Funny how with a prospect of football being played behind closed doors everyone and their granny involved in the game at the highest level is using the Jock Stein quote Football without the fans is nothing. Yet when normality once again resumes the fans will still be treated with contempt from those at the very top.

UEFA have lifted restrictions in England and Scotland that will allow games to be broadcast at 3pm. Looks like games will be played behind closed doors.

When? And I don't mean 3pm haha havnt seen anything saying otherwise.

If it were my decision I just want the season played out any way it can even if it's late. Open doors/ closed doors doesn't matter, let's just win it officially and mathematically. The Sevs can't have any genuine complaint although the most important thing is that we all say safe to celebrate the inevitable. Stay safe bhoys, think of others and be responsible. HH.

Nothing official from the FAs but its thought this is the first step towards playing games behind closed doors.

Robbie Brady and Jeff Hendrick on a double free from Burnley, I think that would be great business, both proven international's with lots of big game experience. a few papers have said it's on the cards, hope so.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

02 Apr 2020 11:29:25
Think both will stay in England. Just paper talk because their both irish. Although think they would be decent signings if it did happen.

Agree0 0Disagree

02 Apr 2020 19:22:59
I can't say I'd be happy with either to be honest.

Agree1 0Disagree

03 Apr 2020 08:54:01
Both would rip our league.

03 Apr 2020 14:29:27
Both linked with Newcastle also.

I was surprised to read Brady was 28 I thought he was much older.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Apr 2020 19:49:15
Does Brady still play every week? Remember he was outstanding a few seasons ago but can't remember seeing him anytime recently. Having said that I don't really watch much of english football anymore.

Agree0 0Disagree

03 Apr 2020 21:58:50
Brady has played 16 times this season and hendrick 32.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Apr 2020 04:23:30
He doesn't AG. Which is why he in particular wouldn't impress me. Hendricks is a work-horse, and that's about it. At times he might have his uses but he'd be one of our higher earners and I don't know who he walks in for. That's not the sort of winger we should be going for.

Agree0 0Disagree

04 Apr 2020 12:53:51
What would the point be in giving Hayes a new deal if we are interested in Brady? Brady is a LW that can cover RW and LB too. Unless we are cutting our losses on Boli.

Agree0 0Disagree

05 Apr 2020 00:14:11
If Brady could reach the level he was at a few seasons ago then I'd have him in a heartbeat and I've always liked Hendrick but thought our chance was gone with him when he signed for Burnley. can't remember who he was at before tho also can't be arsed googling it either haha.

buzz bomb have you any info on yesterdays uefa meeting with regards to finishing the season.

I hope you are keeping well Robroy.
It looks like all the Associations at this present time want to finish off their seasons.
Which is good news for Celtic and our fans because we would rather win the title on the pitch.
The only problem I see with that scenario is the length of time it could take to start playing again and then the time it will take to finish off this season. There will come a time soon when the clubs will be wanting prize money to keep their clubs afloat.
Celtic and Hearts will want to wait and play the season out for obvious reasons and the rest of the clubs I think will accept to finish as we are, to get their hands on the prize money.
Sevco will be the only club who will want neither of those scenarios to come to a conclusion. Sevco will demand a null and void season to paper over the cracks, even if it hits them in the pocket. They have done everything in their power to try and stop 10 in a row and will continue to do so. They will be hoping it puts 10 in a row off for another year whilst they pray it gives them more time for major investment to come into their club.
I think personally there will need to be a deadline. If there is no chance of getting this season finished by September then they should give Celtic the title and relegate Hearts and then they can pay out the much needed prize money.
What do you think robroy?

I am keeping well mate. bored out ma heid but it could be worse, but thank you for asking. hope you and the family are keeping safe.
I want us to play the league till the end and give the rangers no excuse to say it was tainted. I do fear how ever the gangsters that run our game will find some obscure rule to appease the orcs.

Agree0 0Disagree

01 Apr 2020 02:09:24
Don't know how accurate this is.
But I've been told an announcement tomorrow that the season to be cancelled, next seasons league winners basically win a double league. so basically would be 10 in a row.

Don't really believe it myself to be honest.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

01 Apr 2020 11:12:19
how can next seasons winners win a double league by playing one league. this season should be finished at whatever date before they even think about starting next season.

This was a rumour started by thogden (youtuber) for april fools. It's not true!

29 Mar 2020 23:51:57
I see a lot of rumours flying about that the Spl are about to declare the season over, declare Celtic as Champions, and not penalise clubs for going into administration.
Surely they can only wait and follow what happens in other countries?

