Thanks Stan, a lot of people don't like talking about it but jeez. I was told at 30 there was a 40percent chance of getting within 10 years and 60 percent within 20, initially taught procession don't win games.
But still bait the old sunlotion on. Maybe inevitable but why make it easy. Got my first sist removed a week before my 24th birthday.

All the best to your father. Hail hail.

Great game last, score and the performance. As a few have said every player had a good game, brown looks back to his best, as I've been saying you can see it game by game, rogic was quality and Sinclair looks like he will be a big player 4 us. McGregor I thought was everywhere winning balls starting moves n played really well, on form so hard to leave him out. If he keeps playing like that he will definitely nail down a place.
Forrest I hope has now hit the form we know he has but hopefully consistently, Rd had him playing well last season early on but as the season wore on his consistency just wasn't there, it's been his problem 4 years now, that n his final ball but I'm hoping that will all improve.
We won't play like that in every game but the high pressing game, quick movement n passing is how we need and should be playing. Long may it continue. Credit to br again.
Hail hail.

I'd like to see Ajer get first team games next season, at least 10 to 15 would be decent but if he was to barely play then completely with Stan in that they r better player regular football than sitting on a bench or missing out at all.
Gains experience at spfl level, keeps his game time n match fitness up n it also builds confidence playing regularly, it's not great for a players confidence training great all week n u don't play.
As Chris mccart said there is a route to the 1st team n each player will make their own way there but everubody knows all the coaching in the world does nothing if u never play, it's putting those teachings into practice on that pitch that develop u as a player.
We have so enjoyed really good youth n I hope a couple more make the step up this season, added to a couple more quality signings, Ralston Ajer could start fighting for a spot n would like to see aitchison getting a run out in at least a few games, otherwise get the lads out on loan n getting game time.
As with others bit disappointed Henderson doesn't seem to be making inroads into 1st team as every time I see him think he has looked the part, hopefully another loan n come back n hopefully more game time n experience under his belt to try n establish himself.
Hail hail.

Keep saying it but the signing of Roberts for me is a must, paddy as our new number 7 will be quality for us and will only improve as well as seeing his value soar. Absolute no brainer of a signing, 6-8 million is a steal for that type of quality.
Here we go 10 in a row.

Absolute must of a signing n be it 6_8 million he is well worth it n his value will only soar. Paddy Sinclair n Rogic/ armstrong in that attack 3 is just dynamite n the longer the chosen 3 (depends where Brendan plays Armstrong n rogics fitness but Armstrong is a first team pick be it in that 3 or as partner to Broony)
, The longer the play together they will just become deadlier n deadlier, always improving, always learning.
Brendan certainly won't be slacking or letting anyone else slack, trebles could be a regular thing the way our team is steam rollering every other team n we will just continue to improve n add more quality. Sure we may well sell a few here n there but we will bring in the same or similar type quality, certainly since pl let go of managerial duties Brendan has been allowed to bring in two top players in moussa n scotty, Gambia has been decent, kolos experience n form helped early on but i think he's been a good influence in the dressing room. Devries, not the best signing, however I'm sure that position will get another look as i feel we need better.
However fantastic first season for Brendan, he has done an outstanding job in all facets of the club n i can't wait to be celebrating that treble, as always with Celtic we win trophies and do our talking on the park.
Here we go 10 in a row.

Ed007 said it best he's a great number 1 just not for Celtic. He has made some decent saves n kept us in games here n there but there have been too many karate kick moments, blinder saves etc that i feel while comfortable at spfl level i feel we need a better goalkeeper for Europe. I look at a goalkeeper n dontjudge them solely on the but allow me to throw this out there, when looking at a goalkeeper i think is he going to save a last minute penalty or a big moment penalty when the pressures really on n i just don't see that with Gordon. Boruc n Forrester i always had faith in in that situation.
Don't get me wrong JimTim i agree mate with u and the others he has improved under Brendan but i just feel we need someone of top quality in that position.
We r not far away from a really good side with a couple leaving n the right quality coming in we have a bright future. So so hope we get Paddy signed up permanently or for at least another year with a view to permanent as he is absolute class n will go on to be a top player. He is that lubo, Nakamura, type player n delivers in Scotland as well as Europe.
As always great to be a Tim.
Hail hail.

Spot on JimTim, I'm n agreement with u mate n even getting rid of a few n bringing in Roberts solanke n onyekuru etc I'd be happy, it's just the right quality in certain positions. I would be over the moon however if we brought in a top goalkeeper Roberts n even solanke or onyekuru or another forward type, the keeper position is one i think needs addressed asap, specially for champions league.
We have a good squad so far n we will only improve, with a good bit of investment we could see progression in Europe n Being there regularly as well as racking up trophies, glasgows green and white the futures green and white.

Aindoh, really? Scott Allan? So you want to drop any 1 of rogic/ Armstrong just to fit in Allan? first of all are you nuts? and second of all you must have realised watching a game/ listening r completely different as commentators usually big up anything in our own half for the opposition as if it's a goal.
On another note I assume you didn't celebrate the titles won by Ronny? Which would have included a treble had it not been for blatant cheating from officials. This despite him not playing Scott Allan and players supposedly playing out of position, odd that as kt played at left back rogic attack mid, broony centre mid and Griff up front and Gordon, lustig, Forrest n Roberts all playing where they should. Only 1 that played slightly different was Armstrong coming in from the left however we also had johansen at that point.
As for Brendan, he clearly doesn't fancy Allan, we just won a treble and are going for back to back trebles and u want to have a go cause he doesn't play Allan n Lenny does? reason Lenny plays him is he's found his level, he ain't Celtic class. Rogic is way better, I would also like to see paddy Roberts in that number 10 role but allow that 3 to interchange, but even if rogic, Armstrong n Roberts didn't resign I still wouldn't play Allan as Christie is better.
PS I have watched Allan play, not just hear him on the radio so that's what I base this on.

