hey ED your doing amazing job stay on it and thanks. i know your feelings about lenny hopefully that's the old lenny.
i also hope you are wrong, let's see what he does in the qualifiers, keep the site open you pretty neutral although hurting. i think we have got this we just need to keep momentum going.

{Ed007's Note - The site will stay open, Andy but it wouldn't be me running/editing it. I really can't see myself holding the same level of interest in Celtic with Lennon at the helm, if it wasn't for my nephews I'd cancel my season tickets. Going into my 10th season doing this and there's absolutely nothing at the Club to motivate me into spending my entire day keeping up with everything and editing the sites, I certainly won't be watching every game - I just can't put myself through watching that.
What is they say, when the fun stops, stop?}

Well for what it's worth Ed I hope you stay. I can understand where you're coming from though and it's your call. Just make sure you post as a member if you do decide to take a back seat as your insight and input us much appreciated.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, JT. I'll see what happens and how I feel over the next week or so.}

Gutted to hear that Bond, I went from elation to disappointment last night. Hoping he is not in to be Lawells beatch.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

You would be a huge loss to the page Ed. Totally understand though i'm trying to put a positive spin on the situation but if truth be told i am scunnered with our Board, again. So much so that i'll be taking my usual summer leave. I'll fire you an email soon regardless. HH.

{Ed007's Note - Yeah keep in touch mate and enjoy your summer.}

26 May 2019 18:25:17
You too mate, take a wee time out then hopefully you might feel better about it.

{Ed007's Note - Maybe I'll wake up and it's all been a very bad dream lol.}

26 May 2019 18:48:15
I'm counting on it 😂.

{Ed007's Note - It worked for Bobby Ewing! 😁

Feel for you Ed that this has put a damper, for you, in what should be a great time of celebration for all Celtic fans in creating history. HH.

{Ed007's Note - Look at the site over the last few months and since yesterday, would you give up 10-12 hours a day of your time for free to trudge through the complete drivel some people send in knowing it's only going to get worse next season with all the homo-erotic pish about Lennon being one of our own while we crash out the CL and domestic cups, get pumped in the EL and stumble over the line in the league playing turgid awful football?}

Ed007, better to move on if you feel that way. No point doing something if your heart is not in it. Could be worse, you could have just renewed two seats in the Walfrid, only to see NL getting the job!

{Ed007's Note - Luckily for me - and my nephews - it's my mum's money that renews 2 tickets in the South Stand every season. At least I won't spend an hour before every game looking for a stream next season.
I hope Mr Lawwell kept the banners to cover the empty seats, in these cost cutting days at the Club there's no need to buy new ones surely?}

I suggest a go fund you page page for all the hard work the ED'd put in FOC (Hopefully keep you carrying on the good work) .
You guys run with it week in week out for the love of the clubs you support and I'm sure all other readers/ posters appreciate you as I do.
I's clear you ain't in it for money, but it'd be good if you got some sort of reward for all the hard work and time you dedicate to this page. just my opinion but I'm sure many other would agree!

{Ed007's Note - It was never about the money for me mate. Even now Ed001 & Ed033 still struggle to cover the site fees etc when they could have sold out many times to regurgitate BS hit whoring stories for Sly (yes Sly have tried to 'buy' and influence the sites) or A N Other but that's one of the reasons why I've stuck at it for the past 9+ years. I have said numerous times that I think a Paypal donate button for those that can afford something to help Ed001 & Ed033 out would be great but there would be no pressure to give money, if you can throw in a fiver that's great but don't worry about it.
All the Eds put in the hours they can and I am just (un?)lucky enough that I can spend my days doing it because of my health situation while others have full time jobs and families to juggle.

If you leave Ed we will turn your entire house into a shrine to Lennon. Just remember we are all Neil Lennon.

{Ed007's Note - I think Yoda would have something to say about that! With his granny and brother staying over the back now I don't fancy your chances 😁

If you go Ed thanks for all your work, the site is a god send to Tim’s like me up here in Inverness. I really think we will be ok next season. I live in the hope that with a few good signings and the squad rejuvenated after their small break we can start all guns blazing and qualify for CL. Hail Hail to you Ed, YNWA.

I've been looking at this page for a couple of years now and I've only ever made one comment. To Ed007, I've really enjoyed your input into this site. More often than not you come across as objective in your remarks about the club and have a great attitude to other folks views about the club on here, its admirable. I am very disappointed myself about Lennon being offered the job. I genuinely think its a sham. The board received around a reported £9 million for Rodgers and that should've been used to secure a manager of much higher calibre than Lennon. I just don't rate Lennon and his ability to manage. His European record ain't great, granted he got further than Rodgers in the champions league but looking at his 13/ 14 record, one win in the groups stages and 5 loses suggests he was no better than Rodgers. In fact arguably I think Rodgers done much regarding the teams he was competing against in his groups. Honestly I think the board have tin-pot mentality written all over them. The economic boom from just having a manager with a bigger name was great for the club and now appointing Lennon will be both a concern for domestic football and European football. I can Celtic making loses unless a lot of players are sold because that economic boom will be collapsing with this appointment. From £100 million income back to £50-60 million before Rodgers was appointed. That'll be happening quick and players like Tierney, Rogic, perhaps even Forrest might be sold as a consequence to make the economic fall appear not as bad. Absolutely gutted as well. The only thing I am excited about is seeing shved tbh. That's it. Anyway I would still like to come on here on the future and seeing Ed007 here.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

set up the funding page Ed.
I am sure everyone would chip in a couple of quid here and there to help.
This is the best forum I have been on where it's not swamped with up the ra and anti-Brit drivel.
You Eds do a marvelous job of keeping the banter on track and there is a lot of great information comes in as well.
I learned so much about bankruptcy, admin, EBT's etc. on this site alone.
Some great regular posters as well (and some laughs along the way.
The live chat during games is also well handled.
So, a few quid here and there? No problem.

{Ed007's Note - Thanks, TT. We'll see what happens going forward.}
