Oh F**k, Brendan's off to Spartak Moscow now!


1.) 23 Oct 2018 07:31:45
They really don't want him here do they lol.

2.) 23 Oct 2018 22:41:00
It's really just becoming white noise now, he'll be linked to every half decent team on Earth from now to 10IAR.
They'll probably have him as Stevie G's successor when the messiah gets 'resigned'.

There we go, Brendan's off to Newcastle now!


1.) 13 Oct 2018 12:37:53
If BR feels like he isn't being backed at Celtic, Newcastle would be even worse. Only, they aren't even a top side in their league. Villa was more realistic and I laughed that one off. I think we'll all just have to get used to BR being linked with every single English job.

2.) 13 Oct 2018 12:51:20
Eventually he will leave and the press will celebrate that they got one right.

3.) 13 Oct 2018 13:52:43
this love affair with Steven Gerrard and Rangers that the Scottish media seem to be having will not last for long. They seem to be trying their hardest to upset the Celtic dressing room and back room at present. Its not just the constant media attention on trying to get Brendan a new job, it impacts on our ability to recruit. Who will come to work with BR and improve as a player under his guidance if they feel he will be gone 6 months after signing.

So we've broken the previous record for the number of consecutive wins in the SC. Another one bites the dust. Have we still got a problem with recruitment?


1.) 11 Feb 2019 08:58:12
Sometimes, yes.

2.) 11 Feb 2019 09:41:15
Last summer was a shocking window, but it seems a million miles away after one of the busiest January transfer periods I can remember, since these 'windows' started.
There's no doubt the additions have given us a huge boost in quality and confidence with a run of seven wins, 21 goals scored and none conceded and there's a healthy competition for places (even allowing for a horrendous string of injuries) , keeping everyone on their toes.
The goalkeeping switch to Bain has worked very well and the resurgence of Broony to top form after that period of uncertainty has been magnificent.

Loan signings are sometimes a gamble and are a temporary solution to personnel and quality deficiencies, but while we have such a huge, expensive squad eating up financial resources, it was the only sensible option at this time and so far it looks like a master-stroke, with maybe options to extend and a great way to build positive relations with other clubs for future ventures.

3.) 11 Feb 2019 18:11:16
Ok, so we’ve done a double treble which nobody has ever done before, we’re on our way to a treble treble which blows our own double treble out the water and we’ve broken the run of cup wins that was set by oldco with their overspending and EBTs you guys think you could do it better?

4.) 11 Feb 2019 20:10:47
COYBIG you're being ridiculous. You asked if there was a problem with recruitment, to which the answer was yes. Then you start accusing people of thinking they could personally do better than a treble treble? On what planet does that make sense? There are clearly problems with our recruitment at times considering we've recently signed Compper, Hendry, Gamboa, Mulumbu, de Vries, Allan.

5.) 11 Feb 2019 21:51:18
It was a rhetorical question. I didn’t expect anyone to come back and say ‘yes’. On what planet does it make sense to question the recruitment of a club who is going through one it’s most successful periods in it’s history? That wasn’t a rhetorical question but I’ll answer it for you. It makes sense in the world of some nerd who spends most of his time playing PlayStation games and thinks he knows the ins and outs of the transfer market as a result. The fact that we’ve signed Comper, Hendry, Gamboa, Mulumbu, De Vries and Allan absolutely does not ‘clearly show’ there are problems with recruitment, even if you were to include the word ‘fact’ afterwards. Most successful clubs have big squads and most of them don’t play because you can only put 11 players on the pitch at a time. That’s why the bigger or wealthier clubs loan players out which is why we’ve got Weah, Toljen, Benkovic, Burke etc. We will seek to loan a few of our players out to give them game time in the hope that they come back ready to play first team football. If you are of the opinion that we have a recruitment problem, then logically you must have an opinion on what we are doing wrong and how we should change it to improve, therefore by default, you must think you could do better.

Going to be in Leicester on Wed night. Just wondered if anyone knows a good Celtic shop to go and watch Sevco getting turned over at Kilmarnock? I notice Celtic Bars list 'The Royal Standard' as a Celtic Bar but I've lost faith in it recently with a couple of visits to pubs that were showing pub league games in preference to Celtic games. Any ideas?


1.) 21 Jan 2019 21:57:26
Apparently they show the games upstairs in the Standard going by the Leicester Hoops sc twitter page.

2.) 21 Jan 2019 23:36:47
Thanks Bravetart, might give it a go then. I suppose it depends on whether they show the Sevco games as well. Some Celtic pubs don’t.

