Do you work for Close Brothers?

It's interesting that we have already decided the answer we can find facts to prove or justify that answer. Now with the likely resigning of Foster, albeit on loan, Football Scotland publish an article naming 5 famous celts who returned and it didn't work out (massive Celtic fans such as Andy Walker and Charlie Nicholas included) I find this just more negative journalism against Celtic as memory serves me right then there is one famous Celt who left Celtic and returned and did quite well in his second spell, Mr Bertie Auld.

Did you expect anything else for the SMSM?
Don't read any of it.

Big Jock came back - to manage - and become a legend, wee Bertie did the same, Mulgrew certainly had a better second spell than his first and you could argue the toss, Barney Battles and Tommy McInally also came back for second stints that lasted longer than their first.

Interesting that four of the five games today went to extra time. Judging on the last two games Paradise is no longer a fortress, more like a Wendy House. Thank God we play Rangers at Ibrox.

My team for saturday:

Brown

Forrest Julien, Bitton Odsonne

Morgan Griffiths Ajer Christie

McGregor Boli

Don't see much point in wasting time trying to win league cup and another little bit of tinkering with the team should stand us in good stead for the leaague campaign.

I think Brown would do better in goal than Bain after seeing his potential handling skills last night.

Play the youth team. At least they have a defence. Morgan and MJ ahead of Sinclair in a huge game is laughable. Calmag at LB is disgraceful. Lennons starting 11 and formation was horrendous. Every single fan was dumbfounded when the line up was released.60 thousand could see it ending badly with that team and formation. Kennedy had seen what happened at ibrox when BR tried it with CM and MJ yet let's NL try it!

I nearly drowned in the bath donjim, brilliant😂😂😂.

Don't think we played particularly well today but it is nice to see that even playing badly and a weak left hand side with Boli and Morgan and Ajer out of position etc we can still score 5 inside the 85 minute limit. So if we can do that with a weakened, makeshift team then I am staying positive even though I do see Rangers being more of a threat this season.
I know this will never happen but I would love to see Hayes and Sinclair on the left on wednesday night.

Contrary to popular opinion NL didn't do too bad in picking his team for today.

As I said in an earlier post (somewhere) , one major differeence between Rodgers and KT is time. Rodgers can continue managing into his 70's like many others before him whilst on the other hand a players time i limited. Few can continue playing at the top level after ther mid 30's. KT was, is and as far as I am concerned always will be a Celt whilst thw manner of BR's leaving etc could quite easily have resulted in Celtic not winning the league last season. For me BR could easily have waited until May. KT obviously sees that to improve his game he needs to be tested week in and week out against the best and like it or not thatthe EPL where very goodplayers are more evenly spread around the various squads whereas Italy, Spain, Germany, France etc are a bit like 2-3 horse races. In an ideal world KT could have realized other dreams with us but unfortunaately its not a level playing field and I cannot see Celtic achieving another European title whilst we play in Scotland. I wish KT all the best and hope I live long enough to see him pull on the hoops again.

the site tuttomercatoweb in italian has Milan having talks with agent of Lovren and having thought about Ajer. Ruour probably originates in Italy ok but they haven't looked at Ajer just thought about him. For me a bit like the story of the Equadorian who said might come to us only for Lennon to say he had no interest.

Like everyone else I would be gutted to lose KT and until he actually goes I still have hope that he will stay for the 10. Surely 25m up front with add-ons only means that we would be willing to sell therefore Arsenal can speak with KT about a transfer but ultimately it is his decision whether to go or not as he has a contract with us.

with regards to selling Nitcham I think we have to wait until after he's spoken with the gaffer and if he is of the mindset which has been portrayed and its not just journalistic fantasy then I would get rid of him asap. I wouldn't even wait for someone to bid the clubs valuation as long as we make a profit I'd punt him. I certainly would not be in favour of holding on to him to we get what he's worth (he's no KT) as we would be paying good money for nothing. It would be like cutting of your d**k to spite your wife.

Facepainter wants Lawwell out and Lennon out but I am for keeping them and asking facepainter to close the door on his way out.

When we do get see St Moritz playing I hope he's as tough as his namesake Jack (aka Kieffer Sutherland)

I hope you are al right but I don't think it will be as easy as some seem to think. Rangershae been improving every year and considering they beat us twice there last season with a worse team I don't think we can take anything for granted. If they are serious about stopping us getting 9 in a row they will have to beat us and will be up for the game and try to set a marker. Of ccourse I hope we win but I'd be happy with a draw as it is an improvement on last season and we no longer own ibrox like we did a couple of seasons ago. On a positive note watching Bayo on sunday I think we have the makings of another 30m player on our hands if we consider the price of el buffalo.

@Malky
I would change "I don't think any of the anti Lennon . " to "I think the vast majority of anti Lennon posters . are not against Lennon as a person" and I agree as I too believe that the vast majority question Lennon's ability to take Celtic forward. I do however think there are some would not want Lennon even if he were to become Celtic's most successful manager ever because of past events in his personal life.
I think that there are merits in criticising his ability as like everyone he can make mistakes such as the team and formation against Cluj. In the end however if the job was given to the tea lady she would have my undying loyalty.
