On a couple of websites we are linked with the Turkish left back and Joe Gomez of Liverpool. Then today rumours of Chelsea and Munich looking at kt. I know he shot the rumours down but do you think the club are looking to sell kt. I sincerely hope not, I know possible cover is needed if izzy was to go but would a full international (turkey ) would be keen to come to sit on the bench


1.) 08 Jan 2017 22:24:17
A hope not mate, a doubt Rodgers would welcome any interest in kt. N he's a celtic diehard, he will go one day but not anytime soon hopefully. Fingers n toes crossed.

2.) 08 Jan 2017 22:33:58
I hope not but I think in most if not all clubs have a price for each player if they think its crazy money and if he would go I think it would happen but like you guys its just news papers trying to make up a story

As always, I'm a bit apprehensive about Sunday's game . However if as many have said before if we turn up and play the zombies shouldn't be able to live with us . I'm just hoping we haven't mentally switched off since we won the league, as I'm sure like the last game against them, they will start fast. In a weird way, because we appealed browns red last week we have kept our heads down in the press this week and haven't given them any motivation with snippets from players about how we are going to beat them.
Hopefully heads down, and hump them and let Pedro and his cronies that there is a massive gap and they haven't got the best squad in Scotland 😂.


1.) 21 Apr 2017 13:18:02
I am only worried about our team underachieving.

Referees have cost us, but to tell the truth we haven't seen Celtic perform to the standards set before Christmas other than a handful of times.

It's in Hoops' hands, they NEED to be up for it and get right intae them!

I hope Rangers come out and have a go - if they do and Brendan makes sure the lads are up for it - we'll be celebrating a 3/ 4-0 victory on Sunday afternoon. If Pedro tries to box in and frustrate, we'll control the game like October and break them down eventually.

2.) 21 Apr 2017 16:14:04
Agree honest, my biggest fear is us having an off day. Last time out when they gloriously defeated us for a draw, we didn't play at all that day and still should have horsed them. If we play to our strength we should not have any problem beating them. They are a very mediocre team who shouldn't be anywhere near us on the park. We need to kill them off early and try to make the closing stages of the game much more comfortable for us than it has been lately.
Yet again, my club is showing discipline and dignity while the Sevconians and their super manager (the 5th best in Quatar, by the way) are trotting out Jabba PR guff to try mind games. It's time to do our talking on the pitch and hump them to continue for the treble then hump them next week to keep up our UNBEATEN run.

3.) 21 Apr 2017 17:12:03
We have to be well-up for this and get out of 'title dawdle' mode that has seen us unusually drop points and lose goals to average opponents.
Even allowing for 'honest mistakes' and two-card-tricks, we definitely have the better players and match winners - as long as they play to their potential.

4.) 22 Apr 2017 10:06:25
I am the biggest optimist! But there is always something about hampden that frightens me when it comes to the bhoys. We need to start well and finish the game before HT. . Then I will be at ease lol. Paddy Roberts needs to start HH.



11 Feb 2017 11:33:44
Anyone know why Roberts is not in the squad?


1.) 11 Feb 2017 12:14:09
No; but he will be a big loss as Forrest and GMS don't offer the same threat or impact and when you add the absence of Armstrong, Rogic and Griffiths we are stretched up front. We should still have enough to win this tough tie, but just looking at the bench highlights the lack of quality back-up.

2.) 11 Feb 2017 13:13:14
So Forrest does not offer the same threat. Thankfully BR picks the team.

{Ed007's Note - Hahahahahah Talk about MOTD fever! One swallow does not a summer make.}

3.) 11 Feb 2017 14:25:47
I think forrest has contributed quite well this year. Scored a few and has a good amount of assists.

{Ed007's Note - He's s still far too inconsistent for a first team place. Bitton never out a foot wrong today and set up Lustig beautifully - is that him back in the good books who deserves to start every week now?}

4.) 11 Feb 2017 15:14:16
Around 11 assists and 6 goals fae forrest that's a good return so far fae a winger.
But agree he still drifts out of games a little to much but I'd say this is his best season for a long time.
Think biton is a good player who got lazy and got the kick up the rear he deserved. Since he's came back in he's looked good.