If all the other leagues decide to finish the current season then I can't see the sense in The Scottish league starting next season at the same time. If that was the case then clubs here would need to compensate fans who have been short changed this season thus adding to each clubs debts.

I think that we should just take our lead from what every other league does and follow the same model otherwise we could be playing a different season to everyone else with all the problems that will create for European qualifications.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

30 Mar 2020 12:50:15
If that's true it wouldn't surprise me if the reason was to ensure Sevco don't get punished for going into administration.

Agree5 0Disagree

30 Mar 2020 23:07:45
So the football authorities would be saying it’s ok to bump suppliers and players and staff and not being punished or be made to sell all players that your club can’t afford or probably couldn’t afford but you signed anyway? The recent calls for sporting integrity seem more laughable now? 😂 what happens when loan players loan agreements run out?

Agree1 0Disagree

30 Mar 2020 23:15:35
I agree BB I think they are trying not to show if they believe that Servco are a new entity or not as far as I believe if a club goes into administration twice they receive 20 points deduction and if they believe they are a new club it will be 10 points So too protect them selves they may try to waiver any point deductions. Unless it's to start in the new season?

Agree3 0Disagree

31 Mar 2020 23:44:09
If this is true, it will because there might be a good few clubs going into administration, depending how long this virus goes on, we might not reach the peak until the start of may, and the lockdown might not be eased until the middle of June, and then the virus might come back in a second wave. I think the only way clubs can survive, including our own is to stop paying players wages, at the current rate, because if the club's keep paying wages when there is no income it will only leaf to misery as Mr Micawber said.

Agree0 0Disagree

25 Mar 2020 08:42:23
The talk of players wages and capping them at £2500 per month is very interesting. Why not? Maybe these dark days will make us all reconsider the celebrity culture we have embraced whatever a celebrity is and remind players especially the EPL overpaid Prima Donnas who the real hero's are namely the brave men and women in the NHS who are risking their lives to save yours and mine. Greater love hath no man than he lays down his life for his friends.

I remember wondering 20 years ago when my mother died in hospital and I saw first hand what nurses do why my accountant was being paid £100,000 for looking after my money and nurses where being paid £20,000 for looking after my mother.

Don't think I've ever had an answer to that other than it telling me where society's priorities lie.

Keep them in your prayers.

I totally agree with what Lou Macari says in today's paper about premier League players digging into their pockets and donating money to the fight against the virus,

Agree2 0Disagree

27 Mar 2020 17:25:43
We also need the fans to dig deep for their teams as well as the nhs. I see Stirling Albion raised £20k in 36 hours to help save their club. Fair play.

29 Mar 2020 00:32:14
I would run through brick walls if I could for 2.5k per week. Once I earned this probably wouldn't the next time lol.

I think we need to all (the whole world) : rethink things, forget about this ten in a row rubbish, itz meaningless, (that for all these ten in a row obsessed headbangers who think this ten in a row team (potentially) , is better than the Lisbon lions,

This corovirus will go on a long time, and a lot of people we know will die, well I might die and you might die, when my mother was growing up in he west of ireland, she said in every house, in every village, someone would die of TB, the more things change, the more they are the same.

Cheer up man this thing will peak and life will get back to normal. and 10 iar hopefully will happen it's not pish it's about making history.

The Lisbon Lions won every honour they entered in ‘67 and that will never be repeated in Scotland. The Lisbon Lions will still go down in our history as our greatest team ever because they brought the big cup home.
This current squad have had a domestic invincible season. They have won a Treble Treble and counting. They will eventually win 10 In A Row and for me personally I will put them up there with the Lisbon Lions because they will eventually be the most successful squad in our history and the most successful that I have witnessed.
If that makes me an obsessive headbanger then so be it.

{Ed007's Note - How can you put the amount of players that will have contributed to the 10 in a row in the same bracket as a team that won a EC?
The current squad don't have a Treble Treble, the current squad doesn't have 8 leagues in a row and the current squad didn't have an invincible season.}

Agree1 0Disagree

29 Mar 2020 15:15:08
The Lisbon Lions was only 11 players and they only played one game together after Lisbon against Clyde.
There are plenty of players in that era we class as Lisbon Lions because they all deserve the credit and not only 11 players. They won 9 titles in a row and also reached 20 domestic finals out of 21 In that era.
It’s similar to when I’m referring to the squad of players who have contributed to our most successful period in our history.
I am not taking anything away from the Lisbon Lions, far from it. I am only giving praise to all the players who have got us to where we are.

