Brighton back in for Eddy?

I'm busy but I've got Airdrie Taxis number.


1.) 06 Aug 2021 16:05:41
Am no busy, so I was watching a couple of games v. Sevco from 2018 and he is now a shadow of the player he was and should be.
Hopefully he gets his move, we get some cash and improve to team and everybody's happy?

2.) 06 Aug 2021 16:33:18
I think that's the main problem OAB. We all how good the guy can be but when u see the way he is now its hard to watch and not go mad. Glad to hear you have the taxi on standby JFP.

3.) 06 Aug 2021 17:23:52
Al pick him up am no daen anything 🤣.

4.) 06 Aug 2021 17:39:47
I can drop him at Cairnryan in the morning â›´.

5.) 06 Aug 2021 19:13:25
Got a mate at DHL, just make sure the box is well taped up.

6.) 06 Aug 2021 20:38:42
If Eddy starts on Sunday Then the fans need to make him up his game.

7.) 07 Aug 2021 07:10:11
Southampton are supposed to bidding too but they won't or can't offer the wages Brighton are offering eddy.



26 Mar 2021 13:06:07
Unsure whether the wife is collaborating with Pedro and Cork Paul to send me over the edge given I'm worth more dead than alive.

But she's just come in from work and reported that Keano was allegedly seen in the Dakota Hotel.

Either that or he was heard feckn shouting.


{Ed007's Note - You'll be hoping Mark Chapman's escaped..... 😉

1.) 26 Mar 2021 14:24:41
J you'll be hoping it's actually in dakota 🤣.

2.) 26 Mar 2021 14:39:09
Dakota Hotel JFP?
There's no way Terry Thomas is forking out for that unless an announcement is imminent 😄.



31 Jan 2021 18:45:43
Is Davies signed for Liverpool?


1.) 31 Jan 2021 19:10:17
Not confirmed as yet JFP but they've apparently offered 2M as well as sending their young Dutch CB, Sepp Van Den Berg, to PNE on loan for the remainder of the season.

2.) 31 Jan 2021 19:14:39
So he hadn't signed any pre contract to join us then.

3.) 31 Jan 2021 19:15:47
sore one if we do miss out.

4.) 31 Jan 2021 19:21:33
a real sore one and one to join the list of regrets this shouldn't have been allowed to happen no way.

5.) 31 Jan 2021 19:31:49
What half decent player outwith scotland is going to sign for us at present when no one knows who's running the asylum.
We are a complete basket case.

6.) 31 Jan 2021 20:16:58
Every time we try to sign a player it takes weeks. Other clubs get these things done in a matter of days. We seem to haggle over every penny and make sure every intricate details benefits the club rather than just agree a price and a wage.
We’ve had since January 1st to talk to Davies if we wanted him. We’ve know the defence needed work, but we wait till the last couple of days, take ages over it and someone comes in a steals him in a matter of hours.
I know I’m making it more simplistic than it is, but look how quickly the Sevconians get dead done. Liverpool will have him signed in a matter of hours.
We really are a sham of a club.
You can guarantee Lennon will see out the season, and I definitely wouldn’t bet against him being here next season.

{Ed007's Note - We've been talking to Davies agent for weeks and he was in no hurry to leave PNE, the pre-contract is agreed but not signed - there was also talks held with TRIFC, Newcastle and Bournemouth.
If a player chooses somewhere else that's hardly Celtic's fault.}

7.) 31 Jan 2021 20:55:24
Fair enough on this one if Davies stalled, but we always take ages to get deals done when other clubs have them done quickly.

{Ed007's Note - Honestly mate it doesn't work like that although it sometimes feels like it does. Most transfers are long drawn out affairs and things can change in the blink of an eye. Without taking a dig at you, Degsy or anyone else but the normal fan in the street has no idea what's involved and to be honest neither did I until I started doing this and learning from people like Ed001 & Ed002 - I was the exact same and just try to pass on what I've learned and found out over the years.}

8.) 31 Jan 2021 21:31:14
If PNE know he has agreed terms with us, and Liverpool offer the reported 2 million, of course they would accept, it’s two million or potentially nothing. And it can’t be celtics fault, even if we wanted to spend the 2 million, what player would reject the chance of Liverpool to stay at PNE or join us. We need to be more positive now and build for the future, loan deals make better sense, let the next manager and with any luck DOF choose the players required rather than acquiring a squad of previous choices, especially when signings have been so poor. We think we are only going for these pre contracts as it’s a nominal fee for players with a higher value, business decisions rather than footballing.

Motherwell have apparently accepted an offer from Celtic for Declan Gallagher?


1.) 30 Jan 2021 19:57:32
Oh super more rubbish to add to the stockpile.

2.) 30 Jan 2021 19:59:03
Is a swap deal for Lennon?

