Brendan Rodgers seems to be echoing the thoughts of many of us that the financial gap between us and the PSGs and Barcelona's of this world isn't a good enough excuse for us not competing and getting closer to them. Despite all the talk about how good they are and they were excellent doesn't hide the fact that the other night was a total embarrassment that some of us seem to be accepting as inevitable due to a gap that can't be bridged.

But he seems to be suggesting a lack of ambition by the board with which I'd agree. In saying that Brendan has now criticised the fans, players and board but he could also maybe look a bit closer to home given that we've now suffered our two heaviest European defeats in our history under his leadership. ☘️.

Looks like we're FAVOURITES to sign this ODDSON Ed? ☘️.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 18:22:33
ED001/ ED007 is it true that if this goes ahead we have option to buy the lad for £10m, seems a big price for Celtic to even think about offering.

{Ed007's Note - People are speculating that the fee would be 10 million Euros but really nobody knows for sure yet if there is an option to buy or how much it will be. It would make sense though as if the fans take to him it would ease their pain - and ire - when Dembele leaves next summer.}

2.) 31 Aug 2017 18:45:45
Very clever IMO, If Duverne arrived your looking at four young French boys all happily plying there trade, with time on there side they will not be in a major hurry to leave IMO.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 19:11:54
If Duverne came in and no first teamers left that would be a sensational window!

4.) 31 Aug 2017 19:50:27
Is duverne still a possibility?

{Ed007's Note - It doesn't look like it mate.}

Southampton target Armstrong? Seriously hope not. ☘️.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 20:24:25
Theyve said vvd is not for sale and we should tell them the same we can't keep selling our best players.

2.) 03 Jul 2017 21:49:09
. and we definitely need to stop selling our players to a minion backwater club like Southampton. The only way they will see European action is on a clear day looking across the English Channel.

3.) 03 Jul 2017 22:16:14
They were in Europe last season WC.

4.) 03 Jul 2017 22:23:14
Wiltshire celt Southampton were in European action last season ya maniac! 😂😂😂 And I would hardly call them a backwater club, they've done well the past few years down there! Still confident Armstrong will sign a new deal soon, no need to panick! He's happy where he is with a manager who has taken his game to a new level!

5.) 04 Jul 2017 09:08:07
If Armstrong is as happy as some people suggest then please tell us why he hasn't signed a new contract yet? I'm pretty sure he'll have an agent to do his negotiations for him so I don't buy in to the focusing on matches just now talk. allhe has to do is turn up and sign once a deal is in place unless he fancies a crack elsewhere and he isn't going to sign an extension. I think Celtic should set a date to say sign or be sold as we can't afford players to leave for nothing.

6.) 04 Jul 2017 09:47:14
Maybe it just boils down to trust lads, Armstrong trusts the gaffer and vice versa that itll get sorted.

7.) 04 Jul 2017 11:28:53
I agree Jim If he's happy then sign, but u know it's never as simple as that mate. these things can drag on, and maybe it's the agent that's playing hard ball! The agents obviously seen the season he's just had and thought there's a better deal to be had. but your point about setting a date for him to sign is spot on. if he's no intention of signing before the transfer window shuts then we sell him and move on! He can't be allowed to get to January we're he's free to talk to other clubs and we possibly lose him for buttons!

8.) 04 Jul 2017 20:00:00
My point is that between 1984 and last year Southampton qualified for Europe once. They are as much as a backwater club as Sevco and I simply don't like the idea of selling on our players on to diddy teams.

9.) 05 Jul 2017 22:39:40
Armstrong has messed around long enough, ungrateful brat, if it hadn't been for the improvement made in him by Brendan Rodgers his agent would be talking to Championship teams or lower . Time to sign or leave the club.



21 May 2017 16:44:43
Ed-in your opinion is signing wee Paddy a possibility or a pipe dream? ☘️.


{Ed007's Note - It's definitely a possibility.}

1.) 21 May 2017 17:54:26
I would be absolutely delighted if we could. I heard his interview today on the radio on my way home and the interviewer asked him three times if he was staying. He answered "Who knows in football". He went on to thank the fans and sounded like he was choking a little. I took it as a farewell sort of thank you, but maybe the kid was just emotional at what he and his teammates had just achieved.

