Any truth that Big Forster will sign tomorrow and will be paraded at the game tomorrow night.


1.) 21 Aug 2019 22:22:11
Hope not.

2.) 22 Aug 2019 06:23:06
Please No.

3.) 22 Aug 2019 07:18:52
Why would u hope not he’s far better than either the current two and we are an injury to Gordon away from a youngster playing.

4.) 22 Aug 2019 07:45:28
Better than what we have in there right now.

5.) 22 Aug 2019 10:50:37
Why's he number 3 now then? Because of his good form? Joke off a signing, as bad as bringing Emilio back, people remembering what they had done and not what their doing or done recently .

6.) 22 Aug 2019 11:42:04
Just because he's not playing at the minute does it mean he's in poor form it could simply be that the manager doesn't rate him as highly as another keeper at the club we've all seen it before at Celtic players not getting a game because the manager prefers someone else.



15 Apr 2019 19:51:26
Is there any truth in us being interested in Graham Potter of Swansea?


{Ed007's Note - I think it's more a case of he's interested in us but according to some he is friendly with people involved at Celtic.}

1.) 15 Apr 2019 20:24:43
Cheers ED.
I wasn't sure if it was just more SMSM paper talk.

{Ed007's Note - Potter's actually one of the better names that's been linked imo. He's a modern thinking manager/coach and I'd take him over the likes of a Moyes or Keane type. Read up on him, he's an interesting character, this is just from his Wiki page:

Potter has been recognised for his "progressive" and "unconventional" coaching methods. At Ostersund, he encouraged his players and staff to engage in community activities, such as performing in theatre and music productions designed to take them out of their comfort zone.

Potter describes his teams as "tactically flexible, attacking, [and] possession-based. At Ostersund, he deployed a flexible 3–5–2 formation centred on ball possession. Former Celtic and Barcelona player Henrik Larsson commented on Potter's pattern of play, stating he "played all different kinds of systems, starting off a match one way, and then halfway through they started playing a different system, and then they ended up with a third system. And all the players knew exactly what they were doing."

As a young coach, Potter studied the training methods of Roberto Martínez at Swansea and became inspired by his possession-based approach, along with the "holistic" training principles he observed during his travels to Spain.
Potter also cites the philosophy of Pep Guardiola and Raymond Verheijen’s periodisation model among his influences.

Marcelo Bielsa had this to say about him:

"He's English, he's a modern coach, he has new ideas, he brings new ideas. [Swansea is] a team that takes care of how they move the ball... in their style, the goalkeeper and defenders build from the back. And for me it’s the feature that you could underline from Swansea [under Potter]"

2.) 15 Apr 2019 20:33:50
What do you think of potter ed? You think he would be good for Celtic or we too big for him?

{Ed007's Note - I think we would need a proper DOF type to work alongside Potter so that Pedro isn't running the footballing side again.}

3.) 15 Apr 2019 21:14:05
If we decided to go down the dof route, who would you like to see in that role for us?

{Ed007's Note - Honestly I don't know. It's such a specialised job and the guys that do it are usually go unnoticed to the rank and file supporters like us. What about ex-Chelsea Technical Director Michael Emenalo who left Monaco a couple of months ago? It's never going to happen and would cost a fortune but how many of you guys have even heard of him - no offence btw I only know about these guys from doing the sites and talking to Ed001 and Ed002 etc.}

4.) 15 Apr 2019 21:29:09
Ed I've heard a few time this season we want to go down the route of a DOF.
Did they not say Kennedy has been looked at for the role?

{Ed007's Note - A newspaper - I can't remember which one - ran the story not long after Rodgers left about Kennedy being promoted but I don't know how much truth there was in it.}

5.) 15 Apr 2019 22:48:57
I remember him doing well with Ostersund, took the team from League 4 to the top division in consecutive season then got through the Europa League group and gave Arsenal a real fright in the last 32.
If Lawwell is looking for a guy to come in and maybe work on a smaller budget, he may be the guy although I don't know if they would pay the compensation that Swansea might ask for.

6.) 16 Apr 2019 09:10:58
I certainly think we need to look at a DoF. Particularly if we're going to go with Lennon as has been said PL will run the footballing side of things and he doesn't have a footballing brain. As Ed points out a lot are unknown to most of us and the more reputable figues, we'd have no chance. After a bit of digging what about Jordi Cruyff? Currently with Maccabi Tel Aviv, so shouldn't be out of reach. He helped transform Larnaca to be the first Cypriot side to qualify for the Europa. And then they did it again the following season. Now in Israel Maccabi Tel Aviv are the big boys again after a long period of not being. They've also enjoyed a credible go in Europe too. He seems to like teams playing attractive, more importantly winning football. He has attracted good managers and players and he must have a decent contacts list. Just a suggestion.

