Hi Ed : hope you are well . Don't know if you have heard, but apparently the team have trained at CP this week and not at lennoxtown . Also that playing staff only in the grounds all other staff not allowed to see training? HH.

1.) 08 Sep 2016 17:33:33
They were on the sports news training at Lennoxtown yesterday.

2.) 08 Sep 2016 18:18:39
I saw that too. But, That was cardboard cut outs on wheels.

Classic diversionary ploy.

3.) 08 Sep 2016 18:42:20
Haha belter Magicpole. They were training today at Lennoxtown too again it was on the sports news too, Rodgers had his press conference there today also.

4.) 09 Sep 2016 01:35:04
Magic pole, macaulay culkin must have borrowed GMS strip and set it up on the fly.



28 Jun 2016 17:41:56
Well done everyone at Celtic what a great deal. 4 year deal for Dembele .

Hail Hail.

1.) 28 Jun 2016 17:45:11
Let's hope there's more like this to come and we can get back in Europe and hammer these tossers rangers in the league.

{Ed007's Note - Has anyone else noticed when his birthday is? :=D

2.) 28 Jun 2016 17:53:42
Ed: always the small details with you mate: Dob 12 july.

For Moussa:
Laissez les bons temps rouler

Let the good times roll.

hail Hail.

{Ed007's Note - I've just realised that Clint Hill is old enough to be Dembele's dad!}

3.) 28 Jun 2016 18:32:05
Depending what area of the toon you hail from, he could be several of our first teams da's.



25 May 2016 17:00:23
Ed : Our new assistant manager is Chris Davies.
Thoughts anyone?

1.) 25 May 2016 22:52:29
My only thoughts are that he has worked with Brendan Rodgers with two of his previous clubs . That's good enough for me, if we don't trust B R in his appointments of people he has worked with, how can we have any faith in him signing players who presumably haven't played for him .
I trust him entirely.

2.) 26 May 2016 00:24:36
I'm with OldBhoy. He looks to have made quite a quick rise in coaching. Rodgers could have went for experience. But Davies is obviously somebody he trusts, somebody who knows his methods and drills and should make the transition easier. And that's good enough for me.

3.) 26 May 2016 02:03:30
Most of us want Rodgers to have final say on recruitment so whatever he chooses will do me fine. Let him live or die by his own sword. In Rodgers we trust hail hail!

{Ed007's Note - I was reading this earlier:


4.) 26 May 2016 02:26:02
It's late n that's a long article but had a quick look, al read the rest tomorrow. Sounds good ed, it's what everyone was wanting Rd to do, change the system to accommodate the players we have and to counter the opposition. Sounds like he'll do a valuable job

{Ed007's Note - I've not finished it either but he certainly talks the talk from what I have read.}

5.) 26 May 2016 05:19:31
Good article that. I wonder who was doing this previously if at all; I know RD brought over a Head of Performance but that was probably more focused on us than the opposition. CD has come in as assistant manager though hasn't he? With BR being unfamiliar with Scottish football CD might continue this role too.

{Ed001's Note - opposition analysis is the area Rodgers was weakest. Craig Bellamy tells a very good story about Liverpool facing Basel in the Europa League, while he was with the club working on coaching badges. Rodgers and his staff could not figure out how Basel were playing, let alone how to beat them, after doing their analysis and then playing them once, leading to us being embarrassed by them twice in the Europa League. They needed to analyse the games afterwards to figure out what the Swiss side were doing! I can't understand how it took them so long, they could have called me and I could have told them before kick off in the first match. How a bunch of highly paid professionals could not figure it out is beyond me.}

6.) 26 May 2016 05:57:18
Ach Ed you keep coming up with nuggets like this! Lol. That is a bad one.

{Ed001's Note - sorry mate, but it is with good reason he fails to convince me. He is very good at talking the talk, but he is so focused on telling everyone how great he is that he seems to forget about actually doing it.}

7.) 26 May 2016 09:51:42
Seem to remember LFC playing a 3-5-2 with Can and Stirling as LWB's? So ITS not a given he will play the formation according to the players and not the other way around. RD did visit Rodgers in his study trips, so the football may not be that different from RD's. Going to be a hell of a ride though. I hope he gets it right even it makes RD look like a failure.

8.) 26 May 2016 13:13:11
Brendan Rodgers will no doubt want want to be a success at Celtic . He has had plenty of time to self analysis what went well at Liverpool and what needed to improve. I would have little doubt that a Professional like Rodgers has also sought professional advice on how to illuminate his weaknesses . There are not too many managers around who don't have weaknesses but most of them become adept at minimising them.



09 May 2016 13:35:15
JC to walk away with RD at the end of the season, that makes my day .

1.) 09 May 2016 16:15:34
Could it be we have spoke to a potential manager and he has said he wants full control of everything

I'm sure the board would of tried forcing JC on to the next man so maybe getting somewhere at last.

2.) 09 May 2016 16:32:02
I really hope your right buddy. I heard Brendan Rodgers will be announced on Monday.