3.) 30 Jan 2021 20:37:28
shocking if we have.

4.) 30 Jan 2021 20:46:36
Any news on the Preston defender yet?

5.) 30 Jan 2021 21:57:46
Kev, Davies has agreed a pre contract with Celtic. Talks are now ongoing to see if a deal can be done before the window closes. If a deal can’t be reached we will announce the pre contract deal.

6.) 30 Jan 2021 23:04:39
A definite drop in standard but will do a job in a team with young Welsh I feel. Bitton can't stay at the back, Duffy has to leave and I feel Ajer will leave also.

7.) 30 Jan 2021 23:46:02
This is why loans should only be allowed until the new manager comes in. We don't want to fill the squad with players that ain't good enough and won't want to move on because they won't find a better wage elsewhere. Unless it's genuine quality we are bringing in, which clearly Gallagher isn't.

8.) 31 Jan 2021 07:54:50
I don’t agree on the Declan Gallagher view. The bhoy has proven himself on the International stage and the money and wages it would take, has to be considered a good squad player. Duffy made a few mistakes, however he didn’t have a decent keeper behind him. One which could easily have saved both of those goals. When NL said at the start of the window that GK was not a position we were looking to strengthen in, I was worried about second place then and I’m getting more and more worried as the day goes on, surely we could get a keeper in on loan until we find some team crazy enough to take Barkas off our hands. Also if there is someone earmarked for the Celtic job at the end of the season, give it to Broonie and Kennedy, until then. Second place is in serious jeopardy and not only that, each and everyone of us are going to be robbed of our only escapism from this C.V. Watching Celtic was supposed to help ease the hardship of these lockdowns, we pleaded to get the football back, given the choice, I would rather get the season called now. Let the fn red arrows fly over and the rubbish of 55 start. I’d much rather that, than endure this for another few months and then listen to that rubbish then. Things are not going to improve unless something is done and it is breaking my heart and sickening me more and more each day. HH 💚🍀.

9.) 31 Jan 2021 10:26:42
Gallagher is dugmeat. Proven at international level haha he has had 1 decent game for Scotland embarrassing signing if it happens.

10.) 31 Jan 2021 11:00:28
I’d take Declan Gallagher, if only as a squad player. But I’d say he’s probably better then what we have at the moment with injuries, want aways and loans. Not just a new team next season, possibly a new squad 🤷🏼‍♂️.

11.) 31 Jan 2021 15:44:48
Dc, the boy is a player, can read the game and if you can’t see that, I’m sorry bud. He’s actually had a couple of good games and that’s playing beside players, he’s never played with before. HH.

12.) 31 Jan 2021 16:26:04
Bbb209 are you serious Duffy made mistakes because the goalkeepers weren’t good enough.

13.) 02 Feb 2021 07:02:39
Hi Ok, I meant we are punished even more, than if there was a better keeper. Not defending Duffy one bit. Right from the start if every game, he goes through players trying to win a ball he has no chance of getting to and gives away needless free kicks. Some if his antics in the box are wild, throwing himself about like a keeper. So the answer to your question is no. Merely that it is highlighted even more by our lack of a good keeper. I also don’t entertain the fact that JK is a good coach either, as our defence is absolutely shocking, so good knows what he is teaching them.

Are you still supporting Hamilton food bank?


{Ed007's Note - Yes mate, I'm still collecting what I can during the week and taking it to the Chapel on a Saturday and I'll be starting our Christmas collection at the beginning of next month.}

1.) 14 Oct 2021 21:03:52
ed i was thinking of getting a signed photo from the Celtic store to give you to raffle of mate for the foodbank. could do it like the raffles people do numbers 1 to 59 when all numbers are sold the next lottery draw the bonus number in that national draw will be the winning number. could do a 5ver or 10er a ticket what you think those numbers will all sell mate with the forum and podcast.

{Ed007's Note - Gee John that's really generous of you mate ?? If you want to do that I can get it sorted out.}

2.) 14 Oct 2021 21:13:32

Good stuff.

Feckn tragic that in 2021 we need food banks more than ever.

I’ll drop you an email tomorrow. ☘️.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers mate. It's amazes me that they're just accepted now as part of every day life.}

3.) 14 Oct 2021 21:21:04
its the least i can do buddy breaks my heart knowing people have to visit foodbanks for a meal.

{Ed007's Note - When folk (couples) are out working every hour they can get and still need help to feed their kids and themselves there's something far wrong mate. You're a good lad Oor Indy ?

4.) 15 Oct 2021 06:02:18

Before the board ask questions of Ange. I'd like to see us support Ange to ask questions of the board. Goodnight lads.


1.) 30 Sep 2021 22:45:37
In our 2 games since Sunday, Celtic have had 40 shots at goal but we only managed One goal.
The keepers made 12 saves and the rest of the shots have been off target.
We need to be more ruthless.
I hope the rumours from yesterday about our manager are untrue because I still believe Ange will bring the Celtic supporters success.

