I can't believe not one youngster is getting a chance, or Allan or Christie. I never see a team that I agree with. Is there not a right back in the under 20s who would benefit from playing today?

{Ed007's Note - I'm surprised Allan's not playing. This match against part-time lower level opponents would have been right up his street and a real test for him after all playing the likes of EK is where he made his name and caught John Pa.. I mean RD's eye.}

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 14:20:21
Afternoon Ed, I understand that by the looks of it we are playing a 4-4-2, but I'm questioning what Scotty Allan has to do to merit a start, even in a game of this kind? For me I wouldn't have Mulgrew, GMS or James Forest in my 11 today. I would much rather see Christie and Roberts involved today.

{Ed007's Note - RD has picked a team that he thinks will win what has become a very, very important game. He's went with experience to make sure that there is no slip ups. What would have happened if he had filled the team with youngsters and debutants and we had went 1-0 down?
If CFC comfortably win today's game will you be back on to say RD got his team spot on or will you say it's a game we should be winning anyway?}

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 14:52:56
I didn't say fill the whole team, I stated I would much rather see Christie and Roberts. That would make one debutant, correct me if I'm wrong. I never fully agree with an RD team selection but again that is a matter of opinion. Charlie Mulgrew is returning from injury on a 3G surface, surely that's more of a risk than Scott Allan playing alongside Scott Brown?

{Ed007's Note - Charlie Mulgrew's experience should see him cruise through this match. Scott Allan's experience would have seen him battling against players at the level he's used to playing against.}

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 15:02:50
No matter who the manager or what the starting line-up - it never pleases everyone. Good to see Gordon, Johansen, Bitton and Armstrong dropped and McGregor was obviously facing the axe, but I think Allen will get a run-out - as long as we put it to bed sharp.
If anything, I would have liked to see the young lad from Man City in the squad, just to have a wee look and it would have been an ideal introduction to the club.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 15:15:28
All a matter of opinion Ed. Is that you saying there isn't a difference between the standards of the Championship and the Lowland League?

{Ed007's Note - I don't know, I stopped watching lower league football when Accies got promoted. Can I ask how many games you've seen Scott Allan playing, I mean he's 24 and only played about 100 professional games? Is there any players you've watched in the lower leagues of Scotland this season that you think would improve our team?}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 15:40:56
So what your saying is you only watch Scotland's top league? How can you comment on the ability level within any league below this then? I think you might be going away from my point Ed, you mentioned experience not me. In Allans first 5 years as a professional he has played 88 games. Charlie Mulgrew didn't reach this figure until 2009, 7 years after turning professional in 2002 but I'll leave it for you to double check in case you don't believe me. As for players in the lower leagues, we did bring the Championships player of the year in over the summer and I personally feel he has greater ability than a number of the current crop.

{Ed007's Note - So how many times have you seen Scott Allan playing, it's a simple enough question? Has any other player in the lower leagues caught your eye that could improve our squad?
That feeling you have might be indigestion.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 15:55:21
Ed did Scott Allen come from the lower league
U've never mentioned it? Broken record pal.

{Ed007's Note - Who kicked your kennel? Nobody forces you to read the pages.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 16:00:07
Scott Allan play on numerous occasions, hence why I hold the views that I do. Obviously more than you have. I didn't comment on any other player from the lower leagues, I simply asked how you could hold a view without any prior watching. Again your going away from the point I actually made. Are you doubting the ability of players signed from teams of a lower league or position? What about Leigh Griffiths, Allans career has followed a very similar path. He now holds the record of quickest Celtic player to get to 50 goals.

