Ed, do you think we have any chance of taking Vorm from Spurs?


{Ed007's Note - Not with Hugo Lloris being out injured.}

Oh aye, forgot about that. Rab Douglas it is then?

2.) 28 Jan 2018 18:27:33
I'm still waiting for the 'a trialist' name to reappear from the early 90's.

3.) 28 Jan 2018 19:02:21
I would have the holy golie back can still do a job and with begovic first choice i think he would jump at the chance.



07 Jan 2018 11:36:39
There's a beauty of a "report" on News Now about Southampton preparing 10 mill bid for Armstrong. You know, the Southampton who were (maybe) offering 3 mill for same player last Summer. That will take some topping unless the "Rodgers interested in Sturridge" stuff gains pace.


1.) 07 Jan 2018 15:58:29
What a gift. 2 weeks ago he came on as a sub against Dundee. And Sutton slated him. Sutton as we know tries to be controversial. But he nailed him. Armstrong is a waste of a wage. Since Dundee United he has never improved. If we can get ten bob and get him off the wage bill. Take it.

2.) 07 Jan 2018 16:29:01
Tumshy do I no anything about football never heard so much nonsense in my life Stuart Armstrong is great player and much improved
P. s are you drunk.

Wullie do you think that they are secretly paying posters to make stupid posts.

4.) 07 Jan 2018 18:15:25
Might be a bit touchy here Chris but hope that’s not about me, stupid rumour maybe but don’t think I’ve made a stupid post.

5.) 07 Jan 2018 18:26:46
Tumshie by name and Tumshie by nature. What a ridiculous post.

6.) 08 Jan 2018 15:54:33
Harsh on Armstrong. I'd personally be looking to move him on, but there have been spells where he's been absolutely fantastic for us.



23 Jun 2017 18:27:31
A lot of good noise about the Plasvic boy, anyone have anything more concrete than that?


1.) 23 Jun 2017 19:13:13
On the bench tonight.

2.) 24 Jun 2017 07:49:50
Not putting the boy plavsic down and I know I've went on about this before . but if we don't give our own boys a shot them what's the point of the acadamy/ youth set up . why pay train and develop them for 6-7 years and then not see if they can do a job . with our current squad we must be more than capable of giving 2 or 3 a start at home games against the majority of our opposition . some will flourish others will be shown to fall short of what's required
But until given that chance they're just being trained for other teams to pick up on the cheap. hopefully the unbeaten run held Brendan back from introducing more last term.

3.) 24 Jun 2017 10:15:28
If he can't get a start for the U21's, especially when they're chasing the game, then that's a bit of a worry.



19 Apr 2017 23:30:34
Celtic haven't beaten Rangers in a Scottish Cup semi since 1925? Good job we're not playing them then! There can be no hoodoo beyond the memory of last year and imo, the team that played RIFC last year no longer exists either. Our team this year needs to play out their socks and put the match to bed before any honest mistakes can have any bearing on the matter.

We are preparing for CL qualification and if we can't beat this bunch of mugs then we're in trouble. Need to make it the game of the season, really hoping we hit them a dillion. Full gutty!


1.) 20 Apr 2017 14:09:29
As long as we start Boyata, Roberts and Rogic we will be good, need to go back to the 4-2-3-1 formation.

{Ed007's Note - We played our best football when we played 4-2-3-1 earlier in the season and with Rogic back I don't see any reason why Rodgers won't revert to that so fingers crossed but I think you'll be disappointed come Sunday when Forrest will more than likely start.
Hopefully the players are fired up for this, if we turn up and play the way we know we can we will destroy them.
My team for Sunday would be:


But I think Rodgers will go with Forrest starting on the right and I don't even want to consider that he'll go with a 4-3-3.}

2.) 20 Apr 2017 17:19:52
Ed was lustig not injured or was he just rested.

{Ed007's Note - He missed training on Friday and as far as I know it was just a precaution that he didn't play at the weekend so I'm hoping he's fit for Sunday, Steph.}

3.) 20 Apr 2017 17:47:50
Yeah Ed that's the team I thought would start I was just hoping Roberts would get a start although it will be good to have him come on fresh for the last 30 minutes.

{Ed007's Note - If we can settle down and get our passing game flowing we'll have the chasing shadows tiring themselves out as the game goes on - that's the time to unleash Paddy and Griffiths.}

4.) 20 Apr 2017 19:21:55
ed i like that team. was a big boyata critic but erik doesn't fill nme with confidence these days whereas boyata seems to have come on toa game. tho id happily play the developments squad let's get real bhoys this is the worst hun team in my lietime (40 now : ( ) as the song gows . get intae them.

