Well done Conor Hazard on making his international debut tonight at Costa Rica. What an achievement. Unlike most i think these games have been very valuable to our young players. Lewis Morgan said so himself so that's good enough for me.


1.) 07 Jun 2018 22:49:55
Disappointed Conor chose the occupied six to launch his international Career . The Park of the Windsor's haven't often been a happy hunting ground for Celtic players
I am sure he will remember the occupied six captain and Celtic Captain having regular attacks on his life and that of his family and parents . The loyalists haven't gone away and I sincerely hope Conor doesn't regret playing for the N of Ire.

Don't know how much truth in it but reports today Sunderland want to take Lewis Morgan on a season long loan. Looking forward to seeing him in action next season, at the same time to go there and play under a manager who knows him well might be good for his development. BR will do what is best for the lad if there is any truth in it so be happy either way.


1.) 01 Jun 2018 13:37:54
It's a tricky one Stan but it's certainly plausible. On one hand he could be the cover for Sinclair domestically. On the other, he might be guaranteed more game time down there. Like you say, whichever BR sees fit would do me.


2.) 01 Jun 2018 14:26:07
Unless we sign a winger I’d rather we gave him a chance and if he isn’t getting games loan him out in January. However with Hayes and Christie coming back I think we will loan him out for the full season.


3.) 01 Jun 2018 14:49:19
He should definitely be given pre season to see how he does. I'm hoping he does enough that so that he won't have to go anywhere but can see the pros of game time under a manager he worked well with. Time will tell i guess.


4.) 01 Jun 2018 15:47:53
Work with an st mitten st holder he thinks he could certainly play in the spl for us, but you have to handle the pressure and expectancy so time will tell.


5.) 01 Jun 2018 16:31:43
It all boils down to what BR’s plans are for him. If he isn’t going to feature heavily then it could be a fantastic move but due to the poor recent form of Sinclair he might just find himself given every chance to make his mark.


6.) 01 Jun 2018 19:55:46
I’m really looking forward to seeing Lewis Morgan making his mark at Celtic and if Scott Sinclair is still out of sorts I can see you Lewis putting pressure on him for a starting spot, the Bhoy has all the attributes to be a good player for us .


7.) 01 Jun 2018 21:37:02
I think we are making a mistake pigeon holing the kid as a wide player. I really expect him to kick on but more in the pitch, two footed which always helps.


8.) 01 Jun 2018 22:12:30
If we want to be regarded as a really stupid club, if we were to loan Morgan out for the full season . Are we so rich now that we can afford to buy a youngster at an important part of his development and transfer him out immediately and not let him find out how we train and developed our players . Have we not got top coaches at Lennoxtown . Remember we had two players Mosounda and Paddy on loan last season and both were basically ignored for permanent players of our own.


9.) 01 Jun 2018 22:41:05
A drop in form and an injury and we will struggle for wide players again. There's no point punting him out on loan again unless BR has another winger he wants to bring in. I want us to score more goals next season. He can and will for us if given the chance.


10.) 01 Jun 2018 23:59:08
If Sunderland struggle which they will. Do you think for a second that the resulting fan and board influence will give the lad playing time? There will be a few in that squad that have cost a mountain of cash more than him. If the club is doing badly the out his depth jock card can and will be played. Why put a decent young player through that? Last time I checked we aren't in the market for any of thier players. He could be two bad results down there from rotting on a bench. It's a non story and a complete non starter for me. Keep him here. Or our transfer policy for other young talents has to be consistent. Train well, get a chance. Impress and you can't start then we will find a club to let you start and grow at a good level. January loan minimum.

{Ed007's Note - I can't see Sunderland with their income, budget and new owners struggling. They're a stick on for promotion at the minimum I reckon. Most Sunderland fans are bonkers and will back their team no matter what, 28k in the Championship is better than some of the tinpot clubs in the mega-rich English Pub League with all their tourists and fan-boys.}


11.) 02 Jun 2018 05:38:46
@Stan. I hear you, but is pre-season enough to gage him? Benyu had impressive spells pre-season and a loan was still seen as best for him.

@GJ. I wasn't trying to pidgeon hole him as a wide man. Admittedly I've only seen clips online of him but did notice he's played down the middle/ took up central positions too. I just think there's even less chance of him playing down the middle than there is out wide.