{Ed007's Note - I'd compare him more to Paddy McCourt than LG and Scott Allan has shown me absolutely nothing in a CFC jersey to warrant a starting spot. He also showed how off the pace with top level football he was when he came on against Ajax and cost us a goal. What channel shows Hibs matches?}

Agree1 Disagree1

07 Feb 2016 16:28:51
I didn't compare them in terms of ability, I compared the situation as to how they came to our club. Your man Charlie Mulgrew was also very off the pace against Ajax from what I remember, another injury if I'm correct? Are you also telling me that all of this starting 11 today warrant a starting spot? The world of the Internet makes everything possible Ed surely you should know this, but due to a friend playing for Hibs my attendance at many games last season. 2-0 up as we speak with absolutely nothing offered going forward. We lack a spark linking our play going forward, I firmly believe Scott Allan can provide this.

{Ed007's Note - The game's certainly lit up since he came on. Dazzling stuff!}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 16:49:32
I see I have stumped you Ed. I'll let you off, better fight next time. Although I do feel since side ways Mulgrew was replaced with Allan we look to have had more purpose going forward, ball being moved quicker. We all know one man doesn't make a team though don't we.

Hail Hail Ed.

{Ed007's Note - You've not got me stumped mate.

"We lack a spark linking our play going forward, I firmly believe Scott Allan can provide this."

Did he, aye?
Better luck next time sweetheart, you should stick to watching lower league football. Let us know about any other undiscovered superstars at Morton or Dumbarton, cheers.}

Funnily enough that was probably Allan's worst game (! ) in a Celtic shirt - and that includes the Ajax game.

{Ed007's Note - Both your post was left for me to answer while I was out for my dinner but now I'm not going to waste any more time educating you - it's your loss. Remember and keep us up to date on the lower league superstars though.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 20:07:43
For someone who is always banging on about Europe, am I to assume you missed his game against Juventus?

Efe did fine today. He wasn't any great shakes, and yes we were playing EK but he was up and down the touchline all game. His pace and strength was too much for them in terms of his defensive duties. Yes his crossing was poor but he's not an attacking fullback. It wasn't any worse than Forrest or Allan's.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 21:01:48
Efe has made one or two or more mistakes in Europe that turned out very costly, but I have never seen him misplace so many passes or miscontrol the ball so often in one game.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 21:25:40
It's not even about today, no one I've even spoken to was surprised at the performance, - we don't expect anything better! I hate those plastic pitches, Efe though, like most of the team are simply average! It's almost as though there is an acceptance now, from fhe board, the manager, and the players that we've found our level! It's terrifying, because I've watched Celtic through the dark days, and we should be in a position of strength at the moment! It's shameful, and the blame has to start at the top, - it is/ was them that make all the decisions, and the kid wearing the Celtic strip in the street could feck it up any more!

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 21:31:05
Fair enough but that could be because of our opposition and his intent on trying some things he wouldn't normally. A few times he tried to unlock their defence with a single pass - a skillset I wouldn't normally associate with him. That said, they were all at it. LG continuously tried to take on 3,4,5 men and Scott Brown was pirouetting on the edge of their box.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 22:28:17
Wish Ronnie had been confident enough to start with Allan and Christie in midfield, (because they are the future) , but I think Ronnie is now frit, or afraid or whatever the word is,

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 22:16:45
Here ed was it not deila that signed Allan. if he really is as bad as you should we not be questioning deila?

{Ed007's Note - RD first spoke to Scott Allan on the phone the night before he signed.}

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 22:40:52
That is quite worrying. do u think, since ultimately he is the one being judged by fans, that deila will pleas his case and stand up to his superiors or has he already done so.?

