Looking for a bit of advice if anyone can help. I'll be in Glasgow tomorrow during the day and was wondering does anybody know if you can get a wristband for the kit unveiling tomorrow at the ground or did they have to be ordered before now? Cheers.


{Ed007's Note - Free wristbands are available from the shop from 9:00 am, Kev. I reckon there'll be queue there mate as a lot of schools are closed tomorrow for the local elections voting so best get a flask and piece made up and head off just now :)

1.) 03 May 2017 21:05:53
Right Ed. its not your summer hols your going in, a piece and a flask. oh wait it's Glasgows Green and White new football kit. , better take 2 flasks and a hamper,

{Ed007's Note - It wasn't a holiday but I remember going away for a day with my pal and his folks when I was 6 or 7 - Sitting on Barassie beach with one of those big windcheater things you stuck in the sand round us to keep the gale force wind off us, wearing an anorak, shorts and wellies and eating either cheese n onion or boiled egg pieces his mam had made - we could have done with a flask of soup that day!}

2.) 03 May 2017 21:34:50
Forgot about the schools! Might give it a miss, cheers Ed.

3.) 04 May 2017 12:09:56
ED007 getting nostalgic on his birthday, do you remember the famous Matt McGinn Jeely Piece Song
Oh ye cannae fling pieces out a twenty story flat
700 hungry weans will testify tae that
Be it buttter, cheese or jeely
Be the breid plain or pan
The odds of it reaching us ar ninety nine tae wan.

{Ed007's Note - Jeez oh Timbo, I'm only 43! I don't even know who Matt McGinn is.}

4.) 04 May 2017 13:40:29
A must know you ed007! Am fae hamilton. A turn 42 the mora lol n ma fb is full of birthday wishes to various people today 🙈🙈🙈.

{Ed007's Note - Did you go to Holy Cross?}

5.) 04 May 2017 13:43:46
Come on ED007 Matt McGinn fae the Calton one of Glasgow's best folk singers and a big TIM. Sadly died in 1977. Look up his songs on Youtube some serious, some comical.
He also wrote one song dedicated to our resident ex bear UJ

{Ed007's Note - I've heard a few of his songs over the years but I've never known who it was.}

6.) 04 May 2017 15:00:52
Aye right 43 what round the waist or stone , 😱.

{Ed007's Note - Both!}

7.) 04 May 2017 15:28:03
ED007 you have to re visit his songs, here is first 4 lines of song named above
He kept bees in the small town of EFFIN
And one day this EFFIN BEEKEEPER
Was stung by a big EFFIN BEE

Go on to youtube and enjoy a birthday treat from Matt McGinn instead of old Star Wars films lol.

{Ed007's Note -

8.) 04 May 2017 14:42:40
No mate went to ogilvie but everyone a grew up with went to holy cross . 3 of ma bhoys are there the now lol.

{Ed007's Note - Ah I see, or the kid-on Catholic school as it's other wise known ;) Do you know big McCully? I'm from Fairhill.....

9.) 04 May 2017 16:19:59
Cheers ED007 you have taken me down memory lane and made a happy man VERY OLD lol.

{Ed007's Note - I got some strange looks from the Mrs as it played. (yes)

10.) 04 May 2017 17:52:28
some good players have came out of holy cross over the years.

11.) 04 May 2017 18:30:48
Ano Bryan and wee Geordie well lol am fae laighstonehall lol.

{Ed007's Note - Wee Geordie is one of the nicest men you'll ever, salt of the earth that wee guy and a lovely family. You'll be an An Spiorad fan? Kev's the singer/guitarist with them.}



03 May 2017 13:55:28
Jack Aitchison scored again for the U17's, this time at the Euro Finals. He must be in BR's thoughts for getting some game time soon, especially in pre-season.




28 Apr 2017 10:14:21
Ed are you aware of any genuine interest in Adarabioyo from Man City? He's a very good young player but I wouldn't have him in the team ahead of any of our 3 main CB's, plus Ajer and O'Connell have still to return.


{Ed007's Note - Celtic are just one of a host of clubs who have shown interest in signing Tosin Adarabioyo but City are still clinging on hopeful that they can get him to sign a new deal. He wants to play regular football though and he's not going to get that at City.}

1.) 28 Apr 2017 13:55:50
Do you reckon he would improve us? I've seen a lot of mixed reviews from City fans. I'd love to see us bring in an experienced, established CB to partner Jozo.