7.) 16 Apr 2019 11:20:54
Scrap that he's managing in China 😅 Feck it let's just give John Park a ring.

8.) 16 Apr 2019 15:44:50
Didn't Swansea give man City a real fright recently I didn't see the game but I heard a quote that Swansea played more like City than city did or something like that he sounds like the type of manager I would like someone who has the tactical knowledge to change things quickly when needed.
reflecting back to Valencia games you could see fairly early on in the first game we needed to change something but it took Rodgers till the second game to do it.

9.) 16 Apr 2019 16:20:30
He did well at Ostersunds, but rising to the celtic job would be meteoric by any standards. So he beat arsenal. One to watch for sure tho.

10.) 16 Apr 2019 19:19:41
If he comes I hope he brings Daniel James with him.

11.) 22 Apr 2019 15:14:37
With Potter at the helm Swansea are currently sitting 12th in the Championship 28 points adrift of leaders Norwich, as one of the teams relegated with the payoff that’s not exactly a roaring endorsement for him getting the Celtic job in my estimations .

12.) 22 Apr 2019 23:22:10
Anyone think Harry Redknapp could be a good shout for DOF if we was going down that route?



28 Jan 2019 19:19:20
Just read a report claiming the new American boy Gutman has walked out on us and hasn't been seen in over a week.
Is this true or is it more paper pish?


1.) 28 Jan 2019 20:03:57
What paper jonbhoy? Can't see such a story anywhere?

2.) 28 Jan 2019 21:56:20
He is supposed to be back in America and considering other options, Celtic supposed to be not interested in him any more.

{Ed007's Note - It would appear that we withdrew the offer from the gossip I'm hearing...... Seems a bit bizarre to me....}

3.) 28 Jan 2019 22:05:06
Yeah that’s a strange wan maybe he was just on trial and didn’t see him as a player anything on Perez boy Ed?

{Ed007's Note - I've no idea. There's really no need to get excited about players that will go into development projects, Rich.}

4.) 28 Jan 2019 22:30:25
Nae bother cheers Ed BRs interview the day wasn’t convinced with his answer to any more signings possibly coming in but we will c hope we get in a defender in.

5.) 28 Jan 2019 22:35:23
A said the same when these boys were over from America, they're development players that would've got a bit of coverage in the celtic view but now the way social media is, their names are all over the place I don't expect to see them for a long time and I certainly don't count them as signings.

6.) 28 Jan 2019 23:29:51
Seen quite a few saying him and Shved have been told to stay away until deadline day.

Probably a way for lawwell to make it look like we were still working on transfers.

Imo the two Americans are pointless anyway. Probably just disappear.

7.) 28 Jan 2019 23:25:49
Got it from here, like I said it might be pish but I hadn't heard the club announcing the deal yet so I wasn't sure what was happening:


8.) 29 Jan 2019 11:10:57
Too many development players that have dissapeared over the years.

9.) 29 Jan 2019 12:58:12
He'll end up at Sevco and they'll be gloating thinking it's a coup.



18 Jan 2019 20:04:12
So now the BR has stated YAYA isn't a target and Man U said you McTomley isn't going anywhere are we going to bring in a DM or just a right back.
I can't see us signing a CD since Boyata and Compper don't seem to be going anywhere and Bitton is fit again.


1.) 18 Jan 2019 22:21:41
Omar Ellabadelliou, full back, in on Monday, sorry about spelling of surname.

2.) 18 Jan 2019 22:29:27
Tamtam where u hearing this?

3.) 18 Jan 2019 23:22:33
Not a chance he wants to stay where he is I heard.

4.) 19 Jan 2019 09:26:13
Whell there’s a pic of him at a Greek airport Friday night and there ament to have a game today so fingers crossed.

5.) 19 Jan 2019 10:03:41
I think he is flying out to his clubs game false alarm as per.

6.) 19 Jan 2019 10:48:26
He’s no coming we have enough RBs maybe no the right wan but they are no getting any more Ralston should be given his chance Gamboa is no cutting it and Lustig is still recovering from the World Cup it his age it’s taking it out him. There has to be big clear out Commper now if I didn’t do my job I would be sacked for being rubbish at it so there are two reasons for being removed. CHs you could play them all along the back 4 and still have one or two to n the bench Boyata should’ve been given marching orders he didn’t play when we needed him he could’ve left got money and then reinvest but no he is going for nothing where is the business sense in that PL is renound for his business sense where was he that day off buying some rubbish with his Boness money? There was a post before the window by someone who said that there would be signings but no major work done but if BR got what he wants then u will see them go. Well let’s see and judge at the end of the season HH.