{Ed007's Note - It's not his job to stand up to anyone, he's a coach and shouldn't get involved in things that don't concern him. What people struggle to grasp is that RD isn't a MON type of manager, very few of today's managers/coaches have total control over the footballing side of things. It's not the way modern clubs are ran, Arsene Wegner will be the last of them when he leaves Arsenal in the summer. Man Utd have the same problem we have, too many cooks all cooking different dishes, clubs like Chelsea, Man City, Spurs etc etc the list is long all have people who run that side of things. Liverpool use (or did use until Klopp came in, I'm not sure) a committee to decide transfer strategy, Roman Abramovich has some of the finest minds in football as advisers, advisers he listens to over ANY manager. AVB was sacked by Chelsea after a study of the footballing department found that his training methods weren't up to scratch, BOOM he was out the door.
It's the people above the manager/coach that make the club, Guardiola will go into Man City and everything is in place for a top club, the basics like diet and fitness won't need revamped at City.
Top clubs have the tools in place so that when they change manager/coach there is as little disruption to the club's continuing success. What you're seeing at CFC isn't a result of appointing RD as manager, it's a result of long term neglect to the footballing side. There isn't a manager in England, Spain or Germany that had to look at the player's diet and training regime etc. They had the right idea with Collins and Kennedy
Far too much emphasis was put on the NL chest thumping way of football management, and while it was good for a couple of years it was pretty dire in the bigger picture and there was no forward planning whatsoever, we consistently sold off our better players and replaced them with more and more contrived projects.
Everybody is blaming RD for not qualifying for the CL but the blame doesn't lie solely with him, we've seen what the good times were like under Lawwell and Park, their time has peaked and is now in decline because they dropped the ball keeping NL on and not having any long term plan except to make money and keep PL's bonuses up. The academy and youth set-up was neglected under NL and that's the biggest mistake PL has made, leaving JP to run the football side of things while NL was manager.}

But they were probably texting along time before that, and they were probably friends on facebook for ages.

{Ed007's Note - :=D

Agree0 Disagree0

08 Feb 2016 00:05:47
I just get the impression that all this diet and fitness thing is a red herring, to cover, excuse all. some of the diar perfomances that we have had to endure since Ronnie became manager, what does it say about the manager of a football team that his first piority is the diet, the first piority, should be maximum performance on the field, diet can be tweeked and changed and encouraged as the season progresses, fitness should be a given, for all Ronnies much vaunted fitness phylosophy, the team does not seem any fitter now than before he came, Lawwell are Park, are used as an excuse by the Ronnie disciples to cover his shortcomings.

{Ed007's Note - The point is it would never have been an issue at any other top club. The media fed the BS and all the sheep lapped it up. I didn't notice the same furore when Warburton came in and done the same as TRIFC.
The diet and fitness thing is just another stick for the RD haters to beat him with. It was only highlighted because of the previous regimes failure in that department, we had young players going out on loan that needed a full preseason in England because of their physical condition and general fitness.
What would you change in a footballer's diet as the season progresses?}

A Celtic player was arrested on Friday morning for drink driving. This is not good enough and is another reflection on the lack of direction and discipline at the club.

Believable1 Unbelievable1

07 Feb 2016 11:01:50
I have to agree, the whole club at the moment has become a complete brass neck! Without being all contrite, I have absolutely no sympathy when it comes to drink driving, if you don't mind killing yourself fine, but there's innocent kids and adults dying every day due to these selfish basterds! He was also done for speeding a few months ago. I know there aren't many Alex Ferguson's kicking around these days, but it's pure negativity at our club at the moment! I would just like the lot of them to leave, the club are a laughing stock from top to bottom, and at home to abroad! Lawwell, just go! The only things you've done in more than 10 years is bring in sponsors, and I know for a fact most of the work isn't done by you! You're a charlatan, you've not put a cent of your own money into the club. We've got guys like John Park and Carlton Cole at the club, we'd be as well throwing money out the fecking window! Over £1 million per year, truly incredible! Desmond needs to gut the place, or even pay top people to do it! Nobody cares that Lawwell is a supposed Celtic supporter, because there is nothing noble in anything he does! He's not even man enough to hire a manager with a big personality, a proper pedigree! Every fan in the stadium would prefer his salary going towards someone that can actually run the club!

Agree1 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 11:47:37
Obviously I don't condone drink driving, but I am more angry about him being out on the town taking selfies with fans twenty four hours after a game when his head should be hung in shame (along with the rest of them) . Following those two pathetic performances none of our players should be anywhere except training.