12.) 02 Jun 2018 07:35:33
Chris at the moment it is a rumour which has been brought up by the media so we are discussing it. You seem to think every player that goes out on loan is finished yet look McGregor, Ajer, Christie. Other clubs have good coaches aswel you seem to be of the opinion that our youth players are better being coached and playing againsts bairns in the developmemt league rather than being out playing against a higher level of opposition, as would be the case with Morgan at Sunderland. Nothing to do with us being a stupid club or so rich. I suppose Aitchisons Celtic career will also be over if he goes out and plays weekly for Dundee Utd? Nah let's have him play against the same players he has been playing against week in week out for years, that ain't development no matter how good our coaches are. Morgan will hopefully do enough to be part of our squad next season but as i said, if BR thinks it is in Morgans and the clubs best interest to be elsewhere for 6 months or a year then happy for him to be the decision maker.


13.) 02 Jun 2018 15:15:35
I don't believe Sinclair will get back to season 17/ 18 levels. Looks lost. Back to where he was with Villa. I might get pelters but if he went, based on form since Christmas, I would not be bothered. can't see a return to form. BR was not even giving him a start and gave him minutes in the cup final. Tells us something.


14.) 02 Jun 2018 15:48:06
Morgan has to be given a chance. Why buy him
If we didn’t think that. He is another project though and if Sinclair finds his form I doubt he will play many games, but he should get a run if Hayes got one.


15.) 02 Jun 2018 16:53:20
more likeley to be in jan.


16.) 02 Jun 2018 22:17:39
Am a Paisley bhoy and friendly with a St Mirren fan who goes every week Says the bhoy has the lot, quick footed and a good eye for goal plus a really really good attitude

If we are sending players on loan I prefer they go to Scots clubs it's easier to keep a wee eye on them ourselves plus they can't play against which gives us an advantage over every other team in Scotland before a ball is kicked (Y)


17.) 03 Jun 2018 18:36:21
Stan, we have sent out over 100 players over the last 10 years or so on loan . You claim 3 have been successful, does that mean you think 3% is a good return .
Maybe the three that you mentioned, would have become good players without going on loan, sending them on loan may only have delayed their progress. You must be the only Celtic fan that thinks elbows McCullagh is a better coach than any at Celtic . I think Ajer at Kilmarnock knocked back his Celtic career by at least 6 mths.


18.) 03 Jun 2018 20:11:14
Maybe they would have Chris but let's deal with reality - they did go out on loan! and having all played on a weekly basis at the clubs they were loaned to they have obviously improved. As for elbows where did i say he was a better coach!? Stop talking drivel. Ajers loan deal set him back 6 months? aye that's why Ajer himself said it improved him, as did BR. I think i will go with their judgement on the matter thank you. You do understand other humans are allowed to have an opinion on the club they support 😂 have a werthers and chill .


19.) 03 Jun 2018 20:26:29
Ajer said “Compared to where I was when I arrived last year, I feel I’ve developed a lot for the six months I had with the gaffer and the rest of the staff here. They wanted to help me a lot and I developed so much in the first six months here at Celtic and then going out to Kilmarnock for the last six months, I developed even more with the game-time. I feel in a much better state now than I was 12 months ago. I feel that I am a better defender and I feel that I am ready to play here for Celtic. Obviously there are fantastic players here and everyone wants to play, everyone wants to do really well in training as well So there is tough competition, but when you’ve got so many really good players pushing each other every day, you only develop more as a pl.


20.) 04 Jun 2018 10:00:58
Never OMC Ajer came on leaps and bounds at Kilmarnock and even elbows said he was someone else for his age

That is my point get them to a Scottish club it will be there bread and butter anyway plus they can't play against us 👍.


21.) 04 Jun 2018 11:30:22
Don't think it's the coaching necessarily that improved him, it was playing competitive matches every week in a struggling Kilmarnock side, think he was man of the match in the first game he played for them, or in one of the first, playing in these kind of games will make someone or break them,


22.) 05 Jun 2018 23:17:34
Are we now reduced to quoting what a player, who doesn't want his windows broken or car scorched says after leaving a loan club . Players are trained to praise the club he is leaving .

Remember, Stan, 3 players out of a 100 over the last 10 yrs or so have come back and played for us and you call it a success .
The benefit on loaning players out, is that it iseasier to move players on.


23.) 06 Jun 2018 09:46:49
Who was the last loanee to get his windows smashed in or his car torched OMC.


