Rogic signs three year deal. Knew he wouldn't leave. Armstrong won't either.

1.) 02 Apr 2018 22:02:10
Sorry about this, it’s a wind up by some wag on Twitter.

2.) 03 Apr 2018 09:13:19
I doubt if we will secure both of them to be honest. Big Rogic will see out his time, unless he has a storming world cup, and move on he's an Aussie that's what they do. Check any bar in Covent Garden! Seriously i don't expect him to sign an extension.

Armstrong. Bright boy who might just feel the need for a new challenge, the law studies might actually help us here, but i think he would be very selective if he were to leave.

Having said that never discount the BR factor. There seems to be a real strong bond through this team right now so 1-2 big signings might sway it for them both.

3.) 04 Apr 2018 00:06:47
Rogic is certain to sign an extension, if he doesn't get a better offer elsewhere .
If a better offer comes in he will probably go.



27 Jan 2018 10:43:50
It seems that young Mousunda is coming for 18 months. If the latest reports are to be believed. I usually take these things with a pinch of crystal meth, but, I think this could be a runner.

This is the type of quality I think will lift us. I hope it's true.

1.) 27 Jan 2018 11:07:03
Think that will be the end off rgic, he'll b away in summer then tat gives us a year to find a replacement for musanda.

2.) 27 Jan 2018 11:16:00
Rogic is class and if anybody is leaving it will be Mcgreggir who isn't good enough to be in a team that holds it's own in Europe. Rogers is twice the player and it amazes me people talk about him leaving.

The one thing that could swing it that way is he us more likely to attract a bid than Callumn.

I hope Rogic stays.

3.) 27 Jan 2018 11:30:53
Not seen much of Mousonda But when came on for Chelsea the other week against Birghton he did look the part. Not normally a fan of loan deals but if it is 18 months then def a good signing. HH.

4.) 27 Jan 2018 11:44:43
Rogic is a far better player than McGregor, but unfortunately he's made out of Weetabix.

5.) 27 Jan 2018 11:53:18
Just need to dry him out on a bowl and he turns into the hardest substance known to humankind.

6.) 27 Jan 2018 12:36:48
Rogic has undoubted talent and ability, but has been injured far too often and misses far too much football.
Not only is he injury-prone, but his recovery time is far too long and as much as I rate him, we can't rely on him being fit and avail.
McGregor is only playing because Armstrong, Rogic and Roberts are not available and he has been very disappointing for weeks, although on his game he can contribute with a goal or two.

7.) 27 Jan 2018 12:49:26
See this rubbish McGregor is only play because other players are injured it's nonsense.
McGregor has played and scored at every level for Celtic.
Every team needs a player like McGregor. A utility man that will make sacrifices and play anywhere the team needs him to.
Always under rated by fans but loved by manager's.
He's not long ago been handed a four year contracted.
Yes rogic in a very good player but he is no use to us sitting in the stand. His time at Celtic must be running out.

8.) 27 Jan 2018 19:27:21
He’s made of weetabix 😂😂😂 brilliant! as good as Rogic is he needs to be fit to be of benefit to the team. What was abundantly clear is that McGregor is not the answer to AM position he’s neat and tidy but even he looks jaded. squad has stayed the same for years urgently needs freshened up so many players out injured the squad at present is winning games but barely and lack confidence to take the chances and really finish teams off!



26 Jan 2018 13:14:43
I see Rogers is talking about the absolute need to strengthen now in the Evening Times.

Get ready for a bit of activity lads.

Not long now. And not projects. Quality.

I hope for three, but will be happy with two.

1.) 26 Jan 2018 16:46:35
We can all talk about it MP.

2.) 27 Jan 2018 10:59:56
I hear you Jim, but, I absolutely believe we will do it. In fact, I'm not one for increasing bookies take gone pay, as every gambler is, but I would bet good money this will happen.

Don't get me wrong I have put a deposit down in a padded cell just in case we don't, but, it will happen mate.



05 Jan 2018 13:46:41
I'm hearing from a very unreliable source that Kim Sung Yuen is coming back to us from Swansea.

1.) 05 Jan 2018 14:37:41
Was it rogers who bought him at Swansea?

2.) 05 Jan 2018 15:18:08
No it was Michael Laudrup that bought him, although there were rumours Liverpool were looking at him too.

3.) 05 Jan 2018 15:35:23
Is that Ki Sung-Yuens sister.

