ED007 have u heard of this journalist Nicolo Schira suggests that the under23 Man City coach is a celtic target for next manager?

{Ed007's Note - That's been kicking about for a while, Richy but I've no idea if there's anything in it, we always seem to be tied in with City when it comes to rumours.
Have you ever thought that The City Football Group could be lining up a takeover? 😁
Would you(s) be happy with that? Remember Mark Lawwell's still there and he would LOVE a job at Celtic, Ronny's over in the US......
I'm away to my nest while you think about that 😂

Ed anything come up about a potential signing of Thomas Robert. I see the club have come out and said he was training with us or was just because lower leagues are finished.

{Ed007's Note - He has been on trial with us but I have no idea how it went or if we will pursue him mate.}

My who I wouldn't like thoughts for manager have been thrown up in the air because big Moyes. thought he was done and a football dinasaur didn't want him for us . big guy having excellent season.

I see McInnes has left Aberdeen.

{Ed007's Note - Lennedy.......?

Oldkilly,

He didn’t leave they sacked him.

Thats half the leagues managers left or sacked this season that must be a first?

08 Mar 2021 22:01:09
Could Aberdeen or JK be up for that couldve been what JK referred to when he talked about his own ambitions been put to the side.

{Ed007's Note - That would be an ideal job for Jimmy Delaney' grandson, Richy.}

Every team in SPFL outside old firm has lost key players outwith managers control this season and not replaced with like for like quality.

I personally think McInnes is a decent manager but Aberdeen have really missed likes of mckenna and Wright and this has been evident in results. I don't know what their board was expecting.

A can see the season getting cut now. The police won't be wanting anymore of these gatherings. And you can you can bet your life that they will plan more so they might just say out of public safety no more games can go ahead.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Mar 2021 20:48:09
Would that be the same police who allowed them to gather at Ibrox and George Square and then failed to disperse them or issue them with fines for breaking C.V. laws?

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Mar 2021 21:03:42
I saw a police man going with two sevco supporters posing outside ibrox yesterday for pictures. Outter disgrace. Best thing here in Ireland is the Irish new channels don't mention them winning the league.

Most of Police Scotland were celebrating with them.

08 Mar 2021 21:11:29
What could the the police do tho, if they went heavy handed it would of been worse. It shouldn't have happend.

{Ed007's Note - Have officers on the ground and in vehicles with loudhailers telling the crowds to disperse, giving people fixed penalties for breaking lockdown restrictions and isn't drinking alcohol in the street in Scotland illegal? If they don't disperse send in the riot squad to disperse them, use their batons, police horses & dogs, use their CS spray to keep the law.
How about them doing the job they're paid for? They're quick enough to stop supporter's buses to tax their carry out.}

Agree2 0Disagree

08 Mar 2021 21:32:01
How would that help the safety of theirs officers or the public tho?

{Ed007's Note - It's their job to protect the public and they get paid to make the tough &unpopular decisions and do their job or do you not think law breakers should face any consequences? They were happy enough to challenge the Celtic fans that turned up at Celtic Park.
If you don't have the minerals to face a marauding horde then you shouldn't be a front line police officer and should probably join the army where you can just shoot, torture and bomb innocent people willy nilly with no consequence.
As I said, they're tough enough to pull over supporters buses and tax their drink, kick in young lad's front doors at 6 am because they let a pyro off at a game etc etc.}

Lennon it was a huge failing by Police Scotland. They should of been issuing fines to anyone, each police officer and their corroborating officer witnessed breaking c. v laws. If they never complied, arrest each person who failed to comply.

The failings of Police Scotland has now set a culture where people gathering in mass crowds either protesting or rioting now know as long as there is 1000s the police won't do anything.

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Mar 2021 21:51:25
There was a video I got sent a link to (gone now) of a polis wearing a blue mask doing the bouncy with them. They never tried to disperse the crowd cos they were part of it.

{Ed007's Note - It's sounds better than the one I got sent of some fat slob pulling the head off it 🤢🤮 Another one showed a pi$$ed up "fellow bear" dodging bullets Matrix style and one of them dipped his pocket for his phone.
But will anything beat the guy in Bellshill that set his garden on fire while letting of fireworks 😂😂 Well there might be one on the horizon when the idiot over the back from me turns up at work for his job on the side tomorrow. #You'reGettingSackedInTheMorning #YourGaffersSonIsMyGodson

Whoever at the top, made the decision to give their fans a Police escort from Ibrox to George Square, it sent out the wrong signal.
The Police should’ve let it be known that George Square was a no go area.
The Police should’ve cordoned off George Square with threats of fixed penalties.
Use loudhailers to get the point across that CCTV is recording their every move.
They would eventually disperse to their house parties.
And the fact the Police stood back and allowed alcohol was asking for trouble.

{Ed007's Note - That's the easiest way to start dealing with crowds like that no matter what they're doing, if you're drunk or drinking in public you get lifted.}

Hope we not only hear about who is next manager, but also more pre contract signings.