Charles67 yeh good teams play the same way/ system/ style of play, whatever people want to call it but this is what Rd tried to install at Celtic and all we heard at games n on here was He needs to play a 442 as we can't play the same way/ formation etc in Europe n spfl yet Brendan is doing the exact same thing getting us to play a certain way regardless of what fans think n people r buying into it, I will back the manager 100% whoever our manager is, not all do.
People have short memories.
As to the game I agree with u bud about bit of a hangover, no excuse though as Brendan could have made more changes, n not as high a tempo, have to say 1st half we created decent chances n didn't take them, our tempo wasn't as high however I always felt we were in control, we had good possession albeit we didn't really get going in the final third but other than our keeper being a bombscare n gifting them a goal n the odd chance they had I felt in control, it's not like they ran over the top of us for 15_20 minutes like astana.
Had an argument with a clown next to me who (must have been in his 60's, more an animated discussion than an argument) asked me my thoughts on the game n I said we were in control (not dominant certainly but not backs to the wall) had good possession n had some decent chances n gifted them a goal through our joke of a keeper. He then asked if I thought I was intelligent, I said neither intelligent or unintelligent but I know football, he then gives it how we were rubbish in the 1st half worse he's ever seen under Brendan, I said you clearly don't remember red imps then which was our most embarrassing European defeat ever, Brendan's first game he replied to which I told him doesn't matter no amateur or pub team should be beating us.
Then he proceeds to say he's never seen Sinclair playing this bad I said r u joking he's not been great since the season started, nowhere near the form of last season, defensively he has been doing his job but he's definitely not hit last season's form yet. He then said well your clearly not intelligent n asks did I go to university, I'm like nope, he says well I did n I was taught off a very intelligent lecturer, I'm like fantastic all that education n they forgot to teach u manners. That shut him up. I proceeded to say whatever university u went to, had nothing to do with knowing football.
After he went silent I said what's up u can't take it but you can give it n he's like just watch the game n I was like oh look he can't take it when someone answers him back. Just for the record I don't get into arguments with anybody, the guy wasn't even sitting in his own seat, I was trying to be nice as he just started talking n I was at the game with my partner n wee boy so it kinda took away from the game. He tried to make a few more comments to wind me up as if he knew better or was more intelligent, mainly that brendan agreed with him as he took 2 players off, yeh well pity the 2 that came on didn't make that much difference as the guy who changed the game was Callum McGregor who came on later as the original changes hadn't worked. This intelligent guys words of wisdom n the stands were, come on, that was it whereas myself I talk players through the game as if I was coaching, I'm vocal when I watch n also sing n give the team backing, just how I am n many on here who played or didn't will be able to see a game, where passes should go, who should be running, when to go sideways, or back n when to be expansive, there we go expansive, look at me mum I'm using intelligent words, I feel so intelligent haha, although apparently I'm not.
Anyway 2nd half went on we upped the tempo n were attacking n playing higher up, although st Johnstone still had chances as we still looked a bit nervy n tired although maybe Brendan should ask why he didn't make more changes to freshen things up n rest tired legs. We got a point, should have got all 3 but we r still invincible n will still win the league at a canter. Still don't think we were awful in the 1st half, thought we were alright n but for the awful Gordon mistake never felt troubled, apart from collum who was woeful the whole match n is just an unintelligent ref. 😋
Hail hail.

Same as a few bhoys on here, reading the site about 5-7 years, not totally sure mind one of my 1st posts was about wanyama early doors n how I felt he would go onto be a top defensive mid, even then had folk disagreeing with that.
Bigshaw has been my first real name on here and while I don't post all the time I read the site religiously n its always first read of the day bar none. Ed007 is a quality ed n I really enjoy reading others views, whether I agree or not it's always good reading.
Timalloy, while we disagreed on Rd, still find your posts great, bigot in a suit amuses me as i know a number of them like that, not all mind but most haha n always enjoy reading a few others green jhedi when he pops by is always good but ed007s skelping of sevconians' is legendary n information wise top notch.

Remember the good old days when Scott Allan was being touted as the Messiah n folk were desperate to have commons in the team, wow changed days indeed. Commons slowed our team down n was too greedy n bar a couple of decent passes Allan showed nothing that made me think he was Celtic class.
The way our 3 behind dembele play is how forwards/ attackers should play i. e. Sinclair rogic n Roberts they can all easily interchange, n swap with the 1 up top, yet people on here claimed Allan couldn't play from the left as if he couldn't move, the 3 in that formation should be interchangeable so u can play from any position on the pitch, not just 1 position because that's where u start the game.
At least now we have the players to play that style!
Hail hail.

Glad to hear your good news old bhoy n I wish u nothing but good blessings. I agree mate, it's always great being a Tim but some might say especially now, treble treble invincibles, going for 10 in a row n as many more as we like, with our board finally acting like the big club we are n paying for quality n backing the manager.
Ajer has played well at Killie, can't stand them mind u, but I know what u mean he would benefit from Brendan's coaching. I hope it he doesn't see game time next season we could get him to maybe a top six side but the more he plays regular the more benefit it will be in the long run, I'd rather that than him spend a season coming off the bench, n getting the odd start, but he's still very young so plenty time yet.
Hope the 25th was amazing night for u
With your good news n it being the lions 50th, I watched the BBC documentary n Sean Fallon programme n it's just magic seeing it as it was, as it is now, I long to go over to Lisbon n play on the pitch with my son in the hoops, that's on my to do list.
In the heat of Lisbon the fans came in their thousands to see the bhoys become champions in 67.