{Ed007's Note - Sviatchenko has lost his good form, over the last couple months he's looked nervous and slow to react at times. It's as if he's carrying a knock but I've not heard or seen anything about that and there's no reason to play him if he is with the squad we have.}

5.) 20 Apr 2017 19:50:55
Ed I'm with u on that lineup, but like u have a feeling Forrest will start.
Would prefer Roberts starting n i would rather get a great 60 minutes out of him at least than only 20 odd minutes to 30 at the end.
Players like him rogic n Sinclair always have that final ball, that beating of a man n goals in them and again for me wee james just isn't on a par with any of them.
Yes he has had a better season but too inconsistent n doesn't score n create enough regularly n how many games does he win us, Sinclair, dembele, rogic n Roberts all have that in their locker to turn a game or win us game n if Roberts doesn't sign permanently it's a position, along with goalkeeper that must be addressed.
Bring on the sevco anyway, always good to put the new club in their place.
Here we go 10 n a row.

{Ed007's Note - When people say Forrest has improved I just don't see it as he's still the same inconsistent player who struggles with his decision making. The only thing that's really improved is his his injury record and that will probably be down to him actually doing what the Club tell him for a change. He's a good SPFL player but beyond that he's nowhere near good enough.}

6.) 21 Apr 2017 07:36:21
Like that team ed but he'll prob go with forrest he maybe tracks back a bit better than paddy but paddy coming on for 30 mins is the ladt thkng sevco want to see.

7.) 21 Apr 2017 13:18:35
I think BR sees roberts as a impact sub tbh, so can see forrest starting, but like fellow posters would prefer to see roberts in from the start, if rogic is fit its got to be 4231.

8.) 21 Apr 2017 13:28:31
My only issue with your team Ed is that Lustig struggled with McKay's pace at Ibrox and ended up getting booked quite early and with Roberts not the most willing to track back, it could pose a problem when they attack.

{Ed007's Note - Lustig wasn't booked until the 65th minute but hopefully on Sunday Forrest will do his job and track back to help his fullback for a change.}

9.) 21 Apr 2017 15:24:03
Sorry Ed, maybe not that early but I can remember them taking heart from it and him struggling as he couldn't put the foot in after that. Forrest offers very little defensively but it's still probably more than Roberts. Attacking there's only one winner. Regardless we should have enough to do a job on them. Moussa needs a performance.

{Ed007's Note - The whole team owes us a performance after some of the recent lacklustre showings. I'm hoping Rogic coming back will give us a huge boost in the final third and with Sinclair consistently performing well even though he looks a bit jaded at times there should be plenty of chances for Dembele to put them to the sword.}

10.) 21 Apr 2017 21:55:59
Time for return to form, Roberts and Moose starting is a must but we'll see. One thing for sure, don't want Bitton anywhere near the pitch.

11.) 22 Apr 2017 01:20:47
I'll second that davie. With rogic and dembele fit a bit further up to hold the ball it let's Armstrong and brown do a bit more defensive work if needed. The back four that starts I want to see finish the game.

12.) 21 Apr 2017 23:28:19
I agree ed regards lustig and i don't get where Forrest is better at tracking back then Roberts, i think its the other way round n in going forward lustig n Roberts work better together for me anyway.
It's the 1 thing that puzzles me with Brendan in picking Forrest over Roberts, i just don't get it and most folk u speak to me would pick Roberts every time.
I back every player in a Celtic jersey but if we are to progress in Europe as well as dominate domestically we need to be strong in all positions, and Gordon n Forrest r the 2 i feel we need better quality. Roberts or a. n. other in a top keeper who actually instills confidence n pulls off the big saves at that higher level.
3 1 Celtic i reckon on Sunday, sevco goal no doubt an obligatory penalty by whichever mason is taking charge of his favourite new teams game.
Here we go 10 in a row.

13.) 22 Apr 2017 14:19:15
Roberts everyday for me, I do think there has been an improvement with JF but PR is streets ahead of him. Brown and Armstrong sitting deep MF tomorrow could end up running the show. Hoping for a great improvement on last few games.



01 Apr 2017 20:58:02
Any truth in MD and LG both being out of tommorow's game?

Ntcham's ball for third goal! Ooft what a pass.

And Dembele's too Davie!

The generals for the second.



09 Mar 2018 13:11:05
Really hoping that Moussa has read the headline about his "barren old firm run", you know the one that Bates is going to continue? What a game this would be for the big man to really return to form in-I know he's been getting better before anyone pipes up but a hat trick Hun-skelping would be a lovely way to put them back in their shoogly wee box.


1.) 09 Mar 2018 13:38:53
Norman got away with murder v Moussa at Celtic Park. Climbing all over and through him, remember the big man was not 100%, it will be different Sunday.

2.) 09 Mar 2018 13:45:40
3-1 Celtic, Dembele first goal. And the other two lol.