4.) 06 Jan 2018 08:58:54
I read that article too. Wasn't any link other than he wants to leave and used to play for us. nowhere did it say that we were interested in him.

5.) 06 Jan 2018 10:14:46
My source was very unreliable indeed it would seem.

I never believed it anyway. The again I never believe any rumour regarding us.

Safer that way. :)

Hearing the Cape Town team have announced the sale of the CB to us.

I read the comment by the bellend that is Jim White, regarding Brendan going to Arsenal.

I can't see Arsenal going for him. This season we have stalled and not until he puts together a team that isn't continually getting embarrassed in Europe will the big clubs even consider him.

Brendan is in the same boat as his players who have an eye on a move to a big English club. They all need to up their game.

If he finally addresses the continually piss poor defence and improves in the CL then maybe a year from now. The summer will be his fifth window and he must address the glaring inadequacies in defence or a move to a bigger league club is a non starter.

I hope he finally deals with it, because his failure to address it so far isn't good enough for us, never mind a top English team.

Hopefully Commpare will shore us up but still leaves Lustig who has been woeful and a keeper who provides absolutely zero confidence.

A lot of vital work for Rogers to get done and until he does, he's going nowhere, regardless of what White or anybody else says.

Winning the treble up here means nothing to the English. He has been talking about us kicking on and playing well in the run in. If we lose to the huns, even at their midden, will show clearly how much we have stalled against a team without a pot to piss in with a team of loanees.

I think we should gub them, but they know our defence is totally rubbish and that failure to fix it gives them hope they should never have had.

A defeat to them is totally unacceptable and if it happens is Rogers fault. He needs to find a way to keep weans out of our close and he needs to do that now. Apart from KT and Brown no one has stepped up. Until now. Against the huns is their chance to show they are superior. Failure is not an option against a pish team of loan players.

1.) 28 Feb 2018 11:46:24
Allan McGregor is out of contract in the summer, he is getting on but still a good goalie.

2.) 28 Feb 2018 12:11:05
Huns at my work are going on about how bad ddv is and he's a weak link couldn't even put up an argument.

3.) 28 Feb 2018 12:45:01
Wait until 1 Of his pin point passes starts an attack for us and helps Dembele net his hat trick you can gloat then as there defence is almost as shambolic as ours RUSSEL MARTIN! Finished.

4.) 28 Feb 2018 12:50:57
white only wanting to get publicity and raise his profile. Personally i think BR is highly rated down south and any team would jump at a chance to get him, Celtic as we know is a great club / fans / win cups, cl / el, manager on good wages, but this is not enough for some of them, previous history 4 or 5 years is the Celtic managers limit, they opt for teams like Bolton / Aston villa or some other.

does winning cups and medals become a bore, the spending power in the spl/ Celtic is a major obstacle and Celtic still holding on to the biscuit tin is evident, big (If ) Rodger's fails before the 10 he will leave, if big club makes a move he will leave.

Playing at Anfield / emirates/ Old Trafford, or plastic pitch's and fields. The tic in the summer will go through a transition if BR still here, some of R. Delia squad need replacing. not worried about the run in results we have this in the bag 3 games in front. H. H. Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me, and I may not remember. Involve me, and I’ll understand.

5.) 28 Feb 2018 13:21:41
He’s an excellent coach and he’s proven every club he’s been at ypf he will be here in the summer and beyond he's here for a few more seasons yet he’s happy he’s at the club he supports and he gets everything he asks for from DD.

6.) 28 Feb 2018 14:37:44
@Campsie Bhoy I hope so, but we know from experience, circumstances change. hh.

7.) 28 Feb 2018 17:23:11
Brendan will be here for 10 in a row to go down in the history books then he will probably move on.



16 Feb 2018 11:38:03
Well, my idea to have a large malt halfway through the first half ended up being six, as I watched the whole game again. I went to my kip about 2am and nearly got battered as I woke up my beloved.

Surprisingly she didn't share my enthusiasm for my team and let me know in no uncertain terms. It was touch and go wether I was heading back to the sofa, when I say heading I of course mean limping and trying to stem a bloodied snib.

I am in possession of a malt whiskey head that feels like there's a badger in there trying to escape.

I checked my texts to see if my big hun pal got back to me. I enquired how much he lost at the bookies. Strangely he hasn't replied so as you can imagine it must be at least £100. Poor deluded cant.

Anyway, head bursting aside, I'm still buzzing about how our young team stood up and played.