3.) 09 May 2016 17:06:32
I read an article analysing JC words that a "New manager will come in and bring in his own staff" take that as you may but here's hoping. Also mentioned McNallys resignation as Chief Executive of Norwich hopefully PL might be moved on to the board too.

4.) 09 May 2016 17:14:59
Is that a genn dit for Monday?

5.) 09 May 2016 23:50:29
Can't see Brendon Rodgers at Celtic? Pedro is highest paid employee so Rodgers would be working for under £1mill a year? Won't happen!

6.) 10 May 2016 09:31:14
With big changes around the club this summer I'm not sure if Peter lawell will remain

Maybe the way the two years under ronny has went it's caused some people in the boardroom to waken up and call for a change of direction

One things for certain after the new manager is in, ed you'll be very busy. Players coming from here and there I'm sure (good luck)

7.) 10 May 2016 11:19:22
That's what I was told island just a rumour though so who knows except for the powers that be.

8.) 10 May 2016 12:19:26
Let's hope there is an announcement soon whoever the 'chosen one' may be.



27 May 2015 18:45:51
Note to ED:
What sort of power does Uefa have to move against FiFa. I understand that Fifa are the governing body nut they must have to answer to some one.
Can Uefa ask their members to boycott the world cup.??

{Ed002's Note - UEFA is not liked any more than FIFA by the clubs so ganging up is not going to be an issue. There is fallout to come - I am not sure what it will be right now. Ed007 will keep you posted.}

1.) 27 May 2015 23:15:46
i think the g14 are looking at ways to get more cash as that latest Epl deal has turned teams like Stoke Swansea into bigger clubs than Ajax benfica psv etc clubs with big followings
I for one won't be renewing my sky deal next year to see players like Danny wellbeck james Milner Jordan Henderson take home 70k+ a week

2.) 28 May 2015 18:38:32
Platini has said that UEFA will discuss pulling out of FIFA and future world cups. If they did this it would force change as all the sponsors would pull out as well and as they say, money talks.


3.) 29 May 2015 00:50:37
Marco10 your right mate. At the start of the season Hull City were listed as a richer club than Celtic. We have got to be at least 20x a bigger club and this just illustrates how dangerous sky tv is

4.) 29 May 2015 01:19:49
Platini won't get all the UEFA teams to pull out of the World Cup. If he is lucky he will get the Western European Countries and some others
Russia and many of the eastern bloc countries will be bought , by Putin or bullied and threatened, but many of them won't go with Europe .
I think America is trying to block Russia from holding the World Cup.
They boycotted the Moscow O. Games , and are interested in playing wee games again . I think it's the 2022 games that have to be moved . They are totally disgraceful.
I think Scotland and the ROI should boycott this competition and could stage our own World Cup. Pity the SFA is so corrupt or we could have started the honest no cheating Finals .

5.) 29 May 2015 14:54:49
Platini seems to be opposed to boycott, withdrawal from FIFA / World Cup.

Bottom line is that there's too much money involved for anyone to stage an effective protest or demand change. Only when the sponsors decide to act rather than talk will there be any inertia to get rid of Blatter - and as it is, there's always another company eager to step up to the position. What other product gives you access to the whole world?

The US Attorney General is acting in a very courageous way for my money and has made her reputation on the impossible cases. I hope she continues. Geopolitically, Putin is not credible on the issue, and his regime is noriously almost as nepotistic as FIFA.

6.) 30 May 2015 00:03:59
Cavalcanti , don't place too much trust with the American Atorney General , she investigated a group of American bankers and had theenough evidence to put several into jail for a very long time but then she allowed plea bargaining and no time was served . We know Putin is objectionable but America and Russia both have their own agendas , and I wouldn't think either were whiter than white .

7.) 31 May 2015 07:27:37
There is a lot going on behind the scenes between Russia and the US that most people are oblivious to. Basically Russia and the other BRICS countries are challenging the US dominance in the financial markets. Russia has recently done some big oil deals and did not sell the oil in dollars, which means the US did not get its customary cut. BRICS have also set up their own central bank to challenge the IMFs monopoly on lending. In response US have destabilized Ukraine by supporting groups opposed to the previous regime. They have placed sanctions on Russia. I also suspect the fall in oil prices has been orchestrated to impact on Russia as they need it to sell for at least 100 dollars a barrell to keep their economy afloat. I also wouldn't be surprised if this FIFA investigation is in someway linked as well.

8.) 02 Jun 2015 01:12:35
Rabmac I think you have hit the nail on the head . America v Russia economic war and throw in Quatar getting the World Cup America wanted and Russia , England's .

The other thing was 5 years ago Platini thought he was a shoe-in for Blatter's job this year . So politics , economics , world domination and Football last . Not much room for ethics in that mixture .

