So Thierry Henry is the latest rumour. He is an even worse candidate than Roy Keane. I hope this is just paper talk as these candidates are shocking.


1.) 29 Mar 2021 17:07:56
Naw and double naw.

2.) 29 Mar 2021 17:18:49
It goes from bad to worse. And he is a cheat also.

3.) 29 Mar 2021 17:38:57
His name TH was mentioned at board level but quickly dismissed. The article was based round TH beng asked about the position rather than his name being linked with the job and he then gave his answer.

4.) 29 Mar 2021 17:48:44
The fact it was even mentioned shows they are a bunch of numpties.

5.) 29 Mar 2021 19:02:49
I would find it very concerning (if true) that The Board are still undecided enough to consider any Tom, Dick and Thierry that expresses the least wee bit of interest, even if just being polite.



26 Mar 2021 18:28:34
Anyone heard the rumour that Roy Keane is coming?


1.) 26 Mar 2021 18:54:03
First I'm hearing LAW.

2.) 26 Mar 2021 19:15:13
Keano? No chance LAW, he's out of our league and just because he's your preferred option doesn't mean the rest of us agree lol HH.

{Ed007's Note - WOW man is that true? I love Keano but the thought of him as Celtic manager is causing me all sorts of moral dilemmas - talk about head v heart, big heed v wee head confliction.}

3.) 26 Mar 2021 19:24:26

I think I heard that sadly.

I’m climbing up on the roof just now but if you hear anything (although that will probably be him) let me know.

{Ed007's Note - You better get Mrs JFP to shave your butt cheek for that tattoo.... lucky her eh 🤮

If true this is the biggest. Mistake since appointing Lennon. I am with you on climbing up on the the roof.

JFP While you are up on the roof can you check if you can see the pigeon that was delivering Stats from Buzz to Ed. He hasn't turned up yet.

9.) 27 Mar 2021 10:45:10
If Keane gets the job im following brown up the A80. He’d be horrific. Can’t believe someone said he’s out of our league. The guys done nothing in management. Great player, but no management pedigree whatsoever. I’d rather bring Lennon back.



25 Mar 2021 15:12:26
Scott Brown will be leaving the building in the summer.


1.) 25 Mar 2021 15:34:35
Brown has still got time to lift his 5th consecutive Scottish Cup on May 22nd.

2.) 25 Mar 2021 15:53:49
I wish him all the best great player and a great captain sad too see him go But I understand why he is going.

Sheffield United blog reporting that Celtic are in talks with Sheffield United to appoint Wilder.

They are also reporting that they have not sacked him because it means they would have to pay a large contractual fee, which they are haggling with Celtic over as they want us to stump up the cash.

How true this is anyone's guess.

If true he would not be my first choice but he is better than some of the names I have seen branded about.


1.) 13 Mar 2021 18:41:35
I wouldn’t mind Wilder as manager.
He prefers the 3-5-2 formation and we’ve seen before that formation,
If played properly blows away our opponents in Scotland.
In tougher games we can revert to a 5-3-2 system.
Wilder is a manager who will stay with Celtic for years and hopefully build a successful team.
Most other names who’ve been linked to the Celtic managers job like Howe, would only stay until they get a better offer from a club in the pub league.

2.) 13 Mar 2021 18:59:06
Was just reading about him there Buzz and he has transformed the last 4 out 5 clubs he has been at, picking up unpolished gems and giving them a chance and improving them. Teams are always well organised, might not be a bad shout to be honest.

3.) 13 Mar 2021 19:00:31
I think he is a good manager and would do well at Celtic but my reservation is he is not renowned for attacking football or developing youth players. That being said we could do a lot worse if he ended up coming.

4.) 13 Mar 2021 19:02:57
I hope this is a joke, this would be a terrible appointment.

5.) 13 Mar 2021 19:47:58
Why do you think it would be a terrible appointment JonBhoy?

6.) 13 Mar 2021 21:11:49
Well LennonAtWork
This guy spent £120m in the last 2 seasons on players like Burke £6m, Brewster £24m, Berge £24m, Ramsdale £18m, Mousset £10m and MCBURNIE £18m
The fact that this guy spent £18m on McBurnie should prove that he hasn't a clue about identifying a football player.
If you think our defence is bad, have a watch at Sheffield's, They won 1 game out of there first 18 this season and have only kept 2 clean sheets out of 28 games conceding 45 goals.
Lets also have a look at the players he thinks are strikers
Lys Mousset bought for £10m - 7 goals in 46 games
Oli McBurnie £18m - 7 goals in 57 games
Callum Robinson £7m - 1 goal in 17 games, sent to WBA on loan after 6 months
Richairo Zivkovic Loan signing from 2 division club in China, Wilder claimed "'We know enough about him, we've kept tabs on Richairo for a while and tracked his progress. He'll be unpredictable to other teams, but we know what we're getting and he wants to make the most of the opportunity.
'He will give us genuine pace at the top of the pitch. We're learning all the time this season, but pace in the Premier League is key and Richairo is someone we think can kick us on.
He played 5 times scoring 0 before being sent back to China

People on here have been saying we need a young forward thinking manager who will look to bring through our young players but then think this guy would be a good choice! Aye nae problem
But I guess people will say that he had a good season last year, Aye well some said the same thing about Lennon.

