We WILL get over the line. In my humble opinion NL is not the answer and we should be looking elsewhere. I have defended PL to the hilt and said he is running this club/ business extremely well. HE AND THE BOARD NEED TO SHOW THE SAME AMBITION THAT ATTRACTED THE RAT! Thanks Neil, for getting us out of a wee hole. He will get a job, no bother. WE NEED a class coach.

Agreed but who do we get? We got Rodgers because he is a Celtic fan who happened to be out of work. Who else at that level would come to the SPL?

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Apr 2019 08:30:04
We are not out of a hole yet, we could go into our last game against Hearts only 2 point in front because the way we are playing I don't see us winning away to Aberdeen or Sevco.
Lennon will become the man known for blowing the 10 IAR.

I am still very confident that It will be 8 in a row for Glasgow Celtic, unfortunately, Celtic have not scored the goals required against Livingston, and Hibs, Celtic had chances against Livi but did not take them, Against Hibs we also had chances, Some players taking shots on goal when they could pass to someone in a better goal scoring position, French Eddie, is still a inexperienced forward, but In my opinion I Would play Weah against Kilmarnock, and play Rogic in place of Ntcham, Hayes at left back instead of Izzy, and I would play Sinclair on the Left, as he always has the potential to get a goal, Hibs played well yesterday, and if Hearts had played half as good on Saturday they might have made more of a game of it, or are Hearts saving themselves for the 18th and the 25 of May when they play Celtic.

Goals are needed big time I’d take in 2 forwards in summer plus we will have griff and bayo eddy all ready for next season for me I’d take hooper back on 2 year contract as he’s free in the summer and also shankland as a prospect I think the boy could step up and score barrel loads.

I still can't understand why he didn't play Burk the game was calling out for a guy like that.

we Have never once taken advantage over our rivals this season. It’s been nothing short of lucky at times and that’s not good enough. We don’t scored enough goals. We’ve had a terrible season considering we should be 20+ points in front of our closest rivals by this point. We’re going backwards. Don’t act like everything is in the bag because it is not. There’s no fight in that squad and that’s the issue. We’ve got too many players that don’t want to finish games off. It’s terirble to watch right now.

Just look at the games since the winter break after we brought in Weah and Burke.
Before BR walked out we had played 9 games in the league and cup and scored 26.
Since Lennon came in we have played 9 games and only scored 12.
We haven't scored more than 2 goals in any game except the semi against the Sheep and have had Three 0-0 draws.
Lennon said he wouldn't change anything but that is total horse rubbish, the first thing he did was drop the boys on loan and the performances have went back to the way they were before the winter break, although until Lennon came in we had won EVERY home game.
I can't believe people are still coming out with the "in Lennon we trust" crap.

{Ed007's Note - He's changed our starting formation from 4-2-3-1 to 4-3-3 and only changed it yesterday when Rogic came on even though he could have pushed McGregor up with Brown & Ntcham playing the CDM and box-to-box roles in the 2.}

Agree0 0Disagree

21 Apr 2019 11:15:34

Celtic XI v Hibs: Bain; Lustig, Simunovic, Ajer, Izaguirre; Brown, Ntcham, McGregor; Forrest, Edouard, Hayes.

Subs: De Vries, Toljan, Sinclair, Rogic, Burke, Weah, Benkovic

Underwhelmed tbh.

He's got very little managerial experience not for me.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Apr 2019 13:21:51
I’d agree not experienced enough but after the news that we are looking interested in David Wagner and doing a wee bit of research I think this guy would be an excellent appointed and I really hope this happens identical style to klop fast attacking football and he did well with an average Huddersfield side small budget ideal manager if you ask me 🍀.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Apr 2019 15:18:14
I don’t think we are interested in Wagner mate I think you’ve just read my post from last week and taken it as gospel 😂.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Apr 2019 20:02:39
😂 Na didn’t see your post it’s all over the papers and social media so thought their might be something In it and considering he’s out a job definitely wouldn’t surprise me.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Apr 2019 22:03:56
Wagner on paper sounds like a great fit my concern would be on how he left Huddersfield seems like he needed a break from football if he can't handle the pressure at a club like that then would he survive in the madness that will come with being our boss and the added lunacy of the whole of Scotland trying to derail the 10 or am I mistaken did he leave Huddersfield for a different reason I'm sure you guys will know more than me.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Apr 2019 23:07:58
I believe it was mutual consent they were bottom of the league and they decided to part ways I don’t think it had anything to go with needing a break and I don’t think managing celtic would be hard for him he would manage the job I think, at the end of the day we will find out soon enough who it’s going to be but like I said I’ve heard celtic are interested in him there will be others too and time will tell.

