Nae live chat today Ed? ☘️.


{Ed007's Note - Ed033's working on it mate, sorry.}

1.) 26 Nov 2017 14:38:59
Cheers Ed.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

2.) 29 Nov 2017 08:32:15
Well ED I think that this game tonight will be the biggest challenge this year to our domestic run tight pitch nae DM though we have the Griff. How do u think BR will change it up I think it could be Two or three changes with this starting line up Gordon
Patrick R

{Ed007's Note - I'd be happy with that starting line-up, Rich.}

3.) 29 Nov 2017 12:55:17
I'd go with:


Gamboa Boyata Simunovic Tierney

Brown Ntcham

Roberts Rogic Sinclair

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. ☘️.




31 Aug 2017 17:50:37
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.

Well done Charly and the Bhoys. Fantastic performance all round. Not a failure in the team so little point in singling anybody out but as I've said before Brown has earned the right to be considered one of Celtic's great captains. Florist immense. Ncham gets better every time I see him. A pass never to forget from Musonda and what a finish from McGreggor having taken it on his chest first. A night to be truly proud.

On a negative note I thought the referee was horrendous gave us nothing and no protection and thought they were dirty not hard and did some feckn rolling about. ☘️

Well done to Celtic and Brendan Rodgers.


1.) 16 Feb 2018 14:07:21
JFP: bang on mate, and THAT REF what game was he watching. shocking decisions at times.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 19:13:59
Masonic refs get everywhere! 😂🤣😂.



05 Feb 2018 18:36:48
Steve Clarke has more chance of being the next Celtic manager with Lennon the Lurgan Hunskeler at his side than them becoming the next Scotland manager and assistant respectively. Not overly concerned to be honest but think EBT WATTIE is a step backwards. I also think the Huns missed a trick not going for Tommy Wright rather than Dougal out of Father Ted. ☘️.




04 Feb 2018 13:13:06
Forget Kilmarnock at the plastic park. Facts and League tables don't lie. We've only scored 8 goals more than the Govanites and they've played a game less. Hardly reflects the level of superiority we! re claiming or should be expecting given the relative financial position of the two clubs.


1.) 04 Feb 2018 14:48:04
Everyone needs to chill.
In 2 weeks time we will get a better picture of the players bottle and mentality. We could be 11pts clear, qf of sc and last 16 of europa. You'd be happy the first two as i don't think we stand a chance vs zenit.
Big few weeks coming up. Next three games are at home so let's cheer the bhoys on.

2.) 04 Feb 2018 16:56:15
The issue is we should have a chance against Zenit. Posters here saying that we have only lost 2 games in the last 18months. The true fact is we have lost 2 out of the last 5 or 6 games. That's the true picture. We have not won 4 in a row all season.



03 Feb 2018 20:48:06
Some goal from McGinn at the Bronx today only bettered by his celebration. Still think he has a bit of Broony dig and could do us a turn.


1.) 03 Feb 2018 21:41:12
He can be a wee bit up and down JFP. But he's young and that's what you expect. When he's good he's very very good and has tons of potential. He also loves skelping zombies. If we don't sign him in the summer we'll regret it.

2.) 03 Feb 2018 21:50:20
Think he is a lot more creative than Brown, but not as tenacious, think they would have played well in the same midfield, but unfortunately don't think that will happen, think the problem Brendan has now he has too many talented midfielders, and instead of playing the ones that make the best team, he is playing the best players on paper which is not necessarily the best team, and if he does hit on a formation that plays well together, but he knows he has really good players sitting it out, well in the next game he gives these really good players a game, and it all goes to pot, instead of sticking with the team that played well together, it reminds me of what Ronnie, praise him, praise him, blessed be his name, used to do, but Brendan is on a much higher plane than Ronnie, I am confident he will get the team back on track soon, these defeats against Hearts and Killie, will turn out to be a blessing in disguise, this invincibility crap was going too far, the players know now they are going to have to scrap to get a result, every game they will have to burst a gut to get a result, this will help them to win another treble and get as far as possible in Europe,

3.) 03 Feb 2018 22:10:54
People forget how raw Brown was when he 1st arrived he has taken time to grow into the player he is now, and for long enough he was being used on the right for Hibs. In my opinion McGinn is a better player than Brown was at this age. He would be an asset to Celtic. We could have done with his drive and energy today.

4.) 03 Feb 2018 23:22:14
Sign McGinn ☘️.



31 Jan 2018 18:43:25
How did Musonda look last night? I know nothing about the boy. Is he a starter in a European game? Where does he play?


1.) 31 Jan 2018 19:01:19
He played mostly on the right wing as an inside forward.

He was quick, good dribbler, good passer but needs a bit of work on his shooting and decision making.

A few of his moves stand out. Was one were he drew two Hearts defenders to him at the corner of the box and then played a lovely back heel to the player bombing past him on the outside.

Another one, he had the ball and the Hearts players came towards him and he lifted the ball over the top of the onrushing players to one of his team mates running in behind.

He then created space inside the box for himself and it looked like he was about to shoot but squared it to his team mate just coming into the box but he fluffed the shot.

Would rate him about 6.5/ 7 out of 10 but I reckon there is a lot more to come.

2.) 31 Jan 2018 19:34:43
Cheers RAW 👍☘️.

3.) 31 Jan 2018 19:54:11

Did we ever get to the bottom of whether Paddy didn't sign because he didn't want to or because Man City wouldn't let him go? ☘️.

Jackson Irvine, Tam Rogic and Skippy are not bad examples of what we could pick up from the Ozzie league.

I don't understand why Eric is considered shining bright and worse than what we have available at centre half? But then again I don't have a suntan or sparkling white teeth so it's not my problem to sort it out and not what I'm paid for! ☘️.

KenLikeEh Broony has earned the right to be considered a great Celtic captain and a true Celt. And as you say he won't be easy to replace. His game against Man City will live long in the memory and he has replicated that performance fairly consistently since. ☘️.