I also took a wee trip into SWALLOW SWALLOW last night, and by feck are they spewing. I haven't laughed so much in ages. Zenit are shit, we are shit, Zenit had a break, Zenit are rubbish and so in and so forth.

Total shower of deluded barstewards.

I can't wait until we visit their delapidated stadium and tear them a new one.

Next Thursday if we again okay with no fear I am convinced we will score. Even if it goes against us as long as we get stuck in I will be proud of them. Mancini was feckin shellshocked, something he had in common with Huns everywhere.

I'm actually enjoying my erupting skull, as it reminds me why I have it.

It will take a long time for me to lose that feeling, not as long as it will take to get out of the doghouse with my mrs but a long time.

She said after I woke her up, I attempted to tell her about the game. For some reason she wasn't that interested and had to resort to threats of extreme violence to shut me up.

Some people just don't get it.

This is the confidence boost our team needed. And all of us for that matter.


1.) 16 Feb 2018 12:55:56
You were drinking last night? We wouldn’tve guessed 🤣.

2.) 16 Feb 2018 13:08:05
I know, I hide it well. It tasted great and it was a case of, just one more. That happened five times and I pour a real hauf.

Paying the price today but no regrets.

{Ed007's Note - I noted (and I was shocked/scared that) you were surprisingly positive and jovial last night, MP. May I suggest you drink more often.... ;)

3.) 16 Feb 2018 19:51:12
I am
A naturally jovial type. Thought by many to be decent company. When I was online I hadn’t started to drink, so you can imagine the quality of my patter when I was three sheets.

Fecking hilarious, talking to masel mind. The mrs was in the room watching a film. She didn’t know what she was missing.

I’m sitting here seriously considering a curer. It has dawned on me that 6 trebles can be hard to get over. Maybe we should go for 6 trebles in a row and give all of Hundom a hangover they will never recover from. Still haven’t heard from my big bluenose pal. Maybe he got sad drunk last night.



13 Jan 2018 10:39:54
I read this morning, with a sense of aw naw, Rogers talking up the defence. I sincerely hope he was trying to give them a boost and not alluding to a position that we don't need anybody.

How could the board expect the fans to fork out near on £50 for a ticket against Zenit if they don't address the farcical defence we have?

The only people who can derail our superiority sit in our boardroom in my opinion.

I can't see them mess it again, but with Celtic boards you never can tell. History is on the side of complacency and hoping.

1.) 13 Jan 2018 11:48:03
I get a bit frustrated when folk bang on about mcginn etc, good players but again going by our track record we don't sign loads of players at one time, so if we focus on midfielders again - we are not addressing what everyone knows we should be addressing.

I see "a this is a bad window blah blah. " coming - so we should be getting good defenders lined up on precontracts for the summer then? no?

2.) 13 Jan 2018 12:27:21
Digibanger its more than good defenders. The reason Celtic have gone backwards this year is down to the form of Sinclair and Roberts, but mainly Sinclair. Dembele got all the plaudits but look at him this season. Average at best. Why? When Sinclair was playing he was often unplayable. Carried the ball forward, opened up defences got the ball through to the front men. So did Roberts but to a lesser extent. Sinclair one side Roberts tbe other. Whomever played up front Dembele or Griff we got goals. Now Sinclair is struggling and Roberts missing we are not the same threat. So we need Roberts back and try to get Sinclair back or we need new wingers either for this season or next but that for me is the fix. Then 2 CB's and a keeper and by and large sorted.

3.) 13 Jan 2018 12:58:30
Every 6 months for as many years as I can remember the Celtic maanger always says that he wants to bring in as many new players at the START of the transfer window. IT NEVER HAPPENS. So far we have brought in a defender who is cup tied for Europe, a winger back out on loan and a 17 year old for the future. Our squad is no better than the end of the year.

4.) 13 Jan 2018 13:13:03
@ Johnnymac
I think it's unfair to name individual players as the reason for Celtic not reaching the heights of last year. What the invincible's did last year was exceptional and anyone who expected them to repeat that phenomenon this year is a little bit Naive if you ask me. I think Celtic as a whole have not been charging on all cylinders this season and is probably down to tiredness and perhaps a little bit of complacency. I find your comments with regards to getting Roberts back or a new winger more than a little disrespectful to James Forrest. Roberts might be ready at the end of February but that is no guarantee that he is going to walk into the starting eleven.

5.) 13 Jan 2018 13:39:36
Players get paid a lot of money to play. It is not disrespectful to point out when they have lost form for a prolonged period. Its up to them to sort it. Sinclair has been a shadow of last year in an attacking sense. He is to keen to play the safe ball and his finishing has been less than what we expect.

