A lot of talk regarding Gordon

Here is a question:
Gordon or Douglas?

Myself- Gordon

Island celt

1.) 26 Jan 2017 19:08:56
Douglas as in Rab Douglas?
I don't think that's even a debate.


2.) 26 Jan 2017 19:30:54
Douglas a bit old now at least Gordon has a year or two left?


3.) 26 Jan 2017 20:04:27
Not even debateable, Douglas was a horrible keeper


4.) 26 Jan 2017 20:16:25
Douglas was up there with Carl Muggleton. Cost us a UEFA Cup in my opinion. Not a big fan of Gordon but Douglas makes him look like Peter Schmeichel. Pity we didn't have Forster in nets against Porto.


5.) 26 Jan 2017 20:29:15
I'd take Ian Andrews purely for his Tennets Sixes performance ahead of Douglas


6.) 26 Jan 2017 21:48:37
Big rab was hopeless


7.) 26 Jan 2017 22:39:29
Douglas was good at the time. Gordon or de vries is more apt and it's Gordon every time.


8.) 26 Jan 2017 23:33:53
Lol!
I always felt big Rab was by far the weak link back in the day.
We have never been blessed with solid keepers until the holy goals and big fraz.

A great celt but I never rated packie either.

Everton and Man Utd agree a fee for schneiderlin (?)

Does this means James Mc is surplus to requirements?

Does the signing of the Ivory Coast lad mean we won't be interested in him?

Is James Mc a Brendan Rodgers target or was this all just speculation?

Island celt

1.) 11 Jan 2017 01:51:37
This town ain't big enough for the both of um


2.) 11 Jan 2017 08:50:31
In the recent past you wouldn't think rglen, but that's where we've been brain-washed. Brown, McCarthy, Armstrong and Eboue as our CM options, tasty, and why the hell not? 👍


3.) 11 Jan 2017 11:18:09
First time poster always reading site tho I agree Jim y not have brown eboue mc carthy Armstrong competition for places can only b a good thing


4.) 11 Jan 2017 20:05:40
Welcome LB. Whilst having ose 4 CMs would be an improvement, imo, it really isn't unrealistic.


5.) 12 Jan 2017 01:57:31
that reminds me of that sparks song lol.


6.) 12 Jan 2017 07:39:16
Cleverly to Watford is the deal that sees Scheiderlin take his squad place


 

 

08 Dec 2016 22:02:40
Have you heard anything regarding Pat Roberts and the possibility of him signing for us?

If we made an offer and city were happy do you reckon he would want to stay?

Island celt

1.) 08 Dec 2016 22:06:04
Would love to see it happen, would not have dreamed of it being a possibility when he signed but if he did, I reckon it would be a massive coup.


2.) 08 Dec 2016 22:35:58
I would imagine Paddy has six months to make B R determined to want to buy him .
The same six months will probably have Manchester City deciding if they want to bring him into their squad, or loaned to another club or loaned again to Celtic or even sold.


3.) 08 Dec 2016 23:48:09
Likewise, think he could be a real quality player after a few seasons under Brendan Rodgers guidance.


4.) 09 Dec 2016 00:20:20
It's panto season so that means the start of the rumours for January. Lookin forward to what skinnybhoy has got info on but if am honest what a really want for Christmas is the return of hoops88.


5.) 09 Dec 2016 07:55:21
After the last window think skinny bhoys still under the bed.


6.) 09 Dec 2016 10:12:32
Sadly I can't see PR being with us for the start of next season whether we want him or not.


7.) 09 Dec 2016 17:35:45
Roberts will end up at some mid table English team sadly IMO. can't see us paying whatever city would be looking for I would imagine at least 8-10 million.


8.) 10 Dec 2016 09:31:51
Don't think there's any chance at all of paddy staying with us! He's said himself that he wants to go back down, and even if he did want to stay we wouldn't pay the fee Man City would be looking for! And IMO he ain't worth 10 million plus! Good wee player but not at that price! And to be fair he's hardly had a sniff this season! Sinclair and Forrest are BR first picks. so for me as much as I like him I just don't think there's any chance he'll be in the hoops next season!