Agree0 0Disagree

19 Apr 2019 14:05:51
I'm not so sure Chris the pressure that comes at Celtic from the expectation to win is intense enough at a normal time but these next two seasons are going to be amplified ten fold the quote I read from Huddersfield said it was mutual but had been initiated by Wagner who felt he needed a break from the rigours of football but as I said on paper he seems like a good fit for us other wise.

Agree0 0Disagree

20 Apr 2019 22:15:36
Wagner is no fit for Celtic. Managing Huddersfield he wasn't used to managing at team winning nearly every match . I don't think that pressure, the hatred of Celtic in the main stream Scottish media and the anti Celtic bias of referees and SFA would probably be too much for him, he certainly never came across anything like it in his Footbal Managing Career.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Apr 2019 09:52:50

If Lennon gets the job, surely he will have to bring in a number of back- room personnel as Rodgers took nearly everyone with him.

Is there any truth in us being interested in Graham Potter of Swansea?

{Ed007's Note - I think it's more a case of he's interested in us but according to some he is friendly with people involved at Celtic.}

Believable0 0Unbelievable

15 Apr 2019 20:24:43
Cheers ED.
I wasn't sure if it was just more SMSM paper talk.

{Ed007's Note - Potter's actually one of the better names that's been linked imo. He's a modern thinking manager/coach and I'd take him over the likes of a Moyes or Keane type. Read up on him, he's an interesting character, this is just from his Wiki page:

Potter has been recognised for his "progressive" and "unconventional" coaching methods. At Ostersund, he encouraged his players and staff to engage in community activities, such as performing in theatre and music productions designed to take them out of their comfort zone.

Potter describes his teams as "tactically flexible, attacking, [and] possession-based. At Ostersund, he deployed a flexible 3–5–2 formation centred on ball possession. Former Celtic and Barcelona player Henrik Larsson commented on Potter's pattern of play, stating he "played all different kinds of systems, starting off a match one way, and then halfway through they started playing a different system, and then they ended up with a third system. And all the players knew exactly what they were doing."

As a young coach, Potter studied the training methods of Roberto Martínez at Swansea and became inspired by his possession-based approach, along with the "holistic" training principles he observed during his travels to Spain.
Potter also cites the philosophy of Pep Guardiola and Raymond Verheijen’s periodisation model among his influences.

Marcelo Bielsa had this to say about him:

"He's English, he's a modern coach, he has new ideas, he brings new ideas. [Swansea is] a team that takes care of how they move the ball... in their style, the goalkeeper and defenders build from the back. And for me it’s the feature that you could underline from Swansea [under Potter]"

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2019 20:33:50
What do you think of potter ed? You think he would be good for Celtic or we too big for him?

{Ed007's Note - I think we would need a proper DOF type to work alongside Potter so that Pedro isn't running the footballing side again.}

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2019 21:14:05
If we decided to go down the dof route, who would you like to see in that role for us?

{Ed007's Note - Honestly I don't know. It's such a specialised job and the guys that do it are usually go unnoticed to the rank and file supporters like us. What about ex-Chelsea Technical Director Michael Emenalo who left Monaco a couple of months ago? It's never going to happen and would cost a fortune but how many of you guys have even heard of him - no offence btw I only know about these guys from doing the sites and talking to Ed001 and Ed002 etc.}

Agree1 0Disagree

15 Apr 2019 21:29:09
Ed I've heard a few time this season we want to go down the route of a DOF.
Did they not say Kennedy has been looked at for the role?