Agree0 Disagree0

07 Feb 2016 12:04:46
Didn't Lenny get rid of tomo for drink driving, and didn't he go down to Newcastle to tell not to come back, face to face but selfishly he wouldn't meet him, I have no doubt Lenny would have punished him big time.

Agree0 Disagree2

04 Feb 2016 14:59:09
Big believer in RD mate. I don't think any manager under our regime would be given a fair crack of the whip though. The transfer/ recruitment policy is flawed. Getting knocked out of the League Cup and losing last night isn't a call to sack our manager though. We're gradually becoming 'just an spfl side'. Losing to domeatic sides and European sides can only be expected. Look at our squad on paper. It's nowhere near CL level and not even EL level. I can only sympathise with RD, the whole team not turning up to big games, players shooting the entire team in the foot. I can look beyond that, hoping with the correct recruitment it can be solved, but when we sign players from teams below us, leagues below us, and the dregs of available players like CC and CKR, I don't know what people expect. Not turning up for big ties is a worry though.

Agree6 Disagree5

04 Feb 2016 15:14:22
I agree with all you say there Jim, but then I look at the last couple of games even given certain circumstances and I still see the same mistakes over and over again. Even given it's another new defensive partnership we keep making the same mistakes. The goals we lose are always the same. We can't defend set pieces or balls into the box. Our set pieces are woeful. Our passing is fantastic one week and then shocking the next. I really don't know where I am right now. I so hope you are right and we kick on. I'm so conflicted it's unbelievable. I do feel for Ronny and I'm realistic about where we are but we can't keep making the same mistakes.

Ronny is the manager! Regardless of what John Kennedy is doing with the defence it comes down to Deila! It's quite simple if he's watching Kennedy coach he can either agree with the instructions or join in and help! That's what managers do! We can't pass the ball - that's down to training, and the drills they are doing! If he is happy with the training why is he picking the same players, players who can't keep the ball for more than 30 seconds! People on here are raving away about super attacking football and high pressing, well you can't be going to the games because me and all my friends and family don't see it! We don't even nearly press high enough/ properly - you are supposed to be pretty much touching the player, and everyone is supposed to move at once/ in packs, we don't do either! We press until we are a couple of yards away which is pointless because the other team simply pass the ball or take a touch! If you want to see super attacking, fast and high pressing football you'll see it at Leicester! Ranieri has come in and did more in 3 months than Ronny has done, and it's pretty much Nigel Pearsons squad! Claudio Ranieri doesn't talk about it though, certainly not every day, he doesn't tell us all how fit they are, even although he could, and he could back it up, - he just gets on with it, and does it! I've said it before, there's a fine line between being realistic and and being a bit backward! Anyone happy with what's going on must be easily pleased!

The club are just becoming a laughing stock now! How anyone can be even remotely content with anything that's went on this season is truly bizarre! The team is weak, there is no aggression, no leaders. Not once since Ronny took charge have I come away saying Celtic looked much fitter than the other team, so that's a fallacy as well. We can't pass the ball, control a game! Aberdeen could have been up 4-0 last night - the lad Church missed from a couple of yards, and Rooney should have had a penalty! We need a new manager, someone with experience and a real pedigree! We need someone that will love the pressure, thrive on it, especially in Europe! That should be Lawwell's final act, then he should leave also! I can't think of anything positive he has done. The scouting has went from pretty good to appalling. He hasn't improved the youth set-up since he walked in the door, Tommy Burns had to beg, borrow and steal to get Lennoxtown, even then he was lied to! The coaches right through the club are like something you get amateur football! When we have needed a manager the best he could come up with is guys like Coyle, Mowbray, Lennon, Henrik, Keane, and Ronny who was supposed to be an assistant! It is truly incredible how some people can wing it for so long!

