but I suspect he's just a miserable sod about everything Celtic - we've got people on here who are the same, who always post negativity and try to hijack & twist threads to a negative discussion.
Nicholas huff started when Tommy Burns/Fergus McCann released him after the '95 Cup Final. Remember Macari let Nicholas go after the end of season 93/94 only for Tommy Burns to resign him a few weeks later on a two-year deal, which would take Nicholas up to his planned retirement, that was ideal as he had always wanted to finish his career at Celtic. Nicholas was extremely disappointed and angry about being dropped for the '95 Cup Final against Airdrie and his subsequent release that summer - a year early.
After that there was the issue under MON about the access ex-players had to certain areas or departments at the Club, especially the ones who had media jobs or connections.}

I don't take much notice of any of the pundits particularely the ones on Sky.
They nearly always base their opinions on how much a team spends and nothing else. They were all saying at the start of the season that West ham would finish quite high up because they spent about £100m on their squad, now they are scratching their heads because they have lost their first four games.
Liverpool finished second behind Man City last season and these same pundits think that as they have spent £150m in the summer they will reduce the points gap between them and City. To think that they are paid absolute fortunes to come up with this.

{Ed007's Note - But they're speaking a language that the majority of supporters speak as well, the more money you spend the better your team is, and how a player is automatically judged by what he cost. Yet wiser people - like us on here 😋 - know that's not necessarily true.
If every team has no money to spend it comes down to the coach/manager, his training, tactics and formations etc, but the same happens in England where every club has stupid money to start with, it a then also comes down to the coach/manager, his training, tactics and formations etc.
Could Pep Guardiola come up here with say Accies and win the league while sticking to the Accies budget? Not a chance in hell but neither could Martin Canning manage Man City and win the Pub League, even with their budget.}

What was that about MON ex players, Ed? Can't remember reading/ hearing about that?

{Ed007's Note - MON had an issue with the amount of access ex-players had to certain areas or departments at the Club, especially the ones who worked in the media.}

05 Sep 2018 18:22:05
Ok, I thought he might of had a run in with someone in particular. cheers.

{Ed007's Note - No mate it was in general, thinking back now could that have affected Andy Walker as well?}

05 Sep 2018 18:29:22
The 2 of tham are prob raging that they never got asked to do any of the hospitality or stadium tours.

05 Sep 2018 18:51:21
Charlie Nicholas and his ego would of done the same thing if he played for Celtic today. I can't take to him, he seems to have a massive chip on his shoulder about anything and everything. I suspect though his main gripe about life is the wages players are earning today compared to what he was earning.

05 Sep 2018 18:27:15
Though that was something to do with it ed.
Can always mind most of the leaks stopped after that.

{Ed007's Note - 👍
