The fixtures are fixed. The SPFL inform the mob that arrange the fixtures of all permutations i. e Both Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee clubs can't play at home on the same day, the Glasgow derby venues alternate each season i. e the first fixture has to be at Celtic Park as the first fixture was at Ibrox last season, The Champions must play at home on the opening day etc.

I don't know where they get this imaginary " random computer" from, there is nothing random about the fixtures. The fixtures are entirely deliberate👍.

I'm sure they use algorithms when getting the full fixture list.

To keep the fixtures fair, Sevco were at home to Aberdee twice before the split last season now they are away to Aberdeen twice. That's fair and deliberate👍.

They are absolutely bonkers. You give them facts and they still don't get it. By the time season 2019/ 2020 ended Celtic had played 5 home games against the top 6 and 8 away. They had played 8 at home against the top 6 and 5 away.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 15:24:49
Tbh they should be more concerned when they play the bottom teams.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 15:57:09
I see fat sally suggesting that the fixtures being rigged because rangers are away to Aberdeen and Celtic are at home to Hamilton and the old firm game has been put back till October . Sally no one is interested in anything you have to say you are a failed manager and very bitter and I feel your pain.

Is there supposed to be a set date for the first Glasgow derby of the season? I have no doubt Sky have hinted to the SPFL that they would rather have fans in for their showpiece fixture.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 17:53:36
Anyway they didn't want to play behind closed doors if memory serves me correctly😂😂.

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 18:42:28
Honestly what kind of supporters don't want fans inside the stadium.
We have seen the German and Epl games. They are not great. How can u not want supporters in one of the biggest games in the world.
It beggars belief it really does.

Would you be happy getting Erik Sviatchenko back? 28 years old and knows the club well. Contract with Midgieland until 2022.

Too slow.

Wasn't good enough first time round unfortunately. His Mrs any good tho?

Agree1 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 13:56:22
He's a good backs to the wall defender but with the style of play we play his lack of pace is a major problem.

Ed 007 why did we kick off our league campaign in tynecastle in 2016? Am I right in saying celtic asked for the switch for some reason?

{Ed007's Note - Hhhhmmmmmm 🤔🤔 was it something to do with our new pitch settling in or a rugby tournament we were hosting a game for???}

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 21:54:25
Was the rugby ed was talking about this the other day.

{Ed007's Note - Cheers mate 👍

Celtic took up the option of a free weekend the following week so they could play a glamour tie against Inter Milan in Ireland which was part of a continental cup.
The option was granted if Celtic played their first game away, which allowed Sevco to put their Championship winning league flag up in a home draw against Hamilton.
I think it might have been Partick Thistle we then played at a later date.

Thats it buzz.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 19:45:01
So with the squad going to France next week potential starting 11
Bain
Ajer
Jullian
Welsh

Fringpong
Brown
McGregor
Christie
Taylor

Edouard
Griff.

{Ed007's Note - Would that team would win us the 10, Richy? I'd say yes, not good enough in Europe but more than capable of winning us 10 and another couple of cups.}

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 19:56:56
As a starting point yeah additions not many needed and with regards to Europe we’ll need a couple of changes to that team and maybe formation too but a good starting point I believe. In regards to FF my take is all parties are happy to deal just to get the right deal possibly?

{Ed007's Note - Throw in Elhamed (if he can stay fit) Ntcham, Forrest, Elyounoussi, Soro, Henderson, Mikey Johnston, young Dembele and Klimala and we have plenty of options without adding any new players.
I say it every window, we need be looking to add quality over quantity, we've got plenty of players and there needs to be a point where youngsters step up or leave on loan to see how they progress.}

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 19:58:00
spot on ed007. and that's us not even strengthened yet. hope young welsh gets a run out.

{Ed007's Note - There's a few players on the fringes that deserve to be given a chance to see what they can do - when the time is right of course.}

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 20:05:33
IF and it's a big if we can keep El Hamed fit he will be a huge asset this season. When he's played he's always been solid as a rock. A back 3 of him Julian and Ajer would do for me.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 20:24:26
I know Lennon likes the 3 5 2 but if we play that I feel we need stronger options at rwb do we have any1 in the reserves to play there? And would you guys stick with the 3 5 2 or maybe go back to the 4 2 3 1 and who would u play?

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 20:36:44
I thought ajer had made it clear he wants a move this window, im sure his agent said he would be leaving. Maybe I've got it wrong.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 20:37:28
Only asking because I don't think frimpong is a rb and would rather play a natural defender there even if they are young if they are good enough play them.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 20:51:21
I think this squad is pretty versatile Frank and have proved many times over the last 2 or 3 seasons that they can change things around during games and they all seem comfortable doing it.
Always thought Johnny Hayes was a handy player to have when needing to change things, strange we let him go.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 21:14:26
Yer loved Hayes played for the hoops was better than bolingoli but he might prove most of us wrong this year I hope.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 21:26:16
Steph ajer never actually said anything and he has binned that agent.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 21:47:00
Frimpong has bags of potential, the lad is young he can't be written off, a player with that pace in the SPL needs to be used and his confidence will keep growing.
Our squad is in a good state, loads if options, ed is right the youngsters need used as they are the future, Welsh can be brought on in games to cover CB, we have Bitton who has done well there to.
Church is good enough to cover LWB, and I think again this lad could have a great future. I like the lads going out on loan, but sometimes the clubs they go to do them no favours, if the team you train and play with are rubbish then that just slows your progress.
Karamoko and Henderson can be used more this season, hopefully soro and klimala add a contribution to the team.
I think a goalkeeper who will be here for the next 5 seasons is what we need, not a gamble, or an overhyped hasbeen, FF would get the nod from me if he wanted to come, however I think there is plenty decent goalkeepers about, and I think we should spend well in this area, maybe a solid CB with good experience as well to add strength and depth and I'd be happy with watching this squad absolutely smash the 10IAR.
I would love to see the young lads blooded in and what a start to their celtic careers if they can help the team achieve this next title.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 07:03:37
If you are playing a 4-2-3-1