{Ed007's Note - I couldn't have told you who Sheffield Utd's manager was until the other day. My flabber will be well and truly gasted if Wilder is even in contention for the Celtic job.
If he is and gets the gig then the first 5000(ish) on the season ticket waiting list will be getting an e-mail from the ticket office VERY soon.}

7.) 13 Mar 2021 21:40:23
Honestly Ed, if people thought we were bad under Ronnie wait to see what happens if this guy gets the job. It will be the football under Ronnie along with the tactics, subs and fitness under Lennon.
If Wilder does get the job it will be Lawwell giving the fans a final 2 finger salute before he heads off into the sunset.
I that's the standard of managers we are looking at I would honestly rather we went for Stephen Robinson.

{Ed007's Note - WHOAH!!! Behave yourself there now Jon! #UntilRonnyIWasNeverHappy Seriously though from what I've heard and what's floating about Lawwell doesn't have any input on ANY new appointments. Apparently Desmond - under advice maybe - has instructed the board to trust Hammond's recommendations for now i.e Liam Shaw's. Hammond's knowledge of youngsters in the lower leagues of England might be seen as an asset moving forward especially when the post-Brexit regs kick in.}

8.) 13 Mar 2021 22:45:32
Mixed reaction between I Cannot believe this - and don't want to believe it. I said on here that once Celtic finally parted company with NL it would have been common sense to have at least one candidate 'sounded-out' beforehand (not including Big-Nose) .
The Celtic job is one of the biggest 'gigs' in football and there would have been plenty of interest from all over Europe.
Suddenly the media are trying to pair us off with a 53 year old, failed (miserably) manager who's previous experience prior to his relegation plight at Sheffield was at Halifax, Oxford and Northampton This has to be one of the earliest April Fools jokes ever?!

9.) 14 Mar 2021 08:07:03
Alex ferguson also failed at times and got sacked from st mirren. Same with mourinho, he has been sacked from a host of clubs. The point is getting sacked does not necessarily make you a bad manager and Wilder done amazing at sheffield utd. Like celtic Sheffield Utd have suffered this season from not having fans in the stadium.

Failure will always happen, it is how you bounce back that matters.

10.) 14 Mar 2021 09:17:32
I live in Sheffield so I am very familiar with wilder. All of the united fans I know are gutted he is going. He has a very unique system and seems to get the beat out of players. He took over Sheffield united in league 1 and got them to the premier league and finished mid table last year all with mostly the same players. However I have been told he does not want to work under a dof. So if we get him I would be very surprised if we go down that route.

11.) 14 Mar 2021 09:50:33
Onceabhoy he got Sheffield united from league 1 to the premier league where the finished 9th last season. He is very well regarded in english football and at Sheffield united. He is not like Lennon tactically or fitness wise at all. Burke has actually done well there since he signed. Yes they spent a lot of money this season which hasn't worked out but managers don't sign every player and the money they spent is still far smaller than most in the league. He succeeded everywhere else he uas been.

12.) 14 Mar 2021 09:55:40
Also they have had long term injuries to their CBS which is bad for most teams but because of how they play with the overlapping cbs it has meant they can't play their system.

13.) 13 Mar 2021 22:03:27
Yeah I was being sarcastic with the Lawwell bit, Sounds good in what you mentioned regarding Hammond.
You had also mentioned in the past that Hammond had recommended a few other players that for some reason either Lawwell or Lennon said no, If we are now trusting Hammond to bring in some players do you think there is a chance that he will get kept on once the new DOF and Manager is brought on board or will the DOF basically replace Hammond.

{Ed007's Note - A DOF will have a lot more strings to his bow & responsibilities than Hammond but he might find himself being made Chief Scout to work under the new DOF.}

14.) 13 Mar 2021 23:03:38
What's your gut on who it will be then ed? Looking at the names linked, nine fill me with confidence. I would think howe would be out again as soon as a Premier league job was available. And he is possibly waiting for Newcastle or Palace. think rafa wouldn't be a contender due to financial restrictions. maresca be a huge gamble.