3.) 09 Mar 2018 20:55:59
Thumbs down lol.



24 Feb 2018 09:22:31
So is this potentially the most exciting weekend of the season? Where the new club can close the gap to 10 points and Aberdeen can show us that they are a real threat? Maybe? Is this the weekend where we lose the league, em I'm gonnae go out on a limb here and say that it probably isn't. Nothing to add about that game the other night but think that we're probably in a pretty safe position atm. Would really like to see a wounded Celtic go out and destroy Aberdeen tomorrow, as for the Jambos/ Tribute act match, I couldn't care less. Neither of them is anything like a threat to us.


1.) 24 Feb 2018 09:39:17
Sorry 6 points.

2.) 24 Feb 2018 09:53:13
Davie I don’t think we’ll lose the league but I don’t think it’s inevitable we’ll win it. I always think the goals for column tells a story particularly given I think we’d all agree Brendan is more adept at putting an attacking formation out rather than settling up a team to defend. Add to that we’ve lost a key part of our defence in Gordon and inherited a bomb scare in De Vries. Now to my point and before somebody tells me the league is won or lost on points I’m there with that one but facts are we’ve only scored ONE goal more than the Govanites who are also only 9 points behind. I don’t think you can conclude from that that the league is in the bag remarkable as that may be given both the current disparity between the clubs financially and considering the gap between both teams last year. PS: I’d play Scott Bain tomorrow before De Vries tomorrow.

3.) 24 Feb 2018 11:02:53
JFP I like you but the title is in the bag! We have lost two domestic games in 27 . We would need to lose three in Eleven! and then probably draw one

Then the other team would need to win ALL eleven, no other team in Scotland is that consistent . SIMPLES as a wee meerkat would say (Y)

4.) 24 Feb 2018 11:06:12
Totally agree on Bain tomorrow man and concede that it is not completely inevitable that we win the league. One caveat I’d put for their goal count would be the 5 gifts they got last week. I watched that game and Hamilton were a complete riot-the second goal making DDV look like De Gea in comparison but that shocking Hamilton still managed to put 2 past them. With PR and Griff hopefully back by the time we play them and Musonda finding his feet alongside MD hopefully starting to show even half his potential from last year, I’m expecting to see us move from strength to strength. In terms of whether points or goals are important, squads win leagues and our strength in depth is what has got us relatively unharmed through an injury crisis that would have sunk every other team in the land.

5.) 24 Feb 2018 11:45:37
J7 buddy as I said I don’t think we’ll lose it but we’re certainly doing our best to make it look possible. We should be out of site by now and have the rest of the season to play with nae goalie. He is pisher than the pishiest pish goalkeeper in the league. Plus unfortunate injuries. Plus a half a bus load of off form players. Plus Dembelle is aff running for Lent. Ah woe is me!



16 Feb 2018 08:14:51
Would like to see Sinclair kept out of team for weekend too.




16 Feb 2018 02:24:10
Immense tonight! Simply brilliant, Moose holding that ball up was unplayable at times (did everything but finish and I don't care about that) Ajer looking like Baresi, Calmac's tunning and wonderful finish. Brown looking world class. Very happy indeed.

I think the issue is that Lustig playing through injury was hardly the reliable figure that we all know and love before suspension so unless he has made a recovery Ralston may not have had to spend so much time on the bench after all. That said, I’m sure Brendan knows more about the options at his disposal than me. I know that I’d want Hendry in Centre of defence or right on a back 3 ahead of either Jozo or Dedryck atm.

Surely attacking and defending corners/ practicing set plays is a key aspect of preparing for any opposition? And in terms of not having time for improving that side of things-what about our winter break? Got to admit that since Griff got injured our dead ball options have taken a knock and Boyata was a great for a header on a corner but that aside, it would be good to see us making more of our corners in particular.

Aye, cheers for that Chris! He looks like he has put on a bit of timber, the operative word there being “looks” as it is my opinion and not put forward as fact. Unfounded and stupid comments? You keeping track then? The boy has form for bad lifestyle choices and looks like he’s put on weight. Don’t see how that is either unfounded or stupid.

Got to laugh about that, Musonda for me looks head and shoulders above anything we have in midfield and cannot be judged on yesterday. Give him til the end of the month and he’ll be first pick.

Got to agree with you, I thought first half was awful. Second better and Odsonne really lifted things (his miss was awful but hey) Early days for Compper but on basis of that performance he really can only get better. We seem to lack the aggression and drive that we had last season and in too many games this year we have looked rudderless, square balling and back passing. I don’t share your optimism about next week on basis of that first half today. We outclass Sevco from back to front but Ntcham probably cost more than that whole team this avo and they made us look pretty ordinary for first hour. Depending on what Celtic turns up next week we could struggle.