24.) 07 Jun 2018 22:52:52
Stan, please don't tell me how I think.


 

 

09 May 2018 08:09:09
Ed interesting comments by BR saying talks ongoing between PL and PSG and that PSG are happy with his progress here. Sounds to me like another loan deal on cards or am i just picking it up wrong. Hopefully it's permanent but even if he was to come back on loan for another season and we can get this deal done asap i'd be happy. Did you say recently his contract with PSG ends next year.

{Ed007's Note - Edouard's PSG deal runs to the summer of 2020, Stan.}


1.) 09 May 2018 11:01:10
Ok cheers Ed, Do you know if PSG see him as a work in progress that they would like to keep or are we more than capable of getting a permanent deal done if we want to. I think he would be a sensation next season so would be happy even to see the loan extended.

{Ed007's Note - If PSG were overly keen to keep Edouard I doubt they would have agreed an option to sell him this summer. It's similar to Roberts situation at City - neither of those players are going to challenge players that cost tens of millions in transfer fees and wages, if Neymar goes to Madrid what's the chances of PSG replacing him with Edouard?
I said last week that I thought Lawwell would ask PSG to extend Edouard's loan (and possibly the buying option) for another season.}


2.) 09 May 2018 11:21:38
Makes sense as the price to buy next summer would be less so be a good bit of business. I was never a fan of loans but i can why they are done now, it takes away the risk factor when shelling out on an unknown. Good chance for club to assess before committing to a big outlay on fees and wages. With Edouard would he more than happy to see us buy asap though.

{Ed007's Note - I don't think it would have any real effect on the price except maybe minus another loan fee.}


3.) 09 May 2018 14:37:47
Would we have first refusal on the permanent move? If not I don't see any benefit to another loan deal.


 

 

06 Apr 2018 08:37:54
LG says he wants to stay at club for the rest of his career and is in talks to extend his contract.

Great news.


1.) 07 Apr 2018 13:00:00
It is indeed stan, so impressed at how he had knuckled down with us and is always dangerous, love having a player like him in thr team, and a good lad for the wind up too😂✌️🇮🇪.


 

 

18 Mar 2018 06:59:03
Ed is there genuine interest in Angus Gunn? I just saw a headling on Newsnow. I remember you talking about him before Xmas.

It would be great to have him and Bain as our Keepers next season with Hazard continuing his development on loan.

{Ed007's Note - Gunn is definitely of interest mate but it would probably only be a loan.}


1.) 18 Mar 2018 11:47:55
Thanks Ed, quite excited at the thought of new Keepers coming in. Already like the look of Bain, we would be nuts not to take him on a free.

{Ed007's Note - Getting Bain in on a free to replace DdV would be a shrewd piece of business.}


2.) 18 Mar 2018 12:24:49
I younger brother mentioned Gunn to me months ago. Said he's a good young keeper getting better all the time. Said at time we were meant to be watching him.
To be honest I've never seen him.


3.) 19 Mar 2018 11:05:22
Sunderland and Everton have set the precedent with the £30M Pickford move (Martin Bain played an absolute blinder with that one btw) . City would therefore be quite right to demand the going rate for an English youth International keeper.

{Ed007's Note - Does that mean Monaco and PSG have set the precedent for young French strikers by paying £166 million for Mbappe? How much should we be asking for Dembele then?
Sadly transfer fees don't work like that, Kev.}


4.) 19 Mar 2018 12:41:32
I'm not saying they'll demand that exact amount Ed but these things usually have a domino effect. The Mbappe fee you mentioned wouldn't have been as high without the Neymar fee for instance. My point is that if Sunderland got that much for Pickford then I don't see City valuing Gunn at a price we could afford.

{Ed007's Note - Pickford going to Everton has got nothing to do with Man City or Angus Gunn the same as the Mbappe fee had nothing to do with Neymar apart from PSG couldn't pay for Mbappe without seriously breaching FFP Regs. There was no actual transfer fee as such paid for Neymar, the player and his legal team bought out his contract at Barca by paying the full release clause and he technically signed for PSG as a free agent.
Going by your logic Liverpool will be asking for the same kind of money as Pickford for Danny Ward.}


5.) 19 Mar 2018 14:12:50
I'd say Gunn is definitely hotter property atm but I take your point Ed. I still don't think City would be willing to let him go for anything within our budget when there are PL teams rumoured to be in for him.