2.) 21 May 2017 21:03:04
I would like to thank the EDs for all their work on this site love it. We will b very lucky to get Paddy Roberts back he has been quality on and off the park for such a young man he sounds as if he loves it here he just loves playing football I just hope that he finds that here again next year HH.

{Ed007's Note - Thank you, Rich, you're very welcome.}

3.) 22 May 2017 09:59:54
Paddy would be our best signing from the king absolute class.

4.) 22 May 2017 18:39:54
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.



15 May 2017 07:59:19
Heard a wee whisper Grifiths is off to Fulham? Certainly hope not though. ☘️.


1.) 15 May 2017 22:40:48
Christ their talking about signing mcgeady for 2million on zombie page can'ts are nuts.

2.) 16 May 2017 11:29:14
must be on the glue again.

3.) 17 May 2017 21:16:27
Cannot be anything to the Griffith whisper . Anyone who had facts like this wouldn't confine himself to a whisper . He would. Shout it from the roof top.

Seen enough of the old version of these
new Glasgow derby games to know how unpredictable they can be but I think the Huns will have a go and will be well shafted by half time after which they will park the caravan in the second half as a damage limitation excercise when the dogs start barking. Strange despite all the excitement about Paddys return Florist must start and will. Think Grif will start too and put the game to bed but have a feeling we'll see a Mousse loose aboot the Big Hoose on Saturday. If I was a loyal follower fae Govan I'd be shittin masel. The gulf is wider than its ever been and will be harder to cross (oh shouldn't have used that word) than the Boyne! ☘️.


1.) 21 Sep 2017 19:48:59
I think this could well turn out to be the biggest hiding we have ever inflicted on them. In addition to wanting to tan their arses, there is so much competition for places for the Anderlect game, that I really think we will give them a serious doing.
Watching part of the game on Tuesday and then the whole game last night, the gulf in class is massive. Can't see anything other than a really really comfortable win.

2.) 21 Sep 2017 22:48:58
I'm predicting a 4-1 win for us but with Thomson in charge you just never know he's very incapable and card happy. Surely Pedro couldn't survive another £1brox humping.

3.) 22 Sep 2017 01:06:35
Loving the confidence bhoys I'm going for 0-4 there Latino players will lose there minds in this game when they get passed off the park lol to many scorers in the squad to predict scorers but I can't wait for it and all the huns I know are bricking it and as one of the brothers mentioned in an earlier post places for Europe at stack! Will b s joy to watch HH Bhoys and ghirls oh and the league cup draw I hope they get to the final would love to give them a record defeat in a final hh.

17 Sep 2017 02:17:12
After today I think BR might be having thoughts about playing with two strikers against the forces of darkness and evil. ☘️.


1.) 17 Sep 2017 07:55:53
Nah a think we will go 4-5-1 to try and stop them over running us in midfield they have Jack and dorrans two outstanding midfielders then superstar krankjar who's a modern day Roy Keane and the young boy canderel on the wing then if Pena can make it in time after 10am Saturday morning mass they have another world class midfielder.

2.) 17 Sep 2017 08:28:50
yeah after watching they wonderful performance in a 2-2 draw at real madrid - erm partick - we have not much to fear.

some player with a little talent and enough blue noses to energise them, but we should walk it.

maybe close then usual - but a professional performance from us, job done.

3.) 17 Sep 2017 09:40:46
They will get stuck in and we will get stuck right back in. Class should tell and if it does we are ripping them another new one.

The players should be hurting after the PSG game and who better to take that out on than the with the best squad in the country?

Bring it on.



15 Sep 2017 18:53:02
We've now got two retired centre halfs on the coaching staff and still cannot put a decent one on the park. For feck sake. ☘️.


1.) 15 Sep 2017 20:44:13
was thinking that myself.

maybe they'll make Biton Better.