{Ed007's Note - Forrest's decision making doesn't seem to have improved with age and experience. He turns 26 this summer, he's not a young player any more and needs to do a lot more during games, his lack of tracking back is one of the reasons people are noticing Lustig struggling, he's not getting any help like where KT and Sinclair work as a unit on the left. Forrest has been poor for weeks and had a good game today, it's the story of his career.
I will admit Forrest has improved slightly but he's no better than squad players we have like Henderson or McGregor, and he's far less consistent than those two. Forrest will do us a job in Scotland but that's it and you could easily replace him without disrupting the squad.
I don't know one supporter who doesn't have a RW on their signing wishlist and that says a lot to me.}

5.) 11 Feb 2017 15:34:15
Hindsight is 20-20 and glad to be wrong on this occasion. Delighted by (and for) Forrest today who showed what he can do - however I bet it wasn't just me that was surprised - as this type of display has been very rare in the five years or so he has been in the squad and his last few appearances have been verging on ineffective.
The whole team were excellent today against a robust and sometimes dirty opponent and a very lenient referee and this is certainly shaping up to be an incredible season and one I have not enjoyed so much in decades. (With or without James) ?

{Ed007's Note - The ref was very poor today, that tackle on Sinclair at the centre circle was a red card any day of the week for me. At one point I thought, he's dishing out a few yellows to them but the first tasty one from Broony or Tierney would have been a straight red.}

6.) 11 Feb 2017 17:24:25
I agree ed, not consistent enough and he seems to play within himself at times, maybe scared of an injury. But at 26, he should be going for it every game. His pace is his biggest asset but seems to hold back sometimes so I think we need back up at least or use him as back up and sign a new player.

{Ed007's Note - I'd be happy enough to see him used as back up I suppose.}

7.) 11 Feb 2017 18:18:11
another mob of dirty bastards kicking us off the park, it wouldn't have happened to o'neill's team, and that's no meant to be a slight on todays team, i'd just like to see a bit more steel signed to protect our flair players.

8.) 11 Feb 2017 19:41:12
Forrest had a great game, have to admit Bitton has been very good too recently.

9.) 11 Feb 2017 19:28:01
I always have been a jf fan think people need to get off the lads back.

10.) 11 Feb 2017 19:36:08
Vigours should have walked for the sinclair tackle never mind the pull later after lustig was booked for same thing very inconsistent.

11.) 11 Feb 2017 18:39:06
Spot on with your assessment Ed. Forrest is frustrating the majority of the time and his work rate particularly tracking back is poor as is his decision making going forward. In saying that he was up for it today and whilst he did not have to track back much his decision making was very good.

Remember not that long ago Spurs allegedly wanted him but I don't recall many clubs snuffing about when he was in limbo with his contract situation last year.

The boy has great qualities but doesn't use them consistently. Hope we get PR signed longer as I worry how Forrest will be next season of he has no real challenge for his position.

Credit where it's due though today to him.

12.) 11 Feb 2017 22:03:01
Ed I know it's a bit left field but I heard from a good source that sevco are really struggling to keep the lights on till season ticket time, so why, if they're not 100% positive, say they resigned? Surely they must have a letter or an e-mail confirming all of this or are they not just crap at football, they're also crap at admin.

{Ed007's Note - The club is one of the worst ran clubs in the UK, they are a laughing stock and a shambles from the top of the marble staircase to where William Taube was murdered.
It's no secret that TRIFC need funding (soft loans) to complete the season - there was a warning in their last accounts confirming it. The problem is King doesn't have it, Jamie on here has more money than Paul Murray and Dougie Park is getting peed off needing to help fill the void every month and there is now a serious downturn in his business as more and more people refuse to use any his businesses, Park's son Graeme sees the connection to TRIFC as toxic to their other businesses over the longer term.
A large haulage/logistics company from Lanarkshire recently settled their account and cancelled and returned their fuel cards to Parks for refuelling at their garages and informed them in writing that they will not be renewing their leases of executive vehicles all thanks to that moron from the Sons of Strewth thinking he's a big man.
Would the SFA/SPFL have let Accies run the club they way they have TRIFC?}

13.) 11 Feb 2017 22:53:34
Class Ed. That's the very man I've heard is putting all the money in, the other bears are not getting a mention. And young junior Parks is seeing all his inheritance going up the Swanny, with no chance of a return. Serves them right, the peepuls time has come right enough.

{Ed007's Note - I have family connections that have known Dougie Park since him and I think it was his dad had 3 buses running out of Warren Road/Cadzow Estate in Hamilton that ran on red diesel. They have done deals (legitimate and possibly a bit questionable on all sides) with him to help regenerate areas of Hamilton for well over 20 years or more.
One thing I do know is that Dougie Park is a miserable sod, he likes to know exactly where very penny of his is going. I remember stories years ago on long journeys he docked his drivers a 50p a day to cover them taking toilet breaks whether they did or didn't.
He doesn't have the money required to challenge Celtic but he is probably the one person who could make the tough decisions needed at Ibrox if the fans would accept the position it left them in. If there was someone going to invest untold millions they'd have done it before now, Park could do a job like Milne at Aberdeen or Budge at Hearts, run the club well but within it's means.}

14.) 11 Feb 2017 23:01:31
someone somewhere is propping them up ed, i wouldn't be surprised if it ever came out that they had received secret sfa or scottish government money, there's only so far these temporary loans can go, and also no one in authority seems to be saying anything about the rules they must be breaking.