{Ed007's Note - They sold us Ntcham - who had played circa 50 games in Serie A and had other options - for £4.5 million. Gunn's played 43 games for a team sitting in 15th place in the English second division and conceded 50 goals and managed 15 clean sheets. That's his career to date and you think Man City will ask for crazy money for him, I'm actually surprised that any EPL team would want him as their No.1 just now, it would be a massive risk to take.
Btw, I don't think anyone will buy him this summer, if anything I think it'll be a loan and then after that Gunn only has a year on his City contract. I think it would help our chances of getting him if his dad can talk him into choosing to play for Scotland.}


6.) 19 Mar 2018 16:53:43
I didn’t consider his contract to be fair but even using £4.5M as an example, it’s been 10 years since the last time we paid Ntcham money. If the board are willing to spend that kind of figure more regularly then great but I have my doubts about that. I actually haven’t seen Gunn play so don’t know if he would ideal but I’d like to see a new first pick brought in.

{Ed007's Note - I don't see why the board wouldn't be willing to pay £4+ million regularly on players if it's the player the manager wants and I wouldn't be at all surprised to see us break our transfer record this summer.
We definitely need to address the GK situation this summer, Bain will be signed on a free which is a bargain but for me he should be our No.2 to hopefully a new No.1. Would you keep Bain in goal even when Gordon is fit again? I would.
I watched Stevie Woods interview on CelticTV at half-time yesterday and I'm sure he said that he had recommended Bain to Rodgers when they were discussing new 'keepers and then he kind of added at the end once Craig Gordon had got injured... it was the way he said it - or I've picked it up wrong - that he had let slip they've been discussing 'keepers for a while.}


7.) 20 Mar 2018 18:12:11
Its not the transfer fee that matters, it's whether we can be as sure as dammit that the player will turn out good value for money . We probably have an upper limit of around £10 m because we have to remember we have to budget for an appropriate annual salary plus bonuses We also have to judge that the new player will fit into our squad . A team with one or two stars much better than the rest can find it difficult geld together.

Let's forget this "everyone deserves a second chance myth". Some people don't. Boyata turned his back on the club, his manager, team mates, and us the fans when he took the huff, lied and refused to play.

He does not deserve to be anywhere near Glasgow nevermind poluting the atmosphere around our youngsters. What did they do to deserve his company. He should be training on his own at Glasgow Green. I praised him on here, i respected him when he was out running the streets at 4am to work his way into the team. That was committment to our cause.

It should never have come to this though what were we thinking of turning down a £9m bid. Not even signing a new contract fixes anything the damage is done. Accept any deal possible to get him on the first plane out of Glasgow. We said before the AEK return leg there was no time to replace him at this stage, sorry but with 3 weeks left of the window there was plenty time! If our scounting system does not have a list of over 10 CBs of similar quality then they should not be at Celtic Park either!

Enough of this continous nonsense Celtic sort it out and start acting like a Club that knows what it is doing.


1.) 19 Aug 2018 08:50:38
Excellent post Stan. Completely agree.


2.) 19 Aug 2018 10:27:08
Stan, great post. maybe I am reading too much into the Boyata saga. We must have known he would not sign a new contract as soon as we spoke to him when he came back. BR must have been the one to say keep him. If PL did get offered £9mill he would have, quite rightly, wanted to do the deal. then Boyata won't play. BR is now under pressure from PL and BR throws Boyota under the bus by telling us he was fit to play all the time. Why do that? He now is panicking as he eventually realises that Hendry and Jose can't hack it. Now BR is saying all is well. Boyata may play which means he will definitely play. Whether we think he should play or not, BR is the architect of this problem. I am getting a wee bit worried about BR and some of the calls he is making now. No one knows what goes on behind the scenes but by and large we have kept a double treble side together. Spart from Armstrong and Paddy we are the same team so why is it all going wrong. Its down to BR. Boyata saga brought everything to a head and this lies squarely at the door of BR. We are a decent side with decent players but we look drained, just like BR.


3.) 19 Aug 2018 12:16:06
I'm surprised BR thinks playing someone who is going to get booed on every touch will help a defence that is already under scrutiny.