2.) 15 Sep 2017 21:32:12
I'll play in goal if you play centre half JFP.

3.) 15 Sep 2017 21:55:20
Kolo is going to be more than a coach. He will be above Kennedy. Expect some back room staff changes. Rodgers is not a happy man. He will change the mentality or change the player. Too many accepting defeate at European level taking the easy way out.

4.) 15 Sep 2017 22:07:25
Johnnymac well said bud 🍀.

5.) 15 Sep 2017 22:43:23
Is Kolo registered as a player as well?

6.) 16 Sep 2017 00:47:05
I am still very disappointed about Tuesday night and feel that too many players who have been at Celtic long enough, were far too nervous, careless and took too long to get into the game.
We've been all round the houses about how good they were, but even BR said how poor we started the game and how many loose passes and hesitation there was.
I honestly thought that after the Barcelona humping, we would never allow a team to destroy us like that - and we showed against an excellent Man City side ( who were unbeaten and the pride of England) that we could rise to the occasion and put in a shift at the highest level.
It wasn't all one way traffic against Paris as we had plenty shots at goal and - eventually - much more possession, however conceding a soft penalty and an own goal never helped our case and I honestly think we could and should have made it a closer score-line.
There really needs to be a toughening-up and better concentration if we are to regain the pride and passion that is Celtic Park on champions league nights.

7.) 16 Sep 2017 08:26:45
Does no one see the problem if they bought a new CH when at that moment injurys meant we were light in the position? You think elralston would ever get a game if lustig was the right back? Der Boyata is now approaching fitness with Eric just behind him. So who plays and who sits on the bench wasting top wages? The new guy? It didn't make financial sense to do it and that's why they didn't do it. All bad timing for injurys not worth throwing millions at.

8.) 16 Sep 2017 08:47:00
i'd play a blind midget at centre half before bitton.

9.) 16 Sep 2017 09:24:57
Pedro a centre half would not have stopped 5 going past us. Players qualify and think job done. We all tell them we can't win the group and how hard it is. They should be under pressure to win every home game. If we don't qualify for europa they should be run out of town. Qualifying should be a given every year and then they need to earn their money not just give up. I think tuesday was a disgrace. Not the score but the way we performed. big kolo will sort that out.

10.) 16 Sep 2017 14:10:03
My post was a little off the original message but I was just touching on some comments from other posters that were screaming out for a new 5-8million champions league quality CH. it would just cause a headache when everyone is fit and a massive waste of money. We got skelped move on. It won't be the last time regardless who we play or but within our budget. The gulf is now untenable.

11.) 16 Sep 2017 20:11:39
£5-8 mill CL striker required to sort our problems? NEYNAR COST £195mill. Van Dyke worth £75mill. What would we get for £5mill. No point.

Positive and negative on Toure front for me. (1) without him we wouldn't have qualified for CL at that time and (2) he shat in the nest twice and cost us the Man City game. On balance therefore a plus overall but time to go for me.

Bollocks I think BR might sign Hayes as it's a long season and he's a hardy boy suited to Scottish football able to take a kicking or broken jaw with no referee protection. But I think BR still has high hopes for Christie as I do myself. ☘️.

Personally I think me and JB67 could play at centre half and still rip them a new rectum. Our biggest advantages are (1) the PSG defeat (2) they believe they're nearer us than they are I think deluded is the word and (3) Pedros a fud. So rather than sit in like Ross County and be difficult to break down I think they'll have a go which should make it a field day for Roberts, Florist, Sinclair, Dembelle, Grifiths or whoever plays up front. Even money is fantastically generous on the bookies part in my view! Prediction-Hun stands empty at half time. ☘️.

Like I've said all along I think the stick CG takes is very OTT. Aye he has his weak points but he's a fantastic shot stopper and outside Boruc and Forster he's the best keeper we've had at Celtic Park in my time. Not many bad keepers sold for £9m. ☘️.

Some build of a laddie for his age. He gave a good account of himself against PSG and thought he actually looked more assured than KT on the night. Great potential.