I don know of any other work arena where if your performance slips nobody mentions it. They are supposed to be men, are we hurting their feelings? that's a shame.

Everybody knows we haven't been at it and its due to players not performing, when they stop taking their wages they will be exempt from criticism. Until then man up and find the form. Dembelle has been awful, his touch has deserted him so far and that in itself could cost us a few million if we punt him this window. I would see him and hope he regains his touch and sell him in th summer. Its like trying to sell your car when it has had it wheels stolen, not the best time.

The reason they are getting flack is because they aren't even playing ok never mind like last year.

As for Roberts, if he is back on form he leaves forrest in his wake.

6.) 13 Jan 2018 15:43:56
Donjim. What a load of tosh you sre talking. Everyman and his dog knows Sinclair is behind last season. Unfair to name players? Why. The reason we are not as good as last season is because Sinclsir, Dembele, Roberts not as good as they were. Fact. Forrest doing better is great but what has that to do with my comment on Roberts and Sinclair? As Magicpole says if Roberts gets back to last season form he is on the team sheet before Forrest.

7.) 13 Jan 2018 18:11:01
Don’t forget apart from KT and hopefully Ajer improves year on year that Our GK and defenders are total Shoite and need replaced for us to progress.

Zenit will win home and away - seen nothing this season says otherwise.

8.) 13 Jan 2018 19:48:04
Johnnymac can we assume that as we are not as good this year it is because as you say Sinclair, Dembele and ROBERTS are not as good as they were, that the others such as Armstrong, Griffiths Simunovic etc are as good as they were if not better. this was my point, not that 2 or 3 are worse but the whole team has gone backwards a bit and unfair to blame anyone in particular.

9.) 13 Jan 2018 20:31:25
Magicpole, posters like yourself contribute to the " defencive rubbish "as you describe of our defence . Brendan Rodgers has many strings to his bow which makes him the good manager he is . One he places a lot of emphasis on is confidence building . If u ever become a parent you will quickly learn that your children will react positively to praise and confidence building . If u are a Celtic supporter u should want Celtic team to react positively .
We know Dembele reads Celtic forums as he taunted forum users in the summer .

10.) 14 Jan 2018 10:41:46
Well he was praised generously old man. But unlike children, adults need t be told the truth, and supported to return to the previous behaviour or form. If you ever had children I hope you didn't bring the up thinking everything they did was brilliant even if it wasn't.

Thats lowers standard, not just in football, but in life. Sometimes the truth hurts, if Dumbelle can't take criticism when it s based upon the actual reality then he is nothing more than a child, with a feeling of entitlement. Praise me praise me when I'm great, look the other way when Im not.

Boo hoo for their feelings. If he thinks he is going t avoid negativity then he is in the wrong business, in football and life. He is in control of the bar by which we judge him. You obviously support and encourage them to get back but you don't ignore the elephant in the room because it might make him sad.

Posters like you encourage happy clapping and no criticism because you think it hurts a team. Did you not criticise your children when their behaviour wasn't up to it? In case they were sad.

You give them the coping mechanisms to overcome bad times by getting them to believe in themselves, not pretend everything is brilliant when its not.

11.) 14 Jan 2018 13:02:50
A lot have took a dip in form this season. Jozo, Armstrong, Griffiths, Dembele, Tierney, Lustig, Roberts, Sinclair you could list more. Definitely due to the amount of games we have had to play. Some didn't get a full rest over summer because of the ridiculously scheduled international fixtures. Lustig seems to be suffering most by it as his age and legs are catching up on him. He needs a rest but can't due to the injury of Ralston. Moussa and Leigh are struggling for different reasons as both have had plenty of rest as has Armstrong as he gets swapped a lot for Newham. To me I think Sinclair has been sussed out as have Celtic which is another reason for the dip in form. Pressure on the defence seems to turn into goals now so hopefully with the rest a few additions and a tweak in tactics and style of play will help is rediscover last seasons form again.

12.) 15 Jan 2018 00:42:00
You are talking nonsense Magicpole . When my children were playing footbaii and camogi I supported then and encouraged them profusely .
Also when they were preparing for exames right up to their degrees ( all five got fist class honours ) even whe was studying and attaining her Bar examples wive and I encouraged and supported all five into their professional jobs .
As children we reprimanded them for the things children need reprimanding for.