4.) 19 Aug 2018 12:20:50
Johnny stop posting mince BR asked for players didn't get them fact boyata is prob our best cb fact he went AWOL last week after his agent influenced him and as far as BR looking drained what absolute rubbish saw his presser and he spoke and sounded fine . Talk about doom and gloom.


5.) 19 Aug 2018 15:57:04
I will post what i see. If you think everything is all right at Celtic Park then you are a fool.


6.) 19 Aug 2018 19:51:19
Johnny Mac, you are right none of us knows what goes on behind close doors . Things seem to be a bit complicated just now and I imagine the best man to get the best outcome for us is Brendan . m
Let's hope he does, and even if it is a bad outcome, there is no point on us all jumping on the band wagon giving our truppence worth, as what done will be done and we won't be able to change it
We don't have to be a fool to have different views from you or anyone else.


7.) 20 Aug 2018 00:38:38
I said to my mates last week that we should wait and see how the Boyata saga pans out. The SMSM are doing everything they can to unsettle us just now so we should be vary wary of what they are saying. I have to say there are one or two on here whose motives are questionable as well. I think Brendan’s in a better position than any of us to decide whether or not Boyata should be part of the team. As for booing someone in a Celtic shirt, you’d better not be sitting next to me when you do it.

{Ed007's Note - I don't particularly want to see Boyata back plsying but I'm definitely not comfortable with booing anyone wearing the Hoops as long as they're giving me 100% on the pitch - leave the politcs of the situation and the gossip etc to the forums like this. He's not the first player to work his ticket and he certainly won't be the last.}


 

 

15 Aug 2018 08:19:29
Time to accept our place in European football at the moment. We are Europa League level at best. That is not going to change under the current Board. They have a strategy/ model that is based on finding young talent and selling them to make cash. Celtic is being run as a business not a football club. Having cash in the bank is more important to them than ambition on the park. We may have won back to back trebles but we should be so far ahead of the rest that we are uncatchable, sadly that is not the case and i have taken the green tinted specs off to admit to that. BR has again spoke out about his frustrations at not spending prior to these qualifiers and quite rightly so he has been let down by a Board who do this every season gamble in the hope we make it. Well last night it has come back to bite them in the erse and it's going to cost us a fortune, all it will do is keep us at the same level as the rest rather than widening the gap. As Sutton said they were more interested in Disco lights for a competition they would even compete in. Is this strategy/ model going to take us forward? It won't at European level so let's end this big club talk. I have bit my tongue this last 2 years regarding the people running our club as BR was an appointment they got right, again sadly though they have let the man down. I for one would not care if PL and DD left. They would be replaced with ease, and by people who's ambitions were the same as the people who actually put cash into the Club not take from it. They have fooled us all into believing their "but look what happened to Rangers" talk. Yes look at them, spending more than us on no CL cash, no player sales cash, no kit cash. We spent cash to compete under O'Neill and we thrived! . I now hope that in my lifetime we have a Celtic run by different people, ambitious men who want Celtic back where they belong competing and holding their own at fortress Celtic Park in the CL. Nothing this lot do from now until the end of August will change anything the damage is done. One gamble too many by this lot. Players and Managers are sacked or sold for failure.


1.) 15 Aug 2018 09:43:03
Stan - I said last week we where out and the green tinted brigade said no, teams ok, players will sign with 3 weeks left in window

Big change in opinions now from a lot, domestic success isn’t exciting anymore as there are no challenges even with the state of this current defence we still clean up

European progress is where excitement comes from and we’ve blown it, Europa will be rubbish, lot of big clubs play weakened teams until the very late stages and for transfers now, any new signings if there is any will be projects or loans at best

Wouldn’t be surprised if BR left at end of the season and I don’t blame him.


2.) 15 Aug 2018 09:55:39
Kev as you know i went and enjoyed my summer and thought by the time i came back on here to give judgement things would be different. Nothing, not one signing. I stand corrected. Will the board make up the shortfall of no CL cash? Nah that will be left to the fans who bought season tickets and merchandise, players being sold and the dafabet cash. We need new investement and a new direction.


3.) 15 Aug 2018 10:01:16
Still can't understand the boards philosophy they know if they spend even say 15.mill that there's 40 mill eating on them can't get my head round it.


4.) 15 Aug 2018 10:03:32
Playing in a one horse league like ours means we will never compete in Europe! The hysteria on here suggests we were expecting to win the Champions League! Newsflash we won't even win the Europa League. European ties will always be bonus games👍.