7.) 21 Jan 2019 14:11:17
Well today is Monday. Is it another Monday you were thinking about? I hope you’re right, but we both know that’s not going to happen.



07 Jan 2019 11:55:59
Does anyone know if young Arzani is still with the club.
I wasn't sure if Man City recalled him after the injury and the deal was cancelled.


1.) 07 Jan 2019 17:17:51
As far as I know he's back at city for treatment but will return when he's fit.

2.) 07 Jan 2019 17:56:20
Cheers Steph.

3.) 07 Jan 2019 22:05:02
Arzani will be a while yet, was it not a full knee recon?

4.) 08 Jan 2019 07:26:41
A think he's out till may. Can see his loan being extended, is there an option to buy do u know.

I see Rodgers has signed a new contract at Leicester, I guess that means he will be off in the summer.


1.) 06 Dec 2019 16:33:51
He 100% played for that! What a kn08.

2.) 06 Dec 2019 16:55:10
He’s a fud.

3.) 06 Dec 2019 18:06:57
He was already on £7 million a year.
He will have a clause in his contract, that if certain clubs come in for him, Leicester will need to release him.

4.) 06 Dec 2019 18:08:12
Can you answer one question jfp1888 why did he leave and can you answer one more why did Martin oneil leave why did lennon leave and come back and Rodgers left why? You must know calling him that name so please your knowledge cheers then I can sleep better in my bed knowing we set records under his guidence as you know the answer.

5.) 06 Dec 2019 18:35:17
Jinky88, that's some "one question" 🤣.

6.) 06 Dec 2019 18:48:40
Jinky he left because could not wait to go back to the land of milk and honey! So much so that he walked out on the eve of an important game at tynecastle and tried to take the entire coaching staff with him! The life long Celtic man was quite happy to leave his boyhood club in the lurch smack bang in the middle of an unprecedented treble treble! He’s a rat and Leicester fans will find that out soon enough! Hope u sleep better now its been explained to you!

7.) 06 Dec 2019 19:58:01
I don't know how people don't get that the problem with Rodger IS NOT that he left.
It was HOW he left.
He left right in the middle of a season
He left on the eve of an important game
He tried to gut our club of it's full coaching staff.
He never even had the decency to speak to the 1st team player.

Players and managers come and go but most leave with more dignity than that.

8.) 06 Dec 2019 19:58:04
So the treble treble and the ivincibles and all the levels he took us too mentioned nothing about the players he made into fitter and stronger players rember lennon won with his team so I think you were graced with a good time as him as manager why can you put all the blame on him managers leave and it happens he was not very good the way he left but I respect what he done for our outlook and fitness he brought to the club and the way he kept going but everybody has to think he done well at celtic.

9.) 06 Dec 2019 20:40:16
How many pumpings did we take in Europe under the rat. I am not lennons biggest fan but we haven't been pumped once under lennon and I am now glad lennon took the job he has proved me wrong so many times this season already.

10.) 06 Dec 2019 21:03:16
Jinky mate, are you related to saint Brendan or something? You're fairly fighting his corner anyway. But the facts remain. No one can argue with his achievements, but the way he conducted himself when he left was appalling, and for that he'll never be held in the same regard as the greats. because he's nothing but a rat. A rat who won trophies, but a rat none the less. Good riddance.

11.) 06 Dec 2019 21:14:26
Oneils wife was ill.

12.) 06 Dec 2019 21:24:27
Last but not least he ruined a good Christmas song and even worse a hymn.

13.) 06 Dec 2019 21:49:51
Again no one disputes his record or achievements.
But he soiled his legacy by the way he left.

What kind of man doesn't even take the time to say goodbye to the men who have fought tooth and nail for him to rebuild his reputation?
They deserved that much at least did they not jinky?

14.) 06 Dec 2019 22:55:38
At least we're not bitter 😂.

15.) 06 Dec 2019 22:59:40
Kev hits the nail on the head! Not the fact he left because we all accept that managers and players move on! But the way the rat went about leaving is unforgivable and will forever we remembered Over any trophies he won! I would gladly not see his face or hear him talk rubbish every again! Every word that comes out his mouth about our club was and always will be utter lies! Good riddance!

16.) 06 Dec 2019 23:27:01
guys i think jinky is on the sauce tonight.
any celtic supporter should never need to ask
why he was a RAT.
the only thing that man loves is himself and money.
the word loyalty is not in his vocabulary and we
are well rid.
jinky sober up wee man.
hail hail.