2.) 30 Sep 2021 23:25:33
What were the rumours Buzz I missed that?



29 Sep 2021 20:56:09
Spent ma £50 voucher the day. in Coatbridge Celtic shop. wan T-shirt. £25.second T-shirt. £24.feckn nothing fur a pound. and ah wisnae just spending £49 and leaving a pound on the table. so I got tablet fur Duffy. (the wife) . two feckn quid. ad tae put a pound tae it. The Commercial Director at Celtic I know not who he or she be but they deserve a feckn bonus.


1.) 29 Sep 2021 21:13:12
My son misplaced his voucher. My daughter had another look for it tonight but she couldn’t find it.

2.) 30 Sep 2021 04:17:27
The deadline is today to spend your £50 voucher.



24 Sep 2021 17:06:23
Great article by friend of the banter page Jeanette Findlay with regard to just another Saturday in Glasgow on the 19th September. Well said Jeanette. Call them out.




16 Sep 2021 21:53:56

Ffs calm doon.

We're aw disappointed but there is much to be positive about. Away with your negativity.

Brenda never leaned to shut up shop.

Ange will learn.


1.) 16 Sep 2021 22:06:58
JFP, fair enough, you can keep on making excuses for shyt performances if it makes you feel better. You might find it acceptable but I never will. My heart is too deeply invested in my club to listen to the kinda bollox you're spouting.
Have a bit of fekkin passion and call it out for what it is. It ain't fekkin good enough.
I like Ange, I like his philosophy and I think his long term goal is good, I don't have an issue with that but in the important games we're having to deal with I think it's fair to say that we're falling short. He has been backed with quantity and not quality. Tell me what's wrong with that opinion. HH.

2.) 16 Sep 2021 22:15:49
Aye its great betting your st mirrens and Dundees but every time we've played the better teams especially away from home we've fell short and that's a fact, although once we have everyone back better times lie ahead, but the squad still ain't strong enough if soro is our answer to losing calmac.

3.) 16 Sep 2021 22:28:41
If we're going to play Ange football we need to learn how to not fold when we concede a goal. They need a good head doctor.

4.) 17 Sep 2021 01:12:29
And first prize for over reaction of the night goes to Bestybhoy, bet you would be great crack to go for a pint with?? You don't sit in 139 of the Jock Stein do you? There's a moaning fkr just like you sits behind me.

5.) 17 Sep 2021 02:11:04
Ffs we done exceptionally well considering defensively in midfield a paperweight would of done a better job than Soro.

6.) 17 Sep 2021 07:13:48
We went to betis away in Europe with 4/ 5 starters missing gave a good go at it and played some amazing football. All this after an entire squad change only a few weeks ago and people still find a reason to moan. Europe is a bonus this year for me, especially after the HUGE overhaul at the club. A lot more positives than negatives from last night IMO and some fans need to be realistic.

7.) 17 Sep 2021 09:19:51
Missin oor star striker 1st choice winger captain and best player, squad so threadbare there was only one option from the bench, away to a la liga side and still managed 3 goals, hit the post had a goal chopped off … kept gon right to the end . if that’s a shyt performance can’t wait to see in a good performance.

8.) 17 Sep 2021 10:54:54
The ultimate priority this season is undoubtedly the league. Europe will be our yardstick as to how we are improving. Going forward, if we can improve on the European stage, the domestic stuff should take care or it’s self. We are a work in progress, early stages. Nobody likes defeat ( KD “show me a good loser and I’ll show you a loser”) but we need to be realistic. We will have a few highs and lows to come, but as long as we keep progressing, I’m loving watching us ( not the getting beaten bit ) . Unless a Qatari royal family buy us, our limitations will always be a factor so let’s just enjoy the show.

Lads I asked on podcast weeks ago if their was a bigger problem at Celtic Park and called out Dermot Desmond our absentee landlord who to date has been silent. I haven’t renewed season ticket but it was a formality as was ma laddies but for the first time in half a decade I’m asking myself should I? Here’s the craic. Last year you paid £600 and didn’t watch a game. This year can we have £600 again please but we don’t know who the manager is or if you’ll be allowed into the stadium but give us your money anyway. Now it’s the manager deal is belly up but deadline date for paying is 25.06.21. Oh and here’s a £50 voucher which we hope makes up for a c**t of a season when we were found sleeping at the wheel. (Please note expiry date) . Come on to feck Celtic or I may decide Mary’s Meals and Albion Rovers are more deserving of my hard earned cash.

Did anybody see Alex Ferguson speaking about Rangers Directors asking him about his wife’s religion when he signed. He was very genuine and said he let himself and his wife down and quote ‘should have told them to f**k off’.
