Its amazing to think we have bought one centre half this window and will have to buy at least one more . In my opinion over the last couple of years we seemed to buy a number of what appeared at the time to be quite good centre halves, Eric, Boyota, Jozo and young Ajer but really apart from Ajer, who we are still not sure about and maybe Boyata who we are less sure about, they haven't progressed. Buying players can be such a gamble.

Erik is the best centre half we half imo. but unfortunately he had to play beside efe in the early BR days. an injury has stopped him changing opinion.

If u think that lump of wood is our best cb, then it shows how much we are lacking quality in the cb postion.

3.) 05 Jan 2018 16:37:12
I cannot agree that Erik is out best CH, bhoy1der. I don't even think he's our third best. Flustered and nervy far too easily, gets pulled about and bullied too much for my liking and struggles with pacy forwards. Nice big guy, but I think Ajer is already far better than Erik. HH🙂.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 01:29:47
have to agree. met and chatted with him several times and he is a decent guy. For BRs system he is too wee, too slow, his bottle and desire went a long time ago. Best thing for him is to move on now and start again after us blocking so many of his transfers in the past. Best of luck to him and I'm sure he will do a turn for another team somewhere.

Just as I made a decision twenty years and more ago to read no more sport pages of Scottish newspapers and to avoid Scottish media outlets because of their bias anti Celtic reporting . I have now, regretfully have had to do the same with your posts.
I won't be reading any of your posts as I read posts on forums like this to feel good about my club, I read them for enjoyment, unfortunately the constant negatively of your posts were having a continuous depressing effect on me . I use Celtic to keep me happy in my older years.

Glad to hear it. I will be difficult to get by without your medical and family rearing advice, but I'll cope. Making a decision to stop reading stuff shows me at least a clear sign of a victim syndrome. Maybe you should go get it checked out.

If not felt with you live in a wee bubble of your own creation, that filters out reality and has the debilitating side effect of a compulsion to clap furiously at all times.

I do though hope you continue to be happy.

MP I have slagged off Chris views on here many times (tongue in cheek ofcourse) but he has a valid point here, I have yet to read a POSITIVE post from you about Celtic doesn't that strike u as strange!

4.) 17 Jan 2018 14:37:07
There's never a day when I agree with all the posts on here OMC but that's the way it should be as it generates debate and comment.
Like me, you are a long time contributor Chris and probably also like me you are in your 60's? and see things differently from younger posters and I think you should stick around and share your opinions.
Us auld yins have to keep active somehow.

Exactly OAB - We remember the bad, the good, the cheated and the good years for this great club.

With Celtic away enjoying mid winter sunshine and with the grim reaper making his way to Govan, I had time last weekend to watch Arsenal v Nottingham Forrest, I wasing expecting much but I was v pleasantly surprised by Forest who took the game Arsenal quickly with neat passing on and off the ball. Arsenal with a mixture of regulars, youths and players who obviously feel they are too good for the English game really struggled . I thought of how well the
"Loaf - man " had worked wit me with youngsters and the Nottingham Forest been the idiot he is sacked him . Of course the former England manager progedy was also sacked by Rangers Board that knows nothing about football, and thankfully they replaced Warburton by the Mexican who also knew nothing about football.

At the end of the day, I thought Thank God Celtic have a stable Board who have combined abilities and use them as well as they can to bring the club forward . Stability and no knee jerk reactions help a club to go forward.

I see the £50m transfer and a season and a half coaching by some of the best coaches in UK having made Stones any more reliable than the centre halves who suffer dog's abuse from our fans .

Loans are not always good for football.
Loans to give a youngster play time in front of spectators can be beneficial.
Loans can also be beneficial to put youngsters on the market hoping for a buyer . The vast majority of our loans fall into this category .
Loans to put managers mistakes out of sight also happens . Typical example is Scott Allan, u can be sure BR doesn't want a previous manager's mistake every day on his training pitch.

They are also used to reduce the wage bill.

2.) 06 Jan 2018 10:19:21
Scott Allan wasn't a previous managers mistake. Ronny never wanted him.