{Ed007's Note - The City coaches seem to rate him but I've not seen much of him at all and I definitely wouldn't fancy going into CL games with him in the team. I'd be hoping for someone a bit more experienced but Adarabioyo could be a great signing if he was willing to bide his time.
I think it would be best if Ajer spent next season out on loan as for me he needs to be playing every week and he's not quite at the level to do that for us. As for O'Connell, his contract is up this summer and by the look of things it doesn't seem likely there will be an offer of a new one.}

2.) 28 Apr 2017 14:20:09
Cheers Ed 👍.

{Ed007's Note - You're welcome, Kev.}

3.) 28 Apr 2017 14:41:22
I watched Kerr and Wardrop on wednesday and they too looked very good and are the same age as Ajer and Adarabioyo, we aslo have MacCart and Kellacher to return in the summer. If we buy someone like St Juste that means we would have 7 players all 19-20 and you cannot play them all. Some would be disallusioned and leave it is a problem that needs careful handling as i think we should be produceing our own players where possible. They are cheaper and stay longer. Shame O'Connell did not work out liked the lad and his attitude hopes he does well whereever he goes.

4.) 28 Apr 2017 17:22:38
He could be a real coup if he wasn't after first team games. I'd want somebody with proven pedigree who walks in the side if we go for another CB. Do we have the pulling power to sign him and loan him out?

{Ed007's Note - I doubt it, there'll be plenty of clubs out there willing to offer the lad money and playing time.}

5.) 29 Apr 2017 01:18:53
I never though Ajer had the touch to be a top mf. He can score and can do a lot well. After killie the next loan has to be a good one at cb. Projects don't always make it. He has done well to be fair there with game time. Imo we are still lacking in cb with jozo looking first fit pick if I'm being harsh on lustig one year on in rb needs sorted.
The viking. loved his heart but he hasn't ever been the same since he lost every high ball against the dead that game a while ago. Not sure he has the guile to adapt to a "wee" cb style on a bigger stage. I say wee because I've met him in the flesh and was surprised. Looks like a normal guy. His agression levels dropped after that ger game dramatically and he hasn't had a run since.



30 Mar 2017 10:15:51
DR linking us with Marvin Johnson who used to play for Motherwell, now at Oxford. Apparently Man City and Leicester have had him watched too. A very strange one.


1.) 30 Mar 2017 14:44:48
thats stv got a hold of that story too now kev, it certainly is a strange one, i don't ever remember him being any great shakes, he was just a run of the mill journeyman player.

2.) 30 Mar 2017 15:29:40
At least it's not Marvin Andrews.

3.) 30 Mar 2017 19:56:54
or julie andrews.

4.) 31 Mar 2017 17:08:10
Man City? 😂 This is a day too early.



23 Mar 2017 21:53:57
Ed a lot of people, including yourself, have suggested Celtic could or should go for John McGinn in the summer. I've noticed that the social media rumours are gathering pace after BR praising him. Are you aware of any genuine interest from the club to make something happen?


{Ed007's Note - John Park had McGinn scouted and we were keeping an eye on him but I don't know what the new scouting regime will think of him. I'd imagine Lee Congerton will want to see him for himself before deciding if scouting him should continue.}

1.) 24 Mar 2017 14:57:04
Cheers. I like the look of him and a boy in work is really good mates with him and says he'll be leaving Hibs in the summer. BR has said he wants to be making an impact in Europe though and he's maybe not at that level.

{Ed007's Note - I said the same thing but he's more than capable of holding his own on the domestic front. I'd also try and get shot of Scott Allan as part of any deal.}

2.) 24 Mar 2017 22:35:52
he wants to move down south.

3.) 26 Mar 2017 13:24:16
How do you know that jamesbhoy67, because he's from Clydebank? Moving south didn't work well for his older brother, so a few more years up here would be better suited.

4.) 26 Mar 2017 14:15:50
my family has been friends with john's family going way back more than 70 years, john went to school with my son so its safe to say i've had a few conversations with him and his family about it, he's had his heart set on playing down south for years, his two brothers weren't as good as john.

i've said to him never mind england get yourself in the hoops, but i said the same thing to my friend kevin gallacher, and playing in england didn't do kevin any harm 53 international caps later.