{Ed007's Note - If anyone actually believes that this is to do with tackling corruption or human right issues they're kidding themselves on. This is about England and the USA flexing their politcal muscle, the only difference is they can't invade FIFA and murder innocent people like they do elsewhere.
Remember that the EPL is the 'best league in the world', why shouldn't they have more power, it's not like England don't like putting themselves centre of the universe.
It's not about tackling the corruption, it's about controlling it. If England had been granted the 2018 WC we wouldn't be reading about this stuff, England would be backing Blatter.
Let's not forget how keen the USA & England are to do the bidding of Zionist Israel who were under pressure last week.
I wonder how many CFC fans who are suddenly concerned with human rights etc were at Dungavel at the weekend, maybe the BBC didn't 'promote' the protest?
I was taught that charity begins at home, these days it seems to begin on social media about how outraged people are with whatever the flavour of the month cause is.
As for Platini, his comments about Heysel show how much of a lousy $hit-heel he is.}

Just sitting watching Jinky on BBC Alba, the hairs on my neck are standing.
Tears in my eyes and a lump in my thoat.

God bless you wee man for the years of happiness you brought to the Celtic family.

1st name on god` team sheet
Once a Celt always a Celt


1.) 08 Jan 2017 13:00:35
Cheers for that CPRS1-just watched it-and that's the tears and snotters running fae me now too and lump in my throat now as well! Different times-different world-it takes more than one or two good seasons from a VVD or Wanyama to become a Celtic FC legend and earn the title 'Grestest Ever Celt'. Larson looked genuinely delighted when Jinky won it. The days when Man Utd came calling and a wee laddie says 'naw-I only want to play for Celtic' and after leaving his heart was never in it anywhere else. Rest in Peace James Connelly Johnstone 🍀

03 Jan 2017 19:00:43
ok Bhoys and Ghirls i will start the thought process, when we get rid of Ciftci who gets the No7 jersey?

Give it to Sinky ( I would )

thoughts please.

1.) 03 Jan 2017 19:13:57
Super Lee fur me.

2.) 03 Jan 2017 19:14:01
Good shout cprs. Would be delighted to get rid of ciftci.

3.) 03 Jan 2017 19:32:15
@JOHNNYBOYN1: LG asked for the No9 shirt from the Kit man so he won't want the No7 jersey.
As I said give it to Sinky, he is the kind of player we expect to see in that jersey.

4.) 03 Jan 2017 19:35:57
Should never have bought him in the first place, never good enough for us! And to hand him the number 7 shirt was staggering! Couldn't disagree with scotty Sinclair getting it, guys been class since he came in!

5.) 03 Jan 2017 21:23:38
Retire it until the start of next season, then award it to the most deserving, still a long way to go and who knows who we are planning to sign.

6.) 03 Jan 2017 21:20:50
I don't think you can change your numbers anymore so would need to be a new singing I would say hopefully a big one to go with her iconic number.

7.) 03 Jan 2017 22:35:22
Buy wee Roberts and give him the number 7 jersey.

8.) 03 Jan 2017 23:00:10
Would absolutely love Roberts to sign but think wee need to except lads he won't be signing hope I am wrong tho.



31 Dec 2016 15:51:59
Guys I have just been told that, the guy who shouted " I hope you die" was in fact a Rangers fan hope this is WELL DOCUMENTED.

1.) 31 Dec 2016 17:54:36
The story seems to be "I hope you die! " was from the home support in a reaction to a "mon the hoops! " or something similar from our end. Poor show from anybody to shout over the silence tbh, never nice to see and embarrassing that people just can't help themselves for one minute.



09 Dec 2016 17:36:27
So guys if you had to pick 1 player you could buy in the Jan window, who would you buy between Roberts or Mcarthy?

1.) 09 Dec 2016 18:22:42
Roberts every time.

2.) 09 Dec 2016 18:54:33
I'd be happy with either, learning towards Roberts tho.

3.) 09 Dec 2016 19:10:04
Roberts for sure, like McCarthy but with Armstrongs form n the likes of Henderson n McGregor I want to see get a chance, but it has to be Roberts, a magic wee player n the type we like in our team.
Roberts n a new goalkeeper n I'd be happy with that.

4.) 09 Dec 2016 19:19:41
McCarthy is a more relevant player

Roberts on current form and capability is still flirting with the "luxury bracket " IE to play him is a luxury in the sense that he doesn't do everything required of a player in that position under the BR system. In saying that he is progressing in that regard and of course is s goal threat ( but then commons was a goal threat )

5.) 10 Dec 2016 09:41:28
Roberts isn't overweight, lazy and can pick a pass or two instead of shooting every time!
Agreed he can be a luxury but he is young and will develop (hopefully with us! )
Hail hail.

6.) 10 Dec 2016 12:17:55
Spot on island Celt, and don't forget Paddy Roberts doesn't stand in the same spot waiting for the ball n yet Commons was lauded as a mainstay of our team haha what a load of rubbish Roberts is a special talent n causes danger in almost every game, heis attack minded, created goals n scores them also n for me a definite 1st team regular, as for commons can't wait till he finally leaves, a year n a half too late.

@UJ yes we did under perform in certain games in the CL but even at that, we still amassed circa £25-30m, so if Sevco manage to get a license ( and why should they when again they have failed to provide accounts to standards) to play in next seasons EL and if they make it to 2nd place anyway let's see how they get on against what you consider inferior opponents. Can't wait 😊