9.) 10 Dec 2016 21:46:12
PR won't be bought off celtic for 10 million as city haven't even paid the full 12 million to fulham so that ruled out. Whether if both parties agree to stay at celtic then i'm not sure what value would be.


10.) 12 Dec 2016 15:01:07
the way he was talking on tuesday night i think the boy wants to return to city and try to make a go of it there, its a shame as i'm a big fan of the man.


11.) 12 Dec 2016 17:50:32
City paid six million up front apparently. the rest was for appearances, league, C. L. Winning caps and trophies. the usual stuff.


 

 

20 May 2016 17:16:03
Finally ambition!

Welcome aboard Brenden.

Hail hail

Ps any chance you can lure Suarez as a back up to super Leigh?

Is the game on the telly today bhoys? If so what channel?

Island celt

{Ed007's Note - It's on Sly Spurts 2 mate.}


1.) 19 Mar 2017 19:40:51
Cheers ed
Streams were poor - paid the now tv voucher price
Wasn't the best value for money, but I'll take three points all day long.
I think BR will show faith and pick the same players until we're over the line, then I think a few changes are needed.
I'd like to see gamboa on the right for a change, griff in for a few, and. If Tam Rogic back pulling the strings- even if it's only for 67mins.
Get the title in the bag and start building for next year.
I was watching macgregor today, I like him although I think he lacks that final element of quality, I was hoping eboue would have that bit extra, time will tell.


 

 

16 Mar 2017 12:04:06
What would everyone's preference be?

Either:

Keep moussa next season and roberts returns to city

Sell moussa for £30 mill with Roberts signed on a permanent contract

I'd go for the second option.

Island celt

1.) 16 Mar 2017 12:31:49
Sell moussa for 50 million or more . send roberts back to city and buy a real quality right winger.


2.) 16 Mar 2017 13:42:06
Moussa for me.


3.) 16 Mar 2017 14:05:58
DRB: now before anyone shoots me down, here is my 2p.
Roberts is a good player, my problem with PR is that he is not a fast tuning with the ball as JF and he is just a bit lightweight atm. I know that Sinky on the left is a far better player than both, but I think we should be looking at a similar player as Sinky for the right side. PR has already stated that he wants to go back to City to try and get into the 1st team . On the second point I think we may wel get another season out of Moussa unless a really really good offer comes in, which would need to be done early doors of the transfer so we have time to get a replacement.


4.) 16 Mar 2017 14:33:39
There ain't a hope in hell moussa will get sold for 50 million! No chance! I like and rate wee paddy but I wouldn't pay the money City would want for him! If moussa goes for 25-30 million I'd invest it in another striker and a really top quality centre half! Think we're still lacking at the back, boyata isn't even close to being the answer and god knows what's happened to Erik! So another striker and centre half for me and if there's money left I'd buy another right winger to.


5.) 16 Mar 2017 14:43:32
or show some ambition and sign both.


6.) 16 Mar 2017 15:25:24
Keep Dembele all day long. Don't entertain any bids until they get crazy. He's still only 20. Scary how good he might get. He's contracted until 2020 and if he has another season like this season that should be extended. He's said he wants to stay here for years, Roberts wants to try his hand elsewhere.


7.) 16 Mar 2017 15:53:08
In previous years we have always accepted big bids for star players but perhaps the influence of BR could help us keep Dembele for at least another season while the return of Roberts could be addressed by CL profits and cash raised from the departure of guys like Ciftci, Ambrose, Allen, GMS, Commons and other surplus squad players.
The manager has only really used one transfer window so far and I am sure he must have a shopping list for PL.


8.) 16 Mar 2017 17:52:40
Keep Dembelle, go further in the champions league, sell Dembelle, same old, same old.