{Ed007's Note - A newspaper - I can't remember which one - ran the story not long after Rodgers left about Kennedy being promoted but I don't know how much truth there was in it.}

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2019 22:48:57
I remember him doing well with Ostersund, took the team from League 4 to the top division in consecutive season then got through the Europa League group and gave Arsenal a real fright in the last 32.
If Lawwell is looking for a guy to come in and maybe work on a smaller budget, he may be the guy although I don't know if they would pay the compensation that Swansea might ask for.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Apr 2019 09:10:58
I certainly think we need to look at a DoF. Particularly if we're going to go with Lennon as has been said PL will run the footballing side of things and he doesn't have a footballing brain. As Ed points out a lot are unknown to most of us and the more reputable figues, we'd have no chance. After a bit of digging what about Jordi Cruyff? Currently with Maccabi Tel Aviv, so shouldn't be out of reach. He helped transform Larnaca to be the first Cypriot side to qualify for the Europa. And then they did it again the following season. Now in Israel Maccabi Tel Aviv are the big boys again after a long period of not being. They've also enjoyed a credible go in Europe too. He seems to like teams playing attractive, more importantly winning football. He has attracted good managers and players and he must have a decent contacts list. Just a suggestion.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Apr 2019 11:20:54
Scrap that he's managing in China 😅 Feck it let's just give John Park a ring.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Apr 2019 15:44:50
Didn't Swansea give man City a real fright recently I didn't see the game but I heard a quote that Swansea played more like City than city did or something like that he sounds like the type of manager I would like someone who has the tactical knowledge to change things quickly when needed.
reflecting back to Valencia games you could see fairly early on in the first game we needed to change something but it took Rodgers till the second game to do it.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Apr 2019 16:20:30
He did well at Ostersunds, but rising to the celtic job would be meteoric by any standards. So he beat arsenal. One to watch for sure tho.

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Apr 2019 19:19:41
If he comes I hope he brings Daniel James with him.

Agree0 0Disagree

22 Apr 2019 15:14:37
With Potter at the helm Swansea are currently sitting 12th in the Championship 28 points adrift of leaders Norwich, as one of the teams relegated with the payoff that’s not exactly a roaring endorsement for him getting the Celtic job in my estimations .

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2019 07:40:18
Manchester United after moussa dembelle. Anyone know if we had a sell on clause in his deal?

Believable0 0Unbelievable

15 Apr 2019 11:10:44
According to The Herald when MD left the fee was £18m up front with further £2.5 m plus sell on clause (no mention of percentage) .

{Ed007's Note - The information the Club gave the Stcok Exchange was that we received a one off payment of 22 million Euros for Dembele and there's no mention of any sell-on clause:

md

Agree0 0Disagree

15 Apr 2019 17:22:42
Would they normally include sell %'s when informing the stock exchange of player sales?

Agree0 0Disagree

16 Apr 2019 07:27:34
I really hope we weren't silly enough to miss the boat on his future fees, surely we all knew would end up at a massive club. It wouldn't be like pedro to miss a trick.

Agree1 0Disagree

17 Apr 2019 22:43:46
If we haven't an add - on deal with Dembele, I think the reason is that Lyons offered something like €15m plus % of next transfer or €22m and no % add on .
We can't make other clubs doneverything we want.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Apr 2019 07:20:01
We can't but we can always say no Deal.

Agree0 0Disagree

18 Apr 2019 16:01:59
There wasn't any chance of saying "no deal" as Dembele was after Rodgers who was running for his life.

Martinez apparently out of running for manager? So his agent says.

Believable1 0Unbelievable

12 Apr 2019 10:53:51
Same was said about AVB but that’s been quashed and there is potential there. I doubt Martinez will come after the comments from his agent. But I wouldn’t rule out AVB. Was a shock when Brendan Rodgers came in let’s not forget about that. I hope we push the boat out again. Would be an absolute joke. Lawwell and the board need to set the standard required higher now and if they don’t do that they will fail again and we will be caught. Lawwells job is to make the investors money. After the increased investment in the club from that London firm I expect us to move forward with a better manager than Lennon.