{Ed007's Note - You need to stop reading these begging bowl blogs lol. There's no limit to how far soft loans go as long as they keep coming in. Until we bring in any kind of FFP Regs to the league it's too easy for questionable financial shenannigins to go on. If Scotland had brought in FFP Regs like UEFA and England have TRIFC would be in a shitload of trouble and facing serious sanctions, look at what goes on at Notts Forest and Leeds every couple of months as examples.}

15.) 12 Feb 2017 00:13:15
i don't read any blogs, i'm good at maths and these wee 1m pound at a time loans can't be adding up to what has been put in to keep them afloat since 2012, the funny handshaker brigade will be involved somewhere along the line, at the end of the day there will always be corrupt hands turning a blind eye to keeping that rotten to the core bigoted orginisation going.



28 Jan 2017 16:24:27
What do people think regarding the players that aren't deemed good enough for us. At the minute it looks like we will be stuck with effy and cifti and so on for the foreseeable future.


1.) 28 Jan 2017 16:37:47
Simple really - should never have been with us in the first place!

Ambrose had done his bit to be fair to him - on the odd occasion he's been almost ok.

Players like Allen, Bailly, Ciftci are the ones that annoy me. Signed, not played, probably on decent money and probably on three year deals. Madness. Rant over

2.) 28 Jan 2017 16:47:12
And one last thing - imo the "7" jersey is almost sacred. Worn by the King and the true King Jinky.

Should never have been given to a lady ditch panic buy squad player. That's me, I'm done - feeling better 👍🏼😂

3.) 28 Jan 2017 17:19:36
We'll put Craigie, Pistol Pete should never have sanctioned most of them, now they'll sit tight and run out their contracts. And why shouldn't they, even though we all don't like it. They'll only move on for similar money or they have a bit of ambition left but any club they go to won't be anywhere near the calibre of club they're at now and they all know it. My rant over

4.) 28 Jan 2017 18:26:00
Utter bollocks regarding number 7. It's just a number. What about 25, 9, 10 to name a few

5.) 29 Jan 2017 01:03:27
Aye the sacred 25, Thomas rogne :) as I said DN30, in my opinion, almost holy - in your just a number.

Like everything, everyone has their own views.

Ciftci shouldn't even have had a squad number full stop

6.) 29 Jan 2017 03:05:30
Thought you were a big 18 fan DN. Now there's a jersey that's hard to fill

7.) 29 Jan 2017 10:12:01
Craigie was referring to lubo. Point I was making is it doesn't matter what number a player has on there back, as long as they produce the goods. If it was as sacred as some think we wouldn't of seen average players like miku, zurawski, Juninho etc.

TTTS nice try lol. Always said liked Lennon as a player but not a manager. Not allowed to say that though on this site, too much of a clique mentality

8.) 29 Jan 2017 11:51:46
25 was lubo's number i think that was dn's point.

9.) 29 Jan 2017 13:49:15
Lubo and Nakia wore 25. They did alright didn't they :)

I see you point though mate, shouldn't matter what number as long as they are giving their all and producing the goods.



22 Jan 2017 16:46:39
Can anyone explain why Roberts doesn't start ahead of Forrest? He just seems to create so much more for us . It's not like Forrest defends that much


{Ed007's Note - I think that's why Lustig is attracting so much criticism, Forrest never gets back to help out.}

1.) 22 Jan 2017 17:10:34
Paddy for me should be given 90mins to see if he can cause problems the whole game and not fade out. Forrest looks the stronger of the two physically and is quicker but lazy. We are missing a creative grafter on the right. Shame gamboa hasn't cut it.

2.) 22 Jan 2017 19:08:03
We really need to get wee paddy signed up pronto. Not another loan deal. Push the boat out and land him on a 4/ 5 year contract.



20 Jan 2017 16:49:48
In the summer I thought moyes was our best option. How wrong was I, really think we dodged a bullet with him and won the prize with br. Fortunately for us, he thought he was too good to come and manage us and he deserved a premier league job. Hope u r enjoying it now moyesy, looks like a terrible decision now . On sky basically whinging that he has no money and anyone he brings in won't make a difference. Get on with it and coach like u r paid to do, just goes to show the over rated premier league isn't paved with gold the way they try and sell it to us. Thank goodness we got Brendan instead


1.) 20 Jan 2017 17:30:23
Football coaching has got to be a lot easier if you have plenty of money to spend. I wonder how well Guardiola and Mourinho would do if they had to manage the likes of Rotherham or Chesterfield.
If Moyes is as good as he thinks he is then he should be able to improve the players at Sunderland and keep them up that way.