5.) 15 Aug 2018 10:07:42
Mally it's their pathetic "but look what happened to Rangers" attitude.


6.) 15 Aug 2018 10:13:32
What utter shoite malky! There’s not one person suggesting we would the CL or even get near winning the EL for that matter! What a pointless post that is honestly! Playing in a one horse league had bugger all to do with going out to a poor AEK team pal, bringing in decent defenders is why we’re out! If we had a solid defence over those 2 games we would have qualified with little problems against that mob, simple as that!


7.) 15 Aug 2018 10:15:28
Malky did you see the clubs Ed posted last night who we could face in the Europa. We will struggle to win a game never mind win it. Plenty clubs competing who play in one horse leagues but they either get huge amounts of tv cash or their owners invest heavily on new players. We have neither.


8.) 15 Aug 2018 10:16:17
Good post Stan, couldn’t have put it better myself bud 👍🏼.


9.) 15 Aug 2018 10:22:01
So everything is ok? Thecway we become a CL team us to invest. That’s the omission. No balls, no ambition and we are now a reflection of that utter cowardice. We know where we are. We also know that to move up we need to invest in more than feckin disco lights.

When you are led by dithering rubbishebags our team reflects that. No one should have been surprised, apart from the happy clappers telling us it would be ok. We will get the players, trust Lawell to get the best deals.

How is that working out? It’s nit negative to point out a pathetic strategy of hope. A few hail mary’s Or saying keep the faith is bullrubbish. We are were we are because we have men devoid of ambition. That’s always been our problem and until these Sheep are driven out we will always be the same.

We aren’t even guaranteed to have players in for the EL playoff. How anybody can defend that board for that is beyond me. That’s taking forelock tugging to levels to new depths. It doesn’t make you a better fan because you see no wrong. The opposite is true.


10.) 15 Aug 2018 12:39:26
The quality we need to compete at the top end of European football simply won't come to a one horse league unless we can offer Champions League football which we can't guarentee as we need to play 4 qualifiers! why is that so difficult to grasp? If you want to blame anyone blame BR for his awful record in the transfer market. It wasn't Lawell that wanted De Vries, Gamboa, Hendry, Ajer ( a mid to play at CB) , Hayes, Commper, Kouassi, Benyu etc Rodgers has had 5 windows to fix that defence but sells Sviatchenko as he favoured Boyata. Some are pointing the finger at the wrong person! I'm glad Peter Lawell is running the club and not most on here. Didn't BR have Odebayo on trial during pre season but decided against signing him? Remind me how Lustig got on last night? Blame lies squarely at the managers feet👍.

My posts have more point to them than most of the hystetical ramblings on here! The board have backed the manager to suggest otherwise when we smashed our transfer record on Edouard for £9m is nonsense especially when the board signed 3 defenders at BR's request - Gamboa, Hendry, Commper!


12.) 15 Aug 2018 21:15:33
I've said before.
If a player of quality does not want to come then we have no control over that.
If the club was to announce all the failed attempts to sign players, we would look a right bunch of persons and be torn apart by media and sevco lot.
Hearts beat us so I guess they must have better players, let's go buy half their team. Now, we all know that was a stupid statement but you get my drift.

I want quality and not just a signing who I might be bitching about as a waste of money that could have been used on someone else.
I don't believe the Board are sitting on their cash pile refusing to spend it. (The more we spend on investment including players, the less we give the taxman)

How does everyone feel about Mouassa starting? I think it's worth the risk. We need to start our best 11 and if he is fit and been training well he must start.


1.) 14 Aug 2018 11:25:38
If he is fit he must start.


2.) 14 Aug 2018 11:32:15
Rodgers said he won’t start mate, says he will come on at some point.


3.) 14 Aug 2018 11:49:13
I did read that Andy but maybe that's just BR trying to fool AEK. I hope that's the case. Having him in will give the whole team a much needed lift lads.


4.) 14 Aug 2018 13:47:25
Winning tonight would be wonderful, but not if starting put his injury in jeopardy, maybe the last 30 mins will carry us over line.


5.) 14 Aug 2018 14:21:38
Not a bad sub to come either Chris.

Away win tomorrow night, Moussa new deal Wednesday. One can dream!


1.) 13 Aug 2018 22:56:57
Moussa won’t start. Edouard said to be doubtful and Ntcham linked with Porto. Boyata refuses to play. The MSM are doing all in their power to undermine us. We should use that as motivation to part their balls.