Agree4 0Disagree

12 Apr 2019 12:18:05
The London mob bought their shares from other share holders so I don't think there was increased investment in the club from them.

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Apr 2019 12:36:34
I didn’t mean to come across as if they were investing more kev. My bad. I mean they will be expecting more from the club surely if they are wanting to be the main share holder? I may be wrong but that's the thoughts I had on it. Our stock has dropped recently has it not?

{Ed007's Note - Lindsell Train don't want to be the main shareholder. They're an investment company and have no intentions of getting involved in the running of Celtic, Juventus or the WWE.}

Agree0 0Disagree

12 Apr 2019 13:54:32
They said when they bought them that they think we have potential to make them a lot of money if we get our own broadcasting rights or move to a better league.

Unfortunatly unless Lennon totally arses up the semi and blows the league, The job is his.
We all know it, no point in even thinking or hoping someone else is going to get it.

11 Apr 2019 12:06:32
Guys was just going to post about next manager.
Rumours going about that Lawwell has already promised Lennon one year contract extension.
All these names being bandied about suits the board, as it looks like they are searching the continent, whereas Lennon is in the hot seat, and only Lennon can lose job if he screws up.

{Ed007's Note - It's not really "rumours going about" when it came from a filthy begging conman that charges you to post on his blog though is it?}

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Apr 2019 12:36:17
Haha u never miss ed 😂.

11 Apr 2019 15:16:08
ED007 what else is it then. I hear rumours from not just one site All of us hear different rumours every day. This cynical Tim thinks Lawwell will choose the CHEAPEST and less problematic person. A manager from abroad will cost more (even though money is there) and will want a decent transfer budget.
Lennon will probably cost half what Rodgers was on and Kennedy and Duff are already on wage bill, Lawwell will give Lennon SOME cash but not as much as say a Benitez would want.
OK ED007 give us your honest opinion do you think Lawwell and the board will spend big money on a european manager and give him a big budget?

{Ed007's Note - No I don't and I've never said I that I thought they would. There's rumours and then there's the sh1te the begging tramp writes - there is a reason he makes all this stuff up.... If it wasn't you that sent it in I would just have deleted it because of the source, it's like saying you read it in The Daily Star.}

Ed who would be your ideal candidate? Your possible candidate and your probably candidate.
For me
Klopp
Rafa
Lennon.

{Ed007's Note - My ideal candidate would be Marcelo Bielsa. I don't think there are any possible candidates to be honest, I think all this talk of someone like Benitez coming in is going to leave a lot of fans disappointed and as for Martinez, I put him in the same group as your Moyes or Roy Keane, it baffles me how he ever got the Belgium job. It will probably be Neil Lennon.}

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Apr 2019 19:40:08
You’ve been consistent with your preferred option, realistically other than the Clarke, Lenny, Moyes options do you reckon the board are looking at anyone else? Would anybody else want it, considering the state of the SPL?

{Ed007's Note - I'd say Clarke will have been sounded out but there's not even any murmurings from anyone credible that we've spoken to other candidates.}

Agree0 0Disagree

11 Apr 2019 20:16:56
I agree with the Martinez comments he must be good at smiling at the right people, Moyes/ keane/ fat Sam and pardrew all guys who have kept getting jobs but don't bring much excitement to hear that's thean to bring 10.

I was impressed when Rodgers came in but I think he needed us as much as we needed him and in truth he did achieve a lot and for that I'm thankful but he also made me fear the champs league anthem 😂😂

Does Lennon have it about him to keep the head and change the way we are playing to be better on the eye or is it results and 10 that matters?

Agree1 0Disagree

11 Apr 2019 21:49:39
Hi Ed, out of perverse curiosity, who is the filthy begging tramp? Means I can avoid his blog when I’m taking my customary daily12 minute toilet break at work 😂.
