Any truth in rumours howe is in Glasgow?


1.) 26 Mar 2021 23:20:52
Howe odds on to be new manager, Keane out to 4/1.

2.) 26 Mar 2021 23:34:02
If he was in Glasgow someone would have a picture.

3.) 26 Mar 2021 23:57:32
Plz please be true.

4.) 27 Mar 2021 00:45:04
Benny, I heard that too. Apparently he was carrying Keano's bags. HH.

5.) 27 Mar 2021 07:02:02
I seen rumours on twitter, but didn't seem legit. But, have caused a big odds shift.

6.) 27 Mar 2021 07:57:31
1dont want eddie howe either.

7.) 27 Mar 2021 08:59:58
Is it pep for you LAW?

8.) 27 Mar 2021 09:44:23
It's not true. Just some bam winding us up.

9.) 27 Mar 2021 10:23:53
Their was a rumour, Howe was playing golf with Lawwell around October, November time. If true was that his 1st “unofficial” interview?

10.) 27 Mar 2021 11:09:38
Just seen on Twitter he's at the McDonald's drive thru Easterhouse. Caramel Sundae was his preferred option. Just getting fuelled up for the challenges ahead 😱😱😱.

11.) 27 Mar 2021 12:34:49
The Twitter account that’s rumoured to have a connection to the Desmond family has confirmed Keane will Not be the new Celtic manager.

12.) 27 Mar 2021 14:03:03
Don’t talk pish auf1888 ye don’t get caramel sundaes noo.

13.) 27 Mar 2021 14:43:23
Agreed Weewhitey, sure it's only Saturday! lol HH.

14.) 27 Mar 2021 15:42:59
😂😂😂 Must have made Eddie a wee treat. My source is impeccable 😉😉.

15.) 27 Mar 2021 16:08:32
I still think it's some one in a job already I have not got a Scooby who it is but I can't see another reason why it's taking so long I understand and agree we have to get it right but if it was someone out of a job I think we would know atleast who it is by now.

16.) 27 Mar 2021 18:01:56
CovJim didn't Rodgers have a round of golf with Desmond before taking the job too?

17.) 28 Mar 2021 06:31:37
Howe will end up at Newcastle.

18.) 28 Mar 2021 07:18:10
It’s clear that NOBODY will be appointed until the season is over. Dermott said last week on his Q&A that the new chief executive would be 1 of a number of people who have a say in the new appointment before the board would then need to rubber stamp it.
The face we can’t get him to come in earlier to start than pre season would suggest that’s when we will find out who’s the new man in charge.

19.) 28 Mar 2021 09:18:54
If that is the case Gggg, i expect lawwell to burst into the cubicle while kennedy is taking a dump and tell him he has the job.



25 Feb 2021 23:55:43
I think it's Jim or Kennedy depending on rest of season.


1.) 26 Feb 2021 15:35:00
Jim who?

2.) 27 Feb 2021 07:17:58
Dr Who's wee brother.

3.) 27 Feb 2021 11:14:24
Celtic have a biscuit tin mentality. They won't go outside their budget. I'd be surprised if they go for AGrade proven managers. let's get real.

4.) 27 Feb 2021 11:29:13
Aussie Ray, on the most part I am in agreement but we need to remember that once in a while, we step away from that model and bring in someone of the calibre or MON or Rodgers and back them in the transfer market.

Hopefully, this is going to be one of those times were we go big.

Personally, I believe that like me, there are a lot of angry fans who are angry at the club for failing to deliver 10 in a row and they will not be placated by some mediocre manager coming in, way too late.

5.) 27 Feb 2021 12:02:37
We didn't go big to secure the 10 we just went with the cheap option that no fan wanted. The club is in a bit of a mess, there's a massive rebuild needed, Lawwell is away, C.V. has hit us financially and with the possibility next seasons league winners will get direct entry into the CL hopefully we show some ambition with the DoF, Manager and squad additions as player sales should raise the club plenty of money.

6.) 27 Feb 2021 12:57:54
I’m not angry that they failed to deliver the ten, I’m angry over how they’ve gone about this season. I think Lennon did a pretty good job last year, but this season has been poor from before the league kicked off. We didn’t even play that well in the 5-1 opening day win, then the form went down hill. It was clear to the majority who weren’t wearing green goggles from the first the rangers game that Lennon needed replaced, but the board stuck their fingers up at us. That’s why I’m angry.
I’m self employed and will have to have a serious think about renewing or not, but if Kennedy gets the job, or we go for someone like jack Ross, then I’m not giving them my money. This kind of appointment will show that they don’t care about the fans onion, and it’s still only about finances. Unless of course, Kennedy somehow wins 8 games 5-0.

7.) 28 Feb 2021 17:30:53
100% LAW.

With the season starting tomorrow, who do we think will be our main striker this season? Obviously eddy hasn't left yet and if that's the case it will be him. But do we see kyogo playing through the middle or left? And who do we think will be on penalties this season.


1.) 30 Jul 2021 18:47:28
Talking of penalties. wasn't Henrik average at taking penalties. I much preferred Thommo.

2.) 30 Jul 2021 18:48:28
We'll need to bring in a straight replacement for Eddy with the money we get for him. I'd like to see us go for somebody in the mould of Dembele; more of a penalty box striker with speed and power. Somebody like Nsame from Young Boys would be perfect imo. He's 28 so at his peak and his scoring record is drastically better than 1 in 2. He scored 7 goals in Europe last season as well which is an excellent return.

