Nae live chat today Ed? ☘️.


{Ed007's Note - Ed033's working on it mate, sorry.}

1.) 26 Nov 2017 14:38:59
Cheers Ed.

{Ed007's Note - (yes)

2.) 29 Nov 2017 08:32:15
Well ED I think that this game tonight will be the biggest challenge this year to our domestic run tight pitch nae DM though we have the Griff. How do u think BR will change it up I think it could be Two or three changes with this starting line up Gordon
Patrick R

{Ed007's Note - I'd be happy with that starting line-up, Rich.}

3.) 29 Nov 2017 12:55:17
I'd go with:


Gamboa Boyata Simunovic Tierney

Brown Ntcham

Roberts Rogic Sinclair

Brendan Rodgers seems to be echoing the thoughts of many of us that the financial gap between us and the PSGs and Barcelona's of this world isn't a good enough excuse for us not competing and getting closer to them. Despite all the talk about how good they are and they were excellent doesn't hide the fact that the other night was a total embarrassment that some of us seem to be accepting as inevitable due to a gap that can't be bridged.

But he seems to be suggesting a lack of ambition by the board with which I'd agree. In saying that Brendan has now criticised the fans, players and board but he could also maybe look a bit closer to home given that we've now suffered our two heaviest European defeats in our history under his leadership. ☘️.




31 Aug 2017 17:50:37
Looks like we're FAVOURITES to sign this ODDSON Ed? ☘️.


1.) 31 Aug 2017 18:22:33
ED001/ ED007 is it true that if this goes ahead we have option to buy the lad for £10m, seems a big price for Celtic to even think about offering.

{Ed007's Note - People are speculating that the fee would be 10 million Euros but really nobody knows for sure yet if there is an option to buy or how much it will be. It would make sense though as if the fans take to him it would ease their pain - and ire - when Dembele leaves next summer.}

2.) 31 Aug 2017 18:45:45
Very clever IMO, If Duverne arrived your looking at four young French boys all happily plying there trade, with time on there side they will not be in a major hurry to leave IMO.

3.) 31 Aug 2017 19:11:54
If Duverne came in and no first teamers left that would be a sensational window!

4.) 31 Aug 2017 19:50:27
Is duverne still a possibility?

{Ed007's Note - It doesn't look like it mate.}



03 Jul 2017 19:40:53
Southampton target Armstrong? Seriously hope not. ☘️.


1.) 03 Jul 2017 20:24:25
Theyve said vvd is not for sale and we should tell them the same we can't keep selling our best players.

2.) 03 Jul 2017 21:49:09
. and we definitely need to stop selling our players to a minion backwater club like Southampton. The only way they will see European action is on a clear day looking across the English Channel.

3.) 03 Jul 2017 22:16:14
They were in Europe last season WC.

4.) 03 Jul 2017 22:23:14
Wiltshire celt Southampton were in European action last season ya maniac! 😂😂😂 And I would hardly call them a backwater club, they've done well the past few years down there! Still confident Armstrong will sign a new deal soon, no need to panick! He's happy where he is with a manager who has taken his game to a new level!

5.) 04 Jul 2017 09:08:07
If Armstrong is as happy as some people suggest then please tell us why he hasn't signed a new contract yet? I'm pretty sure he'll have an agent to do his negotiations for him so I don't buy in to the focusing on matches just now talk. allhe has to do is turn up and sign once a deal is in place unless he fancies a crack elsewhere and he isn't going to sign an extension. I think Celtic should set a date to say sign or be sold as we can't afford players to leave for nothing.

6.) 04 Jul 2017 09:47:14
Maybe it just boils down to trust lads, Armstrong trusts the gaffer and vice versa that itll get sorted.

7.) 04 Jul 2017 11:28:53
I agree Jim If he's happy then sign, but u know it's never as simple as that mate. these things can drag on, and maybe it's the agent that's playing hard ball! The agents obviously seen the season he's just had and thought there's a better deal to be had. but your point about setting a date for him to sign is spot on. if he's no intention of signing before the transfer window shuts then we sell him and move on! He can't be allowed to get to January we're he's free to talk to other clubs and we possibly lose him for buttons!