Agree2 Disagree0

04 Feb 2016 09:52:00
It's also a sad day, and another indictment of Lawwell that underneath Ronny, John Collins and John Kennedy we don't even have a Tommy Burns figure that could look after the club until a new appointment is made. I don't want Collins taking charge, even in the meantime because he came into the club with Ronny so should leave with him! Kennedy has been at the club, in different roles since he was a kid, and was actually promoted from his role with the development side to help out coaching the first team, so I'd be happy enough for him to move back to his old role, even although I think we need better youth coaches on top of that! Even if John Kennedy took the team for the East Kilbride, and Ross County at home games then went back to the development team! That would give us more than 2 weeks to make an appointment! The only criteria is quality, forget Irish, or Celtic minded or player with a history at the club! We need experience and/ or a real strong character! Someone who can sort the whole club out! It doesn't matter how much it costs! I'd prefer a top manager on a top salary to a couple of average signings in the summer. A good manager, a good youth policy, and good scouting all pay for themselves! It's quite ironic that the brains of Britain and Ireland on our board don't realise this! They're probably trying to pull of a coup at the moment by convincing Billy Davies to snub Kilmarnock for us!

Same old same old on this site everyone saying ckr isn't that good, give the guy a chance we got him on a free if I'm not mistaken and he has over 30 caps for turkey let's wait 6 months and judge him then if he is no good all we have lost is wages and a signing on fee which we would probes recup in selling him so it's a no lose imo, and let's be honest he can't be any worse than cifti can he?

@TAMC1888. CKR is another dud and a desperate sign of the chasm that develop between us and the rest of competitive European teams. He isn't free, what a ridiculous statement. He will be paid a 5 figure sum each week which drains our coffers for potentially 30 months .

Raging.

Thought it was pretty evident from the tone i wasn't being serious joeshmo. Stay away from fan pages? He'd be better of staying away from Glasgow.

I'm more than willing to give the boy a chance but I just don't understand why we singed Carlton Cole, these 2 are very similar and I can't see Cole playing much unless CKR is total crap.

We now have Griffith, Cole, CKR with Stokes, Cifti and Scepovic on Loan

6 Strikers! Can't speak about CKR but his goals to game ratio is very good. You have to wonder who is responsible for these signings.

Hey Tam he's played 37 times for Turkey and
Failed to score in 36 of them.

Tamc I agree with you on This one. When did anyone last watch CKR in a run of games that can confidently comment on how good or not he is? As u said he has over 30 caps for turkey who are a good international team and he was free so pretty low risk if u ask me. Or we could spend 1.5m on ciftci. chow many caps does he have for the same country? Not that I'm saying CKR is any good but for a free transfer it's less of a risk. Maybe that's the new signing policy!

{Ed007's Note - He's had two caps since 2011, Marty, 37 caps in 9 years. We're not getting one of Turkey's better players here mate, not by a long shot. This is probably worse than Steven Fletcher.}

Hmmm fair enough ed! Wasn't aware of that. I know you aren't expecting much from him with what you hve been saying, I haven't seen much of the guy at all so have no idea if he will do well or not. We can look at it two ways, club showing no ambition by signing free transfer or club being sensible by minimising risk from, previous strikers by getting a free transfer in! Hope the guy comes good as we were all wary when we signed lee griffiths so might be another?

{Ed007's Note - The only time I can remember hearing his name was for the wrong reasons. Why sign him 6 months after signing Ciftci and put Ciftci out on loan. We all know RD is meticulous in his planning so where are these bizarre short term deals coming from?
Without major investment in the squad during the summer I'm afraid the CL demanders are going to be very disappointed. Instead of losing deadwood we seem to be collecting more and more.}

Just glad aberdeen didn't get him or carlton Cole they would probably win the league if they did we seem to be the only team unable to set up right ie Ross county must have been a joy for there fans.

He played right back in most turkey games.

I am glad so many of our posters are welcoming Richards and encouraging and hopefully build his confidence . A confident player is so much better than a player down in his confidence .

Sorry but this was a dreadful signing. A crap scoring record, he will be even worse than Cifti : (
