So what's everyones idea for the NEW HOTELs name

I am thinking something classy like

it wouldn't upset anyone would it!

Agree0 0Disagree

23 May 2017 21:11:32
oooh like that, what about
Paradise House Hotel:
Caesars Hotel:
The Kings Hotel:
Hotel 1888:
Walfrids Retreat:


{Ed007's Note - I've said it before but I'd simply call it The Kerins after Brother Walfrid's real name. Sounds quite classy imo and still Celtic related. If we're going to get the best out of it we don't want it called something too tacky or commercialised. Even the origin of the name would be a good way of getting every person that stays there reading something about Brother Walfrid and why/how the Club were founded.
Paradise House Hotel sounds like a brothel in Bulgaria! The Kings Hotel, is that Charles, William or George that's after? Walfrid's Retreat sounds like something middle-aged women go to for a spa weekend when they're going through the menopause and Billy McNeill's nickname is spelt Cesar.}

Seen the hotel plan so for a name would we go for (1) Ceasers Palace (2) Bunnet Bedrooms or (3) The Warburton? ☘️.

Just posted a pic which was sent by my mate. It shows a newspaper article detailing the TV and Place income that clubs in the EPL receive.
Chelsea get £38+m for finishing top and an additional £30+m from TV.
Sunderland who won just 6 games get almost £2m for finishing last and £13+m from TV.
Disgusting as this is (and there is more money from various other sources pumped in to EPL) it did make me think about the TV deal we have here.
We have Celtic TV and sevco have their own version.
How much of an effect do these channels have on the negotiating power of the SPL when it comes to a TV deal? Do we make more from Celtic TV than we could get from an SPL exclusive deal with a TV company?
I realise we will not get anywhere near the amount the EPL gets for various reasons (quality being, imo, one of the least factors) but could we do better as a combined exclusive deal than we do now?
Just a thought.

{Ed001's Note - it is £1.9m a place prize money, roughly.}

In the UK, we must be getting more viewers than some EPL clubs. It's the two EPL clubs combined though, in a particular match that is what we're competing against. Plus, I've always assumed it was the International viewing figures that pumped the EPL prices up and that SKY just sold the rights to foreign broadcasters? Still feels like as a club, we're getting a sore deal though.

Spot on JB67 and when the world learns to redistribute it's wealth more fairly. I wondered this morning if Mr Blair thought about his weapons of mass destruction that weren't found in Iraq. My prayers are with the people of Manchester too but 1000s of innocent Muslims are murdered daily and it doesn't make the front page.

My thoughts and prayers are with the innocent victims in this tragedy.
I'm not sure that these atrocities have anything to do with bombing Muslim countries, this Islamic state seem to commit murder and savagery as much in Muslim countries as they do in the West.
They just seem to enjoy violence, how can you reason with that?

alright ed wee question not very clued up on this but I have just read that a London based investment firm who have shares in the likes of juventus and the WWE have upped there shares in Celtic, what does this actually mean? Does this provide more funds towards the club or just the shareholder who sold the shares? Cheers.

{Ed007's Note - Jamie's your man for this stuff but I don't see the club gaining any investment through it but whoever sold their shares will be getting a wedge.
Lindsell Train have been buying shares since 2011 and they see the Club as a good strong long term investment for their investors. They don't seem to take a hands on approach to any of their investments so we'll probably not hear much about them again - unless they get Wrestlemania at Celtic Park!!}

Agree2 0Disagree

22 May 2017 21:11:30
No bother ed cheers, just something I read and never really had much information on, it's good that we are seen as a strong long term investment though, the futures bright its green and white.

{Ed007's Note - Definitely.}

If anything it shows that someone with an objective view of the club thinks we are moving forward and that our value will most likely keep rising. Juventus are one of the top six clubs in Europe right now so they clearly know where to put their money.

Hi Wee,

At the time that Company started buying Celtic shares were circa 38p a share by the time NL took us to CL football they were worth circa 70p

Under RD tenure they stayed "steady-ish"

Today, if you were buying ONE share in our great club it would cost you exactly £1 (Some Scottish football clubs go for that btw)

So that company will already have done very well out of us and factoring in all things like people in charge of the club, forward moves, possible CL football, BR's new deal the overview will be that we are a "safe bet" mate (y)

{Ed007's Note - So if you 1 million bought shares in 2011 for £380,000 they're now worth £1 million? Surely that's seen in business circles as a great performance for shares in a Scottish club, Jamie?}

Agree0 0Disagree

23 May 2017 13:27:45
Without a doubt Ed, That's not even factoring in Dembele and KT's transfer "value's" which our manager fully accepts there comes a point " that it's beneficial to naturally part ways" but don't think KT's will be any time soon. But that these things "swell the coffers of a balance sheet"

A just think he is worth more than Lee Wallace pmsl (see sevco posts) (Y)

Factor in future HOTEL revenue etc it shapes up very well indeed (y)

{Ed007's Note - We really are starting to act like a big club. I've been saying for years we had the potential to do this if the board would just have taken a few risks over the years. We've listened to everyone talking down our game and people started believing it and were happy to take the scraps from the TV companies, sponsors or even the CL. Since I started doing this 6/7 years ago I've consistently said our minimum aim in the CL should be 3 spot and a run in the EL and with a bit of luck in the draw we should get a few Last 16 games as well. Maybe not next year - I'd love Last 16 - but maybe the year after I wouldn't mind us dropping down to the EL to see how far we could go in it.
We're leaving the rest of Scotland in our wake and have bigger fish to fry now, the gap between us and the rest of the Scottish teams is far greater, and built on far more solid foundations, than it ever was when Rangers dominated. We're banking serious money and investing it on improving the Club throughout whereas any big paydays they had went to servicing the debt cycle they were on.}

Agree2 0Disagree

23 May 2017 15:15:30
I totally agree in terms of the last 16 being our "upper - ceiling " Ed. It was really annoying for many we deviated away from the model we had

If we could achieve that with say at least four from within our own development squad that would be our greatest retention but again you are never ever going to stop someone from earning more elsewhere for ever

This hotel aspect should have been implemented years ago IMO (y)

{Ed007's Note - Lennon stayed on a year too long and then Lawwell took us down the cheap road.}

Big sutton having a dig at sly for there coverage of the trophy presentation which was embarrassing soon as trophy was lifted programme finished to go to a meaningless epl game glad a cancelled my contract few months ago.

Agree7 0Disagree

23 May 2017 07:58:43
i really hope bt go for the exclusive rights to our league, the coverage on sky has been shocking for yrs now, so glad i cancelled, even the emails and discounts they offer won't intice me, i save a few quid and i don't need to listen to david tanner, winner winner chicken dinner.

Agree0 0Disagree

23 May 2017 08:06:34
Also lads, why not do what i do, i have the bt package, you can use on 2 platforms, i give my mate one and he gives me a sky go account that u use on xbox or pc, if there's people on here with bt and no sky and vice versa, get some swapping done and save some dosh.

Agree0 0Disagree

Ed: just as a matter of interest, where are we " the Celtic page " in the grand scheme of Football rumours overall site, it looks as if we are one of the busiest pages going. ?


{Ed007's Note - No chance. The Liverpool and Man Utd sites are the busiest overall The TRIFC page is busier with all their multiple accounts and the Tims posting on it. No wonder they call us obsessed.}

22 May 2017 22:51:12
our page has the best sense of humour though, it reminds me of the characters i met through travelling the country on supporters buses and frequenting the old jungle and the cameraderie you used to get with other fans no matter where they came from you felt part of the one cause.