8.) 04 Jul 2017 20:00:00
My point is that between 1984 and last year Southampton qualified for Europe once. They are as much as a backwater club as Sevco and I simply don't like the idea of selling on our players on to diddy teams.

9.) 05 Jul 2017 22:39:40
Armstrong has messed around long enough, ungrateful brat, if it hadn't been for the improvement made in him by Brendan Rodgers his agent would be talking to Championship teams or lower . Time to sign or leave the club.



21 May 2017 16:44:43
Ed-in your opinion is signing wee Paddy a possibility or a pipe dream? ☘️.


{Ed007's Note - It's definitely a possibility.}

1.) 21 May 2017 17:54:26
I would be absolutely delighted if we could. I heard his interview today on the radio on my way home and the interviewer asked him three times if he was staying. He answered "Who knows in football". He went on to thank the fans and sounded like he was choking a little. I took it as a farewell sort of thank you, but maybe the kid was just emotional at what he and his teammates had just achieved.

2.) 21 May 2017 21:03:04
I would like to thank the EDs for all their work on this site love it. We will b very lucky to get Paddy Roberts back he has been quality on and off the park for such a young man he sounds as if he loves it here he just loves playing football I just hope that he finds that here again next year HH.

{Ed007's Note - Thank you, Rich, you're very welcome.}

3.) 22 May 2017 09:59:54
Paddy would be our best signing from the king absolute class.

4.) 22 May 2017 18:39:54
Absolute must of a signing n be it 6_8 million he is well worth it n his value will only soar. Paddy Sinclair n Rogic/ armstrong in that attack 3 is just dynamite n the longer the chosen 3 (depends where Brendan plays Armstrong n rogics fitness but Armstrong is a first team pick be it in that 3 or as partner to Broony)
, The longer the play together they will just become deadlier n deadlier, always improving, always learning.
Brendan certainly won't be slacking or letting anyone else slack, trebles could be a regular thing the way our team is steam rollering every other team n we will just continue to improve n add more quality. Sure we may well sell a few here n there but we will bring in the same or similar type quality, certainly since pl let go of managerial duties Brendan has been allowed to bring in two top players in moussa n scotty, Gambia has been decent, kolos experience n form helped early on but i think he's been a good influence in the dressing room. Devries, not the best signing, however I'm sure that position will get another look as i feel we need better.
However fantastic first season for Brendan, he has done an outstanding job in all facets of the club n i can't wait to be celebrating that treble, as always with Celtic we win trophies and do our talking on the park.
Here we go 10 in a row.

Expecting a hard game tomorrow. Facts are facts. Ok the Huns Mark 2 have played 2 games more but they've only scored 1 goal less and are only 4 points behind. While the league is not in doubt I think it shows while we remain domestically invincible after 67 games I think it shows we're not playing to the same level as we did last year. Sinclair, Dembelle and Armstrong have contributed very little of late and we've effectively seen the last of Paddy in a Celtic jersey with two of the biggest highlights recently being James Forests performances and Edourde up front. ☘️ Thank you.


1.) 09 Dec 2017 18:26:00
I'd like to see Edouard, Ntcham, Ajer and Rogic start tomorrow and hopefully some game time for Kouassi too. Would love to see Johnston involved again as we haven't seen him since the St Johnstone game the end of last season although i believe he's just back from injury so maybe too soon. We definitely need to freshen things up and give some players a much needed rest as some look a bit jaded at the moment.

2.) 10 Dec 2017 07:37:43
Agree Stan-Need to give these guys a run not only to gauge their ability to step up on a consistent basis but also put some of the others on their toes as a few were AWOL during the week.



06 Dec 2017 20:46:23
I thought Rodgers got it spot on yankin Sinclair and Posh Boy at half time. One thing I thought he got wrong was young French lad should have started after his hat trick at weekend. I would also have played Ajer and still think Boyata is Effes twin.