2.) 14 Aug 2018 07:54:23
Unfortunately that's just the way it is MP and won't ever change. Everytime we have a have a game this month a player will be linked away. Just read the Ntcham story on Newsnow, saying his agents have told Porto he will be sold if we lose tonight. Some of it you just have to laugh at.

I'd have prefered Mulgrew at CB this last year rather than Jozo and Boyata. Could have covered at LB for KT and in Midfield if needed. Always put a decent ball into the box, always attacked the ball well and also hit a mean freekick. Should never have been allowed to leave.


1.) 13 Aug 2018 14:37:18
Was also part of, if not the leader of, the anti RD cabal.


2.) 13 Aug 2018 14:37:37
Should never have been allowed to sign!
As slow as death. Great left foot but has almost no technical ability when the balls moving. He’d be brilliant at that walking football.


3.) 13 Aug 2018 15:05:23
A stand out for Blackburn every game by having no ability 😂 and there's me thinking the leader was someone from this page.


4.) 13 Aug 2018 15:18:15
A stand out in league one doesn't make him good enough to play for us.


5.) 13 Aug 2018 15:48:14
Did you ever watch him when he played for Celtic? How many times have we seen players do well in England but fail up here?

We have to scout players based on their performances for other teams. In Mulgrew’s case we don’t have to, we saw first hand how poor he is.

It’s frightening that you identify him as a way to improve our defence.


6.) 13 Aug 2018 15:51:54
I lost count of the amount of times he tried his wonder balls across the pitch only to put it straight out. He wasn’t good enough for us two years ago.


7.) 13 Aug 2018 16:07:41
Read my post properly. At no point did i say go sign CM. My post said i would rather him than either JS or DB this last year.

We can sign players for being a stand out in the Scottish championship but not league 1, although now playing in the Championship. Ah that made me laugh thank you.


8.) 13 Aug 2018 16:07:57
How does it not? We have signed players from poor teams in the past Scunthorpe, Notts Forest, Dundee etc.
Surely it’s based on players ability and not what they play against each week. If that’s the case we may as well shut the doors cause we play against poor teams so that means all our players are rubbishe.

VVD strutted the SPL and he’s doing the same down south because he had the ability.
Wanyama, Forster, Ledley all good players who have went from a poor league in most people’s eye to doing good elesewhere.

We sign people for their ability not the league they play in. If Mulgrew can hold his own, score goals and be an important players against average opposition he could do it back in Scotland.

Would I want big Charlie back, it’s lazy scouting and not progressive so no, but could he do a job. Yes.


9.) 13 Aug 2018 16:23:26
Well said Jsean. Atleast you are able to read properly.


10.) 13 Aug 2018 16:30:48
I wish we had taken a chance on Charlie Austin when he was playing in the lower Leagues. Would have come up here and got 30+ a season. These players are learning their trade against adults not being pampered.

He got BR and O'Neill yet the rest, Lenny, Mowbray, Strachan, Deila he's no taking any credit for? Did he leave that decision making to the Board? Aye right. More flaws than Braveheart.

In your opinion i am Kev, not so much to others. So DD being the largest shareholder decides who our Manager is? The rest of the Board have no day? nonsense, what gives him that right? Anywho i couldn't care less about DD i won't die remembering anything he has done for Celtic.

DD should pack his own bags BR has done more for Celtic in 2 years than that man ever will.

If the interest is genuine would not be shocked to see us offer them Allan and Christie. We won't be going anywhere near Aberdeens valuation, not even half of it.

Good point that Markom, each player definitely has to wear different boots to suit each surface. On 2G i wear Puma moudies which have 13 very small studs on each boot. I've seen some people use the traditional old boots with 6 longer screw in studs. personic really. As i said sometimes injuries are down to the person not the surface.

We can't go into any season thinking it's going to be easy. It's that mindset at Board level that has seen us stall rather than strengthen. I hope every player we have has the attitude that they need to go onto that park and give it their all to get a result, no matter who the opposition is. Peformances against Hearts, Partick etc etc simply not good enough so i hope to god our players don't think it's going to be easy.

Used by thousands of people on a weekly basis in scotland alone. Let the people who enjoy them use them. The people who don't like them stay at home don't use them. Problem solved. Serial moaners in this country!