9.) 16 Mar 2017 19:45:21
Keep Dembele another year and hopefully he keeps performing and make the French squad for next year's world cup. The price then would be massive!


10.) 17 Mar 2017 10:44:27
We will keep Dembele if he wants to stay.
We will lose him if he wants to go, and the only bargaining point will be the fee we get. HH.


11.) 18 Mar 2017 16:39:41
To be fair I can't see him making the world cup squad for France next year. With Griezzmen (excuse the spelling) Lacazette, Giroud, Martial to name a few. Would anybody take a punt on Mcgeady for the RW.


 

 

13 Mar 2017 21:36:26
Well if we didn't know already when it comes to the semi we need to beat twelve men.

This means a few things:
Multiple Clear cut goals required
No rash challenges at the back
Hard tackles

We have had a warning this past weekend, all the Bull is coming out of ibrox today and the biased 'pundits'.

The semi can't come quick enough for me. We need a high tempo, high press.

Who would everyone start on the right wing: PR, Forrest or GMS?

Island celt

1.) 13 Mar 2017 22:42:42
Forrest all day. Roberts is a quality player, but doesn't track back enough, and GMS is just not in the same league as these two.


2.) 13 Mar 2017 22:46:15
GMS wouldn't put on the jersey again if it was up to me and after Paddy's showing yesterday, Forrest is the main man.


3.) 14 Mar 2017 09:27:22
Although Forrest would seem to be the only one with any kind of a future at Celtic - and is probably best equipped; there have been too many games where he has little or no effect and although he will always get the nod when fit, I think it's a position we could improve in the summer.


4.) 14 Mar 2017 16:39:42
I just don't get where people see forrest tracking back? he's too lazy to track back. When he does its a slight jog. Start of season infact about first 7/ 8 games he burst a gut. don't see it now. He needs replaced would love to have another sinclair on that wing.


 

 

12 Mar 2017 14:10:16
Off the boil today

For me Armstrong being subbed was the wrong move.
Eric was poor today as we're sunclair and moussa

Forrest brought more to the team than paddy today and I'm a massive PR fan

Gordon played well

Definite penalty and some shocking challengers. I was hoping eboue would come on to steady the ship and maybe dish a bit out, maybe in the semi.

On the positive we're still unbeaten and is sooner have a blip here than in the Scottish cup.

Island celt

1.) 12 Mar 2017 14:20:42
Couldn't agree more island. Armstrong off and groffiths on changed the game - and not in a good way. Maybe the hot was knackered or injured. Eboue was surely the man to bring on and shore it up.

PR was stinking (and I'm a fan) , Erik was rotten and never saw scotty or big moussa.

Really, really disappointed with that.


2.) 12 Mar 2017 15:13:01
Cmon lads think your being unfair with paddy. He never really had the time to settle into the game and he came on when they where pushing on to us. He never seen mich of the ball and that was down to how bad we were getting. Same with griffiths he couldn't get into it.


3.) 12 Mar 2017 15:18:16
I agree mate. The league is won we have not been beaten. Players will be gutted and much more up for the semi. Played poor and got punished. It could have been 5 3 today. And madden is a blue nose so we were lucky to finish with 11 men and not give away a penalty. 4 games away from a treble. HAIL HAIK.


4.) 12 Mar 2017 16:07:29
I like erik and boyata

but they seemed the wrong pairing today, maybe just nerves, but we weren't as solid as we have been.


 

 

12 Mar 2017 11:52:30
Enjoy the game the day bhoys. Play safe.

Real quality, young and I reckon he would come on wonders.

Fingers crossed

We shouldn't need favours against anyone especially them.
Too many players didn't turn up
Lucky for us it wasn't a defeat, and it wasnt the cup

It felt like a defeat because the bhoys have done brilliantly this season, concentration and focus will take us to a trble and next seasons champions league.

I hope this disappointment will fire is up for the cup.

A long shot for next year but how about 'Pedro at the chapel' to win?
I'd imagine the best chance of a pay out would be a a bookies who pays on five places.