5.) 27 Mar 2017 19:54:37
If Celtic come calling I'm pretty sure there's a good chance he'll end up in the hoops. Realistically who down south is going to target him? The only club mentioned in January was Sunderland and they'll be a championship club in the next few weeks! If he'd prefer to play in the Championship over coming to Celtic I'd be very surprised. Big Celtic supporting family will guide him.

6.) 27 Mar 2017 21:24:23
he's never had an offer from celtic.

7.) 27 Mar 2017 21:39:06
That's why I said "if" Celtic come calling! Never suggested they've made him an offer.

8.) 27 Mar 2017 23:57:10
Unless Sunderland offer him double the wages Celtic do ice man.

9.) 27 Mar 2017 23:13:53
between you and me mate i don't think he thinks he would get a game at celtic.

10.) 28 Mar 2017 11:02:58
If money is the motivation then fair enough can't argue with the kid wanting a slice of the English riches!

11.) 28 Mar 2017 11:13:34
Don't really see the fuss with him.
Is he really any better than what we have already?

12.) 28 Mar 2017 18:34:44
as i said kev i know the boy doesn't think he's good enough to get a game for celtic, i think rodgers will be targeting a higher class of player for the champions league next season.

13.) 29 Mar 2017 12:07:41
Did we not say the same about McCarthy etc?

14.) 29 Mar 2017 16:44:41
A lot of people are still saying that about mccarthy island. Not me by the way.

15.) 30 Mar 2017 14:37:40
celtic's offer to everton for mccarthy is still on the table.

With it looking increasingly likely that Neil lennon will be getting the old band back together at Hibs, they could be in a really strong position to finish 2nd next season. If not I'd be hugely confident of them taking points off of our "title rivals" in Aberdeen and Rangers.


1.) 16 May 2017 15:11:29
In Lennon they have the best manager in the league outwith us, and if they sign Ambrose the best defender apart from ours. I think they will have a really strong season and finish top 4, and while I don't see us racking up as many points as we have this season we could win the league by more points as they will take more points of our "challengers" than hamilton or Caley or whoever ends up going down. In Lenny we trust.

{Ed007's Note - Next season's top 3 for me will be Celtic, Aberdeen and Hibs, with Hearts, TRIFC, St Johnstone and probably Dundee Utd fighting over the rest of the top 6 places.
I'll be gutted if Accies go down, they need to stay up and get wee Zico in as manager. My mate's just been promoted to their Head of Recruitment as well :(

2.) 16 May 2017 15:41:03
I like Hamilton for the way the club is run, it's an example to other teams. For me I always hope Killie go down, I just don't like them and they are always hanging on and offer nothing to the league. If Cathro gets his finger out then Hearts have the squad to finish third, but that's a big if. Lennon knows the game here inside out and that gives Hibs a huge advantage over Hearts and the Rangers.

{Ed007's Note - I would LOVE to see Kilmarnock go down and stay down. I'd also like to see Motherwell go down but Accies need the Lanarkshire Derby for the gate receipts alone so that's a bit of a tough one.}

3.) 16 May 2017 18:10:55
Ed would love it if your premier league prediction is correct with Hibs, Aberdeen and Hearts finishing above Rangers. Would love it. Timmaloy what odds would we get on that forecast?

{Ed007's Note - I didn't mean Hearts would finish above TRIFC, that must have been a Freudian slip lol But as IsleOGreen says above, Neil Lennon knows the Scottish game inside out and that will show through as the season goes on. He knows what it takes to win this league so if he doesn't finish above TRIFC it'll be a disappointment for Hibs, especially if TRIFC need to change manager around Christmas - if he lasts that long.}



07 May 2017 00:37:15
Excellent show of solidarity by the fans towards Scott Sinclair today after the game, a real touch of class. I only hope this is remembered by the few idiots who like to boo a certain opposition player for reporting racial abuse by one of our players.


1.) 07 May 2017 08:57:53
Hail Hail.

2.) 07 May 2017 10:18:54
Loved that video yesterday. Whoever came up wae that song is a genius.

3.) 07 May 2017 11:17:32
Did they change the lyrics to the Scott Sinclair song Stephbhoy?

4.) 07 May 2017 17:43:30
A just mean his song in general, we should have a song of the year, he'd win that too.

5.) 08 May 2017 00:05:15
Aww ok, totally agree. Best chant for a long time!



27 Apr 2017 22:07:35
The Barclay's Premier League, not quite living up to the self-acclaimed title of "best league in the world" tonight. That game tonight could have cured insomnia! Compare that to El Classico the other night and they're worlds apart in terms of quality and entertainment.