My opinion is its kennedy or Keane still. don't think most be happy with that but I don't see many candidates.

{Ed007's Note - I think it'll be Keane or someone who's not been mentioned (much) yet.}

15.) 14 Mar 2021 11:37:31
They kind of blew the chance to finish in Europe spots as their form tapered off at the end of the season but they done really well in their first season back up. Their form this season has been shocking but as Cory mentioned that's a reasonable enough excuse. I think Wilder would do a decent job and I'd take him over most of the other candidates being linked.

16.) 14 Mar 2021 14:41:44
Slaven Bilic is out of work?

17.) 14 Mar 2021 14:47:09
I’ve been thinking Keane from the start tbh. At least he won’t take any s**t from players and also would expect them to be on the top of their fitness or they’d simply not get a game. Maybe we need someone that’s hard on the players, we’ve been lightweight for a long time and always get destroyed by physical teams. Never had a manager in that light really. Closest I can think is Strachan. If we can find the happy mediums between good football and physicality we could really be a solid team moving forward.

Others may not agree, the psychological aspect of the game needs to be taken care of in the seasons coming, fitness and composure.

18.) 14 Mar 2021 21:17:45
Ken, I have also said for a while that I had a feeling that it was going to be Keane.
I have also been thinking that we might make an announcement right before Sevco game, just like what happened when we announce Rodgers which happened the night before Sevco got beat off Hibs in the Cup Final.

19.) 15 Mar 2021 10:15:42
Bilic is out of work? He's always out of work. Maybe within that there's a clue. I'm not a detective, but I think going for him could be a mistake. We can't afford to make a mistake this time, although, we are all expecting one. I have exck6ded all the guys I would want to get it as non starters. I'm down to Jack Ross and Keane. Keane woukd want money to take on Slippy, so it's Jack Ross all day long or someone of that Ilk. Ambition is not in our boards psyche. I hope they surprise me, but I don't want to get ahead of myself thinking we will respond. A dangerous road for us thinking our board of Shoes Starers will pick up the taunting gauntlet thrown down by King.

20.) 15 Mar 2021 19:20:17
Wilder will not take Celtic job neither will he be offered it. The guy is old school manager who wants involved in EVERY department of the football club.
He doesn’t want DOF model and is as far from a yes man as you can get which should be applauded but on that basis our board would never appoint him and I don’t think he would be happy to just stick to managing the team.
Iv been wrong in the past but I really think this is not going to happen.
I actually think he would suit Aberdeen.



21 Feb 2021 23:29:21
I don't think it will be long before the sack the board fans are back outside the stadium, calling for the heads of the other directors.

The longer they keep Lennon in charge the more irrate people are going to get and the more damage they are doing the club.


1.) 22 Feb 2021 09:22:00
Buzz it will take fans a long time to forget this season. I blame the board for putting NL in this position where he needs to choose between the club and money. I do believe his legacy has been tarnished but if 3m is the reason we won't sack him worrying times are ahead. Massive down sizing will be on the way.

2.) 22 Feb 2021 09:56:54
There is noway lennon will be getting 3m a season. He is on a 1yr rolling contract. Lennon will be on about 1-1.5mill a season in my opinion.

3.) 22 Feb 2021 13:37:57
Agree with much of what's been posted regarding NL's position, the amount owed on his contract is almost immaterial, pay him off, draw a line under it amd move on.

Personally, I think if Neil had approached the board/ PL and come to a compromise agreement, he would have walked away with a lot more respect.

4.) 22 Feb 2021 13:49:20
I wouldn't be against the idea of getting rid of Lennon now and having Kennedy see out the season until a replacement is found. He can't be any worse. He would probably resort back to having the team like it was under Rodgers.

5.) 22 Feb 2021 15:09:04
@Marco and @BigBubs - no way is Lennon on anything close to 1.5 to 3 million. Rodgers was only on 2 million.

I remember when old Rangers died and a tribute act started up in their place. At the time McCoist was on 750k and Lennon was raging as it meant McCoist was getting paid more than him, despite managing in the lower echelons of football.

Now fast forward to the present, then my guess is Lennon will be lucky if he is on 1 million a season.

6.) 22 Feb 2021 15:45:40
LAW apparently bonuses are the issue not the base salary.

7.) 23 Feb 2021 08:25:41
Well I'm sure it will cost the board more in season ticket sales, merchandise etc by keeping NL at the club, they are just making more fans angry, pay the man and get rid, he's the face of the demise, he is the one who will get the stick, the board won't they hide in the clouds counting their pots of gold, embarrassing, I honestly can't believe this is still dragging on.