1.) 06 Dec 2017 20:59:08
Last game against Anderlecht, Boyata was arguably our best player and I am sure that coupled with the fact how poor Ajer was in hist last European appearance.

It is easy to say Ntcham should have played instead of Armstrong, after the match but Rodgers played the team who thought would get the result. Unfortunately, too many under performed and Anderlect played well.

2.) 06 Dec 2017 21:03:21
Anderlecht did indeed play well RAW and we didn't show up. ☘️.

3.) 06 Dec 2017 21:49:11
We seem to have a lot of players who are not playing as well as they were last season.
Dembele and Roberts have been very injury prone this year, whilst the likes of Armstrong, and Sinclair have been well below the levels we saw previously.
I'm hoping that this break in January might be what is needed to give the players a rest, and also to help some of the injuries to get cleared up.



01 Dec 2017 17:32:38
We angry Stevie the Motherwell Hun is showing all the attributes to succeed San Pedro as the next Tribute Act Manager. ☘️.


1.) 02 Dec 2017 09:11:08
east belfast all over the wee creep jfp. he'll be going on about flegs next.

2.) 02 Dec 2017 12:30:44
Sounds like a cheaper option than slug 2 for the tribute act - and he'll know aw the songs into the bargain.



30 Nov 2017 18:49:15
I thought Scott Brown spoke very very well tonight on TV commenting on players been hit with missiles at every away game but nothing done and general anger at our success. Mentioned (1) Motherwell free kick for the own goal wasn't one but nobody said anything and (2) yir man who gave away the penalty that wasn't in the final should have had a straight red st start of game for tackle on Dembelle. What go's around comes around he said. When asked if our players go down too easy Rodgers replied 'Did we not win the fair play award last year? ' I think despite coming from the North of Ireland he is now developing an understanding of the extent of anti-Celtic sentiment in Scotland. Well said our Manager and our Captain. ☘️.


1.) 30 Nov 2017 19:29:56
As you can guess from my username I've bee cynical about refereeing in the past.

The two points raised by JFP1888 are absolutely bang on the money. There is no way that anyone should be letting any of the jealous mob take the shine off of the march the Double Treble.

For what it's worth, both challenges on Sinclair and McGregor would have meritted freekicks on the halfway line, it's only Scottish football's typical leniency when the ball is in the box there's any conversation. Anyone who has played the game at even schoolboy level knows that. You lift your hands towards an opponent you're always in trouble.

2.) 30 Nov 2017 20:17:52
Having seen the highlights again the free kick that led to their goal and the penalty for ours are both pretty similar challenges. Both soft decisions but if you get the wrong side of the attacker and there's contact, whether it be minimal or not the ref will always blow for a foul as it is one of them challenges you shouldn't be making as the attacker will always get the benefit of the doubt. Seen fouls giving plenty of times but also seen worse not given. Ambrose on Sinclair and Hill on Griffiths to name but two.



29 Nov 2017 18:36:49
My laddie is getting married and the table names are Simpson, Craig and Gemmell, Murdoch, McNeill, Clark, Johnstone Wallace, Chalmers, Auld and Lennox. Thought that was class! ☘️.


1.) 29 Nov 2017 18:56:03
As always mate. My ex wife wanted to name our tables after Michael Jackson songs. Took me five more years to work out she was a proper nutter.

2.) 30 Nov 2017 12:02:23
Haha viking 👏👏.

Did we ever get to the bottom of whether Paddy didn't sign because he didn't want to or because Man City wouldn't let him go? ☘️.

Jackson Irvine, Tam Rogic and Skippy are not bad examples of what we could pick up from the Ozzie league.

Craig I do the Newcastle journey on business and my advice is park in Newcastle and get the train. Last year I think it cost me £32 return which was less than ma diesel would have been. Plus it takes under an hour and a compated to 2 1/ 2 hour drive plus the weather isn't great. Enjoy the game with the wee man Craig. God Bless! ☘️.

Not a green and white bone in his body and as far away as it gets from Broon, Lustig and KT in terms of having any affinity with the fans or love of the club. Punt him pronto! ☘️.