1.) 27 Apr 2017 22:23:10
they are going mental at the SFA in my work tonight it is so funny watching their veins popping out on their foreheads. When will it sink in it was the decision of an independent appeals commitee that overturned the red card not the SFA they were there to argue it was a straight red.

{Ed007's Note -

2.) 27 Apr 2017 22:38:14
Couldn't agree more Kev - it was atrocious. One of the worst games I have ever seen. And between, supposedly, two of the top teams in their league!

3.) 28 Apr 2017 09:54:32
All the hype and build up about the Manchester Derby and how it would be exciting as both teams battle for a top four spot. Look at the money on the park. bloody awful game.

4.) 28 Apr 2017 12:42:43
And bravo getting stretchered off with a calf strain whits that awe aboot and man u would get football stopped really negative garbage game.

5.) 28 Apr 2017 19:47:53
I think even Martin Tyler realised what dross that was the arse is about to fall out that league as people are complaining more and more about the quality of football doesn't sound like much but after Saturday at least 10 people in my work and cancelling sky sports prob more around the country add to that to the folk that are streaming I think the will see fewer subscribers next season.



25 Apr 2017 09:52:40
Fingers crossed Moussa has a chance of being back before the final. When should we expect some info from the club?


1.) 25 Apr 2017 13:11:50
Waiting on the results of a scan supposedly Kev. It'll be a stretch for him to be back fully fit if it's a pulled hamstring though.

2.) 25 Apr 2017 14:01:01
We've enough goals in our team as is for the final.
The moose should not be risked if there is any doubt on his condition in preparation for the CL qualifiers.

3.) 25 Apr 2017 15:01:05
You're right IC, but I'd be a lot more comfortable with him fit. Hopefully this time at least Griff will be available.

4.) 25 Apr 2017 15:03:29
I agree Island Celt, wouldn't risk him if it's anything remotely serious.

5.) 25 Apr 2017 21:25:42
Griff more than capable to sink the sheeps.



23 Apr 2017 19:19:11
With regards to Scott Brown's appeal. After Halliday's tackle today he shouldn't be worried at all of winning it but if he doesn't are there timing issues that would allow him to play on Saturday? If not I'd like to see McGregor and Armstrong play central with Rogic further ahead but BR would probably go with Bitton.


1.) 24 Apr 2017 09:08:20
Surely all SB has to do in his appeal is whip his phone out and show them the Halliday challenge. It's about as identical as you can get. I have no real complaints about Brown being shown a red, as it could have went either way. What I have a problem with is the inconsistencies, in the space of a week!

Are they not talking about big bucks for Duverne Ed? Especially if Southampton lose VVD. On the LG incident, BR handled it well: never reacted in front of the cameras, put on the wee togetherness bit and then will have had a more serious word with him behind closed doors and a fine to follow. No need for it to be blown up into anything bigger, everybody moves on.


{Ed007's Note - I've no idea about how much Lens want, I just know Celtic will be watching him tomorrow night.}

@Honest_Mistake, I'd take 4 seasons of Dembele up front ahead of £30M all day long. We focus too much on how much money we can get for players instead of enjoying the players while they're here.

Sorry Ed, just getting round to reading your reply. I mentioned Aitchison just in terms if Solanke potentially not settling and not hitting the form everyone would hope, in which case I wouldn't be keen to lose a 40-goal striker unless we knew Solanke had settled well and was an able replacement.


{Ed007's Note - But that's the exact situation we ended up in this season when Dembele and Griffiths were out. I'm not saying I want LG sold but if we're targeting someone like Solanke it doesn't say much for Rodgers' thoughts on him and I can't see him being happy not even making the bench, not many strikers of LG's quality would be.}

12 May 2017 15:53:14
I don't think I'd be happy with Moussa, Solanke and Aitchison tbh Ed. LG comes with a guarantee of goals and if Solanke was to come and not settle or not hit some good form then I wouldn't like to see us relying on a 17 year old rookie to win us vital games if anything happened to Moose.


{Ed007's Note - It would be Solanke that would come in if Dembele got injured.}

JimTim I don't think City are the type of club to entertain daft bids tbh. The amount of money they splash, they won't be keen on humming and hawing over a million quid or so. Give them something serious and see what they say.

I think I read that one of them winning would put us into Pot 3 if we make the groups but not sure about qualifiers.