For next season we need experience not projects to get us back on track. Some good players out there who's contracts are expiring. Also in Scandinavian nations, there are some quality players that would make a real difference

Only 4 players I would keep are Turnbull, McGregor, Welsh and Taylor. If we can get Kenny back next season, added bonus.

{Ed007's Note - We still need to sign projects imo, Phil but that's what they should be, young players giving a clear plan of their journey to be a first team player in 2/3 seasons, maybe 1 season for some or maybe some will shine like Frimpong and get a chance right away. The projects should be part of the forward thinking plan not the here and now.
I'd actually say players like Turnbull, Welsh, Soro and Hazard are still projects, they still have a lot to learn and it's all about levels, Edouard could be seen as a project at a so called "bigger" club.}

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Mar 2021 20:11:32
Ed007 I agree that project players are important for future and some do like you say shine straight away. Just feel we could do with a few experienced players to help rebuild process.

I reckon eddy will either end up at Leicester City or back in France.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah I agree about that, we will need some experience brought in definitely. Arsenal could also be a possible destination for Edouard, he turned down a move to West Ham last summer - well his agent did - but that might change depending on where they finish in the league but Leicester, who also spoke to his agent, will be involved plus any interest from the continent.
Celtic will also still be looking for a "significant fee" so you can forget the talk of £15 million being enough.}

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Mar 2021 21:09:01
I can't see Edouard breaking into the English Premier league straight away. He will need a full season before he is a hit down there. A lot of players leave Celtic for bigger things down south and fail. Christie will fall into that category. His father thinks he is Ronaldo or Messi .

{Ed007's Note - I wouldn't say he'd need a full season if he moves early enough in the window but clubs look at VVD and Tierney and think is it worth gambling £20ish million just now knowing we'll still recoup that in the Pub League if it doesn't work or wait until they've played for a Southampton and pay £50, 60 or 70 million.
If McBurnie is worth £20 million Edouard's worth at least that all day every day.}

08 Mar 2021 21:11:21
Young projects have always been the lifeblood of all the top, big clubs; but recently our youngsters have been filing through the exit door in worrying numbers. Possibly because of a lack of structured, chronological development and progress within the current set-up?
Or maybe agents filling their heads with fairy tales? I don't know.
Hopefully the next manager and DOF, will restructure the whole place.

{Ed007's Note - I think it's a bit of both, OAB.}

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Mar 2021 21:06:13
Ed007 your right about £15m talk. Personally I reckon its just tabloid lies.

Although this season his form has dipped compared to last season, he has still scored 20 this season in all competitions plus scored a good few for France u21. Added to that past few seasons he has proved he can score against good teams in Europe, that's at least £25m.

{Ed007's Note - Spot on, Celtic wanted £30 million last summer and there were takers, clubs at Pub League level or the big clubs on the continent look at things longer term and players having a bad few months doesn't make them bad players.}

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Mar 2021 21:32:36
It's a hard balance to have the right mixture of youth and experience. If you look back to the state the team was in when MON left. We had a massive wage bill with many well past their best. I do love to see a youthfull attacking Celtic side but the spine should have the experience we need. McGregor Forrest and I would keep brown around but in reduced capacity for the transition. I also feel Soro an Turnbull should be playing together the rest of the season to continually build their chemistry going forward. What experienced players would yous like to see philtim and ed?

Agree0 0Disagree

08 Mar 2021 21:37:22
Ed, obviously we know the 3 main names they have mentioned for dof, but have you actually heard if we have started an interview process with anyone? The season has gone and the longer we stand still waiting the harder it will be next year . We supposedly have signed shaw from Wednesday and close to the lad from Wigan. Who is getting these players signed up, is it lawell?
Risky again as when the new coach, dof come in, they may not fancy them, which means we could be stuck with more players on our wage bill that seems to be wasted wages . Whoever the new ceo, old ceo decide on, surely it needs to be sorted out as soon as possible.

{Ed007's Note - It depends what you count as an interview, Quinny but I'd say that we must have. All I know for 100% certain is that DD has spoke to Roy Keane 💚peace be upon him💚 a few times about Celtic so is that an interview? He'll have spoken to a lot of people he trusts for advice and what's needed, I would also be confident in saying that Rodgers has spoke to DD as well.}

Next Manager linked with Celtic, Tony Mowbray DOF and Paul Lambart as manager. Lambart sacked by Ipswich and Mowbray in trouble at Blackburn. No fee required as both will be free agent's. 🤣🤣🤣
THE DREAM TEAM TO TAKE US FORWARD.
OR
Roy Keane DOF
GUS Poyet Manager
Eric Cantona as Club spokesman

Hi Ed reading through the post from today. And I was one on about tactics yesterday but tactics you are right we should have won that game comfortable yesterday. And for Griffiths he let us done terribly this season not been fit for preseason and trying to get match fit all season. The players have to stand up and take responsibility for this season and getting Lennon sacked aswel. I think kimela could do with a loan.

Just watched a great documentary on Amazon Prime called ‘All or Nothing’ it is based on a behind the scenes look with Pep Guardiola during 2017-18 season at Man City, it is a brilliant football documentary.
It really shows his passion and that he is a born winner and a great manager.
If you like football, you will really enjoy it.