Would be

Bain
Elhamed
Ajer
Jullian
Taylor

Brown
McGregor

Forrest
Christie
Elyounoussi

Edouard.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 08:24:51
Yep bring young ones in agreed. But the nucleus of the team has to stay. Also don't forget
Soro klamila no excuses now been here a while full pre training will be behind them and ready to go. Let's see what happens.

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 16:16:26
Fair dos kev I just remembered his agent bumping his gums about a move. Glad young ajer has binned him.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 18:37:23
Poor Gary fae castlemilk on ssb 🙈 no other words needed.

06 Jul 2020 19:09:27
Lawell has consumed him. Lennon declared us champions. We do what we want get what we want. he's paranoid about his paranoia! I really wanted the remaining games played to party and enjoy the 9 but seeing and listening to what it has done to them is far better.

Agree4 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 13:11:35
Hi ED 007 NL confirming today that a deal with both clubs had been agreed it’s all gone quiet at the players end is that a bit of mind games going on cause he didn’t need to do that?

{Ed007's Note - Lennon was being honest and also keeping the fans in the loop.}

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 14:29:11
Was it Forster he was talking about? I never heard what NL said but I'm beginning to think Forster is holding off to see if another EPL side comes in for him.

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 15:12:07
Feck him its all about Celtic move on and get 10 in the bag.

Agree2 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 16:13:38
Do you think he’s calling out FF and trying to put pressure on him or is deal dead in your eyes ED 007?

{Ed007's Note - No and no.}

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 17:14:31
im thinking big fraser has herd of interest else were and his agent is sounding things out for him and he is looking at his option and he is leaving celtic to fall back on if he does no feel the other deals are right for him I could be wrong but just what I think.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 17:18:10
Not sure that will work out too well, can't see pistol waiting that long with only bain as back up.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 08:35:47
Hi Ed, wondering what your thoughts were on David Turnbull? We're a year on from almost signing the lad, do you think we'll go back for him and could he be Brown's future replacement?

{Ed007's Note - Unless Ntcham leaves this window it could be January or even next summer before we bring Turnbull in.
We've already got Brown's replacement in McGregor imo - we need someone with a better eye for a pass to play the deep-lying playmaker role and control the tempo/speed of the team - and I've been saying for the past couple of years that it should be McGregor that does that job and not Brown.}

Agree2 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 11:59:38
So have I .

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 12:09:36
Is that not taking a big part of McGregors game away?

{Ed007's Note - He was immense doing that job when Brown was out and the whole team looked a lot more sharper and fluid in the attack.}

Agree1 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 12:22:53
No I do agree with that ed, I just think he looks to enjoy a bit more freedom in his attacking play he has been outstanding since moving to 3 5 2.

{Ed007's Note - It's McGregor's eye for a pass and his passing range that makes me thing he would be ideal in there. I'd have McGregor doing the deep-lying playmaker role, Christie as the box-to-box midfielder and Ntcham (or A.N. Other) as a the forward playing CM/CAM.
Brown is good at covering the defence in the DM role but that position/role is fading out imo and let's be honest about it, in Scotland do we really need someone sitting in front of the defence who offers very little in the attacking phases of the game - especially if we are playing 3 at the back with Ajer in there?}

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 12:45:55
Aye fair point mate.

{Ed007's Note - 👍

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 13:01:24
We also have Ismaila Soro to come in yet, who knows how good he might be? , David Turnbull is not a priority signing at the moment, we need 2 keepers, a centre half and a quality left back signed as soon as possible .

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 14:32:10
drewzy I'm keen to see Soro play as from what I've seen on YouTube, looks the part. A solid ball winning CM who controls midfield.

Agree0 0Disagree

06 Jul 2020 20:04:22
Brown brings a lot to the table but definitely needs to be used sparingly this season a lot of his passes play guys into trouble. Do you think he could do a job a cb similar to Biton. a lot of the time he's as deep as the cb.

{Ed007's Note - Maybe playing as an old fashioned sweeper?}

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 06:51:58
Hi Ed, thanks for your response. I agree that McGregor has really grown as a player and is crucial to our midfield. Personally, I get the feeling that Ntcham will be away sooner rather than later and, if fit, I'd take Turnbull in a heartbeat.

{Ed007's Note - I think you might be right about Ntcham 👍

Agree0 0Disagree

07 Jul 2020 13:29:19
I'd probably rather have Christie as the CAM as he's better outside the box for goals. Ntcham isn't too strong with his back to goal wants far too much time on the ball and his shots are usually into row Z.