2.) 20 Jan 2017 17:32:22
I think he a dick. Always have tbh. Arrogant in his attitude towards the hoops. Hope he's burnt his bridges now tho

3.) 20 Jan 2017 18:13:27
Spot on Quinn-I agree with every point you've made brother-but I was firmly in the Rodgers camp and always had an inkling Moyes was an egotistical fud whose so called Celtic minded credentials were debatable 🍀

4.) 20 Jan 2017 18:59:05
I remember him saying that the reason he failed at Man U was because they told him they were going to buy Ronaldo back as well as Messi. Now it wouldn't take a genius to work out that both them in a team would make a significant impact, but to be stupid enough to come away with that. He basically told everyone himself that he was sh1te

5.) 20 Jan 2017 21:42:13
Definitely dodged a bullet there quinn. It's a good thing our bhoy Desmond canny stand smug huns.

6.) 20 Jan 2017 23:00:44
wasn't that long ago we were asking Coyle, McKay, to give up engerland (and wales) to come to us and were knocked back.

whats fur ye.

7.) 20 Jan 2017 23:34:42
mourinho sets out his team to defend, organise and hit on the counter. Quickest way for Jose to punch ye is call him fat sam with a mare dough

8.) 20 Jan 2017 23:51:17
It's well reported that as a coach he is in the dark ages training and tactic. Didn't want him and admittedly was unsure about BR but I'll hold my hands up. I work with a scouser that has a side in tickets and hotel packages he has built up over the years and he has said on numerous occasions if backed with the right group rodgers would take us to the knockouts. I laughed it off as I thought he was taking the piss engarund type. He wasn't and is adamant. Wtf not? HH

Can't believe paddy isn't starting, he turned the game for us last week . Hopefully james will prove Brendan correct and he's been on fire in training.

What do we need to do to get rid of him 😂.


{Ed007's Note - His work permit application will now need to be appealed after it being rejected. My own theory is because if it had passed Efe would have been able to play Man Utd in the FA Cup and Jose was a bit worried - think along the Jorge Cadete fiasco :-D

I personally don't want the club to sell him unless he wants to go . I understand 40 million is massive money but we fell incredibly lucky with him. Say we sold him and obviously bought another forward in the summer to replace him, what if he didn't hit the ground running and we miss out on the champions league. That 40 million would then be only be worth 10 million because of lost revenues. If he wants to go, sell him after our qualifiers.

I understand money talks, but I have to say I was surprised when I read that as well. If that's the case, I would try and get 4 million for him and punt him. We basically saved him from the scrap heap and apart from his first season he has made quite a few mistakes . If he prefers to earn more money while sitting getting splinters in Chelsea good luck to him . My only concern would be the club bringing in another keeper. The only bad buy Brendan seems to have brought in is de vries . Hypothetically, if we could get 4 million for him, add another 2 to it and go out and get a good young keeper .

I honestly can't see why he doesn't start ahead of Forrest. Forrest started the season quite well but he seems to be going missing again in games . Roberts always seems to create something for us .

Exactly ed, it can't be anything but positive news. I'm sure he wouldn't have signed for the four years unless he was given certain assurances regarding budgets and control of the club.


{Ed007's Note - Definitely mate, Rodgers will know that the board will back him and do everything they can to help move the Club forward. Rodgers has seen that unlike the EPL where immediate success is demanded he'll get plenty of time here to develop young players which he obviously loves to do when you hear him speak.
I wouldn't be at all surprised to see out transfer record broken this summer.}

I'd accept he does a good job but you could argue that his penny pinching has cost us serious money . Employing Ronnie as a cheap project cost us massively in Europe. We only have to look at the turnover we have just had to see the difference it made. I know we won two league titles under him but let's be realistic to say that probably most of the managers in the league would have won the league if they were in charge of us the past couple of seasons. If we had pushed the boat out more the previous seasons and qualified our turnover would be massive over the last few years.

Said it at the weekend but Henderson always impresses me . His fifteen minute run out tonight, he showed again good vision, lovely weight of pass. And created a good few chances for the team . Hope he gets a fair chance now for the rest of the season, but again another good solid performance. We just look so comfortable against everyone in the league. I just hope the management and certain players don't get too bored with the league as I look forward us getting better over the next couple of seasons

I think we could do with another forward but it's looking really unlikely. At the start of the window if we were only to get one player in, I would have been disappointed. Especially as br said he wanted two or three in. Now with all the speculation I'll just be glad to hold onto what we have . Although if dembele has a serious problem with his knee, we could end up struggling.