{Ed007's Note - If the Lisbon Lions won 9 titles in a row why does Bertie Auld only have 6 Championship medals? So who are the plenty of players that are classed as Lisbon Lions who didn't win the EC because I've never heard that in my life before.}

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Mar 2020 15:41:24
There are players who have medals who never played in Lisbon.
They went to all the reunions John Hughes, Joe McBride and Wullie O Neill showed me his own medal when he worked in Bairds.

{Ed007's Note - And Charlie Gallacher played in a couple of games as well so they were part of the squad that season. Who are theses plenty of players in that era that are classed as Lions, are you seriously saying that there are players out there that weren't at Celtic in season 66/67 that are classed as Lisbon Lions by people?}

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Mar 2020 16:05:14
Okay Ed. I liked to call the 9 in a row legends the Lisbon lions because it was before my time although I clearly knew that wasn’t the case but I gave them a label because of that great achievement.
My grandkids will look at someone like Forrest who will win the full 10 titles the same way as Christie who didn’t win the full 10.The same as I look at Auld who only won 6 titles the same as I look at Billy McNeill who won the full 9 titles.
It’s not a big deal.

{Ed007's Note - The original nine in a row has absolutely nothing to do with the Lisbon Lions apart from some of them were part of both achievements - it's not a matter of opinion.}

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Mar 2020 16:27:53
I can see why calling other players Lisbon Lions would annoy some people because it is not true. I didn’t think it was a big deal but from now on I will only refer to the Lisbon Lions as the players mentioned above plus the guys who played in Lisbon. 👍.

{Ed007's Note - It's not annoying, it's just wrong. So when do we stop saying that this squad has won a Treble Treble and had an invincible season?}

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Mar 2020 16:40:39
Am with you ed the lions were named because that wonderful afternoon in Lisbon and 11 players.

{Ed007's Note - Exactly, the clue's in the name.}

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Mar 2020 18:30:47
Ed. that's like saying 50 years ago Auld only won 6 titles but didn’t win the full 9 titles. He has always been classed as a 9 in a row winner. Which he is.
In 50 years time it will be the same. It will be players remembered for winning 10 in a row or whatever it may be and there will be players remembered for winning or playing a part in winning a Treble Treble.

{Ed007's Note - Hahahaha in 50 years time maybe James Forrest will be called a Lisbon Lion as well then eh? In fact I've just decided that he is, if you can award Bertie Auld league winners medals for titles he never won and praise players for things they had nothing to do with then it's only fair that I can award James Forrest a EC winners medal.}

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Mar 2020 02:03:34
The Lisbon Lions are the players that got them to Lisbon as well the ones that played there, am I the only sane person here?

Agree0 0Disagree

30 Mar 2020 07:52:45
Where you the only sane person when you wanted to send Brown out on loan and build a team around Kouassi and Bayo and replace an overrated Forster with 37 year old Gordon.

Agree0 0Disagree

31 Mar 2020 12:52:20
Yes, I would have sent Brown anywhere to get him off the first team, but I would have built the team round McGregor and Christie, and Forster is vastly over rated.

The UEFA president has denied speculation that if the leagues are not finished by June 30th that UEFA will demand the leaders be declared Champions.
Spineless UEFA could leave it to the Sfa/ Spfl to decide the outcome. Not Good.

Believable0 0Unbelievable

24 Mar 2020 22:22:33
Eufa can't declare anyone champions, they can say the team that was at the top of the league, when the league was unfinished, if that is what happens, will be that countries representative in the champions League, Eufa rule 43, subsection 11, paragraph 6b.

Agree0 0Disagree

24 Mar 2020 23:18:33
I don’t understand what you mean. I can’t find the rule book for domestic leagues.
Are you saying UEFA will leave it up to the Sfa?
It could depend on what country the league leaders play in if they will be declared champions. When Partizan Belgrade were declared Champions in 1999 it was a joint decision from UEFA and the Yugoslavian FA.
I don’t think it will come down to a decision because I think the outstanding games will be played at some stage.

Agree0 0Disagree

29 Mar 2020 00:38:34
SFA will do anything to keep slippy for one more season. Null and void but pay them for finishing second without acknowledging we won 9 in a row. Still want to qualify for Europe. but no real league positions as null etc. but you know they want all the good without the reality. Oh and Celtic didn't win the league either so not 9 in a row. helps slippy's cv

So Sevco say "pay us for 2nd and allow us to be in Europe for this honour". " Deny Celtic Title for the same but pay them for being winners anyway.