17.) 07 Dec 2019 07:26:03
jinky. you actual trying to defend that rodent Rodgers.

18.) 07 Dec 2019 07:42:05
Bang on Kev. As I said he’s a fud.

19.) 07 Dec 2019 09:30:50
That's your opinion danny and if you think that but record's were set and that's what matters moving on and be a fitter and stronger team now we are reaping the benifits as lennon learned a lot as he has proved the doubters wrong records set again so don't be so bitter enjoy being in green heaven and it's going to get better as we are competing in Europe managers don't crazy things but he has to live with it but we are a brilliant team that's what matters happy Xmas Danny have good green one.

20.) 07 Dec 2019 09:55:30
Rodgers would sell his gran to make a buck.
Everytime I see his face I change my TV to the horror Chanel it's an easier watch. He ruined everything he did by the way he left us literally just walked out it's like he cheated on us. We where all on his roller coaster he jumped ship and nearly took all the gears with him.

21.) 07 Dec 2019 10:16:06
Spot on Andy! A rat and always will be one! Jinky seems to have a selective memory to be honest! But hey ho each to their own I guess! 😆.



06 Oct 2019 05:15:30
Hi Ed
Have you heard any news regarding Nick Hammond signing on full time or if we are looking for someone else.
I think Lennon mentioned he wanted Hammond to join permanently but its went quiet.


{Ed007's Note - Hammond is still working for Celtic mate but I don't know if he has signed full-time, Lennon mentioned last week that Hammond was working on January targets.}

1.) 06 Oct 2019 11:07:41
If he responsible for signings in the transfer window his record so far warrants a permanent deal for me.

2.) 06 Oct 2019 12:55:10
Cheers Ed, I'm not long back from holiday and just catching up with everything.

{Ed007's Note - 👍



01 Sep 2019 16:33:14
Elhamed - Outstanding, Boli - Outstanding, Bitton - Outstanding, Jullien showing why we paid £7m, Brown - Oustanding, The rest of the team were excellent and Big Forster had feck all to do.

Lennon was spot on with his tactics and subs.

Great day overall.


1.) 01 Sep 2019 17:04:45
Julliene is struggling to walk, he's got defoe and morelos is his back pocket.

2.) 02 Sep 2019 10:44:25
Julien stood out for me, great tackles, interceptions and blocks. Reminiscent of Mjallby. Wonder if we we would have conceded 4 to Cluj if he played. Big Eddie is invaluable, big game player.



14 May 2019 11:27:21
Hi ed
Wondering if you could help, discussing the CL next year with a few people and I mentioned
because there are 2 English teams in the CL final who are both in the PL top 4, it means that there could be 6 English teams in the CL next year.
The winners this year will go straight into the group so the 5th placed in the PL gets a spot but because Arsenal are 5th in the PL and if they win the EL it would mean Man U gets a spot.
Hope this makes sense.


{Ed007's Note - The maximum amount of teams any country can have playing in the CL is five. Man City, Liverpool, Chelsea and Spurs have already qualified for the 2019-20 CL Group Stages and Arsenal will join them if they win the EL later this month, if they lose they will go into the EL next season along with Man Utd and either Wolves or Watford depending on who wins the FA Cup between Man City and Watford.
If City win the FA Cup then Wolves go in through their 7th place finish but if Watford win at Wembley they'll take the final EL place.
Arsenal must beat Chelsea in the EL Final to create England's fifth CL spot and book their place in it.}

1.) 14 May 2019 12:19:03
Pretty sure regardless of whoever wins the CL, the champions league spot would go to the Austrian champions as they are ranked as 11th best league and don’t have an automatic entry. Chelsea winning EL would give France an extra champions league group stage entry, arsenal winning would give them the entry. I think that’s right anyway lol.

2.) 14 May 2019 13:34:09
Cheers for that Ed.

{Ed007's Note - You're welcome buddy 👍



22 Mar 2019 22:01:43

Cosgrove is no better than that one from Hearts that we were linked to. We need Eddie's replacement in to let him settle in just like we did when we brought Eddie in whilst the Moose was still here.
If our ambition is that level I would rather bring through Oko-Flex or Afolabi and see what they can do.

We will have a full squad to choose from on the 29th and we will bury them.
There were plenty times during their cheating years when we played them off the park and they had the flying pig to thank for keeping them in it until they nicked a goal.
No one cares how you play once the game is finished all that matters is that we played crap and that was the best they had and we still won.
That defeat will be a huge blow which could have a mental effect on them which could take them a while to get over.

I think the game next week is going to be really close, I just hope we don't get to over confident.
They seem to think that the RB position is our weak spot and Kent is going to tear us apart.