3.) 22 Jan 2019 21:55:18
I don't know why any Celtic supporter would want to watch Rangers2012, surely Celtic match must be on on an illegal stream somewhere in the area.



03 Jan 2019 21:07:19
For all those whining and moaning and suggesting they know how to negotiate better than Peter Lawell, I have a question. Do you have any experience of running an organisation with a turnover in excess of £100M? If the answer is yes, then I welcome your input. If the answer is no, I suggest you go back to your PlayStations and concentrate on something you know about.

Guess that's the whole forum ethos; everyone has an opinion which is no more or less valid than the next.

2.) 03 Jan 2019 22:34:39
Everyone is entitled to an opinion but as to their validity, that’s a different question. I think I could confidently say that not one of us on here could lace Pedro’s boots when it comes to negotiating and if anyone thought they could, I’d pay money to watch them try.

Sinclair's finished and Edouard was a waste of money. Roger's signings have been woeful. oh wait a minute, they're both superb, that Brendan Rogers is a genius.


1.) 26 Dec 2018 21:58:43
Couldn’t believe Rogic didn’t get taken off and CalMac got subbed but not sure if it was because Lewis Ferguson seemed to be man marking him the subs made the big difference let’s hope KT is fit for Saturday but I fear not.

2.) 26 Dec 2018 21:59:47
Shocking line up and substitutes COYBIG
Playing Sinclair and bring eddy on.
Total joke.
I for one will be sending a strongly worded email to both Rogers and lawwel over these selections.

3.) 26 Dec 2018 22:24:31
Campsie I wasn't happy about rogic staying on with McGregor going off but at end of the day Rogers was right and I was wrong. Eddy has a major say in all 3 goals.
Manager changed the game and won the points.

4.) 26 Dec 2018 23:19:04
Just like he did when we went down to 10 men at Ibrox last season. In Brendan we trust.

5.) 27 Dec 2018 09:52:38
Rogic and McGregor were awful yesterday but we got there and the manager proved his worth again HH.

6.) 27 Dec 2018 11:14:32
CalMac was pretty much man marked for the length of time he was on park however when he did get free his clever run set up the goal Christie’s ball was excellent but CalMac is a worker Rogic has been playing the last wee while as if he has diving boots on. Can only think BR was trying to throw a bit of confusion in with taking CalMac off with Ferguson man marking him.

I had my eight year old daughter at CP last night and she asked me at one point why so many Celtic supporters were shouting at the players. I told her they were angry because they weren't playing well and she responded by saying 'but shouting at them will only make them play worse'. Then after the second goal went in she asked me why everyone was leaving and I said it was because we were losing and it there was very little chance of coming back from it. She then said 'but won't that make the players sad'? I felt really proud of her for the fact that she thinks about things the same way as I do. There for 90 minutes, win, lose or draw.


{Ed007's Note - I always hated folk that left early and most of them were in the snobby seats in the South Stand.}

Never understood it. If it’s only about the result, why not just watch it on the telly or listen to it on the radio. What would you be rushing away for on a Saturday evening? Strictly Come Dancing?

Makes it all the sweeter when miracles happen.

Gerry, my response to that ridiculous post from GGGG was a touch less diplomatic but Ed has chosen not to publish it. It’s a little bit disappointing but I guess I’ll have to use a bit more tact in these situations. However, my point is that I agree with you completely and perhaps I should avoid the site when the moonhowlers are out in force.

Good shout Kwaj. As I’ve said before, we need to stop subscribing to SKY and BT as this only helps to widen the gap between us and Europe’s elite.

DonJim, I would move for double my wages but I don’t get paid £15k/ week. What can these guys buy with £30k/ week that they can’t afford on £15k/ week?

Could do with working on his crosses but despite that I thought he was superb as well.

We’ve been slagging the Sevvies for weeks for the same thing so I have to admit, I was a wee bit embarrassed by it. My first thought when he jumped the hoarding was ‘Oh no, don’t get booked. Was Morelos off the pitch at Livingston?

BR has steadfastly refused to resort to a long ball game no matter the situation. Playing a second string would be no difference to playing a long ball game as it would represent a deviation from the plan so I think he’ll put out the strongest 11 and try to build from the back. I know a lot of you think it’s futile because it’s not working but I believe in BR and it might take a few years of this before we get there but I think he will eventually.

You have to hand it to Jabba. He can certainly mobilise the gullibles.
