Living in Rome I am a bit out of the loop and as I only watch Celtic games I don't know how good this Turnbull kid is as I don't recall him setting the heather on fire against us. I personally would tell him not to let the door slam on his way out as these types of negotiations should be done behind closed doors and now that it's all in the public arena the club cannot allow itself to be held to ransom by a 19 year old from Motherwell.

I'm left wondering that maybe he doesn't want to play for Celtic but has to negotiate as Motherwell have agreed to sell him to us and therefore making impossible requests to block the move. Maybe he's waiting on a call from the world's most successful club to give him a big contract - however I know nothing about him and for all I know he's a diehard Celtic fan like McGinn and BRexit.

Hi Ed just wondering if i'm one of the posters you banned? Say this as some recent banter replies have not been posted. I really hope you stay on because i doubt if anyone as dedicated as yourself could be found to substitute you. May not always agree with you but i definitely respect you and your opinion. I hope todays frustration finishes soon and you get some serenity.

{Ed007's Note - If you were banned this wouldn't have reached me mate so no. It's fine to disagree with me btw as long as it's kept civil and regular posters like you get a lot of leeway as I really don't want to fall out with any of them, it's just us showing passion for the Club. It's all the wee angry mutants that create numerous accounts just to give me abuse because they don't have the intelligence to argue with me.
I've just seen your last post, I didn't put it up for the simple reason that if you knew me - or had been on the live chat - you would know I don't need told anything about that particular subject if you follow me. Congratulation btw, keep on keeping on. 🙏

That's two weeks in a row Castagne scores for Atalanta who are consolidaing a champions league place. I would be very surprised if he could be tempted to Celtic now.

The ship has well and truly sailed there. He'll be getting attention from some really big clubs.

Atalanta look a really tasty side as well, he might fancy staying put. Straight into the groups finishing 4th in Serie A these days.

If we had paid £8 mil we would have received almost 3 times that by selling him.

Instead we will go for someone worth 1mil who may sell for 6.

That's the difference between what we are doing and Ajax are doing. Acquiring your main targets early on before the value skyrockets.

I know we can be critical of the teams lack of goals this season and too many 0-0 draws but to be honest I'd be happy at this point with two losses and a 0-0 draw in the remaining matches. I'd be even happier if we win the league tomorrow at Ibrox without even kicking a ball lol. To be honest to win the league by 20 points or simply goal difference is all the same to me and this year with all the upheavels, injuries etc that we have had this champonship is really sweet.
Now only Hearts between us and another piece of history. COYBIG.

"And the three men I admire most
The Father, Son, and the Holy Ghost
They caught the last train for the coast
The day the captain died"

What a sad day! In these days in which we celebrate Christ's victory over death, defeating death forever we learn that Cesar now has entered into death to rise again in Christ.

Billy represents everything that is good about Celtic as a fan, a player, a manager and an ambassador.

Here in Rome Mass will be offered forthe repose of his soul but also for his wife and kids etc at this sad time

R. I. P Billy Mc Neill true legend.

Condolences to Billy McNeills family and friends. I had the privilege of speaking to him and John Grieg when they were on Scotland duty.
Both were standing at Tommy Hughes newspaper stall outside Queen Street station.
How lucky was l they both were happy to chat. Two legends at the same time.
You will be greatly missed Billy.

for those who think next season is going to be a long one I don't think it can be any longer than this one. we diddn't play great all season and somehow managed to pull another treble out of the bag. We may have gotten the treble anyway with Rogers but we will never know as he ran away when the going got tough. I think next year with the squad revamped and Lenny's passion it will be easier but i suppose if we don't get a quadruple treble it will be Lennons fault.

Agree with everything that has been said here and absolutely Clarke should try to get him for Scotland, in fact I'd love to find some distant Irish relative to sign him up for Ireland.

I try to keepmy judging to "facts" and whilst its true that he refused to play in the CL qualifier we took the word of BREXIT rather than the word of Boyata and why shouldn't we have, after all BREXIT is a and always has been a diehard Celtic supporter who was in his dream job and was going to get us the 10. Perhaps facts now show that Boyata is probably the more trustworthy of the two and when he said he was unable to play he actually was unable to play. I think many of us had a knee jerk reaction when he left the field in the last game with rangers and yet again it seems Boyata knows his body and knew whe couldn't play on. It is like seeing someone steal and immediately he is labeled as a thief but perhaps someone is holding his family hostage forcing hi to steal, he is dying of hunger forcing him to steal, he is a klyptomaniac unable to resist the urge to steal etc etc.

Apart from winning La Liga twice with Valencia about 15 years ago and the english championship with Newcastle all he has won is cups. According to wikipedia he has less than a 50% win rate as a manager 550/ 1103. Coud he do a job for us, probably but hope not. For me Benitez has an EGO which makes the special one Mourinho look like St Francis of Asissi.

If Morelos were to come to us I would support him (hope Idon't have to eat those words) but I don't believe it would ever happen. Over there he is a big fish in a wee pond whilst here he would rarely get into the starting eleven. I agree with everyone with regards to his temperament and diving ability and that he hasn't scored in big games. These are facts that can't be disputed. I may differ with my interpretation of the facts. I think he is a good old fashioned poacher and if you get the ball to him in the bo he will score (not always, as shown against us) . I think the fact that he doesn't score in big games is not so much that he bottle it but that because the quality of the defenders etc he rarely gets the opportunuty to score as the ball doesn't get to him.

I think if the sevconians were to analyse the Alfredo Morelos situation they would probably drive him away from Ibrox rather than look for 20 m that they will never get because he has costthem the league. How many points have they dropped because he has failed to score against etter opposition and how many points have they dropped because he was suspended and couldn't play. If it wasnt for his disciplinary record etc WE WOULD PROBABLY BE CHASING sEVCO. I hope he stays at Rangers as his playing for Rangers does as much as anything to guarantee us the TEN and Beyond. ALFREDO WE LUV U hahaha.

It is hard to understand how a squad player from the mighty West Brom who was unable to get playing time in the english championship could not command a starting position in the spfl and play a full 90 minutes of every game, after all this is scotland not spain or italy. I would suggest to Arsenal if they want a £15million player they should bid for Burke.

I would not read too much into anything! It would be interesting to know what percentage of fans actually go on the social media and voice opinions, does anyone know? Even if it's 25% (which I genuinely doubt) and 90% were against Lennons appointment that doesn't tell us anything at all because maybe the other 75% who don't use social media are all in favour of the appointment (I doubt this also but nothing can be proved) . I would also guess that the majority on social media are the younger fans who don't remember what it was like before Fergus came in etc etc.

donjim

{Ed007's Note - Remember before Fergus came in and we appointed managers simply because they were an ex-player or better still Irish? The more things change the more the stay the same eh?}

We need better than SPL players, people like Compper, T0ljan and Burke. If they are good enough doess it really matter in which league they play? on That logic we never would have bought, Scott Brown, Ryan Christie, Jonny Hayes or Scott Bain. I'm not saying that Stephen 0'Donnell is good enough for Celtic (I don't know) but I wouldn't be deterred from signing someone just because he plays in the SPL. It certainly didn't stop Southampton forgiving us a lot of money for our SPL players.