3.) 07 Jan 2018 00:35:47
Kev83 . How do you know that? Surely if Ronny was a manager at all he would have not let him in the gate . Instead he welcomed him with open arms, brought him on in Europe, only for S A to run out for a short corner and when the ball was played to him he turned his back and let the opposition run down and score .
If Ronny really didn't want him he would have left him in the stands that night.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 11:17:18
So you honestly think that RD wanted Kazim Richards? It was common knowledge that Parks was the ones signing the players.

5.) 07 Jan 2018 17:46:58
Common knowledge is more likely to be wrong than right .
I have nothing against R D but I have to say he had Charleton Cole training for weeks on end& my God we have made some rare buys but C C had to be one of the worse& I don't think R D can hide behind commmonbknowl doe.



03 Jan 2018 23:33:44
Have we had a record today, despite the transfer season up and running there isn't one post on here today raising the possibility of Dembele leaving .
It's most unusual for our negative fans to not talk up the possibility of our best asset leaving.

Old man Chris

1.) 04 Jan 2018 00:31:10
That's cause he's going nowhere he's staying until summer he will have a cracking second half if the season then go.

2.) 04 Jan 2018 09:05:39
Canny be any worse than the first half.

3.) 04 Jan 2018 10:30:17
If we get offered anywhere near 20 million then take it! Yes the big mans been injured and been in and out the team but for me his hearts not in it! And more of the same in the 2nd half of the season doesn’t do him and more importantly us any favours!

4.) 04 Jan 2018 14:13:11

It’s not us trying to sell him, it is the hacks.

5.) 04 Jan 2018 15:31:30
That's a very negative post about being negative lol.

6.) 04 Jan 2018 15:34:43
Pissed me right off his reaction to getting subbed after doing nothing for an hour, if he goes good luck to the bhoy, think he might be off this window tbh, disagree with best asset chris, think that's KT for me. an asset that goes on holiday in his work clothes and jumps into a hoops bar for a beer, would be more gutted if KT left than dembelle tbh.

7.) 05 Jan 2018 23:38:04
A anyone who jumps into a bar for an alcoholic drink is in the middle of the season is not looking after his body properly .
I am sure Boywonder must have actually seen him drink, as it is no time since he said he didn't drink alcohol, but might start drinking when he finished playing .

{Ed007's Note - I was out earlier (my wee niece that I've spoke about for years turned 17 today!) but Dembele went straight down the tunnel to get treatment from the sports science folk which probably included some kind of muscle rubbing - did people expect him to cartwheel off the pitch looking happy?}

How would Union Jack have a mate that lives in Italy .
Are you sure U J that your mate didn't die and it is someone else who lives in his address.

Kevbhoy, I don't think Jozo is much use to us . He is as unreliable if not more so than any other centre half we have on the pitch . He is also unreliable off the pitch as it seems he claims injury at the drop of a hat.

I admire Peter and now Brendan for not been sucked into the silly games played by agents and fan pressure and usually control our purchasers . It can often be difficult enough to get a reasonably good player to continue and improve his form when joining a new club .
I am still disappointed that fan power pushed Johannson away from Celtic

We signed Eboue who is a very good player, but we cannot get his form and ability on the pitch . That's why I think in an ideal world we would bring our own through from academie.

Wiltshire Celt, thank God Brendan and Peter have a better grasp of the economies of managing the Financial business of Celtic .
You probably are not aware that one Scottish team broke the 10m level when Rangers1872 spent £12m on Floe . You might remember that club has since died and I am sure you would be one of the first to pick over the bones to see who was to blame if the same thing happened Celtic .
One thing is certain the fans that bleated on and on about us not buying this player and that player would keep very well.

I know where you got stats for goals scored by Cummings . It appears your stats have originated from Rangers and accuracy yet to confirm.

Bhoys , I don't think we should worry about our defence . As B R says we defend as a team . . Our problem was over the last 6 weeks domestically we didn't . Our midfield were wandering too far up field and we were caught on the counter attack .
We had too many games to have time to work during training to correct this . Last week and this week at training I have no doubt B R would have got players back to basics and taking up right positions.

I have it on good authority that neither Mr Desmond or Mr Lawwell are masons.

Stepbhoy, I don't know about their Masonic Presidents but I do know that the only Catholic President was shot .

I know what it is to be the black sheep.
I am getting on near 70 and I think some of my birth family still want to keep me locked out .
If it wasn't for my wife and daughters, I don't know where I would be .