02 Jan 2018 19:09:22
Anybody know where my pal could watch the City v Watford game in the city centre? It's not in sky so would need to be a pub that gets satellite games. Cheers.



27 Aug 2017 09:17:02
This is what it's like to be Celtic
Feck about with transfers you know.
Takes that long, a beard is certain to grow, certain to grow.

Kinda sums up my view on our transfer policy.

1.) 27 Aug 2017 11:15:06
This is how it feels to be celtic
Transfer plans revealed months ago
But guarantee the fans
Will still be having a moan, having a moan

Understand your frustration bud but the gaffer told us a couple will be brought in and then a few after qualification, there's still a week left, If BR had told us differently then yeah i can understand the worry and whingeing, so if no one comes in now fair enough whinge away, but i can't see that happening, i expect a few more ins and outs tbh.

2.) 27 Aug 2017 20:19:50
Rogers told us the plan was to get the players bedded in before we started the qualifiers. His words not mine.

We will bring people in but it won't be the first choices obviously. Rivaldo gone now, so where to go with that one. We need a full back as I don't think Ralston is ready yet for CL if he ever will be, which I doubt.

Gamboa might be away and Lustig has been a worry in the last couple of games.

I know I should never thought we wouldn't be flagging about with less than a week left of the CL window.

I don't think that's good enough.

What position?



Click To View This Thread

18 Apr 2018 17:02:06
So far it looks as if we have given an under 15 a game every time he has been on. His pass for the goal against Zenit showed class, but if a fag paper could hauf him in two, he will not feature or hold any place in the team.

We can all see that.

I was excited at the prospect too, a closer look at him and it’s clear he needs to develop core strength. We will build him up, get him better, probably an 18 month job, just in time to send him back.

Hope I’m wrong because if he could cope he brings another attacking option.

Hendry might grow into the CB we need, but he isn’t there yet by a long shot. As for Compre? Wtf is going on there. Rogers has bought 17 players and only 4 regularly play. That’s a return Ronnie would have been slaughtered for.

Brendan gets away with it.

Apart from about four games, we have been frustrating to watch this year. Some players form has dipped and the defence continues to cause heart failure and goals.

We keep hoping they will click and all thought after the Zenit gone game that it might happen. Even in that game our failure to put away chances was a worry. The return was poor and those missed chances cost us.

Form will return for those players affected, but, the defence needs sorted or we are in for a harder time qualifying fit the CL and the real possibility of embarrassing defeats from the top two in any group.

Brendan has had four windows to sort the defence. After Ibrox even he must know he needs to buy quality RB CB. and for me at least, another goalie.

Sort that and we will take off.

If he does the business next year, then that type of club will buy him. This year has been a letdown for him and his future us best served with us for at least another year.

It’s too early for Moussa to leave. If he continues with that form next season, especially in the CL, then he gets a better move and we get more money.

Of course we will be offering him a new deal. It will be interesting to see how we took up defensively for the qualifiers. That is where we will see the intent to be a CL level team. If we achieve that, then no one will even get close to us at home.

A Treble Treble anyone?

When any Rangets fan can show me a quote from any paper, or rangers fan site, that bemoaned the disparity in resources when they had all Hectors cash, I would maybe give them something for consistency.

That Rangers fan Mathew Lindsay, cannot write a opening para without mentioning the gulf in resources. I would love him to post one, just one, similar reference when his beloved team had all the cash., hectors and the Bank of Scotland’s that is. He won’t because he never mentioned it.

The hope for me is we improve again, defensively at least and qualify for the CL every year ensuring they can never come back unless another guy with “off the charts wealth”, pulls up.

We make us better in the CL, they are in for one helluva period being totally raging.

Let’s hope we assist fulsomely in their continued demise.

I love it when they delude themselves. It means the pain they suffer is more acute. I had a wee look on FF the comments before the game, then after. They go from being brilliant and definitely going to win, to every player is shite and Murty is a Fanny.

I had to stop reading it as I actually felt a rib fracture was imminent due to convulsive laughing fits.

I’m on Ibuprofen for my troubles. :)

I don’t want any of that slacking up rubbish at CP. I want us to push for goals for the whole 93 minutes. We should have scored more and driven them further into the arms of a Valium cocktail.

No let up, destroy them.

I don’t care who you were, whatvteam you supported, which god you pray to, what colour you are, even what fecking planet you come from. As long as you give us your all you will be a Celt.

Broony is a Celtic great. I feckin love him.
