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.

I'm under no illusion regarding the gulf in class. In the main but not always you get what you pay for. But-we won't put 7 past Brechin and most agreed the gap between Celtic and Brechin is bigger than the gap between Celtic and PSG. So for me and I'm a massive Brendan fan who hopes he's here for years to come he has demonstrated (1) he can set up a team to attack anybody even last night we'd chances (2) he is tactically astute and can change a game when its not going to plan but (3) what he hasn't shown is that he can put out a team set up not to lose. Even the great Jock Stein had to do that on one occasion with the greatest Celtic team of all time. ☘️.


1.) 23 Nov 2017 19:26:20
I actually thought we where better last night than then home game psg have world class man for man apart from maybe there keeper before the game I would have took 4-1 the problem we have is to many individual errors.

2.) 23 Nov 2017 19:48:16
Spot on JFP. Brendan seems unable to set up a defensively minded team when facing obviously better opponents. I'm not sure why he sees this as such a no go but hopefully this will change. You can't lose if you don't concede. But there seems to be a lot of people on here who forget (or weren't born) the genuinely bad YEARS (not matches) . I was born in the mid seventies and growing with them winning 9 in a row was real embarrassment.

3.) 23 Nov 2017 19:49:03
Agreed Gordo I think we were better last night but I think we're still better than 7-1. I'd have taken a 3-0 defeat but I think we seem to lack belief plus as I said I think Rodgers needs a reality check with respect to his purist approach. ☘️.

4.) 23 Nov 2017 20:08:59
Agreed VT! I grew up watching Celtic win 9 in a row and thought as a wee laddie Celtic just always won the league! Think how hard I took their 9 in a row and their huddle at Celtic Park. God Bless Tommy Burns it took a greater toll on him. But I wouldn't swap ma Celtic top for all the EPL tops in the world. Brendan needs to wisen up though to the fact you need to fight the fight the way the odds suit you. ☘️.

5.) 23 Nov 2017 21:03:01
Too true mate. When almost all of EPL lot are bust,
we'll still be here. Hail hail.

6.) 23 Nov 2017 21:19:13
I wouldn't say we lacked belief as we could have been 2 up before they scored I think we just crumbled jfp we can only learn from this I can see Brendan Rodgers thinking about not changing because would oh rather lose trying to win or lose trying not to get beat.

7.) 23 Nov 2017 22:14:01
It was like Tyson v Bruno when we scored. Then the commentator said “he’s hurt Tyson” When we all new he’d just woke up a monster (PSG) . We will probably have better luck in Europa but don’t really like the Thursday night stuff. It wrecks our domestic scene.

8.) 24 Nov 2017 09:06:19
Jfp1888 we could easily score 7 against Brechin
Last season we took
6 off Kilmarnock
5 off the rangers
4 off aberdeen
All SPFL teams.



15 Nov 2017 17:17:30
Keane is a total prize fud that we should never have signed. Can't be arsed with the finish my career at Celtic pish. Come to us in your prime like Henrik or feck off. ☘️.




08 Nov 2017 18:57:55
As Bishop Joe Devine said at TBs funeral he'd like to quote the Scotland manager who said 'The greatest thing about becoming Celtic manager was getting to know Tommy Burns as a friend'. You need more than an ability to play football or manage to be a Celtic legend. Tommy wasn't just a fantastic player who was underrepresented at international level because that's how it was then we played some of the best football I've seen Celtic play under him with Pierre, Cadette, Di Canio and Andreas Thom in the team. Then there's Tommy the man. A man whose life was his faith, family and football. Who even tried to bridge the religious gap by who he requested carry his coffin. Name Lennoxtown after Tommy every day of the week. Name me a Celtic player who is a better role model for the kids we're training there not to mention the effect meeting him had on Brendan Rodgers. Sad to see the subject is even up for debate. ☘️.


1.) 08 Nov 2017 19:49:08
Jfp1888. Great post.

2.) 08 Nov 2017 19:27:01
There is no better role model JFP. The words hero and legend are vastly overused nowadays but Tommy deserves both wholeheartedly.

3.) 08 Nov 2017 19:32:14
Here, here. Well said JFP1888.

4.) 08 Nov 2017 21:25:43
Defo jfp his heart is what made him the legend we all love one player right now could well be the next Mr Celtic and that is young Tierney.

5.) 08 Nov 2017 21:35:48
Spot on with everything you said mate. Great post ☘.

6.) 09 Nov 2017 08:36:41
wee joe done my confirmation jfp.



04 Nov 2017 09:38:59
Just a suggestion but if there was to be a minutes silence for any reason and I didn't wish to acknowledge it I would stay outside the ground until it was over. No need to give the media any more ammunition to fire at the club which should be our primary concern. So, if you can't stay silent irrespective of your own personal beliefs and I have mine stay outside. There's no excuse for acting like a moron by booing it or singing over it. Just my thoughts. ☘️.


1.) 04 Nov 2017 11:05:33
Has anybody else realised its always us playing away on the Poppy Day? Coincidence or a deliberate action as they hope it's disrupted by away fans even though they know this is what they want.

Please observe. In silence even outside the ground. They have set us up, don't play into their hands.

2.) 04 Nov 2017 15:31:40
And the huns are always at home.

3.) 04 Nov 2017 16:09:40
The only reason Sevco at home is so they conduct their annual cheez fest! It is the cringeworthy thing I have ever seen!



01 Nov 2017 19:50:41
Rodgers is a good manager and after 10 in a row will go on and do even greater things.


1.) 02 Nov 2017 07:05:51
Because Brendan Rodgers is here for 10 in a row, 10 in a row


2.) 02 Nov 2017 16:36:12
Aye JFP. Ten in a row and a European final.

3.) 02 Nov 2017 17:17:15
You might be right VT. You might be right! ☘️.

4.) 02 Nov 2017 18:37:43
Here's hoping mate. Somewhere nice and warm too. Makes the beer taste even better.

5.) 02 Nov 2017 19:57:58
Lyon here we come hh.

6.) 03 Nov 2017 11:42:34
Unless he goes to arsenal in the summer lol 😁.

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. ☘️.

Gordo-Burley and Armstrong wear the jersey and take our wages that doesn't mean they bleed green and white. KT, Paul McStay and Tommy Burns bled green and white. Did I misread your post or did YOU not raise the fact that Broonie who I've described as earning the right to be considered one of our greatest captains as having 'grew up a Hun'? Why is that relevant? ☘️.

Gordo what are you smoking. The point I was making that there was nothing posh about Burley who was as thick as the proverbial in the neck of a bottle? And who feckn mentioned Broons religion or what he grew up as? You! It's of absolutely no interest to me. I said Broonie has earned the right to be considered a great Celtic captain? As the great Jock Stein said 'Celtic weren't my first love but they'll be my last'. I'd have Broons picture on the outside of Paradise now. Go read my post again look up the word apologise in the dictionary and I'm here if you feel sorry I misinterpreted your post is in order. You lost me. ☘️.