3.) 30 Jul 2021 18:59:12
I wouldn’t play Eddy but I reckon Ange will start him at Hearts because I don’t think Kyogo will start.
After Saturday, I would expect Kyogo to play as a striker, until we make new signings.
Captain Calmac will take the responsibility of hitting our penalties.
My only concern is McGregor always hits his penalties to the keepers left.

4.) 30 Jul 2021 19:06:27
BigBenny, we need a 20+ a season man and the 3 imposters currently at the club can all feck off as far as I'm concerned!

We need a Sutton/ Hartdon type player in plus Nisbet from Hibs.

The new lad I hope has a free role.

5.) 30 Jul 2021 19:15:37
I'd have Turnbull taking them if it was up to me. Not seen enough of Abada but he might be an option as well.

6.) 30 Jul 2021 19:28:56
Kyogo will be our main striker this season, I would put McGregor on pens.

7.) 30 Jul 2021 19:48:37
For what it's worth. I've backed kyogo to be spl top scores this season. I'm not expecting him to in honesty. But at 16/ 1 I think it's a great price. Especially if he ends up playing as the main striker. Even if he ends up on the left, if he hits the ground running he could still be there or thereabouts.

8.) 30 Jul 2021 19:56:25
I don't why people keep saying we need a Harston/ Sutton type player plus Nesbit when we don't play with 2 strikers! Basically then your suggesting we play two different styles one week to the next.

If we sell Edouard and replace him with Nesbit then we'll be an even bigger laughing stock.

I believe we have already signed Edouard's replacement in Furuhasi. I think we will sign another winger to allow Kyogo to play through the middle👍.

9.) 30 Jul 2021 19:57:25
Same here Benny. He was scoring for fun in Japan.

10.) 30 Jul 2021 20:11:37
Kyogo is a left side midfielder why play him out of position? We do need a striker but I hope we don't play another player out of position for the season.

11.) 30 Jul 2021 20:13:06
I mentioned Nsame a few years ago. Seems like an ideal Eddy replacement and scores plenty. He picked up a bit of a bad injury towards the tail end of the season not sure if he's still out injured or not.

12.) 30 Jul 2021 20:37:01
Kyogo can play on the left, but most videos show him playing through the middle👍.

13.) 30 Jul 2021 22:03:44
If ange starts Edouard tomorrow l will be gutted. Can't wait for him to be gone.

14.) 30 Jul 2021 22:13:04
malkybhoy, my thinking is that teams will soon work out how to play us or stop us playing, therefore we need a Plan B hence the Hartson/ Sutton suggestion - someoneto hold the ball up and get on the end if crosses.

Also, last season and so far in this window, we're lightweight, all over the work and not upto a physical battle.

Nisbet, I think there's a player who could do a job at CP for years to come. 🤔.



25 Jul 2021 13:58:33
Bit of a random one, but anyone know why GAA goalkeepers don't move across? Was just thinking there's no way barkas can be a better stopper than the likes of cluxton. I know they ate different sports, but surely these lads would be a good gamble for someone.


1.) 25 Jul 2021 14:58:16
All GAA players are amateur.

2.) 25 Jul 2021 15:38:45
Your right that is a bit of a random one🤣.

3.) 25 Jul 2021 16:14:45
Without a doubt benny. Cluxton is an unreal keeper for Dublin.

4.) 25 Jul 2021 16:40:50
Well maybe not for celtic, I dunno. But surely there's clubs that would want to entice these guys for a few k a week with low risk.



20 May 2021 19:54:18
One player popped into my head earlier on, Steven caulker. I thought we should of took a gamble ​on him when he was leavinge Dundee. It looks like he has done OK out I turkey, and his contact is up. Could be a useful low risk signing with a player maybe wanting to prove himself in the uk.


1.) 21 May 2021 04:49:25
He is not that good in my opinion. Would be duffy mach ii.

2.) 20 May 2021 22:22:15
He's had a decent season, we missed a trick there. He wouldn't have turned his back and ducked out the way that's for sure👍.



04 Apr 2021 17:47:05
Always thought howe will only take the job if he doesn't have an offer in England. Personally feel he would like the Palace job. I seen a news article Earlier suggesting this, if its the case we are better off without. Otherwise he will e away again at the first sniff in a year anyway.




01 Apr 2021 21:05:01
Ed, is the press around howe OTT at the moment? I'm not convinced we are really much closer to knowing who our next manager is. Slightly hypothetical question, but is howe meeting Desmond any different than keane meeting last week?


{Ed007's Note - No it's not OTT, Benny, it looks like it's serious. It depends what Keane and Desmond spoke about it if they met last week, maybe he was asking Keane's opinion of Howe.}

1.) 01 Apr 2021 22:17:59
Could Howe be manager and Keane be a director of football? I’m not sure if he has the skill set for that, but he knows a player and he would have plenty of contacts.

For me forrest will still be first choice on the right at least first half of the season anyway. Also think Taylor and boli will be the 2 lb this season. A 2nd rb is still a must, possibly a cb who can also cover at rb.

I think hearts at 4/ 1 are a short price. Keeping in mind they are promoted. I would expect longer odds on.

Lol this cheered me up. So wa, any reckless or silly tackle against a celtic player, and a player marked down as a bigot? Aul broonie must be set for the Dail now then. is it every player or just the ones who may have a link to the other side? Are the Preston lads bigots for a few heavy tackles?


{Ed007's Note - It's one of the craziest threads we've had for a while 😂 And we go on about "the klan" being stuck in the past!}

SOS BHOY if it had of been my call, I'd of tore up the contract on the spot, if it went through the courts and celtic were liable for the 600k or so in salary, so be it.