Before the weekend C.V. numbers were on the rise in Glasgow and after yesterday's escapades I have no doubt that the trend will continue.

Now from my understanding the police are supposed to protect the people of Scotland, as are the Scottish government. Therefore, it beggars belief why no plan was put in place to prevent this public health risk.

Now the whole country has been put at risk because these eejits think having a wee jolly is more important than the lives of others.


1.) 16 May 2021 08:02:52
mate if we had done the 10 we would have been out in force as well but its the way they behave when there out in force. and the fact it was allowed during the lockdown wile out treble treble was cancel due to safety concerns before we even had lockdown.

2.) 16 May 2021 09:29:51
We have dominated for 20 years and celebrated plenty but never have we seen scenes like that, it was Manchester all over again, thank feck they never won a treble.

3.) 16 May 2021 09:37:49
I've just seen a short video of yesterday's illegal mass gathering in George Square, where the neanderthals were Fighting with each other - not a cop in sight.

A separate video of three of their 'females' pis*hing in the street and, as always, they leave utter carnage in their wake.

For this to happen once was ridiculous, for it to happen twice is shameful for our authorities, although when you have one of Police Scotland's officers actually on duty and wearing a Sevco scarf, what chance have you got?

Utter scum.

There is a proven phenomenon known as in-group bias, which you may or may not have heard of before.

The reason I am mentioning it just now is I wanted to point out why we need referees with no connections to the groups within Scotland.

So what is in-group bias?

In-group Bias (also known as in-group favoritism) is the tendency for people to give preferential treatment to others who belong to the same group that they do. This bias shows up even when people are put into groups randomly, making group membership effectively meaningless.

It has been proven that people either consciously or sub-consciously favour people from their own group and it can result in prejudice and discrimination.

Over the years there have been a lot of studies on this subject and it has been proven beyond doubt that in-group bias is real.

Celtic should be using these studies to build a case on why we need referees with no connections to groups within Scotland.

Only by doing this will we vastly reduce the bias among the referees in Scotland.


1.) 12 Apr 2021 20:04:12

8.) 13 Apr 2021 10:05:00
Very interesting about in-group bias, I think it can also be used to explain our failures on the field this season, in the squad there is/ was an in-group, in the managers team selections, which meant certain players got picked for no other reason than they were in the in-group.



11 Apr 2021 11:45:10
The Celtic board are opening themselves up to an almighty backlash if they appoint Kennedy or Keane, as neither of them have much support from the fans I know.

The same can be seen on social media with loads of fans wanting kennedy removed from all first team duties.

My personal view is Kennedy has not proven himself as a manager, so appointing him would be a huge risk. If he wants to manage celtic he should leave and cut his teeth at another club. If he shows he has what it takes then by all means consider him at a later date.


1.) 11 Apr 2021 15:48:21
Kennedy will not he appointed. Even our board of ambitionless ditherers wouldn't do that. As soon as they eventually appoint someone, their full focus should be on interviewing for a new board. Every single one of them complicit in allowing Lennon to Remain in post after September, are useless to us if we ever want to fulfil the potential the club has. I take comfort in the go cheap and hope Lawell going. But they all should. They were either party to the decision to not act, or were utter rubbishbags who meekly went along. We need neither. I was initially against Howe getting in h8s D0F, but thinking about the board of shoelookers, could he do any worse than that shower 8n judgement? I don't think that's even possible.



09 Apr 2021 17:38:11
Just give Lucien Favre what ever he needs and get him in pronto. One of the first names to be heavily linked that I would be delighted to get in.


1.) 09 Apr 2021 19:35:41
Experience at a high level in a very good league, we could do a lot worse than Favre.

I am inclined to agree with all that Del.

However my main gripes are we didn't get a backup right winger in the summer or january and i highlighted this at the time. We didn't make any signings in january even though it was evident there was a need for some, which was akin to accepting defeat. We allowed lennon to continue until the damage was irrepairable. There was no planning to get a replacement for Lennon and even now we are without a manager.

@weewhitey - i don't think it shows he was homesick but as we don't know all the details we can't say for certain. The only thing we know for certain is his mother died and as a result he left Burnley and went back to Bournemouth.

If i were to make a guess i would say that he cares for his family and wanted to be close to help his dad. I know this is what i would do in that situation.

I agree with much of what you said.

In my view the board have been the biggest disgrace and everyone of them should be shown the door.

They allowed Lennon to continue, when it was obvious he needed to be replaced.

They gave 10 in a row away without a fight.

They did not recruit in January, unless you count Kenny.

They did not have a replacement for lennon, and we are approaching 3 months since his dismissal.

I don't mind losing our crown but i do mind giving it away without a fight.
